It’s Almost Halloween and Are You Experiencing Things That Go Bump in the Night or Feel Negative Energy in Your Home or Surrounding Area?

Well there are such things as haunted houses, or you find yourself feeling negative vibes from a neighbor or within your area.  You may feel a loss of vitality, a sense of dread or doom, become accident prone for no apparent reason, there is tension and miscommunication with your colleagues or family and friends.

Through a team or sometimes depending on the situation all that is needed is a house blessing.  However in extreme cases where there is paranormal activity a seasoned and trained team of ritual masters can dispel, dismiss these negative energies and entities.

I have a team of seasoned ritual masters and yes we are paid for our work.  This is extremely serious and dangerous work.  We are not a paranormal group that you see on TV.  Seriously they are playing with danger and do not have the knowledge to dismiss these entities. I even witness on TV where the man stated something went through him. That is intensely serious andI hope and pray he is well as from my training that entity caused damaged to his energy fields and if not addressed properly can lead to serious physical and mental damage.

With these tools our team can remove the entities or negative energies and set up protection in your home and property .  It will be secure and safe.

Contact us for a house blessing or a serious paranormal clearing.

Stress Management and Why Attend My Seminar on Stress Rescue

Stress occurs from any stimuli that elicits a sense of dread, fear, anxiety and also a physical reaction such as increased heart rate and respiration rate, insomnia, nightmares and many other symptoms.

We all have everyday stressors such as being in a job you don’t enjoy.  A boss that always is pressuring you to perform unreasonable tasks. 

Parenting has many stressors:  the need to discipline your child can be stressful. A single mother that needs to financially support her children and at times pay for a caregiver to watch over them when she is required to work late or attend a function or any numerous circumstances.

Stress if ongoing can lead to ill health, mental illness, disease states and lowered vitality .

If not effectively dealt with you will be living in a constant wheel that replays over and over and leads to illness, decreased productivity at work or at home, depression and isolation.

So you ask me : “How do I effectively deal with stress and destress ?”  What you need to do the following you can research and deal with it on your own;  but depending on the stressors you need someone who’s there for you.  Who understands the situation and can advise an provide you with effective tools that you utilize to release stress.iIn my one day seminar :  ” Stress Rescue”  you will leafrn effective and simple tools that you can confidently make a part of your daily routine.

You also can consult with me and discuss your progress.

Now the gem of these tools is that once you effectively incorporate them into your life you will experience joy, passion, vitality and know and desire more.  Because there is more in life and in the teachings I can offer you to become the empowered and find your joy and what your passion and true purpose is in life.  

 

The Value of Life Activation and Initiation October 5, 2019

Why is it that man /woman needs miracles to believe ? and then there are those that despite it

all do not believe?

These and many of these thoughts and questions have I pondered on. It is so easy today to be

absorbed in technology and not recognize the beauty of nature, our planet and all the creature

whether big or small for their reminder that it was a higher power vibration sound that created

this earth its inhabitants animal mineral vegetable and entomologic,

it seems that man/woman struggles with their own perception of who they truly are never quite

understanding the uniqueness of what they have and how they can change the world around

them.

There are many theories principles that have been discovered by man/ woman and then they

are presented to us in a public forum… but ironically this is knowledge man/woman inherently

has within their soul and so why is it they do not remember it?

That is where life activation and initiation come in here’s my story…

anyhow seriously I was psych major prior to becoming a surgical trauma ICU nurse and then a

liver transplant coordinator. I am a testament that people with some type of learning and spatial

misalignment are changed by these healings. I would not be doing this if I personally had not

seen improvements. I know I had told you that it takes about 7 yrs to integrate the life

activation. Here’s my personal testament: I had been given massive doses of cortisone via

injection from birth because I had an unusual burn like all over my skin. The doctors were

baffled did not know what to do so cortisone was the solution. Now miind you there are side

effects to cortisone… I had them I had massive setbacks with schooling from constantly getting

ear infections and strep infections then given PEN injections.. these were the old fashioned

needles pure steel with long needles . Need I tell you very painful. This ensued till I was 7 yrs

old and I almost died from scartlet fever and yes I actually did see and hear do I want to die or

stay and I stayed. Then I had weight problems and that continued till the age of 30 when I just

prayed really hard and long to the Blessed Mother to help me with this problem. It was yrs but

did resolve itself gradually.

