Heeding My Own Words on My Journey…Listen, Listen, Listen!

Share

magicalbookSMDoing what I’ve volunteered to do as my life’s work is quite the incredible and magnificent journey! And yet… as magical as it is, as well beyond the day-to-day 3D, I still find I’ve had some very 3D fears, resistance, and experiences with which I’ve limited myself at some very crucial points.

One of my fortes is writing and communication; I find it easy and flowing… and I also know how to consciously incorporate the telepathic meaning/information well beyond the words I use. My calling to “write the books” about all of this – all of what I discuss, teach, experience in relation to helping others to remember the Universe in some ways very differently than we have previously – has been continuously pushing at me via Higher Consciousness for several years; I have far, far more to share than what I’ve even portrayed in many public forums!

However, I’ve procrastinated.

“Too much to do!” I would proclaim, again and again, every time it came through in meditation, or via message through others. Or, “It will be out of date as soon as it’s published!” Or innumerous other excuses! I would put time aside to write… and write something else (like a blog LOL), update my Website, make a few calls… well, you get the idea. I’ve written much of it in drawers full of journals, and… nothing yet has made it to the light of day beyond smatterings and discussion and verbal teaching.

I KNOW better; listening to guidance is what I teach as the CORE!

However, I’ve been putting off guidance, time and again… continuously on this for years. This is so funny, because I look back over it now, and laugh at myself (one the best tools for accepting ourselves).

What I continuously talk about and teach, all the time, is how when we ignore true guidance – that which comes from the Higher Self (vs. the ego) – it always starts with a little nudge – a little message, reminder, whatever you want to call it. The more we ignore those nudged, the little messages… the bigger they get. “Can you hear me now?” The Higher Self asks… and it doesn’t stop turning up the volume until the guidance/knowing is followed.

This is why we eventually manifest crises into our lives; we’ve ignored a nudge and the messages so much (typically because in some way, shape, or form the ego is uncomfortabe because of SOME resistance-based belief that it holds) that the Higher Self, the Universe, the Divine, however you want to term it, FINALLY has to kick you in the butt in a way that you CAN’T. DO. ANYTHING. ELSE.

Again, I know better.

I’ve gotten through gobs and gobs… and my experiences are truly miraculous and magical. I’ve started an amazing practice and modality around this – in accordance to HUGE guidance (see more about Trinity Energy Progression here); it never steers me wrong! All in all, I trust my guidance fully; it’s the waning ego’s moments of control that cause me to not DO something when I’m guided to do it.

And yet… here I am.

A pattern of limitation and blockades has turned up in my reality, regardless of all efforts to circumvent them. What started happening defies an explanation…. EXCEPT that I’ve finally gotten to a level of denial that I’ve been kicked in the butt! My ego… has been kicking and screaming and looking every which way but at the white elephant in the room, until now.

Enough screwing around with this, says the Higher Consciousness. Time to write, and REALLY share this Remembrance!

I had to look long and deeply at myself, and also simultaneously zoom out to the larger picture at the entire pattern. In doing that, I realized that this is ALMOST EXACTLY what happened when my guidance kept pushing me to close down my former business and do this work – my higher calling – in 2010. How could I have been so blind to it? I’m one of the most adept at seeing the messages, putting together the jigsaw puzzle! (Actually, I do already know that answer, and it’s a three-letter word: E-G-O.)

This is SO my heart; why would I deny this? Again, I had to look at whatever was left… because there really wasn’t much! And what was left was… this is the final layer; this is what’s completely inside. This is completely opening in full Truth, full vulnerability, full acceptance of me and my Remembrance. ALL of it! That’s the ONLY WAY for me to write this series of books that I’m to write, with a completely open, completely Divine heart. Put whatever excuse to it I want, this is IT.

Sounds simple, right?

So, last week I surrendered, after a number of fits and frustrations.

Whatever shifted caused me to look at this and say to myself, “WHY have I let this go so long? This is my heart…” And then I realized that the reason I did was BECAUSE this is my heart!

I’ve now blocked time to do it. Three days so far, one hour/day, 3,500 words. And, I have a LOT more time blocked to write this week… and moving forward.

I started four days ago.

I found my writing spot… at a lake near my home, quiet and a very, very nice vibration! For some reason, it all feels effortless there.

