A Challenge to Overcome? Or a Gift for Integration…

A Challenge to Overcome? Or a Gift for Integration…

A friend of mine, Vito Mucci shares some really beautiful insights to ponder with us on the daily… one of his most recent posts was about how someone’s diagnosis is not so much of a challenge to overcome, but possibly more of a lesson or tool to be integrated.

I personally can attest to that. Just because I haven’t been clinically diagnosed with anything doesn’t mean I would receive a clean bill of health in the mental department. LOL In fact, I have had my share of ups and downs in my life, and have even been put on medication for ADD or ADHD as a child, been prescribed meds for anxiety and depression in my young adulthood, and pain pills for symptoms in my body that, on a soul level, were a cry out for love and attention.

Some of the things we carry (diagnosed, or otherwise) are not really as burdensome as they are perceived by the public eye. Due to the labeling, or diagnosing these symptoms are given, speaking from the medical standpoint, one may be diagnosed clinically insane! And in the view of impeccability, its nearly impossible to dodge this bullet completely. We are born in a world where everything is already decided for us on a societal level, whether we agree with it or not, we have had to adopt or adapt somehow to the proverbial “norm”. In actuality, or on a more multi-dimensional level of existence, an individual quite possibly is a highly sensitive and psychic human, dealing with major sensory overload. So, to me this says that our mental health, based on a clinical diagnosis, isn’t always what serves best for any given individual.

What would serve them, and all of us really, is to learn more about this phenomena and how these individuals perceive the world around them. We just might learn a thing or two. And if allowed, we can drop the label or sentencing of an “illness”, embrace the fact that we are all quite literally “insane” or “ill” to some degree.

What’s needed more is real attention, connection, and learning how to integrate these tools of each individuals personality. Some of which really are gifts, or abilities to sense non material phenomena around us. Not to say that medication isn’t helpful and needed at times, because they are, especially for an individual who has been so sensory overloaded they have lost a grip on all of the 3 dimensional reality. But, more seeking to understand the person, not the diagnosis, would be highly beneficial.

I believe a soul chooses to come in with certain challenges or abilities. From physical, mental or emotional disturbances… PTSD and depression, I would say are not an ability per say, but a backfire or a by-product of an ability, misunderstood. After all we are a product of our environment, and in the case where one is not embraced, encouraged and nurtured for their abilities, we can begin the process of self doubt, lies, false truths and programming which really started the moment we entered this world.

Being highly sensitive myself, I could easily have been put on medication on many occasions in my life for various reasons, as I mentioned above. We live in a time and a world where sensitivity is not necessarily cherished, appreciated, or embraced. Until now. I see it shifting quite a bit. I’m sure you have as well. People waking up and wanting to understand these things about their loved ones or of themselves.

Feeling more deeply than before, seeing things you maybe never saw before, hearing things that’s aren’t really there… smelling a scent that is not really around you… these are all sensitivities that we have innately as human beings. Even animals have them, they just don’t have the filters we do and the cognizance as we do. To be human is such a powerful gift in itself. We are some of the most powerful beings alive in our Universe and yet we use our power for what? We are the only animals on the planet that have the ability to speak. To spell. To cast spells. That subject is for another time… but think about it, we are so powerful! Moving on…

What’s weird to me is when I hear of people wanting to ‘one up’ other sensitive beings, claiming to have an ability or gift that they don’t. Ya sounds super weird but it does happen. It’s now like the new way of “keeping up with the Jones’s”, spiritual one upping. Or the shame that one may receive for claiming to hold a gift, that as well, to me is so weird. Why would one shame another for being sensitive? The ego is a powerful tool… another subject I’ll touch on one of these days…

We are all sensitive beings to some degree. Hence why I say we all could be considered insane, or ill, in one way, shape or fashion. So, the idea that people are now starting to compare sensitivities is just the way the pendulum swings… people wanting to be more sensitive then they are, which is truly beautiful to me. It means to me that you are ready to learn more about the unseen world around and IN you.

We can and will find a balance. I truly believe we are paving the forefront for our children, as our parents did for us. And our children’s children will be the ones that will benefit from the fruits of our labors. I hope to witness it in this lifetime. In the meantime, I encourage you to seek to understand more about yourself. Seek to love yourself more. Because when you love yourself, it’s so much easier to love others. Compassion comes naturally, service is a natural response, and it ripples outward, farther than you can see.

