Dec Newsletter 2014: Will you be in the Magic of the Moment this Holiday Season?

Happy Holidays!

fallingstarsDecember is a month of Holidays! It can also be a bit challenging for those of us who are sensitive to energies and who have difficulties with the Holidays. The days leading up to Solstice, the shortest day of the year, when the light returns, can be depressing for some people. On Dec 14-15 we have the 5th direct hit of Uranus square Pluto (only one more in Mar 2015 and we’ll be finally finished this difficult square). Jupiter goes retrograde on the 8th. New moon and Uranus going Direct on our Solstice could be quite important and positive! New beginnings in Capricorn to assist us with our goals and resolutions.

Will you be in the Magic of the Moment this Holiday Season?

When we are trulyWeihnachtsmann mit Rentierschlitten und Sternschnuppe in the Magic of the Moment, we are giving from the heart with no expectations. We feel washed over with joy in just being. At the same time, we remain authentic to ourselves and do not compromise who we are. Hopefully you can close your eyes and recall exactly how this feels in your heart and your body. Remember that feeling and make a promise to yourself to create Moments of Magic this holiday season!

How do you help yourself keep such a promise? Give Love! Not only to others but to yourself too! When you do something, don’t do it because you have to, but because you honestly, with an open Heart, want to! If you are asked to do something that triggers you, shift into a different space of unconditional giving or if it is something that doesn’t feel authentic, discuss it with them or find a way to stay true to who you are without being triggered! Most importantly, know whether this is your trigger or something that feels inauthentic! It isn’t our journey to heal, fix or change someone else, but it is for us to evolve and grow spiritually.

One of the biggest triggers around the holiday season for many people is unmet expectations. Recently, Jean Adrienne and I had a great show on family expectations. Listen here. Often without realizing it we push our needs onto others, expect them to reciprocate by meeting our needs and then we get upset because our needs are not being met!

There are many triggers that occur in family environments, they are often the very earliest memories that continue to be a pattern in our lives. Often the biggest problem is that not only are you unaware what your trigger is, but you don’t know what you need either! You don’t know how to meet your own needs, let alone have someone else meet your needs for you. We want others to know us, yet, we barely know ourselves.

We also have a problem with being authentic. We often do things because we feel we have to instead of wanting to, especially with our families around the Holidays. As parents, we feel we can tell our children what to do and as children we naturally want to rebel when our parents demand something of us. We all have problems being able to say no and often we are left feeling guilt and shame. This pattern repeats in many areas of our lives, but our family can trigger this the most.

So how do you avoid this miserable cycle? Through understanding yourself, learning what your needs are and how to meet them, you will discover the most important piece of the puzzle of YOU and the secret to living in the Magical Moments of the holidays!

We can begin to understand ourselves by knowing what we need when we get triggered. The best way to establish this is to get really centered at the start of each day. Whenever we begin to feel unbalanced throughout the day just step away and focus on your breathing, ground yourself and determine what your calm level is. Ask yourself what it is you desire right now? Notice your body’s responses and reactions. Are you feeling anxious? Are you feeling centered? Once you are centered, grounded and feeling calm, then this is your starting point (your ground zero). From this point you will be able to determine when you get triggered. When you feel yourself straying from this point, ask yourself what is different, what do you need?

This is where we can learn the most about ourselves and our triggers. It also gives us an opportunity to respond instead of react. Determining what we need can be tricky, for many we learn to forsake our needs for others (especially around our families), for others, our needs may be misunderstood for something else (eg. we may believe we desire food to emotionally eat instead of dealing with what is causing the emotional reaction). It is really only what we know about ourselves that can assist us in determining our needs, yet it is discovering this calm level that will allow us the place to determine when we go off balance.

We all have memories of the Magic of the Holidays; we all have a desired outcome for the Holidays. Reach into your memory of a time when you still believed in the Magic of Santa and/or Giving and use this memory to guide you on how you would like to feel this Holiday Season. Use this as your calm point and imagine your heart to be fully open to Giving and Love for yourself and others. This is the true spirit of the Holidays!

