where ideas go to die

This post isn’t nearly as negative as its title implies. In fact, it has a positive message. But the title fits. You’ll see why…

While in a meditative state, I stood with my Higher Self on a wooden platform at the edge of a swamp. An old man with sparkling eyes stood near us. My Self and I each held a tiny memory chip in our hand. One chip was “the idea that being constantly busy proves your worth.” The other: “the idea that worrying about someone proves you love them.”

The old man told us to toss both “idea chips” into the swampy water. So we did.

They hit the water and broke up into bubbles, each bubble bursting with a tiny spark of light.

I asked the old man where we were. He said, “This is where ideas go to die. It’s not as dramatic as it sounds. It’s where we release them when they’ve outlived their usefulness.”

I invite you to take a moment to examine your ideas, your beliefs. Are there any you feel you’ve outgrown? Are you ready to release them?

Violet Flame Meditation

My new meditation, the Violet Flame, calls in the help of Ascended Master Saint Germain. Ascended Masters are people who once walked the earth as humans, but have ascended to become Beings of Light. They are available to guide us along our spiritual journey, should we ask for their help with love and gratitude.

The Violet Flame can help you release anything that is holding you back – be it physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Once we release that which no longer serves us, we can move forward on our path. You can find my new meditation here or on iTunes.

Cord Cutting Process

My latest guided meditation, Cord Cutting Process, is now available. It’s important to remember that cutting unhealthy cords to a person, place, or situation doesn’t necessarily mean that you cut all connection to them. This process helps to eliminate the flow of negative energy between you. It is always your choice as to whether to continue the connection in some form.

For this particular process, we call in the help of Archangel Michael, Ascended Master Saint Germain, and the Norse Goddess Freya. With the help of these light beings, this can be a very powerful cord cutting process. Even so, it may be necessary to repeat the process multiple times until the energy is completely cleared.

Authenticity

“Be your authentic self.”

You hear that a lot around metaphysical, new age-y circles. It sounds catchy and wise, but what does it really mean?

To me, it simply means to drop what others want you to be and live from your heart. Follow what you truly want to do (and be) without filtering yourself through societal and familial expectations.

If you’re around someone who isn’t being true to who they really are – or is so caught up in trying to “fit in” that they have no idea who they really are – they give off a distinctly disquieting energy. Something just feels off with them. It’s not pleasant to be around. And it’s certainly not a healthy way to live. I’ve spent much of this life trying to please others, often sacrificing what/who I was inside in order to do so. I’m done with that. It no longer fits.

If you’re around people who lack authenticity, it’s really okay to withdraw from them. You don’t have to subject yourself to the negative energy that they generate. And if you’re confused about your own authentic self (no judgment here; I’ve been there), try this:

Find a quiet place and close your eyes or soften your gaze. Take a moment to let your thoughts settle down. Focus on your breath as it moves in and out. Feel your own energy moving through your body. Now imagine your awareness moving from your head to your heart. Once you are in your heart space, ask yourself, “What do I want? What brings me joy? What am I passionate about?” Let your heart provide the answers. Let this guide you toward your own authenticity.

Free Distant Healing

I’m so happy to share that I’ve been accepted into the Distant Healing Network as a Volunteer Healer. This worldwide organization has been around since 1996. Their mission is to help heal the world – one person at a time. I love the way they describe “payment” for these services:

“This service is free and without obligation. We would appreciate a note by email after a healing is received. You might like to send your blessings our way, too – or maybe plant a tree, visit a nursing home, or take your granny some cookies – just do a random act of kindness. That will be your payment in full.”

If you would like to request distant healing for yourself or someone you know – or even a pet – visit the DHN website and fill out the appropriate request form.

May your life be full of blessings!

Embracing Change

One thing I’ve learned as a human on this planet: life is all about change. Moving with the flow, rather than fighting it, can enhance the ease and joy of your life experiences.

In the spirit of embracing change, I’ve decided to shift the way I deliver Reiki Training services. I’m eliminating the class schedule that was previously published, and will instead move to one-on-one training sessions. You’ll no longer have to wait for a class, but can book a Reiki Training session whenever you feel called to do so.

I’m still available for small group Reiki Training sessions. If you have a group of friends, family members, or co-workers who’d like to train together, let me know using my contact form. We’ll find a time that works for everyone.

My Reiki Training sessions will continue to be held at The Barn, 2011 Bennett Road, Victor, NY.

Thank you for moving with me through these waves of change!