As I should have known, as soon as I started writing, I would receive such a show of support in multiple ways from the Universe and my Higher Self (in some very humorous ways, I might add).

Day 1:

The lake is about 2 miles around, and it’s rather cut off right now because there’s some extreme road construction going on right around it, so not a lot of car traffic goes in; I parked in the “far parking lot” (on the opposite side from the clubhouse/center), and made my way in. So, laptop in my backpack, off I went!

I found the PERFECT SPOT, in the shade of a bush at just the right angle at the waterside, with dragonflies dancing around me, about 1 mile from the parking lot.

It was SO EASY! (Again, more wondering on the way out as to why it had taken me so long to get to this point!)

Day 2:

On that morning, my intention was to go back to that same spot, because it was SO flowing and SO easy! As I came around the bend, there was a man in that EXACT SPOT (and I hadn’t seen anyone else until that point)… FISHING. Not only fishing, but JUST pulling up a fish as I walked up!

He was in scrubby clothing, sort of scrubby (as was I)… there was something different about him…and he looked me in the eyes, with a sparkle smiled and greeted me as I walked up. I returned the hello… however, in those first moments, I was pouting inside a little, with the thought, “REALLY? In the whole of 2 miles around the lake, this guy picked THIS EXACT SPOT from which to FISH?”

I kept going, trying to be a little bit irritated… but I felt this push to look at… something.

As I found another spot, just around the next bend, I was putting my little pillow on the ground to sit on when I GOT IT…

He was FISHING… and he’d CAUGHT A FISH. RIGHT in the spot from where I started my “official writing.”

One of the sayings I use ALL the time, repeatedly, with my students and clients is that my goal is to “teach one to fish instead of giving them the fish.” Full Divine self-empowerment! If I had a dollar for every time I’ve said it over the past five years… well, I could probably give the 1% a run for it!

SO FUNNY that this was the “support statement” from Higher Consciousness… and just on Day 2!

Day 3: 

SONY DSC

Part 1: When I first sat down, I did a meditation at the water’s edge, in the same place I sat yesterday. The Oneness was effortless; I could feel everything! After awhile, I noticed there was some odd thrumming sound that was unfamiliar to me – not to the left or right (or across the lake), but right in my vicinity. I opened my eyes, and there was a hummingbird, hovering over the water, about 2 feet in front of me and slightly to my left! It was really interested in me! We looked at each other for what seemed like 30 seconds… maybe less… but it was long enough that it was pointed that I notice the oddity of this… and then it flew away, soon to circle around and come back to the jewelweed in bloom around 6 feet from me.

There are SO MANY things about the symbolism of the hummingbird… something that occurred to me about it when we were looking eye to eye is this: Regardless of the flapping of its wings at such a tremendous speed, its head stays pretty centered and still while in flight. Pretty amazing. Staying the center of the storm – its OWN storm! There was far more…

Part 2: After I’d been writing, I packed everything back up in my backpack and was walking one way to leave, when a man who had passed by doubled back from the other direction and called to me. He asked me if I was an author; I smiled and said yes, I was writing a book. He pressed more and I realized he thought I was a published author he’d met in our area; he gave me her name (he said a book she wrote was At the Water’s Edge, which I thought was funny, given that I’d been sitting at the water’s edge when he’d first walked by). We talked for a few minutes, and he said, “I wish you much success and many blessings with the completion of your book…” I thanked him and turned to walk away, laughing to myself… with SO MUCH gratitude for the support… because really, I couldn’t make THAT up any better in my reality!

AND… things have started flowing again in multiple areas, just three short days of DOING this!

Now, I’m motivated. The writing itself is like a deep release that I didn’t realize I needed… it feels easy and freeing! And again, I ask myself… why was it that I put this off for so long? Could part of it be that I didn’t until now believe that something so profound and vulnerable and core to me could feel so good?

I recognize that it’ll come up to shift any grain of sand that’s left along the way that would allow the ego to block me; that’s why I feel like just three short days in, I’m receiving so much support from the aethers. However… the momentum’s started… and that’s all I really need; I’m READY!

 

Words, the Arts, and Our Advancement of Consciousness

Share

© Agsandrew | Dreamstime.comOver the past several years, I’ve watched so many, as they step into their spiritual remembrance and realize they’re ALLOWED to follow their passion, favor expression via some form of the arts – whether painting, sculpturing, music of all kinds, dancing, writing, you name it – and REALLY expand once they allow themselves to do so.

