Full Moon Blessings 12-17-13

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

Many Full Moon Blessings to All take this time to focus upon the positive things that we’d like to manifest within our lives, becoming more aware of our blessings rather than focusing and dwelling upon our problems or any lack we may be having as focusing on those things take on negative connotations and will only serve to bring more things to worry about and complain about.

Now more than ever we need to put forth extra effort and energy in maintaining a positive frame of mind, seeking positive experiences, surrounding ourself with positive people, and especially be appreciative for not only what we have but also the multitude of blessings that we have yet to receive. Our reality and experiences are a direct result of our thoughts and in whatever direction positively or negatively (anger, worry, fear, anxiety, etc.) aspected that’s where the universal energies will abundantly flow.

So if you want to truly embark upon a better New Year and see positive changes within your life, let go of all the worry, fear, anxiety, and past hurts/pain/traumas that have kept you prisoner within your own mind and life. Take a leap of faith and trust that the river of life knows which way to go. Cling not to the shore too tightly for in doing so we miss many opportunities that otherwise would not be made available to us. Fear keeps us bound to the shoreline clutching it for dear life robbing us of our joy, passion and quality of life.

Let go for in reality fear is not real, it is a taught response in which we have been endoctrinated as to what we should fear as a means to keep us more submissive and extremely limited in tapping into our potential. The only true limitations are those we’ve allowed others to convince us of and those that we place upon ourselves through our incessent negative thinking. We are taught to believe whatever is spoonfed us and ask no questions, if we are ever to ascend above and beyond these very limitations and conditions that humanity finds itself upon, then we all must begin taking responsibility for not only our actions but also our thoughts.

For in the grand scheme of things we are all interconnected thus what we do to ourselves or another energetically we are doing to everyone and everything for the world is truly a mirrored reflection of ourselves and all too often the things within us that we aren’t willing to accept are the very personalities that we tend to attract unto us to learn whatever karmic lesson is needing to be learned.

It seems that all we are ever bombarded with in life is negativity in every form/facet we can’t seem to escape it whether it’s through the media, the news, the radio, etc. all we ever seem to hear about is war, turmoil, dis-ease, famine,division, separateness, judgement of others in comparison to the status quo or belief systems imposed upon us to be socially adequate and competetant in order to fit into the definitions and guidelines legislated upon us.

And of course the list goes on and on, but the fact is most everyone focuses more on all the bad stuff occurring around the world and harping about it but yet in reality all that does is further empower that which they are complaining about and attracts more and more of the stuff that people don’t want to see occurring because everyone’s focused upon its devastation, injustice and pointing fingers to who’s right and who’s wrong, who’s worthy of life and who’s not.

All of that is negative energy. No matter how you look at it just like if you spend all your time focusing upon a child who has bad behavior by complaining about it to everybody you know, constantly talking about it and dwelling on it next thing you know bad behavior skyrockets and becomes much worse because of all the attention and energy being focused upon that certain aspect.

Let’s flip that around and start looking at more positive aspects of life, let’s focus more on all of us working together towards the common good and inherent rights of us all not just one class, race, belief or political/financial/family heritage is. WE cannot focus on the bad and expect good stuff to happen as if by some miracle! We must become the miracle as Bob Marley said it so perfectly “None but ourselves can free our minds.”

Stop living in misery, struggling in a lackluster life that you loathe because of all the conditions of the world and life’s circumstances as we know it and begin transforming your thoughts towards focusing more on the positive things in life. Look for the countless multitude of blessings we truly have each and every day even if we’re not consciously aware of it. Life is not meant to be about struggle, adversity, war and fear. It’s meant to be enjoyed, embraced and celebrated daily in love, peace and harmony with everything ~all of creation regardless of it’s form. Be the change that you want to see that old addage cannot be stressed enough.

If you want to start off the New Year on the right foot with lasting positive effects then make it a resolution to change your mindset and watch not only your life positively transform, but also become reflected into the world around you. Which will open more doors and opportunities in which to more fully tap into your potential, meet positive individuals who may be instrumental in helping you to achieve your goals and dreams, as well as, drastically improve the quality of your life and that of your family. And begin rippling outwardly positively influencing the mass consciousness of humanity.

After which, if enough individuals begin shifting their consciousness to a more positive experience and reality then it will tip the scales and omit so many of our world’s problems. Our perceptions have been tainted by the programming that we have received throughout our lifetime, isn’t it time to stop allowing other people to dictate to us what freedom should be or is and in reality isn’t the word freedom as we know it truly a contridiction in terms when you really look at the mass manipulation and intentional endoctrination that we have all been subjected to? The only true limitations we have are those we’ve been manipulated to believe we have and in the process have convinced ourselves that we are always limited in some way.

Break free from those thoughts that hinder and hold us back from truly expressing who we innately are as divine beings. We are far more powerful than most can possibly fathom, each of us beautiful beacons of light but all too often our lights are dimmed by those around us or the systems in place that control practically every aspect of our lives. Those in the higher echalon put a lot of energy, effort and time into devising a wonderful “foolproof” plan to make the world the way it is today through many, many centuries and generations.

When are we the common folk, the outcasts, the everyday average Joe going to put time, effort and energy into self discovery, enlightenment, universal peace and betterment of life as we know it? We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the ones who can save us, it is each and every person’s responsibility to wake up, pull the blinders off your eyes (the intentional veil of confusion we’ve all been under for countless centuries) and begin ascending in awareness of our divinity, purpose and intentionally focusing positively upon the planet, all of creation and that which exists (regardless of it’s form) transforming and shifting the mass consciousness of humanity into a more natural harmonic, peace-filled, compassionate and loving reality for all to witness, experience and enjoy.

Let’s make 2014 a much more positively aspected year and may you have unlimited abundance and blessings, as well as, your needs met and may your resources be plentiful. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! ~Leslie/Akia

My apologies for the prolonged absence. I had been in the process of trying to find a new home and as a result that consumed much of my time. Thankfully, we’ve found a place and completed our move. In lieu of that, I am hopeful to now be able to actually focus on my work and sites fulfilling some of the promises I’ve previously made in regards to my websites and what I wanted to implement. Thank you as always for your continued support and patience it is greatly appreciated!

Despite all the planetary changes that many are undergoing right now, I hope that you are handling them with ease and remaining in your personal power and trying to maintain a calm balance in your life as these will help greatly diminish the physical effects. Be blessed and be a blessing unto others!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Moving Forward

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

I find it amazing sometimes how we set ourselves up for lessons unbeknownst to us at the given time; often taking years to finally realize exactly what lessons we are needing to learn, as well as, at what cost sometimes it may take us to realize what’s truly being conveyed to us.

While some lessons are common sense, others may leave us baffled when we don’t even realize that they are needing to be learned or that we may have felt we’ve learned them a long time ago. At any rate, fate has a funny way sometimes of getting us to pay attention and deal with things in our lives we’ve been putting off or trying to avoid dealing with due to emotional attachments and painful traumas experienced. And sometimes simply because we aren’t ready or feel able to deal with certain circumstances just yet.

Of course, there comes a time in which we are forced to deal with things we’ve tried to avoid and this year seems to really be one of those years in which we are being forced to deal with a lot of things we’ve probably never thought we’d have to; but alas, the time is here to take action and do so that we can move forward into better energies and embrace other available opportunities that may not have been available to us previously.

This seems to come often times as a forced purging or bringing to surface those very things we’ve been putting off for a rainy day and well those rainy days are here for us to finally deal with those issues as a catalyst to help loose the dross that’s still weighing us down energetically that’s filled with emotional, mental and physical debris and whatever else is imbalanced within our lives that must be dealt with before we are able to forge ahead.

I am constantly hearing from people from all over the world who are in different circumstances but yet there is an underlying theme of being forced this year to make some changes in some area of their lives in which they’ve become too comfortable, stuck or merely find themselves in a state of unhappiness because their lives do not reflect what they feel it should. I, for one, can relate to that as well and I’m sure many individuals also are going through a similar situation too.

I believe this year has been quite opposite of my original expectations. It has been more about dealing with things, reiterating certain relationships, creating boundaries, letting go and transformation in many aspects. For without these things being dealt with how then can things progress and those expectations come into fruition? Simply, they can’t! We can only put things on the back burner for so long before it begins to create problems that eventually we’ll be forced to deal with in order to move forward.

Metaphorically speaking, this year has been just that in a nutshell. I think the days of barely skating by with only dealing with the necessities are quickly becoming a thing of the past as we are being urged to take a more proactive stance than previously. It is now time in which to put forth more effort into actively manifesting our desires instead of simply wishing and praying for them to manifest for us.  We have the power to create whatever it is that we need in our lives but all too often we question our abilities and doubt ourselves being capable of overcoming the adversities within our lives in order to truly triumph and claim our inherent wealth.

We have spent the last several decades studying, preparing and absorbing knowledge about how to manifest our needs, wants and desires into our lives. We have dabbled throughout the pages of history seeking methods to exalt our experiences here upon Earth to understand the great mysteries but have we really applied any of it? In theory yes, we’ve applied lots of stuff towards our heightened sense of self awareness but in reality, we have not necessarily applied the appropriate energy, effort and focus towards doing something with all that we have learned, absorbed and prepared for throughout the majority of our lives.

We have an innate ability to remain above the fray in many circumstances but all too often, we allow the hardships, reality and adversities to get the best of us. In this state, we become weak, vulnerable and disillusioned. But even this is often times necessary for some individuals in which to awaken to their own truths, divinity and potential. So much of what is occurring globally with our Mother Earth’s rebirth and ascension process is being felt by us individually through our physical bodies and truly stirring up the karmic energies, kundalini and alchemical fires within each of us.

That is why we no longer can put off dealing with things that we’ve tried to avoid or ignore is simply because the purging going on within the Earth is also creating a massive purging within us as well mentally, emotionally, physically and karmically.  All that has weighted us down karmically and energetically, is being forced to the surface for us to deal with and release once and for all. For within the new, higher energies that are present these issues have prevented us from moving forward in the past even though we’ve dealt with so much already as it is, there were some things we were intentionally avoiding dealing with. And these are the very things that must be dealt with in order to further ascend and overcome our present difficulties and circumstances in which we may have been stuck within for quite some time now.

So many Lightworkers, have spent the past 20 plus years working on releasing and rebirthing themselves through working out a whole myriad of painful karmic and life lessons to find themselves in a place of stagnation over the course of the past several years. Trying to move forward but only able to do so in small increments. The harder we sometimes fight to move beyond our present lessons, there are always seeming to be something to drag us back down. And that is where many of us have been for a very long time stuck in the proverbial catch 22.

I have heard a lot of people recently commenting about having a lot of body aches and pains specifically in their lower back, neck and head. As well as, strange symptomatic issues that are inexplicable to modern medicine. With all the massive energy shifts and happenings on so many levels and aspects, it is intensely being felt through our chakra system. As the upper chakras are being forced open more with all the shifts we are really feeling it physically. Those who have already cleared many of the chakras are mainly feeling them in those that are still blocked and those that are being forced open due to the higher energies being transmitted and pouring into the Earth and all of creation at this time.

This is one of the primary reasons we should eagerly want to release those energetic karmic ties and debris that’s kept us bound so that we can avoid having even more pain and physical discomfort as the energies increase in their potency. The clearer channels we become, the less pain we will have to endure as there will be less debris and resistance as the kundalini further ascends and helps us all to ascend as well into higher realms and dimensional reality. With so many things coming full circle, it is a time of endings; but also, new beginnings. Everything we’ve embarked upon, experienced and sometimes even thought we knew has or will come up for review with many weighing of the pros and cons in order to discern what needs to be released and what needs to be integrated into our new lives and new roles as the masses begin awakening over the next few months leading up to another Cosmic Convergence; this time on the 11-11-13.

As this happens, more and more individuals will be called to be transmitters of this new energy and to help anchor everything that is pouring into us as vessels to continue helping assist Mother Earth and all of creation during this pivotal process in our evolutionary cycle. Now is the time to have faith and know that we are all here for a greater purpose than meets the eye and be willing to extend a hand when you feel drawn to be of service to another. Allowing fear to overcome us is counter-productive so is constantly dwelling on what we are lacking or do not like in our lives.

It is time to take a leap of faith, act upon divine will and be the light that you are brilliantly shining helping to lift others up with unconditional love and positive healing energy and thoughts. Be present in the moment and look with a renewed sense of  self and clearer perspective at the opportunities that are waiting for us to explore if we only open our minds to perceiving them. All time is now, what are you waiting for? No one can make the necessary changes that each of us need to make in our lives but ourselves it’s time to act now so that we can truly move forward and reap the benefits of all that we have endured along the way.

Soon we will be loosed from all that has kept us hindered, shackled and confined and be liberated from the burdens we have been carrying upon our backs for far too long. Sometimes the darkest moment is right before the piercing light comes breaking through right before the dawn of a new day. Better days are ahead don’t fret, all is apart of the process of us ascending. Just like the old adage you can’t have a rainbow without the rain. Hold fast to the knowingness that sometimes we must go through the process instead of fight against it; there’s no easy shortcut around it and that we are always stronger than we give ourselves credit for!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Abundant Harvest Special

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

This year has just whizzed right by! Time has been accelerating faster than ever. It’s hard to believe that it’s almost Autumn. Before we know it the snow will be flying and Christmas will be here! With all the challenges we all have been experiencing this year globally, as well as, individually; there is bound to be some confusion to say the least.

So many are finding themselves in predicaments that they just are not sure how to handle whether it be relationship issues, financial struggle, emotional trauma or even just the burdens of everyday life in general. These are indeed times of chaos, confusion, fear and uncertainty but it doesn’t have to be that way!

When we are fearful or dwell on our troubles it tends to amplify them bringing out our worst fears thereby creating even more problems to deal with! How many times have you found yourself in a situation in which you really didn’t know what to do, how to handle it or how to overcome the limitations and obstacles that are standing in your way?

Our lives have been filled with plenty of trials and tribulations over the last few decades if not longer. Does it seem that you’ve lost your direction in life with everything changing so fast along the way? Are you constantly finding yourself trapped in a vicious cycle that just never seems to end no matter what you do? Are you stuck in the proverbial Catch 22? Is your life spinning out of control and you have no clue where to start to pick up the pieces and start anew?

In these times of difficulty, sometimes we feel very alone in our troubles and worries. We have great ideas and intentions but sometimes we can’t seem to make leeway for all the obstacles and limitations that get in our way. And if you’re not aware of all the shifts that are occurring upon and within our planet and humanity then you probably are really unsure of what to do or if you can improve your circumstances because you’ve been stuck in a rut for so long.

Let’s face it, at this point in time, our whole economical and ecological system have become chaotic and feels unstable and as a result you’re probably feeling the effects in more ways than just your pocketbook! Physically many individuals are plagued with bizarre, inexplicable symptoms and health problems that doctors aren’t sure how to treat. They may treat a whole myriad of symptoms; but in reality it offers very little relief from the intense pain and shifting that is also occurring within our bodies just as it is within many aspects of our planet.

If any of these things ring a bell for you, then chances are you’re probably feeling like you’re losing your mind and need a little help to move beyond this stagnate state and find a way to rid yourself of a lot of turmoil and chaos that just seems to keep mounting higher and higher. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed when there are so many things happening all at once which leaves us feeling even more vulnerable and confused.

Sometimes we just need a little shove in the right direction or insight into our life in order to figure out how to ascend above our limitations. As well as, emotional support to help us through the difficult times. There are various ways to approach these problems but if you’re having to do it alone that can really pose a challenge as the world around you seems to be deteriorating quickly and changing abruptly.

Tarot is a wonderful tool that has been around for centuries that helps assist individuals in making sense of their life in it’s many aspects, cycles and transitional phases. Used for divination, it helps people find understanding through looking at their circumstances objectively in order to discover the underlying elements that are affecting their life.

As a diverse tool, there are many approaches to divining a person’s future but first we must understand and come to terms with situations within the past that may have hindered us or created a series of lessons to learn in order to move forward. All too often though, these lessons become a vicious cycle if we do not understand the process and underlying message. That’s why Tarot is so useful because it allows a person to see what has happened in the past that has brought them to this present point in time.

From there, we can accurately assess the situation with more knowledge of what the root of the problem really is thereby expanding our perception of what is truly occurring in our lives behind the scenes that is responsible for creating the very circumstances that plague us everyday. This provides us insight that can help us discover positive and creative solutions in order to truly overcome whatever obstacles may be blocking us.

Through looking at the past and present circumstances, we can get a good overview of what we can expect in the near future if we utilize the advice provided by the Tarot. It will also give us a good idea of what may occur if we continue on the same course of action which provides us with options to change the outcome based upon our thinking, attitudes and actions.

If you’re really looking for answers in your life, you don’t have to wander around aimlessly pulling straws hoping it’ll be the right one to fix all your problems anymore. That’s right, I’m here to help you find some peace in your life and find creative ways to help you achieve your goals, improve your life and regain power and control over it!

Not only do I interpret the Tarot cards, but I also apply various other principles as well to each reading. Additionally, I look at what influences are surrounding each individual energetically and physically. What elements are at play within each individual’s life and how is it affecting them? What type of alchemical processes are you going through and how is it manifesting itself (Physically, Mentally, Emotionally or Spiritually)? I also check to see where each individual is out of balance energetically and physically what health issues may be trying to influence your everyday life.

As a Healer who has trained in various styles, methods and modalities I commonly encounter individuals who are having trouble processing all that is occurring within their lives. Often times, the chakras aka energy centers are blocked by inner debris such as deep seated childhood traumas, repressed emotions, and even karmic issues that are still needing to be released. With all the upheavals that our planet is experiencing our bodies are equally feeling those transitions and shifts profoundly. If there are energetic blockages at the root of the pain and discomfort you may be feeling everyday, then you may need some help in clearing out those energy centers in order for everything to flow more smoothly; thereby removing the root of the problem and creating balance in that aspect of your life again as each chakra represents a specific aspect of our life.

The world around us is often times the mirroring image of what is going on within us, as well as, how well we are adapting to those changes. With all the volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes and other natural earth changes it is no wonder there are so many left feeling the physical and emotional effects of those very changes within our own bodies as a forced purging of all that inner debris, emotional and mental clutter that we have within us. These great shifts in the earth can create drastic shifts within us as well creating a lot of confusion and fear because of not knowing what is occurring within our bodies and life around us seems to be crumbling. Sometimes there are great emotional purgings that bring to the surface thoughts and feelings that stem from the past or even other past lives including the cellular memory of this planet, as well as, that of the collective consciousness of mankind. This can be frighting and if you don’t understand the process that is occurring then it can really seem overwhelming and instill a lot of fear which only intensifies what is happening. But this is all an illusion as is many things within our lives and this alchemical process breaks everything down in order to transform us from within and awaken us to our divinity, purpose and potential.

These events are typically termed Dark Night’s of the Soul and are a known phenomenon throughout the centuries and while it can be the most frightening experience of your life, it can also be the most liberating moment as well. Sometimes we need help getting through these processes and as a Kundalini Facilitator, Ordained Minister and Metis I help assist individuals who are having these experiences to find understanding and to ease the discomfort often times associated with this difficult process. And having someone to help CAN make all the difference in the world!

Darkness of Night

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

Darkness of Night
by Akia Winterhawk

I have walked through the shadows of darkness in search of the light. Many places my journey has taken me both near and far. I have seen within the Great Smoking Mirror, a reflection of myself. The parts of me that are filled with pain and anguish that lie hidden
in the dark.

I saw within the mirror of these places that had been left hidden, their influences thwarting my efforts at reaching the light. I saw things within that I did not recognize for they had been transformed by the negativity and now were like a vampire draining my life; keeping me further from the light.

Within the shadows I became lost amongst these things that were no longer what they once appeared as I searched deeper into the night. Corridors and places I never knew existed I found in the darkness within that tunneled around in labyrinths meant to confuse my vision in the darkness of night.

Scared and fleeting, I tried to run. But to where? There was no where in sight but more perplexing confusion deep within the night. I was lost and deeper than I had ever journeyed before; I felt no escape from the darkness of night.

I began to panic but that only made it harder to navigate so I did the only thing I knew to do and that was to cry. Bellowing deep within the tears came rushing by from deep within the night. The darkness surrounding me in every direction how could I make it out alive?

Then far into the distance, a glimmering of light. Blinking back the tears to clear my eyes to see if I had seen it right. So far away it appeared; how could I possibly make it there within the darkness of night?

Still confused and uncertain, I sat down for awhile to figure out what to do in order to reach the light. My heart cried out heavily at the obstacles that were between me and the light. I felt no one could save me from the darkness of night. Somehow, the river of tears began to subside and my mind was fixated on the light that shown deep within the darkness of night.

I tried to run but I fell onto my knees amidst the darkness of night. Not knowing what to do in order to pass through this barrier between me and the light. I began to crawl like a child within the darkness of night. I found debris that was blocking the way between me and the light. What was I to do so that I could be nearer to the light?

I found things I had forgotten, that were tucked deep inside the darkness of night. Emotions, pain and strife that I had never dealt with and had tucked them deep inside. And nothing was more important at this moment but to reach the light within the darkness of night.

I tried to crawl over them but the debris was too high. I began to panic but that did no good and then it donned on me, that I must work through these things hidden inside to release them from the darkness of night. So many things I had hidden within that became filled with the darkness of night. But how could this be for I am a good and decent person on the inside? I thought for a what seemed like hours in the darkness of night of how I allowed these things to fill me inside.

The more I thought and began to realize the small things I had ignored and repressed had built up strongly in the darkness of night. Fueled by their negative energy laying stagnated deep inside.

Crawling through the bowels of darkness, striving for the light, One-by-One, I experienced these things hidden within the darkness of night. How long must I wade through all this debris before I can touch the light?

Day-by-Day, Night-by-Night, deep within I was searching within the darkness of night. Trying to release the debris that kept me from reaching the light. Days stretched into weeks and months as I worked on releasing the darkness of night. Years later still seeking the light. But I no longer needed to crawl as the debris became less and less within the darkness of night.

One day, I began to notice how much stronger I had become sifting through and removing the clutter deep within the night. The light I was seeking was beginning to appear more bright. How much longer must I remain within the darkness of night until I am one with the light?

Understanding The Process

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

From the Desk of:
Akia Winterhawk

August 8, 2013

My Dearest Friends and Spiritual Family,

Time away from the “norm” provides one the means to utilize their mind’s and energy in other ways thus allowing space for expansion to occur if one chooses to seek understanding during transitional phases and life situations that are unclear. There is always room for expanding the mind, as well as, seeking the answers from deep within of what you are not able to understand upon your path.

Often times, synchronicity shows itself quite profoundly with it’s perfection of timing. Of these things I have witnessed time and time again; as for meI see this as a good sign that things are becoming more balanced and smoother flowing.

The mind is in a different mindset when it is able to expand and once you become disciplined enough in yourself to make that happen, at any moment that you call the ability to expand your consciousness into many different levels simultaneously and acknowledge the only limitations you have are those you place upon yourself; then utilizing your abilities becomes much more natural because they assist in the expansion of all levels of consciousness. As well as, become amplified in the pure radiance of higher vibrational energy.

Think of each situation you have within your life as being that of a tree. Let’s take each individual aspect of your life and apply it to the root system of that tree. Each aspect has many facets to it and all make up the entirety of the whole. Each aspect holds within it a lesson to be learned. Each aspect is a single root that branches off into many directions and thus offers many viewpoints in which to assist you in discerning what lesson is being presented.

From breaking each lesson down into it’s simplest form via the elemental factors and influences that surround it then one can find the original intent of such lessons. This is an alchemical way of breaking things down to their simplest form. By allowing ourselves the ability to view things in such a way, we increase our ability to see beyond what is presented and find the true reasons for things that occur within our lives.

Now, with that all being said, I have been watching this most awesome spider that’s outside my window and I have noticed that sometimes she has to make 2 or 3 webs over because of bugs, debris or wind knocking it down. She usually makes various sizes and designs. No matter what, this poor spider was always right on task. Then one day it donned on me the lesson being presented. “No matter what life throws your way, you always have the ability to redesign it to your liking.” We are truly the dreamweavers of our own destiny. And Always each of us stand in the center of the Universe at ALL times.

I thought to myself just one more way that nature reminds us of things through it’s simplicity and how it’s beauty speaks to us in ways that words cannot describe. Everything we need to know is always reflecting back to us but all too often we do not perceive it as such.

Yes, things from time-to-time do jump out at us to catch our attention when we’ve not been paying attention, but word to the wise, the more you pay attention, the far more you will be able to experience because you will open your mind to the possibility of seeing signs and insightful information in the world around you. I would not share this with you if it were or could not be beneficial as I live by these techniques every second of every day.

Of course, what works for me may not necessarily work for you, but it’s always good to try various techniques and discern what works best for you. More and more we are beginning to see natural processes of cleansing and purification spreading throughout the world. This too can be greatly felt in our physical bodies with a lot of symptomatic problems surfacing or growing in intensity as we accelerate into higher vibrational levels and dimensional levels of awareness. Kundalini is not only stirred but she has been rapidly making her way upwards at insane speeds clearing everything in it’s way!

