EFT ‘Blessing’ Tapping

May 3rd, 2018 | Posted by Velda in ACUPRES.,MERIDIANS, REFLEX.

 

EFT 'Blessing' Tapping

Dr. Carol Look is an International workshop leader, author, intuitive energy healer, psychotherapist, EFT Master, and is featured as an energy therapy expert in leading documentaries on the Emotional Freedom Technique.   EFT or Tapping, is self-administered acupressure combined with cognitive and behavioral therapy techniques. It literally involves tapping acupressure points on your body with your fingertips while engaging in self-talk (often out loud). In this way you coach yourself through strong emotions when overwhelmed or stressed and send a signal to your body to calm down.

EFT 'Blessing' Tapping

Carol Look suggests doing at least three rounds of  EFT  ’Blessing’  Tapping  (illustrated above).  This is done with two or more fingertips.  Most people use their dominant hand. Tap approximately 5 times on each point.  Where there are two identical points on each side of the body,  you can choose to do only one side or both.   EFT “taps” into our energy system to help balance it and restore the flow to keep it running smoothly.

White Spirit Animal’s Message

May 1st, 2018 | Posted by Velda in RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

White Spirit Animal's Message

What does it mean if one has a vision visit from a White Spirit Animal?  This question lead me to finding an amazing article published in Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine,  Spring 2018 edition, by J. Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus, D.H.L.  She is an award-winning radio broadcaster, author, animal activist, and  well known telepath that communicates with animals.  She writes about having a waking day vision in 2013, when numerous White Spirit Animals arrived as a large group before her to ask that she tell their story.  Her book, White Spirit Animals Prophets of Change, is that story.

White Spirit Animal's Message

During four years of communicating with these White Spirit Animals using “shamanic dreaming”, each animal shared with the author what they thought important.  Here are examples;  1. Lion maintains that closing the ozone hole and closing the hole in our hearts keeps us from seeing the love we are connected to, as both are  essential. 2.  Bear urges us to heal with what grows from the earth, to bear children, to bear witness and to prepare for long periods of self-sufficiency.  3.  Elephant teaches us about compassionate action and resolution without violence.  4.  Wolf, guardian of the threshold,  protects the dead as well as the newborn, helping us to see life and death as a continuum.  5. Buffalo invigorates the soil and spirit. Sacred to the Lakota, Buffalo teaches prayer and peace.

White Spirit Animal's Message

How intriguing that the examples discussed above (Bear, Wolf, Elephant, Buffalo, Lion) and their species are all matriarchal societies.  Does this mean as a women, we may be called on?  White Spirit Animals implore us to “Improve life around us.”  They are attempting to awaken in us a great love and reverence for the EARTH we share with them, thus bringing us into telepathic rapport.  If you are visited by a Sacred White Spirit Animal (species from this planet or from other worlds), ask what is their story and how can you help!

ANCIENT RELEASE MESSAGE

April 1st, 2018 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN | RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

Ancient Walker 2--3

I release my parents from the feeling that they have already failed me.

I release my children from the need to bring pride to me;

that they may write their own ways according to their hearts,

that whisper all the time in their ears.

I release my partner from the obligation to complete myself.

I do not lack anything,

I learn with all beings all the time.

butterfly 1

I thank my grandparents and forefathers who have gathered

so that I can breathe life today.

I release them from past failures and unfulfilled desires,

aware that they have done their best to resolve their situations

within the consciousness they had at that moment.

butterfly 3

I honor you, I love you and I recognize you as innocent.

I am transparent before your eyes,

so they know that I do not hide or owe anything

other than being true to myself and to my very existence,

that walking with the wisdom of the heart,

I am aware that I fulfill my life project,

free from invisible and visible family loyalties that might disturb

my Peace and Happiness,  which are my only responsibilities.

butterfly 5

I renounce the role of savior,

of being one who unites or fulfills the expectations of others.

 Learning through, and only through, LOVE, I bless my essence,

my way of expressing,

even though somebody may not understand me.

butterfly 7

I understand myself, because I alone have lived and experienced my history;

because I know myself, I know who I am, what I feel, what I do and why I do it.

I respect and approve myself.

I honor the Divinity in me and in you.

We are free.

(This ancient blessing was created in the Nahuatl language, spoken in Mexico)

Empowered WomanThe Empowered Woman, she moves through the world
with a sense of confidence and grace.
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom.
Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation
and the life she leads is of her own creation.

She now understands what it means to live and let live.
How much to ask for herself and how much to give.
She has a strong, yet generous heart
and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart.
Like the mythical Phoenix,
she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence,
unfettered by the things that once posed such resistance.

Empowered Woman Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so clearly.
She hears the wind rustling through the trees;
beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly.
She feels the softness of her hands
and muses at the strength that they possess.
Her needs and desires she has learned to express.
She has tasted the bitter and savored the sweet fruits of life,
overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife. 

