Deep cleaning is not just for spring

“Deep cleaning is not just for spring.” – Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa

Deep cleaning requires slow and methodical work, moving steadily from one room to another.  When we slow our body and mind down, we give ourselves a chance to “deep clean” our body and mind.  Slowing down, sometimes through relaxation, is not always blissful.  When we slow down, old fears, anger and negative emotions can be brought up to the surface.  This is ok.  It gives us a chance to clean them away or release them.  There are so many techniques available to us in the 21st century that can be used to deep clean our body and mind.  Personally I use a daily Kundalini Yoga practice, journaling and regular self-Reiki to slow down and raise my vibration.

What happens when we allow this deep clean to happen?  With every deep clean, sometimes it looks worse before it looks better.  Then we begin to feel like we have more energy.  We feel more compassion for ourselves and what we’ve been through.  Past triggers no longer affect us. We raise our vibration and vibrate the Cosmos.  As we vibrate the Cosmos, the Cosmos clears the path to greater joy, peace and love.

Deep cleaning or slowing down requires patience, compassion, good boundaries and discernment.  Like any deep cleaning, it is always worth it.

Making choices is a balancing act.

Making choices is a balancing act. We’re always wondering what the right thing to do is. Slowing down creates space for us to figure out the answer. When we slow down, we give ourselves a chance to connect with our inner guidance. We develop a sense of compassion for where we are on a given day. We learn to respect our intuitive guidance as we slow down.

Discernment is a practice that develops from slowing down and finding our still centre. Through the practice of discernment, we learn to look at the many options in front of us and learn to take the option that is most suitable. As we slow down, we discern what is important. We discern what it relevant in our lives. We discern what is necessary for our lives.

When we feel blocked in life, and practice slowing down, we can use discernment to find our way through every block. It is easier to tune into discernment when we take a deep breath, find our centre and connect with the stillness inside. From this place of stillness, we identify the relevant, necessary and important option.

Slowing down and practicing discernment are like muscles. They need to be flexed and practiced often to become strong.

“Discernment is so much more than recognising right from wrong. It helps us distinguish the relevant from the irrelevant, the important from the unimportant, and the necessary from that which is merely nice.” – Dave A. Bednar

Life comes in waves

Life comes in waves. Some of these waves mean slowing down and other waves mean we need to speed up. Slowing down is an overwhelming concept. We are so overloaded with information and with things to do and to see and to watch. We can feel like we’re going to miss something or lose out by slowing down. Slowing down requires patience, compassion, good boundaries and discernment. Through practice and connecting with our intuition, we learn how to balance these waves.

But is it worth it? Absolutely. When we slow down, we give ourselves a chance to take stock of our lives. We give our body and mind a chance to catch up with all the things we’re trying to do. As we slow down, we give ourselves space for connection, both with ourselves and with others. As we learn to slow down and become comfortable with it, we realise what’s important and what’s not important. We begin to let go of the things that aren’t important to us. We begin to find ways through every block. We begin to connect with our intuitive guidance.

“Doing is Believing”. It’s very easy to talk about slowing down. Practicing slowing down is another ballgame. It takes conscious effort. But after a week or two of practicing slowness, we begin to see that we actually do have time for the things that are important. Our body gets the rest it needs. Our mind gets the insights it needs to move us forward. Then we wonder why we haven’t slowed down before.

“Once she stopped rushing through life, she was amazed how much more life she had time for”. – unknown

Why a Women’s Circle?

Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Yoga Master, wanted women to have a sense of their own worth. He felt that when this happens, women empower themselves and the world around them. He truly believed that it was time for women to step into their own power.

Yogi Bhajan said to women “Your inner concept and your outer projection have to be in balance. From beginning to end, you must act as a women in absolute grace.” He also said, “You are woman, not a playmate. You are a woman, not a good-for-nothing. No creature on this planet has the beauty, the strength, and the power that you have as a woman”.

