7 Power Thoughts for Living More Intently


Do you want more joy?

Do you want to feel empowered, inspired, authentic and whole?

I know I do! Many of us are looking for more ways to find true north, to find are true place and purpose in the world. But more importantly many of us are looking for ways to actually feel in the flow of living.

I have a few power thoughts for you to contemplate. A few little seeds of truth that can help you activate your innate goodness. When you begin to use these action steps you will fall into the flow, live on purpose, and make daily steps to living intently.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again… we are all telling an energetic story! Our energetic story is our views of the world, and how we play in it. The idea of being authentic seems to come up a lot in the “new age”, self-help and metaphysical world… for some of us it may sound like fluff! But what we are actually talking about is being conscious and aware of what our intention is!

Okay so here we go!

  1. Are you focused on your health and wellbeing?

Your body is always talking to you! Isn’t that a fun idea? Whatever you are dealing with physically is the accumulated history of your energetic story, your perspective of the world. When you live life completely cut off from your inner voice, your intuition, you being to give up ownership of your body.

Have you been dealing with any physical issues?

Any illness, pain or discomfort?

Your disease is a message waiting to be heard. So listen. Just stop for a moment and listen.

Ask yourself: If my disease is a metaphor what does it represent?

Feed yourself good foods. Exercise. Get plenty of sleep. Drink water. Do not feel guilty when you fall off track. Believe me I love potato chips and cookies. When we look at food like the enemy then our intention becomes: Whatever I eat is going to deplete me. Bless your cookie baby!

  1. How are you taking action?

Inaction is passive living. When you live passively you are telling the Universe, and all the other things you are linked into… do what you want with me because I’m not in control. Be clear about what you are doing, and what you are not doing.

If it’s not yes, then it’s no! Wow. Now you can take action. Stop struggling with maybe. Stop struggling with indecisiveness. When you are indecisive you are leaking out your power everywhere.

Ask yourself: Why am I afraid to take action? What do I have to lose? How can I take ownership of my life now?

Guilt is not welcomed here. Don’t do it for a second. So what… you haven’t been taking the reins for a while. Now you can. The present moment is your place of power. Look at your past inaction is a gathering period. You were in fear of something before, but remind yourself: Fear usually tells us we are getting closer to something good.

  1. Do you choose positive thoughts?

Negative self-talk is a pandemic. Thinking negatively seems to be in vogue, everyone just accepts it as the way it is. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Really! You do not have to tell yourself negative things. In fact you’ve probably been telling yourself negative things without even knowing it.

So what happens if you change your inner dialogue to something positive?

Have you ever tried it?

What does it feel like when you say something negative to yourself?

How does it feel in your body?

What happens to your mood?

What happens to your energy?

What happens to your digestive system?

Now say something positive.

How does that feel? What changed?

You don’t have to believe it right away. Talk nicely to yourself. Think of your mind, your spirit, and your empowered self, like a little, feisty black cat. You have to lure it in, talk sweetly to it, and give it a treat and a good rubdown. If you yell it at, it’s going to scratch you and run away.

I find my negative self-talk comes in and goes out in a flash. I usually catch my negative thoughts right at the end. And then I think… Wow, Shaheen you really are doing a number on yourself now. But I turn it back around when I can. For every negative thing I say, I replace it with two positive things. It feels so good.

Try it!

  1. Are you organized?

Your home is an out picturing of your inner world. Your stuff represents your thoughts, and where you are placing your mental energy.

What are you surrounding yourself with?

How many piles of things are you leaving unattended?

What responsibilities are falling by the wayside?

Clutter, and stuff are distractions. They are pockets of unintentional energy. We want to be on purpose, we want to align with an intention. Look at your piles of stuff and rather than be brought down by them, view them as found currency. Work through it, release it and free it up for a better energetic investment.

Everything you own has a piece of your energy in it. Chew on that for a bit. Then spit it out.

  1. Do you honor the imperfect?

Perfect is never really perfected, plain and simple. Wabi-sabi is the Japanese view of honoring the imperfect. When things are imperfect they have character. They feel personal and filled with life.

