New Year’s Day Blessing for You and Our Planet

Donyvon, my hair stylist, raved about this movie, “I Am,” which I finally watched* over the Christmas holidays.  WOW!  It is a beautiful documentary of the scientific proof of our interconnectedness with everything and everyone on this planet.  Much more important than the science however, at least to me, was this movie’s ability to open your heart to how YOU can contribute to the betterment of our planet.  Your energy, your consciousness, your actions, make a difference, which is the very definition of being a conscious evolutionary.

The most fascinating demonstration of this in the film was an experiment of electrodes placed in some yogurt and attached to a meter that could read changes in the electromagnetic field in the yogurt.  The director of the movie, Tom Shadyac (director of Ace Ventura, Bruce Almighty), was encouraged to think about people or situations that would elicit a strong emotional response.  He was not hooked up to anything, yet, his emotions registered as significant changes in the electrical field of the yogurt.  This was a powerful demonstration that we ripple energy and affect everything around us; everything reads our energy!

So, with that in mind I am making a request of you for this New Year’s Day, January 1, 2014.  Around the world this day is traditionally focused on questions such as “how can I be a better person, have a better life, etc.,” creating a huge wave of collective desire (strong emotion!) for something new.  Will you join me, along with the 1200+ friends of Ken Graydon, and use this wave of collective emotion to amplify a healing for ourselves, and therefore for our world?

The following blessing is from Ken Graydon, based on his work with the Organ Regeneration Process which recognizes that you are a hologram for all.  Feel the energy embedded in this, change the words to fit your own spiritual understandings if you need to, and then read it aloud on Wednesday, January 1.

starsI am in spirit; I and the Creator are one.
My healing blesses all of creation.
My intention with this healing is to offer regeneration to this whole body to bring it to the mental, spiritual, emotional and physical standard that the Creator and I had planned for it to be at now.
I go to the high point of my soul where I may tap into the source of all healing, the place of healing peace, the fountain of joy and the river of abundance. I am wrapped in a cloak of power, which may only be used for good. My tongue is blessed that I may speak the words of power, but only when used with love.

I make every effort to expand my consciousness, understanding and spiritual awareness to be the best possible representative of the Creator’s teaching and healing intentions for people, animals, environment and the planet.

I believe in this healing. I accept and allow all the blessings into my life. I am filled with gratitude and peace.

And so it is.

 

May you experience a blessed, abundant, healthy and astonishingly connected love for our planet in 2014.

 

* I watched the movie on HuluPlus.  I read that it’s also available on Netflix and you can rent it on Amazon.

Be the Midwife & Gentle Humanity’s Birth

My heart is so open I just wept with the beauty of this clip from the 1982 move, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.  This wonderful image of E.T.’s heart, big, red and vibrating with love, became the culminating energetic symbol of our Conscious Evolutionary Circle this morning as we focused our attention, and intention, on gentling the Birth of our humanity in this transformational shift we are experiencing on our planet.

Our topic of discussion revolved around making conscious the collective unconscious resistance to the shift, then stepping fully into our powerful pioneer selves to transform this resistance into energetic pathways that support the Birth so that it proceeds more gently.  Wowie zowie, to put it that way really brings home the perspective that we, which includes you since you are reading this blog, are here to play BIG in this world!  Yet, every one of us walked away from our Circle experience feeling fully empowered to authentically step into our agency as a Conscious Evolutionary.

Here are the 3 primary tools we played with this morning to energize the field of “allowing” (vs. “resisting”) the Birth of a heart-centered humanity to emerge:

  • “Touch” one another from the depths of our open hearts (think E.T.).  Seek to live in our highest vibration possible, seeing the highest vibration of others even when they show up in their lowest vibration.  Connect to our heart energy often and allow our hearts to resonate with those around us in order to strengthen the morphic energy field of Love. 
  • Awaken to an even deeper understanding that our outer world is a reflection back to us of the unconscious resistance that can be found within each one of us as the hologram of the universe that we are.  To affect the outer world we must first shift our inner world, which then gets reflected back to us as a shift in our outer world.  Visualize an infinity sign.
  • Step courageously into our calling as a conscious wayshower, and boldly claim our strengths in order to give our gifts.  When we are clear about who we really are, we recognize our unique gifts are imperative for the world AND that we are a single facet of one consciousness. “Me” becomes “we,” seeking generative alliances with whom to co-create, satisfying a yearning for both resonance and differing perspectives.  This shift involves letting go of Egoic identities, limiting beliefs, and old paradigms.

 

Are you getting caught up in the chaotic energy that is the manifestation of the collective unconscious resistance,

or

are you midwifing and gentling our birth?

 

My wish is for you to step courageously into your gifts as a wayshower and join with others in gentling this Birth that is moving our humanity, ready or not.

