A forum for all of those open to balancing their Chakras, enhancing their yoga practice and ensuring optimum holistic health


Developed thousands of years ago by Tibetan monks to slow aging, increase energy, calm the mind and strengthen the body, the 5 Tibetan Rites are once-secret, ancient yoga-like poses .

The secret to the 5 Tibetan Rites was unveiled in the 1930’s when a retired British army officer discovered a remote Tibetan monastery where the monks were rumored to have discovered the legendary Fountain of Youth. The remarkably old, yet amazingly healthy monks claimed that the secret to reversing aging lay in the five special movements they performed daily. The officer learned these exercises from the monks and taught them to Peter Kelder, who documented them in the book “The Ancient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth.”

Practitioners reported improvements in strength, endurance, and energy, relief from joint pain and headaches, better memory and vision, weight loss and even a more youthful appearance.

According to Jo Caron, a certified Kripalu yoga instructor in Hawaii, the 5 Rites were meant to stimulate the energy centers of the body, the chakras, by speeding up and coordinating their spin. She recommends focusing on each chakra during a repetition of the exercises for increased benefits. Activating the chakras stimulates all the glands of the endocrine system, so the 5 Rites in effect, benefit the body’s overall functioning and aging process. The man who brought these 5 Rites to the West, stated that, “Performing the 5 Rites stimulates the circulation of essential life energy throughout the body.”

DreamDanceIs there a question inside yourself, something important that needs resolution or requires guidance?

Put some slow, instrumental music on in the background, close your eyes and dance in an open space – doing a chakra dance to find your answer(s).

From the novel, FILL THE SKY, by Katherine Sherbrooke, I’ve paraphrased a chakra dance meditation done by the characters that brings them the resolution needed:

Red is the color of the first chakra, our base, our security. Let a bright red light shine on your question. Sway with the music, moving your hips and focus on the emotions brought up by your question.

Orange is the color of the sacral chakra, the chakra of sensuality. Breathe in the color orange. Relax into the rhythm of the music. Let your question and the emotions it brings with it relax with you as you let your body move however it wants. Feel the beauty of life.

Yellow is the color of the solar plexus chakra. It is all about your inner power, your personal will. Embrace your own power. Let it move you. Bring attention to your solar plexus area as you move your center. Listen to your answer and then tuck it away.

Now, bring awareness to your heart, bathing it in the color green. Let your heart be open to love and peace, forgiveness, trust. Surrender to the music. Ask your question again from the core of your heart. Now dance.

Move your awareness to your throat chakra – the color is blue. Hold space to speak your own truth. Let your voice be heard. Make noise, let the sound come free. Listen for your answer.

Now focus on the third eye chakra, the center of intuition, insight and inner wisdom. Put the question into the purple light of the third eye.

End by bringing your awareness to the golden light right at the top of your head, at the crown chakra, to your portal to a higher source. Bring your question into that light. This chakra is our connection to endless possibility and divine perfection.

Now lie down and listen for answers in the form of words, images, feelings.

Feel your breath rise from your root chakra up to your crown chakra, weaving together the answers given by your chakras. You may have gotten 7 answers, you may have only gotten one.

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-6-21-15-amThis beautiful meditation was experienced by the characters in the novel, FILL THE SKY at the end of a long journey to Ecuador for healing with local shamans. While one of them needed to heal from cancer, her two close friends also found healing in their mind, body and spirit.

Author Katherine Sherbrooke encourages readers to think and feel in new and refreshing ways. Her tale is one of  facts vs. intuition, mind vs. heart, action vs. being, a safe persona vs. self-discovery, Big Pharma vs. ancestral medicine and, above all, the healing power of love.

According to Sherbrooke, “Each of my three main characters in the book grapples with a complex question in her life that has arisen because of the choices she has made in the past and some level of confusion about the path she has before her. I hope women who read the book will find a bit of themselves in one or more of these characters and perhaps be a little more gentle with themselves for not having charted the perfect course, and for not having all the answers going forward. In the end, self-discovery is a wonderfully hopeful exercise. We need not be stuck in old patterns that don’t serve us well. I truly believe we all have the internal wisdom, even though it is sometimes buried very deeply, to heal old wounds and find the joy in what comes next.”

Fill the Sky is available now on Amazon and is a perfect read for the New Year and an inspiration for new ways of thinking. For more information, please see http://www.kasherbrooke.com.

I agree with Dr. Abrams, but how do we become bodywise? Look to your chakras. They give you clues where stress is sabotaging your health resolutions (in the past and for the New Year), and where you need to nurture yourself.

