Reiki Principles: Old Traditions From the New Perspective

Published

on

Reiki principles image

Reiki principles represent a mystical aspect of the art of managing the vital energy. They are a guide for our spiritual path. By integrating Reiki principles into our lives, we provide ourselves with everything we need for effective Reiki practice, spiritual development, and harmonious life.

Many Reiki practitioners get confused by the huge number of different versions and interpretations of the principles. Moreover, each master insists on the correctness of his version, which differs significantly from each other. Each master declares the authenticity, tradition and full compliance with the spirit of Mikao Usui of the principles he teaches his students. Thus, in modern reality, there is no single approach to the formulation of spiritual principles, nor to their understanding, which leads to the impossibility of their effective practical implementation.

The key point in understanding Reiki principles is the level of consciousness to which humanity comes in connection with the transition of the planet’s new frequencies of vibrations. Let me remind you that Mikao Usui did not develop these principles himself, but received them from Emperor Meiji, who ruled in Japan in the late XIX-early XX centuries. The vibrations of the planet of that time resonated with these principles. However, now, after more than a century, the spiritual principles of Reiki require adaptation to the energy of our time and modern society. That is why in this article I’m going to share with you new formulations of the traditional Reiki principles, adapted to a new level of human consciousness.

Traditional Reiki Principles vs. Modern Reiki Principles

New Reiki Principles Image

As you can see, the traditional Reiki principles bring our attention to the future moment. That’s why many Reiki practitioners can’t find a way to practice them in life. Our subconsciousness reads them literally “I will” is not NOW. On the contrary, the new modern principles are calling for focusing on the present moment “here and now”.

The phrase “just for today” is translated by our subconsciousness as the time limit. “Today” can be interpreted as “in an hour”, “in two hours”, “later today” etc. But when we use the phrase “here and now” our subconsciousness understands that we’re focusing our intention on the present moment.

In my opinion, these two adjustments are very important and bring us to the right mindset for Reiki principles practice.

Why Is It So Important to Practice Reiki Principles Consciously?

Not every Master talks about it, but you should know that each Reiki principle contains a hidden energy code aimed at the transformation of your consciousness. Unfortunately, not every Reiki practitioner knows how to activate these codes. Let me share with you the basic description of every code. Obviously, I can’t give you all the instructions for activating the codes within one article. But I will share with you a short explanation of each of them. Simply reading the explanation of these codes stimulates the energy movement towards the transformation of your consciousness, understanding the basic Universal Laws and the disclosure of your inner potential.

Code “Here And Now”

This code is contained in each Reiki principle. “Here and now” is not just an indication of the importance of the present moment, but a key to the mystery of spiritual awakening.

“Here and now” is the only reality. Only by being able to be “here and now”, we have the ability to control our lives and our reality. That is why every person needs a revival in “here and now” because it is the basis of true spiritual consciousness. It is the form of consciousness that leads not only the person but the whole world to the vibrations of healing, harmony, peace, and happiness.

We need to make every moment of our lives complete. If you need to do something, do it right now. Do not wait for tomorrow or a better moment. Do it now!

We need to learn how to live “here and now” – in the present moment. Stop sacrificing your present for a better future. Tomorrow never comes. Tomorrow is always tomorrow. The future is illusory. By missing out on the joy of the present moment for the illusory future, you will always regret that you sacrificed that moment for something that never came. Then you’ll start to think that maybe there is still an opportunity to catch up in the future what you missed once in the past. Thus, the moment “here and now” is lost in the eternal struggle between the past and the future.

Reiki Principle #1: “Here and Now I’m Free From Anger”

This Code was partially reflected in the traditional version of the first Reiki principle. Mikao Usui said, “Just for today, I will NOT be angry”. However, the application of the traditional version of this principle can lead to negative consequences, because our subconscious mind does not perceive the word “NOT“. Therefore, when we focus on the statement “I will NOT be angry”, we direct our energy to attract anger.

