Never wish to change any of it.

When you face your life review, you will see it was all there to open your heart. To Love. To you.

The experience, is there for a reason, to open to love. NOW.

Sometimes it feels like LOVE is painful. It is opening more, your heart that feels painful.

Love requires everything.

Everything of YOU.

Giving ALL of you is the beauty of IT.

Never regret the pain.

The sadness.

The Loss.

It is part of love and opening more to love.

We only have today. Tomorrow may not come.

Give all that you Are. Even if one day it seems to end….Eternally it never ends. Love is the only thing that is eternal. You ARE Love and you are Becoming YOU. Fully. It requires ALL that YOU are.

Love what is now with all of your being. All of your heart as best you can. Transcend the belief that pain makes it not worthy to appreciate your experience.

It is all beauty and opportunity for love.

You will know this one day if you do not now.

Tomorrow may never come.

TODAY NOW is all there is.

Love FEELING deeply, whether love, sadness, pain. ecstasy or bliss.

Because you are feeling. You are experiencing LIFE.

The Life and experiences you are destined to have.

Feeling tears of pain. No tears are lost.

Acknowledging the pain, the heart that feels torn apart.

You are held in the loving arms of Divinity. As this birthing you experience through every painful experience. That opens your heart.

Surrender is a sacred process of BECOMING.

Becoming LOVE.

Love that Loves and lets go.

IS the Heart that is growing.

That is learning how Love truly is, trusting, Loving no matter what.

REALIZING the moment can never be kept the same.

NORMA LEHMEIER HARTIE: “How To Remove Negative Energy From Your Home”

smudging-2-2

The main reason to clear a space — your home, your car or your office — is to remove negative energies.  Negative energies occur for a number of reasons.  They include:

Metaphysical

  • Negative thoughts from current or previous owners or occupants
  • Disturbed emotional energy of current or previous owners or occupants
  • Disturbed environmental energy
  • Dimensional beings

Earth Energies

  • Faulting pressure (Faults are breaks in the Earth’s crust where chunks of land on each side move in different directions.  Land suddenly shifting along fault lines is the primary cause of earthquakes.)
  • Negative magnetic fields
  • Disturbances from naturally occurring underground water

Technology

  • Electrical appliances such as cell phones, computers, microwave ovens and hair dryers

Objects

  • Antiques
  • Used or new furniture
  • Second-hand jewelry
  • Works of art
  • Crafts
  • Anything made by hand, including such possessions as rugs

Every time you clean your home you are removing negative energy.  Cleaning your home or workspace will make it lighter and more positive.  This is a result of organizing, of ridding yourself of things you no longer need and removing toxic products from your environment.  Just opening windows brings in fresh, positive energy.

Other space clearing techniques include dowsing; smudging with herbs or incense; clearing with bells, cymbals and singing bowls; and clearing with chanting.

How to Clear Your Home of Negative Energy

No matter what method or methods you chose to clear negative or disturbed energies, always clear mindfully and without distractions. Turn off the stereo and television—you need to clear in a quiet atmosphere. Your intent is to clear disturbed or negative energies. When clearing, visualize these energies disappearing. The reason that you should be specific is that you want the good energy left undisturbed. If you chose to smudge with herbs, for example, speak aloud or silently words to convey that you are removing negative energy.

Clearing is done in a meditative-type state — slowly and with focus — so the words are much like a mantra.  Keep them simple.  For example, if I am smudging, I will think “negativity be gone!” or “if there is negative energy present, please leave.”  At the same time, I visualize the space vibrant with only positive energy.

Every home and workspace should be cleared periodically.  It is impossible to say exactly how often, as it depends on your situation.  You will develop a feel for how often you need to clear negative energies.  The following is a guide for good times to clear negative energies.

When and What to Clear of Negative Energy

  • When you move into a new residence, clean and clear the space meticulously.  You are clearing any possible negative or disturbed emotions of the previous occupants and other negative or disturbed energies.  Clear your new office for the same reason.
  • Following an illness of a member of a household the negative energy should be cleared.
  • All objects that are antiques, previously used (particularly jewelry), works of art, crafts and anything made by hand should be individually cleared of negative energy.  When feasible, wash items as well.  If you buy an antique rocking chair, for example, that chair may have been sat on for years by the same person.  This is great if it was a happy person — not so great if it was a miserable person.  The energy of the rocking chair’s previous owner is in that chair.

