You know life should be easier by now, so what is the missing link?

Have you ever had those days (or years even!) when you’re doing all the right things: you’ve put the key in the ignition, your hands are on the wheel and your foot is on the gas… you’ve taken every step you were told to make…

And yet nothing happens.

For a conscious and spiritual person, there is often no greater disappointment or pain than feeling like you took a wrong turn somewhere, that you’re not walking your destined path… that you’re disconnected from Divine Guidance.

Sometimes it can literally feel like everything has fallen apart.

And the worst part is: you know God is there. But for some reason you can’t quite access Him. You’re not sure how to maintain a tangible connection to Divine Wisdom and its positive direction in your life.

But there is hope. Your longing is born out of your deeper knowing that the Oneness and spiritual connection you seek are absolutely real. You’ve tasted those fleeting moments of sacred communion, and you want to maintain that connection and experience aliveness and joy that lasts.

So the question becomes: how to maintain that connection? Against all odds, all challenges, and with a clarity that delivers you to effortless flow and a life you relish and love.

The life you desire is a reality you can have. What is stopping you is the last thing you’d consider, and the first thing you’ll need to release…

You may have reached a point in your life where you know the things you’ve tried aren’t working anymore. Maybe they never worked.

And the simple truth is you’re probably frustrated, bordering on hopeless, and if you’re like many people right now — you’re starting to feel a spiritual separation from all that is in a way you never did before. In a way that is literally crushing you from the inside.

So you want answers, and who could blame you? We’ve all been taught that life shouldn’t be this much of a struggle. We’ve been told that if we stay on track, work hard, and follow the rules, we’ll be rewarded for our efforts and live happy lives. But that’s often not what happens at all.

So what is really going on here?

These were the same frustrations that Neale Donald Walsch brought to God with an angry pen and a despairing heart. He brought the questions. And he got answers.

That first conversation with God spawned nearly 20 years of dialogue and now Neale wants to share the latest and most potent insights from a particularly timely series of conversations.

You are invited to participate in this live global event.

Announcing “The 3 Secrets to Ending the Struggle and Making Your Life Work” Free Global Event with Neale Donald Walsch

Join bestselling author and spiritual messenger Neale Donald Walsch as he addresses his largest global audience ever in the 17 years since Conversations with God was published. In this event, he’ll reveal how to end feelings of emptiness, separation or hopelessness by sharing a simple paradigm shift and 3 simple steps.

Even if you’ve read the Conversations with God books, or you’re one of the 50,000 participants of a past online seminar, the insights Neale will be covering are the most powerful of the many new insights he’s discovered from his own continuing conversation with God.

During this free global gathering, you will learn how you can:

  • Effortlessly awaken to a happier, more centered and fulfilling life
  • Free yourself forever of that dark cloud of grief that rains on every step
  • Engage each day with renewed purpose, vigor and excitement, because now you know exactly who you are, why you’re here, and you know you matter!
  • Welcome deeper, more authentic and fulfilling relationships… because the truths you are about to awaken to will literally overhaul your life and call in all that reflects Love and Truth
  • Know and communicate with Divine Guidance in your everyday life, confident that you are always supported, never alone, and fully connected!

These can sound like big promises. But consider that a man, broken by loss, homeless and wandering without purpose… stumbled through his despair into his own conversation with God and the “everyday miracles” described above.

Consider that he has led millions down that same path into their own connection with the Divine. He provides clarity, simplicity, and gentle understanding. So please do not sell yourself on the idea that you are so different, so lost or hopeless, that you cannot experience the same transformation. Even if it might feel that way for you today or any day, it simply isn’t true.

Will you join us? Then sign up for free below, and get ready to step into a life of everyday fullness, joy and passion.

Neale Donald Walsch

Neale Donald WalschNeale’s teachings and his Conversations with God books have been translated into 34 languages, selling nearly 10 million copies and touching millions of lives and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day interaction.

