Here is a photograph from a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, Arizona. It was spectacular. It was my first helicopter ride and what better way than across the gorge in all its glory. It has layers of red rock from many geological time periods.

Lion’s Feet

Lion’s Feet

I love close-ups of wildlife. These are lion’s feet. They are so incredible with the foot padding and the beautiful fur around it. “The lion (Panthera leo) is a species in the family Felidae; it is a muscular, deep-chested cat with a short, rounded head, a reduced neck and round ears, and a hairy tuft at the end of its tail.”

This full-bodied eagle was a photograph taken north of Winnipeg in Little Deer, Manitoba, Canada. It is beautiful and stunning. I did an abstract head drawing in coloured inks. It is combined in the computer as a new image.

This is a photo I took of a close-up of a leopard’s head. He is magnificent – isn’t he? The leopard is one of the five extant species in the genus Panthera, a member of the Felidae. The leopard occurs in a wide range in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia.

HSP – Highly Sensitive People

HSP

Book: “The Handbook for Highly Sensitive People:How to Transform Feeling Overwhelmed and Frazzled to Empowered and Fulfilled,” by Mel Collins, Watkins Media Ltd., 2019.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

The book is available January 15, 2019.

Mel Collins worked in a prison for over 10 years as a HSP or Highly Sensitive Person. She realized that this was not the best match and so studied to become a therapist which was ideal for her intuitive abilities.

Some people are scared that they are so highly sensitive or intuitive but Mel Collins sees this as a gift. She believes in having a balanced life between the feminine and the masculine aspects or the yin and yang of the person.

She also believes in having a balance between physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. By keeping these areas balanced and shiny like a diamond, there will be very positive results for the HSP.

Mel Collins talks about the chakras and the auric field. She talks about EFT tapping. She discusses ways to protect HSP from outside energies in a number of ways.

There area a number of ways to deal with energy fields. First is the golden light technique, second is visualizing using colours, third is the spotlight method, fourth is crystal therapy and fifth is prayer or faith-based techniques. It is important to clear energetic hooks or cords and cleansing your aura and chakras by the silver shower method, the violet flame method, or smudging or burning sage. Plus, there is the power of salt and the pool of purification method.

Mel Collins says there are earthbound spirits that may attach to a HSP because of the lighter and higher vibrations the person is giving off and because the person is a helper. In these cases, it is important to get the spirit to understand that they are no longer living and should move onto the light.

She talks about the divine blueprint that is with all of us before we reincarnated. We often deal with outstanding issues from previous lifetimes. Mel also does past-life regression therapy work and feels it could be important to realizing why we are here on Earth.

I found the book about Highly Sensitive People to be a good one because I am one. I thought what can this author teach me that I already don’t know about myself and the spirit world but she did a pretty good overview. I liked the book and would recommend it to people who are intuitive but still developing their spiritual practice. For those who have been evolving for awhile, it is a good overview.

365 Ways to Beat Stress

365 stress

 

Book: “365 Ways to Beat Stress: How to Relax and Find Perfect Calm” by Adam Gordon (ed), Watkins Media Ltd., 2019.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available April 16, 2019

There are a few sections to this book: Mornings, Dealing with Stress and Emotions, Positive Change, Mind and Spirit, Body, The Peaceful Home, Work, People, Creativity and Play, and Evenings.

There are common-sense and yet new ways of dealing with stress. This book is full of good ideas from drawing insight from your dreams to thinking how you can give joy to one person today as you walk to singing in the showers.

I recommend this book to those who would like to give a thoughtful gift. It can be used daily as an inspiration to what to do with your life to destress. It is well thought out and worth it.

365 Ways to Find Peace

365 peace

 

Book: “365 Ways to Find Peace: Meditations and Inspirations” by Marcus Braybrooke (ed), Watkins Media Ltd., 2019.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available April 16, 2019

There are a number of sections to this daily book of 365 ways to find peace through meditation and inspiration. It splits off in a number of sections: The Centre of Being, The Inner Circle of Love, and The Outer Circle of Spirit. There is a quote for each day from the Buddha, to Epictetus to George Washington Carver and George Herbert.

One that I like as an example is in the Svetashvatara Upanishad approximately 600 to 399 BCE in India.

“All is change in the world of the senses, but changeless is the supreme Lord of Love. Meditate on him, be absorbed by him, wake up from this dream of separateness.”

And then there is a more modern one from Max Ehrmann (1872 – 1945) USA

“You are a child of the Universe, no less than the moon and the stars you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should.”

It is good as a gift for a friend. It is best read one quote at a time to consider and reflect upon each day.
