World Kindness Day encourages us to be kind to others, helping to create a nicer, better world. According to the World Kindness Movement website, World Kindness Day is intended to "build a kinder and more compassionate world". Use today as an opportunity to be kind to family, friends, neighbors, and others. You will find kindness rubs off on others, and generates even more kindness.
Origin of World Kindness Day: World Kindness Day evolved from a series of conferences in 1996-1997 in Japan by a group known as the World Kindness Movement. These conferences brought together groups interested in promoting more kindness around the world. It culminated in the "Declaration of Kindness" on November 13,1997. With this declaration, a new and very special day was born.
Everybody has the potential to change the world. We can tell you’re someone who wants to seize that potential. You’re a RAKtivist® you just didn’t know it until now. RAKtivists are the heroes of our organization. They live and breathe kindness, share knowledge and lead by example. You can tell where they’ve been because they leave a trail of warmand-fuzzy feelings in their wake.
WHAT IS A RAKTIVIST? ‘RAKtivist’ is short for ‘Random Acts of Kindness activist’. Think of RAKtivists like kindness ambassadors—and, like all ambassadors, they’re a part of an active, global community. RAKtivists are everywhere. The student who stops to hold the door open for a teacher with her hands full? That person is a RAKtivist. The commuter who offers their bus seat to an elderly passenger? That person is a RAKtivist too. The parking attendant who leaves a note on someone’s car, complimenting their parking skills? You guessed it: RAKtivist. Anyone who believes kindness can change the world, who reminds everyone around them how much love there is in the world, who inspires hope and generosity with their actions as much as their words—they’re a RAKtivist.

The experience of falling in love is altogether reminiscent of what in quantum physics is known as entanglement. In the microscopic realm once two particles experience a shared state, they are no longer separate entities but exist as one. This remains true even when they are separated by a great distance. The falling part of the falling in love process requires a falling away of many individual boundaries as the two people merge significant parts of themselves. The coupling moves the two individuals into an entangled sense of oneness. All living beings are energy fields manifesting through their physical form. Mere physical attraction to another is based on sensory stimulation, but being in lust is not quite the same as being in love. Falling in love requires that our energies coalesce with one another. When this occurs, our energy field resonates with our partner’s energy field, and our vibrations harmonize with each other’s, so that two individuals are no longer distinctly separate. This energetic interchange happens simultaneously on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels, and it is what makes falling in love— and staying in love—potentially the most fulfilling experience in life. Over the course of time, however, many people indicate that although they may still love the other, they no longer feel in love. There’s a common belief that as the years pass, falling out of love is natural and to be expected. I’d suggest that it may be ordinary, but that doesn’t make it natural. Falling in love and sustaining it requires maintaining a sense of oneness. In the turmoil we experience when a relationship becomes adversarial, we need to acknowledge or change something to shift the energy away from separation and back toward entangled wholeness. Making that shift may mean changing our beliefs, our perceptions, or our behaviors or possibly all of these. You might ask yourself, “What is my partner seeing in me that I don’t see in myself?” If you set out to reenter the energy field of the initial romantic entanglement or the caring friendship, you can selflessly try to get in the other’s shoes. This is an exercise in empathy. Doing this doesn’t mean you are abandoning your position; it simply means loving and validating your partner. If I try to appreciate and care about my upset partner’s point of view, I’m invoking a shift of energy. Connecting empathetically with our partner is the most powerful thing we can do in such troubled moments. It can turn the tide from a competitive, maybe even emotionally and verbally abusive, exchange back into a loving energy field once again entangled with caring. (If you try this approach consistently and with genuine affection, but your partner doesn’t reciprocate over time, you might well consider whether the relationship is right for you.) Another way of shifting the energy of a relationship is to express positive feelings or appreciation for your partner. Once a couple’s energy has drifted into separatism and conflict, they may default to unloading critical thoughts and feelings with each other. Negativity then fills the divide they have structured. Yet there are times in therapy when individuals may share with me positive or appreciative feelings they experienced about their partner. When I ask, “Did you share that with your partner?” I rarely hear a yes. Why would we become acclimatized to sharing the negative, yet feel awkward or reluctant to express approving or positive feelings? It’s because we’ve gotten stuck in the groove of negativity, which only widens that gap between us. We may be holding back an expression of approval so as not to give the other a stronger hand—a sign that we have set up separate battle stations. So set your intention: when you feel good about the other person, articulate it to him or her. Page | 6
In trying to reset the downward spiral of the relationship cycle, it may be helpful to pause and not be reactive. Take a moment before criticizing or defending and ask yourself, “Does this really matter?” If it doesn’t, you can choose to let it go and create a very different reality. Again, this is an energy shifter. The common expression “You can’t change the other person” appears sensible when a relationship is in turmoil. But from the quantum view of inseparability, if you change some aspect of yourself, it will necessarily affect your partner, because you’re both as connected as our quantum particles.

This past week I was blessed to be part of a mini-retreat here in Rochester, NY with my friend Sarah St. Claire. Sarah has devoted her life to sharing the message of peace, love and forgiveness based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles. After our group gathering, I spent some one-on-one time with Sarah. We talked about many things- how I was inspired to start the nonprofit (Coaching for Inner Peace) and the work I was currently doing, as well as about parenting my son as a single mom, and so on and so forth. Sarah then posed a question to me that left me speechless — and amazed at my being speechless. As someone who loves to write and communicate, I am rarely speechless. “How is the nonprofit serving you?” she asked. Now, I could list countless ways that nonprofit was serving others- the coaching, the newsletters, the website, the online courses and so on and so forth. Yet as I approached the two-year anniversary of Coaching for Inner Peace, at some level I was ready for Sarah’s question. What began as a creative venture filled with joy, love and passion over the past several months had begun to feel, well, somewhat heavy. The marketing. The trying to keep up with social media. Financial concerns and so on and so forth. How was the nonprofit organization that I created from a space of joy, love and passion serving me in the NOW? True service includes everyone I know that many of you reading this are healers, therapists, doctors, parents, caretakers or helpers of some sort. So, I know that we all love to serve. And we are so generous in our serving. Yet how does this service serve us? It may seem to be a selfish question. Aren’t we here to be of service? Is that not a noble reason and purpose for life? Of course, it is! Yet I feel that Sarah with gentleness, yet firmness was guiding me to a deeper realization. She offered an invitation to Include myself in this service. Serve so that you are also served. Share so that you are also nurtured and nourished in the process. Do not exclude yourself from this service because in doing so you become the unhealed healer. And in my career in medicine, I am very familiar with the experience of burnout that can occur when we do this to ourselves. And this is also key. We truly do do this to ourselves. By not allowing ourselves to be included in this beautiful Circle of Love and Light that we offer so generously to all our clients and loved ones. We may ignore the small tell-tale signs of not serving ourselves- a little irritation, fatigue, lack of joy, not feeling inspired yet still ‘pushing through’ the task, or the day- or maybe even our lives. In my experience, this ‘not including’ ourselves may even create symptoms of illness in our Page | 8
body. Pain, distress, dis-ease – all can come from this space of not honoring ourselves as an essential part of the Circle of Healing. Follow your bliss After Sarah left, I found myself reflecting on Joseph Campbell’s famous teaching that he shared with all of his students: Follow your bliss. Follow your joy. Follow the road that feels light, loving, peaceful, joyous and leads you inward to the Truth of you. The Place of Light and Love that we all know at our core we truly are. The thing is that you cannot help but be of true service when you are following your bliss. It is like falling in love and being lit up from the inside. You just naturally exude the love wherever you go. Like fragrance from a flower. I am willing to see service differently Sarah’s gentle reminder has allowed me to give myself permission to even look at my blog in a different way. I want to continue to write and share – but as inspired. It is important that what I am sharing truly nourishes me as it is shared with each of you. I am also looking at my parenting, and at all my relationships in this way. How can I allow this relationship or whatever situation is before me to serve me – as I serve the one before me? It could mean saying no at times. Or postponing a meeting or event that ‘could be helpful’ but I feel I just don’t have the inner resources to participate. Letting myself rest. Play in the kitchen and create a new recipe. And even take a nap. And of course, watch a favorite Bollywood movie. I invite you to join in allowing yourself to be nourished, nurtured and loved as you extend this to all those around you. In the end, the Beloved in you and the Beloved in me and the Beloved in all others are not different. We are all the Beloved and truly worthy of basking in the Love we share and extend so freely! An invitation for some self-reflection As a student of A Course in Miracles, I know that ultimately when I heal, I am not healed alone. What I experience is shared with everyone- near and far. And ACIM also teaches that to heal is to make happy. So why not start with choosing happiness for ourselves first and then allow this to ripple outwards to all the lives we touch? What would that look like for you- if you were following your joy, your happiness, your bliss? How would you show up in life differently? What activities and meetings would you include in your life?
What activities and meetings would you let go of- not because they were not helpful- but they just no longer served you? We heal together From across distance and time, I join with each of you as we give ourselves permission to choose happiness over obligation, joy over pain, and freedom over bondage. It may not even look like we do anything differently in our actionsjust that we show up consciously- knowing that we made this choice and we can choose differently- whenever we want. The choice is truly ours- to live a life of service to everyone, including ourselves. About Seema: Seema Khaneja MD graduated from the Mt.

