Taking Our Power Back!

Standard

M&m2

Photo from Wikipedia.

What do M and M’s have to do with taking our power back?  Be patient….I will get to that in a while 🙂  They refer to a ritual I created.  But first…some information;

I have read some metaphysical authors talk about the belief that if each individual just faced and healed their own darkness, the world would heal and we could just then move forward in a light based world.  I used to believe that, too, but now, although I believe that is part of the equation, I don’t believe it is the only part.  Through the work I’ve been doing with John,  http://www.freedom4humanity.wordpress.com I’ve learned more about the dark technologies that have been directed at and placed in humanity to keep us in darkness.  I’ve learned more about the veil that was designed to keep us separate from Source and our divinity,  placed over us at the beginning of each life experience, more effective and present with some people than others.  (I remembered past lives since age 2). And what the dark forces and dark humans couldn’t control via these, they made sure to control via false beliefs imbedded in religions, toxins placed in our water, air, food and soil.  I’m not talking about victim consciousness here either, as it is a reality that these people, beings and technologies exist.  So no matter how much inner healing we manage to achieve, these technologies have still existed, and when you throw in dark world governments, dark based economic and financial systems, social structures meant to keep humans enslaved and separate from each other and their divine selves, it makes it hard to shift just our inner reality and make a huge difference.

But…..but……we do have power. We DO have power.  And it is helpful to do our inner work.  I recently read an article by David Hawkins I believe it was…not sure…and it talked about how for each person vibrating at a higher vibration of love, compassion….it helped raise up others, many others, that were stuck in fear or anger.  Just notice the feeling of walking into a room after there has been an argument in it, or watching the news, and feel the density of the energy vs. walking into a calm, peaceful garden, or a home filled with love.    So how you feel about yourself and others DOES make a difference.  As each of us does our inner work to face and release old limiting beliefs, habits and perceptions, we help shift the environment around us, which helps raise the consciousness of the planet.  The more the consciousness of the planet is shifted, the harder it is for the dark to remain in control.

I feel that the various uprisings around the world, the protests, the occupy movement, those marching in Ferguson demanding a revision of lopsided governing that targets people of color, forces us as individuals and those governing to begin to question their own darkness and begin that important and powerful process of facing and releasing the perceptions that keep us all in fear and reaction.

At the same time though, through these daily sessions I am doing with John, I am seeing first hand how important it has been to work to shut down these dark forces, and dark humans, to assist in moving them to surrender.  This surrender has happened and we are just waiting now for the public announcement to acknowledge this to the world.  Once that happens, the technologies will finish being shut down around the planet and within humans, the clean up can happen to restore our planet to health and wholeness and we will shift onto a timeline of Oneness, and be reunited with our divine selves.  So all the inner work will have served to assist us in getting to this point and in living in Oneness once this shift happens.  Each time someone wakes up, takes back their power, the dark loses and is informed of the loss of their control.

John and I have targeted for this transition to happen with peaceful surrender and not arrests and trials, as that supports a timeline of Oneness and love, and those we are working with in these sessions have been targeting the same.  Even after the shift though, I believe that it will still be important and valid to learn to take back our power.  We will be living in a new world, reconnected to our ability to create and manifest, so we will be adjusting to this new way of being in a new world.

So now….for some ideas on taking back our power:

In 2013, I was on one of my favorite hikes, the West Fork in Sedona, AZ.  The trail winds back and forth across a river bed, in between lovely striated red and black cliffs.  As I began my walk, I was led to start stating, out loud, things I was choosing to release and forgive within me….being a victim….and that led me to release all the ways humanity had been victims…and that led me to release and forgive all the perpetrators ….being angry….leading to releasing all the anger in the world…leading to releasing all the situations and controls in the world that led to that anger….on and on I named things…some in broad general terms, others in specific incidents, individuals and habits.  I did this all the way in until I had finished that part of the journey.  I stopped and rested, taking time to soak in the beauty of my surroundings and all that had been released.  On the way back, I felt this tug on my shirt, feeling a strong energy and guidance, and so I started taking back my power from that person I had felt victimized by, then taking back power for all those who had felt victimized, then taking back power for all those who had gotten stuck in being abusers….on and on it went through all the list I had been releasing for on the way in, all the way to my return to the trail head.

