Energy Healers, Shamans … And Knowing Who to Trust

Energy Healers Shsman

Energy Healers and Shaman

Most spiritual seekers have had an energy healing session of one form or another. Perhaps they have had some sort of color sound therapy, or seen a shaman or other medicine person for a soul retrieval or other process. They have probably had a Reiki session or even been trained in that modality. Typically those seeking energy healing assistance are looking to heal something physically or mentally/emotionally. Or perhaps they want to break through a pattern in which they feel stuck in one or more areas of life. 
I had a spiritual awakening back in 1993. Almost immediately I found books by Stuart Wilde who then became my first spiritual teacher. And I found Karen Schweitzer of the Body Mind Center in Reading, PA, who soon became not only a dear friend, but my go-to energy healer and spiritual adviser for many years. Week after week I went for Reiki sessions, her unique form of past life regression and many other sessions and experiences. I had years of physical and mental / emotional abuse and trauma/drama to heal. Karen helped me find inner peace, taught me numerous practical  techniques for handling stress, and recommended great classes and books. Practically every time I went home from a session with her, it was with a book she was loaning me to read or a stone or object that she had infused with healing energy for me to work with until next time. It was a beautiful time of exploring and involved a massive amounts of energy clearing. I feel so blessed to have found her.

Physical Pain and Entities

Up until the day I met Kaaren Shikiah Kaylor, I had never needed, or even thought of, having an energy session for physical pain. I so rarely have physical pain. But living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the energies there brought up so many things, I often found myself dealing with phantom pain from past lives and had lots of encounters with disharmonious energy, vampires, energetic attachments, etc. Where there is light, there is also darkness.

We had just moved to Santa Fe a few weeks prior and I had been invited to have a booth at a Goddess Weekend in Madrid, NM. As I was setting up the booth, I suddenly began having excruciating back pain. I could hardly walk I was so uncomfortable. I was still setting up the booth when this woman, Shikiah, was doing the opening ceremony. When my then husband, Raven, came back to the booth after the ceremony, he said, “I scheduled you an appointment with Shikiah.” Hmmmm I am freaking picky about who I let work in my energy field. I had never laid eyes on her and yet, I was scheduled for a session. If it weren’t for the pain, I probably would have cancelled. I like to make my own appointments, thank you very much. hahaha

I walked down to the teepee where sessions were being held and went inside. It was so lovely and beautifully decorated in there. Shikiah and I instantly connected and have been dear friends ever since. I was sitting on a cushion and as I explained about the pain, she walked around behind me, grabbed whatever it was in my energy field and threw it off. Whatever it was had hold of me with such intensity that when it let go, I literally fell forward with great force and the pain was absolutely and totally gone, never to return. It was a truly strange experience and it let me know, quite dramatically, that entities are real. After that, whenever I had pain, Shikiah was the one I called on for help.

I Am an Energy Healer

I’m an energy healer, the kind naturally born with the gift. I’ve been called the Chalice of Divine Frequencies and many people come into center and balance just being in my presence or listening to my voice. I am an amplifier and clarifier and I am extremely intuitive. For the past twenty+ years I’ve been in Spirituality and “Energy Healing School” through various ways and means. It all began with Reiki … the doorway many walk through to enter the world of energy healing. It quickly expanded into something else entirely when the dolphin energy healers entered the picture and sort of took over my world. I say that laughingly and lovingly.
According to a channel in New Zealand, I work with “a very fine frequency . . . Feminine integrated energy.”
Hopefully by now you know the story of how I learned to meditate and as soon as I began meditating, dolphins started to spontaneously appear in my visions and dreams, bringing with them powerful energy healing frequencies and processes, which I was then able to transmit to others.

Whatever you are called to do as a true life purpose, those talents and gifts you came in to awaken, activate, fine-tune, and enhance, often require that you grow immensely in consciousness and awareness, healing layer upon layer of fear and limitation in order to step fully into that role. That’s what I’ve been up to for two decades … awakening, activating, fine-tuning, expanding, allowing, healing, growing, in a never ending spiral upward.

