Happy Holidays

Wishing You the Best of the Season and Every Blessing into 2011!

Happy Holidays!

With the trending energies over the last 2 months, I’ve had an ‘action-adventure’ type of feeling with the non-stop pace that goes along with those kinds of shows!

Hence the snowball ~ It reminds me of Indiana Jones. (with a smile)

In retrospect of 2010: I avoided ‘catastophic failure’ among other Fun Stuff such as:

  • 3 Layers of Health Teleseminar programs
  • Accepting more speaking & collaboration opportunities
  • Hosting a monthly Energy program
  • Family stuff: Skiing, Wrestling, Graduation, Driving, Sets of Renovations, Flood, Winning Things, Volunteering, Teaching, Theatre Events…

Looking forward to 2011 and ‘in the works’ plans:

  • Complete the sites merger & expand the learning programs
  • 2 Layers of Health programs – Big changes ‘behind the curtain’
  • Find time for my other projects (!) – My editor has infinite patience
  • More collaborative fun and projects with others

Below is my first pick of image because it reminds me of: a conversation with a friend recently, childhood memories and our connection with angelic presence. I chose the one above because I *love the excitement & drama! Have you met my friend the Yeti? Click here!

Choose Now

The amount of ’emergency calls’ I’ve received in the last 4 weeks is a real reflection of what’s going on. This is not just the holiday season or the economy. I apologize for not getting this note out earlier, but I’ve been knee deep in it myself and have been prepping for some pretty big & exciting changes in 2011!

Heaving Change: Use the Momentum

The energies look more than a little chaotic… it reminds me of the kind of earthquake where the earth really rolls & churns.

The bad news is that it’s hard to tell which way is up, old stuff is being regurgitated from the past and things thought resolved have suddenly made an appearance again.

The good news is that there are very few undercurrents and if you really decide to ‘work’ the energy currents, you can make very good use of the energy momentum. How, you ask?

This is decision time. Choose Now & hold your Higher Vision.

    Sometimes it’s appropriate to be able to flow, absorb the movement and coast along. This isn’t what I’ve seen lately. There are random things coming up for folks:

    1. You are posed with life changing opportunity. These are very real forks in the road with no going back. Are you going to live your dream? (risk, fear & all?)
    2. Others with influence in your life are making choices that are in-congruent with your vision for the life you want. It’s like they can’t hear you or aren’t taking you seriously. There can’t be any bluffing or posturing here when approaching this.
    3. You have a strange awareness that you aren’t acting like yourself. Others are provoking a weird, kind of fake response system within you. You have to decide on reality over fantasy. Most often I’ve seen reality compromise because of a deep longing desperation. This is a call to align with a deeper inner truth.

    Once you choose, follow up and follow through. Get the wheels in motion.

      This is the scaffolding for your unfolding vision. If you aren’t flowing with your vision, the energy will churn and you will feel carried away and without control. Have you ever been whitewater rafting? It’s better to be paddling!

      • This is not the moment for catharsis, processing or introspection.
      • If it comes up to be looked at, face it. Get help & make an actionable plan if needed.
      • Measure your choices against your inner awareness and follow the aligning path.

      This seems to have taken people off guard a bit. Reference back to the last newsletter for the reasons. Click here. Then reference back to the one before that to see what is coming to a head right now. Click here. Of course there will always be struggles, but now is the time to stake your claim in the direction of the life you want.

      What if you don’t? 2 points:

      1. You create time. Not a bad thing if you can rest with your choice since new opportunities will always unfold as the Universe conspires for your well-being. Not a good thing if you’ll face regret and are discontent with the way things are right now.
      2. Facing overwhelm or emptiness. Without personal investment in your visions, they will begin to feel hollow and like they will never manifest. And truly, if you don’t action your vision, how will they evolve into being? Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

      Even a seemingly downward spiral has momentum that can rebound like a boomerang and it doesn’t have to end in a crash. Just allow for unexpected avenues and explore, explore, explore! It is this same strategy that I used this month when someone used the words, “Catastrophic failure” to me ~ regarding something to do with me. (!)

