When it comes to our health and well-being, hypnotherapists are valuable caregivers who are always ready and available to serve us. They are like ‘personal chefs’ who help us by feeding our subconscious mind recipes for self-fulfillment.
Whatever it is that you wish to do in your life, your mind is the ‘master blender.’ First you must know what you want and then you need to convince yourself to consume it.
Change is not always easy and you need to continuously reinforce and nourish the thought, in order to achieve it. If you desire to be healthy, you must think healthy, positive thoughts. You must have a healthy attitude toward others, as well as yourself. You must talk positive, and not negative. You also need to forgive others, as well as yourself. Also, when you are in good company, good things happen. Surround yourself with good people and think good thoughts, for this is truly the good life. Read the rest of this entry »
It is recommended to begin all spiritual activities, meditations, intuitive development exercises, as well as energy or healing work, with a basic psychic protection routine. A well-designed grounding, centering and shielding meditation or visualization exercise will create a solid safeguard and meditative energy foundation for any kind of spiritual practice session.
Centering is the process of anchoring and centralizing your inner, non-physical being within your physical body, while grounding (or earthing) refers to strengthening or reaffirming your connection with physical reality, the secular world and planet Earth.
Centering and grounding is therefore aimed at stabilizing yourself energetically, by firmly setting a mindful, harmonious balance between your body and soul, between the spiritual and the secular, between the physical and the metaphysical. Being grounded and centered is to feel safe and securely anchored in the physical world, while opening up to increased energy flow, and metaphysical or spiritual input. Read the rest of this entry »
What is spiritual serenity, and how does one get to such an enlightened place? I’ve put forth this question many times throughout my life, and I’ve also had it asked of me. People hear what I do for a living and they immediately assume I walk around chanting Buddhist chants, or waving sage throughout my sacred space 24 hours a day. If only!
I don’t have the answers any more than the next person does. There are some things I have learned and seen, as I am sure I have yet more to learn and see. It is an endless cycle of not knowing and then knowing, the same cycle we all go through. The same lessons. It is only in how we apply them that we become different. We grow differently and start to use parts of ourselves that perhaps someone else, who is growing ‘at their own pace’ may not be using yet. And that is okay. Read the rest of this entry »
When I first began to converse with Spirit, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I was receiving these messages and listening to them, but I never really put much thought into it. It wasn’t until I consciously acknowledged this conversation was happening, that the momentum really started to build. It was then that I realized my guides had been with me all along!
In my experience, the most important step you can take in opening a conversation with Spirit, is to acknowledge that this is your intent. Your angels and guides are always with you – but they need your permission to help you! Remember to ask them often to be near you and to help you and guide you.
When you need direction, ask them for a sign. Then be patient and watchful. Spirit communicates in many ways, sometimes using number sequences, or animals, maybe a song you hear over and over again wherever you go. These are just a few examples, but Spirit will try to get your attention any way it can and will typically use signs and symbols that will be meaningful to you specifically. It’s important to be open to receiving these messages, and not to dismiss any ‘coincidences’ you may encounter. Read the rest of this entry »
It is so very cool what miracles can happen when we take the time to relax and become aware of our surroundings, and our psychic antenna is open to connect with those who are on the same frequency.
I was at the beach over the summer, sitting on my beach towel in a deeply blissful, meditative state of mind. I had my umbrella set up, and a cooler with some water and healthy snacks – totally prepared for a relaxing day of doing absolutely nothing!
I took some deep breaths and looked out over the horizon, and focused on the waves. I was allowing whatever personal spiritual messages might come to my awareness. I was very much connected to what spirit was wanting me to know. Whatever is meant to happen will happen, but only in Divine Timing. We can never force anything, but all good things do indeed come to those who relax and allow the ebb and flow to reveal everything in perfect timing.
Mars returns to its position in an individual’s natal chart approximately every two years. In Astrology this event is known as a Mars Return. It is analogous to a Solar Return, which happens when the transiting Sun returns to the position of the individual’s natal Sun, otherwise known as our birthday! Obviously, we do not celebrate our Mars Returns in the same way as our Solar Returns, although Mars does bring with it some significant themes when it crops up again in our chart.
Mars is the planet traditionally associated with the male gender, and male roles. It represents competition, sports, and inner drive and motivation. It is also associated with the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain, which provides individuals with a sense of reward for their efforts. Mars is further associated with the hormone testosterone and governs raw sexual desires and passion. Read the rest of this entry »
As a parent, I’m very familiar with the disciplinary technique known as the time-out. I personally do not use this method for my two children, but I’ve read lots of parental literature that discusses the concept. I’ve also dealt with daycare providers and teachers who use this technique with their students.
I recently had some difficult feelings surface in my own life, as I continue to work on my crown chakra. After doing some craniosacral work, I experienced feelings of unworthiness considering my new career path. I heard a toxic inner voice whispering, “You’ll never be good enough, no matter which career path you choose.”
Then I took a time-out. I took some days off from doing psychic work. I walked. I had a massage. I nourished my soul. Read the rest of this entry »
We never push. We never force. Our wish is never to overwhelm. So, if you are feeling any of these emotions during the current energy explosion, ask your spiritual council, your ascended masters, and your angels, to slow down.
We would like you to imagine a gauge within your mind. A gauge that you have full, total and complete control over. This gauge you can either turn up, if you wish to experience more, or you can turn down if you are feeling overwhelmed or that things are going too fast. Too much change may be occurring for you to be able to keep up with. Or you can simply fine-tune the gauge like a radio tuning in to your favorite station. Read the rest of this entry »
