A Mother Here

"In Her Image" - Jennifer Smith. Third Place. This work is mixed media (oil and floral decoupage) on canvas paper. The impulse behind the work came from my desire to create an image of the Prime Female as a being representative of the human race as a whole. I would love all women who view this image to feel as though they are made perfectly; in image of a Heavenly Mother who embraces and embodies all possibilities of skin/eye/hair color facial features etc.

Mother Goose

How deeply I love you, my Mother!!!

How I wish you had loved me.

You couldn’t.

You couldn’t do it!!!

You were just a shell,

A shell left over from rape,

From an unwanted pregnancy,

A baby boy you never saw, never held, never wanted.

I’m told you were abused as well.

By your father.

That is impossible for me to imagine.

It must have been someone else.

Who hurt you?

Who formed the monster you became with me?

How do you possibly justify what you did to me?

By telling the world I was “crazy”

So no one would listen if I told.

I never told.

What would be the point?

You took away or killed everything I ever loved.

You definitely tried.

You wanted me to see you

as having total power over me.

You wanted me to believe that you were

too powerful to ever be questioned.

What I know I KNOW is

You were never powerful at all,

 You were pitiful.

With all your manipulations.

All your attempts to control.

All your lies.

You are a liar!!!

Just a liar.

Your teeth caved in.

Eaten away, turned upon themselves.

Dead, dead, dead like you!!!

I wish this had a pretty ending.

But…it is what it is.

There are times when we have to be

thankful for what is!!!

I AM grateful for the way things really were!!!

You made me stronger than

I ever could have possibly imagined!!!

Without intending to do it,

You made me exactly what I AM TODAY!!!

STRONG, HEALTHY, INVINCIBLE,

UNBREAKABLE, UNDISPUTED, INDISPUTABLE,

IMMACULATE, WEATHER-PROOF.

I AM SOMEONE WHO CANNOT

POSSIBLY BE BEATEN!!!

I AM UNBEATABLE!!!

UNBEATABLE!!!

UNBEATABLE!!!

UN BEATEN!!!

UN BEATEN!!!

UN BEATEN!!!

I AM ALIVE!!!

I AM ALIVE!!!

I AM ALIVE!!!

I REMAIN ALIVE FOREVER!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,

thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Putting Out the Trash

Good morning!  It’s been a while since there’s been a new post here.  New day, new month, so much going on, blogging took a very brief back seat.  We’re back!  Is almost everyone in clearing mode right now?  We have been, meaning myself and my loved ones.  No uncomfortable cleaning/clearing this time, just deep, long awaited, joyous release of emotions, things, and thoughts that no longer fit.

There was minor retrying-on of a few items.  If they do still fit, why get rid of them?  But for the most part, everyone is on track and blissfully moving forward in our truly enjoyable present, without all the old encumbrances.  FREEDOM!

One of my daughters has a mandate in her own family, home, and life:  Donate, give or otherwise remove everything not currently in use.  Obviously this does not include financial records or holiday decorations, but everything else is fair game!  I’ve accused her of being fanatical about this.  She swears it keeps the energy of her life moving, flowing, and bringing in wondrous new stuff that’s way better than all the old put together.  And she hasn’t even studied feng shui!

Many folks cling to things, ideas, and habits out of fear.  Merely considering letting go of some parts of our lives can be scary, although they long ago became useless, even unhealthy.  If you’ve ever watched a show about hoarding, you already know this. Useless clutter interferes with functionality as well as beauty and peacefulness, as well as providing a haven for dirt and filth. Hoarding is undeniably unhealthy.

But what about just hanging onto such things as food choices that don’t keep us healthy, choosing criticism rather than bestowing a compliment, or continuing to smoke because, “I’m not ready to give it up!  I really enjoy smoking.”

Recently I read a remark that, compared to the Gulf oil spill, “My smoking doesn’t seem so bad!”  That floored me to utter silence. The person making that remark is an intelligent, lovely person who has stubbornly clung to her tobacco habit even though it has cost her clients, friends, and loved ones.  The habit was more important to her than anyone else’s comfort, and people left her life.  I was one of them.

She introduced me to other smokers, perhaps with the intent that I would “get used to it”.  I didn’t.  What happened in my life, in response to constant reminders that, “I have a right to light!” was that I assumed a silent stand that I have a right to breathe clean air, to fill my lungs with oxygen, and to enjoy the smells of my home and my surroundings!

Looking back, I have much to thank this woman for!  I did learn to quietly, firmly stand up for what is right for me, and to let go of behaviors, people, relationships, and things that do not belong in my harmonious, peaceful life.  She literally forced me into it, and I’m eternally grateful!

