Last evening the song, "Something's Coming" from the musical "West Side Story" was playing over & over again in my mind. So I asked, "okay who is
seeking my attention from Spirit"? My Mom & I watched that film over & over again, yes this is true. But it was a message for me, I knew. Now, I AM sure there is more than "just this" coming, however this morning I awoke to a message on my voicemail
from the owner of my town's small, but expanding, local health food store asking ME if I would do them the honors of being a part of their holistic health
fair this month! I had to grin a little and was like, whoa....it only took them 3 years to recognize what I "do" here. Yes indeed. Times they are a-changing. I felt "seen" on a larger energetic scale in what has always been a rather conservative place to live with a very small holistic community. And quite frankly, being "seen" by another (in this case the owner of the store) was way more cool to me than actually participating in the fair itself (although I AM leaning towards accepting the offer).
Amidst the adjustment and merging within crystalline being-ness and frequency upgrades (because no one is exempt, it's a matter of Allowing and Being willing to do the inner work), I am also detoxing the physical vessel (partly to support a couple of my clients as they cleanse too, and partly because its "that time" again to do so). So it shall be very interesting if I do take part in the holistic health fair while I am doing my very first
parasite cleanse! I am a Detoxification Specialist but this is my first parasite cleanse. I have been knowing this was needed for awhile and there's no sense putting it off, if I truly want a clean gut, blood cells, and so forth, for more Light to be held in my cellular structure.
This leads me to this statement of clarity; on truly does not need to market themselves like crazy on a huge scale, or follow another's marketing plan. I can't tell you how many people have come to me with "advice" on "how to market myself". Perhaps they really did mean well, but that was always a trigger for me, that I was somehow "less than" because I wasn't posting a "proper photo of myself" or sending endless newsletters about my specials or promotions, or offering pyramid package schemes, and so on. Now don't get me wrong, I feel it's awesome to share what you have to offer in an authentic way that flows. Its when we "push" an agenda on others that actually comes from a place of lack and imbalance. And I promise you that Just by BEING & Embodying your amazing gifts, and doing the inner release and raising UP work that's required of your Soul, Magic happens in the upper dimensional planes of thriving. You begin to attract the recognition and respect you deserve because it is coming from those who truly respect you and will do (or have been doing) their own inner work because they see that you embody the Light, Truth & Love within. I can clearly remember an EFT instructor at a healing retreat that I attended, who said,"....one day I'd just had enough. I wont allow that revolving door to keep missing me when I want to step through....".
For me, it was a big old vent last week that was a catalyst into yet another initiation for this new leveling within and UP. Once I FULLY expressed (remember, we heal/whole in layers) and claimed my Light
from a space of infinite gratitude and love, and was able to truly BE neutral and let some remaining folks and situations go, its been all NEW. (And I might add that a parasite cleanse isn't only about physical parasites *wink*. In fact, many of us have unseen entity parasites that have sucked us dry. However, they too can be removed with your permission and a little help from the Angels....)
On my radio show Monday evening, I discussed transparency. We can't hide anything, for when we attempt to do so do, we deny the authenticity of our Light. So, I will continue to share and guide from my Heart. However it's so important to understand that living within the expansive space of the Cosmic Heart, that doesn't mean that we accept energetic situations that lower our vibe. In fact, we just can not energetically afford to teeter totter anymore. It becomes so much simpler to love someone for exactly who they are and where they are In their journey. And even if they aren't on YOUR journey doesn't mean you stop loving. Yes, even Love Obama AND those Republicans for showing us that the time is now to Create great
change....a new beautiful world to live in. Be neutral and Know that they too can raise UP. Its a choice. Yes, the shift is happening indeed.
In Light, Love & Peace,
On August 25, 2013 we will experience the 2nd stargate/Merkabah portal that is in place for our DNA to take
another quantum leap of manifestation and integration. Yep, this is a rare twin Celestial Merkabah alignment of incredible potential!
(The first Star of David/Merkabah alignment occured on July 29th. The planetary significance was in the form of a T for the first event The planetary significance of the alignment today, August 25th, forms an actual Cardinal Cross. These Celestial configurations are brought to us by the Blue Star Sirius ~ which is my star family of origin. I write more about this in previous blogs.)
These formations are helping us to transcend the remaining duality of the personality (EGO) and the Soul, as they create a bridge to assist us with anchoring Heaven here on Earth, within our physical bodies.
These gateways provide monumental opportunities for humanity to move beyond fear, pain and struggle; and expand our consciousness beyond the limitations that were imposed by cultural, familial and societal belief systems. And so we have the opportunity at this time to consciously bathe every cell of our physical bodies in the light codes that are channeled by these planetary formations in order to attune our DNA into higher levels of Vibrational Resonance.
This 2nd Merkabah stargate catapults us higher than we can imagine but will soon see. All of us who have been working towards our Ascension, have been moving consciously with the first Merkabah alignment on July 29th and we have have been feeling this clearing, moving upwards, and truly co-creating our new reality!
