Quote of the Week

“Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Opening Doors

December 2, 2009

Hello To Each Of You!

"There's always one moment in life when the door opens and lets the future in."

~Graham Greene

There is a powerful way in which we can help life open the door for us and it is perhaps one of the most challenging things we will be asked to do in this lifetime!  It is the act of forgiveness.  This is also an often misconceived practice.  When working with people we often come to the subject of hurt and anger, two natural and common emotions in life and relationships.  The challenging part is how to deal effectively with these emotions to process them and not carry them for years.  What we know with scientific proof from people such as Dr. Bruce Lipton, The Biology Of Belief, holding onto negative emotions and reinvesting them in our daily lives with thoughts that support anger and pain can begin to create disease in the physical body.  This is not to inspire fear around any experience with negative emotions but encouragement for processing emotions and allowing ourselves to gain the lesson of relationship and experiences. They are only here to teach us more about ourselves.  If we constantly focus on the other person we miss the knowledge of how we participated, reacted and attracted the experience.  We miss the gift which is knowing ourselves more, opening the door to loving ourselves more!

Often we feel if we were hurt or wronged in some way that choosing forgiveness would let that person "off the hook" for what they did.  There is a strong part of our own ego that doesn't want to let go of the experience and insists on painting ourselves in the victim role and the other in the villain role.  We miss the vital importance of what forgiveness does for Self.  It is emotional and physical freedom from the past.  It means we are no longer carrying the pain for someone else's actions!   An even bigger challenge can be forgiving self for the things we have done in the past.  Holding onto that anger, pain and the judgment that supports the emotion is a costly practice to mind and body.  When we see ourselves as victims and hold onto that energy we are more likely to recreate the pattern of victimization with others in our lives.  When we practice forgiveness we allow ourselves to experience of lighter emotions such as joy, love, peace and calm.  Our physical cells respond to the higher frequency of emotions supporting health and energy while remaining in the lower frequency of anger and pain over longer periods can result in lethargy, depression and loss of health.

One woman was choosing to change her life and open her doors.  She was brought up by two alcoholic and abusive parents, coming from that energy she began a journey of drugs and alcohol herself.  Feeling unworthy, unsafe and unloved she sunk lower into self abuse and attracted a mate in the same state of experience.  He died of a drug overdose and she was left to find herself in a world that still seemed unsafe and now completely alone in her pain.  She had become clean of alcohol and drug use and was on anti-depressants and still battling with her emotions, thoughts of her early childhood and loss of her husband, (his death three years earlier).  She was referred to breath work and choose to attend to work on her emotional issues.  She was highly motivated and knew she had a life waiting for her but couldn't seem to walk through the door.  The change she experienced emotionally in one session was tremendously powerful, she realized she was angry with her husband for leaving this plane.  She also worked on releasing the anger she had toward her parents and herself.  Resolving this anger allowed her to cut her medication in half and after the next session she was able to let go of it altogether.  She did this in unison with her doctor's care and was letting that care professional know what she was doing as well as feeling.  Together they made the decision to alter her medication and she is able to speak of her past with calm and appreciation of all that it taught her.  Her ability to move forward in her life and feel new freedom in letting her mate go is testament to her healing.   She is now remarried and part of a blended family parenting children.  She knows that life will have bumps yet she also feels she has an array of tools to deal with life and its lessons!  The light radiating from her being is bright and beautiful.  She has processed the experience of her past and allowed herself to let go.  She is free and present!!  She is modeling for the rest of us, it is all possible!!

Healing is completely possible as we choose it.  We are more powerful than we know to heal our minds and our bodies!!  There is a new book by Caroline Myss called Defy Gravity and I would highly recommend it as it retells the story of many people's spontaneous healing so we can be witness to this knowledge and understand the power we too have within ourselves.

The time is now for us to be well and choosing to let go of the past so we can be fully present now!  It might seem challenging to let go and yet even setting the intention to let go of anger and pain will set you on your path and you will find a new freedom opening the doors for you!!

Come Breathe with us and allow yourself to let go of the past and be present and aware to consciously create your present and future!!

Sending love and light,

"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile."

Loving Self

November 4, 2009

Hello To Each Of You,

" The answer is and always will be love"              anonymous

Healing work, no matter what type, always leads back to the first relationship and often we think of that powerful relationship with parents.  Actually the more important one is the one we have with Self.  In our western culture, we are very externally focused and it doesn't help to create a solid foundation of relating to and loving Self.  We often worry about others loving us much more.  We worry about being accepted by others and having enough, being enough and doing enough to earn that acceptance and love.  We often take it so seriously as to think we have a better chance of being loved and accepted if we are more acceptable physically, therefore physical enhancement has become enormously popular.  We often think we will be better esteemed if we have more money and more prestige.  And yet seeking and getting all these material and physical things have not made us any happier.  Why is that?

