As a life coach I work with people in all stages of life. I have found that true transformation holds both challenge and success. I love it! Each one of us can a create a life we love!
Recently I caught up with Mary; we currently work together monthly. She is living proof of a life gaining momentum towards peace. In the past two years she has almost accomplished her professional goals. She is also healthier; much stronger and balanced.
With that being said, lately she was feeling overwhelmed. We discussed her current work, home, and love life. She is managing to balance her busy life, and has accomplished a tremendous amount of positive change. She has gone from crying on the bath room floor because of a failed marriage, to becoming a courageous independent woman.
She has gone from having no clear idea of how to support herself, to becoming a professional in her chosen field.
Her home and family continue to require balance and patience. She is doing it all with- out the support of a life partner. This is her crunch time, finishing her education, working and raising children. Mary recognized she was so caught up in the tasks at hand; she had forgotten to enjoy her huge successes. She has accomplished so much, and yet was not feeling the excitement.
Perfect! I was excited to help her identify where she is currently losing her energy; her vitality. Soon Mary would unplug from the energy drain and experience the joys of success! This is a reminder of the need to pause, and look at the big picture of our life. The risk of not connecting and acknowledging personal success, can leave us feeling stressed and over- burdened.
The first place we looked into was her work environment. She shares her office with many people. There is a high level of disruptions and chaos due to the nature of the business. Her manager prefers to work in an unorganized fashion. The manager also shares personal stories that bring an unprofessional energy into the work environment. This all adds up to big stress! Fortunately, she will be in her own office in a few months.
Recognizing potential stressors and managing how you react to them is huge. It also helps to stop the flow of negative energy. We developed a plan of preventing the manager from dumping her personal problems. Having clear boundaries in the work place keeps the environment productive and professional. Knowing that she will soon have her own work space is also a de- stressor. We also discussed pre paving her work days. She is taking control of her environment.
We then examined her social life. She is blessed with a nice network of friends and family. The only challenge with this is, she has grown and changed. Not all of her family and friends have the ability to keep up with where she is now. Some of them like the old version of her. She had different expectations for herself and her life a few years ago. There is an adjustment period in teaching people how she wants to be treated.
She has not officially entered the dating world after her divorce. How -ever she does occasionally spend time with a long- time friend that happens to be male. Their relationship has not changed much from high school. He shares all his successes and problems with her, and she is not receiving any emotional support from him. She also recognizes that spending time in a relationship that doesn’t emotionally fulfill her is draining. The age of the relationship also keeps her connected to old patterns, beliefs, feelings and prevents her from finding a healthier relationship.
Mary inspires me. She has begun putting clear boundaries on her time and relationships. She is ready to date again and is clear on how her new partner will treat her. Her life is a beautiful example of how we continually shift and grow .
Most of us can relate to pieces or even all of what my client was experiencing. Life is a dance of balancing our inner truth, courage, beliefs and making sense of our feelings. Luckily there is a steady flow of energy that brings clarity and the answers we seek. We are all just where we should be .. When we are individually or collectively ready for awareness and joy.. It’s all here.
The idea that we are connected by our thoughts and words strung together; that this allowed us to form an identity is not quite correct. We are all so much more. We have created an illusion that we are part of the energy of the thoughts and words that bind us together, but we ultimately exist in a pure state. Thoughts and words can be an entrapment. They are illusion. In the space of all that is, you vibrate at a level of no return. It’s moving beyond sight, sound, words and even feelings.
Yes, feeling is the next step to understanding eternity (from where we are in human form) it’s to feel above all else .. but the feeling will evolve to just awareness or or completeness.. there is no more, all else falls away.
If you can imagine.. there is the you that walks the Earth.. The next level is awareness of the canopy of words and thoughts of eternity that bind us together. Next is the awareness of feelings, sensations of all. That is the last illusion or barrier to transcend .. the last illusion of separation..
and beyond the barrier of thoughts and words, and then barrier of compassion and awareness, rests completeness .. I could go on to say eternity.. but this is a place of no words .. no ideas.. no separation..
We are all in various forms of transcending or becoming all.. We are in the process of letting go of ideas, thoughts , beliefs. As this happens the energy of the heart center expands and this allows more compassion and even wonder for the life / death and rebirth cycle . As we evolve we begin to operate using our senses.. This is where sight, hearing , and feeling blend into one form of communication.. one being.. one vibration.. the next phase is the separate beings that vibrate on the same frequency become the same, no separation ..but there is transcendence beyond the vibration of collective form.. and this dissolves or if you prefer becomes complete all one.

