Moving From the Hole into the Whole

holetowholeness
You yourself are the eternal energy which appears as the universe. 
You didn’t come into this world, 
you came out of it like a wave from an ocean.
--Alan Watts


How and when did we lose our intimacy to our beloved Creator, to one another, to all living things but most importantly to ourselves?

How did we evolve by not evolving to forget that we are born out of this earth and therefore all of creation is truly one?

Where do we begin to die, live and be reborn to remember this quest of life we are so fortunate to be part of? 

Perhaps when we look at the word intimacy, this is the first place where we either could use more insight, more respect or maybe some deeper reverence. The word intimacy in the Temple Hayes dictionary which translates into--IN-TO-ME-SEE-- is a simplistic way to identify with our relationship with life. While so many people in the world are longing to grow up, longing to understand life’s meaning, perhaps aching to release addictions, not really wanting to die while they are living, feeling drained and disconnected, there is always going to be common truths no matter what anyone ever tells you--we all long to be loved, valued and respected.

The Science of Belief … In a Nutshell

belief

Many people disregard the role of “belief” in shaping our lives as being some sort of “New Age” malarkey, meaningless nonsense. They emphasize the science of epigenetics that clearly states that environment controls genetics, which in turn, determines the character of our lives.

Consider this story: Mutt and Jeff are two twenty-something year-old friends, who grew up together in side-by-side houses. Walking down a sidewalk, all of a sudden, a harmless garter snake slithers out of the grass and crosses the sidewalk in front of the two friends. Jeff sees the snake and is consciously excited by the beautiful animal that crossed his path. Next to him, Mutt on observing the same snake, goes into a state of fear and releases a burst of stress hormones. Fortunately, Mutt’s heart is in good shape, if it had been compromised, the sight of the snake could have even caused him to have a heart attack.

Both Mutt and Jeff are in the exact same environment and see the same stimulus, the snake. However, their responses are radically different. Conventional insights describe epigenetics as the science of how “environment” controls behavior and genetic activity. Based on how the tissue culture environment controlled the behavior of my cultured stem cells in experiments are carried out over 50 years ago, I recognize this to be true. The big question is, “Why did these friends display such significantly different behaviors in the exact same environment?”

Outgrowing Your Created Self

outgrowing.created.self

If you are currently grieving the loss of who you used to be, you need to know that you are not that person any more. When you can’t continue to have the same old conversations that you used to have, and you can’t continue to hang out with people that you really don’t resonate with, and you can’t continue to perpetuate situations or scenarios in your life that aren’t loving, you are outgrowing the created self. 

When you outgrow your created self and your identities, you begin to discover who you are beyond it all. There is a grieving process that happens as you begin to break free from the identity and the confines of the limited self. In this phase of transitioning away from the created self, it’s not that it needs to be healed, changed, fixed or improved, it’s just that you have outgrown it.

Trusting Your Intuition: THE SIXTH ENERGY!

gratitude-meditation

Intuition — our sixth energy — is a natural part of all of us — although many of us were raised to repress these “gut hits” in favor of logic and reason! 

But when you don’t honor and trust your gut, your creative energy can be misdirected and you will make choices that you may regret later. Instead of working on behalf of your imagination and vision, it shows you evidence of stories full of mistakes,threats and detours, contracting instead of expanding your view of what is possible. The key is to balance this energy so you can see infinite potential, picking up on ideas, vibes, and messages that might be otherwise lost. 

Intuition: Your Inner GPS System

How To Experience Renewal

purple-tulips-in-the-garden

Renewal holds an immediate appeal. In marketing, it is the magic word motivating buyers of vitamins, diets, skin creams, and exercise machines.  But in reality, your existence depends on every cell in your body knowing with perfect precision how to renew itself. There are hardly any cells in your body today that were there when you were born, and certain types of cells (skin, stomach lining, and red blood corpuscles) renew themselves very quickly, in a matter of weeks.

These well-known medical facts point to a hidden secret, for it isn’t physical renewal that holds the key. Imagine a house where the bricks fly in and out of the walls, yet the building is always standing. Its blueprint remains intact even as physical objects constantly change. Your body’s blueprint remains intact thanks to the invisible intelligence contained in every cell.

