Do You Dare Live Your Dreams?

You have to grow into your dreams.

You can’t achieve your hopes, desires, and goals unless you are willing to take risks, be uncomfortable, learn new things, and follow your inner voice.

Otherwise, you’ll just keep getting the same things you’ve already got.

No one achieves their dreams without moving into what a great little book called the Frogship Perspective terms Zones Unknown.

If you know what you want, then go after it with unwavering tenacity. When one door refuses to open or suddenly closes, try something else and keep your eyes open for the door that is wide open beckoning your entry.

Opportunities are right in front of you all the time. You just have to grow personally and spiritually enough to “register” that they are there. Then you have to muster up the courage to take the plunge or scale the mountain like the woman in the image.

Here’s to your courage!

Have a deLightful day,

Takara

P.S. The Frogship Perspective is a gem of a book by Dean Black. Its full of sage advice with stories that bring the teaching home. I highly recommmend it.

Welcome Home to Your Oneness by The Merlin through David J. Adams

(c) David J. Adams

PENDRAGON MEDITATION CIRCLE 28th May 2012

THE MERLIN THROUGH DAVID J ADAMS

“WELCOME HOME TO YOUR ONENESS”

Without opening your eyes, I ask you to embrace the light flickering on the table in front of you, sensing deep within yourself the myriad of colours the lights project, bathing yourself in Light, feeling that Light deep within your Heart, uplifting every aspect of your Being, feeling the denseness melting away, as the Light of Higher Dimensional frequencies radiate through you, reaching deep inside and finding the magnet of the Light at the centre of your Being.

For you are a magnet for all Light, a storage unit for all Light, a receiver and a transmitter of all Light, and as you embrace and radiate that Light, the denseness, the heaviness of your Being is melted away, and you feel yourself becoming ONE with your Higher Self, embracing your ‘Soul knowing’, embracing the highest frequencies of Divine Love.

The more Light you attract into yourself, the more Light you radiate forth. The more Light you radiate forth, the more you change your environment. As you change your environment by enlightening your environment, you begin to create the New Earth of Divine Light and Divine Love.

Greetings Dear Hearts, I am The Merlin. I am delighted and excited to be sharing with you at this time the monumental change that is taking place upon the Earth Planet.

I refer to you as ‘Dear Hearts’ because now we speak only to your Heart, for your Heart understands what your mind cannot comprehend. Allow all words, all images, all visions to move through your Hearts.

When we speak to you of change, we do not speak of a single event. We speak of a gradual process of evolvement, a movement into the higher forms of Light and the deepest most radiant forms of Love.

Because it is an evolvement, Dear Hearts, it is not an instant change. There will be times during this, and future years, when you will be moving in and out of new realities and old realities.

Change is subtle but powerful, and we have sought in recent messages, to address some of those changes – changes in perspective and perception, changes in attitude, all of which grow and begin to create the changes that will become perceptible to most upon the Earth Planet.

One of the major changes, Dear Hearts, is the movement from your mind into your Heart as your guidance system for the remainder of your time in your physical vessel, and you will find that many things occur in your lives that do not make sense to you, and your mind will continue to say “why?, or what does this mean?” and I ask you, Dear Hearts, to bring that down into your Heart.

It is not necessary for your mind to understand. Everything that is brought to you at this time in your lives is part of your journey of Ascension, and once you know this and accept this, you lose the need to understand and give meaning to what is occurring.

Treat them, Dear Hearts, as miracles within your lives. Do not try to judge them on the basis of what has been in the past, for these are all a part of your coming together into oneness, for that is another aspect of the change – the movement from Duality into Oneness, the movement from Separateness into Unity.

You are bringing together your multi dimensional selves into oneness. You are beginning to embrace your soul families once again, and although your mind may not understand how this will operate, accept it, allow yourself to flow joyfully with what will be occurring in your lives.

Do not hold onto fear. Do not hold onto pain – embrace the Light within your Hearts, and see all that occurs within your life as a part of the joyfulness of your existence.

