JOHN OF GOD CRYSTAL HEALING BED OCTOBER SPECIAL EVENT
NEED LOVE? LET IT INTO YOUR OWN HEART BY TAMMY COLVIN
CELEBRATING SAMHAIN - WHAT PAGAN HOLIDAY IS IT?
SPIRIT SCIENCE - CREATED BY JORDAN DAVID PEARCE DUCHNYCZ
SPIRIT & CRYSTAL CONNECTIONS' HEALING CIRCLE
I visited the Casa Dom Inacio in Brazil several years ago. I experienced the Crystal bed on several occasions and can attest to it healing power. I was granted permission by John of God to bring a Crystal Bath to the Rochester area.
What is Crystal Bed Therapy?
The concept of the Crystal Bed, also called crystal bath therapy, was channeled through John of God by the spiritual healing Doctors. It was developed for practical use and incorporated as an important healing modality at the spiritual healing center affectionately known as "the Casa Dom Inacio in Brazil." For visitors to the Casa, the Crystal Healing Beds are available to all and are prescribed by the Entities (Healing Spirit Guides) of the Casa for rejuvenation, alignment and balancing of our energy fields, which in turn aids in the process of spiritual and physical healing.
How does the "Crystal Bed" produce healing?
The "Crystal Bed" combines the power of Color Therapy and Crystal Healing Therapy. This energy stream produces beneficial stimulation on many physical and energetic levels. This combination of healing energies is further GREATLY ENHANCED by the "Healing Spirits" of the Casa de Dom Inacio. These Healing Entities are the Spiritual Beings that work in and around the Casa de Dom Inacio and with all those deeply connected to the Casa family. These are the Entities that are incorporated by the Medium "John of God." The colored light shining through the crystals is a tool that the Spiritual Doctors use to channel their healing energy into the individual receiving the "Crystal Bed Healing." As the color is transmitted through the crystal onto the corresponding chakra, the chakra is cleansed, energized, and brought into balance with all of the other chakras. This allows the other aspects of our self, whether it be mental, emotional or physical, to be brought into balance. For when the chakras are out of balance, all the other aspects of us will also be out of balance. Through this session the body's own natural healing mechanisms are able to function as they was designed to do. The "Crystal Bed” Healing" cleanses, balances and recharges the body's energy and creates a deep relaxation. It is also a great preventative modality.
What is a Crystal Bed?
A Crystal Bed has 7 extremely clear and highly polished Vogel cut quartz crystals suspended approximately 12 inches above the client. Each of the quartz crystals has been cut to a specific frequency. Each crystal is aligned above one of the seven human energy centers or chakras. Colored lights, chosen to match the vibration frequency of chakra colors, radiate light and energy through the crystals to each respective chakra, ( energy centers of the spiritual and physical body) and shine on and off in certain rhythms to cleanse, balance, and align your energies. The individual receiving the session rests face up with eyes closed, bathing in the energy. For the best results, the Entities request you wear white or light color clothing, and simply maintain an attitude of openness, receptivity, and create a clear mind.
Many people who have had "Crystal Bed Healing" Sessions have reported some of the following:
An increase of definitions in the senses (taste-food, sight-colors, touch-awareness)
Feeling more energized- clear thoughts- ability to focus
Feeling a deep relaxation- a connection to the earth and/or universe
Feeling more at peace within themselves- a balance of the chakras
Feeling less stressed and an increased sense of overall well being- increase in health
A deeper spiritual understanding of themselves, and their life situations
Gaining insights into their future life path and the evolution of Mother Earth
Gaining insights of the cause of disease states- looking inward into personal health
Receiving guidance as to how to best deal with their disease or problems
The Crystal Bed is coming to The New Moon Psychic and Holistic Healing Expo on October 21 & 22! Energy Practitioner, Bonnie Sandera has been granted use of this amazing healing tool. Sessions are 30 minutes; at the discounted rate of $50. Call Bonnie at 585-301-6957 to pre-reserve you spot!
You can also book appointments for the John of God Crystal Bed Friday October 6 & Saturday October 7 12-7 at Lightways Journey Community Center, 31 Market Street, Brockport, NY 585-281-8670.
During this auspicious time, the Beings of Light are consistently imploring us to stay focused on the Light. Even in the face of seeming adversity, it is vital that weuse our thoughts, words, feelings and actions to empower what we want to manifest in our lives and in the world. If we focus the power of our attention on our fears and the negativity that is being pushed to the surface to be healed and transmuted into Light, we will empower and sustain the very things we are trying to eliminate on this planet.
