Let’s Tone Up and Calm down

10867313-notes-musical-vector-background

Yesterday, I went for a hearing test and not to my surprise, I was told I have a ‘minor’ hearing loss. But I was also told my hearing will never get better than what it is now.  I was grateful for the hearing test but I do believe that our cells can heal.

So I am going to begin a daily program of ‘toning’.  Along with my tuning forks that I offer in my Reiki/Sound sessions, I am adding vocal toning exercises. I have used toning for years but I must admit I have not been consciously toning for awhile.  So I will begin again!  Any kind of spiritual or healing practice takes commitment and time each day. It is easy to get busy and ignore our own self!

Here are a few exercises to begin my toning practices that you may enjoy! I do them as I begin to meditate or sometimes on my morning walk.  Toning helps me to be calm, relaxed and hopefully will stimulate my left and right brain’s communication! Our cells need us to be calm and rested to heal.

Tonal Exercises

1.Stay with the rhythm of your heart and begin to hum…a low hum for a few minutes.  Then sit quietly and when you are ready hum for a few more minutes.

2. Then add a higher hum…then low hum…the higher hum…for a few minutes.  Caution! Your mind will tell you to stop and that this is silly.  Keep toning! What you are doing is getting into the rhythm of your own voice, mind and heart.  This is a tonal exercise and it stimulates all our cells and they respond to it.

3. You can tone the sound…hah…then ah..then ah…hah..  Also make sounds that feel good to you.  Who knows your body, mind and heart better than you.

4 Try out various tones and see what ones feel good for you.  When I meditate, I often ask “What tone do I need today” and I will hear a tone…

5 Try toning a vowel sounds..a,e,i,o,u.   So ‘a’ can tone a short a…ah or a long a vowel …a (says its name).

6. Try low toning sound and move higher to see what feels best.

Toning is Awesome!

Sound toning as you meditate is awesome!  Take some simple steps to remember the tones that your body, mind and spirit like!  Each day do one small thing you like to do.  Listen to music that calms if you are anxious or with a beat if you are feeling down.

There are many tonal exercises but the most simple are the best.  Toning opens the communication between our left brain and right brain.  It stimulates all our cells to vibrate at a higher, healthier vibration.  Over the centuries we have lost our innate healing abilities. I also love drumming and chanting! People have been drumming, chanting and toning from ancient times. Let’s return to the simplicity of our own tones.  Return to simplicity in everything we do.

Enjoy your daily ‘tune up’!

Peacefully, Jane

For years, during my meditation, I have listen to my inner voice. I began to record what I heard and I called them my ‘messages’. The message I am sharing today gave me the title for my book “In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation.” I love it still as it helps me as reminder not to hold on to thoughts, regrets or anger from the past. A good message, especially as I age and desire a time of peace. Allow light and love to embrace and to heal your mind and body each day! Listen ‘in silence’ for your messages to guide you.

The Light shines beyond the shadow
Move gently, my child, with grace
Be peaceful, tranquil, and joyous
Dance in the merriment
Feel your heart song singing
Lifting you to new heights
Discard that which no longer serves

Be still, listen
In peace and serenity
In silence, for messages of love

From In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation

It is a time to let go of the past and receive new thoughts and gifts into your life!  Be who you truly are! Beautiful you!

The full moon is radiating beautiful light to you.full moon 1

Tell me your secret!

Secretly we spoke,

that wise one and me. I said,

Tell me the secrets of the world.

He said, Shhh

Let silence tell you

the secrets of the world

~ Rumi

Explore your inner knowing to discover the ‘secrets of the world’ through daily meditation.  You will be amazed by what is revealed to you when you relax, quiet your mind and listen to your heart.  A wise person once said to me that I already have all the tools…the canvas, the paint and the brushes…to create the world I want.

We also have all the ‘secrets’ within to allow our true being to evolve into a loving, creative and peaceful person.  The world needs each of us to make this transformation.  Allow the wisdom you hear, see or feel during your meditations to assist you in your daily life.

Bring your wisdom and light into the world…don’t keep is a ‘secret’ any longer. Tell me your secret!

Peacefully, Jane

chief dan george

 Chief Dan George, OC (July 24, 1899 – September 23, 1981) was a chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, a Coast Salish band whose Indian reserve is located on Burrard Inlet in the southeast area of the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was also an actor (Little Big Man with Dustin Hoffman) poet and author; his best-known written work was “My Heart Soars”.

He has left us some beautiful thoughts about connecting with nature.

“The beauty the trees,the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, they speak to me.

The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the sea, speaks to me.

The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning, the dewdrop on the flower, speaks to me.

The strength of the fire, the taste of the salmon, the trail of the sun, and the life that never goes away, they speak to me.

And my heart soars.”

Chief Dan George

What will speak to you today as you tap into the beauty of nature?  We are finally hearing our Robins singing in our backyard and forests!  They make my heart lift and soar.

May your heart soar today in many wondrous ways!

