Today’s Mantra

Been so busy this spring season. Seems like every time I get the inspiration to write, either life takes over or I need some rest first. So, I’m going to make this short and sweet…

I want to share a new mantra that I’ve been working with, saying it several times a day, especially when family drama arises, is:

I align myself with my highest vibrational reality.

It really seems to do the trick to keep my feelings neutral so they don’t interfere with a clearing and healing and forward movement.

Namaste

To The Caregivers

IMG_1445-10-Edit.jpgTo all those who have stepped up, whether as a professional, friend or family member, I bless you.  You are a unique old soul who has heard the call to service and stepped in as a caregiver.  You give of yourself when it counts.  You are there for the good days, bad days and really bad days.  You have received the brunt of blame and anger when there was nobody else around.  You are the safe haven to be told the darkest fears and carefully guarded secrets.

I want to address caregiving from a metaphysical standpoint.  Whether this was a soul contract, a prearranged plan before coming into this life, or it was a confluence of circumstances, being a caregiver is one of the hardest jobs there is.  The challenge of balancing daily grief and still keeping an open heart can be huge.  Sometimes all one wants to do is curl up into a protective cocoon and just go through the motions of the job… or of life.

IMG_1461-20-Edit.jpgThe old standby belief that people get nutty around a full moon has to do with how someone is reacting on subtle energy levels to a change in energy coming to the Earth.  It goes in cycles.  But the energy waves hitting the Earth right now are different, and we are all reacting uniquely.  The waves of energy coming more frequently now are slowly raising our vibrations.  We need to keep ourselves clear of emotional baggage and connect inward to run the energy through us so we can smoothly ride the energy upward.  But, as we are seeing in the world, some can be having a difficult time with the energy and the result is chaotic behavior.  Those with health challenges can be particularly vulnerable to being adversely affected by the energy.  Which can make being a caregiver even more challenging.  Whether they are feeling it more, or there is some short-circuiting going on, I am not sure.  But when an energy wave comes, we all go through a re-alignment and adjust to the new higher vibration, and a caregiver is more likely to be someone who is caring for someone who is having difficulty making the adjustments.

As if one needed anything more taxing on their already well utilized skillset of coping skills.  So, coming from a metaphysical energetic perspective, I give you these little nuggets:

IMG_1446-Edit.jpgIf you are having a day where you are on the receiving end of negativity, you are in a special place in the circuit.  Try not to pass it around to the next person and try to find a way to release it to the Universe to transmute into Love.  You will be helping the energy of the planet as a whole.  To help yourself not absorb it into yourself, try stating “I nullify this energy and release it to the Universe to transmute into Light.”

Water has energy and as proven by experiments performed by Dr. Masaru Emoto, we can put energy into our water with our intentions.  Take a sharpie and write the word “LOVE” on your water bottle.  Program Love and Peace into your patient’s water with your intention.  It will make a very subtle yet important difference on the cellular level.

IMG_1460-Edit.jpgI’m going to sound like everyone else here when I say, you have to take care of yourself first.  That is actually the name of the game for everyone during the shift though.  We all have to clear out pain and emotional issues to be better able to run the new energy through us.

I Just want to mention here, a few energetic self-maintenance practices (most I’ve covered in this blog or certainly can be googled.)

  • Keep grounding yourself
  • Flush yourself with water
  • Meditation and connecting inside
  • Exercise like walking and yoga
  • Get out into nature
  • Eat lighter and change stress eating to eating foods with energy
  • Train yourself to change negative thoughts and emotions into positive ones
  • Set healthy boundaries
  • Declutter your space
  • See yourself as the shining Angel that you truly are
  • When you are feeling bombarded, use the Law of Attraction to turn it around and make a list of all the things for which you are grateful

It may seem most days like you have the lowest job on the totem pole.  A thankless position.  But, from a spiritual standpoint, you are the bravest, strongest shining star in the sky.  You may feel all alone at times, but you have Guides, Family and Angels all around you and you are never alone.  When you need help, ask them.  Ask for them to show you signs they are there.  Then keep your eyes open for little things that catch your attention like synchronicities.  You are more beloved than you will ever know, and you are more than you realize.  The soul you are caring for is better because you are in their life, and that is huge.  Your innate ability to heal is a gift.  Your patience and tolerance is cherished.  You are loved by the Universe and your work is so very special.  You are blessed and upheld in the highest spiritual regard.

