An Angel Requests Your Help

Dear fellow light-workers, Today I was at Pershing State Park in Laclede MO, and the guardian angel of the park gave me a mantra to share with y’all: “We are in harmony, acting as one.” The angel asked that we say this mantra 324 times each day (108 x 3) until the shift of 12/12/12. ♥

Reiki 2

Recently, Reiki Master Julie Bowen gave Henry and I the Reiki 2 attunement. It was a different sensation and experience than the first attunement. The energy felt deeper and more complex. I saw an image of myself holding Henry, our actually what looked like a night sky full of stars in the shape of my baby, and I received the message that to nurture one is to nurture all.

Since then I have become acquainted with my Reiki spirit guide, who, interestingly enough, looks like the creature pictured on the cover of this book (pictured). That image fascinated and drew me when I was young and now I know why. Interacting with this guide has changed my mentality about Reiki in many small ways that I find impossible to put into words. I arm grateful for and fascinated by this spiritual adventure.

Reiki 1 Attunement

My dear friend and Reiki Master Julie Bowen did me the honor of teaching and attuning me to Level 1 Reiki. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, Reiki is a type of energy work that promotes stress-relief, relaxation and healing. It is a hands-on technique.

The training itself was fairly straightforward and simple. (I am reinforcing it in my mind by reading Essential Reiki by Diane Stein.) The attunement was an incredible experience. At first I felt the energy coming down through my crown chakra like warm, golden nectar, dripping down into me. Then the energy flowed stronger, filling me with white light that poured through my body out my hands, feet and throat. Julie held my hands, one at a time, and I saw the energy flow through them to my arms and to all my chakras, combining into a whirlwind of energy within me. Towards the end, the energy all focused in my womb, where my soon-to-be-born child is and I was blessed by images of me and my child interacting after his birth.

Julie told me that she’s never felt the energy just drop down into someone the way it did with me. She said she usually has to force it somewhat. I know I was very ready to receive a way to help others, and I am so grateful for this attunement. In the few days since this happened, I’ve used Reiki in myself, my pets, my friends and my partner with beautiful results. I am excited to feel the changes within myself and excited to see what I will be blessed to do with this gift in the future.

Help! I’m Sensitive (eBook Review)

Ronni Ann Hall is a teacher and empath whose blog I’ve been following for quite a while now. I’e also taken one of her fairy classes and greatly enjoyed it. So when she asked me to be on the blog tour for her new ebook Help! I’m Sensitive: 50 Tools for the Sensitive to Help You Survive & Thrive , I jumped at the chance!

Help! I’m Sensitive is a practical guide for dealing with the many overwhelming aspects of being a sensitive person or an empath. Ronni starts her book with a letter to the sensitive in which she states that sensitivity is something we often try to ignore because of how we are perceived by others or because it is too painful. She reminds us that “you were made this way for a bigger purpose,” and that self-acceptance is the first step to finding balance.

Ronni offers solutions to 50 different problems including: spiritual perfectionism, depression, psychic vampires, addiction, empathic overload, headaches, sensitive skin, nightmares and so much more! For instance, her solution to getting too involved in other people’s lives (something I often get caught up in!) is to use “duck energy” or compassionate detachment. She writes, “Let it go. Just swim along in the sea and don’t get lost in others’ floods. They are swimming along too, the best they can.”

Her solution to holding in negativity is to “clear it out gently” via meditation with a rock or crystal. “Ask the rock or crystal to transmute the negative energy you’ve taken on and send the energy into the rock as you hold it.” I adore rocks and crystals, but I so often forget that I can ask them to serve me in this way!

Several of Ronni’s solutions harmonize with messages I’ve been told by my guides over the years — really good advice that I had completely forgotten about. It was beautiful and affirming to read her truth and wisdom, and I greatly appreciated the many solutions I hadn’t thought about before – like making an Everything I Love book to look through on days when I’m having a case of the mean reds. Ronni intends her book to be something you can go back to when you’re upset, like looking up how to deal with a physical ailment, and I can already tell it’s something I’ll be referencing often in the near future.

