The Power of Love

spiral picture quote

Isn’t it amazing when all the signs of life line up just right. Your love emanates and you just are. Trying to get to it outside of yourself makes us crazy. Love is something that you have to embody in order to be it. It’s not something that you can find outside of yourself.

My recent trip to Maui in Hawaii was just that. I was aligned to my core essence. I was what I believe to be an embodiment of divine love. I felt like a living prayer wheel. I have never had an experience that transported me out of my “now” self and plunked me into a new “now” self instantaneously. One that had a vibration turned up so high, that I literally couldn’t be anything else other then love itself.

What’s amazing is what really happened. The veils of perception had an opportunity to be cleaned. I am still who I am. It’s just the belief of who I was has been cleared. The concept of understanding that when you are in your power, you are “Love in Action” and when you give your power away, you are a “Phantom in Action”. What is a phantom? A phantom is the illusion of being someone.  Be it your beliefs or the illusion of being someone else maybe or not even being present. Our egos are definitely living phantoms.

Make a choice today to embody love and be love in action. That is true power.

What are you Grateful to….

As opposed to what are you grateful for?  There is a significant deeper meaning in what we are grateful to.  I am grateful to my family for bringing a profound healing in my life today.  So much love is coming into my well-being of life.  I am turning an incredible corner and I can feel how blissful it is.  EFT has become my best friend.

It was said it would never be easy, but then again, why not?  Happy Thanksgiving…

ENJOY this remarkable song.

Joy Joy Joy!

It's a Perfect day to?

This Full Moon and Blood Moon, Lunar Eclipse AND Mercury retrograde are creating something….. It’s VERY powerful.  If you want to learn more about the importance of the Blood Moon (we will be having 4 of them, and I believe this was the 2nd one of the four, ending the last one September 2015) you can watch Matt Kahn’s video discussing it here.
How do you want it to go?

We are significantly part of the whole.  We get to decide how our life unfolds.  What do you declare today?

I declare Joy, Ease, freedom and bliss.  All is well.

I want to share a little bit of something I began doing a month and a half ago.  It’s called EMDR therapy.  You can read more about it here.

Very simply, the technique supports the nervous system in processing material that was too intense to resolve subsequent to the painful event or events. EMDR significantly reduces the emotional pain and the accompanying body sensations associated with the memory of the trauma. More importantly, EMDR allows the person to change the underlying false beliefs that were instilled with the trauma and replace them with more truthful, helpful beliefs. For example, a small child being abused usually believes deep down that he or she deserved the abuse and this false belief becomes a part of the subconscious. Once there, it will continue to limit that person’s ability to feel good about him or herself and to limit the development of their full potential.

For me, it feels like I am rewriting my story.  I get to rewire my brain in a loving supportive environment.  I have done little “doses” of it over the past month and a half, but today, I did a full 45 min.  It was such a blissful outcome that I really need to share this.  Having someone be present with me and aid me to rewrite my stories I tell myself has been remarkably healing.  I literally felt a matrix in my thought waves reconstructing new words, beliefs, and messages while my body experienced the relaxation of it as I worked through the emotions of it.  Today, I witnessed so much joy I thought I was going to fly away when I left.  It was very blissful.  I don’t always have that experience, but today, I owned it.

It is a perfect day to celebrate.  How about you?  What is it a perfect day for?

Much love and light,

Shakti

The Time Has Come ~

Welcome image

We are all being asked to Awaken to our Heart’s Essence. 

 

Are you listening? 

Are you paying attention? 

Are you fighting it or opening to the mystery of it?

 

Do you see life in black and white?  Are you living in the shadow of perfectionism still?

Awakening to your Heart’s Essence means are you waking up to your purpose?  Are you choosing to be for love or against love?  Are you for giving love?  Or against giving love?  Forgiving yourself?  Forgiving others?

I can not answer any of these for you.  Only you can.  What matters most to you?  Being right?  Being loving?  Being present and showing up?  Listening to your calling.

The time has come.  The time is right now.  Do not let life hold you back.

