At the Hearts Center, we have practiced different techniques for breathing and meditation, all of which provide great benefits for our lives and the lives of those around us. What are the benefits of practicing Buddha Breathing regularly? Consciously breathing in light, prana or chi strengthens the immune system, brings physical vitality and health, emotional well-being, mental clarity and spiritual upliftment.
The practice of breathing meditation draws our attention to holding a powerful focus of love within ourselves, which we can offer wholeheartedly for the healing and wholeness of family, friends, colleagues and all others across the entire Earth. There are no limits to the expanse or the inclusiveness of our loving embrace.
It reminds us to use the challenges we experience in our own lives to connect with the challenges others are experiencing, and to actively assist them through our focused intention to cope with and transform those challenges.
We become powerful generators of love, light and joy for happiness and contentment across the planet.
Tempus fugit! Here we are in 2020! Seems like yesterday we were all anxious about the turning of the century into a new millennium (2000 and beyond). For example, we were anxious about the possible “Y2K crisis.” Some believed computes would crash. As it turned out, that was a “tempest in a teapot.” But, by contrast, the traumatic events of 9/11 have changed our world and taken away some of our personal freedoms as a result.
We all wondered, especially Numerologists and Astrologers, how the coming millennial years’ events would turn out. Now, 20 years later in retrospect, we see the unfolding of events, both individually and globally. The archetypical energy themes played out year-by-year have been dramatic and earth-changing, with political upheaval, mass immigration throughout the world, financial collapse, and huge divisions in public opinion, sometimes orchestrated by mass media, have polarized families, acquaintances, communities, and nations.
During a recent Quantum Healing Hypnosis session, a female client viewed a past life as a medieval soldier. The man’s name was Banyon, and he was incredibly strong and courageous. He exuded confidence, as he confronted a mad king about the impending fall of his kingdom due to the dictator’s own greed, gluttony, and incompetence. As conquering forces encroached the village, Banyon led the townsfolk to safety and left the king to his demise.
Years later, Banyon, living peacefully in a small mountain cabin, was approached by the soldiers of a new king. They asked him to fight for them, as his valor in battle was renowned throughout the land. Once again, Banyon displayed his confidence, as he spoke with this new ruler and declared that he would only lead the soldiers of a monarch who put his subjects before himself. Only after the king proved himself to be loyal to his people did Banyon go to fight for him.
Spiritual seekers of today who desire to deepen their experience of the Divine can benefit from the powerful energies of the sun through the solar sciences. Allowing solar light to stimulate one’s physical body, aura and chakras is an ancient science that can accelerate intuition and inner peace to flow through our consciousness, being, and world.
Knowing and practicing the solar sciences of the spirit will become commonplace and popular as the sensitive ones use their inner gifts and higher talents to co-create conscious communities of light within a quickly evolving, solar civilization.
Solar meditation is a practice that involves arising early and greeting the source of all life-giving energies, the sun.
My belief in an afterlife began at a young age and was strengthened at age 20 when a radiant sun appeared before me. I then knew there was something more, beyond our Earth life, that awaited us. In the last several years, I set out to discover what else I could find on the afterlife, deciding to research in depth various descriptions about it. I learned a lot, and can only conclude that Paradise is most definitely real. Souls who live there report that it’s important for everyone to have a greater awareness of the varying experiences that await us after we leave the Earth.
Another name for Paradise is the “Summerland.” It has also been called, depending on the source, the “upper astral plane” or the “lower etheric octave.” It is an environment of great loveliness, more beautiful than Earth. There are also countless reports of “higher realms” beyond the Paradise level, even more beautiful, joy-filled, and peaceful.
PANEURHYTHMY is a sacred dance form created by the master Peter Deunov who lived in Bulgaria from 1864 to 1944. He was an inspired teacher of the Perennial Wisdom and embodied both great simplicity and tremendous profoundness and inspired excellence in everyone around him. He taught the art of living in harmony with others, nature and the divine.
Peter Deunov was also a gifted musician who composed the music and the steps for the Paneurhythmy or spiritual exercises, as they are sometimes called. This sacred movement is danced in the valleys of the Rila Mountains in Bulgaria between the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes. Every summer, thousands of people travel to the Seven Lakes in the Rila Mountains to perform Paneurhythmy and to enjoy the beautiful mountains. It is also practiced in many other countries throughout the world: Argentina, Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Costa Rica, Great Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, Mexico, Philippines, Russia and the United States of America.
I recently facilitated a past-life regression for a woman we will call “Jamie,” who came into my office with questions about the injustices of the world. She had experienced an immense amount of physical and emotional suffering throughout her life and wanted to understand the purpose. She wanted to know why life was so hard and why she needed to incarnate on this Earth.
After viewing one particularly intense past life involving her ex-husband, I decided to guide her back to Source, so she could heal from the trauma. When I asked her to describe how she felt there, she said, “It’s so good to be back home! I feel wanted. I feel loved. I want to stay here!” I told her to enjoy it and to let it recharge her. When she was ready, I guided her to another appropriate time and place.
We are all blessed with a unique Divine Soul purpose. When we are aligned with it, we feel empowered—we thrive and shine. In the radiance of our authenticity, we positively effect, perhaps even inspire, the lives of others. Living our Soul purpose brings us direction, deep satisfaction, and motivation to succeed in our chosen endeavors. It’s not a secret, yet we may remain uncertain as to what our Soul purpose is or how to find it. The Akashic Records are available to us all as the Soul’s “golden key” life manual, unlocking our unique talents and gifts, the history of the soul, and opening promising visions of future possibilities.
How many times have we recognized that we repeated, once more, a negative pattern, which left us regretful of that choice? We promise ourselves that we will do it differently next time, yet there’s a proverbial foot nailed to the floor, and we’re not always successful at keeping that promise. Sometimes we almost catch ourselves, yet an elusive fog seems to cover what might bring clarity and assist us with interrupting a pattern. In other cases, we are living uninspired lives, as we were taught we “should” live.
Living in Missoula is a great blessing. Having grown up here, and especially now as I co-operate a nonprofit multicultural temple, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a wide array of beautiful, kind, and empathetic individuals—indeed there is something special and sacred about these here parts! Empathy is on the rise in the world, and NW America is a shining example of this reality.
Though interpretations of empathy may be numerous, the essence remains the same through and through: empathy is the experience of emotionally mirroring or absorbing surrounding emotions. Additionally, and most importantly, the experience of empathy requires a response of compassion.
I seem to be lurching from one crisis to another. I rear-ended someone last month, and the cost to repair my car was much more than our insurance will cover. I’m dealing with an injury to my neck, which is painful and is taking time and money to heal. The company I work for is going through major changes and I’m in danger of losing the position I’ve had for nine years. On top of that, our four-year-old Husky got out of our fenced yard last week and we haven’t seen her since. I feel exhausted and overwhelmed. Can you help?
I’m sorry you’ve had so many crises in such a short period of time! Your feelings of exhaustion and overwhelm seem quite normal given what you’re going through. I will try to give you a spiritual perspective on these crises, which may make them easier to deal with.
