All the Power of the Universe is Inside of You

I have heard the saying that the entire Universe lies within me, but not until recently did I get to experience directly what that actually means in terms of energy.

On October 30th I had my second Light activation where the kundalini life force energy was activated and traveled through my entire body, piercing each chakra from my base upward, exploding in electrical currents out through the crown of my head and uniting with the Heart of the Universe, the Source of all Creation. It was orgasmic as I quite literally had a “Godgasm”. I was writhing around on the floor in ecstatic release, moaning, groaning and gyrating as I felt the union of my body, mind, spirit and soul with my Higher Self, God and the Universe as One. The power that I experienced was overwhelming, my body was experiencing such a tremendous flow of energy that it was scary at first until I realized that resistance was futile and that all I had to do was to surrender and “let go”. Once I surrendered, the force and the Light burst through me into oneness as I felt a radiant and harmonized state of being. The rush was incredible and it was as if I had stuck my finger into a high voltage electrical socket. I felt so ALIVE as if all the Universe was flowing through me! And that’s exactly what was happening.

Do you have any idea how much power we have access to by connecting our energy field and bodies with the flow of the Universal Life force? This river of energy rises up from Mother earth through us connecting our human flesh body with our Higher Selves and God. Unless you have felt it you would not believe how powerful we actually are! I’m talking supernatural! And the power is the force and light of love, it is one and the same energy that makes up all of creation that moves through us and all around us. It is the same substance that creates a nebulous, a dark hole, a shooting comet, the Sun. It is infinity, or forever, boundlessness, there is no quantification for it as it is the All. Once you become aware of the truth of who you are, of your power, of how much you are loved and watched over, you would never worry again. The conditioned mind of the human however, has to practice being fearless, and has to learn the true meaning of trust. Trust is to relinquish control.

Jesus said, “Even the least among you can do all I have done and more.” We absolutely have the ability to manifest miracles. It is awe inspiring and I can see how those that have access to that kind of power have struggled with using it for good because the seduction to use if for personal gains cannot be underestimated. That kind of power, if unleashed within a person who does not have humility at their foundation is extremely dangerous. It reminds me of the movie, “The Lord of the Rings”. Even Cate Blanchette’s character, the fairy queen, Galadriel, who was “good” was tempted by the power of the ring. Only Frodo, whose heart was pure and unadulterated was entrusted with the role of ring bearer because he could not be corrupted. Therefore, purifying our hearts and minds is an essential step to receiving this light activation so that we may direct our actions in alignment with the will of God which is concerned for the good of all and not for our own egoic purposes.

This second Light activation happened for me so that I could step into my role as a Divine Teacher for others to show them the possibilities of what is available in this field of experience. When this union occurs you are activating your full potential of who you are and what you can bring through you as your Divine Self to contribute to the world in this lifetime. This power, this union and this potential is available to everyone.
My first activation occurred in 2002 and that is when I first came to understand who I truly was (a Divine being of Light in a body) and what my role was in this world (Teacher of the Light). The experience was super intense, and it took place after I lost everything including my boyfriend, job, apartment, car (all of my worldly possessions), but at least I had my dogs. It took me 14 years to integrate that activation. Once you receive an activation like that it’s critical to maintain a daily spiritual practice to keep you in alignment with God so you can develop further and go deeper into yourself. I then had a 7 year initiation of one challenge after another and during those difficult years, I perceived that I had been abandoned. This was a misperception but the fact that I had that belief resulted in my losing my faith. The consequence of that false belief was that I created my life from a place of disconnection and from my head rather than fully creating from my heart and with love. When you create your life from a place of fear, from your wounded self, the life you create is not sustainable, it will eventually crumble like the Tower in the Tarot deck. The foundation has to be love, that is the way, the light and the truth. The path of the heart leads you back to oneness. All else will ultimately be revealed as false. The more awareness you have the more you realize there is no wrong path as all water eventually leads to the great ocean. Even years of repeating the same mistakes over and over will bring you back to your truth. Or you are released from the body back to the Light. The lesson here is that you are never abandoned, you are never alone, you are always loved and accompanied by God and those that love you and want the best for you. When you feel alone, rejected, hurt and full of despair, know that you are in a place where you are to utilize what you have learned so far. With a strong and positive mindset, keep your body fit, commune with nature, buoy your faith and keep walking the narrow path. If you lose your faith and fall into victim consciousness, you will experience what feels like a “fall”, or a downward spiral of destruction. You always have a choice. If you keep your faith and put into practice what you know to be true, you will continue to grow your True Self, your Creator self and this requires a tremendous amount of fortitude. These periods of difficulties and challenges have been placed in your path by a loving Universe to strengthen you. You will find out what you are made of in these challenging phases. If you crumble and fall, you will have to reassemble yourself into a better version and it could take some time. Once the new you has emerged you will know your strength which emanates from the center of your being and this will be your empowerment. The definition of the word empowerment from Wikipedia is, “The term empowerment refers to measures designed to increase the degree of autonomy and self-determination in people and in communities in order to enable them to represent their interests in a responsible and self-determined way, acting on their own authority. It is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. Empowerment as action refers both to the process of self-empowerment and to professional support of people, which enables them to overcome their sense of powerlessness and lack of influence, and to recognize and use their resources. To do work with power.” When we claim our God-given power we can carry our own weight and give back to the world.

Do you see? It is all for you! Even the really painful and hard shit! Once you come out the other end of the rebirthing tunnel, you can glory in your magnificence, as you claim your power to be all of who you are. Life and everything happening in it is all for you, that is why the saying “Everything is Love” and “Only Love is Real” is true. Love is everything, it is the force that guides your growth back to this place of wholeness and it will do it in unexpected and shocking ways if need be so that you can let go into the Oneness. Good and bad are one and the same, all of it is God. Once you become empowered you can use your powers for good to affect this world by offering your unique gifts that you were born with. We all have them.

