Practicing What I Preach (and Know)

 It is one thing to believe that as long as I embrace (and hopefully am healing) my fears I will create a life I want from that positive energy; or, in other words, that I am aligning with the vibration of the physical comfort and financial ease I desire. It is another thing to live day to day on the razor’s edge between terror and trust and between acceptance of what is and yearning for more. I hear and receive all kinds of intuitive reassurance that all is fine and will continue to be fine in my life but I don’t feel it or truly know it, yet (I hope it is yet).
This is truly an incredibly intense opportunity to practice integrating the spiritual into the physical. And I am practicing away but there are days when I feel like a failure. Since the underlying fear is so strong it merely retreats into the background rather than releasing – or I have so many layers to get through that more and more fear just comes up. Either way, every hour of every day I have to choose again to be in trust and to reconnect with the feeling of being loved and supported. I like it better when things flow easier or when an opening occurs and then I get to experience a shift right away. This re-choosing every day, many times a day, is hard and I worry it is requiring more focus than I will continue to have.
I am proud of how I am holding up but oh my god!! What in the world did I agree to that led to this and how do I get it to change without losing myself in the fear?
Prayers are gratefully accepted!!!

Aligning with my Higher Self

 

I had some rather revolutionary thoughts today after realigning with my higher self.  These interesting questions came to me: What if it is not in alignment with my higher self for me to have a job right now? What if my financial situation is absolutely perfect for me at this time and what am I learning or healing because of it?

This wonderful insight came after much mental chatter.  I have been grappling with reconnecting with my heart’s desire, especially with sorting out what is in my heart and what is leftover from my ego. I do not have clarity on that yet.  I have also been visiting a lot of self doubt and self-blame energy, in addition to the fear,  around my financial situation.  As I was contemplating all of this during my morning walk,  I saw a sign this morning outside a local coffee shop that read something like this:  ”If you are depressed, perhaps you have miscounted your blessings.”

This got me to thinking about how much time I spend focusing on things/events that I do NOT consider blessings which led me to my belief that if things are not flowing in my life I must be doing something wrong, which reminded me of something I recently read and re-remembered – that we are all in the absolutely perfect place for us for maximum spiritual growth. Today as all my thoughts were whirling around about my struggle to find a job or working ‘harder’ to build my business I also began wondering about my ego’s part in all of my ‘delays’ or side trips away from financial abundance. I am also not sure about what to focus on for my life (as a goal) as what I thought I wanted has not come to me in 10 years.  This is why I blame myself so much because I assume I have done something wrong or am still sabotaging myself or what I want has all been constructed from my ego and I still haven’t discovered my heart’s desire. SHEW!!

So here I am going round and round, not feeling particularly great when it struck me that if we are in the perfect place for our growth and I don’t feel good then I might not be in alignment with my higher self. So I intended that alignment and yes, indeed, I was pretty far out of alignment.  Once I shifted I felt better and those afore-written thoughts came to me.  I could feel all sorts of inner emotions and energies calming down.

Now some little troublemaker inside wants to say that I like that thought because it is an excuse not to get out there and pound the pavement more to look for a job. But it feels like an aha rather than an excuse so I am going with it until it doesn’t feel right. I am being led deeper into my understanding and acceptance of how things work at a higher vibration.  The resistance to going there and to knowing this has been dragging me down. So I embrace my situation fully, accepting the experience as a mechanism for fabulous growth, knowing I can create a joyful life from staying in alignment with my higher self NO MATTER WHERE IT LEADS ME!!

Being 50

 I will be have been on earth for 50 years in two days.
I am very aware of the wonderful changes on earth and where they are leading to great spiritual growth and health. I know there is, and will continue to be, confusion and heartache as systems all over the world crumble in preparation for the rebirth of true equality and compassion. I am also aware of my contribution, on a universal and individual-by-individual basis, to the massive energy shift that has occurred with and on the earth and with humans.
I just don’t know what to do with myself in my every day life anymore.
I actually feel more confused and unsettled now than I did when I was a teenager. I was so sure of myself then – sure of where I wanted to go and how to get there. I have tremendous confidence in my talent and abilities, something I did NOT have then, but I definitely have no clear goals. I am not even sure I believe in the concept of goals anymore.
I seem to have conflicting beliefs around this too. I think I need to tap into my heart’s desire and express my decision about what I want so it can be created at the same time I know it must be in alignment with my higher self. Now is it? Is my heart’s desire in alignment with my higher self? Well to answer that I would have to know my heart’s desire and I am not sure I do right now. Too many things I have wanted have NOT been created in the physical world. Were they not in alignment with my higher self or where they truly not my heart’s desire?
I am exploring it and allowing healing of old resentments and hopelessness that it will never happen. I am re-approaching my fear of lack of apparent income and what is really going on under that, and the accompanying anger around , as well as my belief that somehow at 50 I should be more settled into life with all of this all ready figured out.

