Self-Love 101: Surrender With Grace

Change. We are all undergoing massive amounts of change right now and much of it feels out of our control. And therein lies the issue, so many of us only feel safe and secure when we feel in control of our world. However, there is often something bigger and unseen working behind our little worlds we think create our safety.

Have you ever worked tirelessly at making something happen that you believe will be the best thing for you? You believe it will bring you the most happiness. Eventually you feel exhausted and shot down by it continuously not happening the way you want. That’s when you decide to “give up” or surrender. Surrender can also be a conscious choice. You can easily decide to “give up” or stop trying to make things happen, with grace.

It’s ok to feel defeated when you first arrive at “give up.” It’s totally normal. But then, it’s important to release that into surrender and trust. Staying in the defeated and disappointed mindset can lead to anger and resentment, further fueling your fight to make something happen the way you want it to.

Surrender opens you up to options you may not have even imagined. You say YES to other things that may bring you even more satisfaction or even deeper, more impactful lessons you could not have learned for your maturity and personal growth otherwise. They may not be exactly what you planned or wanted, but they increase the richness of your life in ways you could not have known without letting go of the control.

Releasing the need to have all the answers right this very minute is key to finding a more centered sense of peace. Of course it feels uncomfortable as we navigate the waves of the new that sometimes come crashing down on us unexpectedly. And yes, some of this can create a trauma effect on our psyches. But this is a time that our souls are asking us to dig deeper into our often unknown well of safety, security, and well-being that resides within.

We’re being asked to trust ourselves more deeply than all the outside people and structures that we have come to trust instead, the places many didn’t dare question before. We are beginning to see through the facade and into the belly of the truth of their attempts to keep control.

We’re being asked to step forward fearlessly into our own creative powers. Each one of our ideas is valid and we no longer need to be stifled and forced to learn fake facts. Each one of us has the power to both live healthy and wealthy lives and give our children a brand new entrance into the wonders of this world and what real education feels like.

If you truly surrender into this next phase that is preceded by the current chaos, what is it that your heart has to say to you?

Self-Love 101: Five Ways to Cultivate Self-Worth

Powerful message for today: You don’t need to convince anyone of your worth. You only need to convince yourself.

Photo by Sharmaine Monticalbo on Pexels.com

Once you’re convinced of your own self-worth, the defensiveness will dissolve. You’ll stop arguing with others in your head who “did you wrong.” You’ll stop attracting those who want to convince you of your unworthiness and into their ideals. Instead, you’ll start aligning with those who are also solid within themselves and who want to focus on the energetic potential of life. Thus creating positive energy out of every situation.

Once you’re convinced of your own self-worth, you’ll be able to forgive with greater ease. Thus providing yourself with the ability to maintain space for more love and joy on a longer-lasting basis. Your self-esteem will rise, freeing up space for positive energy to have a better chance to stick around longer and to return to quickly after triggers and difficult emotions. Negative energy/thoughts stemming from a long-cultivated false belief of being worthless or unlovable is heavy energy that can get in the way of moving forward and pursuing your dreams. It can also create dis-ease on multidimensional levels.

Once you’re convinced of your own self-worth, you’ll no longer feel like an outcast or the one who doesn’t fit in because you’ll be comfortable with who you are in a totally heart-soul-embodied way. You’ll stop needing the approval of any person, group, or community outside yourself. You’ll be filled with your own love, approval, and security within and you’ll start feeling the exhilaration of creating your world from a place of purity and joy.

Five Ways to Cultivate Self-Worth:

#1: Self-worth comes from being able to honor yourself and your life, all the things you judge as good or bad, all the decisions you made, all the mistakes you feel you made, all your regrets, loves, choices, behaviors. And then taking a stand and proclaiming your right to have a rich and full life! All of it makes up who you are! Now you have the freedom to improve any area of your life you want, but only for the purpose of aligning with the integrity that will improve how you feel about yourself and your actions, not for any other reason.

