How to Block Miracles

chakrabalanceWhat Do You Call a Miracle?

The dictionary describes “Miracles” as an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause, a work of God, a wonder, or marvel.

You might think of miracles as cures for diseases, lucky coincidences, good fortunes, or divine intervention.

 

I like to think of Miracles as normal, natural, everyday events. Even though we can’t explain HOW or WHY something happens, when we are in alignment with All That Is – God – we provide for the purest expression of God in ourselves, all events, things, beings, thoughts, words, and actions. In addition, using the word “normal” doesn’t minimize anything. Instead, we bring to light what we may frequently take for granted – in everything from how cells work to why stars shine.

Miracles are the way the heart beats, even if we don’t think about it. Miracles are the “good” bacteria in our bodies that help provide balance and keep us healthy. Miracles are the emotions that inspire and motivate us, soften our thoughts, or help us stand in our power to change the world. Miracles are the inner “knowing” we all have for every aspect of living.

Science tries to explain these phenomena. In doing so, the gap is closing on events we perceive to have scientific explanations and what is sacred. In fact, there is no division between miracles and the explainable . . . except our capability to understand. In fact, it is our lack of understanding of the true nature of miracles that blocks miracles from happening.

It’s not only possible to block miracles, but we do it all the time. We block good things from happening in our lives. We block our good health. We block relationships, money, and creativity. We block our talents and gifts from shining. We block our abilities to manifest what we want. Miracles could be more simply achieved and recognized, but we block what we want most.

How to Block Miracles

  • Self-sabotage. Keep making the same mistakes, poor choices, and bad decisions. Repeat.
  • Confusion. Every time you think you’re on the right path, do or say something that confirms the opposite. Proclaim the miracle you want, but expect to not get it.
  • Let your emotions run your life. Did I say “run”? How about “ruin”? Emotions are very powerful.
  • Denial. Your belief that miracles don’t exist is as powerful as someone else’s belief that miracles do exist. Keep on denying to block your miracles from happening.
  • Unworthiness. If someone told you that you don’t deserve a miracle – that you’re not worthy – and you believe them, they’re right. Belief in your unworthiness is a great miracle blocker.

The Right Conditions for Miracles

Of course, we don’t really want to block miracles. What we really want is to be open to receiving miracles – one of the many benefits we have for living here on earth. You can become aware of the miracles that exist around you.  Furthermore, you have the power to create the right conditions for miracles now in your life.

Signs of a Healer

 


healer's journey webinar

Are you a healer?

Image

 

Years ago, when my kids were in grade school, I had a friend who saw something in me that I didn’t recognize in myself.
She told me I was a healer. That came as a bit of a surprise to me. I truthfully hadn’t thought about it at all, and even wondered what being a healer
meant.
I understood my skills as a teacher, having taught many years in public and private schools around the world. My background in science, especially biology, translated easily into knowing about nature in a more intimate way. As a mom, I can’t say I utilized that knowledge for healing. I was stuck in a paradigm of sickness that relied on doctors and medicine to help me and my family recover.
I had forgotten the true nature of “nature”, and that healing was something we could support in a different way from the traditional, modern methods. I had fallen into the trap of doctor visits with side-effects, fear-based decisions that led to unnecessary surgeries and tests, and belief in something outside myself that could come to my rescue if needed.
I was wrong.

The Healer’s Journey

Years ago, when my kids were in grade school, I had a friend who saw something in me that I didn’t recognize in myself.

She told me I was a healer. That came as a bit of a surprise to me. I truthfully hadn’t thought about it at all, and even wondered what being a healer meant.

I understood my skills as a teacher, having taught many years in public and private schools around the world. My background in science, especially biology, translated easily into knowing about nature in a more intimate way. As a mom, I can’t say I utilized that knowledge for healing. I was stuck in a paradigm of sickness that relied on doctors and medicine to help me and my family recover.

I had forgotten the true nature of “nature”, and that healing was something we could support in a different way from the traditional, modern methods. I had fallen into the trap of doctor visits and medications with side-effects, fear-based decisions that led to unnecessary surgeries and tests, and belief in something outside myself that could come to my rescue if needed.

