Have Reiki Will Travel-What is Long Distance Reiki.

By Natasha Botkin 

What is our Personal Energy Field? 

Our bodies are comprised of different energy levels that resonate at various levels and speeds: depending whether we are speaking of your physical body, emotional body, mental body or spiritual body.  The speed upon which our energies proceed is based on how everything is working together.  Thus, this creates an energy field that is formed around one.

What is long distance Reiki

Long distance Reiki does hold the same similarities and effectiveness as in-person Reiki.   It is just the mode that is delivered differently. Therefore, a skilled Reiki Master can allocate Reiki to you in a distance setting.

Am I still receiving Reiki

Yes, one is still receiving Reiki.  The modality of Reiki is divinely limitless that which you seek, seeks you. In reverence, energy is energy, and the divine will designate what you need at this very moment.

What might I feel? 

Just as with in-person Reiki, one will feel their own individual experience.  This may be feeling sleepy or falling asleep, relaxed, peaceful, a surge of energies and so forth.  Please be sure to coordinate a time that is best for you to be present and enjoy the benefits of Reiki.

May you enjoy the benefits of Reiki.  

Yes I’d love to schedule a Reiki Session.

***Please check with your Reiki Master credentials.

Enriching African Violets

By  Natasha Botkin 

African Violet Single

I love to help you naturally clear away negative energy.

To some, the african violet is known to be a fussy plant, and many are nervous to attempt to grow this in their homes.  This may cause one to miss out on their special magical qualities.

How to care for an African Violet: 

  • This plant requires keeping the soil moist to dry.growing-african-violets-L-Jrwnt_
  • To encourage blooming please allow the soil around the roots to dry out before watering.
  • It is more benefical to water from the bottom with room temperature water; as this helps to avoid getting water on the leaves that can cause spotting damage.
  • The flowering plant requires moderate to bright light, some people will have special lighting units just for their african violet.

This may seem like a bunch of work.  The benefits far outweigh the care of the plant.

African Violet Cleansing Benefits: 

This beautiful plant and flower is a mega powerhouse in the form of cleansing one’s space.

Clearing of Neagtive Energies:

They are able to clear away the old, heavy energies that may weigh one down.  Especially an empath.  In any space this sweet beauty will powerfully eliminate those energies. Thus, having this in your home or office will help reduce the negative vibes that may be around.  No one will even be aware, and believe this to just be a beautiful flowering plant.

They are also incredible at transmuting the lower energies into a higher vibration.

Eliminating the Old: 

The presence of an african violet can help release the old, creating an easier transition.  The african violet says, “Please ask me to help you clear away your old nuiances and allow space for the new to take place.”

Bad Dreams and/or Nightmares: 

If you are one to have nightmares or bad dreams, place this near your bedside.  It will help to erase these from you.  Or a child who may have difficulty with sleeping, place this in their rooms and the fear of things that go bump in the night shall lessen.

Archeangel Qualities: 

Not only are the plants and flowers a great way to clear negative energies, this plant/flower also works with Archeangels.

Arachangel Michael who is known as -he who is like God, has a way to create releasing and clearing.  If you request the help of the african violet along with Archeangel Michael’s sword, this is a powerful combination. He will cut away the negative vibes and energies.  After he clears away the negative energies, ask Archeangel Michael, “Dear Archeangel Michael please place a protective divine white light all around me.”  Breath in 3 counts, hold for 3 counts and breath out for 3 counts, and so it is.  The african violet helps to continue to cleanse the area around one.

Archeangel Raphel is an angel of healing-one who heals God’s souls. Requesting his presence along with the afriacn violet can help the healing of a concerned ailment.  He is associated with the color green, and green sparkles are a sign that he is present.

Metatron is not an archeangel, but a human known in the form of a prophet and for his Merkaba cube.  This can help in the clearing of lower energies, and when utilizing Metatron’s gifts one may see pink and green lights.

Associated Chakras: 

The Third Eye and Crown chakras are associated with the african violet.  This dazzling plant can help get rid of any negative, old, heavy energies that are not allowing one to utilize these chakras.

If you feel that these chakras are blocked, sit near an african violet and ask the flowering or non-flowering beauty to help you remove that which is blocking.

Pets: 

Please be aware that sometimes cats like to nibble on this plant, and this is not good as ingesting the leaves is posinous.

