Feb 2018 Newsletter: Contemplating Love

Happy Love Month

Did you feel that Super Blue Full Moon Eclipse yesterday? It was powerful and rare, last one was 150 years ago.

Well, February is always Love Month at Intuitive Soul and this year I was more contemplative than usual. I was told all my blogs are contemplative, but this one felt different. Maybe it was the passing of my first birthday without my mother especially since I was writing my blog on my birthday. I also feel like there is an energy of change occurring that may shift a great deal of change in my life and for the World. Obviously birthday’s make everyone consider our future and we just entered a new year with the Chinese New Year on Feb 16th, the Year of the Dog – so I think it is natural to consider where we are and where we want to BE. Let’s create a list and allow the Eclipse energy of the 31st and the Solar Eclipse on Feb 15th, the New Year and Chinese New Year to Create the Magic you are Desiring this Year.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: Jan 2018

We finished the month of January with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Leo on January 31st, 2018.  We are still feeling the vibration of this eclipse after it transpires. Additionally, We are tapping into feeling the New Moon Solar Eclipse  that takes place on February 15th at 4:05 PM in the sign of Aquarius.

Eclipses are all about releasing, letting go and completing.  Once we have completed something, we start on a new beginning path.  We intensely feel the energy of Eclipses for two weeks before the first eclipse to two weeks after the second eclipse (they always come in pairs and are two weeks apart).  However, keep in mind that the lesson will be integrated for a six month period until the start of the next eclipse cycle.  (This year the next Eclipse cycle starts in July of 2018) In 2018 we are working with the Leo / Aquarius polarity (in July we will also have an third Eclipse in the sign of Cancer, brig forth the lessons around family in 2019).

The month of February is fairly quiet astrologically.  We are still integrating the Jan 31st eclipse into the beginning of the month (releasing what is stopping us from living with an open heart), but we are also being stimulated by the Feb 15th New Moon Solar Eclipse which takes place at 27° of Aquarius 07 minutes.   The sign of Aquarius brings in the concept of Universal Love and Joy.  Pulling in an unconditional love vibration.  How do/can you love yourself unconditionally?  When I think of Aquarius, I associate it to friends, associates, hopes, wishes and dreams!  With Solar Eclipses, we are still focusing on releasing, however there is a gift that can be attained once the lesson is learned.  So its energies are typically about bringing in the newness of a cycle within the self. read more…

Inspiration: Contemplating Love

As I contemplate my birthday today (written on birthday) I wonder about Love Month this year. Each year since I began this blog I have chosen February as Love Month and write something that I hope will inspire you to Love Unconditionally … or choose Love over fear. This has been quite the last couple of years for me with loss and my first birthday without my mother. I know this puts me in a contemplative mood and helps me to wonder about new possibilities. We all aspire to Dream Big on our Birthdays and focus on all the Magic that may transform over the coming year. I know that Love is important to me but it isn’t just the love of another I seek but to also Love Unconditionally and create Acceptance in my Life.

These are my goals this year and I strive to fully embrace this as my State of BEing. It is said, however, that if you are truly ready for a Beloved in your life then the Beloved would show up. So what am I missing if I don’t have that love with another? I feel that Self-Love is the area that I continue to seek clearer understanding. Seeing oneself as a Beloved will attract a Beloved. Tom Campbell says we already ‘Love’ ourselves, but don’t necessarily ‘like’ ourself and he spoke of the problem with narcissism in our latest show. We – or I – focus on areas that I want to fix – my health, my addiction to sugar, my body image. This year I experienced the worst sugar detox flu as I am determined to end my addiction to sugar (as I thought I had many times) and then as soon as that balanced itself out, I managed to put my back out (still not sure how that happened unless it was from a fall 3 days prior?). So my new Fitbit has not completely motivated me as I assumed it would (even though as a piece of technology with promise I love it). And the weather has also been quite temperamental and even the best days we had were NOT the best for my health.

However the point here is that I have been focusing on the areas I want to fix – before I feel ready to embrace myself and another. And this is exactly what I share each month that is NOT the answer. It means I feel I need to fix, heal, change, manipulate or control from a ‘doing’ place and won’t be happy until I have done this. My BEing place knows that I no longer want to BE a sugar addict and I am changing this because it is for my Health and Well-BEing. Nonetheless feeling like I have something wrong with me (an addiction) doesn’t help my self-confidence or help me embrace the Divine Essence within me.

Instead, like many others, I have shame, guilt and embarrassment around my Self and this doesn’t allow me to fully Embrace the Beloved within. I am not seeing the Divine Goddess that I am. Read More…

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on Growing Up with Love

 

Today at noon EST, Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Growing Up with Love. This Love Month Tom begins this conversation discussing Self-Love is better Self-Like to avoid narcissism and the only reason we don’t like ourselves is because we have Ego Fears. That of course most of us have these fears because we collected them from a very early age. Our Ego holds on to our fears and the only way we can grow up is to have the courage to face them. We then discuss Romantic Love and how most people who beleive they are in Love are really in Need. That Love is selfless and it is about Giving. Which means we can’t have an agenda. We can’t need anything, rather we come from a place of acceptance. As soon as we need we aren’t in Love. We also discuss that only one person is required to Love another. As long as the relationship isn’t abusive, and as long as we don’t keep ‘score’ and have a list of what we need from the other person or feel that we are being taken advantage of, then we can Give Unconditionally and it is LOVE! The changes, may not happen over night, but if you are patient and willing to open yourself up to Love and come from a place of Giving we can find the courage to grow and actually have fun. Remember we are here to Grow towards Love not stay stuck in our fears! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

Mar Newsletter 2017: Healing through Dreams & Synchronicities

Happy Spring Equinox!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Inspiration: Healing through Dreams & Synchronicities

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on Live Like Love

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Love Month, Live Like Love. This is a deep conversation about the choices we make around Love in our lives. Our biggest problem is around trying to fix, change, teach or heal others. When we come from this place we are in ego and placing conditions on Love. What we need to do is come from a place of BEing Love. BEing aware of how we can give love, as love is given! We typically have conditions and we are giving love with expectation. We need to understand that when we want something, or expecting or need to validate our need for BEing right, we aren’t “loving”. We also discussed our confusion around Self-Love, really being about liking who we are. This will assist us to understand our fears. Confidence and Acceptance are the only ways to face our fears and evolve towards Love. Accepting who we are, will assist us to understand ourselves and face our fears. Coming from a place of Love will always create what it is we desire most. Join us for this important discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

Feb Newsletter 2017: The Question of Love

Happy Love Month

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Inspiration: The Question of Love

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. Continue reading

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

Happy Summer Solstice!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What would you do… if you Loved Yourself?

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

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

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

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

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

My need within for Divine Health.

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

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

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

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

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