Energy Update – Beginning Of A New Year – Rebirth

Greetings and happy new/now year!

A year has ended, a year of tremendous growth and transformation, radical sudden changes with a lot of valuable lessons and great moments. Now, 2016 is here.

At present time there is a cycle of rebirth that will last as long as the person needs it to last. This is an individual gateway, but it’s inevitably interconnected to the collective consciousness, therefore becoming what I call a “theme.” This theme will build up in intensity until the spring equinox.

What you shone the light on, is now of the past, it’s old. It’s time to put the old, the past to rest. Whatever remnants, residual we still carry needs to be transformed from our fields. During the next moments we will be doing that and we will be accomodating in our newly aquired skin.

Over the past couple of days, I’ve had some overwhelming emotions of frustration, sadness and constantly overthinking last year. What I wanted to do and how life turned out, what I accomplished and what I didn’t, doubting my choices and decisions, then I just started feeling sorry for myself and I was like “Oh, there we go again!.” Silly thing to do, all this overthinking, but I don’t shy away from moments like these, as overthinking means the mind is clogged up and the energy just felt suffocating. Overthinking has its purpose, which I will explain and contrary to popular beliefs, it’s helpful in some ways. Its purpose diminishes when we create or feed the overthinking mind constantly. That’s a no no.

We tend to push these emotions and thoughts away, never really feeling or thinking them, but they are still there. I understand why we have those tendencies, we all want to be happy happy, joy joy, right? But it’s moments like these that are eventually giving us wings. They are to be honoured as part of our current human experience and evolution. We are evolving through them. Mostly, it’s not about “calming the mind,” “shutting down the chatter,” yada yada. It’s about why is it there in the first place? What’s interfering with our harmonious state of being?

Eventually, I sat with myself and felt, reflected and made peace with the past and with everything that happened and did not happen. Not the easiest task, I must say, as I was flooded with emotions, but the most soul rewarding nonetheless. I understood what I needed to integrate, as a wave of clarity swept over me. I also understood that all that frustration, sadness and anxiety just needed to be felt and released to make room for the “new” light. As juvenile as it seems, in the moment I couldn’t help feeling like I’m failing at something, like I’m doing something wrong or have done something wrong. It was clearly not the case, as all is as it’s supposed to be, but part of me felt like it, so it was magnified for me to face it and transform it.

My higher self assured me through visions that I’m fine, that everything that happened was always in alignment with my highest good and everything will be just fine. I know that 99,9% of the time, I integrated that inner heart knowing deeply as it allows me live fearlessly, but the rest of that time I’m like “What’s my life ? And what the hell is going on?” So, it’s always good to receive confirmations. This is the purpose of the chatter, of overthinking mind and overwhelming lower vibrational emotions – to guide us to the root of discomfort, of the deeper, most likely subtle, but very important old programs that need to be brought to light.
This release was followed by a high heart activation, which was strongly felt right on the New Year’s Eve. That was not easy on the chest, but necessary to upgrade and expand that specific heart vortex, strongly connected to the light body.

I’m quite sure many have had similar experiences during this period, so know it’s alright and nothing’s wrong, but the opposite.
The new you is ready to emerge. Let it. It might not always feel pleasant, but most of the time it comes with a sense of renewal, peace, freedom and childlike enthusiasm.

As this new year begins, let’s start it with a refined focus on what’s really important to you and for you. Energy flows where attention goes. Focus was and is still a trying facet for me, with so many distractions and too many things going on on many levels of our existence, but distractions never last long and, eventually, I always get back my focus, thankfully. I found that focus synergizes perfectly with relaxation. I think these are the magical “ingredients” to accomplishing greatness, which everybody is capable of. Relaxation in whichever form is not only healing in essence, it also facilitates the whispers of Spirit to come through more clearly with heightened intuition and wisdom. It is then that the gateway to the Soul Source is most open.

Bottom line is: Things might not always be easy, but do we want them to be easy? Wouldn’t that be minimizing our potential, growth and expansion?

So, let this be a year of complete surrender to what is, of love, peace, freedom, joy and chocolate, lots of chocolate!

And it will be so, because we make it happen.

Energy Update – The Transformation Wave

Greetings!

As we moved through the 12/19 portal, unconscious acts we’ve been engaging in sometimes all our life have become more apparent, as well as aspects of ourselves that we might have ignored and denied through dualistic judgement. The unconscious acts are becoming more apparent in order to be transcended and released from our field. There are many ramifications as the mind can create a really complex structure of dysfunctional patterns as a result of the outer environment. Many times these patterns are unique to the individual and only the individual holds the key to breaking those patterns by cutting the root of it,  and integrate heart-centered new ways of being and doing.

This goes hand in hand with the aspects of ourselves I mentioned above that make up the “shadow self.”

Through this process, it’s important to understand that it’s okay  to feel whatever emotion you are feeling in the moment. May it be sadness, grief, anger, fear, it’s also okay to feel just fine as well. Whatever we are experiencing at this point, it’s important to just allow the experience, fully allow ourselves to feel, fully surrender.