See my blog post on Three Ways to Empower Yourself and Raise Your Vibration: click here

#2: Self-worth comes from abandoning the stories other people have created about you or for you or that you have created for yourself. It’s about grabbing hold of the horns of that bucking bronco of endless thoughts, analyzing, and the ferris wheel of ruminations going on seemingly without your permission in your head and saying, STOP! I will no longer be swayed by your power!

#3: It’s about applying 100% compassion to whatever arises within you; whatever feelings, emotions, reactions, thoughts or false beliefs that want to overrun you and sabotage whatever project you’re working on, and offering it all love. Talk to yourself like you would your best friends when they are hurting. Give yourself time and space. As much of both that you need.

See my blog post on Step 1 Toward Self-Love: What Self-Love Really Is: click here

Advertisements

#4: Self-worth is about celebrating your boundaries. It’s about freeing yourself from the codependence of pleasing others or saving others from pain. Ask for time. Ask for space. Say No, that doesn’t feel right.

#5: Self-worth develops as you begin to realign your total being with your own truths, no matter how different they may be from others. It’s about owning your power to carve a new path, to slash through beliefs based upon lies, and machete your way through the jungles of endless information clogging up the direct pipeline to your highest self, to thriving.

Nothing is more important or powerful than being connected to your whole self.

Bless you on your journey to your inner strength,

Today’s Intuitive Barometer: The Death of The Death-Rebirth And Samsara Cycle

Photo by Aaron Ulsh on Pexels.com

There’s a deadness in the air today. It’s as if the motors have been shut off, the propulsion forward has ended, and now there’s nothingness. To a part of us, it can feel like we are dying, or perhaps like we’re already dead, leaving us with the false illusion that there is no hope for the future.

For those of us who live in the present after years and years of clearing old and heavy baggage, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, eternally, multidimensionally, we are only able to feel the present, as if it is everything. We feel it fully, encompassed in totality by it. We feel its edges, its nuances, its weight, its pressure, its color. We can feel its potential and its darkness.

There’s a level of done-ness. There’s no more need to try to clear more baggage. There’s a need to rest in exactly-as-you-are-ness; to claim your steadiness in this unknown-ness.

Today, there is a nowhere-ness. There is an imminent death arriving at our doorstep. For some that will be actual death around them. For others it will be death trying to speak to them and relay messages of healing and love through the veils. And for others it will be the death of a way of being, existing, living. Their layers of previous personalities and manners of responding to the illusion of the 3D world will be laid to rest, with or without consent.

For those of us who no longer deny the inner world of feeling and sensing, it’s best for us to go inward; to sit in quiet meditative states or even to sleep. Pick your best method of shutting off the external world, be it in nature or in quiet music. Trying to create momentum or forcing your way to answers will only lead to disappointment and frustration.

There are parts of you who are going to fight like hell to get you moving, to convince you that you must be productive or you’re going to create more problems around you. They are going to be scratching at your inner walls to try to get out. So for some, they’ll need an outlet, like vigorous exercise, which seems contradictory.

It’s because this is also a time of extreme polarities and duality. Where we may be deeply entrenched in a deathing process, there is also an uptick of new energy. This creative energy surging at the same time as death is occurring is seeking to find a balance within your being. They are different sides of the same tsunami coin.

This is a fantastic time to open up to your creative side, to do the kind of art or music project that touches your soul. This is a time where you can touch and feel and embrace your soul. Your soul has greater access to your world and you are more open to being able to translate its essence into the 3D. Sometimes you will create through the tears. Sometimes pure access to the soul is disguised as grief because we have been separated from it for so long, it feels good to come home. And sometimes it’s so beautiful it can only be expressed through tears. Once again, grief/joy being sides of the same heart coin.

Advertisements

At times it can feel as though there is only a tiny row boat managing the choppy waves of an entire ocean of grief and you are unsure of where it is you are. You’ve been fed the story of “the little lifeboat” over and over and you’re sick of trying to “save yourself” by trying to get to that lifeboat. Perhaps you’re done with that story and now you’ve taken pride in being that incredibly powerful and occasionally damaging sea of emotion. Maybe you’re at the bottom of the abyss feeling overwhelmed. And yet, today, you are none of them and you are all of them.