On the subject of buying something that was previous used, I highly recommend that you do not purchase a second-hand bed.  So much time is spent in bed — therefore, too much energy of the previous owner(s) is in a bed.  Do you really want to gamble on who spent time in your bed?  If you already have a used bed that you love, or insist on buying a used bed, learn how to dowse or hire someone to dowse it for you.

Jewelry, Crystals and Gemstones

Second-hand jewelry should be cleared, as jewelry picks up the energy of the wearer.  You may wish to clear all your jewelry, crystals and gemstones, especially if you have been feeling poorly.  Be especially mindful of clearing only negative energy when working on an inherited piece from a loved one.

There are a number of methods for clearing jewelry, gemstones and crystals:

  1. To clear gemstones and crystals, sea salt works well.  Salt can be dissolved or used dry.  For salt water, mix a tablespoon of sea salt with a cup of cold water in a glass or ceramic container.  Do not use plastic or metal containers.  Place the stones in the solution for several hours or overnight.  With dry salt, bury pieces in a glass or ceramic container and leave for several hours or overnight.  When clearing gemstone necklaces, use dry salt, as the water solution will deteriorate the cord that the beads were strung on.  Discard salt.
  2. Wash in the ocean.
  3. Clear in sunlight — allow to sit in the sun for a day.
  4. Clear in moonlight.  Bury in the earth overnight with a full moon.
  5. Smudge all jewelry, gemstones and crystals.
  6. You can clear jewelry of negative energy with a pendulum.

 

Clear negative energies if you or other members of your household are feeling poorly for any unexplained reason.  This can include any mental, physical or emotional upset.  This is most notable if a change occurs following a move into a new home or office.

ADEANA M. SLATER” Forgiveness IS Freedom”

forgiveness-is-freedom

Most of our lessons and soul growth comes from the most unfavorable situations or circumstances.  It is often people or events that enter our life and seem to present challenges in which we are forced to deal with head on.  If pain or upset is triggered in us as a reaction, it can lead to bitterness and a feeling of anger.  As we put up these blocks to our heart, we close ourself off to experiencing love.  The more these energetic blocks stack up, the less we are able to give and receive love from others.  Our heart space begins to close more and more as life goes on.

Remember to see the positive in all things. Rather than choosing to wallow in self pity and victimization, open up your soul awareness and see the higher perspective.  Often times whatever we were challenged with also offered us the most significant soul growth and lessons.  We do not often learn by the best of situations, but by what we deem as the worst.  The reason for that is we are unable to truly appreciate what is good, until we have experienced the opposite in comparison.  It is by this important lesson that we choose to act or react differently towards others, so that we do not inflict the same “trauma” as was done to us.  In order to learn how we want to behave, we must first learn what’s unfavorable or unacceptable to us.

As we all begin to release the ego’s dominant grip on our human psyche, we will all begin to energetically trigger one another into a cleansing and healing dynamic.  This involves shedding all suppressed emotions, and unhealed parts of ourself.  What no longer resonates with our soul during our personal evolution, will come to the surface for us to purge and release.  Be patient and forgiving with yourself as well as with others during this difficult and painful process.

It is by the power of forgiveness that you can remove these shackles from holding you back as you continue to move forward.  The more you are able to let go of the pain and agony you choose to carry with you, the more you become lighter and lighter as a soul.

Your projected heavy heart will begin to ease and open up slowly, the more you can release all of these impediments that are keeping you from experiencing the love you deserve. ☺️

LISA RENEE (Energetic Synthesis): “Psycho-Emotional Healing”

6starlace

“Psycho-emotional trauma can result from many common occurrences that are sudden and shocking to a person, who as a result of this occurrence, undergo a life alteration that dismantles the relationships and social structures that person relied upon to reinforce their sense of identity.  When we lose reinforcements to our sense of identity, or we lose reinforcement to our sense of belonging to a group or belief system, our ego-personality feels threatened and even depressed.  When we lose reinforcement to our ego-personality, we undergo stages of dismantling the personality, thus, we may feel a range of potential layers of emotional trauma surfacing.  Traumatizing events can take a serious toll on people even if there was not any kind of physical injury, there can be a psychological and emotional injury that impacts the pain body.  It is very common for people to have psychological or emotional injury stemming from early childhood that was never addressed.  When the ego begins to unravel, this previous pain that was covered up by the ego starts to be more deeply felt and experienced.  Events in the environment may trigger this deeply emotional pain from in the past, or that was buried in the subconscious mind, and people feel that pain heightened by external events that can trigger these old wounds.” 

