Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Who’s ready for a kinder, gentler week?

Spring is approaching… and what’s the saying about March? “In like a lion, out like a lamb?” For anyone out there who is hoping that the lamb-i-ness arrives sooner rather than later, Doreen has good news for you this week. She’s working with the Saints and Angels oracle card deck, and all signs point to a less intense week ahead.

Fingers crossed!

Love and blessings to all this week!

Please help me uplift my thoughts to the positive level.

Whoa! So, I’ve mentioned before that I take notes when I watch Doreen Virtue‘s weekly oracle card reading, but man!… There is so much in this reading that I had to keep pausing and rewinding it to get it all down. It took forevvver.

I hope that you find as much insight in this week’s reading as I did. Enjoy!

(ps- Here is a link to the book she mentions at the end: The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price.)

Happy Monday, my friends! I know many of you have some time off this week. Some of you may be traveling. And I hope that all of you will be doing something special with friends or loved ones for Thanksgiving on Thursday.

I kicked the week off with a group yoga practice that explored ‘gratitude’ and how we can express it on and off the mat. More about that later, but first…

Doreen is here with the Saints and Angels. See what important guidance she has to share about this special week.

And like she says, don’t forget to count your blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Hey y’all… guess who’s tardy for the party? Sorry, I needed a minute. I don’t know if I’m experiencing symptoms of a Reiki “cleanse” or if it’s the solar eclipse and everything else that is shaping up cosmically (I’m sure it’s a combo of all), but I have been feeling things very intensely lately. I feel like issues are surfacing from way, way down to come to the surface and be released once and for all.

Doreen’s reading this week speaks so beautifully to these feelings. She even includes a brief meditation that I just love.

Check out the video and see if it resonates with you. Feel free to share your thoughts below.

Fairies! Once again, the fairies have made my day.

As Doreen explains in her reading, she is using the Messages from the Fairies oracle deck this week to call upon the wisdom of these “earth angels.” With the devastation left in the wake of last week’s storm, these entities that live so close to the earth can provide special insight.

See what they have to say about the upcoming week! I found it to be a beautiful, profound reading once again. SHOCK! πŸ™‚

Love and prayers to all, especially those who were effected by Hurricane Sandy.

Wow!

I don’t know if it the very special oracle deck she’s using (Mary, Queen of Angels) or the reading itself- probably a combination of both- but I found this week’s reading to be so incredibly powerful. Maybe my favorite ever.

Please watch the video and see for yourself. I’d love to know your thoughts about it! Did it grab you like it grabbed me?

Wow! Doreen’s oracle card reading for this week resonates very deeply with me.

I received my Reiki II attunements on Sunday (yay!), and I am already experiencing some fairly profound shifting and cleansing. In fact, I’m a little delayed in posting this because I’ve been following her wise guidance to “nurture myself” even though I hadn’t watched her reading for this week yet. It was what my body, mind,… everything was requiring.

And she doesn’t stop ringing bells for me there! Her entire reading this week feels as if she is speaking directly to me.

She what she has to say about the week of October 22-28 and see if you feel the same way!

I’d love to hear what you think/feel!

Dear Angels and Guides

Journaling is one of the most effective tools in my bag for keeping me on my path. The slower, more deliberate flow of thought that takes over when I am writing allows me to notice patterns and to see through illusions more easily. If I hear myself getting whiny or going down a negative path, I am more likely to stop and be mindful of what I am doing. When I hear a thought veering off into ‘woe is me’ territory, I often stop mid-sentence because the “story” I’m telling no longer seems worth the time and effort to write it down.

I am able to see that it is not the story I want to tell. I am not a victim. That is not the truth of who I am. I only remain stuck under the thumb of that illusion so long as I am willing to tell that story.

So, I stop mid-sentence and begin telling a different story.

I am strong.
I am powerful.
I am blessed.
I am grateful.

Ong Namo Gurudev Namo
I bow to the Divine Teacher within.

