Imagination is more Important than Knowledge

Inspiring people, The mind

As someone who practices energy healing and meditation I am very drawn to Albert Einsten and all that he discovered in his lifetime.  I love how he believed that the imagination is by far more important in this life than knowledge.  In healing we use our imagination greatly and what we focus our attention on in our life is what shall show up.

Albert Einstein was one of the most brilliant minds that ever lived. Not only was he an outstanding scientist who revolutionized physics in a fundamental way, but he was also an influential speaker on education, social justice, and religion. He was a scientist who believed in the power of imagination and creativity, and who considered that education is a personal quest that should never end.

 

Let’s take a glimpse into Albert Einstein’s mind through some of his most popular quotes. His words on success, love, and justice can inspire us to live happy and meaningful lives.

1. On the Power of Imagination

Imagination is more important than knowledge. ~ Albert Einstein
Knowledge is a map that guides us while imagination is the territory where we can roam freely and search for answers and opportunities. Imagination knows no restraint and it is the power that puts knowledge to use.

2. On Nature and Knowledge

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. ~ Albert Einstein

Everything around us is governed by logical, complex laws which we can discover once we pay enough attention. Deep into nature, we find beauty, order, and harmony, and we find that everything is connected.

3. On Success and Value

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. ~ Albert Einstein
Success is not always correlated with value. To be a man of success often means playing by certain rules of society, not necessarily bringing real value. A man of value does not seek praise or admiration, and it is not interested in being seen as successful because he knows his real value.

4. On Education

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. ~ Albert Einstein
Most people think education stops at graduation. The truth is that real education has little to do with schooling. Once we get into the real world, we discover how little we know. Outside the school gates, we find thatwe have weaknesses which only experience and further learning can cover.

5. On Change

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ~ Albert Einstein
People are victims of comforts and routine. We do the same things every day, yet expect great changes in our lives. A great change starts, however, with a small step in a new direction. When we gather the courage to act with greatness, we can expect great things to happen.

6. On Moving On

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. ~ Albert Einstein
Life is not always good to us. Every one of us experiences at some point feelings of sadness, distress, or disappointment. The real challenge is to move past these feelings and focus on the empty canvas that lies ahead.

7. On Logic and Imagination

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. ~ Albert Einstein
Logic and imagination don’t have to compete with each other. They both have their own purpose. Imagination is all about possibilities and opportunities, while logic is about turning possibilities into actual plans and real projects.

8. On Experience

The only source of knowledge is experience. ~ Albert Einstein
Most of the today’s learning means sharing information and theoretical knowledge. This is rarely the type of knowledge that can be applied in our day to day circumstances. Experience is the actual powerful knowledge that can give us control over our future.

9. On Respect for Truth

Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. ~ Albert Einstein
Acting with thoughtless obedience towards authority does not mean respecting authority. Even people with authority are prone to mistakes. It is our duty to question everything that does not follow the principles of justice, truth, and kindness.

10. On Living in the Moment

A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future. ~ Albert Einstein
Worrying about future is a symptom of a miserable present, in which we cannot find peace or fulfillment. A happy person lives in the moment, free from the ties of the past or those of the future.

Lee Harris Energy Tips for a HeartFelt Life

Inspiring people, mind hacking, The mind

I’ve recently found this guy called Lee Harris Energy Intuitive healer and speaker.  On my nightly watch on Gaia.com I came across an interview with him and Regina.

So I have researched and listened to tonnes of his youtube videos and been using his tools in my daily practice and within my life.  I would like to share with you some of the tips I have taken from what he lives and breathes.

untitled

Lee Harris and his channeling seek to remind that when you live from your heart, your instinct is allowed to begin guiding you, rather than your mind. The human mind can easily become weighed down with beliefs that are not your own, and ways of being that have simply become habit, rather than your truth. To be living from your heart and your intuition, without limitation, is to bring bliss and abundance back into your life and the lives of those around you. Lee works with his Spirit Guides to bring this message through his channeling.

  1. After listening to a whole variety of spiritual teachers, scientists and self help gurus I find one thing is always prevalent in their teachings and that is that Our Heart is much more important than we once thought.  Quieting the mind and really focus our energy on our heart centre and feeling love and gratitude for our lifes.