Namaste

The Nuts and Bolts of Overreaction

IMG_1442.JPGWe’ve all been there… having a seemingly innocent interaction, and suddenly someone flares at something or someone, leaving those around scratching their heads.  If we could bread down what is happening, we could then understand what is really going on, in order to not be adversely affected, and to help that person heal.

When someone has pain so deeply buried, that they are not even aware it is there, something in the present may spark a subconscious remembrance to that pain and immediately frustration musters and defenses rise.  They may not know why.  The ego may or may not be involved to fuel the fire.  The reaction could be to built up conflict within themselves and may have nothing to do with the present situation at all.

Behind the scenes, deep within that human, is a wounded child with energetic tendrils attached to their own painful experience that has come to the surface in that moment.  They may be physically in the present moment but with them is every unresolved conflict from their past.  They may be looking at you, but they may be seeing someone or something else that has hurt them deeply.  If they are unable to become aware of what is going on, they may need help.  Those energetic cords from the painful experience that are escalating their reaction need to be cut, so the past can be cleared, and they can be fully present and able to move forward.

In various posts, I’ve been discussing many ways we can clear our own “baggage.”  But that is when we are aware of our stuff, and willing and able to do the work.  What do we do when someone is standing in front of us, is visibly volatile, and unable or unwilling to admit that the reason they are seething is because of what is going on inside of them?

A couple things…

  1. If that person is unable to quiet and listen to reason, then we need to realize that at some point in their lives, most probably when young, their tendency toward kindness and caring was forced out of them.  Perhaps they were forced into survival mode by a parent under threat of punishment.  Perhaps they were bullied and were forced to survive.  We can think of any number of abusive circumstances where warmth and compassion were relinquished to aggression in the name of survival.  They may be hardened to even care how their behavior affects others, perhaps because if they let themselves see it, a dam would burst and they would be overcome with pain and guilt.  Maybe they have been holding up that dam for so long that the fear of it breaking and the flood of emotion engulfing them is enough to avoid seeing the truth of how they are overreacting.  Biochemical and neurological imbalances can be influencing their emotions.  One thing that silently screams truth is that they are in trouble.
  2. When we speak to them, we need to be in a place of centered calm.  If we are feeling one bit defensive, then we need to cut our own cords, and clear the experiences from our past that make us feel anything but love and compassion, so we can be a true voice of healing.  If we can speak in a way that reminds them to respect other people’s boundaries, we can also remind them to respect another’s humanity, we may get a foot in the door.  Speaking harshly or with anger will not get through.  It will only remind them of the abusive system that created their pain.  If we quietly show them the unnecessary sharpness or violence of their behavior, without our own anger amplifying their reaction, we may be able to get through, and create an “aha moment” for them.  If we confront them with anger, it only reinforces their belief that they need to see the world as unsafe, and further perpetuates their belief that they must fight to stay alive in order to save the little part of themselves that they have left.

If that person is a coworker, friend or family member and we have to be in close proximity to them, we may ask for help from their Higher Self, Guides and Angels to help them cut the cords to their painful experiences so that they can find their stability.  We can ask for them to be surrounded with light to aid their clarity and allow them to step out of their pain to claim their personal sovereignty.  This only aids the energetic vibration of the whole, as we all proceed with our own personal ascension.  It may allow them to heal enough so that they may help others to heal also, from their own personal experience.

Affirmation

I ask for _______ to be surrounded by healing light.

I ask for their Higher Self, their Guides and Angels to help them cut the cords of their pain and fill them with love and clarity.

I believe ____________ will heal and become whole for the highest good of All.

I ask for the Light of the Universe to always accompany them.

