There are too many varieties of rocks to write in detail about all of them, however the most common attributes of rocks are:

Shielding of unwanted energy and protection from negative energy

Helps provide clarity and focus with troublesome tasks

Cleanses negativity and purifies toxic environments and/or objects such as other rocks that need clearing after overuse

Balancing, strengthening of chakras/body/mind/soul

Facilitates communication and creativity

Rocks are awesome to collect and often we are drawn to the ones we need most. Next time you are out in mother nature and your little ones want to bring home a pocket full of rocks just let them. For the rocks that may seem meaningless to you could actually be just what you and the little ones need. 🙂

What can we learn from the SUN?FB_IMG_1423347317175

From “Grounded in JuLY Metaphysical STyLE” by Paige

The sun is an amazing example of something the Divine has given us to teach important information both literally and spiritually, if we pay attention.

Literally we know the sun provides warmth, is mandatory for life to exist and divinely energizing for mood enhancement. There is scientific evidence leading us to know of health benefits such as Vitamin D and reduced depression from exposure to sun. But like most great things there is of course a negative side effect from too much sun exposure. Oh how we love those bright summer, sunny days though. J

Spiritually, the sun has been thought to symbolize death and rebirth of evolution by the sun rising and setting creating new days thus progression in time. Each day ends with sunset/death of the old and begins with sunrise/rebirth of new beginnings. The sun also symbolizes conquering darkness as it causes darkness to retreat with each sunrise both literally and spiritually. The sun brightens and enlightens the earth to make life possible. Without light/enlightenment, death would occur to all living things either literally or spiritually.

In addition, many cultures have worshipped the sun as a source of highest spiritual enlightenment. Some have believed that the sun is holy and a sign of define protection due to Archangel Michael residing there. The sun is believed to be a symbol of highest spiritual ascension as all the planets revolve around the sun. The light from the sun determines direction and purpose of planets/life.

Let’s think of this next time we are basking in the glorious sunlight!!! Soak it up and enjoy!!

What do we learn from Trees?

cont.

From “Grounded in JuLY Metaphysical STyLE” by Paigedreamstimefree_41757

Trees are the perfect symbol of strength shown in the ability to withstand beatings from the elements outside of one’s control. Weathering the storm is achieved dependent on how solidly rooted the tree is but even then may sometimes face a difficulty too harsh to bear, leaving it uprooted and lifeless.  How a tree survives is based primarily on how grounded it is, all of which comes from nurturing, time and surprise, surprise, how many adversities it has overcome. The more a tree withstands the stronger, more deeply rooted it will become.

Also…

The towering limbs and connected branches offer protection dependent upon how large the tree may be. This size is often correlated with age, symbolic of wisdom. With more wisdom comes the ability to better protect yourself and those around you. Thus a tree is at its fullest potential when at its greatest peak of wisdom/size. But all trees grow at different rates. So a young tree can often appear old based on size equivalent to age. Just as the trees are different so are we. NO matter the size/age of a person, we all exhibit different levels of wisdom. That wisdom can be used to guide and protect others, as well as ourselves with tools we may need to weather the storm. With greater wisdom we can become the trees with the largest, deeply submerged roots that will ground us in the face of adversity.

So… What do we learn from trees?

We learn that through adversity and overcoming the beatings of this life we can grow deeper roots that will ground us in challenges. The longer we stand our ground and own our mark we will be allowed to grow, in return achieving more wisdom. Through wisdom we will then be equipped to handle every course along our path of this life.

Let’s learn while teaching our children the same that no matter ones size we have the ability to be like trees. Mother Earth can enlighten us if we just open our eyes to the beauty around us. Trees are just one of the great teachers so get out and get Grounded Metaphysical STyLE in JuLY.

Grounded in JULY Metaphysical STyLE

FB_IMG_1423347446708Grounded in July Metaphysical Style

As the month is off to the races and we prepare to enjoy the last leg of summer before school begins I ask: What have we been doing? July sneaks up on us and often reminds us of how quickly the summer will fly by before we get the needed revival of energy for the upcoming school year. That is why July is perfect for slowing down, relaxing in nature and getting GROUNDED in mother earth.

