PROTECT YOURSELF FROM NEGATIVE ENERGY

E N E R G Y…. Although I have been an energy healer, channeler, and Spiritual Intuitive for about 7 years now I STILL think the word “energy” sounds SO new age-ish, don’t you?  Let me simplify and demystify this simple word’s meaning, and explain what healers like myself know energy to be.



Energy = Free floating emotions and thoughts. That is way more simple than you thought it would be, right?
Now that you know this I would like to invite you to take a moment after you read this article and think back to a time when you were in a GREAT mood, TOTALLY loving life, then you walked into a house or business and immediately felt edgy, or even angry, for no reason what so ever!  It has happened to me countless times and unfortunately, before I understood “energy”, it’s effect on me, was the basis of my depression, anxiety, and several other issues I struggled though for 16 years.
In 2009 I developed the ability to SEE energy, auras, angels and spirit guides with my eyes so I became driven to understand how it all worked.  I quickly learned that my sudden mood shifts we’re caused by another person’s energy, or free floating thoughts and emotions, entering into what I call my snow globe or in other words my personal bubble and field of consciousness.  The mood shift I would experience as their energy came into my snow globe was due to my brain processing those experiences as my own.
Here’s an example: Let’s say it’s date night at the house.  All is great, but you need to run out to buy butter for the popcorn.  You happily trot on out to the store while your happy date patiently waits for you to get back. While at the store you get rung up by a lady whose spouse is FURIOUS with her!  She does not share this with you.  In fact, you hardly say a few words and then smile and wave goodbye.  Five minutes later you walk through the door of your house and you get a nagging feeling that your date is FURIOUS at you!  Your mind scans for
reasons…. Did I take too long?  Did I buy the wrong butter?  Your mind pulls up a memory of a time 5 years ago when you were late for a date and your partner at that time yelled and screamed and broke up with you.  You begin to panic!
Meanwhile, your emotions start to build into defensiveness because you know you didn’t do anything wrong!  WHY is he SO FURIOUS!?  Although you can’t seem to think of why he could be mad, your mind (usually in the background) will continue to scan for reasons as to why that cashiers energy is actually your own.   This is the “minds” job!  To process the energy that passes through “our bubble” and find a person, a place, a memory, that matches the energy it is encountering.  In this case the cashier’s energy of being in trouble with her spouse got into your field and now you are absolutely positive that without a fraction of a doubt you are in BIG BIG trouble!  You even have a SICK feeling in the pit of your stomach that you may even think it’s your intuition telling you something!!  Has anything similar EVER happened to you?
This “phenomenon” is SERIOUSLY how most fights start not only between lovers and family, but most misunderstandings in the work place revolve around messy energy and the assumptions that we allow our minds to pull from our data base of past experiences that come with it.  All it takes is one person assuming one thing based on a “gut feeling” they get about why a coworker/family member happens to be doing something and then things start to spiral out from there.
So let’s go back to the happy couple watching their movie.  If she doesn’t realize QUICKLY that she picked up the cashier’s “my husband is so mad he is going to leave me because I cheated on him” energy she will most likely give him the silent treatment all night because he is not telling her why he is REALLY mad at her and then he will turn around and assume she has done something wrong and start accusing her (out loud or with in his own mind) of things she did not do.  Do you see where I am going with this???
This can happen with ANYTHING because we are all big bubbles that I like to refer to as snow globes of emotions living our lives and most people, especially those under age 65 are empathic.  Empathic people can feel other people’s emotions and if they are not very careful they will go through life experiencing things based on emotions that are not all theirs.  I believe that mental illness, addiction, alcoholism, and most of the “disabilities” children are being labeled with these days are stemmed from the human ability to feel other’s emotions and read other’s minds while being completely unaware that we are doing so.
Starting right now if you want to see how sensitive you are to energy and you want to see how it all works I invite you to just say in your head “Higher self I ask that you stay connected to me and make me aware of the energy that should not be in my snow globe and I ask that you remove it immediately so that it does not effect me”.
Then all you have to do is notice what you notice when you go from one place to another running errands or to a friend’s house.  Also, notice how work feels when you are there alone as opposed to when certain people arrive.  Places change with the people that are in them.  If you notice that your mood changes instantly at ANYTIME and that the mood is not going away as the higher self removes the energy it may mean that you are holding onto the energy for some reason.  It is usually because the energy represents something you have personally gone through so your mind wants to solve it and therefore hangs onto it fordear life.  If this is the case rather than experiencing the emotions of that awful break up from 2005 all over again you can do the following: (at the bottom there is a video that walks you though this)
Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and say in your head: “I am a snow globe.” Imagine that you are the statue in the middle of a snow globe with snowflakes and water swirling all around you.  Feel what it feels like to be in your snow globe then say “I am alone in my snow globe, I am my creator self” and imagine a HUGE ball of bright white or golden light dropping down over you, into your snow globe, down through your head, through your body and out your feet into the center of the earth where anyone or anything that is not you and that is not in alignment with your highest self will be flushed away from you and transmuted into unconditional love using the energy of the earth and the white light above you.  This can take you 30 minutes if you want to make it a meditation or you can do it in 20 seconds when walking into the office.  The key here is the you are becoming aware of the energy around you and learning that you and only you are in control of it and if something or someone has energy around them that makes you feel badly, you can protect yourself and clear yourself regardless of the situation because you are the creator of your own reality!
Now, go about your day and maybe just maybe this week you can make it through with out any arguments or mood swings. haha!  YEAH right, huh?  But hey, let’s give it a shot anyway!

