Namaste Beautiful Beings,
I hope this email finds you well and riding the waves of this collective evolution with as much grace and ease as possible. It seems that we are being called in each moment to continue to open to a deeper level of trust, of truth and of centre. We can no longer trust in what seemed so certain, instead we are being called to awaken to a far bigger experience, all while not bypassing the emotions that are triggered and rising at these times.
As I have been tuning into my own path and purpose I keep getting the message to be the container that grounds the light. I am reminded that my biggest “job” right now is staying connected to true presence and practice, and focusing my awareness on what is birthing, instead of becoming mired in the darkness of old shadows and old fears that are falling away. It is easier said than done sometimes.
Be-ing The Light
There are so many things happening and going on in this collective evolution, things are moving at such an accelerated rate, even as they feel sticky and repressed. Huge movements, affecting us all from the roots of our beings to the peaks of our energy field, on each and every level that you can imagine. So much sense of wanting to have some control, and yet if there is one thing is certain, change is what is happening.
To be honest it’s hard. Some days I wake up with the feeling that I can’t do this anymore, I don’t want to do this anymore, and yet there is no choice I AM doing this. We all are. It is what is happening. Each day seems to offer an opportunity to dive deep into the shadows of some sort of triggered trauma, whether it be personal, ancestral, karmic, or collective. Our nervous systems are awake and sensitive, both in relation to the expansion that is happening and also to the foundations that are continuing to crumble. Nourishment, nature and self care are vital right now as we ground in the changes that are happening.
So what can we do? How do we open to the higher awareness of these times? How can we make a difference?
For the next few moments let us try to shift our mindset around what is happening. Try to imagine it from the space of soul awareness- it is a magical time of tremendous growth. Everything is accelerated, and while it doesn’t feel comfortable, it is necessary for us to evolve and move through these changes. We are being forced to face our biggest fears as the foundations of our roots, our communities and our lives are being shaken. This is very painful on the 3d level, and yet on a higher level it is freeing up and transforming our entire blueprint, we are in a major earthquake of transition.
What if this was all meant to be?
What if there were no mistakes in this great rebalancing? What if there was nothing to fix, nothing to change?
What if this time was an invitation for you to open into the highest path of your calling, not in what you do, but in who you are?
Now is the time to own your magic. It is time to take off your costume. What we thought was safe and stable wasn’t, so instead of continuing to morph into the idea of what you “should be”, perhaps now is the time to be what you are. In all your glorious truth. It is time for us to let go of everything and anything that is holding back our expression of our true selves.
As human’s we have a tendency to always think that there is a better time for us to begin to do what we are here to do, maybe it will be when we are less stressed, or when we have more free time.
Well we are being forced to step out of the safety zone. The time is now, it’s always now. As soon as we step into any limitations of the mind, putting off our true power until a later date, we are just stepping away from ourselves, falling into the false safety of a “comfortable” life. Well that veil has lifted, at least for most of us, so do we hang on to what is already gone? Or do we embrace the changes riding the waves to their destination?
I invite you to be with these questions
- Are you walking the path in tune with your heart’s calling?
- Are you listening to your soul or your mind?
- Are you able to let go of what you thought you were- to step into who you are here to be?
What would you do differently if you could believe fully that yesterday is the past, and tomorrow is a dream yet birthed, a dream you can help create?
Know that the seeds of the unfolding collective creation are in the this moment. Every breath is an opportunity, to begin, to awaken, to trust, and to believe. Things are moving fast for a reason, we are opening and awakening, even as things fall down around us. I invite you to Jump into the flow of your spirit, to move with the universe, to let go of the control, and to try to enjoy the ride, even the bumpy moments.
I know it’s hard, I know it’s scary, I know it’s so much for our nervous systems to deal with. I understand. I am in it too. Know that you aren’t alone and that more than ever right now is the time to dream the impossible dream and to open into the resonance of your heart and of your being.
We are it. We are the change. We are the birthing of the new world and the new earth.
One of the ways we can support the nervous system and ground into a deeper experience of being is in eating nourishing foods. As we head into the late fall season- preparing comforting and soothing foods bring us back into a space of balance and also a deeper connection with our bodies. While overall we want to eat warm and nourishing foods, I love to make chutney’s also- they add a little spice to our meals, stimulating our digestive fire and bringing a bright punch of flavour. I made this chutney yesterday with homemade dosa’s, and it was delicious!
- 1 cup grated coconut
- 2 Tbs Fresh ginger grated/minced
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 jalapeno or “warm” pepper
- 1 tsp brown mustard seeds
- ¼ tsp asofetida
- 4-5 curry leaves
- ½ Tbs Ghee or Sunflower Oil
- ¾- 1.5 cups water
- Combine coconut, ginger, salt and “Warm” pepper in a blender, Add water as needed until it’s creamy and smooth. This amount of water depends on the coconut you use.
- Heat oil in a small pan on a low heat.. Add mustard seeds and wait for them to start to pop. Add the 4-5 curry leaves and stir for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from heat adding the asofetida in.
- Stir the tempering into the coconut chutney and enjoy.
Upcoming Course- Nourish
A 4 Week Journey Of Deeply Rooted Rest and Replenishment
I was really drawn to share a course that would both support and settle our nervous systems, while at the same time offering us a space of community to connect into and share. Drawing from Ayurveda, Qi Gong, Somatic Body Wisdom, and intuitive awareness we will both awaken into greater trust and nourishment in this 4 week collective journey. Each class will have sacred practices to bring us into body, time for inward reflection and journalling (words or art), and a guided meditation into deep rest. There will be gentle practices to weave into your week that build on each other over time to support the integration and embodiment of nourishment into your full experience of being.
This is also a beautiful opportunity to get a taste of some of what will be offered in the Soul Star Collective Come January
Classes are 4:30-6:00 PST/7:30- 9:00 EST
Monday November 15, 22, 29 and December 6
$150 USD (sliding scale is available)
Healing Light Courses
For those of you missing regular Healing Light Courses- I have finally got them online for purchase and practice on your own time.
These courses offer a powerful opportunity to awaken to your own potential to heal and to connect with your subtle energy body. In them we embrace and work with the cellular, emotional and energetic layers of our being, opening the doors to clear and potent awareness. At the same time, you will explore and experience a deepening of your intuition and expanded self.
These courses are self directed and pre-recorded. They are 6 sessions that can be done at your own pace and include an online forum to ask questions or share with others.
Soul Star Collective Launch
Stay Tuned. With the incredible changing times- I have decided to launch the Soul Star Collective in January. I will be sharing more soon with some more information and peeks into the magic that is being born there. There is no better or more important time to come together in collective community than right now, and I am so excited!
