Embodying Your Divine Self

Entering into the arms of your Beloved, you enter into the Essence of You.

There are thresholds that must be crossed if you wish to come home to you Divine Self. And what is meant by the ‘Divine Self?‘  

Have you experienced those moments of empty ~ bliss?  

Where you’re so lost in something you love doing, absorbed in the moment, losing track of all space & time, shedding for those moments, the attachment to who your personality is or isn’t? 

Or when you’ve felt in such a flow with creativity gushing forth, uninhibited, expressing spontaneously, that even you were amazed in the afterglow?

Or when someone or something, has unexpectedly opened your heart to allow an ecstatic LOVE pour through your being, unafraid, unfettered, and fully expanded, that there was nothing in your mind, but that state of being in your awareness? 

Our Divine Self, expresses through vibrations, frequency & states of being, rather than emotions or thought. Those states of being are always present, they don’t ebb & flow, with our whims, fears, judgments, or grief. They are ever-present, as those qualities are our sacred ground of being. They are who we are, beneath the personality of stories, beliefs, habits, & life’s experiences.

The Divine Self radiates through us in a growing force & presence, the more that we release, heal & unfurl the false sense of self.

But how do we find the thresholds, let alone access this living presence within each of us? 

How do we learn to maintain that connection once it’s made? 

How do we allow it to transform us, so that we are living more fully as our divine Self? 

This is what we explore in the Path of Embodiment, since we can’t access, awaken, maintain & transform into the remembering of our Divine Self without Embodiment.  This path is not of the intellect or mind, it must take place within our body, heart, & Soul.  It is experiential, utilizing only as needed, the informational.

You are invited to explore & expand, deepen & embody your Truest Self, Divine Self, when you step through the first threshold of inquiry & a consultation with me.

I’ll be hosting a deep dive into this conversation of initiation, for your Beloved’s Embrace:

Seek Within

Seekers, ready yourselves to cease seeking outside of you . . . While it serves us for awhile, at some point we must release the outward focus in order to receive what is being revealed from within. . .  Seek from the deep well of the source within you, which connects you directly to the Source.

Seek the Love that abides, which resides beneath your fears.

Seek the Joy that streams effortlessly below the turbulence of your stress, attachments & disease.

Seek the Clarity that springs forth, once you release the the addiction to the programming of the world around you.

Seek the Compassion that caresses your own heart, when you befriend the darkness of your wounding. 

Seek the Peace that is the ground of your being, present when you cease the going, doing, & busying yourself, with unending distractions.

Seek the Power that is the core of your being, that up-lifts & carry’s you from the grounded presence, that sees through the forces of trickery ,which continues to sway you from your centeredness, by the illusions of powerlessness. 

Seek the Inspired Genius which infuses your creations, as soon as you let go of the ‘thinking’ mind and access the Divine Blueprint of your Soul.

Seek to Embody the Divinity of your Humanity, by lighting the fire or your divine spark. Ignite it within your body to reveal the Living Teachings within you, and remembering your True Essence, is far beyond what this world has compelled you to be. 

Seek within, where all your questions fade away, and only Wisdom is already known.

Embraced by Programming

Too often we are held in the warm embrace of comfort and contentment, of what we think we know to be true. It feels warm and fuzzy and non-threatening. But alas, it’s what we can also call programming.

And we can feel this changing!

In this space, this close embrace, we are held in a state of sleep. By sleep, I of course am not referring to the night time, rest, rejuvenate, dream land, subconscious processing, in preparation for the coming day, sleep.

By asleep, I’m referring to a subconscious resistance to ignite a more wakeful, curiosity about the world we live in. Such as: Why do I function as I do in the world? Why do the world’s ‘advanced’ societies function in the way they do? Why do I hold the beliefs I have? What is my deepest longing? deepest fear? most wondrous joy? What am I truly here on this planet for? What is my purpose? Why do I hate? Why do I love? Why do I keep repeating habits that bring unhappiness? Do I believe I am special, unique, divine? If not, why not? Do I have a sense of the sacred or soul in my life? Do I love  myself? If not, why not? Do I believe in things I cannot see? If not, why not?

You see, many of us go through our lives on autopilot (accepted programming). Yet more of us are beginning to address these kinds of questions within ourselves. When we’re asleep/programmed, held in the arms the ordinary, mundane state of ourselves and the world, we believe this ‘comfort’ is how life should be. When our boat starts to rock, we do what is necessary to return to the status quo of the previous comfort zone (programming). The ordinary, from which we became momentarily unsettled, is the default setting.

