Winter’s Call

Gratitude continues to expand these days for many things. One of which is being in a part of the country with the change of seasons. I’ve always thought of myself as a sun-baby … which I am really, however living both in SoCal/LA & Arizona before that, I have so much appreciation for the clouds, the brisk chill/cold & ironically, I may even welcome snow when it arrives!

Staying in tune with the cycles of Mother Nature have been important for harmonizing & balancing on all levels of my being. Living in mostly perpetual sunshine & heat, for the past years, I felt I had to self-impose the quietude & dormancy my body & mind craved, while all around me the sun energy provoked activity & inspiration.

During the winter, a time of crone-hood, my hibernation felt out of place, with the continuous liveliness of the maiden-sunshine. The death processes that often required long periods of sleep or melancholy, were harder to sink into.

This year, in the mid-west, I feel in sync, in tune, the outer is reflecting the inner. The elements are working in tandem with my energy. As we move toward the Winter Solstice, I’m doing the necessities of the day to day, yet on my days off relishing in naps, going to bed earlier, getting up a little later. Taking baths. Meditating more through out the day. Letting the death process unfold of this highly transformative last year.

There are more layers simply falling away, the more that I enter into ‘just being.’ Once again, I have a place where I can stretch out, snuggle in & do absolutely nothing but watch the clouds. Even though we’ve had some great sunny days, the crispness of the air and the bare trees, remind me to keep letting go. To go within. To slow down. To trust in the wisdom that unfolds from the crone/the wise woman within. Chew the cud of all the lessons learned & allow the soil for the coming spring to grow fertile in this dark time of the year.

I’m grateful for the grace & nourishment that emerges when aligning & balancing to what is true within. This more often than not, means consciously unplugging & deprogramming from the voices/energy of the collective consciousness, that compels us to constantly go & do, strive & distract from the inner quietude that the winter season gently lulls us toward.

Mother Nature is teaching us, mirroring our own nature to us, through her cycles. However it’s up to me/us to glean the wisdom she imparts, not through words or the intellect, but from the body, the heart & Being.

As we move into the longest night of the year, may we all feel the blessings, nourishment & wisdom from our own crone-nature, that speaks to us in the dark quietude of Soul.
 & Winter Solstice Blessings ~

You are a Divine Human, Becoming What You’ve Always Been

I often find myself repeating,

“This is not a metaphor”

along the path of spiritual unfolding.

The awakening process is a very dynamic & on-going process, with stages & phases, and more stages & phases. The courage that it takes to continually & consciously travel its path requires a funny kind of will. The willingness to surrender.

It’s in the surrender that the expressions of the Divine become manifest in our humanness. Our humanness is indeed the container that is meant to hold the frequencies of divine Light & Love.
This is not a metaphor.

The awakening process allows the human body/systems/energetics to transform, in order to hold & express Divinity here on Earth. This time of Ascension, Awakening, are preparing our beings as vessels of Love.

This is magical.

This is alchemical.

This is evolution.

This is natural.

This is literal 🙂 This is not a metaphor 

You are a Divine Human, Becoming what you’ve always been.

We are all opening, expanding, rising to a new way of being!
What a ride of wonderment, for each of us in our own way!
❤ & Blessings ~

Are You Digging or Soaring?

Once upon a time, we lived under a spell of blindness, a darkness, tunneling away under ground, like little moles, striving to get somewhere, but unclear where that really was. We were governed by fear & survival instincts, trying to remain safe.

Then we evolved to experience the nature of beauty & ease as our perception felt the bounty, as it ran through the trees & meadows, topside. With many distractions to soothe anxieties of the unknown, our consciousness altered with glimpses of freedom, yet always the undercurrent of fight/flight presence. Like a deer, there has been a vigilance of guarding our well-being, playing by the rules laid forth by ‘nature’.

