Protection

Spiritual Basics ~ Protection

Protection ~ What is it?
In general protection is the act of keeping oneself, another or something safe from being harmed or damaged.  In a spiritual sense the concept is the same however it is more specific to be the safeguarding of one’s energy fields in order to keep their energy clear of others energy and/or negative influences.

Energy which is not our own, and less that positive, can influence us causing stress, imbalance, mood swings, tiredness, lack of confidence, illness, in general it depletes their energy field leaving us without sustenance we need even for general living.

Negative energy can be picked up from an environment,  others we interact with or it can even by collected when passing by strangers whom our energy field connects or interacts with, this especially happens when our energy centres are “open”.

Negative energy is created via:

  • Destructive emotions (such as hate, jealousy, anger, fear)
  • Victim, pessimistic and negative attitudes
  • Hostile environments (Arguments, disagreements)
  • Controlling people or environments
  • Misuse of sex, drugs or alcohol
  • Chaos and disorder

Just as there are people on the earth plane who are positive and negative so too are there in the Spirit.

In the spirit plane there are light beings who assist and guide us, yet on the other hand there are “dark” beings who are mischievous and like to cause confusion and chaos.

These are often spirits who are either not aware that they have passed over or who are not yet ready to leave the earth plane, therefore they are drawn to those with vibration with light and will therefore attach themselves to such people.

 

How do I invoke protection?
There are many ways to ensure you are protected and it is important for you to chose one which suits and works for you.  Likening protection to a pair of shoes, there are some that will fit better than others.

Also just like shoes it is ideal to change and mix up the protection methods you are using.  The reason for this is when we regularly use a particular method we can become over familiar with it and become lax when implementing, thus loosing it’s potency.  Yet too our vibration changes and thus a different protection method is required.

Protection ideally becomes a ritual which is best done in the morning before you start your day, and can easily be done in bed before your get up or in the shower.  Until it becomes a habit I recommend adding a reminder in your phone or on your mirror.

Its important to know that protection may need “reapplying” during the day (and sometimes more than once) particularly when you know you are going to interact with someone who drains your energy.

Once you become familiar with what is your energy and what belongs to another you will be able to determine quite easily how often you need to top up your protection.  If having trouble you can simply use a pendulum to assist you.

EXERCISES

SLEEPING BAG
See (or feel) lying in front of you a deep blue sleeping bag made of fine silk thread, as you pick it up you notice how light it feels and that it changes to the appropriate colour you need for the day.

Open the bag and step into it slowly bringing it up over you, seeing it cover and hug to your body and feeling the sensation of its rich material cover your energy field.

Bring the bag up and over your head and as it does become aware that the opening has now fused keeping you and your energy safe from those you encounter during your day.

 

ENERGY BALL
See (or feel) in front of you a gigantic ball of bright light of colour, it may be the colours of the rainbow or perhaps a specific colour you are resonating with (preferably not white though).

Make your energy ball large enough that it encases your whole body and energy field (2cm’s around your physical).  See/feel the energy ball gently pulsating with pure energy and beckoning you towards it.

When you are ready step into the centre of the ball seeing and feeling it envelope your body and auric fields, sensing it not only putting you in a sphere of protection you also energising you inner force.

Surround the ball with a casing of crystal dust, adding an extra layer of protection for your day, and when you are ready bring your awareness back to the chair and room in which you are sitting.

 

GOD EVERYWHERE
Stand with your feet slightly apart and palms upright, bringing your focus to your breathing allowing yourself to relax and be in the present moment.  When you are ready, say:

“God above me, God below me, God beside me and God behind me, keep me safe and within your divine protection for the day. Namaste”

 

THE EGG
Close your eyes and take your focus to your solar plexus, allowing it to open slightly just enough to allow a stream of yellow light to flow, swirling around you forming an egg shaped cloud surrounding your physical and auric bodies.

Next see or feel pouring from the heavens above you a brilliant glow of pure white light, sending just the right amount to create a secondary stratum around the first egg of energy.

Now encase those two layers of energy with a shell which is made of a reflective material, perhaps hematite, gold or even a mirror which rebounds negative energy.  Sit allowing yourself to feel and see each layer at work, sensing the strength with each of them.

 

INVOKE THE ANGEL OF PROTECTION
Close your eyes and state out loud:

“Please Angel of Protection I need your help.  Please help me protect my energy fields, keeping my energy my own and clear of others energy.  Please surround my with your blessed light and help me vibrate with my own.”

 

REIKI SYMBOLS
For those who have undertaken Reiki II training, draw a large Sei He Ki symbol, with the intention of protection and step into it, alternatively you can draw it over yourself.

