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.

Distance Healing _ Reiki for the four levels

reiki

8e731e8841424bbad09b343b0594d10e

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the basic teachings of healing with Reiki is that we are more than our physical bodies. We also have an energy body made up of our aura (energy fields), the chakras (energy centres) and the meridians (energy pathways.) Like our physical body that takes in food to nourish it and give it energy, our energy body does the same. The energy fields take energy in, the chakras break it down, and the meridians distribute it throughout the body.

 

Our body is comprised of energy vibrating at different speeds. Our physical body, our thoughts, emotions, and our spiritual centre, all vibrate at a particular frequency or speed. These varying vibrations or pulsations create a field around them which are often referred to as our aura or energy field. The aura is an information centre and a highly perceptual system that transmits and receives messages from the external and internal environment.

Each energy layer appears different and has its own individual function. Yet, they continuously interpenetrate each other as well as the physical body. These fields can be felt through touch. It is what we perceive or sense when we scan with our hands.

Energy Fields:

The Etheric Field is the first layer of our energy body and is ¼ to 2 inches from the body. It is the energy duplicate of the physical body.

The Emotional Field is where we experience feelings. It extends about 1 to 3 inches beyond the physical body.

The Mental Field is associated with thoughts and mental processes. It can be sensed 3 to 8 inches from the body.

The Spiritual Field is made up of four or more layers, which help us relate to our higher self and spiritual dimensions. It is activated when we meditate, pray or channel. It extends 6″ to 2′ beyond our physical body.

These energy fields are also referred to as our four levels of being; or our physical, mental, emotional spiritual selves.

Below are some ways to enhance the energy fields or four levels of being

 

 

First, empower your hands and chakras with the Usui power symbol. Then give yourself Reiki for 10-15 minutes.

Then invoke or visualize the distant healing symbol and say its name three times.

Visualize the person you will be sending Reiki to. Intend to send Reiki to each level of being for 10-20 minutes.
To send Reiki to their physical level of being, imagine that the Reiki enters their crown chakra. Then it goes inside their body and slowly and gently fills them up. As they become filled with Reiki energy, all of their body organs and parts are bathed in Reiki.

Then the energy begins to radiate out from their physical body. Imagine that they are glowing with healing energy. See them expanded and their first energy layer filled.
Then send Reiki to their emotional being. Imagine that they are filled with peace, joy, love, contentment and overall well being. Imagine that the glow from their physical body now extends out into their emotional level.

Next, send Reiki to their mental being. Intend that their thoughts are clear and calm. Imagine that their brain is working so that thoughts flow easily, and are well thought out, Imagine that solutions to perplexing problems come easily. Imagine that worry gently flows out of their body. As all these troubling thoughts leave their body, Reiki fills up and extends out into their mental level.

Then send Reiki to their spiritual being. Imagine that Reiki comes in and fills up and restores their spirit….their essence…their soul. Imagine it as a beautiful golden flow of energy that is a direct link to the higher realms. Imagine that guidance flows in and that they are directly connected to the source, whatever they believe that to be. Intend that the Reiki energy reconnects them to the divine within them and reignites their flame. See them filled with spiritual energy that extends out beyond all the other levels of their being.

You can also do this by having a conversation with the person before you send Reiki. You can address each level of being by asking questions before the session.

For the physical body you can ask them how they are feeling? Are they having any discomfort or pain?
For the emotional body, you can ask how they are feeling emotionally. Is there something that is making them feel happy or something that is making them feel sad?
Then ask if they have too much on their mind or are worried about something?
To address the spiritual level, ask how their spirit feels? Do they experience the sacredness of everyday life or is everyday just another day? Do they feel alone and unprotected in the world?

Before you are ready to begin sending Reiki, ask them to allow the Reiki energy to heal and address all of their levels of being. Ask them to allow themselves to receive this healing energy.

Then send Reiki for 10-20 minutes to each level of being and intend that the Reiki go to the issues, thoughts, or feelings that you discussed.

After the session is finished, let them rest. Visualize a power symbol over them and seal the session with light and love. Do dry bathing (Kenyoku) to disconnect from their energy field. Give yourself Reiki for a few minutes. You can call them afterwards to see what they experienced and share what you sensed.

Then end with gratitude for the gift of Reiki.

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.

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.

It is a bright shining light which nourishes and fills, shows the way and rests the spirit. It helps nurture your physical body and soul and also encourages you to do the same for others. With practice, using Dai Ko Myo can bring profound changes in life and make you a better person.

What we take for Granted can be taken away at any time.

I cant even imagine a day without electricity, its something we are all just used to and take for granted.  My shower in the morning, hairdryer, quick use of the straighteners, kettle on, get milk out fridge, catch up on my fave Netflix programmes, lights and well just about every minute of every day uses electricity.

When Hurricane Mariah Hit Puerto Rico, I just couldn’t imagine how they were coping, but the day the electricity came back on in the school below is just something to be shared.   How happy all these people are for getting back something which we all take for granted.

