What If I Don't Want To?!?

Bentinho Massaro talks about not doing things that you don’t feel great about.  However, another way to say that is to only do the things you love to do.  So, if you don’t love to do something you feel you HAVE to do, simply find a way to love it!  It feels a bit like working in reverse, but you can by get excited about those things you don’t want to do by looking at them from a different perspective.

For example, I couldn’t stand cooking awhile ago, but have a passion for healthy cooking now. I’ve enjoyed being married to men who were great cooks and I just never had the knack or desire.  After my recent divorce, however, I found that I derived the slightest enjoyment from being his sous chef.  I knew the spices he used and had watched him a million times.  For the most part, it was very simple, but he would even venture out to try gourmet meals saying that it was easy… you just follow the instructions.  SO, I decided to ask friends and roommates what they make and how.  Then I’d try it myself.  To my surprise, it became fun!  It was like meditation.  And it is even more fun with your favorite music in the background.  Once I started getting compliments, it was very reinforcing.  Today, I very much enjoy it and am a great cook!

I think you can take anything you’re not good at or don’t like and become great at it, feel a sense of accomplishment, then start to feel super awesome about it.  Either way you choose (don’t do it or learn to love it), it gets the job done.  If you don’t like doing bookkeeping for your business, you could either hire or trade out for someone to do it for you or you can take a class, study up, and become a pro… make it easy and fun for yourself!

I try to make everything I do “high vibe”.  When I watch movies, I stay in a state of presence observing myself and feeling radiant. In this way, nothing I do feels dull or icky unless I choose that feeling state.  Try it and have fun in all that you do! Please feel free to leave a comment below with any questions or feedback. Namaste.

RECOMMENDED ROCKS
FOR NEW PERSPECTIVES

Green Adventurine = Releases old patterns, habits and disappointments so new growth can take place. It brings optimism and a zest for life, allowing one to move forward with confidence and to embrace change. It enhances one’s creativity and motivation, and encourages perseverance in maneuvering life’s obstacles. It also reinforces one’s decisiveness and amplifies leadership qualities, injecting a sense of humor and openness to the ideas of others.
Chrysocolla = The green color of Chrysocolla relates to the Heart Chakra and perfectly symbolizes how this crystal can support you during difficult times. This stone boosts your confidence and gives you the courage to deal with whatever situation you are facing. It is excellent for your heart, helping you release stress and tension while bringing joy into your life.

Garnet = A fantastic stone for the Base (or Root) Chakra. It enhances confidence and survival instincts, allowing you to navigate tricky situations more easily. It is less well known for, but equally effective at, subtly bringing out love for life.

Jet = Commonly known as a grounding and protective crystal, Jet is also powerfully cleansing.  It slowly removes negative energies from your body, essentially reducing the hold that emotions such as fear and sadness can have over you. Combined with its ability to balance your yin and yang energies, Jet leaves you as steady and stable as possible for whatever may come.

Labradorite = radiates a magical quality, and is excellent for alchemical purposes.  By simultaneously enhancing your intuition and mental clarity, it allows you to envision multiple possibilities and find a path to the outcome of your choice.

Malachite = If you are ever emotionally exhausted, Malachite might be the perfect crystal to use. It balances your emotions, reducing negativity such as stress and tension while increasing positivity in the forms of hope and happiness.  With the final touches of boosting endurance and cleansing the aura, Malachite leaves you in a much better position than that which you started from.

Moonstone = When your emotions are too strong to think clearly and seem to take over your life Moonstone is the crystal you need. Unlike Malachite which supports emotional health in general, Moonstone is specifically geared towards helping you find inner peace.  As such it helps relieve stress, mitigates oversensitivity, and calms you down so your actions can come from a place of inner harmony.

Rhyolite = Promotes a strong body and soul connection within you.  Its wonderful earth energy grounds you in the physical while its deep soulful energy connects with you on a higher vibration. This facilitates change on the soul level so that you can find solutions to conditions on the physical world.