Stop Being Mean to Yourself

 he looked so battered. She had been abused to the point of hopelessness, where she wouldn’t even allow herself to feel or express her own personality. I felt my heart break when I first saw her. She had been told over and over that she was ugly, worthless, stupid, not good enough for anything, and that she would never be accepted or loved, as well as other mean condemnations. Each word was like a slap, a punch a cut until all she could do was stew in her misery. I was ashamed that this had been allowed to happen.
The problem was that this was not some little girl living in a shelter or on the streets. This was a vision of an inner child representing the part of me that took on all the horrible things I said and projected at myself, all my dislikes, disappointments, judgments and anger, and all that I absorbed from others.
This part continued to attract more negative energy, emotions and thoughts because that is all she knew. This was a part of me that I have been running from for a long time, only I didn’t know it existed. I was actually shocked to find her because I have done so much work with inner children and emotions.  She was covered in so much other anger, sorrow and fear that she was well hidden but her presence meant that no matter how much clearing I had done up to now the depression, anger and fear came back.
Finally I reached a point of such integration of my higher self/soul energy that I was ready to face what I had done and allowed to be done. I was ready to take full responsibility for my thoughts and prior actions and I trusted myself in this enough to uncover this beautiful, vulnerable hurt part of me.
In my vision I began talking to her, telling her I was so sorry for all the self- abuse. I asked for help from angels and the appropriate healing aspects of my higher self to come support her. At first she was reluctant. Wouldn’t you be?? Slowly, very slowly, she allowed herself to be comforted while I did a lot of healing on all the other internal emotive parts that showed up around this – the shame, the anger, the blame, etc. I also cut all the cords to all the people that I had connected with through this self-abuse. I released all inherited issues and beliefs (from my biological family, cultural group and soul family) that were tied to it also. I asked for help in releasing any similar energy I might have picked up from my parents or siblings or loved ones in order to help them. Then I disconnected from the aspects of the human mass consciousness with the same energy so I could make sure I was dealing only with my own stuff. I also was hyperaware of my inner thoughts, correcting myself each and every time I began to even think something negative or judgmental towards myself.
Over the course of 2 days and nights my visions showed me how she began to allow me to hold her and talk to her. She began to show up as more healed and more outgoing. Her hair grew and her clothing mended. This is how my visions show me that inner stuck emotions and beliefs heal.
Finally at a birthday lunch the day after my actual birthday she showed herself to my friend (all my friends are psychic) then to me. She was taller, a little older, dressed in a beautiful pink dress with a ribbon in her hair. There was a tall gorgeous, radiant angel with her. She gave me a bouquet of flowers and thanked me. Then she integrated.
My heart and my energy field expanded. I had no idea how restricted it had been since I have experienced MANY expansions over the years. I was then able to help my friend with an activation she needed and have since found it easy to freely offer assistance to others when my guidance asked me to. I feel lighter and freer than I have in a long time (ok maybe ever in this life).  I have more optimism.  There have been other developments since then but I will write about them in future blogs.
One of the neatest things is that I got to help one of my favorite clients with a part of her that was very similar today. Isn’t it great how that happens??!!!

Addressing Fear in a Different Way

 After some beautiful and intense inner shifting last week, wherein I once again committed to expanding my awareness of myself as my ‘true’ or higher self, I went into some equally intense fear of how that would affect my every day physical life. I thought I was being guided to do something I do not want to do (move across the country).
My usual way of dealing with this would be to imagine walking into the fear, shining love or embracing it until it integrated. I felt too overwhelmed this time so I tried something else that seemed to work perfectly.
Each time I found myself worrying or panicking about what I thought I was being guided to do, I imagined connecting with the bright, expanding, heart centered inner light that is me. Since I am clairvoyant I could see it. I also let myself feel and sense the energy of that inner light, then I allowed the light to expand throughout my systems.
After a few seconds of imagining this re-connection, I felt calmer and my mind would stop the endless circling around what I did not want. Each time worry crops up I contract inside and then block whatever the most appropriate flow of energy is for me or wherever it might lead me. After reconnecting with my inner light, I felt myself relaxing and opening more, allowing the energy to flow once again.
I have no idea if I will be moving or not but right now it is not in my highest and best interest to focus on it. I am focusing on my expanding inner light, myself as my higher self and my internal intuitive guidance for TODAY!!

More Proof of Change

 

So much change is going on within me that I haven’t even begin to describe it all in these blogs.  One of the things I like is proof that these inner changes are making a difference in my every day life. There is a part of me that would like this proof to be financial abundance, a mate and nourishing community.  None of that has shown up in my life yet BUT my own reactions are much calmer and more peaceful. I have hope that will lead to enjoying life thoroughly no matter how it turns out.