25 Life Changing Lessons to Learn from Buddha

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” 
~ Buddha

There are so many beautiful, powerful and life changing lessons I have learned from studying Buddhism and from reading many of Buddha’s quotes. And today I want to share 25 of these beautiful lessons with you.

Here are 25 Life Changing Lessons from Buddha:

1. Love heals all things.

“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.” ~ Buddha

2. It’s not what you say but what you do that defines you.

“A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.” ~ Buddha
“A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”

3. The secret of good health is to live fully in the NOW.

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~ Buddha
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

4. Who looks inside awakens.

“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.” ~ Buddha

5. Words have the power to both hurt and heal.

“Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.” ~ Buddha

6. Let it go and it will be yours forever.

“You only lose what you cling to.”

7. No one can walk your path for you.

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” ~ Buddha

8. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

9. Be kind to all.

“Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.” ~ Buddha
“Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.”
“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

10. Don’t believe everything you are told to believe.

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ~ Buddha

11. As you THINK so shall you be

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon…. If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”

12. Let go of fear.

“The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.”

13. The truth has a way of always leaking out.

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

14. Control your mind or it will control you.

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”
“It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.”

15. Doubt separates. Trust unites.

“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.”

16. Nobody is more deserving of your love than you yourself are.

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

17. Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.”

18. Spirituality isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.

“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.”

19. Replace jealousy with admiration.

“Do not be jealous of others’ good qualities, but out of admiration adopt them yourself.”

20. Look for peace within yourself.

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”

21. Let go of attachment.

“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”

22. Choose your friends wisely.

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.”

23. There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.

“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.”

24. Give up labels.

“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”