Rutilated Quartz = Rutilated Quartz has a fantastic higher vibration that supports spiritual growth. This is best facilitated by guiding the user towards truth. Recognizing the truth (whether it is an unbiased understanding of a situation or a personal truth) helps you understand why a particular transition is necessary; and that very action opens up doorways towards spiritual enlightenment.

Tree Agate = Another crystal very symbolic of its name, Tree Agate promotes positive attributes of trees within you. It helps you to remain calm, rooting you into clarity and logic rather than emotional overreactions. These “roots” in turn give you a strength and flexibility to persevere through all types of weather.

Watermelon Tourmaline = This crystal is exceptional for applying mental and emotional clarity to a transitional period of your life.  On a mental level it brings patience and understanding to learn and accept the who, what, when, where, and why of the situation.  Emotionally, it relieves stress and supports inner peace so you can move through this transition as painlessly and securely as possible.

Healer, Heal Thyself

“Even the least among you can do all that I have done, and greater things”
~ Jesus

I’m going to start with an excerpt from a video where Bentinho Massaro was talking about healing, “Healing doesn’t really exist as in one person healing another. It’s more that one person can offer a vibration or a conviction, frequency, or presence that the other person can then choose to be a match to or not. So, basically, we give them an example. By giving them an example, we make it easier for their minds to know what it’s like to surrender to this symbol, feel the energy you exude, see the way you act in life, and the way you think of life. Then people can choose to match what they now have as an example, where as, before that, they didn’t have an idea of it so it was harder for them to cultivate that for themselves. So healers basically bring in an example to the person who will then choose whether or not they want to step into alignment, what that feels like, and what that can look like for them. They use you as a symbol to tune into their own alignment. If they choose to do so, they will be healed. If they choose not to, they will not be healed. It’s a very simple, easy mechanism. Sure, you can set up a field or vibration that is conducive and that has the intention of their physical body healing, but, even if that happens temporarily, the symptoms will return if the core is not addressed and the person themselves, in their own way of thinking, is still out of alignment. They will still fall back to that prior realm of frequency, maybe take a little trip outside of it for a bit finding relief, and, if they have repeated trips outside of it, they can start to get used to it. In that sense, even repeated treating of the symptoms can sometimes be helpful, but they do need to make the conscious choice, on some level at least, that they wish to change their way of seeing life. Permanent healing will not occur until they do.”

This is why I focus on the emotional causes of your pain. It is actually good to have pain and stress because it gives you feedback on your life (it’s your higher self trying to communicate something to you). What I do is work on giving you more faith of the energetic realm, teach you how to use pain as your friend, and show you how to align yourself with your true nature and potential as energy beings. It’s about me being the example of how you can empower yourself. Using a special form of Qigong, I identify any energetic blockages in your body (since trauma and incorrect thinking leave energetic scars so to speak). These blockages keep you repeating the same destructive thought patterns and habits – essentially, keeping you from optimal wellness and success. I explain the meaning of the blockage, where it’s coming from, discuss options in addressing and healing it, then remove each blockage and seal it to keep it from returning (reset your neurotransmitters).

No matter the placebo – nutraceuticals, essential oils, pharmaceuticals, stones, art, energy work, music, etc. It’s just a way we convince ourselves and form a belief to enable us to heal, but, in actuality, whatever you believe is what will actually work for you. We can heal ourselves with a mere thought if we just believe it strongly enough. Please feel free to leave a comment below with any questions or feedback. Namaste.

RECOMMENDED ROCKS
FOR HEALING

Alexandrite = A must have, but is rare. This stone is said to balance the mind and bring peace in your life. Wearing this stone can even improve your blood circulation and strengthen your blood vessels. This stone is a favorite for gamblers, who carry or wear it to improve their chances of winning. The most amazing characteristic of Alexandrite is its ability to change colors. In sunlight, it will be a bluish-green, and under incandescent lights, this stone will be purplish red. It has also been said that while wearing Alexandrite, it will change colors according to your health.
Herkimer Diamonds = Will take you to the highest spiritual vibration possible. These diamonds can also strongly amplify the powers of other stones. This stone is also a very powerful emotional healer and may provide a boost to your immune system. Herkimer Diamonds are slightly rare, and it may be hard to find true Herkimer. The ones that you are more likely to find may be small, but will still be extremely powerful. If you are interested in purchasing one, I located one on Amazon for $32.95.