To share the best stress-busting techniques I’ve learned over the last 20 years along with the best way to nurture each chakra, I’m offering you a FREE download of The Chakra Energy Diet: The Right Food, Relaxation, Yoga & Exercise To Look and Feel your Best! through Sunday, January 8.

CHAKRA ENERGY FOODS

You increase your energy when you eat food as close to its natural state as possible (not processed with additives you can’t even pronounce). So what should you eat?

First, see where stress is impacting your body and which chakra center needs to be strengthened. Learning more about the chakra system can help you determine what foods YOU personally need to ADD to nourish yourself, banish stress, and help you achieve your optimal weight.

THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET helps you determine where you are lacking balance and how to regain it.

Are your finances in trouble? Are you feeling insecure? Do you need to perform better at work and get that raise or promotion? Strengthen your 1st or Root Chakra.

Do you want to spice up your sex life or feel more passionate and creative? Unblock your Sacral Chakra.

Want to feel more self-confident and powerful in achieving your goals? Strengthen your Solar Plexus Chakra.

Want to feel more love, be able to forgive past grievances, and connect better with your family, friends and co-workers? Work on your Heart Chakra.

Afraid of public speaking? Want to be able to express your truth and be understood? Balance your Throat Chakra.

Want more inspiration on which path you should take in life? Want to increase your intuition and psychic abilities? Open your Third Eye Chakra.

Want to feel at one with all there is? More peace, harmony and connection to spirit? Work on your Crown Chakra.

You can balance all your chakras by eating a rainbow of colors… THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET contains full-color photos of my favorite recipes.

Using instant “stress-busting” techniques shared in the book, combined with eating more real food, will help you feel both more calm and more energized. And when you drop the excess stress, and make more conscious food choices, you’ll drop any excess weight, and feel and look better too.

Chakra SecretsThere’s no better way to share the holiday spirit than to share a tale encompassing all my actions and emotions – good and bad – with a happy ending and an instant healing technique everyone can use. So, I invite you to download a FREE copy of CHAKRA SECRETS through Friday, December 23.

Here’s a review of the book by a reader on Amazon.com:

 Chakra Balancing, Past Lives, Yoga and More!

“Began this book at Midnight, read straight through until 4 a.m. and waited until the light of day to review.

All of the cliches fit: cliff hanger, couldn’t put it down, fast-paced, brilliant writing…yes, all that with an important message: life is the same for everyone, we hurt, we grieve, we suffer, we have moments of joy and passion, and we are all subject to the same feelings.

We are born and re-born both physically, as in reincarnation, and spiritually, as…

Healing Energy Still Needed at Standing Rock and Around the World

Although many consider December 5 a day of victory for the protesters at Standing Rock with the easement denial of the Dakota Access Pipeline, protectors and natives warn that this is only the beginning. The same day the easement was denied, Energy Transfer Partners released a statement basically disregarding everything Obama said.

Gene Stone, a 70-year-old environmentalist, a descendent of a Cheyenne grandmother, and a veteran, is still at Standing Rock, according to a report in OCWEEKLY. He says he is mostly concerned about the President-elect’s impact because, “Now that someone is taking over the presidency who’s built a group … who don’t believe in climate change, it’s very crucial to be aware of the oneness with all parts of creation. That is why this movement is so important. We are supposed to be the caretakers of this planet.”

My last several posts have offered advice on how to send prayers and healing energy to Standing Rock and other situations and people who need love and assistance. Now this…

Harriette Knight, a Master Healer, Psychic Medium and Author, reminds us all how to be Lightworkers:

lightworker-candle

Right now, all Lightworkers are working overtime to hold the space for an easy transition into this new way of being. Who are the Lightworkers? If you are reading this, then you are, of course.

Every Being on the planet has been called to do what they came here to do. You are present at this time to fulfill an agreement, and you must not shirk your responsibilities.

Yes, it is daunting. Yes, you are tired. Yes, you thought you were done being a revolutionary, but alas, your work is not done. You have been called to action, called to wake up, and called to join together to fight the good fight. The fight for love.

Who would believe the fight for love could be so challenging?

You must first remember that you are not alone. You are never alone. You must know it, you must believe it, you must live it, and you must breathe it. You are never, ever alone.

Secondly, you can truly help all those you are connected to. Who are you connected to? EVERYONE! We are all connected. We are ONE.

