5 steps to guarding the door to your Sacred Space

Slide1

Guarding the door

  • You start you’re morning feeling ready for your day ahead, only to find after a few hours at work you are feeling tired and agitated.
  • Sometimes people get too close when you’re going through the check out in the supermarket and you start to feel edgy but you’re not sure why.
  • And you have felt a real heaviness when you come out of a crowed place, leaving you feeling drained.

 

So what does energy have to do with my feelings being affected by others?

Our energy, over time may have mixed with energy from places you’ve been and people you have come in contact with which can subtly, and sometimes not so subtly, influence how you feel. If you have been working or living in a stressful environment you may have inadvertently taken on some of the stress, which could leave you feeling cross or annoyed. You may feel someone’s negative energy is impacting on how you live your life but you don’t know how to change it. You may feel you’re carrying a weight on your shoulders that’s not yours.

If you find you are dealing with difficult situations every day, learning these three simple empowering techniques will change your life. They did for me. When you are open and sensitive, and working closely with others, you will find you need to use clearing, protection and grounding constantly.

So what are clearing, grounding and protection?

They are three techniques that I have developed over the years to help me work with clients in stressful situations and not become immersed in their energy. It can become very draining when this happens. I use it when I am working with clients, working with spirit, clearing my chakra centres, in fact I would never not use it. It is a part of me being responsible for being a sensitive and working as a counsellor and coach.

Clearing– By clearing, you remove unwanted energy, enabling protection to stop your energy from becoming depleted and grounded so that you are not pulled in different directions. These techniques will give you a greater sense of control over your own live.

Grounding – By being grounded you are present in reality rather than your thoughts being all over the place. When you are grounded you are equally balanced between the spiritual and Earthly realms which means you can get on with your daily life in a much more harmonious way.

Golden Rose Protection -Energy Protection is very important, especially as you become more sensitive as your energy lightens. As the vibration around you increases to a higher frequency you become more like a lighthouse beacon shining out in the darkness. You attract other people with the same level of frequency, or others with a denser vibration. There is also the same possibility for any negative energy to attach to you.

The energy around our world in the ethric layer appears as a heavy and very dense fog-like substance, a bit like thick soup. When a light globe is switched on, much like someone beginning to awaken to their soul and spiritual journey, they send out a beautiful, warm, bright and gentle light through the fog and the dense energy. This attracts others in the vicinity or any negative energy that may be around. To stop this from happening and to stop you from being affected by other people’s energy, thoughts and emotions, learning to use spiritual protection will once again give you some control over what you choose to let into your sacred space. Taking the time to use spiritual protection, while being open to higher energies is important for your spiritual health.

Creating a Sacred space- It is important when doing any kind of spiritual, healing, mindfulness or counselling work that you create a space to work in and to have clear intent. There are many ways in which to do this; by using crystals, the Native American medicine wheel, asking Spirit, and for the Golden Rose Protection (higher form of white light) to surround you and so on.

This is a brief description but if you are interested in learning more about energy protection, creating a sacred space, learning about intuition, how you receive your information, auditory, visual, kinaesthetic, and much, much, more.

Are you experiencing any of these symptoms?

sunset-20398_1920

  • Heart palpitations
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Feeling sick or nauseous
  • Cold or clammy hands
  • Hot flushes or chills
  • Increased heard rate
  • Dry mouth
  • Trouble sleeping

You maybe depressed or stressed

It’s okay we have all been there at sometime.

I worked in a very stressful workplace environment and found myself the target of bulling and harassment. I was tired all the time, not sleeping, unproductive, and certainly had no clarity or peace of mind. I didn’t want to go out the front door. I cried a lot basically I gave up I couldn’t see the point. Because I was on work cover I got sent to see a psychologist who did not get me at all. In fact every time I came a way from seeing him I would be in tears. I told him I could see colours around people stupid thing to do really but I was so vulnerable. Lucky I didn’t end up in the mental health unit I was working in.

One of the things I learnt from him though was that sensitive people should not be working in really stressful environments.

  • I started walking out in nature round a lake near us. I would sit and watch the ducks.
  • I meditated and talk to my guide (didn’t tell the psychologist that though).
  • I count my blessings that I have these abilities as they helped me through this period.

Learning meditation, relaxation techniques, and positive psychology, was a lifesaver for me and I could not imagine my life without them now.

My friend convinced me to go and do a transpersonal counselling course with her which was the best thing I ever did. I always told her that if I could find something that was close to Spiritual Psychology I would go. Transpersonal Counselling is.

For you it to will pass

Don’t be afraid to go and see someone and get some professional help. Find someone who gets you and can help. It won’t work if you don’t like them. Keep looking. There will be someone there.

There is no shame in it.

