THE IMPORTANCE OF GROUNDING YOUR ENERGY

THE IMPORTANCE OF GROUNDING YOUR ENERGY

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE GROUNDED?

To be grounded is to be fully present in your physical body.

Your energy feels very centred and present.

You are functioning in the now time rather than your energy being stuck in the past or worried about the future.

When you are well-grounded, feelings like anxiety and stress disappear. Your breathing also slows and you feel calm and centred. This is so good for your physical health, your emotional health and spiritually too.

If you’re not grounded, you can feel anxious, stressed, emotional and even unsafe at times, your mind is wandering, you may daydream and subconsciously you can feeling really ‘spaced out’ and your energy body is really scattered.

Being grounded is an energy state. When we are grounded, our energy is fully rooted in our body through our awareness and our presence.

We all become ungrounded sometimes from time to time. If you find that you are feeling ungrounded, disconnected and scattered, then don’t worry because you can really quickly ground yourself.

SO HOW DO I GROUND MYSELF?

A really easy way to ground your energy to the Earth is to visualise roots growing out of the soles of your feet and spreading deep into the Earth. Really visualise those roots going deeper and deeper and spreading far and wide into the Earth. You can then draw that energy from the Earth right up through your chakras (energy centres) in your body and right up through your chakra column starting with your base chakra, your sacral chakra, your solar plexus chakra, your heart chakra, your throat chakra, your brow chakra and your crown chakra. Draw that beautiful energy up from Mother Earth right up through all of your chakras and right out of the top of your crown chakra (which is placed on the top of your head).

Keep sending that energy up until you connect with the Universal Source energy, then INTEND (intention is vital in any sort of energy work or spiritual work) that you are connected to the Universal Source energy and draw that energy back down through the crown chakra, the brow chakra, the throat chakra and into your heart chakra. You are then connected to Heaven and Earth.

An even easier way to ground yourself is to walk barefooted on the Earth, you can even stamp your feet as you INTEND you’re being grounded.

Clicking your fingers around your aura is another really quick way to bring all parts of your energy back into the now time.

Crystals are another really really useful tool for grounding yourself. I like to use Black Tourmaline and I can recommend a lovely lady who sells the most amazing crystals. Her name is Mojo and her Facebook page is Mojolistic – Crystals with Mo Prowse

I often use essential oils and essences for grounding myself. I use Astral Clear which is a really high vibrational essence and something every energy worker should have in their tool kit, but even if you’re not an energy worker it’s lovely as it really lifts your mood, your energetic body and your aura. It smells gorgeous and there are loads of ways you can use it. You can inhale it, dab it on your wrists, rub it into the palms of your hands and dab it on your chakras (they are the energy centres in our body) or you can apply it to your aura. I will do more in video form explaining these things in the future.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GROUND MYSELF?

I ground and protect myself every morning and I sometimes ground myself again throughout the day if I feel I need to.

Try it and let me know how you get on.

I will talk next about how to ‘protect yourself’ ~ How to protect your energy against things like energy drains, energy vampires, any form of psychic attack.

As Empaths as many of us are, it’s so important to know how to ground and protect your energy.

I hope you feel you’ve learnt more about being grounded – if you’ve got any questions just drop them in the comments and I’ll come back to you.

MY MORNING RITUALS

MY MORNING RITUALS

MORNING ROUTINES & RITUALS

I thought today I’d share with you what I do each morning.

By doing my little morning ritual it makes a huge difference to my day because when I do my ritual I generally have a great day and I’m in the right mindset and I feel calm, balanced and positive about the day ahead.

We all know what it is like when you jump out of bed and rush out the house after pressing the snooze button a few too many times and the snowball effect that can have ~ you can’t find your keys, you spill coffee on yourself, you get caught up in traffic and end up frazzled and a stress head before you’ve even really started your day.

To avoid doing this I’ll let you into a secret and how I make my mornings 100 times better.

I get up a little earlier than anyone else in the house so I’ve got about 30 mins to myself.

I light a scented candle and I ground and protect myself.

I listen to a short guided meditation and set my intention for the day.

I use Affirmations, crystals, essential oils or essences (all the goodies in my energy kit), whatever I’m drawn to help me through the day.

I choose an oracle card for the day

I practice ‘deliberate gratitude’ for all the blessings in my life by writing them in my journal.

I send a blessings ball of light to the planet, humanity and all the animal kingdom. It is so very easy to do a blessing ball of light. Simply rub your hands together, visualise a person you want to send this precious gift to, then simply visualise this person totally encased in a bubble of the highest vibrational white light and intend that you are sending love to that person and it is done. I do this on a regular basis and sometimes I have to smile to myself because someone might message me and say ‘hey I felt something warm and fuzzy today, did you do anything or send me any healing?’ and I tell them that I did send them a blessing ball of light. It’s something that takes only a few minutes but it’s such a lovely gift to pass on. My version of paying it forward but with love.

