More Love Stuff…And AcuEnergetics training in May!

The following quotes are from Ambika Wauters book Chakras and their Archetypes: Uniting Energy Awareness and Spiritual Growth.

“Relationships are the most difficult things in life to master. They require a willingness to open our hearts and let love purify us.”

A Meditation from the book:

“Release tension in your chest and focus your awareness in your heart. Repeat the words to yourself: I am love. I am love.”

rose37

Such simple instructions and yet so profound. I find it interesting that this little book has sat in my closet for years and all of a sudden last night I was guided to pick it up and read the chapter focusing on the heart chakra. I read up through this very part and knew this was all I needed to get from it at this time. I also knew I was supposed to share it today with you. I hope you enjoy practicing it during this week of love as we approach the heart-centered holiday of Valentine’s.

———————

This reminder and meditation links so perfectly with what I have been learning and practicing with my AcuEnergetics studies. We are taught to practice having an open heart and that in doing so nothing sticks to us energetically speaking (you lightworkers know what I’m talking about ;-). The low vibration energy rolls right off like water off a ducks back and does not get stuck in our energy field or create a disturbance for us. This is a new way to live in the world – just being open-hearted and NOT having to protect our heart. I know it is easier said than done and that’s why meditations like this are important so that we can strengthen that muscle of indeed having an open heart.

I also want to share that AcuEnergetics is coming back from Australia to teach for the second time ever in the USA Level 1: Skills for Living and for the first time ever in the USA Level 2: Inner Alchemy – treating yourself and others. http://www.acuenergetics.com/othertrainingandworkshops.html

This is a very unique opportunity that will be offered in Hudson, WI at Healing Waters Health Center. Over the course of 2 full weekends in May you could be trained through Level 2 AcuEnergetics! The next time they are projected to come back to the USA to teach is not until 2015 so take a look at the link above and see if spirit is calling you 😉

Want More Love In Your Life? -FREE Meditation for you-

All of us, no matter who we are or how great our life might be, could use more Love. It is the energy that fills us up and makes our heart and soul feel whole, content, and happy.

Love is healing. Love is transformational. In love we experience greater depths of ourself. We experience greater depths of being. And we touch our own divinity through the supply of love that comes through us.

heart

However, a lot of things in our human experience are conditional; tit for tat or this for that. Our hearts are not open all the time. They open and close from moment to moment based on conditions: our perceptions, our relations, and our false sense that we are not wholly loveable just as we are. We place conditional limits on ourself building them up through personal phrasing such as “Life isn’t fair.” “I never get it right.” “If only I was…”  We place conditional limits on others too, “You are a bad person.” “They deserved what they got.” “God punishes the unholy.” We are such a judgemental brood. And yet the one common theme that prevails no matter if our judgement is pointed at ourself or others is that all the thoughts and perceptions shaded in a negative light originate from within. WE experience them even when they are not about us because they are of us. We are their origin. So how does this reflect on our own well-being? Perhaps not so good depending on the levity of your daily scale being tipped between negative and positive thought. The good thing is that we have lots of room to expand in opening our heart and choosing to see love show up more in our perceptions. You can make a positive power play in shifting your internal filter of perception for “what is” to being focused in Love.

I have signed up to participate in an upcoming FREE Online Meditation series that focuses on LOVE. To experience more love, to know more love, and to be more love. Who couldn’t use a little extra love in their life!? I invite you to join as well. This is how it works– you simply sign-up using your email and creating a password. Then once the meditation begins you will receive a daily email which shares a link to access the meditation for that day. What’s nice about it is that you get to pick your own time and space to do the meditation AND for however many meditations you choose to participate in you get to make the conscious choice to open your heart and experience love. Nothing to lose and so much to gain… so why not give it a try?

Energy Medicine, put simply, is using energy to heal. It is a complementary and alternative means to achieving balance and health in your body, mind, and spirit. It is gentle, non-invasive, and holistic, working on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level of being.

It is well known that stress, emotions, and states of the mind have a direct effect on health. What happens is that the body stores energy from these experiences. Then if unhealthful energy is not naturally released it begins to accumulate and that stored energy becomes a blockage in your energetic system.  This has an effect on your overall sense of well-being and can ultimately lead to issues in your physical body.

