out of body experiences

Hello everyone, hoping that you enjoyed your memorial day weekend. Once again I would like to put a thank you out there to all the soldiers that have lost their lives over the years fighting for the country and freedoms that we are a part of here in the United States of America.

Over the weekend I had some questions about astral travel and out  of body experiences from a family member. They had asked what I thought about them , how I felt about them, and for more information pertaining to them in general. I decided at that point that this week I would write the blog about that very subject of getting out of the human body. Anyone that can share experiences or knowledge feel free to share in the boxes below the blog.

An out of body experience is an experience that typically involves a sensation of floating outside one’s body and, in some cases, perceiving one’s physical body from a place outside one’s body. It is a really neat thing for some people and a really scary feeling for those that are not practiced in things like meditation or even astral travel or being out of the body during sleep or meditation. It really is one of those exercises that gets easier with practice and more able to hold control as you get used to it.

There are many causes or ways to be placed in an out of body experience. Some of the more common or typical ways are just simply falling asleep, whether taking a nap, or going to sleep for the night. You will have those times where you wake up and feel like you never got a wink of shut eye but you were out for a decent amount of time and shouldn’t really feel that way. Another way that some fall into the state is a near death experience. Some people claim to talk to gods, angels, or see white tunnels of light, or even relatives on the other side. We don’t always think of it but these are all out of body experiences. These can happen during long surgeries, comas, or other things where we are placed under anesthesia, or even when we are in a position of almost drowning. People that run marathons or exert amazing amounts of endurance also experience out of body because the body is unsure whether it is on air or land from moving at such amazing speeds and being in such a state of exhaustion.

This can at times be a total state of unknowing. I read a really cool story of Thomas Edison and his testing of out of body experiences. He would fall asleep and place a coin on his head. He would sit a metal bucket in his lap and when his head tipped the coin would fall off and land in the bucket. This would be loud and snap him out of it. There have been many studies over the years concerning out of body. It is all in how your brain percieves things. There are oils and stones for those of you that are into the metaphysical side of becoming better at out of body experiences and astral projection.

Astral projection is a way of doing out of body and ending up on another plane, realm, planet. This is a great way to get in touch with your guides, loved ones on the other sides, or even check in on a friend who you have not seen or heard from in quite some time.

Some of the stones I had mentioned earlier are Amethyst, sleeping with Amethyst facilitates out of body experiences and helps with intuitive dreaming, Calcite is a stone linked to the higher consciousness that facilitates the opening of higher awareness and psychic abilities, channeling, and out-of-body experiences.  It accelerates spiritual development and allows the soul to remember experiences when it returns to the body. Howlite  links into the spiritual dimensions, opening atunement and preparing the mind to receive wisdom and insights.  It assists journeys out of the body and accessing past lives. Merlinite is a magical stone that holds the imprint of the combined knowledge of shamans, alchemists, magician- priests, and other workers of magic.  Its dual coloring blends the spiritual and earthly vibrations together, giving access to the spiritual and shamanic realms.  This stone supports shamanic practices or magical ritual.

Some oils for astral projection are myrrh, frankincense, and sandalwood. You can blend them or use them separately. You can put them in a candle. Boil them on the stove or an oil burner. Get the essence around you before going into meditation or sleep. Also you can use dream pillows which are many times made out of mugwort most of the time. This will help you to remember your dreams or where you are traveling as you are out of body.

I hope that you have learned about out of body, also known as astral projection or soul journeying. Like I said, feel free to leave experieces, comments, or your own suggestions for tapping into OOBE better. Have a great week!-Ian

Happiness through teamwork

Are  the things you do each day making you happy? If you go to work each day does the job you do put a smile on your face? I was listening to the radio last week and I heard a line from a man being interviewed and it really stuck with me to where every morning when I wake up since then I ask myself. The line was “If you wouldn’t do what you do for a job for free, should you really be doing it?” This is not always an option for everyone, but if it is an option in your life then you should think about it.

