Follow Your Guidance, Wherever it Leads!

Chapel of the Holy Cross, Sedona, AZ

We all know the importance of following guidance…wherever, whenever, whatever the cost, because you just have a feeling you’re supposed to. I got that opportunity last month when Trinity Facilitator, Debi Weinstein invited me to join her and her husband/Trinity Practitioner, Gene Weinstein, in Arizona after their training course in Lake Havasu.

With less than a week notice, I booked flights into Flagstaff and out of Las Vegas. At 5am the following Monday, after the last day of the school year and a Trinity Practitioner training weekend, I set off on my Southwest adventure. Debi and Gene met me in Flagstaff and we proceeded to Sedona. En route we enjoyed a yummy outdoor lunch in a tree-lined canyon and bought beautiful hand-made jewelry from Native American vendors. Debi was inspired to visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross, built into the spectacular red rocks. The temperature was hovering around 100ºF, down from 118ºF the preceding week, under intensely brilliant sun. Just inside the open-air chapel entrance was a brightly colored painting of a veiled woman, presumably Mother Mary. The three of us sat on a bench in the front of the steamy chapel and did a Trinity session that (literally) blew us away. Both Debi and Gene felt a lovely breeze blow through. Sadly, I missed it, perhaps because my attention was on a spiral vortex connecting up to the ethers and down through the earth.

While waiting for a golf cart to take us back to our car, we were treated to an in-depth explanation of the Native American and energetic significance of the various red rock formations by a knowledgeable guide. He pointed across the canyon to Cathedral Rock, a masculine vortex formerly known as Court House Rock/Butte, for the frontier era court and execution gallows located there. The chapel is located at Eagle Rock, which has feminine energy associated with the water that runs beneath it. On the right side of the chapel is a double peaked formation with Mother and Child energy. It was clear we had done masculine/feminine/child integration work within ourselves and the earth.

The next day we visited the town of Oatman, AZ. This former movie set for “How the West was Won” has a herd of wild donkeys who come down from the surrounding hills and roam the streets waiting to be fed by the tourists. After two pregnant females eagerly consumed my bag of hay pellets, one of them butted me with her nose as if to say, “Aren’t you going to buy us another bag?” After lunch, a young male eagerly consumed my salad leftovers and would have eaten the styrofoam box if I hadn’t retracted it in time. What a treat for both humans and burros!

That night after a delicious Italian dinner, we did a Trinity vortex at the hotel. In addition to the personal benefits we each received, I felt us connecting with the consciousness of Lake Havasu – a rare (feminine) body of water in a very dry desert.

As we drove to the airport in Las Vegas, I thought of my uncle and godfather, Joe Hogan, a former state representative for the “Strip” for many years before his death three years ago. On the rental car shuttle to the airport, I noticed a woman’s shopping bag that said “Joe’s” and felt his presence. I connected with him and was able to assist him in clearing agreements he had with the city.

Sometimes guidance is last minute and seat-of-the-pants. So glad I listened to that little voice and took Debi and Gene up on their invitation!

Got Guidance?

Before I sat down to write this, I asked for guidance and asked to be the pure expression of the divine truth that I am. I asked my ego-self to take a back seat so my divine self can come through and communicate to you through my all BE-ing and from a place of One-ness.

It’s one of the ways I set myself up so that I can come from a place of divine truth instead of ego based beliefs, which are mostly fear based. It’s one of the ways I access my inner intuition and my higher-self or guidance from God/The Universe/The Angels if you prefer, because actually, WE ARE ALL THE SAME.

Sometimes, I’ll just sit down with my journal when I’m struggling with an issue and write out the questions I need answers to, then use the set-up I described above to tap into my infinite divine knowledge that we are all capable accessing and expressing. For this article, I’m going to do something similar, but instead just invite in what needs to come through and write that out for you. I want to play with accessing my guidance and do it in a vulnerable and sharing kind of way!

Angela has been asking me for a blog contribution, and my thinking mind hasn’t come up with any content… so I’m going to ask my infinite-higher mind to just write what needs to be received, so here we go:

 I’m going to just start typing and ask what communication my higher self would like to convey here. It seems the word that keeps popping in is, peace. We have all been wanting some peace in our lives as we have been riding the roller coaster of emotional highs and lows for the past many years now, as this ascension energy has created tremendous shifts for us personally and collectively. Yet, we seem to be continually waiting for this desired feeling of peace. It’s what we want, what we’ve been whining about and what we keep thinking is around the corner. But, is the perception of peace always being out of reach a true reality, or is it a point of view that keeps us distracted about all that we don’t have now? And that experience is what keeps us out of knowing we’re perfect and safe in every moment… which is what also keeps us in a mentality of fear and lack.

