Open To The Universe By Integrating Your 7 Energies

7energies

When you start to strengthen your relationship to Spirit, you start to see the connections in all things. 

The connection between you and Mother Earth…

The connection between you and other humans…

…And the connection WITHIN yourself. 

The seven energies you contain within are discrete, sacred centers, linked to seven different story themes every human experiences throughout your life. These energies are integrated as well as separate, all part of the totality of your life’s story — the way you think, how you make your life choices, and what you encounter within yourself — as well as the conditions of your world as you journey forward. 

While I talk about the energies as separate, they are all part of a single, integrated system, just as we as individuals are separate, yet part of the Collective. 

When you work with these energies, you operate at two levels simultaneously: The individual and the whole. When you strengthen one, you strengthen the entire system. Each is independent and interdependent. 

Looking at each of the energies individually enables you to understand their importance, the related story, and how each impacts the whole. (If this interests you, there’s still time to join my FREE 7 Energies Challenge, going on right now!)

Moving From the Hole into the Whole

holetowholeness
You yourself are the eternal energy which appears as the universe. 
You didn’t come into this world, 
you came out of it like a wave from an ocean.
--Alan Watts


How and when did we lose our intimacy to our beloved Creator, to one another, to all living things but most importantly to ourselves?

How did we evolve by not evolving to forget that we are born out of this earth and therefore all of creation is truly one?

Where do we begin to die, live and be reborn to remember this quest of life we are so fortunate to be part of? 

Perhaps when we look at the word intimacy, this is the first place where we either could use more insight, more respect or maybe some deeper reverence. The word intimacy in the Temple Hayes dictionary which translates into--IN-TO-ME-SEE-- is a simplistic way to identify with our relationship with life. While so many people in the world are longing to grow up, longing to understand life’s meaning, perhaps aching to release addictions, not really wanting to die while they are living, feeling drained and disconnected, there is always going to be common truths no matter what anyone ever tells you--we all long to be loved, valued and respected.

The Meaning of Resurrection Especially in These Times

easter
First you must realize you are asleep, then you wake up, then you die so you may be born. You cannot be born until you die and you cannot die until you wake up.
  -  
Jungian psychology


There are traditions across the world which celebrate Easter and the joy of Christ being risen. Storytelling is one of the most ancient natural medicines we have for the healing of our hearts and our soul. The Easter story is so powerful yet it deepens who we are in our humanity when we allow the story to be personal for ourselves. How can we allow the Christ consciousness to be born within us? 

During these unpredictable and uncertain times we are living in, we are all called to rise up. We have a profound, once in a lifetime moment to seize this window of a universal time out to quiet the noise in our minds and allow a greater connection of God to be experienced in our lives.

Embrace Your Unique Identity In The Sacred Collective: The Third Energy!

unique-identity

There was a time when I was so disconnected from who I was at my core, so out of balance in my third energy, that I had to be spiritually bankrupt before I could finally discover my identity and worthiness. 

For most of my life, and for many reasons I did not understand until much later in life, I was raised to deny my authentic self. As a result I was a chameleon, shifting according to the environment I was in and what I thought those around me expected from me.

The instruction to hide my true identity was hammered into me. My mom always used to tell me, “Never talk about the family. Never talk about yourself.” I had to look and behave a certain way to fit into her idea of what was acceptable— she even picked my clothes! I wasn’t allowed to wear blue jeans — and this was the 70s when EVERYONE was wearing jeans. And my straight hair, well she made me curl it before I left the house to look more like her, conservative and not reflective of my taste or nature. You can imagine how her attempts to make me fit in actually made me stand out like a pigeon in a yard of peacocks.

Inherited Beliefs Can Take Control of Your Life

At the time, I didn’t understand that my mother was dealing with her own self-identity issues and she was doing her best to protect me. She was trying to keep me safe in the only way she knew how.

