NEDA HASAN: “Top Twelve Ways to Raise Your Frequency To Attract A Vibrant, Enjoyable Life”

1562659-7

1. Sunlight

Not only is sunlight a way to make up for lost Vitamin D, but it is used to help stabilize the mood. You can shift stagnant, dull energy of the room by just opening your windows and letting light come through.

2. Sound

Solfeggio Frequencies and Binaural Beats, especially with the use of headphones, have been used to help diminish anger, depression, anxiety, and the list goes on. They are out there on YouTube for free. Check out 396 Hz on Audio Entrainment’s Channel. I would like to add that this is a perfect alternative for anyone who is lazy and reluctant to meditate. You can also listen to uplifting tunes that lift your spirit.

3. Herbs

Lavender Oil has a calming effective on the mind, especially before you go to bed. Besides the health benefits, basil is known to cure sadness and depression. Angelika root has been used centuries ago to get rid of evil spirits, but now it is used for upset stomachs, enhancing sex drive, and eliminating negativity. It should not be taken in heavy dosages, however. Burning Eucalyptus is known to help with colds. Green Oat is said to be good for addictions of any sort. Always check with your doctor if you want to consume any special herbs. Burning it however definitely will provide your home with a relaxed feel.

4. Enjoyable Exercise

Exercise, in and of itself, is known to release endorphins that help one feel better and release stress, but joy in exercise escalates the experience. If you enjoy dancing or playing tennis, do it! When you are having fun and burning calories at the same time, you are not only helping your emotional health, but physical health as well. Feeling like your workout is a burden will not help you to lift your frequency as like attracts like and a miserable journey cannot yield a happy outcome. The Key is to feel a sense of joy.

5. Water

Spending Time in Water will not only cleanse your body, but attract positive energy as Water is second closest to Source Energy, the first Being Light. This information is confirmed by Teal Swan, a legendary Spiritual Teacher. She advises to take a glass of water, set the time for a few minutes, and focus positive thoughts toward the water glass. Then drink it! Repeat this exercise for two weeks.

6. Appreciation

An attitude of gratitude is the key to abundance. Keep a Journal of positive things that cause you to feel joy just by thinking about it. It could be as menial as the violet curtains in your bedroom, or the bath filled with roses your children decorated for you when you came back from work. Positive Feelings are even more powerful than positive thoughts, so more joyful situations and thoughts will manifest. They trick is to just set aside time every day to dwell in a state of love.

6. Visualization

Visualization is the way to make it clear to the universe what it is you really want in this physical realm. When you hold up images you love and make them your phone wallpaper, or put up a vision board you see and have access to everyday, you help to materialize your goals. You cannot help but to have positive focus towards your dreams or whatever it is you are trying to attract. Visualization helps to develop clarity of what one wants in life. And you can keep adding to that board when your ideas expand. Imagining your dream lifestyle causes you to feel happy. Think of it this way: for a watchmaker to create a watch, he has to have an image of the finished result of the watch in his mind. It is the same way with your goals. Imagination is powerful. The journey becomes much easier once you know exactly just what your goals are.

7. De-clutter your Living Space

If you have a messy work desk, you can attract stressful situations. Cleaning up every once a week can remove stagnant, non-moving energy in a room to leave fresh vibrant energy flowing through. You will also feel more lively and in control of your life.

8. Eat More Fruits, Vegetables, and Nuts

Vegetables such as cucumbers not only add to clearer skin and help to reverse the aging process, but lift your energy. Nuts like almonds help with Vitamin D and help balance serotonin levels. Vegetables are not only great for vitality, but they resonate at a higher frequency that meat and processed food. They contain more life energy than dull foods like processed cheese and coffee. Never underestimate the power of Diet to transform your life.

9. Break Up with Stress

Stress weakens the immune system and can literally make one feel sick and be sick. Psychosomatic illnesses, such as excessive vomiting, are often caused by negative thoughts. Stress decreases energy and can lead to aging. When one is stress, they tend to make impulsive choices that make them feel good only physiologically and temporarily such as reaching for sugary snacks, which open the door to more disease and problems like cancer and diabetes. When one is in a relaxed state, they are less likely to manifest diseases in their life. And if diseases do arise, they are able to treat it quicker. Disease cannot survive in a body that is at ease. Your mental, emotional, and physical health are interrelated. Stress can attract more negative experiences besides illness, such as heavy workload, and unhappy relationships.