Now we are evolving once again. We are becoming the soaring & grace of birds. With this new birds-eye-view, it’s easier to see the ways of limited perception, the perception still harnessed-yet loosening the earth plane. As we ride the waves of the wind, we see the group thought/hive mind/programmed thinking that has held us all in bondage, whether we’ve been aware or not. We see the chaos & turmoil in many directions, attempting to keep us chained to insecurity, division, confusion & fear. From this vantage point of expanse, we can see the false teachings that humanity is somehow ‘bad’, however now we witness the true radiance of our Light rising from the surface.

For now we are experiencing a mass awakening, the Ascension process knocking on our heart’s door, inviting us to step simultaneously upward & inward, raising our frequency to imbibe the essence of our Truth.

And in its rise, the purging of illusion pours forth. But don’t stay focused there. The hypnotics may pull your awareness back down into the tunnel.

At this juncture we each have a choice to make moment to moment, day to day…

From where will you perceive?

From grace, freedom & Light?

From addiction to suffering, your fears & following the voice of group thought-programs?

We are asked to continue to choose our healing, in order to access the Knowing that we are Whole/Wholy …

What are you choosing?

We are assisted with greater force to heal what keeps us stuck in that which locks us in our fears. We are assisted to realize that there are greater heights to rise in our awareness & continuous depths we can grow in Love. We are realizing that all of that which helps us to soar is found within the love & honor for ourselves, so that we can love & honor others.

Birds are akin to Angels, some say. We are being called to spread our wings, rise above into the New Earth … Which in essence is creating a new world right here- a new paradigm for living in freedom & joy, As we anchor the Light that has always been within us here on our planet, the frequency of all beings rise.

Can you feel it’s time to let go of these old ways & choose your freedom?

Blessings in Choosing the Highest ~

Integrating Shadows Past

Settling into myself this evening after what feels like many days of going & doing.

My husband and I have moved from Los Angeles to Tulsa, Oklahoma. It’s been a flurry of transition since June, the heat of summer to now, October, feeling the chill of fall. Earlier tonight the call inward, to return to the sacred embrace of Divine Mother spoke loud & clear. The previous opportunities I’ve had for down-time, inward-time, has lessened greatly with the new life that has been unfolding, and I savor the snippets I get to settle into stillness and inner quietude.

My practice as of late has been of the soul retrieval nature. Returning to the places where I’d left pieces of myself in Tulsa. The shadow of this lost, wild child, angry,  teen-age alcoholic rebel, of 30+ years ago has loomed large since I departed this town. I flung many judgments her way. Much shame was buried, until it wanted to surface, that is.

She/me is now held in my loving embrace, being integrated into a new level of wholeness. She/I was really so much sweeter than I had allowed her/me to be. Acknowledged, seen, heard, & loved, she/me leaves behind those times in the dark, to celebrate the wisdom in the light.

The memories seep through the humidity of the summer and the cool breezes as the cold approaches. The weather here carries a surprising amount of recall, through my body. It also shares visions the younger me in ‘this park’ or with ‘that person’ or ‘walking down that street’ … through much wiser eyes and a softer heart.

I’ve had many tears flow in the release of shame that I see now was unwarranted. Mistakes and choices, were made back then that can be labeled as ‘bad,’ but that no longer holds weight. as we all do our best to make our way through tough, tender years.

I reclaim myself from where I gave my love in order to learn lessons of the depths of compromise and self-negation. I reclaim myself from holding on to the innocence lost, expecting the power of love and validation to come from outside.  I reclaim myself from the addiction to suffering, from living in the past.

Each layer that rises with the initial imprint of fear, sorrow, loss, shame, etc. I hold myself and remind myself of the innate preciousness that has always been. I bring all of me back into this present Now Moment.

There is a re-patterning of this town as time-lines collapse with each layer of integration. The past fades into this life, here, now, full of Light, Wisdom & Divine Knowing of the perfection of all that has passed.  I walk with a new freedom into each moment, a clear mind, a softer heart, with more space for the Presence of Divine Grace, to make a home within.

There may be more to be revealed, to heal, to integrate, in this town. Time will tell.

But each step of the way, I know the truth beyond anything pulls me momentarily into the undertow.  I know that I am a precious, divine being, seeing beyond these human experiences.

May we all reclaim our past/future, which separate us from the divinity within and live in the fullness of our Light & Truth Now.