These strengthening processes are orchestrated so that you can overcome your fear to bring your gifts out into the world! It was only after I lost everything twice in my life (the second time I lost my dogs too) that I came to know what I’m truly made of. I’m a badass for real. I am strong, resilient and freaking awesome and now I know it because I have lived it. I have transmuted my victim self into my Creator Self and there’s so much more to learn, believe me, but I at least I know this now, and this is what I need to keep growing my true self, every day, with every choice I make.
Most of us are disconnected from this river of life force energy. When that happens, your root chakra is closing off and you may feel fearful and anxious and have a sense of lack. Wherever you are right now, I want you to bring your awareness to your base chakra, at your tailbone, and your perineum, that place between your anus and sex organs (sorry there’s just no other way to say it, lol!) Be aware if you are holding down there, pulling up and clenching. Now just completely relax that whole area including your legs and breathe. It may feel like you need to pee or give you a pleasant sexual feeling. Keep softening and opening that area. Now imagine this shaft, river, pillar, column of light coming up from Mother earth into your body with a warm, pink light flooding into every cell. Breathe it in. Allow it to flow up through your pelvis, low back, abdomen, mid back, chest, upper back, throat, head and out the top of your head all the way up to the heart of the Universe. Keep breathing as you tune into the flow of Universal Life force energy running through you. Relax, breath and visualize this happening in your body. Don’t think about it and then just relax into it and experience it by feeling it. This is also a good exercise to do lying down with your arms and legs open wide in starfish position and meditative music playing. Practice this daily and if you have time, throughout your day. This is the energy that animates your body and nourishes and feeds your entire system. When you do not have this connection you feel fear and anxiety, your body gets sick, your mind gets sick and disease results. You can eat all the best foods, drink the best water, take all the right vitamins, but the number one source of vitality, health and well-being is Source energy flowing through you. Read that sentence again, please and take 3 deep breaths. The breath moves the energy through you. Deep belly breaths, in and out of your nose.

When you live only from your head, you are trying to control everything yourself. Your head is not where you want to be creating from because it is limited by human perception as well as misperception. When you connect with the flow, you let go of control and trust in the Universe to guide you. This is how you create from your Heart for your Highest and your best to realize your full potential. Spend time cultivating this connection. Let go of trying to control because you don’t have the vantage point the Universe does. You most probably are unable to recognize your magnificence and the Universe does so its plan for you and its design for your life will be 5 gazillion times better than the one your mind constructs. By connecting with the Universal flow, you can co-create your amazing life through wisdom, empowerment and intuition and have all of the intelligence and power from the Universe supporting you.
Blessings on your path.

In Peace and Light,

Real Change is Possible!

Just as every year passes and the seasons change, we change and grow. This is called evolution. Nothing remains the same, change is the one constant in our lives that we can count on. Loved ones close to us pass on and others pass through and new people enter. Life can be like a revolving door at times. New jobs, new locations, new scenery. Babies being born, kids go off to college, we remodel our homes, get new hairdos, buy newer cars, shape new bodies, acquire diplomas, and get upgrades of all kinds. Our physical, outer world is constantly in a state of flux. If we cling tightly to what is leaving or has left us, we will suffer. We have to adapt to our new reality in order to thrive. Change is a process. We are constantly being given opportunities to change our inner world.
Our inner world is the way we perceive ourselves and the world around us. It is our belief systems, our connection to Source, our understanding of who we are and how we fit into the grand scheme of things. Our inner world is where our thoughts and dreams originate, our words and what we create. So often we can get stuck in a rut, thinking and creating the same thing that perhaps we don’t want to and we wonder why that happens. Real change is possible but you have to really want it more than you want the comfort of the familiar. Sometimes we don’t ask for the change, it’s delivered to us from the Universe in what can seem cruel and unforgiving at the time. True change can be a bit scary, but you will know when it’s time for it because you will be so sick of the current reality that you may want to check out. It may even feel like you’re dying or want to die but what’s happening is that your old self is at that place of dying and your new self is waiting for you to let go so it can be born! You’ve got to trust and let go…surrender.
Everyone will go through change slightly differently because we are all having our own experience, unique to who we are and we are all in our own phase. Even so, there are some similarities to the process:

  1. Decision – when the time comes that you just can’t take it any more, you make a decision, which means you make a choice that you are going to go in a new direction and then you actually stick to that choice. Decide comes from a Latin word “cide” which means to cut off or kill. To decide means you literally cut off all other options. You choose a new path.
  2. Self-Image – you create a new image of who you want to be and convince yourself that you can be that person. Who do you admire? What qualities do they possess? What qualities, behaviors and actions will the new you demonstrate? It’s a good practice to visualize how you will look, what you will be doing as this new you. Where will you be? What are your heart’s desires, your heart holds the key to the new you.
  3. Beliefs – when you choose your new path, you are fully invested in believing this is the new path for you and that you are that person who can walk that path and be that version of yourself. This belief is solidified within your mind, heart and energy field. There’s no looking back.
  4. Boundaries – not everyone is going to like it when you change because it may feel scary to them that you are no longer acting like the person they knew before once you re-define your boundaries and stick with them. It’s necessary to draw new lines in the sand that people can’t cross. When you do this, it may cause some waves at first, but ultimately, you will garner respect. Some people may bounce right out of your life. Let them.
  5. New Circle – it will be important to support yourself in this transformation however you need to which means you may change the people you surround yourself with that believe and encourage you to be this new version of yourself. As your frequency raises, you will attract people into your life that are on that new vibrational level as you. Let the old go & embrace what and who is showing up now.
  6. Thoughts, Words & Behaviors – You will literally need to think different thoughts, speak different words and act in different ways to become the new version of you. This takes practice and repetition. If you find yourself reverting to your old patterns of thoughts and behaviors, realign yourself by reminding yourself of who you want to be. You can work with a hypnotist, coach, or energy healer to learn how to transform the patterns that reside in the subconscious.
  7. Connection to Source – By connecting to God, the Universe, your Inner Being…whatever you want to call it, you are empowering yourself and filling yourself with the Light that will help you raise your vibration and reach that next level. This is called alignment and will keep you in the flow of everything that the Universe wants to deliver to you.
  8. Trust – The antidote to fear and anxiety is trust. Trust in the process of the unfolding of your life. It is scary and not easy to change your form. Just ask any caterpillar…but look what comes out on the other side! Be brave, and stay the course. Your heart is where you will find your courage.
  9. Love – Love yourself through all of it, the scary, the letting go, the tears, the uncertainty….all of it. Just keep telling yourself, “I Love You & I believe in You”. Accept all of your past, who you were & what you experienced without judgment. Wholeness requires total self-acceptance.

These are just some guide posts for your transformational journey. The Universe is constantly working with you to help you evolve and it’s happening on a massive scale right now. We are in transformational times and our very existence depends on us changing so that we make better choices for ourselves and this planet.

We are meant to evolve. We know how painful it is to watch loved ones who don’t make the changes that are so obvious to us that we know will make them happier people. Let go of how you think the way things “should” be and open yourself up to receive what is coming in. Raise your vibration so that you create the highest and the best for your self. It is less about striving and more about aligning and allowing.

My friend Jess Holland and I are facilitating a course called “Loving My Life!” for women in Syracuse who could use some support and guidance as they make those changes. It’s wonderful to have someone walk you through the steps and give you the encouragement you need to stick with it until your beautiful wings unfold and you can fly on your own.

Real change is messy. When it’s done right, it will crack you open revealing all the gory guts you’ve tried so hard to repress. It will stir up your most painful memories and feelings and ask you to really look at them, process them and then release them forever. Forever, as in never to come back and haunt you again in the wee hours of the morning when you’re trying to get a some decent sleep.