When used in conjunction with Cho Ku Rei it increases the energy and purpose of the Sei He Ki.

 

CRYSTALS
Crystals are a wonderful tool to protect your energy field, I personally would not use them on their own yet in conjunction with any of the exercises above.

Common protection crystals:   Amber, Black Tourmaline, Hematite, Snowflake Obsidian or  Smokey Quartz

 

We use these exercises ourselves although we add a mirrored or reflective layer (such as hematite) with the purpose to reflect less than desirable energies back to the Universe for it to transmute and transcend.

Engage your RAS to manifest abundance!

With all the information around relating to abundance and manifestation very little is written about the RAS, which is interesting due to how critical it is in the manifesting process.  The RAS is a part of our biology, it isn’t in just some of us ~ it is within ALL of us, supporting the notion that we all have it within us to generate abundance

The Reticular Activating System (RAS) is located in our brain stem and therefore is a part of our mammalian brain, better known as our Limbic System.  The Limbic Brain is where we record memories of behaviour that produced positive and negative experiences, it is also where our feelings and emotions are generated.  Thus it is from this part of our brain where we make value judgments, often unconsciously, that influence our behaviour.

In the book “Flow” by Hungarian biologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi he states that we receive via our sense approximately 2,000,000 bit of data per second, however the brain can only process 134 bits, or 0.0067% of that information.  One of the most important functions of the RAS is to filter the information that is not relevant to you.

The RAS can be considered Google Search Engine of your mind!   Your RAS will search for and retain only the data it considers relevant based on what your programming (beliefs, values, vibration).

Due to its location within the Brain the RAS is also considered the gatekeeper to our conscious, waking mind.  It will only send information to the conscious mind that it processes as safe, considers beneficial and of interest.  The great news is that we can assist the RAS by “telling” it what is of benefit and of interest to us.

In order for your RAS to be correctly engaged so its support you to manifesting what you want, you need to ensure the filtering parameters are correctly set.  Let’s consider this in terms of the Triad of Health, the three factors of which are:   Mental, Physical and Chemical.

MENTAL

  • BELIEFS
    William James, known as the founder of American Psychology, stated “Belief creates the actual fact” and in the case of a person being able to manifest it will largely depend on what they believe.

To discover your beliefs bring consciousness to what you are speaking about, or what you are saying.  Because most beliefs are embedded when we are young, we often operate without realising.

Once you’ve acknowledge those beliefs that don’t serve you, you can change them!

  • LANGUAGE
    The words that we use not only communicate with others they also communicate directly with our own unconscious mind.  Each word holds a vibration of positive or negative context or energy, all of which can either leave us uplifted or depleted.

A great example is the word “should”, it is a guilt word and each time we use it we are unconsciously burdening ourselves.

Not only is it the words we use, yet also how we say things.  Most people make statements about what they don’t want rather than what they do want.  The unconscious mind doesn’t hear the superlative so instead of hearing “I don’t want to be tired”, it hears “tired” and acts accordingly.

Phrase things in a positive manner such as “I feel less than energised” because you know it,  the unconscious mind isn’t hearing “tired”, it is hearing “energised”.

  • FOCUS
    Focus is what we give our attention to, and what we give our attention to is where we place our mind as well as our energy.  Thus telling our RAS that it is important to us.  So if you are focusing on the wrong things you’ll be missing the right things including opportunities to manifest what you want.

Consider what is it that you are giving your attention to?  What are you thinking about? What are you speaking about?  If it isn’t what you want, then STOP and adjust.

  • SPIRITUAL MINDSET
    A spiritual mindset is one of gratitude for what you currently have and whatever (no matter how small) you receive.  It is where you know there is universal abundance, enough for all so there is no need for jealousy or greed which leads us to being blissful and happy for others when they are successful.

It is knowing that you are aligned to manifesting also, and that your time for receiving is happening.  Spend time practicing gratefulness and where you can supporting others with their achievements and goals.

 

PHYSICAL

  • TAKE ACTION
    A few years ago it seemed that one of the key messages regarding manifestation was missed, and that is taking action ~ no matter how big or small the task.  By being active, particularly by trying unfamiliar things, you give the RAS more positive references to draw upon.

So write a list of actions that you can take which move your towards what you want.  If any of the actions seem overwhelming break them down into smaller ones.  Then each day take 3-5 actions that you can implement.