I have personally been integrating over the last 2 weeks and it has been pushing my physical & mental body immensely ~ which confirmed how important this is. I have been through a death/rebirth, clearing/re-patterning process, anchoring higher frequencies of light and releasing even MORE density of emotions, feelings, karmic patterning and outdated contracts. (I am not joking with you whatsoever. I literally told a few trusted folks that I felt as if I was really dying. However, I can tell you that the Beauty of this death of sorts is the
RE-Birth. Once One releases the pain and struggle of Duality, ALL that is Love is the only possible solution. One’s Soul purpose is magnified and there is no turning back. One is RE-Born and can truly embrace UNITY within and with ALL who walk in the higher realms. I truly Know with ALL that I AM there is no coincidence that my Earth birthday is August 23rd, when my death/re-birth occurred. It was one of those moments in time where it just "All made perfect sense". I will say it was not comfortable or easy. It was agonizing. Yet here I AM in this Now writing to you ~ having come out the "other side".)
These celestial stargates are so potent because they hold the triangular energy of the tetrahedron, which is the basic building block of all life within sacred geometry. (See the photo above that I took on the evening of July 22nd. Note the triangular formation around the full moon!) When we put 2 Tetrahedrons together with one facing up (as above) and the other facing down (so below) ~ then you have the geometry of a star tetrahedron, also known as the Star of David or Merkabah.
This merkabah in our sky represents the Uniting of heaven and earth, bringing together and balancing out polarities (ie; yin/yang, dark/light, male/female etc). This supports us to clear even more like I mentioned of my own experience, and assists with balancing our masculine and feminine energies, shifting from our ego into our hearts, and allows us to connect with our Soul more deeply.
Our physical bodies often let us know that we are Balancing and merging with Soul. I often say, "the body never lies". And In my sessions and workshops, I talk about “lightbody symptoms” and with this 2nd merkabah stargate, our Lightbody continues to integrate. From a cellular perspective, as we anchor our lightbody, our cells are transforming into something new, they are growing a ring of light frequencies around them. The lightbody grows brighter as we anchor more and more light frequencies into our body. (This is one reason why I encourage the absorption of actual Sun Light into our energy fields and into our physical cells daily…..and why I was also guided to orchestrate a Light Invocation just for this purpose. You will notice that some people’s bodies appear glowing, more than others. If you are interested in the mp3 recording of this Light Invocation, please contact me.)
In addition to supporting our Lightbody and the activation of our Merkabah, this Stargate portal alignment on August 25th, is also about embracing Unity Consciousness, where love is expressed in its purest form, without conditions, demands or expectations.
Here are some graceful suggestions to assist with integrating these light frequencies.
1) Avoid negative thoughts, people and situations. Do not compromise your integrity. Drama loves to pull us in. It isn't a part of your new life. Be protective of your energy.
2) Take sea salt baths or sea salt showers to cleanse residual lower energies.
3) Visualize Peace on Earth and within all Souls who inhabit this planet.
4) Spend time in meditation ~ preferably outdoors whenever possible.
5) Go barefoot for a few hours! Rubber soles disconnect the earth's frequencies from our feet/sole chakra's.
6) Use a few drops of rose essential oil on the higher heart and the heart chakras. Tap gently
on the thymus point.
7) Sleep, nap, take it easy. Don't fall into the old 3D trap of "doing" so much all of the time.
8) Try consuming raw, organic fruit, or veggie juices for in between meals, or even for meals if you feel guided.
In addition, here is a suggestion of how to work with the Merkabah alignment and co-create from within the Infinite magical flow of your Divine Essence.
It’s important to have a manifesting goal in mind (it can be personal or global). Write down an affirmation
of your manifestation in the present tense. For example; “I am vibrant and healthy”, “I am financially free and prosperous in all ways”, “I am now in alignment with my Divine purpose”, "I am a portal for peace on this planet", "I consciously create peace on Earth" and etc.
1. Close your eyes take a deep breath, filling your body with bright diamond light entering your crown chakra (top of the head) and bright golden light entering your earth star chakra (6 inches beneath your feet). With each breath you take in, see your vibration rising, see density being transmuted into light, see how you are opening to receive the life force energy that is filling and expanding you. With each breath out, see yourself letting go, grounding and being open to receive.
2. When you are feeling centered, focus your breath on your heart, and visual a spiral of energy at your heart expanding further and further out; connecting you more and more deeply into the Unified field of Light Consciousness.
3. With your intent connecting with your heart, bring this further to the beating heart at the center of our Mother Earth and then further into the beating heart at the core of the Great Central Sun. Visualize a beam of bright golden light connecting all three hearts, moving this life force energy up and down all your chakras. See the 3 hearts beating as ONE.
4. Now within this connection, fill your body with love and gratitude, placing your intention into your heart. Truly feel how it is to be living your intention as reality in this moment. Utilize all of your senses in this moment to feel into this reality. Feel this as profoundly and deeply as you can. Now breathe out and send this reality into the Unified field of Light Consciousness, knowing it IS so.
5. Now say this affirmation to support your powerful manifestation:
“I open myself up to be in total alignment with the natural flow of abundance and my higher purpose. I choose to receive all forms of abundance that is in alignment with my heart and my higher purpose, and for every being’s highest
good and wholing.
I am fully prepared for the sudden movement of this manifestation with ease and grace.
I instantly and gracefully choose to clear anything within my field which doesn’t serve or match this manifestation.
I choose to fill this life with energies, emotions, experiences, and love that match this manifestation.
I allow the Divinity within to Create this or something better. And so it IS.”
