Clean and Clear!

hands of light

 

Everyday encounters leave invisible traces on our energy, like smudges on a glass, they are faint but there and can influence our clarity. People and places either add to or take from our energy and an awareness of this helps to ensure one regularly cleanses their energy field and protects it. We have all met people who drain us causing us to feel exhausted after an encounter but it is those who have developed psychic abilities and misuse them for their own ends that we need to really take care with. When you feel unexplained changes on your energy it really pays to thoroughly cleanse yourself and your environment. Seemingly uneventful meetings can have consequences that are totally unforseen. Regularly cleansing and renewing of personal protection keeps you not only clear but sparkling!

Namaste.

Persistent practice

Trees often outlive us by many, many years. Each is individual, as we are and by observing them we can learn so much of benefit. This post offers yet another great insight, this one so beautifully inspiring.

More and more I have come to admire resilience.
Not the simple resistance of a pillow, whose foam
returns over and over to the same shape, but the sinuous
tenacity of a tree: finding the  light newly blocked on one side,
it turns in another. A blind intelligence, true.
But out of such persistence arose turtles, rivers,
mitochondria, figs – all this resinous, unretractable earth.

Living In The Now

A few weeks ago I was up all night with my newborn John. I had an extremely busy day planned, and no matter what i tried, he refused to go to sleep. As the hours ticked away, I could feel myself grow increasingly frustrated. I really wasn’t in the mood for this, I really didn’t have time for this, I really needed sleep so that I could go to work and be productive… Then it hit me. This will pass, and very quickly. Too quickly…

Obviously John wasn’t feeling well, and he was depending on me for comfort and care. While we were apparently getting our signals mixed, he still needed me, and I needed to let go of being frustrated. While I don’t relish sleepless nights with newborns, it seems like just yesterday I was on the alternating night shift routine with my wife, so that we could watch…

One summer evening back in 2006 I happened to see a P.B.S. documentary on people living in the Appalachian region of Virginia. My kids, 8 and 10 at the time, had been with me for the weekend and we’d had a great time as usual. After they left, I cleaned and washed a few dishes. The television was on for background noise really. I hated how quiet it was once the kids left.

I started to pay attention to the documentary when someone began to interview an Appalachian couple as they sat on the front porch steps of their tiny frame house. The couple had two kids but little else of any value besides their home. The father worked as a coal miner and handyman while the mother took care of the kids and worked a part-time job at a corner grocery store.

During the interview the couple held hands…