THREE WAYS TO CREATE SACRED SPACE AT WORK http://www.drjudithorloff.com You must be comfortable in your work environment to feel healthy and happy. A workplace that suits your temperament and is energetically nourishing can inspire you. It also puts you in a creative zone and boosts your energy and passion. On the other hand, a negative work environment can suck the life out of you and trigger a cascade of emotional and physical symptoms in response to stress, lack of downtime, and emotional overload. This is especially true for empaths or sensitive people who thrive in the right type of work and environment Since we’re typically at work for many hours, it’s crucial to feel at ease there most of the time. Three major factors play a role in your comfort level: the meaning you get from your job, the energy of the physical space, and the energy of the people around you. See where you currently stand with these factors and begin to envision how you might improve your situation. Every building, every office, every stairwell has a subtle energy of its own. Some spaces feel uplifting; others don’t. I suggest that you tune into the energy of your workplace to make sure it feels right. Sometimes there is leftover energy from previous occupants which may be positive or negative. If the energy feels off here are 3 ways you can shift the negativity from my book, "The Empath’s Survival Guide": 1. Purify the energy of your workplace You can purify the air by spraying rose water in the room. (Burning sage, though a good idea, might set off smoke alarms and disturb coworkers who don’t know about energetic cleansing rituals and may be uncomfortable with them.) Also, you or a group can meditate in the location to infuse it with heart energy which removes any negativity or stagnant feeling. In addition, you can enlist the help of a Feng Shui expert, who specializes in creating a harmonious environment by optimizing the energy of a space through the placement of furniture, plants, mirrors, and objects. 2. Set healthy energetic boundaries. If you are in an open space or chaotic office, surround the outer edge of your desk with plants or family and pet photos to create a small psychological barrier. Also sacred objects such as a Quan Yin statue (goddess of compassion), the Buddha, sacred beads, crystals, or protective stones can also set an energetic boundary. Also take bathroom breaks for relief, or walk outside in fresh air if possible. Noise cancelling ear buds or headphones re useful to muffle conversations and sound. In addition, visualize a luminous golden egg of light surrounding your entire work station that repels negativity and only lets in positive energy. You are safe and protected within the golden egg. There is nothing to worry about. Using all of these strategies creates a cocoon of protection to rely on. 3. Learn to cope with draining people Page | 15
The energy of people in a workplace strongly affects how a setting feels. Negative people generate negative energy. Positive people generate positive energy. Your co-workers, bosses, and colleagues can make or break your comfort level in a job. Sensitive people in particular have a lower threshold for noise, conflict, office politics, feuds, and back-biting. The drama at work, which might simply disturb someone else, can drain empaths and make them anxious. In chapter 5 of “The Empath’s Survival Guide" I discuss various types of vampires include narcissists, rage-aholics, victims, passive aggressive people, chronic talkers, and drama queens or kings. I have one patient who advises, “I survive by just doing my job and walking away from anyone who wants a pity party, drama, or is a backstabber or complainer.” Learn strategies to cope with these types of draining people and apply protection strategies such as setting boundaries, shielding, and meditation. Though you can’t control everything about your job environment, you do have the power to shift the energy in your immediate vicinity. If you focus on the safe space you’ve created rather than on the surrounding noise and confusion, you can minimize emotional contagion. Then your work experience will feel more pleasant and protected.

Eyes now wide as night's arising Twilight's eye no longer shining Oh Northern Lights, so mesmerizing
Shooting stars, all bright and gleaming The incandescence leaves us dreaming Wishing we're no-time-soon leaving
Upon starry nights, one does ponder Myths and facts both make the mind wander What can never be known lies far beyond yonder

Lemurian Sisterhood®, from a time long, long ago, comes forward once again creating sacred communities of women worldwide. Awakening our innate leadership, healing abilities and energy work. Our Ancient Pleiadian Star Mothers are sending messages to Women across the globe, helping us tap into our Akashic records. Reminding us of our Divine Feminine presence, urging us to bring polarity (balance of divine feminine and masculine) to our sacred home (earth) and a unity with One (our Divine Creator). Lemuria, Or Mu (The Hawaiian Islands) Held an ancient civilization of Men and Women that lived in a state of High Spirituality. Women, before the fall of mankind, were highly sacred and honored for their ability to bring balance to Gaia, or Mother Earth. Our Gatherings, or Sacred Circles brought magic, healing, leadership and a sense of balanced energy to our civilization that helped the Men of our Tribe thrive in all aspects of their being. Creating Harmony, fruitfulness and full bounty of all our human and spiritual needs. Today, Amber Mele’Ha Wolf and Kryon (channeled by Lee Carroll) bring an awakening and remembrance of our Ancient ways. With the New Energy supporting a higher Spiritual self, we now have the ability to tap into our Akash and Connect with the ancient wisdom of the Lemurian Civilization. Women are called to honor their Divine Feminine Essence and recreate the Sacred Circles from lifetimes ago. These magic Circles create community and help awaken the energy of the Sisterhood – a field of energy that connects all women as Sacred Sisters. From each one of us a Goddess Grid is growing. Through the Help of Mele’Ha and Kryon, Sacred Circles are forming across the Globe, and we are blessed to announce a Chapter in Rochester NY. The Lemurian Sisterhood® Roc Division of WNY is hosted by WhiteDove Healing owner Rev. Sheila B. Tillch B.Msc, and co-hosted By Heather Holley-Barnett. Kryon (Channeled by Lee Carroll) Best Explains The Lemurian Sisterhood® Sacred Circle meetings. You carry within you the seeds of the Pleiadians, and it changed your DNA. What you carry here is the tradition of the Seven Sisters. You are old souls and have come to this meeting now rekindling some old memories because you feel it deep within. What you're going to do this evening as you gather around is all about re-birthing the energy of Earth. What you do in this meeting will affect you many years from now, and even affect your next incarnation. I want you to think about the concept of limitless. Emulating the sweet spirit of the feminine of the planet is the secret to peace on Earth. The planet is steering its course in consciousness to be more mother-like. Never has there been a time in history where your female gender is more important then now. The marker has been passed, and the new calendars are being prepared. It's time to remember and resurrect the sacred balancing methods of the past, and push them into the future. Priestesses, arise---KRYON 2013. The Lemurian Sisterhood® meets monthly, as close to the new moon as possible, and often on the solstices. All Sacred Women are welcome to join in celebration of our divine feminine, bringing healing and balance to our sacred earth.

