Past Life Integration vs Regression

The past wk, 2 clients have come to me, who have done regressions work thru hypnosis. Oddly while they  both found the information they gained valuable…..they did not know what to do with it or how to apply their new knowledge to their day to day lives.

As I listened to each of their stories I realized that they both had been left with knowledge but with no real life application to make the changes they so wanted to make in their lives. They still had the same issue after the regressions.

I have seen this before. And while sometimes knowledge is enough, to bring something out of consciousness and be released sometimes there is more that has to be done. We need to not just have the story of their past. We need more.

When working with past life memories, there is a energy signature or  an imprint that resides in our body. This  too must be transformed. The mind and beliefs that we have carried forward  must also be changed for lasting change to occur.

To integrate our past and past life memories requires that we work on multi-levels to remove t0 imprints from  our psyche and soma and consciousness.  It requires that we dive into the memory and find where it lives within us and how it is constructed, what beliefs animate it and keep it in place. Knowing this , feeling this sensing this allows for a release to take place that is both psychic and spiritual.

What the Mayan Elders are Saying About 2012 by Carlos Barrios

This is a long post that a client sent to me. It is so like what the energy, I work with, has been saying for decades about the changes that are afoot. Blessing to each of you.

What the Mayan Elders are Saying About 2012 by Carlos Barrios

Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan. Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating. Carlos along with his brother Gerardo studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge. Carlos found out quickly there were several conflicting interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, Sacred Books of ‘Chilam Balam’ and various ancient text. Carlos found some strong words for those who may have contributed to the confusion: Carlos Barrios: “Anthropologists visit the temple sites and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It’s just their imagination. Other People write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed.”
“We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth Changes.”He continues: “Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now.There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action.”

Carlos tells us: “The indigenous have the calendars and know how to accurately interpret it — not others. The Mayan
Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated. The Maya
understand 17 different calendars such as the Tzolk’in or Cholq’ij, some of them charting time accurately over a span of
more than ten million years. “All was predicted by the mathematical cycles of the Mayan calendars. — It will change –everything will change. Mayan Daykeepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator and the Earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.”

At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky
Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree
of Life, a tree remembered in all the world’s spiritual traditions. Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy
in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the Earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a
higher level of vibration. Carlos reminds us: “This process has already begun. Change is accelerating now and it will continue
to accelerate.

If the people of the Earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape without having destroyed too much of the Earth, we will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way.”
The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people
writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous
elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition. Carlos tells us: “The economy now is a fiction. The first five year
stretch of transition from August 1987 to August 1992 was the beginning of the destruction of the material world. We have
progressed ten years deeper into the transition phase by now, and many of the so-called sources of financial stability are in
fact hollow. The banks are weak. This is a delicate moment for them. They could crash globally, if we don’t pay attention. Now,
people are paying attention.”
The North and South Poles are both breaking up. The level ofthe water in the oceans is going to rise. But at the same time
land in the  ocean, especially near Cuba, is also going to rise. Carlos tells a story about the most recent Mayan New Year
ceremonies in Guatemala. He said that one respected Mam elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed
to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony. The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for
human beings to come together in support of life and light.”Right now each person and group is going his or her own way.
The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way. We live in a
world of polarity — day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a
balance.”

“Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy. They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012.””On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group’s understandings, are the key. There’s a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus.”
Carlos believes the dark side works to block unity through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are
working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. They like the energy of the old, declining Fourth World, the
materialism. They do not want it to change. They do not want unity. They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next
level.The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered. It’s too strong and clear for that, and
that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is
what leads to unity, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun. Carlos said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention
to a much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water have dominated various
epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun — that element is ‘ETHER’.

The dictionary defines Ether as a “hypothetical substance supposed to occupy all space, postulated to account for the
propagation of electromagnetic radiation through space.” Perhaps it could be defined as the “space between space”. I
would suggest it could be manifest as the alignment of charged particles from our solar system (Sun), and our galaxy (Milky
Way) surge. The Ether element represents spiritual energy. “The element of the Fifth Sun is celestial. Within the context of
Ether there can be a joining of the polarities. No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted unity. But right now the
realm of darkness is not interested in this. They are organized to block it. They seek to unbalance the Earth and its
environment so we will be unready for the alignment in 2012.” “We need to work together for peace, and balance with the
other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into
pursuing unity and unity now, to confront the other side and preserve life.”
“We are disturbed — we can’t play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history.” Carlos says: “The prophesied changes are going to happen, but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action
to respect the Earth.”

“Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It’s very important to be clear about who you are, and also about
your relation to the Earth. Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to
respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely — a lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to
what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so
you have mastery of your breath. Be clear. Follow a tradition with great roots. It is not important what tradition, your heart
will tell you, but it must have great roots.” “We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is
to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything — people, plants, animals.

This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ‘ether’ — the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.”
“One simple but effective prayer technique is to light white or baby-blue colored candles. Think of a moment in peace. Speak

your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders who have the power to make war or peace.” Carlos reminds us this is a crucially important moment for humanity and for Earth. Each person is important.
He said the elders have opened the doors so that other races can come to the Mayan world to receive the tradition. “The Maya
have long appreciated and respected that there are other colors, other races, and other spiritual systems. They know that
the destiny of the Mayan world is related to the destiny of the whole world.””The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA.

All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”

The Turning of the Year and the Heart of the Winter Solstice.

I was talking to my students this past wk end about this Iron Tiger year that we have been in and how this has been affecting us energetically. Here is what I have noticed.

Years ago I had the chance to interact with tiger cubs and a big female white tiger at Albuquerque zoo. Tigers are known to live much of their lives alone, except to mate.   The energy f these great cats is one of energy of isolation, patience and fierceness. These qualities have been a part of the energy dynamic this past year and we have seen it in action. Many of you may have felt isolated this past year. But there I good news!

On Feb 3 rd, Chinese New Year rings in and the year of the Iron Rabbit begins. Rabbits live in warrens are more social than tigers. My hope is that based on this energy change  we will have a year of more cooperation and consensus.

Isolation is necessary to discern who we are and what is important to us. We need that quiet self- reflection. But we are a human family and we need to also step back into relationship to someone other than ourselves.

I hope this new year reawakens our sense of community as we move out of isolation. Let us find common ground again. Cooperation is key, with this, we can get things done and moving forward again. The energy is posed to help us do this.

The element iron is about grief and sorrow, as well as, being a weapon of war. As we move thru this iron cycle over the next 8 years we are encouraged to process our grief and examine the martial nature within our society and within ourselves. Letting go of our wounds and finding peace within ourselves will reflect back into society, of which we are a part.

Let’s find our community this coming year—- like minded people who love and support us. My wish is for each of you is to discovery your larger human family and your place in it.

My husband and I have been reading  a set of  books by Marion Zimmer Bradley, which feature the goddess and the ancient ways of the goddess. As I gazed at the full moon lunar eclipse that happened on the solstice this came to mind. First, I reflected on the fact that an eclipse like this had not happening in 372 years ago. It was remarkable to think back to how our ancestors might have felt seeing an eclipse like this one. And also to rteflect on how the world has changed over the centuries.

Personally as the moon went dark on the first day of the return of the light, I felt that the goddess was also returning, not in the old ways, but that she was reintegrating for the first time in centuries with the solar force of the sun.

This marriage is both powerful and necessary as we balance the forces of the sun and moon, the masculine and feminine , the anima and the animus within ourselves.

This is a a time of reintegration and renewal.

Use this time wisely, vision and dream of wholeness, both personally and collectively. Send out light to those you love and to those who challenge you. Salute them all for they are your teachers !

Happy New Year and Namaste

Mercury went retrograde on Friday and will be Conjunct Pluto til the solstice.

A heads up as we move into this mercury retrograde… in Capricorn.

Pluto is sitting right with mercury til the winter solstice—–so intensity will be a watch word for this mercury retrograde.

Take it easy when you can  breath deep and exhale slowly. All the best and let me know how you are doing.

May your Holidays be Bright!

Wishing all of my online community joy this holiday season and may blessings and peace follow you into the new year— aloha Elizabeth


HOPI PROPHECIES

“We have been telling people that this is the Eleventh hour.   Now you must go back and tell them that this is the Hour.

And there are things to be considered:

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Are you in right relationship?

Where is your water?

Know your garden.

It is time to speak your truth.

Create your community.

Be good to each other.

And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast.

