What would you say to our Mother Earth?

Awesome reading

Goddess Spiral Health Coaching

Goddess- Gaia by Paola Suarez Goddess Spiral

…Oh Gaia, I believe you don’t value humans anymore than any other living being. Living with that belief is sobering. Oddly enough it also makes me want to be with you more . This isn’t because it would make me more of a Goddess woman or a better Neopagan. It’s because you force me to be present. I can’t help but be conscious of what is around me– be it gnats or gorgeous foliage. You make me think of balance, community, and being with the uncomfortable. You help me understand that dirt and bugs are a part of life. I am a part of something bigger. You, Gaia, are where everything dies and is reborn…

Happy Mother Earth day! What would you say our Mother Earth, dearest Gaia, if you could?

I planted seeds

Awesome intentions

Goddess Spiral Health Coaching

Spring altar Goddess Spiral 2014 a

Seeds are magical.

For Ostara we planted five seeds. 
The soil that held them was mixed with ashes.
Ashes that had once been paper,
that had once held our Imbolc intentions,
and that now nourished the soil.
Our seeds, so small in the dark soil.
Tiny seeds of possibility– asleep.
We set them in the sun with water and our blessings.

I planted seeds as a child.
I plant seeds as an adult,
experiencing the anticipation and wonder anew.
I ran to peer at the soil every day,
hoping for growth and new beginnings.
The adult kept the excitement away.
The adult made plans if the seeds did not grow.
The child stayed hopeful and rejoiced when seedlings emerged.

Ostara seedlings Goddess Spiral

Seedlings are magical.

Our “babies”, our seedlings.
Tiny and delicate, they persevere every day.
All five have grown.
All five lean towards the sun.
Some are stronger than others.
Some fall…

The Violet Flame: The Alchemist’s Dream

Awesome meditation

The Golden Age Of Aquarius

FOR CENTURIES, alchemists have sought to change base metals into gold. But the transmutation of metals like lead into gold is symbolic of a higher and more noble alchemy — the alchemy of self-transformation.

SELF-TRANSFORMATION was the goal of the most spiritual of alchemists. They sought a way to change the lead of negative human energy into the gold of divine energy, and some of them achieved this by using the violet flame. But first, let’s explore what the violet flame is, what it does and how it works.

The violet flame (also called the violet fire) is a unique spiritual energy that can help you in all areas of your life. It can heal emotional and physical problems, improve your relationships, help you to grow spiritually, or just make life easier.

The flame is the essence of a unique spiritual light. Mystics of…

A Thought to Ponder from The Urantia Book

A Thought to Ponder from The Urantia Book

“It is high time that man had a religious experience so personal and so sublime that it could be realized and expressed only by ‘feelings that lie too deep for words.’ ”

Is Reiki Limiting Your Abilities?

As an energy worker I no longer use Reiki as a healing tool, even though I’m a Reiki master.  In 1997 when I received my Reiki master training in the Usui tradition we learned our hand positions which were awesome for general work such as stress relief, health tune up’s and overall well being.  But as I quickly learned, the formula of Reiki is extremely limited in its scope.  Assuming of course you never deviate from your original teachings.

But if you leave your comfort zone long enough you will begin to understand that healing does not come from the hands of any healer, it comes directly from the divine source.  Reiki is just a system, one of many that people have created.  True, all energy healing systems channel healing.  It is the method in which healing is delivered that makes the difference.  I have always found that when I step aside and allow the divine mind to direct what I do that healing is much more powerful and permanent.

For instance, if a person has a headache what they really need is relaxation and the pulling of the pain from their body.  So directing energy to an elbow is not necessarily helpful.  Creating a pathway for the pain energy to leave IS helpful.  But in the Reiki tradition which I learned that was not an option.  In fact creating pathways for energy to travel was not even taught.

I have discovered over my Reiki career that the healing force doesn’t care about my hand positions.  Unfortunately with our “good intentions” we quite often subvert and redirect that healing energy from where it is needed to where we wanted it to go.  You might be shaking your head about now, but think about it for a second.  We are like a pipeline taking the energy from the source and sending it to its destination.  Or even liked electrical current.  We direct the path of electricity by flipping a switch on or off.  Our intention can send the energy off in the wrong direction, or block it all together.

It really does pay to listen to your spirit guides, the healing angels and the guides of the person you’re working with.  While working on my mother’s arthritic knee I had a shaman standing across the table telling me to blow on her knee.  I actually thought that was rather stupid, and that I was imagining it.  But again the strong urge from the shaman to blow on her knee interrupted my concentration on filling her knee with healing energy.  I again said no.  It just seemed not right somehow.  The third time the shaman yelled at me to blow on her knee.  Desperate to get rid of him I humored him and blew on her knee.  At that point I felt energy move like I never had before, my mom opened her eyes and ask me what I had just done; she related that her knee was completely pain free.

