Want to Find Some Peace? Meditate, Baby!

When the Center was open, every Thursday for six years I taught meditation classes. Many people still ask me how to meditate. There’s so many different ways to meditate! Simply put, meditating is focusing or concentrating on one thing, like Tai Chi. That’s why I love Tai Chi so much. There are many tools that can assist you in your meditation practice. For instance, a candle flame, music or humming. You can also meditate while gardening, doing dishes or other sedate activities.

However, there is one constant – BREATHING! My breathing has changed in the last year and a half since I closed the Center. Back then my breathing was what I call too serious. Not that I don’t take meditation serious – I do. I was being too serious in trying to control everything. Now I sing and hum to relax my energy. As I relax my breathing becomes deeper as I sing. Changing the way I meditate makes me feel more connected to the experience. Without listening to a meditation CD or reading from a book, I create my experience and it works perfect for me. You may want to try this idea – choose a meditation from a book and read it into a recorder. Listening to you tell you what to do – can be very powerful. I challenge every one of you to create your own experience! If you’d like to come to a guided meditation, I welcome you to my home on Thursday from 7:30 – 9:00 PM. Meditation in the Shining Wheel

Creating and Accepting Mom’s Love

When I was a little girl Mama was full of joy and very energetic. I remember feeling as though life was a dream. As I began to mature I still saw Mama with that same joy. As I began to create my own life my actions and behaviors weren’t always accepted by Mom, but there was always Mama’s love.

We all look for our Mother’s acceptance. The love is always a constant, but sometimes the approval isn’t there. In my relationship with Mom I knew I was loved. But our relationship at times grew strained. I used to think, “If you’re not able to approve of my life we probably won’t be close.”

Then, through self acceptance and creating boundaries, I was able to open up to my Mama. By communicating with love we began to look at our relationship as two adults instead of Mother and child, and now we respect and honor each other. Our love has grown and deepened over the years.

Our depth of love was born from acceptance and communicating in a loving way. My Mama is so amazing! During this process she changed too! Mama became completely accepting of who I am! Happy Mother’s Day Mama – I love you!

We are all Mothers to all children around the world!
Happy Mother’s Day to ALL!

How I Experienced Courage

While at the grocery store I received a phone call from my Step-mom telling me my Dad was in the hospital, and it was about his heart. As energy pulsed through me my first reaction was the need to rush to the hospital. Then a feeling of great calm came over me, I felt a knowing that my Dad was going to be okay. I remember thinking, “The Universe has him.” I still felt driven to be there for my family; nothing was more important and I cleared my schedule. Healing energy was already flowing.

In the calm I felt as though I were floating in this experience. As I floated I sensed the reality of possibly losing my Dad. I told myself, “I have the courage; I will do this. I will continue to step forward, releasing my burden and focusing on healing energy.”

What was most challenging was seeing Dad. His short-term memory was affected and he was in so much pain. After surgery, as the anesthetic wore off, he kept asking, “Where am I?” and “What’s going on?” I’ve always seen my Dad as the head of the family. He was always a strong and fearless leader. Now I was seeing him as a human, a fragile being. I had to ask myself, “Do I have the courage to go on without him when that time comes?”

The outpouring of love, sympathy and healing from friends was amazing and deeply appreciated. All the love and healing coming our way was something I could feel. I know it helped us through this experience. I know it helped my Dad. I was overwhelmed with the validation that I am never alone!

We are never, ever alone. Our God/Universe is always there for us. Our friends and family are not only our support, they are the bridges connecting us all.

Celebrate Earth Day!

April 22 is Earth Day, celebrating the 42nd anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement. In 1970 Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin started a movement which channeled the energy of the anti-war protests and capitalized on the emerging consciousness for environmental concerns. The result was 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies.

This year, more than one billion people in 192 countries around the globe, will participate in Earth Day 2012. People of all nationalities and backgrounds will share their appreciation for the planet and demand its protection. Together they will stand united for a sustainable future and call upon individuals, organizations, and governments to do their part.
There are many ways to participate from organizing environmental fundraisers, to planting a tree, to taking care to use less water and paying extra attention to how many lights are left on.

