New Book! Awakening by Heather Burket

I’m excited to share that I’ve written a book that is now available on Amazon! One of the most challenging things that I found during the Spiritual Awakening process was that I just needed some basic information. I just felt really frustrated at having to hunt down and try to piece everything together. So, I wrote this book with that in mind – to try and help people going through this process have a basic understanding.

Everyone’s spiritual journey is a little different. For me, mine was triggered largely by Kundalini activation by meeting a Twin Flame. I share my experience and how my journey unfolded after that.

Spiritual Awakening is all about remembering who you are. That process involves a lot of inner work. In my book, I share the various healing modalities that I’ve tried.

I hope that this book provides a source of comfort, understanding and hope for anyone undergoing through this process. I know it can be overwhelming – I’ve definitely been there!

So please feel free to check out my book on Amazon and share with anyone that is going through the spiritual awakening process.

Healing Modalities Part 3 – Crystals

I wanted to dedicate a whole blog post to crystals because of their amazing healing abilities. After I was first introduced to crystals, I, like many of you probably reading this post became hooked! I became so enthralled and enchanted by these stunning beauties that I actually began selling them online. They are absolutely amazing and wonderful tools to assist us on this journey. Before we dive into it, it’s a good idea to learn more about energy and our emotions in order to understand how crystals assist with healing.

Emotions and Energy

First, you must think of it in terms of energy. We are energetic beings, and our energy varies from day to day. Our energy is impacted by a variety of factors, but a large majority of our energy is derived from our emotions. So, before we delve into crystals and how they work, we need to first understand our own energy.

Here is a list of some of the factors that affect our energy.

  1. Our own emotions

Once you reach a certain level of emotional understanding you realize that you and you alone are responsible for your own emotions and your own emotional well-being. These emotions are energy that impact our overall energy that we maintain and emit into the environment around us.

So, let’s look at a couple of examples. 1) You wake up and have a full week of meetings, deadlines, and presentations. You may be feeling stressed out, anxious, edgy, or irritated. 2) Day 1 of a two-week vacation – just you and an open expanse of beachfront property. You are probably feeling excited, relaxed, calm, and joyful. So, you can see how our emotional response to situations affect our emotional state and therefore our energy.

  • Home environment

So now let’s talk a little about our home environment. Can you tell a difference in your own emotional state if there’s a lot of clutter versus everything organized and clean?

I know that doesn’t necessarily apply to all people as clutter doesn’t impact some personality types, but there may be other examples for them – such as loud noise – such as television, traffic, etc.

How many of us have walked into a hotel room and just sighed and jumped on the bed to relax? Part of that is because there isn’t a lot of doodads, knick knacks, etc. everywhere impacting the flow of energy.

  • Diet/exercise

This is pretty much a no-brainer. Most of us are aware, at some level, of how we feel after we eat. As you become more self-aware, you may realize that you feel really lethargic and spaced out after eating a heavy meal at lunch (I’m looking at myself here). On the other end of the spectrum – you may go to a healthy retreat where the focus is on fresh, local, non-GMO, organic fruits and vegetables and realize just how amazing the food tastes and how your body feels invigorated after eating. And we all know just how great we feel after exercising.

  • Our focus

Social media, television shows, magazines, books – all these things that we give our attention to have an impact on us. Do you find yourself depressed after seeing the latest post from your friend on yet another vacation? Observe that seemingly flawless model on the front cover of that magazine and begin to feel deflated? Get anxious after reading that latest murder novel and run and double-check your lock on your door before going to bed?

  • Stars/cosmos

And then there are other things that we are impacted by for which we have no control and probably lack awareness of its existence. The planetary alignments, moon phases and incoming energies from the universe all impact us in various ways from being anxious, lethargic, to energetic and unable to sleep as I mentioned in my chapter on Being an Empath.

So, what does all of this have to do with crystals? These are all examples of how we, in our daily lives, are energetically challenged day-in and day-out through a variety of causes.

Crystals are one tool that we have available to us to assist us to become more in alignment with our true selves.

So How do Crystals Work?

As we saw above, we are highly variable in our emotions due to a variety of causes. Crystals, on the other hand, emit energy in a steady state. Their energy is constant, so when we are near these crystals, we start to resonate with their energy. Depending on the sensitivity of the individual – this can vary, but in general, within 3 feet is when we will be in their energetic field and begin to resonate with their energy.

So, by being in their energetic field, we are impacted. There are some things that I believe that can impact this as well – which is belief. Belief systems are a whole topic by themselves, but the power of the mind, the law of attraction – those all come into play here. If you strongly believe that crystals don’t do anything – then as you are a creator being – then that will be true for you. We create our own reality with our thoughts and beliefs. I’m reminded of people that have healed themselves through the powerful belief that they can.

And as you would suspect, different crystals emit a different vibration which is why different crystals are chosen to heal different issues. Some crystals are very high vibration – so you would not choose one of those for anxiety – as one example.

And just like the crystals are different, people are also different in their sensitivity to crystal energies. Some people can feel energy easier than others. And as you raise your own vibration, you will most likely will become more sensitive to energy and therefore to crystals and their energy.