If Reality Were Malleable

The Mandela effect is here to catch our attention.  It is a cue to wake us up to new possibilities.  It is here to show us that our reality is totally malleable… and we are only limited by our beliefs… or are we?

IMG_1485-0.JPG

If one person went onto the hologram deck and created some snow scenery to play around in…

IMG_1485-0-Edit.jpg

…then the next person came onto that same snow scenery, but thought it looked a bit parochial, so they decided to punch it up a bit, and make it sort of surreal and a little bit spooky.

IMG_1485-Edit.jpg

Then another crewmember comes onto the holodeck and feels that this isn’t to their taste, and felt a little cold and wet, so they give everything a southwest motif.

IMG_1485-30-Edit.jpg

Well, when a fourth crewmember boards the holodeck, they figure this is all wrong, so they decide to play around with the adjustments and make it look andfeel like a true Charles Dickens Christmas scene.

IMG_1485-20-Edit.jpg

Then the ship’s Empath comes aboard and she’s been tired from feeling everyone’s complaints lately, and sees all the adjustments in the holodeck’s data history and she decides that everyone needs to experience a rainbow iridescent light-filled snow crystalline experience, so she  sets the controls so that everyone will get the rainbow crystal world experience.

Think you’re scratching your head wondering what the moral of the story is… how do you think the little red bird hiding in one of the bushes is feeling.

Grace

DSC03351-0-Edit.jpgAfter forgiveness, there is grace.  That is a place within ourselves that looks from such a vantage point that knows that nothing was by accident, and nothing was a mistake.  It all played out as it should, and there are a multitude of hard won payoffs for the effort.

When we manage to get past “he did this to me, she did that to me,” which can be no small feat, our horizon opens up before us in a symphony of magical synchronistic life, and forgiveness is the key that opens that door.

The current energy waves are urging us to look at the issues that come up because although it may be something that is happening in the now, it is triggering something that is deeply buried inside us from our past.  The fact that it is coming up now means that it no longer serves us and needs to be ejected from our story.  Even if there are unresolved unknowns from which we are still healing.   If we can find a perspective that softens the experience, we have permission from God and the Universe to change the story of our past.  When an issue comes up in our present that triggers an unresolved issue from our past, do we ruminate on it and grow it bigger? Can we take advantage of the opportunity the Universe has brought to us to open our hearts enough to apply forgiveness to it and unlock the door so we can graduate and advance to grace?   These energy waves are from God, urging us forward and upward.  Do we really want to drag any heavy weights of our past pain into it?

If it is just too painful to go there, we can just set the intention for it to be healed.  The way to unlock and release all that calls to be healed, is to open our hearts.  We don’t have to give up any rights.  We don’t have to demean ourselves in any way.  We can simply set the intention to allow.  We can ask for help from the Universe, our Higher Self, Guides and Angels, and then simply allow the miracle to occur.  There will be a change within us, a beautiful, painless change where we did not give up anything, and gained everything.

Light.jpg

Grace asks us to be lighter and be light.  It is a state of freedom from the heavy dense energies and the chaotic confusion that is just not us.  Grace gets us to a place where we can finally get down to the bare bones of our work:  To accept who we are, to accept what we are, and then to go inside and learn what that means.  Grace opens the door to our gifts, and for our path to be gifted.  Grace gives us permission, because all is cleared, to get on with this business of ascension and being the lighthouses we came here to be.

Affirmation

I open my heart, and invite grace.

I forgive all.

I am in gratitude that my Higher Self, Guides and Angels have cleared my body, my life and my path.

I believe that my life is gifted with love, peace, joy and happiness.

I ask for my Higher Self, Guides and Angels to give me signs that the best is happening, because I know that the best is happening.

 

 

 

 

 

Saying No to Pessimism and Fueling Manifestation

IMG_1475-0-Edit.jpgMy Dad was a patient man.  I remember helping him plant two trees in our backyard when I was in my teens.  He explained to me that the two trees were to be a certain distance apart.  The reason for that specific distance was that when they would someday grow big enough, he was going to hang a hammock between them.  Being surprised by my Dad was a frequent occurrence, but I was impressed with my Dad’s faith and optimism then.  There was no doubt in his mind that hammock would one day be there, in fact we often talked about how he would rest there in the shade of those trees, after cutting the grass, a cold drink in his hand.

