Old Man Winter is visiting North Texas
this weekend, so I thought it would be a good time to send out the latest Antics,
then do another in December. Actually I am getting ready for the
Fair next Sunday, planning the Open House for December 15th, revamping business
brochures, and cooking up lots of ideas for de-stressing, looking at Reiki classes in
January, lots of reading, so the bookworms will be busy at my home.
November was a great month as I enjoyed
at the Dallas
sitting up in the gods,
followed the next week by the Dallas screening of the movie “Finding
where I was sitting 20 feet
from the screen. This movie is the story of the Ananda
community founded by Swami Kriyananda (who passed on 6
months ago at age 86). An inspiring community! You couldn’t help but be moved by the
photography and community purpose. Locally, you can participate in community events,
just go tohttp://anandadallas.org/default.htm
, learn how to meditate, do yoga or participate in their services. In 2014
the movie will be screened at Unity Church http://unitydallas.org/
(I did not see it on their
calendar yet. And WOW someone has spent some time updating their website, take a look!)
and the Center for Spiritual Living http://www.csldallas.org/
. (Guess everyone is updating
their websites!! Lots of information on this site.) If I see
when the movie is playing, I will let you know.
Please be sure to read everything in
this newsletter, many tips and ideas. Pay attention for free offerings. Here
My business, of course!!!!! Gift cards
or certificates are available at any time for any amount and can be customized. Go to my
blog to see a photo of the holiday version http://annaparkins.wordpress.com/2013/11/06/holiday-gift-certificates/
Beat the blues, let go of stress and
breeze through the holiday season!
George Goodenow is the owner of Xeonix
where you can purchase beautifully
designed and made pendulums and divination tools. (If you want to surprise me with a
holiday gift, this is the place!).
My BIG annual tip about Half Price
is to buy a $25.00 gift card and
receive $5 coupon (offer good through 12/24/13), additionally buy $5.00 of merchandise at
the same time, bringing your total to $30.00 (or more) and receive a 2014 calendar with
coupons. When you spend the gift card and more, you qualify for another calendar with
coupons. Great, huh? You can use the $5 coupon after January
1st. No problem!!!! Now you have coupons any time you shop at Half Price next
has jumped on this bandwagon and when you buy a $25 gift card, you get $5 coupon (valid
only in January) for your next purchase. This offer is valid through
Must Be In The
For several months I have been
emphasizing the need for grounding and protection, especially when doing energy work. In
the current issue of “Massage & Bodywork” magazine, you can read an article on Energy
Release and The Art of Self-Protection, p. 90, http://www.massageandbodyworkdigital.com/i/196551
which includes establishing a
protective egg around you before a session. There are some other great ideas, worth
checking out. Needless to say I will refer this article to my future Reiki
There is another article on p.110 from
Cyndi Dale http://cyndidale.com/
called “Chakra Shortcuts to Stress
Relief” which would particularly appeal to energyworkers. She
includes information on the five chakras beyond the traditional Hindu seven. Cyndi’s books
have to be on your bookshelf!
Did you notice last month that I am giving Angel
Card readings? December is practice month, come get a free reading. Maybe you have
checked out prolific and pioneering Doreen Virtue’s website http://www.angeltherapy.com/
or her weekly oracle card
(worth viewing to see how you
can use various decks). There are quite a few free readings available online, but here
is another one that I like from Mary Jac Burroughs in
Portsmouth, England, who has been doing readings since 2003 http://www.myangelcardreadings.com/index.html
This is a huge site, so if
angels or cards are one of your interests, take time to explore
Last month I also mentioned card decks. The one I
am using for readings is “Healing With The Angels Oracle
available from Hay House for
$5.00 right now.
On December 1st (at the
Dallas Psychic Fair) I will be giving away a new boxed set of the “Angel Blessings”
value $19.99) by Kimberly Marooney. The 44 cards come with a
booklet containing a wealth of information about angels, as well as how to use the cards.
Add these cards to your collection or start a library about angels. Need not be present to
win, just let me know if interested.
Also timely for the indulgent holidays
when we tend to relax our eating and drinking boundaries, (That’s what New Year’s
resolutions are for, right? Lose the weight you gained in December!) here is a clip from Ellen (Love Ellen!!) with a model guest, Robyn
where they talk about thigh gap and the
fashion industry. What a great role model Robyn is. And who knew a thigh gap was important?
Just tells me how far I am away from a size 2!
Expand your knowledge about Reiki, read
from Pamela Miles’ website an article about Reiki and money
HyakutenInamoto is a Japanese Buddhist
monk from Kyoto, Japan who studied Reiki with Chiyoko
Yamaguchi, a student of Chujiro Hayashi. Hyakuten is fluent in English, and is noted for his kind, gentle manner and
joyous sense of humor. Internationally known as an authority on Reiki, Hyakuten http://komyoreikikai.org/
has been an invaluable consultant and
translator to many authors include “Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide” by Pamela Miles and “The
Reiki Sourcebook” by Bronwen and Frans Stiene. Hyakuten’s http://komyoreikikai.org/hyakutens-schedule/
Having just compiled a list of favorite
Reiki books, I just discovered (isn’t that always the case?) that “The Everything Reiki
Book” by Phylameana lila Désy (2004) was published in 2012 as
“The Everything Guide to Reiki.” It’s the same size and format with a few tweaks. So, when
shopping, get the latest edition. And if you do not find it on the shelf at Half Price
, ask them to look in the computer,
they will ship from another store for free (unless you are in a desperate hurry and want
mailed to your address for a fee).
Scan the list of documentaries on this
(I think it was this website) and
you are bound to come up with something of interest. (Don’t write off this website, there
are hundreds of choices, not all about global activism, some very short films.) For
instance “Remains of A River” distributed in October is about a
trek along or on the Colorado river, from beginning to end http://www.filmsforaction.org/watch/remains_of_a_river_2013/
(45 minutes). Why not create a
list of items to do when it seems there is “nothing” on TV? (Oh, you already have
Focus on Dallas!
In November (and prior) we, in Dallas, were
entertained, bored, reminisced, talked about the non-election, the 50th JFK
celebration (What’s to celebrate? Okay, Jim, I get it now!) and now we have a movie,
“Dallas Buyers Club” http://www.focusfeatures.com/dallas_buyers_club
reviewed (chewed up by the
critics) here http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/dallas-buyers-club-2013
(how Americans are dealing with
the AIDS epidemic) and a review from across the pond http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20131031-how-hollywood-grapples-with-aids
that is rated low, but high in
star power (who doesn’t like Matthew McConaughey or Jennifer
Garner?) Based on a true story, have got to see this movie! So, Dallas, the focus is
back on this city!
Kicking off the month, I will be at the
Dallas Psychic Fair http://dallaspsychicfair.com
on Sunday, December 1st, 11:30 – 6:00 pm, facilitating energy balancing sessions
at the Doubletree Hotel (635/Midway). Start the month off feeling great! See next Antics
for more events.
Saving the best for last! One of the
books I am reading is David K. Miller’s http://www.groupofforty.com/
“Arcturians: How to Heal, Ascend, and Help Planet Earth”
. One concept I keep coming back to is
– Acceptance and Expansion rather than fight or flight. I will include a quote next time.
Meanwhile, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and abundant