For so long, I’ve observed this, and wondered why, as our remembrance of existing in higher consciousness unfolds, this seems to be important. It’s always felt good… and it’s always felt necessary; yet, according to the “3D standards,” the arts are generally a “nice to have” vs. a “necessary” part of our existence.

However, in my heart, I’ve always felt, “Of course,” even though I hadn’t yet remembered why.

My personally favored “art” – though I love many of them – is writing. I have much to write, it comes easily to me, and I know I consciously convey so much more energetically with the energy and remembrance I infuse in my words, than the words do in themselves.

Recently, I came across an article talking about author Stephen King’s tips on “How to Be a Great Writer.” One of the 22 very good points in this article was, “Understand that writing is a form of telepathy.”

‘All the arts depend upon telepathy to some degree…an important element… is transference. Your job isn’t to write words on the page, but rather to transfer the ideas inside your head into the heads of your readers…

Words are just the medium through which the transfer happens…’

Bingo!

It’s sometimes been a little disheartening to see some struggle with their heart being set on some form of arts, yet their mind (ego) telling them that it’s an “unimportant” pursuit in the bigger scheme of things… as the 3D world (friends, family, culture, you name it) will tell them this is so. I’ve watched them get a good start and then see their effort falter and sometimes regress – or go completely defunct –  as their ego causes them to question their worth, and tells them that they would be better suited to “put that on the back burner” to pursue “world-worthy efforts” instead; this assures the ego of the individual’s value in 3-4D society. I recently saw the lamenting of a fantastic artist I know – who REALLY infuses her intuition and Higher Consciousness/Remembrance into her art – mentioning she’d gone through a tough period of feeling down about herself because she was “just an artist.”

So, let’s step away from that for a moment, and observe it. My understanding is that our focus now is to progress BEYOND the “traditional” and REPETITIVE rise and fall of the 3-4D; time to allow the management of existence from a fully integrated consciousness, including from our 5th dimensional Self and above (TO NOTE: Yes, we ALL have that; the 1-4D versions of our Self is just a TINY piece of the whole of our consciousness, and yet, our lessons before now have been generally been to allow the separation-driven energies of the 1-4D rule our experience in those planes, while we’ve just gone about our other lessons in higher consciousness). Now, it’s time to bring it altogether, ALL consciousness apparent at ALL levels.

As I often discuss with others, all “things” that exist in the 1-4D have been Divine tools of expression that we’ve created for these kinds of lessons. We’re the Divine expressed as we are for these lessons. The separation-based existence we’ve pursued here is based from there possibly being something OUTSIDE of us – and we often and mostly forget here that all of that which is OUTSIDE of us is created from the Divine WITHIN us… simply tools that remind us how to consciously and purposely access that within ourselves. Eventually, as we remember that… we let go of the tools.

Words, art, music, and movement are some of the MOST POWERFUL tools we’ve created!

They’re based in the heart; in the intuition; and, when allowed to be fully expressed, allow the consciousness of the Higher Self to shine through… helping ALL who have exposure to it to tap into that part of themselves. It’s with these media that we convey so many feelings and understandings – and Remembrance – that are so, so, SO much bigger than the 3D representations in themselves!

As we progress down the path of our Remembrance of Higher Consciousness here in our 1-4D Self, in the 3D world, my understanding is that we’ve cycled so many times – Remembered and “fell,” to start/cycle over again – that we’ve completed these lessons, and it’s time to do things differently. We’ve gotten lost, over and over, in the pursuit of the mind, the pursuit of separation… and now it’s time to Remember the pursuit of the Spirit, the heart, and connectedness while simultaneously completing these lessons in such separation.

Since the practice of the Arts – of all kinds – brings forward, in its full glory, the reflection of the Spirit and Higher, connected Consciousness… then THAT would make it one of the MOST IMPORTANT practices to honor in the 3D world, foregoing all of the “mind-based” pursuits we’ve come to love so much, in the pursuit of separation!

Why? Because the Arts help us to Remember.