Understand that in order for us to have the “new” we must get rid of the “old” and cleansing and rebirth are the only ways in which to accomplish that task. One cannot truly ascend unless they take the necessary steps in order to ready the body, mind and spirit for ascension to occur. Just like one cannot run before they learn to walk.

The darkness and destructiveness occurring around us also is a reflection of what is occurring within us. Our lives lead us down a path that brings us to understand hardship and pain. These are the two catalysts that teach the greatest of lessons. Just like the light at the end of the tunnel; these hardships and pain we feel on many levels will give way to healing, immeasurable love and light.

We all walk our own individual Trail of Tears in our own way. It is through this walk that we learn who we truly are and that above all things no matter what happens to us our spirit is never broken. We never give up hope of a brighter and more peace-filled way of life for all people!

As some of us may have come to understand that part of our purpose is to integrate our spiritual essence into our physical body in the Here and Now operating simultaneously between the two aspects. If that is the case, it’s no wonder we endure such brutal cleansing how else could our most sacred part of us that is of perfection be housed in such unclean vessels?

We are all definitely experiencing very confusing energy with all the massive cleansing we have been enduring. Honor it and know that it serves a far greater purpose and it will have been worth the pain of rebirth. We are always being reborn each day offering us a new beginning. If you are not experiencing life the way you feel you should, only you and you alone have the power to change that. Instead of trying to change others, change the way you react to people and situations. Change how you perceive things and look at them from a different light. You might be surprised at what you may find.

As we all know, our vision does tend to get blurred and we cannot always see clearly what is being presented to us at the time. Therefore allow yourself to expand your mind into seeing things from a different perspective and from many angles, directions and influential factors. As Majestic Eagle cries out for us to look beyond the horizon without limitations in any situation. We must also learn to see beyond the illusions.

Anyway, these are the “thoughts of the day” if you so wish to consider it as such. I wanted to touch base with everyone and welcome the newest subscribers to the Family. I offer love and blessings to those in need during this difficult time. My heart goes out to the families who are dealing with natural disasters abroad and those who are lost and confused upon their paths may you all find protection, unconditional love, sustenance and guidance to light your way.

 

Much Love & Many Blessings,

When one is ascending it should come as no surprise that we also tend to surface latent diseases and other health issues as a direct result. However, this is a sign that one has reached very deep levels of the Self in order for you to even tap into the DNA that harnesses these “aspects from the past”. When I say that I mean illnesses and diseases, plagues, bacteria, you name it whatever we have suffered in other lifetimes is likely to find itself surfacing in this lifetime.

Of course, then that makes one question the whole ascension process feeling as if it is too much pain to endure and our own individual world and reflective mirror that represents our lives in all it’s aspects seems to be turned upside down and inside out. And truthfully these are just a smidgeon of the effects of the Ascensionary process on our physical body.

Although our physical body can experience the symptoms of these diseases and plagues, usually it is short-term as in it’s a means to expand our awareness into looking into the root of the issue…where did it originate from? During my own personal ascension, I went through about 6 weeks worth of Dark Nights of the Soul which is what all that pain and suffering is about and because of the incessant need to analyze everything sometimes we tend to intensify our own suffering. There were times that I felt like I had one of the biblical plagues, a time when I exhibited signs and symptoms of spinal meningitis, stroke (actually turned blue twice that night), and a whole myriad of other afflictions until finally the celestial coyote tricked me into seeing through the illusions. Not just the illusion of Life as we have known it through our upbringings, our governments, our religious figures. But an exhilarating journey through the cosmos itself!

Society as a whole has aided in the great illusion that overshadows mankind so that it cannot see clearly, instead it just becomes more controlled and submissive to it’s power. But also, the self-created illusions, those we place upon ourselves through our thoughts, through our attitudes, our following information that is not necessarily correct (sometimes appears that way at the given time but all is in accordance for aligning things to bring about your own individual spontaneous awakening).

So many people fall into the trap of believing that life is all about suffering ourselves in dedication and devotion that it is just our lot in life to suffer because of us being such spiritual people who are aware of our divine origins. However, this honestly is bullshit. It is in the process of suffering most usually we “slip through the crack” and awaken. However, if one doesn’t understand the purpose of that “pressure and affliction” they can easily send themselves into a state of total madness or intensifying the effects to the point that it does physical harm. That is why in traditional times when one goes through these types of purifications there usually was a knowledgeable Shaman present to help keep you from hurting yourself and from going over the deep end.

When you are going through this stage of the process of Ascension you quite literally are being purified by the fire and the spirit. Every toxin that has ever existed within your physical body, emotional body, mental body and etheric body is being released so that you may be made clean and pure. Once you realize what all the physical stuff really is pointing to then you will begin to see beyond the veil into your own evolution since the beginning of time throughout the ages; along with a myriad of other hidden aspects that are specific for you and your own understanding.

Everything we have experienced up until now has been a mere illusion to bring you to this point in time in which you would be more in alignment with the moment of your awakening. Sure you’ve had small awakenings throughout the years but this one is far more intense than you can even begin to imagine! It is through our pain we experience the pleasure of nirvana but once you’ve been granted your ascension there will be no pain, your body will be literally light as a feather, you will appear younger, feel completely different once you integrate all of yourself into the here and now. It is through the journey through your evolution that helps you to regain those fragmented aspects of self which is why there is so much surfacing all at once to help you access them so you can anchor them into your physical body.

It would be my suggestion for you to construct a medicine wheel within your living room or outside if possible temporarily for you to go through your awakening, however, I’d have someone there with you encase you’d have any physical distress needing medical attention and to keep you aware that what you are experiencing is apart of the process and you have control over the process more than you realize. You can either ride the wave or send yourself to the hospital is the bottom line. Matter of fact, when I went through mine, I was holding a purification lodge for 7 other people. It lasted for about a week. One had to be taken for emergency gall bladder surgery, another one a week later had to be rushed for emergency appendix surgery; as both of those individuals they were not able to physically handle the ascension flame.

When you are undergoing the actual ascension, the kundalini is literally devouring everything within you and the fire of the ascension flame is burning away everything in it’s path. And they wonder why people spontaneously combust! This is why, their core bodies got too hot during the ascensionary process, now had those situations been monitored by a knowledgeable shaman that could have been averted however, most of those individuals didn’t know or understand that’s what was happening so they panicked or were unable to acclimate to the circumstances.

Fear and Panic are the enemy especially during the Dark Nights of the Soul, the purpose of the dark nights is to face your fears and find your own light deep within the shadowy side of self. Before we can ascend into the light and carry the ascension flame on earth, we must face the darkness and the shadows, the illusions, fears, etc. transmutation is the name of the game!

Consider a butterfly’s life cycle. Right now you are in the cocoon awaiting time to become a chrysalis, then a nymph and finally emerging into a beautiful butterfly fully able to fly on your own. The seasons push you into the chrysalis stage. I would bargain to say that either by your birthday or shortly thereafter you will have gone through a great quickening and experience one of several “mini” spontaneous awakenings.

Many people have been put in the mental ward for going through the ascension because the medical community doesn’t understand nor care to see the connection between our spiritual path’s and our physical bodies. Some people refer to this as bipolar mania sometimes. But fact is put yourself in someone else’s shoes who you know understands the true meaning of the word suffering one of our greatest ascended masters Jesus.

Think of it this way, all of your pain is you carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders and it is time for you to release all that is within you and surrender to the Creator to become a pure divine channel of light. I know that’s what you’ve been trying to do all along but you weren’t seeing the “big” picture just bits and pieces of it.

I could kick my own self in the ass knowing that the opportunity to ascend has been there so many times but I didn’t recognize it nor see it as such and alas it didn’t happen until things were in alignment. Like a phoenix rising, only through surrender and release can we truly become pure vessels for in reality, we been training all of our lives for this we just didn’t know/see it because we all have blinders over our eyes until we ascend and then can truly see the illusion and how enormous it really is! But also this leads to your potential, purpose and true authentic self.

I can only give you a limited amount of information as it is a unique experience. Here’s a quote for you to meditate upon:

“I am the question and the allegory for certain truths yet just as easily convey a personal message that only you can understand”

Basically in a nutshell, throughout the entire process I realized and I think it is true as it is for so many we are all stigmatics. That’s right, we all carry the marks of the Stigmata. Even if we don’t actually believe or follow in Christianity, it is Christ Consciousness that we are all trying to tap into and that only is possible by tapping into our truest divine self and potential through awakening all 12 strands of our DNA. You may say well I don’t bleed through my hands or feet, etc. It doesn’t matter, there were really 5,430 (or something like that) actual wounds of Christ (found info through researching Saint Brigit who was the first to have the Stigmata and bring the knowledge of it’s purpose to the world) so it’s not all about “blood” par say as in that’s the only way we can bear the stigmata. Think of it this way, all of us women are natural stigmatics we all bleed and the blood of life flows from us every month as a means to honor life but how many women do you know actually understand, honor and respect the origins of that connection? It’s far greater than that but that’s a start to point you in the right direction that will further propel you towards your awakening. Sometimes it isn’t until we discover certain keywords or things that spark the ascension flame and spontaneous awakening.

Here’s a prayer for you to help you at this time. It’s called the Prayer of Jabez:

“Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain; And God granted his request.”

This is a very powerful prayer that will help and draws the Ascension Council nearby to see if you are a candidate for the ascension so that you can attend the Mystery Schools on the Spiritual realm. It helps to prepare you for the event should you be accepted at this time.

A good book to check into would be Dossier of the Ascension by Serapis Bey; he is the Ascended Master of Luxor Temple in Egypt. There are other temples you could be involved in but that book would be a good start and read for anyone upon the spiritual path to enlightenment. It was written by Mark & Elizabeth Prophet. You can probably find it online somewhere for free to read. The book itself is only like 6 dollars if you want to purchase it but before you do all that I’d suggest googling it online and see if you can find a copy of it maybe even on http://sacred-texts.com.

I believe that what has been spoken is what is needed and now it’s up to each of you to look between the veil and see beyond the illusions for yourself. For all is not what it appears to be. That is all that has flowed through me to channel to you in regards to this. I know that what was needed to be said has come forth. And it is with this I offer my love and hope that this will serve to help you see beyond the horizon!

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Remaining Above The Fray

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

We are in a very pivotal time upon our planet. There are so many things going on around us in every direction, angle, level and aspect. That its easy to get confused, as well as, sometimes caught up in the drama, panic and fear of worldly news and events that provide a negative tone within our consciousness. They bring us down, make us feel depressed and often times even helpless as many empath’s feel guilty when they are not able to ease someone’s suffering. And with the current state of things, there’s plenty of suffering going on within all levels of society and the world at large.

How do we remain above the fray and help others to do the same? That seems like a tough question when looking around there’s so much “bad stuff” going on and the reality of the condition of our planet and humanity as a whole are in. May even seem like a daunting task thats nearly impossible for one person to make that much of a difference. That is looking at things from a limited point of view, from our old-outdated victim consciousness of the 3D reality making us feel hopeless and incompetent to change our distressing circumstances.

We do not have to feel helpless or inadequate because of the circumstances! We are meant to feel empowered and channel the hope, light and vision of a peaceful world into humanity’s consciousness. We are the Lightworkers and Wayshowers who have agreed to take on this responsibility to help continue lifting this planet and it’s people upwards. For this is our purpose and vow to never give up; always imbuing the collective consciousness of everyone with positive healing energy, love and light. Now more than ever before, our thoughts, prayers and love needs to be utilized for the good of the whole!

How do we remain above the fray? We remember our divine purpose and the beauty of life itself. The precious balance that exists that allows us all to exist and experience this dimensional reality in a physical way. We must all believe in the power of hope, light, love and prayer and invoke the healing of our planet and all of creation. Showering everything and everyone with positive healing thoughts and prayers of restoration and balance. Believe in the awakening of mankind to it’s true divinity and purpose and the unlimited potential of our world’s resources being made freely available to us all. Believe and have faith in the healing of disease, pain and suffering of each individual thing within creation.

Know that for everything there is a reason and that in the end hindrances usually prove to be blessings in disguise. With all that is occurring around us, it’s easy to get stuck in the midsts of chaos and craziness; whether it’s within our own lives, community or the world at large. Sometimes the chaos is imperative to indicate where changes need to be made and things are not in perfect alignment with us. Often times, it’s a means to help us deal with whatever issues we’ve been putting off or avoiding that need to be resolved in order to move forward in some way within our lives.

The important thing to remember is that it’s okay to sometimes get sidetracked by our life circumstances. Don’t be too hard or judge yourself harshly; it happens to everyone at some point or another and often many times over. When this does occur and you recognize that you’ve been sucked back into the 3D mentality of lack and limitation that is when it’s imperative that you raise your vibration once again to reflect a higher state of beingness. Pouring out positive, loving, healing energy to your situation and that of the whole of humanity to also raise above the fray.

In every moment that we can lend a hand, an ear, a shoulder to another person or thing of creation we in essence help ourselves. Since the Universal Law of Abundance states that whatever we put out and focus upon is what we shall also reap. Instead of worrying about this or that, instead imbue whatever the situation is with love, light, healing, clarity, truth and peace. Afterwards, send the same thoughts of love, light, healing, clarity, truth and peace into the world. Into every living organism upon this planet and the Universal Life Force; all that exists within creation. The more we shower the planet and it’s people with love, the more their consciousness will be releasing hate and division of it’s people. The more we shower the planet with light, the less lies, deceit and greed can remain hidden and will ultimately shine a light on the truth bringing clarity to our conscious awareness. The more we shower the planet with healing energy, thoughts and prayers the less disease, sickness and pain will be experienced and felt.

What once were only a few who carried the flame within their hearts to reignite the world’s sense of hope has now grown into a large number of individuals. If you’re reading this message, then you too are a part of the process of helping humanity to awaken and be a beacon of love, light and healing as well. Take a few minutes everyday to send loving energy to the world and in doing so it will help. The more and more people of like mind gather in their thoughts, energy and prayers, the more powerful those thoughts, energy and prayers become. Eventually, we’ll awaken enough of humanity to not only feel the difference but also see the difference! As they say, patience is a virtue and after all we’ve endured during the course of humanity’s evolution, surely to see the rewards for our efforts are not that far off into the distant future!

We’ve seen so much growth and spiritual advancement just in the last 20 years alone, so it should be very interesting to see the bigger changes coming to us that will help further shift humanity’s consciousness to a more light-filled and positive flow. The higher we all ascend in consciousness the better off our world will be. The more we ascend in our awareness of our divinity and roles, the better off our world will be. We all have more of a choice in the matters pertaining to our world than we realize and it all begins within the hearts of each individual. And with that, I leave you with this prayer:

 

With my wings to gently guide you,
My heart to show you the way;
In all things, may you come to know who and what you truly are.
Be blessed with peace, love, light, healing, harmony,
Balance, understanding, happiness & prosperity”

 

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

1. Changing sleep patterns: restlessness, hot feet, waking up two or three times a night. Feeling tired after you wake up and sleepy off and on during the day. There is something called the Triad Sleep Pattern that occurs for many: you sleep for about 2-3 hours, wake up, go back to sleep for another couple of hours, wake again, and go back to sleep again. For others, the sleep requirements have changed. You can get by on less sleep. Another variation of this is what I call “black-hole sleep” — you sleep for 10 hours or more. Last year I experienced huge waves of energy running into my body from the crown. It felt good, but it kept me awake for a long time, then subsided. Now I am experiencing black-hole sleep. Advice: Get used to it. Make peace with it and dont worry about getting enough sleep (which often causes more insomnia). You will be able to make it through the day if you hold thoughts of getting just what you need. You can also request your Higher Power to give you a break now and then and give you a good, deep nights sleep. If you cant go back to sleep right away, use the waking moments to meditate, read poetry, write in your journal or look at the moon. Your body will adjust to the new pattern. And–if you are sleeping a lot, then don’t worry about it. Your body needs the rest.

2. Activity at the crown of the head: Tingling, itching, prickly, crawling sensations along the scalp and/or down the spine. A sense of energy vibrating on top of the head, as if energy is erupting from the head in a shower. Also the sensation of energy pouring in through the crown, described as “sprinkles”. This may also be experienced as pressure on the crown, as if someone is pushing his/her finger into the center of your head. As I mentioned in #1, I have been experiencing huge downloads of energy through the crown. In the past, I have felt more generalized pressure, as if my head is in a gentle vise. One man related that his hair stood on end and his body was covered with goose bumps. Advice: This is nothing to be alarmed about. What you are experiencing is an opening of the crown chakra. The sensations mean that you are opening up to receive divine energy.

3. Sudden waves of emotion: Crying at the drop of a hat. Feeling suddenly angry or sad with little provocation. Or inexplicably depressed. Then very happy. Emotional roller coaster. There is often a pressure or sense of emotions congested in the heart chakra (the middle of the chest). Your heart chakra is opening up! This is not to be confused with the heart, which is located to the left of the heart chakra. Advice: Accept your feelings as they come up and let them go. Go directly to your heart chakra and feel the emotion. Expand it outward to your all your fields and breathe deeply from the belly all the way up to your upper chest. Just feel the feeling and let it evaporate on its own. Dont direct the emotions at anyone. You are cleaning out your past. If you want some help with this, say out loud that you intend to release all these old issues and ask your Higher Power to help you. You can also ask Grace Elohim to help you release with ease and gentleness. Be grateful that your body is releasing these emotions and not holding onto them inside where they can do harm. One source suggests that depression is linked to letting go of relationships to people, work, etc. that no longer match us and our frequencies. When we feel guilty about letting go of these relationships, depression helps us medicate that pain.

4. Old “stuff” seems to be coming up, as described above, and the people with whom you need to work it out (or their clones) appear in your life. Completion issues. Or perhaps you need to work through issues of self-worth, abundance, creativity, addictions, etc. The resources or people you need to help you move through these issues start to appear. Advice: Same as #3. Additionally, dont get too involved in analyzing these issues. Examining them too much will simply cycle you back through them over and over again at deeper and deeper levels. Get professional help if you need to and walk through it. Do not try to avoid them or disassociate yourself from them. Embrace whatever comes up and thank it for helping you move ahead. Thank your Higher Power for giving you the opportunity to release these issues. Remember, you dont want these issues to stay stuck in your body.

5. Changes in weight: The weight gain in the US population is phenomenal. Other people may be losing weight. We often gain weight because many fears we have suppressed are now coming up to the surface to be healed. We react by building up a defense. We also attempt to ground ourselves or provide bulk against increasing frequencies in our bodies. Advice: Dont freak out, but just accept it as a symptom of where you are right now. You will release/gain the weight when all your fears have been integrated. Release your anxiety about this. Then you might find it easier to lose/gain the weight eventually. Exercise. Before eating, try this: Sit at the table with an attractive place setting. Light a candle. Enjoy how the food looks. Place your dominant hand over your heart and bless the food. Tell your body that you are going to use the food to richly nourish it, but that you are not going to use the food to fulfill your emotional hungers. Then pass your hand from left to right over the food and bless it. You may notice that the food feels warm to your hand even if the food is cold– I like to think that the food is good for me when it feels warm and nourishing to my hand. I have also noticed that when I practice blessing the food, I dont eat as much. It is important not to let yourself off the hook when you forget to bless the food before you eat. If Ive forgotten and Ive nearly finished eating, I bless the food anyway. That way I dont slip out of the habit. Another thing you can do is to stay present while eating — dont watch TV or read. Heartily enjoy what blessings are before you.

6. Changes in eating habits: Strange cravings and odd food choices. Some find they are not as hungry as they used to be. Or hungrier. Advice: Dont deny what your body tells you it needs. If you are not sure, you might try muscle-testing before you chose a food to see if its what your body wants. Also try blessing the food as described in #5.

7. Food intolerances, allergies you never had before: As you grow more spiritual, you are more sensitive to everything around you. Your body will tell you what it can no longer tolerate, as if it, too, is sloughing off what doesnt serve it anymore. You might be cleansing yourself of toxins. Some people find they often have a white residue in their mouth, much like that of runners at the end of a race. Advice: An acupuncturist told me that this film can be removed by sloshing 2 tablespoons of cold-pressed olive oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes (dont swallow, whatever you do), then spitting it out into the toilet — not the sink, for you just removed toxins from your body and dont want them in the sink. Brush your teeth and do the same. Then clean your brush. (Sorry this is yucky, but it works.)

8. Amplification of the senses: Increased sensitivity. a. Sight: Sore eyes, blurry vision, shimmering objects, seeing glittery particles, auras around people, plants, animals, and objects. Some report seeing formerly opaque objects as transparent. When you close your eyes, you no longer see darkness, but a redness. You may also see geometric shapes or brilliant colors and pictures when eyes are closed. Colors appear more vivid — the sky might look teal or the grass an amazing green. Often I see grids running across the ground. As you become more sensitive, you may see shapes or outlines in the air, especially when the room is almost dark. Once while I was looking at the ceiling light, its form began to disappear and almost recede into the ceiling. When your eyes are open or closed, you may see white or gold shapes in your peripheral vision (these are your guides). Lately my eyes have felt excessively dry upon awakening; I have had difficulty opening them now and then. Also I have experienced sore eyes. (A sight for sore eyes — does this have new meaning?) Advice: Your vision is changing in many ways — you are experiencing new ways of seeing. Be patient. Whatever you do, do not be afraid. Hazy vision may be relieved by yawning. Drink lots of water for dryness. b. Hearing: Increased or decreased hearing. I once thought I would have to pull off the road because of the painfully amplified sound of my tires on the freeway. Other symptoms are hearing white noise in the head, beeps, tones, music or electronic patterns. Some hear water rushing, bees buzzing, whooshing, roaring or ringing. Others have what is called audio dyslexia– you cant always make out what people are saying, as if you can no longer translate your own language. Some hear strange voices in their dreams, as if someone is hovering near them. You can either ask the presence(s) to leave or ask Archangel Michael to take care of the situation. Again, there is nothing to fear. Advice: Surrender to it. Let it come through. Listen. Your ears are adjusting to new frequencies. This summer I felt the presence of two souls, who were confused or lost. They hovered around me and called my name. At first, I was frightened, then I realized who they were (my own dear departed ones, both of whom died suddenly by strokes). Believe it or not, in each case, all I had to do was tell them that I loved them and would help them change their circumstances and find a beautiful place to go. Then I guided them to the bright light, reassuring them that I would stay with them until they reached the light. (When they finally see the light, they can’t wait to get there!.) More about this in #29. c. Enhanced senses of smell, touch, and/or taste. I notice I can now smell and taste chemical additives in some foods in a rather unpleasant manner. Other food may taste absolutely wonderful. For some people, these enhancements are both delightful and distracting. You might even smell the fragrance of flowers now and then. Many of the mystics did. Enjoy it.

9. Skin eruptions: Rashes, bumps, acne, hives, warts, and shingles. Anger produces outbreaks around the mouth and chin. I had a dermatitis on my extremities for several months that accompanied healing an episode from my past. When I had worked through most of the issue, the condition was released. Advice: You may be sloughing off toxins and bringing emotions to the surface. When there is an issue to be released and you are trying to repress it, your skin will express the issue for you until you process the emotions. Work through your “stuff”. Try essential oils of geranium, rose, lemon or bergamot on the shingles lesions.

10. Episodes of intense energy which make you want to leap out of bed and into action. One person said her body seems to vibrate wildly. Followed by periods of lethargy and fatigue. The fatigue usually follows great shifts. This is a time of integration, so give into it. Advice: Roll with the nature of the energy. Dont fight it. Don’t make it the “wrong” way to feel. Be gentle with yourself. Take naps if you are tired. Write your novel if you are too energized to sleep. Take advantage of the type of energy.

11. Changes in prayer or meditation: Not feeling the same sensations as before. Not having the same experience of being in contact with Spirit. Difficulty in focusing. When I close my eyes to meditate, I have noticed a strange, spacey sensation that makes me feel lighter, less dense, and swirling with energy. Advice: You may be in more instant and constant communion with Spirit now and the sensation may therefore be altered. You will adapt to this new feeling. You are actually thinking acting in partnership with Spirit most of the time now. You may find your meditation periods shorter.

12. Power surges: All of a sudden you are heated from head to toe. It is a momentary sensation, but uncomfortable. In contrast, some people have felt inexplicably cold. I have experienced both. Even men have reported “heating up”. More recently I experience waves or currents of energy rolling through me. Sometimes the energy seems so intense when it first comes into my body that I feel a little nauseated. But if I think of the energy as divine and let go of fear, I feel wonderful and enjoy the sensation. If you are an energy worker, you may have noticed that the heat running through your hands has increased tremendously. This is good. Advice: If you are uncomfortable, ask your Higher Power, that if it be for your best and highest good, to turn down/up the temperature a bit.