After telling her my experience with the shaman, she said “you should’ve listened the first time.”  It was at that point I heard fading laughter and I knew my shaman teacher was laughing his butt off at me.  I got it, I did learn my lesson.  When you feel an entity, healer, angel, etc., You should listen to them no matter how strange it seems; just do it.  Save yourself being laughed at and do it first time.

That was the first of many such teachings.  To break out of that Reiki mold and work WITH the energy rather than directing the energy.  It may not seem like much of a difference but believe me, it is.

Now I just teach working with the energy; how to magnify it and use it for what your client needs.  Before you ask, no the client does not always know what they truly needing.  But spirit does.  The healing energy does.  Learning to be open and receptive to this change in the way we do our healing work, will go a long way toward amplifying the healing that is taking place on our planet.

What is Mind Control?

While perusing YouTube for meditation videos I came across a self hypnosis video for controlling others using your mind. My immediate reaction was one of surprise and disdain.

One of the comments on this video agreed with me calling it unethical.  But something about the video made me stop and think for a second time.  I gave it a listen and to my surprise it was remarkable similar to a meditation from a popular mind control method that has been around for years.  I even have that very same system and do the meditation frequently.

I got to thinking about trying to control others using my mental energies.  On the surface it does seem unethical, but really we try to influence others all the time.  We try to wear them down with our arguments for our own “rightness’ through what seems like endless debate.  We present convincing arguments and win people with our charm and verbal skill.  So what’s the difference?

I frankly don’t see any difference.  One form of control is just as good or bad as the other.  Perhaps the word “control” should be replaced with influence.  It puts a whole new light on the mind “control” issue.

When I was applying for disability it was recommended that every day I send love to the people that would be making the decision about my case.  Was this a form of control and influence over another person?  Was I right to do that?  Was I right in sending love concerning my case?  Or was I out of line in trying to influence the outcome?  Sending distance healing is another example of exerting control over a person’s health.  Reiki and laying on of hands is nothing more than trying to control/influence another person’s physical or emotional well being.

The strong-minded/strong-willed have always exerted influence over others.  Marketing and advertizing have been doing it since the beginning of time.  Again I don’t see the difference.  The lines are blurred for me.

Politicians do it every day!  It seems to me to be an ongoing battle for the control of our dollars, of votes, control of our work environment and projects and the pressing of personal agendas in all arenas.  Highly focusing your thoughts and the energies to obtaining a goal is the exact same thing as trying to control another’s thoughts.  You are sending that energy out and you expect cooperation in return.  Again I don’t see the difference.

I’m not saying that trying to control another person is a good thing.  But we do attempt to influence our world and the people in it for our own benefit.  That in itself is a form of mind control.  Simply being in close proximity to another person’s energy field blurs that space between us.  It creates an area of sharing of ideas, thoughts and feelings.  We cannot help but experience another person’s energy field.  Our energy field extends out about 5 feet and according to some about 25 feet.  So those people that live in very close communities like an apartment building, are constantly mingling energies.  It is unavoidable in this day and age.  This closeness means we feel our neighbors emotions which can be rather scary.  So would it be appropriate to send them calming energy if they’re angry?  Would that not to be a form of mind control?

There are no answers to these questions that I have posed, but I would like to know what you think.

We’ve all seen the cute saying “God couldn’t be everywhere, so He created________.”  You know: Moms, Dads, Grandparents—the list could go on a very long time.  Well, just for a moment, assume that The Divine did create special beings, which are with us at all the time.  Loving us, comforting us, healing us, making sure we look both ways before crossing the street, making sure we stay out of trouble buy ratting us out to mom (mother’s intuition), giving us that creepy feeling in the pit of our tummies that says something’s not right—get out now.  Seem silly?  Think again!  Angels are the Divine’s eyes and ears.  His/Her messengers.  Guardian Angels have taken on a life long assignment—you.  Not only do we have a direct link to the Divine, but to His/Her wise messenger as well.  Our Guardian Angel has much to offer, if we only listen.  Advice, comfort and healing are only a small portion of the Angelic wisdom that is available to us.  Just like an iceberg—the portion that you see is only 10% of the iceberg.  The largest part is hidden under the water.  So to with our Angels, the largest part of their wisdom and teaching is hidden in the depths of the relationship we usually take for granted, or worst yet, ignore all together.

Hopefully, we take time each day to converse with the Divine, but His/Her Angels are there too, waiting for our call, waiting for our attention.  If we spend a few minutes each day, saying “Good morning, how are you?” and remembering to listen for the answer, we open to a wealth of information and inspiration from which we can draw.  So if we take the time and seek the depths of our Angel’s wisdom, there is no telling the things we might accomplish—all because we choose to listen to the Divine’s Angelic messenger.

If you want to get in touch with your Angels but cant seen to get started, try a meditation specifically designed to bring your awareness of your Angel closer.  If you need meditation support, Try my youtube channel, Reiki Artist or Edith Mary Stanley, or look up the thousands of meditation available on youtube.  It’s a wonderful way to get started or to re-connect with the Divine in you.

Peace, Love and Pumpkin Pie,