The new energy code (Modern Reiki Principle) concentrates energy on the FREEDOM from anger. But what does it mean?

reiki principle anger image

Anger is a way of expressing aggressive energy. When we are told “do not be angry”, we are called to block the anger within ourselves. Instead, the opposite should be done – to experience the feeling of anger totally. We should find out answers on following questions:

  • For what purpose did our Higher Self give us this powerful energy?
  • What life lesson does the Universe want to teach us?
  • What do we need to see in ourselves, that we might not have noticed before?

And once you have found the answers to these questions you need to think about how you can express your anger through conscious actions.

Reiki Principle #2: “Here and Now I’m Free From Worry”

This code is reflected in the traditional version of the second Reiki principle, which says: “Just for today, I will not worry!”. However, concentrating on the statement “WILL NOT worry”, we are growing more anxiety within. Therefore, it is necessary to concentrate on the freedom from worry.

Worrying, like anger, is based on fear. People obsessed with worrying are afraid of losing control of a situation that may be dangerous or inconvenient for them. Therefore, you can get rid of the anxiety only by realizing the cause of your fear.

reiki principle worry image

For activating the energy of this Principle you can use the following affirmations for your everyday practice:

  • “Here and now I am free from worry!»
  • “Only good things can happen to me and my family!»
  • “Here and now I am absolutely calm!»
  • “I live in a perfect world where everything is good!»
  • “Here and now the Universe takes care of me!»
  • “I trust the Universe, I trust myself and I move forward!»

Reiki Principle #3: “Here And Now I Am Grateful”

One of the most important Universal Laws is the Law of Gratitude. Most people neglect it, and some do not even know about its existence. Why is this Law so important? Because when it is violated, there is a disharmony between what you receive and what you give. Energy stops moving. It stagnates and eventually turns into a kind of “energy swamp”. Over time, your dreams, material well-being, health, success, relationships with people start drowning in this swamp. Your life begins to lose its brightness and gradually fades away, turning into a routine, which is just a reflection of “energy swamp”.

Gratitude creates trust with the flow of life.

reiki principle gratitude image

By showing gratitude, we recognize the greatness of the Creative power of the Universe, and at the same time, the divine spark of this Power within ourselves.

There are so many things in the world that we should be grateful for: the blue sky above our heads, the air we breathe, the birds’ singing we can enjoy, the beauty of the flowers, the purring of a kitten… and you can go on forever! Each of us can make a list of what gives him a sense of joy and happiness. However, in the daily hustle and bustle, people often stop noticing these gifts and appreciate them. Instead of this, they take all the gifts from the Universe for granted.

Instead of always rushing somewhere in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, stop for a moment, look around, and you will find that you have many reasons for gratitude. Start writing your “Gratitude Diary” every evening. Write down everything you are grateful for and read it out loud. These actions will easily set the energy of your life in motion and you will be able to get out of the “energy swamp”.

Reiki Principle #4: Here And Now I Work Honestly

“Work” in the spiritual sense is, first of all, work on self-development and moral improvement, which is a spiritual path. Such work is not limited by the time frame, it endless. Having embarked on the path of spirituality, you have taken responsibility for your life and its quality. Now your main goal is continuous self-improvement. Work on yourself does not imply excessive work, torture of the physical body or rigid austerity.

reiki principle work image

As we know, in the past in order to achieve spiritual development people sacrifice the material side of life. That was an imbalanced path to spirituality. Because spiritual and material sides of life should be balanced, like Yin and Yang. The whole purpose of life on this planet is to learn how to live in the material world according to spiritual principles. We shouldn’t sacrifice one for another. Instead of that, we should find the balance between material and spiritual components of life.

We should learn how to take our spiritual “work” as serious as we do our regular work.

Reiki Principle #5: Here And Now I express Love And Kindness To Everybody

Unfortunately, nowadays most people have a misleading understanding of what love is. The modern conception of love is built on the basic needs of the human ego. It is the ego that demands love. But the very understanding of love from the ego perspective is illusory.

reiki principle love image

From the ego perspective, people think that if you give love, you must get something back. Therefore, most people tend to give love on the condition that they receive love back. No one in this world wants unrequited love, it only causes disappointment, sadness, tears, and other negative emotions. In other words, the original motivation has the opposite to love intention – to give in order to receive. However, putting love on “the commodity exchange relations” level is the frequency of very low vibrations that lead to the degradation of human society.

