You’re invited to a New Year’s celebration… in November!

11-11 Lemurian New Year eventA few weeks ago in mediation, I received a clear message from the Lemurian Council of the Blue Rose, an etheric group of wise beings who are dedicated to preserving and sharing ancient Lemurian wisdom.

They told me a major theme for the coming year is FREEDOM.

The Council is encouraging us to free ourselves from old thoughts, release attachments to the past, and open our hearts. They want us to experience true freedom so we can create lives of joy and fulfillment.

As we move into 2016, the energies of ascension are accelerating, and the shifts we’re experiencing are not always easy. If we want to awaken and evolve as gracefully and as comfortably as possible, we need to raise our vibrations as high as we can.

To do this we need to let go of old energies that no longer serve us.

For the last two years I’ve celebrated Lemurian New Year (November 11th) by doing a special group healing and energy activation event for a limited audience. The first year, more than 100 people participated. Last year, we had more than 200 participants.

This year’s event promises to be more powerful than before because I’m inviting people from all over the world to participate.

When a group of people focuses their attention spiritually at the same time for a common purpose, something magical happens. The energies involved increase exponentially. More spirit beings choose to participate, and more people are able to experience profound healings and spiritual awakenings.

If you’re ready to lighten your heart and experience more love in your life, join me November 11 and receive a special, two-part gift of energy.

First, the Lemurian Council of the Blue Rose and I will conduct a long-distance group healing to help you free yourself from the past—from old thoughts, old beliefs, and old emotional energy.

Then, we’ll help you align with your higher self and awaken your Divine Heart.

What is your Divine Heart? It’s the core of your true being. It is the eternal part of you that knows only love and trust and compassion.

I hope you can join me for this special Lemurian New Year 11-11 event. You’ll find all the details at davidbower.com.

Mahalo with bright blessings,
David

P.S. I’ll also be channeling a special message for the group on November 11. So, if you choose to participate in the 11-11 event, I’ll send you the channeled message by email. You can register at davidbower.com.

You can also read my article explaining why we celebrate Lemurian New Year on 11-11.

Glastonbury gathering raises Lemurian love and light

Lemurian Healing practitioners in Glastonbury

British summers are notoriously cool and often wet, yet we had absolutely perfect weather for our Lemurian Healing workshops in Glastonbury UK last month.

I am honored to officially welcome our newest certified Lemurian Healing practitioners from the UK, Denmark and Switzerland. And I extend loving congratulations to the first graduates of our Master Level 1 Course!

Our venue this year was the Goddess Hall, a magnificent building that’s been transformed by the owners and supporters of Glastonbury Goddess Temple into an ideal space for spiritual learning, ceremony and healing.

The Goddess Hall was perfect for Lemurian Healing because every square inch is infused with divine feminine energy. We were blessed to be able to use this wonderful facility for all six days of our workshops.

I am continually learning to trust the unfolding of life, which includes the business of teaching and presenting workshops. The light of Lemuria attracts those who are meant to awaken to their Lemurian roots. This was our second year teaching Lemurian Healing in Glastonbury, and just like last year, those who were meant to join our sacred circle found their way to us.

No matter how many times I’ve experienced it, I still enjoy the awakening and bonding that happens in our Lemurian Healing workshops. Individuals come together feeling like strangers meeting for the first time, but by the end four days, the group feels like a spiritual family reunited.

Plus, the group energy always becomes a focal point for our non-physical friends—our higher selves, spirit guides, angels, councils and Goddesses—to contribute their love and light to the proceedings. The gathering becomes a virtual sauna of love energy.

Mamiko and I love spending time in and around Glastonbury, the sacred center of ancient Avalon. We feel an undeniable connection between the mystical realms of Avalon and Lemuria. Their vibrations are similar, which makes sense. Both are manifestations of divine feminine light.

We especially enjoy the sacred feminine energy of the Chalice Well gardens at the foot of the famous Glastonbury Tor. In the serenity of the gardens, we feel the divine presence of the Goddess, who assures us that the effort of bringing Lemurian Healing from Hawaii to Glastonbury is well worth the time and effort.

And we are forever grateful for the opportunities we’ve been given to share the light of Lemuria so far from home.

Lemurian Healing News – July 2015

The ancient mountaintops of LemuriaGreetings from Lemuria! It’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through the year. As I shared at the end of last year, one of the big themes for 2015 is abundance.

