Abusers Are Losers - Get Them Out of Your Life Pronto!

Abusers Are Losers - Get Them Out of Your Life Pronto!

NO amount of abuse, whether it be physical, mental/emotional, or spiritual/energetic, is acceptable. Any time you are not being (feeling) loved, honored, accepted, and/or appreciated for who you are, it is often a sign that abuse of one kind or another is happening.

I’ve been through various forms of abuse myself and thankfully I’ve healed, moved on, and lived to tell the tale. Over the years I’ve also worked with hundreds of clients who were facing similar issues. There is a saying that goes, “Religion is for people who are afraid of going to hell, Spirituality is for people who have already been there.” Many who turn to spirituality, metaphysics, energy healing, alternative/complementary medicine, etc. do it to heal issues that, whether they realize it or not, began because of abuse of one form or another.

I’ve written many articles about who you allow into your inner circle. I can’t stress enough how truly important that is for your health and physical / mental / emotional / and spiritual wellbeing.

Who and what you allow in says to your subconscious mind, the Universe, and those around you what you desire and deserve.

Every time you allow abuse, you are saying: “I deserve that. I am not worthy of being honored, loved, respected, and appreciated. I am not lovable”

Those are horrendous affirmations and they must stop NOW!

Because, Dear One, they are absolute LIES!

You are magnificent!
You are an embodiment of Divinity walking on planet earth!
You deserve everything – to be happy, healthy, and successful as you define success!
You are a precious gift and you deserve all that you desire.

Not sticking up for yourself is also abusive. It’s you abusing yourself, saying you don’t deserve better.

And yet, when you are in it, you feel:

  • stressed,
  • afraid,
  • less than,
  • unworthy, and/or
  • unlovable

No matter how smart, or seemingly successful you are, you often can’t see a way out. Or, as a defense mechanism, you don’t even allow yourself to see or recognize that you are being abused.

Abuse of any kind causes damage not only to self esteem, but also to the energy field (aura) around you. When the energy field is damaged – ripped, shredded or torn – all sorts of icky sticky energy can “get in” and then you have even more disharmonious/noxious stuff to deal with.

If you find yourself in an abusive situation, call on a friend and ask for support from the Universe (God by whatever name), and get out as fast as possible! Find a place to step back into wholeness that is safe.

Learning to Ride the Waves of Life

RideWavesSm

Things are moving fast these days. Events are occurring that you never anticipated. Dear friends are suddenly ill or dead. Happy kids are suddenly severely depressed to the point of suicide. You lose your job after 20 years. There is a car wreck here and an accident or illness there. What the heck is happening?

Well, it isn’t just the acceleration of what you might deem “bad.” Everything is accelerating including your ability to heal and your ability to grow personally and expand your consciousness.

Magic is everywhere and it is exhilarating – or it is horrible. And the choice is entirely up to you.

Have you noticed that I keep writing about the options you have about life?

Here are some things that I believe that are in direct contradiction to what most people believe. You can believe what I believe. Or you can believe something else. It doesn’t matter to me. But I know that what I believe works. It allows me to be hopeful. And it allows me to consciously alter my reality at will. O.K. I’m not able to alter ever single little thing I want when I want. But boy am I getting better at it all the time.

So here are some of the things I have grown to understand.

