Angel Message – You Are Magic

It was the day after the unusual Dragonfly encounter that I decided to draw a card from my postcards from spirit deck. The signs were strong throughout the week and whether it was my initial intuition about Moms spirit ready to leave, or the unusual amount of feathers that crossed my path, or the dragonfly sitting on my head, all gently painted towards Mom’s end of her journey.

She was still fighting and declining rapidly. It was hard to believe that just a week ago I talked to her almost as if normal. Neither one of us would know that this was the last normal conversation we would have. Her condition declined almost overnight, and it was hard to see her so out of it, so weak, just mumbling and barely coherent.

The first thing I noticed on the card was the symbol of the dragonfly and the words “You Are Magic” underneath it. No ordinary moments right, but it was the explanation of the card that hit home even more and confirmed my feelings once more.

Dearest You,

There are times when loss is a part of life. Sometimes the loss is welcome, when you leave a situation not in alignment with your highest good. Sometimes the loss is sudden and painful, like when a loved one crosses over to our dimension. Regardless of the nature of your loss and your control over it, your experience is asking to be acknowledged. Tears are necessary, as is grief. When you repress the natural expression of loss and try to move on too quickly, the unprocessed pain haunts you in destructive ways. We don’t want that for you! Instead let your heart break open wide. Feel the loss and integrate it. See the beauty that was, the lessons learned, and know that as you let go of what has passed, evermore of you remains. It gets better, I promise. Your heart expands with more compassion for the world than ever before. Love heals all.

We are loving you, sending you love, always and forever….

Millions of Years

Photo taken from Pinterest

While spending time in nature recently, a beautiful dragonfly flew into my hair. I could feel her touch on the top of my head, and immediately I knew this wasn’t an ordinary moment. For a moment she just sat there, and so did I….

I saw her fly towards me, but never in a million years did I imagine she would land on my head. What an unusual encounter I thought, and there had to be a valid message she was delivering me. Why else would she get my attention in such a unique way?

Did you know that dragonflies have flown the earth for 300 million years? Dragonflies symbolize our ability to overcome times of hardship. They remind us to take time to reconnect with our strength, courage and happiness.

I’d say there couldn’t have been a more powerful and timely reminder. No ordinary moments….❤️

5D Consciousness

Maybe life continues to spin at dizzying speeds for you. It sure does for me and I’m holding on tight. The past two years have been filled with lessons, not always pleasant, and sometimes I have wondered, will it ever end. In truth, I know better, and in truth I know we will never be done learning and experiencing new lessons. Life is one big adventure with constant ups and downs, and new experiences to be processed. What is shifting, is how am dealing with these moments and it has changed over the years, allowing me to look back and see the progress.

I have always been pretty calm, not resisting change too much. I think there wasn’t really a need for much surrender as I was always there for the most part. What is new is my viewpoint and welcoming these experiences to the best of my ability. Just like you, I can’t say that I have liked them all, but I have always looked for the meaning and the purpose of any given situation. I feel that I am much more aware today, and I guess in reality we will always feel this way, because we really don’t know any different until we grow again and can reflect back at a later time. Have you ever heard of 5D Consciousness? Entering a higher awareness? Here is what is suppose to happen when you shift into this state.

  1. You see synchronicities such as repetitive numbers, signs, and patterns that get your attention.
  2. You’re re-evaluating EVERYTHING in your life, such as career, relationships, values, and even your sense of self.
  3. You’re seeking a deeper meaning and purpose in your life. Surface level pleasures and stimulation is no longer enough.
  4. You have a new found interest or obsession with spirituality. You’re reading books, blogs, and staying up late watching videos all about spirituality or metaphysics.
  5. You’re going through a sometimes confusing, sometimes scary and yet highly EXCITING personal transformation, and you KNOW intuitively that good things are coming!

I know that many of you will relate to some of these points and I would love to hear your opinion and personal experiences with this. Perhaps this makes sense now and you have felt like this for awhile, not knowing what it was or what to call it. I can’t be alone out here 😉

Spirit message

I like to consult in the cards sometimes and never received a wrong message to this day. Whether it’s oracle cards, tarot, Angel, or spirit messages, I have always found validation in what the universe was trying to tell me.

