The Theme for June is “Adaptability”

June is the month when most flowers really shine.  So get outdoors and enjoy them!  It is a time of year that is filled with celebrations – graduations, weddings, Father’s Day, etc.   June 21st is the Summer Solstice and one of my most favorite days as it is always energetically powerful.

This is also a month where adaptability, transformation and transition are the energetic themes. Keep your vibration as high as you can and navigate it well. Know that we are here at Rose Healing to support you.

Sound Healing has become such a huge part of my holistic practice for both individual sessions and group.  For several years now, I have been using Tibetan Bowls, Crystal Bowls and Drums in my individual practice. Then last spring, I was introduced to the Quartzophone Crystal Harp when visiting Maine. I knew as soon as I heard this instrument that I was supposed to own one and play it. For the past year, I have offered regular sound baths for groups at Rose Healing Center with the Crystal Harp. This past week, I was interviewed by Kacey Morabito Grean on her Shine On Radio/Podcast - see above to hear the podcast and listen to a free sound healing.

I was in Maine again this past week at the beautiful Love Light Illuminations Center where I was first introduced to the Crystal Harp. I am happy to announce that Cheryl Banfield will be returning to the Rose Healing Center to teach a Special 2 day Event on October 26th and October 27th where she will teach us about Living in the Light and having us journey with our newly evolving light body centers. This event is limited to 10 participants and will sell out quickly.  

UPCOMING EVENTS

June 15th from 1 PM to 3 PM – Introduction to Crystals Join me at this Level 1 Introductory Class where we will acquaint you to the crystals and help you learn to identify, choose, and care for them. We will explore the color, shape and composition of the crystal, the science behind crystal energy and why they affect us the way they do.

May 2019 Blog - The Theme is "Awareness"

The theme for May is “AWARENESS”

The theme of Awareness can appear in many different ways. We may become more aware of where we lack as well as where we shine. We can become more aware of how we use our energy, where the boundaries are too strong or too weak, and where we hold ourselves back and where we push too hard towards unattainable expectations. We also have an opportunity to become more aware of others from a place of compassion and neutrality, not needing to jump in and fix, but just to become aware of their process.

Consciousness can be opened and raised, intuition strengthened, and senses heightened.  Waking up to a different awareness of the physical body can at first carry with it some discomfort as you become aware of your body, what it carries and where it needs attention.  Instead of self-judgment or feeling victimized or blaming others, this awareness can help you take responsibility for how to move forward in better care and nurturing of your body.

I am just completing teaching my 3rd class of the Couples Conscious Connecting Circle and am working with the themes of awareness, intimacy and vulnerability. I will be offering this class again (a series of 3 circles for couples) in September/October. 

Speaking of vulnerability, many of you have probably recently heard or seen Brene Brown. Brene describes the word VULNERABILITY in this way: Vulnerability is the courage to show up when you can’t control the outcome.

She is a bit of the hot happening thing lately. But for me Brene Brown has long been a person who has influenced my work. Brene has this wonderful ability to mix humor with hard science. If you have not had a chance yet, I strongly encourage you to view her Netflix special “The Call to Courage”. 

This one is perhaps my favorite Brene quotes “Today I will choose courage over comfort”.

 That is what I am trying to do every day – Choosing Courage over Comfort. As a result of that effort I have a whole host of new offerings upcoming at Rose Healing Center. :-) I encourage you to check them out.

Welcome March and Spring!

VerplanckEaglesWillCook.jpg

Winter is a difficult season for me as I think it is for many of us. One of the “silver linings” of the season is I have the good fortune to live and work in Verplanck/Cortlandt Manor right along the Hudson River. Each year from January to April (or whenever the ice stops flying on the Hudson) we have amazing sightings of the majestic bald eagle. I so adore seeing the photographers at Steamboat Dock just down the street from me. Here is one of the more incredible captures from my friend and fellow Westchester Healing Group practitioner - Will Cook.

These past few weeks of what feels like never-ending Winter here in NY have allowed me to re-focus on reading and I am connecting again with the energy of Brene’ Brown who I adore. For those of you not familiar with her work – Brene’ became famous for a TED talk – “The Power of Vulnerability” I encourage you to watch it.  https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability

 She is the author of several books including the one I am currently reading: “Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transform the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead”

brene-brown-quote.jpg

I find Brene’s style of wrapping hardcore science and research with humor and storytelling to be profound methods for me to understand the concepts she is trying to convey.  The theme she has in all her work is basically that 99% of life is showing up and being our true authentic self.   Often easier said than done!

As I have gone deeper into my work at Rose Healing, I have continued to strengthen my ability to be my true authentic self no matter what circumstances I find myself in and I am profoundly grateful to help others step into their true authentic selves.

In thinking about this, I also found several writers who focus on numerology and the energy around that. March, 2019 brings the energy of the number 3 – it is the 3rd month.  The number 3 is highly expressive. It encourages us to express our truth, speak up, and communicate our needs and desires to ourselves, others, and the world. It represents the harmony and balance that is achieved when we are in alignment.  Staying balanced and paying attention to the messages of your mind, body, and soul. Stay in balance by meditating, checking in with yourself, and remember to recharge whenever you get the chance. We here are Rose Healing are here to help.

