Following Your Dream!

Standard

Birds-flying_mg1135

  After recently watching the movie “Garbage Warrior” and also “2012: Time for change”, it led me to reflect upon how my life has been leading me  to this moment in time and my purpose on this planet.

    As a child, I grew up in the desert and would play house by drawing house plans on the desert floor and playing house in those “houses”.  After workers would go home for the day, I would explore the newly framed out houses in our neighborhood. I loved the smell of the wood, the openness of the frames and the wonder of watching a house be built from the ground up.

     Since I grew up both very ill and also remembering other lives and seeing other dimensions, the quest for health and a deeper spiritual understanding became the constant path I was led to walk.  Along with this, my sensitivity to unjustness that I saw all around me; the misery in my family, in school and in society, informed my later work as an activist.

     In 1978 I ended up taking a job as the communications director for Prescott College, the first college to offer a degree in environmental studies.  The staff at the time was an amazing group of transformational teachers, forward thinkers, pioneers.  During this time I was able to attend a workshop at the college taught by people from Findhorn, the still thriving spiritual community in Scotland.  This workshop brought together my metaphysical childhood, my love for building and community, my passion for wellness and social activism.

     At the time, my son was attending a local alternative school. I was in discussion with them to receive a government funded “Ceta” position in the fall of 1978, to teach art/music/dance to the children 1/2 time and do the school’s accounting and PR the other 1/2 day.  So I decided to take a leap, take money I had inherited from family deaths along with money I had received from an injury and buy land for myself. I quit my job, bought 5 acres 12 miles out of town, situated on a 20 acre land parcel purchased by 2 families.  My idealistic nature imagined this to be the Utopian beginning of a glorious community.  I thought I had it all figured out.  I had enough, I thought, to build my house. Since the land was paid for, I figured I would build the house over the summer, then have a job to go to in the fall and make enough to support my son and I, and still have some money left over.

     So the project began!  My son and I moved into a tepee and then my Father’s camper blocked up on the high desert floor.  I had a hose strung out over a tree branch, socking up sun during the morning and that became my shower.  I had an outhouse that looked out to a view of the San Francisco peaks in Flagstaff, AZ.  We started work at 6 am and worked until noon. Life was grand!!!

     The man I bought the land from designed a house that was partially underground and was to be powered by solar energy.  The crew was another neighbor, one other man from town and myself.  I started that summer with such hope and vision.  I grew muscles I never knew I had and began my life long dream of community, sustainability and alternative energy technology!

     Things didn’t go as planned as the land owner and neighbor began to talk badly about me behind my back, I found out that I really didn’t have enough money to finish the house and that the house had been built with poor decisions (like filling in the huge bricks with adobe ?!).    I was new to building so was just following the direction of the supposed experts.  I felt confused, betrayed and had no idea where to go from that experience.  My dream of community there disappeared as I got the roof on and put the house on the market, left the land and moved my son and I in with a friend.  All the extra materials I had purchased were stolen by the land owner and the neighbor, who later tried to deny it all.The descent was sealed when my promised job was given to someone else.

     But Spirit had a plan and led me to a reflexologist, for my ongoing back pain from the old injury and that began my career in holistic health.  From there I was led to explore other communities in AZ and NM, and I began my 32 year career in wellness along with my research to create International wellness/wholeness centers and commmunities.  My vision has stayed strong in spite of the many setbacks and often going it alone, but I feel the world coming to a stronger place that now better supports the visions that began for me in childhood.

    Sometimes it is challenging and painful to have a dream and to wait for it to materialize and yet the journey alone builds the strength, understanding and compassion that you need in order to fulfill that dream.  When you look back, you can see all the steps that led you from there to here, all the gifts along the way that expanded your offerings to give to your dream and the world.

     What path have you been walking? What dream have you been holding in your heart? My love and blessings go out to you to feed those dreams, bring light to that path, create the opening for you and your dream to be fulfilled.

I just created a new webpage to teach another stress release technique called the “Wayne Cook Posture”.  It is very helpful for extreme stress, ADD, dyslexia, other mental imbalances and is helpful to use before writing something, reading something, speaking in public and to give you support before a confrontation or an upcoming negotiation.  Give it a try and let me know how it goes!!!

Garbage Warrior

Standard

I just watched this exciting documentary about Michael Reynolds, the visionary architect who not only revolutionized “green” building with his earthships over 30 years ago but got laws changed to be able to be able to research new ways to build without the restrictions of so many regulations. His buildings are self-sustaining and off the grid.

Hello,

I just created a couple new pages on my website. One is a new page on the phone and long distance healing work I offer and the other is another stress release tool, called a “figure eight”.  This page is called “Stress Release Tool Two”.  I will add others soon.

