There is something much deeper going on in this election….

Again I do not comment on politics usually but I am seeing somethings that are very troubling this election cycle, beyond the normal nasty reteroic.

The energy of the past few yrs. reminds me of the time when Lincoln was president, a huge divide existed then  and still exists now and the racial issues still persist.

BUT the energy has shifted in some dramatic ways. First, when President Obama was elected, we all had great hope that deep change would be made and sadly much of that was stymied by the divisiveness & agendas of certain members of congress. The senator from KY was a key player in this.

So anger, frustration and disappointment have become large factors in this election.

And the underlying energy of division is also exemplified by the fact that a woman is running for the highest office in our land.

This represents a fundamental shift in energy ….. the white male is no longer the sole governing form of power and they are deeply afraid that their power will be subsumed. They hate Hillary for being a woman and cannot abide that a woman could be in charge.

Neurology studies have found that when a woman speaks it triggers a response in men’s brains that takes them back to their childhood, where their mother was the person in charge. So woman are labeled by men as shrill etc not based on their character  but based their brains response.

Linguistics shares that little boys at play are more into one-upmanship ( hierarchical thinking ) while girls tend to find similarities and commonality ( non hierarchical thinking)… this too is playing apart in the energy we are seeing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8yhGIft8Q8

Further on a more spiritual level the energy for decades has been moving from power driven leveled  hierarchical systems to a more fluid, inclusive and spiraling non-hierarchical system. To understand these two ideas  think of a set of stairs vs  a drop of water that ripples out into a pool.

The old hierarchical system was governed by male energy and the fluid encompassing spiral is more aligned with the female energy. So we are in the midst of this deep change energetically and the male energy is kicking and screaming as it’s power is released, so that a more balanced synergy of the male and female energies can combine and aspire to something new.

That a woman is running is not a surprise, nor is it surprising to see the negative male energy on the opposing side.

This negative divisive power driven bullying force that has consumed us is no longer the energy we need , nor it is an energy that is aligned with our time.

In any transition of energy we need stability, civility and a marriage of the male and female in balance is communion with each other so that the negative shadow does not take over.

We are at a precipice and we need to keep in mind and ask the question within ourselves… what model do we want to have to govern our nation….. a force of fear-based negativity that dominates or a stabilizing force that encompasses the whole & allows for the dynamic to change.

Fear will break us apart…. and as the Civil War showed us we are stronger together than apart.

What is your choice….. can you balance your inner male and female and step into this new energy?

Healing Symptoms by Working with Past Life Memory

In 1991 for the first time in someone other than myself I saw how past life memories can grip us and how physical symptoms can manifest as a result.

Lynn a student of mine came to class wanting to understand why her heart was beating so erratically and irregularly. She has been to the emergency room many times in the last few months and knew it was more than the lack of prenatal manganese that the doctors has told her was the cause of her hearts rapid and irregular beat.

She never imagines what would happen next, but her heart boomed as she walked to the door of class like never before on that wintery night. Perhaps it was fear–perhaps it was something else entirely.

We began class with the usual meditations to ground center and connect with ones inner knowing then since the class was exploring and working directly with the organ systems we naturally began with the heart that night.

The meditation was a simple one. I gently instructed people to connect with their hearts beat then guided them to go back in 10 year increments and visit the hearts of their past. Listening for anything the heart and body wanted to share with them, and see if there were any patterns of holding at the different time in their lives.

As I led the group in this process Lynn zoomed through this life and was whisked to a memory that shook her to the core. Here is what she remembered and felt in every detail.

Immediately she felt cold stone at her back and she saw the night sky filled with stars, she realized she was lying on a stone slab on her back, surrounded by her tribe. She knew she was being sacrificed to the gods and that she would never reach adulthood. She was about  to enter puberty, life was just about to begin for her.

