Goodmorning to all the readers. I am back…and will be now weekly!  I sit this morning pondering the vastness of the divine.  With the permission of my client, I wish to share a story with you today.  This client has a son with severe behavioral problems.  When I would coach her with disciplinary tactics, she would share that she was afraid of “breaking his spirit” or being unkind.  She feared that if she set boundaries with him, it would be unkind.  Now by no means would I recommend any type of corporal punishment to her, but when it came to not letting him play that day if he continued disrespect to her, and act out, that was another story.  Boundaries were an important part to getting peace in her life, and his life.  He needed the boundaries or he actually on an unconscious level would feel unsafe, and lack respect for her.  Many of my adult clients who have parents that did not show strength in their energy while they were growing up, look down on their parents now because it is part of our nature when developing to want to be shown the way and feel protected and safe, as well as be given clear messages on how to be.  The children look to us on how to be in the world and to show true strength in character.  The question is: what is strength?

In my opinion, strength is taking action for the highest good, and not from a space of wanting to necessarily control for the sake of being right, or getting your way.  Strength is speaking truth.  Strength is freeing ourselves from victim mentality (this may be the most important of all). Strength is vulnerability with others by allowing them to help or love you. Strength is taking action that is clear and direct without intent to harm, or wishing others to not have happiness.  Strength is not putting our agenda on others because we think it is right.  Strength is letting go sometimes.  Strength is holding up the light even if the reflection must be intense.  Strength is having the courage to look honestly at self, and stop blaming.  Strength is seeing through actions, and holding up your light if those actions do not match your frequency.  This may mean you take action to deflect and transmute negative energies.  The key hear is to do so wishing no harm and to transmute that person’s darkness to help.  If they are coming to you with their darkness, be sure, you are there to help them simply by witnessing, then dissolving with  pure light.  You are there because they need exactly what you have.  You don’t do this is in a holier than thou way, or entitled, or even with a putdown.  You do this with complete neutrality about what they do.  You do this by letting divine energies in: your higher self, Buddha, The Christ, Archangels and the other light beings you may feel aligned with.

Going back to the case of this mom and son, it did not work when she said to her son all the time, “Sweety, I need you to not do that”.  Often, he would do the behavior anyway.  However, when she shifted the message to, “No, this is not acceptable in our home.  It is unkind.” with a firm tone, lo and behold, the behavior stopped.   This is because the true message came through, and it was that she actually needed to teach him what kindness was, not by saying “Be a nice boy”, but by actually showing him the difference between a kind action, and an unkind action by affirming which was which.  Hence, she stood in her power through clarity.

This example is the microcosm, of the macrocosm.  We as pieces of the divine, as children of the Earth, as extensions of the higher self, aspects of the Supreme Being of Earth, and emanations of Source, will sometimes experience the wearing the down of the egoic mind through challenge, or through intense situations.   We must always know that every experience is a gift from divine helping us either release the ego or wear down the defense mechanisms we may have that block love and light in.  The Divine may show up as “your enemy”, and the divine may show up as losing a job.  If you are overly attached to control or to being in power in the egoic sense, then the Divine Self, will wake you up with love, or at times a swift kick in the butt. We can resist all we want, but since we ourselves are divine in human form, we only do it to ourselves.  We do it to ourselves to evolve, and we do it to ourselves to experience.  We also carry a vibration that will emanate out and re-appear sometimes immediately, or sometimes years later.  Know if the vibration we hold is one of manipulation, or other maladaptive behaviors, this vibration simply rests in your frequency and summons similar vibratory experiences.  It is not a punishment.  This is where organized religion has turned people off.  There is not punishment.  Humans are the ones who punish each other (and other species too). There is creation.  There is frequency.