Know that with every thought, word, feeling and action you are either adding to the Light of the world or the shadows. Be cognizant of this Truth, and monitor the focus of your attention moment by moment.
In order to inspire you to keep on keeping on, I would like to share with you once again how critical mass affects our ability to change our lives.
Reaching Critical Mass
There is a phenomenon that often causes Humanity to feel frustrated and powerless when it comes to changing our lives. That phenomenon is known as reaching critical mass or, in pop-culture lingo, the tipping point.
When we awaken, we begin to understand the power of our thoughts and feelings. We realize the importance of monitoring the focus of our attention and of controlling our behavior patterns. As a result of our new insight, we put forth the effort to think positively. We strive to hold our thoughts and feelings on what we want to manifest in our lives, instead of on our fears and the things we do not want in our lives. We envision Heaven on Earth, and we breathe life into our thoughtforms with positive affirmations, meditations, decrees, buoyant joy and heartfelt enthusiasm.
But often, after what seems like a valiant effort, we continue to experience many of the same old problems. This unfortunate situation causes us to become discouraged and to lose faith in our ability to change our lives. At that point, we feel like our efforts are futile. That is when we decide to give up, and we stop trying to make our lives better.
When we let go of our visions and our hope, we regress into our old negative thinking patterns. We start dwelling on our fears, problems and challenges instead of our goals, hopes and dreams. As a result of this tragic relapse, things get worse in our lives and our situations appear even more hopeless.
Once we understand the phenomenon of reaching critical mass, it will give us the courage to persevere until our goals are accomplished. We will have the courage to stay focused on the Light, even in the face of apparent failure, which is ALWAYS an illusion.
Everything is comprised of energy, vibration and consciousness. When we explore a minuscule fraction of the vast science of quantum physics, we learn that when something reaches critical mass, there is an UNSTOPPABLE SHIFT that takes place. For instance, when an electron is increasing in vibration, the moment it reaches a critical mass of the higher vibration, the entire electron ascends into the new frequency. The instant the electron reaches critical mass, nothing can prevent this unstoppable shift.
Critical mass is very complex and unique to every situation, but the Company of Heaven has said that for simplicity, we can think of reaching critical mass as 51 percent of the energy, vibration and consciousness of whatever it is we are talking about. For instance, when 51 percent of an electron is vibrating at the higher frequency, the remaining 49 percent is instantly absorbed into the new vibration.
Okay, so how does this facet of quantum physics affect our ability to take charge of our own lives?
As we strive to improve our lives, the same laws of quantum physics apply. These are Universal Laws to which we are ALL subject. When empowering a vision or thoughtform, the moment a critical mass of energy, vibration and consciousness is reached, in alignment with our vision, nothing can stop it from manifesting. The problem is that we never know just when we are going to reach that magical moment of critical mass.
There are often no outer-world signs to indicate that we are on the brink of reaching critical mass. In fact, many times it looks like we are very far away from that instant of transformation. The reason for this is that our I AM Presence is giving us the opportunity to transmute the blocks and resistance to our vision that have surfaced to be cleared out of the way. When this happens, we usually feel a little overwhelmed. We erroneously conclude that our efforts must be failing, and we just give up.
The Beings of Light have said that many times we have been a breath away from reaching a critical mass of our goal. Since we did not realize that, we got discouraged and stopped working toward our life-transforming changes. Consequently, our hopes and dreams were never fulfilled.
Let’s not allow that to happen this time. This is a year of new beginnings, and we have never had the magnitude of assistance from On High that we are receiving in 2008.
So, in very practical terms, critical mass means that when we are striving to create prosperity in our lives, the moment our thoughts, words, actions and feelings are vibrating with a critical mass of prosperity consciousness instead of poverty consciousness, our life circumstances will shift, and we will experience prosperity. The moment a critical mass of our energy is aligned with self-esteem and love, we will magnetize positive relationships into our lives. The moment a critical mass of our energy is aligned with peace, harmony and balance, we will manifest those Divine Qualities tangibly in our life experiences.
The key to our success is that we must keep on keeping on even in the face of adversity. It is vital for us to understand that the Light of God is infinitely more powerful than any fragmented human miscreation we may have inadvertently created. Poverty has no power over the Abundance of God. Our Divine Potential is infinitely more powerful than disease, failure, dysfunctional relationships, hatred, greed, corruption, war or any of the other humanly-created maladies appearing on the screen of Life.
As long as we stay focused on the Light and consecrate our energy to empower only the positive experiences we want to create in our lives and in the world, we will manifest our visions and dreams faster than we can possibly imagine.
Whatever you do, do not give up!