Many of you will know through your mythology that the Merlin is an arbiter of change, a practitioner of magic, but the magic is within each and every one of you, Dear Hearts. It begins with the Enlightenment within your Heart, and it manifests in changes in your path – changes you may not have foreseen, but changes I invite you to embrace with great Love, with great Joy, for there is no going back to the old ways. Look always forward through your Heart.

We have given you this message many times in this linear year. Look at your life through your Hearts. Do that now.

Embrace the Light within your Heart,

Radiate that Light, that you may co-create the path ahead of you.

I can assure you, Dear Hearts, the journey will be worthwhile, for the time of separateness is past, and we of other Dimensions reach out to embrace you, and we say “WELCOME HOME TO YOUR ONENESS”.

Essence of Oneness ~ an Amazing New Frequency from Dancing Dolphin Essences

Oneness – a state of enlightenment, harmony, peace, and bliss. 

Achieve a state of oneness with the Essence of Oneness by Dancing Dolphin Essences.
Being in a State of Oneness

It is that which you seek ~ the promised land, heaven on earth, Nirvana ~ when you are in harmony with all things, receiving pure (untainted) information and inspiration from God (your guidance system, your Higher Self), the actions you take lead directly to the attainment of your desires. You bring harmony, realignment, and bliss to others with your Presence. You are your Higher Self, walking on planet earth doing your daily life, uplifting humanity and the earth through the vibration of who you have become. When you are in a state of Oneness, you are the Avatar, Enlightened One, or Christed Self. You have attained your Buddahood.

To be in Oneness within self means that your body, mind (conscious, subconscious, and superconscious), emotions, & soul are in perfect alignment, peace, and harmony with one another. You need nothing outside yourself to feel whole, loved, or joy filled. All body, mind, and soul systems, all desires, all actions function as one without conflict.

To be one with all things ~ people, circumstances, your environment, the earth, the universe ~ means you can: 

  • feel what it is to be the tree, 
  • see through the eyes of the jaguar, 
  • soar above the earth as the eagle, 
  • feel the soothing calmness of being a placid lake, or 
  • experience the raging power of the hurricane,
  • merge with the earth and the Universe as if you are that
  • feel the Presence and guidance of God as close as your breath.

A Magical Journey to Yogaville, Initiation, New Energies and More

Sometimes I feel so blessed tears well up in my eyes. The last few months  have been so full of wonder that I’ve been moved to tears on more than one occasion.

The story I’m about to share includes a fairly profound transformational experience. May the energy of this event touch and empower you as well.

Since returning from Fiji about a year and a half ago, my life seems to be flying past at lightning speed. Days and weeks melt into one another.

As I was finishing up the writing of Peering Through the Veil, I was also writing the first half of 2 of the books in the New Dance series. The first is about Awakening. The second is what I term The Platinum Principle. I know that the energy and information around this principle is one of my primary purposes for being here.

Who I am and what I do requires that I continuously grow in consciousness and awareness and move ever higher in vibration, becoming more and more the voice, energy, and embodiment of the Divine Feminine. In order to do that, I often am taken through wild experiences and energetic shifts.

People I don’t even know sometimes send me crystals and gems. When I was living on the yacht in Fiji, a woman I’d never heard of from Israel contacted me by email. She began sending me the most amazing dragon jade beads and other rare stones as soon as I got back to the states. I’ve created energetic elixirs with each of them. Later in the newsletter, you’ll read about what wonderful product several of them ended up in.

For years I’ve been jolted awake in the middle of the night with inspiration to create something or write something down. I’ll be in the middle of working on the computer or having a conversation, and I’ll get an intuitive “hit” to google something or go somewhere. I pay attention to every one of these little “whims” that others might not even notice. Each time I follow the inspiration, and each time I invariably come across an important bit of information or I meet someone with another piece to the puzzle.

Its as if every experience I’ve ever had, every bit of information I’ve learned is a thread. As I follow these intuitive promptings, the threads are being pulled together creating a beautiful tapestry. Each thing fits beautifully with everything else. Things from the past and the present that seem completely unrelated, turn out to be equally important in whatever I’m being guided to create or understand.

