Meditation: Tips on How to Breathe

Do you meditate or have you tried meditation and found it challenging?  Did you know meditation need not be complicated or even lengthy?  Would you believe it is scientifically proven that regular meditation has the ability to positively improve the quality of life for individuals who practice it?  There are also studies that show large groups of people meditating can diminish world aggression.

Simplistically stated, meditation is the practice of quieting the mind, focusing and being in the present moment.  We are all familiar with the most common benefits, such as the ability to be relaxed, calm and focused.  Did you know even a few minutes of meditation has many other benefits?  Meditation helps develop positive emotions and increases your chi (life force energy).  Where can you use these benefits?  Many of us are in the work force and this may be the ideal place to use meditation.  Taking a few minutes alone or developing focus on mundane tasks may change your outlook on your job in general or with projects you work on.  You may be surprised to find you are more able to tackle the challenging parts of your job with greater success when regularly practicing these short periods of meditation. Did you know that Tai Chi is a meditation in motion?

·        Breathing – Take slow deep breathes that extend your belly.  This type of breathing can lower your blood pressure and increases oxygen flow to the brain which becomes more active and alert. Also helps in releasing toxins from the body.
·        Focus on a point such as an Angel coin or gemstone.  If work cannot stop, focus intently on each action you take.  Consider each step in a work process.  For instance, say to yourself, “I am putting paper into the copier.  I am putting the document into the slot.  I am making 20 copies.”

·        Check with your company to see if they have a Meditation at Work Program.
·        Join a Tai Chi or Yoga class where you will learn further meditation techniques and styles.
·        Practice meditation regularly.

Freedom: Detach from the Past

Posted 05/06/13 by Angel Marie and filed under:

Are your inner feelings so strong that you feel you must shift?  Who do you truly want to be?  Are all your relationships changing?

Most of our lives we have been told how to live and what to believe.  I feel and see energy shifting and change taking place.  Many people are leaving their old beliefs and habits by the wayside.   Many are letting go of friendships, marriages or materialistic things.  Being the Year of the Snake, I think of this as the snake shedding its skin.

The skin that we shed gives us a feeling of freedom in experiencing life without labels or judgments – the negative energy we put on ourselves.  When the snake sheds its skin it is the same snake underneath.  When we shed old beliefs and other things that no longer serve us we feel a sense of freedom yet we are the same person.

Are you ready to detach from the past?  If you are ready to detach then expand your greater vision of YOU, there are no limits.  See all the possibilities and outcomes and erase all doubts.  YOU are more than you know – you are already everything you desire.

You are worthy.  You are capable.  You are the creator! You are loved!

Freedom

Communication: One Big Tip!

Do you feel something is missing when you are talking with someone? Have you ever been in a conversation and you just knew that the other person was not getting what you were saying?  In my communication in coaching sessions as well as personal relationships I see the value of understanding that everyone is filtering information by way of their own perceptions or reality. Recently I had an experience that really helped me to step back and see my communication in a different way. It helped me sharpen my communication skills and brought understanding to how others “hear” what I say.

By understanding we are all different in the way we perceive the world I have greater ability to communicate in a way that gets the message across. We all have “filters” that sway our perception – new or old beliefs, life experiences and philosophies.

I see I cannot always think that everyone understands what I say. Because others hear me through the filters of their own life experiences and learning I am now more aware of what I say and how I say it. Understanding that everyone has different filters and communicating with this in mind gives me the opportunity to use communication skills in the best way for each experience.

Every interaction with others is an opportunity to learn about our true self!

Space Clearing: Blessing Your Home

Have you ever had a House Blessing or Clearing?  Do you feel the energy in your home sometimes feels different when someone visits or a family member is unhappy or upset?  Shifting or clearing the energy in your home will change how it feels to you.

Opening up your house and letting the air go through helps move the energy and you probably noticed this before.  It is easy to pick up energy “vibrations” that do not belong to you.  A lot of my energy sessions are done from my home.  After a client session ends or a class is over I clear the energy.  If you work in a stressful work environment full of fearful or angry people you may attract their negative energy.  You may feel spacey, tired or even have mood changes when this happens.