Join us on Sunday, April 22, 2012, from noon-3:00pm. Bring the family, and let’s share some refreshments and be in the beauty of nature. Medicine Women will be doing a honoring ceremony all of the earth from 2pm-3pm. http://www.meetup.com/lightworkersgifts/events/59180662/

Connecting to Your Spirit Guides

Shine On!Each of us has Spirit Guides, and your Guide may be a person or an animal. As the situations in your life change, you may attract new guides to help you. Your Spirit Guides can help you with every aspect of your life, all you have to do is ASK! If you can think of a question, your Spirit Guides will give you an answer. Here are some tips for connecting with your Spirit Guides:

  • Find a quiet, comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. Stretch, relax, and breathe to relax and release any accumulated tension or stress.  Do this for at least three minutes, or as much as necessary to achieve a state of relaxation.
  • Set your spiritual intent to contact your spirit guide, and open up your awareness to their presence. You may see them, feel their presence, hear them communicating, or somehow just know they are there. Say “hello” and allow yourself to receive a “hello” back.
  • Relax, breathe and just be in their presence. Without speaking, ask your spirit guide if they have a message for you. If you have a question, remember to be very clear and focused on whatever situation you want help with. Be still and allow yourself to receive their spiritual communication. Just be…and listen.
  • When you end your connection, always give thanks to your Spirit Guide with a sense of gratitude for their help.

Have faith in knowing that if you ask for guidance,  or for a sign, it will always be given. But you must be open to receiving the message in any form. Remember that your Spirit Guides are always around you ready to help, but they cannot and will not interfere with your life. You must first invite them in, ask for their guidance and they will be happy to help you in any way they can.

Connecting with your Spirit Guides begins a wonderful relationship that will last your entire life. So if you haven’t yet met, now might be an excellent time to introduce yourself!

Three Clues To Check if You Are A Lightworker!

You are a lightworker if you:

  • feel called to heal others,
  • want to resolve the world’s social and environmental problems
  • believe that spiritual methods can heal any situation;
  • have had mystical experiences, such as psychic premonitions or angelic encounters
  • have endured harsh life experiences that eroded the knowledge of your Divine perfection
  • want to heal your own life as a first step in healing the world
  • feel compelled to write, teach, or counsel about your healing experiences, or
  • feel a sense of time urgency to fulfill your mission before you know that you are here for a higher purpose, or even if you are unsure what it is or how to fulfill it.

Everywhere on the planet right now, lightworkers are awakening to faint memories about why they came to earth. They hear an inner calling that can’t be ignored. This call is a reminder that it is now time to stop toying with material dreams, and get to work.

Many lightworkers are discovering innate spiritual gifts, such as psychic communication skills and spiritual healing abilities. These are the gifts that we volunteered to use to heal the earth and her population during the crucial decades surrounding the millennium.

Prophecies predicted our coming, and now it is time for us to fulfill our Divine purposes. The world depends upon us!

11-11-11 – Positive or Negative? It’s up to YOU!

People around the world are looking at 11-11-11 as a special date in time.  Many suppose and predict that it will be the “end of the world as we know it”…but I choose to see it as a positive thing.  Just all the people coming together to make a change, will create a massive difference in the world.

Because November 11, 2011 is full of elevens it is important to consider what you are thinking.  It is said that manifestations – our thoughts and desires – may take only split seconds to be fulfilled.  It is a wonderful time to meditate and consider what you wish to take place in your life.  Eleven actually represents a refinement of ideals, intuition and revelation, as well as impractical idealism and visionary insight.

Although eleven carries psychic vibrations, it can also have negative effects such as treachery and betrayal of secret enemies.  This is why it is a time to call for meditation and manifestation.  While you are considering your own desires, this may just be the best time to meditate for world peace and commitment to becoming responsible for Mother Earth and her wellness!

"The Blue Marble" is a famous photog...

People around the globe will be gathering together, regardless of race, creed, doctrine or philosophies with a similar underlying theme; to awaken humanity and prepare for the next step in conscious illumination. They will unite and align themselves by releasing the old ways that will be replaced with a desire to live in harmony, joy and love.  This will be a time of personal renewal through meditation and manifestation.

Most people will be focused on healing Mother Earth from the suffocating pollutants which we have created over the last decades.  High energy where humanity as a whole will vibrate at a much greater frequency creating a time for those who practice the meditation and manifesting will be determined to see humanity in to an era of rebirth.

SHINE ON!
