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!!!

Support yourself and others

Hey guys,

Welcome once again to this weeks blog. I have some exciting news! On May 12th, we will be starting a new group in the store. The group will be for those who have psychic abilities, questions, or just don’t have anyone to ask or talk to about things of the metaphysical nature or even things from the other side or aliens. The group will be called the psychic support group circle. It will be just five dollars and will be held in the store moving forward every 2nd and 4th Tuesday. I will be leading this circle and I am so excited and honored to be doing this.

There are so many people in the same situation that I was over 8 years ago. They are in a position of having feelings, seeing things, knowing things, but having no idea why or how those feelings came to them. I have learned a lot over the past couple of years that holding things in or not talking to anyone about what you are feeling or holding in can really hurt you physically with things like depression or anxiety.

Sometimes in life we feel like there is nobody in the world we can talk to about or issues or feelings. Sometimes we feel that there are not enough hours in the days, sometimes we feel like there are too many hours in the day and things are just swallowing us up. It is vital that we breathe and let things flow out of us and let go of all that does not serve us. It is just as important that we dwell on things that we do good or that help us out on the path that we call this lifetime.

There are too many days for all of us I am sure where we spend the entire day dwelling in negativity. Another issue that so many go through is working at a job or being in a relationship where someone is bashing us or telling us we are not good enough. The path to you being the best you ever is the one where you are acknowledged for doing good. A pat on the back is an amazing thing and the power of thank you or a smile is such a power boost of happiness for so many people. It is like that cold sip of delicious water when you are so thirsty. It really is amazing how we can raise our vibration by keeping a positive focus and helping others.

Thank you so much for reading the blog and I hope to see you all at this wonderful new group that starts May 12th. Have a great week and pat someone on the back!!

Get grounded

Hey guys, hope you all had a great weekend! We just got back late last night from Cincinnati, Ohio. We were vendors at an expo called Victory of Light. It is a really big expo with rooms of vendors and readers. The neighbors we were given at the festival were lots of fun and we really enjoyed the company that we had with them.

I had made it through the first day without many issues. By the middle of the second day I started to feel like my feet were no longer touching the floor. This is not an issue that I have ever had. I kept hearing the reader in the booth beside us offering chocolate kisses to people and telling them to eat chocolate for grounding. I had never thought of this but it seemed to work. Obviously, he was talking about grounding yourself spiritually. This was a giant building full of people doing energy work and beautiful crystals all around with energy coming off of them, An absolutely amazing atmosphere going on.

Some different feelings you may have if you need grounding are an upset stomach. Things like feeling dizzy or your ears ringing can be other things that you may feel when you have this going on. Losing track of thought over and over is another sign. I was walking around the building and really had a sense of not knowing where I was or where I was going. The lights around me seemed really bright and every noise was turned up to high volume. There were lots of people that I noticed bumping into other people or booths around the expo. I also noticed an extreme anxiousness coming onto me at all times. If you are in a situation or place with high energy all of these are signs that you are not grounded and not the fun kind like when you were a kid:)

Ways to get yourself grounded are many. Sometimes we can’t always do the things that need to be done to get ourselves back down on the ground where we want to be. As I mentioned earlier sugar is a thing that works for some people. I don’t believe it works for me as I feel ever more anxious when I eat sugar or chocolate but it sure does taste good. Doing a grounding meditation is another great way to snap out of being up too high. However, if during this exercise you find yourself not focusing or even at times falling asleep you may have to move onto something else.

A way to help you if accessible to you is to touch the ground. This should be obvious but it isn’t always something that all of us think of. When doing this you need to literally get your feet on the ground by taking off shoes and socks and get those feet firmly planted to the earth. This is usually very helpful. Mother earth will give you back the roots and the connection to being grounded.

There are also many stones that you can use to ground yourself when feeling spiritually off the floor. Also, looking into the color black is useful to clear the chakras and get you restarted. Try holding a piece of blue kyanite to get you back on track, it has always worked really good for me as far as a grounding stone. Many of the black stones such as black tourmaline also work good on clearing you out and pushing the energy away from you so that you can reground yourself. Many people use hematite jewelry such as a ring, necklace, or bracelet to get them back down.

Things like having a reiki session or tuning forks can also help you out. What ways do you use to ground and calm yourself down when you have the issues of getting too high up in areas like this or places of high energy, feel free to get interactive in the box below and join the blog! Have a great week and thanks for reading. -Ian

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

How to pick a reader?

Hey everybody, here is to hoping that you all had a great fourth of July, got to eat some great food, and spend time with loved ones. This is always one of those days of the year that I can remember hearing great stories from grandpa, my dad, or my uncles. It was always a great day of the year that I have unforgettable memories of.

This week I am going to write about something that we always get lots of questions about whether we are at the winery or we are at the store for the last Sunday of the month for a psychic fair. Which reader should I go to? There are a good amount of questions to think of before you get to that point. Do you want to communicate with relatives that have passed? Do you have jewelry that you want to know more about? Do you want to know the future? Do you have goals you are looking to achieve? This seems overwhelming but really you are spending your hard earned money so you should be sure that you are spending it in the place where you are going to get the most out of what you are looking for.