By doing these simple things that take no longer than 20 mins, I know that I’m going to have a great day from the outset.

Have you got any little routines or rituals that you’d like to share to help others?

7 WAYS TO SEND DISTANT HEALING TO AN ANIMAL, PERSON OR PLANT

7 WAYS TO SEND DISTANT HEALING TO AN ANIMAL, PERSON OR PLANT

7 Ways to send healing energy to an animal, person or plant.

Our thoughts are powerful. So strong that it’s often enough only to think of someone to send him a small stream of energy.

We are all energy beings and we all have energy that flows within and around us. When we become aware of this energy and its potential, we can use it for healing the people that we care about and aid the healing of the whole world.

Being able to send energy is not a privilege or a talent. As a matter of fact, we can all do it and as long as we are open and sure whom we would like to send healing energy there should be no problem.

Here’s how to send healing energy to another person, animal or plant from a distance.

1. Prepare the space 

Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.

Try to ensure you have enough space and make sure to be clean.

2. Calm your mind

To calm your mind take a few deep breaths…keep inhaling and exhaling for some time and then set your intention to send healing energy.

You can even say the name of the person to whom you are sending healing energy out loud.

3. Raise your energy

To send a positive air healing energy, start to rub his hands in a circular motion until you feel the energy between them.

You should be able to feel the pulse of energy from the hands when you pull them slowly.

4. Make a ball of energy

Once you feel the energy flowing through your hands, imagine how you are shaping it into a sphere. You can also give these energy balls color, depending on the type of healing you want to send:

Blue: emotional healing
Orange: physical healing
White: spiritual healing / general healing
Green: heart healing
Purple: psychic protection

Focus your attention on this energy ball, visualize how it’s growing bigger, stronger and more powerful with every breath you take.

5. Send the energy

When you feel that your energy ball is strong enough, imagine how you are sending it to the person, plant or animal you chose.

You can even imagine how the person receives the energy and feels its pleasant healing effect.

6. Recharge your batteries 

After you send healing energy, it is important to recharge your batteries by grounding the energy. This could include a walk in nature, meditation or taking a relaxing bath.

Sending healing energy to another person is a very powerful tool and a great way to help others when you can not be physically with them.

7. A couple of important things to remember

  • The quality of your healing energy depends on you, so avoid sending it when you are physically ill or feel emotionally drained.
  • It is not necessary to inform the person you are sending healing energy to that you are doing it, but if you tell him or her about it, they might be more open to receiving the energy.
  • Healing energy must be sent with love. If you feel any negative emotions towards the person you are sending the energy to, stop.
  • Whatever you send returns to you – times three. This means that no matter what kind of energy you send out into the world, it will come back to you three times stronger.

Distance healing is a valuable and powerful tool that anyone can learn to use. So, if someone you know needs a  dose of healing energy, try sending them some.

RAISE YOUR VIBRATION USING THE 5 REIKI PRECEPTS

RAISE YOUR VIBRATION USING THE 5 REIKI PRECEPTS

 

 

Raise Your Vibration Using The Reiki Precepts

Introduction

As part of our Level 1 Reiki training, we are certain to learn of Usui’s precepts and the benefits that these bring to our lives as we start to apply them daily.

When I’m teaching, I love to explain how the precepts can gradually change our way of thinking and acting/reacting as we apply them on a daily basis.  I also like to emphasize what my original Reiki teacher told me, on my Level 1 course, about how very clever Usui was by adding the simple preface of “Just for Today” before each precept making them attainable for us all.

But today I awoke with a very specific thought about how the precepts can help raise our vibration.

How The Precepts Affect Our Vibration

As we know the precepts begin:

Just for today…

  • Do not be Angry
  • Do not Worry

Worry and Anger are both low vibrational emotions.  In fact, as far as the spectrum of emotion goes, they’re pretty much the bottom of the pile (except for despair and hopelessness).

So, it’s no wonder that Usui then went on to add…

Just for today…

  • Be filled with Gratitude

This is a far more positive emotion and one that is far higher on the vibrational scale.

The fifth precept also states…

Just for today…

  • Be kind to people and yourself

What is this teaching us other than to show compassion and love for everyone (and by extension, everything) and very important to ourselves?  The emotions of love and compassion are pretty much the top of the pile when it comes to vibration.

A Way to Apply This in Daily Life

Daily we are bombarded by news of things that are focused on the negative.  That is focused on bringing down our level of vibration. Even if you avoid newspapers and news programmes you will not be able to escape the barrage of information about the terrorist threat, climate change and Brexit etc.