 

May you enjoy the incredible grace that this flowering plant bestows upon us in a most natural manner. 

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings

How Do You Repsond?

By Natasha Botkin 

Life can create choppy waves, the true question is how do you respond.

My dog and I were enjoying a beautiful, sunny day at the beach.  The waves pushing her around, but as a typical Lab, she was relentless on, “Please, oh please throw me the stick.  I can do this Mom.”  Me completely aware of her swimming abilities.

A bitter lady nearby said, “You are a cruel pet owner, she’s surely to drown.”

Now this lady, has never seen us, does not know us and has no clue to us.  This did not deter me from enjoying my moment at the beach.  My sweet dog happily, jumping in the waves, fetching her stick and both of us having an all around good time.

At one moment, a wave came up and nearly toppled her, but she held her ground and frolicked out to sea.  It was at this moment, my higher self said, “Well how do you respond?”  

Brilliant question from a wise soul!   So I ask you the same requited question.  How do you respond?  Do you allow the waves to toppled you over or beat against you, feeling as if you are drowning or less than there of.  Or do you reach deep within and allow the tranquility of peace to wash all over you, in you and around you as life creates those tough wavy moments.

As this woman, made her statement, I did not “feel” anything, rather I knew this was not about me, but her.  My choice at that particular moment to turn inward, inhaling the calm, serene blue skies inward, pausing for a moment and then breathing out a pink bubble and blowing this to the wind and sea.

May you too have the ability to breathe in the peace and breathe out a pink bubble  blowing “this” away from you.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Gentle Approach

by Natasha Botkin 

With all of the energies that are happening, please be gentle with yourself.  

The angels and/or Archangels love when one requests assistance to help.  We also have the lunar energies of a full moon and luna would enjoy releasing  that which no longer serves you.  You, see Mercury Retrograde is really bringing up what no longer serves you and releasing is a must.  One may agree and move through in a gentle manner or resist with tension, pain, emotional outbursts and so forth.

Viewing the video gives you some ideas of ways to help you out.

  1.  Please note that angels love to help, but cannot unless you ask for this.
  2. Mercury Retrograde is creating a way for one to look back and reflect on energies, memories that no longer serve one and this must be released. A wonderful way is the lunar energies of a Super Full Moon as it can supercharge this release.
  3. There is also a lunar eclipse at the same time.  WOW!
  4. How beautiful as the Aries energies move in.   A new beginning after releasing the old.  YEAH!!
  5. Be sure to Play!  Playing is a wonderful way of releasing that which no longer serves one.  Even though everyone’s play looks different, enjoy your playing time.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings, 

Natasha 

A New Approach to Mercury Retrograde

by Natasha Botkin 

Poor Mercury what did this dear planet ever do to humans.  Why is this planet getting so much flack.  This planet represents clear thinking, communication, truth and travel.  During a retrograde, it appears that Mercury is spinning backwards.

Some may say that this causes electronics to go haywire.  Some may agree that communication is difficult.

This can be viewed from a negative propensity.  However, one can turn this around and view this as a truly a beautiful sacred gift.  It is a gift.

Mercury is presenting one with a way to honor themselves.  How better to honor one’s self with a gift of truthful communication.  A gift of communicating and traveling to be your true authentic self.  For too long humans have created a vortex of negativity about Mercury, and yet Mercury presents a great gift.  When one truly turns inward and communicates with their heart and soul (higher self), one is truly able to communicate avidly with another.  

Thus Mercury presents ever so often the opportunity to let go of the distractions, go deep inside and release that which no longer should be able to rest within one’s self.  Only then can you be the true you.  

Thank you Mercury for helping us to cycle back and reflect the lessons of our spiral.  By granting us the ability to let go of a the lesson.

May you be able to change the angle of the camera lens and receive this wonderous gift. 

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings

Once in a Blue Moon

by Natasha Botkin 

The full moon on July 31, 2015 will be a blue moon.  blue moon with wolf

What does this mean? 

It doesn’t happen very often. About once every 2.5 years. But when a single month displays two full moons within its span of days, the second full moon is known as the Blue Moon. Such is the case for July 2015 when on July 1st we saw the Full Moon, and on July 31st we will experience the 2nd Full Moon Phase, the Blue Moon.