So what are you feeling now? Focus on the heart area. Is there something that’s been supressed ? Is it something you’re resisting the feeling, the experience of it ? Ignoring it won’t make it go away. We can put it aside, but it’s still there and it’s weighing us down. The only way up is through. You’re not doing anything wrong, there are simply many layers of the old that need to be transcended. A conscious choice to do that. Again, it’s also alright to feel alright. What makes this transformation process challenging is the resistance to it. By ignoring and denying the “shadow self,” we are resisting. Because of that, the shadow self might become more highlighted (no pun intended) during these times in order to be acknowledged, known for what it is, merged in our unified field consciously and inevitably transformed through our awareness.

But many times these transformation “waves” might feel quite uncomfortable, especially in the moments we’re in now. We’re deepening this huge transformation process we’ve been doing for years now collectively. We clearly chose Christmas time for this major transformation wave, as we can lift our Spirit faster during this period.
Simultaneously, work with your preferred transformation tools. Highly recommended is the Violet Flame. Its energy signature is purifying and freeing, it’s gentle and raw and its alchemical properties can help us move forward with ease. But there are plenty other ways we can do that. Sometimes one breath is all we need. Try not to judge these purging moment, try to honour them instead. Without purging, there would be no growth and expansion. And there is so much beauty in it.

With all that being said, we are now getting ready for a completion of that which we’ve worked on this year, not as in something ending, but in the sense of finishing a chapter and starting a brand new one.

Most important is to go into 2016 with no limitations. Throughout 2015 we’ve been been breaking limitations, we’ve seen glimpses of our infinite potential and the universal unlimitedness. I see 2015 as a training ground, a warm up. Now this new year we’re going to expand and discover more of our cosmic nature. The purging that we’re experiencing these days and the downloads and upgrades that come after it are facilitating that. We are going to embody our essence in ways that we have not done before and through this embodiment we’re opening up to and creating experiences that are more aligned with the Soul. So, let the adventure begin! Or continue, for that matter.

The end of this month is also a fertile window , a good time to plant the seeds for the new year. Get in touch with the heart, know what you really want for yourself in the next year and go for it. You can get practical and start writing down. This way you let the universe know what you want and it will respond. It is a way to align with a certain vibration and frequency consciously.

At the same time, have no expectations. As cliche as it sounds, it is very important to not place our focus on how those seeds will blossom, where or when. Just take it moment by moment and be present. Life has its way of working in divine timing and how it’s best for us. We only have to allow it to.

Happy Solstice!

Full Documentary: Ayahuasca – The Mirror Of The Spirit

“João Meirinhos created a compelling and sublime documentary that reaffirms the power of the world’s greatest traditional medicine, ayahuasca. Assembling an impressive cast of traditional practitioners, aficionados and western converts, ‘Mirror of the Spirit’ bubbles like the brew itself to reveal the essence of the ayahuasca experience. And, like the ayahuasca vine, it entwines the viewer with an authentic and compelling message that is hard to resist.
Grounded in strong ethnographic roots, ‘Mirror of the Spirit’ captures the spirit of this eclectic mix of contributors all of whom have been transformed by the power of the medicine in a myriad different ways. Once again we are reminded that the message of ayahuasca is more relevant today than at any point in our history.”

Research questions:

– Why are, nowadays, mostly foreigners interested in going through the harsh processes of shamanic initiation?
– Do Western and Amazonian shamans share the same cosmological views about the possibility of life after death?
– Has the replacement of religious beliefs for science, reason and capital left a metaphysical void in modern societies?

Guided Meditation: Journey To Higher Self

Enjoy a journey within to connect with your Higher Power or Inner Wisdom. The Higher Self is you, it’s the higher aspect of you. It doesn’t mean your higher self is better than you or “higher” in terms of hierarchy, “higher” in terms of vibration and frequency. It resides on a higher dimension, on the ethereal plane.

Guided Visualization Meditation: Open The Magic Book – It Will Answer Your Questions

This meditation will help you get in touch with your inner wisdom. That inner wisdom can be found in your DNA, heart or it can be shown to you through your spirit guides, higher self etc. At the end of the day, it’s all you. It’s also your responsability to know what to do with the information you are receiving.

Sometimes we can find answers easily, as most of our answers lie within. Sometimes answers don’t come easily and that’s because they are not meant to. Answers are revealed at the right time. If you don’t get the answers to your questions through this meditation, don’t be disappointed. Ask the question, the answer will come at the perfect time for you.

Full Documentary: The Cosmic Giggle – Spirituality And Consciousness

The Cosmic Giggle is an experimental documentary film that explores the human energy field’s dynamic relationship with our environment. Naturally as human beings, we are connected to a vast network of fluid information inherent to the world around us. When we are children, we are open to this field through simple innocent observance, but because of our collective evolution towards a dominating and fixated worldview, this perception becomes veiled. This film reveals how this process takes place and provides keys for returning to a more primal and authentic experience of our reality.

