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!

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on Conscious Evolution

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Ego, Growth, Consciousness, Intention and Control. This deep conversation began with an experience I had that Tom and I often discuss around Me versus Other. Learning how to detach ourselves and give space for the other to BE allows us to shift our triggers and BEcome more conscious in our lives. This also allows us an opportunity to detach from our emotions that are only perceived by our story. We also discussed 3 questions from our listeners, 1. on Intention and Control and how they are confusing, especially if we bring Law of Attraction into our intentions. Intention that is from a place of BEing instead of end goal is the way we can maintain letting go of our control over our lives and allow what is happening to BE. 2nd question was around crying and ego and whether this is helping us grow. Being authentic is important and although crying is for each person’s ego, it doesn’t hinder our growth unless it moves into suffering. And the 3rd question was around energy and clothes which will continue next month as it brought up a great deal of information around Intention and our tools to assist us in our growing. We discussed how the differences between energy, data and tools we use will assist us in our growing towards love. Join us for this important discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

News for the Heart: Laurie Huston talks with Dr’s Ron & Mary Hulnick: Remembering the Light Within

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with authors & Dr’s Ron and Mary Hulnick on their New book: Remembering the Light Within: A Course in Soul-Centered Living. Their book affirms that we all suffer from greater or lesser degrees of “Spiritual amnesia.”  We’ve forgotten who we are and why we’re here.  The process of Remembering is an active process through which step-by-step you remove or dissolve the barriers within your consciousness that are all that prevent you from knowing your Soul’s nature-from experientially knowing that you are a Divine Being having a human experience.  Can you imagine walking through this world in a consciousness that is Awake to Love?  Wouldn’t that be Amazing Grace? Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

 

Remembering the Light Within (Hay House, February 21, 2017)  comes forth from Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick, Founding Faculty and Co-Directors of the University of Santa Monica, the Worldwide Center for the Study and Practice of Spiritual Psychology.
Their book affirms that we all suffer from greater or lesser degrees of “Spiritual amnesia.”  We’ve forgotten who we are and why we’re here.  The process of Remembering is an active process through which step-by-step you remove or dissolve the barriers within your consciousness that are all that prevent you from knowing your Soul’s nature-from experientially knowing that you are a Divine Being having a human experience.  Can you imagine walking through this world in a consciousness that is Awake to Love?  Wouldn’t that be Amazing Grace?
“We are thrilled to share these life-changing Soul-Centered Living-and-Remembering-Who-You-Are teachings with you at this important time in human history.  For a deeper experience, we recommend reading one chapter at a time and then engaging with the Practices and Intention at the end of the chapter for a week or two before moving on to the next chapter, ” says Ron Hulnick.
Mary Hulnick adds, “The Practices are not things you do once or twice and then move on.  They are empowering, transformational, and when utilized over time, become integrated as a Way of Being and a Way of Life. In your Soul, you are already Awake to the Love that you are.  This book is intended as both inspiration and support for Awakening into that Awareness and living a Soul-Centered life – an inspired life of Love, meaning and purpose.”
Remembering the Light Within is filled with remedies for Spiritual amnesia including Spiritual Wisdom and practices supported by the time tested Principles of Spiritual Psychology.
A few of the essential concepts covered in this book include:
  • Discovering what it means to enter the Spiritual Context
  • Learning the difference between the ego and the Authentic Self
  • Recognizing the distinction between Goal Line and Soul Line opportunities accelerating Spiritual Awakening through using the scientific method
  • Reframing unresolved issues as Blessings
  • Communing with the Divine through prayer
  • Finding Freedom through Compassionate Self-Forgiveness
The authors also share from their own experience the power of the material to support readers in “Hitting a Spiritual Homerun” and learning how to use “Spiritual Crampons.” Radical, liberating shifts in perception await!

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

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.

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.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
WE start the Month of August with the theme of playfulness with the New Moon in the sign of Leo on August 2nd. New Moons are about new beginnings, and this particular new moon is asking all of us to tap into our self expression. How can you BE more spontaneous? Allow yourself the ability to tap into child like innocence.