During a session with me as your Energy Healing Practitioner I will employ the knowledge and skills that I have gained through years of study and application. In general I use hands on healing to remove blocks and restore flow. I also frequently use crystals to amplify the energy that is transmitted in a session. Through feeling and seeing into your unique energy field I am able to work with the wisdom of your body and your spirit in order to help activate your own innate ability to heal and be the best you.

In life you cannot separate your body from your spirit. Energy Medicine takes this into account. In order to maintain balance in one you must also be balanced in the other. So take time for yourself to schedule a session with me and feel the difference that balanced energy can make.
Sincerely,

            Korinn

Leaps and Bounds and Backward Steps

This past weekend I was in training for a brand new energy modality that is coming to the United States for the first time from Australia.  I am very proud to say I have now completed Level 1 of AcuEnergetics! The weekend was filled with lots of knowledge gained, lots of new experiences, and new tools to use in my current energy medicine practice.

Prior to this I have been trained in hands-on-healing through level four, two levels of crystal healing, and a little bit of craniosacral therapy as well. My intuitive sense comes most easily through my brow chakra. I am most naturally a seer so I see images and “movies” in my mind’s eye. I do receive information through feeling and knowing as well but these are not as sharp. AcuEnergetics is all about feeling so I am excited to now sharpen that sense and learn more in the next levels of training.

I feel like I have gained so much in just one weekend. I will be able to put into practice what I have learned with others and I have personally gained so much as well through my own self-exploration. It is fascinating to start to feel things and to begin to separate my “attention,” what the Chinese call Shen, from my mind. My mind is not my attention and I am not my mind. As my instructor commented several times, “It’s a shifting of gravity from being centered in your mind to being centered in your heart.” Just getting a glimpse of that this weekend has been eye-opening and profound to experience.

Although, I will say that I am surprised by how fundamentally different this approach is from the way I have currently been trained. This actually makes me even more curious to learn more! A part of me feels like I have kind of taken a step backwards because I haven’t quite been able to wrap my head around how to integrate the two or if I even can. I feel like what I know and what I am learning are on two different ends of a spectrum and that could potentially cause a struggle within myself. AcuEnergetics teaches to not shield  oneself energetically but to just have an open heart. It teaches to not follow energy and work with it but to just keep your attention in yourself and just feel. Those are just a couple of examples. What it teaches resonates with me deeply and I have even wondered about certain things myself but there are other things I have learned along my way that I can’t image working energetically without. I can’t imagine not calling in angels and spiritual guides and working as a team with them. I can’t imagine not receiving information visually and using my intuition to guide me in performing a healing and yet here I am most definitely learning another way and loving it too.

My guidance communicated to me that currently I am “student” and in time there will be space for me to keep my thoughts to myself and almost kind of ripen on them, or turn into whatever I am supposed to be. They also communicated that in the end it all will lead me home, right where I have always been heading. Home and at one with myself. So for now I can keep learning, and keep practicing, and keep being just how I am today.

I would like to note that even though I feel like this modality takes me out of the spiritual connect sense (meaning I am not working with angels and guides and sensing other beings) at the end of my training when we had all finally completed Level 1 there was a beautiful burst of fairy energy all around in front of me. I could see this with my physical eyes as little sparks of light that were flying all over the place. It was surprising and beautiful. I thought, “Wow, they must really be happy for me,” and in their expression I knew that this was a big deal for me to have completed.

I know that it is important for me to learn and work with the body and the spirit, the elements and the ether. And even though I don’t exactly know where it’s taking me, I of course keep moving ahead, one foot in front of the other, and trusting all the way.

Tan Tiens, Chakras, and Meridians Oh My!

About a week and a half ago I received a newsletter from a local healing center in Hudson, WI. At the bottom of it they advertised a free AcuEnergetics meet-up. I had never heard of AcuEnergetics so I clicked on the link and was blown away or should I  say swept away, as I was instantly drawn to it. It turns out that AcuEnergetics is a healing modality developed by a gentleman from Australia who has been studying energy for 40 years! It combines the knowledge and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Judaic knowledge from the Kabbalah, Indian Ayurveda, and western healing traditions into one complex and comprehensive healing modality.

