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¬†ūüôā¬†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 ~

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:

Beloved’s Embrace: Embodying your Divine Self

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!

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!

In Light & Love ~

Be the Vessel

To function from Presence in the world, in the day to day, there must be a vessel for Presence to be surfaced from.

Relaxed. Breath. Peace-filled. Body-centered. Heart-centered.

Surrendered and swimming in Inner Sensations.

Inspired thoughts from the spaciousness of Being, rather than doing. 

Invite proper rest, nature, prayer,  distraction release. 

It’s a Mind lift. ¬†Lifestyle gift. ¬†Paradigm shift.¬†

Presence introduces you to itself, oneSelf, when we’re in the flow of our true glow.

You are the vessel for divine Presence.

Welcome to the New World Rising!

Guidance from the Light ~ Highest Self Alignment

Greetings Lovelies! I wanted to share this which has come in recently. We are being urged to continue to move at rapid paces. Always know, we are held, loved & supported.

The Soul, the Highest Self, knows what is needed.

Stay out of the way of your personality. Allow personality/personhood to follow the alignment, ¬†which will in turn allow ‘you’ to deepen. Your highest aspects will guide you accordingly.

Empty of the restrictions in the heart, open to Love and Light and Trust. In the midst, know that you are not helpless, even if at times it feels this way. You are not being dis-empowered. You are not helpless. You are allowing yourself to be helped by your higher aspects and those of us able to oversee and guide you from a higher perspective.

Do not assume that you know the full knowing of your purpose, or that your purpose at this now time will be the same at another. The element of feeling will guide you to your call as it evolves. But this also means that you mustn’t be attached to what your feeling experience is now. It will change. Don’t let personality become attached or fixed, ¬†so that Soul can continue to evolve. Things are changing rapidly, therefore what you perceive as your call must be allowed to change as needed.

See that your call is manifesting NOW. Do not wait until something feels solidified, if you are feeling a call forward. Be in action, from the inner guidance, as the shifts take place in each moment. You are creating NOW. Follow the guidance of your Highest Self.

Allow your perceptions to stretch, expand and become elastic.

Thank you & our assistance is always present.

7th Council of Light of the New Earth Rising

The Time is Now

As awakening increases upon our Earth, integration is at hand of our own Highest Self, our own Divine Self. You may already be receiving glimpses of this Presence that peaks through your eyes, gently moves your body~seemly of its own accord, speaks through your mouth, loves enormously and unconditionally through your heart, seeks out compassion and connection, where there was once judgement and division.

This is what I’m hearing from clients I’m working with and these have been my experiences over the years.

This isn’t just our imagination, although, it does require the openness of the mind to imagine this divine potential humanity is being embraced by. What I’ve learned is that while Grace does indeed introduce us to our divine presence, just as Grace introduces us to other divine beings whom are assisting us, we are needed to do our part. We are co-creators with the divine, with our Highest Self. This co-creation requires actions from us in order to become receptive to the subtle energies of our own radiance; in order to know the Truth about who we really are.

We can assist ourselves by actively seeking to heal past woundings and beliefs/stories which keep up locked in the denser energies of our being. For each Sacred Shadow we befriend within us, more light is available. For each instance of blame or shame that we genuinely release, we enter into our own Wholeness. For each new seed we plant of deep love and respect for ourselves, the more Love will emanate from us to touch and uplift another.

Our Souls are compelling us more adamantly to heal, release, and receive. This is the time. Just in the last month I’ve had 3 clients who have used the same word ~ urgency. They have each been new clients and what has brought them to me is an urgency to dive deeper, to shift something within them, to let go of what no longer is serving them. We are knowing on a deeper level that we are going to have to enter into areas where perhaps we’ve feared to tread in the past. Or maybe life seemed to offer us a contentment and there wasn’t a need felt to explore deeper, until now. Whatever the case may be, I see this is changing!

Our inner warrior/warrioress is stirring, carrying us with a new sense of adventure and courage to let go of the distractions and preoccupations of the outer realm. As we move toward our inner-self, we see it’s not as frightening within as we thought. And as we move forward, the forces of Love & Light are meeting us to soften and accelerate the journey.

