The Winds of Karma May Change Your Mind

Ah… the winds of karma. What we send out returns to us in greater force. Or does it?

My guides recently gave me an important lesson in karma. In meditation I was greeted with the news that I had been betrayed by a loved one and that person was given an opportunity to fess up or pay up. The situation itself was several years old and even hearing the news I really had no emotional connection to whether it had really happened or not. I thought that if the winds of karma were upon his tail, it would make more sense if the act for which he was being “punished” was actually something that caused trauma or negative emotions in the one who was betrayed. If I had no real feelings on the situation and just saw it as a “just what is” type of incident then wouldn’t it mean the punishment he was perceiving was from his own guilt and/or shame instead of receiving back what he had dished out?

The goddess of karma sent a clear message his way that the winds of karma would soon change his mind. I thought, “but we’re past this. It doesn’t mean anything to me other than what is. I forgive him.”

My guides told me that I was next. I wondered what misguided deed I had done in the past that I would now have to confront. The winds of karma blew and I saw a vision of a former partner. He had been hurt badly by our break-up years ago and the goddess of karma said this one was for the both of us. We spoke our apologies and plead for forgiveness, but the winds of karma blew harder. The heartbreak that had been felt was far too much for us to make up for. As the winds blew to nearly the point of no return a voice asked us if we were ready to receive our punishment for the dark that we had played.

“Punishment? There should be no punishment,” I said. “I know the essence of spirit and divine will and it is an all-fogiving love. I do not carry sorrow within me about the choices I’ve made in my life. If I carried them with me before, I have since learned to recognize the beauty in all that is. There is no punishment because divine will needs moments of pain and chaos in order to make necessary changes where things are not working. I know fully in my heart that although I was the catalyst for much emotional trauma in this person that once they were able to transcend their emotional despair, he found a stronger sense of self and synchronicities were able to line up in his life to lead him on his true path. His true path was not with me and in the act of moving on, I freed the both of us from a reality that was not meant to be.”

The winds of karma grew still until I realized I was looking at an elderly man with a funny mustache who just smiled politely at me as if I had just completed my lesson. He dissipated into the winds of karma in a tornado ascending back to the space above us. Good job.

The lesson here? Karma makes it possible for you to make amends or clear any disharmonious emotional baggage you have carried with you that you consciously want to resolve. If you believe you have wronged others, karma will bring you opportunities to right what you’ve done and remove the old wound from your field. These old wounds are heavy and if you are going to integrate more light into your body, then they need to go!

You are not at the mercy of karma unless you believe yourself to be. If you believe that karma is a bitch and out to get you- it will be! You have relinquished your own power to something outside of yourself. The act of clearing karma is not only the action of resolving past issues (at your own pace and in your own way) but also breaking free of the mindset that something is out to get you. In the 5th dimension we are aligned with divine will. There is no judgement here- only love and acceptance. Out of disharmony comes the potential for harmony and we continue upon this ebb and flow in order to grow.

What many perceive to be karma is actually the law of attraction at its best work. If you radiate disharmony, you will attract it to yourself. You are a magnet that attracts like frequencies. Now, you have to power to shift your choices at any time and begin to choose for the higher good, but the winds of karma will not knock on your door 10 years from now to drag you into the pits of hell for your past doings. However, if you believe that it will… it will. If you are able to move beyond your actions in the past and see them for what they really were- moments of disharmony for which the potential to create harmony was finally realized- you are already on your way to breaking free of your karmic cycle. Remember, when one moves from the darkness into the light you are often a powerful inspiration for others to follow your example. If you were to be punished after transcending that existence, why would anyone ever want to change? It just doesn’t make sense.

When you spend more time communicating with your higher self and integrate the lessons brought to you- it should all begin to make more sense. Not less. Move away from thought patterns and belief systems that are set out to confuse you. There has been a lot put out there just to cause a tangled cluster of nonsense in our heads so we don’t utilize the creative powers of the universe to its full potential. Once you start letting go of old paradigms, you truly do find yourself a free being.