Why pull the cards you wonder? I know that some people in the past have been afraid and frightened of the cards. Afraid to pull a message that might shatter the illusion we sometimes build around us. Better not knowing was a better idea than to disturb the balance and raising thoughts of worries. I would say it depends on how you feel about the cards, and if you are like me, believing that there are no bad messages and nothing to worry about, you will be quite alright. I remember once drawing the death card in my tarot deck and yes initially my heart might have skipped a beat. Soon I was able to understand that this card is not death in the physical form but more like transformation and letting the pieces of ourselves die that no longer serve us. A much better viewpoint wouldn’t you say? Sometimes pulling a card is to steer you into the right direction, to offer viewpoints and suggestions you may have not considered yet. Sometimes it is reconfirmation of what you already now and you just need that little extra push trusting your gut instincts.

Today I pulled a card for all of us. It comes from my postcards from spirit deck by Colette Baron Reid, and I am here to share it with you. Maybe somebody needs to hear this right now and I hope it can provide that little nudge.

Dearest You,

There are times you get lost but refuse to see your part in things. Happens to everyone. Something feels familiar but sort of off. If you’re feeling confused, it’s best to throw away that map you’re using, which only lets you navigate based on your past experiences. That isn’t what you need right now. Instead, take a deep breath and open to the truth. A desire to stay in denial means that part of you doesn’t want to be responsible for the pattern that’s shown up in your life. Yes, this is the right Time to wake up and start again. By the way, you will always get another chance, you have unlimited chances to start again!

We love you so much. We really do. Be gentle with yourself. Coming out of denial it’s like being temporarily blinded by super bright lights, allow your eyes to adjust. Carry-on, special one. A beautiful life awaits. Loving you so, so much…

A message from the Lions gate portal

The Lions gate portal reached it’s full aperture on the 8th of this month and will be completely closed today, the 12th of August. I came across this cool little chart, listing our individual mantra based on our zodiac sign and the day we were born. These are the energies for August and what propels us into the coming months. I had to share the great news and I know everybody has been ready to catch a break and have positive change enter their life’s.Take a look for yourself and take the blessings in what is yours to receive and celebrate. Write your mantra down to activate these energies and consider it done.

Here is my personal message from the Lions gate and I am ready…

I am blessed, balanced and awakened. ❤️🦋

The Lions Gate Portal

I am a firm believer that we stumble upon information and signs on purpose and nothing is coincidence. Miraculously information appears when we are meant to receive certain messages. And so it was when I visited Bernice‘s blog and came across some information about the lion gate portal. I was so intrigued, I even went as far as to steal this graphic from her, (slightly ashamed, without even asking permission first – yikes) because there is no better picture that could do a post like this justice, and she knew it. She has excellent taste and is a wise and beautiful soul. If you have never read her powerful words, please be sure to stop by and pay her a visit.

Needless to say I felt compelled to research the information some more, for myself as well as for you. Much has been going on with the July full moon eclipse as well as the mars retrograde. Have you been holding on to your sanity? I hope so. Now what, I initially thought as I first saw the post, what’s the deal with this lion gate portal and what do I need to know?

The lion gate is a very special time in the sacred year. It is the moment when a new cycle of time creation begins, and you are able to end and initiate time lines or time cycles. It is a quest to live your best life, merging all of your experiences from all of your life’s, into the powerful and ever present NOW moment. The sacred year begins on the 26th of July, and is preceded by the celebratory “Day out of time” on the 25th of July. The lions gate portal reaches its full aperture on the 8th of August under the constellation of Leo. Thereafter it begins to close and is completed by the 12th of August.

It is said that we are standing on the cusp of great change. Haven’t we all felt this? You could say that it’s been so for many years and rightfully so, but at this moment, and this time of the lions gate portal in 2019, you are truly entering into an accelerated time of transformation that will take you into 2020 and that will culminate in 2021.

The lions gate portal is guarded by two of the royal sirian lions who are known as “The lions of yesterday and tomorrow”. They are gatekeepers that ensure that only those who are grounded in the present moment and conscious of their path are able to transit through the portal and create another cycle of life in a conscious way. Are we ready to cast our intentions?

2019 to 2020 will be known as times of great potential and power. It will also be not an easy time as the chaos and storms around us continue to fuel the fires of transformation and change. Don’t resist and don’t forget to remember who you are in the process of it all. Never forget how blessed you are to hold this awareness and consciousness, while so many live in confusion and struggle with only the fearful ego to guide them. Hold on to your inner peace and remember that everything you are experiencing now is preparing you for your ultimate soul plan and who you truly are. Stay grounded and know that peace, safety, love and abundance is the ultimate outcome you are hanging on for. Focus simply on your passion and what you want to create and experience on earth as a divine blessing.