Words of Gratitude
Today, the words came to me Wrapped in their exclusive finery Ready to take me with them On a tour of the unknown alleys Of my heart, not visited by me Each word is a guide, leading me Towards the core of gratitude Being an avid traveler I was yet to take this journey With childlike glee I read each word Feelings which lay unexpressed Were touched by the magic message Like each new day brings fresh hope Each word spoke with such grace The roots of joy are rejuvenated And springs to blossom eternally To greet me with varied colors Of happiness, gratitude and hope Living each day in wonder Soft morning light ushers new day Gratitude in my prayer Before I start a brand new day

I am realizing each day that every day is a new place on my journey. There is always something new to discover and become aware of. As I move from one space and place into another, if I remain present, I will see something I had not seen before. I will see and am seeing different aspects of the same scene. I remember one evening driving home on the expressway I noticed the most beautiful sunset with clouds surrounding rays of the sun. It was simply amazing. I wanted to stop and get a picture but could not pull over at that point of beauty. I decided to pull off the next exit. I did not realize that I had lost that particular point of beauty until I was able to stop to get the picture. That is when it hit me that the particular place of beauty I saw a mile before was different from this point of beauty I now found on the same road. Not only had my location perspective change, but the clouds and the sun had changed in perspective as well. The moment, the sky, the location and my feelings about it had all totally changed. I knew I would never see that moment, that sky or the view of the sunset ever again exactly the same way. So it is with life. Each moment that passes is a separate, different moment unto itself. If I am not present at that moment, it is impossible to recreate it again. Even if I do what I just did all over again, it will still be different. What I am learning from this is that time changes everything, even those things that appear to be the same. It is impossible to hold time or repeat time. This same time also changes us or as some may say, we change with time. Just as that sunset changed with time, so do we. It does not mean we are no longer beautiful, we just become and show a different aspect of ourselves and/or our beauty. I am coming to see myself and my life in different aspects of who I am. Time has a way of presenting aspects and views of what might appear to be the same situation, personality, and understanding. I believe this is part of the discovery of self. I think it is about taking the time to be present and looking at the same self from different angles at different points in time. I believe we expand ourselves as we add knowledge, grow in perspectives, and seek greater understanding of self. I believe that part of self-discovery is becoming aware and being present in more of the moments in our own lives where we can see who we truly are. I believe being aware of our thoughts and listening to our own beliefs and perspectives is a way to discover who we truly are. My self-discovery journey is becoming a journey of self-awareness. It is a journey of listening to me, the internal me that is the true self. As I listen and spend time with myself, I begin to see different aspects of myself. Some of them are amazing and some not so much. Some beliefs are being modified and adjusted. Some old beliefs are being abandoned. Some things are becoming clearer and some things require being put on the back burner for now. Page | 21
I am finding that there are some core aspects and beliefs that have not changed much as I observe who I am. These beliefs are important to me. Paul Selig states in his book “the Book of Mastery: The Mastery Trilogy: Book 1” an affirmation that has hit home with me and speaks to my inner being in a profound way. He states “I know who I am, I know what I am, I know how I serve, I am here, I am here, I am here.” The journey to self-discovery is really my journey to self-awareness. I realize it is personal as each journey is. I am grateful to come to this knowing of who I am, what I am and how I serve. “I am here, I am here, I am here.” Love, Rebecca About Rebecca: I am Rebecca Washington. I have not always appreciated myself, my gifts, talents, intellect, internal or external beauty that I possess. The lack of appreciation and acknowledgement has been reflected in how I think the world sees me. But the world can only see what I show it and allow it to see. Casting all of that behind me, I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements brought me to this: "Love, Rebecca."

This morning I awoke with Mother Mary holding my face and looking deeply into my eyes. The feeling I experienced as I awoke from sleep was one of being held, accepted as I was and embraced by love. I wanted to share this soft peaceful energy with everyone I know. I started bringing people’s faces to my mind and realized there were so many faces I have touched over the years just by sharing space and existence with them. I let myself have this wonderful gift from Mary and knew I represented all of humanity receiving it. I have been having some breakthroughs over the past few years where everything I look at seems beautiful and precious! The algae on the deck, the spider webs on the chimenea, the shape of my hand, the eyes of a stranger and all sorts of everyday scenes fill me with bursts of bliss. These bliss bubbles don’t last forever in my world. My mind will start its chatter about what is wrong here and horrible to witness or disgusting about human life including me. I let it run its course knowing that another bliss experience is right around the corner. I have learned not to identify with either state of awareness be it bliss or tension from judgement, but rather with the Divine aspect of my being that allows for both. Of course, I prefer the bliss but something about me yearns for a deeper, richer more varied life to express itself through me. Often I have a feeling of “Wow! Something really good is happening right now!” This can last for hours and fills me with pleasure and hope. If you are suffering now in your life, I invite you to resonate with me through my words and intentions. If you are also experiencing an abundance of good feelings, I encourage you to stay the course. By feeling good, you are helping far more people than you know! When you help yourself, it effortlessly goes out to all. Be joyful and know that All Is Well!

Once upon a time, I was a very frustrated and unhappy little girl who grew up to be a very frustrated and unhappy young woman. I was sensitive, imaginative and became very good at focusing on everything that felt wrong. When I felt something had happened that was unfair I rehashed it over and over in technicolor. I would tell anyone who would listen, and especially retell what had happened to myself. The stories grew stronger and bigger and more powerful and more convincing as to why I felt wronged. More things I thought were unfair happened, then more, and they became worse. My sadness and frustration grew. Until it reached a point where I had no choice but to LET GO. Resentment. I never thought of myself as a resentful person. But the definition of resentment is to be really upset and to feel it over and over again. I justified revisiting this deep feeling and these happenings as declaring what was unfair to gain sympathy and to justify the level of my upset. How could THAT happen to ME? And why would HE treat me like THAT? Why did THEY ? In retelling these stories and re-feeling them over and over, I was not only perpetuating my position as a victim, but I was creating more chaos in what I considered my newly enlightened existence. I was still indeed a resentful person, feeling my perceived injustices over and over again. And that consistent focus upon all that seemed wrong brought even more to me that seemed wrong and which I definitely did not want. I began to understand how my focus upon that old sad story kept me in a loop of attracting more of the same. So I decided to stop telling the old story. I had a lot of practice telling it and the habits went deep, so it was easier said, but I started as best I could. If an old memory was triggered, I might last a minute before I caught my mind starting to revisit things. Gently, slowly, I would bring my attention to NOW, to this moment. To the sunshine or to the chair I was sitting in or to a song on the radio. This is when I really began learning to be very patient with myself. It felt as if I was beginning to parent myself, or perhaps my Inner Being was parenting me and I could finally begin to hear it. I would catch a thought again then coax my mind to come over here instead and to appreciate something, anything right here and now. Anything to distract my focus to NOW. In the beginning it was challenging to change. New connective patterns in our brains must develop to create a new pathway for any new habit to become established. But I steadily persisted and changed the channel back to this moment whenever I felt myself looking backwards with negative feeling. It didnâ€™t really feel as if anything different was happening at first, or for a while. It was like watching grass grow. Some of the heaviness and the closeness of the past seemed to lighten and fall away. I felt happier, sillier and more hopeful. Most notably I realized the people, situations and things that began showing up in my life were calm and easy and nice. My home became more peaceful. My life became more steady. Work became more consistent and things that used to rock my boat just didnâ€™t. Not only was I feeling lighter and more at ease, I also began to feel stronger. I was experiencing how a shift in our focus completely changes our experience and can empower us. By dropping our old painful stories and consciously agreeing to tell a new one, focusing only on now and forward and the best of both, is the most powerful process I know to help turn our focus towards mindfulness and toward feeling happy, content and powerful. It has changed my life from one that felt like it happened TO me into a life I know I have the power in creating. So here is my new story: Page | 24

