Synchronicity, Harmony, Joy ……… Pain?

As you know, Celeste, for those already within time and space, their lives are usually all about finding love and making money.
Yet not so long ago, while awaiting their first turn, breathing would have been enough.
Hey, Celeste, I vote for breathing, finding love, and making money, in that order.
So much air, so little time –

Synchronicity” is the first one of my  “8 Awesome Ways to Know If You’ve Opened Your Channel” to your Higher Self and my Higher Self (HS) has certainly been communicating with me this week. I’ve been licking my wounds over the lack of success of my launch of “How to Be A Conscious Evolutionary – Awakened Seeker’s Journey.”  Not only was it not successful, but the stress of the production and promotion of this product negatively impacted my relationships and my health.

It wasn’t until this past Wednesday when a flurry of synchronicities all came together did I notice my HS was trying to get my attention.  It began with a powerful and deep meditation Wednesday morning that was chock full of contrasts . . . .  that didn’t feel like contrasts.  That is, I was fully present to my emotional pain that felt very heavy while at the same time noticing lightness within me.  This turned into a definite energy field of darkness next to pure white; I listened to the loud noises surrounding me and to the total quietness inside of me;  I felt the moist cool air on my face and the spaciousness of infinity; I lost all sensation of my physical body from the waist down and observed a sharp pain in my back.  In every instance I was aware of the contrasts, yet they felt only like distinctions of experiencing the same thing, a place where “preferences” seemed like a mute point because it didn’t matter, it was all the same. Wow!

Later that afternoon I listened to the message by Steve Rother (below) that centers on stepping fully into this harmonious world, including the harmony and joy (!) of pain.  His message in words contained the essence of my morning experience.  And then Mike Dooley’s wonderful note from The Universe (above) put it all into perspective when I read it late Wednesday evening.

In my coaching practice I often help people feel “the perfection of their situation even when their intellect doesn’t get it.”  As a Conscious Evolutionary I practice the meme of “Crisis is an evolutionary driver that stimulates innovative and creative solutions.”  And in my spiritual practice I forgive people and situations using the meditation, “You owe me nothing.  I owe you every thing.”

No matter what the words are, when you can grow to experience pain

  • as joy
  • as an evolutionary course corrector
  • as the Universe synchronistically and lovingly supporting you
  • as an experience to deepen your sense of oneness with All That Is
  • then you won’t get stuck, you will always be evolving!


Practices to see the silver lining while experiencing emotional/mental pain:

  • In your journal, write down every potential ripple effect that your situation might stimulate including those inside of you and those on your environments around you now or in the future.  Dig deep!
  • Think outside the box and brainstorm new solutions to your situation if money (or relationships, location, etc) were not an issue.  Don’t stop until you’ve uncovered at least three (3) ideas or thoughts you’ve never even had before.
  • Center your energy with long slow deep breaths.  In your mind’s eye, see the person or situation that is causing you pain and look at it directly and say, “You owe me nothing.  I owe you everything.”  Notice the insights that move you forward. (See below for an audio experience of this.)
  • The Awakened Seeker’s Journey includes journaling exercises about how crises evolve your path and a recorded meditation about forgiveness that includes the phrase above.  I’m happy to gift you half off your purchase using the discount codepain.”

Focus on Appreciation

Now, this is what I’m talking about!  Last week I wrote about becoming aware of the thoughts you were thinking first thing in the morning.  I love both the excitement and focus on appreciation that Jessica exhibits in this video. When you learn to focus your thoughts, and even more importantly, shift your emotional state to a high vibration, then you set yourself up to create more of the things you want, less of the stuff you don’t want.

One of the exercises in my book, How To Channel Your Higher Self, revolves around using appreciation as a portal to communing with your Higher Self.  Most of the exercises in the book include an audio version that is available in the experiential online environment that comes free with the book.  Here’s my version of opening your day by accessing a state of appreciation.  It’s more in the meditative mode than Jessica’s version, but either way, you shift your inner state of being and set the tone for new possibilities to emerge for you in your day.

Opening to Appreciation

Integrative Action Steps for Shifting Your Energetic State:

  1. Notice the flow of your thoughts and/or feelings.  Are they moving you toward more of what you want or away?
  2. If needed, shift your inner energetic state by focusing on appreciation or your highest excitement.  Words (affirmations) alone don’t make the difference.  You must create an energetic match between your thoughts and your inner state of being.  Jessica definitely lines up her words and feelings!
  3. Notice the resulting flow of your thoughts and/or feelings.

Amazing Progress

I am so pleased with How To Channel Your Higher Self – it has been the perfect tool for me to connect deeply with more of my whole self! I have especially enjoyed the Emotional Pattern Release exercise, it is easy and effective, with permanent results!

Specifically, I have been using this exercise whenever emotionally uncomfortable sensations arise in me (even during emotionally uncomfortable situations!), and gave myself permission to focus, dissolve, and release them, whether I could name them or not!

I feel so much more confident and fearless!

Thank you Celeste!
