Life After Religion

Over the past two years, the majority of people who have contacted me for mentoring or taken my classes have either left, or are in the process of leaving religion.

Many empaths and highly sensitive people find religious environments debilitating to their sensitivities because it is often spiritual bypass2preached that emotions are “wicked,” and unreliable. Many religions ignore emotions at best, or demonize their purpose and function.

(So why do we have them, then? Small malfunction on God’s part, I suppose?!)

Although Jesus’s message was all about the heart (and he was the ultimate empath), many churches value the mind, “right practice,” and “right doctrine” over personal experience, and prioritize doctrine above individuals. Spiritual bypassing is rampant, congregants bury their emotions in duty in an attempt to “die to themselves” (rather than nurture and expand “the well-spring of life”  — which is THE HEART – Psalm 4:23), and in the end, they’re left feeling spiritually empty and exhausted. They kill their passion, lose heart, and call it moral fiber.

Being ardently committed and passionate about doctrine or a “plan of salvation” is not the same as spiritual growth and expansion, and for empaths, this kind of “mind over emotion” environment is deadly.

Because I have SO MANY empaths contact me who are in this transition period out of religion, I thought I’d share some common themes I’ve noticed, things to be aware of, and resources that may help the process.

Themes I’ve noticed:

*Most people who outgrow religion feel they have nowhere to go. They either carry a chip on their shoulder about religion and turnemotional bypass

off all aspects of spirituality out of (understandable) anger, OR float around aimlessly with no sense of connection to others and no clear moral compass.

*For those who come from a strong Christian background this is especially true, as most Christians have a deep sense of community/family, and when you leave, no one knows quite what to do with you. It’s not that they’ve stopped loving you or no longer care, they just don’t know how to relate to you anymore. And leaving the religion feels like you’re leaving THEM. And in a sense, you are.

*Many who leave religion often go through a pendulum swing, trading a life of duty/service/rules, to a maelstrom of drugs, sex, and partying. This swing typically causes them to eventually go back to religion and shut down their hearts even further, because they never learned to trust themselves. They never learned moderation. They never figured out who they are OR resurrected their hearts. They simply tried to numb the pain by releasing all their suppression in one fell swoop. And because they made a mess of things, they feel even further convinced that they “need” religion to babysit them, because they’re convinced they are sinful to the core. In my experience (with the people I’ve worked with), this is the most debilitating conclusion one could come to.

Having a system that babysits and monitors your behavior might be good when you’re spiritually young and immature, but Spiritual abuseyou are meant to eventually grow-up. A parent wouldn’t keep their kid in a play pin for the rest of their lives. That’s abuse. We are meant to grow, make mistakes, and learn how to take care of ourselves. Sadly, many churches and religions foster an unhealthy dependence on their system, emphasizing that without them and their rules/standards/structure, the people would be utterly lost and hell-bound. This is the most destructive and emotionally/spiritually stunting system a person can submit themselves to.

So what can you do?

If you’re coming out of religion, here are some tips to help you stay grounded/healthy:

*Connect with others who are in your shoes: When I first left religion, I didn’t have friends for a while – at least not any that I felt truly understood my heart. I still believed in (and had a relationship with) that which I called “God,” but I was exploring what that meant outside of the programming I’d been raised with; I had no desire to abandon it entirely. I simply needed to feel authentic, a feeling I deeply lacked in the religious environment. There were too many things I did not resonate with, and I just couldn’t lie anymore. It wasn’t until I connected with others who were on a spiritually “open” (and expanded) path that I began to truly find myself again.

Check-out Meet-up groups in your area, or connect with groups on online (Facebook has a ton). I also explored YouTube videos and found others like me (YAY), some who have become very close friends. Finding your “tribe” is an important part of the exit journey. You might be surprised how many people out there are on your same path.

*Know the withdrawal stagesThis will vary for each person (depending on how severe the religious programming hasYield to Love been). For me, it wasn’t entirely excruciating, because although I was raised around religion my entire life (including fundamentalism) I managed to escape all the extremes, and the one church I grew up going to was pretty mild, open, and free (emphasis on having a relationship with Jesus, not on the “church” itself). But I also never deeply connected to it. I’m not sure why that is, but I have NEVER been able to connect deeply to any organization. It just didn’t resonate…and never has.

But for some of my friends/family who were in pretty extreme/fundamentalist groups, it is a much more painful, excruciating, and even terrifying process to exit. If you were raised or deeply programmed in a religion that preaches legalism and constant fear of hell, it’s extremely difficult to leave (and all the more crucial that you do, when you’re ready).