In addition to affecting our energy through their resonance, just having a piece in our environment can instill a sense of happiness and wonder as we appreciate their beauty.

When it comes to working with crystals, it is always recommended to work with one at a time. One great idea is to buy a journal and start to document your experiences with each individual crystal.

Just as we noted above, there are many causes to our emotions and to our energetic state. It is a good idea to be more mindful of how your emotions shift and to be able to identify the cause. This will help you to better understand yourself and to help determine the impacts of the crystals versus the causes listed above.

I thought I would share a few examples of experiences that I’ve had with crystals.

Crystal Experience No. 1 – Azeztulite

My first story is about Azeztulite. Now I had not heard about this crystal before I experienced its energy. I was at the Tucson Gem Show walking around one of the show locations and as I walked by one stand with these white Azeztulite crystals – all my arm hairs stood up on my arm as I walked by. I thought that was strange, and I continued walking. As I walked by a second time, the same thing happened, so I decided that was a sign that I needed to take note, so I stopped to look at these crystals. These were white Azeztulite crystals. So, I decided to take some back to sell. When I got home, I took one and held it in my hand. I could feel the energy pulsating through my hand! It was powerful! If you haven’t heard about this crystal – I encourage you to research them and learn more about them. I believe that these crystals are very powerful and very important to use at this time to help us evolve spiritually.

Crystal Experience No. 2 – Large Quartz Crystal Cluster

For this experience, I was at the Denver Gem Show. There was a very large approximately 6-7-foot-tall clear quartz crystal cluster on display. I had seen this particular specimen before, and I decided to go in front of it and take a closer look. As I stood in front of it, I immediately started to cry! The emotion happened immediately – so I know that it was specifically due to standing in front of the crystal. So, to me, again, this goes to show you just how powerful these crystals can be. I believe that they work on our energy bodies, helping us to release stored up emotions. That was what I believe was happening here. I don’t think we realize just how much we have emotions bottled up inside of us that need to be released. If you ever get a chance, stand in front of a huge quartz cluster, and let it all out!!

Crystal Experience No. 3 – Sentient Plasma Crystal™

So now we are coming to my most recent absolutely exciting story! This is one of my favorite newly discovered crystals! I was at the Denver Gem Show, and I had been looking for some personal pieces for myself. I stopped at one booth and began talking to the salesperson. He ended up showing me some of these extremely clear quartz pieces. If you find very clear quartz, most likely it is from Colombia, and that was the case for this particular piece that I was looking at. This particular type of clear quartz is 93% pure quartz! There were several pieces there, but I picked up one that I was drawn to. I placed it in my left hand, and after a few minutes, I could feel the energy pulsating through my hand. It was incredible!

Later after I got home, I decided to meditate with this crystal. As I held it in my hand, I had a few different experiences. One was that I could feel energy moving in my face – it was a very odd sensation – around my cheeks. Then, I felt as if I could feel various beings around me in my room. In fact, I kept on opening my eyes, because I could feel their presence so strongly. Next, I had this very unusual vision of a crystal cluster – that was actually glowing blue from the inside. Now, I thought to myself that is very odd. And I remember telling a friend about that vision I had with this crystal. A few days I found some information indicating that apparently these crystals are not from Earth but are seeded from an ice planet and formed from water as opposed to heat and pressure. They were described as having a blue glow from the ice when they observed them at the source. How bizarre is that? Below is the article:

Sentient Plasma Quartz Crystal – Nick Newmont

So, this crystal was telling me about itself – which I found pretty cool! I have had a few more amazing experiences with this crystal. I believe it is very powerful and am excited to see what all it can do!

Those are just a few personal stories that I thought I’d share to give you some insight as to what you might expect working with crystals. It does take a while and a lot of self-awareness to be able to discern how the crystals are working with you – but you will get there!

How Do Crystals Fit into Overall Healing?

There are many different healing modalities that I’ve discussed in previous blog posts. Crystals have their place as strong healing tools. But it is also important to understand that there are many healing modalities and having a strong understanding of your inner world should serve as the base. I use crystals every day. But I also use other healing modalities as well. I think crystals have become so popular over the past few years because they are serving to heal us, to connect us with nature, to others, and to elevate our consciousness so that we can evolve and grow spiritually. If you haven’t yet explored the world of crystals, I encourage you to journey into this incredible world of wonder, intrigue, and magic!

Healing Modalities – Part 2

In this post, I’ll discuss what I consider to be deeper healing modalities. I’ve included ones that I have personally tried and my experiences with them.

Acupuncture

I have been going to acupuncture off and on for a few years. It was interesting because one day someone asked me what was wrong with me that I needed acupuncture. And while it is true, acupuncturists will ask you want you want to work on, what issues that you are experiencing, to me, it’s more about getting your energy flowing to PREVENT any long-term illness. It’s a completely different mindset than traditional western medicine, where the focus is less on preventing and more on fixing what is broken. I have actually been amazed at how good I feel after acupuncture. What surprised me was how much emotionally healing I gained as well. The last two times I started back doing acupuncture, after not having gone in a while, I had a significant emotional response. It’s my understanding that we do hold emotions in our body, certain organs – like the liver, and acupuncture has the effect of getting that energy moving again – and helping us release what has been stored up inside. I am no expert by any means, I am just sharing my own personal experience and perception of my acupuncture treatments. I have completed acupuncture sessions and felt so calm and relaxed afterwards, that I had to just sit in the entry area for a while until I felt comfortable enough to drive. It has been the most relaxing I have ever felt in my life. Not all sessions had that affect, but I can attest to the treatments doing something positive. I consider this a deep healing, but by no means something that can’t be done with some frequency. I think that it is profound in its healing ability is why I consider it to be ‘deep.’ If you have an aversion to needles like I do, you seriously don’t need to worry. The needles are tiny. They also usually put on relaxing music during the sessions.