  • MEDITATION
    Meditation is well documented for having both physical and mental benefits.  Some of the physical benefits include:

    • Lowering high blood pressure
    • Decreasing tension
    • Increases serotonin, positively improving mood and behavior
    • Boosts the immune system
    • Enhances energy levels

All of which assists us in having the right enthusiasm and zeal for such things as taking action and being able to focus.  However you can use visualisation within your meditation to out manoeuver the unconscious mind.

The unconscious mind doesn’t know fact from fiction and therefore when you visualise it thinks it is real.  You can use this to your advantage by visualising what you want, thereby engaging the RAS to ensure information supporting this will be kept.

Allocate 15 minutes for meditation and specifically visualising, seeing what you want as if it already is.  If what you want is important to you, you’ll make the time.

  • VISION BOARD
    A vision board is a physical reminder of what you want.  It can help you clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on what you desire, and we now know that what we focus on tells the RAS that these things are important to you.

Start collecting images, words, items that remind you of your desires and when you are next shopping buy yourself a board and put it up where you’ll see it.  Or perhaps start a board on Pininterest yet make sure you look at it daily!

 

CHEMICAL

  • NUTRITION
    What you eat and drink greatly influences your body and brain’s ability to function optimally.  What we digest provides the nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water, amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids, that our body and brain utilises to do even the simplest of tasks.

Yet too, what you eat or drink speaks volumes about what you think of and how you treat yourself.  All of which has a direct line of communication with the RAS.

What foods, drinks are you digesting which do not nourish or fuel your body?  Consider what you can replace them with that you would love and DO it!

  • RESONATE ESSENCES
    Resonate Essences are an amazingly simple & effective tool to assist you to align your vibration back to a state of pure Being.

Resonate Essences range uses a distinctive range of light, colour, and sound frequencies and each essence is multi-layered, designed to defuse your negative emotions & patterns as well as infuse the positive qualities, emotions & patterns.

When we infuse the right emotions it enhances the limbic system and consequently the RAS system, giving them more positive references to draw upon.

After seeing the results clients have had with the Abundance drops, we recommend getting yourself some & taking them!

We have provided you with a few ideas on how to ensure your Reticular Activating System is engaged, now its up to you to select which ones resonate with you most and implement them!

Signs a departed loved one is near

As a psychic medium I was born with the gift of being able to speak with and see loved one who are physically no longer with us.  From an early age I was gifted with the presence of spirit, speaking with my uncle who had passed as a baby, knowing he was in the cupboard.  It wasn’t until years later my mother told me of his passing and that he had been kept in the cupboard at home until it was time to bury him.

Some psychic mediums are more naturally gifted than others and some will spend years fine tuning their craft, however we all possess the ability to know when spirit is near.  We just need to heighten our awareness and trust in what we see or hear.  It also helps to know the common ways our loved ones contact us and let their presence be known.

Loved ones will come to visit particularly in times when we are in need or when we have a strong desire to see them again.  They come to remind us that we are still loved and supported by them and to comfort us in times of need.

AngelSpirit likes to let us know that they see and hear everything and will find ways to let us know when they are happy or unhappy with our life choices.  Most importantly though they look over and care for us, noting in the spirit world they are now able to maneuver and protect us in ways they couldn’t on the physical plane.

Common ways spirit communicates with us:

  •  They affect electrical products
    Due to the higher vibration of spirits energy field they tend to interfere with the functioning of electrical products.  Items which were working perfectly may start going haywire, switching on and off, jumping or freezing.  Light bulbs may start flickering and for no apparent reason blow, even after you’ve just replaced it.

Often during a reading or healing with a client my CD player will start to play up, despite working perfectly prior to their arrival.  It will skip tracks, freeze and then start playing again before jumping within a track.  Once I acknowledge that a loved one or spirit guide is near it usually starts working perfectly again.

  •  They enter our dreams
    A client starting seeing her mother in her dreams, her mother telling her that she was still alive.  Distraught at why this was happening I reminder her that she had been asking her mother to show herself to her… and her mother was, via her dream state, letting her know she was still here.

Due to the emotional intensity that can occur when a loved one comes close to our energy field it can be easier for those in spirit and the person they are visiting if they come to during the sleeping hours.  Thus entering our dreams to give their messages, stand over and watch us or sit with us to give us their messages and guidance.

  • They use aromas
    Our sense of smell is the first sense to develop and due to how aromas are processed in the brain, create strong associations and memories.  Therefore one whiff can tap into a bank of memories. Also most people have a particular smell, whether it be perfume or aftershave, cigarettes, cleaning products, flowers or body odour.

My grandfather and uncle often let me know when they are around by using the smell of cigarettes.  Both ex-British Navy men, keen smokers and pranksters they know I dislike the smell, however it is their distinctive way of heightening my awareness and letting me know they are near.