Bless the imperfect. Find beauty in the things that just seem to be a little off. Look at the bark of a tree. It is not perfect. It has knots, bumps and discolorations. But it feels on purpose. It is intentional. It is guided by the deeper pulse of the Universe. Imperfect is art in action.

What are you trying to make perfect?

How is perfection holding you back?

Usually ideas of perfection are really fear in disguise. The fear to move forward. The fear to fail. The fear to be right. The fear to actually have to do something!

  1. Are you forming your own opinions?

Opinions are swirling through the air like dirt particles. Opinions aren’t necessarily bad, they’re is just an overabundance of them. Really we use opinions as a way to make things relative so that we can comprehend them. But you can have your own opinion.

Our heads are filled with the voices of so many other people. And even more insane is that we try to listen to all of those other voices, ignoring our own. Your voice, your idea, your voice of the world is valid.

Ask yourself:

What do I really think?

What do I really feel?

How does this go against the grain of the other thinkers in my life?

Why am I listening to them, and not myself?

When you free your spirit from the opinions of others you begin to float. Life is more vibrant. You may find yourself more colorful, and a bit eccentric. Gosh, the way we would live if we didn’t think anyone was watching.

  1. Do you love what you are doing?

Are you in a job, relationship, situation, or pattern of thinking that makes you unhappy?

Why are you doing it?

Maybe look at the other power thoughts above to answer that question.

Relationships and jobs are the two biggest pain points in people’s lives. We tend to bleed out our power into things that make us feel completely unhappy. But you are meant to be happy. That is your right that is the law of the Universe.

Remember, if it isn’t a yes, then it is a no! Say no when you really mean no. Don’t say yes out of fear, or guilt, or responsibility. You do not have to justify yourself.

Just ask yourself: Does this feed my spirit? If not, move along!

To all the Gypsies

My head and heart have been filled with so many things. Shadows and glimmers of light, blooming into stories. There is something in the air that hints at change. I see it outwardly… a big move coming, and a chance to see my life from a different vantage point. It is empowering to take a step forward into the unknown, and closer to the life that feels congruent with my spirit.

In some ways I feel like I am finally learning to dance, and yet I am still learning from my own inner monsters… but isn’t that the journey we are all on? For now I see a few things clearly. The moment to moment just makes sense, as long as I don’t think too much about it. “Just be”, That’s what I hear in my heart.

Here is to new life, and new adventures. I am opening myself up to the good things. I am taking time to let myself be with love, and light. To be with my dreams, and my goals. I know there is a lot of magic still to be found.

Now that all these changes are happening I have to honor when I can and cant do things. I need to honor when there is no need to write, and jump at the chance to explore a new idea. It doesn’t always make sense on the outside. But life isn’t about making sense to the outside world… it’s about making sense to yourself.

My prayer is that I can learn to dance, to move and grind with all the things that live inside, and all the things that the Universe is sending my way. The more open, the more humble, and the more grateful I am the more magic I seem to find. I guess that is grace. I affirm grace in this moment, in each moment.

Take a moment to feel the grace inside of you. Take a moment to affirm grace. Be beautiful, and be brace. Most of all spread your love to the world… there is so much need for this right now. It is so easy to forget that!

Sending love to all the Gypsies out there.


Five Keys to Empowering Yourself with Love

I have been contemplating this idea of self-love more. It’s so simple, and yet so hard to attain. Really being able to look yourself in the eye, and say… I love you. I love you, your flaws, your perfections, your failures, and your victories. It can be so difficult to really see yourself in all those phases, and still really appreciate who, and what you are.

I know I struggle with this. I know you struggle with it. We all do. It’s something that we feel at one time or another. Some of us daily. Some of us feel the struggle of self-love in waves. There are things that help make self-love easier, and other things will spiral it out of control and turn all our pain into very real monsters.

Here are 5 keys to help you on your journey to connecting and honoring yourself more!

Key Number One: Stay Committed to Yourself.

Regardless of how low you feel, or how lost you may seem; your commitment to yourself will be the lantern in the darkness. The simple willingness to uphold yourself, to listen to yourself, to do what is best for yourself… will put you in the right situations!

It isn’t always easy to stay committed to yourself. Sometimes you will let down your guard, casting yourself into something that you know wont make you feel better. But you have to try don’t you? Because you are brave and strong… and that’s how you learn!