~Lisa Renee

 

It is only possible to engage with psycho-emotional healing once we have achieved greater levels of self-awareness, which is the fruit of dedicated self-inquiry. The process of becoming aware of our emotional triggers and sourcing the real cause of emotional pain is made through self-observation and increased self-awareness. Through dedicated observation of the self and gradually discerning between these functioning aspects of the mind, one can attain the direct experience of the consciousness they are. The still point of which this consciousness connects into the parts of our mind is that which forms all of our thoughts, emotions, and experiences that direct us through life. Through observation and self-inquiry, we become aware of the contents of our psychological and emotional patterns of behavior.

Psycho-emotional is to describe any kind of psychological interaction one may have with their inner feelings or expressed emotions. Most people will experience a quality of feeling emotions that are first generated from the quality of their thoughts. The context and value of those thoughts are held in the person’s belief system and dictate the quality of emotion and behavior that is expressed. So it is important to be aware of what kind of emotions we feel when we are thinking a certain thought or connecting to a certain event or person. After we are able to witness the psychological interplay with our emotional relationship to any kind of internal or external stimulus, then we begin to see the connections that are made between our thoughts and feelings. This allows us to gain the next stage of self-awareness which is to then source the thought and decide what value or context we want to assign to it. This is what underlies our belief systems and is responsible for our inner motivation that shapes our outer behavior and actions.

When we develop and improve our psycho-emotional awareness through observation, we are capable of making changes to our mental state and unconscious mind at the same time we are observing it. Changes to our mental state and inner thoughts impact our outward behavior and our physical actions. This shifts how we respond to our environment and how we interact within every relationship and social setting.

Now imagine that you are feeling a range of emotions with no sense of their origin, and that you are not sure what thoughts these emotional sensations are actually sourcing from. Spontaneously, there are feeling-emotions arising in your body and they may overcome your awareness, so that you pay close attention to them. Sometimes, this can feel like a wave of emotion that came out of nowhere and filled your body with a certain sensation. These are days when we may wake up from bed feeling sad or heavy or feeling light and happy with no direct reason. When we are more developed with emotional sensing, we can easily identify our feelings in the moment, we can sense the energy behind words and we can sense the feeling emotions of others. Such as sensing negative emotions in ourselves and other people with a feeling of sharpness, heavy-density, drudgery, broken glass, slime, or weaponry. Or sensing positive emotions in ourselves and others may feel buoyant, easy, relaxed, flowing, expansive and harmonious. These emotional animations can be sensed in the body from the instinctual mind also known as the Pain Body, or we can experience higher emotions that may be sensed from within the heart center.

Many times, we are sensing the collective consciousness emotional body of the human race or we may be sensing the larger movements and transitions that are occurring to the planetary body during the ascension cycle. Further still, sometimes we may be receiving mind control transmissions that are broadcast into the ELF airwaves, from many different technological devices and the mainstream media. The body will automatically react to these electromagnetic currents of neurological mind control or sense the changes occurring to the magnetic movement of the earth body, even when there is no conscious thought-form present. Many people on the earth at this time have trouble expressing what they are actually feeling inside their body. Try to give words to what you are feeling and sensing even if it does not make sense to your logical mind, bring the feeling into a symbol you can work with to identify what it is. Once we are able to develop deeper awareness of what kind of sensation we are feeling inside our body, and ask to track where these thoughts and feelings are actually sourcing from, they become much easier to identify.  Once they are identified, we can choose to remove and repair them, clear them from impacting our body and consciousness negatively. We are unable to clear collective consciousness negativity or planetary mind control transmissions, until we can discern what it is and can assign a quality of feeling or identify the energy vibration that our body is picking up. Currently, there is a lot of emotional trauma surfacing in the collective consciousness body of humanity and the earth, and many people are picking up that trauma and feeling it personally.

Psycho-emotional trauma can result from many common occurrences that are sudden and shocking to a person, who as a result of this occurrence, undergo a life alteration that dismantles the relationships and social structures that person relied upon to reinforce their sense of identity. When we lose reinforcements to our sense of identity, or we lose reinforcement to our sense of belonging to a group or belief system, our ego-personality feels threatened and even depressed. When we lose reinforcement to our ego-personality, we undergo stages of dismantling the personality, thus, we may feel a range of potential layers of emotional trauma surfacing. Traumatizing events can take a serious toll on people even if there was not any kind of physical injury, there can be a psychological and emotional injury that impacts the pain body. It is very common for people to have psychological or emotional injury stemming from early childhood that was never addressed. When the ego begins to unravel, this previous pain that was covered up by the ego starts to be more deeply felt and experienced. Events in the environment may trigger this deeply emotional pain from in the past, or that was buried in the subconscious mind, and people feel that pain heightened by external events that can trigger these old wounds.