  • They move objects
    Have you ever searched for an object knowing for certain you had put it in a specific spot only to find it is not there.  Continued to look all around, usually several times to no avail, only to find the object in a random place or even in the place you were sure you had left it?  This is just another way your loved ones are trying to get your attention.

They will also use other objects such as photos or pictures to get  your attention, by making them fall over or even fall off a wall.  If you have not been listening or acknowledging their presence with subtle means, they may use such tactics to jolt you into awareness.

  • They use signs, coincidences or synchronicity 
    Spirit likes to place things, situations or people in our path that were significant to them or are significant to us.  They will use their energy to maneuver and make things happen, things which may seem coincidental.  Such as a song on the radio or you keep noticing their favourite flowers or you keep seeing the same thing over and over again, such as a butterfly.

Spirit often lets me know they are around and supporting me by place $0.05 pieces in my pathway.  I have, on occasion, tested Spirit by asking them to place $0.05 in my pathway which they have indulged me and done as such.

 

  • You see flickers of light
    When loved ones pass over they transcend their physical form to become a light being, vibrating and moving at the same frequency as light and sound.  Thus you may see a glimpse of light, a flicker, something you might easily pass off as your eyes playing games on you, yet it is  your loved one moving so quickly you see their vibration rather than their earth form.

These methods of communication by spirit are incredibly common and are often happening without us giving them a second thought.  The more you are present and open to the subtle meaning of such incidents as well as trusting in them, you too will be able to communicate with  your loved ones.

Boundaries

Boundaries – Ultimate self love and worth

There was a time when I wouldn’t speak up for myself.  I didn’t know what my boundaries were yet alone reinforce them to another.  It didn’t matter whether this was a work, in friendships or relationships.

Looking back I was really concerned with what others though about me.  Therefore I was giving away my power away to them, which meant I was dis-valuing myself.

Because I sought acceptance from others, I accepted any behaviour and in most instances it left me being really upset with myself.  I also found myself resenting people and felt at discord with them.

What are boundaries?

Boundaries are the perimeter or threshold which you have, and/or need to have, with regards what you do and don’t accept from others.  It is the point at which you feel empowered, joyful, at peace and in alignment with your true self.

As boundaries are fundamentally what is and isn’t ok for us, they will differ for each person.  As long as your boundaries do not purposefully hurt another, they can never be right or wrong.

Boundaries determine:

  • the degree in which we will allow someone into our personal space, physically, emotionally and spiritually;
  • the nature of treatment and behaviour that we find acceptable and appropriate;
  • what we allow or disallow;
  • whether we are giving our power and energy to another; and
  • how loving we treat ourselves and how loving we can be towards others.

What makes it difficult for people to communicate their boundaries is because they don’t want to offend or upset the other person, preferably upsetting them self. Dr John Demartini, a modern day philosopher, calls this the Law of Lesser Pissers – who would you prefer to piss off, yourself or another?

Most people allow themselves to be pissed off because they are seeking approval.  It is senseless how we will readily upset our own being, allow our self to feel taken advantage of, to be offended or even angry, rather than the possibility of maybe offending another.  Noting the word possibility.

Too often people think that by not saying no, or telling another that their behaviour is upsetting them, is being loving to that person, however it isn’t.  Because it results in resentment.  Alternatively setting boundaries is the act of treating yourself with love and respect, as well as treat others with love and respect.

When we set boundaries let the other person know our threshold.  When they know what the our boundaries are it means they now know the limits of what they need to meet and thus how much they also need to give and contribute.

Your willingness to communicate and reinforce your boundaries is also equal to the value you put on yourself.  When you have a lack of self worth then you will fail to convey what is ok with you (or perhaps not ok).  You are unconsciously giving others permission to reinforce your lack of self worth.

It is important to note here that often we treat others through our own boundaries, i.e. of what we consider to be appropriate. Therefore at times some people don’t realising they are overstepping the mark, which reinforces the importance that we communicate what IS appropriate for us, as it helps another to have awareness of our boundaries.

It is my belief that when we speak from a positive heart space we cannot go wrong and if what is said is done with the right intentions then it is a positive learning opportunity for both parties.

Noting in the instance we say something (with the right intention and in the right way), and the other person gets upset then it is more than likely they have an issue which is coming up to give them an opportunity to own and dissipate.

Clarifying your boundaries

If you are not clear about our boundaries, then others cannot be either.  You need to know your boundaries and honour them, in turn valuing your self.  You also need to know which of your boundaries are not negotiable and which ones you are willing to bend & to what degree.

