Spiritual Treatments

We love to be pampered, to feel relaxed, and taken care of. Who doesn’t?

Here, at Spiritual Beauty it is considered a necessity. One of those acts which is deserved of tender loving care, commonly known as tlc. So when you come to see us, we sit you down in a nice comfortable chair, put your feet up, so that you can lay back and relax.

We discuss what it is that you are looking for – what kind of treatment would you prefer for the day. Then, we slip on some gentle meditation background music and allow you to relax even more.

Perhaps you would like a healing Reiki treatment for something specific. Or an all over Reiki treatment for the loving joy of feeling the energy come from without to within.

Why not come and relax to a soothing hand and foot ex-foliation scrub and balm. Allow your senses to unwind, with gentle massage, luxuriating in a peaceful atmosphere.

It is all up to you – to stay as you are, or to come for a pick me up. Sorry, these pampering treatments cannot be given over the phone, or internet. However we do offer distant healing as well.

Chakra Workshop

THE CHAKRAS

The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. If we were able to see chakras (as many seers and psychics, in fact, do) we would observe a wheel of energy continuously revolving or rotating.

And each chakra rotates at a different speed.

One of the reasons that many people fall ill is because their chakras become out of alignment, they are ‘imbalanced’ or there are blockages, which restrict the free, flow of the body’s energy.

There are seven major chakras (and dozens of minor ones). For simplicity I intend to concentrate upon these seven chakras. They are as follows: –

  • First Chakra                 – base of the spine
  • Second Chakra             – sacral
  • Third Chakra                – solar plexus
  • Fourth Chakra             – heart
  • Fifth Chakra                 – throat
  • Sixth Chakra                – third eye (brow)
  • Seventh Chakra           – crown

These chakras all play an extremely active role in all our crystal healing treatments.

As already mentioned any ‘imbalances’ that exist within any chakra may have profound effects upon either our physical or physiological bodies. We are able to use our quartz crystals to re-balance all our chakric centres and once the chakra has been properly balanced then our body will gradually return to normality.

First Chakra – The first chakra is located at the bottom of the spine. This is where the kundalini is situated. This chakra is associated with the Colour red. It is a very important centre as it has so much effect upon the rest of the body. I find personally that I am able to release a great deal of the physical stress and tension of the nervous system by working on the base chakra with my quartz crystals.

Second Chakra – The second chakra is located within an area bounded by the spleen and sexual centre. This chakra is associated with the Colour orange. Usually people suffering   from sexual blockages need healing here.

Third Chakra – The third chakra is the solar plexus and is located just below the navel. This chakra is associated with the Colour yellow. There is often a great amount of physical energy and power within this chakra or emanating from it. This chakra is also the psychic store – house of mystical energy and is the energy centre used by materialisation mediums for producing ectoplasm and other psychic manifestations.

Fourth Chakra – The fourth chakra is the heart centre. It is located in an area in the centre of the chest, between the two nipples. The colours associated with this chakra are green and pink. I use the heart chakra to help people suffering from emotional traumas and problems in their relationships. I find that by using a piece of rose quartz I am able to help release their inner emotional tension and trauma.

Fifth Chakra – The fifth chakra is the throat centre. It is located in an area, which corresponds to the centre of the throat. The colours associated with this chakra are either blue or turquoise when people suffer from headaches (perhaps migraine) and tension within the neck and shoulder muscles I find that often the basic cause is that the throat chakra has become blocked.

Sixth Chakra – The sixth chakra is the third eye. This chakra is located between the two brows on the forehead. The Colour most associated with this chakra is purple. When helping people to develop their own spiritual intuition I find that amethyst, sodalite, lapis lazuli or Sugilite are ideal stones with which to work.

Seventh Chakra – The seventh chakra is the crown centre. This chakra is located on the top of the head. The Colour associated with this chakra is white. During any crystal healing session this chakra needs to be open. It is the chakra through which you obtain the highest understanding and the highest knowledge.