Psycho-emotional trauma has common elements that impact people.

  • The occurrence or event was totally unexpected accompanied with sudden or shocking realizations.
  • The person was not prepared for what happened, nor prepared to deal with the result or the aftermath of trauma crisis.
  • The person felt powerless and there was nothing that person could do to prevent the event from happening.

It is not the occurrence or event that necessarily generates the psychological-emotional trauma, it is the person’s unique experience of the event that determines if it was traumatic or not. Each person may process the event in a unique way that is specific to them, even when its connected to a collective trauma or larger planetary event.  Traumatizing events can take a serious emotional toll on those involved, even if the event did not cause physical damage. Traumatic events can change the functioning and structure of the brain, which impair the brain’s bio-neurological processing. Many common problems that impact the brain chemistry and function is directly related to unresolved and unhealed psychological-emotional trauma that has produced post-traumatic stress conditions in that person. Early life trauma, childhood trauma creates the life conditions for setting up vulnerability for that person to continue to experience future traumatic responses.

What are the possible effects of emotional trauma?

Even when unrecognized, emotional trauma can create lasting difficulties in an individual’s life. One way to determine whether an emotional or psychological trauma has occurred, perhaps even early in life before language or conscious awareness were in place, is to look at the kinds of recurring problems one might be experiencing. These can serve as clues to an earlier situation that caused a dysregulation in the structure or function of the brain. We can observe many of these symptoms occurring to people around us, that are unaware that the planet is undergoing a shift in consciousness which requires the dismantling of the ego-personality programs that are running reptilian hive mind or fear and trauma programming.

Common personal and behavioral effects of emotional trauma:

• substance abuse

• compulsive behavior patterns

• self-destructive and impulsive behavior

• uncontrollable reactive thoughts

• inability to make healthy professional or lifestyle choices

• dissociative symptoms (“splitting off” parts of the self)

• feelings of ineffectiveness, shame, despair, hopelessness

• feeling permanently damaged

• a loss of previously sustained beliefs

Common effects of emotional trauma on interpersonal relationships:

• inability to maintain close relationships or choose appropriate friends and mates

• sexual problems

• hostility

• arguments with family members, employers or co-workers

• social withdrawal

• feeling constantly threatened

How is emotional trauma treated?

To overcome emotional triggering and the replaying of trauma patterns, it is necessary to discharge, disable, and eliminate negative internal thoughtforms and prevent new ones from forming. There are ways of healing emotional wounds and getting rid of self-defeating subconscious mind programming that generate negative internal thoughtforms. While methods vary in complexity and efficiency, the basic idea comes down to finding an internal thought form, and discharging the emotional content  by consciously replaying the associated false perceptions and emotions, and realizing that the perceptions were false, and replacing them with a new realization that is closer to the truth. Find the false perception or fear, discharge the narrative and emotion associated, and replace with a positive and loving thought form and emotion. Preventing negative internal thoughtforms from accumulating is a matter of changing and transforming any negative emotional energy that is being accumulated, as you observe the process as it happens through self-awareness.

Prayer and meditation connect us to higher intelligence and have positive impacts on calming our mind and clearing negative emotions. Prayer focuses on positive emotions like love, gratitude and compassion, which allow goodness in our lives and the lives of those we pray for. Meditation reduces anxiety, stress, and depression, which helps us to find and connect to peaceful states. Being mindful improves our mental flexibility, brain elasticity and keeps neurons active, while helping to keep the brain activity more balanced. Spiritually centering ourselves on peace, prayer and contemplation of God  and the Universe, helps us maintain our trust in life, faith, and relaxes every part of the body, mind and spirit.

What is most important now is to relax the body and mind through daily meditation, and to clear negative ego, emotional pain, and stay calm and neutral. Pure alchemy exists within the energetic balance of the core spiritual essence within the natural state of the divine being. Ask God or your highest expression in God to help heal emotional trauma in your pain body and to show you the best way to heal emotional trauma. To connect with inner spiritual alchemy, one must extract the artificial machinery influences and intentionally remove the Houses of Ego (reptilian or predator mind) that may have been programmed within the self. As we are opening into states of accessing higher consciousness, consider to conceive of Unity consciousness through meditation by expansion of space and intending to connect within infinity in time.

In meditation we may focus upon:

•Perpetual presence in all Time and Space. Timeless.