I also added a new video, that my friend, Shay, made, in response to the great results he got from the distance healing work I did for him last weekend. He loved it and asked if he could make a you tube video for me.  I put the video on the front page.

Hope you enjoy them.  Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you in any way!!!

Thanks for reading!

I first saw this movie on Mother’s Day last year. At the time, I was in the midst of my own trauma/drama that comes up around Mother’s day. But sitting and watching this beautiful movie that shows the stark reality of homelessness, my little drama felt so small.

I feel that this is one of the most powerful performances that Robert Downey Jr. has done. It is stripped down and very quiet. Jamie Foxx is wonderful and so is the rest of the cast. The movie is a touching story of friendship, and transformation, for both characters, and the beauty of music. It is based on the book written by Steve Lopez, a journalist still with the LA times, based on the columns he wrote about meeting and befriending a homeless musician named Daniel Ayers, Jr. I was shocked that it didn’t get more attention from critics and during Oscar season.

The movie is an unflinching view of what has taken place in our country since President Reagan emptied out many of the mental institutions and pushed those people out on the streets. Add in the ongoing wars we seem to be in and how very poorly we take care of our veterans, then mix in the result of Reaganomics and then the Bush years…and you have 90,000 homeless people in LA alone. I watched the extras and they interviewed the director of LAMP, the LA men’s program, and she spoke of how for $16,000 a year, per person, these people could go through recovery services, be housed, fed, tended to medically, retrained and helped to be self-sustaining, vs. the $100,000 a year that ends up being spent instead to have them on the streets, the emergency room visits, the police involvement..on and on…for them to end up not getting care, not being self-sustaining, lost as human beings, and really not even being treated as human beings. It is a disgrace to our country. You can find out how to help by visiting <a href="http://www.takepart.com/thesoloist.

You Can Push The Reset Button On Your Life By Katelon T. Jeffereys | Satiama

You Can Push The Reset Button On Your Life By Katelon T. Jeffereys

Katelon JeffereysSince early childhood, I remembered past lives and grew up walking into other dimensions and talking to spirits. This helped me realize there was more to this world than the ‘reality’ that my parents tried to convince me was the ‘real world.’ Because of these early experiences, I began a life-long exploration of spirituality and metaphysics. 

In an attempt to heal my personal challenges, I sought out past life regression. But with my thirty-one years of experience and training as a holistic therapist I wasn’t satisfied with the sessions I experienced and created my own process, combining several modalities so that true transformation could happen.

Often people will ask if past lives are real.  They wonder if the lifetimes they see or feel are truly ones they experienced.  My belief is that they are, and I also tell my clients that it doesn’t matter if it really happened; whether these memories are an ancestral story passed down, part of the Jungian collective consciousness or their own imagination, because we never see ‘reality’ anyway. 

As most spiritual teachers and even scientists explain, life is all just perception, a dream we create from our experiences and the story we tell ourselves about it.  So if this past life story is one that is in our psyche, it is a story that our unconscious is using to affect our present experience of life and thus is valuable information to use in transforming our present and creating a new future.

In listening to an interview with Bruce Lipton, a biologist and co-author of Spontaneous Evolution, he talked of how our unconscious is used 95% of the time. It has stored all the information passed down to us in the womb and early childhood — our parents’ reactions, society’s biases, imprinted upon us without censure or without the filter of critical thinking. I also believe the sum of all we have experienced in other lives and the decisions we have made about life and ourselves are brought into our unconscious as well.  

There is much in the scientific literature that documents that we are responding to a stimulus before we are even conscious of its presence.  This storehouse of unconscious ‘information’ is what we are using to form our beliefs and attitudes, impact our health, shape our relationships, etc. It is what we are using to write our present and our future.

There is a part of our brain called the reticular activating system.  This part of the brain will start seeing red sports cars everywhere if you think of buying one. They were there before, but you didn’t notice them until you started directing your attention toward them.  This experience demonstrates that you create what you focus your energy upon.  So whatever we hold in our unconscious from past lives and early childhood informs the kind of experiences we will continue to have in our lives until we transform that information.

Past life regression is a powerful tool for this work.

I created a new way of doing past life regression so that a person could not only view a past life and  identify limiting beliefs brought from that lifetime into their present, but also identify gifts and talents from those lifetimes.  I then take it a step further and have people go back into that life or lifetimes and change it, thus creating new beliefs to carry forward.  Scientists are now proving that we can alter our DNA via thoughts, so changing your unconscious thoughts can change your life, on every level! 

It is an empowering process to review all the talents and experiences you have collected, carrying them forward, re-writing them, assimilating them into this lifetime, moving through your childhood into the present and thus being able to create your future from this newly redesigned viewpoint.  There is a reset button that we have all so often wished for.  Re-writing your personal history is not only possible but likely. Often healing happens on many levels, relationships can be transformed and people feel more of a sense of inner peace and personal power.
