Light Beings

Sunday May 25, 2014
angelsAuras (colors and light) envelope our physical bodies are enveloped by our auras (colors and light). Some people are able to see auras plain as the nose on your face. Others only get a glimpse of an aura around someone now and again. I don't know why we are so surprised or delighted when this happens. These glimpses serve as a reminder that we are first and foremost spiritual beings. Our physical bodies are secondary to who we are. To live on this planet not only is it fashionable to have a human cloak, being connected to a body is a necessity to having a human experience. That's the whole point of being here, to experience challenges and joys of being human in order to evolve spiritually.

It can be even more surprising to see (or sense) a light (orb, beam, light flash, or human shape) without a manifested form. When this occurs you are likely encountering an angel, spirit guide, or ascended master. Eileen Smith, Ask An Angel columnist, says that she associates certain light colors with the archangels, blue for Archangel Michael and yellow for Archangel Gabriel...etc. (See Colors and the Archangels).

Reiki Bloggers Tell Why They Love Reiki

Tuesday May 13, 2014
Reiki Bloggers
You are invited to tell about your Reiki blog and share why you love Reiki. Get your blog indexed in my Reiki Blogs Directory. Also, if you love Reiki but do not write a Reiki blog we'd still like to hear why you love Reiki, tell why you love Reiki here.

What some of the top-notch Reiki Bloggers are saying about Reiki:

reiki blogsJanet Dagley Dagley says "Reiki isn't just a healing modality -- it's a way of life. When I took my first Reiki class some years ago, I thought I would just be adding Reiki to my toolkit as one of many ways I could help people. But after that initial experience, I began my regular daily personal practice and found it helpful in every aspect of my life. Reiki has no contraindications, it's safe, gentle, and easy to learn and practice. You can learn it in a weekend and practice it for a lifetime."

reiki blogsAstrid Lee says "What's not to LOVE? Reiki makes everything better, simply & effectively. It is powerful, doesn't require anything but a pure heart and attunement. It is both a first-aid kit in your hand and a tool for alignment to be on your path of most light."

reiki blogsPamir Kiciman says "Personal transformation and spiritual evolution are only truly effective when practice-based and not merely as good 'ideas.' Reiki is a very practical, user-friendly, practice-based teaching that brings about change in a direct, beautiful way. I love Reiki because it is easy and simple and highly effective."

reiki blogsPamela Miles says "I am an avid do-it-yourselfer with a curiosity that doesn't let up, and I love to stay active and be productive. At the same time, I've always been aware of a place of profound silence and stillness within, and I started practicing meditation and yoga as a kid. In 1986, while in the midst of early pregnancy blahs, a friend offered me a Reiki treatment. The immediate centering, relaxation, and flush of well-being was palpable. I couldn't wait to learn to practice myself--which I did the very next week. And I've been practicing and sharing Reiki ever since."

Are You Breathing Properly? Say Ahhhh!

Monday May 12, 2014
Probably one of the most common mistake people make is withholding breath. There are far too many shallow breathers on the planet. Training yourself how to breathe properly is very important!
After each deep cleansing breath
I release negative thoughts and sadness
With each following upbreath
I accept postive thoughts and happiness
To fill the totality of my body and spirit


Affirmation of the Day

Focusing on Shifting Priorities

Friday May 9, 2014
focus

Being focused and having clear intent is very important for accomplishing your daily initiatives and reaching long term goals.

As important as it is to align ourselves with our intentions and stay focused, I feel it is also just as important being able to go with the flow and be willing to take a different approach. It is wise to duck a curve ball, or take your eyes off the ball and sit on the bench for a bit to rejuvenate your energies.

Life upsets can throw us off our game. For example, I've been suffering from a weather-change triggered migraine the last couple of days. It is difficult to remain focused when pain or unexpected disruption derails our plans. Because of my dis-ease I am lowering my expectations for today and plan to tend to only those things that require my attention today. I accept that this is not a day I'm going to be at my most productive. I don't think I really have a choice, my pounding head is refusing to be ignored. Pain can be a demanding communicator. I acknowledge and respect this pain so my focus has shifted to caring for my well being.

