Ascension is not Linear

I’m being reminded that the process of ascension/integration is not linear, and we cannot predict the direction it will take. If your soul has committed to the process, trust the flow. (And if you’re alive, it has). It may be that as you reached another point of integration, old patterns were thrown up you thought you’d already dealt with, and it felt like they derailed the whole thing. In truth, your higher self is facilitating a clearing away of whatever is impeding your capacity to step fully into this particular newness. It has been my firm assertion from the beginning that the way to unity and Oneness is THROUGH duality, not away from it, and this speaks directly to that. It can sometimes feel like Continue reading Ascension is not Linear

Asking with Love

I had an insight last night that I wanted to share. It was about asking, and receiving. I could feel a difference in myself over the past few days and then it was suddenly clear. When you ask from a state of constriction (fear, lack or shame, for instance) your capacity to receive is impeded. The act of asking feels aligned with the __fear, shame, or lack___ which then increases THAT vibration in your being, which then creates further constriction. When instead, you ask from a place of deep self love and self-respect, you receive from a place of power. This is the embodied type of power that comes from deep within, from knowing and accepting your divine self at a deep level. You feel Continue reading Asking with Love

How to Untangle Attachments

* Also see the post entitled ‘Defining Attachment,’ which explores varying levels of attachment, including enmeshment and entanglement * Releasing attachments to old experiences can be challenging. Especially so when they’ve left you feeling hurt, betrayed or otherwise unsettled. Perhaps you felt like you built your life around the thing, person or situation that’s no longer in your life, and the attachment is the only residual tie to the deep love you experienced. It’s as if the loyalty to your pain is a distorted way of expressing the love you felt. (This brings to mind the song ‘Landslide‘ by Fleetwood Mac). This goes deeper than simply missing someone, which is a fleeting feeling of nostalgia which arises and leaves you with a sense of warmth Continue reading How to Untangle Attachments

Defining Attachment

Varying levels and forms of attachment differ by degree of emotional investment. There is bonding, a natural and healthy form of attachment, which usually begins with the bond between parents and children. Then there is attachment, a more complex connection between a person and a situation or another person. This can be both healthy and unhealthy depending on the emotional investment. There’s also entanglement, or enmeshment, which happens in dysfunctional and abusive relationships, those rooted in trauma bonding structures. It’s natural to become attached to people, things and situations that have become a part of your life in some way. We all have the need for emotional connections and the desire to feel supported and seen. The challenge begins when the attachments become unhealthy; for Continue reading Defining Attachment

An Ode to your Magical Body

Your magical body is the home of your soul, the conduit you chose to explore this thing called life. It’s a masterpiece! It may not feel immediately easy to access body-love when you wake up every day and see the fifteen pounds that weren’t there last year, or the scars and stretch marks that ‘mar’ your skin. How can you love your body when the images you see every day portray a version of beauty that doesn’t describe your unique fabulousness? It may feel challenging or even impossible to reach a state of love for your body if you’ve experienced shame, abuse or bullying for the way you look or move. So, what’s the best advice I can give? Start where you are. Your body Continue reading An Ode to your Magical Body