I love you.

Thank you Vito for the inspiration and sharing your wisdom and insights with us so freely.

Be the love you seek in the world

 

Be the love you seek in the world.

We all have heard the saying, and I’m pretty sure we all have been the recipient and the giver of random acts of kindness one timer another in life. But have you ever wondered just how deeply that your kindness has effected someone? It is the little things, after all, that really count on days when we want to throw our hands up with the “ah fuggits“, as my father in law calls them. Like helping someone carry supplies, or clean up a spill, sharing some loose change with a person who’s short a few cents in the check out lane. How often do we reach out to make a new friend? If not, why so? Or check in on an old friend to see how they are? Relationships make the world go round. These little notions are all in the service and light of Love.  💖

 

I was blessed to make a new friend today. I have new people asking to be my friends and connect every day, but this one was different, and timely. We quickly connected, engaged in a conversation, and it was meaningful, powerful, and heart felt. It all started just by sending me a meme wishing love an healing to m life. This person saw me for who I really am and shared their intuitive thoughts with me. I felt seen and heard. It deeply moved me to tears. 😭

What this person didn’t know is that I woke up this morning feeling pretty bummed out, grumpy, fascinated with my kids and their morning rituals, or lack there of and still tired. 😔 I was not my best self this morning, being totally honest I was pretty stuck in a rut for a good minute there. Hey, I’m human, we all have those moments, let’s just keep it real. 😉

“As Humans, being seen heard, and felt is so important for our human species. We truly are tender, fragile souls.”

This persons unexpected kindness, their perception of me shared from the heart, helped me to shift my own perception of myself. They took the time to share suggestions to help me, guided me through some really great exercises for clearing my energy, and to share in the oneness that we truly are… This lifted my mood, my energy and my gratitude back to where it belongs. I was in a state of happiness and joy. I was needing this interaction more than I realized. Being seen and heard is so important for our human species. We truly are gentle, fragile souls. More kindness is needed. True soul connections. Validation, Oneness vs Separation. In this type of interaction we find safety in being vulnerable, being real, and exchanging our light frequencies, and witness our divine connection to all.

We shared our gratitude for one another. I thanked them for showing up when they did, for just being there for me right when I needed it; You never really know how much that one small act of kindness can really go so far in another persons life… I have had the best day today! And I feel so full of peace, understanding and support from my guides. They sent me an angel to be a messenger of remembrance. Needless to say, I am grateful.

Kindness truly is so very powerful, doesn’t cost a dime, and is totally underrated. For everyone you touch, there is a ripple effect, so, as the saying goes, “Spread that shit like wild fire!” When Love shows up unexpectedly, it truly can change a persons whole day. Be the love you seek in the world.

Thank you to my dear new friend, I appreciate you, I see you too, and I thank you. Thank you Spirit for sending me an earth angel to remind me of my worthiness, my innate ability, truth.

Deep Inner Reflecting and Re-Calibrating our “Fun Scale”…

RE-Calibrating our “Fun Scale”

I’ve been playing with my logos on an app that’s pretty fun! I figured I would share them, why not?! What do you think? It’s fun, if anything, and that counts for something!


To say fun is important to me is an understatement.

Fun for this Aries sun, Gemini moon, is VERY important.

I used to gage what’s not in alignment with my truth by weighing it on my #funscale…not always accurate obviously, but at the time it made sense. I have learned over the years that I have been limiting my fun-ness! Here comes the “Deep thoughts, by Katie” moment…

First of all, my fun scale was relative to my emotions. Emotions are indeed a tool, or better yet, our inner compass, gaging if we are in alignment or if we are out of sync. Our emotions can be fickle, they shift often through out the day, especially if you’re a woman. Sometimes, our emotions can be deceiving. We may think they’re showing us “this is not in alignment with your truth” when indeed they may be saying “here’s an old wound that needs your attention”. We react to emotions, rarely creating them consciously on a regular basis but are known to do so from time to time when needed, such as pushing through a work shift, or if you’ve ever worked in customer service of any kind, We all have faked that smile, wanted to scream from between our teeth, but pushed through. (don’t lie, you know you’ve faked it occasionally too, we all do).

