Photo by: meddygarnetIf you’re living a truly conscious life, then you naturally have great respect for animals.

And you probably also feel great pain at how they are often treated by humans.

Sometimes it’s even disheartening that so little progress is made so slowly.

But there’s good news.

As part of the human race, the more we contribute to raising human consciousness — with respect to animals but also in general — the treatment of animals by humans is bound to improve as well.

This is because raising consciousness is a way to work more closely with cause rather than with effect, or symptoms.

Raising Awareness

Right now, the way animals are treated is abysmal and this article won’t detail the atrocities. If you aren’t aware of them, but would like to be, the film EARTHLINGS is an excellent place to start. It’s about practices that are typical yet — with good reason — are always hidden from view. But be forewarned, it’s a moving film which may literally traumatize you, like it did me. (You can check out some reviews here. They are compelling.)

Another source of excellent information is the PETA website (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). If you yourself are ever interested in living a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, they have lots of helpful information, free kits to help you make changes, lots of recipes, and leads to really great resources.

Veganism, and Cruelty-Free Living

If you do look into going vegan, you’ll find out that it’s not always just about diet (i.e. not eating animals and/or animal products).

It’s more about a “cruelty-free” way of life.

A cruelty-free lifestyle involves not eating or using any type of animal product, especially when the animals were mistreated during processing.

Many of us don’t think about it but this means not supporting industries that promote the fancy leather car seats (or furniture), leather shoes or jackets, animal hide accessories, down clothing or bedding, fancy or beautiful feathers, fur, boar bristles, wool products (including lanolin), and even silk. Some vegans even shy away from using honey unless it’s from a natural and organic source.

Humane Options

It’s startling how many of our household products, from toiletries to cleaning supplies, are tested on animals. Even some of the companies that claim not to test on animals sometimes contract out to a third party who does. Most of these testing practices are cruel. And of course, some of our medicines/drugs (such as Premarin) are derived from animals who are treated horrifically.

There are often times when animals, insects, etc. encroach on us and we have to draw the line somewhere. Again, there are many humane options available now, and thankfully most are available to all of us via the internet.

It may take more time to research and use these methods, but a conscious, kind person will make the effort.

As you read these stories you will see that whenever I was properly humble and willing to let something besides a human be my instructor, these various four-legged, six-legged, and no-legged fellows shared priceless wisdom with me. They taught me that perfect understanding and perfect co-operation between the human and all other forms of life is unfailing whenever the human really does his required part.

~ Foreword to Kinship with All Life, by J. Allen Boone, 1954

So there are many ways we can all play an active role in our own lives to honor animals as sentient beings.

Doing so not only benefits them but it benefits us as well.

A conscious person always benefits from living in integrity, and conscious integrity allows for nothing short of respect for all sentient beings. (Including our fellow humans, by the way!)

And if you get nothing else from this post, get this:

As part of the human race,
raising your own consciousness will necessarily
help raise the consciousness of human-kind in general,
with countless positive side-effects.

And it’s a most rewarding type of activism!

How You Can Make a Difference

Consider adding just one additional practice to your lifestyle that is respectful of animals or will help raise human consciousness with regard to them.

And really, it’s not always even about “adding” a practice as it is merely “substituting”.

And note that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing! This is an important thing to remember. So many don’t do anything because they know they are not willing or able to “give it all up”. But that’s not necessary! Perhaps you could be vegetarian one day per week. Or be vegetarian instead of vegan.

Anything at all that you are willing to do is a step forward.

Here are some ideas (most from this article) and resources:

In closing, I’d like to leave you with one of my favorite quotes about these magnificent beings (also quoted in the film EARTHLINGS):

We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. … We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.

~ Henry Beston

Thank-you in advance, from all Earthlings!

emerge into springHappy Spring!

Last year around this time, I did a Spring Activation (a group Holographic Emergence™ session) to help jumpstart our new growth.

Before we did the session, I talked about how I envision Emergence as it relates to our Divine template or to us as a seed of sorts.

To welcome spring, I want to share these ideas with you in this short, live audio which is the introduction to that Activation.

Enjoy!

Magic is the New NormalWOW, I sure enjoyed our recent January Activation!

It went well, and it was enlightening for me to interact with those of you who participated (thank you)!

I got a great question during the Q & A that made something I’d been considering even more apparent.

It’s the importance of developing an open mind.

It’s the very first step, even before learning about the Open State and how to be in it.

We need to get out of our own way so that we can take advantage of what the Open State offers.

(If you were on the call, you heard me announce a February blog series about the Open State, but this made me realize I first want/need to write awhile about an open mind. So here we go!)

Can you let go of what you think you know and open your mind wide to all the possibilities?

An Open Mind

I’ve been developing my magical thinking all my life, really. I didn’t think about it that way at the time, but that’s what I was doing. It’s perfectly natural to me.

It’s so natural, that I’m coming to the conclusion that magic is the new normal: Many of my friends live that way, as do many of you.

If the idea of an open mind sounds or feels foreign to you, know that you can develop one deliberately.

Learning – Not!

And it’s not so much about learning something new. It’s more about UN-learning what you think you know.

UN-learning all your limiting beliefs.

Believing – Not!

And it’s not about believing in magic and miracles.

It’s not about believing in anything!

It’s about letting go of beliefs and being willing to open to the possibilities!

Then you’ll be not only more able, but also more motivated to embrace the Open State which is an expanded way of perceiving and experiencing (and the state from which you can easily facilitate magic and miracles).

A Foundation for Emergence

In many ways, an open mind is the primary foundation of Emergence. But to be more accurate, it’s more of a non-foundation, since unlike most foundations, it’s an undefined element.

Rather than being “solid”, it’s malleable and always changeable.

That’s the beauty, the magic, and the fun of it.

In the world where magic is the new normal, you get to make it up as you go. (Stick with me and you’ll “get” what this means. ;-) )

A New Mindset

So a truly open mind allows for a new mindset where your perspective remains fluid.

It enables you to open to the possibilities:

• Of the process

No rules!

• Of the results

No limits!

• Of reality

It may not be what you think it is — in fact, it’s probably not!

Your open mind will be much more open to possibilities than is the (old ;-) ) norm.

So, are you open to becoming more open?

If so, keep an eye on this space.

In upcoming posts I’ll be presenting some new models to play with that will help you open your mind even more than it already is.

And if you want to know more about Emergence, sign up for my newsletter and as a free gift you’ll get the Emergence Primer plus a Tune-Up Session audio you can use over and over.

Thanks for reading! Until next time,

Hello, magical creatures!

Here’s a short, easy-to-listen-to audio that sets the stage for several of my upcoming articles.

It’s an excerpt from our most recent live Activation (a group Holographic Emergence™ session).

In essence, it’s about opening to the possibilities of your reality:

If you can’t believe in *magical* possibilities, you’re not as likely to see or manifest them

• A brief, in-a-nutshell explanation of what I call “Emergence” and why

Listening will give you a better idea of what this blog is about, too.

Group ActivationJoin us this Friday for a

FREE
group
Holographic Emergence
session

(or “Activation”).

During an Activation, I use my Holographic Emergence™ abilities to activate a particular energy as pre-determined for each Activation.

Within that area, you bring your own individual intention and we activate that as well.

This time, though, we’re going to do it a bit differently. (In fact, it’s not technically an “Activation” since I’m not choosing a particular energy to activate.)

This Month’s Focus

This time, you will bring your own intention, in any area, and and we’ll activate that together!

That means I’ll access a quantum state (the field of magic and miracles) to facilitate a positive shift related to your intention.

On top of that, I’m going to walk you through a simple version of my process as we go, so that afterward you can practice it on your own with any number of intentions.

So not only do you get a Holographic Emergence™ session, you get a mini-class as well!

How the Activation Will Unfold

As with all the previous Activations, I’ll begin with a short introduction. This time we’ll cover the importance of opening your mind to the possibilities – especially important since you’re going to be activating your intention along with me.

As we do your session, you’ll also learn how to:

1. Offer your intention

I’ll elaborate on this during the introduction.

2. Calibrate (when possible)

I’ll also cover this during the introduction.

3. Get into the state

We’ll do this together as part of the activation.

You’ll come away with 2 easy yet powerful ways to enter the state.

