How To Worry Smarter

March 21st, 2017 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING | SOUND,CHANTS,MANTRAS

How To Worry Smarter

Today I stumbled across Dr. Beverly Potter’s little book,  The Worrywart’s Companion, Twenty-one Ways To Soothe Yourself and Worry Smart.  How many of us would be a more balanced woman, if we could only worry smarter?  The author points out that “Worrywarts worry themselves sick”,  and like a mantra, silently chant their fears.  However, it doesn’t bring serenity, it only generates anxiety and we know the emotional mind can trigger disease.

How To Worry Smarter

Healthy coping requires a balance of different thinking styles.  Creativity expert Edward DeBono in, The Six Thinking Hats, identified six basic styles of thinking: objective, emotive, supportive, possibility, critical, and strategic. Negative worrying habits can be replaced when practicing any of the following different thinking styles to provide a constructive mental approach dealing with worrisome situations.  For each style of thinking there is a corresponding question.  Asking this question will automatically set the corresponding thinking style in motion.

How To Worry Smarter

Practice Flexible Thinking

Objective Thinking:  Ask yourself  “What are the facts?”  Practicing objective thinking helps bring you back into balance.  It reminds you that the actual facts are not the same as the disastrous scenarios envisioned when worrywarting.

Emotive Thinking:  Ask yourself  ”What am I feeling?”  Look at all of your feelings, whether or not they seem justified, make sense, and even contradict each other.  Physical sensations can be linked to emotions.  It also is important to consider your preferences of likes, dislikes, values and desires, which are ways of looking at what you want or don’t want out of a situation.How To Worry Smarter

Supportive ThinkingAsk yourself  “What is working?”  Supportive thinking looks at the positive aspects of a situation and focuses on ways to enhance them.  Supportive thinking often feels unnatural to worrywarts who tend to focus on weaknesses, what’s wrong, what’s not working.  Engaging in supportive thinking brings you back to a more balanced view of the situation.

Possibility ThinkingAsk yourself “What’s possible here?”  When engaged in possibility thinking, let your creativity run.    Don’t try to be logical or realistic.  The key is to allow your mind the unfettered imaginative freedom of a child at play.  Avoid critiquing your ideas.  Even the most unrealistic or implausible scenarios often contain seeds of valuable new ideas which in the end turn out to have practical applications.How To Worry Smarter

Critical Thinking:  Ask yourself  “What’s wrong? What could go wrong?”  Critical thinking is where worrywarts get stuck.  It looks for what is wrong and is linear and logical.  However, critical thinking is an important skill.  Without the ability to make an accurate assessment of the real risks in a worrisome situation, you are likely to encounter many avoidable difficulties.  In order for critical thinking to be helpful, it must occur within the context of a full range of thinking skills.

Strategic ThinkingAsk yourself  “What’s the next step?”  Once you have engaged each of the preceding five thinking styles, you will have identified the facts of the worrisome situation.  Hopefully you have determined how you feel about it, what you want and what you don’t want to happen.  Final step is to view the worrisome situation from a detached perspective.  Chances are your next step will be some combination of the six thinking styles.  Keep practicing Flexible Thinking, it will become easier.How To Worry Smarter

Please think of us and join with us heart to heart. From Thursday through Sunday we’ll be working among the great rocks of Joshua Tree National Park to link this powerful site in Southern California with all sacred places on Earth. Uluru, Stonehenge, Machu Pichu, Mount Kailash, Glastonbury, Sedona, and thousands of others. Together we will magnify the presence of the Net of Light to hold both ourselves and the Earth steady during these shaky times.  Along with a Native American singer, we’ll call on the ancestors of our family lines and of the Earth itself, praying for reconciliation within the United States of America and throughout the world. We will immerse ourselves in prayer, meditation and sacred song, performing a ceremony of gratitude and reconciliation among the great rocks of Joshua Tree. Please connect with us within the Net of Light and link your hearts with ours as together we ask that blessings rain down on all beings.

And, not matter what occurs in the world outside, do not deviate from your focus on the One Love. Trust in your heart to carry you forward. The power of your heart will rise up to match the challenges of the times you are living in–every time.”

