Taking Refuge

While I don’t identify myself as a Buddhist, I resonate strongly with many of its concepts and practices. Its brilliant clarity about the fundamental practice of “taking refuge” really struck me the other evening, while present at a rare talk in Evanston, IL, by Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche. In truth, it made me realize once again that all the great spiritual paths lead us to the same one home…a place within: a refuge of safety, peace, truth, and joy. 

Rinpoche opened her talk with a reference to the grave state of the world today. It was personally daunting to hear an esteemed Tibetan Buddhist lama make reference to this global crisis occurring now. Somehow, some escapist part of me may have hoped she’d call this global catastrophe an illusion. But of course, the world is very real. Our eager little community that night, overly packed into a warm, small room, was waiting hungrily, as birdies in a nest might wait, for their mother to feed them.

The theme of Rinpoche’s talk was primarily on the significance of having compassion, and fed us, she did. She described the path, pointed us in the direction, and invited us to let our hearts crack open in compassion; for cultivating compassion is one of the greatest gifts, purpose and essential challenges of practicing Buddhism. However, in order to attain the selfless state of compassion, one must ceaselessly do much inner work. And one must take refuge within, in order to reach compassion.

As Rinpoche spoke in that beautifully anointed shrine room at Heartwood Center, filled with delicate Tibetan sacred objects, luscious flowers and elegant pictures of deities, I was moved by the simplicity of her words. She is an extraordinary, master teacher; Her deceptively matter-of-fact explanations stripped away the illusive smoke screen of the human mind. Yes, the world is real, but our minds flap and flounder in illusions. We suffer terribly because of these chattering, conflicted minds of ours, which live in the past and the future, but rarely in the present moment.

Rinpoche said that a key to finding peace within is to see things as they truly are, and to see each other in our sameness. Seeing the sameness is essential to experiencing compassion. Sadly, we humans get stuck so often in seeing differences. Humans struggle with fear of what is different, but also fear of what is like us – what mirrors the sameness in us that we so desperately want to reject.

We’re plagued with many conflicting emotions that tear us apart. We are a hot mess of reactivity, judgement, and self-involvement, or as Rinpoche said, “self-cherishing.”  In trendier terms, we’re self-absorbed and narcissistic.

Self-cherishing, Rinpoche said, constricts us. It narrows our views. It strangles our creative capacity. The mind becomes rigid and linear.  Most importantly, our true identity becomes masked. But underneath all that mental infrastructure – or inner jail, as I see it – there is a sacred Mind that exists in its true nature. Rinpoche’s words are underlined in my scrawling notes: Refuge is surrender to one’s true nature, to the Self (capital S), to who we truly are. For it is in our true Self, that we achieve compassion and peace.

Do you know who you truly are? You’re not your job or career. You’re not your role as a mother, father, sister, brother, niece, or aunt. You’re not your body. You’re not your troubled, reactive, fearful mind either.

When you uncover the true Self, what you experience is joy and peace. Despite what is going on around you. Despite the desperate state of human affairs. Within each of us, there is a place of refuge in the true Self. It’s a place of safety, freedom, creativity, and infinite connection to what is uniquely sacred to each of us. Take refuge, people. As we each find our true Self within, we will become a mighty force of good in the world. We can make that inner journey – it’s not as far as you think.

You may need a little help. Many of us are available to help. You might want to find your community – we find Self when in sacred community too. There is a way, but it’s an inside job, so do the inner work. Find your refuge for the sake of all. We need your compassion. We need your innate joy. We need to see the Light in your eyes, and to feel alive, safe, seen. When you take refuge, you bless us all. Look underneath all those thoughts. Look outside of time. It’s there, as close as your breath. Take refuge in your true Self.

Third Tuesday Oneness Deeksha Circle

Come to our beautiful Chicago location at Moving Life Studio, 5115 N. Ravenswood Ave., 2nd Floor, Chicago (east side of Ravenswood tracks).   We meet for meditation and the Oneness Deeksha, from 7:30-9pm, on the Third Tuesday of each month!  The upcoming circle is on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, from 7:30-9:00pm.

Feel the support of community as we raise our vibration and ground ourselves in the powerful, healing vibration of the heart!  All are welcome, no experience necessary.

You’ll be guided to experience different meditations, and then you will receive an energy transmission known as Deeksha (also called Oneness Blessing), which supports a shift in the functioning of the brain, as seen in long-time meditators. The fight-or-flight area of the brain is subdued, and the frontal lobe (the area of unity and peace) is activated.  Experience how profoundly clear you feel when that constant inner chatter quiets. peace and joy emerge, and the heart begins to flower. Our true nature is bliss, and Deeksha supports a return to our authentic nature.

No charge  – love donations gratefully accepted.