Self-care management techniques:

  • Walk it doesn’t have to be far, but far enough to get the endorphins working ( about 20minutes).
  • Use relaxation techniques.
  • Lessen the amount of caffeine taken daily.
  • Eat a healthy diet: three main meals a day – don’t just graze.
  • Be kind to yourself.
  • Do something just for you.
  • Have your hair cut.
  • Soak in the bath.
  • Sit in the sun.
  • Do nothing.
  • Do yoga or Tai Chi.
  • Ask a friend to look after your children.
  • Never be afraid or ashamed to ask for help; you are human, not superhuman.
  • Talk to someone about how you are feeling, don’t bottle it up.
  • Walking, jogging, and running really help with mental wellness.
  • Meeting up with friends is vital. even if you don’t feel like it. It will get better.
  • Keep up your interests to whatever extent you can.
  • Keep a journal this really helps.

Often the symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression and grief are due to us living our lives out of balance and needing to take responsibility for our own choices in life. But it can all be changed. There is always hope, if you are willing to make a positive difference in your life.

How not feel drained between clients

wallpaper-830417_1280

This is a problem that seems to be becoming more talked about especially for Healers, Empathetic Counsellors, Mentors, Intuitive readers and so on.

So what is happening?

Sensitive’s, emphatics and those who are intuitive are starting to feel things more deeply, sense things that they weren’t open to before and much, much more aware.

 How can we look after ourselves?

We probably all have some ritual that we do or protection that we use, but we are finding that they no longer work. Just as we need to up grade our virus protector on our computers, the same thing applies to our use of energy protection.

We need to change what is not working and be mindful of what our body is telling us.

  • If we need to have more time between clients then do so.
  • If our body says rest then rest, even a 10-minute rest, no reading, just closing your eyes and resting is good.
  • Make sure that you are doing some form of energy protection it is vital to protect your energy from others.
  • You may find you need more alone time.

Here is what I do.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKDy-7G1rP0

and I also go into more depth in my free e-book ‘Taking Back Control’

I do need more alone time, a lot more. This year for me has been huge even though I have known what has been happening, it still hadn’t prepared me for how it impacted on my emotions and body.

  • I meditate daily.
  • I use the Golden Rose energy for protection, which I use in conjunction with clearing and grounding and they work. It’s quick and simple.
  • We have tested this little ritual, so you give it ago for a couple of days and then stop and see what happens.

I have included a link above to a video that explains all about how to do it and why it works. If you require more protection, as sometimes you will, I also cut cords at night before going to sleep.

  • Imagine that with a knife, you are cutting the cords that are attached to your chakra centres that are not yours. Making sure you do the back and the front of the chakra centres.
  • Then imagine they are going back to where they belong.
  • Send them back with love.
  • You can also imagine that mirrors all facing outwards are surrounding you. You can use what works for you or the lot. But they need to be done frequently.

See how you go and please pass this on if it helps.

 

“Meditation just isn’t for me” and other excuses that may be holding you back from an amazing mediative experience.

South-Island-New-Zealand

I can’t sit still! My brain doesn’t stop!

I just can’t meditate.

I have started and then stopped because it doesn’t work.

Meditation doesn’t have to be long. Just learning to concentrate on you breathing helps to relax the body and mind. You don’t have to sit cross- legged on the floor. Just sitting comfortable on a chair is good. If you lie on the floor, you’re more likely to go to sleep, which defeats the purpose.

I can still hear, “but yeah I don’t have time for that”

Don’t you?

Have you ever stopped to think about what it can do for you?

Or what can happen to your body when under stress?

There are different types of meditation

Moving Meditation

We may also like to try some form of moving meditation such as doing Yoga or Tai Chi. In moving meditation you learn breathing techniques, the importance of posture, movement, flow, balance, and being centred. The art of visualisation and imagery is also practised.

Relaxation

Relaxation meditation is based on focusing attention on consecutive areas of the body and relaxing the muscles by tensing and relaxing, until the process is completed throughout the whole body. It allows the mind to be eased of the physical state of consciousness, and enjoy the heightened sense of relaxation and wellbeing

  Visualization

This is a guided visual experience that involves creating a virtual reality scene within the imagination. This may be something like peacefully swimming with the dolphins or walking in a beautiful garden. It is a good place to start when trying to quieten your mind.

Just to name a few.

The Benefits of Meditation on our health

Meditation is one of the most powerful tools we have in our modern world. The benefits of meditation are many;

  • It is a naturally relaxing and healing process, which focuses on calming the mind and relaxing the physical body.
  • Many cultures have preserved some practice of this ritualistic technique whether it’s in the form of prayer, reflection, or moving meditation such as Tai Chi or Yoga. These practices promote advances from the normal levels of perception that may result in a feeling of union and greater wellbeing to the world around you.

There has been much research to find out how much of an impact meditation has in our everyday lives and health matters. It’s been found to hold such a wide range of helpful and healing benefits across a broad spectrum that it is now included in medical mainstream practice as a great way to avoid general stress.

  • In some cases, it has helped people to reduce their medications, in addition to pain management.
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Increased Immunity
  • Emotional Balance
  • Increases Fertility
  • Relieves Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Anti- Inflammatory
  • Calmness

Learning meditation was a lifesaver for me and I could not imagine my life with out it now. It does not have to be difficult.

A Guided Relaxation Meditation By Judith Te Huia

Butterfly

How many of you meditate?

Have started and then stopped because it doesn’t work.