Its corresponding Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse which takes place in the sign of Aquarius on August 18th. Lunar eclipses are all about letting go and clearing away what no longer serves. As we have been on a journey of acknowledging the truth the last few months, this lunar eclipse will continue to assist one on that journey as we continue to release the illusions or untruth. We are focusing on the logical path using mental efficiency. The clearing is that of illusions, as we are still feeling the confusion and disillusionment of Saturn square Neptune (which has its final hit in September). Managing relationships and free flowing information through observation and analysis is a key component to this lunar eclipse. Remember if you are finding yourself in the illusion of reality, it is the mind that can steer you in the right direction now. Use the mind wisely and be aware of your thoughts!

Before we experience the lunar Eclipse, Saturn will station direct on August 13th. Saturn stationed retrograde on March 25th. Since then it was showing everyone what you were dependent on, and as it retrograded, those dependencies may have gotten taken away from you. As it stations direct you are being forced to grow in ways that may not be comfortable, however it will add to the foundation of whatever you are building in life. This may feel a little difficult for some people as the karmic planet is asking you to move into aspects of the self that may seem a little challenging. Did you remember me saying something about playfulness earlier? How about more of that? That is what is needed in order to lessen the strain of the seriousness of Saturn.

Try to infuse as much light heartedness as possible this month, the Sun in Leo makes that possible. As we move towards the end of the month the analytical mind kicks into high gear, especially once the Sun moves into the sign of Virgo on August 22nd. The exhaustion and confusion continues, so don’t try to control that in any way, just trust that the path will become clear when you are ready to walk upon it.

We end the month with Mercury stationing retrograde on August 30th in the sign of Virgo. This particular retrograde is speaking to the conquest of illusion. Yes, we are moving through what is false in order to determine what is real or truth. Get ready to embark upon a healing journey: one that allows us to heal the mind as we are now able to identify and focus on that which is necessary. As the illusions are being shown to you, acknowledge them with gratitude and the awareness that you are now given the concentration necessary for reaching a great spiritual goal!

Inspiration: Healing is Remembering You are Whole!

ID-100328116As most of you know by now I look for my inspiration from my life. I dedicate my work to Growing and Evolving towards Love within myself first! So, when I connect with someone or a class I feel inspired to take, I will. This month Emmanuel Dagher is promoting his Core Attunements work that begins Sunday August 14th for 5 weeks. If you sign up by August 10th you receive “A Clear Path to Healing” attunement that I have received and that is the inspiration for this Blog! It is packed full of incredible information on Healing and confirms much of my work. What I want to discuss is the core belief that “Healing is Remembering You Are Whole”! How inspiring is That! Think about the possibilities this suggests!

When we feel separate from Source and our Inner Self we believe we have to heal, change or fix ourselves or others. We believe this because we don’t feel our connection to Source. We feel broken and ‘not enough’! We are driven to try to fix or change ourselves and often do this by searching outside of ourselves. We seek someone or something that will fix, change or heal our thoughts, our bodies, our emotions and our Soul/Spirit. As discussed in my last blog on Addictions to Wholeness we become addicted because we don’t remember who we are and that we are already ‘whole’ within ourselves. We become addicted to searching outside ourselves for the answer that lies within. That answer is that we are already ‘Whole’! We don’t need to change or fix ourselves and healing occurs when we remember this ‘truth’.

Now we know that ‘things happen’ and we will never have complete control over anything that ‘happens’. However, we can be in charge of how we respond and we can choose Love instead of reacting from a place of fear. We only react when we take things personally. We take things personally because we forget ‘Who we are’ and that we are already ‘Whole and Perfect’. True freedom comes when we stop seeking outside ourselves and know what can only be offered from within. True freedom comes when we stop our ‘addictions’ which distract ourselves from discomfort and from feeling all the beliefs we have that we are Broken and Not Enough. This is when we can stand in ourselves and, like Matt Kahn says, “Whatever Arises, Love That”. Love it and remember that we are already Whole. We have a Divine Spark within us that is Infinite and Whole!

