Our Beautiful Energy Centers: Part 2

Hello once again, and so happy you are choosing to read the next installment.  So let me continue….

So now that we are aware that we have this thing called “Energy Anatomy”, what do we do with it?  I am a pragmatist….and to keep such important knowledge in my head just clutters my mind and my brain.  But to have the ability to work with this information in a way that will show me it is real, it has impact on my body and my health?  That is the “proof of the pudding” as they used to say.  That is walking the talk.  So let me summarize first, from the previous “blog”, and then continue:

We have an energy anatomy that is invisible to the eye, but that we can affect. 

It is in the form of these energy centers, which are then all connected with fine lines so there is an amazing energy grid that holds the energy bodies together, and can be influenced in the healing of the physical body, the most distorted version of the energy bodies.

Once we know where the centers are, we also need to know the function of each center and how it connects to our nervous system, and ultimately to our endocrine system.

Next, we need to understand some of the reasons these centers are in distortion.  (All of this we will be looking at in workshop #1, Saturday, July 27, from 9:30-4:30.)  

The main reason that these centers are not functioning to their highest degree is because there is a split consciousness that is affecting them.  It is now our job to find out what that split consciousness is, and to correct it.  The negative consciousness will be split, in duality, whereas the positive will be more in unity.

How does this “split consciousness” make itself known?

This is the work of our 2nd workshop, (August 10) where we begin to explore some of these areas.  Let’s do it this way.  For the centers to work to their optimum energy, we need to be relaxed, at ease, comfortable in our own skin.  When we are in this place of body/mind relaxation, the emotions will also be relaxed, and it will be easy to feel gratitude, happiness, perhaps love and joy, appreciation, etc.  And these positive feelings will tell us that there is no split in consciousness.

For example, let’s say you have some issues around your sexuality.  This one is easy, since most human beings have many issues about their sexuality, and I chose it on purpose.  So when you think about your sexuality, or let’s say “pleasure”, or “physical intimacy”, the connecting with another human being where there is mutual pleasure and connection, how do you feel?

  • Do you feel excited and happy?
  • Do you look forward to being with your partner of choice and enjoying this experience together?

If that is the case, then your 2nd energy center is most likely open, and working well.

But:

  • Let’s say you have issues around being a “sexual” human being.   You think about your physical intimacy?  You get nervous.
  • You get scared.
  • Or perhaps you get angry.
  • Or perhaps you have not really dealt with the mixed messages you may have gotten growing up as a child,  yet, and so you have already shut down this vital center.  Sexuality is too confusing to deal with, so let’s just ignore it, shut it down.
  • You have to deal with your issues here, if you want this center to function properly. And that would be a very worthwhile exploration, one issue at a time.

AND IF NOT, you do not want to look at this issue?

  • Ultimately, you will create some sort of illness or disease process that will affect both your sexual glands, as well as some of your digestive organs, all of which are being regulated by the 2nd energy center.
  • In addition, another piece of “fall-out” might be that you long to have a relationship with someone, but have difficulty creating it because you are still in confusion about sexuality.

In other words, you can remain alone, and lonely perhaps, and suffer because of it.

OR, since this energy center will be stagnating?

You can do work with prevention of a disease process, or you can wait until you get ill and have to deal with it later.  I prefer the former….since, as I said, I am a pragmatist.

To summarize, what does a “split consciousness” look like?

It looks like negative emotions….emotions of hatred, anger, fear, guilt, shame, confusion, and stagnation, etc.  So once we can ascertain the meaning of each center, then we can look at any negative feelings that may arise around that topic, and we will be able to know the work we need to do to heal the energy center, which will then heal our bodies as well.

And this is NOT a passive process.  If you want to do this, you have to be present to yourself, in alignment with your highest good, and at the same time look at your negative feelings, one at a time, dissect them, and gradually, transform them.

Finally, what happens next?

And now the fun begins.  We start to upload our positive emotions.  We begin to see what it feels like to hold positive emotions.  I find the simplest one to begin with is gratitude and appreciation.  I can offer gratitude and appreciate at almost any moment during the day for something….for my beautiful dogs and cat, for a wonderful meal that I create.  For the ability to do my work, to feel healthy in this moment, I offer gratitude over and over….I am so thankful for the life that I have learned how to create for myself.

