All Spiritual Paths Lead to Love, Inner Peace, and Enlightenment

All Spiritual Paths Ultimately Lead to Love, Inner Peace, and Enlightenment

Even though there are numerous spiritual paths, many people hold strong convictions that there is only one path to God … and obviously that path is the one they are following.  It has been my experience that the higher you climb in consciousness and awareness … regardless of which of the spiritual paths your soul has chosen to help you get there … those paths all ultimately lead to oneness, inner peace, Divine love, and enlightenment. And I have met many following many spiritual paths that have gone far towards those ends.
 
I care not what path one follows … I care what’s in their heart. If they are kind, do their best to follow the Golden Rule, and are actively focused on growing and evolving as an individual, then they tend to be “my people.” And I have met many heart-centered people walking many spiritual paths. I look for those who have worked diligently to rid themselves of hatred, judgment, and fear … which taints and distorts everything they perceive, say, and do. Clarity and purity of mind, body, and spirit is a never-ending process.
All Spiritual Paths Lead to Love, Inner Peace, and Enlightenment
In the western world, most practice the Christian faith. Beloved Yeshua ben Joseph (Jesus / Sananda in his Ascended Master expression) definitely taught a path of love. Christianity, as practiced in western society, typically holds only a glimmer of what was taught by Jesus himself … people often forget or never connected the dots that he was a jew his entire life. For anyone curious about what I’m talking about, visit the work of Neil Douglas-Klotz. Just listening, intoning, and dancing the first line of the “real” Lord’s prayer can change your life. Neil went back to the actual Aramaic and developed a much more authentic translation of the original.
When I had a complete spiritual awakening back in 1993, I was soon intuitively guided to take a weekend workshop with Neil … whom I knew nothing about, but absolutely KNEW I had to learn from. I saw an ad in a magazine and instantly knew I HAD to go. It wasn’t a guess. It was an absolute inner knowing. Going there was greatly uncomfortable, because I knew nothing about Neil or his work and my personality was really rebelling as “Desert Wisdom Weekend” sounded pretty strange to me at the time. I’m so glad I went. It was glorious. It was my first real experience of sound healing. We were creating our own sounds by singing in Aramaic and other middle-eastern languages doing dances and other body prayers. It was extraordinary and truly life changing / transformational.
I have spent many moons with shaman, medicine men and women, wise elders from many indigenous cultures from all across the globe who came to teach and lead ceremony at the Spirit of Nature Retreat that I owned in New Mexico. Many of those people have far greater peace than the majority of white people (Christians or not) that most will ever meet.
I have met three actual Avatars (Master, Sage, etc.). One, in particular, exuded so much love, it literally caused me to have tears run down my face … without her saying a word. It was merely her presence and the Divine radiance that she exudes … which we, ultimately, can all become ourselves should we decide to take up that mantle for ourselves. Jesus (according to the English translation anyway) said: “know ye not that ye are gods” and “even greater things than these shall ye do.” Those are words I believe whole-heartedly.
My God, the God I stood fully in the presence of, the God I felt through every fiber of my being, the God I know to the dept of me is not a god of war, of vengeance, of anger and judgement or one that would ever require a blood sacrifice. And that is where various religions and I part company. My God is an exceedingly loving God, plays no favorites, loves absolutely unconditionally, and is delighted in it’s (beyond gender) creation which we all are. The beautiful thing about life on planet earth is that we get to decide what truth speaks to our soul. One can be deeply Divinely connected regardless of religious path, or in my case, lack of specific religious path.
The ultimate path for each person, I believe, is the one their soul pushes them to walk. For some, that means being part of a particular religion. For others, that means learning this and learning that, taking bits and pieces from all those we are Divinely guided to spend time with and then continue to climb in consciousness and awareness, to continue to heal the “sins” of fear, limiting beliefs, judgments, expectations, guilt, shame, blame, victimhood, etc. that keep us from becoming Avatars ourselves. To forgive ourselves and others for the things we have done, said, and thought this and other lifetimes. To receive insight directly through Divine revelation, and to continue to follow the still small voice within rather than what others tell us we “should” believe.
Yeshua / Sananda is a dearly beloved being of Light whom I greatly admire and do my best to emulate. His teachings of the Golden Rule (also part of every major world religion) is one I work to incorporate into my every decision, my every action. He has appeared to me on numerous occasions and I feel his distinct energy whenever I ask for him to be present.
I had a distinct memory (a flash of a vision) of walking along the shore alone with Yeshua one day and he kept saying the word Hashem. I so wish I could remember the rest of what he was saying. I assumed that it was my name in that lifetime. One day a few years later I felt “inspired” (in spirit / intuited) that I should look it up. It turns out that it is one of many names for God in Judiasm.
What I find fascinating is the large number of Jewish clients that I have. I said something about that to one of my dear friends and clients … who also happens to be Jewish. She said, “you feel Jewish to me.” The same is true of Native Americans though. I have many native friends who just don’t look at me or consider me as “separate” like they do many other Caucasians. I have been many things and I have “called in” those various lineages to my now. The closer I get to Oneness (I know I have far to go), the more I understand how all paths lead to the same place.
I don’t really tune in so much to the religion and teaching as I do to the Being behind it, the energy of The Teacher, be it Yeshua, Buddha, or some other Avatar … because that is what I believe all of us are here working to become.
From that perspective, I feel that all paths have validity. Those who are walking them are on that path on purpose. When their soul is ready for them to evolve, they will do so within that path (as beings like St. Francis and Hildegard von Bingen were able to evolve far beyond their peers and the constrictive teachings of the church at the time, while they were still within the construct of Christianity) or they will move on to the next thing their soul wants them to experience.

