tuesday's healing words new beginnings
“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.” 
― Arnold Bennett, 1867-1931
tuesday's healing words new beginings
Today I embrace my NEW BEGINNINGS.
I am responsible for all of my experiences.
I welcome change.  Change is full of opportunities for me.
Warmly, Velda.


big toes give new pain relieve

Did you ever think that the pain in your neck could be relieved by massaging the neck reflex point on your big toes?  Author Sky Alexander’s Reflexology Card Deck shows the following neck treatment for stiff neck, neck pain, tension, or tightness in the throat:

big toes give neck pain reliefLocation: Inside base of big toe, near where it joins the foot in the bend and next to the second toe.  This reflex point corresponds to the neck and throat.

Treatment: 1. Gently pull and manipulate one of your big toes.  Bend several times slowly.

2. Massage the lower joint with your thumb.  At the base of the big toe, walk your thumb across the bend and then continue walking the thumb slowly up the outside of the toe using a firm pressure.

3. Press your index finger or knuckle against the reflex neck point spot (x shows location in photo) for about thirty seconds.

4. Repeat the process on the other foot.

To enhance results you can use a massage oil or lotion that contains essential oils of lavender or clary sage which will help reduce tension.

there are only promises and hopes,

but no plans.

Opening Your Third Eye Exercise

December 15th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in CHAKRAS

Opening Third Eye Exercise

I was thrilled when I discovered the following simple exercise found in Be Your Own Shaman by Deborah King for opening the third eye:

Opening Third Eye Exercise1.  Find a quiet place to relax comfortably in a chair and clear mind.

2. With the intention of opening your third eye, place your middle finger at the bridge of your nose and push up while breathing deeply.

3.  Imagine you are opening the eyelid that is located exactly between your eyebrows.  In your mind’s eye, see this chakra opening.

4.  Do this for about 60 seconds.  The goal of the exercise is not to gain information, but to practice opening the third eye chakra. As you develop this skill, you will begin to have experiences beyond the five normal senses.

5.  The key to increasing your abilities is to relax and let information come to you.  Don’t hesitate to use your imagination to picture what you hope to see while learning.

Chrysocolla-Teaching Stone & More

December 11th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in COLORS | GEMSTONES

Chrysocolla teaching stone & more

Chrysocolla is a teaching stone, that helps you communicate the right words when needed. It is a stone of peace, increased wisdom, and discretion. It promotes level headedness, encouraging clarity of thought and a neutral, cool attitude during turbulence. It can be used to decrease nervousness and irritability. It is empowering of the feminine energies and is associated with the solar plexus, heart, and brow chakras. It calms, cleanses, and re-energizes these Chakras.

Chrysocolla teaching stone & moreThe mix of greens and blues acts on the heart and throat chakras, reaching up to the deeper blue of the brow chakra and the related minor chakra at the base of the skull ( the medulla oblongata). This energy point clears blockages in the emotions and belief systems.

EXERCISE: Place a piece of Chrysocolla at the heart, throat, base of skull, or in the center of the forehead to create a rearrangement of energies that results in a clearer view of emotional issues.  Start by focusing on a problem or situation you wish to understand better.  Then relax and let the stone help bring resolutions to your conscious mind.(This exercise is explained in Healing with Crystals and Chakra Energies by Sue & Simon Lilly).




Abundance (n): a great or plentiful amount; fullness to overflowing.