So, what if peace is in every moment and it’s only about our choice to connect with it and feel into it? What if peace is never the carrot dangling in the distance, but is within you and only waiting for you to turn on the switch? The same can be said for the energy of love or happiness or joy. All these emotions, feelings and energies are available to us at all times, but we tend to focus our attention elsewhere. We focus our attention to fear-based thoughts of lack, not having enough, not being enough, not feeling good enough etc. This is an old hat as they say. It’s an old paradigm of existence that we have been attached to for eons, but that has all changed and we now have new choices we didn’t know we had before.

We can now choose to embody the energy of peace, the feeling of love in every moment. We can choose to remember that despite external life circumstances, in the present moment, peace can be attained with the focus and choice to connect and BE it. It really is all a matter of choosing to connect and choosing to create this for yourself.  It’s remembering that you as a consciousness create with your thoughts and therefore can shift the vibrational reality of your everyday experiences.  Does this take practice? Yes! Is this a new way of existing and creating? Yes!  Can we do it?  Yes!!  It’s all available to us now and we can choose it!

You may like to introduce a statement or mantra to activate a desired feeling in your body, such as, “I choose to feel peace”, or “I am peace”, or “I am love.” By saying these words out loud with connection to their meaning, yet a detachment in expectation of an outcome, you can build and strengthen your connection to your desired feelings.  You may also like to remember or use your imagination to create an experience that would bring about the feeling you’d like to connect to and anchor that in with the emotions expressed in that scenario. It helps to set up that vibration in your body, so you can best align with in.

There are many ways to connect to our desired feelings, so play around with what feels best for you! And play with asking questions of your guidance. What does your higher-self have to say to you in this moment? What advice would you normally ask outside of yourself, but actually resides within you if you only ask and open up to receive an answer. It’s all inside!!

Are You Still ‘Spiritually Seeking’?

Are you still “spiritually seeking”? How often do we hear this term in spiritual circles?

I hold a monthly “Consciousness Transformation” discussion group meetup local to me, with the intention of bringing together those who are established and have been active on their spiritual journeys… including professional practitioners. Guidance was that it’s time to bring the community together to just “talk shop.”

And that’s what we do; it’s one of my favorite activities every month! We come together to compare notes, see where our different specific vocabularies actually mean the same thing. We talk about the very practical – relationships, etc. – to the much, much bigger picture; for example, last month, we had a pretty extensive discussion about our perceptions of Earth’s position as part of a much bigger, intergalactic project (including discussions around different star beings). It was AWESOME and fun for all of us to simply let loose and share – completely free of judgment, exclusion, or limitation.

This is why I LOVE holding this group; it’s always great to get together with other like-hearted individuals!

Last night, for the first time in quite awhile, we actually went around the circle of those present and did a brief intro of whatever each person wanted… most talked about where they are spiritually, what their journey’s been about.

What I loved was when it was one woman’s turn, she said, “I’m NOT a seeker… I stopped feeling the need to ‘seek’ a long time ago…”

At hearing this, I my heart leaped in excitement… I’d never even thought of things that way, and yet, I LOVED the way she said that!

In spiritual circles, I’ve noticed the term “seeker” comes up again and again. I never consciously realized there was something that felt a little limiting to me when it was used… until this woman said what she said.

When we truly come to the place of IN-dependence and full magical empowerment, and trust that we have access to the answers, that we ourselves are the Divine embodied into an amazing, unique facet of the whole… then there stops being the need to look outside of us. We stop seeking, and allow ourselves to remember.

As the originator of the Trinity Energy Progression practice, I’m passionate on helping others remember that they have ALL OF THE ANSWERS inside of themselves… they simply need to remember how to access that information as the part of the Divine Consciousness that we ALL are!

That is essentially the foundation of this practice: Acknowledging we ARE the Divine, and the Divine is within. Everything that makes up this practice is to support aligning thought, word, and deed on remembering that, with energetic methods exponentially accelerating the opening to that remembrance inside. The ultimate goal is what I call true “IN-dependence”… knowing and allowing yourself to have access to the answers beyond anything else that is presented outside of you.

Not that I don’t appreciate sharing; I absolutely love it! Often, different perspectives bring together a bigger picture that is sometimes missed individually… that’s SO fun to do, when one does it from the place of confidence in what they understand and where they are with themselves, from a place of love vs.from a place of need for validation.

Some might claim, “When you stop seeking, you stop learning, and grow stagnant.” The mind is what tells us it’s important to seek! Yet in my understanding, it’s quite the opposite. The word “seeking” in itself indicates that one believes the answer is outside of them. When we stop being a slave to the mind/ego – which is the identity that believes that the answers are OUTSIDE of us (as its job has been to explore identity, separation, and duality) – and we realize Oneness, our Divine Self, and from a place of Universal Love and Oneness/Wholeness, then we stop existing in from a place of lack altogether, in all ways. When one recognizes and takes full responsibility for their entire reality as they’ve created it, then one can also recognize they can change and create anything; In this place, I also know that all of my experience is one big message of remembrance to myself, and if I fail to consciously recognize the message internally, I allow it to come to me externally, in a way I find fun and easy (my personal mantra).