News for the Heart: Tom Paladino on Scalar Energy

tompaladinoLaurie Huston from News for the Heart, has interviewed Tom Paladino on Scalar Energy. We discussed the difference between Scalar and Electromagnetic energy, what Scalar energy is and how Tom can change the world with this clean energy, removing all pathogens (viruses, bacteria, parasites or other microorganisms that can cause disease), offering nutrient therapy and clearing our chakras or meridians, by assisting us to return to Zero Point or perfect alignment. Join us for this fascinating discussion that can help you change your life. We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

Tom Paladino’s research and work with the scalar energy, began during his undergraduate years. He was inspired by various scientists, i.e., Hieronymus, Moray, Priore’ and especially Nikola Tesla, as to the existence of an energy that is not of the electromagnetic spectrum. With this inspiration, he pursued a course of independent study in order to better understand and subsequently harness scalar energy.

Scalar energy is also known as prana, chi, radiant energy, zero point energy, qi, orgone, eloptic. After years of experimentation and modification, Tom Paladino has developed a technique using scalar energy that will transmute pathogens quickly and painlessly. This technique facilitates the use of photographs of people who desire to have pathogens transmuted in their bodies.

Tom Paladino developed a treatment process whereby he is able to administer the scalar energy reverse-phase angle harmonic of a pathogen, thereby causing that agent of infection to disassemble or fall apart. His Pathogen Cleanse disassembles over 25,000 pathogens for humans and animals. The Nutrient Therapy delivers 231 essential nutrients to the cells of humans and animals. The Chakra Balance harmonizes the body for humans and animals.

Scalar energy operates at the quantum level and is capable of disassembling pathogens such as virus, bacteria, parasite, protozoal, amoeba, prion, thus eliminating the causative agent of disease. Once the causative agent of a pathogen disease has been eliminated the symptoms associated with that infection decrease or disappear altogether.

The 30 Day Remote Scalar Session includes the three protocols delivered seven days per week over a 30 day period,

Nov Newsletter 2014: Can you tell the difference between fear and your gut intuition?

Happy American Thanksgiving

The New Moon Solar Eclipse on October 23rd sets the tone for much of November, and was in the sign of Scorpio, ruled by Pluto. We are encouraged to move away from our comfort zone and to welcome new ways to live, heal, and transform. However, mostly this is a quiet month, Neptune turns direct on the 16th, the illusions now become clearer and we have more faith in our dreams and visions.

in the US, Americans celebrate their Thanksgiving and we settle into the Holiday Season. Take time to feel grateful and imagine how you can celebrate the Holidays this year with more consciousness.

BeMajor.org is taking off, please refer to facebook for when my shows are happening. I also may have sent you a facebook friend request from BeMajor.org’s new profile and page, please take some time and join us! Our shows will also be updated there too! There are contests as well, join the Fun!

When are warnings our fear or our gut intuition?

fall_autumn_trees1With Halloween just finished, I have been contemplating fear and intuition. We know that science has proven the existence of a neural network or brain associated with our gut. Gut intuition is about perseverance. Our gut will warn us when it needs to protect us. Our heart brain is all about love and compassion and our head brain can be quite creative. So our intuition here is often clear, because it has to do with love and acceptance or showing us some creative solutions to problems. However, when you get that feeling in your gut, how do you tell the difference between fear and intuition?

I have an example of just this, when I made an appointment last week for my muscle activation guru Josh Young. I set up an appointment earlier in the week and wasn’t thinking about the date when I made it. I also had a healing done prior that created a great deal of need to relax and re-energize for a few days. What day did I make the appointment for, you ask? Mercury has been retrograde since Oct 3rd and we were in between 2 eclipses. Just as we were scheduled for our solar eclipse on Oct 23rd and mercury was about to go direct on the 25th, I booked an appointment for, yep you guessed it the 23rd! Mercury is always worst right before and during when it goes retrograde and when it goes direct, throw in the solar eclipse and… BOOM!

The day of the 22nd I considered cancelling my appointment because I wasn’t feeling very energetic. I wasn’t sure if it was my physical condition, my intuition or just apathy that was having me reconsider. When the day arrived, I still felt quite awful and my intuition was nudging me to cancel. However, I decided that my health was a priority and I was going ahead. Also, my phone only had 28% battery charge, even though this should last me half a day; I ignored my intuition again when I kept getting I should charge it before I left.