 

Actions You Can Take to Help Gentle our Birth:

  • Get involved with Birth 2012, a global celebration on 12/22/12 recognizing our emergence into a new way of being founded in unity consciousness.  If you’re in Austin, create your own celebration to honor our Birth and post it on Birth 2012 Austin facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Birth2012Austin.
  • Become an Agent of Conscious Evolution (ACE) to gain skills, knowledge, and support for stepping boldly into your gifts for the shift.
  • Learn more about your inner landscape and skills for shifting your inner world so that your outer world is more to your liking.  A great (free) resource for this is the Consciousness Playground.
  • Get involved with a community of like-minded pioneers that will support you in living more authentically.  If you are in Austin, we would love to have you in our Conscious Evolutionary Circles.  Or, you can find a wide variety of personal growth, social responsibility, and spiritual exploration programs through the Shift Network.  They also sponsor a social media gateway called the Shift Movement where you can find/create community.

Clean Desk, Create Vacuum, Feel Feminine Power?

I have a personal training client that frequently stimulates me with interesting conversation while we move through her workout.  Last week we ended one workout talking about feeling drawn to creating more intimate female friendships and the shifts in feminine energy we’re experiencing.  Within a day or two of that conversation I received an email about a teleclass on “Feminine Power.”  Hmmm.

The next time this client was in she told me about spending a lot of time in the spring clearing out a particularly nasty weed from her grounds only to find that after our bouts of rain another weed has taken hold of the area.  She reminded me, “Nature abhors a vacuum.”

Then another email arrived with information about the full moon and the astrological implications.  This is a time to look at relationships (to things, people, projects, ways of being) whose structure is ready to change.

These ideas stirred around in me Monday evening as I pulled weeds in my own yard, listened to the audio recording of the Feminine Power teleclass and waited for the full moon to rise.  The teleclass is geared toward the “awakening woman” and discussed the “symptoms” that women are feeling as the energetics of the world shift from a masculine to a more feminine energy.  This isn’t the maternal/healing/nurturing energies associated with the feminine of the past, rather, a brand new, evolving energy that is being cultivated and intuitively co-created through the collective consciousness emerging in the now.

The part that most resonated with me was the image of feeling 10 months pregnant, yet unable to birth what is yearning to come forward because the specifics aren’t yet known.  “So,” says I while pulling weeds, “if Nature abhors a vacuum, then where in my life am I too full, holding on to something that no longer needs me? Where am I ready to change a relationship to something and create a vacuum that will then attract what is wanting to be birthed?”

Wednesday morning a client cancelled, then a workout got canceled and a call rescheduled and it was raining!  All combined to create the time to clean up my desk.  Wallah!  For two years I’ve had papers in various and sundry piles all relating to the writing, production and marketing of my book.  That’s the thing that no longer needs me.  I’m ready to shift my relationship to this book!  With each filing, tossing and clearing away of the pieces of that project I could feel energy returning and a vacuum forming.

My desk is now clearer and more organized than it has been in two years.  I signed up for the teleclass with the intention it midwifes this overdue pregnancy.  And the wonderful thing about doing this consciously, is I have the power to say yea or nay to what comes forward to fill the vacuum; no new weeds, please.

Before I completely move on, just letting you know the bonuses attached to my book expire at the end of August.  If you want to maximize your purchase, receive some great e-books, audio recordings, workbooks and e-courses, best make your purchase now.

Integrative Action Steps If You’re Ready to Create a Vacuum for Attraction:

  • Are you sensing a restlessness or yearning in your body/mind, but don’t have the slightest idea why?
  • What person, job, project, environment, or other relationship are you holding on to that no longer serves you?
  • What real or symbolic action can you take that allows you to let go and create the vacuum?
  • Utilize your “feelers” and notice the synchronicities that now show up.  Feel whether you want to welcome the new things, or not, into your life.  You have a choice.

Living Authentically Amid Cultural Memes

(n) meme – a cultural unit (an idea or value or pattern of behavior) that is passed from one person to another by non-genetic means (as by imitation)) “memes are the cultural counterpart of genes”

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what it means to live authentically.  What is truly authentic for the deepest part of me? What are conditioned beliefs through our culture (memes) that are so much a part of my life that I don’t even recognize an issue?

So nice to know that wherever my thoughts go, life then supplies learning opportunities, answers and even more questions to produce clarity.  That’s known as synchronicity and one of my favorite aspects of connecting consciously with life.