March Tapping Fears Away

March 1st, 2017 | Posted by Velda in FEATURE POSTS REVISITED | POETRY FOR WOMEN

March Tapping Fears Away

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a very simple and effective tapping practice for adults as well as children.  It is universally used by professionals as well as novice for physical, emotional, and performance issues.  Before beginning a series of tapping, rate the intensity of how you are feeling from 0-10 (10 being the most upset).  This will measure how often you may need to repeat the tapping series. The Tapping is done with two or more fingertips.  Read the script out loud, allowing your emotions to be heard.March Tapping Fear Away

Start with the following Karate Chop Set-up Script For Fear:

Begin tapping side hand and repeat the following out loud before each of the rounds you do.

1.  Even though I am so afraid and don’t know what to do. I love and accept myself.

2.  Even though my stomach does a flip whenever I think of.___,  and how afraid I am.   I love and accept myself anyway.

3.  Even though I don’t feel in control,  and that makes me even more afraid, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

You can tap with the fingertips of either hand, most people use their dominant hand.  Where there are two identical points on each side of the body, you can choose to do only one side or both.    Again, reading the script out loud allows emotions to be heard.

Tapping for Fear

Karate Set-Up (above script)

Tap five times while repeating script on each of the following points: 

Top of Head:  This fear

Edge of Eyebrow: It’s everywhere

Side of Eye:  It feels bad

Under Eye:   It just won’t go away

Under Nose:  I’m afraid

Under Chin: I’m not safe

Collarbone:  This awful fear

Under Arm:  I don’t want this…

Continue rounds:  Until  fears decrease.  MAKE MARCH TAPPING FEARS AWAY MONTH!

Ksepana Mudra – Releases Negativity

February 22nd, 2017 | Posted by Velda in AFFIRMATIONS | MEDITATIONS & MUDRAS

Ksepana Mudra - Releases Negativity

Ksepana Mudra (gesture of pouring out and letting go), directs negative energy out of the body, and brings in positive energy.  Use when you feel unhappy, or if you need to release any thoughts or concerns which may be causing you tension. This mudra is beneficial after being in a large crowd or following an argument. It clears your energy field and cleanses your emotions.

Ksepana Mudra Practice:Kespana Mudra Releases Negativity

1.  Begin with the mudra at heart center.  Place your index fingers flat against each other pointing up.  Clasp the rest of your fingers and let the finger pads rest on the back of your hands.  Cross your thumbs.

2.  On your first inhale turn the index fingers to point down.  If lying down, point them in the direction of your feet.  Completely relax both hands.

3.  With each inhale envision vibrant, light energy flowing into your body and on your exhale let go of negativity in any of its forms.

4.  Practice a total of seven times.  When done place your hands on your thighs with palms turned upward.

Ksepana Mudra Affirmation:

In Gertrud Hirschi’s book, Mudras Yoga in your Hands, she asks us to visualize the following picture:  You sit on an elevated stone in or near a stream and hold this mudra.  While you exhale, so much sweat pours from every pore, that a rivulet flows out of you into the stream.  In conclusion, wash yourself in the cooling stream.  Turn and dry off in facing the warming sun.  When you inhale, fill yourself with new fresh energy.  Then repeat the following affirmation:

Your Personal Year Number & Color

February 4th, 2017 | Posted by Velda in COLORS | GEMSTONES | NUMBER POWER

Calculating Personal Year NumberI am fascinated with the possible messages from numbers and decided to share how to calculate your Personal Year Vibration Number as shown in Louise Hay’s book, Numbers & Colors.  First we need to know what the Universal Number is for 2017, by adding the four digits:  2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 (1 + 0 = #1).  In numerology, you continue reducing numbers until you have a single digit.  The Universal Year #1 represents the start of a fresh new cycle – a new 9 year cycle of creativity, learning and growth.

Calculating Personal Year Number

Calculating Your Personal Year Number

Add together the birth month + the birth day + current Universal Year = Personal Year Vibration Number. Remember to reduce the result to a single digit by adding together the digits of the sum and doing so repeatedly until the sum is less than 10.  Here is an example: 5 (for May) +12 (for birth day) + 1 (Universal Year 2017) = 18 (1+8 = #9  Personal Year Vibration).  If your calculations for personal vibrations total an 11 or 22, do not reduce these numbers to a 2 or 4.  The numbers 11 and 22 are considered Master Numbers. They indicate that you are being given an opportunity to operate for that period on a higher vibration.  Write them as “11/2″ or “22/4″.   You then have a choice of being the reduced 2 or 4 rather than 11/2 or 22/4 (see options below).

