40 Days to Fearlessness, Challenge #1: Turn Your Imagination Toward the Light

Journey Club

 

One thing I notice in my life is that I try to hide away from my fears. Repression them and suppression them is not a good thing.
I have to say many of biggest fears have happened and have happened more than once.

Some would make many people run in the cave and not come out. I have claimed Bankruptcy, because I had a business fail. When I had my scrapbooking store I didn’t trust myself and handed the power to someone else. In return that person betrayed me. So I thought but in fact I betrayed myself by not trusting myself and my own inner light.

I have been evicted from 3 different homes. Each time truly devastating. But I know one I wanted to happen.

Yet when it happens again, you have to sit a wonder why. Yes you didn’t pay the rent. But what I find there is something I need to do for me in all the craziness. To find me. Finding me in each situation was taking me back to a place that scared me more than anything.

That fear was surrendering to God. Surrendering to a power that I believed could take over my life and I would no longer have control over it. Maybe someone would laugh and taught me because of it. The fear was paralyzing. This idea of God. What God is and what I think he could do?

I always had this great intuition and knowingness. The Angels seem easy and beautiful and loving to me. Calling in the Goddess energy was a true delight. But God…………… What was so different in this?

When I sat and asked why am I afraid? Because I felt that I would be judged. Be judged for not being able to keep it together. Being judged because I failed. Or my belief of failure is. That God would wag his finger in my face like my dad had done and told me you can do better……. Wow what a moment that was. A moment that I got clarity of God. That I put him with my father. A father of the earthly realm who could only be earthly.

This new journey I am taking for 40 days of Fearlessness is opening me up. And bringing me back to the road home. I can’t say where that is right now. But I know I have to include this higher power called God.. I receive peace.

When I turned away even through those other beloved beings are there this one is extra special.

I feel I am getting help carry my crosses or burdens. I moving away from the darkness and into the light. He is giving me strength and joy and he is showing me how to trust in him in the face of our many trials.

Right now Steve my hubby has not been working and my business has slowed down. We are heading down a road of some big hills to climb but it feels so different this.

I have began to train my imagination to turn away from darkness and toward the light. I am making a concerted effort to make sure that when I imagine my fears playing out, I include God in those pictures. Because these things you and I and everyone fear? I won’t lie to you, some of them very well may come to pass. But if and when they do, God will be there, too, giving us all the grace and peace and strength we will need to scale the mountain that stands before us.

If you are still reading this blog I know you will continue to follow me. I know many don’t like to hear the word God but you will be hearing it a little more from me. That is where I am on the journey.

The work I do is because of the Father and The Mother, Angels, Fairies and more. all of love and light.

CHALLENGE #1

Take a moment to imagine what it would feel like if the thing you’re afraid of actually came to pass. Let yourself feel that fear. But then invite God into the picture. In what ways might he be present? What graces might he give you to help you endure the situation? And what blessings might be waiting for you on the other side of your fear? Turn your imagination toward the light, watch as the darkness begins to dissipate, and be at peace, sweet friends.

40 Days to Fearlessness

UNIVERSE-MANIFESTING

 

 

I was chatting with a friend the other day about our fears, both big and small, when she mentioned something interesting. She said that she’d noticed that it’s not the giant, scary fears that have the most serious repercussions in her life on a day-to-day basis but rather, it’s the small pebble in your shoe-variety fears that she struggles with most.

We all have our Loch Ness Monster-esque fears that occasionally rise to the surface, pull us under, and steal our breath away. We let our imaginations run wild as we panic about death and heartbreak and financial ruin, blindly accepting that all these worse case scenarios we indulge are destined to come true. We believe the lies.

Most of the time, though, it’s the less terrifying sorts of fears that hop on our shoulder and ride around with us all day. We worry about not getting enough sleep and being exhausted all the next day as we try to wrestle our little ones into bed and we wonder if we’re steering our older children down the right path. We fret about that awkward phone call we have to make as we do our grocery shopping. We agonize over that text we received from our spouse that seems just a little colder than usual. Is he upset about something? Did something happen at work? Is it me? And then we lay in bed at night, tossing and turning, worried about…well, pretty much everything.

I think sometimes we underestimate what a negative effect these pernicious little pebble fears have on our lives. We grow used to having them around and after a while it doesn’t even occur to us that their might be another way. We forget that it take energy to fret, energy that could be used to kiss round rosy cheeks, dream big dreams with our spouses, plant gardens, write books, and dance in our kitchens.