*Join support groups – especially if you’ve been in anything that resembles a cult. Again, Facebook and Google communities have groups that help people who are leaving fundamentalism. It’s important to connect with others who understand the process you are going through (so you don’t feel alone). And it wouldn’t hurt to consider therapy. A lifetime of religious programming takes times to be free from. You don’t walk away unscathed. A lot of unhealthy beliefs stay with you. And frankly, most religions don’t equip you for living a healthy life outside of their boundaries. Get the support you need.

*Have compassion on yourself. I think one of the biggest challenges people who leave extreme fundamentalism have is spiritual abuse 2the ridicule and tone of ridiculousness they (and others) have toward them(selves) “how could you have ever believed in that?!”

Remember that the reasons you were in religion is because on some level it served a purpose, and the purpose is different for everyone. For some, religion was simply a stepping stone on their path of spiritual awakening, for others, it served as an escape from a destructive or abusive life.

Extreme religion often appeals to those who’ve been abused because of the strong boundaries many fundamentalist uphold. The organization will often feel “clean” and “safe” and offers an immediate sense of family and support. This is not only appealing for the abused person, but can initially feel deeply healing. The strong boundaries gives the initiate an opportunity to feel “safe” and hear messages about God – and that initial experience, regardless of how abusive the church/cult may turn out to be, is always the hardest thing to grapple with when one considers leaving. They feel the church “saved” them or that God spoke to them (or led them) there, and if they leave, it would be denying that experience.

Leaving religion also causes people to question their ability to hear God speak. This alone can be devastating. When you are raised in an environment that teaches you to listen to them (or their doctrine) above your own intuition/inner-knowing, it severely damages your ability to tune-in to your own inner guidance system. Putting your faith and trust in something external from you is disempowering. Period. It is impossible to be truly (ultimately) free when you give your power away to a person, an organization, or any doctrinal idea.

It’s okay to honor and respect your decision to be in religion. You don’t have to demonize the experience, but you also don’t have to stay in it. Every experience we have is here to teach us, and when we judge the process, we limit the understanding.

However, it is equally important to realize we grow out of things. Just as we go to 1st grade, then 2nd, then 3rd, we’re not meant to stay in the same place spiritually forever, and after a person gains a sense of safety/foundation and feels strong enough to go deeper, they often feel stunted and trapped, the once appealing religious standards now become stifling to further growth.

This typically causes one to feel a tremendous amount of guilt, (with the extra bonus of fear if the church is one that stressed the consequence of eternal damnation.)

Leaving fundamentalism can be a huge psychological mind f*&K and it takes some time to be free from the fear. But Spiritual abuse 3freedom does come, and often, if you love yourself enough to continue to go deeper with your spiritual growth, you find more freedom, love, and harmony than you’ve ever had in the church/group you were a part of. God is not a building, and spiritual growth is not limited to a group of people. Peace and expansion, as well as a deeper (and more freeing) experience of the Divine awaits all who love themselves enough to receive it.

God is not in a box. Why should you be?

(For those who ARE Christian, but have left religion or are perhaps feeling spiritually dead, this John Eldridge talk is the perfect reminder that there is nothing religious about Jesus. It’s possible to be a Jesus follower and be deeply in touch with your heart, your emotions, and your vulnerability. In fact, it’s essential:

4 Ways to Transmute Difficult Emotions

Check out the article I wrote for ModBod:

Emotions can be overwhelming. Feelings like sadness, anger, grief, and loneliness can seem unbearable, especially when we live in a society ill-equipped in understanding the purpose and function of human emotion.

The typical formula is suppression, repression, denial, or some form of intellectual or spiritual bypass. We’d just assume not have any emotion, than to feel the painful ones.

Unfortunately, we need our emotions to function optimally as a human. Emotions are an integral part of our internal guidance system, and when we ignore or suppress them, we cause major damage not only to our mental health, but our physical health as well.

Here are 4 tips to deal with difficult emotions:

1. Allow yourself to feel: The reason difficult emotions feels so…well…difficult, is because we resist them. We want to feelEnergy-and-Girl good, and when emotions arise that conflict with what we want, we typically suppress, repress, or bypass. The resistance between what we feel and what we want to feel causes immense intensity in the emotional body — this is because the emotions are being held back. When we release into the emotion, the pressure eases.

Emotions are meant to be felt. They are our vibrational indicators and are necessary for our survival and happiness in this life. Emotions let you know where you are (vibrationally) in relation to where you want to be. When we resist how we feel, our guidance system has to resort to other measures to get our attention (like sickness in the body). Give yourself permission to feel what you feel. Feeling is not failing.

