So many of us are awakening to our divine gifts and unique purpose on this earth. As we consciously connect to our deeper soul aspects and the guiding force of our intuition, we are made aware of many levels of expansiveness in every area of our lives. We have clear dreams, and the connection to our inner guidance is made stronger as we listen to the subtle, loving voice of the heart.
We have more acceptance of ourselves, our quirks, and our bodies. Our culture has a strong paradigm of control which unconsciously sends us messages that our bodies are imperfect, especially for women. As we connect to the truth of who we are, this self-criticism melts away, and we begin to express gratitude for this earthly form and all of the ways it supports us in this journey.
In order to establish a clear connection to your Cosmic Self, meditation is a great tool. As we become more aware in our waking lives, we also become more aware in dream-time, and are able to have lucid dreams more frequently. Take time each day to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, having a sacred moment to feel your heart, and breathe deeply into your chest and down into your abdomen. These yogic breaths rejuvenate the body and instantly allow you to tune into your emotions. Your Cosmic Self also comes forward as you follow your passions and highest excitement. This wisdom wants to be grounded in a concrete way, whether it is through dance, art, or music.
When you connect to your Cosmic Self, you learn about acceptance of self and others. Whenever you judge yourself or another, you are in a limited state, bound by fear and control. As we open up to this heart-centered truth that we are imperfectly perfect, we can love ourselves as we are now. We can love others completely without wanting to change them in some way. This is divine grace.
The warmth of sunshine on bare skin. Flowers bloom one by one. Bright skies invite us to linger a little longer outdoors. This cycle of rebirth gently awakens us from the cozy slumber of our winter retreat. Attuning to these cycles, we are called to action, bringing our loving intention to every moment of the day. What shall we create for the months and years ahead? How are we building upon our foundations in order to create in harmony with the Divine?
This cycle is about opening our hearts up to greater levels of joy, abundance, and sharing. Your intuition is always speaking to you. Will you get still enough to listen? Discover the tools that help you get back in touch with your heart. High-vibe music, dance, journaling, vision boards, and spending time in nature assist me to tune in. Take time to express gratitude for all the love in your life, recognizing the interconnectedness of all things.
Your soul~family is waiting for you, and they recognize you the more you shine your light. Bless every person you meet. Don’t be afraid to smile, make eye contact, and establish authentic connections with others. Beam out positive vibes to every person you cross paths with. Others feel the purity of your love, transcending space and time. Others appreciate your sensitivity as you awaken to your Divine gifts and are called to share them.
In your meditation, send intentions of love, harmony, and healing to the waters of Gaia, as well as the air, plants, and all beings who call her home. Ground into the core of Mother Earth, beaming light from your heart to hers. Believe in your innate power to heal and transform. Remember, as you heal yourself, you heal the Universe, gracefully bringing all into harmony and balance.
She is of the sea, a visitor to this world. Her aura resonates with the vibration of water – nurturing love, receptivity, innocence. In this moment, mesmerized by the silvery glow of the moon and stars, she is keenly aware of her connection to nature and the dark depths of the ocean. Her presence, like that of nature, is inherently healing and invigorating. To be near her is to feel as if one is lying on a tropical beach, bathed in the sunshine, salty water and starlight on a blue-green planet.
She loves deeply yet without attachment. Love does not force, nor control. Love simply allows. Part of her is always connected to another realm. She is of the sea, a visitor to this world.
All is possible as we move into a dynamic period of rapid expansion. We are so supported and loved always. With this inner knowing and experience of peace, we move through the world with compassion, gratitude, and joy. Life is a surreal dream, life is art. We choose what we want, and we accept what we think we deserve. We are meant to move from the awareness of our own Divinity.
Our thoughts are the blueprints by which our reality is created, so now more than ever, we watch those thoughts to determine if they are in alignment with the life we want to live. Success and abundance will never come externally until we make the inner shift, knowing we deserve to live a miraculous life filled with inspiring art, vibrant food, fulfilling relationships and careers, and creative channels for self-expression.
Choose a consciousness upgrade Now. Clean up your thoughts and beliefs about what you think is possible. In what ways do you sabotage your own desires? And how can you more fully and lovingly align with your Soul’s path?
Your heart knows the way.
The element of water in nature is life-giving, replenishing, and invigorating. It is soothing, cooling, and magnetic. Think of all the life contained within the ocean, and you will get a glimpse of unconditional love that is completely giving in every moment. The vibration of water is completely receptive, effortlessly transforming itself in a myriad of ways. It is healing and nurturing, responding to whatever is needed in the present.
Like water, we are constantly flowing energy in, through, and around us. When energy gets stagnant, it creates a blockage on the physical, mental, emotional, or etheric level that needs to be released. Self-love is an ongoing journey rather than a quick, one-time-fix. Healing on all levels is created by consciously raising our vibration, thus becoming an energetic match to what we want to experience. As limiting beliefs, fears, and patterns fall away, we are invited to live from a more heart-centered place in which we recognize the love, approval, and abundance we seek is always within.
