We are happy to announce that the non-profit Heart Evolution Foundation has a new program coming up that you would not want to miss!
This program is sponsoring a 3 week meditation class in Berkley, California. You can find the exact location, date and time at the bottom of the article.
Here are the major themes of this FREE meditation program and how you can benefit from it:
You learn how to meditate. Whether you are already practicing meditation or if you always wanted to try, but didn’t know where to start, this is your chance! Know that meditation is a life-changing practice. You have the opportunity to change many aspects of your life and that can only bring you more happiness, joy, abundance, freedom, peace and a general serene state of being. It has been proven scientifically that thoughts and emotions create our reality, but most importantly, it is our consciousness that creates our reality. Through meditation, you can learn how you can create your reality, by releasing the blockages you unconsciously hold within, therefore naturally creating your soul desired reality and there are so much more benefits of meditation that you can find out through experience.
From lack to abundance. You are going to be taught how you can remove the blockages to abundance into your life. Know that abundance doesn’t necessarily mean money. Money is not the point. A free flow of abundance ensures an effortless creation and experience of the things that you value most and your heart desires. This might mean a physical manifestation of experiences, relationships, things as well as an abundance of happiness and bliss. When you live in the flow of abundance you will naturally create what you truly need and desire. You are already a powerful creator, you might simply need the tools to do so.
Heart-based relationships. Relationships are clearly an important aspect of our lives. Many people struggle with their relationships and they can become quite challenging. In this program, you can learn how to not only cope with the challenges you might encounter in a relationship of any kind, but also create and be happy in your relationships.
Mental improvement. The mind can either be a great ally or a foe. We make it what it is. Most of our blockages come from the mind. Limitations, fear and other old dysfunctional mental programs can cause a lot of chaos in our lives, but we can learn how to release and dissolve these programs, therefore facilitating an organic creation with no limitations or blocks.

Sabrina has dedicated her life to help others awaken to who their really are and to their highest potential all around the world, America and England, being the first two locations in her itinerary.

A lot of people know that one of the main signs of a Twin Flame connection is the memory of past lives together. Not only is that reflected directly in your current reality, but it is also common knowledge that until present times, Twin Flames were not permitted to stay together in the physical reality, as the light quotient of the planet and the collective wouldn’t be as high as it is now. Therefore, in past lives, things would not have ended in a very pleasant way. I guess you all know about Romeo and Juliet.. well, it’s kind of like that full of tragedy. I’ll to try to take the edge of this topic, as it is intense.
How do these past life connections affect your present life connection with your Twin Flame?
Firstly, it is important to know that only at present times, the energy allows twins to connect harmoniously in physical reality. That is because of the global changes and the process of ascension.
Secondly, Twins of all kinds have been in intensive training to bring something greater to the ascension process. It could be on an purely energetic level, working level, friendship level or as a romantic connection. The fact is that this divine union is now allowed for those twins who want to do the work.
I met my Twin Flame in Hawaii, April 2015, guided to go on a journey of the heart. I knew something important was going to happen and I wasn’t sure of what, but things started to reveal slowly and I soon realised he was my Twin Flame.
It was a bit of a shock when I had my first past life memory of me and my Twin, in fact it made things messier, because my twin is very resistant towards these ” supernatural ” explanations, so I had to keep this to myself. Nonetheless, I have been guided to write about this, as it can be of value for many Twins who, like me, want to work and heal their past relationships on all levels, and most importantly the relationship with themselves!
Yes, all this karmic drama adds to the pot and to the intensity of the energy. Even if you haven’t remembered the past life connection, rest assure that a big part of the fear and discomfort you experience while in connection with your twin is directly related to all the past lives where you two were ripped apart from each other.
Understand that you both signed up for living those experiences. That’s part of the training; it’s part of how you each trigger each other. It’s part of your growing and learning.
I’m going to give a personal example on how you can do something proactive to start healing aspects of this relationship and to ease the energy and intensity of your current life connection with your twin flame. Have in mind that this is not for everyone, that’s a part of my journey and I have been guided to share it.
