First I'll define what meditation is. It's a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness either to realize some benefit or and as end in itself. Meditation includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force, and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. Meditation may involve generating an emotional state for the purpose of analyzing that state — such as anger, hatred, etc. — or cultivating particular mental response to various phenomena such as compassion.
First find a quiet place where no one can interrupt. Shut all phone ringers off, make sure no pets will bother you, or children. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in and hold it for a second and breathe out all the air. Try to clear your mind. Let all thoughts drift away. Do this from anywhere from 5 min to an hour daily. Best time to meditate is when you wake up in the morning. The more you practice meditating the easier it will be. If its hard to find a quiet place, use headphones and put on your favorite meditation music. Many people follow guided meditation so they can quiet down their mind. Many people benefit from meditating with crystals. Crystals help bring you to a meditative state quicker. It helps you to relax and will bring you to a peaceful state of being.
Many people say they can not quiet the mind. The truth is of course you can. If you put your mind to it, anyone can do it. Practice and actually taking the step to do it is all it requires. Best of all it's free!

The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese words: rei meaning Universal Spirit and ki meaning life force energy. In Reiki, hands are the channels for energy (ki) guided by the Universal Spirit (Rei). Mystics of all cultures speak of the physical universe being made of an underlying form of energy which is subject to or affected by thought.
Reiki is a flexible, ever-evolving form of healing, relaxation and personal development. Practicing Reiki helps bring about harmony in the body, leading to a deep sense of relaxation. As well as having this wonderfully calming affect on the healee, the person giving a Reiki treatment also receives the healing effect of the Universal energy that flows through them.
This is said to be an intelligent energy in that it seems to know where to go for healing to take place and what is needed. It never does any harm. The energy does not come from the Reiki practitioner. The practitioner is a channel for the healing energy.When the flow of the "Life Force Energy" is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way...
Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results.
Some Of The Reiki Healing Health Benefits:
When we are relaxed, stress-free, we are able to restore our natural ability to heal.
Long term practice of whole-body reiki will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and build-up toxins and cope with anxiety and depression.
When a person is in good health, regular therapy will increase the bodies built-in defences. This will manifest itself as confidence and outward harmony in dealing with everyday events. The person will gain a positive outlook on life.
Reiki will also provide additional energy required to recover from illness.
A Reiki healing session can induce an extremely comfortable state of being that can bring alteration in the clients consciousness.
If used with other natural therapies (meditation, crystals, aroma therapy, Bach Flower remedies, homeopathy, etc.) Reiki will reinforce their effect.
It can be used also as complementary therapy, because Reiki is truly a complementary care. It complements and enhances the health care the patient receives in the hospital or from other health care providers.
Reiki healing complements Eastern and Western medicine and everybody can benefit from it.It is beneficial to the health of woman (even pregnant), man, children and it is also excellent to be used on animals (dogs, cats, horses), plants, water, etc.
Reiki healing energy is a tool for use at any moment, any time, any where for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and quick energy.
HOW REIKI HEALING ENERGY WORKS?
The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs have their own energy field which is continually changing. All conditions of disease are rooted in this energy system. If our "life force" is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well being.
Reiki Healing Energy provides means to balance the human energy fields (Auras)and energy centers (Chakras) to create conditions needed for the bodies healing system to function.
The Reiki practitioner assists the client to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple laying on of hands. By the use of ancient healing symbols the practitioner channels the Universal Life Force energy allowing it to flow where is needed to bring the energy centers into alignement.
The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. He/She plays an instrumental part in the healing process, but ultimately it is up to the healee to manifest harmony and balance in their own life.

What is a Medium?
Mediums have the gift of connecting us with spirit. The purpose of spirit communication is to help and heal us. It can put closure following a loved ones sudden death. It can help you move on with your life. Some people visit mediums so it can give them proof of life after death. Mediums can prove to us that the deceased soul is still with us and guiding us when we need the help. This can give meaning and direction to our lives. Knowing that spirit can guide us through our physical experience on earth is mind blowing and helps us understand our existence. Just knowing there's life after our physical body dies, helps us live to our fullest with out fear or regret.
Visiting a medium is a life changing experience. If you visit a medium and you didn't feel they were "legit", that does not mean that every medium will be that way. If spirit wants to come through at the time you visit the medium they will. Every medium is different. Some communicate better then others. It also depends on how well spirit is able to communicate with the medium. It goes both ways. In the spirit world they also have to learn how to communicate with us.