The more I practice this exercise of being mindful of the “story” I’m telling, the more I am able to hear a higher truth. A truth that has been present all along, though it is easy to miss with the volume of my “story” cranked up to 11.

Its nature is simple, humble, patient, eternal.

I was writing the other day:

Dear Holy Mother, Father, angels, spirit guides, all beings of light, the Source of this truth-

I’m sending it out in all directions that I need help. I need strength. I need wisdom. I need you to show me the way.

And then I hear that Voice of truth rise up as plain as day… “You already have everything you need. It is already given. The rest is up to you now.

I am blessed.
I am grateful.
I am blessed.

Wow! I absolutely cannot believe this is already the week of October 15-21, 2012. Time is just flying.

It could have something to do with that ‘Max’s 4th birthday’ time warp I found myself in last week. It felt that the entire week was one, long 4th birthday party. And today, we spent most of the afternoon putting up Halloween decorations. Things are moving quickly now. This year will be over in the blink of an eye.

Today is also the new moon, so it is a time for making plans, setting intentions, and manifesting. Doreen addresses this energy of ‘change’ that is swirling all around us now. Using the Archangel Michael oracle deck, she channels the wisdom of Archangel Michael for today and the upcoming week.

I hope it is a week of growth and positive change for each and every one of you!

This little light of mine…

Confidence.

What can I confidently say about confidence? That was the task that I set before myself when preparing to teach this week.

Before I had even begun giving too much attention to my class this week, one word kept coming up: confidence. The idea resonated with me, personally, as I am manifesting changes in several areas of my life. In my yoga career, especially, I am recognizing more and more the importance of self-confidence and believing in yourself. It’s fundamental.

But how could I translate my inspirations about confidence into a yoga practice? I felt that the idea was worth exploring. After all, success would mean that one of my students might connect with her own sense of self-confidence in a new way.

‘Ok. Let’s do this.’

I decided to begin where any serious inquiry begins- on Google. I found pages upon pages of insightful quotes about confidence, most of which essentially boil down to the same thing: Have faith and confidence in yourself and anything is possible.

Believe in yourself. In your dreams, aspirations, and abilities.

All of it hitting right at the level of the solar plexus chakra (manipura, meaning ‘cave of jewels’). It is the chakra of ‘I can.‘ Of willpower. Of honoring one’s self. Its color is golden, sunshine yellow, and it radiates from the base of the sternum like a little, golden sun.

Twists are the category of postures most closely associated with the solar plexus chakra, so I included several twists (prayer twist, supine twist, and matsyendrasana).

We also returned to the visualization of the radiant, golden sun in standing poses, like mountain and warrior I.

Fearlessly shine that light of yours in every direction for all of creation to see.

Working with these exercises helped me experience ‘confidence’ in a new light in the days leading up to class. In my meditation and yoga practice, I began to connect ‘confidence’ to other chakras, too, especially the root chakra (muladhara) and the throat chakra (vishuddha).

The root chakra governs our sense of safety and security. Without a strong foundation, we cannot stand tall. How can we make the leap for our dreams and ambitions if we are standing on shaky ground? Standing poses strengthen the root chakra (mountain, warrior I, eagle, humble warrior).

Finally, I integrated several postures that activate the throat chakra (vishuddha). This is our center of communication outward, governing our ability to verbalize our thoughts and ideas and to speak our truth. Forward bends are the category of poses that is associated with the throat chakra. We paused in uttanasana and paschimottanasana for somewhat longer than other poses to allow a deep opening of the entire body and to stimulate the throat chakra.

Taken together, these three chakras and their associated qualities light the picture of confidence that came into focus for me this week. As I said before, this particular combination resonated with me most in this time of manifesting in my life and working to bring about positive changes. I know that these ideas hit home with many of you, too. So many of us are riding the seas of change and attempting to keep our balance. If you were not able to come to my class this week (or if you were), I hope that some bit of information that I have shared has touched you in some way and that you are inspired to recognize that you are, in fact, awesome and fully able to realize whatever you set your mind on.

Yes, my dears, you can.

Namaste!
