venusmars2Early April is a wonderful time to make a long term commitment in marriage or business because the Venus, the planet of love, is poised exactly half way between Sun and Mars, thus the masculine and feminine forces are united in perfect harmony. It is a great time to change the way you relate to others in your life. Focus on a balance between giving and receiving at this time, and love and commitment in particular!

smudging2Smudging is the common name given to the Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing, a powerful Native American cleansing technique. It is a ritual to remove negativity. Smoke ...attaches itself to the negative energy and removes it to another space. Cleansing is the word traditionally used, but you can think of it as a shift in energy from any bits of negativity to a more positive, peaceful state. Smudging can be used to cleanse an object, a place, or your spirit, mind or body. Native Americans often use smudging in association with other ceremonies.
 
Smudging involves the burning of sacred herbs and grasses. Native elders teach us that, before a person can be healed or heal another, one must be cleansed of any bad feelings, negative thoughts, bad spirits or negative energy – cleansed both physically and spiritually. This helps the healing to come through in a clear way, without being distorted or sidetracked by negative “stuff”. The elders say that all ceremonies, private or tribal, must be entered into with a good heart so that we can pray, sing and walk in a sacred manner, and be helped by the spirits to enter the sacred realm.
 
In many traditions, smudging involves a four directions ceremony or prayer. It, thus, sends specific kinds of smoke or prayer into the four different directions. Of course, different tribes have different smudging prayers, but the smoke is typically directed or programmed to do a specific action or a specific direction, aiding in divination. However, in general smudging is used to maintain balance and shield against negative energy. As has been noted above, it is often used as a cleansing agent.
 
Smudging is an age-old tribal tradition which has been used for centuries to create harmony and peace. There are many different shamanic smudging ceremonies, and different tribes use a variety of herbs for smudging. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to do it.
 
Smudging is very effective when you’ve been feeling depressed, angry, resentful or unwell, or after you have had an argument with someone; if you’re going to have a special ritual or ceremony, as part of a general spiritual housecleaning, or to clear your crystals of any negative energy.
 
You can use smudge sticks (herbs that are tied into a bundle for easier handling), braided herbs and botanicals (like sweetgrass) or loose herbs like mugwort (burned on charcoal or in a firepot). Shamanic smudging releases the energy and fragrance of the herbs and botanicals so they can heal, cleanse and purify...See more
mattdamonPromised Land is the new contemporary drama directed by Gus Van Sant who also directed Good Will Hunting.. Matt Damon plays Steve Butler, an ace corporate salesman who is sent accompanied by his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), to close a key rural town in his company's expansion plans to drill the area for Coal Seam Gas. 
 
The rural town has been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years so the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company's offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems initially like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski), as well as the interest of a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt). 
 
Promised Land explores America at the crossroads where big business and the strength of small-town community converge, and is particularly important in Australia too as the controversy over Coal Seam Gas is rising. 
This movie shows the extreme methods large corporations go to white-wash consumers and poor land holders into signing away their rights and their livelihood. It is a sobering movie that everyone should see in order to gain insights into the corporate mind.
 
Many of you may have also seen the documentary “Gasland” which also outlined the horrendous destruction of our farm lands for corporate greed. 
We live in sad and challenging times and it seems that the dark-side of the human psyche is controlling much of our lives. Sadly, you will discover that this movie is not easy to find, despite the fact that it is well produced and has well known actors. It seems the face-less corporate bodies have tried to repress and suppress this movie... So I urge you to find a cinema where it is showing and if not, find the DVD or download it... It is a definite Must Watch for anyone with a heart!
 
You will also find several blogs on the internet stating that the movie has “bombed” at the box-office. I would suggest this is purely because people cannot find a cinema where it is showing. Sad days indeed!
 
Please check your local media for cinemas showing this movie. Check this link below to watch the famous Gasland Documentary:
 
 
meditation2You may be surprised to hear that meditation should be effortless, that no striving or concentration is needed. I know I was. When I first became interested in meditation, back in the mid-60s, I was repeatedly told that it took great mental discipline and many years of practice. Indian teachers had likened the mind to a wagonload of restless monkeys that needed to be tied down and kept quiet.
 
And my experience appeared to confirm it. My mind was full of thoughts, and try as I may, I could not keep them at bay. Like many others, I naturally assumed that I was not trying hard enough; I needed greater mental discipline, not less.
 