8. Now visualize the merkabah alignment in our sky, embracing Earth and you, imagining your triangle of Light around you. And now see it vibrating and transforming into an energetic Merkabah (Star of David). Imagine the merging of heaven and earth right now; for yourself and all of humanity.
9. Anchor this energy fully into your heart and your Being, allowing you to open up to the vibrational awareness of UNITY Consciousness and Love.
10. When you are finished, then feel if there is any physical resistance, doubt or uncertainty that comes up in relation to your intention. If there is don’t judge it, just sit with it, be with it, acknowledge it and feel it ~ then simply transmute it with love, allowing it to go and releasing it. And from within this newly created space ~ BE open to receive!
11. As you are tuning into the Unified field of Light Consciousness, the vast field of Love that you are manifesting within, know that ALL YOU NEED to support the manifestation of your Divine purpose, is within you and already manifesting for you. Then BE open to receiving the Celestial and Divine support of this magical Universal Merkabah stargate!
WE are Co-Creating Heaven on Earth. Remember ~ WE chose to BE Here. From my Heart to Yours.
Together WE Raise UP!
With love, light & always ALOHA,
P.S. The energies of this stargate portal will continue into August 26th. So there is still "time" to tap in, spread your Light around the Earth for Peace, and Create Magic!
I know so many of you are feeling quite the shift now & wondering why you are still having to "deal" with density
of Being-ness. I mean, after all the clearing we've done, why haven't we ascended already, right? The energies being provided by the stars and cosmo's is going to bring about ALL that needs to be re-surfaced, to see if you can TRULY remain in Light in the midst of chaos. This chaos, or collective Karma, is a test of sorts to see if we Lightworkers have fully integrated and released ALL that no longer serves a purpose. I can assure you that this test is not going to let up anytime soon, so the sooner you deal with what needs to go, get into the nitty gritty so to speak, the better YOU will be able to assist others as they Awaken. There isn't one of us that isn't going through this on one level or the other. Its just a matter of where we are on our Soul's journey. There isn't one person who isn't being given this Grand Opportunity of Awakening to Raise UP.
From what I already know, combined with what I have compiled from various resources, the Lion's Gate refers to the Sun entering the sign of LEO (which is also my sun sign) , and these energies are integrated into the Earth under the energy of the Lion, the Feline Energies which are proud and "royal" (yes, just ask my kitty Muffin. He would agree)! This Star Gate is open during a period of two weeks in which a vortex opens and a wave of one of a kind Light from the Galactic Center is received on the Earth. This "wave" contains the new Light Codes for the Evolution of the Earth for the next cycle, and is known as the Planetary New Year.
The Star system of Sirius (which is my home star family and Galactic Celestial Resonance) has always worked closely with the Evolution of the Earth, assisting whenever possible. The Sirians assisted with the Ancient Egyptian civilization after the fall of Atlantis had destroyed all previous civilizations. The Egyptian civilization carried the "Star Wisdom" of the Elohim, which was transmitted to the Earth (The Sirian Emissaries of Light allow me access to these rays during light integration and energy clearing sessions. Each ray vibrates to a different frequency of vibration for raising consciousness and releasing karmic patterning).
In Ancient Egypt, the Sirians were the mediators between the Galactic Council and the people of Earth.
Each year, between July 26th & August 12th, a new wave of Galactic Light from the Central Sun would be directed towards Earth and magnified by the Sun in conjunction with the Rising of Sirius in the North. The Sirians would accept this energy into the Pyramid complex at Giza and then transmit the Codes into the Earth Grids, allowing for a peaceful transmission of the energies.
After the Giza Stargate was closed, the Earth transmissions were still mediated via Sirius, but they were not received easily by the Earth, and so the Earth's evolution was slowed for a while (which thus created the Karma game). However, in the last ten years or so, the Earth has been ascending into the Fifth Dimension and has "graduated" of sorts, and now the Lion's Gate transmissions are being received directly by the Earth and distributed via the new Crystalline Earth Grids.
This incoming Wave of Light will become integrated into Earth Consciousness. This wave of light is programmed to effectively "Recalibrate" the Earth's Frequencies for Higher Levels of Consciousness. This means, of course, that the 3D "illusion" will continue to crumble and break away. To those who still hold to the 3D Consciousness, it will seem like chaos is breaking out everywhere, on the Earth and in their own lives. So, one might feel paranoid, angry, or hopeless. For those who can maintain a Higher Consciousness, it will seem as if a new world is dawning, and in fact it IS.
I awoke today with thewords: Intensity, Forgiveness, Oneness, Flexibility & Divinity. Everything really does feel so intense to the point of being surreal. Whatever is still remaining of 3D consciousness will need to be removed and then replaced by something of a higher vibration. This can seem difficult if one still holds onto emotional attachments to old ways of Being and doing. However, if one simply releases and allows the changes, then this can be achieved with the minimum of grieving or pain. It is simply best to TRUST the PROCESS and allow whatever needs to happen to occur, so that the old can GO. It's when we hold on that we feel deeper pain, or a prolonging of numbness. This only stalls our Soul's Awakening process and more discordance will continue to occur, in order to "wake you up".