The other option: Wake-Up to something more, ExtraOrdinary  within us and outside of us.

While in the past there has been a preference to remain asleep, this is changing. Let me say here, I don’t believe people are making the conscious choice to stay asleep. This isn’t a judgment call. It’s been an overall state of mind, that as a population we’ve been lulled into. I believe there is a deeper force which programs that ‘comfort’ of the ordinary. Here’s an illustration:

One day a couple of years ago, I was having a talk with a friend. The day was beautiful and we were out for a walk. It was not long after the Ferguson riots began, and my friend was understandably feeling the pain about the violence taking place. We had stopped at the park to rest, sitting on the grass and I began to share some information that I had come across regarding this.

I thought this was the perfect opportunity to open a conversation. I shared that according to some of the sources I’d read, that these racial upsets weren’t an accident. That there was evidence of a larger plan to begin destabilizing our population, inciting hatred and fear, to create deeper division among the population. I also made the comment that according to what I’d heard, there would be more blatant episodes of racial violence in the near future. (Which there were.)

As I shared, my friends eyes began to glaze over. I received a blank stare of silence. And then she repeated her confusion, that she didn’t understand why there was so much violence taking place. With her next sentence, she then changed the subject to the park and weather. No questions. No disagreement. No challenging me in what she may have perceived as conspiracy thinking. No indication that I had shared anything at all.

In another example of collective programming, many people are more apt to remain in circumstances which breed stress, depression, unhappiness, and frustration, particularly in the the case of ones professional/work life, than be open to seeing an alternative way of living. Being open to an alternative doesn’t necessarily mean easy or without effort. When introduced to options or a plan of change, there is an unconscious clinging to the mode of rationalizations as to why life needs to remain as it is. It’s this kind of programming that we aren’t even aware of most of the time.

The programs run through us, like a computer. They’ve been ‘downloaded’ into our mind, heart and cellular structure, by society, family, education, religions and our own past experiences. They run unquestioned, automatically in the background. When they are questioned, the ‘regulation button’ (the programmed habitual thinking) is pushed, the glaze comes over the brain, and the ‘does not compute’ signal is activated. It happens so quickly and subtly, most of the time this process isn’t even recognized consciously.

New awakening signals are breaking up the old sleep signals!

The programs connect to beliefs/feelings about survival, love, security, power, abandonment, ability, and freedom, to name a few. The list goes on to include every story we believe about ourselves, others, and life. To challenge the programming, means to greatly upset the boat, which is our mind. It will challenge our beliefs of who we are, who we think others are, what we believe about life, what we believe we deserve or don’t deserve, whether we believe we have the power to change or create in our lives, etc.

For some people, there is a deep unconscious resistance to NOT grow in ways that expand our consciousness and NOT challenge the beliefs of how we’ve been programmed. Growth, change, expansion can indeed be hard and uncomfortable, but ultimately the reward is freedom. It can be painful, but the reward is joy and peace. It can be scary, but the reward is inner power and great success.

We’re opting to grow through the discomfort to realize our Joy!

We could look at two examples of familiar paths people choose (subconsciously) to live. One being, a desire to live a life that is comfortable, predictable, and with unchallenged beliefs or emotional discomfort. A second familiar path, is one of great continued stress, difficulty, emotional pain, or fear that also becomes comfortable, and thrives like addictions do, in unending cycles.

As a new concept is introduced, the ‘regulation button’ is triggered as soon as concepts or information are introduced into the mind. If it doesn’t fit into one’s present belief system or paradigm, or if it feels to strange, big, or overwhelming,  the ‘regulation button’ is pushed, tripping the signal to ‘go back to sleep.’  The internal counter reaction to expanding our consciousness, says ‘Don’t look there. Stay here, nice and cozy and comfortable.’ ‘That’s crazy talk!’ ‘I could never do that.’ etc. This in no way serves the Highest Good of Who We Really Are. It doesn’t serve the Highest Good for humanity or our planet. It only serves the agenda of other forces which desire to have control over us, via our programmed sleep.

The invitation is to all of us, to continually step into active inquiry as to how we are living our life. We are becoming more conscious, dynamic, and responsible, by reflecting and asking ourselves the hard questions. We are also becoming more willing to do the inconvenient actions in our life to continue to awaken. It is the risk of changing whatever our norm is that delivers many unexpected gifts.

There is no end to the awakening process! There is no finish line, just continued expansion.

