How Important is it to Make Time for Stillness?

Tapping into your intuition and following your psychic nudges begins with stillness! As we are creating sacred space in our lives it becomes more and more important to stop and listen… listen to the voice inside of your, the dialogue running through your head, and the worn-out thoughts, beliefs and ideas you are replaying.

Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed, even frustrated by the amount of things running through your head. I know I experience this feeling of exhaustion from time to time… sometimes its brought on with good intentions. I am sitting there just channeling some sort of creative idea or inspiration and then I keel over in defeat because the amount of energy it takes to think about it all is so overwhelming… and then I remember… stillness!

You will never really hear all the beautiful things your spirit is trying to tell you until you stop and listen!

So many of us want answers about our lives. We are wondering what’s next. Where we are going. How life is going to be. How we are going to solve our problems. Fix our mistakes. Right our wrongs. Or achieve our dreams.

You know you’ve been asking the Universe these big questions. Talk, talk, talk… now listen!

The Universe can never solve your problems if you don’t shut up and listen!

Sometimes the answers are subtle; sometimes they are loud and clear. Sometimes they will be spelled out for you. You may get hit with a sudden feeling of inspiration. You may hear a song, or a phrase that just hits the spot.

These things come when you make space for them.

A few ways you can do this:

  1. Spend a few minutes daily in meditation. This can be done before you begin your day, or just when you end it.
  1. Prayer is often us asking for guidance, but the heart of prayer… the real secret is to stop and listen. When feelings do you get. What vibration is firing through you as you are communicating with the Divine?
  1. It’s all about staying in motion. Feel yourself move, feel your body. Get out of your head and. Let your mind, body and spirit connect through exercise, yoga or even a long walk. I love doing yoga because I have to be present when I am in a pose. I have to listen to my body and my breath. Usually the places where I hold tension in my body give me insight into where I am being rigid in my life. 
  1. Enjoy a warm cup of tea. Let yourself smell all the lovely aromas, and feel the steam open up your head. Take a sip and swirl the liquid around your tongue. Actually taste the tea (or whatever you’re drinking). This will allow you to be present, to observe whatever is happening in that moment. And it’s so soothing!
  1. Take a nice long bath and let the tension of your day melt from your body. Don’t rush or worry. You are in this moment relaxing. Let the steam and the bubbles and all the delicious scents clear your head and heart. Sing and smile and close your eyes. Some of the best revelations come in a warm bath. 
  1. Spend more times with your pets. These spirit babies are gifts from the Universe sent here to add unconditional love and understanding to your life. They help to transmute negative energy and turn into in to positive and productive energy. When you connect with the pure feelings of love you link into your intuitive self.
  1. Take time to listen to good, uplifting music. Let the word and sounds enter you. Sing along or just close your eyes and drift away. Music isn’t meant to be background noise. It’s meant to be a doorway to another world where you can feel and experience something inside of your, or something more expansive than you. Open up and let go for a while.

As you move through the levels of stillness you are creating internal sacred space. Giving yourself this space allows you to tap into all of your wisdom. This is really the heart of spirituality. Finding center and learning to live from that place is the most pure intention.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleaning and Protection: When Should You Spiritually Cleanse Your Home?

Spiritual hygiene feeds into the energetic story you are telling. If you practice good spiritual hygiene, you will add positive energy and abundance to your life. Paths will begin to open, and opportunities will fall in your life.

But spiritual cleansing is for more than just your body… it is for your home as well! Creating a high vibration in the home will add to your overall experience. Your home is a reflection of you. If you take care if it, then it will take care of you!

When should you spiritually cleanse your home?

1. When you first move in.

Whenever you first move into a space you should spiritually cleanse it. You should bless the space and remove any negative or stagnant energy that may be lingering in the space. Previous residents will leave their unique vibration on the space, and that vibration may not feed into the experience you are trying to have. Shifting this energy, and clearing the slate will empower you and the life you are beginning to lead in the new space.

2. When there is a fight or altercation.

It is especially important to clear the air after an intense fight or argument. Altercations in the home taint the atmosphere and leave an imprint on the delicate energy field that surrounds your home. If this is left unattended it can grow into a powerful force that influences your mood, and the interactions you have in the space. Do you have a room, or space in your home that always seems to instigate a fight? It’s time to clear the air!

