Healing with Tuning Forks

I’m so excited to be teaching this specialized class on how to use tuning forks for healing! This is one of my biggest passions in the healing arts, and I believe there is so much creative potential when it comes to vibrational healing. After all, “everything is vibration”.

New Reiki & Sound Photos

Thanks, Alejandra of Copper Fox Photography for these beautiful photos! I had an amazing time shooting with her around my hometown “Everybody’s Home Town” of Media, PA. It was a bit chilly on this April day, but it felt good to brave the cold in order to accomplish what we set out to, a successful photo shoot!

Kambo Healing Experience

My first Kambo session was amazing. The session I did was located at 8th Chakra Yoga Studio in Santa Ana, California. The ceremony was hosted by KamboHealingMe, and the practitioners Scott and Alex were brilliant at what they did. I felt so loved and cared for. I received all of the help and guidance that I felt like I needed. So you might be wondering, why did Victoria sign up to try a medicine that comes from the back of a frog in the Amazon. One of the answers is that I have always loved frogs and they were one of my favorite animals as a child, So I felt very called to try this medicine. I also love the idea of holistic healing through sacred medicines, and I believe in the tremendous power that they hold.

My intentions for healing which I stated in the ceremony were:

-Speak my truth and be myself.

-Teach Reiki.

-Heal my relationship with money and become debt free.

-Heal my sty.

So here is what the experience felt like. The kambo burns did not really hurt that much. Just a little prick feeling. Then they put the kambo, which is in a liquid form on there to be absorbed into the body. The practitioner said “Find your meditation, Align your chakras, Send love and gratitude to the medicine. Focus on your intention. Think about how it affects the lives of others.” So I did. I really connected to thinking about my Dad. And praying for healing for him. But I know that I can only heal myself, and maybe it can affect him through symbiosis. And being brave. I felt the warmth and heat come all over my body. I felt like I was being lifted. I felt the heat in my ear canals and around my ears. I had the thought “I give my life to God & And I surrender” But I was still having a hard time purging. It’s almost like I thought I would disturb others by doing so, even though everyone else had done it. I felt like I wanted to escape and go to the bathroom to poop it out. I asked one of the facilitators “Am I supposed to throw up?” He said, “95% of people do, Otherwise you poop it out.” One of the facilitators came over to me and said: “Let it out.” He said, “you can make yourself throw up if you need to.” He motioned his hands to his mouth in the way that you would make yourself gag. As I saw him do this I could feel the purge coming and ready to be released. The throw up came out! It was amazing and beautiful. Then I received Sananga. Scott said “It helps to heal any eye issues, Vision, Cataracs, And even a sty. The eyes are the window to your soul. ” So I laid on my back and they put it in my eyes. I squirmed a lot. This part felt a bit even more intense. I scrunched up but Alex and Scott came over and both helped me. I realized when I went out of my mind and stopped thinking so much I could surrender to this medicine. I saw and felt the color purple. My body was also shaking a lot. Especially my legs. But when I stopped resisting I stopped shaking. And eventually, within a few minutes, the intensity passed and I felt the healing and integration and calmness.

After we all came back from being in the medicine, Scott said “You basically just had surgery, so be gentle and notice what you consume; What you watch, listen to and thoughts you have. Challenge yourself to no caffeine, no sugar, no alcohol, no spicy food, no sex, and no drugs for at least 3 days.

The day after my first kambo session I did feel a bit tired and drained. I tried to replenish myself with healthy food and water. Then the day after that I felt extremely energized and healthy. I could feel myself craving only healthy foods and not craving other foods I used to eat like sugar or caffeine. I felt so energized upon waking up that I didn’t need caffeine. This burst of pure energy lasted for a week or so. But I still feel the healing benefits and true change from the experience. They recommend to do 3 sessions within one moon cycle, but I was only able to do one. I hope to do more within the next year. As for my intentions, I feel like it definitely helped to clear out my system so that I could be more in touch with my own intuition and manifesting skills. It works more on the physical level and is less psychoactive, although it was still a very spiritual experience for me. I could definitely feel that it helped to heal my stye. And it definitely empowered me with Reiki, as I went on to give Holy Fire Reiki to someone that was in the ceremony with me, directly afterward!