To clarify your boundaries, ask yourself:

  1. What is ok for me?  What is not ok for me?
  2. What have been the situations that left me feeling resentful?
  3. Where have I said “no” and I didn’t, which left me upset with myself.

This observation can be taken externally to others. Know most people are working on their ability to voice their needs, which means many people don’t stipulate their boundaries.  The more that you express your own, you give them permission to do so.  Also when you seek to know if you have crossed their boundaries, you encourage them to voice them.

To tell when you have crossed another’s boundaries be aware of their subtleties, such as when they withdraw or go quiet.  Perhaps they have a rush of emotion, or their face changes colour i.e. reddens.

Implement boundaries is a process

If you have spent a lifetime of not knowing, stating or reinforcing your boundaries then this new habit and way of being is going to be like building a muscle, so start small.   For example if you are asked where you want to go for dinner don’t say “I don’t mind, you choose”.  Make the choice stipulate where you want to go for dinner.

Remind yourself the reason you are implementing your boundaries.  Because it is:

  • a loving thing to do for yourself and others
  • the only way to create connections with yourself as well as others
  • allowing yourself to be known by others in a loving and respectful way.

Know that, as with any process or new habit, you may slip into the old habits and allow your boundaries to be crossed.   Use this as a learning opportunity and understand the reasons so that you can make change.

If you are having challenges with allowing yourself to be known then perhaps a kinesiology session would be ideal for you.  You can make an appointment with us via:  http://www.theinnersageaustralia.com/appointments/

Dead Sea Salts v’s Epsom Salts

Dead sea salts are a mineral salt harvested only from the Dead Sea, which is located between Jordan and Israel. The Dead Sea is in fact a saline lake located 400m below sea level and its waters have a salt content of 33% compared with usual sea water which has a salt content of 3%.

For thousands of years the Dead Sea has been known for its therapeutic qualities. Its water has a rich mineral composition that contains high concentrations of magnesium, phosphates, calcium chloride, zinc, iodine and bromides, which is the same mineral composition of amniotic fluid.

Epsom Salts were originally discovered in the English town of Epsom, however their source can vary. Epsom Salts are a naturally occurring mineral compound that contains high levels of magnesium, sulfur as well as oxygen and water.

Benefits
Both Dead Sea salts and Epsom salts have therapeutic benefits.

Dead Sea Salts, when heated in water, create negative ions which connect with our positively charged bodies to promote healing, creating balance, relaxation and feeling renewed. Other benefits include:

  • Relieves sore joints and muscles, as well as a muscle relaxant
  • Skin Conditions ~ Eczema, Psoriasis, acne, dry skin
  • also softens and recharges skin
  • Encourages natural body cell repair
  • Calms nervous system
  • Relieves Rheumatic conditions
  • Relieves allergic reactions
  • Speeds up healing and recovery
  • Cleanses and charges our physical, mental and energetic bodies
  • Grounds and centres
  • Uplifts you to transcend your current vibration and be in alignment with source energy

Epsom salts is a natural product with a multitude of health benefits as well as household uses. Health benefits include:

  • Increases magnesium levels, thus helping with:
    – sleep
    – concentration
    – proper muscle and nerve function
    – increases energy and stamina (by encouraging the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Ease muscle tension and cramping
  • Aids with relaxation and being able to sleep
  • Relieves arthritis symptoms
  • Is a Natural laxative
  • Draws toxins out of the physical and spiritual bodies

Kinesiology

Kinesiology Demystified

A few years ago now, I was “kicked” out of the corporate world, my time was up!  I had a strong urge to study, I didn’t know what however just knew that it was going to me by year for it.  A client said to me “I noticed you do Kinesiology”, I said “No I don’t right now, however I am going to!” and that is how Kinesiology found me.  Whilst I had heard of kinesiology, day one of the course I sat there with no idea of what was involved and/or how it could help people.

Kinesiology is a healing modality which is getting much traction in the market place.  It is considered to be one of the truly holistic modalities because, as with any human being, it is three dimension. Most modalities are one dimensional or two if lucky.

So what is Kinesiology? is an energy based healing modality with strong roots in both Eastern philosophies, such as Chinese meridian system, as well as the Western study of Anatomy and Physiology.

The word Kinesiology derives from the Greek word “kinesis” meaning movement and “kinein” meaning to move.  Therefore kinesiology could be seen as the science or branch of knowledge related to movement.

John Thie D.C. evolved his method kinesiology, for the lay person, from the teachings of Applied Kinesiology, a system which was made available to Chiropractors and those of the medical fraternity.