Just stay strong! Hang on with all your might.

Key Number Two: Allow Yourself to Be Dark

The darkness is part of you. Don’t hide from your shadow, don’t run from it, and don’t be afraid of it. It isn’t your enemy. It is your friend. Your shadow allows you to learn so much about who you are, what you’re made of and how much you can, and will take!

Whenever you feel dark, just dance! Dance to whatever rhythm you feel. Whatever song you hear playing. Just close your eyes and let go to the beat of it all!

That is one of the best ways to learn to love yourself. If you trust yourself to dance you will feel sexier, stronger, more vibrant. You will seduce the dark! 

Key Number Three: Learn to Say No

If you don’t like it… don’t do it! Do not feel responsible for anyone else if it isn’t for your best wellbeing. We spend so much time saying yes to things that we don’t really want to do. We feel guilted into living life a certain way.

I always ask myself: does this feed my spirit, or does it defeat my spirit?

If it doesn’t feed your spirit then you should just move on to the next thing! Don’t get stuck in the mindset that if you say no, you will miss out on something. You don’t miss out on opportunities that are good for you, by saying no to things that feel wrong.

In this big, beautiful Universe… all you have to do to get what you want and need is be you, love you, and smile!

Key Number Four: Daily Life Can Be Exciting

Every single day can be awesome. It can be filled with great things. Don’t wait your whole life for the right person, the right place, the right time… do it now. Live it now. Don’t only do what you love when everything else is “taken care of”. Don’t live your life for vacation, retirement, or the weekends.

This moment right now is perfect! You are beautiful enough to shine right now. So go out there and say what you need to say. Start planting the seeds of your dreams. And water them with lots of love. Because the truth is… you have time to love yourself!

Each moment you spend on anything… you should first take a second to love yourself. It’s easy to forget. But it’s a powerful affirmation, and catalyst of change.

Key Number Five: Self-Love is Self-Healing

You may not always feel strong. You may feel like you are losing a battle with something… it creeps into us now and again! You may not have the energy to do what you want, or what you need. But find just a little, tiny space to be good to yourself.

Because when you are good to yourself… you will also begin to heal yourself. You will heal yourself of all the pain, the upset, the damage, the loss… all the things that make you feel fragmented will begin to heal.

Some things will take longer than others. But it is all rooted in your belief. And your commitment to yourself… remember that!

Here are a few prompts for you. Post, comment or tweet your reply with #SelfLoveFest

It’s February… Love is in the Air!

Love is something that comes up so often in my sessions, and even in my personal life with friends and family. There is this constant conversation happening among people about how to love, when to love, where to find love, how to keep love, and on and on it goes. It’s all pretty power, pretty beautiful, and some times heavy!

Something that is usually left out of the conversation is self-love. I know… crazy right! We want love from other people, we want to give love to other people… but we struggle to love ourselves. But when you begin to look at self-love, you will find a pivotal point of power. 

What does that mean?

Well, when you want something in your life (like love, acceptance and romance) you have to also practice those things. And the best way to do that is to cultivate a space in your own life for you to give to yourself.

You see, self-love is not selfish it is actually the opposite. When you practice self-love you are filling yourself up with vibrant, beautiful energy, and you are planting a seed of intention, to not only give love, but to receive love, to feel love, and to live in love. That seed of intention will take root, sprout and blossom into the world, creating a powerful space for you to share the sweet nectar of love with others.

Isn’t it amazing how simple that is? By loving yourself, you begin to thrive… growing into an empowered person. Growing into an authentic person. And by simply being you, in a state of love (our natural state), you can give unconditional love to everyone else.

Because without self-love you have no acceptance, and without acceptance of yourself you begin to have limits, and with limits comes your personal edge… and that edge will be tested so many times by people and situations in your life. If you make self-love one of your truths, then nothing can shake you when your edge creeps up to challenge you!

Here are a few affirmative questions to ask yourself throughout the month!

It would be powerful to journal with these questions, or create affirmations from them.

  1. What self-loving act do you do every day?
  2. Stand in front of the mirror. What do you love most about your face? Name as many as you wish.
  3. What food when you eat it feels like an act of self-love?