The more we allow ourselves to exist in connectedness and Oneness as we pursue our individual journeys here at the consciousness level of this particularly separation-based Universe, the FASTER we will collectively attain our goal of transcending the barriers on which we’ve previously tripped in forgetfulness. The individual connection to this connectedness that comes through via the Arts, the amazing tools in this category that we’ve created as a REMINDER here, actually help to propel our Remembrance light years beyond any separation- and mind-based activity/pursuit that we’ve created here. So yes, I fully agree that the Arts are a form of telepathy from this standpoint; and in that, I now have the answer to those I know, and to those whose paths I continue to cross, when they doubt the “validity of their existence” because as they pursue their spirituality, and their heart opens to and wants to express itself via this set of tools.

It’s one of the MOST important things for us to pursue… in helping ourselves, and in helping others Remember our connectedness. Are you up to the task of its purity? Just allow…

 

Unpacking the Boxes of Our Perception

Share

weareone1In my household, we’ve always been purposeful in bringing up my two children (who are now on the cusp of 19 and 17) in an inclusionary way. We’ve stayed away from describing people via DIFFERENCES, and instead focused on celebrating our SIMILARITIES. We’ve stayed away from focusing on any perception of lack – from ourselves and/or others – and instead have mostly focused on the awesome things about everyone we know.

The other day, my oldest was talking about someone she knows, and started referring to the person via what she perceives is their parents’ income bracket. This was new, and a huge surprise to me, as we have friends from all throughout the spectrum of income, and it’s pretty much never before been a topic of conversation in our household. I asked her why it mattered and how she even knew any of that beyond her own supposition, and she said, “Well, it doesn’t matter… I’ve just observed this…” Without any qualifying reason for it to have been part of discussion. And then I realized, in her young adulthood, though she has a solid foundation from our household, she of course has influence via her access to the rest of the world, via college, work, and friends… and our household is STILL a rarity.

News flash: Our culture – and our experience through this experience of duality – has created an obsession with categories – what I call “boxes” – that limit us or others, that put us in an invisible hierarchy and perceptions of superiority and/or lack based on nothing but the illusions we create! And, BIGGER news flash: It’s time to let that go!

How much money someone makes, what kind of house someone lives in, what kind of car someone drives, what kind of clothes someone wears (and where they shop), what kind of food they eat, combined with hierarchies around gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, political beliefs (by the way, typically based on all of the above), weight, hair and eye color, attractiveness, the list goes on and on… and on. We often categorize and judge someone (ourselves included) based on any or all of the above, and yet we judge it in comparison to our PERSONAL filters of judgment around each of those categories.

Why do we continue to judge ourselves and others in this way? From my perspective and understanding, our physical bodies, our physical circumstances, and everything around us is perfect for the lessons we, as individual souls, would like to complete. We write, produce, direct, and act in the play of our own device, as part of the same of the collective, bigger picture that we collectively write, product, direct, and act in.

In duality, we take pride in the “that” and “not that.” We’ve done boxes in an extraordinary way! However, it’s important to remember that when we’re done with a particular set, we throw the script away, take off the costumes, take off the “meat suits,” or whatever suit our consciousness has currently chosen… we are simply equally awesome parts of the Divine Consciousness. WE’RE ALL THAT! Then we progress to write, produce, direct, and act in yet another play for ANOTHER set of lessons.

In my practice, I see a full spectrum of income, beliefs, race, gender, lifestyles, backgrounds, you name it… I have friends across the spectrum, as well. Yet, none of that matters to me, in the least – if anything, it makes my experience all the more colorful with such a variety! What DOES matter to me the MOST is, are they unhappy or happy in their current experience? That’s all that’s my concern; underneath everything else, beyond all of the boxes, all I see is an incredible, Divine being that is also a reflection of me in some way, from some time. When I see everyone that way, how can I help but just sit in a space of love for everyone else?

My goal, in helping others, is to help them remember their happiness, how to live in bliss… whatever picture that paints for THEM. When we do that, our Divine Truth and ultimate soul’s purpose naturally comes through, regardless of what the 3D looks like to others! AND… ultimately, EVERYONE can achieve their own happiness, once they realize they’re allowed to in whatever picture THEY desire.

When we do that, we begin seeing our similarities, and honoring the color that our different journeys create. We enjoy ourselves and each other more fully, and reach out, heart to heart, in a much higher vibration, in pure connection. We share, rather than hoard; we love, rather than fear; we identify, rather than isolate.

