Simplifying Childhood May Protect Against Mental Health Issues

aDear Friends,
a little while ago I shared a post about the changes in our society and how more and more young families are choosing to travel in order to educate their children. Also in the article something extraordinary is happening in the world right now, the same phenomena was mentioned. Last week we spoke about planting a seed of meditation and inner communion in our children, introducing our children to authentic spiritual expression, and supporting our children to develop faith for their life path, in which we received first insides how to help our children cultivate an inner relationship with their higher self. But as we know human beings are made of spirit and matter and so we heard in dirty kids equal healthy kids, how deeply important a loving contact with earth truly is for human beings.

And now this lovely article from raisinggood crossed my path, in which the author shares with us insides about the mental health effect of a simple life style and less entertainment overload. I hope you connect with the read and find your own happy childhood days of simple joy in the lines!!
Simply Love!
Edith

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

When my Dad was growing up he had one jumper each winter. One. Total. He remembers how vigilantly he cared for his jumper. If the elbows got holes in them my Grandma patched them back together. If he lost his jumper he’d recount his steps to find it again. He guarded it like the precious gift it was. He had everything he needed and not a lot more. The only rule was to be home by dinner time. My Grandma rarely knew exactly where her kids were. They were off building forts, making bows and arrows, collecting bruises and bloody knees and having the time of their lives. They were immersed in childhood.Girl (3-5) playing in mudBut the world has moved on since then. We’ve become more sophisticated. And entered a unique period in which, rather than struggling to provide enough parents are unable to resist providing too much. In doing so, we’re unknowingly creating an environment in which mental health issues flourish. When I read Kim John Payne’s book, Simplicity Parenting one message leaped off the page. Normal personality quirks combined with the stress of “too much” can propel children into the realm of disorder. A child who is systematic may be pushed into obsessive behaviors. A dreamy child may lose the ability to focus.

Payne conducted a study in which he simplified the lives of children with attention deficit disorder. Within four short months 68% went from being clinically dysfunctional to clinically functional. The children also displayed a 37% increase in academic and cognitive aptitude, an effect not seen with commonly prescribed drugs like Ritalin. As a new parent I find this both empowering and terrifying. We officially have a massive opportunity and responsibility to provide an environment in which our children can thrive physically, emotionally and mentally.
So, what are we getting wrong and how can we fix it?

THE BURDEN OF TOO MUCH
Early in his career, Payne volunteered in refugee camps in Jakarta, where children were dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder. He describes them as, “jumpy, nervous, and hyper-vigilant, wary of anything novel or new.” Years later Payne ran a private practice in England, where he recognized many affluent English children were displaying the same behavioral tendencies as the children living in war zones half a world away. Why would these children living perfectly safe lives show similar symptoms?
Payne explains that although they were physically safe, mentally they were also living in a war zone of sorts, “Privy to their parents’ fears, drives, ambitions, and the very fast pace of their lives, the children were busy trying to construct their own boundaries, their own level of safety in behaviors that weren’t ultimately helpful.”

Suffering with a “cumulative stress reaction” as a result of the snowballing effect of too much, children develop their own coping strategies to feel safe. Parents and society are conscious of the need to protect our children physically. We legislate car seats, bike helmets and hover in playgrounds. But protecting mental health is more obscure. But, sadly, we are messing up. Modern day children are exposed to a constant flood of information which they can’t process or rationalize. They’re growing up faster as we put them into adult roles and increase our expectations of them. So, they look for other aspects of their life they can control.jTHE FOUR PILLARS OF EXCESS
Naturally as parents we want to provide our kids with the best start in life. If a little is good, we think more is better, or is it? We enroll them in endless activities. Soccer. Music. Martial arts. Gymnastics. Ballet. We schedule play dates with precision. And we fill every space in their rooms with educational books, devices and toys. The average western child has in excess of 150 toys each and receives an additional 70 toys per year. With so much stuff children become blinded and overwhelmed with choice.
They play superficially rather than becoming immersed deeply and lost in their wild imaginations. Simplicity Parenting encourages parents to keep fewer toys so children can engage more deeply with the ones they have. Payne describes the four pillars of excess as having too much stuff, too many choices, too much information and too much speed. When children are overwhelmed they lose the precious down time they need to explore, reflect and release tension. Too many choices erodes happiness, robbing kids of the gift of boredom which encourages creativity and self-directed learning. And most importantly “too much” steals precious time.

PROTECTING CHILDHOOD
Similar to the anecdote of the heat slowly being turned up and boiling the unsuspecting frog, so too has society slowly chipped away at the unique wonder of childhood, redefining it and leaving our kid’s immature brains drowning trying to keep up. Many refer to this as a “war on childhood”.
Developmental Psychologist David Elkind reports kids have lost more than 12 hours a week of free time per week in the last two decades meaning the opportunity for free play is scarce. Even preschools and kindergartens have become more intellectually-oriented. And many schools have eliminated recess so children have more time to learn.

The time children spend playing in organized sports has been shown to significantly lower creativity as young adults, whereas time spent playing informal sports was significantly related to more creativity. It’s not the organized sports themselves that destroy creativity but the lack of down time. Even two hours per week of unstructured play boosted children’s creativity to above-average levels.

