Side Effects of a Spiritual Clearing

     Spiritual clearings are awesome. They help get rid of the old and unnecessary so that the new can come in.  Most clearings are done energetically, with intention and sage.  And if you have the assistance of another healer, or Shaman, then the clearing and its effects will be that much more powerful.
     I had such a clearing last Thursday morning. My friend, Kathy Folsom of Readings, Reiki & Rocks, is a practicing Shaman (a Native American healer). I went to her for a healing - I wanted help in getting rid of the attachment that I had to an ex-boyfriend.  As it turns out, I had an abandonment issue that stemmed from another lifetime.  She brought me back to this other lifetime (I'm not quite sure the dates) and helped me connect to an old part of my Soul. It was enlightening and liberating.  She wafted sage and the sounds of drums and maracas over me. At the end she mentioned that some people come down sick after such a clearing. I was hoping this wasn't going to happen to me, but alas, it had. I woke up Friday morning feeling off; feeling like I caught a cold.
     It is now Tuesday and the effects of the cold has taken its toll. I know this is part of the clearing process. It's completely shredding and shedding what I no longer need within my Soul. I have to admit, I am already losing patience. Haha. As a business owner, I have certain responsibilities. I can only do so much when I am not feeling well. I hope this cold goes away swiftly, preferably by the end of this week.
     I am by no means putting the intention out there that spiritual clearings are bad and that they will always make you come down sick afterward. No, that isn't true at all. In fact, spiritual clearings (or cleansing) are magnificent. The side effects are different for every one. Some people don't experience side effects at all. That has never been the case with me - I always experienced something afterwards. I know that once this cold does go away, I will feel ten times, no, 100 times, better. And I look forward to the day when I can wake up and breathe normally through both of my nostrils.

Guided Meditation for Full Body Relaxation and Stress Relief


     I love meditating. It's calming. It's relaxing. It's rejuvenating. It's clarifying. And it's also difficult to do at times.

     Honestly, I sometimes don't have the time to do it. But when I do, I go full out. I will find one that feeds and nourishes my soul; one that hits me right at my core, and makes me feel more at peace with myself and my life.
     Because of my love of meditation, I decided to create one (or more! - I have created more and are putting each one together as I find the time to do so) that would help provide relaxation to others. We suffer from stress every day; whether it's physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual. So, why not have something to listen to that would allow us to feel relaxed throughout our entire being? All I want is for each one of us to experience peace within our mind, body, and spirit. That's not too much to ask for, right?
     I didn't think so.

     Please check out this guided meditation. Allow yourself time for yourself.  Enjoy.

Burn Those Intentions to Manifest

     "What you think, you become." 
--a paraphrase from one of Buddha's teachings.

     It's true. People have the power to control their minds and their lives. And sometimes those lives can change in an instant, especially depending upon what you're thinking about. When you focus on the negative and what you don't want to happen, the negative and your "undesires" are always what happens.  Same goes for positivity and all things good. If you think it, it will manifest.

     The same can be said when you write things down. In fact, the chances of manifestation are increased exponentially once it is written down. There is something that happens energetically on a global scale that puts things in motion.

     For the past few months, I (as well as some of my clients) have written down things I've (we've) been wanting to let go of and release, so that I (we) can allow the new to come in. It's been a wonderful journey thus far. I've noticed some changes already, and I am constantly wishing for more to happen. Well, I expect miracles to occur rather soon. A short while ago I decided to burn all of my releasements. The act of burning tells the Universe that you're ready to let go of the old and whatever else you don't need, so that the magic can happen! And boy, I cannot wait for more magic to happen!

     Do you believe in magic? Life starts to happen once you do. I'll keep you tuned in to what magic starts occurring for me. :)

Better Health is at Your Fingertips, Literally!

     So, cold and flu season is still upon us. Ugh. Thankfully (knock on wood) I have yet to experience any cold-like symptoms this season.  I, however, have worked on several clients who have been experiencing cold-like symptoms (If you've got flu-like symptoms, stay home!).