Reiki

I have only done reiki a couple of times, but I did really enjoy it and had some profound experiences during and after the sessions.  Since I have only gone to one person a couple of times, I don’t have too much to compare to on this one on how things might normally go. But some people have more ‘skills’ than others, and the practitioner that I went to had more psychic abilities than most people. So, after the session, she gently told me that I had two negative entities attached to me that she sent ‘to the light.’ She said that she doesn’t tell everyone when she sees them, but that she knew that I could handle that information. This session was not too long after my Kundalini had activated, and so my ‘light’ was brighter and negative entities can see your light – is how she explained it to me. What was funny about it – is that I saw these little mischievous things prior to this session – but didn’t know what they were, or that they were attached to me. I talk about this in my blog post on “Negative Entities.”

Negative Entities – Heather Burket

I could feel her increasing the energy on my chakras (energy centers) and feel the energy swirling. It was a crazy experience. I also would see, in my mind’s eye, various colors when she went over the different chakras. She made a point to focus on my third eye on one session, and later that evening, I had this weird experience where the whole room flashed up white with light. I know that means that the third eye is opening. I had had this same experience previously once my Kundalini activated, but it is still startling to experience.

I think Reiki is a great practice to get the energy centers going. I have felt absolutely amazing afterwards, but you do need to take some down time after sessions. It’s important to take it easy physically for a couple of days. So, I normally don’t do it too often, because I don’t really want to take the down time. I do feel it is a great way to get your energy moving and it is definitely a deeper healing.

Plant Medicines

From my perspective, plant medicines are great tools for people wanting to heal deeper traumas. I would highly recommend this to people who are willing to face their inner demons. Of course, this is a topic that has become more mainstream lately and I’m glad for that. This type of practice has been going on for a long time by many cultures all over the world.

If you choose to participate in this type of healing, I’d recommend that you find what resonates with you. Always follow your intuition.

I have listened to various people share their experiences, and I think people’s experience will vary depending on a few factors. 1) How much trauma that they have 2) How open they are to letting go 3) The particular type of plant medicine and how it is prepared.

I have tried a few different plant medicines – one I felt happy and at peace, the other made me so sick I threw up. The latter one is not that common, in fact, I had never head of this one before. But the experience was actually quite horrible, and I will never do that again. I did not do too much research, as it lasted for the entire day – it was miserable. At one point, I did feel the amazing experience of love, but it was short-lived, followed by misery for the rest of the time. It was like I was constantly trying to stay in control and stay in my body. I did not know what would happen if I let go. Others in the group had similar experiences as I did – we were all miserable. As far as healing goes on the latter one, I am sure that I released some things, but I can’t consciously say what I did release.

I still believe in the power of plant medicines, but I think that it depends on the type and how it is made. I have heard amazing stories from others about how they released a lot during these sessions, so I do believe in their abilities. There are other plant medicines that I am interested in trying at some point.

Implant Removal

When we first start to wake up spiritually, I think we all get a bit freaked out. We start going down different rabbit holes and basically just get a bit terrified. Part of my experience was freaking out thinking I had implants. In case you are not familiar with implants – implants are thought to be either energetic or physical apparatus that are put into us preventing us from fully expressing ourselves in some way. They can also be tracking devices. I’ve heard various things over the years, so I will just share what I’ve heard and experienced. I believe that if our energy gets lowered, then we might allow these implants to be placed in our etheric fields. I am not exactly sure how, but these could be from extraterrestrial beings. I believe that they can also be physical – but I don’t personally have any experience with that.

So, for some reason, I decided to do a long-distance implant removal session. The person scheduled it for be completed at a certain time. They stated that I should be at home, relaxed, but I had to go to work during that time. Later that day I had to take one of my animals to the vet’s office. It was going to be a while, so I decided to just sit in my car. I literally fell asleep in my car – I could not stay awake. I NEVER fall asleep while traveling, not in a car, not in an airplane, so I knew that this sleeping bout was most likely due to the energetic healing session.

Later that evening, I was lying in bed, and I felt like Frankenstein on the table feeling this surge of electricity going through my body where I couldn’t move, and it freaked me out. It seemed like it lasted a few minutes, but I’m sure it was just a few seconds that seemed like forever. It really freaked me out.

After I went to sleep, that night, I had this kind of weird out of body experience or lucid dream? It was kind of both. I remember lying on this table and I saw this man with a white beard. I saw these glass tablets hanging in mid-air that were turned backwards, so that I couldn’t see what was playing, even though it was see through. Then, I came back into my body, and I remember as soon as I did, I felt this pressure in between my eyes – kind of in the middle of my forehead. When I woke up – I had a headache.