The main problem of modern society is the consumer attitude towards love. This is a result of the disconnection with the higher self. A man has forgotten that the source of love is within himself, not outside. Of course, everyone is able to Express his love in the material world, but one should not confuse the external manifestations of love with the true source within each living being.

The Bottom Line

Reiki principles are not just beliefs. We should integrate them into our everyday lives. We should practice what we believe in. Start with just trying to be present in each moment. Live here and now! Then let your anger and worry go, free yourself from negative emotions. Be grateful for every little thing in your life. Express love and kindness, and you will see that they come back to you doubled. Practice Reiki principles every day – this is the self-work you committed to do when you received your first Reiki Attunement. And do this self-work honestly – since this is the fourth Reiki principle!

10 Spiritual Movies Every Seeker Should See

Published

Spiritual Movies Image

In this article, we have collected spiritual movies that are directly or indirectly related to spiritual development, sacred knowledge, reflections on the true nature of man and his unlimited possibilities, and on the ways of self-discovery. These spiritual movies give the multidimensional perception of reality and the evolutionary development of mankind. They films expand consciousness and perception of the world, as well as stimulate the thought process.

Here they are 10 great spiritual movies to watch!

Top 10 Spiritual Movies

#1 Samsara, 2011

It is not a secret that civilization turns a human into a robot. This is basically the message of this movie.

Nature consists of an eternal stillness expressed through harmonious movement. All that modern man creates is the hustle and bustle of cities. Cows turned into mechanisms for the production of milk, people turned into machines for the production of unnecessary rubbish and garbage for putting on the outside and stuffing “inside”.

Religions do not unite people in the pursuit of heaven but kneel and twist them in a meaningless circle of biomass.

In the eternal cycle of our existence, Samsara appears as a mill, a wheel of zeroing and renewal of life.

This movie shows the other side of modern world “progress” and definitely makes you re-think your values!

#2 Kundun, 1997

Kundun Movie Image

This movie immerses us in the era of the last independent years of Tibet, the years when this state enjoyed its peace. The movie tells the story of the life of the 14th Dalai Lama, about his life path, choice and tragic fate, which he did not choose, but which overtook him when he was not ready.

For a deeper immersion into the culture and life of Tibet, the movie reveals the history of the ruler of this state, enlightening us in who the Dalai Lama is, how he is elected and what powers he has.

Evil, in the form of occupation by China, in 1951 happened gradually, but at the same time rapidly bit by bit destroying the culture of Tibet. And now the young wise Dalai Lama has to stand up for his country and his people in order to achieve peace. But what can he really do to save his country? He who has never seen evil and violence, who has lived in silence and enlightenment. What can he do against the powerful Communist China that oppresses everything on its path?

The movie is not so much about the history of Tibet but rather about what independence really is and what price should be paid for achieving it. And all this is the background for the disclosure of a strong, inflexible ruler who resists the invaders with all his strength.

#3 Hare Krishna! The Mantra, the Movement and the Swami Who Started It, 2017

Don’t be afraid to watch this movie – it’s not campaigning for anything. After watching it, you will not be dragged into a sect, you will not have to pray, you will not be hypnotized! This is a movie about a person with a strong spirit, an open heart and a great purpose.

Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna movement, gave the youth what the society could never give. He taught them to seek peace inside and to live without cruelty.

This movie shows how wonderful it is when you have a great mission and purpose in life. And when there is a goal to change the world for the better, then the right people will always find you.

If you remember history, there were many other peaceful revolutionaries. If we talk about religion, Jesus was one of them too. So this movie is about history, about inspiration, about the power of the human spirit, about the purity of the heart, but NOT about religion.

