News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on Consciousness, Energy and Healing

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Consciousness, Energy and Healing tools. This conversation began 2 months ago when we discussed clothes and energy from wearing someone else’s clothes. Tom’s research and teaching is slightly controversial as he sees energy, healing and all the tools we use are really information or data and they are metaphors from this physical virtual reality. We don’t want people to think they don’t work, but to understand that our beliefs, intention and fears will effect whether a tool will work for us and how it works for us. We can see, feel, hear or know energy because we have learned this through how we have been taught and it makes sense to us. However, as Tom explains energy is just data and what we believe is energy is just a metaphor for this data, how we sense or feel this energy that can change something or has the ability to have an effect on us. Ultimately our healing and the tools we choose have more to do with our consciousness and power we give the tools. Consciousness is the active ingredient and everything else is a tool or metaphor. Through our intention to understand or heal someone it is through the larger consciousness system that will offer us the information we need to do this. That is why our intent and working with our consciousness will and does heal. We will gravitate to specific modalities or tools that offer the greatest understanding of what we are doing or having done to us. The tools work because we give them power and they make sense to us. The changes effect us from a BEing level and rarely work if they just come from ‘doing’ or a mental wish. The tools work because we have an intention that we believe in. Remember we are our consciousness not our body! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

June Newsletter 2017: From ME to Unconditional Love and Acceptance

Happy Solstice!

May has sailed by quickly and not without some drastic allergic reactions with added mold spores into the mix. What a wet and interesting Spring this has been! It seems that everything has been changing with regards to the summer forecast and how this new El Nino will unfold in our lives. From being an above average summer in regards to temperature to now being an above average in precipitation with average to below average in temperatures. I guess we will see how everything unfolds. But I for one am looking forward to the summer, a time to rejoice, swim, and connect with people (like me) who tend to hibernate during the cold winter months. Something makes us feel more free during the summer that I enjoy and take advantage of. Happy Solstice!! 🌞

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: June 2017

We ended the month of May in a place of Duality as the New Moon transpired in the sign of Gemini (May 25).  Many people were feeling like they were stuck between two places.  Now, the energy has moved away, but I believe it is due to the fact that most of us are simply accepting that sometimes you need to just sit on the fence with one leg on either side.  I call this feeling one of being in suspension, like you are hovering between two realities or states of being waiting for the universal clues as to the direction it is asking you to move in.

As we move into June, the energy is changing.  The duality may still exist as the Sun continues its Journey through the sign of Gemini (until June 21).  Where the options are the choice to love (unite) or the choice to fear (separate).  Do you find yourself bouncing back and forth between love and fear?  It may be very evident in your life, a situation in which there are both feelings being triggered.  Personally, I am focusing on the love dynamic as it feels so much better.  How does one choose their focus?  It is simply a matter of WILL.  Every time the fear rises into your being, simply state to yourself that you are safe and are choosing the path of love.  Use your will and power of thought to change your focus consciously.  I am not saying ignore the undesirable feelings, but simply try flip them into what you love or desire.  This is a muscle that one must keep working on with in their mind, and eventually that muscle has strength and the power to shift your response to what is transpiring.

On June 9th we experience the Full Moon in Sagittarius (at 9:09 AM EST).  This particular Full Moon is asking everyone to look at their need for survival.  Saturn is conjunct the Moon, opposite the Sun and one may feel the restrictions of Saturn in Sagittarius, but one interesting thing to note, is on that day, Jupiter (Sagittarius Ruling planet) will station Direct (at 10:02 AM EST).

I find it rather significant that this is happening on the same day.  Jupiter stationed retrograde on February 6th and as it did, it brought with it a symbol of “spiritual rebirth”.  A part of the self was required to be transformed on some level and during its retrograde phase and people were transforming at unprecedented levels.  While Jupiter transits the sign of Libra, the focus is on balance, harmony, and relationships.  Can you see how your relationships have shifted since then?  Can you identify with how you have evolved in your relationship sector of life?  Jupiter is the planet of luck, abundance, and grandiose experiences.  Hopefully, as he stations direct one can feel the abundance of the Universe working with them.  One can see in their life how the growth that Jupiter brings has assisted them with their own internal and spiritual growth process.  Of course, after a period of growth comes rest.  The need to relax becomes heightened as this planet moves forward.  Remember this was a period of internal growth (not necessarily external growth, which is what most people desire to see in their life.)

Then there is a pause, not a lot of astrological energy is taking place (outside of the inner planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars doing their day to day stuff).

The Sun will shift into the Sign of Cancer on June 21st, shifting our focus to our foundations in life.  The need for emotional security kicks into gear as the Summer begins!  The New Moon in Cancer takes place on June 23rd (at 10:30 PM EST).  This is always somewhat of a powerful New Moon as it is in its ruling sign of Cancer.  One may feel tested at this time, but it is my suggestion not to force anything into being, rather allow the creative process to unfold naturally.  This is the time to tap into the Creative Mind and allow yourself to explore the reigns of uncharted consciousness as you embrace new responsibilities that appear upon the path you are on!

Inspiration: From ME to Unconditional Love and Acceptance

This past month I have been very aware and focused on something that I have been discussing with Tom Campbell (and others) and writing about for the past couple of years: How to come from a place of unconditional love and acceptance. We often are too focused on how others affect us or when something happens; we unconsciously look at how it impacts us. An example would be when interacting in a relationship and there is a conflict we automatically look at what this conflict means to us. We take whatever the conflict is personally and we react personally and this means we react from a place of ego. We allow what is happening to trigger us emotionally and we perceive it from a pattern that has created a story in our lives.

Let’s give this even more meaning and look at it from a pattern of abandonment as this is a trigger most people understand. So we are engaged in a conversation with another person – and this could be any relationship although an intimate relationship often has more of a charge to it – and one of us gets triggered first and that often leads to the other person also getting triggered. Now we first have to understand that both of us have grown up having different experiences which leads to having different triggers and that leads to having different stories that we have created. Our experiences define our lives by the age of seven. By the age of seven we do not have an emotional understanding of our experiences and we don’t consciously understand what is happening to us. However our brain likes to clump our experiences together so that our ego can protect us from being hurt. Let’s understand that by the age of seven nothing is fully processed and our pain and fears are very uncomfortable. We make assumptions and beliefs from these experiences and this leads to a story being created around abandonment that may not even make logical sense at this later point in our lives. However this experience continues to trigger us because since the age of seven we have had plenty of experiences that have been clumped together that have added to our understanding of abandonment. We have had friends, family,  partners and co-workers and others leave us in some way that we have interpreted as abandonment – even when it is just an interpretation or perception that they have left ‘us’.

Now, moving forward 20, 30, 40, or 50 years and we engage in a relationship that is triggering someone else or still triggering ourselves. We unconsciously interpret it as abandonment. We get triggered or we trigger someone else who then triggers us and we react. We react the same way as we did when we were seven. We might not have a temper tantrum like we did when we were two but the emotional impact, the emotional charge, is the same. We perceive this as something happening to us personally. We experience this event as the same ‘story’ we have created and we react mostly unconsciously from a place where this hurts. We react!

If we are on a path that is evolving towards love this requires us to not take anything personally – especially things that impact us negatively – but rather for us to move into a place of unconditional love and acceptance.  To evolve towards love we must consciously understand and see when we want to first react and then, instead, take charge of our personal view of the situation. We want to become aware of our emotions. When we are with another and we are sharing a conversation with that person or even sharing space and they get upset we typically go into survival mode and our ego looks to justify, blame or judge who is right or wrong. When someone does something we don’t like or want, we automatically add this experience to our story and our ego is in charge. We have to understand that every single person has their own story that was created by the age of seven. Everyone has their own issues, their own ego, their own pain, fear and suffering that is ‘real’ to them.

We have to be able to ‘see’ our automatic reactions as what they are. Then we have to be able to ‘see’ the person in front of us as also having an automatic reaction. And this is where it gets interesting; this is when we can make a choice. The first choice is: do I come from a place of ‘me’ and how is this affecting me? Do I automatically justify, blame and/or judge this situation or person as abandoning me? Do I add this to my story of abandonment? Or can I step outside of my initial response and make another choice? Can I then look from a place of ‘other’ and see that no matter what is said or done that this person actually believes they are trying to persevere through their pain and their own abandonment story? They are trying to do what is ‘right’ for them and it is just ‘their’ story when they get triggered. They are justifying, blaming and judging the situation based on their own experiences and story created by the age of seven.