For many years, these sorts of fears ate away at me and cast a sort of muted quality upon my life as I took to staring blankly at walls, lost in my own anxious thoughts. As my friend was talking, though, it suddenly hit me that somewhere along the way, these anxieties lost their grip on me. I can honestly say that I am not often bothered by them anymore.

Which is not to say, of course, that I am never anxious or fearful, but simply that fear is no longer my constant companion. I still worry about things from time to time but I now know how to keep those fears from taking over my life.

As we enter this season of Lent ( which the time before Easter ), I want to share with you some of the lessons I’ve learned and steps I’ve taken to kick these pebble fears out of my way and off the path God, Divine, Higher Self, has laid before me. And I want to challenge you to do the same. Because, honestly, if I can overcome my fears, anyone can. I mean that very sincerely.

Identify one small fear that has been eating away at you. (As a priest once told me, when it comes to the spiritual life, it is hugely important to take baby steps.) Then, bring that fear out into the light by naming it and resolving to conquer it.

Fear wants us to feel ashamed and isolated. He whispers to us that no one is as weak or worthless as we are. Fear is a liar. The truth is that we all stumble and fall and we are all lifted up over and over again by our Divine. By sharing our struggles with one another, we will be reminded that we’re not alone.

Commit to helping someone or Praying for someone you know. Just because.

Share this challenge with anyone you think might benefit from joining us because the more people we can convince to join us, the more powerful our witness will be.

If you’d like to share your experience, get inspiration, request prayers, or ask for tips. Facebook Me Mary June Tracy

Do a happy dance because life on the other side of fear is a beautiful thing, indeed.

HOW TO MAKE THE UNSEEN WORLD YOUR OBSESSION

11869474_m

Spirituality

The etheric realm is where all of your juicy vibrational action happens first. Your intentions, feelings, desires and energy all hang out in this Divine holding space for you to align with them and then ALLOW life to welcome them into your world. So scrumptious.

You’re creating this magic on a moment-by-moment basis.

Your current reality (as in, right now) is a mere echo of the energy that has played out on the non-physical plane first. So it’s vital we learn how to nurture our relationship with the unseen world and make sure that the right energy is being sent there in order for it to be bounced back to us with razor-sharp accuracy.

Ask yourself the following 3 “power questions” to delve into making sure that the unseen world will release your goodies from the vibrational warehouse of awesomeness.

How can I raise my vibration?

A great way to manifest at a lightening fast pace is to ask yourself how you can raise your vibration. The higher your vibration, the more in alignment with your desires you are. Thus, you are releasing the energetic blocks that sometimes constrict the flow and stop the Law of Attraction from working her magic.

Creative ways that people raise their vibration is through meditation, doing things they love or perhaps surrounding themselves in inspiration that sparks a heart-based reaction in their souls.

Dancing, cooking, love-making, shopping, being in nature – whatever floats your boat, just do it.

#SoulNote: Check in on your energy and see how you can serve your soul by focussing on things to appreciate. This is a high-vibe activity that will shift energy like wildfire.

How can I connect to the Universe?

The concept that we are separate from others and the Universe (or God) is a big fat whopping illusion. It’s a lie to keep us small.

We are all part of the same exquisite fabric of Oneness, and we are all in this together.

When you ask yourself how you can connect to the Universe, you need to ask how you can remind yourself of the innate connection you have always had. Whether it’s through prayer, meditation, getting out into nature – it’s important that you remember that you are part of a much bigger picture and that the unseen world is more your home than the bricks and mortar that currently house you in this physical realm.

Simple meditation you can do is: Hands over your heart, right over left. Bring what you feel is your disconnection, your worry, your stress, frustration…… Then think of 3 things you are grateful for. Sit with those gratitudes. Now ask what can I do? Show me the way? In that moment you and your Universe, God are one. You are at peace and when you are at peace, joy, love you can not be disconnected

SoulNote: Your role is to remember your connection to the Universe and that your soul is infinite LOVE.

How can I imprint my sub-conscious mind?