      General encouragement: Take advantage of the movement that’s already around and try to remember that although change can be rough, it’s got a momentum in place that’s very hard to generate from a ‘stand still’ position. It’s this same energy that will carry you through to the other side of the chaos.

      Off Beat

      There are a couple more superficial energy trends that are worthy of note. Interestingly, it is not affecting everyone, only some. Are you affected?

      Attitude & action

      This is a curious one… actually, you probably know that I find them all curious. This time it’s curious because there seems to be a stronger disconnect between working reality and the conscious perception of it. It’s showing up in 2 ways:

      1. Not registering what is actually going on and an inner void forming
      2. Registering reality and not wanting to believe it

      From what I’ve seen, this has been created by or strongly related to ‘visioning.’

      Of course we all have to envision our future and it’s directly linked to how we vision our past. What is critical is congruence with your:

      • Higher Vision
      • Longer term goals
      • Life / person you want to be

      What if you are incongruous? It will look something like this:

      I want to turn left. I am going to turn left. I am turning left. (Turn right). Wow! That didn’t really work out! I wonder what happened there? (Stop.) I had better meditation on this situation and figure it out, do some inner work, heal from this event… (Keep going. Repeat & come full circle.) Okay, I’m on the right path now / again. This feels right. I want to turn left…

      This is why 4D is ‘infinitely horizontal’ – meaning that you can meander around forever! Without acting in alignment with something on the ‘horizon point’ you will lose your way and create all kinds of Time.

      What does it feel like to walk in alignment with something on the horizon line?

      • Scary – because it is a path you haven’t taken yet (whereas the restricting patterns are constrictive, but familiar)
      • Exhilarating – because there is real growth & movement. Make it an adventure!
      • Fast – because you aren’t creating extra time for no reason… Faster isn’t better though; it’s about what is appropriate because going too fast can be dangerous, too.

      Compare your path to driving on the road. You are in cooperation with all the other drivers (hopefully), operating within a set of parameters both within & without (your car & the traffic laws). How can you create the most harmony, ease & grace on your journey?

      • Be calm (attitude)
      • Be the example of a good driver (action)
      • Be respectful & considerate (attitude)
      • Work with the rules & create harmony (action & attitude)
      • Be responsible for the route you choose to take. (attitude & action)

      Attitude & Action are key components in moving your life forward and creating the reality you want. By aligning those 2 things with your Higher Vision, you can create fulfillment & inner peace.

      Chaos Confusion & Choice

      Forks in the road, crazy events, rapid changes… Where do you look?  What are you supposed to do?

      Tangled Energy Lines

      Lately, the issues seem to have amplified. Believe it or not, it is a continuation of the trend from the last 2 months. It is a consequence of the ‘shingle like’ overlapping choices that just keep coming. What has changed? What has highlighted this period more?

      The dynamic looks like tangled energy lines. Bottom line: Folks are trying to ‘slow down’ in terms of wave length in order to slip into the flow… but, are translating that in a mis-guided way in terms of choices and actions. KEYS:

      • Wavelength is not the same as taking your time or delaying: Yes, you create space on the timeline (like bigger space between the vibrational oscillations), but at the same time you can be flighty, indecisive, ungrounded and uncertain. They are NOT the same.
      • There is never a moment when Self-Honor is not the most important factor.
      • Hard choices still have to be made with good will in order to maintain your momentum (and it does get easier) because delay will only make it harder as the energy builds up. Then windows of opportunity can start closing which generates a decompression, but you also my experience regrets that can bind your energy to the past.

      Where are the tangles? Generally folks are confusing the dimensional layers. It is important to note that All Layers are important, not just the higher ones. For example, you can’t meditate your life to change. You can meditate (5D) to change your frequency, gain insight and relax your system ~ but then you need to make choices and take actions from that feeling (4 & 3D). So, what do you do in a practical sense? You need to:

      • Respect the people around you for Exactly where they are & who they are (Key: Actions speak louder than words.)
      • Assess how much stretch they have in willingness to grow (Usually very little, but Any is *very good.)
      • Honor Your inner truth and make choices from your heart: If you are acting for or against anybody else, it is the same energy coin. The choices need to come from within, in loving compassion for the circumstances around you. (Not reactive like martyr or savior patterns.)