2017 has ushered in a painful wake-up call to many with a new president bringing great upheaval, forcing all who have been asleep to wake-up. For many this process is excruciating and terrifying. Going back to sleep is becoming more and more difficult, as it should be. Why? Because we are here to truly awaken to our Selves, in both our darkness and our Light.

We are pulling out of the arms that embrace us tight & hold us in a programmed slumber!

The jig is up! We are here to awaken, evolve, transform, and create magic and mayhem full of Light and Love. But we must unfurl ourselves from the arms that hold us in a false embrace of safety and comfort. We are here to pull away from the bearer of our sleep (programming), pull out of these arms, and stand tall in our Light, our Brilliance, our Power. To take responsibility for honoring ourselves as a divine humanity, awaken and become ready to transform into all of our highest qualities. We are here to rise forth and claim our right to Joy, Peace, and Loving Power.

Blessings in Our Collective Awakening!

Are You Ready to Choose Flight?

I’ve been singing some Carol King lately, with the slight change of the lyrics . . . I feel the earth move under my feet, I feel continuous walls of attachments & resistance crumbling down. I feel the sky tumbling down . . . With every release of old beliefs, stories, personality traits, whenever Spirit’s around . . .

Little did I know I had the expectation to return to a caterpillar stage & create a new groove at the start of the year. Instead the butterfly keeps emerging rapidly.

I’ve given up on finding a new routine, which I’d hoped I’d be able to ground in once I rounded this monumental corner of transformation, which I’ve been longing for, for eons it seems. Especially at this time of quickening evolution on the planet & mind blowing revelations when witnessing our human experiences . . . New, new, new. It’s sort of like being in a carnival fun house trying to find sure footing on the ever shifting floor beneath your feet. Some moments it’s amusing, others it’s anxiety producing, and many other moments you just want the ride to stop.

Instead it’s an on-going dance of new phases & stages of becoming nothing of who I used to be. I know that many of you know this feeling right now. Awakening & awakening & awakening to ever new levels of Self, Love, dimensions, divinity & assistance from beyond the veil.

The new stability is found in the heart & in the growing direct experience, rather than that which we can touch & see. It’s a constant re-aligning of action & surrender, intent & consent to the Divine flow. This is what we signed up for. We consented to go on this earthly ride at this time, to bring in & anchor greater Light.

The more resistance to change at this time, the more challenges I find. And so, I continue to Let Go & fly!

Even as there are many of us who have been experiencing the process of awakening, as it is just that an on-going process, there are many of our brothers & sisters who this may be their maiden voyage, and what a time to begin . . . Although, awakening is the purpose of this time on this planet. This time may be wrought with much unexpected, therefore I feel it’s up to all of us to come together & share our experience, strength & hope.

Change is knocking on many hearts. If there is only an understanding of a world that is linear, rational, goal oriented, work, entertainment, & processing the duality of our present political climate, when change begins to tug at you, it may not make sense.

Many people know that their old ways aren’t working any more. They feel the stress, the exhaustion, the phantom illnesses, the rising anxiety & the debilitating depression, the yearning for something new. Some realize that they are being programmed to be distracted, and follow the distractions the next moment. Others are gaining the recognition that they are comfortably numb.

There is a growing awareness & desire for something more. Something deeper. Something more sacred. Something more fulfilling & enlivening. But there is the catch. To give life to the new will require change. Change will be uncomfortable. Period.

As soon as the heart & soul reach out to inquire for the new, the life of the creative feminine force within them, the knee-jerk reactions say:
“Oh No! I just don’t have the time.”
“Oh No! My spouse would never go for that.”
“Oh No! I couldn’t take that kind of time, that would be so selfish.”
“Oh No! I can’t afford that.”
“Oh No! But what if I fail?”

All of these rebuttals, make perfect sense. They are rational, and any logical person would say, of course, ‘Stay where & how you are, there’s too much to lose. It’s better to be safe than sorry.’
This is the paradigm we are leaving behind, whether we are ready for it or not! The growing discomfort of this time is to push us out of our comfort zones, our programmed thinking. It’s asking us to question our beliefs.
Why do you believe what you believe?
Are those beliefs yours or passed on through society?
And finally, are those beliefs serving your personal highest good, bringing you joy at the end of the day & the highest good of our world at large?

This is the time to release our stuckness in the root chakras of scarcity, survival, fear, & cultural thought forms, in order to evolve & expand into who we truly are. It is the time where we are being asked to be accountable for who we choose to be, what we choose to contribute to the world, and do we choose to be a Light in the world or a shadow.