Generally most peoples knowledge of this modality is limited to the muscle testing, which is the main technique a kinesiologist uses in order to obtain information from the body.

Muscles are able to move due to working with various other body systems, notable the nervous system.  Our conscious mind transmits a command to our central nervous system which converts it into electrical impulses. The electrical impulses are then transported through the somatic part of our peripheral nervous system to the nerves responsible for controlling the necessary muscles.

Muscle TestingWhere a client process information and is beneficial for the body the muscle remains strong, however where the information causes a stress the muscle goes weak, identifying energy blockages.

However Kinesiology is much more than muscle testing.  Together with the client a goal is set for the session.  Via muscle testing the kinesiologist will seek any energy blockages and or sabotages which are impeding the client from achieving this goal.

The kinesiologist has a tool bag of varying techniques, referred to as corrections, to address such blocks and thus bring the body, mind and spirit into alignment and balance.  Such corrections are a mix of tried and proven energy based techniques.

A Kinesiologist will not diagnose, treat or prescribe however what they do is work with the client to achieve a goal set for the session.  With the aim to balance clients in terms of the triad of health, which is chemically /nutritionally, mentally/emotionally as well as physically/structurally.

A balance is an individual experience as each session is tailored for what that individual needs (which can vary from each session).  Kinesiology has been known to improve well-being, bringing a calmer and relaxed state of being, as well as improving self-esteem and confidence.

To understand what happens in a session read our article on the reason kinesiology could be for you:  http://www.theinnersageaustralia.com/2016/08/21/kinesiology-it-could-be-for-you/

Kinesiology can assist with:

  • Increasing confidence, self worth and self belief
  • Having internal validation (rather than seeking it from others)
  • Alleviating anxiety, fears and stress
  • Trusting your own decisions
  • Support with making challenging decisions and changes
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Overcoming past traumas and hurts
  • Support during the grief process
  • Enhancing performance (focus, energy and clear mindedness)
  • Increase brain function, learning and comprehension
  • Refining and boosting creative flow
  • Improve behavioural problems
  • Easing tension and pain
  • Helping sleep routines & being well rested
  • Assisting with digestion issues
  • Reduce or eliminate Auto Immune Mismatches

Lessons for an Empath

What is an empath?

An empath is a person who is often labelled as being highly sensitive and can be considered to be an emotional person. Rightly so due to their natural and, in most cases, unconscious ability to sense the energies of other people, places, events and situations.

So highly attuned are empaths that not only can they perceive the vibe of another person, place, event or situation they also have a “knowing” of the others motivations and intentions as well as whether the truth is being spoken.

More importantly an empath can physically experience what is happening around them thus taking on and exhibiting the energy of that.  This can include displaying traits, emotions or ailments of another person whom they have encountered.  Unknowingly doing so in order to make things easier for the other person due to their dislike of seeing others in pain or distress.

Empaths often walk the less than easy road in life, meaning they don’t tend to learn their lessons easily and repeat the same learning opportunities several times.  They tend to lack awareness of their beautiful giving trait which results in them often giving their energy to the wrong people, consequently they feel disappointed in the human kind and/or finding themselves drained of energy.

Empaths can feel overwhelmed by social events and definitely by crowds of people, so then can withdrawal to the safety of home consequently feeling lonely.

Lessons for the Empath

  • Not everyone thinks or acts like you, yet remember society needs kind people like you
  • Know your boundaries, what you are willing to and NOT to accept from others
  • Give to yourself first so your overflow, rather than your prime energy is given to others
  • Give only to those who are deserving, those who appreciate what you do for them and those who raise your vibration
  • It isn’t your job to save others, it is theirs!  You can love and support others and know the importance of them taking responsibility for themselves and their acitons.
  • Know what feelings, thoughts, actions are yours…and what is not, remembering that it is easy for you to take on others energy and display their traits.  So when you don’t feel yourself, cleanse your energy.
  • Your soul craves creative time, in whatever form that is suitable to you.  For some this is painting, drawing, writing, dancing or meditation yet it can also be how what you wear.
  • Grounding, cleansing and protection is important for you, like brushing your teeth you need to do this daily!

Awareness is the first step to making any change, next is making the decision to change and commitment to that decision.  Now start by taking modest yet consistent actions, for it is the accumulation of such modest actions that equates to major change.

Living in Balance

Life in its entirety is about balance, living in equilibrium between the opposites and extremes.  It is about the dualities that make up such equilibrium and need to find and maintain the balance between them.

Consider the dualities that surround us, good/bad, black/white, happy/sad,moon/sun, male/female and so on.