For those of you who share my fatigue with this winter some important upcoming dates:

March 10 – Daylight Savings time & – Sound Healing with the Crystal Lyre

March 20 – Spring Equinox

March 30 and March 31st - 2 Day Special Event 3/30 & 3/31 with guest teacher Cheryl Banfield from Maine

February 2019 Blog - Seeking the Light

Welcome Febraury with a Spotlight on Amethyst Crystals and Our Oil is Purification

SuperBowl.png

February has several holiday and events. This weekend is Super bowl Sunday which while not an official holiday, it certainly has evolved into a cultural event here in the US. February 1st marks Groundhog Day, Imbolc (St. Bridget’s Day - Ireland) and Candlemas (Catholic Calendar). Chinese New Year arrives February 5th. Later in the month we also celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Candlemas_ss_574674403-790x400.jpg

Candlemas commemorates the ritual purification of Mary, 40 days after the birth of her son Jesus. This day also marks the ritual presentation of the baby Jesus to God in the Temple at Jerusalem. The festival is called Candlemas because this was the day that all the Church's candles for the year were blessed.

imbolc.jpg

Imbolc is based on a Celtic tradition and is meant to mark the halfway point between winter solstice and the spring equinox. Imbolc is just one of several pre-Christian holidays highlighting some aspect of winter and sunlight, and heralding the change of seasons.

Chinese+New+Year.jpg

Chinese New Year: is the Spring Festival and celebrations last 15 days and often include massive amounts of fireworks!  Preparations include, a huge clean-up (purification) to sweep away any traces of bad luck.  On the eve and day of Chinese New Year there are massive feasts including whole fish to symbolize the abundance of the coming year. Every Chinese New Year there is a new zodiac animal associated with that year.  2019 is the Year of the Pig.

Valentines.png

All of these holidays around the start of February have themes of purification, hibernation, seeking signs of spring, planting seeds (at least in our mind first), return of the light and lengthening of the days.   The larger metaphysical themes are spiritual awakenings, initiations, dedication, inner journeys and honoring the artist within.

Finally later in February we have Valentine’s Day which in our culture has so many double meanings that it can often be a difficult day for those who are not experiencing the relationship they wished they had, while others seem to embrace all things with red hearts.

Amethyst Crytsals

TRUST • INTUITION • SPIRITUALITY

Despite being easily found, this stone has a long history of being associated with luxury.  In the Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui, amethyst is encouraged to be placed in the wealth corner, where it is said to amplify the flow of prosperity into the home.

AmethystApr2018.jpg

Amethyst healing properties are as plentiful as the stone itself. It is thought of mostly as a protective stone. As it is linked to the crown chakra, it is helpful in purifying the mind and clearing it of negative thoughts including stress and anxiety.  Amethyst is especially useful the workplace as it enhances communication, intuition and prosperity.

Using amethyst to decorate the home is a choice many make for its appearance, alone. However, the stone can have many metaphysical benefits as well if placed in the right room. An amethyst in the family room can assist in familial bonding time, and provide the confidence and calm necessary for open communication. Amethyst in the office will bring intuition for making tough, gut decisions in business, and stress-relief for long work days. Placing an amethyst somewhere in the bathroom is another way to relieve anxiety during a soothing bath.

Amethyst is the birthstone for February, (HA! I didn’t know this when I picked this stone for this month!). and known as the Zodiac stone for Pisces. It is also linked to the element of Wind. This element is believed to activate the mind, and assist in clairvoyance and intuition. It is the ideal stone for meditation that seeks to discover the reason for certain behaviors or actions, both on the part of oneself, or another.

We have some pieces of Amethyst available for purchase at Rose Healing.

January 2019 Blog - A New Year with New Offerings

Happy New Year fellow seekers! Wishing us all a safe, healthy, and successful journey in 2019.

A new year is always a time for new energy. So as I seem to suggest often in these blogs, once again this is a perfect time to think about what you wish to manifest in your life.  I like to write down a list of at least 10 things.  When writing be sure to keep it in the positive.  Write what you do want, not what you don’t.  It is a nice idea to tuck this list away somewhere and revisit it in say June, 2019 or next December.

Time seems to be moving faster, at least it feels that way to me lately. There is a message here about slowing down, listening, becoming aware.   The one thing that always helps with this is getting in contact with our breath and meditation. A reminder to begin a practice in 2019 if you do not already have one. Or if you do, to recommit to that practice.

“I know our salvation and that of our planet rests in our ability to feel connected to each other, to ourselves, to nature and to the universal latticework of light and energy that binds us to this plane

As we move to 2019, I am in such deep gratitude for all of you who have entered through the doors of Rose Healing Center and allowed me to be a part of your healing process.   I look forward to offering new and exciting groups and events in 2019 including a Conscious Coupling Connecting Circle (Series of 3 - starting on January 27th limited to 4 couples) and a Prosperity/Abundance seminar tentatively scheduled for March. Much more about these offerings coming very soon.  We will continue to offer Vibrational Sound Healings with the Crystal Harp/Lyre.  January and February dates are already up on our site for the sound baths.  https://rosehealingcenter.com/soundbath/

Wishing you a New Year filled with love, peace, and prosperity.   

