Chios Energy Healing

A Chakra by Any Other Name

Chios Energy HealingI have been doing a bit of reading of late on our chakra system. The information is part of a larger work and is given to clarify how the energy flows in the human body. Almost from the get-go the author mentions there are two versions of the chakra System, one containing eight chakras and one containing thirteen chakras, and that the two are not compatible. He compares them with quantum physics and mechanics saying one can look at the universe either as being particle based or wave length based but not both at the same time. The same is true, he holds, for the two chakra systems. I attempted to correlate the seven chakra system used in Chios Healing with the author’s eight chakra system to see if they were compatible. Suddenly, my mind was racing trying to validate the way I had been doing my healing for the last five years. I almost had a minor panic attack believing I was going to suddenly have to justify myself. (Who I was going to have to justify myself to, I am now not certain, but you know how the mind works.) Then, it hit me! I had, as my both my parents used to say, succumbed to nitpicking. Nitpickers, like critics, look for things to attack and will take things out of context if there is nothing else for them to criticize just to justify themselves. I remembered that when teaching Chios, an intellectual understanding of the chakras themselves is not necessary. A general understanding of how the chakras work is all that is required. Chakras are spiritual entities, an idea the intellect will never fully grasp. One must connect with them on a spiritual level. When you make this connection you will find you are not counting how many chakras there are, or if they are major or minor; instead, you are become one with them and the person’s energy field in order to correct or heal what is not working properly.

My point here is to remind you not to be distracted from who you are, what you do, or what you believe. This can be much easier said than done, as the above suggests, but whether you are receiving criticism from yourself or others, or encountering new and different viewpoints on a subject dear to you, do not be so quick to negate your own feelings and do not assume you have to alter your beliefs. One should only alter one’s beliefs when change is for the better and not just for the sake of change. Remember to trust and to have confidence in yourself. If you are caught in a conundrum, check in with your heart as opposed to your head, for it will never steer you wrong. The more you are in your heart, the less you will find outside influences to be threatening.


2012 Year of the Dragon

Transformation and the Year of the Dragon

2012 Year of the Dragon

On January 23, the year of the Dragon arrived, ushering in a period of great energy and transformation. Research tells me that Chinese dragons are associated primarily with the following:

  • Primal Forces: All Elements (fire, water, earth, wind); Weather (rain, floods, hurricanes) and Energy
  • Protection: Strength, Power, Courage
  • Wisdom: Insight, Foresight, Knowledge

My intuition also tells me that they are associated with transformation. When you combine all these traits, you start to see what 2012 holds for us.

I feel that dragons are the perfect symbol for our upcoming metamorphosis because dragons are so changeable. They live on land, in the water and in the air, and they breathe fire. Dragons can even shapeshift, and travel through space and time. Interestingly, dragons embody yang or male energy, and are often depicted with the phoenix who represents the yin or female energy. The phoenix is the symbol of magical rebirth. What better symbols for 2012 than these two mysterious and remarkable mythological creatures?

The dragon symbolism becomes even more interesting when you discover 2012 is the year of the water dragon. Water is typically yin in nature being associated with life itself, our emotions, the subconscious and creativity. When you couple that with yang energy of the dragon, you have the equivalent of fast moving water, or a powerful current of energy that is going to carry us to our new destination. Perhaps that’s why so many prophecies speak of water (i.e. tsunamis) transforming the world in 2012? The water is but a metaphor for the energy or current that is propelling us into the higher dimension(s). Add in the fact that the dragon brings protection and is gifted in foresight, and I truly believe we have nothing to fear.

No matter how you look at it, I think we’re in for an exciting year!

Love and light,

Crown chakra expanding

Ascension Update: Jan. 2012

Crown chakra expanding

Well, the big year is upon us! After so much hype, 2012 arrived with a whisper rather than a roar. Then again, its arrival was never the issue. What many prophecies point to is the galactic alignment at the end of 2012. Everyone has his or her theories about year’s end, but this is not the focus of today’s blog post. I want to talk about what is happening now, and look back at the past month.

Sick of the Holidays?

Since my last post, a full month has passed. During this time, Steve and I prepared for Christmas and New Year’s only to spend the entire holiday season alone due to a virulent virus that Steve picked up and then generously passed along to me. Being under the weather made me acutely aware of how many others were also ill during the holidays. Flus and colds are par for the course at this time of year, but what struck me was the intensity and severity of the afflictions coupled with the otherwise healthy nature of the people who contracted these viruses. For instance, Steve’s virus affected his liver, making him look like a Simpson’s character. Not only does Steve ordinarily enjoy robust health, but he has never had a liver issue before. As I came to discover, stories like this were oddly common during this past month. Family members, friends, and neighbours experienced similar health challenges, many of which affected internal organs (heart, gallbladder, liver, etc.) and blood (i.e. anemia from too-frequent menstrual cycles) . Others had virulent purging episodes (vomiting, diarrhea, etc.). Then there were those with infections and respiratory issues (i.e. pneumonia and bronchitis). Even people who remained well complained of fatigue/exhaustion, dizziness/ light-headedness, brain fog, and altered sleep patterns (i.e. sleeping ‘til the crack of noon). Suffice as to say, the past month was physical taxing for most of us, and landed many in hospital. So, what is going on, you might ask?