10. Watch Pure Forms of Entertainment

Most people are trained to believe the best forms of entertainment are action movies that involve, sex, drugs, and violence. Comedies like 21st Jump Street and Hangover have made blockbusters in today’s society. Movies like The Next Karate Kid and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, are seldom spoke of. Unfortunately, most people, especially in our youth, prefer a quick, easy way of forgetting reality that I call “entertainment for the sake of entertainment.” Gunshots, sexy scenes, and violence, seems to be the recipe for a great movie to many. But to me, true entertainment teaches a lesson about life, such as Forest Gump. They make people feel good, not just for a few hours of laughs and emotional excitement, but long when the movie is over. Furthermore, young kids who secretly do not like and are afraid of cheap forms of entertainment are peer-pressured and brainwashed into thinking such movies are healthy, just because it makes certain people laugh. A spiritually evolved person, however, does not feel amused by seeing a body part shot off.

11. Don’t Chase People who Aren’t Willing to Do Much for You

Many of us spend hours on celebrities or trying to get a person’s attention so they will like us. Often, are efforts go unnoticed and we feel taken for granted. You can be kinder to people than Mother Theresa ever was! If you do not respect yourself, people are not truly going to respect you. Nothing can make us truly happier then being around people who love us unconditionally, whose intentions are pure, who accept us as we are regardless of whether we are fat, skinny, short, tall, have a Ph.D, have no Ph.D, can drive, cannot drive, etc. When you stop chasing the wrong people (the people who do not care for your happiness and well-being) you give a chance for the right people to catch up. And it will not matter if they are blood-related or not, they will feel like family to you.

12. Meditate on your Thoughts

You do not have to sit-crossed legged for hours and repeat a mantra to the point of mental exhaustion to meditate. You can let go, sit back, even open your eyes. You can observe the flicker of a flame, or the waves hitting the shore. The main thing is to get lost in peace. Go in such a state of peace, that negative thoughts that were bothering you earlier tend rise to the surface, such as how embarrassed you were about that stain on your suit at work. This time, they won’t affect you because you are such in a state of peace that you will not care as feelings are more powerful than thoughts. Law of Attraction practitioners often forget that feelings also cause thoughts, it’s not just the other way around. Yes, thoughts can cause feelings, but feelings can cause thoughts as well.

KATIE GALLANTI: “Soul Fatigue — How To Recharge Your Soul Essence In Your Physical Body”

bffa841df8e8dca3c8d82af56ee5e5f0b5a280f8

“This is a very simple process, recharges you and boosts the vibration of both your self and the Earth.”

~Katie Gallanti

 

A lot of old souls are really tired right now. The project Shift Earth has been lasting a few years too many and many feel that they are barely still standing while they crawl to the finish line.

Honor your Soul fatigue, but also don’t quit… ask the universe to recharge you and know that it will. Also ask for your field to be cleared and for your energy to be topped up at night, so that you can truly rest when you sleep. Many of us need the rejuvenation.

Also ask to be cleared of collective energy. While it is important for us to contribute to the collective field and stabilize it, we don’t have to carry the collective energy 24/7. A lot of chaos right now, some of it manufactured, so important to have clear fields and ongoing Source downloads, so we can contribute to the uplifting the energy, rather than being drowned by it.

Imagine the Source energy descending into your crown, spreading into your body, and recharging and uplifting every cell and molecule within you. And then see this energy descending to your root chakra, rooting into the ground and charging the Earth Core. See the energy then pulsing outwards, clearing and recharging the Earth field and its grids.

This is a very simple process, recharges you and boosts the vibration of both your self and the Earth. Very needed at this time to counter conflict and chaos energies.

 

Sending Love

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “How to Receive Guidance from Your Heart”

receive-guidance-from-your-heart

There are so many guiding forces in this life that are helping us along the way. These guiding forces include Divine beings, the Universe, your intuition, your heart and your mind.

Your heart is an intelligent, guiding force that is linked to both your soul and your intuition. Often we relate our heart to our emotions, but our heart is far more powerful than this.

