animal spirit guide - butterfly

I am excited to introduce this new category ‘Animal Spirit Guides’.  All animal spirit guides, power animals, and animal totems are connected to us as protectors, teachers and guides. Ancient Native Americans & Shamans believed that all animals had lessons to teach and had healing and inspirational power.  We do not choose our Spirit Animal, it chooses us.  Spirit Animals will appear in our life when we are ready to accept the wisdom they offer.

animal spirit guide - butterflyNative Americans see the Butterfly as a symbol of joy. If this stunning insect has chosen to journey with you as a Spirit Guide, count yourself fortunate. The lesson of the Butterfly is letting go of old behavior and expounding into the next phase of existence.  Ask for Butterfly help when: 1. You need help organizing a project; 2. You need the courage to break free from your ‘cocoon’; 3. You are experiencing a major life change; and 4. You take things too seriously.

To dream of a Butterfly Animal Spirit indicates your need to settle down. Butterflies also means creativity, romance, spirituality and transformation.animal spirit guide - butterfly

I recognize my true beauty within,
I value and cherish all that I am.
I have the power to transform my life.
To experience true joy.


tuesday's healing word silence

Today is about the healing power of silence when we turn off the chattering mind and go within to hear our inner wisdom.  It is in silence that we experience the vibration of our deepest creative power.  The pursuit of silence can be found in a quiet early morning walk or a pleasant night stroll. Look for tranquil places either in your home or in nature where you step away from demanding sounds and relax in silence.

Tuesday's Healing Word Silence

When I return from silence I am less than when I entered:

less harried, fearful, anxious and egotistical.

Whatever the gift of silence is, it is one of lessening, purifying, softening.

The “I” that returns is more loving than the “I” who left.
~ Rabbi Rami Shapiro

tuesday's healing word silence
When the mind is still, the Silence will guide me.
There is a profound power in my stillness. I cherish all moments of silence.
I know the healing power & peace in silence.

Morning Mountain Beauty Gift

Nature's Healing Beauty Mountains

Fortunately living in Seattle from a distance I have two beautiful mountain ranges that are always emotionally awesome.  It is difficult to describe the feelings that overtake us when viewing such a splendid part of nature.  One doesn’t have to be a skier, hiker, or step foot on the site of these magnificient mountains to feel their healing energy.

once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

Wash your spirit clean.”

Toning exercise for pain & tensionToning Exercise for Body Pain & Tension

1.  Stand with feet about shoulder width apart and body relaxed.  May sit at the edge of chair with back straight.  Feel free to stand up and move around as you feel the energy.

2.  Inhale through your nose and draw the breath down to the abdomen.  Exhale through your mouth, making a low moan, or whatever comes naturally.  Consciously breathe into wherever you feel pain or tension.  Give a sound to the feeling.

3.  Begin by toning as low as you can and slowly raise the pitch until you find a tone that resonates with the pain.

4.  Repeat at least ten times.  I recommend the book The Healing Power of Sound by Mitchell L. Gaynor, M.D.

Pink Sapphire’s Heart Connection

July 21st, 2013 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

pink sapphire teaches how to master emotions

Natural untreated Pink Sapphires are known to be connected with the human heart. Pink Sapphire helps strengthen and balance the heart. This magnificient gemstone helps ease emotional burdens and pain while relieving the sense of being pressured by life’s demands

Judy Hall writes in her book The Crystal Bible, “Pink Sapphire acts as a magnet to draw into your life all that you need in order to evolve.”

Pink Sapphire reflects the toned-down, more feminine aspect of red color energy, bringing determination, commitment, and caring. Its soothing color calms feelings of anger or resentment, and can aid efforts to meditate and reflect.





Healing Self-Reflecion Quote

“It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way.

To keep your truth in sight

you must keep yourself in sight

and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image;

the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.”

  ~C. JoyBell C.
