Couples Massage Valentines

Yesterday I and one of my sons were driving down to Bel Air, Md discussing many things Spiritual and Metaphysical. As we were talking a thought appeared in my head, (or perhaps from the depths of my inner being) knowledge. I love it when that happens. It’s an awakening. An oh wow, I get that. And then I ask the question, “Am I the only one that gets that? or Has anyone else figured this out? Duh, it seems so simple now.” I’m saying this to lead you into your own mind to wonder what the hell I’m talking about. Well, since my subject line is couples massage valentines, it’s about couples massages.

Have you ever had a couples massage and you and your honey are given massages by two separate people in two different rooms? THAT IS NOT A COUPLES MASSAGE. Thats just two people getting massages at the same time and you happen to be coming in together as a couple. How disappointing is that?! I bet that’s not what you were expecting. Or has this scenario ever happened to you.

You and your honey made an appointment to receive a couples massage and you are in the same room, but the therapist wraps you up like a cocoon? And at to far a distance to be close with your partner? Again, I ask, what kind of “Couples” massage is that! Again, it’s just two people in the same room. Probably NO connection with your mate in any way. Two physical bodies in a room being massaged by two separate massage therapists.

I think, and this is what I discussed with my adult son, is that it is important that the couple receive touch by the same therapist. The therapist works on both people at the same time. He (or she) develops and maintains the connection for the couple. The massage therapist creates a sacred space for the couple. It’s not just about having oils or candles to imbue a mood. The therapist’s touch does that. I’ll tell you what. I know I am able to do that. I know my gifts. I acknowledge my gifts. I USE my gifts. In every single session I give to others, no matter the type of massage it is. When I give a couple a massage I am working with THEIR energies. I am using my self that facilitates a mixing, winding, turning of energies within the two beings on the table, with my energy, in the entire room. It turns into an out of body awareness. Or at least a place where the couple feels relaxed, free, and their sensuality as a couple.

When I was in massage school already certified to give massages I was telling the other students I had a couple coming in for a massage. I will never forget it. Some of the students asked, “How are you going to do that? That’s impossible.” They didn’t see it possible for one person to massage two people at the same time. I didn’t care what they thought. I knew I could do it and do it successfully. My thinking was also that it is much more simple than they were making it out to be.

I have two massage tables. I have them close together with just enough space for me to be in between. I typically start the massage on the woman’s head, neck, face, around her shoulders and down the back. Then I move to the man doing the same thing. Then I move myself in between the tables and massage both of their arms (the arms closest to me) at the same time. It is quite easy. It doesn’t require thought for me to perform this. I also do their abdomen and legs at the same time. I do as much as I possibly can on BOTH people at the same time. Then I move back and forth from man to woman (or woman to woman) and back into the  middle again near the end of the session connecting them as a couple. Maybe I take the hand of the male and place it n the females shoulder. Maybe I take the woman’s hand and place it on the mans belly. Maybe I take the hand of the man and the hand of the woman and place both of their hands on my heart, rest for a few seconds and say, “Thank You.” All of this allows a creation, a connection, with the two of them, for the two of them. Massage modality for couples is Esalen. Therefor the draping is different.

If you and your honey are looking for a true Couples Massage fill out this contact form and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Cartier Video – healing trauma through integration

Monday, August 18th, 2014

There is much to interpret about this Cartier video. Sensually, sexually, emotionally, and even Spiritually. I invite you to write your feedback. I included my interpretations.

Cartier Video

I watched this four times because there was so much! First of all I was getting chills from the get-go. It was very magical. When the leopard started waking up and when it burst through the cage, coming alive/waking up I saw and felt so much power and strength from the leopard. When he broke through the glass I sensed freedom. Freedom from being trapped inside his jeweled shell and then freedom from being stuck in the building. The leopard, it appeared he was looking and traveling instinctively of where he knew he needed to go. The watcher listens and watches in anticipation. Maybe even thinking. “Where is he going?” “What is his destination and why?”

I then see him run through the rings he must go through. He meets a dragon. Is the dragon his friend or enemy? Is the dragon being his friend and guiding him to where he needed to go? Like a Spirit guide perhaps? Until after I watched this a few times I realized the dragon was the golden bridge. It seemed like the dragon and the leopard were speaking telepathically to one another. The leopard was traveling from place to place; on the dragon, to the elephant with the castle on his back, jumping on the plane and then to the Cartier building, going somewhere he KNEW he needed to go. I could feel the energy inside the leopard. His sense of smell stronger and stronger leading him, telling him he is so close.