Emotions can sometimes be misleading. Our emotions can be triggered by our mind, our thoughts and how we choose perceive things. This can color the emotions that we feel and cause emotions to cloud our judgement.

We have all been swept away by our emotions at times and then later perhaps regretted the actions that we took or the words that we said.

While emotions themselves can provide clues as to which direction we should head in, often emotions are only the first step at uncovering what our heart is really trying to say.

Being in-tune with your heart is about going deeper into your emotions and truly understanding why you feel a certain way and where this feeling really comes from.

When you really tune into your heart and clear past the emotions and the mind, often the answers are gentle, wise and rooted in love.

Being able to move out of your mind and into your heart is a powerful way to live your life and is great for receiving guidance when you are unsure of what to do or where to turn.

Here is how to receive guidance from your heart-

(This is best done when you are not in a highly emotional place, wait for the emotions to simmer for better results).

1. Find a quiet place where you can’t be disturbed. Close your eyes and take 3-4 deep breaths. Place your hand over your heart and in your minds eye, visualize the feeling of dropping into your heart. Feel your energy dropping into your heart center. Try to feel your heart beating.

2. Once you can “feel” your heart sit with this energy for a moment. Allow the energy to wash over you and continue focusing on strengthening the energy around your heart. You may even want to visualize a pink or green light growing stronger around your heart.

3. As you allow your heart energy to grow, you may notice different feelings of clarity or you may even receive a “knowing” or guidance from your heart. Surrender to the feeling.

4. Once you are ready, open your eyes. When receiving guidance from the heart the answer is usually a feeling or an intuitive knowing, so there is no need to ask your heart a question. Once you have sat in the energy of your heart, it is likely the answer will come to you naturally.

5. You can keep repeating this exercise whenever you feel the need to. It is also a great exercise for helping you to stay out of your mind and in vibration with your soul.

ALEXA PELLEGRINI: “The Power of Water for Healing and Spiritual Growth”

Art-39a-700x325 (2)

Our organs and our cells are comprised of water – in fact, up to 60% of our bodies is made from water alone! Yet as a society, we continue to forget the healing benefits of water and consistently choose soft drinks, coffee, flavored water and energy drinks as water substitutes. Water – and not Vitamin water or sparkling soda, but real, pure water is your best friend on your journey to repairing your mental and physical health and increasing your vitality.

Why Water is Vital to Your Overall Health

Imagine a dam in a river that’s been closed off. Suddenly, the river’s flow begins to weaken, and everything that’s a part of the river’s ecosystem begins to fall apart. Fish and small mammals can no longer absorb the nutrients they need from the water. Waste from the river has nowhere to go, so its population dies off. When the water disappears, so does the vitality of the environment. The human body operates similarly: without water to usher nutrients and proteins throughout the body, the body’s organs begin to shut down. Even the food we absorb can’t be properly digested without water to act as a lubricant. Without water, our body also has no way to expel toxins or pollutants, which increases our chances of acquiring serious ailments from constipation to cancer. The body’s ‘ecosystem’ perishes.

There’s one organ in your body that needs water the most: your brain! The brain is 75% water. Without proper water intake, the clarity of your thinking will decrease and you may be in a perpetual state of fatigue without knowing why. The best way to preserve your brain health and boost its performance is not just to use it, but to nurture it and care for it. Your brain never stops running, and it requires constant fuel. So, before you reach for that cup of coffee in the morning, start your daily routine off on the right foot by showing some love to your gray matter and having an 8 ounce glass of water.

Power of Water

Water Not Only Nourishes Us – it Also Heals the Soul

Water has always been emphasized for its nutritional value, but its other healing benefits shouldn’t be overlooked. Even observing the ocean or a flowing stream of water can soothe the troubled mind. Perhaps one of the reasons we feel so comfortable in the water and listening to the sounds of rushing water is because it mimics the fetal state. From conception, we develop while floating in the embryonic fluids of our mother’s womb. Floating on the surface of a warm bath or pool can draw us into a state of total comfort and relaxation as we subconsciously return to feeling completely nurtured and protected, just like we did before birth. When we surrender our need to be physically grounded and allow the water to hold us, we also lose our need for rigid self-control and total self-reliance. One of the best ways to mentally unwind and relieve stress is to go for a swim, then float on your back and do some simple deep breathing.