Like everyone, I’ve gotten stuck and required assistance to move forward on more than one occasion. I’ve developed friendships and business partnerships with people who showed up so I could fine-tune and hone my “bull shit” meter (pardon the language), my ability to read energy, my ability to sort between the truly, authentically, genuinely Light and the wolves in sheep’s clothing – those who appear light, use all the right words, appear to be intent on helping others, but are instead running hidden agendas and in some cases are energy manipulators or actual energy vampires. If you are going to work with energy, this is something you must master.

How to Tell the Dark from the Light

Sometimes developing the ability to tell the difference takes a bloody long time and the emotional damage created by getting involved with the wrong people can be devastating. Of course all of it is about the learning and there are never truly “wrong” people in your life. Everyone is there for you to learn and grow beyond whatever you are experiencing.
The more your heal your own issues, rise in consciousness and awareness, and have encounters with disharmonious, unkind, manipulative people, the easier it is to spot them next time. If you are on a spiritual path, these are part of the lessons one must learn. If you don’t heal the issues, you will continue to draw those same type of people until you have.

Manipulative Healers

Sadly, there are energy healers out there who do a disservice to others by telling them they have a particular problem, causing them to break down emotionally by pointing out a deep dark shadow issue, but fail to provide solutions. Those types of healers are definitely to be avoided. I find that behavior unkind and manipulative. It is about as irresponsible as someone doing energy healing who hasn’t fine-tuned their ability to see, feel, or hear what is happening in the unseen.
Talk about the blind leading the blind. Just as people you can see range from the Dalai Llama to serial killers, the unseen realms are teaming with everything from angels and Ascended Masters to downright scary entities that you really don’t want to mess with unless you have been trained to do so. Naivety and a few words of protection do not provide a safety net. 
I recently read a thread on social media where a guy said he went to a shaman. The shaman told him that a sorcerer had placed a curse on him, but since he didn’t have much money and this was an initial free consultation, he was left with knowledge about this horrible thing going on, but no solution.  
 
I jumped in to the conversation and agreed with someone else who commented about what you latch onto mentally causes a HUGE impact on your life experience. I almost never get readings and am extremely careful about who I let do any form of “healing” with me or do work on my energy field.
If what the shaman said was really there, they should have cleared it out completely, disconnected them from the person, and sealed up and protected their energy field, then taught them things to keep that going.
You have to take part in your own healing. You can’t be “fixed” entirely by another. A lot of it is belief and the release of fear.
Energetic attacks are real. But anyone talking about “bad” things that result in doubt and fear within a client, needs to also be giving them tools and advice about how to remedy the situation. Just planting seeds of doubt and fear is no good for anyone. It is, however, a great way to get repeat customers who need to be continuously “fixed.” Maybe that was not the shaman’s conscious intention, but it definitely could have been. As a side note, most true shaman would never call themselves that. As my dear teacher, Stuart Wilde, once said … If they call themselves a master, they aren’t.
The person went on to say that the healing was incomplete because it was initially a free intro. After discussing finances, the guy left depressed.
 
That sounds to me like a scam to get customers. It is, sadly, human nature to give power over to those who seem to know more than we do about various things – particularly when dealing with the unseen realms. When I say give power over, I mean believe, without any filters whatsoever, whatever they say.
And belief happens not only with the conscious mind, but the unconscious as well. You may think one thing and believe something else entirely. True healers, those born with the gift and who have spent years honing and fine-tuning it are rare.
When you have cleared, healed, and aligned yourself enough, then the energy and intention of others becomes more apparent. You can then, fairly easily, tell the energy level (meaning clarity and level of consciousness) of whomever you are going to for support.
Until then, you end up in situations like this person did. This is not a bad thing, it is a learning experience. The more difficult encounters you have had with energy and people running hidden agendas, the more you grow and evolve as a person. It’s like training wheels for your personal mastery.

Some Will Steal Your Power

Selo Black Crow, a Lakota Medicine Man, once looked me in the eye and said “Never go to a Medicine Man for healing because he will steal your power.” I was shocked to hear him say those words. But then I went to a female Native American friend and repeated what he said. She gave me this look that kind of said to me “you poor ignorant white girl” and said, “yes, everyone knows that.” Well I didn’t know it.
I am not at all saying that all Medicine Men, shaman, or energy healers will do these things. There are some extraordinary healers out there that can literally facilitate miracles. I’m just saying be careful and don’t assume just because they call themselves shaman or Reiki Master, and show you a laundry list of training certifications, that they are any different than other people. Some are nice. Some aren’t. It really is that simple.

