Unity WDP Sept 13, 2018

Annual World Day of Prayer

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Rev. Aliza Bloom Robinson and the Center for Divine Awakening are joining forces with the Unity Worldwide organization and the world for a day of conscious prayer. This is the 25th consecutive year of the annual World Day of Prayer.

The Theme this year is Courage to Heal.  

Affirmation, “I am a healing presence.”

What is healing to you? The root of the original word heal is Wholeness. You are already whole and in the realization of this spiritual truth in consciousness is your path to the outer manifestation.  Whether your need or desire is for physical, emotional, mental, financial, relational healing, it is ALL Possible.

 

Realize that “With God, all things are possible.”

Realize that “You are already perfect, whole and complete in Spirit.”

Realize that as you come into the realization in Spirit, it will manifest in the physical.

Realize “You are whole.”

Realize for yourself, “I am whole.”

Realize, ‘I am a healing presence.”

Relax into a new truth, a greater truth, one that may have very little to do with your factual reality, but is TRUE none-the-less in Spirit.

Add your name Here:

The Guiding Prayer:

Aligning my mind and heart with the mind and heart of God, I center myself in Pure Being. In a state of spiritual realization, I remember I can never be broken, limited, or unworthy. Courageously, I rise into my true spiritual nature in this moment of healing. I heal the whole of me as I accept that I am brave. I am bright. I am beautiful.

As I heal in body, mind, and spirit, I support healing in my family, my community, the earth, and the world. Centered in Pure Being, I am a healing presence.

Joining with you in aligning to the Truth of who you are!

Contemplating Freedom –

Today is Canada Day and in a few days we in the United States celebrate our Independence Day.

 

 

 

As we head into this week, I wonder about Freedom and what that really means. I am quite free, but right now in our country there are many who are not experiencing freedom; but rather oppression and fear; who are experiencing discrimination and unjust situations that trigger fear and resistance.

The introduction to our Declaration of Independence contains the following words:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

These unalienable Rights have been given to ALL human beings by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect.

I stand for these basic human rights! Now, while I do realize that when it was written, it was meant for all white men, of a certain economic status living in the soon to be United States; to the exclusion of people of color, natives and women; the words are there for ALL PEOPLE!

 

So the question comes:

Who do we stand for? Who do we stand with?

What is our basic moral obligation to serve humanity? We are not in this alone. We are the people; for the people. It is time to be involved.

All people means; no matter what color your skin; what your religious beliefs; who you worship; who you love; what your economic status is. So given this what can I do?

I can pray certainly. I can pray for our world and all people. I can hold our world and all people in love and I can look within my own consciousness to find the places that are scared; or prejudice; or discriminatory.

When I see them; and they are there for most of us, even still; take notice. Look, see, tell the truth and then take authentic action. What action to take? Get to know someone outside your own comfort zone; get to know someone who’s beliefs or lifestyle makes you uncomfortable. Take notice and open your heart; open your mind and then open your arms. Join a march, join a group, open your doors to those who are unlike you.

I’ve spent my life looking for and living in mostly a world of like-minded people. It is a brilliant thing to do and even those my like-minded communities are like-minded, I have to consider the question: Is our like-mindedness closing us to others? Where does the invisible boundary lie?

Certainly it is easier to be with like-minded folks, either in spiritual beliefs or other ways. Certainly there is a familiarity; a comfort; a connection made; but I ask you to consider; does it keep you separate?

You don’t have to leave your friends or like-minded groups, but open yourself to new and different possibilities. Find the mutual connections – do you breathe the same air? Do you live in the same parts of the country.

Begin to break out of the habits that you have; the habits that create the box you live in; to explore outside your comfort zones. Realize you are part of a race called HUMAN; and our collective religion is KINDNESS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of the people I know are looking for more comfort; for more security; for more like-minded. Me, today, I’m looking to be stretched beyond my comfort zone; to be stretched in my beliefs and my boxes.

Why?

For the greater humanity. To break out of the habit of being me and the status quo with which I live, inside my own world. To experience a greater world, to care more; to develop a deeper compassion for things I don’t know; like poverty, disease; judgment.

Why?

To become a better human being, to activate my Essence in becoming more of who I am; and to see others in who the are becoming.

This country was founded on and for freedom. Where are the places we are not free; in our minds and hearts as well? Reach out and be. Reach out and Be the one I’m waiting for. Take a stand for humanity. For a World Awakening.