•Perpetual Presence in dreaming and waking states combining into Oneness.

•In accessing memory of perpetual presence, or timelessness, all dread vanishes.

•Attempt to reach neutrality in mind towards all existing things. (Neutrality is neither love, hate nor indifference).

•Hold mentally the capacity of sameness, equilibrium and constant calm and peace.

•This discipline attracts and increases the virtues of The Spirits of Christ. This acquires the virtue of Benevolence towards all things.

•Seek improvement in one’s humanity and spiritual expression without praise or blame, or needing emotional dramas of the Victim-Victimizer archetypes.

Additionally, there are many traditional approaches to treating psychological-emotional trauma that include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) . CBT is intentionally changing one’s thoughts and actions and the systematic desensitization to reduce reactivity to a traumatic stressor. People learn to respond to stressors, rather than react impulsively to previous patterns of emotional triggers.

Recent developments in the treatment of emotional trauma include effective forms of psychotherapy and somatic (body) therapies that were developed with new brain science information in mind. Although often intensely interpersonal, these therapies are also psychological and neurological in their focus and application and may be helpful for certain groups of people. This group of therapies relies on innate instinctual resources, rather than medications, to bring about healing. They differ in some ways, but the one thing they have in common is combining talk therapy while simultaneously having a focus on the body. As with any therapy, but especially due to the intensity of the emotions involved, it is important to find a therapist with whom one feels trust, rapport and a strong bond. They include:

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy (TFT). It is best known through Gary Craig’s EFT Handbook, published in the late 1990s, and related books and workshops by a variety of teachers. EFT and similar techniques are often discussed under the umbrella term “energy psychology”.

Eye Movement Desensitization/Reprocessing (EMDR) was developed by psychologist, Francine Shapiro, after she noticed her own stress reactions diminishing when her eyes swept back and forth as she walked through a park. It is conducted by licensed mental health professionals who have taken specific training in this complex approach. It combines elements of a range of therapeutic approaches with eye movements or other forms of rhythmical stimulation, such as hand taps or sounds. Theories as to why EMDR is effective are still evolving. Some speculate that the rapid unique therapeutic element of EMDR, the eye movements or other rhythmical stimulation may help the brain access and process traumatic material.

Somatic Psychotherapies – The term somatic, coined by Tomas Hanna, means mind/body or more precisely brain/body. The idea is that to change the body, we have to engage the brain and change the brain, not only how we think and feel, but also the neurological connections themselves. The body, its sensations, and direct sensory experience are referenced throughout the therapeutic process. Somatic therapies include:

Somatic Experiencing: developed by Peter Levine, this approach evolved in part from observations of how animals literally “shake off” traumatic experiences, allowing the body to process stress chemicals completely until they return to normal levels. The SE therapist may be a licensed professional or unlicensed but with some mental health training. All SE therapists complete an extensive training program, in which they learn to observe the body, facial expressions and gestures carefully and to help the person “thaw” a response that was “frozen” in a traumatic situation (illustration: the person might be observed to make short gestures that almost appear to be a pushing motion, but that stop abruptly, the therapist might have the person complete the gesture in full, and notice how the body’s tension level changes).

Hakomi Method: originated by Ron Kurtz, this system is based on five therapeutic principles – Mindfulness, Organicity, Non-Violence, the Mind-Body Connection, and Unity. It is a body-centered approach for which, in part, the therapist helps the client experiment with small changes in gesture or other movements, to see what differences occur in the processing of emotionally charged content (illustration: the person might be observed to always make a certain gesture or have a certain posture when talking about the attacker – the therapist might suggest the gesture or posture be changed to a different one as an experiment, and then to notice the changes in feelings or thoughts).

This is the time to take an active role in healing ourselves, healing our lives. When we can identify our emotional pain and are willing to take steps to heal our emotions, we empower ourselves in taking steps that lead us to spiritual freedom. May love, peace and spiritual strength bless you.

GOSTICA: “11 Grounding Techniques For Empaths To Avoid Apathy And Depression”

grounding-techniques

Empaths, let’s all agree on one thing — I really think that it is a challenge for Empaths to stay grounded as they’re constantly being bombarded with a real mix of negative, external emotions.  Even if they stay home and don’t venture out of their personal sanctuaries, their empathic antennas are picking up so much of the pain from the outside world.

Because of this, empaths can easily become consumed with depression, listlessness and apathy and lose sight of what our roles here are to do.  All of the following techniques have been tried and tested by yours truly and I can attest to the benefits of them, although I have to say on the darker days, especially when there is a lot of solar activity, even these techniques don’t always clear the emotional debris.