So, here’s a “fun” story.

One night, in conversation with my now husband, we were talking about our journey together thus far and how much we’ve grown as individuals… he really has an amazing self awareness. One of the things he exceeds me in is Face to Face conflict. Now this is a time that our emotions really may not be saying any truth, but ego is stepping in and protecting us from some kind of perceived harm. This is a good time for discernment with your emotions, not responding from them.

Until several years ago, I strayed away from what made me feel uncomfortable: difference of opinion, obscure perceptions, conflicts of interest or battles of the ego, calling someone out even if it was right and just, even sticking up for myself! Right before Ray came into my life, I was doing a lot of this work with my shadow self, owning where I didn’t speak my truth, in turn creating problems not only for myself but for others down the road, living in a lie I led myself into or my parents led me in, believing false teachings or projections of others pain, their emotions, to be my truth. I was not necessarily physically approaching these people that hurt me, but energetically releasing the blame and shame, and loving them, myself and the experience for the growth it provided me.

It’s no wonder I attracted a man such as Ray, he’s good at this stuff! And, we always seem to attract the teachers we need when we are ready, right? He helped me a lot with this process and continues to impress and inspire me with his ninja mind and “fun meter” skills.

Getting really clear about what it is in ourselves that we are seeking: not outwardly, but inward is really key. It’s not them, it’s me, or it’s not you, it’s them! This is part of radical self awareness and acceptance. This is part of being able to love ourselves, in turn, love everyone for who they really are.

So, back on track: He loves calling people out, and, get this, being called out! Weird, I know! It must be a Virgo thing, or something but this alone has fascinated me to no end about him… he really is a rare and unique breed, the unicorn male.

I, on the other hand, have leaned more toward avoiding situations like this pretty much my whole life. I avoided conflict like the plague. It’s always been so uncomfortable, frightening, and created even a PTSD like response to my system. Symptoms like this had wreaked havoc through out my life. Now I know that my “PTSD symptoms” are a red flag from my soul saying “look at me! Pay attention to this! I need attention here badly!” I have worked on really leaning into that space of discomfort instead, for quite some time now, and I slowly but surely have seen a shift. Where as I used to think “well, this is not in alignment with my truth”, and avoid it at all costs, I now take a step back and observe with curiosity. How does this tie into my fun scale? I’m getting there, I promise.

When in relationship, we can get triggered sometimes, (that’s essentially one of the major points of relationships) they can lead us to those sticky uncomfortable places. Ray has mastered his mind enough to where now He LOVES it! He’s having a blast, getting down to the nitty gritty of our past wounds and false beliefs, calling me out and pointing out my flaws and short comings… and I’m trying to resist curling up in a ball or hiding under a rock! Mind you, I can have the same conversation with someone else, but when it comes to talking about it with my husband, the man I love and adore, who I want to spend the rest of my life with, I want to hide? Why?!

Because part of me was afraid he wouldn’t love me if it were true. Isn’t this a sad truth we all more than likely have experienced at one time or another. Fear of truly being seen, and not being accepted and loved for who we really are. This is false.

I looked at him in disbelief, having feelings of being so incredibly vulnerable and perplexed by his “fun meter“?! Part of me was trying really hard to avoid my ego taking over, because I knew he was right! Where another part of me was really trying to hear him genuinely, from the Heart. I got defensive and hurt feelings, and proceeded to give him a dose of his own medicine,

“How do you like THAT, Mr. Wallen”

I thought to myself. HA! Then, of all the things, he says:

“This is really Fun!”

In all seriousness. I couldn’t believe it. And, I couldn’t help it. I burst into laughter, I about died. I laughed far too hard for someone who was having a deep intense conversation with their partner. Like belly rolling on the ground kind of laughter LOL.

But.

I had a break through! After I let my triggered emotions subside, and I could digest what he was saying with a compassionate heart for him AND myself, I got it! And that felt really good! I said to him:

“You have a twisted way of looking at fun, if you think THIS is fun”.

Oy vey! He reiterated to me how Fun it really was (and still is) for him. I finally got it when he share his perception with me. Here’s Rays golden nugget, his reasoning and the truth that can be found in these sticky situations: It’s in these passionate, vulnerable conversations that:

A. We (our partner or person we are relating to) get to know the other better. Really, they help us get to know OURSELVES better!

