Energy can be conjured up in many ways. As I am typing this out, I am surrounded by Siri playing a musical station featuring stringed instruments. So lovely how a violin and a viola cut through the air changing vibrations we can feel deeply. Scents attract many species into our space, the nose is keen for an animal’s survival. Essential oils permeate my cells today because I anointed myself before I started writing this blog. A candle glows as oxygen and fire do the tango they have done over thousands of years. Energy involves action in one form or another. We can amply this force by awareness, respect, and involvement (to but name a few ways)!
Grid work is a playful strategy of moving power which is circling us at every moment. Adding good intentions, directing loving suggestions, incorporating pieces of nature helps with coping in day to day life. Turning to the outdoors, taking earth magic and infusing the wonder into our energy field causes shifts in our being. Meditating on the imagery of an energy grid allows ripples and quakes in our mind’s pool of thought. Clarity fused with renewed pep is often the outcome of an energy grid. This is a remote technique and is a fun, colorful way to try out the mystique of shifting day to day life as you know it!
This morning I made time to sit with 3 of my wands out on the back deck. In an effort to strengthen my meditation practices, becoming still in nature was exactly what I needed today. Wands are excellent communicators channeling just the right frequency to help us gain harmony.
A good friend of mind has created a group which is following the practices of Tony Burroughs. This gathering has us meeting about once a month to state intentions thought up to help make for a better future for all. A deliberate attempt is made to voice in front of an audience as well as for us to hear our own desires, specific qualities, dreams, wishes, and goals. Being cautious to speak in the present with direction towards the future, positive affirmations are cast.
In the coming year, I will write about each of the ten intentions for a better world. I am not even past chapter one and loving the book. There is something special when words taken in by sight cause emotions bringing tears.
Shamanism teaches us how to use gifts nature has to offer. Nature, the oldest teacher and constant example of life, growth, inspiration, beauty, determination, and manufacturing energy. Everything has something special to share and this includes which we cannot see with the naked eye. The plants, rocks, space, elements, and animals do influence how we act and feel, so turning to them to assist us with healing will alter our well being for a better life and world. Be respectful and mindful of how you treat every part of nature. Friendships are important during all parts of our cycles.
Jewelry tends to be worn in close contact with one’s body. This personal connection is different from a stuffed animal’s power yet not do not think it any less. Many of us want to hold something to trigger a memory or receive comfort, typically from a person who has passed on. Objects are further given positive reinforcement by our need to feel love. When jewelry is handed down by generations it carries unique energies stemming from the original owner. A blend of old traditions, beliefs, blood lines, journeys, all enabling the heirloom to become an evolving mastery of life.
These comfort items will always encapsulate the intentions granted onto them for as long as they are in existence. I like to think when I parted with my childhood stuffed animals, the love inside melted down, into the earth. If my cloth companions got incinerated I wished the smoke and vapors blended with the air. As I unpack boxes featuring my ancestors glassware, the importance and pride is not lost on me. Jewelry shared from my mother makes me feel stronger in my core either wearing or simply looking at the gems. Since everything is energy, why not always build an energetic wave in a positive manor? Keep or send comfort things away with love and joy always.
The easiest comfort qualifier, filled with love comes from our childhood. Most likely you still have something, a stuffed animal or a blanket you once held close when you were an infant. Cute nick names are often given to prized possessions setting them apart from other common cuddles. As you aged, that wooby or Mr. Flopsy got a little ragged yet gained more importance over the months.
Any item can be infused with love, regardless of the material it is made out of. Of course some compounds are easier permeated allowing the emotion to carry throughout; an example being cotton verses plastic. Gifts of stuffed animals or homemade blankets tend to be the goto items of our early days. Our caretakers recognize the soothing that happens when we are given our favorite. The softness of a worn blanket against a cheek or covering our little bodies is just the right remedy for what ails us emotionally. Love is an energy which weaves around items not lost on the children who feel and see so effortlessly.
Do you still have something from the toddler years?