As a healer I currently work with knowledge of the chakra system, the energy body and its layers, and crystals. I have no clue about meridians and had never even heard of tan tiens but one thing that became instantly apparent was that I wanted to learn. I have been craving new knowledge and a bump-up in my energy practice and now my quest for growth has been ignited with a passion to pursue this modality. Needless to say I am going to that free meeting.

I also want to add here that up until this point I took myself seriously, in terms of a career, as a writer and not as serious as a healer.  Being a healer has been a fun side thing while writing has been my more determined focus for a career. However, as I look back at myself 6 years ago I can see that the two actually emerged from within me at the same time; hand in hand. I have always carried these potentials inside of me, they are two aspects of myself, being a writer and being a healer. And now I feel is the time where they start to become one and I perfect my craft even further of being a healing writer.

Although I don’t exactly know where AcuEnergetics will take me it has definitely shown up on my path to take serious.  It also encourages me to take myself more serious as a healer. Perhaps that has been a confidence piece I have been missing to really give myself permission to do it as a career and not just for fun. Kind of like, I know I can do it but can I really do it? Am I good enough to get paid?

Sometimes you just have to jump with blind faith and believe in yourself, “I can do this.” Or sometimes you just have to receive from the universe the divine offering that, “Here, you can do this!”  Did I mention that AcuEnergetics is not currently in the United States at all!? That’s what really gets my attention. This modality is coming here, right now, to my neighboring town, and I am a part of it. I know that there have been years of divine preparation to align this opportunity and I get to be part of it. Lucky me 😉

Feeling a Little under the Weather

I am trying my hardest to fight off a bug with herbal teas, essential oils, vitamins, and sleep.

I remember that last year I detoxed in December and was not sick for the whole rest of the cold and flu season. That was really nice and a good reminder that what we eat directly affects our bodies immunity.‎

I have also been charging my water again as any lift in vibration helps. And of course asking the angels, ascended masters, and spirit guides to heal me. This morning I hit the snooze button twice and instead of sleeping I called on them. I could see a couple of them come in and I got a nice 20 minute session of energy pulsing to me to help boost my vibration and to help me release some forgiveness I had been harboring, which could have also been bringing my physical health down. Now that I am up and moving around I actually feel invigorated (I know, weird) and can feel drainage in the back of my throat so I know the illness is moving and that’s a good thing.

To call on your team of spirit healers to heal you:

Sit or lay in a quiet space and say, “God, Angels, Ascended Masters, and Spirit Guides please heal me.”

If you like you can put your hands on the parts of your body where you feel you need the most healing. Then simply relax and receive.

Message for the day…

Look inside yourself; to heal the world.

Stoke the fire within and trust your intuition because new things are coming to you.

At this time it is so important to achieve balance between body, mind, and spirit. Your spirit is the one that can keep you in-check if you hold on to it and pay it attention.

In which area are you out of balance most? Is it your mind, your connect to your spirit, or your body?

Choose one simple thing to do today and take a step toward restoring inner balance and that peace in your life which radiates from the inside out.

Suggestions…

For Body – Move your body more today, find time to dance, or drink more water.

For Mind – Adopt a mantra for the day and repeat it regularly in your mind. Example, “I am worthy.”

For Spirit – Send your spirit love. Take a centering breath, focus on the warmth you feel within your chest, and direct the words, “I love you” to it. Allow those words, “I love you,” to swirl and go wherever they need to go in healing your spirit.

You are cleansing yourself vibrationally by doing any of these things. And in the enjoyment of doing them you also open space within yourself that will welcome the quality of higher vibrating things to you.

Cleansing Ancestral Ties through your Tenth Chakra

Now is a time to balance and neutralize ancestral links. These are the familial ties that connect to pieces of who you are and that are rooted in the past, in the energy that you carry from your blood line. So they are not specifically yours but have most definitely been a part of you, same as your genetics or DNA. Whether these ancestral ties have manifested through you as fear, addiction, physical pain or ailments, or in the more favorable forms of character, zest for life, connection and wisdom, or quirky habits, it is time to cleanse that palette and bring it to a new caliber of being.