In 2012, I was led to do a ritual to take back my power.  I wanted it to be something fun. and I wanted to use something that I could eat, so I could get a tangible feeling of taking my power back into me, to assimilate, to be nourished by, to reabsorb back into my system.  So I created the M and M ritual.

I’ve been using stevia for many months now, so could not consume an M and M now, but back then, it worked.  You could use anything…almonds, strawberries, jello shots if that is your thing, anything that brings you comfort and pleasure.  I love creating sacred circles, so I placed a mug, that to me symbolized power, into the center of a circle.  All around the circle I placed markers for each person, situation and event that I was going to take back my power from, some with physical objects that represented them, others with just the name written on a piece of paper.

I called in the four directions and all the spiritual beings that I call in for my sacred circle.  Then I sat there, and taking an M and M in my hand, I spoke of the person, situation, event, feeling, ailment, etc. and how I had given my power away to them, placing an M and M next to their marker. I did this for everything around the circle. Then, I went around again and ceremoniously took each M and M from each marker, announcing that I was now taking back my power, and placed each M and M, in the mug. I took my time to acknowledge the act of taking back my power from each of these people, ailments, circumstances.  Then, finally, I ate the M and M’s, one by one, again, taking the time to acknowledge, that I was now returning the power to me from giving it away to ……fill in the blank.  I chose to use M and M peanuts, as I wanted to acknowledge how nuts it is to give away our power. It may look sweet in the moment and be dressed in alluring colors..but at the core, it is nuts!!!

My career has been based on helping people take back their power, clearing away the dross that hides that bright diamond of YOU inside, using 16+ therapies to create individualized sessions for assistance.  Once this dark surrender is announced, we will be able to make progress in our healing much more quickly, with no more roadblocks to our success.  If I can help you in any way, please let me know.

My website http://www.empowerandbalance.com has several meditations, stress release and energy medicine techniques there for free or donation, to assist you, and lists my therapies and other offerings as well.

We are almost to the end of this dark time friends, please join me in the light!!

Accepting Responsibility In These Transforming Times!

Standard

The key

I’ve spent many, many lifetimes working for the transformation that I believe we are experiencing now. The dark elite has kept humanity controlled a very long time; enslaving us, lying to us, doing all they could, very creatively, to keep us ill, poison the earth and keep humans in fear, dis-empowered and controlled.

We all might complain about the destruction to the earth, the corruption in governments, unemployment, and all the other situations and conditions we don’t like. At the same time though, as long as we’ve been able to complain, we’ve put the culprit outside ourselves. When we do that, we can, out of victim-hood, put the responsibility on “them”. We might not like these situations but at the same time, how many of us have stepped forward to do something to change these situations, change ourselves?

Many people get stuck in that place of blaming their parents for their behavior and life situations. Yet, when we become adults, we must, yes, look at those beginnings but then take charge and do the work to change ourselves and create the person we choose to be, as well as create the life we desire. To continue to blame our parents keeps us stuck in adolescence. It is the same for us as global citizens in this powerful time as we move into becoming galactic citizens. We need to accept responsibility and become accountable.

The world is now being flooded with love and light energy, the dark elite are being overcome and their strongholds are crumbling. But just as we celebrate the upcoming shift, we also will need to accept the responsibility for our lives and the earth. This requires us to grow up into the adult co-creators we are, and leave our teen rebellion behind.

I’ve spent much of my life, working to heal myself, help others and change those conditions that have affected the world. And yet, when I realize how much responsibility we will be stepping into, it is a little unnerving! What happens when all the blocks are removed, limitations gone? Am I ready to fully step into my power? Are you ready to step into yours?

I realized that it can feel scary and yet, I believe we WILL be guided, and remembering the wisdom, knowledge, talents and skills we’ve gained in other lifetime experiences and different dimensions. Yes, this will require and create change within our bodies and minds, relationships, life situations, and this can be overwhelming.