What choices are you making today?  What is your heart saying?  And are you listening?

Fierce Acceptance

“We attract what we judge until we no longer judge what we attract.”     Matt Kahn

When we become clear about this message, miracles are bound to happen, yes?  Or is this just another obstacle preventing us from moving forward?

For me, this message is so powerful.  It takes any confusion out of the equation.  If I want to attract something different, then I have to behave differently.  Becoming different is not the goal though.  The goal is accepting each moment as it appears.  Within each appearance there is opportunity for change.  Within each moment change happens, drop by drop we become different.  It is such a strange riddle, but it is necessary to understand the meaning of this.

The mirror of life is so profound. We look at what we want to look at and we turn our heads and blame, shame and misunderstand what we don’t want to look at.  When does looking become less painful?  I believe as we clear more and more toxic energy out of our habits and pray into a new paradigm, we will welcome change faster and easier.  As I move through all the healing this year has brought me, my habits are still there, but my new practices definitely keep me more present with what appearances do show up.  I am looking with more confidence and finding that I have the tools to heal what does show up.

June 5th will be the unveiling of  Miracles and More.  A place where becoming yourself is not only honored, but it is celebrated.  Stay tuned….it’s just around the corner!  I have been working tirelessly to get it all up and running.  It is going to be so much fun!!!

 “Becoming Myself”

“It’s never too late to become who you were meant to be.”

 

Isn’t this what started it all?  Isn’t this where I was heading, without even knowing it?  Well, actually it was, “What is self-love?”.   But then it became about “It’s never too late to become who you were meant to be.”  Becoming authentic, doing what someone who loves themselves does, that is learning how to be yourself.  In a world of “What do other people think?”, this is not the path of least resistance.  In a world of idealism, a world of conforming, in a world of what others do and think and believe, sitting in the circle of “being yourself” feels like the lion is going to eat you up.

Fortunately, having asked myself “What would someone who loves themselves do?” for a year is one way to strengthen that inner demon of “What will other’s think.”  In fact, asking that question set me up to actually do between 6,000-10,000 loving acts towards myself in one year.  How many of you can think of 1 or 2 acts of loving things you did today, never mind over a year.

This question instills a habit, a very intense habit.  And this is necessary because to change a habit, you must make changes that allow for the possibility of changes to be made.  One can not be timid to look destiny in the eye.  One must find strength and the only way to find strength is through taking action repetitively.  Repetition is the only way we will make the changes necessary for “Real Change” to be formed in a short amount of time.  If you want to learn a foreign language, then you must practice it.  Self-love for so many of us, IS a foreign language.  Therefore, practicing, is a must.  And how does one do that?

By starting, and then following the path it takes you.  Your path will look different from mine.  Every individual on the planet will have a different path, but it will always lead us to the same place… Wholehearted living.

What is really amazing to me is that it really is never too late to become yourself.  Even if it’s the last breath you take, if you take that breath knowing exactly who you are and how to be yourself….then you are home.  You get the golden prize.  To me that is a miracle to celebrate.

Enjoy my video.  10 min to capture a year doesn’t do it justice, but it gives the highlights and it definitely reveals what is coming next.  So make sure you watch it through to the end.  I don’t want you to miss out on what’s coming around the corner.  June 1st is the day I am going live with it.  Let’s cross fingers it’s ready.  🙂

Watch me here!

Claiming Love

“Because THAT is what someone who loves themself does!”

 

The last month for me has had so many things I wanted to share, but everything is accelerating for me that I have literally not had any time to share!  It has been a bit frustrating, but I am here now.  Currently, I feel as if my life is undergoing a major transformation.  I feel these large invisible hands living outside my home and rearranging everything so my life works the way I am asking for it.

We are currently at the tail end of spring break (my son has 2 weeks in April off) so that has also made my time limited here.

To sum up the last few weeks….

