Basics of BLH Meditations

Today’s focus is the basics of our meditations here.

Meditation places the practitioner in a vulnerable place. Your guard is down. You are open to input from divine. You are not really paying attention to the world around you.

So – how do you keep yourself safe during this time of tuning into Spirit?

You set protection up. Be it a shield, ward, guardian spirit guide. Whatever you are most comfortable with.

With each meditation, we start with the Infinity Breath. That sets into motion a protective sphere of Divine around up. Want it to be an angel? Cool. Go for it. Prefer a force field. OK. A mirror ball to deflect any unwanted energies away. That works , too.

See, the point here is to make it what you want. What best serves you. You have complete control over the imagery you use. I offer suggestions, ideas. But ultimately, it’s all about whatever t you need to feel safe so you can dive into your work.

I’ve experienced all sorts of protections. Here are more ideas for you to use in your soul explorations. And when you listen to any of my podcasts, insert your favorite.

A blue light – Blue is a color of angels. Michael and Mother Mary, in particular.  They are the heavy hitters of Divine protection.

A white light – general protective color of Spirit. Cleansing and uplifting

The orbs of love we use in the Infinity Breath

When waking down streets and I really don’t want to be noticed, I place heavy shielding, like metal shielding. I am still conscious of my surroundings, but I feel less obvious.

Your Spirit Guides walk with you all the time. As I get more meditations ready, we will definitely have several devoted to working with your guides.

Protective crystals include black stones such as black tourmaline jet, obsidian. They are also quite grounding, helps you stay connected to your body as you meditate. Labradorite, hematite, fluorite, blue kyanite, and apache tear. All of these are easily obtainable.

Most importantly, feel and KNOW you are protected and cared for. Your intention is the most solid tool you can use.

Woof

February 1, 2020

Today started out with a feeling of overwhelm. It was not the usual perky trip through the grocery store. But it has resulted in much needed conversation with three people.

Admittedly, I am feeling a sense of foreboding about America’s current political climate. I am afraid for our country, for my country. I am afraid that the results of the impeachment proceedings will send a message to darker forces that greed and hate will win.

As a human, I am scared and  exhausted. As a human, I really want spirit to assure me in a physical way that the outcome will be for the benefit of our country, the human race. As a human, I really really really hope the next election results in the removal of these people who function under the belief that greed, money, and ego is the right path. I have commented that these people who I pray lose their political positions will never find any sort of income, like speaking engagements, after their term in office. That is assuming they are voted out.

I also hope that the citizens who support and cheer on these evil people, will realize the horrific impact of their beliefs, of the actions that are happening at this time.

But as a spiritual person, I also believe that it is not my job to wish karma, to control another person’s karma. I believe that they will see the consequences, that they will experience the consequences of their actions.

I am having a crisis of faith. Plain and simple. There are things in my everyday life I can control, that I can take action about. Goals I can work toward. Things I can do. It’s a feeling of powerlessness and lack of control that is overwhelming me today. I see there are changes to be made. I see there are actions to be taken. I also see there is a longer game at play. And all of my metaphysical abilities, all of the resources I have at hand spiritually speaking, are asking me to be patient.

I hear myself asking clients to breathe. I ask my clients to cut themselves some slack. I asked them to look beyond the moment. To see themselves in the future. It is time for me to listen to my own advice.

So I spend my day breathing, breathing, and hoping.

Abundance is Your Birthright

21 May 2019

“Abundance is my natural birthright.”  – Infinite Waters (Diving Deep)

Going through writing prompts and videos. Seeing a lot about abundance. Circumstnaces around me are focused around wealth, abundance, feelings of lack. The full spectryum.

My journey is taking me on a walk through the thought process of achieving abundance. Leaving behind thoughts that my worth was less. Stepping into my power as a healer. Providing added support to my family. Setting myself up for success.

It brings a lot of issues to bear. I am not capable of making my own decision. I am easily lead by another. Cutting ties to toxic relationships. Learning that I am the only one I am responsible for. My reactions. Not anyone else’s personal assistant. I can’t make anyone read or respond or follow up.

Feeling that I am worthy and worth it. I am good at what I do. I deserve to be compensated for my services.

OH! How Exciting! Change and Growth

 *Happy sigh*
  
 Today marks the start of a new aspect of my growth as a teacher and mentor. I am leading my first class in my new office classroom today. I look back and see the journey behind me. I look forward to the path ahead.
  
 Woof. This all started when I was 8. I drew a chalk line drawing of a woman reclining under a tree. I stepped back and thought, “Wow. That is really good. Her hips are curvy. Look at that calf. Her breasts are perky yet natural.”
  
 “Wait. WHAT?! Her breasts?!?! No, no NO! I can’t do that.” And I erased it with no recognition from anyone else.
  