Even in the booming financial years when money was handed out like candy and mansions were purchased daily why was there not an increase in personal satisfaction and joy?  Why was there more stress and anxiety than any other time?

Every time I work with a client no matter what we begin with we always work our way to how we feel about ourselves at our core.  This core held belief about ourselves is at the center of creating every other experience in our lives.  Interestingly enough, whatever happened in our childhoods there was bound to be a moment, even in the most loving and peaceful of families, when our immediate needs were not met by someone else.  This doesn't necessarily mean our parents were doing a "bad" job or abusive (though abuse did/does exist as well) however we usually internalize that experience and make it about ourselves.   We can begin a tape that reads somehow we were not good enough or loved enough to be helped or loved in that moment.  This can lead to a core belief about ourselves that is not Truth yet we do begin to believe it just the same.  This pattern of thought then begins to be repeated and sends out a level of energy that attracts a level of experience that we co-create because it matches this core belief.

One woman in her seventies realized she had been in three abusive marriages and that the tapes she held about herself were given to her when she was a child.  She had abusive, alcoholic parents and back then abuse hardly gained attention.   She went on for years abusing herself with thoughts that she wasn't good enough or intelligent enough (though she had been valedictorian her high school years).  The overriding messages from her childhood overshadowed any of her successes.  She always held a job and supported her children and yet there was the big secret she held inside about her worth.  Today she is working on becoming conscious of her inner tapes and re-recording over them with Truth messages.  She is learning to have compassion for herself first as a little girl and then her parents.  She is learning to forgive herself and then her parents.  She is learning to do something positive and loving for herself everyday just because she exists and is now learning that's all it takes for her to be deserving.

Her energy and health is now changing.  The chronic pain in her hands and feet is lessoning and allowing her to be active.  Her energy level is rising and she is thinking of taking on volunteer jobs to help others.  She is realizing she is deserving and beginning a whole new relationship with herself.  This love for herself is healing her mind and her body.   The body can only be as healthy as our minds and our emotions.  She is working with EFT to release old negative emotions and breathing to calm the mind and allow her to gain power to redirect thoughts and energies in the direction she chooses!

We cannot let others love us more than we love ourselves, it is too uncomfortable.  Yet we continue in our culture to look for romantic relationship to make us feel better about ourselves, to fill ourselves and at the very least to feel less lonely.  We overlook the importance of that first relationship with Self to be the foundation for the relationship with another.

We can all do this work!  We can choose to create a healthy vibrant relationship with our Self and feel that love which cannot be filled by another!

"It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and that when we no longer know which way to go, we have come to our real journey."

~Wendell Berry

The Power To Heal

October 6, 2009

Hello to Each of You!

"I'm overwhelmed by the strength of my body and the power of my mind. For one moment, just one second, I feel immortal."

~Diana Nyad

There are these wondrous moments in life when we are truly present and feel the glory of what we have done, or how we have participated and what we are capable of doing and there is joy, peace and often exhilaration!

I have a dear friend who experienced something powerful this summer in that her mate faced a big medical procedure that could be life threatening due to a blockage in the body.  She stayed strong holding onto the vision, helped him to recuperate and heal with her healing abilities to aid him, not to mention her extremely powerful ability to send the love and support needed to hold him in the space of healing.  He was able to move through this experience, heal and come back to his life with exuberance and the ability to move freely and fully.  My friend was able to hold a space that held him strong with love, support both emotionally, spiritually and physically with her abilities and the energy of her own being.  She remained focused, loving and present throughout her mate’s process.   She was the springboard from which he emerged.

The power of her love and energy flowed from her without thought as if a natural stream from her being.  There are moments in our lives when we do these things and we see ourselves and we are raised by the power of our beings.  We are more knowing of ourselves and what is possible here on this earth when we hold the vision and do not veer from that space.

I don’t know that my friend would ever acknowledge her power in her mate’s life and well being but I could feel it and I am sure her mate could feel it as well.  All we are is energy and when we direct that energy in the highest form of love we are more powerful than we could ever imagine.  We have the power to transform what exists into higher energy.  When we think of someone with love; that energy is sent and received.  When we think of someone with something other than love that energy is sent and received and in all cases energy comes back to us.  It cannot be otherwise what we send out does come back, whether we call it karma or not.  This is taught over again and again in metaphysics that the energy we send out in thought form creates in the physical form all around us.