Our conditioned beliefs are not easy to spot because they are so engrained, so automatic.  And a meme is so much a part of the cultural pattern that we often don’t even see them as “beliefs.” (Abraham defines beliefs as thoughts we keep thinking over and over again.)  And, as is true for any thought we keep thinking, there is an attraction pattern built around that thought which pulls to us all sorts of evidence to substantiate that belief.   Once, however, that belief/thought becomes conscious, then it is possible to make a decision about it.  We can consciously choose whether we want to continue to hold that belief (and therefore, the attraction of things to support it), or change the thought/belief to something else and create a new attraction pattern.

As I listened to a Consciousness Playground recording recently, I became aware of a thought pattern that no longer serves me.  It was brought to my attention just by noticing the first thoughts I typically had as I awoke.  What I discovered was, “What do I ‘have’ to do today?”  As I felt for the underlying, more subtle energy, I discovered, “What do I ‘have’ to do (accomplish, produce) that will make me feel like a worthwhile human being?” And even under that was a circular pattern that whatever I did accomplish never quite measured up to fully being “worthwhile.” Wow, never knew that was there, and no wonder I fall into a recurring pattern of setting up “too much to do!”

In speaking to others, it seems that “What do I have to accomplish today?” is a common thought upon waking, though the underlying energies might be slightly different.  I heard fear, or protection, themes, as in “what must I accomplish so that something bad doesn’t happen to me or my loved ones?”  “Shame” and “guilt” also showed up.

So, what does understanding of this meme mean for me in choosing to live authentically? My biggest learning opportunity revolves around how to promote my products and services in ways that feel authentic.  At this point in my life “authentic” means maintaining a deep sense of connection to inner peace, freedom and joy. There is no doubt of worthiness in inner peace. There are no have-to’s in freedom. There is no overwhelm in joy.

My now practice is to think new thoughts upon waking.  To bask in peacefulness as I go to sleep so that this energy can be present when I awake.  To feel for the freedom of potentiality in each new morning, not for what can be accomplished in that day, but for the experiences I’m drawn to, I attract.  To commit (once again!) to taking action from a place of excitement that is founded in joy.

Integrative Action Steps for You to Live More Authentically:

  1. Name 3 primary feelings you associate with connecting to your deep, authentic self
  2. What % of your day are you experiencing these feelings?
  3. What 1 belief could you change that would affect this %?  (Try looking at the thought that is most prevalent when you awake!)
  4. What new thought(s) do you want to choose?

What’s Your Life Theme? I am a Resource Connector

What themes show up in the various roles that you play?  In 1984 I used the What Color is Your Parachute? approach to changing careers.  Though I can’t locate the maps I made then, I recall that “Teacher,” and “Counselor/Social Worker” were still present as they were when I took vocational tests in High School.  (Actually, I have those high school tests in a file and so funny to see that “YWCA Staff Member” and “Religious Activities” also scored high!  I strayed a bit, but not too far, eh?)

Certainly being a Life Coach falls well within these themes, but I’ve also come to recognize a sub-theme to this service side of my personality.  It’s to be a resource provider, a facilitator, a connector between a person’s search and her/his inner knowing.  It’s what I like most about being a Life Coach.  The very foundation of coaching is to inspire clients to connect deeply with their inner wisdom, not to tell them what to do.

It’s no wonder that one of my biggest intents for this website is to provide resources for new thought/new energy seekers.  What is clear to me, however, is that it is not enough for me to create the books, audios, blog posts and emails.  These don’t fully satisfy my desire to be with people as the connector I am.  I like to be hands-on, personal, and intimate, fully and in-the-moment, sensing the beingness of others.  I like playing with a community of folks experimenting with expanding themselves to new possibilities, new potentials.

Just as I coach my clients to create environments that support their needs, I am reaching out to invite people to come play with me in a more personal way in order to meet my inner need to be a connector.

Resourcing the Riches of Your Higher Self LIVE teleclass is aimed at people who are new to this whole idea of feeling and sensing energy.  In ways that feel comfortable and non-threatening, this six session teleseries introduces you to a variety of openings to your capacity to recognize and interpret the messages you are receiving all the time from the expansive part of yourself.  You get the unique opportunity to meet other people who are ready to play and practice new ways of experiencing the world differently.  To celebrate the internet launch of my book, this June class is on sale for 50% off through May 31.

The Coached Collectives are collaborative, co-creative calls totally focused on surfacing the communications coming through the groups’ awareness.  My vision for this community of seekers is to explore the absolute exhilaration of sharing “out loud” the fun, intriguing, synchronous, edgy, interesting, and even mundane messages that gain clarity through the energetics of group dynamics.  There’s a Preview Call coming up on Wednesday, June 2, 11:00 am CT.  Come play!

  • Are you intrigued by the idea of channeling?
  • Do you like to play with like-minded friends?
  • Do you want to know more about sensing energy?
  • Is being an adventurer, explorer, seeker, student, or joiner one of your themes?

Consider this your personal invitation to live your theme with me.