Power of WaterSalt water is also a wonderful natural alternative to traditional anti-inflammatory agents. Gargling with salt water helps strip away excess mucus and bacteria lingering at the back of the throat and in the tonsils to either prevent or treat a cold and a bad sore throat. Bathing in warm salt water or swimming in the sea can help dry up acne, scab over minor open wounds and encourage the drainage of harmful toxins from the lymph nodes.

Listening to water during meditation and visualizing water are two excellent ways to help reduce stress after a long, difficult day. The body, when held in a constant state of tension for long periods of time, has been proven to suffer – scientists have found a link between consistently high stress levels and an increased chance of getting heart disease, cancer, anxiety disorders and other serious conditions. The following exercise will help you take advantage of the healing power of water to reduce your stress levels and stay well.

Step 1: Begin by taking some deep breaths. Continue to breathe until you quiet your thoughts and feel relaxed.

Step 2: Start to envision any kind of water: an ocean, a stream, a brook, even the rain. Construct this visual in your mind, then try to picture what the water sounds like. Focus solely on the images and sounds running through your mind. How does the sight and sound of the water make you feel?

Step 3: Now, picture immersing yourself in the water. Whether it’s allowing the rain to glide over your skin, or diving head-first into a beautiful, warm pool, visualize your anxiety, fear, anger and stress melting away as soon as the water touches your body.

Step 4: Close the exercise with a few deep breaths, and exit the meditation feeling cleansed and revitalized.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Creating Your Own Reality is as Simple as Mastering 3 Universal Laws “

Art-30-700x325.jpg

I used to believe that the concept of creating your own reality was a crock of crap – until I took time to understand energy, quantum theories, and the way the universe works in collaboration with the one stream of consciousness known as the collective. Today, I have the ability to manifest goodness, but I can also manifest other things that bring me ‘lessons’. Regardless of which scenario manifested – I realize that my thoughts, words, and actions INDEED created my reality in both cases.

When it comes to words and thoughts, there are three simple ‘laws’ that govern our reality, and understanding these concepts will have you creating your own reality and seeing your needs and desires manifest before your eyes. A powerful book by Rich Work called “The Healer Within” broke these laws down very simply and they inspired my shift into the healing and manifesting paradigm. If you want a simple and effective introduction into tapping into your higher power, I recommend his read highly. Meanwhile here’s a brief overview of how you can work WITH or against the universe in creating your own reality starting TODAY!

 

#1 – The Law of Magnetic Attraction

You are a magnet for whatever you FOCUS ON…be it what you truly want or be it situations you wish you weren’t currently in. So if you want to attract love, you cannot be in the mindset of pining for it, and if you want success, you cannot find yourself filled with negative thoughts like “I’ll never get that raise.” Your thoughts and words send out vibrations into the universe, and the universe takes its cues from the resonance of the collective consciousness – which we are all a part of. Essentially, just focusing on what you want and don’t have almost ensures that you will never have it! Eliminate negative thoughts and words concerning it via the principles of Law #2.

#2 – The Law of Creative Manifestation

Einstein once said, “Thought is energy, to create it, just use your imagination.” Essentially rather than focusing intently on what you want, put your energy into creative visualization. Act and live every day as if you already HAVE what you desire, which reinforces and supports manifestation in both the physical and multi-dimensional universe. Avoid negative energies and situations that don’t reinforce your manifestation goals or desires.

#3 – The Law of Allowing

If you are truly freeing yourself to the manifestation energies of the universe, you can’t get in the middle and attempt to control the traffic or the speed in which things unfold. One doesn’t typically ask the assistance of a doctor or lawyer and then tell them how to do their job. One doesn’t typically pray and then tell God how and when to get their request fulfilled – and the universe doesn’t work that way either. In fact, the more you EXPECT, PRAY, TRY, HOPE, ASK WHEN etc. concerning your desires – the less power you give the universe to assist you via the Law of Allowing.While it can be challenging to ‘let it all go’ once your desire is put out into the collective conscious you must allow the universe the time and space to do it’s manifestation magic.