Then I chanced upon Transcendental Meditation. Its teacher, the Maharishi of Beatles fame, challenged the whole notion of trying to control the mind. The monkeys, he pointed out, were wanting something -- more bananas perhaps. Give them what they want and they will settle down of their own accord. So with the mind; it is restless because we are seeking something. And what is it we are seeking? In the final analysis, we all want to feel better -- to be happier, more at peace, at ease, fulfilled, content. He argued that if we give the mind a taste of the inner contentment it is looking for, it will be attracted to it and begin to settle down of its own accord. 
 
This made more sense to me than what I'd come across so far, so I learned his practice. And it worked. I found my mind becoming quiet without any effort. Indeed, as soon as I inadvertently started trying to control the process, in the hope that I could somehow help my meditation along, it did not work so well. Now I am not suggesting that this applies to every type of meditation. Techniques designed to cultivate particular mental skills or states of mind, may well involve a degree of concentration or mental discipline. But when it comes to the basic skill of relaxing into a quieter state of mind, effort generally turns out to be counter-productive.
 
A quiet mind is not a state of mind to be achieved. It is the state we experience when there is nothing to be achieved. It is the mind in its natural condition, untarnished by fears and desires, and the thoughts they create. When everything is OK in our world, we feel OK inside; we are at ease.
 
 
Or rather, that is the way it should be. Yet, even when all our physical needs are met, and there is no immediate threat or danger, we seldom feel totally at ease. More often than not, we feel the very opposite -- it leave us with nothing to do, and most of us start getting bored. If someone upsets us, we may hold a grievance days, weeks, or even years later. Or we may spend hours worrying about situations that could occur, but seldom do. 
 
 
Along with such feelings come an almost endless procession of thoughts. Most of them boil down to worries about how we can be more content; yet, ironically, a worried mind is, by definition, discontent. This is the sad joke about human beings: We are so busy worrying whether or not we are going to be at peace in the future, we don't give ourselves the chance to be at peace in the present. 
 
Given how easily such thoughts spring up, it is easy to assume they must be subdued and controlled. But that approach stems from the same belief that created them -- the belief that we need to be in control of things in order to feel at ease. 
 
Thus the advice that occurs repeatedly in a variety of meditation traditions is: When you realize you have been caught in a thought, accept the fact. Don't judge or blame yourself. It happens, even to the most experienced meditators. Instead of following the thought, as you might in normal life, gently shift your attention back to some experience in the present moment. In TM that may be the thought of a mantra, in mindfullness the sensation of the breath, or in other practices perhaps a visual image, or a feeling of love.
 
Let the attention rest in that experience. Don't try to concentrate or hold it there. Ah yes, you will be sure to wander off again. But the practice is not so much learning how to stay present, but how to return to the present. If you wander off a hundred times, that is a hundred opportunities to practice gently returning your attention to the present.
 
Even then, trying and effort can arise in subtle ways. Maybe if I just added this or focused on that, it would be easier. Some of it is so subtle that we don't even notice we are doing it. A faint resistance to an experience perhaps. Even a slight wanting to have a good meditation can get in the way.
 
Over my forty years of teaching meditation, I have found the greatest challenge for students is to let go of all effort. They can't quite believe that they really do not need to try at all. Sometimes, even the most experienced meditators, with years of practice, may still put a slight effort or control into their practice. Once they let go completely they begin to appreciate how effortless it can be, and find themselves dropping even more easily into a state of inner silence. 
 
Recently, I've been exploring ways to weed out and dissolve even the subtlest levels of wanting, effort, and expectation in meditation. Encouraged by the enthusiastic response these new approaches have received from both complete beginners and people with many years of practice, I am now making them more widely available online.

spirit2The essence of spirituality is the search to know our real self, to discover the true nature of consciousness. 
 
Throughout the history, it has been said that the self we know -- the separate individual self -- is a limited form of what we truly are. Unaware of our true self, we identify with our thoughts and feelings, our memories and our personality. 
 
Such experiences are always changing, but the self that knows them remains the same. We may be very different people than we were twenty years ago, but the "I" that is aware of the difference is the same "I" as twenty years ago. It is omnipresent and eternal. It is the "I" that knows that it knows. The very essence of being aware. It is always present, whatever we may be experiencing, sacred or profane. 
 
This ever-present sense of being is so obvious it is easily overlooked. We fall into believing that we are the individual senses of self that appears in our mind. Like a character in a novel, this separate self engrosses us with its hopes and fears, plans and deliberations. It believes that fulfilment comes from what we have or do in the world, from our roles and possessions, from our personality and how others see us. It promises us happiness, but any happiness it does bring is usually short-lived, and we soon find ourselves chasing some new promise. 
 