It is time to let the divine move through you, and this movement, may not always be sweet or apple pie.  It may be fierce.  It may need to be powerfully intense to wake you up.  It may lead you to situations you don’t understand.  Do not blame, for it is all a hologram.  It is all you, and the vaster divine co-creating in perfection to continue to wake you up and evolve.  Welcome it, and witness it with open eyes.  See the truth of what you are being shown.  If you do not understand a trial you are in, ask daily in mediation to know and understand the true reason for your situation.  Always look inward, and look deep into the heart for the answer.  Trace the heart back to source.

 

With light,

Positive energies prevail this full moon, particulary around projects you may have been working on bringing into fruition. A Capricorn full moon has the power to bring  to us the support we have been needing to fuel our most potent, passionate dreams. The way to bring about the most change from this moon has to do with going into your own dream space within to create.  It is a highly spiritual time today in which you can manifest from ones inner alchemy.

Why is this important?  Well, your whole reason for being in body is to carry out the mission of your soul.  When the planetary energies align to help you with this it is time to pay attention, for the more you achieve your soul mission, the less incomplete you will feel.  Fulfilling your souls longing brings you to a state of peace, and peace is truly what will bring about joy in your day to day life.  When you are at peace, you are in joy for there is no neuroticism when you are peaceful.  There is no worry, or anxiety, there is just peace and emptiness.  When I say emptiness, I mean the emptiness that rests in the divine state of oneness with Source. Let this full moon amplify your ability to feel complete so that you may then truly be of more service to all that is.  It is in this service to the whole that you will experience pure bliss.

Pay attention to the few weeks following the full moon to see what you have created.  Do not forget to focus on what you have, always, and do not be blind to your creations by looking at where you still wish for growth.  Own what you have created and your own personal ability to be that creator for the more you acknowledge your sovereignty as a divine being, the more the Universe will respond to you as just that.

Another powerful aspect of this full moon is the potential to feel deeply.  The alignment today supports you to deeply understand yourself. Ask the energies to help this deep insight and understanding to bring you the healing you have been needing for those areas that have been blind spots or areas where you get tripped up repeatedly.   The fact that you are reading this obviously shows you are deeply committed to healing.  You would not have been drawn here if you were not, so trust that the healing is coming for you.  The right people are being summoned now to help, and your own nature and truths are being assisted now for powerful illumination.

With Light,

This months theme has truly been around money for many. Money can be a beautiful exchange of energy or it can be a control device. Money may give a false sense of power, grandiosity, or the flip side can represent freedom.  Money can make people feel like the hero or the savior to others, but then can end up enabling those to not feel their full power.  Money can build the ego and cause it to think you need certain things that go along with lots of money, the clothes, the traditional beautiful people, and the false sense that others should give respect to you because you hold the key to freedom in this world supposedly.  However, respect comes deeply to those who truly respect and love themselves no matter what they have materialized on the outside.

I am amazed at how illusionary money power can cause people to be blind  to themselves and their issues.  To truly see ourselves, we need to be able to hear truth without defensiveness or resistance. In fact, if you hear something and immediately feel a visceral response to defend inside the body, chances are there is some truth to what is being said to you.

I listened to a video recently with Yogi Bhajan speaking, and let me tell you he is fierce when he speaks. Not sweet at all! He was speaking to the group about how the neuroticism of people cause them to constantly judge and pick on the things he says.  Those listening to spiritual insights immediately want to jump in and say, that is not true, or this is true.  Why not sit in the neutral mind and receive, absorbing whatever wishes to awaken something that needs conscious love?  Why react with anger to prove that you are ok, against what is heard?

Those whose life is consumed by making money, may very well make it, but there is another way to make it that will bring you much more fulfillment: LOVE and GROUNDING TO SOURCE. The grounding is especially important because the LOVE without grounding equals flakiness.  Love with grounding equals knowing of your worth, feeling tremendous self-love, that it overflows and pours out not only to those you speak to, but also pours out as ENERGY which attracts, more energy including money.  Speaking love, does not always mean sweetness.  It can be, but sometimes words need to be fierce.  Sometimes when people are in deep illusion and ego, you need to speak words loudly or intensely with no more sugar coats.  This is my lineage way.