There is a new (it’s always been there, but we’re now ready to hear)¬†inner knowing that in order to create an outer world which is harmonious, celebratory, infused with Spirit, and of service to ourselves AND one another, we’re going to have to begin within.

We each are vehicles for the Divine . . . it can be no other way.

It is the Source from which we’re born.

The questions are: 

Are you aware of your divinity?

How open are you to that sacred force?

Are you ready to take the actions which connect you to your Divine Self?

Do you return into your own quietude often enough, deep enough, to recognize the radiance you see within, as you?

I’m so honored to be a part of the awakening of Love on this planet and to be a part of this journey with all of you who I walk with. When we say ‘YES!’ to our highest call, that call to awaken, Life truly begins. If you feel the call, assistance is here.¬†

Blessings on Your Inner Adventure!

Language of Soul & Light Transmission

I’m sharing a new Light Language, ancient soul language transmission to support the intense energies at this time. We’re being asked to say “YES!” to our highest aspects, release that which doesn’t support our expressions of Love, Light, Purpose.

You can receive it here on Youtube: Light Language Activation

The Languages of Light, are our Soul’s language, or as I’ve coined for much of my work before I was aware what they were, our SoulSong. They support the rising of all of us into our highest aspects, our Highest Self/Divine Self. They assist in clearing old aspects of personality which no longer align with the frequencies of our deepest purpose & highest potential.

The sounds/codes/languages/frequencies of Light are deeply connected to us & others. They are already a part of our divine make-up, our blueprint. We each have an ancient soul language, a language of our highest heart. We each receive exactly what our being needs from each transmission.

God is a frequency within you.

Tune in to the Love.

These transmissions speak to that part of you, your deepest & highest Self, supporting the release of that which keeps you separated from the unity of Love, Light, Joy, Peace, within & without!

For deeper, personal Light Language Healing, you are invited to learn more here.  This is available both in my studio or via Skype.

Love & Blessings ~

Lotus

You Are Loved

We are loved.

For all the ways you feel like you’re failing,
you are actually succeeding and evolving.

For all the ways you feel shame or embarrassed,
you are coming into the radiance of our fullness.

For all the ways you feel you’ve disappointed or let others down,
you are being lifted up.

You are Loved

It is when we can see and feel these truths of learning, the false sense of our smallness will be eradicated and our fullness will shine!

We are learning to Love ourselves, as we are Loved.
Love to you.

The Path of Surrender pt 1 ~Healing the imbalance

The Path of Surrender is an art of divine simplicity . . . And, one of the most difficult on-going tasks asked of us. This can be a challenging subject to understand with the intellect and at least equally as challenging to learn to live as a way of life, if you haven’t yet tasted her elixer. ¬†And yet, so much that we seek comes from a place of surrender. Freedom. Love. Peace. Self-Acceptance. Self-Love. Well-being. Generosity. Connection. This doesn’t mean surrender works alone or that we become pacifistic in all of our life. It actually requires great discipline, but a different sort of discipline! It is most often the final act of aligning and manifesting what our heart and soul truly long for. Well worth the initial challenges, yes?

So, before we can really dive into Surrender, it’s also important that we get to know Will.¬† In this first part of our exploration, let’s dive into the basic concept of Surrender from,

  1. the intellect
  2. the qualities of our world as seen through the prisms of masculine & feminine energies
  3. the old world paradigm and the new world we’re entering into.

For thousands of years, we’ve been living in a paradigm of predominantly masculine energies. This is governed by the mind, intellect, conceptualizing. It fosters the activities of striving toward goals. It’s understood linearly, from point A to point B. The mind needs to know, to be able to explain things logically, to be able to prove, and functions with black & white thinking.

There are many ways this functioning is necessary to navigate the material world in which we live. ¬†This left brain ¬†ensures we know how to balance our check books, bank accounts & budgets. It helps up to plan trips, with itineraries. If you’re planning an event, it makes sure you can manage the logistics. In the medical field, for instance, science makes strides by what it is able to prove. While we need this functioning, obviously, it has also overstepped many of its bounds. And it’s being in charge of our lives, has had a hay-day that is winding down and will be sharing space, more equally, ¬†with the feminine.