How do we get grounded?

Take the kids camping among the trees, digging in the dirt and collecting rocks. Let them play in nature, swim and learn from the energy of the water. Let them bask in the sun and absorb the fresh summer night air.

So what does July Metaphysical Style mean?

It means I challenge you to spend time with your children trying some of the things mentioned above, teaching them and learning along the way how mother earth can throw the best party of all summer. Learn how to stay grounded from metaphysical principles that can rejuvenate your Spirit in the middle of hustle and bustle summer fun.

First: What can we learn from water?

-The energy of water represents going with the flow, riding the wave, not trying to row upstream but instead going with the current. It has healing properties and can be considered Holy when used with certain rituals. Our souls pick up on the energy of water and often yearn to be near or around water for rejuvenation. Water can mold things as shown in creating coastlines and how smooth rocks are in a river from the constant flow of water. But most importantly it has great cleansing effects of both the body and soul. Because of this water can be very grounding. Next time you have a bad day or the kids are going crazy, instead of watching your head spin, try early bath time or a nice warm shower to shift the energy around you. Even something as simple as soaking your feet in a tub of water while watching your kids play can release negativity and remove creative blocks. But if you want the best grounding result of all get out in Mother Nature and get moving in this wonderful month of July by enjoying the bodies of water nature offers. Jump in the lake, surf the ocean waves or ride the current of crisp river water. Whatever you choose, relax, enjoy and get grounded metaphysical style.

Vehicle to a Means

Vehicle to a Means

Recently my family and I was traveling across country only to find ourselves car-less a day after reaching our first planned destination. Traveling two thousand miles with 2 dogs, 3 kids and a cat was a breeze. Everyone was so well behaved and excited we knew this trip was meant to be. Everything that led us to decide on this journey was confirmed by how smooth the trip had been. We felt content finally arriving and ready to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation. We had planned out every detail of the entire trip. This destination was just one of many we had planned for the summer. Then…on a short drive to the store up the street all of our plans changed. The car that made it across the country now had blown up going only 2 miles from where we were staying. Wow, is all we could think. Had we misinterpreted what we thought was meant to be? Was everything we planned not going to happen now? How could we have misunderstood what felt so right? We found immediate gratitude in the fact that we had made it safely across country with everything precious to us in tow but was in shock that less than 24hrs after our arrival we were now found in this unexpected circumstance. The car we had bought only 2 weeks earlier specifically to provide transportation to haul our entire family along for the trip was now completely non-functional. How were we going to get home? Who was going to pay for the repairs? How was I going to provide for my family if I have to repair it myself? How were we going to get our animals back home if we have to fly? How would we afford the flights? All of these questions began to raise fear and blind my ability to see the “trees through the forest.” Every solution we tried to find led us to another roadblock.

It was in a single “ah ha” moment that I realized what was happening. We came on this trip to have time with people we loved. We had talked about spending the summer connecting with others and giving back. We had brought our animals as part of our pack and wanted them to be here to give love and receive it from others as well. We had talked about the South and the amazing people willing to give you the shirt off their back and how we wanted to absorb some of that type of energy for a while as a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life out West. We wanted to spend time in the water and get grounded laying around outside on the long summer nights.

be here now - motivational reminder - words  in vintage wood letterpress printing blocks, isolated on white

Well… What do you think happens when you have limited funds, no car and need assistance? All of the above! People fed us, welcomed us in, helped us out and provided transportation. Because we were not able to freely travel to all the stops we had planned, we instead found more time to spend it with those who really needed to see us, not just who we thought we had come to see. I realized in that quick moment of thought that the vehicle we thought was meant for the entire trip was actually just a means to the first stop. Apparently the first and most important/only stop in the eyes of the Divine. Although we had to cut the trip short, missed out on seeing other family in other states and lost our dogs along the way, no detail was in vain. Our dogs were meant to find their new mommy here who had been looking for the perfect version of them all along. We were meant to connect with all the wonderful souls who helped us and we were supposed to get stranded exactly where we were stationed, at this Divinely intervened destination. It may not have made sense at first and it may have caused a lot of emotional distress for a moment, but we were where our vehicle was supposed to take us and where our next vehicle of transportation would be provided.