4. Make a simple observation/measurement

We’ll be doing a very simple focusing activity that is somewhat a cross between the Matrix Energetics “Two-Point” and Dr. Frank Kinslow’s “Quantum Entrainment Triangulation” technique.

5. Notice what changed

This is an important part of the process and is where you may also see immediate results (depending on your intention).

And that’s it! (As if that’s not enough!)

In Addition …

• It’s Free!

There’s no charge for this, but note that this is the last free Activation.

I’ve enjoyed doing these with you but participants have been encouraging me to charge for these. (I know, right?! :-) )

In a few months I’ll be offering them regularly for a small fee.

• Time for Q & A

The Activation will take approximately 1 hour which includes time afterward for reports and questions.

• Includes a Free Download

Afterward, registrants will get a link to download the session which can be used as a booster session as well as for review and practice.

Ready to join us? Please do!

And share this post with your friends, too. The more the merrier. (Buttons below, or forward if you’re reading this in email.)

There are only a few days left so act now.

It’s taking place this Friday at 10:30a MST. (It’s a teleconference so everyone can attend, no matter where in the world you are!)

Want more info about what a Holographic Emergence session is, and what you can expect? Read about my Holographic Emergence™ services, or check out my “new service” announcement post with even more introductory info.


This free Activation is for newsletter subscribers only.

If you’re already a subscriber, you’ll find the registration link in the latest newsletter (from last Friday — check your inbox).

If you’re not yet a subscriber, you can subscribe here (it’s free), and you’ll be emailed a link to the newsletter that has the registration button. [You'll also get a new subscriber thank-you gift: Emergence Primer + Tune-Up Session!]


Thanks for reading, and I hope to “see” you on Friday!

A Way of Being, with Fun on Top!Did you know that the most powerful way to practice Emergence requires no overhead at all?

Granted, the sessions themselves are short and fun, but there’s another even more basic aspect of Emergence I want to be really clear about:

Emergence is not so much an activity.
It’s a way of Being.

And then, on top of that way of Being, there are some ways you can apply quantum principles to help encourage your essence to emerge in a certain way. These are what comprise a session.

Spirited Play

But you can’t facilitate sessions with a sense of desperation or even need. It just doesn’t work that way.

It’s got to be in the spirit of fun, and play. Because that’s what this world of form is. It’s a playground!

I know, I know.

I, too, have had some big challenges that sure don’t feel like fun.

But that’s the trick – to get to that place where even difficult things can be appreciated at least as adventures!

In the memorable words of John Sherman,

“You are not at stake here!”

Your Essence is Immortal and Untouchable

We (as consciousness, awareness, essence) are never affected in any way by what’s occurring in our lives. And that means not only “outward” seeming events and situations, but even what most consider “inner” movements such as thoughts and feelings.

They are not you!

Well, okay … in a way they are because they are your essence emerging and not apart from you, but they are not you as your divine, immortal Being.

It’s helpful to “get” that. Understanding it is a start but ultimately you want to live it.

So once you are actually operating consistently from that state of Being, you’ll find that your life unfolds much more harmoniously than if you’re not.

And even when it doesn’t, you are able to appreciate it for what it is.

It’s a movement of your own consciousness
that you, as your divine self,
are getting to experience.

How amazing and cool is that?!

Fun with Form

And then, just for fun, you can learn to do Emergence “sessions” to intentionally play in the quantum field — that same field of consciousness or awareness that is your essence — to help shift how you are emerging. In other words, to affect the world of form that you experience.

And this blog discusses all of the above. If you read my posts, and apply the periodic exercises or suggestions, you ought to be able to learn a lot just from that.

Thank you!

Patti

We flicker in and out of existence all the time.

A few days ago I was doing a Holographic Emergence session with a client. She commented that she was feeling dizzy.

Believe it or not, this happens often, and is a good thing!

It’s one of the indications that a shift is occurring.

During Matrix Energetics seminars, it’s common for people to get wobbly or actually collapse while we’re doing practices with each other.

Which is why I have my clients sit or lie down when I’m not there with them in person (i.e. a phone session). That way a wobble or collapse becomes merely a sense of dizziness or some similarly innocuous sense of disorientation. :-)

Let’s Look with Quantum Eyes

I can’t pretend to know for sure what’s going on but this quote from Deepak Chopra’s fascinating book The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire is a good starting point (my emphasis via bolding):

So it is only in our consciousness that our limited senses create a solid world out of pure energy and information.

But what if we could see into the quantum domain — if we had “quantum eyes”?

In the quantum domain, we would see that everything we think of as solid in the physical world is actually flickering in and out of an infinite void at the speed of light.

Just like the frame-and-gap sequence of a motion picture, the universe is an on-off phenomenon.

The continuity and solidity of the world exists only in the imagination, fed by senses that cannot discern the waves of energy and information that make up the quantum level of existence.

In reality, we are all flickering in and out of existence all the time. If we could fine-tune our senses, we could actually see the gaps in our existence. We are here, and then not here, and then here again. The sense of continuity is held only by our memories.

~ Deepak Chopra:  The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire

Don’t you love that?! Isn’t it wild?!

The cool thing about Emergence is that we are working from that “void” between the flickers. We take advantage of these quantum principles.

So as things shift, when you blink back into existence, you’re enough different than you were before that you can experience it as an odd sense of disorientation.

The reason you blink back slightly differently than you would otherwise is because with Emergence we adjust the patterns of light and information which inform you as a particular manifestation.

At least this explanation makes a lot of sense to me.

The Power of Now

So think about that for a minute.

That means that your existence in any given moment is separated (in an important sense) from your existence in the “next moment” (as you perceive it).

It’s very related to BEing just in this one moment. (Which is essentially the “state of magic and miracles” which I enter when I do a session.)

That also means that right now, you can experience yourself independent of any past or future if you want to. As if there is no past nor future, just now. (I have to laugh when I say “just” now, because there’s no “just” about it! The now is eternal, everlasting, with no beginning or end. Have you ever found an end to now?)

Here and Now Exercise

Here’s something I like to do now and then and it’s really rather freeing.

It can also help you begin to be aware of (and then break out of) some of your unconscious assumptions.

Now, let’s see if I can describe it well enough for you to do it …

  1. Close your eyes. (Okay okay, you can read the next steps first, tee hee.)
  2. Experience yourself right here, right now, and that’s it. You are not involved in an activity, experiencing a certain mood, in a certain place or anything. You’re just here, right now, and only this instant exists. Can you get that sense?
  3. Realize that no particular “next moment” is inevitable. There is nothing else attached to here and now.

Notice, too, how conditions or even situations can not exist in this moment because by definition they both require continuity.

Feel the freedom and possibility in that!

So tell me: Did that exercise take you to an unusual sense of this moment’s context and/or a different understanding of your place in a “timeline”? (If not, then maybe I didn’t explain it well enough. Let me know in the comments, please!)

The Pure Potential of Now

So without even getting into how Emergence actually plays in that void between flickers to influence what will emerge in that “next” moment, at least appreciate that what does emerge isn’t a given.

There is an infinite number of possibilities. There really is!

We are so used to just expecting the next moment to be like the last that it usually is.

Thanks for being here and now with me! ;-)

Patti

 

 

Did you experience a sense of possibility with the exercise? Can you imagine any other applications of this? I bet you can — I’d love to hear it!

The art and science of consciousness technology.Whether you approach life with the right or left brain, as an intuitive or rationalist, this art and science of Emergence (a Consciousness Technology) can be both fascinating and helpful!

Art and Science

I remember making a choice in high school: Art or Science? Which direction to pursue?

I was very creative and a good artist, but I loved and excelled at math and science. Granted there are vocations that blend the two, but from where I sat at a tiny parochial school in a small town in the Midwest, I didn’t know that. I felt compelled to choose.

I ended up choosing a career as a software engineer, where I used logic all the time and got to work with some really smart people. It was a good choice for me since it was lucrative and I was able to raise my son (as a single mother) in the expensive San Francisco Bay Area quite comfortably. Of course there was a lot of creativity involved but my work was still primarily left-brained and logical.

Altered States of Consciousness

At the same time, I was interested in what’s often called “spiritual growth” as well. I learned my first meditation technique when I was 18 and studied many different disciplines, philosophies, gurus, teachers, methods, practices, etc. I continued to delve into all sorts of consciousness studies.