Shungite = A rare stone that was discovered in Karelia in Russia. The local residents were already aware of its powers. The water Shungite was found in was perfectly clean, and many that drank the water were healed of various illnesses and diseases. It is the only known natural material known to contain fullerenes, which are a special form of carbon containing powerful antioxidants. The scientists who discovered the fullerenes in Shungite received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1996. Shungite literally changes the structure of water, destroying bacteria and bringing healing properties. Scientists around the world are still exploring and studying Shungite, trying to understand its unique properties. Click here to learn how to use Shungite in your water.

Not just an excellent stone to use in your water, Shungite is excellent for protecting you from harmful EMF radiation emitted from all electronic and electric devices. I keep a stone next to my computer for this purpose. Shungite is also a calming stone that protects from negative energy. When healing your chakras, Shungite is an excellent grounding stone and best used with the base chakra.

Shungite is not too difficult to find, but genuine Shungite always comes from Russia.

John of God Crystals = Casa Crystals are imbued with the healing light and compassionate energy of the entities of Casa Dom Inacio, Abadiania, Brazil. For over 30 years, Medium Joao ("John of God") has been channeling these entities of light, love, compassion, and peace, bringing miraculous healings to millions of visitors.  All these stones have a similar healing energy, all provide benefits for your highest good, and all stones are equally powerful.  The stones that appeal to you are the stones that are best for your healing. If you love the clarity of the clear crystals, then those are the best stones for you.  If you love blue, then you will connect closely with the blue sodalite.  If green, or yellow, or smoky crystals draw you, then you should work with these stones. In addition to the Casa energy, each different mineral carries its own vibration.  For example, rose quartz is known for its heart-opening energy.  You can read more about the different vibrations carried by various minerals in books such as The Book of Stones, by Robert Simmons, which is an excellent resource.

 

You ARE Money

Everyone seems to want more money.  It’s the #1 reason couples fight.  It’s been known to be the root of all evil.  But I’d like to break something down simply so you can know the great creator you are.  Since everything, when broken down into its simplest form, is energy, this means money is just energy, right?   If everything is energy, that also means you and I are energy.  So, let’s see.  Money = me.  You’re just merely a reflection of one another.  Ever heard money only makes you more of what you are?  So true!  Quite literally.  The only real problem then is in the seeming separation just as in our relationships with others.  For example, upper class and lower class separates us just as any judgment.  Why is it we’re willing to pay to help out our family (those considered our blood), but less inclined to pay a friend’s bill?  When we choose, instead, to view relationships and money through God’s eyes, we will attract money and wonderful relationships into our lives exponentially with momentum.  Here are two exercises to help you cultivate both:

REALIZE THE ABUNDANCE IN WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE

Take whatever amount of money you have currently and list all the ways you could spend it.  Consider things you really want and think you can’t have and list creative ways you know you could actually get those things if you were creative enough, took the time, and took the effort to get them.  This will help you feel empowered that you could actually and truly have anything you want right here and right now… today!  Even if you only have $1.00 (and everyone does), think of all the ways you could spend it.  You could:

  • buy paperclips
  • buy toenail clippers
  • two candy bars
  • pay for a load of laundry
  • get enough gas to take you across town
  • give it away
  • take a bus
  • buy a notepad
  • buy a pen
  • buy a card for someone
  • buy some stamps
  • almost anything at a dollar store
  • a few copies at Staples
  • a song off Amazon
  • a really cheap used book
  • a can of soup, etc.

