Andrew Weil, M.D. Since breathing is something we can control and regulate, it is a useful tool for achieving a relaxed and clear state of mind.
The Smudging Ceremony Our Native elders have taught us that before a person can be healed or heal another, one must be cleansed of any bad feelings, negative thoughts, bad spirits or negative energy - cleansed both physically and spiritually. This helps the healing to come through in a clear way, without being distorted or sidetracked by negative "stuff" in either the healer or the client. The elders say that all ceremonies, tribal or private, must be entered into with a good heart so that we can pray, sing, and walk in a sacred manner, and be helped by the spirits to enter the sacred realm.

Astrology Insights Current Transits As the planets of our solar system orbit around the Sun, they move into mathematical relationships with one another. These relationships are called "transits." Why do we need psychic protection? I had lunch with a friend today who says she needs to learn to protect herself at work more because she is being drained by some of those people she tries to help. She is a nurse. Another friend asked my advice when her 'white light' shield, something she has used for years, and truly believes in, was suddenly not strong enough to protect her from the negative energy she encounters in her work.