GROUNDING TECHNIQUES FOR EMPATHS TO AVOID APATHY AND DEPRESSION:

1.) Change your thoughts

Yes, you should change your thoughts.  Many of us help create our life situations with the thoughts we keep, especially dark, repetitive ones.  From the second a negative thought pops into our head we only have a matter of moments before its settles in and changes our mindset from positive to negative, once this happens, one bad thought after another keeps rolling in.

The best way to avoid it is not to indulge in them in the first place.  When a dark thought pounces, change it, immediately, to a good one.  Sounds simple, it’s not.  It’s difficult, but we do have a choice about what we think (and feel).  We can allow our thoughts to rule us or we can rule our thoughts… Change your thoughts change your life!

2.) Exercise and play

In the western world many of us turn to exercise for the benefits of weight loss and a toned body.  However, exercise offers so much more: it can release pent-up emotions, remove impurities through sweat, enhances and uplifts moods, energizes and allows us to have fun.  Instead of referring to it as workout-time, we should call it playtime.

When it comes to playtime do what you love.  Some of you maybe stuck in a boring exercise routine that you do out of necessity rather than play.  If this is the case, find something you love.  What did you love to do as a child?  Being out on your bike?  Skipping?  Hula-Hooping?  Bouncing up and down on a trampoline?  Horse-riding?  All excellent forms of play (exercise).  If you detested running and were no good at it, chances are it will probably be the same now.  If you loved gymnastics then yoga will definitely be a great one for you to try.

If you don’t like rules, routines or set times then go freestyle.  Make the rules yourself.  Get the music music cranked up and dance like nobody’s watching (which it’s probably best if no one is whilst throwing your shapes out).  Dance, stretch and jump your cares away and get a sweat on.  All you need is 10 minutes a day, but I guarantee if you’re doing something you love those 10 minutes will easily turn into 20, 30 or 40… Who needs a gym or a class?

3.) Meditation

This is a must if you have a busy head with endless mind-chatter and fearful thoughts.  It will help you deal with stressful situations and give you clearer insight.  There are many forms of meditation out there; it’s just a case of finding what suits you.  If you’ve never attempted it here’s one to try:

Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight, close your eyes and, breathing through your nose, focus on your breath. Inhale for 3 seconds and exhale for 3 seconds.  On the inhale feel your tummy expand and on the exhale feel it deflate (Note: when you first try this it is common to get dizzy or feel anxious).  You will find, at first, your mind turns into a monkey and starts jumping all over the place, from one thought to the next, but just keep coming back to your breath.  Start with a few minutes and build it up to whatever suits you.

4.) Creativity

In a world of rules and routine, we seldom get time to be creative but this is one of the easiest ways to revel in the feel-good-factor.  When we create, from our passions or interests, it has an uplifting effect on our psyche and because we’re engaging in something we love it keeps our minds away from dark thoughts and feelings.

Many will say that they’re not creative because they don’t see themselves as artistic.  But you don’t have to be a master crafter or award-winning composer to indulge in creative outlets.  Simply making a dance routine, writing a story or poem, arranging flowers or devising a menu, are forms of creativity.  We all have a way to be creative, it maybe that you’ve just not discovered yours yet.

5.) Chakra balancing

The 3 best ways to self-balance our chakras is through: meditation, yoga or using crystals:

Yoga: The Five Tibetan rites is one form of yoga specifically designed to balance the chakras as well as short (10 to 20 minutes max), kick-ass workout for body and mind.

Meditation: Though doing either a guided, chakra meditation or just focusing positively on each one in turn will help keep them balanced.  You can get guided meditation CD’s at Amazon.com.  Check also: How To Balance Your 7 Chakras System

Crystals: The healing power of crystals has long been known in many cultures, from Atlantis to ancient Egypt.  Many ancients had crystal chambers that would be used to heal many an ailment.  Check: How To Heal Your Chakras With Crystals

6.) Laughter

As grown-ups we spend too much time being solemn and serious, and too little time having fun (especially in the current times).  Do you remember the last time you had a proper belly laugh?

 

“You don’t stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing!”

 

We hear children laugh all the time.  They don’t know how to take life seriously, it’s all about play and fun.  We should all strive to stay childlike. To see the world in wonder and above all have fun and laugh.  Anything that makes us laugh will make our spirits soar. It really is a therapy.

7.) Nature

Being outdoors in nature will have a healing and uplifting effect on all. If you work in a city with no access to parkland make sure you get out at weekends away from cars and air pollution.