Your Personal Year Number & Color

Following are snippets found in Louise Hay’s book,  Numbers & Colors, on each Personal Year:

#1  Personal Year:  Color-Red, Gem-Ruby, Key Word-Beginning, Affirmation: “I break new ground and begin new ventures!”

#2 Personal Year:  Color-Orange, Gem-Moonstone, Key Word-Cooperate, Affirmation: “I trust the process of life, & unfold in Divine right order!”

#3 Personal Year:  Color-Yellow, Gem-Topaz, Key Word-Enjoyment, Affirmation: “I Love Life, and the joy of living!”

#4 Personal Year:  Color-Green, Gems-Emerald/Jade, Key Word-Practical, Affirmation: “I turn everything into an opportunity!”

#5 Personal Year:  Color-Blue, Gems-Turquoise/Aquamarine, Key Word-Change, Affirmation:  “I welcome change and expand my boundaries!”

#6 Personal Year:  Color-Indigo, Gems-Pearl/Sapphire/Lapis, Key Word-Responsibility, Affirmation:  “I accept my responsibilities with love and joy!”

#7 Personal Year:  Color-Purple-Violet, Gem-Amethyst, Key Word-Faith, Affirmation:  “I enjoy the inner quest and find many answers!”

#8 Personal Year:  Colors-Beige/Brown/Pink, Gem-Diamond, Key Word-Achievement, Affirmation: “I am the prosperous, successful executive of my world!”

#9 Personal Year:  Colors-All Pastels, Gem/Precious Metal-Opal/Gold, Key Word-Completion, Affirmation:  “I am satisfied, fulfilled, and complete!”

#11/2 Personal Year (Master Number):  Colors-Black/White or Pearl Gray, Precious Metal-Silver, Key Word-Intuition, Affirmation:  “I listen to the inner voice of wisdom!”

#22/4 Personal Year (Master Number):  Colors-Coral/Russet, Gem/Precious Metal-Coral/Copper, Key Word-Greatness, Affirmation:   ”I work for the good of the planet, and I am blessed!”

Goddess Wisdom-White Buffalo Calf WomanWhite Buffalo Calf Woman’s ancient legend goes back at least 2000 years, and is central to the spiritual practices of numerous Native American Nations. There are various, but similar, versions of White Buffalo Calf Woman’s mythology.   One shares that White Buffalo Calf Woman arrived spending four days with their people.  She was cradling a sacred bundle in her arms.  On the fourth day White Buffalo Calf Woman left in the same manner she had arrived, telling the people she was leaving the sacred bundle, the White Buffalo Calf Woman’s pipe, in their care. She promise one day to return for it and to also bring harmony and spiritual balanced back to the world.

“It was told that next time there is chaos and disparity,  she would return again.

She said she would return as a White Buffalo Calf. Some believe she already has.”

~Words of Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, of the Lakota Nation

Lakota Instructions for Living

Friend do it this way – that is,
whatever you do in life,
do the very best you can
with both your heart and mind.

And if you do it that way,
the Power Of The Universe
will come to your assistance,
if your heart and mind are in Unity.

When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,
one must be responsible because
All of Creation is related.
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.
And the honor of one is the honor of all.
And whatever we do effects everything in the universe.

If you do it that way – that is,
if you truly join your heart and mind
as One – whatever you ask for,
that’s the Way It’s Going To Be.

Tuesday’s Healing Word – Liberate

January 31st, 2017 | Posted by Velda in TUESDAY'S HEALING WORD

Tuesday's Healing Word-Liberate

Liberate or liberating is making you feel free and being able to behave as you like.  Author, Caren Goldman questions in her book, Healing Words for The Body, Mind and Spirit, “What keeps you so frozen in time that you can’t find the energy or wherewithal to break loose and be who you are now?  Is it an old tape playing back something belittling someone once said?  Is it self-judgment, doubt or criticism?  Is it a fear of change?”

To see your drama clearly

is to be Liberated

from it.

~Kahlil Gibran

Tuesday's Healing Word - Liberate

“Liberate your mind 

from all insecurities

and let it be free.”

~ Abira Mukherjee

Tuesday's Healing Word - Liberate

 I invite all women to experience the energy of liberation.