Anyhow I could go on and on… and even in my nursing career and schooling I did have learning

difficulties. Schedules that were written with checks and blank spaces I never could seem to get

it right and misunderstood the check to stand for come to work vs blank no attendance and

messed myself up and the staff often but was able to show up on time but most embarrasing ..

then with parking in the parking lot I had a hard time judging where and how to manuever

between two cars cause I could not perceive the distance and spatial configuration. Then once

I got life activated things shifted these problems disappeared and even with reading I was faster

and got things right away while in the past I could not have fun and then learn … I was

constantly hitting the books writing things down to remember them,

well besides all of this there are a myriad of other things I could cite in how my life has improved

even if it does not fully reflect to the world a most successful entrepreneurial woman.

So here’s the flyer ….

Also because of my educational struggles and interpersonal I decided to become a Mini Me

Yoga Ambassador because I see the value of these workshops for everyone and for the children

it changes their lives !!!

I must really say with all the personal struggles a great deal of joy comes knowing that as I

engage and interact with other people I learn about their own personal struggles and the

victories they have achieved. The bottom line is everyone has his/her story it’s all about what

you do with it what you make of it that counts. Do you find joy in what you do? Have you made

a difference in someone’s life? if you were to die today would you be certain that you would

enter The Pearlie Gates of Heaven or whatever your belief system is : the Halls of Valhalla,

Nirvana…??

its the fruits of our labor that counts if your tree bears ripened fruit good for the pickings then

you create a positive environment for yourself and those around you and it in turn spirals up

affecting all…

So That’s my story…call me or reach out to me by e-mail or Facebook…Let’s make the world a

better place for all to live in peace and harmony for all.

God is Watching You by Mark Van Vugt Ph.D October 3rd, 2019

“God was emphatically in the news in the summer of 2016. In Rio de Janeiro, almost no Olympic medal was celebrated without elaborately thanking Him while His son overlooked the Olympics from the Corcovado Mountain. In Kentucky, the doors opened to a Christian amusement park which contains a life-sized replication of Noah’s Ark. In several European cities, bloody attacks reoccurred in His name (Allahu Akbar). In secular European countries like the Netherlands, the UK and the Scandinavian countries, we would almost forget that the world is becoming increasingly religious.  International research shows that the percentage of religious believers in the 20th and 21st century has only increased worldwide despite major advances in science and technology.

As an evolutionary psychologist, the popularity of God – and religion in a broader sense – requires an explanation. Among the anthropologists, philosophers, psychologists, and biologists who are engaged in researching the functions of religion, one can basically distinguish between two camps. First is the group that assumes that belief in God in itself has no purpose. Their reasoning is that we humans simply happen to be blessed with a sizeable brain that not only allow us to meet our social and physical needs, but also to think about abstract things like our own mortality, higher purposes, or supernatural powers. Thus, according to this theory, God is a side-effect of our large brain. Belonging to this category are the New Atheists, led by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, who argue that belief in God is a harmful meme. According to them, God is a parasite who spreads in the minds of people with the aim of keeping them stupid and suppressed. This resembles the image of God as evil, chain-smoking drunkard, as is portrayed in the recent European comedy “Le Tout Nouveau Testament” (The Totally New Testament).

The second group of evolutionary scientists assumes that belief in God surely does have a function, or at least had a function in the communities our ancestors lived in, which explains why the human brain is still so sensitive to religious ideas. The reason religions could spread around the world is because they offered support and comfort in harsh times. In prehistoric societies where disease and death were constantly lurking, supernatural explanations for disaster could offer consolation. A second, and perhaps even more important function is God as the Big Brother who makes sure people adhere to the norms and rules of society and under threat of a divine sanction put their own interests aside for the interests of the group. About this ‘supernatural punishment hypothesis,’ my Oxford colleague Dominic Johnson recently wrote a very readable book titled God Is Watching You: How the fear of God makes us human.[1]

The argument is that our ancestors had a need for a stable, peaceful society in which people could trust each other. Belief in a supernatural power that sanctioned greed served as a driving force. Because of that, religious societies increased in strength and size at the expense of societies that did not embrace the concept of God. There is ample evidence for the function of a punishing God. A comparative study across 186 cultures worldwide revealed that the larger the community, the more they embrace punishing gods. For instance, the Shona in Zimbabwe believe that their forest is guarded by a snake that causes people to get lost or die in the forest.

