World Drum Beats Rhythm of One

Last night I got the unique opportunity to take my children to a sacred drumming ceremony. It was in honor of the 8th Anniversary of the World Drum. The World Drum was created in Norway in 2006 and has been travelling across the world to many countries and many people uniting our sacred tie as human beings with one beat, the heart beat of the Earth. Its focus is on Peace and Environmental Issues.

My night wasn’t going so well. My daughter did not nap at preschool and was very crabby and my son too seemed to not be in a pleasant mood. I had wanted to take them out for a walk somewhere, take them to dinner, and then meet at the location of the World Drum event at 6:00pm for the ceremony. But, as often happens with children in your life, plans changed quickly based on the current condition of the child. I needed to bend to accommodate them and not take them out and about and potentially stretch them even further emotionally. So we stayed home, made dinner at home, and unfortunately the crabbiness continued. There were several points where I felt like just forgetting going to the World Drum event. But there was a piece of me that just wouldn’t let it go, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So, I took the dare of this being a big mistake and brought my two crabby kids to the event in hopes that it would go well. I am so grateful that I did and was very thankful my children were peaceful for the experience– although who am I kidding, while in the presence of the World Drum how could one not feel peace.

My son Gavin happened to be holding the World Drum when it was time for the reading of the prayer. All other drums were silent as he alone got to beat the heart beat of Mother Earth on the World Drum during this very special moment in ceremony. It was very moving and I was very happy for this special opportunity given to him.

Here are a few pictures from our night: my children playing sacred flutes and Gavin with the World Drum.

Do you see me?

Sometimes what a child’s soul says to their parent:

“I see you, do you see me?”

Take time to be still and to watch your children free from judgment, criticism, or the need to correct.

Take time to see them for who they are.

Perfect and imperfect. Beautiful and learning, just like you.

Being a parent is a challenge for a reason. Children are a blessing and come with much to teach us. They come with just the right combination of knowing how to melt our hearts and also what buttons to push so that we may grow into better human beings. They provide us with plenty of opportunities to practice love, kindness, patience, and compassion. And in return they give us their open mind and open heart to make our impression on. It can be tough being a parent, but remember it can be tough being a kid sometimes too.

In your journey as a parent keep in mind that at any time you can ask God to help you in your parenting. Sometimes this is the strength we need to know we are not alone.

God please help me to be a good parent and to honor who my children are as they grow wholly into themselves.

Thank you God for my beloved children.

Amen.

Power in Perspective

I invite you to read this powerful article that speaks to the unrealized potential of the perspectives we hold and how we really do create our own reality.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

“You are the classifier of your own life. If you label an experience (whether one you watched on television or one you lived through) as bad, then it will have undesired effects on you. If you classify it as good, it will have pleasant effects on you.”

“The real effect of things on your physical body is the belief you have about them.”

——————–

Chakras are spiritual centers of your body and are likened as spinning wheels of light. This is where the energy of your soul filters into the energy of your physical self. It is ideal for your chakras to be open and balanced although sometimes these centers can shut-down which in turn can shut-down aspects of yourself. Maybe you are having issues with your root chakra and have not been feeling secure, perhaps you find it hard to keep your throat chakra open and speak your truth, or maybe your sense of yourself is dulled at the center of the solar plexus chakra. There is so much to be explored and communicated through the chakra system and insights to the state of your being are only a session away.

Listen To Your True Feelings

In preparation for the closing of 2013 and the opening of 2014 I pulled an oracle card for myself. “Listen to your true feelings,” is what it said. After thinking on it and trying to connect with the deepest truth of my direction and how I am currently feeling, this is what I wrote:

Sunrise Path

My journey is about me. It is about me being me and if I can add to the world, assist people in their own process, and deliver graces of God I am humbled, grateful, and in awe. But the goal in my life is not about what I will do to help others it is about reaching deep within myself and pulling out more of my divine being-ness. It’s about being present. Being local to the moment, space, and people in my life. Fully attentive to the spirit that is me.  That is what is, so that being said being a writer is about my flow expressing creatively while being a healer is about being in the flow of the world. The two are never to be separated – personal flow and global flow. That is the grandest scale of perfection in creation, that all is intertwined. The two are not singular, but are one. Creativity and perception translates into inspiration for others. Like saying, “This is what I see, this is what I feel, now take it and make it your own.” Emerge first within yourself and later from yourself as your divine and inspirational gifts are picked up in the global flow of life distinguishing you as a living and breathing being and as sole creator for one destiny ~ your own. It is not about me…. it is about you. And you must find it for yourself. Inner guidance is available to all. And each in our own way are expressions of our journey to live in our own creation of time, writing our masterpiece that is life.