Hopefully by now you are aware of some of my various teachings. One of the things I often share are the 5 practices that can help you come into alignment and live what I call the Noble C’s (being calm, clear, confident, Divine connected, and courageous) in every moment. Those practices are:

When you do these things, you come into greater alignment with the truth of who you are, your own I Am Presence and allow the spark of Divinity that you are to direct your life … your words, your actions, your decisions.  From that place, you are “inspired” along your path.

Enjoy Beloveds,
Takara

Golden Water Dolphin Meditation for Planetary Healing

20 Years of Dolphin & Water Healing & How You Can Get Involved

 

It seems like only yesterday that I found myself suddenly awake in my wonderful home atop Palomar Mountain in Southern California … a beautiful sacred mountain just east of San Diego. It was 4 am precisely and there were words screaming to be written down about healing the water and connecting to dolphins and whales. It was 1998.

I knew how important it was to capture the words on paper whenever they “come in” that way … so I got out of bed, found my pad and pen, and began to write. What started as a few thoughts quickly flowed into a powerful, transformational healing meditation for all the water on the planet, as well as dolphins, whales, and all the people who participated.

Dolphin and whales had already had an extraordinary impact on my life.

Overwhelming stress from my job as an engineer and manager in pharmaceuticals manufacturing caused me to open up what seemed a Pandora’s box of unhealed emotional wounds … including suddenly remembering I’d been raped in my late teens and had completely surpressed the memory. After making a few visits to a psychotherapist to help deal with all that, I quickly turned to meditation and alternative healing for support. As soon as I learned to meditate, I surprisingly and delightfully began to see, sense, and feel myself surrounded by dolphins. Along with seeing and feeling them, I was being completely engulfed in a tsunami of transformational healing energy from these dolphin beings I later came to call dolphin-angels. From that moment forward, each time I closed my eyes to do a guided meditation, the dolphin-angels would show up along with their powerful healing energy.

This had been going on for a year or two when I was guided (had an inner absolute knowing) that I was to attend Stuart Wilde’s 8-Day Warriors in the Mist training in the mountains of New Mexico. Stuart had become my Metaphysical Mentor. I’d read all his books and listened to his various audios countless times. At the Mist training, I met a woman from the San Juan Islands off Washington State who was hoping to start a non-profit for dolphins and whales.

She shared with me the story of Lolita … a magnificent orca from the San Juans who had been captured 1970 somewhere between the ages of 4 and 6 (reports differ), separated from her mom and family, hauled out of the water in a sling, placed on a truck and transported to SeaAquarium Miami where she remains enslaved to this day. The story touched me on such a deep level I hardly have words.

Before long I’d left my job at the pharmaceutical company in Pennsylvania and moved to the San Juans to live near Lolita’s family and co-found the non-profit for dolphins and whales with the woman mentioned previously. We traveled to Miami and I got to meet Lolita.