      The love and good will from 5D isn’t often expressed in our working reality, and if folks are claiming to do so, what I’ve noticed is that it more often is expressed as righteousness from a 4D place rather than being the real deal. That leads to disillusionment, not to mention that there’s almost no way to work with these people. So, don’t. It’s not your job to change them. It’s your job to be the best that you can be and make your choices from there.

      There is one more critical factor. As you flow forward in your life and maintain congruence, BIGGER choices will come up. When you start making slightly different choices, often the differences aren’t so big that large change is noticeable. As they add up, the divergence from the way you used to make choices becomes greater even if you are still just making minor little changes – they add up to the point that you look over and can see how big the difference is… and then others around you will begin to notice, too.

        • Two scenarios usually happen then:
          • You get scared because things are so far from what you would have previously considered within the normal range.
          • Others want you to return to how they knew you or how they expect you to be. You’ve changed the rules and they don’t know what to think about it.

        What to do about it? Loop back up to the top of the article and use your tools to remain centered within: yoga, meditation, walking…

              This bigger energy hurdle will continue for another couple of weeks and then it will smooth out. Hang in there and breathe. Also, noticing the beauty around you can really help put things in perspective.

              Focus Within

              Okay, multiple reports from multiple sources: It wasn’t as easy this month as many had anticipated. Change can be easy, it really depends on where you place your focus.

              Your Inner Truth

              There are several factors… as usual. What causes energetic turbulance? The main answer is:

              • INCONGRUENCE ~ This is the umbrella answer. Sub-categories are:
                • To Self: resulting in mixed emotions, fear of rejection, lack of self respect, external referencing, feeling paralyzed…
                • To Your Own Choices: resulting in second guessing, failure to realize your goals, feeling betrayed by life, confusion as to why things aren’t unfolding as anticipated…
                • To Your Ideals: resulting in low self worth, bitterness and jaded feelings towards ‘the system,’ justified, dis-empowered…

              Sure there’s more, but lets just chew on that for a bit. Instead, lets consider the ‘Wild Card’ factors:

              • Your level of self-awareness – The stakes get higher and choices can be both easier and harder depending on your congruence
              • Your level of education – This is not about having a PhD, although that can have implications of its own. Possibly unexpectedly, you should be aware that there can be huge problems coming from the amount of self-help & spiritual workshopy type of information you reference.

              No matter where you get your information, the most important reference point has to be yourself!

              This may seem like a no-brainer and you may be saying, “Of course, I always reference within,” but I urge you to double check. When life is throwing curve balls at you, start by assessing what kind of inner talk is happening and what kinds of feelings are coming up. Clues indicating incongruence:

              • You didn’t think life would be like this… and aren’t happy with the outcome.
              • You feel ‘at fault’ and like if you’d been better or done some mysterious ‘right’ thing that your circumstances would be different.
              • You apply principles on faith and are unhappy with the result.

              These may seem wishy-washy, but that’s because the causal dynamic is just as wishy-washy. You can’t peg your identity, choices and life on a wishy-washy or ‘feel-good’ dynamic. It won’t hold up! More importantly – It won’t hold You up in times of trial… And I’m not talking about ‘being tested’ as so many esoteric teachers are fond of saying.

              So, what of it? Where are the nuts & bolts of what’s going on?

              The faster you can tune in => Deeply <= (and that needs to be stressed because we’re not talking about ‘feelings’ here) the faster you can feel the flow of life. ‘Life’ will still happen to you, but you will have a resilience that will keep everything from feeling like a judgment and a sentence. Life will *not* look the same and it will be a shock at first, but once you get used to operating from a place of flow, this ‘new reality’ won’t seem so foreign.