What needs to be brought into awareness is that when we choose not to inquire into ourselves as those questions invite, that IS our programming at work. This is the part of us that chooses the status quo of what is known, what is ‘comfortably numb’ verses joyful, celebrating wholeness, stepping into our purpose. This is the part of us that clings to the belief of limitation, rather than expand into abundance, desires to remain asleep, rather than awaken, that chooses to remain trapped in the servitude of programming, rather than experience a greater freedom. This is the part of us that chooses to hand over our personal power to authorities outside of our highest conscience and forfeit our sovereignty..

Change is indeed difficult. It can be confusing. It requires us to release the stability of outworn ways and grow in a faith & trust of the greatness within our soul. Change sets the stage for our transformation, and it doesn’t play by the rational rules. It plays by the rules of faith, creativity, inspiration & intuition. It introduces us to the direct experience of higher awareness, soul connection, & being true to one’s Self. It leads us to divine connection & divine knowing, which increases our Faith & Trust that we are not alone. Choosing change gives us the strength to resist falling prey to all the lies & programming of the world.

We can choose to stay in the stuckness today, a year, or 5 years from now. We’ll most likely continue seeing through the same eyes & often times carrying a heavier load. I’ve heard people say, ‘if only I’d taken that other path when I had the chance, my life could have been so much different.’ Well, this is true, and it’s also true that the path of choosing self-empowerment, self-love will always be there. Sometimes it just gets harder to see as time goes on.

We are given choices over & over again, moments when we are on that threshold again, to honor our Self fully and say
“Yes!” It’s time for something different.
“Yes! I choose to step out of my sleep walking & awaken to the truth that is calling from inside my heart.”
“Yes! I choose to face my fears, insecurities, in order to give life to my purpose & sacred calling.”
“Yes! I choose to go through the discomfort in order to access greater happiness, joy, trust, and faith.”

We all have these choices, on-going, and that is the joy and wonder of being a spiritual-human being evolving. My inner world & outer reality will continue to morph and transform, as I choose consistent awakening. This is such a powerful time to shine & radiate the Light within you. The path before you is open and calling. I hope, if you haven’t yet found you’re path, you join the growing numbers of change makers! Come fly with us!
The choice is yours! What will you choose?

Blessings ~ Lotus

Love+Purpose = Power

This is a call to your Soul, if you have not yet, please begin to birth and give Life to You!

“Who are you?”

The time is over of playing it safe, staying small. Tune in. Somewhere down deep, your truest Desires call. If you can’t hear them, then step back from distractions and chaos of the swirling world, designed to keep you confused, so you can’t be infused, with your Divine Truth!

In clarification, I’m not referring to desires of safety, pleasure, and needs of validation. I’m speaking of the Big Desires ~ those that the heart and soul are within you to birth, to be of service, to uplift, and transform yourself & inspire that in others. You see one is of the ordinary, it only knows how to take. The other is of the ExtraOrdinary! It is Life giving thus, we receive more Light.

“Why are you here?”

You are here for more than to work, be entertained, and die. Listen within to the Soul’s compelling call or cry, which is most likely irrational, but highly transformational. It expands your longing to express and create, to courageously step outside your norm and deviate. In other words, to change your ordinary experience of life, into a Sacred Life.

For me as a Lightworker & Wayshower, my deepest desires have been known since I was very young. The call to be of service to bring healing and love, where there was pain; to help others re-awaken to their own purity & divinity, which had been forgotten; to create the safety to dive deep into their own darkness, finding the revelation of their Light; to celebrate every level of expansion into the Wholeness/Wholyness, which they already are. To embody love and compassion, reflecting that reality where the trapping of judgment and shame reside.

Ah! But alas, I had to gift to myself these healing’s of remembering, awakening, and embodying, before the first of continuous birthing began, shedding the old and revealing the new ‘me,’ again and again.

We are not here to be sleep walking in forgetfulness of the radiance that WE ARE. That time is over. We aren’t here to feel powerless, when in fact we are POWERFUL beyond measure. This time is NOW. We are not here to be comfortably numb to our Soul passion and purpose. That is the past. Do Not be fooled or be satisfied with any less than this ~

“What enlivens your Spirit?”

This is the realization that more of us are waking up to. We’re joining together to create a new future, which requires we heal the abrasions within ourselves. It’s taken the chaos of our world turned up-side-down, to  shake and quake us awake. This intense shake-up has not been an accident and it hasn’t come about to simply restore the mundane to what was, so that we can go back to the comfort of sleep. It’s time to claim our power, but Not the power of muscle, might, control, and fear.

