The Siri Gaitri Mantra

Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung

This mantra (the Siri Gaitri mantra) has become a daily companion for me in the past few weeks.

Since I received my Reiki attunements last month, I have been paying extra attention to my etheric body and my chakras, especially as I am practicing healing on myself and others. As Ramdesh Kaur states in her article about the Siri Gaitri mantra, it is “a way of raising your vibration to the frequency of Divine Healing.”

Want to learn more? Also check out this great article with an expanded description of the mantra’s universal healing properties and how to incorporate it into meditation.

Let the healing begin!!!

Daily reminder

“Learn to remove the weeds that have grown in the garden of the mind. Make your mental garden so beautiful that God will come there. If you want to have such a mental garden, blooming in the soil of wisdom, you must make your life simple. By doing everything consciously, not absentmindedly, you can analyze your activities; then choose what is important and cut out the nonessentials. As soon as you are through with your duties, withdraw your mind from them and employ it in other creative pursuits.”

So(ul) much fun

The current 40-day Global Sadhana began on Mother’s Day- Elevating Ourselves, Blessing Our Children. I was pretty much knocked out of the box with sickness over the weekend. I wasn’t quite myself.

But now that I’m patched back together and recuperated, I’ve really begun to enjoy this sadhana more than any of the others I’ve done. Of course, this may have more than a little to do with the fact that little man gets to join in, too.

The children’s celestial communication is my absolute favorite part of this sadhana. Max nearly has it down now, and it’s probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ll try to make a video at some point… photographing him is somewhat like trying to get a shot of a yeti, though.

Wish me luck! And try this celestial communication with any little munchkins in your life. I hope they enjoy as much as my little buddy does!

The next Global Sadhana!

The next Global Sadhana begins this Sunday! This time, we will be “Elevating Ourselves, Blessing Our Children.” It is not only for parents and caretakers of children, but anyone who is interested in the upliftment of children worldwide.

The sadhana includes a pranayama exercise, as well as a recitation. Also, check out this video of what Snatam calls “celestial communication” for children. I love it already! I can’t wait to show it to my little man. He loves learning new songs.

I’m very excited about joining this global community to aid children and their caretakers. And it begins on Mother’s Day… such a great gift ♥

What’s up in the yoga garden?

take a deep breath.

If I haven’t been around as much lately, it’s because the yoga garden has been calling my name. There’s always something new popping up or some lovely creature dropping by. It’s my favorite- a great place for practicing yoga all year. But this happens to be one of my absolute favorite times of the year to practice yoga and meditate outdoors.

Check out this gallery of what’s been going on lately in the yoga garden… hope to see you here soon!

Daily reminder

“The joy felt in meditation reveals the presence of Eternal Joy spread over all creation. The light seen in meditation is the astral light from which our tangible creation is made. Beholding this light, one feels a unity with all things.”

Daily reminder

“Above all, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible. Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self, release all grasping, and relax into your true nature. Think of your ordinary emotional, thought-ridden self as a block of ice or a slab of butter left out in the sun. If you are feeling hard and cold, let this aggression melt away in the sunlight of your meditation. Let peace work on you and enable you to gather your scattered mind into the mindfulness of Calm Abiding, and awaken in you the awareness and insight of Clear Seeing. And you will find all your negativity disarmed, your aggression dissolved, and your confusion evaporating slowly like mist into the vast and stainless sky of your absolute nature.”

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

/

Oh, help me, Jesus…

She really said ‘angst’ & recommended energy healing work. This is officially the 10th week of 2012. We’re deep into things now. It’s really getting real.

This is actually the deck that I gifted to my mother for Christmas, so let’s see what’s in the cards for us this week. Doreen says it’s one of her favorite decks, so what does it have to tell us??

As Doreen suggests, ‘big changes in the week to come.’ We’re approaching the Spring Equinox. And she’s right on target for so many aspects. Personally, I feeled challenged to step up my game in many areas. To acknowledge that we’re beginning a new cycle.

What does her reading mean to you??

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

This week, Doreen is working with the Messages from your Angels oracle deck. I have this deck and it’s one of my very favorites.

I love the card for Monday!! I’ve just been preparing and getting inspired for my class today. Thanks very much for the encouragement, Angels! And thanks for the follow-up counsel as well. I think that’s a very important balance for lightworkers, healers, people in general, etc. We must balance our efforts to heal others with time to nurture ourselves.

Have a great week everyone!!