2. Validate how you feel: Once we allow ourselves to feel what we feel, validation is crucial. Often we feel as if our emotions are out of context: perhaps we feel we are overreacting, or maybe we’ve been told we’re just “too sensitive.” But emotions are always valid. We feel what we feel for a reason. The intensity of what we feel may not be directly related to what is occurring at the moment, but the emotions come from somewhere, and they matter, nonetheless. For true healing to take place, the emotional body must be trusted. You don’t have to act on the emotion for validation, simply tell yourself “What I feel is okay.”

3. Release the emotion: Now that our emotions have been felt and validated, it’s time to let them go. Emotions, once felt, butterfly releasemust be released. Release is not the same as suppressing or bypassing. It’s not forcing yourself to feel differently or ignoring the pain. Release is about allowing our emotional body to run efficiently. Emotions are meant to flow. When we block the flow, it causes imbalances in the body and (as noted above), sometimes illness. If you’re having a hard time releasing an emotion, it probably has not been fully validated. Go back to step 2 and take time to validate how you feel. Deep trauma takes time to heal.

4. Direct your focus toward relief: Relief goes hand-in-hand with releasing emotion. Once you’ve let an emotion go, ask yourself what you need and give attention and focus to the feeling of relief. Your internal guidance always knows what it needs, and it’s always speaking to you. You may have to practice listening, but it will communicate. What do you need? Maybe it’s a hot bath, a walk in nature, or dinner with a friend. Don’t hesitate to pamper yourself after the release of a difficult emotion. Taking care of your emotional needs is how you develop trust with yourself and build a strong emotional body.

Emotions can be powerful tools, but terrible masters. Treat them with respect but don’t fear them. They are your friends and comrades in this life experience. Welcome them in.

Magic Makes Everything Better!

Lately I’ve been feeling so BLAH. Uninspired. Pointless, even.

As this particular brand of “low” has lingered longer than I care to entertain, I figured I might as well make the best of its visit. So I decided to pull up cozy chair, pour some hot tea, and gather a list of some of my favorite things (to add a note of enchantment to the misty fog and heavy rain that seems to have taken up residence in all the shadowy places of my being).

Thought maybe you’d all get something out of it to:

Trees. They just make me happy. Especially these enchanted ones:

woman tree

purple tree

magic tree3

Water. The perfect element to evoke when having tea with sadness (or any emotion, really).

river enchantment3

river fantasy

ocean2

The Sun. Ah the clearing, restorative, empowering energy of sunlight. Bon appetit!

(This first one, I took last fall in Utah, the second I took at a nature park in Sacramento, the third one I found on google images):

Magic stuff. Always helps me feel more alive (all from google images):.

Happy Monday!

Body Magic

What a beautiful gift we’ve been offered:

A chance to be released from the prison of the body’s programming. I’ve come to believe that harmonizing our sacral chakra angelexpanded consciousness with our body is necessary if we are to truly experience bliss in this physical dimension. The body is our space suit (so to speak) and is programmed to respond and interact with our physical world in a way that serves our soul best. The problem is, our missions are changing.

Our understanding of how this dimension works has expanded to include everything we need to not only survive, but thrive. It only makes sense, then, that our body (the most physical representation of us on earth) would need new programming in order to line-up to a new reality.

This goes far beyond “being healthy and in shape” — it’s about releasing ourselves from all the protective cocoon layers we’ve created as we’ve gone through this metamorphosis. It’s about allowing our deeper, more vulnerable aspects to be “exposed” and harmonized with our life here on this planet. Our vulnerability is a superpower, because it is the catalyst for true change and transition…and we need ALL that we are now — half versions of our Being just doesn’t work anymore.

The body is where we store everything about who we are and what we’ve experienced here. It can feel like a prison or a chariot of ascension, depending on our own beliefs about who we are and how the body reflects us. I’m learning that our inner creative energy — our spark – our flow, is designed to transform the body into everything it needs to be for the type of experience we want to have on earth.

It’s not about beating the body into submission, but rather releasing into its unique, transformative healing. It’s about surrender. It’s about trust. It’s about feminine magic.

When we connect our sacral chakra energy to our inner knowing/Source Self (and release into the experience of our divinity and our humanity making love) it is an experience unlike any other — the true reason I believe we incarnate into human bodies in the first place. This is a bliss many will never experience because to trust our bodies into a state of total surrender, naturally releases our built-in triggers, programs, and trauma.

