Heart Thoughts

Your heart is the center of your power. I have learned that you can create easily and effortlessly when you let your thoughts come from the loving space of your heart. Here are a few Heart Thought Suggestions.

I Am Free to Be Me

When we experience sadness, or get upset, give yourself a physical release. There are several methods you can use to release these feelings in positive ways. You can scream in the car with the windows closed. You can kick pillows, make noise and say all the things you want to say. You can scream into a pillow, run around a track, or play a game like tennis to release the energy and those physical tensions you store in your body!

I Create Wonderful New Beliefs about Myself

These are some beliefs that can really help you in your life if you think or say them every day:

I am always safe.

Everything I need to know is revealed to me.

Everything I need comes to me in the perfect time sequence.

Life is a joy and filled with love.

I am willing to change and to grow.

 

It’s Only a Thought and a Thought Can Be Changed

How many times have you refused to think a positive thought about yourself? Well, you can refuse to think negative thoughts about yourself, too. People say, “I can’t stop thinking a thought.” Yes, you can!

You have to make up your mind that it’s what you’re going to do. You don’t have to fight your thoughts when you want to change things. When that negative inner voice comes up, you can affirm, “Thank you for sharing, and I’m choosing to do something else. I don’t want to buy into that anymore, I want to create another way of thinking.”

Acknowledge your thoughts, don’t fight them and go beyond them.

Cooking for your Spirit- ThanksGIVING

In honor of the essence of Thanksgiving, we came up with a few new creative ways to express gratitude to get into the Thanksgiving spirit. Gratitude has been linked to everything from improving happiness, body image, sleep, life, you name it. Instead of consuming spirits we Celebrate this year in the True Spirit of Thanksgiving! It is a gentle reminder to love those at our tables and beyond.

For some a little planning can go a long way especially when you have a history of disordered eating. In the midst of this food-focused holiday event could be far from a relaxing night with friends and family. It is hard to separate events being based in food from the part that is about connecting with people. For those who are trying to prevent triggers to an internal battle with bulumia, binge eating, and anorexia, the holidays are certainly among those experiences to be vulnerable and to know that you are not alone.

Eating disorders often bring about an internal fracturing of mind, body and spirit. It may feel like you have been trapped in your mind by eating disorder thoughts that disconnect you from your body and spirit. Recovery involves reintegrating the mind, body, and spirit, creating an internal sense of wholeness. To embrace this holiday season with the intention of healing  Cooking for your Spirit    is a healthy guide that lends courage and strength when struggling, and gives a way to express gratitude when all is well.

Thanksgiving Blessings,

love, #krishna

Happy Birthday Krishnamacharya!

Krishnamacharya (the grandfather of ALL yoga that you see out there these days) was born November 18, 1888. If he would be living today he would turn 129!

As an expression of gratitude here are a few things I’ve learned from him, without ever knowing him, and that inspire me daily:

Messenger of Yoga

As a teacher he kept a low profile but that did not mean he stopped propagating the message of yoga, he just did it wisely.  Matter of fact, when A.G. Mohan was to go onto a yoga conference in the 70’s that was the direct advise that Krishnamacharya gave him: “Propagate Yoga Wisely”

He was picky of the students he took on because he knew that they would reflect on him and wanted more than anything to please the wishes of his guru Bramacharya, who asked him to go into the world and propagate yoga. That he did.

Every yoga teacher out there has been influenced by Krishnamacharya whether we know it or not.

He took Yoga seriously and practiced all his life.

Krishnamacharya inspires me to get on the mat everyday. His determined eye gaze seems to pervade all around the place where I practice, I know he is watching!

Cleansing Crystals and Gemstones – HOW TO?

There are many methods today for cleaning crystals and gemstones in order to increase the effects of their metaphysical energies.

Gemstones are believed to have an extensive memory, remembering where they’ve been, who they’ve touched, and all forces and energies that have surrounded them. A crystal or gemstone can pass onto others any energy that it has stored within it.  Often, gemstones need to be cleansed of any unwanted energies that they may have collected from you, from others, or from the environment.

Healers, Light workers, take care to clean their healing stones after each use because the stones might take pain (both physical and emotional) into themselves and pass it onto others if they have not been cleansed of those energies between uses. If a stone has absorbed negative energies, it may not work well for whatever purpose.

Methods for cleansing stones:
Fire – carefully pass the stone through the flame of a candle several times until you intuitively feel it has been cleared. The fire will burn away any negative energy. (Always use care when dealing with fire to ensure safety for yourself and environment).
Smudging – carefully pass the stone through the smoke of a white sage smudge stick several times until you intuitively feel it has been cleared. Read more about smudging gemstones here….
Water – rinse the stone in moving water. This can be done in one of three ways:
by holding the stone in a river or brook (placing it into a mesh bag will make it easier to hold onto) for several minutes,
by leaving it out in the rain for several hours,
by holding it under the faucet for several minutes. The water will wash away negative energy and return it to the Earth where it can be neutralized.
DO NOT USE WATER on soft stones such as angelite, some calcites, howlite, aragonite, azurite, dolomite, malachite, selenite, sulphur, etc. as it may dissolve the stone to a greater or lesser degree.

Earth – bury the stone in the ground for one full day, placing a marker over it so as to be able to find it later, or bury the stone in a pot of ground soil. (Do not use potting soil as it has been treated.) The soil will absorb negative energy, disperse it, and transmute it into positive energy. Stones feel very comfortable in the earth as it is where they formed and grew.
Air – smudge the stone on all sides with a sage smudge stick, or with dried sage or cedar, or pass it through the smoke of sandalwood or sage incense. Sage is a very effective cleanser, neutralizing negative energy and transmuting it into positive energy.
Sea salt – the most common method of cleansing stones is with water and sea salt. You can do this by placing the stone in a mesh bag and rinsing it in the ocean for several minutes, or by soaking the stone for several hours in a glass of water with a pinch of sea salt. CAUTIONS: *Salt may damage the finish on some stones. * Water may damage soft or friable stones. *Placing a stone in dry sea salt (without the water) may damage its electromagnetic field.
Light – place a stone in bright sunlight, either outside or on a windowsill, for at least an hour. NOTE: solar energy may be too violent for some stones, having been formed within the Earth devoid of any light. CAUTION: over time, sunlight may fade the color of some stones. An alternate, and gentler, method is to place the stone in moonlight for at least one night under a full moon, longer if the moon is not full.

Good luck! All cleansing methods are compatible with each other; so use whatever combination feels right for you and your stone. Intuitively, using a combination of methods is especially good for cleansing new stones, clearing stones for programming, and cleansing and recharging heavily drained stones. Combinations cleanse the stones more effectively and sometimes more quickly.
