Relationships are the Elixir of Life!

February 19th, 2017

Relationships teach us so much about ourselves daily that we are exhausted at times. Bringing ourselves back to THE PRESENT is our ticket to peace. This moon month it is advisable to pay attention to the times when you try to fix what is not working. Improving, or saving yourself or others, only takes you away from the real spiritual work of practicing acceptance moment to moment. Hold a beautiful energy field with awareness of unconditional love. Confess to yourself when you are holding expectations of how the relationship should work and know that being present to what is working is the magic in the moment to utilize. Be brave and honest about who you really are and you will understand so much more about how relationships are actually mixtures and elixirs to experience fun, love, joy, peace, bliss … you name it!

Understanding and Retrieving Messages From The Spirit World

February 19th, 2017

Here are some questions I have been asked through the years:

Do you need to put yourself in a certain mindset in order to channel?

In the beginning I needed to put myself in a certain mindset by setting a sacred circle and clearing my thoughts, but then later it became more of a natural thing.

How do you know when you’re channeling?

For me it’s like a wave of energy that moves through my brain, or I can feel a download of information in my head that I know is separate from me in someways, at least separate from my personality.

Is it an epiphany or do you actually ask a question and the answer comes to you?

Both.

Do you hear the messages as if someone is talking to you?

It usually starts with a feeling first, then instant knowing and partially-formed pictures. Sometimes the picture is very clear and can even unfold like a movie. I interpret the symbolism and it takes what seems to me like a nanosecond to do it. I can also see and hear words and sentences. They come to me one at time, then as I continue, I go into a trance and the words just flow from me. I begin to speak without deciphering the words. The feeling, seeing, and knowing come in random order and flow together in succinct, clear messages.

How did this ability develop?

I believe this practice has come through my own meditations and facilitating meditation with others for over 15 years, but I did have an inclination since I was very young to communicate with guardians. After all, they were my best friends.

Once you ask a question of the Universe, do you always get an answer?

Yes! The answers are always there.

Saint Mother Teresa Enveloped and Demonstrated the Sacred Energy of Mother Mary

February 19th, 2017

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”

Saint Mother Teresa
1910-1997

The spiritual vibration of Mother Teresa has made an impact on me even when I was very young. I didn’t pay much attention to the news or current events, but I remembered her and liked her. The thought of her made me happy. In elementary school, I thought how good to know that there are people in the world that care with deep conviction.

Now through my work and studies developing the Divine Feminine in myself and others and as a Celtic High Priestess of Daughters of the Moon and Sacred Moon Discoveries, I know her in other guise as the Divine Mother, Goddess, or Mother Earth.

Father Joseph Langford, cofounder with Mother Teresa of her community of priests, the Missionaries of Charity Fathers, and author of “Mother Teresa: In the Shadow of Our Lady,” writes Mother Teresa’s secrets from her deep and revealing letters only he was allowed to read. It was important for him to reveal the letters to support her Cannonization by the Catholic Church. She will be identified as a Saint this year in 2016, possibly in September.

Mother Mary strengthened her in carrying her own pain, and in tending to the pain of the poor. “Our Lady (Mother Mary) would help her to not only believe in the night, but to love in the night – to transform the mystery of the cross, both within her and around her, into seeds of resurrection.”

“Mother Teresa discovered that Our Lady’s presence alongside her in the slums purified things, no matter how sullied, and beautified things, no matter how uncomely. She opened the blackest of horizons to the light of God’s grace.”

Mother Teresa emptied herself in order to allow Light to move through her. In doing so, she became a Channel of Light.

I stumbled into the movie, ” The Letters, ” on Netflix. She wanted “to serve Him amongst the poorest of the poor” in India. I was so completely touched by her devotional love and acceptance. She spent over 50 years teaching, nursing, befriending and allowing safe passage for the dying. I was moved by how many people she served.

I related particularly because I just recently lost my mother in 2015 to a quick and scary cancer. I had to adjust my understanding of life and the importance of honoring another’s soul path passing time without attachment. It was a blessing to share love and peace in the midst of darkness. It was and still is a humbling experience.

In her letters to Father Langford it was obvious that Mother Teresa endured tremendous darkness. She felt abandoned by God. It was as if she had to feel the nothingness to allow God’s Greatness to work through her.

Here is a link below to the song, “Run” by Leona Lewis, played at the end of the movie. It is beautiful, but intense and extracts many interpretations. Here is mine. As we let go of those we love, or in the passings (deaths, changes) in our lives, there is Hope, Beauty and Divine Reflection (Light reflecting from our Union with others and Source).

ATTENTION LIGHTWORKERS Who Forget to Nurture Themselves!

