Intentional Spirit: AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME

Temple10.3
Can you imagine what it was like for the inventor of the first safety pin—how challenging it must have been to explain its benefits during a time when nobody ever envisioned one, let alone used one?


Or imagine the concept of a sticky note being explained by its creator before it was created. We could never conceive of a world today without a safety pin or a Post It™ note.

All creations and inventions begin as an idea, a concept, a thought in someone’s mind. Many times, this concept is dismissed as “impossible” in the minds of people who cannot envision it. However, in the mind of the
inventor it is feasible and real.

Guided

IMG_3700-1200x900

Every moment of our lives is guided by an Intelligence that we may only partially recognize while we are in physical form. It has been called variously Infinite Consciousness, Soul Awareness, or more simply, God/Goddess. We are a part of that vast beingness, and before we move from formlessness to form (birth), we choose an overview for our lives that opens us to expansion and evolving. Our physical lives interweave with one another within a vast tapestry of intention and meaning woven by that Intelligence, which we are one with. There is no experience or event, however small or large, that is not connected to that cosmic interweaving.

5 signs you're entering 5D consciousness

biskind10.1

When you’re living in 5D consciousness, you align with your soul’s higher purpose to fulfill your destiny.

It’s just that simple.

As your consciousness leaves 3D and rapidly ascends towards the fifth dimension, it can feel like you’re soaring through the clouds, riding a wave of euphoria so intense, you may never reach earth again.

New information is pouring into your awareness and you become mindful of even the smallest signals from life that will guide you into new states of joy, peace, and fulfillment. 

Abundance flows freely and suddenly everything around you appears clearer and more vibrant. 

Higher Awareness and Intuition become your primary guidance system.

The Rise of the Divine Feminine

Photo by Gillian Hunter

Our world is experiencing a profound energetic shift. The Divine Feminine is rising and changing the very fabric of life, affecting the way we work, make money, relate to one another, and more. 

The old, primarily masculine way of operating in the world is no longer working. Years ago, hard work used to get us what we wanted. Nowadays, the harder we push, the less things flow.

Secrets to Uplifting Your Spirit Everyday

san9.29
Spirituality. Wellness. Self-care. Meditation.
We hear a lot of buzz on these topics these days.
But what and why? What’s the point?
“Why are so many people into meditation and spirituality these days anyway?"

Over the years, I have come to understand that there are two categories of people. Some are deliberately seeking wellness and self-care through meditation and/or spirituality and their thirst leads them to the path.

Still others like me, just happen to bump into someone or something which leads them on the path to embracing meditation and spirituality.

I was 23 years old, when I started along my path to finding my own spiritual self and realized that this was what was missing in my life.

It’s like those moments when you’re busy, so busy that you forget to hydrate, and suddenly someone hands you a glass of cold water, and you realize, “Oh yeah! This is what I need.”

Why “Spiritualize?” What’s “Spiritualizing” anyway?

“Spiritualizing” is the act of uplifting the spirit. But what are spirits?

Spiritual Grounding Techniques!

collette9.28

Have you ever experienced a time in your life when it seemed like no matter what happened around you, you had a sense of peace, calm, and contentment that couldn’t be shaken?

This feeling of solidity and an emotional well-being that isn’t rocked by the events of life or the world is what it means to experience spiritual groundedness. 

Being spiritually grounded doesn’t mean you never experience a heavy or difficult emotion. It doesn’t mean things are always easy or that you’re not affected by the world around you. Instead, it means that whatever is happening outside of yourself, you know how to access a place of calm, peaceful serenity and groundedness that isn’t contingent on outside circumstances. 

When you’re spiritually grounded, it’s like being firmly rooted with both feet on the earth. You have a sense of clarity and resilience. An inner knowing that no matter what life throws your way, you can find joy and peace within yourself. 

Why do you need to be spiritually grounded?

Are You Willing to Live Consciously... Especially when times are challenging?

stevef9.25

It seems that for many in our community, a sense of temporary reprieve has been replaced with yet another round of stressful and challenging situations, including human rights, physical/emotional/mental health, financial, and otherwise. Granted, there are people all over the world who are dealing with these and more every day, and we are holding them in our hearts and prayers.