Join in the Self-Love Fest of February!

How to Spiritually Cleanse Another Person

I want to talk about psychic and spiritual cleansing for another individual. This is a subject that has come up a lot in recent emails, and comments so I think it is important to address it here.

When working for other people in a psychic/spiritual sense there are many layers to the process because you are working with energy, more specifically, the energy surrounding the individual. In order to have a truly solid working the person should be open, and receptive to the cleansing process. If they aren’t open to the process, then they most likely aren’t ready to release whatever is around them.

This does not mean that a cleansing can’t be performed. On some level their higher self may be receptive to this wave of good energy, and willing to let it in. But when people are in psychic trauma they usually oppose whatever has their best interest in mind. So if you are performing a cleansing on someone who isn’t aware of this, you must send it out with the intention that they will receive the good energy if they would like!

With all rituals you are trying to create an energetic and conscious shift through the use of symbolic language and concentrated energy… this can be done in many ways, some simple, and some elaborate. But the process of spiritually cleansing another person can be very simple. All you will need are a few tools of intention.

To begin we will work with a few candles, as they are powerful forms of concentrated and focused energy used by many religions and paths throughout history, and the world! Read more about candle’s here!

You will choose a candle that represents the person being cleansed. This candle is often called an, Astral candle, it represent the person on an energetic level. Often times this candle will be in the color associated to their astrological sign. You can find this information below.

You will need a black, or white candle. This candle will be the magnet that attracts and holds whatever negative energy and attachments are connected to the person being cleansed. This is essential a psychic vacuum, much like an egg is used in spiritual cleansing. Read about Limpia with an Egg here.

You will also need a blue, or pink candle. This candle will be filled with an intention of love, positive energy, health and Universal blessing. Whenever you are performing a spiritual cleansing you want to fill the spaces that are cleared away with good energy! Move something in time and space, and something else must take its place. 

Gather together your 3 candles, along with sea salt, spring water, sweetly scented incense, and a lighter. You can also have a piece of paper with the persons name written on it, or a photograph of them. This is an energetic connection to them to help focus your intention.

Find a space where you will not be disturbed. Place all of your tools of intention on a table, tray or in one area of the ground. Make sure you have proper candleholders, a pitcher of water nearby for accidents, and that nothing will be in the way of the candles as they burn. You may want to place them on a plate so you can easily move them to burn after the cleansing.

When you are ready to begin find a seated position on the floor. Close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply. Let your breath become rhythmic… in and out. Feeling your belly expand, rise, and then fall. Lulling you deeper into a meditative state.

Allow your mind to unwind. Your thoughts to disentangle. Relax your feet, your legs, your hips, and your core. Relax your chest, your shoulders, neck and arms. Let your head fall down between your shoulder blades. Let it hang for a few moments just feeling a good stretch. Keep breathing. Keeping your rhythm.

Now begin to visualize yourself being surrounded by a beautiful bubble of white light. See it glow brightly, growing around you and forming a beautiful protective barrier. This is the white light of the Universe surrounding you in protection.

Around this white light visualize a beautiful blue light. This blue light glows brightly with a gentle hue that evokes a feeling of love, and healing. This is the healing light of the Universe adding to your intention.

Now you can begin your intention for cleansing.

Mix the sea salt, and spring water together. This is a powerful cleansing agent. Sprinkle the salt water around yourself, and around the space. Sprinkle it over the candles, and the other tools you have gathered.

Now light the incense. Let the smoke waft around the space, and around your body. Let it lift the energy in the air, and create an atmosphere of power, and sacred healing. Take your 3 candles and waft them through the smoke of the incense to release any stray energy held within.

Hold in your hands the first candle, the astral candle. Wash it gently with salt water, allowing it to cleanse and bless the candle. Now with the candle held in your palms begin to concentrate and visualize the person begin cleansed. Think of them as they are now. Their personality, their physical characteristics, their voice, their movement. Their mental and emotional state. Intend that this candle represent whomever you are cleansing.

Place the candleholder overtop of the photo/paper with their name on it. Now light the candle in the holder and say:

I affirm that this light is (name the person).