8.) Essential Oils

As with crystals the healing power of essential oils has been known through the ages. It is through the olfactory senses that much benefit is derived from the oils. The best all round essential oil is Lavender because, unlike all other oils, it can be used without a carrier-oil and applied directly to the skin or put straight into your bath water (other oils can irritate the skin if used neat).  Amongst its many benefits, it is an antidepressant antiseptic, antifungal, it can even be used as a sleep aid.

9.) Love

The most important self-healing tool we have is love… it makes the world go round.  Doing what you love will uplift you more than anything else.  The Beatles were onto something when they sang, “All you need is love!”  Unfortunately, we are humans, having a human experience, in a human body and love is one of the last emotions we tend to bathe ourselves in.

10.) Truth

Truth is an all encompassing liberator and once you become an advocate your eyes will be opened to another world.

11.) Water

The body is made up of 75% water (some body tissue even contains 95%), so it will come as no surprise that this is way up there on the self-healing scale.  any of us are unaware of just how dehydrated we are.  An insufficient supply of water creates problems with the functioning of our body, affects our well-being, appearance and accelerates the aging process.  The heavier we are the more water we need.  If you type, ‘the healing powers of water,’ into any search engine you will get hundreds of pages worth of information on the subject, but by far the best I have so far come across is the site of Dr. F. Batmanghelidj M.D. who is a pioneer in the discoveries of the healing power of water.

Water washes more than just dirt away; it has the power to cleanse our energetic body and clear negative energies.  If you’re skeptical, try this when you come home from a hard day at work:  Instead of reaching for the wine, jump straight in the shower and see what a lifting effect it has on you.  Combine it with the healing power of salt and you’re onto a winner.

SADHGURU: “Kundalini: Awakening to the Treasure Within”

sadhguru.jpg

“The word kundalini generally refers to that dimension of energy, which is yet to realize its potential.  There is a huge volume of energy within you which is yet to find its potential.  It is just there waiting, because what you call as a human being is still in the making.”

~Sadhguru

 

Yogi and mystic, Sadhguru, looks at the enormous potential that Kundalini carries. He speaks of the importance of becoming aware of the Kundalini, awakening to a hidden treasure within.

The word “kundalini” generally refers to that dimension of energy that is yet to realize its potential.  There is a huge volume of energy within you that is yet to find its potential.  It is just there waiting, because what you call a human being is still in the making.  You are not yet a human being, you are a “human becoming.”  You are not an absolute entity of being human.  There is constant scope to make yourself into a better human being.

Once you become human, there is no more unconscious evolution.  If you are unconscious, the same endless cycle of the same nonsense will go on and on.  Evolution will come to you only if you seek it consciously.

If you become conscious, evolution – or any change – cannot happen without the necessary energy.  So, the process of evolution allowed a huge volume of energy untapped, that if you become conscious, you could use this to make something fantastic out of it.  It is a treasure on which you are sitting.  But if you are looking in the wrong direction, you will never know that there is a treasure.

Kundalini: Sitting on a Jackpot

It happened once.  There was a beggar who lived in terrible poverty.  He just sat under a tree and begged.  People threw a few coins, and he just lived on.  One day he died and his body was just lying there.  He had no friends or relatives, and nobody wanted to carry him somewhere and bury him.  So they decided to just bury him right there under the tree.  As people began digging, they hit upon a huge treasure.  Just a few feet beneath him there had been a huge treasure, a huge pot full of gold, and the fool was sitting right there all his life, begging.  If only he had dug down, he would have been a very rich man.  But he sat there all the time being a beggar.

This is the way of the Kundalini.  It is sitting right there.  Everyone is sitting on a jackpot, but they are all looking in other directions.  They are not looking where the treasure is.  So they never realize something like this is there.  Kundalini is that treasure within you which has been left unused, untapped.  You could use that energy to transform this into a completely different dimension altogether; a dimension that you cannot imagine.

Kundalini: Plug into the Ultimate Source

Let me take you from your own experience of life because the stories about Kundalini are many.  In your house, there is a plug-point in the wall.  This plug-point does not actually produce any power.  There is a huge power station elsewhere that is producing power, but it cannot give you that power directly.  It is the plug-point that gives you access.  Though most people have not even thought about the power station and have no concept of what it is, they know that if they plug an appliance into the plug-point, the appliance will run.