Rituals are huge way of impacting the sub-conscious mind. Why because they are repetitive. We can do this simply or in detail. In ritual I embrace the 3 in 1, body, mind and soul. Using different elements around me, crystals, incense or essential oil diffusers, herbs, plants, or flowers. And the biggest of rituals or add in working with the subconscious is helping those who want the same thing you are wanting. You may say you can’t do this because you don’t feel you have what it takes. But you will find others who may have less than you do, less knowledge, understanding, ability in someway. When you begin to help others you begin to help your self this is a huge little ritual because in that magic you are igniting love which is within you to give. As you bring in the elements you bring in the divine to guide you on this quest.
POW The magic, awesomeness begins, because you find that you radiate even more, which gives others to radiate it more. You then find what the sub-conscious mind had written before becomes unwritten and renewed.

Meditation for Abundance with Angel Gadiel

Blessings
Mama G

Abundance Ritual with Angel Gadiel

Believe it or not, money is one of the easiest things to create. I didn’t believe it for a long time. And, of course, my reality showed that belief. Once I figured out how to create money, though, I knew that it was true. Money was a snap.

This technique is designed to help you shift your resonance around money. You can do it as often as every day. And it is also designed to grow with you, and your receptivity to being abundance increases.

The Ingredients:

  • 3 white candles – any size
  • A metal or glass bowl
  • Matches or lighter
  • Two strips of paper with this written on them:
    o    Money is hard to come by— it doesn’t grow on trees.
    o    Money is easy to create—it’s as if it grows on trees.

The Process:

1.    Find some time to be alone. Play some soft music and assemble the ingredients in front of you on a table.

2.    Take a deep breath, and on your exhale let go of the day’s thoughts, feelings and concerns.

3.    Take another deep breath, and on your exhale let go of all preconceived notions of the outcome of this ritual.

4.    Take another deep breath and on your exhale remind yourself of who you are—a divine spark of consciousness from God, Goddess and everything that is.

5.    Light the first candle, and say, aloud or in your mind: “Higher Self, I invite you to join me in this ritual, to add your love, healing and energy and to add your dreams for my abundance.”

6.    Light the second candle, and say, aloud or in your mind: “My Soul, I invite you to join me in this ritual, to add your love, healing and energy and to add your dreams for my abundance.”

7.    Light the third candle, and say, aloud or in your mind: “Angel Gadiel, I invite you to join me in this ritual, to add your love, healing and energy and to help me to release and heal any negativity that may be in the way of receiving prosperity and abundance.”

8.    Close your eyes and feel the presence of your Soul, your Higher Self and the angel, Gadiel. Feel their love, their support, and their belief in you and your ability to create abundance. Spend a few minutes basking in this love. Allow any insights as to beliefs to change, actions to take, or inspiration as to your next steps, to gently filter into your consciousness.

9.    Open your eyes and hold the slip of paper that says, “Money is hard to come by— it doesn’t grow on trees.” Think about the effect this belief and others like it has had on your reality. Think about the struggle, the scarcity, the sacrifice this belief has caused.

10.    Now forgive yourself for it all. All the lack, all the fear, all the doing without, all the pain, all the worry. You did the best you could at the time. Say it, aloud or in your mind: “I forgive myself for believing I was less than powerful and abundant.”

11.    Hold the paper over the bowl and burn it, allowing all of the negativity, constriction and old patterns to be released.

12.    Pick up the slip of paper that says, “Money is easy to create—it’s as if it grows on trees.” And read it aloud or in your mind.

13.    Imagine the change in your world, if you allowed this new belief to take hold in your subconscious mind. Think about how your life would be different if you never, ever had to worry about money for as long as you live.

14.    Close your eyes, and imagine yourself in a beautiful, serene place in nature, sitting under a huge deciduous tree. Allow the tree’s leaves to sway in the wind. Feel the gentle breeze upon your face. You realize this is your private place. Maybe it’s your yard, or a secret tree no one knows about but you.

Then you decide to lie down underneath this beautiful tree. It’s a warm summer day and the grass is soft and cool beneath your body. It feels wonderful to lie beneath this magnificent tree.

You don’t know how or when, but you drift off to sleep. And when you awaken you look up into the tree. And what you see astonishes you.

A dollar bill is falling from the tree!

You have no idea where exactly it is falling from, but it falls, slowly drifting down before your very eyes, and lands at your feet.

You pick up the dollar. You turn it over and inspect it. You wonder if you are dreaming, and you realize you are not. And you thank your unseen friends for assisting you in bringing this abundance to you in this most fun and unexpected way.

And then it hits you. If you can create ONE dollar bill falling out of a tree, you can create a HUNDRED dollar bills falling out of a tree. And sure enough, just as you finish that thought, another bill floats down as if from heaven.