25. Love. Live. Let go.

“In the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?”
~love, Luminita💫

3 STEPS TO BECOMING THE TRUE MASTER OF YOUR LIFE

Are you aware you are a magnificent multidimensional being of light compressed into this physical form to help raise the consciousness of the collective and share your truest nature, your Essence, with the world?
Your deepest light Essence is held within an ethereal womb located in your lower abdomen – what we call in Traditional Chinese Medicine the lower ‘Dan Tian’. The lower Dan Tian is an energy center that lies at the very roots of your life and forms the foundation for your earthly existence. It is the center that holds your Jing, which the ancient Chinese referred to as ‘Essence’.
The quality and quantity of your Essence is determined at the time of conception when the Essence of your mother combines with that of your father. At this point the heavenly influences from the stars and planets make their imprint; all this combined creates a blueprint which you carry throughout your entire life. This sacred blueprint determines your vitality, personality and ancestral karma; it is who you are in this lifetime, which signifies the deep sacredness of this Essence. 
Buddha image
Over the course of your life your Essence steadily diminishes. When it is all used up it signals the end of this earthly life and your spirit will leave your body, since this sacred substance serves as an ethereal anchor to hold your Spirit in your body. Modern day living is not designed to honour and nourish your vitality. Your diet and lifestyle, but most of all the state of your consciousness, greatly influence the quality and quantity of your Essence.
In order to live a healthy, vital and fully empowered life and step into your magnificence it is essential for you to understand how to nourish your Essence, which is an ancient and almost forgotten sacred art. The art of nourishing this sacred substance is to build it up to a point of absolute abundance that it naturally spills over into the collective to help heal it. The mark of a well-nourished self is the ability to nourish others.
So how do you build and nourish your Essence, because the world needs you to be your most empowered and magnificent self?
The first signs of being out of touch with your Essence are: a constant tiredness that actually gets worse when you rest; feeling lost and empty, with no sense of direction in life; a strong lack of sense of self with no clear definition of who you are; and feeling ungrounded all the time.
If you can identify with any of this symptoms than you have been living a life with no real integrity towards yourself. It is highly likely that you are a highly sensitive being, with a strong sense of empathy. You are likely to be there more for others than yourself and you find it hard to feel into your own needs, desires and pleasures.
There are three essential steps you can take to bring yourself back to yourself and step fully into the magnificent light that you are.
Step one: Break the paradigm of not feeling good enough to receive pleasure in life. Serving others is not about suffering or sacrificing yourself. It is important to understand that you are only really capable of helping and supporting others when you are fully replenished and full of light again. Every act of self-sacrifice actually depletes your Essence directly as you are literally giving yourself away to others. Stop this and learn to keep your Essence for yourself, trusting that it will naturally spill over to support others when the time is right.
Step two: Learn to take space for yourself at the right time. This is not a selfish act but it is a sacred act for the Self. Being a highly sensitive being it is very likely for you to pick up on the thoughts, feelings and emotions of others and then carry them throughout your daily life. When this happens your Emotional Digestive System becomes overwhelmed and starts to affect your physical digestive system. You take in too many impulses without taking the time to properly digest them – similar to eating while you are running.
When you take personal space, or even better, when you do a meditation practice, you take the time to digest these impulses you have received and held throughout your day. The main sign to know when you need personal space is when you start to feel agitated. If you want to learn more about the Emotional Digestive System and how it directly relates to your Essence read my article on this fascinating subject.
Step three: Build your Essence through a simple and very effective technique called Dan Tian Breathing. The theory behind Dan Tian Breathing is vast – read my article on this ancient and profound technique.
Your Essence can be seen as an ethereal anchor to help hold your spirit in your body. Your spirit is made out of the most ethereal substance and without a proper anchor it leaves the body. This is how we feel scattered and ungrounded all the time, because we are literally not fully in our body. By building up your Essence you actually ground and collect the scattered parts of your consciousness, which will make you feel much more embodied.
All of this is an art and takes practice to integrate it into your everyday routine, but by using these steps you will make rapid improvement in the overall quality of your life. You will feel more vital, empowered and embodied: an even better version of yourself. Don’t forget that your Essence is not something you step into, but simple relax and surrender into.

What Exactly Is Nirvana?

“One thing and only one thing do I teach, suffering and the cessation of suffering” – Buddha
‘Nirvana’ is one of the most widely used Buddhist words in the world. And while many in the east have a pretty good grasp on what it means, most people in the west have little to no idea what it means at all.
In fact, they largely think it’s the name of the 90’s grunge band! Fantastic band…but…no. Nirvana is the central tenet of Buddhism, the ‘hub’ that holds this powerful and ancient philosophy together.