Similarly, there is a “plug-point” within the human body.  It is not a 3-pin point, it is a 5-pin point.  You might have heard of the seven chakras.  The muladhara is like a 5-plug point.  That is why it is known as muladhara.  Muladhara means “fundamental” or “basic.”  Five of the remaining six chakras are the plug. What is the seventh chakra, known as the sahasrar?  It is like a light bulb.  If you plug it in, everything about you glows.  If you are properly plugged in, keeping the lights on 24 hours of the day is not an issue anymore.  You don’t have to turn off your power because you are worried the battery might run out.  You can just keep it on blatantly, recklessly, because you are plugged into the power source.

Even right now, you still have energy.  You can read what is written.  That means life energies are functioning, but in a very miniscule way.  Just a small part of it is functioning.  If the whole of it becomes available to you, if it is properly plugged in, there is no limit to what you can do out of it.  Even with the plug-point at home, once you are plugged in, you can make light happen, you can get the air-conditioning going, you can have the heater, you can have the television – anything you want. Just one power point.  You can do so many things.

Unfortunately, most human beings are not plugged in.  They are trying to generate their own power.  So they eat five times a day, but still they are tired most of the time.  It is a struggle to keep life going.  Energy is not just in terms of physical energy or activity, energy is in terms of life.  Existence is energy, isn’t it?  The basis of existence is energy.  If you know that basis, it is like knowing the foundations of life.  If you understand the ways of the energy, you know the whole mechanics of creation.  So if you are plugged in, you know what the power is, what it can do and what you can make out of it.  You are plugged into an endless source of power – that is what is Kundalini.

How Do You Plug Into Kundalini?

To plug in an appliance, if your hands are shaky, you will scratch the whole wall but you will not get the plug in.  In the same way, to put the 5-point plug into the plug-point is difficult for a lot of people because there is no steadiness in their body, their mind, their emotions or their energies.  Yoga is a means to get the necessary steadiness so that you can plug it in.  Once you plug it in – boundless energy!  You don’t have to go and learn about or understand the power station.  You plug it in and everything is fine.

Yoga is the science of getting the plug properly in so that there is an uninterrupted source of power.  Once you are connected to this uninterrupted source of power, naturally you will proceed towards the goal of what life is longing for.  You will not get lost with your fancy ideas, dreams, thoughts, emotions or entanglements of the world.

The Organic Atom

A human being is an “organic atom”, an individual unit of life.  For example, today, human beings are exploring atomic science.  An atom is not even visible to you, but if you smash it, something tremendous happens.  And if you are in the way, something terrible will happen.  No one ever realized that there could be so much energy packed into this tiny, little atom until they broke it.  Similarly, there is a tremendous amount of energy packed into a human being.  The Kundalini awakening or rising means you have found the technology of tapping into that energy.

However, if you tap into this dimension of energy, which is a phenomenal force, you must be on stable ground.  This is just like learning to operate nuclear energy.  Nowadays, everyone is learning a lot about atomic science because of the Japanese situation!  If you have forgotten the Russian experience, the Japanese are reminding you.  If you tap into this energy, you must tap into it with extreme caution.  If you are not in the right kind of situations, if you are in the way of a tsunami or an earthquake, you could be asking for trouble.  It is the same thing with the Kundalini.

Don’t Build a “Kundalini” Bomb!

With the kind of lives that most people live, where there are too many things – people, food or activity – that are not in absolute control, trying to activate the Kundalini because you read a book somewhere is like starting to build a nuclear reactor in your home because you read how to do it on the internet.  Apparently, until 2006, there was a detailed plan about how to build a nuclear bomb available on the internet!  We don’t know how many people have downloaded it.  The only fortune is they have no access to the material that is needed.  With Kundalini too, there are too many people who have read about how, with the Kundalini awakening, you can do all sorts of miraculous things.  But though they may intellectually know what to do, experientially they don’t.  And that’s a good thing because if they crack this energy open and they cannot contain it, it can destroy your whole system in no time.  Not just you, people around you could be hugely harmed too.  So is Kundalini a bad thing?  No.  It is a tremendous thing but anything which is tremendous has to be conducted in utmost care and caution.

How Else Do You Activate Kundalini?

So is there something else that one can do?  Every aspect of yoga in some way activates Kundalini.  In fact, everything that you do, if you go and jump for 10 minutes or play football, will activate your Kundalini to some extent.  In moments of absolute involvement in a game, people show a phenomenal sense of energy, which is not possible for them in normal situations.  This is because the Kundalini gets activated in intense activity.  But consciously trying to crack it open and use it is a different business.  That has to be done under absolute control and guidance.