Things happen and we can choose to come from a place of Love instead of Fear. We can choose to connect to that Infinite BEing within us that is Whole and Knows it is Perfect just as it is. When we stand in a place of BEing empowered we remember. When we get caught up in the Fear – and fear permeates the collective unconscious of this planet so there’s a lot of fear – we then believe we have to change, fix and heal something within ourselves or someone or situation outside ourselves. This is how we forget and this is when ‘healing’ loses the Magick that we inherently are.

Let me give an example of what I’m saying: this month I had to have a root canal on a back molar. Ten years ago I was told I would likely have to have a root canal on this tooth. This month I remembered why I am terrified of dentists (after my dentist asked me to meditate while she was doing a cleaning as she refused to fill the tooth that needed a root canal): when I was 6 or 7 I ran into a wall and chipped my tooth. The dentist that we had told my parents and everyone (including our insurance) that I had to have a root canal on this tooth because it was exposing a nerve. I discovered many years later this root canal was never done and he lied. However, I believe now he was a bit of a sadist and this lie gave him an opportunity to torture me without the proper local anesthetic for a couple of hours. My mom remembers me screaming the whole time. So this fear began a long mistrust in authority figures! This kind of mistrust impacts almost every area of my life. It sets up a pattern of mistrust and a belief that others can have power over me. So I kept putting off the procedure.

However avoidance and ignorance won’t make something go away. We already tried this with our addictions. Pretending they aren’t there won’t help us to BE Whole or to remember our Infinite Self.  Now it is possible that I could have ‘healed’ this from ever having to occur but as I said “things happen” and I had delayed it out of fear for too long. Things happen because we need to remember and in this case ‘heal’ my fear around a distrust of authority figures (which I may have never realized if it wasn’t through this dental surgery). The gift in ‘healing’ may not be what we want (not having to ever go to a dentist) but can certainly be what we need – which is to heal a belief that is disempowering!

Things will continue to happen in our lives and our choice is to Remember Who we Are. To choose Love over fear. To Remember we are always Whole. Our bodies are temporary and borrowed. We can grow in changing our beliefs. I couldn’t trust dentists so I ignored and avoided them. I chose Fear! Freedom comes from choosing LOVE regardless of what happens and remembering the Magick of our Infinite Self. This empowers us to Remember our Wholeness and experience the Infiniteness of our True Self. Is there anything you are still living in fear of? How can you Remember the Magick of YOU that is Infinite and Whole?

July Newsletter 2016 ~ Addictions to Wholeness!

Happy Summer!!

summer

Wow, Summer is Here and we’ve had our 1st long weekend of the summer with Canada Day and July 4th Independence Day! With perfect weather.

I had a bittersweet ending to the month as I spent time with family I haven’t seen in years but laid my brother’s ashes to rest. It’s all part of the process of Life. Knowing our Soul is infinite still has it’s challenges, although it is easier to BE with. However, the world has been growing with it’s own challenges, what happened in Florida and Middle East is Heart Breaking. The Tribute song to raise money for Florida is so valid right now: What the World needs now is Love Sweet Love!

My 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! Reserve 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:
We end the month of June with Mars stationing direct (June 29th)!  Keep in mind; we are still in the transformational cycle that is necessary as we integrate our forward moving actions.  How does one move forward in July? Well, I say take it step by step.  We are still feeling the T square energy of Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune as we enter into the beginning of July.  The desire for growth (Jupiter) that is being restricted (Saturn) infused with confusion (Neptune).  This planetary concoction has left many people scratching their heads asking, “What the…?!” . The answer is TRUTH!  We are all searching and seeing out own inner truth, as well as, our outer truth.  One may notice that through seeing the lies, but lets face it, why get hung up on the lie, when we can align with the truth?!

Mid month, Jupiter pulls out of the mix, but Saturn and Neptune are still squaring it off.  So try to focus on as much clarity as possible as you integrate this battle of practical vs illusion, physical vs spiritual, or the desire to escape reality.  Stay as grounded as possible while focusing on your dreams.

Also Mid Month, Mercury, and Venus both move into the sing of Leo, stimulating a more playful energy!  We can all use more play, so lighten up and let your inner child out to have some fun.  The Sun moves into Leo on the 22nd of the Month, supporting that playful energy.  Let your hearts open wide so that healing can happen!