 I was 8. Brought up Catholic. The body was not for public consumption.
  
 So, I stuffed it all down. Some Divine input made its way in under the guise of Catholic lore. Praying one Good Friday (yes, I had a phase of being *really* Catholic). At 3pm, a cloud obscured the sun. Just like in the gospels. 
  
 Then, as a sophomore in college, I left the Church. Spent a couple of years as an atheist. (That was a lonely place for me.) Then , a chunk of time as an agnostic. And then, now.
  
 When I opened up to the possibilities Spirit presents, things really took a turn. I started reading Tarot, became attuned to Reiki, found Edgar Cayce, Jane Roberts and Seth, explored past life topics, found extra-terrestrials, crystals, and channeling.
  
 I took classes, met in consciousness-raising groups, found my spiritual niche.
  
 Lost friends. Made friends. Found myself.
  
 So today I am leading a workshop on exploring one’s own past lives. In my office classroom. With people who are interested and ready in upping their game. 
  
 I am home. 
  
 Thank you, Spirit, for your patience, LOVE, guidance. Thank you for the joy I have re-discovered in walking my true path, finding my heart, giving me the opportunity to help others heal.
  
 Blessings to you all. 

It’s that time of year

I gave up stressing out over the holiday season. Reminders (memes) about not putting yourself in deep debt over Christmas are regularly showing up now. I think it is a reflection of a changing paradigm.

I mean, really. It is hitting the fan on more than a few fronts. The old guard is under fire for being greedy and selfish. Minorities are standing up and say, “Enough!” Then, there’s the pressure of consumerism laying it on so thick about “What your {insert the person you would feel most guilty about ‘disappointing’} REALLY wants.” How do they know???

What I really want is happiness. For me. My family. For those in need. For those healing from trauma. For those who are fighting so hard for their welfare. For everyone’s welfare.

Is that so hard to grasp?

I guess it is if one believes that happiness has a price tag and can only be bought. Those folks who think everyone else is lazy/cheap/not up to date for not buying the latest and greatest. Those who do not trust themselves to be with themselves. Those who do not trust themselves or even like themselves.

Maybe it is delusional of me to think that people are happy without all the trappings of gilded toilets and cars that cost more than shelter. But I don’t think so.

I have had life experiences which taught me that people are important. People helped me through my cancer experience. People have helped my kids be the brilliant beings they are. People who are a part of my every day life. People who commit to making the world a better place.

So what does all this mean?

It means: Take care of yourselves. Take care of your heart. Your Spirit. Be kind to yourself. Get that massage. Speak kindly of and to yourself. Take a break from the news. Don’t interact to an inflammatory email. Stand up and with someone who needs support.

As Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Go Forth and Be God

June 12, 2019

Thank you, Universe, for this drive time meditation. Blessings to us all.

Start with the Infinity Breath.

Breathe in LOVE. Breathe out that which no longer serves you.

(For you, doubt. And you over there, guilt. And you, judgement.)

Do this at least three sets. Until you feel clearer.

Now, breathe in LOVE. Breathe out Calm.

Breathe in LOVE. Breathe out Calm.

Breathe in Love. Breathe out Calm.

Now Breathe in LOVE. Breathe out God/Divine/Source.

Continue this cycle.

Feel the GOD in you. Feel how God spreads out and encompasses your surroundings.

Feel the how you are Divine. How Divine is you.

You are GOD and GOD is YOU.

You are GOD and GOD is YOU.

You are GOD and GOD is YOU.

This is freedom from anyone else’s power over you.

This is GOD-ness.

Go forth and be GOD.

Gimme Patience. Right Now!

2019 Nov 21

Gimme Patience

“Lord, give me patience. Give me patience. Gimme patience!”

A friend was recounting her life to me in the produce section of TJ’s. “All this stuff is happening. Husband is going through this. Son is dealing with this. Daughter is not handling this. I stand there and say, Lord, give me patience.”

It took me until the cheese and meat section to see what she could change. “You are asking for patience. And you are finding yourself in situations requiring patience. What if you changed that thinking?”

Light bulb central.

Now, I don’t know much about her life since that day. Looking at her FB presence, I can see her life has changed. I hope new thinking had a hand in the  her life shift.

I am facing some opportunities for changing my thinking.  Changing my focus about  my business. Assuring my language is impeccable. Seeing the possibilities and different approaches. Embracing the long game on the path to change.

The long game. What?

A term from American football, “long game”  means to have a long-term plan. A larger, wider perspective.

In our daily lives, it means to have a goal, a plan you can follow, a map. If you need to refer to the map, do so. Refer to your plan as often as needed. You take steps – I will not call them baby steps. You need to take steps to make progress.