On this path towards evolving towards love we can become more conscious by knowing that whenever we are triggered or feeling uncomfortable that this is just a reaction to a story or experience we had in the past. Then we can really ‘see’ and hold space for another while we are with them. We can create a safe space of consciousness and acknowledge that when someone reacts it really has nothing to do with us and instead of reacting to our emotions, we can allow those emotions to get provoked without our reactions or these emotions getting in the way. We can learn a great deal about the other person when we don’t go into reaction mode with them. We can change our story and stop or heal our unconscious reactions. Plus, once we can hold space and BE from a place of consciousness we can see the “other’s” fears and triggers. We can sit with them and not feel our own pain and fear. We can stop the pattern or our reactions and come from a place of ‘truth’ as we understand that both the pattern and/or our reactions are triggered and our reaction and the other person’s reactions are not rational but from a perspective of a young child who doesn’t understand. This gives space for everyone to come from an authentic place and not automatically react. It offers a ‘safe’ place, something that not everyone has experience with. Let’s give them a safe place. It will be good for all of us.

My focus on choosing not to be triggered by myself or others this month was a wonderful opportunity for me to understand this concept from a place of expansion and awareness. It was an opportunity for me to see how others can get triggered because they are only coming from a ‘me’ place. These experiences have allowed me to quiet my anxiety and quietly hold authentic space for another person to BE and for me to see the bigger picture and move towards my evolution towards Love!  You may want to take this upcoming month and focus on the same thing and see how your understanding can expand. Perhaps creating a ‘trigger journal’ where you write down every day what has triggered you and see if you can chose to not get embroiled in the emotion but rather observe it and see it from a perspective of unconditional love and acceptance. Happy Awareness!

Why you might want a House Clearing and Blessing

It isn’t just the economic times, market correction or interest rates that impacts home sales.

Have you ever walked into a room and felt like something was wrong? Perhaps you felt the air was thick, as if you could almost feel an argument that occurred there many hours earlier? Do you sometimes walk into a house that feels ‘off?’ It’s a place where you start to feel anxious and can’t wait to leave. Maybe you’ve somehow sensed a room in your own home just doesn’t feel the same as the rest of the house, causing you to avoid it. Continue reading

April Newsletter 2017: Understanding Our Choices

Happy Easter!

Spring is definitely here, although winter has tried to hold on a few times.  We have quite a few planets in Retrograde this month, fortunately Venus will go direct on the 15th, although it is not before Saturn on the 6th and Mercury on the 9th, which is added to Jupiter which doesn’t go direct until June 9th. So, be gentle especially for the first couple of weeks this month!

Spring is a time for New Beginnings and shedding the winter energy to move into Awakening and Newness. The day is getting longer, our energy is lighter and we all desire to shake off the winter (not that it has been all that bad of a winter) and ‘spring’ into new things. Whether that is clothing, relationships, work or home, we all want to do a ‘spring’ cleaning and make way for new inspiration and possibilities!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: April 2017

We start April with Venus still being in Retrograde.  It has been an interesting retrograde cycle thus far.  Venus moved into Retrograde on March 4th at 13° of Aries.  On April 2nd, she shifts back into the sign of Pisces altering the dynamic of the energy before she stations direct on April 15 at 26° of Pisces.  This particular retrograde cycle may have triggered many fears, which may have manifested as anxiety or frustration.  When operating from a place of fear one is powerless.  However, the lesson of Venus in Aries is to own your power, and making choices from a place of power, not from a place of fear.  As she shifts into the sign of Pisces on April 2 the dynamic changes, for it is no longer about making a choice, it is about sitting with a choice that was made and reflecting on the outcome.

The reflection process continues as Saturn stations retrograde on April 6 at 27° of Sagittarius.  Saturn retrograde is stimulating restructuring.  What do you need to restructure in your life?  There is an opportunity to heal the structures in your life when Saturn squares Chiron on April 30.  There are many things that people may be focusing on restructuring or healing, but ultimately while in the sign of Sagittarius we are focusing on expressing our true self.  We are being asked to let go of emotional patterns which block us from being authentic.  Again, this aspect may stimulate a sense of introspection allowing one to ponder on past memories, relationships, or events that may have triggered pain in your life at some point in time.  Saturn will remain retrograde until August 25, 2017.  There is plenty of time to gain understanding into what you need to restructure your life.

On April 9, Mercury will station retrograde at 4° of Taurus, potentially showing us that nothing is permanent.  Again, we are being asked to turn inwards with our thought process.  One can activate internal questioning of personal values and beliefs.  The desire is to try and find a path to greater stability, security, or comfort.  But one must be open with their thought process.  Take the time to quiet the mind so that one can remember old ideas of worth that may have been forgotten, as they exist in the subconscious mind where the memories are stored.  Mercury will station direct on May 3 at 24° of Aries and as he does, one may be able to envision new possibilities.

Pluto, the powerful transformer will also station retrograde on April 20 at 19° Capricorn.  One will have the potential to look around and see what needs to be transformed within your their life.  It is easy to see what needs to transform in society, but it is usually more difficult to dive into the depths of your Soul and face its shadows.  Pluto will station direct on September 28 at 16° Capricorn and hopefully this retrograde cycle has given you the ability to release your inhibitions, to set yourself free and to express yourself beautifully.

On April 28, the North Node will shift into the sign of Leo, activating aspects of the self that each individual needs to tap into (over the course of the next year until November 7, 2018).  The North Node is the path that we are following, the path we are being asked to walk.  In the sign of Leo, one is being asked to express their individuality.  To follow their hearts desires.  We are moving through our fears before this energy transpires so that our fear can be released from the heart center.  Love and fear can not exist in the same place at once.  You are either in a space of love or you are in fear.  When we activate our hearts desire, ultimately it is better if you are focusing from a place of love.  If you activate your hearts desire while in a place of fear, you are not operating from the point of power.  One must strengthen their willpower, tap in to their enthusiastic nature, and emanate self-confidence while taking risks and having fun.  This is what the North Node in Leo will teach us over the next year.

In the month of April, acknowledge your fears, stand up to them with courage, restructure and align with your truth, heal the past, clear the mind, transform your perspective and stand in your power!  It may sound like a lot, but in truth, it is all connected to one state of BEing!

Inspiration: Understanding Our Choices

Understanding our choices is the topic I want to explore this month. This month has been filled with choices: some I found were sabotaging and others empowering. I filled my days during this Venus retrograde with new choices and becoming conscious of my sabotaging efforts as a result of those choices.

I have been preparing for my interview with the Hulnick’s on their new book “Remembering the Light Within” which has been very confirming of my work over the past few years and my work with this material brought up some of the key points I am working with in this article. These key points were further anchored through me and my clients in recent weeks.

How can we see that all the things that are apparently happening ‘out there’ are really just part of the ‘story’ we’ve created about ourselves and our situation? How can we see that all the ‘things’ out there are actually ‘neutral’ and we are the ones who choose to get upset with – or excited by – ourselves or others? And how do we see that we end up ‘judging’ ourselves or others from a place of EGO instead of the opportunity to come from a place of ‘acceptance’? It is always one or the other: judgment or acceptance! Unfortunately judgment seems to be ingrained in our behaviors, beliefs and actions and it is accepted that we judge ourselves or others because it is unconscious.

In their new book, “Remembering the Light Within” Dr’s Mary and Ron explain that the “thoughts you project and the story that you’ve created about yourself become a powerful attractor field that draws to you experiences that validate and thus reinforce your beliefs and your resulting story.” I’m going to give an example that will relate to this idea.

We have discussed in many blogs the concept of ‘our story’ and this story typically relates to one or more of our three basic core fears: fear of the unknown; fear of abandonment or separation; or fear of unworthiness. We often experience our core fears – and therefore stories – in our relationships. So someone leaves us or betrays us. This is our perception of what is happening which is a judgment. And this abandonment or betrayal happens because we have already established this story from our past experiences. So we are choosing to react judgmentally instead of seeing each event as neutral. We are justifying our reaction by saying something like “I’m unhappy because…”. It keeps the ‘story’ alive and then events are all perceived within the story. People do something and we are justifying what is happening as our story and core belief.