13. A range of physical manifestations: Intense energy in the hands and/or feet, aches in the bones, headaches, backaches, neck pains, flu-like symptoms (this is called vibrational flu), digestive problems, muscular spasms or cramps, racing heartbeat, chest pains and infections, increased mucous, changes in sexual desire, numbness or pain in the limbs, and involuntary vocalizations or bodily movements. Some of us have even had old conditions from childhood reappear briefly for healing. Advice: Remember what I said about seeking medical help if you need it! If you have determined that this is not a medical condition, relax in the realization that it is only temporary.

14. Looking younger: Yippee! As you clear emotional issues and release limiting beliefs and heavy baggage from the past, you are actually lighter. Your frequency is higher. You love yourself and life more. You begin to resemble the perfect you that you really are. Some of my friends report that their hair is growing darker (as opposed to gray) or blonder. I notice my face changes from moment to moment.

15. Vivid dreams: Sometimes the dreams are so real that you wake up confused. You may even have lucid dreams in which you are in control. Many dreams may be mystical or carry messages for you. And in some dreams, you just know that you are not “dreaming” — that what is happening is somehow real. Advice: You will remember what is important for you to remember. Dont force anything. Above all, stay out of fear.

16. Events that completely alter your life: death, divorce, change in job status, loss of home, illness, and/or other catastrophes — sometimes several at once! Forces that cause you to slow down, simplify, change, re-examine who you are and what your life means to you. Forces that you cannot ignore. Forces that cause you release your attachments. Forces that awaken your sense of love and compassion for all.

17. A desire to break free from restrictive patterns, life-draining jobs, consumptive lifestyles, and toxic people or situations: You feel a compelling need to “find yourself” and your life purpose — now! You want to be creative and free to be who you really are. You might find yourself drawn to the arts and nature. You want to unclutter yourself from things and people that no longer serve you. Advice: Do it! Don’t be afraid. Your soul is calling to you to do this.

18. Emotional and mental confusion: A feeling that you need to get your life straightened out–it feels like a mess. But at the same time you feel chaotic and unable to focus. See #45. Advice: Put your ear to your heart and your own discernment will follow.

19. Introspection, solitude and loss of interest in more extraverted activities: This stage has come as a surprise to many extraverts who formerly saw themselves as outgoing and involved. They say, “I dont know why, but I dont like to go out as much as before.”

20. Creativity bursts: Receiving images, ideas, music, and other creative inspirations at an often overwhelming rate. Advice: At least record these inspirations, for Spirit is speaking to you about how you might fulfill your purpose and contribute to the healing of the planet. Recently, I have scheduled days on my calendar just for my creative work. Making a space for something to happen increases the creative flow. Put creativity first in your life!

21. A perception that time is accelerating: It seems that way because you have had so many changes introduced into your life at an unprecedented rate. The number of changes seems to be growing. Sometimes time is collapsing, so you feel like there are big time gaps in your day. Our perception of time-space is being altered. Advice: Breaking your day up into appointments and time segments increases the sense of acceleration .You can slow time down by relaxing into the present moment and paying attention to whats at hand, not anticipating whats ahead. Slow down and tell yourself that you have plenty of time. Ask your Higher Power to help you. Keep your focus on the present. Try to flow from one activity to the next. Stay tuned to your inner guidance. You can also warp time by asking for it. Next time you feel rushed, say, “Time warp, please. I need some more time to —–.” Then relax.

22. A sense of impendingness: There is a feeling that something is about to happen. This can create anxiety. Advice: There is nothing to worry about. Things are definitely happening, but anxiety only creates more problems for you. All your thoughts — positive or negative– are prayers. There is nothing to fear.

23. Impatience: You know better, but sometimes you cant help it. You want to get on with what seems to be coming your way. Uncertainty is not comfortable. Advice: Learn to live with the uncertainty, knowing that nothing comes to you until you are ready. Impatience is really a lack of trust, especially trust in your Higher Power. When you focus on the present, you will experience miracles — yes, even in traffic.

24. A deep yearning for meaning, purpose, spiritual connection, and revelation: Perhaps an interest in the spiritual for the first time in your life. “Constant craving”, as k.d. lang says. The material world cannot fulfill this longing. Advice: Follow your heart and the way will open up for you.

25. A feeling that you are somehow different: A disquieting sense that everything in your life feels new and altered, that you have left your old self behind. You have. You are much greater than you can possibly imagine.

26. “Teachers” appear everywhere with perfect timing to help you on your spiritual journey: people, books, movies, events, Mother Nature, etc. Teachers may appear to be negative or positive when you are trapped in polarity thinking, but, from a transcendent perspective, they are always perfect. Just what you need to learn from and move on. By the way, we never get more than we are ready to master. Each challenge presents us with an opportunity to show our mastery in passing through it.

27. You find a spiritual track that makes sense to you and “speaks to you” at the most profound levels. Suddenly you are gaining a perspective that you would never have considered before. You hunger to know more. You read, share with others, ask questions, and go inside to discover more about who you are and why you are here

28. You are moving through learning and personal issues at a rapid pace: You sense that you are “getting it” quite readily. Advice: Keep remembering that things will come to you when they are ready to be healed. Not sooner. Deal with whatever comes up with courage and you will move through the issues rapidly.

29. Invisible presences: Here is the woo-woo stuff. Some people report feeling surrounded by beings at night or having the sensation of being touched or talked to. Often they will wake with a start. Some also feel their body or bed vibrate. The vibrations are caused by energetic changes after emotional clearing has taken place. Advice: This is a sensitive topic, but you may feel better blessing your bed and space around it before you sleep. I rest assured that I am surrounded only by the most magnificent spiritual entities and am always safe in Gods care. Sometimes, however, the fear gets to me, and I call in Archangel Michael and/or Archangel Uriel. I dont beat myself up for being afraid sometimes. I forgive myself for not always sovereign at 3:00 a.m.

30. Portents, visions, “illusions”, numbers, and symbols: Seeing things that have spiritual importance for you. Noticing how numbers appear synchronistically in your awareness. Everything has a message if you take the time to look. I enjoy the experience of “getting the messages.” What fun!

31. Increased integrity: You realize that it is time for you to seek and speak your truth. It suddenly seems important for you to become more authentic, more yourself. You may have to say “no” to people whom you have tried to please in the past. You may find it intolerable to stay in a marriage or job or place that doesnt support who you are. You may also find there is nowhere to hide, no secrets to keep anymore. Honesty becomes important in all your relationships. Advice: Listen to your heart. If your guidance tells you not to do something, speak up and take action. Say “no”. Likewise, you must also say “yes” to that which compels you. You must risk displeasing others without guilt in order to attain spiritual sovereignty.

32. Harmony with seasons and cycles: You are becoming more tuned to the seasons, the phases of the moon and natural cycles. More awareness of your place in the natural world. A stronger connection to the earth.

33. Electrical and mechanical malfunctions: When you are around, light bulbs flicker, the computer locks up, or the radio goes haywire. Advice: Call on your angels, guides, or Grace Elohim to fix it or put up a field of protection of light around the machine. Surround your car with blue light. Laugh.

34. Increased synchronicity and many small miracles: Look for more of these. Advice: Synchronistic events tell you if you are heading in the right direction or making the correct choices. Honor these clues and you cannot go astray. Spirit uses synchronicity to communicate to you. Thats when you begin to experience daily miracles. See #30.

35. Increased intuitive abilities and altered states of consciousness: Thinking of someone and immediately hearing from them. More synchronicities. Having sudden insights about patterns or events from the past. Clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and other psychic phenomena. Intensified sensitivity and knowing. Awareness of ones essence and that of others. Channeling angelic and Christ-consciousness energies.

36. Communication with Spirit: Contact with angels, spirit guides, and other divine entities. Channeling. More and more people seem to be given this opportunity. Feeling inspiration and downloading information that takes form as writing, painting, ideas, communications, dance, etc.

37. A sense of Oneness with all: A direct experience of this Wholeness. Transcendent awareness. Being flooded with compassion and love for all life. Compassionate detachment or unconditional love for all is what lifts us up to higher levels of consciousness and joy.

38. Moments of joy and bliss:. A deep abiding sense of peace and knowing that you are never alone.

39. Integration: You become emotionally, psychologically, physically, and spiritually stronger and clearer. You feel as if you are in alignment with your Higher Self.

40. Living your purpose: You know you are finally doing what you came to earth for. New skills and gifts are emerging, especially healing ones. Your life/work experiences are now converging and starting to make sense. You are finally going to use them all. Advice: Listen to your heart. Your passion leads you to where you must go. Go within and ask your Higher Power, “What is it you would have me do?” Watch for synchronicities. Listen.

41. Feeling closer to animals, rocks, and plants: To some people, animals now seem to be more “human” in their behavior. Wild animals are less afraid. Plants respond to your love and attention more than ever. Some may even have messages for you. Stones and rocks emit energies that you can feel. Many seem to have healing or clearing properties.

42. Seeing beings of other dimensions: The veil between dimensions is thinner, so it is not surprising. Advice: Just stay in your sovereignty. You are more powerful than you can ever imagine, so do not entertain fear. Ask your guides for help if you slip into fear. Lately, I have been experiencing the presence of dear ones who have transitioned and, due to the nature of their deaths, were confused as to where they were. I helped them realize they had passed away and assisted them in going towards the Light. It is very simple to do — just tell them you will stay with them until they find it. Once they see the Light and start moving towards it, they can’t wait to get there. Because I use a pendulum to talk to them, I can tell when they reach the Light — the pendulum comes to a dead stop.

43. Seeing a persons true form or seeing loved ones with a different face — past life or parallel life. Or seeing someone before you actually meet him/her.

44. Physically manifesting thoughts and desires more quickly and efficiently. Advice: Monitor your thoughts. All thoughts are prayers. Be careful what you ask for.

45. Left -brain fogginess: Your psychic abilities, your intuitive knowing, your feeling and compassion, your ability to experience your body, your visioning, your expressiveness all emanate from the right brain. In order for this side of the brain to develop more fully, the left brain must shut down a little bit. Normally the left-hemispheres capacity for order, organization, structure, linear sequencing, analysis, evaluation, precision, focus, problem-solving, and mathematics dominate our often less-valued right brain. What results are memory lapses, placing words in the wrong sequence, inability or no desire to read for very long, inability to focus; forgetting what you are just about to say; impatience with linear forms of communication (audio or written formats); a feeling of spaciness, being scattered; losing interest in research or complex information; feeling bombarded with words and talk and information; and a reluctance to write. Sometimes you feel dull and have no interest in analysis, lively intellectual discussion, or investigation. On the other hand, you might find yourself drawn to the sensate: videos, magazines with photos, beautiful artwork, movies, music, sculpting, painting, being with people, dancing, gardening, walking, and other kinesthetic forms of expression. You may search for spiritual content, even science fiction. Advice: You may discover that if you allow your heart and your right brain to lead you, the left will then be activated appropriately to support you. And someday we will be well-balanced, using both hemispheres with mastery.

46. Dizziness: This occurs when you are ungrounded. Perhaps you have just cleared a big emotional issue and your body is adjusting to your “lighter” state. Advice: Ground yourself by eating protein. Sometimes “comfort food” feels right. Dont make any food right or wrong for you. Use your guidance to know what you need at any given moment. Take your shoes off and put your feet in the grass for a couple of minutes.

47. Falling, having accidents, breaking bones: Your body is not grounded or perhaps your life is out of balance. Or your body may be telling you to slow down, examine certain aspects of your life, or heal certain issues. There is always a message. When I broke my ankle (twice), I understood that my ankle was taking on what I myself refused to deal with. And that was all of the above. Advice: Stay grounded by taking your shoes off and putting your feet in the grass; even better, lie down on the grass without a blanket under you. Feel the earth beneath you. Get out in nature. Slow down and pay attention. Be mindful about what you are doing. Feel your feelings when they come up. Stay in the present. Surround yourself with blue light when you are feeling shaky.

48. Heart palpitations: A racing heart usually accompanies a heart opening. It only lasts for a few moments and means that the heart is re-balancing itself after an emotional release. I had one episode that terrified me: I woke up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding. I thought it was going to come right out of my chest. It only happened once and was, I understand, a huge heart-chakra opening. But I did check it out. There is nothing wrong with my heart. Advice: Remember what I said about getting medical attention when needed. Consult your doctor about any conditions you are not comfortable with.

49. Faster hair and nail growth: More protein is being used in the body. Too bad we cant tell the body where to grow the hair and where not to grow it. (Or can we? Hmmm.)

50. A desire to find your soulmate or twin flame: More than ever before, the idea that we can have a relationship that matches who we are seems more desirable. Advice: The truth is, we have to be the kind of person we want to attract. We have to love ourselves and where we are right now before we can attract a more “perfect” mate. The work begins at home. Here is how I think it works: Hold the desire for this person in your heart, but without attachment. Expect that someday you will meet someone who is more suited to you, but let go of any expectations as to who this will be and how it will happen. Focus instead on cleaning up your own life and being the kind of person you want to be. Be happy now. Enjoy your life. Then you may see…..

51. Memories surface: Body memories, suppressed memories, images of past lives and/or parallel lives. We are healing and integrating all our “selves”, so expect to have some of these experiences. Advice. Keep in mind that it is best to recall what only what comes to mind, leave the rest alone, dont analyze everything to death (because you will be stuck in the tape loop of infinite issues to process), and feel your feelings as they come up. Ask for help from your guides.

52. Other chakra openings: a. Third-eye or brow chakra: Muscles or nerves in the forehead twitch, as if the third eye is trying to open up. Tingling feelings. Feeling energy shoot out from the third eye like a ray. b. Thymus chakra: I get a sharp pain in my thymus, about an inch or so below the V of my collarbone. It is related to the heart’s opening and to the processing of new energies coming into the body. Thumping my finger lightly on the spot often helps. c. Hand chakras: Increased vibrations, heat, energy surges in the center of the palms.

Stepping Into Our Roles As Lightworkers

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

August came in like a mighty lion with it’s intense energies and astrological configurations. Providing alignments that will heighten the 8:8 Lion’s Gateway Portal causing a thinning of the veil on that day. As well as, provide another powerful ascension wave to sweep over our planet and all of it’s inhabitants.

What we are energetically experiencing will bring these energies into fruition. Those things that we’ve been trying to manifest within our lives that have been restricted, blocked or limited due to the various planetary retrogrades. Simply put, things were not in alignment to bring forth the full culmination of these things we’ve been trying to manifest.

However, the closer we get to the Autumn Equinox, the more prominent the energies will be in helping to assist us in physically reaping the seeds we have sown over the past 9 months as we’ve been helping the Earth and all of humanity prepare to ascend more fully in their own divinity and awareness.

Over the coming weeks, there will be great energy fluctuations and astronomical events taking place that will only add to the mixture of already powerful alignments. The 8:8 also brings with it a new moon in which to focus on exactly what we would want to see manifested in our lives positively. And explore the heightened energies that will assist in further awakening humanity.

The first half of the year has provided many challenges but soon we will find those very challenges to be a thing of the past, as we ascend above these obstacles moving forward in our own personal individual evolution. The last several months brought up plenty of junk to surface for us to work through, purge and release. Showing us what was out of alignment within our lives and what areas necessitated our attention.

Providing us a sneak peak of just how powerful our thoughts really can be. And that by worrying about our circumstances it only serves to amplify them in a negative light. Often times, providing us even more things to worry about and sidetracking us with vicious cycles of drama and chaos.

Now is truly the time to stop dwelling on the negatives and everything that’s bad in our lives and focus solely on the positive attributes that we have to be thankful for. We clearly can see what focusing on the stuff we don’t like can do for us, therefore it is our individual choice as to what we want to focus on; knowing that is what ultimately will manifest within our lives.

Saturn has been in retrograde since February causing us to revisit old lessons that we failed to learn or chose to sweep under the rug trying to avoid dealing with as we often do when things are not “convenient” for us at the moment. Most often those are things that force us to look within ourselves and see truths that we’d rather not have to admit to ourselves. Or simply, our attitudes get in the way of us dealing with whatever issues needed dealt with at the time but were not for whatever reason we can find fitting to justify our actions. So for the last 6-7 months, we’ve been given an overview and taste of the things in which we have failed to deal with or take accountability for.

Mercury also was in a very difficult retrograde wreaking lots of havoc on relationships in general and pointing out aspects that need to be dealt with whether to mend, release or make peace with; ultimately our choice as well, as to the outcome of our decisions past and present. It also created many headaches and frustrations in just dealing with everyday life and it’s various aspects. There wasn’t too many aspects that Mercury didn’t affect this time. Problems with electronics, travel and vehicles in general, connectivity issues, computer errors and glitches, inexplicable happenings with all sorts of things that would leave us all shaking our heads wondering what was going on.

Now that things are finally in forward motion again we too can begin to forge ahead in expanding our awareness, opening ourselves up to unlimited potential and positive opportunities that will help us all individually pave the way for others to follow suit and assist along the way. We all have been in a prolonged period of planetary initiation on a core spiritual level; at a very deep soul level. And as we grow in our understanding and unravel our own individual mysteries to our divinity and uniqueness, we become more cognizant of our divine roles as Lightworkers, Warriors of the Rainbow and Healers.

With each subsequent ascension wave, we grow in our power and understanding of our roles as transmitters, beacons and channelers of these higher energies that are flooding our Earth and all of humanity in an effort to raise the mass consciousness of all upon the planet and purge it’s bad programming and negative thought-forms. Helping to heal all of creation and restore it into a peaceful balanced state of perfection. It is our duty and birthright to take on this role and honor it’s intent and purpose for it shall be instrumental in bringing about peace upon Earth even if it may seem far off into the distant future. That does not mean that it will take as long as we have been taught to believe. If everyone focused upon this great shift then it would happen even faster!

Send forth your healing thoughts and prayers to the world, to the Earth itself, to the people of the Earth, the animals, insects, birds, elements and all of creation. For in imbuing positive healing energy outwardly we also receive that back into our bodies through the universal life force and as we help to heal others, we too in return heal ourselves. As vessels of the divine universal energies we channel unconditional love, compassion, healing and unity into the world while helping to lift humanity and our planet up through our thoughts, actions, words, prayers and deeds.

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Leslie Fulger/Akia Winterhawk

Dear Friends,

Namaste and Welcome.

The energy around us is accelerating at such a quickened rate. For those who can visually see energy this is exciting to see; as it provides insight into how energy moves and blends into whatever it comes into contact with. The more details become clearer to us of what is really occurring within our lives, community and world, will bring things into a more thorough perspective that places us in a zero balance point where we can be most receptive to seeing beyond the illusions.

Many of us find we are happy in some aspects and miserable in others. We have become very aware of what we don’t like or want in our lives, what seems to hold us back and how we limit ourselves via our incessant thinking and worrying. Not to mention how the very structures that govern us provide constant blockages to our expanding consciousness and freedom to acquire our divine birthrights.

We are at a cross roads. We are moving. We are expanding. We have in many ways outgrown where we’ve been and where we’re at during this point and time. Our hearts seek a comforting place to run to. But all too often, we have no idea where that physical place is. The one thing we do know is we have our individual connection with the creative life force that some refer to as God/Goddess, Mother-Father God, Great Mystery, Great Spirit, Universal Source, etc. whatever that connection may be.

We have an idea of what we want but we aren’t sure how to go about making the necessary changes to make it happen. That is where our faith comes into play. We must all have faith in the Universal Field of Plenty that speaks that our needs will be met and that we usually get far more than we ask; if you take the time to notice that is. We generally are in the right place at the right time. Think about it for a minute. How many times has the kind acts of another blessed you beyond measure when you needed it most; sometimes not even realizing it?

How many times have you perhaps not had much food to feed your family and by evening time you were setting with friends or family that had invited you over to dinner? How many times have you found that at the last second things pan out for you better than you originally expected? How many times have situations in your life proven that sometimes hindrances really are blessings in disguise?

These are all forms of syncronicity. The Law of Attraction at it’s best. A way in which energy freely flows into and through everything. Things of nature inherently understand syncronicity as it is a natural process. Things working together in unison for a common goal all serving a purpose of the greater good to positively benefit All That Is. Humans on the other hand, have long forgotten this balancing act. They have forgotten to have faith that all is in accordance and everything happens for a reason whether we realize it or understand it at the given time.

Back in the beginning of my learning, I was afraid I was either doing something wrong or not doing enough. Years later, after meeting what later became my tribal grandmother, I questioned these things and her reply was always “You’re doing fine, you’re right where you’re supposed to be.” And she’d chuckle her native chuckle that was ever so confidence-building to know if she felt you were on the right track then obviously you were without a doubt.

I have to agree. Back then I couldn’t see it as I was too busy searching. Chasing my own tail to find the answers already within me. I just had to search deeper and learn to trust my own intuitive feeling. Learning to trust yourself is the hardest part of self-awareness. But one has to learn the difference between intuition and gathered debris of others energy, feelings and thoughts especially with everything being so magnified on a mass conscious level. There’s a ton of debris surfacing for us all to work through and process energetically, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.

Now, I can see and say yes, I am where I need to be for the moment. And I say this to you as well. Even in your confusion and uncertainty, you are where you are meant to be at the given second you are in it for there are powerful lessons to learn during that time and way that is meant only for you according to what you agreed to undergo and endure upon your own individual Earth walk in order to awaken to your divinity and purpose.

Out of confusion and darkness, light will glisten and then cascade a reflection for you to see a minute fraction of understanding another piece of the puzzle that is your life. Think of your own self as a radiantly shining crystal ball of light. Some days you can see more clearly than others and sometimes you see nothing. We see what we are meant to see when it’s time for us to according to how far we have grown in our own individual evolutionary process and understanding.

We are all in that state of uncertainty as the New Earth energies are vibrating at frequencies we have never felt before. Our physical bodies, emotional bodies and minds have a hard time adapting to the newer energies; but it is getting easier the more we cleanse and purge ourselves of the old out-dated 3D world negative attitudes, beliefs and thinking. We are expanding and growing quicker than we can fathom.

Many are finding themselves ready to start new lives in new places. Ending old damaging relationships and beginning to look for new bonds that are more complimentary with their energy and vibrational level. Seeking like-mindedness. Those we can easily communicate with and experience the final ascension with. Some call them twin flames or soul mates if you chose to look at it from that perspective. Some have already connected, while others are being drawn together rapidly as things accelerate with the new energies present. Some have been trying to deal with these very aspects for decades while others are just now beginning to wake up with this new wave of ascension taking place.

So, evidently there are a lot of upcoming changes for all of us. Fear and worry of what may be are the worst things you can accept at this point. We have moved beyond the need to constantly spend countless hours worrying about what will happen for that does nothing but create things to fear and worry about within our lives. A lesson most should have learned by now.

It is time to be bold, courageous and daring to dream the impossible because now more than ever as a whole we are more consciously aware of life and our ability to transform ourselves and our lives into happy, peaceful and prosperous ones. We must act upon that ability. All time really is now. For it is now that these abilities are available to us to utilize for our benefit positively. Not just for our own benefit but for mankind itself. Now is the time we have all been called to witness and assist in helping lift up humanity! The more and more individuals who raise their vibrational frequency the better this world will become, feel and simply be!

Stop and think before you speak. Always remain optimistic in your views and don’t judge another as you would not want to be judged. Take the time to smile and laugh till you cry. Be who you are the best you can. But don’t give up with all the challenges and limitations that have been standing in your way during the past few decades. Simply it wasn’t time yet to utilize our abilities to their fullest potential. The elements and influences were not in alignment for it to occur yet as much learning was needed, cleansing and healing within each of us.

We have risen above our oppressions or are in the process of doing so. Things may still seem dim but things usually are darkest right before the light. Once you see the light within shining be prepared to be blinded as things will appear as they have never been visible to us. For our eyes were clouded with all the debris of our emotions and what collected within our energy centers and auras, as well as, the releasing of old programming and outdated belief systems, separation and division amongst all people because of our societal upbringings bringing with it racism, greed, hatred and judgment being filtered through our collective consciousness.

We are at a pivotal time in our evolutionary history. We are ALL the chosen ones, unfortunately not everyone has caught onto that part yet. It is within the collective consciousness of all living upon the Earth the solution to solving our world crisis’s; some of which have been fabricated in order to further enslave all of us into the greedy grasp of a few individual’s hands. Because of the control and manipulation on such a grand scale, sadly most individuals aren’t even aware they are being controlled, brainwashed, lied to and manipulated. The key to solving these injustices and reclaiming our sovereignty and true freedom lies within each of us and begins within the hearts of all of us.

We cannot just want change to occur we have to envision what changes we would like to see occurring and see them already manifested into our reality. Everyone claims they want peace yet do nothing towards creating peace; while entertaining the notions of war, competition, separation and division among people based on their color, race or beliefs. If you want peace, you must live it, breathe it, be it every single day.

If you want to see people awaken from their deep slumber and stupor from having been brainwashed their whole lives then you must envision them living in a peace-filled, abundantly resourceful world that does not have the desire or need for anything because its always made available. Sickness and disease would not exist it we did not entertain the notion that it did and fall prey into those who would enslave us since the beginning of time with their hidden agendas trying to control the world.

