GRATITUDE MEDITATION FOR TRANSFORMATION

AkashicrecordconsultDid you know that true gratitude is not an attitude, but a state of consciousness?  That’s what my teachers in the Oneness Phenomenon are saying.  Gratitude for external things like a pay raise or a gift is only fleeting; You may feel grateful in that moment, or even for the entire day…but if someone triggers you or something happens that doesn’t go your way, isn’t it easy to lose that gratitude?  Doesn’t that happen all the time?

On the other hand, real gratitude that comes from deep within, and is not dependent on what is happening in our life, is a state of awareness that we want to embody.  This is the type of gratitude that transforms each of us, and this troubled world we live in.

We’re in a world of tremendous disconnection from our Source, from each other, and from the Earth.  We’re lost and we desperately need to find the way home.  The Oneness Phenomenon path is not the only way to get home, for there are many, many paths to awakening.  However, it’s one that it powerful, easy to access, and definitely transformational.  All these reasons are why I practice Deeksha, teach Deeksha initiation, wrote a book on it, and am continually learning from the teachings.

Oneness University in India, which I’ve written about extensively in my book The Oneness Blessing, has been undergoing some changes in the past year.  The famous avatars who are most known regarding the spreading of the Oneness Phenomenon, Sri Amma and Sri Bhagavan, have turned over the running of Oneness University to their son Krishna ji and his wife, Preetha ji.  Krishna ji, at age 11, was the first person who was able to transmit the energy of the Oneness Deeksha to another person, as the Phenomenon worked directly with him at a very young age. Now Krishna ji is grown and married to a wise, spiritually empowered woman, Preetha ji, and they have a child.

Preetha ji started a center called One World Academy in India some years ago.  She is known in her own right all around the world.  Her recent TEDx talk on how to end stress, unhappiness, and anxiety can be heard HERE. Now, Preetha ji and Krishna ji have merged Oneness University with One World Academy, calling it O&O Academy.  The anchor of the Oneness Phenomenon continues to be the Oneness Temple in India, for it is an incredible, metaphysical portal that sits on one of the most powerful grid lines on the planet, according to my teachers. I’ve personally experienced its transcendent energy and urge anyone who can go to India, to go there and experience it yourself. 

O&O Academy is celebrating what Sri Bhagavan named some years ago, as “Gratitude Day” on November 14.  In fact, they are recognizing a “Season of Gratitude” from Nov. 14-23.  Of course the 23rd is our Thanksgiving Day here in the States, so it perfectly fits in this time period.

Today, I’m sharing with you a beautiful meditation created by Preeth ji, which is designed to help move us into a state of true gratitude.  I challenge you to join me in practicing this short meditation daily from Nov. 14-23.  In fact, you may want to continue with it much longer – especially if you are a seeker of permanent consciousness transformation. 

True gratitude is a powerful catalyst for experiencing a love of life.  Gratitude ushers in great inner peace, a deep awareness of interconnection, and a state of Oneness consciousness. Preetha ji and Krishna ji want to start a tidal wave of gratitude all over the world!  Let’s contribute to that!

Will you be part of a global shift?  Do we not need it acutely now?  Please join me in meditating with Preethaji’s Gratitude Meditation – find this meditation HERE  on YouTube.

Please let me know how you like the meditation and its message, and if your internal state begins to change. Perhaps Thanksgiving will be more meaningful than it’s ever been this year – despite what is going on all around us in the world.  That is my hope and faith in our ability to shift the future of our beautiful planet and its abundant expressions of the One.  

 

SAVE THE DATES: Are you relationship-ready for 2018?

FreeMeditationLogoCalling all single women – I’ve got an amazing class coming up to help you shift into a new dating paradigm for 2018. The class is called “Dating, Sexuality & Empowerment”; Since being sexy is an inside job, we’ve got some powerful energy-medicine modalities to transform your dating and romantic experiences from the inside-out!

I’m collaborating in teaching this class with a talented friend of mine who is a psychotherapist and dating coach.  We are going to assist you to shake out your self-limiting dating patterns, release blocked sexual/creative energy and awaken your aura-glow with some magical processes like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and guided meditation – and much more!