Its a truly magical process and I’ve learned to simply trust. There is no way that I could ever figure out what’s about to happen, so I’ve stopped bothering to try. I just follow the little whims and watch in awe as things unfold.

Several weeks ago I received an email from my dear Sister of the Heart, Andi Goldman. It was such an honor to have her write the forward for Peering Through the Veil.

My relationship with Andi is very much like my relationship with Millie Stefani and a few others in my inner circle. It can best be described as love at first sight. Not a romantic or amorous type of love. But the kind between sisters. Yet not the kind from blood relatives, but a sisterhood that stretches back over eons. When you encounter one another there is such a love and a recognition of “knowing” the other that your heart literally sings. When Andi and I get together, we sometimes get so giddy in one another’s presence that we just seem to smile all over and giggle like school girls. It is deLightful to be in her presence.

Anyway, with our schedules we rarely get to see one another or even have the opportunity to talk on the phone. So it was wonderful to hear from her by email.

In the message she invited me to Yogaville for a weekend workshop that she and Jonathan were giving on Chakra Frequencies and The Divine Name. I had such a wonderful time 2 years ago when they were there before.

At first I didn’t think it was something that I could fit into my schedule. But as it got closer to the date, I suddenly felt absolutely sure that it was something I really needed to do. I realized it was on Wesak weekend. I couldn’t imagine being in a better place for the energies of Wesak than with my dear friends Jonathan and Andi at Yogaville.

Yogaville is an ashram in the rolling hills of Virginia that was established by Sri Swami Satchadananda. I’m not sure how many acres it covers, but there is a lovely main courtyard with buildings all around that include housing from private rooms to those that are shared, a bookstore, a library, administrative offices, numerous meeting and yoga rooms, and a large facility for shared meals and evening presentations. A bit away from this complex is the famous Lotus Light Shine which is an architectural marvel that looks literally like a Lotus.

I arrived on Friday and checked into my room. I ended up in a room with 2 bunk beds and a shared bath across the hall. Two other ladies shared the room with me. They were both attending a different workshop so I rarely saw them throughout the weekend.

The workshop was beautiful, engaging, and uplifting. I love moving energy with my voice and Jonathan and Andi are so wonderful at teaching people how to do that. The energies build all weekend until everyone is totally buzzing with energy by the time its over on Sunday.

When I attended the workshop 2 years ago, I quickly developed a friendship with a woman from North Carolina who was also taking Andi and Jonathan’s workshop. We spent the entire weekend talking during breaks and walking together to meals and to all the workshop sessions.

This time, even though I was in a shared room, and I talked to several people during the meals, I didn’t feel I was really connecting deeply with anyone. It felt kind of odd not really having anyone to share with while I was there.

Whenever I am with Jonathan and Andi when they are teaching a workshop, I try to stay very conscientious of their time and attention. I know what its like to keep a workshop going session after session. It takes a lot of energy and focus, so I try not to monopolizing their time. We talk briefly before and after sessions, but typically that’s it. So I was pretty much on my own.

By Sunday morning I was beginning to wonder why I had needed to come. The class was wonderful and seeing Jonathan and Andi is always such a blessing. But neither accounted for the intensity of my knowing about my need to be there.

I saw Jonathan as I was getting breakfast. I was about to sit down to eat when Jonathan came over and whispered in my ear. He asked me what I was doing at 3 p.m. He and Andi were doing a special ceremony at the Ashram and were only allowed to invite 2 guests to attend. They wanted me to be there.

I whispered back that of course I would be wherever they needed me to be at 3 p.m. I’d already checked out of my room and had no plans once the workshop ended around noon. As he walked away, tears welled up in my eyes as I finally understood why I’d been compelled to be there that weekend.

At the close of the workshop, Andi introduced me and personally handed samples of the Divine Name Essence out to each of those in attendance. I shared a little about the Dancing Dolphin products and the collaboration Jonathan and I have with the Essence of Sound product line.

Several of the people who took the workshop asked me questions about the products during lunch. And I finally felt like I made a new friend that lives pretty close to where I live.

