Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

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.)

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

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! 🙂

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.

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

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!

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Hello, friends! How are things?

‘Things’ are quite busy around here. Beginning with my son’s birthday this week, I’m moving into the “festive” part of my year with holidays, get-togethers, celebrations, and special occasions arriving one after the other through New Year’s.

Doreen (working with the Angel Tarot deck) offers some great advice for centering and taking stock this week so that we may move ahead with greater presence of mind and spirit.

I’ve personally never worked with the Angel Tarot deck. It has 78 cards rather than 44 (most of the other decks have 44), and the images look beautiful. Check out this week’s video to learn more about Angel Tarot and to see what wisdom the angels have to share about the days ahead.

Have a wonderful, blessed week! I hope everyone enjoyed their Columbus Day holiday!

WWHSD? (What would Higher Self do?)

Well, my friends, we’re 10 days past the fall equinox now, and my fall check-in is over. The intensive period of “fall cleaning” has come to an end, and I have much more clarity about the work I have ahead of me in the remainder of 2012. As I was preparing to teach this week, I hoped to bring some of my new-found inspirations to the mat and share them with my students. So, what is my final answer? What bits of wisdom do I have to impart as we move ahead? In short, love, love, love yourself. When it comes time to choose, choose love!

As part of my fall check-in, I listened to Doreen Virtue’s Chakra Clearing: A Morning and Evening Meditation to Awaken Your Spiritual Power (available on iTunes) regularly. It was a great addition to the process, doing the kind of clearing energetically that the fall winds are working on outside right now. The segment related to the sacral chakra resonated most with me.

In that segment, she asks the listener to release their appetites and desires to the light within, aligning the listener’s personal will with the One Will of their Higher Self and Source.

Two of the most active fronts of my fall check-in involved my efforts to give up caffeine and sugar. At times, I would catch myself pre-assuming that hitting the drive-thru for a big, tall, sugary drink was part of the plan. My habits and appetites were over-riding my power of choice without me even noticing. So, along with a regimen of hip-opening poses (balancing for the sacral chakra) on the mat, I relied on the affirmation that I shared with you last week:

“I am harmoniously aligned with the ceaseless flow of supply and love that springs from the golden fountain of light from within my center. All of my desires are perfectly balanced right now.”

It became like a kind of WWHSD (What would my Higher Self do)? And, guess what? The answer was nearly always the same: Make the choice that is kind, loving, and life-affirming. Doing so now will have ripples of positivity far into the future.

I had chosen to let go of caffeine and sugar because, despite an initial boost, they leave me feeling depleted and… just plain yucky. More and more lately, those trips to the drive-thru would end with me feeling sick, anxious, and jittery. Each time I saw the same result, I would wonder why on earth I was making the same mistakes over and over- and treating myself so unkindly. Rather than dwell, I decided to make a better choice, and the habit of turning to my Higher Self in moments when I was tested was supporting that process. After I had been working with that for a few days, I came to a new level of understanding… while browsing videos on YouTube. YouTube was recommending a video from Doreen’s Angel Detox Month. The title or description asked something like, “Has your Higher Self been guiding you to give up alcohol?”

Click!

Had my Higher Self been speaking to me all along (though I wasn’t getting an A+ at listening)? Had it actually been my Higher Self asking me to make more loving, healthy choices for myself? Had my choice to focus on phasing out caffeine and sugar been guided by my Higher Self?

Of course.

I became more intent on being open and present to the wisdom of my Higher Self. Then, pop! The same word kept coming up over and over- Ahimsa. To be more in tune with the wisdom of my Higher Self is to be dedicated to observing Ahimsa, or non-harming. Always make the kind, loving, compassionate choice, beginning with the choices I make for myself.

As all of these pieces began to fall into place, I came across and article by Erica Rodefer, 5 Questions Before Going Deeper. In her article, she explores the practice of Ahimsa on the mat. She interprets the Sri Sathya Sai Baba quote, “Before you speak, think- is it necessary? Is it true? Is it kind? Will it hurt anyone? Will it improve on the silence?,” for the practice of asana.

The points she brought up in her article served as a great springboard for introducing Ahimsa into my class this week. I offered her questions to my students as a way to bring their attention back to the present moment, back to their breathing, and back to a place of listening to the cues they get from their bodies, as well as from the wisdom within.

I encouraged them to be open and honest with themselves in determining the version of the poses that suited them best. After all, going into a deeper expression of a posture can, even will, come over time with dedication and mindful attention to the body’s cues. Making the safest, most loving choice for your body right now will lead to being able to go deeper after time. The inverse, however, is not true. Pushing to go deeper now will not lead to good form in the future. In fact, it will likely lead to an injury in time. It may momentarily flatter your ego or satisfy some appetite, but is that worth making a choice that may endanger your well-being in the long run? If you pause to ask yourself- is it kind? is it necessary? will it hurt anyone?, and then listen for the wisdom of your Higher Self, the answer will be clear.

Namaste!