When I woke up this morning, I pulled an Angel card to get an idea of my theme for the day.  The message was basically “don’t be pessimistic.”  I kind of went hmmmm to myself because I wasn’t anticipating feeling that way today.  Okay, so on I go with my day.

Since it was one of our first warm spring days, I decided to remove one of the stumps in our newly purchased lot next door.  I set a goal that that stump would be out by the end of the day.  It was quite rotted, and it did move a little, but the main root was still firm in the ground.  Even when I dug out the dirt around the stump and sawed through as far as I could with my little battery operated reciprocating saw, I could not get it to snap off.

IMG_1456-0-Edit.jpgSome days I might have growled at this point, but I decided to just continue and cut some wedges into the trunk so I could reach the center.  But the saw battery chose that moment to die.  Some days I might have become disheartened, and I did think of how this job had become harder than I had hoped.  Then the thought occurred to me to try to talk to the stump and ask it to work with me.  I asked for permission to snap off that stump and said that I would return the stump to the land and bury it there to replenish the soil.  I asked the stump and the land and my spirit team to help me, because I was getting quite tired and would like to get onto the next phase of the project so I could start planting.  I tried to break the stump again, but it wouldn’t budge, so I walked away to put the battery on charge and just left the possibilities open.

After running some errands, I grabbed the battery and went out to do battle, in an attempt to accomplish my goal for the day.  When the saw blade touched the stump, I noticed the stump moved differently.  So I pushed on the stump again, and I heard a crack.  I was surprised that I wasn’t surprised. What a relief to finally separate the top of that stump, and I immediately had the feeling that it went so much easier than it would have had I gotten pissed at it.

IMG_1475-EditI immediately gave thanks for the help in making the job easier.  I was astounded at the love and support for something small and silly like this, but boy was I grateful.  I mean, tears in my eyes grateful and it was mostly to my Dad.  I kept my promise to return the stump to the earth, to replenish it.  It was then that I remembered my morning message for the day.  Had I chosen or let myself become pessimistic, I probably would have hijacked and blocked the flow of energy that facilitated the stump breaking.  By having faith, almost in a optimistic playful way, like my Dad taught me, I was able to manifest an easier, almost magical way to accomplish the goal… and it was so much easier, and took much less energy.

Those two trees my Dad and I planted in his backyard did indeed grow large and strong enough to hang that hammock.  It took about 10 or so years, and I had young children by then.  I got to explain to them how Grandpa and I planted those trees in their places for the purpose of hanging the hammock in which they were giggling and swinging.  I told them how we nurtured those trees over the years and made sure they had enough water when there was a drought, and kept the weeds from growing too close to their trunks.  We planted them with the faith that those trees would grow strong and that one day we would indeed hang that hammock, and used playful optimism to fuel the manifestation into reality.

Party Gifts

IMG_1437.JPG

When my boys were in their teens, before cellphones, we used to have to have a way of keeping track of one another… In the event of failed check-ins, we just knew.  We knew where each was, and when they needed help.  Sometimes it failed, but usually it was spot on.  We could just pinpoint where one of us was, by feel.

This is just an example of something we all have innate within us, that has gotten lazy with the use of technology.  But technology is not a bad thing, it has connected us exponentially better, across our world, and allowed information to fly at lightening speed, having instant concrete validation thus not needing to place as much trust in our senses, causing some of our inherent abilities to become rusty.

One of my sons just moved to a house about a mile away from us.  He brings his doggie over to play and frequently comes to dinner.  I usually send a text when dinner is about ready.  Yesterday, without any communication since morning, he walked in the door just as dinner was ready.  I smiled to myself, because in this new energy, we still got it… and it’s only going to get better.

