The Power Of Your Presence
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
As a Spiritual Practitioner in the Center For Spiritual Living, I used to periodically be assigned to hold High Watch for a service. I was simply mindfully present while holding a high vibration for the whole congregation.
Do not underestimate the power of your presence.
You can be in a big room full of people and energetically change and raise the vibration. You can be in a conversation and expand your energy to soften and refocus the emotions that are arising.
You can elevate and redirect your own thoughts to create a different experience for everyone.
Do not underestimate the power of your presence.

Deepen Your Inner Awareness
Step Into The Stillness
In stillness there is clarity.
In stillness there is inner peace.
In stillness there is compassion and love.
When we move into the stillness within, we see the path more clearly, we hear the answers we seek, and we know the steps to take. The way is made clear for us.
Everything is made up of source energy. When we drop our own agenda, our own needs, our own perceptions, we move into a space of non-attachment and deepening inner peace.
When do you take time to do that? When do you take time to step into the stillness?
I have a meditative practice that includes drumming and singing and talking to my crystals but that is not stepping into the stillness. When I simply turn and look out my window at the clouds and trees and nature, I gradually begin to immerse myself in stillness. After a while I can lose myself and merge into the Great Oneness.
We are part of an infinite web and each of us is an important strand in that web, unique and invaluable.
How do you step into the stillness?
Take Responsibility for Healing Yourself
I Am Not A Fan Of Meds
I am taking a lot of medications and do not like how they make me feel. But I have no access to alternate medicine other than what I figure out for myself, which I am working on – reiki, shamanic journeying and affirmations and sound healing. But the side effects of these drugs are hard to overcome. I get to keep working with my holistic intentions. How do you keep your health care aligned with your beliefs?
Explore New Potential and Possibilities
How Do You Regain Your Balance?
Free time is a valuable resource. Assuming you do not need to sleep to re-balance, how do you structure your free time?
Do you really have a time in your day in which you are free to choose what you want to do next? It may range from a long walk in nature to a focused meditation. It could be about organizing some aspect of your life so your choices become clearer, or it may be about exploring something new.
Look closely to determine where you are off kilter and what is pulling you there and make some new choices that help regain your balance.
Make Sure Your Message Is Clear
I was semi-interested in an on-line sound healing event but the messaging and instructions were not as clear as I needed. I took action but it was a bit challenging. The Shift Network does their summits extremely well.
How clearly do you express yourself? Your intentions, your ideas, your beliefs?
Sometimes we are so far into a topic that our vocabulary is too advanced for the people we are talking to and we do not realize it. Sometimes a single well-constructed sentence to orient people is enough.
Know your listeners, develop a few sentences of orientation and make sure your message is clear.

The Power Of Chanting
I have not done a lot of chanting in my spiritual practice but now that I am diving into sound healing, I will begin to work with it more. Chanting lets you raise the level of your own vibration to a higher spiritual state. It is a form of vocal meditation that unites the mind, body, emotions, and breath through vocal sounding.
What you chant is less important than your willingness to focus fully on the act of chanting itself. Chanting lets you raise the level of your own vibration to a higher spiritual state.
To begin, sit comfortably with a straight back and take a series of long, deep breaths to open and flex your lungs. Then, take another breath, and with resonant tones, direct your breath outward in the form of sound. Simple syllables like ‘oh,’ ‘ee,’ or ‘mm’ are easy to remember. Experiment to find which sounds resonate with you the most. Experiment with both pitch and vowel sounds. It may vary depending on the focus of your chanting/meditation.
Chanting can liberate and ground you simultaneously because it allows your soul to soar freely while compelling you to focus on the here and now.
The chanting that will resonate most deeply and beneficially for you is the chanting you do for yourself. As you begin to explore chanting, see how you want to use it in your spiritual practice. You can chant as an invocation or to set intention. You can chant in gratitude. By using your breath and your voice with chanting, you raise the level of your own vibration to a higher spiritual state.
There are many different chants. They can be composed of names, words, sounds, syllables, or even sections of text. What you chant is less important than your willingness to focus fully on the act of chanting itself.
You can chant as an invocation or to set intention. Chanting lets you raise the level of your own vibration to a higher spiritual state. How and will you add chanting to your life?
===HOW TO BE A STRONG CONTRIBUTING MEMBER OF THE CIRCLE OF LIGHT BEARERS===
Expand Your Role in the Rapidly Evolving Universe
Are You Living An Inspiring Life?
How do other people see you? Ae you filled with enthusiasm and joy? Do people find being in your presence uplifting? Or do they come away pulled down by your expression of life?
Think about the people you love to be around and figure out why they are so uplifting by their mere presence.
Qualities like enthusiasm and caring come to mind. I like being around people with sharp minds and a lot of curiosity. They challenge me and open new doors for me to explore.
Give some thought to how your presence affects others and see if or how you want to change your participation with others and how you show up in the world.
Are You Called To A Cause?
When I first thought about this, I was thinking of being called to activism – like save the planet or save the animals – a cause that is so meaningful to you that you are called to take action.
I have come across a new role for me that may be the most important of my entire life. I am to serve as a bridge between my holistic knowledge and the western medicine presence of the staff here in long term care. I have never been this impactful before and I am reaching through several generations.
What new cause is calling you?

The Impact You Have
Chris Brogan, in a recent newsletter, asked what final words we wanted to hear when we prepare to die and for me it is “You have made a difference.”
I know I have. I know I am a dispenser of knowledge about alternate healing in this western medicine long term care facility. They are asking about it and I am sharing. It is as if I am a bridge.
I was asked to give a talk to residents and I taught them a bit about sound healing. I have been asked to speak to the staff leadership team and will teach them how to change the energy in a room or in a conversation.
Recently I told the head of nursing here about my work with sound heading and that it was in hospitals and it turns out he teaches nursing!
I am currently talking about sound healing to everyone who crosses my path. Who knows how far-reaching and impactful those interchanges will be. What is the impact you have? Use it wisely.
===SING A DEEPER SONG ===
I Am A Bridge
I am a bridge – a bridge to new insights, deeper explorations and expanded understanding.
I am a bridge – a bridge to new insights, deeper explorations and expanded understanding. I go where my curiosity takes me, always exploring and questioning and learning.
I am a bridge – a bridge to new insights, deeper explorations and expanded understanding. I go where my curiosity takes me, always exploring and questioning and learning. Then I turn and show others the way.