Real change requires brutal honesty so that you can arrive at a place of your TRUTH. We are so conditioned by everything and everyone around us all the time…how often do you actually drop into your own heart and soul and find out what your true desires are? At some point along your journey you begin to realize that you might be sacrificing your truth for the status quo. I don’t really like working a corporate job that gives me the security that’s supposed to make me feel good but instead I feel like my life is slipping by before my eyes and I’d much rather be a writer. Or why am I living in the woods when my happy place is the beach? Whatever your truth is, it’s your truth and you’ve got to follow it and quit pleasing others because this is your life and yours alone. Imagine you’re lying on your death bed and you look back and find that you did everything so well to make everyone else happy and someone is busy engraving your tombstone to read “best people pleaser ever!”…. It’s your life and you get to do what you want with it. It’s called being authentic and it’s a place that is pure bliss for those who actually make their way there. But getting there is far from blissful.

Real change happens when you’ve reached the last rung of the phase and cycle you’re in and then it’s time to move to the next cycle. Let your truth lead the way. Remember, it may feel like you’re dying, but it’s only what needs to fall away that is dying, let it die, and welcome the new dawn that is rising on your new life.

Blessings on your (new) path!

Claim Your God-given Power

Feeling safe has become a big issue for the people in this country. We are witnessing a lot of people with anxiety who are getting caught up in the fear cycle. Fear and anxiety have become a big problem with children (and adults) as we continue to be faced with mass shootings, racism, sexism, hackers, sex-trafficking, financial inequality as well as being ruled by a fascist government that is bullying, self-serving and lacks basic morals and ethics. This society is designed to keep people fearful, because fearful people are easier to control. This system is designed by a specific few, who are hoarding resources and power over the masses to serve themselves. Imagine if these systems were rearranged to support the people they serve, rather than take from them. Some countries do experience a positive cycle, meaning that their infrastructures and systems are healthy and supporting to the individuals that live there. Iceland, Sweden and Norway are a few countries that come to mind that appear to be a desirable place to live. This is not the case with America and there is a sinister agenda being played out to the detriment of it’s citizens and immigrants.

There is a solution, and that is for each of us to take our power back and not live in fear, but to live in trust and connection to the Universe and (God), knowing that we are powerful beings who cannot be controlled and manipulated by anyone. For true change to happen in this country, each individual needs to know who they are, know they are powerful and to exercise that power with their will in accordance with the Highest good of all. This is how transformation happens. This means that each individual transforms their own inner self and unites with each other to overturn and recreate this system so it works for us, not against us.

To be in your power you must firstly be living in the present moment and be connected to your own heart, spirit and the Source of creation. You must also have very strong boundaries and discernment so you know who to keep out of your circle and who to let in. You must know who you are and feel secure within yourself. You must be concerned with and give to the greater good, not just serve yourself, but serve others, this is true abundance. To be in your true power you spend time cultivating your inner world, or your connection to your Self, with a capital S, meaning your Higher Self, your direct connection to God or the Source of all Creation. To be in your power, you trust your self and the choices that you make. You make the right choices that keep you safe, healthy, joyful, connected, financially secure, and you make these choices consistently. You must also deal with your emotions and allow yourself to feel everything to process it properly. If you are repressing your emotions through addictions or avoidance, they will eventually come out through your shadow self. All of your feelings must be acknowledged and owned, embraced and loved by your core self. This is the integration of the shadow self work that is so necessary to becoming whole.

The opposite of owning your own power is being a victim. You are being a victim if you continue to complain about aspects of your life that you wish to change but you don’t actually take the steps to change them. A victim gives their power to others by seeing in others what they wish to be like and not developing those qualities or traits within themselves. You will not embrace your power if you are living in the past or future or living from your head only. You cannot fully be in your power if you are not connecting to Source energy, because that is where your true power emanates from, the Divine spark within you. The current system in this country produces and supports the victim mentality through fear. This system is a destructive cycle. Being a victim is being caught in the destructive cycle. To destruct something or someone is to cause total ruin and irreparable damage. The opposite of destruction is rebuilding, reclaiming, raising, restoring, protection, salvation. And the definition for creation is the act or process to bring something into existence.

Every single human being is a Divine being. We are spirits inhabiting flesh. God gave us certain rights which we can claim at anytime. Once we know who we are and claim our power, we can create anything we desire. The Universe supports our thoughts and beliefs that we consistently think. It is up to you to direct your thoughts positively toward yourself and others to create a reality that is loving and supportive, healthy and successful. These thoughts must be consistent and connected to positive feelings and visions. Practice visualizing what you wish to see manifest in your world over and over. Repetition is needed to reprogram the subconscious mind.

Abundance is our birthright. The Universe will support your financial needs and once you truly know this truth, that you are always taken care of, you will cease to worry about money. Recognizing that in the present moment, you are safe, secure, and have everything you need, will help you to stay grounded and centered. We create from the present moment. Of course, you have to take the necessary steps on the earth plane to create a system for the abundance to be delivered to you, in other words, you can’t just sit back and expect it to land in your lap, there needs to be a channel for the money to flow to you, such as a job, or business or service that you offer.

Anxiety and fear is a base chakra issue and is the result of stepping out of the present moment. When we look ahead to the future, and we can’t see how a problem will be solved, or where the money will come from for that or how that is going to even work out, for God’s sake, then we are not in the present moment and we are creating from fear. To counter this, become aware that you are completely supported and safe in this moment and then give thanks for everything you have. This practice of gratitude will transform the energy you are sending out to the Universe. By doing this you are telling the Universe you feel secure, safe and are feeling blessed. A good mantra is, “I AM Blessed and Grateful for my life, thank you, Creator.” Then send these blessings out to the world, visualize the planet earth and send the light out from your heart to everyone on the planet including the plants and animals, elementals and all of life. Once you are in this state of gratitude, set your intention for what you wish to create, by stating that intention out loud. This is how to harness your God given power. Now continue to work and play and rest and enjoy your life and then allow yourself to receive that which you have called to you from a state of peaceful relaxation.

There is another simple truth here, and that is that we are all born into these bodies and we are all going to die. When it is your time to go, nothing can stop it, but you cannot live your life as if you are dying, you must live while you are here no matter what pain and difficulty you are faced with, knowing you can survive it. When you see the faces of the random people who were murdered in the latest mass shooting, understand that it was their time to go. Their souls agreed to take part in that event to bring about change on the earth. Of course it’s terrible, and sad and horrific. But let’s not let their deaths be in vain, let’s create the change on this planet so that mass shootings do not occur. We do that by loving ourselves, claiming our power, connecting to Source and loving others. And enacting laws that stop the availability of weapons that can shoot multiple bullets to the public, and having strict background checks, amongst other obvious regulations.

