All I Really Want is…

As some of you know a recent ultrasound revealed a small mass between my uterus and cervix. As with most illnesses, relationship issuesmeditation and mental or emotional crisis, this is a call to heal. Over the past several days I’ve looked with eyes of love and peace at old wounds of the past, angers and hurts which still hold a sad or angry ache of victim.

This evening’s walk to the river was magical in the fading light of dusk. The river is a bit swollen with the melting snow, swirling and shimmering. The trees along the bank now have their toes in the water. This is a place where realizations happen in a flash. There has been turmoil in my life recently which provided much healing. I have asked myself often, “what do I really want” ?

Sitting at the rivers edge I begin to merge into the magical existence. Every time I think of my uterus I’ve been going into the sacred heart so as to only view it with Love. The merging continues. The thought arises. The experience enfolds me “all I really want is to be the love that I am”. This is my life’s purpose

 

Unseen Blessings Can Be A Headache

On the eve of the New Moon over the Christmas Holy Days of 2011 I asked the Universe that my entire inner being be aligned in Harmony, Love and Light and that this “me being”, be in alignment with all the Divine, all of the great IS.

 

A few days later I developed a massive headache that went on for well over three days. As I was driving home on the third day of headache-hell I considered I could work on whatever issues may be arising causing me such pain. I began watching my thoughts as I moved through the process. As I sat drinking my morning coffee I found I was afraid. So many fears… afraid my father had abandoned me. This was the central theme. He had helped me financially recently and then went on a tirade (at least in my mind/head) about how I didn’t deserve help because I smoke cigarettes and eat meat… the fear was multifaceted.

 

I thought angry thoughts about my father who had always had the ability to “make” me feel I was bad, no good and unlovable. Then I got to thinking if someone, anyone, could really “make” me feel or think anything I didn’t want to think or feel. So stretching a bit on this thought I chose to decide that dear ole Dad was NOT “making” me think or feel anything. If I was thinking or feeling something, I could take responsibility for my own thinking and feelings.

 

The core feeling and thoughts I was having in my headache misery were that the Universe was abandoning me, I wasn’t loved or lovable and I was all alone. These were old, deeply rooted patterns of self-defeating thoughts.  Intellectually I know quite well that this is not true but distorted thinking was rampart.

 

So I sat drinking my coffee, relaxed a bit and let the Universe love me, shower me with love, sooth me with love, comfort me with love, support me with love, holding me safely in Its arms and providing for all my needs. All I had to do was allow this and I did. Within moments the headache vaporized.

 

I began to look around and see so many realities of just how much the Universe was loving me and supporting me and gratitude overcame me with sweet relief and I loved greatly in return.

 

As the morning went on and a disparaging thought came up for my father I realized he was my gift. The answer to my New Moon wish and these were my hidden thoughts brought to light and healed with love and I was overcome with love and gratitude for my earthly father.

 

This reminded me of a beautiful prayer “Thank you for the blessings before me which I cannot see”

 

Am I Dreaming?

Am I Dreaming?

It was a beautiful spring morning on Saturday April 13, 2003. Stepping into the sunshine on the patio, I lovingly admired the beautiful and promising bedding plants ready for the flower garden. Appreciating each plant, the layout of this year’s flowers began unfolding in my imagination. Little did I know at that moment, the plantings would never occur and life was to be turned upside down. A car accident was about to occur, not far from home.

After writing this first paragraph I have to pause to regain my center of peace. It’s an uneasy feeling looking those “pre-moments”, just before the accident, so squarely in the eye. Recalling the contentment and joy of that morning and things never to be done again, or at least not for many years to come, still elicits a profound feeling of loss.

As a result of the accident and the injury sustained I was unable to work and in quick order, lost everything, gaining a life of unrelenting pain. The physical agony continued unabated for nearly two years. The grief of losing that life style lasted a whole lot longer. The present was born out of that anguish. Today is bright, hopeful, filled with love and healing for me and others.