His work has taken him from the steps of Macchu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone–from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul, Neale has found a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God.

Archangel Sandalphon

July 28, 2013 in Angels, Crystals, Energy, Meditations, Messages, Seekers, Uncategorized

sandalphon-angel

Sandalphon is a Celestial Angelic Being within the Angelic Order known as the Archangels.  Archangels are responsible for ministering to humans, considered somewhat like “manager angels,” Archangels oversee the responsibilities of Guardian Angels and the other Celestial Light Beings that act as our guardians and guides.

Each Archangel has specific qualities that distinguish their characteristics and their specific angelic responsibilities.  Also known as: Ophan, Saldlfon and Sandolphon.  This Archangel once walked upon the earth as a mortal man and was known as the prophet Elijah.  Elijah was granted incarnation as an Angel through the good deeds he did on Earth.  He can help you live with integrity, bring spiritual gifts of prophecy, allow healing, speak the truth, support manifestation and  is an Angelic Ambassador of Prayers.  Archangel Sandalphon can bring gentleness into all areas of your life. He can help you be kind and gentle, yet powerful.  he is the Archangel associated with Music.

One of Sandalphon’s principal roles is to help answer our prayers and assist with our personal Ascension. He can help you allow yourself to receive as he is the Angelic Ambassador of Prayers.  As an Angelic Ambassador of Prayers, Archangel Sandalphon’s angelic responsibilities include delivering our prayers to the Divine Universal Source.  Sandalphon reminds us of the power of prayer, reminding us that when we open our heart, mind and spirit in any form of prayer, we are joined and supported by infinite number of Celestial Light Beings, Angels, Ascended Masters, Guardians, and Guides.

Archangel Sandalphon reminds us that the Universal Divine Source is infinite and omnipresent, as are infinite the number of angels, and Celestial Light Beings.  There is never a need to worry that we are bothering or burdening the Divine Source or burdening any of the archangels, ascended masters and/or celestial light beings with our prayers and requests.  There is never a request that is too large nor is any prayer ever considered insignificant.  Each and every prayer, formal and informal, prayers in every language, petitioned through any and every religion and/or petitioned through no religion – are heard.

Sandalphon knows, from personal experience, what it is to live as a mortal.  He has personal experience with ascending through the physical realm to higher levels of consciousness. As Angelic Ambassador of Personal Ascension, Sandalphon is an excellent Angelic Ally to those who are dedicated to a path of self-discovery, personal growth and ascension.  He serves with infinite compassion and personal understanding, devoted to supporting us through our own ascension process.

As we create with our words, create with our thoughts, with our emotions, our imagination, with our intentions and beliefs, so do we also create with the energy of our prayers.  As Angelic Ambassador of Prayer, Sandalphon guides and encourages the use of Affirmative Prayer, wording prayers so that the prayer reflects and affirms the desired reality.  As we align the energy of our prayers to reflect the desired reality as if it has already been realized, we raise the vibration of our consciousness to co-create with the Divine.

Within the role of Angelic Ambassador of Prayer, Sandalphon also reminds us that every prayer is answered, answered within Divine and Perfect Time and within the essence of Divine Grace.

Archangel Sandalphon and his twin brother, Metatron are the only archangels who were once mortal men.  Sandalphon lived as the prophet Elijah and Metatron was the wise scribe Enoch. Elijah made his ascension to heaven via a horse drawn chariot of fire and light.

In Kabalistic tradition Sandalphon is said to be the Guardian of the very bottom sphere on the Tree of Life and it is through his discernment that one does ascend onto the next level. It is referred to as the Earth Star.  The Earth Star chakra is the grounding point we use when we earth our energies and is found about 50cm below our feet. It is our connection to Mother Earth and helps keep us firmly “planted” into physicality, which is where we are meant to be in our physical incarnations. Being properly grounded through the Earth Star helps to keep our subtle bodies anchored and aligned correctly. To ground yourself, connect with the earth.

