Beyond the Battle

17yewb

Most everywhere you look nowadays people are in battle. Religions are in battle, politicians are in battle, and people in general are in battle with others and within themselves.

Some of these battles are happening because conscious caring people are trying to fight against injustice or unfairness. We have been taught that we must fight for our rights, fight against cancer, fight for our children and the list goes on.

Depression and anxiety has become common place and within that, there is a great battle within the self. People with mental health/acute sensitivity often feel that every day is a battle to just get through.

We come from a history of war fought on many fronts. Some wars came out of needing to protect the vulnerable but most nowdays, come from the need to win over and beat another and to profit in some way. The word battle comes from the Latin ‘battuere’ ‘to beat’.

This is primarily what battle is about, the winner beating the loser.

Trapped in the duality of choosing or being, one or the other – If you dont win, you lose and if you lose, you didnt win….

Through religion and superstition,  history shows that we have been reared and suckled through the duality of GOOd vs EVIL, the DEVIL vs GOD, the LIGHT vs DARK and MAN vs WOMAN.

This perception has been handed down from one generation to the next by both men and women and and due to this people have become polarised, believing  that it has to be one or the other.

Even in these modern times with all the wholistic based new age therapies there is still this underlying ‘battle’ that many assume they need to fight.

If you come across a shadow being in non ordinary reality, in this state of mind, people still often perceive it as ‘evil’ and that my friends, sets up a battle from the get go.

Again I am reminded of one of my all time favourite stories ‘Angulimala meets the6153562566_725db94d9a_b Buddha’ (link to a simplified version of it @ https://www.clear-vision.org/Schools/Students/Ages-4-7/story-of-Angulimala.aspx

Story telling has always been a way of teaching lessons in some way. And the story of Angulimala, to me is a story of moving beyond the ‘Battle’.

At the core of the original Buddhist teachings, being in the state of the witness and being in the state of compassion are the two primary practices.

One learns to move beyond the battle of the mind and become the viewing witness without an agenda. In being in this witness state of mind, there is no good or evil. It simply just ‘is’.

Add to that being in a state of compassion and the dualism, the battle dissolves. This to me is the teachings of when Angulimala meets up with Buddha and Buddha does not go into battle with him, nor seeks to win.

I am not saying we all need to be fluffy mung bean and peace about everything. Believe me I get beyond cranky at injustices, meanness and cruelty of any kind and I stand up and speak up when I feel its important. I also stand up in non ordinary reality to anything that I find of imbalance that may want to suck from me.

However standing my ground is very different to going into battle. I witness within myself that if I move fully into the state of ‘Battle’ I don’t emanate a good vibration. I moon+horns+deer+fantasy+art+glowing+artwork+stag+1920x1080+wallpaper_www.wall321.com_66don’t like myself much and nothing productive comes from it. Purge my anger, sure. Go into battle….no.

This is what made the difference when I was battling a storehouse of entity invasion when I was in my late 2o’s and and different times after that till I really got a hold on how to deal what I refer to as ‘Uninvited Guests’.

When people contact me saying they are being invaded by ‘evil’ beings. I know they are in ‘battle mode’. This mode is totally draining and detrimental to ones health both mentally and physically and its based in fear and reaction. I can hear a thought pop up from someone who would say “So do I become a doormat and surrender to it?’ No, not at all. That is the duality of seeing ones self as ‘losing’

The remedy is not lying down and saying ‘beat me’.

The medicine is

Standing strong in your core self

If you do not have a strong inner core then build your sanctuary within, practice recapitulation daily, work with your power animals that help you feel safe and protected, meditate on a warm light emanate from your centre, practice inner house cleaning, clean your space regularly both energetically and physhically and practice the meditation for sensitive’s.

Moving into the state of the witness

If you do not have a strong inner witness learn simple non religious based buddhist mediative techniques e.g.: Vipassana or Mindfulness.

Emanating compassion

If you do not have a strong sense of compassion then you may want to learn a mediative technique called ‘Metta’ (compassionate loving kindness) which moves one into a state of caring for others without attachment and or begin working with your inner child, which moves one into a state of compassionate awareness)

When these three gems are united there is no need for battle. One can stand in ones own strength. The dark is simply the unknown until its known via the witness and the light of compassion is what dissolves that which is out of balance.

This is how we move beyond the battle within and without.

One can stand strong, speak up, hold ones space, reclaim anything that has been lost within and clear off anything that does not belong.

