Feeling and Experiencing Subtle Energies exercise

1) Begin by making yourself comfortable in a seated position.

2) It is best to perform this exercise after you have relaxed yourself through the breathing or meditation exercises mentioned earlier.

3) Rub your hands together in front of you for about thirty seconds to activate your hand’s sensitivity.

4) Hold your hands about 18 inches out in front of you with one palm facing upward and the other palm of your hand facing downward.

5) Quickly open and close your palms ten times. Gently squeeze your hands/palms together during the ten times that you open and close your palms.

6) Now reverse your hands so that the palm that was facing upward before is now facing downward and the palm that was facing downward is now facing upward,

7) Squeeze your palms together quickly again for ten times.

Now open your palms with your arms extended so they are not next to your body. 

9) With your palms facing each other and your hands about two feet apart slowly move your hands towards each other.

10) Bring your hands as close to each other as you can without touching them.

11) Now move your hands slowly back apart. Repeat this slowly in and out movement all the time focusing on what you are feeling with your hands.

12) At what distance do you start feeling the energy between your hands? Do you start feeling the energy when your hands are twelve inches apart or more like six inches apart?

13) What other sensations does the energy feel like? Is it hot? Does it feel as if pressure is building between your hands? Do you sense a feeling of rubberiness, a pulsating feeling, a warmth or coolness?

14) Take a few minutes to define what you are feeling. Remember that you are trying to feel subtle energy so if you feel nothing when you first start doing this exercise don’t worry. With practice you will eventually be able to perceive subtle energies.

15) If you feel energy different than other people do not worry. We all have our own unique energy field and so the way you experience energy may be quite different than the person next to you.

16) With this exercise you should realize that your energy field and perception does not stop at skin level. Do the exercise again and this time write down the impressions and experiences you got from doing the exercise. For example, how far apart were your hands when you first felt the energy? What did the energy feel like? Was it cool, warm, heavy, etc. Recording your impressions and experiences with this exercise will help you recognize your progress in the coming months. Remember that it takes time and practice to perceive and feel subtle energy.

A mandala is a Sanskrit term for a geometric pattern that represents the cosmos, a microcosm of the universe. In Jungian psychology a mandala is “a symbol used to reunify the self“. The origin of a sacred geometry mandala is the center, the “seed”. It’s the gathering center in which outside energies are drawn, and in the act of drawing the forces, the artist’s own energies unfold. Thus it represents outer and inner spaces. Its purpose is to remove the object- subject dichotomy. The circles drawn around the outside stand for the dynamic consciousness of the initiated. The center is visualized as the essence and the circumference as grasping, thus mandala means grasping the essence.

The Seven Bodies

1. Physical Body:

The physical body is the anchoring point for your Higher Self to explore the mystery of your being within physicality. It is highly susceptible to programming transmitted through touch for several minutes after birth. It holds the memories of this and other lives.

The Seven Bodies

2. Etheric or Astral Body:

The majority of karma, which is a constriction in the universal flow of energy formed by incorrect perception, is held in the astral body (only a small portion is in the physical body). It consists of bluish lines of light. It produces the acupuncture points and the major and minor chakras by the energy lines crossing each other. Where they cross seven times, there is an acupuncture point. Where they cross 13 times, there is a minor chakra point. Where they cross 20 times, there is a major chakra point. This body is linear and is located an inch out from the physical body.

3. Emotional Body:

It is the auric field. Past trauma is held in the first three bodies (the physical, astral and emotional bodies). Therefore, as we overcome our past and balance our sub-personalities, this body becomes clearer. It is a flowing field extending out about 14 inches from the physical body.

4. Mental Body:

As we balance the three minds, including the left and right brains, the mental body ceases to block access to the higher bodies. This body is linear and is located about 14 inches out from the physical body.

5. Spiritual Emotional Body:

When able to access this body, we begin living in eternal time, which aligns us with the intent of the Infinite. This body is a flowing field that extends about 19 inches out from the physical body

6. Spiritual Mental Body:

The information within this body contains the specifics regarding the blueprint for this lifetime. When access to this body is achieved, we start seeing from a cosmic perspective. We begin to see the innocence and value of each life as it mirrors to the Infinite either that which it is, or that which it is not. We see that there is no guilt so all judgment effortlessly dissolves. This body is linear and is located about 19 inches out from the physical body.

7. Spirit Body:

It is trillions of little fibers of light radiating out in all directions from the life force center. This is a ball of white light about the size of a grapefruit. In May 2007 it was moved from behind the belly button to the heart center in all humanity. Every living creature within the cosmos has a band of awareness among these light fibers within our spirit body. That is why we are the microcosm. This is the body shamans use to be able to shapeshift into animals or other forms; plus they use this body to access parallel realities. They move a point of illumination called the assemblage point. It is located an arm’s length behind the heart, and a little bit to the right. This body is a linear field radiating out from the center to an arm’s length from the physical body.

life is way too short to be bored and sad!! get up off ur bum and try something new! don’t get too comfortable, stay at the edge or outside of your comfort zone. talk to a stranger, cook dinner for your mom, pay for the guy behind you in the starbucks line, pick up a ukelele and watch a youtube video on how to play. there are endless things to do, things to learn, people to meet, things to smile at. go out and do something!