Another friend realized how he had been holding himself back and broke through that barrier.  He let go of the grip fear had and moved into the space beyond.  When we choose in this way we create change for ourselves and everyone involved is altered.  Everyone is freed in some way from old limitations and without those barriers we are expanded, we know more of ourselves and our own capabilities.  We are raised and we feel the power of our being, the power of the love that is all around us and supporting us every moment.  It flows through us and we become the love itself.

Try a simple experiment with a house plant and send it loving thoughts twice a day every day for a week and see what its growth level is compared to when this wasn’t sent.  You will see what love can do when we choose the action that love sponsors!  See physically how love makes things grow, then speak that love to someone close to you for free and for fun and watch the power of that love shared!  You will both be raised by sharing the most powerful energy that exists.  It heals, it expands, it frees us all!

Jump in and see how good it feels just choosing!  See how powerful you are in this world!

"When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."

~Audre Lorde

Hello To Each Of You!

"If the whole world followed you, would you be pleased with where you took it?"

~Neale Donald Walsch

Inspiration is something we all seek and often believe happens outside ourselves. We will wait until it appears or envelops us to create, sing, paint, write or whatever it is we do with it. And yet what if we didn’t really need to wait for it as though it were a visitor who might not arrive after all?

What if you had only to look within yourself to be inspired? What if it were that easy to think thoughts about yourself and the world around you that instantly lifted your mood and created joy so great you ask yourself why you don’t do this every day? When we look at the quality of our days do we usually spend them with uplifting thoughts or the negative ones for company? When we are with others are we in a hurry to share what is great or what is wrong? Can we look again and see how perfect things are? Can we find the beauty once again in ourselves and all around us?

It is a good practice to look at ourselves and truly see without judgment how we are spending our days our lives as though they were precious things to spend. We often forget we have a great effect on those around us as well. If we are imparting negativity it will affect those we are speaking with as well as our own beings. If we knew that consciously how would we choose to speak to others? Would we focus more on the love and beauty that exists or would we still focus on the negativity, the doubt, fear and lack? This is not to suggest we cannot ask for help when we are feeling down and get perspective on life events however the greater gift is to look at the quality of our thoughts and how they affect our emotions. Just taking note will help us to move into a place of consciousness about what and how we feel everyday.

Our emotions are guiding by our thoughts. We are responsible for how we feel every day by the thoughts we are thinking and playing. Often we are programmed with a level of thought pattern we were gifted with when we were children. Thoughts and messages were constantly being played and we absorbed them unconsciously and now we play them to ourselves with that same unconsciousness. The awareness without judgment is the first step to change.

Spending time with others and giving that gift of conscious light is an amazing way to live. It feels good to become conscious of what we are sending out not only to attract that frequency back to ourselves but to know what we are sending out to those around us.

Would you be pleased with where you took the world around you??
Remember there is no judgment, only experience and consciousness rising.
What if we could get to this place of no judgment and really receive the guidance that is here for us every moment?

I had someone come for breath work that became aware of the negative messages he played to himself in his own mind. He became aware but was not engaging with the messages therefore they had no power over him and he could begin to decide if he wanted to continue in this pattern or do the work to change it and choose different messages to play to himself. The love he felt in breath work, in his connected state fueled him to choose differently even for himself. How he chooses for himself will effect those around him as well! We are all one!

Come breathe and become aware and free to choose again!
The greatest gift we were given was the ability to choose for free and for fun!

"Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it's holy ground. There is no greater investment."

~Stephen Covey

Remembering Who We Are

June 3, 2009

Hello to Each of You,

"When we seek for connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each other."

~Margaret Wheatley

I recently read an account of a woman who was homeless and living her darkest moment of fear and loneliness.  She encountered another homeless person and felt such compassion for his plight she began to pray that help come to him and alter his circumstance, she asked to be able to help him herself.   She received the guidance, “go to the church and ask for help to feed the homeless”.  Immediately she began to feel fear that she would be rejected and cast out and this fear held her back.  She then thought of the man in need and somehow her desire to help and her compassion for him strengthened her to move out of her fear for herself and go to the nearest church and ask for the priest and request help to feed the homeless.   She was accepted and aided in creating a program to feed many who were in need.  She then was given a job as a secretary to this program and found her soul purpose.  Her life is forever altered as are others who she touched.

