When We Affirm

When We Affirm

Affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, “to make steady, strengthen.” A statement said with assertion of something that exists or is true. A statement said in present tense pertaining to something you have chosen to attract.  You begin and you say it, state it, over and over. You ignite an energy. Life will send you some proof that what you are doing works, you will receive some positive feedback. But in order for it to be complete, what will surface next is anything that is not congruent with your statement. Anything that is in conflict, resistant to what your making steady, giving strength to, making firm. When you affirm, “Every day in every way I am better and better.” What doesn’t fit and align with this, will present itself for you to change, to heal, to go forward into what is better. When a collective energy of many comes together and affirms a choice, the energy exponentially amplifies and this universal law presents what is out of alignment with its manifestation, returns to us with great magnitude. Such as – “Black Lives Matter.” What is needed in order for it to manifest, comes to the forefront for us to heal, clear, release. We are in the midst of this.  Those who continue to hold racist views. Those who support white supremacy. Those who are afraid of change. The fear of the manifestation of Black Lives Matter, is now front and centre. It is not enough to affirm. We must now be prepared to heal what is in the way of this becoming a reality. The words are the easy...
Writing Lines

Writing Lines

For the past two months I’ve returned to writing lines — my affirmations. There are times when positive thinking and meditation need a boost, a back-up. Taking pen to hand and writing (not typing) is an energy that is powerful. It is an extension of yourself. When you have a focus on what you are choosing to attract and you feel as if you are missing the mark, writing can assist in creating the shift. I enjoy Catherine Ponder’s work. Her writings were some of the first books I read, some thirty years ago, when I began my journey into metaphysics. She’s, an easy read, practical and she tells stories from her experiences to illustrate her teachings of metaphysical concepts with a multiple of affirmations to implement change in your life and bring about manifestations for a new reality, where you are healthier, happier and more prosperous. I take an affirmation that supports what I’m working on and I write it out ten times. The power of repetition, is just that, powerful.  The energy of the “10” has no grey area. It asks for clarity, to be concise – no room for doubt or being wishy washy. Make a decision and stick with it. During this process, I started to snicker, thinking  back to my school days and how many times I received the punishment of writing lines. Hundreds of lines at a time. Yes, me. Not the most obedient student. I didn’t always share the same view as my teacher. Hmmm?  I practiced the ability to hold two pens in the same hand, producing two lines at a...
Crazy, Maybe

Crazy, Maybe

“Everything is the opposite of what it appears to be  and nothing is the opposite of what it appears to be.” Perhaps, another way to say it is; “It is, but it isn’t.” When I first started my studies, one of my first facilitators would say, “It’s simple but it isn’t.” I listened.  Always a choice to make things simple or complex. When Virginia Springer my RMT who specializes in posture alignment and much much more suggested this affirmation, I felt, “Sure, I get it.” But then I had to write her and ask her for it again and then again and ask for an explanation. This is what she sent me; The “Crazy Phrase” is an access tool.  “It’s a way to get you free. It also works to clarify things in your own world. If you have someone driving you crazy, if you have insomnia, if you are thinking too much, repeat it 3-20X, and, the person will stop driving you crazy, you will be asleep, your mind will stop running non-stop.” I am going to work with this and see what transpires. I invite you to work with this as well. Let me know what your findings are, what you attract, what you release, what you resolve. I look forward to a conversation with you.   Resource; Access Consciousness, Dr. Dain Heer & Gary Douglas Photos; Sharon Cooke, Unsplash; “Shadow” Luis...
The Art of Muscle Testing

The Art of Muscle Testing

Muscle Testing originated in Applied Kinesiology. Kinesi – a movement Ology – a science or branch of learning Kinesiology – The study of the movement of the body. In the early 60’s an American chiropractor, Dr. George Goodheart, discovered that muscle testing could determine the state of acupuncture meridians and therefore the energetic condition of the body. This method could determine whether a given muscle group was functioning normally. As this technique could determine physical trauma, it was felt that it could possibly determine emotional trauma.  And it did with 80% accuracy and it continues to do so. Your being contains all of your information, like your own personal hard drive. Muscle testing allows a practitioner to access your information. Your information rather than someone’s opinion. Muscle testing takes you to the source. Where it all began. It allows you to know how ready you are to move forward, what may be blocking you. You can determine which supplements are beneficial to you and how much would be best for you to take and on and on.  Thirty years ago, in the late 80’s, my chiropractor and my family doctor were both using Muscle Testing to access information and to ensure that any manipulation had indeed taken effect.  I decided I wanted to learn how to do what they were doing. My doctor, gave me the name of another practitioner and she sat me down and instructed me on what I needed to read and what courses I needed to take.  I said, “Yes” and away I went. Dr. Goodheart was doing this in the 60’s, I began using...
Well, Mercury, Is In Retrograde (I’m just saying)

Well, Mercury, Is In Retrograde (I’m just saying)

This subject was not my plan for today. But… something happened and here it is. Yesterday I was in my iCloud account — why I have no idea, I hardly ever go there. Some evil energy descended on me. A weird message came up and prompted me to change my password. I did. From there I went to hell in a hand basket. I went into my files and everything was gone. I mean everything. Yes, I back-up but this was bigger than having backup. I knew that Mercury was in Retrograde, so I couldn’t validate a ‘hissy fit’ complete with crying out, “It’s not fair!!” I knew to take a breath and step away from my computer. I showered, dressed, made my bed and then completed with the applying of lipstick. I simply don’t do much without my ‘lips’ on. Poured myself a glass of water and kept breathing. Deeply. Then on to Apple Care, tech support, I went. My first support person did a few “Oh my God’s” to herself, but with her outside voice so I was privy to her bad news vibe. Next I was on hold for a senior supervisor. Cut to the chase, all worked out. In the past, I would not have asked myself to choose calm over, crazy. Mercury Retrograde, like any negative influence in your life, can take you down or take you forward. I’ve bonded with Merc so I tend to take the high road and trust in patience, timing, being flexible and placing things on hold and going on to something else. Chanting, “All works out” is always...
Intention

Intention

In the 1999 film, The Name of The Game, the character Bill Chapel, stands on the pitchers mound and before he throws the first pitch, inside he announces to himself, “Clear the Mechanism.” Everything inside him goes silent, he is absent of distraction, he is present and he is ready. Shen Yun, which translates as, “The beauty of divine beings dancing,” is a performing arts company of classical Chinese dance. They are of the Falun Gong spiritual discipline. Before they perform they exercise and then they meditate, aligning to who they are and what they are about to share. A woman stands before an audience at a Slam Poetry event to share her work. She is indigenous and before she recites her poem, she sings in her native tongue, centring, grounding, connecting to her truth. Your intention, why are you doing what you have decided to do, what is your purpose, your goal. When you make that decision and know why you are where you are and what you hope to achieve, gain or accomplish, it is beneficial to align to your intention, to be present with your choice, be in synch, focused, grounded. Often we run from on event to another, with the sole intention of just getting there and getting through with no thought as to why we are truly there. We may have had an idea at the initial choice, but somewhere it slips from us and we find ourselves merely going through the motions till it is complete and we are on to the next entry in our day. Think about when you are in...
