The Challenge and Benefits of Breaking Through Fear

A friend recently challenged me to do 30 days of Facebook Live videos to embrace my intense fear of talking live on camera. I have often watched so many others make it look so very easy with their confidence and perfect flow and I  thought, I wish I could actually do that! However, once I started to think about it, I was overcome with so much fear and doubt that I would quickly shut it down and tell myself, no way you’ll ever do that! That damn snarky voice in my head; sometimes, I just want to give it a good ole punch and knock it out! So with this challenge, I quickly accepted it before I could freak and react to what I had just agreed to do. My friend who challenged me offered to do a test run of us together on Facebook Live to show me the way. I was extremely nervous and felt completely shut down – well I may have shown up for about 20 seconds, but hey – it’s a start!

I had decided if I was going to do this live challenge that I wanted to do my best to give a positive message….so it began. It’s interesting because as an empath I felt like I could feel everyone’s judgments and I could hear some of the chatter going on around me. Although most people never actually had the courage to confront me in person, that’s okay because what I learned from it was that those judgments were about them and not me. I had my own lessons to learn from this amazing experience which I’ll come back to in a moment.

Some of you know that I love taking photos and will often jump in smiling at the sight of any camera but that’s not the case when it comes to live video. Somewhere my mind and I had created Facebook Live to be this huge mountain of fear so I would now have a large mountain to climb! While I never fully lost my fear from doing live videos for 30 days, they got a little easier. The mountain wasn’t quite as big as I had created in my mind.

Striving to be authentic with my daily message, I asked for divine guidance to lead me and come through me while letting go of any fear or attachment. However, sometimes I was clueless about my daily ramble and I could feel fear rising, so I simply sent it love. It was all crazy and perfect as I discovered many new tribe members with this experience and may have lost a few folks who just didn’t quite understand. Also my belief and trust in myself grew, because I said, “Yes I Can” do this and came from a place of love, allowing love to win over fear.

I’ve always felt that a simple smile to a stranger could potentially change that person whether for a moment, a day or a lifetime. Therefore, I thought if I delivered a positive message with a smile thrown in, heck maybe I’ll reach more than one soul who needs a little lift! I discovered that it actually helped many and brightened their days. So many lovely people reached out to me with support, encouragement, gratitude and requests to keep going because they needed me. Wow!  What an amazing feeling of love and how humbling to truly know that I had made an impact by just being me and doing this silly little challenge!

I am grateful for all the love and support from family and friends and to the Universe for always having my back. I offer even more gratitude to all the judgment and chatter that came from those who didn’t quite understand as they taught me the most about myself! All in all, this 30 day challenge taught me more than I can ever write in this blog. Here are a few of my favorite lessons: I completed all 30 days! I showed up and did my best. I can truly laugh at myself. I survived. I thrived. I shined. I now choose to freely Embrace Me! No turning back now, as I am forever changed due to this experience! So, I now wonder, what’s next? Shout out of many thanks to my friend Brittany for challenging me!  Love to you all!

Experience Magical Healing Outside of Linear Time

Last month, eight of us experienced magnificent, expanding, life changing, healing, purifying, magical moments in Mt. Shasta, CA.

During our retreats, the focus is on going within and dissolving what holds us back from realizing our Divine potential. Part of the experience includes extensive self-directed energy healing work, meditation, and reflection… and pushing ourselves beyond our previous limits. We did work together and individually; we meditated alone and we shared meditations too. One of the ongoing exercises is a vortex where we all focus on one in the group at a time.

We experienced deep and intense shares from our vortex exercises; full of epiphanies and breakthroughs… many of you felt and/or are still feeling it too, because – outside of space and time – many of you who practice Oneness consciousness, even though you might not have been physically present, also felt and have experienced the shifts.

I was blessed to meet and share with some of the most beautiful beings in my soul tribe I have met thus far in this life. One of them was, a magical, full of joy, very special being named Sandi.

I had heard of her in the past. I also knew she’d had a very serious health situation last year where she found herself choosing to stay or go. The details were not very clear to me at the onset of the retreat. However, throughout the experience, we effortlessly and quietly connected; I later learned about our shared love for music, sound, yoga, and magical fun experiences!

In one of our shares, Sandi was in the middle of the vortex; what I saw and experienced during the exercise was very interesting and different…and I was guided not to share at that moment. I judged and judged myself for not sharing, thinking it was negative and low vibration compared to the beautiful understandings the others shared, yet the Higher plan was different. I chose then to embrace myself and be courageous to share privately with her.