Think about that for a moment.  What is that potentially doing to your vibrational state?

Over my lifetime there has been a constant supply of such fear-inspiring issues: Cold war, the threat of global nuclear destruction, oil running out, global financial crises, housing market crashes and the list goes on and on.

Looking back at my own life, for more than four decades, this led to me living in a state of fear and trepidation.  For example, as a child, I had repeated nightmares about war!

When we live predominantly in this emotional state it weakens who we are.  It suppresses us as individuals. It stops us from reaching our real potential and living a contented and fulfilling life.  This is a HUGE deal! We cannot, MUST not, allow this to be the case!

So, what if we connect all of these kinds of negative emotional triggers to our five Reiki precepts?

If we do, then we will no longer worry about them.  We will no longer be angry about what is happening around Mother Earth.  Instead, we will be moved by LOVE and COMPASSION and act on that basis. As we do, we move and act from a far more empowering emotional standpoint.  AND, through our example, we lead others to do the same!!

Conclusion

So, Just for Today, can we avoid acting from fear and anger?

Can we move to a place where we never act from worry or despair?

If we can, then we can become moved and motivated by LOVE, by COMPASSION, and a desire to help mankind and this beautiful planet upon which we live from a far more empowered stance.

Hope this has helped you today.

ANATOMIC ILLUSTRATIONS FOR REIKI

ANATOMIC ILLUSTRATIONS FOR REIKI

 

There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with. – Harry Crews

Reiki with its infinite wisdom goes to the place in the body that requires healing. That is why Reiki is so easy to learn and apply. There is no need to study the anatomy of the human body or animals to treat a person or animal successfully. You simply place your hands on the body and channel the energy. Reiki will do the rest.

However, it can be helpful to know where the major organs, lymphatic and endocrine systems are in the body. This knowledge will allow you to treat specific problems or organs quickly and easily.

The following illustrations are simple diagrams of the human anatomy. If you decide to further your studies we recommend that you make full use of your public library. They will have books on human anatomy as well as books on the anatomy of various pets and animals. Of course, the internet and the World Wide Web offer a multitude of FREE information and any good search engine will open up a doorway to many excellent guides to the anatomy.

Anatomic Illustrations for Reiki – The Endocrine System

This system consists of the ductless glands that release hormones. It works together with the nervous system in regulating metabolic activities so that homeostasis is maintained.

There are a few primary endocrine glands:

  • The pituitary gland at the base of the brain
  • The thyroid gland in the neck
  • The four or five parathyroid glands in the tissue around the thyroid
  • The two adrenal glands above the kidney against the posterior wall of the abdomen
  • Certain areas of the pancreas near the stomach
  • The sex glands, or gonads (testes in the male and ovaries in the female)

Various hormones are released by the endocrine glands, with each secretion causing a different reaction in the body. These include the body’s growth rate, control of sex and reproductive functions, and the regulation of calcium and phosphate levels in the blood.

Anatomic Illustrations for Reiki – The Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is a system of thin tubes that runs throughout the body. These tubes are called ‘lymph vessels’. You may also hear them called ‘lymphatic vessels’.

The lymphatic system is similar to blood circulation – the tubes branch through all parts of the body like the arteries and veins that carry blood. Except that the lymphatic system carries colourless liquid called ‘lymph’.

“Lymph” is a milky body fluid that contains a type of white blood cells, called “lymphocytes,” along with proteins and fats. Lymph seeps outside the blood vessels in spaces of body tissues and is stored in the “lymphatic” system to flow back into the bloodstream. Through the flow of blood in and out of arteries, and into the veins, and through the lymph nodes and into the lymph, the body is able to eliminate the products of cellular breakdown and bacterial invasion.

Two very large areas are of significance in this system – the right lymphatic duct which drains lymph fluid from the upper right quarter of the body above the diaphragm and down the midline, and the thoracic duct, a structure roughly sixteen inches long located in the mediastinum of the pleural cavity which drains the rest of the body. It is through the actions of this system including the spleen, the thymus, lymph nodes and lymph ducts that our body is able to fight infection and to ward off an invasion from foreign invaders.

Lymph plays an important role in the immune system and in absorbing fats from the intestines. The lymphatic vessels are present wherever there are blood vessels and transport excess fluid to the end vessels without the assistance of any “pumping” action. There are more than 100 tiny, oval structures (called lymph nodes). These are mainly in the neck, groin and armpits, but are scattered all along the lymph vessels. They act as barriers to infection by filtering out and destroying toxins and germs. The largest body of lymphoid tissue in the human body is the spleen.
