Whatever comes, let it come.
Whatever stays, let is stay.
Whatever goes, let it go.
Just as the seasons cycle by, so do we need to understand the natural rhythm of living. There are times when we must push through and times when we must just allow.
Healing comes in many forms.
Reiki, Love and Light,
I know you get tired of me saying it, because I get tired of me saying it, too.
But I also get tired of seeing you dehydrated.
Stop making excuses and just do it. Please go drink some water right now.
Your body will thank you later for it.
We are approaching another full moon. This next cycle will begin with the FULL MOON in Leo. I know there is some confusion over Moon signs and Sun Signs. Your Sun sign covers an approx. 30 days cycle in which you were born, but what is your moon sign? It's ok, if you are lost, because there are very few non-astrologers who know that each of us also has his or her Moon Sign - the Sign of the Zodiac where the Moon was at the moment of his or her birth.
The problem is that you cannot determine your Moon Sign from just your birth day, as you do with your Sun Sign. The laws of the Moon's motion are quite complicated, and to find out your Moon Sign special tables are needed or an app. So each cycle is different and each moon phase flavors it different. Hence the need for the monthly call to get a better idea of what really going in the celestial realm.
This month we have the full moon on Leo. The live call will be on Jan. 21st and I have waved the need to pre register. All the calls are recorded live, with various people asking questions and sharing stories, so there is talking, laughing and I usually mispronounce at least 3 things and cuss. I do not edit the live call and it is usually up for download 78 hours after the call ends.
If the raw/live qualities will bother you, then maybe pass. But if you want to get a better handle on what the next 30 day cycle has in store, then get your place locked in now. The call includes a healing activation, plus other surprises. Click here to read more..
Love and Reiki Blessings,
I hope you are navigating through the Mercury Retro fun. I have been contacted by so many people regarding help with the turmoil this cycle is causing lately, (I made a quick 8 minute video here, if you need a quick overview). We still have another week of this cycle and an additional week of "shadow time" where the energies are still felt, to a lesser degree.
My advice is to not quit your job, end your relationship or burn bridges. Journal your feelings and if you still feel the same way in 3 weeks or so then go for it. But this is the cycle to give yourself time for reflection, not the time to take action. It goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, if you are in an abusive relationship then don't wait. You should leave immediately if you are being abused or are in fear of your life. If you need help finding resources or can't get any help, call the police, don't wait.
I'm speaking more for those people that just feel suddenly the spark is gone in their marriage or the people at work don't appreciate them. These are the types of unsettled feeling that come to the surface during Mercury Retro. People also break things, loose items, orders are late or misplaced, etc. People are also more likely to put their foot in their mouths or send emails to the wrong people.
What to do?
Just be aware and ride the tide. Check and double check your stuff. Don't wait to get petrol, air up that tire or throw out the directions. Journal your feelings and see how you feel later. Mostly everything will work out fine, but why cause more stress for yourself?
Take care and feel free to share any stories you may have of 'Mercury Fun' below in the comments section.
I was reading an article today on Angel healing. It may or may not be your thing, (no judgement). I read a lot of different healing/spiritual information. Anyway, there was an interesting antidote in the story.
I will paraphrase here: “Your Angels will send you signs and warnings about what foods and behaviors you need to eliminate in order to flourish. They are not doing this to be mean or to bully you, they only want you to have the best life possible.” (Cool, right?)
This reminded me of a conversation I had with a tween visiting my home a few years ago. I was correcting my then wild toddler, “Yikes! Get off the coffee table before you fall!” as I moved to scoop him off the table and redirect him to play in safer area, she was watching. After seeing this exchange the tween told me, “Oh! You are doing that to keep him safe, not because you are being mean.” Suddenly a light bulb went off over her head. Mean? What?
I was shocked. I explained to her, of course, I did this to keep him safe! I love my son and do not want him to fall or hurt himself. I want to keep him safe (and off the furniture). I explained again to her that I did this so he did not hurt himself and because I love him.
When we say, “Put Down the Corn Dog”
And it's the same way in the healing/spiritual community. We love our students, clients and friends. We want you to have the best life possible! We want to see you healed and well, functioning at your highest vibration. So when we politely suggest that you stop drinking sodas or liquor or quit the Mickey D’s diet we are not being mean or judgmental. We only want to keep you safe.
When clients come in for a healing session and report feeling sluggish, depressed, diagnosed by their physician as suffering from malnutrition or having a chronic illness, they usually want help. But more often than not, they seem shocked when we discuss diet. I studied nutrition in the late 1990’s and am redoing my certification now for the USA and the UK. I studied because I want to be informed and to make the best selections I could. I also want to help you make the best choices you can. Nutrition and lifestyle are major keys to wellness.
