Healing with Positive Energy ~ Part II

Each session I am even more amazed at the progress of healing.  My client is an inspiration and has reinforced that I made the right decision to become a Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner.

Our second session was remarkable!  Just before she arrived, my colleague and I commented how good it would be to see her walk through the door without her cane.  To our amazement…she did just that!  She also got clearance to return to work which was her goal in addition to pain relief.

The sessions that have followed have been so rewarding.  Our second session was intense and there was a lot of energy movement.  At the close of the session I was very concerned because she had the physical look and feeling of being heavily medicated.  I advised her to take it slow and go home and rest while keeping focused on the white energy flowing through her.  Feedback after the second session: “…Last night ended up being difficult, pain-wise…I have been imagining white energy coming through me as you suggested, and when I did it this morning, I got out of bed in a great place mentally…I never get out of bed in a good mood; I’m a night owl and have insomnia so I’m always cursing at the alarm, but not today.”

Our fourth session was Reiki only but I added a meditation from Bob Proctor called Abundance Meditation to encourage healing energy.  I was amazed when she fell sound asleep halfway through our session and the energy that usually surged on her right side was slowly calming.  I can’t describe how beautiful it was to see this ray of sunshine rest peacefully!    This is the feedback I received about an hour after she left my office:  “Having tea and soup and feeling wonderful and *SOOO* relaxed!  I’m sorry I think I fell asleep!! I rarely can sleep without medication to dull the pain enough.  Thank you!!!!!!!”

I have always believed in the power of positive energy.  To be able to witness positive energy’s healing power is undescribable.  There are just no words to describe how good I feel seeing someone benefit so much from my touch.

The Universe is so powerful!

Have a beautiful day and Be Well!

Creating Your Dream Life

Over the past couple of years I have been practicing The Secret and using the law of attraction, combined with hard work and persistence, to achieve my dreams.  I truly believe that we have the ability to create the life we want.

I was recently introduced to the concept of Unlimited Abundance and the method of clearing Abundance Blocks that hold us back from allowing ourselves to live the life we want and deserve.  Phrases like “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, “You have to have money to make money”, and “Money is the root of al evil” are things we grow up hearing from friends and family, media, and other sources.  We buy into these ideas and make them our own which creates blocks in achieving our dreams.

I often participate in free webinars that I know are really meant to lure us into buying a product or service.  However, each time I learn something that is valuable to me which makes investing 60-90 minutes worth it.  I rarely buy the product or service but the Unlimited Abundance program sounded like it was worth investing in.  So far it has been a great investment in ME!  I am working through the 24 Abundance Blocks slowly – still on the first block “Clearing Resistance”.  I am seeing a change in my thought process and seeing my life change each day as a result.  Some of the ingrained concepts that I have are beginning fall away and I actually feel lighter and have renewed my belief that I can do whatever I set my mind to doing.

I also added a Bob Proctor meditation to my daily practice for several days now and am beginning to change my thoughts about success, money, and relationships.  The meditation is Abundance Meditation and is about 22 minutes long but worth giving a chance.  Bob Proctor says “If you can hold it in your head you can hold it in your hand”.  I am beginning to see this as a truth and look forward to what I can do with this concept.

Some of the things I am working on are:

~Debt free by the end of 2015

~A successful and sustaining business

~Become a Life Coach

~Be truly happy

What would you like to achieve in the months ahead?  How do you plan to make your DREAMS your REALITY?  Write it down in the comments below and let’s help each other to make it happen!

Sunday Gone Wrong is Really a Gift in Disguise

Sunday has become my new favorite day of the week.  It’s the one day I have dedicated to ME and it’s beginning to feel comfortable.  For the past four years I have worked weekends at the bar: Saturday night shift until 4am and a variety of Sunday shifts from going in at 6pm or 8pm or working a double beginning at 3pm.  This schedule was leaving little or no time for me to enjoy my amazing friends and family so I decided to make a change in 2015 and take back my Sundays!

So far Sundays have been all that I expected.  I have been able to say YES to brunch and lazy girl movie day, and have even enjoyed using that thing called a kitchen for more than just making coffee in the morning or reheating take-out from the day before!