Reiki healing share <3

For all of you who practice Reiki, regardless of which level, I’d like you to get involved with me on my mission to “fill the Reiki pot”. Inspired by my good friend and fellow complementary therapist Jools Bell, the idea is to send the Reiki life force energy to an imagined “pot” which can be accessible at all times and to anyone! This is a great way for us all to practice our skills in sending Reiki (no symbols are necessarily needed) and to give something for those who need it when they are going through rough patches. 
Before you start sending the energy, use the powers of visualisation to create a beautiful golden pot, connected to all beings and open for all to enter when they choose. Then imagine that, instead of sending the Reiki through your hands and into your self or another person, the energy is going straight into the pot! 
If you don’t practice Reiki yourself but feel that you are in need of some rejuvenation or support then all you need to do is close your eyes and focus on taking a little bit of that Reiki energy from the pot, giving love and gratitude in return. You can do this on the bus to work, in the bath or even on the loo!
I’m going to be doing this every Monday evening at around 6pm for a total of 30-60 minutes. If we all can come together and connect at that time and fill up our Reiki pot together it could be a really magical way of coming together, developing our skills and offering some healing light to those who need it. 
Please reblog and share the light  Namaste

The Week Ahead, September 24 - 30, 2012 ~ 

THE PLUTO-URANUS THEMES of transformation, revelation, restlessness and rebellion are likely to be highlighted in many ways this week. Since the New Moon on September 15, certain issues have been growing in our awareness. Now, with a powerful Full Moon on the calendar for next Saturday, we may be ready to make those life-changing decisions — or, at the very least, open to a greater awareness of what needs to change — that will accelerate our forward motion.

The effects of this Full Moon will be strongest next weekend, but we will be working with its themes throughout the week as the lunar cycle builds, and as other planets interact with the force field that has been set up by the Pluto-Uranus square.

A MARS-VENUS SQUARE is exact on Thursday, but both planets interact with Pluto and Uranus starting on Monday. This means the dance between masculine and feminine archetypes and traits is centerstage throughout the week. This is our opportunity to see our conflicting internal needs more clearly, and also to observe how those conflicts are reflected externally in our relationships with others.

With Mars in Scorpio pushing against Uranus on Monday and Pluto on Tuesday, we may be feeling especially restless and resistant to being told what to do. We can feel the pressure of others’ unspoken needs, especially if we sense any attempts at manipulation. We remember “all those times” we gave away our power, and are bound and determined not to do THAT again.

With Mars so busy energetically, we may find it very difficult to hold in our reactions this week. This will be especially true if we feel someone is trying to control us. At the same time, we must also watch our own tendencies to manipulate others to get them to do what we want, instead of having the courage to state our needs directly.

BEGINNING ON TUESDAY, Venus in Leo is also engaged with Pluto and Uranus. Venus is representing a very different part of us — the part that longs to feel special and loved, to be appreciated, and to belong. This is the part that enjoys the first stages of relationship, when all of life’s colors seem particularly vibrant, and there are no questions about the other’s adoration.

This week, that part may feel very impatient with relationships that do not meet the ongoing needs for feeling seen, honored and accepted. Instead of seeing the colors of life enhanced, we may be complaining about all the ways we no longer feel fulfilled by how things are going. 

BY THE TIME we get to the actual Mars-Venus square on Thursday, we may have much of the buildup in tension behind us. As a result, we may be able to see more clearly what changes may be needed to make our relationships — and our lives in general — more satisfying.

What we are really trying to do is find what is at the heart of dissatisfaction we may be experiencing. Mars in Scorpio represents the part of us that wants intimacy, honesty, and depth. Venus in Leo represents the part of us that wants the joy of self-expression, playfulness, and creativity.

Both of these needs are legitimate, and as we work with this square, each of us will need to come to terms with where there is imbalance in our life experience. And, Uranus and Pluto will help us let go of the old ways and create the new, as needed.

THE HIGHLIGHT of the week, energetically speaking, is the Full Moon, exact on Saturday evening in the Pacific Time zone. This is a powerful lunation because the Moon is within a degree of being conjunct Uranus and square Pluto. In other words, the Full Moon carries with it the full energies of the Pluto-Uranus square that was exact last week.

For those who have been needing that extra boost of motivation or courage before taking action, this Full Moon supplies plenty! And, if we’ve been waiting for life to show us the next road to take, this Full Moon may also give us some clear indicators — both of what needs to be left behind or released, and of what forward steps will be most enlivening and fulfilling. - Pam Younghans/NorthPoint Astrology Journal