Thank you, Kambo Spirit. I love you! I highly recommend Kambo to anyone who wishes to purify their energy and body, mind and soul. Check out the KamboHealingMe website here!  If you have any comments, insights or questions, I would love to hear your comments below!

How to Determine Your Core Values

core-values1

So, over the past four weeks, I have been lucky enough to work with Estelle of Florescit Reiki & Life Coaching. She has boosted me from a place of stagnant frustration and thinking small, to a place of taking action steps and feeling momentum in my life and career. I’ve been encouraged to look at different areas of my life, and how satisfied I am with each area in the Wheel of Life. These areas include, Relationships, Family, Career, Money, and more. I told Estelle that I felt like I needed a boost in my career, because I wasn’t where I knew I could be as a recent graduate of Drexel University.

Why take the time to think about your core values, and what is important to you? With this foundation of self knowledge and understanding, you can look back on your core values while making any sort of decision in life. You may be thinking, where do I even start?

So after about 3 weeks of working with Estelle, I saw an ad on facebook for a webinar on how to land the perfect job and the Limitless Career Lab. I attended the webinar and asked my angel cards as well as followed my intuition to determine whether to sign up for the complete course with Ashley Stahl. I took the leap and felt that no matter where it took me, I would be making huge strides of progress, based on the positive energy that Ashley was putting out to us as well has her expertise on the subject.  I received an email from Ashley called How to Find More Energy in Your Life, and of course was fascinated since it had the word energy in the title. The article resonated heavily with some of the things I had already been going over with Estelle. In the article there is a handy PDF guide from Ashley International on Identifying Your Core Values. I’ve attached the link to the complete article for you here:


Here’s How to Find More Energy in Your Life

After the initial brainstorm session with my coach Estelle, and then a weeks of narrowing down my selections, I met with Estelle again to narrow down my selections even more. The process was thorough because Estelle asked me what the words really meant to me in my life. My homework was to write my 5 core values on index cards. I didn’t want to leave anything out, so luckily I was able to write brief descriptions on the back of the cards to give some extra detail.

  1. Self-Expression
  2. Spirituality
  3. Progressiveness/Growth
  4. Community
  5. Wellness
  6. Self-Love

Initially, my 5 values were Self-expression, Spirituality, Progressiveness/Growth, Wellness, and Self-Love. After a few days going over these cards, and after reading Ashley’s guide to Identifying Core Values, I decided that Community has always been an important aspect in my life. I grew up in a neighborhood where we shared brunches on Saturdays and Sundays with neighbors, and we were able to ask for a helping hand if need be. What this means to me in my life now is that I realize we are all in this together, aka I couldn’t survive on my own, and life is way more fun with friends! I came back the next week to ask Estelle if I could keep a 6th core value and she said of course! That’s the beauty of working with Estelle, as she really holds the space for you to have the freedom to express however you dream and envision your life to be and  then guide it into a concise, real world focus. If you feel lost and confused, know you are not showing up to your full potential, or are just looking for some friendly guidance, I highly recommend Estelle!

Denial vs. Acceptance

The theme I’ve been recognizing this past week is denial vs. acceptance. In this video by Ralph Smart (Infinite Waters Diving Deep), he says that the first step to Stop Caring What Other People Think is to stop pretending that you don’t care what anyone else thinks. This really stood out to me, as lately I tend to adopt an attitude of “anything is possible” and “it will all work out perfectly”. While I do believe that the Universe is always conspiring to help me, I can’t always have a happy go lucky attitude and expect all of the work to be done for me.

