Everyday Self Help & Self Care Tips and Tricks to Help Guide Us Back To Optimal Health and Happiness.

Prayers…

When I was a small child my Mom and I would pray before we went to sleep. It was the prayer that most children my age were hearing, it went like this.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, and if I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. If I should live for other days, I pray the Lord would guide my ways. I pray for… Then I would list the names of people, as many as I could think of. Besides keeping me awake by listing people it also had the same effectiveness as some do by counting sheep.

As I grew older/teen, my Mom didn’t come in to pray before I went to sleep because I was a night owl haunted by insomnia, so who knew when I actually was going to bed. Anyways, I continue to pray on my own and had my lists of people and then started to add my goals and want lists to those prayers. Also I may of added that I wanted to meet and marry Kirk Cameron (actor,1980’s).

When I went to the Navy, that prayer was literally the only thing consistent during bootcamp and my following tours. I knew when I hit the bunk that I would think that prayer and it felt that it somehow connected me to my family back home and saying all the names in my mind brought me comfort, connection and I felt that I was still doing my part. I never felt it was a religious act but more of a tool to stay connected to God, higher power and to the people I loved and cared about. I felt it also was a sort of meditation that relaxed me enough to actually go to sleep (or rest peacefully if insomnia was present).

After my Navy days I was going place to place trying to find my way and the next phase of life and that prayer was still consistent and in a way grounded me. My list of people grew as did my goals and wants too (no more Kirk Cameron but maybe for someone similar, lol). After meeting Brian (1998), and shortly after we had the most beautiful children ever, it was my true privilege and goal to teach them that prayer. As they grew, to listen to their little voices saying that prayer outloud was literally the answer to all my years of prayers coming back as the biggest blessing of my life. My heart filled with everlasting love and joy. Prayers over my children, for my children and with my children, an answered prayer and privilege! Sometimes taking the time to pray to not lose my temper was exactly the time I needed to gain more patience. Most parents are already praying and then just are not aware of it ,haha.

As they grew to teens our time praying time together faded, (I can’t stay up like I used too,haha) my consistent prayer has never left me. My lists of people (which now includes my niece and nephew and my cousins’ children) my wants and goals may have shifted but my prayer remains strong and fulfilling. Resting in bed at night with a good long prayer helps to also recount my gratefulness for all that I am and have.

My Mom has now passed (2010) and she joins the angels who listens to my prayers. I wouldn’t doubt that she says them with me and delights in the tradition and consistency of our prayer. 

My prayers for others and their healing, happiness and healthy well being is stronger these days, especially with Covid19 (2020), presidential change and everything that comes along with all of that. Right now it does feel that the only thing consistent and accountable is my prayers. I have added another element called Reiki, and sending long distance Reiki to others is literally like saying a prayer for them and sending them healing energy which is something prayers do anyways (my opinion).

My prayers not only happen before bedtime these days, my day prayers sound different but the same concept and my list of people and their needs does grow as our times and events change. My duty and service to serve others sometimes only needs to come in prayer form. If anyone reading this wants to be added to my list, please let me know. It would be my privilege and honor to pray for you and yours. Long distance Reiki is also always available, as is in person Reiki if you are local.

So if you are looking for something consistent in these trying times, try praying. Prayers come in so many forms, do what works for you. There is no right or wrong, no beliefs to believe in, nothing but you, your thoughts and a connection or source.

One time I prayed to and for the trees at Armstrong Woods to heal, remain strong and rooted and protect themselves from the CA wildfires, and that may every person who sees them finds their own healing, protection and strength.

If you have any questions or need help getting started with prayer, just contact me. Until then, I pray for all who visit my words here, may someone be served by this.

*Just a reminder that if you are having medical issues please seek professional help. Prayers work for healing alongside Medical treatment, not as a substitute.

…may angels watch me through the night and wake me with the morning light.

The Purpose of Life.

Have you ever asked yourself what is the purpose of life? What will make you the happiest? Who’s life will be touched besides your own?

At A Glance, scroll through the slideshow below. 7 main Chakras and their Healing and Balancing Crystals/Stones. Each stone has it’s own energy and benefits, that’s why there is more than one for each Chakra.

Any questions let me know. ~Rebecca

Chakra Grid with Crystals

Chakra grid. You would want to use this grid for healing and balancing your chakras.

Use a seed of life pattern.

Use chakra color related stones for this grid, every grid and stones may differ, in picture I used, Amethyst (crown chakra), Blue Aventurine (third-eye chakra), Lapis Lazuli (throat chakra), Green Aventurine (heart chakra), Yellow Aventurine (solar plexus), Peach Aventurine (sacral chakra) & Red Jasper (root chakra).

Have a Center stone such as amethyst or rose quartz.

The Clear quartz between each chakra stone pointing outwards from the center stone to direct the energy.

Put your name and intention on a piece of paper and under the Center Stone. (Personally I request/intention that all my chakras be attuned and balance and to remove any excess energy that does not serve my greater good. May it bring me to my Optimal Health and a great life of abundance in prosperity, wealth, love and happiness.)

Placing the patterns on a mirror reflects back the light and the colors, it is said to magnify the energy, but if you do not have a mirror it’s still works.