#4 Zen, 2009

Zen Movie Image

This movie will immerse you in the atmosphere of the XIII century when a monk Dogen Zenji from Japan goes to China in search of spirituality and true Buddhism. On the way of the main character, there is a monk who teaches the subtleties of meditation — the leading method of enlightenment. Having returned home, Dogen Zenji does not lose faith in the ideas rooted in him and begins to convey to the people the knowledge about Zen.

“Zen” literally allows you to explore the inside of the transformation of a man during meditation. This movie has a great educational value because it reveals the true meaning of Zen Buddhism, which, unlike other spiritual schools, pays great attention to the understanding of reality and self-awareness.

The movie quite clearly conveys the essence of Zen, its difference from other schools of Buddhism and the lack of dogmas, rules and blind copying of meaningless traditions.

#5 Little Buddha, 1993

Little Buddha Movie Image

After the death of Lama Dorje, Tibet Buddhist monks begin to look around the world for children, which embodied the soul of the deceased. They find an American boy, Jesse, and two Indians — Raju and Gita who became the object of reincarnation. In parallel, the movie shows us the legend of Prince Siddhartha, who once began his ascent to the heights of the spirit.

This movie is clear and interesting to watch for everyone. There is no need to look for subtext – all the basic ideas are at a glance. “Little Buddha” can elevate and give impetus to the development of any person.

#6 Ashes and Snow, 2005

Ashes And Snow Movie Image

This movie is a unique project of photographer Gregory Colbert. For 13 years he made 32 expeditions to the most remote corners of our planet. He was listening to the voices of the animals and found a common language with them. In his beautiful movie, Gregory Colbert shows us the world of animals and the world of people living on the same planet as a whole.

We live in the heart of fuss. We are constantly in a hurry and never have enough time. Our pulse frantically measures the passing time, we suffocate, freeze, and constantly feel lonely. We get older, but we can not find the answer to the only important question: Why are we here?

This movie tells us: “Wherever you are at this moment, there is a place for love. There is love inside you. Sometimes it is very difficult to feel it, to find it, but nonetheless, it is there inside you. Don’t fuss, don’t rush. Give yourself time to feel the unity of the whole world. Everything is made up of everything, and nothing is permanent.

This movie is like a tuning fork for your heart. Dissolve into it, follow the elephants, soar with the birds, listen to the song of the desert. There is absolute infinite love inside each of us that makes us one. You have everything you need to be who you want to be.

#7 Powder, 1995

Powder Movie Image

‘Powder’ is a strange nickname students give to their new classmate Jeremy. People are afraid of his unusual appearance, deathly pale skin, sizzling gaze penetrating into the heart of the interlocutor. But soon they realize that Powder has supernatural powers, and there are raging flames of incredible energy behind his cold appearance. So who is he – the mistake of nature or its crown, a new stage of human evolution?

We can say that “Powder” is a movie about one of the many angels sent to Earth to show people their life and essence from the inside and the way they really are. This movie is deeply spiritual, it touches on many different topics that remain a mystery for science, and which people call “miracles”.

People are amazing creatures. We invent a lot of different devices to penetrate deep into space, earth, ocean — and all this just to see something new and unknown. But quite otherwise we begin to behave if we see something unusual not in the unknown depths, but right next to us.

Teenagers are cruel, and adults also do not always differ in mercy. Many people are willing to do anything to become “not like everyone else” and shock society. But what is life like for a person who did not make a decision to stand out, but nevertheless is very unique and very different from everyone else?

This movie tells the story of a person with great potential, but at the same time rejected by society.

#8 Mr. Nobody, 2009

This is a movie about parallel realities and about how each of our steps creates many worlds where we continue to live, but we just play different roles. Only astral travelers know about the existence of these realities because they are able to penetrate into their own parallel lives.

Many people do not like this movie because it is very deep and powerful and people who have poor creative and mental abilities are likely not to see the deep meaning inherent in it.

At the end of this movie, we understand that all events occur simultaneously, and the fact that time seems to be stretched in space is just an illusion, a distortion that occurs in our head.