Reflect on these words, reflect on who you are, and start asking yourself questions…”How do I really feel?”  Become your own light and your own guide. This is how it is to become.

The path becomes easier when you’re friends with yourself and love is the most masterful key.

Look at the above picture and breath in the light. Light is all around you, it is in the Qi energy that you breathe, and it invigorates your soul… so breathe light.

A New Year Begins Today…

Ever feel like you have been preparing your whole life for this moment? That is what I am feeling like today, only it is not for this moment it is for the potential contained within this moment. I have been preparing potential for lifetimes. I see now. Lifetimes upon lifetimes, preparing myself, my soul, to step forward into the mists of my potential. It is not concrete it is divine, it has no form, I have no form, my potential is formless and so it is just me… Today feels so still and so pregnant, pregnant with possibility.

 

I have been acquiring new spiritual foods to nourish myself and an intuitive forecast of the coming year is marked by change. And here I sit at the foot of it, my first day beyond my birthday. I am in awe of the potential that lies within this day, the potential that lies within me. Tears come to my eyes as I feel my own truth… I am a gift. I am a gift. I mean this not out of ego or even opinion, it’s deeper than that. It stretches through my very being as a feeling connected to the knowingness that God and I are one. This is humanity’s truth. We are all awakening on our own levels in our own time and of our own accord. It is a journey that takes lifetimes. Unfolding and knowing self as a gift, self as a space, a mind, a soul, and a light, self as God. I am floating and light as I write this. Not quite corded to the physical plane right now, but I don’t care. I don’t care because I am touching the truth of who we all are… gifts of God’s true, pure, and masterful love.

 
The year will unfold accordingly and I know I have challenges to come but in today, and really even just in this moment, I feel all the potential of what I am capable of in this tiny little year of time and so I pray for my own soul to be strong, to be courageous, to be still, and to surrender and follow God’s divine lead. A lead only I can hear for myself through my own soul and my own heart. I pray for my own soul to live its potential of the highest caliber, manifesting God’s truth through me. My body feels so tingly and the air around me is so charged with spirit. I take a moment and drink in this mass of light energy through my crown chakra allowing it to settle into my system. Breathing out peacefully and settling into my bones as I sit. I shift back a bit in my chair, unintentionally, moved by spirit. My eyes are closed as my fingers type. My whole body hums with that which is the universe. I can see the stars within me as my true origin lies out there, somewhere among the stars, a starry night person. I am bigger than this world and so are you.

 
I don’t know when your birthday is but damn, happy birthday to you, and may you live out all of your highest potential in the years to come.
Sometimes feelings can’t be expressed in words, but wow what a feeling this is.

 
Parting thoughts to share…
The other day after meditation I asked, “God show me what I can soar with?” To which the reply was, “Love. Love, love, love, love, love. Soar with love; the most powerful thing.”
Yes, I speak direct to God. There’s no separation. And you can too, there is no separation for you as well. As a dear and wise friend once said, “I am not special, unique, or exceptional what I can do you can do too.” And that is God’s honest truth for you to discover as well. You carry so much potential just simply by being. All of the potential is already contained within it’s just a matter of connecting to it and allowing it to take its form through you.

 
Also, today just before I sat down to meditate and “leave earth” (lol) my guidance gave me this advice, “Surrender and allow. Feel into every moment. Don’t make choices ahead of time. Feel. Feel into the moments, surrender, and allow.” My afterthoughts I wrote down were… Stop trying to control. The true potential is held within the space and time of feeling into the moment. And in the moment of feeling into it and allowing, is the openness. The openness that leads us to our highest potential and most conscious choices. It is called conscious living and as a species we are still volleying back and forth between conciousness and unconsciousness but here we are today, and the potential is ours!

“We carry every answer to every problem within ourselves.

The trick is, to stop long enough to listen to our inner voice.”

       ~ Deva Premal and Miten

I have been participating in a 21 day Mantra Meditation Journey with Deva Premal and Miten. I am 2 weeks in and am still in awe of what gifts it brings. The practice of mantra meditation I have done before during Kundalini Yoga, but in this quick and simple 15 minute form, I didn’t know what I was missing! To me this discovery is a little piece of heaven I can return to on a regular basis. The healing contained within the mantras is phenomenal. I walk away feeling healed, balanced, and whole. And it emphasizes the 5th chakra giving me the verbalizing my voice piece that my spirit needs to grow and making it even more potent for my personal process.

I am someone who loves to learn and loves new experiences and this meditation journey has been such a surprise! I did not realize I would get so much from it.

It is still going on so if you too are interested I highly recommend signing up. You can do so through this link: http://www.mentorschannel.com/DevaPremal/21-DayMantraMeditationJourney/LandingPage/

Why not check it out, it is free. Maybe you too will discover what you didn’t know you were missing.