Intimacy Starts Within

 

“He who knows others is wise; he who knows himself is enlightened.”
― Lao Tzu

Texting, tweeting, emails, sound bites; we now live in a world in which communication has been reduced to short, quasi-efficient snippets.  Perhaps the use of these things began as a way to stay better connected, but as we all know, that type of connection is very shallow.  It’s good for the basics of getting a communication task done, like announcing that you’re running late.  It’s not good for communicating anything that approaches intimacy.  Our ability to truly connect with each other is slipping away…

Deep Interpersonal communication is becoming a lost art, and, in my opinion, we need to urgently look at the source of that situation –for it is having dire effects on our culture; Our culture does not value or teach authenticity and, thus, people are losing their humanity. It seems to be getting harder and harder to see empathy and compassion in politics and government policies.  We see rampant, senseless crime instead.  We see inhumane treatment of animals, people, and the earth. In fact, we are being systematically programmed to be inauthentic and in denial of our deep disconnection.  We worry about our appearance, our money, our acquisitions, but not our hearts.

My fear is that the daily practice of communing within — with yourself and with whatever is sacred to you (like God, Spirit, the Higher Self) — will disappear like the dinosaurs. Meditation is a beautiful practice of self-intimacy, as is shamanic journeying (a form of meditation).  But one complaint I hear over and over is, “I don’t have time to meditate.”  This indicates that meditation is not valued or prioritized.  I honestly don’t know why it is so hard for us to value sitting still with ourselves.

In addition to entering into a really miraculous flow of one’s life, there are magical, mystical, subtle, and majestic terrains within, waiting to be explored and revealed when we practice daily meditation.  The nuance of subtle feeling states, the whisper of that famous “quiet voice within”, the thrill of synchronicities, ease of connections, unexpected opportunities, radical insights, extraordinary states of bliss…all this inner life is ours by birthright.  But if we don’t claim that territory, it will languish like fertile lands that go unfarmed, leaving us hungry for that which feeds the soul.  In short, we will become an automated, soul-less species.

What delivers us to soulful living, is simply to turn our gaze inward.  That requires pausing from the frenzy of life today.  It requires intention, breathing, and the spirit of an explorer – brave, open, curious, persevering in our quest to know ourselves and to be surprised in fact, by the rich abundance of the present moment.

Without connecting within, we can’t truly connect with others; we can’t share our tender vulnerability, our hungry hearts, or our loving compassion.  We can’t enjoy the comfort, adventure, and thrill of deepening relationships without intimacy.

Start a meditation practice, please, and stick with it!  Even five minutes a day, first thing in the morning, makes a difference.  Seek out what is personally sacred to you – it is a living presence within.  Connect with that – what a profound way to anchor your day and, in fact,  help humanity to step into its greatest potential!

If you need coaching or instruction in establishing a meditation or shamanic journeying practice, I can help you with that.  And if you are in the Chicago area, I’ll be leading a shamanic journey circle on Sunday, May 6, 1:30-4:30pm, in which you can connect intimately with your own spirit, in a loving ceremony of like-minded community.  For more information on that event, check it out here.

Birthday Madness & $65 off

Image: PeacockI’m going to borrow a term from the NCAA Basketball Championship:  It’s March Madness time!  I have no idea why the NCAA came up with that term, “March Madness,” but for me, it fits my current state of affairs. My birthday is coming up in several days and this year I’m turning 65 – and this momentous turning point has me hyperventilating on the brink of giddy “madness.”  How is this possible? My age implies I’m old, but I sure don’t feel that way! Plus, my dear daughter turns 30 on the same day – she was born on my birthday, which was quite a present! But how can my sweet baby be turning 30?!!!

All the platitudes about wisdom, and that time is an illusion, and the sweet compliment my hairdresser gave me yesterday (“you look about 52), God bless him, isn’t really helping me ease into my “old” age.  I know, on paper, that I “should” move into it gracefully, humbly welcoming Medicare and the senior discount at the movie theater. Actually, I am very grateful for these things! But I’ve got a few days left until the big day, and I am going to kick up my heels and go a little nuts.  I’m going to enter this new phase with all the rebelliousness I can muster.  In the words of the great poet Dylan Thomas, “Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

Thank you, Dylan Thomas! I love your words, even though the Light does not die; we may turn away from the Light, but it’s with us until it’s time to move on from Earth world.  Dylan Thomas is reminding us to truly live fully, to relish this immense thing called life and courageously take it on with great gusto and spirit!  In the time I have left here, my intention is to live with passion, great health, joy, faith, and the rebellious spirit I was born with. And so I shall…

Wanna go a little “mad” with me? In honor of my 65th birthday, I’m offering $65 off my holistic health coaching package, if you pay in full, up front, for 6 months of coaching –to lay claim to your mojo!