It is so great and so swift that there are those that will be afraid.

They will try to hold on to the shore.

They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination.

The Elders say you must let go of the shore,

push off into the middle of the river,

keep our eyes open and our heads above water.

See who is there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves.

For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves.

Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

You Have Lived Before — Healing Karmic Relationships and Symptoms

There is an intersection within your psyche where past and present meet. Memories from your past sometimes collide with your present and this intersection and  symptoms form and relationships ignite not only with the history of the moment but with the weight of the past as well.

It is beneficial, necessary and imperative to go back to the beginning to understand the present. To find the original cause in order to understand what affects you in the present.

The moment of death carries with it great consequence when you are reincarnated or take birth again and the thoughts, beliefs, hopes, dreams and emotions from that moment are driven into your dying consciousness and move forward within your consciousness, often igniting old problems, fears and even physical symptoms.

This is why past life work and healing can be so evocative and deeply healing. Bringing these emotions to light is a task we must undertake if we are going heal deeply and to be free, free of the karma from our past. This type of healing allows you to let go of your past in the most profound way—.freeing up immense energy that has been stored with your memories and entangles by your emotions.

Clearing the way, by bringing pieces of your story and yourself back together gives you a sense of who you truly are within time and space. It enlarges your sense of who you are and it humbles you and empowers you, simultaneously.

Unwinding the energies from the past allows you to understand and complete relationship issues and resolve symptoms phobias and fears once and for all. It’s as simple as that. Freedom, peace, renewed direction, joy, and a sense of who you truly are —- are the essential gifts of this work.

If you are experiencing symptoms and relationships difficulties that defy traditional therapies you are ripe for this work.  Go to http://www.healingorigins.com or http://www.memory in our bones .com for more details.

You can finally, untangle the emotions, unwind the bound up energy within you and  experience vitality and peace, as you unearth and release the ancient beliefs that drive your experience.

Know yourself, see the truth that lies within your being and solve the mysteries of your life!

Drinking Water Solutions

I know that many of you have been drinking bottled and vended water perhaps from a long time. Did you know that bottled water has no more regulations that tap water and that many of the bottled waters  are tap water that has been but thru a reverse osmosis system and stripped of the vital minerals that water conveys into our cells directly thru cellular osmosis?

I really think this is linked to the higher incidence of osteoporosis that we have been seeing recently, since we are not getting our minerals from the water when we drink bottles water.

We have found a solid carbon block filtration system that you should know about. It’s called Multi-Pure and they have been marketed for 30+yrs. They are certified by the National Sanitation Foundation and remove the volatile organic chemicals (VOC’s) that most systems don’t touch cause the molecules of the chemicals are too small to be filtered our of the water.

Plus for every gallon of water produced my most Reverse Osmosis systems you have to use 6 gallons of water is wasted. With Water being the new oil in this century we can’t afford to waste it.

Many VOC’s are endocrine disruptors and they cause all kinds of chronic problems, disease and cancers. Solid carbon is a tried and true means for removing chemicals from your water because Multi-pure solid block removes to .5 sub microns

Recently Multi Pure  came out with a new system that is affordable to everyone. They make it really easy to purchace a superior water system.Just call or email me and I can set you up.

You will taste the difference, and you will save money and not have all the waste and plastic bottles that leach chemicals into your water.  My vet when he examines my 17.5 yr old Siamese cat  said her kidneys looked like a cat 1/2 her age and bought a unit for his vet clinic right there and then. Our cats, dog and plants thrive like we do.

If you contact me I can set you up with a great system that will save you money  and help safe the planet from plastic bottles. 415 435-8015 or email me thru this blog.

PS.  Never drink distilled water the boiling process of the distillation actually increases the volatility of the chemicals in the water and the list of chemicals in municipal water is huge!

Hope and Possibility 2012 & Beyond

I was reading for someone recently who was asking about what to expect with 2012.

The following came through.

We are in a time of deep and abiding change and while it appears that we are fractured and broken at this time, this is only temporary. We are in a confluence of energies at this time that is a culmination of centuries of conflict and strife and while the old dies away, it may kick and scream in death throes.

We are moving towards a time of greater harmony and light. But we have to pass through the eye of the needle.  There will be a unifying event, which will show us beyond a doubt that we are one people, one planet, one humanity. This event will  be so alien to us it will both shock and awaken us and as a result our world and consciousness will be forever changed.