And another and another and soon you are in a gentle rain of abundance. Stay here for a while. Play in the money. Gather it. Think about what you will do with it.

And when you are ready, open your eyes.

15.    Watch for signs in your world that you abundance is shifting. When you see a sign of $1 or more, then next time you do this ritual, $5 bills will fall. And then look for signs of a bigger nature, and the next time, $10 bills, then $20 and then $100.

16.    As always, change any beliefs that crop up as a result of thinking about and focusing on money.

And as always, have FUN my friends!

Reiki Q & A

Reiki Classes With Mama Guru

Q. Where does Reiki energy come from?reiki

A. Reiki energy is a subtle energy. It is different than electricity or chemical energy or other kinds of physical energy. Reiki energy comes from the Higher Power, which exists on a higher dimension than the physical world we are familiar with. When viewed clairvoyantly, Reiki energy appears to come down from above and to enter the top of the practitioners head after which if flows through the body and out the hands. It appears to flow this way because of our perspective. However, the true source of Reiki energy is within ourselves. This does not mean that we use our personal energy when we do Reiki, but that the energy is coming from a transcendental part of ourselves that is connected to an infinite supply of healing energy.

Q. Is Reiki a Religion?

A. Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Practitioners are not asked to change any religious or spiritual beliefs they may have. They are free to continue believing anything they choose and are encouraged to make their own decisions concerning thenature of their religious practices.

Q. How is a Reiki treatment given?

A. In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client.The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand positions. These include positions aroundthe head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.

Q. What does a Reiki treatment feel like?

A. What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.

Q. What can be treated with Reiki?

A. Reiki has had a positive affect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, bee stings, colds, flu, tension and anxiety as well as serious illness like heart disease, cancer, leukemia, etc. The side effects of regular medical treatments have also been reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post operative pain and depression as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital. Reiki always helps and in some cases people have experienced complete healings which have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. However, while some have experienced miracles, they cannot be guaranteed. Stress reduction with some improvement in ones physical and psychological condition are what most experience.

Q. Does one have to stop seeing a regular doctor or psychologist in order to receive a Reiki treatment?

A. No. Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If one has a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that one see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki energy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including drugs, surgery, psychological care or any other method of alternative care and will improve the results.

Q. Who can learn to do Reiki?

A. Reiki is a very simple technique to learn and is not dependent on one having any prior experience with healing, meditation or any other kind of training. It has been successfully learned by over one million people from all walks of life, both young an old. The reason it is so easy to learn that it is not taught in the usual way something is taught. The ability to do Reiki is simply transferred from the teacher to the student through a process called an attunement that takes place during a Reiki class. As soon as one receives an attunement, they have theability to do Reiki and after that whenever one places their hands on themselves or on another person with the intention of doing Reiki, the healing energy will automatically begin flowing.

Q. How long does it take to learn Reiki?

A. A beginning Reiki class is taught on a weekend. The class can be one or two days long. I recommend that the minimum time necessary be at least six to seven hours. Along with the attunement, it is necessary that the student be shown how to give treatments and also to practice giving treatments in class.

Q. What is a Reiki attunement?

A. A Reiki attunement is the process by which a person receives the ability to give Reiki treatments. The attunement is administered by the Reiki Master during the Reiki class. During the attunement, the Reiki Master will touch the students head, shoulders, and hands and use one or more special breathing techniques. The attunement energies will flow throughthe Reiki Master and into the student. These special energies are guided by the Higher Power and make adjustments in the students energy pathways and connect the student to the source of Reiki. Because the energetic aspect of the attunement is guided by the Higher Power, it adjusts itself to be exactly right for each student. During the attunement, some students feel warmth in the hands, others may see colors or have visions of spiritual beings. However, it is not necessary to have an inner experience for the attunement to have worked. Most simply feel more relaxed.

Q. Can I treat myself?

A. Yes, once you have received the attunement, you can treat yourself as well as others. This is one of the unique features of Reiki.

Q. I have heard that Reiki can be sent to others at a distance. How does this work?

A. Yes, in Reiki II, you are given three Reiki symbols. These symbols are empowered by theReiki II attunement. One of these symbols is for distant healing. By using a picture of the person you would like to send Reiki to or by writing the person’s name on a piece of paper or simply by thinking of the person and also activating the distant symbol, you can send Reiki to them no matter where they are. They could be hundreds of miles away, but it makes no difference. The Reiki energy will go to them and treat them. You can also send Reiki to crisis situations or world leaders and the Reiki energy will help them too.