I remember seeing somewhere one of the first astronauts who said that from outer space, the Earth is simply that… Earth. No political boundaries, no separation… just a beautiful planet, as part of this amazing solar system. Time for us to remember each other in the same way, in full acceptance as part of the magnificent, Divine Oneness that we are.

 

What About These Earthquakes and Volcanoes?

Share

volcanic-ring-of-fireI find this article really interesting… I’ve been watching this for the past 5 years, and so fascinating how things are playing out… 40 Volcanoes Are Erupting Right Now, and 34 of Them Are Along the Ring of Fire

First of all, before any of my comments, I want to preface with THERE IS NOTHING TO BE FEARFUL about. This is just observation… and we ARE in the midst of great change and shifting at ALL levels – yes, even our planet. The shifting itself and what manifests isn’t “wrong”; how we deal with it energetically is key – if we act with fear, then what we fear will manifest. If we continue to focus on raising our vibration and helping that of the planet’s, this will be as graceful and easy as possible… and regardless of what appears to be happening in the 3D, it will all flow.. if we let it.

Shortly after I first began REALLY “seeing” (in 2009), and my lines of connection really opened up to my/the Higher Consciousness, Archangel Ezekiel (Archangel of Transformation and Death) – one of my closest buds along this part of the journey, who’s been there from day one – “reminded me” what was to come. He was showing me in context to helping to “nudge” me (aka “the etheric 12×12 upside the head” LOL) into action, to “get it together” and get to a place of doing what I’m doing today, and FAST… because it was important for a number of us who had signed up to do so to “be in place” as this all started to accelerate. When I asked what “this” meant, he showed me… many visions of stuff like this picture, and told me, “There is a dramatic shift already started… and it will be fast, intense, and only as smooth as every individual decides to allow… on the physical plane, there will be many earthquakes and fires…”

Earthquakes and fires.

I remember asking how long this total transformation would take in this timeline; he told me that a majority of it would be over the next 10 years… and then continue on to be complete within 100 (which, by the way, is a VERY short time in terms of the “old” physical 3D plane).
I remember that was about a week before the Haiti earthquake in 2010; that seemed to really, really get the ball rolling.

All of this came back to me as I read this article… and it’s pretty cool how things have really, REALLY accelerated in the past several years, and how many of the visions/precognitive remembrances I’ve had have come to pass… although there are a number that are still “out there.” Is it bad? Absolutely not! However, it’s more important than EVER BEFORE to get in touch with inner guidance, with connection to your HIgher Self/Higher Consciousness… because my understanding is that the further we go, the more it’s important to depend on what’s WITHIN, vs. what the physical eyes see around us. Important to integrate all levels of consciousness (including the ego) for optimal experience. Shifting our experience this way with absolute grace and ease… and fun!

Yes, the Earth is shifting, too… and thus, she’s only doing what SHE needs to do. We perceive it as “bad” when we live in the path of that… but that’s our individual choice of experience, and simple the intertwined lesson plans that can be shifted for the more graceful, easy, and fun, too! We can simply honor her shifting – as part of the physical organism here – and focus on raising our own individual vibration as high as possible to help support the collective, the oversouls, the organism.

If you tend to use a lot of tools in your intuitive work, I will tell you that what I’ve seen consistently is the Tower card in the tarot deck… which is symbolic of the crumbling of that doesn’t serve us (the tower falling down around us). Many have fear of this, yet it’s truly cleansing and liberating… and it’s AWESOME… as long as we LET GO of that which doesn’t serve us!

So, if nothing has prompted you before… maybe this will… it’s time to LOOK WITHIN. Time to find peace within ourselves, to remember that the Divine Consciousness is just as fully INSIDE of us as outside of us… and to remember that WE are the Light; WE are the ones who volunteered to be here through this very unique, very powerful time… to be a part of the party through this experience!

This is really the core of what I do… I help others clear the way and then remember that all of the Divine Ability is within… and we are ALL psychics, healers… and we are ALL the Divine, expressed as who we are for the very individual, PERFECT purpose we have!

If you’d like assistance with this… contact me!

I also did a half-hour Living the Shift episode based on this on May 19, 2015; watch it now!