In the instance we do not keep the balance then life will find it’s way to ensure we are forced to.  How often has you heard or seen someone who has lived at an extreme, perhaps a workaholic, only to be brought back into balance by a force not under their control, such as retrenchment or illness?

Newton’s Third Law of Motion, “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”, when we are imbalanced it is natural law that we will experience the opposite reaction in order for balance to be restored.

The familiar Taoist symbol of the yin/yang demonstrates this perfectly.  The yin/yang symbol is a symbol of dualities, dualities that create the whole.  It reminds us that every aspect of life has an equal opposite.  Such as male, female; sun, moon; earth, water; good, bad and positive, negative.  One aspect cannot exist without it’s reverse.

So often in our Western society we have been taught only to view life via one aspect, the good/positive or what was once known as the “Pollyanna outlook”.  Consider most of the early personal development books, they were chiefly about maintaining optimism and that being negative was a “wrong” thing to do.  Yet this in itself creates a pressure and imbalance that can only be reinstated via the equal and opposite reaction…..negativity.

Yet even if we take this symbol and chose to only look at one section, let’s say the white which representative of heaven, light, positive, bliss, masculine, penetrating etc you will notice that there is a reminder that the opposite still exists as in the small dark circle.  This too if you take the other section the black, representative of dark, negative, passive, female and absorbing – the light still exists denoted via the small white circle.

Put simply what this means is that whether you are in a positive or negative experience the opposite energy still exists.  For example if I am feeling really, really amazing I could easily trigger another’s inadequate feelings, yet too if I am feeling low it might be the catalyst for me nurturing myself.  Actually quite a lot of talented people have created their best works when in a low phase, Spike Milligan is a prime example.

It is interesting that in mathmatics when we have a positive and a negative (or equal amounts of each) that they negate each other and are brought back into a neutral position.  Doc Childre, CEO and Founder of HeartMath LLC explains this position of neutral quite eloquently:

“Neutral is a state where you are not jumping ahead too quickly or moving too slow.  Neutral does not mean being inactive, complacent or passive.  It’s about a calm poise that allows for new information and new possibilities to emerge before taking further action.  When in neutral you actually increase your sensitivity and intuitive intelligence.  Neutral is fertile ground for possibilities to grow from”.

Therefore if we wish to live life in a state where we have peace, happiness, unconditional love, balance and neutrality then we simply need to ensure we are in equilibrium and do not have attachment to either the positive or negative.  Uncertainty and disorder occur when one is outweighed by the other.

Grounding

Spiritual Basics ~ Grounding

Grounding has both spiritual and physical benefits.  Grounding is the process of connecting yourself to the earthly plane and bonding with mother earth. Native American’s believe that mother earth is the source of all life and is a great teacher to be observed, listened to and respected. Her energy is nurturing and restoring, assisting us to bring and give life to our hopes, dreams and ideas.

Science tells us that the Earth is abundant with energy, particularly electrons, which have powerful supply of antioxidant effects.   When you connect with the ground, preferably via bare feet, you are able to absorb large amounts of these electrons. Effectively you resonate at the same vibration as the Earth.

By undertaking grounding exercises, it has been proven to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, improve sleep and in general enhance well being.

From a spiritual perspective, just as in electrics, grounding acts as a safety switch keeping us safe from being energetically overloaded from the spiritual plane.  We are spiritual beings (who are having an earthly experience) and even though most of us are not aware of it we often receive information, guidance and inspiration from above. However if we are not grounded, none of that is able to take form nor channelled into something of structure.

Grounding also empowers your work (whether it is of a spiritual nature or not) as puts the physical and spiritual bodies into alignment. When we ground we too bring unyielding strength to our being, enabling us to take necessary action.

The act of grounding also allows us to bring our spiritual messages or divine guidance into existence so that we can communicate or create what the divine is imparting to us.

Another characteristic of grounding is that you can release (ground into mother earth) unwanted energy or negativity as well as excess energy. Mother earth works in such as way where will take that energy and transform it or utilise it.

How do you ensure your Grounded?

A good indication that you are not grounded is if you have a sensation of being “spaced out” and are uncommonly forgetful or clumsy. Also, if you are finding yourself sensitive to noise and light, it too can be an indication of being un-grounded.

It is advised that your ground yourself daily or at the very least once a week. Trust your intuition as to how often you need this. In essence grounding assist you in being more present in life, therefore if you are having difficulty in being present – ground yourself!

