A Joy-full Interaction

Posted by on Oct 27, 2013 in Slider | Comments Off on A Joy-full Interaction

A Joy-full Interaction

There are two things to keep in mind when we interact with others…Personal responsibility and Compassion and as long as these are in place, any interaction will bring joy and expansion. When we have a strong sense of personal response-ability, we understand that regardless of anything others say or do, we are ultimately in charge for what that does to us, and that we are to take charge of that feedback without letting it spill over onto the other person. When we practice this ability, we can trust the interaction to flow in whichever way, knowing that it will be a pleasant one because we are in charge of our self, thus freely allowing the other the space to interact. The interaction is especially sweet when the other person has a similar level of personal response-ability. Compassion is the other major component because it is important to have with our self when we get triggered, so that we can avoid the victimization, the judgments and/or the guilt trips and easily move into a place of personal response-ability. Compassion is also the cushion with which we receive the other when we witness a trigger in them; it is the honey that coats the injury and allows love to continue being the main focus of the interaction. In essence, any interaction can be a beautiful one if we already have in place a high value on personal response-ability and compassion, and practice them open-heartedly.   To explore the expansion in your own Life and/or to book your transformational session, you’re welcomed to contact me by phone or...

I Marry Me

I Marry Me

Having gone through the ritual of marrying my self two weekends ago and making my mission in life my first relationship, my desire for being in a relationship has completely changed. I walk the world with these new robes fuller in my self, which has brought me a calmness, assurance, and greater joy than I’ve ever felt before in the relationship area of my life. Even though I was looking for a man who could accompany me in life, I was still looking. I wasn’t in the dating scene or actively put my self out; I just waited for that man to come in my life; however passive my engagement in that dynamic was, there was a part of me still “looking” for him; gently feeling out if “this” was the guy I was waiting for. Since I did my ritual, I noticed this is no longer the case. I’m still attracted to men though, and over the last couple of weeks a lot of new people have come into my life -mostly men, but I no longer have a story or feelings attached to the interaction, other than what’s in the moment. The first few days after the ceremony were really interesting for me to witness my self in that new way of being, while my brain still wanted to run the old program and the thoughts were still coming up; but my lack of resonance with them, has prompted the attachment to be less and less, and they no longer have been coming up. It’s really amazing how what we think is Not who we are, but instead, they are a life form that we sustain with our energy and when we make the choice to stop feeding a certain thought, it’s life’s days are numbered. It’s been really wonderful for me to witness how I maneuver in Life when I’m centered in my heart, compared to when I’m operating from a belief that’s misaligned with my essence. There is a soothing that’s risen within me –a comfort and satisfaction of being with ME. To feel that enamored feeling generated by me, and received by ME, as well! Oh, the magical delight! I feel, accept, rejoice and cherish my self in a very different and more delicious way! As a child, teenager and young woman I took care of my self to be the greatest woman I could be, and to be the best mother I could be. Now, I take care of me, for Me and I REALLY get it now that the rest will fall into place, as long as my essence is the focus in my heart. Now, I sing for me! I look good, for me! I care for my well being, for me! I move in this Life… for ME! Life can sometime feel really harsh, and others so peachy! It really Is all about perception. I remember in my late twenties realizing this I came up with a saying…”The glass can look half full, or half empty, and when in doubt, empty the contents into another glass where you clearly have a full glass”. That’s been my secret about my relationship to perspective, and I have found my self to be much happier and move through things gracefully because of it. Now, I have the comfort of feeling great being on my own. I no longer “look” for anyone, and I find my self in total reliance of what I provide for my self. The only part, which is a very meaningful part for me that I’m still sorting out is the part about having sex with another person because I choose to share my self that way only in an intimate relationship, but that’s a story for another blog!   To explore the expansion in your own Life and/or to book your transformational session, you’re welcomed to contact me...