Admittedly, I also loved drugs, especially hallucinogens. I didn’t do LSD often like some people I knew, but I did it enough to find out that there are “worlds out there” that we can’t even imagine. Not necessarily the same as reaching altered states without the aid of substances, but not necessarily different in some important respects, either.

I also had a near death experience where I got a glimpse into yet another awesome world.

To this day I’m convinced that anyone who pooh-poohs the idea that there is much more to us and our world than meets the eye, then they are simply closed-minded and although they think we are foolish, they are only limiting themselves.

A Conscious Pragmatist

As a single mom (now grandma) and an engineer (now retired), I’ve always been inclined to deal with things sensibly and realistically. Not wholly but primarily left-brained.

I was always very pragmatic. I had to be.

But that didn’t mean that accessing and taking advantage of whatever these “other worlds” offered me contradicted that. In fact, doing so would be smart. So why not?

Why not a marriage of art and science?

Why not appreciate what our right-brain — and indeed, anything else we have access to — has to offer as well as the left?!

So although I’ve found that for me, drugs are not the answer (for various reasons), I am still wholly involved in raising and expanding my consciousness in natural ways. The difference is that now I approach it more experientially rather than theoretically, and suddenly it’s becoming clear in a way it never has before. Simple and powerful, it’s one of the most satisfying and meaningful areas of my life.

I’m also more than happy to take advantage of the naturally resulting expanded awareness and heightened intuition in order to access practical information and guidance that helps in everyday life. This delights me as I’ve always known intuition exists, and seeing how easy it is to access now is icing on the cake.

A Powerful Combination

When I first learned Matrix Energetics 6 years ago, I had no idea it was related to consciousness per se. And even after taking several seminars, it was only my own putting pieces together and adapting it to my life and my understandings that I began to see that consciousness is, indeed, an integral part of the technology. (At least the way I practice it through what I call Emergence.)

That’s why I like using the term Consciousness Technology (CT) rather than some of the other terms I’ve heard used. (This technology is popping up in various forms but is in such a new stage of life that it doesn’t have a well-known name yet.)

Sometimes it’s referred to in quantum physics or quantum mechanics terms, such as quantum or holographic, or it incorporates terms such as the Zero Point Field (or Matrix, or Energetics ;-) ) or related concepts. This is how it was presented to me, and I’ve done my share of research and reading from that perspective too. This is great when you come at it from the scientific angle.

But I continue to verify for myself that in a simpler and more experiential approach, it’s essentially based on consciousness.

And yet, the outcome is ultimately practical and useful.

The whole point of Emergence is to enhance our lives in meaningful ways, including — but not limited to — those primarily related to consciousness itself (such as attaining inner peace).

But what’s my point?

Emergence for Everyone

You, too, can come at this practice from any or all directions, such as consciousness, science, or even pure pragmatism.

So you may already be interested in developing an expanded or higher consciousness. You may have been interested in consciousness for some time and have an understanding of and experience with various modes of consciousness.

Or like me, maybe you’re a product of the (in)famous 60′s and have had expansive experiences a la Timothy Leary with LSD and other hallucinogens. Maybe you simply like playing around with altered states.

Or you’ve studied various “New Age” means of manifesting … or are familiar with the power of manipulating energy … or  already appreciate the “healing arts“.

Or maybe you are simply interested in being able to get useful results in the material world. Perhaps you’re an  engineer or white-collar/blue-collar worker who puts a lot of weight on what you perceive through your senses. You’re a cut-and-dried pragmatist who merely appreciates the power of intention and hard work.

Or you value science and like my physicist friend, you are fascinated and intrigued by this practical application of  quantum principles.

No matter.

Whichever direction you approach Emergence from, you’ll find value in what it offers.

No beliefs or talents are necessary in order to benefit from it. (In fact, strong beliefs can be a disadvantage.)

And if you want to actually practice it, there are no parts of it that are hard to learn, no matter what your background. And even though consciousness is an essential part of this technology, you don’t have to be a guru or master in order to begin to see results right away.

So if you are even wondering if Emergence is for you, then the answer is a resounding yes.

Yes!

You can benefit. And if you want to do it, that’s possible too.

The fact that you are intrigued is a good sign that you ought to stick around. (Get my posts via RSS feedreader or RSS email or sign up for my newsletter!) If you want to join the growing number of fans of this fascinating

Art and Science of Transformation

Super-Charge Your Power to ManifestWhen I do

Holographic Emergence™,

I use a cutting-edge

Consciousness Technology

to super-charge our

power to manifest.

A few days ago, someone emailed and said “Can I ask you please – what is Consciousness Technology and can I read about it on your site? I don’t recall seeing that.”

Doesn’t recall seeing that?

Gasp!

Apparently, I’ve done a terrible job making it clear what this blog is about. Jeez!

This blog is primarily about what happens in one of my Holographic Emergence sessions (based on Consciousness Technology) and how you can do it too!

Here you learn:

  • Just what a “Consciousness Technology” is
  • How and why it’s so cutting edge
  • What makes it a whole new paradigm
  • How it transforms, shifts — and rocks ;-)
  • How it’s integrated with the zero point field (ZPF)
  • How it relates to words like quantum, holograph, and fractal
  • What it has to do with presence, awareness, and being
  • Why it’s not about doing, adding, or fixing
  • Why it’s not even about healing as it’s traditionally thought of

But most importantly, you learn:

  • How to apply it to manifest in a whole new powerful way
  • How to watch your world transform before your very eyes

It’s just the most powerful healing I’ve ever been through, Patti.  I’ve never experienced anything like this, it’s like a floodgate.

Manifest with Consciousness Technology

I’m struggling a little with how to present my main topic because most people don’t know this new paradigm of manifesting even exists!

What we do here is so new that it doesn’t even have a recognizable name. That’s because one hasn’t exactly been agreed upon by the various people playing and working in this field, but some have taken to calling it “Consciousness Technology”.

So it may take me some time to get it right, but to begin to make it more obvious what this blog offers, I’ve created a permanent area in my sidebar which I will update periodically.

Right now, it’s a subset of this:

Do it yourself – instructional steps

These topics will be populated as time goes on. They can be organized like this.

1.  Expand your mind

Here I mostly recommend you check out some of the books I list in my Amazon Store. Some of them will blow your mind!

But here are a few sample posts about expanding, applying, and getting results.
What Box? (Or How to Be More Creative and Intuitive)
What If This Simple Question Could Change Your Life?

2.  Intend (& let go!)

A good example of this:
Are You a Door or a Doer?

3.  Plug into “The Field” consciously by entering “The State”

Here’s a step-by-step how-to:
What “The Field” Is – and Why You Care

But also, check out any of my posts about Consciousness.

4.  Play

These posts are too numerous to list here, but you can use the “Post Topics” panel in the sidebar. Most of these are currently listed under Intuition, Guidance, and Channeling topics.

Here’s a recent post that’s fun and effective:
Heal Your Paired Body Part :: The Magic Mirror Tool

5.  See what’s different!

So far I present the details of this idea mainly to clients via a Tipsheet they get to optimize the benefits of their session. (I see I need to do some posts about this!)

For now, here’s a recent comment from a client as she noticed what was different.

You can’t put a value on something like this. There’s just nothing that compares to the peace and the tranquility that I’m feeling right now. It’s not drug induced, it’s not alcohol, or anything. It’s pure God and energy that you’re able to plug into and … oh, it’s amazing. I can see endless potential for my life now that I didn’t feel before. It’s just amazing.

So that should give you a better idea of what this blog is about and what you gain by visiting.

Thanks for your patience as I work toward making it so crystal clear that you won’t have to email anymore asking if I actually write about my main topic, LOL!

Til next time,

Questions? Requests? Please, if you have any, either leave them in the comments below or email me. It’s because of several recent emails that I saw the need to clarify these things. I’ve also been asked about classes and am beginning to develop some ideas for some. If you want them to address your needs and wants, then you need to let me know what they are! ;-)

Believing that something can heal, or even that it might be possible, is often one of the first steps to healing it.

But sometimes, try as we might, really believing it can heal is hard, if not impossible.

Here’s a really fun way around that.

