The Universal laws in action…

labyrinthThis morning during my spiritual development time, I read the following which reminded me of the importance of living by universal laws rather than the laws put before us by the world. This is what it said…

“If we want to live the life of Truth, we must obey the Universal
laws. Our well-being or otherwise depends on whether
we do or do not abide by them.”

So I took a look back at what I had learned a while ago about Universal Laws. It was written by Deepak Chopra. I have a habit of forgetting what I have learned and then trying to reinvent the wheel. Yet, these laws are so relevant to our everyday life, to living in a way that is loving to ourselves, to others and the Creator.

We as human beings function according to the truths and rules of society and those we made ourselves while growing up. Our souls obey only the laws of the universe, also known as the spiritual laws. If our truths and those of the universe are not in alignment, it creates frustration, obstacles, stagnation or literally a cosmic slap in the face.  The laws of the universe are based on Love.

Most of our human truths are based in fear and fear is the root of all evil. The moment we integrate more of the universal truths into our life, the more we flow with our soul purpose and with the energies of the universe.

Deepak Chopra speaks of these Universal laws:
1. The law of willingness
2. The law of resistance
3. The law of action
4. The law of request
5. The law of gratitude
6. The law of attention
7. The law of attraction

I would suggest that you write what you think each of these laws means for you and over the next couple of weeks we will look at what it is we have found out. This is a lovely time to share our insights. Feel free to email me at sacredsutine@gmail.com and we can put our collective thoughts together for next week.

In love, light and harmony

Breathe in…Breathe out…Aah!

breathe in and outToday I would like to focus on our breath. We take our breathing for granted and yet without breathing, we do not live. (Obvious, I know, but then why do we breathe so badly, robbing our bodies of vital, life giving oxygen?)

Through breath control we can regulate and direct the flow of energy through our body and auric field. Any good exercise includes breath regulation. Healers breath strongly and deeply to increase their energy and power for healing.

Many people in today’s world do not breathe deeply and use only the upper chest for breathing. This keeps the energy field weaker than it could be. Deep breathing from our diaphragm is automatic in children, but as we begin to block our feelings, so we cut down on our breath. Holding our breath or dampening our breath is the best way to stop feelings and to anaesthetize ourselves. The lungs are associated with freedom. If we dampen our breathing or let the chest collapse, we feel sadness. Our shallow breathing is related to our feelings of being trapped in a world we cannot control and feel very unsafe and unfulfilled in.

Breathing fully and deeply with our diaphragms helps us feel the power to regain our freedom and works to release the spirit of fear in which we are all held in this age.

alternate breathingA simple breathing exercise:
Stand with your knees bent, legs at shoulder width, so that your knees come over your feet; or sit upright in a chair with only the lower part of your back supported.
Relax.
With your right index finger, hold your left nostril closed. Take a deep breath in through your right nostril.
Hold it.
Close your right nostril with your right thumb and release your index finger from your left nostril. Now breathe out through the left nostril.
Hold your breath.
Close your left nostril with your right index finger.
Release your right nostril and breathe out.
Repeat this breathing while pulling your diaphragm down so that your lower abdomen thrusts out on your in breath filling your whole chest with air.
Now you can add a simple mantra if you choose for each in and out breath – freedom, power, health.
When you get used to the feeling of deep breathing, you can do it through both nostrils any time.
Hopefully, it will become a healthy habit.

“It has to be the Reiki!”

feet and reikiToday I received a very positive, Reiki affirming letter from a past Reiki client who became a student and has now continued on her chosen path of healing… Reiki is life-giving on all levels. Thank you Jessica for sharing.

No one can say it better than Jessica herself…

Hi Sue,

As per our discussion on my facebook post:

I would really like to thank you for your training in Reiki, and assistance in tuning me in energetically; and guiding me to connect to intuition, body, mind, and soul.

Though I was trained on how to pick up on physical problems in Reflexology, I truly do believe that my Reiki training has laid an incredible foundation for my Reflexology; and possibly also for any other alternative therapies that I may learn in future!

When I started my case studies I was excited and anxious,thinking “Okay, I’m going to have to be patient here, I’m sure I will start picking up the signs with more and more practise”.  However, I was astounded at the rate that I was tuning in from the first client!  And…I was able to often give detailed accuracy on physical problems as I worked on their feet.