2) Your role as human is to be human and to let the spirit and the light come through you as much as you possibly can.

And yet this also means you let the core of humanity and all of its collective ideals, failures, tragedies, joys, areas of greatness and areas of weakness, run through your system because you are a product of ancient history.

But you are also the future – and to those 200 years from now, you will be part of their ancient history. So it is a continuum.

3)  To be overwhelmed should not be seen as a failing.

To master overwhelm should not be seen as an achievement. Instead it is a moment in time, meaning as you grow and change and the world around you grows and changes, that moment in time is going to continually expand.

People around you will continually expand and you yourself will have to find anew your position, your centre, every single day.

So take that in for a moment – this idea that you aren’t getting anything wrong – you are simply on a rapidly expanding planet that you couldn’t possibly understand with your mind.

That’s not because you don’t have a mind that can comprehend everything and that is a failing. It is that you have a mind that can’t comprehend what is going on because the mind tracks history, and change is hitting all of you at an unprecedented rate.

4)  Silent awareness will be your ally in these golden years, for the human world has been hyper-doing and hyper-externalized.

In an age where the internal is becoming as valued and as powerful as the external, the internal will be one of the safest places to be in the coming few decades as the Earth goes through so many changes.

You will have to come back to the voice of your soul to know what the new road map is for this planet.

Lets Rewrite our Subconcious Mind

mind hacking, The mind

After listening to and reading a tonne of books on this subject I realised that you can have all the knowledge in the world but if we don’t practice then it’s not of much use.

Daily Practice in anything is the way to programme our subconscious brain.

I learned the times table at school by constantly repeating these daily so they are stored into my computer brain.  I also learned all the words to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air over 18 years ago and wow it’s still in there along with so much more useless information.  I can drive a car without thinking about it, oh and I can ride a bike too.  So if all this information has been stored  into the computer brain then what else is in there.  There is lots of limiting beliefs and negative emotions which has been stored.

Look at your day and see what you have programmed into your day.

  1. Getting kids ready and out the door for school.  Do you programme that your going to be stressed, rushed and loose your patience and kids will have melt downs.  This was my life until I realised it didn’t have to be.  Okay so every day is not a walk in the park but when I realise I slip into panic mode about being late I take a few breaths have a word with myself and we get there, we are always early so my panicking is just using up my energy and giving my kids a horrible start to the day.  Each day I practice having more patience and my children are my greatest teachers.
  2. Eating healthy  and exercising – but eating a cake is just so much more satisfying.  Yet the guilt after it is just not worth those ten minutes of pleasure yet I do it anyway and then my negative self talk about how I never stick to anything, I shall always be fat and how everyone is better at it than me.  Spiralling negative self talk leads to low mood and energy been drained from our bodies.  So I realise that I either eat the cake, enjoy it and don’t regret it, stop the thoughts in motion.  Or I lay off the cake and feel absolutely empowered at how strong I am.  If I keep on saying no to the Cake I get stronger and stronger.  (I love a chocolate cake)  This one I am working on..
  3. My night-time sleep can be amazing when I meditate but if I miss a few days than wow its back to being rubbish.  (programme)
  4. Eating 3 meals a day (programmed from generations)
  5. Save up for your retirement then have a life (Programmes)

This list can go on and on – Write down your daily programmes by becoming aware of your thoughts and your behaviour.  It can be very interesting to see what your programming is and where it has come from.

Lets Change it but How?

1. Trust your subconscious mind, recognise and become aware of your fears and habits

2.  Interview your subconscious

3. Make a promise, set the intention to work with your subconscious.

4.  Get examples – Douse your subconscious in positive case studies in the programme that you want to achieve..  Your subconscious will do anything you say is possible.

5.  Ingrain this new power into your subconscious.

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat.

Make it happen faster by putting a strong emotion behind it.

Change your physiology

Visualise again and again the new you as if you already have achieved it.