When someone leaves they aren’t leaving us. When something happens that feels like a betrayal it is because we have judged it through our experiences and story as a betrayal. Those people are just reacting from their own experiences and story; their own fears. Their issues very likely have nothing to do with us. But our ego can’t see it that way. We are too attached to our story and how we feel within the situation and we justify what is happening as what is happening to ‘us’.

Our choices come around recognizing that we are choosing to either add them to our story and judge the situation as ‘happening’ to us or … we are choosing love. And when we choose love this is when we can reframe our issues as blessings. We can take responsibility for everything that happens because it doesn’t happen ‘to us’ it is a neutral happening and we can know it has a Divine Purpose in our lives; that all of our struggles and challenges are opportunities for Blessings and healing.

A point that the Hulnick’s make is that “unresolved issues aren’t in the way; they are the way”. They offer us an opportunity to heal. How empowering is it to know that each struggle or challenge is helping us grow and heal? “Remembering the Light Within” like other great teachings suggests that these ‘challenges and opportunities’ will guide us to remember we are already whole and we just believe these things that are ‘happening’ to us show where we are ‘perceiving’ we are not whole but separate from Source.

When we can take responsibility for everything in our lives we move into a place of acceptance and we choose how we want to BE inside. We can choose to BE happy regardless of what is happening outside of us and know that when we want to blame or justify our reason for being unhappy that it is our own ‘stuff’ coming up as a gift for us to heal. Instead we often seek acknowledgement from others and share all of our problems in hopes to confirm our justification for being upset. We are allowing the outside to determine how we feel instead of choosing how we want to feel and letting that be how we respond to life.

Can you understand your choice in every moment is to choose Love, Compassion, and Acceptance that we are already Whole, Awake and connected to the Divine Source. We are a Soul having a human experience and our True Essence is LOVE!

Mar Newsletter 2017: Healing through Dreams & Synchronicities

Happy Spring Equinox!

March may well bring an early Spring here in Toronto, as this past month has been the warmest Feb in history (or so I believe) and it appears our weather experts were wrong. LOL BIG surprise, our brief La Nina has somehow turned back into an El Nino? Not sure what that is saying about our environment? But it was a lovely surprise to have a sunny day that reached 64 F in Feb. Especially how dark it was in Jan.

Our eclipse season has ended, hope it was as easy as it suggested for you. I had some strange almost Mercury Retrograde experiences with my website and today with MailChimp (but that is site wide) when we aren’t in any difficult retrograde periods until the 4th when Venus goes retrograde for almost 6 weeks and Mercury goes retrograde April 9th. So be gentle with yourself this month and next. No use getting all frustrated over nothing.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: March 2017

Ah, the Month of March has arrived, and with that brings the renewal energy of the Spring time.  The scent of the moist soil as the tulips begins to veer above the earth’s surface.  The symphony of birds as they sing to the glorious, rising sun every morning.  The orange-chested robins hopping around on the ground as they search for food and nesting supplies.  The buds on the trees as they sprout for life sharing their vibrant green colors to create a new pallet upon the horizon.  Spring  is a time of renewal, new life and new beginnings!

2017’s ruling planet of growth and abundance, Jupiter, will aspect two outer planets as it continues its journey in the sign of Libra (relationships).  But Libra’s ruling planet, Venus will station retrograde at the beginning of the month.

On March 2nd, Jupiter opposite Uranus may stimulate a sense of excitement or a sense of fear within the self.  One must take some time to ponder on life, which allows you to tap into the creative and joyous responses to life’s process which will ultimately bring you to a place of inner fulfillment.  How do you experience your new found freedom that this aspect is bringing you?  If you listen to your inner self, you will find that excitement and fear almost feel the same, one gives us a sense opening, and the other is limiting!  Choose the experience that opens up your heart.

The vibration that everyone is wondering about this Month is the Venus Retrograde that is transpiring from March 4th to April 15th.  When we work with Venus, we are focusing on two things; our personal values & beliefs (which includes our personal resources and finances) and Love (which includes our relationships and beauty).  Quite often when we think of love we think of other people in our life, or the ones we may desire to have in our life. But the vibration of Love at this time is all around the self.  With Venus retrograding at 13 degrees Aries 08 minutes, we are tapping into a love of the self, the ability to embrace individualization as one blends the two polarized aspects of BEing; the yin and yang, the feminine and masculine.  Typically we embrace that aspect through the ritual of relationship, where man and woman joining together to create a union of souls.  But how can one create that union within the self?  Often we use our relationships as a stimulus or as a mirror, but it is not really about the other person, it is about you and how you manage that dynamic within the self.  For some their relationships might change, alter, or adjust, and for others you will be playing out a dance of where you need to affirm what it is that you truly value and believe in. This Venus retrograde may feel like a test, a test of love within the self, one that is asking you to define “Love” in your life and how you choose to share that with yourself and possibly others.

Look deep into the self and remember what the Beatles told us…  “All you need is love”.  If you are in love with yourself and your life, then your value is reflected there, in that point of LOVE!

The second Jupiter aspect is a little more challenging an it is happening at the end of the month when Venus is Retrograde.  On March 30th, Jupiter square Pluto will challenge your growth process.  Patience and tolerance is required to infuse the change that you desire in your life.  If you feel like you are struggling, then just let go of the struggle, stop trying to roll that big bolder up hill and instead just walk up the hill not pushing anything, but rather enjoy the scenery that is around you.  It is in that enjoyment that the bolder will make its way to where it needs to go and you will find yourself on top of the mountain effortlessly.  Use your inherited wisdom to transform your consciousness to one of plenitude!

Keep in mind that growth is still possible with this aspects, but sometimes when we deal with growth on a spiritual level, it can also seem challenging.  Remember as the butterfly leaves its cocoon, it struggles to free itself, but it is in that struggle that gives it the strength to fly!  Are you ready to fly?!

Inspiration: Healing through Dreams & Synchronicities

Seems like an odd direction for my thought process this month … however as I was preparing for a 21 day healing event with Emmanuel Dagher and Ziad Hashash – where I had to come up with the direction for this healing opportunity – I uncovered a series of what could be seen as unrelated events that I will say were synchronistic guidance from my Divine guidance system that happens to work in very unique ways. It’s like putting together pieces of a puzzle – at least when it comes to me hearing my own guidance. When it comes to offering guidance to others I am much clearer and precise. With me I tend to need many things to convince myself or find the thread that may assist me to be guided in the right direction.

The early morning began with a dream. Typically my dreams are in a helping manner and my reason for going to an event in my dreams is to help someone else. However the two people I went with in my dream in the early morning did not receive the initiation. Instead: I did. In my dream it was with an old teacher who I left because I uncovered that he was working with some very dark energies. However in this dream the initiation was a very powerful one around opening my Goddess connection to Sacred Sexuality and in the dream the old teacher and I began dating. When I awoke from the dream I remember feeling overwhelmed with love and knew something powerful had occurred in the dream time as well as possibly a forgiveness of old hurts. Then I listened to both meditations from Ziad and Emmanuel and something in Ziad’s meditation began the process of trying to understand my current health issue and was supported with Emmanuel’s core work.

Since July of last year, I’ve had some issues with a molar and what I thought would be a simple cavity filling (3rd time for this tooth) turned into a need for a root canal. However the infection never really went away so last Oct I had an infection that began to go septic and even though I did the ‘right’ things – antibiotics and antibiotic care then a series of holistic treatments to support my immune system – the abscess is still present. For some reason I had never looked up the significance of this tooth or asked my body what it needed.

So I finally did some research and found some fascinating information on teeth and root canals. One piece to the puzzle that I found was that this particular tooth was on never fitting in or feeling like an outsider. Now this didn’t become clearer until I began describing it in an interview I was doing with Jean Adrienne later that day. That’s when I realized that for the past couple of years I have been desiring a healthy relationship with someone I could share my life with. Given the dream that morning it clicked in place  that most of the men that I found – or found me – never really ‘got me’ and (wait for it)… unconsciously I felt like I couldn’t fit in. We strong, accomplished, spiritual teachers often intimidate men. So we look for strong men who are not easily intimidated by us to share our lives with.