Could it be that the idea of a punishing God – and hell, for Christians – only became popular with the emergence of large, complex societies? To test this idea, researchers experimented in eight small, traditional societies, where they had people play a game for money in which they had to roll a die to determine how much money they gave themselves or a stranger from another village yet of the same religion.[2]  In a fair dice roll, this should lead to half of the money being allocated to the self and the other half to the stranger. What the researchers found was that the more strongly a society believed in punishing gods, the more honest and generous the inhabitants were towards these strangers.

But what about Christianity and the many new forms of religion in our Western society that mainly presume Godly love? According to Johnson, the government has taken over the role of punisher in our societies, so there must be sought for a different interpretation of God. In various places in the world where the state does not function well, such as in the Middle East or parts of South America, their God-concept is also hardening.  When societies are threatened from either the inside or outside, the desire for a large statue of Christ will grow.” in Psychology Today by Mark Van Vugt Ph.D

Melinda Gates Pledges $1 million to Promote Gender Equality October 2, 2019

On Wednesday morning, Melinda Gates announced that she is pledging $1 billion to promote gender equality in the U.S. over the next 10 years. Gender equality has been a long-standing priority for Gates, and one she has supported through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Pivotal Ventures, the investment and incubation company she founded in 2015. It is also the subject of her 2019 book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World.

Gates and her team at Pivotal Ventures identified three changes that she thinks will make a measurable impact by 2030: dispelling the barriers women face at work, creating opportunities for women to scale to leadership positions and making sure businesses are held accountable for fostering gender equality.

Through Pivotal Ventures, Gates and her team will use the $1 billion to identify and fund organizations and policy makers committed to the three priorities. That will include organizations that do a number of things, like fighting against workplace sexual harassment and discrimination, dismantling barriers that hold women back from achieving leadership positions, increasing representation of women in traditionally male-dominated industries and pressuring institutions to reform.

“$1 billion is a lot of money, but I also recognize that it’s only a small fraction of what’s necessary,” she wrote in a Time article that announced her pledge, “That’s why I hope the financial commitment I’m making today is seen as both a vote of confidence in the experts and advocates who are already working on these issues—and an invitation for others to join the cause and make commitments of their own. Equality can’t wait, and no one in a position to act should either.”

Gates also outlined the strategy and goals of her pledge in a recent Harvard Business Review article, where she described that her sense of urgency was motivated by The World Economic Forum’s Gender Gap Index, which found that at the current rate of change, the gender inequality gap will not close in the U.S. for another 208 years. “I believe our goal should be to expand women’s power and influence in society. I think of power and influence as the ability to make decisions, control resources, and shape perspectives,” she wrote, “It is something women exercise in their homes, in their workplaces, and in their communities.” While “power” and “influence” are descriptions not usually attributed to women, she said that they are the best way to explain the power disparity between men and women. She called for philanthropists, venture capitalists, business leaders and policy makers to make gender-focused policy a priority.

Japanese Buddhist Master’s 21 Rules of Life October 1, 2019

Japanese Buddhist master Miyamoto Mushashi’s 21 rules of life.

Known as Japan’s greatest ever swordsman, he wrote these 21 rules 2 weeks before his death.

Each rule teaches you to accept your circumstances in life, detach from outside forces you can’t control and be comfortable with who you are.

I find these rules powerful because the only way to cultivate acceptance is through continued practice in your actions and your attitude. The two things we actually have control over.

And these rules give you the necessary guidelines to do just that.

It might take months to rewire your brain, but it’s well worth it.

Check them out:

1) Accept everything just the way it is.

Acceptance is perhaps the most important attitude to overcome mental challenges in life.

It’s a state of mind. There’s no destination or goal with acceptance. It’s simply the process of exercising the mind to be tolerant of anything life throws at us.

Why is it powerful?

Because instead of fighting against negative emotions like anxiety and stress, you’re actually accepting them the way they are. You’re not bitter, and you’re not creating more negativity out of your negativity.

Through acceptance you pave the path for negative emotions like anxiety to become less powerful. You’re not fighting against them and making them worse.

But to be clear: Acceptance is not the following: It’s not indifference or apathy. It does not involve giving up or not trying. It’s simply about accepting things without judging them.

