Happy Days Are Here Again!!!
Happy Days Are Here Again!!!
I have been humming this song since November. I am going into this up coming year with my hopes high for myself, my friends and family (that includes you too!) and also my country. 2009 feels like a new beginning. Each step we take forward in love, respect and equality for ourselves and each person we come into contact with moves us toward a better world. Where are you focusing your thoughts today?
Let’s move into this next year with our heads held high, our arms and hearts open to receiving and giving and our minds open to new ideas and growth. I am proud to be here with all of my fellow lightworkers. Together we are making a difference.
We have a new writer this month. I have always found her writing to be inspirational and thought provoking. Several of her works have been published in magazines and can also be found on our website under Ricki’s Corners. If you have never taken the time to review some of her work, you are truly missing out.
Our Psychic Fair was a blast as always. Our next scheduled fair is March 14th
. You don’t have to wait for a fair to speak with one of our psychics. There is always someone available for you here. You can find a list of scheduled readers/healers on our website. www.higherselfbookstore.com

The Energies of January
Happy New Year!!!
The Rune for January is: Berkana: Growth and Rebirth
Have you ever felt our entire world so poised for whatever comes next? Everywhere you turn you hear conversations about the hope held by so many for successful change and compassionate growth as America’s new administration finally begins. This month’s Rune… Berkana… affirms that we will see growth and rebirth. And this Rune reminds us all to be aware, awake, compassionate and holding the intentions which we truly wish to live.
2009 is lining up to be a magical year… In numerology, 2 + 9 = 11 and 11 is a Master Number indicating spiritual growth and enlightenment. Both Berkana and the numerology suggest that this is a year to be done with the old issues, obstacles and erroneous thinking and to finally (and powerfully) begin anew.
We are all stepping into new territory this month… this year… Our job is to imagine, think passionately about and then give birth to the most magnificent future possible… and then, let’s release and inspire it to go beyond imagination and into totally new levels of joy!
(Reference book: The Book of Runes, by Ralph Blum
The Osho Zen Tarot Card for January is: Friendship
The Friendship card tells us that, alone we are strong and complete… and united in the true bond of friendship we are even stronger, creating opportunities and growth which could not be obtained so easily alone.
The global chaos of the last several months has had many messages worth knowing… perhaps one of the most important of those messages is that we are a global community… What affects us here in this country affects all others everywhere and vice versa! The Friendship card reminds us to remember how much our happiness and our success are irrevocably intertwined.
This month Friendship says: ‘We're all in this together!’

Deeksha - What is the Oneness Blessing?
The Oneness Blessing (also known as Oneness Deeksha or Diksha) is a
non-denominational benediction. A unique and specific blessing, it is the transfer of Divine Energy which, over time is designed to bring about the state of Oneness in the recipient. This energy has been brought to the world through Divine Grace and is being bestowed upon humanity by the twin avatars of enlightenment Sri Bhagavan and Sri Amma, who reside in the Golden City, India.
What happens during the Oneness Blessing?
The Oneness Blessing initiates a neurobiological change in the brain that when complete enables the senses to be free from the interference of the mind. When the senses are unclouded by the mind’s interpretations, a natural clarity of perception occurs with accompanying spontaneous feelings of joy, inner calmness and connection to the Oneness in everything.
How is the Oneness Blessing transferred? What might I experience?
Oneness Blessing is transferred by the Oneness Facilitator by placing his or her hands onto the crown of your head, usually for about 1 minute. Experiences during the Oneness Blessing vary, sometimes strong, sometimes subtle, sometimes delayed until even days later. The recipient may experience a tingling sensation in the head, or blissful energy flowing through the body, or sometimes nothing at all. Whatever the experience, the recipient can trust that the process of Oneness has begun, a process designed by Divine Grace for your own nature that will lead gradually (or sometimes spontaneously) into your own Awakening.
Deeksha is offered every Friday at 1 pm at the Higher Self Bookstore. Suggested donation of $5-10. Tuesday evening Deeksha is on winter Break.
Greetings Sisters and Brothers, I’’’mmmm Back!
And all though I’m totally happy to be back I notice a lot of you are looking a little frayed around the edges. Now this little travel tidbit should make you feel a little better. In England it rains most of the time. Even when it doesn’t rain it is still gray out. It gets almost fully dark by 2pm. So if you are feeling the least bit out of sorts from lack of sunshine imagine that! And if that doesn’t make you fell better and oh so superior to the UK, I have a friend who will definitely help. Meet me - Sunstone. A mini happiness generator you can carry in your pocket. Some pieces are bright at first glance and some you have to turn slowly to find the hidden fire. But which ever it is, their guaranteed to make you smile and remember that the sunshine will return. Holding it next to my heart generates warmth like a summer day. And just having it in the palm of my hand makes me smile. As you allow me to brighten your day you’ll notice a return of your personal power and strength. Just as the real sun helps plants to grow so too will your sense of self. I will turn your negative thoughts around and remind you of why you are so precious! See you haven’t even gotten me yet and I can feel your smile trying to break through from here. Don’t let depression dim your light. Come take a piece of me into your space and let me share my warmth with you.
Smile dear one, I and the whole world adore you.
You light up many lives, Let me light yours.
Have a glorious and blessed New Year!!!

