How to use Reiki, to create wealth & abundance. Have you actualized your ideal life? Are you using the law of attraction to create wealth and happiness in your life? We’ve created an Abundance Prosperity Reiki technique that combines Reiki with prosperity laws of attraction. It’s simple and effective. Try it out for yourself and see how abundance and prosperity begins to flow into your life. We all live in an abundant universe. It just takes tapping into the energy of prosperity. As you read this section remember… you deserve an abundant life. Optional Supplies for the Technique: * Pen and Paper
* 1 Orange Candle * A Glass of Water * Two Sticks of Your favorite Incense * A Ruby, Garnet, or other Prosperity Crystal * A small Wooden Bowl with Earth or Sand in it Abundance Prosperity Reiki Step #1: Find a quiet place in your house.
Turn off the phone and put on some soothing music. Light some of your favorite incense. Place the wooden bowl filled with earth, the glass of water, your prosperity crystal, and a small orange candle on a table in front of you. The incense represents the element of air energy. The bowl of earth represents the element of earth energy.
The glass of water represents the element of water energy. The candle represents the element of fire energy and the orange color of the candle brings in the energy of the sacral chakra, the chakra in charge of creation and manifestation. Abundance Prosperity
Reiki Step #2: Write down what you wish to manifest. Use an affirmation of wealth: Here’s a sample wealth affirmation to get your creative juices flowing: “Abundance and prosperity flow into my life. Peace flows into my life. Health flows into my life.” Draw a cho-ku-Re, Reiki symbol onto the paper next to your manifestation request. This will bring in the universal white light energy that is Reiki into your prosperity laws of attraction request, magnifying its strength. Abundance Prosperity
Reiki Step #3: Read your affirmation request out loud three times. The spoken word magnifies everything ten-fold. Feel your abundance wish already manifested and present in your life. Visualize your life as it will be when you have achieved your abundance wish. Feel the joy and gratitude that it brings into your life now that you have it. Abundance Prosperity
Reiki Step #4: Pick up your chosen crystal and hold it clasped between both of your hands. Feel it’s vibrations emanating into your hands. Wrap the abundance prayer sheet around the crystal and continue holding both the paper and the crystal between your hands. Take four deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. Focus on the paper and the crystal and begin toning OM. Repeat the OMtwelve times. Abundance Prosperity Reiki
Step #5: Drink the water you have set nearby. Reiki Masters have proven that energetic vibrations transfer to water. The water in the glass has picked up all of the powerful vibrations of your affirmation. By drinking the water, you are imbuing the reality of your abundance affirmation into the cells of your body. Light the second stick of incense and send your affirmation blessing to the universe. Burning the incense releases your wish to Spirit. Spirit will now orchestrate your universe to send you all of the abundance and prosperity that you have asked for.
The power of consistency: Every day, until your affirmation has been manifested, pull out the abundance paper you created and speak the abundance affirmation out loud. Feel the abundance vibrating into your life every time you say it.
There are many ways to attract abundance into your life; this is simply one of them. Allow your intuition to tell you what will work best for you.
Oh Divine Force, Spirit of All Creation,
Divine Presence, manifest in every living being.
Supreme Soul manifested as the Divine Mother
and as the Divine Father.
The Peace which passeth understanding.
This mantra evokes the living God, asking protection and freedom from all sorrow and suffering. It is a prayer that adores the great creator and liberator, who out of love and compassion manifests, to protect us, in an earthly form. This Moolamantra has given great peace and joy to people all over the world, who have chanted, or even listened to it. It has the power to transport ones mind to the state of causeless love and limitless joy. The calmness that the mantra can give is to be experienced, not spoken about. Dear reader, here is the key with which any door to spiritual treasure could be opened. A tool which can be used to achieve all desires. A medicine which cures all ills. The nectar that can set man free! All auspiciousness and serenity is yours simply by chanting or listening to this magnificent Moolamantra.
Whenever you chant the Moolamantra even without knowing the meaning of it, that itself carries power. But when you know the meaning and chant with that feeling in your heart then the energy would flow million times more powerful. Therefore it is essential to know the meaning of the Mantra when you use it.
The Mantra is like calling a name. Just like when you call a person he comes and makes you feel his presence, the same manner when you chant this mantra, the supreme energy manifests everywhere around you. As the Universe is Omnipresent, the supreme energy can manifest anywhere and any time. It is also very important to know that the invocation with all humility, respect and with great necessity makes the presence stronger.

