Watch those hands: sending energy healing

Lucy crystal classIs it ethical to send energy healing to a person or animal without their permission? This is a very sensitive topic for some healers. No matter where you look these days, you will encounter stories of people and animals who are suffering, hurt, in harms way or passing.

It is natural for a healer to want to send healing during times of suffering. This is a compassionate, empathetic response that is normal. Good intentions are admirable and much needed in this world. But it is important to look to your energy healing training on any ethical guidelines that you received. For most modalities, permission from the energy healing recipient is required. It is actually considered a violation of our ethical standards to send healing to anyone (person or animal) without permission. Why? A doctor, accountant, or other professional would not provide a service without permission, right? The same goes true for energy workers. But most important, the energy that you send could end up interfering with any healing work that they may already be doing and may not be in the person or animal’s highest good.

So how do you ask permission?

  • If the person is with you, just ask!
  • If the person is at a distance and you can contact them, ask for permission!
  • If the person is at a distance and you do not know them to ask permission, meditate and quiet your mind, look at their photo (if you have one) and mentally send them a question asking if they would welcome some healing energy. The first thing that comes to mind is their answer. If the answer is no, it must be respected. But you can certainly ask again another time.
  • If it is an animal that is with you, follow the same procedure above. Quiet yourself, sit with the animal, ask them (out loud or in your mind) if they would welcome healing. Listen for an intuitive answer or watch to see if they move towards you. If they move away or give a clear signal that they do not want healing, always respect it and stop. You can always try again later. Never ever force energy healing on an animal … that is absolutely an ethical no no!
  • If the animal is at a distance or you do not know, quiet your mind, focus on their photo (if you have one) and follow the same procedure above to see if you get an intuitive answer. Only if you get a signal to proceed should you offer healing.
  • If any any point you do not get a clear answer or are uncertain, be cautious and do not send healing.

In some modalities, such as Integrated Energy Therapy (an angelic healing), you can send healing without permission and the energy will be stored for the person or animal and when they are ready to receive it, that is when it will arrive for them. Permission for energy healing

We all want to help and it can be heartbreaking to watch others in pain. But we must avoid sending energy when it’s not welcomed. So before you activate that glorious healing, stop, ask permission, and only send if you receive a clear verbal, physical, or intuitive message to proceed.

Happy Healing!

How to keep your wits during travel

Lucy in suitcaseDo you love to travel for leisure? Do you work in a field that has you plane hopping more often than not? Do you feel energized or drained when flying on airplanes or tackling traffic? If you answered yes, keep reading!

In the past 8 weeks I have had 8 trips and have been on 22 airplanes! For someone who is energetically sensitive, especially in groups, that’s a lot of energy sharing with people on airplanes. I have traveled extensively over the past decade as I travel to conferences to provide trainings. In the past, I would become fatigued quickly, take weeks to have my energy bounce back, and most often would get sick from being on airplanes and/or having too much back-to-back travel. So although I have worked to reduce my travel over the past few years, this latest travel extravaganza had me concerned. But I did a few things differently and have maintained my energy and have stayed healthy!

So here are my 5 super simple tried-and-true techniques to keep your wits while you travel!

1.  One week before, during and one week after travel, use Young Living Thieves essential oil. This is a miracle oil. It is antiviral, antibacterial and anticootie! I used the oil two different ways: I placed one drop in a small glass of water and drank it twice a day (yes, you can drink these essential oils … do not do that with any other brand) and while on airplanes I would enjoy the Thieves lozenges. If you only try one of these techniques, this is the one!

2. Be careful about how you talk about travel because what you say will come true! I changed my thoughts about travel that I would stay healthy and energetic and stopped myself from saying anything about getting tired or sick. And it worked! Change the way you look at thing, and the things you look at change!

3. Travel is not a time to eat fast food or junk food. It is so important to eat energizing foods … live food (lots of fruits, veggies), drink a lot of water, and avoid alcohol and processed foods. I try to avoid airport food so I pack my own snacks (usually nuts and dried fruit) and I drink A LOT of water!

4. Travel with grounding crystals! I recommend taking small tumbled stones as it will avoid some odd looks from TSA. I always travel with crystals and love to sleep with them under my pillow. I made sure to pack crystals that would help me stay grounded. When you are in an airplane, you lose your grounding to Mother Earth. So the crystals that I packed were Black Tourmaline, Hematite and Malachite.

