Health, meditation and creativity all get a boost from rocking chairs

Have you ever wondered why we automatically/instinctively rock babies? Rocking is a rhythmic movement that not only soothes infants, but also is soothing for adults. So, why did we stop rocking as we grew up? Whatever the reason, perhaps it’s time to revisit an old friend.

Rocking chairs have been around for several hundred years. They may not be currently trendy, but rockers have survived the test of time. During US president, John F. Kennedy’s time in office, the rocking chair’s popularity soared. Why? Back when he was a senator, JFK’s doctor prescribed a rocking chair, along with swimming to help ease his chronic back pain. The rocking chair was so helpful to JFK that he always brought one with him wherever his presidential travels took him.

Going beyond back pain, the rocking chair offers the following physical benefits:

  1. ARTICULATES THE JOINTS – The movement of rocking articulates (rhythmically moves) all the joints of the foot. Helping to “oil “the joint by improving the production of joint fluid, and by improving blood supply to the area. Also helps movement of toes, feet, ankles, knees, and even hips.
  2. REDUCES CONSTIPATION – Studies have shown that rocking can have an impact on gut mobility, reducing constipation.
  3. REDUCES OEDEMA – The action of rocking causes the calf muscles to contract and release, acting like a “mini heart” pushing blood and fluid back up to the heart. This can help to reduce Oedema(swelling) and the production of varicose veins.
  4. REDUCE FALLS – It can also help with proprioception (the sense of where your body is in space) and balance and may help reduce the tendency to falls.
  5. NATUAL PAINKILLERS – Rocking also stimulates the body to produce natural painkillers (Endorphins).

For those looking for either a new or additional method for meditation, the rocking chair is a great option to try. Set up your meditation routine as you normally would, and rock yourself to a calm, relaxing place of peace. If you are new to meditation, rocking for a duration of 15 to 30 minutes a day is an easy goal to achieve.

The ‘CREATIVES’ – a new generation of rocking chair enthusiasts?

We all know that creative ideas generally come to us when we’re relaxed. And we also know that rocking in a rocking chair is very relaxing. So could it be that rocking chairs equal creativity? The publication, Scientific American says that when our minds wander, as they tend to in rocking chairs, the gentle rhythmic motion can “actually foster creativity.”

*What a surprising way to inspire creativity; to just let our minds wander while rocking in an old-fashioned rocking chair. If you haven’t already, maybe it’s time to add one of these creativity enhancing chairs to your backyard, camping gear, home or workspace.

*From providing an additional form of meditation everyone can enjoy, along with many health benefits to boosting creativity, the respectful rocking chair will always be there for us.

You are loved, shine brightly!

Get back to earth

Keep it simple!

I’m always sharing information with my clients assisting them with challenges or questions they have regarding how to live their best life….finances, relationships, business, pregnancy, health etc.

My philosophy is…..keep things as simple as possible. 

I would like to introduce a practice to you that is easy and quick. Our bodies and minds will known what to do with energy from the earth!

What is ‘earthing’?

Walking or having bare-feet contact the ground, also known as “earthing,” has gone from being a kooky counter-culture trend, to a scientifically-researched practice with a number of remarkable health advantages, such as increasing antioxidants , reducing inflammation, and improving sleep.

Earthing means walking or placing feet barefoot on soil, grass or sand (meaning: any natural surface). 

Early studies are showing that the health benefits come from the relationship between our bodies and the electrons in the earth. The planet has its own natural charge, and we seem to do better when we’re in direct contact with it.

Our beautiful days of warm sunny weather are here, let’s get out ….take those shoes off and soak up some electrons!

Have a great day, get out and shine brightly!

Do they exist? Who are they? What’s their purpose?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had my own and seen other people’s imaginary friends. I didn’t realize they were imaginary until I was told “time to stop talking to and about your friends”; however, they never went away.

Growing up during the 60’s – 80’s was very different than it is today. It’s becoming more and more acceptable; people are opening up and excited about their imaginary friends!

I’ve been sharing messages for the past 37 years, officially starting my Intuitive Consultant business 20 years ago.

Communicating with your Guides

For me, these Guides look very similar to us, and stand on our right-side. They’ve told me for years that on the other side we are all 30 years old. When I ask why, they simply answer “because”.  I figured there’s got to be a better answer, so I’ve asked countless times and they always give me the same answer. They love describing what they look like and some of their personality traits. Often times, I find the person I’m reading has very similar traits, enjoys hearing this information, can relate, and often will say “that explains so much”!

It doesn’t matter what sort of communication we have with our Guides, seeing, sensing, feeling, hearing or having an inkling about them; they are beside us watching and guiding in all areas of our lives.

