Healing with Color – Tips for Self and Home

Psychic ViewpointUncategorized

It’s been a long winter this year, and some find it hard to break out of the winter blahs and into the glory of spring. Sometimes, a little color can help. Your body is an energy system. You can slow down your heart rate or speed it up, simply by getting centered, breathing deeply and visualizing color. You can also train yourself to detect colors by taking your hand and placing it over a “color” card to determine if it’s a cool or warm color. With practice you can determine the nuances of each color.  You can also work with your hands to visualize sending out the color through your hands to help someone or even yourself.

Healing a Headache
Visualize the color yellow then take your hands and place them over your temples than place one hand on your forehead and the other on the back of the head. Picture the color yellow streaming through your hands.

Everything in moderation, as the saying goes. And so it applies to color as well. Too much of one color can have a debilitating effect.

In Ted Andrews’ book, Healing with Color, he talks about the basics of different colors, and how they can impact the human body.

  • White – Awakens creativity
  • Black – a protective color, it can be used to ground and calm extremely sensitive individuals. Use black in conjunction with white.
  • Red– stimulates. It energizes the base chakra. It energizes the blood and helps with colds and mucus ailments. Too much red can be over stimulating.
  • Orange – the color of joy and wisdom. It stimulates feelings of sociability. Orange can assist healing the spleen, pancreas, stomach, intestines and adrenals.
  • Yellow – stimulates the mental faculties. It stimulates the solar plexus. It reawakens enthusiasm for life. Helps treat depression and can benefit digestive issues.
  • Green – balances energies. Can be used to increase sensitivities and compassion. It has a calming effect for inflamed conditions of the body.
  • Blue – is cooling and relaxing. It quiets energies and has an antiseptic quality.
  • Indigo – dynamic healing color on the spiritual and physical level. Strengthens the lymph system, glands, and immune system. Blood purifier.
  • Violet – affects the skeletal system. Cleansing and purifying. Good for cancerous conditions of the body. Arthritis can be eased by violet light.
  • Pink – can be used to awaken compassion, love and purity. It eases conditions of anger and feelings of neglect. It can be used in meditation to awaken greater truths.

Shifting Energy In Your Home: The Art of Feng Shui
Sometimes the home can feel stuffy. Air seems to stagnate and there is no energy flow. Changes can be made by introducing color. Feng Shui is an anccolor wheelient Chinese art used to balance energy and create harmony in the home. Depending on how your home is positioned (does the front door of your home point East, West, North or South?) will determine how rooms should be decorated and how they should be painted. While it may seem odd that a darkened hallway should be painted orange, you will be surprised at the joy you will experience with this delightful color. Gray is a great color for an office because it energizes the individual working in it. An easy-to-read overview on Feng Shui can be found here: http://fengshui.about.com/od/fengshuicures/qt/fengshuicolor.htm. If you have not introduced Feng Shui into your environment, I highly recommend it. It’s fun to try new colors and room layouts to change the energy of your home. One tip worth considering: if you have a long hallway that has a door at the end, hang a crystal at the entry point. The reason is energy gathers at the entry point and shoots full speed to the end of the hall. Years ago, I had moved into a refurbished house and noticed a long dark hallway. I thought “this hallway needs a crystal.” When I looked down, I noticed that the floor was buckled. I was told an earthquake (this did not occur in California but Georgia!) occurred and damaged the wood floor in the hallway.  Take a look around your home and see if there are any long hallways that could benefit from a crystal to break up the energy.

To enhance energy flow: fans are good for moving energy as are pets (the ones that run around, not the ones that lay around), wind chimes can imply air flow, and there are other remedies as well. Welcome spring with a splash of new color and energy flow with yourself and your environment.

Death is Nothing at All

Psychic ViewpointUncategorized

A friend’s mother passed away today. She died shortly after being diagnosed with inoperable cancer at 2:22 p.m., a time of significance in the parlance of Angel Numbers. She had fulfilled her soul’s mission, and the angels called her home.

Some believe that when we die we simply leave the body behind and become spirit – going back to the source energy from which we’ve come. Other’s believe that we are called home to heaven, and that’s where we stay. Dr. Duncan MacDougall conducted experiments on the dying and determined that as a person passed there was a detectable loss in weight  of 21 grams; he called it the soul.

I believe that some choose to leave this plane of existence behind and literally go to another level, never looking back. Others who have passed learn quickly how to move among the levels of consciousness or planes of existence. Still others who have experienced trauma in death get lost along the way. Many realize who they can contact to get help, should they seek it, to cross to the other side.

Loved ones will sometimes send little reminders that they are still watching over us – it could be a strong scent, a bright coin or purposeful misplacement of something that was dear to them. If they cannot draw our attention in the present moment, they come to us in our dreams to let us know they are not so far away that we cannot still communicate with them.

Death is Nothing at All
by Henry Scott Holland

Death is nothing at all…
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way you always used.
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
without the ghost of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
there is absolutely unbroken continuity….
Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval,
Somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well

Past Life Exploration: Have You Been Here Before?

Psychic ViewpointUncategorized

Do you ever wonder if you have lived in the past or had a past life?