So, clearing your energy and clearing your space is important.  Here are three simple ways to clear energy:

  • Singing or clapping your hands shifts stale energy and increases higher frequencies.
  • Burn sage, ring bells or beat drums to shift the energy vibration.
  • Use a spray bottle with essential oils, such as Lavender to spritz and clear stale vibrations.

Is it time to clear your space?  Would you like to have positive energy in and around you?  I would love to provide a remote blessing for your space that includes:

  • Energy Reiki with drums
  • Smudging ritual
  • Clearing ritual with rattle to release negative and stagnant energy
  • Angel protection prayer with bells
  • Space shielding with Archangel Michael and a crystal wand
  • A beautiful front door blessing

Lightworker: Are you One?

I have noticed on my new website that most of the “hits” are on the tab What is a Lightworker?  So do you know what a Lightworker is?  I do not promote labeling however, Lightworker is a buzz word which is becoming mainstream. Just like Reiki and Tai Chi.

I wanted to give definition and attributes of Lightworkers.  Lightworkers follow a path of love and feel compelled to improve life around them by elevating others to a higher level of consciousness, physically and/or spiritually.  They offer help to others and take actions which make the world a better place.  Lightworkers come from all walks of life without consideration to religious background or other diversities.  Signs of being a Lightworker may include the following:

  • Seeking understanding of the questions: “Why am I here?” or “What is my purpose?”
  • Experiencing a depth of feelings of love and compassion to the extent that you often find yourself helping others.
  • A greater desire to be a part of solving global challenges such as environment or social issues.
  • A desire for being a part of the natural world; starting to garden, visiting nature more often or caring for the animal world; a concern for the health of Mother Earth.
  • Using “gut feelings” or intuition as part of decision making.

Fear: Releasing the Rat

In my coaching sessions I am asked frequently about releasing fears.  Ten years ago when I was I was getting certified in Spiritual Counseling I was asked, “What is one of your fears?”  For me, it has always been rats.  The challenge was to take action to address it and overcome the fear.  I looked at pictures of rats but I could still feel the fear.  Several weeks later I decided to go to a pet store.

At first I sat with the rat while it was still caged.  It gave me the creeps!  I wanted to get through my feelings so I connected to it by looking at it and talking to it.  Then I had them take the rat out of the cage.  I literally jumped back but then I reached out and touched it.  I was still uncomfortable.  After a while though, I was able to hold the rat.  I felt such a sense of accomplishment.  It took physical energy to take that step.  What it gave back was a sense of freedom and power.  I did not realize how that fear was holding me back in other areas of my life.  Taking that action left me with an inner knowing that I was fully empowered over all the areas of my life.

You know what you are fearful of – it is time to empower yourself by releasing it!  If you want help, give me a call for a Shine On! Coaching Session.

Sex: Releasing the Story

This past weekend I had the opportunity to be on the Radio show “No Limits” with Christina Wagner.  The topic was sex.  I really believe that society has created a taboo about the discussion of sex.  This is more evident in our country than in other countries.  One of the questions was, “When was the first time your parents talked to you about sex?”

My experience is that when my mama started to show me pictures I told her I had already done some of those.  Being a very young child I did not think it was a big deal.  In my years of coaching hundreds of women, many have had sexual abuse.  The traumas and then the releasing and accepting of those experiences are always a challenge.

Saying this on the radio I felt more like my authentic self knowing that I could help other people.  There is no shame or fault and it is just a story now.  I believe all our experiences, whether positive or negative, give us the ability to help others.  Not only is there acceptance of self there is no longer the need to judge others in any situation.

