The freedom to be gloriously, deliciously, authentically who you are surrounded by people who love, honor, accept, and appreciate you. Freedom from the facade you’ve created. Freedom to be, have, and experience all that you desire. Freedom from limiting beliefs, fears, judgments, and expectations of yourself and others. Freedom from the past. Freedom from the “box” that is your comfort zone, your belief system, and your limiting mental prison.

Alan Watts on Awakening with a Fabulous Video

So many wonderful videos are coming out now about enlightenment, our deep connection with the environment, and so much more.

This is a powerful speech given by Alan Watts. The video was created by Tragedy and Hope who used the audio by permission of alanwatts.org.

The speech, all by itself, is truly profound. With the visuals, it adds another depth of meaning and understanding.

I trust you will enjoy this invitation and explanation of awakening.

Metamorphosis and Transformation Sometimes Looks Like “Stuckness”

Metamorphosis and Transformation Sometimes Look Like Stuckness

“Sometimes it seems as if nothing is happening in your life, like you are stuck, or being held back by some unknown force … when in fact REAL magic is afoot!” ~ Debbie Takara Shelor

 

To Circumsize or Not to Circumsize – Saving Chase

Here is a thorny subject – for some a subject so taboo they won’t even talk about it – on the “rightness” or “wrongness” of genital mutilation. We scream and say “you are such bad people” when we read about how it is done to women across the globe. Yet here in the U.S. and other Western nations, it happens every single day to baby boys.

A judge ordered a child’s Guardian to circumcise a 4 year old boy. You can read more about that here: http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/pulp/2014/11/court_circumcision_4-year-old.php

And here is the campaign about it on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/357342571110808/

SavingChase

I personally believe that the human body was created in perfection – at least as we have evolved thus far. The systems and features are of a good design and when the body is born without defects and is fed “good” food, pure water, the body gets plenty of rest, sun light, and exercise, it is a magnificent biological machine that operates amazingly well.

My mom used to say whenever I asked for pierced ears, “If God wanted holes in your head, he would have put them there.” There were a lot of rules like that at my house. So I moved out the day after I graduated high school and had my ears pierced that evening. LOL.

I believe that if the male body was not supposed to have foreskin, it wouldn’t.

Your response might be, “Yes, but in the bible it says, … ”

Well there’s the rub. Either you believe that Divine Creator (God by whatever name) knows what its doing or you don’t.

There are tons of good reasons NOT to mutilate the genitals of young boys that include both psychological well being as well as body functionality. Complications from this surgery does cause death and permanent health issues for some patients every year. Here are just a few: http://www.intactamerica.org/resources/decision.

The only reason to circumcise is fear of displeasing an angry judgmental God and to conform to society’s expectation that you appease this angry judgmental God. Yet the bible also says God is love.

I personally don’t worship an angry judgmental God that forces you to abuse your children.

But hey, that’s just me.

Spirit: A Journey in Dance, Drums, and Song by Robert Mirabel

Robert-Mirabel-Spirit

Once someone has become “awake” and aware that they are a spiritual being having a human experience, they often go down various trails of belief or philosophy in order to understand their true Divine nature.

My awakening happened over 20 years ago in the midst of an intense life experience. I was jolted out of my spiritual slumber and forgetting who I am into full knowledge that there is significantly more to life than what I wear, my job title, the people I hang out with, or the things that I do. Life, and my purpose in experiencing it, are vastly deeper than that.

The first trail I went down was that of Native American spirituality and shamanism. I listened to native drumming, built medicine wheels, visited the Southwestern United States along with many other sacred locations, took endless shamanic journeys through meditation, did sweat lodges, mini vision quests, and learned to commune with nature.

Better put, I remembered how to commune. The truth is, the ability to connect with and “be” with nature is innate to all of us.

As I look back on my life, I realize this desire to understand the native people and their connection with earth, air, sky, and water started much earlier than that. In fact, growing up in Texas, whenever we played cowboys and Indians, I was ALWAYS an Indian. Somehow deep down, there has always been a “call” and a connection to the indigenous cultures of the world.

The more I spent time in meditation and learned to connect with animals, trees, flowers, stones, water, fire, etc., the more enhanced and fine-tuned my intuition became. That inner guidance system lead me to people and experiences that were far from ordinary. On several occasions, while walking down a trail in Sedona, Arizona, or at the womb spring in Chimayo, NM, or on a hike to the falls in Tesuque, New Mexico, I’ve had spontaneous past life memories of being native.