Purging the Past

My angel friends tell me that we experienced a period of deep purging. Old stubborn emotional wounds were released from the areas of our body where the toxins were stored. That makes sense to me! All injuries, illnesses and pain start as a thought. If the thought persists, it elicits an emotional response designed to get our attention. If we ignore that message, then the chemicals from our emotions begin to move to targeted areas of our body. The physical is the last place where our thoughts manifest, and is the last place where they heal. Once we release the physical issues, we should be free of the past. That leaves us ready to deal with the present and future.

Changing Present Concepts

The angels went on to tell me about the next phase of ascension preparedness: altering our concepts. This is the theme for 2012. We are going to be challenged to expand our beliefs, ideas, and other self-imposed limitations. Essentially, we all live a box. Some people have a very small space, and some have an expansive area in which to dwell. Those who are new to Earth and/or to the Third Dimension tend to start out small, but as they accrue experience, they expand their boundaries. This is an important fact to bear in mind when dealing with younger souls. That being said, I have a strong hunch that 2012 is going to substantially expand everyone’s horizons, if my dreams are accurate. I have foreseen two fascinating events that will completely revamp our collective consciousness. Even so, each of us still needs to work on our own belief system so that we are open to receiving the infinite blessings that creation has in-store for us. 2012 is the year of remarkable transformation, but only if you are open to it. (For those who aren’t, don’t worry! Your time will come when you are ready, too. No one ever gets left behind.)

Other Ascension Symptoms

  • Feeling Cut Off from Your Guides: If you’re an intuitive person, then your guides have been happily feeding you information throughout your life. Truth be told, we all receive guidance every day from our loving guides, but many are out of touch with their intuition. No matter which description fits you, we all may be in the same boat right now. I started noticing an interruption in my guidance about two years ago. It came and went without warning, kind of like a radio static. Well, there’s been more static than broadcast messages as of late. Many people tell me they simply can’t hear (see, feel, or know) what their guides are saying, anymore. I sympathize heartily. This ascension business is tough! When I was able to connect with my angels, they explained that every increase in our frequency, or the vibration of Mother Earth, interrupts communication. It’s like trying to listen to your favourite radio station in the car while driving. Eventually, you are forced to find a new station. We are all scrambling to find new stations right now. Plus, as we vibrate at a higher frequency, our guides must move higher and higher.
  • Lucid and Vivid Dreams: Pay close attention to your dreams as they hold the key to understanding this whole ascension process. In my case, I’ve been experiencing more lucid dreams. At times, I am actually conscious of being asleep. I’ve also had several prophetic dreams this month, and dreams that felt prophetic but which have yet to manifest. This is significant, I feel, as it demonstrates a unification of my layers of consciousness. I also know I’m in contact with higher aspects of my being and spiritual guides during my sleep, so I don’t discount anything I experience during these times of REM sleep. You shouldn’t either. Plus, this is an effective way to contact your guides, without that static interference.
  • Pronounced Crown Activity: For the past week, it has felt like I had an ant’s nest on my head. Steve has begun to experience it as well, and he likens it to fingers caressing his scalp. (I really prefer his analogies, don’t you?) Most of the movement I’ve felt on the right half of my scull. Coupled with that subtle but persistent feeling of movement, there have been times of intense pain and pressure, as thought my scull is being remolded. The angels said, “Bingo” as I wrote that last sentence. Oh great! We’re all getting elongated sculls in the new world. LOL!

I could write more, but I’ll save the rest for another article. It’s an interesting time to be alive on Planet Earth, that’s for sure. Be well, or as well as you can be, my friends.

Happy ascension,

The Wonder Year

2012 is upon us and definitely has every one wondering what is going to transpire over the next 12 months. Proverbial lines are being drawn in the sand and many of us are finding ourselves more alone or ostracized than we had imagined. 2012 is the perfect year to symbolize life in the third dimension. On one hand, it is the year of Galactic Alignment, the ending of many cycles and the beginning of new ones as all of creation takes a major step forward. On the other hand, 2012 is also the year of personal ascension. (On a side note here, Kim and I both received a similar message in our dreams the other night; that being that everything is Ascension. As long as we are separate from God and in the process of working towards reunification we are in a state of Ascension. Whether one is moving upwards, downwards, or horizontally through the dimensions does not matter; this is all part of the process and whatever direction one is moving in is not better or worse than another for it is all simply movement towards Home).

The upshot of this is that we cannot make a wrong decision even if we totally ignore the coming year with all its implications for major shifts. If a person tells me that want to stay on this Earth with all its problems then that is their decision not mine. I would simply ask them one question in return: “From where is this decision arising, the head or the heart?” The head (the brain) is an amazing organ – there is no denying that – but the head is also the seat of fear, and fear is not a good basis on which to make any decision, big or small. The heart is the seat of unity, of Love, and one can always trust a decision the Heart makes on its own. That is why I urge people, if they do nothing else over the next few months, to at least learn to enter their heart. Once there they can commune with their higher self and learn what the next step is. It may not be the answer they are expecting or wanting but when examined further they will find it to be the right answer.

A number of things happen when you find your answer. A state of calm knowingness washes over you. Many of the day’s happenings are seen for what they truly are, a diversion; a diversion from the ego’s fear of the unknown. I’m not suggesting we’ll suddenly become geniuses, knowing everything there is to know; rather, we will come to understand that life is exactly what it is meant to be. The heart can help you be proactive and to make your own choices regarding 2012. Your choices will have profound consequences. You may stay in the third dimension to finish your current life experiences, or move onto the fifth or higher dimensions to experience existence in a myriad of ways. Creation is limitless and we are eternal. Our sense of wonder can grow exponentially if we afford ourselves the luxury of making our own decisions, from a place of Love, about the future.