You might also feel energized, or feel a desire to change your lifestyle (with cleaner eating and increasing exercise) to bring your body to a higher frequency. You may also find difficulty in sleeping and feeling anxious. Your physical vessel might also feel such incredible expansion, whereas you feel "larger than life", more than ever before. (In fact, last night my physical body felt as large as the Universe, or at least as large as my king sized bed. It felt uncomfortable, as if I didn't belong in my own body anymore. This takes adjustment, which is why Grounding and allowing yourself to be IN your body, not out of it, is so important right now.) I will add that headaches & intense third eye pressure seems to be common, as well as waves of feeling very warm to the point of sweating, to suddenly freezing/shivering.
8:8 is when the Peak moment of the Lion's Gate/Vortex begins. This will continue through to the Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius and commence on 8/25. To allow adjustment during this portal of intense energies, light codes and upgrades, be sure to spend time in deep meditation, and ALLOW that which is surfacing to do so, for release. Say NO to anything or anyone who attempts to pull you away from the task at hand. This includes staying away from lower vibrational processed foods, sugar, stimulants (such as caffeine & alcohol) and choosing greens, organic veggies & fruits. You may also wish to take magnesium to bowel tolerance for headaches & joint aches, as well as sleeplessness. Lavender oil on the bottoms of the feet and on your pillow at night, will also help to soothe aches and headaches, as well as assist with better sleep. If you choose to have energy work done, or have a massage, please choose a practitioner who is of high vibration. Protect your energy field during this time, and remember to ground into Earth, so that you are in Balance as these upgrades of your Lightbody occur. This is it folks, I can not reiterate it enough. Our time is at hand. Raise UP in LOVE & Vibrate to the higher frequencies of Light.
With the Loving Roar of the Lion,
Greetings BELoved Souls!
I feel its important to share with you that the cosmos are providing us with a Grand Event that each & every one of us should be aware of. In meditation during the new moon, around July 14th, I was shown the Star of David and the star Sirius (my home star). I was also shown the dates of July 22nd & July 29th. I was also told that our time was at hand and those of us who had "done the work on ourselves" (ie; releasing karma, healing ancestral timelines/soul contracts and so forth) would want to be "ready" for this was the time we were waiting for. I was also shown that this would continue into August, perhaps into September even. After doing a little research (which I usually do for further clarification on messages like this), I discovered that WE are embracing the formation of the Star of David, Grand Sextile, Star Tetrahedron, Universal Sirian Merkaba & the Lion's Gate. WOW!!! Talk about amazing energies for all who are Awakening!
Just like we "prepared" ourselves for 12-12-12 & 12-21-12; this is THE time to have your intentions
on your highest visions. BE vigilant of your thoughts in the next few weeks because whatever you are still holding in your vibration will be manifested rapidly (this includes any fears you are still holding onto, so
you want to be sure to release all that is not of Love ~ anger, jealousy, blame, guilt, negative thoughts,
and so forth).
If you are like me, you might be having days where everything just flows perfectly & easily and then others where you feel anxious and "crawling out of your skin"! During this magnificent time it might seem like a double edged sword, and it is. When we integrate and then merge into our crystalline, Higher Self we need to take extra self care. If you feel fatigued ~ take a nap. If you have the "itchies" (new energies
mingling with solar flare activity), get headaches (the pituitary is expanding even more as we leave the 3D density field/matrix) , nausea (the lower chakra's are releasing lower vibrational emotions) ~ liken all of this as a wave we are navigating as we upgrade another notch in our Ascension. Myself, there are some days where I just lay in bed for however long I need, to allow my body to "catch up". (Remember crying is a beautiful release and a perfect way to cleanse your aura & dissolve karmic contracts!) Simply allow yourself to be in flow with however you are feeling, both physically & emotionally. In my own experience, usually whatever is integrating & being releasing can be cleared within a few days; whereas "before" this would be drawn out "much longer" because it was a dying off process of sorts. WE are transforming into crystalline BEings of Light, right before our own eyes. Of course, on the days where you are feeling "clear & energized" get up & create anew! On those days, I find that new ideas & visions are flooding in like a gushing river!
Spending time in the sun daily, walking in the moonlight & under the stars, laying on the ground, immersing yourself in or breathing in the ocean air (taking salt baths counts!), along with meditating will truly assist you to integrate the energies of this Galactic event. You might feel spacey and detached. That's okay too & grounding in nature will help. Remember, all that no longer serves you needs to be released. If you delay this, it will reappear again & again and become manifest one way or the other! We are ALL out of the spiritual closet now, so to speak. There's no hiding our Truth any longer. What do you want to let GO of? It is so very important to spend time with your Spirit now. You don't have to please anyone's requests except your heart's calling. Tune into the Universal Sirian Merkaba that is a gift for us all & our Mother Earth and receive the Light that is entering your body now. I am including a helpful timetable for the 29th (see below) if you wish to navigate throughout the day. From my Heart to Yours ~ Raise UP! We are Arriving!
Peace, Paige xo
For specific planetary timetables for this Star Gate Enterprise (as I am calling it!) on July 29th, please visit: http://jhaines6.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/additional-tools-for-working-with-the-star-of-david-merkaba-stargate-on-july-29-2013-from-carol-ann-ciocco/
I want to write about what I have learned in this life about the Freedom of Letting Go. Many people come to me seeking assistance with this very issue so I know how important this is. And I also know that because this was one of the biggest karmic lessons for me ~ it is also why I others choose me to assist them ~ who have similar lessons.