“What is your Sacred Purpose?”

This a call to Sacred Activism. A call to your Divine Right to a Sacred Life. Step into the radicalism and power of personal transformation, imbuing your core with Self-Love and Self-Honor. Step into the call of your heart, engage the fire of courage, to align with your deepest truth.

You see, when we give life to our Highest Purpose, that deep call that wishes to express through you, which is fueled by love, inspiration, and passion, regardless of how big or small, we become Empowered. We begin to gain the clarity that we each have Innate Power, which will only grows, as more of us step up and into this truth. When we learn how potent we truly are, we will no longer be dictated to by outside forces. We will no longer treat ourselves with neglect or rejection, which means we will not treat others as such either. When we embody the power of our own individual Love & Purpose, collectively we are serving the world for the Highest Good of All.

“What is your Divine Service?”

Play your unique role! Use your voice! Do what you love! Let your beautiful freak flag fly! Use the passion of Desire to align with your Sacred Purpose. This brings Joy into your life and that of others. The more empowered, fulfilled, joyful, happy, in our truth we are, the more we Desire this reality for others.

Practice the alchemy of emotion. Convert the dense into the Light. The tunnel vision blindness into expanded sight. Go forward in social and political activism, but fuel your Inner Power by actions infused with the passion and love of what you want to see created. Rather than the the exhausting, disappointing, and disempowering diluted fuel of anger, division and rage of what you hate.

“Are you ready to Empower yourself & Enliven your Life?”

Is there hesitancy? Resistance? Fear? It’s ok to be lost, confused, uncertain how to ignite this sacred transformation, if it’s new to your awareness. Ask questions. Seek those who inspire you to begin. Let what you Love inform you. Trust that the right assistance will be given when you reach out. We are all here to help one another.

 

The biggest challenge we all face is NOT what is outside of us. The biggest challenge is to become willing to reclaim and awaken to the wonderment and power that resides in each in us.

Blessings for this powerful time to be alive!

 

Support from the Energy of Resilience

Goodness how time has flown! There has been so much shifting, growth & many new lessons to share. The end of 2016 was amazing, powerful and transformative. I hope you experienced the same and are ready for an even greater quickening in 2017. Though there is much to catch up on, I’d like to start with this message.

Blessings! as we enter into February, Imbolc, also known in reverence to the Goddess Brigid, as we begin our ascent from winter, into the re-birthing of the Sun and the first sprouts of Spring which lies ahead.

As I was downloading new Light codes yesterday I received this:
‘You are receiving new codes that will bring resilience for all during this time of great transition. The energies of resilience will be required as minds are being stretched, turning upside down, & hearts are being compelled toward opening into love, amidst programmed fear & the desire for self-protection.

Resilience offers continued, renewed strength and conviction to rise up from the world’s truth into the truth of your own heart/soul/spirit. These new Light codes/energies will nourish the continued growth, to strive, then thrive in the new paradigm being created.

Humanity will find collapsing again & again within themselves, the ways (programs) of the past. This is part of the process. The old house must crumble before it can be rebuilt. Resilience will help you to return to the heart.

The encouragement we offer is, for those who have not begun to connect inwardly through meditation/prayer/contemplation, to find the safe sanctuary within, you would be best served to begin now.
The necessary resilience will be found within, not from sources outside of you.

Those of you who have been practiced at this, it’s time to deepen even more. We aren’t referring to a hobby or simply for stress reduction, though sometimes that has been the desire starting point. Now however, we are talking about stepping into the next level of the evolutionary state of ‘who you are.’

You will only find this truth by an on-going, continued deepening process. This is the foundation of the renewed creation. This is the entrance into the future paradigm.’

If you would like support in learning to meditate or other practices which support your spiritual path, contact me and we can find what feels most aligned for you.

In Love & Resilience!

Lotus

Say ‘Yes!’to Your Wholyness

The powers of my divine purpose are now activated through the qualities of Love & Joy!

As our divine powers activate, they are communicated and embodied through our Highest Self. As our Higher Self aspects trigger our divine remembrances, we follow the voice of guidance, the voice of the divinity within.

In this way we are anchored into the truth of who we are.

Through embodiment of our divinity we become our Whole & Wholy Self.

We become the Light for others, a soul guide to leading them home to themselves, into their highest, just as those who have traveled before, have been loving guides for us!

Each time we say ‘Yes!’ the further we progress,

in integrating our Wholyness, into innate Luminous. 