 

Knowing that you can create your own reality is empowering, and what I once believed to be impossible to attain, I now know is only limited by my own conscious and subconscious actions, thoughts, and words. What are your personal manifestation tools, tips, and success stories?

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “How to Create Your Own Power Morning Ritual”

morning ritual

Image Artwork by Annelie Solis

The morning is a powerful time of day. It is during the first moments of waking that your mind is shifting from the subconscious stages of sleep into the more conscious state of reality.

During this transition, your mind and heart are open, alive and just waiting to soak up the energy of the new day.

The wisdom of your soul is also more readily accessible and your creativity, problem solving skills and motivation are at their highest.

This is why it is commonly believed that how you spend the first 30 minutes after waking will determine the energy that you move through the rest of the day with.

When you start the day with a power ritual it can help you to –

  • Maintain your energetic vibration
  • Feel more positive
  • Feel more aligned with your purpose
  • Feel motivated and inspired to create and get things done
  • Tune into your intuition
  • Be more productive

There are really no rules when it comes to creating the perfect morning ritual however, here are some suggestions to get you started.

Power Morning Ritual Ingredients

Pick at least 3 of the following below to create your own ritual. Feel free to mix and match and shake things up as and when needed.

 Gratitude

Take a moment to express gratitude for the day ahead. Feel thankful and appreciative of all the amazing opportunities that the day holds for you. You may also want to give thanks for your amazing body, the comfortable bed you got to sleep in and the beautiful dreams that you had last night.

Forgive and Release

Forgive and release yesterday. It is so important to view each day with fresh eyes and a fresh mind. Release and forgive any negative events or feelings. Remind yourself that all is ok, and that today is going to be a new day.

Visualisation 

If there is an important event scheduled or something you are feeling nervous about, perhaps visualise in your mind the outcome that you desire and trust that you will be protected and supported by the Universe. You can even call on your spirit guides to be with you during this event.

Aura Restoration Shower

As you shower, imagine the water washing away yesterday and the soap, cleansing and forgiving any harsh energy that may still be present. As the soap is rinsed off, imagine your body being cleansed in a beautiful, white light.

Meditation/Creativity

Meditating in the morning has numerous benefits, but so does deep breathing, journalling and artwork. Spend time focusing on these activities for at least 10 minutes every morning. This small time out of your day will help to get your creative juices flowing and will help to raise your vibration.

Nourish

Starting the day with a nutritious meal is very important. Aim to eat as healthy as possible at breakfast time, as this helps to kick start your metabolism and can fuel your body for the rest of the day. Some good options include green tea, oatmeal, organic cereal/granola and green smoothies.

Affirmations

Find a power affirmation or mantra that will support and guide you throughout the day. Recite it to yourself while you are getting ready for the day ahead. Here are some great affirmations that you can use which will help align you with your soul. Alternatively, a great, no-fail mantra is always “I love myself”. 

Exercise

Exercise is a great way to get your energy moving and flowing for the day ahead. If getting up for a morning jog or yoga is not your style, simply do some light stretches and get the energy moving and flowing around your body. You could even put on some music and dance your way through the morning.

Use these ingredients to create your own ritual, just try to avoid involving technology, emails or social media in your morning ritual. As much I would love you all to wake up and read Forever Conscious every morning, I think you would experience far more benefits by spending time with just YOU (then please read my blog… ♥).

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Why Following Your Dreams Is Not What You Think”

following-your-dreams (2)

Follow your dreams.  We have all heard that inspirational saying before, right?  But what does it really mean?

Following your dreams is really about following that creative inspiration or that heart desire that dwells within. It is about following a vision that you have for yourself and using it as a guide.

Dreams can be very powerful and can often lead us to our higher path, but the concept of following your dreams has been somewhat lost and misinterpreted in today’s society.

Today, we view following your dreams as having a goal or a task in mind and then setting out to achieve it against all odds. We are told that the harder we work and the more we fight for it, the closer we are going to get to creating our dreams.

There is very little focus placed on the quality of the journey and the focus becomes the end product. As long as you reach that end product or that end goal, you would have found success and your “dream”.

It is this mentality of going after your dreams that has caused a lot of people to feel stressed, depressed and even like a failure. It has also caused a lot of people to give up on following their dreams.

The reality is that following your dreams can start to become more like a nightmare, especially if you are confused about what “following your dreams” really means.