December 2018 Blog - The Darkness and the Light

Holiday Message:  As I prepare to celebrate Christmas (which is my tradition) I cannot help but be reminded of the gifts of this past year, where I was fortunate enough to have expanded my practice and my knowledge base via study with incredible teachers including Cheryl Banfield (Sound Healing/Energy Work) and Natalie Kasdan and Anne Samojedny (craniosacral therapy) and Mary Ellen O’Brien (intuitive awareness) to just name a few.  As Rose Healing Center transitions to our 6th year of wellness care, we would like to thank each of you for your kind patronage and support. Being able to share healing energy with all of you, my clients, students and friends is truly one of my most treasured gifts of 2018.  Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Yule, Kwanzaa or whatever you celebrate. 

As I have shared with you in the past, this time of year when the night is long and the days are short can be difficult for me and for others I know.  Over time, I have learned to embrace the energy of the dark which is inviting me to dream, to lay down burdens, and to be aware of what is all around me and within me.   This time of year offers solitude and solace for some and for others it can be an extremely lonely time.   Metaphysically December is a good time to look within, to find the courage to release and let go, to meditate and honor our individual traditions as we prepare for the New Year ahead. The thing I find most helpful during the slower winter months is the knowledge that the light will return. For me grounding and centering occurs through body work. If I can help you ground and center, I am happy to do so.  Please contact me for a session.

There are two different Events being offered in December. One on 12/9/18 at the Lighthouse Retreat and Wellness Center in Croton and one on 12/30/18 at Rose Healing.  Our 12/30 event will focus on setting intention for the New Year.

November 2018 Blog - Celebrating the Harvest and Doing the Holidays differently

Celebrating the Harvest

Welcome November. The month of Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for all that I have received. October was a month of travel for me. I was in Tennessee, North Carolina and Maine as well as my home state of New York.  

CrystalCabinet.jpg
CrystalFlame.jpg

The gifts I have “harvested” from each of these trips are many. I will start with Tennessee where I was able to deeply reconnect with the great outdoors through a visit to the Great Smoky National Park.  In North Carolina, I was able to meet with the amazing crystal wholesale dealers at “Enter the Earth” and have brought home many exciting crystals which I am pleased to offer to the clients, friends and fans of Rose Healing at some very affordable prices just in time for the holidays!

Please note – crystal purchases are available by appointment only.

Finally, I have just returned from an incredible initiation into a healing modality called Love Light which activates the Light Centers of the Light Body.  I am still processing from this event and look forward to sharing more about this in future blogs.

Doing the Holiday Season differently.

One of the themes for November continues to be the letting go and clearing out what no longer serves. As you clear away the old and make conscious proactive choices towards change = what might that look like?

There are many things in life that could use a change. Think about all the structures that you use every day. The most important one being your body as the main vehicle that supports your life. There is also your career, work, family; community; the various extensions of yourself such as your vehicle, computer etc. Finally and perhaps hardest during this holiday season is our schedules and how we use our energy on a daily basis. Perhaps we can consider doing the Holidays differently this year. A little less rush and stress and a little more love and joy.

Realizing this may may require some adjustment and a lot of patience.  Rose Healing Center is here to help.  In addition to our individual treatment sessions, we are offering two incredible sound baths in November and December.

Crystal-LyreOmnivos.jpg

Sound is the link between science and spirituality “No amount of medicine or talking can reach the deepest, darkest places of the human soul. Sound takes you in those places.” Jeralyn Glass

Both the 11/17/18 and the 12/30/18 sound healings will be with the Quartzophone – the Pure Crystal Harp.  This is a deeply transformative experience that I hope you can find the time to join us for.  Advance sign up required.


 The oil for November is Gratitude (of course)

https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/products/gratitude-essential-oil

 

Thanksgiving Message: As I think about the many things I am grateful for this Thanksgiving season, certainly near the top of my list will be the incredible opportunity I have been given to share my healing gifts with all of you through Rose Healing Center. As we enter our 5th year in business, I am deeply appreciative of you - my clients, students, and participants.  I wish you and your families an season of abundance, gratitude and love.

October 2018 Blog - Our Theme "Letting Go" & Our Oil is Cedarwood.

Oh sacred season of autumn be my teacher, for i wish to learn the sacred virtue of contentment                                                                        edward hayes

Oh sacred season of autumn be my teacher, for i wish to learn the sacred virtue of contentment edward hayes

Welcome to October. Historically the time of many festivals including my most favorite Holiday – Halloween.  In the old tradition Halloween was called Samhain – (pronounced saah-ween) a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter.   So in the old traditions, it was a time to honor the harvest and to celebrate ancestors and those who have passed from this lifetime.  Halloween like many holidays marks the passage of time. We may notice that vegetation dies back with the arrival of killing frosts. This maybe where the ancient notion that the veil between the worlds is thinniest around this time.  In other words, some believe this time of year is when it is easiest to communicate with those who have died.

TrickorTreat.jpg

In more current times Halloween is the holiday where children (and others) don masks and costumes and go trick or treating.   I have tried to figure out over the years why I love Halloween so much. I think because even as a child, I knew this holiday speaks to a sense of fantasy, community and generosity.  On what other holiday do we seem to trust our neighbors so deeply – knock on doors, are greeted with a smile and a treat?  On what other day of the year are we encouraged to pretend to be someone else even and engage our imagination for just a few hours?    From memories of the early days of my childhood in the 1960 and 70’s going door to door with my father and sister to trick or treat, to later going with gangs of friends, or college parties filled with crazy costumes, to adulthood when my husband and I so loved decorating our house and yard and we became the ones answering the door and giving out the treats, this Holiday has always made me happy. 