But I feel we will have great support. I know that part of my bigger mission has been and will be even more in the future to assist others through these changes. As long as we can stay grounded, remain in our hearts, finding places of peace, I feel we can move gracefully into this responsibility.

As my blog and website name states, empowerment and balance will be the tools of the day!!!!

Responsibility….the ability to respond with wisdom, grace and ease. It also includes accountability. We get to decide who we want to be and what kind of world we live in. This is exciting stuff!!!!

So please, breathe deep, anchor into this beautiful planet, drink up all the support from Gaia, Spirit and all the beings here to support us. And let me know if I can help you in any way! I’m holding out my hand…come join me. You have the keys to your new life!

Staying True In The Midst Of Other’s Perceptions!

Standard

movie projector

Throughout this almost year long journey I have been mostly staying in other people’s homes. Stepping into someone else’s home involves stepping into different house rules, perceptions, beliefs, needs, expectations and many of these are not overtly expressed. Some of the places I have stayed I have arranged through bartering my healing therapies, dog walking, cleaning, cooking, and organizing. among other skills. I’m not the best negotiator, as my nature is giving and generous, but my communication is clear, so I have done what I could to clearly and cleanly negotiate an arrangement that honored me as well as the other person. What I often found though, is that although I often give much more than is agreed upon, the other person would often change the agreement mid-stream, demanding more or even turning it around to make it appear that I hadn’t given enough?! This was always a shocking experience to me as I thought all had been clear in the beginning and as I stated, I always made sure I gave more than I had agreed upon.

I have always been a flexible, adaptable person, pretty easy going, and focused on being aware of others’ needs so as to keep things going smoothly. This journey though has led me into homes of hosts with almost OCD demands and house rules that even the most astute and dedicated house guest could not begin to adhere to or even decipher; homes of hosts living in their own words “just this side of disgusting” as far as cleanliness; homes of hosts that were controlling, raging alcoholics, noisy, quiet, outgoing, reclusive, vegetarians, meat eaters, and everything in between. Navigating all of these varied situations in addition to the different climates and cities to smaller towns has been quite challenging and stressful. And yet, I’m sure there has been a reason for this journey.

I know without a doubt that I have brought healing to so many people and areas because my recipients have acknowledged this, and I know that it has brought me healing and helped me stand in my power more and taught me to set better boundaries. Along with all this learning though, questions still remain.

I am presently staying with a warm, generous couple who love God, love Jesus, believe strongly in their beliefs and state that they don’t judge. And yet…..when I offer to do the healing work I have done since childhood, the work I was led to through my spiritual experiences with Jesus, my work is deemed unacceptable. When I have questioned why it was deemed acceptable that Jesus could do healing work and yet my work is deemed questionable, perhaps even coming from the dark, it is explained that ONLY Jesus could do healing work?! And yet, these people believe in prayer and manifestations they have received through this prayer, which is invoking God and Jesus. But healing work that is invoking Jesus and God’s energy that flows through all of us, is deemed darkness.

I feel so sad when I run into this belief system, as in my understanding, this very belief keeps people feeling separate from God, separate from that innate energy and light that Jesus spoke of so often and demonstrated. I try to not take it personally, and even have tried to point out to them how in-congruent it feels for them to state how much they like me and respect me and then deem my work misguided at the least and channeling darkness at the worst, but they just toss that off as untrue. I see that it is their closed minds and yes, hearts, that is keeping them from receiving all that I could be sharing with them, and I feel sad. As I know there are so many people in the world that live life this way, and it feels so small to me.

To be in the midst of these situations with others projecting their issues onto me, some people rejecting what I have to give or deeming it not enough, has certainly toughened me up in a way and helped me be more detached. It has also conversely helped me know my worth more. Some of the places I have stayed have been like sailing through the smoothest of waters and others have been like walking past walls of sand paper! I do trust though that each circumstance is leading me closer and closer to the deeper work that Jesus told me I was do when I was nine.

I thought I’d be doing it much sooner than this, and I’m sure I’ve been doing it somewhat throughout my life. However, there seems to have been a lot of preparation that was needed first and this journey has been that walk through the fire that was necessary.