Using Shame as a Teacher

Using Shame as a Teacher

There’s never a need for us to feel bad about what’s happened, however in my opinion, it is a natural process by which we feel propelled to move into a different direction. I committed to my conscious personal development when I was 18 and after doing work for a few years I heard Caroline Myss say in one of her audio books that “shame is a great teacher”. At that time, I didn’t know who she was since the tapes (yes, it was that long ago, lol) had been lent to me by a friend; so naturally being who I am, I began testing out the notion. I noticed the interesting co-relation between the shame and my decision to change patterns in my life, from very early in my life even. I realized I had been working with shame as a tool for personal evolution in combination with my loud conscience practically all my life, however I didn’t even know it because I was operating from what’s called “unconscious competence”. There’s definite empowerment attained when we realize things at a conscious level, and now that I knew how to work with shame at that level, I started looking inside and at my past –all the stories I was holding. Shame became my new toy, my flashlight, and my measuring scale to delve into the crevices of my depth to rebirth my self into further alignment to the Truth of who I really was when I got stripped of the stories hindering me back from being in my full integrity. If I had to choose One tool that aligned me most with the level of integrity I now carry was and still is, shame! Now…I’m never talking about shame in the sense of beating my self up with it because it stops being serving; I also know the heaviness and pain that can bring, and it’s called guilt. It’s a sneaky type of energy and one that’s been used for centuries by religion to empower those who wish to control the masses. I have found guilt to be so imbedded in our society’s psyche that it’s been corroding us in a very quiet manner –one of the reasons we felt and feel like we haven’t got the right to care for our self first. The guilt that was attached to that notion is one of the reasons women up until now are still battling with a balance of caring for others, and taking care of our self just to name one example of the passive-aggressive toxicity guilt can carry. However when we use a moderate amount of that guilt, which is in my opinion what we call shame, it can be (and it definitely has been for me), a powerful tool to realign with our essence. On the other hand, I have witness many times over, how individuals simply bypass enormous unfolding for their self and those around them by avoidance of the work and courage it takes to look at one-self’s actions and own them, so they can in turn be transformed and released. I have witnessed the thoughts, feelings, words and actions from which we want to take responsibility, the ones we feel shameful about, are the ones that carry the greatest transformation! What I find most serving about working with shame the way I use it (as a measuring device) is to own my behavior with absolute impeccability, whether I do it out loud or not, which sometimes is just not possible or necessary, but most times it brings tremendous payoff to me, and the person/people involved. Shame has thought me humility and compassion! Humility because of the level of integrity and honesty in me, I appease my self into a space of acceptance that I don’t have it all figured out; and that I deviate from the path I’m committed to walk; and compassion because I realize I am a reflection of everything I’ve been exposed to and I didn’t grow up with someone showing me how to actually carry my self out the way I...

The Basis Of My Healing

The Basis Of My Healing

I’m very excited to share this first blog entry with you and my hope is that my posts serve you in getting to know me better, and the angle with which I approach my life, my healing, and thus the space I hold for other people’s healing. Many, many years back I heard someone (I believe was Caroline Myss) say “at God’s speed” and I claimed that for my self! I asked for guidance with how to be in that practice because I always want to move through things as gently, quickly and gracefully as possible. I’ve always been terrible (and I’ve never made the effort to get better) at holding a grudge, or being revengeful; and as I began my conscious journey into awareness, I realized how essential this piece is for our flow with whatever comes up. Being in shock is something that when dealt with, it passes fairly quick; depending on the person’s resilience, their sensitivity in the moment of shock, and the type of shock, it can naturally last one to three days; more than that is not natural, however for us humans the process gets prolonged because we oppose what comes up. I have found the best therapy for shock is to feel EVERY thing! And let it out however it needs to express itself in a safe and caring way to the body. The truth is when we allow our self to really FEEL what ever comes up, there’s no space for the ego because this last communicates with us through the mind. The ego has no saying in the heart (the master of our feelings), so the best way to keep living from a place of presence is through feeling as sensitively as we can. It is this way that we can Be in the present moment; it is this way we can feel Alive! Life never stops to amaze me! We’re constantly being asked: Is your heart big enough to hold this, and this, and this, and this…?” I am deeply in love with humans; we’re so courageous in coming here, forgetting our essence/who we are, and taking on such disguises of Love. The Truth is, I’ve unsubscribed from that story and I now know better, so Everything in my Life is one gift after another, after another. The pain and trauma are separate to the shock and what helps me with that is always (as my dear friend described it once) “being brutally honest with my self”. I am grateful for (as I call it) my loud conscience! It’s helped me to see with clarity; and with practice over the years, being courageous to take Full response-ability for how I’ve put my self out! I’m also grateful for the strategies I have to deal with and remove trauma from the root. Everything really IS a gift and trauma comes with great gifts as well for us. Some time ago I realized why WE are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Never has there been a time on this planet with as many healing modalities as we have now. Healing is readily available and now we know if nothing else, breathing consciously will help with a Lot! I lived with serious pain at different levels for so many years that I began looking for the most efficient ways (the least time and effort required) to heal and truly release trauma. Initially I did it in search for my self and I’m in deep gratitude for the fabulous support I’ve received through intuition (call it Higher Self, God, Love, Oneness, Universe); it was that voice of guidance that allowed me to find what I needed. When I first began my journey onto Conscious Living I had no idea there were books, cultures, groups, or teachers I could consult. At the time I was frustrated and felt so lonely, but that too was a gift that prompted me to refine listening to and trusting my intuition and understand the difference between lonely and alone and begin dealing with it. Eventually I realized it...
