a total revolution

12039478_996496027090911_471997915602329277_n.jpg“Women get more beautiful as they grow older. Not less.
Female youth is only prized in modern culture because it doesn’t represent as much of a threat spiritually to anyone who is frightened of divine feminine power.
As women grow and mature, they call in stronger forces of sacred feminine wisdom. They vibrate with the creative power of their stories.
They are more of a force to be reckoned with.
They see more, know more, feel more. They put up with a lot less bullshit.
When women are trained into thinking there is something fundamentally wrong with getting older, and are coerced into spending money, energy and power investing in ‘slowing the signs of ageing’, an enormous vault of divine love is lost.

Just think what would happen if all the women in the world started loving themselves even more with every year that passed.
Perhaps a total revolution would occur.” – @sophiebashfordintuitive

Life is getting pretty busy these days with the holistic health training’s I’m doing. And I don’t really plan on being a very active Arbonne Independent Consultant. In fact I took down most of what I posted about Arbonne products the last couple weeks because I just don’t have the time to put into being active with my business. It had been recommended to me that I add it to my blog. But after I did I realized the truth of the matter. Right now my business is sustaining itself just from word of mouth and my personal testimonials,  and that suits me just fine. As hard as I try I don’t have that MLM spirit in me lol.  But that being said I will always let people know I use the products and will help you find what’s right for you whether it be skincare, or a 30 day plan to change your nutrition habits, a new makeup makeover, or simply showing the best baby skin care you can get.

But in being honest with myself, it’s not the business direction I’m headed into. Eventually I want everything to mesh together as a whole holistic living package. I’m learning about essential oils and am super excited with how crystals and essential oils level up a Reiki session to another level. And in the end its not leaving me time to promote Arbonne the way I should as a consultant. For now I’m still an Independent Arbonne Consultant, and I will ALWAYS use the RE9 skin and body care lines, much of the cosmetics line and do often use items from the nutritional line. So if you need anything or are interested in what Arbonne has to offer as a company please just drop me a line or stop by the website!

I’m taking my Crystal Healers exam tomorrow and will be adding that certification to my holistic resume. I’m super excited about that! And I’m delving into essential oils and maybe aromatherapy next! In a couple months I will be taking level 2 attunements and practicals for Holy Fire Reiki and Archangel Light Reiki. And I will be offering my Reiki services through The Spiritual Gift Shoppe’s Reiki Clinics to gain confidence in my practice. Not too distant plans are to rent out part of the shoppe as a start up for my own business. And late summer I plan to retake a Usui Reiki level one class with a new teacher here in another part of New Jersey. I’m not required to in order to be part of their Reiki Clinics, but I feel spiritually urged to work with a new teach from square one. Things are starting to pick up momentum as far as this new path I’m on and it’s becoming a dream come true for me.

Loki’s medicine has been knocked down to one pill a day instead of two. I think his body is trying to adjust. But for the most part he is doing wayyyyyyy better than he was. He will never fully heal. It’s just something he’s always had issues with. But the treatment and diet change has made a world of difference and I know it’s made his life happier and longer. He’s not happy being the one cat in a one pet household now. But we aren’t sure how much borrowed time he’s on and we’d rather just focus on him for now.

I had a crazy dream the night before last that I was given a dog when my hubby was at work and I was trying to keep the dog hidden from him so he wouldn’t make me give the dog back lol.  In the dream I bonded with the dog instantly and felt my heart would shatter if he found out and I couldn’t keep him. I actually woke up so sad and ready to cry until I realized I was dreaming lol. Yes, I want a dog, and yeah my child mind wants it now. Then the adult brain kicks in and stops everything. *Sigh*

Meanwhile the apartment is settling down from all the negative energy from Tinkas cancer. We did a whole apartment clean and sweep thing to try and get the icky feeling out and good healing energy for Loki back in. The energy feels more stable in here now.

Sorry the blog and my posts have been very random and in a state of friction with all the changes. I feel that the dust is starting to settle here too. Hope everyone’s having an awesome week and has some fun weekend plans to look forward to!

You are magic in never ending motion

82423.jpg

Do not be steadfast
In your clinging
To the woman
You have become
Celebrate her
Honour her
Adore her
Sit with her
For only as long
As her wings
Do not smother you
Into her lap of comfort
The web of the familiar
Designed
To foster
A kind of attachment
That persuades you
Into believing
You have arrived
But in truth
Only renders
Your experience
Of you
To fifty shades
Of more
Of the same
For you
Are an
Infinite being
Always in motion
Heeding the call
To expand
Breath by breath
Into the adventure
Of uncovering
The unending
Vastness
Of you.

This is a beautiful deck! They are the Mystical Shaman Oracle Cards.

18_the-earthkeeper

MY CARD
THE EARTHKEEPER

THE ESSENCE:
Just as you’re involved in co-creating your world, you are also responsible for its well-being. The Earthkeepers are dedicated to the stewardship of the Earth and all life. They choose to hold the sacred dream of a planet where all beings live in peace and where the rivers and the air are clean. Remember that everything you do has an impact for seven generations.

THE INVITATION:
You have outgrown your small dream of success and achievement and are ready to dream big, with possibilities beyond your wildest expectations. Take on the mantle of the Earthkeeper, and reach out to a friend in need whom you may not have been in touch with for some time. Take care of your pets, and feed the strays that come by. Clean up your yard, as this is a reflection of your relationship to the Earth. Grow the sacred dream, and your personal life will flourish. Remember, it’s not about “me” any longer.

