What are your treasures? I just wanted to do a personal, catch up, share post. Obviously my best treasures are my family, friends and loved ones, but also health; spiritual, emotional, and physical. However this isn’t a deep philosophical post, it is about my charity shop finds. I set up some pictures on my Photobucket so you all can peek inside my world. lol The album is called iPhone pics, as that is where they come from. lol One of my summer’s guilty pleasures is shopping for treasures. Check out the photo story and I will tell you about my finds.
Browsing in the book section, as I do, I saw these, the Harmony Angel Cards, I counted them, 48, yep that sounds right, so I bought them. The pale green cover certainly was not an indicator of what was inside. The art of some of the cards is outstanding, and the words that describe them are profound and timely. Both my iChing and card readings have been telling me how to handle a vast abundance. Yeah, okay! I am all ears on how to honor this vast abundance. 😀
The two books are two of probably 20 or more books I have gotten at the various charity shops. Some good finds. The Isaiah Effect, by Gregg Braden, and Fermat’s Enigma, by Simon Singh. I have also gotten a great hardback of Jung’s, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Virgil’s, Aeneid, and much much more.
Then there is this trio of ceramic ???, kachina’s, cave painting alien’s??? The big green guy is missing an ear, or antenna, or whatever it is? I am going to wabi sabi it. These guys intrigue me. Any ideas on what they are?
Next is my cute small, hand painted, and carved Indian Fakir. I had an empty spot just waiting for him to show up. Then some pretty cloud pictures I took last week before our summer set in for real.
Final picture is of the Burning Bowl Ceremony I did alone in the garden at the full moon.
I have maintained my daily qigong practice but the mirror work was a wash. I was so uncomfortable with it, I know I have to give it another go.
I recently attended a great Sound Healing with Paradiso and Rasamayi, some phenomenal didgeridoos. Whoa! When they say drink lots of water, listen. Jeanette is also doing a Gong & Crystal Bowl Sound Bath, and meditation, for the Solstice.
Have a great Summer Solstice everyone, Here is a great article on the Summer Solstice.
Namaste & Peace

Here is a post for the Let’s Go Retro Blogging Challenge!
Renewed and refreshed. It has been way too long since I have practiced Qigong on a daily basis. I have wanted to do so but…. haven’t. So today I meet Tashi my new Qigong teacher. Tashi is an an Internal Martial Artist and energy cultivator since ‘95. Tashi had study Auricular Medicine, Cranial Sacral, DNA Reprogramming, Light Body’s, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Meditation under a number of exceptional masters in their fields.
What a great class. Feeling the Chi once again coarsening through my body. Now to reestablish the discipline to continue everyday.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe.
Here is a video, 11 minutes of instruction, movements starts at 11 minutes.

I would love your contribution
I was watching this film The Cosmic Giggle, which is really cool. Amazing visuals of going inside a kaleidoscope, or living fractals. In this film there is a guy in shadow speaking as one of the interviewees, Lujan Matus. I became intrigued, so I went further down the reasearch rabbit hole to his website, Parallel Perception. Which I have been receiving newsletters from for years, but I had no idea what they were. Funny stuff. He is an author, a shaman, teacher and seer. I don’t know if he is a Kung Fu, or Qigong Master but he moves like one? Lujan Matus teaches his technique in the Bahamas, yes, I am in for that! Aleya want to go meet Lujan? lol I just imagined us going to the Bahamas to meet and work with a cool shaman, that is in my vortex, (sorry folks inside joke, unless you read all she and I write between our blogs?) 😀
Here are some videos of Lujan Matus performing his Kung-Fu techniques in the dark. I am certain that I must begin and cultivate my Qigong practice. Cultivating chi, is so powerful, and magical.
In the daylight~
Meditation tonight…..Enjoy your day!
This is Season 3, Week 2 of Dungeon Prompts, the prompt, The Healing Arts. I love that these prompts make me think. lol I have no idea what to say. It is funny as I have studied so many healing modalities for the last 20 plus years, but I never considered myself a healer, nor did I practice, yet I always took the class, or workshop. I loved Qigong and I was even certified as a Medical Qigong Practitioner, yet never planned a practice. I enjoyed the shen generated from my chi cultivation. I never really understood why I studied the healing arts. I don’t think I actually believed that healing worked that way. Can a healer affect wellness on a sick human, animal, plant? Well I don’t know.
A friend of mine in LA, also a Qigong Practitioner was going to see Jon of God in Brazil, she wasn’t ill but interested in the healing most likely? I ask her to take my picture, I wasn’t ill either at least not physically. I was sitting at my desk and I felt a ball of energy enter my solar plexus, where it remained for at least 30 minutes. I had no doubt that was from that request for healing, and I was just curious. I never took the placebo pills she brought me from there and they bumped around making noise in my red hand painted Indian cabinet for years after. I am not joking, I threw them away when I moved. It was just interesting.
Now I have a different take on healing. What I do now is just facilitate intention and energy flow to clients, friends, and family, via Reiki, or Angel Light Healing. I am just a conduit of intention and energy flow. It just feels light, like sending love. I enjoy being a part of the flow. I also believe now that the more we remember our true nature, and our vast timelessness, the more we go quantum in our thinking, the greater opportunities we have to affect healing in our spirit, mind and body.
When I need to lift myself from an emotional funk, I listen to Abraham, I eat something flavorful, and I go into gratitude. Nothing makes you feel better than gratitude, in my opinion.
I know that my Healing Arts training will continue as there are several other systems I plan to be initiated into….so it goes~
Namaste and much love
PS: I recommend a Reiki Bear, mine is swell~