              Looking forward… It looks to me to be very similar, to last month with the visual of changes / choices overlapping like shingles. You can take a ‘time out’ to assess, but the flow doesn’t seem to be affected by this much and if we compare the energy flow to water, moving with it will seem to afford more ease and grace than trying to stop mid-stream or more difficult yet, to go against the tide. Curiously, if you are moving at the same rate as the flow, you will appear to be and it will seem to you like there isn’t much de-stabilizing motion because you are ‘in synch’. A practical example would be the start of the school year: You can go with it, or decide to think about it, but school is still in session.

              Change Change Change

              Since the Fork in the Road from the last update, things are a lot smoother… mostly, for most. However, it is critical to keep moving.

              The Stopper is Unplugged

              The reason for the change is because when sitting at the Fork in the Road, effectively an “energetic stopper” was in place, but once the choice is made, the flow begins.

              A newsletter mention from early August was made of using exercise as  ‘… a tool I’m using to work with the current energy patterns.” This is powerful because:

              Imagine the energy behind your choice as water. The size of your choice and impact on your life determines what size dam is in place. (Usually a fear.) Energy, like water likes to flow – in fact it is a defining principle for Health.

              Time delays in making appropriate choices have 1 of 2 consequences:

              1. The water / energy dries up or dissipates (= low motivation, lack of creativity, feeling stuck & tired)
              2. The water / energy builds up (= feeling ‘antsy’, restless & unsettled, weight on your shoulders, overwhelm)

              When the ‘dam breaks’ / or the choice is made and acted upon, it’s not unlike whitewater rafting; depending on the impact of your choice(es) on your life. In whitewater rafting, there’s a reason they give everybody a paddle and you don’t just hang on for dear life: it makes a difference!

              Like the flow of life, the river will carry you down stream and you will want to influence your path (choices / attitudes / actions).

              • It is useless to paddle against the river.
              • It is useless hide in the bottom & pretend you are elsewhere
              • It is helpful to use whatever tools you have to empower the ride.

              Tools: Whereas at the fork, you’d want stillness so you have the clarity to make the best possible choice for you, this time exercise is indicated. Any exercise will do. Walk, hike, bike. Do a sport, yoga, aerobics. Do this within your limits because the energetic aim isn’t actually ‘fitness’ and pushing boundaries, it’s to facilitate the flow.

              Challenging energies like doubt, fear & regret can emerge. Fitness is just a byproduct and exercise helps to ‘ground the energy’ and:

              • clear your head & refocus your mind
              • exhilarate your body & promote flow
              • stabilize your emotions & build confidence

              Interestingly, this is not a solo energy pattern. The visual reminds me of shingles where a new one starts half-way overlapping with the first. If you keep moving, you will fare much better than if you pause once you make your choice.  If you stop, you may feel knocked down by the ‘next wave’.

              Fork In The Road

              This energy update is a little early, but the current trend is really putting a lot of people in what seems to be a tough place.

              Inner Truth

              The last week or so has been incredibly challenging for so many.There have been fascinating reports of:

              • Warping time – both extended & and shrinking
              • Loss of energy & will to act
              • Dilemmas requiring deeper Personal introspection
              • Cravings for cleanses / detoxifying (!)

              So, what’s happening?

              3D / 4D – As described above, it’s more like symptoms than the actual issue. It’s like the tsunami that was actually caused by the earthquake.

              We’ve come to an energetic fork in the road, or a pivot point. Usually we are happiest when there’s smooth and straight sailing, to have a ripple of change – and not just any change, but one with a component of choice with direct impact – can seem intimidating, especially if you don’t like the options.

              What does that mean to you & how do you figure it out? (whatever ‘it’ is) There are 2 places to look:

              1. To the furthest practical point on your own personal horizon. ie. Further than the issue so that you have something to guide you, like a lighthouse.
              2. To the deepest place within. You won’t feel settled about any choice without going here. Superficial solutions that pacify the circumstances only still the surface waters and there can still be tremendous undercurrents creating energetic strain.