It is what it is. Whatever happens happens. It’s about being patient and allowing the natural flow of things to take place.

2) Do not seek pleasure for its own sake.

As humans, we’re unhappiest when we become dissatisfied with what we have, and decide that we want more.

When we seek pleasure for pleasure’s sake, we put ourselves in an endless loop of desiring that’s only temporarily satisfied when we experience that pleasure.

But feelings don’t last forever. And before you know it, you’ll be back desiring again.

This doesn’t mean you can’t have fun and enjoy pleasure when you experience it. It just means you won’t be constantly seeking pleasure for its own sake. You appreciate what you have in every moment, and sometimes that will be pleasurable emotions.

But you also won’t be unhappy when you aren’t experiencing pleasure.

3) Do not, under any circumstances, depend on a partial feeling.

Same as above, feelings don’t last forever. Emotions are transient. You won’t be happy all the time, and wanting to be so will only make you unhappy.

4) Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.

When you think of yourself too much, you amplify your ego and your insecurities.

Happy people are the ones who focus on helping others. There’s a beautiful Chinese Proverb which describes this perfectly:

“If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

In other words: Be humble, don’t take yourself too seriously and focus on helping others.

5) Be detached from desire your whole life long.

Buddhism says that desiring leads to suffering. Why? Because when you’re desiring, you’re dissatisfied with what you have right now.

And when you get what you want, this leads you down an endless loop of desiring.

If you can forget about the idea of wanting, you can learn to be comfortable and grateful for what you have right now, which is key to inner peace.

6) Do not regret what you have done.

Regret is a useless emotion, isn’t it? You can’t change what’s happened. Yes, you can learn from what happened, but that doesn’t involve experiencing regret.

I know that sometimes we can’t help but regret things in life, but it’s important not to dwell on it. It’s useless to do so.

7) Never be jealous.

Another useless emotion. It also means you’re insecure with yourself, because you’re envious of someone else.

Instead, look inside yourself and be grateful for who you are and what you have.

8) Never let yourself be saddened by separation.

It sucks to separate from someone you want to be with. But getting sad over it won’t help you or them.

Sometimes you just need to toughen up and appreciate what you have, not what you lose.

9) Resentment and complaint are appropriate neither for oneself nor others.

Again, complaining without action doesn’t help you achieve anything. It only serves to raise your toxic energy.

And don’t let what other people do affect you as well. You’re not in control of what they do. But you are in control of how you react to what they do.

10) Do not let yourself be guided by the feeling of lust or love.

This one’s probably a controversial one for many. For me, too. I think we can all agree that you don’t want to be guided by lust. It’s similar to chasing emotions that don’t last forever and will only give you temporary fulfilment.

Love, however, is a different story. I don’t know about you, but I think that love is one of the most important emotions to be guided by. Your family is everything, whoever they are, and your life is much more fulfilled when you do whatever you can for them.

11) In all things have no preferences.

Similar to desiring, by having preferences, you’re not happy with what you have right now. You’re dissatisfied and unable to enjoy the present moment.

So if you can, try not to prefer something over something else, especially if you can’t control it.

12) Be indifferent to where you live.

If you can change where you live, then by all means go ahead. And don’t stop looking for opportunities to do so.

But besides doing that, it’s more fulfilling to appreciate where you are right now, rather than wishing it were different.

13) Do not pursue the taste of good food.

Interesting one. Focus on eating to be healthy and for nourishment. Desiring delicious food can lead to addiction and attachment. This goes for alcohol and drugs, too.

14) Do not hold onto possessions you no longer need.

It’s easy to get cluttered with junk that you don’t need. But if it’s not benefiting your life, get rid of it. More space and clear thinking is what’s needed. Not more stuff.

15) Do not act following customary beliefs.

Follow your own common sense. Do what makes sense to your own values, not what other people think. Decide for yourself.

You know what’s right and wrong. You don’t need someone else to tell you.

16) Do not collect weapons or practice with weapons beyond what is useful.

A tribute to his swordsman time, but we can apply this for our lives, too. It’s better to be an expert in one thing, than okay at everything.

17) Do not fear death.

Extremely hard to do. But it’s something none of us will escape. We can either learn to accept that our own and our close one’s time will eventually come, or fight against it causing anxiety and sadness for the rest of our lives.