It really goes back to things like wishing, dreaming, and manifesting. This life we live is a really short one. I was talking to Melissa last night while watching our son play baseball about the importance of things such as this. I had a great weekend with my kids and lately I have been thinking a lot about quotes that matter to me and lines that I can live by. Another line I saw was “spending time with children is way more important then spending money on children”. What a great way to get our young ones started on the right path, by remembering that love and companionship has no monetary value and the fact that being around people that make you feel good and smile makes you forget all about the stressful things life has to offer us. None of us are broken, the pieces of us being happy are just sometimes scattered and we need to find them and pick them up and put the puzzle back together.

Deep down we all have issues and anger and things that hold us back from our goals and what we hope to feel and be. We have to grab a hammer and shatter the things that do not serve us.  It is not a simple path and it sure is not an easy one but by being a group and a family we can all get there. Do you have fears? Do you have a family or friends in your life that roll thier eyes at you or say things like “what the hell?” when you tell them the beliefs that you have?

Well as another way of getting people together and helping us all to be on the same page and help us be one, I am putting together a new circle that will help you tap into intuition and happiness through working together, talking, helping, and  coming together to overcome our fears. If you are an empath then we will help with that. As a team and friends we will find ways to bring smiles to our faces and bring support to us all that we may not have known was posssible. This is just another way to help us to make this short life better and happier for us all. I hope you will join me next tuesday for the support circle. It will be held on the 2nd and 4th tuesday of every month and admission is just five dollars. It will start at 7 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m. It is always easier to do things or learn as a group or a team and with people who have your back. Come on out!!!

Remembering Family

Hey guys, I’m just here looking out the kitchen window and enjoying the fact that all the snow is gone from the ground here in our little town. Even though it is still super cold, the illusion that winter has ended is enough to cheer me up. Winter is a time that really gets some of us down and struggling. I am one of those people. I have been trying to find out why I am how I am lately.

Finding out where we came from can sometimes be hard for people because we don’t know vital members of the family that could be the missing puzzle piece that help to tell our story to us. I never got to meet my mother’s mom or my father’s dad. This has always made me wonder. I really would have loved to meet my grandma, I have this strange missing for her even though I never got to meet her. The same thing with my papa on my father’s side.

I really have tried tapping into this all by practicing mediumship. I have sat through seances and talked to readers but those two important relatives never really pop up. My grandpa whom I was very close with is still very close to me. He just passed a few years ago. It is a crazy thought trying to tap into relatives that never met you and trying to introduce yourself to them. I thought should I just meditate and say Hi, I’m your grandson and I never met you but I miss you tons and want to know your side of the story when it comes to family trees and stories and things such as this.

Last year at the Dia de los Muertos celebration that we had at the store was the beginning of me figuring out how to get this rolling. Family alters are a great start to make this all come into fruition for you. You can get pictures of the family members and put them on a table in the house. If there are things that you have from the person put them on the table. If you have stones that you use that help with family trees or making dreams more real this may also help you with tapping into the family roots. The family tree is the key to knowing for so many of us. If there is a book that your family makes or another family member living that knows information about the person you are trying to get in touch with, this may help you as well.

I was given a gift for Valentines day this year of a family tree coin. It is a beautiful coin with two sides. One of the sides is for the fathers side and the other is for the mothers side. I carry the coin in my pocket and also sit it on the nightstand at night while I sleep to help get the family members I wan’t to get in touch with. It helps to have a notebook on hand, much like when trying to remember any other type of dreaming. Citrine and jasper are both great stones if the feelings you have are those of grief. The jasper will help you to put joy into the situation and the citrine will help if there is a negative feeling towards it or a break in the auric field due to the situation. Other pieces that work great for setting up the family alter are things like statuary of a family shield etc..