I waited years for a financial settlement from the accident. This money was to recreate and rebuild my life after its devastation.   I was free to move anywhere on the planet and this provided a great deal of pleasure-full dreaming. I dreamed myself on the Fiji islands, Hawaii, Taos, Oregon, Berkeley Springs and Asheville. Dreams of building and living in a yurt and having a healing retreat center in nature where people would come for a day or a week to immerse in nature and the healing arts – Divine dreams.

Now, on to reality. The financial settlement suites filed by my attorney gave me great hope for the money to fulfill these dreams but as the mediation went on, each call from my lawyers the numbers kept falling and my dreams downgraded. I enjoyed each stage of my dreams, allowing myself to be fully immersed and yet not attached. I thought I was unattached. With each phone call and monetary decrease the potential of my dreams changed from a retreat center in the beginning to now looking like a used RV. Actually it was fun dreaming that one too.

With yet another call from my attorneys, overwhelmed and in despair, I ran outside and shouted to the sky “I am so sick and tired of feeling sorry for myself, telling my sorrowful story and living in fear. No more!” “I am doing my best. It’s in God’s hands.”

The Universe tenderly responded. “Its OK, we are going to give you a house”. I was floored and began immediately wondering who in the world would give someone, me specifically, a house? Once again the Universe said “No, no, the Universe is giving you the house, but it will come through someone”

How the Universe gave me a house and a new life…to be continued next month

Cold and Flu Remedy

Cold and Flu Remedy

I posted this home remedy last year and here it is again cold and flu season. This is my personal remedy which works wonders for me. The ingredient can be purchased at any pharmacy and most grocery stores.

At the first signs of a cold, flu or even a cold sore or herpes outbreak take three – 500 mgs of L-Lysine with a tall glass of room temperature water then 1 – 500 mgs of L-Lysine every hour with a tall glass of room termperature water for one day. If there are any remaining symptoms the following day, repeat regime for one more day. Do not let your feet touch the cold floor even to go to the bathroom. Wear slippers, keep those tootsies warm if you are getting sick.

NOTE: If you do not drink a minimum of 8 oz of water with each dose, it will not work. The water is as essential as is the l-lysine.

Years ago I had a cold sore coming on and a pharmacist recommended this regime and it stopped the cold sore in its tracks. I later found out that flu and colds were in the same family of viruses as cold sores. I haven’t had a cold or flu since I began taking this at the onset of any symptoms.

I’m not making any promises, just sharing what has worked so well for me, my family and friends.

L-Lysine is an Amino Acid  and can be purchased at any drugstore and most grocery stores in the vitamins and supplements section.

NOTE: I am not a medical doctor and do not intend to prescribe a treatment for you. I am sharing my own personal experience. Check with your doctor or health practitioner before beginning taking any supplements. I do not know what the dosages might be appropriate for children.

When Your Numbers Up

By Shafiya Eve

In my early 20’s I was in a violently abusive relationship. Living in a perpetual state of fear with the threat, if I left, my family would be killed, I was beaten, stabbed and on more than one occasion had a gun put to my head and the trigger cocked.

It was a Saturday afternoon in 1976 when a girlfriend called and invited me to a psychic party. I had never been to one and didn’t believe in psychics. My friend pleaded, she had promised this psychic woman a certain number of people would be at this party and someone had no-showed. I went.

When it came my turn, I was flippant and not at all forthcoming. Finally the psychic woman looked at me and said “I see something and I’m not sure whether to share it with you or not”.

I retorted “You may as well tell me because you are never going to see me again”

The woman said “I see you death and it is exceedingly brutal”

A wave of relief washed over, this living hell was going to end. Maintaining my flippant attitude I replied “When your number’s up, your numbers up”.

The psychic gave me a good hard look and said. “No no honey, that’s not the way it works. This is happening to you because you are letting it happen. This guy is playing Gestapo with you and you just have to learn to play Gestapo better.”