Now hold in your hands the second candle, either black or white. Wash it with salt water. With the candle in your palms begin to focus on the person being cleansed. Focus on their condition. See all the pain, the struggle, the sorrow, the attachments and limiting energies going into the candle. Intend that the candle is a magnet that attracts and absorbs the heavy energy surrounding whomever you are cleansing.

Light this candle from the astral candle. As the flame of the astral candle lights the flame of the banishing candle, see it as transference of negative energy. From the person you are cleansing, to the candle! Now place it in the holder and say:

As this candle burns down, so does the negative energy surrounding (name the person).

Take the last candle in your hand, blue or pink. Wash it with salt water. Hold it in your palms and visualize it glowing with a beautiful light filled with love, blessing, and healing and positive energy. See this candle as a beacon of blessing, shinning into the life of the person being cleansed. 

Light this candle in the flame of the astral candle. See this as a new life for the person. As the flame burns brightly, say:

I intend that as this flame burns bright it fills the life of (name the person) with love, happiness, healing, positive energy and blessing. This is the light of the Universe smiling upon him or her.

Take some time to allow the candles to burn, and just breathe into your intention. Continue to visualize the power behind the candles. See the person being released of all negative energy, and being blessed. Visualize them being surrounded by the white light of protection, and the blue light of healing.

Now say a prayer, silently or out loud:

This cleansing session is for the highest good of (name the person). This intention is his or hers to freely accept.

Allow the candles to completely burn down. If, for some reason, you have to extinguish them before they can burn down, do it with a snuffer! Place the remaining stubs in a paper bag, sprinkle sea salt over it, and dispose of them in the trash.

This spiritual and psychic cleansing ceremony can be used for another person, or you can use it for yourself. The choice is yours. Just change the wording accordingly. Make sure you feel confident about performing a cleansing like this. Listen to your intuition, and evaluate your own energy levels!

List of Astral Candle Colors:

This is a general source of colors. Trust your intuition with this as well. If the person has a favorite color, use that. If you don’t know their zodiac sign, or you cannot obtain that color candle use white.

Egg Cleansing for the Home

Spiritual cleansing, or “Limpia” with an egg is an old, and powerful form of spiritual cleansing. It is very popular in Latin folk-magic, but has its roots in many cultures. You can read more about self-cleansing with an egg, here!

Lets take this wonderful technique a step further and spiritually cleanse the home. Spiritually cleansing of the home is very important because your home is a reflection of your inner world, and as it becomes tainted by negative and lower level vibrations you become heavier and more lost in the fog. Take ownership of your space and make it sacred, as it should be!

To begin gather one large fresh egg. This egg should be free-range, and organic. It should be room temperature before you begin. Also gather a glass of fresh spring water, a sage smudge or sweet incense, and a white or pink candle.

Wash the egg in a mixture of salt water, and lemon juice. This ensures that the egg is not holding onto stray energies before the session.

Put yourself in a relaxed state. Make sure no one is in the home that will disturb you.

Hold the egg in your hand. Saying a prayer or affirmation of cleansing and peace. Begin at the entrance of the home, and waft the egg around each corner of the room, around the entrances, doorways and windows. Around any clutter, heavy furniture, and places that feel stagnant.

Move through the entire house, one room to the next. Continue to focus on your intention of cleansing the home. Ask for blessing and guidance from the Universe. And trust your intuition about where to go.

Make sure to focus on openings of any kind. Places that is cluttered, stagnant or dark, such as closets or cabinets. And any rooms that have a particularly heavy feeling, or some kind of history that you want to work through.

The egg is essentially a psychic vacuum that is picking up, and holding any unwanted energy present in the space.

When you are finished you can break the egg into the cup of water. Allowing the contents of the egg to settle. At this time it is good to go through each room with the sage smudge, or incense stick. Letting it waft into all the same places as the egg.

This will add an extra layer of cleansing. And will ensure the space is blessed with positive vibration.

Once I have done this I like to light a white or pink candle in the hearth, or center of the home, or in each room. This candle represents the light of the Universe, and blessings of love filling the space of the negativity that has been released. Allow the candle to safely burn down.

Another element I like to add to the process is placing a bouquet of fresh white flowers in each room.