So lets drop this word ‘Evil’ and replace it with the word ‘Imbalance’
And lets put the weapons of battle down, stand in our power and emanate compassion both for ourselves and for those that are lost in the dark.

The Shamanic Experience

Born to be wildWhat defines shamanism in comparison to other paths of consciousness??

The main thing that separates shamanism from other spiritual pathways is it is not based on a academic or religious philosophy or belief, nor is there a particular leader or gods or goddesses to worship and there is no one common story or mythology that  was born out of its knowing.

In that is completely different to all other pathways. It combines well with other things to an extent but because it’s not based on ‘belief or doctrine’ it tends to stand alone.

Shamanism is primarily about the EXPERIENCE. And its not something one can intellectualize in the thinking of the mind, it’s a wholistic experience that effects all parts of the being, mind, spirit, soul, body.

In todays times humanity is big on what sells, what one can acquire and what one must have. This is about consumerism and spirituality has been sold to the consumer big time. The quick fix does not include experience, its generally either shutting down an aspect of the self or its only touching on the superficial by a fast rush like hit of what could be.

Like teaching a child to walk, one learns by the experience over and over again and then once they have worked out the fundamentals they can walk with ease. Shamanism takes time to learn just like walking does. But the benifits are so worth the time invested.

I have always seen shamanism as a deep diving experience. That does not mean that oneFreeDivingscience_web_1024 chooses to be drowned in the darkness of the unconsious. It means that through intention and skill one can move in to a deeper place and see whats at the bottom of the issue and bring it back to the surface, to the light of acceptance, validation and acknowledgement and in that it transforms and transmutes into a learning experience.

Many people think that diving deep into the experience will create a state of feeling lost in the dark, or going mad as a hatter. It could not be further from the truth if you have learnt the tools that will help you navigate. Once you know the terrain it is not difficult to navigate your way back to the surface. This is why shamanism offers tools to help you manage what in ordinary reality or the western psychology models is not seen or comprehended.

Without the actual experience it is just information fodder. When you really move into something with committed intent you can experience such profound shifts from the core and no it doesnt have to be horribly hard either. I find shamanism the most fun out of any path I have been on. I recently did a journey session with a client and she came out of it giggling, When she opened her eyes she looked at me with such glee and said ‘Now I know what you mean about not needing to travel so much outside when you have such realms to adventure from within!’ I love the adventure of shamansim. The adventure is the experience and I have yet to be bored by it. Its in my Soul DNA for sure.

Most people when they begin experiencing shamanism tend to learn firstly from the mind (the safe starter position) and the imagination (creative right brain) and then they take a further step and ‘experience’. The imagination is the doorway to experience but one only really ‘knows’ by experience itself.

I was recently telling some of my past challenges to a friend who was visiting as she was inquiring and was curious. I heard myself speak of several challenging experiences in my life and as I shared, I witnessed that there was absolutely no charge on what I spoke of. I shared some very deep wounds that in the past had such a huge impact on my life  and now they are much like other lives within this life that are now at peace. Why? Because every wound that arises has a lesson in it for me to EXPERIENCE and its up to me to ingest it, own it, transform it and release it.

TransformationShamanism is a living experience where worlds are multi layered and time is irrelevant.
Shamanism brought forth my inner family, my inner safety and my calling.

All these things came via me

EXPERIENCING them.

Take a walk down the stairs from your mind into your heart
Then into your soul
And EXPERIENCE what is occurring.
Be the EXPERIENCE.
Learn through the EXPERIENCE.
Transform the EXPERIENCE
and let it go.

Recapitulation Reminder

600_451159830Dear Kin

Many of you ask me about recapitulation over and over again. I have posted it before so this time please copy it and keep it. It’s an essential tool to survive in this busy chaotic climate. It is a very old shamanic technique that is easy to do and you can really go deep with it in your own time.

Look and see if the outbreath or inbreath is deeper, fuller, longer when you practice. This lets you know if you are more likely to give your power away or that you absorb too much of others debri’s.

Recapitulation is akin to a mini soul retrieval and can get you through challenging time until you find a good practitioner to work with to do deeper work. You can also find it and other tools and journey tips in my workbook at my website.

 

Recapitulation

Recapitulation is going back in time to recover energy that has been lost. In the past chapters we have been looking at clearing the energy in your home and cutting cords to prevent people draining your energy. Now we are going to go back in time and reclaim lost energy and give back energy that is not yours.