JessicaI thought to myself, “It has to be the Reiki!”

Thank you so much for all you have taught me Sue.  I would like for you to please share my account with your students, old and new. Training in energy healing can be very helpful in other hands on modalities.

Much Appreciated!
Jess

Energize your space…Which colours do I need?…

Chakra candles 3Colour is essential for our health. We need all the colours to be emotionally, physically and spiritually well. Each colour vibrates at its own frequency and plays a specific role in our well-being.

Here follows the seven basic colours of the rainbow and how each colour contains different properties for health.

Red: Vitality, Courage, Self-confidence, Stimulation, Energy, Assertiveness.
Use when you need to meet a demanding day, or when you feel drained of energy. The colour red provides the power from the earth and gives energy on all levels. It connects us to our physical body. Everything that is to be commenced needs the life vitality of red.

ORANGE: Happiness, Confidence, Resourcefulness, Warmth, Optimism, Creativity.
Brings joy to our workday and strengthens our appetite for life! Orange is the best emotional stimulant. It connects us to our senses and helps to remove inhibitions and makes us independent and social.

YELLOW: Wisdom, Clarity, Self-esteem, Joy, Success, Mental Clarity.
Gives us clarity of thought, increases awareness, and stimulates interest and curiosity. Yellow energy is related to the ability to perceive and understand. The yellow energy connects us to our mental self.

GREEN: Balance, Love, Self control, Nature, Harmony, Heart.
Cleanses and balances our energy, to give a feeling of renewal, peace and harmony. Green connects us to unconditional love and is used for balancing our whole being.

BLUE: Knowledge, Health, Decisiveness, Communication, Truth, Loyalty.
This is a mentally-relaxing colour. Blue has a pacifying effect on the nervous system and brings great relaxation. Ideal for sleep problems, and hyper-active children. Connects us to holistic thought, and gives us wisdom and clarity, enhancing communication and speech.

INDIGO: Intuition, Mysticism, Understanding.
The indigo energy connects us to our unconscious self, and gives us the experience of being part of the whole universe. Strengthens intuition, imagination, psychic powers, and increases dream activity.

VIOLET: Beauty, Creativity, Inspiration.
The violet energy connects us to our spiritual self bringing guidance, wisdom and inner strength. It enhances artistic talent and creativity.

There are of course exceptions to these colours. You may have a negative memory associated with a specific colour, and so it may mean something different to you. But that is a whole story on its own.

Chakra candles: I use the chakra candles when I want to bring more of a certain colour into my awareness, or when I have friends or clients requesting Distance Reiki for specific difficulties in their lives (Physical, Emotional, Mental or Spiritual).
Chakra candles 1
Here is one example of how I use all the candles together. The rose quartz in the centre represents the people that I am sending Distance Reiki to (It really is just a visual reminder for me). When sending to more than one person, or to a person who is very ill, I light all the candles in sequence from the purple down to the red.

Another way in which I use the candles is when I am wanting specific help on a particular day. And on a day like today, writing blogs and trying to be ‘Oh so creative’, this yellow candle helps clear the mind and bring mental clarity.

There is so much more that can said about about colour and chakras, but we will leave that for another day.

Sending lots of Reiki love from me to you.

I’ve got joy deep down in my heart…Let’s access it!

Heart chakraThe year has begun and what better way to start it than with a loving gift to yourself. We could all do with a little more joy in our lives. Sometimes the stresses and worries of everyday life can seem overwhelming. By connecting deeply with our emotional heart we can learn to relax and celebrate life.

Joy is a quality of the heart that happens when your body, mind and heart all function in harmony. When you are joyful your body is relaxed, your mind is calm and your heart is overflowing with energy, love and peace.

1. Sit relaxed with your eyes closed. Breathe deeply a few times and sigh on each out breath.

2. Place your hands on the middle of your chest and bring to mind a past or current situation that has caused or is causing you pain or suffering. Breathe in and welcome the feeling. If tears come, just let them happen. Accept any emotion that arises and allow yourself to move deeply into the simple energy of the feeling, without the mind putting labels or judgements on it.

3. Then, as you breathe out, reconnect with a feeling of peace, love or joy. Allow the out breath to carry the blessings of peace, joy and love.