  • There are no victims.
  • There is no-one and nothing outside of you that has a greater influence on your life, your well-being, your level of health or prosperity or happiness, than you yourself – what you believe subconsciously is what makes your life happen the way it does. Of course, there are a few other little nuances that I explain in The Magnificent U Foundation Course, but your subconscious beliefs run the show.
  • God does not play favorites.
  • God is not masculine or feminine. The term God is so misunderstood and so distorted that I don’t even like to use it anymore. I prefer the term Divine Presence.
  • You are a sinner. But the term “sin” means incorrect thinking. What you believe, subconsciously, is not the divine Truth about Creator, about life, about yourself even. I believe everyone on the planet is a sinner – having warped beliefs. All you need to do is recognize your own distortions of the truth and heal them. And there are beings much more evolved than you, including Jesus Christ of the Light, who can be called on to assist you in that process.
  • The Golden Rule works. If you treat others kindly and you consider the possible impact on others when you say, or do, or even think something, then you will be showered with kindness by others. The kindness must be genuine. If you perform acts of kindness in order to satisfy one of your wounds – like the need to be needed for example – then it is NOT a true act of kindness. If you have expectations of how others will treat you if you treat them a particular way, then you are attached to the outcome. So it is NOT a true act of kindness. True acts of kindness can only come from someone who has healed their own wounds. And most people have not. Even popular teachers and channels and counselors must heal themselves first. As one of my early teachers, Stuart Wilde, used to say: “God forbid the healers.” Because you are drawn to what you need most. If you want to be a counselor or healer, then you need a great deal of counseling and healing yourself. And you will never be able to truly offer helpful and beneficial counsel or facilitate healing for others until you have healed your own wounds and “sins.” And the golden rule continues to apply. If you treat others badly, harming them in any way, then you will have nothing but pain and suffering later on in life. The black magician pays a thousand fold for his or her mistreatment of others. Those who are bitter and jealous and angry and vengeful are showered with the same. It is law. And it is so easy to recognize the course of action that leads to Light and joy and happiness. Is it not?
  • Forgive everyone for everything. It is the only thing that serves you. And besides, whatever you experience you called to yourself anyway. They just played out what your subconscious mind was broadcasting to the world. You might have been broadcasting, “I believe life is unfair” or “I believe the world is unsafe.” Whatever you believe, you will experience.

Which leads me back to the main topic at hand. Whatever you experience, you have created. Your beliefs drew to you the people, the circumstances, the unexpected things that are happening at rocket speed in your life right now.

So what can you do about it?

Well, you need to learn to surf. Ride the wave instead of crashing and being pounded under the surf and left for dead, beaten and battered on the shore.

Have you ever seen Lilo and Stitch? Great movie on many levels. Stitch is a created destroyer being from some distant galaxy that was sentenced to death because he was programmed to destroy. He escaped and fled to a little island named Hawaii on a little planet called Earth where he pretended to be a dog and became the pet of a little girl going through a great deal of emotional turmoil. When it seemed things couldn’t get any worse, a friend suggested that when there is nothing else, there is always surfing. So they all head for the beach. Stitch is terrified of water and big waves would be intimidating to anyone.

Everything you need to know about surfing through life is captured in Stitches expressions and his experience. At first there is terror. It is the unknown. Once you are on the board you either have to stay on it or you will be pounded in the surf, there are no other options. He hangs on for dear life to the leg of the older sister. And slowly he realizes that she knows what she is doing and that they aren’t going to crash. Then comes the euphoria and exhilaration of riding the wave, hair blowing in the breeze, there is nothing like it. It is grand. It is wonderful. It is better than anyone could have dreamed.

And that is what your life can be.

When the unexpected happens, you have to step into the unknown. The waves are crashing. You have no choice about that. You can get on the board and try to ride or you can give up and be pounded by the waves. Its entirely your choice. In order to ride, you have to fully feel the uncertainty and discomfort of where you are. And then you have to follow your intuition, your inner guidance, your inner knowing, and TRUST that it knows what its doing and that everything is as it should be. It is scary. It can even be terrifying. And you might be thinking, “What is going to happen to me?” Or, “What is going to happen to the one I love so much that is going through this awful experience?” But when you can go beyond the circumstances and the uncertainty and feel the exhilaration of each moment right here right now, magic happens.

Forget about “what if.” Forget about how you think life is suppose to be. Forget about what others would do. Forget about what you thought this moment was going to look like. Know that this moment looks like this instead. You have all of who you are, all of your talents, all of your gifts, all of your insight, all of your wisdom, all of your courage, all of your strength, all of your beauty, all of your truth to trust in. You have the whole host of heaven to assist you. You have your inner guidance – the most perfect navigation system ever designed every second of every day. You have your close and dear friends who truly do have your best interest at heart (and if you don’t have those kind of people in your life, you need to find some).

And you ask the most important question in the universe: “Why is this happening?” And you dig and you dig and you dig until you find the true answer and permanently heal the reason the circumstances showed up in your life. And in that moment of healing, who you are is changed forever. And then the circumstance that at first seemed like the worst thing that could ever happen, turned into the most exhilarating, most empowering, most beneficial thing that has ever happened to you.

