Yep, I’ve Seen Some Weird Shit!

Standard

Dorothy and Alice

A friend recently sent this picture to me. I loved it for many reasons. I could imagine Dorothy and Alice having a conversation about all they had seen. I could imagine how they’d feel in attempting to share what they’d seen and perhaps their concern about whether they could really share those things with others. I think about what would happen to these two young women if they were real people and attempted to go on and live their regular lives after living through such experiences. In our current society, they’d probably be drugged, or institutionalized. I felt happy that they had each other to talk to.

Then I started wondering why no one had imagined such a meeting and made a movie of it. I could picture this great movie of these two characters getting together, making their way in the modern world, attempting to find their way in their lives after having experienced what they did. I pictured their families, potential lovers, and society attempting to understand and digest the experiences they shared.

Then I looked at this picture as it depicted my childhood. To be blunt…I saw some weird shit since early childhood. I remembered other lifetimes since I was about two. Then I started seeing and walking in and out of other dimensions. I would attempt to tell my parents and they didn’t understand. I saw other spirits and religious figures and talked to them like I would to any other adult. Doctors attempted to tell my parents I was crazy and my parents thought it was imagination at best. They couldn’t see what I saw.

I learned to keep it all inside. It almost drove me to suicide as I struggled to fit into a world that seemed so small to me compared to the world I knew existed. I thought that who I was wasn’t acceptable or lovable. As I grew up, I still saw spirits, or heard information, saw UFO’s, other signs of beings from other planets, and luckily started interacting with others who had these experiences as well. It helped me heal this rift in my psyche.

I believe that in the future, we will all be seeing some weird shit, that it will become the norm. So buckle up folks and open your minds!

Storms Of Our Lives

Standard

April 2012 Lincoln park storm

I grew up with severe asthma, died a couple times, spent alot of my life in hospitals and emergency rooms up until I was 40. I also had several injuries, including falling through a hole in a floor in a store (sounds like a sitcom doesn’t it?) in 1971. For some years I cursed these inflictions but as the years went on, I learned to see them as gifts.

Doctors told my parents I wouldn’t leave to be 30 years old. My brother had already died at age 21 when he went into a hospital with asthma and the doctor gave him too much medication, thus killing him. So at age 22 I started studying TM meditation, the next year studied Silva Mind control and the next year started studying homeopathy, herbs, and other alternative health topics. In 1978 I was led to a reflexologist who finally took the pain away from my fall in 71, and it also helped my lungs, so I decided to learn it. Thus began my 34+ year career in holistic therapies.

Throughout my life as I searched for ways to heal myself or at least help relieve some of my symptoms, mental, emotional and physical, when I’d find therapies that were useful, I would learn them and add them to my tool box in my career. So I feel that my health challenges have led me to my career and also my destiny.

Most people with lungs like mine are in bed, or they stay home and do very little. I go for 5 mile hikes, sometimes every day. I know that all these techniques I have learned and my spiritual focus have been responsible for this. These health challenges have taught me patience, empathy, compassion, understanding, peace in the midst of struggle, and strength I never knew I had.

It is easy when storms arrive in our lives, whatever their form, to attempt to flee, struggle, or feel defeated. But I have found in my own life and the lives of many of my clients that these storms are often the impetus for change, opportunities for growth, wake up calls or the signpost to another path.

I have learned to love these parts of me, not to stay attached to the ailments but to be able to love the parts of me that chose this path of learning, seeing how it has served me, so when the time comes for my body to release them completely, the process will be a gentle exhale instead of a wrestling match.

Searching For Sugar Man Trailer – YouTube

Standard

Searching For Sugar Man Trailer – YouTube.

I just saw this wonderful documentary last night and it was exactly what I needed to see. It was a new moon yesterday and I was all stirred up; a cocktail of trust, empowerment, fear, anger and frustration. I had taken all of that into the most powerful New Moon ceremony I’ve ever had and commanded forth what I truly desire for myself and humanity.

