Talk after Reiki II graduation ceremony

Here’s the audio of my talk:

0:00
Hi, I would love to speak with you now about an exercise that we did today at our Reiki graduation ceremony. And I think this exercise within a group in particular, a small group would be really good to do especially to set initial intentions and to ground each participant and to help them connect with each other. You may want to do it at the end of a first session or the beginning of a second or third session especially if you have sensed there to be some disturbance in the group dynamics or the energy of the group. And essentially what it amounts to is each person arranges their body (to point their solar plexus towards the person they are speaking to), and in particular, their eyes to look at each person in the group one at a time and then simply state the other person’s name.

For example, I’ll say XYZ is the name of the other person, so you would say “XYZ, I experience you (or the universe experiences you) as ABCDEFG type of person meaning you can use a couple of words or a couple of sentences, but it shouldn’t be any more than a couple of minutes for you to describe each person. You might say things like, “Carol, I experience you (or the universe experiences you) as a loving, tender hearted, caring, nurturing person. You put yourself out there for everybody around you. You give so much from your heart, and you may even over get to the point of diminishing your own self. But you are wise enough to know you can always refill your empty cup. I love you. Thank you. And that’s that’s really it.

You know, you’re giving people the opportunity to understand you’ve heard them. You’ve seen them. You’ve experienced them. And I love this practice. I love the practice of this exercise because it helps each of us connect better with each other, heal any perceived grievances we may have had or held against each other. It really opens our hearts and lets each other appreciate and tune into each other’s energy and realize that we’re not alone. That others see us even if they’ve only known as for a short time.

Like I said, you may use this activity at the end of the session when you’ve only had a couple of hours together participating in a group. I would think that it might be fun in the beginning just to keep it very short and tell each other a perception that they have upon meeting because we all know that.

Initially, when we meet people within the first seven to 30 seconds, we form an opinion of them. And then later when we do this exercise again, after the first session or second session we’ve had a few hours together (if somebody’s taking notes of this or you’re writing these these perceptions down), you can look back and see how much your perception has changed of that person or how in tune you were to pick up on who that person really is. Maybe you’re seeing that person’s heart or their higher self and you’re getting in touch and you’re getting in tune and then therefore this is validating your intuitive awareness.

So, try that exercise and let me know what you think of it and how it works for you. We just did it at our Reiki II level graduation ceremony (and I can tell you that even during the Reiki II weekend class participation, we had some energy disturbances between a couple of the participants) and I was so utterly amazed and impressed when each of those people got to express to each other in our group setting, how they experienced the other person because it was totally positive! There was no negativity. When another participant got their opportunity to share actually said, “I’m not gonna pull any punches and I’m gonna be brutally honest…” and I thought, “Oh gosh, here it comes.” And I didn’t think that particular person had an issue with anyone else. So, when that person got a chance to speak to the other, she let it all hang out and of course it was all worded quite eloquently and was very caring. However, when I heard the words ‘brutally honest’ I thought here comes the negativity. How could this be negative because I thought these two folks got along famously. Well, they did but it was just again, bringing back to my consciousness, how the words that we choose, can even kind of set us up for a different expectation. I thought the next words out of her mouth was gonna be something negative after she said, “I want to cut to the chase and be brutally honest,” right? Maybe just the use of the word brutal especially in this loving, nurturing type of environment and the circle we’ve built over several weeks together. I wasn’t expecting THAT word. I think it was kind of jolting to me. Right?

But this is why I love doing WordPlay. This is why I love facilitating especially small groups, four to eight people, because I think you can really build lasting friendships and really bond with one another. You can really find out a lot about yourself too, because I found myself when I was not forced but when I was prodded if you will (by means of this exercise), to give my opinion of my experience of another human being. I found I immediately tuned in to my pure essence my higher being, God, Omniscience, Source. You know, I immediately tuned in. I immediately got the dowsing rods kind of feedback in my body of the Yes answers every time I spoke something to someone (as I was telling the truth of course) through the whole process. Every time I spoke to the person I felt GodBumps! I felt the GodBumps sensation in my thighs, which is my Yes answer. And now after Reiki level II, I know when I feel God bumps above the waist (in my torso and arms) that is my No answer, as it’s a very strong sensation (meaning the answer No is quite firm). A No answer like this is both inside me and coming to me from The Field, with the stronger the sensation.