During the process, we can either stay in a state of surrender and trust (like the caterpillar in the cocoon dissolving into a liquid goop while being transformed), or we can hold on to the identity our pain and survival has given us and resist every step of the way. That is pain. I believe this is why many get sick with diseases like cancer. Our bodies are not meant to eat us alive, but that’s what resistance looks like. That’s what depriving ourselves looks life. That’s what “giving without receiving” looks like. Need I say more?! It’s okay to release into a state of receiving. It’s okay to trust. It’s okay to believe your body, the Universe, and the Source energy within you wants to GIVE to you. Its okay to accept that gift.

I’m still removing “protective” layers I’ve had for a long time — they were my survival up to this point, but are no longer chakra magicneeded. My physical body is learning to trust all of me, and I’m learning to trust my body. It feels like a deep cleansing of the DNA and healing of the trauma I’ve experienced as more expanded aspects of my consciousness harmonize with my physical form, and “lower” (sacral chakra stuff, especially) rises up to create me anew. Baptism by fire.

We must be gentle with ourselves. Make sure to tune-into what is *REALLY* needed. What feels harmonious and self-loving? Let yourself receive it. Not in a way that says “I allow myself to feel pain” but rather in a form that says “I give myself permission to receive pleasure” — the kind of pleasure that comes from the healing only our Goddess nature can bring — the healing that comes from our Sacral Chakra — our creative and restorative energy.

Aligning with our sacral chakra energy is about receiving and trusting our feminine nature. In the process, old programs will inevitably come up for release. It’s important not to identify with your thoughts OR emotions. Just let them be released and FEEL the catharsis — the “pleasure” that follows the healing. This is what sexual energy does. It’s not “dirty” or “low” or even “fleshly” — it is Divinely nurturing and awakes us to our deepest desires/passions.

The transition from a life of surviving to a belief that it’s possible for us to thrive is a form of release that can be experienced with resistance or flow. Let’s not demonize any version of ourselves. We are human — a mix of vibrations compressed into physical form. There’s no need to judge any part of us in our desire to grow and expand. Harmony in this experience is possible if we release our need to be right or perfect. We just are. Allow. Trust. Surrender. Receive. That’s the formula.

I think the magic we’re unfolding is unlike anything this planet has ever experienced. Our “job” is not to “DO” anything — but to BE in love with every aspect of what we are — to make love to this Universe by receiving ALL of what we are (and trusting it).

I keep feeling the need to take it slow so I can unwrap every nuance of this experience like a unique piece of magic, rather than a chore to be done or a test to pass. Let’s treat ourselves that way — like dazzling treasures of darkness, not problems to be fixed. That paradigm is ending. The real question is, what do we do with all this creative/restorative/transforming energy?

Let’s make love!

What it’s Like to Die

(Shadow integration = Poetry Night)

What it’s Like to Dieblack and white flower and woman

I shut my eyes to see the room inside my head

where I collect fragile things:

One dried flower

a doll hung by the neck

And four vacant walls that whisper names of those I tucked deep into shadow.

It’s like a cemetery for the breathless forms that turn water to ice.

In the corner of a vacant window a spider web reaches forward

with one lonely thread, as if to rescue me by silk.

I scrape the red off a rose to make blood between my thighs

so I can feel what it’s like

to die.

Empowering the Sacral Chakra Online Class (Women Only)

cropped-chakra-center2.jpg

In this LIVE, online class FOR WOMEN, we will be focusing on clearing, healing, and releasing the creative/sexual energy in the 2nd chakra.

Almost every women I interact with in my intuitive work have blockages/trauma in their Sacral Chakra. The social and chakra magicreligious conditioning throughout history has done untold damage not only to female sexuality, but to our experience with the physical world around us.

We’ve been told that to take care of ourselves, to have desires, or to enjoy life (or the “flesh”) is to be selfish or unspiritual. We’ve been told our sexuality is dangerous.

Most of us carry untold amounts  guilt and shame when it comes to allowing ourselves to enjoy our senses and our physical bodies. We’ve been taught there are “spiritual” ways to live (which usually involve abstaining from anything “pleasurable”) and that there are “fleshly” (or sinful) ways of experiencing the world (typically anything involving desire).

This class is going to flip that concept on its head. We will focus on transmuting the negative energy in our sacral chakras to a divine experience of our lives as we interact with the pleasures of the physical dimension.

We are meant to enjoy the physical world. All of it.

It is through the energy of our sacral chakras that we bring heaven to earth.

Sexual energy is one of the most powerful, misunderstood, magical energies a woman possesses, and because of social programming /fear of female power, it has been completely misused/abused by the society (for centuries!).