Following your dreams is not about chasing an end product or end goal. It is not about visualising and then trying to create that exact same visual in the physical world.

Why?

All of these are very limiting concepts and dreams are anything but limited.

Dreams are unlimited, they are full of twists and turns and secret passages. They are not rigid or fixed or locked in their ways, they are fluid.

Dreams follow our heart desires and ultimately what makes us feel good in the present moment.

Dreams are forever changing, ebbing and flowing along with the tide of your world. But too easily in this process, the ego-mind can get in the way and force us to become too fixated on the end goal.

Dreams are about following the inspiration of the moment and being open to what each moment has in store. It is about being flexible and open enough to realise when you need to change course or perhaps head in another direction.

Dreams are not about setting a limiting goal and then forcing yourself to have a one track mind in order to achieve it.

Dreams are ultimately never ending. They allow us to feel the joy in every single moment of every single day.

When we follow our dreams, we are essentially following our inspiration and our inner wisdom, and this can lead us to millions of different destinations.

Many years ago I had the dream of becoming an actor. I was able to turn this dream into a reality and it lead me to move from Australia to the USA.

When I got to the US however, my dream started to pull me in the new direction of writing. I followed that dream and here you are reading my writing today.

If I had been so fixated on my goal of acting, I never would have felt the pull to create or do something else. If I had been so limited on focusing on my acting career, I never would have discovered this other passion or side of me.

While there is nothing wrong with having a dream and going after it, you have to be open to where it takes you.

When you get fixated on just one thing, it limits you and draws too much of your energy away from the bigger picture. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, eventually it can leave you feeling burnt out, stressed and lacking passion.

Dreams are magical and are destined to take us places. When we follow our dreams and the inspiration that they give us, that is when true magic happens.

When you turn your dreams into a fixated goal however, they lose their dream-like quality and stop you from truly tapping into your heart’s desire.

So, by all means, follow your dreams, just don’t turn your dreams into a rigid, structured expectation. Instead, allow your dreams to become big, expansive and always-evolving.

ALEXA PELLEGRINI: “Find Yourself: Mantras for Self-Discovery, Freedom and Joy”

Header-32-700x325

Our world is constantly evolving and constantly demanding that we, as a society and as individuals, evolve with it. Finding love and living an authentic lifestyle have become secondary to achieving professional success and financial security. Many of us become so immersed in our daily routines that over time, we lose touch with ourselves and our dreams.

In order to heal, we must understand that drive, ambition and materialism can only take us so far before we suffer under the weight of emptiness, regardless of how successful we are by society’s standards.  Even after achieving our goals, we may feel unsatisfied and continue to crave validation or material comforts to quiet an inner lack of self-acceptance and love. Where, then, can happiness be found?

As you embark on the soul’s journey to enlightenment, you will discover the greatest success you can attain is connecting with your higher self and integrating love into your life. ‘Happiness’ is not derived from the material, nor is it attainable only to a select few. Finding happiness is simple: when we release our obsessions over attaining the ‘perfect’ success and material security, we free our hearts and move closer to experiencing an authentic, joyful existence.

Find yourself in a chaotic, apathetic world

Why Recite Mantras? Mantras Guide Us to Love

By accessing the power of speech through mantras, you can re-frame your thinking to purify negativity with love. Mantras are simple yet powerful phrases that are continuously recited in order to provide a healing, stabilizing effect on the mind. The repetitious quality of mantras yield the potential to open doors to achieving love, happiness and meaningful accomplishments.

Anxiety, perfectionism, guilt and pessimism are common roadblocks to finding freedom from the ‘rat race’. The following mantras offers solutions to overcoming these barriers. Ideally, sit in a serene space and repeat each desired mantra at your preferred pace. Slow pacing will calm the heart and reduce anxiety. Fast pacing will provide an intense, regenerative effect that will increase your pulse and breathing; be aware of your energy levels during fast recitation.

Reciting mantras allows for self-acceptance and inner peace

1. Everything ends.

When you are overwhelmed by anxiety or believe you are ‘stuck’ in a situation, you must remember that everything ends. Life is composed of cycles; every negative cycle must occur for a positive cycle to begin. Even our most frustrating, terrible cycles will come to an end. A difficult situation is not a permanent barrier to any kind of happiness.