I had quite an encounter with her 20+ years ago when I went to visit. We were the first in line and ran up the entrance to stand next to her tank until it was time for her show to start. She came over to us and just stared. She never left, she never swam around. She ducked her head underwater a few times to get it wet and then came right back up to stare at us some more. Even the trainers noticed this odd behavior. The whole time she was performing, the trainers were pointing in our direction wondering who the heck we were and why she was behaving the way she was. She and I are deeply connected – truly like sisters – and I promised her that day that I would continue to share her story and to do whatever I could to help her become free and return to her family.

So being called upon to help the oceans and other dolphins and whales made total sense.

The “need” to get as many people involved as possible to do the meditation simultaneously at Equinox was something I knew I was being prompted to do. I contacted several people and organizations that promoted global events including Barbara Wolf who had a mailing list for people who did global meditations. When I shared with her about the meditation I’d “received,” she suggested I contact David J. Adams in Australia and she gave me his email address.

I find it deLightful how amazing events unfold, synchronicities occur, and wonderful people show up in your life when you follow inner guidance. Following the intuitive nudge to contact Barbara and then listening to her advice about contacting David has resulted in a 20-year (and still going) collaboration with this extraordinary man in Australia that to this day I’ve never met in person.

When I shared with him the meditation I’d received, he responded by sharing the one he had received 6 years prior (in 1992) called the Global Marine Meditation. As I read the words he had received, I was overwhelmed by how similar they were to the words I had “downloaded” from the Universe only a few days before. Here I was a female in North America getting information about water healing and a man across the globe in Australia had received almost identical words 6 years earlier. Discovering you are communicating with someone who is “tuned to” the same cosmic channel you are is a profound realization.

We immediately decided to “team up” and have been co-leading the meditations ever since.

Every year the frequencies rise and the energy coming through David and I and many others increases.

We invite you to join in for the Golden Water Dolphin Meditation for Planetary Healing and the Global Marine Meditation. As you read out loud or listen to the words, you will experience these vibrations on every level of your being. And you will add voice, intention, and healing energy to the focus of healing the waters of planet earth.

Healers, Psychics, Intuitive Coaches - It's Time to Heal

Healers, Psychics, Intuitive Coaches – It’s Time to Heal

According to the English translation of the bible, Jesus is quoted as saying: “Don’t try to remove the spec from your brother’s eye until you have removed the plank from your own.” I’m quoting from memory, so it might not be exactly those words. It is close enough for you to get the gist though.

It is very simple and wise advice really. Don’t try to help others until you yourself are healed, whole, balanced, integrated, and aligned – body, mind, and soul. Yet all over the globe wounded healers, psychics, coaches and others are trying to help clients and friends when they themselves are still an emotionally wounded mess.

 

Healers, Psychics, Intuitive Coaches - It's Time to Heal

 

Over and over again I share with you what I call the Noble C’s (calm, clear, confident, Divinely connected, and couragous) and how important it is for you to achieve and maintain that “state of being.” It is vital if you wish to live a joy-filled life, to grow and evolve as a person, rise in consciousness and awareness, reach your highest potential, manifest your true heart-felt desires, and ultimately to have the greatest possible impact in helping others.

That can’t happen if the subtle and not so subtle issues have not been discovered, acknowledge, and truly healed on all levels. People with deep issues, trauma dramas from the past that have not been properly addressed, phobias, biases, and judgments passed down through their lineages taint their every thought, word, and action. And, it keeps them from rising up higher in consciousness, and awareness.

It’s understandable how this happens … people are naturally drawn to things they need themselves. Many people in the healing arts are drawn to energy healing, life coaching, psychology and other healing fields because they themselves need work in those areas. I know when I first was “inspired” to begin creating Dancing Dolphin Alchemical Synergies (energy healing oils & mists), it was to address the numerous deep issues I myself was carrying. Physical and severe psychological abuse, rape, bullying, betrayal by a close friend, numerous experiences of love and loss, being forced to move away from who (I thought at the time) was my one true love this lifetime, and many many other issues left deep emotional scars and many unhealed subconscious issues. And that is just this lifetime.

Think of the crusades, the inquisition, slavery, the plague, the trail of tears, and so many other times and challenges that people have faced over eons of time. Those traumas, science has now proven, are passed down to the next generations.