Q. How many levels are there to the Reiki training?

A. In the Usui/Tibetan system of Reiki taught by the Center, there are four levels. These include one, two, Advanced and Master.

Q. What does it feel like to give a treatment?

A. When giving a Reiki treatment, the Reiki energy flows through the practitioner before leaving the hands and flowing into the client. Because of this, the practitioner receives a treatment also. As the Reiki energy flows through the practitioner, she/he will feel more relaxed and uplifted. Spiritual experiences sometimes take place. The practitioner sometimes receives insights about what the client needs to know to heal more deeply.

Q. How do I find a Reiki teacher that is right for me?

A. Reiki teachers or Masters advertise in many magazines and also post notices at health food stores, new age bookstores and other places. Once you find a Reiki teacher or practitioner you are interested in receiving training or a treatment from, it is a good idea to ask them some important questions. Here are a few that will give you additional information to make a choice.

• How long have you been working with Reiki? What training have you had? How often do you teach? How do you personally use Reiki? What is your lineage?

• What qualifications are required to take Reiki Training?

• What do you cover in your classes? How many hours of class time is included? How much time is instructional, and how much is hands on practice?

• What are the specific things I will be able to do after taking the training?

• What are your fees, and will I get a certificate and a manual?

• Can I take notes and tape record the class?

• How many symbols will I learn?

• Is there a Reiki support group in my area or can you help me establish one?

• Will you openly support me in being a successful Reiki practitioner or Master?

• Do you have a positive respectful attitude toward other Reiki practitioners and Masters regardless of lineage or affiliation?

Be aware of how you feel about their answers and if they are responding in a loving manner that is supportive and empowering. Listen to your heart and you will be guided to the right teacher or practitioner.

Q. Can children learn Reiki?

A. Yes, Reiki can be taught to anyone. I recommend that a child be old enough to understand what Reiki is and that the child request to receive Reiki.

Q. Is it safe for pregnant woman?

A. Since Reiki is guided by the Higher Power, the Reiki energy will know the condition of theclient or student and adjust appropriately. Reiki can only do good. Many pregnant women have received treatments with great benefit to them and their unborn child. It has also been used during child birth. Pregnant women have also taken the Reiki training and received the Reiki attunement with beneficial results.

Q. What about babies?

A. Babies love Reiki. It is very healthy for them. Do not worry about it being too strong. Reiki automatically adjusts to what the baby needs.

Q. Can I treat animals or plants?

A. Animals love Reiki too. They seem to have a natural understanding of what Reiki is and its benefits. Once a pet has received a Reiki treatment, they will often let you know that they want more. Plants also respond well to Reiki.

Q. Are there any side effects from a Reiki treatment?

A. Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki treatment. However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of thehealing process so this is a good sign.

Q. Can it be used to help groups of people or even global crises?

A. Yes, this is one of the wonderful benefits of Reiki and is why it is such a wonderful technique for the new millennium. It allows individuals and groups to do something positive about the challenging situations we see on the news involving so many people all over theplanet. Reiki can be used to reduce suffering and help people any where in the world.

Q. How much does a treatment usually cost?

A. A Reiki treatment usually will cost between $25.00 and $100.00 depending on the area ofthe country. However, some practitioners offer treatments free of charge or for a donation.

Q. Can a person make a living from Reiki?

A. Yes, if you put your heart into it, you can develop a Reiki practice combined with teaching classes that can bring a regular income. This is a very fulfilling way to earn a living. See thearticle on Developing Your Reiki Practice.

Q. Can one become Licensed to practice and teach Reiki?

A. There are no governmental licensing programs at this time. However, the Center does have a licensing program for Reiki teachers. Please see our Center Licensed Teachers Guidebook from the Center.

Q. Are there any scientific experiments that demonstrate Reiki works?

A. Yes, see the section on Reiki research.

Q. Can you get more than one attunement?

A. Once you receive a Reiki attunement, it will last your whole life. However, if you get additional attunements for the same level, it will act to refine and strengthen your Reiki energy.

Q. What is lineage?

A. Reiki is a technique that is passed on from teacher to student over and over. If one has Reiki, than she/he will be part of a succession of teachers leading back to the founder of the system of Reiki one is practicing. In the case of Usui Reiki, the lineage would lead back to Dr. Usui.
