Have you ever come home from a shopping trip and noticed how much packaging was left over from putting your various items away? Yes, we’ve made technological advances with energy conservation and fuel efficiency, but has that contributed to us consuming less instead of more? Is it still possible for us to be satisfied with a simpler existence? Read the rest of this entry »
Something recently came to mind that I used to do long ago, when working with clients who requested chakra readings. I called the technique I created ‘The Water Wheel’ and it is my pleasure to share this with you.
Water is a great cleanser. Its fluidity and continuity makes it one of our world’s most formidable allies, or our worst enemy, depending on how Mother Nature chooses to express herself.
Our bodies are 98% water and, as it is with the cycle of the ocean’s tides, we are subconsciously also very ‘moved’ by the power of water. The Water Wheel signifies motion. It goes in a circle but it also goes forward within that circle. The Water Wheel cleanses our chakras with the motion of water and the movement of the wheel.
The chakras are the energy centers of the body and they sometimes become ‘clogged up by stuff’, such as negative emotions of fear, envy, anger or lust. When this blockage occurs we tend to feel ‘bogged down’, with no energy to get to where we want to be, be it mentally, physically or emotionally. A chakra cleansing helps to open the door for that built up energy in the affected chakra areas to dissipate. Read the rest of this entry »
Times are hard for everyone right now, but when our circumstances become challenging we should also look at the good things in our lives, instead of focusing on the negative. I am also guilty of letting life’s challenge’s get to me from time to time.
Have you ever heard the Rolling Stones song You can’t always get what you want? If we try to remember that we always get what we need and are never given more that we can handle, our lives would be a lot simpler and much less stressful.
Sometimes it’s hard to accept that things always work out for us, as long as we work through whatever problems we are faced with. It may not be easy to believe, but it is very true. Think about it. How many times have we been in a bad situation or had to deal with an issue in our life that seemed impossible to overcome, but somehow it always seems to works out. Read the rest of this entry »
The other day someone I worked with commissioned me to do some work for them, and made the assumption that people of my caliber, or people in our profession, are associated with some power or arts of a darker origin.
He meant it as innocently as possible, and I hearkened back to the middle ages. But I have to remind myself that not everyone is familiar with what a psychic is.
To be psychic means, literally, from the Greek, ‘mindly’ or ‘of the mind’. This is interesting as it seems to hint at previous thinking having not been superstitious, but possibly appreciative of the power of the mind. The connotation becomes difficult when it is associated with power. Read the rest of this entry »
The demanding role to act in a certain manner with different faces begins when we are very young. We are taught to perform in many diverse roles. As children we are taught right from wrong, good from bad, and how we are expected to act according to the codes of the community.
From our parents, we quickly learn what responses will get us what we want in life. In school, we are expected to act within a certain protocol with teachers and other students. At play, we are expected to behave and participate within the peer group. Read the rest of this entry »
In my life on this great Earth, I have come to the realization that there is one weapon which every human being possesses. It is the tongue.
The tongue can destroy a person’s reputation, cause others to question the sincerity of a man or woman, cause a fellow co-worker to lose their job, pit neighbor against neighbor. Our tongues can destroy a good deed and turn it into something vicious and untrue. Someone once said that before you say something about someone or something, ask yourself this: what purpose will it serve to verbalize my thoughts? If your answer is not one hundred percent positive, don’t say it! Read the rest of this entry »
All is as it should be. Each moment that you both build on your ‘newer’ structure of reality, the old structures become less tenable, unable to support whatever beliefs that you have remaining.
You get no comfort or security on multiple levels now from the old structure. So it is well for you to continue to make choices that enable you to be open and available for other opportunities.
Opportunities come from all directions, inclusive of those that you can immediately see. When we ask you to unlimit yourself in this, it translates into two things: Read the rest of this entry »
For example, try going for a walk to collect things from the outdoors that you can enjoy, such as pretty rocks or cattails.
Look for the things that represent the outdoors and don’t be afraid to let them come indoors with you.
Doing so can be a beautiful reminder of the full blooms of summer and will invite additional energies from the plant kingdom into your domain, recharging and refreshing one’s spirit. If you have children this can be incorporated into a really fun family activity that children will love participating in. Read the rest of this entry »