Think about it…What do you want for “your one precious life”? (Those powerful words are from another great poet, Mary Oliver.) Health, love, adventure, passion, purpose, contribution, sexiness, money, great love? These are the things that holistic health coaching can help you find balance with.  It’s about truly living fully –living with awareness of the eternal spirit that you are, and living with the freedom to let go of the past and embrace the present. Living fully includes taking on all the ups and downs with grace, guidance, courage, perseverance, and celebrating those delicious victories that make our spirits dance with pleasure.

A holistic health coach helps you stay on target, supports you in overcoming the slumps, illusions, and excuses. My coaching leans on the spirit of your eternal Essence, as the compass and fulcrum of your life. I help you to trust your gut, find your own unique path, and live your life to the very fullest, with health, fulfillment, and awareness.

We all have an eternal Spirit, and we all have been given a body to house it. The body is a wonder, a miracle, and a gift. If you need help balancing the gifts of this Earth-life with the mission of your Spirit, holistic coaching may be for you. I invite you to have a complimentary consultation to discuss a coaching program.  If you decide to embark on that journey between now and March 31, you will receive $65 off…and celebrate life with me!  Call me now to explore how my services might help you claim all that life offers:  773-791-8425, or paula@fromtheheartcenter.com

FROM THE INSIDE OUT

I just saw the Oscar-nominated film “Ladybird” and it brought me right back to my own teen years, and the teen years of my daughter.  What I loved about the film was that it held the frequently awkward space of intimacy, both within the self and with others, in a beautifully sacred way.  For the buried teen within us, it resurrects and celebrates that uniquely joyous, sometimes painful, hormonally chaotic and precious time of emerging individuality and loss of innocence.  It reminds us of what it feels like to play without knowing the rules; to feel your way through this huge thing that is life.

That teen in me seems to be saying hello lately, even as older age, on paper or by wrinkles, might project an image of wisdom.  I moved two weeks ago, and that particular event turned my life rather upside down. It was a happy, positive move, but it still created an upheaval and thrust me into unknown territory. I’ve felt kind of like an awkward teenager again, just like the heroine of Ladybird. Considering the past year’s political climate, the chaotic weather patterns, and the rollercoaster stock market this month, you might also find yourself feeling, as I do, just a little out of control.

When I was unpacking, I unearthed an old bumper sticker I had stashed away a while ago.  The bumper sticker says, “Let Go, Let Goddess.”  That’s been my mantra since I gratefully (and with perfect synchronicity) found it again!  Letting go and allowing a higher power (whatever that is for you) to carry you through difficult, unknown times is a lifesaver; it can return you to the thrill of living fully. It can make you feel like a teen again – alive – and experiencing your life unfolding with all the tumble of emotions that humans get to have.  As challenging as having emotions can be, I still wouldn’t trade them for numbness.

We all have within us a brilliant force of life and creativity that can’t be squashed.  Like the teen in Ladybird, it can take us into some very uncomfortable emotional places and also to the heights of bliss.  Learning to trust it and let it take the reins, in order to recreate your life, is the essence of walking a spiritual path.  As a teen, that authentic force can move mightily; but as adults, we might need to unlearn a lot of conditioning and release the resistance to change that we acquire as we age — in order to unleash that force’s life-imbuing power.

All the healing work I offer is given with the spirit of supporting you in peeling back the suffocating layers, in order to reclaim your authentic self. Over and over, the repressed divine self will call to you – in your dreams or fantasies, and in real-life opportunities. In order to return to feeling fully alive, we need to listen to that inner voice. We need to let go of the past and risk being present to the whirlwind of the here and now. We need to release the old patterns that prohibit us from taking on life as an unknown adventure, as it was in our earlier years. Finding that sacred, risk-taking hero or heroine within can be downright thrilling.

I love shamanic journeying and guided meditations because they are often a grand adventure.  Just like life, you’ll never know what you’ll find if you just let go and be present within the shamanic journey or meditation. Shamanic journeying and meditation can reveal guidance you’d never dreamed of, and insights that have been beyond your reach.

For the single women reading this, I want to draw your attention to a new virtual course (via conference call) that I’m offering called “Relationship Readiness.  As you may know, I just collaborated with Sue De Santo, Clinical Social Worker and Relationship Coach, to offer an in-person workshop in Chicago.  Now we are continuing our collaboration with this virtual, 4-part class series, so those outside of Chicago can experience it – or those in my area can take it from the comfort of their homes.  I’ll be leading two sessions that are completely shamanic journeying and guided meditation.  It has the potential to change your relationship history from the inside out – to free up that teen in you to attract the kind of relationship you’ve always wanted.  If you are interested, please read more details about it here.  And if you have to miss any of the classes, a recording will be available. Contact me for questions and registration.  Early-bird price of $219 ends on Feb. 14.