According to Lemurian numerology, 2015 is an “8” year (2+0+1+5=8). Think of the number 8 as the symbol for infinity ∞ turned on its side. So on one level, 2015 is about letting go of limitations and embracing the limitless abundance available to us from the Universe.

On another level the number 8 also represents the weave between the physical world and the non-physical realms of spirit. This year is offering us a wonderful opportunity to strengthen our connections to our higher selves, angels, spirit guides and other beings of light.

Friendly reminder: Do not hesitate to ask your higher self and guides to help you manifest the kinds of abundance you truly desire!

NEW INTRODUCTORY VIDEO

If you haven’t seen it yet, I recently posted a new video on our home page that provides a brief overview of Lemurian Healing:

Teacher Training in Hawaii, October 19-21
As another important milestone for Lemurian Healing, we’re holding our very first teacher certification course in English in Honolulu, October 19-21. We’re thrilled at the prospect of having Lemurian Healing teachers spreading the light and love of Lemuria in the UK and Europe!

BOOK NEWS

As you probably recall, our Lemurian Healing modality is based on concepts and techniques developed in the Goddess temples of ancient Lemuria. Originally, the temple priestesses used this wisdom to shift between dimensions. Using their focused intention, they could alter their vibration and bring themselves into alignment with higher or lower levels of conscious awareness.

For several years now, Mamiko has been bringing forth wisdom from Lemurian Goddesses and the Goddess temples of Lemuria. She’s been teaching five different Lemurian Goddess Temple workshops in Japan and training groups of priestesses. Over the last two years, Lemurian Goddesses have been guiding her (and sometimes waking her in the middle of the night) to finish writing a book about them.

Well, the process is nearly complete. Her publishing company has sent her new 300-page book to the printers and it will be released later this month in Japan.

While various people around the world are writing and teaching about Lemuria, I believe Mamiko is the only one who is bringing forth information and wisdom from the five elemental Goddess temples of Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Love. Selfishly, I want her book to be available in English because I don’t read Japanese!

I also feel this information would be valuable to many people around the world who are remembering their connection to Lemuria and awakening the divine feminine energy within themselves. Will you join me in holding the vision that the book Lemurian Goddess gets translated and published in English and other languages soon? Mahalo!

Well, that’s all the news for now. If you ever have questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]

With bright blessings to you,
David

Is LEMURIA a code word for global awakening?

Lemuria: Home

I live in Lemuria. Well, to be more accurate, I live on a small remnant of what was once the Lemurian continent, which disappeared into the Pacific Ocean tens of thousands of years ago.

Today, this place is called Hawaii. The Hawaiian Islands are the ancient mountaintops of Lemuria.

And if you’ve ever visited Hawaii, you know it’s special, like no other place on Earth. You can feel it the moment you step off the airplane.

Why does it feel so different? Because the high-vibrating energy of Lemuria still permeates the land, despite the islands’ 1.4 million inhabitants, the endless tourists, and the overwhelming presence of the U.S. military.

Fifteen years ago, when I first heard the word “Lemuria,” my ears perked up like a dog hearing the call of a familiar voice. I had no idea what the word meant, but I sensed something shift inside of me.

From that moment on, my spiritual path opened wide, and my journey of awakening shifted into high gear. My wife Mamiko, who’s from Japan, had a similar experience with the “L” word.

Since our awakening we’ve both been able to access information from past lives in Lemuria as well as Lemurian wisdom stored in the etherics. These days we travel extensively to share Lemurian wisdom and teach Lemurian Healing.

And we are not alone

Our experiences with the name Lemuria are certainly not unique. In one of our early Lemurian Healing workshops in Tokyo, one of the attendees was an 80-year-old kendo master and Buddhist priest. As we went around the circle introducing ourselves, he said, “I have no idea what Lemuria is or why I’m here, but I saw the advertisement and I knew I had to come.”

Over the years we’ve heard hundreds of similar stories from housewives and office workers, medical professionals and yoga teachers. When people encountered the word Lemuria, their lives began to change dramatically and their spiritual awakening accelerated.

How do you feel when you see the word Lemuria? Do you feel a resonance? Do you feel something stir within your heart?

Last year my wife and I traveled to Glastonbury (the renowned site of ancient Avalon) to teach Lemurian Healing in the UK for the first time. Because we had been teaching almost exclusively in Japan up until then, we had no idea what to expect.

Well, we were wonderfully surprised that every single person in the group—whether they were from England, Hungary or Ukraine—felt a strong connection to Lemuria and we’re drawn magnetically to our event.