As I walked into some really big purposes that you will find out shortly, I have never felt so complete and deeply purposeful.  AT the same time, my personal life definitely felt like my soul was dying, and then I launched my artist website the day after.  The night of a very emotional morning, we had a visiting Tibetan Doctor (Paltul Rinpoche) and I was in the hot seat for my time with him.  I would not call it a “lecture” but it was.  He reminded me how loving kindness is the most important thing.  He reminded me about patience, tolerance and   having my mind in check when it comes to my anger.  It was not easy to listen to what I already know but have chosen to not practice.  It was really hard to watch the thoughts of shame I was encountering within.   Maya Angela always says, “When you know better, you do better.” and yet, it seems somewhat impossible when I am in it.

A few days later my other friend I support as a Tibetan Doctor was visiting me.  She is very gifted, her name is Dr. Nashalla Nyinda.  She had just finished taking a Tibetan Geomancy refresher class (a fancy kind of Feng Shui that has great power in it) and she spent the week rearranging my house.  First with the bedroom to bring harmony and peaceful sleep.  It was noticeable that night and every night since.  Then the entire downstairs was completely rearranged as it was all not working for me apparently.  The front of the house, the colors, every part of my home had some kind of protection, rearranging, or change.

After she left, I spent a few days painting the kitchen, the laundry room, the bathroom….all a color I never would have chosen.  It’s called Mountain Mist.  It is cooling off all the fire we apparently have in the house.  I feel the groundedness, I feel the peace in it.  Even the curtains I bought are a robin egg blue and has made a difference on grounding the energy for me.

My husband and I entered into couples counseling together last weekend.  The external part of my home is reflecting all the internal changes that have occurred and that are showing how important it is to look at something new.  We have been married 15 years and I am just now learning that he doesn’t think he’s ever been able to meet my needs because he doesn’t exactly know what they are.  I find this fascinating.  Truly.  In investigating it with more and more woman, I am hearing the same message over and over, that men don’t understand what women’s needs are.  Is this true?  I just thought it was a Shakti thing and my husband.  But really, the bottom line is always the same.  Do I matter?  Do you care enough about me to be my witness in life?  Are you willing to connect with me as I walk my path and you walk your path.  There’s so much here to chat about, but I will save it for a separate blog post.

What really fascinates me are the supporters that are showing up in my life right now.  Angela Montano has a program called Rethink Prayer.  She is a living breathing prayer wheel in my opinion.  She is brilliant and has the most tender loving nature.  Her words speak through me in every layer.  My biggest “THING” that I can see that has been getting in my way for self-love is I have lost my “FAITH in LOVE”.  So as I am stepping out more and more on to bigger platforms, I am recognizing that my question of What would someone who loves themselves do, has become “BECAUSE that is what someone who loves them self does!”  And that for me, is claiming love.  I am saying, I am willing to have faith in change.  I am willing to give my fears over to a bigger power and say “I can do this” because that IS what someone who loves them self does.

As I say yes to being “brave and scared” at the same time, as I say yes to “Faith in Love” and as I say yes to “It’s ok for me to be myself”, my life is accelerating and showing up in ways that require me to stay strong, and hold on.  My thoughts of how I handle things are clearly different.

I am embarking in Part 2 of Brene Brown’s e-course of The Gifts of Imperfection and absolutely thrilled to know how far I have come.  I can see as the layers of shame have fallen  away, my ability to accept myself for who I am are expressing more.  I still have extremes going on and I am still quite emotional at times, but this is part of who I am.  I can accept that.    Learning new ways of communicating, learning new tools for cultivating and practicing them are becoming my “normal” way of thinking now.  Such an amazing foundation to share.  I really have many things to share and write, however there is only one brain in my head and the push I am doing to finish a project to share for my one year anniversary is taking much of my time.  I will do my best to post inspiring things for the next few weeks.  🙂  This is an amazing time for me.  Very profound.  I look forward to my one year up date, my offerings I have at that time will be very clear as well.  Or mostly done.  My guides are all telling me it had to be done like “yesterday”….and I just remind them all, I do have small children!  They just smile at me and are patient.

Love, Shakti
