1.  You are being reminded that there is more than one way of looking at things.  It is better to work toward a compromise than staying stuck in a right-versus-wrong standoff.

2.  Be willing to question your considered reality and any illusions you may have subscribed to, and in so doing, you will expand your consciousness.

3.  You are about to discover some useful knowledge that has been hidden.  Knowledge that will come to you without seeking, so simply be open to receiving.

Tuesday's Healing Word Purpose-ful-ness
It is difficult to look at Tuesday’s Word - Purpose without also including Purposeful and Purposefulness.  Having a definite Purpose is an intended aim or desired goal. The definition of Purposeful is having a use, or showing determination to achieve a specific aim.  Purposefulness is being aware that each of us is here for a reason.
Tuesday's Healing Word Purpose-ful-nes
“The purpose of life is not to be happy.
It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate,
to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tuesday's Healing Word Purpose-ful-ness
“A life of meaning and value

Purposeful action.”

Tuesday's Healing Word Purpose-ful-ness

Hopefully you are making it your purpose,
because it is purposeful, and purposefulness is healing!

Place your index finger (three finger widths) above the wrist on Triple Heater 5, located in the hollow between the bones. Place the thumb (three finger widths) above the wrist crease on Pericardium 6, located in the depression between the tendons (see illustration).

Creating Goddess Affirmations

November 18th, 2015 | Posted by Velda in AFFIRMATIONS | GODDESS WISDOM

Create Goddess Affirmations

Studying Goddess Mythology is rather new for me.  However, I have found that many women are becoming more drawn to the feminine energies surrounding many of the world’s Sacred Goddess Centers.  I certainly felt the Earth’s or Goddess’s feminine energy at the Minoan Ruins.  Today lets focus on how to feel and believe in our Goddess within.  In the book, Goddess Bless! Divine Affirmations, Prayers, and Blessings, author Sirona Knight guides the readers on how to create affirmations to contact the Goddess you need, when you need her.

The author recommends a simple formula for creating Goddess affirmations.  You can customize your affirmations to fit your personal situations or specific issues.  She suggests begin with a basic phrase consisting of one or two lines.  Keeping it short and to the point, makes it easier to remember for repetition.

Creating Goddess Affirmations

Following is a basic affirmation suggested for healing by author Sirona Knight:

Today and every day, I feel the healing power of

the Goddess flowing through me.

Create Goddess Withing Affirmations

After you have a basic affirmation to work from, you can then begin to tailor it to fit other situations and needs.  If you are needing wisdom, you can change the affirmation like the following:

Today and every day, I feel the divine wisdom of

the Goddess filling my body, mind, and spirit.

Create Goddess Withing Affirmations

To give the affirmation more power, you can call upon a particular Goddess to help give you the wisdom you need.  Keep repeating the lines until you begin to feel the power of that Goddess.   Imagine in your mind’s eye the great Celtic Goddess Anu, whose main power was her motherly wisdom, as you repeat the following affirmations:

Today and every day, I feel the divine wisdom of

the Great Mother Goddess Anu filling my body,

mind, and spirit.  She is helping me to

make the best choices possible.

Create Goddess Withing Affirmations

You can also add your name to personalize the affirmation even more, for example:

Today and every day, I, (your name), feel the divine

wisdom of the Great Mother Goddess Anu filling

my body, mind, and spirit, and helping me to

make the best choices possible.

Create Goddess Withing Affirmations

To make your affirmations more successful, consider setting up a sacred space for doing them.  Pick a place that is out of the way and private.  It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate, but where you feel comfortable.  It is nice to place an image of a Goddess or something that represents her such as a favorite rock, flowers, or a special photo.  Enjoy creating your own affirmations and Awakening your Goddess Within.

Strengthen The Net of Light NOW!

November 15th, 2015 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING
                                   This entire message was sent November 13th from Sharon McErlane, author of  
                                                            ’A Call To Power:  The Grandmothers Speak’. 
Net of Light

Strengthen the Net of Light NOW!