We end the month with Uranus stationing retrograde.  When the planet of “expect the unexpected” begins to station, well, let just say that!  Who knows what is going to take place.  Its all about chaos or freedom, which one are you going to awaken to?  Just remember, hold onto no expectations, and allow yourself the ability to explore something unique within the self, as we all awaken to a new Month and some new energy!

Breath deep as you release June, transform your actions, ground your dreams, play, illuminate your heart center and awaken to the true you!!!

Inspiration this month: Addiction to Wholeness!

addictionsThis month I became aware of a deeper message on addictions: a deeper core message that results in us rarely ever getting over them but usually just substituting one addiction for another. There is a reason for this that is outlined in Guy Finley’s book Breaking Dependencies which was recommended by Emmanuel Dagher.

Our addictions are what we create to fill a void. Of course the void is all illusion but while we are asleep – metaphorically – we don’t feel whole. Our addictions can be because we are a culture that doesn’t like to look at or feel discomfort of any kind so we use sugar, alcohol, drugs and any other activities to distract us from feeling uncomfortable. The discomfort stems from this emptiness we feel inside us. This void is pure illusion because we are ‘whole’ in our ‘spirit’! When it comes to why we feel we aren’t ‘whole’ it is because in our world love is conditional. This isn’t to blame anyone; it is just how this physical world works currently. We are here to evolve towards love, to make choices around love or fear. And when we feel we aren’t enough, that love is conditional, we believe that this is true. We don’t feel that our option is to choose love but to see fear in everything around us. And when that moment becomes our story, we choose an addiction to fill the emptiness that tells us we aren’t enough or we aren’t lovable as we are!

Addictions come in multiple forms: from what we ingest to help us feel pleasure, to creating co-dependent and dependent relationships. As infants we were completely dependent on our family and as we learned that love is conditional we developed strategies to help people love us. We create coping mechanisms that are ‘addictive’ ways to live in our world. What addiction we create is because we feel this emptiness inside us and our ego becomes formed and within our nature we tend to have the voice that tells us this piece of chocolate will fill the void (even if just temporarily) and the other voice that pushes against it that says we need to be strong and avoid the temptation because it is unhealthy. Unfortunately both voices are keeping our addictions occurring because even the voice that tells us to be strong is suggesting that we need to change or fix something within us. We choose addictions and dependencies to fill an emptiness that can’t be filled because the emptiness doesn’t exist: we are ‘whole’ and there is no piece of our spirit that isn’t complete. Sugar, alcohol, cigarettes, feeling that we need everyone to like us or judging others, is just filling a temporary emptiness that keeps us in a pattern that makes us believe we need to have outside things, outside approval, feeling superior over someone or pleasure to heal, fix, change something inside of us that will make us more complete! This need comes from our ego and unconscious nature – not our ‘true Self”.

Nothing we do outside or inside will make us complete until we ‘remember’ who we are! Who we are, has nothing to do with this physical world and its ability to make us whole. It comes from observing ourselves. We can only free ourselves when we hear, feel, see or know when something changes where we feel a craving to fill the emptiness or discomfort within us. Let’s look at an example in my life: I have been using both food (sugar and salty foods) and binge watching on Netflix or Streaming movies and series because I’m feeling an emptiness within me. When I look deeper it can come from suggestion while watching some movie or show or it is why I busy myself watching and get caught up which creates the unconscious pattern of either binge eating or watching Netflix. Looking even deeper I can acknowledge many of the behaviors I see as disempowering me coming from a similar unconscious ‘need’ to fill my time, because of loneliness, dis-ease, or a void within. I laugh at the absurdity of my nature thinking that food will even temporarily fill the void or that I can even convince myself that just one more time and I will never want it again because I will have filled that ‘need’. But then I can see the darker parts of me that constantly measure my worth against others. If I judge someone it is because I measured myself as superior in some way. I have done both: measured myself as superior and feel inferior as I still desire them to like and approve of me. And our desire to have everyone like us comes from the same emptiness. No matter how many people approve of us as long as there is one person who doesn’t our ego justifies its position to feel empty and not worthy.