As our evolution accelerates, and more of us are waking up every day, those abilities are strengthening.  Numerous synchronicities are clamoring for our attention and beckoning us to tune in.  Excitement is building and anticipation for something good on our horizon is palpable.  It is all causing us to pause, and quiet and watch more closely.

The message I am getting very strongly is to look inward first.  The more we connect inside, the more happens outside.  By strengthening our inner connection, more light can be held in our bodies, and anchored through us.  The building anticipation of something is actually manifesting the something that is coming.  So, keep it up.  Keep up our vibration and keep looking inward, listening for clues and feeling for nudges.  Several months ago, I had a message of someone riding up on a bicycle asking me when I was going to show up.  Then a month ago I heard a message to “find the party.”  Yesterday, my friend, Sara Kujawa, gave a message from her son, ADam, “when you show up, show up with bells on.”  So, I’m going to just put some puzzle pieces together …

“Find the party, and when you show up, show up with bells on!”

Not sure if this is just for me, but I have the feeling it is for all of us, because what is happening personally with each of us, is also simultaneously happening to others.  Each individual is having a unique experience, like a flower opening, but… together, we are all making a beautiful bouquet– absolutely splendant in variety of shape and color.  The absolute beauty of all of our uniqueness is making a magical magnificent whole.

  • Honor your own personal growth and transformation, have the inside experience first.

  • Then connect outward using your feelers and find the party.

  • Then, show up with bells on and look around and to the heavens with anticipation and excitement.

Releasing Ourselves from Punishment

IMG_0558.JPG

Current new energies are bringing us startling clarity and revelations.  At the current moment, I’m grasping that “The Event” is about changes within ourselves.  As if a hazy gray cloud is lifting from within and around us.  And, it feels like everyone is going through their own personal transformation.  Not pretty, but the most deeply buried issues are rearing their ugly heads in unexpected ways.  We have the choice to find a way to make peace and allow it to release itself with Love (if we are lucky enough to recognize what issues are being triggered,) or to continue in more pain and discomfort.  That choice is making itself abundantly clear, as the clarity dial gets turned up notch by notch with each new energy wave.

This is an exciting time and we all came here for this.  We came to go through the transition from trudging through a sleepy life, tediously learning lessons, to graduating and claiming our individual sovereignty as divine beings.  What we have been punishing ourselves for is a question only each of us can answer for ourselves. The search for that answer is our release to freedom and a new level of clarity.  What messages did we internalize in our younger days on this Earth that caused us to punish ourselves?  What feelings and emotions caused us to turn that around and punish others?

Right now, the Earth is being showered with Love from God.  It is a Love free from judgment, and simply a divine energy that is telling us we are Loved and we ARE Love.  The judgment part is coming from ourselves.  Can we possibly Love ourselves enough to step into unconditional Love?  That means, whatever experiences, thoughts, emotions, situations, memories or pain lurking deep within has permission to evaporate, that empty space filling up with the expanding Light inside of us.  The stories we have been playing out simply put, have gotten old and we are fast outgrowing them.

Can we allow the process to continue, without exactly knowing what is on the other side?  Can we make the choice to venture into the Light coming from God over continuing as we have in more pain and cloudiness?

If we each go inside, there are answers waiting for us.  We each have a team that loves us waiting to assist us in our personal transition.  Can we release ourselves from the punishment and take a step forward… untethering ourselves from our painful stories that we are fast outgrowing?

That first step is declaring that we love ourselves no matter what.

Affirmation

I release my painful stories.

I allow the Light of God to clean and fill and bring new clarity.

I ask for assistance of my Higher Self, Guides, Angels and Archangels.

I Love myself no matter what.

I am Loved and I am Love.

I feel that Love.

And so it is.

Holding the Light

DSC00118.JPGCan you feel the hum within you?

When we are quiet enough to feel our own beautiful heart, we can connect with the expansive energy of all life around us.  Letting all the chaos go on without us, and allowing our own peace to fill the air around us to create a safe, loving and fertile space.  When we smile into that peaceful bubble and feel it down into the Earth, and then follow it up into the Heavens, we are anchoring the light.  As we pull in that peaceful loving energy that feeds us and rejuvenates us, we can pause to just hold it, and then we can set the intention to hold the light now and every now moment in the future.