2: I am enough.

Perfectionism is a major roadblock to incorporating love and happiness into your life. Take a moment each day to remind yourself that you are enough. Who has told you that you are ‘not good enough’? Will punishing yourself bring love and prosperity? As you recite this mantra, look at yourself in the mirror–be your own best supporter. This mantra should be repeated to counteract negative self-talk.

3: My life is my own.

This is particularly helpful for those who feel obligated to take on the responsibilities of others, and for those who feel guilty for having their own needs. Only by honoring your true desires without being restricted by the unrealistic expectations of others will you ever truly find happiness. Every being is entitled to follow his unique path — excessive self-sacrifice will only create a harmful imbalance in your life and the lives of others.

4: Let love be my guide.

There is nothing as holistic and cleansing as integrating love as a guiding energy into your life. Give into the divine will of the Universe by releasing all negative thinking; when your mind and heart have opened, you will see joy unfold before your eyes. As you recite this mantra, imagine a warm, pink light wrapping around your body like a blanket, drawing out all darkness from your auric field.

L.J. DEVON: “Meditating For Just A Few Minutes Each Day Reduces Stress While Boosting Feelings Of Happiness”

meditating-at-sunset

We are constantly taking information in through our corporeal senses. Technology and social media are constantly streaming noise, beliefs, news and chatter into our hearts and minds. When we stop to meditate, all the noise dissipates. In this moment, we can now take a deep breath and listen.

In the stillness, in the quiet, everything changes. We are no longer dependent on information from our material world. When we stop, listen and breathe, we can begin to connect with ourselves on a much deeper level.

As we focus our attention inward, into imagination and visualization, relaxation ensues. The heart and the mind are put at ease. As breathing slows, as tension is released, blood pressure can normalize. In this state, our greatest fears and anxieties can be addressed.

Meditation benefits mind, body and spirit

In the January 2014 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers published a comprehensive review on the benefits of meditation. Not only is meditation observed and documented as a way to relieve anxiety, but it can also be used as a means to reduce pain and manage depression. These benefits are all possible because the sympathetic nervous system is engaged and regulated more effectively for important functions such as oxygen intake through deep breathing, a steadier heart rate and lowered blood pressure.

Burke Lennihan, a registered nurse who teaches meditation at the Harvard University Center for Wellness, says the benefits of meditation extend beyond just the physical. “True, it will help you lower your blood pressure, but so much more: it can help your creativity, your intuition, your connection with your inner self,” she says.

Various forms of meditation help people heal in different ways

Many people, not recognizing it, have engaged in forms of meditation throughout their lives to cope with big decisions and life changes. Walking meditation or prayerful meditation are two common examples where one tunes out of the material world and focuses the mind, heart or breath. The benefits of meditation are even more powerful when practiced regularly as a discipline.

Concentration mediation teaches one how to direct and focus the mind to achieve desired results. Mindfulness meditation helps one address the negative thoughts that enter the mind so they can be dealt with in a healthy manner. Heart-centered mediation helps one bring awareness to the powerful energy center in the chest, helping one manage emotions and relationship difficulties. In Tai chi and qigong, mediation is combined with physical exercise to enhance breathing and focus. In transcendental meditation, one repeats a mantra, whether it’s a word, phrase or sound, to quiet thoughts and to achieve greater awareness of oneself and the connection to all living things.

Burke Lennihan says that the most powerful experience is when two or more people gather to meditate. When a teacher is present, a verbal guided visualization can be initiated to stimulate the meditative experience of individuals and the group as a whole. Giving feedback after a group meditation, whether to the group as a whole or to a friend, is a powerful experience as well, as illusions and judgments of one another are shattered.

Lennihan says meditation doesn’t have to be complex. It can as simple as doing deep breathing exercises. Meditation can be a launching pad to connect with oneself, filter out negativity, deprogram from social conditioning, or connect with others on a deeper level.

Lennihan says that it’s great to start with 10 minutes of quiet time each day, and to set aside a safe, quiet place. “You’ll build up a special feeling there, making it easier to get into a meditative state more quickly,” she says. Symbols, photos, candles, herbs, crystals, essential oils and articles of nature are often used to surround a meditation practice to make the experience more personal, centered and meaningful for the individual.

