Cleanse, Transmute, Let Go

Enriching African Violets

To some, the African Violet is known to be a fussy plant, and many are nervous to attempt to grow this in their homes.  This may cause one to miss out on their special magical qualities.

How to care for an African Violet: 

  • This plant requires keeping the soil moist to dry.growing-african-violets-L-Jrwnt_
  • To encourage blooming please allow the soil around the roots to dry out before watering.
  • It is more beneficial to water from the bottom with room temperature water; as this helps to avoid getting water on the leaves that can cause spotting damage.
  • The flowering plant requires moderate to bright light, some people will have special lighting units just for their African violet.

This may seem like a bunch of work.  The benefits far outweigh the care of the plant.

African Violet Cleansing Benefits: 

This beautiful plant and flower is a mega powerhouse in the form of cleansing one’s space. This happens in a natural way.

Cleanse Your Energies African VioletsClearing of Negative Energies:

They are able to clear away the old, heavy energies that may weigh one down.  Especially an empath.  In any space this sweet beauty will powerfully eliminate those energies. Thus, having this in your home or office will help reduce the negative vibes that may be around.  No one will even be aware, and believe this to just be a beautiful flowering plant.

They are also incredible at transmuting the lower energies into a higher vibration. Purchase and place the African Violet; water and voila this plant will continue to cleanse away those dark, old energies that may be unknowingly stuck in your body or space.

Eliminating the Old: 

The presence of an African violet can help release the old, creating an easier transition.  The African violet says, “Please ask me to help you clear away your old nuisances and allow space for the new to take place.”

Bad Dreams and/or Nightmares: 

If you are one to have nightmares or bad dreams, place this near your bedside.  It will help to erase these from you.  Or a child who may have difficulty with sleeping, place this in their rooms and the fear of things that go bump in the night shall lessen.

Archangel Qualities: 

Not only are the plants and flowers a great way to clear negative energies, this plant/flower also works with Archangels.

Archangel Michael who is known as -he who is like God, has a way to create releasing and clearing.  If you request the help of the African violet along with Archangel Michael’s sword, this is a powerful combination. He will cut away the negative vibes and energies.  After he clears away the negative energies, ask Archangel Michael, “Dear Archangel Michael please place a protective divine white light all around me.”  Breath in 3 counts, hold for 3 counts and breath out for 3 counts, and so it is.  The African violet helps to continue to cleanse the area around one.

Archangel Raphel is an angel of healing-one who heals God’s souls. Requesting his presence along with the African violet can help the healing of a concerned ailment.  He is associated with the color green, and green sparkles are a sign that he is present.

Metatron is not an “Archangel,” but a human known in the form of a prophet and for his Merkaba cube.  This can help in the clearing of lower energies, and when utilizing Metatron’s gifts one may see pink and green lights.

Associated Chakras: 

The Third Eye,  Crown Root  chakras are associated with the African violet.  This dazzling plant can help get rid of any negative, old, heavy energies that are not allowing one to utilize these chakras. The African Violet can help transmute dark, heavy energies into lighter freer energies. This will help you connect and balance the foundation of your root chakra and connect more deeply into your Spiritual Self through the Third Eye and Crown chakras.

If you feel that these chakras are blocked, sit near an African violet and ask the flowering or non-flowering beauty to help you remove that which is blocking.


Please be aware that sometimes cats like to nibble on this plant, and this is not good as ingesting the leaves is poisonous.

May you enjoy the incredible grace that this flowering plant bestows upon us in a most natural manner.

Root Chakra Healing

How to Simply Heal Your Root Chakra

The root chakra is associated with the color red  This is our embodiment into our physical Selves and helps for grounding,  feeling safe and be balanced in building our foundation.   


Release and Cleanse

How often do you hear or read just release and let it go.  Or cleanse this our of your system. However, what does this truly mean?  


Light Energy

We are energy light beings who thrive on energy.  This energy very much brings us expansion. Now close your eyes and imagine the Northern Lights.  Our inner light very much dances in harmony with our energy just as the Northern Lights.   


Root Chakra is Red

This inner light helps empower our bodies.  In my last blog, we moved into a meditation to help align our Root Chakra energies with the Strawberry Full Moon. The Root Chakra is the color red.  The color red appears all around us.  We wear it, eat it and use all of our senses to enjoy the color red.  