Basically, while in meditation, I was told by my Higher Self that I was to go back in time and heal all my relationships. There are various ways of how you can do this. Let your intuition guide you. You can do it by yourself, or with the help of a healer. I have been working on both levels, in fact, even while dreaming. My intention is so strong that the healing is happening on all levels, at a deeper cellular level too.
While in Glastonbury, 8th of August 2015, I received a healing where my Higher Self guided me to specific events back in time and showed me exactly what had to be healed. In this particular case I healed 3 different past lives I lived with my twin. But I’ll focus on the example of the one which I spoke about earlier in this article – the one which was my very first past life memory of me and my twin flame. I had this memory while talking to him on the phone , in the early stages of our connection back in May 2015 (I live in England and he lives in California ). My initial memories of our past lives together were connected to him and his current best friend in, and there was a lot of pain connected to it. I saw myself crying on the floor and I knew they were both there but wasn’t sure what had happened. I knew deep healing was needed.
During the healing, I was taken back in time to 1880 in America, and while remembering this life my first feelings were of joy and excitement when I realised I had just been promised in marriage to a man. My father had arranged the marriage and I was very pleased and happy as I believed it was a perfect match. I remember getting married to this handsome man and starting to have a very fulfilling life with him, full of love. Our marriage was very good for me and made me feel safe and loved. However, on a second instance I was taken further in time when the brother of the man I was married to returned from war. He was a soldier and I remember distinctly the feeling of seeing him for the first time. It was my twin flame; I had the exact same feeling as I had when I met my twin flame in this incarnation (in April 2015). Anyway, the feelings were very confusing as I had this intense pull towards my twin flame but being married to his brother I could only fight against those feelings. Once again, taken further in time my husband had started travelling for business and I was left in the company of my then brother-in-law.
I now remember clearly how we fell in love back in that time; we were at a city ball and he insisted on a dance. It sounds so simple it was all that it took – one dance – to have his arms around my body and to look into his eyes. I now remember everything about that moment. The lights in the room, the people fading around as we danced, and I remember the blue colours of his army uniform and the sparkle in his eyes. Most of all, I remember my heart fully opening and connecting to his. It was a magical moment. However, once again pushed further in time I was now in a mess between two brothers whom I loved. It didn’t take long between my husband’s travelling for him to realise what was going on, and in rage, in an act of madness, he killed my twin and after that killed himself. I was left crying in agonising pain, grasping over their dead bodies, with blood all around my hands from hugging and clinging to nothingness. Not much further in that lifetime I made my way to a river where I drowned myself and took my own life in deep despair.
So yes, very tragic, it was just as bad as Titanic, or another one of those crazy twin soul disasters.
Luckily, with the help of the Shaman, I was able to float around between lives and send to all this drama light and love and start the healing process, explaining to all souls involved why that had happened and why we agreed to live that dynamic.
The best part is the healing; when that’s done you re-write your past and live it in a different way. In this case, I ended up meeting my twin and marrying him, while his brother was also happily married to his counterpart. We experienced a healthy relationship full of light and love. With no drama. Once that was done I took this healed memory and placed it on top of the lifelines of each one of us involved in this memory. Very important here , replacing this did not erase all the learning and experiences of the actual life time, it only replaced the feelings and emotions healing all at a soul level, easing the intense pain and karma of all involved in this play.
Now I’m not telling you that you should go and do this, I’m simply sharing what I experienced and how healing it has been for me. The truth is that we don’t even need to go back to the past – we can do the work right here, as we all have the tools. It does shows us the understanding of how things work on a greater level and that everything we live has a deeper meaning, and that the opportunities we have now is for healing and growth in all relationship levels.
Please understand that you have the power to change everything in your reality, to heal, to manifest, to create. We all have this opportunity now more than ever to break free from our own self imposed shackles.