Quote from a HW Longfellow Poem, “Sandalphon”

“Of the limitless realms of the air,–
Have you read it,–the marvellous story
Of Sandalphon, the Angel of Glory,
Sandalphon, the Angel of Prayer? ”

White Sage for Spiritual House Cleaning

June 20, 2013 in Energy, Herbs, Meditations, Seekers, Uncategorized

Sage-bowl-lightworker

Spiritual cleansing

Spiritual cleansing is done to remove the negative energies or unwelcome spirits from your home using purified herbs. It is good to cleanse your home once in a while to adjust the emotional environment of your home and maintain peace. Whether you are moving to a new home or renting a place for new office, it is good to have it blessed or cleanse it by yourself to ward off negative energies and bring positive vibrations.

Smudging

Spiritual cleansing with herbs or smudging clears away any negative energy, thoughts and bad feelings and helps in clearing one’s body’s aura. Spiritual cleansing with sage is done for protection against evil and negativity. Smudging is a powerful cleansing technique from the Native American tradition in which herbs are burned for emotional, psychic and spiritual purification. The effectiveness of smudging is based on the theory that the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as it clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space to be regenerated.

Smudging is also effective when you are very angry, unwell, depressed or resentful or when had a fight with closed one.

Spiritual cleansing with sage:

Sage is a powerful herb which is held sacred in many religions due to its effective purifying energies. This small evergreen shrub is used in kitchen as herb for cooking and as herbal medicine due to its anti-biotic, anti-fungal and antispasmodic properties. It heals by bringing the patient back in to balance and cleanses the body and mind of negative spirits and impurities. This potent herb has been used for thousands of years in several rituals and ceremonies. It is used in cleansing rituals to establish positive energy, clarity of thoughts and healing.

There are many varieties of sage used in smudging. The botanical name for sage is Salvia and it is commonly called white sage.

Spiritual house cleansing with sage: Ritual

Performing a sage cleansing ritual for driving off negative energy from your home is not difficult. You just have to prepare yourself with some ingredients required to perform the ritual and gain knowledge about the entire procedure. To perform spiritual house cleansing with sage you will need.

White Sage, ceramic bowl or a large candle holder, matches, native music (if you desired)

Before starting the ritual, you have to mentally and physically distract yourself and concentrate on the smudging process.

The first step involves de-cluttering the space and making a peaceful environment in the room by switching off all the electronic gadgets. Take several deep breaths and bring your mind in a relaxed and positive state.

Once you have reached a positive frame of mind, prepare the sage for burning. The white sage for smudging is available in the form of wrapped long bundle. If you have loose sticks of white sage, place a handful of sage in the earthen bowl. Close your eyes and breathe deeply and light the end of the sage stick. Hold it in upward position and say your prayers, chants or requests for positive energy to cast out of any negativity. Visualize a bright light within yourself that will provide you shield against dark forces and negative energy. Offer the smoke of the sage smudge in all the directions of the house. Slowly, carry the smudge in the entire room to make sure smoke reaches every corner. Walk through the entire house, around the edges of the wall, corners of the frames of the doors and windows, bathrooms and your closets. Make sure you are handling the bowl safely, taking care of clothes in your closet and curtains. You can also use a large feather to fan the smoke in distant areas of your house.

Throughout the ritual, you have to focus on positive energy and recite prayers and chants. You may have chants or any soothing music in the background. Once you have completed the spiritual cleansing process of the entire home, extinguish the remaining sage bundle and you can save it for future use.

Conclusion: Spiritual house cleansing by using sage brings harmony and peace inside the home. It purifies the space.

California White Sage

White sage (Salvia Apiana) from the coastal mountains of California. This is a broad leaf sage which is prized for its rich aromatic properties. The large bundle is approximately 8 to 9 inches in length. The smaller two are torch style and are about four inches long.