What a gift. What a blessing.

I send you the love of the Universe to assist you in discovering all the “whys” you must face. You are no longer in a time of hiding. You can no longer pretend and cover up and deny the parts of yourself that are not the divine Truth. You are now in the time of the Great Illumination.

And I say, “Ride the wave with a smile on your face. Feel the wind in your hair. Feel the exhilaration of who you are becoming right here right now.”

Many blessings,
Takara signature

In Pursuit of the Spiritual

In Pursuit of the Spiritual

I decided to watch the Ironman event televised from Hawaii. Thanks to a former boyfriend, I know a great deal about professional cycling and events like the Tour de France. I had never watched the Ironman before, but it definitely brought back memories. What is it about these events that hold so much appeal for me?

They are noble. And they are very much like the pursuit of a spiritual quest.

The men and women who participate in these events are absolutely the epitome of physical strength and endurance. They are dedicated. What was it the announcer said about why they participate?

“They come to find out what they are made of. It takes passion, courage, and determination.

And he is right. They are warrior athletes. Their life is dedicated to the perfection of their body and their skill. And in the race, it often comes down to what’s in their mind. Mental strength wins every time.

Have you ever watched the Tour de France?

Hour after hour, day after day, they ride. It doesn’t matter what the weather is. It doesn’t matter what the other racers are doing. They each have to do it on their own. Sure they have support from people in a van with food, water, spare tires and encouragement. But no one is out there riding for them.

They see the ridiculously challenging mountain ahead of them and they have a choice. Do they continue with “their journey,” riding their best, trusting that they have what it takes to finish, or do they quit?

If they continue, do they do it at less than their best, letting the physical pain and exhaustion overshadow their desire to succeed? Or do they ignore what’s happening in their body, in their surroundings, and stay in a centered place looking always at the goal and going after it with everything they’ve got?

Those are questions I will also ask of you?

What is a spiritual journey about anyway?

There are a million different spiritual paths and spiritual journeys to take in order to get there.

Where is a Spiritual Journey leading to?

Each path is leading to freedom and joy.

What kind of freedom?

The freedom to be who you truly are – a Divine being without limitations of any kind. A person walking around completely in union in every moment with Spirit.

In that space there is only love, there is only joy, there is only compassion, there is only perfect health, there is only peace, there is only abundance, and there is only the desire to assist other humans in achieving the same.

There is no room for lack, for fear, for worry, for war, or for strife.

If that is the end result you are attempting to attain, then . . .

What is required to get there?

Can you just sit at home, read a few books, take a few seminars, pray, hold a few crystals and experience instant enlightenment?

The answer is a very big NO!

It requires dedication. It means finding out what you are made of. It takes passion, courage, and determination.

It is a quest well worth the effort. But, just like the Ironman or the Tour de France, few athletes ever even get to participate in those events. Most people don’t have what it takes.

How dedicated are you to your spiritual quest?

What have you done that proves you are totally dedicated?

For me, the greatest metaphor for the spiritual journey is the quest for the holy grail which includes knights slaying dragons and facing numerous other perils. When the going gets tough, the best still persist.

How many dragons have you slain lately?

During the course of my conscious spiritual journey, I’ve done what I consider to be some pretty amazing and scary things.

For two and a half years, without exception, I arose at 4 a.m. and meditated, did yoga, and prepared for my day.

I felt inner prompting to do things and go places that felt very uncomfortable. Yet I followed the inner promptings and was exhilarated by each one.

I rode horses bareback and blindfolded. I walked on fire. I ran at top speed blindfolded down a hill that ended at a huge cliff that dropped into the raging ocean below.

I left a perfectly good job with very high pay to travel across the country to live in a place I’d never visited before and to start a nonprofit for dolphins and whales.

And if that isn’t enough insanity, after seeing a guy only 4 times I asked him to move in with me. I didn’t even know his last name. Yes it was Raven – my former husband.

O.K. so I’m daring. I follow my intuition. And I’ve done some physical things that prove I’ve got some spiritual dedication.

But what about the REALLY hard stuff?

The things I’ve already mentioned are actually quite easy compared to facing the real dragons.

