COMMUNITY

Somewhere, there are people

to whom we can speak with passion

without having the words catch in our throats.

Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us,

eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate

 with us

whenever we come into our own power.

Community means strength that joins us our strength

to do the work that needs to be done.

Arms to hold us when we falter.

A circle of healing.  A circle of friends.

Someplace where

we can be free.

The Cold and Flu Season Essential Oil Warriors

November 10th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in OILS

TheivesessentialoilImmuPoweressentialoilI like to diffuse ImmuPower Essential Oil in the morning and again in the evening and apply Thieves Essential Oil to the feet.  The next day, I alternate diffuse Thieves in the morning and evening, and apply ImmuPower to the throat, thymus (include thymus tapping), and feet.  During the cold and flu season, I truly appreciate these two ‘Essential Oil Warriors.’  ImmuPower blend helps raise the frequency of the immune system which helps overcome the flu, colds, respiratory problems, infections, etc.  Thieves has highly anti-viral, antiseptic properties of the single oils contained in this blend which helps protect the body from the onset of flu, colds, etc.

grounded woman with rootsAre you grounded?  At times we all experience stress, emotional irritability, not feeling connected, a little spaced out, and an inability to focus.  This is when we are definitely not grounded.  Here is a quick grounding technique that can be done in a few moments:

Stand up, give your body a doggy shake to loosen up.  Then start bouncing up and down on the balls of your feet for about 20 seconds.  Relax, close your eyes, if you choose, and feel the earth energy entering into your feet.  Doing this as often as needed during the day is very beneficial and you will start to realize your increased awareness of the grounding energyREMEMBER be open.  This an excellent exercise to do as soon as you hop out of bed.  It is energizing.  Then before you drop into bed at night, a few up and down bounces will help you sleep.

More grounding tips tomorrow!

 

 

Balanced View of Healing

November 10th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

Jeanne Acherberg, in her book Women as Healer, reminds us of the following concepts, which contribute toward a balanced view of healing:

balancedgreenstonesHealing is a lifelong journey toward wholeness.

Healing is remembering what has been forgotten about connection, and unity and interdependence among all things living and nonliving.

Healing is embracing what is most feared.

Healing is opening what has been closed, softening what has hardened into obstruction.

Healing is entering into the transcendent, timeless moment when one experiences the divine.

Healing is creativity and passion and love.

Healing is seeking and expressing self in its fullness.

Healing is learning to trust life.

When we are underdeveloped in any of these concepts, we find a closed door to our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Hay in her book “Heal Your Body” writes the following affirmation for those having problems with hips.  she indicates the probable cause for hip problems is “Fear of going forward in major decisions.  Nothing to move forward to.”  She states the following new thought pattern (affirmation):  “I AM IN PERFECT BALANCE.  I MOVE FORWARD IN LIFE WITH EASE AND WITH JOY AT EVERY AGE.”

Bloodstone – Immune Stimulator

November 10th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

BloodstonegemBloodstone is also referred to as ‘Heliptrope’. It is a green jasper with red spots.  It fortifies the lymph and immune reaction.  To help stimulate the immune system,  place Bloodstone over the thymus (higher heart chakra), which is located in center of chest underneath the breastbone.  Leave the Bloodstone in place for 20-30 minutes.  One can also wear Bloodstone continuously over the higher heart chakra for the immune system.
