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 ~

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!

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!

Guidance from the Light ~Sustain Changes in Self

Hello Sisters & Brothers ~

We must start by asking, how much time have you been spending out with your Mother Nature? We will again stress the importance of this, to create the best circumstances for gathering & integrating the light codes.

As the forceful shifts are still in flux, please stay present in each moment as to what is truly relevant. For those of you who are choosing to speak to others about the occurrences, it is best for everyone to understand the need to support and care for themselves as greater frequencies enter into your world and beings.

A key message is to note that forward movement requires you NOT to return to where you have previously been in your functioning, a week ago, or even 3 days ago. What we mean by this, is that even small acts of change or the slightest insights illuminated, can fade back into the shadows, without the force of the planetary influences which brought awareness, behaviors, etc, to light, which may have been uncomfortable.

The new levels of awareness and knowing, of the beings you’re becoming must be accessed continually with conscious effort until the new codes are sufficiently integrated and anchored.

Rest is needed, even though your energy returns. If your body isn’t being called into many periods of sleep, you must continue to take times of quiet and stillness. It is when you have become quiet that we can make our presence known to those opening your hearts to our growing presence.

As you move forward, know we appreciate what all of you are doing, that you are becoming your True Selves, as you move through the stages of ushering in a new way of being and existing. The celebrations of Love are rising within so many of your groups and this is helpful to all, whether they realizing what is unfolding or not.

We offer you Thanks.

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 ~

Guidance from the Light ~ Sacred & Divine

The Earth is the Mother, as she creates all. Her ascension is another level of creating a higher life frequency. This takes place in all forms of life, both higher and lower forms continue to evolve.The Mother is revered, for she gives us a home to rise into a higher life.

Ways of understanding this move from the physical through subtle layers.

Ultimately, all of humanity becomes not only the creative path as higher light frequencies are embodied within you (humanity), but the mind of the sacred/divine masculine, the mental principle is expanded and therefore uplifted by Her force, the sacred/divine feminine principle.

What is the difference between the sacred and divine?

The Sacred . . .  The sacred encompasses all in this world, as it has been created by a high intelligent force. There are forces which create chaos and if that creates more light and deeper understanding in turn, it too is sacred.

However, the origin in some cases has been tainted, but in its redemption, if it is redeemed, it is made sacred. The redemption happens through illuminating the consciousness from the darker, dense, harder forms of ignorance.

The sacred in connection to the world, the physical plane, the body, 3-D/4-D . . . As it fills with higher frequencies of 5-D, love and light, these forces are the illuminations of the Divine.

The Divine . . .  The divine is expanded from its meaning in the context limited to religious connotations, to qualities which support and raise up all of life. These qualities include Love, Peace, Generosity, Compassion, Wisdom, Faith, Trust, Divine Truth.

We cannot rise in this divinity without creating sanctity as a foundation to hold the divine.

All of this upliftment happens through the Heart of the Feminine principle. The Masculine mind must meet the Illuminated Hear. This is the work. First it recognizes what is sacred, and then it is uplifted into its Divinity.

Thank you for asking & receiving.

I See You

This was written a couple of years ago. A lovely friend had posted something that reminded me of this piece, so I thought it was the perfect time to rekindle this flame of seeing and being seen.

Loves . . .

I see you.

I see your beauty & radiance shine even in the dark.

I see your strength through your vulnerability.

I see your creative power as you make your way through the maze of this world.

I see you as your Spirit soars high & your Soul dives deep.

I see your love mend the hearts & Souls of those whose paths you cross.

I see you in your swirling of chaos & your spacious abode of peace.

I see you.

 

I See You, through eyes of Love and therefore see myself ~

Lotus

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 ~