It took 24 hours for me to realize that if I did nothing death was imminent as the degree of violence had been accelerating. I finally pulled up my bootstraps and decided, if I was going to die, I was going down fighting!

I secretly recorded conversations of this guy threatening to burn down a building for the insurance. Then waited until this next beating, it didn’t take long. I went to the police, black and blue and pressed charges. I then left town for a week, whereabouts unknown, with a note on the table to my abuser that there was a warrant for his arrest and that the tapes of his conversations existed and were in a safe place. If anything happened to me, the tapes would be delivered to the police. To make a long story short, it  has a happy ending.

I have a purpose in sharing this. Recently a client with a progressive neurological illness came to me. He is in an abusive relationship and the illness started just after the relationship began. No matter my approach this client would hear nothing of and rebuffed all attempts that this situation could change. “It’s just the way it is” was his response. He sees no way out, but his body does. As I thought of him during my morning prayers the above memory flashed in. It was a message to me.

Our bodies are the sum total of our beliefs and constantly call for our highest healing and total freedom. Life is never “just the way it is”. It is always the way it is according to our beliefs and our will or lack thereof. There is always a door to freedom if we can just open I minds to it, it will appear.

Inner Peace in Five Weeks

Inner Peace in Five Weeks By Shafiya Eve

Peace is your natural state of being. How do you regain you real inheritance of love, joy and peace? Here is a five week program that will amaze you and change your life. You have nothing to lose except your fear and anxieties in life and it only takes ten minutes a day.

First, decide you want peace. Second, set as your true priority a time every day, preferably in the morning to meditate and or pray. Ten minutes is just fine, more is good too. Third, read something uplifting each day.

Week One – Gratitude: Look for every reason to be grateful. Let the gratitude move from your head to your heart. Get really creative, you have a whole week to explore the myriad opportunities to be grateful. This changes your outlook and the miracles will begin to unfold.

Week Two – Love: Love is our life’s purpose. Learning to love ourselves and others is the key to opening all the doors to your possibilities. This week practice loving everyone you come across, including yourself! Practice extending love where ever you are and whatever you are doing. Hold a space of love for everyone you encounter, a smile, a nod. You will feel this love radiating back to you filling you with glowing warmth. One of the outcomes of this practice is a loss of unnecessary fear and a powerful sense of happiness.

Week Three – Positivity: The most important of all factors in your life is the mental thoughts you live on. It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life. Monitor your thoughts this week and choose new positive thoughts to replace any negative thoughts. This will be easier than you might imagine, you have already been preparing yourself for this with Weeks One and Two practices. You will be uplifted with a surge of confidence.

Week Four – Generosity: the more we share, the more we have, it is a universal law. This week go out of your way to do unto others, as you would have others do unto you. Be creative in ways to be there for people. This will help you to remember your true nature, experience peace and create a wave of love and happiness that will spread and multiply though out the world.

Week Five – All Together Now: If you are not already amazed, you will be! Prepare for the true essence of inner peace to empower you and the world around you. This week practice all four practices simultaneously. After this, what will you do for an encore?

Distance Healing “These things ye shall do and more”

Distance Healing “These things ye shall do and more”

By Shafiya Eve

We were on the phone. I reached into the thin air and could feel her energy field and the disturbances which I began clearing, using my hands… Mary (not her real name) had called to cancel her attendance at the following day’s workshop I was giving. She had just returned from the doctor’s office with severe kidney and sinus infections.

Accepting Mary’s cancellation, I asked if she was interested in doing some energy healing over the phone to ease her discomfort. Mary agreed saying she might as well, for she had already canceled her evening plans because of her illness. I led her through tapping on her meridians to clear her energy pathways and began working in her energy field with my hands, doing Reiki for her. Mary exclaimed she could feel the energy moving over her just like she does when she’s in my office. By the end of our phone session, Mary’s urinary tract infection and sinus symptoms were all gone. As it turned out, Mary was able to go about her evening plans and attended the following day’s workshop, feeling and looking great!