I set a reminder every hour on my phone when I have a programme that I want to pop into my subconscious goals

 

 

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen – Distance Symbol

reiki

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen

hon

(Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen is pronounced as: “Hon-Sha-Zee-Show-Nen”)
The symbol has a general meaning of: “No past, no present, no future” or it can have the meaning of “The Buddha in me contacts the Buddha in you”.

The Distance symbol can, as its name implies, be used to send energies over a distance. Time and distance is no problem when using this Reiki symbol. Many practitioners consider Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen as the most useful and powerful symbol. The use of the symbol gives access to the “Akashic Records”, the life records of each soul and can therefore be used in karmic healing. Trauma and other experiences from this life, previous or parallel lives that affect and mirror peoples’ behaviors can be brought to light and released.

How to Send Distance Healing Reiki Using Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen

There are many ways to send Reiki, and different Masters might use different techniques. A lot of practitioners learn one technique, which they then tweak and personalize it to suite their style. The steps below describe one technique which many people find effective.

Step 1: Activate the power symbol.

Step 2: Write the name of the recipient or the situation you are sending energy to on a piece of paper and hold the paper in between your hands.

Step 3: Draw the symbol Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen in the air above the paper and repeat its name three times.

Step 4: Repeat the name of the recipient or the situation.Draw the power symbol.

Step 5: Allow Reiki to flow to the recipient for the greatest and highest good.

Step 6: Finish the Reiki session by either clapping your hands or shaking them vigorously in order to cut the connection.

An alternative way of distant healing is to either use their photograph or use a proxy ( a soft toy or any object) instead of writing their name on a piece of paper.

Benefits of Distance Healing

One of the greatest benefits of receiving Reiki energy through Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen is the fact that it allows you to receive positive energy just anywhere and everywhere in a quick and easy manner. To receive distant healing treatment, you do not have to spend extra time or go anywhere to receive Reiki treatment.

Distance healing treatment also proves to be a perfect tool for all those people who find it uncomfortable to receive hands on Reiki treatment.  Reiki distance healing symbol can be used regularly to help keep your mind, body and spirit in harmon. However, it is important to remember that one of the most significant things in distant healing is the intention of the Reiki practitioner. Thus, formulating the intentions carefully and using the Reiki distance healing symbol to transmit energies only for the highest good, whatever that is and whether it is known to us or not, can go a long way in producing positive results.

In doing distance healing be open! Do not focus your efforts on healing a specific problem like a headache. Send the Reiki energies without limitation as they will go where they are best needed. When doing distance healing the energies will work on the receiver’s subtile body, the Chakras and the Aura, and not as much on the physical level (i.e. it can take some time before the energies seep down to the body and eases for instance pain).

The person you are sending Reiki to is likely to feel it happening. If he/she has an open mind he/she can usually tell what you have done and when you have done it.
Distance healing does not take nearly as long as a hands-on treatment. You actually only need a few minutes to send distance healing. You can even set up a Reiki distance healing to automatically repeat sending energies to a person. If you want to do this I recommend that you put a time limit on the repeat (as it otherwise might continue forever) and also to renew and empower the distance healing every other day. Remember it is your intention that guides what happens!

Dai Ko Myo – Master Symbol

reiki

The Dai Ko Myo in Usui Reiki is known as the “Master” symbol. It is one of the most powerful symbols in Reiki that can be used only by Reiki Masters. The power of the Reiki Master symbol combines the power of the first three symbols, Cho Ku Rei, Sei He Ki and Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen.

The Dai Ko Myo is the symbol with the highest vibration and is therefore most transformative at the spiritual level. Using this symbol helps enhance the healing of the soul as the energies are sent to the more subtle layers of the aura and upper chakras.

When the spiritual soul is healed, the mental and physical get healed automatically.
The Dai Ko Myo symbol also helps heal our karma. Also known as “all purpose healing” symbol and “empowerment” symbol, this Reiki symbol represents all that is Reiki, including personal empowerment and love.

What does Dai Ko Myo mean?
When the individual symbols of the Reiki mater symbol are translated, it symbolizes the energy it carries. While “Dai” means great or big and “Ko” means smooth or glossy, the word “Myo” means bright light. The Dai Ko Myo basically means “Great Enlightenment” or “Bright Shining Light”. This Reiki symbol represents inner knowledge, truth and enlightenment.

