Grounding and Centering

 

 2dtmxic
I’m sure i don’t have to tell you we are living through some crazy times
here on this planet. Tragic events in the news are now common place and we are
all feeling its energetic effects. Irritability, tension, the inability to cope
with small disturbances are coming from all the emotional energy swirling about
us now. Luckily there is a few things you can do to help yourself…. all beginning with
grounding and centering.
Some people seem to have a stability or peace to them that keeps them from
getting out of control, or carried away. They seem more “grounded” and
“centered” within themselves. When you don’t share in their calm state of being
you are the one giving them annoyed glances on the check out line at the
supermarket or just stopping short of throwing your gum in their hair. By
learning a few simple mini meditations you too, can feel peace during chaotic
times. I always start by taking a few deep breaths. Pulling air in slowly and
deeply through your nose and exhaling it completely through your mouth.
Oxygenating is the first step in creating balance within yourself.



  Next comes grounding and this can be done in several ways but this is my
favorite and by far the easiest method. It involves a few minutes of simple
visualization that will bring you a sense of calmness and connection to the
earth itself (which when you’re feeling scattered is exactly what you need).


Start off by sitting or standing in a comfortable position (personally i
prefer sitting although i have done this laying down with my knees raised
and feet planted flat on the bed). The choice is yours and your body will tell
you how it is most at ease so don’t worry the position isn’t correct. As long as
your feet are flat to the ground its just fine!


Breathing deeply, close your eyes and visualize roots growing down from the

soles of your feet deep into the earth. If you are indoors, visualize them going

through the layers of floor and cement till they reach right down into the soil
underneath. See these roots going deeper and deeper, spreading out and
stabilizing you to the earth. They reach the center of the earth which is
swirling with white Mother Earth energy. Soothing and peaceful….your roots act
like straws bringing this warm, comforting energy up and up the roots…Back up
through the ground and into the soles of your feet. Then feel it coming slowly
up though your ankles, your calves, thighs, slowly up though the trunk of your
body, your chest, arms and neck…then filling your head all the way to the top.
Just when you think you cannot fit in one more ounce of earth energy in yourself , see this
beautiful white, loving energy come out the top of your head and flow down over
the outside of your body back into the earth. Revel in its comforting
warmth.
You are now grounded!!!


Open your eyes…Look around you. How do you feel? Relaxed? Revitalized?
More attentive?



It is as simple as that!



You really will feel a difference and over time that difference will become
more and more noticeable.


Now, if you’d like to center yourself as well as ground (i always do) While
you are seated or in whatever position you chose.. Straighten out your spine and
visualize a beam of white light, like a rod coming straight down from the sky,
passing through the top of your head, through each chakra lined in you then out
the center of your body straight down into the earth. The beam sinks into the earth
connecting you to heaven and earth “centering” you between both. That is what
centering is!


You’re done!! You’ve successfully grounded and centered yourself for the
day !


It doesn’t take but a few minutes of your time and it really will help you
cope with all the crazy energy floating about.


Don’t worry if you find it hard to visualize these images right away, like
anything else, visualization takes practice but i promise you its worth learning.
Its free, its quick and its immensely helpful in day to day life. Grounding and
centering is a fantastic way to keep yourself in check and able to cope with
things that come your way. After a while you’ll notice more clarity of mind and
less stress in the body ..and that’s something everyone can use!



Till next time.. I wish you great happiness, calm and Earth Angel
love!

Change your vibration with “Angel Words”

Hi Everyone and thank you for reading todays new
Angel post!! Today i wanted to talk about raising your vibrations, what that
means and how to do it! Its easier than you think and makes a huge (and happy)
difference in our lives.



