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.

Just one moment.

That’s all it takes.

To change absolutely everything.

It literally happens in the blinking of an eye.

Just one …

Divine encounter, past life memory, dream, or experience is all it takes to completely blast through the distortion and delusions of the fear-based existence most people live day in and day out.

When a person has that one Divine moment, all the pretense, the falsehood, the fear, the misinterpretation of the words passed down through eons simply falls gently away. It is the rebirth that religions talk about.  I was 14 when it happened to me. I had another similar experience at 33 and now Divine moments are pretty commonplace in my life.

If more people could experience a life transforming Divine moment, there would be no more war. There would be no need for anger or hatred or condemnation. The fear of death would fall away. There would be empathy, compassion, and the desire to assist others rather than make them wrong. There would be only creativity and joy filled living.

Imagine how your life would change if you no longer feared death?

Those moments don’t happen by reading a book, praying, listing to ranting and raving and other emotional manipulations by a speaker. They happen, always, when you least expect them. And they are profound and they change your life forever.

There is no need to discuss whether abortion is or is not “right.” When you have experienced the Divine, you know reincarnation is real. You know you are eternal. You know that you have lived before and will continue on after this body returns to dust. So the whole conversation about abortion is based on a fear-based illusion that this life is all that there is and if you only believe in some savior, you get to move on. The soul coming into the body is as eternal as you are. It can not die. Just like all energy, it can not be destroyed, it can only change form. If it comes into a body that dies – for whatever reason – it simply comes into another body when the timing is right and the situation will suit its needs as an evolving being.

I find it “interesting” that those who are so adamantly against abortion have no problem taking up arms and killing people from another country or faith, killing animals for food, killing period. Yet the book says “thou shalt not kill.”

So which is it?

“For God and country” is a poor excuse to be brutal, unevolved, arrogant, combative, conquering, and territorial – to force your beliefs on others.

I absolutely know what God (what I call the Divine Presence) wants me to do, be, and experience in each moment. Sometimes its easy to live up to those inner promptings. And sometimes it is bloody hard. I have spent the last 20 years fine-tuning my ability to get the message clearly.

I don’t pretend to know what God’s plan is for you. That is between you and God and it is not up to me, some religion, some book, or anything else.

God is love. God heals. God is all knowing, all loving, everywhere and in all things. God does not have favorites and does not care if you are a card carrying member of this or that religion.

In the west, God is worshiped as a separate being. In the east, they are mostly concerned with the spark of Divinity within. The truth is, both are equally important. God is everywhere and in all things. There is also a spark of Divinity within you and within everyone you meet.

If you treat your own body as a temple, healing the emotional wounds and distortions you hold about things, your relationship with the inner and outer forms of Divinity will improve.

A time does come when you are in total flow. You have fine tuned your intuition and cleared your distortions to such a degree that you know what to say, where to be, and what to do in every moment. It is your Divine birthright to be in this Divine flow with the universe. However, someone can’t “fix” you and get you there. You can have all sorts of assistance. But there are many aspects to the spiritual evolutionary journey that are up to you. You will absolutely be required to forgive people you have not forgiven, do things you are uncomfortable with doing, and have conversations you are not comfortable having. Growth requires change and change is often uncomfortable.

The results are miraculous though – so the discomfort is definitely worth it.

There are those who spontaneously awaken to their spiritual gifts or take a class that turn on certain skills. They might suddenly have visions or be able to read things psychically or facilitate healing. This sudden awakening, without preparation, emotional healing, or energetic clearing often results in arrogance and distortion. I’ve seen so many readers and healers that fall into this category. You don’t want to be one of them.

Clear your space. Clear your mind, emotions and body. Become a pure vessel, a clear vessel, a pristine space where Divinity dwells. If you feel shame, blame, or victimhood, have not forgiven someone, feel hatred, judgment, and prejudice against others, then you have a lot of emotional work to do. That is what Dancing Dolphin Sacred Healing Oils & Mists are for. Let them hold you in a safe, high vibrational space that make healing easier on all levels.

Many blessings to you and your spiritual journey,

Return from the One Divine Moment is All It Takes by Takara Page to the Magnificent U Home Page

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

Freedom

As Americans have gone about celebrating the 4th of July and their liberty and independence from what they considered tyranny and British oppression, I am reminded of the many ways in which humans continue to struggle with freedom in its many forms.

The definition from Dictionary.com – lib·er·ty [lib-er-tee] – noun, plural lib·er·ties.

1. freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.
2. freedom from external or foreign rule; independence.

The past is over… done… gaput…  we don’t get do-overs….  We LEARN from the past… We DON’T, however, get do-overs.  So take what you have learned…. And apply it to the NOW.  It is interesting because I really have never done the “past” thing.  I have (before the past few years) always lived in the future. Living in the NOW has been a difficult transition for me – but I am making the leap…. Well, most of the time.

