I found the following Simple Chakra Clearing Meditation on Pinterest.  Today is an air travel day for me.  In the Anchorage Airport, I found a quiet spot and practiced Meg Hill’s meditation.  It truly is simple and effective.  While still in this peaceful area of the airport, looking out at the most beautiful sunny morning,  I decided to share this meditation with my blog readers. Happy meditating and have a joyful day.

Citrine Healing Grid Benefits

March 29th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

Citrine Healing Grid BenefitsThe Citrine Healing Grid uses Citrine and Clear Quartz to increase energy levels, clear the mind, improve communication skills, and adaptability.  It is a valuable net for those who are studying. However, it may be uncomfortable for you, if you do not need extra energy this net can provide.

You will need:  A yellow or white cloth to lie on, 3 citrine tumbled stones, 2 clear quartz tumbled stones, and 1 clear quartz point.

Citrine Grid Layout:  Place the clear quartz point on the forehead with the point towards the top of your head. Tape the clear quartz tumble stones to the top of the feet between the tendons of the third and second toes. Place one citrine just above the navel on the solar plexus and hold the other two citrines in the hands.

If your citrine stones have a natural point at one end point the one above the navel downwards and the ones in the hands away from the body.

When you first use this healing layout relax in this position for around 5 minutes, practice regularly.

 This layout is from Sue and Simon Lilly’s book Healing with Crystals and Chakra Energies.

Heart Help - Mudra Apan Vayu

I was thrilled to find the following mudra to teach my ailing 86 year old mother. She suffers from severe angina pain. The Apan Vayu Mudra is a very powerful and in ancient India was considered to be a life saver for anyone having a heart attack.

Practice Apan Vayu Mudra:

1. (Mudra Position) The tip of the middle finger and ring finger touches the tip of the thumb, while the index finger touches the base of thumb and the little finger is stretched out (see picture above).  2. Rest in a comfortable posture (can be done lying in bed).  3.Breathe gently through the nostrils. 4. Hold this Mudra for a 10-15 minutes.

Apan Vayu Mudra triggers the following synchronized energy of the five elements: 

Heart Help - Mudra Apan Vayu

1.  With the folding of index finger, the air element is reduced which immediately relieves the pain in the heart. While touching the tips of thumb, middle finger and ring finger, fire (heat), space and earth elements are increased.

2.  The impurity in the blood is removed with the increase of heat element.

3.  The increased space element helps in the supply of more oxygen to arteries of the heart.

4.  Increased earth element helps strengthens the muscles of the heart.

Heart patients and blood pressure patients can practice the mudra at least 3 times a day to see best results.






Chakra Balancing Chart

Chakra Balancing Chart

The following use of colors, crystals, and essential oils, are powerful tools for bringing balance to our energy centers— the chakras.

Color Energy:  You will find yourself drawn to one color more than others.  The energy vibration of that color is what you need, at this moment, in order to improve and balance your emotional state. The needed color can be introduced through clothing worn, viewing the color in art, and also with gemstones.

Balancing Chakras with gemstones:  This is the most relaxing way to balance all the chakras at the same time with gemstones.  Find time to take a quiet 20 minute break either laying down on a mat or bed.  On each of the chakras, place their recommended gemstone (see chart above).  The Crown Chakra gemstone rests on the mat just above the head and the Base or Root Chakra gemstone rests on the mat between the legs close to your body.

Essential Oils for Individual Chakra Balancing:  Place a drop of undiluted oil into the palm of one of your hands.  Then lightly rub your palms together clockwise, which potentizes the oil with your body’s frequencies.  Finally, cup your hands over your nose taking a small breath of the oil and wait a minute to see how you respond. If you feel as if you need more, take up to three more deep breaths.

Self-Help To Relieve Shoulder Pain

The Shoulder reflex points are between the pinky and fourth toes to the outside of the ball area of the feet.  Massaging these areas relieve shoulder pain, stiffness, fatigue, and tension.

Treatment: 1. Begin massaging the area beneath the pinky toe with the heel of your working hand while the other hand supports the foot as shown in this illustration.self-help to ease shoulder pain

2. Next you can knead this area with harder pressure using the knuckles of the working hand.


3. Finish by rubbing an ARC from the toe to the outside of the ball of the foot with your thumb.  If only one shoulder requires attention, massage the foot that is on the same side of the body as the affected shoulder.

4. The shoulder reflex points on the hands correspond in the same position as the feet. You can massage these reflex points with the thumb for shoulder pain relief throughout the day. Also to enhance massage results, author Skye Alexander of the Reflexology Card Deck recommends using a massage oil or lotion that contains essential oil of sandalwood or frankincense to ease tension.


Animal Spirit Guide - Crane

Cranes have long been associated with royalty, balance, grace, and longevity. The crane is a prehistoric animal and looks like one, yet is also very beautiful and graceful.Spirit Animal Guide - Crane

A Crane totem entering your life could signal recovery of what was lost to you.

Crane spirit helps us to speak our truth as we live with courage and integrity. The lesson is to wait in complete balance, as we remain ever focused on our path of destiny. The key is to soar as ONE with the wind regardless of the journey’s way.

An encounter with Crane in Dreamtime is a powerful sign of love, happiness, and good will among family and friends.

Call on Crane when everything feels off kilter and you want to restore order and balance to your life.

Nature's Healing Gift 1st Day Of Spring

I was out for my morning walk on the first day of Spring.  It was 36 degrees and the roof tops were white with frost. The moon hadn’t set in the west and the sun was coming up in the east shining through the trees.  As I continued on my walk, the crows did not meet me that morning.  It was the robins that joined me, which brought the following message of energized change: Spring time is here, ENJOY!

What the Robin Told

The wind told the grasses,

And the grasses

told the trees.

The trees told the bushes,

And the bushes

told the bees.

The bees told the robin,

And the robin

  sang out clear:

Wake up!

Wake up!

Spring is here!

Asthma Relief with Foot Reflexology

I thought my inquiry from a snowbird client wanting some healing techniques for asthma would be an excellent choice for today’s blog.  The following treatment I am recommending can be found in Ann Gillander’s book The Joy Of Reflexology:

1. First step works on the ball of both feet including the area from the second to the pinky toes.  Support the right foot with your left hand, and with the right thumb work up the ball area starting at the diaphragm line to where the toes join the foot. (See picture above).  Remember to use the pad of the thumb, select a comfortable pressure, and the movement is always like a forward thumb walk never circular or sliding.  Repeat on the bottom of the left foot.

Asthma Relief with Foot Reflexology

2.  Second step on the right foot (dorsal or top side), make a fist with the hand supporting and press into the bottom of the foot.  Using the index finger of the other hand work down the grooves in the foot starting from the toes (see example above).  Finish on the left foot.  The author writes that this treatment helps relieve the anxiety and strain associated with asthma.  Also it is great to know that children seem to respond especially well to this reflexology treatment.

HINT:  You can enhance this treatment by using a lotion that contains essential oil of mint, eucalyptus, or camphor to relieve congestion.