It is through the trickling down, of love notes,

of light codes, through our crown, 

into our hearts, our Love abounds.

With Blessings of Love & Light ~

Rising with Care, Ease & Grace Pt 2

The intention of this article, is as a Part 2, of Rising with Care, Ease & Grace, Part 1. In that writing I outlined just a handful of common experiences some of us may be working with as our entire body is shifting, uplifting, and upgrading. I also share some specific tools for support. In this second part, I want to share some very basic information on how the Nervous System and Endocrine System can be supported as the influx of energies move into our physical bodies and subtle anatomy systems. This will give a focal point for extra nourishment.

I’m always enthused to suggest a must have book, if one is interested in science, dietary support, necessary minerals, Ayurveda, and practices for health during this time of spiritual evolution. I mentioned it in Part 1, it is once again, ‘Spiritual Nutrition ~ Six Foundations for Spiritual Life and the Awakening of Kundalini,’ by one of my most powerful teachers, Dr. Gabriel Cousens. He and his work can be found at The Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, in Arizona.

Some of this information is taken from Spiritual Nutrition. The process of Awakening is such a complex topic, which I won’t begin to go into . . . it’d be a book, which has already been written by a few others. So, I’m simply going to stay within this focused area of my experience that is pertinent to present time and points of reference from my own exploration.

To begin, we are all familiar with the subtle anatomy of the Chakra System. Just to recap: The chakras are subtle energy centers or vortexes, formed by the confluence of nadis. The nadis are 72,000 hollow channels, can be envisioned as similar to veins,  in the subtle body through which Kundalini energy flows. Gabriel Cousens has proposed that, there is the mundane Kundalini, which is innate within each of us, at the base of the spine, and the spiritual Kundalini which flows in through the crown chakra. It has also been mentioned that other entry points are at the Heart and Solar Plexus chakras

On the physical plane, the chakras are connected to the Nervous System and Endocrine System. Cosmic energy is drawn in through the subtle anatomy and energizes the Nervous System and Endocrine System. Within the Endocrine System we find glands that govern our health, via production and balance of hormones, regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sleep, mood, and sexual function. These are the primary ways we are served & vitalized with this system.

The Endocrine System is comprised of: Pituitary/Pineal Glands; Thyroid; Thymus; Adrenal/Pancreas; Ovaries; Testes. If we correlate these with the Chakra system, we see this alignment:

Third Eye & Crown: Master Glands or Pituitary/Pineal  Illu_endocrine_system_New

Throat: Thyroid 

Heart: Thymus

Solar Plexus: Adrenal/Pancreas

Sacral: Ovaries

Root: Testes

 

One of the significant aspects for our purposes here, in understanding this process, is that as the Kundalini (mundane & spiritual) begins her movement, the ‘voltage’, the electric force within our body increases. I’d just like to note that many speak of the ascending of this divine energy as a systematic and orderly rising through each chakra, base to crown. My experience on this and many others who experience the visceral, intelligent free flow of active Kundalini, is that it is not a linear movement. It spirals, ebbs & flows, ( just as the feminine force that Kundalini is, would move in) through out the body, clearing and purifying, revisiting areas of the body and consciousness, in the perfect order for each individual. Yes, it’s always upwardly intentioned, but not necessarily orderly.

The example has been given many times that the awakening of Kundalini and her increased energy would be like putting a light bulb that holds 100 volts into a socket which 1000 volts will be pouring through. The light bulb would shatter. With this example in mind, we can see that as energy rises and enters into the body, our Nervous System and other systems of the body must be strong enough to hold the current.

I invite you to check in with your own body. Are you anxious? Do you have trouble sleeping? Have you found you have headaches, which was a rare event in the past? Do you have excess or too little Cortisol in your system? Do you have Adrenal fatigue? Do you feel like you feel like you want to sleep all the time? Do you feel ‘something’ pulling at you to ‘go within’?  Are your hormones becoming more erratic? Do you feel depressed unexpectedly? Do you become filled with new energy and insights in spurts? Has your body led you to make significant changes in your diet?  Have you been experiencing heart palpitations? Do you have shortness of breath? 

The many paths of yogic teachings, which include the 8 limbs of Patanjali are the science of Kundalini Awakening AND that of holding the divine force within the body, safely. In brief, the 8 limbs cover the ‘do’s & do not’s’ of ethical observances; physical yoga postures; breathing & control of prana; control of the senses; concentration & inner awareness; devotion & meditation on the Divine; Divine Union. The science of yoga is to prepare us, in body, mind, & heart for the awakening of the Divine within us. To ensure that our bodies and minds could handle the massive transformation which takes place during the process of awakening.