|Om||Om has 100 different meanings. It is said ‘In the beginning was the Supreme word and the word created every thing. That word is Om’. If you are meditating in silence deeply, you can hear the sound Om within. The whole creation emerged from the sound Om. It is the primordial sound or the Universal sound by which the whole universe vibrates. Om also means inviting the higher energy. This divine sound has the power to create, sustain and destroy, giving life and movement to all that exist.|
|Sat Chit Ananda|
|Sat||The all penetrating existence that is formless, shapeless, omnipresent, attribute less, and quality less aspect of the Universe. It is the Un manifest. It is experienced as emptiness of the Universe. We could say it is the body of the Universe that is static. Every thing that has a form and that can be sensed, evolved out of this Un manifest. It is so subtle that it is beyond all perceptions. It can only be seen when it has become gross and has taken form. We are in the Universe and the Universe is in us. We are the effect and Universe is the cause and the cause manifests itself as the effect.|
|Chit||The Pure Consciousness of the Universe that is infinite, omni-present manifesting power of the Universe. Out of this is evolved everything that we call Dynamic energy or force. It can manifest in any form or shape. It is the consciousness manifesting as motion, as gravitation, as magnetism, etc. It is also manifesting as the actions of the body, as thought force. It is the Supreme Spirit.|
|Ananda||Bliss, love and friendship nature of the Universe. When you experience either the Supreme Energy in this Creation (Sat) and become one with the Existence or experience the aspect of Pure Consciousness (Chit), you enter into a state of Divine Bliss and eternal happiness (Ananda). This is the primordial characteristic of the Universe, which is the greatest and most profound state of ecstasy that you can ever experience when you relate with your higher Consciousness.|
|Parabrahma||The Supreme Being in his Absolute aspect; one who is beyond space and time. It is the essence of the Universe that is with form and without form. It is the Supreme creator.|
|Purushothama||This has different meanings. Purusha means soul and Uthama means the supreme, the Supreme spirit. It also means the supreme energy of force guiding us from the highest world. Purusha also means Man, and Purushothama is the energy that incarnates as an Avatar to help and guide Mankind and relate closely to the beloved Creation.|
|Paramatma||The supreme inner energy that is immanent in every creature and in all beings, living and non-living. It’s the indweller or the Antaryamin who resides formless or in any form desired. It’s the force that can come to you whenever you want and wherever you want to guide and help you.|
|Sri Bhagavathi||The female aspect, which is characterized as the Supreme Intelligence in action, the Power (The Shakti). It is referred to the Mother Earth (Divine Mother) aspect of the creation.|
|Sametha||Together or in communion with.|
|Sri Bhagavathe||The Male aspect of the Creation, which is unchangeable and permanent.|
|Namaha||Salutations or prostrations to the Universe that is Om and also has the qualities of Sat Chit Ananda, that is omnipresent, unchangeable and changeable at the same time, the supreme spirit in a human form and formless, the indweller that can guide and help in the feminine and masculine forms with the supreme intelligence. I seek your presence and guidance all the time.|
Sat-Chit-Ananda is a triple consciousness. Sat is existence, Chit is consciousness and Ananda is bliss. You can separate them if you want to and, at the same time, you can take them as one. If one achieves Existence, then inside Existence he has Consciousness itself. And if one has Consciousness, then Bliss is there. It is like an apartment or plot of land. You can give the plot of land one name or, if you want to divide it, each part of the plot can be called by a different name. But the reality of one is bound to be found in the other. They complement one another. So you can either separate them or keep them as one.
Sat-Chit-Ananda is the triple consciousness on the highest plane, and that plane is for the absolutely chosen few. To reach Sat-Chit-Ananda is a most difficult thing. Hardly twenty or thirty Masters have reached it and stayed at that plane, and hardly one or two can embody it. Some Masters have reached that plane and immediately came down because it was too high for them. It is much easier for people to reach the illumined mind or the Supermind, but Sat-Chit-Ananda is absolutely the highest. That consciousness is almost impossible to attain, even for the spiritual Masters. (God, Avatars and Yogis)
To be sure, the Kingdom of Heaven is more than just a mere plane, like other planes. It is a plane of divine Consciousness. It is a state of Realization. It embodies Sat-Chit-Ananda. Sat is divine Existence, Chit is divine Consciousness, Ananda is divine Bliss. When we go deep within we feel these three together, and when we acquire the inner vision to perceive them all at once, we live verily in the Kingdom of Heaven. Otherwise, Existence is at one place, Consciousness is somewhere else and Bliss is nowhere near the other two. When we see and feel Existence-Consciousness-Bliss on the selfsame plane, each complementing and fulfilling the others, we can say that we live in the Kingdom of Heaven. Yes, the Kingdom of Heaven is within us. Not only can we feel it, but without the least possible doubt, we can become it.