EXERCISES

Be Tree Like

Stand with your feet apart and your arms relaxed by your side. Feel/see the trunk of your body and your legs become the trunk of a huge tree, feel your feet become heavy “sinking” into the ground, noticing that your toes have become tree roots delving deep into the mother earth, connecting you with her.

You become aware that foliage has sprouted from the top of your head and that your arms too have become branches. You now resemble a huge oak tree or blue gum if you prefer, you are now connected with both Father Sky and Mother Earth, balanced between both.

Connect with soil

A very quick and simple way of grounding is putting your hands in earth, whether than be re-potting an indoor plant or getting outside and doing some gardening. Alternatively allow your feet to make contact with mother earth by walking bare foot on the beach or in the garden.

Observe the texture, sensations and feeling at it touches your hands or feet and allow yourself to become child like with it (i.e. not caring about being ‘dirty’;).


Be and sit in nature

Another simple way to ground is finding a place in nature which you find special and allow yourself to sit and be. Heighten your awareness and look around you, permit yourself to see what is not visible to the ‘naked’ eye.


Rods of Light

Find a place where you can have a few moments by yourself and sit with your feet firmly on the ground.  See or feel at your base chakra (in your pelvic region) a ball of deep red spinning slowly, sit with the energy of that ball for a moment.

Now see (or feel) two rods of red light come out from the ball and travel down to your knees, pausing briefly. Next allow the energy to continue its journey moving down your shins to your ankles, down through the bottoms of your feet to connect deep with the core of mother earth.

See two huge boulders to which the cords tie themselves, allow the cords to wrap around the bolder and tie them off. When you are ready bring yourself back to the room knowing that you are now connected strongly with this plane.


Be Heavy

Stand with your feet hip width apart & press your feet firmly onto the ground and bend your knees coming into a semi squatting position. Stay there until you stop swaying & are standing strong.

Connect with a plant or tree

Hold on to the leaf of a plant or if you can go outside and place your hand against the trunk of a tree.

Quick Suggestions

  • dance and/or sing
  • walk barefoot along the beach or along grass
  • eat raw chocolate, nuts and/or berries
  • write
  • laugh

Vibration

Good Vibration!

I find it fascinating how I can be focussing on one article only to end up writing about another!  Although that IS how in-spirit-ation works!  This post commenced by composing a blog about what it means to live our beliefs.  To walk our talk, only to find what I was drawn to writing about our vibration.  The resonance that our energy is reverberating at and what it attracts.

All matter is made up of energy, vibrating at different levels of frequency thereby determining the density and formation of that energy, including the human form.
It has been well documented that we are energy beings. From a Western & scientific perspective we only need to look at the cellular actions within our physical body to see that energy is constantly being created and used.

People often speak of their vitality in degrees of energy, whether they have high or low energy on a particular day. A more common example is how people admire children and their boundless levels of energy, wishing they had the same.

Eastern philosophies also teach that we also have energy fields, called auras or spiritual bodies, that surround and interact with our physical form. A simplist
ic overview of the purpose of the auras is that it contains our life force energy as well as absorb the energies of what we expose ourselves to thereby affecting our physical body as well as our energy levels.

What affects our vibration?

Together our physical and spiritual bodies create our vibration which we can directly influence our own thoughts, words and actions. Yet too as everything that surround us is made up of energy it too has a vibration, which when we expose ourselves to will Hand Vibrationshave an affect on our vibration.

Such things include:

  • people;
  • situations;
  • food;
  • beverages;
  • substances;
  • music & TV shows

When our vibration has a higher frequency we are more positive, happier, energetic and have a better sense of physical well being. The opposite happens when we vibrate at a lower frequency.

All energy it is in constant motion and therefore is constantly being nourished., so no matter what frequency we are vibrating at we can affect and change it.

Whilst we generally can from within at what level we are vibrating at, our external world is also a great indicator as it is often a reflection of our inner world.

When our vibration is low we will attract negative people, situations and events. We are likely to eat and drink substances that keep us in that frequency (high processed, high sugar foods, alcohol, sweet drinks).

When we have and work to maintain a high vibration we attract like minded people who help keep us there. We find that those “friendship” that properly didn’t have our best intentions in mind will either cool off or end.

We may find that we change our workplace, or events happen to make us change our workplace.

We find ourselves drawn to &/or our body craves foods and substances that are whole and “live”.

Our higher vibration / energy will want to be fed with positive matter, so we may no longer watch as much TV, instead reading inspiration books. We listen to music with meaning that uplifts us.

The first step to any change is awareness, then commitment. Yet too to give the change you want a chance of becoming a habit, create pain to whatever you are “giving” up and pleasure to what you are replacing it with.

Be the change you want & good luck!