“Something More” Flows from Avatar Creations!

Don’t you love it when you allow yourself to stay open to the flow of energy and the outcome is so much bigger, brighter than what you could have imagined?  Last weekend I took all sorts of “goodies” to my friend, Carolyn’s, creative inspiration party to decorate paper doll avatars.  Thanks to my sister, Jill, who mentioned that “Avatars can really be anything, whatever you feel represents you like an eagle or a butterfly or even a flower,” and all manner of creativity broke loose to surface the most beautiful “avatars.”

Here’s a short clip of some of the creative ways people expressed who they are through the visual arts.

In a world of “super-connectivity,” this avatar-making project was about connecting up with another friend, Soleira’s cosmicious birthday party happening in the UK.  Her theme was “I See You – A Brilliant World Revealed.”  Check out her site for the global super-connected way she celebrated.

Carolyn keeps hearing back from guests who are loving seeing their “avatars” hanging on the fridge, over their desk, or near their bed.  “People are so surprised by what cool things they came up with.”  And I am too!  Both with what I saw others create, and with the one that flowed out of me.

I had no idea what it meant when I put it together, but as I continue to look at it every day, my HS keeps feeding me more and more insight about it (wild streak, heart centered, financial abundance).

Resourcing the Riches of Your Higher Self teleclass begins Tuesday, March 23.  My avatar reminds me daily of how opening to communication with your Higher Self can fill you with a sense of the “something more” that is you.  Reconnect with your “something more” using the tools I’ll share, as you also build your skills for recognizing and interpreting communication from your HS.   It is limited to 10 people so that you get lots of personal attention.  Look for my offer on FaceBook for some 2-for-1 discounts.  Only 3 of these available!

Sort of like swimming with dolphins

A fundamental theory in the world of quantum physics, Michael Talbot’s “holographic universe” states in part, “at a deeper level of reality, all things in the universe are infinitely interconnected.”  This is the very basis of my Coached Collectives community, our infinite interconnectedness with one another that can be experienced, observed, embraced and even transformed.

In groups, I like to play with the possibility that the others in the group represent some aspect of me experiencing life through them.  Maybe a group member embodies a quality I admire and I get to feel myself reflecting that quality in his/her life.   Or there might be an opportunity to sense what it’s like to have accomplished a skill that in my own life I have no time to pursue.  In the “unified field” it is me possessing these qualities and skills.

It’s really a very unique sensation, this interconnectedness.  You learn to become aware of yourself as your unique essence combining with, and interconnected to, the essence of the collective group.  In my imagination, I think this must feel like how dolphins experience each other when they are swimming together in a pod.  A sense of oneness, community, and feeling completely understood and accepted.

And, it’s actually pretty easy to do, because, after all, we’re interconnected.  That’s the point.  The group learns together how to “swim” synchronously, supporting each other in learning easy ways to feel, sense, and work with this collective energy.

Come experience this “dolphin energy” for yourself!  Join me Wednesday, January 27, at 11:00 am CT (noon ET, 9:00 am PT) for a PREVIEW call and get your own experience of interconnectedness.  I promise the call will be fun, enlivening, and not at all scary!

Alignment rather than Resolution

It’s easy to get caught up in the collective consciousness of this time of year that is focused on looking back on what didn’t work in the last year and standing in hope that the coming year will be different.  However, mostly what happens is the conditioned mind begins it’s litany of the many ways you have failed to live up to the expectations that you think you “should be” doing and makes resolutions from this distorted perception, doomed to failure because of lack of alignment with your Higher Self.

I like to focus instead on “what’s wanting to shift” and allow my Higher Self to present something to me.  I keep my eyes, ears, and all of my senses open to receiving this message.

Last year, through a meditation led by Tobias, I dropped doubt like it was an old trench coat that I had been slogging around in for too long.  Doubt was heavy and cumbersome, yet I was holding on to it believing I “needed” its usefulness. Doubt and I had been friends for all of my life, and I had tried many different tools, both intellectual and energetic, for eliminating it.  Last year this aspect of me was ready to let go of its grip and when I dropped this cloak of doubt, it was truly gone.  Freedom surfaced and began to flow.  It’s the freedom to dance and play mentally, emotionally and physically.  It’s the freedom to play with infinite possibility, yet having nothing to prove, justify, clarify, or even manifest in 3D.  I have a feeling that whatever shows up for me this year will continue to intensify this feeling of freedom.

The question to pose to your Higher Self is, “What’s wanting/ready to shift?”  Look, listen and feel for the variety of ways your Higher Self communicates with you.  The answer might come through what you read, hear, experience, imagine, sense, etc. When you feel ready, then you can constructively use the collective energy of change to swoosh your shift through. Let me know what happens for you.  I’ll let you know my experience too.