“My love is effective under all conditions of life, for I am part of the mysterious power of the sea.”
The highest vibration of Neptune is the ultimate Muse. Spirituality, art, music, dance, film, devotion, and hope. Neptune represents the ocean, our emotions, dreams, and the collective unconscious. It is yoga, union with the Divine, enlightenment, compassion, and empathy. Walking in beauty, yet embracing the dark, mysterious, and mystical aspects of reality. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, romantic and personal love. Neptune represents Divine, transcendent Love. Mermaids embody this vibration of innocent Love that is everywhere, in every moment. They spontaneously and effortlessly feel another’s emotions, pain, deepest dreams and desires as if they are their own. They possess the vitality and magnetism of the water element that is inherently receptive and healing.
“Mermaids possess the love, innocence, and empathy of the water element that is missing from the human conscience. Without it, humans feel half dead. And so they take risks that threaten their own existence. They need constant excitement and external stimulation to cover up that numbness they feel inside. They are unable to appreciate and protect with nurturing love the wonder and beauty of life that is around us. Obsessed with acquiring knowledge, power, and technology, they are unable to change themselves, only the outer world.”
– William Mistele, from Four Days with a Mermaid
There’s something different about Kauai, the Garden Isle. It’s the northern-most Hawaiian island that is not overdeveloped or very corporatized. There is a law that no building may be higher than a coconut tree, and therefore no high-rise buildings or resorts. There are many stunning beaches, like Secret Beach above, and the most coastline of beaches of all the Hawaiian islands. Before I even landed on Kauai, I could feel her nurturing presence beckoning me to explore, to swim in her waters, and tread lightly on her shores.
Many healers are drawn here. The island is brimming with lush tropical plants, colorful flowers, and warm crystal blue-green waters. The stunning waterfalls and rainbows evoke enchantment and magic, as well as the majestic cliffs of the mountains. There is something special in the air, the way the warm breeze caresses your skin, in the way the sun illuminates and transforms into blazing golden sunsets. Here the goddess is revered for her abundant, rampant beauty. She also commands respect, yielding the mysterious power to create, destroy and transform.
Creativity and sensual power can be unlocked through free movement and dance, enlivening the body and opening energetic channels on all levels. Moving freely embodies the element of water, ever flowing, never stagnant. To grow stagnant is to become blocked. Your creative power and inner wisdom require an open, clear channel in order to flow. Spending time near bodies of water will remind you of life’s changing quality. Nothing stays the same for long. Part of our lesson is learning to flow rather than fighting the current, which depletes our power and effectiveness.
I invite you to embody the flowing, receptive element of water by tuning into your body, allowing it to move naturally in a way that feels sensual and juicy. Turn on your favorite music, jam out or go see some live music. Listen to the beat, allowing it to wash over you, feeling the physical sensations in your body. Turn off the ego-mind that seeks to judge and compare, simply allowing it to take a backseat to the moment. Settling into the heart and body, dancing will activate your root and sacral chakras, grounding you and unlocking your inner creative power.
Move in whatever ways feel natural for you! I love to swim, hike, practice yoga, or hula-hoop! Notice if parts of your body feel heavy or blocked, inviting energy to that area through gentle movement. Ecstatic dance and free movement are an amazing tools for awakening goddesses who are coming into their power and leaving behind cultural paradigms that have restricted the expression of our sensuality and Divine feminine power. Dancing moves stagnant energy by increasing circulation and oxygenating the entire body. Leave behind any self-consciousness or judgement as you honor your beautiful curves. Your body is a temple and a vessel of the Divine. Treat it was the love and care it desires, simply tune in!
Aloha and blessings from Kauai ~
While on the magical island of Maui, I took a Reiki II course which further opened my capacity to heal myself and others. It is an initiation which signifies commitment to my unfolding journey and desire to assist others in opening up to their own healing capacity. When I received the energetic codes that open one to Reiki II, I felt an emotional release within my physical heart, later moving into the center of the chest, the heart chakra, to be integrated. It was a beautiful experience to let go of the stagnant energy I was holding on to, opening to greater and greater levels of light.
With my certification, I am now able to send Reiki at a distance. As a humble channel, I am the conduit for this intelligent, harmonizing life-force energy. Everybody experiences it differently. I experience Reiki as a soft, warm, serene feeling that is like being enveloped in a comforting embrace. It is peaceful, flowing wherever it is most needed, working on the subtle layers of the energetic body, as well as the mental, emotional, and physical aspects.
I invite you to experience the harmonization and activation that Reiki has to offer. By filling out the form below, you will receive a free distance Reiki healing session if you book by October 31, 2014. You can also set an intention for healing. It may be a relationship or a situation in any area of your life.
Sending you lots of love and aloha from Hawaii.