I found this so inspiring not only the desire to be of service to others as this offers indescribable joy, but the ability to overcome the fear that can arise when we are asked to do something bigger that will alter our own lives in order to change other’s lives.  This is stepping out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary, believing in something larger than ourselves to guide us to make changes.  When there is an answer to our call for help, and that guidance comes it can feel uncomfortable.  What will we have to do to help ourselves live something different?  What will be asked of us?

Facing fears that arise from change and how that will affect our lives; will we have our same friends, family connections, marriages and jobs?  Often the insight that comes can bring enormous changes to our lives and are we ready to have the faith that all will be well if we follow the guidance even if everyone around us believes it is “crazy”.  If we let go and never choose the courage to make the changes that come in the guidance we can live forever in that shadow of ourselves always hoping but never truly believing it was possible.  This is painful.

What if we knew,(remembered) that we were so loved we would never be without that which we need and stepped off the edge with that knowingness?  Would we ever truly be afraid again if we really knew how loved we were?  Could we believe in the doubt demons that whispered maybe we weren’t good enough?  Would we contract ever again with limitations because “it just doesn’t happen for someone like me”? If we truly remembered how deeply loved we were we couldn’t indulge in these illusions.  It is like seeing through a scary movie.  It just doesn’t hold any power.

Mediation helps us to see through the illusions.  It connects us to something larger than we knew moments before, more loving more powerful than we ever imagined could exist because we forget.  Remember again and go inside for the guidance the love and the Truth!

Just because it feels so good to remember again!

"I am so glad you are here. It helps me to realize how beautiful my world is."

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Come breathe and remember your Truth again.  Letting go of illusions, fears and connecting up again!

Happy Month of May!
“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures”
Thornton Wilder

Are we really conscious of what we do have?? A beautiful being in my group shared about helping a woman in Africa who had never had a bed to sleep in. Because of the work people are doing to help make life better for many in Africa she now has a bed for the first time in her life.

How often do we really look around us and see all that we do have instead of listing that which we do not? When we look around and see how we have shelter, food, clothing and in actuality so much more than we need we get to see how truly blessed we are. We also begin to realize we need to little to be well. Often we have enormous amounts of things, so much so we rent storage spaces to have more places to put it all. How strange are we to collect so much stuff that we can even forget what is in boxes in the garage or storage. Yet we can still feel we do not have enough.

We are creating the illusion by not being truly present and looking around us. There is abundance all around us. It has always existed and it always will, it is just energy. Gratitude is the door to abundance. When we take time to be in the moment and say thank you more often than I need or I want we are supporting our joy our continued abundance which flows from joy and gratitude. Life can be so simple and as usual it is choice. How can we step into the simplicity? Practice being present for five minutes today and look around you, really look and begin to say thank you for everything you are witnessing around you even if you don’t own it, it doesn’t matter you are getting to witness it. Maybe it is the ocean, the way the sun falls upon the leaves of a tree, the beauty of one single flower on the side of the road. Maybe a person smiling and being kind, maybe your own home your sanctuary and say thank you to it for giving your shelter, for protecting you. Notice all that is around you and say Thank you!

Notice how you begin to feel saying thank you and being completely present. That is the gift you just offered up today to yourself, to others to the world. Where would we be if we said thank you more often?? It would be fun find out! Choose your moment to be present today and begin your chant! Discover how you feel in your new practice, share it with others and they will join you!!

“What happens when the soul takes hold of the eyes?”                            Casey Haymes

When we live solely from our thoughts our emotions are often whirling and we often wonder why we have good days and bad days.  Our thoughts create our emotions and then our behaviors and we often feel like our thoughts are out of our control.  There are tapes we have been listening to for so long we don’t even consciously know they are there. We have ways of looking at ourselves and others that are just habit and sometimes those habits make us feel badly.

Have you every noticed how your emotions can be altered by the minute depending on what is happening around you and then layered with judgment of what is going on around you makes it even worse?  This is a powerful combination that can lead us out of peace and into reaction.  Most of our intimate relationships are lived in reaction to one another because we are playing thoughts and judgments about everything that is going on.  This is how we stay in a cycle of behavior that doesn’t feel great to anyone.

What if we were willing to look with new eyes?  What if we were willing to look through more loving eyes, more compassionate eyes?  How would we feel then?  The answer is more love and compassion which feels better than anger, fear and pain.  So why don’t we do this more?  Working with people on relationships we often focus on loving Self so that we are choosing consciously our path of thought.  Choosing the path which supports our own emotional joy and happiness seems so logical but we don’t always do it.  It often seems easier to be in reaction losing sight of how we really want to feel to how we are used to feeling.  It is the choice of habit over vision.

