Make-a-wish Mindfulness Meditation

With reality creating, it pays to spend time reflecting mindfully on what it is you are intending to create. This meditation helps you do exactly that, incorporating creative visualisation, story-telling and mindfulness mantras that help you make/feel/see the connection between words, feelings and body sensations.

Feeling is as important (possibly more important) than visualisation and affirmations. Or to phrase this a little differently: visualisation and affirmation without adding feeling (emotion and body-based sensation) is like sitting in a car, forgetting to turn the key and wondering why the car won’t go. The affirmations and visualisations are there to evoke a feeling-state. If like attracts like, emanating a feeling/mood that is in alignment with your intention is a good way to attract that intention to you.

Letting go, or non-attachment to outcomes, is a surprisingly important cornerstone of good reality creating. Desire is a fire that drives you to pursue your dreams (rather than sitting on the couch doing nothing), but once the engine has started, we need to balance desire with surrender and faith. Think of desire as something that reveals your underlying values to you, and focus on these values rather than becoming obsessed with pursuing or possessing whatever your desire has fixated upon.

It’s a good idea to keep asking “Why?” you want a specific dream to be realised. And when you get the answer, ask “Why?” again and again to uncover what is really driving you and why. Are these really your dreams? Or is this just what your parents role-modelled for you? Is this really the path to happiness? Or just what you’ve been told will make you happy (or desirable, respected etc) by society and clever social marketing?

Quite often, when I go through this process with my clients, they discover their desires have been conditioned by society or childhood. What they are really looking for is a feeling and they believe that having this car, or that much money, or this success or prestige, or that lifestyle or the perfect man/woman etc…. will somehow give them access to that feeling.

They also tend to believe that if they can’t get the man, car, job, pay-rise etc they won’t be able to have that feeling (of being worthy, happy, respected, valued, vindicated, content, safe etc). This then sets up a very loaded emotional charge around their desire that actually works against them accomplishing their goals. Too much grasping, obsessive, fear-based emotion doesn’t work well when it comes to reality creating. There needs to be some desire, yes, but not fear-based desire, or a hunger that blinds you to the bigger picture of your life and your deeper values.

The best quality intentions that have the best chance of success, are those that are in alignment with your deeper values, your core essence. True happiness comes from intangible things (feelings)… rather than having more things, or more recognition and success. The beauty of using mindfulness meditation in reality creating is that you can actually practise the feeling you are seeking, so that it becomes a new skill, rather than being dependant on external things to deliver that feeling. And the amazing thing is, once you have that feeling, your hunger to pursue it via external means disappears and you relax.

This combination of owning the feeling and relaxing is exactly what then opens your aura up to receiving the very things that will help deliver more of that delicious feeling. You won’t need the new car to feel successful and sexy because you’ve already cultivated this as a mindset, mood or auric feeling-state. The external trappings that you might attract/create from this state then become true reflections of your inner state, rather than compensations for an inner lack… or you might just decide that you don’t need all that stuff to validate or medicate you after all.

Having faith that your higher self is steering your life in directions that are nourishing for you is an approach I love to take. Because then if something my ego-self intended doesn’t happen I can just shrug my shoulders and let go, because I know my higher self has it covered. Either my intention wasn’t right for my higher good, or the timing isn’t right. By gracefully surrendering to my higher will, rather than obsessively trying to push or pull the river of life and shape it according to my oft-deluded ego-will, I can open to the will of Heaven and discover what Spirit wants to bless me with.

Lastly, I’m a great believer in practical action. I have spent too many years as a practitioner groaning inwardly as yet another client says one thing and does another. Are your actions in alignment with your intention? Or are you spending money on lottery tickets rather than investing that money wisely to help you take another small, but very concrete step closer to your dreams? People so often want things now, big things, instantly, without having to do any work to accomplish those dreams. I don’t have any respect for that. If you want something, take practical action to make it happen, don’t just sit on the couch dreaming about it. But first, be very sure that this is what you really want. That shiny new car might make your ego happy (temporarily) but at what cost? A new car in exchange for your freedom, with hefty loan repayments locking you in to working longer hours, having less holidays, and absolutely guaranteeing more stress when unexpected financial pressures come along. Does it really matter that much, the shiny new car? Why do you really want it? What do you imagine it will do for you? Is this desire in alignment with your deeper dreams and your core values?

Blessed Be

 

 

 

Base Chakra Healing

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Red Kurrajong

I just created a quick audio healing meditation for a client with a grumpy base chakra, and thought I might share it here too for others to enjoy. I forgot to set up the mike, so the recording quality isn’t as good as usual, but it will do!

This meditation is helpful for anyone whose base chakra or ‘red energy’ is grumpy, sulking and feeling thwarted due to a sense of being trapped or not having enough freedom/choices.