God is more powerful than humans and the love that God has can be expressed through humans is greater than the hatred that comes through humans. Love wins. Own your power and be the loving human you were designed to be, knowing who you truly are and where your power comes from. Take total responsibility for your life, use your intuition and help others. Walk your talk.

Fear will get you no where you want to go. Kick fear to the curb. Trust is the antidote to fear.

Angels Are Everywhere

Are you aware that you are never alone on this planet even when you are by yourself?
Every single person on this planet has a “team” of Light Beings that surround them and are there to call upon when we need guidance and support. They are here to assist us in becoming our Highest Self and to express our Highest potential. They want us to love ourselves and each other in the way God loves us, unconditionally. 

You can talk to them just as you would talk to a friend and ask them for assistance with whatever you are learning or working to achieve. (My Higher Self is the One who writes these newsletters through me). They are assigned to you and they work for you on behalf of the Creator. Talk to them every day and you will begin to develop a wonderful relationship with them. Even if you can’t hear them or see them, trust that they are around you and listening to you.

They can communicate with you by dropping thoughts into your head. They can guide you by giving you instinctual or gut feelings on where to go and all of a sudden you will meet just the right person that will help you with whatever it is you’re working on. They can also give you messages through songs on the radio, billboards, books, number sequences, bumper stickers, things that people say to you out of the blue and through mediums, intuitives and psychics. When I am receiving a sign from the Universe, there is an energy around it that is different that makes me pay attention. I often see the various members of my team as sparks of light; blue, purple, white, gold, and green. Sometimes they will drop feathers or pennies to let you know they are around you. 

We each have a Higher Self, and some people also refer to our Higher Self as our Guardian Angel. We also have Guides, who come into our lives at certain times to help us with specific lessons we are learning. Once we learn those lessons, those particular guides may leave and a new one may enter. Guides are generally beings that have lived on the earth plane in a body. They are more familiar with the challenges of being a human in a body and the emotions we experience, so they are better equipped for guiding us in earthly matters. We also have Ascended Masters, Archangels, Master Teachers, Nature Spirits and deceased loved ones that can be a part our team. Often times a deceased relative will come through in my sessions to let that person know that they are still loving them, just from another realm. Love never dies. They can watch the grandchildren grow up even if they are no longer embodied. This is often very comforting to know and takes the pain away around their physical absence.

In the sessions I give to people, the messages that come through are always so beautiful and pertinent to what the person is going through in their lives and offer new perspectives on the issue at hand. I can always tell the messages are from them because there is never any judgement and they are extremely loving, patient and understanding of what we endure as humans. 
Earth is by far the most challenging place to incarnate as a soul because it is so painful and violent here (as well as joyous and beautiful). It’s a real mixed bag here on Earth because it is a place of duality. And the lessons can be incredibly challenging, like losing a child. It often doesn’t make sense to people that there is a God that would allow such horrific things to happen to people. But once you understand the way it works, it’s easier to grasp the bigger picture and accept that this is the way it is and we come here, as souls to learn, experience and evolve. Everything is for us, we are never punished. It doesn’t make losing a child any less painful, there will still be a deep sense of loss. But on some level, there may be a knowing that it was all in Divine order, so that soul could experience that level of loss in that lifetime. 

I have had my share of struggle and pain and still I know I can choose to let go of the past at any time and create victory, abundance, love and joy in my life in spite of those difficulties I endured. Those obstacles and challenges were put there to strengthen and open me even more to love. Loss is a great teacher. It teaches to love who and what you have right here in this moment with your whole heart. We are the spark of the Divine so we can create anything. We just need to own it all as our soul’s creation. This is a concept that our human mind may not be able to comprehend, but our soul knows why we choose what we choose.

Most Angels that surround us have not been embodied, but I understand that many newer Angels that are arriving now have been in a body before. I have a team of 12 Healing Angels that I work with regularly. Whenever I hear of someone asking for prayers, I will talk to my team of Healing Angels and ask them to go to that person who the prayers are being sent to and surround them with healing light. If someone is having a surgery, I will send my team to guide the Doctor’s hand and to comfort everyone involved. If I pass a car accident, I will send my Angels to comfort everyone involved. We all have the ability to do this. You only have to believe and ask. Acknowledge them often and thank them for all they do for you, others and the planet!

We are at a point in the timeline of our existence here on Earth that we need humans to become aware of the Higher Beings that are alongside us in the invisible realm. Well, it’s invisible to most people, but for those who have the ability to tap into the other dimensions, we can clearly see the Divine assistance that surrounds us at all times. This is not made up, it is not woo-woo (I do not like that term) and it is very real! The more people who know this truth and speak out, the more mainstream society will be able to accept it. If everyone knew the truth of who we are, what we are doing here and who can assist us, then there would be a lot less suffering and struggle on this planet. As we learn to access our God given power, along with that comes Divine assistance in the form of these incredibly helpful, supportive, loving, encouraging Beings of Light who can guide us if we know how to connect with them. Talk to them and ask them to assist you with whatever it is you need.

We Are Creators!

Happy Spring everyone! The most beautiful energies are upon us and there is so much Light being sent to our Earth for regeneration and renewal of our planet and all the beings who live here. Have you been feeling it? Lately, I’ve been seeing posts and articles that resonate with these regenerating energies, there are beautiful fields of wildflowers blooming on the mountain sides in California, where once there was only brown, dying grass after the fires that devastated so much of the state. There are acres of wildflowers blooming in Texas after floods that swamped the lands. Species of turtles and owls that were thought to be extinct have suddenly reappeared. Mother Earth is giving us hope through signs that our own lives can be restored and that re-birth and abundance is available to us.

Whatever we have gone through, endured and suffered can be healed. Our hearts can be mended, broken relationships can be reestablished, our bank accounts restored, our faith in humanity uplifted. We can grow new bodies if we need to do that! (See my book recommendation below). Whatever you have been going through that has tested you over a long period of time can shift. The energies support our transformation right now! So allow your mind and thoughts to support the shift for you. Let go of the thoughts that may be keeping you stuck in a pattern that you feel will never change. That your life circumstances will never get better and you are doomed to suffer whatever it is you are suffering. It is just not true. “Bad things happen to good people” all of the time. We can’t stay stuck in the past forever, we are meant to let the past go and live our lives in the present moment so we don’t miss the gifts that the Universe is trying to give us. Align your thoughts with the truth that your issue can and will transform and be healed. Expect support and even miracles!