It’s a new way to apply my Emergence process that I stumbled upon a few months ago, and the best part is that it works like a charm — and even for serious issues.

A Desperate Need to Heal

I’d been having serious problems with my left shoulder for about 5 months.

It had gotten progressively more rigid, to the point where it was almost unusable. Simple but important tasks like getting dressed and fixing my hair were actually challenging. Worse, there were a lot of other activities I wanted or even needed to do that were simply impossible.

I’d gone to myofacial release therapy for awhile, but after several months of regular (and painful) treatments, I still could only get my arm about parallel with the ground, maybe slightly higher. The therapists were certain I needed a lot more visits.

I’d also been going to my “magic” chiropractor (plus plus). He’s an amazing holistic healer but even he was certain I’d developed calcium deposits and would never get my shoulder moving again without surgery.

So I was at a point where nothing was improving it anymore.

I decided to regroup and tune-in to my own intuition.

I got a strong sense that it was time I use my own proven “tools” on myself. Duh.

So I discontinued the expensive myofacial release, and decided my next chiropractic treatment would be my last.

Because my Holographic Emergence™ sessions are a combination of most of my skills (and certainly of the ones I most enjoy using), I decided to start there.

The Magic Mirror Tool Revealed

So I did an Emergence session which ended up including some channeling, and during it I got the message to do some mirror work.

I wasn’t sure what that meant exactly but once I was in front of the mirror I realized: If I lift my right arm (which I could do perfectly), the mirror image makes it look as though I’m lifting my left arm.

So in other words, I was able to see my “left” arm working perfectly!

It was an odd little mind-shift but I was able to momentarily “trick” myself into perceiving it that way, and even believe it to some extent.

This was pretty cool! It was super easy and it made me feel better somehow, so I repeated that simple little mind trick a few times over a few week period.

In addition, I did a few regular Emergence sessions at the mirror, using my reflection as a surrogate for me, as if I were doing them on that person in the mirror. (Surrogates are something you’ll learn more about in future articles.)

Long story short, it all worked!!

I am absolutely thrilled to say that I have recovered use of my left arm 100%. Yay!

You Can Heal Yourself

So I firmly believe that this is something you can apply when you’re having an issue with any of your “paired structures”, i.e. those symmetrical pairs of matching body parts like shoulders, hips, arms, eyes, etc.

All you have to do is this:

  1. Decide to open to the possibility that pretending can be useful, effective, and powerful.
  2. Get in front of a mirror where you can see both matching body parts.
  3. Get into “the state.
  4. Take a moment to do that little mind-shift that I described and operate your matching body part so you “see” your compromised body part work perfectly.
  5. Repeat this every now and then. Don’t stress out about it, just do it when you’re called to.

And that’s it!

Don’t dismiss the possibility that you will notice an improvement immediately.

I noticed increased range of motion that very first day.

And as time goes on, you want to watch for anything different. Anything at all.

As I tell people after a Holographic Emergence™ session, consciously acknowledge whatever new developments you notice. It may be that something that seems unrelated comes up, such as a friend recommending a new treatment, or you see something on T.V. that might be helpful, or you get a new idea about it.

None of this actually is unrelated of course. It’s all part of the holistic way that Emergence works.

And by the way, since everything’s interrelated, trying this out doesn’t mean you don’t do other things that common sense (or your doctor) suggests. Do continue with whatever you’re already doing, or if you feel you need more, do that! I continued doing my shoulder exercises (though honestly, not as regularly), treating my trigger points, taking certain supplements, being diligent about my posture, etc.

It all works together, naturally. That’s the beauty of it.

In preparing for this week’s (free!) group Holographic Emergence Session™ where we will activate our creative process, I’ve been considering what the creative process means to me.

I keep coming back to this one simple idea that seems to form a foundation of how it works.

Because it will form the basis of our activation this week, and because it’s a useful concept in any case, I want to share it with you now.

Magnetic and Dynamic

Think of something you’ve produced from start to finish. Something you’ve conceived of, taken action on, and released out into the world.

No doubt it originated in an idea. This is the “magnetic” part.

And then it moved along a channel on its way to manifestation, which is the “dynamic” part.

I like the terms magnetic and dynamic to represent these concepts but a few other related words and concepts are:

Magnetic Dynamic
receive project
female male
feminine masculine
mother father
goddess god
moon sun
venus mars
right brain left brain
intuitive rational
holistic analytical

 

So in the context of creating, the magnetic can be thought of as getting in touch with our light, and the dynamic as actually expressing it.

If you look at the creative process as a timeline with the beginning being the initial conception (magnetic), and the endpoint being the final form, it’s as if there were a channel of energy moving the creation from its beginning all the way to its completion and release (dynamic).

Both parts of the process need to be operating well for creation to take place seamlessly.

There are many ways for us to enhance our ablities in both areas. I’ve already written about quite a few of them on this blog and I’ll continue to do so since the process of Emergence uses both of them, especially the magnetic.

Being conscious and aware of how you operate magnetically and dynamically can go a long way toward streamlining your own process. You can look objectively at where you may have weaknesses to strengthen, or strengths to optimize.

Integration or the Dance of Creation

Also important is how you integrate the two.

To really move something along the channel requires being in constant touch with both the inspiration or imaginal (magnetic) and the practical considerations and actions (dynamic).

It doesn’t just happen once. There are really a number of mini-cycles that take place within the over-arching conception-to-release cycle.

I like to think of it as a dance between our magnetic and dynamic. It’s an art, not a science, as one needs to constantly respond to the other. And in my experience, that’s what creation is about!

Creating requires that you keep your idea dancing along the channel as you help it manifest into form.

And that’s where the fun is, and the life!

That’s how and when you feel that life force coursing through you and you feel fully alive!

Dancing in the Light

A lot of the stumbling blocks I’ve run into are related to the dance.

If you’ve had difficulty manifesting your creations, you can shine some light on your dance steps.

Ask yourself if there’s anywhere in this channel where you regularly get hung up.

Some possible stumbling blocks are:

  • fears
  • distractions
  • boredom
  • “shoulds” that squeeze the joy out of your process
  • lack of information (without enough drive to push through)
  • any kind of “clog” (within you or “out there”)
  • things just stop
  • your focus dwindles off
  • any deterrent that you don’t have the motivation to examine or get past
  • you lose interest along the way
  • you just move on (and you may not even notice)
  • you make it so “big” that you get overwhelmed
  • you never even start it
  • lack of trust in what your intuitive/creative conception
  • too much “editing”
  • discouragement
  • depression
  • apathy

Ah, the list could go on and on.

But here’s something worth doing.

Simply bring the stumbling block into the light. Make it conscious to yourself. Become aware of it.

It’s an important first step in moving past it and is sometimes all that’s needed!

Join Us For the Creation Activation!

Another way to keep (or get) your creative process flowing is to participate in a Holographic Emergence™ session.

And you can try one free this week by joining us in our group session — our Creation Activation!

Let’s clear the way so we can create spectacularly!

We’ll enhance the magnetic and dynamic, and get the two dancing together to our own music.

That’s the focus of this week’s activation. (An “activation” is my name for a group Holographic Emergence session. If you want to know more about what an activation is, you can see my “Spring Activation” announcement.)

Join us! It’s FREE and it’s taking place this Thursday at 10:30a MT.

At that time, the Sun and Moon will be “dancing” together in Cancer (the Moon’s sign) in Pushyami, a very auspicious nakshatra. Next month they’ll both be in Leo (the Sun’s sign), a very creative part of the zodiac. Let’s get ready so we can take advantage of that time that is so supportive of creating!


This free activation is for newsletter subscribers only.

If you’re already a subscriber, you’ll find the registration link in the latest newsletter (from last Thursday — check your inbox).

If you’re not yet a subscriber, you can subscribe here, and you’ll be emailed a link to the newsletter that has the registration link.

Finally, if you’re a regular reader but really really don’t want to subscribe to my newsletter, just send me an email and ask me to register you. That works too.


And now: Do you have any tips about ways to enhance or streamline our creative process? As always, I’d love to hear ‘em! Thank you!

Do you ever wish you were just a little bit more creative? Or even a lot more?

How about more intuitive?

Well, I’ve noticed over the last years that as I practice this one simple activity, both my creativity and intuition have gotten stronger to the point where I’m often astonished. And both continue to grow day by day.