Does this sounds familiar? I don’t mean the car and trip specifically but does this sound like a version of most of our lives? I mean often we plan out every detail of our lives and destinations only to find from day to day things pop up appearing as roadblocks. Years can fly by only to find ourselves stranded in a cycle of what seems like different situation or scenario appearing as roadblocks or dead ends.  This can often propel us into a place of stagnation out of discouragement from the battle. We can begin to feel unprepared for everything and often stop making plans. We can feel helpless and unknowingly insecure of what little control we have on anything we call “ours.” We often see all of this as negative at first and give up, thus leading us to be desensitized to all the wonderfulness Spirit is doing for us in the many signs being thrown our way.

What if instead we began to acknowledge every decision we consider “free will” as actually just a vehicle to a means to get us to the next stop where there will be another vehicle to a means. All of which is apparently planned out by the Divine in a more defined manner than we could ever plan for ourselves.

So instead of getting upset about your vehicle breaking down or changing forms, what would happen if we began to see each vehicle as a means to another form of transportation or change? I think then we would be excited when things break down because then we would know to look for the signs of new transportation headed our way.

What forms of transportation needs changing in your life?

What has happened to lead you to a new form of transportation?

Seeing the TREES while ENDURING the FOREST

Seeing the TREES while Enduring the FOREST…spirit tree collage pic

Oh my goodness! Not again! Really? You find yourself going in circles, fighting for and over the same things. Everyone is talking but no one is truly hearing what is being said. You can’t seem to get ahead without feeling as if you are being knocked 10 steps backwards with each small inch forward. You have a knowing of what you came to this life to do or maybe you don’t but either way you cannot see the light as to how in the world you are going to achieve or discover your purpose from all the trees in your path. AH HA!!

The trees are the answer. The trees that you see as a distraction are significantly meant to instead be your saving grace along the way. You want to cut them down and plow through the trees, destroying the forest along the way when really you should be embracing them, using them for grounding strength and eternal enlightenment while you trudge through the forest that is your life.  IF we could pause for just a moment in the midst of chaos and recognize the trees around us, finding beauty in them regardless of how you feel in the present, then maybe just maybe we could see what the trees are trying to teach us. The bigger picture is the forest. The trees are your lessons. The forest represents your life, destiny and purpose depicted by combinations of densely, overshadowing branches and roots interrupting what you feel should be a smooth walk through the forest. This is what leaves you asking why? The “why” should matter and would explain a lot to you about both the trees and forest, but in the end the “how” is the only thing that will prevent you from tripping on the roots and being slapped around by the branches. The “how” will give you the wisdom to make it in the forest when your strength is gone so to keep pushing on.

What trees are in front of you currently? Will you stop and learn from them or just continue to try chopping them down, brushing them to the side as mere annoyances instead of honoring them as important landmarks and lessons along the journey?

My Heart is Heavy for Charleston

Share the love :

FB_IMG_1425069374581My heart is heavy for my home state of SC. When will we be able to see the results of all the efforts of change most of our generation is trying to instill in the future generations to accept differences no matter the sex, race or religion of someone? I’m so incredibly grateful to be raised by a mother who never saw color and in-laws who overcame discrimination to raise a beautiful family of bi-racial children. But it saddens me that the minority breeding of hate can still overshadow all the wonderful good change the majority has created. In a time of such loss from the terrible tragedy in Charleston, SC it is important for us to remember to stay focused on the goal of loving one another, remain peaceful and let events such as this become lessons to further our growth.

********Justice will be given and freedom of hate will overwhelm the hearts of those who stay true to themselves and continue to fight the real battle which is against ignorance not skin color.********

 

 

#Sins that go against our skin become blessings.
#The biggest weapon is to stay peaceful. Somewhere in the dream we had an epiphany. Now we right the wrongs in history
#No one can win the war individually. It takes the wisdom of the elders and young people’s energy.