Many Blessings on the never-ending journey ~

Would You Want to KNOW …?

This is a post which segues from my norm. We all have our soul missions, so to speak, that we are here to bring forth. Though this post reflects an aspect of my own education, which serves my awakening journey, it is not my mission (at least at this time) to make this my public voice or expression. I’m making an exception however, as it continues to come to my attention that we, as a collective, are grossly uninformed regarding a much wider scope of the chaos in our world.  There are those who are stepping up grandly to share & teach bravely about the ‘hidden agendas’,  from whom I continue to lean, and those who are ready & willing to open to new information & new ways of thinking … in essence, more are ready to take the ‘red pill’ & awaken to a next level of understanding.

While the very latest tragedy in Las Vegas & the destruction in Puerto Rico, have been pivotal to writing this, its fuel has been culminating over the last couple of years. Briefly, I will say I (nor many others who have been preparing for this time ) am not surprised by anything that is taking place. I understand it all as a part of a necessary, major dismantling of the existing systems, as well as a needed shaking up of the individual/collective consciousness in order to awaken. This is a time of evolution/revolution & spiritual awakening. Any growth involves growing pains.

While most see the many destructive deeds/events taking place as political, personal rights/freedoms, economic, good vs bad, right vs. wrong, for me, the prism also includes that of an overarching spiritual revolution.

Many of the events that have been taking place, of which I first became aware awareness with the Ferguson shootings. We (Byron & I ), & the seekers among us, expected the upheaval. Not the details, but the events to provoke societal & racial upheaval had already been disclosed/predicted at least 1-2 years before hand. So, as those events and many others unfolded, we were prepared emotionally.  We watched them unfold not with shock & fear, but with the fore-knowledge of the pre-meditated actions being carried out to unhinge society.

We knew, because we wanted to know. There were many things we had been researching, because we wanted to know. Did we learn too, to be discerning? Yes. Did we learn how to find information & sources we could trust? Yes.  Did we feel unnerved & our minds stretched to the edge a couple of times? Yes. Did we feel more empowered by what we learned, verses frightened or powerless? YES!

I felt sadness & frustration yesterday at work, when 2 co-workers, 2 friends, were having an argument about gun control & the Las Vegas shooting. All over FB, the sides are taken regarding this issue which has been going on with heat for years.  There has been a pattern in the world & in the news of one calamity after another. The focus is on guns, then as we calm down, we get hit with destructive weather, creating sorrow, worry, fear. Just as we get a reprieve, the focus is on racial violence, brutality & injustice. Then just as that begins to settle down, we see presidential drama & anger forge to the forefront. And round and round it goes to the threat of the KKK resurgence, before more extreme weather… etc.

Interestingly though, when thousands of arrests were made this year, of major pedophile rings that included wealthy elite, politicians & those that run Hollywood, nothing was noted. Although the news was carried by major newspapers, it was quietly ushered under the table. Again, many of us who Want to KNOW, have known about these secret underground happenings for quite some time. We are ok being called crazy or conspiracy theorists when the topics come up, because the truth always surfaces. But if you don’t want to know, you won’t.

Do you Want to KNOW why this news is of major importance?

Only by you Wanting to KNOW, what you may not know, can you help bring the dark into the Light. We are each responsible. If we choose to remain in ignorance, we are a part of the problem, not the solution, not the change.

To me, it feels like there is a rotation of issues to ignite our fear, hatred, anger, & grief, in ways that keep us on a merry-go-round of emotional turmoil & fighting with one another.  The big invisible plan/agenda/game works. The mass infighting is the proof. The heartaches, the fears, the rage & indignation, are all proof that we are just where the ‘powers that be’ want us … looking everywhere but at the them & what’s going on behind the curtain.

Don’t misunderstand any of this as to say, ‘everyone in places of power’ are bad guys, or  evil, or out to get us. But it is to say that there are many things & people that are in no way what they appear. This post is not a rant, a reactive ‘conspiracy’ theory. This is not coming to you from fear, alarmist, or to provoke anxiety.