I was wrong.

Over the years I rediscovered myself, and saw the healer in me emerge. It’s been an interesting journey for me. I’m still growing, evolving, and stepping more thoroughly into the role as healer – for myself, my family, and my community. I care deeply about our planet and feel that the healing work I do is meant to play an integral part in healing Earth and the deep wounding that has occurred here.

Are you a healer?

Perhaps you’re like me, and didn’t recognize the healer in yourself. You might not be aware of the signs. Are you sensitive? Do you have an uncanny relationship with animals? Do your hands tingle? Do people always come to you with their problems? These are a few indicators that you are a healer.

I invite you to see yourself in a new light. Tell me about how you can recognize the signs that indicate you are a healer. What’s YOUR journey? Describe for me what magic YOU bring to the world.

The Healer’s Journey

Your personal story begins the journey of discovering your gifts and healing abilities. Your Shamanic ancestry shows in the suffering and trauma you’ve survived to reach the point of emergence. Now you’re ready to hone your skills and grow into the healer you were meant to be.

You don’t have to do this alone. Historically, healers were seen on the outskirts of community. They were different, feared, and even killed for their skills. Today, we bring honor to the role of healing, for we, as healers, form a new community – a network of energy workers that helps sustain the planet. We bond together for the enlightened Good and tap into healing wisdom of the Universe.

Recipe for Self Care

Recipe for Self CareWho loves recipes? Especially now, when alternative care can be a DIY (do it yourself) activity, recipes for self care help keep you going.

Here are a few basics to get you started:

Recipe for Morning Self Care

  • 3 Deep Breaths  ~ add your favorite essential oil for grounding, like vetiver or frankincense.
  • 1 Tall Glass of Water ~ be sure to hydrate with filtered water. Add your favorite citrus essential oil, like lemon or orange directly to your glass, then pour in the water. Ahhh!
  • Gently stretch your arms and legs, wiggle your toes, and tilt your head to bring oxygen into sleepy muscles. Try massaging a soothing essential oil blend like PanAway to relieve any discomforts and allow a deeper stretch.

Recipe for Afternoon Self Care

  • Avoid the mid-afternoon munchies and help curb your appetite with essential oils like our Slique Essence blend. It has ocotea from the cinnamon family, known to help with blood sugar ratios.
  • Take a few minutes to step outside every hour. Not only does fresh air revitalize your energy, but it helps to bring more joy to your routine.
  • Feeling overwhelmed by stress? It’s important to actively detoxify your physical body as well as your environment. Try our liquid zeolite to remove heavy metals. Diffuse Stress Away essential oil blend to bring on a sense of calm.

Recipe for Evening Self Care

  • Choose foods that are nourishing without the added bulk of empty calories. Try green vegetables seasoned with any of our Vitality essential oils, like black pepper, oregano, or jade lemon.
  • Soak your feet in epsom salts to improve circulation and relaxation. Try mixing lavender essential oil to the salts before adding water. Then use lavender essential oil directly on your feet before bed for a restful sleep.
  • Make sure your room is dark, without added electronics nearby casting a glow. You need your dark sleep to replenish serotonin for energy the next day.

The Basic Principles of Health and Healing


second nature healing 

 

Hello {!firstname_fix}
Image 

 

I asked some friends recently what they thought the basics of health and healing might be. Their responses included good sleep, eating well, and movement . . . all sound responses – all tried and true. However, not everyone can achieve good sleep. Not everyone makes good choices for eating. It might not even be so
easy for people to move their bodies.
If this is the case, then we HAVE TO go deeper. We have to go to the core of health and healing – to the root, so to speak. Because of this, I decided to delve into the ways I see as core issues to assemble the Basic Principles of Health and Healing.
Be sure to click the images and links to read the news in which you’re interested. See our updated calendar to join us for classes, or schedule a rejuvenating healing
appointment.

Frankincense for Dogs With Cancer

essential oils for animalsEssential oils have been an integral part of my Reiki healing clinic for several years. I consider their energy and aroma extremely valuable for all aspects of the services I provide – for trauma release, physical and emotional relief, spiritual enhancement, and revitalizing abilities, I love how essential oils fit into natural healing work. My clients and students feel supported, and the work we do seems to be more effective.