There is a part of you in an air bubble at the bottom of that ocean, sitting in lotus position, not choosing “to be” any of them. And this feels no longer like a human thing. It is outside the human thing.

It is silence. It is holding space for all of the stories while learning to completely detach from them and let them go.

It comes to my attention that this is aligned with the Samsara cycle, explained briefly here by Wikipedia:

Saṃsāra (Sanskrit, Pali; also samsara) in Buddhism is the beginningless cycle of repeated birth, mundane existence and dying again.[1] Samsara is considered to be dukkha, unsatisfactory and painful,[2] perpetuated by desire and avidya (ignorance), and the resulting karma.[3][4][5]

Rebirths occur in six realms of existence, namely three good realms (heavenly, demi-god, human) and three evil realms (animal, ghosts, hellish).[note 1] Samsara ends if a person attains nirvana,[note 2] the “blowing out” of the desires and the gaining of true insight into impermanence and non-self reality

It can feel lonely. It might feel absolutely unbearable. And yet you remain in the holding space.

Fighting this would be futile. The only thing you can do with any conviction, is breathe.

Many blessings sent to you,

Self-Love 101: Waking Up To Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome And Complex PTSD: My Story

Photo by Tatiana Syrikova on Pexels.com

What it’s like to have just gone no-contact with your abusive mother and said no to the other abusers in your life after waking up to the fact that you have Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome during your “mid-life crisis,” losing everything, AND then have to deal with living in a pandemic!

I am a 40-year-old woman with no parents. I don’t feel like I ever had parents. I lost my father when I was 14 without warning and in the last 6 months, after researching, understanding, and beginning the healing process of the depth of the trauma I endured growing up with a Narcissistic Abusive mother, I had to cut her out of my life, too. Essentially, she has also passed away from my life. Both an intensity of relief came at the same time as the intensity of grief. The grief of never truly having had the mother most of your other friends and family seemed to have had, and the jealousy you felt when you saw other children being hugged, cherished, celebrated, wanted, validated, asked how they were doing and were listened to…

If you don’t know what a narcissist mother is, please check out this video: https://youtu.be/JITpJXtAwD8

Covert Narcissism and Passive-Aggressiveness is just as toxic: https://youtu.be/RAybjXhcVc0

Why Narcissistic Harm Is So Damaging: https://youtu.be/zmT81Qi-rso

***And please watch this important video on the signs and symptoms of Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome: https://youtu.be/JPqJhmIAwwU (this is the one that made me open my eyes and awaken to the last abusive situation I was in and it truly validated me and my feelings so I could actually take a stand and say NO MORE!)***

It is important for you to find a therapist who is educated and trained in Narcissistic Abuse and Attachment Traumas. More damage can be done to your already lacking sense-of-self if your therapist is unaware of these sensitive issues. It is also imperative that you find spiritual methods of healing from this long-term trauma.

Some days the pain of the grief rises up like a tidal wave you just cannot run from fast enough. Grief has always been deep within me. I am no stranger to loss of those closest to you. My parents split up when I was less than two years old. It was the first time I lost my father and was left with my physically and emotionally abusive mother. The kind of crazy-maker who somehow made it all my fault that I should be punished, how dare I make her feel certain ways, and why was there something so innately wrong with me. I always needed to be fixed.

Luckily, I had my dad who took me every other weekend, until about 12 years-old, when I spent absolutely every chance I could get with him before he died. As I began to realize and awaken to the terror that was my mother, my father became my best friend and saving grace.

At age 6, my sister moved away. She is 7 years older than me and fought back against the ridiculous and impossible rules of my mother until the courts sent her to a foster home. And when I was 8, my mother’s closest sister passed away from breast cancer at age 48. I was still too young to understand any of this constant drama, turmoil, and loss, but you can be sure it nestled itself snug and warm into my heart and subconscious.