The intention is to bring awareness to those who really may not realize that something much bigger is taking place. It’s for those who feel lost & powerless, confused & sickened by the spinning out of control of everything around them. It’s to bring a new way to regain an inner peace in the midst of chaos, and to point the way to maintain love & harmony & compassion, in these time of great change. It is also to pointedly invite each of us to be aware what we are choosing, what we are denying, where we are fearful to tread, but why we need to tread anyway.

The more informed we are, the more grounded, at peace, & empowered we are able to be. The more informed we are, the less able we are to be used as unconscious pawns in the game/agenda. The more informed we are, the more empowered we are, to turn our energy/attention to uniting with our fellow man, to turn a collective Light of awareness to those who are using us in our own destruction.

The more informed we are, the more we understand the necessity to heal our own unconscious wounds of darkness, because OUR darkness is assisting the big, invisible game to succeed. We have the power. The power is our own ability to be curious, to seek truth, and most importantly to KNOW THYSELF.

Do YOU want to know what’s going on behind the curtain?

Would YOU want to know …

Would you want to know ~ if you were being played as a pawn in a very big, invisible game?

Would you want to know ~ if the very people you have been taught to trust were Not what they appeared to be?

Would you want to know ~ if the systems you’ve been conditioned to believe in, were a part of the very big game (regardless of original intent)?

Would you want to know ~ that you are a slave to the system that exists?

Would you want to know ~ that your personal pain, fear, emotional wounds & trauma, are being used against you, to perpetuate your suffering?

Would you want to know ~ that you are addicted to suffering & violence?

Would you want to know ~ if your own conditioned addiction to suffering was being exploited & amplified to serve a hidden purpose/agenda?

Would you want to know ~ if those in power created scapegoats to carry out their agenda’s though mind-control?

Would you Want to know ~ that there are many ways in which you are under the ‘spell’ of subtle mind control techniques right now?

Would you Want to know ~ that real people are dying & being harmed as a part of hidden purpose/agenda – not by happenstance, religious terrorists, or lone shooters, but by those who have gained your trust?

Would you Want to KNOW that those we have been taught trust in, are actually the very ones carry out actions that cause death, human/drug trafficking, etc.

Would you Want to KNOW ~ that as long as your attention & energy is focused at fighting one another, this IS HOW the hidden agenda keeps power?

Would you want to know that ~ your votes, petitions, & protests are in essence fruitless, as long as the big, invisible, game/agenda has the power?

Would you want to know ~ that you may be powerless … but ONLY to the degree that you are functioning in the mindset of the systems that no longer work?

Would you want to know ~ that as long as you believe that those in power have our best interest at heart, you are unconsciously playing the big, invisible game?

Would you want to know ~ that the change you seek will come only to the degree that each of you WANTs to KNOW?

You have to Want to know the TRUTHs.

You have to Want to KNOW, no matter how much that shakes up our world view.

You have to Want to KNOW, bad enough to do the work to research through alternative sources, information, & educate yourself.

You have to Want to KNOW, enough to look a little crazy to those who DON’T want to know.

You have to Want to KNOW how to unplug from the merry-go-round & gamut of intense emotions in order to find other solutions.

You have to Want to KNOW why & how your energy of fear, anger, rage, & hatred is being used as fuel to ‘unseen powers that be.’

You have to Want to KNOW, MORE than you feel compelled, to give into your knee-jerk reactions to keep fueling fires with fighting & blaming one another, pointing fingers at either political party, fear, anger & hatred.

You have to Want to KNOW enough to start doing your own inner reflection to call out your own unconscious prejudice, anger, hatred & grief … that already lives within you.

You have to Want to KNOW, that it is your own unconscious darkness, that gives life to the darkness outside of you.

You have to Want to KNOW enough to let you mind be stretched & the world as you know it to crumble.

You have to Want to KNOW that you are powerless, ONLY as long as you are blind to the big. game & yourself.

You have to Want to KNOW that YOU are responsible for creating a different world.

You have to Want to KNOW HOW to hold the new responsibility for creating a different world.

