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.

Your Most Potent Super-Power

I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of super-hero movies . . . many of them, anyway.

My husband turned me onto The X-Men when we first started dating. Prior to that, I had no interest what so ever in the comic book world. When we finally watched The X-Men, I acquiesced because a) it was something that he really wanted to share with me. b) he’d been such a wonderful sport about watching some of my movie choices which drained him emotionally. c) I put it off as long as I could.

From the very introduction, I was hooked. I felt semblances of relating through my personal process of  Kundalini awakening. While stories of Indigo children danced through my head, I could feel that inner knowing of a future of awakened, latent abilities not too far ahead. After all, the Yogi’s of India spoke of these powers, as well as Jesus.

While some call these super-natural powers miracles or magic, I believe these abilities lie within all of us, quite naturally. However, to truly awaken, harness, and express them, requires mastery.  But this writing isn’t really about super hero’s and the fighting of villains. It’s about the most powerful Super-Power, that opens the door to our greatest inner Power. Self-Love.

Yes. Self-Love. I’m proposing that Self-Love is our most potent form of power and perhaps one of the most challenging for us to master. But but in my experience, just in the beginning stages.

We have the hero within us and we have the villain within us. It is this inner villain that we must befriend. Who is this villain aspect? Our Sacred Shadow. The Shadow has become quite popular in the last couple of years. Thank Goodness! Because this shadowy villain leads us to love.

We live with many aspects, expressions of our wholeness. What I’ve called my inner uglies are those personality traits in myself which I’m not a big fan of. In some instances I’ve been quite ashamed of, disliked, and harbored harsh judgments about these ‘villain’ aspects of myself. This isn’t something any of us are alone in. It’s a part of how we learn and grow, by transforming aspects of ourselves that we deem as ‘wrong’ or ‘bad.’

When I first begin working with clients and the conversation turns toward the Sacred Shadow, one of the first things that comes up for many, is how can this be Sacred? ‘How can these parts of myself that cause me such shame or grief be called sacred.’ And this is where the access point of self-love begins. As human beings, this learning is a path that leads us to know that in Truth, we are worthy, we are good, we are Love. If we don’t know our Shadow, we can’t deeply Know our Light.

Falling into self-love you fall into the core of your being, rooting you to your inner truth.

Through self-love you are lifted into your highest purpose and light.

It escorts you with peace through times of challenge.

It holds you tenderly when your heart breaks.

Fall into this love as it guides your choices as nourishment and nurturance.

Living in love with your own being, you receive love more deeply, and can share it more abundantly.

I believe that while there are many helpful teachings for us all to choose from, a big disservice is done when we attach to the idea that we can skip this step of integrating the Sacred Shadow in our spiritual evolution.  I’m not advocating that we hang out and wallow in our darkness or depression. However, I also don’t believe that we can ‘think good thoughts’ our way to wholeness, maturity, and deep wisdom. Many feel that the Law of Attraction is a one dimensional process that centers only around the thinking, egoic mind. The vibrations & frequencies we attract with go much deeper than the logical, rational mind and into our subconscious, our body, and energy field. When we only hang onto the surface, sadly this leaves many people clinging, hoping, for change without taking the empowered actions to create those changes ~ on the inside FIRST.

The initiation upon the path of Self-Love requires willingness and commitment to look at ones whole self. This is why we have teachers and guides, to help us go where it is difficult to go alone. A simple formula I use is composed of 3 parts:

Acknowledge. Release. Receive.

We must first look within and acknowledge these shadow aspects. This begins to heal them. In the healing and releasing phase of the process, sacredness is born in our awareness. This also begins to create a relationship of receiving our self, which expresses as self-acceptance within our being, rather than self-rejection.

Self-Acceptance flourishes into the receptivity of Self-Love.

They go hand in hand.

Once we hit the new thresholds of Self-Love, we are ready to begin to step into our Super-Power training! Jesus is told to have hung out with those people who were seen as the dregs of society. They were looked down upon for their wrong-doings, their shady ways, their tarnished reputations.

But Jesus had the most important super-power. Because he KNEW himself to be made of Light and Love, this truth of his KNOWING, gave him the clear seeing that EVERYONE is also made of Light & Love. There are no dregs. There are only those who haven’t integrated the Sacred Shadow.

This is how the super-power begins to manifest within our being. When we love ourselves, when we live from a state of wholeness, everyone we meet is a reflection of that Truth, regardless how far they are shrouded in forgetfulness.