There was a time when women would study in Priestess houses together — perfecting their sexual art and studying the deeper mysteries/magic of feminine energy, the art of seduction, and how to use those powerful energies to bring people into alignment with their God Self. History, of course, makes it appear that these sacred temples were merely brothels (and unfortunately, as society turned away from Spiritual Wisdom they became that), but the essence — the true meaning of those mysteries is still within us.

I’ve been healing/experimenting with this on my own for the past couple years, and I’ve had some PROFOUND/POWERFUL/HEALING/MAGICAL revelations and experiences. There is nothing quite like feeling empowered as a woman (especially with sexual energy) and learning how to keep it in balance, but not feeling shame about who and what we are.

This class is about understanding/experimenting with our female sexual energy (through energy work/manifestation/creative outlets) and being able to connect with other women about the process.

There is nothing less spiritual about the physical senses than our extrasensory ones. Allow yourself to enjoy both! Live with passion! That is truly how we will bring heaven on earth.

In the class we will focus on:

*Deleting shame/guilt programs stored in our Sacral Chakra

*Acknowledging and soothing sexual trauma

*Ignite our passions/dreams/desires

*Using Sexual energy to upgrade and activate our Higher dimensional awareness

*How to move our passions into a 3rd dimensional experience (without guilt!)

*Transmuting negative energy in the sacral chakra to a more positive flow/experience with the world

*Exploring sacred sex practices (energy work with the sacral chakra)

TO REGISTER for the class, fill out the form below and complete your purchase through Paypal. I will open a private kyanite stoneFacebook group for anyone who registers so we can share our experiences with the process and support one another. We need our sisterhood allies!

2015: The Year of Invincibility

Happy New Year, family!

I’m calling it the year of invincibility because that seems to be the vibration we’re all anchoring in. 2014 we learned how to manifest, we healed old beliefs and trauma, and we learned how to say “yes!’ to us (which often meant saying “no” to others).

This year is all about strengthening our vibrational boarders, activating our inner Djinns (Genies/Genius/Magicians) and vibrationsbringing forth the kingdom within us. We are becoming Masters of Polarity – we no longer live in a world where polarities exist to enslave us, but rather to strengthen us – to make our journeys more exquisite.

In the Chinese calendar, it is the Year of the Ram (or Goat). With the Ram as our ally, we can make incredible breakthroughs in our inner strength. Old habits and patterns we’ve been in for years will be released this year. We are stepping into our power as the creators we are.

Many are also calling this time “the return of Christ.” Christ is returning in our hearts – in a way that is unprecedented. It’s the return of true, Universal love – the union of our humanity with a true knowledge of our Oneness with God. When we step into this knowledge (as Christ did) we will begin to see the meaning of Jesus’s words when he said “…you will do even greater things than these…”

Stepping into our creative power means nothing more than mastering ourselves. By mastering our inner worlds, our external world will reflect that change, and it starts NOW. NOW is all that is and is where ALL of our power is held. If we surrender our power to the future, we will NEVER attain it.

Although 2015 consists of 12 months, it is all one continuous moment. Rather than making goals about things you will achieve this year, decide to receive the power of the moment. Choose right now how you want your moment to feel and anchor in those vibrations – then make a commitment to yourself to continually enhance and fuel those vibrations with thoughts, emotions, and most importantly, FOCUS, that will help strengthen your vibrational boarders.

Activating your invincibility is about just that – strengthening vibrations. We know this is a vibrational universe – that every thought, emotion, sound, and even inanimate object has a frequency to it. We also know that like frequencies match like frequencies. Make sure everything that surrounds you is in harmony with the kind of vibration you want in your life. This is not about striving for change or to make things “better” — it’s about receiving all the love and perfection that is available to you RIGHT NOW — in Tquantum-energy-healingHIS moment. It’s an act of surrender, as well as a practice in focus.

What is the vibration of the music you listen to? The movies you watch? The thoughts you continually think? The people you spend the most time with? The books you read? The decorations in your house? The food you eat? Those things powerfully contribute to the overall vibration you hold and what you are a match to. Once you clear out the old, it is important to continuously fuel the new – this is how you strengthen your vibrational boarders. This is how you assure that you will no longer be a match to old behaviors, habits, and situations.

Healing triggers points on the emotional body is one of the most important steps in strengthening your vibrational boarders, but how to best do that will be different for each person. Tune-in to how you feel. Care more about how you feel than anything else. This is crucial.

Make a choice this year to be a Master of polarity – a master of your own vibrations. Activate your inner genie (or magician) and make the choice to strengthen the vibrations in your life that bring you freedom, remembering that this hologram is PERFECT. You don’t need to change the world – you only need to decide what you want to create and step into it vibrationally. Line-up with your inner freedom and you will step into the power of your own invincibility.