The work on reprogramming buttons is essential so we are no longer in reaction but in action as in our highest vision of ourselves.  When we do the deeper work of understanding our buttons and where they came from we can then step out of the pattern of reactive behavior and into witnessing what is happening and then making more conscious choices.  When we choose the action that love sponsors we always look back and love how we showed up and there isn’t anyone or anything that can take that away or diminish it in the least.  When we deprogram buttons and step beyond the illusion of not feeling safe or loved in relationship we are able to more freely choose our response in any moment.  We are free.  Understanding how much of our present life is being dictated by the past is key to moving forward and gaining the ability to make changes.

Our intimate relationships are so powerful to help us gain this deeper knowledge of ourselves.  To know ourselves is to love and understand ourselves.  The compassion and love begins inside each of us by our willingness to look again with new eyes; the eyes of the soul.  The Soul is all knowing, all loving and has no fear.  It’s a wonderful place to be and spend time!  Meditation helps us be in that connected space along with breath work and suddenly we see clearly in the most beautiful way the Truth.

Hello to Each One of You,

Happy Official Spring!

“The Universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it” Marcus Aurelius Antoinius

Change is always in motion and yet we are not always used to it or comfortable with it. It is the one guaranteed event that we are aware of and even then it can take us by surprise. The question would then be; how do we keep our equilibrium with the mass changes we are experiencing and come to the realization that we are creating them ourselves!

I have had the question posed recently that if this is what I am experiencing is this not reality? The answer is yes and you are creating that reality through your thought process. We will pulse thoughts throughout the day and often we are not even conscious of those thoughts as we have been playing them for years and now we are no longer sensitized to them. It is like watching a movie over and over where it doesn’t hold your attention because you are so familiar with it.

These thoughts we are pulsing are creating an electric energy going out into the world and that energy sent out is also attracting like energy and bringing this back to us in the form of experiences. Depending on the frequency of the thoughts meaning the magnetic impulse of the thought and the frequency as in how often together with the emotions attached to the thoughts will bring the energetic reaction back to us in a more powerful way. For example if I am pulsing thoughts of not enough abundance and a powerful emotion of fear is attached to that thought and I am repeating it constantly I can quickly bring about the experience “reality” of “not enough” in my life. This is how our thoughts create our reality.

If this is true why then do we hold an intention and often times that which we are holding does not come to fruition? The power of intention is based on complete alignment of mind, body, soul connected state to create experience. If we are choosing to experience abundance in monetary form yet our background might be many experiences of lack then we might begin to have the emotion of fear around lack which can then block the manifestation of abundance in the form of money. Looking more closely into the emotions that might be underlying the thought in the intention is key to moving into that experience which might be a new one. If we have emotional barriers to this new experience these barriers need to be released in order to allow ourselves the experience in our “reality”.

The next issue is our understanding of our reality itself. Often people ask if this is what I feel is this not the truth of what is happening? Again the answer is yes and we can see that in this massive change we are going through globally why are some people experiencing tremendous fear and loss and others are experiencing a level of expansion and feeling possibilities even while these changes are occurring.

The answer is that our judgment around what is happening is also affecting our experience. Again back to the issue and quality of our thoughts. If we are perceiving these changes on a global level to be precarious and life threatening as is appears on the news we will be feeling FEAR and the creation of our days will begin from that level. If we are choosing from a level of emotional fear we are not always choosing from our highest level we are choosing from a more contracted state and this will lead to lower level decisions. I have chosen to not watch the news as it has altered tremendously from when I was a child and it was called “straight news” and has now altered into mostly opinion from many people not educated in making these opinions.

As a culture we have become interested and often obsessed with the negative, from fright movies to gore to horror and in that fascination we become addicted to news watching it off and on all day. This is planting some very fear based thoughts into our minds which will feed from this input for days. This leads to sleeplessness, thoughts of fear of lack of abundance even for people who might not be experiencing any lack in their own lives but are now pulsing thoughts about someday soon not having enough!

This is how powerful our thoughts are and how we can lead into judging our experience and then finding it hard to work our way into creating different experiences that might correspond more closely to our intention.

So how do we work our way out of the fear thought process and alter our outer reality? The answer is to cleanse the thought process and release the old negative emotions that block and clog our choice of intention. There are two methods that work powerfully to alter our outer reality by altering our inner quality of experience. Breath Work allows us to break free from the incessant chatter of the mind and have the experience of peace of mind, body and soul.