Sage is one of the most sacred herbs among indigenous North American peoples. The clean burning sage is used in the energy cleansing ritual known as smudging (or purification), which in theory means the smoke would attach itself to the negative energy of the area and cleanse it so that it becomes positive energy.

What is a Lightworker?

June 13, 2013 in Angels, Crystals, Energy, Meditations, Messages, Seekers, Uncategorized

Many people have asked me, “What is a Lightworker?“.  While there are many ways to describe a Lightworker, the entry below is a good, solid source for answers to this question and helpful in identifying some of their aspects.

Lightworker-path

 

“The Healing Power of Lightworkers

Lightworkers are those who volunteered, before birth, to help the planet and its population heal from the effects of fear. Each lightworker is here for a sacred purpose. Very often, however, life on earth with its material focus creates a form of amnesia in lightworkers. They then forget their divine and perfect identities, and also their abilities to miraculously help the earth and all living creatures. When lightworkers forget their true identity and purpose, they feel lost and afraid.

Your are a lightworker if you: feel called to heal others; want to resolve the world’s social and environmental problems; believe that spiritual methods can heal any situation; have had mystical experiences, such as psychic premonitions or angelic encounters; have endured harsh life experiences that eroded the knowledge of your Divine perfection; want to heal your own life as a first step in healing the world;

feel compelled to write, teach, or counsel about your healing experiences, or feel a sense of time urgency to fulfill your mission before you know that you are here for a higher purpose, or even if you are unsure what it is or how to fulfill it.

Everywhere on the planet right now, lightworkers are awakening to faint memories about why they came to earth. They hear an inner calling that can’t be ignored. This call is a reminder that it is now time to stop toying with material dreams, and get to work.

Many lightworkers are discovering innate spiritual gifts, such as psychic communication skills and spiritual healing abilities. These are the gifts that we volunteered to use to heal the earth and her population during the crucial decades surrounding the millennium.

Prophecies predicted our coming, and now it is time for us to fulfill our Divine purposes. The world depends upon us!

We who are lightworkers don’t necessarily need to add anything to ourselves to prepare for our mission. We already have innate abilities, even if they are presently dormant. Instead, we need to work on releasing fears which keep us from feeling confident in our lightworker abilities. When you remind yourself that your power as a lightworker comes from your higher self and God (not from “you”) you automatically feel more assured of your abilities as a spiritual healer.

With our focused intent, thought, and spirit, we can heal anything. There are no limits, except those we place upon our healing abilities.

We definitely can heal the earth with our spiritual approach.
In fact, scientists have recently demonstrated that people can change water and air temperature and also cloud structures, purely through their thoughts. Researchers have known for years that prayer positively affects plants and animals. These studies reveal something that many lightworkers have already known: our collective prayers and healing thoughts can avert prophecies of world trauma.

There is only one spirit and one mind, and we are all part of this collective intelligence and love. Miraculous results in scientific laboratories are demonstrating the factual basis of the oneness of all life. Not long ago, U.S. and Japanese scientists hooked-up test subjects to blood pressure and heart monitor machines. Simultaneously, in separate and sealed rooms, other test subjects were asked to think loving or angry thoughts about the people hooked-up to the machines. At the exact instant when a subject held a loving thought, the monitored person’s blood pressure and heart rate significantly dropped. And then, at the precise moment when an angry thought was projected, the person’s vital signs skyrocketed upward.

We who are lightworkers are already aware of the power of our thoughts.
What we are continuing to learn, however, is that our thoughts are even more powerful than we suspected! A large part of our lightworker function, then, is to continuously monitor our own thoughts to ensure that they are from a high and loving plane. When we occasionally slip into fearful or judgmental thoughts, we can release these thought forms to the angels who surround us, knowing that these spiritual companions want to help us fulfill our sacred purpose.