Doing things like a past life meditation will also help you to tap into the past and see how you started and where you came from. I am not sure if this kind of thing is as important to others as it is to me. However, if it is leave comments below and we can talk back and forth about it. We have nothing without memories and family. Have a great week everybody and thank you for reading the blog. -Ian

“We have such sights to show you”

I know, I know, I titled the blog after a quote from the 1987 movie “Hellraiser”, however this blog could not be farther from that. I am going to tell you all about some amazing sights that I saw over the weekend while taking an amazing class with Lovey Adamczyk. Have you ever been in a place and you get that feeling that you just know you are supposed to be there but you don’t know why? Well that is where I found myself this weekend. I was seated in the healing room at the store for Lovey’s Basic I.E.T. class for Saturday and Sunday.  I never realized how amazing some of the sights that I would see would be.

On day one we went through the rainbow of angels. Well, I guess that the rainbow would not be the proper way to put it, especially in my head because I know that some people see angels totally by color but not me, I saw way more than I ever had imagined I would see as Saturday went by. All of this really reinstated the fact of just how visual my brain could really be and how amazing the things you can see in a simple meditation can really be.

So we had gotten through a lot of the instruction part of the class and it was time for our first meditation. The first meditation would be with angel Ariel. When Lovey does a session on you she has you draw a card, Ariel has been my card about two thirds of the time so I was familiar with her and ready to go. As we closed our eyes there it was, the calmest, brightest white light I have ever seen in my life. A feeling of peace surrounded me and I felt almost as secure as I ever had. What a great start to the day of meeting my healing angels that I would use for the next 2 days of class.

The next angel that we would be working with was angel Raphael. This was exciting as I am a person that really struggles with a feeling of being alone. Raphael is supposed to be good at working us through situations such as this. Here we went and it was time to lock in to Raphael, out of nowhere I see this huge, beautiful bridge, golden gate style, there was definitely no give to this bridge. It had a green light on the front of it and I heard a message in my hear telling me “Cross it and don’t look back”. Cross I did and I will be definitely enjoying alone time more than I have in the past because of the feeling of security gained from this exercise.

The angel Faith was the next in line for us to work with on this day. Her message much like her name is to have faith and enjoy the freedom that it brings. As we go into meditation with Faith I see a box, it opens and out flies a dragonfly. All of the sudden I get the feeling of being in a forest with huge trees with green bolts of light flowing down on me. The messages “think outside the box” and “share what burdens you”. The messages are just flowing and the sights have been quite amazing to this point.  I am really loving this class and hoping that there is more to come as we get locked into these angels.

Next in line is Gabriel. I have heard many things about Gabriel in the past but never meditated to talk or work with this angel before. He is supposed to give direction and clear the sense of uncertainty and distrust, which are also some things that I struggle with. As I close my eyes, I immediately see a huge tree with its roots very firmly planted in the soil. Then I see a bright yellow sun with some really cool blue eyes. Gabriel then says close your eyes and see this and as I did this in my meditation all of the colors of the chakra wheel, one by one came to me. I am really feeling great after this.

We then met the angel Celestina, she is here to teach us and help us with creative expression and clearing the swallowing of self expression. This was good because I am really working on saying things with soft lips and watching saying things roughly or in a way that they may hurt other people.  As we go into meditation I see the most awesome mountains with huge birds soaring above them. There are bright purple shadows everywhere and in the clouds the word “SOAR” is there. What a cool message this was.

I am at this point telling myself that there is no way that this can keep up with the awesome sights I have been shown today but let’s see anyway as it’s now time to bring in the angel known as Cassiel. This angel teaches unconditional love and relieves us from heartache and feelings of betrayal. As the lights go out and my head draws Cassiel in I see what reminds me of a nun but could be an angel and she kisses me on the forehead. At this point red takes over the sights that I am seeing and A lightning bolt hits the tree from earlier, knocking a branch off of it and I get two more messages from the amazing tree. “It’s alright to be imperfect” and “Don’t look back are both carved into the tree that at this point seems to be my tree of life.

Wow, is really all I can think and then I look to the wall which has beautiful pictures of each angel we will work with and see that there are still 3 to go. Daniel is next up and Lovey really likes him because he is almost like a bodyguard when doing integrated energy therapy. He teaches forgiveness and helps clear self judgement as well as that coming from other people. It is now time to go back into meditation and I am on a huge ship  with the most beautiful, blue sails. This is the calmest water I have ever been around and felt. As I look up on the blue sails on the ship the words “Call on me and all will be smooth sailing”. are written in huge, bold writing. The ship is just gliding across the amazing, blue body of water. I was really given the feeling of being a pirate of positivity after working with Daniel.

