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 ~

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.

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:

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!