When our consciousness is altered to this degree we are no longer held hostage by crazy thoughts nor identifying so much with the 1000 or so thoughts a day we might have. We experience freedom that we usually only hear about and imagine. We are in a state of awareness as to receive the answers to questions we may have been asking. These answers have always been within our being and yet without freedom from the overactive mind we cannot always hear the answers that are within. We get to process emotions from the physical body which can sponsor illness and mental turmoil and let go of the past which can have a powerful hold over us.

EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique is another powerful tool to immediately release negative emotions around past experiences and traumas that might bubble up for us at unexpected moments and take us out of our daily life experience thought doubt, fear and worry. EFT releases these emotions and allows us to see the past with equanimity and without pain. When we can see the past calmly we are no longer hostage to the past. We are then able to be fully present and create from that place of joy, and peace which is powerful and key to attracting the experiences we are choosing!

Meditation is another powerful tool to create life from the inside out with consciousness. Over the years as my own practice has grown, I have noticed my ability to choose my response rather than be in instant reaction, has grown. While I still have buttons that get pushed I am able to go inside for direction and still choose the action that love sponsors through meditation rather than reacting from fear. The practice of meditation allows us to feel and be filled with the love that alters our being. Being filled with the love and the peace allows us to respond versus react when things occur. Responding instead of reacting will alter any situation quickly and positively when we are choosing the most loving action.

If we rely on our minds only for guidance we can be turning circles in possibilities of reaction and vying for an outcome. When we come from that loving place the outcome is already within us. We remember we are loved and we are safe and once again everything is calm. Meditation helps us to live from this state and alters our “reality” instantly!

Come breathe and alter your state of consciousness allowing you to create health in your mind, body and soul! Classes are every Monday and Friday evenings at 6:30 to 8:30, your will find you release tension stress, old emotional baggage and alter your body’s physical state of health just by breathing in a different pattern! Your body needs you to breathe and in today’s world everyone is holding their breath due to fear and stress. Feel what it feels like to be free of it all!

Come experience EFT and know what it is like to be free of past trauma, old relationship pain and anger, fear and loss. From this point of freedom you will create on a much higher level of peace and calm!

Come begin your own meditation practice, classes are every Tuesday and Thursday at 1-2 pm experience the flow of a short soul talk, learn breath exercises to connect up, diving deep for meditation and then a guided visualization for health and well being. You will feel peaceful, loving and in connection for your day!

Happy March! Spring is almost here!

March 2, 2009

Hello to Each One of You,

“Sometimes even to live is an act of courage” Lucius Annaeus Seneca

It does take courage to be here. It takes courage to be in relationship and risk it all to be loved. We think we are risking that the other in the relationship may not love us at some point but alas it is our own love that is more elusive! We risk it all to know ourselves in relationship because as much as we think it is about the other person and what they do, it is really about us and our response versus reaction to who they were. No matter where we go there is no escaping the Self. No matter how we try to get away, numb out, escape; drugs, alcohol, tv, food, more relationships, work, there we are in it the whole time!

The amazing thing we get to experience by being present is how much of our present is being dictated by our past programming. Somewhere in the core of our being when we came into these bodies we experienced fear, pain, the illusion of lack; not enough love-attention and the ultimate illusion of separation. That somehow we are alone in our experience and/or separate from the One. The ego is born and magically saves us by creating survival tools that help us move forward and earn the love we need to survive. We will do anything for some of that which we need to continue on, our will to survive is that strong! Then suddenly we are grown and in these adult relationships which require new tools but we are still using the old ones based on the past. We re-create relationships that help us play out the original illusion that somehow we are not good enough, loveable enough, worthy enough etc. and we are again in pain and fear just like before. The past repeating itself. The old moans being moaned again!

How do we move past this? One powerful step is to stop blaming the other for our pain and looking within to see how we co-created these relationships. Who were we in the room? How did we attract this level of relationship? What were we attracted to? How did we expect to be loved in the relationship? How did we see ourselves showing up in that space? Did we want our love to be accepted? Maybe we wanted our love to alter someone else’s life? Save someone? Finally we felt like we would be loved in the space as it wasn’t like that in the past? What were the dynamics? The only way to be free and conscious is to look within. Our journey is about our own consciousness not the other person, (they have their own journey expanding).

One tool that is powerful is to identify and understand our buttons and where they came from. The greatest work I have done has been on my own buttons and I realized I had many all programmed early on in my life experience. My parenting partner helped me to know they existed just by showing up as himself! I am in gratitude that he showed up in my life to help me better understand myself. The work of understanding my buttons has helped me re-program them and I have found new freedom. In that new space the old behaviors of those around me have altered and don’t even show up anymore. Hence it was only there to help me become more aware. Once I was my energy altered, that in my consciousness altered as well.