PARENTS TAKE CHARGE
So, how do we as parents protect our kids in this new “normal” society has created?
Simple, we say no. We protect our kids and say no, so we can create space for them to be kids. No, Sam can’t make the birthday party on Saturday. No, Sophie can’t make soccer practice this week. And we recreate regular down time providing a sense of calm and solace in their otherwise chaotic worlds. It provides a release of tension children know they can rely on and allows children to recover and grow, serving a vital purpose in child development.
We filter unnecessary busyness and simplify their lives. We don’t talk about global warming at the dinner table with a seven year old. We watch the news after our kids are asleep. We remove excessive toys and games from our toddler’s room when they’re sleeping. We recreate and honor childhood.momOur children have their whole lives to be adults and to deal with the complexities of life, but only a fleetingly short time in which they can be kids. Silly, fun loving kids. Childhood serves a very real purpose. It’s not something to “get through”. It’s there to protect and develop young minds so they can grow into healthy and happy adults. When society messes too much with childhood, young brains react. By providing a sense of balance and actively protecting childhood we’re giving our children the greatest gift they’ll ever receive.

Our Psychic Abilities Have Increased – Creating A Healing Friendship With Trees

onnenby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
just a month ago, when we passed the powerful Pisces New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse, we collectively had the chance to open our physical channels and develop a deep inner connection with the elemental forces of nature. Just about a week ago, I talked about the fact that our psychic abilities have collectively increased, and that brings strength to this inner relationships. One of the realms we can exchange with, is the Kindom of the weeds, flowers, bushes and trees that are surrounding us. A conscious interaction between the Nature Kingdom and the human race, is as old as human life itself! Our pagan ancestors worshiped trees. In many traditions in Europe, trees are admired for their magical, healing and grounding powers.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

It is known, that Plato and Aristotle received their deepest insights in the olive groves around Athens. Buddha found enlightenment beneath a bo tree, and Isaac Newton received his “gravity theory” while watching an apple fall from the tree, under which he was sitting.
Scientific research confirmed that simple being in a green environment reduces the human stress level and blood pressure, has a positive effect on mental illnesses, on depression, helps with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration problems, increases your reaction time – as well as deeply nurtures body and soul. The sounds, smells, sights, the texture and the taste of the air tickle our senses, which leads to improved health and well-being.
So tree Hugging is not only for Hippies to the contrary, “let’s make it a fashion trend”!! Hugging a tree can boost our health and the happiness we feel about being alive, so don’t be shy!!
In order to create a new relationship with trees, the first step is to make sure you feel worthy to be their co-creative partner. Relax your mind and body, breath deeply and allow the subtle energies – that are their natural language of all existence – to create an energetic field for connection between you.
Trust and the trees will assist you to open your energy channels and come to inner calmness. This space of presence allows you to feel the energetic exchange. Just play with it! Confidence comes with practice!!m;kllHere is a short list of trees that are especially helpful to the human race, for our collective evolution process!

The excess to new dimensions from the BIRCH TREE:
Birch trees support us in our forgiveness process and awaken the energy of new beginnings inside of us. It helps us cleans from the impact of our past. Shamans, Druids and Celtics used the Birch wood tree to enter altered states of consciousness. It reminds us to live our life with purpose and master our personal energy field.

The energies of trust and faith from the CHERRY TREE:
Cherry trees whisper to us about the chance for a new awakening. They support us to remove all obstacles that are preventing our spiritual growth. It is the burning fire of the inner Phoenix, the rising from the ashes of the past. It stands for the cycles of re-birth, the self-creation of a new life after every mental death.

Access to universal energies from the ELM TREE:
Elm trees are channels for the higher vibrations of the divine. They help us get in touch with the invisible world behind the veil of human perception. For our personal soul path, they assist us in hearing our inner voice and to have faith in our intuition. On an energetic level the family collective of the Elm trees is stronger connected to each other, than any other tree species. A brotherhood of trees!

Harmony between heaven and earth from the HONEYSUCKLE TREE:
Honeysuckle is the perfect plant partner to empower the work of healer, light-worker and energy-worker. It awakens confidence for our creations, the use of psychic energies and the magnetic attraction required for manifestation on the material plane. It reminds us of our authentic personal power, our highest potential, the awakening to psychic abilities and the courage to follow our own beliefs.

A gateway between the worlds from the WISTERIA:
Wisteria provides us with a gateway between the human species and the divine realm. It is known as “the ecstasy of the poet”, as it helps us to awaken and draw in inspiration and good vibrations for divinely channeled creative process. The Wisteria flower serves us in the manifestation of our true self, as it activates the heart chakra and the throat chakra. On our path of illumination, it provides the needed spiritual influence to reach a higher state of consciousness.shaPower for your prayers from the BEECH TREE:
There is a legend reporting that Sanskrit, the most ancient language of prayer, has first been carved on a Beech bark. Therefor the power of the written word, spiritual wisdom, knowledge of the past and a love for literature are associated with this tree. It awakens tolerance and respect for all existence and helps with the alignment to the guidance of your higher self.