This movie makes you reevaluate your life, your actions, and your choices that you have to do almost every minute of your life.

This movie is for people who usually have deep thoughts about life, who can make unpredictable choices. After watching this movie it will not easily let you go. It stimulates lots of deep thoughts and self-analysis. And you start to understand that “anything is possible until a choice is made” on a deeper level.

#9 Mother! 2017

Have you often wondered how similar the physical laws of your body are to those outside your body? The blood is coursing through your veins like rivers on earth. How some microorganisms parasitize others. That all living things are made of cells. And that on the material level, the connection between a human being and the Earth that gave birth to him is inseparable.

Darren Aronofsky, the director of this film, is a talented pathologist of human perception of the world. In this movie, he tries to rudely cut down in our consciousness a new glance on the paradigm of morally-oriented Christian psychology. And more specifically – its importance on our planet.

Skillfully quoting Christian symbols and allegories, the Director dares to ask a question to God directly or rather, wants to charge Him: “Why? What did you start all this for?”

#10 Lucy, 2014

The main character in the performance of Scarlet Johansson, involuntarily becoming a drug courier, accidentally absorbs a huge amount of drugs. This substance is a hormone that is produced in a woman in the sixth week of pregnancy. As a result of an overdose, Lucy’s brain begins to work at 20 percent and more. She has the ability to move objects, read other people’s thoughts, control matter, and even travel through time.

This movie makes us wonder: “How would life change if we used 20% of our brain?”. And also gives us some answers:

  • The first stage would be full self-control.
  • On the second stage, we would get control over others. But this will require 40% of brain power.
  • The third stage would give us the management of the matter.

And at the very end of the movie, we discover the hypothesis of what would happen if we use the capabilities of our brain 100%.

Crown Chakra Blockage Symptoms And Ways To Heal It

Published

on

Crown Chakra Blockage Image

Crown chakra is the seventh primary chakra. It’s also called “Sahasrara” which means “thousand-petaled”. It is the highest point that determines the spiritual life of a person. Knowledge about this “thousand-petalled Lotus” is very important for those who seek to find their spiritual path. Therefore if you’re involved in any spiritual practice it’s necessary to know what symptoms indicate Crown Chakra blockage and how to heal it.

In this article, I’ll share with you my research on how to recognize Crown Chakra blockage and powerful ways to heal it. But first, let’s talk about the the importance of Crown chakra in our energy system and its structure. You see, without this information, it would be hard to understand the condition of your Sahasrara.

The Importance of Sahasrara

Sahasrara is the point through which a soul comes out of the body after death.

Thanks to the crown chakra, we are able to learn, to realize, to accept, and to connect our consciousness to universal love and infinite knowledge.

With the full disclosure of Sahasrara, people find a state of calm and balance. They change their consciousness and let go of their past and torment. They reach the awareness of the integrity of the individual and the perception of yourself as an important element of the Universe.

The Crown chakra disclosure leads to the rapid development of the other six chakras.

Location of Sahasrara Chakra

Crown chakra is located at the top of the head. If we consider more exactly where the crown chakra, is the area of the Fontanelle.

Crown Chakra Structure

Crown chakra opening symptoms

Each chakra looks like a rotating cone, the diameter of which is from 2 to 4 inches. As it enters the human body, the shape of the chakra narrows, “connecting” further to the spine.

Crown chakra consists of 1000 petals, forming 20 layers, 50 pieces each. This number is very symbolic. After all, it represents a variety of spiritual paths that are open to human achievement.

In the center of Crown chakra is a circle depicting the mandalas of the Moon and the Sun. The circle, which symbolizes the full moon, is the crown of the spiritual development of the soul in the physical body. Its combination with the Sun allows to connect various energy channels, directing them to the Central Nadi – Sushumna.

Sahasrara symbol represents the dual nature of the Earth and the need to return to integrity. There is a miniature dot in the center of the circle which represents emptiness. Approaching this point is possible only with a very long and conscious spiritual development.