Embodying Light

IMG_2903-1200x900

“For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it,
if only we’re brave enough to be it.”
—Amanda Gorman

With these words, in her inaugural poem “The Hill We Climb,” Amanda Gorman opened the door wide so that the light could shine in, in all its radiance and power. Her words echoed out from the podium around the world and across the centuries. Standing invisible beside her were immigrants and enslaved people, civil rights activists and suffragists, Parkland students and pacifists, poets and day laborers. All those who have envisioned a freer, more compassionate world and lived and died for it were there in spirit to witness a shift in consciousness becoming visible at last.

The Law of Unity

green-and-growing-picture-id537458526

The LAW OF UNITY is a foundational principle in my life.

I enjoy discovering the obvious. Personal experience has always had the most meaning for me.

Historically there is a belief it is possible to attain oneness or transcend material experience.

Awareness of the Unity of all creation is this same oneness.

Everything is Oneness. We cannot be out of oneness. We cannot journey to oneness if that is where we already are.

Distinctions can be made in basic dictionary definitions of Oneness and Unity.

ONENESS - the fact of being one single thing.

UNITY - a whole or totality as combining all its parts into one.

When one catches a glimpse of duality in the many forms of the manifest world as Unity in wholeness, duality reveals the beauty of Oneness in Everything.

The Law of Unity was originally called The Law of Alchemy.

EVERYTHING IS SACRED, NOTHING IS SPECIAL.

Caretakers of Consciousness

IMG_2536-1200x900

We have a responsibility, those of us born on Earth at this key transitional moment in the planet’s history. A powerful and sacred responsibility. And that is to hold the dream of a harmonious world and a loving human species in our hearts at all times and to act accordingly: with love, with kindness. To keep our minds clear of fearful thought forms and influences, which are becoming more and more prevalent and strident now. Conspiracy theories of all kinds are beginning to dominate social media, and hatred of “other” is growing. Divisiveness is encroaching on compassion in the human experience. When we separate off into smaller and smaller groups, suspicious of one another, we are falling further and further away from our purpose in being here.

Will You Choose Relationship with the Divine? - It is the simple path

Will You Choose Relationship with the Divine? - It is the simple path Will You Choose Relationship with the Divine? - It is the simple path

We all have our own term for that which is First Cause, Universal Intelligence, Eternal Peace, Perfect Joy, Love.

But words can only go so far, and no matter what term we use to express this deep, heartfelt knowing, the term itself remains beautiful in its limitation.

This is because we, as part of the Divine, are forever and eternally extending the Divine through our unique, blessed, ever-expanding Communication of Love.

Is there anything else you’d rather feel?

Is there any other way you’d rather be?

We have a choice.

Telling A New Story – Oracle Of The 7 Energies

watching-sunrise-throught-a-lens-ball-riviera-romagnola-picture-id980949016 Telling A New Story – Oracle Of The 7 Energies

Throughout recorded history — and long before — humankind has recognized the sacred energy that courses through each and every living thing. Many cultures and philosophies recognize the seven sacred energies of life, each with a separate center and a separate wisdom of their own. They represent seven themes that we experience through the stories about life we tell ourselves, whether we’re aware of it or not. 

When you do become aware of these energies and these stories, you can activate and balance them, you widen your potential by moving into wholeness. 

Doing this kind of energy work is a way to look at the totality of your life’s stories — the way you think, how you make choices, and what you encounter within yourself — as well as the conditions of your world as you journey forward. It’s so, so important that I created my brand-new deck, Oracle of the 7 Energies, around this concept!

While the seven energy centers work together synergistically, it’s also critical to understand and look at them individually as well. That’s why I want to take you through each of the energies so you can begin to understand their importance, the related story, and where you may need to put some attention (and intention!).

A Courageous Heart: Connected or Disconnected

human-and-space-the-concept-of-the-composition-of-progress-science-picture-id936885928 A Courageous Heart: Connected or Disconnected

How important is our purview?

How does it emerge?

How does it affect our relationship to ourselves, nature, the world, the Cosmos even the Divine?

 

Throughout centuries we have personally and collectively developed how we see things, what our current lens is, defined and named ourselves and others by it and evolved in certain directions within it. Current worldviews can emerge from scientific perspectives as well as family, community and personal experiences, ancestral inheritance etc appearing at best incomplete and at times inaccurate, unnatural.

