With all the changes taking place on the planet and in each country, the media and many religious institutions are screaming out fear, gloom and doom. Darwin taught us that evolution happens through survival of the fittest, competition…. which leads to a belief in lack and limitation. It also leads to greed, with people, companies and countries attempting to have power over others. But is this the truth?
When I was doing my first research for the stress release and wellness workshops I lead for companies and the public, I ran across the information that Louis Pasteur admitted on his death bed that another prominent scientist had the correct idea…that our body isn’t attacked from outside by germs, rather, our cells are changed within by what we eat, our thoughts, our emotions…the environment we create inside ourselves.
I was listening to an interview with Bruce Lipton the other day, author of “Spontaneous Evolution” and a biologist, and he discovered many years ago that the environment that DNA cells were in, dictated what they became. Along with that, he talked about the fact that simply by speaking to the DNA cells created a change in them. He said that Darwin wasn’t correct, that evolution happens through cooperation, not competition, and yet in schools and society we have been fed this misinformation that has created this environment of fear, struggle, etc. inside ourselves and in our world. Russian research as confirmed this as well, and they speak of the fact that we are in charge of our evolution and that we can actively evolve ourselves by changing our thoughts, basically coming into cooperation with what it is we desire.
Candace Pert, the author of “Molecules of Emotion” and a scientific researcher, has also come to the conclusion that our thoughts and emotions change our molecules and thus affect our health. Even in the movie “Avatar” it talked of how we are all connected with each other, and the earth, that environment is important…inner and outer. And I don’t believe the movie was just “science fiction”. Wayne Dyer repeated a quote in a recent interview that stated, “When you change the way you look at things, things change.” Quantum science has proven this to be so.
David Spangler, an author and teacher of spirituality, says that it is time for us to collaborate with all components on earth and beyond the seen and unseen to sustain and enhance the ecology of the planet. In a recent interview that I just listened to, he also spoke of how different wines are best savored in different glasses, as the container in which the wine is poured into affects the flavor, expression and really, the life of the wine. He used this as an explanation of how we, too, need to be a part of what he calls “incarnational evolution”…. to best evolve ourselves, evolve our “containers”, so that we can more fully express ALL of us, and assist in the evolution of this planet and even Spirit itself. Seconding that is a quote by Richard Tarnas, the author of “Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View”: “What seems to be unfolding is not only recovery of the soul of the world, the anima mundi, but a new relationship with it.”
We are at a crossroads globally and I feel this personally. As I watch things falling apart around the world, all the earth changes and government battles, I see things falling apart in my life as I’m being forced to let go of old behaviors, beliefs, relationships, and situations that in truth, haven’t been supporting my good, my true Spirit, my wholeness…but keeping me small instead. At times I meet this with grace, humor and open arms, at other times I am filled with terror, anger, and feel powerless. I am focusing on creating open doors in my mind, my heart, my life, so that I can fly forward and live the kind of life I desire.
I searched online to find pictures of open doors and found the one I included in this post. I showed it to a friend and for her, it felt scary, like she might fall. But for me, when I look at it, I see myself flying! I was graced with the opportunity to do a tandem hang-glide off a mountain in Edwards, Col. before coming to Seattle in 1998. We were lucky to catch this sweet updraft and I experienced flying. The entire experience was so supportive, beautiful and encouraged me to trust this next leap I was going to make. If I had known then what I’d face in Seattle, I probably wouldn’t have come here, but on a deeper level I also trust that I needed to die in this fire here to be reborn to fulfill my destiny. That flight off the mountain and how I was gently lifted and carried softly to my landing has been the lifeline I’ve used many times to remind myself that it is going to be ok!
As I’ve walked this path of transformation I have continued to receive assistance from the many new and older mind/body/spiritual therapies out there, sometimes going to others for help and often working with myself, too. This path has led me to learn and use several techniques including hypnotherapy, NLP, breathwork, applied kinesiology, One Command, EFT, Emotion code work, regression work, Spiritual response therapy, Spiritual Restructuring, meditation, visualization, energy medicine techniques, Reiki and other energy therapies along with the spiritual healing work I have instinctively done since childhood. I have seen it’s positive affects and powerful transformations with my clients and with me and am grateful for these tools to use to assist me in moving through these changes; cooperating with Spirit and with the earth changes, cooperating with my body, heart, and mind as well.
How about you? Are you, too, feeling overwhelmed at times? Are you looking for ways to travel this journey with grace and more gentleness? I invite you to check out these authors listed and check out my website www.empowerandbalance.com I offer in person sessions and have had powerful results also from doing phone sessions for people and long distance healing work, too. I also am available to teach classes, workshops, lectures and coaching. You can find testimonials and more information on my website and also some tools to use. I am able to combine therapies in a unique way to fit the person, the situation and the desired outcome. I have taught corporate workshops on various topics, too. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
I’m scared at times but mostly I’m excited about changing me, evolving me and joining hands with others and the earth to assist in the grand transformation that I believe we are in the midst of. Let’s be BIG, let’s be WHOLE and HOLY, and let’s follow our dreams and create and fly through open doors!