It is for this reason that I wrote my latest book: Paradox of Awakening – Finding Peace in a World of Chaos.

Will you join me?

Post a comment, send me an email, tell me You are For Humanity!

Reflections… on the lake and in life.

The reflection on the water was pure. It was pristine. The trees were as vivid in the

 

reflection as they were in life.

It was early morning and the sun was bright; the water smooth as silk; crystal clear and like glass.

I was on the kayak, about to meet the neighbor “ladies of the cove” for our regularly scheduled kayak adventure.

The air was warm, but not too warm. The sun was early, but was going to be hot in a few hours. The birds were singing – too many to recognize, the choir of early morning, let’s get the day going melodies.

 

Enjoy this short video I recorded from the kayak!

The reflections on the water were a perfect representation of the land above. The trees, the homes, the sky even. When the outer water is still, it is easy to recognize the images as perfect reflection.

When the water is rough, however, it can be harder to see. So why does that matter?

In life, as in our world; what we see in the outer world is a perfect reflection of what is going on in the inner world.

When the outer reflection is pure and pristine, like it is on the lake when the sun is right and the water smooth, that indicates that the inner life is also pure and smooth. That there is a connection to a greater wisdom; a greater love and all is well.

However, if your outer reflection is bumpy, rough or inconsistent, there may be a few reasons.

Reason #1 – your inner world might be a bit chaotic. You may be worrying or fretting over something. You might think it is because of the outer that you are fretting, but really, when you get honest and clear, you still have choice over your thoughts.

HINT – I remember a time when my mother was in the hospital, with a brain thing; – my waters were very chaotic. I held myself together for my father, but when I went home at night, I crashed. I could not find my center nor breathe through the emotional storm I was living. So, I reached out and called my colleagues and support system. The were able to see the calm, at the end of the storm and carry me through it.

You may remember an outer life challenge that you sailed through. Every outer life challenge does not have to be a storm. When you are centered, anchored and in a place of connection and peace, it is possible to walk through great challenges with a fair amount of ease.

Reason #2 – the surface of your inner world might be experiencing a storm. The winds of fear might be blowing, the winds of change; there might be rain or clouds. When there is an outer storm, it does not always represent directly the inner world. Contrary to Reason #1 – Paradoxical, actually – just because there is a storm doesn’t mean there is anything wrong.

HINT – If you want to know more about Paradox, check out my new book, Paradox of Awakening.

In keeping with our lake analogy – sometimes it is simply good to sit back and watch a thunderstorm roll through. It often can clear the air; refresh the atmosphere and can be fun to watch and listen too – especially from the dry comfort of your sun room.

Reason #3 – You may be in a growth spurt. We are ever evolving beings and with growth, comes release and surrender. It has to happen to make room for the new. When there is resistance to letting go; the waters can become rough again.

HINT –  With growth comes chaos – it has to be. Hold on, let go and get support! I’m happy to support your awakening growth! Schedule a complimentary call here. 

So, in keeping this as a part of the #SpiritualSnippets series, I’ll end now with a question:

When and what was a time in your life that the reflection you saw was an indicator for change; and how did you recognize it?

Life’s Lessons from a Surf Boarder

Surfing is hard work.

And it takes a lot of that work getting far enough out into the ocean to enjoy the surfing.

Seems a bit like life to me.

No, I wasn’t actually on the surf board as I received these lessons – I was watching!

Recently I was blessed by spending time at Turtle Bay Resort, in Oahu, Hawaii. It was a beautiful resort that is positioned at the end of a point. On the one side there is a quiet beach with not too many waves; perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Just on the other side, however is the perfect surfing area. The waves were big, the water beautiful and the scenery exquisite.

As we’ve already determined, I’m not a surfer, but I did enjoy watching!

 

Here’s my initial thoughts:

 

And similar thoughts expounded upon…

One day as I was watching one particular gal, I came across these realizations. She was working really hard to get out beyond the smaller waves in order to catch the big one.

At first she was paddling along and with each wave, she gently rode the crest and came out a bit further along. It looked easy and enjoyable.

Then a wave came that she wasn’t able to ride across; instead she crashed through it, coming out the other side, sitting up and wiping her face! She looked beat up and like she had to catch her breath. Yet she kept going.

