"...That is the gift we offer the world - not a gift of talent, or even of hard work, but of our own uniqueness. It’s not easy. Even if we fail, it is a worthy struggle. Even if we fail, it is better than getting good at something someone else did first." ~ Heron Dance

I had a thought this morning ... and it made me laugh ... and then it made me think and wonder and then ... I may be on to something. :)

I give people ideas.

Swear to goodness gracious ... in more ways than one ... and isn't that what a muse is around for?

So now I have something else to think about and pursue ... 'i.m.muse' bubbled up into my consciousness sometime in December [being an energy muse and i do seem to amuse people ;] and this morning while washing my hair [what IS it about water? some of my best ideas come in the shower or when i am washing dishes by hand!] some things began to bubble up. So. Cool. ... no I am not spilling beans at the moment because I am not sure it's reallycool.

But, there you are ... working on that gift I offer the world.

Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart,
and that depends upon how much he has polished it.
Whoever has polished it more sees more - more unseen forms become manifest to him. ~ Rumi


So this is what the practice of meditation and reiki means to my world. The more I do the clearer things become ... the more veils are lifted. The more veils that are lifted the less I find to worry about. The less I find to worry about, the more peaceful and centered I am. The more peaceful and centered I am ... the more peaceful and centered those around me are ... and so on and so on and so on ...

It is not to say that one must polish one's heart ... but that if one does more is reveled in the form of personal and universal collective understanding.

And now thinking about it ... I can 'see' that we are born with the shine and polished heart but that time and the toll of life's experiences tarnishes things. Some like that patina and this is wonderful [it looks beautiful on them], while others seek to have the shine back or ... in my case, are pleasantly surprised to see it having forgotten how brilliant it was in the first place. :)

Hm. Just some thoughts on a Sunday evening ...

Well, staring at this blank page tells you ... yeah, restless. Restless, antsy and feeling a lack of focus. There has been lots of talk regarding the astrological trend at the moment, this being of one of waiting for the shoes to drop and of filling up to the brim while waiting for release.

The release is on it's way starting the end of February, so I am told, but really kicking in in March and April. Big things afoot.

I feel the filling up but I do not feel ready for the release ... i find myself wanting the questions answered before I even know what they are. Anxious much?? ... and this has been showing in my sleep or restless lack thereof.

I woke before my alarm this morning with a start and while I wanted to go back to sleep was moved along to meditate and make an essence formula stat. So, with pendulum and book and a simple wish to help me thru this cycle with the best chance of learning the lesson, I was given this:

Bach: Impatiens
Pegasus: Granite
Alaskan: Tundra Rose, White Spruce, Polar Ice [environmental] and Orange Calcite [gem]

and it wanted Coral [Pegasus] as well which i do not have, so I asked if I could wear coral instead and received and enthusiastic 'yes'.
*[P.S. I use the pendulum mostly for myself when choosing essences due to a lack of objectivity. [The ultimate in nepotism!] Whenever I feel too involved with someone I will turn to the pendulum for universal clarity]*

The breakdown of these follows ...

~ Red Coral: "Can stimulate the metabolism that can create emotional balance with ability to better express what one wants to accomplish." [] ... a Libra vibration! Balance! and we are talking root chakra big time ... "Helps one to be in harmony with the natural forces of the universe and with the wilderness, aligns one with the source of all wisdom. It opens and activates the Base/Root Chakra, stimulating the energetic pursuits. It can be used for protection against depression and despondency." [raven crystals]

~ Granite: Heightens regenerative properties. Yin/Yang/subtle body balancing by alignment of spinal column.

~ Polar Ice: "An essence of transition and the completion of cycles; for achieving a more patient understanding of the subtleties of time; helps us stay present in a place of pure waiting, with no anticipation of what it to come." [alaskan essences]

~ Orange Calcite: "Amplifies the body's ability to assimilate light at the cellular level; uplifting, energizing and warming; dispels darkness and grief."

~ Tundra Rose:"Restores hope, courage and inspiration to those who have much to offer but are close to giving up ..."

~ White Spruce:"Grounds spiritual wisdom into the body; helps us bring logic, intuition and emotion together into unified action in the present moment."

~ Impatiens: For exactly what you would think ... impatience! and the frustration and irritability associated with it.

A formula for restlessness while in a holding pattern and the antsy-ness plus despondency associated with it. To bring alignment, balance, and calming as well metabolic stimulation during a [this!] cycle of waiting.

Finding a Piece of the Truth

One day Mara, the Evil One, was traveling through the villages of India with his attendants. he saw a man doing walking meditation whose face was lit up on wonder. The man had just discovered something on the ground in front of him. Mara’s attendant asked what that was and Mara replied, "A piece of truth."

"Doesn’t this bother you when someone finds a piece of truth, O Evil One?" his attendant asked. "No," Mara replied. "Right after this, they usually make a belief out of it."

Zen Garden #2 []


One day while walking through the wilderness a man stumbled upon a vicious tiger. He ran but soon came to the edge of a high cliff. Desperate to save himself, he climbed down a vine and dangled over the fatal precipice.

As he hung there, two mice appeared from a hole in the cliff and began gnawing on the vine.

Suddenly, he noticed on the vine a plump wild strawberry. He plucked it and popped it in his mouth. It was incredibly delicious!

sit with these for a little bit ... don't strain and just flow with the ideas ... i'll be back later .