Realizing the dynamic Universal Laws, the first being that there is only one Absolute Source, which is SAT CHIT ANANDA, (true consciousness is bliss,) then there must also be only one source of Truth. However, in our modern society, we are constantly bombarded with multiple versions and ideas of what others present as truth. For many, having to process too much information, too much discrepancy in valid presentations of what the truth might be, it is easy to for one’s mind to fluctuate as the rational mind attempts to sort through an endless stream of presented facts. Because most of us have broader access to information, it is now too easy to become lost in the whirlpool of conflicting presentations of what the truth might be. Most of us are soul seekers, and we want access to accurate information so we can make choices that are aligned with our belief systems. We want to do good, we want to act in kindness, we want to help others when help is needed. Yet, we have become cynical, cautious and careful bystanders over the past decade or so, since the information age has allowed us to become witnesses to false information in the form of on-line scams, fake news, and fear based selling techniques created to inspire us to purchase items or info-courses that might help us prevail. I say, “Enough already!” Calm yourself, come to stillness, and remember that the only potentiality of authentic Truth is bliss. By the way, Bliss is not available for purchase, even though clever advertising campaigns try to get you to believe that. So, when you find yourself feeling anxious, undecided upon the right course of action, or find yourself too overwhelmed to make any choice at all, pause. Come to stillness, and remember that authentic Truth is a power of Nature, by which the only potentiality is perfect bliss.
Allow me to further explain: Truth is a Power As a force of nature, Truth only has one direction, which is a direct path leading to Absolute, Pure, Perfect Consciousness. Therefore, as you contemplate your choice of action while wishing to be in alignment with Absolute Truth, realize that your action must always involve the highest possible Good. Your choices must involve loving-kindness and peaceful activism. If your choice of action allows you to gain, while others may suffer, you have stepped away from your own divine nature, set the Laws of Cause and Effect into motion, and more pain and suffering will surely come. The Yoga Sciences and philosophies teach us that once we engage in action with our own benefit in mind, we have lost connection with the only true reality. These types of choices may bring temporary bliss or peace of mind, but soon any acquired gain will become lost inside a new condition of pain and suffering. Learn to Accept current conditions as they are. Page | 26
Accepting your current experience of reality, places you on the path of authentic Truth. If you are feeling angry, frustrated, overwhelmed, anxious, sad…etc, accept those conditions. Realize that these emotional experiences are Teachers, and inside the emotion, once explored, you will find what the Truth of the matter, is. As such emotions present themselves, don’t change them, don’t distract yourself from them. Instead, pause, realize them, and thank them. (Trust me on this!) Thank them, because you know underneath a clear presentation of the Truth exists. Sit with the emotion, accept it, thank it, and then declare, “I choose Truth!” Make this statement, loud and clear. Allow yourself to FEEL the power of choosing Truth. This action also invokes the Law of Cause and Effect, because if you seek Truth, and are certain that a perfect Truth can be known, through synchronicity, Truth MUST come. You will come to know perfect clarity, once you commit yourself to fully accepting what the Truth might be. Practice compassion with yourself, and offer it others, always. Responding to any pain and suffering you may be experiencing with wisdom, love, and integrity allows you to reach a higher place of wisdom within. Additionally, practicing compassion for yourself, allows you to offer to others as well, even our perceived enemies. Seeking authentic Truth is a daily practice. Gandhi called the power of Truth, “Satyagraha,” which translates to mean adherence to truth. The practice involves a willingness to modify one’s belief patterns while a compassionate mindset develops over time. Truth is force of power that is abundantly found inside a peaceful and calm mind. This state of consciousness provides a level of clarity that will effortlessly and always guide your mind to set good intentions, and act from a level of honesty that is fueled with an inner power of unwaivering confidence. Authentic Truth opens the heart, and liberates us from experiencing fear, hatred, or greed that would normally engage us to act with revenge, or intolerance. Truth is the only power that makes reconciliation and forgiveness possible. Holding yourself in compassion as you grow into this wisdom is a form of peaceful activism. Additionally, learning to remain steady in the mind, while witnessing others act with no regard for the truth is also peaceful activism. Our actions will speak much louder that words.
Believe in the Truth, by trusting Truth. Stay steady. Have compassion for yourself as you grow, and have compassion for others, knowing that they will learn. Authentic truth always presents itself when we allow “space” for it to become known. Truth is the only power that reconciles the desires of the rational mind with the potentiality of our perfect inner wisdom, which is the path to the authentic Truth of SAT CHIT ANANADA. ~May all choose the Power of Truth About Melinda: About Buddhi Institute: The Buddhi Institute offers you a vast array of opportunities to deepen your well-being and/or spiritual practice so you may learn how to cultivate your own inner guidance.

Choosing where we place our intention and focus is crucial for taking the next step in our holistic practice. Continued essential oils education and monthly Zyto Assessments is a primary wellness practice for our family. Let us take you there…. The Essential Oils Experience As essential oils become more popular, hundreds of companies are springing up globally and mainstream marketing. How did my family learn about the oils? It was during our loved one’s life threatening illness in 2005 that we discovered the oils. We decided to attend a few local classes. We were looking for products that could guarantee purity and sustainability for our food and nutrition, personal care products, dietary supplements and household cleaning. The experience of inhaling peppermint oil in one of the was invigorating and a breath of fresh air that sustained us throughout the rest of the day. We found what we were looking for in Young Living. We purchased the Premium Starter kit (PSK) that includes eleven essential oils, a cool mist diffuser and educational resources. [For product information see the Mille Grazia Website: www.oilingforglobalwealth.com . ] An Everyday Collection PSK totals the eleven oils to get started with for aromatherapy, dietary, and topical use. With improved wellness and vitality, it was not long before people asked us how to purchase essential oils. The commitment made twelve years ago to live a natural lifestyle continues to be part of our family’s routine from the time we wake until the time we go to sleep. There are many rewards while enjoying the benefits from oiling with the very best natural products. We join millions of other oilers trusting and believing these are ‘the best oils on the planet’ since we began using them in 2008. Not all oils are the same. Do you know about companies adulterating and adding fillers to their oils? Young Living is a pioneer in modern day essential oils and has been in business for over twenty-three years. A company that stands by their Seed to Seal® process, “ As the leaders of the modern essential oils movement and a close partner with the earth, it’s part of our stewardship to do business responsibly—from sustainably sourcing rare botanicals, to uplifting local communities, to going above and beyond to cooperate with local governments. Young Living’s mission and commitment is to offer a pure product that you know is part of a greater good.” Learn to read essential oil labels We invite you to attend our classes at Mythic Treasures at Village Gate in Rochester, NY. Class offerings include Essential Oils 101, Toxic Free Living with Legendary Botanicals and many other classes. Check the calendar: www.mythictreasuers.com . In a class you will experience how a pure essential oil can benefit you, your family and pets, and how to use oil-infused products including using them for household cleaning. Page | 29
You may also ask,
How do I know which oils and supplements are best for me? Have you ever stood in a store isle reading labels and trying to figure out what to choose? There is a way to stop guessing. Itâ€™s called the Zyto Compass Assessment. Zyto Compass Wellness Scanner â€“ Stop Guessing! Mille Grazia offers the Zyto Compass that is the original wellness scanner. Young Living has over 450 products including essential oils, and nutritional supplements. The Zyto Scan has made a big impact in our lives. In the most basic terms, ZYTO technology uses quantum physics as well as established Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) technology to measure fluctuations in electrical conductivity of the skin. Why use the Zyto Scanner? We use essential oils with several applications throughout day. No two bodies are same! Each member of my family responds in their own unique way to an oil or supplement. You do not have to be an aromatherapist or health professional to figure out what essential oils or dietary supplement(s) your body prefers. The Zyto Scan will eliminate the guess work. Think of the Zyto engaging as a GPS for your car. The GPS leads you in the right direction. In a similar way, the Zyto Scan helps find the optimal essential oils and supplements for body, mind, and spirit. A Zyto Scan only takes a few minutes to complete and uses a hand cradle connected to a software program on a computer. When the assessment is completed you will have a PDF report that lets you know which oils and /or supplements would be most beneficial. What does the Zyto Compass Assess? The Zyto Compass technology offers you a Bio-Survey of your body addressing 76 bio-markers that include the body systems: circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, nervous, endocrine, skeletal, and muscle systems. What about Safety? There are no known contraindications for properly administered ZYTO scanning. The amount of energy used in a scan is so low that it is safe for infants, children, adults of all ages, for people with pacemakers, and pregnant women. [Disclaimer: The ZYTO Compass does not identify, diagnose or treat any disease or medical condition. Please refer to your healthcare provider to guide you with the specific products and schedule that is best for you.] In closing we would like to wish you Peace and All Good Things.