My relationship with the mineral kingdom keeps on growing as I learn more and develop my bond with nature. Each day I learn more of who I am, deep within my soul. Several months ago, a video was brought to my attention of a boy (aged 7) talking about crystals grids. I watched the video with tears in my eyes from the amazement of knowledge he spoke with. HIs relationship with rocks was similar to mine, the difference was he talked so openly and freely about it where as I tend to keep to myself. He has gotten a lot of recognition and developed his voice as more videos have been recorded. I’m sure you will enjoy looking up articles and events he is part of. Adam, The Crystal Grid Maker, has helped me realize the conversations or inner truths do happen as easily as we breath.
I had a private energy transmission with a wise woman who brings clean water to the people of Peru. Over the years I have attended workshops Nancy Santullo has led primarily in Connecticut. Her training and life experiences resinate with me and I consider it a privilege to call her a friend. The hour session spent was so quiet and calm that she commented on the serenity when we were finished. I had felt a deep sense of peace and believed I was able to reach a level of meditation I had never gone into before. Generally it is difficult for me to sit still. Over the years, my aging has slowed me down considerably. Very rarely are self pampering appointments done with little talking on my part. With Nancy, I was at ease while maintaining a place of awareness I would consider transcendental.
My new understanding of meditation achieved from last Friday still has me reflecting on that hour’s magical shifts. The art form of being still has finally sunk into my soul which I deem a spiritual awakening. Looking up Transcendental Meditation, it’s a practice founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and only correctly learned from trained certified personal. Of course there are books and many research programs from the 70’s to the present validating the benefits of Transcendental Meditation (TM).
From the Mayo Clinic as appears on the TM website:
“Transcendental meditation is a simple, natural technique… This form of meditation allows your body to settle into a state of profound rest and relaxation and your mind to achieve a state of inner peace, without needing to use concentration or effort.”
For the calendar’s L-O-V-E month, I thought I would offer up a caring deal for those of you seeking energy work.
There are a few choices you have for taking me up on a reduced session this month. Being local to CT makes holding a face to face meeting something we can plan for. I wrote about what to expect from spending an hour with me on WordPress several years back. Every experience is different as is every time we work together. I have changed my craft but the base, the main components are still the same. What you may find different with me verses other practitioners you have encountered is my willingness to listen to my intuition, guides, and guest speakers.
If travel around Connecticut U.S.A is not in your future, please know there are other ways we can communicate sending healing energies your way. Everyone, no matter where they live or what extra time their calendar allows can benefit from remote work. Energy is free flowing. We know it works well through power lines being noticeable throughout our landscape with large power stations and transformers. Like radio waves, broadcasting or beaming healing energy shares a similar movement though the air. I wrote a short piece on this blog recently about the Reiki practice of formulating a grid. Another way to transmit messages and helpful inspirations is though shaman journeying.
Either way you choose energy work, I am sure you will find it fun and helpful on many levels. If interested, I can go into more detail in the comments area. Please know we can chat privately by Email too.
I have set up two recently and marvel at the power generated from placing quartz crystals in a pattern and drawing Reiki symbols over them (usually done with a wand). Because of my relationship with the mineral kingdom, I typically add other gems to the grid. Each set up is uniquely different. I always have a fun time communicating with the crystals and learning who wants to go where and how the energy should flow by adjusting points and positions. The Antahkarana Symbol (above) is the base for the crystals with other mineral friends joining in and placed here and there.
When I feel the personalized grid is at it’s peak, I take a picture to share with the individual who requested the remote Reiki treatment. For respect of privacy, I do not share any of these photos on social media. Therefore, you probably have not seen this aspect of my energy work I adore. I would be happy to set one up on your behalf! The grid is great for energy balancing, wiggling out stagnancy within our systems, shifting inner focus, healing wounds known and unrealized, giving extra pep to our bodies, and of course many other pieces not fully recognized to assist us to become greater.
Edit adding in February 2018 to share more information on my grid development and set up, please know change is very important with energy work. Nature does not stay the same, life does not stay the same, methods alter and switch. Over the years, I’ve used different designs other than the Antahkarana which I originally learned with. Other metaphysical tools have come in and out of grid set-ups with sound (vibration) being a notable addition to this remote work. A detailed write up and pictures are sent to you daily for as long as the grid is active (minimum of 3 days).
