To Do and To Act, To Speak, To Hear and to Be Heard
This report of my recent activities fits right in with the energy behind the solar plexus and throat chakras, and since I am aiming to include a variety of information which touches on ALL ASPECTS of our being, I am using the seven major chakras as a helpful guide and tool to make sure I do so.
Last Monday, I volunteered to visit a local assisted living home, and use my voice to help them feel better. I am a singer since birth, but never really learned how to read music or play an instrument. But I brought a guitar along with me and my doumbek. I really had no idea what I would do thoroughly, but I knew I would need to help them feel better before I left. What i decided to do, did leave them feeling better, in fact a couple of the elderly got up and danced with the activities director Margo Pirkle. One of them was 92 years old.
I was really grateful to have Margo as the activities person, because she had already laid the foundation for the type of singing and chanting I would do. She has all along discussed with them the power of sounds, and positive thoughts, etc. Along with a Healing song my daughter brought to my attention on Youtube, and a spontaneous song of toning for the chakras and general healing vibrations, I also created a chant song for them to sing their name and also express love for themselves while there, and it went very well.
Many younger generations of us find it difficult to say 'I love myself', but this group of about 9 elder people seemed to have no problem with it for the most part. They chimed right in, strongly! There was one woman who carried a mocking type smirk on her face throughout my visit with them, but towards the closing of my session with them, when she was next in the circle for me to hold her hand and say 'thank you' to her, she looked at me and said "I am glad you came". I am also glad I went.
Such a Beautiful Young Woman INSIDE and Out

New Inspiration from the Matrix
I so enjoy asking positive questions to the universe, which our subconscious mind is intimately connected to, and have found life actually improves for me when I do, and when I don't, my life simply shows no improvement. And you can figure out what happens when you ask those negative questions... like "how much longer will I have to take this mess" or "why does this always have to happen to me?", in a complaining mode; not really looking to see the answer so you can make some changes.
My favorite has been "how can things get much better than this?" But in light of the Matrix Energetics statement shown below, I will now begin asking "what will happen if a miracle occurs now?"
The following quote is from Richard Bartlett & Melissa Joy of Matrix Energetics Intl.
"The key to unlocking the space of grace and miracles is to not put any limits on the universe. This includes not defining how a miracle shows up and what it looks like. An illness that disappears may be a miracle, but so is having a parking space open up right in front of you. Invite a miracle into your life. Ask yourself, "What if a miracle occurred?" The question is an invitation, like a pebble dropped into the field of possibility. Don't hold an idea of what your miracle will be or how it will show up. Rather, put out the invitation and trust it will unfold. Wait. What happens? At the end of the day, take a look at any events that could have been a response to your invitation. Was there a moment that felt like an answer to your open-ended question?"
"SAVEUP"; a new way to encourage saving money and an opportunity to win $
I must admit, I was a bit skeptical when I was first introduced to this site by a family member. But having and keeping, our finances in order is a sign of a healthy root chakra, so I decided to investigate it further, to my satisfaction. Yes, I'm using SaveUp, the program that rewards you for saving money and paying down debt!
What is SaveUp?
"SaveUp is a new rewards program that helps Americans succeed financially by encouraging them to adopt good financial behaviors, such as saving money and paying down debt. By rewarding people with the chance to win valuable or life-changing prizes, we hope to motivate them to become savers instead of spenders."
If you go to their Help page, it explains categorically all about what, how and why to use this new site. I am having nothing but good experiences with it so far, and I have a snapshot view of my financial status with all the institutions that I choose to register with SaveUp - in ONE LOCATION.

When we begin our path of expansion, in order to improve our life circumstances, we get serious and determined to apply some stick-to-it-iveness to our daily routine. This commitment is supported by actually putting your usual intentions for your days on paper.
This action and daily exercise is directly related to our throat chakra, our center of communication.
Amongst other things, the 5th/throat chakra rules over inspiration, creative expression in speech, writing, self-support and ability to follow one's aspirations.
I had a readee that needed some help in terms of creating more order in his life, so i sent him an example of what I created for myself, a daily "to do" list so to speak. I call it my 'stay focused' sheet. He had a good idea to help himself remember to look at, and use this plan of action, he took it and placed it in a frame. It goes like this:
- Give Thanks / Review Goals
- Meditate / Visualize / Set Intentions
- Suryanamaskar / Hoop Exercise while listening to music
- Prepare nourishment while listening to teachings
- While home working, take 5 minute breaks every 20-30 minutes
- Listen to teachings when preparing food, washing dishes
- Repeat affirmations throughout the day
- Give Thanks / Review Goals
- Meditate / Visualize / Set Intentions
- Listen to / Read Something Powerful
Preparing to Heal and the Growing Finger Exercise
Those of us with well balanced 3rd eye chakras; the center of being able to see beyond physicalities and connecting to our higher self through knowing who we truly are, may find, amongst other qualities, that there is heightened healing abilities, great imagination and visualization skills, self confidence and mental clarity.
The following exercise is designed to show you how we all have abilities to influence ourselves, environment and others, and it can be developed through awareness, properly focused intention, AND also we must maintain a high vibratory rate of mental energy.

The Growing Finger Exercise
Hold up your hand, palm facing you, and find the horizontal line, or crease, that runs along the bottom of your hand at the top of your wrist. Find the same horizontal crease on your other hand. Place your wrists together so that the two creases lineup exactly with each other. Now, carefully bring your palms and fingers together. Your hands should line up perfectly in prayer- like fashion.
Look at how your two middle fingers line up. They will either be even in length or one will be shorter than the other. For this exercise you will pick the shorter finger. If your fingers are even, you get to choose either the right or the left one.
Separate your hands and place them on the table or in your lap. Look at the middle finger you chose and think, "This finger will grow longer" Now, don't move the finger. Just become acutely aware of it. You can do this with you eyes open or closed, it does not matter. Look at the finger or envision it in your mind. Focus all your awareness on that single finger; that is all. Do this for one full minute. You don't have to tell it again to grow longer. Once is enough. Just provide what it needs to make the transition, focused awareness. That one finger gets your total attention for one full minute.
After one minute has passed, again measure the length of your fingers using the creases across your wrists exactly as you did before. Note the lengths of your two middle fingers, and presto change-o! the finger that received your awareness will be longer. That is pretty amazing when you stop to think about it. (Yes, pun intended.) Welcome to the wonderful world of heightened awareness. You've just witnessed how the force of awareness can animate the body and prepare it for healing from within.
But how were you able to perform this magical feat?... The basics for this exercise were intention and awareness. First you had the single intention for your short finger to grow longer. Then you focused all your awareness on that finger. This exercise gets us in the neighborhood of Quantum Entrainment but we are not quite there...

I have had a deck of inspirational not-so-much-like tarot cards for many years now, hmmm... maybe 25 years. It was the first deck of Osho cards produced I believe, called "Osho Neo-Tarot". I cherish these because each card tells a story based on some fo the teachings that Osho had passed on to his students in many of his books.
We will be using this deck, along with another at times, to bring more insight into any given situation. Please hear the following introductory audios to this deck of cards we will be using. Anyone wanting to volunteer for the first reading please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will pick a card for you once tuning into your energy. Just send me your full name and where you are located. If you want, you can also send any notes related to concerns you may be having.