However such men don’t tend to be in the Spiritual community. And once I find such men and they find out who I am they often get scared away. To me, obviously, I would rather be alone and happy (which I am) than compromise who I am. But there is obviously a belief that I have around relationships and not fitting into the ‘typical’ relationship. It is my belief and my story that creates this dilemma and not actually what is happening. I probably come off too strong in the beginning or don’t open up quick enough because I don’t trust that they will be able to accept who I am and I don’t trust that I am safe with them. So, my infection is confirming my belief that I don’t fit in. And the poor choices that I make show I am not quite as open as I had thought.

However, it doesn’t negate that I am happy the way I am right now. I have a successful home business doing everything I love! I set my own hours. I love where I live and the area I live in. I have the most precious gift in my newest kitten that has allowed me to open up differently. I honor my journey and do everything I can to heal my sacred wounds. I am truly happy. Yet I recognize when I sabotage different areas of my life and know that if I was truly ready and open I would be in a relationship!

My health has transformed over the past couple of years and now I only have a couple of areas that still require my attention – far fewer areas than 2 years ago. I also recognize that when it comes to one’s health you have to be very careful how you focus your attention! If there is pain you can’t heal it if that is where your attention goes. Which brings me back to relationships: if you still have outstanding beliefs (known or unknown) you won’t achieve what you desire most. I continued to put my attention on the areas that weren’t complete.

I am profoundly grateful to uncover an area that was unknown to me consciously which obviously my body was aware of. I recognize that everything works together to collaborate in this amazing journey we call life. I encourage you to challenge yourself to put the puzzle pieces of your life together and to celebrate the missing or broken pieces for those such pieces lead to greater awareness and opportunities of acceptance that allow us to see our wholeness and perfection. We truly are living in incredible times where we can see our Divinity and Wholeness as who we are. And I suspect that after my 21 days of healing I will see some beautiful changes within. Thank you Emmanuel and Ziad in advance for you have already gifted me with so much!

What is Intuitive Counseling?

Many people wonder what Intuitive Counseling or what an Intuitive Counselor is. This question comes up because it isn’t very clearly articulated for the public. There are many people who use Intuitive Counseling for psychic or intuitive readings. Some of my clients want a reading for the purpose of knowing what is coming up and this is a wonderful gift to give yourself every once in a while. However most readings don’t assist you to grow and some readings can even create a self-fulfilling prophecy – which has a lot to do with how much power you give to these readings. And sometimes readings can go ‘off’ if the reader/psychic/intuitive is not so clear around their own triggers and maybe have even failed to work on their own triggers. Continue reading

Feb Newsletter 2017: The Question of Love

Happy Love Month

February is always Love Month on Intuitive Soul and as I pondered what I wanted to write this year, two very important signs came into my awareness. I watched “Arrival” and I prepared for my second interview with Linda Howe. Why are these important? In some ways they don’t have anything to do with love and in other ways they can shift your awareness of love completely. (Read article below)

We have two eclipses this month and Nancy Arruda will discuss below in What’s Up in the Universal Sky. Is anyone else exhausted? Emmanuel Dagher says we will feel a shift soon, I’m hoping to feel “The Spark is Back” soon! I’m also hoping that our Ground Hog will predict an early Spring, although, our winter hasn’t been all that difficult as much as no Sun Shine. I think that is why I’m so exhausted!?

 

 

intuitivesoul-personal-meditationI’m offering a new service of personalized 10 minute meditations that will include a set of wishes that are channeled to inspire you or someone you love for the Holidays or any day! This is a wonderful way to begin or end your day!

My interview for this brand new series is on Feb 10th. Join us for this!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: February 2017

As the saying goes… “All good things must come to an end!” Our several week of, “all planets in direct motion” comes to an end on February 6th as the planet Jupiter which represents,  luck, expansion and growth, stations retrograde at 23 degrees Libra 8 minutes.  I still think that 2017 is going to be much more exciting and rewarding then 2016 was, but the ease and push forward that many have been feeling will somewhat be brought to a halt.  It is time to look inwards to understand the growth process.  This particular retrograde is speaking to an inner transformation, which will have you developing your inner strength.  The transformation that transpires is one of spiritual development as we develop and create a new or stronger connection to our higher self.  Jupiter in Libra does create a strong desire to connect with people on a social level, but as it retrogrades one may feel like withdrawing from this dynamic.  The key is to focus on maintaining balance and peace as you allow yourself to reach into new territories of faith and trust.

This month there will be two eclipses.  Remember, eclipses are all about releasing what no longer serves your inner and outer realties.  We finish up with the final bit of releasing the Karmic Completion energy of 2016 with the Solar Eclipse on February 26 at 8 degrees of Pisces 12 minutes.  Before that happens, we do integrate the release that is necessary with the lessons of 2017 with the Lunar Eclipse at 22 degrees Leo 28 minutes on February 10th.

So we are a little mixed up, clearing the new energy, before clearing the old energy and in some way they are intertwining to bring us the ability of RELEASE before embracing the GIFT!

What is lingering on a Karmic level that you need to finally move forward with letting go of?  That is what the Pisces Solar Eclipse is asking us. Is there anything lingering from 2016 that you need to finally clear from your energy field?  What tasks can you perform now that allow you to walk away from situations or people that no longer serve your highest good?  Ponder that towards the end of the month, I am sure the Universe is going to show you what that is.

But if you recall, before you can even think about clearing that karmic residue of last years lessons, one must really take a look at their creative process.  You should also keep in mind the ego may have some challenges with this.  With the Solar Eclipse, we are looking at things that are stopping us from living life with an open heart.  Our heart chakra is going to poked and prodded as we process what the universe is showing us in regards to NOT living with an open heart.  There are many layers to understanding what is blocking us from living life that is filled with Love and Joy.  So keep your eyes open and keep your heart open, as you venture into the unknown reality of your heart chakra to see how you need to integrate forgiveness.  One can not forgive if one does not acknowledge or accept that forgiveness is a necessary part in the human dynamic of heart centered evolution.  Remember, we are always at choice; the choice here is to accept or not accept the quest the Universe is sending you on.

In the Month of February, start the spring cleaning early.  Let go, release, purge all those things that are stopping you from being in the place you desire at a heart center.  Most of all, tap into the LOVE that is available to everyone and spread the JOY through your open heart!

Inspiration: The Question of Love

In the movie “Arrival” I was completely enthralled with the last question Louise asks Ian: “If you could see the whole story of your life from start to finish would you change things?” Without giving away the movie this is the perfect question for all of us. If you knew your whole life story would you make different choices? Would you live life to the fullest, knowing that things will happen, but we can choose how we want to respond to them? We don’t have to Love differently just because we know that someone will leave or die! We can choose to embrace all the beauty and perfection that exists in this moment.

It made me think: just because someone is going to leave does it mean it was less significant or that it was a failure? We have a tendency to protect our heart believing our heart can be broken. We also tend to create addictions so that we don’t have to feel our discomfort. What if that wasn’t really why we were here? That it isn’t about the love we are able to hold onto but rather the capacity to love. What if everyone in our lives are here to assist us to expand our ability to open our hearts, to Love unconditionally and to know we are loved? This is what we all want anyway, to love and be loved. So why would we love less or feel less loved just because someone leaves? And why do we believe that once they leave we have to throw out everything that reminds us of that relationship?

This pondering led me to my second sign. I was preparing for Linda Howe’s interview about her book “Healing through the Akashic Records: Using the Power of Your Sacred Wounds to Discover Your Soul’s Perfection”. She talks about the purpose of people in our lives triggering our Sacred Wounds and that the role of the offender is to teach us to love unconditionally! Does it get more powerful than that?

So if we can see our whole life from start to finish and we knew about all the relationships in our life and we knew from our Soul’s Purpose it is about learning to love unconditionally would we change anything? Or could we just stop worrying about the length or whether this relationship becomes ‘the one’? Could we just enJOY every moment we have and LOVE?

To me this changes everything. I personally have gotten all caught up in my relationships: from friends to the friends who leave, to my romantic relationships or the lack thereof, to whether once I begin dating thinking of where this will go instead of just enjoying the time I get to spend with them. My ‘Sacred Wound’ is abandonment and although I have learned to stop taking things so personally it is still my Sacred Wound and it is still the primary concern I have when people stop communication with me. I still wonder what have I done wrong. Knowing that my Sacred Wound is really what I have chosen to help me love unconditionally definitely adds a new dimension to my life. Knowing that the friends and lovers in my life are here to help me love unconditionally is a very profound thought! Even the ones who appeared to betray or hurt me are actually still here to show me how to love unconditionally.