While it’s true our whole being is profoundly impacted, the Endocrine System & Nervous System are greatly affected with the increase of energy into our being.

At this point I’m going to shift gears. As I’ve shared previously, we have moved beyond the time of the isolated individual Kundalini awakenings. We could say now that the Earth’s Kundalini is now rising, which effects us all, collectively. In my thought process, this has transitioned into merging with the Ascension camp. Ascension is the big jump in our spiritual evolution, that is the mass Awakening. Same process as Kundalini but it’s sped up!

Humanity isn’t ascending in order to leave this planet. We are drawing down divine energies from the cosmos (spiritual Kundalini)  to become divine beings, here on Earth. As many of us have been experiencing, our bodies are feeling the surges. This is a process of Embodiment.

The many Ascension symptoms are condensed experiences of  the former, (before 2012/2014) gradual Kundalini purification processes. Taking care of our bodies is paramount for a rising into the new higher frequencies, energies, with ease and grace.( See Part 1.)  As vibrations, frequencies increase and heighten, this also happens in our body.

With this awareness, we can make sure that we are supporting the Endocrine System with whole organic, foods, minerals, hydration, time in Mother Nature, and exercise, to keep our body strong. Sleep is of the utmost importance, and our Nervous System will directly affect this. More sleep is needed nowadays, less stimulation, especially when there are strong cosmic energies flooding our planet and body. The sleep allows the body to receive the energies in a restful state so they can be more easily integrated. When we resist the naps, the sleeping in, the days when we just can’t seem to wake up, the process is more challenging.

Energy work is another powerful way to keep our body, mind, and heart feeling balanced, cleared and harmonized. Now more than ever, our alternative, natural, and energetic modalities of care are becoming more effective. As our being reduces density, and increases in higher frequencies, the old paradigm of health care & healing will be outdated.

I understand that we have lives to maintain. We feel we need to function in the world to keep up with our responsibilities. If this path is new to you, if this information is new to you, just allow yourself to imagine that, maybe what has been known isn’t supposed to be maintained, in the way your mind believes. Allow yourself to imagine that the world is not supposed to continue to function in the way it’s been functioning are. And lastly, imagine that you are being called to become transformed into the highest, most beautiful aspects of your Soul. This is a whole other topic! So I’ll stop with these seeds planted.

If any of this intrigues you, then I invite you to begin to explore how you can best support the Endocrine System and Nervous System. I invite you to begin to really listen to your body when it communicates its most nourishing needs to you. And, if you feel so called, I highly recommend Gabriel’s book, listed above. It’s a whopper of amazing insight and experiential knowledge.

These are truly epic times we’re in. If you feel called to learn more regarding your individual needs, to learn how to more effectively navigate your own transformation of awakening. you can contact me here.

I’ll be sharing next on the high frequencies of Essential Oils to assist in the raising of our frequencies at this time in Part 3. Until then, take care of your whole self, so that you may journey with Ease & Grace!

The Dance

In this moment what is your body communicating? 

Just take a moment, close your eyes, take a couple of breaths and feel . . .  

I’m posing this question from my own need to check-in, reflect within, sense what is, Get Real with myself, so to speak.

The last 4 or 5 days I’ve been setting up a new MindBody account, as I’m now at a point of expanding my business. One truth about me is that I love the start-up’s to new projects. I get inspired by the process of new beginnings. There is invigoration that I gain from creating something new. The mind gets jazzed. Envisioning brings new possibilities. And even the challenges of technology, for a non-techy sort, like myself, feeds me.  This ones mind does like to be challenged and engaged! That is true.

Another truth about me, is that while I feel energized by the above scenario, there usually comes the wall I’m now hitting. I’m agitated. My body feels contracted. My mind is not feeling clear. And, my energy system is feeling weakened due to the way I’ve been utilizing my energy. Coupled with too much time on the computer,  its EMF’s which I’ve mentioned in the past, are draining my system further. The invigoration and inspiration have diminished. The commitment to follow-through, while has remained present for the last day or so regardless, is now just wanting this set-up to be done.  For me all of this is an indication that I’ve been too much in the mind, in the thinking masculine.

This is just an example of a bigger picture and deeper question. How often are your inner masculine & feminine fighting with one another or making love with each other? How do you function within your own inner feminine & inner masculine energies? Are they balanced? Do they dance in harmony? Do you lean more toward one than the other?