This information is being given to us by the Beings of Light in the Realms of Illumined Truth during this critical moment on Earth to help us remember that if we do not like what is happening in our lives, we have the option to do something about it. This is true for each of us individually, and it is true for all of us collectively as a global family.
We do not have to believe in the various Universal Laws in order to exist on Earth, but since we are ALL subject to them, it is just common sense for us to try to accept them. We do not have to believe that every single thought, word, action and feeling we have will go out and affect the world and then return to us to affect our personal lives, but this is happening scientifically, to the letter, in spite of any disbelief we may have.
It is important that we put things back into perspective and accept responsibility for turning our lives around. When we deliberately focus on transforming our lives and cocreating Heaven on Earth, our efforts are empowered by the unfathomable Light of our I AM Presence. Then, if we invoke the assistance of the entire Company of Heaven to intercede on our behalf, our success is assured.
I am delighted to invite everyone around the world to join in this powerful group prayer and visualization by Patricia Cota-Robles. Whenever you do this, simply have the intention of breathing together with the Love of the Creator through our Divine Heart Space...for with One Consciousness, One Mind, and the Love of the Creator - we will help manifest the spiritual upliftment, healing, and ascension of every human being - and help manifest heaven on earth.

Sun with his artistic touch,
streaks skies of blue with rosy blush,
trimming Oak and Maple too,
crimson reds with yellow hue.
Birch and Hemlock, purple and gold,
apples, pumpkins bright and bold,
burns by day and cools by night,
cloaking trees in fiery might.
Wispy winds and tumbling leaves,
cypress scents within the breeze,
starry eves and harvest moon,
sets the stage for crickets' tune.
As spiders spin their tapestry
and crickets sing in symphony,
their final song of destiny,
it's clear for all the world to see,
Autumn's vibrant majesty!
Communication is vital when it comes to expressing anger or other intense emotions. Knowing the difference between venting and dumping is a positive start to having clarity in your relationships. If someone starts dumping on you, it’s fine to excuse yourself and tell them “I can talk to you when you are calmer.” Learning to protect yourself in this way, particularly if you are a sensitive person, is an important form of self-care.

There is someone in my life who seems to know, with uncanny (and rather spooky) precision, exactly when I need a little extra love and understanding, a little slack and compassion. But instead of responding with that extra support, she senses that slight desire and becomes needy and defensive. Recently in my experience there have been major changes for me, including exploring new careers and the passing of my sweet canine companion and favorite hiking buddy, Samantha. At each turn, precisely when I could have used that little extra dollop of understanding, this individual has withdrawn and become demanding. Even snarky. My knee jerk reaction is to feel hurt and let down. Hoping for a different response from her, I’ve stepped out of my power and denied myself an opportunity to heal and grow.
It has taken me years to recognize that subtle energy shift and until I began to shift my perspective and take responsibility for my personal role in my relationship dynamics, I have thought my need for extra love that went unfulfilled was a weakness in me. It has made me feel as if I am undeserving of support when I need it most. It felt as if my humanness and my emotions were unacceptable. It was as if I was worthy of love only when I had some sort of mask covering my genuine feelings. And then my need for love generated feelings of shame. Oh that cycle of dysfunction.
Over time I began learning to talk myself through these sort of crises. And to me that is what they feel like. Once I began to shift my perspective and witness the patterns of response I had, I could describe it as feeling like a kitten up a tree. Early on I needed outside assistance to help coax me down from my tree of crisis. After some practice, I was able to recognize my kitten-up-a-treeness and have learned how to talk myself out of any tree I was beginning to scramble up to escape the chaos I was feeling.
I was encouraged early on to look outside myself for love and approval and validation in order to help validate others. To seek comfort and self-approval was labeled selfish and willful. Sound familiar? But when we look to others for that validation, how often do they behave themselves and give us what we need? How dare they seek only to comfort themselves! When I consider it, this person may have no conscious awareness of how they are reacting. I imagine she is doing the best she can and is not able to see a different pov, and to expect her to is a condition I choose not to uphold. OK, easier said than done, but she is free to perceive the world, and me, in any way she chooses, regardless of how I wish it to be. We cannot change anyone else – we can only change how we look at things and whether we choose to react in the moment or respond with some clarity.
With time the disappointment and thirst for validation is lessening, but the freedom I have to now pivot, reframe the feeling and then respond by taking ownership and not blaming is liberating. Deep down I still long for that approval and unconditional support, but in order to be free I need to take the reigns and steer my own boat towards my own love and approval. The transitions still feel awkward, but change can be that way until practice becomes habit. As I change how I respond to each situation, not only does it become a bit easier each time, but the ripple effects persist forwards, backwards and three dimensionally throughout time to heal all levels of misdirected need of love everywhere. I am able to understand things anew and soothe the past, present and future with each choice I make to respond differently. Each instance makes healing more attainable for all. And who doesn’t need more love and understanding?
