Eclipse Blues

Are you feeling “off” now that the eclipse is over?  I know I am.  Leading up to the eclipse I was experiencing a great deal of fatigue and anxiety.  Now that the eclipse is over I feel depressed and even more fatigue.  The energy of the eclipse brought a lot of my issues to the surface.   I had been happily ignoring them where they were buried.

Now that those issues are uncovered I have no choice but to face them.  Yes, of course, there is always a choice, but do I really want to let those buried emotions come out of their hidey holes in inappropriate ways any longer?  Nope.

 

I live in an old historic school-house and the building is quite large.  I live here with many other people.  The weird thing is that for some reason everyone but me left for an extended period of time and I am here all by myself.  I live on the very top floor in the attic.  My first night alone I was completely creeped out to be here by myself.  I hardly slept at all and I was too afraid to go down stairs to pee in the middle of the night so I used a Tupperware container to relieve myself in.

The next morning I was able to get in touch with just how ridiculous my fear of being alone in the school was.  I decided to see those night time fears as a metaphor for all the scary monsters in my unconscious’ closet.  I haven’t peed in Tupperware since!  The point is, my issues (monsters in my closet) are all fears, fear of being abandoned, fear of rejection, fear of not having enough money, fear of being alone, and the list goes on and on.  Fear is what wants to be healed right now and I am going with it.

There is a huge physical response when you let go of something that no longer serves you.  It is like a virus that your body is trying to purge.  The symptoms can be very similar.  In my case, the virus (fear) is still wiggling around in my body trying to find purchase.  The eclipse was the microscope that found the virus and my intention to heal is the antigen that will bring me back to myself.

Fear isn’t the enemy though.  It was created to keep us safe.  Back in the day, this was necessary for survival.  Fear told us when to run and hide from the giant saber tooth tiger that wanted to eat us.  As humanity evolved fear took on a new role.  It adapted to its new environment.   No longer is it needed to warn us of saber tooth tigers.  Now days fear tells us to be afraid of everything and everyone.  It even tells us to fear love.  Yet love is the only thing that can face fear and shine a light on the truth.

I am going to say this right here and you may wince when you read this.  I still need my fear.  I am not always paying attention and I want a warning if I am in harms way.  I have a strong survival instinct within me and fear can help me stay alive.  Where it gets tricky is knowing when you are in danger or just being afraid because you are afraid. This is where discernment comes in.

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary discernment is the quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure.   The very nature of fear is obscure which means it’s hidden in darkness.  Think about the moon hiding the sun during an eclipse.  If the moon is our fears and the sun is our light then we can see how the Universe is giving us a metaphor that is impossible to miss.

How do we get to discernment?  Here are some of the tools I use:

  • I write every day.  I have a 500 word a day practice.  You can read about how I go about this here
  • yoga & meditation
  • Pranayam – you can’t hold fear in your body and breathe deeply at the same time (wise words from my first yoga teacher)
  • music – mantra music really works well for this
  • connecting with nature
  • move your body – walking, dancing, tai chi, etc.
  • long, hot baths
  • anything that gets me out of my head and into my heart.

This message isn’t about eliminating fear.  It is about using fear to our advantage.  I live in a world where fear thrives.  That is the nature of living on this planet where duality is the theme.  I don’t believe we are to ignore fear, or expunge it, nor deny it.  The key to enlightenment isn’t the absence of fear but freedom from it.  It is up to us to choose it.

Are Your Carrying Yourself In a Sacred Way?

“Are you carrying yourself in a sacred way,” Grandmother spirit guide asked?

This is the question I reflect on every morning lately.  It reminds me to take a deep breath, straightened my spine and say. . . Yes.

Yes, to life.  Yes, to love.  Yes, to me.

It also reminds me to love myself in a way I am unfamiliar with.  To carry myself in a sacred way means unconditional love of self.  That means to love my body.  To love my mind.  To love my spirit.  Accepting myself exactly as I am is what carrying myself in a sacred way means to me.  What does it mean to you?

The Bigger Picture

change-begins-with-meDear Ones,

Do not be alarmed by the outcome of your election.  Whom ever you voted for trust that the highest good is in store for the planet.  You are not alone.  Even the darkest of nights can hold the most promising futures.  We invite you to look within and find the love in your heart.  Change, in all its forms, is a good thing.  You wanted change and you got it.  It may or may not be in the human body you voted for but change is upon you.  Embrace it.  Now is the time to shine your light brightly.  Now is the time to breathe deep, go within and love yourself.  Change begins with you.