There are two parts to the class, which can be attended separately or together for a double whammy:  First, there is an in-person workshop on Sunday, Nov. 12, from 1:00-3:30pm in Chicago….followed by a 4-part VIRTUAL class series, via teleconference, running on Thursday evenings, November 30 – December 21.

I’ll give you all the juicy details in a few days, so stay tuned and mark your calendars now!

Meanwhile, just a reminder that my special pricing on holistic health coaching is being offered only until November 21, when I graduate with a new certificate in Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching.  After that, the pricing will be going up.  So take advantage of a low coaching rate of only $66.67 per session (for two coaching sessions a month) when you pay in full for a six-month program to transform the way you live and eat.

I’ve noticed that some people are confused about what my holistic health coaching offers, so let me please explain: My holistic coaching offers you support, accountability, information, and my deep, intuitive skills to help you realize your goals.  Goals might be for relationships, spirituality, career, physical activity, how you eat, and anything else concerning you.  We will work together to balance the wholeness of your life!

Our focus may vary from session to session, depending on what concerns and challenges are popping up. This kind of coaching is extremely unique to each individual.  It’s not about self-discipline or denial. It’s about inspiration, natural motivation, and clarity.  The change comes gently over time, due to supportive, insightful discussion,  goal setting, and some spiritual guidance and support. As your life comes into greater balance, your goals begin to be fulfilled.  By strengthening certain aspects of your life – for instance, your social life, or your home environment, or your finances, you might naturally begin moving toward balance in other areas; for example, you work on healing a relationship and find your weight might drop, or your food cravings stop. Your digestive symptoms may improve.  These are examples of the change possible. Various problems stem from physical, mental, and spiritual causes – and we work together on all the levels.

Holistic coaching is a wonderful way to follow up your soul retrievals and Akashic/clairvoyant readings.  I work with my clients to weave together spiritual growth, human dreams and desires, and physical health.  Body, Mind, and Spirit are completely, utterly connected – each aspect powerfully impacting the other two.  Spiritual healing (particularly soul retrieval) plus holistic health coaching brings Body/Mind/Spirit into much greater unity, flow, authenticity, and vitality. Imagine feeling truly empowered:  Waking up each day with inner peace, purpose, connection, creativity, and high energy!

Despite the disasters, despite the politics, despite the uncertainty of these very challenging times – our birthright is eternal peace within, connection to a power greater than ourselves, sweet joy in the moment and intimacy with ourselves and with others.  I can support you with shamanic tools and holistic coaching to ground your life in that sweet spot, so preciously and uniquely your own.

TALKED REALITY WITH YOUR BODY LATELY?

Image: Soul of a womanMy heart has been with all those affected by the reality of these unprecedented hurricanes, flooding, and fires…and we’ve all been affected, of course. But I can only imagine the extreme challenges of living in the wake of the devastation.  To those still struggling, I hope you are experiencing the collective love and concern.

These past few weeks of massive destruction have rattled the shreds of any denial lurking in our collective awareness of the power of nature.  But as bad as its been, to those who look, the power of prayer and faith has also been affirmed. The manifestations of Mother Earth are intimately tied to the consciousness of those who inhabit the planet. With the reality of widespread disrespect and abuse of nature, there’s no mystery in our Earth Mother’s revolt.  Scientists have warned of it…as have mystics and those not blinded by financial interest, fear, and greed.  And to those anchored in faith, there is hope for this troubled planet…but only with a change in consciousness and a corrected course of action.

Likewise, the human body, when treated disrespectfully and with abuse, does also revolt. Researchers and those who have studied the ways of the body, can tell you that if you ingest sugar, unhealthy fats, chemicals, and hormone laded food, then the body is weakened and creates disease.  If you pile stress upon stress on these vulnerable nervous systems (without interventions like quality sleep, relaxation and perhaps even meditation), there will be trouble.  If you don’t mend broken relationships and frequently disregard the need for exercise, there will be consequences.  Like the fate of this planet, we are creating our destiny in each choice we make.