So why “live in the past”?  Folks do it to have someone to blame, for an excuse not to go forward, remembering that is when things were good for them (at least they remember it that way), they don’t know how to go on,  etc.  What is problematic is… that YOU DON’T GET DO OVERS… IT IS GONE.

The thing to remember if you are one of those folks who keep bringing up a past indiscretion, a past betrayal, etc. is how much of the NOW, the today, your 24 hours that you have in a day… are willing to give to something you cannot change?  If you are giving away your NOW, the person who did the betrayal, etc. wins…. You lose… it is as basic as that.  You don’t need to forgive them… you do, however, need to forgive “the self”  YOU…..  You say, why do I need to do that?  Well because there is always a part of us… could be totally subconscious, that thinks perhaps if we would have done something different, said something different, been something else, then the “act” wouldn’t have happened…. So forgive “the self” and get on with your life.  One way to do that is to figure out what you learned… and YES, you will have always learned something… it might be as basic as “I don’t deserve to be treated like that.”  So don’t be.  Learn from the situation and live in the now.!!!!

So my motto:

Past:  I leaned that whatever happened in my past, made me stronger and wiser.  Everything has experientially made me what I am today.  Bad experiences are equally important as the good ones.  I forgive myself for all the mistakes I did and the people who “wronged” me.

Future: Nobody knows what will happen in their future, and that is the whole point which makes life exciting.  Whatever happens, I know that at the end of it, it will be all right.  I will be happy no matter what and will always have some people by my side who love me for who I am.  I will have more learning experiences like I have had in the past and I will also make many more good memories to remember in the coming time.

Present:  The time I have now will never come back.  I cannot live it again, so why not make the best of today?  I will do whatever makes me happy.  Spread love in the lives of people who share my life.  Whatever decisions I make in my present will affect my future, so I will make my decisions wisely, but I will not worry about the outcome.

My NOW is begging for some coffee… so I will live in the present……

Blaming sets up a situation in which it becomes difficult to move forward and puts resolution in the hands of others…. As we finally start understanding that the world outside of us is a reflection of the world inside of us, we finally begin to understand why we may feel confused about who is to blame for the problems in our lives.

If we had a difficult childhood . . .

we may wonder how we can take responsibility for that?  In our current relationships, the same questions arise….  We all know that blaming others is the opposite of taking responsibility, but we may not understand how to take responsibility for things that we don’t truly feel responsible for.  We may blame our parents for our low self- esteem, and we may blame our current partner for exacerbating it with their unconscious behavior.  This all seems to make sense.  After all, it is not our fault if our parents were irresponsible or unkind and we are certainly not to blame for our partner’s bad behavior….

Sooooooo, perhaps the problem lies with the activity of blaming itself. Whether we blame others or blame ourselves, there is something aggressive and unkind about it.  It sets up a situation in which iy becomes difficult to move forward under the burdensome feelings of shame and guilt that arise.  It also puts the resolution of our pain in the hands of someone other than us.  We cannot insist that someone else take responsibility for their actions; only they can make that choice when they are ready. In the meantime, if we want to move forward with our lives instead of waiting around for something that may or may not happen, we begin to see the “smartness” of taking the situation into our own hands.

We do this—- be forgiving our parents, even if they have not asked for our forgiveness, so that we can be free…. This does NOT have to be in person or a letter… just forgive them…  We end the abusive relationship with our partner, who may never admit to any wrong doing, because we are willing to take responsibility for how we are treated.  In short, we love ourselves as we want to be loved and create the life we know we deserve.  We leave the resolution of the wrongs omitted against us in the hands of the universe, releasing ourselves to live a life free of blame.

So the Blame game is:  a person feels guilty or uncomfortable about something.  That person finds a rationale why someone else is to blame.  That person blames another.  This person gains several benefits from this.  He/she is excused from what they have done (which means they can do it again).  They can play ‘poor me”.  They can also claim social capital over the other person because that person will owe them something in return for their apparent failure.  This game is driven by our need to explain ….  Also the first person gets to play persecutor and gets to have associated pleasant feelings of power….

The Blame games include:

  • Look what you made me do…..
  • If it wasn’t for you…….

All in all… watch out for the “Blame Game”….

We keep us stuck….

I personally do not like this game, do you?

But I must admit – I have played it…. not gonna anymore….

Here’s to “unstuckness”…..

I love this video.

I’ve watched it several times and it moves me each time. I offer it here as a gift to you:

Let it open your heart and your mind to infinite possibilities and to having the courage to do things that are uncomfortable. Amanda Palmer has taken it to such a deeper level than any of the rest of us dare.