Spring Equinox/Solar Eclipse: TRANSCEN-DANCE!

Share

FunenergyartAfter a strange and clunky day yesterday, with many having rather interesting reactions to things all around me, I went to sleep last night in the simplicity and bliss of Divine Consciousness… and I had a dream that really stuck with me this morning! In the “dream,” friends had had a baby, and they thought the child was deformed or sick. I realized they simply couldn’t see the full presence of the child, because it was only partially here in the 3D. I walked over to the baby, laying on a padded table (this was in a hospital), and it smiled at me (I knew immediately it was androgynous, genderless), because it knew I fully saw and knew it. The baby reached out its hands for me, and the parents were telling me I should keep away, until they knew “what was wrong with it.” I ignored them, walked over, took the baby’s hands, and helped it sit up. We gazed into each other’s eyes in unconditional love… and giggled together at our “private joke” (since we could fully see each other, when others couldn’t). We connected effortlessly telepathically, and I was guided to lean forward so my forehead would connect with the baby’s forehead. Then… an explosion of laughter and bliss and colors beyond imagination! I woke up n that energy, and have felt its flow ever since!

Part of the shift in the past 24 hours (at this Spring Equinox and Solar Eclipse) has been the Higher Self pushing us to explore,”Can I STAY transcendent to the old 3D paradigms, regardless of what it ‘looks like’ around me? Can I STAY in a vibration of ‘love and above’ no matter what… and act DIFFERENTLY, stay clear in Higher Consciousness, and BE instead of REACT?” Doing this propels us forward, because we then stop being “stuck in the mud” once and for all.

Once we master this, the illusion becomes a piece of cake. Stay observant, especially your reaction to the self-imposed limitations of others… and just choose to BE, in love, play, and bliss.. and the rest shall be!!!

Having Some Tough Moments? Hours? Days? How to Shift from that…

Share

ThisMomentWe’re going through a lot of deep, deep releasing of that which doesn’t serve us right now, both collectively and individually. We’re letting go of what’s left of the “old 3D” and the “old way of doing things”… which, in many cases, is causing what the ego perceives as a LOT of upheaval in day-to-day life, whether it’s losing a job or a home, releasing old relationships, manifesting a chronic or potentially terminal illness… forcing us to look dead on at whatever’s left to release… to open the door for change and higher vibration living to come.

And it’s accelerating, so we can get to the “even better stuff”!

The way we experience this shifting and crumbling away of all of this old facade is completely up to us as individuals. We can try to hold on, white-knuckled, because we’re afraid of change and the unknown… or we can let go, transcend the “crumbling,” and allow ourselves to flow with it, thus embracing the next steps of this adventure.

I know, it sounds simple! And yet, for many, there’s a lot of fear and kicking and screaming, with white-knuckled holding on, even as it all melts away. Even those of us who are more adept at staying in the flow have moments of being overwhelmed when we allow ourselves to get caught up in it… and have the moments of trying hold on, with feelings of, “Can I really do this? Can WE REALLY do this?”

My guidance, in those moments, is to simply re-center myself, close my eyes, take a deep breath, feel the Divine light coming through from my heart, spread it out through my body and beyond… and remember PRESENCE. In those moments, I also say to myself, “There is ONLY this moment… and in THIS moment, I choose Love.”

Sometimes I have to say it several times until I feel it “kick in”… and it ALWAYS helps! The importance, in the most ego-based, resistance-based moments, is to be observant of such, and transcend beyond what the 3D looks like… going back to our NATURAL state of Oneness and Love. Whether we need to do it one day at a time… one hour at a time… or one moment at a time… it’s re-training ourselves to remember the illusion is just that… illusion, all for the purpose of the greater lesson we set out for ourselves.

As always… please share, below and with others who may need this; we’re all here together! 

Much, much love to you,

How Do You Dream Big? Take the first step…

Share

DreamBigWhat would you do if you knew you could not fail? What would you do if you knew you would be leaving this life or this existence next week? What would help you to live in THIS moment, and make the ABSOLUTE BEST of it as possible? What’s preventing you from doing that NOW?

As part of the Divine, we are limitless; yet part of the game we’ve created and played brilliantly in the 3D incarnation is the creation of and adherence to perceived limitations. Beliefs, soul agreements, disempowerment, you name it! Often, when one allows themselves to dream… they do so with limitations around it. WHAT IF you could surpass even your wildest dreams? (You can.) What would you do… do you even consciously know?