You are not your body. You are embodied consciousness. You’re a sacred, magnificent spirit with infinite possibilities, housed in a body created from what you eat, feel, believe, and do. The physical body beams as much light and love as the quality of its cellular infrastructure can hold.  Are you in need of an upgrade so that the vibration of your body temple moves into greater alignment with the beauty of your soul?

After years of struggling with my own personal challenges of digestion and back pain, I’ve learned the hard way that the body is always talking…but am I fully listening? Am I truly present and embodied …or am I ungrounded, in denial, and off in the la-la land of the mind?  This body talks and you better believe, I listen now. Experience can bring wisdom; This body is my beloved collaborator in the light and love I want to share while I’m alive, and I can’t do that well if I’m struggling with suffering and ill health.  How is your own relationship with the physical home of your spirit?  Many of us are very disconnected from the sources of nourishment of body, mind, and spirit.

To listen to the needs of the body is self-love in action, particularly if you are hoping to sustain a high-quality lifespan!  I personally don’t obsess about a long life, though I would be very happy to be blessed with one. What I do passionately desire is a quality of life that is vibrant, flexible, expansive, and as un-medicated as possible.  Since the future of insurance is rather uncertain and our country’s medical care system is a complex web of politics and money-laden interests, the time to take charge of our wholeness and health is right now!

Physical and emotional pain and disease is the body’s wake-up call, but how about taking a pro-active stance right now, before you’re stuck with a crisis comparable to Hurricane Irma? The physical body is the outermost manifestation of your consciousness.   Given your full attention, the body will talk to you loud and clear, telling you about its needs, wants, and emotional state.  Start  communicating seriously and get curious about what it tells you. Then make a course correction to get in balance, if necessary!

Here are 3 very important suggestions for attending to your body’s communications, while at the same time, demonstrating some powerful self-love:

  1. Sit down and close your eyes.  Turning within, do a quick inner body scan, from head to toes.  Notice areas of tightness, stress, or pain.  Using deep breathing, send some love and relaxation to the parts of your body that are unhappy.  Breathe into the discomfort. Ask your body to let go, and send it some soothing words of love. Great to do this periodically while working at a desk or gazing at your computer, phone, or television for hours!
  1. Ask yourself, “what do I already know I need to do for my body and health?”  We know how to heal ourselves!  We know we need exercise, less stress, better relationships, better eating…So start doing it!  Make a decision to take action instead of procrastinating. If you’re struggling with moving forward, get yourself a holistic health coach and healer to help you break through! (sorry, I couldn’t resist throwing some self-promotion in!)  Take this inner-knowing seriously.  Like any significant, intimate relationship, your relationship with your body requires daily attention, respect, and devotion.
  1. Feel your feelings all the way through. Feelings are the result of the body’s interaction with life.  Unfortunately, many of us run from our feelings to avoid discomfort.  Trapped feelings in the body create pain, disease, anxiety, depression, and unconsciousness.  To feel is human, but to stifle feelings is to create trouble down the road. Don’t take your feelings out on anyone else. Don’t let feelings build up within, only to leak out later as criticism, snarky digs, or outright anger.  Instead, when you have a moment, sit down and really feel your sadness, frustration, fear and anger.  Breathe into the feelings, get close to them, stay with them, and you’ll see that the feelings dissipate and release. Then your spirit is returned to inner peace and joy.

I’m wishing for you a high-quality life of alignment of body and spirit!  If you haven’t scheduled a FREE HOLISTIC HEALTH CONSULTATION with me yet to discuss your concerns and goals, the door is still open!  Contact paula@fromtheheartcenter.com or 773-791-8425.

For you fellow Chicagoans, please consider attending the upcoming, Sept. 19th Oneness Circle for a course correction and soulful, uplifting reconnection with the Sacred Self… Be revitalized, enraptured, and inspired to be your best on all levels!

Want Self-love and A Free Gift?

IMG_2516It’s been far too long since I wrote here, and I regret that fact. Summer’s almost gone! But I haven’t forgotten about you! It’s just that, in addition to my regular shamanic healing and  reading offerings, I’ve been extra busy studying for a certificate in integrative nutrition health coaching. Like many of us, any personal challenges this year are playing out amidst a backdrop of governmental, national, nature, and global violence crisis which seem relentlessly emotionally triggering, and downright hard to digest.  At times, it’s brought some people (including me!) to the brink of despair and coping ability. Our first chakra safety issues have been rocked to the core. We’ve needed to dig deep into our resources for faith, hope, connection, safety, beauty, and love.