Learning how to hold positive emotions will be part of the fabric of this second workshop, because we can fool ourselves.  We can think we are being “positive” but right underneath in another layer of our consciousness?  There is another voice that perhaps we choose to ignore saying “What kind of BS is this?  Really?  You are a fake!!”  And when I hear those voices, I always am soooo happy to hear them, out in the open, where I can meet them, welcome them, and then discover where this piece of negative attitude and emotion is stuck in my system.  Negative emotions that are being held unconsciously are always more powerful than negative emotions we are aware of….so this is always a gift!!!

In summary:

  • In workshop #1, we learn all about the energy centers themselves.
    • We begin to ascertain what the issues might be in each energy center.
    • And we also begin to feel if we are comfortable in our own skin….how relaxed are we?
    • We will add to this some basic meditation skills because meditation will help us to continue to unclog the tension that might be hiding what the real problem is.
  • In workshop #2, we now go more deeply into the consciousness of each center.
    • What are the issues, again, and where are the splits?
    • How much of this are we already aware of?  What is a new insight?
    • How might our physical health already be telling us there is a problem here, because of a chronic condition that we have not managed to heal?
    • Finally, we will begin the process of holding positive emotions as a group.
      • This is very important, because when the ambient field of energy is moving to a higher frequency, meaning from anxiety and fear to love and gratitude….if the ambient field is moving, if other folks in the group are moving up in frequency, it will help us to move up as well.
      • And in this way, we can begin to feel the impact of positive emotions on our energy field as well.
    • And finally, we will continue with a 2nd meditation process that will all be in preparation for our 3rd workshop, (August 24) where we will be much more prepared to sit and learn how to bless these energy centers, for their highest good, and begin to have some impact on them, as well as on our health, and on our lives.

Join me for one or two, or all three of these workshops….it is a joy to be able to teach this work, and I trust that the folks who are excited here about what they are reading, will want to come.  Are you one of those? Contact me….the prep work for the first workshop is up and running and will help you and your process.

Thanks for reading….any comments or questions are welcome.  Warmly, and blessings….Carol Day

 

 

 

Our Beautiful Energy Centers: Part 1

Hello to all my lovely readers and spiritual friends.  Today I want to start a new thread of thought which I find really important not just in our spiritual health, but how it also affects our physical/emotional health.

What is energy anatomy?

In the world of energy healing, there is an entire “energy anatomy” that most “healers” will access, refer to, etc.  This energy anatomy has been known about and written about for many centuries, and in many cultures and spiritual traditions.  When you are dealing with the physical body and various illnesses and symptoms, sometimes we feel disempowered in understanding why we are suffering with symptoms or illnesses.  An awareness of energy anatomy and the energy centers can really be a game-changer and a source for personal empowerment.

How can we be in proper relationship with these centers?

So what am I talking about here? I have been aware of these centers for the past 30 years, since I first began my spiritual work and path to becoming an “energy healer”.  But it has only been recently that I realized through some of the work that I have been doing with my own health, how influential we can be in changing our relationship to these centers, in activating these centers for the highest good.

By learning how to access these centers, thru a meditative process, we can actually “turn off” genes that are directly connected to these centers that are distorted, or causing illness.  And in the same way, thru positive thoughts and intentions while we are accessing these centers, we can “turn on” genes for health, growth, and repair.  Here is the ultimate body/mind link in the thought that we are creating our health AND our disease through our negative thoughts, and our negative emotions.

Where can you find this information on how to do this?

This is possible for each and every one of you…with some help from our beautiful Pathwork lectures, and other energy work that I will be teaching in my 3-part “Blessings for the Energy Centers” summer workshop series.  We have such a bountiful amount of information to help us along the way, plus my 30 years of working with the energy anatomy which I hope will help each and every one of you to begin to feel empowered, and in a transformation process.

In the first workshop (Saturday July 27)  I will be teaching the function of each center.  I will be showing you how to feel them in your body, where are they located, and the many versions of locations.  I will share what I find to be the easiest, and then each of you will have the opportunity to meditate and begin this journey with your body/mind/spirit.

But mentally understanding these centers is not enough…..read on….

It is important that these centers are not just a figment of your mental apparatus…I want you to be able to feeeeel them!!!  And that is the intention that I hold as I teach this 3-part series….that we can open this kinesthetic feeling state thru meditation and some “hands-on” assistance to an actual experience of what these centers feeeeel like when you engage with them.

In addition, it is extremely helpful if you understand not just their locations, but also what organs they are “in charge” of.  I have found with my various clients that each person seems to be stuck in various energy centers at different times in our spiritual/emotional process, and that is “normal”.  But if that “stuckness” continues for a long period of time, this energy block will cause physical illness, some of it life threatening depending on how long you have had this blockage to your energy field.