I took the subway there, as it was a pretty good route, but I planned to take advantage of my newly acquired membership with a car share program (car2go), for the way home. I knew after the treatment, I would just want to get home as quickly as I could to relax and rejuvenate, so I reserved the car in my area. After my appointment the car wasn’t where it was supposed to be. I spent 10-15 minutes trying to locate it, I found one in a different spot 5 levels lower but I couldn’t activate it (it was out of service). I called the company and spent a 15-20 minutes talking with them while trying to locate the car. As soon as I was back at the entrance, my intuition did tell me where it was; there was a lot across the street that although wasn’t a Green P parking lot, had a green sign and a green P in the sign. I got cut off from the company while exploring where the car was, as we were going further and further underground. I did finally locate it, but I had to call back to have the car put in service, as I had been the 4th person to try and locate it. This would have been an ideal time to walk away and choose a new course of action, however I was invested in moving forward and I just wanted to get home.

At this point, my phone no longer had a battery charge and I got in the car, only to have my intuition tell me once again there was something wrong. I continued, ignoring my intuition for the 3rd time that day. I quickly discovered that the radio wasn’t working (usually not a problem, except you need the radio to use the inboard call center). Within a few minutes my intuition was going on high alert, because the car just wasn’t feeling “right”. After about 10-12 minutes of driving, I unfortunately discovered why, I had a flat tire. So, now I’m stranded, in an area that is not close to anything, my phone isn’t working and neither is the inboard phone! So, I had to get out of the car, find a convenience store and plead to use their phone. Of course I get a newbie and he leaves me on the phone for over 25 minutes and I got kicked out of the store, completely stranded. I was too angry to think and ended walking home which took me 2 hours. All the great work of my treatment felt a waste as I was exhausted and in a lot of pain by the time I got home.

OK, now for the moral of the story! We have all had these kinds of crazy days that seem to just snowball no matter how much we try to salvage the developing situation. It is important to take the time to understand what was motivating our choices when these situations arise. However, it is just as important to let yourself off the hook! Judging yourself for the choices you make in life, especially when things go horribly wrong, won’t help. Learning to strengthen your ability to trust and honor your internal guidance systems can drastically improve the quality of your day to day life.

When I reflect on my crazy day I can see that I was trying to control this situation and not honoring my gut! I wasn’t centered while I was searching for a way to get home therefore ignoring my intuition because I was too attached to my original plan.

When we are in good form and something is off it is relatively easy to shift our day. However, when we aren’t feeling great and are in need of some TLC and our day takes a turn for the worse, this is when it is most important to make sure we have lots of tools at our disposal to turn things around. We need to come up with our own rituals for understanding and honoring our intuition, which can even include creating the space to just let things be until whatever is going on passes.

Learning to trust my intuition and remembering that my gut is a fierce warrior that deserves to be heard regardless of what it is saying is now important. I believe from now on I will connect in with my three brains for guidance when I am getting contradictory information. Taking the time to reflect on what was happening internally has given me the insight I need to completely shift my day next time things go wrong. What about you? What do you do when confronted with a crazy day?

Oct Newsletter 2014~ What keeps you up at night?

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween!
For my Canadian friends, we celebrate Thanksgiving early, next weekend. As I was reminded by a friend, it is our Pagan Holiday, where we are grateful for the bounty of our crops vs when we broke bread with the Native Americans. Fall Equinox has come and our trees are beginning to turn! Unfortunately, Mercury is ready to retrograde this weekend,Oct 04, 2014 in the sign of Scorpio helping us to fix where we aren’t being real, then falls back into Libra on Oct 10th and will focus on strengthening communications in our relationships; both personal and business for the remainder of the retrograde.
 
If that wasn’t enough, we also have a lunar and solar eclipse.Oct 8th we will have a full lunar eclipse in Aries, freedom being the theme and Oct 23 is the Solar eclipse at 0º of Scorpio, New moons are always about new beginnings, but because it is at the very beginning of the sign, it would suggest a breakthrough new beginning!! Be Gentle to yourself!!
Happy Halloween! 🙂

My Inspiration:

halloweenThis month I went to Trudy Van Buskirk’s network meeting Women Entrepreneurs Building Businesses  in the Beach to meet up with author Suzan St Maur. It was a workshop on writing blogs. My favorite piece of advice was “what keeps your clients awake at night”. This is what I have pondered for the past few weeks.
For me it isn’t what keeps me up at night, but what wakes me up and keeps me up in the early hours of the morning. Continue reading

tranquil-lakeWe have all heard sayings such as Home is where the Heart is and Follow your Heart. One of my favorite quotes is: “Our Heart carries the wings of our dreams and the desire to realize them” by Fernando Soave.