Once the cleansing session is finished you can observer the yoke of the egg for signs of the energy that was removed from the space. Think of this like looking at clouds in the sky. What shapes have formed? How do they make you feel? What do they seem to represent.

To dispose of the egg after interpreting the yoke, dumb the contents into the toilet and flush. Or place into a running stream off of your property. If you haven’t broken the egg place in a paper bag in the trash off of your property.

Visit this article for more information about interpreting the yoke. 

Do this process as often as you like. I suggest doing a home cleansing at least once a month, or ideally once a week. And whenever there is any kind of altercation, misfortune, or illness in the space.

Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

If you would like me to interpret the patterns formed by your egg. Please follow the steps, break the yoke into a cup of water and take several pictures. Make sure to photograph the results in good light, from a few different angles. You can email me the photos. Purchase your egg interpretation here.

Exploring the Aura

Originally Appeared in Soul Path Magazine August 2014

There is something so exciting and beautiful about seeing someone’s aura blooming, growing and pulsating in front of you. It’s a lightshow of rainbow colors that reflect the person’s inner world, their mood, emotions, and the things they are pulling and pushing in and out of their lives.

The aura is the unique energetic story each and every person is telling.

The aura is composed of many layers of energy, constantly moving and cycling, much like a wheel. Some energies cycle out quickly, and others linger for an extended amount of time. When energy starts to take on a cyclical pattern then it represents something that is being held onto, a lesson to be learned, or a particular energy that you are in need of.

The aura reflects our every thought, feeling, and experience. It will change accordingly. The most telling thing about the aura is the texture and color that are emanating from it. When you are aware of this you can learn a lot about a person, or situation.

Often times the aura knows the truth about a person or situation before you consciously do.

The chakra system (the 7 main energy centers of the body) is made up of the seven colors of the rainbow. Each chakra dictates a different experience, and the energy of that chakra loops together and creates the aura. If you are experiencing a block in a specific chakra, that will appear in the aura.

Not only does the aura reflect the chakras system, it also reflects all the things you encounter throughout your day, and your life as a whole. The aura is your energetic story, and with that story is your energetic history.

You may find yourself naturally experiencing other people’s auras. It can be very subtle such as a tingly feeling when you are very close to a person, or maybe you’ve experienced the sudden sensation of coming up against a wall when interacting with a person… this is their aura shielding you out.

It’s also very common to see a person’s aura when they are speaking in front of you, especially if there is a dark background behind them, or something neutral. When people are excited their aura will spike and shoot off energy much like fireworks. If someone is telling you a lie their aura will shrink, and become somewhat jagged.

Learning to Work With the Aura

You can work with the colors of your aura, and the chakras to create change in your life. Each color has a unique energetic vibration, and that vibration is the makeup of your aura. If you can perceive the color, you can decode the energy at work and begin to use it for your highest good.

I suggest spending a few minutes throughout the day checking in with your energy field. When you wake up in the morning close your eyes, take a few deep breathes, and let a color fill your mind. You may ask yourself, “What color am I right now?” The answer will reveal the energetic state you are in.

This is beneficial for you because it allows you to align with the Universe and with your intention. You may find that your aura is muddy colored, dull and a little gray. Which would indicate that you are feeling off, closed down, and withdrawn. This wouldn’t be an ideal energy if you were about to give a major presentation for your company.

Do this throughout the day!

Another technique is to notice what colors are jumping out at you throughout the day, or over a week. Is there a particular color you are drawn to? Or that you keep noticing at random? This is your higher self trying to get your attention, and integrate that energy into your life.

This is very noticeable in a person’s wardrobe. Everyone has their color that they look great in, but we all go through phases where we are drawn to a certain color of clothing. This is your energy field trying to regulate itself. You may look horrible in purple, or typically you avoid it in your wardrobe, but lately you’ve been buying purple clothing!

Why? Because you need a boost in your spiritual vibration, you need to tap into your intuitive self, and trust in your inner wisdom.

An Exercise to Actively Work with Aura Colors

Go to a hardware store, or a paint store and find the section of paint swatches. This is the Wonderland of colors!

