No matter where we’re at in our love lives, some quiet time nourishing our inner selves will support the relationships most important to us. Try this simple meditation...
Give yourself five or ten minutes to centre yourself. Sit quietly and focus on your breath to become calm and relaxed. In that relaxation, imagine an inner light coming from your solar plexus (just above your belly). This is your own inner self shining out into the world. Take a moment to get a feeling of your inner energy flowing into the world. What is the feeling of this energy? Is there a particular colour, sound, movement or even picture you associate with this energy? Rest in the inner light for a few more minutes. Then let your awareness expand beyond your own body to feel all the different sensations and feelings around you. Recognize that all these feelings, sensations, perceptions represent different paths that you can choose to focus your awareness on. Contained within every second is a multitude of various options for you to choose to take. Wait until you feel a pull in a certain direction, a tendency for your awareness to focus on one particular feeling or sound and sit with that feeling for a few moments. Allow any thoughts, images or associations to come through your mind - don’t edit or try to interpret what you feel - simply let the images or feelings move through your mind. When you feel ready, bring your awareness back into your body and slowly come back into your normal waking mind.
The beginning of a new year is always a great time to start new and exciting dimensions on our personal road in life. The ‘New Year’s Resolution’ offers us hope for change and to better ourselves as individuals. Often throughout our lives, we go through transitional stages, some good and some not so good. The good times are welcoming and it keeps us enthusiastic and full of our zest for life. But as cliche'd as it sounds, life is sometimes no walk in the park, and unfortunate things happen to us that can seem to set us back sometimes days, months and even years at a time.
Meditation has played an important part in many people’s lives for a very long time. It’s been around for thousands of years, and for good reason. If it was of no use whatsoever I’m quite sure it would have never stood the test of time.
You don’t have to be a bald Buddhist monk to enjoy its benefits either. You could be an everyday 9-5 office worker – meditation has its place in everyone’s life. Here we’re going to look at 4 benefits of this peaceful art.
Whilst many people say that heading out and doing some exercise is the best way to kill stress, there is another way - one that involves sitting. Studies have shown that meditation can help reduce stress levels. So if you come home from work feeling bogged down and with the weight of the world on your shoulders, take a seat, cross your legs and meditate.
You’ll soon feel as relaxed as can be.
Dull your pain
Although we’d never admit it, most of the time when we’re in pain a lot of it is in our head. You know what I mean – you fall and cut your hand or knee. It doesn’t really hurt until you look at it. All that blood, the skin hanging off. That’s when the pain kicks in.
People who practice mindful meditation find pain much less unpleasant. This has been looked at in depth through studies.
According to another study, mindful mediation can also increase a person’s empathy for others. Think about it. If you know someone who meditates how often do you find that they judge other people? I’m going to guess and say it isn’t very often. They’re usually great listeners and love to help. Just like us here at Origin Psychics.
The University of Utah found that people who practice meditation usually get a better night’s sleep than those who don’t. This may be because of all the other benefits we’ve listed here. If you’re having trouble slipping into the land of nod then try meditating.
If these 4 things don’t persuade you to at least try meditating I don’t know what will!
Many people think that physical readings are the best way to go in the psychic world. And this is true, but only partly. Psychic readings can be conducted in many different forms, each of which have their own varying benefits.
One of these methods that’s quickly growing in popularity are phone readings. Here we’re going to look at 4 advantages of phone readings to help you decide if they’re right for you.
One of the biggest hurdles with psychic readings is that people don’t like to divulge their innermost thoughts with strangers. It’s a difficult thing to do, especially face to face. Although the psychic will need some basic information about you to help, they’ll never know your address or the face behind the voice.
This means that you can receive help whilst retaining complete anonymity which is a plus for many.
No need to travel
Suppose you’ve found a psychic who you feel you can really connect with. Someone who is in tune with what you’re thinking. The problem is, they’re on the other side of the world. You aren’t going to fly all the way there for a couple of readings are you?
With a phone reading you can enjoy help from some of the best psychics going, without ever having to leave your living room. If you’re at work and need guidance then they’re just a quick phone call away.
Remember though, you must understand the times that it’s appropriate to call. I doubt they’ll appreciate a midnight phone call! Saying this though, some psychics make themselves available 24/7 so whenever you need help, they’re there.
For most people, fitting a meeting in with a psychic can’t happen. Between heading off to work, picking the kids up from school, cleaning the house and running out for the shopping there’s just no time! A phone reading, as we mentioned earlier, is as flexible as can be. You could be strolling round the supermarket talking to your psychic, receiving all the guidance you need.
No cold reading
Unfortunately there are many imposters out there claiming they’re psychics but who actually perform cold readings. Cold readings rely on visual clues to help them ‘perform’. A true psychic doesn’t need these things. This is why many reputable readers offer phone services. They don’t need to see you to help. They use their natural abilities.
So, the next time you’re considering a psychic why not try a phone reading? It isn’t for everybody, but you may find help in it.
The Medicine Wheel can be a visual representation of your energy, and you can make your own. The Different native American tribes (North American) made their own medicine wheels based on the animals and plants that grew in their locality. The medicine wheels that one finds on the internet are not the only medicine wheels, but can be used as a guideline to make your own. There have been between 70 to 150 medicine wheels found, and most of them found in Alberta, Canada. Tailoring or making your own medicine wheel personalizes and energizes it to suit you. The ancient native meaning was for healing, although there are spiritual and ritual medicine wheels. The Medicine wheel brought balance to a person, and it went to the issue that caused the imbalance, instead of dealing with the symptoms. Of course, there is a sacred meaning too, but that is not usually shared with non-native people.
Are you a Shamanka? The word Shaman comes from the Evenk (Russian) people, to mean ‘Healer’. It is now used widely to describe anyone who uses divination, mediumship, talking with spirits of plants and animals, among other methods, to bring healing. ‘Shamanka’ is the term used to describe the female Shaman, and the energy of the Shamanka is becoming stronger as more women are connecting with their innate ability to heal, understand and work with spiritual energy.
There was a convergence recently of two interlinked issues coming to the forefront recently in the News. First, was the news about Angelina Jolies decision to have a double mastectomy. Many in the alternative healing field were negative about her decision to do this, stating different therapies she could have tried. I believe that Angelina is a smart woman, and she probably has looked and done many of the things that are suggested in alternative medicine.

If you Google 'benefits of sleep' you will get thousands of articles on how much we need sleep, how it helps reduce stress, we will feel better, we feel more balanced, in better health and so on.
There is enough information already provided that we need sleep. Yet, within the western society code of behaviour, sleeping too much is often perceived to be a bad thing. This is a societal paradigm, inherent in the way we organize our days: so many hours of work and then so many hours proscribed for sleep.
In this world of busy-ness, where we rush to meet deadlines, to keep up with paperwork, run to catch the bus, hurriedly shove a sandwich down at lunchtime while working on a report - where is the time for honouring our self - that deeper part of us, which gets pushed aside "until we have time", the part of us that yearns just to sit in a quiet room with a good book, or go for a long walk in nature without the mobile phone?
