Water Walking Words 6

WATER, WALKING and WORDS, Part 6

Florence Scovel Shinn in her wonderfully powerful book, “The Game of Life and How to Play It,” teaches us that our word is our wand.

Dr. Zhi Gang Sha in his book, “Divine Soul Songs: Sacred Practical Treasures to Heal, Rejuvenate, and Transform You, Humanity, Mother Earth, and All Universes,” demonstrates how chanting “lu la lu la li,” meaning “Love, Peace and Harmony,” can change your life for the better.

I had the pleasure of meeting him many years ago in a workshop he was presenting. I felt and knew then, he was a genuine, real master spiritual teacher. He has many books and International Organizations teaching these simple practices of Words. Positive Words. Singing Love, Peace, Harmony. He has recorded many testimonials in his books of all manner of healings, by doing the simple practices of positive, loving Words.

Why are Words so powerful?

The Bible teaches us:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)

He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (Psalm 107:20)

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.(Isaiah 55:11).

Our Words are very powerful because we are Divine Children. We are Creators. We are Love, and Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Affirmations and chanting positive Words align us with our Divine Source our powerful thoughts, and keep out fear, doubt and negativity that we don’t want in our Reality. Aren’t you most happy when you are creating? Singing, dancing, writing, gardening and being the Love that you are creates worlds.

When I am in a negative space, anger or doubt, disappointment or hurt feelings, I know I don’t want to stay there. I choose, as quickly as I can, positive “I am” statements. “I am Love. I am Peace. I am as God created me: perfect, whole and complete.” After a time, I can feel the inner Peace that allows the good ideas from the Divine to flow in. Solutions to the problems causing the upset arise. Rest from the worry allows the healing light to come in.  Little by little I see my part in the conflict and can forgive and move on. It really is that simple, though sometimes we are caught up in our “rightness,” which makes it seem not easy. Even one thought in the right direction can bring us to our peace, because peace is always available to us. Esther and Jerry Hicks, in their many books on the teachings of Abraham, tell us it only takes 17 seconds of positive thinking to redirect yourself into the positive flow of wellbeing.

Since we have been created out of Love, and we are still Love, let’s Love ourselves, our friends, our enemies and our Creator. What a concept. Let’s see what will happen when we do.

Stillness

I have been a professional channel for 30 years.  I channel Sananda, Kudos, 7 Spirit Dolphins and Lela, my High Self.  Over the years I have received very specific guidance for my spiritual growth, healing and everyday life problem solving.  I became accustomed to receiving this wonderful helpful guidance, when all of a sudden it stopped.

I had been channeling for about 12 years and happily receiving helpful suggestions for any number of topics when it just stopped, though I knew my guides were present.  I would get into my usual quiet space and get ready to channel and ask my question, and I would hear, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”

Each day I would pray and get into my “channeling space” and ask again, and I would hear, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”

This was a very challenging time of my life as my daughter and I were caretakers of a 2,000 acre ranch.  She was only 10 years old, and we were pretty much on our own discovering how to live in the country and take care of horses, chickens, dogs, cats, a hamster and a bunny, while assisting the owners in developing the ranch. I was feeling this is not the time for my channeling to stop.

In a very real sense it hadn’t stopped, it had changed.  I found I had many synchronicities each day and was moved to be right where I needed to be each day.  I was feeling happy and peaceful as my daughter had always wanted a horse and one of my dreams of getting to know wild animals “personally” was coming true. Several times the same owl would greet us as we drove up the two-mile dirt driveway. It would fly right alongside us.  We grew to know and be familiar with badgers, hawks, wild boar, a fox, a weasel, skunks, bobcats and, of course, our farm animals.

Still, each day, I would meditate and pray, though no direct information came except, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”  This did give me peace and the thought,  “OK,  I will do my best at that.”

This same process continued for two years, until one day I shouted, “What does this mean??” When I “heard” in the silence the sweetest voice saying, “I just want you to know me in the silence.”

The presence was so tender and loving that I felt very foolish at not recognizing that during this time period I was getting guidance from the still silence.  My own intuition was stronger, and I was growing spiritually.

After this day, my channeling resumed and I began to receive very specific guidance again, but it became more a part of my whole self– the feeling of always being connected and cherished by the Divine presence within me. “Be still and Know that I Am God” has become a practice and preamble to my channeling.  So, I highly recommend the stillness that can be found within you while walking, doing the dishes, gardening or doing just about anything. Peace, joy and love will shine through you as that is who you are.

WATER, WALKING and WORDS, Part 5

As we continue in our simple, yet very powerful, practice of Water, Walking and Words, we can notice the benefits starting to flow into many areas of our Life. Creativity, peace and the Love of Mother Nature can all be sparked by this process. I was taught that the main attributes of the Divine are Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth and Love. Sananda has taught me that on this plane the main qualities we have to co-create with the Divine are Life,  Truth and Love. They are the golden triangle of creation.

Principle, Mind, Soul and Spirit are infinite and always in place.