Tolerating, Accepting, Adapting OH MY…

Tolerating, Accepting, Adapting OH MY…
I was recently inspired to write on the topic of the above terms and what I felt the differences were by a dear friend and very special lady in my life. While pondering the idea of these words I realized how little I have thought about the differences, yet daily deal with them in all areas of my life. When coming in contact with people whether at work or other social interactions and especially in our personal lives, we always face situations that require decisions to be made around tolerating, accepting and/or adapting. I became enlightened while writing this on how very little I tolerate, accept or adapt to others at times but at home how often the opposite effect is in play. I find it much easier to tolerate, accept and adapt to the ones I love most but at what cost? Yet it’s hard to always embrace these concepts with outsiders however I struggle when the same is shown to me or less grace is given in return. While really contemplating the differences in the terms and through observing the encounters with clients and their personal str

uggles I think we all could benefit from a little defining and shifting of how we interact with them in our lives in order to really gain access to what we need for personal evolvement and peace.
To tolerate is to allow something to continue even if you are not completely ok with it. Tolerating usually has an expiration date and takes a mound of patience. When tolerating something or someone you are unlikely to speak your truth or demand changes. Therefore when coming from a place of toleration you nor the parties involved are likely to evolve because the lessons needing to be learned cannot take place except from a place of honesty and change. Toleration often leads to unhappiness with all involved and can trap us in a place of stagnation.
To accept means you are agreeing to the terms of the situation or individual involved with the acknowledgement that it is what it is. It’s very hard to require change after acceptance because of the responsibility of having known what it was you were accepting to begin with. Therefore when deciding to accept something we must be very aware of the conditions we are willing to accept. We can either accept it as is or realize we cannot change the situation or person and decide to accept our differences to stay or move on. With acceptance there is still potential for personal evolvement from lessons revolving around the situation but it may come at a price and does require decision making in order for happiness to flourish. One cannot be stagnate in a place of acceptance unless 100% satisfaction is occurring or you may find yourself feeling stuck and in need of soul direction.
Adapt…AHHH… the place where fulfillment resides. Because we cannot predict the actions of others or ourselves for that matter, adaptation is mandatory for survival in our soul journey called life. We can only tolerate so much before something usually has to change and we can accept only to the degree in which we are still maintaining our happiness because although we may accept something as it first is often in life things are not as they appear. Since we cannot control everything and everyone involved in life around us then embracing the ability to adapt is the absolute in uncertainty. To adapt means you acknowledge you may not be able to tolerate the situation or person and therefore you know you will not come to a place of acceptance and so you must adapt to terms that you are ok with. Only through adaptation of yourself and your environment may you mold a life that helps you achieve the wonderfulness of your designed soul path.
We must accept our differences, only tolerate what we cannot change and adapt our lives to the things that most serve our highest good. These are the only actions we can perform to coexist in harmony.

To Each His OWN…LOVE

Share the love :

To Each His OWN..LOVE

To each his own is a nice concept but can we really be that disconnected in life to believe that decisions we make will not affect others? I believe EVERY decision we make affects someone or something. Everything is likely to have a cause and effect. Therefore how can we be considered such solitude individuals related to the idea TO EACH HIS OWN? I am constantly amazed at how many people lack acknowledgement of their decisions causing a ripple effect to not only their lives but to the lives and beings around them. If there is one universal goal in mind for me personally leaving the world a little better before I move on, it would be teaching awareness of this to everyone but especially our little humans. If we can start with the younger generations then maybe there is hope one day to see more of the universe enlightened on thinking of others and considering all effects from decisions they make. With small changes now in awareness, maybe the children we are co-creating will have a chance to live in a more kind, considerate world where others are not inclined to live only by the concept of “HIS OWN” being all that matters. I support uniqueness and individuality. I agree we need less judgment and more love and acceptance in the world, I would just prefer to see it occur with simultaneous awareness of others as well. Lacking the love of self and love from others is what often causes one embrace TO EACH HIS OWN. Through honoring the idea of every decision we make affecting others the love and acceptance I believe would come much easier and we could in the end achieve what it is we are actually as one searching for…LOVE.Reiki Healer
