Jan Newsletter 2017: Resolutions and Sabotage

Happy New Year!

 

I want to wish everyone a Magical New Year 2017!

Well many of us will be happy that 2016 is behind us and a New 1 year cycle begins on Jan 1st 2017 (1-1-1)! For many, including myself these past 9 years have been a HUGE growing period, although, this past year seemed to have many blessings, I became a published author with a chapter in Realities of Creation, I appeared in a documentary with an interview of Tom Campbell that I did back in 2009, the documentary was The Path 3 Evolution and I found my beautiful Angel (photo below); I also had challenges with loss and transformations. So, I for one am very happy to start this New Year and New cycle. In a message for a new teleclass, this year is about “Possibilities” which we can be open to as long as we are in the NOW moment.

Please remember we are still in Mercury Retrograde so as we make plans for New Years Eve and beyond till Jan 9th, to make sure you double check anything electronic like reservations or emails as this trickster planet loves to play. Also, due to Neptune on New Years Eve please don’t drink and drive!

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

We start a New Year filled with new beginnings!  Yes, this is a one year which is filled with potentials and possibilities!  The key to remember is that we are all focusing on the principle of will and focused consciousness.  This is the year to align your thoughts and your mind with precision like focus on what you desire to start in your life.  2016 brought us many endings, closures and completions, some of which had major karmic implications.  Whenever we deal with Karmic completion, it is never easy on the ego.  However, hopefully everyone learned their lessons, that way we can totality embrace the newness that 2017 brings us.

The key astrological vibrations for this year are Mercury, Jupiter, and the Sun.  All of those planets bring forth the ONE vibration.  Speaking of Mercury, we start the year while in a Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury stationed retrograde on December 19th at 15 degrees of Capricorn and will station direct on January 8th at 28 Degrees of Sagittarius.  So we start the year with RE-structuring the mind and our thought process.  I see this as a good thing as we all need to clear away the karmic completion energy of 2016.  There are deep mental transformations taking place with this particular mercury retrograde, so embrace any releasing that you are doing until it stations direct.

In a year when Mercury has power, most of the retrograde cycles start in earth signs and retrograde back into fire signs.  This is a year to focus on realigning the body and spirit!  Communication is important this year, so get clear in your thoughts!  Unity is a major theme and with Mercury, we are focusing on the Unity of Self!

Jupiter represents growth, abundance, and spiritual learning.  Jupiter’s journey in 2017 focuses on the Unity in Diversity as the individual interacts in society.  Jupiter will remain in the sign of Libra (relationships and balance) until it shifts into Scorpio (transformation) on Oct 10, 2017.  More on the influence of Jupiter later in the year!  So stay tuned!!

The Sun shifts signs every month and when it does, it shifts how our ego and spirit interact in the different situations within life at any given moment.  The Sun inspires the Unity of Spirit and our vital life force energy.  We are looking to align with our heart chakra this year.  To find the passion that resides within our heart (love) and create something magical (forgiveness).  The eclipses in 2017 are shifting from the Virgo / Pisces polarity of 2016 into the Leo / Aquarius Polarity.  Again emphasising the need to operate with heart centered consciousness in your interactions and goals for 2017.  (Eclipses are taking place in the Month of February and August in 2017).

This January, embrace what your spirit is asking you to do.  Align your will and consciousness and focus on the desired outcomes that reside within your heart.  Feel the passion of this new energy surge through you, but don’t forget to ACT and do what is necessary!  I wish everyone a prosperous, abundant, joyous, healthy and aligned 2017!

Inspiration: Resolutions and Sabotage

I have to say the last month of this year made up for the challenges throughout 2016. Receiving my sweet little kitten, Angel, on Dec 7th was definitely part of the Christmas Magic I so often talk about! However I’m amazed that the year is ending and a New Year, a new 9 year cycle is beginning. On Jan 1st 2017 (1-1-1) we begin a whole new cycle and I invite you to contemplate what the next 9 years hold for you, not just 2017. I, for one, can say that over these past 9 years I have grown more towards love than ever before. That certainly doesn’t mean it has been easy, no, not by any stretch of the imagination. This past 9 year cycle has seen change, death and transformation. In fact, I have been able to completely anchor my business and my services with a whole new energy – even when the price seemed quite high at the time.

I invite you to consider what you have learned over the past year and the last 9 year cycle. As you contemplate your New Year’s Resolutions for 2017 – and the next 9 years – I encourage you to ponder not what you want outside of you but rather how you would like to BE inside! It is my belief that it is the outside desires that are often sabotaged; like losing weight, stopping smoking, getting fit, and getting organized. These are all things that we “do” and when we check out the stats, apparently only 8% of our ‘doings’ are actually successful! Why? Because we sabotage ourselves and aren’t coming from an authentic place of “BEing”.

‘Doing’ results in falling back onto old patterns – especially if we haven’t changed any of our beliefs, fears or expectations – because we are trying to control, manipulate, change or fix ourselves from this ‘doing’ state. Emmanuel Dagher offered this beautiful meditation from his free gifts of the Holidays on ‘Sabotaging’. He, as always, brought up some profound thoughts and healings on why we sabotage ourselves and he helped us to want to BE seen, heard, and recognized by the Universe as Honoring the Universe within us. We are so afraid of BEing seen, heard, and recognized that this leads us to needing outside approval. And ultimately we also have trouble receiving all that the Universe offers us. So no wonder we have such low success rates in trying to ‘do’ things related to our past patterns.

When we come from a place of Being we are first connecting with the Infinite and Authentic Self within us. We are acknowledging our True Self. However, Tom Campbell also suggests that when we come from a place of BEing we are authentically revealing the fears that we often keep hidden. This would be where our little self lives and it is just as important to accept who we are from this “little” place. It is in this state of “littleness”, caused by the fears previously hidden, that we have the capacity to make changes to our Inner Being by BEing present and conscious of all the fears that keep our patterns and stories intact. In fact, I would suggest that this is how we sabotage ourselves the most.

Each of these ‘fear’ elements of our existence offer opportunities to shift into authenticity and levels of BEing. We each come from a place of expansion and a profound connection to our Infinite Self. This connection allows us to come from a feeling place of Love and of the Remembrance that we are already ‘Whole’. Such a connection opens us to the absolute and everlasting essence of who we are: the expansive and immeasurable Universe/Spirit/Soul within us. And it creates a feeling of oneness and unconditional Love that allow us to create Magic from this place of NOW. We can see, hear, and acknowledge our Self from a place of Wholeness and Beauty. In this state everything is Perfection. And our True Self aligns with Source.

The authentic circumstances that come from the smaller self are also just as important. These circumstances allow us see how we feel separate from Source and our Inner Self. This seeing and feeling is part of the way in which we can truly uncover our deepest fears; fears that dictate how we react automatically to our circumstances – circumstances in which we can see and understand that we don’t feel ‘Whole’ – and in such circumstances we create addictions to distract us from feeling and these distractions lead us to searching outside ourselves for things to “DO” to change, fix or heal ourselves. In other words, we feel broken or ‘not enough as we are’. And it is here that we sabotage ourselves.

When we can authentically acknowledge these deeper fears then we can come into a place of acceptance rather than create ways to change, fix or heal from a place outside ourselves. Once we can actually accept that these are the fears we carry with us, consciously or unconsciously, then we can credibly dive in and see these fears and how they are just part of a story we hold within us; a story we have made up instead of truth. We can move into a place of ‘now’ and detach from the inaccuracies we hold onto as truths.

I welcome you to come up with whichever authentic place that will create the most positive change for you. I see benefits from both the little place of limiting fear or the more expansive place of Wholeness but when I imagine 2017 – and the next 9 year cycle – I prefer to come from a place of infinite possibilities. I wish to feel my Wholeness and Inner Self that is expansive and Magical. My resolutions will include letting go of certain fears that I am ready to let go of but ultimately my intentions will be focused on how I want to ‘feel’ this next year: a space of unconditional Love and Acceptance; one that exudes Peace and JOY! What will you set your New Year’s intentions as?

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!

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.

August Newsletter 2016 ~ Healing is Remembering You are Whole!

Happy Hot Days of Summer!

ID-1002030Wow, the Summer is moving quickly, our nights are getting longer and the heat is HOT! I enJOY the summer, and this year due to the unusually warm winter, I’ve been able to do what I love most, which is swim in the Lake which is about a 3-4 minute walk from my home! I also enJOYed a fabulous day with Nancy Arruda on her Lake where we discussed what is happening for the rest of the summer with eclipses and a Mercury Retrograde happening at the end of the month. She will be sharing it in an interview coming Aug 10th. You won’t want to miss it! We’ll discuss this month and Sept!