Love is the greatest power we have. We are Whole and Wholy. And it is a well-spring within us, awaiting its cultivation to bloom forth and touch the hearts of all that we meet. This is the medicine of today. Turn your attention within and walk this inner path of the Heart, for your super-power of Love awaits!

Blessings of Remembering the Truth of Love Within You ~

Return Home

This is as much for me today, as I hope it brings some comfort to any of you who have found yourselves a bit off center. It was received at another time, yet now in revisiting I feel held once again and the returning to my Sacred Center is under way. Permission given.

Dearest Ones,

Do not fret.
Yes, it is so easy to forget, your Knowing, your Light.
With the inundation & indoctrination of this world,
encouraging the return to sleep;
time, energy deprivation, & robotic action.
Integration is not a time of clarity of thought or precision of direction.

It is absolutely as it should be,
confusion & fog,
while new knowing & being takes root.
Do not be afraid, nor run away.

Listen to your deep rhythms.
Let go of planning & doing.
Make space for receiving the unknown.
Float in my gentle waves, stirring new paths of travel.

Your knowing will return,
with perceptions more grand,
as forward movement doesn’t run a straight & narrow course,
but spirals & curls as it grows.

With Comforting Love ~

She Is . . . You

Where does the Goddess live?
How do we experience Her presence?

She is within each of us . . .
The Life Force, the breath flowing through our body, healing, cleansing, & strengthening, the earth of our Sacred Vessel, just as the river of blood pumping through this body. . .   She is.

The soulsong guidance which calls from our depths, through yearning or chaos  . . .
She is.

Be aware not to misjudge a goddess, one aspect of Her expression over another, one as good or bad, simply by Her Light or Dark attributes. Ma shapeshifts from the head-cleaving Kali, destroying our ignorance; to the murky, void and death of the Crone, Dhumavati. It is through their transformative Grace, that we can then experience the spaciousness of Love through Bhuvanishwari and our inner radiant beauty that is Sundari.

The destroyer of the roots of habit, of our inner darkness, She is the fire that burns & severs these tendencies of ignorance, all the while holding us tenderly in Her embrace. . .

She is.

The welling of of Joy, Bliss, Ecstasy, Grace, and Devotion, illuminates Her presence . . .
She is.

She is me, She is you.

We are Her experience when we tune into Her divine Presence.

To dive into Her grace, explore the Art of Sacred Embodiment.

With Love ~

Sacred Designs, We Are

Do you feel the stirring, whispering for you to begin?
Dancing in our circle, each hand gesturing with grace & beauty,
seemingly choreographed, yet not.
We each are vehicles, empty, yet filled, surrendering to the divine flow within us.
We are danced from the Mysteries of Life.
We are the Divine Feminine, drawing down the Sacred Designs of Love & Healing into this world.

 

Few things are more beautiful to me than when you or myself, courageously, willingly, enters into our rawness, our darkness or pain, and returns clearer, radiant & Light.

In this return we bring with us a new freedom, higher love, & deeper wisdom. We are the spiritual warrioresses/warriors. It is this requirement to dig deep, spread the salve that heals the wound & suffering.

This work is one of the most important paths we can embark on today. It brings healing to ourselves, one another, and this planet.
Though we may be in our holy spaces, tucked away in the shadows, in the lush forests, the dark caves, out of sight of watchful eyes, or communing with other beautiful souls, our strength through Love unites.

Our radiance illuminates as we join in spirit to rise, in service to the awakening of Love. Deep Bow, as we walk and in hand, embodying the Sacred Designs of Her Love!

Face & Embrace Your Sacred Self

Lovelies . . .

Do you long for the path of Self-Love & Embracing the Sacred within?
And yet, do you attempt to divide your inner light & darkness?

Self-rejection takes shape when we judge our self as wrong, bad, not-enough, faulty, etc. When we push it further within or away, when we pretend this aspect of our self doesn’t exist, we simply delay our wholeness & authenticity.

It’s ok. Feel your ‘darkness’ rise forth & give it breath & voice.
Take it gently in your heart. See it for what it is . . .

It is a wound coming forth to be revealed & healed, through your love & presence.       

It is a Sacred Shadow, ready to be transformed, transmuted & integrated, with conscious compassion.

This is the path of becoming Whole & Holy. This is the path of the Sacred Feminine.

This is the path to your Truth. And you don’t need to walk it alone.

We all have layers of the past which shroud us in false-hoods, which still convince us of false truths, in our today. We are empowered when we not only recognize them consciously, but clear the energies which often can linger through our physical form and subtle bodies.