As we begin to understand the true nature of our existence, who we are, what we innately carry within our DNA codes and the fundamental patterns of the Universe, we begin another journey of evolution that brings all into alignment, coherency, connectivity and presence, an opportunity to choose harmony, synchronicity, peace, internal power from the innate genius that resides within the deepest part of us.

The One Habit that Changes Everything

close-up-peaceful-woman-sitting-in-lotus-pose-and-meditating-picture-id114369663_20200706-140253_1 The One Habit that Changes Everything

In this moment, an energy of CHANGE is rising on our planet. We are being called to look at ourselves and the world at large, and ask not only which overt sentiments and societal structures or institutions need to change, but also to look clearly at our own lives and ask:

What is it that’s driving me in a habitual, unconscious kind of way?

Our habits are patterns of energy that run through our system and affect our lives, whether we are aware of them or not. In looking at our lives, we all have certain habits we would like to actively or consciously change. We can also see the outcome of existing habits that have subconsciously collected over time.

We recognize both these manifestations of habits in our lives. Sometimes they’re easy to change… and sometimes not.

Three Pelicans Circling

3pelicansflying Three Pelicans Circling

Last week, on my morning walk, three brown pelicans flew overhead, high in the sky, as I tilted my head up to watch them. Slowly they turned in perfect unison and began to circle above me, directly above me. They circled three times, large sweeping circles of which I was the epicenter below them. Then they turned back the way they had originally come and flew off into the distance. As I watched them leave, my spirits uplifted by their brief aerial presence, I thought, “Why did they fly here, circle three times, and then return? Was my presence somehow connected to theirs?”

We Are Loving Awareness

RamDassNoAttribution01-730x400 We Are Loving Awareness
“Now just imagine that you, as spirit or awareness, have contained yourself in an incarnation, or contained it in a conceptual model of who you are and in a storyline. And then at some point, you dissolve out of that, you break out of that, and there is this incredible release quality.” – Ram Dass 


There is joyousness. Our beloved Baba has left his body, and he is no longer in pain. He has been released from this storyline.  

There is sadness. We no longer get the warm embrace of his loving awareness in the human form. The feeling I got when our eyes locked was that of pure liquid love. It was too much for me most of the time, I almost always wound up looking away before he did. But I will miss it dearly. I will miss him dearly.

When I heard the news last night, I immediately had to sit and meditate. As I settled into my first round of “Ram, Ram, Ram,” I felt tears streaking down my face. A thought popped right up into my head, “Well, I didn’t think I’d be this sad.” I thought I was ready for this; I’m sure many of us thought we were.

Do You Have a Psychically Sensitive Child?

creativechild Do You Have a Psychically Sensitive Child?

I’ve become fascinated by the ever-increasing number of children who are displaying amazing psychic abilities. I’ve noticed over the past few years how many more questions I’m getting at my lectures, during my radio show and on my Facebook page about psychically sensitive children.

Young intuitive children see the world and people as they truly are. They show their sensitivity in such simple ways. For example, if your child encounters someone new and it appears as though they don’t like that person, then I’d suggest that first and foremost, you take a moment to listen to your child.

Your child is probably able to see clairvoyantly, or they’re feeling the colors emanating from the person’s aura. They could also be picking up the energy of the person, and they interpret it as a something they’re not comfortable with. The important thing is that you’re totally supportive and you talk to your child about what they’re feeling.

How can these abilities or spiritual gifts be understood and developed? Rather than look to your child for answers, we must first look within at our attitudes, thoughts, and feelings. Parents and teachers have to realize that being intuitive or psychic is normal. There are too many misconceptions.

You Are Stronger Than You Think

natural-balance-at-san-francisco-picture-id533260207 You Are Stronger Than You Think

Do you ever feel insecure or unsure of yourself? Have you ever hesitated to share in a discussion even though you knew the answer? Have you lacked confidence in moments when you knew you could make a difference in the lives of people around you, yet you remain silent? You feel like you know you could say something that would turn someone’s life around, and yet it doesn’t come out of your mouth?

If that is happening with you, there’s a reason.