You have to Want to KNOW the Truths, before the next level solutions can be activated.

You have to Want to KNOW/learn how to love yourself, so you can love your neighbor, no matter their differences.

You have to Want to KNOW yourself as the Soul, the Light that you are, instead of the identification with your beliefs, societal programming, religious indoctrination, emotions, & stories.

The hand of invitation is extended by myself & many others, who can share information to awaken & empower your presence in this world;  to point you in the direction of freedom from the unconscious suffering & recalibrating your being toward the vibrations of Love, Peace, Harmony; to help you unplug from the instigators which trigger your habitual emotional reactions & to help you realize the truest Truth of Who You Really Are … But you have to Want To …

Love & Blessings ~

Judgment & Prejudice

One of the quickest ways for me to see & let go of some of my most uncomfortable belief patterns is when I see them mirrored back to me, in another person. Particularly judgments. It’s amusing to me how often I can be aware of a judgment, know where it’s rooted, do my best to intercept the pattern consciously, and yet when I feel it rising, it shoots out my mouth or through me body, as if from its own free will.

And then there comes that magic moment. . .  when a friend, family member or complete stranger acts out my judgement, portrays it, in all of its reflected glory back at me. Usually it triggers the utter distaste I feel towards them. But the truth is, that the distaste is really about that energy within myself, as I experience the mirror of my own belief. Nine times out of ten, that’s all it takes. It registers in my body and memory in a way that brings such clarity from the outside in. Rarely do I have to ‘work’ at staying on top of it after that. It’s dissipated and vanished!

Prejudice works in the same way for me. Most of my life I didn’t recognize prejudice in myself. I was raised in a family that was very open, inclusive, and honored diversity in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc

When I stumbled along an unacknowledged prejudice within myself, I was surprised and ashamed. I hadn’t had the opportunity to take this specific judgement out of it’s neatly stored box, locked in a corner of my mind, until Life brought about a couple of trigger moments that delivered this shadow part of myself up to my awareness.

I truly didn’t like the way I felt when it would creep up on me. In it’s presence, I’d think the most awful things about a person that I didn’t even know, simply based on ethnicity, and stories which I had no basis for, which ran through my mind. The feelings and thoughts didn’t feel like who I knew myself to be. I knew it was important to not judge the judgments, but to observe myself with compassion. This was the only way that I would be able to explore this issue, learn from it as the teacher it was, and find a way to heal it in my heart. And that was a challenge.

At first I thought I could simply decide not to feel this way, based on what I intellectually knew I should believe and in essence, knew to be true. Unfortunately, mind over matter wasn’t the remedy.

Again, it was the reflection of a growing prejudice in our country over the last couple of years, that began force feeding me sentiments of this prejudice. Since the racial riots 3 years ago, the anti-semetic rhetoric bubbling up around the presidential election, to the wall being built, people being kept out of the country, to the looming threats of deportations . . .  I felt sickened every time for what was taking place, but also because there was a matching energy with my own heart & being. I knew this needed to change, and it could only begin with me.

So I began to ask questions of myself about this prejudice I was experiencing.

I looked back at my life. I drew out any memories I could find that might have influenced my feelings. Was I hurt at some point by someone of this ethnic group? Did I feel fearful that it would happen again? Was I taken advantage of? Was I trying to protect myself? Was I harboring some kind of anger? Did someone else share any kind of stories with me that could have given birth to this prejudice I was carrying?

I came up with nothing, other than perhaps the powerful effect of collective thought forms which so often we unconsciously absorb. These thought forms or programming can come from society, family, or other systems of indoctrination. Most of the time collective thought forms swoop up our own psyche without being deeply explored within the individual.

Then I began to look at the instances that triggered the awareness that I was ‘against’ a group of people.  What that began to reveal to me, was that I had a great fear. However, there was nothing to demonstrate an experience that would prompt this fear.

So I dug deeper.

And as I dug deeper, I became aware that I was carrying this fear from a past life. Through methods that have worked for me in the past for deep dives into my inner world, I found that I had been a victim to much violence, pain, rape, & suffering as a woman, in a life past. This then began to explain other aspects of my life all the way back to childhood fears, where my physical safety was of great concern to me.