I was always the one to hold on. My “belief” was that they'll change, or come to see who I AM, or they might even pay attention! I would speak in circles over & over & over again and still not be heard or seen. I struggled with my self-worth. In many past lives I had been tortured or abandoned; and my cellular memory knew this. So the karmic theme was already familiar in this life; and it was brought about to be purified and released from that memory bank.
I choose to be an open book…… sharing my fears, loves, desires, passions and soul’s knowing with everyone who wants to listen or connect. I trust that we were all One and that we are all Free. I have always considered myself a free spirit. Then something happened along the way ~ I began to feel very alone. It appeared that going for what I wanted; such as moving to new locations, taking acting lessons, buying my first new car, or traveling around the world to be among others I connect with, for example ~ was considered "selfish" by others expectations. People "in my circle" became very jealous and resentful because THEY didn't have the courage to do what they desired. Or they distorted that what I was doing for my own Soul growth was about them.
So what I then did was allow myself to become very small. I shifted my vibration so that I would be accepted, even though I knew it wasn't right for me. But I was tired of feeling lonely and misunderstood. I lost the inner strength that was such a huge part of what made me who I AM. And I thought that maybe it’s easier to let someone lead & I will just follow and keep my mouth shut.....I mean, what does it matter if I am speaking and they aren't listening, as long as I am 'accepted'….and so that cycle continued for a long time. In fact, I began noticing this when I was just a young girl. My Soul spoke to me when I was in kindegarten, that is when the first experience occurred that I can remember in this life. My Soul awoke me and said, “remember….this is my lesson here now. Release the need for approval. Release the fear that I am not enough”.
And so, I always knew this was my karmic lesson and at times I would ‘conquer’ it and my Soul would shine bright! Now and again I 'succeeded' in many areas that others might only dream of! And then once again attracting others who were envious of who I was; I would allow the betrayal of Self by allowing another to teach me the same lesson again. Even though I "knew" not to look for others for my own self worth and would often hear my Soul speak to me, "Run, Paige….RUN! Everybody doesn’t have to “like” you. Remember the lesson"! In the last few years, I have met several souls who have challenged me to remember this lesson and the contract that was created. Yes, I allowed myself to be the victim of pain. I allowed myself to be abused/ tortured once again…. and I needed to allow this so I would finally release the karmic cycle. I needed to learn that letting go of who and what no longer serves me is a gift. It is a gift that creates freedom of Divine expression.
The door is now closed to that cycle. I am committed to walking my talk. If I don’t know something, I will tell you. If I can’t assist you, I will let you know. But I will not explain myself over and over anymore to anyone who is committed to not accepting their part in the contract they've created, and to their own Soul's expansion. It’s been a long road, and sometimes it doesn’t even feel like it’s been all that long at all. In fact, it feels as if it’s all just a blink of an eye as it’s all the same lesson I heard from my Soul when I was a girl.
When I was a child, someone was always jealous of me for something or other; my looks, talents, family, clothes, boyfriends, whatever. As an adult, surprisingly ~ this didn't involve old boyfriends, or childhood friends, the adult cycle involved those who I believed to be "enlightened" souls or "spiritual" teachers. This was the hardest of lessons for me because this brought up all of the stored memories I had of being abused, abandoned and tortured in the past lives. Especially those memories of having the "gift" of clairvoyance and as an energy medicinal healer, and unpopular advocate. One of my mentors encourages Truth and Discernment. Recently, I sat with this one for a long while. I was reminded that just because someone is awakening, or is psychically gifted, a healer, etc., does not mean that they are yet fully aware. This brought me back to remembering that voice I heard, my own Soul, when I was a girl. Love without attachment. I do not have to repeat the cycle of abuse or abandonment. Yes, I absolutely do have a few guides & mentors of integrity who are in their physical bodies. I also have teachers & guides in non-physical form. And I honor each one of them, as well as fully honor the connection I have with my own Soul.
Drama, denial, mind games, and all that jazz does not work. Following others in hopes they will understand you, see you, or appreciate you, doesn’t work either. Honest and open communication, even if it’s not an easy conversation, is a treasure. Trusting in the Knowing that I AM enough (as are You) and what you think of me is none of my business, is instant freedom. This is how I can BE of service to ALL. This is the ONLY way I can BE of service for ALL, is by Being ME.
And as I sat with this lesson in meditation today, my Mom lovingly came in from Spirit, driving her old orange Volvo, delivering the message, “U R FREE” (that was her license plate)....and she was singing the song from my childhood by Marlo Thomas, ‘’….You and Me are free to BE, YOU and ME”.
And so it is.
In Love, Light & Aloha,
Today marks one year since my dear friend Ray "Ragu" Ragucci went to the Spirit world. The tears started falling yesterday, everywhere I looked, I saw him. I could do nothing "productive" so I chose to lay down in my bed at 8:00pm and even stayed there most of the day today, as well. The tears flowed, my voice spoke in moans, "Raaaaaay, Raaaaaay, Raaaaaay.". When I went outside finally, to feel the warmth on my skin, a pure white feather fell gently from above and landed at my bare foot. All I could do was smile. For I knew Ray was with me on and off the few days before, gently placing white feathers at my feet, just like today. Some people think that because I am a practicing medium and psychic that I don't grieve like "regular" folk. That somehow how it's "easier" for me because I understand there is life after death and that our Spirit indeed lives on. I mean, I talk to Spirit everyday, so why isn't it easier? Well for now, I am still living in a human body with emotions, and my heart can hurt for a friend. Especially for a friend like Ray.