In the beginning of the vortex, I’d expected that connecting with this magical visionary would provide an equally magical experience with her. Instead… I found myself in a hospital room… Seriously? I remember feeling confused and a bit annoyed, yet I allowed and flowed with it. It only took a few moments to realize what I was seeing, since I remembered she had been in the hospital the year before. I immediately looked at the bed and saw her… and things made more sense. I was the observer and also participating.

She looked fragile and a bit lifeless, yet inside she was vibrant but annoyed and anxious because she wasn’t able to communicate to tell the doctors what to do. It was an empty and dull place; she wanted out of there. All of a sudden I saw all of us in the vortex, standing around the bed where Sandi was laying. Her soul was happy to see us as we started asking her (telepathically) what assistance she needed… she was ready to let us know what to do! She knew what needed to be done, it seemed no one around her in the 3D quite knew what to do even though they were very concerned about her health. We were moving around doctors and other people around her, totally invisible to them.

I remember her telling us where and how to make changes energetically, to affect the physical. It was quick! As she shifted her energy and we shared with her, she began moving into this cat kneading pose that earlier during our Mt. Shasta retreat that had initially been a joke… and there was significant change.

Choosing to share my vortex experience with Sandi that night (then further discussion later, after the trip) not only validated things that I saw, but it also brought up some things for her to remember that has also validated some of her experiences, too. We are still in awe from all of this… the logical mind thinks, “How crazy!”

A funny synchronicity was this “cat kneading pose” joke… (Funny enough, as I’m writing this, my cat just joined me! She literally put her tail on my face, turned around and sat next to me!).

Sandi and I had a moment during the trip when we were talking and sharing about our love for yoga; in the process, we came up with with the pose: laying with your back on the floor and the legs over the head, like a Karna Pindasana (yoga posture)/Alanda Balasana (happy baby pose). Then, moving one’s hands like a cat kneading in the air. We laughed so much! So, when I shared my experience seeing her doing that, it hit me: Seeing her doing that pose was a transformative message of unity and recognition, in showing me that what we were doing was helping her to heal/change her reality, even though I didn’t know her yet in linear time!

Later, she shared with me that in the beginning of her recovery (because she couldn’t talk or move much), one of the initial exercises she did when she first woke up from her extended hospital stay was moving her fingers like a cat kneading. So if we removed ourselves from the limitations of linear time… we could recognize that it’s quite possible that we “jokingly” created such a “pose” today, in a way that she could use it in the “past” to help to heal and recover Or, did she forget she used it, so we could have a fun opportunity to remember together, and circle back around?

Pretty wild, right?

After this experience, I view every moment differently. I never thought that part of dissolving what holds me back during our Mt. Shasta retreat would include pushing myself out of my comfort zone to fully own and express myself and my higher consciousness experiences; accepting myself as I am, where I am, knowing that everything has a purpose!

What we’re going through is beyond magical! The more we push and allow ourselves to experience well beyond our logical mind, the more we can realize and trust that all is perfectly orchestrated; the more we do that, the more we experience moments in multidimensionality, and can do so outside of space and time.

The Rowboat, the Motorboat, and the Helicopter… or, the Sailboat of Life

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. ~Marcel Provost

Have you ever considered if the universe is delivering exactly what you’re asking for but you’re not recognizing it? What if it is delivering exactly what you asked for, right now?

This isn’t about the “law of attraction”.

This is about …. What if the universe is delivering everything you want, or the way to get there, and you don’t accept it because it doesn’t look the way you expected?

I’ve been having a number of discussions lately about just this concept referencing the modern parable about the man who dies, ends up at the pearly gates, and asks St. Peter why he wasn’t saved. As it goes:

There is widespread flooding going on. A man dies after going all the way up to his roof during the rains, and he drowns. He ends up at the pearly gates and asks St. Peter, “Why, why wasn’t I saved? I asked over and over for help, and none came.”

 St. Peter responds with, “You were sent help, you didn’t accept any of it.  When the rains first started, we sent you a rowboat; but you turned it away. As the waters continued to rise, we sent you a motorboat, and you also turned it away. Finally, when you were on the roof, and there was one last chance to save you, you turned away the helicopter we sent. Each time you said that God would save you.  My child, it was God who sent you the rowboat, the motorboat, and then the helicopter.”

There have been numerous times in my life when I’ve been waiting and looking for the rowboat, the motorboat, and even the helicopter …. and I missed the lovely sail boat sent my way.

I’ve been a student of life as long as I can remember.  I’ve heard the concepts of “plan plans, not outcomes” and “pry your fingers off the steering wheel of life.” I haven’t really gotten it until just recently.

