3 Easy Steps to Creating a Personal Mantra

By Guest Writer, Shaylee Ford

What is a mantra?

The word mantra can be broken down into two parts: “man”, which means mind, and “tra”, which means transport or vehicle. A personal mantra can be thought of as a seed for energizing an intention. Getting to the ancient root of it all, mantra, at its core is the basis of all religious traditions, scriptures, and prayers. Today, a mantra is better understood as a repetitive thought to aid in the creation of experience, or to induce deep meditative states. Below are 3 easy steps to create a personal mantra and use it in everyday life.

  1. Decide What it is You Want
    As a mother with young children, it can be challenging at times to find a quiet minute to settle my thoughts and clear my mind, and I am sure even if you don’t have kids you can relate to this. Consciously make an effort without setting an expectation, to sit quietly, clear the mind or meditate and ask yourself: “what do I truly want?”. As the thoughts come you write them down. These things can range from money, a relationship, love, happiness and the list goes on.
    Example: “I want more money.”
  2. Create a Mindful Statement
    When creating a mindful statement or personal mantra, keep in mind that the universe is a genie and the genie always says, “Your wish is my command!”. If we are looking at the statemen “I want more money.”, Genie: “your wish is my command!”. Now you have created the ugly circle of “I want more money.”, which will leave you always wanting more money.
  3. There are two secrets to creating a mindful statement. The first one is the subject of what you want, if you want more money then let money be the subject. Stay away from things likeCreate a Personal Mantra, “I want to be out of debt.”, debt being the subject will only bring you more debt. The second secret is live your statement as if you already have it. For example, the words I AM or I HAVE put you in the place of already being or having what you desire.
    Example: “I am abundant always.”
    “I have abundance always.”
  4. Start Creating!
    In some cultures, it is said that you must sit and meditate for hours, or be alone in nature for an extended period while reciting your personal mantra for it to manifest. This is purely a belief system and like any other belief system it is only true if you chose to believe in it. Putting a personal mantra into action is very simple and very flexible according to what works best for you. You can incorporate your mantra into your thought processes, journaling or even speaking whenever you want to. You may start your day with meditation and reflecting on gratitude, you may recite the words in your mind while you are in the car, or my personal favorite, while I am doing mindless work at my job. Another trigger is replacing any negative thought counterproductive to what it is you wish to create with your safe, productive mantra! In time, you will find that becoming aware of our auto-pilot thoughts that are literally creating your reality will begin to change!

Mantras can be used to change or recreate anything in your life. With a little bit of dedication to self-awareness you can have exactly the life you have always wanted. Remember to reflect daily on the things in your life that truly serve your highest good and pay no mind to the do not. Life is full of experiences, be mindful of the ones you choose!

QRI Low-Level Laser: Transformation at the Speed of Light

In order to continue offering a whole body-mind-spirit wellness approach, I’ve integrated a new therapy that is backed up by more than 8000 research studies called Quantum Reflex Integration or QRI for short.  Low-level laser (or light) therapy (LLLT)—also known as a cold or soft laser, bio stimulation, or photo bio-modulation, is a therapeutic tool that includes low-level red, violet, and near-Infrared light from lasers or LEDs.

qri harmonic
Doctors, dentists, physical therapists, and other medical professionals use cold laser therapy in a variety of ways. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. The QRI system also integrates sound frequencies for cellular regeneration. According to Bonnie Brandes, creator of the QRI Harmonic System, “the use of cold laser therapy is growing in traditional medical practice and as complementary or alternative therapy. Under the care of a doctor or qualified practitioner, cold laser therapy is considered safe. Also on the plus side, it’s noninvasive, painless, and there’s no need for medication or other preparation. There are generally no side effects or reported adverse events.”

Below is some information as to how cold laser has been and is being used by various professionals.

Doctors, dentists, physical therapists, and other medical professionals use cold laser therapy in a variety of ways. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation.

Minor Injuries and Sprains
Sports medicine and physical therapy practices use cold laser therapy in the treatment of minor injuries and sprains. It is used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue.

Inflammation
Dentists use cold lasers to treat inflamed tissues in the mouth and to heal ulcerations. Doctors also use it to treat inflammation caused by arthritis and other chronic autoimmune diseases.

Aches and Pains
Pain clinics use it to help people who suffer from chronic pain. Therapeutic massage therapy sometimes involves cold laser therapy.

Skin Rejuvenation
Cold laser therapy is used to promote skin rejuvenation. Dermatologists use it to treat various skin problems such as ulcers, burns, inflammation of the skin (edema), and rashes (dermatitis).”