And there is no outer or inner thing we can ‘do’ that will make our addictions go away. If we diet we are actually strengthening our resolve that there is indeed something wrong that we have to fix. And it will strengthen the ‘need’ to fill it with more food eventually – or just replace it with something else. We all know those people who become addicted to exercise after a diet; people who have to eat more after quitting smoking; or people who make a health choice to become vegetarian but judge everyone who isn’t. They just replaced one addiction with another!

We will only overcome our addictions – and there are many different kinds within each of us – when we can remember that we are not our bodies; that we choose a Loving Nature over fear; that our ‘infinite spirit’ resides within each of us; that we can let our ‘hearts’ lead our ‘heads’ and know that we are ‘whole’ and complete as we are! When we know we have certain tendencies that we want to change, we should observe that part of us that chooses to fill a void.

Feel the void! Give it a voice and then Remember you are Perfect and Whole just as you are! Remember that Light within you and Shine it out to the World!

June Newsletter 2016 – What would you do… if you Loved Yourself?

Happy Summer Solstice!

angeledCan you believe it is almost Summer? I’m amazed at how quickly time is flying by! Or maybe it is because I’ve been so busy lately, and time seems to move quicker when you are busy?

The energies have been intense and I’m not sure it is getting any lighter. However, I believe that everything is exactly as it is supposed to BE! BEing open to all that is around us and BEing as present as possible helps you from ‘reacting’ and instead keeps you in a state of BEing. And seeing the Magick in everything! Like this angel in the ‘fireworks’.

I”m enJOYing life more and feeling Grateful for all the Magick life is offering me.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
The Sun, Venus (and on June 12) Mercury will all be in the sign of Gemini stimulating duality. Saturn is in the sign of Sagittarius, opposing all that Gemini energy! Saturn is square Jupiter, and square Neptune. Jupiter is in the sign of Virgo, sharing space with the North Node, while it is opposite Neptune. While the South Node in Pisces is sandwiched in-between Neptune and Chiron. And if you would like to know…  Mars is still Retrograde, and even though he has slipped back into the sign of Scorpio, he is still opposite the Sun and Venus (and Mercury as we approach mid June), only it puts a bit of an unconscious twist to the energy!

Who’s left?  Pluto in Capricorn supporting the transformation of the Nodal power of aligning with the earth and spirit. Then there is Uranus… who is only interacting with Chiron in a minor way, asking everyone one to karmicly finish up on the self-healing!

All mutable signs have activity (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces), and they are all interacting with one another. The problem with a mutable grand cross is the ‘changeability’ that is taking place.  It can feel like everything is changing at once and in the process one can become lost in all that change. Nothing is secure, nothing is fixated. The only one thing we can anchor out of all this changeable energy is… TRUTH!

So I ask you… are you feeling lost? Caught in an illusion of desire that goes against your own truth? We are on a path to seeking truth.  Only we do not allow others to see the truth that we hold within ourselves. Why is that? Why do we choose to live lies?  Why do we hide from our authentic nature? Is it acceptance? Do we desire to be accepted by others that in return we deny who we truly are?  I know I can only do that for a short period of time. I use to be able to tolerate it, to deny who I was for most of my life.  But I think you get to a place within the self that gets you to question “why am I lying to myself? Why?” The truth is we can not accept who we are.  It is through this energy of June that we are being shown on a truthful level who we are. Often this plays out in our relationships, as people in our lives are simply mirrors to our own truth and falsehood.

Relationship dynamics have been playing out for a while as we approached the Venus opposite Mars aspect (aspect exact on May 24th). Best thing to remember, is keep calm within the self, as you are learning and integrating your own inner authenticity. When you are living authentically within the self, then you are taking responsibility for your own personal truth.  Once you align with your truth, then nothing can stop you from BEing the best you can BE!