B. Which helps us communicate better, getting to know each other’s deepest inner needs. Which: with an open heart and mind:

C. Always leads to growth! For us as individuals, and as a couple or partnership.

I had to sit back and think about that for a minute.

“Wow!” I was now laughing for a whole new reason! It really was fun! I am becoming crazy(er)?!

I thought, “not only does this guy truly thrive on TRUTH but he has mastered his ego AND his brain enough to where he can, in an instant, see the gift in every conflict, debate, or alternate perception. He really has learned to love this shi(f)t.”

What a trip. What a GIFT! So, maybe I had been looking at it all wrong?! Maybe…Fun is found in many places!? That too, is all just a shift in perception, right?!

It is SO fun when we hit a wall and see it for what it is, a challenge to be tackled, a chance to grow! Time to rise, climb, and shine, right?! It is so true! Growing is FUN, and fascinating, and fabulous, in all its painful aches and stretch marks. These are the places where the MAGIC can really begin to UNFOLD, our perceptions can SHIFT, we can see the AHAS and Epiphanies rolling through… WE BLOW OUR OWN MINDSWe blow those false beliefs about ourselves or about the world right on out of our brains. Rewriting, RE-WIRING, RE-Training, UN-learning, DE-programming to RE-program! YAY!

WE BLOW OUR OWN MINDS! We blow those false beliefs about ourselves or about the world right on out of our brains. Re-writing, REWIRING, Re-Training, UN-Learning, DE-Programming to RE-Program!

YAY! 

So, we invite you: Next time you’re thinking “Well, this sucks to no end” or “Omg, I am so frustrated!” switch that frustration to “FASCINATING!” Turn the ‘closed up’ program running your Brain into a moment to open up to WONDER. Even the “not so fun” things can become truly exciting moments of growth. And THAT is really FUN. This is by no means to say I will be giving up fun logo making, dancing, playing laughing and straight up being a goober for this new found kind of fun, not by ANY means! But I have widened my perspective on how to look at these stickier situations in life and I hope we have helped you along your journey too. That is also fun for me, and I do not plan on stopping that fun any time soon, either!

I wonder what you are pondering on this. Let us know what you think, or share an experience where you witnessed the shift in your own perceptions to more Truth and Freedom of thought in the comments.

Thank you so much, and Many Crystal Infused Blessings,

Katie & Ray

1. Rain – Purification –

No matter whether is is a light shower or a deluge, rain cleanses and purifies. The moisture that has evaporated from the various bodies of water on the planet and was drawn into the atmosphere now returns to Earth as liquid precipitation in Natures’ vast and comprehensive water-recycling program. Depending on when and where the rain falls, it can come as a welcome relief or a nuisance.
Even the air smells fresh after a good rain. It also brings in clean water, which provides needed sustenance for the plants, animals, and humans. At its most intense, rainstorms arrive as an avalanche of water, often accompanied by great and powerful winds, with considerable flooding and destruction as an unfortunate consequence of Nature’s impersonal balancing act. What is purged makes way for new life to appear.
Purifying your mind, body, and spirit is the task that is put before you. Purify your mind by identifying a prominent belief you carry about yourself that inhibits  you from being fully engaged in life, from showing up 100 percent of the time. Purify your heart by allowing yourself to breathe in and out blessings and forgiveness so that you can love even more deeply.
Let yourself feel your grief – truly feel it – so that the rivers of your tears become miniature baptisms that help heal the wounds in your soul. If necessary, detoxify your body  (the temple and seat of the soul) by changing your diet, doing a cleanse for a few days, or simply drinking more water. increasing the daily amount of water you drink with deep appreciation for its purpose will revitalize your spirit.
It is no wonder that in some indigenous languages, water is called “lifeblood,” as it is so essential to every form of Life on Earth. Take some time to purify yourself.