How Can You Tell?

If you spend time with someone and afterwards you feel confusion, worry, exhaustion, or self doubt, that is a neon sign that you have been manipulated energetically and/or mentally. Clear the energy between you and spend less time with them if at all possible.

How often do you take the time to meditate, open the energy channels within the body, connect to the earth and your Higher Self?

These are actions I take every single day. I encourage you to do the same. As you continue the practice, you will become better at determining  people who are running harmonious empowering energy vs the opposite.

Have a glorious day,

Michael Jackson – Angel or Devil?

Someone on Facebook said they really missed Michael Jackson.

This, of course, launched a lengthy debate about his character and whether one should love or hate the guy.

This was my response:

He was both. Like all of us, he was neither all good or evil. He had all of it inside and sometimes he showed the brilliance of one and other times the other. He was a very gifted artist trying to slay his inner demons. 

Anyone as vibrationally sensitive as he was, with the kind of upbringing he had, is pretty much guaranteed to be screwed up. And that is downright tragic. 

When he was expressing his Divine Gift – he was absolutely brilliant. 

I have no idea what he did or did not do, but he will forever hold a special place in my heart for the joy he caused whenever he took to singing, dancing, or both.”

When someone is expressing their Divine Gift, they are pouring Divine light out into the world. Michael did that with his music. 

The energy of his music brought joy to the space. 

It forced us to want to become more just by seeing how he had perfected his own gift.

His life was screwed up. He was not perfect. I don’t condone his actions if they were less than noble. If he mistreated anyone, then he needed help for sure.

However, that does not make the light he brought forth any less dazzling.

I, for one, was an admirer since I was 6 or 7 and someone at a slumber party put on a record by the Jackson 5. I’ve been a lover of dance ever since! I blame Michael – in a good way.

I trust that by now his soul is at peace. Heck, he may already be back again learning to do something else completely brilliant. Who knows?

Have a deLightful day,

Bearing Your Soul for the Whole World to See

Singing for some is literally bearing the soul. Its obvious that this is one of those cases.

To hear him sing means seeing all of who he is. Its extremely vulnerable and if you’ve been pushed around, made fun of, or watched others go through that, its safer to stay quiet and let people wonder what’s up with you. 

This young man stood there, pulled open his jacket and bared his chest – metaphorically – saying here I am, take your best shot. Wow did that take courage. For many, they will never muster up the courage to make such a bold statement about who they are. Instead they will remain small, less than they could be, bending to the conformity thrust upon them by others.

 

His soul cried out to be heard until he could no longer ignore it. The more people who find that courage, the more others will feel they can do it also. Its a great act by a very courageous soul. 

The truth is, in the wrong environment, it would have been misunderstood and probably ridiculed. 

His talent is very personal and he didn’t know how to let it out until the right time came. Thankfully the time did come and he was up for the challenge. I can only imagine what he must have been feeling before going on stage.

Daniel Jacob had this to say: “This is the very heart of the current transformation . . . men getting in touch with their feminine . . . and this man is choosing to bring that into form GRAPHICALLY and WHOLISTICALLY. Very much like the Shamans in many indigenous cultures who wear skirts to honor their feminine side. This man is doing it with make-up and with his voice. The fact that he is so embraced and so honored is a great sign for the planet! We’re more “on time” than we’ve acknowledged!”

To which I replied, “its not just the men needing to get in touch with their feminine side. The ladies are doing it big time as well. This morning I spent a couple of hours discussing this very thing. Even though many of us have embraced our feminine in some ways, in others we are just beginning. To be a vessel for the Divine Feminine requires learning an entirely new way of “being.” So much fun to understand and explore. I LOVE what this guy is doing and the things it is bringing up. So thank you, Daniel, for getting this particular conversation started by posting the video. Much love Dear One!”

People spend their whole lives comparing themselves with others and often feeling they come up short. They feel they are somehow less than, inferior, not as good, pretty, intelligent, rich, confident, or skilled, as someone else.

Magazines, television, families, churches, friends and co-workers all convince you that you should be a certain way, dress a certain way, and think a certain way. 

You need to learn to love, honor, accept, appreciate, and acknowledge the gifts and talents you’ve been given, as well as your uniqueness, your body, mind, and emotions, all the quirks and delights of your personality. 