Have you been caught up in the craziness of the energies this past few months? I know that I have had some effects which I share in my Inspiration below. I recommend you find your own way to feel supported and loved! Whether it is through our Heart-Centered Support Group or someone like Emmanuel Dagher and his Core Attunements class I mention below. We can all use some extra support to Remember we are Whole!

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! 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!

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!

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!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
This year is flying by, it seems like January 1st was only yesterday and now tomorrow is April 1st!  Let’s see who is going to fool who!  Every month this year we have welcomed it into being. Then breathed a sigh of relief as the month ended, praying that the next month would be better.

Typically, we can dance for joy in the month of April as the spring has sprung.  When I go outside, I can feel the chill in the air, so I am leaning more to the side of caution this month then I did in prior months. There is a bit of uncertainty in the air, a feeling that change is transpiring.  One may not know where the winds of change are blowing them, but do prepare for change, that is the only thing that is certain.

The beginning of the month we are being asked; “can you open your mind?” Several aspects taking place are challenging our mindset.  From having an over stimulated imagination to mentally pushing the limits, one must remember to stay grounded in their thought process. Mid month, both Mars and Pluto will be stationing retrograde. Both of these planets do know how to get along with one another, but here we have the god of war, playing nice with the god of the underworld. Ultimately, the theme here is transformation, both fast and slow. You will see what is changing; you may not be in control of it.

Mars the planet of action stations retrograde (April 17) and it is asking us to return to our own personal center, our heart center where our personal desires and motivations live, allowing us to transform our life so that it reflects more of what we want. One must actively eliminate that which stands in the way of your personal passion. How can you create the right mix of desire, will, passion, and love? Once you do figure out the right formula, what actions are necessary to create that from a place of higher resonance? Take time during the retrograde period to figure that out (Mars will station direct on June 29th, 2016).

The Pluto retrograde is all about inner transformation that is taking place on an evolutionary level.  We are speaking to the transformation that happens to us over time, and not necessarily the change that needs to take place now (like Mars).  It is here that one is looking to transform what is stopping you from living ‘freely’.  How can you release repression?  How can you increase being in a relaxed and natural state, without being self-conscious?  You will be put to the test when Pluto stations direct on the (September 26th).

Near the end of the month Mercury stations retrograde on the 28th, bringing with it miscommunication issues which may transpire. The key again is to open the mind to what the universe is trying to show you? With this particular retrograde, we are looking at the values that we hold within the self. One will need to look deep into their mind, and the layers within the subconscious mind to find the truth, to find what is working for them and what is not.  It may not be suggested to communicate this right away, but rather to create a plan that allows you to integrate your personal worth. More on Mercury retrograde in the Month of May and how to integrate this experience. For now, BE open, feel the rebirth of the earth that is transpiring and allow transformation to be your guiding force!

Experiences don’t create our Beliefs… Our Beliefs create our Experiences!

believeWe often live with the expectation that our experiences seem to dictate our beliefs; that everything that ‘happens’ to us creates, proves or justifies what we believe about the world. However, it is what we believe that is creating our experiences and until we accept this, until we look at the underlying belief we have about our experiences, we continue to add energy to our story that our beliefs are justified because of our experience. We get caught in a loop of justifying to the world why these things keep happening to us and reliving all the experiences that validate what we feel, but we are just adding to this energy to recreate more of the experiences we have.

Does this make sense?

I had a belief about fairness in this world, that it is unfair, and the world would prove this through my experiences – including the betrayals that I perceived ‘happened to me’. However the truth is I believed (like many if not all of us do) that I am separate from God as in: God is there; I am here. Therefore I felt separate and alone so I would experience abandonment. And usually some of the bigger experiences of abandonment would include betrayal. I would relive all the abandonment experiences because I had to prove that the world was unjust, scary and unfair, and continue to build on this, my story.

Ultimately what needed to change was for me to understand the underlying fear of separation that led to me believing the world wasn’t safe and, instead, to find Trust and Faith in God/Source/Universe. Learning to trust wasn’t about the ‘other’ person abandoning or betraying me because the outside influence couldn’t really change – or my perception of the outside couldn’t change – until I could identify from a Soul level who I was and then to change or accept what I was believing within me first. Who I was needed to come from a Soul level. I needed to identify the underlying message my Soul had been guiding me towards.

The amazing piece of this is that my Soul has been guiding me through my beliefs, through my perceptions of my experiences, and through my understanding of who I am at a Soul level. My Soul has been reminding me that everything is in Divine Order and everything is perfect for our Soul’s growth. This means that every false belief, every perceived heartache, is pushing us towards our Soul’s Purpose.

We are like this giant jigsaw puzzle, every experience, every choice, every trigger, and everything that happens and that we react to, is our Soul guiding us to grow and allowing us to align from the inside, to connect to our ‘pure essence’, and to remember who we are. Nothing that happens is a mistake! Isn’t that amazing? Our Soul is guiding us every step on this journey – even when we feel very disconnected and separate. It is all part of the ‘bigger plan’ that we set up to assist us to remember.

However, we still need to piece all the jigsaw together to get a clear picture of what we believe and this sometimes seems a little difficult because when we hurt we are pushed towards making the pain stop and this is so commonly done through distracting ourselves with any one of our many addictions: TV, alcohol, drugs, sex, food etc. These distractions do not really clear anything  up  but rather they often create more struggle and pain until we can pay attention to our Soul guiding us.

It is unfortunate that we only grow through struggle and pain – and of course even that is a choice. In fact the more awake we become the less struggle and pain we need to remind ourselves and the more we connect with our Divine Essence, the less time it takes to embrace who we are.

So how do we navigate through our beliefs to uncover our Truth? We all kind of accept the theory that we are all One, that we come from Source, that everything is energy – including ourselves, and that ultimately we all came from Source. So, when we come up against a belief like the one in which we are always ‘abandoned’ and have all these experiences to prove it, then we should know this isn’t ‘truth’!

So if that is the case – and you can accept this basic concept: that we all come from Source – then the error must lie within, not outside ourselves. Source, after all, wouldn’t make us or anyone else imperfect, nor are we victims to these outside beliefs. Therefore it is probably within the aspect of us that is man-made, our Ego, not our Soul. It is our fears, that come from our Ego, that block us from seeing our truth. It is the Ego that insists on analyzing, fixing, changing everyone and everything outside of ourselves and if we are completely unable to do this we often then blame everything on ourselves – sometimes after we have failed at blaming everything on those people and things outside of ourselves. So when we blame things on ourselves, it’s an inside belief that we aren’t good enough to be loved, aren’t worthy or some similar belief around feeling separate and alone in the world!

It is the Ego that tries to make everything that is happening in our world as happening to “us”, because our Ego has personalized it. But these are not ‘truth’: things that happen are not actually happening to us, they just happen. We give them the power to affect us and we view them in a certain light based on what we believe. We create our experiences from our Beliefs.

It is our Soul’s gift to guide us by shining the light on what we are here to BE. And our tests come from how we define our experiences. An example is my perception of betrayal that is really helping me understand my issue of ‘safety’ and ‘trust’. I needed to experience all this abandonment and betrayal for me to come into alignment with my Soul’s guidance – knowing that my Soul will always guide me towards my path of BEing. So no matter what happens my Soul is safe and I can trust that all is in Divine Order. Even my recent discomforts with my health have been to remind me that this journey isn’t to change what happens but to embrace what I have been learning and give it a voice. This journey here is to connect with that Infinite knowledge and Bliss within me and to share it with the world – in whatever capacity that looks like. It is my constant desire to connect within that brings me to a state of expansion and LOVE. It reminds me of the exuberance I AM! It has allowed me to uncover deeper gifts and a feeling of BEing with my Soul.

I invite you to listen to all the beliefs you have and uncover the Magic that lies within when you can connect and are gently guided towards your own unique Soul’s Purpose, the Essence of YOU! Your Soul is guiding you to become Who you are, and assists you to create your own inner beliefs so you can embrace your experiences with an Open Heart.

March Newsletter 2016: Purpose!

Happy Spring Equinox!

lightApparently March is going to come in like a Lion tomorrow, with the Winter we have had, I guess that is ok. We’ve been incredibly lucky this year. Although, we are just about to enter into the first set of Eclipses this month, more below and on our show aired today with Nancy Arruda from Universal Sky.

