My friend, Myca, wakes up at 5 am and the first thing she does every morning is yoga.  She moves her body in prayer and devotion.

Andy and I attend Qigong every Wednesday evening and we stand in a circle with others, gently and slowly moving our arms and hands, defining and connected to invisible but tangible balls of energy, taking the energy up to our heads and drawing the energy down through our bodies, gathering it at our feet.  We are healing our bodies and stilling our minds.

These days, when I meditate and pray, my arms and hands automatically start to move into positions of prayer, hands together, or stretched up to the heavens in worship or offering or acceptance.  Sometimes, I find myself slowly spinning, like a whirling dervish, as I gather or send out energy.  I may move through poses and stances that seem like dance movements from another time, another land.  Movements of surrender, love and sometimes even desperation.  Sometimes movements of power, sometimes a request for healing, sometimes a plea for divine grace to descend, sometimes my body just needs to move.  And the beauty of it is, nothing is planned or thought out, it is simply happening because my body starts doing it all on its own.  All are movements of prayer, of devotion and meditation, all are a part of the sacred language our bodies speak when we are at our most open and projecting or receiving the most pure and sacred energy.

We don’t just need to pray with words or thoughts, we don’t just have to meditate with closed eyes in silent stillness.  Sometimes, our bodies wish to talk in movements of graceful prayer and serene devotion.  Let your body move, let your love flow.


This image of a wind turbine, captured from the car as we sped past at top speed on the motorway, happened to be caught at a moment when it appeared like a human figure, head thrown back and arms reaching out.



Healing The Heart of the Earth is my blog and the Home of Four Branches Healing which is the shamanic and energy healing service of myself, Amanda Reid. My blog focuses on my spiritual thoughts, feelings and experiences throughout a daily life blessed with the freedom to be and do many of my favourite things. Coupled with the lessons, messages and challenges that certain physical conditions bring to me from time to time, namely migraine aura and osteoarthritis. Sometimes, I face outwards and focus on bringing healing to others, sometimes, I need to face inwards and focus on my own healing and growth. My passions include walking in the woodlands and working with the trees, strolling along beaches and swimming in the seas. I approach most things from the perspective of a worker with energy, looking for the energetic dynamic and using it to bring healing, hope, love, faith and manifestation into my life and those of others who cross my path, in as much as I am able. My path is wholly within the vibrations of the divine, particularly the feminine principle of the divine, whose current expression is enabling a balance of male and female energy for humanity. One day, we will be ready to embrace the non-gender reality of the cosmic levels completely, but for now, the divine feminine is bringing her loving and compassionate energy to balance out and bring healing to the millenia of masculine divine energy that has been expressing itself on Earth. If there was only one thing I could say to you, it is this, you are divine. It matters not who you are, you are divine. You have no reason to accept what I say, but I still wish for you to know it, not with your thoughts and mind but in such a way that you feel and experience the truth of it, embrace and embody it. You are divine. You and every other being you know. By divine, I mean you are made up of the same stuff as what we call God, what I call the Creator. At our core, all of us are that pure, that perfect, that magnificent and that wise. We are, however, a little more complicated than that, consisting of a number of elements that go together to make who we are in this, our present personality, in this, our current incarnation on Earth. Take that divine core and add a rather confused and easily bruised personality/ego with a severe memory problem, starting out (again) as a little baby, growing up in a hurt and challenging world, amongst a population of people all going through the same thing, all trying to work it out. The divine core, at soul level, is more like a passenger, its voice not heard for all the noise of our physical existence; the desires, the emotions, the struggles, the suffering, the pain, the fears. All of it, illusion, just a very convincing one. I’m one of many who are waking up. Are you one who is waking up? Confusing, isn’t it? But worth it. There truly is no other way, this is simply the best game in town and we are ascending. Wake up with me and embrace your divine nature. You are more than welcome, you are my reason for being here.
