#35 Habitual disturbing emotions are hard to stop through counter actions. Armed with antidotes, the guards of mindfulness and mental alertness destroy disturbing emotions like attachment at once, as soon as they arise. -- This is the practice of the Bodhisattvas. (JAPID- Jealousy, Anger, Pride, Ignorance, Desire)

I've been working on this a lot lately. I realized a long time ago that I don't want to have any of those troublesome feelings (jealousy, anger, pride, etc), so I've always pushed them down. I show my happy face for as long as I can, until I explode. Then whoever is within sight of me gets a good idea of what my ego really thinks of them.

I've tried a couple of different ways to deal with these thoughts and…

Hey guys, this is the last time that I will post my daily reading in this group. I will continue to be active here, but posting in multiple groups every day has become a bit of a chore. I will continue to offer my Angel Tarot-Inspired Meditation/Prayer of the Day. I will post it in one group only. You are more than welcome to come check out my group https://www.facebook.com/groups/reikirenewal/.  Once you join the group, the Meditation/Prayer of the Day will show up in your news feed.  I look forward to seeing you there. Comment, drop a post, spread the love.

These two cards jumped out of the deck as I was shuffling. The Angels have a lot to say. ☺

#35 of the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva

Image
I am on a lifelong spiritual path, and recently, I've been seeking some spiritual guidance. Churches make me really uncomfortable. I really don't have the money to pay for training courses or to attend seminars, so I've been consulting the Google for inspirations on how to become the best version of myself. I think my friend, Mon Chi is psychic or something, because he sent me some things to read and study yesterday, when my need for guidance was perhaps a little higher than 'normal'.  I'm really too ADD to sit and read through everything he sent all at one time, so I skimmed through it all. The thing that really caught my eye was this article, which you can read the for yourself on my group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/reikirenewal/. It's called "37 Practices of the Bodhisattva" by Jean Myrner. Here's a direct link to the pdf: https://lookaside.fbsbx.com/file/777%20Energy-of-the-Bodhisattvas.pdf?token=AWxqSADGm8MWmxzyezLpTOCUl7C0e_k…

Meditation is HARD!

Image
Meditation, the real, actual, clearing your mind of any and all thoughts kind of meditation is HARD!! I've done plenty of these guided 'meditations' on YouTube (guided visualizations might be a more accurate way of describing them), asking you to visualize walking through a meadow to a magical place or visualizing white light entering your body to clear out all the lower vibrating energies. These are very helpful and have worked for me for years. They really help to calm me and relax me and put me in a better mindset, but I've never really tried to do 'real' meditation. Like the Buddhists do, where they sit there and clear their minds of everything and just be.

I attempted to meditate last night. It ended up being more like a push-thoughts-out-of-my-mind over and over again session. There was a millisecond here or a half a second there when I actually accomplished having zero thoughts. As someone whose mind normally runs at least 50 different thought processes …

Thank you for giving me patience as I wait for the seeds that I've planted to sprout.

Meditation/Prayer of the Day for May 27, 2016

Image
This morning, I saged each cardfrom my Angel Tarot deck individually to cleanse the energy . I began to shuffle with the intention of picking a card for the readers of the blog, and this card fell out with the first shuffle. I normally take a picture of the card with my phone, meditate on its meaning, and make a short prayer of thanks out of the meaning. When I take a picture  with my phone, it automatically assigns the image a number in this format: IMG_2016091304_523. The first set of numbers is the date/time the picture was taken, but I've found no rhyme or reason for the last three digits.