Find out more about Ronni on her art site or blog. You can read more about and order Help! I’m Sensitive: 50 Tools for the Sensitive to Help You Survive & Thrive by following this link!

Helpful Crystals for Consciousness Shifting

I’ve been discovering new crystals to aid me and re-discovering ones that I’ve had for a while. I’ve been amazed at how many I’ve felt drawn to all have in common the ability to aid in consciousness shifting in one way or another. I wanted to share them with you.

Green Calcite – Green calcite can assist in dissolving old rigid belief systems, restoring balance to your mind. It aids any transition from a stagnant to a positive environment. It is also used to stimulate the immune system and absorb negative energy. (Source)

Ruby in Ziosite – This stone has a strong spiritual nature, that may alter your consciousness, and give you access to your soul memory, to help you with spiritual learning. It supplies a vibration that creates an altered state of consciousness to help you to understand yourself and the world around you. Its vibration within the third eye chakra then combines with the heart chakra as it enhances the energetic and neural connections between your brain and your heart. Its vibration is powerful at the heart chakra… Centered there it encourages the mind to hear the desires of the heart and to understand them enough to accomplish what is needed. (Source)

Selenite – Selenite exists at the doorway between spirit and nature. It is the fiber holding these two worlds in communication with each other and is a receiver for information from the causal plane. It provides its owner with more facility to reach these planes and communicate with the higher spiritually evolved beings, masters and teachers who are willing to use Selenite as a means of communication. Selenite comes originally from ancient oceans and seas. So it is a water element just as the emotions are associated with the element water. . It has been found that Selenite has a direct effect upon balancing the emotions. That feeling of complete balance when you are in a very spiritual state of calm and joy, that is the sense of spiritual light force that Selenite can bring to you. (Source)

Rose Quartz – Often called the “Love Stone” or the “Heart Stone”, it is a gem of unconditional love that opens oneself to all forms of love, self love, family love, platonic love, romantic love. This quartz will give the proper enhancement of love in virtually any situation. Emotionally rose quartz brings gentleness, forgiveness, compassion, kindness and tolerance as well as balancing one’s emotions; thus bringing inner peace and harmony. It helps balance emotions and heal emotional wounds and traumas, even grief, bringing peace and calm. Rose quartz removes fears, resentments and anger. It can also heal and release childhood traumas, neglect, and lack of love, in part by enhancing inner awareness. (Source)

Larimar – Larimar has a nourishing, watery energy and activates our self – healing forces. It can bring much that is gotten stuck in motion and is specifically useful in dissolving physical and mental blockades such as headaches, back pain, anxiety complaints, nightmares etc. Larimar is an excellent companion in times of changes and crises. Larimar creates a gentle and peaceful connection between heart and mind. It brings calmness, like gazing at a placid sea. We are better able to accept things as they are. Beyond that it helps us to look at events from a different perspective and maintain respect for another’s point of view. It is one of the most important healing stones for the 21st century. (Source)

Blue Lace Agate – Blue lace agate has a strong unparalleled relation to our physical body, and it works from there upwards, gradually affecting the more sublte manifestations of our being in rising sequence. It is excellent for dealing with your throat chakra issues, or communication issues in general. This stone can easily be linked to hope, unity, optimism, and positive thoughts. Indeed the feeling it provokes in you is nothing less than positive mood and optimistic outlook. Blue lace agate is able to work beneficially on the smooth circulation of pranic energy in your energy body. It can neutralize anger, and help deal with emotive traumas in your inner emotional world. Agates are excellent stones when there is a difficult battle ahead, either in your personal life or in your professional life. Whenever you have to be open and truthful with yourself, you should prefer agate over any other stone. (Source)

Garnet – Garnet is usually held in the hand or placed on top of the head when searching or meditating on past lives. Information that is beneficial and helpful will usually be released for the searcher. Garnet is a stone of purity and truth as well as a symbol of love and compassion. The information released in a search may be painful, but it will always be what the searcher needs. Garnet will help everyone’s security level and spiritual awareness. (Source)