“Consciousness is the ability to be present in your life in every moment, without judgment of you or anyone else. It is the ability to receive everything, reject nothing, and create everything you desire in life – greater than what you currently have, and more than what you can imagine.
Consciousness includes everything and judges nothing. If you have no judgment of anything, then you get to look at everything for what it is, not for what you want it to be, not for what it ought to be, but just for what it is.”
Sounds hard to me. With all the programming foisted on us by our parents, family members, friends, teachers at school, leaders in the community, and society at large, it’s difficult to know what one’s truth is, let alone live it!
The iridescent colors of dragonfly wings & body (& their cousin the Mayfly) have captivated me ever since I was a young child. Even though I am an Earth sign, there is something about water that draws me to it. Perhaps it is the security I felt being in the womb of my mother. Or maybe it is because of my parents love of the beach and taking me there when I was newly born has something to do with it. I simply adore the scent of water. It doesn’t matter of it is fresh water or the saltiness of the sea & salt marsh, I simply must be near it!
Some of my fondest memories are of my parent’s, my siblings, and me playing in the streams, creeks & rivers of inland Florida. My father took us fishing often. I also enjoy the memories of jumping off of his strong shoulders into the waves of Folly Beach.
I can recall long lazy summer days lying in the grass and watching dragonflies flit from rock to rock in the stream. Elkhorn Creek at the Forks of the Elkhorn (near Frankfort Kentucky has one of the most prolific populations of the lovely creatures. My children & I often went to slide down the side of the old stone dam on inner tubes into the rushing waters of the creek. Once exhausted from playing we’d lay on the ricks and watch dragonflies & mayflies flit about. Pure Heaven!!!
Recently I started a social media strategy company. I named it Dragonfly Social Connection. There are a few reasons why I chose this name that I will not go into now. Suffice it to say, it just seemed fitting.
I have been house-sitting for my son & his wife while they vacation and I have been doing lots of work in the yard. Oh how I adore being outside in the sun. I enjoy mowing the grass & digging in the dirt. I keep the water-hose handy so I can keep spraying myself. It is so hot!!! However, you will not hear me complain about itJ In the midst of gardening and such a very bright and very green dragonfly keeps hovering around me. It is not afraid of me either and I really like that.
As part of my spiritual path I have been paying closer attention to nature and what She is saying to me. I believe I was a Shaman in a past life because it comes too easily to me…teaching, healing, a wisdom beyond the logical mind; all of these have been intrinsically a part of my life for so long that I cannot remember being any other way. This got me to pondering…
What is up with Dragonfly?
Off I went on a search and the following is what I have discovered:
Symbolic Meanings of the Dragonfly
As a creature of the wind, the dragonfly totem represents change. It’s iridescent wings are incredibly sensitive to the slightest breeze, and so we are reminded to heed where the proverbial wind blows – lest we run into stormy weather.
Dragonflies are also creatures of the water, and any creature whose habitat is in, or around water carries symbolism relative the subconscious, or “dreaming” mind and thoughts.
This is because in the animal world, water is symbolic of the subconscious mind (“deeper mind,” “dreaming mind”) and relates to the thoughts we have in relaxed/meditative/sleeping/subconscious states.
Quick-list animal symbolism of the dragonfly:
These symbolic meanings of dragonfly are particularly associated in Asian (Japan) and Native American (Plains region) circles.
Dragonflies carry messages that deal with deeper thought – and they ask that we pay attention to our deeper thoughts and desires.
Further symbolic insect meaning of dragonfly comes into play when we observe the dragonfly’s mode of transportation as it skitters across the top of water surfaces. This implies that our deeper thoughts are surfacing and we must be mindful of the outcome we wish to have.
The dragonfly is a reminder that when our deeper thoughts rise to the surface we must pay attention – there are lessons to be learned, and we are also reminded that what we think is directly proportionate to what we “see on the surface.” …In short, our thoughts (even the deeper ones that we might not be as in-touch with as we are with our conscious thoughts) are responsible for what we see in our lives – in our physical surroundings.
The dragonfly gives us a very powerful meditation tool. Close your eyes, and focus on a thought – let it rise to the surface of your mind’s ocean – see that thought float lightly up to the water’s surface. Now upon the top of a smooth, calm glass-like surface – visualize that thought moving across that water – sliding across – smooth and fast.
This exercise is useful when we want to visualize positive outcomes in a situation. We see the thought of hope happily moving across an ocean of peace (peaceful mind) and skirting to a perfect outcome.