Top priorities, such as self-care or dealing with an unexpected crisis, deserve your FOCUS. Get clear about what your priorities are at the moment, please give these your full attention. Whether you are focusing on your work, education, family concerns, wellness, striving to meet a goal, (all of the above, or something else).... clear your mind, empty it of any mental clutter, and you'll do just fine. BE WELL.

Adding Mindfulness to Your Multitasking

Friday May 2, 2014
Even with superb multitasking skills a person can feel as if not enough has been done by the end of a day. Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all the details that need your attention? For years I told friends and family members that I felt like I was forever chasing my tail because of never catching up on an exhaustive to-do list... but no more. Although I fail to get everything accomplished that I would have liked almost everyday, I refuse to feel like a failure, my mantra now is-- Multitasking is a Myth. I try my very best to stay focused on whatever my task is at hand, and not concern myself with what comes next or what may be left undone. I cannot always block invading thoughts berating me to "hurry up" or "don't forget" --- but I am much calmer when I can maintain my focus on one task.

It is important to allot a few moments (sometimes an hour, or even longer) out of each day to recoup your energies. This is even more important on chaotic days. Purposely taking care of your own needs in this manner is not selfish. Routinely restoring balance into your daily existence will instill an inner calmness and also prepare you for any storm that may come your way.

If you feel you need help in learning how to be gentle with yourself in this way you may find The Mindful Woman (compare prices) written by Sue Patton Thoele a great starting place.

Sue says "Because women possess an innate ability to perceive an expanded range of feelings, thoughts, and experiences, we are adept at consciously handling several things at once. That doesn't mean you don't get frazzled and frustrated. It does mean you can feel even better and more productive by attentively, purposely, and nonjudgmentally staying in the present moment."

Excerpt from The Mindful Woman: Busy Woman Can Be Mindful Too.

Using Flower Essences

Friday May 2, 2014
flower essence therapyFlower essences enjoy a reputation of being highly effective and very safe to use. Flower essences, or flower drops as I like to call them, can be taken directly from the stock bottle. Take a few drops at a time under the tongue, or three to four drops of an essence can be stirred into a liter of purified water which can be sipped throughout the day.

Source bottles of flower essences are readily available in today's market. It is fine to take drops directly from source preparations you have purchased or from your personal stock jars. However, if you are taking more than one flower essence it may be more convenient to prepare dosage bottles rather than taking each one separately from the source bottles. Plus, preparing your own dosage bottles makes flower essences more cost efficient. You can also prepare dosage bottles of 2 to 5 blended essences which will last you from ten to fifteen days.

Bach's Resue Remedy (also called the Five Flower Remedy) is blend of essences used in emergency situations to stabilize trauma situations. It eases fear and restores one's state of calm and confidence. photo: Jupiterimages

Is Your Job Blocking You from Your Vision of Yourself?

Wednesday April 30, 2014
holistic healing This is the question that Tara J. Kieves asked herself when she worked "successfully" as a litigator in the corporate world. Although she was financially beyond comfortable, able to enjoy expensive vacations, shop for clothing in fashion boutiques, etc., her inner spirit haunted her. Her inner ghost-spirit voice asked ""What about the you you wanted to become?"

Career Coach and bestselling author of THIS TIME I DANCE! Creating the Work You Love, Tara J. Kieves, writes about her decision to leave her time-taxing job and riches behind in order to "enrich" her spirit and live her dreams in the article The Living Have No Ghosts. Tara says "Only by living your dreams can you dispel your ghost. Your gnawing is your knowing. On the right path, there is no secret mortification and no phantoms."