Spring Equinox is when we gain the most daylight, this month we will gain over 90 mins to our day, it is Solstice when time slows down the most. I always love Spring, even if we didn’t have much of a winter, it brings with it New Beginnings. This month I wanted to focus on Purpose, it’s a fascinating topic, hope you enjoy it.

Jean Adrienne and I are continuing our Heart-Based Support Group and it has been a lot of fun! It includes 4 calls each month for a low price of only $50 per month or if you sign up for 3 months you can continue the low price of $44 per month.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:

Spring is just around the corner! We all look forward to experiencing spring, but before we can, we must first complete, let go and release…the winter?!  If only it were that easy, to simply just allow the seasons to change without having to do any personal or internal changes.  But this month we are in for a time of releasing, completing, and letting go.

There are two eclipses taking place in the month of March.  Eclipses are a time of releasing and letting go.  Many people have difficulty during this time as it challenges our status quo.  It challenges us into embracing some form of change, which can be scary at times.  Depending on our level of attachment to what we are being asked to let go of, depicts how difficult the eclipse will be.  If one is highly attached to something staying the same, then it will be more challenging.

The Total Solar Eclipse takes place on March 8th, 2016 at 8:54 PM EST at 18° of Pisces 55 min.  Here our Soul challenges us to evolve on a level that may not be conscious to us.  One may seek answers to questions that lie in their own personal shadows, answers that lie deep within the sub-conscious natures of the self.  How is one to identify with the knowledge that lies deep within the mind, deep within the Soul?  It is best to meditate and ponder on what you may wish to discover. Only you can decide what is worth further investigation. Upon completion of discovery, you are given the power to align, or misalign with your truth. That is totality your choice. Are you ready to listen to the harmonic sound of the Universe (AUM) ???

The Lunar Eclipse transpires on March 23rd, 2016 at 8:00 AM EDT at 03° of Libra 17 minutes.  With this eclipse, we release relationship dynamics that are not in alignment with the desires of our heart center. We are being asked to connect to the wholeness within the self.  How can you connect to the self on a whole new level?  How can one connect to the desires of their heart, to identify with what stops them from connecting to the heart? Look through the ego directly to your spirit, directly to the part of you that desires balance, truth, and wisdom. We are being asked to connect to our inner passions, those passions that reside deep within your heart center, deep within your spirit. What must you release in order to make this connection? This connection to self, which in turns allows you to connect with other at a much deeper level.

Embrace the changes that are before, embrace the changes that are within you!  For more information on the month of March… Listen to News from the Heart with Laurie Huston as she speak with me on What’s up in the Universal Sky!

Purpose:

worldlightLately, the idea of ‘Purpose’ has been in my line of focus (I completed a show with Tom Campbell on Purpose). Purpose is this interesting concept that we have. We believe that our purpose is somehow tied up with our identity. So we have this grandiose concept of ‘what we do’ is ‘who we are’. What I mean by this is that we identify with what we do, what our ‘work’ is as part of our identity. And we also believe that as we define ourselves by what we do, our ‘purpose’ is somehow linked to our work. And our ‘purpose’ is our Soul’s Purpose. Our ‘purpose’ is ‘Who we are’, what our Soul has decided to work on in this life.

We also look outside ourselves for assistance to uncover this elusive ‘purpose’ in hopes that someone else can direct us to our living our highest potential and our new ‘work’ will be reflected within this discovery by someone outside ourselves. I always find it amazing that we put our hopes in another’s hands to tell us what our whole life has been telling us.

Every core issue is uncovering our ‘purpose’! Every dream and turn we have made in our lives has been to right us on the path of discovery of Who we are. What we chose as our higher education – even for those who were pushed by their parents into their unfulfilled or chosen field. How we live our lives. Every relationship. All these have helped us uncover this potential of Who we are!

The problem of course is that we often are not our ‘authentic’ self and we are looking outside ourselves for our validation in hopes of discovering this ideal. As Tom Campbell suggests our Purpose is to Grow-up and BE Love.

A crystal child in the book “Communication with Children of Now” by Meg Blackburn Losey suggests we have two purposes: a major purpose is to ‘make a difference’ and the other purpose is to enjoy the game. Tom has added to the major purpose of this crystal child to not make ‘making a difference’ the goal, but to be motivated to BE caring and compassionate to others. This may seem like a subtle difference but if you are just doing things like volunteering because it’s the ‘right’ thing to do because it will make a difference in this world, then you aren’t doing it from your heart. Which means eventually you will bring your ego into this process, you will resent that some people get paid, that people are ‘doing it wrong’ and you will try to fix, change, or manipulate the ‘service’ and eventually be very unfulfilled and resentful because your ego is taking over your volunteer work. Offering to do volunteer work because you love it, because you want to care for others, and because you are a compassionate person means you will enjoy it without involving your ego.

Our purpose really isn’t this elusive ‘thing’ that we do or have to discover. It is the Gift of Who we are! It may carry over into our work but our work isn’t what defines us. In fact, we could fulfill our purpose in everything we do. If we are BEing authentic, if we are BEing ourselves then we naturally are our work. Meaning, someone who is a ‘leader’ will be learning all their lives about leading. They would have had early experiences of both good and bad examples of leading; they would have done both good and bad examples of leading; and they will lead wherever they are or in whatever they do. We don’t just all of a sudden have someone tell us our ‘purpose’ and we have nothing to do with this information.

However, we may not be aware of our ‘gifts’ consciously and this is often because we don’t always have an unbiased view of our world. And we are usually attached to BEing a certain way.  So it is possible that we haven’t seen that from our childhoods we have always loved to communicate, that we have always been very social and extroverted, or that we have always enjoyed writing stories, blogs and exploring other ways to communicate. However, it should be no surprise that our purpose is to communicate because we have had many examples in our lives and probably ‘communicating’ is a large part of the lessons you are learning in your life. Do you see how this works? Our purpose is who we are and what we are learning in this life.

And if we are not be able to see what we do best our friends and family can often be the ones who can tell us what or who we are.

One of the ‘gifts’ in this life is uncovering the magic that lies in our lessons, in our struggles, and in our choices that we have made in our relationships. Experiencing this magic helps us free up so much energy and love within us. Remembering ‘who we are’ is so empowering when we can discover it ourselves when we find the magic in our lessons. And so it is important to know that all the struggles, pain and fears we have endured are part of the process of uncovering our Gifts and Purpose. And when we realize that this is all part of the Divine plan to own who we are and to live our Purpose it frees us from the struggle!

I invite you to find a way to BE who you are and express your Gifts through your Purpose in life. Then we can do the secondary purpose the young crystal child saw, which is to finally have FUN and enJOY the game of life!

Happy New Year 2016!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:

Happy New Year and Welcome to 2016! This year we are working with a nine vibration. It is a year in which we are focusing on completion of karma through service and evolution. Take some time to look and journey within as you become the seeker in search of the Source. Through the numerology (conscious 9 and unconscious 18) and tarot (The Hermit and The Moon) we are infusing the vibration of Virgo (Chiron) and its opposite energy of Pisces. Astrologically we can look at the North Node in Virgo and South Node in Pisces this year. This also means that some of the eclipses this year will also be in Virgo / Pisces in which we will be clearing and moving thought some karma on many different levels. This is a year to integrate spiritual understanding in the physical reality. It is time to bridge the spiritual and physical realities as you focus on being of service to the self and others. Keep in mind that you may need to develop boundaries of compassion and empathy as you learn who and when to share those qualities with.

January starts with Mercury moving into the sign of Aquarius, opening up our minds to original and unique ideas. It does not stay there for long as Mercury will station retrograde on Jan 5th at 01 Degrees Aquarius 02 minutes. With this particular Mercury Retrograde, we are looking at what ideas we have concretized into being. As it stations direct on Jan 25 at 14 Degrees Capricorn 54 minutes, we are looking to the past and the future to realize how these ideals have supported not only us, but our future generations as well.

Mars moves into the sign of Scorpio on Jan 3 asking you to dive deep into your being. Your inner warrior emerges, so direct how you use this energy wisely.
Jupiter (ancient ruler of Pisces) stations retrograde on Jan 7 at 23 Virgo14 minutes. Jupiter the planet of expansion is going to be stationing retrograde asking us to look within. There may be some karmic experiences that are activated during this time, asking you to integrate the healing necessary so that you can hold onto your sense of innocence. As Jupiter moves thought the sign of Virgo he is activating the lessons and the learning’s for 2016. Remember being of Service.