Affirmation

I hold the light.

I am the light.

I am.

When We Love Ourselves Unconditionally

DSC00135.JPGOne aspect of having challenges in our lives is that we chose those challenges to learn to love ourselves unconditionally.  If we can keep that in mind as we go through our experiences, we can perhaps go through them more smoothly, and directly, rather than getting stuck in a side trip to the circle of emotional turmoil.  When we love ourselves enough to accept the situation without judgment, we can apply forgiveness right away to others as well as ourselves.  This invites the magic of synchronicity in to transform for the highest good of all involved.  Loving ourselves unconditionally, with all our foibles, and accepting ourselves as already perfect, we can begin to see others as perfect in themselves too, and be able to love them unconditionally as well.

DSC00122Dr. Wayne’s daughter, Serena, wrote a blogpost entitled Learning to love myself In it, she explains, “It was only when I stopped judging myself and tried loving myself that I began to discover that the universe, God, whatever you want to call it, fully supported me in my efforts and I started getting all “green lights” on my path toward discovering just what my dharma was. When I started attempting deep and profound self-love, the kind great parents offer to their children, I started to feel good- I started to find that the right people were showing up at the right places and my life began to feel more on purpose. Since I began the process of self-love and self-acceptance, the right man came into my life. When I started to offer love to myself on the inside, I started to lose the extra weight I was carrying around because I began to realize that I didn’t need food to give me the feeling of being full, I felt full and complete without food or drugs or alcohol.”

DSC00126.JPGAll the things we do in a day change when we love ourselves unconditionally.  Doing something for ourselves feels different because we are doing it with a renewed love for our own sacred existence.  Taking two minutes to thank our body, to remind ourselves how magnificent we are and to just be.  Doing for others, and getting no thanks, changes because we are the ones who thank ourselves, and somehow the need for thanks doesn’t seem that important anymore.  We do things out of love for ourselves, because we are each a piece of God, and connected by God.

We’ve all known people that seem empty inside, or maybe we have felt that way ourselves.  That emptiness is a void of self-love.  When we drop the distractions and put down all the games and illusions, we can get down to it and face ourselves in the mirror.  We can step back and look at our life as a whole, so far, and then zero in on the individual spark within, that is really and truly… us.  We can make that spark of our true essence, which is love, grow.  Then we can:

  • Accept our past
  • Forgive ourselves
  • Appreciate our unique appearance
  • Value our bodies
  • Be at peace instead of needing to fix
  • Affirm our amazing journey
  • Rest is a gift to ourselves
  • Absolve our insecurities
  • Free ourselves of judgement
  • See the beauty of life… and feel gratitude

When we love ourselves we naturally treat others with respect and kindness because we recognize that the same spark of God that is within us, is within them too.  And then, somehow, what we are feeling and doing on the inside, becomes reflected back to us on the outside.  When we have aligned the inside of ourselves with love, the Universe sends love to us and we can manifest and create more easily than ever before… or just be… peacefully.

DSC00119.JPGIn his blogpost The Love Equation, Dr. Wayne wrote, “To begin to change what’s inside you, become more loving toward yourself. In your thoughts, cultivate an inner voice and attitude that’s 100 percent on your team. Imagine an inner self that only supports and loves you. You might schedule a certain time of day when that’s the only thought that you allow yourself to pay attention to. Gradually this loving attitude will extend to other people. You’ll begin to receive this energy back and ultimately be able to send thoughts of love and joy to everyone and everything in your world.”

When we love ourselves unconditionally, we’re not being selfish or vain.  When we have our own full love, we have no need to go out of balance like that.  We see things differently and so clearly, and life just becomes more simple.  Seeing things differently is a miraculous gift.  Because amazing truths exist in the vastness beyond ourselves, and truly loving ourselves is the key that opens the door.