This way it becomes more about what you choose to spend it on rather than whether or not you can afford it.  And that’s with just ONE dollar!  Look at all that abundance… all those options!  Play this game with yourself and see what you come up with and feel GREAT about the money you do have.  Even money you owe can be viewed as abundance.  Learn to see it as that so you hold your vibration high around the subject of money.  See your debt as evidence of how truly supported you are that you have been able to provide yourself with so many wonderful things and don’t even need to pay it back yet.  It’s like God himself loaned you the money so you could enjoy your life now and know he will give you enough money to pay it all back if you just view every bit of it as positively as you can since we know like energy attracts like.

GIVE EVERYTHING AWAY AS IF EVERYONE ELSE IS YOU

Now this is the key most people miss.  The universe or God doesn’t differentiate one person from another and say this one is more important than that one.  He’s not up there taking a tally on who’s more deserving of his love or more money.  Energy flows much like water and goes with the past of least resistance. Therefore, when we choose to see giving to others as equal to giving to ourselves, we demonstrate not only our trust and faith in the money coming back to us tenfold (just as when we give to someone, it feels incredible), but we show the universe anything given to us won’t just stop there… it will flow unto all his children without discrimination!  You become a conduit for an outpouring of abundance.  And this giving doesn’t have to be financial.  I encourage you to make a list, therefore, of all the ways in which you give to show yourself proof and evidence that, indeed, you will continue to receive and be supported.

Here are some examples:

  • Spending money can be seen as abundance.  Spend!  You support the business, you pay those employees’ wages, and you support the community by spending money. Powerful!
  • Staying happy no matter your circumstances or situations that occur in your world.  Keeping your vibration high effects not only what you’re drawing to you, but everyone you interact with as well.  You become a light in your community effecting everyone indirectly and directly with your smile and radiant energy (including those who madden you).
  • Offer your services for free or exchange/trade services with someone.
  • If you are a receptionist and know of someone struggling to make a business get on it’s feet, volunteer to help them for an hour once a week answering phones, helping them get organized, help them be more efficient at their email correspondence, help with computer issues, etc.
  • Teach something on Facebook or in a public place that you know really well.  This will boost your confidence, help you feel good, make others feel good, and whatever you teach, you reinforce in yourself!  The teacher is also always a student as well.
  • Give something away instead of selling it.
  • If someone invites you to go do something, do it!  It’ll make them feel really good.  I had a client leave a session once then come back and few minutes later wanting to go look at a nativity scene.  I jumped on it and immediately went.  You just never know where life is leading you!  It turned out to be a wonderful time and, though I thought I didn’t have the time to do it, it ended up working out perfectly and my next door neighbor ended up buying me dinner and having it ready for me when I got home so saved me time making dinner!
  • Pet sit or house sit.  What pet owner doesn’t need this?  Then they can sit for you as well.
  • When you’re given food, give it away (not just to your FAMILY… give to friends & strangers)!
  • If you have extra money, give it to a friend who’s struggling.
  • If you owe a friend money, pay them back as soon as possible.
  • Don’t complain on Facebook… uplift!
  • Cultivate your chi by doing qigong daily.  When you cultivate and build your own energy up, you can help others around you as well.
  • Give friendly smile or perform a random act of kindness.  I love buying peoples’ groceries.
  • If someone is alone grocery shopping or have their hands full, offer to help them.

In the book "The Abundance Book" by John Randolph Price, he defines money as this: "Money is my own natural energy yield."
Natural = God-given, genuine, normal, an essential essence."
Energy = vigor of expression, cosmic forces (each is the very universe personified)
Yield = harvest, return, payment

So, money is my very essence, which when properly expressed, returns to me as an all-sufficiency of legal tender, to be used in exchange for goods and services.

Affirm this: "Through my consciousness of my God Self, the Christ within, as my Source, I draw into my mind and feeling nature the very substance of Spirit. This substance is my supply; thus, my consciousness of the Presence of God within me is my supply."

These are just a few ideas, but list all the ways you give on a daily basis and maybe even add some new ideas.  Always be thinking in terms of giving.  The more in-service-to-others minded we become, the more abundant and supportive our own lives become.  It’s just a natural law.  I dare you to try and prove this wrong!