If your intuition is urging you toward a healing function, you can be sure that this is a Divine voice and not just wishful thinking. In recent years, a spiritual call has been broadcast—like a psychic “help wanted” ad—asking for lightworkers to awaken to their healing roles. Those who have heard the call sometimes contact me, asking for reassurance that this inner voice isn’t setting them up for disappointment or possible failure.

I can certainly understand this fear, since I experienced it myself. When I was a young mother of two and an uneducated housewife, I began having spontaneous visions in which I saw myself as a healer and author. These visions frightened me, because I didn’t think that I had the time, money, or intelligence to succeed. So I began overeating to silence the inner voice and visions. I didn’t feel ready or qualified to awaken to my mission.

What I was doing was the equivalent of pushing the “snooze button” on my spiritual alarm clock. Overeating was my way of delaying God’s plan for me, because food would temporarily drown out the sound and sight of my Divine life plan. I gained nearly 50 pounds before I finally surrendered to the Creator and asked for help in making my inner vision a reality. I discovered that as soon as I committed to following my life purpose, doors opened up for me in succession. In miraculous ways that I could never have planned for, everything in my visions became a reality.

We cannot fail when we accept the mission we chose for ourselves prior to incarnation.
The power and intelligence of the One mind makes no mistakes. We would not have been assigned our lightworker role, were we not perfectly qualified. Since we are made in the image and likeness of One who is all-knowing, all-loving, and able to heal anything, we can relax in the sure knowledge that we were born to heal.”   (source: Doreen Virtue)

(B’s)

magical-herbs

Below I have included some very useful information on a website which I discovered while on my internet travels.  All credit for these findings I give to the article originator. <3

Feminine. Venus. Water.

Fertility. Cures impotency. Use leaves, flowers, and fruits in prosperity and money spells.

Belladonna (Atropa belladonna) aka banewort, witches berry, sorcerer’s berry, deadly nightshade, death’s herb, devil’s cherries *Poison*
Feminine. Saturn. Water. Deities: Hecate, Bellona, Circe

Highly toxic. All parts of the plant are extremely poisonous. Encourages astral projection and produces visions, but belladonna is best avoided. A primary ingredient in flying ointments. Used in funeral rituals to aspurge the circle, helping the deceased to let go and move forward. Used to invoke Circe. Gather berries when they are ripe (around Samhain.) Store with onyx. Medicinally, it has been used as a sedative.

As every part of the plant is extremely poisonous, neither leaves, berries, nor root should be handled if there are any cuts or abrasions on the hands. The root is the most poisonous, the leaves and flowers less so, and the berries, except to children, least of all. It is said that an adult may eat two or three berries without injury, but dangerous symptoms appear if more are taken, and it is wiser not to attempt the experiment. Though so powerful in its action on the human body, the plant seems to affect some of the lower animals but little. Rabbits, sheep, goats and swine eat the leaves with impunity, and birds often eat the seeds without any apparent effect, but cats and dogs are very susceptible to the poison. — Grieve’s Modern Herbal

Benzoin (Styrax benzoin)
Masculine. Sun. Air. Deities: Venus, Aphrodite, Mut.

Purification, Prosperity. Provides focus. Enhances concentration. Useful in astral travel (protects spirit while travelling). Promotes generosity.

Bistort (Polygonum bistorta) aka dragonwort, snakeweed, sweet dock
Feminine. Saturn. Earth

WALK THE TALK WEDNESDAY

February 20, 2013 in Angels, Energy, Meditations, Messages, Seekers, Uncategorized

WALK THE TALK WEDNESDAY” Reminder and 3rd Chakra Activation:

Many people talk a great story of how enlightened they are, how patient they are, how forgiving they are. Why not just let your actions speak for you? The truth is this: Conduct reveals character. You can say anything you want about yourself, but what matters most is what you DO. Acting in accordance with our higher awareness is a lot more challenging than it may seem, and most of us give ourselves a free pass by saying something like, “I’m usually a very forgiving/patient/loving person, but what you just did….” And then we rattle off all the reasons why we are justified for not being that person right now. You have been accumulating a wealth of spiritual wisdom for a reason… to USE it when it matters! There are many religious teachings from all over the world concerning this, but Jesus explains this concept so clearly when he said, (to the effect) “What good are you if you are only happy and kind when things are going well…. Anybody can do that!” Now is a great time to unravel yourself from your complex excuses and get on with being the awesome person you so want to be. Become less focused on declaring what you are to others, allow your willpower to flow in concert with your idealism, and watch what happens when the genuinely become that person!