Every person born in a female body automatically gaines a series of subcscious beliefs that they are less than, less loved by God, unworthy, etc. because of how deeply those beliefs are held by people who practice the various major world religions. Those beliefs, of course, are completely false … the Divine (by whatever name you resonate with) loves everyone everywhere (inluding animals, plants, ants, and everyhing else in creation) equally.

There is a saying (I have no idea where it came from) that the sins of the father are visited on the sons for 7 generations. When you consider “sin” to be “wrong thinking” as I do, then this new scientific discovery makes actual tangible sense with real world implications. All of this subconscious caca is skewing, tainting, and distorting the energies coming through the healers and the information the channels and psychics are “receiving” and sharing with clients.

It is particularly bad in the western world where most people have completely turned off their intuitive / feeling body. They have only their mind to trust about anything. And hopefully by now you are beginning to understand how truly untrustworthy that can be sometimes. because of false beliefs and fears held in the subconscious.

I wish the book I’m working on right now was out already so when I mention levels of consciousness. you would have a deeper understanding about what I mean. Until then, just know that to truly step into your power, to lead a life of grace, flow, freedom, and joy, to see and “know” clearly, a great deal of deep deep inner work is required.

You are never “done.” No matter how high you climb in consciousness and awareness. No matter how much information you channel or energy you “bring through,” there is always more and deeper work to be done. It is an ever upward spiral that you are journeying around.

You can tell you have work to do when you are “triggered” by anything. Triggers look like:

  • anger
  • judgment (judgment involves emotion, discernment is very logical and completely devoid of emotion)
  • upset
  • name calling
  • reactions of any kind to people or situations
  • sudden lack of confidence, self doubt, or confusion

Even just reading the news or social media can trigger your “stuff.” That’s why many people avoid both. I avoid news but spend a great deal of time on social media sharing insights.

Because of how easy it is to have skewed information coming through a channel, I rarely let anyone do energy healing work on me and almost never get “readings.” When you have healed (body, mind, soul) enough emotional baggage, have done soul retrievals and other processes that help you become more “whole,” have stepped into a state of grace, synchronicity, and a greater level of ease, are highly in tune with your intuitive/feeling body, then you can immediately “feel” and know if someone is genuine or running hidden agendas, if they are of a high level of consciousness, and if the information and energy coming through them is pure.

Every single products and program I have been “inspired” (brought in from higher dimensions to assist humanity) is designed to help you get to that place yourself … I have never met anyone living at a higher level of consciousness who hasn’t had significant help to get there. And, no matter how far they rise, there are occasions when they still need assistance. Thinking otherwise is why mamy stay stuck.

Dancing Dolphin Alchemical Synergies offer extraordinary support to help you grow and evolve, rise in consciousness and awareness, and to address the deep dark subconscious things that keep you stuck and playing small. As I evolve, the energies the synergies carry do as well.

I’ve said for years that everyone needs to go through at least 1 bottle of Forgiveness while working with the meditation and training I put together to assist. And that is definitely still true.
Yet, the more I work with the ideas I’ve shared in this article – as well as the deep dive into all these subjects that I’ll be sharing in my upcoming book – the more I realize that everyone also needs to work with the energies of Finally Free. And then in a year or two do another bottle of Finally Free. And then to continue this out into the future.

The Creative Invocations for the I Am Presence contain specific teachings, healing technologies and Dancing Dolphin transformational energies to help you integrate your Diviine aspects of self into your third dimensional reality. Visit this link to get Finally Free and Forgiveness now!

 

Choosing the Right Social Media Platforms for You and Your Business

—– Add stats and a little story and an image —–
You do not need to be on every social media platform …. just the ones your ideal clients and customers are on and that fit with your business.
FACEBOOK – Everyone needs to be on it who has a business.
TWITTER – Definitely not for everyone. Seems to work well for authors, coaches and consultants, musicians, and various celebrities. Not so great for small businesses that sell products – as a general rule.
LINKEDIN – For professionals, consultants, business to business companies, and people looking for a job and also those hiring. It can work for authors and I know a few astrologers and others who are on there. It is ALL about business and not really about being social.
GOOGLE+ – I don’t see where many people are using Google+. However, you want to be on there for the Google algorithm. Because it is owned by Google, when you have a profile and have a few posts (which can be automatically posted to without you ever having to go on the platform), it can help you or your business be found on Google … always a good thing.
PINTEREST – A great place to be for many business … particularly those with products. It takes a while to set up and pin a bunch of stuff to various boards so you actually have a “presence” on there. In that regard, it is the hardest to get started. But people tend to buy much more from Pinterest links and many people are on there looking for things to buy. Jewelry in particular does well there.
INSTAGRAM – Another platform that is all about the visual. It is expected that you post selfies and images about what is happening in your life. That’s not always the case … it’s not one I really follow. But it is how many people use it, including those making lots of money from the platform. It is by far the platform that gets the most interaction. And for that reason, you might want to consider it if you haven’t already.
YOUTUBE – Another place you probably want to be. You can do videocam (talking head) videos, powerpoint presentations, or anything else you want to. For total strangers to buy from you, they need to know, like and trust you. A GREAT way to make that happen is on video.
Helping Children Thrive