2. Wolf – Instinct

Wolf (Instinct) is today’s oracle card and it’s message is to trust your own instincts, even if ignoring them may seem easier in the short term.
You have an innate ability to know exactly where to go, what to do and how to do it. Even though you often forget to use your instinctual abilities, you still have them! You may experience this today as a feeling of excitement, or tiredness when someone suggests an idea to you.
Sometimes its hard to trust your instincts if you have a strong feeling that you should feel or act a certain way. You may fear offending someone if you go with your instincts, but realize that this is only a social fear and your instincts really do know the best path for you. Its safe for you to trust them.
Get in touch with your instincts by meditating in nature (or just imagining yourself in nature while you meditate), and asking your instincts to reveal themselves and bring you guidance. I did this the other day and was amazed at the insights I got, as well as all the creative ideas that came flooding in! Make sure you keep a notebook and pen handy for afterwards.

3. Mountain – Strength

The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the  blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.
The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.
It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.
The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable of becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.

4. Waterfall – Effortless

Water naturally falls from higher to lower ground, eventually finding its way to the ocean.  One of nature’s most exquisite and dynamic demonstrations of this fact is the waterfall.  Graceful, powerful and effortless, she can take the breath away with her cascading beauty.  She readily flows around that which may impede.  She’s extremely patient, persistent and skillful in the way she ever so gradually shapes and carves her passageway down the slopes of the mountain.  Note how the waterfall forms ribbons that accord with the artistry of the stone faces she descends, joining the calmer pool for a rest before continuing her journey.  There is no strain or stress in this movement, the water simply follows natural law in the interaction between the formation of the precipice that she traverses and the powerful fluidity and adaptability of her flow. Effortless.

You have come to the edge of your comfort zone, there is no need to resist moving past that perceived precipice of who you are, how you can be or what you can do. Spirit is asking you to step beyond the edge and allow yourself to do so with ease.  At times physical exertion may be necessary but when performed with fluidity and grace you’ll find the movement moves you, effortlessly. Approach your current situation with awareness and grace, do not try to make it effortless as that just creates more strain. The key word here is allow, even if you are being asked to let go completely and tumble into the brink of creation itself.  You will find the waters there to be ultimately still and calm. Keep your focus on your solar plexus and your breath.  Relaxing and yielding to the movement that is occurring at any given moment makes your life effortless.

Day #23

Perspective

Spessartine Garnet

Satya Mani Quartz

Scolecite

Perspective –

12/Perspective/Archangel Chamuel – “There’s a better way! Pause for reflection and insight. Dare to be different!”

The number 12 represents: “Keep your thoughts positive about the future, as what you are thinking influences your future. This a message to keep your faith and hope strong, because these are strong determining factors right now.” (Angel Numbers 101)

Archangel Chamuel – Archangel Chamuel is known for helping people find whatever it is that they are seeking. His name means “the eyes of God”, and you can call upon him when you’re trying to understand a situation from a different perspective. (taken from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards guidebook)

This card is all about looking at things from a different perspective. Perhaps it means seeing the situation through the other person’s eyes, to understand what they are going through, or why they feel the way they do. Sometimes it means throwing out all of our preconceived notions and ideas about the way things “should” be and entertain new notions and ideas that might change the balance of the situation for the good of all involved.

We are all faced with challenges and situations that are puzzling in these ever changing times. Our old way of looking at things may not work anymore, and so we are being asked to be flexible and to soften our stance while trying to see through new eyes and with a new way of being. Let’s face it, the world our parents or grandparents knew is passing away and we are dealing with a very new reality. That means what worked in the old world will not work in the new. We have to adapt or be left behind. See through the eyes of the heart, because living from our hearts is the new reality.

When not sure of what course of action to take, step back and take the time to look at the situation, asking all the while “what would love do in this situation?” Love will never lead us astray. If we follow our hearts we are choosing the best solution for the highest good of all involved. This way of living and doing things will not be easy, it will not be readily accepted by those still functioning from the ego mind, but we are encouraged to live and have our being in love. Dare to be different! Dare to be our authentic selves in ALL situations!

Day #22

Prince of Cups

Labradorite 

Crystal Deva Tsidoel

Prince of Cups –

The Knight of Cups ( or prince in this deck) is the most feminine of the Knights; although that does not mean that he is any less of a Knight. … This Knight also looks to his emotions to provide a map for his life direction. He is someone who is ruled by his heart rather than his head.

The Knight of Cups like most if not all of the Cups suit, is an optimistic, good card to see in a reading. Like all Knights/Knights, this one often comes bearing messages. Usually these are the kind of good news that we all want to receive.