A memory of unresolved fear and pain was the catalyst for my prejudice and misplaced judgments.

The healing had begun. Clarity was being gained. And in that clarity, the prejudice that I was carrying, based on deep seated fear and survival experiences from a time before this present life, my prejudice has lost it’s dark grip on my heart and soul.

It was the outed hatred, fear, anger, division, and pain amplified over these past years in the public arena, and full blown in the past months especially, that reflected the darkness held within me, to me.

We are all mirrors for one another. If we see anger, hatred, fear, blame, being projected outside to another, it is our job to turn our attention back toward ourselves. We need to look in the mirror, so that our healing can begin. In our own personal healing, we then create healing in the world. If we each took on this task of self-responsibility, there would be far less projection of these harmful beliefs forced on others in the world. We would begin to step forth into a new world experience.

We are all brothers and sisters of the world, in all of our differences & likenesses. In fact, I believe we have more similarities than differences. The more we learn to inquire as to the how’s and why’s we react to others in the way we do, the quicker we will find a new way of being together on this planet.

As we heal our own fear, anger, and pain, we then can begin to reflect our Love, Compassion, and Understanding out into the world, and begin receiving that mirrored reflection as well.

No one is going to save us from ourselves. Saving this world, creating harmony and making space for all of us to exist in peace, must begin within each of us, one by one. And truly, the sooner we each embark on this healing, the better off we all will be as one family.

When we see the truth of our own Light, we’ll see that reflected in our mirror.  How wonderful would that be?

Blessings as you look into the mirror ~ Lotus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Bliss of Waking Turns South

Over the many years of working with clients as they travel on their healing path, there is a common pattern. Expanded awareness, many AhHa moments, new freedom & bliss . . . and then things ‘turn south,’ or so it feels.

I’d been working with a lovely woman who was coming for sessions every 2 weeks. Her clarity was growing, old outworn patterns were releasing. Her connection to God and her guides was deepening. She was stepping into her true expression with greater confidence. She was feeling more self-love, more love and generosity for others, and rooting deeper into her sense of self-worth.  After a few months of working together she wanted to dive deeper, so we embarked on a 3 day intensive retreat.

She was a deep-diver over that weekend! She received greater clarity and released deep grief. Though she felt much lighter, with a joyful spaciousness, she also got ‘sick’ at the very end. By sick, as I’ve stated before, that word is a more familiar label for cleansing the emotional on the physical level. With bronchitis, inconvenienced, by what was happening, and a little deflated.  It wasn’t the ending she’d hoped for.

When we really commit to our spiritual unfolding, it’s important to realize there will be peaks and valleys, highs and lows, summer and winter. These will show up in our emotional landscape. We may feel a little crazy and confused, as our mind integrates new perceptions, and the body will go through many changes. Many times, as our patterns are transformed, as our vibrations rise, we may need to boldly step into a fire, which may be painful, and walk through it to gain a new perception, a higher level of wakefulness.  The work is to show up where the rubber meets the road, so to speak, remaining vigilant and awake to practice a new way of being.

The process of awakening is amazing and filled with much wonder, as we learn to see/perceive/live, like we’ve never seen/perceived/lived before. We remember what we’ve long forgotten ~

 that we are each sparks of the Divine Love, waiting to be fully embodied. The connection with all of Life, the expansion of Love, and the deep well of Compassion we access, is without words to describe.  This is Our Truth.

And, the other side of the coin, is that we must also face the abyss of the Unknown, disconnection from identifications that previously allowed life and ourselves to make sense to our human-ness. There is an unearthing of pain, sadness, and fear, which must be released and transformed with the consciousness of waking.

When this stage of our spiritual journey is experienced for the first time it can certainly feel as if we’ve taken a wrong turn somewhere along the line! I remember after the bliss of the first 4 months of my Kundalini awakening, I became very unsettled ~ at least in the mind.