This is the intent of workshop #1….to ascertain the centers, have an experience of feeling them, and also begin to understand why you may be suffering in physical distress. This is always helpful to be able to understand why we get what we get.  As the Pathwork Guide tells us, when we can begin to see cause and effect in our life, things that felt difficult and incomprehensible, become easier because we see the bigger picture….there is consciousness that has created the blockage and that is something we can attend to.

My Own Personal Healing began at age 34

I will give you a personal example:

Because of my childhood history, some of which I had “hidden” from myself, I had an energy blockage in my 2nd  chakra.  As a result of this blockage, I had difficult periods, could not get pregnant, finally got pregnant which resulted in miscarriage, and then had 2 rounds of pelvic inflammatory disease which closed my tubes.

I went to a yoga workshop and consulted with an MD/yogi there….why am I so blocked in my ability to have a child?  And what can I do about it?  His answer?  You obviously have a difficult blockage in your 2nd energy center.  When you clear that energy center, you will clear that blockage.  It is that simple.  This occurred when I was still very wet behind the ears at the ripe young age of 34.

I worked on myself until I was 40, still young enough to get pregnant.  I did the emotional work, discovered the source of the emotional blockage, and the consciousness behind it, and also did many physical practices from yoga etc. to open this center.  When I was 40, I just intuited that the center had cleared and I could possibly get pregnant.  I went in for testing, and much to the doctor’s surprise, both tubes, which had been badly scarred and shut down, were no longer scarred, and basically, open for business.  Of course, the doctor who performed the test?  Basically told me that whomever told me these tubes were closed must have been incorrect since they don’t heal from that kind of scarring.  (The doctor who did original test?  A very well renowned fertility specialist who basically had said this would never heal as well.)

That’s my story….that was my healing.  And from where I sit now, just starting my 70th year (OMG!!) I would like to add that I have looked back on that story many times….and wondered what other illnesses I might have gotten if I had not cleared this blockage.  The 2nd center affects all the reproductive organs….and I have been soooo grateful for those years of work and what I learned.

Join me for the beginning of this wonderful process…..empowerment in your own healing process.  Any questions or comments, feel free to let me know.  And thank you for reading. To obtain a copy of the flyer, go to http://www.philadelphiapathwork.org or e-mail me directly.  Thanks.

Stay tuned for Part 2 and Part 3….coming shortly!!!

The Law of Self Responsibility and …the fear factor

Hello all my lovely readers and followers, and welcome to anyone new who has bumped into my new Blog.  I hope you find this reading to be engaging, inspiring, and exciting….because I feel that way writing it.

A Brief Review:  Spiritual Law and Its Importance:

As I explained in the previous “blog”, Spiritual Law is the impersonal part of God/the Divine, and it holds the Universe together.  And that’s really a good thing, because without it, the Universe would just devolve into chaos.

So by understanding and following Spiritual law in your life, you are making a commitment to be part of the Great Plan of Salvation.  That means that you are committing to following the Laws, and to transforming your life for the better…both for your own personal good, but also for the good of the Universe.  The idea here is this:  if everyone on the earth plane were to follow Spiritual Law in their lives, they would eventually find their way back to the Unitive sphere, the  sphere of the Divine, and somewhere in our heart of hearts, we all long for that.

We have a memory embedded deep within our hearts of what the Unitive state/sphere felt like….we like to call it “heaven”…and we are all craving it, but many times don’t even know that that is what we are searching for.  So Spiritual Law is your ticket Home…back to the Divine world of Unity and God.  And there are three Laws that will really get you started on this journey (which are part of my 3-part series of workshop, see flyer at http://www.phaildelphiapathwork.org):

  • The Law of Self-Responsibility…you are the Creator of your Life
  • The Law of Cause and Effect;  and finally…
  • The Law of Spiritual Justice (I will write about these last 2 laws in upcoming blogs.)

