21 DAY MEDITATION CHALLENGE FROM THE CHOPRA CENTRE

If you have never meditated and would like to try, then here’s your chance. The Chopra centre is offering a free 21 day meditating challenge. This is an excellent way to commit 21 days of your life to see how meditating could change you and your life.

The hardest part of meditating can be simply setting a time aside for it. So, find a time that suits you best, perhaps first thing in the morning or just before bed. Find a quiet, comfortable space in your home, where it’s not too hot or cold and before you start make sure there will be no unwanted distractions, such as a phone ringing, a child asking for you, a rumbling stomach from hunger, or likewise, an overly full, digesting tummy. Others will say different, but I find it best to meditate sat up, with the spine erect (a slumped chest affects the breathing), when lying down it is too easy to fall asleep and although sleep is very beneficial, we’re trying to still and quieten our mind and it can take some effort to do. The mind is like a monkey and when you try to still it it will start to jump from one thought to the next trying to distract you. With patience and persistence you will eventually get to train and quieten the monkey but if you fall asleep before you have had chance then you will miss that opportunity.

The challenge begins on Monday, July 16, 2012. (All meditations are available for 7 days after they are originally posted, so you could start your challenge up to the 22nd July). The Free to Love 21-Day Meditation Challenge will feature all new guided meditations led by Deepak Chopra and other gifted teachers from the Chopra Center family.  The aim is to explore the subject of love and discover freedom from the past, experience profound healing and begin to live from a state of  unbounded love for life, ourselves, and the world.

WORLD LIBERATION DAY ~ 5-5-2012 ~ GLOBAL MEDITATION

MAKE THIS VIRAL: WORLD LIBERATION DAY ~ 5-5-2012 ~

Whilst browsing on-line I came across this post for a global meditation, planned for this weekend’s full moon, on Laura Bruno’s Blog. I believe it’s really important to get this out there. So if you’re reading this before 5/5/12 please pass it on. It’s a chance for us to take action and unite during this collective meditation in pursuit of our quest for evolution… without having to leave the comfort of our own home…

Make this viral!

WORLD LIBERATION DAY ~ 5-5-2012 ~

It is time to take action! It is time to take the destiny of our world in our own hands. Therefore we will meet in groups large and small, as individuals and couples, at the exact time of full moon this May. Millions of us will gather and visualize the liberation of our planet from the tyranny of the central bankers so that for the first time in our history we will have the chance to create our own destiny as free citizens of the Earth.

There is a plan, conceived by positive people in the military, supported by civil authority, to arrest the members of the banking Cabal for their crimes against humanity. Our visualization will support this plan, so that it manifests as soon as possible, as non-violently and smoothly as possible. We will support brave heroes that will carry out this plan. Something like this has never happened on this planet before. This is our chance to be a part of it!

Our mass effort on this day will be the trigger that will activate the plan so that it may come to its fruition. Our visualization on that day is our declaration of freedom and independence. Make this viral! Share it worldwide.

We will all be doing this visualization at the same time, the moment of full moon, which comes this May 5th/6th. Exact times for different time zones are:

  • 8:30 pm PDT May 5th (Los Angeles)
  • 9:30 pm MDT May 5th (Denver)
  • 10:30 pm CDT May 5th (Houston)
  • 11.30 pm EDT May 5th (New York)
  • 4:30 am BST May 6th (London)
  • 5:30 am CEST May 6th (Paris)
  • 11:30 am CST May 6th (Beijing)
  • 12:30 pm JST May 6th (Tokyo)
  • 1:30 pm AEST May 6th (Sydney)

(Of course, if you can’t do it exactly at this time, any time as close as possible will help too).

Instructions

1. Relax your mind and body by watching your breath for a few minutes.

2. Visualize civil authority arresting central banking criminals such as Rothschilds and Rockefellers, and other members of this Cabal such as Henry Kissinger, etc. Visualize this process taking place worldwide peacefully and smoothly. Visualize the world finally being free from financial slavery, free from all evil dictators and corrupt politicians.

3. Visualize bright new future for humanity, with new and fair financial system put into place, with all debts canceled, prosperity funds for humanitarian projects released, advanced technologies introduced, ecosystem healed and human beings finally being free from all oppression.

A Note to Empaths

I decided to write this short post for all you Empaths out there suffering and struggling with all these crazy, painful, bi-polar emotions, day-in, day-out. It’s been tough for us in recent months because not only have we got our own stuff coming up (made all the worse by solar activity), but we’ve also got all the emotional pain coming from outside of us, from family, neighbours, colleagues etc, which has also intensified and there is, seemingly, no escaping it. It’s certainly not an easy time to be an Empath.

At this time, you maybe experiencing many more physical maladies than usual, because you are picking up and absorbing them unintentionally, from those you spend time with or near. And because so many more people are suffering with different ascension/solar related symptoms, emotionally and physically, it’s double whammy for us. The other week I spent a day with a close friend who had sore, swollen eyelids. Guess what I got the very next day after being with her? Yes, sore, swollen eyelids, whilst my friend’s own swollen eyelids, quickly healed.