The Alignment of the 5th Dimension

After taking a break from blogging for a while to tackle some intense spiritual encounters, I’m happy to say I’m feeling grounded again. The shift is definitely upon us and I have been feeling the gusts of its mighty wind for a few adventurous weeks. While reveling in the bliss of unconditional love and synchronicities, I have also had to do battle with the depths of inner demons and nasty energetic attachments. It is from this incredible journey that I am brought back to home to share some of my lessons with any who are ready to learn.

The alignment statement:

Over a year ago my partner and I (we recently got engaged!) began practicing with various forms of breath work while incorporating intentional statements, affirmations and gemstone meditation. We had received a rather large piece of malachite from a couple of close friends a few years back as a birthday gift and had always felt very soothed by its energies. On a whim, I looked into affirmation statements for malachite and discovered that it was helpful in aligning one’s will with the will of the divine. I created an affirmation statement for follow my meditative practice using a slow, counted breath (counting to 10 during inhalation, hold for 10, release on exhale for 10 and repeat). The affirmation I used was loosely as follows: ” My will is aligned with the will of the divine and I proceed through life with confidence and higher purpose.” After doing the meditation only a few times, I started to more clearly hear my guides who proceeded to lead me through a series of informal (and sometimes very formal) exercises, classes and lessons.

I learned there was a serious connection to this alignment statement that many of my other mediation partners had not yet tapped into. I shared my experience with my partner who had yet to share in the heightened awareness I was now experiencing. After a few frustrating sessions and a moment at which he felt like giving up, he surrendered. He said, “Show me! If there is a higher purpose out there and I am a piece of this mystical puzzle then show me! I align my will with that of the divine creator and I shall carry out the will of the divine!” Shortly thereafter, he too began to have higher sense perceptions that were almost sharper than mine and I was a trained practitioner.

The 5th Dimension:

The 5th dimension is the dimension in which we align ourselves with our higher dimensional self and the will of the divine. Our guides are there to help us in our journeys. They have been there forever and they want to help us. However, since they are vehicles of the divine, they  cannot interfere with free will. You have to actively seek their assistance. The more you act in line with the requests of the divine or your guides and you continue to make your alignment statement, the more powerful the results.

Free will vs. Divine will is the ultimate battle between good and evil, light and dark. If we choose actions that are out of alignment with the divine (the master plan, god’s will or the greater good) we allow evil (demons, entities, or the destructive force) room to play. Once you align yourself, you are actively stating to the universe that you are committing yourself to working for the whole- whatever it takes. Now you don’t always have to act in accordance with the whole, but you must find a balance in it. 51% of the time to be exact.

Get Ready:

You will never become less powerful… well, unless your karma is out of balance. The flood of higher sense perceptions can be uncomfortable to say the least. Do some preliminary house cleaning first. What do you surround yourself with? Images, books, music and art that emit destructive frequencies will only bring more disharmony into your home. Do you have some personal work or shadow integration to do? Do you think your life is a wreck or do you have obstacle after obstacle jumping in the way of your goals? You may have some unhealthy energetic attachments drawing these experiences towards you. It may be helpful to do some service to others, some gifting or positive thought affirmations before aligning yourself. Once you align yourself the game is on. You are an instrument of the divine and anything that needs clearing will be knocking at your door and sometimes at very inconvenient times. Cultivate a lifestyle that promotes healing and balance before jumping into this. Find an energy therapist to help guide you through your process so you don’t spin out into a healing crisis. If you’re in the Seattle, Wa area come to one of my workshops to gain greater awareness of your own energetic qualities.

Life is Joyful:

Be present in your experience. It is all here for a reason and you are more powerful than ever. It is only because you are so powerful that you have the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing journey. Never forget that when you feel your energy drained, a little burst of honest and heartfelt gratitude will send some universe juice your way. Drink it up.

Stress is an illusion and worry is a virus best to be avoided.