–the Great Council of the Grandmothers

Please share this information. Ask others to help.
There are great rips and tears in the Net of Light in the Middle East.The Net has also become weakened in the Northern Hemisphere–especially Europe and Russia. Terrorism, violence, and evil acts abound wherever the template of light and love that holds the planet has been weakened. The Net of Light itself is perfect but because it interfaces with humanity it can be torn by the acts of man. This has now happened, and what humans have destroyed, humans must repair. This is the law. Therefore, we are asking you to step up. Strengthen the Net of Light that holds your planet. Many of you have been working in this way for a long time and you are much needed now.
“Some call it Net of Light, some Cosmic Web, Grid of Light, Sacred Template, Indra’s Net, and other names, but it is the same construct. This is the Net of Light that will hold your planet steady during the times of change that are upon you. Go forward now and find your place on this radiant construct and then hold, hold, hold light steady for yourselves and everything that lives.
“You can pray for all the people who are suffering in your world but you will do more good if you will broadcast light directly into the Net of Light. And think especially of doing this for the Middle East. This influx of light will strengthen the Net, enabling it to uplift everything.
“To begin, think of the Net of Light like a great fishing net that covers the Earth from above and penetrates through all the land, air, and waters of your planet. Somewhere on that radiant Net is a place that will feel right for you. Step forward and take this place and, once you have, let your heart pour love and light into the Net which in turn will pour love and light back into your heart. The more light that you send throughout the strands of the Net, the more will come back to you. That too is the law.
“The Net of Light is lit by the radiance of the heart. It is your own heart that propels light throughout the gridlines of the Net, supporting this planet. Let your heart connect with the Net of Light and observe as love and light pour fourth throughout the Net and throughout your own body. Everything is blessed by the touch of the Net of Light and as you focus the power of this radiance into the Middle East, it will begin to mend the tears there. This is blessing work. There is nothing more valuable you can do.
“As you work with the Net of Light you become a blessing and you are blessed. By thinking of the Net of Light you automatically link yourself with the sacred and holy places on your planet, with the sacred beings who support life on Earth, and with all those of pure heart who seek the greatest good for all. Each time you think of the Net of Light and let light flow from your heart, you do untold good. You become a walking blessing upon the earth.”
The Grandmothers say:
“This is the Net of Light that will hold the earth during the times of change that are upon you. You are part of this Net. Take your glorious place”

Stress & Trauma Crystal Grid

We all probably have experienced a shock, accident or a loss, which leaves us feeling profoundly shaken and insecure.  This crystal healing grid helps to release stress and prevents the shock from continuing to control emotions, mental replays and tense muscles.

1.  You will need 8 small Clear Quartz Crystals with one end pointed, 1 Rose Quartz, and 1 Tiger’s Eye.  Find a quiet place to lie down.

2.  Put Rose Quartz on the Heart Chakra (center of breasts)  surrounded with 4 Clear Quartz Crystals placed diagonally with the points facing outward.

3.  Next place the Tiger’s Eye on The Sacral Chakra (below the navel) surrounded with 4 Clear Quartz Crystals also placed diagonally but with the points facing inward.

4.  The stones at the heart releases emotional tension. The stones on the abdomen balance the lower chakras, which brings stability and grounded energy needed.  Continue regular use of this layout until the stress or trauma signs disappear.

Alternative Energetic Cord Releasing

November 6th, 2015 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

cords energetic 1-2

Energetic cords are similar to having a fiber optic cord between ourselves and others. Through these cords or connections, energetic information can be shared, or energy can be drawn by one person or the other. Healthy cords share nurturing information and energy. Unhealthy cords can be a huge drain or a means of control and often outlive their usefulness.  We have a choice about continuing to stay attached by unhealthy cords.   When we give power away to other people because our relationship with self is dysfunctional, we actually allow cords of energy to tie us to those people. You can cut the cords, but unless you resolve the underlying reason why your corded in the first place, the unhealthy cord will come back.

cord severing 2-2

Following are steps to a gentle alternative way of releasing an unhealthy cord:

1.  Start with stating the name of the person attached to the energetic cord and ask to be forgiven for all the wrong doings and hurt that you may have committed towards this person knowingly and unknowingly.  Then state that you forgive this person for all the wrong doings and hurt that they have committed towards you knowingly and unknowingly.
2.  Imagine a circle made from a fine woven silk cord that is in a beautiful natural setting.   Visualize sitting in the center of the circle and feeling protected.  You are being surrounded with a high frequency pure light.

3.  Now visualize the person you want to release sitting in another circle made of cord.  Look at this person from your circle and wave good bye!  You are gently and peacefully allowing this person their space while affirming your own.  Imagine that instead of cutting the cord, it remains whole, disentangled and detached.  Once more with love and compassion, say good bye.cord release 2-2

 The cord is released, with gratitude, move on with your life!



Cheerfulness 2-3

Cheerfulness is seeing the bright side and looking for the good in whatever happens.  It is maintaining a positive attitude of optimism and confidence.  Even when life is challenging, we make the best of it, and trust all will be well.   A cheerful smile can light up everyone’s day.  It nurtures happiness.

happy face 1-3

“Cheerfulness, it would appear,
is a matter which depends fully as much on the state
of things within,
as on the state of things without and around us.”
~ Charlotte Brontë

Who Am I

November 1st, 2015 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN | RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

Who Am I

am I -2-2-3

I am a woman that is black and beautiful inside and out, filled with joy and pride.

I am a woman as graceful as a butterfly; a woman that can be seen and  heard.

I am a woman that is cunning, a woman of skill and knowledge.

Who Am I

am I -3-3

I am a woman with strength, to knock down any boundaries keeping me from my journeys of life.

I am a woman that dreams to have a life of an angel with never ending love and happiness.

I am a woman that’s your lover and friend, and keeps you feeling loved and secure.

Who Am I am lady 4-2

I am a woman of respect and admiration; respecting and admiring mind, body and soul.

I am a woman with a passionate kiss and lips as soft as fresh rose petals.

I am a woman, leaving  you wanting and wishing for more.

Who Am I

am lady 2-2

I am a woman with a charm that’s as radiant as the sunshine.

I am a woman full of laughter, giggles and grins, which is the medicine of the soul.

I am a woman with my own identity, look into my eyes and you’ll see who I am.
