Little Gold Lake

Another picturesque, serene little place that was a first for me. Just beyond Gold Lake off the Gold Lakes Highway, nestled underneath a granite cliff, lies little Gold Lake. The lake is free of ice but still shows a few snow remnants melting into the shallow waters.

With waters so crystal clear, it was easy to spot rock boulders just beneath the surface. One might think the lake could easily be conquered, walking across without ever fully submerging your body. It might even dry up completely during a year of little snow and moisture, or in the later summer months. But for this trip it was perfect and well worth the flooded spots and wobbly water crossings in the slightly over 7 mile journey round trip.

Dalai Lama Wisdom

Take a break from the worries of yesterday and the fears of tomorrow and remember a little wisdom from the Dalai Lama. May it help you and bring peaceful moments into your day.

He said, “There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly live.”

The world of energy healers

It’s been quite some time since I returned to the states after spending ten month in Germany, and I am still not working. My prior place of work filed for bankruptcy while I was in Germany, leaving me with no job to return to. Second it was my health (note how I am putting it in past tense, because I would like to put this behind me and no longer have this as a current issue) that made it impossible to pursue work.

Here I was, unemployed with no health insurance, but a healthy belief that the universe and my guardian angels were watching out for me, and had my back. Some of you would view this as rather naive and unprepared. Maybe it was, but so much was bogging me down at that time, I felt I had no choice but to surrender and trust. Eventually I found the universe steering me into a direction which I now believe I was meant to take. Since I don’t trust in coincidences, I noticed the synchronicities popping up here and there as if I was suppose to find those subtle hints. It couldn’t be more obvious.

It was during a shaming journey that I saw a primitive cave painting, such as an early petroglyph. The symbol was very profound and repeated itself in various ways throughout the journey. I immediately (after the journey) did a google search and found it to be the Cho Ku Ray power symbol for Reiki. Could it be? Was this my answer to getting help with my own ailments and was it literally in my hands to make such a difference?

It was a few days later that I came across a a Reiki Master course, which was also greatly reduced in price, making it affordable for me to act upon, and secure a student platform. It was simply meant to be, how else would I explain this strange phenomenon! Everything was right under my nose and the universe made sure I find the clues. And on top of it, it provided the means to make it happen.

I jumped on the course and soon was attuned by my Reiki Master to the universal life force energy. We are born with this energy but throughout life and the many distractions that create noise in our life’s, we eventually lose our way and our signal is a little like a radio station that is not fully tuned in and filled with static. This static makes our life’s difficult and an attunement resets this energy, removing the static. Once tuned back, you might experience a spiritual detox in the form of excessive crying, maybe getting a cold, etc. which happened to me. My emotions felt very pure, very blessed to have come across this opportunity, very optimistic and just knowing that this would help me. I was so grateful.

In the meantime I have achieved my Reiki Master title/ certificate, as well as completed and certified in the 7 Chakras complete guide to your energy body course. I am excited to say the least, mainly because it has helped me a great deal in my own road of recovery, and because I can’t wait to pay it forward. Pssst: But that’s not all and I have been up to much much more since I’ve been back and I have some exciting thins to reveal to you soon.

What’s next for me is to pursue this road as an energy healer and see where it will take me. I did a few Reiki sessions already, including a long distance one and had wonderful results and feedback. What a wonderful and fulfilling feeling. There is nothing better than to shine your light bright and help others in the process of it.

What is your feel or take on this? Have you perhaps had your own experiences? I would love to hear about it and can’t wait to hear your stories.

Namaste 🙏🏼

Shower Meditation

Let’s start our week by setting some easy to follow intentions and see it all come together.

Every time you take a shower, visualize washing away your stress and anxiety. Concentrate on the feel of the water upon your skin. Envision the power of the water washing away your negative thoughts. Feel sadness, regret, anger, and depression washing right off of you. Let it all go down the drain, you’ll start feeling lighter and much more clear.

❤️🦋 have a great week

Hey Siri

Recently Mom was hospitalized because of an open wound on her leg. In all actuality it happens quite frequently since her skin is as thin as tracing paper. The slightest bump will cause an open sore that could lead to infection and not healing well due to her diabetes. She has lost a few toes this way already and it’s a scary situation for sure. Luckily she was only there over the weekend, starting Friday and being back to the nursing home by Monday. Coming to think of it, I think it was more of a safety precaution since Mom’s family physician went on vacation. He was worried Mom could develop a blood clot and in the end I think everyone was relieved to know Mom was in good hands.

