Do Affirmations and Gratitude Really Work? There’s Only One Way to Tell!

Call us the skeptical mystics. We like to see tangible proof. We spend our days working with subtle energies that most people can’t see. And, we are constantly pinching ourselves to make sure we’re not dreaming. So, to prove we’re not just loony, Doug and I are going to put our gratitude in writing for a month and share with you the tangible results of our quest.

It would Rock our Worlds to have you Join Us!

There’s plenty of proof that that the flow of life is dependent upon vibration. DNA changes as a result of vibrational communication and interpretation. I’ve done distance Reiki sessions where clients claim to have felt things moving inside their bodies at the exact time that I focus on flushing out tumors or repairing tissues. Then, I get calls about how pain has disappeared or allergies are simply gone.

Heart Math tells us that the vibration that comes from our hearts is the strongest one our bodies emit, and that it has the power to create much healing. The vibration of gratitude comes from our hearts. I noticed that when I create vision boards, desires manifest pretty quickly if I focus on my gratitude while pasting pics.

This is not enough proof for us. We have tons of faith that this all works. But we want to know more and share more with you. One of our favorite things to do with new clients is spend five minutes on gratitude, because when we do that — they nearly always see tangible results right after our session.

Our lives have been BLISSED for sure. We seem to get everything that we ask for. A rather silly example is how we get furniture for our new apartments. We have a manifestation routine that goes a little something like this: We look at our empty apartment and say out loud what we imagine in each spot. Then, we spend about 2 weeks collecting the exact same items from alleys and thrift stores. Nice things too. You’d never know that most of our apartments have been furnished for free. We visualized a free brown leather couch in Chicago that we hated to part with when we left. But, we gave it to a friend on the faith that we’d find a new one in Santa Monica. And, of course we did. Right in our own alley.

We are so grateful to be taken care of by the Universe like this. And, we feel it’s our responsibility to continuously share with you how easily vibrations can be changed to work out better for you. You can change the vibrations of guilt and worry into love and gratitude and experience life completely differently.

Today, there are some things that we want in our lives. And, I got the message that as I evolve as a healer my energy becomes more and more clear. I’ll only be really happy if I spend most of my time focussed on high vibrations like gratitude. So, we’re going to post our gratitude journals here for a month, and spill the beans on what we see happening in return.

As for those “things” that we want? We’re looking for more financial stability, and growth of our business. We would also like to take more classes to continue our alternative health education.

So, without further ado…

Earth Healing Affirmations: A Message About Our Food Supply

Any of you out there worried about Monsanto? This message just came to me, and I needed to share.

Monsanto represents one of the major threats to our safety and survival. Know that you are safe and thriving. Know that there is no real death. Know that you have the strength and power to not allow this kind of corruption of our health and planet. Know that you are supported. Let thoughts of what Monsanto is doing or might do to our food production float gracefully out of your mindspace.

Fill your heart with the relief of success that has already happened. Send out the vibration that you are safe here and that our food supply is healthy and safe.

Keep generating the feeling of peace within you until you totally vibrate BLISS.

I don’t believe in war. But, if there’s any way to “fight” these dangers — it’s to change our own vibration into one that doesn’t allow for them to harm us. We only need Monsanto as long as we don’t welcome and accept our own shadow parts. Once we can see that they can only keep us down as long as we are afraid –we will be free. I’m free now. Join me. Send this vibration out now.

Look for more of these channeled healing messages as we are ready to share all that we have in order to help our planet and all of her lovely parts (you and me) THRIVE. We’ve seen countless opportunities for EXPANSION this year amongst the so-called threats like HAARP, the FED and stuff we choose not to support. That stuff’s only as real as we allow it to be. Rock Your Gratitude and shout your BLISS from the rooftops, my loves!

Self Healing With Reiki

A short while ago I wrote a piece called, “Is Reiki Enough?.” With all of the new-age-y, “energy” based healing options out there, it’s super easy to get inundated with the hoopla of it all, and wonder what to believe. I’m no stranger to miracles or magick. But as someone who came to understand my own gifts in such an organic way, I struggled for an outside world label to help me understand what I was doing. I was led to Reiki after having some really profound distance healing experiences with my son, (who is now recovered from severe autism). 

No doubt, my abilities grew as I practiced Reiki. Each time I was attuned, I felt more of the vibration and was gifted with more psychic abilities. Something was  changing in me. But, even after helping people heal broken bones, forgo surgery and meds, boost moods, get over illness and so much more with “Reiki,” I  rarely used it on myself.  At least not for anything profound.  Without a clear answer in my  mind about whether Reiki was responsible for the healings I witnessed — I kept searching.

Besides, Reiki can mean so many things to so many people. And, as a practice, it’s certainly not  lacking in posers. I guess I was covering my bases.

In truth, only Time has really helped me understand the value of Reiki in my life.  I’m so glad we have Time here in this reality. This past summer has been one of the most eye-opening, freeing times of my life. And with that awesomeness came some confusion, adversity and even physical injury.