It will also be a time when you need to care for your body. It is the sacred temple of your soul, and it will take awhile for the body to adjust to the higher frequencies. You may feel exhausted. Surrender and relax. Stay alert to the signs and be gentle with yourself.

Be awake, be aware, be empowered.

All you need to do is simply make the choice and focus the intention as you create the dream.

Posted in Anxiety, Empath, Spirituality

Qawag

You already know how hard it can be to be an empath. You already know that it can be a blessing and a curse. It can bring along great comfort and a feeling of helping others, it may give you a sense of belonging and contributing, but it can also bring anxiety and disturb your inner peace. There is no running from it and you can’t just turn it off. You hear the unspoken and you pick up on the energies around you. Sometimes I’m sure you wished not to know because there lies a comfort in the bliss of less information. Not knowing allows your world to be ok, undisturbed by worries and the actions that often have to follow. It is a delicate balance, a balance that if wanting to be achieved calls for ways to protect yourself from the negative aspects. There is much to be learned about yourself, such as which are your emotions, and which belong to others. Once determined allows you to carry great compassion, to see and guide, but to also protect yourself. You will find that there is not a one fits all process and each situation and person will be different, so try to stay flexible and adjust. Know not only the burdens of this ability, but also recognize the gift you’ve been bestowed on.

The shamanic Quechuan word for empath is “Qawaq” which means “one who sees” living energy. The Incas believe that people born with the ability to experience the energy of others have a great blessing as they are able to connect to their souls and the spirit of existence much more easily than others.

Seize your blessings. ❤️

Strangely familiar

img_0715

I know the subject I am going to write about is a little bit “out there” and it may pass people as random gibberish. But it’s nothing unusual for me since I have long challenged the status quo, and long stopped competing for the most popular vote. I have long dared to be myself without compromising my beliefs to fit in, I just say it how it is, and a major place to express such views has been here, on my blog. I do have to say that WordPress has been a great platform, and all of you have been amazing, allowing me to share such thoughts in written and picture form without fear of judgement. You have shown me your patience and together we explored subjects that are not always easy to be addressed. Thank you for never making me feel weird, but embracing my uniqueness. You truly are the best…

Just recently I wrote a post about Spirituality and Buddhism. I expressed my thoughts about our individual journey for acceptance, and finding something that gives us the feeling that there is more to life that meets the eye. Many of you commented and felt compelled to share your views about your own journey. I really appreciated it and I think a lot of it depends on your code of life, what your views entail, about your values and principles, and your general outlook on life. Whether you usually positive about the things that happen in your life, even the bad ones, (especially the bad ones) or do you feel that challenges quickly get you down, leaving you feeling defeated?

Today I want touch on another great subject that’s been in my mind and talk about past lives. Have you ever experienced something that seems strangely familiar? Something that feels like you have done before, even though you know it’s your first experience…in this lifetime. Yet there is a familiarity, a knowing, a lesson that was already learned at a different time. How do you explain it beyond the Deja Vue? Is it coincidence?Which brings me to the question of whether you believe in past lives?

For me one of those experiences links back to the Native American wisdom and such way of life. From little on I was playing cowboys and Indians with Mom. I was always the Indian and Mom spent her fair share tied to the chair which was my totem pole. Sure…lots of kids do, right? At Halloween events and functions, my costume would often be that of an Indian chief. Still not all that strange. As an adult I was always drawn to spotted horses and thought that they were the most magnificent of them all. There was a love and deep emotion for those beautiful creatures without apparent reason, unable to explain, it just was. I am an animal lover, so what does it have to do with native Americans. Today I drive a Mustang and never thought anything of it until the other day as it was pointed out to me. Maybe my mustang used to have four legs once upon a time and happened to be spotted.

Going through life I would learn lessons in line with Native American wisdom. Of course I ever knew, and it was never immediately obvious, I just stumble across the information on the web or else at a later time, and somehow these pieces always magnificently fell into my lap, as if explaining, justifying my experiences. Today I would tell you that there are no ordinary moments and those coincidences are actually synchronicities from the universe guiding you along.