It is obvious why we have to get back lost energy, but maybe not so obvious why we have to give back energy that is not ours. It is a shamanic law that energy can only be used by the person who originally owned it. If energy is given to us, or we inadvertently take energy from another person or even if we try to steal energy from someone else, we cannot use it if it is not ours. If we cannot use it what use is it to us? It has no use at all except to become a burden to carry around. Anything that has no use becomes a burden in time, and burdens drain energy, make us tired and weaken us physically. The reason we are doing this shamanic work is to find out what is really ours, and if something belongs to someone else we need to either give it back or simply let it go and hopefully it will find its way back to where it belongs.

Recapitulation can be an enormous task that takes years for the ‘serious shaman’ or it can be an activity that is done everyday in just a few minutes. We will start off by explaining the easy way first.

 

Daily Recapitulation

At some time during the day, possibly before you go to bed at night, take some quite time and go over the events of the day. Maybe you would like to write a list in your journal of everyone you had contact with on this day. Then start at the top of the list and focus you mind on all of the interactions you had with this person. Remember with as much detail as you can: the situation; what happened with this person; how you felt at this time and any thought or decisions you made about yourself or that person or life itself.

 

The interaction doesn’t have to be unpleasant for you to lose energy. A caring and loving friend may give you their energy and call it compassion or healing, but remember you can’t use other people’s energy and no matter how well meaning they are you need to give it back. You can even pick up energy from people in the street who you are not even aware of.

 

There are very fine filaments between you and a person and a situation you were in together, like cords only much more subtle. The process of remembering strengthens these filaments and allows you to take back any energy you have lost. Also it enables you to give back through the same filaments any negative energy that came to you during that time. For example: eating at a busy restaurant. There are lots of energies of different people who possibly have never been cleared from the space. That’s not to say its negative or bad is just wasn’t cleared, and that’s the energy you may walk away with.

 

How much energy do you pick up in a normal day? How much energy do you lose in a normal day? It’s a wonder we have any usable energy at all with this mixing and mingling so it’s very important to sort out and recapitulate to recover that which is ours and to clear out that which does not belong to us.

Recapitulation With Important People And Situations In Your Life

If you can do the daily process regularly that is great. Now you have gained some of your lost energy and feel you would like to take the next step, set aside an hour or so and begin recovering some of your lost energy, and giving back inappropriate energy from others from your past. Of course you will not be able to recapitulate all of the people and situations that follow, just do as much as you have energy and concentration for each time.

SET YOUR SCENE: find some time for yourself when you wont be interrupted, clear your space and light a candle to make this process sacred. Take a few minutes to be quiet and to focus you mind.

WHO IS THE PERSON WHO HAD THE MOST IMPACT UPON YOU IN THE PAST? It maybe your mother, your father, a sibling, a lover, or an ex-lover, husband or wife, teacher or student, just accept the first person that comes to mind. Don’t try to analyse your choice, trust that your subconscious is in contact with you conscious mind and is helping with this decision. Start with who ever comes in to your memory now.

Go through the RECAPITULATION process, getting the memory as clear as you can, turning your head and breathing. It is important to take you time and go over each scene with this person thoroughly, it is much better than whizzing though quickly so you are finished and can get on to the next person. This recapitulation make take you months or even years, and it is much more effective if you take your time with each step.

Suggested areas for clearing

If you feel the need for making your list one day and coming back to RECAPITULATE it at a later date when you have more inclination for the full process, that’s great too. Just start wherever you like and do whatever you like, whenever you like. Its all part of the process, the main thing is just to start and do it because you want to not because you think you should.

Recapitulation With Important People In Your Life

Mothers and Fathers

Siblings

Friends

Other family members

Lovers, ex lovers, present lover(s)

School, university, teacher, students

Work, workmates, bosses

Holidays, places, people, sports, games.

 

PARENTS AND FAMILY AS YOU WERE GROWING UP.

Make a list of times when you may have lost energy to your mother. She may have put out negative energy by way of feelings, thoughts or beliefs that you picked up. Don’t judge the energy exchange, the process will do that for you, just remember times in your life when there have been “memorable” situations with your mother, from as early as you can remember up to the present. Take your time and go over each scene carefully and thoroughly, turning your head and breathing. RECAPITULATING your energy all the time.

NOTE: Have your journal handy and write every emotion you are feeling and every thought or decision you make about her or yourself at that time. Later when you have learnt Quantum Dynamics you can set to and clear the charge on the feelings.

 

When you have finished clearing as much as you can at this time with your mother (and that could be a mammoth task) you can begin with your father. Make a list of all the times you were with him or not with him, which may have made more of an impact on a little person. Write on you list as many scenes as you can remember. When you have done that, start with the first scene and bring it to mind as clearly as you can, remembering the situation, where it was, other people involved in this scene, how it came about, and how you were feeling at the time.