The New Moon takes place on Jan 9th at 19 degrees of Capricorn 13 minutes. This particular new moon is asking you … “How can you do what needs to be done to effect a different outcome? Where do you need to align with your integrity so that you can create your success?” Keep in mind right action and the use of personal will is necessary.

The Full Moon in January takes place on January 23rd at 03 degrees of Leo 29 minutes. This moon has us looking to our ego and our spirit. Can you tell the difference between the two? They both reside within the heart chakra, one frees us and one keeps us bound. When you align to the higher vibration of your spirit you can accept what you have achieved in life. If you find you are connecting to the dramatization of your ego, then you must ask yourself… “What are you trying to prove to yourself?” Look within to find the answer to that question.

BEcome your Gifts!

newyearmessageWow. Another year has gone by. While channeling a message for our Heart-Centered Support Group I received a message that this year is all about uncovering our ‘Gifts’. As we contemplate who we are and become more authentic we get to step into our truth and we begin to see who we truly are from a perspective of BEing instead of what we Do. And what does that mean for us? It means that we are in an authentic state of BEing which is who we are – and this is our ‘gift’ to the world.

So it seems that this year – as it probably should be every year – the theme will be uncovering our ‘true gift’ and we may have many opportunities to rediscover this truth. Often we learn through challenges so remembering our ‘gift’ will make this an exciting journey and the challenges will not seem as difficult – as long as we are open to seeing. We may have many opportunities to see how we feel when we aren’t BEing our authentic selves but as we remember and share our authenticity with the world we will BEcome more aligned and will feel excited to share our ‘gift’ with the world.

Where we may experience challenges this year will be around the parts of ourselves where we aren’t being authentic. This year, since the goal will be to BEcome our authentic selves and share our ‘gift’ of ourselves to the world, we will have opportunities to see where we aren’t BEing ourselves. These will be the areas where we are holding onto suffering. Our natural state and gift will never be to suffer. Suffering is a ‘human’ quality and is caused when we are holding onto something that is no longer healthy such as when we hold onto feelings about past relationships or we hold onto emotions within our current relationships.

An example of holding onto emotions might be when we hold onto anger which is usually attached to a person or to an event connected to a person. As I have said many times: anger isn’t a primary emotion. So when we hold onto anger we have another emotion being completely suppressed. And any negative and suppressed emotion that we hold onto suggests that we haven’t forgiven that person. To ‘let go’ we have to forgive! We not only have to forgive the other person but we have to forgive ourselves. When we suffer – because we are holding onto unexpressed emotions – we can’t move on to healthier relationships either.

So I believe that we will be learning ‘forgiveness’ this year as this is the only way to truly let go and move into our authentic state to express our ‘gift’! To fast track this I suggest that you make a list of the areas in your life or the people in your life where you aren’t BEing authentic, where you are feeling the challenges, where you feel that you are suffering. Think of the people you feel stuck with: people at work, family or friends – people who you just can’t seem to forgive. These people will be highlighted for you this year so that you can move into your more authentic self. This process doesn’t have to be difficult – as long as you can forgive.

There are a number of ways to forgive people: putting yourself in their shoes, having compassion for them, or thinking of ways to be grateful for them. Think about the people on your list and apply any of these ideas on forgiveness. See how it works for you. And it is okay to remember that often we hold onto different grudges because there is a deeper core issue being triggered.

For me I have figured out that my biggest trigger is around not feeling supported. The people in my life who have triggered this the most are my family and I find it most difficult to forgive them. However, because not feeling supported is a very deep trigger for me it is not always apparent when I get triggered by that feeling. Once I can see that whatever it is that has ‘triggered’ the feelings in me is around ‘support’, I am able to consciously acknowledge my ego and my wounded inner child. Then I can offer the support to my ego and to my inner child that I have never felt from my family. And I can also acknowledge the support I have in other areas of my life so that I can ‘discuss’ with my ego that my belief isn’t true that ‘I’m never supported’.

Eventually, once we have truly forgiven from our gut – where our need is to feel safe – and from our heart – where our need is to trust – we will no longer be triggered the same way. For me it is an ongoing process!

Since this is a theme throughout the year I invite you to contemplate the ‘gift of yourself’ – the ‘gift’ of you without suffering, the ‘gift’ of you as a person who has forgiven others so that you can be authentic. As we move into the New Year how you would like to BE and what is your authentic ‘gift’ to the world? Once you remember who you are then practice BEing this from within yourself. Any time that you are taken out of this practice in BEing there will be something to contemplate. What triggered you to take you out of your authentic state? Who triggered you and what events lead up to you being taken out of authenticity?

And as part of your ‘practice’ in BEing take time each morning this year to connect with the Divine Spark within your heart, grounding it in the Heart of the Planet and then connecting it upward to the Heart of Source. This will create a space where you can get centered and where you can set your intentions for the day. It is also a space where you can contemplate your authentic self – and give forgiveness to those for whom forgiveness is required … for your own authenticity and ‘gifts’ to shine.

May your Dreams be realized in 2016 and may you have the Awareness to nurture this highest vision within! Happy New Year!

Nov Newsletter 2015: Masks we wear!

fallHappy American Thanksgiving!

Well October proved to be a lot more intense than we originally expected. Everyone’s fears came up to meet them and then some! For me it was Halloween evening, a sad day, when the veils were so thin, my dear brother slipped easily into the light, letting go of all his pain and suffering as he went. However, it was too quick a loss for those left behind. My only grace was being there with him, my sister and one of his sons. We all experience grief and fears and we just need to remember that even in death it allows just another gift and opportunity to heal! And Jean Adrienne channeled a perfect message about why grief is so difficult (last night’s Heart Centered Support Group call) we feel the connection to ‘home’ that we miss so dearly!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
The beginning of this month is all about growth.  You may already be feeling it, the poke, the push, the nudge to get you up, and moving.  Are you sitting too comfortably?  Are you being forced out of your comfort zone?  Oh, yes, Jupiter opposite Chiron (November 3rd, 2016) is asking you to grow through healing.  Can you see the truth before you eyes?  How can you move forward with strength and courage?  Step outside of your comfort zone to see what is prohibiting you from expanding.  What do you need to heal so that you can evolve and expand the nature of your true talents?  You will be thankful for this experience once the growth has been attained.  Jupiter inconjunct Uranus (November 5, 2015) is asking us to let go of the old in order to embrace the new.  Release old visions and goals that are no longer working, so that you can embrace your new path.  This can be difficult or exciting; it all depends on your perspective.

As we move to mid month, it is suggested that you follow your hunches.  Psychic and intuitive experiences seem to be in the forefront . On November 18 as Neptune stations direct, it is asking you “what do you need to do in life?”.  How is your soul projecting you forward as it pertains to being truthful to the self?  As you serve humanity, while honouring the self, how are you being born again?  Neptune may be confusing us at this time but raise above the confusion so that you can understand how your soul is asking you to master the illusion of life.

Towards the end of November, there is a desire to create as Chiron stations direct (November 26th).  After such a confusing connection to the soul aspect and your path of service to humanity, one must rely on their own subjective natures to guide their current pathway.  Now that Chiron has stationed direct, we are being asked to disconnect from our souls guidance and subject our self to our personal, individual, and instinctive nature as you create your desired reality.

Enjoy the month of November, and for more insight into the energy of this month, Listen to “News from the Heart” with Laurie Huston and Nancy Arruda as they discuss the astrology of November and December 2015.

masksWhat Masks do you wear?

As we just completed the Halloween holiday my attention was focusing on the masks we wear! I completed an interview with Tom Campbell recently and masks came up as a theme. I feel that this ‘masks’ theme will also be covered with Christopher Papadopoulos Nov 10th airing Nov 16th.

One of my thoughts around this theme is that we wear masks all the time as we try to be – or hope to be – someone other’s will like and appreciate. You know the masks I’m talking about: the ‘family’ masks we wear to try and please others in the family; the ‘relationship’ masks we wear to our significant other so that they won’t ‘leave us’; the ‘work’ masks we wear when we dislike our job/co-worker/boss etc. We find all sorts of different ways to wear a mask believing that our masked self is who people want to see. The problem is if we wear a mask long enough we get stuck in it. We can’t be authentic by dropping the masks to the people we know well and maybe even love because how do we change now after having worn the mask so long? Or we may forget our authentic self completely and just keep wearing the masks!