Not long after I began using essential oils for my human clients did I investigate the possibility and efficacy of essential oils for my animal clients. Careful consideration was given to the quality of essential oils, and I chose a specific company to support my work in the best possible way. It matters to the animals!

Great care must be taken not to make medical claims, so my research led me to specific studies involving human cancer since fewer studies with essential oils are done with animals. In one study, frankincense from Boswelia carteri was used for human bladder cancer to see if it would be effective as an anti-tumor agent. The results were quite promising.

“Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Microarray and bioinformatics analysis proposed multiple pathways that can be activated by frankincense oil to induce bladder cancer cell death. Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment.” (1)

Frankincense for Dogs with Cancer

Backed by research and ready to offer support to my animal clients, dogs with cancer, I added frankincense essential oil from Boswelia carteri to my list of effective natural solutions. I have found that specific essential oils help with immune support, digestion, emotional support, and many other types of support for health and recovery.

There are several considerations to be made before using frankincense for your dog:

  1. age and size of your dog
  2. overall health and current diagnosis, if any
  3. current diet
  4. quality and purity of the frankincense (I use only the ones I trust to be the best)
  5. dosage and frequency specific for your animal
  6. combination with other treatments
  7. integration with other essential oils
  8. method of delivery
  9. your holistic approach and attitude

Click the link for more information and to Order Frankincense.

 Wellness Scan and Reiki

Work with your vet to have the support a veterinarian offers – lab tests, ultra sound, x-rays, etc. Gather as much information as possible. However, remember to also include a more complete aspect of healing with an intuitive assessment and Reiki. Learn more  about Animal Healing or contact me for a free consultation.

Article – Grounding to Heal
Remember how it feels to be secure, grounded and protected? Maybe this is a feeling you
have every day . . . or not.
 If you can recall this feeling, you are “grounded”. But in today’s world, when things are more hectic, and we seem to be more attached to electronic devices, it may be more difficult to feel grounded. Why is grounding important? Read more about Grounding to Heal.When you’re working with essential oils and want to add the intention of becoming more grounded, look to
the oils that actually come from the roots of the plant! That’s right, roots can help you become grounded. Pictured above is ginger root that I have resting in purified, living water. I’ll keep you posted on any sprouts that develop!
 I’ve selected a couple of essential oils that can help you feel more grounded. One is a root – ginger root. The other is a blend called Grounding.
Image

 

Ginger root is widely used in flavoring foods and beverages, and is great in tea to aid in digestion. Did you also know that it has a warm feel to the skin? Try ginger
essential oil added to a carrier oil for massage – especially on sore muscles and joints.
Inhale deeply and feel revitalized.
Meditate with ginger essential oil to help feel more grounded.
grounding

 

Grounding essential oil blend is a wonderful way to utilize the energy of roots, flowers and bark to help you feel more grounded. With trees like fir, spruce, pine and cedar,
you’ll instantly feel connected to the forest. The sweetness of a few flowers helps remind you of the joy in life.

Animal Healing Stories
animal healing and soul connections

 

No one likes a serious diagnosis, and sometimes what you need to bring about healing isn’t in the vet’s toolkit.
Such was the case with a Golden Retriever with severe allergies, hair loss, ear infections, and misery. Antibiotics and medications weren’t working. What did work was his human mom’s commitment to natural healing. Once she started on the path we recommended, his recovery was almost instantly noticeable – no more itching, rolling, anxiety, or fur loss. Infections cleared up and healed over in a few days. His mom understands the value of
natural healing and is a true believer!
Find out what natural healing might look like for you and your beloved furry family member. I’ve put together a healing package that includes Reiki and animal communication, along with guidance through the entire process. Learn more about Animal Healing and Soul Connections.

Grounding to Heal

Remember how it feels to be secure, grounded and protected?
Maybe this is a feeling you have every day . . . or not.

If you can recall this feeling, you are “grounded”. But in today’s world, when things are more hectic, and we seem to be more attached to electronic devices, it may be more difficult to feel grounded.