Have thought about it but find your too busy

Meditation doesn’t have to be long just learning to concentrate on you breathing helps to relax the body and mind. You don’t have to sit cross- legged on the floor. Just sitting comfortable on a chair is good. If you lie on the floor, you’re more likely to go to sleep, which defeats the purpose.

I can still hear, “but yeah I don’t have time for that”

Don’t you?

Have you ever stopped to think about what it can do for you?

Or what can happen to your body when under stress?

The Impact of Modern Living

“Our lives are full of stress: transitions, growing responsibility, our goals, our work. We hear about it in the media constantly. It’s almost become such a common topic that our eyes will pass right over it. We stop thinking about it and stop worrying about it. Or we stress about being stressed!  We read article upon article, piling on the stress while trying to relieve it.

It has been documented that most people will face a flight or fight decision at least 12 times a day. The flight or fight response is a response to acute stress that can adversely affect heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, and the general effectiveness of the immune system. Having the ability to focus on goals and clarity as to the successful out come of the goals can be achieved through inner calm and peace, a by product of meditation.

The Forest Meditation

  • Close your eyes and ask for protection. (Creating a sacred space). Take a big deep breath; hold it to the count of six, release it slowly, repeat this up to six times.
  • Breathe in through your mouth and out through your nose, allowing your body to relax.
  • Now imagine you are on a path, it is leading through a forest, it can be any sort of forest that you like, because remember, it is your forest. It is a beautiful warm autumn day, the leaves on the trees are starting to change colour, you can hear them crunch under your feet as you walk on them, you stop and take a deep breath, you are breathing in all the smells of the forest.

 

  • You become aware of the trees and how beautiful they are, how majestic they are as they tower above you, walk towards one of the trees, put your arms around the tree, feeling the texture and the bark, feel the wonderful energy that comes from all living things in nature, step back from the tree and notice all the other plants that live in your forest, you are aware of the animals, they don’t seem to be afraid of you, you feel that you are becoming a part of your forest.

 

  • Sit down with your back to a tree if you wish, close your eyes, breathe in all the smells, allow yourself to relax, feeling peaceful and calm, you open your eyes and observe all life in your forest, feeling relaxed as you do, in no rush when you are ready, standing up slowly and as you do you can see a beautiful lily pond on the other side of bridge, you make your way towards the bridge and cross over.

 

  • Standing on the bank you admire the different colours, you seem to be drawn to one in particular. Go and sit on the bank near the water lily that you are drawn to, imagine that you are breathing in the colour; it fills you with peace and contentment. When it is time to leave the lily pond you realize that you are wearing a scarf of the same colour it brings you the same feeling of peace and contentment.

 

  • Walking slowly back over the bridge and along the path, you feel different, floaty and really relaxed. When you reach the edge of your forest at point you entered, slowly come back into your awareness; back into the room, and when you are ready open your eyes.

 

Sit quietly for a few moments, to allow yourself to become present in your mind and body. When we are doing any form of relaxation or meditation we go into an altered state of awareness so sitting for a moment allows us to come back into our conscious waking state.

Do You Have a Drunken Monkey Brain? – 3 ways to sober up your monkeys

Slide1

Are there times when you brain just won’t shut off?

You have exams coming up or a new job interview or your not sure what to do about your life and all these thoughts are going around in you head and you just want to shut them up.

What do you do?

Not every one finds it easy to sit and meditate; in fact most find it difficult. You’re thinking to yourself, “I have all these things  I need to do, I can’t give myself permission to sit and meditate”. I don’t have time.

Here are 3 things you can try:

  1. Write a list of all the things that are worrying you.
  2. Now looking at them one at a time, ask yourself, Can I do something about this? If you can, then write down what it is. If you can’t I want you to say, ‘I’m handing this over to the universe” and then let it go. It is amazing what works out by its self when you’re not stressing about it.
  3. Don’t look at the issues all at once as then it can become overwhelming. Just work through them one at a time.
  4. If you find you can’t keep still long enough to meditate, get out and go for a walk or a run or to the gym where you go to de stress. This gets the positive endorphins happening in your brain.

Breathing

Focusing is a really good way to bring thoughts into some order and you can do this by focusing on your breathing. Just sit quietly for a moment concentrating on your breath. Breathing deeply from your diagram and releasing the breath slowly. Do this for a few minutes and your thoughts will be under control. You will also be feeling more relaxed. This allows your thoughts to become more centred and not be flying off in all directions. It is better not to try and stop them just acknowledge them.

Meditation

Meditation can be as easy as listen to some soothing music and doing your breathing technique. It does not need to be some complicated process.

Relaxation meditation is focused and as you are working through relaxing your body your thoughts may pop in, you may start to think about what your having for tea or if you need to get your suit dry cleaned for next week, but just let them wander for a moment. Then bring yourself back to the meditation. Doing guided meditations at the beginning is easier as you just need to follow the guidance. Or look for a group to do it with. This will also help with your wandering thoughts.

You will defiantly benefit from using the breathing techniques and learning to meditate. It also empowers you to have these skills to use in the future.