In the Native American traditions, it could be said that I also experienced two other massive “initiations.” It is difficult to explain what an initiation is exactly, but it is like a welcoming or a beginning of something, usually marked by a specific ritual or rite of passage. For example, when children reach puberty, that’s considered their initiation into adulthood. Native Americans also consider illnesses as initiations. At age 7, I had a pretty bad concussion to the visual part of my head/brain, in which I had an Out of Body Experience and watched myself run back in the house from a distance. I lost my eye sight and much of my memories (I got my eye sight back and some memories.) At age 9, I had spinal meningitis, in which my brain swelled and I had to learn how to walk again. No one else had it in the area I lived. I believe these incidents to be part of the creation of my extreme sensitivities to this world.

The shit really hit the fan when my father died the day after returning from our second-ever family trip we had taken my cousin on. It was the same month I experienced sexual abuse and had to start high school for the first time! I also lost my grandfather to a stroke the next month!

My mother had her boyfriends on and off and my sister had already gotten married and had two children by the point my father died. My cousins all had their parents. Everyone had someone and something to live for, but me. My heart broke in a way that will never heal. And I lost all regard for anything this planet had to offer me. With the greatest exception being animals and music. I entered into my first “dark night of the soul” at age 16. (See my recent poem about never truly clinging very closely to this life: I Have Always Been Close To The Truth of Eternity)

By the age of 16, I was a self-harmer and I tried to kill myself several times. With the help of my father’s life insurance money and my own soul and whatever else was guiding/protecting me, I saved myself by heading off to Europe for my first two years of college and got as far away from the nonsense of my childhood as possible! I was distracted enough by all the traveling, studying, newness, endless beauty, partying, dancing, and whatever to stop wanting to die everyday. (Don’t worry, of course I got plenty of mental health care during all this time, and the care I did receive from therapists and doctors helped me to stay on the planet and see enough “love” for which I longed for so deeply, to stick around.)

I continued to find myself attracting and needing to be “taken care of” by a lineup of one narcissist after another until I finally woke up from that pattern just before turning 40.

This is an extremely important issue close to my heart because I honestly believe that 80% of mental health challenges and suffering is caused by narcissistic abuse. It needs to be more addressed and explained on a larger scale. People are beginning to awaken to the extremes of narcissistic abuse and the codependent who often doesn’t even realize that they carry the vibration within their unhealed subconscious that attracts narcissists. It seems an unfair battle within for the codependent who comes to understand that they have the power to change and heal themselves away from any further attraction, but the narcissist rarely wakes up to healing their abuse of power over others.

In waking up to my part in the narcissistic abuse I was continuing to “need” on a subconscious level, I went through an initial shock and another type of hell I didn’t know could exist. The first three months are like detoxing from a potent drug, such as heroin, because your body and mind are addicted to the peptids that flow in your blood from the stress and drama of being narcissistically abused. I cannot explain the mindfuck you have been through when someone you trusted for so long, and then became enmeshed with, twists and turns your thoughts and beliefs until you start to question your own sanity, become adrenal-fatigued, and confused and depressed.

I will write more at another time about the horrors of what it is like to actually wake up to Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome and to stay with yourself through the initial detox, the anger, the pain, the frustration, the betrayal, the hurt, the disbelief, the body issues/illnesses…and on and on…

Some of us end up homeless, suicidal, and unable to function in the world because we allowed ourselves to be brainwashed into believing lies told about us, and we stopped believing in ourselves and our intuition (usually without even realizing it’s happening.) It’s a very scary thing to awaken to, especially when your whole life was wrapped up in the narcissistic person or persons, and to the outside world, the narcissists appear as so grounded and to have the perfect life.

In addition, I learned is that spiritual teachers and so-called spiritual communities can be home to narcissists, toxic drama, abuse, and they can be the worst culprit of the exact things they pretend to go out and teach the world. Narcissists live for drama and they will create it wherever they go and then blame everyone else around them. Finding truth and healing is within you, not in the hands of others who put on personas of perfection and are praised for “fixing” everyone around them.