Another thought I had about masks as we celebrated Halloween is that people can often be more authentic when they dress up and participate in Halloween. We also do this with alcohol and vacations. Why is it we can feel comfortable BEing our authentic selves with some makeup to hide who we are, with some alcohol to give us courage to BE who we are, or with a vacation where we can experiment with pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones into our authentic selves or is it just because we are in a different place where no one knows us so we are able to BE our authentic selves?

Fear is the problem that we try to resolve through masks and it is courage that we require to free us from our masks or fear. Fear definitely is the culprit that helps us create our masks. We are afraid that we aren’t enough as we are and that we must be nicer, friendlier, and more aloof to hide our insecurities. And ultimately we are trying to be happier to please other people so that they will ‘like’ us and not ‘leave’ us!

The thing with happiness is that it isn’t something we can pretend. And it isn’t something outside of us. It comes from our ‘BEing’ level! It comes from who we are authentically. If fear prohibits us from being Who we are, authentically, and courage is what will eventually allow us to be our authentic self, then why are masks used to make us feel safe?

I believe what happens is that we are unconsciously driven by our fears and we eventually walk around like sleepwalkers, unaware that we pretend to be someone else. As children we were naturally authentic and often didn’t care about what others thought of us but this fear crept in as we were disciplined and punished for BEing who we are. It became so ingrained in us to BE this person who would win approval that we kept on the masks that won approval and this ‘stuck’ on us and we became the masked person and forgot our authentic self.

We experiment with different masks on occasions such as Halloween, or in alcohol-infused situations, or on vacations and we have more courage, and as a result are more authentic, with these masks on. It is also probable that people use Halloween (masquerade) parties, alcohol and drugs, and even vacations to distract themselves from feeling uncomfortable about their lives as well as to give themselves courage. These distracting behaviours can be expressions of addictions and although I’m not going to delve into our ‘addictions’ in this article it is still worth mentioning because it is fear that pushes us to resort to addictions just as it is fear that makes us reach for masks.

I believe we want to experiment to remember who we are. And as we experiment we feel like we don’t have to worry that others will judge us when we wear an actual mask on Halloween or when we are ‘under the influence’ of alcohol, or are on vacation when we won’t be recognized and won’t be seeing again the people we meet. Ultimately these occasions assist us to feel safe BEing who we are.

So how can we remove our masks and be more authentic just as we may be on Halloween, under the influence of alcohol, or on vacation? I believe it will only happen when we are aware of what we are truly afraid of and breathe into our fears to see that they aren’t real but only part of our ‘story’. It can only happen if we choose to authentically feel into our bodies instead of avoiding feeling uncomfortable. It will happen when we get quiet and connect to the ‘now’ moment and with our body’s innate wisdom. It will happen when we feel safe inside enough to BE who we are. It will happen when we practice BEing our authentic self and not worrying about feeling judged for BEing who we are!

We can do this and perhaps instead of seeing these masks as a distraction we can allow our awareness of these masks to transport us towards our growth. And we can allow our Halloween experiences and our ‘vacation time’ to magically carry us into new opportunities to practice BEing authentic. Let’s have fun with this and celebrate our uniqueness!

October Newsletter 2015: What if…?

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween!

halloweenHasn’t September flown by quickly? It’s fall and we in Canada are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and then at the end of the month, it is Halloween! The clocks turn back November 1st, to celebrate Halloween this year! Did you survive the Magical Super Full Moon Eclipse last week? Some very intense energies for sure! Our lake still is experiencing the closeness of the moon to the planet.

Jean Adrienne and I are continuing our Heart-Bassed Support Group and it has been a lot of fun! It includes 4 calls each month for a low price of only $50 per month or if you sign up for 3 months you can continue the low price of $44 per month.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
The year is soaring by, weeks feel like days, hours feel like seconds.  Where has the time gone?  We have entered into the fall, the season of death, transformation, and rebirth.  On Sept 23 (EDT) the Sun moved into the sign of Libra, instilling a need of balance.

Love, love, love… Libra is also all about love, relationships, and harmony!  Libras ruling planet, Venus moves into the sing of Virgo on October 8 allowing us to shift our focus onto practical relationships.  The key to remember is do not impose any expectations on your partnerships, especially expectations of perfection.  Instead, focus on having some juicy detailed analytical conversations that stimulate the mind!

We start the month of October with Mercury retrograde in the sign of Libra.  Mercury stationed retrograde on September 17.  I have noticed major scheduling conflicts.  Remember to double and triple check everything that you are booking now, as well as, anything you are scheduling for the future.   The confusion continues until he stations direct on October 9.  This particular retrograde cycle has us focusing on repairing the link between the unconsciousness and the ego consciousness.  The key is to identify with the divine light that is found within the self.  There is a delicate balance to attain within the self.  Can you see that balance?  Can you embrace the harmony?

The annual Nodal Shift is taking place on October 9th.  The North Node moves from the sign of Libra into the Sign of Virgo, shifting the focus from relationship growth to being of service.  It is time to get grounded, practical, and bring some order to chaos.  Take a look at your routines, how can you focusing on being more present and in the now?

Personal planets are interacting quite a bit this month, but there are two transitional planet aspects that are wroth mentioning before the Sun shifts into the Sign of Scorpio.

On October 11th, Jupiter favours Pluto in a trine, allowing one to strike a much needed balance when it comes to your goals.  Do you understand that if you are focused on directing your personal power in a beneficial way, you can create the life you desire?  Open up to experience some fabulous beneficial energy.  Can you see the opportunities that are coming your way?  Embrace them!

On October 22nd, Saturn is interacting with Uranus in a way that may stimulate a bit of a challenge.  Your mission, should you choose to embrace it, is, persistence.  Incorporate changes that need to transpire within your life, this does not have to be fast and aggressive unless…you choose not to embrace the mission!  If you attempts to explore new directions are being challenged, there may be a reason!  Take a look at what it is you are trying to create and find that fine line of integration!

It is time to let go, embrace the changing seasons and the changing reasons, as the Sun moves into the transformational sign of Scorpio on October 23rd.  Feel the intensity that lays beneath the surface, there is a depth there waiting for exploration.  Explorations of the unknown underworld, as you travel into your heart and discover a true passion that lies within it!  Do you dare to go into the dark and discover the light?  enJOY!

 What if…?

whatif.We discussed a lot of sabotage this month, the month of change. September has been exciting and exhausting all in one. In my new Heart-Based Support Group with Jean Adrienne we have been discussing Sabotage. In a channeled message I did the question was asked ‘What if you knew that your spiritual growth was a given’? What if you knew that no matter what you did it would all turn out ‘perfectly’ and all the things that happen and all the things that you feel you have done wrong were all ‘perfect’ and in alignment with your higher purpose?

If you could be assured that no matter what happened or what you did, that everything was going to be okay, would that change how you are living your life? What about all the things we do to sabotage ourselves and our happiness… what if you knew that none of that mattered?

All the things you believe you were wrong about, felt regret over… all the wasted energy you have given over your diet, your relationships, your finances, your fears, and all of your suffering… what if it was all just a figment of your imagination… created with your ‘thinking mind’ and contributed to ‘your story’ that has spun everything out of control? Would this change how you live your life? Could you breathe and relax about your life? Could you take some time and enJOY the moments you’re experiencing in your life?

What if you could see into your future and connect with the Being you become and she or he could tell you or show you that it all worked out? Would you change; could you be more relaxed?

You CAN do this! There are many ways to achieve this. Opening your heart, connecting to the divine, listening to a channeled message of a divine being… these are ways to know that everything is going as you contracted your life to unfold.

What if you knew that the only thing we need to do is make choices and these choices are simply either towards love or towards fear?

I remember seeing the 1991 movie ‘Defending Your Life’ with Albert Brooks and Meryl Streep. In this movie Albert is a sad man who made many poor choices all on fear and he has to go to ‘life court’ to defend why he made so many choices in fear. The movie was actually quite brilliant as it discusses our choices and whether we are ready for a higher place. The Meryl Streep character made spectacular choices and Albert’s character had to fight to move on. The lesson seems to be, in the movie and in life, that no matter what choices you have made in the past you can always change and move towards love. And we are guaranteed our evolvement.

I remember a past group I was involved with that, as most groups do, try and make you believe you are special and that you will move on to a better place and that someone close to me was looking forward to moving back into Source. But that isn’t the purpose of our life! Our purpose is to make choices and to continue growing towards love. Our real purpose is to choose LOVE!