I struggle with finding the word to describe our highest form. It is a place that has no separation. I see the steps of spiritual evolution that leads us. I see the place as wholeness, all that is.. but it is greater than that. It is the complete form of all; all that is. I am tempted to describe it as a void; although a void hints at something missing. Our final state is missing nothing...
I will continue to dive deeper into the knowing and share as I learn.
My husband and I are in Santa Barbra for a week of Infinite Illumination, with Panache Desai. I have been looking forward to both the teachings and community. John was not completely sold on the whole idea of illumination. He confessed to having plans of an alternate experience if needed.
Just before the opening of the event we walked on the beach. It felt so good to just feel the sun and begin to get in a space that welcomes new experiences. We strolled for a bit before I decided to sit down and take it all in. My partner continued on.
Once seated, I discovered what had energetically pulled me ; why I had stopped walking. There was a lone seal. It had recently suffered significant injuries and appeared thin. He struggled to move along on the sand. The water was slowly coming in. The seal worked hard to stay ahead of the rising tide.
More people stopped. Someone put a call into a marine life rescue center. The dark gray and white water neared the seal as we made eye contact . This image has stayed with me.
The following morning I went to check on the seal. I was surprised to find there was no beach, just powerfully strong waves moving everything in their way. The tide was so high and strong it disturbed the rocks and drift wood. Each wave brought further shifting. The ocean is an inspiring reminder of eternal energy. The pull of gravity, crashing of waves and creating new coastline has gone on forever.
I felt a sense of grief imagining the seal lost in the sweeping of the ocean. I was envisioning him loosing strength and succumbing to the cycle of life and death. In my mind the scene played out in colors of dark greys and browns. I couldn’t stop myself thinking about the gentle animal being taken out to sea. I witnessed him becoming smaller and smaller until no more.
The retreat offered the possibility of expansion or increased awareness. In one of the first meditations I saw the seal again. He was surrounded by the dark water. He tumbled through the churning darkness farther and farther from shore. As I watched him the color of the water began to lighten. I saw blues and greens and purples. Sunlight appeared. The light moved through the water. I noticed my guide the seal was not afraid. He was moving deeper into the flow of the ocean; the eternal flow of life. The current offered him help in removing what no longer served him. I witnessed his physical body was becoming lighter, moving with ease, and completely healed. It became difficult for me to distinguish the seal, from the light, water and even from myself. Everything flowed together. At this point I began to let go of my fear of dying alone. Really I had no idea that I was carrying this fear with me. I have a life partner, family and friends. I have great faith in eternal existence, and yet this fear was present.
We are half way through the week of Illumination and I have witnessed the unlimited potential for light where fear is stored. I am in a place of gratitude for the seal that reminded me of our eternal connection to each other, peace and all that is. My husband has discovered an even greater appreciation for the magic of life. This experience has brought us closer and will have lasting expression.
Know that it is safe to fully let go of all expectations and all thoughts, even let go of the origin of all thoughts. Allow your- self to soar at unimaginable heights experiencing the vastness of the ocean or night sky in you. Awareness of our physical selves is with us as we begin this new experience. We feel the cool air, or taste the salt of the ocean water. We might even feel a discomfort or fear that reminds us of our attachment to our physical selves. This discomfort is found at the edge of awareness. Shift deeper in to allowing full connection and experience the ocean of all that is, the expanded version of all. Each wave of awareness helps remove the confusion, pain or beliefs that are no longer needed. The awareness of you and your personal history is erased as you become lighter, all wounds healed . You are guided by sounds and colors that slowly become part of who you are. There is no separation between the ocean of intelligence and you. All parts of you have merged with grace. Thru the twisting and turning of this cosmic ocean you begin to shed the part of you that is no longer essential to live in a state of grace, or awareness. You have become a state of oneness that has always been you. It took the courage to wonder what was on the other side of pain/fear. What lies deep within. What am I shielding from others? As I slowly resolve to occupy a new self in awareness my life changes to include a comprehension of God or a understanding that we all are closer to this point of expansion than ever before . We are simply looking in the wrong direction. We must walk ourselves to the precipitous and risk losing ourselves, or what we believe is our self, before we all courageously find ourselves flying in new directions to new species , uncovering what was mislabeled as wrong. This new intelligence is far wiser then then you have given yourself credit for. This new intelligence is the mastermind or creator of all that you see and know. And yet with the willingness to move beyond all that you consciously know, your expanded intelligence, expanded self, will carry you into a new existence. A world devoid of time and space. We are limitless in the potential of all. We will travel beyond sound, sight, memories, and influences TO JUST BEING.
