What is Satsang?
It is wholesome and uplifting company, especially for those on the spiritual path. Join two spiritual teacher - Sarah (owner of Serenity Reiki Clinic) and Lady Roxanna discuss spiritual issues, healing, wellness and ways to end conflict and suffering in this video series.
In this video Lady Roxanna and Sarah discuss "Focus" - Perhaps you call it mindfulness? Sarah also does a mini clearing, by shifting the energy.
What are the benefits of being focused?
We no longer have a racing mind. We aren't distracted or preoccupied running lists. We are present and focused on living in the "now". We don't suffer as much, because we aren't worrying about the future or reliving the past.
This audio was recorded live and unscripted, as part of the Satsang series.
Let us know what you think!
Why do we overcommit? What can you do when you realize you can't keep your word?
Join Sarah and Lady Roxanna in this mini talk about commitment.
Have you been noticing a change in the collective energies around you? Or feeling odd aches and pains?
Relax, this is your reminder that you’re not going crazy and to stay away from Web MD. You could very well be feeling the beginning of a new energy cycle. CNY begins on Tuesday, plus many people are experiencing ascension symptoms right now as we release the old ways and shift to accommodate this new, powerful energy. We never diagnose at the Serenity Reiki Clinic, if you are having odd symptoms and are worried, by all means go to your MD. Better safe than sorry, ALWAYS.
Currently the collective energy is shifting and empaths could be hit hard. Pay attention to your dreams, as they are giving you clues as to what your subconscious is releasing and what lessons will be coming up next. A major healing shift is taking place. This energy may be great today and "bumpy" tomorrow and then great again by Sunday! Just ride it out and know this too shall pass. You might also want to have a reiki treatment or chakra alignment to help you integrate this new energy. The main focus should also be spending time on self love and self care. This is a good time to read, make art and meditate. Try to relax and don't push yourself too hard.
Also refrain from making any major decisions until after the new moon (Feb 4, 2019). Write out your thoughts, goals, dreams and revelations, but don't act on them quite yet.
Everything is changing and while you may be feeling it in your body right now, know this too shall pass.
Better times are just around the corner.
Yesterday I asked you to think of Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) that you may have done or examples of kindness others have done for you. It's okay if you couldn't think of any or if performing random acts of kindness is a new process for you. Coming up with ideas can be tough, so today I thought I would share some ideas to get your started. Some of these activities cost nothing and take only a moment of your time. Others will be more in-depth and you may spend as much or as little as you like. Choose whatever fits your comfort level and the occasion.
Enjoy these examples of random acts of kindness and let them inspire you!
Hopefully, this quick list will inspire you to begin sharing random acts of kindness with those around you. Pick one from the list or come up with an idea of your own, then just do it. See how you feel. Chances are you will be ready to do another one tomorrow and the day after.
See you back here tomorrow as we discuss what “kindness” really means.
Yesterday was a super quick video explaining more about the challenge:
Today's message from Spirit:
Your feelings are expressing themselves in ways you never dreamed possible. This could be the beginning of a major breakthrough for you. Everything you have been praying for is close now. You may spend the next several days going back over past relationships, looking for clues or answers that were long buried in your unconscious. Make sure you don't get so caught up in the past that you miss what is right in front of you.
Do you realize we live our lives much differently than people did 20 or 30 years ago? Yep, life has changed and with it our stress levels. Even though we are constantly developing new technological to make life simpler, we are also carrying the burden of being alert and accessible 24/7.
So while we have everything at our fingertips now, from ‘track my friends’ to weather apps, we have very little down time. You open your laptop or smartphone and the whole world is at your disposal. Unfortunately, it is a 2-way street which means that just as you can get in touch with anyone at anytime, they can also find you wherever you are and whenever they please. This keeps us constantly “on”. We are constantly engaged and have very little time to destress or relax. As a result, we become overworked and stress-related tension builds.
This is why nearly 80% of all doctor visits are stress-related.
While some stress response is good for you, having it all the time leads to major physical, psychological and emotional problems.
Medical experts are calling it “Chronic Stress Syndrome” with the following symptoms:
Honestly we all suffer from one, or a combination, of these symptoms or know someone that does. And since stress does not look like its going to end anytime soon, its up to us to learn healthy ways to manage and lower stress levels. Here are 5 natural ways to alleviate tension and stress you can put into motion today:
1. Eat right.
What you eat is more important than you think! Foods high in magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-12, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids all help uplift the mood, protect the heart and boost brain power. Avoid foods rich in processed sugars and fats, all carbonated sodas and baked goods. Also too much caffeine and alcohol will increase anxiety, fatigue and inflammations.
Meditation has been used for centuries as a way to calm the nerves and become in tune with your inner self. And the best part is that it can be done anywhere and at any time. Pick a quiet corner in your home, sit in a comfortable chair and focus your attention on your breathing for 5 - 10 minutes. To enhance your meditation, you can use essential oils, burn incense or listen to nature sounds. I have guided mediations free on Youtube and my site to also assist you as well as online and live meditation classes.
Getting regular exercise is a natural stress-buster because your body releases endorphins; feel-good hormones in the brain which lift your mood as well as act as natural pain killers. Your blood sugar levels and metabolism are boosted, helping you eat less and burn more calories at the same time. Exercise also regulates your sleep cycle, what experts refer to as your circadian rhythm, so you get quality sleep and wake up early, energized and ready to start the day.
Want to double the benefits? Exercise outdoors, preferably where you are surrounded by nature. Studies have proven that getting direct sunshine stimulates the release of endorphins, the feel-good chemicals. Add to that the soothing effect nature has on you, and your mood is sure to soar, decreasing levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
4. Practice Mindfulness
To effectively manage stress and anxiety, you need to calm down your fear and panic responses and mindfulness practices can be key. Mindfulness means being present in the moment. Too often we are stressed because we are thinking about past events or stressing over the future. With mindfulness practice for stress and anxiety, you learn how to sit peacefully with your thoughts and feelings in the present moment, creating an inner calm. This will help contain and reduce stress and anxiety as you refocus on this very moment.
Make time to do something you enjoy. When you do, you are disconnecting from social media, slowing down and using your senses to take in everything in the present moment. This is also a great confidence booster, whether you like playing games or reading, or engaging in a hobby like painting, knitting, coloring or race-car driving. Play and have fun, just for the shear fun of it. Don’t try to create something to sell or give away, but create and play just for the experience.
Stress is unfortunately an integral part of our lives now. If it is left unmanaged it can lead to serious health problems. Luckily, with some patience and a few simple lifestyle changes, you can move from stressed and frazzled to a happy, well-balanced life.
If you want to learn more natural ways to alleviate tension and stress why not take a meditation class or book a relaxing energy session today. Let's discuss!
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
