How to Know When Your Chakras Need a Tune-Up

While some don’t put much stock in chakras, I say it can never hurt to take the possibility of such things into account.

For me, having worked with acupressure for years, while also experiencing acupuncture well over a dozen times, I know there’s something to it. I also know we’re all entirely constructed of energy. So why wouldn’t there be a few main “hubs” within us where all energies unite? Personally, I think it makes us even more amazing so I completely dig the idea of it.

Consequently, if you’re experiencing any of the “symptoms” noted in red, perhaps you might want to consider what a nice Chakra Balancing Meditation, Acupressure Session, or Acupuncturist could do for you. Seriously, it’s a really amazing thing to work with.

You Have 4 Kinds Of Soul Mates. Here’s How To Recognize Each One

By Melissa Lindsay Freedman

types of soul mates

“A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.” — Elizabeth Gilbert

You find a soul mate, or a spiritual partner, when you least expect it. Soul mates are the people who mirror you, make you aware of your repetitive patterns, and propel you forward on your journey. Being more aware of the different types of soul mate relationships you’ll encounter in life can help us take advantage of those opportunities and develop deeper connections. Below are four types of soul mates I’ve identified:

1. HEALING SOUL MATES

These are friends who arrive with intention and provide you with life lessons that clear blocks from your past by mirroring you. Healing soul mates show up by divine timing — exactly when we most need to learn what they have to teach.

These friends help us learn how to move forward. A healing friendship exists only as long as your purposes are aligned.

How do you recognize one?

When the relationship or friendship escalates fast. This type of friend usually shows up when you are dealing with repetitive patterns and attempting to work through old issues.

How do you nurture this relationship?

Know up front that this friendship might not last. Like all relationships, it only works if the two of you can respect each other’s need for space and come together with understanding at other times. The intense bond can be redolent of a sibling or romantic relationship. The friendship may have lots of ups and downs, but if you can take the good with the bad, this type of relationship will be very fruitful.

2. PAST-LIFE SOUL MATES

Because these people might have been a lover or soul mate in a past life, the relationships feel easy and comfortable. The connection is instant. You might feel like you will be friends forever — no matter how much time passes or how far apart you are geographically — and you’re probably right. This friendship will likely last for a lifetime because you will never want to run or hide from these friends.

These relationships can be carefree, but they also shape us. They teach us to trust and believe in ourselves. In this dynamic, both people feel comfortable telling each other anything. Nothing is off limits. You are accepted for who you are.

These are the friends who help you grow into the person you’re meant to be, and have the special ability to propel you toward your destiny without pain or suffering. Often, we try to turn these relationships romantic, but it is usually impossible. There’s a lack of physical attraction or a desire to sustain and protect your friendship.

How do you recognize one?

You meet this type of person when you’re truly being yourself. Past-life soul mates appear when you’re in your element and you don’t hold anything back. They always have your best interests at heart and will stop at nothing when asked to help you accomplish your dreams. This type of friendship will last a lifetime.

How do you nurture this relationship?

Stay connected. Check in by email or phone, just to say you’re thinking of them. These people come in and out of your life when you need to be directed, and they always bring love and fun. They help bring you back to your inner desires and reconnect you with your abilities. They are crucial in shaping you into the best person you can be.

3. KARMIC SOUL MATES

These people, too, are connected to you through a past life. These connections are deep and karmic, and often painful, as they involve ego struggles. Ego pain must be endured, because it is the point. Working through the relationship and learning to overcome suffering is often the only resolution.

How do you recognize one?

Karmic soul mates have a twinlike connection. In times of intense emotion, you actually feel what they feel. Often, these mates have been reincarnated and are reliving some karma to break a negative cycle.

How do you nurture this relationship?

Be aware of the energy you emit, and do your best to remove your ego. If you focus on the positive aspects of the relationship, you will draw positivity from this person. Remove your ego by focusing on what is best for the both of you. Do your best to give unconditional love and understanding to your partner. Unconditional kindness will make your soul mate feel at ease.

4. TWIN FLAMES

Twin flames work together to overcome emotional and spiritual barriers. They can talk for hours without running out of things to say. They think alike, finish each other’s sentences, and naturally do things as a pair. This relationship transcends the ego.

When you meet a twin flame, you get a sense of wholeness from the relationship. Not everyone meets their twin flame as a lover, but those who do will enjoy this relationship for the rest of their lives.

How do you recognize one?

You’ll feel like you have known the other person for many lifetimes, and you will rarely want to be apart. Before long, twin flames start to make collective decisions on everything.