And just like any other recovery, it is an ongoing, every-day practice in returning to The Self and Self-Love. It’s learning to re-parent yourself, one day at a time. And it takes dedication, compassion, bad-assery boundaries, and a willingness to let the rollercoaster be ok at times.

IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE CRAZY OR THAT YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE!!

These are words that I have had to learn to stop associating with myself. Due to the sick mind games my mother played since I was born, these are words I have slowly begun to unpack that sit at my core and can be triggered by the unknown of remarks or words or gestures coming from others. Unworthiness, shame, and guilt are all tied to these words within.

When we start to heal from Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome, we often find we are left with what is known as Complex PTSD. We may not even know what the trigger is, but we may find ourselves in total meltdown reaction and can actually feel like we are dying. The memories of constant low-grade trauma collects in our cellular memory and we have to treat each trigger and subsequent reaction as if they are our little children who need to be shown the unconditional love our parents weren’t able to give us. See more about CPTSD here: https://youtu.be/NeQ8bgUAnFg

People who are uneducated about NAS and CPTSD are going to be more likely to judge you as having some other mental illness and wrongly label you, which only increases your poor self-esteem. This is why I was run through the mental health field without any true healing taking place, in fact, it probably made things worse. I longed for more and I am grateful that now I can truly get to the core of my lifetime battle.

Now that I have done some self-empowering work tonight that feels like it can be medicine for others on the path of self-healing, I am no longer crying out and releasing another layer of grief around the choice of letting go of my mother and the anger and rage that bubbles up under the grief. I allowed myself to feel that anger for my inner children who sometimes still feel the injustice of not being held and comforted by the one who brought us into this life. I understand how deeply she experienced the same trauma from her own mother and siblings, and I also honor her for the good she was able to do so that I could get to this point where I SAY NO to anymore abuse from others! I stop the trauma and drama DNA codes here and now! These diseased genetics will no longer be passed on through me. I choose to anchor the light. One day at a time.

I am now a strong, sensitive, resilient, emotionally intelligent person because of all of this. It’s a choice.

Please reach out if you are in search for more methods of healing and reclaiming your true power.

I’ve Always Been Close to the Truth of Eternity

Photo by Thuanny Gantuss on Pexels.com
I've never clung closely to this life
It's always just been a dream to me
And I've been pushed into believing that I needed
to be more here
I've always been close to the truth of eternity
And that's my sacred purpose

It's not to have children
Or to raise a family
Or to fully step into this dream

Because 3D is exactly that --
A dimension
And humans get so locked into being so dense

They claim a story
And that's the end of the story for them

I stand on the outside
And refuse to claim a story
Any longer

This means I'm freeing myself up
To be more of my authentic self
Who is in constant flux

The one who appears one way
And then dodges your stare
And becomes another

So we might share an eternal memory
When our eyes meet
Because I am not afraid to radiate possibilities
And be a mirror

This is an altered state
Being in 3D
And now you know without a doubt
That this illusion of certainty
You were so used to
Can change without your permission

So where is it you actually stand?
Who are you really?

5 Things They Don’t Tell You About Lightbody/Starseed Activations

Image borrowed from Quantum Life Source

Lightbody/Starseed Activations and any rituals that connects you with the eternal parts of yourself, are wonderful things, and a necessary part of awakening and staying connected to your Soul’s Path. However, as I experienced it myself (in the perfect way it happened for me up until this point), I could not understand the extreme highs that always seemed to drop back into extreme lows over and over. I expected to reach bliss and stay there! Boy, was I in for a surprise!

I was always disappointed in myself (the internalized narcissistic-abusive mother’s voice), in whatever process I was doing to “try to heal.” Which then lead to being disappointed in human life/my life in general, once again. I was under the impression (and the sheer hope/belief) that I would finally reach a place of peace, happiness, joy, and emotional relief, and I would stay there. I thought I was the only one who was always “too emotional,” or “too depressive” to be a good person, or to be a strong support/healer to others. That is what society and mainstream mental health will seem to be saying about you. That’s what an emotionally abusive parent will instill in you.