To balance the chakras I use the following technique. First I have my patient lying down on their back. I then place two quartz crystals on the third eye chakra, points facing downwards. Two quartz crystals I put on the palm, points upwards; two quartz crystals on the breast area, points upwards; and two quartz crystals placed on the top of the thighs, point upwards. If the patient lies quietly on his or her back for about 15 minutes, the chakras will quickly re-align themselves without much channelling needing to be done.

There are various layouts that can be used for each chakra also, when using crystals as a method of healing. I have outlined these below and the way in which each crystal should be pointing. If your patient needs healing in any of the chakras, these layouts are suggested.

Base Chakra

Place four clear quartz crystals in alignment so that they form an outline of a square. Each crystal should be placed pointing outwardly from each corner. Then place four dark tourmaline crystals in between each of the quartz crystals so that they are pointing outward and are shown as North, South, and East & West. In the middle, place a red stone. This layout can be used both on and off the body. It can be placed to cover the whole area of the hips and base of spine. Or they can be place in between the legs close to the base of the spine. This layout is designed to help release the stress and encourage healing. It can support and enhance the natural functioning of this centre.

Sacral Charka

Here are two layouts which can be used with each other to release stress, blocks and trauma as well as detoxify the whole system. This layout will stimulate this chakra and can be placed on the lower abdomen area. The first is a downward pointing triangle made up of three clear stones such as quartz, or rutilated quartz. Below this triangle are another three stones which form a downward pointing arc, slightly wider than the triangle. In this one, you may choose three stones of moonstone, rose quartz, lapis lazuli, aquamarine or amethyst. 

Solar Plexus

This one will enhance energy flow throughout your body to enable your other chakras to be free-flowing. You may arrange the following stones on the upper abdomen between the lower edge of the ribcage near the diaphragm and the navel. Make an upward-pointing triangle of three citrine crystals (or gems) with points facing outward. In the centre of this triangle place one of the following: Tiger Eye; Ruby; Garnet; Jasper or Iron Pyrite. The stone you place here will determine the quality of energy being balanced. For instance, Garnet and Ruby will energise while Jasper and Pyrite will ground and aid the digestion. Tiger Eye will ground and encourage practical social skills. Surrounding these four stones, make another triangle, with three garnets pointing downwards.

Throat Chakra

The throat chakra is connected to the mind therefore it is important in all aspects of education, learning, understanding and knowledge. This one is to rebalance the throat chakra near the sternum. Close beneath this near the thymus gland, put a turquoise gem. Below this, on the breastbone, set a downward pointing clear quartz crystal. Finally on each side of the uppermost blue stone, place a crystal with double terminations of points at each end. (These can be any sort of stone as long as they are both the same type of stone)

Brow Chakra

This chakra is very sensitive and you must place stones with caution so as not to block the Third Eye. Place your layout for the Brow Chakra accordingly. In the centre of the forehead, place either a Herkimer Diamond or a Lapis Lazuli. On each side of it, set a small fluorite crystal of any colour. These should be positioned approximately at the centre of the eyebrows. Another fluorite goes right above the first central stone. An optional blue or violet fluorite can be added near the top of the head by the crown.

The Crown Chakra

For this chakra, I like to use quartz crystals myself. I use one centrally at the top of the crown, then one on each side of this one, all pointing upward and outward away from the crown. This directs the excess energy away from the crown, and thus away from the person. It is ideal to rid oneself of extra – static electricity as the clear quartz will neutralize and thus balance the crown chakra.

After you have completed each of these steps in clearing the chakras and find that your patient has well balance chakras, you may wish to further enhance the session by first using a quartz wand side on so as to “pick up” any excess energy – good, bad or indifferent that is unbalanced. A quick “wipe-over” with a rose quartz or aventurine wand will also give the finishing touches whilst clearing the person’s aura also.

For those of you are attuned to Reiki/Seichim energies you can now use your special healing powers to further the healing experience.

Good luck and Bright Blessings

Runes 15th January 2013

The Runes have always mystified me. I have owned a few sets of runes in my life-time, though never really actually sat down to familiarise myself with them properly. They are filled with grounding mysticism and so I thought it would be a great way to introduce myself with them here. I invite you on this journey as we delve and interpret these ancient of all stones.