So why then are so many of our choices based on fear? Why do we do things, how do we do things, even when do we do things so often based on fear? It’s time to make new choices. It’s time to stay present and get out of our busy monkey mind. When we are present and less mentally active we are more able to connect to our hearts, to our soul, and to our purpose! We make better choices this way and we realize that everything is okay even when our mind wants to tell us something else such as when our mind wants to reinforce our ‘story’ that keeps us stuck in fear.

So… what would you do differently? Would you find ways to hear the gentle guidance of your heart and soul, listen to the absolute knowing that everything is perfect?

Move towards love knowing that we can stop sabotaging ourselves and stop worrying that we are wrong or that we are a victim in this ever-changing world? Will you just relax into the flow and choose how you want to respond to life? I invite you to consider this possibility and change how you respond to the world – especially after this incredible Super Full Moon Total Eclipse these past few days! Our world is changing! And our Spiritual Growth is a Given.

Sept Newsletter 2015: Choices at Trigger Point!

Happy Equinox!

ID-100220477Can you believe it is Sept next week? This time of the year we think of new beginnings associated with school beginning. Here at Intuitive Soul, Jean Adrienne and myself are beginning a new ‘Heart Based Support Group’ on Sept 8th @ 8pm EST so the west coast can join in the fun. I also have become a published author in a joint venture with Jean Adrienne and our Realities of Creation teleclass. 9 wonderful women have created a book that we were each responsible for a chapter. My chapter was on the ‘Power of the Heart’. For more information on our Heart Based Support Group or to join now please go here.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
I always look back, before I can move forward! Movement, inspiration, healing and planning.

Jupiter experienced its annual shift on August 11, as he moved into the sign of Virgo. Moving from an expanded heart into the mind; analyzing, exacting, and extracting. There is a bit of a contradiction within these two vibrations. Jupiter desires to expand beyond its limits to see the big picture, but while in Virgo, he is focusing on the details in life. There is a big focus on the little details. This makes me think of the eagle; a creature who can fly at great heights, while noticing the smallest and tiniest movements below.

The Sun shifts into Virgo on August 23, changing from the desire for love expansion into healing. Some may be healing the heart, allowing one to repair from the disappointments they may have encountered. When we expand and focus on the heart, being in love, attaining love, we must first remove what is stopping us from being in this heart centered place. As you do, you heal and Virgo, the healer is here to assist us in repairing any damage that has been done on a heart level. Keep your heart open as you heal. Do not close your heart. In order to heal, you must remain open, open to the possibilities, open to the experience and remain open to love.

One way to identity, the healing that is required it to be open to new experiences, ones that take you out of your comfort zone.  Ones that have you facing tiny fears which in turn are actually larger then you realize. Face the fears, move forward, and allow more love to flow through you, that is healing, that is the goal!

Starting in September one can relate in new ways. Yes, Venus is still retrograde, but as it conjuncts Mars, there is new potential in your relationships. Those relationships are starting to shift into new ways of  BEing. Then on September 6th, as she stations direct, one will be able to understand the dynamics that are taking place within their relationships. Can you see what you are /have attracted in your relationship and why?

Mercury will station retrograde on September 17. This particular Mercury retrograde takes place at 15 degrees Libra 55 minutes, which is focusing on repair. One may wonder what they are repairing in their life, but on some level this is a similar vibration as healing. The repair that is transpiring has to do with repairing the link from the unconscious mind to the ego-conscious. Looking at your behaviours and understanding where they are coming from.  Mercury will station direct on October 7 at 00 degrees of Libra. It is time to start anew! Also on the 17th, Saturn moves back into Sagittarius continuing its journey in that sign for the next two years.

On another note… can you see what is healing in your life? Are you ready to fully release what is stopping you? Stopping you from your true expression? Stopping your from moving fully into operating from the heart at all times? The Solar Eclipse transpires on September 13in the sign of Virgo. Activating the desire to integrate a vibration of wholeness. To be whole, one must release the critical mindset and feelings of solitude. Know that you can identify with your ego-consciousness when it rises to the surface, but do not let it suck you into a dramatic display of fear and worry. Instead, allow your awareness to serve you in the highest light by becoming aware of how the spiritual reality is always there to support our ventures as one works towards embracing the highest good. Our mind is a tool that allows us to survive within this reality, use the mind to heal, use the mind to explore, use the mind with the intention of organizing the right details for the growth of the soul!

The lunar Eclipse takes place on September 27, after the Sun has shifted into the sign of Libra. Our relationships issues are still present, but know that it is time to fully strike out on your own! What do you need to clear, release and let go of so that you can fully move into a place of honouring the self? I am not speaking about terminating relationships, unless that is something that you feel you need to do. But what I am speaking to is, understanding the self in a totality new way. There is a strong desire to reach a higher level of existence. In order to do so, one must first release. Release aspects of the ego as you integrate a higher vibration of your spirit into your heart center. You will need to play and release serious natures that stop the innocence of your spirit from coming out and fully expressing itself. Give yourself permission to simply BE that desired expression of self that lives at the heart. Let your inner child come out to play…remember, we are healing, we are embracing love and one way to do so is through tears, laughter and the expression of innocence!  EnJOY!

 What Choices do you make at your Trigger Point?

This month I want to write about something that has been occurring in my life on a regular basis. People are getting stuck in their lives and falling back on their ‘known’ story and so often such stories are full of drama because of the origin of those stories. This problem is occurring with people who are becoming conscious and honestly sincere in their evolution towards love. I believe that there is a mirror here for me and I’m exploring this as it isn’t just one client and I’m feeling stuck with my clients who are stuck! Oh MY!

I have been involved with several shows on ‘The Story of ME’ and it was the subject of my last blog.  And I have had several more shows since then with Christopher Papadopoulos, Thomas Campbell, and Jean Adrienne where we have also discussed this topic. So, we understand that this ‘story’ is not a representation of our truth, but really our story is from our perspectives that are due to our experiences that come from our egoic thinking mind. It typically has some level of insecurity, lack of self-confidence, inability to forgive or our trying to justify our actions or emotions. But we get stuck in the process and fall back into our ‘stories’!

What I want to explore is the moment we have that will allow us to make an easier shift towards getting out of our heads and into our bodies, heart and gut, where we can make present moment decisions that will not expedite our journey into full drama. That moment where we are first triggered. That moment when we are anxious or first feeling insecure, whatever the initial trigger is. That is the moment when we can head off the full blown drama attack.

So what is our ‘thinking mind’ really doing in that ‘trigger moment’? We’re trying to control and manipulate things so that they are the way we want them to be or believe we want them to be. But really the only thing we have any sort of control over, or have some sense of being in charge of, is our emotions (which our thinking mind doesn’t believe because it doesn’t deal with emotions but only thoughts and the memories of emotions).

So in the trigger moments I always say there is a choice! When that first moment of our trigger happens we can still make a rational choice. But after that we are in full blown attack and our rational mind is nowhere to be seen! Sometimes we just have to ride the wave and hope to come through the drama attack without too much damage.

So what is the choice you ask? It is to acknowledge we are feeling anxious. And to acknowledge that this anxiety creates a deeper fear within us that isn’t based on truth but rather a perceived misunderstanding that has been accepted as truth due to our past experiences. It means we can choose not to do the thing that makes it worse … you know grabbing food to fill the void or doing the thing that has the impact to push you to breaking point. It is the moment we can make a choice before the choice is appearing to be taken away from us. (The choice isn’t really taken away, it just feels like that.) It is that moment when we still have a choice to acknowledge that we are feeling uncomfortable before going over the edge. And if we can bring awareness into that feeling of discomfort we are conscious enough to bring ourselves into the now moment. Christopher Papadopoulos offered an amazing meditation in our last interview on this exact topic, it will allow us to move into our bodies to release the anxious energy. A must listen.

What I have learned from this whole experience was pretty impressive.  One of my longest term clients (and dear friend) who probably has triggered me the most due to the fact that our ‘stories’ are the same [we were both abandoned at a young age] inspired me to look deeper into this. I realized that what our ‘thinking mind’ is really doing is trying to put the blame or projecting the problem onto someone or something else; the closest thing for me is my health; for her it was an ex. These represent what we need to heal or accept within ourselves.