If you could for one moment see yourself through God’s eyes, you would know – finally – the delight you bring to the Universe. You are a blessing. You are a gift. You came here with a mission and you are doing exactly what you are supposed to be in every now moment.

No matter who you are, what you’ve been through, or even what you’ve done,  you have a special role to play here. And you are loved.

When you can really “get” that. When you can feel it and know it to the depths of you, then and only then will your life change. 

If you are like most people, you are your own worst enemy – constantly criticizing and ridiculing yourself. 

Stop the judgment and ridicule. Give yourself a break. Realize that even though you are not perfect, its totally O.K. You are doing the best you can and it is absolutely, positively O.K. to screw it up sometimes. 

You need to become your own best friend. Instead of ridicule, why not pat yourself on the back and say “good job.” Allow yourself to be proud and excited when you find the courage to try something new. Because that is what its going to take to ever muster up the courage to truly be yourself and let your unique light shine forth for all the world to see. 

You are Magnificent! 

Live it. Experience it. Be it!

  1. Just love this “No matter who you are, what you’ve been through, or even what you’ve done, you have a special role to play here. And you are loved.”…There is always some good and bad in all of us 🙂

     

  2. Thanks for sharing Anita. There is good and bad or a little light and dark in each of us. There is also brilliance, very special gifts, and skills that others could benefit from knowing about that people truly need to find the courage to let shine. I like to say to people, the people you want on your inner circle are those who truly see you for who you are and love, honor, appreciate, and accept you – warts and all.

     

  3. It is very hard for many people to get in tune with the real self, while they are tying so hard to be perfect under the standards our society sets. We are taught to behave a certain way, so we can stay “in line” and other people have a hard time accepting us if we don’t have the label they can recognise stapled on out foreheads.
    We need to learn to get in tune with ourselves. And that’s why we need people like you, Debbie.

     

  4. Love the being “in tune” part of your message. Being in tune with who you are, and with the Universe, is so important. The more we compromise, bending and becoming small, in order to fit in, the more our Soul screams from suffocation. Conformity to societal expectations feels like a straight jacket which some are able to wear more easily than others. I had to leave the corporate world and move to the West Coast in order to breathe freely. Now that I’m back on the East Coast, staying true to who I am has been challenging as much of who I am just doesn’t fit into the normal box of people’s expectations. I homeschool. I’m a writer. I use alternative and complementary medicine before rushing to the doctor. I eat organic. I don’t drink soft drinks or beer. I teach personal and spiritual growth. I changed my name to something many don’t even know how to say. Oh my, I am definitely “weird” – and loving it! LOL Life is too short to spend all your time trying to please everyone else. Find the joy within, then people want to know what you are doing and they find you interesting. There will always be those who criticize and belittle others making them wrong. That’s their problem, not yours. Shine your light and have a great day!

     

  5. Sometime ago I became my own best friend, and started re-gain my self-esteem, I felt so much better. I realized that I needed to be wonderful for taking care of others, and things went to their places. Thanks for the post, it is always good to re-affirm our uniqueness!


  6. And wouldn’t the world be a horribly boring place if we were all truly the same! Thanks for sharing Meire Weishaupt.


  7. Ditto Anita’s comment … “No matter who you are, what you’ve been through, or even what you’ve done, you have a special role to play here. And you are loved.” Many people need to hear this …

     

  8. So true. People do need to hear this. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read the post.

     

  9. I agree that being able to see ourselves through God’s eyes would make a huge difference, however, I believe it is important to note that this is where the role of parents is crucial. Recognizing that children receive approximately 90% of their information about themselves and the world around them from their parents…they are the conduit through which our perception of ourselves is initially formulated…we, as parents, can also make a huge difference in their level of confidence, esteem and self-image. Thanks for sharing your insights!

     

  10. I completely agree Denny. That’s one of the main reasons I, and many of my friends, homeschool. I just can’t bring myself to expose my child to the level of bullying I experienced in high school. Self esteem is critical to success in every area of life. Self image also has a great deal to do with a person’s level of happiness and feelings of fulfillment. Yes, parents play a vital role in how a child views him or herself. Great insights Denny. Thanks for sharing. Here is an article where I share my thoughts on homeschooling and self esteem: http://www.homeschoolsantafe.com/ Scroll down the home page to read the article.