There are many people on the planet today that have lived a past life, even past lives. However, few recall these experiences. How can you tell if you have been here before? Ask yourself if a situation or place seems familiar even if you don’t recall having the experience previously. Turn off your logical mind-set for a moment and let your unconscious mind take over, prompt your unconscious mind to provide the answers – ask the question internally and then keep yourself busy doing other things to occupy conscious thought. Memories that do not exist within your conscious experience will begin to pop up. If that’s not possible, pose the question just before you go to sleep. You may receive answers – in pictures – in your dreams. Test your “memory,” and document what you see or feel. Try to focus on dates, events, the environment, weather or any catastrophic events that may have occurred during that period – see in your mind what people look like, what they are wearing, etc. Do whatever it takes to trigger a deeper memory. Then research your findings. See if there is any documented history around that moment that verifies what you’ve seen.

Try This Test
Here’s another way to discover if you have had a past life experience. You and a trusted friend should find a low table and sit cross legged on the floor on each side of the table. Turn the lights down low. Place a white candle between you and light it. Allow your gaze to relax and stare into your friend’s eyes for a while over the candlight. Talk about what you see. After a little while features will begin to change and new features will appear. Write down the things you see. Chances are you are seeing what your friend looked like in a past life. You may be surprised where the path takes you.

An Ending and a Beginning
In the mid 1980s, classes were taught in downtown Atlanta on psychic development. During one of the classes, a session on past life paris-riverseine9regression was held. The results were quite interesting. As a class participant, I was able to identify instances and experiences from a number of past lives. For example, I recalled an experience from the 1700’s in Paris. The love of my life was killed, and it was never clear to me what happened to him. By chance, I went to Paris for a weekend in 2011. Traveling on a riverboat down the Seine, I looked up as we passed beneath a bridge and almost fainted. A scene from the past played out before my eyes as my lover was robbed, stabbed in the back and thrown into the river. The next day, I returned to the bridge and released the man and the past. It was a healing moment. By letting go of the past, and any regrets, we are better positioned to welcome the present moment.

Why can’t I remember?
It’s acceptable for small children (up to age 4) to have imaginary friends and unique experiences (including thoughts of past life experiences), but as we get older those memories fade. It’s only natural to focus on what’s happening today and forget where we came from. That doesn’t mean it didn’t occur, only that we no longer remember. Because we have so many information sources available to us on the Internet today, we are seeing many more stories about children who are remembering past lives. Here are a few interesting ones:

The child who lived among the stars of Hollywood

Memories of a former life as a slave

The case of the fighter pilot

Death by fire, a woman becomes a little boy

Chances are you, too, have had a past life experience. Take time to explore the possibility.

 

It’s All In Your Head: Lessons Learned from the Seven Principles of Huna

Psychic ViewpointUncategorized

Why does this <insert problem/situation> keep happening in my life?  Sometimes the answer is simply:  What you Think about You Bring About, or better yet, Where Attention Goes Energy Flows.

Simply put: if you think about a situation hard enough, you give it a life of its own. In relationships, if we find ourselves with a partner that doesn’t meet our needs, and we dissolve the relationship but don’t release the negative aspects, chances are the same aspects will show up in a new partner. Then upon discovering that we are in a relationship that is similar to the past one we say to ourselves, “I don’t understand, why do I kImage of Paris Sculptureeep having the same kind of relationship?” Instead of focusing on the negative, switch to the positive aspects of the person because those positive aspects are what drew you to the individual in the first place. If it’s impossible to focus on anything positive, then place your attention on something else – a beautiful tree, a laughing child, the sunshine. Visualize someone coming into your life with positive aspects and steer clear of the negative.

When situations disrupt our lives, we ask ourselves, “Why Me?” One reason may be that we need a lesson to raise us to a higher level of understanding, or consciousness or connect us with people we would not otherwise meet so we can become the teacher or the student or both.

We may announce to the universe: “I am an island. I don’t need help.” Then we find ourselves depending on others due to a catastrophic accident. If we don’t take time to reflect on what has occurred and thank the universe for the lesson and MOVE ON or LET IT GO, then another situation will occur to remind us once again that we did not learn the lesson the first time. The other reason may be related to the first fundamental principal of Huna: The World Is What You Think It Is.

Eke: The World Is What It Is
Everything in our world, everything in our own reality, comes from our thoughts. We share this with friends,family, co-workers, and everyone else. According to the Huna belief, if we would change our world, we must change our thoughts. It is a waste of time and energy to try and change the outer world on our own.

SELF LOVE AND THE PRINCIPAL OF MAKEA
This concept is sometimes difficult to grasp because we as humans believe things happen TO US rather than our thoughts creating disturbances in our lives. We may even go so far as to say, “Well this person did THIS to me, I didn’t ASK for it.” People that have been raped don’t ask to be raped, certainly, but if we have thoughts that say, “I am not worthy,” the universe may deliver confirmation in a most unexpected way…

Makea: Energy Flows Where Attention Goes
Events are created wherever there is a flow of energy and attention. Focusing your attention on a particular object or idea causes the energy to flow in that direction. Whatever the nature of your thoughts is, you feel that flow in  return. Positive energy put out into the universe, means positive energy flowing back to you.

KEEP IT POSITIVE
Focusing on positive thought is not an easy task, particularly if attention is focused on all the mayhem in the world provided by daily news reports or from the posts of well-meaning friends. Take baby steps: for 15 minutes a day focus on positive things. Look around you and say: thank you flower for providing color in my world, thank you tree for providing oxygen, etc., and laugh. Laughter is healing. Researchers in Japan found that laughter actually reduced pain levels associated with arthritis. For more on the subject of laughter and how to bring more of it into your life visit:  http://www.chopra.com/ccl/lighten-up-the-healing-power-of-laughter. If you have thoughts that are self-negative, make a list of positive aspects and keep it close. When you experience feelings of self-loathing, pull out the list and reflect on the fact that you are not so bad after all.