Red energy loves to move/act/express in a decisive and dynamic manner and if it gets blocked, it can get depressed!

My clients generally use their tailored meditations repeatedly over a period of time. After a while, they end up with a collection of them and know how each one makes them feel, and what each one is good for treating, so they self-prescribe as needed. It’s lovely to be able to come back to an old favourite when symptoms start creeping back in, months or years later.

 

If you love this, let me know!

 

Blessings and love,

Healing Meditation : Fan Flower

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a sketch of a flower fairy I met on my Wildflower Spirit Journey through Central Australia. She belongs to a family of flowers called “fan” or “hand” flowers, because of their unique one-sided shape, but my inner child thinks of her as a “moth” flower, because she looks like a moth when her petals are only half opened.

Here is a snippet from my book….

“The first fan flower greeted me by entering my heart chakra and sweeping it clean like a broom. With every sweep, I could feel it pushing against the inner walls of my heart chakra, making them stretch and expand outwards. My heart-space began to feel larger, as though there were more room inside me for love. I felt like I could love more people and love all of them more than I had ever been able to love anyone before…”. (click here to read more)

Fan flowers open and cleanse your aura, especially your heart chakra. I’ve created a short meditation to help you connect with the spirit of this flower medicine below…

Tree Dryad – Healing Meditation

 

Tree dryads are tree spirits. They can be male or female, young or old. For the most part, they are shy, and rarely seen by humans. This tree dryad specialises in healing loneliness, abandonment and rejection wounds in the inner child, and she asked me to channel this healing through for you.

Clearing Meditation

The Clearing Meditation teaches you how to use creative visualisation to clear your aura by releasing. or letting go of, old congested energy and/or the past. Omanisa takes the listener through a sequence of different clearing techniques, using nature imagery to stimulate aura colours in the aura that have a cleansing action.

Clearing is a form of letting go. As we grow, we develop greater courage to face the unknown and surrender to our journey with faith. Here is a beautiful, poetic blog from Omanisa about having the courage to surrender into faith, drawn from old diary entries.

Rainbow Chakra Meditation

cropped-centred-balanced-chakra.jpg Learn the positions and colours of the traditional rainbow chakra system in this guided self-care meditation.

This meditation guides you through the process of balancing your chakras with colour-breathing and creative visualisation. You don’t have to see clear pictures in your mind for this to be effective. Creative visualisation is actually a multi-sensory experience, a combination of imagery, feeling, sound, thought and so on. In much the same way that we experience the sensory richness of story while reading a fictional book, your task is simply to stay focused on the story being told by engaging your imagination. This meditation will come to life with practise, and you will start to notice that some colours are easier to imagine than others. These are the chakras that are healthy! If a colour is more difficult to imagine, or you find yourself becoming easily distracted and unable to focus on that colour, it may be because this chakra is blocked. Continued colour-breathing practise will gradually unblock these chakras.

Grounding : Self-Care Meditation

The meditation teaches various grounding techniques using creative visualisation or magical intent. Grounding is a valuable technique to learn if you tend to be too floaty, spacey, vague, easily distracted, speedy or clumsy. As the counterpoint to (or anchor for) the altered state of mind accessed during healing and psychic work, grounding is a particularly important self-care skill for healers and psychics to learn.

Enter through a gateway leading into your inner world and rediscover your your ‘inner nature’. This journey familiarises you with the centre of your sacred inner garden, a meeting place between you and spirit, wher many healing journeys can begin. By learning to stay focsed on imagined sensory information such as imagery, sounds, feelings, sensations, smells and so on, you strengthen your capacity to connect with your spirit helpers. Sanctuary Meditation draws on many classic techniques used by spiritual questers exploring the inner world, such as shape shifting and using natural landscapes as a metaphor for your inner being.

Vision Quest : Shamanic Song Healing

Photo 321

Shamanic song healings carry sound energy throughout the universe, linking you up with times, places and magical intentions. Channeled though by two of Omanisa’s spirit guides, this male-female blending of voices invokes the power of the vision quest, an ancient journey undertaken to discover ones higher purpose or calling in life. While we may have one over-arching purpose, there are smaller ones that come and go throughout our lives, changing with us as we grow. This healing is helpful when you are feeling lost and uncertain about yout direction and identity.

The Strength Song

 

Photo 321

Shamanic song healing combines sound therapy with ancient song healing, channeled through each song via Om’s spirit guides. Quite often, the song will be an evocation, a calling forth of a particular quality or energy into one’s life and being. In the Strength Song, the song is passed back and forth between three of Om’s guides, who stand together in a circle, calling strength in for the listener. In the song, they are discussing different kinds of strength and how the best strength is an amalgam of various types. You won’t hear this conversation spoken in words however, because the shamanic song are always sung in some unknown language, known only to Spirit.
