Preparing For December 2012 — From My Heart
Have you noticed how the compression is amping up BIG TIME as we approach the end of November? We are in the river and on the rapids that precede the waterfall – and another opportunity for significant transformation. We’re about to step into the most the most significant opportunity for transformation of our lives: December 2012.
As with everything, we have a choice in how we respond to and interact with this opportunity.
What we see “out there” is a reflection of what is going on inside. What is being reflected “out there” is the nature of one’s relationship with self and the Divine. This perspective has been challenging for me to accept at times. It forces me to look inward to address issues that appear to be separate from me (for example in relationship with others, situations or circumstances, etc.).
Let’s put this into context within the framework of the first three levels of consciousness: Victim sees “out there” as responsible for the pain and suffering and beyond control. Manifestor thinks “out there” is a function of thoughts – and thinking is the solution. Conduit sees that there is nothing “out there” – we are all one – it’s all in here. The solution is beyond thought.
Here’s a quick story about what I mean – and how your consciousness (or the person you’re talking/working with) impacts the context:
I was in session early this week with a client who is struggling with anxiety and depression. She’s feeling VERY stuck in her life and completely overwhelmed. She has a coach from an organization that is focused in the Manifestor consciousness. Her coach recently told her she needs to think a new thought – that she’s attracting all this negativity in her life because of her thoughts.
This woman was at the end of her rope – crying and pleading with me for an answer to how she could possibly do this (have a new/better thought). In my typical delicate fashion (I’m kidding – I wasn’t very delicate about this) I told her that her coach is full of horse manure. THOUGHTS are not the root source NOR are they the root solution. The problem lies beyond thoughts in one’s relationship with self – and the Divine.
This wasn’t very fair of me. From the perspective of her coach’s consciousness, the coach is right. For me there’s a very different answer. This woman has been moving towards surrender for a long time – and she’s running head long into the problems associated with thinking that your thoughts are always the answer to the challenges that life serves up.
As the session came to a close my client reported feeling more relaxed and calm than she had in a long time. The sadness and anxiety had begun to clear and she was realizing there is another path to peace and calm and joy that doesn’t involve intending or thought. And she had begun to explore what it means to surrender.
The primary opportunity we have right now lies within. If I am to take full advantage of this time – especially the quickening that’s happening here at the end of November as we head into December, I will look inside for both the workshop where the work will be done – and the project that needs to be done. I invite you to join me in turning inward as you prepare for December.
As you transform yourself, you transform the world.
Since I’ve been switching up the format of my weekly From My Heart emails to you so I thought I’d switch it up one more time and add a second theme to this week’s blog: Gratitude.
In the States we celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow (Thursday). My daily practice includes gratitude as I’m sure yours does as well. This week, I’m in deep with gratitude– and I’d like to share some reflections and gratitude with you.
I am so grateful to you for …
–> The invitation to join you on your spiritual journey. It’s an honor to be with you on the most important aspect of your life.
–> Giving me the opportunity to make my living sharing my divine given gifts with the world. I wake up every morning in gratitude for my thriving business – and you make this possible.
–> Being honest with me and challenging me with your perspective and feedback. Because of you, I have grown on every level.
–> Sharing your victories, challenges, and frustrations along the way. I have learned so much from you through your emails, phone calls, and blog comments. I’m grateful for your vulnerability. You inspire me.
–> Playing with me. Thank you for reading what I’ve written and sharing your thoughts and perspective. When you also show up at my group events (whether free events like 4 Days of Healing, Solstice For Your Soul, or paid events like A Day of Awakening or my weekly group sessions) and participate, it gives everyone involved – including you and me – the opportunity to experience what we all know: we are all one. Experience is what bridges the gap between being stuck and experiencing real world momentum. Experience is what directly leads to transformation. Thank you.
In addition to this weekly blog and my other programs and events, I’m focusing on a new way of connecting and playing with you by connecting on facebook. I’ve built some cool rewards to say thank you as we build community on Facebook.
1) I’m wondering if we can get to 1000 likes to my professional page before the end of the year. When this happens, I will announce a facebook fan only free group healing and Q&A session (the announcement will be on facebook exclusively). The recording of the session will also be included with this thank you gift. (for those that participate live, I’ll also be giving away one single private session ($500 value) via phone or Skype).
2) When we get to 500 fans, I’ll be giving every fan an MP3 of this week’s group session which was about preparing for December of 2012. Let’s connect on facebook (like the page then keep your eye on your newsfeed for these gifts)!
Thank you. For reading, challenging, opening, sharing, connecting, playing and connecting. I am so grateful!!
That’s it for this week … From My Heart.
PS – Don’t miss out on this opportunity to participate in a Day of Awakening next Thursday the 29th. Christine Kloser and I have put together an extraordinary event to help you more deeply experience happiness in every area of your life right now no matter what’s going on. Learn more and sign up now.
PPS – It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the breadth and range of challenges that are facing us individually and collectively right now. Remember this: as you transform yourself you transform the world. Focus on transforming yourself – the rest will naturally follow.