Full Interview: Lakiba Pittman And The Art Of Compassion

“Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.”―Dalai Lama

I often ask myself why we are here; practising spirituality, learning about things that aren’t so easily explainable and it often confuses me. If we are spiritual beings, maybe we are here to experience something else. In my way of seeing, as spirit beings we might be here to learn about something else. Perhaps we are here to learn how to be human. And to understand what being human is.  I truly believe this gets distorted and even the term humanity can be misunderstood. 

hu·man:
of, relating to, or characteristic of people or human beings.

hu·mane:
having or showing compassion or benevolence.

To learn how to be human might be related to how we connect and  learn what our true nature is while being physically contained in a body, whilst being so emotional and, at times, so fragile. But who can teach humanity that our natural state is actually harmony? How can we be guided into such a state of equilibrium, of love and compassion?  For sure, Lakiba Pitman is doing her job when it comes to this.

Lakiba Pittman is one of those super humans, teaching others how to be their best self.  She is a multi-talented artist, writer, poet and teacher. Her gifts are many, but whilst interviewing her what really came to mind (and heart) was how her dedication to helping others discover the compassionate side of themselves can really inspire and make positive changes in our society.

Sometimes we truly forget what makes us so similar. Whilst interviewing Lakiba, talking about her journey and line of work, we also talked about how simple and easy it is to touch someone’s heart.  Because it doesn’t take much,  we are truly connected, deep down we care so much for each other that we have been told to hide it, put the mask on, pretend we are cold hearted. Because our vulnerability and fragility, the very things that make us so precious and alive, are not valued in our society.

In her interview, you can watch how simple gestures can change someone’s life, how cultivating compassion and coming from a place of love and understanding can truly make us feel alive and more humane.

Here is the interview for you to watch:

http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqtf2wk_fiY

Acting from compassion is easier said than done, or at least this is an excuse some like to use. The truth is we are compassionate by nature. Unnaturally, we are raised in a society that makes us forget that, unnatural because we know in our hearts what makes us feel good and what makes us fulfilled, and acting with kindness and compassion never made anyone say ” Oh dear, I think I was too kind!”. Being giving and caring is our true nature, not the opposite. When we are angry, unkind and disrespectful towards others it hurts us, we punish ourselves for our behaviour, and we pay the price with suffering and heartache.

Once we understand, and start practising and living in a more compassionate way, our lives become so much easier. It starts making sense because we start living in the way we are meant to. Connected through our humanity.

Lakiba has also written an amazing book to help remind us of our true essence. In this video, you can learn more about the book and her inspiration for it.

Here is a link to Lakiba’s book, Bread Crumbs From The Soul– Finding your way back home  ,feature underneath you can …

The world we live in will not change itself, to live in a world more harmonic more loving the first step comes from ourselves . Start the change within choosing love and compassion as a way of being.

Full Interview: Stephanie Marian – The Truth Is Always Simple

Stephanie Marian counsels, writes, talks, mentors and dedicates her life to assisting others transform fear into love and limitedness into freedom. She facilitates their consciousness expansion, their growth and so much more. She truly helps others change their lives.

As she says:

” Fear and love are the same thing, the difference between water and ice. Just as a setback is a necessary part of growth, not taking us back in any real sense but rather retreating in the familiar to again renew our desire to go forward, to consolidate and assimilate, to often, galvanise. We see things this way, in terms of setbacks or progress because we apply them to a linear framework, as in time. We need to understand, we are not limited by time, that is a creation of the mind, a particularly human construct.

There is only energy, it creates movement or the block thereof (fear) creates a stage play, in which we have the lead role and every role – exploring through our senses, limitation. We are all, have all been playwrights and players in this play, return to it to deepen our experience from ‘time to time.’ These ‘fear dramas’ feel like setbacks. ‘Setbacks’ are also, very creative. We are creating the essence required for change, building in intensity in order to expand, move so called, forward. “

Some of the topics discussed in this interview are:

  • Her ability(which everybody possesses) is to feel emotions and thoughts as energy. Fear in it’s many forms is dense, like rocks in a river. Love and the things that come from it is light, it’s growth – unlimited. One creates contraction, the other expansion.
  • Whatever we hold onto, wherever we put our focus, we are creating. We are creation, as is everything.
  • One of her favourite quotes is: ” We are not a drop (of water) in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a single drop.” – Rumi
  • Energy, in thought, emotion or deed, attracts, draws to it the same. Jealousy for example in one, will often mirror insecurity, self loathing in another. Like attracts like. It’s an energetic loop and the only remedy is love, it’s always love. The big revelation is that it’s not anyone else’s love we need, but profoundly, all is eased by self-love; eased, lifted, expanded and fundamentally, freed. The truth is always simple, as she likes to say.
  • We look for complicated answers and complex formulas, distracting diversions of the mind but it’s beautifully simple. At the root of every dis-ease, imbalance, fear, issue and problem is a lack of, a cry for more self-love.
  • She understood through a revelatory moment some years ago that we are all connected, we are connected to All. For each person that she can help, she’s a mirror as she is able to show them what they’re trying to tell themselves, what holds them back, to guide them home to themselves. This also frees her, frees us all.
  • It’s freedom that excites her and fuels her fire.