Since last November, when I began this fantastic, year-long training program in Integrative Nutrition, I’ve needed lots of focus, not only on my studies, but on scrutinizing just about every area of my life.  The content of what I’m learning is all about the primary things that nourish us…and food is actually secondary nourishment. The fundamental things that most nourish us include relationships, physical activity, spirituality, and career.

When that primary sphere of nourishment is out of balance and lacking, the body’s physical health is challenged. How can you digest well when the stress of living seems so high? How can your body perform optimally when it’s not wholly nourished?  As a coach, my job is to support growth on all levels — and balance, inner peace, and fulfillment in all these lifestyle areas, including nutrition.

It doesn’t matter where you start to re-nourish in this paradigm, for all roads lead to healing of body, mind, and spirit…and that is the crux of holistic healing.  My own path has had a major focus on spirituality, but my Divine has led me to double-down with a  laser-focus on issues of the body  – because without the body, there is no vehicle for spiritual growth.  In these times when life seems so out of control, having dominion over what is actually most fundamental to our earthly existence (our body), is absolutely crucial!  Our precious body, which gives physical life to our eternal spirit, is under our loving dominion. Are you loving with your body? With responsibility for this body, there is choice.  And it is in our lifestyle choices that we truly honor our authentic, sacred self.

Since young adulthood, I’ve personally struggled with persistent, mysterious digestive issues and food sensitivities. In the past, western medicine hasn’t had good answers for what has troubled me. The study of nutrition and physical health, however, has been an evolving science. Now, many new findings are coming to light, particularly in the arena of digestion and nutrition.  I’m having amazing success with some of my own health difficulties, and I’m eager to share my experience, strength, and hope with you!

Even with the highest spiritual consciousness, optimum health is challenged immensely by many external factors:  the changing environment,  the stressful overload of information today, the unavailability of healthy, unprocessed food, a surplus of additives, toxins, random viruses, and, to a small degree, our genetics.  We’re up against a lot of challenges, but knowledge is power.  What we don’t know, or choose not to deal with, will surely affect the quality and quantity of our lifespan. For me, the quality of a life is the most crucial part of all.  I want to live as healthy, pain-free, and non-medicated a life as possible…how about you?

Given all these external factors, what a “pre-loaded” work of art these beautiful bodies of ours are!  In these times, perhaps more than ever, our bodies and lifestyles require radical self-care and consciousness to thrive.  This takes courage, education, perseverance, and, I truly believe, lots of accountability and emotional support.  To change diet and lifestyle in transformational ways that yield lasting results, is no small feat. It requires a change in consciousness and a powerful commitment to persevere.

As a consciousness warrior, I’ve been working for many years in the trenches with Spirit on behalf of the collective good, and I hope to go out that way when this lifetime ends – always a warrior. As you know, these are extraordinarily challenging times, these awakening times, and it takes guts to be alive now.  The dark energies within and without are not going down without resistance to all the fantastic Light.  It is becoming more and more apparent that we need greater physical health, too, to hold this precious, higher vibration of awakening.  We need optimum nutrition, sleep, and exercise for this new, empowered wiring of our nervous systems and organs.

So, expect to hear a lot more about my new endeavors in the weeks to come. In the meantime, I’d like to offer you a gift to celebrate what I’m calling my new “You Have Guts” holistic health coaching program:

A PRAYER FOR DATING & EARTH DAY

GardenThere’s one prayer that I have highly recommended for years, and used in service of creating my own life’s work, but in one certain area of my life, I haven’t employed it. I’ve been afraid to truly let go enough to pray in this particular arena, in this particular way. That arena is romance, and my fear is that if I truly surrender, I won’t get what I want.  It’s not my preference to be single, and I’ve tried persistently to change the situation as best I can.  As I see it now, even though I’ve prayed for manifestation of a partner in the many various ways that I’ve been taught to pray, it hasn’t worked for a reason. I’ve probably tried to solve the problem from the level of mind that it was created by. As Einstein has pointed out, this just doesn’t work.  In my heart, I know there’s one way of prayer that I haven’t been ready to do.