Do you have to quit your job? No. Do you have to join a club? No. Do you have to change who you are? No. You simply need to continue to be your true authentic self. Practice self-care. Nurture yourself. Take time for yourself. You are harnessing your energy to stand strong. You are a Lightworker, after all. You’ve got this!

How can we help each other and the planet?

Take a deep breath. This is a breath for you. Acknowledge that you matter. Acknowledge that your voice is important. Acknowledge that you are being heard.

Next, take a deep breath for everyone else. For those who feel they cannot breathe right now. Take a breath and acknowledge that you are helping them breathe. We are in this together.

Now, in your mind’s eye, acknowledge that love is everywhere. It is in your breath, your friends, your family, your neighborhood, your city, your state, your country, your planet.

As you picture this blanket of love, fully embrace that it warms your heart, your soul, your purpose, and it is spreading out and comforting all of us on the planet and the planet itself.

We are ONE. And we are powerful. We are an energy source like no other and when plugged in, the vibration can be raised.

It starts with YOU. You have the power.

Breathe in love for yourself. Breathe out peace, calm, and security. Breathe in love for everyone. Breathe out a blanket of love keeping us safe and protected.

You are not alone.

You are a Lightworker.

We know the STANDING ROCK protestors will need to continue their efforts through the cold winter since Energy Transfer Partners refuse to quit drilling. Do you feel they or others in the world are being treated unfairly and YOU WANT TO HELP? Look at your own emotions to practice this Healing Technique from Joseph Drumheller:the-curious-mind

Healing Technique – The Curious Mind

The following technique can be used on yourself and others, even if they are at a distance.

In over two decades in my walk as a healer, I’ve learned suppressed emotion from the past is one of the premier contributors to our suffering. Of the countless techniques effective in releasing suppressed emotion, none are as effective in their simplicity as The Curious Mind.

The Curious Mind naturally cultivates a certain level of necessary detachment between you and the emotion. All of a sudden it’s not your anger, hurt, or depression; it’s only an emotion you’re experiencing. In other words, your suppressed emotions are not you, they’re only something that’s happening to you. As you will experience, this creates a beneficial space between you and the emotion—a very helpful gap that enhances the release process.

Try This: Start with a clear-cut intention to heal a specific suppressed emotion completely. Sit or lie in a comfortable position and enter a deeply relaxed state. Next, feel the emotion in your body, as related to the area of life (or person) you’re trying to heal. It may be rage in your head (Crown Chakra), heaviness in your heart (Heart Chakra), tension in your stomach (Solar Plexus Chakra), etc. It should come readily. If it doesn’t, just pretend you can feel it (remember, the imagination is real, so pretending works). If you get bombarded with mind chatter or distracting thoughts, just let them come and go like watching clouds drifting by in the sky.

Next, simply pay attention to the emotion as you experience it. Be curious. Say to yourself, something like, “Oh, isn’t that interesting. I feel rage in my head, how curious.” As you focus on that experience, you’ll begin to feel a weakening, softening, or letting go of the emotion.

Now, here’s where everyone begins to differ, so you’ll need to develop you own method. You may feel the emotion as it begins to spin or swirl and move out of your body. It may start to dissolve or let go. It may create interesting sensations in your body like tingling, warmth, or deep peace. Whatever happens, keep your focus on what’s taking place. Don’t wallow in the emotion but stay with it, until it’s gone.

That’s it; the suppressed emotion is gone. If it returns, it will come back with less intensity and less frequency. Then go through the process again. It’s like lighting a log on a fire. Keep burning it, until it’s nothing but ash.

Many thanks to Joseph Drumheller for this great technique. Joseph is an award-winning author and energy healer from Washington State. He’s conducted over 2,000 sessions since 1991 and worked six years at a cancer treatment center in Bellingham, WA, honing his craft as a healer. His books include non-fiction, award-winning fiction, and now children’s books. See more at: www.josephdrumheller.com

With all the anger and divisiveness following the recent election, and many people needing peaceful resolution in their lives at this time, The Curious Mind can help us regain peace within ourselves first, then send it out to the world. DISTANT HEALING TECHNIQUES allow us to be of service from wherever we may be.

Namaste!

On Sunday afternoon, after the Global Prayer Effort, we received the good news that the Army Corps of Engineers said they would stop construction of the North Dakota Pipeline through Sioux land and do an environmental impact report for rerouting it.  However, the peaceful protesters are staying in camp because Energy Transfer Partners stated that they “are fully committed to ensuring that this vital project is brought to completion and fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and around Lake Oahe. Nothing this Administration has done today changes that in any way.”