I know that this part of the journey is almost over. I am grateful for all of it…and very much looking forward to landing in a soft spot of my own!

The movie “The Way”, pilgrimages and journeys!

Standard

I recently watched the movie “The Way” and loved it. I had read an article quite awhile ago interviewing Emilio Estevez, the writer, director and co-star in the movie, about the process and working with his Dad, Martin Sheen, the star of the movie. So I was already intrigued. I had also read a book by Shirley Maclaine about her journey on the El Camino de Santiago, and was inspired and fascinated by this journey. The movie focuses on Tom, played by Martin Sheen, as the stoic and traditional father, who finds out his lost son has been found dead, dying just as he had started this pilgrimage. Tom decides to journey the El Camino and spread his son’s ashes along the way. It is a rare emotional decision for him, and his impulsive decision brings him much more than he had envisioned when he started on the way. It is a movie of grief and loss, as well as discovery, friendship and transformation. It is beautiful in it’s unfolding as well as in the luscious scenery.

As I do with most movies, I looked at each character and inquired what I held in common with them and where we were different. Unlike the main character, I would not have been tight lipped like he was, as I am known for my open sharing, but I could relate to his anger, grief and unknowing as he wondered about his son’s whereabouts, felt the pain of their estrangement, and then his anger, grief and loss when his son was found dead. In truth, I am much more like his impetuous, leaping, restless son, Daniel; but you see, I, too, have lost a son, not to death, but to estrangement.Although, like Daniel, I am the one that has leaped into adventure throughout my life and recently on a now 11 month journey of faith.

I looked at the kind and talkative character, Joost, and saw my golden retriever self who assumes that everyone wants to talk to me, know me, be engaged. I looked at the angry, defensive, wounded character, Sara, and saw the me that I have been healing along this journey, as I attempt to make sense of the loss of past relationships and dreams. I looked at the character of Jack, the verbose writer, living out a life much smaller than he had dreamed of, and see how much I have limited myself for way too long.

In watching this movie I realized that I, too, have been on a pilgrimage, not spreading physical ashes of a cremated son, but certainly spreading metaphoric ashes of my past and the relationships in it, as I have revisited many of the towns and places where I have lived, traveled to, or hiked. It was that giving up hope and attachment to my past relationships that was the last step for me, letting go of those last ashes in the bottom of the bag, knowing that this is it, the end…and letting them go in the wind.

It is fitting that I am ending this journey in San Diego, CA. as this is where I spent so much time as a child and adult, vacationing with my family, and then later with my Mom and/or my son. And this is where I spread my Mother’s ashes in Nov. 1999, on my way back to Seattle, where I was living with my son, moving there in Oct. 1998 after leaving Colorado. And here I am finishing this journey in San Diego now, before heading home to Colorado, going full circle. Now, like Tom in the movie, I need to stand next to the ocean, reach down in my bag, and gather the last vestiges of my past relationships and life; gather my long held dreams of the future; and finally and firmly throw these ashes to the wind and the water, letting go and saying goodbye to what was, honoring it and making room for what will take it’s place.

I am grateful for the sweet memories I have of my life up until now. I am grateful for the experience of being a single Mom and managing to stay loving and attentive no matter what challenges I faced. I am grateful for the friends and support I’ve had along this pilgrimage. And now it is time for me to leave this funeral pyre and begin my new adventure, alone, yes, but now with room to let others into my heart, my restored and healed heart. Now it is time for me to go home and settle into my new launching pad for future adventures.

So I encourage you to watch “The Way” and enjoy your journey, wherever it takes you. Remember life is to be lived, not something you got stuck in, so live it with faith and enjoy it along the way.

Love, Katelon

Peace, what are you giving and receiving?

Standard

movie projector 2

Time for an update and repost of this article I wrote several years ago, originally around a winter solstice time. Sadly, it is still appropriate.

