Women Connect With Goddess Selene

Women Connect to Goddes Selene

Selene, Goddess of the Full Moon, is a Titan – the generation of Greek divinities that ruled prior to the Olympians.  She is called Luna by the Romans.  Selene is depicted as a woman riding side-saddle on a horse, or in a chariot drawn by a pair of winged horses.  She wears a crown with the lunar sphere or crescent on it, or has these moon images on her cloak.  Author Jean Shinoda Bolen writes the following in her book,  Artemis, the Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman: “With the description of Selene as the full moon incarnate, I was struck with the realization that it was her fullness as she is that needs emphasis.”   I agree with the author when she also shares that a woman’s maturity brings qualities of her passions, dedication, and perseverance to the place where a woman can say, “I Am A Full Woman”.  This affirmation appeared in Rachel Bagby’s (award-winning artist, author, composer) dream when she was feeling anything by full.  It was a healing song for her.   Since then it has been so for countless other women, who dance and chant, ”I am a full woman, I am a full woman”,  and take this message to heart.

What can we learn from Selene’s Archetype – The Lover?

Women Connect With Goddess SeleneThe Lover Archetype represents passion and selfless devotion to another person. It also extends to the things that make our hearts sing, like music art or nature.

The shadow aspect is obsessive passion that completely takes over and negatively impacts on your health and self esteem.

How To Work With The Lover

You may be drawn to this stereotype if you are looking to attract a new lover or to re-ignite the fire in an existing relationship.  The Lover can also be a useful tool to discover what you are passionate about in life.

On the shadow side you need to ask, whether the energy and time you are putting into relationships, or enthusiasm for projects is excessive? If this continues for too long you are likely to suffer from stress and physical ill health.

Reflexology Key Pressure Points

October 7th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in ACUPRES.,MERIDIANS, REFLEX.

 Reflexology Key Pressure Points

Reflexology gently affects our organs, glands, and each part of the body by stimulating reflex pressure points on different anatomy locations.  Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, headaches, PMS, sinusitis and more.   I invite you to try practicing reflexology by following the guide shown below.  This information is provided by Valerie Voner, C.R.T., author of The Everything Reflexology Book.    All you need to do is set aside so quiet time for yourself.  Select the area you are needing help and simply press on the pressure points as indicated on that particular illustration.  It is best to press on the pressure points firmly but not too hard.  It is also okay to massage the point in a circular motion.  Feel free to revisit pressure points several times a day for 10- 30 seconds until healing is accomplished.

Nature’s Healing Photo Opportunities

October 5th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in NATURE'S HEALING GIFTS

Nature's Healing OpportunitiesSometimes we need to take advantage of nature’s healing photo opportunities that surround us 24/7.    I decided to share these nature’s healing photos taken on my morning walks.  There is a great deal written on therapeutic photography.   When we see something in nature that moves us to snap a picture with our camera, there is an intimate personal bond captured at that moment.

Nature's Healing Photo Opportunities

Do you remember watching clouds as a kid and seeing shapes? I am an active cloud watcher.  When was the last time you looked up to discover an animal, creature, or a caricature of a famous person floating in the sky?    It is like magical healing to let your inner child come out and play.    Cloud watching allows you to use your imagination and it gives you a chance to relax!

Nature's Healing Photo Opportunities

October is a wonderful month for photo healing opportunities.   Hopefully we all can take the time to benefit from nature’s fall colors by visiting our local botanical gardens and parks.  It is important to remember being in nature is healing, but also being surround by nature inspired art is also beneficial.  There have been studies proving that using this type of art in hospitals and medical facilities help patients heal faster.  I hope you are ready to grab your camera and head for nature.

Nature's Healing Photo Opportunities

I have been extremely delighted with my latest early morning walks through the neighborhood.  The phone camera came in handy when capturing the above photo where someone created Fall humor in nature for all to enjoy.  Each morning when passing this gigantic hedge, it puts a smile on my face and a warm connection to a neighbor I haven’t met.  Remember a smile is the key to unlock the door of healing love-energy, or also known as (SMILE = Start + My + Internal + Love + Engine).  Nature has love-energy photo opportunities for everyone!

Foods for Color Energy Healing

 Foods For Color Energy Healing

We all know a little about the color of food we eat is important.  Here is more information found in The Complete Book of Color Healing by Lilian Verner-Bonds.  Different-colored foods taken into the body can be used to heal, lift the mood, and stimulate our health.   There is an essential connection between the vibration rate that a certain color has and the pattern of nutrients a particular food provides.  It is an important fact to know that the  color energy of microwaved, processed, and junk food has been removed.

Following is the Author’s Beneficial Food Colors List:

Tuesday’s Healing Word-Integrity

September 20th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in AFFIRMATIONS | TUESDAY'S HEALING WORD

uesday's Healing Word-Integrity

Integrity is living by your highest standards.  It is being honest and sincere with others and ourselves.  It means standing up for what we believe is right and our actions match our words.  When discovering in a personal or business situation that there has been a challenge in trusting integrity, there is always a lesson for me to look at and evaluate my own integrity.

Tuesday's Healing Word-Integrity

INTEGRITY is choosing

COURAGE OVER COMFORT.

choosing what is right

over what is

FUN, FAST OR EASY.

Choosing to

PRACTICE OUR VALUES

rather than simply

PROFESSING THEM.