Start off the New Year by releasing the old, so the new may shine through! (Out with the old & in with the new)
If you could uncover and heal the root cause of your illness or emotional pain would you? Could you open your heart to the beautiful and awesome creation that you really are?
Research has suggested that we carry in our DNA inherited emotional baggage from past generations as well as our own. These emotions are stored in the amygdale gland in the brain, part of the limbic system. Essential oils are used because they are capable of breaking through the blood/brain barrier. Essential oils can travel to the amygdale gland where emotions are stored and the aroma helps release these stored emotions.
During an Emotional Release Centering Session, you may experience flashbacks or think about things in the past, or you may experience little emotion.
During the session you will lay on the massage table, fully clothed, soft music will be playing; essential oils are applied to selected areas. No talking is necessary during the session. (Please wear old comfortable clothes, the oils may stain).
Please call Raina Salk
@ 231-590-9329 or 941-5805 to schedule.
**Need 7-10 to days advance notice to schedule
Spirit Guide Breakdown!
Many "psychic" readers communicate information from what most people call "Spirit Guides" but not many people know that there is a difference between where (or who) the information is actually coming from: Technically, anyone in the Ethereal Realm who offers assistance to people in the physical could be considered a "guide". But what most people consider to be "Spirit Guides" are actually the consciousness of people who have lived before who have fairly low vibrations (and perspectives compared to others in the hierarchy). These people are still making attempts to experience love--by helping. Keep in mind that like energy attracts like energy, so the psychic reader will typically only attract an ethereal being within the same range of vibration. So when a reader evolves (raises their vibrations), he/she can then regularly communicate with higher vibrating beings, such as a person's Higher Self, Archangels, Ascended Masters, Mother & Father God, the Feminine Spirit, Masculine Spirit, and Isness (a.k.a. Bridget). But depending on a person's vibrations, some Higher Selves vibrate at a similar frequency as traditional "Spirit Guides".
So what is a Higher Self? (for a more in-depth explanation of the Higher Self as well as the Ethereal Hierarchy, sign up for the Ethereal Clearing Lecture.)
A Higher Self is a consciousness that helps facilitate a person’s evolution. The standard Higher Self refers to a consciousness that is typically of a higher vibration than the traditional "Spirit Guides". Higher Selves are separate consciousness that were created to help “Isness”, or God, experience herself…God literally has experiences through the Higher Self. The Higher Self’s “job” is to manage (help evolve) different physical people he/she is connected energetically to (unlike Spirit Guides who are not designated to a person). These people are in separate dimensions, so your Higher Self manages only you in this dimension. Higher Selves evolve when their “person” evolves, which makes them very personally invested in our evolution. It has been our experience, with the Ethereal Clearing Workshop, that not all Higher Selves are eager and willing to use the abundant resources at their disposal, and often need to be guided to do so.
There is much to be said about moving up through the Ethereal Hierarchy, because as your consciousness shifts, your Higher Self can transcend from being the traditional Higher Self to an Archangel, Mother or Father God, and so on. Other Ethereal Beings do assist in our evolution from time to time, but the regular job belongs to the being that matches your vibrational frequency...your Higher Self. Many people are either unaware of where their guidance is actually coming from and some people just make an assumption. It has been my experience that understanding and questioning your personal connections opens you up for even more guidance and a clearer connection.
Happy New Year!

A Christmas Miracle
By Ricki Blanchard
I was driving back to Traverse City from downstate on Monday after Christmas following a whirlwind of get-togethers with family(s) and friends, listening to the audio book “The Law of Thinking” by Bishop E. Bernard Jordan It really had me captivated, explaining the laws of manifestation in a very God based manner quite different than most I’ve read, yet the basic principles were the same. They always are!
