The energies these past couple weeks, months, and years have been increasing in the intensity of change, integration, spiritual growth, and discernment.
Are you feeling the growing shifting waves of energies? What a ride so far huh?
I am NOT sure if this post is just for me to take stock of where I am, where I was and where I am headed or if this message will resonate with you and inspire you in some way.
With all that’s unraveling, shifting, disrupting, up-leveling, I’ve learned one string of things over the last 16yrs since THIS journey began for me after the struggles of leaving a domestic abusive marriage … that is to
- Surrender into the natural flow of life
- Listen to the divine soulful whispers within
- And take action.
Who I have become is thanks to the connection to spirit & spiritual medicine I have learned to embrace in my life and in my work – over many decades.
It is the one thing I see missing in today’s “modern colonialist consumerist culture”.
What is missing … is the link to the divine connection to the spirit of life, its wisdom and its medicine.
Why is that?
I think the why will need to be answered another day as that’s a little more complicated rooted with weavings into patriarchy, systemic oppression, colonization, and control.
I believe the fundamental story in movie Avatar eloquently showed us if you can get passed the sci-fi box office plot. I always wondered if the movie was released prematurely as its message is needed NOW.
We do NOT have to work harder.
We do NOT need to go back to school and get another certificate or degree.
We do NOT have work ourselves into the grave.
We just need to tap into the infinite wisdom of the spiritual world. Think I am nuts?
We all have gut instincts that have helped us save our child from something or to close a sale or to hit some mark successfully.
We have all experienced this to some degree. Some call it alignment. I see those instincts connected to this same spiritual world I am speaking about.
But first, let me share with you a glimpse of my 2020 year and how I am moving forward.
My 2020 Story
The year 2020 started out to be the best year in my career and personal life since I left my abuser in 2005 (who near destroyed me). I was on par to have the best year of my career, looking to expand my office, hire my first employee, and work towards more professional education. While working with professionals and state agencies to make this all happen and to become whole in my own trauma recovery & healing, I was fortunate to have qualified for a grant for an addictions counseling certification program.
Like many others who suffered the wrath of 2020, I am still recovering from the string of unfortunate events that included …
- readjusting how I work
- family health challenges
- an unexpected and sudden fostering of a traumatized puppy and a cat.
- discovering my abusive ex moved to Florida with my children without permission (Now a court issue)
- working towards completing my addictions counseling certification at UMass Boston
- Finally, having a medical crisis that required surgery.
I share my struggles, my victories and journey with you to keep it real and hopefully the words and inspiration I speak on these pages will inspire someone. I walk this path with you NOT just talks about it.
Why Spiritual Medicine Is Needed NOW More Than Ever
While all these human events occurred like a sequence of hurricanes that pummeled the shores one after another before the shorelines had time to recuperate, I never lost sight of my divine spark within.
Did I question my faith, my purpose, or my life?
YES. Of coarse, I did.
That is called being HUMAN.
However, understanding that my soul – the divine presence within me – has a greater wisdom and knowledge than me to guide me in this current storm was critical. It is the ONE thing that keeps me balanced, centered, focused, healthy, and ON PURPOSE.
All while STILL showing up in this hurricane we all experienced in 2020.
- Guiding others on their spiritual journey.
- Holding a safe container for others to dig deep, heal old wounds/stories, reclaim their power, and stand in their truths.
- Starting my clinical internship for my addictions counseling certification.
This connection to the divine within is a skillset that has systematically been stripped away from us through systems of control like governments, corporations, and formalized religions.
The spirit world can NOT be controlled, monetized or tamed. The spirit world just is. It is BIGGER than the human construct or human consciousness. As history has shown us, these systems of control are threatened by its medicine that is offered, but that is changing NOW.
These powers are losing control NOT by rebellious humans acting stupid and irresponsible, but my the Universe itself.
I am human that still has human experiences regardless of my spiritual development. By February 2021, I was a nervous wreck. Why?
I let my head get in the way temporarily trying to force things to happen while beating my head against the wall. Sound familiar?
So instead, I stopped.
I listened to the whispers of the divine within.
What I heard from the spirit realms was that 2021 was an integration year for me – a pause year – a clearing out year – a rebalancing year.
Any project I want to launch NOW or attempt to launch now will be met with obstacles. I need to focus on clearing out the rest of the “clutter” and build a MORE solid foundation than the last one and come out banging in 2022.
So I sighhhhhhed.
I stopped and paused.
I put together an action plan.
I worked my personal numerology and my astrological signs with what I saw collectively energetically for 2021 and as I forecasted earlier this year and said OK.
So I decided it is time to switch gears. What do I do NOW?
I have been strengthening my systems and foundations.
I have been calling in and seeking out authentic solid sustainable partnerships, while listening to my soul like a GPS to guide me on where to go and which turns to take.
Are you finding yourself in a similar pattern?
6 ACTION Steps To Take NOW
There is sooooo much polarity and division happening here in the USA and globally it is like watching a bunch of parentless children running around aimlessly without guidance, self discipline or moral fortitude.
As we continue to grow and evolve, please BE gentle with yourself AND others.
Many of our fellow humans are stuck in fear and struggling with trusting in spirit or letting go of the egoic mindset. Be aware of this when it creeps in.
1.BE aware that our thoughts may NOT even be our own, but part of the collective consciousness.
2. BE aware that some of what is surfacing is OLD stories and old traumas that were stuck in
the soil we reside
the blood in our veins and electrical circuitry from our genealogy – aka generational trauma
the spirit of our soul from our past karma and past lives
in the mind and bodies of our own past traumas
3. It is important to build a strong relationship with the diving presence within – soul – spirit – in order to have the skillset to discern what is ours, what is NOT, and what is our contribution to it.
If you think you already have it, you do not. Build a stronger one.
4. Remember to
Choose what action to take next.
5. Above all, please
BE the solution the world needs.
As I wrote in my 2021 energy forecast, this is a year for change. It is a year for creating more balance between the human ego material world and the spiritual world.
6. It is imperative we find a way to shed the colonized mindset that has been cultivated and bridge in the necessary spiritual medicine & cultivate a relationship with Spirit once again honoring what the Universe is requiring of us in this time and space.