And the one thing she never understood,
she now knows to be true,
it all begins and ends with you.

Elk Animal Spirit Guide Revisited

February 24th, 2018 | Posted by Velda in AFFIRMATIONS | ANIMAL SPIRIT GUIDES

Elk Spirit Guide Revisited

It was important for me to revisit the Elk Animal Spirit Guide.  The last two months, due to flooding in our home, there has not been any posts written other than the monthly feature posts.  However, I have been responsible for finding professionals dealing with water damage, asbestos removal, trenching inside our basement floors, drywall/painting, and the replacement of flooring.  As most women know, sometimes we need to wear different hats.  When receiving the photo and lovely quote (shown above) from a dear friend, I re-read the Elk Spirit Guide.  Its message spoke to me and I chose to share it once again.  I also wanted to thank all the women in my life and  REMIND ALL TO BE IN AWARENESS FOR MESSAGES BEING SENT!

(First published on Sept. 3, 2015) Elk Animal Spirit Guide

Do we pick our animal guides and totems or do they pick us?  The wise ones tell us that we do not choose our spirit guides. They choose us and they decide when they will reveal themselves.  Many times they will appear in a dream, meditation, or a retrieval.  We can be completely surprised with what spirit guide might show up, but always their message or lesson speaks to us.  Recently while teaching a chakra animal totem workshop, two lovely women received the Elk.  At first both were a little confused, since neither were wilderness outdoor women, until they studied the following:

Elk Animal Spirit GuideElk Animal Spirit Guide (from Animal Spirit Guides by Steven D. Farmer, Ph.D.)

If ELK shows up, it means:

1.  Seek out same gender company & friendship.

2.  Eat vegetarian for a few days and note the difference in how you feel.  Pace yourself and eat energy foods so that you can maintain your stamina.

3.  Your inner child requires considerable nurturing and protection right now.

Call on ELK when:

1.  You feel someone has treated you disrespectfully.

2.  You’re involved in a project that requires considerable stamina and durability to see it through to completion.

3.  You need extra strength to handle an inordinate number of demands for your time and energy.

Elk Animal Spirit Guide

If ELK is your POWER ANIMAL:

1.  You’re fiercely independent and prefer to rely on your own strength rather than seek help from anyone.

2.  Even though you value your independence, you also value being part of a group.

3.  Your prefer the companionship of people of your same gender (whether straight or gay).

4.  You’re a very determined individual and can stick with any project to its completion.

Make February A Month of Gratitude

Make February A Month Of Gratitude

Revisiting February Feature Post 2013 is very appropriate and personal for me.  There are challenging situations, which could be either physical or emotional, that show up unexpectedly in our everyday lives.  It is during this time that “Being In Gratitude” is important.

I continue to refer to Angeles Arriens’ book, Living in Gratitude – A Journey That Will  Change Your Life.  One of the sentences from the February Chapter of this book states,  “The month of February offers daily opportunities to both say aloud what is in our hearts and communicate our love through our actions: our own unspoken verses of love.”  The following quotes are also found in the February Chapter:

Make February A Month Of Gratitude

Attend to the Heart

We are given a gift of 86,400 seconds today.

Have you used one today to say

“Thank you”?

WILLIAM A. WARD

A Gratitude - Building Exercise – from The Dali Lama

1.  Spend five minutes at the beginning of each day remembering that we all want the same thing; to be happy, to be loved, and to feel connected.

2.  Spend five minutes cherishing yourself and others. Let go of judgments.  Breathe in cherishing yourself,  and breathe out cherishing others.  If the faces of people you are having trouble with appear, cherish them as well.

3.  During the day, extend that attitude to everyone you meet,  with “I cherish myself and you too  (the store clerk, the client, a family member,  a fellow bus-rider).”

4.  Stay in the practice no matter what happens.   (Disarmingly simple, though not necessarily easy.)

Native American Code Of Ethics

January 1st, 2018 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN | RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

Native American Code Of Ethics

Ronit Baras shared the following in her Family Matters Blog:  “My work in personal development is in the service of all codes of ethics. I believe that regardless of which one we follow, if each and every one of us strives to live by them, to the best of our ability, we will create a better world.  Judaism is about 5,000 years old, Buddhism is about 2,500 years old, Christianity is about 2,000 years old, and Islam is about 1,500 years old. Meanwhile, the Native American Code of Ethics goes back 11,000 years. Fortunately, if you go deep into each of these belief systems, you will find them very similar”.Native American Code Of Ethics

Can you see the similarities between the North American Code of Ethics and your own beliefs?

  • Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.
  • Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy, and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.
  • Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
  • Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.
  • Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.
  • Respect all things that are placed upon this earth – whether it be people or plant.
  • Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.
  • Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.
  • All persons make mistakes and all mistakes can be forgiven.
  • Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

  • Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. They are part of your worldly family.Native American Code of Ethics
  • Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life’s lessons. When they are grown, give them space to grow.
  • Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.
  • Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the test of ones will within this universe.
  • Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual self, Emotional self, and Physical self – all need to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out the body to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.
  • Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.
  • Respect the privacy and personal space of others. Do not touch the personal property of others – especially sacred and religious objects. This is forbidden.
  • Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.
  • Respect others’ religious beliefs. Do not force your belief on others.
  • Share your good fortune with others.

Wasp Spirit Guide

December 16th, 2017 | Posted by Velda in ANIMAL SPIRIT GUIDES

Wasp Spirit GuideI would never thought to share about the Wasp Spirit Guide.  I am not frightened of wasps but  have a great respect for their aggressive temperament.  Bees on the other hand are gentle and only sting when protecting themselves.  Several days ago while curled up reading a book,  there was  a buzzing.  I thought possibly a piece of paper might be resting on the heat vent, but no, suddenly a wasp appeared.  Startled, I asked “where did you come from and why now?”  With a plastic container, I rescued him from possible demise at the hands of other members of the family and placed him in a bush near the house.  Perhaps some of the Wasp Spirit Guide messages covered by Steven D. Farmer, PH.D. in his book Animal Spirit Guides might speak to you as they did to me.

Wasp Spirit Guide

If WASP shows up, it means:

1.  Whatever task is before you, jump in and go for it with enthusiasm and determination.  Lead with heart not mind.

2.  The next few weeks, focus on fulfilling your responsibilities and personal obligations.

3.  Then break out of your routine and do something adventurous. Whatever you’ve dreamed of doing, put some plans into action to realize them.

Wasp Spirit Guide

Call on WASP when:

1.  When going through tangled emotions/mood swings and want to stay centered as possible while going through this time.

2.  You are in a rut and want to break out of it.  You feel the need for emotional and physical nourishment.

3.  You’ve been wishing and dreaming about something and now want to work toward its manifestation

Wasp Spirit Guide

If WASP is your POWER ANIMAL:

1.  You like  to do things your way and you alternate between being independent, private, and irritable to being sociable, personable and enjoying others.  This can make for some challenges in a relationship.

2.  As you ages, you’ll receive more recognition for being an innovator of new trends and ideas

3.  You are a hard worker and willing to do what it takes to get the job done.  Late summer and early fall are the seasons when you are the most active and dynamic.

 FYI, these hints remind us to be cautious around wasps.

NATURE’S HEALING GIFT…

December 1st, 2017 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN | RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

Nature Helps Us Unplug

I decided to share my connection to the overwhelming healing power and beauty of the sky, by integrating my personal sky photos with this ‘Thou Shalt Not Worry’  poem.  Hopefully it is a reminder that Nature can help us to unplug from daily challenges, especially during the holiday season.

Thou shalt not worry,

 for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

Thou shalt not be fearful,

for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them,

for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.

Nature Helps Us Unplug

Thou shalt face each problem as it comes,

for you can handle only one at a time anyway.

Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you,

for they make very poor bedfellows.

Thou shalt not borrow other people’s problems,

they can take better care of them than you can.

Natrure Helps Us Unplug

Thou shalt be a good listener,

for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own,

it’s very hard to learn something new when you’re talking.

Thou shalt not become bogged down by frustration,

for ninety percent of it is rooted in self-pity,

and it will only interfere with positive action.

Nature Helps Us Unplug

Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday,

for good or ill it is gone,

concentrate on what is happening in your life today.

Thou shalt count thy blessings,

never overlooking the small ones,

for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.

~ Elodie Armstrong

Tuesday’s Healing Word – Gratitude

November 21st, 2017 | Posted by Velda in TUESDAY'S HEALING WORD

Tuesday's Healing Word = Gratitude

Gratitude is a constant attitude of thankfulness and appreciation for life as it unfolds. It is a virtue we can never have to much of and in life’s trials, we seek to understand, to accept, and to learn. Gratitude is the essence of genuine happiness.

Gratitude births only positive feelings –  love, compassion, joy, and hope.

As we focus on what we are thankful for – fear, anger, and bitterness,

simply melt away, seemingly without effort.

~M. J. Ryan

“Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned,

earned, worn or consumed.

Happiness is the spiritual experience

of living every minute

with love, grace, and Gratitude.”

~Denis Waitley

Tuesday's Healing Word - Gratitude

To speak Gratitude is courteous and pleasant,

to enact Gratitude is generous and noble,

to live Gratitude is to touch heaven.

~Johannes A. Gaertner

Practice of Gratitude Exercise (repeat as often as needed)

1.  I am grateful for my life.

2.  I perceive the blessings in each moment.

3.  I continually express appreciation

4.  I reflect on the good things of life.

5.  I find value in my lessons.

6.  I celebrate abundance.

7.  I am happy.