Back to the idea of denial vs. acceptance… When I was in yoga class at Studio 34 yesterday, I was feeling a bit sore and frazzled and stressed from moving. And I could feel the soreness on my right side of my body, which fluctuates depending on how I sleep and my stress levels. ( I can’t wait to have my bed and more eclectic furniture in our beautiful West Philly home of healers and yogis.) The teacher, which I first met at a Yoga Sound Journey night at Sera Phi, was taking the class very slowly. This gave me time to draw inwards and really be conscious of my body. The way I have been relating to my body has been changing a lot lately. There are times where I almost feel like I am not even in my body! But I also love my body and I’m very excited to start living a healthy lifestyle with plenty of superfood smoothies, bananas and herbs! I realized that we become like the people we surround ourselves with, that’s why I chose to move in with two beautiful goddesses that live conscious lifestyles. One has brought a Berkey filter, to filter our fluoride & more from out tap water. She also placed a shungite crystal inside of the filter to energize our water. I am so grateful and excited for this year ahead of me.

Anyway, I noticed that along with my optimism and ability to envision the future, I may sometimes forego the present moment. In the yoga class, I was really able to just sit with myself and talk to my body and tell it that “it’s ok that you have pain, you don’t have to be perfect”. I also was inspired to start talking to myself because of an article in Wisdom magazine, along with this video interview of Danielle LaPorte, author of The Desire Map. The article in Wisdom is called Your Cells are Listening: How Talking To Your Body Helps you Heal. When we see people talking to themselves on the street, we assume they are either using a wireless earphone or they are crazy! Well, maybe my new technique should be to just buy a wireless earpiece so that I can talk to myself. Or I can watch Ralph Smart’s video and let go of what other people think of me! As he mentions, we will always care to some degree, but we shouldn’t let it affect our decisions. Also going along those lines is resistance. I realize that the more I resist things, the more power that gives them. The more I focus on something else, that can raise my vibration. Anyway, once I started to accept my pain, it seemed to dissipate, moving me towards my desired outcome. So I’m going to work on doing this in all other areas of my life as well! Accept where I am, as it’s exactly where I need to be.

I do know that when I am at events like PEX Summer Festival, Symbiosis Gathering and Burning Man, I can be myself times infinity. (I haven’t been to Burning Man yet, but I am planning on going this year and camping with the HeeBeeGeeBee Healers and I couldn’t be more excited!) Today during my session with Angela, I realized that one of the things I love talking about the most is Burning Man, or anything else related to Burner culture or transformational music festivals. I realized that I am a Transformational Leader!

Voicemails from Letty

I love my grandma dearly, but there are times when I feel that she is unsettling or disapproving of me, or trying to change me. She left a voicemail that said “Victoria, I just wanted to let you know that there is a job fair at Temple University today. You could go and look for a job where you can make more money.”

This really had me upset, as it was a sign that she was unaware or unsupportive of my efforts to be a full time spiritual entrepreneur, sound healer and reiki practitioner. She was nudging me to get another job. I was hoping to be productive and accomplish things while sitting on the computer at my call center job, but listening to that voicemail pulled me away from the Vortex, and being in a state of self-appreciation. I also realized that the only reason that whatever she was saying had made me upset, was because there was something that resonated with what was already there inside of me. It is true that I feel like I could be more productive and make more money, or the same amount of money in a shorter time than what I do at my current job. And that is something that I am asking the Universe for. But I’ve been feeling a bit stuck lately as I do not feel the desire to move up at my current job, I’m just keeping it to have steady income while I work on reiki. So now I’m using that upset-ness or feeling of wanting to improve and focusing it into my business.

I also realized that the only reason that whatever she was saying had made me upset, was because there was something that resonated with what was already there inside of me. It is true that I feel like I could be more productive and make more money, or the same amount of money in a shorter time than what I do at my current job. (Which I already do when I give reiki sessions!) And that is something that I am asking the Universe for more of. But I’ve been feeling a bit stuck lately as I do not feel the desire to move up at my current job, I’m just keeping it to have steady income while I work on reiki. So now I’m using that upset-ness or feeling of wanting to improve and focusing it into my business. And asking for one new paying client this week. I’m very grateful for my one steady client, that may even turn into a reiki student one day soon!

As I sat reading The Vortex by Esther and Jerry Hicks this morning, I realized that I need to get back to a state of self appreciation and into my Vortex.

51ztpws2mzl-_sx332_bo1204203200_

“If you are angry- you are not a Vibrational Match- and you are not in the Vortex.”

“If you are feeling appreciation- you are a Vibrational Match- and you are in the Vortex.”