This is why I do what I do, why I’ve been called to this work. I’ve had to walk through my own darkness, and occasionally still do. But with the tools & practices that I’ve gained over the years, the process happens with more ease and grace, than years past. I’m thankful for those who supported & guided me into my radiance . . . and now I’m here to support you!

For assistance to un-wind the tendrils which hold you back  . . . lets set up a consultation and see how to set you free with special introductory rates.

With Love ~

Be Guided by the Subtle

It is important to understand the subtleties at play as part of our human existence. The more sensitized we become to those subtleties, the higher degree our ability to be guided, to be in our wholeness~wholyness and fullness as spiritual beings on this planet. Listen for a day, to the impulses of the body & heart:

Leaving her mind still resting on the pillow,
her body spoke, she followed.

It told her what to eat, when to rest, how to share.

Upon retirement she found her whole day had been a graceful
dance of the present.

There is indeed a very real power, an omnipresent consciousness, assisting us in our evolution & rising into Truth & Love.

How do you access this knowing?
Sitting silently, held by Mother Nature?
Staring into the innocent eyes of a child or other creature?
The experience of Grace as you are lifted above life’s swirls?
Find your access point & return, again & again & again.

This material world directs us to know through the intellect.
For many, what can’t be seen, touched, proven by science is doubted and discarded to our detriment.There is a neglect of those things that can’t be put into words.

But the mystics, the saints, the artists, the poets all shine light on another way of knowing & being in this world. They link us to other worlds, other realms, within the one we live.
They create & teach from the language beneath the mind.
In a growing number, we are accessing that ability to know from our depths, from intuition, to feel the truths that are received from the body & heart.
The body & heart are deeply connected to our messages of Soul.
These messages are our soulsongs! When we tap this place within, guidance flows & deeper knowing grows!

From the subtle, we become aware that we are Whole & Wholy, right here, right now.

For assistance in accessing and maintaining  your deep knowing and your expanding Light, I invite you contact me. to explore how I can best be of service. 

With Love,

Lotus 

Shakti Kundalini ~ a Pathway to Sacred Embodiment

Recently I’ve embarked on the presently very popular 30 Day Video Challenge. I’m currently on day 16. Some days I feel challenged. Challenged to ‘be in the mood’, challenged by the on-going nemesis relationship I have with technology, challenged by revealing myself. The up-side of this challenge isn’t exactly what I’d anticipated though. While I love writing, I’m finding there is a whole level of ease and communication I’m finding through video. The surprise is that I’m actually opening up in ways I hadn’t expected . . . and finding a new aspect of myself.

As I’ve mentioned previously, for over the last decade I’ve practiced and guided many individuals through their Kundalini awakening process, via the path of my teacher, Yogi Desai. Trying to explain this path to those who haven’t traveled it, is extremely difficult. Even after one steps into this inner journey, it remains full of surprises with few words to describe it, as it’s totally unique to each traveler. One simply (or sometimes not so simply) embodies the awareness and wisdom received.

I’ve had the gift, the go-ahead, the courage to finally share this most intimate (to me) and sacred expression of yoga because of the 30 day challenge. If you feel so called, you can view it here.

For me, as I mention in the video, this practice is the foundation of all I teach and live. The divine energy which is innate within each of us, is the key to our spiritual unfolding and expansion of consciousness. Ma Shakti Kundalini, Divine Mother, the Holy Spirit, the Shekinah, whatever name we choose to call Her, is our ultimate inner wisdom and teacher. She is the Sacred Fire of Baptism, the access of Speaking in Tongues/Languages of Light, the Creatrix of all that lives, breathes, grows.

On the one hand, it has often saddened me that more don’t know of this path or choose it, as it brings us up close and deeply connected to the essence of who we are.  On the other hand, I completely understand that we each are compelled, propelled by Soul’s deep yearning to return home when the timing is right, and along the path that is true for each individual.

This path has been largely kept under wraps as it’s not always the easiest, nor has the timeline been appropriate for all that is revealed when we are guided into our depths of being. However, just as everything is evolving rapidly and making a giant leap of faith, we are also witnessing the collective presence of Ma Kundalini within the Ascension process. At least this is my perspective. And the time is now ripe and rich for Her presence to be more fully embraced.

For those of us who have created a deep relationship with Her ways,

have followed Her teachings as they weave, spiral, and redesign our beings, from the inside-out,

it’s clear that just as She has cleared us from our depths of darkness,

She is now delivering us into higher dimensions of Love & Light.