Identifying ourselves with the vulnerable, ever-changing character of our personal story, the "I" misses its true nature. Our thinking and behaviour become "self-centered", leading far too often to suffering in ourselves and others.
 
When we awaken to the true nature of self, we are freed from many of the fears that plague us so unnecessarily. We discover an inner peace that does not depend upon events or circumstances in the world around, a quiet but profound inner fulfilment. We become less self-centered, less needy of others' approval or recognition, less focused on collecting possessions and social status. We become happier, healthier and more loving people, less likely to cause suffering to ourselves or others. 
 
This is self-liberation. And its transforming impact has made it the essence of the spiritual quest.
 
mediumship2There are the Simple Three Steps to Developing Your Medium Skills! I have always believed we all can connect with our higher selves, Source, our guides, angels and those on the other side.  I have always believed the only difference between you and I is that I believe I can do this and you don’t.  So let’s change that!
 
First of all, we talk to our dear departed ones all the time.  They do hear us. And, they communicate back to us.  Its hearing back from them and listening to the way they talk to us that really matters. When we understand and hear their messages we can be greatly calmed and happy knowing they are around us. Developing this listening skill is pretty easy.  It is what mediums do and it takes two ingredients:  belief and time. 
 
The most basic skill you can have is the simple belief that you are intuitive, psychic and can connect with those loved ones that have crossed over. If you struggle with believing this statement, good luck in developing your skills. It will not happen without it.  Belief in yourself and in the fact that you too, have medium ability, is the number one thing required in developing and using it.  The second skill is repetition, and that means practice over time.
 
So, how do you begin developing your own skills as a medium?  Follow this simple, three step process:
 
  • Find the time
  • It’s all about a few minutes a day, every day. Put aside ten quite minutes a day. Get a candle, any color.  Many people prefer white.  Light it. Sit in front of it. Relax. Close your eyes.  Still your mind and ask to connect with God.  Still quietly for as long as you wish or can. It is the quiet and the stillness you want to experience.
  • • Develop your five senses.  Yes, the more heightened your physical senses become the better your psychic abilities become. Pay attention to taste, sight, hearing, touch and smell. Take 5 minutes each day and use each one in a quiet space. Really pay attention and notice things with each sense you never did.  As you heighten your sensory awareness it heightens your extra sensory awareness, too.
  • • Light your candle. Go inside to your quiet space, and ask to have a loved one come forward.  Relax. Let whatever comes through for you come through. It sounds silly, but it is as easy as relaxing and believing what you feel, hear or see.  When you are finished write it down in a journal.  It is important you document what you experience because you can refer to it later when it is confirmed as a real experience by you, others or your dreams.  This provides confirmation that what you are experiencing is real.

Using these very simple, basic steps are how many of the mediums that work professionally began their work and training.   You will not only be able to talk to your loved ones on the other side, but hear what they have to say to you, too, and feel comfort and their energy around you. They are never gone, they are just in a different form.

 

mercury1Mercury goes retrograde from February 23 to March 27, and joins forces with Saturn Retrograde (February 18-July 7), to ensure that we do not neglect the things we’ve already started at the expense of something new.  
moon1bFull Moon names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern and eastern United States. The tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full Moon. Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred. There was some variation in the Moon names, but in general, the same ones were current throughout the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. European settlers followed that custom and created some of their own names. Since the lunar month is only 29 days long on the average, the full Moon dates shift from year to year.
light1bWestern medicine deals with sickness, energetic holistic help deals with wellness. In conventional medicine you diagnose and treat an illness. In energy healing, you assess where the energy system needs attention and correct the energy disturbances. Physical symptoms may be a clue, but they are not the focus. 
 
 
For instance, the same stomach-ache might trace to an imbalance in heart meridian in one person, in liver meridian in another, and in stomach meridian in a third. The same physical symptoms can reflect many kinds of problems in your energy system and call for different kinds of attention. Energetic problems occur on the subtle level, high frequencies which we do not see and can’t show where it hurts, that is why the suffering is immense. Traumas, fear and confusion cause people to block their chakras by default, out of attempt to protect oneself. But when the chakras close, the suffering becomes fiercer. 
 