I found myself once again asking for direction to my path in life as well as support to a thriving life, including both health and financial. Within 24 to 36 hours I got my answer, yet it didn’t look like I expected. I wanted a few signs; I got them.  I mean … I REALLY GOT SIGNS WHICH WERE VERY CLEAR as they were signs that are meaningful and distinct to me.  ROTFL, I still was a bit questioning.

FINALLY …. click went the light and I now see the sailboat!

What I most love about all of this is that I have come to a place in life where I thought I was trusting as life unfolds, except it seems when it doesn’t look like I expected.  If I’m kicking and screaming and upset, that is not living in the present, seeing and accepting the gifts which are being offered to me all along my path.  This is now the graduate level course of life ….

 Am willing to trust, am willing to live in faith …. even when things come to me in different ways than I thought? Can I have inner peace when I’m being challenged outside of my comfort zone? Can I trust when life is feeling unfamiliar? Will I allow myself the pleasures of trust, ease, and inner peace?

So, am I ready to see my sailboat? I’ve found I’m ready when I’m ready, no sooner.

Yep, not only am I ready for the sailboat, I am ready to let my dreams set sail. I am now on the sailboat life sent me …. feeling the wind and the mist from the waves as they embrace my body.

We must let go of the life we have planned,
so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
~ Joseph Campbell

Anyone else? Who’s ready and willing to come sailing with me?

Spiritual Course Correction: Crash and Burn or Flow With It

I know an increasing number of individuals who are going through a major “spiritual course correction” kind of situation. Literally… everything is shutting down. The feeling of brick walls everywhere… physically, emotionally, spiritually, environmentally, you name it. 
 
When I say course correction, I mean it’s the higher consciousness taking us beyond where we are and where we might’ve been very comfortable for an extended period of time. What happens is that everything comes to feel off, clunky, and suffocating, like it’s “gone wrong”… and often leaves the individual to question everything. “I thought I was on the right path… I thought I was following my passion… I thought being in a place of comfort meant ‘I’d made it’…” “I thought this was ‘good enough”…” And then CRASH. CRASH. CRASH. CRASH. Everything has been crashing down!
 
Why, is typically the first question asked.
 
My understanding is that in cases like this, it’s most often because the EGO originally decided what the “passion” was, and this decision was typically based on external validation: how much others love the individual for doing it, having others look to the individual as savior, as ” a good person,” as “an angel”… there are many, many indications.
 
Often, it came to be with a lot of what was perceived as “hard work.” Again, another belief of the ego… that rewards (including in relationships and prosperity) only come with “hard work” or self-sacrifice to the point of martyrdom – which we culturally idealize – vs. authenticity, self-nourishment, and unconditional self-love.
 
These are all loud messages, but the ego is quick to get comfortable here, rationalizing why one is “of service” in whatever way. One of the biggest messages to look at within ourselves is when we say, “My passion is to be of service to ______”…
 
The question beyond that is, “Why? Why is it your passion?” Typically it’s because it makes us feel good about ourselves… external validation (and thus ego).
 
And that is actually NOT our Divine purpose!
 
With the huge shifts and changes we’ve been continuously undergoing this year, we cling steadfastly to those things that culture, others, and ourselves believe make us more valuable as an individual… instead of recognizing that we’re crucially valuable as the Divine embodied just being in existence.
 
So, then, what is “living one’s purpose/passion”?
 
It’s doing what allows us to be FREE, to be able to fully embody our Divine Self in bliss, completely present in every moment. It’s effortless; it can be fun and even orgasmic! It’s something one can do 24/7 and never tire of doing… even if they’re tired.
 
Will others judge this? Absolutely! But, as I always say, it’s none of our business what others think of us, because what they think of us is purely where THEY are on their journeys (and it’s often because they deep down wish they can allow that of themselves… which they can!).
 
It’s being transcendant to fear of judgment… and transcendant to fear altogether.
 
It’s being so happy in living our embodiment in every moment that someone judging us is completely off of our radar; that we enjoy every moment so much that we completely trust the Multiverse to support us… so we recognize there is nothing to fear.
In turn, we hold a higher vibration of Divine unconditional love… help raise the vibration of the planet… help raise the vibration of those around us, just by being around us (there’s nothing required that we DO, just BE in this place). And our troubles simply melt away.
 
How challenging or easy this is is up to the individual, the individual’s beliefs, the individual’s ego and its “buts” (“… but I can’t do that because…”). Instead of listening to the mind’s million reasons why NOT to do something, ask, “What if I could do this? What if I could do anything? Then what would I do?”
 