What really is stress? Stress is what happens to us when we are faced with an obstacle we do not feel we have the ability to overcome. Knowing that we create our own reality, it seems rather silly that we would create any situation which we could not overcome. There’s no point to that. What we’ve actually done is probably default manifested- in which we’ve checked out and denied responsibility for an action and chosen not to participate in the creation and let others do it for us- OR we’ve succumbed to the viral infection of worry.

Worry is a virus. Worry occurs when our kidneys are out of balance or we’ve contracted the virus from others around us. The easiest way to contract worry is from our parents, family or closest friends. If you are surrounded by people who constantly worry- you probably will to. Now the way worry attacks your system is by attaching itself as an energetic thought pattern. You have the first thought that provokes the question of “what if…” Then your mind races with horrifying, life-crumbling, stress-inducing scenarios. This is usually quickly followed by equally damaging feelings of self-doubt and low self-esteem. “I can’t…” Then, you have the urge to either stuff it down with self-medicating behavior such as addictions, food, and destructive activities or you act as a carrier and spread the dis-ease to another close to you. You call your buddy, your mom, your grandparents, your partner and unload. Because of their connection to you they experience empathy for your situation and identify with your frustration. Unless the person is acting from a higher self and is able to guide you away from the patterns of worry, they begin to worry for you. Now, you have a partner in crime. Manifestation is always more powerful in numbers and you have solicited more focus in the directions that you ultimately need to avoid.

Wherever your mind is, whatever your focus is on and how detailed your focus becomes is a direct representation of what you are creating in your life. If your focus is on not having enough money and bills pouring in from the mail, you’ll only get more of them. If your focus is on how out of shape you feel and how tight your pants are, they will only feel tighter and you will only feel more out of shape. If you are worried about a doctor’s diagnosis turning out positive- it more than likely will. This is why we say, focus on what you truly want and have that you love, not what you don’t want.

I see a lot of my friends and family falling into bad habits, unfortunate situations and physical illness all because of worry. Worry stresses the body and the organs because the focus is no longer on the health and wellness of the person. The focus is in worry and the mind is running wild with undesirable outcomes. When I receive unfortunate news, I may experience a moment of shock, but ultimately my higher self steps in and says, “So what? We can handle this. Just see how you want this situation to play out and be thankful of the lesson that the possibilities are presenting to you.” Ah, yes. Exactly.

It can be that easy, but it takes a long time to fully get rid of the worry virus once it has been implanted. Perseverance will eventually reset the patterns and create new, healthier patterns which are worry-free. Write yourself affirmations- I do all the time. When you catch yourself caught in the web of worry- turn your thoughts to the opposite side of the spectrum and shed some light.

Waking up is hard to do!

Many of us are familiar with all the buzz around 2012, some calling it a shift, an end time, a new age, a new direction, the coming of the golden age, the age of aquarius, the awakening… It’s tough to get a grip on what it all means and not get lost in all the conspiracies, opinions and lore. The fact that all these opinions exist is actually just another indicator to what is actually happening. For if the question exists, then so does the answer. They are mutually dependent on one another.

More and more people are looking around at what exists in the world and asking what it all means. This is the first sign of waking up. We are a species that has been dreadfully drowned by misinformation and apathy. As we gain awareness to truth, changes occur within us that are difficult to deal with at times.

We are creators. Each one of us possess the responsibility to create our own experience of the universe. When we are un-aware of this, we create in what I call default mode. Whatever we worry about, stress about, put focus on (and our intentions behind it) manifest before us in seemingly random ways that never quite provide us with enough synchronicity to raise our awareness and just enough satisfaction on the surface that it reinforces the default way of being. Unknowingly, we have been asleep our entire lives. Enough! It is time to wake up!

You may hear a lot of people talking about levels of consciousness, raising your level of consciousness or reaching new states (or altered states) of consciousness. Some people associate these terms with pot smoking festival kids and yoga class. It’s much more than that. Think about what it means to be conscious. It means to be AWAKE! As we raise our consciousness, we are actually just increasing our awareness of what is around us and waking up to information that has been hidden because parts of us were still asleep.