I recently watched the movie Meru, which tells the story of 3 mountain climbers whose quest is to climb to the top of the Shark’s Fin route in the Himalayas in India on the Meru Peak. No one has ever reached the summit of this peak. Their first attempt is long and arduous and they have to turn back 100 yards from the summit after a 4 day storm hinders their success. They vow to try again at a later date. What happens next is fascinating to me. Each man endures his own personal struggle. One man has a skiing accident and breaks open his skull and 2 vertebrae are damaged. He spends the next year rebuilding his body. Another man is caught in a heavy duty avalanche and survives without a scratch, but it shakes him to his core both mentally and emotionally. He spends the next year re-evaluating his life and repairing his psyche. The third man loses his climbing partner to an accident and then finds another climbing partner who then dies in an avalanche. These deaths affect him deeply and he spends the next year in an intense grieving period, also questioning his own path.

They each experience their own unique challenges and in the process of facing their fears, they emerge on the other side stronger and more determined than ever. Even though the man who is injured could potentially suffer a stroke in the high altitudes, they all decide to attempt the climb again and they set a date. Lo and behold, they make it to the summit in a sublime ascent. It’s amazing to me, the grit and determination these men had and what it took for them to overcome all they had faced and how beautifully they worked together to reach their goals and summit a mountain no one had been able to conquer before. This is an example of true grace after hardship.

It is the same for any of us, no matter what you have been experiencing personally; whether it is a disease, chronic back pain, the death of a loved one, a betrayal, financial ruin, an accident, losing your home, losing your job or a combination of the above. You can reach your summit. It takes a change of heart, the right mind set, steadfast belief in yourself and your Higher Self, faith that the Universe is conspiring in your favor, trust and surrendering yourself to the flow. It takes facing your shadow self and your deepest fears about who you are and your place in this world, overcoming those fears and trusting in the uncertainty of what lies ahead. It takes a firm and sure decision to create your best life no matter what has happened in the past.

Two years ago I experienced a big set back when the man I married turned out to be abusive and I had to flee my home and I was left with debt to repay. In a 4 month window, I lost everything including my dog who was shot by a neighbor. I lost my dream, my dog, my husband, friends and my hope. I nearly lost my life on the last night with him. I had severe PTSD from his narcissistic gas lighting, his pathological lying and the abuse. It took me months to work through all that had transpired. I didn’t know what was real and what was a lie. I wasn’t myself, I was severely traumatized and I felt like I was on the edge of losing my mind.

While this was happening, my friend was sending me money which was supporting me while I wasn’t working. I was so messed up in the head. She did not ask to be repaid, so that I could be stress-free. It was such an incredible gift and blessing. I could not have done it without her. My gratitude was and still is immense. Meanwhile, old addictions resurfaced and I would take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. Slowly, over time, I began to heal all that was broken within me. I later learned that what I went through with my husband was a karmic clearing. I had harmed him in a previous lifetime and I was just receiving back what I had given out in another life. Once I left him, I specifically did not seek vengeance because I did not want to incur more karma and have to go through that again in the next life! So now my slate is clean. It has been nearly 2 years and I have become more stable within my own center. I have learned even deeper truths about discernment, humility, responsibility, forgiveness and I’ve discovered how strong I really am. I’m believing in myself and trusting the Universe again. I am now learning about regeneration! And I now pray for him every day that he is healed and learns how to give and receive love.
That’s my story. I look around me and I see what everyone else is going through whether it’s losing a parent to pancreatic cancer, contracting Lyme Disease, losing a child to suicide, or living with debilitating chronic pain. People have lost their homes to fires, been deceived by con artists and everyone is suffering in some way or another. We are all being given an opportunity to transform ourselves!

We are incredibly powerful beings! We can do anything we put our minds to. That saying exists for a reason because if we set our minds to do something, we can accomplish any feat. First we change our hearts and then we can program our mind by telling it what we want it to think. I recently have been talking to my body and asking it to heal and it has been responding to my requests. Every night before I go to sleep I ask my body to do one specific thing such as realign my spine, or heal my knee or produce more DMT molecules, or boost the serotonin levels in my brain. We have the power to create these shifts within ourselves. Believe it! We are creators, and creators have the power to transform. The Universe is electro-magnetic and whatever you feed with your energy, you charge and manifest in the physical world.
Whatever it is in your life that has caused you to feel helpless and hopeless, or depressed and anxious, know that you can heal from it and something magnificent is on its way to you. Diamonds are formed with a tremendous amount of heat and pressure. Become the diamond that you are. Believe it is all happening for you, no matter how heartbreaking or exhausting it is. The transformation and transmutation will occur. You are loved, you are powerful, you are creators!

Honor Your Process to Living Your Best Life

We are well into 2019 and the energies feel good! Many of us are in a process of rebirthing into a new version of ourselves. While we are in a physical body, we are constantly in a state of evolution which involves the death and rebirth cycle. There are periods of rest, which is an invaluable stage, but then we move into flow again once we enter our next growing phase. The new version of who we are becoming is our Higher, or Best Self.

There’s a lot that needs to happen to merge with our Higher Self. We must first do the work to clear out what is in our shadow closet. The shadow self is comprised of the parts of us that we deny because we don’t like those aspects of ourselves and we don’t want anyone to know they are there and we lock them away in a closet. But wholeness consists of accepting all of ourselves, even the parts we don’t like… To release the shadow into the light to become whole, we must first be aware of which aspects of ourselves we hide away from ourselves and others. This requires awareness and honesty. It is best shown to you through others. The next step is to learn to love those parts of ourselves and integrate them into our personality. This step takes radical self-acceptance and forgiveness. The process doesn’t have a timeline, it requires your willingness, attention and desire to change. It is in this process that we learn to love ourselves, ALL of ourselves.

As you integrate all parts of yourself, you will be neutralizing lower energies such as shame, blame, guilt, self-hatred, regret, doubt and fear. All of the lower emotions that were attached to those parts of yourself that you hid, will now be released and freed up from your energy field and your body. How you once felt about yourself on a subconscious level will change and you will adopt a better self image. Once those lower emotions are eliminated from your cells and energy field, you can hold more Light and feel more JOY. Joy is a higher feeling which we may need some time getting used to feeling, especially if we are used to being sad or miserable or looking for the next problem to fix. At some point, you can stop looking for what to fix about yourself, because the majority of the misaligned thoughts, perceptions and memories will have been realigned with the truth of who you are. The truth is; you are a beautiful soul, full of love, inhabiting this body in this lifetime, doing your best and you are deeply loved. Any perceived mistakes you have made were only ever to help you learn and grow. We are here to learn to love and to help one another. Remember, we are meant to enjoy our life on earth!

As your light body begins to hold more light as you feel these higher feelings, you will begin to vibrate at a higher frequency. You may notice that the same friends you’ve had for years suddenly fall away. If your frequencies are no longer a match, certain people will bounce out of your energy field and life. Do not fight this process, honor your new frequency and let those people go. Allow new people who match your vibration come into your life. There will be a lot of these shifts in relationships happening this year. Do not cling to the past, step into the new. It is so natural to want to grieve what we once had, allow time for this and then welcome the new. The new earth energies support our faster transitions between the past and the present. Meaning, it will be easier for us to let go. These vibrational shifts also apply to work environments and living spaces.