Helping Children (and adults) Thrive, Be Healthy, and Smarter

Helping Children Thrive

 

It’s so important to create a healthy environment in which a child can thrive, be healthy, and smarter. The same is true of creating a healthy environment for yourself, your spouse and other loved ones, your co-workers, employees, and other people in your life.

I homeschooled my child all 12 years and am quite the advocate for health, safety, and education for women and children.

If you are not aware, research has now proven (and it makes logical sense) … spanking is harmful (sometimes severely) to a child’s development. You can view this article for more info. about how it negatively impacts IQ and other developmental factors.

Most people haven’t even really thought about the negative effects of spanking … they blindly do what was done to them back through antiquity. It takes a certain level of consciousness, of wisdom, and compassion to even consider questioning the norm.

Sadly, today’s education system and most religions teach people not to question anything. You are fed a bunch of “facts” and are expected to believe them as truth and regurgitate them back without question. Otherwise, you are reprimanded (in some cases beaten) or you get a bad grade. Either way, thinking for yourself, asking questions, questioning the logic and truth about the “facts” is considered blasphemy.

Based on this conditioning, most people don’t look at anything rationally. They lack the skills for critical thinking. Some of us have, thankfully, broken free and can think for ourselves. Having a degree in some form of science is very helpful. Experiencing a spiritual awakening and/or being a long-term meditator helps a person see everything from a new, wiser, higher, deeper perspective. What is obvious to those of us who are critical thinkers, is not even noticed or questioned by the masses.

To those people who have attained a certain level of consciousness as well as have empathy and compassion, it’s really obvious that to raise a healthy, happy, child with everything they need to be successful in the world (as they define success of course – not our definition as the parent), children (and adults) need to feel safe and to know that they are loved, honored, accepted, appreciated, and acknowledged for who they are as an individual. Quite a tall task … but definitely worth it.

One of the things I often discuss in my teachings is creating the “right” environment.

In the “right” environment, a person thrives. In the “wrong” environment, they can easily develop self-doubt, fear, depression, illness, etc. etc. A child needs to be planted (born into) and nurtured in the right environment.

 

Create the Right Environment for Children to Thrive

 

When someone is being constantly criticized, belittled, put down, made wrong … particularly with that being reinforced by the physical abuse of spanking or domestic violence … that is the extreme opposite of the “right” environment.

I believe in being the best you can be at everything you decide to do. Parenting is no exception to that.

Being a good parent doesn’t just mean doing whatever you learned from your own parents. And, as I’ve said before, this doesn’t just apply to parent-child relationships. This applies to all relationships.

It means realizing that each child is unique and the way to create the “right” environment may be different for each child. Some children (and employees) need to be allowed to do things their way. Give them the end goal and a tiny bit of instruction (and supervisory safety oversight depending on their age and experience with whatever they are doing) and some kids will be off creating, figuring things out, etc. etc. Others want (and need) clear step by step instruction and direction. I believe that has to do with where they fall in the D.I.S.C. scale. Some people see the big picture. Others all the minute details. Some are spontaneous. Others need a plan. Some are introverted. Others are extroverted. Some love to be very very social. Others need their alone time to think, inner reflect, imagine.

Not getting what they need actually causes them stress. For some, the stress can be quite severe.

Realizing that everyone isn’t just like you are and may have completely different needs than you do is the first step in being a great parent, a great partner, a great leader or boss.