This week, take a look at your relationship to money.  How does it consume you? How does it build you and add to your life, and how does it detract?  Ask in at least 3,  11 minute meditations to see yourself clearly and how money plays itself out in your life.

-Simply sit quietly, and call your higher self in.

-Then ask for 3 images to appear in your minds eye as information about your relationship to money.

-When the images appear, see if you can come up with 3 faulty beliefs that you are holding in the mind and body that are detracting from your fullness around money.

– For example, is there a belief that you must continue to work a certain job? Or is there judgments about how others should act with money?  Judgements and triggers about other people are information for yourself.  Clear these beliefs through finding where they rest in your body by saying them out loud and then thank them for being there. Yes, honor even your faulty beliefs.

-Next, breathe them out of the body and create 3 new affirmations for a new way you would like to live or a new belief you would like to have.

Example Belief: I have a lot of money, therefore people SHOULD treat me a certain way since this money gives me power in some form.

When you say this belief, let’s say you feel it in the 3rd chakra.

Next: I thank you body for holding this, I no longer need you, I release you. Exhale.

Affirm: I treat others as equals, and when they reflect to me something I do not like, I examine myself.

Do you see the difference? One way has entitlement, and the other way has consciousness!

I thank you for reading for you are me and I am you. We are one. Your souls complete my soul. “I am made whole by your life. Each soul, each soul completes me.”~ Hafiz  Let’s heal this together. We are in this together.

Peace, Ariah Velasquez

I get a lot of people coming to me with questions about the title of this article. Why do so many people on planet Earth seem to find relief through playing games to hurt, harm, get what they want, share a message without speaking it directly, or show someone they are hurt by hurting back? I see this as a wounded condition of some that are still waking up to the whole concept that we create our own reality. I also see this behavior coming from a place of people not spending daily time connecting to their underlying impulses, and subconscious issues. When we don’t spend time looking deep within on a daily level understanding what drives us, then we will tend to take actions that we feel are justified. We may say to ourselves, well if this person said that to me, then I am going to do this to them. This is the revengeful approach. Then their is the unconscious approach: well, I want to feel loved, so I will distance myself when I am afraid someone will not love me. These are just examples of the way humans play games with each other. Unfortunately, when it comes to these type of games, no one ever wins. And one of the biggest issues is that many times these actions are done towards others due to their own assumptions that something is happening, without ever discussing it with them or having proof. Sure, a person can have an intuition, but a lot of the time, interpersonal dynamics are misconstrued because of a person’s own wounding.

So, how do we deal with people that are doing these types of behaviors? We could choose to get angry, but that wouldn’t really solve anything, would it? In the past, I might have told myself or clients to talk it out with the person. However, what I have learned over the years is that if the other people are not willing to live from a non-blaming place, or if they are really not honest enough with self to explore their actions or role, a conversation proves fruitless. It just ends in pain. Psychologist Carl Jung said in so many words that communication is overrated. It made me chuckle when I first heard this because there is some truth to this. Communication really only works when people are really committed to trying to work things out. In compassionate communication techniques, there is a theory that as long as the other person is in a state of empathy, then the other one in conflict will come around. This may work 50% of the time…so then what?

Surrender and shift focus. Let them do what they do. Let them “win”, because it is only themselves they harm. Basically, ignore it. Do not put your attention on what they do. Do not even respond. If they come and meet you halfway with a loving action, that is when you respond. This is different than a game because you are choosing to focus on only positive energy. The intent is not to harm, and that is the difference. Then, if the person comes back at you with the old, less healthy energy, withdraw your energy again. You see, when you pay attention to things you don’t want, you merely attract it more. So it is taking the conscious stand to focus on loving actions and shift focus on all else. If they continue to use these manipulative behaviors in a way that is disturbing the homeostasis of your life, then it may be time if possible to shut the door. A Yogi tea bag said once on it, the purpose of life is to be joyful. I agree. Do not waste time and energy by focusing on people that take actions from unconscious places. And you know what else? Don’t worry about what they think of you. One of my favorite all time quotes is: it’s none of your business what other people think of you. True, so true.