What Are The Real Dragons You Must Face?

What about looking at every facet of yourself and seeing the truth. What do you fear deep down inside? What beliefs do you hold, false beliefs, which are holding you back at every turn? Who and what do you judge as wrong or bad or it shouldn’t be that way? What happened in your childhood, or even a past life, that you haven’t REALLY gotten over?

You can’t just face these dragons. You have to slay them.

This is where you get to discover if you are truly dedicated to the spiritual quest and will actually achieve freedom and joy. Or are you just another weekend athlete with a dream you’ll never actually pursue?

People often call to ask me questions about my various products. When we start discussing Dancing Dolphin Formula #28 for Fear and Core Issues, I explain that these essences help those dragons come fully to the surface. At this point the person usually laughs, you can sense their tension, and they say they aren’t sure they want to look at those things.

Ah, but isn’t that the real challenge of the quest?

What the Spiritual Journey Requires of You

Without looking at the shadow, the fear, the thing you are sorry and ashamed that you did or said, you are only pretending to be spiritual.

The spiritual journey requires that you face those things head on, that you discover your weaknesses, that you heal the wounds, that you forgive even what or whom may seem unforgiveable – including yourself.

It requires that you take responsibility for the part you have played in every thing and event that has ever happened in your life. It requires that you learn to rise above circumstances and even your own weaknesses to do what you know is right – even when that is downright and sometimes paralyzingly uncomfortable.

It requires a great deal of maturity, responsibility, compassion, and over and over again forgiveness.

As long as there are dragons, they have to be slain (looked at, learned from, and dismissed forever). Otherwise the end result can never be attained.

Are You Truly a Spiritual Warrior or Are You Just Pretending?

Who have you refused to forgive?

In which event from your past do you still feel like you were a victim?

What issues, situations, or people can instantly press your sadness or anger buttons?

If you give up when having to face those situations, then you are just pretending that you are dedicated to your spiritual journey. You are simply being an armchair observer instead of a full out warrior participant.

The dragons show up as the things that aren’t working in your everyday life.

Make the commitment to yourself and to Spirit to face them head on.

Ask for help – it is there in every moment.

And never ever ever give up.

Here’s to your journey,

Every 10 years or so I seem to do what feels like quantum leaping in my personal evolutionary journey.

I was 33 when I “woke up” spiritually and dropped out of the mainstream of thought about religion and everything else. I was blessed with healers, teachers, advisers, books, and workshops that magically showed up to help me through those changes.

At 43, I went through some very intense initiation processes that involved extraordinary circumstances, energetics, and people in Mt. Shasta, CA, Bimini, the Bahamas Out Islands, and Sipapu, NM. In Mt. Shasta, some truly extraordinary people showed up to help accelerate my progress up the consciousness scale. In Bimini, it was the cetaceans who facilitated my download/upgrade. At Sipapu, I “brought in” (channeled) the energy and information directly.

It took a full ten years and significant healing in order to fully integrate and be able to utilize the information and energies bestowed upon me in Bimini, Mt. Shasta, and Sipapu. My dear friend and mentor, Milie Stefani, was there every step of the way – including walking with me through the deeply painful growth experiences of dealing with an unfaithful husband and eventual divorce.

At the last Equinox, I turned 53 and for the past several months I have been shifting and changing once again at an accelerated pace. A great deal of information and energetics now come to me directly.

However, there are powerful companions walking with me through these doorways in consciousness and awareness, holding space for me to step even more fully into the truth of who I am, and “tuning in” and helping with the clearing of old patterns and programs, as well as the reception of new information. It is very much a collaboration this time around with others of like mind.

If you are trying to walk your path alone, then you are doing yourself a huge disservice. Certain things require another. And if that other person is at a high level of consciousness, the changes are vastly more effective.

I can offer you a significantly higher view.  Get on the mailing list and get my free eBook. It’s at the top right. Enjoy!

I know you will love the things I share in this recording of my interview for the Living Your Vibrant Life Telesummit including the truly life changing “Stepping into Your True Magnificence” meditation exercise, along with many insights and TONS of inspiration for living Your Vibrant Life that I shared.