When I look back on my life in reflection, I realize that at times I was wandering aimlessly.  The strange thing is that during these times I felt like I was making good choices and moving forward.  Now I know I was with those who did not understand me and I did not understand them.  They did not understand my search for my ‘self’. I did wander aimlessly until I moved into my heart and began to love my ‘self’…then my life began to have more purpose and meaning. I began to meet people with whom I could “sit under a tree in blossom”…and embrace the light!  I began my Happiness Circles that became my Peaceful Way gatherings and experienced greater peace and love.

Don’t wander aimlessly!
by Rumi

My heart, sit only with those
who know and understand you.
Sit only under a tree
that is full of blossoms.

In the bazaar of herbs and potions
don’t wander aimlessly
find the shop with a potion that is sweet
If you don’t have a measure
people will rob you in no time.
You will take counterfeit coins
thinking they are real.

Don’t fill your bowl with food from
every boiling pot you see.
Not every joke is humorous, so don’t search
for meaning where there isn’t one.
Not every eye can see,
not every sea is full of pearls.

My heart, sing the song of longing
like a nightingale.
The sound of your voice casts a spell
on every stone, on every thorn.
First, lay down your head
then one by one
let go of all distractions.

Embrace the light and let it guide you
beyond the winds of desire.
There you will find a spring, and nourished by it sea waters;
like a tree you will bear fruit forever.

• Ghazal (Ode) 563, from
Rumi’s “Divan-e Shams” (“The Collection of Shams”), by Kolin and
Mafi, and by Professor Arberry:
–Translation by Azima Melita Kolin
and Maryam Mafi
“Rumi: Hidden Music”
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 2001

Slide1

Today I welcome guest writer, Julie Redstone, “Movements of the Heart”

MOVEMENTS OF THE HEART

Julie Redstone
The human heart exists in beauty and in limitation.  Its beauty lies in the fact that it is capable of great love, great tenderness, and great vulnerability.  It’s limitation lies in the same fact.  Yet, the limitation of today is the expansion of tomorrow, as the heart begins to feel a greater Love moving within itself, and as it awakens more fully to its own power of expression.

The love that the human heart calls its own, the love that it seeks in order to satisfy its desires and hold at bay the sense of loneliness that would exist without it – such love is only a small portion of what the human heart is capable of.  Because of its need for self-protection, and because it perceives itself to be small when, in fact, it is quite large, the human heart fastens on the one love that it hopes will nourish its life and fill its empty spaces, instead of the larger Love that would restore to it the experience of its own wholeness.

The heart has been taught to expect certain things of life and to give certain things to life.  In this sense, it is influenced by current perceptions regarding the nature of relationships and the nature of love, and no longer knows its own potential.  It no longer realizes the vastness from which it came.  Such a heart often goes through its days confined within a small sphere of contact with others, not perceiving its relationship to the greater Whole, not perceiving the great Heart of humanity that beats within its own.  It therefore, understandably, seizes upon the experience of ‘falling in love’ with one other as the central experience of life, because this event lets it know more fully than anything else, what it means to be truly alive.

Yet, even this experience of love which is so profoundly moving and enriching to life can also be limiting.  It can limit the knowledge of what love IS, believing it to be embodied within one relationship, whereas in truth the intensity of love, the depth of love, the joy of love, and the tenderness of love, are part of what it means to be alive. These qualities belong to Love itself, and to the deeper nature of the heart as it brings its essence into everyday experience.

With a more awakened heart, it is possible to be deeply in love with life.  It is possible to deeply love one’s own being.  It is possible to become identified with love to such a degree that one wants to extend it everywhere.  These possibilities exist but must be awakened within the human heart.  They exist, but they must be perceived as real. 

The relationship with a beloved partner is one expression of limitless love. Such a relationship is often singled out among all others and asked to compensate the self for what is lacking in the rest of life. However, love is not meant to be confined within such small quarters.  For the deepest bonds of love between two who love resonate with the great harmonic of the universe.  They resonate with the music of Creation.  They are part of that Creation, and can only find their truest and most complete expression when experienced as part of a greater Whole.  Indeed, a complete partnership in love will seek to reach out to others – will seek to reach out to the world in order to bless it.  Part of this naturally happens through bringing new life into the world – through children and the contribution they make to the future.  Another part happens through the extension of love directly – through one’s conscious participation in the great circle of Life.

Many who love today still believe that love is limited and that there is not enough to go around.  Therefore, one must concentrate on the few who are the closest – on children, parents, family. and friends.  This perception of love is based on a heart that does not yet know itself.  It is based on past learning, not on what actually is. The perception of the smallness of the human heart arises out of the history of separation from the wellspring of Infinite Love and the Spirit that dwells within all.  Nevertheless, this well remains, and the water is still there.  And those who look for it will find it within and can allow it to enrich the life that they lead. 

For each human heart holds within itself a spark of the Divine.  And each human heart is capable of embracing not only others, but its own existence as well. This is the love out of which the human heart has been fashioned which contains the Divine within the human. This is the love that is meant to encircle the earth, and to restore and nourish all of life.