The pain I feel is genuine, but not unique. It is shared and ancient, trailing back to the time we somehow collectively forgot our connection to Source as the origin of the love in our hearts. It is an Earthly, if not Universal, yearning to reunite with the love of Source. To become whole again. Wholly Holy. The illusion is that we are separate from Source, but that love is right there, whispering, waiting, wanting us to open to let it in. Our shared yearning on Earth is to love and be loved.
I can choose to love this person (or any person or thing) without the condition of their offering freely what I think I need from them and instead offer that love to myself and let them off the hook. Say to myself (in my heart and my mind) I am responsible for giving myself the love I need and that they are free to act however they choose. Give them that energetic liberation as I free myself from that conditional form of love too. Thank them for their refusing to give me what I think I need from them because it has encouraged me to connect to a limitless boundless source of love and acceptance I can tap into until I am full, even overflowing, by offering myself the love I deserve. Then I have an abundance to offer to others and to the world.

ALL OF LIFE IS A JOURNEY

Spirit & Crystal Connections' Healing Circle
SPIRIT SCIENCE - CREATED BY JORDAN DAVID PEARCE DUCHNYCZ
Here is a great You Tube with many videos on all types of metaphysical and spiritual topics. Since our mission to enlighten and inform, we will be posting at least one a month to be sure you have a great background in many aspects of metaphysics and spirituality.
This episode focuses on: Male and female energy can manifest an in infinite amount of ways, both physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Male and female energy is present in everyone, we must practice observing this as a concept beyond a gender or person.
Male energy is the like a forward pointing laser, it is quick, piercing, giving, logical, rational, mental and thinking.
Female energy is like a leaf in the wind, it goes with the flow based on feeling and natural curves. It is receiving, nurturing, intuitive, emotional and tender in nature.
There is quite a difference between concern and worry when it comes to the way one handles day-to-day life and the obstacles that occur along the way. A problem-focused mentality which is called Murphy Law Syndrome, worries and sees their obstacles in the form of problems. This can cause ego struggles and pain. This leads to greater fears, limitations, self-doubt, negativity, judging, powerless words, time pressures, and more problems. There is a continual focus on it by dwelling on the obstacles and playing the self-pity game. Constantly complain, blame, moan and groan forming a domino effect in all areas of their life. Their attitude is affected, becoming negative to the point where they are not willing to let go of the struggles and attempt to control the situation. Through persistent feeding negativity, they are unable to ‘let go of the chattered thoughts and complaining and relax. They feel stuck and unable to become pro-active and resolve the problem, feel like a victim.
The more one worries, the more their attitude is affected negatively. It has been medically proven that a negative attitude affects your health. One can manifest depression, headaches, ulcers, colds, heart attacks, and even cancer because they are repressing their emotions and thoughts in a negative way. These repressed thoughts and emotions are in the form of negative energy. When these negative energies are stored in your body and are not released, the body reacts by getting ill.
List of results that come from a non-positive attitude:
* Your focus on what you do not want
* Your focus on DOING in order to control some outcome
* Your focus is on negative results
* Your emphasis is on what you do not want
* You end up attracting more problems
* You have conflicts, frustrations, fears, etc.
* The results are procrastination and/or quitting
* You feel out of control and powerless
People who perceive their obstacles as challenges experience feelings of concern rather than that of worry. They focus on their obstacles and life with a 'Serendipity Attitude'. They choose peace, love, joy, prosperity and well-being. They choose to live life BEING love, joyful, and peaceful. They are pro-active and look for solutions that support overall well-being and harmonious peace for all concerned not just themselves. They know the challenges they are facing are not permanent and that there are lessons to learn. Their attitude is positive because they look at these challenges as opportunities for growth as they focus on being in the present moment with gratitude.
The more you accept life for what it is and what it is not, the greater inner peace, joy and love is experienced. From that place you are better suited to know how to live a pro-active life that allows you to enjoy life rather than just live. Enjoying the simple things that life offers, such as, nature, children laughing, animals’ affection, people laughing, reading a book, nature, and taking a walk. By realizing that you don't have to DO something to HAVE greater peace, love or a positive attitude, you enjoy life more. ‘Doing’ in order to ‘Have’ joy, love, peace is looking OUTSIDE for joyfulness, peacefulness, love, etc. All that is necessary is to GO INSIDE and choose to BE at peace, to be happy, to experience inner love. Thinking grateful thoughts supports a positive attitude. Feeling Appreciation, supports joyful living. Gratitude and Appreciation is the means of moving your consciousness and emotions off what is making you unhappy to that of choosing to BE happy.