Instead of looking to DNA for the source of this intelligence—DNA is just another piece of the physical picture—the secret lies with how your body uses its intelligence. You can renew yourself by consciously using the same principles that keep your body in a natural state of renewal.

Learn to Go Quiet

quiet-the-mind

We can learn to go quiet in the middle of what would ordinarily be a psychological riot going on within us. The frantic search for any answer – being suddenly caught up in a stream of thoughts and feelings trying to figure out what to do with some frustration – turning to those frantic answers, looking for them, is like turning on a fan and hoping to straighten out the papers on your desk.

We mustn’t be afraid to Go Quiet in those moments. In much the same way as we look out and see something beautiful, we can look interiorly and see that inside of us there is a scramble going on for some kind of security, and to know in that moment that it is not who we really are that’s afraid of what’s going on.

Here’s something that’s stunning. I remember the first time I heard it and what it did to me, and how my mind actually went quiet when I heard it. Listen to this idea.

Internal Weather

IMG_2493-1200x900

What if the weather outside your window is actually a reflection of the weather conditions inside you? What if your perceptional framework for viewing life shapes everything, including how you see physical conditions such as rain, snow, clouds, and sunshine that appear to be outside you? What if nothing is quite as it seems to be to the mind? What if the world is as you are?

Ever since I was a small child, I have carried within me an at-times-overwhelming grief about the nature of life, death, and eternity. The “human condition” terrified me; infinity terrified me. Late at night, I described my fear to my mother as “the world goes on forever and ever.” She comforted me and tried to help me learn to distract myself with happier thoughts. But the core unease never really disappeared. In college, I found infinity hiding inside my astronomy and philosophy textbooks. Fear of death and whatever came after was always hovering in the back of my consciousness. In my 30s, I turned to a spiritual quest to try to resolve it. That was the beginning of a shift in my perception.

The Meaning of Resurrection Especially in These Times

easter
First you must realize you are asleep, then you wake up, then you die so you may be born. You cannot be born until you die and you cannot die until you wake up.
  -  
Jungian psychology


There are traditions across the world which celebrate Easter and the joy of Christ being risen. Storytelling is one of the most ancient natural medicines we have for the healing of our hearts and our soul. The Easter story is so powerful yet it deepens who we are in our humanity when we allow the story to be personal for ourselves. How can we allow the Christ consciousness to be born within us? 

During these unpredictable and uncertain times we are living in, we are all called to rise up. We have a profound, once in a lifetime moment to seize this window of a universal time out to quiet the noise in our minds and allow a greater connection of God to be experienced in our lives.

Rest in Center

restincenter

Are you all over the place?

The Practice:
Rest in center.

Why?

Gravity and entropy are powerful processes in the natural world. Gravity draws things together, toward a center, while entropy scatters them into disorder. In much the same way, in our own lives, some things bring us to center, while others disturb and disperse us.

In terms of centering, be aware of your whole body as you take a long slow breath, or think of something you’re glad about. You’ll probably feel more at home in yourself, more drawn into your own core rather than feeling like Garfield the cartoon cat, spreadeagled up against a pane of glass.

In terms of feeling scattered, notice what it’s like to do multi-tasking, the mind drawn in several directions at once. Or what it’s like to open your email in-box and see twenty or more new ones calling to you. Walking down the street or through a mall, see how your attention moves out to various objects of desire: this attractive person, that shiny car, this pretty sweater, that cool new cell phone, and so on: for a few seconds at a time if not longer, you’re dispersed out and away from your calm, clear, autonomous center. And if you have any tendencies toward over-eating, -drinking, -sexing, -shopping, -etc., this dispersal gets more extreme.

You Are an Answer, Not a Problem

lightheart

We need to talk. 

I know that running around, having people buy into your limitations, or even you buying into your limitations has been your way of fitting in. Why? Because everyone around you is suffering and this is how you find a way to belong.  

I see you beyond these limitations and I see you as love. Who you really are is light beyond description, the most beautiful golden sensitizing light you’ve ever seen, emanating out of all that you are in every direction. What you represent on this planet is a unique possibility and potential that only you can fulfill. 