In these moments of hesitation or withholding, your energy is dispersed out of your deep, core wisdom, and instead, you are most-likely in your head and over-thinking things. Overthinking pulls you out of your core power and strength, and can result in feeling insecure, insufficient, and create a tendency to compare yourself to everything around you.

Messages That Are Heaven Scent!

applepie Messages That Are Heaven Scent!

There are many different types of symbols and messages that those in Spirit can send us. One of the more common ways our loved ones can communicate with us is through our sense of smell. Scents have an amazing power to vividly bring back memories that we may have long forgotten. When we smell a freshly baked apple pie, it may bring up loving memories of a grandmother, or the smell of the ocean could conjure up memories of happy days spent on your dad’s boat.

Stop and think for a minute right now what scents bring back special memories for you. Mine would have to be the aroma of my mom’s Italian cooking, which brings back memories of Mom giving us samples as she cooked.

All too often, these signs are quite subtle. For example, if your dad used to smoke cigars in his lifetime and one day for no reason, you smell cigar smoke, don’t be alarmed. Obviously, check that there’s no one in the house actually smoking a cigar. If not, then it might be your dad’s way of saying, “I just wanted to let you know that I’m here with you.”

Are Human Beings the Ultimate Creator?

creators Are Human Beings the Ultimate Creator?

It’s rare to find someone with an optimistic view of humanity’s future. The prevailing mood globally is dark, and yet David Deutsch, a far-seeing British physicist, argues that humans are responsible for everything new—we are the ultimate creators in the cosmos.

I was excited to view his April 2019 TED talk headlined “After billions of years of monotony, the universe is waking up” By monotony Deutsch means the mechanistic processes that have been in place ever since stars and galaxies began to form, and by waking up, he means us. We are a unique source of creative novelty in the universe, so far as we know.

To support this very original idea, Deutsch points out that humans have told themselves a story for centuries that is mistaken. We have seen ourselves caught in the middle of struggle between cosmic good and evil, which was expressed in religious terms for a long time but has been updated by science into the struggle between order (the good side of the war) and chaos (the destructive side of the war, and therefore bad).

How to Change Human Nature

everyone-has-a-dark-and-a-bright-side-picture-id1129002589 How to Change Human Nature

Everyone is good at avoiding the elephant in the room, which refers to something everyone is aware of but cannot bring themselves to discuss. In some ways the ultimate elephant in the room is human nature. We all exhibit human nature, but we rarely discuss it for a simple reason: no one knows what to do with it.

Lions suffer no inner conflict when they prey upon the weak, but we do, or should. Mating season doesn’t send dolphins into an emotional tailspin, but human sexuality is fraught with psychological implications, and for some people these are unresolved for a lifetime. The essential problem, however, is that human nature is torn between opposites. We see ourselves as good and bad together, rational and irrational, peaceful and violent.

The divided self is a central topic in a new book I’ve written titled Metahuman: Unleashing Your Infinite Potential. In it I counter the general helplessness that people feel about human nature. It’s a helplessness born of being human, quite literally. Just to exist as a human being involves an inheritance of opposites. As children we learn to curb the dark side of these opposites, but psychology hasn’t gotten much beyond Freud’s sad conclusion that civilization barely keeps a lid on our innate tendency to violence, sexual jealousy, hatred of others, and similar inherited woes.

A Breath Exercise for Suffering and Joy

woman-in-water-picture-id540717970 A Breath Exercise for Suffering and Joy

In the 11th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna shows Arjuna all the forms of the Universe, turning back into the pure form from which they were manifested.

The forms of the Universe: Breathe them in. Take in the baby’s crying, the sound of traffic, it’s all energy, it’s all shakti in form. As you draw it into your being, let the forms go, let your concepts about it all go, turn it back into pure shakti. Sit straight, draw it all into your chest.

All of your thoughts now, your memories, think of the political world, a breath for that.

See all the candidates, all of the international intrigue, all of the genuine seeking for peace, a breath for that.

See it all; the play, the dance, the forms, the mother, the mother at play, all aspects of the mother. Draw it back into its pure form within you, Mother shakti. Draw it into your heart.