A couple of times, I wondered if she ever missed my presence in her life.  I doubt that she ever did.  In fact, I’m certain that she still prefers her cigarettes and other habits to the friendship of anyone who cannot hang with consumption of her second-hand and third-hand smoke.

The bottom line is, everyone gets to make their own choices here! Short of your doing something glaringly illegal, and often not even then, no one comes into your life and rips away the things you cling to.  Many of us fear the discomfort of change.  Those with actual addictions fear the physical pain and agony of withdrawing from what they are choosing to hang onto.

We who do periodic cleaning/clearing of ourselves, bodies, homes, and personal spaces, come to enjoy even the symptoms of clearing because these symptoms herald the freedom and clarity that follow!

My personal journey with Reiki has been one of pursuing functionality and seeking health.  I’ve learned to be comfortable with everyone’s choices, including my own when it becomes necessary to let go of all that hurts me.  Yes, at times this includes leaving behind people that I genuinely love.  The love never departs.  Fortunately, I love myself enough to set and honor the boundaries that make my own life enjoyable.

To me, this is what Reiki is all about.  As we live day-to-day according to The Reiki Principles, it becomes first nature to KNOW OUR SELVES, and to joyously live accordingly!  The Reiki Precepts teach us how to live; they are guidelines for living the best life.  When we have mastered that, there is time enough to treat others, to be politically active, and to seek whatever else we desire.

Here is a loose translation of The Reiki Precepts into the English language:

Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not anger.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will love and respect every living thing.

May we all be blessed with the most abundant life ever!  Until next post, Namaste!

Reiki in the New Year 2010

In the previous post just before this one, we spoke about the biological requirements for oxygen, water, and food substances. Today we are expanding upon those a bit, as well as introducing what may be new to some of you readers, our biological requirement for light.

Let’s begin with light.  The source for light on our planet is the sun we orbit.  In some traditions this heavenly fire body is known as the Great Central Sun.  All light emitted by the sun is charged with cosmic substance, which we know also as chi, ki, prana, and universal life force energy.

Every living creature requires this cosmic substance to continue and maintain the life of his physical form.  So…it behooves us to hone our individual ability to optimize the intake of chi. Here are a few simple suggestions:  Breathe deeply outdoors for a minimum of 15 minutes daily. If you’ve been indoors for some time without a real break, you may enjoy this experiment.  The next time you are feeling tired, eat a sweet fresh orange outdoors while walking for about 15 minutes. Breathe deeply.  Doing so in full sunlight may provide optimal results, but please don’t discount the presence of light even on cloudy, rainy, or snowy days.  Chi is always present in our atmosphere, and what is most beneficial is the deep breathing outdoors where the most chi is. Combining the intake of chi with the consumption of a fresh orange optimizes and enhances the effects of this exercise.

What if you are sun-sensitive?  Do the experiment anyway, please. Wear a large brimmed hat to prevent exposure of your skin to direct sunlight.  You’re doing this for the chi, rather than for exposure to sunlight.

If you enjoy sun on your skin, so much the better.  Optimal results are attained without clothing, or with as little clothing as possible. Use your imagination, and ENJOY!

Abdominal breathing, 15 minutes, outdoors, while eating a fresh juicy orange!  That’s exercise 1.

***

Oxygen is our next requirement.  We just practiced some deep abdominal breathing outdoors, hopefully in sunlight.  We’re on the way to great things!

Let’s speak briefly about how to optimize respiratory function. It makes sense that, when every cell, molecule, and atom of our respiratory system functions optimally, we get not only the best possible intake of oxygen, but also the greatest intake of chi.  So, without getting into a long discourse about how to take care of one’s lungs, I’ll just make a couple of very simple suggestions.

Something I do myself and highly recommend is twice daily use of the NeilMed system.  It’s like a neti pot on steroids 🙂 and is available in the pharmacy at any WalMart store for about $11.00 USD.  No, I’m not advertising for WalMart.  It’s just the least expensive source I’ve located so far, and this is an incredible product, very effective.  Buy some extra boxes of solution packets, if possible.  These are about $7.00 USD per box.  Please don’t try mixing your own nasal cleanser.  I did. Take my word for it.  Or not.  BTW, the neti pot uses plain salt (non-iodized) and warm water, so no mixture packets are required.