The force through which our masculine or yang energies work, is through our Will. ¬†With focus, attention, intention, we exert our will onto the outer world. This is represented by the right side of our body, also by the element of the sun and heat. A great way of exploring this is by practicing a simple exercise. ¬†Make a fist & squeeze. Notice to what degree you’re squeezing your hand into the fist. How much pressure are you exerting? How long can you sustain that level of exertion with ease? How does it feel as you hold the tension?

This is an example of how we go through a good portion of our lives. ¬†If we exert too much will, we find ourselves exhausted easily. Stress and tension build up in the body, mind, or emotions. ¬†If we don’t exert any will, we can barely clench the fist or at best it’s a limp clench. This can reflect in our lives as lethargy or stagnation. When we use our attention with consciousness, clench a fist with a medium amount of pressure, this can be sustained comfortably. When the fist tires, we let go. Release. Surrender.

Will & Surrender are a mated couple. They dance together, they embrace in lovemaking, they give and receive, contract and release, from their mutual love, devotion, respect. While the masculine moves us out into the world in action, the feminine returns us home within to integrate, deepen, cultivate wisdom. They go hand in hand. They are our inner Sacred Masculine & Sacred Feminine, which when equally honored & balanced, create harmony.

Yet, we are most familiar with the quality of egoic Will. An expression of the masculine, who has lost his divinity, so to speak, because he has ruled over, subjugated, and usurped the Sacred Feminine qualities. Hence we witness violence at every turn, both in the news and as ‘entertainment.’ We compete with one another continuously and ourselves, in the work place, in sports, in fun and games. ¬†The ongoing desire for bigger, better, more has sold us a false belief in scarcity. We have stress as the leading underlying cause of the numerous health crisis’s. We’ve rationalized the acceptance that we need to triumph over nature with our man-made devices to exert control in a myriad of ways, and Mother Earth is continually being assaulted in numerous ways, negating the very real fact that we need Her for our survival.

Control is one of the most abused actions of an out-of-whack masculine force. Control of people. Control of animals. Control of information. Control of freedom. Control of money.¬† One of the most devastating & horrific forms of abuse of control can be seen in human trafficking, which has become one of the most lucrative forms of business over the last decade and yet, it’s still flying under the radar of the general public.¬†We see all of the above ‘controls’ playing our loudly on our world stage.

Our minds are on overdrive with insomnia now effecting large portions of the population. Whether this is from the constant use of technology, seeking entertainment, relief, or the never-ending stream of distractions, it is a symptom of a  society that is highly over stimulated. The ramp of the Sympathetic Nervous System (active/masculine state) has diminished our ability to be nourished by the Para-Sympathetic Nervous System (receptive/feminine state).

Many mornings on my daily walks, I witness a large proportion of fellow walkers/runners listening to their ear-bugs, as they are spending time in nature. I understand the desire to listen to music, pod-casts, lectures, etc. and we are fortunate to have these options. My comment is less about the symptom of stimulus, and more about a lack of awareness around the habit. ¬†How have we become so greatly desensitized to the subtle joys in life, such as listening to the morning songs of the birds? When did we buy into a constant frenetic way of filling our brain with constant noise, which we’re learning from experience is depleting us in so many ways, yet we find it hard to¬† change?

These are aspects of the intense imbalances at hand today.  The wonderful news is that there is a change that is rising. As most of us have heard, we are entering the time of the Divine Feminine!

It is with Her Love, Her healing salve, Her purification of heart, body, and mind, that we will find a path back to harmony.

It also means a new challenge is upon us.¬† This challenge is the willingness to approach the Art of Surrender.¬† While it’s the cool breeze at the end of a dry hot day, though we will wish for the gentle, tenderness of her caress, we also fight it. It is frightening to realize that with the release of the load we’ve carried, it will bring with it deep change. This isn’t the change that we will manage and control or even know the outcome. It’s dangerous territory to the ways in which we’ve been living, functioning, thinking, being, for longer than most of us know.

But, this time of surrender is just as much in our bones and breath, as that of the will. The scales will need to tip to the other side of where they’ve been, in order to balance out. ¬†It is She, who will soothe the heat of the masculine shadow, with divine teachings of Compassion, Truth & Love.¬† Are you ready to embark on her magical path of Surrender?

With Love,

Lotus