I'm more than a little obsessed with numbers, so I decided to look up the meaning of the extension on today's photo, which was 523. The meaning followed right along with the message of today's reading. I included a link, so you can read it for yourself. http://sacredscribesangelnumbers.blogspot.com/2011/09/angel-number-523.html. Here is a link to read about the meaning of the numb…

Counting My Blessings

Image
This morning, I woke up feeling very sad and lonely, as the first and only words uttered to me as I opened my eyes were "we need sugar." I've had a problem for a long time now. I wake up with negative thoughts running through my head. Everything that anybody ever said/did to me, everything I ever said/did to anybody, my self-hate talk, it all plays like a movie on repeat over and over and over again when I first wake up. I have recently become very aware of this, and I'm doing things to help, such as replacing every negative thought with remembering three things that I'm grateful for, giving myself a Reiki treatment when the 'movie' gets scary, and using positive affirmations.

This morning was extra bad, for some reason. Maybe it has more than a little to do with the state of my hormones. I sat and cried for two hours about how sad my life was. When I was done, I felt I needed to release everything that I cried about, to let go of everything that brings my…

Thank you for opening my eyes to the unseen, for giving me psychic visions, and for revealing the truth to me. I rely heavily on my intuition, and it always leads me in the right direction. Thank you for shedding light on this situation. Thank you for helping me overcome my fears by realizing how invalid they are. With the energy of this card, I will cast away the darkness as I find the light within myself.

20 Questions for the Confused Empath

Why do I have to protect my energy? Is feeling other peoples’ emotions supposed to be a gift?If feeling others’ emotions is my “gift”, then why am I being told to block it all the time?Aren’t ’empaths’ (as the new-agers call it) here for a reason?Why is crying when other people cry part of my life purpose?Isn’t shielding myself promoting separation of you and me?Isn’t that what duality is all about?How can I connect to you if I’m protecting myself from you?Am I supposed to reflect your energy back to you?Is that why you don’t like me?Is it my job to make the energy vibrate nicely before I reflect it back to you?Will that make you like me?Is there a way to do that without feeling the painful emotions?If I AM life-force energy, then how does my energy get depleted?How can I make that stop?Is that all in my mind?What is the easiest way to replenish my own energy when I’m feeling drained?What is the easiest way to replenish the energies of the people/things around me?Is there a way to rep…

After doing each reading, I put the cards back in the deck and shuffle again, with the intention that I will see the card on the bottom of the deck (which is the card facing up when I turn the deck over). This message is for me, personally. This card was on the bottomof the deck when I turned it over, and when I shuffled, this card came out of the deck, so it is truly the message of the day for everyone reading this blog, including me.

Meditation/Prayer of the Day
Thank you for allowing me to create structure in my life.  Thank you for allowing the energy of the father-figure to enter my life, as I use that energy to plan and organize for the future. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to build my future in a stable manor.

Meditation/Prayer of the Day for May 23, 2016

Image
Today, I decided to do a past, present, future reading. Well, I didn't actually decide that, I was just following my guidance. I had the readers of the blog in mind when I was shuffling, and these three cards jumped out of the deck together. I simply used the top card from the pile that fell out (deck face-up, of course, because I'm different) as the past. The middle card was placed as the presentand the bottom card was used for the future position.
*(Card descriptions paraphrased from The Big Book of Angel Tarot by D. Virtue and R. Valentine.)*
Past - Three of Fire Take a break and reflect on your successes and plan on continuing to be successful in the future. You know that your karmic rewards and manifestations are on their way, so stop waiting for them and begin a new adventure. Time to dream big.
Present - Five of Earth Focusing on lack, whether its lack of money, lack of love, lack of peace, will simply bring more of that energy into your life. Focus on the positive and on…

Thank you for helping me realize that I am the only one holding myself back in this situation. I am free to leave this situation at any time. Thank you for helping me release my fears, my addictions, and my need for worldly things, so that I may manifest all the things in life that really make me happy. Thank you for leading me to take time to myself so that I can align myself with the vibration of what I want in life. Thank you for providing me with the means to run my business (or insert your personal financial investment) and for allowing it to be successful.

