Meditation – Mind Body Skills Class

The first of our six Mind Body Skills Classes was held last Thursday, October 1 on Meditation. We introduced ourselves, explained a bit about why we were here. We first did a “Soft Belly” meditation where we inhaled, reciting “Soft” and exhaled, reciting “Belly” to ourselves. Many of us noticed a deep sense of relaxation after the exercise. Some of us had difficulty stopping our busy minds, but were encouraged to just return to the breathing if our thoughts interrupted the meditation. We learned about the three types of meditation:   Concentrative meditation – “Soft Belly” is a type of

Essential Oils

This will be a long post, but I just have to share.  I just attended a doTERRA® sponsored event featuring M.D.’s who are using the oils in their practices.  We heard from 3 MD’s who use oils in their practices, and one MSc who is a researcher  who has already published several studies based on the efficacy of essential oils.  She plans to write her PhD dissertation on this topic. Dr. Paul Winterton, M.D. is an Orthopedic Surgeon who uses oils extensively in his practice.  He uses frankincense and marjoram orally for pain and inflammation, Deep Blue topically, and he

Reiki Attunements

This past Reiki Retreat was so satisfying. The Reiki class and attunements were directed toward the two initiates who came forth to be initiated, but the everyone participated in the discussion of Reiki, each sharing the wisdom of their experience.   Soon after the attunement we launched into some very powerful Reiki and Healing Circles.  We experienced demonstrations and discussions on sound healing, chakra balancing and chakra healing. Our beautiful retreat house was filled with ascended energy, Reiki guides, healing spirits, fun spirits, tricksters.   We had discussions on the chakras and balancing the chakras.  Here is what some of the participants

Spiritual Geeks

I recently created a group called the Spiritual Geeks.  (Facebook group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/841879019163090/) This is a perfect extension of my world view.  Since my orientation is shamanic, there are many perceptions of the reality we call reality.  In the Spiritual Geeks we gather and share our unique brand of spirituality.  We seek similarity.  We geek-out spiritually in many ways.  We learn what everybody else has to teach us, which is a lot.  We all have so much to learn from one another.  I am the absolute authority of my brand of spirituality.  It is unique to me, because I have a

The Stories we Tell

Recently I attended a reunion of folks who were in the Order with me in the 70’s to early 80’s.  It was interesting to get with these folks again and to learn how they have responded to the Call, since the Order’s demise.  The Order was an esoteric teaching and service community.  It was a mystery school that was vowed to spread the Light and assist the Earth in coming into Illumination.  We embraced Jesus as our Master Teacher, but also acknowledged the other ascended masters and Avatars.  We studied the Kabbala, Tarot, Astrology and the major world religions.  One

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Before the advent of modern medicine, our means of healing came from the natural world.  Many plants provide powerful medicinal properties.  Essential oils are the concentrated extracts from plants.  They are 50 to 70 times more powerful than herbs.  Many are finding essential oils are as effective as synthetic drugs in treating things like allergies, arthritis, pain, and GI disturbances, without the side-effects of their synthetic counterparts.  The oils are the part of the plants that protect the plants from bacteria and fungus, deter insects and slow decay.  The oils are imbued with these anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant properties and we

The Subconscious – The Pathway to Freedom

Most of the time we are not aware of what is going on in our subconscious. It is SUB conscious. Sometimes we are able to bring things forward from the subconscious – make them conscious. We use tarot cards, oracle cards, pendulums and kinesiology to help us get in touch. Hypnotherapy and art-therapy are other ways to tap into the subconscious and bring forth information that is helpful in our journey. Why should we be curious about what resides in the subconscious? The subconscious mind is a composite of everything one sees, hears and any information the mind collects that

Divine Co-creation

The retreat with the Divine was a unique and full cooperative retreat.  Everyone who came had gifts to share and contributions to make. Jen Jungenberg spoke about trees, plants and herbs and their uses for meditation and healing. She also did floramancy-divination with flowers. It was very interesting to explore the psychological/spiritual connections that draw us to different flowers and what those flowers say about us. We learned that Jen is creating floral incense and relaxing bath scents, made with flowers and she shared some of these beautiful scents with us.  Also, Jen sang a song for us before she left

Reiki Inspires

After you have been attuned to Reiki, it is not unusual to notice dramatic results right away.  With regular use, Reiki shifts the energy of your life.  You can watch it shift and as you watch it, it will shift faster.  Reiki, itself will inspire you to additional avenues of “good.”   Better feeling thoughts will occur to you.  You will notice more opportunities to use Reiki to help others and yourself.  I remember that before I started using Reiki, my hands were sore often.  When I was attuned to Reiki, I gave my hands Reiki every night as I

Re-INSPIRED by Reiki

The Path of Reiki   I recently have been re-INSPIRED about Reiki.  You know, I have done it for a long time and have gotten used to seeing the gentle changes that take place when people receive regular Reiki.  Recently, I attuned two people to Master Level whom I had previously attuned to Reiki I and II.  They were full of stories about how Reiki had changed THEIR life, not just the lives of those they worked on.  And I was inspired to sit back and remember my life before Reiki.  I have to state here that the significant gift