It is not difficult for any of us to feel into what are often called lower frequencies. These would include worry, anger, fear, thoughts of revenge, and perhaps even disappointment that life just won’t smooth out. 

“Here we go again” is a sentiment I keep hearing from friends, family, co-workers, and even people I make casual conversation with when out in the world.

We may have the best of intentions to stay in high vibration and not allow ourselves to be gripped by these lower frequencies, but once we take a step in that direction, the slope downward is slippery and takes supreme commitment to climb back up.

Be Willing To Receive What You Deserve To Have

PD9.24

Is it time to go beyond your own resistance to allow and receive what you are asking for. Freedom is the ability to live in peace and to love your life. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love your life? Not just some parts of your life, but every area of your life. If it’s less than 5 or 6, it’s because you are not willing to receive what you deserve to have. 

You deserve to be in a respectful relationship. You deserve to be in a loving relationship with intimacy. You deserve to work in a place where you are valued, cherished and paid. You deserve to be at peace in your life no matter what you are going through, whatever that is. Why?, because that’s spirituality.

You Are Here

IMG_3608-1200x900

Do you recall the maps in public places that help you find your way? There is usually a circle or an X with the notation: “You are here.” X marks the spot where you are in the “real world.” From there, you navigate the path to your destination. In life, without maps to guide us from birth to death, our course is less certain. We tend to wander at first, gradually gaining momentum and direction, then perhaps pausing at some point to contemplate the big picture. Our minds often wish we had something as simple as a map to direct us on the perfect life journey. We sometimes question where we are going and if we have made a wrong turn, a fatal error in judgment. What we don’t realize is that there are no errors.

Intentional Spirit: DO IT NOW

temple9.18
Many people stop just before the diet really works or right before they finish a project that could lead them to a new sense of accomplishment.
It is too easy at times to walk away and “get by” with just enough at the end of the day rather than asking ourselves, “Did I give this day, this moment, this relationship, this client all I have? Was I totally present in the moment?” I realized this a number of years ago during counseling sessions. I noticed clients talked about every subject in the world and only addressed the real issue during the last five minutes of our time together. What is the tendency within us to delay or put off what we really need to address or confront within ourselves? Life is energy, inertia, and movement. When we delay our story, our story is delayed. When we wait to see what happens, we begin to live in what can happen rather than what is happening.

Where Do Ethics And Spirituality Both Thrive?

polly9.18

Spiritual and metaphysical practitioners and shops have become increasingly easy to find both online and brick and mortar stores.  We can hire a psychic, a coach, buy crystals and essential oils very easily now.  Part of me loves this, but part of me wonders if this is a place where ethics and spirituality can thrive together.

Years ago, I became certified as a life coach.  The certification was not required, but I felt it carried some reference to credibility.  There was nothing riveting offered in the class.  Most of the material seemed like common sense, and my background in nursing certainly helped.  The class was an eye opener; many people with a huge variety of skills sets and backgrounds had the desire to help others.

I also became certified as an Angel reader.  The certification is a little cringy, but again, I felt it showed some intention of training.  What I now offer clients is from years of experience and my ability to connect with the other side.  This ultimately is what makes psychics and mediums skillful.

There is no regulation on psychics, mediums, energy workers, or coaches.   I’m not saying that there should be formal guidance, but I do believe ethics and talent should play a significant role in the longevity and success of all practitioners.

Okay, Bring on the Crisis

PD9.17

Somehow in this world of crisis, all people want to talk about is crisis. We are all forever transformed as a result of the crisis we have gone through. I am sharing this with you because nobody would intentionally welcome a crisis in their lives. Nobody would intentionally say “Okay, bring on the crisis.” 

But I have to tell you there is such a gift available to all of us right now, through the pandemic, with everything we are going through in the world . . . it’s such a blessing. In the welcoming of a crisis, it puts you in the redefinition of yourself.