 

Turn you head and breathe, recovering your energy and sending back energy that you picked up at the time. Send back thoughts and decisions that were not yours, letting go of imprinting from your father or others at that time. Remember to write in your journal emotions, feelings, thoughts and decisions you made at that time that are not really in your best interest to keep. The clearing will happen later with QD.

 

Siblings possibly had quite an influence on you, as would grandparents and other members of an extended family. Recapitulate each one separately taking your time and going over each person and situations that come to mind concerning these people. You may be quite surprised just what memories you uncover in this process.

The Journey

JourneyMore times than I can count I see people wanting to be ‘fixed’. They want what ever is their life challenge to be healed. I remember when I was younger wanting the same. I remember wishing that I wasn’t that sensitive and wanting to be ‘normal’ like everyone else. Like that was ever going to happen! Ha!

What people seem to miss when doing any kind of inner deep work is that its a journey. The inner work is not the western model of ‘fixing’ something.

As a soul you came here and agreed to certain challenging lessons. It didn’t say ‘hey! give me a dysfunctional family to be born into.’ But your soul knew that coming into this life you would be learning and discovering and it would be a life journey (however long that may be).

Every inner discovery is a deeper step on the journey. Every opening will lead you deeper and to see more than you did previously.

I know that my soul came purposely to be challenged but I also see the beauty in my journey. The depth of experience has increased ten fold, not because I have succeeded in anything…more that I have not given up, ever. I am tenacious and if I am still here I still have more to learn.

Feeling uncomfortable on the journey is an opportunity to be stretched from within. This is the time to meditate (however that feels right for you to do) clear the mind debri’s by writing what is churning within and then practice your tools. Nothing will be gained if you don’t take action.

bilbo-bagginsLike in the Hobbit movie. It begins as an adventure and then challenges have to be overcome and fears confronted. You like the Hobbit have spirit kin (friends) within that can assist you, just like Frodo does, but ultimately its up to you to find the inner soul strength. Bilbo and Frodo were not big on confidence, yet they had good hearts, courage a sense of humour and great persistence when things were at their darkest.

If you want something to change you will need to take daily action. You will need to tether your camel. (In brief is from an old parable about a camel herder who was too tired to tether his camel and told Allah to take care of it for him. He awoke to it gone. The learning then was ‘ Tether your camel because your hands are the hands of Allah)

When you fully take responsibility for your own journey without blaming another then you will grow and gain insight, if however your don’t put the time into it, then you may be constantly spinning in confusion.

Will there be resistance to doing these practices, journeying within and taking responsibility for your souls journey in this life? Of course! Resistance is part of the journey of learning to trust in yourself and your choices. Thank the resistance (the protector from within and step forward)

Time: When you look at a season like Autumn, the leaves don’t let go all in one go, it 58690ed0fda9fce2dfb2cb3eab0417f2happens gradually and in natures time. Letting go is a process and honestly if you let go all at once there is a chance that you could not cope with the shift and end up in massive out of body crisis….so please don’t be in such a hurry. Allow yourself to grow and learn by experience. Each step is hugely valuable along the journey of the soul.

Stay in the journey of the moment that you are in. Sit in it. Write down the things that feel out of balance in your life right now. There may be situations where you cannot change the outer circumstances, but you can change the inner responses. You can change how you respond or react to what is out of balance. That is in your control.

Clear any debri’s by using tools like recapitulation, cording, clearing projections and clearing your aura, Meditation for sensitives, inner house cleaning etc. Journey to your inner child , hang out, listen to him/her love them up for a time….

You are exactly where you are meant to be. You have not done anything wrong. This is your journey and you are where you need to be in your life to stretch and learn and find insight.

a607fc095ff1c2532045f65b61dd6bd7Wherever you go, your journey will go with you. If you don’t like where you are at and have the ability to change the outer circumstances, do that. If not, adapt and find ways to self nourish, debrief with someone you trust (not your partner or parent) and take each day as an opportunity to grow and be stretched.

When I was young, I thought it was all about the destination. Time and experience has shown me that the destination will take care of itself, the journey is right here and right now and its up to me how I engage with it.

Gratitude is something that enhances the journey, no matter how challenging. If you find it difficult to pick 5 things a day you are grateful for, its telling you that you need to journey within more and nourish.

We are all on a journey

You can see it as an arduous sentence or a challenging adventure.
Attitude is everything.