Today when I was trying to purchase some books using my ATM card it was denied, twice.  I didn’t have any cash on me and I don’t own any credit cards.  Instead of getting  angry or embarassed I just told the clerk I would have to come back another time and went to my  bank. I didn’t notice any fear either.  It turns out there were two other people in the branch having the same problem, as it was the bank’s fault.  Now I still have to wait for a new card and find my check book to pay for things but there is nothing wrong with my account.

I reacted VERY differently than I used to.  I didn’t blame anyone, I didn’t yell at anyone, I didn’t try to force my will on anyone. I was calm, accepting and took appropriate action. I am loving myself right now!!

Then..... Acceptance

 First I had to redefine surrender as receptivity so I could soften and allow.
Then a very deep lovely wave of feminine divine energy rose up within me, suffusing every thought, every cell and every emotion in everywhere and when I exist. We are all integrating some layer of this depending on our level of openness and receptivity.
Then waves of fear and ego made their presence known, strongly resisting the reconnection with this new level of divinity within. I worked with them for almost an entire day before I found the inner calm again.
Today lots of tears with more clearing of old beliefs and expectations so I could connect with the energy stream of abundance and move energetically into ease for 2010.
THEN, acceptance. – Acceptance of how things have gone, of what has actually occurred in my life, and of all the experiences I have endured up to this point as being perfect. It is perfect because if it could have been different for me it would have been. I have also been shown how some of the harshest most hurtful events were created to support maximum spiritual growth for me. Complete (or as complete as it can be given my state at the moment) acceptance is allowing the energy to flow freely, full of vitality and joy. Plus I am calm again and able to write easily.
How is this affecting my every day life (after all that is the focus of these blogs)?
Well today I had a bad headache building until I could get to the acceptance energy, then it stopped. My client today went through a very illuminating process to move into abundance and 2010 energy and helping her through it helped me relax and lift my vibration also. 
During transitions I tend to be much more vulnerable to the energies around me and this time it was no different. Earlier in the day I had to go to the bank and was triggered by or picked up a bunch of generalized fear energy from the tellers. It was so strong I had to take a shower to release it. I forgot to check in with my guidance about attending a dinner I was invited to and when I got there I was irritated with the hostess, someone I love dearly, and negatively impacted by her friend’s energy. Normally I would shake that off, but I couldn’t do it while I was there because of the processing I have been doing. I have wanted to go to the movie theaters since last Tuesday but each day receive the intuitive guidance not to (so I won’t be around so much energy from other people that is not nurturing to me OR from the movies themselves). I haven’t spent too much time with anyone since this process began percolating and I was very dissatisfied with being alone so much until today’s acceptance portion of the processing happened.
As this process began I was intuitively guided to begin a quilt using funny cat fabric that I have been collecting for years, even though I also got the quilt is going to be for someone else. I don’t usually make bed or lap quilts because I just don’t like them (I make quilted wall art) but this time I am. Sewing helps me focus completely on right now and keeps my mind from whirling around too much.
I was also guided to release all my paints and some jewelry-making and knitting supplies within the past week. Guess what? Through a very synchronistic set of events it almost ALL went to people teaching at risk kids – very cool. The timing was perfect (and divinely guided).
When I was in the resistance phase I ate a lot of food, beyond what was comfortable, and ate a lot of food that negatively affects (ie food I am allergic to or lots of sugar, which is like eating poison for me) my body. I was caught in the grip of my addictive behavior around food and could not make myself stop until I was able to address the fears about this next level of being. Thereafter, I have been able to get back to eating in a way that supports me (rather than hurts me).
I had a thought last week that if I stopped using my ATM card and actually used cash I would probably stick to my budget better. The next day my ATM card stopped working!!!! There was some glitch with the banks computers and it got taken care of pretty quickly but wow!!
Right now I am sitting here very calm and content, not beating myself up about anything, with no plans for the rest of the day, open to my intuitive guidance. That is how I have been affected so far.

Healing the Wounded Inner Guardian/Ego

 

My resisting ego showed up this morning as a hurt, arrogant male energy fighting for his survival.  First his energy interfered with some processing I was in the middle of last night ( I had to just stop and do something else), then he took form and talked to me in my dreams last night, then he showed up in meditation this morning.

He was hurt and angry that I was trying to push him aside.  This part of me felt it had done me great service with all the protecting and holding on to ideals.  I thanked him profusely for his service to me.  I then reminded him that I am not trying to kill him, just balance him with softness, wisdom, intuition and heart.  I also reminded him how hard he works to stay vigilant and we looked at how battle weary he has become (even his armor is dented and tarnished, with pieces missing) trying to hold on to territory that clearly isn’t helping me at all.  Wouldn’t he like a health upgrade so he is stronger and can enjoy life more?  Then we reviewed many scenes of my physical life that have been harsh and looked at what all the inner conflict has created in my life and in my body.  He agreed to change, calmed down and allowed more integration.

