There are times when we go through difficult situations and we are so caught up in it that we forget what we should be thankful for. Of course it is easy to forget when your mind is filled with worries and stress. But then there are times when it feels so darn good to your heart that you just want to jump of joy and float away into the clouds. Ok, maybe some of you don’t feel that and maybe I just sound crazy, but it does happen to me. The weirdest thing is it happens to me the most not when I literally make myself think of what I should be thankful for, but at times when I simply do something that I enjoy. When I work on my paintings I like to listen to happy upbeat music, and for some reason the choice of music mainly is always Russian music. Go figure, because even though I fluently do speak, read and write in that language I still never really have a reason to listen to that music, or do anything in that language other then speak with my own parents who would refuse to speak to me in English. The moment I start to paint my mind switch to Russian tunes and so there goes my ipod playing Russian beats. I immerse myself into the painting not even paying attention to what the songs are until all the sudden I feel so good inside. I realize how wonderful it is to have the time to actually do something that I love. I stop what I’m doing and simply become thankful for everything I have whether it’s small or not.
Just think for a moment how much we take for granted. I realize that I need to give thanks to God, my angels that are always around me, and spiritual guides who always guide me. I realize that because of them I was able to survive the hard times, because of them I am still finding things that are positive in my life. Because of everything that has happened to me in my life good or bad I am who I am today. I light my candle for my angels, I pray with thanks to all the beautiful beings out there that have been part of my life and who have given me this chance to grow as a being myself. I thank them for continuously guiding me on my path in this life towards more and more explorations.
Don’t forget to be thankful not only to people around you but the energies that have gotten you here today. When you get into sticky situations think about it before acting upon it. What does this situation wants me to take from it? What do I need to learn here, and how will it benefit me as a lesson in the future.
I thank all my Angels, Guardian Angels, Arch Angels, Reiki Spirits and Spiritual Guides for being in my life and continuing surround me as I grow and learn my life lessons.
I lay in my bed starring at the ceiling, sifting through my thoughts. All the worries popping up like giant bubbles, swirling around me. Can’t seem to find an answer to solution and I feel anxiety creeping up on me. I decide to close my eyes and take 10 deep breaths, letting go of the thoughts for a moment. Since I’m so desperate to get away from anxiety -my breaths are extremely deep and I take them very slow. By the time I get to 10 I feel very relaxed and like I’m floating, that might be the effect of hyperventilation but it feels good. I feel like I have been lifted of the bed and I’m floating in a warm bubble of comfort. My body feels like it’s buzzing and I feel a warm sensation going through my body, there’s no thoughts, I’m just there. I imagine colors to see what color sticks to me the most- and the only color that keeps showing up is purplish –pink with green edges. It’s like looking through a beautiful crystal at the sunlight. This beautiful light gives me positive feeling, and I notice myself smiling. I open my eyes and in the dark I see for a glimpse second that color softly fade away on the wall in front of me. Did I just dream this, did it really happen, was this the beautiful energy of a spirit that came to help me? Without too much thinking I turn over and go to sleep. Falling into deep sleep, feeling my body very heavy and no thoughts of worry- I just feel at total peace. Whatever it was- it was amazing, it feels great to feel blissful and peaceful even for a moment- we don’t get to feel it very often with our everyday demanding life.
Did you know that listening to uplifting music with happy tunes clears the energy in your house, brings better positive vibes and lifts your mood? When you starting to feel like you're having too much tension at home with loved ones or even just feeling down yourself, it's time to clear the energy in your home. Reiki can clear the negative energy and give your living space a much more warm and welcoming vibes. Feng Shui can also help with that but you won't feel the changes as much as Reiki would give you. Feng Shui energy changes are more subtle. Once you have cleared you home of negative energy, you can ask for a reiki clearing as well. And don't forget to cheer your self up with a nice upbeat, happy music that makes you happy time to time. First, open your blinds every morning to fill your home with sunshine, this is a great energy already, darkness isn't a welcoming energy. Open your windows, even if its cold- by letting fresh air in for a little bit - this will fill your home with new and refreshing atmosphere in your house. Just like when you are outdoors at the beach or park and you breath in the fresh air- it lifts your spirits and calms you down. Turn on a radio or your favorite Ipod music while you're getting ready in the morning, by the time you'll go out the door you're mood will be great and you will face the day in much better mood. Reiki clearing and cleansing can be done when ever you feel like your home needs help in clearing the negative energy that has accumulated over time. Don't forget sage is also very good to cleanse the house of negative energy and negative spirits that might be in your home or around you!!!
Have a great day all :) J.S.