 

703b05d31620bd157ff60d5907a29ae4.jpgAs Helen Keller said: Life is either a great adventure…or nothing.

When you see the inner life as an adventure and wounds as souls challenges to be balanced you are well on your way.

Life as a soul in an earthsuit is a journey that can make your life much richer, deeper and multidimensional.

The Art of Earthing The Spirit In Trying Times

1140-mother-earth-nick-wongThere are occasions when you are not able to escape into nature perhaps because you live in a dense city or a cookie cutter wide spread suburb, or maybe all the nature that you do have around you is a tree in a concrete made pothole or a kid’s playground where there is a lot of traffic surrounding it.

Maybe you are driving or a passenger in some vehicle with others that trigger you and it feels like there is no escape and the only place you stop at is a petrol station or some takeaway roadside drive in.

Maybe you have to stay at some relative’s house and sleep in the spare room, which you feel alien to and there is a blizzard outside or it’s just somewhere that seems to have no life.

Maybe you are near a forest but it has been burnt or cut down due to corporate greed and there isn’t an animal to be seen.

Maybe you live in the middle of a city and even taking off your shoes to walk on the grass in a park looms the risk of stepping on a syringe.

Many people refer to ‘Earthing’ as taking off your shoes and connecting your feet with the earth in someway. Sometimes that doesn’t feel possible. Like the person who lives in a high-rise apartment and the only Earthing thing they have is a pot plant on the windowsill. I guess you could fill a kitty litter tray with dirt and stand in it, but hey its not really the same.

So let’s look at another way you can earth yourself no matter where you are or what environment you are in.

Your body (what I refer to as your ‘Earth suit’) is made uvastu-shastra-5-elementsp of the elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Air and Space.

Earth:

Bones, nails, teeth, muscles, cartilage, tendons, skin, and hair.

Water:

Plasma, blood, saliva, nasal secretion, digestive juice, eye secretion, mucus, cytoplasm, cerebrospinal fluid and liquid inside the cell.

Fire:

Body temperature and responsible for digestion, absorption, assimilation and regulate metabolism.

Air:

Movement include muscular movement, lungs contraction, intestines movement and movement in every cell.

Space:

Mouth, nostrils, thorax, abdomen, respiratory tract, and cells.

MotherEarth2The mother earth which we reside on has all these elements just as we do. So we are indeed connected to the earth vibrationaly and physically…. one with the earth. The thing that keeps us separate is our monkey mind, full of worries, judgments, opinions, resistances etc.

So just for a moment, I want to imagine that you in your sensory being-ness, the being residing in the EARTH suit body you chose for this life, has the same core elements of the earth.

You can be volcanic and passionate (fire), you can deeply emotional and adaptable (water), you can be present and grounded (earth), you can communicate through a number of ways (air) and within all of these elements that you are….. there is SPACE to BE.

Now take that being-ness and breathe it in all the way down to your belly (the core of the earth that you are) Feel your fire that can transform and bring action, feel your water, strong yet gentle and mutable when need be. Feel your air and listen to what your spirit and your inner child is trying to communicate to you. Feel your spirit coming into your EARTH suit and filling up the space.

Mother-EarthGround and earth yourself within your own being. Hold space for yourself.

This is another way of Earthing that is beyond this ordinary reality.

Take a little time out, wherever you are and consciously breath your spirit into your earth suit which is in resonant alignment with the cosmic Mother Earth that if free of any suffering and just BE for a little while regardless of the environment that you find yourself in.

If you are able to be in the woods or on a beach or somewhere in nature… Go ahead, take your shoes off. But if you can’t you can still be earthed.

Blessings to all

Odette

PS: This is a video that can wrap you up in the space of connection and earth you at the same time. The area that it is filmed is where I did my training. It is to me, a sacred space and Satish offers a sacred way of viewing things. One of my favorite Videos! Enjoy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Protection And Foil Hats In A World Gone Mad

671b1851e295afb1861b83590cdfed30--paper-hats-foil-artHave you ever felt bombarded by so much discordant collective noise within and without that you had a thought that maybe if you were to wear a foil hat you may be able to reflect all that discord and it will bounce right off you? No? Well there are people who do. This foil hat tends to show up most commonly in some that have become homeless and who are overwhelmed by the collective invasive white noise. They are attempting to feel a little safer in a world that feels riddled with danger and intrusion.