In mediumship, you have to practice to become good just like a baseball player or being a dancer, you have to practice to make your skills work at its best. We all have the gifts in us but we have to recognize it and practice it to make it the best we can. Even the most talented people make mistakes and have there bad days. Humans are not perfect but we strive to be. Understand mediums are kind hearted humans that want to help and heal you. There is no dark side to them. In fact they are against the dark side and will not let and negativity in. When they become real good at communicating they spend there lifetime healing and helping the world through spirit. Let a medium be your life changing experience if you choose to. Its always best to get recommended to a medium. As in any business there are always posers so be careful who you go to.
Not only can mediums talk to the dead, they are psychic as well. But if you go to a psychic they may not be able to connect with the dead. Every body has there own gifts or skills that can help heal you. No two healers are the same!
Rebecca Rosen explains the difference between a psychic and a medium and why the distinction between the two is very important
Whether one refers to him- or herself as a psychic medium, spiritual medium, intuitive medium or any other similar title, it's all essentially the same thing—the emphasis being on talking to spirits in the afterlife. While I refer to myself as a "psychic medium," there is a big difference between a psychic and a medium.
A psychic isn't necessarily a medium, but a medium is a psychic. This is an important distinction and a good place to start, because I meet clients all the time who misunderstand the difference and confuse the two.
Psychics tune into the energy of people or objects by feeling or sensing elements of their past, present and future. Simply put, psychics rely on their basic sense of intuition and psychic ability to gather information for the person being read.
Mediums take it a step further. A medium uses his or her psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. This means mediums rely on the presence of non-physical energy outside of themselves for the information relevant to the person being read.
Similarly, all medical students are required to take the basic entry-level medical courses, such as physics, biology and chemistry. Premed students are trained in the basics before moving on to higher-level courses and choosing their medical specialty, such as cardiology, pediatrics or oncology.
The emphasis of my work is mediumship: making connections with and delivering messages from people who are no longer living to those who still are. I receive information primarily and directly from the dead, spirit guides and angels.
While there are a few different forms of mediumship, I work as a mental medium, which means I communicate with spirits through the use of telepathy. Spirits impress my mind and body with thoughts and feelings that come in the form of "clairs." I mentally "hear" (clairaudience), "see" (clairvoyance), "know" (claircognizance) and/or "feel" (clairsentience) messages from spirits. I like to say that I act as the bridge between the spiritual and the physical world, with the intention of healing both worlds.
Tuning into the past, present and future
Another important distinction is that while psychic readings often focus on predicting future events, mediums primarily tune into past and present issues. It's my opinion that predicting the future, while sometimes helpful, runs the risk of disempowering people. Always remember that you do have a say in how your future unfolds. Despite what any psychic or medium may "see" in your future, it is important to remember you were given the gift of free will when you came into this world, and at any moment in time you can absolutely redirect your course and create the life you want by changing your thoughts and actions. Psychic information is often just insight into what potentially could happen based on the road you are currently traveling—and it should be used only as a guideline to help you make the best choices for yourself.
Just as in any profession, mediums have specialties and areas of expertise. Unlike Allison Dubois in Medium, I don't work with the police in solving crimes. Or, unlike Melinda Gordon in The Ghost Whisperer, I don't help tormented souls cross over. Over the years, it has become very clear that my job lies in working with souls who have happily crossed over to the other side and, for the most part, are at peace. Sure, they may have regrets or unresolved issues, but they're not haunted or lost. Oftentimes, it's the living that are not at peace. The main goal of your deceased loved ones and spirit guides is to assist you in moving on, free of grief and struggle, so you can fulfill your life lessons and enjoy your time here on earth.
Some people ask if I, much like a doctor, chose this specialty as my service. On a basic human level, the answer is no...it chose me. On a soul level, though, I am certain this is what I signed up to do in this lifetime. My responsibility lies in simply acknowledging my "gift" and what comes naturally for me, and embracing the calling to serve as a messenger for Spirit.
From time to time, it may be helpful to seek out the counsel of someone objective for guidance or connection with spirit, and/or to gain a clearer read on your life. If a psychic, medium or any other intuitive healer speaks to you, I encourage you to set your intentions and then simply let go and go with the flow. Spirit will guide you as to who and what is in your highest and best good in that moment. Also, please remember that no one knows you better than yourself, and no one has a closer connection with your deceased loved ones and spiritual guides than you do. By learning to go within, listen to and trust your own inner voice, you gain access to everything you'll ever need to know. And what could be better than that?