We work together like dancers. Sometimes it may not seem as graceful as a dance and yet it is. There are movements and reactions to moves and then it builds together to create these elaborate performances which culminate into the dramas of our lives. We ruminate on them, hold onto the pain and discomfort of them and retell them. I have done this. I now know where it has led me which is away from the truth of myself and further into illusion. It is all perfectly choreographed and all we have to do is show up. There is magic and it will always teach us something more, about ourselves!. The goal is to remember to love. Precious little is said about the glory of the most loving!

I invite you to look within and discover your buttons to do the greater work of reprogramming them and finding your own freedom! Your joy is needed in this world and how you live affects those around you. How would you like to touch the world? The answer to that question will lead you to your deeper work and ultimately your joy!!

Breathing alters our being, even though we think other things do it better and faster breath raises our mental, physical and spiritual health by transforming the old negative patterns of the past into positive. We get to cleanse our bodies of negative emotions and illness when we breathe!

Come to breath classes every Monday and Friday evenings at 6:30 – 8:30 and find your joy and re-create your health, this is your birthright!
Your Light adds to the world!

Happy Love Month

February 11, 2009

Happy Love Month!

“Nothing is impossible to a willing heart” John Heywood

In actuality, everything is possible and even more so to the open heart and mind! So how do we open up? We were once so open, we were the masters. We loved unconditionally, we lived in the moment and the moment stretched on forever. We forgave instantly and let go of anger, pain and disappointment and went on to play again. We snuffed and wiped our noses, smiled and went forward letting go. What happened, why did we change and when? It happens slowly over time we are shown a different way and we begin to adopt that way of being as The Way.

We begin to receive messages that we are not unconditionally loved if we don’t act or behave in a certain way therefore we begin to love conditionally as well. We have our first introduction into fear and doubt. These two powerful energies then seem to become our best friends. We invite them in and they stay for a lifetime. Suddenly, they seem to have control, they are in the driver’s seat. We know we cannot live without love and fear sets in when we do not receive the love from those we trust the most to love us. Thus begins the search for that which we believe is outside ourselves.

The most unbearable pain is not that which is denied us by another though we will believe it is. The most torturous pain is the absence of our own love.

How do we change this? Realizing that most of the past has been an illusion. Were these parents loving us? Yes, to the best of their ability for who they were and what they knew to do. Realizing that they were in their own illusion feeling unsafe and unloved and then tried to parent with these limitations of pain, doubt and fear. How do you do the intricate work of taking care of and nurturing someone’s self esteem when you have very little of your own? The answer is and always has been Compassion.

The most enlightened Being on our planet now has had everything imaginable taken from him and yet he chooses compassion in response rather than anger in reaction. How does he do this? He has his practice his connection to One larger than himself and knows the truth. He is safe and he is loved, therefore he is free. His joy does not depend on having anything outside himself. He is practicing knowing Truth it is all within himself. The freedom that compassion offers us is larger than anything we can imagine yet we utilize it so infrequently.

What if we held back from judging and chose compassion for one who is acting out or being aggressive? What if we imagined how they lived, what they might have gone through which has made them angry, frightened or in pain? Could we then take a breath and drop into our hearts and feel that expansion that happens when we live in our hearts rather than the mind which judges constantly and condemns regularly. When we condemn we are in pain as well as the person we judge. We just jumped into the pit. When we choose compassion we are lifted and the energy we flow from our beings lifts the one in pain as well.

Choose the action that love sponsors as you will receive that love and be filled. This is how we break the illusion of the past. This is how we know our Truth once again and love ourselves. This journey is about knowing Self. We begin to know who we are in the quiet going within, meditation is key. All we seek is within each of us. When we live from this space rather than the density of illusion we invite others to live in the space as well. Begin now and others will follow your lead into Light into Truth.

This is our time of change looking within will offer the guidance we seek. Breath calms the mind and heals the body. Suddenly we can see through the illusions of the past and we know what truly happened and we are free!

Come breathe and let the moans of the past be moaned no more!