One woman suddenly asked me if I ever made gem essences. I told her that I’d made over 70 crystal and gem essences and I was always making something new.

She said she had this amazing chimera – a naturally occurring crystal made of  ruby, spectrolite, and hemitite – and would love for me to make an essence out of it. I started asking her questions trying to determine how to get the crystal in order to make the essence. It turns out that she had it there at the Ashram. So we went to her room and she handed me the 3 lb. sphere. Here this woman was giving me this outrageous stone to take home with me and I didn’t even know her name. Obviously we exchanged contact information and I wrapped it safely inside a very fluffy beach towel I happened to have in my trunk.

I later did a google search and discovered that chimera was only recently found in a remote location in Tibet and is only available in limited quantities. Her sphere is truly a fabulous stone. The day I got it was Wesak. After the ceremony with Jonathan and Andi I took it home and placed it in sacred water to begin the essence creation process.

Andi, Jonathan, another friend of theirs and I were met by three of the residents of Yogaville for the ceremony. We entered a special candle-lit room at the Ashram and for the next 2 1/2 hours we sat facing one another toning, singing, humming, sometimes in silence and occasionally giggling. The geometry and acoustics of the room combined with the energies of those present and was enhanced by the energy of Wesak. What was produced was a truly extraordinary, life altering experience. It feels like I’ve jumped a couple of octaves from that experience alone.

Whatever happened that day, on all the levels that it happened on, I may never truly understand. I do know that the “tuning” and upgrade I received was necessary in order for me to create the Essence of Oneness you can read about in another post from this month’s newsletter.

Wesak and the solar eclipse in May, the lunar eclipse today, the venus transit this week, and summer solstice coming up are all blasting with new energies. Ride the waves and use the energy to go further than you ever have before!

Have a deLightful day,

Takara

Multivitamins, Multiple Choices

c) Misty Gregg

Are you in the 1% of American adults who gets all the nutrients you need from the food you eat?  If not, join the rest of us!  The Anarem Report, a government National Food Consumption Survey of over 21,500 individuals, reported that not one single person consumed 100% of the recommended daily value for the following studied nutrients:  Protein, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-12 and Magnesium.  This report came out several years ago, but I would guess if they did the same study today, the results would be similar.

Some of the nutrients we expect to be in our food are not there.  Why?  Nutrients are lost in a variety of ways such as:  shipping, pasteurization, canning, freezing and cooking.   The problem is your body still needs them.

A great analogy would be a car; a car needs gasoline, oil and other fluids to run properly.  If we put coffee in the gas tank, yes it is a liquid, but it is not what the car needs…same thing when we eat processed foods.  They are empty calorie foods and even though we feel full, our body still needs the missing nutrients.

Why would we believe there is no connection between what we eat and how our body functions???  Even if we eat a healthy diet, we might be missing some of the key nutrients our body needs. 100+ years ago, many people had farms and grew most of their food or they purchased fresh, local food.  This meant that people ate a variety of foods depending on what was in season.  In turn, they got many of the key nutrients on a regular basis.

If we are not getting all the nutrients our body needs from our food, adding nutritional supplements can support our diet.  But, “the buyer beware,” because not all vitamins are created equally.  When selecting vitamins, it is important to check the company and their products for safety and efficacy.  Look for a company who provides scientific date with quality testing.  Ask if the company can make available their clinical research studies and are they published in peer-reviewed journals.  Many vitamins contain synthetic ingredients, preservatives and they are made from chemicals rather than food.  Some others are made with a combination of products and can be unbalanced.  I would recommend vitamins made from whole foods that are cold pressed, so as not to cook out any of the nutrients.  This type of supplement will help when you need a little extra nutrition to support a busy lifestyle!

Moonstone – the Healing Power of Gems and Crystals

(c) AnnaMariah

Moonstone and its ever changing play of light conjure up images of the shimmering moon. That shimmering quality is called “adularescence” and speaks of shifting feelings and emotions and a sense of magic of the deepest kind, the Divine Feminine.