Of course, It is challenging, we are strong souls who have incarnated so many times on this earth. It’s very interesting how everything is so connected and how we keep reconnecting with people/souls life after life.
Funny enough the brother whom I was married to in that past life is in this life time my twin’s best friend, whom I share a great amount of love and admiration for. I met him the same day as I meet my twin .. That’s another story and I’ll be happy to tell you all about it another time.
The greater learning here was to understand that now energy is allowing twins to reconnect to remember and to heal all of that karmic mess, so we can be free and let go. So we can choose how we decide to live our lives. We are allowed to remember our soul origin sparkle shared with our twin, as well as what divine love and connection is; acknowledging how it’s played out in physical relationships between people and different life times.
We have the power to choose what we want and how to heal everything. By opening up our hearts and embracing the magnificent unknown mystical wisdom. Remembering who we truly are.
May your twin flame and all relationship connections heal you. Be brave, true strength comes from within. You are here for a reason. It’s time to heal.
We are moving deeper and deeper in the unification with the soul in human embodiment. No news, I know. But there are many facets of this merging process. Lately, it has been pretty much mostly about transforming self through relationships.
Relationships do reflect you, they reflect your actions, your creations, how you use your energy, they reflect all you are. Many times we can be unconscious of some things we do that may not be beneficial for us and obviously for others around us either. Relationships mirror that, everybody in your life is reflecting you on some level. Therefore, they bring us an opportunity to gain some awareness and clarity on the unconscious acts we might still be playing.
Generally speaking, the major theme of this period is one of the toughies for humanity: self-love. But it is also the most transformative experience and blissful way of being we can be in. Life begins when you truly love yourself. You may live, but you are not alive until you do that.
I am constantly being surprised by the many deeply ingrained layers of the social programming around self-love. It goes very deep and it’s extremely subtle. We tend to self-sabotage, criticize, judge, abuse, disempower, torture and imprison ourselves one way or another. I’m not even exagerating when I use those words. The same way we treat ourselves, we treat others. All that is, first and foremost, a lower mind product, facilitated by the social programming passed through eons of dysfunction.
Don’t get me wrong, we created this for various purposes and they all lead to Soul growth, it’s exactly what we chose to experience, so there is no victim, there are only creators. Now we are collectively moving away from the duality we’ve created. More and more people are choosing to let go of what no longer serves them and all the social programming we’ve gathered all this time in duality. First and foremost, it must be an individual choice though.
That’s where relationships come in. They can provide you with that heightened awareness that is necessary to make you conscious of the changes you need to make to let go of what no longer serves you. As the things that need to be transformed and healed come into our awareness, two timelines pop up. One of it is ignoring and denying the things that need to be released and just keep carrying them in our energy field, as it is definitely uncomfortable to allow all the fear, pain and suffering to be alchemized through you (although still necessary at some point), however you choose when you are ready. The other choice is to ” face your demons, ” make peace with them, see them for what they really are at the end of the day – an expression of your Soul. That is what’s going to dissolve them into their highest aspect. Rebirth. Phoenix. All the pain and suffering come from fear, it comes from the illusionary separation from Source/from everything and everybody. As I have stated before, the relationship you have with yourself is really the most important relationship you will ever have.
Therefore, the solution in most cases is to love yourself. When we truly love ourselves, we open new pathways that facilitate our healing, transformation, purification and transcendence of our general state of being – ascension. All we do and all we are can only come from a place of love when we do that and only the most beautiful experiences can be birthed from it. Only when we love ourselves fully, with each atom of our being, that’s when we will be able to truly love others as well.
I wish self-love could be explained better in words, but words fail. It needs to be felt, experienced. It is a constant choice, an action, a state. It’s divine and the greatest gift you can give yourself and so, I urge you to be your own Santa.
As we are getting closer to Venus Retrograde, the relationships theme is coming up in the collective energy. This astrological event that lasts until the beginning of September will help us look at our relationships from a different perspective than we have until now and it’s making us go deeper in the Ascension process through Soul growth. The fastest way to grow and expand as an individual is through relationships.