It was very sensual and erotic. It seemed like the panther was doing everything and anything to get where he needed to go. I noticed also when the leopard was looking down into the castle he seemed in awe. I noticed the peacock opened its wings. The panther seemed in awe when he arrived at the castle knowing that his beloved is there waiting for him. When they finally meet and embrace, it is in their essences that they each knew they would be together forever. I could tell that she was waiting for him and he was waiting to find her. The leopard was led every step of the way to reach her and be with her. In the end they walked into the box, as one, united, to be with each other forever.

In Love and Light,

Book Review

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

From Volney Steffire a FB friend reader

 

Dr. David Hawkins used to talk about a Level of Consciousness (LOC) scale. The written word could be measured using this scale. The first thing that I noticed about Barbara Anne Rose’s words was that they were vibrating at a very high frequency.

The frequency of written words comes from the frequency of the writer of the words, the intention at the time of the writing and the words themselves.

These words seemed to have been written by a radiant Goddess with a very loving intention. The level of vibration was palpable. One could meditate with these words.

The book has three layers. On one layer it is the author’s personal path of growth and healing. She discovers her voice and then her power. It will be an empowering story for some and a gratifying story for others on those terms. For those details buy the book. That is her story.

On another layer the book is about understanding one’s connection with the divine, both the divine within and the divine all around us. The author does a good job of explaining how religious beliefs and direct divine connection can be reconciled as being two aspects of the same thing. In her case her definition of the divine comes her Roman Catholic upbringing but her sense of connection comes from “the Spirit” within her and Spirit as another name for God.

I personally relate to mixing Roman Catholic terms with a non-dualist view of the divine. I first learned healing from an Ex-Roman Catholic Priest (Ron Roth) turned teacher of hands on healer. We referred to the Holy Spirit and asked the Holy Spirit to join with us. Another one of the many semantics for the divine both within us and all around us.

If one is comfortable with the non-dualist view that we can connect with “Spirit” and that we have a piece of Spirit within us and there are “Angels” around us maybe in human form or maybe in the hearts of others then the third layer of the book is very interesting. How do you really know what thoughts, desires or needs come from the physical, selfish self versus what comes from divinity?

On the surface this seems like it would be very easy to tell. Anything bad for someone else for no reason is not divine. How about good for someone else but not for you? There is a range of nuances covered.

Most healers that I know are sometimes double-checking whether what they feel is the right thing to do. Is it from the divine or not? Does this serve the client? But what if it does not serve me? Am I really channeling right now?

Barbara gets into these questions. Although the book is applicable to anyone comfortable with the non-dualist view of the divine, there is also a bit of a healthy, healer, heal thyself aspect. She shares a few of her mistakes as healer that occurred when she got confused as to the source of the insight.

I do have a couple of very loving words for the author. Barbara, I heard your voice. Thank you for sharing your truth, experience and wisdom so fearlessly Goddess.

Tantra

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Tantra, a broad word that means so much. I have been studying more on Tantra and I see so much more of what it really is. I see that it is a part of me. A path I want and need to explore for my own life. I found interest in this art years ago by searching the internet. You read and hear so many things that you think, “Is it this?” “Is it that?” It’s like saying the only kind of  massage is  Swedish massage. There are many forms of massage. So it is in Tantra. It really is about the Divine in each of us. Humans have lost it and we search for our divinity around us when it is right there within us all along. But we need someone to help guide us back to the divine in us. To help us, teach us, be there with support. Embrace your uniqueness. Embrace your sexuality, your sensuality. Embrace God within you.

Individuals from Baltimore, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Delaware, drive the distance to see me, to experience my touch. People take notice when I welcome them in my studio with my gentle touch, warm embrace, sweet smile.

I AM LOVING and Living my dreams and I’m telling you, I have many more dreams that I know I will manifest. We are not met to just dream dreams we are here and meant to live our dreams. We make our lives what it is. Your body is your temple. Humans live in their own heaven or hell. It is what you make of it. What you do with it. How you act. How you react. How and how much love you are and give. Break out of fear and move into peace and joy. Love and respect yourself.

Till next time. 🙂

Goddess Rose