When I received the report from the long-distance healer, they had said that they removed something in my 3rd eye and put some sort of rainbow device there or something. I was confused thinking I don’t remember this being part of the package. They also removed various other etheric implants located in different areas.

I brought this up to a psychic once and they said that some implants are meant to be there. I believe that they are from our spirit team. Maybe they’ve been placed there for a reason. So, I am not sure if my spirit guides removed something that should have been there, or if they removed what they put in me, but either way, I think that whatever the healer did, was not right and my spirit team fixed it.

I know this sounds out there, and I feel like I’m telling half a story, because I really do not know the full truth, but I wanted to share this with you in case you think decide to get an implant removal session. I would not recommend it unless you are pretty far down the spiritual path and know what you are doing.

Sacred Sites

I am listing sacred sites here in healing modalities because I believe that when we visit sacred sites that we activate our DNA. This propels us forward on our spiritual journey in a significant way. What I have found interesting over the years, is that I think that these trips are ‘planned’ without us even knowing the reason why or connecting the dots as to how it is important. A few times I have ended up at locations during spring or summer solstices – and I don’t think those are coincidences. I share more about my personal experiences in my video on Atlantis/Bimini. (just google Tropica Exotica on You Tube)

I think that we each have our own path and will be drawn to certain places. I have traveled to the following places: Sedona, Bimini (Atlantis), Hot Springs Arkansas, Lake Louise, Macchu Pichu, Lake Titicaca (and several other sites in Peru), Puma Punka (Bolivia).

Tachyon Chamber

This type of healing modality is not very common. But I would recommend if you feel called to it. I would make sure that it is actually a real tachyon chamber. I discuss this in more detail in this post.

Tachyon Chamber – Heather Burket

Breathwork

This is an area that I think is extremely beneficial and kind have profound effects. I think that this really should probably be done with regularity, but I am including on the ‘deep’ section because I do believe it is very powerful. Even though I believe it is very powerful, I have not dedicated that much time to it, however when I have practiced it, it has helped release a lot of stored up emotional pain.

Others that practice it report higher energy, increased clarity, and better connection their higher selves. I think it probably opens the 3rd eye in a big way.

Try guided breathwork DVDs, shows, YouTube or try Insight Timer or find a teacher that can help you with your practice. I think that there is a lot to learn with this practice, just like yoga. We can all probably benefit from having someone guide us through this practice.

Crystal Beds

I have experienced a crystal bed once. Crystal beds are where you lie down on a bed, similar to a massage table. They have these lights with crystals that are directed over each chakra – so each crystal matches each chakra. I’ll be completely honest here, my experience with this was not great, not because of the crystal bed, but because of the practitioner. I honestly did not resonate with this individual but had gone there with a friend.

So, I’ll just say – I think that there is benefit to these and I would recommend them. However, my experience was clouded with being in a situation where I felt uncomfortable and so was not able to fully experience this type of healing.

Tesla Coils

Again, sometimes I just find myself in these situations where these healing modalities appear and I just say, ‘why not.’ I had never heard of this type of healing modality, so didn’t know what it did or had any clue about what I was doing.

Anyway, the theory is that you lay on a bed in between two coils – some near the top of your head and the others close to your feet. You lie on the bed and they place various crystals on your body. The energy is supposed to cycle through you I believe, and then cut off when it has completed ‘charging’ you I guess for lack of better word.

To be honest, I was kind of nervous because I didn’t know what this thing was doing to me, but I tried it anyway. Supposedly, the system was supposed to cut off after about 20 minutes. It must have been 45 minutes when the practitioner came back and was surprised to see that the coils were still ‘on’.  I felt very light-headed and probably very ungrounded. I probably should not have driven home until I had time to get grounded. I do remember missing an exit and getting turned around at one point.

I believe that the purpose overall, is to increase and recharge your energy and it definitely did do that. What was funny about it was later, I was sitting at my kitchen table and I was making the lights flicker. I brought in a black tourmaline and a hematite to the table and then the light stopped flickering. Interesting stuff for sure.

Sound Healing

I think healing through sound is also a very deep healing practice. I have less experience in this arena, but I have experienced someone drumming over my body and it felt amazing. One of my current practices is to listen to 528 Hz – almost daily. I think it helps me get centered internally.

Sound healing is one area that I plan to explore more in the future, as I think there is so much to it.

After reading this blog post, it will be become pretty obvious that I am open to most forms of healing. I think it’s a combination of personality type, and the desire to be the best that I can be. But I’d advise you to follow your own internal guidance system on what healing modality you are called to try.

Healing Modalities – Part 1

I have so much to say on this topic that I will have to break this into several posts. If there is one message that I want everyone to come away from after reading this, is that anyone choosing to look at themselves and do inner work should be applauded, because it is definitely not an easy process. It takes a lot of courage to face our inner demons and look at unhealed parts of ourselves and be willing to accept that we can use some improvement.

I plan to talk about some what I consider to be “Core” healing modalities. These are foundational practices that I believe are beneficial and serve as a starting point for personal growth and development.