Happy Season Quietly Turning Inward

January 29, 2009

Happy Season of Quietly Turning Inward,

“And the world that is looked at so deeply wants to flourish in love” Rilke

I believe that each one of us truly wants to experience and live in love, yet why do we often push it away when it is there in our lives? Why do we not offer it to ourselves in even the most quiet moments when no one is looking? Why do we deny ourselves that very succor we need to survive? We came here knowing; we loved unconditionally, we forgave instantly, we lived in the moment and we knew we were perfect; we were the Masters! How did we forget? This is perhaps the most amazing part of this journey! We agreed to forget only to remember again that the only thing that truly exists is love and that we are the love we seek.

When we enter into relationships and we are dashed upon the rocks of despair; somehow the illusion looms strongly we are not safe and we certainly do not feel loved. Sometimes we feel abandoned as the other person is not willing to remain in the circle; there is such a feeling of loss that it can threaten to overcome our very soul. At times we feel this way while we are in relationship in that we don’t feel safe, we don’t feel loved and our very being feels threatened. We begin to build barricades to secure our safety, walls to protect our hearts. It is no longer safe to let another get too close as we might be hurt.

The agreement to forget; why did we make this contract? This is the biggest challenge our beings can face and we have all chosen this experience. Our consciousness is being altered by every experience, by every relationship we enter into with another being. They are holding up the mirror so we can see ourselves. All that we are holding onto the fear, doubt and illusion is reflected back to us. Long ago we agreed to give up the knowledge we had of ourselves to replace it with what others believed of us.

We lovingly offered ourselves up to this experience. We became programmed we developed buttons of sensitivity that we would later experience in intimate relationship as adults so we could re-explore ourselves and know if we choose to continue to hold these sensitized buttons or to re-program our beings and re-member again who we truly are and remember to love again. The challenge is not bigger than we are! It is possible to love truly, deeply and madly and it begins with the Soul Self.

An amazing journey indeed! The best illusion ever created to allow us to engage completely and fully. More emotions could not be explored than on this plane. We have chosen well for ourselves though never to be considered easy. It is simple but it is not easy. It is always choice. Remembering to love ourselves then allows us to love others. Choosing to see value and meaning allows us our gratitude which gives way to joy, peace and health.

The greatest gift we were given was our own free will to choose every moment of every day. We get to choose our thoughts, our actions, our words. We are free! Choose well for yourself remembering you are deserving, it is your birthright to be healthy, joyful, loving and abundant. All it takes is your willingness to surrender and let go! As you remember the love you radiate the Light and you illuminate this plane. It ripples out to everyone you come into contact with.

Breath is the most powerful tool to break through illusion, to see Truth, to remember and be free!

Happy New Year!

“Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

The answers, the having, the knowing, we want it all now! We want it so badly now we try to skip over the journey which is actually responsible for getting us there in the end. Where did we lose the ability to ruminate, to contemplate and to sit still and witness what is? When did life start unfolding so rapidly that we have more to do than time to do it? When did we begin to think that keeping our kids occupied every moment was good so they wouldn’t get into trouble? When did we begin to think that life’s experiences were to be controlled and kids should be kept from them? Doesn’t the experience teach us how to make different choices the next time? Didn’t we all have opportunities to make choices to get bruised, to pick ourselves up and be responsible?

We find ourselves in these hurries constantly. Our bellies and our shoulders are tense, we hold our breath denying ourselves life and we rush to add more which supports this state into our every day lives. It is time to find our way back home; back home to the Truth. We have been making all this up. Life is happening now inside and all around us. All we have to do is be willing to sit for moments a day to witness what is here now. Willing to dive inside and connect to that which is greater than ourselves in order to receive the guidance that is here for us. Willing to ask to lay down the struggle and then let ourselves do it.

We rush blindly into the doing and the having and rarely focus on the being. The Truth is that this journey is teaching us so well even right now even with all the pain and discomfort we are experiencing in this global transformation. It is here for a reason. We created it all, the rushing, the outward focus, the egregious desire for more of everything. And now we are having an opportunity to find something else that will fulfill us because the outward focus never truly provided the happiness its lure promised. The pain and discomfort offer us the opportunity to go inside and find the answers. It is perfect. The pain gets our attention more than the joy and we begin to question; what happened? How did I get here? Then slowly but surely and sometimes swiftly the answers come; beacons in the night, whispers in the wind. Answers as to what we have been doing and how we came so far off path.

Breathe, breathe deeply and fully and keep repeating the Truth “I am safe and I am loved” Keep repeating it until your body believes it and health is restored, until your whole being calms down remembering again who you are and where you came from. Breathe until you become the breath itself; Life, Love and Joy!

This is your birthright! Come breathe and see through the illusions that threaten to overcome us! Come breathe until you remember again!

Breath classes are held every Monday and Friday evenings at 6:30 to 8:30
