Affirmations For Change

Tribal Wolf Patterns Colored by SpringwolfCreating Positive Thought Patterns

We all set up recurring thought patterns in our subconscious that affect how we live our life. These patterns could be self doubt, a lack of confidence, or emotional perspectives based on how you interact with others. These thoughts can come from societies preconceived notions about the kind of person you are, from family and friends, and from your own views about situations you have experienced in your life.

Allowing these thought patterns to reside in your subconscious, allows them to dictate your choices in life, which at times can be detrimental to self-growth and enlightenment.

One way to help bring about change in your life is to focus on replacing negative thinking with positive thinking through affirmations. Instead of “I hate being fat” for instance, start telling yourself “I am beautiful” or “I am working to become the healthy person I want to be”.

Affirmations are a way of reprogramming the subconscious to think differently and to automatically react in a more positive way when trigger situations occur in your life. Continue reading

Evolving The Spirit

Karma isn’t the only thing that can set up thought patterns and actions in your life. How you think affects the way you feel. Our own thought patterns effect the health of our body, mind and spirit.

When you’re creating an uneasiness or “dis-ease” in your body, by the way you think, feel and approach each situation in your life, you create energy that will manifest in your physical body. So each emotional thought pattern is really an underlying “cause” of a physical illness, or emotional situation in your life.

We all set up recurring thought patterns in our subconscious that affect how we live our life. These patterns could be self doubt, a lack of confidence, or emotional perspectives based on how you interact with others. These thoughts can come from societies preconceived notions about the kind of person you are, from family and friends, and from your own views about situations you have experienced in your life.

If you are a person who has been through many failed relationships, you could develop a thought pattern that causes you to expect failure in any new relationship that comes your way. Which is a way to set up a self fulfilling prophecy, even when your own “expected perception” is wrong. Continue reading

An Introduction To Usui Reiki

Shamanistic Healing

An Introduction

Our own thought patterns effect the health of our body. Each emotional thought pattern is really an underlying “cause” of a physical illness. In other words, how you think, creates how you feel. This concept has been the basis of Shamanistic healing modalities around the world. It’s not new, and it’s not unique. But it’s also not something you find very often in Western Medicine.

Understanding the physical illness can help you address the underlying cause and thereby riding the body of the disease. That doesn’t mean that you can forgo mainstream medicine all together. Sometimes when you don’t listen to the messages of your body; the issue progresses and requires mainstream medical attention.

But these metaphysical/shamanistic concepts can help you understand why the illness formed, and how you can include metaphysical practices to help support the medical treatment from your physician.

There are many books on the market that describe this system of understanding and belief, but for me, one of the best books on the market for healers is called “Heal Your Body” by Louise Hay, from Hay House Publishing. Ms. Hay created one of, if not the definitive source for emotional causes, their corresponding illness and a metaphysical affirmation to help the individual deal with the originating cause. She has an excellent way of making the concepts understandable for healers and puts the perspective into words. I highly recommend her books.

These concepts will help any healer with their chosen mode of Metaphysical/Shamanistic healing. Be it Reiki, Rolfing, Crystal or Light healing, the basics begin the mind.

Meditation Prayers

Wolf Prayers & BlessingsPrayers For Opening, Healing, Blessing, Divination and Closing

The following are just a few examples of the prayers you can incorporate into your visualized meditations. As with any spiritual dogma, the recital of a prayer should feel comfortable to the speaker. It should be spoken with meaning and not just as a group of words that come before or after a spiritual event. Your intent is what gives a prayer power, so keep a positive outlook and a loving thought in your heart as you recite the prayer.

To some people how they address the prayer is the most important part of expressing their values and beliefs. Some prefer God, others Goddess, some use specific names of a Deity. Others like inclusive labels like Great Spirits, Divine Universe and so on. Choose what fits the Divine presence in your life. Continue reading

The Reiki Principles

Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Precepts

Reiki is a Japanese word translated as “Universal Life Energy” by Hawayo Takata.
She brought the possibility of a relationship with this energy to us through Usui Shiki Ryoho, a healing system founded by Mikao Usui in the early part of the 1900’s. In 1973 Hawayo Takata, a Hawaiian woman of Japanese decent, was the only Reiki Master of the Usui Shiki Ryoho system in the world and was considered to be its Grand Master. She was also the first person to bring Usui Reiki to the United States after becoming a Master in 1938, teaching the system at the University of Hawaii.

Takata trained 21 Reiki Masters before her death in 1980. One of those Masters was Rev. Beth Gray, who was my first Reiki teacher for Reiki I and II. I have been a practicing Reiki Healer since 1989. I became a Reiki Master Channel in 1996.

Because of the evolution of Reiki around the world, some good and some not so good, the Principles given to all Reiki students has evolved and changed over time. Some call the Principles a Motto. A Motto is a short sentence or phrase chosen as encapsulating the beliefs or ideals guiding an individual. Where as a Principle is a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning. For the traditional Usui Reiki Channel, the Principles are a guiding force in our every day life, it is a fundamental truth within the Reiki healing system. So I’m not real fond of calling the Principles, a “motto”. Continue reading

Sunday Homily: Forgive and Forget to Heal

BestRevengeThe Best Revenge

Thought is energy. To create it, use your imagination. – Einstein

Now I’ve talked a lot about this concept and how we can use our thoughts to make positive changes in our day. To turn things around and endure the challenges life throws at us. How your thoughts really do create your day, week, year and lifetime is all up to you. So think positive thoughts and be mindful through out your day.

But what happens when the actions of others hurt your heart and drill into your mind? How often have you allowed the baggage of the past to impact your current events or situations with others that make you think of that person who caused you harm? Continue reading

A Homily: How Do You Know You’re Healed

Empowered

Empowered Healing

The Road To Recovery

Yesterday a fellow Minister asked a question that got me thinking. “How do you personally know that you have transcended a challenging or stressful situation?”

I interpret the question of transcended to mean, when do you know you have overcome the situation where real deep healing can begin and take place? What’s the point where you can forgive, let go and move on to heal yourself from within?

I think it’s different for each person. We all go through Trials, Trauma and Grief in our own way. But the healing process or phases of healing are generally the same regardless of the challenge or situation. Whatever inspires us to move through those phases can be as varied as the number of people on the planet. Real healing isn’t a moment in time, it’s a process that can take years. but it does have an end point of sorts.

I wrote an article many years ago that goes into much greater detail about this process: Dealing With Trials & Grief: Trials, Trauma & Grief (on SpringsHaven.com) in case you’re interested.

Basically the phases can be summed up as:
Shock / Acknowledgement; Denial / Acceptance; Guilt / Depression / Anger; Forgiveness; Hope / Action and Letting Go

When you’ve lived through the struggle and found yourself out the other side, that’s when the real healing begins. How long we spend in each phase of the process is up to the individual. But it can also aide or slow down the overall healing if we rush through or dwell too long in one healing phase. Continue reading

Where Do I Start?

Compassion and Healing

Putting Your Passion Into Practice

It seems many people are deciding to make changes in this world of economic woes. Following their spiritual passion and turning that pull or calling into a career.

But where do you get started? How do you find the right certification or degree program for your passion?

No matter what you do in life, you’re going to spend a good of time and potentially money on your calling. You don’t want to waste it on someone you thought was qualified to teach and later discovered they weren’t what they claimed.

Sadly this is easy to do in the spiritual world. There is no oversight or governing body that makes these checks and balances for you. You’re going to have to do it for yourself. Word of mouth is usually a great way to find a teacher. But remember, no one is ever universally liked. So you’re going to have to weigh the negative reviews with the positive ones. Continue reading