Traditional Therapy

By Traditional therapy – I am referring to seeing a counselor – either a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, or a Clinical Psychologist. I am sure they are called by different classifications in other countries outside of the US, but basically a practice where someone has trained in school. Traditional therapy is important because it serves as a way for an outside person to be able to look at us objectively and help us to understand our family dynamics and the filters on how we perceive things. Therapy helps us to break these decades long family patterns in our family lines. And the additional benefit, is that once we start to react differently, then others around us learn as well. Not only are we helping ourselves, but we are also helping those around us.

Most of us are not taught basic emotional awareness, so we just follow along with whatever happens in our families. Going to a therapist will help us better understand how and why we are reacting. One common thing that you might hear about is being ‘triggered.’ This is when someone says or does something to you that makes you upset. I used to suffer from this quite a bit. Now I know enough about myself to where I really don’t give a crap. LOL! But it is very freeing. When you realize that you and only you are the one that controls your emotional reaction to someone, why would you let that other person let you get upset? However, most of us have not spent the time and done the work to understand WHY we are getting upset. We just know that we are mad. Once you start to understand the WHY, then you can react differently and those WHYs can be any of 100’s of reasons.

When it comes to healing, traditional therapy is hands down the most profound healing treatment that you can do for yourself. It is not easy, but once you start to go and are able to express how you feel and have someone help you feel better – why wouldn’t you? At the end of the day, we all just want to be happy and be at peace internally. Going to therapy should be the first step on the spiritual path of self-awareness.

Exercise

Exercise is another practice that has so many overall benefits. I remember running and getting a ‘high’ from it and thinking, “oh my gosh, no one really talks about the emotional bliss.” Of course, everyone has heard of the ‘runners high’. But I don’t think most people truly appreciate the actual emotional benefits to exercise. I almost felt like it was this secret that no one really talked about. I think the hard thing about exercise is overcoming the inertia to start. In this sedentary lifestyle where many of us are at computers all day, I think a lot of us have become really lazy about actually getting up to do things. And yes, I am referring to myself here as well. The more we sit, the harder it is to actually get up and take action. At the very least, I really recommend walking to start. I walk my dog several times a week about 1 ½ miles. I walk very early in the morning – at 4:00 AM. To me, it is so emotionally balancing. My mind is free, I am just putting one foot in front of the other. I can see the stars which helps me put anything going on in my life into perspective. Then, once I get home, I already have a sense of accomplishment. Now I know a lot of people are not early risers and might be more physically impaired to walk and/or walk that far. But pick something that you can do and try to make it more of a habit. The main thing is to get moving. And once you start to gain a positive momentum, you will be even more motivated to continue because you will start to feel better. And don’t beat yourself up if you can’t get into a regular habit. I think a lot of times, we set these high expectations and then when life happens and takes us of course, we start to feel bad and give up.  But just remember, it’s a journey, not a sprint, so just keep on going!

Meditation

This is so hard for a lot of people. We are hard pressed to sit still and quiet our minds. As an action-oriented person, this practice is also difficult for me. So, I try to meditate for even just a few minutes. I think the earlier in the day the better before our monkey minds start taking off. For me, I find myself thinking during meditation and I have to make myself snap out of it. Guided meditations might be better for some people where you are listening to someone to help you focus your mind, rather than on your To Do list for the day. I have read that when you meditate, you actually impact your neighbors! The energy creates a type of coherence that impacts those near you. How awesome is that! Just think if we all meditated how calm we would all be!

Meditation helps us to calm our minds creating an inner balance. I think the more effort that we put forth in taking care of our mental and emotional states, the easier it is for us to go through our day and react to any situation that we might encounter in a better state of mind.

One App that I recommend is “Insight Timer”. There are guided meditations, calming music, music to help you sleep – all sorts of helpful tracks depending on what you are looking for. I listen to one 528Hz in the morning while I journal. My animals also feel the peace and become very relaxed while listening to it.

Visualization

I consider visualization a core practice that I don’t think too many people practice. When we visualize, we get to choose what we want to see. Most of us are going to pick something that we want to experience in our lives. Visualizing that desired image will create a positive feeling. I have heard when we create with our mind through our imagination, that it is created in the 4th dimension – it exists. Then it’s just a matter of time before it is created physically into the 3rd dimension. It is a practice that many professional athletes and sports professionals utilize. It is one of the tenets of Law of Attraction. The body can’t tell the difference if something is from imagination or if it is really happening, so it will also respond accordingly.I feel that visualization is important because when you think about how we go about our day and how we might focus on any number of different things, I think when you specifically make a point to focus on something that you desire, that puts your frame of mind in a positive state of expectation.

Journaling

When it comes to healing modalities, journaling is the one where I spend most of my time. It helps me sort out what I am feeling. I think oftentimes we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and we don’t really focus on what is going on with us internally. We might be short-tempered or be angry and not even know why we are acting a certain way. Journaling to me helps me keep track of what is going on inside. It helps me process what I am feeling. Journaling helps me reflect on the day, what experiences I have had, what I was feeling, and how to make sense of everything. Writing helps me to stay centered because I have spent time on where I am emotionally. If I feel I am degrading emotionally, I write down what is going on, I brainstorm on how I can feel better. I reflect on the good, the bad and the ugly. To me, it’s me checking in on myself. It’s an integral part of my own emotional health practice.