Sarah was on deck and coming in next. Her healing gift was empowerment and is here to help clear us from feelings of powerlessness caused by ourselves or others. During this meditation I look up and am in the middle of a really long hallway. Much like time when in meditation, this hall goes very quickly as you go step by step. I have been in many meditations lastly not more than 3o minutes and feel like I have been in for hours. I look at the wall at the end of the hall and there is a banner hanging on the wall that stated: “The hardest of goals are easily achieved by stepping one foot at a time”. This reminded me to not rush to conclusions or let little things ruin my mood. Take one step at a time whether walking into positivity or away from negativity.

Last but definitely not least is the big bopper, the one that everybody knows and loves. We would be working with Michael. He is the protector and helps us clear fear. He is here to keep us on track to finding our mission in this short period of time called life. I got a little excited because good things usually come to me while working with Michael. Eyes closed, time to count down and get some Michael time. When I think of Michael, I always think of Michael Carpenter from the Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher. Michael is a knight of the cross and a huge man, he carries a giant sword, he stands for light. He is like a human version of the angel Michael. The Michael meditation begins with a flashback from my childhood at about age 3 or 4. I see myself hopping up and down on my red rocking horse, I am sitting on my fathers lap watching He-Man and Smurfs cartoons on a Saturday morning. I am my little self playing with my dads guitar and listening to the smooth sounds of the band Devo telling me to “Whip It”. All of the sudden I see the Archangel Michael standing before me with arms wide open with flames around him. The flames change from chakra color to chakra color. Perfect vibrations are going around the flames and all is well in the world with my visions of childhood and the best times of my life. Sometimes all you need to do is put yourself in that happy place in order to feel that sense of protection that can not be found anywhere else. Amazing! That is the only way to describe this.

This day of learning got me going like no other day of learning in quite a long time. I highly recommend working with Lovey. I can not guarantee that the results that I have felt, the experiences that I have described will happen for you. My hope for you is that what I have just told you about is only the tip of the iceberg for you. I am a visual person and the sights I have seen were amazing. If you want to talk more about my weekend or have questions about this class leave a comment below. You can sign up and learn more about Lovey by checking out http://loveysangels.com.

Once again thank you so much for spending a few minutes of your time checking out the blog! -Ian

Chain of abundance

Happy Tuesday everybody!

I am hoping that all of you are safe and sound after the rough weather we had here over the last few days. Getting that snow out of the way to resume our lives isn’t always the easiest. Yesterday my stepson and I were shoveling like madmen and we look up and our neighbor comes over with his turbo powered snowblower and does half our drive for us. This goes back to what we have been talking about in the blog. People helping other people. I am very thankful for our neighbor coming over and doing this as it was a huge help.

The last few days on facebook there has been a huge push for us all to post and pass the word about each others pages. This has been huge as we are all helping each other out and checking out what we all have to offer and do in this world. Help, help, help!

This gives a huge shot of abundance to each person that does something like this. It is easy to get caught up in a world of I want to be the best. Well I have always heard my friend Hank say that there is more than enough for all of us in this world. I’ll be the first to say that until lately I highly had my doubts about that kind of saying. As of late my doubts have disappeared and I have the utmost confidence that the quote that Hank loves to remind us is one hundred percent the truth. You can read more about Hank at http://www.hhhexpos.com/about-us/

When you put something out to the universe make sure that it is always with positivity and love in it and if there is something that you want or need make sure that you think about what you can do to help someone else’s day go by smoother or what you can do to use what you want to help others.

The chain just keeps growing and we are all going to be blessed with amazing abundance because we believe in each other and ourselves. Let’s get this circle going and see that greatness that it brings to the world. Our time is coming because we are all a team, deep down this belief is going to make this world a place that can not be stopped. Positivity, Love, and Helping others will conquer all!