After a few more crashing through the crest, on the next one, she did something I’d not seen before. She saw it coming, grabbed her board with two hands, took a big breath and rolled over onto her back with the surfboard on top of her. It was fascinating to watch. She came through that wave, rolled over and began paddling again.

Interesting, she had found an easier way through the storm of the wave cresting. Then she did something else. She saw another, perhaps bigger wave coming and this time she took a breath, grabbed onto her board and dove down deep below the wave. Again, she came out unscathed.

It was at this point that I began my metaphysical musings.

Surfing is a bit like life. Here is the translation.

  1. Like surfing, we chose to come to this life. We knew it would be some work, but we also knew that the life experiences would be worth it! That sometimes the greatest joys would come after the greatest challenges.
  2. Sometime, like a wave can hit a surfer without warning – life can give us waves, and bumps and crashes too. It’s all part of it – there is nothing wrong; nor did you do anything wrong to deserve it.
  3. Rolling over onto your back makes the hit easier to get through. I translate this to taking a rest; doing what you need to do to get through the day when the days are tough.
  4. Diving Deep – This is one of my most popular sayings, “Drop beneath…”. Drop below the mind and into the body; drop below the chaos to find the peace or ease or at least relief.
  5. Keep going. Do not give up. Keep going and you will get to the other side of the waves; you will get to where you can turn around and ride the wave of your lifetime!
  6. If you crash, simply get back up on that board called life and go again. Sure, take a breather, notice what you notice and try to do better.
  7. And most of all – Enjoy the Ride! Enjoy the ride out to catch the waves; enjoy the ride back in. Enjoy all that life has to offer you in any given day.

If life has been a little tough for you recently; take a breath – get the support you need; rest when you need to and keep going!  This too will pass and another fabulous wave will be right behind you – ready to sail you to the life of your dreams.

If you’d like support – please don’t hesitate to schedule a “Get to Know you Chat” – an opportunity for you to share what’s going on, I’ll offer some suggestions and then if appropriate I can share some possible pathways for you!

 

Here’s to Surfing through life – the bigger the waves, the better the ride!

Burning Bowl White Stone Ceremony

It’s Calendar Turn Over Time again.

The perfect time to:

  • Finally release the burden of family guilt so you can stop beating yourself up
  • Heal your heart, so you can start the new year with love
  • Clear the energetic space of the past so you can begin fresh and aligned

There is magic and mystery surrounding the year end and beginning of the new. There is a time and space to breathe, to rest and reflect. In this interactive Ceremony you will be guided through a reflective and healing process and led to a receptive place to receive your new intention or white stone for the year.  A visioning process will complete the evening Ceremony.

 

On Sunday, January 7, 2018

6 pm PT – 7 pm MT – 8 pm CT – 9 pm ET

Join the Center for Divine Awakening  for the annual

LIVE in Mesa, Az and LIVESTREAMED from the comfort of Your Home!

 

Burning Bowl and White Stone Ceremony

The Burning Bowl –  Clear out the closets of your mind and make room for the life your soul desires.  Open your imagination and heart to the blessings God is offering you.  This is our traditional ritual of releasing to the burning bowl those things that no longer serve us

 

White Stone – We receive our intentions (similar to resolutions) for the new year.  Rather than focusing on what we will do, we focus on who we are called to be in order to birth the emerging vision of our highest essence.  During the service, we connect with our divine essence—whatever we call God, as we are invited to ask for guidance on what our word or words will be for the upcoming year.  These words will represent our highest intention and may be in the form of a new name that will represent this emerging spiritual identity that will guide us through the new year as our high intentions unfold.  That name is then written upon the white stone that we keep throughout the year as a reminder of our intention.

 

Ceremony – The power of ceremony and ritual reach deep into our hearts and souls, tapping into a place that knows mystery, magic and miracles. Through ritual we bypass the logical mind and embrace an inner knowing, a soul revelation.

Activated… again.

Refreshed, Renewed and Re-Awakened.

 

Standing at the base of the Kachina Woman in Sedona, AZ, I was activated at a cellular level. My arms and head were vibrating, tears were streaming down my face and I was laughing all at one.

This woman, this vortex of the divine feminine was speaking to me once again. It had been years since I stood in this very place, and I remembered it anew.

We had been four days in Sedona and the Kachina Woman vortex was where I knew I needed to be. We finally got there on our way out of town on the last day. A few days earlier the Madonna at the Chapel of the Holy Cross jumped off the wall and into my heart.