Jill (not her real name) came to see me for a Reiki/EFT session recently and immediately asked me to use the distance meridian tapping to heal her dog, Pucci (not her real name). Pucci had been having trouble with a terrible cough, and Jill was beside herself with worry. We began by tapping on Jill and then we moved into a visualization of Pucci the dog, surrounding her in a bubble of golden loving healing light. Jill, the person felt better. Several days later Jill emailed that when she returned home, Pucci no longer had a cough and hadn’t coughed since.

A woman recently called from out of town and asked how distance healing worked. My response was “I don’t know, but it does.” After our session by phone, she wrote “I have to say that I continue to enjoy the levity and liberation I experienced after our session on Wednesday. I so enjoy your energy and feel a kindred connection with you. I’m really looking forward to our next session.”

All kinds of philosophical answers could be given. The one that resonates for me is that we are all one and connected by a Universal Divine Energy I call God. In the Bible Jesus healed a man’s daughter from afar. Jesus said, “These things ye shall do and more.” I’m just following guidance and believing that’s true.

I don’t do the healing but rather create a space so that others can connect with their divine source and come into alignment with it and therein lies all healing.

Miracles are the normal order of Life. If Miracles are not happening, something is wrong. ACIM

Letting go


Bookmark and Share

As I brushed my dog this morning with mounds of fur flying, the thought occurred to me how this thick fur had served her so well during the cold winter months and how much she enjoyed being outside as a result. That fur was perfect in it’s time but now was no longer an asset to her well-being.

So it may well be with many things in our lives that have served us well but no longer apply to continued growth, health and properity. To allow the past to fly away with gratitude of how well it has served us in the past without regret. Sending the old off with blessings onto its next highest evolution, maybe a birds nest.

Hugs and Peace

Who’s Making Your Decisions?

Who’s Making Your Decisions?

Have you ever been amazed at your over-reaction to something an event or someone’s behavior? The emotions experienced may be anger, anxiety, numbness or fear for no apparent reason. What is the process that goes on internally, seemingly unconsciously that causes an inappropriate or over-reaction?

When we have traumas or repetitive negative experiences it is not unusual to get “stuck”. As long as we are “stuck” we will continue to have experiences that push those buttons, we become magnets for pain. The real purpose of this pain is to guide us to healing.

Mike (not his real name) came to see me to work on his difficulty in having a meaningful relationship. Mike was always backing off as soon as a deeper bond began to form. We explored Mike’s childhood for root causes. One experience Mike remembered to be quite painful was with his earliest sweet heart, we’ll call her Suzie. At the age of fifteen Mike was having his first emotional and physically intimate relationship. On a particular date Suzie, in tears confesses that Mike was not her “first”. Mike was devastated. There were a lot of aspects to this, we focused on the sense of betrayal Mike felt and decisions he made at fifteen about life and relationships that were still ruling his life at age fifty. His decisions were that no one could be trusted in a relationship and if he gave his heart he would be deeply wounded. The memory of this teenage experience was still painful when clearly recalled. Using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) we released the pain and in came compassion, understanding and freedom from a life decision made at an early age.

At the age of five I was molested. I assure you, even at that age or any age for that matter, we are capable of making lifelong decisions. Until I began the process (it is a process) of healing, a five year olds decisions about myself and life where ruling me. What was most interesting to me was, I didn’t remember the event until I was in my mid-thirties. It is rather common for someone not to remember a traumatic experience from an early age until later in life. It is nature’s way of protecting us until we are better able to process such an event. Even without remembering the experience I was still bound and ruled by my five year olds experience and decisions about myself and life. It was evident in my actions and reactions.

So who is running your life and making your decisions? When clients come who have had traumatic experiences at any age and made decisions about life, I often ask if they would consult children to make their decisions for them today?