 
 
The transit of consciousness moves with the life force energy that enters our space from the universe through our heavenly bodies, the mental, ethereal, astral and the seat of the soul and enter our physical body; an inner journey from the lower chakras to the higher chakras. Transcending frequencies, from the lower vibrational worlds into the upper worlds, first and foremost, occurs through the heart. But when the chakras close down the whole system is isolated from their own emotions, their body, physical mental and emotional functions, the flow of energy and Qi from the universe and connection with one’s inner world and the world outside.

FOUR WAYS ENERGY HEALING CAN HELP 
 
There are few levels energy healing might make a difference with a health condition:
 
  1. Getting your body's energies into a good flow, harmony, and balance. While not focusing on your health issue directly, this can create within your body an energetic environment that supports your overall health, vitality, and healing. 
  2. Energy healing might make a difference with a health concern involves an assessment of your body's energies and the ways they are related to the condition. Based on that assessment, individualized treatments can be designed to make your energy system more robust, specifically in the ways that will help with the health condition. 
  3. Working on the level of consciousness and emotions to open blocks, release pain and stagnations and allow healing to occur and flow.
  4. Channeling prayers, mantras and meditations which rotate in elevated vibrations and rebirths to new open vibrational levels, resolving limiting beliefs and “locked script” 
 
I assist people around the world to heal conscious and unconscious issues so they can release obstacles and live life to their full potential. In her own quest to become a healer and to serve her sisters and brothers, she was driven by the belief that it was possible to create a system of “here and now” healing. She had found that many available healing systems involved long processes that prolonged suffering. This quest led her to develop a unique system of healing, super-generated by her great love of humanity, to provide a clear and detailed picture of problems and the knowledge of what is required to rapidly transform them. Many people report having experienced transformative healings in a single session, or receiving information that comforts and guides them or their loved ones through traumatic life experiences. Batsheva is known for the extraordinary warmth, understanding, compassion and non-judgment that she projects on everyone around her whilst extending guidance, insight, love and healing to those that seek her help. Combining tools such as spiritual and physical hand reading, channeling, Kabalistic numerology, Tarot Reading and Human Frequency Code (a diagnostic system based on a sense of smell) and channeling, rather like an x-ray, scanning a person’s inner being and cross references received information. This scanning enables to locate wounds, blocks, inhibitions, fears, constraints (physical, mental, emotional, sexual, spiritual) which need to be healed and that can create disturbance on physical health if left unresolved. “I use holistic modalities to diagnose and able to tap in to the core problem, which creates immediate deep communication and connection. When the client feels perceived and their wound, or core problem are seen, it create trust and relief (physical pain, emotional pain.)
 
 
 Often people feel that they have changed and transformed. Repressed traumas, constrains, fears, inhibitions, are severe sources of Mind and Body sickness where holistic tools will generate healing. Frequencies of light healing system promotes guided imagery , working towards the positive scenarios and outcome, process of deep relaxing meditations which create accessibility to the unconsciousness to allow catharsis. Healing and holistic diagnosis by the Frequencies Of Light healing system As the consciousness rises to higher levels, we understand that we are a spiritual being living in a physical body. Not accurate to say that we have a soul, we are a soul in physical body. Therefore is the understanding of increasing the healing emphasis – on the energetic quantum level. 
 
My readings are not just information, healing occurs when blocks are removed allowing the person to release pain, fears and trauma and to be more whole and flowing. Channelling energy essence and focus on the healing on all levels of human’s being, is transformative and opens new channels to self love and expression, resulting in improving relationship, career, abundance, alignment with one’s life purpose. 
 
The Frequencies of Light healing system is based on the principle: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime”. 
 
The desire motivating this healing system is to heal as many people as possible; effective healing system which frees of dependency and gives lasting tools to continue their life-long journey
 
Batsheva, a successful businesswoman and designer in the past, has undergone a spiritual initiation. When the riddle of her life was revealed to her, she felt compelled to dedicate herself to the path of healing, teaching and motivating others to heal and transform, and shift human consciousness to create the New Era. Batsheva is known for her angelic, soft, non-judgemental, loving energy and for creating instantaneous miraculous elevating healing and changes in her followers’ lives at a deep and overall profound vibrational level. She connects those seeking healing to high frequencies of light, supporting them to transform their limiting patterns to a new vibratory state resulting in unusual and miraculous break-throughs. 
 
Batsheva Dor is an international healer and spiritual reader. She travels the world to offer her unique spiritual healings and readings. For more information on Batsheva, see her detailed listing on this website!