For today’s reading, I chose to cast out three stones. This is usually for the past, present and future. However today, our enquiry is slightly different. As I unearth the interpretation of each of the cast out runes, you will come to understand my gist.

The Warrior God
The Warrior God

This rune symbolises new challenges and initiations into new understandings. Fearlessness is called for here as victory is assured. Not of a fight, rather from a challenge that has recently come to you. It is a time to stop studying and bring your expertise to the fore. Put your experiences and intuition to the front of your soul and put into practice what you know to do. The Warrior must learn many skills including patience, keenness of sense, speed and agility. He must be of a good and strong heart, with a firm belief in the sacredness of that which he protects.

A Gift
A Gift     

A Gift is coming to you which presents you with a choice. To either accept it or reject it. To accept it is to accept a give and take – a yin/yang of The Universe. Spiritually it is always worth entering this “transaction” and taking on the gift, for the journey is new and one to be experienced. You must be willing to give in return for the gift that has been received. It does not mean necessarily to return one to the gift giver, yet to give to another in kind is required. To receive a gift spiritually, it must be done with total humility, knowing that to abuse it is to lose it. Compassion is a sharing of the gift of understanding.

A Torch
A Torch

You are now entering a new understanding of life and its meaning. New insights await you, yet this is not a time for complacency. Use this new understanding or it will be worthless to you. Illumination allows one to see in the dark. Enlightenment is a spiritual illumination. It is coming to a new understanding, like opening your eyes for the first time and truly seeing what is really there. As though you are seeing it for the first time. Enlightenment needs to be tempered with wisdom before its true worth and power can be known.

So, for this day, make the most of the new journey. You are experiencing it all for the first time. As though this is a new day of the rest of your life. Accept all the knowledge, the wisdom and understandings that will come your way and lead you to the path of enlightenment.

Namaste

Deck Chosen: Osho Zen
Card Chosen: 5 – The Outsider – Rainbows: The Physical

Traditional Meaning: The small child in this card is standing on one side of a gate looking through it. He is so small, and so convinced that he cannot get through, he cannot see that the chain holding the gate is not locked; all he has to do is open it.
If you are feeling like an outsider – it is not bad, yet good. It is the transitory period. Now you have to be alert not to fill yourself with pain and misery. Be strong and stand on your feet. The only way to be connected with existence is to go inwards, because there at the centre you are still connected.

Intuitive Meaning: As we stand on one side of the gate to the world – whether it be on the inside, or the outside, we still are looking toward something that seems beyond our reach. We perceive the obstacles that are not necessarily there, even though they may appear that way. So we stay, instead of taking the opportunity to simply open the unlocked gate, enter into the unknown and explore further. Today is the time to open that gate, and walk through. Be happy and feel the freedom of exploring another side to your world that you perceived to be blocked from you.

Cards Chosen: Osho Zen

Card: The Master

His Disciples gather around him to soak up his presence and to be inspired..
His Disciples gather around him to soak up his presence and to be inspired..

Official Meaning: The Master in Zen is not a master of others, yet a master of himself. His every gesture and his every word reflect his enlightened state. He has no private goals, no desire that anything should be other than the way it is. His disciples gather around him, not to follow him, rather to soak up his presence and be inspired by his example. In his eyes, they find their own truth reflected, and in his silence, they fall more easily into the silence of their own beings.
The Master welcomes his disciples, not because he wants to lead them, but because he has so much to share. Together they create an energy field that supports each unique individual in finding his or her own light.
Beyond Mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic, that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea – and there is no experiment up to now that has found any center in the brain which corresponds awareness. The whole work of meditation is to make you aware of all that is “mind” and dis-identify yourself from it. That very separation is the greatest revolution that can happen to man.

Intuitive Meaning: The Master is full of wisdom, truth, and true meaning – or knowledge. He is the very epitome of the ancient, tranquility that does not need to impress, yet inspires the consciousness to profound understanding of The Universe and all that there is. He is simply here – in the NOW that is. He is all knowing, all seeing, and all hearing. It is the little nuances that happen in life which are nurtured and grown within him, to inspire to others their aspirations of life. I am The Master.
