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!

June Newsletter 2014 ~ What are you Resisting?

Happy Solstice Laurie!

Finally, we have some warmer weather and summer solstice is upon us! YAY!! After our long, hard winter, it is nice to feel a bit more free. Free of winter coats and free to open to new possibilities.

So watch your emotions, but let things flow (deep feelings and spiritual vision)! We also experienced a Grand Trine and it is still in the sky this month till the 24th, which has made things slightly easier than the hard Cardnial Cross energies we experienced in April and May and continue for a while, just not as difficult as April.

My Inspiration!
yogasandThis week I interviewed Daniel Bax who suffered what was potentially a life threatening accident and he has become an inspiration for us all in transforming our lives and overcoming obstacles. He has faced the resistance of his body, mind and spirit through his intense life journey and has excelled beyond anyone’s expectations. However, for most of us we have to be ever vigilant and mindful of where and when resistance is taking over our conscious or more often unconscious thought process.

We all require consistent awareness of our present state of BEing. When we are struggling against doing something (like writing a newsletter, or getting up to go for a walk) we need to uncover what our intention is, where our motivation is and whether our resistance is mental, emotional, physical or spiritual. I know what it is like to be depressed and resistant to doing what I know will make me feel better. If I indulge in my depression or my feelings of victimhood or just my low energy, I will not be able to get out of bed. This doesn’t assist me on my life’s purpose or goals. It also doesn’t build up my energy, but keeps it stagnant and doesn’t preclude to my getting any better.

Often our resistance is a gift to understanding what areas of our lives we want to transform to be the best we can be. It may also show us where we are or rather are not and/or how our fears block us. Setting our intentions assists us to be clearer of what we want. When we have resistance we likely have an emotional, physical, mental or spiritual belief that stops us from moving forward. When we have resistance to doing anything, it would benefit us to examine what we are resisting and where the belief is interfering with our intentions. Breathing, as simple as it is, can be the most effective tool we have to opening a pathway through our resistance and change our energetic state. I’m an advocate on BEing vs doing, and often believe that most of our obstacles will occur first at the BEing level. Most of us, from our deepest intention, want to be Happy. That means that no matter what it is we desire, beneath all our desires is the common thread that we just want to be happy. We see a fast car, or a bigger house, or a newer computer as a condition to make us happy. However, happiness comes from within us, not from material or external things. Happiness is an emotional response and can be created from the inside out. So create the intention to BE happy, and let all actions, thoughts, and responses come from our desire to be Happy. If all else fails, when you feel resistance to something, ask yourself what would make you happy right now? Do something to make yourself happy, and then use that emotional response to create the rest of your day.

My other constant belief is that we need to come to a place of acceptance. Sometimes what will make us happy isn’t immediately possible, (like you may want to lose 30-40 pounds right now). We can accept that there is a reason that we are where we are right now, and find a way to be comfortable with where and who you are in this moment. This can be more readily achieved when coming from a state of BEing rather than from berating yourself for being into this state of frustration or depression. We can also look for the gift that what we don’t want is in our lives right now.

Ultimately, it comes down to awareness of our responses to what is happening in our lives and when there are blocks of resistance that prohibits our dreams from being achieved. Learn to BE what it is you desire from within and allow your outside world to reflect your level of BEing. You are ultimately in charge. Instead of focusing on not being where you are, discover the gift that you are offering to yourself with your life the way it is. Now breathe into it and see what opens up to you!