Let me tell you about this easy practice and why it works so well.

Latent Inhibition

In his book Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality, Dean Radin discusses the idea of latent inhibition. It’s an unconscious brain process that degrades our ability to pay attention to stimuli that have had no consequences in the past.

In other words, we automatically ignore things that are not critical to the task at hand. It’s what enables us to focus without becoming distracted and overwhelmed with all the millions of pieces of information in our perceptual field at any given time.

Healthy people tend to have high latent inhibition, since the more our sensory awareness is suppressed by what the brain considers irrelevant, the more we remain stable and focused.

Creativity

However, low latent inhibition is associated with the personality trait “openness to experience”, which in turn is associated with divergent thinking and creativity.

Tests done on Harvard graduate students showed that those with high creativity had significantly lower latent inhibition scores than those who were categorized as low creativity.

This underscores the idea that highly creative people have greater access to more of what the world presents.

Expanded Perception

So creativity requires “perceiving outside the box”. This is different than “thinking outside the box”, unless you experience thinking as perceiving a new thought. In my experience, thinking is often directed and active whereas perceiving is receptive. But in a creative state I notice that my thinking goes back and forth between being active and actually receiving ideas.

Creative ideas often come in a flash, and long ago I realize that they are much akin to intuition. In fact they’re so similar that being in a creative or intuitive state is almost — if not exactly — the same thing.

From this perspective, we can better understand why creative people report more psychic experiences. … Most people who believe in psychic phenomena are not ignorant or mentally deficient. They just see farther into the depths of the world than other people do.

~ Dean Radin, Entangled Minds

How to Enhance Your Creativity

Can you choose to lower your latent inhibition and thus expand your levels of perception and creativity?

My experience is definitely yes.

The more I do it, the more information I have conscious access to. My intuition is constantly getting more active and reliable, and I get so many creative ideas I can’t hardly keep up with them.

And all it takes is intention and practice.

3 Things You Can Do This Week

1. A super easy and fun way to practice expanding your perception is this:

When you have a free moment, simply ask yourself

“What am I not noticing?”

If you want more direction than that, then use all your senses, inner and outer, to

a. first check your environment

b. then your body

c. then emotions

d. then thoughts

e. then vibrations.

You’ll be amazed at how many things suddenly come into your awareness!

Some will be things that could be obvious to anyone but some will be very subtle things that you may wonder if you’re really even perceiving as opposed to just imagining.

Trust that you are.

2. Repeat #1 as often as you feel called to. :-)

3. Join us for my free “Summer Activation” next week.

An activation is a group Holographic Emergence™ session that’s done with the intention of activating and boosting a particular thing, in this case — ta da — your creativity! (For more about what an activation is, you can see my “Spring Activation” announcement.)

Details about the activation, including the link to register, will be in this week’s newsletter. (Note: The free activation is for newsletter subscribers only. If you’re not a subscriber yet, then you can sign up here!)

Emergence and Expanding Your Perception

Over time I’ll present (as blog posts) a lot more ways for you to practice and exercise your skills of expanded perception. It’s something that comes into play at several levels of the Emergence process, especially:

1) Entering “the state”

2) Engaging with “the field” (aka playing :-) )

3) Noticing what’s different

Right now I’m in the process of developing a free quick-start kit that will guide you through the process of doing an easy Emergence session on your own. It’s going to be great! Stay tuned for an announcement about its availability.

And now: I’d love to hear what happens when you try the exercise(s) above to expand your awareness. Or maybe you have some suggestions of your own? Do let us know!

One more week and it’s officially Spring!

Does all this fresh new energy have you sprouting new ideas?

Or a brilliant new twist on an old one?

Me too!

Want to help them thrive?

Me too!

Get a Spring Activation

Something I decided to do that’s new for me is to offer a FREE Spring Activation Session to boost your manifestation(s).

Actually, it’s more like a new twist to something I’ve already been doing, since it’s really a group version of my Holographic Emergence Sessions.

I’ve not done a group one yet, but it feels like time!

What Is a Spring Activation?

A Spring Activation Session is a group Holographic Emergence Session where I use my Matrix Energetics skills (primarily) to facilitate whatever it is you want to create or grow this spring.

It’s like a jump-start (if new), or a boost (if ongoing).

We’ll energize it, propel it … give it a new life!

And of course, because you are an integral part of giving it life, we’ll energize you, too.

It’s Quick

I know you’re busy and the good news is that consciousness technology (such as the Matrix Energetics that you’ll experience during the session) is often instantaneous.

So the session itself will only take about 30 min. With a little buffer before and after, you’ll want to allot about 45 min. total. (And maybe the rest of that hour to assimilate, but that’s optional.)

It’s Spontaneous

I can’t tell you a lot more about it because a part of the magic is that I don’t “control” it.

That way, I/we don’t accidentally limit what can manifest. Instead, we open the floodgates for the best possible results.

It’s Fun

What I can tell you is that I’ll use the skills I’ve developed over the past 5 years to invoke what’s needed to facilitate the very best outcome for all of us — then see what shows up.

It’s free-flowing and done in an light-hearted, playful manner.

I’ll also make available any of my other skills (intuitive and/or channeling) in the event they would enhance our experience or outcome.

How to Prepare

All you need to do is:

  1. Decide what project you want to activate
  2. Envision (or write down) your intentions for the project
  3. Show up (i.e. call in) for the live session

That’s it!

When and How

The session will be held via teleconference mid to late next week; exact date and time still TBD. I will pick an auspicious day and time (as per Jyotish) that’s also convenient.

If you haven’t already signed up for my quarterly newsletter, please do so.

That’s the list I’ll use to send the final details (and possibly a registration link).

It’s also a great way to find out about other freebies that I offer exclusively to newsletter subscribers. (For example, whenever I offer a new service or develop a class, subscribers can volunteer to try it for free in exchange for feedback.)

If you really really don’t want to subscribe to my newsletter, that’s okay. Just send me an email and ask me to send you just this next issue for details about the Spring Activation Session.

Share the News

If you have friends who might want to join us, please do share this post with them. The more the merrier. (Buttons below, or forward if you’re reading this in email.) Thank you!

Questions? Comments? Requests? Please ask (or simply add your 2 cents) in the comment section because I’d really love to “see” you at the Activation!


Learn to Channel Your Higher Self

FYI — Just last week, my multi-talented friend Angela Artemis interviewed me for her blog Powered by Intuition. She asked good questions about channeling and it includes a guided exercise to channel your Higher Self that several of the commenters had success with.

Happy Holi!

This week marks a special Vedic holiday to welcome spring.

It’s Holi, the festival of color, and is a two-day event which includes fun and celebration.

It’s a popular holiday in India where people take to the streets with dancing, singing, and throwing of powder paint and colored water.

It coincides with the birthday of Lakshmi, the Goddess of abundance and prosperity.

Vedic holidays are synchronized with the position of the planets which give a precise idea of which energies are manifesting at any given moment.

And this holiday is celebrated as a time to welcome an abundance of all good things into your life.

It’s great if you can take advantage of the support for positive change that’s offered by these special days. Use them to magnify the helpful influences that support improvements in your life.

Holi and Lakshmi Jayanti – Growth & Abundance

Wednesday the 7th is Holika Dahana and holy ceremonies called pujas are performed to celebrate the victory of light over darkness, or good over evil.

Holi continues on Thursday, March 8th as a festival to celebrate new beginnings. It’s an especially good time to win the blessings of the Gods for good harvests and fertility of the land.

Thursday (the day of the full Moon) also happens to be Lakshmi Jayanti, the birthday celebration for Lakshmi, the beloved Goddess of wealth and abundance.

Auspicious Days for New Beginnings

These are very auspicious days for any type of activity including new beginnings.

That means anything you do or begin on these days will be especially blessed for success.

Activate Your Spring!

Speaking of spring and new beginnings …

Spring begins in the Northern Hemisphere on Tues. March 20, 2012, at 1:14 A.M. (EDT).

I will be welcoming it body and soul!

And would you like to have some new spring in your step?

NEW this year, I’m offering something to newsletter subscribers that I’m pretty jazzed about:

FREE!

Holographic Emergence

∞ Spring Activation ∞

It will act as a springboard for whatever intentions you hold during this fertile time of new beginnings.

