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:

Are You Ready to Choose Flight?

I’ve been singing some Carol King lately, with the slight change of the lyrics . . . I feel the earth move under my feet, I feel continuous walls of attachments & resistance crumbling down. I feel the sky tumbling down . . . With every release of old beliefs, stories, personality traits, whenever Spirit’s around . . .

Little did I know I had the expectation to return to a caterpillar stage & create a new groove at the start of the year. Instead the butterfly keeps emerging rapidly.

I’ve given up on finding a new routine, which I’d hoped I’d be able to ground in once I rounded this monumental corner of transformation, which I’ve been longing for, for eons it seems. Especially at this time of quickening evolution on the planet & mind blowing revelations when witnessing our human experiences . . . New, new, new. It’s sort of like being in a carnival fun house trying to find sure footing on the ever shifting floor beneath your feet. Some moments it’s amusing, others it’s anxiety producing, and many other moments you just want the ride to stop.

Instead it’s an on-going dance of new phases & stages of becoming nothing of who I used to be. I know that many of you know this feeling right now. Awakening & awakening & awakening to ever new levels of Self, Love, dimensions, divinity & assistance from beyond the veil.

The new stability is found in the heart & in the growing direct experience, rather than that which we can touch & see. It’s a constant re-aligning of action & surrender, intent & consent to the Divine flow. This is what we signed up for. We consented to go on this earthly ride at this time, to bring in & anchor greater Light.

The more resistance to change at this time, the more challenges I find. And so, I continue to Let Go & fly!

Even as there are many of us who have been experiencing the process of awakening, as it is just that an on-going process, there are many of our brothers & sisters who this may be their maiden voyage, and what a time to begin . . . Although, awakening is the purpose of this time on this planet. This time may be wrought with much unexpected, therefore I feel it’s up to all of us to come together & share our experience, strength & hope.

Change is knocking on many hearts. If there is only an understanding of a world that is linear, rational, goal oriented, work, entertainment, & processing the duality of our present political climate, when change begins to tug at you, it may not make sense.

Many people know that their old ways aren’t working any more. They feel the stress, the exhaustion, the phantom illnesses, the rising anxiety & the debilitating depression, the yearning for something new. Some realize that they are being programmed to be distracted, and follow the distractions the next moment. Others are gaining the recognition that they are comfortably numb.

There is a growing awareness & desire for something more. Something deeper. Something more sacred. Something more fulfilling & enlivening. But there is the catch. To give life to the new will require change. Change will be uncomfortable. Period.

As soon as the heart & soul reach out to inquire for the new, the life of the creative feminine force within them, the knee-jerk reactions say:
“Oh No! I just don’t have the time.”
“Oh No! My spouse would never go for that.”
“Oh No! I couldn’t take that kind of time, that would be so selfish.”
“Oh No! I can’t afford that.”
“Oh No! But what if I fail?”

All of these rebuttals, make perfect sense. They are rational, and any logical person would say, of course, ‘Stay where & how you are, there’s too much to lose. It’s better to be safe than sorry.’
This is the paradigm we are leaving behind, whether we are ready for it or not! The growing discomfort of this time is to push us out of our comfort zones, our programmed thinking. It’s asking us to question our beliefs.
Why do you believe what you believe?
Are those beliefs yours or passed on through society?
And finally, are those beliefs serving your personal highest good, bringing you joy at the end of the day & the highest good of our world at large?

This is the time to release our stuckness in the root chakras of scarcity, survival, fear, & cultural thought forms, in order to evolve & expand into who we truly are. It is the time where we are being asked to be accountable for who we choose to be, what we choose to contribute to the world, and do we choose to be a Light in the world or a shadow.

What needs to be brought into awareness is that when we choose not to inquire into ourselves as those questions invite, that IS our programming at work. This is the part of us that chooses the status quo of what is known, what is ‘comfortably numb’ verses joyful, celebrating wholeness, stepping into our purpose. This is the part of us that clings to the belief of limitation, rather than expand into abundance, desires to remain asleep, rather than awaken, that chooses to remain trapped in the servitude of programming, rather than experience a greater freedom. This is the part of us that chooses to hand over our personal power to authorities outside of our highest conscience and forfeit our sovereignty..

Change is indeed difficult. It can be confusing. It requires us to release the stability of outworn ways and grow in a faith & trust of the greatness within our soul. Change sets the stage for our transformation, and it doesn’t play by the rational rules. It plays by the rules of faith, creativity, inspiration & intuition. It introduces us to the direct experience of higher awareness, soul connection, & being true to one’s Self. It leads us to divine connection & divine knowing, which increases our Faith & Trust that we are not alone. Choosing change gives us the strength to resist falling prey to all the lies & programming of the world.

We can choose to stay in the stuckness today, a year, or 5 years from now. We’ll most likely continue seeing through the same eyes & often times carrying a heavier load. I’ve heard people say, ‘if only I’d taken that other path when I had the chance, my life could have been so much different.’ Well, this is true, and it’s also true that the path of choosing self-empowerment, self-love will always be there. Sometimes it just gets harder to see as time goes on.

We are given choices over & over again, moments when we are on that threshold again, to honor our Self fully and say
“Yes!” It’s time for something different.
“Yes! I choose to step out of my sleep walking & awaken to the truth that is calling from inside my heart.”
“Yes! I choose to face my fears, insecurities, in order to give life to my purpose & sacred calling.”
“Yes! I choose to go through the discomfort in order to access greater happiness, joy, trust, and faith.”

