Using Essential Oil to Connect with Your Authentic Self

November 23rd, 2012 | Posted by Velda in OILS

I have found the following essential oil very important when working with women that have been abused as a child.  The following has been written about this product:

“Inner Child™  Essential Oil opens the pathway to connecting with the inner self that may have been damaged through childhood misuse or abuse.  When children have been abused they become disconnected from their natural identity or inner child.  This causes confusion and can contribute to undesirable personality traits.  The sweet fragrance of this blend may stimulate memory response and help reconnect with the authentic self, which is one of the first steps toward finding emotional balance.”

Gratitude’s Healing Power

This Thanksgiving I am so grateful sharing with women helpful exercises for increasing their energy, health and well-being.  Today lets honor Gratitude by practicing Gratitude Sacred Breathing:  Take time for yourself  to breathe deeply into your abdomen.  Breathe in to the count of 6, hold for 1, and breathe out to the count of 6.  On the in breath, speak silently “I am so blessed,” and on the out breath, speak silently “I am so grateful.”  Repeat this for 5 minutes, and notice how energized and positive you feel.  This is a great way to start your day on a positive, high-energy note.

Oh my aching feet, or not. This might not be a pretty picture but it represents something amazing. The red dot graphic foot marks the Kidney One acupressure point on the Kidney Meridian.  If you were to take a hold of your foot and place the thumb on that location, it would definitely relieve an aching foot.  What else can benefit from applying pressure to the Kidney One acupressure point?  It can help regulate blood pressure, relieves dizziness and faintness, clears the mind, improve  memory, concentration, and mental alertness.  It can help hot flashes, relieving anxiety, restores energy and increases general vitality in the body.

Energy Healing: Step One – Draw Me a Tree!

I like Dr. Bernie S. Siegel’s Exercise 58 in his book 101 Exercises for the Soul.  This is fun homework.

Get yourself a big box of crayons and a drawing tablet.

This is a wonderful tool for self-expression.

Step One:  Draw a picture of an outdoor scene, and include a tree in your art piece.

Let your inner-child come out to play.

Oh, yes and Step Two “What does creative vision say about you?

  Tune in Tomorrow!

place them where they truly will do the most good—ON THE MIRROR!

It makes sense I would recommend Debbie Ford’s book first.  It was part of my homework when attending training  and I quite often recommend it to my clients for their   homework.  One of my favorite quotes from this book is “The deeper truth is that I have a story but I am not my story.” 

 Here is a small snippet taken from chapter one: “I spent the next ten years of my life examining not only my own story but the stories of others.  While on this journey I learned three very important things:  First, we create our life stories in our attempt to become someone or something.  Second, our stories hold the key to our unique purpose in life and to its fulfillment.  And Third, hidden in the shadow of our story  is a very special secret; once this secret is unveiled, we will stand in awe of the magnificence of our own humanity.”

Grounding – Breathing Technique

November 13th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

womanholdingnoseHere is a quick breathing technique to help ground yourself, clear the mind and helps alliviate headaches.  You will use calming, grounding statements as you breathe, like:

Inhaling (through left nostril, closing right nostril with right thumb), “I am breathing in calm” or “I am breathing in good energy.”

(Close left nostril)  Exhaling (through right nostril), ”I am breathing out anxiety” or “I am breathing out bad energy ,” or “I am safe.”

 Repeat rounds 6-10 times, focus on keeping breath smooth, deep and rhythmic.  You will not want to practice this exercise if you have a cold.  If pregnant, please check with your healthcare provider.

Watch for future grounding posts using gemstones, essential oils and my favorite, hugging trees!

 

Balancing the Brain Hemispheres

November 12th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

HarmonystoneThis grounding technique is called, balancing the brain hemispheres.  Many of my clients and I practice this exercise because it is so relaxing. Place both hands on the sides of your head so the palms are resting on the temples and the fingers cradle (wrap around) the crown of your head.  The fingers from both hands will possibly touch at the top of the head.  Hold firmly but not too tight.  Close your eyes and take several deep breaths.  This  is an opportunity to become aware of what your body needs regarding how many seconds it takes before you feel grounded and balanced.

Look for another grounding tip tomorrow!