Today’s breath work/meditation suggestion: Take a few minutes right now to center and calm yourself. Breathe deeply and slowly, imagining that you can direct the energy of each breath into the 3rd chakra/energy center located directly below your ribcage. It may help to imagine a color, so visualize a bright yellow flowing into your body and settling around your solar plexus. As you do this, celebrate you individuality! There never has been and will never be another person like you on this planet. Your combination of gifts, talents, ideas, opinions, etc. are yours and yours alone. People might tell you that this chakra is where your ego lives, but know this: Self love must happen before you can love anyone else, and self awareness is what you will need to master before you start making opinions about others. And remember – self-love does not mean self-ish, so do not hold back. Take a couple of minutes right now to state some true and positive things about yourself. You might be surprised to hear these truths spoken out loud, but soon they will simply flow with little or no ego attachment. For instance, if you are a person that is generous and kind, say it, believe it, then live it!

Energy Vampires

February 19, 2013 in Energy, Meditations, Messages, Seekers, Uncategorized, Videos

energy-vampire-lightworker

“Do you know anyone who zaps the spiritual, physical or emotional energy from you? If so, then you are familiar with the term, ‘emotional vampire’.

You dread meeting them for lunch, but go anyway. Hours later you’re exhausted, have a headache and find yourself making weak excuses to run for your life. You’ve just been zapped by an emotional vampire.

No, they don’t actually drain the blood from your neck (although you may have a stiff neck by the time you flee), but they do drain the joy from your life and remove any desire you have to spend any more time with them. No wonder you’re dazed and confused. No wonder you don’t feel good around them!

Emotional vampires do their best energetically to suck the life force right out of you (and everyone else)! Whether it’s subconsciously or on purpose, these are the kinds of people who hunt for victims to energize them simply because they can’t (or won’t) tap into their own spiritual energy source for revitalization.”  (Ref: Kathi Calahan)

How do you know you have run across an Energy Vampire?

 

“Beyond their chronic bad moods and boring retelling of the same (often dramatic) stories, emotional vampires are the sort who always seemed to be depressed (or angry) – to the point where you suspect they may like it. These conversation dominators (who have no issue talking over you – or anyone else who tries to get a word in edgewise), seem to happily play the role of the victim. In other words, nothing is ever their fault and life just seems to happen to them as if they had no part in the things they’re forever complaining about.

Emotional vampires have negative things to say about everyone and everything and make a habit of telling you all about their problems and pet peeves – without showing any interest in yours. Should you be lucky enough to interject more than a nod into the conversation, they’ll always find a way to change the subject back to themselves… even if it means switching gears when you’re in the middle of a thought. Finally, they never know when to go home. Emotional vampires have no clue when they’ve overstayed their welcome – or worn you thin.

“There are obvious traits in physical people that you can watch for, but then also realize the underlying feelings of your intuition when you can’t see the obvious. The obvious are people that continuously live in negative emotions! Such as pessimism and denial, hate, envy, jealous, rage, anger, resentment, a person consumed with gloom, doubt, distrust, hopelessness and fear, as well as always perceiving the dark side of life! When these negative emotions are put out there, they are already draining your energy. You need to protect yourself from this. People with these negative emotions attract low level energies (like attracts like). These constant feelings of negativity will attract low level astral entities. They also play in the role of negative energy/thought causing negativity. This is a ripple effect. Anyone within reach will feel the ripple effects. You’ve got to get yourself out of harms way and protect yourself.”