We’ll do it as a group in a few weeks on a date TBD.

It will be sometime around the equinox and the lunar New Year (which occurs a few days after the equinox this year).

Details and registration information (it will be a teleconference) will be in the next newsletter. (Not on my newsletter list? You can sign up here.)

Many blessings to you during this sacred and powerful time, and best wishes for any new gifts you are opening to accept, or creations you are dreaming of and/or beginning to manifest!

Namasté.

“Get a clue!”, my guidance yelled at me the other day.

At first I thought it had to be my own, chiding voice that pipes in from time to time, but no. The wisdom of the guidance was unmistakable.

Besides that, the signs were obvious. They’d been showing up one after another for weeks, some of them for months.

Get a clue is right.

Apparently, I’d been barreling down a road that I shouldn’t have even been on. And some part of me just didn’t want to admit it.

But I can happily report that I listened. I’m beginning to stroll merrily along a path that is much more fitting with who I am.

Have you ever done that? Found yourself heading the wrong way but not wanting to acknowledge it? Forcing your guidance to have to pull out all the stops?

I want to share a little about the signs I saw along with a few morsels of wisdom from my guide that helped me redirect myself.

The Direction

If you’ve been following the past few months, you know that I’ve adjusted my blog topic and am changing my blogging style.

The soul searching that led to that was prompted in part by a problem I started having with my shoulder. (I could write  a whole series of posts on the details of how that related to my blog. For now, just trust me. It did.)

So this was all well and good, and I had plans for quite a few posts over this next month along with some more Jyotish Tutorial articles. I was looking forward to visiting some blogs I like to read regularly. I was also participating in the Blog with Videos Bootcamp, and getting ready for a trip I’ll be taking this week.

But as I jumped in and began implementing my plans, everything started going awry.

The Signs

Because my left shoulder was so problematic when I used my netbook, I’d started sitting at my desk to work on my desktop computer.

Well, now my other shoulder started acting up from that.

Worse yet, the chair at my desk feels good but it does a number on my back if I sit there too long. Wouldn’t you know, it got my back into such a state that I tweaked it last week and now it’s seriously injured.

Even as this was going on, I got a request by someone that I couldn’t refuse. It involved yet more work at the computer. But I committed anyway, thinking I could use my netbook, just in a different position.

I turned on my netbook and heard a horrible screeching and scraping noise that should never ever come out of a computer. Eeek! I turned it off immediately. (I did some Matrix Energetics on it. I tentatively turned it back on and it’s been fine ever since … but still!)

So, there were a number of issues preventing me from being on the computer more than just an hour or two per day.

On top of that, I somehow got myself into a disfunctional emotional state on a day when I had a lot of computer work to do, mainly writing my planned posts. I just could not bring myself to write.

I was so stressed. I had to write and be at the computer, but I couldn’t.

I just couldn’t.

What to do?

Channeled Guidance

In a state of desperation I decided to try channeling about it.

I got into a channeling state and blubbered to whatever guide would listen. In came a wonderful guide I have who is a master alchemist, and very loving besides.

He sort of lectured me (quite uncommon), and then did a healing session (on the order of a chakra cleanse) that left me trembling for about 20 min. afterward.

But it was just what I needed. I was calm and focused and at peace; and have been fine (and nicely functional) ever since.

Here are a few things he said:

You’ve got to break out of the rules. I’m going to tell you that you’ve got to watch for the “should”s. [Note: I'll get more into this with another post but I noticed a month or so back that my shoulder problems are partly about "shoulds". Should-er. Get it?!]

But part of the joy that you are moving toward with this vacation can only be found if you can not only move into it but unfold it and create it with the consciousness of joy.

And you cannot do that while you are vibrating with the consciousness of stress.

Do what is fun for you this week, period.

You are disfunctional because you have asked to open more to your subtle self. In order to do that you have got to quit living in your old patterns.

Part of your energy system is trying to communicate that to you with ideas such as this but also in other ways. Like not allowing you to do it anymore.

Do you see all the signs?

Get a clue!

Be responsible to your spirit, your fire. This is not what you are supposed to be doing. … You aren’t going to find your way if you’re spending your time stressing out — like you did last year — about your blog.

Surrender

It might sound obvious now but at the time, since I was approaching my blog differently, I didn’t see that in many ways I was still approaching blogging the same.

I didn’t dread it like I used to before my blog changes, but I still had too many expectations and just as much stress around it.

I decided to completely surrender to the circumstances.

Not only that, but to consider what they might be telling me. (For I don’t think circumstances are really “outside” of me. They’re me, having a conversation with myself.) It seemed the least I could do since they had to yell it at me just like my channeling guide had to.

For someone as tenacious as me, surrender was difficult. But it was a relief at the same time.

So I did what I had already committed to (because that’s what I do). I submitted a new Jyotish Tutorial article and met my commitments to the person I didn’t dare say no to.

I still felt I ought to post, even wanted to post, but saw that feeling a need to do it now while so many circumstances were against it was nothing more than a should.

I knew it was time to put my attention on other priorities such as healing my back so I can travel, and getting ready for my trip.

So I did that. I did what I enjoyed; and enjoyed what I did.

And I didn’t stress about anything.

The New Path

Over the past half week, I feel like a new person.

And even though I don’t know exactly where this renewed way of operating will take me, I’m somehow trusting that it will be good. And of course, if it’s not, I can always change course when the time is right. I can respond in the moment.

I did have one challenge yesterday. The husband of a good friend of mine who lives about an hour away is dying as we speak. He’s also a friend and I’m wanting to do whatever I can for them. But with my back condition, I haven’t been able to.

I’d accepted that but yesterday I got word that he was somewhat conscious and coherent.

I wanted so badly to drive down there and visit.

But even as I began to consider it, my back went into intense spasms! Even then, it took me a little while to see the connection and realize that again, my guidance was having to yell at me!

“Knock it off!”, it was saying.

Get a clue!

Today, I remain in surrender. I’m sitting in a comfortable position writing this post. And then I’ll go get my packing done for my trip. I’m fortunate to know how to do distance sessions with my dear friends who are in crisis — perhaps an even better help than being there in person.

And whatever doesn’t work out, just doesn’t work out; and what does, does.

I’m okay with it. It’s not up to me to control everything.

This morning I said a prayer I learned when I was in recovery:

God, I offer myself to Thee, to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt.

Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I might better do Thy will.

I’m not pretending that I know best.

I’m just doing what I can to hear Divine guidance, and then to follow it without kicking and screaming for a change, so that it doesn’t have to scream at me!

And all the while, I get to live in curious anticipation of how it’s going to unfold.

What a much more enjoyable way to live!

P.S. As you might have guessed, I didn’t write the posts I intended to schedule for you during my trip. So! I may not be back here until I physically return in a few weeks. (Anyway, it seems this is long enough to last you til then. Oops!) Of course I’ll be checking in for comments, though, so I’d still love to hear from you!

How about you? Does your guidance ever have to scream at you? How do you understand “surrender”? Where are you with this right now?

Today I did a free session for one the the winners of the Solstice drawing I held at the end of December.

She had her choice of a Channeling, a Holographic Emergence Session, or a Jyotish Prasna reading.

She chose a non-interactive channeling. That’s where she sends her questions to me, I record the session of me connecting with her guide(s) to ask the questions and channel the answers, and then I email her the audio.

Always before doing a session with or for a client, I take a few minutes to prepare.

Sometimes I go through a more elaborate ritual of sorts, but today was just whatever came up in the moment.

During the process I got the idea to share today’s few-minute preparation with you … So here it is.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

A few things you’ll hear in this 4-minute audio are:
- Turning on my intuitive “radio”
- Confirmation that things were shifting
- Doing Matrix Energetics, specifically a 2-point
- Setting my intention for the session
- Receiving guidance about an additional intention for this session
- Confirmation that I was ready to go

I also prepare the environment and do an invocation but that’s done in the beginning of the actual channeling session. This is just an example of a pre-session preparation of myself to line up my energy system for the process.

Enjoy.

And of course, as always, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

P.S. If you missed the drawing, why don’t you sign up for my newsletter, get my posts in your feed reader, follow me on twitter, or like LsB on facebook? That way, you’ll always know about my specials and periodic giveaways.