Balance between the female and the male forces from the MAPLE TREE:
Maple trees help strengthen our connection between Yin & Yang, the dance of the polarities, the electrical and the magnetic powers. They ground our psychic abilities and spiritual energies. Maple trees help women illuminate their inner fire, and supports men in the awakening of their feminine nurturing nature, their intuition and creativity.

Protection during inner transitions form the ALDER TREE:
The raven, a bird of great knowledge and perception, is associated with the Alder tree. The related element is water. The Alder reminds us by divine law, that everything is constantly in movement. So even when it seams like we are not moving forward at all, we do – only a bit slow. Patients is required now!

Alignment for your chakra centers from the LILAC:
The Lilac is the best partner to use in your meditating practice as it has the potential to connect us with our spirit guides. It attracts the help of protective spirits into our work and its healing power reminds us of the divine beauty within the individuality of all things. When used for aromatherapy, Lilac awakens mental clarity and freedom.

Regeneration and rejuvenation from the OLIVE TREE:
The Olive tree increases our sensitivity, our hope, our joy for life and our deepest longing for peace and harmonious relationships. It helps us develop the courage and honor of a spiritual warrior and is therefor associated with gods and goddesses like Pallas Athena, Poseidon and Zeus. Olive trees support our physical self-healing abilities and spiritual growth.jDear Ones, I wish you nurturing, healing experiences when you are getting in touch with your higher sensory abilities and the frequencies of the tree spirits!!! Remember the strongest connections can be achieved with the joyful, relaxed and lighthearted approach of a child!!! Have fun playing with our brothers and sisters from the Nature Kingdom!
Blessings and Nature Love!!

Native American Wisdom For The Collective Awakening Process

aby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over the last few weeks we have been invited to take a deep look at the meaning of our sexual relationships in the past, and the changes we are facing to create the new relationship paradigm. At the same time the collective awakening energies have together with the higher amount of pineal gland awakenings, brought the chance to create a deeper sensory relationship with the elements. Now it is time to make ourselves familiar with some guidelines and rules of Native American wisdom, that can lead the human collective into integrating the new born abilities.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

We have been invited to nourish and protect our childlike innocence, to be curious about life and be in the heart, and this are the qualities that are bringing forward our new ability to live aligned with this divine guidelines for the Golden Age of Humanity, that we are manifesting right now!! Finally the first pioneers on this wonderful planet are truly ready to go beyond race, gender, age, religion, tradition, language and patriotism, and create the communities of the future we collectively desire!! The first soul tribes are forming, THE FUTURE HAS BEGONE…

We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For
You have been telling the people,
That is the eleventh hour.
Now, you must go and tell the people,
That This is the hour;

And there are things to be considered.
Where are you living? What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in the right relationship?eWhere is your water?
Know your garden…
It is time to speak the truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.

There is a river flowing now very fast,
It is so great and swift.
That there are those who will be afraid,
They will try to hold onto the shore.

They will feel they are being pulled apart,
And they will suffer greatly.
Understand that the river knows its divine destination.

The elders say we must let go of the shore.
Push off into the middle of the river,
Keep our eyes open and our heads above water.
And I say: see who is in there with you,
Hold fast to them and celebrate!

At this time in history,
We are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves!
For the moment we do,
Our spiritual growth and journey comes to an end.

The time of the Lone Wolf is over! Gather ourselves!
Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done,
In a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are all about to go on a sacred journey,
We are the ones we have been waiting for!

The Collective Awakening Process & The Native American Code of Ethics

indi

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
Tonight, just 4days before the Cancer Full Moon, we experience the night of the Solstice. In the North it is Winter Solstice and in the South it is Summer Solstice. During tonight’s transition, the Earth will align directly with the Galactic Center. Powerful waves of Light Codes bring higher frequencies of divine balance and harmony. This energies will direct the course of our Planet’s evolution and all of her inhabitants, for the months to come. The Solstice is the most powerful and perfect time, to consciously align ourselves with the intentions we have for our soul work, during the year that lies ahead of us.
Last week we talked about the collective cleansing of the first chakra, that has taken place for the human race. This energetic clearing allows us to sense on profound levels, how we need to create our collective future as one race on planet earth. And this is where the Native American Code of Ethics comes into play. First thing worth knowing is, that every indigenous race existing on the planet right now, is holding a particular vibration of the divine blueprint, in order to show humanity the possibility for a healthy world. The Native American race has taken on the responsibility, to represent the wisdom and vibration of the divine/hermetic laws, in translation for behavior rules for the collective human race.

The Seven Hermetic Principles are as follows:
1. The Principle of Mentalism.
2. The Principle of Correspondence.
3. The Principle of Vibration.
4. The Principle of Polarity.
5. The Principle of Rhythm.
6. The Principle of Cause and Effect.
7. The Principle of Gender.the-seven-hermetic-principles-for-manifestingThe ways how Native American traditions and customs have taken care of a respectful treatment of every inhabitant of mother earth, during life and death, represent an appropriate behavior for all human beings. The behavior we have to adapt to, in order to create the Golden Age of Aquarius. In order to live in healthy and strong tribes, where everyone is equal to the other and brings their work force into the co-creation, for the good of all beings involved. A Brotherhood of Men.