     

  11. I watched that episode and season of America’s Got Talent…Andrew was a shock to everyone, judges and audience alike. It goes to show that we are the only ones who hold ourselves back. We place judgements on ourselves that we think others perceive…quite the opposite can be true. What a life lesson about our self esteem he taught this fiery grandma.

     

  12. I love these moments when someone you wouldn’t expect to do something grand, does something grand. It always brings tears to my eyes. Reminds me a great deal of Susan Boyle and how she brought down the house on Britain’s Got Talent. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxPZh4AnWyk – just watched it again and yep, there were the tears. What a great inspiration.

     

  13. If you could for one moment see yourself through God’s eyes, you would know – finally – the delight you bring to the Universe. You are a blessing. You are a gift. You came here with a mission and you are doing exactly what you are supposed to be….LOVE this!! Reminds of Eshesian 2:10…We are His workmanship…his poetry, his masterpiece, a priceless work of art….getting that through my thick head has not been easy though..that i not the message i receieved for many years….

     

  14. Thanks for stopping by Carl. You are not alone in “getting it.” As I’ve worked with people, and observed myself, over the past 18 or so years, I can say with great confidence that seeing who you really are, your special gifts, and feeling good about yourself and those gifts is the greatest challenge most people face. We learn from a young age to compare ourselves with others – and we feel we fall short. There is always someone who is smarter, more attracted, more wealthy, more successful, etc. Whether it is our parents, peers, and teachers who point out our faults, or us doing it to ourselves, the result is the same – very low self image. Amazing things happen when a person can finally see their own magnificence – not from an ego place, but from a confident and joy-filled place.

     

  15. I adore the guy on this video, as he came out to decide that his days of being shy and being an outcast has ended. He showed the world what he can do. Thanks for sharing this inspirational video.

     

  16. Hi Lori:

    Thanks for stopping by. It is quite inspirational.

    Have a deLightful evening,

Magnificent U Online – Soon to Begin

As I mentioned in the previous newsletter, I’ve spent the last several years “receiving” and developing several new teachings and technologies for healing, regaining harmony, balance, wholeness, and achieving your dreams. Its a massive upgrade to some of my earlier teachings including Freeway to Freedom and the profound transformation so many people have experienced with my various technologies over the years. It is taking everything to a whole new level. I also realized that since Stuart Wilde, my first teacher, is no longer with us, its time to share the powerful things I learned from him.

The training includes a deep dive into relationships, the things you are here to master, how to develop a deep and profound relationship with your Divine Self and the dolphins, greatly fine-tuning and amplifying your intuition so you know where to be, what to say, and what to do in every moment, clearing, energetic protection, and so much more.But before I finalize everything and put it out there, I have two questions for you:
  1. Would you like to start mid-November or would you like to wait until the beginning of January – after the holidays?
  2. If there is something specific you would like to learn about energy healing, becoming healed and whole, or any of the other topics I discuss, please let me know so I can include it in this training.
Please leave a comment below with your answers.
Thanks!

Animal Communication, a True Story of Understanding and Transformation with a Leopard

I came across this video awhile ago and then it showed up again today.  I believe that every moment of every day our soul is sending us signals and its our job to pay attention. Seeing this extraordinary video twice was definitely a sign.

If you know a lot about animal communication, or have never even considered it, this is an extraordinary account of one woman’s ability and the positive difference it makes.

Just like the Animal Communicator in this video who has developed and fine-tuned this Divine gift, you too have been given certain gifts and its your job to discover and express them. It may not be animal communication. Whatever it is, finding it and expressing it will absolutely change your life.

Enjoy!

What is All This Spirituality Stuff About Anyway? by Takara

What is Spirituality by Takara

My son and I were having a lovely philosophical conversation recently and he asked me an interesting question. He wanted to know the point of all the spiritual beliefs and practices I share.

I found the question so intriguing that I thought I would share my response here with you …

We are all here as an emanation of the Divine, a spark of Divinity having a human experience. Yet we forget that fact.

We come in and from our very first breath, we are taking on the beliefs, fears, judgments and expectations of our ancestors through our DNA and from the parents, family, culture, and society we find our selves surrounded by, regardless of how true or false those things might be.