During the last 6 months, I’ve used the QRI low-level laser system in my “Total Innergy Scan” and the “Stress and Emotional Release” sessions. The first is a comprehensive assessment of the energy flow within your physical, emotional, and mental system to bring you back to balance through Targeted Nutritional and Energetic Intervention. I will share more information about the benefits you will experience during these sessions. In the meantime, please read David’s testimonial below.

How to Practice Self-care

When you think about nurturing yourself, do you ever wonder what are the best ways to do it. Read below and learn how to practice self-care.

“We’ll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we practice self-care and see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness?

Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.”

Energy Psychology is a mind-body approach that focuses on balancing the bio-energetic system to bring balance at all levels. If you’re ready to lower your stress levels, improve your overall feeling of wellness, there are gentle techniques that can help you achieve your goal.

Reiki: Restore, Re-balance and Renew

Are you stressed?

Mentally and/or physically exhausted?

Believe it or not, your body is programmed to heal, to nourish and restore itself to wholeness and wellness. But in order to perform these processes it is necessary to deactivate the “fight or flight” mode that daily, physical or mental stress triggers, so your system can focus on restoring the body’s own ability to heal itself.

Reiki is a gentle, alternative therapy that helps you Restore, Re-balance and Renew your MIND – BODY – SOUL harmony.

reiki ngsRecent research supports what Chinese medicine has promoted for thousand years , the correlation between emotions and dis-ease. Unresolved emotions are stored in the physical body causing an array of symptoms ranging from chronic pain, insomnia, headaches, weight issues and hormonal imbalance.

A Reiki treatment works at deeper levels to solve the underlying cause of both, physical and emotional issues instead of masking the symptoms. Several organizations across the nation are offering alternative therapies like Reiki to its employees to reduce health care costs and reduce absenteism while supporting the individual’s wellbeing.

Parker Hannifin, a fortune 250 manufacturing company offer its employees, nationwide, access to holistic care as part of the company’s preventative wellness program. Lilian Llanos is credentialed through NGS CoreSource as Reiki Practitioner to assist clients in overcoming stress and releasing emotional burden.

The Reiki Session

Reiki TreatmentDuring a Reiki session, you will lie down or sit comfortably, fully clothed. The practitioner may keep the hands lightly on or just above body, palms down, using a sequence of 12 to 15 different hand positions. Each position is held for about 2 to 5 minutes, or until the flow of energy is needed. You may experience the energy flow as warmth or tingling as you are also immersed in a deep feeling of calmness.

The number of sessions needed depends on the client’s issues and goals.

Disclaimer:
As the NCCIH Clearinghouse highlights,

Reiki should not be used to replace conventional care or to postpone seeing a health care provider about a health problem. If you have severe or long-lasting symptoms, see your health care provider. You may have a health problem that needs prompt treatment.

Tell all your health care providers about any complementary health approaches you use. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care. For tips about talking with your health care providers about complementary health approaches, see NCCIH’s Time to Talk campaign.

 

“When I scheduled my first Reiki session, it was during the most stressful time of my life. Long story short, it felt like my entire world had turned upside down. Something inside me told me that I deserved to have reiki. And from the first time I met Lilian, I felt drawn to her peaceful energy. During the session, I was so relaxed that I actually fell asleep, and that is NOT normal for me! The best way I can describe the peace I felt is that it felt as though I was being cradled and loved in the arms of my Creator. I believe with all of my heart that this is Lilian’s divine purpose and I thank her for sharing her light with me.”

Jennifer Slaughter Rock Your World Jewelry North Ogden, Utah

“Thank you for helping my first Reiki session to be calming. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. There are still questions about what happened, but there are no stresses about what happened. The calm feeling I felt was similar to the calm feeling I experience on the temple. After pondering on the experience, I’d say it was like a spiritual massage with physical cues.”

What Is Behind Of Your Fear Of Judgement

dalai-lama-love-judgment

One of our biggest fears is the fear of judgment, but fear of being judged, and our own self-judgement can become the biggest blocks on our road to success.

We must strive to let go of the need to judge people and experiences and categorize them as good or bad, right or wrong. Instead, focus on seeing greatness and perfection on ourselves, and all human beings.

If you could fully embrace the perfect being you are, how more joyful life would be?

What would you dare pursue?

Would you give yourself permission to dream big?

Stop trying to prove yourself worthy!

You’re worth isn’t determined by what you do, or have, but by who you are, a divine child of God.

Every morning, take the time to acknowledge your divine nature. Consider what you can manifest as the powerful co-creator you are, and see your life unfolding perfectly, right now, right here.

You are the creator of your destiny. Start living life without limits!

Forgive and Heal

How often do you allow yourself to sit with your emotions?