We all have these choices, on-going, and that is the joy and wonder of being a spiritual-human being evolving. My inner world & outer reality will continue to morph and transform, as I choose consistent awakening. This is such a powerful time to shine & radiate the Light within you. The path before you is open and calling. I hope, if you haven’t yet found you’re path, you join the growing numbers of change makers! Come fly with us!
The choice is yours! What will you choose?

Blessings ~ Lotus

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!

 

Time Out ~ Time With-In

Time has slipped by rapidly as of late. I’ve been diving within, but feeling the first subtle ripples of readiness to re-surface. It may seem as I’ve abandoned my site, before it’s even become firmly established. The ebb-n-flow, I rock-n-roll with isn’t always one of consistency.  Just like Mother Nature, we also go through cycles of day and night, waking and sleep, active and restful. Our inner masculine and inner feminine each have necessary expressions. When honored, they dance together, creating wholeness, balance, and inner harmony.

The first half dozen times I experienced these empty states the discomfort was almost more than I could bare! I felt fearful and anxious that I would remain in the ‘blah-ness’ I was feeling, if I surrendered to it. Yet, under those ‘divine-in-training’ circumstances, as I refer to them, I was rendered powerless. Or so I thought. In truth I was introduced to a very deep and beautifully fluid power that was sourced from my heart and soul. What I was given was the opportunity to learn from the Divine Feminine energies awakening within me. With my ‘agenda’ out of commission, for example with vertigo, I was literally unable to continue with the masculine momentum I’d been functioning under. Instead, I received my first swimming lesson with and in the Feminine Presence.

We are all becoming more aware that the majority of our world has been functioning under the energy and consciousness of a masculine imbalance. The need to be active, regimented, goal oriented, schedule based, and productive in the outer world, regardless of what’s happening in our inner world, has been prominent.

I’ve met many individuals, that when met with Her inner call, which sometimes shows up as illness, listlessness, low energy, overly tired, foggy headed, lack of direction or uninspired, there is an assumption that something is ‘wrong.’  For the uninitiated there is a sense that if they give in to these body messages, if they stop, if they rest, they’ll be unproductive. This then feeds into feelings of guilt, anxiety, shame, and depression. So, they power through. This is the masculine programming.

Listen to the call of Soul. When the outer world fades in clarity, Her initiation begins.

Wade into Her waters, let Her wash over you into Being, smoothing the edges of doing.

Become an initiate on the path of your heart and soul. It is here your world transforms.

The feminine expression also has active attributes. She can bring great fire and enthusiasm to our lives. However, it will happen quite spontaneously and fluidly. While many of us are in touch with the ignition of this inner power and light, and it marries well with our masculine energy to actualize in our lives, we tend to shy away from her expressions that call us to take time out.

Stop. Rest. Simmer. Be.

This is Her Sacred Initiation.

When I enter into periods of time which call me inward, or when I find I’m simply not bubbling with inspiration, I know it’s time to step back. Over time I also have gained the faith that this too shall pass, and I will rise back up renewed and ready to step back into the world, dancing with my inner masculine. It seems this most recent quiet time, may or may not be influenced by the fact that we’ve had 5 planets in retrograde. Retrogrades are in and of itself is an inner, reflective pull. While I don’t feel as much resistance to the inner deepening and the time-out as I did in the early days, I do experience a challenge from the outer world expectations.  I can still feel susceptible to energetic attempt to pull me back out, into the world of doing.

The mass thought form of the world demands us to stay busy and keep our senses stimulated. We have appointments to set and keep, we have social engagements, and much work to be done to prove our productivity. And while there are many benefits to social media, we fill most empty time with on-line perusing.

I have found for myself, it takes a firm stand of giving myself permission to release and let go of the overtly masculine paradigm. I can’t convince you or anyone else of the power and revelations which come from the Feminine’s divine call to dive deep within oneself. We each have to come to the realization that to honor self-care and  self-nourishment are valuable choices. Especially for women, it’s necessary for our well-being. Yet, this is something we come to know only through direct experience.

Swim in the natural inner tides of your being. It is then will you gain faith that you are being fed in ways that only the inner realm can feed you.  

Listening to your own natural rhythms, connecting more deeply to your own inner wisdom, is the key to Knowing what lies within the quietude. 

I won’t try to make this sound over simple, especially for mothers and those of you who are in demanding positions in your career. But it can start with baby steps. Limit your multi-tasking activities when possible. Walk away from unnecessary computer use. Practice just sitting and enjoying each sip of your coffee or tea. Eat while gazing out the window at the trees. When that 5 or 10 minute window appears when the baby is napping, instead of ‘doing’ more, just stop and connect to your breath.

There is great gratitude I have for the path I’ve traveled and the structure (or lack there of) of my life. It has been co-created with the help from the divine. It offers me the time and space to explore these realms deeply. We all have our life purpose that gifts us  with what we can then share with others, and mine is the navigation of the inner realms of the Sacred Feminine Embodiment.  With this work, also comes many things that I have forgone, which may have made my life more secure or easy. But,there is always a trade-off and security and ease are very subjective, aren’t they?

It is imperative at this time in the earth’s history though, that we as women and those men who are ready to birth their own balance of the Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine, begin to enter into our Sacred Centers, our inner world, our deepest natural feminine rhythms and cycles. We are the ones who will be supporting this paradigm shift. We are the game changers. We, who choose to co-create a renewed, thriving and more sustainable world, will be in cahoots with Her energies.

Those of you who resonate with me, follow me or my work, will indeed find me absent at times . . . but never far away. I’m simply diving deep into the waters of the Mother.

If you feel called to join the diving and not yet sure how to let go into this new Sacred Feminine paradigm, please reach out.

Blessings on Your Deepening ~