How do you nurture this relationship?

The most important aspect of a twin flame relationship is honesty, but relating to your twin flame feels natural and easy. You can probably easily communicate even without words. When both are completely themselves, twin flames can overcome anything.

Every one of these relationships has the potential to end in heartbreak, but each one is also an opportunity to resolve and change your relationship karma. Every relationship that you learn from, and end by moving forward with love, can be marked as a success. It doesn’t have to last forever to serve its purpose.

10 Dream Symbols You Should Never Ignore

1. FLYING

Dreams of flying often indicate the need to reach ambition. Where are you going? How are you getting there? Are you having trouble navigating through life? Flying dreams tend to leave us recharged when we wake. There is a feeling of freedom and being able to accomplish anything in our way.

2. WATERFALLS

Dream Symbols You Should Never Ignore

When we dream of water it usually conveys the emotional state of the mind. Water symbolizes cleansing and purity. To dream of waterfalls is a great omen. This represents new beginnings as the old is washed out.

If you see waterfalls in your dreams, ask yourself these questions: Is the waterfall a small one or a large one? How are you perceiving your obstacles? Is the waterfall in a dark jungle or a beautiful beach?

3. TEETH

Dreams with teeth are very common. Not all teeth dreams symbolize aging. Pulling of teeth symbolizes something that needs to come out, while rotten teeth symbolize the holding of fear and anxiety. Dreaming of falling teeth are the most typical of all teeth dreams. They are usually derived to new situations that cause stress: a new job, fear of loss, lack of power in a relationship, or lies that are being kept hidden.If you see teeth in your dreams, ask yourself these questions: How do you feel about your teeth? We use our teeth to nourish the body. How are we nourishing our lives?

4. DEATH

Dreaming with death is more common than most people admit. As morbid as it feels, to dream of death usually symbolizes the ending of something. Death is the termination of ego parts. There is the death of anxiety and anger. The death of a situation. There is the death of an idea allowing for the birth of another. Dreaming of death or dying can be a psychological aspect of working tremendous changes in emotions.

If you see death in your dreams, ask yourself these questions: Where you the one who died? Was it a loved one? These dreams can also be guidance from a departed loved one trying to give comfort.

5. PREGNANT

Dreaming of being pregnant symbolizes a major growth and development. It can be geared to future projects and desires.

If you visualize pregnancy in your dreams, ask yourself these questions: What are you trying to create? What transformation are you encountering in your waking life? Are you pregnant with possibilities? Pregnant dreams can bring fruitful ideas for a job or relationship.

6. HOUSES

Dreams of houses symbolize the self and the different aspects of personality. Depending on the type of house or the different rooms the interpretation can deepen. Houses are about security and comfort. An attic symbolizes hidden memories, while a basement can mean intuition and the unconscious mind.

If you see houses in your dreams, ask yourself: How are you taking care of your body? How do you perceive yourself out in the world?\

7. MONEY

Money dreams can allow us to wake with such gratitude. Dreaming with money is about luck and how we perceive our self-worth. Winning the lottery symbolizes a change in lifestyle while dreaming of giving money away is a fear of loss. Money dreams pertain to the core of our emotions towards the abundance and prosperity. Financial stability or losses are often stress factors in our lives.

If you see money in your dreams, ask yourself: Did you lose your job? Are you in debt? What would you do if you won the lottery? The relationship with finances is one that rarely leaves the mind during waking moments. Money symbolizes the flow of life.

8. ADULTERY

Dreaming of adultery signifies sexual desires and urges that are repressed or are needing to be expressed. These type of dreams also carry abandonment and fears, self-worth issues, and an unconscious acceptance of a problematic relationship.

If adultery appears in your dreams, ask yourself: Are you afraid of losing a loved one? Are you unhappy in your own relationship? How do you feel about your body and desires?

9. FIRE

Fire dreams can have several meanings depending on the context of the dream. Seeing fire in a distance symbolizes desire and transformation, while playing with fire can be a warning of risky activities. If you dream of starting a fire it symbolizes anger that is being repressed.

Ask yourself: Do you avoid risky situations? Do you spend your day putting out fires?

10. NAKED

Dreams of being naked are very common. They connect to our fear of being exposed. If the dream is about someone else being naked it signifies “the naked truth” of a situation or foretell an illicit affair. It can also mean the loss of respect. Nakedness is about accepting flaws and imperfections. Just like in waking moments it is about how much is exposed to the world of the self.

If you are naked in a dream, ask yourself: Are you afraid of being seen for who you are? Are you over exposing yourself?