We all have questions, all the time. Some are more important than others.

Here’s a simple process you can play with to easily get answers to them, even the important ones. Maybe you won’t get answers all of the time, but you will some of the time, and sometimes they are so profound you can hardly believe they came to you so easily.

(And no, the process isn’t channeling, even though I’m about to open my story with  that.)

A Question Asked

Over the holidays, as part of my decision to stay in touch with my intuitive side as much as possible, I decided I would channel on a regular basis. (When I first learned to channel I did it every day for months. But that fell off as it got to where I didn’t “have” to do that anymore, and could always connect at will even with longer gaps in-between).

If you’ve ever channeled or even participated while someone else is channeling, you know that during the session you usually get into a slightly altered state. In this state, your questions suddenly become unimportant to you because you somehow know that all is well, or you at least get a different perspective on your life where you don’t feel as threatened or desperate, and you don’t feel a need for anything, including answers to your questions.

Sometimes, when I channel for myself, I simply forget my questions since I’m operating from a different part of my being than my rational.

So as I mulled over what questions I could ask that were relevant to my life (since those are the most powerful evokers of answers), one glaring question came to my attention.

It’s not really the point of this story but it was about betrayal, something that seems to be a pattern in my life. Betrayal (sometimes simply abandonment which is a form of betrayal) by best friends, by regular friends, by family members, by institutions, by the government, by the so-called justice system, etc. But big time, life-shaking betrayal. No matter how well I think I’ve processed through it, the pain of it periodically comes back to haunt me, sometimes at the most inconvenient or unexpected times. Well, I’d been grappling with it again over the holidays.

So I wrote it down on a sticky note:

Betrayal: How to process?

And I went about my holiday break, fully intending to ask that the next time I channeled.

An Answer Revealed

Well, I didn’t channel over the next few days but I noticed that there were some thoughts that would appear in my mind now and then, usually when I was doing rather mindless things. An idea was developing, seemingly on its own and out of the blue.

By about the 3rd day I realized that not only was it a complete model that was presenting itself to me, but that it was in response to my question!

As soon as I realized this, I also felt guided to write it down, too; just like I had my question. It seemed to be a part of the process of earthing it, and bringing it fully into my life. Sometimes when I do a similar thing, the idea clarifies itself as I write, but in this situation that wasn’t necessary. It was all there, clear as day, right from the start … all fresh, and alive, and very very relevant.

Note: I can’t wait to tell you what the idea/model was that revealed itself. It so totally answered my question, and then some. In fact, just assimilating the answer completely processed the betrayals for me. And I haven’t looked back. So far, it just isn’t an issue anymore. (Of course it’s only been a few weeks, but still. It feels significantly different.)

However, as part of my new leaf, I don’t want my posts to get too long, so what was revealed to me will have to wait until another day. (Are you familiar with the acronym TL;DR? Too long; didn’t read. Gotta love it as I never read super long posts, and I sure don’t expect you to!)

The point of this post is not what I found out, but that if you present your question to the Universe, to Source, to your Higher Self — who or whatever that part of you is that knows the answer that is most appropriate for you to hear at this timeyou’ll get an answer.

Get Answers With This Simple (Yet Powerful) Process

There are lots of ways to do it but I am especially enamoured by this one right now. :-)

Here it is:

1. Do you have a burning question right now? One that you really want an answer to? See if you can clarify what it is.

2. Write it down. This is optional but is helpful in the beginning. Just make sure you do something to explicitly ask it, though.

3. Pay attention. See what unfolds. The answer may be prompted by things in your environment (anything from normal, everyday activities to unusual “signs”), or it may simply be whispered to you in your mind or heart. It may come quickly or over the period of days or weeks.

4. Acknowledge the answer. Appreciate it. Apply it.

That’s it!

It’s deceptively simple. Don’t let that persuade you that it can’t do heavy lifting.

I used this process a few more times over my break and again got really great answers, and some very quickly. And the best thing about them is that they were more about teaching me to fish than feeding me one, you know? In other words, I was given a new way of seeing or thinking instead of just one answer to get me by until next time.

Pretty cool if you ask me.

I’d love to hear if you’ve ever tried this. Or if you’re willing to try it and report your results. Or maybe you have a better, easier way to get answers?

If you’re going to be separated from your pet for any length of time, you’ll find peace of mind in knowing that you really can “talk” with them about it beforehand, as well as connect with them while you’re apart.

It’s natural, and not all that difficult.

When we’d had our first yellow lab for about a year, we left him behind when we went on vacation. It happened to be the day after we reprimanded him for eating a sandwich off the coffee table. We took him to the boarding kennel the next day, said goodbye, and flew off to Hawaii.

We returned 10 days later and picked him up at the kennel. He was more than ecstatic. Even as we were getting into the car he was still licking us, squeaking, and panting.

Just as we all settled in for the hour-long drive home, it hit me — and it wasn’t just a thought. I literally felt it like a stab in the heart as I realized he thought we had abandoned him.

He had no idea we were coming back for him. I knew this with certainty. Immediately I began crying and trying to explain to him that we would never leave him like that. But by then he’d already gone through 10 days thinking we had.

Never ever did I want to do that to him again.

I didn’t know until years later that I didn’t have to. That I could communicate with him ahead of time in a way that he would understand, and know that we were coming back for him — and even when. (In fact, you can touch in with them from far away too, even while you’re separated.)

The main technique is that of speaking to them in pictures as you learned in part 3 of this series.

And you’ll feel more confident that you’re actually connecting if you take the time to practice the exercise from part 1 as well.

Before You Separate

If you know ahead of time that you’ll be separated, that’s ideal. Even if you only have a few minutes, that’s enough in most cases. For complex situations there are several actions you can take that take more time, but for the most part what you need to do is pretty quick.

The general idea is to prepare your pet for what they’ll experience while you’re separated. There are lots of aspects of this.

1. Length of time

Think about how you experience time, how they experience time, and then how you can put that into pictures.

If it’s hours, you might show them you’re gone until you come home and feed them dinner. Or maybe you’re gone until it gets dark. See them at home while it’s light; imagine it getting a little darker, then see and hear your car returning home.

If it’s days, see it getting dark, then light, then dark, then light again (for however many days it will be).

Some animal communicators say that animals can understand numbers, e.g. I’ll be back in 3 days. I don’t disbelieve that but if you want to do that I suggest you also use visuals along with it, at least until you have a sense your pet understands.

2. People and places

Imagine the people your pet will likely encounter. If you know what they look like, all the better. Sometimes you don’t (for example, if you’re boarding a pet there may be various people at the kennel). You can imagine people while you think consciously of the concept that there will be a lot of people around.

If they’ll be home, or maybe in a boarding environment, show them that too.

FEEL and project the idea of safety while you show them where they’ll be, with whom, and their daily routine.

3. Activities

You may be aware of some of the activities your pets will experience. If so, play them out in detail if you can.

Again, the most important thing is that you FEEL safe and calm. See them having fun and enjoying themselves. If you just can’t imagine it being pleasant for them, then see if you can feel them experiencing it as an adventure.

It can be especially helpful to anticipate the things that may upset your pet and play through those with that sense of safety. For example, if your animal will be traveling by plane without you, play through the noise and commotion of a busy airport, what it might feel like in the cargo hold, etc. All the while, assure your pet they are safe.

4. Reunion

Most importantly, see the two of you being reunited. Do this last, so that what you are telling them is as much in order as you can make it.

Don’t worry about every little detail being right or even that everything be in perfect order.

You just want to get the general ideas and feelings communicated to them. That’s enough, as that’s a lot! Most pets don’t get the luxury of anything even close to this kind of connection.

While You’re Separated

If you’re just separated for a short time (e.g. hours), you don’t need to do anything to reconnect unless you want to or unless your pet suffers separation anxiety.

But if it’s a longer period of time, it can help to check in periodically.

1. Connect

When you have a quiet moment (eventually, you don’t even need it to be quiet), just connect with them. Use a photo of them if it will help.

2. Visualize

And then simply repeat some of the things you communicated above, all the while feeling a calm sense of safety and contentment.

Stay Calm Yourself

A lot of people are so connected with their pets and vice versa that they worry whenever they’ll be separated for a long period of time or during unusual situations.

This is one of the worst things you can do.