As you read this, the US is still mired in war in the Middle East and now considering another one, and the question still remains for me, Peace? What are you giving and receiving? It has long been a belief, and a point of inquiry of mine, that what goes on within us is a microcosm of the greater reality reflected out into the world. And so, along with activism, I continue to look within to discover, embrace and heal those places within myself that are at war. It is my intention, inside and out, to do what I can to embody, give and receive peace in the world. In the ancient text, The Essence Gospel of Peace, it states “ Peace is the key to all knowledge, all mystery, all life.”

25 years ago I was living in a small Northern California coastal town. My neighborhood reminded me of the powerful novel SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION, by Ken Kesey. As I’d take my daily walks through the fogged in neighborhood, I ‘d pass sign after sign impaled in the yards stating, “We support the timber industry”. The small communities lining the coast embodied the timber/environmental clash so vividly described in that novel.

Months before, I had been asked to be interviewed on a local women’s radio show. The topic I chose was “Inner Healing and how it relates to Global Healing”. At the time, I was working as a massage therapist in a chiropractor’s office. One of my clients was a young man who had moved out from the south to make peace buttons for a local company. Although his job and his political activism spoke of peace, the extreme tension I felt in his body spoke of an ongoing inner war. I began to observe this dichotomy in myself and other clients, along with the already divided community. The day the US declared war on Iraq ended up being the day of my interview.

As war broke out in that country, war broke out in my town as the local mayor and city council declared the town a draft free zone. Opponents stormed the town hall, an enormous American flag was erected upon the approach to town, and all the yard signs were replaced with new ones stating “We support America”…and…. we’re on the air, welcome Katelon to discuss “Inner Healing and how it relates to Global Healing.”

I felt like I was in the twilight zone and all the mayhem further underscored this study of mine. There I was witnessing war in the body of this young man, opposing views and near riots in our town hall, SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION in my neighborhood and bombs dropping across the seas as a TV reporter stood next to a board drawing little x’s and o’s like a football play to explain the loss of life many countries away.

Over the years I have continued to explore this theme as I work to release old limiting patterns of lack, illnesses, and aloneness in myself. Sometimes I am able to love what is here, or what I perceive to be lacking, embrace the lessons and provide the gift of peace to myself, as I open the space for healing to happen. Other times I am in the ring, working on my left hook, ready to punch out the offending lack of fruition, career struggle or another Saturday night spent alone. A few years ago this occasional fighting position was literally put in my face as I took a detour to work. I ended up driving past a 7th grade fistfight in the middle of the road. Because I haven’t seen a fist fight since my 7th grade year, I was left to ponder again where am I at war in my own being, what am I fighting? Peace? What am I giving and receiving? As I examine this wrestling with my psyche I am seeing it on the outside again, too, as my neighbors, fellow countrymen/women and world members draw the lines and continue wars.

One of the therapies I do is called, Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT). In this therapy, I work with a person’s high self to research and clear negative programs, conditioning, beliefs, etc. that are limiting the person and restricting the flow of good through their bodies, relationships and lives. This work is done using a pendulum, dowsing various charts and connecting with the person’s high self to research the soul’s records. Whatever needs to be cleared is then identified and with the assistance of the high self and spirit, it is cleared. The limiting energies are then replaced with positive ones, moving a person out of self-punishment and self-limitation. Relationships can be researched as well, clearing destructive patterns that can be limiting the relationship and the individuals. Christ referred to this high self as “the father within”. Hawaiian Huna refers to it as Aumakua or higher consciousness. What is seen so often in this work is how much people limit themselves through their thoughts and judgments brought forth from (depending upon your belief system), past lives, genetic codes, world energies, childhood experiences and the entire creative process in itself.

A few years ago, a man called to ask me to use SRT to “GET RID” of a woman he was in business with. He explained how this woman was attempting to take over his business and he wanted her gone. I explained that I’m not a hit man but that I could work with his high self and spirit to clear them and their relationship, allowing for a new resolution. The work succeeded and the woman called him, with positive news and wanted to get together to find a healthy resolution they could both be comfortable with. Instead of rejoicing in this turn of events, he was so attached to his anger that he chided me for not getting rid of her. I felt saddened by his response, yet I was led to look at what I was just wanting to get rid of in my life, rather than be willing to negotiate with, forgive, and create a space for something new to appear? I had to look at where was I limiting myself? I inquired again, “Peace? What am I giving and receiving?”