This Sunday began like the past three.  Slept in a little bit and then off to meet one of my girls for brunch and catch up time.  We spent hours chatting and laughing without worrying about what time it was or being anywhere.  We parted ways about 3pm and it was off to the market to get some good things to cook up for the week….and then began the Sunday Gone Wrong!

I decided to go to a different market this week just to change it up and was very disappointed to find the first three items on my list were out of stock 😦  I shrugged it off and decided it was a good day for a drive to visit a market I rarely go to.  Excited rather than disappointed – because it was Lazy Girl Sunday – I left the store and headed to the car: Here’s where it really begins.  My car won’t start.  The radio, Bluetooth, lights, and gauges all work but nothing when you turn the key.  Ok, so it’s not the end of the world, make a couple calls and Little Brother is on his way to rescue me!  Nothing is ever that simple in my world and long story short the car is now on a flatbed – 2 hours later – on it’s way to the shop to be looked at tomorrow.  Dad is now my rescue ride and we are all frozen.

My initial reaction is anger that my two year old JEEP is failing me and that I have now inconvenienced my family on their day off.  I just want to cry at this point especially if another guy looks at me and says “Now did you leave the lights on?”  with that ‘oh little blonde, not so bright girl’ face…Ladies you know what I mean.  But I kind of bite my tongue (those who know me know I had a comment for every one of those guys with the face) and took it in stride.

I got home after resorting to shopping at what we in Albany refer to as “The Ghetto Chopper” still sad and wanting to ball my eyes out only to realize the gift of today:  I got to spend time with people who truly matter to me and love me as much as I love them!   Brunch with a dear friend, time spent with my brother and his beautiful children, and precious time with my Dad all to myself.  I am so blessed to have these amazing people to share life’s journey with!

Today’s Lesson:  It’s not about location or circumstance, it’s about seeing the beauty in spending time with loved ones and feeling so loved by those around you that your heart is warm and full.

Have a “life lesson” story to share?  Leave it in the comments section…because we are all human 🙂

Be well & happy!

A Spiritual Birthday Gift

 

 

A Spiritual Birthday Gift

Butterflies have always been magical to me because they are so free and beautiful. In 2012 my Mom told me: “Promise me something, that you will go to Costa Rica next year for me. I will not be here but I will send all the butterflies and tell them to visit my beautiful girl so that you know I am with you.” She kept that promise and on my last day of vacation I was greeted by an amazing, deep yellow butterfly. I knew immediately that it was her and she brought such a variety of friends with her. It is a memory I cherish every day that allowed me to truly grieve for her and let go.

This November visit was extra special and reinforced my Mom’s presence is with me all the time. My birthday is in November and my Mom always made it so special. I miss getting a card from her the week before my birthday and her insisting that we have cake and ice cream to celebrate. Two things that I took for granted when she was here and now I would give anything to have. But today, as I sit eating breakfast in Costa Rica, there are many butterflies fluttering about. I am taken by their grace and beauty as my heart fills with love from my Mom. I look down to see a beautiful orange butterfly struggling to fly and realize that it has a broken wing. I reach down to pick her up so she is out of foot traffic and she eagerly climbs onto my hand. What an amazing feeling to be able to hold one of these magical beings! She spent an hour with me while I ate my breakfast and checked my messages – a birthday gift from my Mom. As I was leaving The Bakery I tried to place her safely in the flowers but she clung to my finger. Finally she moved to the flower and I said goodbye, my heart filled with love and joy from the experience.

What an amazing experience to feel the love of a tiny little being. My day was extra beautiful from that moment on and I am so grateful to now have that memory. I am also grateful to have that feeling of my Mom joining me for a part of my day in a way that I could touch and feel.

When we truly believe in the power of positive, beautiful things happen. Always believe in the greater good of the world and you will experience pure, honest love in places you would never expect.

Thank you Mom for being present in spirit and in a form that I could touch. It means more than anyone could ever know.

Have a Beautiful Day!! ~Pamela

The Value of an Act of Kindness

How many times have we walked away from the person on the street asking for change?  How often do we stop to help our neighbors?

I was recently approached by an older man and woman on the street who were asking for bus fare.  The man had just been discharged from the hospital and without money they had to walk home. My initial reaction was “I’m sorry but I have no cash”.  I saw the hurt in the woman’s eyes and knew that I had change in my bag.  After giving them the whole $3 in change that I had in my bag I looked at the woman’s face and saw such gratitude in her eyes.