Read directions thoroughly.  I’ve posted some video instructions below for anyone who is interested; these are available on YouTube for both the NeilMed system and the neti pot.  The neti pot uses gravity, while NeilMed works with gentle pressure.  I prefer Neil Med. Make up your own mind.  Should you choose to cleanse you nasal passages using either, you are likely to be amazed by what clears.

NeilMed or neti pot for two weeks.  That’s exercise 2.

***

Let’s go on to water.  Water consumption is something I’ve always considered obvious, yet everyday I meet people who do not drink water, at all.  Fluids, liquids, and water are not the same and are not interchangeable when intending to attain and maintain optimal health.

A few years back, I was suddenly hospitalized with a very high fever and severe pain.  Doctors patiently explained that I must have emergency surgery to remove my gallbladder.  That seemed really drastic to me, considering that my gallbladder and its secretions serve a wonderful purpose and I have no desire to try to regrow mine. I withdrew and asked for guidance.  As I was still praying, an ad flashed onto the TV screen in my room, and I unmuted the sound so I could hear it.  I’d never seen the ad before, ever, nor have I ever seen it since, and at that time I’d never heard anything about such a product.  It is bottled artesian water called eVamor. Stunned by the simplicity and immediacy of this divine suggestion, I summoned the nurse’s station and asked for the paperwork to sign myself out AMA, against medical advice. They argued valiantly in a united heroic effort to save my life.  I’ll always remember the young surgeon who sat patiently with me, telling me that I would most likely die of pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer, as well as the anger of the nurse who removed my IV, ripping my arm open.

As I waited downstairs for my ride, I called the local water delivery company and ordered two cases of eVamor.  With the devoted assistance of a dear friend who administered flower essences for my problems, as well as strict adherence to a meatless, fat-free diet for eight weeks, and copious consumption of eVamor, I’ve never had so much as another twinge!  My gallbladder is intact and functioning perfectly!

To the best of my knowledge, eVamor is still the most alkaline drinking water currently available in the USA.  The ingredients are listed on the website.  While there are other brands of alkaline water available, I did try most of them to compare, then continued using eVamor.   It’s delicious and tastes noticeably heavier or denser than other waters.

Replace your current bottled water with eVamor for at least one month.  If you eat flesh foods, doing so is especially important in maintaining health.  That’s exercise 3.

***

Briefly, let’s survey foods that raise vibration.  Years ago, my guides (see Who I AM page) listed foods according to the impact of each upon personal vibration.  Sun fruits are most desirable vibrationally; these are banana, mango, papaya, persimmon, pineapple.  We usually think of these as tropical simply because they are grown nearest the equator and soak up the most sunlight, as well as chi.  Dates fall into this category, as well, but should be used sparingly by anyone having a tendency to blood sugar fluctuations.

Citrus fruits are excellent, being useful mostly for clearing and cleansing the body.

Regular fruits like apples, peaches, apricots, nectarines, and pears, come next and can be used as dietary mainstay, especially during winter months when available sun fruits are not always of the highest quality.  (Persimmons are normally used in fall just when mango goes out of season.)

Grapes and melons are excellent for fruit fasts and salads. Watermelon especially has very high water content and is excellent for improving one’s health.

Berries in season are excellent.

Nuts, including coconut, are excellent sources of raw protein.  Try making your own version of  heavy cream:  2 cups of raw cashews or other nuts soaked overnight in pure water, then blended to the smoothest consistency, preferably in a Vita-Mix.  If using a regular blender, the cream can be strained through cheesecloth or a fine sieve.

Avocado, bell pepper, and tomato are fruits as well, and combine for a luscious salad.  Add a touch of olive oil with fresh lemon or lime, please.

Perhaps I need to state emphatically here that I AM neither encouraging nor discouraging vegetarianism.  Food intake is a personal choice, and I feel very strongly that each person is fully capable of making individual choices as well as knowing personal bodily requirements for optimal  health.  What I AM saying is that following the suggestion for alkaline water can be especially beneficial for those who love consuming acid forming foods.  If you love eating flesh foods, please pay extra attention to your intake of alkaline water.

Optimize your intake of alkaline foods.  Five or more servings daily, please.  And please do be imaginative as well as creative when preparing and enjoying your food!  Smoothies are wonderful. So are salads.  You are not being encouraged to consume a boring diet!  That’s exercise 4.

***

If you do all these exercises, you’re almost certain to notice immediate results, as well as ongoing improvements as you continue them.  Since your health is important, not only to you, but to the entirety of Earth and all her inhabitants, every personal improvement you make pays huge dividends for all of us here, as well!  We are all important to each other!

Life, light, and love!  Until next blog, namaste!  Links for NeilMed are below the copyright notice.