It also encourages spiritual growth, clear vision, memory, faith, intelligence and communication, inspiration, joy, intuition, clairvoyance, sensuality, love, romance, beauty, harmony, tranquility, serenity, clarity, cleansing, justice, friendship and unity. It seems that more kinds of physical healing have been ascribed to the emerald than to almost any other stone. It allows access to the mystery we hold deepest in our hearts, thereby healing and activating our highest hearts desire. (Source)

Moonstone – Long considered to have inherent connections to the moon by all ancient cultures familiar with the stone, it was used during the waxing of the moon for love charms and during the waning of the moon to foretell the future. Vibrating with the feminine wisdom and Goddess energy of the waxing and full Moon, moonstone has a reflective, calming energy. It helps to strengthen intuition and psychic perception and brings balance and harmony with the All. It is said to have the power to grant wishes. Moonstone Honors the Goddess in all women. It aids in dieting, gardening, psychic awareness and meditation. It soothes stress and anxiety, and it enhances intuitive sensitivity via feelings. Promotes greater flexibility and flow with life. Helps all be more comfortable with our gentler feminine/yin receiving side. Helps one be more conscious of the fact that all things are part of a cycle of constant change. (Source)

Serpentine – Serpentine gets its name from the word ‘serpent’ because it resembles the skin of a snake. It has been used since ancient times to guard against disease and sorcery. Serpentine makes an exceptional meditation stone. It helps you to find inner peace, and encourages the ability to solve conflicts by peaceful means. (Source)

Most of these stones are ones I’ve been carrying with me in a charm bag or wearing in jewelry. Others sit on my altar and I’ve used them as meditation aids.

If you found yourself particularly drawn to the description of any of these stones and their properties, I encourage you to seek out the stone or stone and use it for yourself.

Two Meditations on the Rune Inguz

Runes are most commonly used in divination, but they are also helpful meditation tools. Today I’m going to share two recent meditations on the run Inguz. Inguz as a symbol stands for fertility, DNA, reincarnation, lunar & earthly magic, germination, growth, spiritual aspiration and the manipulation of the natural environment. So I was not surprised that both meditations focused on my body, my pregnancy and my energy field.

For runes, the color of activation is always red, so each meditation began with steady breathing, then I imagined the lines of the rune glowing red, as if with fire. The center of the rune opened like a portal of light.

In the first meditation, I went through the Inguz portal and saw a red mist and nothing else at first. I heard a heartbeat that I mistook for my own at first, until I realized that I was inside my own womb where a child currently grows inside me, and that the heartbeat belong to the child. I saw my baby sleeping peacefully in the womb.  I energetically cradled it and gave thanks for the vision of my child as healthy and safe.

That was the first meditation, which was rather short.

The next one, started the same way, but when I went through the portal this time, I entered the white bright star which I understood as my own spirit energy. I merged with the light, breathing deeply. I saw it soak into my human body where it touched all parts of me, moving from large organs to the tiny twisting strands of my DNA. Each strand was purified by the light. I saw clouds of darkness leaving my DNA, releasing me from the darkness of past lives and ancestral problems I’d inherited. When I saw my DNA full of light, my inner sight moved me to the child within and its DNA strands, embedding them with light and love through my intention. I saw the unborn child’s body full of light, blessing us both with its brightness. I came back to myself with my hand resting on my baby bump, grateful for the purification of the body that comes through Spirit and grateful for the connection I have with my unborn child.

Understanding Life’s Challenges

Image via JonathanParker.org

I’m on Ross Bishop‘s email list, and today this was just what I needed to read. I hope you will find it as inspiring and encouraging as I did. (All words are his, but the emphasis is mine).

UNDERSTANDING LIFE

by Ross Bishop

One of the difficulties people have doing spiritual work is that even after all that has been shared with us, we have a poor understanding of what life is about. Put in the simplest terms, your spiritual development is not completed and you came to earth to move the process forward. Earth was created as a learning place for your growth and development.

