June 2007, Issue 54 ~ Healing Symbols

I do not know whether I was a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man. ~ Chuang-tzu

Ken planted several butterfly bushes in our yard a couple years ago which have tripled in size to our delight. They now stand taller than us. As summer approaches (in our part of the world), we await the return of the butterflies and any transitions these wonderful creatures may symbolize for us. In Shamanism, the butterfly is a totem animal symbolizing change, joy and color. It is the symbol of the soul. What healing symbols are popping up in your life these days? Might it be time for those of you who have taken Reiki Level 1 to learn the three healing symbols taught in Reiki Level 2? Are there healing symbols appearing in your night-time dreams - beckoning to be unraveled? Is a totem animal appearing in your life, dreams, or meditations ready to assist you somehow? Are the angels leaving feathers in your path?

See if one of the articles or courses below might help you uncover the meaning of the healing symbols presenting themselves to you this month.

Interpreting Your Personal Dream Symbols
Interpreting Your Personal Dream Symbols
By Laura Grace

Just like dream characters, every dream symbol represents a part of you. In fact, each symbol is you. Quite often, one dream symbol stands out in each dream. This symbol is a key factor and is worthy of your attention and understanding. Sometimes personal dream symbols set the tone or "theme" for the dream. For example, if you dreamt of making the bed with your partner, the dream symbol that stands out is "bed" and "partner" and may imply you need to work on some intimacy issues within your relationship.

Feng Shui Symbols for Your Health Center
Feng Shui Symbols for Your Health Center
By Deborah Redfern

There are enhancements you can make to your Center area of your home that can help you feel more grounded and balanced in all areas of your life. The Center of the Bagua Map is a neutral area which serves to connect all the other areas together. It is also related to your physical health and is connected with the element of earth - nurturing, stable, centering energy. Traditionally, the symbol used to represent the Center of the bagua is the T'ai Chi, which depicts male and female energy - the yang and the yin, day and night. It also represents the... Read on.

stars   Terrific Manifestation Tool! A Message from June Cook...
I think a bunch of you are going to love this one! It's easy, affordable, and AMAZING. It's called the Dream Wizard. In about 3 minutes, I purchased, downloaded and typed in a goal, added a photo to represent that goal and recorded my own voice claiming my dream. Now it pops up on my computer screen every 2 hours to remind me of what I am manifesting. No kidding! It makes me so happy every time it pops up! Check it out here.

stars   A Message from our Friend Meg North Taylor, Founder of Lending Promise
At Lending Promise, we envision a world in which mothers in every village can adequately feed their children - both their mouths and minds - so young people can dream of possibility rather than limits, of beauty instead of squalor; of dignity and not shame. We give small loans known as microcredit to mothers in some of the world's poorest villages, in regions where human assistance has been insufficient for making a lasting impact. Could you help by making a small donation to help these women? Visit www.lendingpromise.org today and learn more.

Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.

A self-publisher is an author who pays for the cost of designing, printing, and distributing his or her book. Frequently, the author invents and registers a publishing 'imprint.' Self-published books are the property of the author and usually remain in the author's possession; all sales proceeds belong to the author. ~ Moira Allen, editor of Writing-World.com

Coping with Illness: A Coping Blurb
By Arthur Soissons-Segal, Ph.D. ~ Therapist and brain tumor survivor

Serious illness or disability is a family affair. It reaches out and like a powerful magnet it pulls the emotional strings of all who live within its reach. My disabilities affect my wife's daily life as it does mine. We no longer are able to take long walks due to my poor balance, a symptom of neuropathy and of spinal stinosis. I fatigue easily and may show exhaustion by 10 p.m. This limits our participation in... Read on.

Closing Thoughts

This Month's Holistic Prayer  

This Month's Holistic Prayer

Some believe if you whisper a wish upon a butterfly's wings, that wish will be carried to the heavens to be granted.

~*~ The Butterfly ~*~
Transmutation, Dance of Joy
The butterfly is the symbol of change, joy and color.
It is the symbol of the soul.
They remind us that life is a dance,
not to take things quite so seriously.
They also remind us to get up and move.
Dance brings the sweetness of life.
Butterflies bring color and joy to your life.
Look at them and remember what joy is in your life,
if its a lot or a little, it is still joy.
They teach us that growth and transformation does not have to traumatic;
it can occur gently, sweetly, joyfully.
If a butterfly totem has shown up in your life,
make note of the most important issues in your life,
and see what needed to changed.
~ Lin Oberlin
