What is a Visual Meditation? Will I be watching someone meditate? Is there going to be lovely vistas to lull me into a calmer state? These may be some of your questions, so I’m going to fill you in not only on what it is, but how it came to be!

Visual Meditation is a brand new (I think) form of meditating. If you have ever heard of or experienced automatic writing, that’s how this came to me but in abstract watercolor images instead of words.

I had an urge from spirit telling me to set up 10 pieces of watercolor paper taped to boards all around the table with my paints, water, spray bottle, flow medium, and my biggest brushes. I had no idea what was coming, but I had the time, so I followed directions and got everything ready.

Half way done!

Once I was set up I took a deep breath, fully connected to spirit, let go of control, and let the fun begin! In just a little over an hour I had 10 paintings completed!! It was clear to me that they were in order, so I took photos to remember their order.

Final one complete, bottom right, still wet!

Next, I shared them with a few close friends and received a little feedback on them. We understood that each image carried its own energetic vibration and together they provoked a sense of calm, peace, and clarity.

The next step was putting them into a powerpoint presentation each with a few words to guide the experience. I added music to one version, and finally a guided meditation to another. Both of those versions are offered here for free.

The combination of the energetic vibration of the images, soothing music, and guided meditation bring you quickly to a place of peacefulness. Each image will soon have its own individual meditation, and a Peace Journal with the whole series of images plus journal prompts is now available too!

Healer Heal Thyself

Healer, Heal Thyself

IMAGE POSTED ON UPDATED ON
Many of us have heard this phrase, but how often do we actually listen? In today’s world of “there is so much to do” how many of you actually take the time to sink down into your own body, into your own consciousness, and just listen? I bet it’s been a long time huh?  How many practitioners out there rave about meditation and connection and source and unplugging and yet run around in their day-to-day without taking a minute to feed their own soul or remember their own connections? Sometimes it’s difficult to practice what you preach.
Today I have a call to action for those of you who are looking to put yourself first, for those of you who are looking to recharge.  I’m putting together a challenge.  This challenge consists of taking one minute to yourself every single day, a single minute.  Yes, simply one.  Sometimes it’s hard to kick old habits [giving, giving, giving and never replenishing].  😉 The challenge is to take a minute for yourself every single day and then share in this community what exactly it is that you did for yourself.  Did you sit with your eyes closed and your heart open? Did you simply listen to your favorite song? Did you hit pause? What did you do to refocus and re-center just for a single minute.  Do we want you to take more time for yourself overall? Absolutely! But for now, let’s just try this. Give me a minute, and I’ll give you the charge that you’re looking for.

hourglass usurnsonline.com 1

As healers, much of your focus is on the outside, on the rest of the community, and you neglect yourself.  Today, I ask that you reclaim your own body and your own power and dedicate true self love for simply a minute.  Every minute will look different, but I promise you, at the end of 30 days (yes, 30), you will find more self-love than ever before AND you won’t feel guilty for taking a 30 minute “escape.”  Put away the guilt and start replenishing the soul.  It all starts with baby steps.  We will have a 30 minute celebration at the Center at the end of the month.  I look forward to seeing you all there! Stay tuned for details!
With light,
Amy

26 Ways to be Safe As An Empath

26 Ways to Keep Your Peace as an Empath

I know the title is “…Ways to Stay Safe…”, but right from the start, we’d like to reframe that and say that you are ALWAYS safe. Being peaceful, comfortable, and content is really what we’re talking about here.

As an empath, the biggest challenge may be staying emotionally peaceful while still being an active participant in the world. Closing yourself off from everyone and everything that might make you feel is just not a very functional or fun option! Instead you need to find ways to comfortably be with your family & friends, go to work and navigate public spaces like grocery stores, restaurants and theaters.

You are only able to do this gracefully on a daily basis when you take time to stay grounded, re-fuel yourself with good self-care, and fully accept yourself (warts and all). Here are 26 tips on how to cope with the sense of “overwhelm” and take care of yourself so that you can be the best empathic you that you can be!

  1. Take a bath or shower. Place clearing or grounding crystals in with you for an extra boost of emotional cleansing.
  2. Take deep breaths. Visualize pulling power up from the earth as a bonus.
  3. Practice Yoga
  4. Carry a grounding crystal on you, it may be especially helpful to touch it or move it in your fingers to help you shift your energy.
  5. Burn sage or other incense.
  6. Acknowledge that the emotion is coming from outside of you.
  7. Pray- to Whomever you choose for support for you as well as for those who are suffering.
  8. Send positive, healing energy to whomever needs it.
  9. Use your sense of humor- laughter can elevate any energy!
  10. Remind yourself that you are not the cause, you cannot control it and you cannot cure it.
  11. Remove yourself from those sending out strong and uncomfortable emotions.
  12. Avoid being in close proximity to those you sense will overwhelm you with their feelings.
  13. Write down the feelings that don’t belong to you and shred them, releasing them from your energy at the same time. You could also tear the paper or burn it.
  14. Using a blow dryer or hand dryer, imagine it blowing the extra emotions away from you.
  15. Get outside. Make contact skin to ground or a tree. Release any emotions that aren’t yours to Mother Earth to be transformed.
  16. Recite or sing a mantra to change your energy and release what’s not yours.
  17.  Exercise. This is very grounding as well as mind-clearing.
  18. Meditate.
  19. Get regular massage, Reiki or other energy work to keep you balanced and clear.
  20. Make sure to include regular time alone and quiet in your schedule.
  21. Make time to be creative.
  22. Feed yourself well.
  23. Get enough sleep.
  24. Go to the water- large bodies of water are very rejuvenating.
  25. Begin your day by placing your feet on the ground very purposefully with the image of sending your roots deep into the ground. This is a very quick and easy way to start off well-grounded.
  26. Reach out for support wherever you can find it.

