Yin and Yang-Finding Balance

The ancient yin yang symbol represents harmony and balance in nature. The contrasting black, (yin) and white, (yang) remind us that everything in nature is dualistic.  This philosophy dates back more than 3,500 years ago to the I Ching or Book of Changes, which greatly influenced Taoism and Confucianism.

The dualistic principles of yin and yang come in pairs, for example, dark and light, hot and cold, male and female, sun and moon to name a few. These opposing forces of energy must co-exist in order to create harmony.  Nothing is completely yin or yang and as a result, there must be a flow in order to achieve balance.

“The universe is the harmony of opposites, because there is no water without fire, there is no female with no male, there is no night without day, there is no sun without the moon…there is no good without evil! This symbol is perfect since the white and black are embracing each other; inside the white there is a black point and inside the black there is a white point.” -Tiziano Terzani

So how do we balance the yin and yang in our lives?  Time appears to be moving faster than ever and for many people life seems to fly by.  Too often we become stressed and overtaxed by our schedules and not able to meet the demands placed upon us. Stress wreaks havoc on our bodies causing fatigue, increased inflammation, lack of sleep, and a weakened immune system for starters.

We can re-establish balance in our lives by taking time to nourish and nurture ourselves. These are my top five favorite ways to restore, replenish, and bring harmony to my body, mind and soul.

  1. Earthing– Stand outside on Mother Earth with bare feet. Earthing is the process of absorbing earths free flowing electrons from it’s surface through the soles of your feet. It is a very effect way to ground.   (See my blog post on grounding for more info.)
  2. Connect with Nature–  Take a walk on the beach, watch the hummingbirds in your backyard, garden, go hiking. Nature is a natural anti-depresant.
  3. Meditate– Spend some alone time in silence. Quiet your mind from all of the Chitta Vritti Nirodha (mind chatter). Focus on your breath, a mantra or the flame of a candle. Give you mind a rest and feel the peace and calm that comes with meditation.
  4. Move your body- It is important to get the chi/prana flowing through your body so make sure you move at least 10-15 minutes a day. My personal favorite is Yin Yoga along with a hike in nature. This combination puts me right again!
  5. Sleep– Getting enough sleep is essential in maintaining overall wellness. If you have difficulty sleeping, begin your bedtime routine earlier and include a warm bath with lavender aromatherapy oil and epson salts. Just before bed listen to Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep). You can find Yoga Nidra Guided Sleep Meditations on Youtube.

“Through constant and loving care by daily cleansing, eating high-vibrational foods, drinking an abundance of water and moving the body, the body temple will vibrate at the highest frequency, allowing the soul to expand, grow and accomplish wonderful things.” The White Angels

The only true path to harmony in our lives is through balance. Finding the yin and yang, by nurturing our body, mind and soul allows us to live a happier, healthier and more abundant life.

10 Steps to Happiness

Happiness is a choice. It is a decision that we make moment by moment. Lasting happiness does not come from a car, home, job, lover, or any external influences. True happiness comes from within, not without.

The White Angels give the following ten steps to happiness.

Ten Steps to Happiness

1. Wake each day in gratitude and go to sleep each night giving thanks.

2. Take time to go within by sitting in silent meditation.

3. Talk to God, (even if you don’t know how).

4. Do something for someone else without any thought of receiving in return. Giving to others cleanses the spirit and removes ego’s grip.

5. Raise your vibration. Think positive thoughts, (your thoughts create your reality).

6. Eat healthy food. Food should be used to bring
nutrients to the body not pleasure to the mind.

7. Move the body by doing something you love.

8. Socialize. Meet like-minded people.

9. Laugh. Don’t take life too seriously (it will be over before you know it!).

10. Decide to be happy. It is a conscious choice.

The fact is, we are solely in charge of our own happiness. It is no one’s responsibility to make us or keep us happy. If we give our power to others expecting happiness in return we will certainly be disapointed. It is true that happiness will not come to you, it can only come from you.

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.”-Marcus Aurelius

Not My Lesson

Not My Lesson

Lately the angels have been teaching me a very important lesson. Whenever I am tempted to get involved with someone’s drama, or take on their problems, they simply remind me , “Ani it is not your lesson”.

We each have our own struggles and difficulties to overcome in this lifetime. Our souls agree to undertake these challenges as a learning and growing experience during our life. Prior to our incarnation, we contract with loved ones, friends and even strangers to help teach us how to love and forgive one another.  However, we must decipher when it is and isn’t our lesson to learn.

The White Angels share the following:

“The soul’s journey is a difficult one filled with many lessons.  Each lesson is determined by the soul so that it might reach its full potential and once again return to God. The most important lesson for every soul is that of forgiveness and unconditional love.  Continue reading

‘Tis the Season

December is a joyful time of giving and sharing.  It is also the time of year that is most associated with angels. Angels are everywhere! They appear on cards and hang as ornaments on our trees. We sing carols about them and make sugar cookies shaped like them. But do you believe angels exist? Continue reading

Grounding

What is grounding?

Grounding is reconnecting to the Earth’s subtle energy by walking or running barefoot on the ground. The first human beings walk and slept on the Earths surface soaking in all of her natural healing energy. In our civilized, modern world we have become disconnected by living indoors and wearing rubber shoes which prevent our feet from absorbing the negatively charged electrons from Earths surface.

Standing on the Earths surface (Earthing) is the quickest and most effective way to ground ourselves.  In his book “Earthing, Dr. Stephen Sinatra considers Earthing one of the most important health discovery ever. He demonstrates that emerging science reveals that direct contact with the ground allows you to receive an “energy infusion.” Dr. Sinatra stresses that this Earth energy can restore and stabilize the bioelectrical circuitry that governs your physiology and organs, harmonize your basic biological rhythms, boost self-healing mechanism, reduce inflammation and pain, and improve your sleep and feeling of calmness.

The White Angels (in Croatia)

This summer I had the great fortune to travel to Croatia for 16 days.  I spent seven days on a beautiful yacht with 30 amazing Goddesses and the remainder I spent exploring Croatia and the surrounding countries by myself. I was slightly apprehensive traveling alone since it was really the first time I had done so. I found that I had nothing to worry about as my angels were with me 24-7 and they constantly let me know through synchronicities and signs.

One such synchronicities happened in the city of Dubrovnik. This incredible city joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites in 1979.  The thick stone walls surrounding the city for centuries have protected it from intruders, but it was not until the “Homeland War” in 1991 with the break-up of Yugoslavia that the walls and the city were torn apart by the war. Since that time Dubrovnik has rebuilt and re-emerged as one of the top tourist destinations in the Mediterranean.

Staying in the heart of the walled city proved to be extremely convenient. I could explore the maze of ancient streets rich in history before any of the cruise ship crowds descended like a swarm of bees buzzing with anticipation. Much of my exploration consisted of searching out any and all sacred and religious sites. Dubrovnik is a treasure trove of churches and historic buildings, a walking museum. I discovered the oldest pharmacy in Europe (built by local monks) that opened in 1317 and is still operating today.

One day I came upon a Serbian Orthodox Church called the Holy Annunciation. Entering the church was like stepping into a time capsule. A gilded wall of gold with a stunning mural of the last supper painted above it was the main attraction. Byzantine angels and paintings of Christ lined the walls. I closed my eyes and tuned into the vibration of the room saying a silent prayer to God. I thanked the angels for their guidance and protection and on my trip and expressed my eternal love and gratitude. I asked if they would let me know they were near.  Continue reading
