Sacredness Time

The Holidays are fast approaching and, naturally, we are drawn to reflect, rest, and pause. When our bodies are disconnected from our spirit, we feel tired, discontent, and lost. To increase joyfulness during the Holidays, we must find time to realign our bodies with our spirit through making time for sacredness. It might be difficult because we have become used to rest with our phones, to watch movies, to be connected on social media, or to text friends. We are used to seek activities, and to be immersed in them. Sacredness calls us to let go of activities, to let go of worries, to shift our focus to giving to ourselves, to increase our self-compassion, to bring our attention to our bodies, our hearts, and our dreams. In a way, sacredness time should be a communion with ourselves – a sacred time to reclaim what has been lost through work, stress, emotional upheaval, drama, and demands of family and society. I don’t know what that communion would be like for you and what you would discover about yourself, but I can suggest to you ways to get there and to boost the joy that has been dormant inside of you. Even small efforts on your part to include sacredness in your schedule can bring big results in terms of feeling present, happy, and more like yourself.

1. Shut off your phone on weekends or hours at a time.
2. Fall in love with silence through turning off your TV, radio, etc.
3. Go for walks in nature, and listen to the natural sounds of birds and winds.
4. Journal and create.
5. Meditate.
6. Sit on the beach and watch the waves.
7. Play with your dog or your cat.
8. Pray.
9. Pamper your body.
10. Do something nice for someone in need.

A Healing Story

A Healing Story

I would like to tell you about my healing story, and how I came to believe in energy healing, and intuition development. Also, how this growth process led me to teach skills and techniques based on the lessons I learned, to help those facing similar challenges.

Eight years ago, I fell into a deep personal crisis, after years of struggling to overcome depression and to balance a difficult relationship. When my marriage ended, I experienced a massive loss of faith in humanity, and of life itself. I became disillusioned about everything I knew about how to be in the world, and about much of what I had been taught as life lessons and choices. By looking for answers outside of myself, I didn’t find the peace and direction I urgently needed. I had sought out the help of a psychiatrist who prescribed medication to me, yet my state of disillusionment and discontent held fast.

The following year, I met an enlightened human being at a gym in Sausalito, CA, who noticed my lost look, and decided to talk to me about it. I probably looked very unhappy to him, and he advised me to start reading Caroline Myss. For those of you who have never heard the name, she is a renown New York Times best selling author and spiritual teacher who is an expert in medical intuition.