It has become clear to me that, for many people around the world, the word “Lemuria” acts as a secret code. It triggers something in their life blueprints and cellular memory that unveils a new phase in their spiritual awakening.

Recurring codes

These same people are often the ones who frequently see the recurring number pattern 1111 or 11:11. For more than 20 years people have documented seeing this number pattern and feeling its connection to human ascension and the great shift in consciousness that’s unfolding now on the planet.

The pattern 1111 is another code that triggers spiritual awakening. Many people feel whenever they see that number, it’s a wink from their higher selves and spirit guides that they’re on the right path or a loving reminder that their lives are part of a larger, planetary process.

It’s also a significant symbol from Lemurian times. It represents the four elements (earth, water, air and fire), the four Goddesses associated with those elements, and the four energetic bodies of incarnate experience (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual).

Lemuria was a highly evolved society based entirely in LOVE. At the end of Lemuria’s evolutionary journey, much of the wisdom from the Lemurian experience was stored etherically with the knowledge that a Great Shift would come about in the future and that this wisdom of divine love and healing would prove invaluable.

So, here we are in the midst of an unprecedented shift in human consciousness. As the third-dimensional world of fear and control and duality fights for survival, a new paradigm is emerging. People are awakening to love once again.

They are remembering their divine connection to Mother Earth, to each other, and to all life. They are reclaiming their own divine nature and learning to love themselves once again. They are remembering Lemuria.

More people are awakening each day, and for many, their connection to ancient Lemuria is the path of love that is leading them home.

How to get the most from your energy healing session

energy healing session

You’ve finally you booked an energy healing session with that practitioner you found. Now what? Well for starters, don’t expect your healer to do all the work.

What!? Isn’t that what I’m paying for?

Here’s a secret: All healing is self-healing. And the more you consciously participate in your own healing process, the more satisfied you’ll be with the results.

Ultimately, you are the only one who can heal your physical body. You are the only one who can heal your relationships, eliminate your abundance issues, get over a broken heart, or think yourself out of depression.

Medical professionals, energy healers, therapists and shamans can all apply their tools and techniques to assist you in your healing journey, but only you can heal you. Whatever level of healing you achieve in this life is up to you.

Now, with that in mind I’d like to share some practical advice for getting the most out your healing sessions. I’ve been doing healing work for more than 15 years, and this is the advice I still give to my clients.

1. Establish a clear intent for your healing session

TIP: If you’re only going read one part of this article, read this one!

Going into a healing session without a clear purpose is like getting into a taxi and not telling the driver where you want to go. The driver can start driving (with the meter running, of course), but without a clear destination it just becomes a pleasant yet somewhat meaningless drive around town.

Get clear about your healing goals. Think about what you want to change or achieve in your life.

Do you want to get rid of a particular fear? Are you having money problems and want to attract more abundance? Is there a relationship you need to heal or let go? Is your goal to overcome an illness or disease?

Whatever you want to achieve, do your best to picture your desired outcome clearly. Don’t focus on the problem and how you got there. That’s old news. Focus instead on the ideal outcome. Envision the future reality you truly want to experience.

Picture your healing outcome in as much detail as possible. Imagine how you’ll feel in your new state of being.

And please write it down. Or type it. The important thing is to get it out of your head and onto the page. The act of writing out your healing intent accomplishes two things. It helps you achieve better clarity, and it starts to bring your desire into manifestation.

I can feel the questions brewing in your mind. Here’s a little Q&A.

What if I’m not exactly clear about my focus for the healing session?

That’s perfectly OK. Make some notes and discuss it with your practitioner.

Many people have a general idea about what they want, and the clarity comes once they start discussing it with someone. A good practitioner will listen carefully and help you establish a clear, mutual focus for your healing session.

What if I have no idea what to focus on?

This scenario is fairly common, especially with first-time clients. If you have no clue where to start, think about one significant change you’d really like to make in your life.

And here’s a potent question to ask yourself: What is the single biggest source of stress in my life? For most people, the answer to this question provides the perfect focus for a healing session—or a series of healings.

In healing, as in every aspect of life, the more focus and clarity you have about what you want, the more successful you’ll be.

2. Show up relaxed and well-rested

Chances are you’re not receiving regular weekly healing sessions. So, the session you’ve booked is kind of a big deal. Don’t waste it.

