Preseli Bluestone Reclaiming Lost Energy

Preseli Bluestone is the same stone that the ancient stone monoliths at Stonehenge are made from. This is a powerful variety of stone that has a number of excellent attributes that Sue Lilly and Simon Lilly share in their book Preseli Bluestone: Medicine Stone of the Ancestors.

Preseli Bluestone Reclaiming Lost EnergyHealing qualities of Preseli Bluestone can derive from physical appearances and color.  Black elements suggest the ability to ground energy.  Black encourages introversion and quiet contemplation.  Blue has a similar sedating and quieting effect on the body and mind.  Blue is also associated with the communicating senses.  Greens links to the processes of the natural world, the energy of relationship,  and the awareness of ‘self’.

Where there is visible white inclusions, these become a focus of the mind.  White clarifies, reveals, initiates and defines.  The presence of metallic silver and red introduces a quality of uncovering and revealing.  Any metallic surface brings a sense of protection and grounded strength.

Technique:  Reclaiming Lost Energy – 5 Preseli Bluestone Reclaiming Lost Energy

1.  Make sure you are not going to be disturbed.

2. This layout helps to energize and organize the auric field, disentangling blocks and energies that have become stuck in the aura.  It helps to repair the deep layers of the energy bodies.

3.  Eight Preseli Bluestones are placed to create two rectangles.  The inner rectangle is level with the eyes.  The outer rectangle is above the Crown and well below the feet.

4.  Place stones in position.  Five minutes is a good length of time for the first experience.   If any time you feel uncomfortable, move out of position.  Let the feeling subside and then resume if you wish.

5.  At the end of the session, take plenty of time to return to normal activity, drink plenty of water and remember to cleanse your stones.

Much TO DO About Root Chakra

April 27th, 2015 | Posted by Velda in AFFIRMATIONS | CHAKRAS

Much To Do About The Root Chakra

I am feeling a little nostalgic and decided to revisit  bwb’s first Root Chakra entry published Dec. 1, 2012.  There has been only a few updates including adding the Root Chakra Affirmations. 

The Root/Base Chakra is the first chakra and is located at the base of the spine (perineum).  This chakra is concerned with basic survival, physical needs, the skeletal structure, teeth, large intestine, kidneys, and blood.  It is the root of your being and establishes the deepest connections with the physical body, the environment, and with the Earth. Your fight and flight response is initiated from this chakra. Its color-red; element-Earth energy; and Rights-To Have.  The following vibrate to the Root Chakra.   GEMSTONES: Ruby, Red Jasper, Garnet, Hematite, Bloodstone & Smokey Quartz. ESSENTIAL OILS:  Clary Sage, Patchouli & Cedarwood. FLOWER REMEDIES:  Red Chestnut, Cherry Plum & Aspen.

 

If the Root Chakra is insufficiently open, one may feel spaced out and un-grounded.  An un-balanced or blocked chakra could mean lack of confidence, fear, of low self-esteem.  When your Root Chakra is balanced,  you feel grounded, independent, and stable.  A healthy Root Chakra will promote core feelings of trust, safety and protection.  To BALANCE A Root Chakra you may use any of the gemstones, essential oils and flower remedies mentioned above.  Here are a few more suggestions:  Wear something red or burn a red candle, play drum music for the grounding vibration.  Walk around outdoors preferably near trees. Add Root Chakra healing foods such as root vegetables, mushrooms, red colored foods, and animal protein (if you are not vegan or vegetarian).

 

Benefits of Daily Scalp Massage

First off I want to shout a warm hello and thanks to a reader in South Dakota for extending her appreciation of bwb and asking some great questions that are responsible for today’s blog.   She has been giving herself scalp massages, where she probably benefits from acupressure, reflexology, and shiatsu points that release pain and emotional blockages from other parts of the body.

The following simple scalp massage treatments are in response to the above mentioned e-mail (thanks again South Dakota):

Benefits of Daily Scalp MassageMassaging the Paihui point (GV20): The Paihui is the most sensitive and essential area in your scalp. A short 5 minute massage of this area everyday will help in the growth of hair. Place all your fingers of the right hand on the Paihui. Gently push your fingers in the vertical direction (from your forehead to the back of your scalp) massage should be soft and soothing. You will see results in a short time.Benefits of Daily Scalp Massage

 

Scalp Massage Can Lower Stress Levels Responsible for Hair Loss:

Benefits of Daily Scalp MassageStress is a well-known cause for temporary hair loss. Scalp massage can help combat the hair loss by reducing the physical effects of stress on the body. It does so by:

Benefits of Daily Scalp Massage

Promoting feelings of deep relaxation in the body.

