March 2021 Energy and Spiritual Awakening experiences
Hello and welcome back to Awakening Spirituality. This month we’ve got something a bit different to talk about. We’re going have a discussion with Tina Heathers about energy, what it is and how it can help us to effect positive change for anyone on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. We discuss how there’s more to us than just the physical, there’s a spiritual side of us, and how we use energy healing techniques to manipulate the energy that’s radiating from the body. We also talk a bit about our own spiritual awakening experiences and what it’s like to navigate through a life as an empath.  So, buckle in, we’re about to go exploring into our energy fields and see what we come up with. You can contact Tina by email tina@awakeningspirituality.ca or visit the website:  www.awakeningspirituality.ca or join our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/awakeningspirituality.ca    You can visit Tina's personal website at : www.thesilencewithin.com or email her at tina@thesilencewithin.com Send us an email with questions of comments to:  Heather@awakeningspirituality.ca

January 2021 Yoga Nidra and Tai Chi
Join us for our fourth podcast of Awakening Spirituality.  In the first half of this episode we talk with Vickie MacArthur who introduces us to Yoga Nidra.   Vickie invites our listeners to rebel against society’s mad and crazy lust for always doing “more”, and discover the power of Yoga Nidra’s deep rest for body and soul.    Vickie explained how The practice of Yoga Nidra is a cumulative practice that begins to slowly change our body’s physiology, and our brain chemistry.  Yoga Nidra helps activate the relaxation response and improve the functioning of your nervous system and endocrine system, which affects your hormones. Yoga Nidra helps cells regenerate and repair, and it helps to decrease anxiety and improve your mood. I would encourage you try this for yourselves and let us know what you think. Vickie can be reached at: info@awakeningspirituality.ca or visit the website: www.awakeningspirituality.ca or join our facebook page:  Awakening Spirituality. In the second half of our episode we speak with Johan Koeslag who introduces us to Tai Chi, where he explains the physical and spiritual benefits of Tai Chi and how it is a Path to awakening to our True Self or Being. Johan also explained how Tai Chi is an alchemical or transformational process to meld body and mind and encourage higher levels of awareness in which we can function in tandem with our Creator. You can message Johan at info@awakeningspirituality.ca or jhkoeslag@gmail.com Here is a link to his YouTube Videos:  https://youtu.be/AkFN5aIwSec   Join us in February when we talk with Jim and Janet Poirier about the Spirituality of Food.

December 2020 Spirit Journaling and Ho'oponopono
Join us for our third podcast of Awakening Spirituality.  Awakening Spirituality is a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore your spirituality and share with other seekers.   In the first half of this episode we talk with Arlene Caldwell who introduces us to Prayer and Spirit Journalling.  Essentially it is a written dialogue between the writer and the Divine. It can be practiced by anyone who wishes to acknowledge personal blessings and offer gratitude. It can be practiced to release burdens and blocks in your life as well as to seek clarification on appropriate responses to stressful situations. It is a process to allow you to actively listen to your own higher wisdom and to become a better version of yourself in your daily walk here on the earth plane.  Grab a book or a piece of paper, or even a computer screen, get into a place of gratitude, and start your dialogue with the divine. Arlene can be reached at: info@awakeningspirituality.ca or visit the website: www.awakeningspirituality.ca or join our facebook page:  Awakening Spirituality.   In the second half of our episode we speak with Carol Marie Groen who introduces us to Ho'oponopono, which uses a 4-phrase prayer like mantra, combined to clean the data of our memories and help us retake 100% responsibility for everything in life, good, bad, and indifferent.  When you use the prayer or mantras, you're cleaning within yourself to heal your inner child, your memories, and your ancestral memories, to make room for Inspiration from the Divine.  The mantras, that go like this: I'm sorry - repentance,   Please forgive me - forgiveness,  Thank you - gratitude,  I love you - love.  The absolute miracle of practicing Ho’oponopono is that you get to experience the renewing miracle of Love – within yourself, and then with and for others. And you can begin right now. Right where you are.  For the month of December I challenge you (and myself) to up our spiritual practices to include spirit journaling and to repeat the Ho’oponopono mantras every day until the new year. I’m kind of excited to see what happens.  You can message Carol Marie at CarolMarie@awakeningspirituality.ca or visit her website at: HowSweetItIs.ca (very soon).

Do some slow breaths, to feel and listen to the air you breath passing through your nose and into your lungs and out again. This may take a few minutes or a little longer.  Take that first step, Go for a walk, wherever you may be, notice your surroundings, write down your experiences. And remember that sometimes the walk is simply to be more connected and grounded with the earth.  You can contact Heather Oliver through her website healingwithnaturestouch.com or by visiting our website www.awakeningspirituality.ca.
