Monday’s Message~Spiritual Understanding~April 20, 2015

Spiritual Understanding_MM_EssentialEnergyHealingSPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING

This beautiful card is from Doreen Virtues’ Archangel Oracle Card Deck.

Interesting, usually the card will “fly” out of the deck, but this morning it promptly positioned itself sideways. 

The sideways card tells you that your biggest challenge will be with this path.

Archangel Raziel:  “I’m bringing you esoteric information and symbols, and helping you understand spriritual truths.”

“Your spiritual understanding is rising to another level, as you open up to new ways of looking at life.  Keep an open mind and let go of limited thinking and illusions.  Pay attention to signs – information that comes to you three times or more.  Notice geometric shapes and symbols in your physical and psychic vision.  Know that your increased awareness may shift your relationships and career goals.  I’ll guide you through these changes so your life mirrors your inner experiences.”

Archangel Raziel is the wizard and alchemist of the archangel realm.  Raziel helps us understand ideas that defy normal logic.  He expands and challenges everyday thinking in ways that ultimately have healing effects.  If you hunger for deep spiritual understanding, ask Raziel to enter your dreams.

My message to you:  If you are having difficulty in trusting message that you have received, to trust in those message.  Know they are meant for you.  Archangel Raziel will support you to uncover truths and secrets in your subconscious.  This is your challenge and why the card was sideways with the reading.  You may need to sit quietly with yourself to hear these messages.

Challenges in our life can manifest in many ways.  Perhaps you’re not yet on your spiritual path?  A Reiki class can support you in starting your spiritual path, a deeper knowledge of just knowing and trusting what comes to you.  


Sending you wishes that your Christmas Sparkles

Sending you wishes that your Christmas sparkles with moments of love, laughter and goodwill, May 2015 be full of contentment and joy. 

I would like to take a moment to say Thank You for being here with me!

The holiday season is upon us. And for those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, nature has already gone  into its dormant phase.  Mother Earth is hibernating. The trees have shed their leaves, snow covers the ground here in most of Alberta.This should be a time when we too seek solitude, go within, and take a little time off. It’s what our bodies want, it’s what our minds crave; yet, most of us ignore the signs, putting in ever longer hours as the days grow increasingly shorter.   For most people, it’s CRAZY BUSY. Stores are blaring holiday music and telling you there’s just a few shopping days left ’till Xmas. Companies are cranking away to make their end-of year financial goals. Families and friends are making plans to visit and celebrate. Social calendars have booked up.  And while our human ways can feel productive and even celebratory at holiday time, it’s also quite exhausting for most people.Not to mention that we are running COUNTER to the slower rhythms of nature at this time of year. Winter is meant of be a time of REST!
Yes, I said REST.
This is a word we seem to have forgotten in our fast-paced Western Culture. We are moving and lightning speed and multi-tasking like mad. We are doing MORE with LESS support. And most of us are really pretty tired.
In nature, we celebrate the changing of the seasons. And every farmer knows that a recipe for getting an healthy abundant crop is to leave the fields fallow for a period of time. But it’s not that nothing is happening during these fallow periods. The soil is regenerating. The nutrients are building back up. The plants are building their internal infrastructure and their root system is expanding beneath the ground. Without this fallow time, nature could not come out in her full splendor next Spring-with bountiful crops and glorious flowers.
We humans aren’t so different. We also need deep periods of stillness, rest, and “down time.” But our culture doesn’t really celebrate these things. With only 2 weeks of vacation a year at most jobs, there’s time for little more than a few family visits or a quick vacation.
So we keep pushing and pushing. And many of us, including me, have ended-up burnt out, unhealthy and generally not taking very good care of US. I was reading an article recently where it stated that approximately 80% of people today will experience adrenal fatigue in their lifetime. Wow. 
So if you want to keep up your big, bright life. If you want to fully show-up for your family and your friends; if you want to make a big difference, you have really got to REST my friends. And nurture yourselves! This is not selfish behavior, but totally REQUIRED for folks who are going to be putting out a lot into the world. And I know a bit about all of you-you GIVE a lot. And you’ll burnout FOR REAL if you don’t charge up those batteries.
So here’s my suggestions of key holiday gifts to YOURSELF. If you fill up your own cup so that you are radiant and abundant, this will be nothing but FABULOUS for you, your family, and your work.

10 Tips For Holiday Self-Nurturance

1. Sleep a lot! I highly recommend averaging 9-10 hours of sleep per night-at least for a little while. You might think I am off my rocker, but just try it for a few days. You will thank me later. 


