Giving your

Giving your "All"

I thought for sure I would be writing about death this week since I just lost another close friend, and in a way, I am, but I want to focus on the empaths and on why and how important it is to save enough energy for yourself. I know it’s easy to get so caught up in caring for others and seeing to their needs that you forget to replenish yourself, and you let your root chakra get out of balance. Sometimes this happens when you’re in a situation where your normal path to replenishment is blocked, or you just don't feel you have time.  I do understand all of that, but I’ve also seen what can happen when you give all your energy to other people.G...

Handfasting

Handfasting

Bellisana 02/09/2018 0
Well, after 5 years, my roommate and I have decided to get married!!!!  I’m excited. He’s a wonderful man, and I don’t know what I’d do without him.  My best friend since junior high school is not only standing up with me, she’s also making my dress. I am truly blessed.Naturally, this has led me to do some refresher reading about the history of handfasting and the meanings behind it. Handfasting dates to the ancient Celts and involves the wrapping of the intended’s hands with a cord and tying a knot. Sounds simple enough, and overall, it is, but you can choose to use all four hands, right hands, left hands, or one of each, depending on what i...

Chakras: The Importance of Balance

Chakras: The Importance of Balance

Bellisana 01/07/2018 0
ChakrasWe receive our personal energy from several sources. Our major energy centers connect to major organs that govern other body parts. Each of these main energy centers forms what we call a chakra. Chakra means wheel or disk in Sanskrit, and you might find it easier to think of the chakras as a disk-shaped spinning vortex within a column of energy that runs along the spine in the center of our spiritual being to balance us. While our bodies contain several minor chakras that assist in the operation of our bodies and minds; the seven main chakras form the energy centers in our body and help provide energy to the others. These “spinning whe...

Chakras

I think we’re going to be on chakras, off and on, for a while.  I’ve started a book to try to make chakras a little more accessible at deeper levels for those new to chakras.To understand Chakras thoroughly takes time, and most people don’t have that level of time to commit to them.  I've always found them fascinating, so my goal is to pass on some of that more in-depth knowledge in a way that will make it easier for people to understand.For example, when we start looking at Chakras, we find that it involves our chakras, generally there are believed to be seven; however, some systems use nine, or 12. In addition, it involves the Kundalini ene...

Zen Space: The Vision Board

Zen Space: The Vision Board

Bellisana 14/04/2018 0
Finally, it’s officially spring, and Beltane is fast approaching. As I finish my vision board, I thought I would share what helps me when I’m doing my vision board, and hopefully, my tips will help you as well. As you know, for me, this is part of the whole spring cleaning, rebirth ritual to renew my mind and my office space, so I want all the energy in it to be positive. We’ve discussed setting up and making sure your Vision board is where you can easily see it every day.I view this recreating my space process as my own spring ritual, and while we will probably attend the local Beltane ritual, this is how I connect the creative energy of my ...