I really enjoy being interviewed for telesummits, webinars, and radio. Much like working with private clients or speaking from a stage with a live audience, there is a “connection” that occurs which allows me to just “get out of the way” and let the information flow through me that is exactly what the individual or particular audience needs to hear in the moment.

In this telesummit interview, Tandy Elisala and I discuss some powerful conscious manifestation techniques. I also share insights about ways to turbo boost your meditation practice. I discuss the 4 states of being you want to achieve and the 5 practices I recommend everyone utilize to grow personally and accelerate their spiritual journey.

Everyone has something that they are extraordinary at. Whether its breathtakingly difficult like the skills on this video or as simple as having immense patience when others do you … you too can be magnificent and lead an extraordinary life!

Someone on Facebook said they really missed Michael Jackson.

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

This was my response:

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

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

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

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

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

The energy of his music brought joy to the space. 

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

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

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

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

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

Have a deLightful day,

The impact one person can have on a life is mind-boggling. At a time when I was in the pit of despair, I felt “inspired” to visit a New Age bookstore for the first time. How I found the courage to do that is a miracle in itself. I read the title of every book on every shelf in the entire store. I discovered whole sections of information I never knew existed. But nothing seemed to jump out and grab me with the desire to take it home.

I was literally down on my knees with my face almost touching the floor trying to read the books on the bottom shelf in this one area of the store and I came across the book, Affirmations, by Stuart Wilde. Now what you have to realize is that I grew up with a Southern Baptist mom. I’d never ever studied anything even remotely alternative, and here I was bowing down on my knees basically begging for answers and Stuart Wilde entered my life.

Once I’d read Affirmations, I came back for all the rest. I read every book he had out at the time. Then listened to every audio I could get my hands on. I can’t tell you how many times I listened to the crystal cave meditations in 33 Steps Beyond the Earth Plane. Like Stuart, I am able to go into a theta brain-wave state with my eyes open. I call it “clicking into theta.”

I found out from a friend that Stuart was going to be giving a talk in Princeton. I was living in Pennsylvania at the time and decided to make the drive to see him live. After the lecture, I discovered information on a table somewhere about his 8-day Warriors in the Mist training. It was a no-brainer to sign up to attend.

That’s me on the bottom left here with my Arban at Warriors in the Mist in the beautiful Sangre de Christo Mountains of New Mexico.

Stuart Wilde Serving Food at the Final Feast for Warriors in the Mist

As you would expect, it was an awesome experience full of wisdom, insight, mystery, lots of fun, and a fair bit of mayhem – just enough to take you out of your comfort zone in a way that only Stuart could pull off with as much flair. I made a few life-long friends there.

Me on our first day of horseback riding at Warriors in the Mist

Khris Krepcik, the hooded sage, whom Stuart became very close to, was in my Arban (the group we were divided into for the training). I believe it was the first time they ever met.

Again I’m on the left … hmm I wonder if that means something? LOL (Of course from my perspective facing the camera), I would have been on the right.

Our Arban won the overall competition despite the fact that we were all leaders and there seemed to be no followers. We had a very hard time agreeing on a course of action as we went through the various spiritual warrior training exercises throughout the week. We were able, finally, to work as a team during the competition and when it really mattered, we won.

I met a woman there doing what I considered to be a noble project – trying to assist an orca in captivity to return to her wild pod in the San Juan Islands. Soon after the training, I left my life as a corporate engineer and moved to the San Juans to co-found a non-profit with her for dolphins and whales.

I lived first on an island, then on a sacred mountain, after that in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico (a place I fell in love with during Warriors in the Mist). I even lived on a million dollar yacht in the South Pacific for a while. In each of these locations, I spent hours communing with nature and meditating often.

I went from Stuart’s theta meditation and metaphysical teachings on to many more. Once I left the environment of the corporation, I began to delve very deeply into metaphysics, spirituality, inner peace, energetic and emotional healing, Divine connection, flowing with the Universe, receiving Divine insights and wisdom directly.

My life has been a glorious adventure and I’m now a bestselling author myself.

Now teaching my own students about advanced energy healing techniques, metaphysics, spirituality, personal empowerment, etc., I often share stories about Stuart and talk about things he taught me, as well as his version of modern-day Toaism. I come back to it again and again in my own personal evolution.