 

The Dai Ko Myo symbol reconnects us to the divinity that is inherit within all and helps us heal ourselves and others. Once attuned to the symbol, it is highly recommended that you use the symbol with all your Reiki works. This will allow your energy to receive an extra boost and help you draw strong energy constantly through your energetic system.

 

Methods to activating the Dai Ko Myo symbol

The symbol can be activated in many ways, including but not limited to:

Where to apply Dai Ko Myo symbol during healing?
Using the Reiki master symbol enhances the healing effects of every form of Reiki healing. The symbol is usually used with every Reiki healing whether individual or group, hands-on or distant or when aimed at an individual, thing or situation.

To apply the symbol during a Reiki healing session, first draw the Reiki symbol on your own palms or hands and then visualize or redraw the symbol on the crown chakra and the palms or hands of the client and the area to be treated.

Helpful Responses To An Initial Awakening — The Kundalini Guide

The mind

http://www.kundaliniguide.com/help-for-initial-awakening/

After practicing kundalini this week I started noticing for the last three nights I would wake at 4 am and feel like I should get up, but last night I woke every hour. I did a bedtime kundalini routine this time instead of my usual morning one. I have had the most vivid dreams each night. I practiced kundalini last year and stopped to switch to Yin yoga and pilates as I had read far too much on kundalini energy and freaked myself out. Something keeps drawing me back to this energy, I don’t want to be scared of it but this time I am going to trust in it and know that it is for my highest good. Unless of course I can’t get my sleeping pattern back, then I may have to scream (dramatic Ahhhhhhhhhhh)

I would love to know of any others positive stories about kundalini energy or if you have had any side effects from this that you worked through.