Here are some suggestions to “be the change”:

  • breathe deeply
  • spend time in nature
  • connect with your animal friends
  • play with your kids
  • make love
  • take long delicious baths
  • cook and share a meal with your loved ones
  • have fun

All of these suggestions are to bring you into the present moment.  Fear is simply anxiety about the future.  Practice Presence.  It can be as simple as noticing the freckles on your child’s nose or smelling the fragrance of a flower.  Any time you bring yourself back into the NOW moment you empower yourself.  True power comes from within.

Remember the opportunity in every situation that occurs.  What will you choose:  Love or fear?

The Peace Bringer

breath-of-life-1Today’s message from my Spirit Guide Mother:

Today is a good day to get quiet and go within.  Trust in the safety of your soul’s embrace.  When you breathe and center your energies you help balance the chaos that is permeating the air.

You may feel guided to eat lighter and rest more.  Follow the wisdom of your body as it will speak to you in subtle ways and then more loudly if you do not listen.  When you take care of yourself it anchors the energy of peace on the planet.  Image your world if everyone listened to their body and practiced self-love.  Peace would prevail.

You are taught to do, do do and go, go, go.  Your modern technology has helped you forget the rhythms of the earth, the moon and stars.  Look to the moon with its waxing and waning.  It will show you the way of dark and light.  The dark moon is the time to go within, gather your resources and plant your seeds.  The full moon beckons you to shine your light for the world to see and reap the harvest of your planted dreams.

Only you can bring peace to the world.  Begin by closing your eyes . . . now take a deep breath in. . . now let it go. . . Ahhhhhh.  Notice how quickly you can release the tensions of the world simply by letting that deep breath go. . .

We Are The Reflection. . .

A message from my Spirit Guide Mother 4652653bc2b64c9651ac28b21d897442.

 

Hello Dear Ones,
.
My message is of peace this day.  You are coming close to a time of decision.  You think your decision needs to be about who will be your next leader.  Your choices are but a reflection of your times.  The leaders to be present them self in the most obvious of forms for your self-reflection.  One is a child in a mans body.  He represents your collective intellect.  He so desperately wants to be the king of the mountain that he pushes all the other kids out of the way to get there.  The other is a man in a woman’s body.  She represents your spiritual evolution.  She is showing you how the masculine is still out of balance on your world.    I do not say these things to offend but to have you look more closely at yourself.  Because, in the end, no matter who becomes your new leader it all comes down to who you are and not who they are.
.
Who you are becomes the collective reflection.  To bring the change you are so desperately clambering for look within.  Your great sage Ghandi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”  No wiser words have been said. . .

The Undiscovered Self

I wrote this post several years ago but am finding that I am having similar experiences these days.  Instead of finding undiscovered trails in the woods I am navigating uncharted territory in my life.   My business is taking new directions and I’m dating again after many months of mourning my last relationship.  I am scared but practicing fearlessness amidst all this change.  I hope you like the post.

I was guided to go to Carpenter Nature Center for my walk today.   Once I got there I found myself on a path I had never taken before.  I hesitated at first because it was unfamiliar and I didn’t know where or how far it would take me into the woods.  Being a woman alone in the woods can be a very frightening thing.  Because of the blustery Fall day it was quite spooky yet breathtakingly beautiful at the same time.  My mind started to take me to all sorts of frightening scenarios.  I soon realized my fear had more to do with my inner demons than anything I would find in these woods on this day.  This path I was on represented the part of Self that I was afraid to face.  This path was my Powerful Self, my Brilliant Self, my Talented Self, my Unlimited Self.

All these years of walking the paths of Carpenter Nature Center I had never even seen the one I walked today.  I knew this path was not the safe, familiar version of what I was used to.  I wanted to turn around several times and go back to what was known but I didn’t.  I kept forging ahead.  I knew that continuing on the path of the unknown would free me from my fearimage-11 of being Who I Really Am.

When I finally came to an area that I recognized I knew I had faced a part of my self that I have hidden from all my life.  I walked to the river and I built these cairns to represent my hopes and dreams for the future.

I walked out of those woods a new woman. I faced my fears.  I faced my Self.  I.  Am.

Inspired Vision

I was journaling this morning and asking my Spirit Guide Mother why I got sucked back into a place of longing and despair.  I was doing so well and then before I knew it I was lost.  Here is a poem I wrote about that journey.