Feel free to talk to them (out loud or in your mind), give them a nickname! They love that; ask for assistance with anything and everything; nothing is off limits, big or small.

I always get a great parking spot, just sayin!

What is a Spirit Guide?

Once I started Reading people professionally, I figured that referring to their Guides as “Imaginary Friends” probably wouldn’t lend to my credibility. So I replaced the term with “Spirit Guides” clumping together all “spirits” who “guide” or help us.

*Not including Angels, Archangels, Guardian Angels, Loved Ones, God or Creator in this mix, they are completely different. I will address them at a later time.

There are countless different spirit guides who are helping us throughout this lifetime, popping in and out of our lives when needed.  It could be for seconds, minutes or days; depending on what they are here to help us with at that time. They can come and go for an unlimited amount of times throughout our lives.

Who are Go-2-Guides?

Our “Go-2-Guides” are very different; they’re dedicated to us 24/7, 365 days a year from the time we select them. The first order of business, even prior to writing our Divine Agreement, is selecting our Go-2-Guide. They sit with us during the writing of our Divine Agreement.

To qualify for the position of a Go-2-Guide, that soul (individual) has to have lived at least once (65 years ) on Earth. This is necessary in order for them to have a good understanding of what it’s like here and how difficult it’s going to be at times for their assignment (human beings).

They are under contract, promising our Divine Agreement and souls will be protected on their watch; even in those hard or troubling times, they are right beside us. They will assist us with completing, as much as possible, both positive and negative experiences even though (in most cases) we will not remember who they are and how they want to help us with everything.

They’re continually scanning our Agreements, putting circumstances, people, events and situations in our paths/lives, assisting us with completing the multitude of positive and negative experiences we’ve written into our agreements.

Why I address them as Go-2-Guides

My Guide and many others started suggesting to me that they wanted to be identified separately from all the other Spirit Guides. All Spirit Guides are very important because life on Earth requires a lot of assistance. Our personal Guide’s role is very different, based on the fact that they are here for us 24/7 from the moment we meet including when the time comes to transition back to the other side and cross over. (I will share specific details regarding their role at a later date). For these reasons, the more we ask for their assistance and talk to them, the happier they are. Asking for assistance with everything in our lives, gives them more opportunities to show us that we do have helpers/imaginary friends and they are here for us.

Our personal Guides want us to Go-2-them for assistance with everything, including the day to day things we do here; preparing food, cleaning, chores, driving, relationships, raising children, being social, exercising, creating, working, education, traveling, building, praying, music, sleeping, manifesting, etc.

And so the phrase Go-2-Guides was coined…

Our Guides are excited to speak with us!

It’s always so much fun for me to experience the excitement of your Go-2-Guide during your sessions.

They are like kids walking through the gates at Disneyland. Imagine having a best friend who you could never communicate with, even though you tried every day of your life, then someone shows up that can relay all the things you’ve been trying to say all those years!! Its euphoria for your guides to share with you and I have the privilege of witnessing that communication first hand from both parties. Some people’s guides don’t wait for their appointment to start, they’re here before, following me around, giving me all kinds of instructions on; the-how-to’s of communicating messages and how important this information is. I giggle and joke with them, this isn’t my first rodeo! LOL

Message from our Guides

Our Go-2-Guides all have their own personalities just like we do; I find that there are many similarities between the person I’m Reading and their Guide. I believe we have selected this individual based on the person we are in this lifetime.

A common message from Go-2-Guides is to have more fun in our lives, dance, sing, socialize, gather together, be creative or whatever brings a smile to your face, heart and soul. Get out and try new things; even if you think you might not like it.  As long as you’re not putting yourself in harm’s way, we are here to experience the many wonders and beauty of Earth. Get out and explore!

They love accompanying us at all times through the ups and downs of life; because we are here to experience negative events and circumstances, the times we’re laughing, engaging our inner child, having fun and playing is the best therapy ever, for us and for our Guides to witness. We have officially been giving permission to allow our inner child out on a regular basis.

Let’s all make a list of 10 things we enjoy doing/would like to try and start playing again!

Shine Brightly!

February the month of “Love”

Love…

A word used by many, but understood by few

It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without!

We think about it, sing about it, dream about it, lose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t have it, we search for it; when we discover it, we don’t know what to do with it; and when we have it, we fear losing it.

So many different kinds of love; friends, family, children, siblings and pets, the list goes on.

Such emphasis on Romantic Love on Valentines Day…….

How would your life change if we focused on being more loving, kind and grateful with ourselves and all those people in our lives all month long!!

Here’s to being more Loving!

Have a wonderful February