The stones on the grid are as follows and their benefits. You can vary the stones/crystals the you use for this grid that suits you and your needs. I used these in particular because they also had the Chakra symbol on them so it was easy to identify. Just like every person, grids are going to be different, unique and make it personal to your need. Need any help just contact me.

• Amethyst (Crown Chakra): has healing powers to help with physical ailments, emotional issues, and in Energy Healing and Chakra balancing.

I’m offering Long Distance Reiki. To get more information, read below.

Long Distance Reiki has exactly the same effect as an in person Reiki treatment. Reiki energy is form of Quantum Healing, so it is not limited to time or space and can easily be transmitted anywhere that it is needed and can also be sent to the future, and to future events if needed (pregnancy/birth, during an exam, interviews and medical procedures/surgeries, etc).

How Long Distance Reiki Sessions Work: We will arrange a time(time zone permitted) when you’re in a quiet place and able to relax for the session. I will conduct the Reiki session from my home in California while you’re relaxing in the comfort of your own home, wherever that may be. All you have to do is relax, acknowledge that Reiki will be sent and that you are open to receiving it and tune into the energy. You will receive the energy just as if I was there with you. It is best to schedule the session for when you’re at home. You may feel drowsy during the session. Also, if you schedule the session when you’re doing something else, you won’t be able to focus on yourself or the Reiki energy. Although the Reiki will still be sent at the time, you just want to give yourself the time to receive it fully.

It is highly suggested that you drink plenty of water before and after the session, to help with energy flow. To enhance the healing even more, you just need to relax, be in a comfortable position, breathe, light a candle or incense, pour a cup of tea, hold your favorite crystal and play relaxing music.

Benefits of Distance Reiki:

*You will receive the same benefits as if you came to an in person Reiki session.

*You do not have to sit in traffic, commute long hours or leave your home.

*If you are looking for energetic healing while preparing for or undergoing surgery or treatment.

*You work long hours and find it difficult to squeeze in an in person session.

*Pricing for a Long Distance Reiki session is lower than in person,if money is a concern.

Personally I try to go through a list of people and requests for Long Distance Reiki on Wednesdays & Fridays evenings, but that doesn’t always work for everyone, so if you have a better time, let me know. I will need your full name and your birthday, would be helpful for Numerology & Astrology references. Any names of others that you want Reiki sent too or for, and if any pets need. Also list any requests, illness, disease or specific needs for me to focus on when sending Reiki.

*You can think of Long Distance Reiki as a prayer someone is sending to you. This prayer can help you clear your mind, reduce anxiety, PTSD, grief, depression and physical pain, help you to feel more balanced mentally & emotionally and even help you sleep better. Studies have shown it can boost your immune system, lower blood pressure, relieve stress, balance hormones and help during pregnancy and birth. Today Cancer patient are using Reiki alongside their medical treatments.

The body works like nature. If it’s nourished and balanced, it will do what it naturally needs to do, or is programmed to do to achieve and keep optimal health. Long Distance Reiki also helps in directing energy toward specific goals, or simply working on one’s self-development.

* If you want more information on Reiki, Long Distance Reiki or the other Services that I offer, just let me know.

Love & Light and Everything Bright! ❤️Rebecca

Make a Wish

Go ahead and make a virtual wish on this dandelion. Sometimes the Universe doesn’t hear our exact wish the way we intended it.

I remember blowing a dandelion and making a wish, but then in my mind I would say, it probably wouldn’t come true anyway ,but it was worth a try. I just now had the realization that I was doubting my wish even before it took to the wind. Have you ever done that? Had a dream or wish but condemned it before it even had time to come to life?

There is this thought that if one’s vibration doesn’t match the wish or dream it probably won’t come to realization. If we adjust our vibrations to match what we dream that it would become our reality. If we condemn the wish or dream, we sabotage the vibration match and it will not come or happen. I wondered how I could come to the same vibrations as my wishes and dreams, then I remembered hearing someone say that if we imagine that we already have it then work backwards from there. Truly imagining being blessed with the wishes/dream and how it would feel and how my situations would look different. I started writing down how my wish/dream being true would impact my life. I tried to imagine and feel all the differences it would bring. That my friend, changes our vibrations to match our wishes and dreams! Get in the moment of having it already and watch it really unfold in reality. If you don’t believe me than try it. Change your vibrations, change your results, change your life!!!!!

May your wishes and dreams come true. ❤Rebecca

I always hear people saying they are just trying to get through it. I think if we spend more time trying to figure out how we can grow through it, Life would be more fulfilling. We have to be here so we might as well make it worth it right? If you think about what you have to learn while you’re here , let’s try to have some fun. They say that we are either the teacher or the student in different situations. Well at this time I feel like I’m here to learn everything I can and recycle that information and teacher to everyone else around me. So what I have learned thus far is that I don’t want to just go through life I want to grow through this life and while I’m here I’m going to make it worth it. I hope that you join me. I started doing videos on YouTube starting October 1 and I hope that you get a chance to go check it out. The name is under “Rebecca 4SelfHelp”. If you learn anything from me don’t forget to recycle that information and share it with your friends. Have a great day ❤️Rebecca