I met Ray three days after the terrorist attacks in New York City on September 11th. He tearfully explained to me that he was grappling with "survivor's guilt". You see, he was "spared" that dreadful day and 343 of his own, were not. Ray was a veteran firefighter with the New York City Fire Department, Engine Company 5. He switched shifts with Manny DelValle so that he could attend his daughter's first communion. Neither Manny, nor Ray, thought anything of it..... for it started out like any other day, just like most of our days do. I clearly remember feeling Ray's angst, the duality he felt of being thankful to be alive, and his grief and his guilt, over losing his brother. In the days, months and year to follow, Ray worked diligently, night and day, in the rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero. I walked the grounds with Ray on many occassions, besides "the pile" as we called it, sometimes we would walk in silence, sometimes he would share his brother's stories with me, or what the 24 hour shift had entailed that he had just finished. And I would listen to every excruciating detail he offered.....as well as feel the emotions and details, that weren't said.
In the weeks and years following 9/11, Ray attended dozens, upon dozens, upon dozens of funeral services of his fallen brothers. Every year he drove up to Boston to attend Manny's memorial services, to show his respect for Manny's family and for his fallen brother. Ray always went above and beyond for everyone. He was the first to offer a helping hand, and whenever I was grieving, or exhausted after counseling all day long, he would offer me a vegetarian meal at the firehouse (I'm telling you, those firemen can cook up a storm!). Ray would offer me a ride when I was too broke to take a taxi, or when my feet were hurting, and I couldn't walk the fifty or so blocks to where I was staying. When I drove in from Boston, he let me park my car at the firehouse (what a blessing that was, if you know anything about parking in NYC.....). When I flew in from far away he would pick me up at the airport. Ray always made me feel special. He always told me that the work I was doing to help others was most important of all. I never -- not once -- saw it that way. Ray was the amazing one. Ray was the giving one. Ray was the one who was always laughing, with a positive attitude, and offering his hand to help others.
But even in the midst of the chaos, turmoil and grief, we shared many a good time. (Yes indeed, O' Hanlon's pub across the street from the firehouse was definitely a blessing on many occassions!) Year after year, Ray would be there for me, for everyone, for all of us.....even when he finally retired after twenty years of duty. In 2009, when Ray told me he was having "blood tests", I felt right away that his condition was a result of toxicity from Ground Zero. He was later to have a bone marrow transplant. Night & day, I prayed for Ray. Each time I spoke to him, in or out of the hospital, he was full of positivity, love of life, love for his sweet family who he was so very proud of. Our prayers had been answered, Ray's sister was a match and his transplant was successful.
In June 2011 when I spoke to Ray, I knew he just did not "sound right". He told me his blood counts were off and he was admitted to the hospital again, after previously enduring many months of recovery. On July 4, 2011, exactly one week before the tenth anniversary of September 11th, I got the call from my dear friend Jeff, that Ray had crossed over. Earlier that morning, a huge white feather landed on my doorstep.....and a beautiful cardinal (fire engine red) sang to me, "I'm free, Paigeeeeeeeeey.......". I felt the moment that Ray left his body, and joined his fallen brothers who had gone before him. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of Ray, of his positive Spirit, his commitment, and undying, unconditional love for others. I keep Ray's memory alive in my heart. And today.....well...... I had a damn good cry. I miss you, Ray. My forever friend. You were ~ and always will be ~ a light in my world. You are never forgotten. Until we meet again, here's to you....Ragu.
My sincere apologies for not blogging for two months! Wow, time is flying by -- so much has happened for myself, my clients, family, friends, on our planet & our star/solar system! I have been going through quite a transformation and will be sharing this with you in the weeks ahead. Realizations, revelations, Divine messages from the world of Spirit, the Angels and Stars ~ have all been a HUGE part of this. At this time, I am organizing how to present some of this information to you all, in a clear and precise way. (If you have listened to me on the radio, or have met me in person, then you already KNOW that my mind moves at the speed of light. So much so -- that often times my words have a challenging time catching up to my speech!)
While I "organize" my words for future blog entries, I wanted to share a few resources that I feel are important tools for your own transformation. I encourage all of you to spend ONE hour and listen to this week's radio show from one of my teachers, and mentors, Doreen Virtue. She was extremely brave to share some VERY important messages from the angels about global events ~ ALL of which I agree with, have known and shared with many of you, for quite some time. It's time for all of us to step up to the plate, become clear, and get to work!!! Here is the link to Doreen's show on Hay House radio (you may have to create a FREE account to listen, but I promise you it's worth it!):
Lastly, if you are looking for a book that is full of resources, spiritual messages, and specific information about how YOU can clear the way for ascension and make a BIG difference in our world -- I highly recommend the book "Raising Our Vibrations for the New Age" by Sherri Cortland, ND. Sherri writes in a way that is super easy for everyone to understand. I also recommend the blog Transcending Consciousness, written by my dear friend, and fellow lightworker, Lisa Transcendence Brown. You can find their links, by clicking here:
My intention is to continue to share light, healing, and how to move forward, so that we can ALL make a difference -- in our own lives, for others, with all on our planet and beyond.