Tapping In The Joy Benefits

September 9th, 2016 | Posted by Velda in ACUPRES.,MERIDIANS, REFLEX. | CHAKRAS

Tapping in the Joy

I have attended several of Donna Eden’s workshops and have enjoyed her and David Feinstein’s Energy Medicine Books.  Here is one of her simplest techniques to practice that can help reprogram your nervous system to be more joyful, uplifting and life-affirming:

Tapping IN joy & MoreTapping In The Joy Energy:

1.  Next time you feel joy, fabulous, and life is good reinforce this energy by “tapping in” this joy at your Third Eye located between your eyebrows just above the bridge of the nose.

2.  Tap with the middle finger of either hand using a steady beat for 10 to 12 seconds.  This “taps” your feeling of joy into the first acupuncture point of your nervous system.

Variations of this Powerful Energy:

1.  Recall a treasured moment in your life and “tap it in”.

2. Treasure your body.  Thank it for amazing service and gratitude, “tap it in”.

Tapping in The Joy Benefits

TAP!   TAP!   TAP!

Nature’s Tree Healing Spirits

Nature's Healing Tree Spirits

(Can you find the Young Woman Spirit hiding & the Wise Elder Spirit resting?)

I know every one that loves trees, like myself (a true tree hugger), can attest that each individual tree has its own energy.  Trees also carries a spirit or a piece of energy from its species as a whole (like our DNA).  For instance my favorite giant oak tree in the backyard of my previous home has its own unique energy, but it also carries with it the otherworldly qualities of every Oak Tree that’s ever existed.  Native American teachings refer to trees as  ”The Standing People.”   These Native teachings speak of the special lessons and gifts trees give to humankind.  The two trees featured above are among other (Standing People) trees I have seen in my city’s local botanical park.  I invite you all to start looking for the personality of some of your favorite trees.

Nature's Healing Gift - The Oak Tree

Here are four Tree Spirit Guides that might come into your life (this list is by no means all inclusive):

Nature's Tree Healing SpiritsOak is one of the most loved trees in history. It has an energy that is strong, powerful, mostly masculine, deeply-rooted, and wise.  Oak also represents steadfastness, stability, and carrying an acorn with you will bring protection.

Willow is a favorite. She holds feminine energy, as well as being a representation of the moon and the goddess. Willow will bring you dreams and help in enchantments among many other things.  Visit a Willow if you are wanting to be open to clairvoyance and the powers of the third eye.Nature's Tree Healing Spirits

Palm  tropical tree is found in warmer climates. This magical tree totem will bring the sunshine into your life metaphorically speaking. In ancient Egypt, the palm tree was a phallic symbol representing the fertility of the gods, namely Osiris.

Pine tree has many spiritual properties which  include fertility, abundance, health, purification, and rebirth. It is associated with ancient wisdom, impeccability and eternal life.

Keep in mind that any type of tree can be your totem or spirit guide and will vary depending on where you live.  We will be reviewing more of the beautiful Tree Spirit Guides in the future.   You might want to go out and hug a tree today.  It is very healing.

Letting Go

September 1st, 2016 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN | RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

Letting Go

To let go does not mean to stop caring,
It means I can’t do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off,
It’s the realization I can’t control another.
To let go is not to enable,
But to allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means
The outcome is not in my hands.

Letting Go

To let go is not to try to change or blame another,
It’s to make the most of myself.
To let go is not to care for,
But to care about.
To let go is not to fix,
But to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,
But to allow another to be a human being.

Letting Go

To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
But to allow others to affect their destinies.
To let go is not to be protective,
It’s to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny,
But to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold or argue,
But instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

Letting Go

To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
But to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
To let go is not to criticize or regulate anybody,
But to try to become what I dream I can be.
To let go is not to regret the past,
But to grow and live for the future.
To let go is to fear less and love more…
Remember: The time to love is short.

Letting Go

We can truly accept and love ourselves and others without judging, when we LET GO!

Nature's Healing Gift - Sunflowers

While on my early walk, I pass a Community Pea Patch Garden and yesterday a tall stately plant caught my attention. Sunflowers always brings a smile to my heart. That particular morning it also brought a song to my voice.  Thankfully there were only a few bunnies, squirrels, and crows wondering about the crazy lady singing about Sunflowers.   Well this also peaked my interest to research this nature’s gift, which is always fun to share.

Wild sunflowers color the earth, bring joy to flower gardens and ornament homes as a cheerful bouquet. The color yellow, especially natural yellow, is proven to be a mood lifter that energizes a space and enlivens your spirits. These plants are native to North America, Peru and Mexico. Both the Inca’s and the Aztecs worshipped Sunflowers.  The seeds, flowers, leafs, stem and root all have uses.   Sunflower seeds are rich in magnesium, potassium, selenium, zinc and iron. Eating these seeds improve digestion, brain power, and functioning of the cardiovascular system. Sunflower oil prevents heart diseases and is a great skin moisture retainer.

Fukushima power plant in Japan has urged residents to plant Sunflowers because of leaking radioactive material.  They help to absorb cesium from the soil. Sunflowers and plants with similar biology were also used in radioactive cleanup efforts after the Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine.  These happy  looking plants represent a hopeful beacon and a symbol of reconstruction.  What a magnificent thought to encourage more Sunflowers to be planted all over the world!