Most people just don’t it because raw emotions can be very painful.

Until we learn the importance of both, facing our emotions and digging deep to get to the root causes
for our behaviors, we will keep having the same responses to certain triggers. PERIOD.

In other words, if you had an experience as a child that caused you to feel abandoned, you may still be
running the core belief that you don’t deserve to be loved, and no matter how your relationship with your
partner goes you always end up feeling physically or emotionally abandoned.

You may even start to push your partner away to validate your belief, and to avoid the pain caused
by the anticipated rejection.  Whether your partner leaves on his/her own, or you push him/her away,
the result is the same, you will experience abandonment. (Been there. Done that ):)

Viktor-Frankl

This must and can change. Yes, you can forgive and heal. You can CHANGE the limiting beliefs that block your ability to create abundance and success in every area of your life.

You can CHOOSE to respond in a healthy way. You can make the CHOICE of taking responsibility for your thinking and responses.

As Viktor Frankl described it, this choice is “the ultimate of human freedom – the choice of attitude in any situation, no matter how adverse the circumstances.”

It’s time for you to start living life without limits, and I’m here to assist you to achieve your deepest
desires. Let’s do it!

Simply, contact me to schedule an “INNER” Discovery Session.

Live Life Without Limits!

Your Feelings Are Valid

It’s been a rough day.

I’ve been riding the emotional roller coaster we’ve all experienced in life. For the first time since his birth, I felt that my son who has Down Syndrome had been excluded.

I had a long pity party even though part of me knew it was my decision to stay in that space or turn it around and move on, and still, I chose the first.

I guess, I simply needed to let my emotions run wild for a bit to come back to balance later.

Even though part of me knew there was no reason to feel that way, my feelings felt so real that it was all that matter to me. It was real. It was valid, because the feelings were real.

Then, I felt compassion for every one experiencing any type of sorrow. I thought how unfair it is for anyone to dare to judge anyone’s feelings and responses to emotional triggers, or even your own.

After a very cleansing cry, the sadness turned into peacefulness. Now, I just hope I can be more compassionate with everyone in the future. And that I also allow myself to experience my emotions as they come without being judgmental.

Your feelings are valid!

The Chakra System

Chakra, presently gaining popularity and becoming a household word, dates back to the Vedas (1,500 – 500 B.C.) in India. When speaking of Chakra we have to think in terms of energy. This is because it pertains to the seven energy centers in our body where our consciousness and energy system is composed. This is a Sanskrit word which originally means “wheel” referring to the chariot wheels of the rulers or the cakravartin. However, it really signifies the sun which denotes the eternal wheel of time called the kalacakra. Despite its early beginnings, in our generation, the study of chakra has definitely come of age.

Chakra System

What is the significance of studying the chakra system then? How is it useful to us?

The Chakra system consists of seven chakra points or energy centers which function like valves or pumps that regulate the flow of energy through our energy system. This shows the correlation between functioning of our chakras and our decisions / responses concerning life conditions. It has everything to do with our perceptual experience of the world around us. We either open or close these “valves” based on what we think, feel and how we want to embrace life. All these conscious thoughts and states of mind can be categorized into seven chakras associated with one of the seven endocrine glands and a group of nerves called the plexus. The seven chakras are the following: Crown chakra, Brow chakra, Throat chakra, Heart chakra, Solar Plexus chakra, Sex or Orange chakra and Root chakra.

Each chakra represents a particular part and a function within the body and detected by a particular nerve of the plexus associated with that bodily part. So when we have a conscious thought, tension or stress, this is felt by a particular chakra and transmitted by the nerves of the plexus of that particular body part. What started in the metaphysical realm is translated into the physical – there is now a physical symptom that will manifest.

The symptom reflects our mindset, how we create our reality – it shows us what we are doing to ourselves from the level of consciousness. It sort of gives us a feedback on the way our conscious thought molds and creates the physical existence that we have.

Thus, it is clear that it is highly important that we start understanding the chakras so as to understand the relationship between our consciousness and our body. It is advised that we start seeing our bodies as a map of our consciousness in order to gain a better understanding of our own selves and of the people around us. In believing that anything is possible, we are opening ourselves to a physical reality where anything and everything is possible. All these will require a thorough study and understanding of the chakra system and its relevance to us.

 

Live in the Moment!

A message from Dr. Wayne Dyer…

I love this message so much that I had to share it here. I hope you enjoy it and follow Dr. Wayne Dyer’s wisdom. If you want to sign up for Wayne’s Weekly Wisdom follow the link at the end of this article.