People often ask for help and advice and yet seem shocked when I point out that a crap diet is not helping the situation. Once again, like the Angels, your teachers are not being mean when they say stop eating “food like substances” and wake up to whats really going on. I urge everyone to become accountable for their actions and take personal responsibility for their healing. Take it seriously, starting today. Let this be your sign and remember eat better and feel better. And remember your teachers do this because they love you. Now go eat some fruit!
Love and light,
As you may know (and are probably experiencing right now) we are in a new Mercury Retrograde cycle.
What does that mean?
All the planets move around the sun, yeah? Each moves at a different rate. Retrograde motion, is a traditional term in astronomy meaning the apparent motion of a planet (in this case Mercury) in a direction opposite to that of other bodies within its system. Direct motion is motion in the same direction as other celestial bodies.
Periodically, Mercury appears to slow down, then stop, (stationary retrograde) and then move slowly backwards for several weeks (retrograde). Eventually, it appears to stop again and reverse direction (stationary direct) moving slowly forward once again (direct). Eventually Mercury appears to return to its normal orbital speed. Go Mercury!
And Again, What Does that Mean?
Well, each time we enter a Mercury retrograde things go a bit haywire on earth. Communication breaks down, electronics fail and appointments are missed. People often report dropping and breaking things, loosing items and forgetting appointments. Making this a time to cultivate patience, be diligent as you check and double check facts and learn to let a lot of the "small things" that might irritate you go. People are normally advised to hold off on signing contracts, starting school or other important projects.
For the next three weeks, we will be influenced deeply by this retro energy. But each retrograde cycle is influenced by other factors, so each is "flavored" differently. This particular cycle will have a focus on Ghost from the Past.
What to expect:
Bedside communication break downs and the need to adjust travel plans, you can expect messages out of the blue, surprise visits from people from your past and feelings you may have thought healed to resurface. Take this time to slow down and really be mindful.
What to do:
During this time expect forgotten feelings to arise from the past. You may be suddenly yearning to reach out and reconnect with old friends, college buddies or lovers. This is not a bad thing, but what is your true motivation? Are these sudden yearnings driven by your desire to heal and provide closure or continue playing out an internal script as a mind game? Check your motivation before you go any further.
And speaking of checking..Check and double check times, dates and appointments. Call before driving across town to meet people for lunch, visiting the dentist or cinema times. Make sure you have your Drivers License, important papers or files. Suddenly paperwork has a mind to walk off on its own.
Leave the iPad in the case and watch out for phone mishaps. Calls will drop, messages will be garbled and emails will be late in arriving. Resist the urge to juggle your new camera. Everyone seems to suddenly have butter fingers as electronics fall and break!
Be especially patience with Virgo's right now. They are feeling the blunt of this energy and may be overwhelmed. Don't over load them with tasks and let them have time for themselves.
Take care of you. This is a time to explore your self-care habits, look at your diet, dig deeper into the past and cultivate patience. If it doesn't "feel right" take a pass, now especially do not over commit yourself.
This is an excellent time to reorganize your life. Step up and take inventory. What can you release? Take a deep look at your old habits and delete that from the past, that no longer fits the new you.
If you are drawn to reconnect with your past ghosts, ask yourself what you hope to achieve and what the best outcome could be before you pick you the phone or friend them on FB. Exam lessons from the past and realize others are likely to be struggling with these issues too.
This can be a value time of self reflection and personal growth. Just be patience and show extra loving kindness to yourself and those around you (and don't juggle).
Love and Light-
How is 2016 treating you? Hope everyone is healthy and happy. We are working away at the Reiki Clinic. New classes are scheduled and I promise to begin a new Reiki 1 Class soon.
By popular demand we have added more items to the online store. Many of you have asked to purchase incense and stones on line..because it can be hard for you to get to the clinic or see me. So we are adding/updating some of the items now. If there is a stone, incense or gift item that you are looking for please just email or call us. We may have it, but if not, I'm sure someone will know where you can find it.
New guided meditations will be up soon and a new Video class, plus its almost time for the January Manifesting Call, make sure your on the list to get in on it. And are you booked into the VIP meditation club yet? It's a Big Success and a great way to meet other like minded people while working on your healing path. It can be difficult to incorporate a new, positive habit like meditation into your life, but the added support of other positive people practicing the same technique can help tremendously.
Is there anything else that you feel we need to add? (Besides a Webinar and a European Retreat?! lol) Drop me an email or leave a comment below.
Sadly, time in Texas is almost over..so if you wish to book a session with me, please do so as soon as possible. (I'm actually packing as I post this.)
As always thank you for your continued support of Serenity. We appreciate you and I can't wait to see where your healing path takes you next.
Love, Light and Reiki Blessings,
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
