Most people acknowledge the fact that the Moon and Sun direct the oceans, but they ignore links between the planets and human behavior and well-being.
Here is a list of just ten fascinating ways in which the planets affect us:
1. Surgery at the time of a Full Moon carries a much greater risk of severe bleeding
2. More babies are conceived under a waxing Moon
3. Sun spots interfere with communication equipment
4. Tree sap rises under a waxing or full Moon Read the rest of this entry »
I am sometimes asked during readings to explain what Reiki is and how it is used. Reiki is basically a Japanese form of healing using your hands to manipulate energy and remove blockages in energy flow. Reiki offer many health benefits, including stress reduction, relaxation and wellness.
Reiki reduces the tension that is caused by stress, and this can help to lower blood pressure and improve sleeping habits. It will also make you think more clearly, so better judgment is used in everyday life. Reiki promotes wholeness of your body, mind and spirit. Reiki is also a extremely good way to release toxins and help the body to be cleansed. Reiki also promotes spiritual development and emotional growth. Read the rest of this entry »
The Snake Year comes sixth in the cycle of the zodiac and reoccurs every 12th year. This means that you are a Snake if you were born in 1941, 1953, 1965, 1989 or 2001. Ancient Chinese wisdom states that if you have a snake in your house your family will never go hungry, because a snake is said to be sage, wise and a good protector of his or her family’s belongings and home.
The Chinese Zodiac is a lunar-based calendar and the Chinese New Year is sometimes referred to as The Lunar New Year. The cycle flows as follows: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Hare, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar. Read the rest of this entry »
We vibrate to color. Our chakras have different colors, as do our auras, and these are constantly changing based on our circumstances, mood, and health.
Science has caught up with the spiritual arts with clinical trials that use blue light-emitting diode (LED) lights for wound healing and treating some mood disorders, as well as infra red for mood disorders. The Ayurvedic system of healing goes further, incorporating the use of gemstones, which is also color based, for healing, and mood enhancement.
I like to teach people to work intuitively with color as a starting point, rather than teaching a prescribed color therapy system, as I feel this develops more of an initial feel for color. One can find a formal system later, if so desired. Read the rest of this entry »
Good morning fellow seekers and believers. A warm welcome also to ye of little faith. It is indeed a blessing to greet you at the dawn of yet another perfect Solstice day in this miraculous annual progression of human history. It is December 21st, 2012 and it is exactly 11:11 GMT, the official time of the Solstice. Take a deep breath, you are indeed still alive!
If you are one of the more adventurous and spirited among us, you may very well find yourself today on a Mayan galactic alignment cruise or magical pilgrimage to the Chichen Itza in the Mexican state of Yucatan, or at Stonehenge in the United Kingdom, waiting for the first light to break on the horizon. I can only imagine how much fun you must be having! Read the rest of this entry »
We all have had experiences of emotional scarring in our lives. This is simply part of being human and it is also part of the growing and learning experience. However, ways exist in which you can encourage healing and reduction of trauma.
The first step in emotional healing is to recognize that everything in life, every decision, every relationship, every dream has its place in the ongoing path to wholeness. Recognize and feel your own pain. Accept this pain as part of your path. Then, let it go.
As you allow yourself to feel, rather than deny or suffocate your feelings, a calmness and peace will descend upon you. You must feel the emotions to learn the lessons you are meant to learn. Through denial, victimization, blaming and other defense mechanisms, we often deny ourselves the ability to learn and thus we must learn the same lesson another way. Read the rest of this entry »
I have discovered at different times in my life how powerful intention, when guided from the heart, can be. Again, more recently, I experienced this when it was important for me to manifest some prosperity for my family and get my own health issues back on track.
I was specific in setting my intention regarding the amount of money I needed to manifest in order to meet my family’s needs. I also set the intention to attract to me the information which would help me heal and return my sense of well-being.
Intention is a motivational force of energy and it’s a force to be reckoned with when our intention is for the highest good of all individuals involved. When we set our intention, we are focusing on positive visualizations and affirmations to help steer our lives in a desired direction. Read the rest of this entry »
If a meal or a beverage is prepared with love, the very intention behind the preparation has to be more beneficial to our system and to our sense of well-being. This idea has often occurred to me over the years and there was confirmation of this in various Buddhist articles I happened to stumble across.
Just like our body, mind and spirit, food is made of energy. Energy is further transmitted by touch, and good or bad energy can be transmitted by contact. Even without speaking, subtle invisible thought-forms can also pass from one person to another when one person prepares food and another eats it.
So, as your sensitivity increases with your spiritual growth, blessing your food will be especially important if you consume foodstuff or beverages prepared by strangers. If you just think about how many people are involved in negative pursuits, doing a blessing only makes sense. Low vibration foodstuffs also originate where they’ve been genetically altered, not to mention livestock reared in terrible conditions. Read the rest of this entry »
