This morning, I ran into one of my friends in our little Spanish town, and we decided to grab a coffee and catch up. I was delighted at how she took an interest in my Om/Aum pendant. She commented on how I seemed to treat my pendant as something rather sacred, and with respect – an interesting observation! She loved the flow of the shapes, and asked if the pendant had any specific meaning.
I had to remove the pendant and study it closely to try and remember what I was taught years ago, in order to give her a brief description to the best of my ability. One by one I tried to connect with each swirl in the design and was surprised that I had remembered quite a lot of what my mentor had taught me. It was a long time ago, when we used the Om/Aum chant in our meditation sessions.
With my pendant on the table I began to explain the meaning of the dot at the top of the symbol, and recalled that this related to the silence after chanting Om/Aum. It represents the Enlightened Self, and is known as the transcendental state of Turiya. Read the rest of this entry »
I believe that everyone has the ability to read and understand the energy around them. The universe is made up of energy and people are connected to each other through that energy. There are ways in which people can tune into this energy to better understand their world.
So many times the answers we are looking for are right in front of us, but with the business of our lives and things going on around us, we sometimes tune that energy out. There are things you can do to better empower yourself to tune into others’ energy. By doing this you will be able to unlock answers in your own life.
First thing to do is make sure to eliminate as much stress in your life as possible. Stress will block out energy around you and distract you from being able to make sound decisions. There are many ways to tune out stress, such as learning to meditate, doing Yoga, or any physical activity or recreational outlet. Once you learn to block out stress and find a good balance of calm in your life you will start to notice the energy all around you. Read the rest of this entry »
‘Forgettery’ is a game we all engage in from time to time. We see this game played out in relationship dramas, career concerns, or even just in a sense of generalized anxiety. It occurs when we forget who we really are, and find ourselves out of alignment with our Soul.
It can manifest in feelings of not being enough – a victim, not smart enough, being broken, or disconnected and separate from others. In my daily Tarot card draws, it often comes up for me as the Star card reversed, or maybe the Eight, or Nine of Swords.
So what happens when we find ourselves here? The first step out is to recognize what is happening. Once we can acknowledge this ‘not-so-good’ feeling, we can sit with it for a while and then recognize that this feeling is coming from our thoughts… and thoughts can be changed. We are deserving and worthy of everything we desire. Why not? We can heal this. Read the rest of this entry »
If you’ve been feeling stuck, depressed, or just in need of change, tap into the power of Feng Shui. This ancient Chinese art, of arranging the home for maximum energetic potential, is easier than you think to apply in your everyday life.
The best way to start is to create routines and rituals for yourself. Everything in the natural world exists according to a series of daily patterns or routines, and we are no different! Take time each day to meditate, incorporate gentle physical activity such as a walk or yoga, sit down and eat mindfully at each meal. It’s also crucial to create a sacred space to escape from the stresses and sensory input of the modern world.
Are you the kind of person who finds it difficult to start things? Make a dream board filled with visual representations of your hopes, dreams, and aspirations, then place it where you can see it multiple times a day. Read the rest of this entry »
I think having intuitive abilities, such as knowing things before they happen, seeing auras, and sensing negative and positive energy, is something we all can do. I just had a real knack for tapping into that part of my mind, because I spent a lot of time by myself in the outdoors, or in my bedroom, and steered clear of drama and human chaos. Also, I hardly ever was exposed to electromagnetic poisoning by way of modern technology.
I was not raised Catholic, but while on a walk one day, I found behind a church a lineup of saint statues. At the end of the row was Mother Mary. I remember very clearly sitting in front of her sculpture and seeing an angel next to her. I prayed, as I was taught to do from a very young age, to be shown what I will be doing in my future. I wished to see who I will be, or at least get a glimpse of what lay ahead for me. Read the rest of this entry »
The next wave has moved through and is now beginning to settle around you. Structures are beginning to collapse and break down. Structures that lack integrity, honor and justice. So, even though it might look chaotic, trust and know that there is a higher order taking over.
You are needed now. Step into your power as a lightworker, because whether you realize it or not, you are assisting in this new, higher order that is being created.
As the energy on this planet continues this process of transformation you may begin to feel differently in your physical human body. Some of you are experiencing feelings of heaviness, or being in ‘sludge.’
You might teeter totter between that feeling of non-doing and simply wanting to be, with no agenda and a feeling of lightness, as if you are floating freely. It may be difficult to concentrate, whether it’s reading a book or engaging in conversation with others. This lack of focus is simply a symptom that your body is trying to assimilate the new energy that we have brought. Read the rest of this entry »
To some individuals, being mindful while on the go might seem a contradiction in itself. However, the truth of the matter is that there are a plethora of ways to cultivate the art of mindfulness that do not involve simply sitting still.
People turn to mindfulness for many reasons. For example, they may have a medical condition that needs managing, work issues that require resolving, or just simply want to feel more present in their everyday lives. With the pace of modern life, it is clear to see why people become easily distracted and lead somewhat complicated lives as a result – all of which can be both emotionally and physically draining.
Whatever the reasons may be as to why a person turns to mindfulness, it should, indeed, help them to create a more balanced lifestyle. That said, mindfulness should not be seen as a magical cure-all, but more an efficient way of relating to personal issues differently. Read the rest of this entry »
Whether or not you have children, we must all support the new generation, the rainbow children, the indigo and crystal children. They have come to assist in this planet’s ascension and healing. They are most revered and honored for their work here on this planet.