It is time for us to take accountability for our own lives. Stop relying on everyone else to do everything for us or support us. We are stronger and more open minded than those whom we have been dependent on anyway! Humanity has been tortured, tormented and completely cut off from its true self for far too long. It’s very exciting watching more and more awakening to that reality that they have more control over their lives than they realize! If we want a better world and reality for ourselves it is up to all of us to create one!

Stop falling prey to all the hype and drama that is constantly being broadcast throughout the world in order to instill fear and panic into the mind’s of those who are not yet fully awakened and are lulled by the media and broadcasting services. When you vibrate higher than the frequencies that are being broadcasted then those things no longer affect you the same way.

We are ALL far more powerful than we’ve ever been given credit for. And it is time to enact our personal power and reclaim our divinity and see beyond the illusions that have been placed before us in order to co-create a better world for our selves, our families, our grandchildren, their grandchildren, and so forth. Do we really want our children and grandchildren to live in the world reality that has been painted to us? Do we really want them to suffer as we have suffered and endure the pain, death and sadness that billions have known throughout their lifetime and for centuries?

It is up to each of us individually to ensure that no other generation is forced to live by the means and mindsets that had been programmed into humanity. We must rise above the limitations and illusion that have been planted into our subconsciousness and know that they are not real. The only real limitations we have are those we place upon ourselves by our thinking of which we have the power to change!

 

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Birthing The New Earth

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

Birthing The New Earth

 

All over the world people are experiencing all sorts of inexplicable symptoms and pains which clearly to me is a sign of us all playing a role in birthing the new Earth’s energies. Feeling the birthing pains as Gia further ascends into a higher vibrational state.

 

Our Earth is shifting and in the process all the pressure of old stagnated out dated energy and trapped negativity is being pushed to the surface in the form of various aches, pains, unexplained flare ups, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual symptoms.

 

This is a process of purging and applying pressure not only to the Earth’s core but also our very core essence and being. Each of us individually are feeling our own energy centers as well as the Earth’s being affected.

Thereby this vast array of symptomatic effects that are helping each of us to also ascend above the current state of beingness into a higher vibrational level.

 

Like a diamond in the rough, we are energetically being pressurized in which to bring forth our true inner self and divinity. Shining brightly pure reflection of the universal life force. As much as the Earth is shifting, so are we internally on all levels within our beingness.

 

As we all further awaken to our own unique selves while exploring the vast complexities of our oneness in reflection to the great universal life force.

Simply put, we are the masculine and feminine aspects of creation spread out and expanding into infinite unlimited potential. As such the more we “dream ourselves awake” we also help humanity further awaken.

 

Sometimes the process of helping lift others up within the collective conscious, it can be a very confusing time in which our bodies wreak havoc seemingly. It is the weight of those energetically that we are assisting to purge and heal their pain by filtering it into our own bodies energetically through us. It’s simply the way it works alchemically in our spiritual ascension. Just as we all filter the collective consciousness of all of creation, we also filter that of the Earth itself, as well as, many other facets throughout our creation.

 

Everything that our world has experienced on an energetic and subconscious/conscious level is stored within the memory of all that exists upon the Earth. Thereby as we help humanity and the Earth itself to ascend as Lightworkers literally we are vessels that filter all that through ourselves removing the toxins and poisons contained within the memory banks also known as the Akashic Records of everything since the very beginning of time.

 

We were all the co-creators of it’s existence and the elements of it’s building and creators of all that exists. We are each apart of EVERYTHING and thereby must help to purify and purge the bad, unnatural toxins of mis-creation and negative thinking/acts from the collective conscious mind in order to help restore the balance as we ascend higher we further release and awaken into these truths and can then begin to understand our real purpose as Lightworkers, Warriors of the Rainbow and Healers.

 

Lots of people are helping this process within their own unique way. We each hold the key within us to handle this process for that is what we were created for. And we have done this many times before trying to restore ourselves back to a state of perfect balance, expanding forward in growth not devolution like we have been experiencing for countless centuries!

 

It is time to take back our sovereign birthright of self empowerment and utilize our divine abilities to create a shift in the mass consciousness to rid the negativity that tries to keep everyone enslaved and grounded in the 3D reality of lack and limitation.

 

We all have the power within us to meditate, concentrate and consciously pour out loving, compassionate, healing energies to our world and invoke the I AM presence of everyone upon the planet. While invoking the Violet Flame to transmute through the barriers that keep mankind enslaved and infiltrate this world with truth, positive energy and transformation into a higher state of consciousness where no one hungers, there is no disease, pain or war.

 

Only a planet abundantly blessed with resources so that all could benefit freely. No money exchange, no crime, no BS or drama. Just everyone willingly working towards the good of the whole. A resource based world that does not separate the people into classes or division amongst it’s people. Everyone in peaceful union and resolve all needs met, never wanting for anything for all would abundantly be provided.

 

In raising the vibrational level of the people, the shifting helps to stir and awaken the kundalini’s primordial energy to burn through all that’s out of alignment within us all so that we can further ascend and step more fully into our divine roles.

 

The more chaotic the world appears, the more we need to be channeling our healing energies, thoughts and prayers into humanity and all of creation. When the world around us is going crazy and seems to be falling apart; that is when we need to focus our energies the hardest. Remaining calm and returning to our peaceful center each time we may veer away due to our own issues surfacing for purification.

 

A great cleansing and purification process to raise our awareness in the new energies as we continue to help with the new reality and energies of creation and better acclimate in this new energy. In this higher dimensional reality we must imbue it with unlimited potential and possibilities positively influencing the masses.

 

Many think it is impossible for our planet to turn around with all the political, religious hoopla and wars abroad daily; intentional acts of destruction. I say if we give up hope then what is there to live for? Do we want our children, grandchildren and their children living in a war torn world of domination, extreme poverty, total enslavement, starvation and diseases worse than we’ve ever seen at the rate the elite are governing things?

 

We have to spiritually, mentally, emotionally and energetically band together flooding this world with divine intention for Heaven to fully anchor upon the Earth. And for people to see they have a conscious choice to either exist in the old reality and world or exist in a more peace-filled resourceful world.

 

As they say, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for to save us from the oppressive state of the world. We are the Lightworkers, the beacons for those in need and vessels for transmuting the world alchemically. We each are the Holy Grail and the Philosopher’s Stone, we have just forgotten our divinity, true purpose and power.

 

We are the Warriors of the Rainbow, our ancestors reborn into the here and now to complete that which we began long ago and were born for. It us up to each of us to help others see beyond the illusion of the lies and deceit of an unjust world as they continue to paint a picture of our world intentionally to create fear and devastation.

 

It is up to us to change the picture for all to see more clearly of how beautiful and serene it really can be. If all of us gave up believing we can have a better world then who would save us from it’s destruction other than ourselves?

 

Isn’t it time we all step into our inherent roles to spiritually raise, restore and heal this world and all of creation? The time really is NOW!

 

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Launching Beyond The Illusion Forum

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

Here’s the link to my new discussion forum that I have been in the process of setting up.  http://www.lesliefulger.com/forum/phpBB3/ I am still in the process of customizing it but head over and check it out and strike up an interesting conversation today! Hope to see you there!

You can also check out my other site http://TheDragonflyOracle.com that I am finally able to get back online! It has been inactive unfortunately for a year which used to be one of my primary sites before this one. I’m just sharing to show some of the recent progress of changes I mentioned in the last correspondence. Stay Tuned for further updates and new articles I have been working on;)

Much Love and Many Blessings!

Upcoming Changes

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

I’m sure many of you have been shaking your head’s wondering if there’s any rhyme or reason to this website. Now that I have more personal time to focus upon the site and my work, I will be making some positive changes that I hope will provide my subscribers with better quality information and resources than it has in the past. Definitely time for a change!

Over the course of the last few years,  I’ve undergone many difficult challenges physically that have necessitated my undivided attention. My efforts at trying to actively accomplish anything to it’s completion; without dozens of starts, stops, winding twists and turns along the way has been futile effort. Honestly, I’m tired of letting things deter me from doing what I feel so strongly and passionate about.

Things that I began years and years ago that never came into fruition have weighed heavily on my heart and mind knowing that these things still need to be completed. Not just for my own personal sanity but also to help to inform, educate and guide others through all of the planetary shifts, kundalini awakenings, rebirth and ascension process. Many of us have undergone these very shifts early on so that we could help others as they too awakened and went through these mass conscious shifts in humanity with our planet’s ascension into higher octaves of light and vibrational frequency.

I used to own another website and newsletter entitled Earth’s Healing Embrace writing under the penname Akia Winterhawk. While through a series of unfortunate events I lost my website, not just that one; but several websites all pertaining to this particular topic of interest, as well as, self awareness, healing, understanding tarot and divination methods, and so forth.  Then 5 years ago I was in a position of having to utilize my real name and take on ghostwriting and editing work professionally. Over the years, I find that it’s just too much trying to keep up with writing underneath 2 different names and explaining myself to people.

In lieu of that information, I am going to remain focused upon my professional career as a writer underneath my real name regardless of whether I’m writing general, spiritual or internet marketing articles. I’ve been working at achieving some of these goals I had put so much work into for 15-20 yrs without having the gratification of completing them in their entirety and I’m tired of waiting around for the perfect time or opportunity to present itself!

So, my plan is to amp up and polish my writing skills through various ways. To begin with offering a spiritual newsletter similar to what I had before but with much more valuable content filled with information on how to handle dealing with all these planetary changes and shifts, as well as, the spiritual awakening that is occurring within humanity’s mass consciousness. While also writing articles on various topics ranging from positive thinking, manifesting abundance, self awareness to letting go and surrendering to the flow, overcoming obstacles, understanding your divine purpose and so many more categories that I can’t even list them right now!

My goal is to provide quality content articles of various genres that can be utilized for newsletters, blogs and website content. I am planning on providing some that may be freely distributed with my copyright intact. Also having premium quality articles that may be reprinted by purchasing a licensing fee. Before it’s over with, I’ll have some PLR article batches available for free and sale of unique content and hot topics of interest. So whether you’re trying to learn something or find articles to use as website content, I aim to provide the best of both worlds while enhancing my writing portfolio.

It will take me some time to implement all of the changes I have mentioned, so please continue to be patient and I thank you for your ongoing support!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Leslie Fulger

Enduring Our Current Snafu

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

Snafu? You may ask, “What is that?” It is a word that I feel best describes the current overtones that we have all been experiencing globally. The definition of snafu is a badly confused or ridiculously muddled situation that is a somewhat rare occurrence in which there is disorder, various aspects are seemingly spinning out of control and there is a lot of chaotic energy influencing and affecting everyone/everything upon this planet.

It still would be considered an alchemical process of the ascension in which things are being forced out of whack in order to more properly restore and realign the various elements and aspects that are out of synch within each of us on very deep core levels. For many individuals it was so easy to dismiss the importance that 12-21-2012 held upon humanities collective consciousness.

All of the false prophesies gave us hope that life continues regardless of the fear induced and probably made many more aware of how profitable fear mongering can be and how easy it is to get caught up in the drama of it all sometimes even unbeknownst to us that we are being manipulated and intentionally confused and being bombarded by lies, false promises and distorted illusions in an attempt to dis-empower us, divide and separate us by our differences regardless of what they may be.

We truly are at a pivotal state in our evolutionary process and eventually that which has falsely been misconstrued and misinformed will be brought to the light. But in the meantime, we cannot stand around and wait for everything else around us to fall into place before we do. Life for many has become such a state of disarray and confusion to say the least in the sense that things that typically would flow fairly easy has now become unpredictable and caused some chaos, stress and/or seeming ruin within various aspects of our lives.

Be patient, as this snafu won’t last much longer and all is still in alignment with the higher good even if it may seem far from it at this moment in time. Do not allow your fears to creep into the forefront of your consciousness and prevent you from forging ahead despite the difficulties present.

Instead, look at what things in your life isn’t working out so well and identify things within yourself that need to be released as well. A cup that is full has no more room. Until we clear through our own internal clutter and chaos then the snafu will seem to be keeping the drama and whirlwind actively bombarding you! Let go of the things that no longer serve you and release all the outdated thoughts, beliefs and feelings that have held you prisoner for far too long!

When we surrender to the universal flow we can more easily attune ourselves to our goals and manifest the very influences and elements we need within our lives. Otherwise, we’re spinning our wheels in a vicious cycle repeating the same ‘ole same ‘ole not really make much progressive action forward. We must let go of all that is weighting us down and clear our bodies emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually in order to more fully appreciate and recognize the divine gifts that are inherently within our lives daily that we tend to overlook because of all the chaos and clutter!

How do we get through this? We begin by cleaning up our space, our lives and getting back in alignment with our real hopes and dreams instead of being bombarded by all the seeming negatives we’ve come to experience over the past year which will prove in the end to be blessings in disguise!

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Handling Discomfort During Transitions

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

It’s no secret that going through change can be uncomfortable and sometimes downright ugly at times. However, it is a necessary part of the process of transformation. Going from one state to another such as ascending levels of consciousness, making progressive forward movement or even renewing oneself all could fit within the criteria of “transformation”. Just like a caterpillar becomes a beautiful butterfly, it did not get there overnight and neither will we. Change can come in many forms and ways into our lives. It is how we deal with these changes that will make the difference between them being positively or negatively aspected.

If it is change that we personally are seeking then generally speaking we embrace it with zest and take initiative. However, sometimes we may find ourselves having to be forced to change, then we typically deem it as a dreaded event that we fight tooth and nail against or try in every way possible to avoid dealing with. The process of change and transformation is inevitable as we each individually evolve; how we choose to utilize those opportunities is up to us. Thus influencing what effects those changes have within our lives.

One of the first things we need to realize is that fear of the unknown is simply something we’ve been taught and programmed to accept as a reality that doesn’t really exist except within our own minds and outdated belief systems. Without expecting the worse or that there will be things in which will make us afraid, it is easier to be at peace with whatever situation we may find ourselves in. Knowing what is going on within us and around us makes things a lot easier to deal with.

Meditating to discern better ways in which to combat the side effects of planetary shifts and the ascension flame will also provide some relief as our spirit knows the techniques and natural medicines that can help assist us during major transitions. Avoiding the media and other things in which we can easily be manipulated and persuaded by the opinions and expectations of others in order to keep up with the status quo will also help to prevent additional “fear factors” in which to limit your ability to accept change gracefully.

Working on clearing your chakras (energy centers) and your etheric web will help release any residual debris that has been trapped or blocked within the physical or spiritual bodies. Pain is often associated with blockages in whatever energy center is being influenced and affected by the circumstances, inner debris and past life karma, as well as, a myriad of other outdated thoughts, feelings and beliefs.

It is time to release that which no longer serves a purpose and only hinders your forward movement towards your goals and dreams. It is time to stop pointing the finger at everyone else and take responsibility for your own actions and circumstances rather than finding others to blame. It is also time to refocus ourselves upon our purpose, goals and dreams because we have gotten sidetracked from these endeavors over the past few years and it’s time to realign ourselves with what we feel drawn to do and be. Our time of waiting is over, it is now time for progressive movement forward no more 1 step forward 2 steps back syndrome we’ve fallen prey to in the past. It is time to stand in our own light and live our purpose, apply our gifts, talents and abilities in creative ways that will help heal ourselves and the world around us.

Our spirit has not forgotten it’s purpose, we’ve just distanced ourselves from it because of all the physical issues that many of us have been forced to deal with along the way. We can no longer allow these things to hold us back or others to hold us down. As we ascend higher others will be raised and those who don’t chose not to it’s that simple. It is no longer our responsibility to carry everyone else’s weight on our shoulders. It is only our responsibility to carry ourselves and help assist our family through the difficult transitions but ultimately it’s up to each person as to whether or not they want to ascend higher in dimensional reality or if they want to remain in the 3D reality of lack, limitation and victim consciousness. Sadly, many will choose to stay because they enjoy their dramas and self created hells and all the attention they get through manipulation and trying to force others to be sympathetic in order to take advantage of them. Too  many individuals cry wolf when they are quite capable themselves to make the journey but would rather someone else do the dirty work for them.

It’s time to stop falling prey to those who would only hold you back for selfish gain and stand in your own light and knowing that you serve a higher purpose. We may sometimes be a light in the darkness shining but that doesn’t mean that we have to succumb to the bullshit in order to be who we are and our energy/lights do it’s job. Most of what we do is done on a subconscious level anyway so our spirits do it’s job even when we’ve forgotten what it is.

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Many individuals believe that we are reaching a point in our evolution as a collective whole in which it is imperative that humanity awakens to the realization of their true purpose and innate abilities. In lieu of this, many find themselves searching for alternative methods in which to explore the vast complexities of life trying to discern understanding in some way of the true mess we, as a planetary family, have created for ourselves and what it is that we individually and collectively can do to help make a positive difference in the world.

The Tarot, is one of many methods that people tend to navigate towards. However, they usually just think it’s simply a means to receive guidance during times of confusion and uncertainty. What they usually don’t consider is the fact that the process of yearning to know something will propel that person into a great in-depth learning and their lives begin to change.

When a person is seeking to know themselves, their true divine essence or spirit, they are seeking transformation within their lives and self in order to know that part within the shadows that truly has been hidden from the world. That part of ourselves that is more than a body and mind, our spiritual essence; our truest form a bright shining body of light and energy. In order for you to know that part of yourself, you must become that part of yourself through a process of self discovery.

The Tarot will support you along the way in steering you through the winds of change that blow your way upon the path of life. These changes are not to be feared; although sometimes they may seem very scary. Have faith and trust that even in these confusing times, there is a purpose to the seeming madness.

At some point in your life, you were drawn to the Tarot. Perhaps out of curiosity or with the intent to seek guidance or even become a Tarot reader yourself because you thought it might be cool. The Tarot is far more than just regular everyday playing cards. They are a powerful divination tool that should be respected and considered sacred to you personally. In other words, what you put into it basically is what you’ll get out of it.

If all you want to do is pull a card here and there, that’s okay it will work for you in whatever way you want it to. But if you want to step into your true power as an individual seeking to know their innate gifts, abilities and purpose in life then set forth your intentions and utilize the Tarot for its true purpose ~ A Path to Self Discovery.

Look within your life and find the patterns, cycles, events and inexplicable pieces of the puzzle that make up your life and see the fine thin woven thread that interconnects everything you’ve ever experienced. Look at the cards, find yourself and those circumstances within them. Look for your own path of understanding to reveal itself. Slip between the veil and see through the illusions in order to truly find understanding in your life and get in touch with the real you, that voice within that knows there is more than meets the eye!

To Your Divinatory Success!

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Varying Degrees of Understanding

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

As with most things, no two people ever see them the same exact way. This is especially true in terms of symbology and Tarot. There will always be varying degrees of understanding on most subjects and aspects of life. It is important to remember that we receive whatever information is important to us individually in whatever way we are most receptive to the information. In lieu of that concept, therefore know that tends to alleviate the whole who’s right and who’s wrong tug-of-war that is common with controversial topics. And simply take whatever information you intuit and utilize it to your own advantage; applying it whatever way will best benefit you upon your own individual path of understanding.

It is within each person to discern their own understanding of the world through observation and experience. It is also within each person to distinguish between right and wrong based upon their own understanding. However, to engage in this battle leads to nowhere other than chaos, confusion, separation, frustration and does not serve any real purpose as it is not our place to “convert” anyone into our belief systems or force our will upon another. The true value that is provided when there is a distinctive viewpoint that does not necessarily reflect ours is that within that same information there are fragments of truth. This is where our power of discernment comes into play most effectively. Deciphering the fragments that are of importance and knowing the “rest” of the information was based upon the viewpoint and varying degree of understanding of the author.

We find many Tarot authors that have such varying degrees of understanding, yet none have a total grasp of the concept for it is not intended in that way. It is for each individual to find their own understanding and all of the books, decks, articles, etc. that you read are simply a guide that is intended to help enhance your own learning and understanding. Not a mandatory view of how it should be; as some get confused when they see so many individuals having such a varying degree of understanding they don’t know who to believe, what to believe or what they’re even doing trying to figure it out themselves.

That is why it is important to remember that all things hold a small key to the totality of understanding and for each one a million different viewpoints. Wisdom is like a tree with many branches and roots; each fragment, viewpoint or seed of knowledge becomes apart of the whole. There is no part any greater than the other; yet all are needed for there to be growth and an abundant life that is uniquely shaded, colored and expressed just like the foliage on the trees in Autumn. And as each root (seed of wisdom) grows, it veers off into a new direction, viewpoint and understanding.

The Tarot is much like the tree in its many directions, viewpoints and degrees of understanding. There is no right or wrong way of viewing the topic for it is expansive and full of fragmented pieces of the puzzle that is life. It is up to us individually to take whatever information we receive and apply it in the best way we feel most guided to for our own individual growth and understanding.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Understanding The Tarot

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

I know that all too often we want to jump head first into doing things. We get too busy trying to hurry up and get to wherever we’re going or whatever we’re trying to do to really pay much attention to all the details going on around us. While this is true, it also comes with knowing that along the way we are likely to be missing much needed information. When we allow ourselves to slow down and enjoy the process of each endeavor unfolding then we are more able to discern what necessary information is available to us, as well as, gather more understanding. 

The same is true no matter what you are trying to achieve. If you do not pay attention to all the potential signs along the way, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem at the given time, then how can you expect to fully understand what it going on in your life and the world around you? One of the most important aspects of the Tarot is your ability to pay attention to all the minute details no matter what form they may appear. Not everything that applies to a reading comes directly through the cards, sometimes there are impressions you may pick upon around the person in which may help you more accurately interpret the situation; thereby providing a more personalized and authentic reading.

It is important to remember that the Tarot is simply a tool to help you expand your awareness and with it your ability to discern patterns, cycles, symbols, numbers, influences, elements and energies present that affect an individual and make sense of it all. Think of it this way, the Tarot cards are miniature pictures that reflect the world around you. Each card is a piece to the puzzle that is your life in all it’s many aspects. When you study the Tarot, you can either memorize some shallow interpretation found in most books, or you can study all the symbology yourself and discern a more detailed understanding of what each card represents.

Tarot is not a course of study that is meant to be fast-paced. It is meant to be examined in depth from every angle and means possible to fully comprehend the real authentic meaning associated with the Tarot. It is also meant to be a life-long process of learning about yourself and the path you walk in life.

With this in mind, take your time when studying the Tarot cards and trying to figure out what they mean. In doing so, you will greatly enhance your own learning and understanding. Take your time, savor the experience and journey that you are about to embark upon as you begin utilizing the Tarot in your life. Pay attention to the signs around you in everything and everywhere. The more you pay attention, the more likely the signs will begin to beckon out to you drawing your attention. The Tarot is a tool that helps also expand your awareness and unlock more of your subconscious mind; especially considering there is a storehouse of universal information that we can tap into. Since our mind’s think in terms of symbols, it makes perfect sense to pay attention to any signs and symbols we see along the way no matter what they are.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Understanding The Suit of Wands

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Wands represent our thoughts and are associated with the mental plane. When we are interpreting the Suit of Wands, we must take into consideration that this suit deals with things that may not be known, as they may be on a subconscious level or have not manifested themselves into an expression or realized thought. So in essence, you can say, this would also imply things that are hidden, beyond the veil of our knowing in some cases.

Our thoughts spark the energetic attraction of similarities. Whatever we focus our thoughts on is what we will attract into our lives in various ways. Be it positively or negatively aspected, our thoughts are like magnets drawing the influences and energies needed to manifest what has been projected outwardly into the Universe through our thoughts and thinking patterns.Fear, anxiety, worry, scarcity are all negative based energetic patterns that will attract exactly what you are focusing on. For example, if you are always worried you won’t have enough money and don’t know where you’ll get your next dollar, then you are sending out a signal that you are afraid and are fearful that you will not be able to manifest what you need. So in response to that negative energetic thought pattern, you will begin attracting more things into your life you don’t want like more struggle, increase in expenses, and a major pinch in your pocket as money will be hard to come by.This is not just a theory, this has been scientifically proven that if we dwell on all the negatives then you can expect to continue to have more bad stuff happen to you. Such is the case of someone with cancer; if they dwell on the fact they have cancer and are dying then it will consume them and create that reality for them. However, someone who has a positive outlook and has faith within themselves to overcome whatever obstacle that is in their path will most likely be victorious and not only be healed; but also increase their lifespan.

So these are the things to take into consideration when we are looking at the Suit of Wands. What other elements in the cards help you identify what type of thoughts are prohibiting you from moving forward? What thought patterns are sabotaging your efforts? The cards help you to become more aware of your thoughts and teach you how to pay attention to the patterns within your life. What are your thoughts creating for you? You can discover that by studying the Suit of Wands.

By stepping out into the unknown with trust and faith in yourself and the Universe to provide your needs is one of the greatest lessons that the Wands have to teach us. It is when we step out in fear and with uncertainty of what to expect do our paths become confusing, chaotic and very difficult. It is through training our mind to “think positively”, that we learn how to better control the outcomes in our life and the reality we experience.