This day that you’re living right now is the only day you get. Period. You can resolve to be skinny when next July rolls around, or to quit smoking next month, or to write that book you’ve been meaning to, or to embark on your overdue exercise program by the end of this year. You can go about resolving until the cows come home, and you still have to live your life just like everyone else on the planet: One day at a time.

You can only live minute to minute. You can certainly use up your present moments thinking about what you’ll be doing in the future, but that doesn’t change the fact that you can only live in the now. The important question to be asking yourself is:

How am I going to live in the present moment this year?

live-in-the-moment

Will I waste these moments reviewing the way I used to behave? Will I waste these moments reviewing how I would like to behave in the future rather than resolving to live each day to the fullest?

The New Year is a good time to initiate a plan so you can make some changes and help live your life to the fullest. See if you can practice thinking differently. Decide very specifically what it is that you would like to change about yourself in 2015. If you have some goals in mind, vow to work on them day by day rather than making them a year-long project.

When you set up day-to-day goals for yourself, you can begin living this way for the rest of your life. Remember this little piece of advice, which will be extremely helpful to you if you can incorporate it into your life: When you go for one entire day without eating sugar (or not smoking, or being assertive, or any other new behavior), you are a totally different person at the end of that day. What you must learn to do is let that totally different person decide on the second day whether to do it again on this new day, rather than letting the same old person decide today that it is going to be difficult in a couple of days anyhow, so what’s the use. Always let the New You make the decision, and then you’ll be living your present moments.

Remember, you are in control of all thoughts in your head. When you are using up your present moments to worry about the future, constantly reviewing the past to come up with how you should have done it differently, or contemplating disaster, remind yourself that you are wasting this particular present moment.

Practice cancelling out negative thoughts for a few minutes at a time. Vow to enjoy the next five minutes regardless of what has previously transpired or what you think is about to happen. Remind yourself of the folly of wasting your present moments on mental activity that focuses exclusively on your past or imagined future. All of your thoughts about what you should have done, or how terrible things were in the past will not change one tiny slice of the past.

As you celebrate this New Year and each precious present moment, here are 10 reminders to help you live in the Now:

  1. Remember that habits are changed by practicing new behavior. By practicing new thinking every five mintues, you’ll soon begin to master the art of present-moment living.
  2. Do an honest assessment of your “problems.” You’ll very likely discover that almost all of your problems are really in your head and not located in reality.
  3. Take time to be mindful of everything around you. Begin to look at your entire surroundings in a new light. Observe every detail on every face, every building and every object. If you do this often enough it will become a habit that will facilitate your being alive in every moment of the year.
  4. Change your attitude. Begin an attitude-redevelopment plan. That means practice enjoying everything you do.
  5. Be specific about what you want and take action. Decide on one thing that you would like to work on and do it today. Work at it daily, rather than making it a long-range objective.
  6. Create a self-improvement agenda for yourself. Put on your agenda whatever activities you’ve always thought about but never had time to do. Do them now.
  7. Rid yourself of mundane chores that are not really that important. Spend more time making your life a pleasure.
  8. Eliminate procrastination as a lifestyle. Instead of talking to yourself about what you are going to do next week or even tomorrow, use this time to start a new task.
  9. Don’t give up control of your life to others. You cannot enjoy the present moment if you are busy trying to make everyone else like you. People respect you more when you operate from a position of strength and self-reliance.
  10. Feel good about yourself. You are a magnificent human being. Always feel good about that self that you are always with.

For 2015, as I have for many other years, I vow to be fully alive and see the world the way Walt Whitman described it to be many years ago: “To me…every cubic inch of space is a miracle.” I really believe that.

I wish you a New Year filled with many miracles. May you live a long and productive life—one present moment at a time.

The Subconscious Mind and The Inner Process

The Importance of working with the Subconscious Mind

The information stored in the subconscious mind determines how we view, face and respond to our life experiences. To explain the concept, we usually represent the mind with the image of an iceberg, as you can see below. The top part represents the conscious mind, and the bottom part represents the subconscious mind.

The conscious mind is the part that does all the thinking and reasoning, and it takes about a 10% of the mind capacity. It is where your will resides, and where you make decisions and choices.

iceberg

The subconscious mind, also called the emotional or feeling mind, holds every single one of your thoughts, feelings or ideas. This part of the mind also controls the processes that occur in your body without your conscious effort. Breathing, pumping blood in and out of your heart, and also driving, and riding a bike are good examples. Once the ideas and thoughts are impressed in the subconscious mind, they become part of your personality.

People often come for assistance to release emotions or experiences based on what they believe is causing the issues determined at a conscious level. The INNER Process allows the practitioner to detect the core issue determining the negative emotional responses that challenge us.
