The Infinite Transition

Heal your life, step into your power, and live your truth.

Be Here, Now!

“There is only now. And look! How rich we are in it.” ~ Vanna Bonta, Shades Of The World

You are here. You are reading this but are you really here? Is your mind wondering while reading this? Are you trying to predict what you’re about to read next? Are you thinking about how you will form it in the context of what you already know? For many people, this is so habitual, it’s become an unconscious reaction. They’re always referencing what they know into new information presented. Many people spend their lives dwelling on the past or living in the future. In doing so, they miss so many great things right in front of them. In my own journey, learning how to get present was a major step forward in my healing that later showed up everywhere else in my life.

Months ago, I began salsa dancing after attending a friend’s birthday party. She’s heavily involved in the salsa scene and there were a lot of dancers at her party. It had been 10 years since I last danced and I mainly forgot everything, save a few steps. I did a minimal amount of dancing at the party. I was invited to a salsa social later that month where I was reintroduced to the basic steps and even learned some new ones. After attending another salsa social, I started going out regular nights around town where I got more experience and became a better lead (good leaders make better dancers). I even took a couple lessons to help me with my leading which completely changed everything. Along the way of being a salsa dancer, the awareness of presence showed up. Because salsa dancing is a partner dance, it works best with both people are engaged. I found that you can’t be a good lead and not be present with you partner. There will never be a good dance without both people present. I learned a lot of things from salsa, this being one.

Being present is one of the most important things you can do in your life. Whenever I coach people, one of the very first things I do is get them to get present to what’s going on in their life now. Many people want to focus on things that happened in their past. While that may have an effect on what’s going on, it’s important to know how you feel here and now. Once I know where they are, I can begin to walk them through their transition. People get stuck in the old belief patterns and tend to get stuck in the past or future. It’s no wonder you have people who ramble on about their “glory days” or have destination addictions. You can’t solve problems living in the past. Our subconscious mind is designed to keep us safe. When we’re present, we feel all sorts of new emotions that leave us feeling vulnerable. Once we get present to those feelings, we can clear the beliefs around them to allow us to truly be with ourselves wholly. When we are truly present, we can create with the highest and best energy and intention. Books like Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now and Spencer Johnson’s The Present were written to get people to become aware of what happens when you’re present in your daily life. I recommend both books.

Much like my journey with salsa dancing, you can learn to be present in every area of your life. Salsa actually taught me how to be present and what being present really meant. That lesson can taken and applied anywhere in your life. What would that look like in your career or business? Your relationships? This is where you get to be the creator of your own like. Be here, now! Enjoy what’s in front of you. It’s worth it.

Healing From The Root

“Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.” ~ Tori Amos

Healing is a process. It requires us to look at the areas of our lives we’ve neglected for years. Before we started on our spiritual/healing journeys, we learned to cover up our issues so we wouldn’t have to deal with them,. Unfortunately, they would come back around for us to deal with them again, so we bandage them up once more. Of course, that bandage was only temporary so the problem comes back yet again. This is a vicious cycle that many go through to solve problems in their lives.

It would be safe to say that most people around the world live in a symptomatic society. We like to look at the symptoms of problems and cure those. For example, you may see a number of commercials promoting the newest weight loss pill and their “success” stories. These companies know that people are desperate to lose weight and look good so they construct an ad that promotes that look and feeling. What people are buying is a temporary fix that will eventually fail and they’ll gain weight again. Instead of buying a quick fix pill, the ideal solution would be to evaluate what their body really needs, adjust their diet, exercise and have a total lifestyle change. This takes work which a lot of people don’t want to do. While the pill is more attractive, the lifestyle change would truly solve their problems and probably give them the optimal health they’re really looking for. This is a common problem for people when they go through healing. Even the best of us get caught up in this . You can not fix your problems by resolving surface issues in your life. The true transformation comes from healing the root cause of your issue(s).

Getting to the core of our issues liberates us from the pain and burden of our problem(s) and keeps them from coming back. It also opens the doors to solutions that lead us to become more of our authentic self, the one that works in our highest and best way. In order to do that, we must take a long look in the mirror and get real with ourselves. It’s not easy and can be painful, although, it doesn’t have to be. When I first started my journey, I was scared out of my mind to look at myself but either I did it or I didn’t heal. It’s been a long time since then and I’m still healing but it gets easier to do some days. If you really want to resolve any major issues in your life, you must start with finding the core cause of it. Once you clear that out, then you can move forward.

This process isn’t always easy and it can get very emotional, even painful but keep going. In the beginning it can be overwhelming and that’s ok. There are many different paths you can take through the healing process. While some paths get you there faster, the most important thing is that you get there. Then again, healing is not a destination, it is a journey.

Doors; Opening And Closing

img_2526_2

 

“Every man is a door; when the door is closed, just search for the key gently! Remember that every door has a key!” ~ Mehmet Murat ildan

As things begin, they also end. This isn’t just reserved to life and death but all things. The ebb and flow of the Universe. Doors are always opening and closing in our life. While in most cases it’s usually pretty straight forward, doesn’t mean it’s always easy to accept or comprehend. A door that’s opened or closed can bring about some terrible things or some great things. I believe that the doors that are opened by us, through one format or another, are benefiting us in some way. But why would the Divine life force that’s all about Love allow us to open a doorway to a painful experience, or close a door that’s benefiting us? Maybe there’s something we’re missing.