I’ve certainly had my share of extremely significant and precious relationships; each one lasted until they were finished. Not a unique story for many of us. Yet, I found myself, recently, throwing my hands up in the air, and sighing the proverbial, “I give up”. I was at a new level of despair, frustration and, ultimately, surrender – exactly what was needed, evidently, for my Divine to deliver a big, wake-up message.

Spirit’s breakthrough message came to me via a couple of coffee dates that ironically validated the extraordinary power of intention to manifest what we think we want. But what we manifest may not always be what we really need. The dates left me dazzled by Spirit’s notorious sense of humor, and I eventually saw a big flaw in the prayer technique I’ve been using in my search for a significant other.

For example, I’ve wanted to meet a potential loved one who adores animals just as much as I do. Recently, I was requesting of my Divine that this ideal person have a dog or two, since my landlord doesn’t permit dogs. (I’d imagined enjoying them vicariously, so to speak). I’ve been longing to have a significant relationship with some pets! Sure enough, I met someone with two dogs….and six cats too, bless her heart. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to remind Spirit that I have a low-level cat allergy. My own two beloved cats (now deceased) were fairly manageable for my allergy – but six cats would send me over the edge into asthma.

Dating wake-up call #2: Because I have a few food sensitivities, I can be a bit of a challenge (in some people’s eyes) to dine with. But I am so “over” having to justify certain food avoidances to people. So I’ve been asking my Divine for someone who understands and respects healthy, mindful eating. Who did I attract, you’re wondering? I called in a date with a woman with massive food allergies, (which I have deep, deep compassion for), but her severe allergies include both cats and dogs. Darn, I had forgotten to tell Spirit that my ideal partner, though loving dogs, would not be allergic to them, even allergic to non-allergenic dogs!

Trying to stay on top of all my particular specifications and expectations is exhausting. I can’t think of every single angle, polish my prayers, visualize, and expect my Divine not to have a great laugh at my expense! Here is the big “a-ha” that came a few weeks ago: I’ve got this particular idea of who I think will make me happy, and what I think will make me happy… and I’m expecting Spirit to be like a corporate head hunter who will fill the slot with exactly what I believe I want.

It’s like I have a job opening, and I want my Divine to fill it pronto with someone who has all the right qualifications. Like it’s all about me and my wants … What’s wrong with this picture?

What I see is that I have it all backwards. I need to dwell on what I have to offer, not what I want to get. I suspect things would work much better if I follow my own prayer advice and truly surrender. It’s the “truly” that is really hard.

The prayer goes something like this, and you can direct it to whatever Higher Power is sacred to you personally: “Use me. You know my desires, passions, skills and talents, dear Spirit…Let me please be a channel of your love. In service, Spirit, let me be joyful. Let me add to the world’s good. How, and with whom this might manifest is up to you, dear Spirit, so I let go of the reigns and trust in your wisdom and guidance.”

How this will show up in my dating life, remains to be seen. I’ll keep you posted! I do know that Spirit holds a vision for me, and everyone else, which is truly good and life-supportive. It’s a much higher perspective than my own.

And how does this prayer relate to Earth Day? With eyes wide open in an increasingly transparent world, we all are seeing the masses of politicians and world leaders who, in their humanity, have been severely limited by the consciousness they hold. The world’s a mess due to consciousness that has been conditioned by centuries of fear. The structures that we have taken for granted are crumbling in the wake of rising global awareness and dissension. Ugliness and cruelty also abound rampantly, seemingly hopelessly mired and motivated in fear.

We watch now as our beautiful Earth is being destroyed by this pressure cooker called life in 2017, co-created by all of us. Humans have used, manipulated, and transgressed the natural world to serve our own needs. We have forced our will. All the years of mindless taking from Earth is destroying her. Many of us have seen these times coming for years, but have been unable to influence the consciousness of “those” in control of how money is spent to create this lifestyle we share on Earth. We watch in horror. Some of us march with anger or hope.