He got bigger in my vision and began glowing.  His body healed its wounds and even his hair changed from straggly grey to thick, curly dark brown. His armor kind of dissolved and he turned golden.  Then he integrated into the beautiful divine feminine energy that I uncovered within me over the weekend. Beautiful.  The process that was interrupted by this part of me is continuing.

Note:  I am aware that I am referring to an inner emotional part of me.  Those parts show up intuitively as fully developed personalities in my meditations and spiritual work.  Sometimes they are inner children, sometimes they are one dimensional grown-ups.  They are often hurt or weak or dirty or undeveloped looking until they begin to heal and integrate.

Triggering Healing

I get triggered by all sorts of events, places and people. Triggered means that some inner emotion or energy is activated or pushed to show itself -usually because it is time for healing.

On Tuesday night I went to a dinner with a friend and someone else she had invited triggered me big time with her neediness, illnesses and sticky energy (a bit of ’save me’ kind of energy). I was triggered because I have had (and may still have) that SAME energy within me – the desire for someone else to save me – but ALSO because I have been going through a rather amazing transformation this week that is leading to a much more integrated and fulfilled me. I also know it is going to change my life a lot once it is fully integrated.

So the tricky, fearful ego (and the very smart higher self) used this woman’s neediness and illnesses and my reaction to her energy as an opening to both take in some of her attachments (nasty bug looking energy) and to bring up or uncover another pocket of an old frequency that needed healing in order to move into the new integrated being of me. My pattern is that when I am afraid of moving ‘forward’ in my spiritual growth I find some way to bring up old energy that interferes with smooth, easy transformation. It also makes sure that I am thorough in my integrating so it goes faster (remember, faster is hardly ever easier).

My reaction was that I didn’t sleep well Tuesday night and yesterday I was irritated and angry at store clerks, things did not go smoothly for me with a bank transaction (I actually had to leave the bank and go to another branch) and I began eating out of control. I intuitively got that it was due to my reaction to the woman the night before and took steps to clear what I might have picked up BUT I didn’t see or was not aware of how this was used to bring up some old energy that was within me. So I didn’t address that until last night. Once it cleared I was able to allow my current process to continue – until my inner damaged protector showed up to resist (and he integrated this am (see blog 1 for today for that story).

I made sure to bless that woman and my friend for their role in helping me with the next step in my healing.

Being Honest About my Fear

OK I admit it. I am terrified. No matter how much processing, sitting with it, re-parenting, breathing, meditating, distracting or imagining I do, I am still terrified. I have comforted myself with the reminder that every choice I make tends to be for deep spiritual growth even when I am not aware of it, and I am still terrified.

My ego (the inner judge and blamer) tells me that no one will want to work with me if I admit that I am terrified about what is happening to me financially so I have been trying to either not talk/write about it or be very positive when I do. The truth is even gifted healers and intuitives have their own stuff to deal with. I hit a wall last night and all I can do right now is admit it.

I know I am one of the luckier ones because in 2 months when I have no more money I can sell or give everything away and go live in my friend’s ashram. It is not what I want to do or where I want to live geographically, but it is available. At least I have a place to go to and a working car to get me there.

I have done everything I have been intuitive guided to do (that I was aware of), I have worked on this fear for a year, I have consistently and constantly looked for a job, I have marketed my business, I am doing my best to give of both my time and my money so I am not so constricted energetically and still not enough money comes to me and I am not in a situation where I am supported by others for my physical comforts (i.e. no family, no community, etc). I do believe that had I been more frugal these past few years I might have still had enough money for about 4 more months, but that could just be me judging myself and I can’t do anything about it right now anyway. It is done.

How is it that I can be so powerful and gifted as a healer and intuitive for everyone else but can’t create what I need in the physical world? Although even as I write that part of me reminds me that up to now I have been ok (perhaps not getting what I want but definitely what I need). It is only the reality of my bank account and the math that tells me the money running out that has me terrified. I want to be more in the now and not worry about the future but we are talking a month and a half.That might as well be now.

So today – more walking to drain off some of this excess energy and more inner work to break the stranglehold of whatever is blocking me from functioning more adeptly in the physical world OR whatever keeps me from accepting that this is perfect and all will be well even if I end up with only a few small appliances and some cloths in an ashram.

But I am asking for help. I am asking for supportive prayers and healing energy from all who read this. May I find a way to connect with my inner abundance and find a way to create that in the physical world. May whatever growth I am generating from this be quick (MUCH quicker) so that I can shift this energy.