Spirit retreat 2016 Puerto Vallarta sunset from the boardwalk of the city

Spiritual Retreat 2017

Join us for a trip to the
Mayan Temple at Chichen Itza 

Dedicated to the Serpent God Kukulcan

 

 

March 18- 25, 2017 the Center for Holistic Healing and Art will be traveling to Puerto Morelos, Mexico just south of Cancun for a week-long immersion in self-discovery and expansion and a trip to the pyramids! Amy, Andrea and Kristi will act as guides and mentors for an intimate group for this week away from the ordinary. We will be staying at  Secrets Silversands Riviera, an adults only, all-inclusive, 5 star resort on the lovely Mexican Riviera where March temperatures are a delightful 86 degrees on average. The week will include daily meditation plus a variety of metaphysical and creative activities designed to support and encourage you to dive deep within yourself to let your goddess shine. After inner exploration there will be ample time for further self-care by re-charging in the ocean and pools. We will be treated to many types of cuisine and entertainment provided by the resort.

The week will include but is not limited to:

  • Exploration of the Akashic Records

  • Light Connection healing

  • Conversations with Great Spirit

  • Self-Realization workshops using The Map

  • Mediumship

  • Spirit drawing

  • Intuitive Energy Cards

  • Meditative doodling

  • Crystal grid healing

  • Chakra balancing

This week will be about experiencing these types of things as well as exploring how you are able to connect to more than your 5 senses. Intense opening to self can be challenging, but when done with this group support and balanced with pampering and fun, it creates the path to magnificent growth!

As part of our retreat we will be picked up at the resort by a private van with a personal guide to enjoy a full day excursion to the  Mayan Kukulkan Pyramid, local taqueria, shopping and a swim in a cenote (cave with a natural pool). A second, partial day excursion will include a boat trip that will allow us to see and swim with sea turtles and we may also find dolphins!

Your fee will include:

  • 7 nights and 8 days of lodging

  • 24-hr delicious food and top-shelf beverages including room service

  • Access to beach and pools as well as hot tub and fitness center

  • Two cultural excursions

  • All the metaphysical activities and workshops

It may also include round trip airport transportation (still working on that with facility). Prepayment 30 days in advance will allow a $50 discount off total and coupons for spa services. It does not include beverages while on the excursions, tipping of tour guides. You will want to consider money for shopping opportunities and any spa treatments you would like to treat yourself to as well.

Rates are based on double occupancy in hotel suites, two double beds per room, shower, jacuzzi, balcony. It does not include airfare to/from Cancun International Airport. Total investment for this luxurious week of connecting with your inner goddess is $2200. This is what self-love is all about!

If you feel you are meant to join us on this exclusive retreat, contact Kristi at kndjnstn@comcast.net to inquire about availability of space.

Please select the ticket you wish to purchase at this time- note a deposit of $500 is due no later than Jan. 15 to hold your place, then return to purchase second “ticket” for the balance. This would still be only for you personally, it is not purchaing a second spot on the trip. Dates are for when the money will be debited from your account, actual trip dates are March 18-25. You may also choose to pay the entire balance at once. Please purchase plane tickets into Cancun and be sure to let us know your planned trip details here.

Overwhelm and Anxiety

Feeling overwhelmed and anxious is a pretty common complaint these days. Even a short time out in public spaces or listening to the news can be quite distressing.

Here is a process of focusing your awareness that you can do in just a few minutes nearly anywhere except driving.

1. Focus your attention on one body part at a time and really feel the surfaces that are touching you- clothing, seat, floor.

2. Notice the temperature of the air on your exposed skin, sense the darkness or light with your eyes closed.

3. Now expand your awareness to your energy that is outside the confines of your body- your aura. Feel how large it is and what it passes through or comes to rest against.

4. Now enjoy feeling yourself taking up all of this space, both physically and energetically. Stamp your feet and revel in your own solidity.

5. Take a few deep, slow breaths with your hands on your hips and your feet spread wide as you become accustomed to this expanded way of being.

From this place of confidence and self-awareness you can let love and compassion for others flow effortlessly out of you and towards everyone around you, without judgement or restriction. Practicing self-love and self-care in this way makes you more capable of helping others. It also makes you less likely to feel overwhelmed and more in control of your own emotions.

This is not intended to dismiss or minimize the issues of anyone dealing with panic attacks, depression, or severe anxiety disorder. It is aimed at those who are looking for a new tool to deal with situational anxiety.

It is also a terrific way of realizing your power to effect change in the world by sending out love. This is an active endeavor that can decrease your sense of helplessness with all that is going on around the globe.