As we did a healing circle to send energy to the protesters and the situation at Standing Rock, Susan Pa’iniu Floyd, a Hawaiian Shaman and teacher of Kino Mana bodywork with Aloha International, shared her method of distant healing.

Distant Healing Technique from Susan Floyd*:

First, I’ve learned I need to practice releasing tension within myself first, with happy woman standing on a sunset in ocean wavestechniques I’ve learned from Serge Kahili King, usually Piko Piko breathing (visualize breathing in energy from the top of your head and releasing it through the bottom of your feet, like bringing in energy through the crown chakra and releasing all tension through the root chakra), and self-massage.

My mission is to get myself into a high state of energy by releasing my own tension, so then I can focus on healing for who and where I want to help on the planet.

The focus on others has as much energy as you have to share. If we don’t have a lot of energy vibrations here, we’ll have less to send them.

In the case of Standing Rock, I’m thinking of everyone there in a state of absolute harmony, relaxation on all sides, because there’s so many people with different points of view. We have a lot of good people there but we’re not finding the right way to communicate yet.

In sending healing energy, we’re sending the thought, the focus. (The Hawaiian Huna principle of Makia applies here: Energy flows were attention goes. So focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want.)

We need to focus on the goodness we have and the goodness we want. I’m sending energy waves with a lot of good thoughts to help all involved get back into a state of relaxation, remembering who they are. We have to see a higher vision.

This is my commitment to the world now – to release my own tension so that I’m able to give more.

Many people would agree that prayer alone will not solve all of our problems, but to the water protectors at Standing Rock, direct action is considered sacred and prayer can be action, taking a stand for protecting what is sacred, together.

To help achieve a peaceful solution to the situation at Standing Rock, please join the second globally synchronized prayer which will be Sunday, December 4. Learn more at www.praywithstandingrock.com

The first Global Synchronized Prayer was Nov 26th where thousands gathered worldwide at community events to pray and meditate together or from their own homes. Click here to listen to the November 26th prayer led by indigenous leader Ivan Looking Horse.

How can prayer help such a dire situation where peaceful protesters are being violently assaulted by local, state and federal agents?

PRAYER IS ENERGY HEALING IN ACTION

Do you get discouraged if your prayers aren’t immediately answered? The problem may be that we are praying for God or a higher being to do something which it is not in its nature to do… take direct action vs. inspire and guide us to make the right choices.

Serge Kahili King, Ph.D., teacher of the Hawaiian Huna Philosophy and head of Aloha International wrote On Prayer at www.Huna.org:

In prayer we are trying to do something or to get something done, either for ourselves or for someone else. We pray to get an effect, and since an effect is involved, energy has to be involved, and all prayer involves the transmission of energy, [in this case toward the people and situation at Standing Rock].

In the prayer form known as the Lord’s Prayer that is found in the Christian Bible, Jesus states that we should ask for energy (“our daily bread”), cleansing (forgiveness), and guidance. A little further on in the chapter of Luke (11), Jesus makes the famous statement about, “Ask, and it shall be given unto you….” This has been taken to mean that you can ask God for anything you like and you will get it, although in practice it obviously doesn’t work out that way. The reason is revealed only a few lines further. What is to be given is the Holy Spirit. In other words, energy, ideas, and inspiration. We find this same idea in the Old Testament, in Sufi, Hindu, and Chinese writings, as well as in Hawaiian – namely that what we receive from above is the wisdom and the power to act. But it is we who must do the acting.

This brings us to the point of fact that there are essentially two types of prayer: vertical and horizontal. By vertical prayer, I mean that which is directed toward God or the Higher Self or toward someone in spirit. From this type of prayer we can only get inspiration, knowledge, understanding, and energy. Note carefully that the guidance we may get is in the form of ideas and inspiration. We do not actually get the kind of guidance that tells us exactly what to do and how to do it. That kind of guidance implies the making of choices, and that is our sole prerogative.

Horizontal prayer is that directed toward our everyday life, either to heal or help ourselves or others, or to change the future. This type of prayer is accomplished by us, and its effectiveness is determined by our beliefs and by the amount of energy we put into it. We each create our own experience of reality, the circumstances we find ourselves in, and through prayer properly understood we can change those circumstances. But it is the individual who changes the circumstances, not God and not the High Self. From them we only get the tools; they will not do the work for us.

Please join in prayer for Standing Rock so that all involved get the guidance to resolve the situation in a peaceful, environmentally-conscious manner. And please invite your friends to help positively impact the momentum of Standing Rock.

Namaste!