I like who I am now, especially after how life reduced me to my knees. I like this version of me. As I get older, I appreciate this version of being Panache Desai more and more. And there is an amazing freedom that comes along with having navigated my way through a crisis. Things aren’t such a big deal anymore. Having lived through a hurricane, and a child who almost died, and helping my wife with her health issues, I realize we are so blessed to have gone through these things.

Living with the Unknown

IMG_3361-1200x900

Nothing is definitively known, ever. That’s why Native Americans, in their timeless wisdom, have called life the “Great Mystery.” No matter what scientists do to try to break the code—send vehicles to Mars, create life in a test tube, photograph black holes in space—the puzzle of human existence and life and death is never really solved. Any “knowledge” we come to as a species is a shifting illusion that changes with the years and with those who are “knowing.” That’s the realm of science and the mind—and belief systems.

Silencing The Monkey Mind!

cbaronreid9.14

In today’s world, we are exposed to more stimulation and mental input than our systems are designed to handle. Between social media and the constant news stream of suffering and turmoil, it can feel confusing to know where to place our attention. It’s especially difficult for people who want to help but end up feeling helpless. 

Reminders of the pandemic, environmental emergencies, politics, and devastating world events pile on to our generally full and busy lives –  it’s no wonder so many of us are struggling with anxiety and overwhelm! Fight – Flight – Freeze seems to be on all the time and it’s accompanied by an autopilot stream of chattering thoughts and ideas limited to searching for potential threats. 

None of this is going away any time soon, so we need to learn strategies that will help us become more resilient and able to manage our inner lives without bypassing what is going on in the world. One way to help manage the inner anxiety loop is to learn how to experience a sense of inner peace, groundedness, and calm. You can learn how to reclaim your mental spaciousness by quieting the “monkey mind!” 

But in a world that not only overstimulates us, but that often encourages us to rely primarily on our minds over our other senses and ways of knowing, it can often feel impossible to reach a state of true inner calm and peacefulness – especially when challenges are beckoning for solutions. That said, we all need to take breaks to put our oxygen masks on in order to manage at the very least. 

In order to relieve the stress of your daily life by keeping a calm mind, you can learn practices that help you come back to your center and release your unwanted thoughts when they feel like they’re running the show. 

Why is it important to have a calm mind?

Intentional Spirit: GOOD INTENTIONS, BEING INTENTIONAL, & RESOLUTIONS

templeh9.12
It is a very common practice at the beginning of each year for individuals to create a To Do list to be accomplished within the course of that particular year.


And what is most interesting is at the time, these lists are well-intentioned. I have arrived at a place in my own life where I realize there is a big difference between intentions and being intentional. Why is it that so many people write down a list and yet give up on these intentions in only a few weeks?

To me, intentions are based on the externals of life—the unexpected, the change which wasn’t planned, the weather, or a change in finances or relationships. You can hear a person clearly state, “Well, I meant well. However, now I must wait until ‘this situation’ clears up before I move forward.” People who create such an intention are stopped and stuck in the illusion of waiting. An intentional person—as opposed to someone who just creates a list of intentions—draws energetically from an internal and not an external source. An intentionally spirited person draws from an internal wellspring and listens to inner guidance with the ability to focus on the commitment made and prioritize the demands involved in completing a task or promise made to oneself.

Life Is Responding To What’s Happening

pdblog9.8

As you evolve, you stop valuing all the stuff that doesn’t matter anymore and you start valuing the stuff that does. It’s how you feel everyday that matters. Do you want to keep revisiting your past thinking that revisiting your past is going to make a difference? It isn’t. 

How do you want to enjoy and make the best of your time? For me, time is a depreciating asset. It’s the only thing that has any value. I don’t have any ambition, motivation or drive and I’m so happy. Primarily, because I’m not afraid anymore.

Somebody who is extraordinarily driven is extraordinarily scared, insecure, and incomplete. They still think there is something outside of them that they have to accomplish or they have to prove something. Sadly, no matter how much this person accumulates or accomplishes, they will never be enough for them because they don’t know who they are or why they are here.

Go Slow In Order To Go Fast

kute9.8

There is a power when you dare to go slow.