Happy 2015! Make magic!

Adonai!

Monday’s Magic : A Creation Spell

Try this on for your next conscious creation:

*Stretch to release any old energy stuck in joints/muscles (any creation energyarea of the body that feels tight or contracted).

*Vigorously move the body for 5 minutes (running in place, jumping jacks, push-ups — whatever feels intuitively in alignment with releasing stagnate/pent-up energy in the body).

*Take 6 deep, cleansing breaths, raising the arms above the head with each inhale, and back down to your sides at each exhale .

*Get in a comfortable, meditative position with your spine straight and visualize a bright, purifying light cleansing all internal/external chakras and the auric field around you (this is a clearing of any energy that may block or interfere with your creation — clear spaces are crucial).

*With the eyes closed, focus on the 3rd eye chakra and see it as a blank canvas for your creation.

*Project (or paint) onto that canvas whatever you want to have manifest into your 3d reality. Make the image as vivid and colorful as you can. Feel it. Taste it. Experience it as if it were happening at this exact moment (because it is!). Take as long as you need with this step — this is where the magic blossoms.

*When you feel you are done “painting” your creation onto the canvas of your third eye, imagine a ball of pure white light swirling up from the heart of the deepest ocean caverns, and another ball of white light descending from the highest heavens — the Source of all Sources. Both balls of white Source energy are moving into your body (one from below, the other from above). One moves through your crown chakra down to your 3rd eye, the other moves in through your root chakra and up into your 3rd eye.

*See both balls of spinning white light blend with the canvas you painted on your third eye, arranging it into many particles, molecules — all the necessary elements of the physical reality it is forming.

*Once you feel all the elements have blended together into one creation energy2beautiful vortex, send the energy back down through all of your chakras, and up again into your heart chakra, where it becomes alchemicalized with the Kingdom that is within. This is where you trust in the Higher Love and Wisdom of the Existence to add/take away any and all necessary elements. Stay with the image of the energy in your heart chakra until you feel it has completely dissolved and harmonized with your etheric and physical body.

*Acknowledge and surrender to the perfection of this hologram and the brilliance of its ability to reflect back to you exactly where you are in your expansion journey. Accept your journey with no judgement — remember you are perfect.

*Finally, feel your heart chakra burst wide open with the love and excitement of this co-creation, shinning all you have created into the physical world around you. Know that this energy carries within it a magnetism that will bring your creation into manifestation.

And so it is with you…

 

 

Scientists have now successfully demonstrated Technological Telepathy!

Check-out the latest from Jordan Pearce of Spirit Science!

Telepathy between all of us has always been an exciting conversation to me. Ever since episode 1 of Spirit Science where we discussed how thoughts act as waves between individuals, rather than isolated things that occur separate from each other in our brains.

Today that conversation gets expanded to the other side of the equation. While I believe and know for certain that we all have the ability to tap into that naturally, I also can see quite clearly that we have the opportunity to speed up that evolution in a holistic way using modern technology.

I know, I know, there is also a great risk in this idea, for the consequences of doing it wrong could result in a broken paradigm of control and fear on the human race. I understand the fear that comes along with this idea of corporations tapping into our brains and making us want or think certain ways… It’s a scary thought, and we are going to have to experience a global change in order to truly feel safe using technology to advance our mental abilities in a safe way for everyone.telepathy1

I know for a fact that it IS truly possible to create this in a holistic way, but it has to be done with the right intention, a pure and genuine intention operating from Christ Consciousness. That is the level of awareness where virtue, love, honesty and truth are the guiding force that compels one’s action… It’s clear that there are not a great deal of those who operate from this space on the planet, at least.. not yet ;)

But regardless, I am talking about all of this because a new advancement in research and technology has led to some very early phases of brain-to-brain communication withOUT any invasive cords or wires into a human skull. That’s right, humans have now successfully transmitted data from one brain to another using nothing but external readers.

In this first of its kind study, an international team of researchers communicated 2 words across a 500 mile distance using the internet, from one brain sender to 3 individual receivers of the data.

“We wanted to find out if one could communicate directly between two people by reading out the brain activity from one person and injecting brain activity into the second person, and do so across great physical distances by leveraging existing communication pathways,” explains coauthor Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD, Director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. “One such pathway is, of course, the internet, so our question became, ‘Could we develop an experiment that would bypass the talking or typing part of internet and establish direct brain-to-brain communication between subjects located far away from each other in India and France?’”

It turned out the answer was “yes.”