Crown Chakra Color

Sahasrara Chakra Test Image

If we look at the scheme of energy centers, the purple dot on the human body will tell us where Crown chakra is.

This color is unusual and very complex. It is a combination of two tones – blue and red. These colors, which are opposite in meaning, combine together to form purple. Purple is considered a magical and mysterious color.

In addition, purple is associated with the divine. It is a symbol of spiritual development and represents the connection with the Cosmos.

In addition to the purple Sahasrara Lotus petals also contain white color and radiate all the rainbow tones that eventually merge together. The harmonious combination of all these colors represents the ability of a person to comprehend the superconsciousness.

What Is Sahasrara Responsible For?

Physically its work affects the pineal gland and the brain. If we consider the spiritual aspect, Sahasrara chakra has the ability to absorb and produce the highest frequency of Kundalini energy.

If a person doesn’t have a Crown chakra blockage, he is an altruist, he has boundless energy and the ability to sympathize. In addition, he/she does even the most routine work with great inspiration and creativity. These people are attractive. They like to wear bright clothes, enjoy life and inspire others with their example.

Signs Of Opened Crown Chakra

People with opened Sahasrara live outside of duality.

If Crown Chakra works to the maximum, it has a direct impact on the brain. At the same time, Sahasrara produces higher vibrations that change the perception of both the person and the people around him/her.

Signs Of Opened Sahasrara are:

  • understanding the possibility of living without conflict;
  • getting answers to your questions from the Universe;
  • a strong connection to God and the Universe;
  • understanding and accepting your own uniqueness;
  • perception of yourself as a formed personality;
  • no feeling of annoyance, anger, and fear;
  • the ability to analyze and manage your own emotions, as well as to understand the causes of their occurrence;
  • a sense of oneness with the world;
  • harmony of body and soul.

To learn more about symptoms and signs of the Crown chakra opening read my article “Crown Chakra Opening Symptoms You Should Be Aware Of“.

Crown Chakra Blockage

Good news is that complete Crown Chakra blockage never occurs!

However, if a person is not engaged in any spiritual practices, his/her Sahasrara is open at its initial stage. This state of the seventh chakra leads to a feeling of own independence (Note: independence and freedom are not the same. While freedom has a positive meaning, independence is based on duality and has destructive power). Such a person doesn’t feel any connection with the Universe. This condition often causes a feeling of uncertainty and fear, blocking all other chakras, which prevents the energy flow from free circulation through the body.

Poorly opened Sahasrara leads to the fact that a person can’t find his/her true life purpose. He/she has a lot of questions, the answers to which he/she can’t find.

Other signs of Crown chakra blockage are:

  • the inability to think clearly in a stressful situation;
  • seeking to “taste” all the “fruits” of spiritual achievements without learning to “plant”, “water” and “cultivate” them;
  • dissatisfaction with life;
  • depression;
  • loneliness;
  • unwillingness to communicate with other people;
  • loss of zest for life;
  • fear of death.

Crown Chakra Balancing

There is a number of ways you can use for your Crown Chakra opening and healing. In this article, I’ll share with you some of them.

1. The Sun And The Moon Exercise

  1. Sit in the Lotus position. Your face should be turned to the North. Put your fingers together and close your eyes.
  2. Visualize the Moon to your left side and imagine that it is cold.
  3. Visualize the Sun to your right and imagine that it’s warming you up.
  4. Now visualize the world as continuous energy of the Universe.
  5. Inhale cold energy with your left nostril, and raise the Moon energy up. After that, mentally, the energy should be lowered down to the coccyx.
  6. Inhale hot energy of the Sun with your right nostril and pass it from top to bottom.
  7. Thus, at the coccyx, there are two energy flows meet. They should mentally envelop your spine.
  8. After that, the energy flows should be raised up and held at a point located at the level of the nape.
  9. Now switch the energy flows. Let the cold flow of energy pass into the right hemisphere, and the warm – to the left. Connect these flows at the level of the seventh chakra.