RECOMMENDED ROCKS
TO ATTRACT MONEY

TURQUOISE = Thought to increase Wisdom. An old ritual utilized Turquoise to gain wealth: Perform this rite a few days after the New Moon when the crescent is first visible in the sky. Avoid looking at the Moon until the proper time. Hold a Turquoise in your hand. Visualize your magical need -- money -- manifesting in your life. Move outside and look at the Moon. Then directly shift your gaze to the Turquoise. The magic has begun. Carry the stone with you until the money arrives.
CITRINE + PYRITE = These two are often used together to create powerful manifestation. Pyrite is very grounding and protective as well as being a great tool for manifestation.  They both (together or separately) draw happiness, creativity, and power to those who use it with intention.  Citrine is especially used to manifest abundance and money.  Hold one piece in each hand during meditation and you can also choose a particular affirmation or visualization to focus upon. Citrine has been called the "merchant stone."   It assists in both acquiring and maintaining wealth.
ROSE QUARTZ = Assists natural power and ability to create, focuses your attention on prosperity and abundance, helps attracts abundance of all kinds, promotes lighter, happier attitudes, reminds you to act on your dreams with trust, reminds you that there is always more coming, and assists in erasing "I can't do it" thoughts and feelings.

RED GARNET = A stone that brings productivity along with the characteristics of happiness and abundance.  Garnets can bring prosperity in your career. Particularly good for women for business or career success. 

FLUORITE = Innovative and inventive, it is a highly effective “brain” stone, allowing you to use your creativity to build wealth. Particularly good for women in career combined with Garnet. 

CARNELIAN = brings Action and Motivation. It is the most powerful "Call - to-Action" stone for focusing, realization and self-actualization of dreams and goals.   Like Moss Agate, it stimulates analytical capabilities and precision, and also helps to revel your hidden or latent talents by stimulating your curiosity and inquisitiveness. 

JADE = Has been considered an Abundance stone for centuries. 

BLACK JADE = Helps us to control our greed or need for control by instilling wisdom in the use of personal power.

BLOODSTONE = Inspires harmony through prosperity consciousness and a willingness for abundance.  Instills the courage to follow your dreams. 

RUBY = The energy here stimulates wealth and provides protection so that your wealth never departs.

TOPAZ = Known as the stone of "love and success in all endeavors" accomplished by releasing doubts and trusting in the universe.  Topaz opens the door to unlimited opportunities by helping you to understand the cycle of giving and receiving.   You attract prosperity and abundance with this stone and then manifest it.

TIGER EYE = Is here to stimulate wealth and prosperity and once gained help you retain it. As a power stone Tiger Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting people that can help you in your career or goals, wealth, money & luck.  A grounding stone that guides you in creating the stability needed to maintain your wealth.

GREEN TOURMALINE = Channels and uses personal energy for the accomplishment of goals, especially in the area of creativity and prosperity.

OPAL = Promotes the ability to both earn and retain money.

PYROMORPHITE = This stone brings a freshness in attitude as it stimulates your personal power. It attracts money or energy in the form of goods.

IOLITE = With all the money you will be attracting you may not need this stone.  Iolite works well in the elimination of debt.

MOSS AGATE = Strength and beauty in all you do comes with this stone that also has been known to attract prosperity and riches into your life.

AMETHYST = Helps your business affairs prosper, and encourages the spiritual side of your life, where you begin to share your abundance, success and opportunity with others.
PERIDOT = Is the Money Stone.  Wear it to draw money and opportunity your way.  Put Peridot in your cash box along with Citrine. Peridot will help to draw money to you, and Citrine will help to keep it once you get it!  Stimulates opportunity, improves your leadership skills and helps you respond to challenges on an instinctive level - allowing you to make quick, confident decisions.  Wonderful motivation - action stone for entrepreneurs and the self employed who have that pioneering -  "Go get 'emSpirit!".  Aventurine is a Luck and Chance stone, drawing Universal forces to turn the tie in your favor.