This is akin to one looking at the different hues and shades of a certain color. When a color is really bright, that’s the equivalent of when I get a really strong sensation. Similarly, when the color is a pastel color that’s equal to when I feel the slight subtle GodBumps sensation. So the stronger sensation is my Yes answer (or agreement from the Universe on whatever is being discussed), and the more less sensation of GodBumps above the waist is for when I get firm No answer from the Universe.

I’ve learned that through Reiki II for myself personally. I’ve also learned I’m a human dowsing rod and that was validated during the instruction of how to properly use the dowsing rods (as I’d never been instructed how to use them properly before). I’d had a cheaper pair before and I knew they worked to show me where the energy was but I never used them for any specific purpose. I didn’t know I could use them to obtain a yes or no answer nor how to hold them properly with my elbows close against my body. So now, I love the dowsing rods.

I mostly focus on tools, techniques, tips we can ALL use that will aid us in our development mentally calming the mind, growing spiritually, and healing physically. I look for things that we don’t involve external tools. If we’re laying in a hospital bed and we’re near coma we can do these things. That’s the kind of medicine I’m looking for and is what holistic health means to me–holistic medicine. Things you can do on your own, within and of yourself. And you’re a creator. You need no other external tools or external medicines, and so on and so forth. Your breath, your energy, the feeling of your own body (acupressure and reflexology for example), the sensing, the tuning in the going within the meditation, the prayer, the mental attitude, the self talk, the self awareness, the awareness of your conscious thoughts, all of that’s holistic medicine to me. And with that, I send you my love and blessings. Many blessings to you in all ways. We are in this journey together at this time. While I’m breathing and I’m this side of the dirt, I’m alive. And even once I transition whenever that shall occur. I want you to know I’m always there for you. Your loving Spiral Sister in Christ Jesus’ name, Amen. Awoman. Namaste. OM

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. Always.
Omniscience IS IN Everything. Go about your day with God knowing Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone. You are never alone.

Spirit flow after Reiki II class

Listen to the raw talk here:

I don’t think I’ve ever described it this way quite this way before. But after leaving on my second (of a two day) class for Level II Reiki, I feel that I’m only speaking (in all of my writings and talks) to people who ultimately feel a responsibility within themselves to grow their consciousness, to grow their being and connect with (and you can call this any name you would like but it’s a another version of you in essence). It may be your inner child, it may be your Higher Self it may be God, Creator, Divine, Source Energy, the Unified Field, The Field, fractal universe, multiverse, The Force, or The Energy. Omniscience is the word I prefer because it definitely explains how God is Everywhere. All at once. And sees ALL. Omniscience hears ALL frequencies on and in The Field. And creates all and is really the underpinning for everything that exists in the universe, and, in particular, each of us.

So, I’m very grateful for you and glad you’re getting something from this blog. I do believe that it’s for all “believers.” Because if you’re a person who only believes that you are only the body you reside in currently, that you’ve never lived before, as in your consciousness has never existed anywhere else in the universe before, and you don’t believe your consciousness is going to exist anywhere after you leave this body (in other words, you don’t believe YOU go anywhere after this body dies), you are not the person I’m writing this blog for. You’re not the person I’m speaking to right now (for those listening to the audio).

The person that I’m speaking to right now has some belief that they have a soul and a spirit and that they are not this body, this body is a temporary sheath, a meat-suit a spacesuit, a temporary asset that you own. And this is why when Jesus walked the planet 2000 years ago, he said, let thine eye be single. You’re in the world, not of the world. And you have a responsibility to take care of and guard your body Temple. I’m loosely paraphrasing to give you an example that he was teaching the temporary-ness or temporal-ness of this body, and yes, he could bring a dead body to life. Yes, he could. lay hands on someone, put mud on someone’s eye to make the blind see, the lame walk etc. We can do all these things as well. He said we would.

We have the tools available to us. We have the resources available to us. Either surgically, medically, or spiritually psychically (as in psychic surgery cases and things of that nature), as well as Reiki, as well as laying on of hands prayer work and such. Your intention, visualization, speaking words of health, light, love, growth, opportunity, and helping people to see a different version of their future so that they are healthier and living a more vibrant life. Those are all ways that we can affect one another because We Are All Connected.

I see the divine as Omniscience because God is the underlying Omniscient Force that envelops everything in the universe and is the blueprint–the structure.