List of results that come from a positive attitude
* You focus on what you would enjoy.
* You choose to BE joyful, peaceful, and loving
* Your emphasis is on positivity and opportunities
* You receive insights and innovative ideas.
* You attract people who are supportive and caring
Comparatively between the two lists, you can see it takes fewer steps and far less invested energy to create intentions when you have a positive attitude than to get goals in life and attempt to control the outcome with a negative attitude. In order for you to enhance a positive attitude, it is imperative to take responsibility for your life. You alone are responsible for your happiness and well being. It is important for you to truly know who you are and what makes you happy. By Being happy, you will create a more fulfilling life. By Doing, to then have something to BE happy, is backwards. Being happy, claiming it and choosing it, provides for more effective decisions making. Mistakes occur along the way, yet they won’t be perceived as failures to blame on another or one oneself. Rather, see them as opportunities to grow, mature and develop more wisdom. You release those feelings and thoughts that are not caring or have compassion toward another. You accept and choose peace vs. attempt to figure out or understand the reason. You use discernment rather than judgment. You avoid personalizing, so your attitude is not affected by any possible unfavorable behaviors.
When you take better care of yourself, you enjoy life more. Your attitude says, "I choose to live life and I would rather enjoy life than worry about it." By taking responsibility for your life and the obstacles you face, the decisions you make are more productive. Your life is run by what brings you happiness and well being because you know you deserve it. You assert in a responding manner with conviction and compassion, rather than become reactive in unpleasant feelings and thoughts on situations and people that attempt to affect your happiness and well being. Having a positive attitude includes balancing your life in all areas-including family, friends, health, exercise, work, spiritual, education, and eating healthy. You are enhancing a positive attitude, by trusting your intuition and allowing it to be your guide rather than allowing fears and other outside sources to be your guide or tell you what is best for you.

NEED LOVE? LET IT INTO YOUR OWN HEART

There's a crispness in the air that greets the morning sun, a feeling of anticipation, a new day has begun.
Harvest days are ending, winter is drawing near, yet in between is surely the most special time of year.
They call it Indian Summer, and it seems to fit the bill, for it's as if the Lord took a feathered brush and painted all the hills.
Now as I sit contented, atop of one of these, a book in hand to pass the time, the sound of a gentle breeze,
I can almost imagine an Indian child upon this mountaintop, looking down at the land of her forefathers, lost within her thoughts
For in every persons lifetime some heartache may occur, but on these hills in quiet solitude, God helps us to endure.
So I say that the eyes are a window, beauty is found within the soul, and upon the hills of Autumn, that are strewn with red and gold.

We can all get upset at times but there are healthy ways to express frustration and anger. It is important, especially for empaths and sensitive people to be aware of the difference between venting and dumping as the later can beat down one’s positivity and self worth.
As a psychiatrist and empath myself I have a hard time tolerating loud noises. So for the sake of preservation I have a “no yelling” rule in my house. For sensitive people, a healthier way to express anger is through venting, whereas dumping is toxic and can traumatize and overwhelm us.
For instance, if your spouse wants to vent, ask him or her to make a formal request by saying, “I have a request. I need to vent about an issue. Is that okay to do now?” This gives you some warning so you’re not hijacked. Then, it’s your choice to discuss the issue right away or later when you have adequate time and feel more centered.
Here are some guidelines from my book, The Empath’s Survival Guide to follow when you or someone else is communicating anger.

My entire life has been a journey to self-discovery. I am only now coming to an awareness that I need to know who I am. However, I have unconsciously sought the person that I needed and should be all of my life. We all, most of us, have wondered at some point in our lives, who we were and what are we here for. What is my purpose in life?
As we ponder the age old question about this life, often we allow what we do as an occupation to define the answer. This is often sufficient for many of us, if we have allowed ourselves to do by profession the thing that brings us peace and joy and happiness. For those who have chosen to do what they love, the question of life is not so pressing upon them. However, when you have lived a lifetime of feeling like you are at the “grind stone” and work is just to meet life’s demands, there is usually something left unanswered.
I retired early at age 55. I had a really good job. I can’t say that I enjoyed the job. It had excellent pay. I like the people I worked with. I did not have problems getting the work done. However, something was missing. As I look back on that time, there was nothing pressing me to retire from the outside. Something on the inside made me jump at the first opportunity to retire. This retirement presented a turning point for me on my journey that I did not recognize at the time. Without that job title to define me, I lost a part of who I had been and thought I was.
