Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

“Letting go and letting God…” Amen, Doreen!

In my class today, we played with all of the new-ness that’s happening right now. Today is Chinese New Year as well as new moon. And over the weekend, a very dear friend of mine gave birth to her first child. Inspired by this ‘seedling’ energy- all of these new beginnings that are sprouting up, we used our practice to clear and release the ‘old’ in order to make room for the ‘new’.

Manifesting. Co-creating. Planting our intentions and watching them grow.

Doreen’s reading with the Mermaids and Dolphins oracle cards this week. Check it out…

Good news!

Yoga for your immune system

So, the munchkin completed his first full week of school with flying colors… and a snotty nose. As I was meditating on my class this week, I was simultaneously wrestling with a tickly, pre-sickness throat. Hence, I decided that this week’s class should focus on poses to support the immune system.

Here are a few poses you could try at home any time to bolster your immune health:

Simhasana (lion pose): This pose activates the tonsils and the lymph nodes in the throat. I’ve heard that it is possible to squash an oncoming bout of the sniffles if you practice this pose when you first feel ‘that tickle’ in your throat.

Bhujangasana (cobra pose): This pose, and any other upper back bends that open the chest and heart center, activate the thymus gland.

Namaskar Parsvakonasana (prayer twist): This twist puts pressure on the lymph nodes in the armpits.

Viparita Karani (legs-up-the-wall pose): All inversions work wonders on the immune system. Getting the heart and the feet above the head encourages blood and lymphatic fluid to circulate and rejuvenate the cells. I chose this very gentle inversion for class today… because, honestly, who wants to do a handstand with a snotty nose??

Supta Baddha Konasana (reclining bound angle pose): Hip openers, like this one, work on the lymph nodes and activate the spleen. I chose a supported, restorative version of this pose for class today so that we could comfortably remain in the pose longer while it worked its magic.

If you’re feeling a little under the weather, or if you feel as if you’re headed in that direction, give these poses a try. Also, remember that nasal cleansing with a neti pot can clear illness-inducing bacteria from the nasal passages and breathing exercises (pranayama) can improve the health of the nose, throat, and lungs. And everyone has their personal favorite healing recipes… one of my students was on her way home today to enjoy a bowl of chicken soup.

And for the cherry on top of the healing goodness? Ask for help from the Angels. I closed today’s practice with a guided meditation during savasana. I asked my students to visualize themselves surrounded by the emerald green light of Archangel Raphael (the Archangel of physical healing) and to allow that healing light to penetrate into any areas of their body that needed it.

Love, light… and a little luck! ♥

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Hey! I have this deck! Doreen is here with the Archangels to share guidance for this week.

I love that she says we are in an energy cycle of great manifestation and that the reading reflects that. I’m already looking ahead to the new moon next week to add a little extra power to manifesting a fan-freakin-tastic 2012.

So many crucial reminders in this reading (for me and maybe for you, too). And she also includes a brief breathing exercise/meditation for moving forward. Yummy. Yummy. Goodness.

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Happy Monday… it’s Doreen and the “nature Angels”- the fairies. I totally can’t believe how right on she is (ok, yes I can). I’m using the power of the full moon to clear, cleanse, and let go. For days, I’ve been purging my house, my body, my life of all that no longer serves me. Powerful winds are at my back and now is the time. Thanks, Doreen for reminding me of it again.

How about you? Does Doreen’s reading ring true this week?

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

For this week’s reading, Doreen calls upon her Angel Therapy oracle cards. According to Doreen, these cards differ from the others in that their information is more action-based-what to do rather than a beautiful, inspirational message. See what’s in the cards for us this week… ♥

Dear Angels and Guides

“Dear Archangel Raphael, thank you for dissolving fear-based attachments to unhealthful foods and beverages now. Thank you for adjusting my appetite so that I crave only healthful items. Thank you for clearly guiding my eating and drinking choices.”

~Doreen Virtue

ps- I second that! 🙂

Thanks in advance-