Energy healing works with subtle, non-physical energies, which means it’s hard for you to receive the full benefits of a healing session when you’re overly tired, tensed or stressed.

Do your best to get a good night’s rest before your scheduled session. And add a little extra time to your travel schedule to ensure that you can show up on time rather than rush around and get stressed about being late.

3. Do some deep breathing at the outset of the session

Your healing practitioner will most likely chat with you at the beginning of a session to understand you goals, explain the session format, and answer your questions.

Once the actual energy work begins, you’ll want to close your eyes and become as relaxed and receptive as possible. Deep breathing is the easiest way to do this.

Inhale slowly, gently and deeply through your nose, filling your lungs as fully as you can. As you exhale, use your intent to let go of any tension you feel in your body. Continue breathing deeply, feeling your body become more relaxed with each breath.

3. Enlist the help of your higher self, guides and angels

After a few cycles of deep breathing, silently call upon the non-physical realms to assist in your healing. In your thoughts, consciously enlist the support of your higher self and any spirit beings, angels or deities you’re comfortable calling upon. Tell them your intended goals for your healing and thank them for their participation.

In all the years of my practice, I have never done a healing session without the participation of non-physical beings. They always show up, even without an explicit invitation. However, I have found that their support can be much more effective when they are consciously, clearly and sincerely called upon to assist.

4. Be serious about your post-session self-care

The effects and benefits of an energy healing don’t end when the session is over.

Energy healing helps you release old thoughts, emotions, and energetic patterns that no longer serve you and allows you to integrate new, higher vibrating frequencies on multiple levels—physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

This process takes time and usually unfolds in the days following a session, especially when you’re asleep. To help you receive the highest good from your healing session, it’s best to give yourself some extra TLC.

Listen to your body. Take it easy. Be gentle with yourself.

Energy healing can stir up all sorts of things. So don’t be alarmed if you experience some physical discomfort in the hours or days following a healing session.

You may not experience any discomfort at all. However, common symptoms can include headaches, abdominal cramps, feeling heavy or tired, body aches, low fever, or feeling the urge to go to the bathroom more often than usual. Buried emotions such as sadness, regret or anger can also come to the surface.

If you experience any of these reactions, remind yourself that this is all very common and simply part of the healing process. Typically, any physical or emotional symptoms should dissipate in a couple of days.

Here are my top four post-session, self-care tips:

  • Drink lots of pure, fresh water, especially in the hours following your session. Plain water is best, although mild herbal teas are fine, too. You want to keep your body hydrated and fluids moving through you.
  • Rest and relax. Ideally, you’d be able to take a nap immediately after a session. If this isn’t practical, do your best to take it easy the rest of the day following your session. Avoid crowds and harsh environments. Sleep as much as you can.
  • Take a bath. A warm, relaxing bath can help you release stagnant energies that were stirred up during your healing session. Picture the water helping you release this old stuff you no longer need. And as you drain your bathtub, imagine all the old energy disappearing down the drain and out of your life.
  • Be careful about what you put into your body. If you really want to enjoy all the benefits of your healing session, eat light and be very discerning about what you put into your body. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, heavy foods (such as meat), refined sugar and highly processed foods.

Healing is a life-long journey. Once we heal one facet of our lives, another facet comes to the surface for our attention, love and healing.

And although we each have the potential to heal ourselves in every way, I don’t believe we’re meant to do it alone. Part of the human adventure is learning to ask for help and allowing others to assist us.

Yet, even when we seek out the services of energy healers and other practitioners, we need to consciously take responsibility for our own healing. Hopefully, the guidance I’ve shared in this article will help you experience the best possible outcomes from your healing sessions.

Teachers, oracles and open hearts

IMG_6104

Last Sunday here in Honolulu we happily welcomed 20 Lemurian Healing practitioners into the ranks of our certified teachers.

Our Lemurian Healing teachers’ course is kind of a big deal. We hold this type of training only a couple of times a year in Hawaii, which means participants must make a significant commitment to join us on this small speck of land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

For some participants, traveling to the teachers’ course is their first experience traveling abroad. For others, they can’t believe how everything magically fell into place—with finances, family and work commitments—so they could attend.

But once everyone gathers in a circle on the first day, it’s clear that each participant is meant to be there. Everyone has a connection to ancient Lemuria, that’s for sure, but the group connection runs deeper.

Sometimes it feels obvious that everyone in the circle has worked together before in past lives. Sometimes small groups of former mermaids, priestesses, star travelers or reincarnated dragons find each other and experience a joyful, tearful soul reunion.