When I returned to work at the Department of Social Services, I asked myself if I had made a mistake in accepting that job I had never worked so hard for so little pay in comparison. But for the first time in my life, I found fulfillment in a job. I grew to love my job so deeply. Finally I was in a position to make a difference in the lives of others. Although I was inundated with paperwork, cases, phone calls and deadline, I felt purpose. It brought joy to my heart to do something that changed someone’s life and bring peace to worried minds. It felt good to be able to find answers and assist with needs for the elderly. My fulfillment was not in the job title or power of the position. It was in the service of helping others. I could and would actually say, “I love my job” for the first time in my life. I had never been so happy helping and serving others.
I set out on this journey to discover myself, so I thought. In many ways, I believe I have always been looking for me. I think sometimes we can find ourselves looking for what we already have and are. When we allow others, be they friends, family or foe, to define us, we won’t be able to see what we already know within us. When we let others tell us what we should be or do, sometimes we get it right but often times we get it wrong.
I recall some years ago when I felt a call to the ministry, I spoke to my Pastor at that time about it. When he asked me why I felt this and what kind of ministry I felt led to do, I prayed about it and gave him this answer. I said I believe my calling is to minister across denominational, cultural and racial lines to serve people and bring them together in unity. I desired to help all people come together and find their way to a life of love, hope and peace. My response from him was that I was nothing but a servant. At the time, I felt a bit insulted and belittled by his remark. But I have since come to understand that although he did not mean it as a compliment; he was telling me the truth. I agree with him at this point in my life.
Although I feel that I have added some other qualities over time to this servanthood. I do love serving people. This is what true ministry is, serving people. It is the most fulfilling thing that I have ever had opportunity to do. And it does not necessary need to be done inside of a building. It brings me much joy and happiness to help others become than they were when I first met them.
So now I have to ask myself, what am I looking for? What am I looking to discover about myself that I don’t already know? I believe it is what everyone else is looking for. I believe another way to look at it would be to ask, how do I fit in this game called life? What is my part in this collective of existence we are calling life?
We really are all connected regardless of religious beliefs, race, cultural beliefs, occupation or lifestyles. My part in all of this, I believe, is to serve and help others become their best selves or at least help them on their journey as we cross paths in this life. My purpose is to build up not to tear down It is to be a voice of encouragement and a mirror to reflect back the best in those who stop to look into my words. It is to love without judgment, to offer acceptance of differences and allow authenticity in strengths and weaknesses.
A part of the journey, I also believe, is to seek what we are giving. This could be the reason we give what we do. All that I have given and the ways that I have served others, I must now return that back unto me. My calling and purpose is not just for others. If I am going to truly live out my calling and my purpose, I must start with myself. I am told to love my neighbor as myself. So if I am to find myself on this journey, I must love myself without judgment, accept my own differences from others and allow myself to be authentic in my weaknesses and my strengths. I must become okay with being my own servant. I must be okay with filling my cup of happiness and joy so that I can in turn have enough to extend to others. In order to serve others, I must first serve myself.
Today I take another step towards self-knowing, self-acceptance and self-love.
About Rebecca: I am Rebecca Washington. I have not always appreciated myself, my gifts, talents, intellect, internal or external beauty that I possess. The lack of appreciation and acknowledgement has been reflected in how I think the world sees me. But the world can only see what I show it and allow it to see.
Casting all of that behind me, I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements brought me to this: "Love, Rebecca."
CELEBRATING SAMHAIN - WHAT PAGAN HOLIDAY IS IT?
Samhain is a festival of the Dead, meaning "Summer's End" and pronounced saah-win or saa-ween, Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year. For many practitioners, Samhain also is the beginning of the spiritual new year. Originating in ancient Europe as a Celtic Fire festival, Samhain is now celebrated worldwide. In the northern hemisphere, many Pagans celebrate Samhain from sundown on October 31 through November 1. Others hold Samhain celebrations on the nearest weekend or on the Full or New Moon closest to this time. Some Pagans observe Samhain a bit later, or near November 6, to coincide more closely with the astronomical midpoint between Fall Equinox and Winter Solstice.
With the growth and spread of Christianity as the dominant religion throughout Europe, Samhain time took on Christian names and guises. All Saints' Day or All Hallows on November 1 commemorated Christian saints and martyrs. All Souls' Day on November 2 was a remembrance for all souls of the dead. With the coming of Christian Spaniards to Mexico, the indigenous customs of honoring the dead at this time of year mixed with Roman Catholicism and gave birth to the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, in early November. Samhain shares the ancient spiritual practice of remembering and paying respects to the Dead with these related religious holidays of Christianity.
