Chakra Healing with Crystal Bowls & a FREE Gift!

Sound is a vibrational energy that is received not only by the ears, but also penetrates the body and imprints us on a cellular level. Throughout history, various instruments have been used for providing sound in healing, such as: the flute, harp, chimes, gongs, drums, Tibetan singing bowls and Crystal Singing Bowls. We are so richly blessed to have Elivia Melodey as our first presenter at Transform & Thrive! She, and the magic of her bowls, will set the tone for this very enriching day. Reverend Elivia has established herself as a noted recording artist through Crystal Vibrations Music. Acclaim over her music is being credited as the, “Birth of an entirely new genre of healing music.” Together with her playing partners in the Crystal Vibrations Music Ensemble, she performs concerts throughout the United States. Her instrument collection continues to grow, but includes: over 26 Singing crystal bowls, a Celtic harp, zither, Native American flutes, gongs, rattles, drums, chimes and even a steel drum. Here’s some of what Elivia has to say about this wonderful healing art: “Vibrational sound healing can be traced back from the present day trends to many ancient civilizations including India, Africa, Europe, and the Orient. Each culture had unique approaches specific to their region and beliefs. Vibrational sound touches our bodies on a molecular and crystalline level. The body is a network of vibration fields and energy currents and each individual resonates at his or her own vibration. Sound is an acoustical wave, while color is an electromagnetic wave. The colors of the rainbow correspond to a specific musical note in the same way...

The Spiritual Meaning of the Summer Solstice

The Summer Solstice is Sunday, June 21 at 10:37 AM Mountain Daylight Time. (MDT)  For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the Summer Solstice usually occurs around June 21st. I say “usually” because our calendar doesn’t follow the earth’s rotation exactly, so it can shift. In my research I came across an article 15 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About the Summer Solstice. Among them: The Pagans celebrate the solstice with symbols of fire and water. In Paganism and Wicca, Midsummer is celebrated with a festival known as Litha. In ancient Europe, the festival involved rolling giant wheels lit on fire into bodies of water to symbolize the balance between fire and water. Water is yin/feminine in character, its energy is downward and its motion is stillness and conserving. Water is also the element of stillness and rest, taking time to rest and rejuvenate yourself. It is in the Water element that all great innovations and ideas are birthed. Fire is yang/masculine in character, its direction is upward and its energy is expansive. Fire is the Element responsible for the passionate resonance when you are following your life’s calling. The ancient Chinese honored the yin on the solstice. In ancient China, the summer solstice was the yin to the winter solstice’s yang—literally. Throughout the year, the Chinese believed, the powers of yin and yang waxed and waned in reverse proportion to each other. At the summer solstice, the influence of yang was at its height, but the celebration centered on the impending switch to yin. At the winter solstice, the opposite switch was honored. The name comes from the fact that...

Getting Things Done – with EASE!

Does it ever feel like managing everything in your life, your To-Do list, is kind of like tapping your head with one hand and rubbing your stomach with the other at the same time?! Do you find yourself looking at your task list at the end of the day, realizing that it has grown instead of shrunk, and say to yourself “Man, I need some better time management!”? Here are some symptoms of when your mind / body / spirit are in a state of overwhelm: You find yourself staring at the computer reading the same sentence or paragraph over and over because you didn’t comprehend it the first time. You can’t seem to do the one thing you most really needed to do today. The same uncompleted tasks roll from one day to the next. All of this can leave you feeling discouraged, doubting your ability to manage your time, completely overwhelmed, oh, and the guilt, don’t even get me started on that one! I was in a session with a client yesterday and she was telling me how she had been at a retreat all last week and how at the end of the week she thought to herself “I’m just going to take the whole week off next week.” That thought was immediately followed by, “I can’t take next week off! I’ve been off all week this week and I have too much work to do!” Ever been there? I know I have! Now, perhaps you could use some tools to better manage your time. Here are some steps you can take to better discern for...