Human bodies and minds are amazing as individual systems; but even more when they unite together. They communicate so seamlessly, it’s almost impossible to understand. They operate in perfection at all times. Every thought counts. Each cell, blood vessel, organ and bone knows exactly what to do. The brain, heart and mind work together to keep the human form alive and aware. Our body is a place of many miracles occurring simultaneously.
Our body and mind are both able to adjust, shift and recover. Think about a person that is suffering a broken bone. Their body compensates and functions at the highest level possible. Our bodies know how to compensate due to disease and unhealthy lifestyles.
Sometimes our physical selves over compensate. An anaphylactic reaction is an example of a physical body over compensating for a perceived threat. The compensation Is more dangerous than the original threat.
Our mind (or consciousness) is also able to compensate and heal. Our conscious mind is the realm of perception. It quickly and efficiently labels situations as something that is good or something that is to be feared. This helps keep our physical body safe, as well as our emotional body safe. All the experiences of the conscious mind are shared with our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind has the ability to hold on to everything. It can save all the feelings and emotions of past experiences. Eventually our deepest beliefs will affect our conscious mind.
Our reactions will eventually be based off of our subconscious thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
Depending on the health of our subconscious mind, we experience a world of love or fear. Ideally our subconscious will be a place of neutrality. With the practice of meditation and possibly therapy, we can clear our mind of blocks that have settled in. Our subconscious is also our link to experiencing the Law of Attraction and manifesting.
I like to think of our subconscious mind as a resting point for thoughts. It is this place that we determine if we want the current thoughts or beliefs manifesting in our life.
We should be able to slow down in life enough to connect with our subconscious mind.
Our subconscious in it’s pure state, is a place of neutrality. I visualize the subconscious mind holding our highest potential in this life. It is the energy that connects our souls, mind, and heart. It is always ready to manifest a brilliant existence.
Our subconscious minds also carry the imprints from past lives. They are the lessons or karma that brought us back to this physical body. Maybe this life time we can clear them for good!
What happens when we experience blocks in our mind?
When we don’t have a flow of positive thoughts and vibrations in our mind, our physical self will be effected. For example, if we tell ourselves we are unlovable, our heart may receive messages of fear and lack. Imagine the heart shutting down in attempt to save the love it currently holds. This is similar to the anaphylactic shock mentioned before. The heart begins to shut down in an attempt to save any loving energy circulating the body. This shut down of heart energy triggered by subconscious fears, threatens the wellness of the physical self and emotional self.
Blocks or lack of flowing energy in our mind affect our heart and potentially any area in our physical body. Not only do we need to care for our body with sunlight, good nutrition and self-care, but also care lovingly for our mind.
To thrive in our human form we need to focus on love and the highest vibrational experiences. Practice self-care. Visualize releasing what is blocking your wellness. Connect to only loving, healing energy flowing thru your conscious mind, subconscious mind and connect to your superconscious mind.
One of the easiest ways to do this is prayer and meditation.
Energy is contagious. The healthier you are and the more you experience the flow of life energy, the more you will be experience the Super Conscious mind. This is where we connect to the highest vibrations, higher self, and all that is. The Super Conscious is beyond time and space. The super conscious is energy that is found in your heart, mind, soul and all that is; really everything The Super Conscious connects you to the light of the Divine.
Super charged Energy
The other day I left my house for a quick errand. It was probably about 10 degrees Fahrenheit, with snow on the ground. I slipped my feet in my son’s shoes. I had the funniest sensation. His shoes contained so much of his energy I felt like him.. I trotted out the door and vibrated with his goofy, 11 year old energy. His happy, carefree energy was easy for me to recognize.
This reminded me of how we all carry super charged energy with us. We all share our energy (and receive other’s energy) and we all contribute to the collective energy. Be aware of what feels good, and if something doesn’t feel good, shut it down, or take the shoes off..
....In a neutral state.. There is no right or wrong .. There is only the presence of grace. This state of neutrality can call forth an amazing amount of powerful energy to create a life that allows the highest vibrational energy to flow in and create an existence where beauty and eloquence of soul matter.. A world where only the truest concept of love and light are allowed to thrive.. A place within you holds the most powerful, sweetest, truest form of love, of God and all that is..
Surrounding God is a place of neutrality.. In this area that is of God and yet not aware of the connection, there is neither good nor bad.. Knowing that you can find and connect to God within yourself , you can also find and connect to God in all. Nothing exists without the presence of God.
We each also have the ability to experience emptiness. The place of emptiness and fear do not truly exist. Our minds have created time and space, a place where fear can cultivate.
It is when we go to our truest form of self; free of time and space, that we connect to all that is.. God.
The place of neutrality that connects to God, grows and expands into a greater form of self..

If we take one step to the left, or one step to the right, our path will be changed forever.