Angelic-Guided Automatic Writing Take 2

Image
Hey guys, I'm back at it again with the automatic writing. The first time I did it was so inspiring and uplifting, but for some reason, when I put the pen down, I had an overwhelming urge to cry. I wanted to try it again, making sure to protect myself before and ground myself after. I didn't physically go outside and stand barefooted, but I did visualize my red roots growing to the ground. It didn't make a difference.

I was fine until I began typing this blog, then the tears just started flowing. It was so intense, that I had to take a break and come back. This time, it didn't feel so much like someone else's feelings, but a feeling of release, which makes sense, as the angel stated that he was Raphael, and I had just given myself a pretty extensive reiki treatment before I started. I'd like to share my message with you, but due to how personal some of it is, I will leave some of it out. Enjoy reading, and comment below.

Hi. My name is Raphael. I am here to hel…

Today I Tried Angelic-Guided Automatic Writing

Today I Tried Angelic-Guided Automatic Writing




I was reading an article the other day about using automatic writing to access your intuition, angels, or guides. This is where you take some time, pick up a pen, and just write. I've been following Doreen Virtue lately and really acknowledging the angels that surround me, so I decided to do some angel-guided automatic writing. I put on a meditation video for connecting with the angels, sat in meditation for a few minutes, picked up the pen, and started writing. 

I'm not really sure if I did it right, because I was consciously aware of what I was writing and heard the words in my head before I wrote them down. I think I'm not supposed to  be aware of what I'm writing as I write it, but I could be wrong. I've only seen a YouTube video on the subject so far. The stuff I wrote down is pretty inspiring, and actually reflects on things that I've been thinking about a lot lately. I'd like to share this with you and hea…

Five More Ways to Stay Positive

 Five More Ways to Stay Positive



I previously wrote a blog post titled "Five Ways to Stay Positive", that gives five great methods for getting into a positive frame of mind. There are so many things you can do to keep your vibration high, so I will go over five more things you can do to help you get into a positive mindset.

Be grateful for everything in your life. The more you're grateful for what you have, the more good you will attract into your life. The key to abundance is gratitude. Being in a thankful mindset naturally leaves you feeling happier and more positive.Helping others naturally makes us feel better. The energy that we put out there comes back to us, so if we're acting in a positive and helpful way, more positive energy will return to us.Psychic protection is extremely important if we want to remain positive. There are so many people who rely on the energy of others to fill their own energy reserves. If you use some form of psychic protection (energy bu…

Five Ways to Stay Positive

Image
Five Ways to Stay Positive     In a world where we are surrounded by so much negativity, it can be hard to stay positive. There's negativity in the news, drama within our circle of family/friends/coworkers, stress that comes with being an adult. Nevermind all the smiley, perky people encouraging us to keep our chin up and just stay positive. How can they be so happy all the time? 
     You have to make a choice to be happy. Choose positivity. See the glass as half full. Better yet, see the glass as completely full (it is if you consider the air inside). That is clearly much easier said than done, but there are some things you can do to to get yourself into a good frame of mind:
Subliminal affirmations are positive statements spoken at a low volume in the background, with music playing in the foreground. These positive affirmations can be found on YouTube (just search for "subliminal affirmations"), and they last anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours or more. There are differ…

Ask the Angels to Guide You As You Pick a Card




 ☼☾✽ This time I was drawn to do things a little differently. I have pulled three cards. Set your intention to receive a message, then pick a card (or two). If you feel drawn to all three cards, you need all three messages. Typically, the three-card layout is for a past-present-future reading, so you can interpret the reading as such, if you feel so inclined. The messages are below. I will deliver the message in the form of a prayer or meditation of thanks, as usual, because we have EVERYTHING to be thankful for.Love and Peace, friends. ☼☾✽ 






Card 1 (left)
Five of Water

Prayer/Meditaiton: Dear God, Thank you for the prayers that remain unanswered so that I can stay on the righteous path. Thank you for helping me to let go of past issues and to see past the mistakes that were made along the way. Thank you for helping me focus on the positive aspects of the future as I move forward.
