Orange you Happy?

Dear readers, my desk is clean and ready for me to begin writing the next book tomorrow morning!

I love the paint store sample card on my desk that reads “Orange you Happy?” It seemed perfect to place on my desk now, because the next book is called Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life. Please read more about the book in my previous article, “Double Coffee Days Ahead.”

I am so very grateful to those who have donated to my work. It means so much to me and is helping me greatly on all levels! If anyone else would like to send some green energy (monetary) support my way, I will deeply appreciate it… In addition to writing the next book, I am posting helpful blog articles regularly, volunteering with Hospice, planning to offer healing circles again soon, and visioning a business in which I offer spiritual and emotional support to the dying and their families in sessions via video calls.

Happy New Moon tonight…
May all your wishes come true!!!

Please take a moment to visit my green energy page here: Donate
Thank you so much!!!!!

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!

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.”

My new book, Reaching for Orange, will begin with a letter from me to you. I am sharing that letter below to spark your interest and to ask for support. If the following letter resonates with you, please consider donating to my work, by simply clicking here: Donate. I will be so very grateful for the support.

 

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.

It is your special holy place… a place for you to learn, to reflect, and to go deep inside your own being. Letting go of the outside world for a while…

Bringing crayons, markers, colored pencils, jewel stickers… whatever you like to decorate with… Blank pages are included throughout this very special book… for your unique explorations… You are invited to write, draw, and have fun in this book. You could even glue photos or magazine images onto the blank pages…

This book is 100% for you… for your healing, for your replenishment, for your happiness.

After an explanation of Orange, this entire book is filled with practices, visualizations, and blessings to help you Happy Up your life.

May All Beings Be Free of Suffering.
May All Beings Be Happy.

With Much Love,
Teja

Your Future Self: A Visualization Practice

Where would you like to be six months from now? On September 10th, 2019 who would you like to be?

Visualizing your future self is a powerful practice that can help you to achieve your goals. First, write down your visualization, and then read it out loud daily until you memorize it. Once you memorize it, then you can just think it in your mind, or continue reading it out loud if you prefer. Either way, include multi-sensory aspects, such as how you feel in your future self’s body, as well as what you are seeing, hearing, smelling, and tasting in the body of your future self. Continue this practice daily for 3-4 weeks, or until it begins to feel complete.

Here is an example of my future self visualization for six months from now. I wrote mine in third person, but you could write yours in first person if that feels more comfortable to you.

On September 10th, 2019, Sister Teja is a StarFire Superstar Dynamo! Sri Rama healed her nervous system and re-calibrated her body so that now she is able to handle doing a lot of work with ease and grace. She is stronger on every level, and now she efficiently runs all that energy that surges through her. She is harnessing the positive aspects of being an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), through her work: offering spiritual care to the dying and their families; posting helpful blog articles; leading StarFire Healing Circles in which she shares do-able spiritual practices with others; AND happily promoting her new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, and Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life. Through it all, she is enjoying the Happiness & Radiance of the Spiritual Life. Her body feels vibrant and healthy. She sees the Divine in everyone and everything. She enjoys the color orange, the scent of vetiver, and the taste of hot black coffee.

Sharing your future self visualization can give it a boost of energy. When others witness your vision, that gives it even more power. So I encourage you, if you feel comfortable, to share your future self vision in the comments below, down where it says “Leave a Reply.”

May All Beings Be Happy!

Refreshing AND Deepening

This is a follow-up to the blog I posted on Friday, “StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Prayer: May You Feel Refreshed” in which I wrote about how your intentions and guided imagery regularly need to be refreshed.

Perhaps you’ve already read a blog I posted in January called “Radiance & Darkness” in which I talked about how opposing forces can be simultaneously true. Well, I remembered that after posting the blog on Friday, thus I’m writing this follow-up.

While some prayers and visualizations get stale and need to be refreshed, the opposite is also true! Some prayers and spiritual practices can be done over and over and over, and you go deeper and deeper with them each time. Your deeper mind loves newness, and it also thrives on repetition. Both are true. As you try out the various practices suggested in these blogs, you will know when to let some go, and when to dive deeper into others. When you listen to your inner wisdom you will know when to refresh and when to deepen.

At the beginning of my new book I offer a section called Radiance Rising, which is an extended list of spiritual practices you can do while reading the book and beyond. One of the practices is a forty-verse chant called the Hanuman Chalisa (CD with versions of that chant by Krishna Das: Flow of Grace), and I have been singing that prayer daily for almost ten years. Talk about repetition!

After the section with spiritual practices, I tell the magical story of Rama and Sita, in my fantastical version of the Ramayana. Many people, including myself, study the Ramayana as a spiritual practice. Currently I am studying my own version on Sundays, and it really uplifts me for the following week.

I have been studying this ancient story from India for almost fifteen years, and while reading nearly one dozen versions, I have gone deeper into the meanings and I have also realized many applications to my daily life. When you read this book, you will recognize your own wisdom through the heroes of the tale.