One way to allow for smoother transitions is to continue to bring your awareness into the present moment. If you find your mind wanting to ruminate on the past, gently guide your thoughts back into the now and focus your mind on what is your highest priority for attaining peace in this moment. Keep training your mind to be in the present moment. The present moment is always the point of power where we CREATE. As you continue to learn how to do this, you will be practicing your creation skills. There is no greater power that humanity has been given than Creating from Love. There are so many avenues for creating; birthing a child, a painting, a book, a dance, a meal, an outdoor adventure, a retreat, music, building a house, knitting a sweater, teaching a class, telling a story, and on and on. The Universe has unlimited options for creating.

Humanity is at the point of transitioning from victim consciousness into Creator Consciousness. This is when we, as a collective, take our God given power back! We are doing this by altering our inner world. As we adjust our dial and realign any misaligned frequencies in accordance with the truth, we create the Grand Shift. This is a huge project that is overseen by God. Imagine the amount of suffering that has to take place for one person to pry their overly conditioned mind open enough to see the Light of the truth and then surrender to it and learn to trust in the Higher Power. It takes a lot. And there are 7 billion of us doing this. That’s a big project. The Shift is from leading through one’s head/ego into the Heart/Spirit. The Heart is the master, the head is the obedient servant. Do you see the enormity of this? Be understanding, compassionate and patient with yourself and others as we attend to this Divinely guided process.

If you are experiencing the challenging feelings of the transition phase, immersed in the sea of mystery, do not give up hope, for your new self, your best self is waiting to greet you on the shore ahead. He/ She is full of love for you, wants only the best for you and is full of Golden Light. The journey may seem long and arduous and some days are easier than others, but success comes after failure, the highest heights are reached after the greatest ruin. Experiencing these opposites creates the depth within a human being who, through alchemy, is becoming his/her Divine Self embodied. Each individual must balance the energies of heaven and earth as well as the masculine and the feminine. By doing this, one balances the alignment of the cross that represents the Divine human and allows a point of entry of Light through the heart, the center point of the cross. A light activation. Listen, pay attention, surrender to this truth.

This is life, we are all in it, let’s love ourselves and each other through it. Let’s offer more understanding and less judgment. Treat the other as you wish to be treated. The other is you. If you want to be loved, then love.
Many blessings on your path.

In Love & Truth,

The New Way of the New Earth

We are well into the energies of the Great Shift on Earth where we can make the choice ever day to create a vortex of energy which follows the path of Ascension. This vortex of energy that we create in our daily lives through our conscious thoughts and intentions that we make, will help to lift ourselves, others and the planet up to a healthy state. When enough people on this planet are living their lives consciously and positively, the vortex of energy will move us into another realm of existence that is aligned with the Truth and is no longer connected with the downward spiral of destruction.

There is currently so much deconstruction taking place on planet Earth. It is happening at a rapid rate. That which no longer serves the whole is being torn down. Yet this destruction is necessary in order for the New Way to be birthed. The New Way consists of sustainable solutions for the food we eat, the proper disposing or composting of our waste, the cleaning of the air we breathe, the water we drink and the ways in which we treat our brothers and sisters. How we inhabit this earth and take care of the animals, the vegetation and the waters as well as the rocks and minerals is critical for our survival. We are focusing on the basics, because we are at ground zero in re-creating what humanity’s existence means here on this planet. The destruction cycle must be replaced by the creation cycle in order for all beings to move forward on the timeline of existence.

We are at a point in our collective journey where we must think of ourselves as One. Mother Earth is a living breathing organism, our Home, and she requires all of her children living on her to work together to find solutions that will heal her waters, her soil, her air and her heart. She is in need of deep respect and healing. This is the reason that many women are being brought into leadership positions. Women are the nurturers, the bearers of life and they know what is needed to heal our Mother and its children. This is why the return of the Divine Feminine is occurring at this time.

There is a great awakening taking place on the Earth. As more and more individuals experience their own personal awakening, the energy of awakening is being added to the collective Global Mind and it is taking place through the Universal Heart. Have you noticed that you have begun to understand new concepts and receive new ideas that were once so foreign to you that are connected to how we can unite and love one another and live in a different kind of world? Have you noticed that new ideas are coming to you seemingly out of nowhere and more and more, that your understanding of how things have been on this planet for so long and what is needed for change? This is the collective awakening! We are all being lifted up, awakened, shown the truth because it is time for the New Way or simply, The Way to take hold as our reality.

Humans were originally designed to follow the path of their Spirit, their Heart and the way of God or the Universe which is all about oneness, love, harmony, taking care of one another and living in nature in peace. Leading our lives through our heart is The Way, it has always been The Way and it will always be The Way. We can clearly see when that way is not honored, what life is like on this planet. And we can see that this is not what we want to experience. The time of oppression and suffering and greed are coming to an end. What is imbalanced shall be balanced in the Great Shift.

When enough people have gone through their personal version of The Shift to the new consciousness, then a critical mass will form and suddenly everyone will become aware of the New Reality and its heart-centered values. That is the day when heart-centered values will become the focus of everyday thinking for the vast majority of people. That is the day when humanity will begin to look back on what has changed and realize that a massive shift has occurred. One of the qualities of the New Way is that we must take care of everyone. We must be concerned with the Highest Good of All. If it only works for a few, it isn’t working…this is what we are experiencing now with the 1%.

The way to move into the Highest Vibration to support the emergence of your True Self is to practice unconditional love of your Self. Once this is learned, you will then begin to practice unconditional love of the other. The other is you and you are the other because we are all One. Sometimes this needs to be learned in steps, but this is not always true. If you have experienced deep trauma in recent years, there may be an unfolding that happens in stages. Be compassionate and patient with yourself as you release all of the traumatic energies imprinted in your cells. It may feel very turbulent as you do this and you may not feel like your ‘normal’ self until the process is complete.

Wherever you are in your process of aligning your self with your True Self, love your self through it, every single step, every disappointment, every “mistake”, just keep loving your Self.