February 19th, 2017

Including the TEACHERS, HEALERS, HELPERS, and CARETAKERS

So many of us are blessed with natural and soulful care and concern for others. We spend our days shaping our lives around others. We find love and beauty in selflessness, but without including ourselves in this blessed nurturing, a consistent, full heart remains illusive. Such fullness is felt through service, the love of others, the blessings of others, the joys and sorrows, and the soul plans followed and those not followed. We are helping, loving, accepting and showing our deepest heartfelt understanding by holding space for other’s soul fulfillment. “What a beautiful thing!” You might say. True, it is. Service to others is the ultimate gift to Self. What happens though is an odd feeling of emptiness when we forget ourselves. When the person receiving the caretaking withdraws and detaches to experience their own sense of self, we find ourselves stunned with a gaping hole in our hearts remembering the need to find joy in ourselves, and our own energy. In the moment of disconnection from those we care for, creatures of habit that we are, we are not equipped with the focus needed for ourselves and we lack the necessary routine and rituals that accompany a healthy lifestyle. And you know, some of these people never withdraw. They are the needy type. This may be comforting at first, then exhausting because each one of us have a deep, inner calling to find our true soul center. Our soul center is the place where our spiritual heart feels contentment, peace, love, joy and passion. As we follow our soul plan, we feel the fulfillment in everything we do, even when it gets tough as we are still learning and growing here on Earth. It is necessary to love and care with boundaries that allow both the caretaker and the receiver to each have his or her own space for soul growth.

Here is a simple, but Golden Tip #1:

Imagine a Golden Chalice in the center of your heart. Know this Chalice must remain full at all times and with all kinds of love. Ask yourself if you are “topped off,” fill your Chalice up! Cute huh? Sounds like a fluid check at the service station! If you are not topped off, fill it! You can fill it one day at a time, one hour at a time, weekly, etc…. This depends on your need.

Knock Three Times, Tip #2:

Boundaries are good. Here is a way to hold loving boundaries where you too are included in the love. Ask yourself three times. Do I need to tend to this and be present here? If you get a yes after “knocking three times,” it’s a solid yes. For those of you who may be my age, remember Tony Orlando? “Knock three times on the ceiling…?” If you get a single no (or more) out of three, it’s a no. Let go.

A Wonderful Journaling Tip #3:

Get a journal that is solely for writing one message a day about what you did that day to recognize how wonderful you are. Use your senses. Feel your favorite things spiritually (knowing and seeing included), emotionally (Feel, feel, feel and it is all ok! Give that to yourself.), mentally (You are smart and interesting.), physically (Eat, jump, dance, stretch, take risks by touching, feeling, and experiencing.), egoically (You have talent. Be confident.), and soulfully (How do you serve others and yourself with what you enjoy?). Take notice of what you love in nature, music, people, movies, exercise, words….

Choosing and Chancing Sown the Path of Devotional Love

February 19th, 2017

A fabulous choice: love of self and love of others… in balance! Most of us are out of whack when it comes to keeping the balance between love of self and love of others, and service to self and service to others. How do we know whether to compromise or to follow our deepest desires with full force when our desires do not seem to align with those of the people in our lives whom we care so much about?

Here is what the Guardians have said to me on this matter:

“We suggest keeping it simple. We remind you to activate a preference for contentment and peace in your heart soothing your mind and nervous system. Holding balance first requires a commitment. Communicate with your loved ones your desire to share a devotional love. Define this together. Express intentions to bless each other’s journey. Discuss together what is clear in your mind and heart. Compromises will feel healthy, fulfilling and appropriate in the union. Be unafraid to reveal your true essence and love for one another. True devotional love will not harm, but heal, uplift and reflect your true Divinity. Blessed Be”

Emotional Suffering – A Crying Shame

February 19th, 2017

Suffering is an option. Pain may be present at times, but it can be transmuted into Light by asking your Divine Self, your Higher Divine Guardians, the Ascended Masters to heal it and release it. Breathe into the Light to feel balance, peace, joy, love, gentleness, connection, tranquility, radiance, wisdom….Recognizing the Light is gathering your awareness into the present moment where all healing magic resides.

Empathy and compassion are generated toward the other or toward yourself by recognizing the suffering or pain. Sometimes it seems needless and other times necessary, but all is for learning and transformation. Pain is unavoidable in life. To understand pain is to appreciate pleasure. Capture one to capture the other.

Be aware of pain before it becomes suffering. Develop the skills to grab a hold of it before it grabs a hold of you.

