The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Hearts of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men --
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

~Alice Bailey

An Indian Prayer

Whose voice I hear in the winds
And whose breath gives life to everyone,
Hear me!
I come to you as one of your many children
I am weak, I am small, I need your wisdom
And your strength.
Let me walk in beauty
And make my eyes ever behold
The red and purple sunsets.
Make my hands respect things
You have made and make my ears sharp
So I may understand what you have taught
My people and the lessons which are hidden
In each leaf and in each rock.
I ask for wisdom and strength,
Not to be superior to my brothers,
But to be able to fight my biggest enemy
Make me ever ready
So I may come before you with
Clean hands and straight eyes
And as life is fading away
Like a fading sunset,
My spirit may come to you
Without shame.

About Me

The Laying On Of Hands
By Shirley Gibson
I can't remember a time when I wasn't fascinated with shamanism, magick, meditation, and alternative healing methods. Most of my life has been spent in a course of self study that includes just about every healing modality there is. I have worked with sound, color, scent, mantras, medicine wheels, dreams, and journeys in mind and spirit.

While I do have some formal training, much of what I know has been the result of stumbling around in the dark, trying what works, discarding what doesn't. I love exploring strange territories, enjoy new ideas, and find myself climbing out of the box on a regular basis.

Through the years, I have studied and practiced: Meditation, Mantras, Hinduism, Yoga, Astrology, Palmistry, Herbology, Ayurveda, Nutrition, Buddhism, Numerology, The Tarot, Runes, Taoism, Medicine Wheels, Native American Spirituality, Fire Walking, Dream Interpretation, Exploring The Dreamtime, Crystals and Stones, Art As Process, Drumming, Prayer, Angelic Intervention, The Violet Flame, Reiki, Psychic Surgery, Hypnotherapy, Light Language, Sacred Geometry, Color Therapy, Labyrinths, Subtle Energy Fields, Chakra Balancing, Aromatherapy, Shamanism, Animal Communication, Magick, Tea Leaves, Feng Shui, Ho'Oponopono, Creative Visualization, Chanting, and more.

I received my Reiki Master training and certification in 1997 from William Lee Rand of the International Center for Reiki training in Southfield, Michigan, and have been teaching Reiki ever since.

Other trainings include:
  • Certification in Hypnotherapy from the Missouri Institute of Hypnotherapy - 2000
  • Light Language Intensive with Richard Gordon - 2002
  • A course of study with the Deer Tribe Metis Society - 2001 thru 2003
  • Advanced Shaman Training with Jodi ShinKara Bottiger  -2002
  • The study of Subtle Energy Fields with Laura Mead - 2002
  • Sweatlodge Building workshop with Eagleman Ed McGaa - 2003
  • Raindrop Therapy with Janalea Hoffman - 2010
  • Uses of Color in Healing home study course - 2010
  • Became a Oneness Blessing Giver - 2010
The purpose of this blog is to share what I have collected over the years so that it doesn't just sit in a box or a filing cabinet unread and unexplored. Feel free to share what you find of interest. Links to this site are always appreciated.

Discovering Fire

Someday after we have mastered the air, the winds, the tides and gravity, we will harness for God the energies of love. And then for the second time in the history of the world man will have discovered fire.

~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

The Way of the Miracle Worker

The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behavior as one of two things:
either love, or a call for love.

~Marianne Williamson

The Key of B and the 7th Chakra

The Key of B is traditionally associated with the Seventh Chakra, also called the Crown Chakra. The Seventh Chakra is the seat of the essence of integration, unification and completion. When the Crown is opening and flowing, the experience is profound. Feelings of completion and wholeness arrive, along with a deep sense of fulfillment, the type of comfortable satisfaction that comes when you are happy and secure with who you are.

When the Seventh Chakra is blocked and bound, a sense of mental agitation stemming from not being able to "see the forest for the trees" can overwhelm you. Confusion and doubt are often present, stemming from an inability to focus o the task at hand.

The open Crown will give you the understanding of how to integrate your diverse experiences and perceptions into a unified whole. You'll find yourself easily able to focus simultaneously on the whole and its constituent parts. And most of all, the work of opening the Seventh Chakra creates the experience of oneness and clarifies your understanding of surrender and acceptance, the last steps toward becoming your essential self.

Here's a video of Piano Improvisations in B Major, for more ideas on music in the key of B, see this list of compositions in the key of B, and also Jazz compositions in the key of B.


The Key of A and the 6th Chakra

The Key of A is traditionally associated with the Sixth Chakra, or the Third Eye Chakra. The Sixth Chakra is the seat of the essence of clarity, open mindedness and seeing the truth. It is no coincidence that this center is located in the brow, in the "place between the eyes" Indeed, the sixth center is the most famous of all Chakras - the Third Eye. When the Sixth Chakra is open and free flowing you experience a sense of clarification and let go of judgmental attitudes that produces anger, fear and resentment. Appreciation born of the ability to see things as they truly are tailors your outlook on life.

When the Sixth Chakra is blocked you will often experience feelings of anger, doubt and fear. Judgmental bias or dogmatic attitudes are usually present, states of mind the generally lead to an inability to make commitments. The need for clarification and reassurance is very present when this center is blocked. Working to open the Sixth Chakra will bring forward an understanding of what it means to see clearly, without the energies of bias and judgment clouding your perspective and influencing your thinking and then your actions.

In this music video, Bob Marley sings "Is This Love?" a reggae tune in the key of A. For classical music in the key of A, see this list of compositions in the key of A.