Wands often appear to us when we need to right our thinking if we have been judgmental, critical, selfish, have negative thoughts towards others or ourselves. These types of thinking patterns can be corrected through positive affirmation and consciously choosing to release outdated negative thinking patterns and embracing a more positive outlook. And that is how the path of Wands flows, it reveals our thinking and thought patterns to show us how we are being affected and how they are affecting our lives on many levels and aspects.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Understanding the Suit of Swords

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Most often, Swords are associated with conflict and struggle but that is not all that it represents. It also entails a need to pay close attention to our actions and our reactions to people, things and situations. 

It is through studying the Swords do we understand how sometimes our actions often bring about discord and chaos upon our paths. As well as, it is our reactions that fuel the fire of whatever lesson or inward journey we must take in order to move forward upon our individual paths.

Conflict and chaos arise to bring forth a restructuring of foundations and in the process we begin to establish order and balance within our lives. Like the phoenix engulfed in flames burns to ash is reborn and sings its victory song, so too do we go through our own process of transmutation and transformation.
Our own individual process of death and rebirth and these elements can be seen within the Suit of Swords.

Usually it is during these times of conflict and chaos that we are being drawn the most to take action and it is most often change does not come until we put forth the effort to make some changes within our lives by releasing the things that are hindering us and not allowing us to reach our fullest potential.

Sometimes friendships and relationships are severed during periods of conflict, difficulty and struggle. So pay attention when swords come up in a reading as to what is going on around you. Are you having some communication breakdowns with family or friends? Are these issues resulting from past feelings based upon repressed and undealt with emotions that have never been able to be expressed or released? Perhaps now would be a good time to examine your relationships more closely and see if there is a way to make right the relationship or if not, then in order to move forward, we must release that relationship so that both may continue to expand and grow. Otherwise in a permanent state of stagnation is what you can expect until whatever is needed to be dealt with can be released in order for all parties to heal.

It is through our thoughts and actions as to what we experience as our individual reality in life. So remember in times of difficulty and struggle, don’t allow the hardships to steal away your joy making you edgy and jagged. For if we allow ourselves to be constantly on the defensive as sometimes is seen in the Suit of Swords, then we can end up hurting those we love. A Sword is a means of protection but can easily become a double-edged dagger and severe the ties that bind.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Understanding the Suit of Pentacles

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

When you look at the Suit of Pentacles, one of the first things you may notice is that Pentacles look like golden coins or tokens and that’s exactly what they are. As a result, they represent wealth, prosperity and abundance. It also portrays stability through utilizing our abilities and skills to their highest potential. Therefore, Pentacles also represent our financial security and material gain. 

Within this Suit you can see how things are fairing in regards to employment and career opportunities. As well as, how secure your foundation is and if it will sustain you along the way. Pentacles can also help us to recognize our inherent gifts and abilities and how we can tapped into those skills to enhance our position and provide more stability in our lives.Where Wands represented our thoughts, Cups our emotions, Swords our actions, Pentacles symbolize physical manifestation. This is the primary focus with this Suit; our ability to manifest our needs and desires into our physical reality. It is a culmination of all the other Suits showing the reward we hope to find at the end of the hard winding journey through self-awareness, discovering our strengths and recognizing our innate abilities.Pentacles also represent a time in which we can expect to manifest abundance into our lives through hard work and dedication or through some other method such as an inheritance, an approved bank loan, income tax return, etc. Usually Pentacles represents us having the material resources to meet our needs and in certain instances, some cards within this suit, will indicate when there is an excessive outward flow of money as well. As this also represents a time to pay particular attention to your finances and seeing how you can better manage your budget and create an inward flow of money into your life.In this way, you increase your abundance coming in; instead of, having just as much if not more going out. Managing money effectively is a challenge in today’s world of high priced living and minimal wage jobs that barely meet ends meat. Through observing the Suit of Pentacles, we can recognize key times in which it would be wise to save our money and resources for future endeavors, as well as, when it would be best to pay attention to our spending habits and how to better utilize our skills to maximize our earning potential.With Pentacles being so “physical” and “money-oriented”, this suit can remind us also when it is time to show acts of kindness and charity. It is believed, that by giving we also receive. The images associated with Pentacles represent this aspect depicting individuals sharing their wealth with others and manifesting abundance through the Law of Attraction.

Through reciprocity, we align ourselves to manifesting and receiving abundance through balance and synchronicity. The Suit of Pentacles takes us through the various obstacles that we may encounter financially, as well as, points out the opportunities that are available to us through keen observation and setting forth reasonable goals to accomplish. A plan of action may be only a rough draft to start with but it’s far more effective than having no draft at all.

Understanding the Suit of Cups

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

When Cups appear within a reading, it is usually indicative of things relating to the “heart of the matter” or things within the emotional realm; although they may not always be expressed outwardly or even fully understood and known at the given time. Cups helps us to understand how our energy and thoughts are amplified and how it enhances anything we focus upon because of its association with water and emotions.

Cups also represent relationships especially those associated with family and friends close at heart. There within, are many diverse emotions to deal with that can take one on an emotional roller coaster ride and in the process seem to hit every thorn and brier in its path; often times, leaving individuals confused, bewildered and feeling helpless and victimized by life’s circumstances. It is through this process of teetering emotions that we learn how to look at how our thoughts are affecting our emotions and vice-versa while paying attention to the energetic signals we are sending out into the universe to attract unto ourselves to manifest our reality based upon our thoughts and emotions.If our emotions are based on anger, fear, anxiety, worry, hate and ill-willed then those are negative energies that play upon our vulnerable state emotionally and wreak total havoc and chaos within our lives. During times like this, you can expect to find Cups coming up in your readings to reflect situations involving the emotional state and energy transpiring and influencing other areas of your life.Personally, I have found that when an individual or myself is neglecting to deal with issues that are surfacing to be processed that Cups usually will come along to draw attention to the fact of needing to get in touch with those hidden emotions. Since emotions fluctuate between a wide array of positively and negatively aspected energy, it can also represent entering a period in which your cup will be overflowing with joy. Just as it can also remind us when we have become stagnated and need to release the contents within that are decaying and hindering us from moving forward.Many of the Cups in that suit contain water and are often seen with water being poured from the cup. Aside from what I’ve just mentioned, it can also represent how well we are flowing upon our paths and how in tune we are with ourselves as intuition is often depicted within the Cups as well. There are various angles to look at when interpreting Cups within a reading and of course there are many other symbology as well associated with them.

Soften your focus, pay attention to your emotions and listen to your intuition as these are the primary elements that we are being guided to under the influence of Cups.

Attuning To Your Tarot Cards

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Many individuals ask me how they can better attune to their Tarot cards. Although the connection one develops with their Tarot cards is unique and individualized, there are some creative techniques to help connect and better attune yourself to them.

One of the most effective methods I have found is meditating on each individual card. This does not have to be done all at one time, however you may decide to first spend a few moments with each card feeling it’s energy and focusing upon it’s associated symbols.

The Tarot cards are packed full of meaningful symbols and since our minds tend to think in terms of symbols this would be the best means for connecting with them. Each card depicts a story, so with this in mind, focus on what each card is representing via it’s numbers, elements, planetary signs and any other symbology associated with each card.

You may want to hold each card, one at a time, in your hand and place the other hand directly over top of the card. Allow yourself to feel the energy of the card. You may notice a warm, tingling sensation. Sometimes it may feel like a cool swirling type of sensation. As you hold each card in your hand in this fashion, you are exchanging energy with the card. You are putting your energy into them and as a result, you are also receiving energy from each card. This helps your subconsciousness pick up on the energy associated with each individual card; which will also help it to depict the associated symbolism for each card.

Another method I have found useful is sleeping with your Tarot cards under your pillow or if possible in your hands. This is helpful if you have a small cloth drawstring bag to place them in while you are sleeping as to not mess up your cards. Plus if you’d happen to drop them during the night, you’d not have them scattered everywhere. You can do this one card at a time or the entire deck; the choice is ultimately yours.

I have found that when sleeping with the Tarot, I would have nights that literally the cards would come to my mind all night long; as if watching a slideshow. It was a restless night in one aspect, but it was necessary in attuning to them as well. That’s not to say that you will experience the same thing but should you experience seeing the cards at night while trying to sleep you will not be alarmed by it. Simply put, it is a sign you are connecting to them.

Most usually, I find that almost everyone experiences their own means of connecting to the cards. It may take some time to do this or it may happen rather quickly. If it doesn’t, do not fret and give up! That just means you need to follow your intuition and devise a creative way to connect with them.
What works for me may not necessarily work for you so be creative and keep an open mind.

You may want to spend a few minutes each day focusing on each card and writing down whatever impressions come to you during that time. I find this to be very helpful in deciphering the language (symbols) of the Tarot. Journaling your experience will also be a valuable tool to serve your growth as a Tarot reader.

Although there are tons of books available to assist you in interpreting the cards, the fact is, it is ultimately you that is deciphering the meaning of the cards. So what matters most is that you can identify with them and associate their meaning in an efficient manner.

That is why it is important to attune yourself to your individual deck. Listening to your intuition is the best method! Spend a little bit of time getting to know your deck and tap into it’s energy. In this way, you will be enhancing your own understanding of the Tarot. These are only a few methods but certainly not all of them. Be creative, use your imagination and spend a little time getting to know your cards today!

To Your Divinatory Success!

Daily One Card Meditation Spreads

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Each Tarot card depicts a story within itself presenting many facets and symbols on many levels. Each card depending on which suit it falls in has a key focus of whether or not it reflects an emotional, mental, physical or financial (which technically is your ability to manifest your needs and desires) aspect. This is determined by the suit of Cups, Wands, Swords and Pentacles. By recognizing which aspect is the primary focus, this will help identify with other elements within the card itself.

As each one tells its own story, they collectively tell a more detailed story of the path of life we each walk. The cycles, patterns, challenges and tests of strength that we each must endure in order to progress and keep moving forward upon our path of self realization and purpose. Each card also presents a lesson or insight that is needed to be meditated or focused upon to more fully understand the information being presented.

Look at each card and see what images reflect scenarios or events within your own life that have been similar. Was there anything within the cards that drew your attention to them? These specific symbols, images and thoughts are a keynote that naturally speaks to your subconscious causing you to take notice and this you feel as your intuition or experience it in various ways through ideas, thoughts, a voice, a breeze, tingling warm sensation or a number of other ways.

These are the very things and areas of your life that you need to discover and find understanding in regards to how it applies to your life and what you should do in order to balance out the situation and return to a position of clarity. We all have experiences that often times take us by surprise and in some instances turn our lives upside down leaving us confused and uncertain. There within resides much learning, wisdom and understanding of The Path of the Tarot and more importantly, your own individual path.

The Tarot can help guide you along a path of least resistance if you truly pay attention to the signs that speak softly drawing your attention to them; yet typically our minds don’t slow down enough to notice them. Each day, I shuffle my cards asking the Universe to provide a card for me to focus and meditate upon for the day in a way that will benefit others and myself more positively and allow whichever card is meant to present itself by falling out during my shuffle. In this way, I’m allowing the Universe and the energies present to work more efficiently and feel I am going with the flow rather than trying to go against it.

Daily One Card Meditation Spreads are very good for seeing what type of day you’re likely to experience in regards to the type of people, attitudes, challenges, and opportunities that may present them self. This technique done on a regular basis will be much more effective; as the more we work with the cards, the better and easier we attune to them. Whatever card presents itself use as a focal point but remember nothing is set in stone and we have the ability to alter our reality by changing our attitudes and outlook.

This exercise will provide you a means to go about your day and seeing if there was anything the card presented that reflects that particular card. As a means to better understand the cards and the reflection of the world around you. In this way you may learn how to tap into the energy, symbols and images embedded within each individual Tarot card. You may even want to keep track of these exercises in a journal; after all it’s just one card daily! It will help you learn how to recognize the flow of each card individually and the interconnectedness of all the cards collectively. It’s an exciting journey if you look to perceive the beautiful reflection between you and your individual cards.

As a Teacher of Tarot, I often times get a lot of questions about learning how to interpret the Tarot more accurately or if there’s an easy way to learn the meanings without being overwhelmed by all the information. As this is very much an individualized process of self exploration and learning, there are however some simple and effective techniques you can do to make the process easier.

One of the most effective ways is by drawing a card and focusing upon that particular card’s symbols, images and meaning. This can be done in several ways but most usually being creative provides the best results and takes the overwhelmingness out of the situation and replaces it with a more enjoyable approach. When we’re having fun we tend to absorb more because we do not feel overloaded by the information.

Some common examples for utilizing this technique would be to draw a daily guidance card and meditate, focus and intuitively discern the message behind the card you are drawing. When doing this, it helps to provide clues as to how the flow of the day will unfold; not necessarily to a tee but highly probable or it may indicate the way in which we should react to a situation when we do experience it.

Use your intuition to guide you through this process. Journaling about this can provide additional benefits because often times when we are writing and expressing our feelings about something our intuition is much higher and will tend to flow forth onto the pages you’re writing (or typing) in your journal.

This can be done on a daily basis or once a week as an overall generalized representation of what you need to be aware of for the upcoming week or indication of the influences, elements, energies and experiences that may manifest themselves. You could also lay out 7 cards, one for each day of the week if you would like to expand upon the messages or increasing the number of cards you interpret at one time.

Another method that many Tarot readers utilize is sleeping with their Tarot deck underneath their pillow at night as this directly connects our subconscious awareness to the cards while we are in our most receptive state of mind and beingness.

These however are only a few examples but will greatly assist your process of absorbing and learning the Tarot. For these exercises utilize your intuition first and foremost before you dive into the books to see what other readers and author’s have to say. You may surprise yourself and find that you are more accurate than you realized.

Exploring The Major Arcana

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

The Major Arcana consists of 22 beautifully illustrated cards that are the most powerful cards throughout the deck. Their influence takes precedence over any other cards and holds within each card a tremendous amount of symbology.

These cards represent the seasons, estimated time frames, astrological influences, individual traits and qualities of people in your life, an overview of you in your surroundings and various other symbolic representations that are too numerous to possibly include every single one.

They represent every stage and process we go through in the various phases of our lives. In essence, a path of learning of one’s self and the world around them. These key cards determine the flow of the card’s meaning and provide us with a means to pinpoint specific events, influences and elements currently at work within a person’s life at the given time of the reading.

Of course, it is necessary to keep in mind that whatever appears in a reading does not mean that it will occur precisely as indicated by the cards; as nothing is truly set in stone par say. However, at the time of consulting the Tarot, the elements are in alignment with that probability if conditions and circumstances continue in the fashion that they are unfolding. We do control the outcome of our experiences by our thinking and actions, therefore remember that the Tarot is simply a tool to divine a means of seeing the possibilities available at the given time and are always subject to change.

Some spreads and readers only utilize the Major Arcana because of its influence and effect. As it predicts major issues in life rather than just everyday mundane aspects. They also indicate the most important positions in various spreads such as Keltic Cross, Category or Zodiac Month-by-Month type spreads. Often times, the Major Arcana cards are used to depict the Significator. Which simply means, the person who is consulting the Tarot.

The Major Arcana can be utilized also as being a great tool for meditating. There are various techniques that can be applied to the use of the Tarot cards. Explore the many uses and interpretations of each card as you journey through the Major Arcana and open your mind to seeing many patterns, cycles and information flooding into your awareness as you expand your consciousness.

Since the Major Arcana consists of 22 cards, it is impossible to explain the meaning of each card in a single short article. Therefore, I will present future articles depicting each card’s interpretation and underlying symbology as we progress and explore the Major Arcana.

Following Your Intuition

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

The interesting thing about Tarot is there are no right or wrong answers. Technically speaking, Tarot is based upon symbolic meanings and associations. And since no two people will ever view the same symbol identically; it is based upon our own intuitive perception.

Yes, we can try to memorize the symbology of each card but in reality, that is someone else’s perception of it’s associations and meaning, but that does not necessarily mean that you will perceive those same interpretations the exact same way.

That is where many individuals tend to give up in frustration because it appears to be an overwhelming task of memorizing all the information. Or they may not feel they identify with the information provided with their card deck.

Yes, that information can be helpful in the beginning but relying upon your own intuition is key. Utilizing the Tarot will help build upon those intuitive faculties. It also helps to boost self-confidence in trusting your intuitive impressions.

So at anytime during your course of studying the Tarot, please do not give up simply because you are frustrated or confused. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and stop worrying so much about what the book says. Start learning to listen to your intuition.

The book is simply a guide to help assist you. It is your intuition that draws upon the symbols and interprets them in a way that you can understand. Rely on your impressions as they are likely to be more accurate than any book you may read. Predominantly, those books are based upon the author’s viewpoint and their own intuitive impressions.

Open your mind, soften your focus and allow the images and symbols of each card to speak to you. Have faith in yourself to discern the information accurately. It is when we tend to doubt ourselves that we truly hinder our progress.

The Tarot is a never ending cycle of learning. No matter how long or how good you get at reading the Tarot, you will always be working towards improving your skills and becoming more attuned to the cards. As a result, you also will become more aware of yourself and the world around you.

You will begin to notice the symbols speaking to your consciousness in many subtle and unique ways. They certainly have a language all their own and once you can connect and tap into that reservoir of knowledge and information you will notice that your intuitive faculties will heighten.

You would not be drawn to study the Tarot if you were not capable of reading it and understanding it. Your subconscious knows this on a very deep level and has drawn your attention to whatever deck you have chosen to use. Have patience, faith and trust that you can overcome whatever challenges you may encounter along the way. Allow the Tarot to guide your way. Listen closely to it speaking to you and most importantly trust your intuition.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Interpreting The Tarot

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

As we enter into studying the Tarot in depth, we must look from every angle and element of the cards to more fully understand the underlying meaning. Each card depicts various symbols within each card. These represent the elements, directions, planetary influences and energies present in our lives through the people we interact and share our lives with.

They represent every aspect on every level of our beingness. The phases, patterns, cycles, seasons; everything within our lives from love to money to our spiritual paths can be denoted in the various symbols of the Tarot cards. Each card paints a picturesque view reflecting our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual happenings. It is our job as the reader to open our minds and accurately access the information available to us hidden within the cards.

Look at every aspect and overlook nothing, as each minute detail can be a significant element in the overall scheme of things. This is where the use of pen and paper or notepad (or any other text editor) on your personal computer can come in handy and be beneficial. Keeping track of these signs and symbols will greatly help memorize and quickly identify them at a glance; speeding up the process of interpreting them.

Research the various symbols’ meaning to gain greater perspective of the overall meaning associated with each card. The Internet is filled with tons of valuable information pertaining to symbolism; so check out various outlooks, belief systems and cultural viewpoints to each one to provide yourself with a multitude of possible associations.

Always pay attention to your thoughts and intuition as well, as this will most likely prove to be beneficial in personalizing the reading for each individual. The more in-tune your are to their energy, the easier it is to discern the signs and symbols within each card that applies to that specific individual.

Ultimately, it’s up to each individual who chooses to read and interpret the Tarot as to how much study they are willing to do and to what depth and degree. But keep in mind, the more knowledgeable you become with the symbolism it will greatly enhance your ability to interpret the cards more thoroughly and accurately.

Each source will provide a different viewpoint to shed light and help expand your mind by showing you various possibilities that you may not have considered previously so that you may discern and decide for yourself the meaning that best matches your own perception and understanding.

That is why I highly recommend keeping track of all the possible interpretations of the various symbols associated with the Tarot and try to gain recognition of the various signs and symbols at a glance; because the key is learning to quickly look at the cards and draw a generalized overview of what the cards are saying especially if you are doing a one-on-one reading for someone else. If you are being paid to do the reading, keep in mind, that they are paying for you to tell them valuable information relative to them; not you spending all day trying to figure out what the cards mean.

That is why I am pointing out the need to thoroughly study the Tarot so that when you are interpreting them for someone else you are confident in your ability to accurately access and read the Tarot instead of appearing foolish and as if you don’t know what you’re doing. Even if you’re not the best Tarot reader in the world, if you act like you don’t know what you’re doing, inevitably people will pick up on that. So make sure that you always present yourself professionally, confidently and knowledgeable of the subject. If you lack faith in yourself in accurately interpreting the cards, the person you’re doing the reading for will probably not have much faith in your abilities either which could be bad for business, reputation and self-esteem.

To avoid that situation, put forth the effort to truly study the Tarot and its associated symbolism. Learn all that you can on the subject and symbology. Take the time to memorize and familiarize yourself with the various meanings. If you’re planning on doing this professionally, this will prove to be very beneficial to you. Don’t rush things, do your homework now to avoid frustration in the future.

The better prepared you are to answer unexpected questions and clarifying your interpretation for the client will enhance your clients trust in your abilities. Be thorough and disciplined in your approach. Treat this as if you were going back to school and learning a new skill or trade. Set aside time within your schedule to devote time to studying. A few hours a night or even every week spending time focusing upon learning the Tarot will help you. There’s only 78 cards so with a little discipline, it shouldn’t take very long to make your way through the entire deck and have a pretty good understanding.

The more knowledgeable you become the better you will become at divining the Tarot effectively. Seek to utilize and master this wonderful divination tool but always keep in mind, no matter how much we may master something we are always students learning and enhancing our understanding and the same applies to the art of Tarot.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Learning to Read the Tarot

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Often times when we are wanting to learn something, the material we need to study may seem overwhelming and confusing when there are various techniques and tons of dogma associated with a diverse topic; especially in regards to the Tarot. For centuries Tarot has eluded many with its mystical symbolism and divination properties that are believed to foretell the future. 

In fact, all of the symbolism and associated influences surrounding each individual card depicts a slew of information available to the querent (the person asking the question)and knowing which information is pertinent to that specific person can be intimidating to say the least.

As many known Tarot decks available on the market, there are just as many techniques to beginning the study of Tarot. This factor alone can be overwhelming and hinder the ability to absorb the information because there is a substantial amount of knowledge contained within each card. Although there are many decks available the cards are basically the same and provide a similar meaning with a little extra insight according to the opinion of the author.

So what exactly does that mean? Basically, it means that no matter what deck you begin with the same principles and information is available as contained within other decks it’s only varying in degree according to the viewpoint of the author. In other words, although I’m technically using the Rider-Waite Tarot deck the information applies to other decks as well and can be implemented. As each deck has a similar order and possess the Major and Minor Arcana cards, symbology, numeric factors, associated planetary, elemental, spiritual and psychological influences.

The best way that I have found personally and by helping others to understand the way Tarot works is by spending time meditating and focusing upon each card. Write down the information that intuitively comes to you before checking to see what the book has to say. Look closely in great detail at all of the symbols and elements you see presented in each card.

Another method I find helpful is by practicing 3 Card Spreads that way you are training your mind to see how the cards relate to each other and influence each other. This spread offers the simplest means of denoting past influences that brought you to the here and now, the challenges you face presently and what is likely to be the outcome if things go according to the way they are currently unfolding at the given time of the reading. When using this method, utilize your intuition before reading the interpretation from the book that comes with your specific deck. Also pay attention to any numbers and whether or not they are Major or Minor Arcana cards or Court cards. Read the information within your book that explain the positioning of these cards in a reading for more clarity.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Interpreting the cards seems to be the one aspect of Tarot that people tend to worry the most about. This is the one area that they usually lack confidence in their abilities to discern the meaning of the associated cards and the overall general message behind the reading.

Tarot is more than just reading cards to glimpse into the future. They are a tool that teaches more than just how to interpret images and symbols. They guide us on a journey within ourselves, as well as, assist us in building our confidence, enhancing our intuition and increasing our ability to decipher signs, symbols and patterns.

One of the biggest benefits that I have found is how much the Tarot actually can teach us. Truly it is as deep as you choose to take it in your individual quest for understanding the world around you; but keep in mind, everything around you is a reflection of what is going on within you. These elements and influences will be present in the cards that you choose; so pay attention to everything that is going on around and within yourself on many levels. Especially, paying close attention to your thoughts and emotions as these too will show themselves within the cards presented as wands or cups.

Sometimes we may try asking the same question in a different way but the cards still give us the same result which can be confusing and offer little help in understanding the answer. When this happens, often times I find that we tend to already know the answer we are second-guessing ourselves and looking for validation of what we already are aware of. Respectfully, that points you back to yourself to discern the answer or in that instance, to further evaluate your intuitive impressions because the answers are already within us we just have to tap into them.

That is where Tarot teaches us to become empowered and aware of our abilities, talents and strengths. It helps us to tap into universal understanding and wisdom that is within our subconscious mind that already knows the meaning of the symbols, images, signs and patterns going on within your life on every possible level. It helps assist us in the process of self awareness and getting in touch with who we truly are, what our gifts and abilities are that can help others in a positive way, as well as, how to make the most of those talents in a productive and beneficial way.

Part of getting in touch with one’s self is about learning how to trust and have faith in yourself. Don’t allow yourself to be deterred because someone else may not agree with your impression or interpretation. We are all each receptive to information the way that we best can identify with it. Sometimes despite other’s opinions, we have to be our own cheerleader and know that we feel the way we do for a reason; as well as, interpret things in a way that we can best derive meaning from.