Why is Grounding Important?

Grounding is the foundation on which you build your energetic house. It helps you feel like you can make decisions easily. Fear and doubt melt away as you become more comfortable with yourself – how you look and feel. You feel like you have more clarity, sense of purpose, optimism, and joy. Financial security and a sense of having “enough” are traits of a grounded person. Home and hearth are centered around feeling grounded. If you see yourself with these positive attributes, congratulations! Staying grounded will continue to work in your favor in all aspects of living.

How to Become More Grounded

1. The fastest, easiest way to become more grounded is to walk barefoot on the earth, lay on the earth, be outside, dig in the earth (gardening, perhaps), and connect with the earth in any way that feels comfortable. Oceans, waterfalls, mountains, and trees all feel so far away from our reality. Yet, they share something with us that we sometimes forget . . . we’re all made of the same stuff – the same molecules found in everything.

2. If going outside seems impossible, bring the outside in. Plants, crystals, beautiful images of the outdoors, water fountains, and earth-tone interior colors added to your indoor environment are great ways to become grounded.

3. Eat foods of the earth. Root vegetables, fruits and vegetables in season, dark, leafy greens, dark chocolate, minerals, and wholesome soups and stews are grounding foods.

4. Certain essential oils offer balance to the root chakra – the energy center for grounding. Select essential oils derived from roots, such as vetiver, ginger, and mugwort. Essential oils derived from bark such as cinnamon, pine, cedar, and spruce are also grounding.

5. Wearing grounding colors such as reds, browns, and deep earth tones also feel grounding.

For more help with grounding, or healing on any level, professional, guided healing sessions may be just what you need. Learn more about Spiritual Energy Healing here and schedule an appointment.

The Root of Healing

Have you thought about the root of healing? Just as dis-ease has a root cause, so does healing have a root – one that penetrates deeply into earth energy, stimulating the core vibration of healing.

Long ago, before medical doctors and modern medicine, synthetic drugs, and the “sickness” industry, there was a natural way to be well. This natural way connected us to our mother – Mother Earth – in such a way that relied more on an understanding of vibrations, rhythms, cycles, and harmony. People ate what was in season, harvested or grown without chemicals. They also offered daily gratitude and blessings for their abundance, paying attention to ways to replenish what was taken from the earth to ensure a return of abundance. IT ALL MATTERS. Whether we’re talking about health and healing, or a way to live with a smaller footprint on the planet, we can embrace the ideas known as Shamanism.

What is Shamanism?

Old texts and tradition in the study of Shamanism focus on an initiation of suffering. The path of suffering is very personal. Whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, suffering may lead people  further into the depths of despair and disease – arthritis, heart disease, pain, skin rashes, autoimmune diseases, and even cancer may come about as a result of suffering. Those who choose to work through their suffering may discover the root of healing – an opportunity to change their perspective, or overcome their pain.

Universal Shamanism is a practice that can easily become incorporated into any lifestyle. It’s not a religion, and doesn’t conflict with religious beliefs. I like to think of it as a return to nature, and to the root of healing. Shamanism includes a relationship with nature, an awareness of subtleties in the physical body, a connection to Spirit, and a willingness to let go.

The Root of Healing

When dis-ease appears in our lives, we may tend to focus all our thoughts and energies on “fixing” the problem. You might say it’s a cultural phenomenon promoted through the development and strong influences of the pharmaceutical industry. An ointment, drug, surgical removal, or invasive treatment seems to be what’s on the list for dealing with sickness. However, true healing – the root of healing – comes from deep within the core of one’s self. It feels grounding, and choices to become well, and to thrive with vitality, are not based on fear, but rather on feeling empowered and in alignment with nature.

Our Shamanic Apprentice program helps deepen one’s awareness of self – becoming more present in one’s physical body. In fact, the first series of workshops is completely focused on Personal Energy.

Learn more about Shamanism and join us for our Shamanic Apprentice program. We include practices and exercises to improve your relationship with yourself, with nature, and with Spirit. The first series culminates in a community gathering around the Autumnal Equinox. Register for the entire series so you’ll be included in the journey.