Many of us have danced with Her aspects of the Goddess. My beloved primary energies have been the transformational fires of Kali Ma and Chhinnamasta, as well as the expanding Love and Spaciousness of Bhuvaniswari. Yes, they are archetypes, thought to be a part of our imagination or a way to describe energetic actions/shifts in consciousness. They are also very real forces of the Divine, which help to illuminate us. And they are accessed through Her awakening of Love, spilling over into our hearts.

When we are learning directly from Ma, we no longer need to be shown from an external source, such as a book, the correct Mudra our hands should posture . . .

She guides our hands into the right and true medicine needed for us, guided by Her divine wisdom, Her true essence which is our Deepest Self.

Mantra will sing forth with Her voice, once again, as the needed sacred tone, resonance, sounding, just for us.

Yantra will appear in the minds-eye, to imbue us with divine light and higher frequency.

Devotional Service acts through us selflessly.

These are Her blessings through our body, as it is guided effortlessly, spontaneously, through Her Embodied Presence: to heal, align, restore, balance, clear & cleanse, in order for us to evolve into our Highest Self of Love and Light. 

She is now assisting this planet. She is directly related to all the forces of Love and Light, here on Gaia and in the Cosmos. She has been my greatest gift and blessing, and She is who works through me to bring healing, Light and Love to others.

Kundalini Ma, the Divine Mother, will always remain the Mystery of Mysteries, and yet we each can know Her and be guided by Her if we are called to live in Love. Our intellect will never ‘hold’ Her, but our Heart and Soul will live Her wisdom.

She is your still small voice and your protective roar.

She is the visions that awaken you and the epiphanies of divine insight.

She is your creative inspiration and that which calls you into deep contemplation.

She is the Life Force that formed you and will heal you.

She is always within, awaiting your hand to take hers.

I could wax poetic endlessly, yet the true invitation is for each person, is to touch the Space of Grace within themselves, singing your own songs, so She may rise through you, lifting your heart into the heavens.

The Art of Sacred Embodiment Program is for those dedicated to connecting to their Highest-Divine-Self through the path of the Divine Mother, Kundalini Shakti. My heart invitation extends to those who feel called, to contact me and we’ll explore if this is the right fit for you.

For all of us, I’m happy to be walking with you, in these times of heightening Love.

Keep following your heart, your joy, your passion, your purpose, your Highest Self!

Guidance from the Light ~ Faith & Trust

This was received in March. 

Greetings ~

We wish to speak of the shift occurring on the New Earth Rising. The old is passing and there is a rebuilding of a state of Love.

Love is the prominent force taking place. Don’t be worried and distracted by the great upheaval as the density is moved out.

Love will be vibrating at higher rates through the natural world of Mother Earth. These frequencies will be able to gain momentum from that starting point. We encourage you all to be in nature as much as possible. Spending time in the nature will assist the frequencies to rise in you and others.

There is much energy that is dense, scattered and unclear, streaming through your world. This is difficult to tame. So we must expand the points of coherence and intelligence, from Mother Nature’s coherence and intelligence.

What you need to understand about survival and fear is that they are dying away as well. They do not have a function in the New Earth where we are all entering. Some of you may wonder how some of your needs will be met if you stop functioning from survival and fear based emotions and motivations.

Our answer is this: There must be Faith and Trust, learned from the experience, of taking necessary steps. Only by the experience of walking and living through this shift, will you know Faith and Trust in the new ways.

Survival clinging is a frightening thing to release, but therein lies your freedom!

The New Earth frequencies naturally support Love, Coherence, Faith & Trust.

Thank You for allowing us to share.

7th Council of Light from the New Earth Rising

Space for Grace

I’m always in wonder, amazement, and awe in the spiritual unfoldings, of myself and others. We travel far and wide seeking beautiful vistas, new sites, adventures, and thrills. That is indeed a part of choosing this earthly life. There are many jewels to be found and not overlooked or taken for granted.

And yet, I’m also a cheerleader for the lesser known by many, of the inner journeys. What lies within us, when we take the time to explore the inner worlds, for me are the wildest of rides! I’m always in gratitude for what is revealed and healed. And in that, the space for grace, blooms forth more love and presence, to shared with you, and you, and you.

Forgiveness finds me. I find forgiveness.
Resting in reflection, the tendrils extending years and lives into the past begin to uncoil, releasing their grasp.

I’m flooded with hues of pink, expanding in the minds eye and swirling through my beings. Compassion comes to abide.

No need for the reasons, the rational, the stories, which previously inhibited the state of forgiveness from settling in. Challenges or effort, rights or wrongs, only continue the story telling.

Instead forgiveness enters in, just because. I am enveloped by the spaciousness of Love. It is now mine to share.

Love & Blessings ~