Stuart showed up at precisely the right time and when I jumped off the cliff with his help, I learned to fly.

I believe the image on the cover of his book, The Quickening, is based on this quote: “Come to the edge.’ ‘We can’t. We’re afraid.’ ‘Come to the edge.’ ‘We can’t. We will fall!’ ‘Come to the edge.’ And they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.” ~ Christopher Logue

I think of him often. It always makes me smile.

Much love to you Dear One wherever you are for all that you are and all that brought to my life.

Have a deLightful day,

Takara

P.S. If you knew Stuart Wilde, or just appreciated his wisdom, humor, and metaphysical finesse, leave a comment below letting us know how he impacted your life! And if you were in my Arban and in one of the photos above, PLEASE send me a message. I would love to reconnect with those I haven’t been able to keep up with over the years.

You are on a hero’s journey. Your life is your quest. The events that make up your daily life experience are the hurdles and obstacles you have to climb, conquer, and find a way to overcome to reach your desired destination. No hero starts out that way. They begin as some ordinary, unassuming person from a village somewhere. Then something horrible happens. There is a big issue or situation that has been suddenly thrust upon them.

So the hero in the making sets off into “zones unknown” as Dean Black puts it. He/she has to decide the quest is worth it, often facing a fairly high level of fear and trepidation along the way. They have to leave the comfort and security of what they know and understand and head out to see and experience people and situations that they never even knew existed when they were back in the village.

The hero has to do things they never thought they could. They have to reach deep down inside themselves and find the strength and courage to deal with whatever comes their way.  It’s not for the faint of heart. And yet, you are already on such a quest even if you don’t realize that you are.

If you are unhealthy, unhappy, or unsuccessful, then those are the obstacles on your path right now. Most things like that don’t just jump up and surprise you. They were a long time in the making. In fact, it might have been several generations in the making.

Nothing of any consequence is achieved overnight. It takes considerable time and effort and it often requires help.

If you are one of those people who thinks you can do it all on your own, then listen up:  If you had the tools, confidence, and knowledge necessary to fix the problem on your own, you would have done so already! Would you not?

You can be healthy.

You can be happy.

You can be successful – however you define success.

The only thing you have to change is the one thing that you truly can . . . and that is you!

Sin is wrong thinking. Thinking that sickness, poverty, disappointment, and struggle are “normal” or inevitable is wrong thinking.

There is an idea that says you are the sum total of the 5 people you hang out with the most. Think about it. Who are they? What is their life like? What do they think about? How kind are they? What do they feel is important? What do they judge? What do their income level, education, and dreams about the future look like? And is that what you want for yourself?

You don’t have to replace all your friends to shift this. You can begin the process by feeding your mind new information through books, articles, audios, videos, and workshops. Make nature one of your friends. Spend time each day in quiet contemplation, in silence, in meditation. Journal your thoughts, your insights, the new things you are learning.

If you want to change, then you have to step out of the comfort zone of the people you hang out with and do something different. I prefer the radical approach. I liken it to jumping into the deep end of the pool without first sticking your toe in to see how cold the water is. You move across the country or even the world. You marry a foreigner. You leave the corporate world and strike out on your own. That’s my way.

Why?

Because the idea of being anything less than my full potential is just not O.K. with me.

Most people can’t handle the insecurity of such a radical lifestyle. I happen to thrive on it. It proves to me that if I can do those things, then there is no reason I can’t also achieve all of my dreams. If I can muster up the courage to start my own business, then becoming a bestselling author is also within reach. If I can jump on a plane to live aboard a million dollar yacht in Fiji, then manifesting a more luxurious lifestyle has to also be possible for me.

When I made the bestseller list, it was both exciting and surprising. Surprising because this is not the book that I thought would be the “big one.” I was convinced that the big one was one of the books in the 5-book New Dance series that I’m currently penning. So, I wasn’t attached to this book being a bestseller. And that is probably why it became one. I was not all wrapped up emotionally in its success. Even though it was a bit exciting, it was also fairly anticlimactic. O.K. I now have the title. What now?