To raise healthy happy children and/or to be a better boss, spouse, friend, my greatest advice is to become what I call the Noble C’s: calm, clear, confident, and Divinely connected. When you operate from that “place,” the insights and inspirations you receive directly, intuitively, guide you in ways that are remarkable. And they help you become a better parent, nudge you with things to show your children, say to your employee or spouse, do as you go about your day. Instead of guessing about the right course of action in each moment, you simply know. With that knowing comes much more ease, grace, and flow to everything.

Many blessings to healthy, happy families,

My latest ecourse to help you achieve those Noble C’s is now available. It’s called the Dancing Dolphin Way. Going through the teaching and the transformational meditational exercises helps you move beyond the past, heal the inner wounding that causes you to behave irrationally and immaturely in relationships, to jump to conclusions about why people say and do things and what those words and actions mean, to be more concerned with self and less conscientious than you could (or probably should) be about how your words and actions negatively impact others. There are so many ways in which becoming whole and healed improve your life. Being a better parent is just one.

 

Enjoy life give yourself permission

Give Yourself Permission to EnJOY Life!

I read an article recently by a success guru listing all the things that are a waste of time. I agreed with most things on the list. But the first item was “watching TV.” When I saw that, I thought I would share the following with you as some food for thought about taking some time to enjoy life …

Enjoy life give yourself permission

I never watch TV per se, but this introvert has always used a movie or a couple of streamed episodes of something (commercial free) as the best wind down to a very long day of thinking, creating, consulting, and decision making. Since I don’t currently have a significant other and my son is now in college, it is not taking precious time away from loved ones to let a screen entertain my brain. We all have things that bring us joy and for some of us, that includes cinema. 

According to the “Three Boxes of Life” by the author of another book I HIGHLY recommend, “What Color is Your Parachute,” a balanced life includes equal amounts of work, play, and learning. As a professional in helping others lead a balanced, joyful, more stress-free life, I condone including some activities that allow you to just “be” vs “do” all the time.

Being visually entertained allows my brain to recharge in ways that reading and other activities do not. I also dance, do yoga, meditate, and tons of other things to take care of myself. For me, this enjoyment of storytelling in visual form feeds my soul. I read somewhere that Buckminster Fuller felt there to be only a hand full of jobs that had any merit and entertaining others was, surprisingly, on that list. I looked for the quote, but haven’t found it yet.

On the flip side, being bombarded by commercials that lead you to believe that no matter what you have you need more and watching news that makes you think the world is a very unsafe place and keeps you in fear is definitely not a good idea. That, I wholeheartedly agree with.

In almost all things, I believe in the 80/20 rule … more like 90/10. Ninety percent of the time you do things or eat things that are good for you, that are leading you towards the goals you are wishing to achieve in your personal and business life, as well as your health. 10% of the time, however, you give yourself permission to enJOY life, whatever that means for you.

Of course, if your life is out of balance, you are overweight or facing some serious health issue, or your career or finances are in serious trouble, then you have to do whatever it takes to turn that around and that means 100% of the time doing exactly the right actions to get you there.

May you truly enjoy life,
Bestselling author Debbie Takara Shelor signature

 

 

 

 

P.S. We all need support sometimes, no matter who we are, how much work we have done on ourselves, or how successful we have become. I offer consulting to help you and your business improve as well as long distance energy healing sessions to help you break through your barriers to success, happiness, and inner peace.

Meditation Quote by Bruce Lee:

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now put the water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

Flower Essences Aromatherapy Herbs for Health

Nutrition & Herbs, Aromatherapy, & Flower Essences – Nature’s Natural Healers

 

Nutrition & Herbs, Aromatherapy, & Flower Essences – Nature’s Natural Healers

Plants are nature’s healers. Flower essences, aromatherapy (essential oils), herbal supplements, powders, and tincture all provide powerful support for the human body. 

Flower Essences Aromatherapy Herbs for Health

Practically every vegetable you can imagine offers some beneficial nutrients that support the human body. The same is true of herbs. Yet what you get from broccoli is different from what you get by eating a carrot. Both are beneficial. Both are vegetables. Yet they are each unique and offer different forms of support for human health.

Essential oils (EOs) used in Aromatherapy also come from plants. And each one, again, offers an entirely unique benefit to the human body. Peppermint helps with nausea and stomach upset. Helichrysum helps to eliminate pain. And there are many many more.

There is another form of support offered to humans by the plant kingdom. That support is energetic in nature and comes from the flower. And just like broccoli provides different “necessary ingredients” than carrots, each flower offers a different vibration to assist.