Many embers of your ancestors are stored within you. Be grateful for their lives and the essence of their lessons learned. Be grateful for the path they have paved and for creating a space in time for you to exist. Feel the gratitude now that you have for them in your heart. Feel gratitude fill your heart.

____________________________________________________

You too are an ancestor. A link of lineage to the future generations of your family. You are collecting divine bits of knowledge and experience that will merge as ancestral wisdom. As you stand in your own autonomy, a strong link, you are connected to those who have come before you and to those who have yet to come. This is the sacred chain of life and your importance is paramount. You are connected by blood, by breath, and by spirit. Your ancestors step forward now and offer you this unique opportunity to cleanse.

English: Street light orbs Polski: Efekt orb, ...

When you are ready speak aloud, “”Thank you ancestors for all that you have gifted myself and my family. We are grateful for your lives and for your experiences. All ties have served a purpose and all ties have had value, but now is a time for me to carry forward only those ties that serve my highest good and soul purpose.”

Visualize the 10th chakra. It is 1 and 1/2 feet under your feet and under the surface of the Earth. It appears as the color brown. It is open and ready for recalibration.

Speak and say, “I call on all ancestral ties that are for my highest good and soul purpose to illuminate in bright white light.” See these strands lighting up in your 10th chakra.

Then say, “I call on all ancestral ties that no longer serve a purpose for the highest good of myself and my family to fall away.” See these strands too, duller in color and shrinking.

Bring your attention to the brilliance of the illuminated strands and notice how their light completely fills this chakra. The white strands are getting bigger and brighter and are fully cleansing this chakra.

Feel the strands that are not illuminated sink down deeper into the Earth as they release from your chakra and from your entire energy field. They continue to sink deeper and deeper until they are fully absorbed by the Earth and you can no longer see them. Only clear space is left behind lit up by illumination.

Sit with this for as long as you feel is necessary. You may feel physical releases within your body, a lightening of your heart, or settling of your bones.

Take a nice breath in and exhale out feeling more grounded in your own being and internally balanced.

And say, “Thank you ancestors of white light.”

Working with Kali

I used to be afraid to work with Kali because she would push me to face my inner fears and challenges. A few years back when she would pop-up to work with me I would think to myself, “oh great,” and then kind of clench in anticipation of what was to come, like sitting atop a roller coaster when you are just about to plunge downward. However, in time I grew more comfortable with her learning that indeed she is a blessing.  She has helped me work through a lot of stuff and never leaves me once crap gets dumped on me and the crap is always rooted in my own fears.

Kali’s biggest lesson to me has been helping me to feel comfortable in the uncomfortable. She keeps leading me in the direction to own being ok within myself when the world outside of me is not. Being able to create the world around me in peace, love, and joy even when I see murder, and hate, and rape. As a sensitive light being those have been hard things to take and energetically there have been times where it feels like it quakes through me even though the only receptor I have of them is through the television. For so long I would turn away from these horrible acts because it was just too much for me to listen to and to absorb into my awareness. But I was wrong. That doesn’t help anyone. And this is what Kali has taught me:

1) Don’t turn away. Look at it! Look it in its eyes to see it for what it is.

2) See through it. Know what evil is – Fear, lack of love, self-hatred, and the projection onto others of these issues stemming from the turmoil of the internal self.

3) And then heal it. “I send True, Pure, and Masterful Love to you” or “God please send True, Pure, and Masterful Love to them.” See it sealed in pink light with the intention to heal and it is instant. The energy is delivered instantly.

Isn’t this kind of where the world is going? There is so much outside of ourselves we cannot control, so we are to instead empower ourself and focus on establishing our own inner sense of stability, comfort, peace, and light and unto the world our energy shall flow just through being us and healing the world one positive vibration sent at a time. Not one man can conquer the world alone but a collective of lighthearted beings together can change the course of time and history… and we will.

Thank you Kali for sharing your wisdom with me.