Here is a great You Tube with many videos on all types of metaphysical and spiritual topics. Since our mission to enlighten and inform, we will be posting at least one a month to be sure you have a great background in many aspects of metaphysics and spirituality. This episode focuses on: his episode explores dimensions, vibration, frequency and everything in between! We can think of dimensions as waveforms, and the difference between each dimension is the length of the waveform itself. The higher you go in dimensions, the shorter the wavelength and the higher and lighter the energy gets.

The Queen’s Chronicles: HARVESTS OF GRATITUDE To all my dear ones, When the going is good and the living is easy it seems only natural to be thankful. But what about all those times when nothing seems to flow? When energy is blocked and life flows like a river of glue. Page | 34
When we are stuck in the rush hour traffic jam of dailiness and our bodies and souls start to feel like banged up bumper cars? When things seem so crazy and out of whack that we wonder what do we have to be thankful for? “Well,” as my dear friend Daile once wisely and calmly commented in the midst of a work disaster that would normally have driven her mad, “at least nobody died.” That's it, exactly. Perspective. The trick is to be able to maintain a healthy perspective. If we can manage to do that, we will automatically enjoy a perpetual attitude of gratitude. People who have themselves been ill and those who caretake others have earned a certain understanding of this point of view. Everything is relative (in both senses of that word). For most of us, though, it is a daily, hourly, minutely learned lesson — one that we tend to forget in the flurry. Here is a moving meditation to help us remember: Take a walk someplace nice. Alone. With each step you take, name one good thing that you have in your life. Say this aloud or silently. Step. My health. Step. My love. Step. My dog. Step. My network of circles. Step. The clouds. Step. The beautiful moon. Step. Trees. Step. A new friend. Step. That certain memory. Step. Not knowing war. Step. Page | 35
A secure home. Step. Two feet. Step. My heart, my soul, my spirit. The list is endless. Gratitude boundless. Thank Goodness! I am especially thankful for all the heartwarming support you showed me this year and expressed in so many wonderful ways. You bought my books. Thank you. You came to my workshops. Thank you. You forwarded my messages to your own circles of friends and family. Thank you. You wrote me amazing letters filled with spirit and soul. Thank you. I would have to walk the entire length of the Great Wall of China in order to name each great gift that I received from you. Thank you all so, so much.

Best Thanksgiving Thanksgiving is here, so our minds have turned To what time has taught us, to what we've learned: We often focus all our thought On shiny things we've shopped and bought. We take our pleasure in material things, Forgetting the pleasure that friendship brings. If a lot of our stuff just vanished today, We'd see the foundation of each happy day Is special relationships, constant and true, And that's when our thoughts go directly to you. We wish you a Thanksgiving you'll never forget, Full of love and joyâ€”your best one yet! By Joanna Fuchs http://www.theholidayspot.com/thanksgiving/poems.htm#IgeqW7b5MU9im1uw.99

I want to give you background on toning, an incredible method to heal yourself, raise your conscious, clear negative emotions and it costs nothing! In the next several emails I will present instructions on how to use this powerful healing tool! Natural tones are the most effective for balancing our voice, such as grunts, groans, moans, screaming, laughing, yawning and sighs. Sounds such as "mmm" and "ah" contain frequencies that elicit improvement. The karate master cries before he strikes. The weight lifter groans as he lifts. Why? Because the voice releases energy and power. Self-created tones affect us from the inside out! "Ouch!" Scream in pain! Why do we do this? We use sound to release pain out of our body. It is instinctual. We use sound naturally to relieve pain, but we forget to credit sound. One reason why toning is an effective healing practice is because feelings attach to sounds. Our subconscious feelings are a part of our spoken words. The quality of our tone communicates our underlying intent and feelings beneath our words. For example, the "hello" we say to someone we love is different than the "hello" we say to someone we don't like. Our emotional communication is clearly in our tone of voice, more so than the words. When our brain censors our spoken words, these censored ideas remain in our tone of voice. We may not even be aware of these subtle underlying feelings, but others sense these feelings from our tone of voice. Sometimes we forget what our truth is, because we have hidden it in our subconscious minds for so long. Sound can carry our hidden feelings back to us. Our tone of voice is a communication link to our subconscious mind. We don't always speak our truth. Sometimes the truth is painful. We are taught to be polite or kind, instead. Another example is a habitual "white lie". How often do we tell people we feel fine, when we don't? Or that "nothing is new", when we don't want to share something new? Or that we like something, when we don't? When our feelings and our words are not in alignment, we create dissonance in our bodies. In contrast, speaking our truth sets us free. Toning is a way to clear stuck negative energies and buried feelings from ourselves. Finally, the Powerful Technique of Toning for your Emotional and Physical Health! Toning for Your Health 1. Close your eyes and imagine that your body is a black ink well. As you utter tones throughout this exercise, visualize clear water coming into the ink well with each breath, until you and the ink well are pristine clear. 2. Let out a vowel sound (any one you feel comfortable with) or even a groan, on the lowest pitch that you can. 3. Let your body speak, not your mind. Don't worry about how you sound, but concentrate on how the sound makes your body feel. Be entirely absorbed in your sound and let it rise from you, as if this sound is separate from you. You are just observing the sound. Page | 38
4. Imagine the tone begins in your feet and works its way up the body until it reaches the top of your head, or above that point by 13 inches or so. (This could take 15 minutes or more.) 5. As you imagine your tone going from your feet to you head, the pitch of your tone will rise, too. Allow the tone to raise in pitch when the body wants it to. 6. Any areas in which the pitch takes a while to rise, is an area with an energy blockage. Don't get louder to break through the energy blockage; that will not help. Gently continue toning and give your voice all the time it needs to raise in pitch. If you stay on a pitch for 5 to 10 minutes, then you are receiving a great healing! 7. If your voice doesn't rise right away, imagine seeing your tone going right or left in your body and finding a path eventually that leads upward. 8. In the spot in your body where you imagine the blockage or discord to be, send feelings of harmony and well-being to that spot. Allow your intent to travel on your voice. Send love to your body. 9. Let the pitch raise as high as it comfortably can. In your imagination, the tone will have traveled to the top of your head or slightly above. This entire process may take 15 to 30 minutes. The first time that you tone, it may take a bit longer, as there are built up energy blockages to clear. It is best to do this daily for better and better health. 10. If you do this regularly, you will feel energized, refreshed, healthier, and will watch negative emotions loosen away from your thinking! Adventure into the world of healing with Sound!

This Blog is for people who wish to learn how to use a very simple, yet powerful and effective spiritual tool every day the rest of your life. It will lessen the stress and fear of life in general, and will make your life easier. It’s so simple a lot of people say “It can’t be this easy,” but it is, because IT WORKS! This reconnects you with your Guardian Angel, or higher power, or whatever your belief is. You simply say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for… thank you!” When you read the stories below, sent from all over the world, we use the acronyms MBO for Most Benevolent Outcomes, GA for Guardian Angel, and BP for Benevolent Prayers (what you ask for other people). Be sure to participate when I ask you to say a Benevolent Prayer out loud, but are you also saying the Daily BP each morning as I do? Theo says this is one of the most important things you could do for yourself not only for this life, but all the others you have lived or will live on earth, as they are all happening at the same time. Print it out and put it on your bathroom mirror to remind you. Here is the link: http://www.thegentlewaybook.com/signs.htm. Here is an example of a BP for everyone to say today: “I ask any and all beings to intervene in the most benevolent way to stop any terrorist attacks before they happen anywhere in the world, to respect other religions, and for there to be peace in the world, thank you!” Welcome to the Benevolent Outcomes Blog, and welcome to everyone who subscribed in the past week MBO FOR BIG, HAPPY SURPRISE Linda in Auburn New York writes: Every morning I ask for an MBO for a happy surprise and my guides always come through. Sometimes it’s a butterfly that comes up to me or a deer in my back yard or a post season white rose on my rose bush. Yesterday I asked for a big happy surprise as of lately times have been a bit challenging. I got into the car just after 6 am to go to the gym and while on the highway I saw a triangle shaped ship with multi colored flash lights just flying slowly over the city like it was taking readings. I pulled off the road to watch it to be sure and there it was plain as dawn. I then sent blessings to the beings in the ship for their work and thanked my guides for a happy surprise. Much needed! I also sent blessings to you for your wonderful work. Thanks for all you do. I also want to note that during my morning prayers I surrounded the city with white light and asked that any negativity be moved on to its next level of its evolutionary process. I did ask if that was noted in their readings and got a yes. MBO FOR FLIGHTS AND CREW Severine writes from China: I have had two flights this week. I requested MBOs for safe, turbulence-free and on time flights. I also said at the time a BP for the pilot and co- pilots, personnel on-board and on the ground to all do a great job to ensure the flight safety and security. Needless to say it worked for both flights. We all had pleasant experience and the outcome was better than expected. Page | 42
MBO A POTENTIAL LIFE SAVER Stephanie in Ohio writes: I continue to use MBO’s all day long with magical results. Now I have a ‘middle of the night’ life saving MBO. I awoke at 3 am smelling something burning. It smelled like a burning electrical wire. For a few moments I panicked and went and got my fire extinguisher, carrying it around the house, heart beating intensely. Then I stopped for a few moments more, taking deep breaths, trying to get out of panic mode. Then I asked for an MBO to find the source of the odor. My eyes immediately locked on to a fan that was not running. When I unplugged the fan the odor ceased! Not sure what would have happened if I hadn’t stated my immediate intention to find the source, but am just grateful for your cheer-leading skills in re-minding us All, of the help available from our angels and guides in our moments of need.

Imagine you are a student and it is the first day of class. You are given a test. You stare at the problem and have no clue how to solve it. You tap your foot nervously. Raindrops of sweat cover your forehead. Trembling, you scribble something on the paper. You know it is the wrong answer. After months of learning, you are ready to graduate. On the last day of class, you are given the same test. Memories of the past resurface. You break out in a cold sweat. Trembling, you reach for a pencil. But then you remember… you know this material! All you need to do is apply all that you have learned to the problem. You write on the paper with confidence and arrive at the right answer. And this is how you pass a spiritual test. Let me explain... -------------------------------I lie in bed staring at the ceiling. For days, fear and doubt have bubbled underneath the surface. Tonight the monster emerges from underneath the bed. Gripped by fear, I cling to my Course in Miracles book. My eyes well up with tears. “What is going on?” I mumble to myself. I reflect on the past few weeks. It’s true… I am in the midst of huge changes in my career and family. But this weakness in faith is troubling. If this is a test of faith then I am failing miserably. Discouraged, I manage to whisper a plea for help before falling asleep. Dream It is current day and I am with my former husband. We stand before one another, older and wiser. We decide to make a commitment to each other again. I am content with this decision because I understand that going back to an old situation and applying all that I have learned, will transform it into a loving expression of my wiser Self. I have a strong knowing that it is important to write down a pledge before we commit. I say to him, “We must write a pledge before making this commitment again. If we are not clear about who we are now and what we are going to do differently, we could slip into old ways.” I am 100% certain about this. The dream ends with us both agreeing to write a pledge. -------------------------------Upon waking, I have an epiphany. Spiritual tests have nothing to do with faith. They are opportunities to transform old situations into new, loving reflections of who we are now. The dream message is clear: I’m not lacking faith. I am slipping into old ways. All I need to do is apply to the problem all that I’ve learned. And avoid slipping into old ways of reacting. Is this what is happening now? Am I slipping into old ways? When making huge changes in the past, I did struggle with fear and doubt. I remember being afraid of expansion and change, feeling guilt over having too much, overwhelmed by self-doubt… the road to transformation was rocky. Now facing a similar situation involving change, I can see that the old ways are resurfacing. The Spirit gave me clear instructions on how to avoid this: be clear about who you are now and what you are going to do differently. I immediately sit down with pen and paper and write my pledge. Here are a few of the entries that made the list. Page | 44
“I solemnly pledge to … •
Honor and value my unique abilities and gifts and let them be used for the highest good of all.
Let change happen without clinging. Remember that changes are always for the better.
Experience financial security with a grateful heart, recognizing that God can meet my needs in a variety of ways.
Follow guidance, even if it means letting go of how I thought my life would be.
“I solemnly pledge to do the following things differently…” • When I am angry or afraid, I will comfort and care for myself without judgment. I will love whatever is coming up and give it to the Spirit for healing. • When I find myself wishing for something I don’t have, instead of negating the desire, I will imagine and feel into the experience. This way I honor everyone’s right to have all that we need to fulfill our destinies. • Whenever I am pushing or forcing something to happen, I will stop and remember that everything happens in perfect timing according to my will and God’s. I will then ask, “What would You have me do now?” I have been using this pledge for the past few days and it has made an amazing difference. Because it expresses perfectly my willingness to have a new experience and my determination to release the past, I am free of judgment, fear, and doubt. Now instead of the familiar dread when facing a test, I am excited to apply what I’ve learned and to solve this problem once and for all. Worksheet: How to Turn Spiritual Tests into Opportunities: 1.
Is your current challenge similar to something in the past?
What struggles, beliefs, fears and/or confusions did you have back then? Are these old ways resurfacing?
Can you see how this current “test” is an opportunity to apply all that you have learned to the problem?
4. Now that you are older and wiser, what promises can you make to yourself when dealing with this situation? What can you pledge to do differently that reflects who you are now and all that you have learned? If you are interested in creating your own spiritual dreaming practice, I will be hosting a workshop on November 11, 2017 in the Rochester area. Visit http://pattifields.com/DreamClass.html for more information. About Patti: I came to the Course in January of 2000. I have dedicated these past years to the study and practice of ACIM principles and teachings. I have discovered in my own life that the promises of this spiritual path are real and possible. I have had numerous and profound experiences when applying these principles to all aspects of my life. This has resulted in a deep, lasting peace; an easier way to be in the world; more joyous and harmonious relationships and a deeper sense of connection to others and to God. I am fellow traveler and a forever student. I share these services in hopes that it will strengthen your trust and faith to follow your Holy Spirit.

Free Yourself Dear Children It comes to mind that life is one big play and you are the actor. You choose the role and you play it well and just sometimes you step out of your role and become the Light. If you continue practicing you become more Light and the everything of your Being and Soul. For those moments you are free from the trappings of your mind and egoic thoughts. Practice every day and you will remain in the Light much longer and stay in a body of great Peace and Love sharing Joy wherever you go. The day is arriving if you so choose. Many Blessings **** Serendipity Dear Children Whatever maybe effecting you is a temporary emotional state. You are all in a state of flux and there are buttons to be pressed according to outside influences. Buttons can disappear as you re-frame them in contrast to the present and not the past. Therefore there are new perceptions of the present for the future and no longer a reaction from your past. Your insights will set you free and the wisdom of teachers around you will guide you to a new place of evaluation and reaction to life’s dramas and loss. You are human to “fall” into your buttons and you are to be kind to self as you learn to be strong in certain circumstances and situations. Behind the scenes you are being applauded by your Angels.

Tom Porpiglia - US Army 11/69 to 8/72
Republic of South Vietnam 8/70 to 8/71
From this Veteran to all Veterans reading this, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE! Saturday 11/11/2017 is Veterans Day. The day, originally known as “Armistice Day”, started on November 11, 1919 to commemorate the end of World War I. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution creating an annual observance of this day and it became a national holiday in 1938. President Eisenhower renamed it to Veterans Day in 1954. Veterans Day is a day of recognition for men and women who are currently serving or have served in the military, regardless of duty station or function performed. In many cases, our veterans make great sacrifices to serve our country in so many ways. So, this Veterans Day, please consider engaging in one of the following activities to honor those who served: •
Change an outdoor light bulb to green and keep it on all the time
Thank a veteran for their service - Shake their hand or give them a hug
Take a veteran out for a meal - Buy them one, or take them to a restaurant that offers discounted or free meals
Send them a Thank You card - find one here
Perform an act of service for a veteran or a deployed veteran's family
Send a deployed veteran a care package

Give them a gift certificate for a massage or acupuncture
â€˘ If they are suffering from PTSD, support them in getting assistance. The Veterans Administration and the Vets Center serves all veterans. In Rochester, NY, there is also the not-for-profit Veterans Outreach Center and the PFC Dwyer Program offered at Compeer among others that I might not be aware of. The Veterans Stress Project and the Veterans EFT Tapping Project offers limited free services across the US to help veterans reduce PTSD symptoms. There are also Veterans Service Agencies in every county in NYS that assist veterans with benefits and are not part of the VA system. At Life Script Mental Health Counseling Services, I offer 6 free sessions to any veteran suffering from PTSD. Using Emotional Freedom Techniques will help reduce symptoms quickly and easily. I also offer reduced rates for immediate family members, couples counseling, and veterans with non-PTSD issues. Did you know that EFT/Tapping drastically reduces the symptoms of PTSD in just one session? Research demonstrated a sustainable 63% reduction in symptoms in 85% of the veterans treated. The remaining 15% treated in the same periods achieved symptom reduction, not just that dramatic. EFT can help anyone suffering from PTSD, regardless of the origin of the trauma. Good news for Veterans: The VA will begin issuing photo ID cards to all honorably discharged veterans. The card will enable veterans to identify themselves easily at businesses that offer discounts to veterans, like Home Depot and Lowes. It is my understanding that this card will also allow you to make purchases at the soon to be available on-line military exchange store. Many businesses offer discounts to veterans only on Veterans Day, and some restaurants offer veterans free meals on Veterans Day. For a comprehensive list, visit Military.com. About Tom: I am the founder and sole Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) at Life Script Mental Health Counseling Services. As an EFT Therapist or EFT Practitioner using EFT Counseling Techniques, my goal is to provide a unique and different approach to Mental Health Counseling by incorporating holistic approaches to healing that quickly provide you relief from distressing life issues by using highly effective EFT Therapy Techniques.

We are the Trees. We, too, are Record Keepers. Our branches are layered with information. Our leaves are recording plates that capture your words and actions as you walk by.

Opals are precious and semi-precious gemstones. Precious opals exhibit a rainbow-like play of color or opalescence due to their fascinating internal structures. At a microscopic level, opals are constructed of silica spheres arranged in a closely packed, cubic or hexagonal pattern. Light passing through these spherical structures gets diffracted and results in internal rainbow sheen. The more perfect the molecular structure, the more color the stone exhibits. Semi-precious opal displays little to no play of color, as its internal molecular structure is irregular. Some semi-precious varieties are known as “jelly” varieties, such as fire opal or cherry opal from Mexico and Oregon, or Girasol from Canada. These varieties can display opalescence, which is different from color play in that opalescence is more of a soft, milky, almost oily-looking color display that can be one or more colors rather than the fiery, rainbow-speckled appearance of “play of color” or “play of light” that are displayed by the precious varieties of opal. Potch opal is too thick for much light to pass through, and it does not display any color play or opalescence. In general, all opals are stones of the spirit world. They work excellent on the crown chakra and the third eye chakra to strengthen and open both of them up, as well as to synthesizing the two. When used in meditation, opals can help you see the connection between the spiritual and the psychic, and dispels fear when dealing with ghosts and entities due to this understanding. They help you to become more aware of the realm of the dead and can be used to strengthen communication with the spirits of those who have crossed over. People can wear opals at the ears or throat for this purpose, or hold during meditation. When we were teenagers, my friends and I once sunk a simple potch opal in a Ouija board that we crafted, and I think it strengthened the connection between the users and the spirit very well. Opals also have the reputation for veiling its owner in a shroud of mystery, allowing one to “disappear” or seem insignificant if one needs to have some protection from being noticed. Opal carries a dreamy, creative energy that helps the imagination to run free. It promotes a feeling of otherworldliness and mystery as well as an appreciation of beauty and harmony in ones self and ones surroundings. In this way opal is a wonderful stone for artists, poets, writers and philosophers. Opal can be used to enhance the most amiable parts of ones personality because it brings gentleness of spirit while energizing one’s “fire” and promoting spontaneity. All opals that display “fire” help the user understand change and accept it as a cleansing, energizing factor in ones life. It helps to retain your own “fire” during these stressful times. Along with everything I’ve stated so far, some specific types of opals have additional qualities. Black opals can also be used as a grounding stone, as well as for “gazing”. White opals can brings calm and inspiration. Pink opal heals the heart chakra and promotes self-love and peaceful resolution to conflict, both within ones self and with other people. Blue jelly opal (Girasol) is fire-less and opalescent. It soothes the throat chakra and helps one communicate freely and without fear. Golden opal also has no fire and helps to clear away infections of the body and infestations of the mind. It clears away unhelpful attitudes and patterns that interfere with natural change and growth. Cherry opal is fire-less as well and works great to cleanse and energize the first three chakras. Opalized nature helps you to come to grips with your own destiny and helps guide you along this path. Bolder opal strengthens communication with otherworld entities and also cleanses the aura.

In all its forms, opals are beautiful stones. They work especially well with people who have strong Scorpio, Cancer, Libra, or Pisces influence in their astrological charts, and it is one of the traditional birthstones for October.

AWAKENING THE INNER SPIRIT BY ANGELICA ROSE https://angelroselove.wixsite.com Some may ask, how do I know when the Inner Spirit is awakened? The human mind is complex, having many beliefs. Beliefs that are conscious and others are hidden in the unconscious. Some beliefs activate the Inner Spirit and others put it to 'sleep'. When the human mind dominants by over thinking and you give it power, it controls your life, creating many complexities through its familiar belief patterns. There are beliefs that trigger the ego control and those that activate the inner Spirit. When the ego is running your life, that area it's running its running have dormant and active beliefs that are not serving the inner spirit. The Ego reacts through a fight/flight, protect mode where it feels it has to shield itself from lower frequencies. If you allow the human ego to control your life and identify with it as you, you create separateness and experience struggles. The stronger the human ego control, comes in the forms of resistance, judgment, force, and hate the greater the level of struggle creating more struggles and negative influences. Habits and beliefs that are not in alignment with your Spirit being attract lessons, in the form of challenges in the area necessary to evolve, to help you become smarter "spiritually. As you start to Awaken the inner Spirit, you expand spiritually and become more playful, loving with a peaceful expression. Choices we make are based on the most Dominant belief System-Transform the Belief System-Transform YOUR Life. Page | 51
Judgment is a label of right and wrong, good and bad based on inward beliefs. Any feelings you are experiencing as a participant you then identify with those feelings, thereby trigger behaviors that are self-focused, insecure, fear-driven, and needy. Quiet the mind and calm the emotions. Put your attention on love, appreciation, gratitude and celebration not on fixing, correcting the dramas in the world, Move you out of judging the situation or person and avoid attracting negative influences. Focus and keep your attention on what you would like to create, rather than what is annoying you. In other words go above the condition rather than underneath it. Embrace any feelings of fear, insecurity, rather than resist, persist through complaining or judge it. Be the observer rather than participant of the human thoughts, unpleasant situations or chaos in order to diffuse its power over you. This will allow you to move into an inward calmness to respond vs. react to the thoughts, situation or chaos. A Buddhist said if you don't accept the gift it is not yours. So if someone behaves in a manner that you don't feel connected to, bless them and know it is perfect. Yon don't have to entertain it, by teaching, giving your opinion, judging, etc. That moves you out of a inner Peace and Love and then the Ego control of fight, flight and protections kicks in. A Peaceful-Joyful-Loving Approach to the Inner Spirit mind is simple. Its focus is on gratitude, innovation and exploring new tasks at hand. This educates the human mind and you become smarter in a more joyful manner. When the heart is focused on appreciation and love first in your life, it triggers the Inner Spirit to become more active and there is a more loving flow with life and all decisions. The Awakened Inner Spirit has a sense of freedom, an aliveness, higher sense of love, joy, peace and harmony. You feel vital and accepting. A sense of being in the moment and enjoying life. You "awaken your Inner Spirit" when you transmute enough of the beliefs that no longer serve. As these beliefs are transmuted, more of your inner Spirit 'awakens' and can express in a fuller manner. Eventually you experience a level of Spiritual Freedom, a heightened frequency level of inner peace, greater joy and pure love. where you are so connected to love that there is no shielding because the lower frequencies cannot touch this vibration. You enjoy sharing from a 'we' focus and flow with life in a calm, peaceful, harmonious, humble, happier and more positive manner. Copyright 2015.

Most all Energy Healers are in it for the outcome! We want to help our clients help themselves. Our goal is better health at all levels, in all ways, for the highest, best good of each person. The healing process can happen in many ways, not only physically. It can bring up emotional issues, spiritual awakenings and physical releases. Occasionally a client may experience what is called a Healing Reaction. A Healing Reaction can involve “negative” physical symptoms immediately following a healing session. Reactions might manifest as nausea, pain in an area being treated, headache, cold symptoms, emotional upset, or intensification of the symptoms of a chronic condition or illness. This Healing Reaction can happen with increased energy and blood flow to an injured area, and may also show that the body is detoxing as it prepares to heal. People who are more likely to experience Healing Reactions: first time healing clients, folks with chronic conditions, those who live with high level of stress, and people suffering from PTSD. These Healing Reactions are very rare, usually do not last more than a few days, but may continue for a week or more. They are also usually an indication that more energy healing is needed. Clients should be encouraged to drink plenty of water, rest, and be gentle with themselves. We sometimes see similar reactions following a chiropractic adjustment or deep massage. Since energy healing is complementary to traditional Western medicine we always encourage clients to maintain their usual medical support treatments. One of my clients describes her unique experience with her first energy healing session and the results that followed: “After a home accident where a chair leg went into my neck I had multiple injuries. My collarbone was crushed in one spot, broken and separated. The clavicle was turned in towards one lung. After a year the crushed area had healed but not the break. My doctor wanted to use part of my hip bone and a metal plate to repair it. I went to Kathy for a healing session. It was warm and comforting, but as I was driving home afterwards I felt sharp stabbing pains that continued into the night. The next morning I was shocked to see the clavicle bone had moved up into almost perfect alignment. My doctor was amazed and said there was no medical reason for this to have happened in less than a week since my previous appointment with him. X-rays showed the change clearly. I’ve always believed in Kathy but now I believe in the power of energy healing.” (K.W.) My client experienced what we would call a miraculous healing experience but she also experienced a painful healing reaction as her injured area was flooded with healing energy and the work took place. I don’t promise miracles or painful results, but both do happen occasionally. I do promise that together we will intend and direct the energy of the Universe to work through and with the client for their best outcome. About Kathy: Kathy has been working with healing energy since 1998. She is a Reiki Master Teacher trained in the Usui Shiki Ryoho tradition. Kathy is an NSAC Certified Spiritual Healer and has pursued extended training in Integrated Energy Therapy, Sound Healing, Crystal Therapy, Color Healing, Zero Point Regeneration Healing, Intention Healing, Meditation, Mediumship, Essential Oils, and Herbology. It is with great love and compassion that she intuitively brings these healing tools together for the benefit of others.

This blog and video about Changing Belief Systems and Healing Your Anxiety comes from a reader’s question. (If you have a question for me, ask in the comments! I will probably make a video for you!) Anxiety vs. Belief Systems Here is the question: Hi Jodi, Do you have to heal belief systems from the past in order to heal from anxiety? For example, I know that my nervous system freaks out easily and says “Be careful!” “Watch out!” due to abandonment from early years. There is a lack of trust in life and fear my body will malfunction (because it does a lot). So, do you have to be [changing belief systems] in order to move forward to freedom? Or do you have to learn to trust yourself in the present? The heart of the question I hear is, “Do you have to heal the past or just build trust in the future?” You have very little attention and energy when you have anxiety so getting these answers is important. Let’s save time and put that little bit of effort into doing THE best practice to getting better. However, this is also anxiety insidiously at work pinning you down, when you think it is protecting you (by saving your time). “You have to do it right!’ it says, when it is really causing you to feel more out of control because you don’t know what is right and God-forbid you make a mistake. Healing Your Anxiety The approach I use doesn’t make you choose between changing belief systems from the past and building trust in the future because either one will trigger the other. Our past and how we understand it is the biggest culprit in why we mistrust ourselves in the present. When you make peace with what happened you see it differently and you see yourself differently. You stop the negative judgments about it and start to see your skills. This is how you build trust in the present. And when we work on affirmations to build trust in our present self we start to rethink those negative takenfor-granted views about our past. Watch the video to get the details. Page | 54
Changing Belief Systems and Healing Your Anxiety Beliefs stick because we repeat them over and over. If you keep asking, “What is wrong with me?” then, you are going to think you don’t know what is wrong with you, (even though, for example, you know your feelings were hurt when someone was mean to you). Stop repeating this negative self judgment by building trust in yourself through self-compassion. Beliefs are very powerful. One big difference between people who continue to suffer from anxiety and those that get better fast is that they believe that they can. You think I can and you can’t. If you believe that you will be okay eventually – this means you trust that you WILL figure this out – you will. Get help here. Hope that answers your question! About Jodi: Jodi is licensed clinical social worker and former anxiety sufferer. She is a counselor, mother, healer, lover, teacher, author and friend. She has been counseling children and adults since 1994, working with folks online and in her office.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, and The Gifts of Imperfection “True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging. Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, “True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that’s rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it’s easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it’s a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It’s a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.” Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, “The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.” Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gm9JrYhF-Bk