When I meditate, I see the underpinning framework the Reiki symbols hang on. The world’s languages hang on this framework, the light languages and the words we think and speak. They (the words with their intended meanings) penetrate and hang on this framework. And when we die in the physical body, our consciousness goes into the Grand Beyond because the Grand Beyond is this framework. And we can go through it as well as hang on to it. Those of us who believe Jesus Christ is our personal Savior. We have a relationship with Him. We have a kinship, we have an acknowledgement from Him. We have a vow with Him. We have a promise from him, that He will be there to deliver us from any “evil,” which in my estimation is a “misstep.” We have simply missed the mark. We have made a misstep (or some say “mistake”). Jesus will be there on the Other Side to course correct for us (His believers and followers). But if we don’t believe in Jesus, and this is where I am different than 99% of the people who talk about religion and spirituality, WE are simply hanging onto other branches. In the tree, if you look at a Banyan tree (it’s a prime example of what I see as the best representation of this principle). The Yew tree as well, is a prime example. The trunk of the Yew is made up from multiple branches, limbs, vines and so forth that wrap around and create a stronger trunk. All the branches wind around to form and strengthen the tree trunk. Branches spiral, twist, and wrap around each other. And so the tree itself, the base of the Yew tree is the combination of all of its branches.

Yew tree behind Rosslyn Castle in Scotland

Now why is this important? Because every faith and even if you aren’t a part of an organized Faith structure, you are a branch or vine and you are enveloped in the wrapping of this spiritual tree. So, if you can picture one single tree made of hundreds of branches or even thousands of branches, limbs, and vines–they are ALL connected. This is why the various paths lead to one place. There is an Above and there is a Below. You can reach both through any Faith branch. If you will. And if you are the lone person who believes in XYZ I still believe you can be enveloped by that tree (Omniscience) and be absorbed into that tree, either through one of the main branches or through a vine, or weed! Let’s say if we’re using that tree, Yew tree or Banyan tree as the example, it’s not impossible for a branch to be cast off.

But again, that involves choice. The creators choice and your choice. If you want to be enveloped in a part of that tree, whichever path you’ve chosen will get you there. Some paths may be more, may be shorter, or may be longer. Some paths may be more crooked and have more angles and you may look at those challenges as missteps, but eventually you will be welcomed into the fullness of that tree and it will be explained (to you).

thank OMniscience Allways (in ALL ways for ALL ways)

Answers may come after you’ve crossed over or transitioned into another consciousness. Again, (this is all larger) than Heaven and Hell. I see life as the growth of your consciousness and once you cross over, you’re going to continue growing! You may continue as a spark of divine consciousness. You may come back as a human. You may come back in another life form somewhere else on another realm. You may just hang on to a frequency in the Field. There’s any number of ways that you could continue to grow your consciousness and for those who are interested in reading more about that or studying more about that or hearing more about that I highly recommend the Institute of Noetic science (IONS). I also highly recommend the Monroe Institute. If you know of any other scientific exploration or scientifically backed exploration I would certainly be open to hearing about those communities in the comments section below this article.

Thank you. God bless you. God bless the universe. And the world. My heart is so open. And I see myself as a porous vessel. A vessel that longs for connection that longs for peace and unity, but I also understand that the fire can burn off chaff from the wheat. I understand the fire can purify. And I understand fire helps us destroy the things in our life that are no longer needed as we continue our track to improve and grow our consciousness. And with that said, Nothing is ever wrong. Everything Resolves to Gratitude. We grow through the dirt even when it’s unpleasant and we don’t consciously ask for it. But it’s necessary because we’re on this journey and our soul and spirit knows we need the growth. We have dirt in our lives that may be painful, messy, ugly, or horrible. But we’re on a mission. We’re on a journey and growth is our forward motion progress. With love, Sheila Murrey and… ?

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. Always.
Omniscience IS IN Everything. Go about your day with God knowing Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone. You are never alone.

Expanding Consciousness

Expanding Consciousness

What kinds of things do you do to challenge or stretch your consciousness?

I guess Consciousness, as a topic, interests me because of my mother’s demise from Alzheimer’s dis-ease. Because I am forward thinking. And I am so into the whole mind-body-spirit thing–Holistic Health–as well as, coming to understand the “Interconnection of ALL.”