Stay in Touch. Namaste. Gayle

for you

"Everything happens for me, not to me." ~ Byron Katie

This just gave me deep pause. Anger. Then a sense of letting in, not go ... of allowing. Wow. I have nothing more to say about it ...

I'm participating in the Chopra Center's 21 Day Meditation Challenge. Day 2. Even though I have been meditating for many years now, it's nice to have the refresher AND I am adding my reiju study to it immediately after.

I was asked today if I am teaching yet. Funny. I always feel as if I am teaching! But no. No formal attunements at the moment. I 'need' to experience it deeply first but it will be within the next month. :) I'm enjoying the process and finding how seamlessly it fits in after simple "Three Part Breath' pranayama. It's opening me to the awareness of a teaching idea and method ... nice.

Hoping everyone is well. Sat at the feet of a client while he had dental work this morning. Balancing and sensing and helping him through a root canal. He just went off to work and 'guesses' it helped him a lot. :) Sweet. Knowing his energy as well as I do I could sense the lightness. Very Nice.

I have a millions ideas whizzing around me today. But first, I am hungry! Reiki ALWAYS makes me so hungry! LOL!

Stay In Touch! Namaste ... Gayle

"In Kundalini Yoga practice there is acceptance and opening, not denial or rejection. As the higher centers open, the devotion one feels, the deep inner longing, are for the ever increasing experience of purity, lightness and Truth that begins to permeate them, versus images of devotion that often trap devotees into an imaged concept of God.

Shakti becomes Bhakti, and Bhakti becomes Gyan (Jnana), a realization of inner Wisdom and Self Knowledge that is beyond thought and conjecture, beyond endless intellectual discourse and argument, into which many other practices degenerate. The power of the discriminative mind emerges, a Force of Intelligence permeates and rivets the body and mind to the Spirit, and the pure mind inverts and reflects the True Self in the Heart. The ancient Sages and Yogis call this the Enlightenment of the Whole Body." ~ Understanding of the Active/Passive Aspect of Kundalini Yoga Practice: By Pieter Schoonheim Samara [via]

A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more than you love me?
Beloved replied, I have died to myself and I live for you.
... I've disappeared from myself and my attributes,
I am present only for you.
I've forgotten all my learnings, but from knowing you I've become a scholar.
I've lost all my strength, but from your power I am able.
I love myself...I love you.
I love you...I love myself. ~ Rumi

And so this is how I feel and approach many in this and my world ... there are slightly different leanings toward different people ... but all in all ... I Love and I surrender myself to you and in that release I not only see/find you but I see/find my Self ...

The revelation is not to become lost or to capitulate, but to wander and marvel at the beauty One sees in the Other and know that it is reflected in the Self.

Sometimes I find my Self entwined and mixed in special blends with the others in my life [sometimes. yeah right. ok. pretty much all the time!] ... especially the Beloveds, the ones I hold most dear and treasured. The ones I am truly blessed to have with me on this life's journey.
Rumi shows the exquisite circle that love spins in us ... with the surrender of ourselves we become so much more in the release. We can become each other. Beautiful

Stay in Touch! Namaste

"I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet." ~ Gandhi

What a brilliant thing ... I have been awakened to the simple and possibly un-elegant ways of not taking 'on' the energies and emotions and otherness of people and things around me [so much. let's face it ... i'll slip. but will you remind me? ;].

One was imparted to me by The Divine Sweetness that is Sarah and it involves a 'vomit bucket' ... when there is dumping and spewing and unloading going on from one or many ... place the bucket in front of them, smooth back their hair and just let them spew! ... clean and rinse and replace bucket as necessary.

See? Un-elegant but it works :) This I can do!

The second one came as i read and responded to the Gandhi quote ... not only do not not allow dirty feet in your mind ... but insist they take thier shoes off as well before entering. There will be no stomping around. Put on soft slippers, and better yet, SIT!! and be still with me or I will have to ask you to leave [my mind] ...

Ah yes ...

Being a mother, after all [shush up!;] the nurturing ideal comes more easily to me than all the orbs and globes and boxes ... [no offense to those that these things do work for. after all, we all have to find what works in supreme vibration to our own selves be true ... :-*] Well, and let's face it, while I'm at it ... I am genetically engineered as 'caretaker' and 'nurturer' and to provide soft-blanket-body/soul/mind-comfort ... so ... might as well run with it, I am deciding.

Turning an old leaf into what looks mighty new as well and going renegade and rogue. Being undeniably myself and while it might not look professional I AM. :)

Peace to you all for a comfortable New Year with Bliss and Happiness and Health and whatever else brings you to the knees of Rowdy Bliss.

Stay in Touch! Namaste ... Gayle

AB: "The world we see is entirely the result of our own perception." ~ Clare Wilde

Gayle Ellison-Davis: so everyone lives in an alternate universe? [;]

AB: maybe we do. ;)

NB: Lovely. Q, for you all. Since we have paralleled lives, does this mean if one is lost our strength assists them and vice versa? Could this be why at times we feel unusual for no reason?

Gayle Ellison-Davis: Wonderful! and ... Absolutely! It's like the moment in Star Wars when Obi Wan feels the death of a planet ... the totality of the rift in the 'Force'.

Imagine a large cloth ... every fiber in that cloth intertwining to make it one, as our parallel selves. If one fiber were to break, it weakens the whole cloth ... but I do imagine that the other fibers reach out to 'mend' the weave to keep it whole ... darning the space and including the break back into the fiber of the cloth ... ♥