This all happened during the week she was mad at me and hung up on the iPad. On top of it I got sick. Now with all of it behind us, I know that her anger towards me was fear driven about her leg, and the worries of what could happen. Calling Mom per FaceTime last Monday after the hospital, I found a completely different person. Immediately I could tell how relieved she was to be back, and that yet another scary chapter was behind her. We laughed and joked, it was a real pleasure talking to her. And then she told me a story that would send us both over on giggles.

Somehow Mom activated Siri on her iPad. Of course she has no clue what that is, for what one would use it, or how to even do it. It was an accident and I’m still unsure of what exactly Mom thinks happened. Clearly there can’t be a person stuck inside the iPad and the technology is beyond what she can comprehend at nearly 81 years of age. I wouldn’t even know how to explain it to her, but I tried anyways.

She proceeds to tell me that the iPad kept talking and talking and she just wanted peace and quiet. All I can figure is that Mom mumbled something and Siri couldn’t make out what she wanted. I’m sure Siri asked several times what she could assist Mom with. Mom mumbles back something and so the conversation between Mom and Siri continues until Mom finally has enough, and tells Siri to shut up already. 😂 But wait a minute, Siri understood that, and proceeds to tell Mom that this wasn’t a nice thing to say. (Rolling in laughter). I start cracking up as she tells me the story and Mom does as well. She puts her hand over her mouth as if she got busted saying something bad and now thinks she has to watch what she is saying because the iPad heard it and reprimanded her.

An old time favorite

Long Lake, June 2019

It was not planned to make it to Long Lake, and it seemed nearly impossible yet. Another two weeks perhaps and the trail should be more manageable I thought, fighting my way up past snow run off and washed out sections. We ended up making it further than expected that day and I knew the lake was just over that ridge, beyond that massive glacier of snow.

I couldn’t do it, and I couldn’t bare the thought to have come so close, within it’s reach, to only turn around and try again in two weeks. We crossed that glacier, by now completely soaking my shoes and even giving it some new attractive mud color prior to the glacier.

But then it happened, just beyond the ridge and this was the first glimpse of Long Lake. “Hello gorgeous, it’s been two years I have seen you”.

Perspective

Sometimes it’s just a matter of how we perceive things. Do we see everything in the same cookie cutter shape, or do we dare to explore out of the box options? Do we perceive bad experiences as victims or do we look for the silver lining and the lessons that can be learned? Do we accept responsibility or are we rather place the blame somewhere else? And what the unjust things that happen from time to time? When people do you wrong? Are you quick to judge and retaliate, or can you see the actions that are born out of pain, with you being caught in the middle of it? Most of the times it’s not even personal, just bad timing.

Being flexible with our views can definitely help us with everyday life, maybe even change our world.

Strawberry Full Moon

Picture taken from google

Last night I got to attend my second full moon drumming circle. It’s a beautiful gathering of people, that come together to celebrate the full moon and let go of any feelings and energy that no longer has room in their life. It’s a time to let go and ground that energy back to Mother Earth.

The drumming starts with the heartbeat, a sound we first heard in the womb. A sound that connects us back to Mother Earth. As you relax into your breath, your body becomes lighter and lighter. You can feel the energy moving everywhere as it fills itself with peace and tranquility. By giving yourself permission to take the time to experience these very moments, your heart is full of gratitude, and by now you are fully relaxed. The daily hustle and bustle noise quiets down, and soon all that is left behind are the sounds of nature and the chirping birds. You hear crystal clear, almost as if you have never heard it with such clarity and purpose before.

Through it all, the “heartbeat” continues as you feel the vibrations from the drum in every nook and cranny of your body. It is powerful and healing at the same time.

It is definitely a neat experience to attend a drumming circle if you have the chance. Your experience will be empowering, while leaving you feeling good about what you no longer want to manifest. But either way, you can still do your own full moon celebration and give back what no longer serves you. Have you ever thought about what those things would be?
