A Prayer for Malaysian Flight 370

1 Comment

Like most of us, I’ve been caught up in this mystery surrounding Malaysian Air Flight 370.   In our hyperconnected world, it seems incomprehensible that a jumbo jet could simply disappear without a trace.  There’s plenty of speculation on what may or may not have happened – that will be for the experts to determine.

Some clients have asked me if I’ve “gotten” anything via my sensitivities.  All I’ve been able to pick up on is a heavy, thick fog – something impossible to pierce. This may represent water, I’m not sure.  I also get a sense of sadness from the pilot, although it may be a state he felt during whatever happened.

One thing is crystal clear:  the agony of  the families can be felt all over the world. What they are enduring is beyond comprehension.

At times like these, we (and they) feel powerless.  But here is one small thing we can each do:  envision the family members encased in white light. Send them prayers, loving thoughts, any kind of healing.  The cumulative affect can be felt.  Really.

It’s been scientifically proven that the energy of prayer (or whatever you want to call it) is a real thing.  Tests have been done which show that hospital patients who are prayed for remotely experience improved healing.  They don’t have to believe in it themselves, or even know its being done – but they reap the benefits.

So whatever your spiritual persuasion, take a moment right now to send a positive thought in the direction of the families.

As for their missing loved ones, my belief is that they are being soothed and healed on the Other Side.  What they experienced was a moment of fear – but that moment was an instant in eternity.  It has passed and they are now wrapped in the warmth of the source.  I wrote about this aspect (and others) of the Afterlife in my book.

When tragedy strikes, those left behind are overwhelmed with worry about what their loved ones experienced.  The question I most get in those situations is, “Are they OK?”   I’m here to tell you that they are.  And that their families will be one day, too.

In the big picture. I believe that this awful mystery will serve to improve certain material things in our world: technology, aviation issues, how governments share information.  When the Titanic sank, the scale of that incident triggered a major shift in our perception of the class system, as well as improving maritime safety (every ship now MUST carry sufficient lifeboats).  Despite the agonizing circumstances surrounding its loss, Malaysian Air Flight 370 will serve a similar helpful purpose that will benefit others.  It’s small comfort right now, but its something.

But in the meantime, hold the families in the white light of love and protection.  It helps.

Pump Up Your (Protective) Volume

No Comments

I had a client here the other day who felt every little thing, way too much. She cried for no reason, couldn’t sleep and generally didn’t feel comfortable in her own skin.  I could see – and feel—that her energy layers were too, for lack of a better word,  “thin.”

We all have a barrier that protects us from the slings and arrows of daily life.  It’s like an extra skin and helps us stay balanced when stuff is being thrown at us.  When its healthy, we feel strong and stable.

But when the world throws a haymaker, that energy layer wobbles and thins out.  For me, I’ll feel like I have “holes” punched in me.

Like this....
Like this….

I feel raw, sore on the outside and the inside.  Everything hurts.

This is a real phenomenon.  Most of us will feel this weak, sick sensation only when we’re struggling with loss, grief, hard times.  But other people like my client are habitually in this state.   They need to pump up the volume on this energy layer.  Like putting mousse in your hair to achieve 80s-level fabness.

HELL, yeah....
HELL, yeah….

This is a great exercise for anyone who’s feeling a little pummeled, or who needs to achieve greater daily “stability.”  It’s also a sweet trick to do before heading into any sticky family encounters, meetings with irritating people or situations that make you feel vulnerable.

First, settle down and take some deep breaths.

Continue to breathe quietly and steadily.  Now envision a small bubble of white light starting to emanate from your center.  See it growing a little bit more with each breath.

The bubble continues to grow from your center until it reaches outside your arms.  Another few breaths and it reaches your knees….down to your feet, over your shoulders, over the top of your head.  You’re now inside a protective egg of light.

With each breath, this beautiful bubble extends outside of you a little bit more.  The inside of this bubble is peaceful, sheltering, warm.  You feel strong and safe with this healthy, whole layer of energy surrounding you.

th

Nothing negative can get past it to affect you; bad energy, harsh words, whatever, just bounce right off it.    Know that you can move through your day feeling strong and centered.  You are clear and protected.

Now go through your day like the Warrior Princess (or Prince) that you are.

Talk to the Bubble…

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve kept a journal.  From high school through my early adulthood, I spent hours filling dozens of spiral notebooks with every random event, meaningful song lyric and painful moment.  It was my comfort, my friend, my addiction.  And as I moved out of the dorm, into my first apartment(s), I carted them all around in a couple of plastic milk crates.

A few years ago, when I was packing to move again, I randomly pulled out a few of those spiral notebooks, sat down and had a good read.  The pain of my college years leapt off the pages and brought back a ton of memories (OK, I was a bit of a drama queen).  It was hard reading them, realizing how sad and frustrated I had been.  After a couple hours, I realized that I had been carrying pain around with me.  Literally.  So I dragged those crates downstairs and threw just about every one of my journals in the dumpster (I kept a few for laughs, because nothing makes you glad to be older than reading your 16-year old self. Holy crap).

For me, that was a liberating moment.  I never realized how attached I’d become to those notebooks, fearing that if I didn’t have them with me, I’d somehow “forget” my life.  That ceremonial dumping made me realize that I didn’t need those painful reminders — I had lived through them.  Constantly hanging on was not going to serve me.

So I let go.

Those journals were tangible baggage.  But what are you carting around from the past that no longer does anything for you?   How many milk crates are taking up space in your head?

That's a lot of space that could be put to better use...

There’s a great exercise that I just discovered to help free yourself of any situation, painful memory, person or whatever is putting a negative splotch on your life:

1)  Picture that person/situation/thing in your mind’s eye.  And here’s the key thing — remain unemotional about it.  Emotion is like sugar to a toddler; it amps up the energy and makes it hard to manage.

Yup, I knew that Ring Ding was a bad idea....
Yup, I knew that Ring Ding was a bad idea….

If the thought of that bad breakup still makes you start clenching up inside, take a moment to breathe.  Now try again.  Maybe make them/it appear like a static picture.  Once you have the image in your head, put it in a bubble of white light.  Call this Part A.

2) Put an image of yourself in a bubble of light, too.  Again, remain unemotional about it.  It’s just a picture of you (aren’t you glad you combed your hair?)  This is Part B.

3) Bring the A and B bubbles together,and attach them within a figure eight.

Like this....

4) Now, imagine you’ve got a big pair of scissors and you cut the figure in half, letting Part A just float away, softly, into the light.

Up, up and away....!
Up, up and away….!

I heard of a woman who used this exercise to keep her neighbor — whom she liked — from incessantly playing the piano.  She didn’t know how to tactfully ask him not to practice, so she “released” the image of the neighbor playing….and guess what?  The neighbor suddenly curtailed his sessions dramatically.  And no cops had to be called!

Now, with some things, it may take you a couple attempts to really feel like you’ve rid yourself of its past influence and gotten it out of your energetic field.  You may run into your ex unexpectedly and have a setback.  Just do the exercise again.  I guarantee that with each attempt, their power over you will be dramatically reduced; and when you see your ex with their new honey, you’ll be able to be all cool and calm…and not want to put a shiv in their side.

I’d love to hear how this worked for you, so hit me up in the Comments section….