For me, a pattern has been one extreme to the other. While I’m consistently trying to navigate this dance and truly honor both aspects of the mind and heart, action and rest, will and surrender, the lessons always demand more subtle honing.

Early in the week I was feeling feeling fulfilled, unattached to ‘getting this done’ and combining the ‘doing’ (masculine) with organic flow (feminine).  I felt open and spacious, (feminine qualities) as I moved forward, in step by step doing, (masculine qualities).  As more of the details are slowing me down, attachment is growing, and I feel the push to completion, even though the mind isn’t really as clear.

Energetically, I think many of us can relate to this dynamic. There is probably a fair number of us which tend toward feeling this imbalanced masculine drive, push, attached, need to control, ‘get things done’ in our day to day life.

I know the answer for me is just what I’m doing. I felt inspired to process this pattern here, to be followed by letting go for now, for today, maybe for tomorrow of the constriction of energy that cuts me off from  my center.  The outdoors call. The time to simply listen to music, color, putz around the house, and allow the opening to occur naturally. Enter into the feminine space.

Once I soften, once I let go of the minds obsession with completion ‘right now’, once I relax into my body again, I’ll be re-energized, replenished, clear, inspired, and flow into the completion with ease. Once again my feminine & masculine will be functioning in harmony & balance. But for now, space for her grace is calling.

I’ve learned that when I carry out work in my life, from a true organic rhythm of balanced doing & flow, the satisfaction of what I’m doing runs deep. Authenticity is present. Alignment enables clear seeing. Presence allows joy in any from of work at hand.

Even as I’ve written, I’m feeling my breath flow more easily, relaxation settle into my muscles, my heart is softening & my mind is letting of control. With that I bid you farewell for now.

And back to the original question: What is your body communicating in this moment? What does it need to be in harmony with your inner masculine & feminine?  Which aspect needs your attention for them to dance in Joy together, through your body, heart & mind?

In Harmony ~

Navigating the Lion’s Gate Portal

Here we are in another big shower of divine energies, serving to upgrade and upshift our consciousness and open our hearts! This cycle finds us just on the eve of the Lion’s Gate Portal happening tomorrow, August 8 ~ 8/8.  There is much information about this configuration that takes place every year, although news on the street, is that this year, we’ve been in an extra powerful Lion’s Gate cycle. Here’s a link for more insight,.

However, what I’d like to share about today, are some helpful hints to create ease and grace during this time and beyond.

The first and primary tool for all of us, is to remember, always to ground; connect to the Heart of Mother Earth and spend time in her abundant beauty.  This lifts our heart, opens out mind, balances out imbalances due to modern life, and increases our frequency.

Secondly, as we move forward, the new energies will be ushering in more of the ‘unseen’ to be ‘seen.’ Aspects of the brain, normally untapped will be/are being activated, allowing accessibility to more subtle realms. Our energy systems are also becoming more sensitive, so perceiving on all levels is increasing. Those of us already privy to these understandings can be of great support to those just ‘waking up’ to the subtleties. The more grounded we are, the higher vibration we’re holding, the greater heart/faith centered our support will be.

Thirdly, one of the gifts of the shifts we’ve been going through, is that we have much assistance in clearing our detrimental beliefs and programming. And as much as this is true, during this time, it’s important to continue to acknowledge and become willing to release habits that register in the lower vibrational range. Becoming more adept at consciously creating the qualities of Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Inner Peace, etc will support the new frequencies.

Because we attract what we vibrate, both in our thoughts AND from the healed/unhealed subconscious, this can impact what we begin to ‘see’ as the veils of the ‘unseen’ are lifted. The higher frequency, the more Love & Compassion we’re cultivating, will bring to our awareness more of the Light of the subtle realms. The opposite may be said if we aren’t actively taking responsibility for the healing of our own heart and psyche.

If support and tools are needed for deeper healing, see here.

When we are healing the denser energies of our own experience and perceptions, those energies that are shadow aspects of each chakra become balanced, functioning from the divine qualities of heart and mind, inherent within each of us.

We can see how these three points can be interlinked to help our expansion of both consciousness and Love. The process of Awakening asks for our active participation. We aren’t simply bystanders awaiting for magic to strike.  We must co-create the magic with the divine assistance. This is our learning in how we connect to our own divinity, and help the whole human family to rise collectively.  May we all be prepared to cross the Lion’s Gate threshold of Love, Light, and Abundance, in Joy and Peace.