Think about the implications of this and the question of love. Love is! Love isn’t attached to a person, place or thing. It is the expression of our Soul. It is the expression of Source. If every encounter and every trigger of our Sacred Wound is really an opportunity to Love unconditionally what would that look like? And would we, could we, change each opportunity if we knew our lives from start to finish? Or is it a matter of how we choose to experience each moment and relationship? In “Arrival” the question was quite a bit more intense however and my questions arose because of how powerful this one question is.

Things will continue to ‘happen’ around us, relationships will come and go, but our capacity to love is unlimited. The question of love isn’t “Will it happen?”; it is “Can I love unconditionally?”

Love month isn’t just about romantic love, friendship or family love, it isn’t about the confusion around self-love, it is: can I love unconditionally? Can I release the need to only love when the right circumstances occur? Can I love knowing that this person can leave or die? Can I love without judgment? Can I look into another’s eyes and see the unconditional love they have within them? Can I know that they are in my life, whether for a long time or short time, to teach me about unconditional love?

I choose to say ‘YES’ but my Sacred Wound is still there and it may always be there but at least now I am knowing that it is there in the first place to help me Love Unconditionally. When can we let go of this need to change, fix, or heal our Sacred Wound and just BE … and loving unconditionally ourselves and others? And enJOYing the ever present moment regardless of how long it will last or whether or not it will hurt us later. I choose to see Love differently now. I choose to see my Sacred Wound differently now. I choose LOVE! How about you?

Dec Newsletter 2016 ~ Holidays and Gratitude

Happy Holidays!

happyholidaysintuitivesoul
I want to wish everyone a Magical Holiday Season!

As some of you are aware my good friend Jean Adrienne had a near-death experience that came from a life altering accident. From this experience she learned detachment and Gratitude. This is why my message this Holiday Season is about Capturing the Christmas Spirit In the Magic of the Holidays! Gratitude is all about connecting into the Spirit of the Holidays, the innocence of our childhood and BEing Open to the Miracles in our lives (big or small). I am Grateful for all of  YOU!

This is a big month astrologically speaking, Nancy Arruda and I discussed the events in our last show, the one I want to draw attention to is Mercury Retrograde as it will impact your Christmas Shopping and New Years Eve plans. Ensure you double check anything electronically done as Mercury is the trickster with anything electronic! More below.

intuitivesoul-personal-meditationI’m offering a new service of personalized 10 minute meditations that will include a set of wishes that are channeled to inspire you or someone you love for the Holidays or any day! This is a wonderful way to begin or end your day!

Our book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored has been released. It looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Purchase your book today! For the coming months, I will be doing a series of interviews on the book, see Facebook for updates. It would make A wonderful Christmas Gift. Buy Yours Today!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:

December, a time to connect with family as we embrace the spirit of giving and enjoy the festivities!

This particular December is packed full with astrological activity.  Such as; Chiron stationing direct on December 1st, allowing all of us to embrace their healing journey with HOPE!  Hope that comes from a place of innocence which stimulates feelings of warmth at the heart center.

The Full Moon in Gemini on December 3rd allows you to acknowledge the changes within your creative imagination.  I am mentioning the Full Moon in Gemini because Gemini’s ruling planet, Mercury will be stationing retrograde on December 19th.  (It will be retrograde until January 8th, 2017).  This retrograde cycle is asking everyone to PLAY MORE, to be ACTIVE and see where your creative vs logical thoughts require a re-alignment.  The pre shadow starts on December 1st and the post shadow last until Jan 27.  So be aware of miscommunications.  If you notice, you are wrong, then make sure that you can correct yourself according!  Saying “sorry” can go a long way!

Saturn in Sagittarius will trine Uranus in Aries  on December 24th allowing individuals to infuse taking responsibility with any new and exciting projects or concepts.  This aspect allows for a breakthrough in your life as you explore new interests that arise.  This aspect will return again on May 19th and November 11, 2017.

Changes are necessary when Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries on December 26th.  The change can be sudden and dramatic or it can simply be a break in your routine.  With the activation of this Aries / Libra polarity relationships are highlighted.  If you are noticing a breakdown in your relationships, career or way of life, then take some time to ponder on what you desire to create a new.  Do not hold onto the old way of being, but rather, embrace the change the universe is imposing upon you.  This aspect will return again on March 2 and September 28th, 2017 .

Saturn in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces on December 28 activates the need to let go of emotional patterns which holds back your true self.  Know that this is a sensitive time, and it is best to use this time with introspection.  Take some time to ponder on the past.  You will have the opportunity to expand your understanding of the past, so that you can move forward with wisdom and new insight into what you need to heal on a spiritual level (which can vibrate down into the mental, emotional, and physical layers of BEing).  This aspect returns again on April 30 and November 2, 2017.

We close the year with the New Moon in Capricorn on December 29th, as well as, Uranus stationing Direct on that day a few hours after the New Moon.   The New Moon offers the perfect setting for setting your intentions for 2017!  With mercury currently retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, keep your intentions some what open to change.  Focus on what you desire to build in your life!  Focus on the foundation in which you desire to build upon.  Be open to changes transpiring within these intentions as Uranus is activating the surge of the unpredictable into your formula.  There is interplay of yin and yang taking place and the desire is to have both sides of the energy find an appropriate balance.  Non-action vs action.  Introspection vs sharing your ideas or growth,  power vs force!  Victory happens when balance is attained.  Enjoy the remainder of 2016!

Inspiration: Holidays and Gratitude!

id-100305064As we come into the Holiday Season, which is always a Magical time for me, I want to offer a way for us all to BE Grateful for all that we have.

October was a very challenging month for me and November allowed me to uncover new ways and new perspectives to come into alignment with my Health and Well-Being. I am feeling better than I have in years and my energy and health have improved significantly. What changed? Well despite two mega doses of antibiotics and some natural health supplements to super charge my immune system perhaps what changed is that we are in the end of the nine year cycle (As previously discussed, 2016 is a 9 year in numerology and after Sept 9th [9-9-9] to Jan 1st, 2017 [1-1-1] when we begin a new cycle we will be releasing a lot of ‘things’ that are no longer necessary in our lives; from people to beliefs.) and I believe that cycle is what has been holding me in a certain pattern that is finally ready to be released. And in this ‘feeling good’ phase of my life I now feel like I have outgrown the limiting aspect of this cycle!

So, I have a lot to be Grateful for!

I came across this beautiful interview with Buddhist Monk Phap Dung in response to the question about what people can do who are feeling very fearful and uncertain about America and the planet. His response was beautifully worded! [For the full interview go here… http://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2016/11/22/13638374/buddhist-monk-mindfulness.]

“We see the mind like a house, so if your house is on fire, you need to take care of the fire, not to go look for the person that made the fire. Take care of those emotions first; it’s the priority. Because anything that comes from a place of fear and anxiety and anger will only make the fire worse. Come back and find a place of calm and peace to cool the flame of emotion down.”

 I felt this quote was especially pertinent to all that is going on this last month and how we can take time this Holiday Season to take care of Our House and not project our fears, anxiety and anger onto our friends and family. The holidays can be particularly stressful for many people and emotions come up. And these emotions come up for us during the Holidays are often triggered by something related to what occurred during the first seven years of our lives. With the added anxieties that many are experiencing – especially in this season – we have an opportunity to ‘Remember the Magic’ and be in charge of how we want to BE and how we want to respond instead of directing the fire outside of us!

Taking responsibility for our reactions and emotional fears is something that isn’t always easy and is something that we would rather blame on someone else. These reactions and fears are the triggers that our egos would rather not deal with nor take responsibility for. Holidays often dredge up some of our worst fears and reactions – our disappointments, feeling alone, feeling unsupported, sensing unexpressed anger and sadness – that we often don’t acknowledge as they lie deep below the surface of our unconscious until triggered. Our families often take the brunt of these reactions.

However, this time of the year has another energy available to us. It is the Magical Beauty of Giving and Loving, the True Spirit of Christmas. I like to remind my listeners and readers every year that the Magic of the Holiday season is beautifully powerful. It exists because of the underlying energy available around unconditional giving and sharing. It exists because of the saying that is so prevalent everywhere: “Peace on Earth and Good Will towards Men”. I prefer to believe the use of ‘Men’ is a general statement that doesn’t reflect which gender we are and that this statement offers a Blessing for everyone. This Blessing forwards a prayer into the world that is sacred to those we love as well as to the planet and reflects an energy that we can tap into.