The wisdom the Native American life style is barring for us, that comes from translating the hermetic principles on an emotional level, are as following:
1. Equality of all Existence / Brotherhood of Men
2. Acceptance of all powers of spirit and mater
3. Awareness and Respect for all manifested existence
4. Piece between all tribes and beings
5. Justice and Honor in maintaining the human rights
6. Authenticity and Honesty in thought, word and action
7. Maintain inner strength, in order to intensify the power, and than use it for the good of all beings.

28This is how the Native American Code of Ethics states it:
Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often.
The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.
Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path.
Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul.

I hope this little inside into our divinely desired behavior, will allow you to see where we are collectively off the line!! That it allows you to see yourself in the mirror of the divine laws, and have the courage to change where you need to align yourself! May the contact to the divine guidance of your higher-self and supportive angels be with you, when you choose to grow and move on, during this loving Winter/Summer Solstice transit!
Love and Blessings!!!

THE SOLAR HARMONIC PRAYER – Turning Sunlight Into Nutrition

13by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
after yesterdays article about 14 steps how to help yourself shift to higher frequencies, and the two sections mentioned in the article about keeping our chakras clean and spending time in sunlight, this is a next step and perfect addition. It is a beautiful prayer that I long ago piked up along the way and shared with many of my clients. It helped me a lot to release old, fear based programming and pattern of the material world, and feel a daily increasing positive effect on my physical body. This prayer can help you profoundly in your personal ascension process, if you combine it with the tools of conscious breathing, the awareness of the divine golden ray of our I AM Presence and also use the prayers to the Ascended Master Buddha Gautama.  I hope you enjoy working with this amazing tool and have the most mind blowing success, of transforming the sunlight you breath into spiritual nutrition for your chakra system!

IN THIS BEAUTIFUL, THIS AMAZING MAGICAL MOMENT
I CELEBRATE MY ONENESS WITH THE EARTH AND THE SUN
BRINGING MY FULL AWARENESS INTO THIS MOMENT

I CONSCIOUSLY HONOR MY PHYSICAL BEING AS A COSMIC PORTAL,
A CHANNEL OF DIVINE CONSCIOUSNESS IN FLOW
A STAR GATE IN TIME AND SPACE

EVERY BREATH CRYSTALLIZES MY EXISTENCE AS A
CO-ORDINATE IN THE DIVINE IMMORTAL CONTINUUM,
CLEANSING MY EMOTIONAL BODY
MY MENTAL BODY BREAKS FREE OF ITS MORTAL CONFINES
AS I REMEMBER MY QUANTUM GALACTIC IDENTITY,
AWAKENING MY FEARLESS SELF

THROUGH MY CONSCIOUS COMMUNION
WITH THE ALCHEMICAL ELEMENT OF CREATION
MY SPIRITUAL IDENTITY MERGES IN PERFECT UNION
WITH ALL OTHER ASPECTS OF MYSELFaangTHIS ALCHEMY ALIGNS MY HUMAN EXPRESSION
WITH MY SOULS COVENANT
TO GIVE AND RECEIVE LOVE IN ALL THAT I DO
LOVE, PEACE AND ONENESS ARE MY PROTECTION

This potent and beautiful tool can also perfectly be combined with the Stellar Harmonic Prayer I shared some weeks earlier. This two complement each other perfectly!! The day and the night, the stars and the sun, the masculine and the feminine.

I am inviting you to make yourself familiar with this beautiful source of nutrition for our soul and energy body. Don’t forget to keep breathing deeply when you start feeling your body transforming back into light codes and sound frequencies! Keep shining your light thru the world!!! Keep awakening and sharing your true self!!! Blessings an Love ;-)!

The Alchemy of Conscious Breathing – The Golden Path of Ascension

breby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
do you remember my post about awakening the Inner Alchemist? In this article I talked about the Ascended Master Saint Germain and the violet flame of transformation, he is providing as his divine quality. This flame is the representation of the sacred inner fire of Alchemy (our capability to change and transform our momentary state of being – into a higher vibrating version of our TRUE SELF), and this fire needs your passionate breathing to stay alive and hungry. To be more specific: the intensity in which the fire of transformation inside you is burning – depends on your conscious understanding and conscious use of your breath. And, the more profound your understanding of the Magic and Alchemy your own breath is providing, the more alive, blissful and inter-connected it makes you feel – to simply breath in and out LIFE ITSELF.

So allow me to explain a bit more about the Alchemy of Breathing. When we decide to go thru the materialization process of becoming human beings, we are in our natural state of pure light and divine bliss. Our divine spirit than spirals down true the different layer of density, what we call dimensions, and begin to form a physical body within the body of our future mother. In co-creation of existence on Planet Earth, this physical manifestation is build from the Elementscalled the platonic solids.  And here lays the surprise and most important secret…. while we are creating our bodies, and our mothers feel matter growing… all that we feel is the stat of divinely blissful, warm water. So WATER is the first element we materialize on the planet! And that goes further… ever if we are born and our doctor is hitting our but… we still only feel water…. UNTIL we make the first conscious decision on planet earth – to take the first deep BREATH! In the millisecond we do so, it all comes together as one. Our Breath activates our awareness of being a spiritual being expressed in a physical manifestation – our body awareness and sensory self kick in, the EARTH element is born… and that activates the FIRE of LIFE and SURVIVAL….     the same fire you use when you breath in awareness, the violet flame of transformation and ascension, into your everyday life here and now.
That is the true and infinite power of you SIMPLE BREATHING. And it all happens under the supervision of the HOLY SPIRIT within.

