Spring Equinox ~ 2011

Spring is on it’s way!

Like many of you I’ve been watching world events with a heavy heart. How do we find and maintain our center when the ground is shifting and changing beneath our feet. . .  Most importantly, how do we cope with the face of inevitable change?

Each of us have different ways of coping whether it is through prayer, meditation, writing, painting, watching movies or doing the spiritual work we have been practicing over the years. In times of crisis, we often return to those beliefs and practices that restore a sense of balance in our lives. A renewed sense of connection to the Divine.

We are one ~ we are not separate.

Finding comfort in nature.

Even on days where there are more shadows than light, we find beauty.

“A fresh attitude starts to happen when we look to see that yesterday was yesterday, and now it is gone; today is today and now it is new. It is like that ~ every hour, every minute is changing. If we stop observing change,  then we stop seeing everything as new.”  ~ Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche

“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” – Rose Arizmendi

Tools For Personal Healing

The Etheric Weaver

One of my favorite tools for personal healing is the Etheric Weaver. I purchased mine about nine years ago just after experiencing a full body Etheric Weaver treatment.

I have found the Etheric Weaver to be a wonderful addition to my Reiki practice and I use it often as part of my own personal healing regime .

However, I would like to also mention that you can do the same type of healing work with a pendulum or any other healing tool. The secret is to intend that your pendulum is a healing tool. It’s that simple!

Etheric Weavers are crystals ranging from 3.5″ to 7.5″ in length with two small magnets on either side, circled in copper wire with a chain attached to the top. The clear quartz crystals are wrapped in colored theatrical-light gel. Each color creates a specific frequency that resonates with the body and realigns the energy field in the etheric layer.

It’s very simple to use – simply hold it over anything or anyone, like a pendulum. For self healing you can suspend the Etheric Weaver about 3 to 6 inches above your left palm while holding the weaver with your right hand. Clear your mind and be very still. If the weaver starts to spin or move in any direction, hold it over that area until the movement stops.

The Etheric Weaver balances and aligns the whole meridian system, the chakras and heals blockages and rents in the etheric field.

Etheric weavers may also be used for personal healing, helping loved ones and friends, space clearings, pets, plants, long distance healing, meditation and awareness.

The Etheric Weavers are designed by H.H. Jetsun Gyalwa Jampa Gonpo and handcrafted by Western Buddhist monks and nuns.  Visit their website for more information.

Here is a very powerful message we all need to take to heart.

Heart Beat of Mother Earth – (With A Beautiful Native American Chant)

Lyrics to Cherokee Morning Song:
“We n’ de ya ho, We n’ de ya ho,
We n’ de ya, We n’ de ya Ho ho ho ho,
He ya ho, He ya ho, Ya ya ya
“We n’ de ya ho
Freely translated: “A we n'” (I am), “de” (of), “Yauh” –the– (Great Spirit), “Ho” (it is so).” – Robbie Robertson

New Moon & Spiritual Bathing

Rivers of Life - Dream Card

In the great creation myths water was seen as a divine, nurturing, life-giving, cleansing, and renewing force.

We are all connected through the cycles of the ocean tides, the healing rains, and the life sustaining power of water. Every flowing river, stream, lake or natural spring has the power to refresh, calm, and balance our energies. Water’s spiritual energy can be very transformative and many people all over the world take part in some form of spiritual bathing.

A spiritual bath usually combines water, prayer, chants, sacred plants, herbs, stones, honey, or milk to cleanse away all negative thoughts and emotions that may be at the root of physical, spiritual and emotional illness.

Below is a New Moon spiritual bath ritual for manifesting a new job, to birth a new project, or begin a new phase of life.

On the day of the new moon gather some local flowers and herbs such as rose petals, lavender, marigolds, jasmine, plantain, strawberry leaf, chamomile, and basil are good choices. Simmer the herbs in a pot of water and strain into a container.

After sundown when the night sky is completely dark, it is time to prepare your bath:

  • Prepare your bath while meditating on what you wish to manifest. Pour the herbal flower infusion into your bath.
  • Put on some relaxing music and light some candles.
  • Keep your mind focused on the desired outcome during your bath. Use a wooden bowl to pour the bathwater over yourself while saying prayers, chanting, singing or meditating.
  • Think about the new moon: what would you like to bring to fruition, and how will you accomplish or manifest your dreams.
  • After your bath give a prayer of thanks.

“Think of yourself as a growing plant. A plant puts forth beautiful blooms when it has the energy to do so. The more it is fed, the less energy it needs for growth. If at any point your growth requires too much effort, try to find the needed nourishment. This is your responsibility. The river of life will take you to many places, but you must feed yourself along the way.” – Sandra Ingerman – A fall to Grace.

“And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.” – Black Elk

Earth, Teach Me
Earth teach me quiet – as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering – as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility – as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring – as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage – as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation – as the ant that crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom – as the eagle that soars in the sky.
Earth teach me acceptance – as the leaves that die each fall.
Earth teach me renewal – as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself – as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness – as dry fields weep with rain.