Liberation

In his first sermon after his enlightenment, the Buddha preached the Four Noble Truths. Very basically, the Truths explain why life stresses and disappoints us, and why we are stuck and struggling like a ‘flame stuck to fuel’. The Buddha also gave us the remedy, and the path to liberation, which is the Eightfold Path.
Nirvana, then, is liberation; it’s the removal of the flame (our essence) from the fuel source (suffering).
But liberation from what?
The answer is “samsara,” which usually is defined as the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. This is the endless cycle of suffering we are all consciously or unconsciously trying to move away from. Buddha’s teachings are not so much a belief system as it is a practice that enables us to stop hitting the walls of a confined existence.

What Happens Next?

So, once we’re liberated, what happens next? First and foremost, Buddha never defined nirvana as a place; rather, it’s a state of existence.
What Exactly Is Nirvana?

Buddha also said that anything we might say or imagine about nirvana will be wrong because it is so completely different from our ordinary existence. For this reason, it also defies definition, because language is inadequate to define it. Nirvana is beyond space, time, and definition. Pretty crazy right???
The Theravadin scholar Thanissaro Bhikkhu said, “… neither samsara nor nirvana is a place. Samsara is a process of creating places, even whole worlds, (this is called becoming) and then wandering through them (this is called birth). Nirvana is the end of this process.”
So in other words, it’s a return to our natural state of being.

How do We get There?

The path laid out by Buddha is relatively simple, but profound. By following the Eightfold Path with deep meditation, nirvana can come to you while living. This is the promise of Buddha’s teachings.
And while the path isn’t necessarily easy, it’s certainly rewarding — not just for yourself, but others as well.

This Is What Happens To Your Body After Drinking 1 Cup of Coffee

Few can resist a cup of java in the morning. Here's a breakdown of what happens to your body from 10 minutes to 6 hours after drinking the brewed beverage.

The rich and robust flavor of coffee is what compels many people to drink it on the daily; that, and the boost of energy obtained from its caffeine content. But have you ever pondered what exactly happens to your body after consuming a cup of the brewed beverage?

Conflicting studies abound on the pros and cons of drinking coffee. Does it tax the adrenals and increase cortisol (stress hormone)? Or does it reduce appetite and improve focus? Is it beneficial for diabetics? Or does it raise blood sugar and contribute to weight gain?
If you’re conflicted on whether or not you should consume the drink, you’re not alone. 

Fortunately, some new research has surfaced that hints at the benefits of drinking the beverage. Obviously, consuming coffee in excess is not good for the body; but a cup now and again may actually offer some benefits.


Following is a breakdown of what happens to your body from 10 minutes to 6 hours after drinking coffee, courtesy of David Wolfe: 

10 Minutes

Shortly after your first sip, caffeine from the beverage enters your bloodstream. This causes a spike in heart rate, blood pressure, and energy. Intriguingly, this effect is most pronounced in men, according to researchers at the University of Barcelona.

20 Minutes

Twenty minutes after drinking coffee, you’re likely feeling pretty good. This is because caffeine begins to affect your adenosine levels. The neurotransmitter is responsible for telling your body when it’s time for bed; caffeine binds to the brain’s adenosine receptors and shuts them off. That’s why drinking coffee before bedtime is not a good idea. You’ll be up until the wee hours of the morning.

Another effect of caffeine binding to adenosine receptors is that it allows the brain’s stimulants, dopamine and glutamine, to release their neurotransmitters. This is why after twenty minutes, you tend to feel very perky and awake.

30 Minutes

It’s been a half an hour since you consumed your coffee. At this point, your body has begun producing adrenaline, which further increases your energy production. An effect of an increase in adrenaline is that your air passage will dilate and blood flow will increase to muscles.

It’s for this reason that athletes tend to consume coffee as a pre-workout aid; it helps them perform better in the gym and focus harder on the workouts they engage in.