It’s important to hear ourselves defending, rationalizing, saying, “I KNOW I’m supposed to do this… but I was waiting until _____________ (someone grows up, someone dies, some situation happens)… however, everything’s collapsing now…
 
Then the important message is, “Then it’s time to change this – start allowing the ‘course correction’ – NOW.”
 
Sometimes this means giving up everything we’ve had to this point… or a good majority of it.
 
Personally, I’ve had multiple messages about this in my life… well before I was consciously aware of what they were:
|
  • In 1988, I listened to the voice that told me to up and LEAVE my home town area on Long Island, NY – where I’d grown up – to move 3.5 hours away, where I literally knew 2 people (and they were my roommates). Yet, that began a 9-year part of my journey that was a pivotal, productive, nourishing part of my life.
    |
  • In 1996, my husband was out to sea in the USN out of Virginia, while I had remained in upstate New York. As I had a great job with solid pay and benefits – and I was in the middle of pregnancy with our first child – “the plan” was that he would get out of the military in August, join me again in upstate New York, and we would start our non-military life together up there. However, that spring, an urging began for me to up and leave, and move south… because if I stayed, I had visions of getting transferred to someplace I didn’t want to be. I did so, willing to give up my job, my circle of friends, and take a flying leap off a cliff without knowing what was beyond that. Yet, it all panned out, perfectly…and, by the way, the visions turned out to be true: Had I stayed at the job, I would’ve been transferred or let go the following year!
    |
  • In 2006, I listened to guidance over the mind and completely changed direction in my career… when I’d had 17 years of experience in corporate that had brought me to the amazing title and paycheck I’d THOUGHT I’d wanted. I wasn’t fired, laid off, or limited in my job… but the voice was loud to GET OUT. Doing this cut my household income by 2/3 at the time, with two children in middle and elementary school. But I left, anyway… because it was time for me to get on with what’s next. This was one of the biggest leaps of faith I’d ever made!
    |
  • In 2010, I began to have clear and strong guidance that doing this magic is what I came here to live, to do. At the time, I had a pretty successful, growing marketing/communications consulting business with small and medium businesses (I even had part-time help). Because I had lost a significant amount of money in my previous business right out of corporate – which had been a commercial organic herb nursery – My MIND told me, “No, this is what I enjoy, this is what I came here to do, this is how I can (and was) making money.” But really… it was what I was comfortable doing… and it felt good to have money consistently coming in after the challenges with the nursery. The part I really loved – tapping into the business owner’s heart and passion with them to allow that flourishing to happen – was a precursor to doing what I do today. Yet, the mind said, “I can’t make a living doing this…” “I don’t know how to do this…” and other things like “Others will think of me as a freak/quack/_________”This guidance… I fought.The longer I fought it and decided to proceed with my consulting business, the harder it became to finish projects, to get started on them. I had one bizarre occurrence after another that would disintegrate any project timelines. The Multiverse/Higher Self was literally putting up one brick wall after another. So, there were no projects getting done – and thus, I wasn’t getting paid. And no new ones starting. Stalemate. So, I finally yelled, “UNCLE!” and wrote a public letter to my clients on Facebook (talk about leaping out of my comfort zone at the time) to let them know what was going on… and that once I finished the projects I’d started, I would be dedicating myself to shifting over to this line of work. It was the hardest thing I’d done… because the ego had resisted and convinced me of so much that was ultimately based in fear.
|
Did I have people judge me through all of this? Every step of the way. Did I have major changes through all of these things? Yes. Did I have panic attacks in some moments when I’d let the mind manage? Of course. Did I face some obstacles? Only when I thought things were supposed to be one way and forced my course in a certain direction, and I was getting indication to go another. Were there moments of financial limitation? Yes, quite a few; but the longer I went, the more I trusted, and the more I trusted, the more abundant and easy things became.
 
All of this is to share that I personally have a LOT of experience in “course corrections”.. and that I know what it’s like to both go with the guidance AND I know what it’s like to try to fight and ignore it. Today, the “leash” we give ourselves is far shorter, far more urgent. 
As the mind/ego can be very masterful at looking in the other direction – because of the discomfort of living as infinite, powerful, and as the Divine embodied – the remembrance of that “the Divine purpose” (also called one’s passion) and what one has come to embody often becomes locked up in the back room… until the higher consciousness says, “ENOUGH of this!”
|
How to recognize something as a “course correction”:
|
  • Everything seems to be going wrong, no matter how hard one works at correcting it;
    |
  • One road block in one’s life comes up after another, with increasing frequency;
    |
  • There are consistent financial limitations (“never enough money”);
    |
  • One’s biggest fears begin to manifest;
    |
  • Often, some sort of addictive behavior (which is a distraction) becomes more prominent in the individual’s reality. Alcohol, drugs (including marijuana), shopping, eating, or even tending more (or obsessively) to housework or children… the list is endless, but it’s something that’s more of an escape or excuse than acceptance and focus.