This exercise should be repeated at least twenty times. The energy should rise on the inhale and fall down on the exhale. If all your lower chakras are opened and balanced then you will see the results already in the 2-3 months since the beginning of this practice.

2. Mantra Therapy

At the very beginning, you need to calm down internally, establish control over your own consciousness and relax your body as much as possible.

You should start with the mantra OM. It is necessary to relax the entire body and evenly distribute vibrations throughout the body – from head to toe.

Then you can start chanting bija mantra for Sahasrara chakra.

Bija mantra for Sahasrara is “AH”.

When chanting this mantra your concentration should be on the top of your head.

3. Affirmations

It’s also good to use special affirmations for activating and balancing your Crown chakra. Here are some effective Sahasrara chakra affirmations that you can use.

  • I’m free from depression and fatigue.
  • I trust the Universe and boldly go forward.
  • I’m free from fear.
  • There is the presence of God everywhere.
  • I feel unity with other people and the world.
  • I realize my own uniqueness and recognize my own Divinity.

4. Ritual Baths

Ritual baths are not only very effective but probably one of the most pleasant ways to heal your Crown chakra. All the details of this magical procedure and all the instructions you can find in my article “Ritual Baths For Chakra Balancing”.

5. Clothing

Sometimes it’s good to wear purple clothes, and the one with the print of Crown chakra. It helps to balance your energy field and activate your Sahasrara.

6. Interior Design

The interior can be replenished with items that harmonize the energy of the house and your own energy. When you look at the paintings of Sahasrara chakra or mandalas your energy potential is greatly enhanced.

7. Crystals

Some of the most powerful Crown chakra crystals are:

  • Ametrine;
  • Amethyst;
  • Quartz Crystal;
  • Moonstone;
  • Selenite.

8. Food

Sahasrara corresponds to the food of purple color. For your Crown chakra activation and healing, you can use any purple fruits and vegetables such as eggplant, plum, etc.

Fasting and detoxifying are beneficial for the development of Crown chakra as it awakens to the highest form of spiritual communication.

9. Aromatherapy

This procedure creates a pleasant atmosphere and improves the functioning of your Crown chakra. Lotus and Lavander are the best essential oils for Crown chakra healing.

10. Yoga For Crown Chakra

Conclusion

If you are ready to accept the will of God, ready to merge with the energies of the Universe your Crown chakra will start opening. Crown chakra is the gate behind which a completely different world begins. This is an entrance to the infinity of consciousness, the unification with the entire Universe.

Our goal on Earth is to build up our energy so that we would be able to break through these gates and free ourselves from the invisible shackles that restrain us from our freedom to live our full potential.

Palo Santo: 7 Amazing Benefits And Powerful Ways To Use It

Published

on

Palo Santo Image

Palo Santo has been used for centuries in various spiritual, religious and medicinal ways. In this article, I will share with you some amazing benefits and different ways to use it for healing and spiritual purposes.

What Is Palo Santo?

Palo Santo is mystical tree that grows mainly in South America (Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, etc.). In Ecuador, for several months from January to June, the air is filled with a sweet and mysterious note of Palo Santo mixed with the sea breeze. For many generations, its wood was used by Indian peoples for the preparation of medicinal decoctions, tinctures and, of course, for purification by smoke.

Palo Santo literally means “Holy Wood”. A distinctive feature of this tree is the ability to accumulate in its wood aromatic resins and essential oils, and accordingly, to allocate them during processing.

The Mystery Of Palo Santo

The quality and quantity of oil that is extracted from Palo Santo wood varies according to the lunar cycle. In particular, the new moon gives less oil and a lighter flavor. The full moon is more oil and a deeper flavor. The special Moon power at the equator affects the gravitational fields that affect distillation. Thus, we can say that the Moon itself supports the extraction of the oil from wood.

Shamanic Wisdom

Shamanic ritual image

For centuries, before Palo Santo was introduced to North America, it was used by shamans to cleanse themselves from negative energy, attract positive energy, restore peace and balance, improve concentration and meditation, and heal people on the physical and spiritual levels.

