Reaching Theta Brainwaves
Sound healing sessions with gongs bring you into a deep rest where you reach a theta brainwaves state. Theta brainwaves occur during R.E.M. sleep, active dreaming and meditation. This is a deeply relaxed state where healing takes place with more ease.
The openness of childhood
Did you grow up believing in magic, magical places, and beings?
Did the world seem like a place full of magic, wonder, a place where anything could happen, a world where anything is possible?
Ever try to capture a moment and put it in a bottle, or try to stop the seasons from changing? It just can’t be done. The simple truth is that everything of this world is subject to change. Change is the only constant. You are subject to change. Your body changes, your circumstances change. You are quite literally not the same person you were a year ago, physically, emotionally or in your life circumstances. With all this change we have the choice of moving with the flow of change or resisting it.
The seasons are shifting and more change is on the horizon. To resist change is to invite suffering, to surrender to change is to open ourselves to endless possibility.
Having a baby requires preparation. Whether it’s painting the nursery, adding extra house chores, organizing the crib, clothing, bottles, getting those doctor’s and hair appointments in, there is quite a bit of preparatory action that goes into readying oneself and family for the arrival of the new baby (or babies!).
Often we hear the expression “Home is where the heart is”. These are wise words that ring with truth. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I can’t help but wonder if we wouldn’t be better served by asking ourselves what moves our hearts?
The holiday season has become synonymous with abundance, starting with the festive meal of Thanksgiving, the many gifts of Christmas, and the lavish celebration of New Year Eve. All of these are certainly forms of abundance. But, without the abundance that resides within, all material forms that we manifest in our lives are meaningless.
Change, whether it is physical through location or state of health, emotional, mental, job related, etc., can challenge our sense of stability and connectedness. As a simple notion, change is considered growth by some and can be interpreted in a negative perspective as well. All in all change is a catalyst for the ebb and flow of life, an instrument in the natural cycle of creation and destruction.
Qi gong is roughly translated as “skill and understanding of qi through practice and work.” Qi itself is difficult to define, but can be thought of as the movement of life: from the movement of breath, to kissing a child goodnight. It is both esoteric and obvious.
I found a wonderful article about Reiki in the May 2010 issue of Body and Soul Magazine (Relief Through Reiki: Alternative Healing by Lynn Darling). It very poignantly describes the anger that a woman experiences as she undergoes radiation treatment for her breast cancer.