Odd you say? Cray Cray you say? Well maybe not socially acceptable but personally I don’t find it that odd at all. Have I donned the aluminium paper hat myself? Well no I haven’t (and in saying that I may well experiment one day) but weirdly I can see that in some way it has a kind of logic to it. It’s a need to go under the radar so to speak, to avoid the collision with the collective barrage that seems to seep into acutely sensitive folk. The belief is that the reflection of the foil may help to bounce and reflect what’s invasive. This has been studied and it does help with radio waves but apparently not a lot else, however it seems it’s a symbolic act of trying to protect oneself from feeling invaded. And that is indeed very common with acutely sensitive people.

You see many, acutely sensitive people experience trouble finding themselves in the midst of all the noise. Whether that be auditory or energetically. There are people who have felt a desperate need to protect themselves to the point that they ‘believe’ and feel safer with the concept of a protective, reflective foil hat.

A Jew wears a Kippah, a Muslim wears a Hijab, a nun may wear a habit, the Pope wears a hat called a ‘Papal tiara’ (ok that made me chuckle when I looked that up!) and the list of hats go on. Some say the wearing of a symbolic spiritual hat is about keeping the crown chakra covered (not that the may use that terminology) so there is a clear connection to their god/ the presence above.

So maybe the unwell homeless person wants to protect their crown chakra too and tin foil seems a better protection than a used plastic bag. Fair enough I say! Whatever works. I mean there is a group of seemingly san people who have legalized wearing spaghetti strainers! (Pastafarians/ Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster). They are legal to the point of being able to wear their strainers in a driver’s license photo. Fortunately they have a sense of humour about it. Maybe they evolved from the foil gang! Who knows!homeless-tin-foil-man

I remember wearing a pair of sunglasses once and thinking how protective they felt. Like I was out in the world but no-one could see my eyes. I have talked to people with sunglasses on and found it irritating that I couldn’t get a deeper sense of them because their eyes were protected. The eyes show so much. I think sunglasses have become modern day protector wear. I don’t wear them myself as I feel disconnected with them on. Like the block my full seeing and sensing range.

The acutely sensitive person feels invaded through all of the energy bodies that surround the human/earthsuit form.

img81

The Physical Body: How it effects their body memory

The Etheric Body: The spiritual skin of the body

The Mental Body: The mind feeling invaded with collective unwelcome invasive negative thoughts

The Spiritual Body: Psychically feeling beset by invasive entities and drained of life force

The Emotional Body: How you respond or react to the invasion and how it makes you feel about yourself and your place in the world.

The sensitive person is like an open portal that has difficulty in closing themselves down to the collective overwhelm. If they don’t find a way to close off then they tend to lose their sense of self. And in that they lose insight.

One of the most common ways of self protection in todays time is ‘Anger’. We are in the rawness of the fight or flight battle. It seems as if anger has taken a major seat in how things are dealt with in the word today and it often comes out of feeling completely helpless.

There can be a great sense of power in being and acting angry and many people are feeling powerless in todays times that they are feeling that anger is a better protector. Its not really, its just more armour that gets heavier and heavier to carry.

It all comes down to not feeling safe within the self.

The person wearing the foil hat is hoping all that shit is going to bounce off their hat and leave them be. Who’s to say a foil hat is any worse than a pair of sunglasses where no-one can see your eyes. Sure you may be more acceptable in the latter, but maybe it’s the top of your head where you can feel it all coming through. You know that soft part at the top of your head that was open when you were born?

In my experience safety is built from within. As you can be in a safe environment but if you have a great deal of fear inside, it will keep you awake, keep your worrying, fearing and no matter what the outside seems like, there is a threat from within.

crown-chakraThat soft part of the top of the head is still energetically open, much like a lotus flower and if its open 24/7 and you are a sensitive being you are going to feel drained.


Medicine Tool Tip.

When in sacred space.

Close your eyes and call in your kin and see a lotus blossom at the top of your head. See it opening wide and flat. See the yellow stamens at the centre, like natural antenna. Rest and connect in this OPEN space and do any medicine work eg: Auric clearing of debri’s. Gently close the lotus when you are done. Not too tight or you will get a headache.

Before going out.

Practice closing your eyes and mindfully visualizing the lotus in gentle closed position. img_7708

In doing this practice mindfully, you will become more alert to when you are being open and being at safe rest energetically.

The intention of this tool is not to close yourself off from feeling connected. In an ideal inner health state we want to always be connected. The intention is to have insight into when you are too open to the point of feeling like you are being overwhelmed with too much energy that is not in harmony with where you are at.

See the lotus at your crown open and close and open and close and open and close….

 

Practice with intention.

 

Blessings