Gratitude and the Magic of the Holidays are similar energies that we can tap into if we remember and uncover the child-like innocence of our youth. When we can find the ‘gift’ in all our experiences and the Higher Purpose that is always present – or accept that there is a ‘higher purpose’ even when we can’t see it – we can tap into Gratitude and further the Magical energy of Unconditional Love and Sharing in the Holiday Season. When we can tap into the child-like exuberance of the innocence of our youth before love became conditional we experience similar energies.

To me it is about finding your inspiration. I’m often inspired by magical movies like Harry Potter (the first three movies before the series became darker), Fantastic Beasts, and Christmas themed movies (any time of the year). I’m equally inspired by the magical remembrance of a first kiss and falling in love or the love of a pet. Pets to me are very special. If you have never experienced the unconditional love of a pet before I would recommend it.

I encourage you to find your inspiration and Remember the Magic of the Holidays while BEing Grateful for all that is YOU. And remember that you can Share Unconditionally this Love and Gratitude from within to all that is outside you.

I wish you all the Happiest Holiday Season, full of Magic and Gratitude!

Nov Newsletter 2016 ~ Resistance to Letting GO

Happy Fall and American Thanksgiving!

fall2016October has been a challenging (interesting) month. With the passing of my heart, then getting a terrible infection/flu and fraudulent charges to a credit card, resistance has been showing up in my life BIG TIME! Plus, Halloween is the year anniversary of my brother passing away. I guess I should have expected something to come up because I explored the topic of resistance last month.

But the leaves are finally changing, although I’m still not sure we’ve actually had our first frost yet. We’ve had the warmest month of October as well as summer season in history. I’m not eager for the return of winter, and with all the challenges I’ve had this past month, I’m still enjoying this gorgeous fall!

Our most interesting transit this month seems to be with Neptune and our North Node, which Nancy Arruda shares that it is about “Soul Alignment”. It seems we are being pushed into Letting Go as we end this 9 year cycle and head into a 1 year with 2017. I guess that means I’m on track with all the personal work I have been doing.

Our new book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored has been released. It looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Purchase your book today! For anyone who purchases our book and writes a review on Amazon, you will receive a free month of  our Heart-Centered Support Group! For the coming months, I will be doing a series of interviews on the book, see Facebook for updates.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
There may be an abundance of confusion as we enter into the month of November.  On November 3rd Neptune in Pisces will oppose the North node in Virgo (which also means he will be conjunct the South Node in Pisces).  That in itself may sound confusing, but let me try to clarify.

Neptune resides of the realm of Soul.  He is connected to the depths of the Ocean, the place that is connected to the depths of the unconscious mind.  It is here that we store our Souls lessons, those concepts that we are working thought in this lifetime that may be difficult to rationalize or even realize.  At 10 degrees of Pisces, we are learning and integrating “mastery”.  Can you define what you are trying to master in life?  Not just now, but in the whole picture of your purpose on earth.  At  10 degrees of Virgo we are focusing on “self transcending the activity of the mind”. Can you see how the duality of this reality is keeping you stuck in duality?

When we look at the energies separately, we may have some awareness into what is transpiring.  How the mind can limit our Soul on the path that it is on.  How can we master this energy?  How can we utilize the power of the Soul to overcome the lessons we are learning?  I don’t really have an answer to those questions, but those are the questions you need to ask yourself.

As our Soul pushes us forward on a path that we are not certain of, one can expect some time of inner conflict.  It is difficult to master what one is not aware of, but we must focus on the learning our Soul desires.  We must develop skills that assist us with transcending the natural limitations of the mental and spiritual realms.  Have you ever noticed how you attract your thoughts?  Have you even noticed how your thoughts create your current reality?  Open up the mind and rise above its need to distract you through the overactive mental energy tat is taking place.  Pull in some spiritual vibrations, like trust, faith and hope to integrate into your experience both on a mental and emotional level.  Sure, one can think they have hope or faith, but in truth, you must also feel those aspects integrating into the core of who you are.

Allow the creative thoughts that are aligned with higher vibrations of joy and love to infuse into your cellular structure and if you do, confusion will lift and clarity will become a natural state of your BEing.

Try to avoid escaping or the use of behaviours that have you desiring not to connect with your highest Soul Self.  Instead, look at what is transpiring within your mind and body, for those are connected to the lessons of the Soul.

Soul alignment is taking place right now, and it is the type of thing that you may think you can connect to on an intellectual or analytical level, but in truth, you can not.  You can only practically apply the desire to rise above the limitations you may be feeling and integrate the vibrations of the light into who you are.

The desired outcome is wholeness, ONEness and a connection to the Divine that allows you to see, feel and think with the up most clarity.

Inspiration: Resistance to Letting GO

id-100133534So, as resistance continued to present itself I came across a book (first the audio book and then I purchased the e-book) of one of my favorite teachers, David Hawkins, called “Letting Go: the Pathway to Surrender”. I’m not sure if this is the last book he wrote before he passed because some of it felt old and out of date and the rest of it was critical to what I needed. Currently Hay House has this e-book for only $1.99 until Nov 7th both US and CAD; a wise investment.

I realized that the process of Letting Go is not a new concept as I have read books on a similar theme including “Busting Loose from the Money Game” by Robert Scheinfeld (Wiley 2006), and I have written extensively on this theme in my blogs during a time when I knew I needed to Let Go. However, when it comes to the Resistance I have been experiencing this month I knew how important a process it was going to be. In fact, David Hawkins believes that the process of Letting Go leads to enlightenment and raising our map of consciousness to that of Peace (1st stage of enlightenment calibrates at 600. To know more about David Hawkins Scale of Consciousness go here).

So, what was I resisting? It seemed that my theme of resistance created a clear path to areas in my life that I haven’t been conscious of. My health concerns, which I have been working on for the past few years, seemed to get amplified by a fever of 102 which, considering I usually run a bit cooler than average, felt all encompassing. However, instead of shifting to acceptance and allowing so that I could “Let Go”, I began focusing on the pain and figuring out where it was coming from and why it was so debilitating. My focus was on resisting it! I wasn’t seeing the Divine in any of it. I was resisting getting medical attention because I dislike antibiotics and felt it was viral. Although part of it may have begun as a viral infection another part of me knew that it was a tooth infection that was going septic through my blood. The pain continued to get worse and if I closed my eyes to see where the pain stemmed from it was coming from my tooth.

Then the question of why I wasn’t healing viral and bacterial infections arose. Several years ago I was working with someone who kept telling me how sick I was and I just couldn’t create a healing energy to fight these numerous different ailments. And therein lied the problem: we try and ‘fight’ illness. We “Resist” illness!

I knew the answer lied in “Letting GO”!

But what is Letting GO? It comes from the acceptance of the Divine within us. It comes from remembering “Who we are”; from moving into the NOW moment and shinning the Essence of “Who we are” through us. It is from acknowledging that thoughts are caused by repressed or suppressed feelings and that these repressed or suppressed feelings are creating illness within our bodies. We surrender a feeling by allowing it to be there without condemning, judging or “Resisting” it. We also need to “Let Go” or “surrender to” the underlying payoff of that which makes us ill (such as accepting our own victimization or even accepting energy from others that acknowledges us as being victims).

Feelings aren’t the Real Self; the Real Self, the Inner Self, always remains the same and is our “True Essence”, our Divine Nature. When we remember “Who we are” we can “Let GO” from the higher perspective of our Real Self. However sometimes we need to feel our feelings instead of continuously distracting ourselves because we are uncomfortable. Feeling is the only way to release the energy underneath our ‘resistance’ because if we don’t know what we are feeling we probably don’t even know that we are repressing or suppressing and resisting in the first place.

The thing is: I think we all are aware of the areas we are resisting. They are the areas that aren’t flowing in our lives. I just chose to see all of my resistances within these six weeks because I began looking at resistance as a theme. And what we look at grows!

I guess I chose mid September and October to become aware of what I needed to see in my life so that I could truly move forward and walk my talk. I’ve been choosing to evolve my consciousness towards love and transcend areas that I’ve been avoiding in my life even when I thought I was ‘seeing’ them.