You see, we project our deepest core issues onto others when our core issue is much deeper and goes to a time when we weren’t conscious enough or emotionally mature enough to understand what was happening. I’ve been abandoning myself by making the wrong choices in my diet (filling the void with poor choices) and not being able to build my energy again. My client/friend had been making her issues about someone else when in fact the problem is never someone or something else… it is always our own issue.

So in a way our ego is just helping us heal or accept a deeper truth but our thinking mind goes to lay blame elsewhere! I think this is a normal response. It is just that if we can see the bigger picture then we can understand that our patterns and ‘stories’ were created before the age of 7 – before we were emotionally mature enough to comprehend what was happening, and unable to see that it wasn’t personal. As a spiritual Being we are able to understand mentally most concepts and feel into our emotions but as a child we had no reference point: we could only establish our own misunderstandings. And since we felt dependent on our parents we concluded, from a conceptual basis, this must be love.

To heal these wounds we have had to make different choices… and when we don’t realize that we continue with the same ‘stories’ as created by our young selves. We are unaware that what is happening isn’t just a re-enactment of the same core fear: these incidents continue to play out to assist us to create a different story.

At any point in the process we can create another story, choose to respond differently, see that it isn’t the other person or thing that is the problem but rather a belief we made before the age of 7 that is showing up to help us grow. Can you make the decision then – next time something ‘happens’ to you – to see the ‘bigger picture’ and choose to respond by becoming conscious and present?

July/Aug Newsletter 2015: The Story of ME!

Happy Summer!

How are you enjoying your Summer? For me it has been challenging lately. The energy seems to be erratic, or it may just be that I’m very sensitive and I may already be experiencing Venus Retrograde as I often experience things prior to them going retrograde, while in the shadow phase. I got Strep Throat that lasted over 10 days, and my energy isn’t back to normal yet. However, I have had similar information from many people that the energy has been challenging of late! So, Jean Adrienne and I are in negotiations to create a new Support Group for everyone. We all need authentic support to traverse these times of change. It will be a reasonable way to get the support and tools you need to create the change you want in your life. We will begin in Sept. It will be Tues evenings at 8pm EST to include our friends on the West Coast. It will be $44 per month. We will give you more direct information as we develop the group more!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
This summer we are focused on heart centered relationships.  On July 18th, while the Sun surfs the water’s edge in the sign of Cancer, Venus will be running barefoot on the sand as she connects with the energy of earth, moving into the sign of Virgo.  The focus is practical relationships and personal values.  What are you currently experiencing in your relationships? Where are you noticing a shift in value?

As the Sun moves into the sign of Leo on July 22nd, it is time to play!  Live life with an open heart and creatively express your inner being!!  Can you find the innocence that exists deep within your BEing and express it?

Venus will be stationing retrograde on July 25th.  Asking us to re-explore our heart centered nature, and what lies in the depths of your BEing.  Can you just BE LOVE?

As she stations retrograde at 00 degrees of Virgo 46 minutes, we ponder the power of discrimination.  How much is too much / not enough?  WE discriminate our ability to understand the vibration of love.  The connection one may have with another can be powerful.  What beliefs are being triggered?  Can you see your organic pattern of evolution as it pertains to your ego / spirit / heart center?  Embrace your learning, allow it to flow through you, nourishing your soul, awakening your heart.

An overwhelming power can be felt within you as you tap into this vibration of love.  So powerful that you can feel the fire burning when Uranus in Aries slows down to station retrograde on July 26th.  Tap into the moving stillness and ask yourself…  What are you awakening to?  How is that awakening moving you within?  BE OPEN!  Allow the uncontrollable energy to move you towards the alignment with your soul.

The second Full Moon of the month of July is upon us!  Are you having a “once in a blue moon” kind of experience in life right now?  The Full Moon that takes place on July 31, 2015 is opening up your consciousness to new ways of BEing.  We are at the pre-formation of BEing and understanding what is transpiring within the mental realms.  The corresponding New Moon takes place on August 14 at 21 degrees of Leo 30 minutes.  WE are opening and accessing our consciousness for a reason, one that goes beyond understanding it on an ego level; it is about understanding the Soul.  The true purpose will show itself in time, by stepping out of the box.

Venus will have retrograded back into the sign of Leo on July 31.  Pulling you into the depths of your heart and spirit.  Can you still feel the love?  Allow yourself to experience what you are going through on a heart level; the goal is to awaken you.  Release the ego and experience love.

On August 2nd, Saturn stations direct at 28 degrees of Scorpio 16 minutes.  Saturn, the Karmic Teacher, infusing limitations, and restrictions, is sharing the lessons we need in order to achieve a sense of karmic balance.  Now he is infusing softness into our lives, using unity and love to move forward.  Let go of the resistance, open up and do not define what love means, simply experience it.

Jupiter square Saturn on Aug 3 shows you the difficulty in finding a balance between what you desire on a personal level and your responsibilities.  Both of these planets are interacting with Venus as well (Aug 3/4).  We are focused inwards with Venus retrograde and you may feel like you are being pulled in a couple of directions.  Jupiter is asking you to expand on your values and Saturn is showing you the restrictions.  Find the balance!

The Sun shifts into the sign of Virgo on Aug 23.  Now it is time to get organized and set some priorities!  Enjoy the rest of the Summer

The Stories of ME!

Image courtesy of njaj at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Image courtesy of koratmember at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Since June I’ve been considering discussing this huge issue: the ‘stories we weave’ and how they impact everything in our lives. I have had the great honor of interviewing a new author Christopher Papadopoulos on his book Peace and Where to Find It, twice now (in June and this month, July). He discusses how our ‘thinking mind’ is involved in every moment we are awake. To achieve true Peace we must get out of our minds and into our hearts (sound familiar J). The key to doing this is in his new book. I chose 2 interviews as I wanted to discuss the concepts and then I wanted to discuss the practices.

How does ‘Peace’ fit into the ‘story of me’, you ask? I’m going to explain it. I hope! Our ‘stories’, our ‘identities’, are tied up in our thinking minds, (our egoic minds) and we elaborate on our ‘stories’ every time we maintain being unconsciously caught up in our heads! When we are constantly ‘thinking’ we are creating and cultivating our ‘stories’. You know the identity that is ’us’. It is who we believe we are from our ‘human perspective’. It is the ‘perceived’ image we have about our life … the labels we identify with, how we perceive others and what we believe others think about us! This is the ‘story of me’.

And we use words like ‘always’ and ‘never’ to describe these ‘perceptions’ we have of ourselves. We like to embellish our ‘stories’ and recreate our identities whenever possible. You get the idea … it is who we believe we are when we are caught up in our minds all day long.

However, there is evidence to suggest that our perceptions are not truth, therefore all our judgments about others and how we believe they are judging us, isn’t the truth. Who we tell the world we are isn’t our true essence! When we are in our minds we are stressed, our muscles are tense, and we are constantly ‘doing’ things (including things to distract us from our discomfort and allow for unconscious addictions). When we are in our hearts with our hearts open and when we are in our bodies being aware of our subtle energy and breath … we are present. When we are present, we can BE peace! When we are present, we can change the ‘story of me’ and create from a place of peace, unconditional love, or your true essence.

However, first we have to clearly see our identity and our constant need to think. We need to know that who we perceive we are is our egoic mind, our thinking mind, our story that we have created due to our experiences and our perceptions of these experiences. We need to choose how we want to BE in our lives first and allow our inner feelings to guide us on how we experience the world.

Typically, we get up out of bed and just get caught up in our lives without a thought about how we want to experience it. We become unconscious once we begin ‘doing’ anything: from brushing our teeth, to driving our cars, to working. We tend to live in our ‘thinking heads’ believing this is the only way to get through the day. We are in a constant state of ‘thinking’, ‘doing’, and ‘reaction’! Then we continue through the day thinking about what we did and what we perceived was done to us, finding ways to justify what we did and how we are ‘right’! These are the very ‘stories’ I’m speaking about.

This is not to say that we aren’t here to ‘do’ things… we are, but we are to ‘do’ from a conscious place. Imagine if we not only consciously breathed but consciously ate and ‘did’ things from a conscious state of BEing! This would stop most of our ‘stories’ from continuing and magnifying. We could lie in bed, decide how we would like to feel today, maybe happy, motivated, confident or clear and relaxed… then we connect with how that feels. Once we choose, we can create a connection with that feeling and when we feel ourselves deviating, once life happens, we can make another choice to go back to that ‘feeling’ … or another feeling. And our Heart would be in the driver’s seat.