Mt. Rainer5. Most people who travel a lot want to get to the destination and get home as fast as possible. If you can, and if the location resonates with you, try to find a little time to connect to nature in the area. This is grounding. In two locations I arrived a little early and spent some time enjoying the area. I soaked in an outdoor hot mineral spring outside of Boise, ID and yesterday I drove as close to Mt. Rainer (outside of Seattle) as possible and spent some time in the cold mountain energy. (Check out my photo below standing in front of 15+ foot snow piles at the closest point to the Mt. Rainer summit!) Both of these activities gave me extreme grounding and connection to Earth which has helped me to maintain my health and peace of mind.

What you do before, during and after travel can make the difference between being sick and tired or being healthy and energized. Although I will be cutting back on travel, I am so thankful that I discovered simple methods to help keep me through this travel extravaganza. I would love to hear what works for you (or if these tips also work for you)!

Stay grounded!

When relationships change

Choosing FriendsHow do you handle change? Do you welcome it or try to ward it off? Whether we like it or not, if we are not changing, we are not growing. So change is necessary to evolve in life. Yet we handle change with our heels dug firmly in the ground as we are dragged to our next station in life. That is resistance and is not a great way to go through life, right?

Relationships of all forms are not immune to change and will go through ebbs and flows over time. These relationships include family, friends, romantic, coworkers and so on. And regardless of the bond, change will occur. Don’t worry … embrace it!

Some relationships that are short-lived and are meant to serve a specific purpose (usually to help us learn something). These can be any type of relationship and when the lesson is played out, the relationship fizzles. When the relationship fizzles, it often raises concerns about “what went wrong.” Usually when you look back on these relationships after some time has passed, you may realize that the person came into your life for a specific purpose that has been resolved. Recognizing that can help both to move on without hurt feelings. So when a romantic relationship or friendship ends, or a job is lost, I tend to focus (and help others focus) more on the lesson(s) learned as a positive form of change rather than focusing on the negativity of the ending.

Other relationships are deeper and are intended to last longer, yet will go through change over time. We often see this with our family, especially our parents, where the relationship often grows stronger over time. These relationships are long-term to help support us through life-long lessons. So we may find that change and the lessons happen numerous times over the course of the relationship.

With the continued change of the energies that surround us, you should expect that relationships in your life will also continue to change. As we go through an evolutionary upgrade in this shift, or if you are actively growing spiritually, you may notice that some relationships no longer have the same feel or some people simply drift away. So instead of being reduced into a pile of emotional dribble, here are some ideas to help you handle the change of relationships with greater ease:

  • When you meditate or have quiet time, focus on the lessons learned from the relationship rather than dwell on why the person has left or drifted away. It is easy to get caught up in the “why” when it is more important to focus on the “what” from the lessons learned. Consciously and deliberately shift your focus and you will process the change better.

Brandberg

  • The crystal that I have found works the best during times of change is the Brandberg crystal. These crystals have a very high vibration, help you to connect to Source, they are attuned to the white flame of pure consciousness, are a stone of compassion, and excellent for soul work and forgiveness. They are said to be the best tool for removing attachments in the energy field, and this can include past attachments from relationships. I recently picked up a supply of highly quality Brandbergs from a crystal show that are available for sale. This crystal is simply amazing whether you are an experienced crystal aficionado or new to crystals.
  • A couple of essential oils can help with changing relationships include: Young Living Acceptance, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Harmony, Transformation, and Ylang Ylang.
  • Journal your feelings to get them out and process them. Through writing, you will often find the message and lesson of what you need to learn when you go back after a few weeks or months and read your entries.
  • And lastly, stop yourself from dwelling on the changed/lost relationship and do not push the relationship to continue as it was. Focus on gratitude for the person and wish them well. Although you may struggle with this at first, in time it will be genuine. When you can release the attachment, you release the resistance. And when this happens you may find that you accept and understand the situation better, and the relationship may even transform into a newer and better situation.

Change does not have to be difficult or sad. It is important to deliberately decide that you will handle the change to understand the message and lessons from the relationship. When that happens, you will be amazed at how free and joyful you will feel. Then you will have gratitude for the relationship and can wish the former relationship love and light.

5 Tips for a Creativity Surge!

creativity

Do you consider yourself a creative person? Are you someone who is full of ideas, projects, imaginative stories, innovation? Or do you feel like a dull turnip unable to spew out anything original? Whether you feel like you score zero on the creative scale, or feel like you are temporarily in a creative slump and need a boost, these 5 tips are Allie-tested to super boost your creativity.
1.  Quiet your mind (hint: this is called meditation!). I know that you may cringe at this, but the number one sure-fire way to tap into your creative-self is to quiet your mind (daily) and let your inner self reveal creative ideas. I’m really serious about this … at least 10 minutes a day of quiet time will boost your creativity. Manifested Harmony came to me during a meditation; several programs that I created to help crime victims (that have gone national) came to me in meditation. It works!
2.  Journal your thoughts. When you can spend time daily (or even weekly) to write out your thoughts, you may find a jewel amongst the gibberish. Julia Cameron in The Writer’s Way suggests 3 pages of hand written notes every day to get the creative juices flowing. I’ve done this and it works! It’s amazing to go back weeks or months later and read what you have written. What may have seemed nonsensical at the time may now shine through with innovation!

