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,

Remember the Divine Light is Within

Share

QuoteoftheDayPart of the resolution of our existence of duality is remembering and recognizing that the Divine Light comes from within us, vs. “someplace out there” (the practice and use of this is the powerful basis of Trinity Energy Progression). This also translates to the remembrance that we have access to everything – all knowledge/wisdom – inside; it’s simply a matter of remembering that we can (which, of course, is part of the game).

The more we connect with our Divine Self and complete/release the lessons of duality via the ego, the more we remember in Oneness and Love…and the more we release that which no longer serves us, which is all based in the energy of separation – fear, anxiety, anger, regret, resentment, guilt, doubt, sorrow, and pain, which in turn affect all of the physical, mental, emotional, and environmental in our realities.

This is the journey of Awakening; and it’s the underlying principle of the purest energy healing. Time to release all duality – the energy of disempowerment, that there could be anything outside of us, and/or anything we are NOT.

Essentially… it’s the remembrance and recognition that we are the Light – EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US – and we are ALL our perfect expressions of the Divine in the form and lessons that we have chosen.

The more we release around the energies and emotions of separation, the more we raise our vibration, the more we remember the Light is within… and the stronger our Light shines! This is one of our PRIMARY purposes now: to circle back around to such Remembrance, and remember how to live in love and honor ALL in this existence as equally a part of the Divine. We need to do nothing else but shine our Light more brightly; the more we do that, the more we help others around us do the same… and the more of a domino effect it becomes.

So, step one is to remember your Light within! Here’s a simple, quick way of “tapping in” every morning that takes 5 minutes or less (so no excuses about no time for meditation!): Sit comfortably and centered so you can sit up straight. Close your eyes and take a few deep, slow breaths. Start to see if you can feel your heartbeat… and start to see if you can HEAR it, inside your body. Breathe into your heartbeat, as if it’s your heart that’s breathing. Breathe in, expand… breathe out, release. In, out… in, out. As you breathe in to your heart, start seeing and/or feeling a beautiful, brilliant light coming from the center of your heart. This is your light of Divinity and unconditional love. As you breathe in, the light expands; as you breathe out, release all negativity, all toxicity. In, out… in, out. Breathe in… expand that light to encompass your chest, saturating every cell and in between every cell. See and feel that light getting more and more brilliant! Breathe in, out…. in out… now expand that light to your entire torso… to your arms, fingers, and head… feel this light of your Divinity and unconditional love saturate every cell, in between every cell. E-X-P-A-N-D…. breathe out. Breathe in again… expand this brilliant light to your legs, your feet, your toes… now this light is saturating your entire body, every cell and in between every cell. Feel it fill your entire body… brilliant, beautiful light of Divinity and unconditional love. Now, expand the light beyond your body, into your auric field… feel yourself and know yourself as a beacon of this light of Divinity and unconditional love. Breathe deeply into expanding this light… keep it there, then open your eyes… take a deep breath, and move on with your day!

Here’s a recording of a similar meditation (I think it’s 5-7 minutes), if you’d rather be guided the first few times.

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! ♥)

Opening to Abundance

Share

AbundancePossibleMany have constant complaints about lack of ________ – whether it’s money, love, happiness, peace, you name it – and yet, hold beliefs, agreements, and patterns that cause them to continuously live in lack.

Often I’m guided to ask, “Do you allow yourself to receive?” How many times does it happen that one complains that they don’t have this, they don’t have that… and yet, they won’t ask for it, and if someone else offers assistance to gain whatever it is, they won’t accept?

Here’s an easy affirmation for you to help start your day and remind you about ALLOWING; clear your mind and say to yourself (or out loud): “I invite, allow, accept, and embrace continuous, limitless and infinitely expansive benevolent abundance in my existence, in all ways, shapes, and forms with grace, ease, balance, harmony, and joy.” Then, close your eyes and envision yourself in a scene like this… I often see and feel golden, light/love waterfalls just streaming in toward me, flowing through me, being one with me… and sit with that for a few minutes. Lovely!

What Do YOU Consider “Healing”?

Share

When we are based in the mind/ego, we limit ourselves to expectations that we can only conjure in the mind/ego. When we hear the word “healing,” we often have a set of certain expectations in our mind that can ultimately limit us.

Important to ask yourself, does your mind consider healing – physical, mental, emotional, environmental, spiritual – “the alleviation of uncomfortable symptoms” (aka, “put on a Band-Aid”), or actually getting to the core underlying issues and removing them so the “symptoms” will disappear?