In my own life very recently, I’ve had a few doors shifting. From completing relationships with people and business partners, client shifts to coaching. Changes have shown up in various ways and through various sources. Early on in the door carousel, I took a lot of things personally. I use to ask questions like, “Did I cause this? What am I doing wrong? Why is this happening to me?” Even with all my spiritual teachings, I found myself out of alignment with love. Once I began to get centered in my own heart, I began to look at these experiences very differently.

Along our spiritual journey (and possibly before), we were taught by someone that life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. All of our experiences teach us lessons which brings us closer to our divine purpose. The more heart-centered and aligned with love we are, the easier it is to hear those messages. When doors began to shift on me in my new energy, I began to ask a different question.

What am I learning from this?

Everyone has something to learn from each experience. For example, a person in a relationship with an energy vampire is much easier to let go of. It may teach them to nurture their self. I find that people who allow others to suck them dry tend not to nurture themselves. Once they begin to nurture themselves, they begin to heal and experience another shift and more lessons to learn. With each healing, more shifts occur and new doors become available to them. Some tempt them to go back to their old ways while others, help them grow toward their full potential. At that point, it’s a choice of what they really want in their life.

Once I began to ask that question, I was able to get divine insight, learn the lessons and raise my energy. It allowed me to move forward in my life much easier than before. Taking action wasn’t as big of a deal as before.  It was important in asking that question that I was kind to myself and looked for the positive lesson, as there’s always a positive lesson in each experience. While not all doors are meant to be opened, even they teach valuable lessons. Learning how to trust your intuition will help you know which doors to open and leave closed.

Much like quote, all experiences are doors. Not all doors are locked but even those that are have a key. Good news is, you already have it!

Genuinely Authentic; The Journey To Becoming Heart-Centered

2235134

 

“I was dead, then alive. Weeping, then laughing. The power of love came into me, and I became fierce like a lion, then tender like the evening star.”
~ Rumi

Not long ago, I made a public declaration to move my life forward. I didn’t know how I was going to do it or, even what that looked like. Only that I didn’t want to stay in the space that I was. I set a timeline for it to happen over a period of 7 weeks. Originally, it was for a side project that I was working on which I began to put time in to with with an accountability partner. That plan eventually overlapped into a ThetaHealing® certification course called Intuitive Anatomy, which would ultimately take over all of my time. The course, was designed to be 3 weeks long, was condensed into a 15 day intensive… and intense it was.

The course is designed to look at beliefs around the body systems. It’s amazing what you find in your own body and what contributes to physical illness. Going into IA, it was a fun. About 3 days in, the triggers started and they got bigger and bigger. I found myself over a period of 15 days having massive breakdowns and breakthroughs. I can’t remember the last time I cried that heavily and that much. With each breakthrough, I found myself releasing scores of old beliefs and programs that held me back from so many things. Each time, I felt lighter and a little more energetic. I couldn’t stop in the middle, although, there was a point I almost quit because it was that intense. At the end of the 15 days, I came out a completely different to the point where I wouldn’t have recognize the person that came in.

Throughout the entire course, I worked on so many beliefs. Some of the beliefs were around things like being exposed as a fraud, lying and cheating to survive, integrity, authenticity, genuine, heart-centered, allowing love in, old anger, guilt, and many others. You can imagine how releasing many of these deep issues would feel so heavy. Throughout all of this, the one thing that was never on my mind was my side project. After keeping some active records for a few weeks and sending them to my partner, I completely stopped as I got deeper into IA. About halfway through the class, I put that project on hold. I’d been working on this project for 2 years and never really felt totally connected with it. I was not being genuine or authentic, nor was I passionate about it. It was one of the few times that I had truly listened to my heart and made a decision based on my intuition. I was learning in that moment what being heart-centered really was. Being in that space when you are authentically you. No masks, no fronts, armor, tricks or games. A genuine person, oozing with unconditional love, connected with all that is.

I remember when I woke up the morning of the last day and I knew everything was different. The colors were brighter, the sounds were crisper, everything sang. It was in that moment that I knew I had shifted into that heart-centered space. Once I stepped into my heart center,  I wanted to feel like that everyday. I started to be more specific about people I kept in my life, who I spent the most time around, who I did business with, and so forth. I also began de-committing to a lot of activities that no longer served me in the highest and best way. The more space I cleared out, the more I created to allow new supportive things to enter, which they did. Opportunities flowed and people showed up exactly as I needed them. The Universe provided and all I did was step into what was given to me. What was best is I knew everything that came to me I could be authentic with and be my genuine self. I no longer needed the mask.

Of all the great memories I’ve created since then, there’s one that stood out to me the most. One the second to last day of class, we did an exercise where we looked into each other’s eyes and felt pure unconditional love. When I got to this one person, their love was so intense that I got extremely emotional that I began to breakdown and cry. This person embraced me as I broke down and cried for a few minutes. After I stopped crying, they said to me, “welcome home.” I knew in that moment, I had truly shifted.

I went into a certification course to further my understand of ThetaHealing® and came out in complete flow of the Universe. I released so much from myself which allowed me to live as my most genuine and authentic self. I knew there was a reason I got into Theta. It just took me to get out of my own way to see it and all the other miracles that were right in front of me all along. When you release so much that you’ve held on to for so long, so much that no longer serves you, you can finally experience freedom. I think in that class I finally understood what freedom really is. The best part is that I get the share it with everyone!

There’s nothing better than being genuinely authentic!