Things became intense for her when she saw a man with a silver bracelet and a dagger in his hand standing poised to strike. She was frightened and did not feel this was an honor as she elders said it was. As he plunged the knife expertly into her chest, and removed her heart, offering it to the gods and taking a bite of her heart before offering it to the tribe. She watched this scene from above and felt a presence of woman singing to her as she spirit left her body. She said later that she understood how heart surgery felt after this experience.

As I asked everyone to return from this journey and come back to waking consciousness, each emerged with stories their hearts had reveled to them. Lynn shared what she remembered, felt and saw and as she spoke she realized that the man in her vision/memory was her boyfriend with whom she lived.

She said he too wore a wide silver bracelet in the present like the one she saw in the past. She was awestruck. But the most amazing thing she said was that her heart was quiet now, it was not beating rapidly or irregularly and she breath more deeply than ever before.

Lynn ‘s experienced an incredible release that night and regained a piece of her personal eternal story that calmed her heart and over the nest four months of class and 1-1 sessions her symptoms disappeared as she understood her relationship to the man she loved like never before.

Your body, as embodied spirit, is your greatest gift.  It sets you apart from other sentient beings, and makes you uniquely able to heal old wounds, memories and emotions by working directly with your body and consciousness.

You can discover not only who you are, but who you have been. This knowledge, which I call the” body of experience” lives within your cells, bones, tissues and chakra system. And this vast pantheon of info-energy can help you connect the dots in your life to both your recent and ancient past. Once you can see the patterns held within your body, as energy, emotions and beliefs, you have the opportunity to change these imprinted memories and traces from within‑ just like Lynn did.

I have moved my office.

Aloha,

I have been moving my office, so I have not been blogging lately.

However I would encourage you to go to www.healingorigins.com since it has recently been undated.

Lama Khemsar Rinpoche is coming to The SF Bay Area this summer to teach and give public talks. He is an clear and profound spiritual teacher.

Update about my workbook…… Now that I have moved I will be working on the workbook.  The Practices of Transforming Embodiment~A workbook of meditations.

 

 

—The gift of 2012—Hear the Stories and Song of your Soul

Each and every one of you has a story that is remembered by your consciousness,  your cells, bones and tissues.

When you discover the narrative of your past and story of your soul you can find aspects of your self and past life selves that can help you understand your symptoms, relationships and emotional blocks.

As you reconnect the dots  your true self comes alive and into balance. Harmony, power, truth and beauty manifest.

Balancing and remembering allows for the roots of old wounds, both physical and emotional to finally be laid to rest. Struggles evaporate.

MARRYING THE INNER FEMALE AND MALE IS KEY NOW. You are ripe for this  for bringing your intuition and intellect into alignment with  full awareness. The time is an ending only in that we are releasing an old way of being. Forces are aligning that make deep healing and empowerment possible.

This is the challenge and the opportunity  of 12.21.2012.

To find a new ways of being , beyond the old paradigms, to connect the dots to discover your ancient source self and heal and release the duality that has existed for eons.

Bringing light and energy into the bodymind  and building new neuro pathways, so you can be embodied  like never before—-in awareness with  cosmic  and individual consciousness singing with stillness and power.

This is the gift of the transformational moment we are in. Let go of your past. Lay down outdated ways of reacting both in your mind-body and nervous system.

Take a deep breath and breathe in the stillness—–the light of the stars in the night sky. And become ONE within your self and manifest this unity with all that is around you.

You are a spiritual being that has embodied on earth at this time – you are meant to know what it means to be embodied spirit.

The energy of the primordial wisdom is all around us —drink it in and allow for the energy of change within your cells, bones and tissues to course thru you and into the earth.

Visualize  a golden light of 10,000 suns radiate into your being and flow down your spine and into your legs and out your feet. See the energy flow into the earth along a grid that connects to the matrix within the earth.

Feed the earth with your energy and love and dip into her stillness and bring that back into your body. Be the bridge between spirit and the earth you are meant to be. And feel the deep connection that exists between all beings.

See the old structures melt away— see and feel compassion and peace replace fear. Imagine  a new earth where truth beauty and peace abide in fullness.