A SCHOLARSHIP OFFER TO INSPIRE ACTION

schedulingyoursessionjpgHAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!  It seems like many of us are hugely relieved that 2017 has finished – I know that I am!  It was a year of trauma and anxiety. And whether you were personally touched by hurricanes, flooding, violence, earthquakes, fires, governmental decisions, “me too”, or not, many are grappling with great amounts of stress now, because we ARE one.

Stress can inspire us to make huge transformations, if we allow it to be our teacher. Our world needs transformation like crazy. But how?  Are you asking yourself, “what can I do?”. Folks tell me they don’t know what to do, or how to begin.

The answer is always “begin with yourself”.  Start with changing what you can change in your own life.  The impact of your own life and consciousness will ripple outward and effect the welfare and consciousness of all. It really does. Start with your spirit and your body, so that body and Spirit align. It’s that alignment that allows the Higher Self to really be empowered to create change.

I have a number of amazing, beloved clients who have been working on their spiritual growth with me for many years.  At some point, it always becomes time to bring the body into the higher vibration that matches the beautiful Spirit. We are here to bring heaven to earth…to infuse the material plane with the light of consciousness. And we must do that through our physical bodies.

Our bodies are so magnificent, so built for endurance and survival, that if we honor them, our bodies can deal with the great vibrations of anxiety and stress floating around now. The body does not lie, and it speaks pretty clearly – you just have to listen. The body responds to high quality food, exercise, nutrition, connection, and sleep with amazing capacity for self-healing and empowerment.

I’d like to challenge you to make this a year of honoring your body, so you can bring it into vibration with your soul. That’s where your essential power lies.

How did the holidays and your body do?  How’s your energy level, your sleep, your mood, your stress?  How are your relationships, your work, your finances?If you’d like to make changes in your lifestyle, abundance, and spirit, I’m passionate about helping people do that. I want to strengthen your voice, your creativity, your love life, your inner peace, and your emotional and physical vitality.

Change requires action;  I think this has got to be a year of action for all of us.  I’d like to offer my support with the many energetic tools for profound spiritual change and lifestyle change that I have acquired.

For me, I am not happy unless I am contributing to change.  That’s just how I’m made. So I’m going to make you an offer that’s a win/win for both of us:

For the people who are committed to impacting the quality of their life by making wise choices, are open to support, are willing to take persistent, progressive baby steps toward achieving their goals, and sign up for a 6-month holistic health coaching program, using phone or skype, I’m going to offer a scholarship of $75 off the cost of the program, whether you pay in full upfront (with the usual $100 discount), or pay monthly. And that means if you pay upfront, you will get a total of $175 off the cost of the program! 

This special offer expires January 9, 2018, so don’t delay! Take action now! Contact me and we’ll set up a phone call to explore your options.

Here’s what a holistic health coaching client who just completed my 6-month coaching program had to say last week:

I met Paula a few years ago at a meditation circle. We would see each other here and there but I did not really know her. At one particular circle earlier this year as we were going around the circle introducing ourselves, Paula mentioned something to the effect that she was among other things a healer and a wellness coach . Something inside of me told me that I was ready for this and that Paula was the person to help me , I am so grateful and happy that I listened .
We started working together, initially on healthy eating habits and choices but also began to go into reasons why I was making these choices. The details are what they are but the path that I am currently on is a gift I could not have envisioned . 
When I started working with Paula on wellness and touching on areas of my life that were difficult to objectively assess, Paula was a safe haven, a caring person who guided me , prodded me and helped me begin to examine and address issues that were deep . 
She was able to help me see things about myself that were not easy to look at. Self-improvement is hard but when someone like Paula is there by your side gently pushing you to explore areas of your life that need work, it makes it easier to move forward. 
I spent 6 months working with Paula and we met every other week (by phone) and I SO looked forward to each session. I have made some changes in my life that were very positive and necessary, I am not finished by any means, but the tools that Paula has given me to move forward is one of the most beautiful gifts I have ever received.”
I hope you give yourself the gift of self-empowerment in 2018. Please contact me at paula@fromtheheartcenter.com or 773-791-8425, if you’d like to set up a complimentary consultation to explore your challenges and the possibilities for creating change in your life…and the world.
And one more action-oriented opportunity for women who are looking for love or in dating relationships:  Have I got a workshop for you!  I’m collaborating with Sue De Santo, a dating coach, to lead a workshop in Chicago called:  Overcoming Internal Barriers to Love, on Sunday, Feb. 4, from 2pm-4:30pm.  
This workshop is for you if you are a woman wanting to let go of the “wounding” of past relationships and feel renewed confidence. We’ll help you identify blocks, fears and stories about the past, and step fully into 2018 to truly “ignite” and attract the kind of love you want.  We’ll be using powerful quantum tools like EFT (Tapping) and Guided Meditation to catalyze change.  For more info and registration, read HERE