Everyone knows the feeling when a foot goes numb from sitting awkwardly. It feels like it’s not there until it tingles and twitches as it wakes up. Well, think about that for parts of you that you didn’t realize were there. If you were born with a numb, invisible foot and then one day it started to wake up, what would you do? You’d be thrilled! Suddenly walking is made so much easier! As parts of you begin to wake up, it’ll be awkward and tingly and a little strange. Once you move past the discomfort, BAM- living- so much easier!

One of the biggest factors in how comfortable the awakening process will be is how much compassion you have for others. If you are self-serving and self-centered, you are playing on the opposite side of the team. Self-service does not sustain life and whatever does not sustain life, the universe eventually destroys.

If you are compassionate towards others and focus less on what you want and desire for yourself and put more focus into helping others or sharing with others, you will see a change. The universe provides the playing field for whatever we create. There is a collective consciousness that we are all connected to but to most it is still far from their current level of consciousness. Time is speeding up and more and more people are showing subtle signs of waking up. Take a moment and think about where your focus has been and where has the focus been for others around you?

It may seem like big companies are getting whatever they want and those that care for the masses are left with nothing, but that’s a perception still within the old framework. We have been taught that money, jobs, big families, cars, clothes… all these THINGS are to be valued and that status and knowledge can be attained with the right upbringing and combination of these things. It’s all backwards. Knowledge is completely free and universal. The collective consciousness provides information about anything you want or need to know- anything. What we’ve lost by focusing on these things is community and abundance- limitless abundance. It exists in the world today, right now, but it’s in the wrong hands because our cookie jar was raided while we were sleeping.

The alarm is going off- it’s time to stop hitting the snooze button and start waking up!

Here’s what you can do to be more active in your process: 

  • Find a guide or energy healer. 

Letting go of old habits, behaviors and patterns can be uncomfortable and challenging. However, the short period of discomfort is relieved by endless joy, abundance, love and knowledge. It is worth it. Finding guidance from a healer is well worth it. 

Check out www.singingbutterfly.com if you’re in the Western Washington area.

Other states, check out www.americanassociationofhealers.com or http://www.holisticnetworker.com/. There are plenty of other sites for finding a healer in your area, but these should help get you started.

  • Meditate with intention

What is it that you want to create in the world? Get a group together to find like ideas and meditate with intention for even just a few minutes once or twice a week. Meditate on your own each morning or evening and visualize future places, events, ways of being. 

  • Give gifts and grattitude

Give without expecting anything in return. Start a grattitude journal and make a list of all the things your are grateful for each day or each week. Pause when in nature to thank the Earth for providing this moment. Thank the bees or butterflies for their polinating dance as they fly by you. Thank the sun for warming your face. 

  • Breath work!

Check out my previous blog for some breath exercise suggestions- Just Breathe.

  • Play

Life is fun. Find opportunities to tap into that inner child. Laughter is one of the best ways to raise our frequencies and when we do it in groups, it has immense power.

  • Talk to those around you

I often find that once people start thinking differently about their lives, they often think that those around them will judge them. Don’t worry. Once you move towards full consciousness, others around you will either follow your lead or slowly pull away. Relationships that are not meant to be or are not serving a greater purpose may change. Allow these fluctuations to occur. Also allow new relationships to blossom. You will find that the universe will place just the right people in your path at just the right time.

I’m more excited now for the future than I have ever been. I receive my information from guides that I have gotten to know over the years as well as books and classes. I find that the closer I get to full consciousness, others around me go through changes as well. I know it can be difficult and unsettling- it’s hard to see the world you once knew become something so different. The more we reach out and share this information, the easier it will become for all of us.

I wish you all a safe healing journey.