Blessings on your Ascension Path

Surrender to the Flow

When we experience challenges or difficulties in our lives, we may wonder how we got where we are when our intended destination was completely different than where we ended up. But rather than wallow in self pity, it’s imperative to look at our life and realize that our loving God parents (as in Mother / Father God) are just polishing our rough edges off so that we may shine brighter and rise higher than we ever imagined we could.
There is a flow in the Universe, a river of Supreme energy, which undulates, spirals, twists and turns in a perfect and harmonious path. Just like a river of running water, we can immerse our being into it and flow effortlessly along with its natural force. This river is the primordial Light which comes directly from Source energy and has it’s own intelligence and is comprised of Love.
The main way that humans resist this flow is by having an idea of how their lives should be and setting their minds to a narrow script of how those things should come about. This controlling mindset blocks the flow and sets up “resistance” within our cells. The antidote to trying to control every little thing because we are fearful…is to surrender to the flow of what God’s design is for your life. And remember, God’s design is always better than your own! Times a gazillion!
How do you determine what is your will and what is God’s will? If something is not aligned with God’s will for you, it will continue to cause problems in your life if you stay with it or pursue it. This could be a personal, romantic or business relationship, a career path or job, a place where you are living or working, just to name a few. For example; a friend of mine knows when it’s time to release the place where she practices her healing  because something unusual happens and she has learned how to read the signs. One time there was a mold infestation in her office and another time, there was a flood. Both of these incidents were signs that it was time to move on and into a better space, which is exactly what happened. The first space was good for her for 6 years, then she was in the second space for 6 months and now she’s loving her new space.  She wasn’t stuck on a certain time frame, she just went with the flow.  This is a reminder that nothing is permanent, everything changes. We don’t need to hold on, we can invite change and understand that something better is waiting for us if we just trust in the flow of where we are being moved to next. God’s will for you becomes evident when you let go of what you’re clinging to. Always check to see if you are holding onto something out of fear. If you are fearful, then you are not creating your life from a place of love.
If you are resisting letting something go or changing then you will just continue to butt up against the same obstacle over and over and maybe it will show up in a different form of difficulty, but it will be the same obstacle. Sometimes, if the resistance to the flow is too great, you will get a Universal smack down to understand that it’s time to change. I think we all know what this is like…not fun. Learning to let go easily and gracefully is the key! Life really is about learning to let go, over and over. The older we get, the more we know this to be true. And it’s ok.
A great way to practice surrender is through the yoga pose, savasana, or corpse pose. Lie down on your back, with your arms and legs out-stretched like a starfish on the ground, yoga mat, or earth. Allow your entire body to relax completely. Close your eyes and breathe. Attune your body and senses to the river of light energy that is flowing all through and around you.  Imagine that you are floating within it and it is carrying you, as if you are on a magic carpet ride, through time and space. Now understand this river of energy you are floating in wants to take you somewhere wonderful. Allow yourself to float along in the energy, trusting that you will be taken to just the right place. Breathe, relax, let go, trust, believe and allow yourself to receive what is coming in to your life. Of course, we don’t say yes to everything that shows up, we need to practice discernment. But do say yes to what feels good in our hearts when we check in with ourselves. Sure, change can be a little scary because we don’t know where we are going and what it’s going to be like when we get there, but that’s where trust and faith come in. Trust in the design that God/Goddess has for your life.
Peace out. Peace in…

Creating a New Self-Image for the New You

Self-image is how you see yourself. This may be how you see yourself physically or your opinion of who and what you are. How we see ourselves creates a vibration or frequency that determines what we will attract to us and create for ourselves in our life.
“Self-image is the mental picture, generally of a kind that is quite resistant to change, that depicts not only details that are potentially available to objective investigation by others (height, weight, hair color, etc.), but also items that have been learned by that person about themself, either from personal experiences or by internalizing the judgments of others. A simple definition of a person’s self-image is their answer to the question “What do you believe people think about you?”~ Wikipedia
Have you ever stopped to examine the thoughts and images that you have about yourself and who you think you are? This image may change from year to year depending on what happens in your life; if you are experiencing health issues, you may begin to see yourself as weak or sick, which affects your whole being. Or if your health declines, you may become determined to get to the root of the issue, heal yourself and you may see yourself as indestructible and determined, as well as strong. It all depends on your response to the issue that arises and your attitude. Other factors that may influence your self-image are your aging process, your financial status, your work and purpose in the world, where you live, as well as your relationship status, whether you’re a new mom, single or divorced. The externals of our world are always changing. What we ideally need to create is an internal self image that is consistently positive, loving, feels good and is in harmony with the world and everything in it.
Take a moment and write down in your journal or on a piece of paper all of the positive thoughts and ideas you have about who you are. Respond also to the question, “What do you believe people think about you?”
Now write down any negative thoughts you have about who you are and what you are experiencing in your life as well as what you believe others think of you.
We can always change our self-image, we just need to be aware of what it is. Be honest as you write everything down, even if it feels uncomfortable.
How to Create a New Self Image
It’s time to create a new self image! The right self-image is critical to your success. Now that you have written down both the positive and negative aspects of who you think you are and how you see yourself, I want you to make a big X over the paragraph or sentences of all of the negative words you wrote down about you. Write the opposite of what you wrote as being your negative qualities. Complete your list so that everything is positive. Now add to your list all the qualities that you want to develop. Think of the amazing role models in your life or the people whom you admire and their attributes, and add those to your list. Once your list is complete, take a blank piece of paper and with a magic marker, write down all the qualities in a list and tape it to your wall. I have 40 positive qualities on my list. Feel free to add to it as you think of more. I have the word human up there to state that even though sometimes I get frustrated, angry or irritable, or other uncomfortable emotions that I express, I am human and it’s ok! For the next 3 weeks or 21 days, say out loud, “I AM” and then read all the attributes on the list.
Along with this list, create a visualization of yourself as you would like to be, this new person you are becoming. See how you are dressed, that your eyes are full of light, and you are smiling, see yourself as embodying all of those qualities on your list. Perhaps you can visualize specific scenes, such as yourself speaking on a stage, or bicycling on a mountain trail, or signing a book you wrote for a long line of people, or swimming in the ocean, or whatever it is that you want to be doing or creating in your life. Visualize those images over and over again for 21 days and keep going with it.
Positive self-talk is another factor to transforming your self image. When you speak about yourself to others, if you notice that you put yourself down or if you speak negative words about yourself, say out loud, “Cancel, clear, delete” and then say positive words about yourself. Continue this practice and you will notice a change. Along these lines, it’s also a great practice to speak only positive words about others.
Self-care is how you treat yourself. Do you have a fitness routine? Are you getting into nature regularly? Do you take classes and courses in what interests you? Do you treat yourself as you would like to be treated? Begin to pour love onto yourself and buy yourself those flowers, new sheets, get your hair done beautifully, plan that long hike with a friend, book that cruise, take that photo class, learn to make jewelry, study Spanish, buy that rug, take guitar lessons, do that 30 day detox program, dine out with friends and invest in yourself. As you treat yourself like a Queen or King, you will feel your confidence growing. As you support and encourage your Self, you will feel the love you crave.
Just keep going. Keep doing it. Transformation takes time. Bigger transformations take more time. Creating a new you takes a strong desire to experience something different that you have in the past. You must be at that place where you are so done with the old patterns that you are willing to change like never before and not in a desperate way, but in a determined way. You know the life you want is right there, within reach, and you CAN do it!
Our Higher Self and God sees us as magnificent and beautiful beings who are already perfect without any judgement on our actions and behavior. When we stop judging ourselves and move into a place of self-acceptance, accepting all of who we are, we can get over the self-hatred and shame and just work on improving ourselves continuously with love and support.
So who do you want to be? Take care not to limit yourself. You can be a humanitarian and a teacher and a cook and a world-traveller and a painter. There is so much available to us! Enjoy this process of becoming, add to it, love yourself through all of it. Be bold and creative, make adjustments as needed. Be playful and compassionate. You deserve the very best that life has to offer, because you are a beautiful light in a body that has come to earth to experience whatever you want. Become the Queen and King that you are, magnificent and regal.
Blessings on your path!