Later in the week a neighbor stopped me to ask me to notarize some paperwork for her.  I didn’t realize how sick she had been recently and she told me that she had been in the ER the night before.  What she said next not only shocked me but validated my earlier decision to give the couple change.  She had been treated at the ER for extreme pain and was given morphine to make her comfortable while they ran tests and discharged at 1am on Sunday morning…she had no ride home, no money and was told there was nothing the hospital could do for her.  She walked home that night alone, sick, and scared.  Later in the day she stopped and told me her cat had passed away, the second cat to pass in a week.  She was heartbroken, defeated, and so down that it broke my heart.  She went on to explain that she had been on disability and was waiting for social services to help her out but the process is very slow.  This is a woman who went to work every day, tried to help others when she could, and was always kind to people she met.  We sat and talked for a while until she felt a little better about her situation.

Today I received a message from her:  “I just want to try to express my deep gratitude for the love, support, & generosity you have shown me during such a hard and sorrowful time.  The universe is mysterious and I don’t understand it most of the time but I do believe that you were an angel put in my path at just the time I needed you most.  I hope I can do the same for you someday.”

These experiences have made me take a closer look at myself and my initial reaction to pass judgement.  I realized that it’s not my place to judge another human being, especially when they are less fortunate than others.  We don’t know what others are going through until we take the time to walk in their shoes.

Kindness is the greatest gift we have to give…and it’s FREE!  Share some kindness today and make a difference in the life of another human being.

Have a beautiful day! ~ Pamela

Daily Gratitude

 As I sit in my backyard enjoying the breeze today, I am thinking about all the things in my life that I am grateful for.  

Today I am grateful to have a backyard.  This space that I have created where all things are good and calm.  A space where I can sit quietly and reflect, work stress free, and entertain friends and family. 

I am grateful to have good friends and family.  Yesterday was my Annual Gathering to celebrate the Fourth of July.  It is a small gathering but a celebration just the same. Spending time with those who are important in my life and seeing them enjoy eachothers company is such a rewarding experience.  Being able to spend time with my Dad always makes this gathering special and this year it was extra special to me to have this time.  This year I had a surprise visit from Miss Delores, my dearest friends Mom.  It was such a joy to sit and spend time with this beautiful lady.  

I am grateful for my good health which allows me to enjoy all the good things this life has to offer.  Having the ability to sit here and write, to work in the garden, to be social and active are things that make my world so beautiful and inspire me to share these thoughts with you.  I have faith, that by sharing, it will inspire someone to take a look at all the beauty there is in thier life and be grateful to have it.

Each day we are given the opportunity to make our life a happy one if we choose to do so.  Take that opportunity and make your life the beautiful place you want it to be.  Have faith in yourself and those you surround yourself with.  Most important:  ALWAYS Believe in the Power of Positive!

Have a beautiful day ~Pamela

What do you do when Things Fall Apart?

If your world is anything like mine, you have those times when it seems that everything is falling apart.  You know those days or weeks when 24 hours isn’t enough time in a day to get done all those things on your “to do list”.  The last thing you want to hear is that things will get better….but the reality is they will if you believe in the power of positive.  I am learning that when things fall apart it is usually the beginning of something new and amazing.  Allowing things to fall apart enables us to move on to better things because we can clear the clutter of whatever has been holding us back and move forward.

2014 has reinforced that things need to fall apart sometimes to allow us to grow.  The end of 2013 felt overwhelming and I found myself second guessing many aspects of my life.  But as the new year unfolds I am so grateful for having the courage to keep reaching for my dreams.

My dream of becoming a successful Massage Therapist is truly coming true and so many amazing opportunities have been presented to me in the first couple of weeks of this incredible new year.

I have chosen to make this my year of growth and giving back.  My leap of faith will be completing intensive training in Oncology Massage.  This leap will be the beginning step to being able to provide cancer patients with peace, comfort, and the positive they need to win their battle.

What leap will you take this year to make your dreams come true?  If you have been thinking about it please share in the comments and know that you are not alone in your journey.

Have a beautiful day and a 2014 full of positives!
