Love Thy Neighbor

Do you ever feel bothered by your neighbors? If so, perhaps you will be able to relate to my story here…

My intention is to send loving good vibes to my neighbors, even when – no, especially when – they do insensitive things that affect me negatively. However, when their carcinogenic cigarette smoke, toxic lighter fluid fumes, heart-breaking smells of dead animal flesh cooking, and offensive sounds of foul language all waft on the nice breeze across the property line and in through my open window, my best intentions are seriously challenged.

As I close the window, I feel irritation and anger that once again I cannot get fresh air and hear the lovely birdsong. I know that the negative energies arising in me are not healthy for me, and I do believe that energies radiate out to others. But, it is one thing to understand the energetic principles involved, and a whole other thing to be able to practice loving kindness in the moment of feeling triggered.

If you also feel challenged by your neighbors, here are a few practices that can help you to find equanimity, love, and compassion…

At the moment you first feel triggered, pause and witness your emotions with loving attention. Breathe, and cultivate compassion for yourself first. Next, remind yourself that the other person is doing the best they can with the light that they have to see by. They probably are not even aware that their behavior is bothering you. In fact, they might even feel bad if they knew that they were causing you grief.

Try to let go of any judgments you may be feeling towards them. And finally, send them love, compassion, peace, and healing energies. Notice how much better you feel after doing that. Kindness and compassion transform you, and they feel so much better than irritation and anger.

I hope this post was helpful to you.

Double Coffee Days Ahead

Are you in need of some special sanctuary time? If yes, you will benefit from reading my upcoming book…

I have decided to continue blogging regularly while writing Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life, so it is going to be double coffee days ahead for me!

Do you drink coffee? Did you know it has many healing benefits? Packed with health-giving antioxidants, coffee also has a peculiar way of connecting us with positivity and with unity consciousness. Read more in my previous article, “Coffee is Good Medicine.”

Dear You,

My new book, Reaching for Orange, is for ~

~ people who work with traumatized populations such as teachers who work with traumatized children; social workers who work with trauma; advocates who work with abused women; therapists who work with wounded people; doctors; nurses; medical assistants; those who respond to emergencies, natural disasters, and crimes; and those who work with prisoners and veterans…

~ people who are agonizing over what is happening to this sacred planet Earth and to the animals and to the abused children, and so on…

~ people who are highly sensitive persons (HSPs) and are struggling to survive in the workplace that is not suited to their sensitivities, and people who are non-HSPs, who are stressed and burnt out in their jobs, and/or are experiencing disharmony with their co-workers…

~ people who are caring for the dying: as caregivers, family members, social workers, chaplains, nurses, aides, and doctors…

~ and anyone else who needs a special sanctuary where they can nourish themselves deeply… a place where they can connect with the Divine Source of healing energies.

This book, Reaching for Orange, is that sanctuary.

Enter the Green Sphere

Do you have any heavy feelings that you would like to dissolve? Are you feeling dense on any level?

I created the following visualization with guided imagery to help dissolve any physical, mental, or emotional pains you may be experiencing now. It will especially help to ease any tight feelings in your chest or gut.

Read the visualization out loud in a soft, soothing tone of voice. Then close your eyes, breathe naturally, and place one hand on your heart and the other hand on your belly. Allow yourself to simply feel what you feel. Please share any questions or comments here, down below where it says “Leave a Reply.”

Visualization to Dissolve Heaviness on Any Level

Settling in… getting really comfortable… breathing naturally… and allowing effortless relaxation to flow, from your head… down to your toes… and traveling out into space… somewhere out in the universes… in the fields of stars… and arriving at a temple made of blue crystals… in the center of the temple there is an emerald green sphere… enter the sphere and sit inside it…

… sitting in the emerald green sphere… in the center of the temple made of blue crystals… out in the stars… tuning in to any feelings and sensations… and noticing any images… scents… sounds… tastes… really feeling… and opening to the crystal energies… the healing light… noticing any places in your body or mind or heart that feel tense… allowing the healing crystalline energies to lighten any tension… feeling the tension dissolving… feeling the heaviness becoming light… allowing the density to lighten… feeling yourself healing and relaxing in that light…

… and then coming back out of the green sphere… leaving the blue crystal temple… traveling back through the stars… through the lightness of space… and coming back down fully into your body… feeling connected with the sacred Earth beneath you… and feeling centered and grounded in your being…

 

May All Beings Be Free of Suffering.

14 Benefits You May Receive from Reading The Tejaswini Ramayana

Imagine if you were suddenly banished to the forest for fourteen years. How would you react?

In the ancient story from India called the Ramayana, the Avatar Rama was suddenly banished to the forest for fourteen years, on the day his father, King Dasaratha, was supposed to crown him as heir to the throne. The human drama that caused the exile, as well as all of the resulting actions, make the Ramayana an exciting read.

To date, there are more than three hundred recorded Ramayanas. You may receive many benefits from reading my new version, The Tejaswini Ramayana: The Way of Rama in the Shakahara StarFire Universes, including (but not limited to) the following fourteen benefits:

1. While reading this book, you may experience pleasant sensations, such as tingling, in your body or even around your body, particularly just above the top of your head. These sensations are a sign that you are being spiritually elevated.

2. While reading this book, you may begin to notice positive changes (subtle or dramatic) in your daily life, in terms of your thoughts, words, intentions, and actions. These are also signs that you are being spiritually elevated.

3. By the time you finish reading the Epilogue, you may feel as though you have been elevated to the Highest Love State. When you feel like you love everyone and everything, that is a sign that you are in the Highest Love State.

4. Reading this book can bring about an activation of Cosmic Shakahara StarFire Radiant Healing Consciousness. You may feel the healing warmth in the palms of your hands, which is a sign that healing energies are flowing through you.

5. Reading this book can awaken qualities such as Hope, Inspiration, Innovation, and Creativity. As these beautiful positive energies arise, quite naturally there occurs a reduction of fear, anger, and sadness.

6. Through reading this book, you can experience more trust about life. It will help you to understand how everything happens for a reason, according to a greater plan.

7. Reading this book may help you to accept what is happening in your life, as you experience the book’s heroes facing the challenges of the human condition.

8. Reading this book can help you to come to terms with death – both the deaths of your loved ones, and your own death.

9. Reading this book may help you to face grief and other difficulties – knowing that, like the heroes in the story, you are never alone in your pain. A force greater than you is always with you.

10. Reading this book will give you assurance that there is always hope for redemption – that even the greatest sinners can be forgiven, healed, and loved.

11. The spiritual practices listed at the beginning of the book will help you to keep raising your vibrations while reading this book – and beyond.

12. Reading this book will give you hope that human nature can be elevated – that human beings can heal their brains and remember their divine heritage… and thus overcome their negative habits and low vibrations.

13. Reading this book will give you faith that the Forces of Goodness and Light are stronger than the forces of darkness.

14. Although this book may be shocking to some of the millions who love the traditional Ramayana, in this version some changes were made to the original story in order to elevate the characters and the readers to the Highest Love Vibrations. Remember, anytime you feel like you love everyone and everything, that is when you are in the Highest Love Vibrations!