3. When Tragedy has struck.

If there has been a tragedy in the home you should absolutely perform a cleansing. This will help to move the healing process along faster. A tragedy could be anything from a loss of a loved one, to a financial set back. Adding this positive vibration to the mix will ensure that you make it through trying times with grace.

4. When changes are being made.

Any time you are making change in the home such as construction, or moving things around, or downsizing you should perform some small act of cleansing. This will help things settle and patch up any psychic holes that may ensue from moving things around. Energy is like dust. If things are ruffled up… forgotten energies may show up!

5. When someone moves in or moves out.

Always, always, always do a cleansing when someone moves in or out of the space. This will help their energetic thumbprint align with, or disconnect from the space. Remember, your home is a living energetic being just like you. Everything in the space, or that comes in contact with the space weaves into the energetic structure. Sometimes adding or taking something away will shake things up and cause a feeling of chaos. This usually settles in time, but with a little spiritual cleansing, things will equalize much faster.

6. After illness has been in the household.

Illness vibrates at a low level. When illness falls upon your home it will weaken the vibration and pull things downward. To counteract this you should lift the spirits of the space. This often helps the healing process along faster. This can be a major illness, or a minor cold!

7. When someone dies.

Again, when someone leaves/dies you want to disconnect their energy from the energetic vibration of the space. Don’t fear that you are forgetting about them, or keeping their spirit from visiting… this process helps to bring healing to the space and the people the live in it. When we are grieving there is a need to look forward. If you keep yourself in old worn-out energy patterns you begin limiting yourself, and giving away abundant energy that could be invested in more important dreams and goals.

8. After the winter.

Winter is time of rest and recuperation. Though it can turn into stagnation. The energy in your home will begin to get stuffy and cluttered though the winter. Doing a major “energetic” spring-cleaning will propel things forward into full bloom! Where do you think spring-cleaning came from! Out with the old and in with the new!

Stay tuned for more tips on spiritual cleanings in the home! We will learn more about creating beautiful sacred space!

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Spiritual Cleansing After a Bad Break-up Part Two

Once you’ve worked through the mental and emotional portion of your break-up you can begin taking care of yourself again. Creating a spiritual cleansing routine will be a powerful way to shift your energy, and will procure the longevity of your positive hard work!

Try some of the tips on this list. Use all of them, or the ones that speak to you!

  1. Restore your energetic state with a healing session. After you’ve experienced any kind of trauma, or when dealing with heavy emotions you should work with an energy worker to cleanse, clear and restore your energy. Our natural state of being is happy and healthy! This can be done through Reiki, or some other modality of energy work. Reiki is a powerful tool because it shifts and mends energy on all levels to achieve a balanced state. Everyone could use an energy session, so now is the time to treat yourself! Read more about Reiki Healing.
  2. Take a spiritual cleansing bath. A spiritual cleansing bath releases debris from your aura and helps the emotional healing process happen faster. If you’ve just gone through a break-up you should do this everyday for a week (7 days). This will initially help ease and mend the loss, coupled with your positive mental/emotional work things will shine brighter much faster! After a week you can do it every other day or once every few days. Apple cider vinegar is really good for break-up baths. Read about Spiritual Cleansing Baths and Spiritual Cleansing Showers.
  3. Use rose water, or rose tea. Rose is a wonderful flower because its essence vibrates with love and healing. When used as a tea it will work from the inside out helping to repair your aura and attract positive influence. If used as a spray, rose water will help lift the atmosphere and the aura. This will attract lots of good people and energy into your life. Learn about Rose Water and Rose Tea (my two favorite things EVER).
  4. Create an empowerment plan. Do something affirmative and transformative for yourself. Begin taking a yoga class once a week, or do a quick yoga route every morning. Make a list of affirmations to help shift your way of thinking to a more positive and proactive state. Meditative because when you take time for stillness the voices in your head that are all jumbled begin to disentangle and you find clarity! Any act that makes you feel uplifted, and helps you move toward your goals will help you change your energy for the better. You start to raise your vibration, eliminating unnecessary clutter and getting more of what you want!