I watch in childlike awe each year as the days get shorter and shorter and darkness descends, leaving sunshine, that I so love, a memory. And yet, I attune to the surrender of the trees as they gently release their leaves, plants die and seeds are deposited deep in the soil to wait and rest until the light comes again. Most of the world religions celebrate this return of the light. I think of Mary, in the Christian tradition, as she gestated a child within, holding that immaculate concept for him as she faced many outer challenges. Certainly, she must have felt the urge to fight, the call to struggle or defend. I certainly did as I carried my son, and then went on to raise him alone through all the challenges we faced. Don’t we all, whether we are carrying a child, a dream or concept? And, yet, each of us can carry this immaculate concept for our children, our dreams and desires. Each of us can carry that seed of peace and continue to hold it in our hearts for the world and ourselves.

The days may be dark, the world may talk of war and torture and try to keep us focused on fear and our desires/dreams/challenges may threaten to pull us into an inner or outer war and yet there are methods and therapies that we can use to release this inner negativity and replace it with harmony. I do believe that we have the power within us to return to love, just as yearly the days grow longer and the light returns. I do feel that each step we take toward negotiation, dialogue, healing and bridge building within ourselves, our families, our communities, does reach out and effect global change. So, I encourage you to ask yourselves, “Peace? What are you giving and receiving?”

Letting Go, Releasing…isn’t always easy!

Standard

Angel wings, green river

This is a picture taken of the Green River, in Flaming Geyser park, near Black Diamond, WA. I love the angel wings made by the rocks. It is a good image to remember when you are in the process of letting go of a relationship, habit, belief, situation that you need to let go of and are struggling to let go.

Whether it is because I am a Leo astrologically, and loyal because of that; or part of my occasionally dysfunctional people pleasing ways; or just because I’m human, and we humans seem to cling to the past and to people and things we need to let go of, instead of trusting and moving forward to something better, I often will hold on to old relationships when they are toxic, and have long passed their expiration dates. It is especially hard for me when it is someone I am very close to, had some wonderful times with and still love. But as I progress further on my spiritual path, I’m learning that the more I honor myself, the more I learn to love and respect myself, there is no room in my world anymore for people that don’t treat me well, or don’t want me in their lives.

Often I had friends who consistently treated me badly, and I’d make excuses for them, attempt to stick up for myself…sometimes poorly and unskillfully, sometimes with grace, and still keep them in my life, accepting their excuses and the few good things they threw my way at times. I see now how this set me up to attract other similar relationships.

I’ve also seen how my tendency to assume full responsibility for everything in my life, led me to accept responsibility for what wasn’t even mine. As a child, I often got punished for things I was accused of in the neighborhood, things I hadn’t done and my Father would believe others over me. So I grew up believing that no matter what I did, it wasn’t good enough, nor was there any way to protect myself, as my parents surely weren’t standing up for me. This led to quite low self esteem. So others could treat me badly and I’d just go back for more, blaming myself for their behavior.

I’ve worked for years to heal this and regain my self esteem. This almost 10 month journey of mine has been providing the finishing touches on this. Staying with so many different people over the months, setting up agreements before moving in and occasionally having the hosts drop those agreements then blame me, and ask me to leave, when I was already doing more than agreed upon, giving more than agreed upon, has been a great training ground to finally end this unhealthy habit of mine and finally and fully claim self love.

I have a particularly close relationship I have grieved over for years, spent a bunch of money on contacting various healers and counselors to help me heal, doing rituals and my own healing and clearing work, going back and forth between acceptance and letting go and then, feeling like if I only did this or that, it would be a good relationship again and I finally got it! And got it BIG, that relationships take two people, that I’ve done all I can do, and to continue to play my dysfunctional game only keeps me from peace and from fulfilling my spiritual purpose. It also keeps me unavailable for other possible loving relationships that will be mutually supportive and loving.