Life Cycles & Oneness Consciousness

In all of life on earth there exists cycles of nature. The human life is no exception. We start out as little seeds in the dark (the womb), we have a period of gestation until we are ready for our next phase. The little seed grows in the dark, undergoing a time of struggle as it pushes its way up toward the light. Then the little seedling’s head pops out of the dark soil and the sun shines upon the little green bud. There, once the light draws it upward, growing its roots and stalk, and shines on its leaves, it begins to grow and grow until a flower opens, unfurling its precious petals one at a time until it realizes its full potential and blossoms into all its glorious wonder. After its time in the sun, the petals dry up and fall, one at a time, back to the earth, as does the entire plant, when it reaches the end of its cycle of life, it experiences the death. During the death cycle, its essence returns to whence it came from and a new beginning emerges out of the ethers, into the soil and the cycle begins again.
We humans experience many death and rebirth cycles in our lifetime. Where are you in your cycle? Although the death cycle feels the least enjoyable, it is a necessary part of our process. Think of each cycle as an opportunity to move up another circle of a spiral that opens into wider and wider circles. This is the pattern of human evolution. It is necessary for an old part of us to die so that a new us can be born. You may mourn that old you that you no longer are, your youthful self, your single self, your mother self, there are many stages that we move through in this journey of life. Let us look forward to the reinvention of ourselves on every level through each of these cycles. Just as we mourn what we feel we have lost or are losing, we can welcome what we are to become. Take a woman who finds out she is pregnant and begins to feel the loss of her freedom, which is a natural part of being a single woman. She can mourn the loss of her single self but will welcome her blossoming into full motherhood and moving beyond caring for herself alone. Now she who was once one, divides and becomes two. She will never be the same again.
Life is a beautiful and challenging design all at once. Fast forward and now the same woman who 18 years later has raised her child, when the child leaves home, she feels that pang in her heart at the emptiness of the nest, yet now she has regained her freedom when she is older and knows the value of how she can fill those hours with her own soul’s longing of how it wants to express itself. It is her time now and whatever creative endeavor she chooses is hers to decide. We can always reinvent ourselves. Where once we were a corporate staffer, now we can become an artist. Most people get stuck into one way of being and they don’t want to change or they don’t know how. Life always gives you that choice of becoming who your soul urges you to be in its many layers of varied expression. The process can be scary and it can be beautiful. Honor where you are in the cycle of life and death. Even at 70 you can experience a rebirth and made like new, the choice is yours.
Each new phase energetically lifts you upward on your Ascension path into greater awareness. Simply surrender to the flow of the Divine river of Life. With greater awareness comes alignment with Divine consciousness, where we come to “know” our true selves and move beyond the mind and the body and into the oneness of being. It is natural for us to be in the more egocentric state when we are young and beautiful. But if you look at the grand design of the human lifetime, as we age, we are asked to cast off the ego mind and let go of the attachment to the beauty of the body, in its perfection and begin to see through the eyes of our heart, knowing that we are beautiful no matter if the body is perfectly formed or if it is wrinkled and the shape is different. Parts that were once firm are sagging and the vibrant color of the skin fades. The flower never judges its wilting leaves and laments at the loss of its perfect petals, so why should we? The focus no longer has to be on what it once was, it is natural for us to move beyond our self, and come to care not about the body beautiful, or concern ourselves as much with materialistic matters, but care more for the spirit, the essence of the soul in the body and to make sure that all of our brothers and sisters are cared for, not just our selves. We are all connected through our spirit, our hearts by the One Universal heart.
There comes a time in our life cycle when, if we cultivate it, we have concern that all of us, the entire population of the planet, including our precious animals, insects, minerals, plants and Mother Earth are cared for because we come to know the oneness of our existence. We understand the interdependence and interconnectedness of all of life as a harmonious web of life, woven together with a needle of grace and thread of perfection. This time of caring for all of life beyond our self is the embodiment of the 7th chakra, the Crown chakra, or Sahasrara, which translates to a thousand petals (of light). It is at the 49 year mark that this chakra for the spiritual aspirant, or anyone who serves God, becomes fully developed. We can become attuned to the needs of the One Family under the One Sun and Moon on this Earth. We come to realize that we are all the same as each other, no matter our race, our sex, our preferences, we are each other. What I do to you, is the same as what I do to me and vice versa.
In each lifetime, as the wheel turns, we come back as someone we have not been before, experiencing new circumstances, lessons and blessings, so that we can come to know all of it.  If I had murdered in one lifetime, I may experience being killed at the hand of my victim in the next. If I ruled as a selfish king, hoarding all the gold to myself, in the next lifetime I may come back as a penniless slave under the rule of a wretched leader. If I chose a short lifetime and died as a baby, in the next I may live to be 105 years old. We all get to experience what it feels like to receive the consequences of our actions and come to know all sides of the coin.
If you were born with karma, which is most of us with the exception of some of the children being born now, you will have to clear it in this lifetime or the next to move up to the next level on your evolutionary pathway. And sometimes, that clearing can feel quite brutal and not seem to make much sense. Know this…once the karma is cleared, it is done, so do your best to dust yourself off and move forward, knowing that you now have a clean slate. Life is about letting go, so learning how to let go is a valuable gift! Just as the flower does not cling to the dried up petal, and releases it to the wind, so too must we release and surrender over and over, back into the flow of the river of life. To learn the art of letting go is to suffer less and less. And always, always practice gratitude for what you have now, right here, in this moment, even if it comes to your very last few breaths, thank you, thank you, thank you for this life….until you return to the essence of spirit.

And for those of you who are concerned and outraged with what the American government is doing and (has done for decades), know that the individuals who are responsible will be paying for every last decision and action they are making. What can we do besides vote them out? We can “Do all the good you can, To all the people you can, In all the ways you can, As long as ever you can.” ~ John Wesley