Know that in some way the cards that are picked are a direct result of how best you will be receptive to the information. What you need to know will be revealed, you just have to pay attention to what your intuition and inner voice is telling you. My best advice on this subject is to have faith and trust in yourself to discern the information accurately and don’t second-guess yourself despite what the books may tell you the meanings are. The books are a reflection of the author’s opinion, as to why each Tarot book has the same basic principle meanings with an added twist for each one because our opinions and viewpoints vary in various degrees from other individuals but that doesn’t necessarily mean one is right and the other is wrong. It just simply is the best way we can comprehend and be receptive to information and discern understanding.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Reflections Within

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Consider if you will, the Tarot cards being likened to a crystal ball. Each card represents 78 individual puzzle pieces that make up the “big picture” that is your life path. And like images that appear within a crystal ball in bits and pieces, the Tarot works much in the same way. Each card denotes elements, influences and energies that are at play at the time the cards are being consulted.

Each card usually reflects various aspects or a combination of aspects simultaneously; such as, emotional, mental, spiritual and physical circumstances, limitations, attitudes, behaviors and so forth. The key is to recognize what symbolic representations reflect what aspects of our lives. In doing so, this will substantially help you interpret the cards and perceive a much more detailed reading; as opposed to just going off what the books say and often reflecting vague and limited information.

I cannot stress enough the importance of learning how to get away from the book and familiarize yourself with as much symbology as possible. This has been the greatest benefit for learning and understanding the Tarot for me personally. And believe me, I’ve tried every possible method available and none have even come close in comparison to the wealth of knowledge that is possible through your average Tarot-related resources.

It took me about 15 yrs. worth of studying the Tarot, symbology, a vast array of cultures, belief systems, religious viewpoints (theology), astrology, psychology, numerology, anthropology, ecology, and a whole myriad of other metaphysical and higher mind/science topics before I truly saw the potential and purpose behind the Tarot. Once everything finally clicked for me personally, it opened a whole new world of understanding and I think that with patience, perseverance and diligent study you will experience a similar outcome positively.

Granted each person is different and their learning style is unique and individualized, as well as, the true study of the Tarot. Typically, we tend to learn only what is taught us and most often, that information has been handed down by another source and it extends throughout the ages being taught with various methods, styles and viewpoints according to the “popular belief” associated with the cards’ interpretation.

Well, since we can only teach what we have been taught ourself, it’s no wonder we have a ton of the same material flying around the internet. The mass majority of that material you will find is mass produced with a few variations were and there in regards to the meaning of the Tarot, effective layouts, etc. Very rarely do you come across the true purpose, intent and journey that exists within The Path of the Tarot which ultimately is a tool for self discovery and enhancing your innate talents and abilities. The Tarot is such an effective tool that you may find that the cards them self become the teacher while opening your mind and helping you to utilize your intuition in such a way that the symbols, images and hidden meanings of the cards reveal themselves to you freely.

Seeds of Wisdom

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

I have often been asked, “What is the best way to go about learning how to read and interpret the Tarot cards?” “Should I follow the book to a tee or go with what I personally feel the card means?” “Why is it so confusing, why are there so many different methods?” “What am I really supposed to do with the cards?” 
Perhaps one or two of the aforementioned questions have crossed your mind at some point along the way. If so, perhaps I can offer some insight that may help you understand more about the nature, intent and tremendous wealth of knowledge that can be discovered through the study of The Path of the Tarot.

Truly it is an intricate and unique reflection of our own individual lives spilled upon the images, symbols and keywords associated with the cards as they journey through the path of the fool, all the way through, until victory and achievement of self mastery are found in The World card. The Tarot is more than just a means to find guidance upon worldly endeavors and concerns. It is far more expansive than you could presently comprehend without having achieved certain levels of self mastery and awakened to your truest potential and authentic spiritual essence/self.

So in this journey we call life, there are tools provided for those of us who seek wholeness and balance within ourselves and our lives. Who most usually are spiritually inclined, very charitable and good-hearted individuals seeking to make the world a better place. Tarot is such a tool to help you discover that true part of yourself that seeks a better, happier and more peaceful life that is blessed beyond measure and flows gently along life’s currents in a perfectly woven tapestry.

All is but an illusion to bring you to this point in time in which you can master the ability to see through the illusion to find yourself, understand your journey and the gifts that are within you awaiting to be of service to others in a positive and healing way. In other words, a tool that is so effective that it can truly help you become that which you truly envision yourself to be. The true person within you that beckons from deep within.

As I have mentioned before, leave no stone unturned upon your quest for self knowledge and understanding. The symbols are there for you reflecting your life, your path and the many illusions that each of us have placed around us throughout our whole life. The Tarot will help you to find the thread so that you can unravel those threads that have become limitation, suffering, unbalance and a myriad of other problems that may be ensuing at this time upon the path for many individuals.

Only through unraveling the webs we have woven in our lives can we discover the source of those illusions, their purpose and necessity for bringing you to your true awakening and self empowerment. If you integrate various viewpoints from a wide array of resources, it will help you to perceive a larger picture to help you find a small thin thread that interconnects all things thereby helping you to fit the pieces of the puzzle that are your life together in an intricate woven tapestry of divine perfection.

The choice is ultimately yours, you can either utilize the Tarot as it was intended for which is self discovery and helping others to understand their patterns, cycles and currents in their life that are keeping them in a state of self sabotage and limitation; or you can just blow it off, set it to the side and not really care about its usefulness, as well as, purpose and continue dealing with the obstacles that are always seeming to lurk around the corner or you can really open your eyes to looking beyond the illusion at the reflection within the cards that will guide you upon a magnificent journey of self discovery, wholeness and beauty that can drastically improve and enhance your life.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Seeing Beyond The Illusion

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Most often during our doubt and worry of whether or not we are interpreting the cards accurately, we tend to get so caught up in the “game” of battle of the wills within ourselves. Simply put, we go through a period of time in which we try to talk our self out of trusting our intuition in essence; whether that is evident or not is beside the point. Typically, we are taught to question everything we think or feel. To be skeptical and to try steering clear of anything deemed different or against the grain. This leads to a vicious cycle of self doubt and incessant worry over whether or not what we are feeling or intuit is actually our intuition or is it something we heard or read somewhere?  Think about it, most of our lives, we are expected to go with the flow of what our parents and society consider normal thinking, feelings and reactions. Then you stumble upon something such as the Tarot that speaks deep within your being calling your awareness to it. Initially, you may not have any clue as to why but feel something will change for the better somehow, some way by looking into the Tarot. In your quest for learning, you may have encountered others who do not believe in the Tarot or stereotype them into being something that they are not. As with anything, everyone has an opinion or viewpoint regarding such a controversial subject matter as the Tarot. Are you the type who is a follower or do you look for ways to find understanding in the world around you? If you’re the latter, then the Tarot may be a key to help you discover much about the world and life that you never considered looking at before. Not to mention, it is an opportunity for you to look within yourself and go upon a wonderful journey to discover who you truly are within. The fabric that makes up the tapestry that is your life path is intricately woven and perfectly designed. See yourself within the images of the cards, find yourself within the symbology of the Major Arcana reflecting all of the various phases and cycles within your life that has transpired to this moment in time. The Minor Arcana show you the everyday aspects of your life that truly represent the ebbs and flows of your life. What you are experiencing on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. Look around you, take stock of what is occurring within your life on every level and see the mirror image before you reflected in the cards. All is but an illusion to bring you to this point in time, in the here and now so that you may discover your innate beauty, grace, truth and abilities that are hidden deep within because of all the debris and toxins that have cluttered us and our sacred space. The Native Americans believe that we each walk a sacred path called the Medicine Wheel that is divided up into various directions, elements, lessons and aspects of your life that must be experienced and learned in order for you to move on to the next spoke (lesson) on the wheel. The Tarot is that path broken down into small steps along the way. Breathe within you the sweet nectar of life and discover the perfect tapestry that is intricately woven that makes up the beautiful treasure that lays beneath the surface for each person to discover in their own unique way. The journey is awaiting, soften your focus and read between the lines, see with unlimited vision and trust that what feelings, impressions, insight and thoughts that come to you while gazing into the symbols of each card. Life is like a crystal ball, you just have to look within and adjust your focus so that you can see more clearly. The Tarot cards provide a means for you to gaze within your life and expand your awareness into who you are and how to tap into that hidden potential. Be still and walk softly as you journey upon the path to self discovery through the Tarot. To Your Divinatory Success! Much Love & Many Blessings,

Many individuals who are learning to read the Tarot often times become concerned with the accuracy of the interpretation. This is understandable but also sometimes quite confusing. When doing a reading don’t get obsessive over the meaning and outcome of the reading. That may sound like a contradiction in terms but really it’s not if you truly stop for a moment and think about it.

When doing a reading the influences that are surrounding you or the individual getting a reading are only there for a short period of time. Our thoughts, actions, decisions and numerous other elements and influences change the flow of things in our life literally in the blink of an eye. While keeping that in mind, don’t obsess over a reading you did 3 months ago and still haven’t figured out it’s meaning. If that’s the case, you’re most likely missing the point all together.

The Tarot is a means of guidance, a glimpse of how things are fairing in your environment and life and what things are currently affecting you in some way. Sometimes this can be something from the past that still is unresolved but is still needing to be dealt with or it would not keep coming up for you to experience.

While that may be true, keep in mind that the guidance is only useful at the given time of the reading. Sure it may apply for several days or even months but it’s not intended to be an exactness of what to expect. It is a mere glimpse of what is occurring or may occur if elements, influences and conditions continue as they are at that given moment of consulting the cards.

They are meant in a literal sense that the outcome is not set in stone as you or the one receiving the reading can alter the outcome by changes in thinking, actions, attitudes, behaviors, etc. I know that it is very challenging trying to learn the Tarot and yet at the same time feel completely overwhelmed by the meanings and accuracy.

Although there are tons of resources available on the individual card meanings they do change per individual based upon the unique circumstances so take into consideration that whatever comes to mind while seeing each card is what you should be paying the most attention to despite what the books say. Trusting your intuition is far more accurate than that of another’s opinion on the matter.

The point is, yes you can reflect on the card reading for a few days if need be; but after that the information is basically useless as circumstances, energies, influences and elements have all changed since the reading was last done. So in that case, if you’re still needing clarification, pull one card asking for it to clarify what you are needing to acknowledge and learn from the previous reading and whatever card comes up intuitively get a feel for the card first before moving on to see what the books have to say.

Stop brow beating yourself to death over trying to figure out the meaning. The main purpose of the Tarot is not just for guidance and a glimpse but also to teach you to be in tune with your innermost self and intuition. The more you allow yourself to listen to your inner voice and intuitive promptings the quicker the whole concept of Tarot will become easier for you to understand.

Trust me, let down your fear of being wrong and just allow yourself simply to be with your cards and listen to what impressions are coming forth for you to ponder. And some questions, there are no clear answers for a reason. Often times that is because we are either not intended to know at that given time or our focus is on something that isn’t truly in our best interest. So be sensible with your questions and trust your intuition to guide the process.

Once you overcome these beginning challenges you will find it much easier to understand their associated meanings, as well as, be more confident in your approach and abilities. It’s a process, allow it to unfold.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Setting The Record Straight

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

No one really knows how old the Tarot actually is. Some say 500 yrs. old and some depict the images and symbols as dating back to 1 BC, if not further. As the faces of the cards have changed over the centuries, so too has their purpose. Our modern day society always tends to portray a gypsy-type individual doing fortunetelling with the cards; which is a stereotype that is far-stretching the real purpose and intent of the Tarot. And with that stereotype typically it is associated as a negatively aspected subject matter and often times deemed “evil” or “dangerous”. I’ve even heard them referred to as “Devil Cards”. How sad and unfortunate that so many individuals are close-minded and are unwilling to seek understanding themselves; instead they ridicule and mock those who are associated with the Tarot.

As far as the portrayal of a gypsy-type individual that stems from a time period when there was great suffering and adversity when trying to support one’s family was extremely difficult in very poor areas. As with anything else, people find a way to monetize everything and it’s origination was a means of survival to help feed their families. As back then, they would barter their ability to read the cards for money, food, clothing and any other supplies that could be beneficial to them. Thus, gypsies were perhaps the most popular reference to the usage of Tarot that our present day stereotypes stem from. But by no means were they the only known users of the Tarot. Due to the symbology associated with the Tarot, some scholars even believe them to have been utilized in ancient Egyptian ceremonies and rituals. Most usually, they are identified with Pagan, Wiccan and Celtic belief systems or better known to be associated as followers of Witchcraft. However, there have been variations of the Tarot cards found throughout the majority of cultures and religious belief systems.

The true intent and purpose of the Tarot cards is to be used as a tool designed for expanding one’s awareness and the world around them. Since our minds tend to think in terms of symbols, it makes perfect sense that these cards were designed with that concept in mind. Anything can be utilized as a tool it depends upon the intention and purpose an individual places upon an object. Just like having a lucky charm, to that individual it is lucky; to another it may be completely asinine and ridiculous. The point is, we each can choose what purpose an object will serve, be it positively or negatively aspected. And this stands true especially for the Tarot cards. The only significance anything holds is that which we personally place upon it. Therefore, in lieu of that concept, the Tarot can be utilized as a tool for foretelling the future based upon present circumstances and influences surrounding the individual at the time of consulting the Tarot cards.

Each card depicts and represents the phases, cycles and transitions that we encounter in our lifetime. As with most cycles, they represent the stages and patterns that are associated with those various aspects. They symbolically represent the influences of individuals surrounding us, qualities within ourselves that we harness but do not utilize to their fullest potential, our interaction with others whether in a relationship, friendship or in our environment. It can help an individual determine what course of action to proceed in regards to their career, relationship and making important decisions. It can help an individual get in touch with their intuition and listening to their gut instincts. It can help an individual explore one’s own self and find understanding upon their path based upon past experiences and actions. These however are only a small portion of the capabilities and benefits of utilizing the Tarot.

Of course, the Tarot can be utilized to profit financially but that is not what the true nature of the cards are. They were intended for personal guidance and enhancing one’s knowledge of their own individual path. It’s purpose is varied depending on the individual and what they want the cards to be used for in reality. If given the chance, most people would want to know more about what is occurring within their lives in various aspects. The Tarot is one way of achieving that and a means to foresee what may lie ahead. Just like astrology, millions of people check their horoscopes every single day to see what the day may bring and thus, the Tarot is an alternative for those who are interested in learning a more detailed in depth look within their life and a means to find understanding as to why they are experiencing certain events and patterns, what course of action should be taken and what is the probable outcome should events continue as they currently are at the time of the reading.

The Tarot helps to establish a clearer understanding of how your thoughts and actions create the experiences within life for each individual; as no two people walk the same identical path. The same cards pulled in one person’s reading will not mean the same exact thing for another person if they came up in their reading as well. Therefore, it is individualized and personal an instrument that is most usually considered a sacred tool that deserves utmost respect and should be highly valued and taken care of. With anything you study, research and practice you will grow stronger and more adept in understanding what the cards represent and symbolize for you personally; individually. It is a unique relationship for each individual who does read the Tarot. For some it is a life long process of self discovery and for others it’s a means to be able to stay one step ahead by knowing what influences and unforeseen obstacles may get in the way of their plans or what to do about a certain situations, etc.

It was the Tarot that first piqued my interest into studying symbology which, of course, led me to studying Theology regarding various cultures, religions and belief systems thereby enhancing my own understanding of the Tarot cards. It has lead me to study numerology, astrology, earth medicine, working with energy and directions, Native American Shamanism, medicine wheels, witchcraft, paganism, Celtic belief systems, Christianity, in depth study of the bible and various other ancient texts,Egyptian and a whole myriad of other belief systems and symbologies. And that is only a mere portion of all that I have studied in depth over the last 20 years all because I wanted to know more about the Tarot and what all the symbols mean. So the bottom line is, you can choose to go as deep into studying the Tarot in all of it’s aspects or you can get a vague generalized idea of the cards and what they mean and that’s fine too, it’s entirely up to each individual depending on how far they are willing to go in seeking understanding. It’s your journey, no one else can make it for you but if you’d like to have a useful tool that can help you better understand things happening in your life then the Tarot might just be for you and you’ll never know unless you try and intuitively you’ll know if it’s something for you or not. I’ll go into more details in future articles as we continue to explore the fascinating world of the Tarot.

With the mass information readily available pertaining to the Tarot, you may find yourself at times overwhelmed by all of the methods, meanings, decks, books, techniques and layouts, and so forth. I know first-handedly that in the beginning something that should be somewhat easy to understand can easily turn into a total nightmare with the mass overload of information. Whether it’s the Tarot specifically or any other endeavor in our life, we tend to follow suit with expected standards and as a result take something simple and turn it into a battle of our wills doubting ourselves and our abilities because that is how we have been “programmed” to react.

Subjects of controversy, ill-stereotyping and misrepresented automatically are deemed as being weird, strange, unacceptable and generally frowned upon by society at large but this all has been due to a lack of understanding the true nature of the Tarot. In other words, since antiquity the Tarot was deemed a negative, unnatural and rebellious subject matter that defied the church and government. As a result, anyone participating in the art of divination was considered fraudulent and the ability to divine future events or tell fortune’s through divinatory methods was nothing more than a scam; which has negatively impacted Tarot readers throughout history and around the world currently.

Automatically there is apprehension or iffiness as to whether you should even be associated with such topics of interest. Then once the decision is made to give it a try, we tend to navigate towards a period of questioning ourselves and our abilities that seem to go against the grain of traditional viewpoints. The battle of proving to ourselves what we feel, intuit or divine from symbols, Tarot or other divination tools is worth listening to or accurate information can lead to a lot of confusion, anxiety and deepening fearful emotions regarding the validation of our own self. In reality, in this way, we are given the opportunity to release things within us that no longer serve a purpose and help to transform our life in more positive, healing and peaceful ways.

So, how can I sort out the confusion and stop the sanity; you may be asking. The Path of the Tarot is actually an intricately woven tapestry that provides insight into your life path through various levels and aspects of yourself. The word Tarot (also referenced as being spelled Torah) means Life. The Path of the Tarot quite literally is The Path of Life artistically displayed throughout the images of the Major and Minor Arcana.

With this in mind, gather some quiet time to yourself and set down with your deck in a relaxed and receptive state. Gaze into each card and see the reflection of your life and journey displayed before you throughout the cards. This is a helpful exercise if the cards are placed in order according to their suit and original order (follow the book to put it back in order if need be)in order to more fully understand the intricate design that has been woven into the Tarot that reflect and represent your life in this way we learn to see beyond the illusion into the true nature of the card’s original intent and meaning.

The more you work with the Tarot the more efficient you will become. Have faith in yourself and trust in the process that is unfolding before you and see yourself reflected with the Tarot. By doing so, it will greatly enhance your intuition, improve your divination skills and boost your self confidence. Patience is a virtue, through patience and diligence we begin to see the threads of the intricate tapestry that is your life that has been woven tightly awaiting you to pull the chord to unravel and reveal its underlying meaning and purpose. When you look within the Tarot, you are looking within yourself. The Tarot becomes a mirror image of your life. Through it you can positively transform your life and enhance your understanding of life through The Path of the Tarot.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Tapping In Through The Tarot

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

For centuries the use of Tarot has found its way into the pages of history time-after-time in various and unusual ways. If you study some of the older pagan cultures you will find a great deal of information pointing to the use of Tarot cards for foretelling the future, as well as, a tool for ritualistic purposes during ceremony. So what exactly does all this mean you may be asking.

Well for starters, we know that virtually anything can be utilized as a tool that we can embue power into through focused thought and energy. The Tarot’s influential cards provided the perfect component to assist the witch or medicine person the right blend of elements and influences to aide them in conjuring up spells or even better yet to tap into hidden universal knowledge and mysteries of old. Here’s one of the methods I found along the way:

To tap into the subconscious mind for knowledge, find the following Tarot cards: The Moon (impenetrable depths of the subconscious mind, realm of imagination, magick, illusions, inspiration, intuition and dreams), The High Priestess (desire to access hidden knowledge and to be able to unlock any mystery), The Hermit (light will illuminate secrets wanting unlocked, light penetrates all illusions and self-deceptions).

Place these 3 cards in row in front of you with a candle centered above. Meditate on these 3 cards then light the candle and stare at the candle’s flame while saying: “The image of this flame is the key to my unconscious mind. Whenever I call upon this image, hidden knowledge will be brought to light.”

Now close your eyes and try to keep the image of the flame in your mind as long as possible then say, “I look deep within me. I draw wisdom from the depths of my unconscious mind. All knowledge is here for me. All channels of guidance are open for me. Everything I want to know is revealed to me. Everything is made clear to me. As I will, so it is and so shall it be!”

When posing questions, set down and call upon the embedded flame of your mind. Speak your question(s) aloud, relax and meditate for the answer. If feeling impelled to do something else then do so, follow your own inner guidance and make sure to record your dreams after using this technique as the answers will come in some form; most often through our dreams or sudden bursts of insight.

I have more of these types of techniques if you’d like to see different ways to utilize your Tarot cards to enhance your intuition, understanding and help you tap into your own hidden potential then drop me a line and let me know! Your feedback helps me know what type of information you’re looking for so always feel free to drop me a line or ask questions!

Tarot Spreads for the New Year

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

Each New Year provides us the ability to start anew, set goals and with any luck have a better, happier and more prosperous year than the last. However, the previous year may have been filled with challenges, obstacles and changes that have taken the zest out of life leaving some filled with apprehension as to what to expect in the coming New Year.

One way of getting a glimpse into what the New Year has in store for us is through utilizing the Tarot. There are various spreads available specifically geared towards the New Year. One of the most common is called The Zodiac Spread which provides a couple different options to obtain a yearly based reading. The typical Zodiac Spread is similar to the Celtic Cross. This spread looks at different aspects and areas of your life.

To do this spread, pull 13 cards placing them in a circle with the final card being the overall outcome or summary. The cards in each position are as follows:

1. deals with self expression, identity and how you see yourself.
2. represents tangible assets, personal income and earning capacity.
3. governs intellect and communication, family and relatives.
4. rules your home, property and the environment you find yourself in.
5. associated with pleasurable pursuits, romance and fortunate speculative ventures.
6. pertains to your job, working conditions, relationship with co-workers and circumstances regarding your health.
7. refers to partnerships, agreements, business relationships and close personal relationships including marriage and divorce.
8. governs death, rebirth, legacies, inheritances and new beginnings.
9. governs spiritual guidance and self awareness, travel, and often times denotes the best course of action for you to take.
10. describes your goals, ambitions, achievements, desires and success.
11. associated with friendships and affiliations that help to advance your personal goals.
12. denotes anxiety and hidden influences that can cause limitations and unnecessary suffering.
13. final outcome.

Another method of The Zodiac Spread is the month-by-month spread in which you pull 13 cards one representing each month of a the year and the final card indicates the overall general atmosphere you are likely to experience over the coming year according to the influences and elements present at the time of the reading.

Months that have a Major Arcana card land in that position will signify an important month. Any Aces that appear indicate a chance for new beginnings or a fresh start so pay particular attention to those cards and influences.

These are only a few examples but they are quite effective and informative in providing valuable insight into the New Year. And remember this is only a glimpse of possibilities as nothing is set in stone. Should you encounter a card that doesn’t really provide clear insight, feel free to use clarification cards to assist the process.

To Your Divinatory Success!

The Hierophant

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

The Hierophant usually enters our life during the time in which we are seeking understanding in our quest for the meaning of life. Often times, the Hierophant may physically represent a priest, spiritual mentor, teacher or therapist of some sort that offers comfort and assistance during our times of confusion or during appropriate times in which we are needing direction.

Also here we may encounter the inner teacher, our higher self or spiritual essence. The part of ourselves that contains universal knowledge and ancient wisdom. Often times, this is considered the subconscious mind, as well as, the Akashic Records which basically means that everything we have ever experienced or known throughout our many lifetimes is apart of our spiritual essence that can be tapped into and that knowledge can be utilized in the here and now during this incarnation.

Our inner teacher also known as our inner guide, the voice within, our intuition, as well as, various other names. It is that part of ourselves that understands and knows natural and spiritual laws which typically is held within the subconscious mind.

When the Hierophant appears in a spread, it usually denotes changes in our philosophical views and belief systems. During this time frame, there is a great deal of sorting through and discerning the difference between what we have always been led to believe and how we personally view those beliefs. A time of releasing the opinions of others and figuring out exactly what you feel to be true or correct for you individually while discarding that which no longer serves a purpose.

If we are harnessing a ton of old, out-dated belief systems and philosophical viewpoints that do not necessarily reflect our own beliefs then we are filled with a bunch of unnecessary debris that essentially blocks us and as the old adage goes, “A cup that is already full, has no more room.” Thereby, releasing all that junk within that’s just taking up space and not serving a purpose allows for more beneficial information to be discerned and more positive opportunities to present themselves.

So during this time frame, one may find themselves more drawn towards studying philosophy, spirituality, other belief systems and cultures and come to their own conclusions based upon their own feelings and receptivity to the information available. Basically, it is a time of trying to find one’s self and their innate purpose.