Ultimately, from an an energetic point of view, it is my understanding that “healing” is allowing full flow, full connection to the Higher Self/Divine, without limitations that are impeded by resistance – such as fear, anxiety, anger, resentment, regret, guilt, doubt, sorrow, and pain – and thus, allows experience of the higher vibrations of happiness, joy… and bliss.

When we put expectations around what that will look like, based on what the mind pictures… we often limit the result. Do you believe you can only heal so much, so far, because of ___________________ (your age, your weight, your genetics, etc.)? Do you just feel like “healing” would simply encompass removal of chronic pain? If you hold such beliefs, you will limit your ultimate result to that.

It’s the ego that puts a picture around the word… and such a powerful word it is!

Also, because of the physical element of healing, we often have our mind set certain expectations as to what that looks like… particularly with energy healing work. I remember once I had a client with whom I had one session; during the session, she told me she was in a serious funk because she’d lost her job, lost her home, she was living in one room of a friend’s house, and she wanted to just curl up into the fetal position and fade away. We worked on a lot that day energetically! After about a month passed from the session, I was nudged to send her an email to check in and see how she was doing, if she’d noticed any differences, etc. Her response was that she didn’t think our session had done much for her… but since we’d spoken, she’d gotten a new job, a new place to live, and had met some new people she really liked… and she was much, much happier. As it all did happen immediately after our session, I understood that what we’d worked on together had released a lot of what she’s held on to so she could open herself up energetically to what she desired… it was so graceful and easy that she hadn’t even realized it until I explained how it was connected!

I have worked with some who have what we consider “terminal dis-eases”… and though some may have ultimately chosen to transition, it was well worth all of the work to release all of the weights that had caused them to come into that physical state in the first place… because they were actually able to transition in peace, and now they don’t have to carry it forward into their next life, their next experience, as a lesson still to be learned. Is that a failure to the effort? Absolutely not… as long as we don’t attach our mind’s expectations to it. If we think that death itself is considered “failure”… then we limit ourselves.

We have many, many layers of experience… and thus, in the journey to remember our Divinity, the “healing” is to release resistance that we still hold, assimilate the lessons… and remember our light in unconditional love. What that “looks like” in 3D existence is different for everyone and continuously shifts as we do, but ultimately results in happiness, joy, love, and bliss! The key goes back to flow, flow, flow… as the energetic torus as pictured here, if we are in full flow, without resistance, we exist without pain, without difficulties… and can soar into our “next level.”

The Power of Your Words… and the Words in Your Power

Share

Do you fully pay attention to your words, to the reality you create in them? We are in such a habit of ignoring the power of our creation by the words we use, that even those of us who are very adept at doing so often have “blind spots” created by the ego that we can be challenged in noting (and changing)!

For example… do you say things like, “I’m too old to ____” “I don’t do well with a lot of other people…” “I’m getting old…” (implying you’re getting frail) “I can’t pull off something like that…” “I’m allergic to…” “I’m _______ (diabetic, bipolar, ADD, you name it)”? Often, we simply accept the limitations imparted to us by others (“you’re not ______ enough,” or “you’re too _______”), or we perpetuate cultural norms by accepting them and repeating them, again and again. We accept things that have limited us our entire lives… because we’ve let them limit us before.

We can change EVERYTHING. Yes, EVERYTHING… even what doctors, scientists, belief systems, institutions, and commercials tell us we can’t (an amazing story of an extreme example of this is Anita Moorjani’s book, “Dying To Be Me”). It’s been more of an exercise in duality… creating such disempowerment, telling ourselves – and each other – that others are more powerful, know more than we do, and that the Divine is outside of us, that it couldn’t possibly be within.

Part of our shifting into a new paradigm is recognizing that the Divine is WITHIN us, that we have access to ALL… and that we are CREATORS of our reality. The “return to magic” is very largely remembering the power of our own creation via thoughts and words, via remembering our Divine abilities – and that we can release and change anything – yes, ANYTHING – that limits us, in ANY way! In fact, the key areas in which to start to focus are where you limit yourself by your words and beliefs (see the statements above). That’s what we do in what’s called “energy work” – start with the core underlying issues, the non-physical causes to the physical, whether it’s purely physical, emotional, environmental, spiritual, etc. Eventually, as we release those causes, many issues formerly plaguing us simply disappear entirely.

I’ve seen it, first hand… and I’ve EXPERIENCED it first hand. I’ve seen instantaneous healings… and I’ve experienced them… of all types!

I get it; it can be scary to the ego… because it’s used to projecting blame onto others… that’s the comfort zone! The realization of this is that we’re fully responsible for our entire existence; our entire reality. Once this is accepted, blame disappears… and all we realize we’re doing is looking at the mirror within. The best way to do this? Letting go of the limitations of duality, and thus, judgment… to be able to look at ALL that is within and accept it… embrace it with love… and let go of the manifested limitations.

