Leading with Your Heart and Not Your Mind – Firewalking for Empowerment

Fire Walking for a Cause by Takara I remember the time I walked on fire. Now some people think about walking on fire and say, “So what?” because it is no big deal. Others look at you like you must be nuts – not being able to imagine doing it and wondering why anyone would want to. I always fell into the first category. When I first heard about firewalking, I knew it was something I could do with little to no effort and certainly no cause for getting all bent out of shape. So I never intended to do it. I had nothing to prove and it didn’t feel like some challenge I needed to overcome. But … Read more

Quote About Anger by Debbie Takara Shelor

Quote by Debbie Takara Shelor   “The anger, judgment, and hatred you feel is not God. It is your ego. It is your fear, limiting beliefs, and lack of love for self and others that you are expressing. It is all the unhealed places within wishing to be illuminated, healed, and forgiven. The demons are not outside of you. They are within.” ~ Debbie Takara Shelor Quote by Bestselling Author Debbie Takara Shelor about Anger and Judgment A quote I encourage you to ponder and think upon whenever you find yourself angry or judging another. This includes politicians, countries, and things in the news. Have a deLightful day,

Beloved by Debbie Takara Shelor

Beloved by Takara How much do you love yourself? What do you feel worthy of receiving? The Goddess is rising and she demands honor, respect, and acknowledgement for her contribution. I’m sure you have been seeing it too. Many of the women I know have been faced recently with a strong desire to dump their boyfriends/husbands. And for the one’s I’ve spoken with, it was usually sparked by a situation where they were just not feeling respected or acknowledged for all the work and energy they give. Luckily for most it was a fleeting thing that allowed them to voice their discontent and acknowledge their needs and desires. The one that matters is you. Read more

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.       *Child image used with permission from his mother.

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, Bestselling author Debbie Takara Shelor signature

Magnificent U Online – Soon to Begin

As I mentioned in the previous newsletter, I’ve spent the last several years “receiving” and developing several new teachings and technologies for healing, regaining harmony, balance, wholeness, and achieving your dreams. Its a massive upgrade to some of my earlier teachings including Freeway to Freedom and the profound transformation so many people have experienced with my various technologies over the years. It is taking everything to a whole new level. I also realized that since Stuart Wilde, my first teacher, is no longer with us, its time to share the powerful things I learned from him.
The training includes a deep dive into relationships, the things you are here to master, how to develop a deep and profound relationship with your Divine Self and the dolphins, greatly fine-tuning and amplifying your intuition so you know where to be, what to say, and what to do in every moment, clearing, energetic protection, and so much more.But before I finalize everything and put it out there, I have two questions for you:
  1. Would you like to start mid-November or would you like to wait until the beginning of January – after the holidays?
  2. If there is something specific you would like to learn about energy healing, becoming healed and whole, or any of the other topics I discuss, please let me know so I can include it in this training.
Please leave a comment below with your answers.
Thanks!

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

I came across this video awhile ago and then it showed up again today.  I believe that every moment of every day our soul is sending us signals and its our job to pay attention. Seeing this extraordinary video twice was definitely a sign. If you know a lot about animal communication, or have never even considered it, this is an extraordinary account of one woman’s ability and the positive difference it makes. Just like the Animal Communicator in this video who has developed and fine-tuned this Divine gift, you too have been given certain gifts and its your job to discover and express them. It may not be animal communication. Whatever it is, finding it and expressing it will absolutely change your life.