So the role of the Hierophant can be indicative of a physical teacher or simply a time in which one becomes more willing to listen to the teacher within to discern their life path and purpose. It’s a time of seeking the hidden meaning and mysteries of life through study and reflection.

The Path of the Fool

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

As we begin examining the Major Arcana, the first card we encounter is the Fool. How appropriate considering the Fool represents new beginnings or the beginning stages of a journey.

Before I get too carried away with the Fool’s associated meaning, I want to set the record straight. Many individuals automatically assume the Fool is negatively aspected based upon the title “The Fool”. However, that is far from the truth.

Upon beginning something new, we are most usually curious but lack knowledge and understanding because the situation is completely new; never before having been experience. Yet we are standing at the threshold of new opportunities by standing in the position of the Fool. There is also untapped potential, skills and abilities we may possess but not fully know how to utilize them.

So, the Fool, then represents the start of something new in our lives in some aspect or level of our beingness. This can relate to virtually anything we may attempt at the given time this card appears in a reading. A new relationship, a new job or career, new outlook on life, education or some form of training, develop new skills or abilities, change in location and spiritual advancement; to name a few.

We are asked to step with the courage of an adolescent youth, carefree and happy-go-lucky; unaware of other influences surrounding us as we enter into the unknown. This could also include a tendency to be vulnerable and easily influenced in the early stages.

If doing a Keltic Cross Spread, pay attention to what is crossing the individual’s path, as this may provide clues if the individual is being taken advantage of due to their lack of knowledge, experience or awareness.

Simply put, the Fool is alikened to a teenager who is about to embark upon their own individual path with a newfound freedom and sense of self; not yet aware of the dangers and pitfalls ahead. Through curiosity, they begin to experience life, gain understanding and knowledge as they courageously journey through the Major Arcana. Each time we begin anew, we again become the Fool at the beginning unaware of the lessons and knowledge needed to master this stage of the process for it is only through living and experiencing life that we truly begin to learn and understand the path before us.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Much Love & Many Blessings,

The Path Of The Tarot

   Posted by: admin   in The Path of the Tarot

One of the most unique aspects of the Tarot cards is their direct relation to our lives and various aspects and phases within it. As we learn and grow in our understanding through our life experiences, we also pass through many different cycles as represented by the cards. Youth, maturity and death. These are inevitable aspects of life. We are constantly beginning anew, maturing in our understanding and enduring endings which become a repetitive cycle that is never ending. Each time we experience an ending we open ourselves up to new opportunities and new beginnings. Thus, the Tarot cards accurately depict these cycles and rites of passage.

For every aspect of our lives there is a relative Tarot card associated with it. Just as the Tarot is a story of symbols laid out in the artistry of the cards, so too is our life laid out in such an artistic and brilliant way. By studying the Tarot one has the opportunity to truly see these magnificent patterns. Evolving, expanding and growing in understanding of the lessons needed in order to live life more fully and in a balanced way.

The Major Arcana depicts these phases and passages that we go through. Each one dealing with a specific part of our life path; spiritually and physically aspected. So in essence, it is the journey of our human experience. By paying attention to the Tarot cards & watching their story unfold, one can directly apply those same lessons and patterns to their own life. As a result, see a greater reflection of their lives laid out before them within the cards themselves.

The Major Arcana represents the major changes and transitions we make in our lives. The Minor Arcana represents the smaller everyday mundane stuff like relationships, financial stability, dreams, aspirations and a multitude of other things that create challenges and keeps life interesting. The Minor Arcana charts the ebbs and flows of these everyday experiences.

As you work your way through the Tarot, you will become more aware of these types of cycles, patterns and phases in your life. Pay attention to these signs and symbols as you encounter them and then look back at the Tarot to reveal more pertaining to that particular energy and situation.

Journaling these experiences will prove to be helpful. So, the path of the Tarot represents your life path. By studying and learning the Tarot and its associated symbology, you inevitably become more aware of your own life and the journey that is before you.

To Your Divinatory Success!

Finally Spring has emerged regardless of what the weather is. Some areas may still be feeling the effects of winter giving rise to “cabin fever” and the need to kick things into gear with spring cleaning, reorganizing, re-prioritizing and preparing for life to get busy once again. It’s good to have a nice reprieve and some downtime but sometimes winter is depressing and too long. And in anticipation, we await that time of year where we can once again become more active outside and enjoy the returning sun’s warmth. The seasons and weather may not be the only thing you’ve noticed changing lately. Is it just me or are others also noticing a shift in themselves and people around you? I am more frequently seeing more and more individuals having surgery or being sick lately. With all these up rushing energies from our planetary shift, it’s really beginning to stir up a lot of issues for the masses in various ways.

….The day I originally started writing this in the early morning hours on April 5, 2013 prior to going to bed from the night before. Upon waking later that afternoon shortly thereafter, my father passed away. And since that time I have spoken with many friends whom also have either had a death in the family or has a friend who has experienced a death. Especially a lot of parental deaths for many but primarily paternal ones have seemingly been the status quo as of late since the Spring Equinox. In essence I’d say that would indicate a lot of our parents who have chosen to pass through the veil and physically ascend have paved the way for us to reach greater heights through their sacrificing of self to the highest degree in order to help us and humanity to ascend as well.

In this day and age, with so many confusing occurrences going on around us it’s easy to get side-tracked by the wayside trying to help everybody catch up or provide for them in some way to assist their development or plea for help in whatever way that may be whether it’s through time, money, giving away things or energy spent helping them physically, as well as, spiritually. Sometimes I think we try to so hard to help everybody we know or hear about needs helping and in the process we tend to put our own needs and goals on the back burner because we feel such a sense of obligation to humanity. While this may feel good helping others, often times we find ourselves a midst inner turmoil over not being able to fulfill our own desires, dreams and goals because we’re so busy trying to help save everybody else in the belief that we should always be a willing participant wherever there’s someone in need.

Sometimes that turmoil isn’t always internal, sometimes it may even spill over into the physical environment around us and we all know surely by now that if we focus too much on one particular aspect then the other ones will suffer. And this happens frequently to some people their whole lives are spent focusing more on helping make others happy or save them from themselves that they lose sight of what’s going on within their own world and begin neglecting their own issues which further just complicates matters. I know that on more than one occasion, I personally have found myself a midst clutter, chaos and in  a state of crisis where I’d spent way too much time focusing on the needs of someone else rather than myself, my home or my goals.

While that may have been our predominant role over the past 25 yrs. I strongly feel that the way in which we utilize that role may be changing drastically over the next few years. Don’t get me wrong, I still feel there will be those few stray souls that will need our guidance and assistance but the way in which we apply that assistance I feel will change compared to before. I feel that instead of physically spending time, money or energy on people we’ll be more focused on spiritually uplifting them through our positive thoughts, healing energies and prayers.

Too often, other individuals who are lost upon their paths of self awareness and discovery, out of fear of the unknown will choose to target lightworkers or those whom they feel they can push off their responsibilities onto. In other words, placing their burdens and problems at your doorstep to pretty much solve their problems for them or help get them out of situations they have created for themselves. Being empathetic, compassionate, caring individuals us lightworkers can sometimes be naive or easily taken advantage of because of our kindness; often it is thought of as a weakness. In the process, over the years trying to save everybody and everything, somehow we’ve become at a standstill or better yet a crossroads upon our path.

So many of us out there KNOW that we still have much work to do and yet, all these outside things keep vying for our attention taking us further away from actively working towards our goals. I think we are being given a choice as to how we are wanting to choose to fulfill our roles as lightworkers and healers. With so many still trapped in the 3D mentality easily those we try to help that refuse to help themselves tend to pull us down to lower vibrations regardless of how high we may be when they pull us into their drama and constantly wear us down with all their problems. We are sympathetic, overly compassionate and try hard to take care of everybody we know. But when are we going to take care of ourselves and replenish ourselves from all that we’ve given and done to help others? If we do not take the time to nurture ourselves it makes it even more difficult to take care of others when we can’t take care of our own self for wearing ourselves too thin and burning the candle at both ends?

It is time for us to seek solace in our own sacred spaces, renew, rejuvenate and replenish our own energies and well being as some of us have been hit pretty hard over the years during our ascensionary process and trying to be it all and do it all trying to fulfill our roles as caretakers of our precious earth and all of creation.  I think it’s time for us to reiterate how we chose to utilize our skills and apply our energies.  Garner our strength and prepare ourselves for when we really will be called into our greatest service and work in the not-so-distant future. We need to regather ourselves and refocus ourselves upon our spiritual paths and healing ourselves of all that we’ve endured emotionally, mentally and physically upon the path these last 20 plus years and some even longer than that.

This is not a selfish act. For how can we be our greatest potential if we are overtired, over stressed, neglecting our needs for others and not doing the things that bring us joy? We’ve spent the greatest amount of our lives doing for others trying to help them lighten their load and burdens when are we going to extend the same courtesy to ourselves as lightworkers and healers? We give everyone else the courtesy of our time, energy and attention; when are we going to give ourselves some of that too? So while we may be living in a world that’s vastly changing in the blink of the eye in what may appear as a very bad direction and filled with utter chaos doesn’t mean that’s the reality we have to perceive. We have to keep focusing our light towards the healing, upliftment and peaceful resolve that will help awaken the masses from their stupor so they may see beyond the illusions and realize their authentic self, potential and purpose as well.

While we refocus our attention upon our own personal development, dreams and goals we need to forge ahead cautiously but with determination towards fulfilling our divine purpose. Get back to what’s important, get back to what brings utmost joy and contentment within our own immediate environment and send forth that joy, peace, contentment and happiness into the world to assist the collective consciousness of this planet and truly bring about peace upon the earth. I guess instead of focusing upon people individually it’s more of a collective scenario where our skills are needed more towards the expansion and awakening of the collective consciousness of humanity as a whole rather than a one-on-one basis as has been in times past.

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Keep Your Eyes On The Horizon

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

When life gets crazy and things seemed to be turned upside down, the most important thing we can do is keep our eyes on the horizon and our mind on whatever goals we’re trying to achieve. Because focusing upon the drama, chaos and confusion only intensifies those elements at play further wreaking havoc within your life.  Usually when we get ourselves caught up within the chaos and drama, it not only makes things more chaotic; but it also has a tendency to take our attention off of what’s important and what we’re trying accomplish.  I believe the mass majority of individuals have found themselves within that type of situation at one time or another throughout their lifetime; some even on more than one occasion. Of course there are those who never seem to learn this lesson and end up creating vicious cycles of chaos and drama within their lives and everybody else around them.

With all the things that are occurring within the world today it’s very easy to get caught up in the drama. When we hear the word “Drama” we typically think of personal dramas or family drama. However, what about political drama, TV/Movie Star/Entertainment drama and of course the planetary drama that’s been going on since the beginning of time? How caught up in those type of drama are people these days? By the looks of the constant state of chaos, confusion and degradation of humanity I’d have to say there’s an awful lot of people perpetuating the drama. Especially by constantly focusing, discussing and dwelling on all the negatives thereby feeding more fuel to the fire.

It is a sad shape of the world, when the mass majority focus most of their attention on all the bad stuff that’s going on in the world. The more attention given to the bad, the more “bad” gets amplified and enhanced. We have turned into a world of “victim consciousness” and are taught to be “fear-based”.  As well as, constantly being bombarded by the media of more “bad” stuff to worry about, dwell on and become fearful of.  Why can’t people understand that in and of itself is brainwashing and creating the very things they don’t want to see happening by the attention placed upon those very ideas, notions and concepts?

It’s one thing to be informed, it’s another to obsess over every little bad thing that hits the newspapers, TV or social media sites. And buying into the misinformation and fabricated stories seems to be the common theme these days because people are so caught up in the “illusion” and cannot see clearly that they are perpetuating the lies, problems and keeping peace further away. All of this “crap” has taken us away from what’s really important to us, as well as, making it seem impossible to focus on our own individual goals, ambitions and dreams.

When the world around us is going crazy, it’s better to be cool, calm and collected in order to think clearly rather than continue living blindly like the masses who are hopelessly enslaved and aren’t even aware of it. It’s time to get back to the basics, define our priorities and keep our eyes focused upon our goals. We have been manipulated and controlled for far too long, isn’t it time to “WAKE UP?”.

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Springing Forward Into Action

   Posted by: admin   in Echoes From The Suwanne

Saturday night we sat our clocks ahead making way to enjoy more “light” throughout our days now that Spring is nearly here. And Monday we were greeted with the New Moon’s energy bursting forth with optimism and a fresh breath of inspiration as life shifts from it’s deep wintry slumber into springing forth in awareness as life around us emerges.  New growth and life is all around us in nature the closer we get to the Equinox the more noticeable it becomes.

For some people, it’s a major shift from the winter’s depressive tendencies and overall austere melancholy to the emergence of Spring’s renewing energy. Once the weather breaks, animals begin scurrying, wildflowers begin blooming and trees budding. There’s a pull to become more active, get outside and busy tilling the gardens, cleaning up the residue of winter, planting flowerbeds and sowing seeds for your future harvest.

All of which require a lot of energy and effort that we may feel is lacking after the hibernation of winter and wondering how in the world will we be able to accomplish everything? During winter, time seems to drag on and even stand still sometimes. But once Spring gets here, the days seem to fly right by, each week seeming to grow in momentum.  During which time, many individuals find themselves scrambling to find ways in which to increase their physical energy through diet, exercise, herbal mixtures, meditation or various other methods and techniques.

Spring is also a time in which many people begin awakening and expanding their consciousness, renewing themselves in spirit and purpose, as well as, often times enhance their image or skills. Truly it is a miraculous time in which everything becomes revived and anew. Animals begin mating, trees begin sprouting their new foliage, birds build new nests to lay their eggs, and the world around us seems to go through a quickening of growth.

In essence, when the world around us appears to be alive, we too feel much more lively and better than when we are secluded and our sense of freedom hindered when it’s cold and dreary outside.  We often feel the urgency to get our affairs in order, prioritize our lives, establish better routines and basically get our shit together now that the season of slacking off and being lazy is behind us. This can induce anxiety in many individuals as responsibilities pile on with the warmer weather and growing seasons. Which can of course invoke fear and worry making it a stressful and chaotic time of year.

We must not allow things to rob us of our ability to enjoy and experience life on a daily basis, regardless of the season. More importantly, getting so wrapped up in all the to-do’s and demands of family/friends that we can’t stop long enough to smell the beautiful flowers we pass by or watch the insects busy working. Pay attention to the small things that add beauty and  color to our world and see those very things reflected back to us in our lives.

Each Spring, Easter is celebrated showcasing the ability to renew ourselves and ascend above our pain, struggle and worldly circumstances in order to achieve whatever goal we have set for ourselves spiritually and physically speaking. Each year, we are given another opportunity in which to better ourselves, our lives, our circumstances, and so forth. It is in how we choose to take action towards manifesting those very things into our lives that yields the final result by year’s end. Some years we may fair pretty well, other’s not so good and every once in awhile we may have a very trying and difficult year but in looking back in all actuality the true culprit would be ourselves and/or our past actions that brought forth those situations in which we can only blame ourselves for our failures or shortcomings.

In lieu of knowing that, now is the perfect opportunity to take necessary steps towards making positive changes within our lives to enhance and improve ourselves and circumstances. Sometimes people and life itself has a way of keeping us sidetracked, we must discipline ourselves more firmly in order to prevent ourselves from falling short of accomplishing our goals yet another year.  In 2013, we need to once-and-for-all take the bull by the horns and regain control over our lives. We know what doesn’t work in our lives and we know what does. It’s time to release what isn’t and embrace that which is, especially the individuals within our lives that support us, make us feel good about ourselves and unconditionally love us.

Circumstances are governed so much around the world via politics, media, religion, technology, etc. that creates a lot of conflict and indifference keeping everyone on edge and divided, insecure, panic-stricken and enslaved. There’s too much drama and chaos intentionally floating around. We must not allow ourselves to fall prey to the illusion and manipulative tactics. Focus not on our limitations but on our unlimited potential and the ability to creatively solve our own problems in positive and healing ways. We must not become bogged down by the illusion to the point we lose sight of your own goals.

Here’s to a Marvelous Spring!

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Riding The Retro Storm Out

   Posted by: admin   in Beyond The Illusion

I don’t know if any of you have been feeling the effects of Mercury’s retrograde over the past few weeks or even know someone who has been, but the best thing we can do at this point is ride the storm out until Mercury goes direct again. By then all the chaos, confusion and craziness will have calmed down and provide us the means to more clearly discern what our options are.  Of course, in the meantime, we should think about reorganizing our priorities, weighing the pros and cons of whatever situation you may find yourself battling and try to discern what the best course of action is that is in alignment with you and your families needs.

During these challenging times, we may often feel bewildered or even taken completely by surprise by the events that transpire around us. However, if we look at things from a more positive stand point all of this wackiness serves a purpose in helping to reestablish priorities, as well as, to force a resolution to things that aren’t working in your favor or to bring things out of alignment back into proper perspective after shattering the illusions that have built walls and created riffs within relationships or circumstances. 

For many individuals, these types of situations can wreak absolute havoc and induce panic especially when it brings with it drama. And the individuals undergoing such a transformation are unaware of what’s going on behind the scenes or are not in tune with themselves or the natural “flow” of things. However, Mercury may “appear” to be the bad guy, but in reality he merely is assisting in helping to shake up situations so that we can find ways to move forward in our lives. Whether that be a change in circumstances or a change in attitude; most usually a little bit of both. 

When we become too comfortable to the point that lethargy sets in and we become stagnated allowing for no movement in any direction because of our “attachments” or “preconceived notions” about ourselves, our lives and the perpetual rut we sometimes find ourselves in. The “air” and “space” we find ourselves in sometimes may often times begin to deteriorate as all the elements around us begin to collapse. You know what I’m talking about, when events don’t exactly pan out how you thought they would or sometimes how no matter how hard you try to get ahead it’s like spinning your wheels in the mud nothing seems to help. And of course, there’s the times when nothing seems to go right no matter how much effort taken to ensure that it would or even things and events in your life seem to be spinning out of control.

All of these things regardless of how painful or unfair they may seem, in reality, it is a means to help push you towards doing something about your circumstances or the situations you find yourself within that don’t necessarily vibrate at the same “level” as you do anymore. And if you’re at a point in your life where things aren’t seeming to work out very easily or you’re frustrated with the same ole same ole day-in day-out then obviously nothing is going to change until you decide to make some changes in your life. Like I mentioned before, it could be changing your job, where you live, or even the friends in which you associate with to even changes in your relationships. But it can also be as simple as a change in your perception, outlook and attitude towards life that can make all the difference in the world.

With the advent of Spring merely 2 weeks away, it would appear that a window of opportunity is at our doorstep if we simply are willing to step through into the unknown and take a chance on renewing our lives, ourselves and the way in which we view the world around us. It is our viewpoints, thoughts and ideas that fabricate the world as we know it around us. If we do not like what we see, then it is up to us to individually take control over our circumstances and make some form of forward movement in order to get out of the stagnated “space” that we may have found ourselves or ridding ourselves of whatever influences are not in our best interest. 

So, with the celestial alignments as they are forming are aiding in helping us to reestablish a better foundation for ourselves and to improve our lives if we simply have the courage to embrace change in a positive manner knowing that it will help us ascend above our limitations and put us in a better frame of mind and most likely improve our circumstances. Of course, there’s going to be some hard work to do on our part whether that’s physically cleaning up your space or even moving to a new one, as well as, the mental preparation to transform our way of thinking and view of reality. The weight of winter has stunted our growth but with Spring’s arrival we have the opportunity to grow once again! 

Prepare now and ready yourself so you’ll know which “seeds” (thoughts, ideas, projects) to plant upon Spring’s arrival so that it can produce an abundant harvest transforming your life more towards the fulfillment of your ambitions, hopes and dreams. 

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Be honest, how many times have you looked at yourself; I mean, really looked at yourself and paid attention to the various changes that are occurring daily in which affect your life and the reflection you cast upon the world around you?

How often have you looked within the mirror and saw your reflection distorted or you appeared younger or even considerably aged compared to the day before? When purifying ourselves at such a deep cellular level, we are regenerating ourselves from the inside out preparing our vessel to be able to anchor pure divine energy at highly concentrated and potent levels while physically channeling that love, light and divine will into the world, as well as, into our own lives and those we come in contact with.

When we are filled with anxiety, worry, negative self talk and thoughts, we carry not only our burdens upon our shoulders but we also tend to physically show our stress and insecurities. These energies and thought-forms weigh us down considerably thus also making us appear fatigued, worn down and out right most people can tell that something is either bothering us or we’re sick; when in reality we’re just sick of the bullshit and it does tend to show by our looks, our attitudes and how we react to things or situations regarding others.

And we all should know by now, if we look like crap 9 x’s out of 10 we usually feel like it too. We tend to wear our stress on our faces and how negatively it is affecting us whether we’re consciously aware of it or not. But if we are happy, passionate and look forward to the day with a positive attitude most likely you look younger, feel better and in most cases life is a lot easier to deal with, not to mention physically, mentally and emotionally things improve within your life even if in small ways.

Surely you can notice a pattern if you pay attention to how our thoughts, actions and moods transform our experiences and reality. Then we can more easily identify common triggers that wear us down, make us feel old and sometimes down right awful; not to mention often times bewildered, frustrated and even more confused with what’s occurring with our bodies inside and out.

Like a snake that has shed it’s skin, we are physically raw and sore from all the transmuting that has been taking place on such deep levels within our beingness. As we too have shed more of the layers of our ego in order to expand, grow and become even more clearer channels of divine will.

In this phase, we are super sensitive to the slightest stimuli regardless of it’s source. And often times find ourselves purging physically as well via sudden intolerances to foods and beverages that used to satisfy us but during various transitions they cause severe heartburn, digestive issues and inexplicable ailments as our bodies further purge the toxins and debris from within. Often times there are gall bladder and appendix attacks also that tend to surface during those times.

Back, neck, chest and severe headaches all signal upper body chakras being forced open by the kundalini as more heightened crystalline light energy permeates our beingness. Everything is being brought into a state of quickening. Some days, our physical bodies feel as if they’ve been put through the wringer and we wonder how we’ll make it through the day let alone deal with everything that’s on our To-Do List to take care of our families and responsibilities.

It is also very common to have a lot of transitional flu symptoms, upper respiratory infections, as well as sinus infections during these purgings as our bodies are being acclimated to a heightened awareness of our senses. Sometimes, it is when we are at rest and still that our bodies can do the most acclimating and healing but all too often we’re so busy-that we don’t always take time to meditate, attune to or just simply take time to nurture ourselves so we are often times forced to have some downtime in order to successfully receive the necessarily energetic attunements and healing we need to keep from short circuiting ourselves out.

Just like a newborn baby, as we rebirth ourselves remember that we must nurture and nourish ourselves to continue the positive flow of higher spiritual energies to maintain our pureness after the major purging and rebirthing process. We must treat ourselves with gentleness and take the extra time to pamper ourselves in order to fully benefit from the great purification that is occurring globally and within humanity itself.

Once we become lighter, purer and cleansed by the alchemical fires that help us to ascend and unite all aspects of ourselves into the here and now through the process of integration; then think of it as a chance to start over anew with our lifestyles and diets, as well as, letting go of addictions and bad habits. To fall back into old habits only defeats the purpose and refills our sacred space with toxins that we just spent a long time ridding ourselves of. So becoming super conscious of ourselves in everything that we do in positive and healing ways will not only benefit us but also propel us even further upon the path of enlightenment and ascension.

Now that Summer is officially over, the cooler air has begun to blow our bodies need for additional care to help maintain better balance. With all that we’ve endured over the years trying to take care of others, it is now time to take better care of ourselves so that we may improve our and take better care of our own lives. Our outlook in how we feel and look can be a beneficial tool to help us become more confident and accepting of ourselves.

That’s why it’s important to get up everyday and find ways to make yourself feel beautiful, more vibrant and empowered. Just like the clothes we wear can influence how we feel so too can our moods, our stressors and daily burdens which all can be transformed into a more positive experience via adjusting our thoughts and how we react to situations.

For example if you wear certain colors they can make you feel more powerful and confident; so too is the way you present yourself to the world and if your stressed to the max and all frumpy looking chances are others will not take you seriously and will probably think that you have lost control of your life and are so filled with apprehension and fear that what you say may lead to an over-exaggerated version of what’s really going on.

Whereas if you act cool, calm and collected and present yourself confidently to the world despite the obstacles it will change the way in which you react to those obstacles and most likely, creatively help you devise a solution to overcome those limitations than if you were in an anxiety ridden state of mind trying to deal with the situations.

Not only do we need to become more tolerant of other people’s wrong doings but also our own. Choose from which state of beingness we want to operate in so that we can make the most of our lives and opportunities available to us or continue to be overwhelmed caught in a vicious cycle that seems never-ending.