platonic-solids-and-elementsBased on this bigger picture I think it is not hard to understand, that practicing conscious breathing helps improve our well being on a physical level. Which includes pain and symptom release for high blood pressure, migraines, headaches, anxiety, stress, chronic pain, depression, asthma, insomnia, nervousness, self-doubt, concentration loss, muscular tension, bad sleep, and that its a boost for the immune system. But also on a spiritual level we can boost our evolution, by connecting the dots in our mind – when we are in mindful breathing exercise. Becoming aware of the way we breathe, helps us reconnect to our inner place of peace, in the most challenging situations of everyday life!! Such a simple, build in tool, and such a divine abundance of use for the collective awakening of humanity! So call on the Master Saint Germain and the violet flame for your next conscious step in your personal evolution! You can make it as easy as repeating the prayers below, while reading the text above over and over (make it 3, 7 or 9 or 13 repetitions)!! And try deep breathing the next time you find yourself reaching for a pain reliever, you are feeling stressed out, are depressed, have problems with your sleep or need a momentary extra boost of physical power!

Master Saint Germain
In the name of the mighty victorious Presence of God, the
I AM,
Christ Consciousness within me,
I call to the beloved Master Saint Germain
and the transforming powers of the violet fire

Violet Flame Prayer
I AM a being of violet fire
I AM the purity God desires.

IMG_0133In general there is not “one correct way” of breathing. There are particular breathing techniques for yoga, for power walking, for swimming, a proper breathing for martial arts, a technique for taichi, playing the trumpet requires different breathing than singing does, and so on. You get my point! Anyway, here are four techniques you can give a try – in case you don’t have a favorite version jet!

#1: to practice in a private environment

  • Sit cross-legged in a dark, quiet room.
  • Close your eyes.
  • Using your thumb, cover up your right nostril, and breathe deeply through your left nostril for a count of 6.
  • Pause for a count of 2.
  • Remove your thumb, and cover your left nostril with your forefinger, and exhale completely through your right nostril for a count of 6.
  • Repeat 10 to 15 times.

#2: to practice in public spaces

  • Close your eyes if you can.
  • Inhale through your nose evenly and deeply for a count of 8.
  • Pause for a count of 3.
  • Exhale completely through your nose for a count of 8.
  • Pause for a count of 3.
  • Repeat 10 to 15 times.

#3: to help you fall asleep

  • Keeping your eyes closed, and lying flat on your back in bed, deeply inhale through your nose for a count of 6.
  • Pause for a count of 3.
  • Slowly exhale completely through your nose for a count of 6.
  • Pause for a count of 3.
  • Deeply inhale through your nose for a count of 8.
  • Pause for a count of 3.
  • Exhale completely through your nose for a count of 8.
  • Repeat steps, each time increasing the count by two until you stretch your breath out for as many counts as you can—try to get to 12! Once you’ve done this, repeat 10 times.

#4: for deep relaxation

For even deeper relaxation, try focusing on an affirmation during your inhales and exhales. Think the words “I” on your inhale and “AM” , can, do, feel, (what ever works for your situation – be creative!!) …. on your exhale….. Keep doing that for 3-5minutes and deeper layer can open from inside.BreathI hope this steps help to make you feel safe and confident while going thru the intense waves of our collective changes these days!! Remember to be kind and practice self-compassion, what ever is going on!! And allow your breath to guide you to a beautiful “deeper connection” with your true “higher self”! Above as below..  Keep breathing and have a little faith in yourself!!!  Blessings an Love!

1a moDear Friends,
again the Moon is bringing a strong wave of frequency shifts over us, that empathic people, highly sensitive people, Indigo Children and Crystal Children already start feeling in impact!! Make sure you have tons of alone time this weekend!! Rather cancel a social event or the other and spend conscious time in interaction and discovery games with your shadow side!!! The waves are strong already and we are still some days ahead, so it can not be wrong to be well prepared for the most intense part on the actual Super Full Moon day and night. Make sure to think kind and loving about yourself and hold your energy field clear, when ever you interact with others!!
Hope this words help you navigate the days to come!!
Love and Star Light! Edith