Once I came to this, I stopped looking for the answers outside of me and acknowledged that I have all of them for myself and my journey… and rather than expending a lot of energy looking to others for any answers (in the form of books, classes, etc.), and having others tell me what to do and how to do it, I instead expanded my focus within with trust in the Divine me.

So many ask me how I’ve become “so powerful” in terms of healing, creating, shifting things, and seeing the much bigger picture (“seeing/visioning”); and here is my answer: It grew exponentially when I pushed myself to become a “non-seeker,” and instead focused my energy on existing in IN-dependence! (Yes, I set this all up for myself – and my Higher Self set it up to force my hand on a number of occasions… but those are stories for another day.)

However, though I don’t seek; I absolutely love sharing with others, in acceptance and interest in the absolute beauty of everyone’s individual journey as yet another magnificent facet of the Divine, as another part of me. I have my reality set so anything that’s highest and best for me and my journey that I’m not already getting within (because there IS a whole infinite multiverse to access LOL) to be presented to me a few different ways, a few different times in an easy and pleasant way for me to take notice. So, in that “setting,” I love everything that comes before me to consider along with my understandings! Then, I ask my Higher Self – as a check – if it’s for me to pursue in some way to help me remember. If I get yes, I do… and sometimes, it’s simply creating conscious clarity of whatever’s important in that moment. If not, I typically get an answer as to what IS important about the situation at hand immediately. Then, with gratitude and joy for this great big symphonic puzzle we’ve created in separation to remember our Wholeness, I play on!

And, being in this place, I find it so much more fun, to compare and share similar experiences with others from a place of “equal Divinity”!

My takeaway for you here is for you to realize that you ARE capable; the answers are all within you! My recommendation on the journey of “seeking” is that the focus be on finding the practice(s) that encourage one to remember that they’re worthy to, help one remember how to, and help one open their infinite access to this remembrance… free of limitation, ritual, and transcendent of ego, while in a place of complete empowerment and encouraging absolute IN-dependence by the acknowledgment, acceptance, and embodiment that the Divine is within.

Which, of course, brings me to Trinity Energy Progression…  😉

Namaste,

Tending My Own Garden

I love gardens; always have.  To me, there’s something so fundamental to my own core being … so breath-inducing …. so beautiful …. so alive.  I always feel closer to myself, closer to inspiration, closer to All, connected to All.

To me, it doesn’t matter if it’s a structured English-style garden …. Hakone Gardens which is near where I grew up and is one of the oldest Japanese-style residential garden in the Western Hemisphere …. The Tuileries and Carrousel Gardens which is part of the Louvre in Paris …. Filoli Gardens, also near where I grew up …. my dad’s extensive vegetable, fruit, and flower garden …. fields of fresh growing produce which can be found across this amazing United States …. a personal garden in a backyard …. or even a bunch of pots with plants grouped together.

I could spend hours just enjoying the presence of the living vegetation as well as the other living beings such as dragonflies, butterflies, bees, etc. Even as I type this, thinking of gardens I’ve enjoyed, my psyche begins to get all energized and I feel uplifted.

I begin to take deeper, more fulfilling breaths.

Still, something was missing for me.
My parents always had amazing green thumbs; I did not inherit this; or hadn’t until ……

….. bing … a lightbulb went off.  I came to realize I had yet to experience creating and maintaining my own garden …. versus just enjoying others’ creations.

From this awareness, I realized there was a metaphor for me … meaning, “my garden” represented the relationship to myself. Am I, or to what degree am I, actively engaged in my own life?

Last fall, with some guidance from a neighbor who is my “garden muse,” I started planting in various places in my small front and back yards as well as in lots of pots.  I’ve found one of my most inspiring and insightful choices is to purchase plants from the clearance area at my local Lowe’s stores. It used to be that if the plant didn’t survive, I wouldn’t feel as bad that I wasted money.

This habit of purchasing the clearance plants now has a completely different lesson and insight for me.  I have found such reward and personal validation when a plant that was barely living is now thriving.

The more I develop the relationship with my plants, the more I develop the relationship with myself.  It starts in a simple, literal sense …  My connection/meditation time for the day includes going out daily to check on my plants, water them, move around the ones in pots which don’t seem to be doing so well in their current location. Often, I’m joined in my outside time by a bee who frequents the front yard, a dragonfly who is partial to the plants in the side yard, and most recently in the backyard, a new swallowtail butterfly which was fluttering all over one day showing me what it could do with its lovely wings.

