Every once in a while during a session I'm given a Universal teaching that applies to everyone. This past week a wonderful download came through while working with a client regarding Sacred Sleep: honoring the sacredness of sleeping and dream time. Since many of us lead busy lives we wait until we're already tired to prepare for sleep. Sacred Sleep is the process of creating a ceremony to prepare for sleeping.
The Sacred Sleep ceremony involves a simple, but consistent ritual. It could be as easy as taking a relaxing bath, listening to soft music, sitting in silence, meditating, connecting with your pet or loved ones, or even reading. Basically anything that you do to consciously relax your central nervous system before bed prepares you for a sacred sleep experience.
Sacred Sleep honors the transition from consciousness (being awake) to unconsciousness (sleeping). Sleep is such an integral part of life as evidenced by the fact that if we humans don't receive enough of it we become imbalanced, irritable and even sick.
If you live to be 75 years old, you'll spend about 26 years of your life sleeping; another reason to honor this unconscious, yet very sacred part of your existence. When you enter the sleep state you process emotions, your day, challenges, receive inspiration, and dream of places you haven't been to during your waking state. Think of how many times you've dreamt about being somewhere you've never been before. This is just the tip of the iceberg about why sacred sleep, consciously preparing to sleep, is so important.
I invite you to incorporate a Sacred Sleep ritual into your daily routine to honor this wonderful part of your existence that you may not have a waking memory of, but most certainly affects your waking life.
Everyday I enjoy a physical meditation and prayer when I take my morning hike in the oak groves. Whenever I ask the Universe a question in the groves I always receive an incredibly insightful answer. The other day I asked Sacred Spirit to teach me something new about the chakra system, this is what I received:
The entire chakra system organizes itself around its strongest chakra. Becoming conscious of the totality of the chakra system by nurturing each one, allows for an increase in the distribution of vital force energy into each chakra. As each chakra is strengthened, it expands allowing vital force energy to naturally circulate throughout the entire energy body.
Just as the ancients did, we're finally beginning to understand the importance of our own energy bodies, including the chakra system. Supporting your energetic system (like every other system of your body) by maintaining a healthy energy diet and nurturing the health of your chakra system guarantees you to have a healthier BodyMindSpiritSoul.
Meditating with Blue Kyanite is a powerful healer that brings forth tranquility and calm and is an excellent crystal to effortlessly bring all of the chakras into alignment. Blue Kyanite never needs cleansing and doesn't accumulate negative vibrations. The next time you're meditating try holding a blue kyanite in your left hand and see how it feels.
Did you know you can use your intuition to ask the Universe anything? And that you WILL receive a response. Your gift of intuition was given to help you receive helpful information about your life and your environment.
As a distillation of pure spirit, you were born with the ability to communicate with the spirit realm through your clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance, clairsentience, and other extra sensory perceptions. You already have the innate ability to communicate with pure energy and pure spirit within you. This is very important to remember. I believe part of just about everyone's journey in these times is to rediscover this very beautiful aspect of the human being. The more you practice using your intuition and communicate with spirit energy of the world around you, the more you'll gain a greater awareness and understanding of YOU.
I'm consistently reminded by the Universe at how magnificent we humans are. During my morning run a couple of weeks ago I was personally reminded at how amazing the body is. As I was running along the trail I looked down at my legs and I literally thought to myself, "Wow, my legs, knees, ankles, feet and muscles are all working together right now to propel me forward." It was such a beautiful feeling to appreciate what my body was doing for ME in that very moment. I had the desire to run right at that very moment and I was. My body didn't resist, my mind didn't resist and I was so grateful that I was doing exactly what I wanted it to do...run.
As I went about my day after this gracious feeling and in the days following I started looking at the people around me recognizing that they're all such magnificent spirits using their bodies as vehicles to move about the world. How awesome is that? We're all inhabiting a physical form so we can express ourselves exactly how WE want to with it. It's extraordinary.
We use our voices to say whatever we want. we use our brains to think, we move our arms where we want, our legs, and we use our eyes to look at whatever we want - that's TRUE freedom. We don't realize how free we are until we start to examine what our bodies do for us. We can gain weight, or we can lose it. We can get up, we move it, we strengthen it, or we can sit around and let it languish. We can express our thoughts, or not. We can share our "I love you's" or not. We have the power to do whatever we want with ourselves. Just think about that for a moment...
Take the time today, tomorrow, this year to truly appreciate your vehicle for spiritual expression - your physical body. It's such an awesome concept to ponder and appreciate. I think you'll be just as awestruck as I was during my run a couple of weeks ago.