The data were the words “Ciao” and “Hola”, which were described appearing in the receivers head as if they were wispy flashes of information under their eyelids. I might pose that they saw the information in their 3rd eyes: registering in the pineal gland, but that data isn’t something that has been discussed or released. My speculation only :)

TelepathyThe exciting part about this to me is that they were able to do it with external scanners. They didn’t need to drill holes in the skulls. That’s a pretty big deal. The technology is rather large at this point in time, but I could imagine that in the future this technology could be compacted down to the size of…say, a small crystal.

One day we may all simply have access to all information at all time through a mental internet – which truly is just a mental connection to all of our brains all at once. The collective consciousness of mankind. Imagine that? The next level of the internet, where you are it – you are inside of it and it is made up of you combined with everyone else there is…

And that is a pretty amazing idea, wouldn’t you agree?

3 Reasons to Abandon Self-Improvement

One of my latest articles for Lotus Effect:

We live in a culture obsessed with self-improvement. Society teaches us from a young age that to be of value in this world we must be “better” than others — we must constantly strive to improve ourselves. America’s self-help culture is an $11 billion dollar industry. We’ve made improvement a commodity and we’re selling it like a constellation prize. The problem with self-improvement is that we’ve created an unattainable perfection and in the midst of our “striving” we are trained to hate ourselves.

Here are 3 reasons to abandon self-improvement:

*It’s elusive: Striving to be better puts happiness somewhere in the future. We believe we will happier when we lose more weight, buy that passion-for-work-pepper-virtual-assistants-300x212house, finish our degree. When we focus all of our attention on a future goal we forget what’s good and beautiful about our lives in the moment. We put our happiness on hold.

*It breeds self-hate: Always believing there is something about us that needs to be fixed and improved upon is classic breeding ground for low self-esteem. Sure there’s nothing wrong with wanting to grow and expand, but as soon as we tell ourselves we need to “improve” we are simultaneously saying we are not good enough as we are.

*It causes unwanted stress: Excessive striving causes huge amounts of stress to the body (emotional, mental, and psychical). Even the word “strive” has a depleting energy to it. The art of living well is not about “striving” but about learning what it means to BE. When we master being present in each moment, peace is ours.

Next time you find yourself stressing about all the self-improvements you “need” to make, take a minute to breathe deeply, look around at your life and appreciate all that you already are, all that you’ve accomplished, and the immense beauty and power of BEING in the NOW.

Now is where life is. Now is where happiness can be welcomed into your life. Now is where your power lies. Don’t wait for a future event when you will be “better” — love, accept, and appreciate yourself NOW.

How to Recognize and Heal Emotional Triggers

Another one of my musings from Lotus Effect:

Each moment gives us an opportunity to experience all of our thoughts, vibrations, and traumas in the physical. How we respond to this hologram says a lot about the balance of our emotional body. Emotions themselves are indicators of our vibrational state and powerful tools to facilitate change and healing in our lives. In fact, one of the most beneficial ways for us to take care of the energy in our body is to recognize and learn from our emotional triggers.

Triggers are not only something survivors of war suffer from. A trigger can be activated any time the emotional body experiences a disharmonic resonance that correlates with a past negative experience. Moments we are caught off guard, irritated, or unexpectedly emotional about a person or situation we’ve encountered are triggers on the surface of a much deeper negative core belief or experience. Most people brush their triggers off as “overreacting” and dismiss how they feel, while others attach a story to their triggers and project those beliefs onto themselves and the people around them.

Here are 4 ways to deal with emotional triggers that help bring balance/alignment to the body:

*Recognize and accept your trigger: Notice the trigger and accept it without attaching any story to it. Accept how you feel, even if mindscape it seems like the emotion is out of context. You don’t have to let the feelings control you, but you can recognize they are there to teach you. Don’t minimize how you feel. Learn from it.

*Put the Pieces of the Puzzle together: While you don’t want to approach your emotions like problems to be fix, it is important to ask them what they represent. Once you’ve identified how you feel, it’s important to ask yourself “When was the first time I ever felt this emotion?” Tracing the emotion to its origins allows us to see the soft spots in our emotional body – our trigger points. Any emotion the brain associates with past trauma (or negative events) will activate the same pathway of the original trauma. When we understand the connection, we can see that how we emotionally handle our current experiences, are reflections of our past emotional experiences.

*Accept and Validate: Once you identify your emotions and trace them back to their origins, allow yourself to accept and validate the original feelings. Tell your emotional body you will no longer discount or abandon yourself in how you feel. Give yourself permission to grieve over the original event or trauma and let yourself know that it matters – you matter. Get angry if you need to. Feel whatever you feel without judgment or action – simply let the energy of each emotion take its course. Send love to all timelines and fractures of the original trauma. Choose to embrace the moment as the new start it is.