What will come out of this is a new form of governance -world wide that will be more inclusive and accepting. Old enemies will see each other in a new light and lay down their arms. Humanity will see itself as connected at long last.

We will have three hurdles in the coming years (2008-2024) of which we have experienced the first when the markets and business sectors faltered and fell. During this phase of time governments, business, banking and the structures we have grown up with will be altered in deep and transformative ways.

After the earthquake of 1989 in the  SF Bay Area, while reading in Colorado at an yearly event, I remember  many people being concerned that the predicted earth changes were upon us. Please understand that the earth is a evolving and conscious being and she is both wise and ancient.

She would never harm the people who reside here, but Pluto is the lord of death and transformation and there may be many who decide not to stay. Remember we are her ( the earths) heart and her emotional expression, so each of us has the opportunity to transform our deep emotional pain that Pluto will dredge up for us, so we can see it in the light of day. This is the gift of this time.

Historically the last time Pluto was in Capricorn was when this young nation was forming. Like then, freedom, liberty and  revolution will be apart of this transition and there may be energies that will impinge upon our liberties and freedom but then as now truth will win out. Pluto will have it no other way.

What Really Divides Us? An Opportunity!

You may not know this, but I am a daughter of the American revolution. My family and ancestors fought for freedom, freedom of religion, freedom from taxation without representation and we fought for our right to express ourselves freely and be happy.  Abagail Adams was a Smith and Martha Washington’s sister married a Bassett. Both are my family names.

You might be wondering why  am I writing about this odd bit of personal history when I usually write about healing and transformational change.

First, I want to share that Pluto is in Capricorn, many of you may know this but did you know that the  last time Pluto was in Capricorn ( that rules government and business) was during the founding of this country and the American revolution.

Like now, there were  basically 2 distinct party lines of thought, one for a centralized government ( Hamilton and Adams)  and the other for more states rights (Jefferson & Madison). Then like now these forces pulled at each other in bitter and divisive infights that nearly destroyed our  fledgling democracy.

What is so frustrating for me is that we are doing it all over again. I realize that people are reactionary and in reactive states much of the time but we have a opportunity to change this. To move from reaction to response!

Decades ago, when I taught as a substitute teacher even my kindergarteners knew how to cooperate and get along better than the factionalized wings of  political groups we see expousing  their truth on talk shows and in the halls of government. Why all the hate when what we need is cooperation.

So let”s take this opportunity and say no to  extremes, to the tea party movement  (who I know that my ancestors would rolling in their graves  to hear this name used this way ) and to the factionalism that they preach and that is eroding any political goodwill and hope we once possessed.

We have an opportunity to move to another level, to a higher octave of this Pluto in Capricorn energy that is so relevant right now. We can rise above this kind of  divisive politics.

We must remember our commonality.

This commonality is key. We are all human beings, first. We all suffer and wish to be happy. This is what links us all  together!

We can all practice more openness and compassion and reach out our hands to one another in kindness instead of anger. I am not saying that we have to deny that we are mad as hell about what is going on in the world  but we have to at least try to soften our hearts and temper our anger with intelligence and open the conversation beyond the sound of our own voice.

This is where we have gone wrong I’m afraid…. we are not talking to each other we’re just flinging shit at each other, which accomplishes nothing. As the political season ramps up ask yourself , can I hold the and instead of the or in my heart? Can both positions exist simultaneously? My hope is yes . So the dialogue can begin not just sound bites ( that the masses latch onto ) but real discussion.

So I want everyone to take a deep breath, to move out of reaction and into a place of equanimity because if we don’t start matters will only get worse. I do not want to lose this precious democracy.

Let’s embrace our diversity and find a new path to move forward on. Please, please, please.

PS

Pluto in Capricorn will strip down and expose all forms of corruption and abuse of power. It is the nature of Pluto to illuminate the shadow and Pluto will be in Capricorn  that rules the sector of business, government, banking and finance. we have already seen this. And we have a choice and opportunity at this time. Government and politics will change during this process. We can move towards a new wholism like never before and heal this realm where there has been so much  tit for tat for way too long.  Pluto is fierce and it is relentless but it wants truth above all things.