What would you do… if you Loved Yourself?

lovedRecently, I came into contact with an amazing healer Ziad Hashash and have purchased his Divine Partner series that has been an incredible journey into LOVE! He asked this powerful question in his Self-Love session: If you loved yourself what would you do? To ask yourself this for 21 days every time you have to make a decision small or big it is a way to honor your choices and your Divine Child.

As I pondered this question I saw how many times I sabotaged myself. I began making better choices and could see that there are reasons for everything. Last week, Ziad discussed needs and manipulation in the Divine Love section of the series. This was the last piece I needed to help me see – or to have wisdom – as to why certain things were still sabotaging my desire for divine health from the inside out.

Let’s discuss what this means. We have needs and wants that were never met as children and these needs turn into patterns by the age of 7. These needs have blocked us from moving forward towards love. And they never matured into our adult understanding of who we are now. These are usually basic needs such as needing to be loved, needing to be heard, seen, supported, acknowledged, and safe and these needs have affected our self-worth.

Fast forward to whoever you have now become, a ‘you’ who has pushed these needs down into your subconscious and they now come out as manipulations. Not intentionally, but acting out as our wounded inner child who still needs these needs met, we often sabotage ourselves by asking for the needs we had as children to be fulfilled. For example: someone who has been abandoned and didn’t feel safe as a child would still manipulate life around her to have others show her she is now supported or safe. Can you see how this would work? Since we don’t realize this is a need from our 1-7 year old self we manipulate our world around us and we manipulate others so that we can have others show us what we need. The problem with this is that it is manipulating others and we don’t actually get what we need because what we need needs to come from within as we address the real needs of the inner wounded child! However knowing about the how and why of your manipulative actions can give great insights into why things continue to thwart your deeper needs: the healing of the inner child.

I need to make an aside about manipulation here: we aren’t talking about manipulating maliciously; we are talking about how as a small child we needed to have certain needs met, needs related to learning something that we likely contracted to learn in this life. Something that is related to a core belief so that we continue to search for our needs to be met outside of us because we ultimately feel separate from God. Our parents did the best they could and were likely contracted to support our learning by doing something like in my case putting me up for adoption to help me learn about feeling safe and supported. So I searched outside of myself to feel safe and supported while my adoptive parents, friends, and loves could never meet that need no matter how they tried because it wasn’t the outside that was the problem. So, when I would manipulate myself, my body and others it wasn’t malicious. It was to finally understand my need within.

My need within for Divine Health.

Once I asked myself – and healed some of the reasons I was making poor eating choices for example – ‘if I loved myself, what would I do’, I had other areas come up such as pain that was blocking me from being able to move freely! But I wasn’t asking why I had pain? So, where I thought I had healed one area I just brought another up for observation and I became more aware of it because of the pain. My need for feeling safe and supported was now being highlighted.

I realized this ‘pain’ was just another result of where I was sabotaging my health to manipulate myself and others to feel safe and supported within. That was the true problem! All of the past few years of ‘pain’ have been helping me, or trying to help me, see the truth behind my not feeling safe and supported. Because the outside world can’t make me feel safe or supported it is my wounded inner child that is manipulating everything outside to show me my inner beliefs and needs!

No matter how much I change my outside world to reflect how safe and supported I truly am I will continue to manipulate myself and others around me until I can feel safe and supported inside! Yet I would have never seen any of this without the help of this so important question: If you loved yourself, what would you do? And I would never have seen this without the continuous questioning of why certain things are ‘happening’ in my world.

Everything is in our life for a reason! Every person, ache, allergy, dis-ease… everything! Yet if we continue to see everything as personal and continue to engage our ego we will miss the lesson. If we continue to blame and judge another for what is happening in our lives we miss the lesson! If we judge or shame ourselves we miss the lesson. The lesson isn’t outside of us, it is the light that is inside that has been bruised by a belief that we could have chosen before we were even born!

How empowering is the question “if you loved yourself what would you do?” I invite you to continue to dig even deeper into all the pieces of your magnificent puzzle that is YOU! You might uncover why you do the things you do, and shift into just BEing your true essence! You might finally understand your “wounded child” and honor your Divine Child within. You could uncover why you manipulate yourself – and others – and make choices that are healthier and then, shining even greater, the Light that is YOU!