Once I read that line, I started to cultivate and feel appreciation for my grandma and all she has done for me and given me. She gave me piano lessons as a small child which guided my strong love and appreciation for music today. She took me to Friendly’s for lunch and ice cream sundaes (healthy right?). And she will always love me, no matter what uncensored thoughts come out of her mouth. Then I read on;

“There is no more important object of attention to which you must flow your appreciation than that of self.”

Yesterday when I walked out of the office on to Philadelphia’s beautiful Broad Street, buzzing with excitement, I encountered a friend that I had recently re-met at Sera Phi in West Philly. He was sitting on the corner playing his electric bass with a hat open to receive money. We talked for a bit and I asked him a few questions about his lifestyle, because he looked so free and happy. I asked “Do you have to pay rent?” He said yes I will be gathering the money to do that soon. But he said he knows that is what he is supposed to be doing. Playing music all day every day. He said “Once I committed to doing this, things just fell into place”. And that really resonated with me, as I know that what needs to happen is for me to make a stronger commitment to my business. He described his past experience with driving 2 hours every day to work in Delaware selling BMWs. He admitted that he loved being able to test drive the cars and appreciated the beautiful craft of nice cars. But he still held that he wasn’t a big fan of money- which seems to be a common idea or belief in circles of people that I surround myself with (artists, musicians, healers).

Another quote from the Vortex:

“Many people want to experience more personal wealth at the same time that they are criticizing those who are already experiencing personal wealth”

-“I would like to be rich/ Rich people are depriving poor people of resources”

I also read a portion where Jerry, one of the authors, described his relationship with luxurious cars. “Once I left my criticism of luxury car owners behind, I drove the most expensive car that was made.” And that got me thinking about my own desires when it comes to cars. I often tell myself, I don’t need or desire luxury items. But then I thought, if I were to have a nice car, I would LOVE to have a Tesla! It would be great to be a part of the revolution or evolution of the wide spreading of clean energy.

THEN, I recalled an instance a few weeks back, where I was quietly sitting at my desk at the call center, listening to the vice president of the company talk about securing her very own Tesla car. I remember thinking, oh that’s cool that she’s progressive and getting a Tesla— but at the same time feeling very jealous and anger towards the fact that I was sitting there making $10 an hour and she was some how related to the cause of that.

Reading on, “The negative emotion that you feel when you believe that others are depriving you of something is not about what they have and therefore what you do not have. Your negative emotion, in every case, is about what you are, in the moment of your negative emotion, depriving yourself of receiving.”

I realized that, the Vice President had nothing to do with me applying for and accepting that job. She also is not the only voice that determines how much money we make there. And she certainly is not keeping me there. So I want to continue to learn and practice Self Appreciation and coming into alignment with Source so that I can be abundant in my own special way. I can receive all of MY desires.

To further this goal and journey, I signed up for a workshop with Multidimensional Healer, Bette Hanson on June 5th in Malvern, PA! Check out her website here: Bette Hanson

 

 

 

 

Dear Victoria, Free Your Mind!

13
Article 13 – Universal Declaration of Human Rights

I am writing this letter to myself because I want to bring myself back into connection with Source energy and to my good feeling place. I am not writing about my problems so that I can feel bad about them, but so that I can take a step back and gaze down from a larger perspective. And to the readers out there, maybe you have gone through something similar. (Comment below if you feel me!)

“What you’re referring to as your pain, is simply an aspect of you. A version of you, at some point in time and space, that began to run an energetic distortion.” – The Pleiadians as channeled by Nora Herold

I recently saw an email in my work inbox of my part time job at a call center where I make $10.00 per hour. I received my paycheck today and I made $460.00. The email read; Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 4.56.56 PM