Dream interpretation

This goes hand in hand with journaling. While people would most likely not consider this a healing modality, I want to talk about it because during the spiritual awakening process, dreams become a focal point. I will have to write an article on this because there are so much to dreams. In this post, I will just touch on the basics.

If you are not paying attention to your dreams you are missing out on a key tool to better understand yourself. I think it is kind of funny how people don’t realize how much their dreams tell about what is going on inside. And I think it’s funny when people tell me about their dreams. I spend a lot of time on dream analysis. Your dreams give you clues about what is subconscious – and trying to bring the information forth to your conscious level.

Since my spiritual awakening process began, I have become better at understanding my dreams. I believe that dreams can tell us about what is going on internally.

Here’s a summary of what dreams can reveal, from my perspective:

  1. Subconscious fears
  2. Things that you are trying to process emotionally
  3. Past lives
  4. Pre-cognitive visions
  5. Astral experiences

Since I’m talking about healing modalities, I’ll focus on subconscious fears and things that you are trying to process emotionally. The other 3, I’ll save for another blog post. Over the years, I’ve been better at understanding what dreams are trying to help me process things emotionally vs the other types. It takes time, but if you spend enough time on the process, it will become clearer.

Your dreams hold tremendous value in understanding your inner world. The key to dream interpretation is to remember how you FELT. Did you experience fear? Dread? Anxiety? Sadness? By paying attention, dreams will help you understand things that you might not be consciously aware of. To me, it’s an integral, core part of healing. Some dreams may be reinforcing something that you are already aware of, and others might be bringing things to you that you have tried to suppress or ignore.

Once you identify the key emotion, then try to identify if there is anything going on in your life that has that same emotion. Any animal or insect that shows up is your subconscious mind’s way of bringing a symbol to represent your feelings. It is important to focus on how you feel about that particular image, but you can also look up general interpretations There are also some dreams where you may be aware, but not fully aware of just how much emotion that you feel about a certain topic. If you wake up from a horrible dream with an intense emotion – pay attention. These are intense emotions that you are feeling that need to be addressed as they might be causing you a lot of inner turmoil that you may not have acknowledged.

Yoga

I am by no means an expert, but I believe yoga is one of the core healing modalities that helps combine exercise and meditation. During yoga, my mind is quiet. I am focused on my body and how my body is responding to the movements. I feel the tightness, where I am holding onto stress in my body. Yoga helps center us, get us back in touch with our physical bodies and just feels good! Since a lot of us spend a lot of time at the computer, we really need to stretch. Yoga helps us deal with stiffness. Some people may prefer a class, some might prefer watching a yoga class in their own homes. Try whatever works for you. If yoga is too strenuous, just try stretching to start.

When it comes to healing, there are several different types of modalities. These might not all fit into the traditional definition of healing, but things that I think are the core foundation for overall mental, emotional, and physical health.

In the next post, I’ll go a little deeper into some practices that really go to that next level and are more intense healing practices.

Tachyon Chamber

During the spiritual awakening process, a large part of the process is about becoming more self-aware and this desire can lead one to different experiences.

One of the areas that you may be led to – is trying different healing modalities. I’ve tried a lot of different things over the years – traditional therapy, EFT, acupuncture, reiki, crystal bed therapy and even tesla coils – to name just a few. These different modalities are all helpful and serve different purposes in my opinion.

A few months back, I came across some posts by someone that I’d heard of, but really didn’t follow too closely – about this type of healing modality called “Tachyon Chambers.” It sounded interesting to me, so I looked it up online and found the information intriguing, so I found a location that wasn’t too far from me to try and book a session. They told me that they were not accepting appointments at that time, but they would keep me on a mailing list for when it was open.

The explanation of Tachyon energy and the chambers are that tachyons are energy – sub-atomic particles that are the highest frequency that can be combined with matter and that they can’t reach the earth because of the veil. This chamber allows you to receive the energy – which is supposed to increase energy, help start the healing process, assist in emotional, physical and mental well-being and serve as protection from harmful EMF. The effects are supposed to be permanent.

Recently, they emailed me to let me know that they had appointments open and had sessions available the first week of November. So, I signed up. One thing that I’ve learned about through the spiritual awakening process, is that your higher self, guides and your own intuition will help direct you to the experiences and information that are needed for your own growth. So, I go with the flow now if I feel drawn to something. I honestly don’t think too much about it. I invited a friend to see if she wanted to go with me – and she did.

We met a little before the session to catch up, then headed over the location of the chamber, which was in a person’s house. Again, I don’t think too much about these things – I just roll with it, but always be smart and listen to your intuition.