40 Minutes

It’s been ten minutes since the body began producing adrenaline. Now, one’s mood will become elevated because the brain becomes more sensitive to serotonin – a neurotransmitter responsible for mood regulation.

An individual who does not define themselves as a morning person usually perks up after consuming their morning cup of java, and this is why.

60 Minutes

One hour after consuming a cup of coffee, there should be a noticeable difference in anxiety levels. According to Dr. Owen Bain, this is because caffeine continues to further increase one’s dopamine levels, resulting in feelings of contentment. In today’s busy world, no wonder so many people are addicted to coffee!

3 Hours

Approximately three hours after drinking a cup of coffee, one will notice that their levels of energy tend to diminish. This is because the effect caffeine was causing is beginning to wane. Says Dr. Baine:

“This is because the caffeine in coffee doesn’t actually make you more energetic, it just makes you less able to feel that you’re tired.”

Indeed, the effect caffeine has on the body can be likened to the effect a whip has on a racehorse. Caffeine increases adrenaline levels, which propels the body to work faster and be more focused; but as is the case with the racehorse, it doesn’t actually create more energy, it just induces a reaction.

6 Hours

Though you may no longer feel the effects of drinking coffee six hours after doing so, your body hasn’t stopped processing it. Reportedly, caffeine begins to act as a diuretic at this point, encouraging the kidneys to produce urine and remove toxins from the body.

Because coffee is an acidic beverage, one would do well to consume more water – specifically structured and alkaline – when they drink coffee during the day. This will prevent one from becoming dehydrated.

You Want To Quit Smoking? Use This Herb And It Will Destroy Your Desire For Nicotine

Smoking is a detrimental habit but this does not prevent people from smoking. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance which makes people crave for it, and the more they smoke, the more they need it.

When smokers do not take nicotine, they feel great discomfort, which is a manifestation of the withdrawal phase. The physical symptoms will stop in a week, but the cravings need more time.


Yet, a recent German study showed that Stevia can be of great help in the avoidance of alcohol and cigarettes. This plant is a member of the chrysanthemum family and is native to Paraguay. It has been used as a sweetener for long. Stevia inhibits the cravings and the signals the brain sends.

Therefore, if you are struggling to give up smoking, you should start consuming a few drops of Stevia daily.

When you experience a craving stroke, drop them directly on the tongue, and they will fight the cravings right away. Stevia can be used in the form of liquid and powder, and you can purchase it from healthy food stores, and supermarkets.

Stevia is highly beneficial in the case of hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. It nourishes the skin and tightens it, treats acne, and fights dermatitis.

You Want To Quit Smoking? Use This Herb And It Will Destroy Your Desire For Nicotine


This is how to grow it at home:

It cannot survive in freezing conditions as it likes warm temperatures and the sun. Its root survives in zones 9 and warmer and might grow again in spring.

If well protected, it can also survive in zone 8. Plant the Stevia in 12-inch containers, with high-quality soil. Place them to be exposed to direct sunlight and water it when the soil is dry.

Leave the plant to have a space of 18 inches, in a well-drained, loamy, and loose soil. It might reach a height of 1-3 feet. Plant it after the end of the frost, and use nice compost.

To prevent drying, use mulch in the summer. Do not use soggy soil, and make sure it has a good drainage. Note that the roots are rotten or attacked by insects if the plant wilts.

Trim off the flowers in fall, as it blooms then, in order to stimulate the growth of new leaves. The flowers are white, and to help the plant release more leaves, clip off the blooms. On the other hand, the leaves are the sweetest in autumn, before it starts blooming.

When the leaves are plucked, dry them to be able to use them longer. Cut off the stems, and eliminate the leaves and tender stems. Scatter it on woven fabric or some non-metal surface, and dry the leaves in the sun.

This process lasts for a day, and you should then collect them and place them in a container. Crush the leaves and make a powder.

Pour the powder into airtight containers, and add it to your foods and drinks to sweeten them.