We could continue to make choices all day on how we would rather feel. Don’t confuse this with visualizations or positive thinking; this is about becoming conscious and aware at all times. Christopher uses the body and I believe this is the key. Whenever we feel ourselves stepping out (you know when sh@t happens or when we are feeling uncomfortable we leave our bodies or exist from the ‘thinking mind’ only) we can become conscious of our body and our breathing and this will ground us back into our selves. Then we don’t add to our story, we can choose create a new one!

Remember I was going to bring Peace into our ‘story’; well peace is our inner state of BEing. It is our true essence that always exists without our perceptions, without our judgments, and without our ‘story of me’. Have a listen to the interviews I have done with Christopher to understand how we both believe that peace comes from within and is not something that we need to ‘work’ on or ‘change’ outside of us … we just need to become conscious. Our ‘stories’ come from us being unconscious and from our thinking minds. We can choose to create a new story to include one where ‘peace’ is our constant state of BEing!

What story would you like to live?

May Newsletter 2015: What’s Your Perception?

Happy May!
ID-10057676

I’m excited to have Nancy Arruda from UniversalSky writing our astrology for the month (we will have a live Hangouts on May 6th @ 1pm EST)! You can find that below. I’m excited that Eric Altman’s Support Group is really gaining momentum and we have created some great shows together. If you are serious about your Journey, and want to bring more “fun” back into your life, I highly recommend joining our support group, or at the very least listening to our shows!

I’m excited that we have finally sprung into Spring! We’ve had some days in the 20’s (70’s Fahrenheit), the trees have buds and the Magnolia trees are just about to bloom… my favorite tree!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
The Month of May, starting with the grounded energy of the Sun Taurus and ending with the duality of the Sun in Gemini!  The highlight this month is not always seen as a ‘highlight’, but rather, what some have come to dread.  Mercury stations retrograde on May 18th, 2015 at 9:49 PM EDT.  Mercury will be stationing Retrograde at 13 degrees of Gemini 08 minutes.  In his ruling sign, the trickster comes out to play, in full force, mixing up communications.  Why do we dread him so much?  He is here to teach us something, something about clarity, and how you are using your consciousness.  How many times do you speak clearly?  Do you think before you speak? Can you clearly define what it is that you desire in life?  Are you clear about everything that takes place in your thoughts?  Do you even pay attention to most of your thoughts going through y our head?  Probably not!  So why get angry when Mercury Retrograde asks you to define and clarify your thoughts or communications?  Why is it his fault?  Lets look at what this particular Mercury Retrograde is asking us… We are being asked to be more conscious.  A desire to transform our consciousness in understanding that we are all interconnected and that we communicate all the time, with the spoken and unspoken word.  What is the unspoken word?  How often do you have a thought only to find someone else is mentioning to you before you do?  Have you ever looked at how you can communicate with someone without even saying a word?  Heightened intuition is coming into play, the question is do you trust your intuition or not?  This Mercury Retrograde is asking you to get clear in your mind.  Think of your thoughts as the unspoken words that others can hear.  Do you want people listening into your thoughts?  Why should you say in your head what you would not want anyone to hear outside of your head?  If you desire to be living in a healthy, light, aligned, spiritual, and integral way, then take a look at your thoughts.  Are they clear?  Are they in alignment with what you desire to create?  Are they serving your highest good? Are they serving your highest aspirations?  This May, it is time to get clear!  Are you ready???

For those of you who would like the technical data… Mercury will enter into its pre shadow period on May 5th!  Start listening to your thoughts…look around you and see how they are manifesting or how they have already manifested!  Mercury will station retrograde on May 18th and station direct on June 11 at 4 degrees of Gemini (still dealing with consciousness and the mind).  Post shadow is complete on June 27th.  What did you learn???

My Inspiration:

ID-10028347This month, I have been reviewing my perceptions and the perceptions of those around me. By perceptions I mean our thoughts about what others or ourselves are believing about what is happening in the world around us. I have noticed that I have been slipping into perceiving incorrectly and I have been bringing it up for discussion. I discussed this first with Jean Adrienne and later Eric Altman and I delved into it.

We tend to get very confused around the two, often separated, views in our world: on the one side we have the views of our ‘human aspect’ or ‘human nature’: the views of the inner child who strives to be right or the ego that creates disharmony in our lives and on the other side we have the views of the more enlightened and evolved ‘higher aspect’ or ‘higher nature’ of ourselves which we call our intuition,  our higher self,  our soul, or our BEing. The human nature, often referred to as the lower nature, doesn’t necessarily view things the same as our higher nature.

The thing that Eric and I discussed at length on my show was that we aren’t two different pieces, higher and lower nature, we are one. What we see as conflicting are aspects of our one nature and each of these aspects is truly just as important as the other. We are human beings that are having a spiritual experience, but we are also having a human experience. We’re not here to choose sides – we are here to find a way to bring them together and make them whole!

People who try to convince us that for us to BE evolved in this world we must transcend the ego are delusional. It is like trying to pretend that we have a million dollars when we can’t pay the rent. It is denying the aspect of ourselves that is here experiencing this world, the emotional richness of this world. The other aspect that is our BEing, our higher nature, is most helpful when we give this part of ourselves the opportunity to participate in a grounded and centered ‘vehicle’, our bodies. To think that we can just fly off to some higher nature world without being grounded and centered is equally delusional. The higher nature and the lower nature are both an essential aspect of our oneness – and every bit as important.

When it comes to perceptions, this is the human aspect of us that comes to light. It is that part of us that feels like we must defend ourselves, prove that we are right, or hide our vulnerabilities by reacting as if we are invulnerable. Whenever we are reacting, we have slipped (or separated) into our humanness and it is best to recognize this. We are human; we need not try to pretend we are anything but. However, to let this human aspect rule our lives is the opposite of what we are desiring – if we want to grow into love. [Laurie, do we want to ‘grow into love’ or ‘grow in love’? There MAY be a distinction here … and … unless EVERY blog refers to love in this way, you may want to introduce the concept of ‘love’ earlier in the article … to set the stage for this … to show that ‘love’ is the goal, the purpose, of all life and living – or whatever the heck love is all about (where’s Tina Turner at a time like this when  we are asking “What’s Love All About?”. BTW: by introducing ‘love’ here … you may want to consider adding it to the latter part of this article.]

When we aren’t recognizing our perceptions then we blame others for how we are feeling. We make our dis-ease into the person opposite us, our job, our employers, our friends and/or our family. We hope that instead of taking responsibility for our discomfort we can displace it onto someone or something else. We are afraid of seeing our own vulnerabilities, our own pain and fears. We have this belief that life is too much of a struggle and to actually touch these waters is to drown in our pain.

Earlier this month in a support group call Eric discussed the idea that “if you aren’t getting what you want then you don’t love yourself”. Therein lies our biggest problem: our lack of self-esteem,  confidence,  and self-love are what create our perceptions about life to go askew. We react from a place of low self-esteem or it may show up as the opposite, arrogance… yet either way it comes from a place of judging self or others. It comes from fear instead of love.

Think of an example where you are blaming someone else for your discomfort. This could be with a lover, and ex-lover, a work colleague, friend, or family member where something has occurred that you have perceived that you were betrayed, hurt, angry about, or where something has “happened” to you. Everything you are feeling in this situation is perception. You have taken something that happened and made it personal and made it about you. Therefore you have placed the blame on someone else for this occurrence, for your feeling this way. You may feel this has made you depressed or contributed to your already low self-esteem. However, no matter what, it is your perception of what has “happened” to you that has created an inner story and likely a story that you have been playing since you were a child.

When a story keeps playing in your life, you know the pattern is there to assist you to evolve towards love. However, what I am inviting you to become conscious about is that what you believed happened is not the motivation of the other people but rather you replaying your story: that in fact, the other person or people involved have their own story replaying in their ego and these people are as caught up as you are; that these people also just want to feel loved; and these people are also reacting to their own story, not trying to play into yours. And that if these people were conscious, they would be able to explain why they did what they did and that it had nothing to do with you.

What I invite you to ponder is what your underlying fear is? What moves you to react? What emotion are you trying to defer, distract or escape from that is the real problem? And if you could realize that by projecting it onto someone else you are not accepting your human side and that diving into this emotion would quickly disperse the fears, the emotions, and, in fact, even the perceptions – once the answers to these questions are identified.

It is never as unpleasant as we believe. It would empower you to see what is real and true. This is just adding to your story and you can discover that all the others that you are blaming, are as innocent as you are … or as human!