We were to text them once we arrived and then they would come to the side of the house to meet us, so that we wouldn’t disturb those in the chamber before us. So, we brought our stuff with us – blanket, pillow, and some bottles of water. As we made our way around to the back, I was just awestruck at the landscaping in the back yard. I am a plant person, so it was probably more impactful to me than some others, but it was truly a work of art – it was NOT typical landscaping. The entire backyard was taken up by beds that contained dry desert type plants – cacti, etc. I don’t even have the words to describe it, other than magical. There was a path, that wound around the back of the yard, with an elevated flower bed. Once you walked up the steps, you were on a patio that overlooked the garden, and the rolling hills that just happened to be where the sun was currently setting. It was just so peaceful, inspiring, and beautiful. As I looked closer at the details in the flower beds – there were large crystals!! There was one area that had these huge amethyst pieces and then the whole expanse of this same bed had these clear crystals that went across in the middle. Hidden in different places and on the patio were labradorite, kambaba jasper, aquamarine and some quartz pieces. It was just unbelievable. I would have loved to just sit out there and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the garden.

So I’m just trying to set the scene on just how I knew as soon as I walked in the backyard – that this was where I was supposed to be, what I was supposed to experience.

As we walked in the house, they took us over to where the chamber was. It was in a small front room by the front of the house. When they say “chamber” what I believe that they are really referring to, is that it is contained within a room, there isn’t a box or anything else that it sounds like. Instead, there is a mattress on the floor with 4 poles, a crystal at the top, and some other crystals in the corners and sacred geometry was on the floor.

It’s only for one person at a time, and you need to bring your own blanket/towel and pillow. I had to scoot down underneath the poles so that I wouldn’t knock it out of alignment.

Once I laid down, they put this thing called a resonator on me – which looked like a brass dual megaphone with a crystal in the middle. They then put andara crystals on either side and then placed cintamani crystals on my 3rd eye, throat chakra and my heart chakra.

I was a little anxious – not knowing what to expect, but I tried to just relax and let the experience unfold. I have no idea timewise, but after a few minutes it seems, I felt this warm feeling on the underneath of my body, that was touching the mattress. At this point, I was a little frustrated thinking, ‘is this all that I’m going to feel?’

So, again – no idea, timewise, but at some point, where the resonator was located – near the center of my body  – I began to feel this odd sensation, like my body seemed to be expanding where this resonator was – rounded – like it was growing. It was a very curious feeling.

Then, I started to experience this really odd sensation of losing my sense of physical form – and that started to freak me out. I feel like I could tell I was still laying on the mattress, but the rest of my body – just felt like it had dissolved or something. I just was left with my own internal awareness. I tried to not freak out and tried to just breathe in and out calmly without knocking over the resonator.

Things started to get more interesting…I then began to feel this pressure on my 3rd eye, where the cintamani stone was – almost like someone’s thumb was pressing down, then I started to feel pressure on the sides of my temples. Again, during this – I have no idea the meaning, what is supposed to be happening, is it good, or bad…I am just trying to stay calm at this point.

And finally, the grand finale of the experience, where the resonator was, I actually started to feel like it was very hot, like burning, and I opened up my eye to just check to make sure I wasn’t on fire or anything – lol.

At this point, I was like, okay, this is enough, I have no idea what is happening, but feeling this intense heat is freaking me out. Even though they told me I could yell out at them for their attention, I didn’t want to be a weinie and just tried to telepathically tell them I had had enough and was ready to get out.

I think that worked, and they came back. I have no idea how long I was in there, it was supposed to be 30 min, but it felt longer than that. As they came in, my friend was standing there and I didn’t want to influence her experience, so I just said “that was intense”, as they removed the resonator and crystals off of me and I scooted out.

As I got up, I could tell I was very shaky, jittery, and felt very weird. They could tell that I was ungrounded and told me to sit outside and get grounded in the garden. So, I sat out there on the patio, in front of the labradorite table in the chair and relaxed a bit while the setting sun warmed my body. It felt so good to be out there.

After a while I got more settled internally and didn’t feel jittery anymore, so I went back inside where they did another treatment called a light mandala system. As I shared my experience with them, they wondered if I was clearing energy for the collective – which is why I felt the burning energy.

During my own journey, one of the things that is very notable is that I have a lot of experiences, but I really don’t know the meaning or message and so a lot of times I seek out others to help me with the interpretation. This is one area that I would like to improve upon.

As for the other experiences I had in the chamber, I really don’t know the meaning. I’m just kind of rolling with it, knowing that in time, I will piece everything together.

One thing that I do want to clarify – is that I am extremely sensitive to energy, so my experience was probably way more intense than other people’s. But I’ve also done a lot of things to raise my vibration over the past few years.

I asked my friend what they experienced, and she said that she could feel the energy – go across her forehead and then felt emotional. So, it definitely was helping her heal some emotional wounds.

I felt a bit disconnected afterwards. Talking in a coherent manner was challenging. I had an hour drive home – and that was also a bit challenging. I just felt a little out of it and still somewhat ungrounded. Normally I carry my black tourmaline with me to help with grounding– but of course I left it at home – ugh!

But I could definitely tell that I had more internal energy. My overall energy just felt stronger.

I felt somewhat energized, wasn’t ready to go to sleep that night, but slept pretty well. I woke up energized, but over the next few days, I think that the energy started to take effect and I had bouts of sleeplessness and fatigue while my body processed the energy. One notable thing was that my dog, that sleeps with me, seemed to be getting up and jumping up on one side of the bed and then the other through the night.