With LOVE, LIGHT & ALWAYS.... Aloha xo
I don't know about you, but it sure has been a challenging year so far. Don't get me wrong, I fully embrace all that is occurring as we move towards the shift of vibrational pull. Sometimes though, it can be tiring when you feel that your hard work is not rewarded in ways that are noticeable. Many of us work long hours towards our goals and love what we do. Myself included. And some of you have set your intentions to make positive changes in your lives, and when we don't see the fruit on the tree right away, we wonder if it was ever planted. Let me remind you ~ that what you seek isn't "out there". It is within you. Once you are able to love your process with honesty and grace, you will continue to search for recognition and live in your head, or ego. Always searching for approval and recognition, is not fulfilling. It drains you of the very essence of your own love.
All of us on the Lightworker path certainly do deserve credit for our hard work and dedication. But the most important person we can receive validation from, is ourselves. Yes, I am guilty of wanting acknowledgment or praise from my students, clients, teachers, and my husband. I am after all, a spiritual being living in a human body. But I have recently learned some valuable lessons in this life's journey and themes that have been a pattern for so long are coming to a close. I stand firm in my faith and will practice what I preach. So, let's just pat ourselves on the back and whatever you might want to hear from others, say it to yourself! Look in the mirror and tell yourself, "wow, you are making great changes!", or "you're doing a brilliant job!". You might feel its silly at first and you might even get a little emotional. Let us all love ourselves with grace and give ourselves the validation that we seek outside. We all have that inner chatter and we talk to ourselves all the time, but often the words are not too validating or very loving. And yet we are the first to tell someone else they're doing a great job! My Spirit Guides are always affirming that I am doing a wonderful job, and they love me unconditionally. Then, my "other voice" comes in my head and says, "Did you do that well enough? Couldn't you have done that better? What are you forgetting? Did you get everthing done today?" and so on and so forth. Now, that's not very loving.....is it....
All of the time we spend outside of ourself seeking praise, acknowledgement or love, is a big sign that we are feeling empty and we need to praise our own self. Spirit acknowledges our hard work and loves us unconditionally. We should too. In the greater scope of this thing called Life, we are each other looking back at us in the mirror. So, please join me and go ahead and pat yourself on the back. Hug yourself. Beam pink light of pure love and compassion into your heart and soul. Bask in the sunshine of your own grace! You are amazing! Hear the applause from your angels. Then get yourself out in the world and do what you came here to do. <3
“In prayer you communicate with God; in meditation, God communicates with you ...
In silence lies the ability to listen.” - Julia White
Last night on my radio show "Mind Body Spirit Hour", my co-host Shelly Wilson and I, shared the importance of connecting with our higher self through meditation. We realize that meditation is a stumbling block for many people. This is mostly because we traditionally think of meditation as a quieting of the mind, an activity by which we leave all our thoughts behind and become blank canvases. For those who can achieve this, meditation is a wonderful component of their spiritual lives. But for the rest of us, meditation looks like something reserved for monks. In fact, one of the most common statements I hear over and over again from my clients is that they "just can't meditate".
What if I gave you some simple steps to get started, and told you that meditation does not require hours of practice per day? As we mentioned last night on the radio, I promise that once you make the decision to awaken your spirituality and connect with your soul -- you will find that changes start happening. Once you make the decision to connect to your higher self and ALL that is, we are awakened to our true calling. Just being willing to release all pain on the cellular level, we begin a metamorphasis almost instantaneously.
Okay, so you have set the intention to open yourself up to the wonders of a spiritual life -- now what? At least once a day, all you need to do is sit in quiet and stillness. Then simply watch as your deep desires slowly open before you, revealing the honesty and joy of your higher self.
Meditation doesn't have to be difficult. Meditation is simply focused awareness on ALL that is within you, waiting to be valued. Instead of trying to suspend all thoughts during meditation, decide to pay attention only to certain thoughts. For instance, listen to your breathing, or gentle classical music, orfocus on the sounds of your heart beating. You can also focus on a single image such as a candle, budding rose, or an angel figure. Try not to get frustrated with any thoughts that want to intrude. Instead, simply greet those thoughts and ask them to please step aside for now. Then, go back to the image or the focus you had before.
Here are some basic pointers on how to meditate:
1) Sit comfortably. I prefer to sit in a chair where my feet can rest comfortably on the ground. There's no need to sit in a cross legged position on the floor, unless you are perfectly comfortable that way. You may also lie down, but if you do, you might fall asleep.
2) Dress in comfortable clothes. You really don't need to go out and buy special yoga pants, etc! Casual sweat pants, or even pajamas, will do.
3) Eating right before you meditate isn’t recommended. If you eat and then want to meditate, plan to take an hour to let your meal digest. Avoid eating heavy or processed foods prior, so that energy flows easier and your focus remains unclogged.
4) You can light candles, burn incense, use crystals, etc. Whatever puts you in the mood. Try to do this each time you meditate, so that it becomes a ritual for you. Meditating at a certain time everyday, is also helpful.
5) Start with 5-10 minutes a day, with the intention of working your way toward longer meditation. It's a lot easier than you think, once you get used to it. Some people spend an hour a day, or 30 minutes in the morning and at night, meditating. The more you meditate, the stronger your connection to your higher self will be. I personally meditate for at least 15 minutes every morning. When I do not take that time for myself, I notice a big difference -- I might feel rushed, or more easily frustrated with others, or the task before me.