              Bottom line: You need to honor Your Deepest Truth. (as always, but that’s another conversation) Characteristics:

              • The main ’emotion’ is a compassionate caring – it will never be ‘against’ someone or reactive
              • It will hold benefits for All
              • It will feel steady – not a rush of energy / power
              • It will feel certain – Your inner Truth is not wishy-washy

              Recommended tools (generally): Awareness of breath, quiet, stillness

              I did recommend favored music with a faster beat to one person to get the ball rolling, but in this circumstance, he needed to ‘shift gears’ because his intention was to bridge to the next energy wave since his introspection had led him to some tough truths. This really demonstrates how, although there can be general trends, Your unique energy signature & circumstance needs to be your first priority in figuring out what tools will work for You in creating contentment.

              Deep Roots

              The current supportive energies feel activated, calm and ready. Are you activated, calm and ready?… Are you tapping in to your inner resources?

              Breath, Go Within, then Rise Up!

              The deeper you can go within this month, the better. The energy this month is ‘widening the divide,’ so to speak. ~ It’s like super-duality. Energies noticed:

              • Stronger reactions
              • Changing minds
              • A whole lot less relaxation than expected

              Generally, these energies have been acting like gusting winds. It’s there one minute, and gone the next with rapid movement from confident to questioning leaving you with a sense of, “What the…?”

              There’s momentum, then there’s hesitation.
              There’s certainty, then there’s doubt.
              There’s all signs indicating ‘A Go’… then there’s a red flag.

              This start / stop can feel frustrating and put you on edge, but this is where the Digging Deep solution comes into play. A strong tree isn’t uprooted by gusts because it has strong roots as a foundation. Think about your Cultural, Familial, Spiritual roots. This energy is Root Chakra opportunity happening!

              So, where’s the relief? => Where it always is: 5D+ <=  It’s just that we need to remember to honor that which has supported us in the past.

              What is quite interesting is that there seems to be a movement (back) to your deeper values – not that you lost them, but when life is happening and you are out buying groceries, it’s easy to forget to Honor the Moment.

              It can be more on the physical side such as:

              • Athletics & Nutrition (eating right)
              • Routines & systems
              • Observation of the growth of plants

              It can be more on the etheric side:

              • Prayer, meditation or mantra
              • The mystic imagery of day-dreaming with clouds
              • Consideration of breath connecting everything

              The point is that there is real growth here and it has the potential to re-orient us to outside interests or inner perspective and / or a good balance of both so long as we keep our core reference as the priority. Refer to comfortable and supportive tools already at your disposal. That will set you up with a stronger foundation for August which is feeling to be more of exploration & freedom in essence.

              June 2010: Recalibrations

              There seems to be a lot going on, but don’t be fooled. It is the same dynamic with multiple outlets.

              Recalibrating, De-Sensitizing & Land Legs (Overwhelm)

              Maybe this is how overwhelm occurs… It looks like only one thing and it’s a continuation of a trend more than anything new. So, I’m almost inclined to discount it which would be unfair because so much seems to be going on – and on the practical level, it is.

              What’s up? What kind of things are happening?

              1. Apathy & disconnected emotion
              2. Results of poor follow through
              3. “Pop-up’s”
              4. Anticipated happenings

              Apathy is the worst of all in my opinion. It’s much harder to create something out of nothing and usually that numb feeling overlays some pretty big stuff which can be hard to look at honestly. This is not optimal when working with any circumstance because without that emotional presence, poor judgment is usually the result. It’s not just inconvenient or out-of-touch, but downright dangerous with consequences into the future. Just because you can’t feel it doesn’t mean there are no consequences.

              Follow-through. This actually has more to do with responsibility and minding your own business. That is not meant in a ‘don’t be nosey’ way, but in recognition that You have the consequences for Your life and You have the ability to influence / choose / decide / change things. If you rely on others to take care of your business, it might feel good to be taken care of – but only until you have to accept the outcome. No empowerment there.

              Pop-up Events. Life happens and it’s not going to be perfect, but it is in the imperfection that we find peace. The pop-up’s reported are the same as any other time unexpected events happen – seemingly random things that need dealing with in some immediacy. See what I mean about almost discounting it?  (It’s just another minor crisis. Two personal examples: a flood & a graduation.) Also of note, it isn’t just crisis, there are good pop-up’s too.