As in the state of surrender needed for dating help, perhaps you might join me in humbly praying to Spirit today for help for the world. My Divine has me  writing blog posts, contacting politicians, protesting, setting an example, going back to school to become an integrative nutrition coach, and of course recycling. I am doing these things, but want to do so much more. I want to experience more than give glaring looks at littered sidewalks, shake my head at unhealthy fast food joints, and walk past grocery stores filled with packaged, processed, sugar-laden saboteurs, waiting to destroy someone’s health and happiness. I want to educate, wake-up others, and transform this life-denigrating mess we’ve created.

I hereby pray, and please join me if you feel so moved, to declare: I humbly offer my love, talents, skills, and passion to make this existence better for my own life, the life of our beautiful Earth, all her wondrous creatures, and the generations to come who might never know a glorious late April day like this one (at the rate we’re going), with flowers and trees a’blooming, water coming from faucets, air that is still fairly breathable, and, thank you Spirit, organically, humanely raised food options in the store … because organic farmers get it. Immense thanks to all those who get the value of life, of all things natural, of love, peace, and beauty… and are living in their truth and not in fear.

What is your prayer today? Can you let go and trust Spirit to use your talents, passion, and actions to give to the world what it needs for transformation? If you feel frustrated, confused, fearful, or blocked, please consider taking a step toward faith and action. I urge you to strengthen your bond with the personal Divine of your heart, whatever that looks like for you – so that you can be led to serve, to give, to be a sharer of Light who transforms this chaos and destruction going on now.

If you are feeling that you can’t really “turn it over” to a Divine that you don’t trust, have I got a recommendation for you! There will be another big Oneness event happening on July 1 and 2, in Chicagoland and other parts of the country. It will be a rare chance to strengthen your bond with your personal Divine by leaps and bounds. It will help you connect, expand, brighten your Light, listen within, take action, and create change with your very own awakening consciousness. The event is called The Phenomenon and the Gift. The teachings are live-streamed from Oneness University in India with highly enlightened teachers. Please check out the Chicago event HERE.

If you want to see other locations in the country and world for this incredibly powerful event, look HERE

For the Chicago event, the deadline for the early registration discount is April 30, so don’t delay. There are even payment plans options available for this event!

Wishing you all a day of awe and gratitude for the Earth… and the courage to trust, to let go, and also to take action where you are Divinely guided.

 

New Medicine Wheel Shamanic Journey -Telephonic Class

journeycircleandmeditation5-week Shamanic Telephonic Course – Exploring the Sacred Blessings of the Medicine Wheel; Wednesdays, March 22-April 19, 2017.

The term “Medicine Wheel” was used by certain indigenous tribes to honor and experience sacred rituals connected to states of consciousness, Spirit Guides, and cycles of life of an individual and community. This 5-week series will focus on the sacred “medicine” of life and consciousness, as honored by the shamanic Medicine Wheel. We will connect with our Spiritual Guides to receive guidance and healing for the gifts of each direction on the Medicine Wheel. We’ll use indigenous teachings I learned from one of my wonderful teachers, Michael Drake – a wise and talented teacher of Cherokee descent, who also studied in the Mongolian Shamanic tradition. Michael Drake is author of numerous books and many recordings. See his website: http://shamanicdrumming.com/

In addition to shamanic journeying, an ancient form of meditation offering direct connection to Spirit, each class also includes meditation with drumming patterns of each of the 7 Directions on the Medicine Wheel, as well as drumming patterns to clear energy and call in beneficial energy, as taught by Michael Drake. You’ll work with your personal Spiritual Guide for direct and personal guidance and healing in each class. Personal empowerment is catalyzed and magnified by journeying and processing together as a group! Remember, the external world reflects your internal state. The collective external world is reflecting a struggle with the process of awakening now…What a great time for each of us to clear, empower, and expand our consciousness, not just for our own happiness and destiny, but for the enlightenment of the global collective! As is said, “Be the change you want to see!”