If one of the stories in your life is in need of releasing, I am here for you with techniques and tips to help you get through it.  Also, if you would like to listen to the “No Limits” radio program, here you go.. Shine On Coaching Program

Love: You Have Permission

Have you noticed the recent shifting of energy?  Have you been feeling things just are not right?  The frequency of energy around us seems to be increasing and intensifying.  Clients and students speak of experiences related to personal and relationship changes along with connecting to Self at a deeper level.  There is a desire to be valued and appreciated for who we are.

I can go to any grocery store however, I keep returning to the same locations.  I keep going back because the store employees and management make me feel valued.  They are genuinely friendly and helpful.

Perhaps it is because Valentine’s Day is already here that the intensity of energy is all about relationships.  We all want to be loved, valued and appreciated and Valentine’s Day brings all these feelings to the surface.

More people seem to be giving themselves permission to come first.  Many are experiencing such strong feelings that they are willing to change jobs, leave relationships and speak up for what they want.  Here are three suggestions on how to put your self first.

  • Treat your body with a long luxurious bath.  Use essential oils, light candles and wear a tiara if you have one!
  • When you are out shopping buy yourself a rose and place it in an area of your home you visit often.  Really look at it, touch it and smell it knowing you are deserving of such beauty.
  • Listen to your favorite music and dance like no one is watching!

You have permission to put yourself first!  Do it now!

Motivation~Change~Vision

During the recent holiday season, many of us had time off work or adjusted work schedules so we could celebrate, see family, relax and have fun.  My best friend who is 13 years old told me her time off school was all about staying up late, watching movies, family and getting completely out of her routine.  I too seemed to drop my regular schedule of activities.  I stopped working out in the morning, stayed up later, went out to eat more often and ate things I typically do not eat.  Everything was off schedule and I had a lot of fun.

Now the holidays are over and most of us have returned to our routines of work, hectic schedules and life as it was before the holidays.  Yet those who see me for Coaching sessions, Readings and Reiki, as well as several Reiki students have been asking the same question, “Now what do I do?”  Some have made resolutions or stated the desire to experience change in their personal lives.  I have plans for change in my own life so as I considered this question I asked, “What is the next step?”

When I look at my Coaching Sessions what am I really doing? I work together with others to bring accountability to their goals.  I inspire and help light the fires of motivation.  I make suggestions such as writing down exactly what is wanted, focusing and the action steps necessary.  I offer suggestions and ideas which lead to connecting to others who might play a role in helping.  For me personally, I take these same actions.  I see what I want to create and I know there is someone special to help when the help is needed.

This year is about self realization – becoming the person you want to be.  It is wise to recognize that we do not have do this alone.  There are others to help us along the way.  Personally, I refuse stay with the same routines I was in.  There is someone out there that is going to help me with my visions of doing webinars and Blog Radio.  I am going to do something different this year!

Resolutions: Commitments to Change

New Years resolutions are commitments people make to themselves to improve or change their lives in the coming year. It can be for fun or in earnest as these desires are discussed and often written down. Many times resolutions are forgotten during the first few months after the New Year is celebrated. Using the Law of Attraction you may take yours resolutions to a higher level.

The Law of Attraction explains that our thoughts become our reality. Whether the signal is positive or negative we will attract likewise. The Universe is fully available to us and our desires when we are open to receive. There are various ways to practice manifesting such as meditation, affirmations or speaking to your Higher Self or Source.

Some tips for turning resolutions into successful manifestations are:

  • State your intention – your spoken words are powerful. Be positive!
  • Be specific – State exactly what you desire. Visualize what you want to create.
  • Practice gratitude – Live is gratitude for what you presently have as well as for what is to come.
  • Release your desires and intentions to the Universe. Allow the energies of the Universe to work mysteries and bring your intentions to fruition.
  • Have faith – Know you have been heard. Expect your desires will be achieved with Divine timing and for your best good.
  • Be patient – Relax! Enjoy your life knowing you have taken steps to successfully create your physical and spiritual desires.

This upcoming year is going to be exciting! We will all have opportunities for growth, learning and creating. In the material world where we exist together, what do you wish to create? In the connection of Spirit to your physical body, what will you manifest for your spiritual longings?