              Anticipated events happening. This is great in that you can feel as prepared as possible, but add everything else on your plate and the overwhelm can begin. With overwhelm comes a desire to escape. With the desire to escape comes the mind chatter validating the choice to act. With a validated action (coming from overwhelm) comes a glamorized, righteous response… Then people usually call me.

              How long will it last? This is seed energy, which means that it doesn’t have to last if the seeds you plant are of responsibility and personal integrity. On the flip side, as mentioned above, apathy reinforced is a tough to move out of and often will take a major catalytic event to motivate a shift.

              What is the deeper dynamic?

              • Energetic re-calibration and geometric alignment with New Energy. The New Energy is simply a life progression thing. You can put your finger on it if you want, but it won’t change / solve the flow of life.
              • It’s like having the landscape being swapped out from under your feet while you are walking on it. Some will experience a large landscape change, others more minor. Either way, you need to get your new ‘Land Legs’
              • With the enfoldment of these experiences, there is a de-sensitizing process. Everything has to have a ‘first’ and once that’s over, it has more of a been there – done that – no problemo feel.  You will be able to look back and say, “Ah yes, I was so naive back then. I handle this with way more ease now.”

              The advice is the same as last month. Keep your focus on each step and deal with things as they come up for the most grace & ease. (And don’t always buy your own story.) Don’t judge yourself, but consider the terms: responsibility, integrity, accountability. Make a clear boundary for yourself and proceed.

              May 2010: Bumpy Road

              The dynamics observed for this month are a bit crazy… and it looks to move through June as well. It’s actually been quite hard to sit down and write this although the pressure to write has been here with me for 2 weeks. I’ve been catching glimpses for roughly a month prior to that and based on my observations & client communication, it makes me want to say: “Bumpy Road Ahead!” (Actually we are already on it.)

              Act, React, Respond & Adapt

              It’s a bit harder this month because it’s not all ‘Rainbows & Unicorns’ to quote a client, (I love that saying!) and it may feel like you’ve been walking to the beat of a different drummer, to steal another cliche.

              It’s all about:

              • adaptability & responsiveness
              • resourcefulness & creativity
              • choice & presence

              Let’s look more closely at this:

              People, news, events… look to pop out of the blue. It’s unexpected occurrences, bends in the road, obstacles and re-directions.

              There can be compounded drama as our fears make it ultra personal and dis-proportionate. There are a lot of magnetic forces and you will find the straightest path through all that is going on by keeping your head down and dealing with whatever is coming. This makes it easier to learn as you go and be able to reflect back on the wisdom gained. Strangely, often the straight line takes us on the most direct / fastest route, but it doesn’t seem like this will result in a time compression / reduction (sorry), just an increase in grace & ease.

              You are also encouraged towards a movement back to the basics and your foundational tools. This can be your use of Exercise, your Sacred practice or *Whatever has given you strength in the past. In a sense it helps stabilize you like lowering your center of gravity, physically speaking ~ like bracing yourself. From this perspective you can adapt and boomerang the energies to reinforce your uniqueness, your gifts and your interactions in an empowering and fulfilling way.

              What does all of this mean in real terms? That’s harder to say although there seem to be 3 trends:

              • Health
              • Environment
              • Responsibility

              The good news is that Relationships don’t seem to be a focus right now except as a peripheral to the above.

              What is also interesting to me is that I’m seeing a significant group of people who already seem to have their ‘sea legs’ and although this is happening for them too, it is as if they hardly notice. They aren’t exempt from the dynamic, they are just better at navigating it.

              As a bit of a side note: Someone mentioned to me about ‘Mercury Retrograde’… and I’m not an astrologer, so I don’t really know what that means, but I do know that within the Law of Free Will, we can choose to proceed along the way with the maximum amount of Dignity that we can muster ~ not just now, but always.

              There are a lot of opportunities to develop flexibility and Dance with the flow of events. You have your mind, your ability to choose, your rich emotions and your experiences, all of them, add to the tapestry of your life ~ and it’s beautiful.

              Breathe and know that this will pass, like every other trend.
