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!

Many of you are probably too young to remember the character Tarzan, or had little brothers running around the house pounding the center of their chest like a drum pretending to be Tarzan of the jungle.  Now I know that they were doing some great energy healing.  Tapping the area over the thymus gland is a simple technique that awakens the body’s energies, helps the immune system, and increases your strength and vitality.  This is especially true if your immune system is being challenged if you are catching a cold, fighting an infection or if you are feeling a little down.

youngtarzanthymustapThe Tarzan thump is a simple technique:  Take the four fingers of both hands and tap the center between the breasts, or you can make like Tarzan and tap with one fist.  Tap firmly, breathe slowly and deeply, in through your nose and out through your mouth for two or three deep breaths.  This is one of those exercises that you can repeat throughout the day which will help stimulate and reset the thymus gland.  Happy thumping.

 

 

Chanting OM is recommended to release blockages that might be present in your throat region.  The OM sound is believed to have a positive effect on the nervous system, to strengthen the respiratory system and to energize every part of the body.  Chanting its three syllables sets up rebalancing vibrations in your body.   Here are the components of OMAAAH  OU  MMMMM  and directions on how to chant:OMcolorwheel

AAAH -open mouth wide and begin to loudly chant the initial syllable, AAAH, letting the sound begin in the pit of your abdomen.

OU - Gradually round your lips to allow the sound to morph into OU.  Feel it move up through your chest and throat region.

MMMMM - Continue rounding your lips more tightly to form the final sound, MMMMM.  Let the sound vibrate in your head and face, especially in your sinus cavities.

Feel free to repeat OM Chanting slowly, making each part of the sound as long as possible.   The sounds can become softer and softer until you are whispering or humming the chant.  Then begin to make the sound gradually louder again.

 

 

 

 

 

7 Rights = 7 Chakra Affirmations

November 10th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in CHAKRAS

ChakrawomaninflowercenterToday I want to briefly go over the seven rights of the seven major chakras.  First (Root) chakra is the right to be here and the right to have.  Second (Sacral) chakra is the right to feel and the right to want. Third (Solar-plexus) chakra is the right to act and the right to be free. Fourth (Heart) chakra is the right to love and be loved.  Fifth (Throat) chakra is the right to speak and hear truth.  Sixth (Brow) chakra is the right to see. Seventh (Crown) chakra is the right to know.

This is a powerful chakra affirmation:

I HAVE,    I FEEL,    I CAN,    I LOVE,    I SPEAK,    I SEE,    I KNOW

Repeat it as often as you feel it is needed.

COMMUNITY

Somewhere, there are people

to whom we can speak with passion

without having the words catch in our throats.

Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us,

eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate

 with us

whenever we come into our own power.

Community means strength that joins us our strength

to do the work that needs to be done.

Arms to hold us when we falter.

A circle of healing.  A circle of friends.

Someplace where

we can be free.

The Cold and Flu Season Essential Oil Warriors

November 10th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in OILS

TheivesessentialoilImmuPoweressentialoilI like to diffuse ImmuPower Essential Oil in the morning and again in the evening and apply Thieves Essential Oil to the feet.  The next day, I alternate diffuse Thieves in the morning and evening, and apply ImmuPower to the throat, thymus (include thymus tapping), and feet.  During the cold and flu season, I truly appreciate these two ‘Essential Oil Warriors.’  ImmuPower blend helps raise the frequency of the immune system which helps overcome the flu, colds, respiratory problems, infections, etc.  Thieves has highly anti-viral, antiseptic properties of the single oils contained in this blend which helps protect the body from the onset of flu, colds, etc.

 

Grounding Techniques

November 10th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

grounded woman with rootsAre you grounded?  At times we all experience stress, emotional irritability, not feeling connected, a little spaced out, and an inability to focus.  This is when we are definitely not grounded.  Here is a quick grounding technique that can be done in a few moments:

Stand up, give your body a doggy shake to loosen up.  Then start bouncing up and down on the balls of your feet for about 20 seconds.  Relax, close your eyes, if you choose, and feel the earth energy entering into your feet.  Doing this as often as needed during the day is very beneficial and you will start to realize your increased awareness of the grounding energyREMEMBER be open.  This an excellent exercise to do as soon as you hop out of bed.  It is energizing.  Then before you drop into bed at night, a few up and down bounces will help you sleep.

More grounding tips tomorrow!

 

 

Balanced View of Healing

November 10th, 2012 | Posted by Velda in ENERGY HEALING

Jeanne Acherberg, in her book Women as Healer, reminds us of the following concepts, which contribute toward a balanced view of healing:

balancedgreenstonesHealing is a lifelong journey toward wholeness.

Healing is remembering what has been forgotten about connection, and unity and interdependence among all things living and nonliving.

Healing is embracing what is most feared.

Healing is opening what has been closed, softening what has hardened into obstruction.

Healing is entering into the transcendent, timeless moment when one experiences the divine.

Healing is creativity and passion and love.

Healing is seeking and expressing self in its fullness.

Healing is learning to trust life.

When we are underdeveloped in any of these concepts, we find a closed door to our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