Most often when you reflect on your life, you will realize that life has a way of working itself out. Often though, when we don't get what we want, we start pushing harder. Realize that in that moment, from our current level of consciousness, we're not always able to see the infinite grace and possibilities of how life is unfolding. Listen to this episode and learn how being still, going slow and listening to your internal guidance will move you to even greater heights and possibilities.

Harness the Subconscious Mind to Create a Desired Reality

reneee9.7.21
We very often hear a voice telling us that life is a miracle. We keep wondering in our own minds how is that statement true, is it actually a reality we need to embrace.  

I would like to say that our every thought is a miracle maker. It is our own subconscious mind that is the creator of our reality. The action is actually happening in our thoughts and the reaction is in our response,  which is actually a response to our subconscious mind. So it is important to think wisely,  and think in terms of the reality we desire to manifest. As our mind will through our subconscious mind create a reality, closest to the mental pattern we are feeding deep within the subconscious mind. 


KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
The most important factor in life is knowing what you want. Our subconscious mind has a storage which is full of desires and wants according to our conscious mind perception, imagination and feelings. It is the conviction of the conscious mind  which is transferred onto the subconscious self.  This converts the idea into a reality. 

USE IMAGINATION
Use your imagination as a perceived reality, visualize a state of freedom. Try finding ways of solving a problem, and impose that way on your subconscious. The subconscious will respond to the thought. 

CHILDLIKE FAITH
Put away your problem solving skills. Just have a belief that whatever you desire will happen. Believe in miracles. Simple thought attracts instant and pure reaction. 

DISCIPLINED IMAGINATION
As it is said in the bible "Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive" To believe is to accept something as true. Imagination is the most powerful faculty you are gifted with, you are absolutely whatsoever you imagine yourself to be. 

INNER GUIDANCE
This is an inner sense of touch. You know when it is a hunch. Trust these vibes, they will prove to you that they are correct. 

BE SURE OF YOURSELF
Doubts and hesitations weaken prayers.  Statements such as "I hope it works" or "I wish I get this" will set a negative tone. We attract vibrations on the frequency of our thoughts, a doubting thought creates a lower frequency. 

LIVE IN COMPLETE CONVICTION
Pass the idea you want created to your subconscious mind from the conscious mind. Give yourself over to its power, then relax with the idea. Through the action and conviction, you will actually impregnate your subconscious mind. This helps kinetic energy to take over and bring it to realization in concrete form. 

Be careful of your thoughts. When desire and imagination  are in conflict, then imagination wins over and produces negative results for you. If you suggest to your mind "I will use my will power to overcome failure," you are actually reinforcing the negative idea. Thinking continuously over the thought could dominate the subconscious, then when you try to alter it in your conscious, it overpowers  the conscious mind, the negative persists and you are not allowed by your mind, to create the desired reality. 

HARMONIOUS UNION
Your prayers are answered when there is no conflict. We cannot imagine opposition. Believe only in the power of creation, you can create what you want by focusing on it completely. By using mental will power you pre-suppose opposition and therefore create it. 

Imagine the reality of fulfilled desire and feel the thrill of accomplishment. 

SLEEPTIME VALUE
This is the best time to penetrate your thoughts into mental space. There is heightened awareness while sleeping and negative thoughts and imagery neutralize your desire. 
When you neutralize and imagine the thrill of the accomplishment,  the subconscious brings the realization of desire. 
Use affirmations to harness the subconscious mind to create a desired reality.

Intentional Spirit: A DREAM IS MEANT TO BE REALIZED

Temple9.5
Dreams and visions are a beautiful part of this life. The emerging self is always seeking to accept the now moment, while at the same time welcoming the mystery around the corner.


I realized a few years ago the statement “I am waiting on my dreams to come true” was not a true metaphysical and proactive statement for me. This statement put the outcome on something or someone else outside of my own power and control. I have since learned to declare, “My dreams are waiting for me to come true.”

I am claiming my role as co-creator in realizing my dreams by deepening my own self-awareness and development in what I want to become in this future dream.

As I hold the space for my dreams to become realized, I continue to grow my consciousness, so when the dream appears I will be ready. Harry Potter was told, “Do not keep your focus on the realization of your dream, otherwise, you will miss your life.”
