Aura Cleansing

In the ethereal realm everything is possible; it just takes a dash of visual intention and imagination to devise healing in your energetic field.

I found this video just an introduction to the practice of activelly cleansing your Aura a very simple and yet effective way to meditation and healing.

Inspiration

I though of placing this amazing talk of Dr Wayne Dyer in the ‘Guru in the hot chair’ category but having seen some of his videos, I have not questioning of his teachings for they resonate at a very deep level in my learning  journey. This along with his movie “the shift” are some of the most pleasant eye openers that I’ve found online and I am willing to quietly listen and fully attentively learn of his peaceful ways with his down to earth approach and his wise knowledge of the Tao.

He is the ultimate Zen guru of modern times and I am very happy to share this on my blog for whoever bumps into it; like I always say…

New Year’s Decorations…Feng Shui!

I became interested in Feng Shui as the concept of energy has become clearer to me in recent months, It just simply makes sense that if everything is energy in constant alive movement and flow, the effects and causes are reciprocal from inside out so in order to master a perfect flow or an always evolving state of balance and bliss, one has to learn how to achieve that this flow of energy within us and our environment runs as smoothly and harmonious as possible; from within, learning to clear the energy emanating from our chakra system which impacts our etheric state of being to the vibrational reflection in all the things and the nature that surround us. Like everyone else, I find areas that can be strong as well as areas that can be harmfully weak, I found that our environment and the way we arrange our spaces will reflect this state of being and in order to start working on those weak areas that affect our lives in ways we don’t always understand, work must be done inside but also outside of us. The universe provides energy charges and comforters that are available in plain nature, being plants, water, crystals and the energetic field of earth itself that most of us have grown to ignore.

It is in Feng Shui where answers regarding re arrangement of immediate environment are found as to how to use the elements and colours at our disposal to instigate positive changes, nothing at all new, an art and science that has been studied for thousands of years developed in China. The results I have yet to see but I will pay attention in the coming new year, it is always good to start a fresh and redecorate a little anyway so here I am sharing with you my findings:

Feng Shui;  It is a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure the health and good fortune for people inhabiting it.

Feng means wind and shui means water.

In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune, while bad feng shui means bad luck, or misfortune. Feng Shui is based on the Taoist vision and understanding of nature, particularly on the idea that the land is alive and filled with Chi, or energy. The ancient Chinese believed that the land’s energy could either make or break the kingdom, so to speak. The theories of yin and yang, as well as the five feng shui elements, are some of the basic aspects of a feng shui analysis that come from Taoism. •How To Get Started with Feng Shui The main tools used in a feng shui analysis are the Compass and the Ba-Gua:

The Ba-Gua  is an octagonal grid containing the symbols of the I Ching, the ancient oracle on which Feng Shui is based. Knowing the Bagua of your home will help you understand the connection of specific feng shui areas of your home to specific areas of your life. It is important to understand that there are several different schools of feng shui, as well as a strong culturally specific symbolic aspect of feng shui that you have to use intelligently. Once you master the basic level of feng shui, you will start seeing powerful results. You will also understand why feng shui is extensively used in both homes and offices all over the world. Feng Shui offers a variety of feng shui cures to improve your life. From the feng shui use of aquariums to attract prosperity to the feng shui use of crystals and fountains; from the right feng shui use of colors to the feng shui use of clocks, there are many ways you can improve the energy in your home or office with feng shui.  Just like traditional Chinese medicine, feng shui knowledge is deep and complex.

 

The following an easier way to understand the way that you can divide your house to implement the principles of Feng shui. You just hold the square map from the entrance of the house and divide your space in the 9 areas for elements and colours specified below and what they represent. For more specifics on how you do this, I recommend you visit experts in the subject and continue your research. It is plain and simple a matter of order and harmony; one thing I don’t recommend is to become obsessive and superstitious about it as things will flow with your instinct better than anything else so there is no need to become a trinket chinese collector; neither cast evil prejudgment on it, we have so much taboo in our Western cultures that is a pity knowledge like this tends to be regarded dark or cultic when in reality its emphasis is on anything but a positive approach to life in flow with the universe around us, unfortunately just like in my case, it is by hitting rock bottom that brings one to the awareness that you need more than mere luck and good intentions to have positive effects in your life, you need to be in the light of who you are, where are you living and how things can be aligned in to balance in a tangible physical way as well as mentally.

Have fun and Best of Luck!

The Chakra System by Carol Tuttle

“The point where each

dimension connects to

the physical is called a

chakra, a Sanskrit word.

There are seven centers

of life energy in the

human body counting

from a chakra at the base

of the spine to one at the

top of the head.”

Jose Silva, You The Healer,

pg. 173

Thanks to Carol Tuttler, here I am sharing the most practical and contemporary Chakra explanation I have found so far. It makes sense to identify the areas where our energies can go high or low in trying to pay attention to the weaknesses that can disturb our wholeness and well-being in order to overcome and grow in knowledge and balance. According to her, these areas called Chakras since eons, are at the core of what it means to us to be Strong or Weak.

I have not get into any of her programs so I am neutral as to how they work and don’t mean to recommend that you have to either… but just the mere definitions and explanations have help a great deal to define the areas for me to work on:

If your Root Chakra is STRONG you are in the state where you love your career and get rewarded for being so good at it. Everybody admires you for your uncanny ability to make, save and invest money. You always have more than enough money to go on holiday and buy what you want, without feeling guilty afterwards. You always feel wanted and loved by your friends and family, and you feel good about yourself when you look in the mirror, both physically and emotionally. If your Root Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED you tend to get stuck in an unfulfilling and unrewarding career, and you never seem to have enough money, which leaves you worried and in debt. Spending money is a harrowing experience for you, as you doubt your ability to budget effectively. You suffer from weight or body issues, which leave you feeling unworthy and uncomfortable in your own skin.