I married a man who lead people on sacred hikes in New Mexico and also sweat lodges on our property. Because of this, I was quite blessed to have Shaman and indigenous medicine people from all over the world spend time at my home, break bread at my table, share their wisdom over stories and laughter.

We used to have a copy of this video and often showed it to those who came to visit our home.

I was reminded recently of this video by Robert Mirabel of Spirit: A Journey in Dance, Drums, and Song. I began watching it and by the 3rd song, I was in tears. Something about this video just touches me on such a deep level there simply are no words. I trust you will enjoy it too!

Thank you Robert Mirabel for this incredible work of meaning and art.

Have a fabulous day,

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!

When the American Dream Becomes a Living Nightmare

The American Dream Becomes a Living Nightmare by Debbie Takara Shelor

 

Take a good long look at your priorities.

Eventually, one day some day you realize that relationships are so much more important than the type of car you drive, the title you have at work, or how big your house it.

And trust me – I’ve had all those things. I used to travel by limo to New York City, drive a fancy gold sports car and then a red one. I have no way to count the number of ski trips I’ve taken staying in cliff side condos with roaring fireplaces and fine wine. I had the clothes and fancy dinners and on and on. I lived the American dream. I had the car, and the guy, and the job that everyone else was clamoring for.

But I was stressed beyond capacity and I was miserable. No-one else knew. I didn’t even know it. I had buried my emotions so fully that I didn’t recognize the truth of my situation. But just before the dam broke, and the truth came crashing out, there were tell tell signs everywhere. Like the day when one of my employees stopped me and said “You look awful. (Of course that is never a good thing to say to a women) This past year you have aged 10 years.” Oh God, and I had to look in the mirror and agree with him. Stress was killing me – emotionally, mentally, and physically. And there was no way to get out of the pressure cooker and still maintain the job and the life style. I was stuck. And you probably are as well.

But my soul had other plans. I didn’t come here to live and die by the American dream. I came here to do much more than that. I came here to find happiness. I came here to rediscover the truth – about God, about myself, about what is possible, about what really matters.

American Dream Quote by Debbie Takara Shelor

Developing inspiring close personal relationships, growing personally and spiritually, making a positive difference in other people’s lives, finding peace and happiness within are the things that will fulfill you.

You can continue to seek fame and fortune, another techno gadget that costs a mint, and yet another new car, or you can figure out when you have attained enough. What do you require to be happy? What do you require to be fulfilled, to feel nurtured, to enjoy your life? And then you can stop spending, going further into debt, and begin to share what you have with others.

There is nothing wrong with wanting luxury. But you must bring it back into balance. And you can’t let your having it or not having it define your happiness. Rediscover who you are. Get really clear about what makes you happy?

You have to grow up and evolve.

Trying to live the American Dream is killing many people. It could be killing you

There is more suicide and more disease than ever before. Debt and deadlines are not the way to happiness and fulfillment. The dam has broken and flooded our world.

In my life the dam breaking allowed me to find truth, get really clear and realign my priorities. You, and the rest of the world, have that same opportunity.

The wake up calls will continue to grow stronger until everyone gets it. First it was the World Trade Center. Later on it was tsunamis or something else. What will tomorrow bring?

Ask your higher self, your guides, your angels, your God, to Illuminate your self and your life. You will be amazed at what you begin to see and understand.

There is a giant party happening on both sides of the veil

The New Year promises to be quite something. This is the most exciting time ever experienced on planet earth. We all CHOSE to be right here right now. It is time for celebrating. And everyone on the other side of the veil – those millions and billions of beings that are there to assist you the moment you ask – for anything, at any time, always – are celebrating what is happening here.

It is the time of the Great Illumination and the Great Awakening. Wake up. Wake up. Stop your slumber. Stop living under the illusion. Open your eyes and see the truth. Click your glasses and enjoy the champagne.

Blessings to you always,

Experiencing a Magical Time of Camelot in Your Own Life

Camelot by Dancing Dolphin

I had my own little private Camelot for awhile. Life was grand. It was a magical time. I had tons of friends. I had a great guy. I was a cheerleader. I seemed to be good at almost everything I tried – dancing, acting, academics. I absolutely loved my life. I was happy and life worked.