Thank you kindly

Namaste

Script for BodyScan Meditation

meditation

Guided Body Scan

This guided body scan meditation is intended to help you enter a very deep state of relaxation. It is best if you can manage to stay awake throughout the entire exercise. It’s important to remember to not try to relax. This will just create tension. What you’ll be doing instead is becoming aware of each passing moment and just accepting what is happening within you, seeing it as it is. Let go of the tendency of wanting things to be different from how they are now and allow things to be exactly as you find them. Just watch the activity of your mind, letting go of judgmental and critical thoughts when they arise, and just doing what the exercise guides you to do as best you can.
Lie down in a warm and private place, dressed in loose and comfortable clothing at a time when you will not be interrupted. Closing your eyes, and letting your arms lie alongside your body, your feet falling away from each other and slowly bringing your attention to the fact that you are breathing. Not trying to control your breath in any way but simply experiencing it as the air moves in and out of your body and noticing your abdomen and feeling the sensations there as your breath comes into your body and your abdomen gently expands. Then noticing your belly deflate as the breath comes out of your body. And following the rhythmic movement of each breath…the rising of your belly on the inbreath and on each outbreath just letting go, letting your body become heavy as it sinks a little bit deeper into relaxation. Just bringing full attention to each breath in each moment.
Now bringing your attention to your feet, becoming aware of whatever sensations are there. If you are registering a blank as you tune in, then just experiencing nothing. And as you breathe in, imagine your breath moving all the way down to your feet and then when you reach your feet, begin your outbreath and let it move all the way up your body and out your nose. So that you’re breathing in from your nose and breathing out from your feet. And when you are ready, letting your feet dissolve in your mind’s eye. Become aware of the shins and calf muscles and the sensations in the lower legs, not just on the surface but right down into the bones, experiencing and accepting what you feel here and breathing into it, then breathing out from it. Then letting go of your lower legs as you relax into the bed or mat. And moving now into the thighs and if there’s any tension just noticing that. Breathing into and out from the thighs. Then letting your thighs dissolve and relax.
Shift your attention to your pelvis now. From one hip to the other. Noticing your buttocks in contact with the bed or the mat. And the sensations of contact and of weight. Becoming aware of the region of the genitals. And whatever sensations or lack of sensations you are experiencing. And directing your breath down into your pelvis, breathing with the entirety of your pelvis. And as you breath out, moving the breath back up through your body and out your nose, letting your pelvis soften and release all tension as you sink even deeper into a state of relaxed awareness and stillness. Totally present in each moment. Content to just be, and to just be right here as you are right now. Direct your attention now to your lower back. And just experiencing your back as it is. Letting your breath penetrate and move into every part of your lower back on the in-breath. And on the out-breath, just letting any tension, any tightness, any holding on just flow out as much as it will. And then letting go of your lower back. And moving up into your upper back now. Just feeling the sensations in your upper back. You may even feel your ribcage, in back as well as in front, expand on the in-breath. And any tightness, fatigue or discomfort in this part of your body, just letting them dissolve and move out with the outbreath as you let go and sink even deeper into stillness and relaxation.
And now shifting your attention to your belly again and experiencing the rising and falling of your belly as you breathe. Feeling the movements of your diaphragm, that umbrella-like muscle that separates your belly from your chest. And experiencing the chest as it expands on the in-breath and deflates on the out-breath. And if you can, tune into the rhythmic beating of your heart within your chest. Feeling it if you can. As well as the lungs expanding on either side of your heart. Just experiencing your chest, your belly, as you lie here…the muscles on the chest wall, the breasts, the entirety of the front of your body. And now just letting this region dissolve into relaxation as well.
Moving your attention now to your fingertips and to both hands together, just becoming aware of the sensations now in the tips of your fingers and thumbs where you may feel some pulsations from the blood flow, a dampness or a warmth or whatever you feel. Just feeling your fingers. And expand your awareness to include the palms of your hands and the backs of your hands and your wrists. And here again perhaps picking up the pulsations of the arteries in your wrists as the blood flows to and from your hands. And becoming aware as well of the forearms. And the elbows. Any and all sensations regardless of what they are. Allowing the field of your awareness to include now the upper arms. Right up to your shoulders. Just experiencing your shoulders and if there are any tensions, breathing into your shoulders and arms. And letting that tension dissolve as you breathe out. Letting go of the tension and letting go of your arms. All the way from your fingertips, right through to your shoulders. As you sink even deeper into a state of relaxed awareness. Just being present in each moment. Letting go of whatever thoughts come up or whatever impulses to move and just experiencing yourself in this moment.
And now focus your attention on your neck and throat and feel this part of your body, experiencing what it feels like perhaps when you swallow and when you breathe. And then letting it go. Letting it relax and dissolve in your mind’s eye. Becoming aware of your face now. Focusing on the jaw and the chin, just experiencing them as they are.
Becoming aware of your lips and your mouth. And becoming aware of your cheeks now…and your nose, feeling the breath as it moves in and out at the nostrils. And be aware of your eyes. And the entire region around your eyes and eyelids. And if there’s any tension, letting it leave as the breath leaves. And now the forehead, letting it soften to let go of stored emotions. And the temples. And if you sense any emotion associated with the tension or feelings in your face, just being aware of that. Breathing in and letting the face dissolve into relaxation and stillness. And now become aware of your ears, and back and top of your head. Now letting your whole face and head relax. For now, just letting it be as it is. Letting it be still and neutral. Relaxed and at peace.
Now letting your breath move through your entire body in whatever way feels natural for you. Through the entire length of your body. All of your muscles in a deep state of relaxation. And your mind simply aware of this energy, of this flow of breath. Experiencing your entire body breathing. Sinking deeper and deeper into a state of stillness and deep relaxation. Allow yourself to feel whole. In touch with your essential self in a realm of silence, of stillness, of peace. And seeing that this stillness is in itself healing. And allowing the world to be as it is beyond your personal fears and concerns. Beyond the tendencies of your mind to want everything to be a certain way. Seeing yourself as complete right now as you are. As totally awake right now.
As the exercise ends, bring your awareness back to your body again, feeling the whole of it. You may want to wiggle your toes and fingers. Allow this calmness and this centeredness to remain with you when you move. Congratulate yourself on having taken the time to nourish yourself in this way. And remember that this state of relaxation and clarity is accessible to you by simply paying attention to your breath in any moment, no matter what’s happening in your day. Let your breath be a source of constant strength and energy for you.