Mother responded in this way:

You are never alone yet you see it not.  You are so easily distracted by the illusions of this world.  It is all fantasy.  Every bit of it.

What is real then, I ask?

You.

When you dwell in your heart you can see through the veil of illusion covering your eyes.

Can we transcend illusion during our lifetime?

Yes. 

By listening with your heart.

By seeing with your heart.

By breathing from your heart.

By acting from your heart.

Illusion will always be a veil covering your world.  It is up to you to choose to move the veil aside and live from a place of inspired vision.

Mother is right.  I haven’t been living from my heart lately.  I’ve been so distracted by what I don’t have in my life right now that I had forgotten about the things that I do have.  I had forgotten all the things that bring me joy.  Choosing joy over pain seems like such a simple thing . . .

Love Is Light Made Manifest

astronomy-wallpaper-5As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post I’ve recently connected with a new guide named Mother who helms from the Pleiades.  She recently shared with me another message and I thought I’d share with you.

All is well even if it doesn’t appear so.  Be not deceived by the chaos on Earth.  It has always been this way. Your species are becoming more sensitive to the harshness of this chaos as you evolve.  This makes you more “aware” of the energies that surround you than ever before.  It is important to connect to Earth energy as it has a grounding effect on you.  It will keep you from becoming overwhelmed by these fast-moving energy shifts.

.

It is easy to become anxious with all the fear that you are exposed to daily.  Your media contributes to this anxiety.  We are not saying to be uninformed yet are asking you to be discerning with how much you subject yourself too.  The fear that is surrounding you can only be diminished through your continued activation of light.  How you do this is through heart centered acceptance of yourself and others.

.

Judgement is literally destroying your species.  The more you focus on self-love and acceptance the more you can hold space for Peace on Earth.  Remember that Peace is stronger than fear.  You will prevail.  Do not give up on yourselves.  The darkness you are experiencing is all part of the journey towards enlightenment.

.

The true meaning of enlightenment is this:  That which has been hidden is emerging into the light.  Do not be afraid of the dark.  It is fear that threatens you and not darkness.  Darkness is merely an absence of light.  Love is light made manifest.

I’m Gonna Get “Weird” Here

In the past few days a new guide has come into my field.  Her name is Mother and she comes from the Pleiades.  I have never connected with someone like her before and I am honestly a little nervous to share with you her message.  Feeling very strongly that I must share here goes.

sacred-threshold-3Energy from the Sun is impacting Earth now.  You are being bombarded with negative ions that are affecting your central nervous system.  Not only the physical body is being affected by this energy but Earth’s body is as well.  You are being upgraded energetically and it is affecting every molecule of your being.  This “upgrade” may bring about a dark night of the soul for some.  All of your hidden spaces are being exposed to the light.  This is so you no longer hide your light from yourself and the world.  There may be discomfort during this process.  This upgrade can take the next three months to unfold.  Be patient with your body as it may protest at first as it adjusts to the new frequencies.  Your body and mind will ask for rest.  Listen to that.  Sea salt baths may help with the integration process of this upgrade.

I did look up to see if there was any science behind this and could not find any strong confirmations for you.  I do know that negative ions help us to feel healthier and more vibrant.  My sense is that this energy is being transmitted because most of us spend so much time indoors theses days.  Negative ions occur naturally around water, especially water falls.  Have you ever noticed how wonderful you feel after sitting by a body of water?

Why is this happening?  The more light we can hold in our body the less room for fear to thrive.

My personal journey has challenged me these past few months on every level.  All those scary places within are being brought to the surface and I can not unsee them!  This has brought about much discomfort both emotionally and physically.  As much as I want to be out in the world I want to hide just as much.  I sense this new guide will coax me out from under my covers over time.

Feel free to share if you are experiencing any challenges now.  It’s nice to know we are not alone.  I am hearing from others that symptoms can include:

  • extra heat in the body
  • thirst
  • stiffness
  • anger/frustration
  • depression/anxiety
  • extreme fear

I am offering hands on healing through the end of the year for donation.  This may help integrate the new energies more gracefully.  This can be done remotely but I prefer seeing you in person.  Each session is a half hour.  Hands on healing can include:

  • Chakra Balancing
  • Aura Cleasing
  • Sound Healing:  drum/toning/tuning fork
  • Body~Mind Attunements

I do want to say that this message does not bypass the need to seek confirmation from your health care provider if that is appropriate for you.  Always follow your intuition about body/mind symptoms that are occurring.