Shared with the kind permission of the wonderful Kelley Rosano:
The Taurus Moon on October 27 is a SuperMoon. This is the third SuperMoon in a row. The Pisces and Aries Moons were SuperMoons. The Taurus Moon is shining the light on what you love and value. When you align your goals with your core values, this promotes your success. Your power is in the choices you make today. Your future is determined by it. Your freedom and joy is in your ability to live authentically and in alignment with your core values. What you love and value is unique to you. It makes you what you are. What you are in truth is far more important than what you do. The world defines you by what you do. This is limiting. Who and what you are is much more interesting. This is finding the Gold in You.
The Sun is in Scorpio. Scorpio governs emotional truth. Scorpio rules what is hidden beneath the surface. You are made of both light and dark. You have a shadow. The shadow can hold buried treasures. Yes, there are negative aspects of yourself. More importantly your untapped potential. Pluto rules Scorpio. Scorpio rules the Eighth house of death and rebirth. The mysteries, passion and obsession. It is time to go deep within. Be who you really are. This includes embracing your shadow self. The unexpressed aspects of self, which beg for expression. The shadow self was shamed, denied and/or abused in the past. Embrace the negative parts of yourself you would not put on your resume or Face Book. Love both your light and your dark. This creates wholeness and balance. When you repress your truth, it may come out as bad behavior. These shadow aspects of self are like characters in a play. They are begging for Self-expression. They are crying out to be heard by you. The more you deny your truth. The stronger the shadow side becomes. These aspects are like young orphan children coming home for the first time. Love yourself with arms wide open. This will unlock any blocked energy. Hidden talents and gifts may abide in these orphan aspects of self.
• What are you repressing?
• What is driving your choices?
• Are you coming from Love or fear?
• What is being revealed to you at the Taurus Moon?
Embracing your shadow will empower you. You will have more energy when you forgive your imperfections. Do not judge or criticize. Be a conscious observer of what is taking place inside of you. Give up your addiction to pain and drama. This is where most people are entangled. Having to continue to reincarnate repeatedly.
2aSee the bigger picture. Hold the vision of what you are creating. Let go of toxic entanglements. Pluto can empower you to regenerate yourself. Recreate your life. Financial independence is a worthy goal. It means real freedom. I can help you get there. Do you want good things to come to you? Be kind.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. — Ecclesiastes 3:1
Fall is upon you. Clean out your closets. Clean out the draws. Clean out the closets of your mind. Purify yourself. This makes you strong. You are mind, body, heart and spirit. Take care of them. It is cleansing time. The Universe is cleansing you. Release what no longer serves you. Do not resist what your soul has chosen. You are the master of your destiny. You are a powerful creator. What are you creating?
• What is your promise to the universe?
• Who have you come to be?
• What role have you come to play at the turning of the ages?
Take charge of your life. Do what is right for you. Listen to your soul. Your soul holds your soul agreements. That is what you have come to do and with whom. What are you attracting? Do you like what you are attracting? If not, change yourself. You are your point of attraction. The energy you send out is the results you get back. Change your habits that are not working. Change your behavior. You will change your life for the better. You can love your life. You can love your work. What is holding you back? Who or What is in your way to your happiness?
Taurus rules what you love and value. Scorpio is what other people love and value. What your partner loves and values. The Full Moon is revealing the polarization between what you want and need. And what other people want and need. “What’s mine?” asks the Taurus Moon. “I want you body and soul,” says the Scorpio Sun. Finding the middle ground is not always easy to do. It is worth the effort. Venus is in a positive energy flow with Pluto. This can empower your healing and finances. Venus is coupled with Mars and Jupiter. This can strengthen your alliances and money. Passion is strong at this Harvest Moon. Chiron is opposing Venus at the Full Moon. This brings acute awareness to what needs healing. Love you more than the need for a relationship. Nurture your self-esteem. Love is not pain. Love is not something you earn. Love is not something you deserve. Love just is. Love flows to you daily form your mighty I Am Presence. Creator says, “Come and get your Love.” You are loved.
dfThe Taurus Full Moon message is release what no longer serves you. Remove the chafe from the wheat. Cut away the fat. Get lean and gleam. Fall is the season for cutting back. Not adding more work to your days. The light is decreasing. The days are getting shorter. There is less light to work with. Winter is coming. This is not a time to push. You want to rest and restore yourself. Rejuvenate your body. Get plenty of sleep. Do a body cleanse. Less is more. Work less make more time for you. Work less and make more life for you. Work less and make more love for you. The latest research has shown that peoples’ productivity is highest when they limit their work hours to six hours a day. Working longer hours does not provide greater output. People need more vacation time. Let go of what is not working for you. Let go with grace and ease. Free yourself. You will begin to love your life. You will love your work. You will work with passion. Do what you love. Be who you really are. Be kind. Shine on. You will be a beaming example of love and light. Free yourself. You will free all. All Are One.

New Relationships Are Emerging – In Friendship With A Tree!!

jby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
last week I talked about the amazing ability human beings have to connect and be in relationship with other dimensional realms. One of this realms is the Kingdom of Nature, the weeds, flowers, bushes and trees surrounding us. The conscious interaction between the Nature Kingdom and the human race, is as old as human life itself! Our pagan ancestors worshiped trees. In many traditions in Europe, trees are admired for their magical, healing and grounding powers.