And finally, by taking better care of ourselves, and taking the time to nourish our bodies in every aspect we can more easily adapt to the changes and our circumstances will not be as difficult to deal with. Not to mention the added benefits of how we look and feel! After all, we’re all worth it! And with the immense amount of karmic clearing we’ve been doing it’s a necessity if we want to remain youthful and young of heart as long as possible. For nothing ages us faster than stress and dwelling on the negatives. So make sure to take plenty of time to balance work with play, as well as, make taking time to nurture yourself a priority in your life.

We all deserve to pamper ourselves and enjoy life to the fullest so what are you waiting for?

Much Love & Many Blessings,

With so many things happening around us on so many levels physically, mentally and emotionally, confusion can easily set in. Sometimes things can become very chaotic, draining and often times even appearing hopeless! But that is only an illusion for if things are out of order in our lives, then it’s up to us to set then straight and clean them up! For if we don’t do it then surely no one else will. With the quickening of time that we’ve all been experiencing there’s bound to be a few areas that are needing our attention or have become unbalanced with all the shifts and transitions that have been occurring with our planet and individually as well.

Now would be an ideal time in which to actively restore balance and vigor within our lives as we begin to slow down a little after the Summer’s rush. As the leaves begin to change, one-by-one, we can begin putting everything within our lives back in order or at least take the time to access the various elements and facets so that we may discern what really is in alignment with our goals and ambitions or what needs to be released in order to move forward into a new space, new energy, new awareness, and better flow of positive abundance into our lives.

With so many planetary transmissions of light energy and codes to assist in awakening our latent DNA, as well as, to help us to ascend into the higher dimensional realms and expand our consciousness. The more disorderly our lives are, the more chaotic it will probably become which is the primary reason to establish and create balance within our homes and every aspect of our lives that we possibly can. It is definitely time to clear our sacred space or for some individuals even establish a new living space. As many are being urged to relocate to other areas that are more within alignment of their new roles and energies as we move forward upon our planetary and personal ascension process and evolutionary process as well.

The kundalini’s activity during these heightened peaks of quickening and activations taking place are also creating a good deal of physical symptoms that are sometimes frightening and inexplicable to say the least. Which is another good reason to actively take ahold of the reigns now and regain control of our lives. The more we are actively moving our bodies the easier it is for things to be processed within us as the alchemical fires continue forging ahead by literally devouring everything within us that is debris, unneeded and not in alignment with our highest good any longer whether it be karmic debris, emotional clutter, out-dated thoughts, feelings or beliefs, etc.

There is so much occurring within the depths of our beingness alchemically. We are transmuting all the poisons within us and our bodies that have accumulated over our various lifetimes and this one as well. Releasing toxic karmic debts and emotional bonds that no longer serve a purpose, as well as toxins within our physical bodies. Transforming ourselves and lives in various ways according to our individual soul’s highest good and whatever is needed for each individual to progress upon their own path of enlightenment and awakening to their divinity. And it is when the kundalini comes against a blockage that is filled with these unnecessary fragments that causes the physical pain we have come to experience over these passing years. Things that needed to be let go of or released emotionally, mentally or physically that we’ve fought against, pushed to the side or tried to ignore created an energetic blockage within the associated chakra in which makes the kundalini’s passage more narrow thus creating physical symptoms and pain as it forces it’s way through our bodies trying to reach it’s zenith.

The more we work through these things that we’ve tried to avoid or have put off till the last minute the easier these transitions will be on us as the lighter energetically we will become. It is often in our resistance to changing things within our lives that creates even more issues to deal with because we become stuck and trapped in a vicious cycle that we may not like but it has become familiar to us and that sometimes is comforting just like a security blanket. Sometimes it’s necessary to step outside the confounds of our comfort zone in order to truly see what all opportunities are available to us; instead of the limiting view we have become accustomed to seeing.

We’ve learned so much information over the past few decades and at times even experienced mass overload! Like sponges absorbing everything we could get our hands onto to read, study or research in an effort to discover more of who we are, where we came from and what exactly is our purpose and destiny in this lifetime. Some may find that during these great shifts in our consciousness that there is some short term memory loss, as well as, older experiences become foreign to us; as if it were another person who experienced them. Much of the world as we know it is changing, so is the way in which we are viewing our world and our experiences. And as such, our collective and individual memory also is evolving and changing as much of the old is dropping away as we soar even higher into our divine origins and purpose.

It’s hard to believe that the New Year is literally right around the corner, so I think that it would make sense to try to have our space and lives in order to start off the New Year on a positive step in the right direction. With the next few months until then, we should be focusing upon balancing ourselves, our lives, our homes and being aware of exactly what we’d like to achieve and manifest in our lives becoming clearer of our intentions and setting some personal goals for ourselves to strive towards. Some individuals may find themselves being called in a different direction with their work or what they want in their lives. What we have been may not necessarily be what we will become in the future as we become more in alignment with our true ability to be a vessel of universal energy and divine will to assist humanity and the earth during this great shift in our planet and awareness.

As more and more individuals awaken to their internal call to be a light-bearer and vessels of unconditional love and healing energy, many of the fore-bearers are being thrown into new roles as teachers to help those who are awakening find understanding within their individual process and path of ascension. Some may feel drawn to expand upon or redefine their skills, go to school for additional certification or to broaden their own horizons embarking upon a new career, as well as, take their work on the road to become more physically interactive with the public one-on-one. There is an endless supply of unlimited potential and resources available to us if we open ourselves up to receiving that abundance by being in alignment with opportunities that present themselves in which to help liberate us and free us from our stagnation and limitations that we perceive within our everyday lives.

To become more in alignment we must transform the chaos in our lives and establish control and order over our affairs and life in all it’s aspects. The disillusionment we’ve been feeling as we’ve been transitioning and integrating into the newer heightened energies may have helped us to reach a breaking point in which we can no longer tolerate our circumstances as they are without making some significant changes. Whether that be in our priorities, focus, intent, attitudes, surroundings or whatever other area of our lives that feels it needs to be spruced up and made anew. Including decluttering our homes, rearranging the furniture, changing our residence, enhance our financial position through changing jobs or enrolling in additional training, giving ourselves a new hair do or even altering our appearance in some way. Now is the time to reach for new ways to express ourselves and make sure that all that surrounds us is a reflection of that beauty.

We can no longer idly set back and procrastinate or shriek off our responsibilities on someone else, it’s time to be accountable for our own actions, responsibilities and actively establishing order and balance within our lives. We can no longer blame others for our circumstances we must accept that all that we have experienced has been a means in which to bring us to this point in time in which we can be in alignment with our purpose and learn how to master ourselves as we ascend above our limitations physically and spiritually integrate more of higher selves into the here and now. We are living alchemy in action as we transmute, transform and rebirth ourselves while letting go of all that has held us confined within the 3D reality of lack and limitation.

As we assist in helping our precious Mother Earth to rebirth and attune humanity to the awakening and ascension, we are also rebirthing ourselves and our conscious awareness of how we perceive the world around us. When we become more aware of the processes at play then understanding their significance helps us to see a grandeur scheme of things and the underlying causes for what is occurring around us. As well as, help us to discern what best course of action to take that will be in alignment with our needs, desires, goals and purpose. Which is hard to figure out when our space, emotions and minds are filled with clutter and unnecessary debris that no longer serves a purpose and must be released in order to allow room for more positive opportunities to present themselves to us as we further progress upon our individual paths.

Now is a time of weighing our pros and cons of the things within our lives that are out of balance. Discerning what is of value and what no longer helps us or has become a hindrance or created pain within our lives, as well as, what things we would like to see manifest within our lives so that we can focus upon the positive things we’d like to see and make a conscious effort towards actively creating those very things. We have to assess what is needed to bring about those changes, develop a little game plan for ourselves in which to effectively make it a reality. And the most important step is actively participating daily towards accomplishing those goals. We can no longer walk the path that has been walked before us. as we have been led to do in the past. We must pave our own road, for no one else can do it for us any longer. For it is up to us to design it and co-create the reality and picture we wish to see painted before us. It is time to become masters at creating the life of our dreams.

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Rising Above The Clutter

   Posted by: admin   in Household Rituals & Routines

This year has seemingly been whizzing right by us at warp speed! Seems like as soon as we try to stick to a routine or finish things we’ve started previously, we keep getting side-winded along the way due to unforeseen circumstances and a whole myriad of other things that have been bombarding us on every level of our beingness & lives.

There has definitely been some powerful planetary forces and energies at play stirring up things forcing them to the surface in order for us to deal with. Often times, I find it’s the unpleasant stuff that we’ve pushed deep within us trying to ignore or deal with including some things we may not have been consciously aware of that we were holding onto emotionally. Lots of root issues, support system’s becoming unstable or unreliable and financial hardships as the majority of individuals are struggling to merely survive in the present state of the economy.

Chaos seeming to ensue in various facets of our lives. Sometimes the harder we try to control things the more difficult they become. Usually, we’ll get the point knowing that we are supposed to be “going with the flow” rather than trying to fight the current or hang onto the shores fearfully. This in itself can often times become an overwhelming challenge creating even more trepidation and fear. As a result, we tend to go through phases in which everything becomes chaotic and even at times completely falls apart.

So where do we go from here? We can take advantage of the challenges before us and look at ways in which we can learn from them, as well as, utilize them to work through our problems and heal on many levels and aspects of our lives (physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually). We all go through various alchemical stages in our lives throughout various periods of time and individual cycles. When things have begun breaking down that is the best time to release the things within your life that are not bearing fruit or are simply taking up space, time and depleting your precious energy and life force.

All too often, I find that our homes quickly become a reflection of the state of our inner selves displayed before us in the clutter and endless list of To Do’s needing to be done. So as we find these areas that are needing our attention to deal with them we can also take the time to honor our feelings, release them and as a result ultimately heal that wound during the process of us decluttering, organizing and cleaning up our lives and living space.

This same approach applies to every area and aspect of your life. Each room holds an overall “theme” or “energy” that corresponds with an area of our life whether it’s relationships, money, health, etc. these areas that need to be purged and cleansed represent something that needs to be purged, cleansed and purified from within you as well. The first step is by decluttering, cleaning and organizing your living space. Thereby that action in itself will help to release those things that have been weighing you down, demanding your attention while robbing you of your energy and simply overwhelming you creating tons of frustration and chaos.

And as many of you know, this truly can become a vicious cycle and test of wills trying to remain balanced, free of clutter, organized and utilizing our energy efficiently to just get through the day. So many of us have been simply ready to pull our hair out from lack of knowing what to do, where to start and often times even understanding where it all went wrong! Sometimes we may even feel alone in our burdens but in reality it’s a challenge the mass majority of people, especially women, have to try to juggle along with taking care of our families, keeping everyone else on track, do the shopping and a zillion other things that us “Mom’s” have to contend with each and every day.

So where do we get started? There’s varying opinions on the answer to this question. FlyLady suggests the kitchen sink; other experts suggest just picking an area and begin tackling the areas that draw your attention to them as you enter the room. While still others, suggest writing an extensive list of tasks needing done and breaking them down into small manageable projects. Truly there’s an endless supply of where and how to get started but the most essential element is taking action and physically doing something; instead of mulling over all that needs to be done.

In lieu of that information, it becomes apparent to me that we need to devise a Plan of Action for ourselves that best suits our individual needs. Of course, this is where it gets somewhat confusing because everyone has a different “idea” of what a “need” entails. So looking at things from that perspective the first question you need to ask yourself is “What are my priorities?”. What things are needed to be done in order for your family to survive? The logical answer would be food, love and less stress. So how do we incorporate those things into our lives in healthy doses that can help to balance our own individual lifestyle and maintain our family at the same time?

This would include our shopping, menu planning, regular physical activity, housecleaning, running errands, accommodating others within the family, personal time, quality family time and ton of other things that we feel obligated to do whether we have the energy to do them or not. Many of us had parents who turned chores into punishment and tried to force us to be meticulous to a fault in our perfectionism and it was these very attitudes and values that were impressed upon us that later have proven to be very challenging and often times set us up to be “failures” as adults when trying to maintain our own home and affairs.

That in itself is a major energy zapper when we feel that we cannot live up to the expectations set forth by our parents as to what our homes should look like, how we should manage our time and often times even dictate what our priorities should be whether their in alignment with our lives or not there’s always a lot of self-worth issues to address when being raised in this type of environment. We’ve been taught that if we can’t do something right or even all at once then don’t start what you can’t finish. In our busy world today, things are not like they were 25+ years ago when life itself wasn’t as busy nor were there as many distractions to contend with daily either.

Our lives no longer model the 1950′s woman working diligently on our house while the family is at school and work then giving every ounce of our energy to being Super Mom or Wonder Woman participating in every little event going on and trying to take care of everyone we know. In today’s world sometimes it’s hard enough to just simply take care of yourself let alone challenging trying to take care of a family as well. It’s not that we don’t aspire to be the “Do-it-all” but often times we may not have a lot of time at our disposal in order to get all the detailed cleaning done so we have to adapt a plan that works around our priorities and our personal daily needs that best maximize our efficiency, improve our time management skills and meet the needs of our family as well.

Life is filled with plenty of To-Do’s some of which may or may never get done but one thing is for certain and that is only we can make the best of a situation if we so choose or we can make the worst of it by being bitter at what we are expected to do, what responsibilities we may have and even often times belittling ourselves for not being able to handle it all by ourselves. The list goes on and on with all the things we say and do to ourselves as a result of the state of our homes, our bodies and ultimately our lives. We’ve all been there where it seems the harder we strive to be perfect the more the world around us tries to prove to us we are far from it! But those are the pre-conditioned thinking patterns surfacing reminding us of all we do wrong determined by the expectations of our parents and the environments we grew up in.

These negative self criticism and thoughts tend to navigate our lives around in circles that only perpetuate the problems we are seeking to solve most often but are afraid to make ripples or waves due to the fear of what that change may bring about. So we set in silence pondering on how to fix the things that have gone awry in our lives and with it comes the ultimate question of what do we truly want out of life? What dreams, goals and ambitions do you have? Are you actively taking any steps towards achieving them or merely wishing them to simply manifest in your life by some mysterious force?

The only way that will occur is through actively taking action to manifest what you are wanting to experience within your life. When things are stagnated, stuck and undealt with it creates chaotic energy that builds until it becomes an explosive volatile situation in which things are forced to the surface in which to deal with much like volcanic eruptions, each time it erupts it releases pressure and helps to alleviate the stress and pain of the shifting earth and yet sometimes it can lay dormant within itself containing all that needs to be purged and released for years before finally exploding and ridding itself of what no longer serves a purpose much life we humans do emotionally.

And if you have really caught a glimpse at all your clutter and the state of your house, there are times in which it simply looks like it’s about to erupt from all the mounds of clutter we have accumulated over the years or like a whirlwind has come through turning everything into chaos within it’s path from one end of the house to the other. Especially the latter if you have children within the home or roommates who have a “carefree lifestyle”. Many of us were brought up hoarding things to save them for a rainy day when we or someone else might be able to use them regardless of whatever it was, there’s always been an over abundance of hoarding going on whether it’s hanging onto old clothes, paperwork, collectibles or other miscellaneous.

If we could find something at a good deal it was always considered wiser to buy it just encase you may need it in the future, as well as, holding onto everything someone gives you regardless of whether or not you’ll use it many of us have been blessed with lots of family and friends who think of us every time they have something to get rid of or have inherited a bunch of things simply because the family didn’t really want to deal with it or have to clean it themselves. Of course, probably at those times and ages we were all too happy to take on more stuff simply because we didn’t want to be rude, hurt someone’s feelings or we were raised to believe that as long as you had plenty of possessions it would appear that you were well to do regardless of how much money you really did have. A poor person could easily find things to make her home and wardrobe look as if she spent a ton of money on it and in reality it was just some pocket change.

And most likely, all of those have happened to us at some point or another in our never ending plight to get ourselves organized, stick to a plausible routine and have the luxury to enjoy our lives rather than be overwhelmed by all the responsibilities and things we have to do. And usually every step of the way wondering where we’re gong to get the energy to get it all done. Our clutter, whether it’s internal or external has also done wonders at robbing our energy like parasites sucking the life right out of us. It distracts us, depresses us, taunts us and makes us feel like we’re the world’s worst housekeeper. But in reality, that’s just our negative self talk trying to tear us down even further over our shortcomings and this is where we must regain our power back and learn how to focus our time, energy and mind towards positive thinking and intentions.

I know there have been a few times when my house was what I thought could be it’s absolute worst condition then turn on the hoarding TV show and am absolutely astounded and amazed what kind of conditions these people are living in and quickly come back to my senses realizing what mess I have to clean is nothing in comparison to what these people have going on. Most usually within a few minutes of watching that I end up getting motivated to get busy doing something productive and find that often times I spend more time complaining of what I need to get done than actually taking the few minutes it takes to actively get the task done. We’ve all been there and done that I’m sure a few times as well.

This is where learning how to manage your time more efficiently comes into play and learning the value of time and how much time it takes to do most tasks. There are some things that we tend to put off thinking it will take forever to finish to only dig in to find out later it only took a few minutes to complete. At which point we’re usually kicking ourselves for having put it off for so long.

And this is also where our upbringing plays a pivotal role in how we perceive tasks and the amount of time required to get them done. In most instances, if we can’t do everything at one time then we tend to procrastinate until it becomes such a disaster waiting to happen before we actively put forth any effort to get it done. At this point, we may end up frantically trying to tackle everything needing done in an area or throughout the house in the shortest amount of time possible by cramming as many tasks into the day as you can often times cleaning 18 – 24 hrs. or longer nonstop just to get things caught back up only to wear ourself out completely and have to recuperate for a few days. Most usually the house gets drug back out, messed up and dirtied again while you were trying to catch up from the cruel punishment you gave yourself for allowing the house to get into that condition to begin with which ultimately leads to more episodes of repetitive cycles in desperation and depleted energy levels, as well as, emotionally and mentally beating yourself up.

We have to stop being so hard on ourselves because we can’t live up to the expectations set forth by our parents, others or ourselves. Sometimes the reality is that they are much higher than we can accommodate at all times as life is always in a state of fluctuation, transformation and change. So we have to adapt to those changes without losing our sanity in the process and for the majority of us, I think that is where we are most challenged where our ideals do not always match those of our upbringing and parents’ expectations. We were trained to be perfectionists at all cost, to be-it-all and do-it-all without fail and to carry as many burdens as possible to prove how strong we really are to name a few. Sometimes truly it is a battle of our minds and sanity trying to get through the self worth issues that stem from our inability to maintain the status quo and expectations our parents, in-laws or society expected us to.

The way to rise above the clutter and triumph over ongoing battles of balancing all the various aspects in our lives is through actively taking action and regain control over your home and life. This simply can be as simple to get started as spending a few minutes each day working on decluttering or organizing an area of your home that’s really vying for your attention or where you feel most drawn to begin reclaiming your space. Make a To-List for each room and break it down into small steps that you can manage easily. As you clean up your living space it also helps to clean up your life and restore your control and balance. Which is all apart of the process of learning how to balance your life.

Now that Autumn is here, it’s a great time to focus on removing the clutter, chaos and frustration from you life one day and room at a time. As you clean, organize and prioritize your life balance will be established and you will find much more time to enjoy the things you’d like to be doing but weren’t able to because there was too much other stuff dragging you down, vying for your attention, making you feel overwhelmed or side-tracking you from your aspirations and achieving your goals. It’s not going to happen overnight but small persistent steps towards improving yourself, your life, your home, your circumstances will be well worth the effort, time and energy for this type of energy is purifying, cleansing, healing and rejuvenating to all aspects and levels of our lives.

I wish you luck rising above the clutter and remaining above the fray in life. Taking action even the smallest act sets the ball rolling to validate the fact you want to improve the energy that is flowing within your life; as a result the more you participate actively in achieving your personal goals for your home, family, life and self the quicker you will manifest more positive and beneficial influences and elements into your life to assist you in positive and healing ways.

Much Love & Many Blessings,

Hello, Welcome and Personal 2013 Update

   Posted by: admin   in Introduction

Many Blessings for those who find themselves here;) My name is Leslie Fulger aka Akia Winterhawk. I am a Spiritual Teacher, Healer, Counselor and Earth Divinationist. I am also a Teacher of Tarot, HoopDance, Self Awareness & Chakra Cleansing. I am an Ordained Minister of Earth-Based Religions, I also have an Associate of Divinity in Theology; as well as, a recognized Metis.

I have actively been involved in the Spiritual Community online for over 10 yrs. and a practitioner of the Arts for over 20 yrs. I study ancient civilizations, cultures, religions & belief systems and every facet thereof. I am a natural spell writer, ceremonial ritualist and walk a shamanistic path. I have been trained in KoLaimNi & Kundalini Reiki healing modalities and taught much of what I know from my Tribal Grandmother Mechi Garza.

I help assist others upon their path of ascension and awakening, as well as, help them to balance their energies during the throws of kundalini. I specialize in helping others with self awareness and discovering their true abilities and path. I help individuals to maintain a positive attitude and thoughts to bring about positive actions in order to manifest positive results in their life in order to overcome their challenges and obstacles.

I’ve had a few different websites and written a lot of articles over the past 13 yrs. online but over the years, due to unforeseen circumstances, I no longer own  those websites (EarthsHealingEmbrace, TheDragonflyOracle, CrystalTempleofEnlightenment, ExpandingSelfAwareness, AkiaWinterhawk and a few other small websites that weren’t launched yet). And the articles are scantly scattered throughout the wonderful web but not as much as they used to be since I’ve not been actively doing much writing over the last few years. So, now that I’m ready and able to get back into the “groove of things” after several major life changes and transformations within my own personal journey, the only website I still own is this one which is my formal name currently although I still write underneath the name Akia Winterhawk.

At one time, I had a great deal of articles I had written pertaining to awakening, rebirth, kundalini, tarot, life lessons, enhancing your intuition, and various other expanding self awareness and spiritually-aspected information. I no longer have access to the majority of those articles but that’s okay because it’s time for some fresh ones anyway. I spent countless hours working on projects, graphics, presentations, and numerous other tools in which to enhance people’s lives and all that information too, I’m afraid is now only within my memory as I no longer have access to any of those things either after my hard drive crashed and wiped out all my files and information last year.

So I pretty much gave it up for lint for awhile but those too I’m sure needs reiterated and given a fresh new approach or even transformed themselves into more useful ways; only time will tell of course. But in the meantime, while I get back into the flow of things, I’m just going to share whatever comes to mind and take it from there. There’s so much that has occurred  since I really was actively involved online within the spiritual groups and communities that either I owned, co-managed or actively participated in. I was comfortable and familiar with people, events and whatnot going on all over the world relative to what was going on within those communities and people in general. But for the past 7 years, I had a lot more one-on-one work that occurred offline with people in some really repressed areas.

It used to be easy to juggle both online and offline but with all the changes I’ve gone through, my websites have gone through and with all the events that have taken place, simply put, I’m going to have to pretty much start all over online. I used to have a pretty decent following and a popular newsletter back in 2004-05 and even went as far as publishing my very own ebook entitled Expanding Self Awareness. But shortly thereafter the physical aspects of life demanded my attention and it’s been hit and miss since then trying to reestablish myself. I also can see some greater underlying reasons and meaning to all these topsy-turvy changes that I’ve undergone but also have arrived at the point of knowing that it’s time for a new start.

That obviously all the “information” and “planning” I did to help others served well to help me expand my own awareness in so many levels and ways. Not to mention, that it helped me to push forward and make some major life decisions, take some chances and leaps of faith to re-position myself to be more in alignment with where I wanted to be physically speaking within my life. And sometimes even the best intentions come with challenges and do not necessarily always go according to plan as such has been the case.

So needless to say I’m overflowing with tons of words writing articles by themselves within my head and need to free up some space. As a result, I need to start letting it flow outwardly onto the pages of this blog in hopes that it will be of benefit to others in positive and healing ways. I still have not made up my mind about trying to refurbish my projects and past stuff that I had spent years working on or just completely starting over from scratch providing a different approach than previously implemented throughout my various websites, groups, etc. Which most likely, the latter will be the case as Spring’s Renewal resonates with starting things anew, creatively seeking new approaches and opportunities, as well as, renewing your image, self and aspirations for the future.

In essence, time to put my nose to the grindstone or better yet, my fingers to the keyboard and get some of these articles I’ve been working on within my mind down in print so that I can make some forward movement and progress with reestablishing myself online. After having finally being able to relocate, to the state I’ve longed to live my entire life that had a lot of fond memories for me growing up; came to pass last year.

Upon relocating, I didn’t expect to find waiting for me physical work to be doing helping others who were confused, lost and needed some positive encouragement and direction within their lives. So regardless of whether I was able to be in that position or not to help, ‘you do whatever is necessary at the given moment and usually whatever is  needed will manifest itself in order to help you do whatever “work” you are called to do when it’s time for you to “apply your skills, knowledge and experience” to whatever the situation may be.’ Truly we are blessed!

There’s so much beauty and inspiration around me that speaks such a wealth of knowledge that I’d like to share through my articles and blogposts for knowledge is nothing unless it is shared. Thanks for visiting my site, I hope that you come back and visit often and I look forward to any comments and suggestions for featured articles and topics you’d like to see discussed.

Much Love & Many Blessings,