The phrase doesn’t really signify the color of the moon, but rather it’s rare occurrence. Although the moon can take on a blue hue from atmospheric interference. The ash and soot from a volcanic eruption or wild-fire can distort the atmosphere enough to cause the moon to look blue.

Chakra Color: 

Blue is the color of the fifth chakra.  This is also the chakra that is associated with communication.

What are you expressing?
What kind of signals are you sending?
What’s the motivation behind your communication?

Utilize this blue-moon-moment in time to contemplate your spoken and unspoken thoughts and feelings.  Be mindful of what you think and feel.  The universe will answer you.  Do you wish for Luna’s powerful energies to create an answer that you do not wish to receive.

Symbolism: 

The moon is associated with feminine, shadows, and silver.

  • Feminine: This is the yin aspect of the feminine;  if you are a female this is time for you as a woman to be in all your glory.
  • Silvery: This is an ancient alchemy partner silver to be at the symbolic play of Clarity, Purification and Transition.  (Ask Luna to clear what needs to be released and watch the energies create a most magical of alchemy of letting go that which no longer serves one).
  • Shadows: This means going deep within.  Luna is the cloaked mistress of mystery.  She will help you to go deep within the crevices of your dark shadow side.  This is not meant to frighten nor harm you, but help one to dive deep into the truth of who you are.

Timing: 

There is divine timing in everything. Divine spirit and luna energies powering up together can create a compelling movement forward and allow your soul to sparkle with delight.  This is a time to go deep within, seek out those deep emotional truths and release them to those who will sweep them away.  Thus creating a shiny, sparkly new you.

Moon Ritual Altar:

  • Cleanse: This helps to purify yourself for the releasing of what needs to go.  Water is also associated with emotions; these will be deep emotions with the full moon. This could mean a nice hot bath alone or with a special loved one or sitting near water. Or you can have a beautiful crystal bowl and fill this with water, crystals and a few flowers of your choosing.
  • Dressing: Comfortable, light free-flowing clothing is idea.  Whether you are forgoing this alone or as a couple dress as you would like.  Now, if you wish to abstain from clothing, then be prepared for possible legal occurrences
  • Objects: Candle  You can use any color, as you choose; a white candle represent the purity of the divine spirit.

                        Poster- A nice howling wolf can help emote the lunar energies.  Wolves have a symbolically magical way about them.

If you wish to go more in-depth of the full moon ritual you may prepare a meal.

  • Food: For a formal ritual, you’ll need a goblet/chalice, a pitcher of wine or fruit juice, a plate or bowl with fruit, meat or cheese and crackers. Or some form of food/dessert that reflects the season when the Blue Moon occurs. I also recommend a nice piece of meditation music. Don’t forget your grimoire (a book of shadows) to record your evenings thoughts and experiences.

Opening: 

  •  This could be a grounding meditation or requesting Luna/Divine Spirit to join you as you begin, (Dear Luna and Divine Spirit may you please join me on my sacred journey for this full moon). Ancient ways have a sword being placed across a circle.
  • Set Intentions: This is a full moon, so what do you wish to have cleared and released out of your life?  This is an ideal time for releasing old patterns, beliefs, addictions and such.
  • You can also ask for more clear communication.

Ceremony: 

  • If you know a high priestess or shaman you can request them to conduct the ceremony. They can go deeper; if you know a multidimensional high priestess, lucky you!! .  It is nice if you do know a high priestess or shaman.  They can help conduct the energies between the spiritual and the physical.  If not, then you can guide yourself with these suggestions. It is all set on intentions.  There is no perfect way. No worries, if you do not have access.  You can make statements as your intention.  Allow this to freely flow from your heart.
  • If this ritual is between you and your partner; who is representing the feminine and who is representing the masculine.  As not all partnerships are male and female; so if you have a male-male, female-female partnership, it is best to seek who will represent each.
  • Suggestion: The physical are the items that you will bring.  If you need a spiritual mantra here is one:A Full Moon Release Ritual

    What you need: pen, paper, matches, candle, two small bowls, water

    If possible do this outside under the Full Moon, connecting directly with Mother Nature and the Moon’s energies.

    If you cannot be outside, find a quiet place indoors.