I have found Reiki Energy healing work assists the receiver of a healing session and the practitioner to sensitize to be aware of the first trappings of pain as it is experienced. Level One Reiki begins this practice of becoming more sensitive and aware of the subtle happenings that manifest in the body whether it is emotional, mental, or physical while learning tools to bring Light frequencies in as protection from suffering. Level Two greatly increases this ability. Level Three/Four Master Teacher delves into the Mastery of release.

Respond With Love

February 19th, 2017

I have a beautiful friend who has inspired me to write this article. I have known her for 23 years. Throughout the time that we have been friends, I have learned many simple, yet powerful lessons through her reflection. One of which I’m going to share with you.

Recently we planned to meet for lunch as usual and talk about what’s been going on. I typically speak of my latest challenges, then search my mind and allow spirit to speak through me for enlightened answers while I secretly hope that it will stick. With her I become drawn to the present through her demeanor and her actions. It becomes easy to enjoy food and the atmosphere and just Be-ing there. I settle in, forget searching my mind and spirit, and begin to relax into the moment. Then, it just becomes, “Hey, here’s the reflection of my kind and loving friend who reminds me how kind and loving I am too.” It is always a pleasure to see her.

Driving up to meet her, I spotted the restaurant she was waiting at and parked behind her car. I noticed a new bumper sticker on her car that read, “Respond with Love”. I immediately thought, “Yes, a great one, as great as the one she had many years ago, “Be Kind.” I remember back then thinking how hard that was. It took me years wondering if I really was kind at all. Now she’s got me again, wondering how long my Guru friend’s new bumper statement would twist my mind.

We had a nice lunch then went to the nearest grocery store to pick up a few things. A man nearby jumped into our conversation and started to randomly go from one subject to another. I did my best to follow, but I quickly thought the more attention I give this man the more he kept talking! I felt confused, so I slowly looked away and browsed the shelves as I inched away. My mind wandered to a question about tomato sauce, then my focus was drawn back to the man. My friend was faced toward him listening intently with a sweet half smile on her face and then it happened. He stopped talking. He was complete. My friend gave him just what he needed. She listened. He got the connection and attention he needed and he felt satisfied and complete. I believe she heard what he was saying, made connections herself, stayed present until the man was complete. Her heart remained open and her eyes were on his eyes. My heart was warmed and full by this lovely demonstration of how to Respond with Love!

By maintaining awareness of ourselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, egoically and soulfully, we can glean so many jewels from each person, situation, circumstance and event. And Responding with Love will add soulful warmth to it all.

Follow Your Joy to Your Spiritual Heart

February 19th, 2017

Your Spirit Heart resides deeply within your core essence. It knows the abundance of the Universe. You can find this essence as you remember the feelings of radiant connection you have experienced in your precious, innocent, childhood memories. Do you remember those expanded glowing moments when you felt one with the present moment? Take time to remember. Sit quietly and ask your Higher Self, “When was I aware of my Spiritual Heart and what did it feel like?” Bask in the memories. Fill yourself up. Ask to awaken the magnificence of Love with and around your heart center and share it so brightly out to others bypassing all resistance from your egoic personality. Awaken your vulnerable, Spiritual Heart. FEEL the joy, the warmth, the tenderness and excitement all in one. You are brilliance in physical form!

New Year 2016 – The Hermit

February 19th, 2017

2016 vibrates with a “9” energy, the power of completion and the path of the Hermit. Does that mean you have to wear a hooded cloak and hide from everyone all year? Of course not! The Hermit symbolizes shutting off outer distractions to go within to find wholeness by uniting the material world with the spiritual. You may find more time to be introspective during your normal daily routines. Heal, focus, and find and accept your Highest Truth. Break down the old patterns to allow the the light of the new and you will be quite pleased with your process by the end of the year. 2008 began this journey and 2016 will finish it. Shine your light!

Live Your Life With Ease And Grace

February 19th, 2017

My Favorite Expression!

I asked my Higher Self to get in contact with the Wise Ones to help me elaborate:

“As you follow your soul’s guidance, if you allow this blessed reality to be present in your consciousness, you will dream and create in a magnitude that is unmistakably yours and unmistakably in sinc with cosmic consciousness. You see, YOU ARE cosmic consciousness and your unique self is an extension of the grand plan for all of humanity. This may seem too large for your comprehension, but it is not. For each small contribution from each individual contributes to the whole of all existence and profoundly affects the All. Paradoxically, this kind of awareness draws close ease and comfort. You will feel home in your collaboration and communion. The contentment that fills your heart fosters grace. A fluidity of motion from your awakening allows you to come in contact with the seen and unseen. Blessed Be, Seekers, for you are of the Kingdom of God.”