Have a great week and I hope to see you at circle tonight. We also have some great classes this weekend so be sure to check those out! Thanks for reading the blog! -Ian

Come together for the holidays.

Hey guys,

So last year around this time I did a blog called the Christmas/Yule Melting pot or something like that. It was pretty neat, if you haven’t checked it out please go back in the archives and check it out. This week I was thinking about what to write about and it came to me how rough of a year it has been and the fact that there is not a lot of the word co-exist being used anywhere. There are people being killed in the street, police who will not be home with there families because of violence, soldiers over seas fighting in wars because of the fact that peace isn’t happening much of anywhere in the world.

It has been a rough year for many people all over the world and it seems that it has been a much rougher year in America than we are used to. As I sat back and thought this weekend about how rough that some people have it and I read posts on facebok stating that christ is the reason for the season and things like this I pondered,  do we all accept each other and think that just because someone else believes differently than me that I shouldn’t love them as much as someone that does believe like I do? This is a great thing to think about especially this time of year.

This is the time of year in which we should be contacting old friends, helping out those that are not as fortunate as others, people with hardships. However, when you look around there is a lot of petty fighting, tongue lashing, talking bad, not helping each other. We each have our own belief system and I assume that the reason we have those is because they work for us, in the end they have all been melted together in some way and the way I look at it is if we really are trying to do whats best then why not use what we know and what we believe to help others.

We don’t all agree all the time but learning about other civilizations and other cultures and how they do things is a great thing. They may be doing things that could be helpful in the way that we live. It is great to teach our children many ways of believing and the fact that being accepting of others is a much better way of living. If you are teaching or learning to do things that help others and stretch the love that we have for one another all over the world it can only be a good thing. So as you sit and spend the holidays with your family think about other households and just because they may believe different or been giving different teachings during this lifetime doesn’t make them a bad person and at the end of the day what they worship or believe is most likely melted together with what you know and believe. Have a happy holiday and love one another!

Thanks

As thanksgiving has arrived once again, the thoughts of another year full of new friends and new learning’s has come and gone. It is unbelievable the amount of knowledge and family love that can be shown in just one years time.

How many of us just go through our daily life and never take the time to smell the roses? Days like thanksgiving are so important for us to sit back and enjoy the small things that this short lifetime gives us to enjoy things and love each other.

The food we eat, whether turkey and ham, or tofu and rice. Do we take the time out to be thankful for it when it isn’t thanksgiving? Are the little things made important each day or do we only take time out when we are told to take one because the calendar says we should. The world is such a quick and fast placed thing and way of doing things.

Just a little time out here and there, that’s all I am suggesting. You would be amazed at the wonders that can be shown to you ever day by using a minute here and there to ring in a little bit of thankfulness. Even if you are down on your luck and you think all is gone, call a life time out and find that one good thing. You can do it. Smile, and be thankful and merry because there is good out there. -Ian

you matter

The idea of change is a very intense thought. Alot of people spend so much time complaiNing but never take the time to adjust anything to make it better. It is such a concept to spend time on. Any time that someone says there life is perfect they are probably not taking the time each day to reflect what is going on around them. I myself am spending each day to reflect on my faults while trying not to let them eat me alive. I do however have those days where I let it all eat me up and I waste a day I should be using for reflection and positivity by being depressed and moping. It isn’t to say you can’t take time to cry or be sad or whatever. It is just a situation where you really have to take a time where you don’t rely on others, you don’t worry about what people think about you, who cares. You really have to live your life as one of the role models in what I call my “new better me” life. He calls it a “you matter life”. Many times I sit and bum out. I really understand that I need to enjoy me, I am great, you are great, we are all great, and once we all realize this, just think of the level of consciousness that we can all get to. Keep being awesome, help others, take the time every day to not even worry about others. Be U 1st. Remember you live in a “you matter world”.- Ian

Finding lost things

Hello! Here we are to enjoy another week. Very often we get customers in the store asking us for ways to find something that they lost. I had begun my weekly meditation that I use when I can’t come up with an idea for a blog and hey I said to myself and my guides, let’s help people find some things that they have lost in the house or car or anywhere else they may take things. I will be going over some spells, tips, tools, fairies and even archangels to find that lost item. Hopefully by using some of these tips we can find what was lost in no time. 