There is beauty and a sense of wholeness and heartfulness when women come together in a circle. Women’s Circles are a chance to take a step back, focus and decide which path to take forward. The intention is to figure out our inner concept so we can start to project who we are.

The next Women’s Circle is on Friday 12 Oct 2018 at 7pm. Through meditation, connecting with the vibrational energy of essential oils and through guided journaling and discussion, we come to a deep understanding of our hearts desires. We will be working with Lemon Myrtle essential oil at this Women’s Circle. Lemon Myrtle helps us when we want to move from the vibration of doubtfulness to resourcefulness. As we move into leadership in our own lives, we learn to balance allowin amd taking action to manifest our dreams.

Start to step into self-understanding and resourcefulness with these three questions:
1. What does success mean to me?
2. What makes me feel truly alive?
3. What do I want my legacy to be?

Much love,

Tracy Fitzgerald

Indian Head Massage

In the 10 years that I’ve been an Indian Head Massage therapist, I developed a a theory that a gentle massage is vitally important as it activates the body’s parasympathetic nervous system. This aspect of our nervous system deals with regeneration, recharging, healing and growth. It’s the aspect that improves digestion and helps release tension from the body. If there was a knot in a piece of rope, we wouldn’t try and take it out deeply or roughly. A knot is gently teased out of a piece of rope. I believe that we need to treat our bodies just as gently and tease out the knots and tension so the parasympathetic nervous system can be activated. When we’re busy and going about our day and dealing with trauma, it’s the sympathetic nervous system that’s activated. It is so important to take breaks from this by effectively activating the parasympathetic nervous system.

Indian Head Massage includes massage of the upper back, upper arms, neck and head and so the name Indian Head Massage isn’t very apt. It’s a massage that focuses on areas that really gather stress. People are often surprised how relaxing the upper arm massage can be. Clients are always surprised at how gentle the massage is. This is because I am focused on relaxing the nervous system so the body is in a relaxed state to renew itself.

Reiki and Seichem

Reiki and Seichem is a wonderful energy healing modality. I call on Reiki and Seichem every day to help me find my way through the day. Reiki is the earth elemental healing ray and Seichem is the air, water and fire elemental rays. Reiki and Seichem is a wonderfully balanced modality. Energy flows in and around us. When I work with Reiki and Seichem, I’m working with energy in a very focused way using intention and by working with the Chakra System. Intention is very important in a Reiki and Seichem session as I set the intention for the body to be brought into balance in a gentle way for the highest good of the client.

I’ve been a Reiki and Seichem practitioner since 2012 and in 2018 I became and Reiki and Seichem Master/Teacher. I love the depth that Reiki and Seichem has brought to my life. It’s been an honour working with clients, and facilitating a space for them to connect with their inner selves, their self-love, self-love, self-confidence and self-believe. When this happens they begin to thrive and their ability to cope with life improve immensely.

Foot Reflex Massage

Foot Reflex Massage is the type of foot massage I’m trained in. It was created by Christine Courtney of Obus School of Holistic Therapies in Leixlip, Co. Kildare. It’s a combination of Swiss Reflex Massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine using the meridians of the body. Christine has found Foot Reflex Massage to be a very successful treatment, bringing relieve from stress, aches and pains and other problems.

I loved learning the Foot Reflex Massage because it fits in with my theory that a gentle massage is vitally important as it activates the body’s parasympathetic nervous system. This aspect of our nervous system deals with regeneration, recharging, healing and growth. It’s the aspect that improves digestion and helps release tension from the body. If there was a knot in a piece of rope, we wouldn’t try and take it out deeply or roughly. A knot is gently teased out of a piece of rope. I believe that we need to treat our bodies just as gently and tease out the knots and tension so the parasympathetic nervous system can be activated. When we’re busy and going about our day and dealing with trauma, it’s the sympathetic nervous system that’s activated. It is so important to take breaks from this by effectively activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