As I write this my infection continues because there is an emotion that I’m not “Letting Go” of and that emotion maintains dis-ease even with the extra strength antibiotics I am on and I think this is because I’m requesting to fully embrace “letting go” and I know when that will be complete: when either I accept what is happening to me or I fully ‘let go’ of whatever has it’s grasp, presently, on my physical body.

I am choosing to “Let GO” and I know that this process will happen as long as I stop distracting myself with what is “happening” and accept and “Let Go and Let GOD” into the part of me that knows my Divine Spark and Remembers Who I AM!

Resistance to Letting Go

id-100133534This has been a challenging (interesting) month. With the passing of my heart, then getting a terrible infection/flu and fraudulent charges to a credit card, resistance has been showing up in my life BIG TIME! Plus, Halloween is the year anniversary of my brother passing away. I guess I should have expected something to come up because I explored the topic of resistance last month.

So, as resistance continued to present itself I came across a book (first the audio book and then I purchased the e-book) of one of my favorite teachers, David Hawkins, called “Letting Go: the Pathway to Surrender”. I’m not sure if this is the last book he wrote before he passed because some of it felt old and out of date and the rest of it was critical to what I needed.

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on our Resistance to our Fears.

tomcampbellLaurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on our Reality. This is a deep conversation about how we resist our fears. It is always about Choice, however our fears are often unconscious. We discuss that Tom’s work on News for the Heart is how to apply his theories. We talk about how we often are concerned about our symptoms and not the cause of the problem. We tend to focus on the goal, where life is a process. Generally, we are focused, and our intent is looking at what is wrong and how to fix, change and manipulate the situation. We focus on what to do, vs how we can BE and who we are from a BEing level. The whole point of this physical reality is to make choices and to evolve the quality of our consciousness towards love through making ‘loving & caring decisions’; choices about others not just yourself. We have to own our problems, take responsibility for our choices and own our triggers. However, this process isn’t easy and it takes a level of courage to deeply make changes from this BEing level. We have to want to stop being a victim, blaming others or our situations on something outside ourselves and take full responsibility. To authentically look at how our fears continue to add to our story and keep us from evolving in a loving inner BEingness. We shared that when we are focused on our fears, our story, it is all about ME and our Ego; it’s all about YOU! And that’s the problem, as long as you stay unconscious of your fears, you will continue to choose your fears. However, if you can become conscious of your choices you will get an opportunity to make another choice, one of Love! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
We finish the month of September with a New Moon that takes place in the sign of Libra.  Keep in mind The Sun is in this sign as we begin the month of October.  Libra’s vibration is all about love, harmony, unity and peace.  It is important to remember that this is the energy of this month until the Sun moves into the sign of Scorpio on October 22nd.

If you were lucky, you will have the opportunity to discover what is blocking you from attaining peace.  I am not necessarily saying this has anything to do with fortunate outcomes.  But rather, if you were lucky, you could see or discover what is keeping you in a place of unfulfillment, a place of lacking peace, unity and love.  Perhaps the universe showed you something that you did not think was holding you back.  You would not necessarily view that as luck on a superficial level.  But if you use this awareness as an opportunity to heal, to access the love you desire for yourself, then you are ahead of the game.  That is the luck that I am speaking of.

With Jupiter in Libra all year, we are looking to find that balance within the self.  That place of peace.  In order to understand why it is not in your life, you may be given the opportunity to find what is keeping it hidden.  Once you discover it, patience sets in.  You will find you are no longer in a hurry to make things happen, but instead you allow things to happen with ease and grace.

If you are not going through a discovery process now, then the Full Moon in Aries will also aid in the potential of this discovery. It takes place on October 16th, 2016 at 12:23 AM EST.  Keep in mind the discovery process may also be two fold, with awareness that is happening now, and again on the Full Moon.
Once the Sun shifts into the sign of Scorpio, the transformation begins.  The new aspects of self begin to merge into your BEing.  Where you will have the opportunity to sit in stillness, with the New Moon in Scorpio on October 30th!

Allow the transformation that is happening to be conscious.  Don’t hold onto illusions that no longer serve, instead embrace your path and BE in alignment with the Unity of the Universe!

Inspiration: Resistance blocks JOY!

playingThis month a series of events allowed me to become aware when I was in resistance and therefore blocking the flow of universal love and joy. I participated in Emmanuel Dagher’s Core Attunements that discussed Evolved Wealth where he discussed service and tithing, which brought up some resistance and resistance was the purpose of the meditation. I had to observe what was being triggered, which was partially caused by my understanding of the biblical implications of ‘tithing’ and also my fear around not being open to this offering of love. I wasn’t really clear what ‘tithing’ meant to me. However, Emmanuel clarified that our giving of time is also tithing and that prior to us accepting financial compensation our time was and still is an acceptable form of tithing. However I had resistance to this. I knew how I freely offered my time but did I openly offer a percentage of my time and/or money to service the world? Do I have an expectation of personal gain when I write my blogs or offer my radio/YouTube interviews? Or do I do this as well as other services to unconditionally ‘gift’ the world and make it a better place?

The other resistance that came up for me was around abandonment. This past 10 days my boy Jasper got frightened over a raccoon that, to Jasper, threatened his territory. Cats are extremely territorial! It took too long to get this raccoon out of the house: 30 minutes of screaming and using a broom handle to scare the unscarable (not a pretty sigh). This created a huge amount of anxiety – of which I had never seen – in my beautiful, loving boy Jasper. He no longer felt safe in his own home. And when he wasn’t coming home to sleep, it triggered my abandonment issues. I kept focusing on the pain of Jasper not coming home and taking it personally. I was in resistance again.

So these two unnerving experiences – around tithing and abandonment – allowed me to be open to a new book being released by Gabby BernsteinThe Universe Has Your Back!´ as well as Gabby’s videoThe Art of Manifesting: 5 Secrets to Attracting What You Want Video Workshop. Combined with Emmanuel’s meditations I was able to begin to see some important pieces to how I fall into resistance and block what the universe is waiting to offer. The 2nd experience was far more important to me as I was observing a core belief: abandonment. Abandonment, as most of you know, is something I have been working on all my life. What I had to realize was regardless of what was happening to Jasper it did not have anything to do with him abandoning me. However, my focus on how I was feeling and the emptiness that it was reflecting or the pain of abandonment, it was that feeling that was keeping me in resistance to being open to shifting my focus on what I wanted.

The problem for most of us is that we have a goal and instead of keeping our vibration on what we want – so that the Universal Flow of love, joy, peace or consciousness can bring around this possibility – we instead focus on the lack, the opposite of what we want or the absence of what we want. As soon as we even say what we ‘want’ we are often already thinking of it because of what we don’t want! We want to lose weight, but we continually focus on the weight we want to lose, measuring and weighing ourselves instead of having a clear picture of what we want and not worrying about how it comes about. We want financial security but we worry about our bills. We want health and well-being but we focus on the pain or on what isn’t working. Do you see the flaw there? The Universal flow of Love, Joy and Well-being exist at all times and we receive exactly what we are asking for at any given time. However, what we are asking for is usually the opposite of what we want.

If you are experiencing anything you don’t want it won’t change unless you shift your focus from that to allowing and receiving this flow of Love, Joy and Well-being.

I knew Jasper was teaching me a very important lesson and I couldn’t easily allow him to make his own choices if I was stuck in thinking this was about me being abandoned. He couldn’t heal his safety issues if I was stuck in my own. He needed space to heal but I could only focus on the pain I was experiencing. Just like the fear of believing I wasn’t making a difference by unconditionally serving and tithing.

When our fears get triggered we fall back into patterns that keep everything stuck. I knew these were my issues and that if I couldn’t shift out of them I would continue the patterns.

Unfortunately, I completely believed that Jasper was fully on the road to recovery, only to discover that he had far serious conditions. I dedicated a blog to Jasper, which you can read here. I only hope that I have the strength to remember the love he shared with me over these years as a true blessing and not get triggered by my abandonment issues.

So, how do we open ourselves to the resistance so we can shift back into the Infinite Flow of Love, Joy and Well-being? We have to move out of linear time. We have to shift into the Now moment where we aren’t focused on our past triggers or our worries about the future. The Now moment will allow us to connect with our Divine Spark, our True Essence of BEing. Our truth lies within us and we can choose – when we are consciously in the Now moment – whether we want Fear or Love! It’s only when we are in the ever present moment that we can even observe what we are feeling instead of being lost in our minds, lost in either the past or the future. Once we are aware we can then make a choice. We can step out of our pain and fear and overcome our resistance as we step into our true essence with the power to receive LOVE and to know JOY!