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Protection Tea

In my personal practice I use tea for it’s therapeutic, medicinal and energetic properties. Herbs come from the earth and have a unique energy pattern that can be incorporated into our own to create dramatic shifts.

Recently I discussed how to use teas to repair the aura. Tea can also be used for energetic protection. Just like visualizing white light around you, these teas will activate an energetic barrier that strengthen and sustains your aura.

Ginger Tea

Ginger is a potent root that has a good kick of flavor. It’s used medicinally to help digestion and to jumpstart your immune system. Ginger makes a great base for most protection teas. Start with a good piece of fresh ginger root that you can grind into a teapot with some hot water.

When using ginger it’s good to start with a little and keep adding to it. Some people find it too strong in large doses. Use it sparingly.

Alone, ginger has a very grounding affect. It pulls the aura in tightly so that nothing is hanging out! And adds a good dense layer of energy around the outside boundaries.

For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, to 3 cups of spring water.

Ginger and Sage Tea 

Sage is another herb that has become a staple in spiritual cleansing and protection. Sage is best known for its ability to expel negative energy. When used as a tea, sage releases negative energy and fortifies the fibers of the aura.

When sage and ginger are combined it grounds and centers, which helps to keep a clear energy field and adds a boundary of very solid protection.

For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, one cup of sage leaves, to 3 cups of spring water.

Ginger and Cinnamon Tea 

Cinnamon is a fiery bark that carries a punch of energy. This tends to be a little more aggressive than the more grounded energy of ginger, but the two compliment each other well.

When used a tea, cinnamon will add heat to the Aura and create a shield of “Don’t Touch Me” energy! Add ginger to that mix and you have a double layer of protection. One that blazes bright and one that is very solid.

For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, 3 cinnamon sticks, to 3 cups of spring water.

For Any Tea

Let the tea steep for 5-10 minutes before drinking. As the tea steeps pray for divine light to bless the water. You can call on any form of Divinity you feel connected to.

A NOTE ON TEA

Experiment with the above combinations. Each herb could be used alone, or all together. These are just suggestions. Make sure to do your research before ingesting any herbal tea to see if you are allergic or if you have any health issues that may be affected by these.

I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice!

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

4 Reasons Why You Should Practice Spiritual Cleansing

Spiritual cleansing is the act of good energetic hygiene! Using the Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection you can begin shifting your vibration to something more positive and conducive to happiness!

  1. You are ALWAYS telling an energetic story! Your energetic story is the vibration that you are giving off. This vibration is a beacon that shines out into the Universe and magnetizes like vibrations to you. If you are unaware of the energetic story you are telling, then you are most likely attracting negative things into your life!
  2. Your state of being is the manifestation of the energetic story you are telling. Are you drained, tired, uninspired or completely stressed? Are you unhappy, unhealthy and feeling sluggish? Have you been experiencing loneliness, lack of love and friendship and dead-ends with love and work? This is the result of being unaware of the energy you are putting into the world!
  3. When you clear negative energy, you have to replace it with something positive. There is an energetic principle that states, “When something is moved in time and space, something else must take its place.” This means that once you clear your energy field of negative or stray energy, you must replace it with a better vibration. If you clear it away, but you don’t replace it with something else it will fill back up.
  4. Spiritual Cleansing can be easy! There are many, many ways to practice spiritual cleansing. The  benefits are awesome… and you can make it part of your daily routine. From taking a bath, to using crystals, to practicing a little visualization. It makes your whole life better… why not take the opportunity!

But do not fear… the Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection are, HERE! Use some of these wonderful techniques to shift and change the story you are telling, and to finally live the life you want.

If you are a DIY Mystic you will find numerous opportunities and ideas to change your vibration. But, if you need a little support you can set up an energetic cleansing session with me!

This could be the cause of unhappiness, failed ventures, and lack of motivation, or love… or whatever else you keep reaching for, but never get your hands on.

Do you want to be happy? Do you want to manifest the life you want?

When you know your energetic story, you can consciously create the things you desire.

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