    1. Clear your energy. Imagine standing under a silver waterfall and allow all negative and non-serving energies to be washed away.
    2. Create a sacred space. Find a quiet place to sit, declutter and clean, place crystals or other special items around you.
    3. Light the candle, fill one small bowl with water – place both in front of you, along with the other empty bowl.
    4. Take a few deep breaths, centre yourself and then begin to write on the piece of paper what you wish to release from your life, what limiting beliefs you want to be free from, what no longer serves you or what you want to let go of.
    5. When you have finished your list, sign and date the page.
    6. Breathe deep into your heart and declare “I now let this go. And it is so.” Then place one corner of the piece of paper over the candle allowing the flame to light your page (throw the page into the empty bowl as it burns) watching the flames consume what you are releasing, the smoke taking your intention to the Universe. Please note: if your piece of paper struggles to light or burn, please consider if you are really ready to let this go! Only when you are willing to let go will the page burn – the faster the flames, the more willing you are to let it go.
    7. Then place your hands in the bowl of water. Signifying cleansing of the old and opening to the new.
    8. Remove your hands from the water and take a deep breath. Sit in silence for a moment. You may want to keep your candle burning for a while as you sit,allowing inspiration to spark.

    This is only a suggestion of a ritual. Use your intuition to guide you.

Closing:

  • Closing is saying what comes to mind.  This could be a prayer, a song, what comes to your heart.

May you enjoy your beautiful full moon journey.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Natasha

Ways to Attract Positive Energy Into One’s Home

by Natasha Botkin 

Positive energy flow hand

In my last blog, I spoke of ways to clear energies.  You have cleared the energies.  Now what?

  • One of the biggest ways to increase positive energy in one’s home is accepting and loving one’s self.  This not only raises the vibrational energies of your body, mind and soul, but also of your surrounding.  After all, we are energy beings having a human experience and we are what we live.
  • Be-eee Happy.  If you are living with or have lower negative vibrational energies.  This will be sent to your living environment as well.  It is like a never-ending vortex of negative energies.
  • Laugh and laugh often.  Laughter is a way to immediately raise vibrational energies into a positive state of being.
  • Provide greenery.  I do not mean, faux plants.  Bring forth living plants.  This will raise the energies and also clear the air on a routine basis.  A win-win for all.
  • Fresh flowers.  I have a bubble tea shop that I enjoy.  They get so excited when I stop by with my flowers from the farmer’s market.  Recently, I brought them flowers and the space immediately felt more energetic and their energies went through the roof with happiness.
  • Candles are a wonderful way to decrease negative energies while increasing positive energies at the same time.  The aroma of a candle is a bonus.  Many people also enjoy using Himalayan Salt Candle holders or lights.  This both clears and add energies.
  • Space is important.  Make sure that you have enough open space for you to move around.  It just may be time to declutter.  Clutter takes up space and creates a negative vibe.  One may wish to enjoy Feng Shui to help understand the free flow of a space.
  • Color is a great way to increase energy, ambiance and such.  Even if you enjoy a crisp white wall, a beautiful pink throw pillow can jazz up your sofa while increasing a positive flow of energy.
  • Open those blinds, window coverings.  Let the light in.  This will bring forth a warming moment and help you to feel sunny all over.
  • If you are able open up the windows and doors.  Mother gaia provides the most magical way to naturally clear away negative energies and allow the transference of fresh air, movement and positive energies.
  • Crystals are a natural way to clear and cleanse energy as well as increase vibrational energy.  Just be sure to clear your crystal with a dry sea salt bath, a water sea salt bath or the full moon.  (Please check and make sure that you have crystals that can handle a sea salt water bath, not all can and may disintegrate).
  • Spray your residence with a natural essential oil spray.  positive energy positive results
  • An old tradition is to place bowls of sea salt around the home; once you have left this out for the day, toss the used sea salt crystals in the garbage (Be sure to immediately take out the garbage, because one does not wish to undo what one just cleared).
  • Enjoy music.  Music does soothe the soul and will help raise the vibrations.  Now this is a peaceful, calm music; some music even if you love it, does not add positive energy.
  • Depending on the time of year, a fire in a fireplace or woodstove.  This helps to clear out the negatives, warm the home and bring forth new energies.
  • A water feature can also clear the air at the same time as adding positive energies.

I hope that you enjoy these ideas.  Happy raising the vibrational energy of your residence!

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Natasha