Spiritual Law #1:  Self-Responsibility AND the fear factor:

Let me share a personal story that literally just showed up as I was writing this:

  • I am cleaning up the kitchen, and I notice that the lid to my stainless steel trash can is really a mess.  Someone spilled a lot of gunk on it, and never cleaned it up.  Now my trash can is important to me (LOL)…it cost a fair amount of money and I really like it a lot. So for two days now I have been staring at the lid with all the gunk on it.  Why don’t I just get some cleaner and wipe it up, I ask myself?
    • My mind is wandering now.  I am getting a bit emotional.  Who is gunking up the trash can and not cleaning it up?  Well, there is no one in the house but me and my partner…..sooooo…..
    • Of course!!! It must be him.  He must have spilled stuff on the counter, and then it fell onto the lid, and of course, he never cleans up after himself, right?
    • Then I catch myself…again and again I have to catch myself.  I would rather blame my partner than just clean it up, or just realize that perhaps in some of my more frantic and unconscious cooking, I spilled the gunk?  So much easier to make it about someone else, eh?  (Please understand that when I am NOT in the blaming mood, I can ASK my partner if he remembers spilling something here….but NOT while I am still in the blaming mood.)
    • So think about it.  For two days every time I walked into the kitchen and saw the lid to the trash can, my uncontrolled mind began ruminating about who did this….
    • Finally, probably because I was in the middle of writing this, I realized how silly I was being, as well as NOT being self-responsible to the possibility that perhaps the chief cook and bottle washer (me!) who spends more time in the kitchen than my partner…well, could I have done this?  The thought just didn’t want to cross my mind,
    • In other words, it is so much easier to blame someone else for whatever is transpiring in our world….

The Fear Factor:

So what are the hurdles that we have to jump over in order to fully commit to a life of full Self-Responsibility, for both the positive events, as well as the negative events? The story I just wrote is true, and it happens every day…we are terrified to admit our imperfections, our negativities, our faults.  And so if something occurs, like my trash can lid, is it easier to trash someone else (a bad pun, but whatever!!) then to trash ourselves?  You betcha!!

Well, the truth is we really don’t want to trash ourselves, or our loved ones.  We just want to be in truth…we want to admit our faults and weaknesses and take responsibility for our lives day-to-day.  We want to stay conscious enough during the course of the day to notice if we are awake, and responsible, or asleep and blaming.  Because if you are in blame (and judgment) you are asleep at the wheel of your life!!!

So fear is the biggest and most difficult hurdle.  (It is linked to two other main faults, pride and self will and they all work together to keep us unconscious and not in self-responsibility.)  We are fearful of many things.  But the biggest thing we are afraid of if we accept our negative creations as ours, is this:

I believe that I am bad.  If I am creating things in a negative and hurtful way, that must mean that I am ALL BAD.  If I am not perfect, the perfect wife/husband, woman/man, or the perfect human being, then there must be something wrong with me.  I am flawed, I am broken.  So I better not show any of my imperfections or faults, and instead I can pretend that I am something that I am not. Perfect and faultless.  Therefore, if something negative is going on? Let’s look around and find out who is doing that, whom to blame, because it isn’t me!!

So here we go folks.  Here is the punch line to my story from above.  I most likely trashed my trash can!!  Yup…there is a good possibility that I did it, when I was not aware, and basically asleep at the wheel.  And by taking responsibility for it, and not blaming my partner, I feel something shifts inside.  I become more whole, not less whole.  I become more human.  I accept myself and my own sloppiness that occurs sometimes…and of course, I would like to shift it, but some days I can, and some days I can’t.  That’s my own split self I have to deal with.  I am not perfect, and will probably not be perfect as long as I am wearing this human body.  And it’s all OK.

So, self-responsibility can become a tool for enlightenment, and for empowerment…a tool for opening up to the whole self, the good, the bad, and the ugly I like to say.  And that tool can be healing. It can be refreshing to say: ” Look at what I did in a moment of unconsciousness.  Wow, where was I?  I must have been out to lunch, but I am back now.  And I can learn and grow from this.  And I want to learn and grow.”

So, let me do it once more, look at how I am creating both my positive life, as well as my negative and more problematic life.  And it’s all good.  I can relax and stop trying to be perfect and holy and good.  I can just be real and compassionate and accepting of myself.  And the more I can accept myself?  The more I can also accept others.

Finally, once I link this Spiritual Law to the other two listed above?  What dynamic tools you will have to create your life.  I promise you that.  I will begin that process in a few weeks.

Hope you are enjoying my ramblings….and next week, we will operationalize this process….how to track this spiritual Law day-to-day.  Until then, Namaste…..

 

Why is Spiritual Law #1, The Law of Self Responsibility ( OR You create your Reality)…so important?

To all who are reading this…..thank you!

You have found your way to my new BLOG, which I am very excited about.  So bear with me as I begin to use this new tool.

Today I want to share with you my passion about Spiritual Law, and how it works,  I am hoping in doing that, you will understand why it is so important for your spiritual growth, and your commitment to your life…and to making your life the best it can possibly be.