I am learning that you tell yourself or someone else to let go, but until a certain point is reached, it isn’t possible to fully release. I do believe that meditations, rituals, various techniques are helpful, and I have several on my website http://www.empowerandbalance.com  But I believe it is just a point that you finally reach with grace, that allows you to trust enough, love yourself enough, to just let go. And when that moment arrives, the feeling is so clean, clear and sweet as there is now room for true love and peace to flood in and fill you up.

Know that there is much support all around and within you for assisting you in this release process. And after you let go, you will have room to bring into your life and heart what you truly desire, relationships and situations that truly honor and uplift you.

Love, katelon

Unleash Your Power

Standard

I didn’t watch the video but did read this blog, my feelings are that now is the time on the planet for us to finally own our power. I remember and believe in past lives and I feel that we’ve all done great good in other lifetimes and were tortured and killed for doing so, which has kept us afraid of doing our real work this time. We’ve also done harm in other lives and thus, again, have felt afraid of our power, afraid we’d use it for harm again.

In the bible, Jesus demonstrated power in his situation with the fig tree, cursing it and then it couldn’t bear fruit anymore. He told his disciples that they, too, had this power and could use it for harm or good.

I believe that this power is our God given ability to create, and the world is crying for all of us to accept this power, and direct it for good use in our lives and for the world. To deny this, not embrace it, is to turn away from the power of God within each one of us to create a better world.

The past several days I’ve been using techniques for clearing found in the recent Maureen Moss article I posted as well as another article, techniques for breaking old agreements and for letting go of old stories. Throughout our lifetimes we have these agreements we’ve made with life and others, and these often remain on an unconscious level, playing out in disharmony in our relationships, bodies and situations. The same is true of the stories we have told ourselves lifetime after lifetime, year after year. It is time to love these all free, break the old agreements, shift the old stories and emotions into new more supportive and uplifting ones.

There are many techniques out there to assist you in this process, and some on my website http://www.empowerandbalance.com, too. If I can help you in any way, with the various therapies I do professionally, please contact me and we can discuss how I can help you. It is time for all of us to create lives and bodies of wonder and joy!

Seriously Tripping Through Life

Once when I was a kid, I was riding in this old blue pick up truck with my mom’s former boyfriend, Chico.  From the beginning of his relationship with my mother, Chico took to me like I was his blood son.  Even after they were no longer together he would pick me up and take me out to his job sites and let me earn a little money.  So on this particular day we were working on a fence in this well-off neighborhood in VA Beach–an area where a truck like his would look out of place.  As we were driving back to the site, these teenagers pulled up beside us and started screaming and calling his truck a piece of junk.

Now, I loved Chico.  I still love Chico.  So when those boys screamed at him something ignited in me.  I could feel myself focusing my sights directly on…

Through The Void…….

Standard

Through the void

Here we are…disconnecting from much of what has held us…beliefs, habits, relationships, situations, towns, jobs…and into the void. It can be a scary space. Even if the old was limiting, frustrating, unhealthy, unhappy; it was known and that has comfort in it.

The future is uncertain, it isn’t created yet, and we wonder who we will be, what will be left of us after all this “stuff” has been stripped away. What are we without our armor? What are we without our masks? What are we without all those things that we have relied upon to support us, even though that support was shaky at best?

This is what we are in the process of discovering. We have left one world behind and now it is our job to create the new one, to strip off the veils and uncover the beauty that is within us. We are the creators of this new world. What would you choose for this new way of being? Let your imagination go beyond all the borders, what if’s, yeah buts and dream big. REALLY BIG!!!!

It truly is up to us to design this new world. Get out your crayons and color outside the lines 🙂

Spiritual Revolution!

Standard

Lenin Statute, May 2011 Seattle

I grew up an activist, always fighting for the underdog, working with Central American Refugees, seeing early on the lies that run our world. And my politics have always been way left of center. At one point I was dating a Marxist man. He was a very strong believer in armed revolution. Even though my views were closer to socialism at the time, I still argued that spiritual revolution was the way to transform this world, stating that just to have an armed revolution and overthrow one government for another, wasn’t the answer as it just led to another group running things. He didn’t talk to me for days, saying my politics stunk.