Even though I wasn’t emotionally attached to the outcome, I knew I had to do whatever I felt Divinely guided to do in order to get it out there. What it required of me was definitely outside of my comfort zone. I had to muster up the courage to do things I was uncomfortable with. But that’s what it took to achieve the thing. So that’s what I did. It was definitely not easy. And most people would never be willing to get that uncomfortable to achieve their dreams. That’s why most people never achieve them.

Often the Universe forces you to be the hero of your own life. You lose your job, you get cancer, your spouse cheats. You know . . . the typical disasters that make you sit up and take notice . . . and finally agree that your life needs to change and it is you that must change it.

Everything I offer is designed to help you along your spiritual journey, your personal quest for the Magnificence of self:

  • Meditation keeps you sane, balanced, and able to hear the still small voice of Divine wisdom,
  • Dowsing helps you fine tune your intuition and send a neon sign to the Universe saying you want answers and Divine assistance,
  • Private Long Distance Energy Sessions help to clear out the energies you have not been successful at clearing and to activate and “turn on” the various codes lying latent within you,
  • Dancing Dolphin Energy Healing Products and Healing Technologies lift you up significantly in vibration and offer every possible type of support you could need anywhere along your way – from something to just help you calm down to things that act like dynamite clearing out and releasing you from the past,
  • The various books offer insights and wisdom to help you understand more about yourself, the spiritual journey, how life really works, and the quest you are on,
  • The new workshop series will offer an opportunity for you to learn the best ways to work with the Dancing Dolphin products and the techniques for yourself or with clients and groups. If you have a center or a group and would like to host a workshop, please let me know: takara@magnificentu.com.

Much love to you Dear One. What you make of your life is up to you. I send you blessings and Light for a prosperous, healthy, and magnificent new life.

  1. Very well written Takara – a gift with words! You’ve mentioned so many important points, but the 2 that really stand out for me are: Feeding your mind new information, and anything less than full potential is just not O.K. I believe we need to embrace these fully to be able to move forward in our journey. Also, as long as we are self aware and act, we’ll be able to recognize our own journey successfully. Have an amazing 2013.

     

  2. Hi Gary:

    Thanks for stopping by. I agree with you. Those are definitely very important points.

    Sending you blessings for a fabulous 2013,
    Takara

  3. What a fantastic post! The good news was when you said: “The only thing you have to change is the one thing that you truly can . . . and that is you!”

     

  4. Hi Susan: I spend most of my time helping people with that piece. So often people look outside themselves, judging and condemning other people, organizations, or situations. That typically is a pointless waste of time and energy. When a person can change themselves, their whole life miraculously shifts and the outer begins to reflect the inner. Everything works much more smoothly. Fun!

     

  5. Wishing you a wonderful 2013, as well! Great post! It’s amazing what can happen when we dig deep and move out of our comfort zone. : D

     

  6. Hi Sherie: Thanks for sharing. It is fabulous what can happen outside the comfort zone. I wish it was easier for everyone to see how dramatically things can change when they learn to “trust” that the Universe has their best interest in mind.

  7. Such a beautiful article, Takara. Liked this: “The only thing you have to change is the one thing that you truly can . . . and that is you!” It sounds so simple and powerful! Thanks for sharing. Happy New Year!

     

  8. Hi: Thanks for visiting and commenting. It is extremely powerful and fairly simple. Sadly, most people are terrified of looking at the limiting beliefs, fears, judgments, and expectations that are holding them back. And even worse, most people don’t have the tools necessary to “fix” an issue even if they are willing to look at it. Thank heavens I, and many others, have developed and discovered tools that truly do help.

  9. Love starting off my year with all these motivating and inspiring posts. It really is a matter of deciding you can and then giving yourself the permission and the tools to achieve your own magnificence. Thanks, Debbie.

     

  10. Thanks for visiting Marie: Most people just need 1 other person to truly believe in their potential for them to begin believing they can achieve their dreams.

  11. Thanks for a wonderful post Takara. You brought up so many good points. I really appreciate your point that to create your best life you have to dig deep and find strength and courage to deal with whatever comes.