One of the greatest strengths of the Divine Feminine is the ability to allow and encompass emotions, not as something to be shoved down, but as something to be embraced and allowed to flow. With that flow, you shift into the truth of who you are, more in touch with your purpose and destiny with constant gentle guidance along the way. Your emotions and your heart can guide you well in your life if you listen to their wisdom.

In our fast paced world it’s easy to get caught up in the rush and fall out of synch with your dreamy feminine side. When that happens, you begin to give your mind more credence in helping to guide you and get off track with your life. I heard some of you say in horror, “What? No, my mind will always be true and to be my guiding light. It’s emotions that aren’t to be trusted”. I disagree.

Our emotions are connected to our heart, the depth of who we are, not only here in this world, but eternally, connected to the wisdom of all our lives and futures. Our emotions are a way for our higher self, soul, or guidance to speak to us.

Moonstone takes you deep into your unconscious, the place where all possibilities exist, the source of your deepest, most primal and ancient of powers. Some fear going into this place or inner wisdom and perhaps rightly so, it’s possible to get immersed in this element, forgetting or discounting the “real world”.  Balance is needed, don’t discount your mind, but allow it to work in conjunction with your divine feminine. Moonstone can help you with that, guiding you as a beacon towards what you need to know and what is yours to do. Use the light of the moonstone to guide you, inspire and enchant you.

Many women and men fear delving too deeply into their feelings and emotions. If you are afraid to acknowledge or experience your own personal, internal feelings, then try working with or wearing moonstone. The energy of moonstone allows you to accept and understand deep, sometimes confusing emotions, in a way that accesses the wisdom of the emotion, and consequently soothes the feeling or fear of being overwhelmed by emotions.

Are you struggling with finding the right timing – feeling like it’s hard to know when to act or wait? Connect to the tides and rhythms of your life. This stone teaches you to identify current stage of your creation and act appropriately for proper nurturance. Stress and anxiety lessen as you allow your feminine energy to bring balance and harmony to your world.

Are you feeling that the lessons of life or the suffering around you are hardening you, making you less receptive to love and intuition? Moonstone will bring softness, but softness is NOT weakness. In softness you allow. You allow love in. You allow your intuition to flow. You allow your discernment and creativity to surface.

Wearing this magical stone, you move and live in a state of grace that allows those around you to relax in your presence, reducing strife and the “head-butting” that can occur when you move too strongly into your masculine side.Any dominant male attributes will be balanced with some feminine qualities. Moonstone helps you achieve a balance between your heart and mind, yet maintaining a sense of nurturing, and sensitivity to what it means to be human.

One weakness of moonstone is that it’s a fairly soft stone, with a harness of 6 on the Mohs scale. They should be handled with care, just like emotions, they are sensitive. Over time, if your stone dulls, you can take it to a jeweler to have its original shimmer restored.

Moonstone comes in a wide variety of color (and price). The more intense the color, and the more transparent, the more highly valued (costly) the stone is. Traditionally moonstone is almost transparent with a bluish shimmer. One of my personal favorites is the rainbow moonstone as all those colors bring forth a wider variety of experience and healing, it’s almost like wearing a variety of stones, but with a more focused, accessible energy.

Recently new varieties of moonstone have begun to be found in green, brown, orange, black, red, grey and champagne. I’ve even found a few that are purplish. It’s the play of light and ever changing quality that makes this stone so distinctive and, even a little sensual. The basic qualities of moonstone are present in all the varieties of moonstone, yet each also brings additional elements depending on the colors: green – heart, brown – grounding the feminine into the Earth plane, orange – creativity, red – sensuality and passion, champagne – peace, black and grey – mystery and depth. The black and grey versions speak of ancient ritual and “bring down the moon” a practice of bringing the energy of the moon into your body and honoring the goddess.

When choosing a moonstone, pay attention to how you feel when you hold it (or behold it if looking online) if you feel your heart expand or a sudden smile on your face, this just may be your stone. When you wear it, take a moment to connect with its gentle power and honor the divine feminine, goddess within, relaxing into the flow allowing yourself to be gently guided throughout your day.