I thought the teachers/speakers/healers I had trusted to guide me to that point of experiencing spiritual bliss states were all at that point and no longer suffered from emotional pain/breakdowns (Facebook and social media help maintain this lie.) I let all of their thoughts/opinions/experiences/teachings be more valid than my own. Essentially, I believed I had nothing to offer the world, or the people I was in relationship with, no matter what I did, because I hadn’t reached the perfection of always being joyful, loving, happy, and in love with life, nor did I always know concretely what I was doing or how to live perfectly. I assumed they had reached that point. And you know what they say about assuming things…!

This is the essence of the core wound effect of growing up with a narcissistically abusive parent, and one of the main reasons why we continue to attract emotionally abusive people into our lives later. We believe the lies told to us about ourselves.

The #1 Thing They Don’t Tell You About Lightbody/Starseed Activations:

Lightbody/Starseed Activations are NOT going to be the cure to your human issues. They are NOT going to cure you of being human. In fact, it is more likely that they are going to make you MORE human!

The #2 Thing They Don’t Tell You About Lightbody/Starseed Activations:

Lightbody/Starseed Activations or any other type of spiritual ritual you may be drawn to participate in is an activation of the wholeness of who you are, have been, can be, desire to be. It’s a manner to which your Soul calls you to awaken to it. And that means you are going to awaken your consciousness into an awareness of “the good, the bad, the ugly,” the divine, the cosmos, the unknown! Not just “the good!”

Advertisements

The #3 Thing They Don’t Tell You About Lightbody/Starseed Activations:

When you activate the ancient and timeless parts of yourself in order to “heal” or “to get better” at being/acting/living (because you have been brainwashed into believing you are not already whole AND you also believe you can THRIVE), you will also access and activate all the parts of you that you have ignored, denied, suppressed, and even never knew could be there. The parts/feelings you consider “dark” will arise in equal level to that of “the light.” And you must address these parts/feelings and learn to process and integrate them as you go.

For more information on processing and integrating, click here: Quantum Healing.

Some people choose to access so much “darkness” and have trouble integrating and welcoming in their “light” aspects. Other people turn toward the “light” and cannot allow themselves to let any of their “darkness” to integrate and become their allies. These are strong examples of the play out of duality so ingrained in humanity.

The #4 Thing They Don’t Tell You About Lightbody/Starseed Activations:

Experiencing your own unconditional love is the only true path to integration and wholeness.

Others can provide it as an example and a base to learn from until you learn how to provide it for yourself. Wholeness unto yourself is the new sacred human rising.

The #5 Thing They Don’t Tell You About Lightbody/Starseed Activations:

Activations are exactly that: activations! They are energy that activates your field and your cellular structure to awaken to anywhere love is not or has not been living. They shake up the dense particles within you and your consciousness so that they can be healed and transmuted. Your multidimensional aspects come online and you become a powerhouse of healing love to yourself, your ancestors, and the environment around you. And you will do none of it perfectly. Love the mess.

Come back again later when I provide an article on what processing and integrating all the parts of you that arise looks like.

Thank you, much love,

How Receiving Distance Reiki Healing Works

It was in massage school in 2009 that I discovered my interests and passion for energy, energy healing, and energy therapy begin to blossom. I naturally and organically began to notice my heightened sensitivities to the varying energy streams in the human body, as well as the environment around me. I truly had no real idea about energy or to what I was awakening.

I was blessed to have a close friend I met in that 15-month, in-person, hands-on classroom setting, who was already a master of energy and energy healing. I was lucky enough to have her become a mentor to me and to support me in sparking an awakening to my sensitivities and gifts that would begin arising from then on. Essentially, she guided me to understanding energy while we were simultaneously learning the power of therapeutic massage. More importantly, we forged a bond that is the strong and wonderful gift of our friendship that has been a rock in my life since. Her healing energy and somatic therapies combined with Craniosacral Therapy is a transformative experience that is both out-of-this-world and grounded in the practical, physical world. You can find her here: Wyldwood Sanctuary. You can experience this healing online with her now. I highly recommend it!