2. Get regular bodywork (a.k.a. Reiki). Not just once a year on your birthday.  I normally receive a reiki session and a massage, at least once a month – If I could I would go every other week. 
3. Take a day of Sabbath. I suggest every week, but at least every other week. When I say “Sabbath,” I mean a day with no plans, no “home projects,” no laundry. Just a day where you get to do whatever would bring you the greatest joy or satisfaction in the moment. Yoga class? Spontaneous hike? Read a book? If you have kids, you will probably need to drop them at a friend’s house for the day to make it possible. And you can reciprocate the favor the next week.         
4. Uplevel your fragrance with essential oils.We all want to smell yummy, but I encourage you to toss a few of those chemical perfumes and opt for some essential oils. Essential Energy Healing is now carrying IN STOCK, Chakra Essential Oils and a few new High Vibrational Blends like The Rainbow Blend, which is a great balance and harmonizer for the body.  It seems to be my clients favorite as well!  These oils make a great holiday gift too. You can get them  here:  http:// essentialenergyhealing.ca/ chakra-essential-oils/ or stop by!    

5. Expand in front of the fire. Let yourself just lay on the floor in front of a cozy fire with a lot of pillows and some blankets. This can be a great opportunity to expand your consciousness and engage your intuition. I like to ask deep soul questions into the fire, then watch for the shapes and images that appear in the flames. One can interpret those images as answers to the questions posed-a beautiful collaboration between you and the greater Spirit of life.
6. Try a weekly resorative yoga class at a local studio. For those of you unfamiliar with restorative yoga, this is not a dynamic faced-paced yoga-cize class for fat burning. No, not at all. It’s more like doing a restorative “nap time” in some gentle stretch positions, but with lots of props and support. Now entering the chill zone!  http://www. goodkarmayogaclass.com/
7. Support your spirit with flower essences.Those who are energetically sensitive will especially notice the effects. I’ve been using a common blend called “Rescue Remedy” made by Bach. 
8. Take long baths. After a stressful day, my favorite activity is a long bath with candle light and some mellow music   I have been using Pink Himalayan Sea salts in my bath for years, and they are great.  You can add some relaxing essential oils such as lavender. Let yourself soak for a good while-at least 30 minutes.
9. Enjoy a coconut lube job. After that long bath I mentioned above, try topping it off with an slippery layer of coconut oil-straight out of the food pantry! It’s especially nice if you take time to apply it slowly to your body, imagining you are sending love to every part of your body as you apply the oil. This oil will leave your skin feeling so soft and supple, and it can be used at night in your hair-if it’s dry or color treated.  And it smells and tastes great! You can get it at a health food store and is usually found near the olive oil. Mmmm…                                                                                                                                                                                                          
10. Celebrate the Winter Solstice  Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year. It’s a time to celebrate the darkness and its stillness, while celebrating our connection to the Earth and the return of the light.  On this night we have an opportunity to name and release those situations or patterns which are ready to be “lost into the night.”  We have an opportunity to symbolically die and reborn. You might check around in your local area to see if there’s a local Winter Solstice gathering, or create your own alone or with friends.You can check out some ideas with this  Winter Solstice2014 Ritual  

Monday’s Self-Care Messages-Be willing to give up good for great!


Patience and I have always had a peculiar kind of a relationship. I guess you can say,  I’ve never really mastered the whole waiting thing.

There have been many, many times had I been too angry, annoyed, complained, lost my temper, gotten irritated, and missed out on what could’ve been the best thing that ever happened to me; all because I didn’t want to wait for it to show up?

I have actually grown in many was, but it hasn’t always been easy, but I am grateful for the good and bad experiences alike!  I am ever so blessed that in my quest to find patience, I found Reiki, which has assisted me with patience and understanding that good things DO come to those who take on a new outlook on patience!

Patience is synonymous with tolerance. I’m lucky to be on the path of learning to achieve it. I used to be and on occasion, can still be a very impatient person but I found out that good things come to those who can wait – it just makes you appreciate them even more.  For me, right now I am working on having patience in my own personal healing.  I continue to do daily Reiki, yoga and aromatherapy for my Sacred Self Care in an effort to combat Chronic Sinus Infections I’ve been having for almost a year now.  I used to expect to feel 100% immediately, but have learned to listen to my body – when I’m tired, I rest.  Patience has given me the courage to not become discouraged with my healing process when it dosn’t happen as quickly as I’d like.

Where could you use a little more patience in your life?

Dictionary.com gave this definition for patience, “The quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.