Incense Sensitive

Tuesday April 29, 2014
Reader Email:
Robin wrote "I have just finished reading your article on scents (Are Scents Making You Sick?). Thank You is all I can say. It is SO wonderful to have this information here at About.com. Maybe more people will START to think BEFORE they "smell pretty." As I am sure you have no doubt already realized; I too have a Super or Hyper Sensitive Nose. It just never ceases to amaze me the affect as well as Effect that scent has on me. Of course it is not only perfumes, colognes etc. It is the smell of diesel fuel when it's being pumped next to me at the gas station, or the 17 spices and seasonings used at a local "Open Preparation" Restaurant. Or the ALMOST smell of rain that comes quite frequently here in AZ.

I was slightly surprised however at one thing you did NOT mention, but maybe it is JUST me that is affected by this one, Incense!! It is to ME at least, THE WORST sort of torture. No matter how much I might LIKE the smell of vanilla, once the process of binding ANY scent to incense has occurred... it is an abomination to have to endure. I cannot let it in my house, let alone burn it. I quite literally get cold chills just THINKING about it. I have even had to pay for a friend's cab ride home from a shopping trip once. While we were in the mall, each of us doing our own thing first, then meeting up to finish up, She purchased a good size supply of incense. I knew almost immediately that she had some, and when I asked her about it, she started to take all the packages out for me to "Check Out." NOT!!!! As I said I paid for her ride home, even in the trunk in the SEALED plastic bags I could still smell them.

Enough ranting on, I again just want to say Thank You, I truly enjoy "Your" portion of About, and can't wait for the next article. With Respect, RG


Dear Robin,
Thank you so much for your email and compliments on my Holistic Healing Guide site. I'm so sorry to hear that you too suffer from fragrances and other smells. Although I did not mention "incense" as an offensive smell for me, YES, some of them (most of them) set me off. Remember the potpourri craze in the late eighties? Everyone was smelling up their households with simmering toxins. I am surprised that you are bothered by the "almost smell of rain" in Arizona. I live in Iowa and generally enjoy the smell of pre-rain and rain.

Below is a recent comment from another reader on this subject

Comment from Deb Re: Ackk!! - Perfume Attack!

I feel your pain.For years I thought that I had sinus headaches. My doctor finally diagnosed me with migraines.My main trigger? FRAGRANCES! You find them everywhere! You can't even use the restroom in a restaurant with gettin bombarded by airfreshner.

When you tell people that you get migraines from fragrances, they look at you like you have 2 heads. They think it's your imagination! I think all fragrances should be banned from public places. Employers should get serious about policies regarding fragrances. So many people are affected by them. Fragrances trigger asthma and allergy attacks, migraines, sinus headaches, etc.

Tuesday April 29, 2014
famous birthdays

Born on this Day: April 29, 1856
Francis Schlatter (aka The New Mexican Messiah, The greatest Divine Healer of this century, The Saint of Denver, The Pilgrim of God, The Healing Prophet, The poor cobbler of Colorado, and The Christ Man)

Date of Death: ? 1896

Zodiac Sun Sign: Taurus

Contribution to the Healing Community: Missionary, Laying on of Hands Faith Healer.

Divine Healer, Francis Schlatter, who drew crowds as a miracle worker attributed his healings to the power of the heavenly Father and the faith of the recipients who experienced cures at his hands. Born in Ebersheim, Alsace, his trade was cobbler. His religion, Catholic. After his father's death he immigrated to the United States from Germany. He first settled in the fishing community of Jamestown, Long Island. He was employed as a fireman on a fishing steamer for a short while, but eventually took up shoe making again. Schlatter later moved to Denver, Colorado where his healing ministry began. He later took a walking trek to Cheyenne Wyoming which took over seven hundred days before returning back to Denver. Traveling through desert regions he was often viewed as a vagrant and would sometimes have run-ins with the law. Schlatter revealed upon his return that during his wanderings he had spiritual experiences (fasting, tempted by evil, visions, and communications with Father God). Last seen in January 1896 there remains a mystery as to the actual date and place of his death.