18) Do not seek to possess either goods or fiefs for your old age.

What good will they do you when you’re gone? Only collect what is useful. Don’t waste your time.

19) Respect Buddha and the Gods without counting on their help.

Take responsibility for yourself. Don’t count on luck or god to pull you through. Tackle the endeavors you know are within your capabilities. Keep doing the right thing and everything else will fall into place.

20) You may abandon your own body but you must preserve your honor.

Don’t do anything that you won’t be able to live with for the rest of your life. Your actions define you, not your beliefs.

21) Never stray from the way.

Stay humble, do the right thing and always keep learning and growing.

Do We Heal Our Clients?

This article in Psychology Today touched on the wounded healer.  All of us are wounded in some way whether we admit or not.  What brings one into the healing arts be it wholistic, medical or psychological comes from our desire to help another heal.  Sometimes from knowledge about why we are who we are and the fact we did the work and healed ourselves from woundedness or we believe in helping others we can heal them and then heal ourselves.

 

This is provided for your perusal and I don’t have the answers.  You have the answers within yourself on why you choose that profession and mission in life.

Read, think upon it and find your answers.

10 Tips For Healing Your Woundedness So You Can Help Others

  1. Identify the wound.  Ask yourself what wound you seek to heal by ministering to others.
  2. Liberate your patients. It’s not fair to depend on your patients to give you a sense of self-worth, identity, inherent value, or sense of accomplishment. If you need therapyspiritual counseling, or some other kind of guidance to help you address your personal issues, get help.
  3. Be mindful of how your woundedness can bleed into your patients. If they feel they must please you in order to help you heal your own wounds, they will be focused on YOU, rather than focusing on their own self-healing.
  4. Be aware of your power. When patients seek help, they are vulnerable and easy to influence. This can be a drug for those whose wounds revolve around feelings of powerlessness or lack of control.  DO NOT take advantage of your power.
  5. Own your shit and take responsibility for your own healing. Make a plan to deal with your issues. Check in with your Inner Pilot Light and ask yourself what you need in order to heal the primary wound that may have led you to enter a healing profession.
  6. Beware of projection.  Your patients are not your alcoholic mother, your abusive ex-husband, or your vicious boss.
  7. Don’t be afraid of loving your patients. I know some people get all nutso about transference and all that crap. But love is the most healing gift you can offer your patients – and yourself.
  8. Avoid being a control freak. WAY too many people enter the healing professions in order to feel a sense of control. (Think of the bossy, screaming surgeon in the OR, ordering around the scrub tech and the nurse.) If you have control issues, deal with them in other ways. Your job is not the place to heal those wounds.
  9. Be a grown up. If you have Mommy issues or childhood traumas you haven’t addressed, face your junk. But don’t become the wounded child you once were. Don’t act out.
  10. Practice radical acts of self-love. If you know you’re enough, just the way you are, if you treat yourself like the precious child you once were, if you give yourself a break, care for your body, forgive yourself for your failings, and otherwise love and adore yourself, you won’t need your patients to feed your ego, and you will free them to focus on their own healing. Plus, you will be much better suited to care for them and nurture their optimal health and wellness.

Nobody sets out to hurt, abuse, or take advantage of those under their care. But it’s easy to slide into dangerous behavior if we’re not aware of our behavior.

Are You A Wounded Healer?

Does this sound like you or someone you know? Are you a healer—or do you think your physician or other health care provider may have an unexplored wound they’re dealing with. Are you willing to heal your own wounds so you don’t inflict your woundedness upon others?

If you are a patient or a healer committed to changing the way medicine is delivered and recieved, become a Pink Medicine Revolutionary, and I’ll share other tips I’m learning along the way.

Getting to Know Thyself : Does it get easier with time?

We all go through tragedies, challenges, deceitfulness, betrayals, supportive family and friends and or lack of them.
They say when one door closes another one opens for us.

But what if those doors are not opening then we need to search deep within our souls and truthfully find the answers.

That is what my journey is about, even at this point in time, I am still fighting the negative within me. Sometimes it seems unsurmountable and that’s when I surrender and utilize the tools I’ve been handed down to pull myself up and move out of the shadows and into the Light.

We create our world, and all of our actions either support or destroy us.

Through the healings and teachings I know the answers, but can I let go and reach that pinnacle of enlightenment that I yearn for?