*Laugh: We don’t have to always take ourselves so seriously. Laughter is the vibration of JOY – one of the highest vibrations we can hold. Allow yourself to have fun with this hologram and enjoy the experience with a sense of wonder and joy – even the hard stuff. This is not a laughter of invalidation or suppression — it’s simply a nod to the hilarity of this hologram we are co-creating together. When we’re stuck in the eddies of our egos, laughter is an instant cure.

Feeling Crazy? Join the Party! (Lotus Effect)

Because it’s relevant not only to my own life, but so many of the clients I’ve been working with, I thought I’d share another article I wrote for Lotus Effect (just to remind you you’re not alone!).

Feel Crazy? Join the Party!

Feeling more emotional or drained than usual? Don’t fret. The Earth energiesplanetary vibrations have been intense; from solar flares and super moons to mercury retrogrades, the energies of our world are at an all-time high.

Not only are astrological events affecting our emotional worlds, cell phone radiation and technological interference in our earth’s electromagnetic field affect how we think and feel. Not to mention, as the consciousness of the planet continues rise, all unhealed past trauma and negative patterns in our lives are coming to the surface. Past survival mechanisms/coping methods no longer work, and many people feel their emotional lives have become too difficult to manage.

Here is a list of 10 common symptoms people experience with the planet’s current energy flux:

  1. Sudden and unexpected bursts of emotion Earth energies
  2. Constantly feeling on the verge of tears
  3. Past memories/trauma resurfacing
  4. Relationships falling apart or under extreme pressure (more than usual)
  5. Headaches
  6. Unexplained thyroid and adrenal issues that cannot be healed
  7. Restless sleep
  8. Feeling overly tired and fatigued
  9. A sense of time standing still, speeding up, or not existing at all
  10. Feeling detached/disassociated from your body

For those who make the choice to line-up with these energies and allow their consciousness to shift, let go of outdated belief systems, and heal old wounds, the shift has proved to be not only bearable, but beneficial. Choosing the path of expansion is not always pleasant, but it’s necessary for survival.

If you’re having any of the above experiences, it’s important to own up to how you feel. The Universal energies are calling us all out – there is no more room to pretend, bypass, or suppress. It’s time to take care of our individual energy imprint on this planet and do the work to be healthy/balanced people. We are all responsible for what’s happening in our world because everything we think, feel, and do affects everyone.

Here are three important things you can do to start leveling up with the Universe:

  1. Consider how your current habits make you feel. Pay close attention to what you put in and around your body. What kind of music do you listen to? What is the quality of the food you eat? How do you spend your time? Everything you put in your body (and your mind) affects you and everyone around you. It is important to take good care of yourself and get in touch with what you truly need to be healthy.
  2. Do an emotional detox. Commit to healing any and all old energy patterns that continually repeat themselves. Pay attention to how you feel and allow old emotions to surface. Once they emerge, ask yourself what you need to heal and listen to what your intuition tells you. Distracting yourself and stuffing down emotions only gets the energy stuck in your body (which then manifests in physical ailments and disease). Plus, suppressing just doesn’t work anymore. It’s time to face how you feel and deal with it. You’ll feel better when you do.
  3. Do a physical detox. An herbal or juice cleanse works wonders at clearing out old energy stored in our bodies. Even giving your body a break from over stimulating food can be healing. Listen to your body and do whatever feels right to you, but commit to self-care. Your body works hard at keeping you healthy, and with the intense energies on the planet right now, it’s important to give it an extra boost.

Whatever you choose to do with this information, just remember, you’re not alone.

 

 

Narcissists and Empaths: The Ego Dynamic

Originally posted on Let Me Reach with Kim Saeed:

opposites

There’s a lot of buzz in the media these days about Empaths/Highly Sensitives and Narcissists attracting to one another.  One popular theory is that Narcissists prey on Empaths and Sensitives because of their overly giving nature.  While that is primarily true, there is another reason that goes even deeper, and it has to do with ego.

Narcissists

First, let’s consider the definition of egotistical as it relates to Narcissists in general:

adjective

  1. Excessively conceited or absorbed in oneself; self-centered.
  2. Arrogance, selfishness, greed, a sense of entitlement to whatever one wants.

Too much ego can lead to serious problems with treating people as means to ends: such people (i.e., Narcissists) feel entitled to do whatever it takes to get what he/she wants. This leads to abuses of ends/means reasoning (using other people to fulfill ego’s wants).

It’s no surprise that the criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder (DSM-IV) states that people with the disorder:
