Who makes the rules?

With our current over scheduled lifestyles and our attention pulled in a million directions like never before in our human existence on earth, did you ever think to yourself…. “well if I got a bad cold I could at least take a break and have an excuse to lie down and do nothing for awhile… without feeling guilty.” If you have, you’re not alone. Unless you live in a Ashram in the Himalayas, you realize that we live in a severely stimulation overloaded society.

Things today are moving faster and faster, and seemingly spinning out of control at times….. But this “reality” is not reality at all. Most of what we *experience* every day is created in our very own little brains. Every thought we think is constantly emitting frequencies that go out into the universe like a radio signal that the universe in turn sends back your way the things, people and experiences that match the frequency you’re putting out. Case in point. That if you actually just took the time to rest when you needed it, or took 20 minutes…heck – 5 minutes – to just breathe and give yourself a break – free and clear of any guilt – NEWSFLASH – the world will not fall apart. In fact, when you take care of yourself – AND feel good about it – (this is key) the opposite actually happens.

Space opens up. Fissures in the rock solid beliefs you hold start to appear, shining light on limiting beliefs that have held you back but really aren’t true, and are rather just thoughts you’ve believed in so long, you take them as truth. And every time you think these thoughts, you are just strengthening them into your ‘truth.’ It takes some work to undo these unconscious belief systems, but it doesn’t have to be difficult, this is just another belief. It does take connecting with the self, taking the time to nurture being instead of always doing. It may sound counterintuitive when you’ve got a to-do list as long as your arm and the idea of taking time to go inward doesn’t seem like it will get any of those items ticked off your list any faster. But it actually can. Think along the lines of…an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…or, when a door closes, a window opens.

An amazing way to connect into ourselves and help entrain new thought patterns is by using sound waves. Participating in a sound bath is an immersive and deeply relaxing and healing experience. The sounds emitted from singing bowls and other tribal instruments connect your physical being with your spiritual being.  These frequencies aren’t just heard by your ears, but are truly felt by each of your cells and energy bodies. You see, everything is made up of energy, you know that. And all energy has a particular frequency. Sound is a frequency that is audible to our ears. But just as you know a dog whistle that we can’t hear still exists and has an effect because Spot certainly can hear it; sound frequencies can affect us in profound ways that we don’t even realize.

Come and experience a guided meditation with singing bowls this Wednesday, and take time for yourself to relax, connect, and plant your intentions while we take advantage of the New Moon energies. You’ll also learn some self care practices that you can do at home.    LEARN MORE AND REGISTER

Full Moon Singing Bowl Meditation

 

Wednesday, January 31st – 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Full Moon Singing Bowl Meditation

The Blue Moon – second of two full moons in one calendar month – will pass through the Earth’s shadow on January 31, 2018, to give us a total lunar eclipse. Totality, when the moon will be entirely inside the Earth’s dark umbral shadow, will last a bit more than one-and-a-quarter hours. The January 31 full moon is also the third of three straight full moon supermoons – that is, super-close full moons. It’s the first of two Blue Moons in 2018. So it’s not just a total lunar eclipse, or a Blue Moon, or a supermoon. It’s all three … a super Blue Moon total eclipse!
Join me for a relaxing guided meditation with singing bowls; various crystal and metal bowls produce sounds that affect us in profound ways. These sound waves help create a state of peace and calm.
A wonderful way to let go of what no longer serves us for this new year and create a peaceful state of mind to call in what we would like to manifest. Yoga mats, cushions and blankets will be available, but feel free to bring a pillow for added comfort if you like.

Cost: $25 – As a special gift, receive an essential oils Chakra roller with 7 different gemstones, to help keep your vibe high.

Mandala@2601 is located on the first floor of the 2601 Condo Building on Pennsylvania Ave, Philadelphia PA 19130

A Spirit Wants To Be Seen

Feeling invisible. That is not a good feeling generally. I mean I’m not talking as in a super hero’s powers, which would be really fun to try out for sure, but we all have a need to be seen. This can be read as heard, listened to, looked at, experienced as the person that is you. I thought about this more when I had an absolutely amazing thing happen to me last Friday.

Last week my husband and I with our 3-1/2 year old son went to visit my sister and her family that live in New Orleans. We were actually staying at a cousins’ beautiful lake house  not far from Baton Rouge and the Mississippi border. One early evening we went to visit a historic plantation dating back to the 1700’s, known as “The Myrtles” It is one of the most haunted places in the US, I found out. We took a guided tour which was fascinating and included the story of a slave who lived on the property named Chloe. Her spirit along with those of two children, frequently make their presence known on the grounds of the property, and Chloe’s image has been captured on film, the most famous one taken in 1992 shown to us at the end of the tour. It was tested by experts at National Geographic, with no explanation for the ghostly image appearing there.

This is the photo I took last week below, in which appears not only two distinct greenish orbs in the center of the photo, but also I noticed something later, when my nephew pointed out something I hadn’t seen. When inspecting the photo closer, up on the roof, between the branches of the tree directly above the white patio umbrella, is a clear figure whom I believe is Chloe.

Light Worker BEe…

It’s an imperative statement, as in, “you, light worker, just be….” be the light that you are. But its easier to say it, or write it, than it is to be it. I also see it as a “light worker bee” someone spreading light and love, working in tandem with a whole community of worker bees, each doing their part for the highest good for all.

I am starting this blog to talk about how difficult it can be to truly be yourself, and to support others in listening to the most important voice of all, their own. This is especially true when that means you work with energy, your intuitive gifts, are into crystals and or generally work with tools that to some, seem “woo-woo,” or “out there,” as in, crazy town…  Continue reading “Light Worker BEe…”