Halloween, short for All Hallow's Eve, is celebrated on and around October 31. Although occurring at the same time of year and having roots in end-of-harvest celebrations of the ancient past, Halloween and Samhain are not the same, but two separate holidays that differ considerably in focus and practice. In contemporary America and elsewhere, Halloween is a secular folk holiday. Halloween has evolved to be both a family-oriented children's holiday as well as an occasion for those of all ages to creatively express themselves and engage in play in the realm of make-believe and fantasy
Samhain's long association with death and the Dead reflects Nature's rhythms. In many places, Samhain coincides with the end of the growing season. Vegetation dies back with killing frosts, and therefore, literally, death is in the air. For those who have lost loved ones in the past year, Samhain rituals can be an opportunity to bring closure to grieving and to further adjust to their being in the Otherworld by spiritually communing with them.
Sunset on Samhain is the beginning of the Celtic New Year. The old year has passed, the harvest has been gathered, cattle and sheep have been brought in from the fields, and the leaves have fallen from the trees. The earth slowly begins to die around us.
This is a good time for us to look at wrapping up the old and preparing for the new in our lives. Think about the things you did in the last twelve months. Have you left anything unresolved? If so, now is the time to wrap things up. Once you’ve gotten all that unfinished stuff cleared away, and out of your life, then you can begin looking towards the next year.
KEEPING YOUR ATTITUDE POSITIVE DURING TOUGH TIMES BY ANGELICA ROSE
BY DEB MONTELEONE
Cultivating inner peace is the foundation of all spiritual practices. Our inner world is reflected in our outer world experiences through connections with others, and is expressed as compassion, justice, promoting non-violence, and embracing diversity. While fear, hatred, and violence are infectious, so is peace. Therefore, as Peacekeepers or Light workers, we must commit to practicing peace in all that we do.
We must stay composed no matter how hateful people around us may be acting. We must embrace conflict with equanimity. We must remain steady so that conflicted persons feel safe in our presence. Over time, as people with opposing ideas begin to feel safe, we will have been a ripple effect of peace in our world. Maintaining a steady state of calm, will allow others to lower their guard, feel safe, and release their need for friction, or fighting; all of which is an essential first step that will begin to disarm the world.
Nevertheless, there are many days in which conditions from the outside world can easily upset our inner peace, when we are not committed to the practice. I teach my students to learn to experience turbulent emotions as Spiritual Guides. When you feel yourself become worried, upset, or anxious, thank the emotion for showing you that you have forgotten your place of peace. In that moment of Awareness, you then get to choose how you really want to respond to what the outside world is showing you.
I frequently invite my students to make a 40-Day commitment to Practicing Peace. This will take constant, daily reminding yourself of the commitment. For example, if you know that you have a “default” emotion that is easily triggered, such as anxiety, or road rage, you will now begin to use this trigger as your personal Guide to inner peace. As you notice the emotion rising, you pause, thank the emotion, and then reaffirm your vow to the commitment. A vow for your 40-Day practice could be stated such as:
• Hearing raised or hostile voices in public, on the news, or at work, will now guide me into being calm, peaceful, and kind.
• When I hear of suffering or tragedy, I will be reminded of my commitment to practicing peace, and work to reduce the suffering
of all Beings.
• Whenever I now feel anger rising, I vow to not add any violence or pain into our world.
This type of practice will give you direct knowledge of your own nature. You will come to know the habits of the mind, yet through a higher level of Awareness come to KNOW your higher mind, your highest potentiality for being. The reward of this level of Awareness is freedom. You become unshakeable. Additionally, knowing and understanding yourself, allows you to also understand others, which ultimately leads to outer world interconnectedness, and inner world peace.
The key to experiencing a profound and transformative 40-Day commitment is devoting yourself to, and engaging in, a daily practice that brings peace to your inner self. Choose one thing. Many students at first jump in with great enthusiasm, and think they will do yoga, eat healthy, go to bed early, but are overwhelmed within days. Choose only one. Less is more in this case. Daily yoga, stretching, walking, cycling, hiking, reading sacred texts for 30 minutes; choose any ONE thing that calms your body, mind, and spirit. I highly recommend meditation as the chosen practice. I have seen many of my student’s lives transform once they committed to a daily meditation practice.
My life was also transformed by committing to a series of 40-Day practices that lasted over a period of 1008 days. This occurred many years ago, but I can personally affirm to the benefits of what a 40-Day practice will do for a person who remains devoted to their purpose. For the past several years I have been mostly teaching or coaching, which has been tremendously rewarding, yet recently realized that I missed these transformative practices in my own life. I missed being in deep “relationship” with my inner self.