It is now that I need Reiki most. And now, that I discovered how to use it for some really amazing self healing. I wish I had pictures. But I was hurt. I wasn’t thinking too much about getting out the camera. I just wanted to share with you a few recent Reiki-fied instances that knocked my socks off.

Reiki Rebuilt my Finger in 10 Days

After a long day working with Doug on our RV remodel, I fumbled through my toiletry bag for some Burts Bees — When, OUUUUUUUUUUCH! My hubby’s REAL RAZOR Blade (like the kind that men used  back in the 1950’s) completely cut off my middle finger tip. I know what this emotionally implies too.. just not going to go there right now. Blood was seriously gushing everywhere. I screamed so loud, and thought about crying like a baby too.  Then, I quickly used the Reiki power symbol and intended for no further damage from the wound, and ran to Doug for assistance. Once my MacGeyver-Man rubber-banded me a tourniquet, and gave me some ice for the massive pain, he crashed.

I was up all night. The blood wouldn’t stop without the rubber band/ice. So I had to stay awake alternating or else potentially lose more of my finger. (You never know)

As I sat awake that night, I did a Reiki healing attunement on myself. I’ve done these before with great resullts. But this time I was asking for something more specific and instant. I cut though nerve tissue. I was feeling pain in all my fingers in both hands. Doug scared me with the thought that it could take months to repair my finger tip, and that I may not have feeling when it finally healed.

For 8 hours, I alternated tea-tree oil and Reiki… sometimes holding my finger in my mouth using a special healing color and breath technique.

The next day, you would’ve never known I did any healing at all. I was still bleeding and  my finger looked gross. That night, I experienced pain worse than child-birth.  This had to be due to the cutting of nerve tissue.  I was so tired, and could not get the blood to stop long enough to sleep sound. So, finally I decided to use Reiki to remedy the entire thing once and for all. It was the kind of decision you feel with your entirety. I’ve taken action on less certain decisions and gotten results to match.  But, this time was different. The pain is what really inspired me.

I felt the Reiki energy entering at my pineal (top of head), surging through my head and down my shoulders, arms, hands and finger-tips. I was instantly comforted.  ALL of the pain gone. I slept and woke up with a finger looking so much better.

Within 10 days, the skin was back without scarring or pain. Not to mention no infections. And, thank goodness I have sensation too.  And I wasn’t even being ultra careful with it either. I’m an active person, and have a hard time stopping. You can barely tell I even got hurt. My fingertip is just slightly more pink than usual, which will normalize soon.  Whfew!

But there’s more….

 Reiki Helped Us During and After a Car Crash

We were recently rear-ended while stopped to make a left turn. The bummer news is that we were driving someone else’s car, we don’t have our own insurance yet and the insurance company in charge is slow to help with treatment for us. In other words.. we haven’t gotten any help in the month since we were injured.

The moment of the crash was like nothing I’ve ever felt. It was on my side of the car and felt as if something literally whacked my head/neck with a bat, or something harder. The dude who hit us kept going — slamming on his gas and crashing us more. And, my adrenaline must’ve kicked in because I jumped into the back seat and protected Dougie. I immediately used Reiki on us and the car.  I used the power symbol for no further damage and for protection. I used it in one of those Mama Bear nothings-gonna-hurt-my-baby kinda ways. And, the best news I can give you is that Dougie had absolutely no injuries.

I was so wiped out. I was so wiped out that I didn’t even consider doing Reiki on myself. Instead, I tried making chiro appointments and appointments with other healers. Bills were piling up over $500 that we weren’t sure were going to be reimbursed.

A friend came over and eased my pain with some Reiki. But, more was needed and she had to go. Doug suggested yoga, which is a great idea (If I could move with some ease). I felt I needed a healer. I felt I needed some extra help. I always wait til the last minute. 🙂

The other night I awoke in tears. Sheesh. I was equally as pissed that the crash even happened as I was about the pain that I was in. Then I made that same type of decision. I put my hands together on my neck/shoulders and sent Reiki just as I would with a client.

Funny, I actually waited there for something to happen — kind of impatiently. Like I was judging myself… “let’s see if she knows what she is doing”

Then I felt it. That amazing pulse of  warmth and relief. Like getting a massage that puts everything back in place. Like swimming in a healing pool.

I’m healing by leaps and bounds because I am consciously Reiki-ing me. I’m doing nothing else differently. Just The Reiki, and it’s pretty amazing.

LOVE!

Dream Sharing with Shamanic Friends: My First Dream Entry

]This picture depicts the seven major Chakras w...

I LOVE dreaming. These days I get lots of my work done during my sleep-time travels. Dream boundaries are endless. I believe that spirit speaks to us in dreams, because we are much more open then.  So, when my friend Astra ( who just-so-happens to be the first person to intro me to modern Shamanism), asked me to join her in sharing our dreams on this new blog, Heck YES was all I could say.

So, here’s my first entry. 

Chakra Toning with the Master Zoser

I emerged from inside a smoky cloud, and found myself relieved and out of breath in a large stark room . A gorgeous crystal-laden GRAND piano looking instrument at the far end of the room caught my attention. Once again, I had intended this dream to land me in the “Hall of Records,” but I quickly  forgot that original intention. That “piano” was so beautiful that I almost didn’t notice The Grand Tall Magical looking man playing it.