Topics explored and experienced shamanically over the 5 consecutive weeks:

Week 1: Connection with your Spiritual Guides in the shamanic journey; Calling in the Directions, Energy Clearing: and the Shamanic “geography” of consciousness (2 hour class)

Week 2: Medicine of the East: Illumination, new beginnings & Joy (90-minute class)

Week 3: Medicine of the South: Trust, Humor, Witnessing (90-minute class)

Week 4: Medicine of the West: Introspection, Unconditional Love & Prosperity (90-minute class)

Week 5: Medicine of the North: Wisdom, Liberation & Prayer, Healing and Gratitude (2 hour class)

Class size is limited to 5 participants, in order to create a safe, sacred space for sharing and group connection. Each class will be conducted via conference call. If you need to miss a class, a recording will be made available.

Cost of the 5-week series is: $156. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. Optional, but not necessary, is to have a drum or shaker of some kind for the class. If you want to make an inexpensive shaker, you can fill a plastic Easter egg with rice or corn and tape it closed. It makes a great rattle!

THE SERIES Meets Wednesdays, March 22 – April 19, 2017, FROM 7:30-9:30 PM CENTRAL TIME FOR THE FIRST AND LAST CLASSES, AND 7:30-9PM CENTRAL TIME FOR THE THREE MIDDLE CLASSES. Payment is due in full prior to the first class. Credit card payment is accepted.

Oneness Awakening Course, Feb. 11 & 12, at Infinity Foundation, Highland Park, IL.

The Oneness Awakening Course is filled with meditation, chanting, energy clearing, and deep processes to heal many challenges in your life.  It also initiates you to give the Oneness Deeksha to others, as well as to yourself. The blessing of this energy transmission is beyond words…to be able to shift someone’s spirit in under a minute – to relieve their suffering – is an immense gift to give.  Each Deeksha we give to others, is given to us as well, raising the energy field of the collective to a higher vibration. For current hands-on Deeksha Givers who want to repeat the course, please contact me for special information. To read more about the Oneness Awakening Course and to register, click here.

Many of you, like me, have volunteered on a soul level to be part of the global awakening of the heart. Just living on this planet now, with eyes wide open, is a raw and challenging experience. Thank you for all that you are doing and being. I urge you to be fiercely in favor of the awakening of consciousness. I urge you to live it, to walk your talk and use every tool you can to heal your own relationships and trauma.  The world needs us all to awaken to even greater levels of consciousness.

Most importantly, I urge you to live from the inside out: to make your heart your home base, to live your inner Essence and inner truth, and take action whenever and wherever you are spiritually guided.   As one of my favorite poets, Rumi, wrote, “Don’t go back to sleep!”

Love and Blessings,

Paula

 

New video about Oneness Awakening Course

photodune-6777212-paradigm-shift--xsCan you feel the shift we’re in? It’s dazzling at times and may also feel terrifying, depressing, or chaotic…and maybe all at the same time!

How to be? What to do? How to connect and anchor in these shifting times? If these questions are on your mind, please consider attending the upcoming Oneness Awakening Course at Infinity Foundation on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 11 and 12 in Highland Park, IL (a suburb of Chicago). Out of town? Fly, drive, bus, or train it in – it will be a powerful boost of energy, insight, and growth for your awakening journey.  You’ll have the opportunity to go very deep in connecting with whatever is sacred to you (whether you call it Spirit, the Universe, Source, God, etc) – which is what makes it possible to hear clear guidance and manifest your heart’s desires. The course includes experiential, healing processes to break through areas of blockage in all relationships, as well as in financial, health, and career challenges. Plus, you will be initiated to give the very powerful energy transmission that is sweeping the globe – the Oneness Deeksha (also known as the Oneness Blessing).  Deeksha is known to quickly catalyze a lifting of vibration, an expansion of consciousness, an opening of the heart, an increase in self-awareness, and a quieting of the chattering mind.  You’ll be able to give Deeksha to yourself, loved ones. children, pets, and everyone your life touches! It can be given hands-on or by intention – you don’t need to be physically present with anyone to give it.

My co-facilitator of the course, Savita Laura Jachim, and I were interviewed on the Inner Quest Cable television show this week about Oneness, Awakening, and the Oneness Awakening Course.  Savita demonstrates how Deeksha is given in this video. You can watch the taped interview here

Once a week, for 4 weeks, we’ll gather together via conference call to work with a personal shamanic Spiritual Guide to catalyze the joy, excitement, energy, creativity, and inspiration of your soul.

