There is something about September that you should be made conscious of…September is the month every year when you may find yourself a little depressed, sad, and/or feeling rundown,   It is the month that precedes our energy related to transitioning from one year to the next.   In this case, from 2012 to 2013. 

“At this time you come face to face with life situations. Old ideas become outdated and new goals become feasible. There is often an internal struggle to decide whether to cling to the outmoded past or to associate yourself with the new incoming possibilities. The choices confront you and your reluctance shows itself plainly.

GRATITUDE ROCKS
The following is my interpretation/elucidation of obtaining, creating and using my version of a gratitude rock – Richard Parker.
During our daily lives, we sometimes wish or want things to be better.  However, what we do is focus on the negative events or people that have put a negative idea in our thoughts; and then this focus creates a repetitive loop of negative thoughts in our heads.

You have the ability to change your past – your history. I can guarantee you have already reprogrammed some experiences in your past-life history and removed some undesirable or desirable states associated with various experiences. Then there are the past-life experiences that were reprogrammed by someone else – a parent, a teacher, a religious leader, a grandparent, etc.

HEALING AND HEALING ENERGY

People who regularly meditate often find that their physical and mental health improves. This posting is not going to cover the various scientific or anecdotal reports on the improvements to the practitioner’s health; you can go to a bookstore or on-line and find plenty of relevant information and counter-arguments.  That said, this posting is about how you can share the gift of metaphysical or psychic healing with someone in need.

 

There are several things that go into healing; but not all of them may be necessary for the person with whom you wish to share the gift of healing.

Everyone can benefit from using an energy healing cleansing. The very fact of living life means that you have accumulated some ill(ness) or less than desirable energy attachments and that it would be beneficial for you to remove. Some people have more than others; some have been given a wake up call and alerted to the need to do a little, or a lot, to cleanse their energy and physical bodies.
 
There are numerous healing methodologies and all are beneficial.

▣ Emotions and How Meditation Can Help.

No Tags Currently Defined

I want to know about anxiety, fear, jealousy, guilt and intolerance and how all these emotions and attitudes relate to each other and how meditation helps one intentionally intervene to keep these emotions from taking over their life?

 

It is important to recognize that answering this question could take an entire book as it is about human emotions which are very complex areas of the psyche – the conscious and unconscious process of the human mind (JARs). Meditation is useful in

(1) clarifying your mind regarding the factors, people and your interpretation of the emotions that you are dealing with in some important situation in a protected spiritual environment;

(2) focusing your awareness in such a way that it allows you to intervene – creating an intentional intervention;

(3) expanding your view of the world;

(4) wrapping you in calmness – peace of mind; and

(5) as needed, providing the gift of Universal Healing.

INTRODUCTION

Are you nostalgic for the good old days?

In the good old-days before every household had a television, life was simpler – or so it seemed. You can watch an old movie or one of the early television shows like, “It’s a Wonderful Life” with James Stewart and Donna Reed, or “The Donna Reed Show,” or “Father Knows Best” with Robert Young and Jane Wyatt.  These shows depicted life as simple giving the impression that life was safe and secure. On these shows, neighbors knew each other and did not lock their doors; as a kid, you could go to your parent and get them to help you with any of life’s problems; even the teenagers had...

Have you ever had someone in your life that made you feel bad about yourself; made you feel inferior; made you feel as if everything that goes wrong is your fault?

 

My general prescription for handling someone like this is to take a deep breath, smile, thank them for their comment(s), and remove oneself from their general vicinity; thus, saving and/or reclaiming any energy which may have been donated/lost to this individual.

Have you heard yourself say anything like this and you just don’t know why loved ones or friends just don’t understand? I am depressed, I cannot do the laundry. I am depressed, I cannot go to work today. I am depressed, I cannot do my homework. I am depressed, I cannot babysit little sister tonight; so mom you have to stay home or hire someone. I am tired and too depressed to cook a healthy meal, so we will just order pizza. I do love you, but I ache all over and I feel so tired and depressed that I can’t even think of making love to you. I just don’t feel like going on vacation in the Bahamas because I’m so tired and I ache all over and just feel sort of depressed all the time; I just want to stay home on my recliner.

▣ Sometimes I feel as if I sabotage myself.

Let’s discuss here how many times you/we have sabotaged ourselves.
Again, I must take us to our jars (subconscious).  Here we find our foundation for self-esteem/self-worth.  We create and live our entire lives through the beliefs we hold about ourselves.  If we feel unworthy, we create situations in our lives that mirror our unworthiness back to us.  If we feel unlovable, we search endlessly for someone who will love us.  When we find someone who we feel loves us, he/she will inevitably behave in ways that make us feel unloved/betrayed by love.   If we feel we are not smart enough, we may drop out of school or avoid going to college because of a fear of failure.  Whatever belief(s) you have about yourself forms the foundation of your behavior, your choices, your experiences, and what and/or who you attract into life.

Have you attempted to control your thoughts; only thinking positive, happy, prosperous and uplifting thoughts? Have you only thought nice things about yourself and others? Have you been thankful for what is going "right" and counting your blessings? And intentionally, i.e., consciously learning from what appears to be going "wrong?" There is great power in this process, but most people are completely ignorant of this power. Whether you apply this principle or not makes a distinct difference in your life. When a person changes his or her habits of thinking, they will notice the difference within a couple of weeks. Otherwise, they simply perpetuate whatever their jar of unconscious thoughts creates.

Ok, I know that it seems as if when something turns out to have different results than we expected or desired, or when we are planning on doing/obtaining something, “what if’s” seem terribly important.   So, why do I emphasize letting go of what if’s?  I will venture to explain because I know that in our jars we have become addicted to using what if’s in the way we use salt on our food. 

 

When we evoke the term, “What if?” diffferent things happen…