I was ecstatic and emailed the person immediately. It is a part of my nature to want to have excitement, adventure and spontaneity in my life. I thought it would be wonderful to get paid $15 and come out with almost $500 after one week. I received an email today saying that I was accepted to be an actor in the performance and to return the contract and W9. I got overly excited and happy about my bright and exciting future and rushed home to get to my computer. I asked again if she had seen my previous email regarding my work schedule conflicts. She replied; You must make all of the dates or you can not participate. I started crying and feeling similar to when you are little and run to your room and slam the door and start crying into the pillow because your parents tell you that you can’t do something you wanted to do. I felt this angst toward my job in general. Thoughts were racing through my head of quitting and living the life of a freelance worker. But then I realized, I was the one that signed up for this job in the first place. I was the one that sent in my Resume and Cover Letter and accepted the position. I wanted to have a part time job so that I could focus on my other passions outside of the job; Reiki and Yoga. Of course, fears were also running through my head and thoughts of self-doubt. Fear that I will be stuck in this boring job forever, or that I will never make a real positive impact on the world.  Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 5.08.16 PM

I took a deep breath and realized that I was placing the blame on external factors for making me feel upset or flustered; job, manager, lack of freedom, low pay rate… Yes these things are all things to be considered for the cause of my frustration, but all in all, I have to bring myself back to the good feeling place and back to my center. Sometimes, I also get flustered with decision making and the fact that “anything is possible”. And that I can create the life I desire. But I like to think that it’s a co-creation between myself and the Universe, as well as other co-creators. So I can try to ease up on every minute decision as if it will change the course of my life; ie. The Butterfly Effect.

The scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever.- Urban Dictionary

That then lead me to click on the definition of The Chaos Theory.

In physics, it’s a tad more complicated. It states all subatomic and nucleonic particles are all united under ONE force, not gravity, but a very powerful force which holds the very essence of protons, electrons and neutrons together. It branches out into every facet of our existence. Infinite correlation, no probability.- Urban Dictionary

This definition made me feel a bit more comforted, as it mentions “ONE force”, which I can relate to Universal Life Energy, or Source. My goal is to stay in alignment with Source as often as possible, and to become more in touch with my own intuition and to learn to follow my gut instincts. And to learn to say No to what is no longer serving me! It would be more fun to participate in the installation, than sit at my boring job. But it’s also nice to have that peace of mind to know that I can pay my rent, do a few things I love, and still have time to work on building my Reiki and Sound Healing business and clients. I could have stressed and asked my manager to make it work, but I’m already very thankful for the requests to be off that he has fulfilled for me.

In more exciting news, here are two of those events that I was able to gain amnesty for! :

1441037701
Free Your Mind Conference

I will be attending the FYM conference on Saturday the 16th. It was an expensive ticket, but this is one of the things that I don’t mind spending money on in order to further my career and life purpose.

 

Intuitive Development- Spring Series

I’m excited for the upcoming Intuitive Development-Spring Series with Alex DiFilippo at The Reiki School. I attended a few of the Chakra Balancing workshops with Alex in the fall, and the intuitive readings gave me great guidance and insight to things I may have never realized and life tools I never would have tried otherwise (notably Kundalini Yoga).

I love to watch YouTube videos from the greats like Ralph Smart and Teal Swan. Sometimes I compare myself to them or other spiritual leaders and wish I was further along the path to my dreams. But I always have to remember the quote from Preston Smiles “Stay in Your Lane”. The one good thing about my call center job is that it’s a step up from my retail job. I can actually drink coffee in between calls and use the world wide web to communicate or do research regarding my Divine Life Purpose or whatever interests me at the moment.

For now, I can let go and trust that, with my own perseverance and the Divine Order of the Universe, things will work out eventually.

Peace & Love

Sincerely,

Victoria

 

Life is the real Spiritual Teacher

I can read as many spiritual texts as I want, and attend as many classes and seminars as I can, but nothing beats the lessons learned from living life and expanding my consciousness.

“The play of opposites produces beauty

The difficult times and the difficult challenges and the difficult people; they are not all to be frowned at and to be frustrated with. They do not specifically exist to cause you to not be happy and free.

More often than not, the things that you find really enchanting and creative and that touch you in a deep place, you’ll find that those things came to exist by way of the difficulties caused by frustrations and challenges.

When it is daytime we do the things that daytime calls for. We make use of the daylight to the best of our ability and sometimes we take the time to do nothing but to sit back and relax in the warmth and beauty of the sunlight.