Bring only what you can carry

Beautiful dove in a blue sky symbol of faithHello beautiful ones and very lovely and sacred holidays to all! Whatever you are celebrating at this special time of year, I wish for you, and for all of us, the lightness of inner peace. When each of us, no matter what our circumstances, find our way back to the Center Within, there will be the peace on earth that our hearts long to manifest.

I needn’t remind you of what a challenging year it’s been. Many of us are feeling it in our bones, muscles, and organs. Some major illusions have been ripped away, perhaps leaving us confused or frightened. For many, the concept of “safety” has altered dramatically. Many feel restless, anxious, angry, and perhaps very eager to heed the call to action clanging in our hearts. We may not know with clarity what we are being called to do – but we are on alert that change is happening now and full of potential opportunity. As the mystical poet Rumi wrote: “You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep!”

What do you want? If you aren’t asleep, you may be truly understanding how poignantly fleeting this particular physical lifetime is. But where to go and how to go, day-by-day, with this understanding? Here are some suggestions/reminders of what to bring into the brand new year:

  1. Bring your intention to keep going within! Find the inner freedom of peace within every day. You need to make the Center Within your home base. All good flows from there!  Establishing a daily meditation or self-reflection time is important. Take your relationships there for inner council. Take your work in the world there for advice and blessings. Take your health problems there for healing. Listen within, then act externally as directed.
  2. Ask your Higher Self (or whatever you consider a higher Source) to show you both your shortcomings and your talents. Ask for the humility to see yourself with clarity. Edge up close to the darker places where you could have done better or given more. Just see this stuff. See it with non-judgement and open curiosity, as if you were looking at a painting; for you are a work of art, and a work of art in progress.
  3. Accept these dis-owned parts of yourself with compassion; for compassion is the gift of acceptance. Open your heart to these misguided, fearful, imperfectly perfect parts of yourself. See if you can muster some radical self-acceptance. As you open your heart to yourself, grace comes in the form of forgiveness. With self-forgiveness comes the ability to start anew, each and every day – to let go of the past and release your inner burdens of guilt, shame, and self-rejection! With forgiveness comes new energy, new choices, and the lightness of inner peace.
  4. Love, love, love this beautiful and horrifying world that’s evolved from the collective unconsciousness. Accept all the people in your life who, if they could have done better, would have done better…for given the unconsciousness and programing that we’ve all inherited, we go through life in various stages of being asleep. Accepting people’s limitations does not mean approval of them. It just means that you aren’t resisting the idea or the fact of them. They exist. What you do with your acceptance is your choice. Acceptance is freedom!
  5. Know that you aren’t alone. There is a Higher Power for good working within each of us and in the world. There are invisible forces of Light urging us all to grow and evolve. The Light shines through other people, in the natural world, in literature, art, music, all forms of creativity and science … Seek the Light to renew your spirit.
  6. Be the consciousness you want to see in the world. Baby step by baby step, make daily decisions to push beyond your fear, self-sabotage, and the inability to give yourself over to love and growth and peace. Be a warrior for living life fully and courageously in the face of heartbreak, violence, and death.
  7. Be grateful. Fill your consciousness with gratitude rather than negativity. Seek the higher perspective always. Keep your eye on the good and let that steer your flight. Affirm the good daily. Let the vibration of goodness lift your spirits, for the energy of gratitude does that. Sometimes we need some help feeling gratitude – reach out for help when you need it. Others can help lift your energy and spirit. We need each other for that!

So fly high, little dove. As you are making plans or resolutions for the new year, please know that I am here to help in whatever way I can. If you are interested in becoming a Oneness Deeksha Giver and/or going deeper- and higher – in clearing and manifesting the life you want, considering taking the weekend Oneness Awakening Course that my colleague Savita Jachim and I are teaching at Infinity Foundation in the Chicago area on Feb. 11 and 12. You can check out a short video we made about the course and register here:  This course offers CEU’s for therapists, by the way.

Love to all and wishes for an amazing and truly empowering 2017!