It is known, that Plato and Aristotle received their deepest insights in the olive groves around Athens. Buddha found enlightenment beneath a bo tree, and Isaac Newton realized his “gravity theory” while watching an apple fall from the tree, under which he was sitting.
Scientific research confirmed that simple being in a green environment reduces the human stress level and blood pressure, has a positive effect on mental illnesses, on depression, helps with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration problems, increases your reaction time – as well as deeply nurtures body and soul. The sounds, smells, sights, the texture and the taste of the air tickle our senses, which leads to improved health and well-being.
So tree Hugging is not only for Hippies to the contrary, “let’s make it a fashion trend”!! Hugging a tree can boost our health and the happiness we feel about being alive, so don’t be shy!!
In order to create a new relationship with trees, the first step is to make sure you feel worthy to be their co-creative partner. Relax your mind and body, breath deeply and allow the subtle energies – that are their natural language of all existence – to create an energetic field for connection between you.
Trust and the trees will assist you to open your energy channels and come to inner calmness. This space of presence allows you to feel the energetic exchange. Just play with it! Confidence comes with practice!!mHere is a short list of trees that are especially important for the human race, at this very important point of our collective evolution!

The excess to new dimensions from the BIRCH TREE:
Birch trees support us in our forgiveness process and awaken the energy of new beginnings inside of us. It helps us cleans from the impact of our past. Shamans, Druids and Celtics used the Birch wood tree to enter altered states of consciousness. It reminds us to live our life with purpose and master our personal energy field.

The energies of trust and faith from the CHERRY TREE:
Cherry trees whisper to us about the chance for a new awakening. They support us to remove all obstacles that are preventing our spiritual growth. It is the burning fire of the inner Phoenix, the rising from the ashes of the past. It stands for the cycles of re-birth, the self-creation of a new life after every mental death.

Access to universal energies from the ELM TREE:
Elm trees are channels for the higher vibrations of the divine. They help us get in touch with the invisible world behind the veil of human perception. For our personal soul path, they assist us in hearing our inner voice and to have faith in our intuition. On an energetic level the family collective of the Elm trees is stronger connected to each other, than any other tree species. A brotherhood of trees!

Harmony between heaven and earth from the HONEYSUCKLE TREE:
Honeysuckle is the perfect plant partner to empower the work of healer, light-worker and energy-worker. It awakens confidence for our creations, the use of psychic energies and the magnetic attraction required for manifestation on the material plane. It reminds us of our authentic personal power, our highest potential, the awakening to psychic abilities and the courage to follow our own beliefs.

A gateway between the worlds from the WISTERIA:
Wisteria provides us with a gateway between the human species and the divine realm. It is known as “the ecstasy of the poet”, as it helps us to awaken and draw in inspiration and good vibrations for divinely channeled creative process. The Wisteria flower serves us in the manifestation of our true self, as it activates the heart chakra and the throat chakra. On our path of illumination, it provides the needed spiritual influence to reach a higher state of consciousness.bodhitreegalleryPower for your prayers from the BEECH TREE:
There is a legend reporting that Sanskrit, the most ancient language of prayer, has first been carved on a Beech bark. Therefor the power of the written word, spiritual wisdom, knowledge of the past and a love for literature are associated with this tree. It awakens tolerance and respect for all existence and helps with the alignment to the guidance of your higher self.

Balance between the female and the male forces from the MAPLE TREE:
Maple trees help strengthen our connection between Yin & Yang, the dance of the polarities, the electrical and the magnetic powers. They ground our psychic abilities and spiritual energies. Maple trees help women illuminate their inner fire, and supports men in the awakening of their feminine nurturing nature, their intuition and creativity.

Protection during inner transitions form the ALDER TREE:
The raven, a bird of great knowledge and perception, is associated with the Alder tree. The related element is water. The Alder reminds us by divine law, that everything is constantly in movement. So even when it seams like we are not moving forward at all, we do – only a bit slow. Patients is required now!

Alignment for your chakra centers from the LILAC:
The Lilac is the best partner to use in your meditating practice as it has the potential to connect us with our spirit guides. It attracts the help of protective spirits into our work and its healing power reminds us of the divine beauty within the individuality of all things. When used for aromatherapy, Lilac awakens mental clarity and freedom.

Regeneration and rejuvenation from the OLIVE TREE:
The Olive tree increases our sensitivity, our hope, our joy for life and our deepest longing for peace and harmonious relationships. It helps us develop the courage and honor of a spiritual warrior and is therefor associated with gods and goddesses like Pallas Athena, Poseidon and Zeus. Olive trees support our physical self-healing abilities and spiritual growth.

I wish you nurturing, healing experiences when you are getting in touch with your higher sensory abilities and the frequencies of the tree spirits!!! Note: The strongest connection can be achieved with the joyful, relaxed and lighthearted approach of a child!!!
Have fun playing with our brothers and sisters from the Nature realm!
Blessings and Oneness-feelings!!

Every New Moon a New Beginning – 7 simple steps to align with the energy field of the shift!

nm hippyby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the energies of the New Moon are approaching and easy tips came to my mind, how we can actively support this divine  forces with simple effective changes. Changes, the universe accepts like offerings – offerings to let the wind of change come in and take away the old. Not always it is required to quit our job, divorce our partner or start a brand new work life, when the energies of change are knocking on our door. But, universal seasonal frequencies do not care for where we are standing in our lives – they cater to the human collective “ready or not”.
That means, the forces of meta-physic movement within the cosmos lovingly offer to us the opportunities, situations and the spiritual strength, that we need to let go, move on and create change. If the change is conscious or unconscious, if you experience it as easy or as torture, as gain or as loss – is entirely a reflection of your personal mindset and vibration.
The support to go the easy way, drop what ever we don’t need anymore, move on from a place of pain to a place of light, is in the air every single New Moon of your life.
This particular Virgo New Moon also provides us with a partial eclipse, which makes the impact on all related human collective pattern even stronger. When ever you desire to initiate a small shift in your homes vibration, you can use the steps bellow to transform the energy – the source of your inner stability and clarity.