Expanding Consciousness
Expanding Consciousness

Intriguing ideas

Shirley MacLaine has said she believes the reason why we’re here (in this life) is curiosity. And I feel there are myriad topics we can be curious about, only one of which is Consciousness.

Science has yet to provide us much solid evidence on where our consciousness resides. Much research is ongoing about that. And it intrigues me.

Many fictional TV and film creations, such as Fringe the X-Men movies, brought noetic concepts into mainstream awareness.

Noetic Science

Since the 1970s, the term, “noetics” (“how beliefs, thoughts, and intentions affect the physical world”), has been used by several authors. The books Deep Spirit: Cracking the Noetic Code (2008) by Christian de Quincey and The Lost Symbol (2009) by Dan Brown, reveal a plethora of interesting information on the topics of consciousness and spirituality. Visit the Institute of Noetic Sciences, for more.

When I learned about the noetic sciences and began attending IONS group meetings, that led me to discover the Pachamama Alliance (to be discussed in another post).

Now, such terms as, conscious businesses and socially responsible corporations are becoming well known.

Seat of Consciousness

I’ve heard that Consciousness, more than simply being in our mind or brain, is actually a grand field of interconnected waves that we plug into, as we would turn on a TV to watch a transmitted program. Perhaps the great masters knew of this.

I’ve studied a series of books called, Life and teachings of the masters of the Far East by Baird T. Spalding, which expands upon the belief in the Christ Consciousness and the Buddha Consciousness. Yet, my favorite book that continues to expand my consciousness with every reading is Christ in You, by Anonymous.

About making changes

It has been said that nobody will change anything in their life until the perceived fear of the unknown is less than the pain of remaining the same.

Tony Robbins has talked about how people will violate their own values in order to meet one or more of their perceived needs.

I find moral ambiguities intriguing. I find the shadows we create (as we block the light), interesting.

Conscious change

I read a lot about how in order to actually make changes of habits that actually stick, one must make conscious changes in day-to-day routines.

This means one must consciously choose to drop one task / habit in exchange for another. Willingly. With focus. And we have to be operating in or near the vibration/frequency range (resonance) before we can begin to understand anything new too. 😉

Because I focus on incorporating new ideas, tactics, and tips into my life, I read (or listen to many of the following advanced teachers):

  • Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith
  • Gregg Braden
  • Chris Cade
  • Dr. Joe Dispenza
  • Tim Ferriss
  • MIT biochemist, Raymond Francis
  • Nassim Haramein
  • Dr. Bruce Lipton
  • Dan McDonald, “The Life Regenerator”
  • Lama Nicholas Packard
  • Dr. Linus Pauling – Nobel Prize Winner
  • Joseph Pilates
  • Sadhguru
  • Dr. Albert Schweitzer
  • Alania Starhawk
  • Eckhart Tolle
  • Neale Donald Walsch

It never ends. And we never want it to end. The universe continues to expand.

My take on New Thought

About New Thought

First, the back drop I’d like to set is that one of the things humans love to do is to make much ado about nothing. We love to categorize, label, and define things, which often leads to us complicating very simple things. We also love to feel in CONTROL, by controlling situations, or people, around us.

Humans love to Control
Humans love to Control

I love to find the wisdom within the simple things. I love to look at everything from a child’s point of view. I feel this helps keep my thoughts and energy balanced.

The main points

I’ve written previously that there are many names for God, whilst Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence is above and beyond and LIMITLESS of “naming.” To say that Omni-everything is a Deity (whether personal or impersonal) with any name, still sounds limiting to me.

Oneness works for the Omni-everything, but Divineness (to me) still implies some sort of inherent “goodness.” Omni-everything is ever-living, creating and destroying. If you can find the “goodness” in destruction, then perhaps we’re sharing the same stream of consciousness.

Laws

To strictly state that there is a “Law” of anything is something difficult for a child to understand. My six year old granddaughter knows when she touches something too hot, it can hurt her. Or if she drops something heavy on her toe, that it hurts. But she does not comprehend any kind of law, not even the law of gravity, much less the law of attraction. However, could there be any kind of laws, of course, though that concept seems man-made to me, so if you think Omni-everything dictates certain precepts or laws, you’re anthropomorphizing the LIMITLESS.