Here’s the scoop…First and foremost, Spiritual Law is a version of God, or the Almighty Being, the Supreme Being, in the impersonal.  So… we live in a the world of duality…the earth plane or sphere is a dualistic sphere.  That means that everything is split here…night and day, black and white, etc.  And so is our version of God…or the Supreme Being.  There is the personal version, which we find internally in the world of feeling and love and bliss; and there is the impersonal version…which is Spiritual Law.

Now, there are 3 main Spiritual Laws that hold the earth sphere together….yes, I really mean that.  These Spiritual Laws hold the earth in place!!  And once you truly understand them, you are ready to interact with them and begin your own experience with the impersonal God…because although He/She is impersonal, you will begin to sense Him/Her at work, in a beautiful, and comforting way.

And….most importantly, once you decide to first become aware of, and then to follow these Laws, you change your life dramatically.  You are no longer a helpless victim (child) who doesn’t know how or why you created what you created, but rather you become a more consensual adult, participating in creation in a positive way.

So…the first spiritual law we need to grapple with is the Law of Self-Responsibility.  What this Law says is that you are the Creator of your Reality!! Yes….you take responsibility for the whole enchilada…your entire life is your creation.

So stop for a second…and take a breath. Yes….this is what I am saying.  If you choose to grapple with this law, and to understand it, and to step into it with positive intention…..you are the Creator of your life and everything that has transpired since you were born.

Now…that is a mouthful…I understand that.  But with stepping into this law, and fully engaging with it, comes great power.  Anytime you take responsibility, power is part of the result…because there is no personal power without self-responsibility. Otherwise,  you remain a helpless child….and a helpless child has no power, right?

So we choose, as an adult who wants to grow to their greatest potential, to take responsibility for all of our creations…and here’s the rub, and the piece of work I am recommending for whomever is reading this.  This is a great step ( which we will explore in depth in my upcoming June 23 all day workshop…contact me at carolday3@verizon.net for more info)…..If you are truly going to take full self- responsibility for your life, you are taking ownership of both your positive and your NEGATIVE creations!!  That’s right….this is the world of duality…and in this world, we create both in the positive and the negative.  The rub is….we don’t like to take responsibility for our negative creations…there is always someone else who did it to us (that’s called blame btw!!)

Here are some examples to help you prime your own pump of excuses:

  • It’s because I wasn’t raised properly…so my parents did this to me. (I particularly love this one when the parents have been dead for a long time and we are still wanting to blame them!!)
  • Oh it’s my husband, my wife, my partner, my girlfriend/boyfriend who did this to me.
  • Oh…I had a lousy education and the teachers did it to me.
  • Oh….this country really stinks and there are no real opportunities here…it’s just survival of the fittest so let’s blame the country….whatever.
  • Oh…..finally….of course!! The devil made me do it!!!!!

So this is the challenge and what I am advising you to look at.  Make a list of your life’s accomplishments….what are you most proud of?  There are some things, right?  There are lovely positive creations here and there, for some of you many, others just a few?  But there are some lovely positive creations.  (Since this is the world of both the positive and the negative creations, everyone has something positive, even if they are so hard on themselves that don’t want to see it, right?)  So write them down.

Next…how about the negative creations?  Write down all the nasties, the difficult and painful times, the things you really want to forget and/or blame someone else.  Can you write them down, and then with compassion, write next to them…  “I created this too.  Maybe I don’t know how….yet.  But I want to see this.  I really and truly want to get to know myself better and know how and why I created these various negative parts of my life and caused myself such pain.  What was I doing and why?  I ask my Higher Self to help me see how I created these painful events.”

I like to call this finding the man/woman behind the curtain, someone kind of like the Wizard of Oz, doing all these manipulations that have consequences in our lives, but in secret.   In Pathwork terms, that means finding your own negativity….your own lower self, the part of you that is creating quietly, in the background, with negative intent….and for some of us, we don’t want to see, or pretend that it isn’t there.  Can we slow this down and just own that we create the negative in our lives as well?  That is the first step to true spiritual adulthood!!!

And that is where we begin the journey…and why self-responsibility is such a key.  Without truly looking at your life from both the winning, and the losing…and taking responsibility for both sides?  You are still not a spiritual adult…and a part of you wants to remain the child….

I will continue this journey with you next week with more about Self Responsibility.  In the meantime, check out my flyer which is posted on www.philadelphiapathwork.org under “events”.

Thanks for reading, and for following.  Namaste.