Of all the support available from plants, according to Dr. Richard Gerber M.D., only flower essences provide assistance on all levels of our being – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

There are vast differences in the nutrition available from a carrot. If it is fresh and organic, it is scientifically proven to have higher levels of “the good stuff” than one that is frozen and grown in nutrient-depleted soil and was inundated with chemicals.

The same is true for any plant-based product. There are many factors that determine the quality and potency of essential oils and flower essences.

The number of nutrients in the soil, the location and habitat, other plants and even rocks in the vicinity, if they are grown naturally and organically or sprayed with chemicals and are GMO. If they are harvested at their peak.

The method used to get the oil out of the plant greatly affects its medicinal qualities. Low temperature and pressure with no chemicals is vital to an essential oil’s quality and potency. It must be sealed airtight – just like the Egyptians did with the essential oil jars they buried with the pharaohs. Sunlight, heat, and air can destroy the delicate nature of an aromatherapy oil.

If produce doesn’t say “organic,” then it isn’t. If an essential oil doesn’t say that it is organic & steam distilled, then it isn’t.

Flower Essences, Essential Oils, Herbs for Healing

Now we move on to the more mysterious energy-based (and in my opinion most powerful) form of support offered by the plants – the flower essence.

Anyone can cut a few flower blooms and place them in a bowl of water, set it in the sun, and call it a flower essence.

The physical aspect of “creating” an essence only accounts for between 5 and 15% of its quality and effectiveness.

A rose is not a rose is not a rose. And a flower essence is not a flower essence is not a flower essence.

There are literally hundreds of factors that can affect the result when creating flower essences.

Again the growing conditions are very important. So is the location. I’ve made a flower essence from the same species of daisy in two separate locations – on the north shore of Lake Ontario and in the high desert in the American Southwest. Both were made at the peak of bloom in the same sacred way. I even used the very same bowl. Yet the resulting essences are vastly different in vibration and even their primary purpose (or benefit) is different.

The date and time the essence is made affect the result just like the date, time, and location of your birth impacts who you are.

Approximately 20% of the overall result is based on the consciousness level of the person who makes the essence. (I actually thought this percentage would be higher).

Read Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior to learn about what I mean when I talk about consciousness level. (I’m also writing my own book about this subject, but it won’t be out for awhile.)

A full 50% of the end result is based on the relationship between the person making the essence and the Divine Presence or Spirit of the plant – known by many names including Flower Deva.

These are the rudiments of figuring out the difference between a truly powerful (almost miraculous) flower essence and one that has much less power or benefit for the end user.

Many people have indicated that Dancing Dolphin Oils and Mists are the only essences they can actually feel and notice a difference with. Others use them exclusively, over all other options, for themselves and their clients.

Since, as healing therapies go, all flower essences are easily affordable, why not ensure you are getting the very best.

Harmony for the Holidays

Harmony for the Holidays

I’ve never been to a holiday gathering with family or friends where there was anything but harmony for the holidays … ever … my entire life. I’m talking about never witnessing first hand a family gathering full of discord. It doesn’t matter if it was with immediate or extended family, the family of a boyfriend, fiance, or husband, or a gathering in my own home of friends who didn’t all know one another before the gathering … harmony and delight at being in one another’s presence has always been pervasive at these events.

It begins within.

And it begins with the parents. If the parents love, honor, accept, and appreciate themselves, they also love, honor, accept, and appreciate their own parents, their siblings, their children, etc.

Each child needs to be taught to love, honor, accept, and appreciate themselves and then to extend that to others as well.

The result of such loving and honoring is harmony within all the relationships.

I can’t even imagine doing life any other way.

Harmony for the Holidays

Does that mean I’ve never encountered disharmony?

Hardly!

I went from being highly popular and enjoying so many delightful friends in schools both in New Jersey and Texas … to being severely bullied, rejected, and having only a few friends in a small town in Virginia. High school was hell … there’s no other more pleasant way to put it. The bullying was so bad that for at least a year or more I came home and cried every single day. I didn’t understand what I was doing wrong, why I didn’t fit in, why people didn’t like me. I was in such foreign territory.

I’d also never been anywhere that people pretended to like you to your face and then talked badly about you behind your back. Being an empath, you can pick up on the incongruence immediately. You can literally “feel” when someone doesn’t like you. Trust me, it doesn’t feel good.