In October nature begins to show us the cycle of death and rebirth through her amazing display of colors on our trees. It is a time of great transition where the light wanes and the temperatures drop. October is a time for clearing away the old unnecessary things or habits that no longer serve us.  It is a time when we honor those who have died and the gifts they brought us when they were here on earth.  For our ancestors, it was a serious time of setting intention that winter will come and go with the least negative effects.

Our bodies can be challenged this month as it tries to assimilate all the changes in frequency hitting our planet. It will take some discipline and a great deal of compassion and patience and you can begin by looking at how you support your physical body and what you can do to increase that support. Rose Healing is here to help with this.

Some other ideas for how you can honor this Autumn:  Take a meditative walk in nature observing the beauty of the colored leaves. Experience the cycle of death and rebirth as nature shows it to us.   Visit a cemetery where some of your ancestors lie in their final resting place.  Maybe carve a pumpkin, bake an apple pie or don a costume and embrace the energy of October.  Since it is also a time of letting go, consider going through your closets and giving away that which you no longer need or use.  This exercise of clearing away things from our household also encourages a “clearing away” on other levels.

This is a time of year for contemplation.  A time to recalibrate. The themes continue about letting go and clearing what no longer serves us.  Explore your daily life.  Think about what works, what doesn’t.  Be creative, try something new.

Our oil of the month is Cedarwood.

CedarwoodFAllBlends.jpg

Cedarwood has an earthy aroma that is soothing and grounding. It has been used for centuries by the Eqyptians and Tibetans.  It is mentioned over 40 times in the Bible. Cedarwood is a great oil to help us feel connected, grounded and comforted.  This oil eases nervous tension, calms anger and relieves stress.  It can help us embrace the feelings of safety and security. 

How to use Cedarwood: Apply to 2-4 drops on neck, hands, feet,  Directly inhale or diffuse.

September 2018 Blog with Spotlight on Craniosacral Therapy and Interconnectedness

 Our Oil of the Month is Ylang Ylang.

spiderweb_1050x700.jpg

In the last few weeks I keep running into spider webs.  For the past week, each day I open our front door and step onto our porch, a giant spider web has been built across our opening.  This has happened like 6 days in a row!  I think the spider is trying to tell me something.   So I looked up the metaphysical meaning of spider webs. 

A quick search brought me this information:

The spider is an ancient symbol of mystery, power and growth. We take our first lesson from the ancient symbol of the spider by contemplating its web. Just as the spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. Not only do spiders and their webs draw attention to our life choices, they also give us an overview of how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live.

Whoa. Powerful stuff. That last line really resonates for me particularly the part about how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live. For those of you who have known me a while, you will know that the spider has long been trying to get my attention.  I think I am finally in the place where I am ready to listen.

The message the spider brings not only to me but to all of us is about the interconnectedness of all things.  Some world religions including Buddhism view that everything in the world is interconnected. When Buddha gained enlightenment, it was the realization that we are all interconnected and that love is the true nature of all beings. We are not only connected to other people, but to the air through our breathing and to the universe through light.

How aware are you that the choices you make on a daily basis construct your life?  Do you choose health? Love? Peace?  I am choosing more wisely every day with new awareness thanks to the spider!

Craniosacral Therapy 

In September, I will be completing my 5th level training in Craniosacral therapy with the amazing teachers Natalie Kasdan and Anne Samojedny.  Of all the holistic modalities I have been trained in, craniosacral speaks to me the most.  So a little about this modality is below. re much more available on my website.

CranioSacralOcci.jpg

Craniosacral Balancing Therapy:  is a holistic healing practice that uses delicate  touch to assist the body’s natural healing ability. Following the rhythmical flow of the cerebral spinal fluid, the practitioner detects and assists the release of restrictions. Gentle touch on the head, sacrum, and other areas of the body can induce deep relaxation, improve chronic conditions, and release emotional blocks and tension as the body’s inherent vitality is restored. More information is available on my website.  If you have not had the chance to experience this modality, I would love to show it to you.

Our Oil of the Month is Ylang Ylang 

Ylang Ylang oil is steam distilled from the flowers of the tree. And means “flower of flower”  It has been used customarily for promoting healthy hair and balancing emotions. Some report that Ylang Ylang  has helped control hypertension. Ylang Ylang is one of the most important oils to be discerning about the quality of the oil you purchase if you want the best results possible.  It has sweet and floral aroma that is very calming and relaxing. It expands the heart chakra.    Buy YLANG YLANG:  

What is the Spiritual Influence? Ylang Ylang Oil has been used to balance male and female energies so one can achieve a state of harmony.It accomplishes this by releasing negative emotions such as anger, possessiveness or low self-esteem. And nourishing the positive emotions such as confidence, self love and spiritual awareness. Ylang Ylang oil also helps those who are physically or spiritually drained. It brings the body, mind and spirit back into alignment.

How do I use it?  Use NEAT (undiluted). Apply several drops (2-4) directly to chakras or feet. Directly inhale or Diffuse.