It really helps them if you remember that you have done everything you can to keep them safe and happy and the final ingredient in that being possible is for YOU to feel calm and happy about it all.

They do sense that and it does make a difference.

Take a look at part 2 of this series for some ideas of ways to think about it which will help you both be more at peace while you’re apart.

More Practical Tips

This isn’t specific to Animal Communication but here are some other things that can help you both feel more calm too.

1. Acclimate them

Whatever you can get them used to ahead of time: do!

Whether it’s the people they’ll be with, crates they may travel in, certain foods they’ll be eating, environments they’ll be in, etc. Do whatever you can to expose them to those things for short periods of time and in a calm manner.

And make them positive experiences as much as you can. Maybe give them treats during or after if that makes sense.

2. Leave them a reminder of you

If possible, leave something of yours with them while you’re separated. This is especially good for dogs or cats, who rely so much on their sense of smell. So, for example, a t-shirt you’ve worn or a blanket you’ve used can go with them in their crate or to the kennel.

3. Use Rescue Remedy

Use Bach Rescue Remedy during and after. You can have a caretaker put it in their food or water just like they would a medicine. Or if you’re leaving them with a blanket or t-shirt, you can spray it with Rescue Remedy beforehand.

Afterwards it helps them process any kind of trauma they may have experienced.

This is a lot to absorb at once and I’ve only scratched the surface, but I’m sure you can use your own creativity to expand these ideas to fit whatever situation you might be facing. That’s half the fun of it, after all!

Let me know if you have any questions. Or if you have experiences with this kind of thing, or other suggestions, please let us all know.

Thanks for reading, and happy holidays to you … and your pets!

Are you so inspired you can hardly keep up with yourself? Or are you the type to investigate everything, analyzing the pros and cons? Maybe you react emotionally and intuitively to your world, or maybe a big priority is that things be practical and useful.

Whatever characteristic is prominent or whatever mixture you have of these qualities, thinking of them in terms of the 4 elements of fire, earth, air, and water can be eye-opening.

[If you're just joining us, some of us are working Sonia Choquette's free on-line course together here, week by week. You're welcome to jump in any time!]

The Four Elements in Your Birth Chart

As Sonia talked about the elements of earth, air, fire, and water as they relate to our spirits, I couldn’t help but relate that to jyotish (Vedic astrology) because our birth charts give us a direct picture of what Sonia calls our spirits.

Whatever element is predominant in our charts is indicative of our personalities, including our hidden and/or more subtle attributes that we aren’t necessarily aware of.

You (and your chart) may have a strong emphasis on one or two elements, or maybe a good balance of all of them. You likely have one element operating in one area of life, yet a different one in another area.

Your Rising Sign as Indicator

In jyotish, much depends on what was rising at the moment you were born. This is called your Ascendant, or Lagna.

You can use this calculator to find out what your Ascendant is. (Note, jyotish uses the sidereal zodiac so your rising sign is probably different than your rising sign in Western astrology).

And then, depending on what you find, here’s what element will be most reflected in your psyche:

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius: Fire (Vision)

  • Inspired
  • Live in future: mythological
  • Volatile, unpredictable
  • Intuitive
  • Mundane bores
  • Idealistic

Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn: Earth (Reality)

  • Practical
  • Sensual
  • Realistic
  • Pragmatic
  • At home with your body

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius: Air (Harmony)

  • Mental
  • Rely on reason, logic
  • Curious, interested
  • Intellectual and live in world of ideas
  • Communicator
  • Connector

Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces: Water (Fluidity)

  • Emotional
  • Move with instinct
  • Motivated by feeling
  • Relates to touch, feeling, images, symbols, color, music
  • Intuitive
  • Empathic

Of course, your whole chart (and what it represents) is more complex than just looking at your Ascendant but this can give an indication that’s pretty reliable in most cases.

Help With Decisions

Just like Sonia says, the more you know about your spirit (or your tendencies and aspirations as indicated by your chart), the more you’re able to make informed decisions and choices that will support you and your spirit.

I’d also recommend that you keep in mind that to everything there is a season, and what I’ve found in my life and what I know from being a jyotishi is that one element might predominate during one part of our life, yet another one later. Do you have a sense of that as you’ve changed and grown?

Any other comments about this week’s lesson?

Note: This week I did something slightly different and broke this into two separate articles. This first was about the lesson, the next will be about the practice. Even though Sonia created a bit of a bridge between the two, the lesson and the practice brought up two separate ideas for me. Stay tuned for part 2 in a few days.

If you have a pet that you need to have behave in a certain way, you can appreciate the value in having a supportive or reinforcing technique handy.

Here’s an extremely useful one that you can use in lots of situations.

Speak With Pictures

We’ve already talked about communicating telepathically with your pet using any or all of your senses.

When you imagine a scenario you want to encourage, you can and should continue to use other senses, but one of the easiest and most effective ways to get a telepathic message to your pet is to use your visual sense to create pictures.

(And note that the ideas I’m giving here for vision can still apply to other senses too.)

To Encourage Positives

Typically, when we want to relay a message or suggestion, it’s something good or something we want our pet to do.

When this is the case, simply imagine in your mind’s eye what that looks like, literally.

You can experiment with doing it from your point of view, and also from your pet’s perspective.

To Discourage Negatives

When there’s something you don’t want them to do or you want them to stop doing, it gets a little trickier, but only because you have to get creative yourself.

The idea is to turn it around into what you want them to do instead, and then imagine that in your mind’s eye.

So, for example, if you don’t want your dog to go into the street, see them stopping at the sidewalk. You might even see them turning around at the sidewalk and coming back to the house. (Note I’m not saying to do this instead of training or other practical restraint measures! It’s done as an adjunct with them in situations like this.)

Or if you don’t want them to bark when someone comes to the door, what do you want them to do instead? Think about that and imagine it in every detail.

A Few Other Tips

Whenever you’re encouraging a new behavior, it’s helpful to take an extra moment to see (in your mind’s eye) your pet getting some congratulations, affection, or a treat right after they do what you want them to do. And then, when they do it, give them that! Besides reinforcing the behavior, it helps confirm to them that you were, indeed, “talking” to them.

As to senses other than visual, you can also give commands from a distance (in your mind) if your pet is already responsive to those commands. And even though “No” is a negative, if they already are responsive to that, don’t hesitate to use it especially in a dangerous situation.

As with any kind of training, it’s good to repeat the practice lots of times before it’s actually needed, or intersperse it with times when it’s needed.

An Example: Discourage then Encourage

Our boxer (God rest her sweet soul) used to be very protective of us when we were in our outdoor jacuzzi at night.

She would go off barking to all corners of our property, and it was annoying not only to us but I’m sure to the neighbors, too.

The problem was, she was getting old and losing her hearing, so even whistling for her had become futile.

So we decided to use telepathy.

We used a mixture of different techniques, but it went something like this:

1. We calmed ourselves down, so that we truly were okay instead of distressed about her barking. Otherwise she would sense anxiety from us, making her anxious or making her think we were in a distressing situation where we need her protection.

2. We made a deliberate connection by thinking her name as if she were right next to us and we were getting her attention.

3. We imagined what we wanted, which was for everything to be very quiet. I would put myself “inside” her and feel myself just being quiet and calm, i.e. not barking. (Discouragement from barking.)

4. Then we would telepathically issue the “Come” command. She was a very obedient dog, but for good measure I would then …

5. Envision her returning to where we were. I would do this either from her perspective (imagining myself, as her, coming up the hill and across the driveway) or from our perspective (seeing her come around the corner of the house toward us), or both. (Encouragement to return to the house.)

It worked! It worked immediately and repeatedly. It was amazing even to us how responsive she was, but I’m sure that was at least partly due to the fact that a few years before we had all made an agreement of sorts that we would play with communicating that way. She enjoyed it and yet this shows that she also took it seriously.

So don’t forget about all these great modes of communication you have available.

Try them out, and practice them until you see for yourself how well they work. They not only enrich your relationship, but they can be an important means of communicating in serious situation.

Note: This is the 3rd in a series about communicating with your pet energetically (mainly telepathically). The skills are best developed in order. Here are the previous articles:

1. The Very First Step in Communicating With Your Pet
2. Worried About Your Pet? 5 Steps Toward Peace of Mind