Sept Newsletter 2016 ~ Intimacy (Into-me-see)!

Happy Fall Equinox

RoC1 The fall although exciting and probably my most favorite season, always makes me a little sad as it means the end of long days and warm nights. However, this summer has been so hot, I look forward to some cooler evenings.  I still expect a few weeks of swimming left and feel so blessed that I have access to one of the worlds greatest commodities, a pristine Great Lake and sandy beach only a 3 minute walk from my home (having the prestigious Blue Flag award since 2005).

I decided to ensure this newsletter would be completed before Mercury goes Retrograde tomorrow, so there wouldn’t be any delays or snags. Even if we are in between 3 sets of Eclipses (although there seems to be a controversy as to whether the Aug Eclipse on the 18th was an eclipise or not?). I caution everyone to back up their electronics and not sign any contracts till near end of the month when Mercury stations direct on Sept 22nd.

Our new book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored has been released. It looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Purchase your book today! For anyone who purchases our book and writes a review on Amazon, you will receive a free month of  our Heart-Centered Support Group!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
September is a busy astrological month. Keep in mind that we start this month with Mercury in Retrograde (August 30). With Mercury Retrograde in the sign of Virgo we are being asked to overcome the illusions of the mind.

In fact, the mind is in overdrive with healing energy this month, especially with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in the sign of Virgo taking place on September 1st at 5:03 am EDT. With Virgos natural ruler, Mercury in retrograde and the Solar Eclipse in Virgo we continue to look at our thought process. How can you transcend beyond the mind? The Solar Eclipse is not only activating your mind, but also your body. Where can you begin to focus on BEing healthier? Can you see what you need to eliminate in your lifestyle that is holding you back from wellness? When the body and mind align, great things can and will happen.

Jupiter makes it annual shift into the sign of Libra on September 9th. Growth happens through relating. The formation and maintenance of all types of relationships is highlighted. Are you ready to encounter people in new ways?

The last Saturn square Neptune hit takes place on September 10th (Nov 25, 2015 & June 10, 2016 were the first two hits). Although we are still in the midst of this energy for a while, as we have been feeling the integration of it since November 25th of last year, it is time to make life as simple as possible. This aspect stimulated feelings of anxiety, worry, insecurity, disorientation, disappointment, discouragement and confusion. Typically when we experience these, we get lost in the emotion and that may consume you. Obstacles happen when you try to control something that you have no control over. If you are not sure of your current responsibilities, take some time detaching from them. I am not saying, do not take any responsibility, but rather withdrawal for a while and process what you are feeling at a deep level. This aspect really effects the mind and the power that it has over us. Remember if you can handle your mind, you can handle reality.

The pairing Lunar Eclipse transpires on September 16th at 3:05 pm EDT. This Lunar Eclipse in Pisces is activating a deep purification process. It is time to purge away our conscious attention on negative results. We are a society that focuses on the negative, just watch the news. Some people call it reality, however, it is simply a perspective of reality. How can you alter your perspective of reality so that you can align with something greater? To find the answer to that question, try connecting with your Souls essence. It is in this connection that you will purge the emptiness and the ego’s need to rationalize.

Mercury will station direct removing us from the retrograde cycle on September 22nd. How can you apply the gift of knowledge to accomplish the tasks that are at hand? Utilize the courage that is within you as you tap into the disciplinary natures that support your journey towards growth (speaking of growth, remember, Jupiter is in Libra, so you may find it happens through relating or communicating with others).

Pluto will station direct on September 26th at 14 degrees of Capricorn. As Pluto stations direct, can you see how you have been transforming what was stopping you from living freely? Look forward to an increase of BEing in a relaxed state. Free the mind from what is non-essential as you determine the value of what you need to hold onto.

Any restrictions you may feel on the physical plane assist with learning at a higher level. As Saturn squares the North Node (in Virgo) we look for the truth. The Karmic teacher is enforcing lessons on the physical plane.

This month is all about the mind, healing and releasing that which is keeping you stuck in a pattern that no longer serves your Higher Self. The path to your Soul is awakening within the self … are you ready to walk your talk? Are you ready to be internally free?

Inspiration: Intimacy (Into-me-see)

ID-100399034Usually when I think of fall, especially at the beginning of Sept, I think about new beginnings, learning and change. This year my thinking seems to be on Intimacy. I mentioned last month I’m participating in Emmanuel Dagher’s “Core Healing” and this past week the theme was on Divine Partners. The topic of intimacy came up and I believe due to the fact that today Venus enters Libra and Jupiter is transiting into Libra early this month (Sept 9th) the focus for many of us will be on relationships this fall and for the next year (romantic, friends and colleagues) as Jupiter will be in Libra till Oct 2017.

I love the word “Intimacy” as it brings up a series of thoughts and ideas; it is about ‘seeing me’. Do you remember the movie Avatar? The beautiful piece of that movie was their deep understanding of ‘seeing someone’ as they are; their inner essence. When it comes to creating intimacy with others, romantic and otherwise, we need to start with ourselves.

Intimacy is the ability to truly be seen, which many of us crave. To be acknowledged, accepted, heard, seen, appreciated etc. are all words that we use to describe what we seek from a deep place within.

However, I believe intimacy is also our deepest fear. We spend most of our time focused outside of ourselves, worrying about what others think about us. We spend a great deal of time trying to make others see us, but ultimately we worry about what they see. We focus on their perceptions, their beliefs, what they may or may not be saying about us and we get upset when we think we aren’t being seen and when others think unkindly of us. The irony of this is that it is none of our business. Truly the only thing that matters is not what others think of us but what we feel deep within us and whether we remember our inner essence of our Soul. We will never know what others think or feel nor will we know what they are being triggered over when it ‘appears’ that they are upset with us. And we can’t worry about that; because it is not within our control. The only thing we are in charge of is how we feel within us. The thing with this is we often are so focused outside that we don’t remember it is a choice how we feel inside.

What does this have to do with Intimacy (into-me-see) and our deepest fear of being seen? You may be wondering. Here is what I’m thinking: the more we focus outside, the more unconscious we are of our ‘discomforts’ or how we are feeling. We have become unconscious of our fears.

These fears of ‘intimacy’ come early in our lives – as soon as love becomes conditional. Once love becomes conditional – we worry about whether we meet the conditions of being loved and lovable. These fears also come from the collective unconscious where women were persecuted for stepping into their power and BEing seen. We have all had countless lives were being “seen” meant death, literally. Ultimately, we don’t feel safe BEing seen. And if this is the case, even though we desire on a deep level to BE seen by another, we fear it even more unconsciously (or consciously in some cases).

This is why ‘intimacy’ must start within first. Remember my post “What would you do… if you Loved Yourself?”? It was retraining you to consider how you would act, respond, and BE in the world knowing you loved yourself. If we desire others to ‘into-me-see’, then we must also see our true essence; the wholeness within us that will never change.

Yet we do many things to sabotage ourselves from BEing and remembering our true Self. Addictions, health issues, weight issues and focusing outside ourselves are all ways we sabotage our growth and hinder our remembering that we are already whole and complete. We even hope that a relationship will complete us!

So, how do we shift and BEgin to sincerely See Who we have always been from a place of Wholeness? How do we shift our thoughts from outside to our Inner Essence of BEing?

Ultimately, it becomes a choice. We often believe we have no choice; that things happen and we are constantly dealing with the outcomes of life. However, within us lies a strength that is infinite! Although everyone is different my belief is that this power exists within the Heart where there is a Divine Spark that reflects the ‘oneness’ of Source. It is perfect and Whole as is. We confuse this wholeness by accessing our ‘human’ fears, relying on the mind for everything, and focusing outside ourselves on past and future time lines.

But this Divine BEing that is you is always present and you can access it in many ways. It is the Observer of your life. It can only be accessed within the Now moment. And it is Infinite!

Find your way to access this Infinite Source of You and radiate it outward from the inside. This will allow you to BE seen and to have Intimacy with others because you will BE seen within first. If you are like most of us and desire to finally be ‘seen’ and develop Intimacy (into-me-see) with another in your life then take the time to SEE yourself first. Truly get acquainted with the beauty that exists within you. Face your fears, open your heart and remember you are already Whole.