     During their massage treatments I have trigger sinus pressure points to help reduce inflammation and open up their sinus passageways.  This will allow any excess mucus to flow through and out of your body.  Triggering these sinus points is something you can do from the comfort of your own home.  I decided to make a little video of it to show you how you can help yourself! And believe it or not, it is actually all in your fingertips! Watch below :)

Massage can Alleviate Symptoms of Vertigo

     Vertigo is the feeling of dizziness that can be accompanied by nausea, loss of balance, and loss of hearing.  I, unfortunately, suffer from Vertigo, and, more unfortunately, am experiencing an episode right now due to a dental visit I had yesterday.

     I sat in a dental chair at a slightly upside angle and when I was propped back up into a seated position, those symptoms mentioned above weighted down on me in a nanosecond.  The hygienist didn't notice that I had turned as white as my coat.  And since then I have had numerous occasions of dizziness, most notable when I bend my head forward or backwards, and when I lie down.  I will be receiving a Chiropractic adjustment later this afternoon, thankfully.

     I found an article published by Livestrong.  It's a sort of "how-to" on Massage and its benefits to those who suffer from Vertigo.  It helps to alleviate the symptoms, so that you are able to function a little more normally.  Please read this article if you suffer from Vertigo, or if you know someone that does.  You can even share this blog entry with them.  I would be more than happy to help.  I know what you're going through.

Archangel Chamuel, Shoveling, and Massage! Oh My!

     I sat in front of the Archangels & Ascended Masters book again on Sunday.  I wanted to connect with another spiritual being for the week, and landed upon Archangel Chamuel.  His name means, "He who sees God." The Archangel of pure love, Chamuel can lift you from the depths of sorrow and help you find love in your heart. He helps us to renew and improve existing relationships as well as finding our soul mates. Chamuel works with us to build strong foundations for our relationships (as well as careers) so they're long-lasting, meaningful and healthy. You'll know he's with you when you feel butterflies in your stomach and a pleasant tingling in your body.

      And I'm happy to work with him this week.  He has helped me to emotionally release myself from a past relationship, as well as become more open to the opportunities of new love.  I have found over the course of a few days that my professional relationships are growing stronger.  I have been doing more networking, which is fantastic! I love that I have decided to "pick this up" again.  I love seeing how each week plays out; how these awesomely, bad ass beings have guided and helped me.

     Another way they (especially Chamuel) have helped me (in regards to my business) is through my community outreach.  I've been reaching out to the world through the interwebs, most notably: YouTube.  Earlier this week, I posted a little video on a wonderful tip to help you shovel through this winter season.  Check it out:

     If the video upload didn't work (or isn't showing up), please click on this link to watch it: Bend Those Knees, Please! 

     Another little video I've put together is on Scalp Massage and its benefits, specifically if you or someone you know suffers from headaches and migraines.  Check this out, too: A Scalp Massage
Okay, so the video upload wouldn't function properly for this one.  Not sure why.  But that's okay.  You can still watch it by clicking on that link. 

     Enjoy the videos! I promise you they're quite helpful and informative.  Please share it with others. Thank you :)

Reflexology - What is it?

     I'm sure some, if not most, of you have heard of Reflexology.  But I'm also sure that many of you have no idea what it actually is and what it can do for you.  I'd like to take a brief moment to explain to you what it is and its benefits.  And maybe after reading this, you'll decide if it is something you'd like to try or not!

     Per the Wikipedia definition, Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving the application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques.  It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work affects a physical change to the body.

     So, think of it like a form of Massage Therapy, though separate and distinct.  Some benefits of Reflexology include:
  • Brings balance to normalize the body's organs, glands, and other functions of the body
  • Reduces stress and promotes relaxation
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Assists in managing chronic pain
  • Encourages the body to release and expel toxins and metabolic waste
  • Encourages a sense of well being
  • Can be a preventative modality
  • Is a complimentary and integrative tool to allopathic and homeopathic practice
     It is quite relaxing, if I do say so myself.  At times, it can be painful because certain zones or meridians on the feet will indicate areas of the body that need more work, or need more "flushing." But it does produce a relaxation effect, and I have personally and professionally found it to be quite beneficial.  I will incorporate a little bit of it during a massage session.  But in general, if you want to experience a full effect, I feel it would be in your best interest to see a certified Reflexologist.  I see my friend, Helen, at her office: Healing Place in Medfield, MA.  She's amazing and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to this form of healing.  If you're interested in learning more about it, please visit her website: www.healingplacemedfield.com.