Vibrations are energy. Positive moods have higher
vibratory energy while negative moods have less. The vibration of words sends
energy to ourselves and out into the world. This finding actually applies to
thoughts as well as spoken words. You could demonstrate this for yourself. Think
about a negative experience, then observe what happens to your body: tense
muscles? sinking feeling in your stomach? furrowed eyebrows? teeth clenched?
Then picture a pleasant experience; you’ll relax and feel peaceful and content.
Now you get my point.
Everything we say
is like a seed that goes out into the universe and is planted…bringing you
exactly what you’ve asked for. Each and every word spoken has a vibration all
its own. That’s why it is so important for us to govern our own thoughts in a
manner that is always a positive seed to be sending out.




Creating positive change in your life is as simple
as changing your words. In Doreen Virture’s book Angel Words:
Visual Evidence of How Words Can Be Angels in Your Life,
as

Doreen was recording podcasts, she noticed that whenever she said the word
angel, the recording graphics were shaped like angel wings! So Doreen
and her son Grant studied the other words she said and realized that those with
a spiritual or loving basis had large graphs. They experimented with saying
negative words and found that their appearance was completely different: tight
and small.
Angel Words gives visual proof of the power and impact of
speaking in a loving way. You’ll come to understand why positive words express
the most energy and therefore have the most power to manifest your dreams.
You’ll also see how negative words have low energy and read how they can
actually draw negative experiences to you. So lets learn how we can use our words to attract positive things we desire.





Start by paying attention to your thoughts and
words. If you have an internal critic, which most of us do, negative and
judgmental thoughts worry and depress us constantly. You might start your change
from negative to positive words by reminding yourself daily, even posting smile
signs in your environment. The smiles will remind you to start translating
negativity into positive phrases. Whenever possible, turn negative predictions
(worries) gripes and complaints into positive affirmations or at least neutral
statements. Another technique is to cancel/delete a negative thought just like
you would reboot a computer. (Example, “I’m having a terrible day. Cancel. I’m
going to have a good afternoon.”)




Even sentences that you THINK are positive ones
can hold low vibrations… For example “I cant wait till i get that job
promotion” holds low energy. Remove words like “cant wait” and change it to “Im
excited to be getting that job promotion!” You’ve not only changed its frequency
but you’ve put in terms that what you desire is already yours! If you are
looking for a new relationship, don’t say things like “I can never find the
right person for me.” If you talk like this, this is exactly what you will get.
Change it to “Im excited to find that special someone for
me!”


You get what you say and
think.
Even if you haven’t been too
successful in finding the right person previously, it doesn’t matter. Change
your words and you will change your life.




I often find myself sitting across from a client
and watching how negatively they speak about themselves or what they so desire
to come into their lives. I know the frustration of waiting for that which your
heart desires most but we can actually prevent or delay it from coming to us
merely by speaking so negatively about it to ourselves or
others!


Its not always easy to change the way you speak or
think to raise positive energy for yourself and all around you, but
you
can fake it till you make it; just
start! As you work to make this change you can also adopt other positive
practices into your life; the more the better. Remember that the heart is
energetically thousands of times more powerful than the brain. As Charles
Dickens said, “A loving heart is the truest wisdom.



There are so many ways to raise your vibration
frequencies and live a more positive life..

Clean out your space of negative energy (like i
wrote about in the last Angel Blog) , stay away from negative people and energy
vampires (the ones who make you feel drained when you walk away from them). Even
the foods that you eat are made up of energy. By eating a large amount of meat,
you are actually taking in the negative feelings that the animals were feeling
before they were slaughtered. I am not saying to become a vegan or vegetarian
because that way of eating is not for everyone, but keep the feelings of the
animal in mind when you are choosing your meat products and try look for
certified humane brands.



Finally, take the time to pray or meditate. By being
able to quiet your mind, you will be better able to sort through your negative
thoughts and feelings that may be holding you down at a lower vibration. Plus,
having this time will help you to connect with your energy source, and this will
help you in your quest to essentially, live a happier life.

vibration words and how they effect your life click this link to bring you to a
slide show of pages from her book to see exactly what these vibrations look like
when spoken




…and as always i wish you peace, love and
Angels!!

Now on Facebook too!

This weeks crystal tip …….(thanks to my friend Jenna check out her pages on Facebook- Owland Moon Crafters and Healing Crystal Connection)

Spring cleaning with the Angels!!