Start today! Here’s an exercise to try: With a journal and a pen, find a place where you feel unbound and you can sit uninterrupted for at least 30 minutes; nature is a great place to do so; especially an established old tree… the bigger the better (I’ve had some of the most awesome BEing lessons from huge, aged trees)! Close your eyes… clear your mind… take a few deep breaths… and just allow yourself to be for a bit. Become one with everything… feel/expand the light from your heart, then spread it out to encompass all around you, like a big etheric hug. Feel the ISness of everything. Just sit there for a few minutes; can you feel the peace? Can you feel the expansion?

After you’ve done this for a little bit (ideally at least 15 minutes or so), come back to yourself while keeping the connection. Ask yourself, if I could do ANYTHING, BE anything, unlimited by anything or anyone else (and without dependency on anyone else)… what would I do? What would I be? And note the FIRST THING that comes to your mind. DON’T filter it; don’t allow the ego to shoot it down… but WRITE IT DOWN. This is for you and you only… no one else needs to see it, so no holding back. Then ask yourself, if I were to entertain that, what would be very first step? Most often, it’s releasing beliefs that you can’t do that; sometimes it’s releasing fears that you’ll fail, that you’ll succeed (far more common than you might think), that you’ll be a “bad person” for some reason like changing your family/friends’ lives by you changing or doing something different. However… know that you CAN attain your passion… and know that ultimately, the only one holding yourself back is YOU! It’s acknowledging this, and then DOING something about it to step in that direction. YOU CAN DO IT!

If you don’t even know how to start… find someone outside of your existing circle to help you, ESPECIALLY to help you to release those beliefs, fears, etc. that are holding you back! Many don’t even KNOW what it is that ignites their passion and makes their own heart sing BECAUSE of all the beliefs in place that cause them to box themselves in to roles they were taught to fill, that they were told are their obligations, that “content is enough”… and in the process, they’ve forgotten what would make them wildly happy, in a place of love EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY.

I worked with a client in her mid-40s to help her release the multitude of tethers that caused her unhappiness, dis-ease, and limitations in her every day life; she had been tethered to filling the role of supportive mother and wife for years first and foremost; though she loved her family, she was literally withering away, like an unfed flower, because everyone else’s wants and needs came first. As we worked on releasing the beliefs, fears, and agreements around all of that… she started to see her own spark again. Finally, one day, I asked her, “If you could do ANYTHING with your life, what would you do? What would make your heart sing?” She hesitated… and I asked her to tell me what had come to mind BEFORE the ego had intervened (and thus the hesitation). She said that when she was younger, she’d wanted to dance; that dancing had been her dream, because she never felt as much in her element, as much herself, as when she would dance.

So I told her to dance.

At first, she balked, “How can I do that? I don’t have the right body; I’m not in good enough shape; I can’t ______________…” I explained to her that if that’s truly her passion, she could – and SHOULD find a way! I continued working with her to help her release all that kept her from that (including the fear that it would destroy her family/marriage).

And she started dancing.

This woman has become a dear, dear friend of mine… and I want you to know that only 3 years later, she has a successful business teaching Zumba and a variety of other dance workouts! She’s also practicing and teaching energy work, and hopes to incorporate both next… to teach a meditative dance class! She’s released her physical limitations (including a number of food allergies), she’s processed through shifting the dynamics of her relationship with her family to one that is far more integrative and supportive of herself … and she’s BLOSSOMED into her full, effervescent, beautiful self by stepping into her shoes and ALLOWING herself to do it! She DOES dream big now… expecting international visibility for wherever her passion brings her. Once we allow ourselves to do so, the doors just open wide and the awesomeness really begins to FLOW!

So, the first step is to start with looking at yourself; start with asking yourself, outside of your every day surroundings, and LISTENING to yourself in remembering your answer. KNOW you can DO IT… dare to dream BIG… and take the first step forward! You can do it!

This is my specialty; if you’d like assistance… as always, I’m here to help!

(P.S. This card drew me in in a tiny, beautiful store called Kizmit on Orcas Island, WA… because this woman felt like me… love such synchronicities! ♥)