He was obviously very busy, taking notes and carefully  humming and listening for the perfect tones and pitches, and recording them again.

He had been waiting so patiently for me. We knew each other for a very long time. He has been my guide for many lifetimes. I instantly felt comfortable with his instructions.

“Hum,, uhhhhhhhhhmmmmmm” , he and I said. And we both felt the blocks in my throat chakra. Without speaking to me he began rubbing my throat and playing his gorgeous piano at the same time — adjusting the notes he played according to what he intuited that I needed.

“Do you hear that crack in my voice?”, I asked him. He nodded and showed only a little concern. “We can fix that,” he told me.

He asked me to repeat “uhhhhhhhhhmmmmm.” And, when I did he told me that I was wavering in and out of the tone. “Here, do you hear that”? he asked. “Yes, I hear it, but I can’t hear my own voice”, I answered.  Then I quickly chimed in….” But, I can feel it!”

“Then we will go by your feelings”, he said. He showed me what it felt like inside when I made certain sounds. “Am I tone deaf?” I asked him really concerned.  He said that even if I was, we would fix it.  I then had a vision of myself in some kind of choir.

We were quiet for a while while the piano just worked on me and The Master Zoser gave me Reiki on my throat and my lower chakras.

“You are a voice healer. We just need to tune you. You use your voice. You need it.”

And I awoke. I saw him again a few nights later when he massaged my shoulders and told me that I was also a swimmer, and that water has a lot to do with my abilities. I can’t wait to see him again. Each time I awake feeling so much better, physically. I thank him in my waking state. He then confirmed that he was the master Zoser, and that the piano was some sort of  Atlantian healing instrument. But, in the dream, he didn’t need any recognition. It was amazing how he simply worked on me without asking for anything in return. Wow!

Can’t wait to share more dreams.

Bliss You!

Making Positive Decisions and Inspiration from Ganesha

Originally published in 2011, But oh how relevant it still is!

A late night visit from the 3-D Ganesha helped clear my air last night and remind me of my path. Ganesha, the remover of obstacles (according to Hindu culture) appeared to me as I looked up from my near-sleep, and he simply smiled. He’d never shown himself so clearly to me before, so of course — I rubbed my eyes to look again.  Read more

On Being an Energy Healer: How Vegas Brought My Sizzle Back

holding hands

My first crush was a boy who lived across the street from my Nani. In our kindergarten year, he proposed marriage to me on the “good morning” circle, and kissed my hand. That was the first time I recall the sizzle. I had fun with it. My hands and feet would tingle when I touched certain people. In third grade some boys caught on, and enjoyed sitting across from me — gym shoe to gym shoe. I assumed they felt it too. (Please don’t forward this to my dad).

I Still Have So Much Crying to do over autism: Moon-Day Musings

crying-eyes

I haven’t cried much lately. And, I am someone who really benefits from a good emotional release through tears. Whether it be inspired by a total girl movie, like “The Notebook” (which incidentally, I refuse to watch anymore), the pain of the world,  or a song, I love it. I honor it. I’m not afraid to let those tears flow. I love crying. Read more

A Note from Autism

I want you to see what I see and hear what I hear. I want you to feel the texture of the air on your face the way I do. I want you to know that sometimes you think I’m not responding because I am checking in with all of the data-bases in my head to decide how to best share with you.

 

Sometimes I need alone time for that. Sometimes I need to dance my body, shake my hands, spin, hum, chew on something or even make noises that are weird to you. I cannot help that I am so full of information to share, nor can I help that you don’t already have a means for understanding my ways.

 

But, I’ll tell you what, if you look and listen you will see what I mean. If you try, you can clearly see that I am always responding to you. Always. That I am always trying to communicate with you. I don’t care if you don’t like me or think I’m weird. That is not my concern. But, I did come here with a message and if you don’t get it, none of us will feel accomplished.

 

It doesn’t matter how I got this way. Maybe I came here this way. Maybe I came to open you up to something more magical than you have ever imagined. Maybe I came to show you how to heal yourself and your planet. Our planet. Maybe I come from a place I remember dearly and wish to retain many of my own customs. I certainly did not come here to conform. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have things to learn. Show me how I can feel better in my body. Show me how I can embrace my path even deeper. Show me how I can have more fun and feel more successful.

 

 

And, Mom and Dad,

 

I want to feel good.  I really do. I might fight things I don’t understand because I’ve had to create boundaries for my own safety. Sometimes my body, mind and spirit are not in alignment. It’s difficult to explain. But please please don’t give up on me. Soon,  you will be able to understand what I’m fighting over fear and what my body is actually rejecting. I chose you because I trust that you will find the right help just for me. Maybe it’s new foods. Maybe it’s a different way of thinking. But, I know we will find it. I know you can help me feel better. And, you already have.

 

Every time I look into your eyes, I see your heart. And, I remember why I chose you. One day, I’ll show you how to do that too.

 

Thank You!