The ancient practice of shamanism believes that Palo Santo contains a Spirit. This Spirit is the manifestation of Palo Santo’s healing power. The shaman turns to the Spirit of this Holy Wood and allows the spirit to heal. The spirit of the tree carries wisdom that allows the smoke of the Palo Santo stick to heal people physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Shamans warn that the spirit of Palo Santo must be treated with respect and to never abuse it. By the way, this is one of the reasons why it is forbidden to cut down Palo Santo trees. It has to fall itself in order for us to be allowed to enjoy its gifts.

Male and Female Trees

Interestingly there are male and female Palo Santo trees that grow in groups of one male tree and eight female trees. At the same time, the life expectancy of male trees is 200 years, while female trees tend to live about 40-50 years.

Their wood also has distinctive characteristics. The wood of the female trees is yellow, hard and heavy, while the wood of the male is white, hollow, fragile, and light. Shamans teach that these trees have a special Spirit that lives in the forest long after the tree’s life is over. It is not surprising that shamans believe these trees are living beings!

Palo Santo Benefits

1. Cleansing of negative energy

One of the most amazing qualities of the Palo Santo tree is its ability to cleanse everything it comes into contact with. The smoke coming from the stick produces a deep cleansing effect on the energy.

Shamans say that the attraction to Palo Santo fragrance is a sign of emotional and spiritual purity. However, there are people who feel discomfort from inhaling the aroma of Palo Santo. This phenomenon is part of the cleansing effect. Constant use of Palo Santo helps a person to be cleansed of negative energies.

2. Maintaining an atmosphere of peace and harmony

Different Ways to Use Palo Santo

1.The use of Palo Santo Wood without burning it

One of the most popular uses of this Holy Wood is as a talisman or amulet.

You can also place small pieces of the wood to aromatize the space – cabinets, car, rooms. However, make sure you treat Palo Santo with respect! For example, do not place it in the toilet or next to the trash can! Remember that the Spirit lives in these pieces of wood. Therefore, you need to treat them appropriately!

You can place sticks on your altar. Thus, you will bless the altar itself and increase the magnetism of all the power objects that are on it.

Another way to use it is to place a piece of the wood in the car. First of all, it will be a great alternative to using air fresheners. And secondly, it will protect you while driving and the car itself.

2. Burning Palo Santo Sticks

You can burn the sticks to purify your aura and to cleanse the energy of your house.

When you burn the sticks, you not only purify the energy from the negativity but also attract positive energy into your space.

How to Burn Palo Santo Sticks?

Holding the stick by one edge, you set fire to its tip on the other side. Wait until a small part of it evenly lights up. Then carefully put it out, blowing or waving it in the air. Let the smoke rise freely in the air.

If you want to cleanse the energy of any objects – bring the stick close enough to them and make a few circular movements around to make smoke gently envelop them. Or just put the smoldering Palo Santo next to you for a few minutes.

The same can be done for cleansing the space. Just walk around the room, bringing a smoking stick to each corner. If the smoke begins to fade gently blow on the stick.

To conduct self-cleansing, move a burning stick in a circular motion from head to toe.

When you have done all the necessary actions, you can put a burning stick on a ceramic saucer, shell or any other refractory stand. The stick will extinguish itself after some time.

3. Essential Oil

Palo Santo is a natural cleanser. Use it in a diffuser to stay healthy. This healing oil has antitumor, anti-infective, antiviral, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, immune-stimulating, and sciatic effects on the body.

In addition, this oil is an ideal additive to massage oils.

This essential oil will help you ground and release emotions such as anger and fear. Use the oil during your meditation to stay concentrated and connected with the spirit. It calms, relaxes, grounds, gives emotional balance, helps spiritual development, activates inspiration, and helps your concentration.

Conclusion

Do you want to take your spiritual practice to the next level? Then Palo Santo is the tool to use! You can use it in any form you like and see its amazing benefits. Cleansing, protection, healing and so many more positive properties you can get just out of one stick! If you’ve never tried using it, you don’t know what you’ve been missing!