  • Optimism—Expansion—Being radiant—Positive feelings
  • Enlightenment—Vitality—Innocence—Non-criticism
  • Assurance—Energy—Personal power—Happiness
  • Splendor—Brilliance—Joy —Enthusiasm

This card is generally considered positive. It is said to reflect happiness and contentment, vitality, self-confidence and success. Sometimes referred to as the best card in Tarot, it represents good things and positive outcomes to current struggles.

A time of reflection and reliving fond memories of bygone days. Drawing nourishment and comfort from recalling playful days of childhood. Old friends re-enter one’s life, bringing pleasant surprises. Efforts of the past come to fruition. Happiness as a result of previous kindness.

The Sun is an image of optimism and fulfilment, the dawn that follows the darkest night. As the source of all life on earth, the Sun represents the source of life itself. The child playing joyfully in the foreground represents the happiness of our inner spirit when we are in tune with our truest Self. He is naked, having nothing to hide. He has all the innocence and purity of childhood. The white horse upon which the child rides represents strength and purity of spirit. The horse is without a saddle and is controlled without the use of the hands. This is a symbol of perfect control between the conscious and subconscious. The child holds an orange banner in his left hand, showing that control has passed from the conscious to the subconscious. The orange banner represents action and vibration, and the rays of the sun represent the same thing. The straight rays are action while the wavy rays represent vibration. The sunflowers in the background represent life and the fruitfulness of the spirit under the nourishment of the Sun. There are four sunflowers, representing the four suits of the Minor Arcana, as well as the four elements. The astrological correspondence to this card is the Sun, of course.

Day #20

Gaia – Nurturing

Forest – Breath

Gaia Stone – Tigers Eye

Crystal Deva Lin-fa-el

Gaia – Nurturing 

“Earth Mother, Mother Goddess, Great Goddess, Terra Mater… and Gaia. In the Greek pantheon, this magnificent being was Earth personified as a goddess. Daughter of Chaos, she was the mother and wife of Uranus (heaven). It is her body that we walk upon ever day, and the substance of our own bodies is the substance of hers. It is from Gaia that we receive everything we need for survival, which she provides for us abundantly, nurturing our body, mind and soul.

She nurtures our bodies by offering the fruit of the trees, the greens from the Earth and the air that we breathe. She nurtures our minds through her awesome physical and dynamic beauty and, as depicted in this card, by the amazing colourfulness and diversity of the world she is constantly creating and re-creating. She nurtures our souls by caressing us with her blessings each day and challenging us to be better humans through her response to our attentions and intentions.

Receiving can be a scared act if your intention is to honour Spirit. It is as holy as giving when performed with a humble and open heart. This is even truer when receiving much needed nurturing, so let others give to you. It may be a stretch to do so at times because of childhood conditioning, but that habit can be overcome. Your wounds can be healed. One way to achieve this is to nurture yourself, and allow others to nurture you.

Consider the actions you take that are self-nurturing. What comes to your mind when you really think about doing beneficial things for yourself? Set aside your ritualized habits and beliefs that restrict the pure act of allowing your body, heart, and soul to be nurtured. Lie on the Earth and ask Gaia to rock you in her bosom as you breathe with her and relax into her loving care.”

I want to also remind you that connecting to Mother Gaia can help to heal the wounds left behind from an unhealthy or toxic relationship with our physical mother. if you ever feel alone or sad about the unfortunate distance that may be between your earthly mother and you, turn to mother nature for her warm and always welcoming embrace. – Katie

 

Forest – Breath

“As we make our way across the meadow to the thicker parts of the forest, there is a subtle shift in the sensations in the body, one that might initially be barely perceptible but soon becomes undeniable. It’s nearly impossible not to take deeper breaths. The richness of the forest’s oxygen, given freely and generously from the trees (the Standing Ones) to us, is a natural exchange for the carbon dioxide we release every time we exhale. Further, the animals of the forest participate in this exchange as well in what is one of the most miraculous and remarkable collaborations between plants and animals that serve to help each other live and thrive.

The ratio of this oxygen to carbon dioxide exchange has been in balance for millennia but has been changing quite dramatically in the last several years as carbon dioxide levels have been rising. Yet there are many parts of the world where we can still enjoy the refreshing and revitalizing effects of an afternoon enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of a walk in the forest.