August 2018 Blog with Spotlight on Energetic Influences

Our theme for August is Energetic Influences and Clarity 

Balloon Flowers by Rene Pastolove

Balloon Flowers by Rene Pastolove

The more experience I have with being in touch with energy, the more aware I have become of certain larger energetic influences on myself and my clients.  I have always followed astrology –not every day, but certainly monthly and I have always been deeply curious about the sun, moon and stars and their influence on us.

Intuitively it makes sense if the sun and the moon can have such deep impacts on our oceans, imagine the impacts it can have on our bodies.  According to H.H. Mitchell of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.    So of course, we have to feel it on some level – if we are in touch with it.

The past few weeks has certainly made me research a bit more about what is going on because in addition to what I have been experiencing, so many of my friends, fellow healers and clients are experiencing agitation, confusion and deep shifts.  Certainly I have known for over a decade that the times of Mercury Retrograde have an impact on me and those around me.  For those who are not familiar with retrogrades, they're periods of time when a planet appears to be moving in reverse. While that backward movement is just an optical illusion, it carries major astrological implications. 

MercuryRetroImage.jpg

The summer of 2018 has a total of SIX planets in retrograde. All at one time.  With so many planets in retrograde it is a deep reminder to slow down and act more thoughtfully.  Think before your leap. All retrogrades are a time to go within and allow us rest, restore, and to replenish. 

Each planet  has its own power and influence but the retrograde in August in the planet of Uranus (the planet of immense change) reminds us that before we can see the change in the world we seek, we must first seek change in ourselves.  

My father used to use the quote “physician heal thyself” and that feels in alignment with the message of Uranus in retrograde. All of us are on a journey and all of us are being asked to examine our stuff.  The good news is we can do that examination outside in nature.  August is still summer and we are being encouraged to go outside and listen.

One of my favorite astrologists, Pamela Cucinell of Insight Oasis has this quote which really resonated with me:

As we find ourselves in a summer of change, what direction will we take? Directions chosen at this time have a long reach. These eclipses set the mood for autumn and beyond. If you don’t want to be eclipsed, then look to the light. A Lunar Eclipse reminds us that in order to truly evaluate the light, we have to be willing to walk in the darkness and see what is there.

July 2018 Blog with Spotlight on Clear Crystal Quartz

Our theme for July is “Independence and Abundance” and our Spotlight is on “Clear Quartz Crystal”.

"Independence is happiness"       Susan B. Anthony 

"Independence is happiness"       Susan B. Anthony 

The theme of “Independence” is timely because on July 4th we celebrate American Independence day.   There is so much we can sometimes take for granted living in this great and complicated USA.  Sometimes in my angst over the news I can forget how very fortunate I am to be in land of the free and the home of the brave.  This got me to thinking about my own "independence". 

What does it mean to be personally independent? A true feeling of independence starts with an energy that fuels the human spirit.   But here is what I quickly conclude that a sense of independence is also recognizing that freedom is a state of mind.  Of course it help to have that “state of mind” in the USA (for those of us who are fortunate enough to live here).  Independence also means having a sense of connection, gratitude, awareness, self-reliance, dominion and safety.   So the ironic thing is to be "personally independent" we need healthy connections to others. Ha! Interesting.  So being personally independent means having: 

  • Connection – fostering healthy relationships (spouse, family, friends)
  • Gratitude – deep appreciation for all that you have
  • Awareness – being awake to the moment
  • Self-Reliance – knowing you can do it
  • Dominion – owning your personal space
  • Safety/Home – no matter where you are “home” is within

Personal independence is something that no one can ever take from you, because it has nothing to do with external stuff. Your personal power is where you reign.

 Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune in to”
— Wayne Dwyer

This quote by Wayne Dyer (1940-2015) really touches a nerve in me.  Maybe abundance is not something we have to “get” maybe we have always had”.  Hmmm…thought provoking.  I recently started reading the “The Abundance Project Book” by Derek Rydell and found some of his thoughts helpful. 

My friend Kacey Morabito Grean recently interviewed the author Derek Rydell on her radio show/podcast and that is what inspired me to get the book.  You can listen to the Podcast here. You can click on image to the right to be taken to Amazon to purchase a copy of the book.

SPOTLIGHT ON CRYSTALS – CLEAR CRYSTAL QUARTZ

Clear quartz is the most iconic of the quartz family. One of the most abundant minerals in the world, clear quartz is found on every continent. For this reason, quartz is tied to many ancient cultures from around the world. The term “quartz” comes from the Greek word for “ice”.  For Crystal Healing therapy Clear Quartz is considered the “master healer”.

Quartz has a hardness score of 7. That makes it extremely durable, and apt for a wide range of uses especially in our electronics driven world. Quartz is in our cell phones, computers and more. The hexagonal structured system of the crystal is made up of silicon dioxide. Just as the human body is comprised of silicon dioxide, the earth’s crust consists of 12% silicon dioxide. Many believe that this similarity in cellular composition accounts for the interactive communication between gemstones like quartz and the human body. 

A scientist at IBM, Marcel Vogel, has studied the connection between human emotion and the molecular structure of crystals. He believed that the crystal’s cellular formation was susceptible to change depending on what he was thinking at the time. According to Vogel, the crystal reacts to your “program” and mirrors it in its own composition. 