And then we moved.

I might have done better jumping off a cliff.

I had lived in a few places previously, went to different schools in various parts of the country. But I had never before experienced cliques.

I went to Urban Dictionary to make sure I was spelling clique right. This is what they had to say: “Clique – Why i wish i wasn’t a teenager – A group, typically of teens, who exclude all who don’t fit into their stereotypical image of perfection, and conform to all the rules of this “perfection”. Often think they are showing outstanding originality and individuality, when they are in fact exactly the same. And this is the same for all subcultures. Usually hate “opposing” clique for no good reason other than they perceive/have been told that this is the right thing to do. Like to label people, so they don’t have to regard each human as an individual.” (I love Urban Dictionary, its the only place I know to look for what all those goofy little initials mean in text messages)

I went home in tears practically every day for almost a year. No matter what I tried – how I dressed, what I did, who I talked to, what I said, it just never seemed to work. I was miserable.

My heart and happiness were somewhere else – stuck in a tiny town in New Jersey. And slowly over time all those I loved in New Jersey began to write less and less and eventually not at all. Out of sight, out of mind I decided. (This was, of course, before cell phones, text messaging, live chats on Facebook, the internet, and email – a time when long distance calls were expensive. So we wrote letters. Too funny! No wonder we lost touch.)

It’s not like every single moment of every single day was terrible. I had many great times too. I made a few good friends. I went out with some really wonderful guys. I created numerous fond memories.

But rejection and having people say cruel things to and about you is a hard thing. I eventually learned to be cruel back – which was even worse. Being unkind is fundamentally against my nature.

I just couldn’t wait to get out. So, I moved out of that town and into my own apartment the day after I graduated from High School.

And as soon as I got out, the magic began again. I soon had many new friends. I met a great guy and was engaged almost immediately. I had a job that I enjoyed and it paid well. I was getting a degree from a great school. I was President of the student Chapter of the Institute of Industrial Engineers at Virginia Tech. We had 300 members. Obviously to hold a position like that, I had attained a certain level of popularity.

No-one’s life works all of the time. But it can always be more magical and more fun. Sometimes the day to day can be difficult and we lose our zest and passion for life.

We all want to be happy and to have our life work. That’s why I make the products I make and offer the technologies I create.

Do you remember a Camelot time in your own life? – A time when you were happy, you were acknowledged and appreciated, and your life seemed to work. It’s time to reclaim it now with The Essence of Camelot and the accompanying CD by Richard Shulman from which it was created.

Camelot Reawakened is an awared winning CD with full orchestra and vocals. The melodies and musical soundscapes literally take you into a magical place.

With or without the music, the essence is fabulous! Life seems magical when you are bathed in that frequency. It is one of my favorites. Synchronicity seems to increase. I always get better parking spots when I have it on. And it puts me in a great mood. A friend of mine put some on before giving a massage. She was exuding such a happy presence that her client said, “I want some of whatever you’ve been doing.”

Let’s all get back to Camelot, shall we?

You Can Be Magnificent ~ Interview Audio with Takara

I was recently interviewed on Inner Guide Empowerment Radio at the Awakening Zone with Brad Simkins.

This is what was written about the interview by my dear friend, Cyndie Lepori:

Join Takara as she takes us deep into meditation with the Journey with the Orcas. Takara tells us how to create a magnificent life full of Joy, Happiness, and Miracles. She speaks about how she started creating miracles for herself and how you can do it also. She tells of getting her divorce in one hour and 15 minutes by following her intuition. Takara discusses the importance of clearing, she discusses how to look at everything to clear it and the importance of and how it affects our manifestation. Takara talks about how she sat down with God and cleared old beliefs that stood in her way.

She lists the 4 Cs and how to do each one. Then she discusses the 4 states of being and how to achieve them. She lists and discusses the 5 essential practices to do every day. She discusses the benefits, and how it can increase your intuition, synchronicities, and start creating miracles in your life. If you go to her site www.magnificientu.com there are gifts and free downloads for your use. The last thing that she talks about is the importance of others when you are in crisis and how helpful it is to have a friend that you can talk to during your journey. A very fun and informative program!