As I connect with my plants and their insect friends, it reminds me to connect to myself …. “Am I watering myself (enough) daily?”  “What am I feeding myself?” “How am I doing in my current location?”  “Do I need more sunshine, more shade?” “Who am I connecting with, or not connecting with?” “Am I taking time for myself to just breathe?”  “Am I enjoying moments of just being?”

The other thing about having “my own garden” to enjoy versus watching or enjoying others’ gardens, is that my focus in life is now on ME.  I no longer look for someone to take care of my garden, nor am I off taking care of someone else’s garden.  I’ve found that …..

I am joyfully and gratefully responsible for creating and maintaining my own thriving garden.

P.S.. Both photos are from my garden.  In the top photo, the pink flower in the large pot in back is a “Guara.”  This winter all that showed of the plant was a bit of the woody stem; it wasn’t looking good. Some people may have even thrown it out.

 I heard to give it time, water, and love …. and voila, look how gorgeous it is!  This too has been my experience with myself.  When I accept myself as I am, and provide time, water, and love … I too have blossomed.  What a beautiful blossom I am.

Seeing the Miracles in Disappointment

                          Rue in bloom.

Sometimes in life –  heck, a lot of times in life! – we get frustrated with the way things are going. We have it in our minds that life should be one way, and instead, life looks anything but that vision at our present moment in time. “What have I done wrong?” we wail at the Universe. “I’m a good person, why aren’t things working out like I expect them to?” If you’re like me, most of the times there is no answer. I’ll try to console myself with the sayings “Everything happens for reason,” and “Things happen in Divine timing,” but in truth I’m just frustrated and feeling forsaken and unloved.

I usually wind up turning the situation around, swallowing my disappointments and trying to ignore the hollowness and ache of unworthiness deep inside me until I can be grateful for what I do have. Typically, this involves a healthy dose of nature. Nothing turns my mood around faster than observing all of the miracles around me every day in the form of the plants, insects, and creatures roaming this Earth!

Those who know me know that I raise butterflies. It started out as a love for tabouli and a desire to make my own. I dutifully set out a few parsley plants and waited for them to grow. They did indeed grow. Unfortunately, I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed parsley! One day, I came out to find my parsley plants covered in caterpillars.  At first, I wasn’t too happy with this outcome. But, after doing some research, I determined that the caterpillars were those of the Black Swallowtail butterfly and I felt honored to provide them with a source of food. From that point on, I kept parsley plants for the butterflies so that they could leave their eggs and start the cycle anew each year.

Each summer I would eagerly await the arrival of my butterflies and their eggs.  I planted more plants they enjoyed such as rue, dill, and fennel in addition to the parsley, and filled my garden with rich nectar sources. When the baby caterpillars emerged, I would bring them inside and feed and care for them until they made their chrysalises. Those that emerged from the chrysalis during the season were released back into the world, and those that decided they wanted to wait until next year to see the world overwintered inside my house so as to protect them from predators and the cold weather.

This had been an annual cycle for me for several years until 2016.  I waited and waited all summer long in 2016, but no caterpillars appeared. To say I was crushed is putting it mildly.  I was heartbroken.  The fact that several other people I knew found caterpillars when they hadn’t ever had any before seemed like salt in the wound. As pleased as I was for them, I felt my own lack of caterpillars keenly. One person asked me to “adopt” some almost full grown caterpillars late in the season that then overwintered with me. It helped to ease the ache, nevertheless I was still very sad over not having any of my own to raise and care for.

Fast forward to now, Spring 2017.  In an unusual twist, I found five baby caterpillars on my rue recently. This is highly unusual since in years past I haven’t had caterpillars until the late summer. My heart was filled with joy! I hadn’t been forsaken after all!  It seemed the Universe did still want me to take care of and protect these tiny members of the natural world. Once I’d come down from my euphoric state, it occurred to me that there must have been a reason that I hadn’t had any caterpillars to raise in 2016. Almost as soon as I had formed that thought, the answer came to me. In 2016 I’d been helping a friend through a really tough time, one that required lots of nurturing and support in addition to all of my normal hectic daily routines. With that realization, my whole perspective changed. I’m still sad that I didn’t have my own caterpillars to raise that year, but I’m grateful that I was given the time to focus on nurturing someone else who greatly needed it. Plus, I was still provided with some of my little ones to adopt at a stage in their lives when they wouldn’t require much from me. Truly, it was the best way the whole situation could have unfolded, even if I didn’t realize it at the time.

As a result of this little life lesson, the next time something doesn’t turn out the way I had hoped, I plan to stop and take a moment to thank the Universe for whatever else is in store for me in the future that might not have happened if I had gotten whatever it was that I had been hoping for.  Because I’m sure that whatever it is will be just what is needed.