Because we are all at different stages of ascension, in the coming moments everyone will have their own unique experience with relationships, but in essence we all have in common one of these branches I feel guided to share now:
Healing – Basically, this is deep mostly emotional healing that’s been stored in our cellular memory for eons. Intense emotions might surface these days, simply observe and allow yourself to feel them without engaging or attaching any negative thinking towards them.
Challenges – We are being tested all the time now and the purpose of these tests is to assist us integrate deeper states of self-mastery and awareness. Again, observe your reactions to certain situations and alchemize them into responses. Try flowing from the heart in every moment. Practice and be persistent.
Merging of aspects – If there are aspects of self that we’ve have been previously unaware of or avoided, now is the time to embrace and unify within. Certain relationships will trigger this union.
Strengthening connections – This will happen with people we might know or will meet with whom we’ll instantly connect on a deeper level. Many are coming together and form partnerships that will facilitate the collective evolution.
Transformation/Transmutation – Anything that is dysfunctional needs to be transformed and transmuted within and in our relationships as well. Again, be aware and observe. We’re all natural alchemists that can shift in a blink of an eye.
I have talked about all of these themes before in my articles, if you’d like to read more details about any of them you can search on the website, but basically this is the core of many of our experiences at this time. In order to flow through these intense energies with ease, a deeper surrendering to it needs to occur, awareness and presence in the Now moment. The rest will take care of itself. Trust. Venus going retrograde in Leo is perfect as the Leo energy is all about simple natural ways of doing things.
Make sure you take advantage of this time to rest when your body asks for it as the energies might be a bit hard on the body due to the activations/upgrades/downloads/transformation we might go through.
Giving and receiving are actions we all do every day, either consciously or unconsciously. We are constantly exchanging energy, whether it is with other people, animals, our environment, the planet etc. That is just how the Universe works. What is most important is to find the balance between giving and receiving and that balance comes naturally when the blockages related to these two actions are being released.
As always, it all starts within yourself.
Most people who put themselves in positions that require selfless service and altruism are constantly giving, without expecting anything in return, which is totally fine. However, when it comes to receiving, they are extremely resistant, which is not healthy. This has the energy of the old paradigm that was based on self-sacrifice, which has nothing to do with the higher vibrational states of being. When you constantly give, give, give you might find that there will be nothing left for you to give to yourself and when you constantly take, you become a bit like a needy energy vampire. Both of these imbalances can be lethal to your well-being.
Being a giver, doesn’t make you a better person, and being a taker doesn’t make you a bad person. Those are two outdated concepts. In truth, it’s all about the energy and finding the balance between these two actions, as that leads to a harmonious flow and exchange of energy.
We need to transcend self-sacrifice into a higher form of divine service that is based on love and harmony with the self. If this resistance to receiving is not released, it can be manifested as a block in many areas of one’s life.
Best example would be the flow of abundance. In order for abundance to flow easily and harmoniously, a balance between giving and receiving is needed. When you resist receiving or you are not open to giving, abundance won’t be expressed in your life as it’s supposed to, it won’t flow freely. Same goes for relationships. There has to be a healthy exchange of energy in order for a relationship to last and be solid.
On a deeper level, most blockages and challenges related to the imbalance between giving and receiving come from the lack of self-love.
When you truly love yourself, not in the narcissistic/arrogant way, but as in a profound feeling of appreciation, complete acceptance and embracement of all you are as a Source spark, “flaws” and all, you want what is best for you and, inevitably, you want what’s best for everybody. The way you treat yourself, is the way you will treat others as well.
So, when love is flowing through you, that is when you give without expecting anything in return and when you love yourself, you will give love to yourself as well and will be open to receiving it, no matter how it will be expressed in your life. Love takes many shapes, it could simply be the smile of a stranger, or the compliment of a friend.
The basic idea is that, it all starts with loving yourself and the rest will take care of itself.