If your Sacral Chakra is STRONG, you see sex in a positive light, as a glorious, pleasurable and healthy activity. You enjoy passionate, frequent and long-lasting sex with your partner. Orgasms are mind-blowing, and you and your partner often orgasm at the same moment. You make time to have sex at least a few times a week, even if you’ve been married or attached to the same person for years. You are always able to attract the right partners; compatible people who nourish you, fill you with joy and make you a better person. If your Sacral Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED, images of guilt and pain conjures in your mind when you think about sex. You rarely have the time or inclination to have sex, and when you do, it’s lackluster. You and your partner rarely orgasm at the same time, and premature or delayed ejaculation may be a frequent problem. You struggle to see yourself as ‘sexy’, and sometimes wonder how anyone could desire you. Your partners are often wrong and incompatible for you, and you find yourself wondering if you’ll ever find “the one”.

If your Personal Power Chakra is STRONG, you are admired for your confidence and healthy self-esteem, both in your career and personal life. You’re never afraid to speak your mind, and you empower those around you to do the same. Your family, colleagues and community see you as a charismatic individual, determined to use your charisma and power for making the world a better place. If your Personal Power Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED you tend to struggle with self-esteem issues, and feelings of unworthiness. You tend to question yourself when faced with important decisions like whether to move to another city, change your career, get married to your partner or to have children. You feel like a victim in the world, and often feel powerless to circumstances and other people’s desires. You may also suffer from frequent stomach pains and stomach anxiety.

If your Heart Chakra is STRONG, you enjoy comfortable, loving and empathic relationships at home, at work and in your community. You get along with your family. Your friends see you as a reliable person. At work, you’re known as the one people can talk to. You feel a heartfelt sense of gratitude for how wonderful your life is, and feel compassion for all around you. If your Heart Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED, you tend to sabotage your relationships with distrust, anger, and a sense that you’ll lose your independence if you rely too much on others. You may struggle with commitment, experience frequent fights or misunderstandings with your loved ones, and always keep yourself “on guard” in case you get hurt by someone.

If your Throat Chakra is STRONG, you are good at voicing out your thoughts, ideas and emotions to those around you. You’re admired for your willpower and strong communication skills, and your conviction to speak the truth, even if it may be uncomfortable to some. Your career and personal life are enriched as a result. If your Throat Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED, you constantly feel like nobody cares about your opinions, and that you have nothing of value to say. You’re likely to be known as the ‘quiet one’ in your professional and social circles, and you frequently settle with following other people’s opinions. You often suffer from a blocked and sore throat.

If your Intuitive Chakra is STRONG, you are able to make accurate intuitive decisions and evaluations about your career, your family and the intentions of other people. You often know things without knowing exactly how you know them, and you have a clear sense of direction and clarity in everything that you do. You have a vivid picture of where your life is headed, and the people around you are likely to rely on you for guidance and advice. If your Intuitive Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED, you have the tendency to feel helpless or lost when faced with decisions and judgment calls. You are indecisive, uncommitted and unconfident of the decisions you end up making, because you have a history of making the wrong ones. You feel spiritually lost, and your true purpose is unclear to you. You often get headaches and feel tension in your brow area.

If your Crown Chakra is STRONG, you perpetually feel connected to a higher power, be it God, Universal Consciousness or simply your higher self. As you go through your daily life, you are always reminded that you are being watched over, and you feel immense gratitude for the universal love and appreciation you feel towards yourself and others. Others describe you as “glowing”. If your Crown Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED you tend to feel little or no connection to a higher power, and always feel alone. You feel unworthy of spiritual help, and perhaps even angry that your higher power has abandoned you. You often suffer from migraines and tension headaches.

Understanding Zen…

Meditating, on own conclusions from my research, I understand  Zen state as the ongoing act of conscious meditation; a life style of practicing to be. To be genuinely present and the exercise to continually try to master the abiding at the core center of our inner being in finding human balance; something like the Da Vinci famous yin-yan figure portraits.

Because of external effects that can bring so much imbalance in our lives through our on growing processes to master emotions and all sorts of human situations, vices, habits and our inherited character genes and preconceptions of spiritual and cultural nature, the constant tendency is to be deceived into abandoning that core center; that core of being real to ourselves and our world.

Zen found wisdom by eons, teaches us that we then have to meditate in being at the present moment whether focusing on our breath or our visual reception of what we perceive as real.

For me personally; I try to use visual and a ‘going on’ meditation. I wish I could sit still for hours with my eyes closed and concentrate on that blank mind but that level of focus I have to admit, I haven’t yet mastered. The alternative I have found useful to my dramatic and sometimes problematic environment is the striving tool of the every moment ongoing realization of my true presence and breath while doing everything else. I have also found out that by helping my mind with videos rich in visual transcendental information, I can relax and unlock my subconscious mind to connect with my universe, as I perceive it, from my cleared mind, at a subliminal deeper level; acknowledging as real as possible what and how I am feeling and reacting.

Here is a link by clicking on the picture to my Visual Meditation Blog wich is nothing else that a collection of videos that help me with the struggles within myself and my environment to achieve that desirable ZEN state of constant meditation and adjustment of balance.

Not that I have achieved it, not me out of all people, and I can be very wrong but I am still walking and learning to continually evolve despite much long-standing opposition and struggle to survive and love life. I guess we can never assume to achieve it completely because we fall or can fall of that Zen state balance at every single moment. The never-ending quest is therefore to continue! the reward is Peace… enjoy the videos.