You are at a crossroads of either continuing to pretend that you are limited, that you are a problem, and, either you’re going to apologize for your presence on this planet, or you are going to finally allow today to be the day to accept who you are, accept what dwells within you and set yourself free.

Why Do You Feel So Drained?

lifeforce-energy

One of my favorite sayings is “Imagine yourself as a being of energy and light—because in reality…you are!” We’re in fact energetic sentient beings and we often forget just how precious and important this vital energy is to our body as well as our Soul.

This energy, this life force is Spirit that fuels all life. Spirit is the spark or the portion of the Divine Source that’s in all of us and every living thing. It has a consciousness of its own. This spirit force is known as “Chi” (prana in Sanskrit).

Here’s a brief summary of Chi:

  • Your Chi carries your thoughts, belief and emotions while mixing with the energy around you.
  • You radiate Chi all around you, sending out your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.
  • You can change your Chi internally by activities such as meditation, stretching or breathing.

Sometimes, energetic cords emanate from you and become attached to certain worries and even people that you think about excessively. When you spend too much time mulling over something that’s bothering you or a person who has hurt you—the thicker the cord becomes.

Power of Faith

faith

People often ask me about the power of faith. How can I have faith in the midst of such uncertainty?

I read a story recently which describes what human faith is. Human faith is when you go to someone that you don't know and you tell them about a problem that you have, and they write a prescription that you can't read, and you take it to a pharmacist whom you've never met, and they make a compound. They hand it to you and you put it in your body with all the trust in the world. Yes, human faith is a very interesting dynamic. The question is what do we put our faith in? And, don’t we owe it to ourselves to explore beyond human faith to work with spiritual faith using natural laws?

The Authentic Version of You

PD-BLog_SS

Right now, we are in the midst of the biggest breakthrough: A shift into presence, into residence. When we experience an expanded state, or a greater vibrational frequency, we are not experiencing anything but our natural state of being.

The longer I am alive, the more I begin to see with absolute clarity that the answer to every question or perceived problem you are experiencing in your life, is Oneness. 

The more you actually allow yourself to remember your natural state of being, the more your life just works. It breaks down to this very simple fundamental level: if there is currently anything going on in physical level with you in your life, rest in the awareness of your breath throughout the day and live in the acceptance of your humanity. Don’t fix it, don’t heal it, don’t change it, don’t improve it. Just simply accept it.

Five things that Indicate You are Having a Spiritual Transformation

Spiritual Transformation

I am happily in the logistical stages of planning a transformative spiritual retreat.  Lots of sweet unplanned miracles will happen every day.  The guests will show up, share their magic; and each of us will experience a cascade of self-love and transformation.  Every person attending is experiencing a significant personal and spiritual transformation.

Changing your awareness and raising your vibrational frequency is much easier than many believe. You need almost nothing for it.  It can happen in a flash, all of a sudden, your world is different.

Regardless of what stage of enlightenment you are enjoying, you continue to evolve. Every modification brings more joy and love!

What are five things that indicate you are experiencing a significant spiritual transformation?

Some major part of your inner and outer world has changed.  Often this occurs when we step out of a cycle or pattern.  An example of this might be a person having a change in one of their major relationships.  This shift allows new possibilities into their thinking.  It also brings some type of healing that is needed after a cycle or pattern is broken.

Your Subconscious Mind Defines You

beautiful-mother-looking-at-a-leaf-her-son-is-holding-on-a-sunny-day-picture-id1194910110
Mankind's greatest discovery has been the power of the subconscious mind. Anyone who can harness this power is capable of creating the life he wants. 
 
We need to realize that the human mind has the capacity to solve all problems, heal the body and the mind. It can take you in a world beyond your wildest dreams. 

THINK UNLIMITED
The first step in creating your reality is to think beyond a boundary. Allow the mind to flow into a realm where it can be in its own world. Your world is your truth and your own potential reality.
 
LAW OF BELIEF
When the individual's mind responds to its own mental picture or thought inside of him, he then creates his own reality. We can easily say that, as a person thinks, feels and believes, so is the condition of his mind , body and circumstances. What you are doing will help you to reach a state of reality.