How to know when this is happening to you:

Energy vampires can be your family, friends, clients, colleagues, teachers, neighbors, lovers, or even strangers. And they come in all types… (mindbodygreen.com)

  • There is the blamer, who lays blame on everyone else without ever taking any responsibility.
  • The guilt trippers use shame to get what they want.
  • Jealous bees can never genuinely feel happiness for anyone else.
  • Then there are the insecure ones, who pull others down to their level of low self-esteem.
  • The fun haters seem unable to embrace joy. The bullies stomp on the little guys to elevate their egos.
  •  The downers, the whiners, the short-tempers, the gossipers, the drama queens, and the list goes on…

Also To Note:

 

  1. You will get this certain uneasy/unsettling feeling. A negative feeling, a heavy feeling. Your higher vibrational self (intuition) is picking up on negative vibes.
  2. Certain physical aspects will happen to your body:
  3. You will get constant headaches when around a psychic vampire. (Person and/or place) and/or just chronic headaches
  4. Feeling sick
  5. Insomnia and other sleeping disorders
  6. Low energy levels (James Van Praag notes that this will happen in the mornings, but I believe this happens at any time. Though it can be more noticeable in the morning for sure!)
  7. Recurring nightmares and dreams of terror
  8. Stomach upset and/or cramps.
  9. An obsession about a certain person or thing
  10. If you feel anxiety, pressure or drained around certain people and/or places. It’s likely they are either the psychic vampire themselves or have one around them sucking their energy and anyone they come in contact with.
  11. A nervous breakdown
  12. Feelings of fatigue (sleepiness) when around a certain person or place. As well as Chronic Fatigue.
  13. Bad or repulsive odors around people or places
  14. Sudden onset of depression or moodiness
  15. Frequent accidents
  16. Bizarre occurrences

Also these symptoms will be different for everyone. You may get one or a variety of the above, even all of the symptoms.” (spiritualcompassconnection.com )

 

Brief Video By Dr. Judith Orloff on On Energy Vampires

Energy Vampires =  the people who only “take” from you.

“Whatever form they take, energy vampires have one thing in common: They cannot create or sustain their own life force in any positive manner. So they latch on and feed off on others, slowly sucking the life out of them.
No doubt you know people like this. You probably care about them, too. Heck, they may even mean well! They may protest their love and care for you. That makes it hard to get away from these energy-sucking relationships.
Believe me, I know.
In the past, I tolerated energy vampires. I prided myself on being able to get along with everybody, to “suck it up” and “be the bigger person.” Maybe I was even afraid to speak my mind, or didn’t want others to see me as being difficult or aloof.
Perhaps I just didn’t want to alienate anyone.
But all the while, I was sacrificing my own precious energy.
The thing is, relationships are always an exchange of energy. People either uplift us… or they don’t.
During the last year, it horrified and surprised me how affected I was by the energy vampires in my life. In order to continue to stay and do my best, it became apparent that I’d need to safeguard my physical, emotional, and mental energy from them.
And the same goes for you.
You are the guardian of your own energetic space. And to live a healthy, happy, and positive life, it is absolutely vital that you surround yourself with people who promote the same way of living.”

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM NEGATIVE ENERGY

February 14, 2013 in Crystals, Energy, Meditations, Messages, Seekers, Uncategorized

shield-negative-energy

I found this post online and thought it might be useful for some of our readers out there:

 

“Ever feel overwhelmed by your environment?

Does it sometime feel like others energy soaks into your personal space?

Ever catch yourself feeling exhausted, angry, irritable, moody, or sick for no reason–it just came like a sudden flood out of no where?

Have you ever asked yourself why you are so sensitive to others around you and the environment?

The good news is these feelings might NOT be yours.