If you are looking for a way to tap into a single goal or something that is of most important in your life right at this moment. The reading that will give you reflection and focus from yourself to put you in gear you would want to get a rune reading as these will tell you exactly where you need to focus. The really neat thing about this type of reading is that if you don’t work on what you got from this reading you are very likely to get the same reading more than once. Rian is available at the store for this type of reading on Wednesdays.

Many readers use oracle or tarot cards. These cards can give you perspective on anything from love, family, health, travel, business, money, jobs prety much  whatever you may be looking for in the future. Many of these readers need to use thier intuition to gain knowledge from these cards to help you on your way to figuring out what you are looking for. A lot of tarot readers will ask you for your birthday and full name to kick off the reading. Elizabeth Howell, Mama Coco, Rev. Cynthia, Don Schilk, and Greg all use some sort of cards to give a reading. They have all been a part of our monthly psychic fairs at the store.

Psychometry is also known as token object reading. It is where you can take an object and hold it and get knowledge from that object about a person or things going on in their past or future based off of what they get from that object. Most people use jewelry for this. The reader will hold a piece of jewelry and tell you what this piece has to tell them. It can help to tell you what a relationship has to offer for you. Things from the past if the jewelry is from a deceased family member. Ernesto uses this type of reading for many of his clients. To find out Ernesto’s times in the store check out the calendar.

Some readers channel. For example, if you get a reading from Rebecca, she will give you the reading based off of what angels tell her. She channels the angels and they give her information to help you on your path, they can tell you what colors to wear or work with. They can also tell you what stones may help you. Rebecca is also in the store and can be found on the calendar.

Scrying is an old art that can be done with crystal balls, mirrors, and other items. You read what you see in the ball or mirror to tell someone a reading. It will aid in a readers clairvoyance. The reader has to also use intuition for this to work. The art of clairvoyance is a must when someone is using this as thier tool. Mama Coco is big on this tool. She also uses pendulums and angel dice and boards. These are specialized items that she has made to help her in her readings. You can get more information about Mama Coco by checking out www.3rdeyecompass.com. She also reads at the store every Monday and different days as listed on the calendar.

Astrology readers can tell you what are the best days of the year or times of the year to do certain things such as love, work, business,etc.. They base things off of when you are born. Where you are on the astrology wheel and many other factors associated with all of this. Elizabeth, Don, Ernesto, Hank  and Mama Coco can all help you with astrology related questions.

There are many types of healings that you can get done at a psychic faire too. Just a couple of them that are offered at the store are tuning forks, reiki, and IET. Lovey is available in the store Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturdays. She will channel angels for a reiki typed energy healing which will commence with a cutting of karma cords that you don’t need and aren’t of your best good. Tuning fork healing is a healing done with different sound tones given off by the forks. They are great for helping you tap into and unlocking the various chakras and unlocking them. Hank is available for this kind of healing every Thursday. Reiki is another form of energy healing done through the hands. Rebecca is available for this. We also have Sue Ball in the store to teach and attune you to be a reiki master. Check the website for more information on this.  I have written different blogs on each of these types of healings, go through the old blogs to find these.

Thanks so much for reading this blog. If you have other questions about different types of readings or what our store readers and healers have to offer type your response in the box below.  Have a great week!!

Reiki Blog

reiki

 

 

 

Last week at the store we held the final session of the class that Sue teaches about practical Reiki.  After the class was over we had a talk with all the students in the  class and we talked about putting together an interactive blog about our Reiki experiences, how Reiki makes us all feel, different ways that we do Reiki. It seemed like a great idea so hopefully we can get some interaction into the blog this week and make this work.  

First off I am assuming there are probably some people who are not really sure what Reiki is so let me explain it real quick for you all.  

Reiki was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, which has since been adapted by various teachers of many different traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands on healing as a form of alternative medicine and is sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professional medical bodies.  Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring universal energy through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.  

There are two main branches of Reiki, commonly referred to as Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki. Though differences can be wide and varied between both branches and traditions, the primary difference is that Westernised forms use systematised hand-placements rather than relying on an intuitive sense of hand-positions, which is commonly used by Japanese Reiki branches. Both branches commonly have a three-tiered hierarchy of degrees, usually referred to as the First, Second, and Master/Teacher level, all of which are associated with different skills and techniques.  We learned practical Reiki in the class we took.  

Some things that I have noticed when doing this form of Reiki is that my hands get very hot and that the healing energy seems to be very evident by the temperature of my body. I was given quite an honor during the last class by being able to attune some of the students in the class.  I could feel the healing energy flowing from my hands in this class.  I also had the honor of being the guinea pig in the second attunement of the students in the class.  I laid on a massage table and the students practiced Reiki on me. I have some issues with a few of my chakras and the students did a great job of finding those issues. This is a great way to fix and balance the chakras for meditation. I have also already began using distance healing for a few of my friends and have used Reiki on different things such as my car.  I highly recommend if you have an interest in learning Reiki and taking a really good class taught by a teacher that is very down to earth and will teach you in a way that everyone can learn in to take the class Practical Reiki taught by Sue Ball.  Sue will be returning to teach this class at Goddess Elite again in September. Be sure to check the website under our upcoming events for dates and prices. 

If you have already become a Reiki master we would love to share stories of your success with Reiki or some special techniques or great stories you may have about Reiki.  Let the interaction begin and once again thanks so much for reading the blog. -Ian