Learning to trust that the Universe has your back and is paving the way for your dreams to be fulfilled is a quality, an attribute, a mindset, a skill that must be mastered.

Dare to live your dreams. Dare to realize that you are loved and perfect just the way you are.

You are enough!

Asking for help, and being open and willing to receive, are required to achieve those secret inner longings that you hold.

The Universe (God, the Divine, Creator, etc.) is ready and waiting to help you. You have to ask and you have to trust.

And … you have to believe deep down and on every level that you deserve the help. That is the challenge. That is the lesson. That is the spiritual journey that you are on whether you realize it or not.

Find your faith Dear One! Turn off the fear0based noise inside your head and let the still small voice (your intuition, deeper knowing, images, voices) speak to you, loving and supporting you all the while.

That’s what meditation is for. That is what dowsing is for. Meditation quietens the mind so the still small voice can be heard. Dowsing says to the Universe, “I am ready to receive.” Continued practice of each helps you stay in direct communication with your Higher Self, your I Am Presence, with God, all of the time.

If you’ve been reading the newsletter for awhile, you know I often talk about the subtle signals the Universe is continuously sending your way. Those signals are what prompt you to take the actions necessary to fulfill your mission and achieve your dreams. If you ask the Universe for what you want, and you don’t take the actions you are “inspired” to take, then its almost a guarantee that your dreams will not manifest.

Enhancing your ability to pick up or “tune in” to the signals is, therefore, of paramount importance.

I do several things that enhance my ability to receive the information, know exactly what to do, and when.

1) Daily Meditation.

Do you meditate every single day?

Is your spiritual practice, your commitment to personal and spiritual growth, at the top of your list of priorities?

If its not, it needs to be.

It is so easy to let life pull you in a million directions and to get off track. You skip a day here and a day there. You go on vacation or on a business trip and forget entirely. Next thing you know, its been a few weeks or even months since you connected with the Source of All.

Instead of beating yourself up, simply start again. Realize that you are human – and that’s O.K. We all are.

The shame and blame game serves no-one – particularly you. Judgment of yourself and others is a huge hindrance to finding the “resonance” necessary to be in flow with the Universe.

Anger, judgment, hatred, blame, shame, guilt, victimhood – these are all excuses for not becoming the truth of who you are – you Magnificent Self.

Stick to your spiritual practice and not only will you be able to understand the messages from the Universe, but you will also be in a significantly better position to help others.

2) Care of Self

Rest, exercise, eat right, drink plenty of water, have some time to yourself, enjoy a hobby.

The more stress in your life, the more vital these actions become.

When you are out of balance, frustrated, exhausted, or confused, it is impossible to make good decisions or “read” properly the signals the Universe sends.

You can’t help another until you have helped yourself. You cannot truly love another until you have truly loved (accepted, appreciated, acknowledged) yourself. You cannot forgive another until you have forgiven yourself.

3) Heal the Emotional Pain from Your Past

The more emotionally wounded you are, the more distortions there are in what you receive. The Universe is saying one thing. But your tainted beliefs, fears, and judgments hear something else.

4) Raise Your Vibration

When you work with energy through tools or assistance such as crystals, light, hands-on healing, Dancing Dolphin Energy Products, you are lifted up into a higher octave – above the trouble, struggle, and chaos that is so prevalent in the third-dimensional experience. These things help you align with the Divine.

5) Pendulum Dowsing

As Walt Wood, former President of the American Society of Dowser’s, says: “A pendulum is a focusing device for mother’s intuition. By dowsing on a routine basis, you are sending out a mantra to the Universe that says, “I want your guidance. Thy will not mine. I need help here. I have faith that I am Divinely guided.”

To learn more about dowsing, I have a fabulous online dowsing course with mutiple bonuses including a phone app.

The more you tune in, receive clear guidance, and act in faith, even when the actions aren’t logical, the more you will experience awe-inspiring moments, synchronicity, and miracles both large and small as a natural state of affairs.

  9. I was doing good for a while in meditating every day, but I got away from it, just like you said! Now it’s been a while. I think about it and say, “Maybe tomorrow. I don’t have time right now.” I have also experimented with pendulums a bit. Interesting stuff!

  13. This post really resonated for me, especially this line “You can’t help another until you have helped yourself”…absolutely…self care is so critical. Beautiful, beautiful post.

     

  14. Thanks for sharing – good reminder that being out of balance distorts the messages from the universe!

     

  15. Great tips…number 3 was especially notable to me as that has been a struggle at times in my life! Thank you!

  16. Used to meditate (almost) daily but I’ve started to slack with the holidays and all.

    Good advice perhaps to start doing it again as a resolution for 2013. Thanks for the article, Debbie!

You have to grow into your dreams.

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s to your courage!

Have a deLightful day,

Takara

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

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