You may be what others call an “empath” also know as a “highly sensitive person” (HSP). Empaths are highly sensitive of the environment and energy. Often they can sense others energy and even absorb others energy. They can sense how another person is feeling just by being in proximity or seeing the person as if the feeling is in their OWN body.

The following list is provided by Michael R. Smith, Ph.D of EmpathConnection.com to help you discover if you are an empath.

You May Be An Empath If…

1. You look at someone and “just know” their emotional state.
2. You can feel the energy coming at you (or being drained) from another person, especially from the eyes.
3. You have a blocked feeling in your chest [or core], as if someone is tugging on it.
4. Tend to run away from people when stressed, rather than engage.
5. You’ve been called “oversensitive,” especially if you’re male.
6. Always know where danger may lurk. (Curiously, you may have avoided accidents).
7. Are drawn to the tranquility of animals.
8. Are drawn to mountains, nature, the ocean – anywhere outdoors.
9. Can not bear violence in any form.
10. Can easily produce tears, sometimes at will.
11. You can feel the physical aches & pains of others.
12. Feel better after a good, intense cry.
13. See things from the “bigger picture” and from “the larger scheme of things.”
14. Are overwhelmed by large crowds or mobs (e.g. shopping malls).
15. Can sometimes feel affected by the energy of the full moon.
16. Have intense, fantastic, and sometimes lucid, dreams.

If this sounds like you… You’re not alone.

Here are some solutions to clearing negative energy Mark and I found useful. Everyone is different, so try them out to see which ones work better for you.

The number one key is to STAY GROUNDED in your body. This means getting regular exercise, eating nutritional food, and cutting out overstimulating things in your life.

Clearing Negative Energy In Your Environment:
1. Smudging your home with sage.
2. Doing Meditation and taking deep breaths.
3. Strategically placing bowls of sea salt in your home to protect you from entrance of negative energy. The salt acts as an absorbent to negative energy.
4. Using protective stones and crystals. Some good protective stones that repel negative energy are Onyx and Obsidian. While Amber and black tourmaline acts more like absorbers. And Amethyst is considered a healing stone. So you may also want to consider wearing protective stone jewelry. (Just remember to clean the stones regularly with sea salt and water.)
5. Physically clean the place. This removes the old energy and keep the place in high vibration.

Elevating Your Personal Energy and Grounding Yourself:
1. Take a nice warm shower.
2. Take a nice bath using Epsom Salt. Epsom Salt is to help you cut the psychic connection with others so that they are no longer pulling you. Plus, it helps your tired body relax.
3. Use essential oil or scent such as lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, etc. to calm and relax yourself.
4. Get a nice massage.
5. Meditate
6. Going outside for some sun.
7. Doing any type of physical activities that will help you stay grounded in your body. (e.g. Yoga, Tai Chi, martial art, jogging, boxing, exercise, or some kind of sports you enjoy, etc.)
8. Get some fresh air.
9. Connect with nature.
10. Going to ocean, forest, or mountain area also helps you rejuvenate.
11. Surrounding yourself around plants or trees of high energy.
12. Drink pure water. (Bless your water with positive energy before drinking it. And remember to thank it for purifying your body as you drink it.)
13. Eat proper balance nutritious meals.
14. Feel your emotions.
15. Take care of yourself.”

Look at the psychic protection stones in the table and see if you already own any of them. Many of you with crystal jewelry have a lovely Amethyst ring or pendant… and these are very powerful for protection. An Amethyst crystal cluster like the one in the picture is a lovely way to keep protective energy in the room.

 

Spirit Quartz is also a stone to have in your environment, as it will bring you freedom from any fear you may feel when thinking about the problem of psychic attack.

Black Tourmaline is one stone to choose over all of the others for psychic protection. They are wonderful aids to have in the home… not just for protection but for grounding, but also for many other reasons.

The best stone to use to both send negative energy back to where it came from, as well as for psychic protection is Fire Agate… especially Crackled Fire Agate.”