When the nighttime comes, we use that time for rest and also for recreation. Sometimes we sit outside and enjoy the breeze and we look up at the sky where we see the stars twinkling, and we see the moon being true to itself as it is in that moment. Sometimes it is a half moon or a crescent, and sometimes it is a full moon; the look of which leaves us in awe.

Even when you can’t help but to frown at life, let all of the frowns and frustrations be at the surface of your being, because the things that cause frowns and frustration exist only at the surface level. Deep down at the bottom line of life, there is always beauty. And it is with that beauty that you should stay connected to because that beauty is not separate from who you truly are.” – Babajide Faseyi 

 

I wanted to write this post as a thank you to my friend Babajide F.

He is a conscious man in Philadelphia working as a bike courier, but he is also an amazing writer and author. He is very generous as he “writes his heart out” and posts inspirational, truthful and spiritual insights on facebook every day. Sometimes I wonder, “why isn’t he famous yet?” But during our phone conversation today, he told me that there is no need to rush our life’s journey. He even explained that as humans, we are a part of nature as well, and he used the analogy, “there is no way that a caterpillar can turn into a butterfly in one minute, or that a 3 foot tree can turn into an 8 foot tree in an hour.”

I told him that I often see quotes online that say something along the lines of :

tumblr_njhrpi0jut1sjwxoco1_500

Or even worse:every-day-like-its-your-last

I told him that these quotes often make me feel stressed or rushed, or questioning why I haven’t gotten to where I envision myself to be. Where I know I can be in my dream world, and why that isn’t translating into reality as quickly as I may like it to. His response was very comforting. He said, there is no “day”, there is only right now. And that may sound like it could make me even more rushed, or to want accomplish everything right now! But I know that he meant that I don’t have to stress or worry about the future or the past, what I have and haven’t yet accomplished in the real world, because I am me (a spiritual being having a human experience). tumblr_mldobbiyuq1sn04vzo1_1280

I found this quote as I was searching for the other quotes. It is interesting to philosophize about this quote from the perspective that Babajide brought to me. Buddha was not saying to rush & live every day like it’s your last! But maybe something more along the lines of just be present in every moment, and be here now. Open your eyes and look out the window and see the beautiful trees, air and sunlight. And give yourself a big hug and say “I love and accept myself.”

I wanted to share a brief story of an unfortunate event that happened in my life recently (or fortunate depending on how you look at challenges). So, I have a Tinder profile, as many millennials in this day and age do. I listed my website and the fact that I am a Reiki Master. I received an inquiry for a Reiki session on my website and found out that he discovered me through Tinder. I was excited to book my first session at the Healing Arts Collective. Long story short, he said he “didn’t feel anything” after the session was over. He asked “what was that supposed to do?”. On his intake form he had written “No Goals” for what he would like to get out of the session. Afterwards he did mention that he wished we had connected more, or that I could explain a bit more about Reiki since it was his first session. Of course I knew that the Reiki was flowing through me during the session, but he may not have been open to receiving the healing energy.

I told Babajide of this story, and he comforted me once again by saying; “Everything happens in the spiritual realm before it happens in the physical realm”. He said that even though this man may not have immediately felt any physical effects, he still may have felt healing in the spiritual realms, or you may have changed his life. Even though this man may have only wanted to meet me for some sort of date, the Reiki session still occurred.

It was definitely a learning experience. I should also remember to “practice without expecting”, as a few of my teachers have said. This means to give a reiki session without planning or hoping for a certain outcome. I still usually hope that the receiver feels good afterwards, and have a positive intention for the greatest healing good. But, I still can not let myself get upset or offended if someone does not “feel anything”. Babajide also said that it is ok to explain or translate things to those who may be at a different level of consciousness. He said that in his writings, he sometimes has to write so that the general public can understand it, even though the message is coming from a very highly conscious level. In the future, I hope that I can be more communicative and be able to explain reiki to clients and people all over the world.

 

Sincerely,

VKP

Victoria’s New Home for Reiki!

I am so happy to announce that I will be available to do Reiki and sound healing sessions at the Healing Arts Collective on South Street! (519 South 9th Street to be exact).