Most people don’t believe they have the time to set aside an hour a day to meditating. And that’s fine. You don’t need to start with an hour, or even plan to work up to that. You can start with five minutes. Even two minutes will do! For example, if you take two more minutes each morning when you shower, and you allow yourself to stand under the water and meditate - you’ve practiced! Or, before you leave the house for the day, set down all your stuff by the front door, go sit on the couch, and focus on your breath. Two minutes, five minutes, and what do you know - you’ve practiced! The key is to be consistent and patient.
5) When you first begin meditating, where you do so is as important as how often and how long. In time, you’ll be able to meditate during a traffic jam, or while waiting in line at the grocery store. Pick some place at home or at the office where you can reliably go for a few minutes to get some peace and time to yourself. Maybe this is at the foot of your bed, or an unfrequented stairwell in the building where you work. Wherever it may be, make that your meditation space. You can choose to decorate it with candles, a soothing water fountain, tapestries, or crystals. Decorate with whatever will help make the location sacred to you.
6) Next decide how you would like to meditate. Do you want to sit in silence and clear your mind? Do you want to chant with a mantra? Do you want to play soft music? Do you want to focus on a candle? Do you want to send your intentions out into the Universe? Do you want to make contact with your higher self? You can simply say on the in breath, "I am light" and on the out breath, "I am love". Start with breathing naturally and purposely until you have created a comfortable rhythm.
As you commit to your practice, you’ll find that over time, how you meditate will change. There is no need after awhile to become too attached to one way of meditating. As your spiritual self becomes a stronger presence in your life, you will know what feels best for your purpose.
So what are you waiting for? Lets give it a try right now.
Two weeks ago, a bunch of us gathered in my living room to watch the DVD, "You Can Heal Your Life". It is an inspiring true story of a woman and reknowned author, Louise L. Hay, and how she changed her entire life by the power of positive affirmations & self healing.
If you have begun the wonderful journey of healing your own life, perhaps you are using affirmations to assist you daily? Perhaps you have become frustrated that you feel in a cycle of "nothing is happening" yet? And maybe you want to give up and return to the old negative self talk?
Well, please let me remind you that you are not alone. In fact, once you've begun saying and thinking your affirmations, it's important to practice patience. One of the biggest mistakes people make when using affirmations is giving up too soon! But would you not water your garden because the seeds didn't become grown plants overnight? No, of course not! Try and think of yourself as a gardener of your own life! You must cultivate the soil, water, weed, and fertilize to grow a beautiful life. To grow a wonderful life takes releasing the past, learning to think more effectively with affirmations, and trusting that your beautiful garden will blossom fully in time.
Using meditation and visualization can actually speed up the body's receptivity to positive changes, because these practices take you to a more powerful connection with your subconscious mind and Universal Energy. Meditation is simply a process of focusing your attention on your breath or on a short phrase. This will help you to balance emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. When you're in that quiet place, your heart and mind are connected, so doing your affirmations at this level is even more powerful than simply repeating them when you are in your usual busy, conscious state.
Many of my new clients, my friends and listeners on my radio show, tell me that they just can't stay focused enough to meditate! What if I told you that many years ago, I also struggled with "sitting still & quieting my busy mind"?! I want to offer a simple exercise to get you started.
Sit comfortably and relax. You don't need to sit cross-legged on the floor, if that isn't comfortable for you. Simply sit in your favorite chair, with your head rested & your feet firmly on the ground. Focus your attention on your breathing. As you breathe in, think to yourself, "I AM", and as you breath out, think to yourself, "relaxed." Count your breaths from one to four. Simply count mentally each time you exhale, starting with one and going to four. Repeat the counting over and over. Think to yourself, "calm and at peace" with each breath, or any other phrase that is relaxing for you. Imagine yourself in a beautiful, peaceful setting.
I also recommend Creative Visualization. This is something we all do every single day, yet we do not always visualize positive scenarios. Instead, we focus on that person who cut us off on the way to work, or how much we have on our to-do list, or all of the bills we have to pay, etc.
Creative Visualization is imagining, seeing, feeling, or describing something you would like to create. They bring in all of the senses along with affirmations to give your subconscious mind the EXPERIENCE of the reality you are creating. Your subconscious mind doesn't know the difference between the reality "out there" and the one you create inside, so visualizations create a new "inner landscape" that in turn produces results on the outside. Many people say they cannot visualize, yet they can always describe their backyard, vehicle, or kitchen!
When we can somehow picture or feel what it is we want, then we're visualizing. It's really that simple. The feeling part is actually more important than really "seeing" the new reality, as the Universe responds most quickly to the feelings you send out (this is called your vibration). So, go ahead and give it a try! Once you are in a relaxed place, think or quietly repeat your affirmations, and visualize what your life would be like when they have already happened! Visualize as many details as you can! Is your desire to live on the ocean, start your own business, be happily married, or in a better state of health? Whatever it is that you want to create in your life, YOU have the power within you to do so. All you need is to be in alignment with what you say you want in your life. Take time everyday to meditate, affirm that you are achieving your desires easily, and visualize it as so -- really FEEL what it would be like, to BE living the life you desire!