The practice of meditation is an important healing art that can be a useful vehicle for finding inner calm and inner strength in the most stressful situations in life. These self-control techniques can help one manage stress more effectively, slow the aging process and create more positive interactions with others.

ALEXA PELLEGRINI: “Everyday Shamanism: Accessing the Healer Within”

Shamanism

Several years ago, I never would have dreamed of calling myself a Shaman. But, after incorporating principles of shamanism into my daily routine, I’ve experienced how just about anyone can be a Shaman. After dealing with emotional trauma connected to illnesses and broken relationships, I looked into alternative healing methods in order to cleanse myself of negative energy. Learning about the ways of the Shaman enlightened me to the interconnectedness of all things and taught me how to tap into my own energy in order to heal my soul.

Shamanism is all about coming into yourself — your own power. A traditional Shaman enters alternate dimensions in order to rebalance a client’s mind/body/spirit connection and to retrieve fragments of the soul lost to emotional, mental or physical trauma. However, Shamanism is unique because it’s accessible. You don’t need a fancy certificate in order to become a Shaman. In order to be a true Shaman, you must be ready to reactive your consciousness, face your truths and release what holds you back. If you’re ready to take back control of your life from pain, anxiety and fear, these Shamanic principles are perfect for you.

ShamanismHonor the Spirt of Mother Earth

Unplug your laptop, cellphone and get outside for at least 20 minutes each day. Practice gratefulness by acknowledging all that the earth gives us. Send positive energy to the earth by giving back: volunteer to clean up a forest or park, pick up litter when you see it, and conserve your water. If you’re not already recycling, make it a goal to start. Try gardening and if possible, buy locally grown food. Spending time in nature will refresh and invigorate your spirit. Taking a walk outdoors, especially around greenery, will cleanse your Root Chakra, ground you and ease your anxieties. 

Recognize the Effects of your Energy 

Do you tend to attract difficult people or damaging relationships? Are you struggling to manifest what you want? The chances are, your own energy is the root cause. Avoid wasting energy on anger and cynicism, as this tends to invite negative people and situations into your life. When you have negative thoughts, replace them with optimistic words and compassionate images to attract loving energy. Shamans focus on manifesting a reality filled with love. In a reality filled with love, there is no room for the existence of hate, and you will free yourself of attracting these painful energies.

Tune into Nature’s Hidden Messages

Shamans are always attuned to coincidences and hidden meanings, especially those found in nature. A favorite animal or an animal that continues to cross your path may be your spirit animal visiting you as a wake-up call or to remind you of your strengths. You can research this animal’s symbolic meaning and how it fits into your journey toward spiritual ascension. To discover your spirit animal, try this Shamanic healing exercise. All you need is a quiet space and a shard of Amethyst.

    A Shamanic Healing Exercise: Find Your Spirit Animal

  1. Breathe in and out through your nose 10 times. Relax and listen to the flow of your breathing.
  2. Imagine yourself in a sacred space disconnected from the chaos of the world — the beach, the forest, a mountain top. What sounds do you hear? What colors do you see?
  3. Now, hold your Amethyst on the center of your forehead, on the Third Eye Chakra. Allow your mind to relax and open up to receiving divine messages from your spirit guides. Picture a soothing, violet glow enveloping your forehead, clearing out blockages your psyche.
  4. Envision your spirit guides coming to you in animal form. What animal do you see? How do you feel within its presence? What sort of energy or message is it sending to you?
  5. When you’re ready, envision yourself approaching your spirit animal and reach out to touch it. Take in the power, strength and courage of your spirit animal; feel yourself absorb its love and light into all of your Chakras, freeing you of anxiety and pain.

ShamanismHealing Changes Start from Within

In practice, a Shaman assists her client as he enters alternate spirit dimensions and becomes empowered during the healing process. The Shaman doesn’t do the work for him — she simply guides him on the journey as he heals himself on a spiritual plane. The bottom line: you are your own best healer. Look deep within yourself and examine everything in your life that works and doesn’t work, and don’t be afraid to make changes. Shamanism is built on the foundation that change is an inevitable part of life, and only you have the power to make the changes necessary to manifest the reality you seek.