I wonder if my shift in energy affected him. One thing that I learned about after my Kundalini activation – is that when you have a large increase in energy, that it can bother you if you are sleeping with someone. For some reason, that increase in energy bothers you to the point where you can’t sleep in the same bed with them. I found that out years later, but thought it was interesting because I would move onto the couch, then the guest bed – I just played musical sleeping locations after my Kundalini was activated. So, I wondered if that was the case here – that my dog was being bothered by my energy or maybe I was bothered by his energy and waking up?

I was also exhausted for the next few days – very groggy. After a few days, I started to feel more balanced, but it definitely had an impact on me. I think that I am still getting adjusted to it. I have a feeling that I won’t be sleeping as much – which is good, because I can always use more time.

I will do a blog in a few months to discuss how this healing modality has impacted me longer term.

If you feel drawn to experience any healing modality, follow your intuition. You will be guided to what you need along your journey.

Spiritual Insights I

I’ve had a lot of insights recently so I thought I’d share what I’ve learned. One of the things that I do when I am starting to feel ‘off’ is I take a look at some general things in my life to figure out what is going on. I think a part of growth is being able to look at yourself in order to become more self-aware. It takes time and effort – it doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a constantly evolving path and process.

For me – I was not sleeping well, I was getting 4 hours of sleep, then when I was sleeping I felt like I was half awake/half asleep but having these dreams where it felt so real. So when I would wake up – I would feel disoriented.

Additionally, for the past few weeks I’ve been feeling almost like this internal pressure building. I think I feel the energies coming in before they arrive. I intuitively felt that the upcoming full moon on October 13th was going to be a doozy, so I actively took 4 days to myself to process the energy.

[One video that captures these experiences we are going through is by Bassnectar and the song is called Reaching Out – which is about a person breaking free from the prison of their mind – it’s really a cool video to check out – be sure to read the video description]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exQIlfAkbMU

To determine why I feel this way, I examine some of the areas in my life:

  • Stress
  • Lifestyle
  • Diet
  • Sleep
  • Hormones
  • Ascension

So when I feel off, I look at general things that are going on in my life.

  • Do I have a lot of stress?
  • Am I not taking care of myself?
  • Am I working too much?
  • Are my hormones out of whack?
  • Am I not sleeping well?

All of these different things are all tied in together in actuality. One can cause the other to go out of whack. The last question that I ask myself is:

  • Are the ascension energies making me feel off?

The last question above is one of the reasons why I tune into others on this spiritual journey to check in with them to see what they are experiencing.

I follow Aluna Ash on YouTube and she has been saying that these energies are just going to continue to build up and that they are going to be coming in waves one after the other through the rest of the year.

I had watched a video by Kelli Coffee and she said that if you are having a hard time right now it’s because you are resisting and that totally resonated with me. What is resistance? To me, in some form or fashion we are not allowing what it is that we want to experience, or create into our lives. First, we need to take a look at what it is that we want in our lives. Here are a few examples: joy, success, a great career, a great relationship, financial abundance.

Next, we need to ask ourselves:

  1. Do I think I deserve it?

Deserving something at the core has to do with messages we may have received in our childhood. At some core level, we might have (unintentionally) absorbed the message that we are not worthy of whatever it is. These could be messages we picked up directly or indirectly from our childhood from our parents, relatives, teachers, friends, etc.

So how do we go about identifying if we deserve something? We can’t move forward unless we are able to crack the code. I’d recommend:

  1. Counseling
  2. Journaling
  3. Hypnosis

I personally find the best way for me to go through what I’m feeling is to journal. I think back on my childhood and recall past memories and feelings. It’s a very good process to analyze and evaluate your internal realm. Not all of us can navigate this process though which is where a good counselor can help. I also believe that there are healers that can help you access these emotions, belief systems and help you work through them.

Next, we need to ask ourselves:

  1. Do I believe it is possible?

Even if you consciously think something is possible, there could be underlying programs that are running behind the scenes sabotaging your ability to move forward. One thing to remember here also – is that we are always creating – either consciously or unconsciously, so maybe you do believe something is possible, but you keep on focusing on the opposite of what you want. And that is one of the issues that we face.

Like a hamster on a wheel, we keep running on our own bullshit story.

For me personally, as I journaled, one of the things that I realized that I was rejecting the present moment. That is a form of resistance. Instead of being fully present and engaged in the moment, I was rejecting it, resentful and wanting to be doing something else. This was a big aha for me.

When it comes to the Law of Attraction, one of the most profound pieces of information I came across was of the concept “thoughts are electric, feelings are magnetic.” Those few words really helped me understand how we can ‘think’ all that we want, but it is the FEELING state that is what attracts something into your life. Because it’s magnetic!

The other key point here is that you are fully engaged in the moment (not resisting), aware of what you want, and FEEL as if it already exists. That last part is where it can be tricky to hold the faith.

Along these lines, I just watched a video by Bob Proctor which I highly recommend:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oz2NpjEX5TM&t=23s

As we go through the Ascension Process/Spiritual Awakening Process it’s important to do the necessary inner work. Journaling to me has been one of the most enlightening processes to help move me forward.

These energies can be difficult, but just remember to hang in there – we are all going through it together!