I know the next question is, “How do I change this?” Here are some things with which to start:

  • MEDITATE. Every day (and sometimes twice!). The more one clears the mind, the more one allows the knowledge of the higher consciousness to come in, in every moment.
    |
  • COMMIT TO ALIGNMENT AND ALLOWANCE.  A simple intention is to do whatever’s to be done so you exist/vibrate in this truth: “I am fully, holographically, Multiversally aligned and centered. I trust this alignment, and I allow and accept all possibilities to allow this to happen with flow, ease, synchronicity, love, __________________ (anything you’d like to add, including prosperity).”
    |
  • INVITE CHANGE INTO CONSCIOUSNESS. Do this exercise after meditation: Sit with a pen and paper; write down, “What if I COULD do this/anything? What would I do? How could this come into existence? What would that look like?” OR “What if I allowed this to change? What would it look like?” Clear  your mind… and start writing. NO BUTS ALLOWED!
    |
  • MAKE A CHANGE. Just one. Start with this one thing, do something DIFFERENTLY… maybe in a completely different direction than you’ve taken before. Something that will make a difference. And let go; see where it goes.

The longer the message of the Higher Self is ignored, the more intense the personal situation becomes… and today, it’s often quite explosive! Change is inevitable and constant now… the choice is, crash and burn, or flow with it and see where the current takes us in trust and love.

I’m currently helping quite a number of others shift into a much more flowing (and enjoyable) state of change! Trinity Energy Progression is a practice that REALLY supports huge transformation, even to a point of being instantaneous. It helps one to keep up with the flow in higher consciousness in the way the individual chooses. I have SO MUCH gratitude for having lived this, for listening to guidance even when it didn’t make “logical sense” (and even before I would consciously acknowledge it as guidance)… because it eventually led me to the point of allowing this practice to come in intuitively from Higher Consciousness to share with others in support of our collective evolution. Did I know consciously this was what was coming? No… but through every step of the way, every “course correction” my higher consciousness pushed along. I eventually navigated here, and am continuing to do so, with more and more flow and change, expansion joy and fun, love, health and prosperity on this magic carpet ride! I’m here to assure and encourage you that you can, too… starting today. Who knows where the path will lead? Let the spirit lead that way… that’s part of the fun!

Namaste,

Wisdom Awakening

I’ve had several experiences recently that reminded me of my spiritual evolution. As more and more people become spiritually aware, I find myself in conversations with them and all of sudden I’m the one who is imparting words of wisdom or nodding my head when they tell me about some ‘strange’ experience they’ve had. I wondered when that had happened – when had the roles reversed and I was no longer the new initiate (for lack of a better term)?  Of course I am still constantly seeking more information and guidance, but it is now at a higher level than it once was and I seem to be filling a new role.

How Far We Have Come

This new role, or rather the new me, is great!  I can tell that I have truly grown as a person. I no longer feel like I need to shield myself for protection or carry a ton of crystals around with me like I did when I first started down this path. Now I simply allow negative energy to flow past me. I don’t get as caught up in daily stresses. I try to see the good in people even when it looks to all the world like the person doesn’t have any. I think it is this openness that has brought even more wonderful things into my life.

Monarch by Colby Hall

As those of you who have followed my blog posts know, I am very interested in nature and gardening and the creatures of this world. You probably also know that I raise butterflies. This year, I have been blessed with many black swallowtail butterfly eggs, and for the first time since my childhood, a monarch butterfly stopped by to visit. I cannot tell you the joy I felt at seeing that little butterfly as she flitted around my flowers and milkweed plants. It seems like the Universe was saying “See! When you open yourself up to the world, the world will show up!” It’s a hard lesson to learn. Especially lately when it is easy to fall into patterns of negative thinking, wanting to hide from the world, or to lash out at it. But if you can remember who you are at your core and allow all of the rest to flow around you while you remain observant of it but not mired in the thick of it, then you can remain open to the very best that this world has to offer. I’ve done my best to share this lesson with those who have come to me recently asking questions and beginning their own exploration. I think it will serve them well, and will ultimately help the world become the positive, compassionate, joyous place we know it can be. I urge you to take a look at yourself and see how you react to daily life. And if you need a little more light, try opening yourself up more to the great things this world has to offer. I bet you won’t be disappointed.