1430828132

I will be available for sessions every Wednesday from 10 AM to 8:30 PM. If that time does not work for you, please let me know and we can work something out.

I am so excited about giving Reiki sessions in this studio, because of the great community that surrounds it. I have taken classes and attended gatherings including the First Friday Conscious Yoga & Dance party and Community Wellness Day. I attend Kundalini Yoga classes at the studio (almost) every week. And I have learned so many new energy techniques just by attending classes and learning from the amazing teachers.

Last night in Kundalini Yoga with Haripal Singh, he mentioned that each one of us has our own aura, or electromagnetic signature. I love talking about auras, but I really liked his choice of words to describe it; “electromagnetic signature”. We did plenty of Breath of Fire in various poses throughout the class. Among the many benefits of practicing the Breath of Fire technique is that it:

“Charges your aura and circumvent force to give you greater protection against negative forces” – Kundalini Yoga Info.com

Anyway, I liked his phrasing because, for the more science minded people, it explains that even though we can’t see it, we do have energy around our bodies, just like any other unseen energy on the electromagnetic spectrum.

New Moon, Letting go

DSC04118-Exposure copyI just got done another Kundalini yoga class with Marilyn at the Healing Arts Collective. The first time I went to the class, the chanting and singing and repetitive motions were new and I had to open my eyes to make sure I was doing it correctly. I still had to open my eyes tonight to see some of the movements, but I also practiced closing my eyes and going at my own pace (as Marilyn told us to do). And it’s interesting because part of the meditation was about guidance.

And I just wanted to mention that one of the reasons I started going to Kundalini yoga was because of a sacral chakra balancing/healing workshop that I went to a few months ago with Alexandra D. at The Reiki School + Clinic. Lately as I have been walking and biking around the city I’ve been noticing tons of Psychic readers and their store signs and advertisements. But from my experience with these types of readers, they aren’t really the most beneficial to me. I am only saying this because I want to recommend Alexandra as an intuitive reader.

Anyway, after the Awaken Fair, another healer mentioned my blockage in my throat chakra. This was no surprise as other healers have mentioned it before. But all I can do is slowly and patiently keep working on it. In the ReikiSound class, we have been learning to use the voice for healing purposes. In one exercise, we did a partner exercise where we read the phrase

“{First Name} I unconditionally love, trust and support you, just the way you are in body… mind… spirit and in sound …light…love.”- Natalie Bliss, ReikiSoundBliss.com

We practiced reading it without consciously sending reiki and the second time we read it while letting our voice carry the reiki to our partner. My partner was Natalie and she mentioned that she noticed the way my voice changed the second time, and it sounded like my voice was flowing out of me more naturally. I even noticed a difference tonight during the kundalini class, as I let the mantras and songs resonate as a way of healing, not trying to sound any particular way. I suppose I naturally try to match the tone of the teacher, but I also think that makes the sound and healing more powerful. I could really feel the energy tonight. And I am so happy about the new moon in Aquarius. I woke up with some pain in the left side of my neck. During the class tonight, I remembered that I should go back to my parents house and grab the Mind Body Connection book by John Sarno that I still have to read. Of course I have so much to read. But as I am on this healing journey, I wonder how much of physical pain really manifests from mental or emotional pain. It may have been the way I slept, but I also wasn’t feeling 100% last night. So anyway, this is just something that I want to continue to explore.

I also learned from this diagram, that the associated chakra for my sign (Sagittarius) is the Zeal Point chakra, located near the top of the spine and the occipital lobe area. Another source said that the chakra associated with Sagittarius is the third eye. But I think the third eye chakra and the Zeal Point chakra are closely related. I am very grateful that my teacher Natalie is letting each person in the ReikiSound class borrow a singing bowl for the week. I found a bowl that “sings” a G# which is the note associated with the Zeal Point and Sagittarius. It has been working wonders for me (or rather we have been co-creating wonderfully). And I think with the help of that frequency entering my life I was able to have some nice visualizations during the kundalini class. I do want to work on trusting my inner guidance and loving myself more and more every day. DSC04115-Exposure copy