By 2015, I had not only continued my physical Massage Therapy education, but I had also studied the subtle art of Qi Gong (a practice used as medicine for thousands of years in China, read more here: Qi Gong Institute of Rochester), Shiatsu and energy diagnosis (also known as Acupressure, read more here: Shiatsu: Taking Charge of Your Health and Wellbeing) for humans and horses, Astral Travel (read about it here: What Is Astral Travel?), and I slowly went through the three levels of Reiki, becoming a Reiki Master (here’s a very thorough article on the subject: Becoming A Reiki Master.)

These practices helped me become adept at understanding the subtleties of energy and how we are all made up of energy. There is an actual measurable field of energy surrounding each of us and each thing, even the Heart has its own magnetic field! Attunements to Reiki and other healing energy therapies open up your intention to activate healing energy for yourself and others. Your field shifts and changes with your particular intentions, as well as with whatever is in your environment and what you surround yourself with, including what you choose to focus on (people, television, media, food, music, thoughts, etc..) All of this is information will have an affect on and inform your subtle body, or energy field.

Animals are particularly sensitive to Reiki and Healing Energy, as well as your intentions. An animal can always sense the intention behind your actions and can feel your thoughts. Thoughts are also energy, so being in control of your thoughts is one powerful way to stay healthy on all levels. It takes dedication and actual physical energy to focus on your internal world of creation. You are a main creator of your world!

Receiving “Distance Reiki Healing,” aka “Absent Reiki Healing,” is just as effective, if not more than, actual “Hands-On Reiki.” We can connect with other people’s energy field and offer the healing energy flow. Their body and cells are going to absorb exactly what it is they need from the healing, whether they are resting in one place, or moving about unaware.

Here’s a quote from the article Sending Healing Across Space And Time: The Practice of Long-Distance Reiki:

“How does absent Reiki work? Think of a cell phone. It’s not necessary to be in physical proximity to a caller to talk on a cell phone, as cell phones use electromagnetic radio waves to connect with other cell phones. Similarly, Reiki recipients do not need to be in physical proximity to Reiki practitioners to receive Reiki, just as practitioners don’t need to be near recipients to send it. “We follow the Reiki protocol and it connects us,” Libby says, “because we’re all one.”

“Because we are all one…”

When you come closer in contact with your Inner Self, your Inner World, your Authentic Self outside of anything anyone else tells you to be, do, or have, you begin to understand the subtle world of being one with everything and the bliss of the truth of unconditional love.

Receiving Distance Reiki helps you get a glimpse into the world of the eternal, the world of peace, the world of truth beyond the masks of the 3D. Receiving Distance Reiki allows you to take a step closer to genuine care for the planet, genuine belief in the rightness of nature and the natural rhythms of Earth. You can begin to feel trust and begin to release control. Your place is exactly where you are and the Earth will take care of itself, whether you agree to it or not. Your feelings are valid and you are an important part of the story of time. You are not alone, there is always a loving energy surrounding you.

Prayers Are Rising

Image borrowed from Aleteia

There’s this place of holding both grounds, holding the high vibration and the empathy for those in fear.

There’s a place of wholeness within that feels safe wherever it goes knowing that this time will have an unending effect on the energy of everything

There’s a wave of light behind all of this

I refuse to believe anything less

And yet I feel for those who are experiencing great loss and disappointment

My only way of holding space is to offer my services and to keep my body healthy my energy clear and high

I refuse to give up I have something to offer and I want more from this life

There is a balancing taking place within and around the planet

The prayers are rising the energy of healing is growing

When a need and a heart desire becomes loud that’s when the energy of love and forgiveness can be drawn in