One may also suggest that LIMITLESS constructs the Universes according to certain laws. I’d rather suggest that LIMITLESS organizes Universes by design. Within art, there are no mistakes. Take whatever you think Perfection is, and find the imperfection. Find a way to love that.

Through the LIMITLESS Omni-everything, we are. We exist. We BE. Whether or not we’ve lived before, most surely we live NOW. And right now we are creating our reality through our thoughts, time, attention, intention, and way of BEing. For this, we are each responsible. We are choosing in every minute, by direct focus, or not.

Entangled

Whether we realize the impact of our actions, which stem from each and every thought we have, they effect others since, We Are All Connected. We reap from what each has planted. Thoughts beget actions. But always, there are ways for us to choose.

Some people choose not to live in a house divided, or in a county where too much control is exerted over them. They CHOOSE to leave. In this way, they are creating their own reality by choosing to make a better choice for them, in their NOW.

Even people in bondage can choose to control their thoughts and find freedom there. Those who do not feel they have any choice in their day to day, can meditate and find relief. No one can ever control  your thoughts. In your thoughts is where you can find total freedom.

Conditioning

A child would not know of, or necessarily be caught up in performing rituals or services, thus dogmas and religions wouldn’t be important. However, most children understand (by way of parental conditioning) that honoring their parents, or those that care for them, is important. I find a personal fulfillment in the honoring of my ancestors, if for no other reason than I would not be here in this life, physically, had it not been for them.

It matters not to me of which religion or dogma my ancestors believed, or practiced. I am still here. I am thinking it would be better somehow if I came to be here via the LOVE they expressed for one another, but I am mature enough to realize that is not the case for everyone. Some are born outside of, and apart from a loving experience, but that does not mean they cannot find love. And it certainly does not mean they are not worth of being loved.

Feel free

Children understand that truth, love, and compassion FEELS freeing. It does not feel good to be called names (even in a joking way), and it does not feel good to be excluded or neglected.

Children do not get all that caught up in whether they’ve lived before, or whether someone leaves their experience, as long as their present moment is nurturing and fun–full of new and continuing opportunities for BEing part of something, anything!

Therefore, the use of exclusionary words, such as “only” cause divisiveness.

When you limit anyone about anything with words such as “only” you are using control, or attempting to guide them in one direction. The Omni-everything allows. Control is an illusion, and one that is best let go of, if one prefers to FEEL free.

In freedom and love,

OM

We Are All Connected.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. OM

What a Feeling!

What a FEELING

I must say, today has been a ridiculously aWEsOMe day! I’ve just been published, a second time!

Celebrating the book

The book launched on Amazon.com with amazing success… by this evening, yes the end of the first full day – the book “The Energy of Receiving” reached #3 in the Self-Help category, AND #1 in the Self-Help, Spiritual category!!! I, along with my publisher, and the other 16 authors (18 total) who co-created this book are THRILLED!!!

I’m reading my copy of the book and posting a review on Amazon about it SOON!

What a FEELING!
What a FEELING!

Getting ready for the yoga festival

Also, my husband and I will be participating in the Awakening Into the Sun weekend festival in St. Petersburg March 7th and 8th 2015, and we’ll have a booth where I’ll be selling, and signing copies of the book. I will have 20 paperback copies for sale so, if you want a signed copy, come on out!

Glorious feelings!

As an empath, it will be interesting to see how much I feel during the event, and how many times I experience “God bumps”. I continue to note, when and where I feel God bumps, and it seems that it’s whenever I am talking about God, or spiritual (deep thought) topics, become familiar with someone’s pain (mental, emotional, or physical), or open a gateway (to unlimited possibility).

Update

The festival was an aWEsOMe success! We enjoyed meeting many new people, reconnecting with friends, watching and listening to new musicians, and sharing with other like-minded, like-spirited folk! I will be blogging about many of our friends in the upcoming weeks and months, so stay tuned! 🙂

On the eve of our 10th wedding anniversary, my husband and I really have a lot to be thankful for, and celebrate.

About the book

You can click below to check out my latest book and buy, if you’re so inclined (and thank you). My chapter is called, “Be Open To Receive”.

The book includes many lessons I’ve learned. Lessons to do with putting aside one’s judgments and making s-p-a-c-e to allow God, the Universe, the Law of Attraction, or whatever name you want to call the magical, mysterious LIMITLESS unseen power of Energy, to bring you all you’ve ever really needed, at just the right time.