The heart has the power to deliver our dreams and has been the focus of my energy for several years. I have grown to understand and appreciate this power. Training and research has proven that my intuitive guidance on the power of the heart is as impressive as I had believed. I am participating in a Tele-summit RealitiesofCreation.com that begins September 8th. We will publish a book (of which my chapter is all about the Power of the Heart) and we will be going on a cruise in April, 2015. For my part of the book, I have two purposes; one is to show all the research that has been done to help you understand the power of the heart; and how using this research to keep your heart clear and coherent you may have access to as much of the Heart Field as possible. Secondly, it is to offer you ways to access the power of the heart to create the dreams you desire in your life and align to your Soul’s Purpose!

‎The human Heart is now documented as the strongest generator of both electric and magnetic fields in the body. This is important, because we’ve always been taught that the brain is where all of the action is. Multiple Brain Integration Techniques from mBraining.com (research done through Grant Soosla) teaches that we have 3 brains (proven to date), our mind has 100 billion neurons, the gut brain has 500 million neurons (the same size as the brains of cats and dogs) and the heart has only 30,000-120,000 neurons. While the brain also has an electromagnetic field, it is relatively weak compared to the Heart. The Heart is about 100,000 times stronger electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain. This is important, because the physical world is made of these two fields: the electric and magnetic fields of Energy. Physics demonstrates that a change in our electromagnetic field produces atomic level transformation: as we change our energy, we change our state of matter and BEing, and moreover, everyone we encounter. We literally change that atom and its elements within our body and this world. The human Heart is designed to do this from an emotional state.

Heartmath.com teaches that our heart emits an electromagnetic field that changes in accordance to our emotions. The magnetic field can be measured several feet from the body. Positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body. You can boost your immune system by conjuring positive emotions. Negative emotions create a nervous system chaos where positive emotions do the opposite. The heart has a system of neurons that have both short and long term memory, and their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experience. Our heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa. Our positive emotions help the brain in creativity and innovative problem solving. Positive emotions increase the brain’s ability to make good decisions.

What does this mean? The implications are huge!

Research has shown that the heart sends powerful signals to the brain and rest of the body. Once understood and accessed, these heart signals give you more ability to self-regulate your emotions and nervous system and to make changes you thought you couldn’t make before. Throughout history, people have talked about the core values of the heart, which include love, care, appreciation, respect, compassion, kindness, forgiveness and non-judgment. These values and attitudes, which we call core heart feelings, generate the heart signals that bring more coherence to the body’s systems. When your initial effort is “from the heart,” it brings your mind and emotions into cooperative alignment, and this gives you more intuitive clarity to clear disturbances, and more strength and energy to achieve your goals. That’s why coaches say, “play from the heart” or “sing from the heart” or “put your heart into it.” Putting your heart into whatever you do gives more power, enjoyment and better results.

What interferes with our Heart’s inner power is stress. One of the largest positive impacts on stress is through our breath. If breath controls the heart, and heart produces our most powerful field generator, then breath becomes one of our most potent catalysts for changing our energy field.

In martial art, yoga, bodywork, counseling and coaching, we use a tool called entrainment (Heartmath calls Coherence): a technique for synchronizing and controlling cardiac rhythm by an external stimulus, in most cases, our own breath. As we breathe, so too does the entrained individual or group. As we change our breath, and entrain others to do so, we change the heart rhythm – the most powerful force in the human body.

Quick Coherence:

1. Heart Focus: Focus your attention in the area of your heart, in the center of your chest.

2. Heart Breathing: As you focus on the area of your heart, imagine your breath flowing in and out through that area.

3. Heart Feeling: As you continue to breathe through the area of your heart, recall a positive feeling, a time when you felt good inside, and try to re-experience it.