And above all else, remember, we were born to ENJOY life, not suffer it. Just about every spirit who has come to me to give a client a message, the message was to enjoy life. Enjoy Life. Suffering is an old paradigm that is outmoded and outdated. We've chosen to incarnate during these times to acknowledge, recognize, let go, and to move forward. If you're not moving forward in your life, think about the ways that you can. It can be as simple as forgiving someone from your past; or forgiving yourself for something you did in the past. Life doesn't want you to harbor old resentments and hurts. Life wants to be LIVED and lived NOW. Like the adage says: Life is a Present, so live IN the Present.
May you know that just by breathing you're already blessed.
There are so many forms of meditation. One form of meditation is called open-monitoring meditation. Open monitoring meditation is a form of meditation where you pay attention to ALL of the things happening around you. You're focused on noticing (being aware) of EVERYTHING in your environment WITHOUT reacting to anything.
The beauty of mediation is that it teaches you discipline and focus. With open monitoring meditation you learn how to be disciplined at NOT reacting, especially if you're normally inclined to do so. The next time your out in the world, try open monitoring meditation - by simply being aware of your surroundings, allowing your focus to be on awareness. This is a wonderful way to practice being fully present wherever you are, without feeling compelled to engage: you're consciously bearing witness to life as it is as it's being expressed and being completely aware of its expression.
Clairsentience is the intuitive sense that Empaths naturally have. Clairsentience allows Empaths to sense another’s personal feelings and emotions where they actually FEEL the other person’s feelings very easily.
Have you ever been around someone who's crying and then find yourself crying too? This was your Clairsentience at work. While it can be a very beneficial attribute for understanding others and connecting with those you love, it can be overwhelming if it's always activated. Meaning if you're always using your clairsentience to tune into your environment, you can become over stimulated with the amount of emotional energy around you and become overwhelmed emotionally. When this happens it can make you feel overwhelmed, exhausted, irritable and like you just need to take a big nap.
Today I invite you to use your clairsentience like your eyesight: consciously choose want you want to emotionally focus on. If you don't feel emotionally comfortable around someone, then consciously "tune out" of their energy by saying to yourself, "this is not mine."
You can still coexist in the world, without having to completely subject yourself emotionally. You can use your other senses to accurately interpret your environment, without expending your emotional energy to do so.
The Auric Field is also known as the Human Energy Field. It's a luminous body (light body/spirit body) that surrounds us. It's energy is constantly communicating with the physical body and chakras. It emits a vibrational extension of your natural frequency. Every single life form on the planet from the tiniest insect, to an elephant to a tree radiates a vibrational frequency through their auric field. This is actually what some intuitives access to provide spiritual readings. Your aura is always changing to reflect your current vibrational resonance.
Learning about the Esoteric is a lot like putting pieces of the cosmic puzzle together, making sense of it, and putting it into order so we may articulate it to others in a more digestible form to be understood, acknowledged and embraced. There’s so much more to God and Consciousness than what we experience with our physical senses. Our sixth sense, our intuitive awareness, is an essential component of our evolution and is significant for our human development.
Color Therapy, also known as Chromotherapy, is a therapeutic modality that utilizes the colors of the light spectrum. It's a form of vibrational medicine that restores vibrational harmony to regain a state of well being to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Color is the language of emotions. Sound is the language of the mind.
Color can be applied and absorbed into the body in the following ways:
1. The Sun
2. The eyes
3. The Breath - we breathe in color
6. Solarized Water
Take some time today to reflect on the colors that resonate with you, knowing that on many different levels this spectrum of colored Light is balancing, healing, and uplifting you to increase your vibration and bring forth harmony in your life.
1. Touch. Receive a relaxing massage to nurture your sacral chakra.
2. Water. Swimming, taking a bath or being in water is very healing to the sacral chakra.
3. Creative expression.
4. Aromatherapy: Jasmine, Rose, Ylang ylang, Sandalwood, Clary Sage, & Musk.
5. Sound therapy: Chanting “VAM” or “BA” in the key of D. The sacral chakra resonates to the key of D.
6. Crystal therapy: Carnelian, Citrine, Red Jasper, Hematite, Amber, Orange Calcite, Blue Jasper, Topaz.
7. Foods to Eat: Almonds, Cinnamon, Strawberries, Melon, Coconut, Oranges, Mandarins, Water
All pretty simple tips to support the well-being of your own second chakra. Try just a few this week and see how you feel.
The entire chakra system organizes around the strongest chakra keeping it strong and anchored, until we become conscious of the totality of our chakra system.
We now live in a time that we're beginning to understand our own energy bodies, including the chakra system. Just as the ancients understood the importance of energy and how powerful it is we're beginning to have this same understanding.
The more we understand our own energy body and the system of our chakras (which is just like any other system of our body) and maintain a healthy energy diet, the healthier lives we will live.
When we nurture the health of our entire chakra system as a unit, all chakras will function at optimum supporting the health and well-being of the totality of our existence: BodyMindSpiritSoul.