Once I was no longer in high school (being forced to be around people who didn’t like me and, therefore, whom I didn’t like in return) I began to thrive. I quickly developed a network of friends at work and at college. I began taking a leadership role in professional organizations and that has continued to this day. I am deeply deeply blessed to have so many friends.

But that didn’t happen by accident or because I’m more special than anyone else. It happened because I got very clear that I wanted a wonderful group of friends. You might have seen other articles where I talk about the affirmations I used to say about friendship. It goes something like this, “I want interesting, fun, uplifting friends all over the world who are making a positive difference.” And now, after many years of “receiving” teachings that have helped me formulate my own teachings, I would add: “We each love, honor, accept, and appreciate one another and are deLighted to be in one another’s presence and feel blessed to have each other in our lives.”

I highly recommend you do something similar when it comes to all your relationships … romance, friendships, business partnerships, with co-workers, committee members, and everything else you participate in. Intend harmony. Intend peace. Intend cooperation, admiration, appreciation, acknowledgement, friendship, and yes, even love (not the romantic kind, the Divine unconditional kind).

When people seek my advice about romance, I help them get crystal clear about what they are looking for in both a partner and in the relationship itself. I help them form a picture in their own mind and words to describe exactly what they are seeking. And I often suggest that they add something about it being a “mutual admiration society” where you each feel truly blessed to have the other in your life.  The best relationships involve partners who continue to feel that way over time. I’m not talking about living with rosy colored glasses, not seeing the truth or flaws in the other. I’m talking about seeing them even more clearly than most and loving, honoring, accepting, and appreciating them for exactly who they are … warts and all. Both partners have to feel that way though. Honesty and integrity are key.

But just like developing harmony around the table at the holidays, you have to love yourself first. You have to see your value, your gifts, your unique magnificent glorious self with all its fabulous talents and all its spectacular flaws and love yourself, appreciate yourself, be OK with yourself when you screw up, and delight in yourself when you succeed regardless. You aren’t perfect. You are human. It just comes with the territory.

The more you learn to love, honor, accept, and appreciate you, the easier it is to do the same for others … and the more often others offer the same to you.

Back to harmony at the holidays ….

You can intend a different outcome within your home, around the table, watching the game or whatever rituals your family follows when they gather. Before people arrive you can set your intention (not being attached to it going that way) for harmony, love, happiness, laughter, joy, and fun – or whatever joyful things you wish to experience for yourself and those you love enough to invite into your home.

Fear screws it all up of course. If you are afraid that there will be disharmony … guess what will happen?

You already know the answer.

You get more of what you focus on … so you must divert your attention AWAY from the things you do not want and TOWARD the things you do.

  • Focus on peace and feel it throughout your body and your home.
  • Focus on love and feel it throughout your body and your home.
  • Focus on harmony and feel it throughout your body and your home.
  • Focus on joy and feel it throughout your body and your home.
  • Focus on compassion and feel it throughout your body and your home.
  • Focus on deep, meaningful, conversations and feel it throughout your body and your home.
  • You get the idea … decide what you want to experience and imagine it real.
  • Tip – It is a lot easier to feel something if you close your eyes.

 

LOA Imagine it real

 

Bring In Harmony for the Holidays

Imagine a giant bubble of light surrounding the table where you will eat and calling in your Higher Self and Guides asking that the bubble of light be infused with love, joy, laughter, delight, companionship, harmony, peace, etc. etc.

See a similar bubble around your entire home and again ask your support team to infuse it with harmony, peace, joy, and love. Add the other words that have great meaning to you and that you wish to have in your home.

See a giant block of violet flame or light (like the purple image above only less dense) over a foot thick in front of your entire front door – or whatever door people enter. Everyone who enters will be cleansed of any icky sticky disharmonious, noxious, disempowering, or negative energy as they enter. It’s like taking a beautiful violet light bath. It brightens the mood and feels totally glorious.

Tip – you don’t have to wait for the holidays to do these things. You can do it anytime you desire.

I recommend you energetically clear and infuse your conscious intention into your home, your vehicle, and other places you frequently visit. And I suggest that you do it often. To learn extraordinarily effective clearing and infusing techniques (much more powerful than simple intention), take my online dowsing course or my new Dancing Dolphin Way of Healing and Enlightenment training once I get the sales page up.

Have a delightful day today and every day,

Takara