I still feel the same way and although I am certainly grateful for the uprisings around the world that have taken down horrible dictatorships, I do believe that we are in the midst of a spiritual revolution, with each person re-gaining their sovereignty, in the beginning stages of learning of their roles as co-creators for this beautiful planet. I believe that spiritual revolution is the way to true peace, cooperation and a world where everyone’s needs are met and we live in a sustainable environment with respect for each other and the planet.

Revolution is never easy, even spiritual revolution, as it means that within each of us, revolution takes place as we displace the limiting beliefs, the greed, the insecurities and fear that have governed us so far and replace it with our true power and love. But I do believe the work is worth it. So be gentle with yourself as you move into a more empowered place.

Creating a New Life By Changing Your Perspective!

Standard
Jan
      I’ve been thinking about perspective lately…what we focus on and how we focus on it.  In the picture above, you might focus on the tree in the foreground. You might notice the various colors, textures and designs in the bark.  You might even see a face in the designs. You might focus on the branches.  Or, you can focus on the bush in the background, framed between the two main branches of the foreground tree.  You could focus on the other bushes in the background, to the sides of the foreground tree.  You might focus on the snow.  You might dislike the snow and thus form opinions or feelings about the picture based on them.  You might love the snow and thus other thoughts and feelings might arise.  We all bring our preferences, past experiences and future dreams to any present experience, whether we are conscious of that happening…or not.

      In the media these days we are blasted with pictures and articles about conflicting political opinions, wars, the economy, celebrity news, violence, hunger, poverty.  And thus our senses, and our feelings can be pushed to feel fear, anger, judgment, envy, powerlessness.  But there is also other news out there that focuses on successes, people waking up to stand up for a better world.  It is our choice what to focus on and how or if to react to any of it.  And just like you can change your perspective as you look at the picture above, you have the power and choice to change your perspective about the experiences the news reports as well as the experiences in your own life.

     As a child, we might imagine there are bogeymen in the closet.  Then usually, a parent turns on the light in the room and perhaps in the closet, to point out that it is just filled with our clothes, maybe our toys and books, with no bogeyman present.  I feel that is what is happening in the world now.  We are shown violence, greed, and a few people holding the reins of power and attempting to rule others with their beliefs and actions.  But I truly believe that the light has been turned on, is flooding our planet, our bodies, our cells, thus anything that is dark or limiting in any way is becoming apparent. So this light exposes what has been hidden in the “closets” of our world and our lives.

     This leaves us with a choice to feel powerless, and in fear, or for us to instead, know the power and light we all carry and are connected to and we can take action to make a change instead.  I have watched myself recoil in disgust or horror at some reaction of mine or something or someone I have attracted into my life, bringing up a judgment about myself and/or the other.  Instead, I am learning to meet this reaction of mine with love, just looking at it as information about some limiting belief I have been holding onto, some thought of separation, and I can now choose to heal that limitation, remember that in truth we are all one, all in need of love and forgiveness.  This moves me back to a place of empowerment, creates a more peaceful environment within and around me.  This is a step forward for me and for humanity!

     I am loving this new place of more softness and compassion.  I feel this is the emotion and feeling that is going to help transform the world as well as myself.  I invite you to join me by changing your judgment to curiosity.  You can ask yourself questions such as “Why am I feeling this way?”, “Where does this thought/feeling come from?”,  “Is there another choice to make here?”,  “What leaves me feeling lighter and more empowered?” , “Can I see this another way?”  Sometimes the answer will come right away and sometimes it comes days later. But it will come.  And then you have a choice to choose peace, love, compassion, understanding, empowerment, or fear and powerlessness.  I prefer the openness and lightness that the choice of love and compassion brings me.  It doesn’t mean that you leave yourself feeling unsafe, or invite some person or situation into your life that isn’t healthy for you, but you can still have compassion and love for that person or situation. Then you are free to take enlightened actions. 

     Try it out and let me know how it goes!