Every Spring for eons people and animal alike start their spring cleaning. Sweeping out the dull, stagnant energy of winter along with the piles of unnecessary junk we accumulated over the past year. Its a wonderful time when we feel renewed by purging ourselves of that which no longer serves a purpose in our lives. A great starting place is your home!
For me, by the time Spring approaches im so over Winter it isn’t funny…desperation for fresh air, warm sun and flipflops is over whelming so i always start by gather up winter clothes and packing them away to make room for more spring-like wear. Ahh i can breathe better already! Next i clear up all the junk stuffed into every nook and cranny of my home. Throwing out old magazines (or recycling them is better), clearing the dust off the shelves, organizing closets, getting rid of anything broken and donating anything that isn’t used but takes up space. Now, you may think once your house is cleaned out everything is finished , right?
Wrong.

While ridding yourself of unwanted clutter is GREAT for your home and your toes (im always stubbing my toe on this or that) Energy needs to be cleared out too! My favorite way to change the energy in my house is by opening all the windows and doing a good old fashioned smudging.

What is smudging you say? (shock horror!)

Essentially, smudging is purification by smoke, common to most of the
indigenous peoples of the Americas. It has been widely adopted by many
non-natives. It is done to correct the energy in a home, in an office, in an
object, or even in a person. This is accomplished by burning sage or sage and a
combination of herbs, in a focused, intentional way to cleanse out negative
energy and to replenish positive, healing energy.

Herbs used in smudging are typically sages, cedar or sweet grass. Sage
(particularly white sage which is the most potent and my personal favorite to use) and cedar are
typically tied up in hand-sized bundles called smudge sticks to dry. Sweet grass,
a tall plains grass with a sweet vanilla scent, is braided into ‘whips’. The
smoke they produce when burning is known for its “cleansing” properties and are
the most popular way to smudge your home. Its so easy to do and the effects are
amazing!

How to smudge your space and yourself:

Start by opening all the windows in your home (so as to give negative energy a way to get out) and light your smudge stick , letting it burn for a minute or so the blow out the flame. It should be smouldering and billows of white smoke are rising. Start at your front door and walk clockwise around the house– going into each room and walking clockwise around them–  fan the smoke into every nook and cranny using a feather or your hand (or whatever you have , ive even used a paper plate) Don’t forget the corners and closets! I walk around the perimeter of each room then right down the center so i know all areas were covered. You can say a little prayer or anything you like while you smudge. In every room i usually will ask the angels and all the powers that be to rid this space of all negative and unwanted energies and charge this space with positivity and light. When each room is thoroughly smoked i close the window and go on to the next room. I go around my home (and every floor) till i end up back at the front door. I step out onto the front step and then smudge myself by rotating the smudge stick around my body. Now you and your space are cleared!! I use a heat safe bowl to stomp out and store my smudge sticks in. Smudging can be done as often as you like and has the most wonderful effect! Call on your angels to keep bringing in good energy to your newly cleared space! <3 You can even smudge your crystals to clear them!

Speaking of crystals!… Crystals are a great way to bring in positive energy to your home and work space. Clear crystal quartz placed in every room helps to keep your space flowing with good energy and helps to cleanse not only the room but your thoughts as well. I have one in every room of my house along with a green plant (philodendrons are PERFECT) to constantly filter out negative  and stagnant energy. They sort of do maintenance in between smudging and i am always recommending them to clients.

Cleaning and clearing inside and out keep us moving like well oiled machines….opening up to all the magnificent things that are coming to us in the seasons to come. Cleaning out your space, your mind and body (good nutrition is made easy and delicious with new spring fruits and veg) will keep you at your absolute best and that is something EVERYONE can use!

Love , light and everything wonderful Spring is bringing,

Welcome to DawnOfAngels Blog!