We had been to each of the four vortexes and the Stupa, each place had it’s own energy, frequency and vibration; each one activating me in different ways.

At the Airport Mesa, which is a masculine energy vortex, I was activated, pushed even. While it was beautiful and the energies were strong, I’m not drawn to return there.

At Bell Rock, I felt a spaciousness, a Oneness with all that Is. The energy while still activational, for me, was quiet and soft. My heart softened, my body relaxed and I experienced a quiet in my soul that was refreshing and renewing.

Cathedral Rock was a similar, I wanted to sit and be still rather than push on up the trail. We were here at dusk and it was delightful.

But the Kachina Woman – she rocked my soul. She called to me and I answered. In me was reawakened a vitality in being all I’m here to be. Reawakened in me, was my desire and need, really for magic, mystery and miracles. I’ve been playing with returning to my Goddess work, returning to my lineage of being a High Priestess in the Magdalene Mysteries. Its been there for a number of months, but Kachina Woman brought it all together.

Kachina Woman stands for the expression of all that is feminine within me. Not opposed to the masculine, but empowered in and with. She is the expression of my Divinity, fully embodied in my feminine presence.

Done am I with pushing and pulling; trading in the effort for a deeper grace that lies within me. Done am I with hiding my woo-woo self for what I think others think I should be. Done am I with holding back or shrinking into the sidelines.

I noticed my tendencies already, to not rock the boat; to fit into my family; to not speak when I really want to speak. I also noticed already, my willingness to embody my feminine movements, to dance more freely, to use my body more consciously. To Be bolder, without being pushy.

It’s a divine dance and I’m coming to the floor ready to release that which no longer serves me in order to more fully serve humanity.

I can’t recall how many times I’ve had a coming out party, but here’s to another one. Here’s to the importance of taking time to refresh, renew and re-ignite the passions within.  I’m so grateful I have the opportunities and the awareness to listen and act upon my inner impulse!

If you’d like to reawaken a deeper part of yourself, schedule your free call here.

Willing to Serve Creation

In 2010, I heard the words: Are you willing to serve Creation? 
Although it appeared to be a simple question and my answer was an automatic YES, little did I realize how my life would change.
The very next statement I heard was: Then you will be asked to surrender everything!  Again, I thought that would be ok, but little did I know what it entailed.
Over the course of the next few months, I began to discover the meaning of surrender. I let go of my job, my career; my relationship, my home and that was ony the begininng. I then let go of emotion – anger, fear, guilt, shame, blame to name a few. Then the hard part began, the dissolution and dismantling of my belief system and structure.
To make a long story short, I was emptied, cleaned and turned inside out and then a rebuilding began. The rebuilding came with new beliefs, a fresh perspective on Spirit and my purpose in life.
That purpose is Awakening! I stand for the Awakening of the planet! The awakening from sleep to Aliveness; from unworthiness to worth and value; from the focus on all that does not work, to a life that works for All. The awakening and realization of your deepest Essence; your most authentic Beingness which leads to clarity and confidence in purpose, passion and connection.
Love is the way, but everything unlike Love has to go, it has to be dismantled and transcended. I was given a signature system that quickly, easily, gently releases life-long limiting patterns, shatters invlsible glass ceilings and frees the soul to Become all it is here to Be!  This is part of the work of Awakening.
The other part is to realize your hidden gifts, passions purposes and bring those to the world in a way that supports financial freedom, contribution and your Soul with balance for your entire life.
is beginning next week. It is a structured support of Awakening!  Each week we will explore and experience a different spiritual principle that will aid in your ever evolving spiritual journey.  Each week you will be be supported in clearing the old and activating the new.
If you’ve been feeling a little stuck in your progress, this is perfect!
If you’ve been yearning for something, even if you don’t know what it is – this will be perfect for you!
If you’ve been knowing there is more for you… this could be the perfect next step!
Will you be part of this group? Is it your time?  If so, click through to my calendar and let’s chat about it!
Information page link. 
Here’s what a client said recently –
“I’m so mellow, so relaxed and yet on fire with possibilities. It’s like the urgency was replaced with a knowing that has allowed me to be calm in my actions.” 
I hope you will join me and if you are considering it – let’s chat!  

In-Joy and with Ease,

The World Is Falling Apart

It appears that the world is in chaos. The fires, the floods, the hurricanes, the politics. The hate and violence that appears to be normalizing.

