This morning I was contemplating my life purpose. Wondering what it is all for and why am I here.  When I posed the question to Guidance this morning they said this.  Be the best human you can be.

Yes, but what does that mean, asked I?  We can tell you what it doesn’t mean.  You have been programmed to believe that your life purpose has to be some grand expression of self.  It doesn’t.  There was one Mother Theresa, one Louise Hay, one Buddha, one Jesus and only one You.  All of these notable people have one thing in common.  They were the best humans they could possibly be.  That intention is going to express itself differently for each and every one of you.  Sometimes it will show itself and the human will become well-known, like Wayne Dyer.  Other times that expression will be quieter and only a few will ever see.  When you think in this way your life purpose becomes clear.  We understand your longing for more meaning in your life.  That is the soul calling your best self to the surface.  Once you can get past the idea that it has to look a certain way you will find peace.

Never Again Will I Let You Go

Clinging-girlfriendThat’s the vow I made in a past life to the man I was in relationship for the past year and a half in this life.

I made that vow a very long time ago.  Long before I met him this time around.  I recently went through training to be certified in hypnosis.  Because I was the only student in this training we could focus on the topics that most interested me.  Past Life Regression was at the top of the list.

The beautiful Madonna Kettler, my hypnosis trainer, brought me through a past life regression so I could understand the experience more fully.  We went into the regression with the intention that I would gain more understanding as to why I was struggling to let this man go.  Past Life Regression can help one gain insight into current unconscious patterns that can show up to sabotage our lives.

During this regression I saw that this man and I were farmers in Ireland during the Iron Age.  We were twin brothers and were very close.  Being twins in another life explained to me why I felt so connected to him.  In our life in Ireland he died of an infection and two days later I hung myself because I could not bear to live without him.  That was when I swore that we would be together again and that I would never again let him go.

In this life we broke up at the beginning of this year.  We decided to stay friends but he slowly stopped taking my calls and I never heard from him again.  It felt very much like a death.  My grief was like nothing I had ever experienced before.  I would do really well for a little while and then the grief would start all over again.

After this regression I had a sense of peace and understanding of why I felt so strongly about this man.  I could finally let go. . . or so I thought.  The next morning my grief was more intense than ever!  I reached out to him yet again asking him if we could still be friends and he, again, did not respond. I kept hoping that his non-response was a maybe.  What ever his reasons he wasn’t able to give me the closure I wanted and felt I needed to move on.  I had to do this on my own.

That vow I made to not let him go has been my prison.  It has kept me grieving and still longing for connection with this man.  I went out into the woods and talked to some of my favorite trees and asked for help letting go.  I knew i needed to break the vow I made so long ago.  It was keeping us both trapped in a prison of attachment.  I could not fully move forward in my life unless I did this.  So, I set my intention, and asked for help in letting go from my Nature Spirit Helpers.

I didn’t magically let go with a walk in the woods.  Yet, that intention did bring me to getting another regression.  This final regression helped me to understand even more fully the connection with this man and gave me the tools to release him.  I feel free this time.

Not everyone believes in past lives.  It doesn’t really matter because healing can still occur regardless of that belief.  My unconscious was holding onto a pattern that was keeping me stuck.  Even if I made all of this up, my imagination is helping me to see through metaphor how to heal.  That is the beauty of past life regression.  It makes the unconscious conscious and once that occurs we no longer need to be trapped by our unconscious behaviors.

Having this experience helped me make sense as to why I was grieving as long as I did.  It also showed me why I had been unable to move on.  I am now a certified hypnotist and am looking forward to helping many others find the answers they seek.  Whether that be through past life remembrance, metaphor or symbology, this technology is a great way to tap into our unconscious for health, healing, and wholeness.  You can find out more here.

When In Deep Water, Become A Diver

2e84623d91ee63b02be6daafEverything we experience has a beginning, a middle, and and end, and is followed by a new beginning.  Therefore do not draw back from the passage into darkness:  When in deep water, become the diver. 

~Ralph Blum, The Book of Runes~

It is easy to retreat from darkness.  I feel It is the fear of the unknown that really frightens us.  I know this from my ability to skedaddle at a moments notice when darkness comes to call.  The real challenge in any situation is to hold still and allow the darkness to unfold around you.  We tend to think that the darkness will consume us.  That is not true.  If we could see the brightness of our own Being we would no longer be afraid of the dark.  We would never be afraid of anything again.

I ask my Guidance how do we recognize our own light?  Be still my child, you are so often running around, consumed by busyness that beingness can not be found.  Beingness, light, love are all within you.  Your fear keeps you from your knowing.  Be still.  Being still does not mean holding yourself tightly so that you can not breathe.  All things come to you on the breath.  All love, all light, everything comes to you when you breathe.