Today when challenged, you are not able to hold the God Space. Instead you move into fear, feelings of inadequacy and self doubt. When things go wrong you blame yourself, others, get angry at God or the world for your troubles.

Although we rarely see life this way, our dilemmas are really opportunities for learning. The key is to shift our perspective from being a victim to becoming a student of life. A big part of the problem is that the learning system, although extremely effective, is painful and not entirely straightforward. The saving grace is that our conflicts, although unpleasant, can do no permanent damage.

Having free will does complicate matters. Because of free will, any changes you make must come from within, they cannot be given or taught. They must be experienced and accepted as your own personal truth. The most powerful way to help someone who has free will find the truth is to first convince them of its opposite. This may seem convoluted, but over time, faced with the growing conflict between false belief and the truth, there is nowhere else for a person to turn but to the truth. Because the choice is individual, when you make that shift, you will hold the truth more deeply than is possible by any other means. Learning in this way respects your free will and insures that your newfound truth will be unshakable.

Before you came to earth you were with The Creator. The limitations in your consciousness were not an issue, they could not create any difficulties there. However the moment you separated from The Creator to come here, the limitations of your consciousness were exposed. In addition, in order for the learning process on earth to work, you had to temporarily forget your connection to The Creator. Otherwise, nothing that happened here would have caused conflict for you to learn from.

Because of your inner uncertainty and vulnerability, when you left “heaven” you felt as though you had been cast out into the cold, uncaring vastness of The Universe. You concluded that you had been abandoned, unwanted, unworthy and unloved. None of that could be true, they were completely impossible, but your Misunderstanding was profound and deep. This was intended. Your feelings of unworthiness and unlovability would serve as the pivots around which your earthly learning experiences would evolve. They would form the foundation for the learning you needed.

Your limited consciousness was unable to grasp the greater truth of who you really were, and so you chose to believe you were flawed. And you have been working to resolve that Misunderstanding ever since. The beliefs that developed out of the separation have shaped and twisted every experience you have ever had. Responding to the energy of the Misunderstanding, The Universe creates situations to help you work through your false beliefs in a manageable context.

For example, we were all hurt in childhood. That is not accidental. It is a setup designed into the life process to trigger your inner uncertainties and create false beliefs. Remember that life on earth has been set up to convince you that you were unworthy, unlovable and even possibly damaged so that over time, you would reject those beliefs and embrace who and what you really are. The fact that this happens for every child on the planet should convince you that this is not some random, happenstancial occurrence. It is a planned and intended, integral part of your learning process. Any conflict between a belief and the truth must eventually be resolved for the truth. You can divert things for a while by living in your ego, but there is always a price for that.

Your childhood experiences would propel you into a lifetime of difficult experiences that would ultimately lead to an expanded consciousness. It is not a pleasant or enjoyable process, but healing your childhood wounds, learning to move beyond the ego and your beliefs and live in the truth, will help resolve your inner wounding and bring you closer to The God Space. From the human perspective, the learning process can seem uncaring and callous, but we need to remember that this is God’s agenda, not ours. God loves you, but will not be dissuaded from His plan if your ego gets dinged. Actually, the pain that comes from your ego being dented is a very important part of the learning process.

Most people get caught up in the struggle and fail or refuse to realize that while they are getting the stuffing kicked out of them, there is a far more significant process taking place. We feel hurt, remain victims, and rarely raise our heads high enough to get above the fray and witness the learning being asked of us. The change, by the way, is always about moving to greater compassion and the stuffing you lose isn’t real anyway. It is something we are better off without. It is when we paint ourselves into a corner and are faced with the either/or of “surrender or die” that most of us challenge and eventually surrender, our false and limiting beliefs.

Finding ways to trust in God’s guidance and make the “leap” to another way of believing, leaving your wounds and scars behind, requires finding the faith that if you leap, you won’t simply crash and burn or be left out in the cold. That is why, even though most of our connection to The Creator has been camouflaged, there always remains a chord of light to build faith on. We need to find something to trust, either a belief system or a teacher we can have confidence in to help us make the leap.

Your Misunderstandings profoundly affect everything you do.