     

  12. Thanks for stopping by Jean. I love that quote by Einstein about the definition of insanity “Doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result.” Yet most people refuse to do something new, step out of their comfort zone, learn from someone else, or try something different. It takes a significant amount of courage. But the more you do it, the more you see the fantastic results because you did so. It helps build the trust you need to take uncomfortable actions next time. I’m pretty freakin’ courageous. I’ve walked on fire. I’ve ridden horses bareback and blindfolded. I’ve run at top speed downhill toward a cliff dropping off into the raging ocean below while blindfolded. I’ve pushed past a lot of fears. I married a foreigner. I left the comfort and security of a high paying engineer’s job to move to an island and start a non-profit for dolphins and whales.

  13. “Because the idea of being anything less than my full potential is just not O.K. with me”.

    This is an awesome statement!

     

  14. Hi and thanks for visiting. It reminds me of my favorite quote: “Life is either a daring adventure . . . or it is nothing.” ~ Helen Keller.

     

  15. Powerful article. I agree with Gary, feeding your mind new information, and anything less than full potential is just not O.K. And it is a process, this journey we travel on. Learning more day to day and implementing more. Getting it bit by bit and living the way our Creator originally intended for us to live. Thanks!

     

  16. Thanks Norma. I love the personal journey toward what I call magnificence. I also LOVE helping others as they learn to navigate theirs. Fun!

  17. Excellent article with a powerful message, our life can and will be what we choose it to be! We have all we need within, all we have to do is believe in ourselves and ACT!

     

  18. Thanks for stopping by Denny. And once we start the action it is so much easier. The act of getting started, taking that breath and daring to do whatever, seems to be the hardest part. Once you are doing the thing, you realize how easy it is and how silly it was to resist it in the first place.

     

  19. Acheiving dreams is definitely not a matter of comfort! But it is so worth it as we attain another nugget of our dream! 🙂 Step out and make it happen!

     

  20. Absolutely! Thanks for stopping by Carl.

  21. So many wonderful mentions in your post; I loved it! The part about you are the sum total of the 5 people you hang out the most was told to me in a similar way in the past by a friend of mine. She said to try not to be around negative people since that can bring you down. However, if they are people that you really do want to keep in your circle of friends or they are close family members and they are negative, then, as you pointed out too, you don’t have to replace them but find other outlets to learn and not be around that negativity so much.

     

  22. Hi Allison. Thanks for your comments. Monitoring the amount of negativity you let in is not always easy. It is definitely worth it though. Have a great day, Takara

  23. So many points that resonate in here with me, thank you. This one struck a special chord ~ “Often the Universe forces you to be the hero of your own life.” I find that to be so true. You can either take these experiences that come your way and allow them to break you or make you. For those of us who choose to be the heros, they are the most extraordinary and strengthening experiences of a lifetime. Thanks for a great article. I also will never settle for less than my full potential!

     

  24. Hi Jennifer – thanks for stopping by. Seeing the lesson or silver lining in a tough situation is a skill well worth developing. Many blessings to your continued success, Takara

  25. Wonderful article. Great things can happen when you step out of your comfort zone… so I’ve heard, LOL. It’s not something that comes easy for me! I prefer to dip a toe in, think about it and see how it goes, rather than jump right in (or out?), but I know I should really jump! I don’t know why the comfort zone is so comfortable–it’s often boring and/or unhappy.

     

  26. Debbie…thanks for the great post, we think alike! I agree that you are who you hang around and that is the first step in evaluating where you are and where you want to be.

    Happiness is a choice, because we all will get hit with uncomfortable circumstances in life…it’s what we do with them that matters!


  27. Very inspiring post here Takara! You are absolutely right about stepping out of my comfort zone to achieve my dreams and goals. “You are on a hero’s journey. Your life is your quest.” I love the way you point this out.


RunAway

Because of the nature of who I am and the business I’m in, people often tell me things about their past that they never dare share with anyone else. I’ve heard so many horror stories from clients and friends, sometimes random strangers, about the things that happened to them in their own homes, and outside the home as they were growing up and even into adulthood. Being  “staked” and gang raped, starved and locked in a closet, pimped out by parents who were part of a cult, beaten to the point of having a near death experience because they were legally dead, and on and on it goes. These are “normal” people from all walks of life and every economic level. You would never know as an onlooker that they are survivors of such madness.

Yet, on the inside, they suffer … Read more
