Goddess: Butterfly Maiden

Butterfly Maiden – Transformation

“You are experiencing enormous change right now, which brings great blessings.”

What a card as we approach 21/12.

Butterfly Maiden is a Hopi Native American spirit. She ensures that our crops flourish and our harvests are bountiful. She is associated with Spring and will herald transformation, new beginnings and a new start.I believe this card has appeared today to remind us to be prepared for the shifts and changes that we will be facing. Doreen Virtue says one of the meanings of this card is “Don’t be concerned about endings, as they are bringing in the new for you”. Many people find the unknown scary and will often find it hard to move on, preferring to hold onto that which they feel is safe and familiar even when it no longer serves them well. But from that place we will not grow and learn. Sometimes we must have the courage to take that leap of faith, to challenge ourselves and to allow ourselves a new way of thinking and doing.

Goddess Maeve – Cycles and Rhythms

Maeve is a warrior Goddess of Ireland and it is said she worshipped at the ancient mystical site of Tara. She is also a Goddess of sovereignty, fertility, personal power and of the earth and this card tells us to:

“Honor the cycles of your body, energy levels, and emotions”

What better message to give today as people are gearing up for Christmas. What does Christmas mean for you – excitement, joy , giving to those special people in your life? Or maybe it is stress, tension, strain, arguments, pressure? But whether Christmas is great for you or very hard, this card reminds us of the importance to take care of ourselves – to love ourselves and honour what our needs are. How many of us truly look after ourselves? It’s all too easy to put our needs on the back burner so as to look after children, partners, parents but if we aren’t OK that how can we look after anyone else. A wise friend said remember why flying we are always told to put on our own oxygen masks before helping others.

So remember you deserve your own love and care. Honour what you need physically and emotionally, and look after your energy levels – if you need to take a break then take it – put your feet up with a cuppa for half an hour! I bet you’ll achieve much more after that much needed break and all the preparation will still all be done in time.

With love and blessings

Kali – Goddess of the Day

KALI says

“The old must be released so that the new can enter”

 

Kali bring about the death of the ego – she is Guardian, Protectress and Mother and will help us through the process of letting go of those things  that no longer serve us.

It seems a very appropriate card at this time – as 21st December 2012 approaches. Have you, like so many others, had a whirlwind year of changes and moving on? Some people thrive on changes but very often, however good new beginnings might be they can be scary and we must stay calm and focused to follow through. We usually have to let go of stuff in order to move on and letting go can be even harder, But remember letting go of that which no longer serves us or makes us happy is the way to our growth and happiness. Yes, it can be hard, but the benefits be reap can be.
Love and blessings

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a massage technique that is based on old Ayurvedic practices. Traditionally it was used in Indian homes by wives and mothers. It has played an important part in their daily lives for over a thousand years, being used on a daily basis for relaxation, healing and to relieve tension. Oils would be used which helped with conditioning hair and the choice of oils would be made according to the season. The techniques were passed from generation to generation.  It was given the name ‘Champissage’ or ‘Champi’, which is where we get our modern term ‘Shampoo’ from

When coming for a treatment with me, the first thing is that you are getting out of a busy and often very stressful environment so my treatment rooms offer you the opportunity to escape just for a while into a space that is just for you.

After that the Indian Head Massage treatment takes over. It relaxes the mind and works on the upper chakras – the crown, the brow, the throat chakra and the heart chakra which helps clear the blockages which helps to increase energy flows and allows the body to heal. As our chakras work from top to bottom as we clear the upper chakras healing will flow to the lower chakras and unblock them.

Narendra Mehta was born in Gujarat in 1947 and brought up in Mumbai, India. He travelled to England in the 1970s to study. He was surprised when the Champissage was left out of his visit to the barbers so as he was missing his previously regular massages so went to a massage therapist. But whilst he received a full body massage, his head was left untouched. So in 1978 he returned to India to study Champissage and travelled around India learning different techniques. From this knowledge he put together his own routine for an Indian Head Massage and returned to England where4 began to introduce what we know as Indian Head Massage. In an interview he once said:

“My object is my hands, because, being blind, I see with my hands and I work with my hands. Instead of two eyes, I’ve got ten eyes – my ten fingers are my eyes. My profession is based on the skill of my hands, and the health of my hands.”

He opened his clinic, the London Centre of Indian Champissage (head massage) in 1990.

Routines taught are based on Narendra Mehta’s massage although there is some variation. For me, each Indian Head Massage is slightly different as I work intuitively and will provide what I feel my client needs.