As we go through life we experience hardship, times when we are … Read more

Achieving Your Creative Potential by following the Ebb and Flow of the Universe

Entrepreneurs, authors, and others needing to be at the peak of creativity in order to achieve success will enjoy my insights below.

Being a bestselling author, I am part of several author’s groups on Facebook. When I read people discussing how they force themselves to sit down at a certain time and write so many words each day, I think, “WOW, if I had to force myself to write – especially a certain amount of words – then I would definitely not be a writer.”

I love water and I consider creativity very much like water and the ebb and flow like the tide. When the tide is in, it comes with full force and I may do nothing but write, rarely even eating, for days on end. I have literally written a whole book in 2 or 3 days.

Then it ebbs, the tide goes out, the ideas percolate in the background, in the subconscious, out in the Universe somewhere rearranging themselves, weaving with other things, until they come back in on another wave – at which time I may bring in another chapter or two or ten.

That is the way of my writing and all of my creative pursuits – be they books, training programs I’m developing, or marketing materials.

When its time, the words pour forth effortlessly. A second sooner, if I try to force it, the words are both not from the right “place” and not the right words. In Divine timing, and in the perfect number, they come. That is how I write. I invite you to find the courage to do the same with your writing and all creative endeavors.

All of nature has a rhythm:

  • The turning of the earth about its axis
  • the transformation of night to day back to night again
  • the cycles of birth, growth, harvest, death, and rebirth
  • the seasons
  • a woman’s cycles – when in tune its with the moon

When you get in sync with the earth through time in nature, in quiet inner reflection, in meditation, and align with the Divine, the flow of inspiration comes faster and with much less effort.

The higher you climb in consciousness, the easier goals are to achieve and the less attached you are to them anyway. Ever evolving. Ever growing. Ever changing and transforming into a greater version of self. That is the journey towards the Magnificent U.

Have a deLightful day,

Takara – bestselling author, speaker, engineer, mystic

Energy Healing, Psychic Readings, Akashic Records, Seed of Divine Restoration

A client recently sent me a series of questions. These are my response: 

Question: How does the Seed of Divine Restoration compare to an Akashic Record Reading

Hello Dear One:

DeLightful to hear from you.

“Readings” and “healing” are definitely not the same. The Seed of Divine Restoration offers profound energies for a complete life transformation.

I consider most “readings” mindless entertainment and some are even potentially harmful. However, if you are facing a serious issue that you have tried everything in the world to fix with no result, sometimes in a private session with a gifted healer, a past life regression is called for. In that case, understanding the memory (or metaphor) of the experience can often shed light on the current issue and allow it be healed more easily. Readings address none of this.

A reading is typically done by a person with some psychic skill reading into the psychic realm as it relates to you. The reading is often tainted by the beliefs, fears, judgments, and expectations of the “reader.” A reader’s level of consciousness and awareness greatly influences what they can and cannot read about another. And, if they are having an “off” day – meaning they are upset or out of balance in some way – it will definitely affect their ability to “read.” The same is true of healer’s abilities as well. Those who can get out of the way completely, and let higher wisdom come through, are truly a gift to humanity.

Don’t get me wrong . . . there are definitely individuals who are truly gifted, clear, and at a high level of consciousness and awareness. A reading with a person like that can have profound beneficial influence on your life. Sadly, not everyone is “reading” from that place.

Also, any “reading” that relates to what is happening with you right now is subject to change if even one new decision is made or new event happens in your life. So as soon as the reading is finished, its already quickly becoming obsolete.

I mentioned that they can be dangerous. The human mind is a very powerful thing. If a reader tells you that something “negative” is going to happen, even if that isn’t the truth, your worry about the thing can indeed cause it to happen. Because a reader is able to get information that you can not, it is human nature to believe them and give their words more value – even if what they said was not the truth. Even if you consciously discard the words thinking they don’t sound right or “feel” right, your subconscious mind has already heard them. It is for that reason that I avoid readings – and always have.

On very rare occasion, if I am specifically Divinely guided to do so, I will have a reading done. I have had maybe 3 to 5 my entire life. And truthfully, I barely remember them at the moment. Typically its one word or one concept that I needed to hear and that’s it.