7 simple steps to change the vibration in your home:

1. ) Take a long hot shower 
Sounds simple enough!? I am sure you all know the feeling of coming home from an exhausting day at work, with your body tired and your mind only wanting to rest. If you than take a shower, you can feel refreshed, rejuvenated and fit again. If you now add to this natural result some conscious awareness and affirmations, the effect will intensify strongly. Your personal energy field is part of your home – what you can let go of from inside – is also done for the whole frequency of your safe haven.
So step into the shower, with the intention to internally and externally let go of what ever it is that no longer serves your higher-self and spiritual development. Speak out loud or repeat in the mind the prayer below, to the violet flame of transformation (one of the divine rays of angelic light, or existence is build of). If it is the memory of people who triggered your emotions, a situation you witnessed that hurt you soul or simple lower vibrating human thought pattern – everything can be evolved, transformed and refined by the violet flame of your inner divinity.

Violet Flame blaze, blaze oh blaze,
in through and around every single electron.
Transform me / us / the room / again into dancing light
until everything flows in
the harmony of t
he divine plan 

2. ) Clean your Household
The space we are living in, is the space we give our imagination, our dreams and desire to unfold in just exactly that way, that we like them best. If your home is big and you are already tired from the day, than don’t clean it all!! Just make sure your sleeping room is tip top and ready to receive the blessings of a new beginning!!
When we consciously clean our home, we think of letting go of the old and unhealthy in our life. We wash out the corners of our stuck mind, and open a door for inspiration and guidance to come to us. Simply giving the dust you sweep out the last thought of conscious goodbye, gives the action a twist that the universe will respond to. You can intensify the effect, by repeating the simple phrase of the prayer to the violet flame during your entire cleaning process.

3. ) Cleanse your house with White Sage
White Sage is widely known as one of the strongest healing, transforming and transcending sacred plants on the planet. That is good news because it means you don’t have to be a professional in order to be effective. To the contrary, the ability, the trait, the power is in the plant itself. No need to be shy, as you cant go wrong even if it is your first time. Sage is deeply rooted in the Native American healing arts, ancestral linage and tradition and can therefore also open a portal to this energetic field.
Don’t think to much about it! Get a sage stick, light it, blow on it and walk in a spiraling movement from the center of every room in your house, to the furthers corners of its extension. !!!!Please, don’t forget the dark little corners!!!! When you use common sense than it is clear, that especially places like overfilled storage-rooms, toilets (just think for a second what you do in there) and unused guestrooms – need even more of your attention!! And, also here – repeating the simple phrase of the prayer to the violet flame, makes the effect much stronger.

4. ) Spray rose petal water in all rooms:
You can get authentic, pure rose petal water in selected New Age shops and some well equipped homeopathic drugstores. If you don’t get a made up tincture, you can always look out for rose petal oil to mix it with water. In case that is you choice – just make sure that it is a pure and high quality oil – no chemicals involved!!
A pure and high vibrating rose petal oil or water, is holding the angelic vibration of the color pink. The color also of the rose quartz crystal, which is the frequency of unconditional love and divine grace. Qualities you might enjoy watching unfold in your world!
To apply to mix, just adapt the same spiral walk as with the sage and spray, splash or trickle water in all 4 directions of the room. As before – to repeat the prayer to the violet flame at the same time, tops up the strength of your work!

5. ) Change the bed sheets
It is a task easy enough done, simple feels good and, that way it is more likely for the “other world” to reach you in lucid dreams. When you are swaying in the smell and feeling of a set of fresh bed sheets, you automatically  let go more profoundly of your daily sorrows. As soon as you sink deep enough, a door opens to your inner guidance. What comes next, is up to spirit!
moon-96906. ) Move the furniture
You don’t have to change the position of your complete interior to create the feeling of change, already small adjustments of little items can make a big difference. You could move the coffee table to a different place, change the position of the TV stool, even if you just bring some pillows from the guestroom to the livingroom – the livingroom to your room and so on, it can change the feeling of how we perceive our space. Another easy way to feel brand new, is to change the color scheme of pillows, curtains and carpets in your rooms.

7. ) Bless your home
Everybody on this planet comes from the same source – the divine essence, and everybody in the world – has the power to bless. You  might not be used to bless jet and it might feel weird at first to consider yourself as somebody entitled to bless, but it work like riding a bike. That also felt unstable, bumpy and a bit weird at the beginning. With repetition and training of the mind to see yourself as worthy, the effect of your blessings will gain in strength. And last but not least – while you are blessings your home, think of the fact that you are a part of it –  don’t miss out on sending some self-love and blessing to YOU!!

I hope that my words provide you with inspiration, guidance and some good fun! Wish you “inner world changing” New Beginnings at every New Moon to come!!!
Love and Blessings Edith