Relieving muscle tension.

Improving lymphatic drainage.

Improving venous circulation.

Stimulating nerve pathways.

Stimulating the release of the body’s natural feel-good hormones – Benefits of Daily Scalp Massageendorphins.

When massaging the scalp and you feel bumps that are sore, these are probably calcium deposits (salts that harden under the skin).   You can massage these areas gently.  They generally  are not harmful, but can be painful.  I recommend you check out the different natural remedies that can be used to help treat this condition.

 

 

 

Divine Feminine Power

Welcome to my new category Divine Feminine Power. I am going through another awakening period and it focuses on matriarchal vs patriarchal power.  Why can’t it be equal?  Most of my healing work is about balancing the masculine and feminine energy.  However, there is so much more that we as women need to do for ourselves.  From the earliest moments of life, most of us are told stories of patriarchal greatness. Subconsciously, we adopt the philosophy that the matriarchal role is of less importance and femininity is ultimately inferior. This kind of thinking binds us. It diminishes our self worth. It shackles our minds and our spirits. I invite you to release these debilitating thought patterns and beliefs and embrace ones that empower women as mothers, daughters, lovers, healers, teachers, and creators.

Divine Feminine Power

The following five healing affirmations, by Dr. Anjana Love Dixon D.DIV, helps to reflect on the wild woman that lies dormant by retrieving and unleashing your Divine Feminine Power:

  1. My body is a miracle and giving birth is a blessing. The birthing process, no matter how it plays out for me, is a testament of my strength. It is a beautiful experience that ensures the survival of our species or creative works.
  2. I am free to love fearlessly and ferociously. I am an emotional and sexual being with the natural desire to share my affection or my love for my passion.
  3. My monthly flow is a blessing. As a younger woman, I bleed from my sacred space and accept that this is a physically and spiritually cleansing process and welcome it each month.  As an older woman through with menses, I reflect upon my life and listen to my intuition monthly.
  4. My body is my own and I love it unconditionally. Every wrinkle, scar, stretch mark, and dimple on my body tells a story. Like with any story, there are parts that harbor sadness or pain, but I embrace these parts of myself as well. I understand that I write my own stories and can change them as I feel the need.
  5. I am Divine by nature. I go inward to connect with ancient wisdom for the modern woman.  I choose to honor myself as a powerful matriarchal being.

Tracing Triple Warmer Is CalmingIn Donna Eden’s book, Energy Medicine, she teaches her method of sedating the Triple Warmer by running the meridian energy backwards.  This helps relax and reduce stress.  To sedate the Triple Warmer follow the illustration:

1.  Use fingers of your opposite hand to touch the outside edge of your eyebrow (furthest from your nose); trace with your fingers back over and around the ear; down the back of your neck, across the back of your shoulder; down the outside of your arm to the back of your hand; and finish by touching the fourth ‘ring’ finger at the base of the nail.

2. Repeat at least three times on each side of your body.  Continue tracing the Triple Warmer backwards as needed to help you relax and relieve stress.

 

 

 Tuesday's Healing Word Focus

Definition of Focus:  A center of interest or activity; close or narrow attention; concentration.  This is what Jack Canfield, Co-Author of Chicken Soup For The Soul Series, says about positive focus: “Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals, rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them”.

Tuesday's Healing Word Focus

Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Buddist Monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist writes: “It’s very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems”

Tuesday's Healing Word Focus

Focus on the journey,

not the destination.

Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.

Poem: “The Mirror”

April 6th, 2015 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN

Poem: "The Mirror"“The Mirror”

I Looked At The Mirror
Mirror, Looked Back At Me
I Asked The Mirror
What Do You See?
The Mirror Smiled
“Same As You See”
I Touched The Mirror
The Mirror, Touched Me
Pressing To Break Thru
Glass Vanity
For Tho’ Eye To Eye
Sometimes I See
Mirror’s Right
Is Left To Me
And My Right Side … Made Mirror Left
I Got Perplexed At Imagery
And I Turned Away From Mirror
And Mirror Turned From Me
Our Backs To Each Other
Exposed Rigidly
But, Both Turned Back To Face
And Touch Same Place, And Be
Contained and ContentPoem: The Mirror
In Each Other’s Space Respectfully
We Shattered The Barrier
Between Mirror and Me
Back To Reflecting Our World
And The Same Things, We See …
Oh … Mirror, Mirror …
Reflecting You … Seeing Me …