So, where to start? Take a day and set your intention to notice ALL of your “I AMs” – spoken AND unspoken – and write them down. Do you say, “I can’t do that because I’m ______”? How many times do you say that, along with “I’m not” or “I can’t”? The biggest challenge is in being CONSCIOUS of the thoughts and words, before you can change them!

Once we can notice the limiting patterns… we can CHANGE them! There are many, many ways to do so: simply changing our thought and word patterns (which sounds easy but takes a lot of continued consciousness and patience with ourselves), affirmations, meditation, and – my personal favorite – energy work, among other possibilities.

Here’s a start: Start your day with standing buck naked in front of a mirror, looking yourself straight in the eyes, and saying a simple “I LOVE MYSELF; I AM LIMITLESS.” It may be uncomfortable at first (I always get an uncomfortable shifting from others when I suggest this)… but as you change and shift, you will remember your self love more and more. And then… the other efforts start coming more easily.

And then, one day… PRESTO… things have shifted, in leaps and bounds!

Take it one step at a time… have patience with yourself… and LAUGH! Just commit yourself to the “active journey”… take some baby steps… and the rest will follow!

Persevering to the Gold… and Then Getting Past the Void Within (to Get to the Gold)

Share

These past few weeks have had the energy of support to finally… get… to… the… thorn that’s been in our side (even if we were “ignoring” it until now). Many things are/have been coming to a head for many, and depending on our choices (graceful and easy, or not?), it IS finally erupting so that we can LET IT GO.

Myself included; there have been some things “in my face” and a part of my experience for so long (throughout most of this life, and I understand many others, as well) that I can’t believe it took so long to SEE it, and then finally release it… TOTAL “DUH moments”! And then, once the main one was released… WOW… other “big things” just started coming up and flowing, flowing, flowing out. The result: It’s been HUGELY productive and cleansing! It’s been such a huge release and shift that I found I temporarily felt a huge, empty hole in place of those energies, because they’ve been a part of me for so long (even though they didn’t serve me, except to learn the lesson). I focused my efforts on releasing the feeling of the hole, and now, in its place has grown blessed peace, love, and AHHHHHH….

During this period, I’ve seen SO MANY symptoms of this, within myself, with clients, students, friends, family… and also institutions, belief systems, collective consciousness, you name it! The result is that for many, it feels like the world (the personal world, the world itself) is crashing down around them. Paradigms are shifting… so much is falling away in more ways than could previously be imagined!

What’s important to realize is that when our world feels that way, the lynchpin is actually our Self. Sometimes it’s most challenging for us to see in ourselves the deepest pieces of what may be holding us back… because the ego says, “Unh-unh… this is WHO WE ARE… who would we be if we let this go?” And so… the ego takes on the job of BUILDING the identity around it, and it creates a zillion excuses to SAFEGUARD it. It becomes very adept at hiding this as a limitation, and when a situation comes up that you KNOW limits you in some way, the ego justifies it (often like a martyr), and says, “Oh, that’s just who I am…” and similar ideas. It will vehemently maintain the BEing in the limiting state, because it’s afraid of becoming nothing otherwise. And… sometimes we allow the ego to sabotage us by keeping us JUST SHORT of reaching our goal… because reaching the goal is actually the biggest fear. There will be a LOT of “almost” situations, to keep us going (and, of course, the identity can stay in the mode of “working toward the goal,” which feels far safer).

I see this in very 3D ways… and I see this in very spiritual ways. I’ve seen some very adept and advanced healers/metaphysicians suddenly have a crash of sorts – physical, emotional, spiritual, and/or environmental – which feels like it came out of nowhere… and suddenly, all of their practices stop working in the fashion they’d worked before; they experience one major blockage after another… and it seems that the more they try things to remedy the situation and keep moving – regardless of what it is – the worse things seem to get. Nothing makes sense in terms of the results of their efforts… and it keeps on holding them back until they retreat from their previous efforts and sometimes give up for a bit (retreats), or find a strategic way to get BACK to the “comfort zone” (which sometimes seems different, but it’s simply the same thing disguised differently). This is from the ego sensing major danger (“Danger, danger, Will Robinson!”) because the person was actually getting REALLY CLOSE to the point of releasing a MAJOR limitation that’s been holding them back, something they’ve had well ingrained and incorporated into their identity… and the ego pulls out all the stops to hang on to the old identity for dear life (since my understanding is that it’s the ego’s primary job to create an identity separate from “the whole”).

When that happens… I’m telling you now: Know that YOU’RE ALMOST THERE. Know that obviously, there’s something in the vicinity of where you were when everything came crashing down that REALLY posed the release of this. That’s key!