Dreams represent episodes of our lives that can be analyzed in millions of ways, and the dreamer is the only one who can figure out the true emotional state of the dream. These are only a few suggestions into the world of night visions; the mind, body and spirit are intertwined and how we perceive the self plays over and over during our sleep.

The mind will try desperately to dictate, through short visions, how our emotions are being played. Anxiety or joy can change the way we sleep. It’s up to us to truly be aware how we carry ourselves during waking ours.

“Dreams…are invariably seeking to express something that the ego does not know and does not understand.” – Carl Jung

15 Common Animal Spirit Messengers and Their Meaning

BY GOSTICA

Spirit Messengers

Animals have an important purpose on this earth. They walk alongside us as teachers, messengers and as givers of light and love. They help us to understand the world that we live in and they teach us so much about what was here before us and what will be here after us.

Animals are conscious, sentient beings and it is important that we treat all living creatures with the same dignity and respect that we expect.

The ancients have always regarded animals as being sacred and their behaviour was often used as clues and signs at to what Mother Earth might be up to.

By watching the behaviour of animals, we can get a better understanding of the energy around us and a deeper insight into intuitive messages and signs.

Just like we have spirit guides, we also have spirit animals. Often spirit animals will come into our lives to give us a message or to teach us something about our own ability and strength.

Sometimes an animal will come into our lives for a brief period of time as a way to signal us as to something that we need to pay attention to.

The strong hawk has keen eyes and strong wings. If you continually see hawks or images of hawks, it may be a sign that you need to look at something more closely before proceeding.

It may also be a sign that a strong or important teacher or lesson will be unfolding in your life shortly.

Natural Skin Care – My Newest Venture

Calleen Wilder

Natural Skin Care

I thought I’d take a minute and let all of you in on my new, and terribly exciting, news.  As many of you know I’ve always been seriously “into” Natural Healing via Natural Products.  It’s a passion I began developing about 30+ years ago.

Since then I’ve worked with various products and have learned a lot about what works well on my super sensitive body, versus what puts me in bed for several days detoxing (sigh).  Being a sensitive really stinks sometimes.  Still, I’ve learned.

Well… since the first of this year I’ve been blessed to be able to begin working (very hard) on developing a Natural Skin Care line.  One that I’ll begin by marketing on Amazon.

Now granted, sometimes I have to use a preservative in anything moisture-based in order to avoid my products from becoming virtual petri dishes. Yet when I do, rest assured I’ve studied long and hard the various alternatives I have… both natural and chemical.  In the end, I always choose the most effective product, used in the least amount possible in order to keep it effective.

Thus, I’ve learned a lot.  The lab and chemist I’m working with have also taught me a lot.  But know, as many things as I can keep all-natural I will.  BUT… whenever I have to add a chemical you’ll know precisely what that chemical is and why I use it.  I feel that empowers you to chose whether to use the product or not.  Bottom line is, I refuse to hide what’s in any of my products even though I could.

Still, I’ve kept all unnatural things to a bare, but effective, minimum…
because I know what you put on your skin goes into your skin.

Anyway, since some of you have had problems getting in touch with me lately, this is why. It’s been a long and arduous path of learning and qualifying on Amazon to even be able to use them to market this type of product.

Amazon’s become super stringent about who they allow to market certain things to their clients as of late. In my mind that’s an excellent thing… but it’s taken me several months, hundreds of phone calls, a lot of form filling out, and some fairly serious upfront cash to prove to them I’m serious and my products are quality products. But I’m finally “in”. YAY!

I’ll keep all of you informed on this blog, and also via brief notes (provided you’ve signed up to get them), the minute my first product “goes live”. It’ll be on sale the first week or two via an introductory offer.  AndI want all of you to be able to lock it in at the lowest price possible.  Likely the first product will be available towards the end of this month. It’s SO EXCITING.

Know too that I test all of what I offer on people of various ages and sexes in order to make sure everyone likes them, gets the results they hoped for AND hopefully more, and were not negatively affected in anyway by the product. So yes, I have my guinea pigs… of the human variety.

Wish me luck.  I can’t wait to hear what you think of my products!

Aromatherapy

Smell is known to be the strongest sense for eliciting emotion. Think of the smell of your grandmother’s kitchen… or your grandfather’s cigar or pipe… or even that lilac bush that bloomed every spring just outside your bedroom window. HEAVEN!

Here’s a list I stumbled upon that tells you what Essential Oil to use for whatever emotion you’re trying to either heal or experience more of.