Then I walked in to view this amazing story of a man who had a gift that wasn’t truly recognized in his home country. He did find some interest from New Zealand and Australia, but mostly he just lived a blue collar financially struggling life as a hard laborer. Then, he found out that he had a huge fan base in South Africa, that he had inspired many and was able finally to step into that recognition and honor that he so deserved, and in a way, he was welcomed home.

I feel that all of us are searching for the place of home, ready to be seen for who we truly are, and honored for that by family and friends if not more people, not out of ego but out of a sense of needing to be seen for the light we bring to the world.

Whether we are artists, musicians, a Mom, a Dad, a sister, a brother, a CEO, a laborer, or whatever, we all have special gifts to share with others. It might be our smile, our patience, our ability to listen, etc.

When I do past life regression with people, when they are viewing a lifetime, I ask them to see what their gifts and talents were in that lifetime. It might be that they were kind, knew how to bake, knew about herbs, loved their family, not just things like playing an instrument, being a leader…..And I remind them of all these gifts before I bring them back into conception into this body and life.

What are the gifts you share with others and bring to the world? Please take a moment to meditate on this and make a list. You can look at this list when you forget how wonderful you are and how much you bring to this planet. Like Sixto Rodriguez discovers, often we are influencing people and touching their lies in ways we can’t even imagine

Thanks for being you! And…go see this film!!!

Love to you, Katelon

PS..my ceremony already grew fruits and today I had an amazing harvest. So can you!

Choosing a path that enlivens and inspires!

Standard
     I have long been fascinated by the description of “little” people that appeared in children stories I read while growing up.  I remember books that were similar to Gulliver’s travels, and loved this vision of a place where the people were tiny. In one of  Madeleine l’ Engle;s books, she had a brother and sister traveling into their younger brother’s mitochondria to fight the forces of good and evil to save his life.  There was an entire series of books about a tiny Indian who lived in a cupboard and he would come to life.  So of course I enjoyed the movie “Toy Story” and it’s portrayal of toys coming to life. 

      Recently I read Don Miguel Ruiz’s book, “The Mastery of Love”.  There is a chapter in it about learning to love yourself and your body, including stopping the negative self-talk that goes on about various body attributes and parts that we may deem unattractive, unacceptable, or ill.  In it he says “For all those living beings that are your cells, you are God”.  In reading that, my imagination conjured up these various groups of cells creating religions, statues, beliefs and commands based on the “God” Katelon!  I began to examine if I thought I was being a kind and loving “God”, inspiring health and wellness, or was I being a judgmental and critical “God” leaving these cells feeling dejected and distressed?

     I have been into a personal growth path for most of my adult life, so I have been conscious of the importance of loving your body and sending it healing, happy thoughts. But I had never looked at it to this extent and through the lens of my cells worshiping me, looking to me for guidance and direction.

    Then, being the activist that I am, I started wondering what would happen if my liver cells chose to create a fundamentalist religion, thus condeming the religion and view of God that my stomach cells might have?  What would happen if all my various organs, glands and systems all chose to have a different belief about the “God” that I am, and how they should operate as cells, and then chose to fight the other organs, glands and systems, having their own “religious” wars?  Wouldn’t that be cancer?  Is that perhaps what allergies are and other auto immune diseases, the cells in our body deciding that another part of it, or something outside of it is harmful and against it’s “religion”?  

    It seems to me that this is also true of the body of this world, this planet, this collective humanity we are part of.  When we get caught up in fighting over whose God is true and right, whose way is the “right” way, we create these wars that destroy these various parts of humanity and weaken the “immune”system of the world as we tear apart families, communities, countries and lands.

     Reading “The Mastery of Love” reminded me that love is the power and directive that I choose to use to live my life, and that includes how I want to relate to my body…with love, acceptance and cooperation.  This is true of the world I envision as well…a world where cooperation, harmony and acceptance supports healing of all facets of this creation.  It is up to us to decide what kind of “God” we choose to be,  one that inspires death, disease, and destruction or one that inspires cooperation, health and life?