The International Day of Peace was celebrated on September 21st, and on that day I vowed to begin a new personal 1008-Day spiritual journey with the sole purpose of only speaking in peace, being in peace, and teaching peace. This deepened vow is my devoted purpose for serving others, and will be the foundation for all future classes, retreats, courses, local and global events, and teachings. I feel vibrantly alive.
Peacekeepers and Light workers know that the commitment to being in service to others must be exercised daily. I invite you to become profoundly devoted to your commitment in a new way. May Peace be the guide of all that we do. May the light in you, ignite the light in others.

Experiences and reflections from the world of Energy Healing --
What would Kindness do?
So many of us feel a strong empathetic connection to those around us. We focus on strengthening our energy field, intending that other’s vibrations will not negatively impact us. What if we can turn that sensitivity into a superpower, one that can make the world a little better with each comment or action?
There are so many moments in our days when we have a choice of how we respond to other people. Will we meet anger with anger, fear with impatience, frustration with dismissal? Sometimes I visualize myself wearing a baseball hat or t-shirt with “WWKD” emblazoned on it in glitter, and I take a deep breath. I’ve said it before - Humaning is Hard! No matter what others say or do we are in charge of our own reaction, our own words and deeds.
If you could see Kindness manifested in a human, standing beside you (perhaps a combination of Kwan Yin, Mother Theresa, Buddha, Jesus), arm around your shoulders, whispering in your ear. How would you be encouraged to respond? Kindness allows others to go first - even if it’s not their turn. Kindness doesn’t always need to be right. Kindness responds with encouragement, gladness, and praise wherever they are needed. Kindness offers help whenever possible - even if it’s not always easy. Kindness takes time to listen without judgment. Kindness takes true delight in others’ accomplishments, good fortune, and joy. Kindness hugs, and holds hands, and holds space, whether in person or from afar. Kindness understands that humans are sometimes forgetful, reactive, stressed, and self-centered, and finds a way to forgive and move forward. Kindness prays, and heals, and loves, whenever possible - and it is always possible.
There is not much we have real control over in our lives but we can choose how to respond to people and events. Wrap yourself in your Kindness Cloak, put on that Kindness Tiara and offer your sweetest energy to the world around you. Remember, what you put out into the universe comes back to you threefold.
Remember - Kindness is just Love with its workboots on.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VENTING AND DUMPING
(Adapted from The Empath’s Survival Guide by Judith Orloff MD)
Vicki Snyder-Young co-owner of the store Spirit & Crystal Connections in Rochester has started a healing group to assist with personal requests. Every Monday the group gathers to focus the healing energy to the list of names that Vicki has collected. If you know of someone (humans and animals) who would like to be included on the list or need further details please email - email@example.com
Hitch hikers from the astral realm are opportunistic entities that attach to a being in order to experience energy and life. Without the being they are attached to they have no real existence. These can be acquired through no fault of the human from emotional trauma or a nature that is very receptive to life in all its forms. Think of a sponge. No one would blame a sponge for soaking up water.
Also, the soul and over-soul in search of certain experiences will call in an attachment so in that sense the attachment is in service to the human/soul even though they can cause great distress and distortion.
The path to releasing such attachments is the same path to gnosis. It is admirable to pray and have faith and align oneself with good deeds. It is beyond needing to do any of these things that is true gnosis or knowing. The goodness and beauty that arises from being in a natural state of being is wonderful to behold. Everything flows effortlessly and life provides all needs before a need is ever noticed.
Many will resist such a state of being because on Earth there is a great love of contrast, competitiveness and stress otherwise known as tension and release. In a totally relaxed being there is no need to compare anything to another. There is no hierarchy of goodness, ability and most importantly love. Love is the natural state of being as apparent in every breath as in every space between breaths.
If one finds themselves desiring change to close the door to unwanted guests such as entity attachments, there are ceremonies and healing techniques which do so. If one wishes to have no need of healing anything anymore the path is love which leads to gnosis.
Love is not the emotional state most people think of. It is more akin to unbounded joy and allowing. Freedom! Love of Self must be internalized before it expresses outwardly for the highest good.
This knowing beyond the need for faith is the destiny of all who INSPIRE to enlightenment. Aspiring connotes effort. Inspiration comes to those who listen for it and relax whenever possible-enough to receive it.
You do exist eternally as well as temporally. Take any moment to tune into the eternal and bring that feeling back into the temporal. That it is possible now more easily than ever before is good news! Indeed!
All Is Well!
Love love love love love love love,