 

 

 

Pig brings lunch to his brother

I have been a vegetarian since I was about 10 years old. I just never really got the whole meat thing, never seemed right to me.  I am not a preachy veggie just a lover of animals and this next clip shows that animals not only feel pain but compassion for others too.  Animals no matter whether we class them as pets or meat are all the same, they all have feelings

Pig Brings Lunch To His Brother Who Has Trouble Walking

The Gentle Barn Tennessee shared this heartwarming video of a pig bringing lunch to his brother who can’t walk at the moment.

“When we take hay out to the pigs pasture the first thing Henry does is take some to his brother, Horton, who is not as mobile,” they wrote on Facebook. “Sharing food is true love, and Henry is the best guy!”

That’ll do pig. That’ll do.

So I am more of a dog person but I love all animals but after seeing this video I WANT A CAT….This is just the most adorable thing I have seen, cuddles from a beautiful little cat.

I am so jealous as I have a little doggie who I love very much but she just doesn’t like cuddles, its actually amusing at how awkward her eyes looks when I’m hanging off her for an extra long cuddle/headlock…  AWKS..

Police Officer Visits 93-Year-Old Who Was Burglarized, Plays His Favorite Piano Piece For Him

A police officer in the U.K. is being praised online for going above the call of duty when he serenaded a 93-year-old man with a private piano recital during a home visit after a burglary.

Video screenshot / Mansfield Police Facebook
Two Nottinghamshire officers visited the elderly man’s home in Mansfield to check on him after a burglary. One of the officers noticed a piano in the living room, with a piece of Chopin music open on its stand – the man’s favorite song.

“I told him it was my late grandma’s favourite too! I said I could play, so he invited me to play for him, which I did. It made his day, as you can see in the video you can see how much he appreciated it,” the officer wrote on Facebook.

The officer added that he achieved great “job satisfaction” after dropping in and sharing stories with the man.

“Following a theft revisit today for a ninety three year old gentleman, it truly made me feel good about myself and the job I do. He felt wanted and reassured. He was really pleased that we had checked in on him to see that he was ok. He shared stories about him ‘getting his wings’, being a pilot, the war and sadly the loss of his beloved wife on Christmas Eve a few years ago.”

 

After reading this it just makes me want to go out and do something kind for someone.  I am going to start my random acts of kindness again.

I try not to read the News, I know to a lot of people that sounds quite ignorant but I find that its all bad news and really effects me in a negative way.  So in order to raise my vibration I am sitting here reading all these beautiful stories from around the world which shows humans compassion to one another and of course my favourite, the good old soppy animal stories that cant help but lift your spirits.

Here is the story of the Therapy dog….Ahhhhhhhhhh

Therapy Dog Stuck In Traffic Jam Helps A Man Who Desperately Needed A Hug
January 31, 2018

Sherman is a 4-year-old, 230 pound Old English Mastiff who lives with his family in Longview, Washington. He’s also a therapy dog who loves to visit with anyone who could use a smile or is in need of having their spirits lifted.
Sherman focuses most of his time volunteering through pet therapy by hanging out nursing homes (mostly to flirt with the pretty ladies), rehab facilities, and spending time with hospice patients and their families.
Sherman also likes to visit elementary schools each spring to teach the little ones about dog safety.
Recently, Sherman changed a stranger’s day when a man spotted his “big ol’ head” hanging out of the car window in a traffic jam. Sherman’s owner, Sherry McAllister, shared the touching story on Facebook.

Credit: Sherman the Therapy Dog
“We were stuck in a huge traffic jam for about 15 minutes, without moving, when my phone rang. Since we obviously weren’t going anywhere, I answered. On the other end of the phone was a soft-spoken man who introduced himself as, Andy.”

“He explained he was a few cars back from us, and saw Sherman stick his big ol’ head out the window, so he called the number on our decal (we have a huge decal on three sides of the suburban with a picture of Sherman’s head, his name, and our contact number). He told us he had just returned home after a 3+ month stay in a nursing home facility. He was recovering from the most recent of multiple back surgeries.”

“It’s because of this stay in the nursing home and his failing health that he had to rehome his large breed dog. He is, sadly, unable to care for him any longer. This decision clearly broke his heart, as we could hear him choking up as he spoke. He asked if we could meet up sometime, so he could just pet Sherman. Of course, we told him we would love to set a time to meet up with him. He thanked us and we said our goodbyes, with a promise to set something up in the next few days.
As we sat there in traffic, I couldn’t get Andy’s sad voice out of my head. We decided to call him back and ask if he would like to turn off into the Wal-Mart parking lot to say, ‘Hello’ to Sherman real quick. We could hear his voice cracking over the phone when he said, ‘Yes!’.”

“When we met him in the parking lot, he slowly got out of his vehicle, using a cane. After proper introductions, we opened the side door of the suburban and told him he was welcome to sit inside the door, to visit with Sherman.”

“As soon as he sat down, Sherman came right over and started nuzzling into him. The tears started almost immediately… Andy sobbed into Sherman’s neck. Sherman just sat there, letting him hug him, hold him, and kiss him. It wasn’t long before we were all pretty teary-eyed, as he told Sherman all about his dog he had to let go.

You’re a good boy, Sherman.”xxx