Many people have lost their own family members due to what I speak of here, specifically in the lightworker community. This is because as you wake up to the truth of reality, you begin to see that all reflections are for information for you to heal. This means, that even the person doing the odd behaviors is there to teach you something and so you begin to be willing to sit vulnerably with others to resolve things. However, with these new skills, we also learn as lightworkers we may be disappointed when others haven’t quite reached that realization yet. In fact, when you sit with them vulnerably sharing with an open heart, they may even use that as a time to actually throw energetic darts. Yes, if this is in your reality, this may be trying to teach you something: to choose loving reflections. Sometimes the lesson alone is for you to detach from people and send them on there way, loving them as a soul from afar. You do not need to put up with abuse and games to be a lightworker. You merely need to live authentically. This can mean being aware when someone uses covert opportunities to harm. Choose those who vibrate from loving intention, truly. This may mean you find those to deeply connect with that are far and few between. That is why I believe many lightworkers keep to themselves and at times experience the illusion of loneliness. I believe once you are a person that is truly able to see beyond the actions of others, to see what is underneath, that knowing this information can sometimes bring up sadness as well. Yet, the less you focus on these actions, the more you will be propelled back to those that are of your true soul group of evolved beings. This statement is not a put-down for those that choose to play games. It is simply a matter of asking what kind of energies and feelings do you feel comfortable around. Trust your instincts. When something feels really bad, even if you may have a role in a dynamic, it probably is. It probably is a discordant energy that you are ready to release. This means releasing your part about it, and yes, sometimes releasing the person. This releasing of the person may be temporary. They may come around again and you will resonate with them in the future, but for now, accept what is. Accept what is and bless them on their way.

An exercise to release discordant energy:

Place the right hand over the left hand on the heart and say in your head or out loud:

My heart, I love you.

My mind, I love you.

I forgive myself for anything I have done or said that needs to be forgiven.

And I release my attachment to the unkind words or actions others have done or said to me.

I recognize my own beauty.

I believe in myself and in my dreams.

I am bountiful, I am beautiful, and I am blissful.

I AM.

I am at peace.

I am whole.

I am loved.

I rest in the light of this truth.

With much love,

Abundance is usually what people refer to as money, however, abundance means a great deal more than that.  You could say, abundance is an overflowing cup of energy. Whether you want that energy to be uplifting or not is your choice. However, many find money to be the pesky part about abundance that they cannot conquer, so I will focus a bit on this aspect specifically today as well as the big picture of abundance.

When we focus on emotions like anger, resentment, and depression, we tend to drain abundance in all aspects of our lives.  Also, when we tend to focus on work that drains our energy, we tend to fall ill over time, thus draining the abundant physical energy we have.

So then, one key here is focus.  Yes, many of us have heard, focus on what you do want, and then you will create it.  Except, it doesn’t quite always work just from this alone.  Finding out what you like to do, getting clear, and then taking actions toward that desire is paramount. Yet, too many people worry if they take action, and release themselves from doing what they don’t want, that they will then go without and not be able to take care of themselves.  It indeed takes courage to do what you want, and you may have some time periods where you  struggle a bit.

Hold on with commitment, because even though it seems like we’re going up in this New Earth, we’re actually going in. Wow. This ride is not for the faint of heart. It can be a vulnerable and volatile time as you go deeper and deeper into your rabbit hole. The deeper you go, the more you will find the illusion can test you with more intense, more covert manifestations. People will question you more than before, they will tell you that you are crazy, got it wrong, are not authentic, are dark and not light, and you will know this means that you are going in deeper, emanating more light to attract the response. And then it is your role to not go into feeling powerful from the attention, because whether it is negative or positive attention, it does not matter. It is feeding the energy body. So you must constantly check in with the self and release the need to be important, release the need to be special, release the need to be right. We are all, all of these things. Parallel realities allow us to be everything.