      

 

The repeal of DACA – good, honest, hardworking Americans who happened to not have been born here potentially being deported. The crazy, the insane, the scary. What is going on and how do we stand in it?

The United States of America is being hit hard right now. We are not alone, there are fires, outrageous heat, hurricanes and devastation in other countries as well. Since I am American, I will address our country, but not to the exclusion of other countries who are being battered with nature or human devastation.

I offered a LIVE video on Being Battered, watch it here.

Recently we had both the Lunar and two weeks later, the Solar Eclipse, which fascinating enough also only was visible from our country and to most of it. Very curious, you might think. Could it be that we are experiencing the after math of these two spectacular events?  Maybe.

This is a question that was posted to me;

“What’s going on and how can it be fixed? How can believers do something to help?”

Here’s my thought: First and foremost, keep your attention off the drama/trauma and on the Light. Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God.”  Second – if you are in the way of harm – MOVE! Get yourself safe!

There is a story about a man who was trusting God to save him from rising waters. (This is a story, however, it made itself real last week in Houston). The short version of the story is that a boat came by twice, then a helicopter to rescue him, ultimately from the roof. He refused saying God would save him. Finally, he drowned and found himself at the Pearly Gates. He whined to God, why didn’t you save me? God replied, I sent you two boats and a helicopter!

The point being, God isn’t partial to one human over another; God or nature rains (or fires, or floods, or storms) on everyone equally.

Mother Nature is fierce and when she is storming, get out of the way! Keep yourself safe!

There are many theories flying around about Climate Change – isn’t it obvious our climate is changing?! There are theories about some of these storms being man-made or man influenced. At some level, isn’t that obvious also? We are not caring for our earth in a very compassionate and loving way. We are continually contaminating it, taking it for granted and even taking advantage of it. Of course, things are going to happen. (I’m not going to even touch on the man-made weather, but you can google it, if you care to explore another version).

I was asked for spiritual help, so that is what I’m offering.

I believe that humanity is basically good at its core, that we are awakening to Love and light and a new way of living together, in Oneness on the planet. I also believe that everything unlike Love must come up. That is part of what we are experiencing.

With the hatred, the violence. We find ourselves with a leadership that not only condones hatred and violence, but practices it openly. This has granted permission to those who harbor hatred in their consciousness to express it outwardly.

I do not condone hatred or violence in any way shape or form. Yet, as I witness it in the outer, I must look at places within my own consciousness that I’m angry, that I get violent. You should hear my silent rants against the hatred, you’d think I was practicing violence in my own head.

This is all part of the ultimate healing process. We cannot stand for hate or violence at any level and it washes down. We are being called to clear ourselves of hate and of fear.

Remember the bible story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den? Basically, Daniel kept his focus so on his God that the lions’ mouths were closed and he escaped death. Also in the book of Daniel is the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego who were thrown into a fiery furnace. Their focus on God kept them from being burned.

We are in fiery furnaces and lion’s dens; so, where do we put our attention? On the drama, trauma? On resisting that which is?

No, we keep our focus on the love that we see, the good that is happening. We don’t bury our heads in the sand, but we don’t give our energy and attention on fear. When we are focused on a greater good, we may be called into action. If you feel the call, take action, but not from fear or resistance to what is.

What is happening? We are being cleansed at a deep level. Just as deep wound needs to be lanced to heal completely, this is happening in our humanity.

Why? Either because we have crazy in charge, which we must remember we voted in. I don’t know how or why, but somehow the crazy has all been voted for. Or we can believe that all this is working together for a greater good.

Romans 8:28, All things work together for good for those who love God.

That does not mean that every event, situation or circumstance is good. It does mean that for those who love God, those who are committed to Love, will find a way to come together for a greater good. Does this mean that disaster won’t strike? No, but when we focus on the good that comes – the connection, the generosity, the community that happens, we find love during it.

Why? I have no clue. It’s crazy making in my mind too. It blows my mind and I can’t even begin to comprehend what we are seeing.

But what to do? Find love, seek love, keep your focus on love. Take a stand for LOVE, do not participate in protests against, only rallies for. Take a stand for kindness, compassion. Do not engage in fear based tactics – no matter what.

Shift your focus from what you see to what you want to see. For what you focus on, you will see more of.