Considered the Divine Code, the number 9 brings forth heightened vibrational frequencies. Nine represents patience, harmony, inspiration and perfection (think, it takes nine months to create a human being). Considered sacred in Egypt and in Greece, the energy of number nine conveys attainment, satisfaction, intellectual power, inventiveness, recognition of your own attributes, accomplishment, and achievement.
Take notice of the next time you see number Nine as you're out and about in the world. View 9 as a Godwink from the Universe to you to make a positive impact on the world
My very first energy healing class was Color Therapy which changed the course of my life. Not only because I learned the power of color, but because a whole new world opened up for me and it's where I learned I had intuitive healing abilities. After taking this class I couldn't get enough of color. I even painted each room of my house a different color. My husband at the time took particular issue with the color orange that I used to paint our living room with. In hindsight, I agree, having four walls painted orange was a bit hyper-stimulating. Now my stepdaughter has an orange wall in her bedroom (funny how orange is still in my world). Since learning about the power of color I pay attention to the colors that I put on my body, that are in my home, and the colors I surround myself with. Did you know that natural healing energy comes in four forms? Sound, Vibration, Light and Color.
Existing for thousands of years, Chromotherapy (as it's also called) was used in Atlantean temples to treat physical, emotional and mental issues. These healing temples had crystal domes that diffused colored light into each room as the sunlight shone through. Records from 1550 BC document how Egyptians cured with color therapy in their healing temples.
Pythagoras, Plato and Aristotle developed early theories about light and color. Greece's healing temples also used color therapy with gemstones and light. Interestingly, China still diagnoses illness by the color of the pulse: a red pulse indicates a numbness in the heart, and a yellow pulse reveals a healthy stomach. Ancient India with Ayurvedic medicine also treated ills with colored gemstones and light.
Chromotherapy's been successfully used as a spiritual healing technology for ages and continues to be practiced successfully today. This week I invite you to take notice of the colors you're drawn to and allow yourself to receive their natural healing benefits.
When someone chooses to take a drug, or drugs in general, they're agreeing to have a relationship with the spirit of the drug which changes their consciousness and creates what we call an addiction.
An energy healer who works with someone addicted to drugs may intuitively perceive lower/slower vibrational energies, entities, and discarnated spirits lurking or hanging around the person's energy field, or residing within the physical body. If an addicted person comes to have an energy healing session they have a strong possibility of being healed IF they're truly committed to severing their connection with the spirits of the drugs by "staying clean" and abstaining from further drug use, If they aren't fully committed to severing their relationship with the drugs any energy work done is pretty futile.
When working with someone who has no desire to stop using at least be mindful as the healer that whatever energy clearing that occurs may return in another form at that same frequency.
By choosing to numb out and not be full present in the body through habitually altering their state of consciousness, the addicted person opens the doors for entities, spirits and energies to express THEIR nature through the host's (the addict) physical body and consciousness. There can be volumes written about addiction from the physical components to the soul components, this is just a basic overview of what I have seen when working with addicts - which is pretty rare. I usually will see addicts when they're in the recovery phase.
I can say with certainty though, when an addicted person is ready to proclaim their dominion and reclaim the fullness of their own Light and Divine Nature, miracles can happen and recovery of Self and Wholeness is assured.
Trust is such an important component to developing your intuition and for living life in general. It's so important to trust yourself, the world around you, your loved ones, and life. It's important to learn how to truly trust because it frees you up to live life to its fullest, most complete and most joyous.
When you operate from distrust you're more suspicious, more fearful and lose vital life force energy.
Here are a few mantras to help you develop a trusting nature. I strongly believe than when you operate from a trusting spirit you trust yourself and your judgment to live a happier, loving and joy-filled life.
Print out the following mantras: stick them on your bathroom mirror, in your car, at your desk, wherever you need to remember to trust yourself:
I trust the World.
I trust Myself.
I trust Life.
I simply Trust...
The invigoration you experience through meditation is as beneficial as a good night’s sleep. Meditation teaches you to enter an altered state of consciousness at-will. Meditation is excellent for preventing stress and releases accumulated stress already in the body. Meditation experiences are deeply personal and unique, so it doesn’t matter how you meditate or what form of meditation you use - there's no right way or wrong way to meditate.
Did you know the Sacral Chakra (the 2nd chakra) magnetizes and manifests through the energy of emotion (not to be confused with intensive emotions)?
Emotional energy held in the sacral chakra is the attractor for what you manifest in your life. Your ideas and dreams come to life through your emotional awareness. Emotional wellbeing is just as important as being mindful of your thoughts and intentions. When you have greater awareness of what you’re manifesting and HOW you're doing so, you'll find that creating the life you want becomes easier and more fluid.