Rebecca Rosen has served as a bridge between this world and those who have crossed over to the other side for the past 10 years. Her work has led to many guest appearances, including Entertainment Tonight, The Rachael Ray Show and Nightline, and her first book, Spirited: Connect to the Guides All Around You (HarperCollins). Due to the high and growing demand for spiritual truth, she has committed herself fulltime to serving as a medium and also educates thousands of people around the country with her seminars, lectures and workshops.

Angels are celestial beings that have never incarnated on this earth. Which means they were never humans. Angels are god like beings which work directly with God. They protect, guide, repair and heal us. When an unexplained miracle happens, it is most likely an angel at work. If you call on your angels they can help you with any situation. Angels bring pure messages of love, wisdom, and power directly from the creator. Surround yourself with angels everyday ask them to protect you through out the day. If you want to learn more about angels there are so many different archangels you can call on. Google search archangels and you can read about all the different arch angels. My favorite is archangel Michael. He has helped me in so many ways from finding a parking spot to giving me great protection when I needed it. I thank the angels for surrounding me with love and protection.
Metaphysical explained in my personal point of view
Did you ever have experiences that you just can't explain? Metaphysics goes beyond our 5 senses. Its the knowing beyond our physical world.
It's the study of the unknown universe. It tries to help us understand that we are more then our physical bodies and material world. Science can not be relied on to explain reality and the unknown. No one can explain our higher power scientifically, but somehow most of us seem to have a knowing that it exists. Metaphysics is the philosophy of being and the world.
All of the topics I write about are unexplained scientifically but through many modalities, people have been healed.
The supernatural, paranormal, spirit guides, angels, mediums, psychics, reiki healers, past life regressions, crystal healers, astrology, palm readers, tarot cards, aura readings, etc. are all considered metaphysical.
Did you know that EMF radiation from your cell phone and many other electronics is a health risk?
The EMF radiation enters your electromagnetic field and disrupts your frequency. It distorts the balance of the body and its communication system. The healthy human body resonates at around 10 hertz. Frequencies above that create physical, emotional and mental havoc.
As we all know its, hard to stay away from EMF radiation. I don't know one person that does not have a cell phone or use a wireless computer. Even wireless cable or microwave oven give off harmful radiation. The best thing for us to is try to protect ourselves.
Of COURSE I am a crystal healer and I want to teach you how to protect yourself with either wearing a stone or placing stones near areas where high radiation is present.
Personally, wearing a stone on a necklace is my fav. But to have the extra protection, place stones as well in those areas. For example, near your computer, wireless routers, kitchens or anywhere you think!
We (as in Mother Earth) thankfully have a few stones to choose from. There are many other stones to choose from but here are the ones I like these the best. :)
Shungite, Black Tourmaline, Hematite, Pyrite, Lodestone
I wear a long black cord with a piece of shungite stone attached. I also wear hematite and black tourmaline at times. I place lodestone and black tourmaline around my work space. I feel fully protected :)
I do have all these stones in stock. Get in touch with me or search my site. Its worth the few dollars spent! If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you!!! & Have a blessed weekend!!
Be well, Feel well, & Live well. The choice is yours! Make the change ;)
Love ALways, Mystical Rock ;)
Do you ever feel like you have negative thoughts or bad feelings? or maybe you feel negative energy around you? There are many ways to get rid of these feelings. One way I found that rids negativity quickly, is burning incense. It helps relieve these feelings almost immediately. Burn the incense of your choice and close your eyes and meditate for a minute. See the difference!! These are based on my experiences. Everyone has their own experiences with what nature has brought. Its good to experiment for yourself because everyone is made differently. I have all these wonderful items available in my shop.
As a side note:
These are also great ways to clear your crystal and stones. There are many other ways to cleanse your crystals click here for other cleansing methods.
1- Sage is my favorite to burn. Waft it around your area or space. Beware the scent is very strong. But I love it!
2- Palo Santo is a wood that can be burned as an incense. The smell is much more desirable. You can also waft this around your area or just let it burn.
3- Sandelwood incense is another great incense to burn in your space. This gets rid of all negativity as well.
4- Frankincense & Myrrh is great incense for anger, anxiety and stress! You can get some at my store :)
Again all the incense will work for the release of negativity, anger, anxiety and stress.
Read about it at this website! You might be one of them. I for sure am!http://www.2012-spiritual-growth-prophecies.com/indigo-child.html
Talk to your stone and tell it to help take away your nightmares. Place one of these stones under your pillow when you go to sleep.