Energy you attract… it’s a part of you

The law of attraction is pretty ridiculous. It’s true, of course. However, it seems to be the most difficult universal law for many to truly understand. When faced with any situation in which you are dealing with a person that perhaps irks you, look inside yourself. There is often an undeniable similarity somewhere in the way that person is behaving to an attribute of yourself that you are perhaps unconsciously portraying. Now, I don’t mean that someone who finds themselves on the other end of a violent relationship is necessarily violent themselves, but what they are doing is putting out a specific frequency. That frequency may be one of the victim, the wounded child, the repressed feminine, the femme fatale, or the Debbie Downer. These fragmented aspects of ourselves can be great teachers if we allow them to be. Left to run amuck, these personifications can be detrimental not only to ourselves, but to everyone around us. And the more we identify with these aspects, the more we attract circumstances which make these the most appropriate We all have met these people inside of ourselves at one time or another, but if serious healing is needed and we neglect to take notice of the lessons the universe is presenting to us in what now becoming a much faster, louder and indisputable experience, sometimes a little outside intervention is helpful and even necessary.

Pride is a bitch. It is a frequency, a state of consciousness that is still very much grounded in force. It will never conquer or serve any of us to our highest potential, and by definition of force, there will always be opposition. It can be difficult to accept outside intervention at times, but in the end, people who have wrapped themselves in so much chaos that have made outside intervention necessary, are here again to teach us great lessons: Consistency, Trust and Unconditional Love. These are  the elements that were missing at some point during their early development. And these are often the elements that we as a whole continue to miss still.

About a month ago, I had a very enlightening evening with my partner and a friend in which I experienced new levels of consciousness that are challenging to put into words. I aligned my will with divine will and fully allowed myself to be a servant to all, whoever shall need me, in whatever way I can best serve for the highest good of the whole. I find that the law of attraction has new meaning for me. For when incidents arise that a particular person iks me, I can very quickly take the lesson and be grateful for the gentle (or sometimes not so gentle) reminder that I may still need to do some inner work around a particular subject or event. I’ve also noticed that events or people that come into play are not necessarily attracted by a similar frequency in me, but a frequency within a group of people and I am here to help stabilize and return the group to harmony. No one is ever perfect and with all the lies and misinformation we have all learned growing up, it’s amazing that we still have that spark inside us that still searches for something bigger.

So what happens when you run into a situation or a person that represents an unhealed frequency of the whole? You respond as a whole. It brings you together to talk about and release your experiences in order to put the focus and healing where it needs to go. You fulfill and honor the lesson. Unless as a group your make that conscious decision to transcend that level of consciousness together, a few pieces will and then another few pieces will and then some will fall away. This is what we are dealing with on a universal scale. Our world. Our universe. We have all been (although to many unknowingly) creating our own little universes that this Earth has furnished the makings for. Sure, those who know the rules have played the game better than some, but no matter what we have greater ability in numbers. If we align our intentions together, a new world shall be born.

Aside from the declaration of alignment I acted upon last month, I also made a bond and agreement with several friends to act entirely as a community or very large family. We pretty much already did this, but it was never officially declared and for the most part work and money was always a private aspect. Now, we eat as a family whenever it best suits the family, money is earned for the family, every trade and skill is a gift to be leaned, shared and appreciated by all. Since this happened, I have been able to turn off the heat in my house for a tree guy now brings us old dead wood to feed our fire endlessly, a sweatlodge for community use and led by an Lakota-Souix elder with no where else to sweat (and had been looking for a lodge space for almost a year) has been built in my back yard and I am now learning to pour and lead a sweat ceremony, a surprising amount of prospective family members have emerged with amazing talents and gifts. Abundance is endless.

After years of my own healing, I’ve finally come to really love the law of sttraction. I know because of the frequency in which I hold my home and the vibration I maintain for myself, I can create a higher potential experience for an entire family. I have enough weight to lend a few pounds so to speak. We all do. It’s time for us to realize our full potential and finally understand how this universe really works. After all, the answers have been so plainly in front of us all along. We just forgot to pay attention.

Creation

We are each the creator of our own universe. Once we align ourselves with our higher purpose, we come into resonance with source power. However, in numbers we are granted more source power to work with. We come together to create a new world. As we exercise and strengthen our light bodies, we see the truth. All answers reside inside of ourselves. Welcome to the awakening.