Welcome to the wonderful world of angels!
 My aim in creating this blog was to teach people about the angel realm and our daily interaction we can have with them. These silent life supporters are with us from before conception and are there for us throughout our lives…All we have to do is call on them!
Recently i was at a psychic fair and it occurred to me that so few people realize they have these magnificent beings around them at all times and they are just waiting to be called to action. The law of free will in our lives prevents them from interfering in our daily choices ..BUT.. if we ask for their help they immediately come to our aid. Person after person that sat before me with wondrous eyes as i explained to them how there were angels assigned to them as they contracted to take on this life they are living and stay with us even after we leave from this world. They just need a green light to go ahead and help us! Watching them make notes , happily jotting down what they were learning about the angel realm reminded me of myself long ago when i realized no matter what i was going through in my life, i was never truly alone.
I am a stage 4 ovarian cancer survivor.
I was always intuitive as a child but it was during my battle that angels would present themselves to me and become part of my awareness.
Now, i was technically always a religious person and i relied on my faith in good times and in bad but it seemed in 2009 bad had become worse and without going into frightening and often sad details, (i’m sure as my blogs continue all will be spoken of eventually) i was at the end of my rope. I finally said out loud one day ” Thats it God, i don’t know what else to do, my life is in your hands, please help me”. I lay back in bed and closed my eyes, hot tears streaming down my face, and something told me to open my eyes. I childishly ignored the feeling and even squeezed them tighter in rebellion but i couldn’t ignore the fact i was feeling calm. Calm and warm to be exact. I opened my eyes and across the room , high towards the ceiling there was a bright, white figure. It didn’t look like any of the classic 17th century paintings of an angel but i knew in my heart it was. My first thought was what every other person in my shoes wouldve thought… “OH MY GOD I’M HALLUCINATING! CHEMO HAS FINALLY MADE ME WONKY!” I shut my eyes tight and reopened them to see that the image was still there and i didn’t feel like crying anymore. I picked up the cell phone off my chest , aimed and snapped a picture of it. Within seconds it was gone.  I looked at the picture over and over…looked around my room for any reason that exact image would appear on my wall and found nothing that could explain it. I knew my heart i had been visited by an angel.
 
Now i must say as a child i thought if you were visited by angels it would mean something serious, like they were coming to take you to the other side, but i wasn’t left with that feeling. What i was left with was that everything was going to be alright , i was loved, im not alone and they were here to help. For a day or forever , i didn’t know but in that moment i was comforted. That afternoon i started to also notice little signs like i opened my email to see an advertisement for Doreen Virtues book “Healing with the Angels” and later a TV documentary came on about the angel realm. I remember telling my mother about my sighting when she came later that day to take me out and remarked she didn’t know what it could mean. We entered a store and when i looked up on the very first set of shelves there were little china angels as far as the eye could see. I knew someone was trying to tell me something.
The next morning as i lay in bed by myself , my angelic friend reappeared. I was abe to take another picture and another the following day. `Finally i took the hint (despite my incredibly thick head) and bought the Doreen Virtue book. I read about how angels try to give messages and realized they had been trying to communicate with me MUCH longer than i ever couldve guessed.
Over the next days to weeks i started hearing them. Their advice came as repetitive thoughts at first and some not so subtle hints. Eventually i was able to distinguish when they were trying to contact me and what they had to tell me. I followed their advice to the letter and they lead me to people and situations that resulted in me getting everything i needed to overcome cancer. I am proud to say i am a survivor and the angelic realm lead the way for me.
I’ve been blessed to have been chosen now to spread the word of the angels and my ability to hear them and the messages they have for people have increased 100 fold!  Lucky me!!!
What an amazing journey i have been on and i’m so privileged to be able share with you all i’ve learned. Every week ill be sending out a news letter with information about angels & archangels and how to call upon them , holistic health, healing crystals, self help, how-to’s and so much more. All with a dash of humor and a few smiles thrown in.
Thank you so much for walking with me on this path now and i hope each and every one of you walk along feeling empowered and comforted knowing the angels are here with us every step of the way!

With much love and gratitude,
Dawn