So, we’re at the point in this Shift when it’s SO important that when we get to the “edge of the cliff” – even if we can’t see what’s beyond – that instead of staying at the edge indefinitely (or turning back), we TRUST and take a leap. We’ve come this far… might as well go all the way!

I know, I know, I make it sound so easy, right? I know it takes a lot of continuous effort; however, right now, this energy is so pervasive that the Higher Self isn’t giving us a whole lot of leeway… either we look at it ourselves or we manifest situations that will become so confining in some way, shape, or form that we finally have no choice but to be completely paralyzed, check out, or bust out of it, once and for all!

WOW… I promise you, the feeling of such deeply ingrained energies/limitations is EXHILARATING!

And then… the next part is really, really important to navigate in a very conscious way; after the release of such ingrained energies (habits and identity), the next typical reaction is a feeling of being lost, feeling sad, lonely… sort of like being in a void.

We don’t talk about this point beyond huge clearings much… but many don’t know how to get beyond that point; they don’t even know the words to describe what they feel. We think, WOW… I’m so glad I got rid of that/attained that/healed that… and then the ego scrambles and freaks out, saying, “NOW WHAT? WHO ARE WE NOW? WHAT DO WE DO?” If one doesn’t know what to do to move forward, sometimes they will slip backwards again and they will find a way to exhibit a different behavior that creates the same energy as what they just released… because that’s the “comfort zone” of the ego (it’s a “known evil,” and therefore, comfortable).

It’s SO perfect (of course) that these energies abound while the Winter Olympics in our 3D reality… because think about it: Many singularly train for the Olympics; for many, it’s been their entire life until now. So, say you win the gold medal, which was your ultimate goal, and you’re done with the Olympics now… what do you do next? Now what? Many go through a period of this “hole,” once the fanfare dies down… not knowing who they are anymore and where “to go” next. (And, by the way, that’s the period through which many fall into undesirable habits and “get into trouble”… because they don’t know how to “fill the hole” and simply find other ways to get the adrenaline of attainment going again.)

So…as we continue releasing such BIG stuff… there will be temporary periods of feeling a void… feeling lost… feeling like, “Good grief… this feels worse than I did before…” Sometimes, this provides feelings of isolation, loneliness, sadness (and tears), and/or fears of failure (because of releasing those energies in your life – which often sever relationships or situations that would perpetuate that “old energy”). This often exists in the gap of releasing those energies/behaviors from the identity and then expanding into our pure, undiluted, Divine self in that “space.”

First of all, recognize that this feeling of “the void” is simply the belief that you’ve lost an important part of you; and instead know that you’ve actually released a limiting part of you that will allow you to take another leap toward the full, Divine you and ultimate purpose that you came here to attain!

Well, there is meditation, of clearing the mind, focusing on the heart and the Divine light that you shine, and simply expand it out, out, out… (I have some basic guided meditations to do this available here on this Website). In doing so, you can set the intention/affirmation of releasing the “old identity,” and if you like, get conscious understanding of how this serves you in the highest and best way. If you’re a spiritual practitioner, focus your healing intentions on releasing the beliefs that you’re “less than” because of what you’re released, in any way, shape, or form. Whenever you’re feeling the heaviness, focus on expanding the light from your heart, brighter and brighter (and remember that the rest is all illusion).

If you feel like you need outside assistance in getting through this, you can talk to a practitioner of your choosing (I’d be glad to work with you... and there are many, many other spiritual mentors/advisors/healing facilitators available today who can help you – go by your inner guidance as to who will be best for you and your situation!). Do you have a spiritual discussion peer group, a place where you can talk about these feelings and the processing without judgment? This is a great forum to talk about it, and share your processing if you feel like you need outside support (for in person… if you’re in the central NC area, I moderate an open spiritual discussion group in three different Triangle locations monthly; see the Meetup; I’ve also built an interactive online spiritual community on Facebook; you can join here). Find a new hobby, do a hobby you enjoy more… remember how to ENJOY to space you’ve created, simply stay in the moment, and know/trust that now you’ve left space for something phenomenal to come in, in a way that DOES serve you in the highest and best way!

Right here, right now… if you would like a clearing that will provide assistance to allow you to resolve, dissolve, release, and clear the core underlying issues that would cause the feeling of a “void” after releasing prominent limitations in your life, remove the energy of that feeling of that void, and know how to allow your Self to positively and productively fill in the space left by the clearing in the highest and best way with the most grace and ease, just close your eyes, be open to receive, and say, “Yes – filling the void.”

Once we get through this… just know, we ALL get the gold!