A sacred ceremony for healing teachers in an ancient, sacred space.

A sacred ceremony for our healing teachers in an ancient, sacred space.

For each workshop group a unique theme emerges. Previous groups have featured themes such as “rebirthing your true self” or “transformation.” The theme for our most recent group was “reawakening the oracle.” Each person in the circle had been an oracle, a channeler, or seer in previous lives. Their souls are experienced at reaching beyond the veils of the human experience and communicating with spirit.

So, for the participants in this particular group, their healing work involves becoming oracles once again and bringing wisdom and information from the realms of spirit to help others awaken and heal.

After hosting this teacher training a dozen times over the last six years, I can say with confidence it’s well worth the effort—both for attendees and for Mamiko and me. We pack of lot of content into three days. We provide once-in-a-lifetime healing experiences here in Lemuria. And there’s always a wonderful mix of laughter, adventure and tears.

As one participant shared with me at the end of last weekend’s course, “Thank you so much. This workshop changed my life.”

And that brings me to the most important aspect of our teacher training experience. Love. Lemurian Healing is based in divine love and its purpose is to help people experience more love in their lives. It still amazes me how much our participants are able to open their hearts over the course of just two or three days.

IMG_8172 Our teacher trainees preparing to enter the ancient ruins of a Hawaiian healing heiau.

The Lemurian Healing teachers’ course provides a safe space for healers to release fears, let go of the past, and become more of who they truly are.

In October Mamiko and I will be presenting our first-ever Lemurian Healing teachers’ course in English, and we’re very excited. Anyone who completed our certification course in Glastonbury UK last summer or who will earn their certification in Glastonbury this coming August is eligible to attend. More details coming soon….

2015 Lemurian Healing Workshops in English

LH-English-promo-Jan2015

We’re excited to announce new Lemurian Healing workshops in English for 2015. This might not sound like a big deal, but we’ve been teaching mainly in Japanese these last eight years, and we’re starting to spread our reach around the world.

Last year Mamiko and I travelled half-way around the globe from Hawaii to Glastonbury, UK to present our first Lemurian Healing workshops to an English-speaking audience. The reception we experienced was better than we ever imagined. We certified 10 passionate Lemurian Healing practitioners, including healers from Ukraine, Hungary and the Netherlands. Plus, we discovered there are many people in Europe who feel a connection with Lemuria and are interested in learning Lemurian Healing.

So, riding the momentum of last year, we’ve just confirmed dates and venues for English-language workshops in the UK and Hawaii. Mark your calendars!

Learn the Basics

Anyone can learn Lemurian Healing. It’s simple, powerful and requires no prior experience. This is a fun, hands-on, two-day workshop that teaches you the underlying basics of Lemurian Healing and how to do a complete healing session on family and friends (and yourself).

Lemurian Healing Basic Level Course
8-9 August, 2015 (Sat-Sun)
Goddess Hall, Glastonbury UK

Become a Certified Practitioner

Immediately following the Basic Level Course, we’re offering an additional two-day workshop for those wishing to become certified Lemurian Healing practitioners. In addition to learning advanced techniques, such as long-distance healing and toning, you’ll gain practical experience in working with clients before, during and after a Lemurian Healing session.

Lemurian Healing Certified Practitioner Course
10-11 August, 2015 (Mon-Tue)
Goddess Hall, Glastonbury UK

Experience the Teachers’ Course in Lemuria

Since we first offered teacher training in Hawaii six years ago, at least half the attendees have had no initial intention of becoming teachers. They come because they know it will be a transformative, once-in-a-lifetime experience.

We hold this three-day workshop in Hawaii because the Lemurian energy here is undeniably strong (these islands are the ancient mountaintops of Lemuria). Through sacred ceremonies, we help participants awaken the light of Lemuria in their hearts.

If you become a Certified Practitioner in Glastonbury in August, you’ll be eligible to attend this special workshop in October.

Lemurian Healing Teachers’ Course
19-21 October, 2015 (Mon-Wed)
Ala Moana Hotel, Honolulu, Hawaii

Details about workshop pricing (especially early-bird pricing for the UK) and registration will be posted soon. Stay tuned!

Three (easier) alternatives to New Year’s resolutions

2015 New Years resolutions

We’re just a couple of weeks into the New Year, and by now the majority of folks who’ve made new years resolutions are either struggling to hang onto them or have just plain given up.