You specifically asked about akashic readings. The akashic records are about earth’s past. If you are feeling “inspired” to have one done, then definitely do so. You can read more about them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akashic_records

That is not what the “Seed” is all about. The Seed of Divine Restoration is one of my spiritual gifts. It was revealed to me “directly” while on a vision quest high in the mountains of New Mexico. I did not learn it from someone else. Nor can I teach it to another. 

Question: I was wondering about vibrational energy. Specifically about everything having its own vibration.

We are all unique in the Universe. Just as our thumb print is unique, the very specific vibration we have is also unique. Different species have their own unique vibration (tone). Within each species, each individual has a unique vibration that falls within the range of that particular species overall tone.

Question: I believe that if someone truly wants to heal themselves that that can.

I believe in miracles and I have seen them happen. Its a tricky area however. What a person believes, or what they say they believe, is coming from their conscious mind – which science has now proven is less than 20% of the mind and therefore less than 20% of what matters. When we read something and think about it and then say, “Yes, I believe that,” we are doing that with our conscious mind. We have not taken into account the subconscious mind which has fears, beliefs, judgments, and expectations that our conscious mind is not even aware of. Some of those fears and  false beliefs are passed down from our ancestors through DNA. Some we pick up as small children as we experience this new world we find ourselves in. Others actually come from previous incarnations. So, saying “I believe this” is not actually true in most cases. We may have embraced it with our conscious mind, but the subconscious mind may believe something else entirely. That is where the real work is – addressing those hidden “truths” about who we are and what we truly believe – deep down in the shadows of our subconscious mind. That is much of what I help people address.

If we truly believed and understood who we are in relation to being human and in relation to our Divine heritage, then we would not be sick, we would not die, we would not experience poverty or disharmonious relationships or any of the nonsense we all experience here. Our only limitations are our beliefs. Sin is “wrong thinking” and that is what we are learning here in the classroom called earth.

It is a rare individual that can believe on all levels that they can heal themselves. I have done it. But I was not “healing myself.” I had been Divinely inspired to visualize golden orbs of light and to place them on a particular part of my body. And I in no way felt “I” was healing myself. I felt I had the help of the entire Universe.

Jesus made a statement about “Where 2 or more are gathered.” Most miracles seem to happen when a person has asked for help from another, they believe the person truly can help them, and the person they have asked trusts their Divine inspiration (intuitive hunches) when it comes to healing.  Most of the healing I have seen and heard about has happened in this way.

Question: Most people feel the need to look outside of themselves.

If you consider the consciousness of most people on this planet, few have reached 500 on the consciousness scale. We have determined that until a person reaches at least about 450 on the consciousness scale, they really do need outside assistance. I have not looked at why. But I would say it has to do with the subconscious mind that I mentioned previously. A person can only rise in consciousness if they have healed, or at least neutralized, some of those limiting beliefs and fears held subconsciously.

I have found personally that there are things I can address effectively by myself and there are things that I end up needing help from someone else in order to resolve.

Question: I am curious about everything having its own vibration that you have to align with. I assume that includes healthy livers, hearts, bones . . .   

What you are really trying to align with is your true Self – what I call the Magnificent Self. The YOU that knows on all levels that you are perfect, healthy, happy, prosperous, etc.

Question: Reiki is one way to heal with energy, but you have no idea how deficient the organ or person is.

Reiki is one system of energy for bringing in Divine Healing Light. It is a great introduction to energy work, but I feel it is lacking in many ways. I often refer to it as “energetic kindergarten.” There is so much more to learn about energy and healing than a person can possibly take in during a workshop for 1 or 2 weekends with a Reiki master.

What Reiki, Chi Kung, and other forms of hands-on healing are doing is bringing in enough healing energy that the person can better align with health. It is not about “adding more energy” to a particular organ as if energy were a supplement. It is about energetically raising up the body – and hopefully the mind – of the individual so that it can access the Truth about itself and let go of the false beliefs and negative energies that keep it stuck in sickness and disease.

Question: Do you have any knowledge of something current or in the works to measure vibration?      

There was a device created that measures energy. The designer is dead and the family refuses to give out the technology. I have been unable to ascertain what really happened.

One of my friends has an energy healing product line and she sends everything to europe for testing. I’ve sent her an email to see what the technology is and how to find out more about it. I’ll let you know if I find out anything more. 

Have a deLightful day,

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