I love the quote from Rumi (gosh he is good):

“The truth was a mirror in the hands of God. It fell, and broke into pieces. Everybody took a piece of it, and they looked at it and thought they had the truth.”

This reflects truly what I say above. The need for humans to know it all, be righteous, and separate us vs. them is strong on this planet in one reality. Yet there is a dual consciousness going on all at once here, where the need for humans to feel connected and to say we are innocent, and know nothing with lots to learn also is pervasive. Which do you choose?

I find the more I go into the deep rabbit hole, the more I know nothing.  And even saying that could be a trick of the mind and a reason for it to tell you: “See you are so evolved now. You think you know nothing”. Oh boy, this can get really intense. You can loop within the loop, within the loop, within the loop. That is why enlightenment is emptiness. At least, I think it is! Lol! All you have dear ones is your experience.  This is all that matters. This is your enlightenment.  There has always only been one and that is you. You choose how you experience the Universe and what makes it the splendid place to be.

In my own experience, when I have felt the most clear, it has been when I have felt this emptiness I speak of.  To me, when I get the blessing of experiencing it (for with me it still comes and goes), I am a gurgling babylike consciousness, that is full of sweetness and wonder.  I have no thoughts that are charged with anything. I am innocent and love itself. When I have had this experience, I have not asked for it, at least not in that particular moment. It merely surfaces, because it always was.

And yet, there are ways to enter the rabbit hole more frequently. Deeply sharing yourself and accessing your creative nature will trigger it.  Do you notice when you get inspired by something, a book, a movie, a thought, you at times can go into this place of feeling deeply at peace and relaxed? Well, you have just entered the rabbit hole.

Creativity is a key to accessing all that you are for you are truly a creative being.  Why is it that those who express their creativity often are the leaders on planet Earth? It does not matter if you are in the arts.  Being creative means you utilize this place of inspiration within the heart to share. When you do this, you immediately become a leader because your manifestation as a creator activates within others their desire to create. Oh, what a sweet canvas. How fun this life can be.

Creations of all, light and dark, are only just the outcome of the intention underneath. I have heard someone say once why does spirit not hear when I say negative things? Why does spirit only listen to the positive, and not when I say I don’t want something? You are spirit itself simply in what appears to be separate form.  When you don’t want, you have a vibration attached to that. You vibration is not what you say. It is the spirit behind it that creates. Do not blame it on spirit, source, and the Universe not listening. You are all that.

As you go deeper and deeper into the spiral of life, claim your creativity, and shine it out to the world. Many I talk to say they do not know what is there’s to shine out to the world. They say they do not know what they find passion in. Here is a brief healing I share to access the creative you that was and is always there.

Sit quietly, in the morning time, early morning if possible.

Drink something, warm, and calming.  Even if it has caffeine, as long as it calms you and balances you that is fine.

Make your whole purpose of getting up to simply listen. Listen to yourself, listen to the environment you sit in. Just listen.

Next call in your higher self of the light to fill your tube of light up. The tube of light is your central channel that runs through your chakras, also known as the Shushumna.

Now ask you receive this transmission from your higher self the creativity activation, and the direct connection to the true nature of your mind. Visualize your mind dropping into you heart. Intend to feel the bliss of this merge.

End this activity by visualizing a huge violet flame encasing your whole energy field. Leave it around yourself for the rest of the day. It will help you transform.

This is very simple. Do this for 40 days (come on, 40 days is only a month and a week). Listen to your dreams during the 40 days. You may receive visitations early in the mornings by aspects of the self, the one, the source, appearing in forms like Jesus, The Buddha, Mary Magdalene, the Pleaidians, other beings you feel aligned with. Be prepared to open up your sight into a new room. See what comes up. Be with it.

These words are encoded with healing and light.

With much love,