Imbalanced Root Chakra



An imbalanced Root Chakra may show in the form of feet, legs, the endocrine systems or adrenal fatigue.  


Light Energy

Loving Yourself

This may also show in the form of loneliness, insecurities, abandonment, depression, and unstable disconnection from yourself or others.  


Simply Divine

Energy healing seems complex; and in some ways it can be; but mostly the Divine Spirit wishes for this to be gentle and simple.  Or what I like to call Simply Divine. One of the Simply Divine ways to help re-balance your energies is through nourishment.  

Nurturing Ourselves

Northern LightsClose your eyes and place your hands over your lower pelvic region.  Imagine a red strawberry in the base of your spine and pelvic region. The strawberry is light, sweet and luscious.  There is a red light that pours from the strawberry.  Imagine the light dancing within your pelvic region; just as the Northern Lights dance in the sky.  Ask Spirit to help you illuminate your pelvic region with this sweet red light.  Let this pour into you.  Inhale and exhale in a natural rhythm that syncs with your heart beat. Sit like this for 5-6 minutes.  

I am deeply rooted.

I am open to all possibilities.

I trust mySelf.


Nourishing Ourselves

Light Energy

Yummy Strawberries

Food brings forth good energies or bad energies depending on how we choose to nourish ourselves. I do not know about you, but I love berry season.  The fresh berries sweet, ripe and delicious. Enjoy a nice bowl of strawberries.  Take a bite, swirl this on your teeth, swish this in your mouth and chew in a mindful manner.  Envision this flowing all the way to the base of your spine and flushing into the lower pelvic region. Spreading and flowing in a fluid manner with your sweetness-filling you in this region and expanding throughout you. The light energies of the strawberry pulses through you. You are connecting and balancing yourself in a sweet manner full of Divine Love of Spirit.

What is Animal Reiki?

What is animal reiki image

The Light Happiness image

What is animal Reiki and how can this benefit your fur baby? In a previous blog, “What is Reiki?”, I describe this as a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The same is true for our loved pets.  This can be performed in person or via long distance.  Be sure to check out my previous blog about long distance Reiki. Unfortunately, our fur friends can become ill, run-down or stressed.  They, too can benefit from Reiki.


There is no usage of drugs.

Animal Reiki is a “laying of hands” and a gentle touch.  Therefore, there is little chance to harm your pet.

As of recent more veterinary clinics are including Reiki in their offices.


  • Calms the mind
  • Helps provide a more positive outlook by balancing the mental and emotional wounds to help open one up to more love. A rescued animal can be traumatized.
  • Balances the bodies energies.
  • Adapts to individual needs.
  • Promotes pain relief of physical ( arthritis ) or emotional (such as grieving-as pets also grieve).
  • Eases tension, stress and relaxes muscles.
  • Enhances natural healing and helps trigger the body’s natural healing system by enhancing one’s immune system and can help speed up the healing process of a long illness and can reduce the effects of medical treatments.
  • Ease and speed up the healing process of a traumatic event (another animal attack).


Animals who may be experiencing difference in their behaviors respond much more quickly than humans.  For this reason it is idea for our fur friends to have a rapid treatment.  They may also respond more speedily to Reiki benefits.

The “laying of hand” also differs.  Place this with a very gentle touch on or near the area.   It is also ideal to allow a fur friend to roam and move; do not attempt to make them sit still.  Animals are extremely sensitive and receptive to the divine flowing energies.


Cat & Dog Chakra Image

Cat & Dog Chakra

Any animal in the animal kingdom. A cat or dog have similar chakra zones.

Reptiles and birds enjoy Reiki energies; this may be best practice to administer this with hands on or near the cage in a safe manner.


If a pet does not respond well, refuses to cooperate or improve then please seek veternary medical advice.  Reiki is not a replacement nor medical treatment.

Can you complete this from a distance? 

Long distance Reiki does hold the same similarities and effectiveness as in-person Reiki.   It is just the mode that is delivered differently. Therefore, a skilled Reiki Master can allocate Reiki to you in a distance setting.


Be sure to have your fur baby drink lots of water the week following a Reiki session, this will help ease the releasing. Please be aware that they may get a little emotional or even have some physical releasing (mucus, coughing and even eliminating in the bathroom) as the toxins are released. Maybe give them a bath or a nice gentle brushing. Be sure to ask Archangel Michael and/ or Archangel Raphael to request in releasing this from your aura and washing it down the drain.