Embrace Your Unique Identity In The Sacred Collective: The Third Energy!

unique-identity

There was a time when I was so disconnected from who I was at my core, so out of balance in my third energy, that I had to be spiritually bankrupt before I could finally discover my identity and worthiness. 

For most of my life, and for many reasons I did not understand until much later in life, I was raised to deny my authentic self. As a result I was a chameleon, shifting according to the environment I was in and what I thought those around me expected from me.

The instruction to hide my true identity was hammered into me. My mom always used to tell me, “Never talk about the family. Never talk about yourself.” I had to look and behave a certain way to fit into her idea of what was acceptable— she even picked my clothes! I wasn’t allowed to wear blue jeans — and this was the 70s when EVERYONE was wearing jeans. And my straight hair, well she made me curl it before I left the house to look more like her, conservative and not reflective of my taste or nature. You can imagine how her attempts to make me fit in actually made me stand out like a pigeon in a yard of peacocks.

Inherited Beliefs Can Take Control of Your Life

At the time, I didn’t understand that my mother was dealing with her own self-identity issues and she was doing her best to protect me. She was trying to keep me safe in the only way she knew how.

Your Soul Knows Best

IMG_1964-1200x900

Sometimes it seems as if life is random, crazy, a mistake of cosmic proportions. It isn’t. There is intent and purpose woven into the fabric of the universe. And your soul knows this. Your soul chose this lifetime for its own evolution, for humanity’s evolution. We humans are on a collective journey through diverse Earth experiences to integrate polarities and find our way back to balance, peace, and harmony. The soul is our guide.

The challenge for the soul-as-human is to reach peaceful harmony within a physical form with its complex emotions, thoughts, and anatomical circuitry. At times it can seem overwhelming. However, if you remind yourself that your soul chose the scenarios and experiences of your lifetime for its own growth and expansion, then perhaps you can come to acceptance and even gratitude. It’s not necessarily something that will make sense to the mind, but your heart naturally allows life to flow through it. If you remain centered in your heart, life will feel more whole and less fragmented.

Namaste

namaste

“The God within me meets and recognizes the God within you” is the basic meaning of the word namaste.

Though we all seek different paths and adapt to our own unique beliefs, we are all made of the same energy and essence of God. Our life force as humans is the same. We have discovered among indigenous people of the world, that though they lived in separate countries and did not have the means to communicate, they shared similar rituals.We have the immense ability to connect with the human heart beyond language and geographical borders.

Setting Spiritual Boundaries: Learning To Flow Like Water With Your Second Energy!

spirit-bound

This year, we’re being called to take a more active role in the Collective — to break down what separates us and move forward to a new reality, one that is more loving, equitable, and just for all. 

One point of confusion is the idea of being part of the larger whole of humanity, at the same time we respect and maintain our individual identities. That gives rise to questions like:

Archangel Zadkiel

angel-wings

Let’s talk about Archangel Zadkiel today. He’s not one of the most common archangels. He’s one that a lot of people are unaware of, which is why he came into my space today. So, my intuition tells me that means, for all of us, we’ve got a little forgiveness work to do!

Archangel Zadkiel is the angel of forgiveness. He also helps us with mercy and benevolence.

Benevolence is kindness.

Forgiveness … that can be many types … of course, we’ve got forgiveness of others; forgiveness of our past; forgiveness of decisions; forgiveness of other people and what they’ve done or not done.

Then we’ve got forgiveness of ourselves; forgiveness of our choices; forgiveness of maybe sometimes just our way of seeing things.

So Zadkiel can help you with that. You can invite Archangel Zadkiel’s energy in to support you in forgiveness. Now, the way that I look at forgiveness is forgiveness to me is giving the energy back – not from a place of anger – but if you’re carrying energy from an old circumstance or situation –  blame, hatred, negative energy with someone, whatever – giving that energy back, releasing the energy and not holding it any longer. Giving it back to the universe, giving it back to the person – so that they can transmute it themselves.

I think that is a much better way to move through life than it is to carry energy from life experiences, choices, circumstances that have happened in your life and have you continue to just stew on it or use it as an excuse for not moving forward in your life.