ClearQuartzCrystal.jpg

Quartz is an amplifier. It can be programmed to manifest intentions. To program the quartz with your intentions, hold it in the palm of your hand, and focus on what you want to transfer into the crystal. The crystal’s memory will download your intentions, and help to manifest those goals through its ability to amplify in the same way it does in technological devices. However, quartz healing properties will amplify any energy surrounding or being put into it, so making sure to occasionally cleanse the stone is important in order to maintain a positive energy. 

 

You can cleanse you Quartz by running it under water, placing it in the moonlight, or on a bed of Himalayan salt. 

Quartz can help open up the mind and elevate negative perspectives to more enlightened point of view. Its metaphysical purposes are vast, from helping to expand consciousness to facilitating open communication and stimulating the chakras. For those needing clarity of mind, clear quartz healing properties will eliminate energy blockages and allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the body. 

We are happy to offer a lovely selection of reasonably priced pure Quartz crystal points at Rose Healing.  Store hours are by appointment only. Please contact Rosemary if you would like to stop by our crystal shop.

June 2018 Blog with Spotlight on Sound Healing with Crystal Pyramid

Our theme for June is “Courage & Change” and our Spotlight is on “Sound Healing with the Crystal Pyramid”.

The theme for June is courage and change. How do you take yourself out of your comfort zone?  It is so critical to continue to learn something new, do something different, even if that just means driving a different way to work in the morning.  I need to be reminded of this as well as I can often get stuck in routine. 

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow”. ~Mary Anne Radmacher
This is how I felt, not how I looked :-) 

This is how I felt, not how I looked :-) 

The quote of this month is really powerful for me.  I have been pushing through my fears and doing new things that help me move my body. I hate the word exercise so I am not using it in that sentence.  In March, I began attending Kundalini Yoga classes at Devotion Yoga in Montrose (near the Cortlandt Train Station).   The owner Barbara Burns (aka Pritam Bani Kaur) has been such an incredible teacher for me.

This past month she invited her friend, and fellow Kundalini teacher Reyna to come and teach a belly dancing class. Well I can tell you it was an incredible experience to attend this class.  For those of you that know me you know I am a large curvy woman so going to “belly dancing” was no small achievement!  I had to really to push past my fears.  I was happy I went.  It was so healing to move my hips (I have a double hip replacement) in such a way that made me feel present in my body.  I highly recommend you check out Devotion Yoga The next Belly Dancing class is June 9th from Noon to 2 PM. I hope to see you there.

This month  I am co-teaching with my friend and Master Crystal Healer – Betty Sue Hanson a special event called “Crystal Healing Intensive” on Saturday 6/16/18 at 1 PM at Devotion Yoga. This is a very unique opportunity and at a very affordable $75.  More information and sign up here.

Sound Healing with the Crystal Singing Pyramid

Many of you who visited Rose Healing know that I include sound healing in my individual sessions and events.  It is always customized to the individual and the energy of the day. It can be drums, crystal bowls, rattles or bells.  One of the most powerful tools I have been trained in has been the “Crystal Singing Pyramid”.   This is played over the body during an individual healing session. The following is from my instructors at Sage Academy of Sound

CrystalPyramid.jpg

"The pyramid form is a statement of perfection and balance.  It is one of the highest geometrical shapes found on the physical plane.  It represents conscious connection with the infinite source, and and physical stability at the base.  They are symbolic of the ultimate balance that each soul must achieve to complete its evolutionary process." I utilize this energy in sessions by reminding clients that we have to remember to be connected and grounded to the earth and open to the heavens.  "As above, so below". 

The sound of a crystal singing pyramid being played over the body induces deep cellular healing within the meditation state. Crystal vibrations reduce stress, reconnects us to our higher spirit, massages the body, and also helps to restore balance, and align our mind-heart-cosmic connection.  If you would like to experience the crystal singing pyramid, please contact me.

The Oil of the Month is VALOR

Valor Essential Oil balances the spiritual, physical, mental and emotional energies of the body when applied to shoulders and/and feet;  When we have more courage to take on new things and/or change, we are better able to release old patterns that are not working for us.

Valor's smell is very soothing and calming and is great inhaled after a long stressful day.  When the body, mind and spirit are aligned, we are able to open and release emotional barriers that are keeping us stuck. This oil allows us to have the courage and self-esteem to overcome those things that are holding us back. Remember, when we are stressed or worried we are creating imbalance in our bodies on all levels.

How do I Use Valor Oil?

Use NEAT (undiluted) then, Apply several drops (2-4) to wrists, chest, base of neck, bottom of feet or add several drops (2-4) to bath water or   Directly inhale, diffuse.

May 2018 Blog with Spotlight on Crystals

Our theme for May 2018 is "Nurture" and our Spotlight is on Healing Crystals

Quote for the Month: Walking slowly in the moonlight in a row of tea plants, I realized my mother was still with me. – Thich Nhat Hanh

MayFlowers.jpg

Welcome May. While it has taken a while, spring seems to have finally arrived.  You can see it in the blooming trees and sprouting leaves.  May is also the month we celebrate Mother’s day and all the incredible women in our lives.

So our theme for May is “Nurture”.   Particularly self – nurturing.   So how do you allow yourself time for self-care?  If you are a mother of young children do you believe that it is even in your realm of possibility?  We each need to give ourselves permission for rest, relaxation and self-care.  There is that old saying on the plane, please place your own oxygen mask on before attempting to help others. 