Give yourself about 20 minutes and begin to brows the colors. Don’t force anything. Just look. Notice what you notice. See what colors jump out. You may find that you start with your favorite colors, but don’t get stuck there! Acknowledge all the colors.

As you go through this exercise, begin pulling out chips that speak to you. Don’t look at their names, or really investigate them closely just yet. Just let your impulse and intuition guide you.

When you have between 5-10 chips you are ready to go!

Take them home. Lay them out on a big table, or on the floor and begin grouping them. You may find that you have two main colors, or maybe you have one big group of colors.

Can you divide them into shades? Lights and darks? Different saturations?

Now being to look at the names. Are there any name themes? Do you see any dots connecting? What is the overall feeling? What word would you use to describe the collage of colors?

This is a reflection of where you are energetically, or what energy you need to pull into your life.

You can do this process as often as you like. It’s a fun way to connect with colors. It can be used for divination, much the same way you would use a deck of cards.

You can take the experience a step further by keeping the collage of colors somewhere you can look at them. You may stick them to a poster board or a corkboard. You may even decide that one color is so necessary that you want to paint a wall, or room that color!

As you follow this process you will become more sensitive to the energies around you.

Play with it and have fun!

What is Reiki?

Have you ever heard of Reiki? Or energetic healing? This is a powerful form of shifting and moving negative, limiting and stagnant energies around you to create change. This is one of the best tools in a light-workers tool kit.

What is Reiki

The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese ideograms. It can be broken down into two words the first being rei, which means the higher intelligence of the universe, or the spiritual source. This is the divine will of the universe or as some might say, the universal mind. This could be equated with God, or any other governing power. Ki, is the second portion of the word and it means primal and can be understood as primal healing energy. So connecting the two words together is primal healing energy directed spiritually, or as many like to say Reiki is universal light energy.

Reiki is a Japanese form of healing and relaxation therapy. It promotes stress reduction, healing and relaxation on many levels and to varying degrees. The general purpose of Reiki is to promote and create wellbeing in people. At the core of Reiki is a method of energy work that can help to release a person from negative bonds and lead them to a path of least resistance and miraculous opportunities.

Reiki healing is a form of energy work which is channeled through a practitioner and to the receiver who is in need of healing. In the simplest terms Reiki is pure energy. We are also pure energy. Our entire being is a composed of different energies working and reacting with each other… our bodies are the denest part of our being which is why energetic imbalances manifest as illness. Reiki works to restore our energy to its highest form of good.

To understand the concepts of energy direct your focus to a natural phenomenon like the Sun. Even tough we cannot see the energy from the sun we can feel it as heat. The same is true when receiving Reiki, you will usually feel the energy working on your body as a tingling or heat, which will emanate from the palms of the healer. The heat from the sun much like Reiki creates a phenomenon called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process by which plants and organisms transform light energy into carbohydrates and oxygen. This concept parallels to the process of Reiki in a similar way.

How Reiki Works

In a healing session the body is sent Reiki energy and that energy is taken in by the body and sent throughout to various organs, cells and tissues and even portions of your aura that are in need of healing. The negative energy or dis-ease undergoes a transformation which is activated by the Reiki energy and that transformation works to reverse all ill effects. There is a basic nature of Reiki, it works to heal and it cannot do harm to the receiver.

As I mentioned before we are all composed of many different levels of energy, that are interacting with each other and with the environment in which we are in. This energy that surrounds our densest layer ( our body) is called the aura. The chakras also exist in this place as well. We accumulate different and conflicting energies in our bodies which become the seeds to our illnesses and dis-ease.The energy that creates the composition of our aura is affected by our thoughts, actions and words. There are other factors that play into that health of the bodies such as the people we surround ourselves with, the things we eat, the amount of sleep we get and even the clothing that we wear.

Reiki works to reverse, neutralize and transform ill effects which have worked their way into our beings. Whether we are experiencing disharmony in our body, mind or spirit, the Reiki will know where to go… you don’t even have to be conscious of it for it to work. Reiki has an intelligence of its own. The great thing about Reiki is that it is attracted to the places that is in need  of healing and works accordingly.

“A healer provides you the space and opportunity to heal yourself. You alone make the choice to allow healing to take place.” –Shaheen
