Teja’s Virtual Book Launch Week! ~ Reaching for Orange!

Happy Monday, Dear Reader…

Welcome to Virtual Book Launch Week for my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life… Now Available for Order on Lulu! (It will be several more weeks until it will be available on Amazon, and it will help me greatly if you will order now on Lulu!) ~ The Facebook Event is being rather glitchy, but I am persevering!

Are you feeling depleted, stressed, or overwhelmed? Are you feeling burnt out or experiencing disharmony with others? Are you upset about the current state of the world? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I wrote this book to be a healing sanctuary for you, and I really hope you enjoy it!

People typically reach outside themselves for happiness and healing. In Reaching for Orange I share tools for reaching inside to replenish yourself and to happy up your life. Through reading this book, you will learn practices to find relief from stress or difficult emotions passing through you, and ways to connect with the Divine Source of healing energies inside you.

From the back cover of Reaching for Orange:

“Reap the benefits of Sister Teja’s many years of daily practices, in-depth studies, and expensive workshops, in the comfort of wherever you are, for only ten dollars. This book was written for people of all faiths by a spiritual helper who is not ordained by any religion, but who is a self-proclaimed nun forging her own Shakahara StarFire Tribe. Teja Shankara is trained in relaxation techniques, guided imagery tools, energy healing, and meditation practices. She is excited to share and to be helpful. Teja prays that this book will help you to happy up your life!”

Please order your copy today! And after you order on Lulu, please leave a comment to let me know that you’ve ordered it… I am really looking forward to hearing about your experience with this book… And perhaps you will consider writing a review after you read it! That would be super awesome!

May you feel happier and happier, every day, in every way!

With Much Love,
Teja

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May You Feel Passion

 

May you enjoy your roles in life.

May you be clear about what you stand for.

May your weekend be blessed with invigoration, revelation, and relaxation.

May you feel passion.

 

Dear reader,

What do you feel passionate about? Do you have clear convictions and visions? What is on your mind the most lately? And what do you most deeply want?

When I was in high school, I loved reading the news for my current events class. I felt very intrigued about everything that was happening in the world. So when it came time to go to college, I chose the Political Science major. At the time it seemed like a good fit for me, because I certainly had some fire in my blood, which I had inherited from my paternal grandfather, who was very political. He worked for a labor union and he was very passionate about the Democratic party in the state of Indiana. He and I enjoyed discussing politics, and one semester I even worked as an intern in his office, coordinating a get-out-the-vote drive.

I felt a lot of passion during elections just like my Grandpa, and I really thought that politics was my life path… But, political science majors were required to regularly read several different newspapers, and during my junior year, when the Gulf War was happening, I found myself crying every morning while reading the news. It was just so heartbreaking to read about all the bloodshed and all the mothers losing their sons. I became very upset about all the violence and corruption. So, even though I was required to read the news, I began taking breaks from it. (That was one of the early clues that I am an HSP, a Highly Sensitive Person!)

The following year, during my last semester at Butler University, I found my true passion in an Anthropology class called “Religion & Ritual Around the World.” I have been studying religion and spirituality ever since, and over the past 27 years since college, I have discovered that the fire in my blood is not for the political arena (sorry, Grandpa!), but rather it is for a mission to help elevate the human species to happier and healthier vibrations.

With each person who becomes happier and healthier, their happier and healthier vibrations radiate out and help the collective consciousness to be happier and healthier. So, I believe that my role in working to end all the senseless wars is through helping people to happy up and to heal themselves.

This weekend I will continue waiting patiently for the proof copy of my new book to arrive… Once I approve it, the book will be available for you to order. It is my deepest prayer that Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life will be helpful to many people. This book was born out of the fire in my blood to help elevate people, so we can all enjoy more happiness and peace in the world.

Do you have fire in your blood for something?

Happy Weekend to you!

With much love,
Teja

StarFire Teja’s Updated Mission Statement Video

Hello dear readers!

June has been a very productive month for me. At the moment I am in the final stages of preparing to publish my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life. While finishing up the book, I have also been working on the preparations for launching the book, such as writing a press release, updating my biography, and so on.