Clear The Way To Get Pregnant: Somatic and Energy Healing Can Help You

 

Clear The Way To Get Pregnant:

If you have been trying to conceive, this easy, yet profound, practice can help you achieve success. Bringing you new energy, vitality and balance to your mind, body and spirit that will allow you to clear the way to getting pregnant.

Many of you have been through the pain of loss, I know how devastating that can feel. It tears you apart. Your very soul is shaken to your core and you unable to breath. The loss is so huge you don’t think you will survive.

As a means of surviving, you pull yourself together and move on, thinking these emotions have gone away when in reality they have been suppressed— and without resolution they will only return often when you least expect it.

What I have seen in my decades of working in the field of healing is that these intense emotions, stay with you.

I have discovered that these emotions and traumatic experiences imprint themselves upon your very body. The grief, shock, pain and sorrow live within your bones, cells, tissues, energy body and organs. But there is hope.

In 1991, I devised a way to work directly with the body’s energy and organs to release these imprinted memories from the places where they have been hiding. This is what I can offer you, a way to work directly with the imprinted memories and emotions that are within you.

As a woman when you are intimate with a man you take him into your body, this leaves an imprint and an energy signature upon your womb, and sexual organs. His energy stays with you.

When you loss a baby through miscarriage or if you have had an abortion the energy stays with you in much the same way as a man’s energy stays with you.

This energy, vital force or chi seeps into your cells and settles there. If the relationship or pregnancy ends— you are left with the remnants of that experience as energy imprinted within you. Each intimate relationship you have takes up space within your womb, and energy body.

Likewise miscarriages and abortions have a similar effect, energy imprints are left behind. These imprints are like tiny scares. These events may not only leave you with emotional scars but with emotional residual energy that can deeply affect your ability to conceive.

I saw this first-hand 26 yrs ago, when I was working with a woman who had just miscarried. As she lay on the table images of old loves and embattled relationships began to surface in her mind’s eye. Deep grief and pain welled up as she revisited her painful past.

As this was occurring, energy from her womb streamed out of her body. As she cried tears for the losses and pain from her life, her energy began to release and clear.

This was the first time in someone other than myself that I saw and felt the power of how our past is imprinted within our body and mind. She had never thought twice about the wounds to her womb and yet here they were.

And yet it was so important to clear and resolve these hidden emotions in order to begin the healing process.

She walked away from that session struck by the difference in her body and mind, and how while disquieting at first her experience was, she left feeling lighter, as if, a burden had been lifted from her.

Loss is felt in your womb, in this lower energy center often referred to in Buddhist traditions as your second heart. It is also the place in your body that corresponds with your 2nd chakra, an area regarded as the seat of your emotions and relationships. So, in order to conceive, this area must be clear and ready to receive new life.

Because once these imprints are made they stay with you. They arise again and again until they are released once and for all. This emotional pain can keep you from conceiving. Your womb is too full energetically for anything else.

There is a great need to release your past relationships, pain, sorrows and miscarriages. Anything that has impacted you deeply must be released from within your womb. You need to revisit your past to heal your present of this I am sure and I know in my heart that this will enable you to make a start fresh. Free from the pain and suffering your womb and heart have held.

There is a simple and direct practice which can help you begin the clearing process. It can help you clear the way for deep and lasting healing of your womb enabling you to energetically make space for the baby you long for.

The child you long for will be drawn into that clear space and allowed to make a fresh unencumbered start in this world.

Transcending Family History

Recently I have been seeing the most interesting phenomena, generational emotional pain and patterns that pass from one generation to the next. Not only are similar emotions popping up but there seems to be a theme that is occurring as well. The patterns can be emotional and they may even manifest physically. Remarkably too is when one person with in the ancestral line works with the energy of the problem or emotion it changes for the entire living group .
By making personal changes , the whole soul of the family can change and the predominant issue or pain within the group changes. More later about this. It fascinates me.

What do you think? Can you see any patterns that cross generations?
