Tuesday's Words - Experiencing Synchronicity

What is your experience with Synchronicity?  Do you feel when two people start to call each other at the same time…it is only a coincidence?  I can remember when I was a young wife and mother and lived several thousand miles from my Mom, almost every time I started to call her, my phone would ring and it was her.  Sometimes it would be reversed and I dialed first.  At the time, I wasn’t aware that I was possibly experiencing synchronicity.   Synchronicity is a concept, first explained by psychiatrist Carl Jung, which believes that such events are “meaningful coincidences”.

Tuesday's Words - Experiencing Sychronicity

“People love mysterious things, and synchronicity is like magic happening to them,” says Carolyn North, author of Synchronicity: The Anatomy of Coincidence. “It gives us a sense of hope, a sense that something bigger is happening out there than what we can see, which is especially important in times like this when there are so many reasons for despair.”

“When you stop existing and you start truly living,

each moment of the day comes alive with the wonder and synchronicity.”

~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Tuesday's Words - Experiencing Synchronicity

“Synchronicity happens once you let the universe flow continuously through you,

not when you try to fit in its flow.”

Dry Brushing Lymphatic System

February 19th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

Dry Brush Lymphatic SystemThe most important benefits of the dry skin brush technique are the improvements to lymphatic function. It strengthens the immune system, stimulates hormone producing glands, and stimulates circulation.  It will help to rid your body of waste, toxins, viruses and bacteria. The end result is more energy, vitality, and less sickness. Dry Brushing The Lymphatic SystemThe entire body should be brushed, including your back, but skip the face and scalp. Use long sweeping strokes starting from the bottom of your feet upwards, and from the hands towards the shoulders, and on the torso in an upward direction to help drain the lymph back towards your heart. The lymphatic fluid only flows in one direction which is towards the heart, so it is important to dry brush in the same direction. 1.  Use light pressure in areas where the skin is thin and harder pressure on places like the soles of the feet. Don’t overdo it 2. Skin brushing can be done daily, preferably first thing in the morning. A thorough skin brushing takes about 10 minutes, but any time spent brushing prior to bathing will benefit the body. If you are feeling ill, increasing the treatments to twice a day can be beneficial. 3. Avoid sensitive areas like bruises and anywhere the skin is broken, such as areas of skin rash, wounds, cuts or infections 4. For added benefit: finish up with your regular shower and end with three hot and cold cycles. Turn on the water as hot as you can take it for several seconds, then as cold as you can handle it, then hot, then cold for three cycles.

Basic Directions for Brushing

1. You will use a light touch with this soft-natural bristled brush. The best time to brush is right before you get into the shower. 2.  Start at your feet and brush vigorously in circular motions. 3.  Continue brushing up your calves and thighs. 4. Next brush your hands and up your arms. 5. Proceed upward on your abdomen toward your heart using a circular counter-clockwise strokes 6.  You will brush downward on your neck, shoulders to the middle of back and upward from bottom of back to middle of back. Remember always brushing in the direction of the heart, so downward on areas above the heart and upward on areas below your heart. 7. Use light pressure on the breasts and any other sensitive areas. 8.  After Brushing follow with a hot shower.  Make sure you wash your brush with soap and water on a weekly basis.

Balancing Yin & Yang Energy

February 4th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

Balancing Ying & Yang Energy

How can we direct our everyday lifestyle choices to help balance the two energetic polarities referred to as Yin and Yang by Chinese Medicine?   Balancing our Yin (feminine energy) and Yang (masculine energy) establishes harmony within the mind, body, and spirit.

Balancing Yin & Yang EnergyYin is restorative energy.  It allows our mind-body to slow down, relax, and rest.  Yin encompasses  the elements that nourish our body. Concentration, determination to follow beliefs, and morals are also connected to Yin energy.  When we cut ourselves off from Yin energy with excessive Yang energy, we lose the ability to fluidly move and adapt to different circumstances, be receptive to others, and connect with our creative inspiration.  Instead of feeling peaceful and rested throughout our day, weBalancing Yin & Yang Energy become rigid, agitated and overextended.  There is a feeling of continually needing to keep moving and keep doing.

Yang is fiery energy.  It  is the action behind every process between your mind and body.  Yang  drives and motivates all your emotional, physical, and spiritual decisions.  This is the energy you feel when you are moving your energy out into the world, focused on completing a task, and associated with the practical, logical thinking of the left hemisphere of the brain, as well as an extroverted personality.  However, Yang deficiency caused by excessive Yin energy, is when we have a hard time creating the experiences that we want in the world.  We lose sight of our goals, lose inspiration to create the things that we want for ourselves, and can slip into depression.

The following suggestions are all beneficial ways to balance your Yin and Yang Energy:

Balancing Yin & Yang EnergyReach out to nature - take a walk and absorb the life energy of nature with every breath.

Nutrition – take time to eat health foods instead of grazing on empty junk.

Water – plenty of pure, clean water will help flush out toxins and rehydrate you. Most people underestimate their need for water.

Meditation – quality quiet time to get in touch with yourself.  Realize where you’ve become deficient and work to correct the deficiency.

Tai chi – movements balance body, mind, and spirit. Helps recognize disharmony before it gets out of hand.