Another aspect of being a nurturing person is possibly also being called an empathetic person or an “empath”.  Empaths’ seem to be getting more and more attention these days as people who “feel too much”. 

“Empathy” definition from Wikipedia: Empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within their frame of reference, i.e., the capacity to place oneself in another's position.  There are many definitions for empathy that encompass a broad range of emotional states. Types of empathy include cognitive empathy, emotional empathy, and somatic empathy.

AmethystApr2018.jpg

If you think you a person who feels “too much” and might be picking up on other people’s energy, then you might want to consider these few steps to self-care:

  • Establish a daily practice that you do for yourself.  A daily prayer, meditation, walk in nature or whatever feeds your soul and helps you be connected to you and spirit.
  • Learn to say “NO”.  No is a complete sentence. It does not require any further explanation. You can add “NO, thank you.” If it makes you feel better.
  • Have regular body work.  Massage, Reflexology, CranioSacral, etc.
  • Consider incorporating or learning about how crystals can help ground and protect you.

March 2018 Blog & Oil of the Month

BlueMoon.jpg

We begin March with a Full Moon called the “Full Worm Moon” by Native Americans because this is the time of year when worm castings are now visible above ground and attract our friends the robins who build their nests with them.  This is surely a sign of spring!

This month also brings us another blue moon – meaning a month with 2 full moons in it. The last time we had a blue moon was in January 2018.   

Quote: Never forget that change is a positive force that is generally for the better, and that life is a performance for which none of us are given the opportunity to rehearse. ~Sally Brompton

I am surprised when some people have no awareness of where we are in the cycle of the Moon.  In my mind, it is essential we stay aware of the cycles of the natural world.   Lunar cycles deeply affect Earth’s weather patterns and therefore also directly affect us and our energy.

March 18th Event:  Sound Healing with Crystal Bowls

Photo by Ed Frampton 

The theme for March is spring (which arrives 3/20 at 12:15 PM) but also the energetic theme is a reminder to take a “time out”.   In our busy world with computers, cell phones, instant messaging, social media, etc. we are being bombarded daily with “instant” response needed energy.  But when we really explore that “instant response needed” question, I guess we have to ask ourselves the old Byron Katie question – “Is that really true?”

March is energetically inviting us to take some time for self-reflection and awareness.  To do this properly we truly need a time out. For many of us that means letting go of the cell phone which is almost constantly in our hands.  I know many of you are already questioning if you can do that.  But there are ways to manage this.  It takes discipline and self-respect to let go of the phone and the instant response world – even for just a ½ hour.  Start small. But give yourself the gift of time. March is inviting us to listen. 

From a numerology perspective, this month has themes of introspection, freedom of expression, the physical body, sex, fertility, and commitment.    There is emphasis on how we waste our time and how easily we can be distracted from what really matters.

This is a highly creative energetic time – but is also erratic and unpredictable. Be aware that planning – not doing – is the main theme of this introspective month. If we don't take time to listen to that inner voice - how will we ever hear what it is trying to tell us?

As always we here at Rose Healing Center stand ready to help you become more centered, grounded, peaceful and healthy this spring. Our practitioners, Dr. Pam Charles,  Betty Sue Hanson,  Rocio LaRosa, and myself are ready to help.  

Oil of the Month for March:  LEMON

LemonImage.jpg

Lemon is very cleansing and supports a healthy circulatory system. Lemon oil is a wonderful as a household cleaning agent.    It takes 75 lemons to make on 15 ml bottle of lemon oil. From a spiritual perspective, lemon is cleansing to the mind and spirit, it helps release patterning and opens the throat and heart centers.

February 2018 Blog & Oil of the Month

Full Cold Moon-M.jpg

Ever since I was a child I have been enthralled by the night sky and the moon.  I love to gaze up and dream.   I find it incredibly powerful.  That is how I view February – incredibly powerful.  On January 31st we will experience a very unique Full Moon whose energy will carry over into February.

moon-blue-greg-hogan-7-31-2015-sq-e1438543549777.jpg

January 31st's Full Moon is a triple event. It is a Super Moon, a Blue Moon and an Eclipse! The Moon won't look blue, however. Researchers are predicting a bright orange eclipse--a forecast based on studies of recent volcanic activity.  This is referred to as a "Blood Moon".  A Blue Moon is when there are 2 full moons in a single month.  A supermoon is what happens when the moon is closest to Earth’s orbit and appears larger in the sky.  

From an energetic perspective, there is perhaps never a better time to focus on change than now, at least astrologically speaking.   Eclipses open portals of intensity and support for change.  Choices and decisions made during this time will carry a lot of weight into the future and any work you do in changing your patterns will be greatly empowered.  We are in a time where the habits that have run our lives are being questioned (or should be) and we are being prompted to look ahead to the kind of life we wish to create. If change is necessary, plant those seeds now with this powerful New Moon.  

This is our 2nd Blue moon already in a single year, a somewhat rare event – it will be another 19 years (or the year 2037) before it happens again.  Awesome!

Know exactly what your goals are and make a plan of action to get there. Don’t back down. This is a card of confidence and decisiveness.   Get out of your own way.  Be receptive to divine guidance. Spend at least a portion – even 3 to 5 minutes – of your day in meditation.

It is so easy to get sidetracked by our day to day lives and forget our goals.  This is a time to ask for help from the divine.  You are not here to please everyone.  You are here to follow your will.  Stand in your power. 