Creativity grid3.  Grab some creativity crystals. These are my super-powered creativity crystals (as seen in the photo): Amethyst, Carnelian, Tangerine Quartz, Rhodochrosite, Citrine, Dumorterite. Also consider Orange Calcite, Crocoite, Yellow Flourite, . But beware … these worked so well and so fast for me, I had to take down the grid because I was overwhelmed with surges of creativity!

4.  Spend time opening and balancing your Third Eye Chakra. Your third eye is the seat of your intuition. When you are fully engaged with your intuitive self, you will receive unimaginable guidance. This comes through as ideas, insights, flashes, and messages. But the trick to tapping into your intuition is to NOT second-guess those ideas, insights, flashes and messages; it’s about trusting what literally pops into your mind. Journal these ideas to keep track of them. To balance your Third Eye, place crystals that are dark blue or purple in color on your forehead. Also, Young Living Awaken and Transformation essential oils are fantastic for rubbing directly on your forehead to open the Third Eye Chakra.

5.  And lastly, make sure that your Sacral Chakra is in balance. The Sacral Chakra, two inches below your belly button, is where you creativity center is located. If you are experiencing digestive, intestinal or lower organ issues, this is a physical sign that your creativity is out of balance. Place orange colored crystals on your abdomen and eat foods that are orange or red in color to help stimulate your Sacral Chakra.

As humans we are meant to be creative beings; without creativity, the evolution of our planet comes to a screeching halt. Creativity comes in many different forms. So what creativity are you meant to show to the world?

I got a new crystal, now what?

Getting to know my new Red Stellar Beam Calcite!
Getting to know my new Red Stellar Beam Calcite!

Congratulations on bringing a new crystal in to your life! If you are new to crystals, saw one and thought it was really pretty/unique, but are not sure what to do with it, I would like to share a few suggestions to help you get to know your crystal.

1.  Cleanse your crystal. This helps to eliminate any energies that may have attached to the crystal. There are a variety of ways to do this, but the two easiest methods are (a) to place the crystal under running water (only if the crystal has a Mohs hardness of 6 or higher and is not fragile) for several minutes or (b) place the crystal on a bed of sea salt for 24 hours. To determine the Mohs hardness of a crystal, check out www.gemdat.org.

2. If you have a crystal book, you could look up information about the crystal, such as the spiritual qualities and energies, the physical makeup (such as the crystal system), and where it likely originated from. Books that are good to start with are The Crystal Bible, The Book of Stonesand The Crystal Healer

3. Sit quietly with your crystal, breathe deeply and hold your crystal in either hand (see which hands picks up a tingly vibration from the crystal and use that hand). You can also hold the crystal to your heart or to your forehead (your third eye) to tap into intuition. You can either just let the crystal send information to you, or you can feel the physical qualities, or you can ask the crystal to tell you what it wants to convey to you. I recommend doing this once a day, every day, until you feel that you have connected to the crystal.

4. Place the crystal under your pillow (so long as it is not fragile or too big), or on your nightstand. I like to place tumbled crystals in an organza bag for placement under the pillow. Even when I travel, I always have crystals with me, especially as I sleep. By having the crystal near you at night, you will soak in the crystal’s energies and information while you sleep. You may awake to have information, answers and guidance, or simply feel more refreshed.

5. After you connect to your crystal, be sure to work with it whenever needs or issues arise that the crystal can uniquely assist with. Holding it, laying it on you, having it out in your home are all simple ways to work with the crystal.

6. Do your best to not ignore a crystal; they love to work with us to help. As you grow a larger collection of crystals, though, it may be difficult to spend time with each crystal. What I like to do is place as many crystals throughout my home so that they are sharing their energies openly.

storage boxes7. If you plan to store your crystal, try to place it in a natural container (wood, natural cloth).

8. Crystals love the full sun and full moon, so consider putting them outdoors or on a window ledge to soak up the sun and moon’s energies.

I hope these simple steps will help you get to know your crystal. No matter how many crystals I bring home (and I bring home A LOT of crystals!!!!), I always spend time with each of them to introduce myself and allow the crystal to introduce itself to me. I also let my cats say hello to the new crystals.

Enjoy your crystal!