Through prayer and action, we can express our gratitude to these tree beings for the many gifts they provide, not the least of which is contributing to the very air we breathe. Things are different after a walk in the forest.

Your breathing is too shallow. Although it may feel natural, it is an unhealthy habit that causes this shortness of breath. When you subconsciously shorten your breath, no matter if this is habitual or triggered by some event or circumstance, it activates certain physiological signals that prepare your system for “fight or flight.” Another conditioned response to perceived danger is to hold your breath. This is your survival response, although it does not serve you to do so.

So… breathe! Inhale deeply, regardless of your concerns, worries, or problems; then let it go. Next, allow yourself to breathe a little deeper and slower a few times. Remember that every breath you inhale is a gift, and every breath you exhale is a gift. The forest is a clear reminder of how this works.”

So important to Breath my friends. Please take the time for yourself to create awareness around your breathe. Even 5 minutes a day can truly shift your energy. – Katie

 

Gaia Stone – 

“Gaia Stone or Green obsidian comes from the volcanic ash of the eruption of Mt. St. Helen’s. It is associated with the heart chakra, but can also be used to balance all the chakras. It is associated with the Goddess connection, and is thought to attract earth and nature spirits.  It is supposed to assist in bringing prosperity. Gaia Stone is given to people to assist in the self-healing of emotional wounds and traumas. It is said to carry the Earth’s energy, and is sometimes referred to as the “Soul of the Earth.”
Gaia Stone promotes loving relationships between people.  It is an ideal gift for one’s romantic partner, as its energies promote the growth of love and intimacy.  It can be used to heal tensions between parents and chidren, or between any estranged members of a family or friendship circle.  It is ideal for bringing harmonious accord to groups and can be quite useful if worn or carried into committee meetings.  Gaia stone induces compassion and diffuses anger, it dissolves the psychic barriers between ‘us’ and ‘them,’ making tolerance more possible.  It can assist one in negotiations where one must try to persuade an unsymptahetic person to understand one’s point of view.
Gaia stones are goddess stones, and one may use them to send and receive love to and from any aspect of the Divine Feminine.  They are particularly resonant with the Tibetan deity known as Green Tara, who offers love and protection to human beings.
Because they are among the purest representations of the Green Ray, Gaia Stones can be used to heal and soothe the heart and to energize the emotional body.  The Green Ray of Gaia Stone supports healthy growth on all levels of one’s inner and outer life.” Way cool!

Day #19

IXCHEL – Medicine Woman

Black Tourmaline

Crystal Deva Anu-ka-el

 

Ixchel – Medicine Woman –

 

Commanding power is not the same as demanding it.  Demanding comes from a childlike place akin to a tantrum, based upon the fear that it might be withheld.  Commanding is based upon the sure and steady knowledge that you are part of the Great Spirit’s grace and wisdom.  You’re a lightning rod that can conduct the power.  Simply connect to the power through unyielding clarity of your thought processes.  Don’t waver for a moment in your sure and steady decision to be a conduit of the power that already resides within you.  Connect to the even bigger source, and allow it to amplify your natural power.  In this way, you’re a steady connector of the Infinite, from the Infinite, and to the Infinite.  In other words, it’s all Spirit: around you, through you, and to whomever you’re healing.

Various Meanings of This Card:  You’re a healer •  You’re being healed •  This situation and/or your loved one is being healed •  Honor your healing knowledge and abilities •  Learn about healing • Teach the healing arts • Start or continue your healing practice.

About Ixchel (pronounced EE-Shell or ISH-Chell: Good to know I was pronouncing it correctly!) Ixchel has been revered since ancient times as the Mayan moon goddess, who with her husband the sun god, gave birth to all the other Mayan gods.  As the embodiment of the moon, Ixchel is intimately connected to the tides of the water.  She’s believed to control rain flow and all aspects of water.  In fact, she’s called “Lady Rainbox”, as her essence is infused in the water-droplet prisms that create rainbows.  As a mother goddess, Ixchel helps with fertility and childbirth.  She’s also a powerful healer who remembers the origin of human life upon the planet.  She can connect you to your foundational roots as a spiritual healer.
