Reinvent yourself – through design thinking (Podcast)

Can you really design your own life in much the same way the architect designs a house and the writer designs a book?

David Bohl at https://possibilitychange.com/design-your-life/ shares his perspective that he doesn’t know if we can design every aspect of our lives because we have certain fixed and certain variable aspects.

For example, we cannot change our upbringing: the parents, siblings, education, childhood experiences, and all that went on before you came to this awareness of your ability to design your life. All that happened in the past has shaped who you are today, so you will need to start designing your life from this point forward.

The great news is that you do not have to leave your present organisation – as I share with a real example – but can reinvent your current situation to give you more of what you want for yourself from your work AND your life!!

As an ex-IBMer, and now a leadership coach, facilitator, and expert in DESIGN THINKING explains what design thinking is, and most importantly how you can use it to RE-INVENT yourself and your career.

How to Purify and cleanse your crystals at home!

Purifying and Focusing Your Crystals

Purifying Your Crystals

As crystals hold the energetic charge of everyone who comes into contact with them and absorb emanations from their surroundings, as well as your personal energies, they need regular purifying. This is particularly so when they are being used for healing. It is sensible to purify and re-energize a crystal every time it is used. The method employed will depend on the type of crystal. Soft and friable crystals, for instance, and those that are attached to a base can be damaged by water, and soft stones such as Halite will dissolve. These are best purified by a ‘dry’ process such as brown rice or sunlight, but sturdier crystals benefit from being placed under running water or in the sea.


Purifying and Focusing Your Crystals

 Purifying Your Crystal

As crystals hold the energetic charge of everyone who comes into contact with them and absorb emanations from their surroundings, as well as your personal energies, they need regular purifying. This is particularly so when they are being used for healing. It is sensible to purify and re-energize a crystal every time it is used. The method employed will depend on the type of crystal. Soft and friable crystals, for instance, and those that are attached to a base can be damaged by water, and soft stones such as Halite will dissolve. These are best purified by a ‘dry’ process such as brown rice or sunlight, but sturdier crystals benefit from being placed under running water or in the sea.

The task at hand as this activates them. By taking the time to attune a crystal to your own unique frequency, you enhance its vibratory effect and amplify its healing power.

 Methods:

 1-Running water

7 Ways to Cleanse Healing Crystals and Gemstones

Source – Angel Grotto

Hold your crystals under a running tap, or pour bottled water over them, or place them in a stream or the ocean to draw off negative energy (use a bag to hold small crystals). You can also immerse appropriate crystals in a bowl of water into which a handful of sea salt or rock salt has been added. (Salt is best avoided if the crystal is layered or friable.) Dry the crystal carefully afterwards and place in the sun to re-energize from any niches or cracks in the crystal as otherwise it will absorb water in the future and could cause splintering.) Place the crystals in the sun to re-energize.

 2-Smudging

Sage, sweetgrass or joss sticks are excellent for smudging as they quickly remove negative energies. Light the smudge stick and pass it over the crystal if it is large, or hold the crystal in your hand in the smoke if it is small. It is traditional to fan the smoke gently with a feather but this is not essential.

3-Visualizing Light

Hold your crystal in your hands and visualize a column of bright white light coming down and covering the crystal, absorbing anything negative it may have picked up and restoring the pure energy once more. If you find visualization difficult, you can use the light of a candle.

4-Focusing and Activating your crystals ( new moon to full moon phase )

Tips : Use a selenite plate or wand to re-energize the crystals

Once your crystal has been purified and re-energized, sit quietly holding the crystal in your hands for a few minutes until you feel in tune with it. Picture it surrounded by light and love. State that the crystal is dedicated to the highest good of all who use it. Then state very clearly your intention for the crystal – that it will heal or protect you, for instance. If it is intended for a specific purpose such as healing a particular condition, state that also. Repeat the intention several times to anchor it into the crystal.

Kubler Ross Model and Corona Connections

People feared when country’s corona count was 100.

No alternative text description for this image
*Kubler Ross Model

But now,there is no fear when it is over 190,000 The answer lies in the psychological view of man.

There is a philosophy called the “Kubler Ross Model”. That is, when a human goes through any tragedy, natural disaster, accident, they pass through 5 stages.

They are- 1.Denial

2.Anger

3.Bargain

4.Depression

5.Acceptance

1. Denial-Refusal to believe such a thing never happened.For example,we all denied that Corona will not come to us. Even it comes,repeated denial that it will not spread to our place due to hot climatic conditions.

2. Anger- Getting angry.For example, anger over the loss of income & the loss of normal life due to lockdown.

3. Bargain- Inwardly lamenting that the Corona may not have come & there should not have been a lockdown at all.

4. Depression-It happened like this and goes in to mental pressure & depression.

5. Acceptance – the last stage.

The other way around is to accept it. Example: Get used to living with Corona.

These 5 levels are not limited to Corona alone. Applies to all the problems in human life. The worst sufferers are the ones who do not reach Acceptance level and remain stuck.

$Millionaire piece of advise

1-Maintain Social Distance

2-Increase Immunity

3-Stay Safe

Amazonite

Throughout South America, Amazonite, also known as “The Amazon Rock,” was modeled after the Amazon River. This is believed to have been found in the Brazilian Amazon River Basin. They were named the ‘hope stone’ because they encourage you to talk with confidence and self-assurance and build hope for the success of the process.

Who should be considering wearing this?

Amazonite is known for its calming properties so is very helpful for the hostile and nervous. During stressful situations it gives the feeling of serenity. Amazonite rock brings equilibrium and peace, rationalizes the irrational and silences the mind. It is really useful for the undecided as it explores the reluctance and lack of confidence in decision taking. 

Why should you consider this?

Amazonite is known for its soothing properties. It soothes your anxiety and nervous system and helps ensure optimal wellbeing. It disperses harmful strength, deterioration and nervous system blockages. It brings balance in both masculine and feminine, lets you see both sides of a problem, or various perspectives. It wakes up your inner child and encourages you to spend time and space in your daily life for fun, joy and play. 

It is inspiring, promoting self-discovery, knowledge of oneself and the ability to accept one’s own honesty and reality. Amazonite forces strengthen faith in shrinking fear of conflict or harsh judgment from others when living by one’s own standards and convictions, all of which are amazonite in nature.

How to wear it? 

It can be used as a wrist mala for prayer beads. It can be worn as a necklace or pendant of amazonite gemstones so it will be near your heart or throat.

Life can often seem daunting and bewildering, but the Amazonite is bringing order to chaos, with its pure light flowing with love and hope.