Hold yourself accountable to yourself, and to the awakening of the planet. Trust in the goodness of God/Spirit/Source/ Creation – no matter what.

If you were to create a beautiful garden, you would first need to clear out the weeds, and till the soil. If this is what’s happening on a global scale, so be it.

Trust that you are protected, that you are love and loved; that you will not only survive, but also thrive. Does that mean that you will escape all the crazy, perhaps not, but you will get through it; you will be ok!

I believe we are being called to reassess our values, to recalibrate our lives. Sometimes it looks hard and scary, but that which matters most will remain, will survive, will rise above.

I’ve cleared a few spots in my calendar to support those who are traumatized by current events and are seeking support.  Simply fill out this quick survey and let me know what’s going on for you.

The other great big piece is that we are each, individually and collectively being called to do our own healing work, to have our own awakening. That sometimes is the hardest work, but it will pay off! It will bring you great comfort and peace in your own consciousness and your own live. It will also bring clarity about what is yours to do.

When we stand in our Truth, in Love; we are guided as to how to individually participate in the world. Sometimes it is action, other times it is prayer.

For everyone, pray love; pray rain where the planet needs it; pray dryness where the globe is saturated. Pray balance in nature and the softening of the brutality in all our planet.

Pray love. Be love. Pray light. Be light. Trust in that which is greater than all of it. Trust in a greater good that will be revealed.

Notice I did not say pray for; I said Pray!

Know that you are not alone, you are love, you are loved, you are loveable forever. Practice kindness and compassion. Give love your attention. Release fear, release judgment, forgive that which you see and don’t understand.

Our God, no matter what name or flavor you call it, is a God of Love, of goodness. Practice your deepest, broadest beliefs and encompass the globe with your love, your faith, your trust.

That is what those who are believers in a greater good are called to be and to do.

So much love to our planet. So much love to our country. So much love to you, who are suffering, who are struggling to make sense out of senselessness. So much love to our Humanity.

If you’d like support, contact me!

In-Joy and with Ease,

Impact of the Eclipse

In the United States of America this week, we experienced a phenomenon, an event of the century. We had a full solar eclipse that crossed the entire country. The last one like this was 99 years ago, think about that! Starting off the coast of Oregon and traversing the continent all the way to South Carolina and into the Atlantic Ocean.

There have been many things written and contemplated about this event and how it is impacting us on many levels. I was impacted personally and spiritually in profound ways that are yet unfolding.

 

My husband and I went out onto our lake in our kayaks with a small box – our hand-made viewer, with an expectation and an openness to experience whatever came. There was an energy, a feeling of anticipation. Like in the movies when something big is about to happen, you can feel it coming. It was like that.

It was a cloudy day, hot and humid day, but we had high hopes that the clouds would clear and they did. We talked about what this might be; how it might impact us and we spent time simply in the silence receiving the energies of love and light.

The event was amazing, our little handmade viewer was ok. We were gifted official viewing glasses by some boaters who saw us drifting close to them. That was so amazing. What we noticed during the fullness of the event was not that it got dark where we were, and not that the animal sounds changed, but that it was significantly cooler. It likely dropped 10 degrees for about 30 minutes or so. That was crazy. And yes, the temperature was back up before we left the lake!

Afterwards, in the day and following days, I was thinking about the impact and I noticed a few things I want to address.

First, the entire country was looking up at the same time.  The collective was looking up at the same time. Looking up is a technique that I use often with my clients.

When we get bogged down in something, when we get tunnel vision about an issue or problem or even when our mind gets loopy, one very quick and effective technique is to look up. To shift your focus from small to large; look to the sky and gain a new perspective; look up to see new possibilities; to free your mind; to expand your awareness. This impacts us mentally, but it also impacts the physical body. So often when we are stressed our physical bodies are folded into themselves; we are hunched over our keyboards, shoulders in our ears and rounded. Our posture is bad and our breathing strained.

The simple act of looking up causes a stretching of the entire body from your neck to your chest and shoulders. It opens the airways and the throat chakra, which is about the power of voice and speaking your truth. Look up now and feel the stretch all the way down your back. Open your shoulders and chest and lean into it. Become aware of the lengthening of your torso, which gives relief to all the belly organs and beyond.

On a mental level, when we raise our sight from the problem, we are more apt to discover a solution. When we interrupt the mental looping, there is room for new ideas to enter.