It will not give you immediate results, though. Immediate gratification is not usually possible for profound growth. It takes steps. Some steps are small. Some are longer. Sometimes that step is to step back and review, assess and re-assess where you have been and where you are. Some steps result in greater progress.

As long as you take action, you are making progress.

Alignment may be such that others are taking steps on your path, too. Those in body and those in Spirit are working with you to achieve your goal of growth. The support you have is real and abundant. Be grateful for it. Send Love out as often as you can.

I send you Love and Abundance blessings.

What Does Self Care Look Like? (And a New Guide)

2019 November 5

What does Self Care Look Like?

My, my, my, my, my. There are so many articles floating around, being shared and referenced about the need to care for oneself. “Indulge” comes to mind. Darling, to take care of oneself is not an indulgence. It is a necessity.

We remind you that on these new-fangled aeroplanes, one is instructed to place the oxygen mask over one’s own face before helping another. Yes! You need air to keep yourself alive to help another in need. Indulgence, indeed. *That* is a necessity.

The same holds true in your everyday life. You take care of yourself.

What does that look like?

It means you take a few moments to sit quietly, contemplating your day. Set the intention for your day, if you will. A quiet cup of coffee or tea. (Please don’t overindulge. That causes more harm than help.)

Keep tabs on how your body feels. Are you tired? Then put down that phone and go to bed. That digital restaurant will be fine. You, however, will not be.

Eat with your health in mind. Eat mindfully. Sure the doughnut is quick energy. Of course, that protein bar has nutrients. But to indulge in a slow meal feeds your body and your soul, ah, that is self care. A meal served by someone else or concocted by yourself can be a source of joy, bliss, and pride.

Saying “no” without guilt. Heavens, how liberating that is. Truly discern if your schedule can accommodate another late evening. Do you really feel up to that book club meeting? Schedule time for yourself. Yes! Put it on your agenda. Mark your calendar.

And then, there are the people you indulge.

Yes, Aunt Martha has her life experience to share – with anyone who makes eye contact. But listen to your heart, dear. Do you see any loving benefit to her criticisms? About  your life choices, Uncle Fred’s clothing choices, and Cousin Diane’s lip color, the soup?.

You call them toxic people. They have become the focus of the biggest self-care changes you can make. How do you remove yourself from a toxic person? Pick a way. “Ghostng,” telling them off, writing a letter. Do what you need to do to separate yourself from a person who sucks the joy out of your life. Moving to another state is valid, too.

But darlings, understand that your sanity, health, and humanity are of utmost importance. Without those, you are lost. Join the kindness race.

Edna over and out.

Susy’s note: Edna is a new to me guide. She is stylish, British, a 1920’s icon. She is a soul who lived on the Earth plane. She despises my ankle socks, would rather sip champagne, and is a hoot to talk to. She is a soul poet and is happy to help you become one.)

Bringing My Energy Back In

Here, Susy! Here, Susy!

I have received messages from a number of practitioners this last couple of weeks to reclaim myself. Some redefining. Certainly pulling my energy back to myself.

What has been going on is like the “nosy neighbor.” No, like emotionally investing on someone else’s business and therefore not having or taking the time to mind my own. The boundaries, while well-intentioned, were blurry.

Then, Mary the Tarotist came in to explain the situation. That things will happen will take longer to happen. The foundation and past cards caught my attention. They brought up that past behavior patterns, past thought patterns were present which were holding me up. I followed up with her, asking that if I resolved and broke those past experiences’ impact, I could move forward. Yes. Cool.

Then, Kevin, another Tarotist, interpreted a one card pull, confirming that I needed to pull and redirect my energies to focus on my purpose of a healer. I relayed that information to others as they inquired about my newest office situation. As I repeated the info, the more ingrained it became.

Come today, one of my office days, I have to put this new paradigm into practice. I have supportive beings around me, reminding me that if I do not focus on my desired result, I will not achieve me desired result.

Well, oaky, then. My words come back to me. Time to get a move on.

Blessings to you all. May your focus be on those things you desire to have in your life.

Wednesday Win – A Day Early

My Wednesday Win started with my wakefulness last night. This new business venture I have embarked on has prompted me to look at my feelings of deserving-ness.

Dunno really what its origin is, but more than a few times in my life have reinforced it. 

Last night, I talked to my 10-years-in-the-future me. I saw me as confident, successful, and joyful. I asked me what did I do, what happened to get me there?

I said I cut cords to those who lived in a place of lack and perceived unworthiness. Relationships and energetic. I surrounded – surround – myself with those souls who see me for the effective, kind, loving healer that I am.

I said the sooner I do that the sooner I get to my 10-years-in-the-future self. 

I settled in for some early morning work: cutting cords from those are not supporting my journey; envisioning my office space as comfortable, safe, simple; feeling the truth of my abilities to help other.

Feeling way more confident.