Why? Because if you’re like most people, the act of declaring bold “resolutions” at the outset of a new year is an unpleasant, inefficient way of trying to change your life. And deep down inside you know it.

The only reason we ever do anything—I mean absolutely anything in life—is that we believe on some level that doing it will make us feel good, or at least make us feel better in our current circumstance. It’s the reason behind our resolution to eliminate sugar and dairy from our diet this year. It’s also the reason we’ll blow off that resolution and eat an entire pint of Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Swiss Almond tonight.

We want to feel good. We want to feel safe, empowered, capable, comfortable. We want to connect and belong and feel valuable.

Do resolutions do that for us? Well, for the vast majority of us, no.

Most resolutions feel like “should’s,” like a stern parent telling us what to do. I will exercise 30 minutes every day (because I know I should). I will quit smoking (because everyone says I should). I will eat healthier (because I know I should). Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Who wants to be told what to do, especially when the bottom-line truth is that we’re uncomfortable with change?

If you really want to begin making meaningful changes in your life, here are a few easier and more effective alternatives you can use right away.

Choose a compelling keyword (or two) for the year.

This is a simple way of bringing more of a certain quality into your life. Choose a keyword that inspires you, that feels aspirational, such as compassion, confidence, patience, forgiveness, generosity, boldness, self-care, or commitment. You could also choose a word or phrase that reminds you of what’s important to you this year, such as “me first,” “family time,” “I am a writer” or “no fear.” Post your keyword or phrase in places where you’ll see it daily.

Stop thinking about changes and start focusing on choices.

Change, or at least the thought of change, is uncomfortable for most of us. So instead of “resolving” to make a major change in your life, such as eating healthier, try breaking up the process into bite-size bits.

  • First, simply set your intent to make healthier eating choices more frequently. This lets you off the hook of expecting to transform your life once and forever beginning with today’s lunch.
  • As you move through your daily routine, do your best to make choices that align with your intent. So, for lunch today you could choose to have a side salad instead of French fries. Whenever you make a choice or decision in alignment with your intent, give yourself a high-five. Give yourself credit for consciously making the choice. Allow yourself to feel good about it. Eventually, all the small choices you make will start adding up to a larger shift. Let the process gain its own momentum.
  • However, do not berate yourself for making choices that don’t align with your stated intent. This is probably the most important consideration of all. If you feel like eating French fries and forgo the side salad, don’t judge yourself or make yourself feel wrong. That’s the worst thing you can do. Instead, make the choice, be comfortable with it, and enjoy your fries! You’ll have another opportunity to make a choice very soon.

As you focus on individual daily choices rather than sweeping life changes, you’ll probably discover your life evolving without much effort or drama.

Try healing your underlying resistance to change.

Oftentimes we feel the urge to make a change in our lifestyle, career or daily routine but we feel stuck. It feels like we’re getting in our own way, as if we’re blocking or sabotaging the very thing we desire to be, do or have. In many cases these blocks are emotional and mental energies that built up when we were younger or they’re residual energy patterns we carried over from previous lifetimes.

You have the ability to heal the resistances you feel. Energy healing sessions can be a gentle, effective way of clearing these blockages. I have found in my own healing journey and in working with clients over the years that these blockages are not necessarily deep or traumatic and can clear quite rapidly.

And yet we are complex beings. As we heal one component of our lives, other issues and blockages often come to the surface. The good news is that as we bring more awareness to our ongoing process of healing, the journey becomes easier and easier.

Energy healing modalities, such as Lemurian Healing, can help us dissolve fears, heal past traumas, and release blockages that are keeping us from moving forward. Once the resistance clears, we can feel more focused and empowered to create the life changes we truly wish to experience.

Are your beliefs not working? Change them.

if your beliefs aren't working, change them.

You can stop taking your beliefs so seriously. Seriously. A belief is simply a thought you think over and over again. It’s just a thought, and thoughts can be changed. It’s your choice.

If you ever start feeling that a belief no longer serves you, replace it. Choose a new thought that FEELS better and start thinking that one over and over again (finding one that feels better is the key).

Which of the following beliefs feels better to you? “Life is a struggle and success only comes from hard work and sacrifice” or “Life unfolds easily for me. My needs are met and my dreams come true effortlessly.”

See what I mean?

We often believe that our beliefs are like concrete, fixed and permanent. But here’s a new thought to ponder: even concrete can be broken apart, ground to dust and replaced with something else.