Today I updated my mission statement video. I am attaching it here for your viewing, and I am copying the text below the video. It is only 1.5 minutes, and my intention is that you feel happy, healing vibrations coming through the spoken words. May this video happy up your day!

 

StarFire Teja’s Mission Statement

My name is Teja Shankara and I am a spiritual helper. My mission is to help elevate the human species to happier and healthier vibrations. So, I share spiritual practices with people of all faiths.

The ancient sages of India taught the same thing that Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is within,” which means that the Divine Source of healing energies is inside each of us. When we do spiritual practices, we make contact with that Source of all Love, and then we feel really happy, and we share that happiness with others.

You will learn many ways to practice happiness by following my blog at starfireteja dot wordpress dot com.

And, my new book is all about you. I wrote this book for your healing, your replenishment, your happiness. So please check it out ~ it’s called Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life*.

Thank you for listening.

May you feel happier and happier, every day, in every way.

Guided Imagery to Send Difficult People Out to Black Holes

Are you struggling with any difficult people in your life right now?

When you are relating with a difficult person, or trying to clear them out of your energy field (if they are now gratefully in your past), the first thing to do is to realize that you are probably not ever going to change them. So, for your own peace you have to accept them, and accept yourself, exactly as you each are.

The second thing to do is to send them out to a black hole, using the tool of guided imagery. In this visualization, you are not actually wanting their physical destruction, but rather you are intending to clear their energies out of your system. Be clear that you mean them no physical harm, but you need them to clear out so that you can reclaim your own energies. When you send their energies out, you also send your own difficult thoughts, feelings, and energies out to the black hole. You are clearing out all the negativities in you that have built up in reaction to the difficult person.

The third thing to do is to visualize golden healing light pouring into you and filling you up with positive vibrations. See the golden light pulsing in all of your 37.2 trillion cells… Feel your own energies, and imagine a force field around you that protects you… Visualize all good vibes coming into you now. May healing, happiness, and love surround you.

May You Be Blessed By the Forces of Goodness!

Guided Imagery Exercise for Difficult Emotions

Are you dealing with any anxiety, fear, anger, or grief? If yes, this guided imagery exercise will help you to ride the waves of those difficult emotions until they shift or dissolve.

Sit or lie down in a quiet spot. Take a few relaxing breaths, and then begin. First, tune in and notice where you feel the emotion in your body. Second, ask yourself what that emotion feels like, looks like, and sounds like. What color is it? What texture? Is it heavy or light? What shape is it? Does it make a sound? And third, using your imagination, create a healing antidote, and notice what it feels like, looks like, and sounds like.

For example, let’s say you are feeling some anger passing through your system, and when you tune in, you feel it in your gut. It feels gripping, and you notice that it looks like heavy black tar with spikes. The shape reminds you of a panther’s head. There is a growling sound, as if it might jump out and bite you. So now create a healing antidote to this angry cat in your gut. You might imagine a warm glistening white light entering your belly and surrounding the black tar. This white light is soft and dreamy like floating clouds, yet it carries a strong healing energy. It settles down over the black image, and as it does so, you might notice that the black tar begins to shrink. Bathed in the healing energy of the white light, the anger begins to fade.

This exercise can be done repeatedly until the difficult emotion shifts or dissolves altogether. After you try this out, please come back here and share your experiences in the comments below, down where it says “Leave a Reply.”

To illustrate this exercise further, here is another example. I made up the first example, but the following one comes from my life. I am carrying a grief in my heart that is so deep I often wonder if it will ever heal. Recently while lying on the Amethyst Crystal Biomat, this guided imagery arose:

The grief in my heart is like sharp heavy stones covered with thick mud… and now a bright orange radiant light is entering my heart… it is like warm, smooth, orange stones… and fragrant orange flowers… and sparkling orange jewels… and glittering orange stars… and it is shining and glowing so bright like a warm healing fire… and day by day it is taking over my heart, so that little by little those sharp, heavy, muddy stones are falling out of my heart, down into the earth… down into the hot ball of iron at the center of the earth, where they are exploding and burning up in the hot iron… and, more and more I am healing in the radiant orange light that is spreading in my heart and throughout my whole being… and it is radiating out to all the beings in all the realms…. 

Can you feel it?