January 2018 Blog & Oil of the Month

January2018.jpg

Welcome 2018!

January gets its name from the Latin translation of Januarius named after JANUS – the God of beginnings.    Many take the first few moments and days of any New Year to re-evaluate and set intentions or resolutions for the year ahead.  I seem to be constantly refining my intentions. I have come to enjoy different practices including creating intentions monthly at the New Moon which is a lovely way to remember that we are co-creating with the Divine each month.   A daily practice of meditation has also greatly helped me to stay centered in an ever-changing world.

As we say goodbye to the tumultuous 2017, we hold intention for a calmer, more peaceful 2018.  Take some time to really think about what you want to manifest in 2018 and jot down a few themes.  Tuck it away to allow yourself to revisit perhaps mid-year or next December.  It can be powerful to review exactly what we were thinking 6 months or a year ago.

We here at Rose Healing Center stand ready to help you become more centered, grounded, peaceful and healthy in new New Year  Our practitioners, Dr. Pam Charles,  Betty Sue Hanson,  Rocio LaRosa, Mary Ellen O’Brien, and myself are ready to help.

December 2017 Blog and Oil of the Month

First my apologies for the lateness of this blog piece as I was away for a few days.   This edition marks one year since I started doing the monthly blog piece, interesting that this final one is a few days late. ;-)

December used to be the 10th month which is why it is named December.   There are many holiday traditions celebrated around the world in this month.

HAppy-Holidays-Safeguard.png

Holiday Message:  As I prepare to celebrate Christmas (which is my tradition) I cannot help but be reminded of the gifts of this past year, where I was fortunate enough to have undergone a miraculous healing through a hip replacement and recovery, been awarded the opportunity to study with amazing professionals like Bessel Van del Kolk on Trauma, Sound Healing with Lia and Phillipe Garnier, Craniosacral Therapy with Natalie Kasdan and Anne Samojedny to just name a few.  But perhaps my biggest gift which I experienced in 2017 was being able to share healing energy with all of you my clients, students and friends.  Thank you for allowing me to work with you. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Yule, Kwanzaa or whatever you celebrate. 

As I have shared with you in the past, this time of year when the night is long and the days are short can be difficult for me and for others I know.  Over time, I have learned to embrace the energy of the dark which is inviting me to dream, to put down burdens, and to be aware of what is all around me and within me.   This time of year offers solitude and solace for some and for others it can be an extremely lonely time.   We each are invited to become aware on a deeper level of what the season meaning is to us.  Be aware that there are those who simply need to be seen and acknowledged now. Metaphysically December is a good time to look within, to meditate and honor our individual traditions as we prepare for the New Year ahead.

The frenetic energy of 2017 will certainly continue.  I was briefly away for 5 days – and somewhat removed from news and social media during that time.  During just those 5 days, there was so much major news being released that I had trouble returning to the “reality” of life and catching up.   I doubt this will slow down in 2018.  So let us continue to be reminded to find ways to return to our center and ground.  For me that occurs through body work. If I can help you ground and center, I am happy to do so.  Please contact me for a session.

November 2017 Blog & Oil/Card of the Month

November is taken from the Latin “Noven” meaning 9.  In earlier calendars November was the 9th month, not the 11th.  November brings with it Thanksgiving in the U.S. and in many parts of the world there are festivals of gratitude for earth’s bounty as well as commemorative rights for the dead and rituals that protect individuals or whole communities from evil influences.

Thanksgiving Message: As I think about the many things I am grateful for this Thanksgiving season, certainly near the top of my list will be the incredible opportunity I have been given to share my healing gifts with all of you through Rose Healing Center. Thank you to my clients, students, and participants.  I wish you and your families an season of abundance, gratitude and love.

HappyThanksgiving.jpg

This is the time of year for grieving, forgiveness, gratitude and completion.  One of the most important ways we come to completion is through grieving those who have died and celebrating the things we shared together. In your meditation and prayer practice in the month ahead consider including forgiveness to the self and others. Forgiveness helps to set us free, claim our wisdom and move on.

November for me personally, is one of the more difficult months as the days grow shorter and the temperatures colder, my body and mind argue for more self care.  Over the years, I have learned to listen (particularly in November) so that the winter ahead will be smooth.

I share that with all of you, my dear readers, so YOU too can be reminded that in all the rush to prepare for the “holidaze” ahead you remember to put yourself on the list and allow yourself some restorative time as well.


The card of the Month is from Archangel Raphael Deck*  Note: *November is a month sacred to Archangel Raphael

archangel-raphael-oracle-bodymessage.jpg

Your body is speaking and wants to be heard. You drew this card as a reminder to ask the body part in question, “What do you want me to know?” After asking this question, listen to the intuitive thoughts, feelings and visions that occur.  If you listen and follow its guidance, health will be restored.  But if you disregard the body’s message, it will speak increasingly louder in the form of pain  or other dis-ease (similar to a child having a tantrum to get attention).

 Possible Specific Meanings: Say “I love you!” to your body daily • Talk honestly with your body about your fears, desires, and feelings • Honor your body by treating and feeding it with reverence  Speak about your body in positive, optimistic terms

Prayer: Please help me hear your messages.  Archangel Raphael, please guide me in honoring and respecting my body’s needs.