Lastly it should be noted that the Dragonfly lives a short life, and it knows it must live to the fullest with what it has. This lesson is huge for each of us. When you see a dragonfly, be aware of the gifts it has to offer by keeping its animal totem meanings in mind.
The hustle and bustle of everyday life is choking our minds of the peace we deserve! Our technology advancements shouldn’t suffocate our minds, it should allow us to achieve more peace. Meditation helps put those events in perspective for our daily tasks.
2. Your blood pressure is lowered
Science has proven it, meditation lowers the blood pressure, which in return is related to your stress levels and stress management. Much better than taking pills to lower your blood pressure!
3. People around you enjoy your company
Regular meditation leads to higher/positive energy that you are consistently tapping into. This effectively makes you very pleasant to be around, and people like that! People naturally gravitate to the people that make them feel good.
4. Your connection with God is strengthened
Spiritual awareness is strengthened with a daily meditation practice. You naturally become more aware of your surroundings, and higher awareness always leads to a deeper connection with God. The trees begin showing personalities, and the landscape takes on different meanings … all through a deeper awareness.
5. You achieve several hours of sleep in one 20 minute meditation session
Another scientific fact is that meditation is known to put you into a deeper state of rest than deep sleep. Deep sleep is associated with a delta brainwave. Deep meditation can drop you into that delta brainwave rapidly, achieving the effects in a shorter amount of time.
6. Problems that seemed very difficult suddenly have clear solutions
For every problem a solution exists. When your mind is clear and your in a state of peace, solutions appear. Being in a state of peace just naturally attracts solutions and pathways into your field of view.
7. Your productivity sky rockets because of your ability to have clear focus
If solutions to problems appear more frequently when meditating daily, then imagine what happens to your everyday tasks. Solutions to everyday life become more and more obvious. And you begin to take note of these subtle changes as your spiritual vision grows clearer and wider.
8. Your life expectancy increases
Science has shown that regular meditation will increase your life expectancy. It’s pretty obvious to see … less stress and more peace promotes healthy cells and healthy cells regenerate healthier cells. And likewise, stressed cells regenerate more stressed cells. So live longer by choosing more peace in your life.
9. You effectively reduce stress in your life
Speaking of stress, meditation has a profound effect on reducing stress in your body. Because meditation promotes peace and inner calm, stress dissolves dramatically from this meditative process. Again, science has proven it.
10. You can visualize powerfully when combined with positive affirmations and meditation
Meditation is powerful at clearing the mind and focusing on simple things … like breathing … or a flower. But, it can be used for so much more! To powerfully manifest your desires, you must get into a clear connection with the source of manifesting (God(YAHWEH)/Universe/Ethers). If your spirits are on high while you visualize then the communication channel for manifesting positive events in your life is strengthened.
While meditating I like to repeat affirmations, otherwise known as mantras, to help focus my energy into the positive. These statements can be as simple as “love” or “I am love, I am joy, I am peace”.
11. You feel fantastic throughout your day!
And finally, when you meditate on a regular basis, you just feel fantastic. Plain and simple. You feel good!
Among the challenges that humankind is facing is the disintegration of our intimate relationships. As our collective awakening deepens, anger, resentment and frustration continue to rise to the surface of our personal relationships. We can call it a necessary purging of old trauma.
This is a lesson based on a tradition called “the four noble truths.” Briefly, those truths are the first truth of suffering, the second truth of the cause of suffering, the third truth of the discontinuing of the cause of suffering, and the fourth truth of the way to live life after suffering.
The first truth of suffering involves relating to life as if there is some part of life that should not be how it is. Suffering is not simply pain or illness or old age or dying or even violence. Suffering is a way of relating to life. Suffering involves ill will as in contempt as in enduring madness as in mental illness as in agonizing as in hell. While there are a variety of forms and intensities of suffering, what I mean by the word suffering includes all of them.
The second truth of the…

I received a comment on the prior blog which led to the following exchange:
I have been studying Buddhism for around 20 years and recently I saw some Youtube content from Tony Parsons and Mooji (as well as Alan Watts) that demonstrated a practical clarity regarding these basic Buddhist teachings (of the four noble truths)- not just a familiarity with the words, but a direct experience of the principles.
I also credit Landmark Education and their distinction “upset,” which is similar to the Buddhist distinction (translated in to English) of “suffering.” Here are the “four noble truths” revised to use the term upset rather than the term suffering:
1) there is such a thing as the experience of an upset.
2) An upset is triggered not just by one thing, but by a sequence of misinterpretations or misconceptions or “undistinguished” reactions.
3) Upsets can be “de-constructed” or dissolved…