I Am So Much More Than Enough

11659391_10206554834805373_3697776803245896396_nOn July 20th I turned 50.  Believe it or not I have waited in anticipation for this day for the past year.  I awoke my birthday morning and I knew everything had changed.  I am not sure I can even explain how and I certainly don’t know why this change came to be.  I just suddenly knew that I had arrived!  I knew that I no longer had to live my life for anyone other than myself.  Its as if a switch was flipped on and I could finally. . . be.

I now have permission to:

  • live the life I envision
  • relax
  • not concern myself with what other people think of me
  • nap . . . often and without guilt
  • appreciate my curves
  • say no
  • make mistakes
  • play
  • laugh
  • dance

You see, I have always put pressure on myself.  I have never felt I was doing enough, being enough, healed enough, spiritual enough, fit enough, etc.  You name it and I wasn’t enough.  The last few days my “not enough” voice has disappeared.  In her place there is a new voice.  She says I am beautiful.  She says I carry out exactly what I need to when I need to.  She says I am powerful and capable.  She says I am so much more than enough. . .

Again, I’m not sure why this happened exactly on my 50th birthday.  It does make sense why I have felt anticipation for my birthday’s arrival this past year.  Who wouldn’t want to let go of “not enough”? Maybe my soul programmed me to let go when I turned 50.  Who knows?  I just know I could weep with joy with the freedom I feel as a result.

I know I am moving forward into the best time of my life.  I can’t wait to see where my adventures brings me.

Namaste

Soul Colors Portrait: River of Compassion

painting by Della McGee
painting by Della McGee

Deep within you runs a river of compassion.  On each side of your river are experiences yet to unfold.  One sides holds challenges that are yet to be reveal themselves.  The other holds the promise of peace and prosperity.  Notice that even the challenges contain the light.  It is through compassion that you can navigate the waters of challenge with ease.  Never forget that life is meant to be experienced through duality – both light and dark reside on each bank of your river.  Compassion is the key to balance both sides of your experience.

 

A Soul Colors Portrait is a personal maṇḍala for your use as a tool for transformation  When we meditate on our Soul or High Self we become more aligned with our Divine Purpose  Each portrait is painted in acrylic and measures 8″ x 8″.  Della tunes into your soul and paints from that space.  She then receives a written message from Guidance about the meaning of the painting.  Each painting is unique and is used here with the clients permission.   Click here to find out how to get your own Soul Colors Portrait.

Re-Membering The Goddess

Calling back lost pieces of Self

Pieces that childhood ripped away.

Pieces that society tore asunder.

Pieces that anything less than love trampled under despairs feet.

I call Self back into my being.

Contained in the bounty that is Me.

Crying out in ecstasy and joy like a lover.

I have come home.

I am.

Me.

Fear: The Master of Misdirection

Stillness is hard.

Stillness is surrender.

Stillness means I have to trust.  Something.

I am writing this in hopes to get insights into the art of stillness.  I’m not very good at stillness.  I am a mover by nature.  I move my body.  I move my mind.  Movement keeps me safe.  Or so I have always thought.

This morning, as I was writing in my journal, I was given a football metaphor by my IGS (Internal Guidance System).  The metaphor is this:  I am the quarterback.  I am the quarterback who never passes the ball.  I look down field and I see receivers but I don’t trust them to catch the ball.  I am constantly in a state of feeling like I’m about to be sacked (anxiety).  For the life of me I can not release the ball.

I move on to other thoughts in my journal and then out of the blue it hits me.  I can pass the ball to my spirit.  That part of me knows more than I do.  In my mind I pass the ball to my spirit.  O.K.  I’ve let go of the ball.  I can move on with my day.

I get on my yoga mat and there is an unusual amount of stiffness in the backs of my legs.  Intuitively I know this is fear I am holding in my first chakra.  On an emotional level the first chakra represents safety and security.  I don’t feel safe so I hold a lot of tension in the backs of my legs.

I find my quiet place and my IGS tells me to be still today.  More anxiety comes up.  I can’t be still.  I can’t do NOTHING! If I do nothing then nothing will happen. “I CAN”T DO NOTHING!” the voice in my head cries louder.  I begin to panic.  I start to breath deeply as the fear grows stronger.  Fear tells me it is keeping me safe by keeping me busy.  I know this for a lie but it is how I have survived these past 50 years.  I am afraid to let go.  If I let go I die.  Surrender = death.

I know in my heart that I will be safe if I surrender.  Yet the old patterns cling tightly to my body.  There has been a lot of inflammation in my body for the past several days.  My IGS told me it was fear.  The wise part of myself hears the truth in this.   Fear tells me it is something in my diet.  “It must be the sugar you ate in the chocolate covered almonds last night.”  Fear always tries to misdirect me from my truth.  Fear is the master of misdirection.

I come back to center through my breath.  Stillness is in the breath.  I ask myself what do I have to lose if I am still?  I have the courage to find out.  I will let you know . . .