For months I’d been in a state of disintegration of the self, as I’d known myself to be. Literally, I felt empty, like a void inside, yet so clear and full at the same time. The previous ways in which my personality functioned felt washed away. I wasn’t experiencing any ‘buttons’ being pushed, even though there was plenty of button pushing happening. I didn’t need to process, discuss, or solve any issues. Silence, being present and acting from a place of being in the moment, allowed life to unfold perfectly. Judgments had escaped me and I felt deeply connected with Source. I thought I was free!

And then, it turned south, or so I thought. Around that 4 month time, the body felt at peace, empty, calm, and grounded. But my mind from nowhere, began thinking again. It was as if a switch was flipped off from being the witness/observer state of consciousness, of simply being present.  Instead, the mind’s thought was perceiving the state of intense detachment, and there was reaction. And that reaction was disturbed. I had been resting in the hightened state of witness consciousness, and next, I was entering back into the more person-hood, identified, ego consciousness.  Instead of experiencing the peace, calm, empty of the body, as I had prior, I felt greatly detached and numb to all emotion, within the mind.

This alarmed the mind, while the body remained silent and empty. Without the senses of emotion, I couldn’t access the feeling of love for my partner or family. I didn’t feel connected to myself. I felt void of personality. To top it off, the fact that I couldn’t even feel the sense of alarm in my body, that I felt in my mind, alarmed my mind even more!

This phase passed. As I traversed over the years, I recognized that at different phases of our awakening, there are a great many shifts that take place energetically, physically, and of course, this affects our consciousness.  Consciousness is the key. New states of consciousness will create a new experience in how we relate to everything. But I don’t want to digress into that long subject.

The point is, that we are growing, expanding, awakening, ascending. So many words to describe what has to be experiential, to truly understand. It’s important that we have these conversations, because this will ward off unneeded fear or disappointment. Everyone’s spiritual path is unique, and yet, there are similarities at different junctures along the way.

I didn’t take a wrong turn & head south. The client, I shared about above or the others, also didn’t take wrong turns. All of us traversing this path will realize this, if we just keep moving forward, opening our heart to love and the Divine, and keep the fire of courage burning that a spiritual warrior needs to continue their journey.

We are blessed to be living in this time of accelerated spiritual unfolding! It’s amazing. It’s daunting. It’s a path of embodiment, and this is what has been largely overlooked in spiritual teachings in the general public. So hang on, but not too tightly. The ride is filled with more ease & grace, the less we cling.  If you feel you’ve turned south, know you will soon turn north again.We’re all in this together, so you’re invited to keep rising, keep diving, keep shining.

 

Blessings on your ups & downs ~ Lotus

Only You

You can’t access a higher vibration
Until you rise to meet it.

You can’t taste transformation
Until you’re ready to greet it.

There’s a process, there’s time,
we travel, in our own way.

But we all go through it . . .
Awaken, a little more each day.

This is a time of co-creation. We choose to create with the Divine Truth or with the illusory world. What are you creating in your awakening experience?

Some of us look around and get looped into the fear programs, the density holdings of a paradigm that is crumbling. The invitation is to reflect within yourself.

Where do you get hooked into those parts of yourself that are anxious, depressed, in doubt, in fear?

Do you feel trapped in feeling that you are powerless in a world  gone mad?

We each are responsible for our own process. The shadows that seem looming outside of us, are also within, awaiting your attention and healing.

Do you see blame & judgment in the world?

Heal the blame & judgment within you.

Do you see anger & fear in the world?

Heal the anger & fear within you. 

Do you feel that humanity has lost its integrity?

Heal the loss of integrity within you. 

Our inner consciousness has the power to transform the collective consciousness. Don’t get distracted by the games that pit us and divide us from one another. Pull your attention inward.

Feel into your own heart ~ Honestly. Courageously. Humbly. 

If you don’t know how to do this inner journey, seek out those who can guide you safely and compassionately. If you have forgotten your Wholeness & Wholiness, you have a choice whether or not, to retrieve it. It is a matter of choice and action.  You hold this power.

Only you hold the key to rise up to meet your own Light! 

 

Blessings on your Awakening Journey!

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.