Here are some spells for finding lost things, for some of them you will simply need just your intuition and maybe a small candle to use. The first spell I am going to go over this week is really simple and just needs you, a small candle, and  the direction that you feel. Get a little white candle, light it and walk around the house or wherever you are searching for the item. Say this little spell…..”I need what I seek, give me a peek, draw my eyes, towards my prize.” After doing this let your eyes move around until you get that feeling of being drawn, from there use your intuition of being drawn and head that way.  Another spell that will require a yellow candle, some lemongrass oil to anoint, and some jasmine incense. Start off by anointing the candle with lemongrass oil.(simply put some on your fingers and cover the candle in the oil before lighting it.) Burn the jasmine incense in the house. Light the candle and say this spell..”object seek, come to me, where ever you hide, i shall see, and as my word so will it be.” Close your eyes and really focus on your third eye chakra with that spell.  One more in case you didn’t like either of those. “Earth, air, water, fire. help me find what i desire. candle, cup, wind, seed, help me find what i need.” This is a strictly intuition spell, use your intuition to put a huge focus on the lost item in this one and roll where it sends you.  You can also of course use a candle or incense on that one if you wanted to help you. 

The archangel Chamuel is the archangel that you would need to communicate with as this is the archangel whom is known for finding what is lost. Leave a shiny item, even one as simple as a new penny on your alter or a space in the house and ask the fairies to help you find what you lost.   Unakite is the gemstone whose powers are for helping you finding lost items.  Also,  if you don’t have a unakite stone but you have a green stone of any kind, charge it up and ask for it to help you find the item.  Other great tools for helping you in this matter are dowsing rods, pendulums, meditation, and muscle testing. Some people have multiple pendulums for different things so maybe try using a green pendulum for this.  Dowsing rods can be made easily out of some cheap copper tubing from your local hardware store.  Some other simple ways of finding things that we may not always think of but are super simple and free. You can clean your house or simply tidy up, you never know what you may find by cleaning out your cabinets or vacuuming under the couch cushions. Ask all family members if they have seen the item. Retrace your steps. All of these are simple but hey, they may just do the trick. We would love to hear from you and hear some of the ways that you find lost things. Feel free to use the communication box below to make this blog interactive! It is way more fun when we all share our tips! Thanks so much for checking out the blog. See you soon! -Ian

Gaining wisdom with age.

Well, here we are in the second week of April, this means that I have aged another year. I must say that in the past year that I have learned more about life, things I wanted to learn I have learned, and just more about myself and who I was and maybe didn’t want to be.  I know that we always wish for things to be better, we always hope for more than we have.  

The past year has taught me to accept what I have and if I am not happy with that then get off my butt and change it.  Nothing is really set in stone and there is nothing negative that can’t be turned around.  I have spent a lot of the first 34 years of my life sitting around moping, not pushing myself to communicate when I knew that I needed to, and it would make my life much easier if I would’ve just done that.  The life that we spend on this plane is by no means easy but you have to work hard through yourself to make it as smooth as possible. 

I know that what I put myself through on a daily basis at times can be prevented by doing simple things such as clearing or meditating but I usually go the opposite path and put myself through stress, anxiety, and self doubt. It is going to be my goal in the next 34 years to make a legacy for myself, my wife, and my kids to harness good and focus on living the good life.  I am looking at things much differently after April 6th, 2014.  This was one of the best birthdays that I have ever had and I plan on each one feeling better ever year until I am no longer here.  I will focus on the great things in my life and the immense knowledge that I have been given over the past few years.  

I guess the focus of this weeks blog is that getting older makes you wiser but you have to accept it and let it come to you and not be pushy. Keep a positive outlook on things and always love yourself through the good and the bad times because they are all controllable.  Thanks for reading the blog. -Ian