Spiritually, when we look up, we connect to that which is greater than us; call it God, Creation, Source, the Universe; or call it the Sky or the sun, or moon or stars. Whatever it is, when we make connection to something grand outside of ourselves, we are lifted into new awareness and new consciousness. If we consciously make this connection we can be lifted to new vibrations, frequencies and even dimensions.

The fact that so many Americans were looking up on this moment in time, is significant! Looking away from all the problems, the whining, the complaining, the issues of our country at something so much greater than us, the solar eclipse, is truly impactful, even if most of them don’t have any awareness of it.

Could our country use a little lifting up right about now? Of course, and collectively we looked together.

A second, yet similar realization I had was that we had a collective Shared Experience. Think about times of great trauma, tragic events and how we come together as a people in love and support. 9-11 comes to mind. This week, we came together in a shared experience of looking up, of this natural, cosmic event. We have a shared consciousness around it. We joined with neighbors and strangers sharing our awe and wonder, sharing our glasses and our experiences. Can you feel how profound this is – even if we didn’t notice it at the time? We were consciously connected across the planet, and indeed across the globe.

Our hearts and minds were together on this moment. Collectively when we share an experience, we are more aware of our bonds, of our connection.

In an article I wrote,  “Musings about the Eclipse” –  I explored ideas about the Sun and Moon, and the portal that was being created by the feminine covering the masculine here, and about the eclipse being a cleansing breath.

To me, the experience was a portal to a new possibility, a new dimension of consciousness. When I was in Brazil last May, I entered a new dimension, I had the literal, visceral experience of living in a different dimension for a couple of weeks. This felt like a portal available to anyone and everyone who was aligned with a new possibility; who is aligned with a new world; one of love, light, joy and peace for all people. It sounds like new-age mumbo jumbo, but I’ve experienced it as real. More real in fact than the reality we live in daily. (I’m taking a group to Brazil in May, info here)

I was basking in these vibrations, enjoying a moment of peace and exploration of all the photos people were sharing when I came across this video by Nasa.  The opening sentence was “the viewing of the eclipse was out of this world”. They meant literally, it was a recording of the entire event across our country from satellite. Watch it here:

The eclipse as a satellite saw it

This brought me to another layer of processing. It was totally cool, much larger than I realized and profound to witness from above. What impacted me in this video, however was the darkness. It felt like a sci-fi film where the darkness had form, albeit vaporous and amorphous form, it moved across the earth, darkening everything as it traversed the continent.

It was similar to the opening lines of Genesis: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

Sort of.  It was like this deep, dark, emptiness hovering over our country, spreading, moving. It was like it had a life of its own. I had a couple of thoughts – one it was gathering all the darkness of humanity into its arms and in its wake, was more light; a lightness of spirit; of humanity. Watch it again and notice how the light returns and even gets apparently brighter as the darkness passes.

Or, maybe it is representing the darkness that is seeping through our country in deeply disturbing ways. Even so, the light will return, and become even brighter. It takes all of us to do so.

The video disturbed me in ways that I’m not sure I can even put words on. Even as I speak about the Moon, the feminine, as dark, it is deep and creative; the womb of creation; the depths of soil that allow a seed to sprout. (Read my article, here.)

What I know to be true is this:

Something happened this week that was cosmic and profound. We can allow ourselves to be positively impacted by this event or we can go right back to sleep and continue our ways.

My hope, my call, my commitment is to support all who are ready and willing to continue to Awaken, to use the energies available this week and beyond to catapult an awakening of spirit, to connect to that which is greater than us and to come into alignment with more love, more light.

Our world needs us now. Our country needs us now. We are being supported by On High, by the heavens and the earth; by the sun and the moon and so much more to awaken into a greater awareness of who we are and who we are here to be.

We are spiritual beings, awakening to a greater truth that we are One, that life can be richer, juicier and more fulfilling that perhaps it has been. We are here to discover and bring forth our deepest Essence and that will be profound.

Imagine a world where everyone knew their value, their worth; where there was only love and light; where all know our Oneness with each other and the planet.

Imagine a day of awakening when the moon blocks out the sun for a moment in time, opening portals to the rise of the Divine Feminine; that of love, compassion, kindness; nurturing, nourishing and connection. Deep connection to all that is and infinite possibilities.

Imagine that day. Oh, it just happened. Now what are you going to do with it?

In-Joy and with Ease,