That’s when the answers can become clear

It’s when healing can be most infused Because the broken hearts are wide open

True Love

True love

True love doesn’t exist in some luxurious tropical island or some foreign land

It doesn’t exist in some place you have to travel to

True love exists within you

It exists in the cracks of everyday life

True love exists in the very moment you dream of it

It exists in your own heart

In the music that illicits the longing in your bones

True love wanders through your mundane neighborhood

It sneaks around the corners

Where you have walked a thousand times without expecting anything

True love lives in the tears you cry in those moments you feel alone

It whispers through the essence of Mother Nature

And all things Earth

But if you don’t listen quietly

It’ll continued to elude you

And in your fright of missing out on capturing true love,

You’ll run right by it

You’ll miss its subtleties

You’ll miss the wave of satisfaction

That flows to your heart

As the tides of true love

Are always ebbing and flowing within you

True love is a reflection of your desires

That returns you home to your own heart

It’s in those moments of awe

And it holds you in your darkest nights

True love shines in the little flower

And in the smile of a friend

It’s all around you

True love meets you at the crossroads of abandonment and the path

Back to your truth

True love holds your hand

As you stand at the edge of the paradigm shift that is you

It doesn’t run

It doesn’t falter

It flies

True love wraps you in its wings

And holds you as your own Heart Star

Whole and complete

As your own powerful pulsating Sun

A beacon of light

Of love

On an endless voyage through the cosmos

Then one day

As you’re cleaning the kitchen

True love speaks

To you through gratitude

Magnetizing the great vortex

That is your matching binary star

Your twin pulsating Sun

Who’s gravity only pulls you

You swoon the darkness out of each other

Your firelights ignite

An accelerated healing

Back to grace

Back to your truths

Your wholeness

As two burning stars meet

At the heart

True love is reborn

Into a mystery

Anchoring an ecstasy

Within and without

Yet to be seen

Wolf Totem Medicine

photo from wolf.org

Listening with my heart to the song Wolfborn by BrunuhVille (https://youtu.be/za8eYjQ7Nz8) these words came to me from the medicine of the Wolf Spirit:

People born of the wolf become natural leaders. The wolf points the way, finds the new path, fears not where they tread, but must become valiant in their leadership. They carry massive responsibility for their pack and their tribe. The wise wolf refuses to stay stuck. She refuses to live in fear and without choices. There is ALWAYS a way, howls wolf. Do not get lost on the circular path, do not give in to the lies of those who would wish to control you, to keep you tame. You dear one, are a wild beast, and others have some how come to fear the wild and untameable. But you, wild beauty, you will not be stopped, you will not settle. You will traverse wild lands and cross borders and boundaries few will dare to come near to, few will dare to climb the heights with you, nor cross burning deserts you see as a playground for your traveling feet. There is always a way and you are going to find it, or die trying. You will not stop and you refuse. Do not allow this passion to burn out, do not allow yourself to be swayed into the false belief that there is something wrong with you and that you need to fix this passionate heart of yours.

Get out there and find the others like you, the wild and free. Remember the tribe who truly love you, the sovereign beings who will be treading lightly, yet swiftly by your side, and to your left and right flank. Find out who these beings are. Stay dedicated to your heart and your passion. Your place is on the outside, the edge, the multidimensional. There are answers there for the collective that will have long-term impact for the betterment of your people. Please, we beg you not to give up on yourself! You are needed! Your voice can guide the people. Your howls will guide them toward the way out, the safety they will be needing. They will line up behind you.

What do I do?

Keep connecting to your soul. Don’t give up on the light that you know you are. The place where you thrive, where your greatest joy comes from.

Nature, be within nature, let it whisper in your ear and heal you. Don’t follow the wrong pack, don’t follow the mainstream pack. You know your true pack lies within your Heart. Be with Nature until you attract your pack. You are never alone.

Place your paws on the ground, be wild. It’s time to let go of the idea that you can go back to any of your previous lives. What lies ahead is belonging, oneness, wholeness, purity, clarity, and a rebirth into a New Earth.

Release the dark cover of shame you have been carrying and run wild with the pack in your Heart. You, my dear, are not a shameful being. You have carried enough in this life and this Soul. It is time to be free. Claim your freedom. Claim your self-dom. And move with the power you know is rightfully yours. Do it for yourself.