It was those lessons that spoke to me and made the utmost sense. They simply fit and I relate to this culture a great deal. For instance I relate to the land, our wilderness as a sacred space. I don’t get involved in competitions as far as life is concerned and some find it hard to believe that I want everyone to win. There is a oneness, a winning in numbers that thrives me more than individual success. I believe in simplicity, minimalism, to serve, respect, and live without fear. I believe in Mother Earth, world peace and showing kindness to all. Listening to Native American music gives me chills and stirs something deep within that leaves me emotional but also deeply at peace.

For a birthday a few years back, I received the present of a Native American headdress. I can’t explain how meaningful this piece is to me, and it is a sacred object that I respect a great deal. Although in Native American history and customs it would be very disrespectful for a woman to wear such a headdress. These were for the men and warriors only and were nowhere to be found near a woman. Disrespect for a culture I believe in so deeply would be the last thing on my agenda and I mean no harm or disregard. To me it is a symbol of great strength and honor. It is a reminder of becoming a warrior myself and all the fights I had to fight along the way to arrive here. It is symbolic and powerful, it brings me motivation and strengths and from time to time I wear it and let the magic of it infuse my body, because there will always be some sort of fight that needs to be fought.

To sum it all up where I am going with this, and not believing in coincidences and ordinary moments, I can’t help but wonder. There are too many familiarities. Maybe just maybe all of my love for Native American history and wisdom, why I love mustangs both the animal and the car, the profound meaning of the headdress, the respect for the land and the deep emotions that tie me to those roots, maybe just maybe these are the remnants from a prior life. Maybe a distant memory as my soul relives some of those teachings. Maybe those are the memory of a past life my soul has experienced, maybe the life as Indian chief.

Healers Hand

Recently I found a little treasure at a visitor center during a hike. There was a variety of stones like this one, all in the shape of an arrow head with varied motives on them. I was torn as many appealed, but I kept coming back to this one without being able to explain what attracted me to it. I felt nudged to choose this design and so I did.

Later at home I did a little research on Native American symbols and learned that the symbol was called the healers hand. It is also known as the shamans hand, and is an ancient symbol of healing and protection. The image consists of a hand with the spiral palm and it is believed to have come from the Native Americans solar hieroglyphs that have been found in a number of places in the south western part of the United States.

The spiral is a universally accepted symbol of eternity and in some traditions, it also symbolizes the deity or the spirit. When the solar spiral is used to make the shape of a hand, the resulting figure is believed to be infused with therapeutic energy. Therefore, the healer’s hand is considered to be a representative of the curative powers of a shaman.

In the modern times, the healer’s hand has come to be associated with new age spiritual healing practices such as Reiki. Reiki involves healing people at physical, emotional and spiritual levels by manipulating and guiding life force energy through symbols. These symbols are created by the Reiki practitioner by moving his/her hands over the clients body in specified patterns. The healers hand is seen as a symbol of a Reiki healers energy emitting hand, and so on, it is also referred to as the Reiki hand.

Imagine my surprise, given that I just recently completed a Reiki course, becoming a Reiki Master myself. It was as if this information was suppose to come my way. Given that I relate and love Native American traditions, and this symbol entering my life at this particular time, I’d say again that there are no ordinary moments.

Strawberry Full Moon

Picture taken from google

Last night I got to attend my second full moon drumming circle. It’s a beautiful gathering of people, that come together to celebrate the full moon and let go of any feelings and energy that no longer has room in their life. It’s a time to let go and ground that energy back to Mother Earth.

The drumming starts with the heartbeat, a sound we first heard in the womb. A sound that connects us back to Mother Earth. As you relax into your breath, your body becomes lighter and lighter. You can feel the energy moving everywhere as it fills itself with peace and tranquility. By giving yourself permission to take the time to experience these very moments, your heart is full of gratitude, and by now you are fully relaxed. The daily hustle and bustle noise quiets down, and soon all that is left behind are the sounds of nature and the chirping birds. You hear crystal clear, almost as if you have never heard it with such clarity and purpose before.

Through it all, the “heartbeat” continues as you feel the vibrations from the drum in every nook and cranny of your body. It is powerful and healing at the same time.

It is definitely a neat experience to attend a drumming circle if you have the chance. Your experience will be empowering, while leaving you feeling good about what you no longer want to manifest. But either way, you can still do your own full moon celebration and give back what no longer serves you. Have you ever thought about what those things would be?