THE MEDICINE:
As you care for your body, you show your care for Mother Earth, so begin with the stewardship of your health. What are you putting in your mouth? Are you feeding on foods and thoughts that are not good for you? Start doing what you know will be good for you today.

1_the-ancient-ones

WHAT ELSE
DO I NEED TO KNOW
THE ANCIENT ONES

THE ESSENCE:
The Ancient Ones are the shamans of old who defeated death and escaped from the tyranny of time. The Ancient Ones once walked the earth like us, in flesh and bone. Now they reside in infinity and can counsel us after we say yes to our calling. They are available to help us attain our full realization.

THE INVITATION:
The Ancient Ones are inviting you to reach to the future to help birth a new destiny for the Earth. Go ahead; find out who you are becoming 10,000 years from now. If you accept the invitation, great power and blessings will come your way and allow you to craft a new destiny for yourself. Do not hesitate to bite off more than you can chew, because you have unlimited spiritual resources available right now.

THE MEDICINE:
The Ancient Ones beseech you to examine your attitudes and actions, and be sure that they are of the highest integrity. Not forgiving an ancestor (or yourself) is keeping you from the freedom you seek. Remember this is no longer your karma. You can break the chains that once bound you to the family drama and be free of your generational curses. Forgive the ones you need to release. Honor your biological ancestors by lighting a candle to them tonight.

64_the-witness

WHERE IS THIS GOING
THE WITNESS

THE ESSENCE:
The witness observes without engaging in any action. By cultivating inner stillness, we are able to assess any situation from a higher perspective and make better decisions. When we can be present for someone else’s difficulties with stillness, then we are able to truly hear them and give better advice. Sometimes we can be so still that we are a mirror for the other. Then, through our presence, they receive their own answers.

THE INVITATION:
The witness that has been by your side all along is now ready to become your ally. You thought you were the doer, but today you discover that things happen when you get out of the way. Witness creation unfolding before you. Change reality by finding stillness and letting your true intent reveal itself.

THE MEDICINE:
Acknowledge your preconceptions, ideas, and feelings about the situation you are in, but resist the urge to change any of it. Do not fall back into your controlling patterns. Instead, take a few breaths, and connect with the joy of not having to perform. Hold space for the world to keep spinning on its own.

Shadow

Shadow

Do not fear your shadow.
It is there you hide your truth
From you.
Do not fear the darkness
It is there you find strength,
Courage to fight
The weight of its truth.

Do not fear sharing this weight.
Connection, like thread,
Sews up your wounds
That cut to the marrow
To be seen
In this truth
Heals not only you

Hold space for your own
Wounded heart
Lift it up to the heavens and wail
That they gave such a heart
As this
That feels so deep
Into inky depths
It threatens
To pull you down
Down
And further still
Into your pain

 

Do not fear your pain
Welcome it home
(Rejecting it fragments your truth)
And feel

Your heart has this strength
For though it was made but tiny flesh
Its fibers weave tapestry
Over scars
A shimmering armor
Not calloused
But shining ready
With light to balance this dark

 

We are not singular beings.
We dance between
light and dark both
When in the depths of despair
It is this shining, armored heart that
Leads us back to peace
Darkness is the terrain
Love is the compass
Light is the wayshower
To the truth of you

 

Oh, that you
knew the strength
Of your own
Heart.
Do not fear your shadow
Show it what it is to dance
With a being of light—
That being is you.

My Neighbor 🥜

Right outside my office window lives 2 tiny squirrels. They some times hang out on our balcony. And I’ve even caught the little ones staring in at me. Today this one spent quite some time eating, grooming and napping in my line of sight. I sure hope these two get enough food stored. We may not have super bad winters here, but these two are skinny. They are super cute though and I tend to get distracted from work to watch them play and run up and down the trees

Indigenous Peoples Day

22279395_1462782780424950_1476396424480421834_n.jpg

Today, this year, Indigenous Peoples Day falls on what is still in many places in our country, Columbus Day. A sad part of a country trying to maintain and remember history is also to ignore painful parts of history that as we evolve realize were not really the glorious moments they were considered as when they were actually happening.

This country, my America was not “discovered” as our history too kindly speaks. This beautiful land was already the home of another race and culture. Columbus himself was a cruel man. And when history is taught it should no longer be taught with Christopher Columbus as a hero of the modern world. Yes, the history must be learned but not with him as a discoverer and hero in the narrative of the story. 

I don’t celebrate “Columbus Day”, I haven’t in a very very longtime. Not until as an adult I learned both sides of the story did I realize good old Chris was no one to admire or celebrate, nor should the founding of the Americas be a happy celebration. History, our history is riddled with oppression and violence. And I fear history is more prone to repeat itself the more we glamorize and memorialize history in only the way we wish it would have happened instead of the truth. 

It’s way past time that just like with news media, we need to demand that history be retold like it actually was. No added rhetoric, no admonished glory to the side we stand on. But just plain facts, it will tell a story of truth if we face facts instead of just believing whatever it is we want to believe to make ourselves feel good.  Then and only then will we as a country maybe not keep repeating the same historical tragedies.