We can translate Life, Truth and Love into an infinite myriad of creations and find the Joy of creation just as we did as a child coloring with crayons on a pure white sheet of paper. Life, Truth and Love easily translate to Water, Walking and Words (but of course are not limited to these aspects). Water is Love in the Elemental sense, Truth is our Words and Walking, or Movement, is Life. In a very Real sense this is being in the flow or allowing our good.

As we are flowing, allowing our good and being in the Life-giving breath of Mother Nature, we can be transported to feeling thankful for the flowers, trees, sky and Us. Our beingness. This Presence allows us to awaken to our Good. The feeling of being an integral part of, and not separate from, all that is can inspire us to Love ourselves, our neighbors, including the stars and trees, and the Divine.

In many native cultures trees are called the Standing People and are revered for their unconditional service to humanity and our beautiful blue and green planet. As we allow our mindfulness of our connections with all that is, we see and feel that trees, animals, bees and birds are each unique sentient beings with their own part to play in unfolding The Divine Plan for Heaven on Earth.

So when you want to create something wonderful in your Life ask yourself, “What is the Life of it?” Does a trip to Alaska have the feeling of Life for you? Does it have a feeling of Love?  Is it True for you? On large creations ask yourself these questions over a period of two-to-three weeks. Your Water, Walking and Words practice will give you the time and presence to see if your wishes are Real for you.

Twelve of your most powerful words to use in your creations with the Divine and Mother Earth are thank you, I Love you, Love, peace, harmony, joy, unity, oneness and fun.

Thank you.

WATER, WALKING and WORDS, Part 3

We create our own reality through thoughts, feelings, faith, cherished love, pictures and WORDS. Our words are our command, as they contain air one of our sacred connections to our Divine Creator, the sound frequency when Spoken, and the thought-symbol-feeling quality that creates worlds.

So, combine the health-giving properties of pure spring water (not in plastic), charged by holding it in your hands, with the feeling of love and gratitude, the well-being properties of walking and the creative power of words, and you have a simple practice to enhance every aspect of your life.

The Universe responds especially to our words, “I am” and “I will.” When you add affirmations to your walks, you will add to your manifestations. “I am that, I am joy,” will lighten your feeling tone. “I am that, I am love,” will help you awaken to your good. “I am that, I am free,” will help you expand your horizons and become inspired.

Also walking in silent mindfulness may give you Peace and a solution to a problem you have been working on. Notice how thoughts and words make you feel as that is a key to your well being. You can easily change thoughts and words that make you feel bad to others that lift your spirit.

Simplicity is one of my favorite qualities. I have been a healing practitioner for most of my life (Prayer, Healing the child within, Channeling, Laughing, Love and Energy Work). I’m always looking for the most effective, fun, simple and creative ways to do things.

I hope you will enjoy your walks in Mother Nature with your pure water at hand and either the sounds of nature, silence, affirmations of your choice or a combination of all. When I walk I like to include, every now and then, jumping, skipping and hopping. Also, the feeling of lazy wandering, stopping every now and then to just breathe and take it all in. Observing the infinite variety of colors, textures, birds, flowers and trees just makes me happy.

“When we walk, we naturally go to the fields and woods: what would become of us, if we walked only in a garden or mall?” (from Walking: A Journal, by Henry David Thoreau)

WATER, WALKING and WORDS, Part 2

Walking in Nature is your number one Key to Well-Being.

Our bodies are designed to move. Everything in Nature is in constant movement, even if just at the atomic level as in rocks. Breezes, clouds, rivers, oceans, ice flows, leaves, grasses, animals and ….. Us.

We are in constant movement. A very popular Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh, teaches many around the world about Being here now while walking (You Are Here, Shambala Press 2009). This alone is a healing, as we are designed to be Joy at our core. Another popular spiritual teacher, Eckhart Tolle, wrote one of my favorite books about Nature, Stillness Speaks. He writes, “Nature has been waiting for us as it were, for millions of years.”

The movement of walking in Mother Nature enhances all of our systems, heart, lungs, muscles, etc, though the most beneficial part is well-being even if just for a moment. When you walk silently in Nature for just 20 minutes, you arrive at the same frequency of inner peace that you would having meditated, sitting in a room, for the same length of time. The added benefit of being outside is Prana, the energy of pure air from trees, sunshine, flowers, plants, water and the Spirit of Mother Nature. We are designed to walk.

As we see the horizon in the distance, our body and emotions balance themselves. Sananda teaches us to contemplate infinity every day which we do as we see the horizon or star gaze. Watching the sun rise connects you to Mother Earth, and the sunset prepares you for a restful sleep. These activities are so simple but contribute to our wellness, on so many levels, reminding us we are a part of the Whole Earth and universe. We are not looking at nature as a photograph, but are immersed in Mother Nature and are very much a part of it, not separate or isolated from all that is. We each have a very unique part to play upon this alive world.

The photo I took is a Mimosa tree that just for the moment caught the rays of sunlight. I live for the joy of these moments and hope you will, too, in discovering such a simple and fun way to enhance your peace, health, well being, inspiration, clarity and a renewed love of birds, trees, animals and the Elemental world.

Next week… Words.
