One of my personal heroines is Lillian Carter mother of former President Jimmy Carter.  At the age of 68, she applied to join the Peace Corps.  She received three months training and then was sent to India where she worked for 21 months with patients afflicted with leprosy.  It was Lillian Carter I would think about when I started back to school and could almost imagine this feisty lady saying to me, “we don’t have to be spring chickens to follow our new passions”.  I first read her book, Away From Home Letters to My Family, in 2008.  Her confidence and perseverance, along with all the challenges she faced, still motivates me.

She is truly my CONFIDENCE MUSE.

Obsidian Net for Cleansing/Transformation

August 11th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

Obsidian Net for Cleansing/Transformation

Sue and Simon Lilly share with us, the Obsidian Net in their book, Healing with Crystals and Chakra Energies.   This layout (shown above) allows the energies needed for cleansing and transformation to be gently integrated into the subtle bodies.  Repeating this procedure regularly will bring about significant changes.  You will need five obsidian stones and a red or black cloth to lie on.

1.  Place one obsidian above the top of the head; two level with the neck/shoulder area; and two at the feet.

2.  Lie within the net for three or four minutes.  Then take as much time as needed before resuming normal activity.  Remember to drink water to help integration.

Osidian Net for Cleansing/TransformationSue and Simon Lilly continues to share the following information on the black volcanic glass (obsidian) which is ideal for transforming energy patterns:

Obsidian is an effective grounding stone, but its most useful attribute is the ability to draw hidden imbalances to the surface and release them.  This needs to be done with care as most hidden things are buried because they are uncomfortable to face.  There are times when outdated patterns need to be broken to release the energy that is being wasted in supporting them.  Obsidian is ideal when a transformation is needed, bringing fiery energy from deep within the earth to purify and cleanse.

Connecting with Inner Child

Connecting with our inner child is one of my favorite topics and author Louise Hay shares the following in her book,  Experience Your Good Now! Learning to Use Affirmations.

Connecting with Inner Child

She writes “When you’re in a state of anxiety or fear that keeps you from functioning, you may have abandoned your inner child.  Think of some ways in which you can reconnect with your inner child.  What could you do for fun?  What could you do that is just for you?

She suggests you list 15 ways in which you could have fun with your inner child such as: 1. Reading good books,  2. Going to movies,  3. Gardening,  4. Journaling,  5. Enjoying a bubble bath.  Okay now think about child-like activities.  These could be even more beneficial such as: 1. Swinging,   2. Drawing with crayons,  3.  Climbing a tree,  4. Playing hide ‘n seek,  What would be on your list? 

Connecting with Inner Child

 “Once you’ve made your list,

try at least one activity each day. 

Let the healing begin! 

Look at all you’ve discovered!

Keep going—you can create such fun

for you and your inner child!”

~Louise L. Hay

Nature's Healing Gift - Cloud Gazing

OH, WOW!  That is about as descriptive as I can get when trying to express how amazing our Seattle sky was yesterday at day break, throughout the day, and then in the evening.  I can remember sometimes hearing as a child, “Its time to get your head out of the clouds”.  My hope for all was that you did have your eyes looking up and taking in the healing beauty.  Hopefully it brought back childhood memories of looking for animals or faces in the clouds.

Nature' Healing Gift - Cloud Gazing

“Aren’t the clouds beautiful? They look like big balls of cotton…

I could just lie here all day, and watch them drift by…

If you use your imagination, you can see lots of things in the cloud formations…

What do you think you see, Linus?”

“Well, those clouds up there look like the map of the British Honduras on the Caribbean…

That cloud up there looks a little like the profile of Thomas Eakins, the famous painter and sculptor…

And that group of clouds over there gives me the impression of the stoning of Stephen…

I can see the apostle Paul standing there to one side…”“Uh huh… That’s very good…

What do you see in the clouds, Charlie Brown?”

“Well, I was going to say I saw a ducky and a horsie, but I changed my mind!” 

~Charles M. Schulz, The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 5: 1959-1960

Nature's Healing Gift - Cloud Gazing

 Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm,

but to add color to my sunset sky.”

~Rabindranath Tagore,  Stray Birds   

Water Facet Energy Balancing Exercise

Would you have ever guessed that balancing energy can be as easy as standing at your kitchen sink? Author Alla Svirinskaya writes about healing with water in her book Energy Secrets The Ultimate Well-Being Plan. She explains how we can learn to use water for balancing energy which will both purify and boost our energy levels.  Her following exercise is also good for removing negative energy:

Water Exercise to Balance Energy

Water Faucet Energy BalancingBegin with a large glass of natural spring water.

Sit quietly while you slowly drink it.

Feel the water pouring down inside of you.

Feel the coolness and wetness of the water when it enters the stomach.

Imagine the feeling as it passes through your body.

Water Faucet Energy BalancingNow turn on the cold-water tap.

Stand in front of it with your back straight.

Stretch out your hands towards the cold-water stream.

Turn your palms so they are facing each other around the stream.

Ensure the water flows down in-between your palms without touching them.

Water Faucet Energy BalancingAll the time, perform this exercise very slowly.

The sense of coolness changes to rejuvenation.

Let this empowerment spread through your body.

With increased sense of vitality and purity you can end the exercise.

Thank the water for the balanced energy it has given you.