It can be difficult to tell what emotional/physical symptoms belongs to us and what doesn’t because we are constantly being bombarded from all directions. It is, however, still easy for us to gauge how bad another is feeling, especially when we enter their energy field, because we will immediately pick up on their pain body. It can make being round those we love difficult, especially if they are suffering. And it is so easy for us to interpret their pain as ours, which can, in turn, set off a whole host of other bad feelings within.You might be at a stage where you’re not particularly liking yourself, and that will be because you are identifying with all the stuff coming up/in, emotional-wise, and taking it on as either being part of your personality or as your own. And it would be easy for me to say, ‘It’s not yours, don’t take it on board.’ But as I know on some days it is almost impossible not to, I won’t say it.

So, this post is just a note to say you’re not on your own in this seemingly never-ending onslaught.  Each day will pose a new challenge for us, in some which way. Keep trying different remedies and see what helps (especially salt remedies) in lifting the dark, incoming energy. If an Empath were to go to the doctors in these ‘trying times’ we would surely be diagnosed with some kind of depressive illness, but at least we know the truth!

There is no way we would be going through all this stuff if it wasn’t for a reason…a very good reason. And if screaming into a cushion doesn’t help get some of the debris out, try smiling… because if nothing else, it will make you look (and hopefully feel) happier!

11th November 2011

RuskaOoh, when I woke this morning the energies felt very special. The best way I can describe them is how I used to feel when I was a little girl and I would wake up on my birthday morning, knowing I had a magical day ahead. I’m sure most would remember how that felt. Also I’ve got more energy than usual (which is saying a lot for me as I’ve never been a morning person, energetically). And joyful, I feel more joyful, lighter and blissful… I just hope this is a keeper!

I wasn’t planning on doing a post today, thought I’d leave it till tomorrow, but I think I’ll do updates throughout the day to see what unfolds.

It is my intention to do a meditation at 11am, as I’m sure is the intention of many others around the globe. I will update after that. But for now it’s time for my morning yoga practice. (My meditation was blissful although nothing more notable than that.)

Well, it’s now 8 hours later and it has to be said, this day has certainly been different energetically. I’ve had déjà vu but not in the sense of remembering a scene or situation, more emotionally. At certain times today I’ve had overwhelming feelings that took me back to childhood. Good feelings of excitement and newness. Let’s hope this is due to the new, positive energies that have poured into the planet since last night. It’s not been continuous, the feelings or emotions have come in waves.

Whilst out walking earlier I noticed the vibrant, autumn colours seemed so much brighter than normal. The shades, varying from dark, golden sand to russet red and the trees, that were teaming with colourful winter berries and fruits was a contrast of which I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before. Nature at her finest.

And is it me or have people seemed happier today? We’ve certainly got a reason to be happy, if these feel-good frequencies are anything to go by… But then, I guess only time will tell. Anyone whose been on the ascension roller-coaster with me will be familiar with the constant, unpredictable ups and downs. How we think we’ve shifted up a gear and finally put all the crap behind us, only to find out we were wrong. But hey, isn’t there a saying that ‘without the bad the good aint so good’? Well, it’s true!

To all of you empaths, star-seeds, indigo’s and light-workers out there, may 11/11/11 be the day we finally free ourselves from our restraints and step into the new, wonderful world that’s been waiting for us…

The Eve of Change

So here we are on the eve of 11/11/11 wondering what tomorrow will bring. For those of us who are sensitive, there has still been lots of ascension symptoms to deal with of late. The most prominent being lethargy or chronic fatigue. Then there’s the strange things happening during sleep-time. Could perhaps, our dreams be trying to tell us something?

Are you making simple mistakes and feel like your brain is made from candy floss? Or do you have incredible muscle weakness and stiff bones…? Join the club. Many of you will, no doubt, have a range of symptoms not listed here but whatever maladies you maybe suffering you can guarantee our rational mind’s will try to find a reason for these ailments, sending us out to find remedies or a cure. In some cases, holistic treatments, extra vitamins or a tonic may help, but as has always been the case with ascension symptoms, they will leave in their own time.

Our pets are feeling them too. Have you noticed your furry friend needing more sleep than normal? Or being slow to get up in the morning? I guess it’s not too difficult for our pets though, for them to sleep all day is no big deal… it would be great if we could say the same.

The date 11/11/11 is holding hope for many that it will see an end to our ascension symptoms and allow us to come into realization of what our future paths will hold. Many of us have lived in the void for too long, feeling like we’re floating without direction. It has taken much faith on our parts to keep going, but we have because we believe what we’ve endured has been for a purpose. It’s been a lonely path, with many of us having no one to talk to about what we’ve experienced or what we believe is really going on… and it’s not for want of trying. But then, this was our journey, our own unique experience through life.

As I wrote in my last post I finally understand how privileged we’ve been to have had lived in these amazing times and have had this life experience. We’ve been be able to live half in and half out of the 3D world, having a knowing that others didn’t. We’ve weathered much and seen the full spectrum of the rainbow and now, as we step over the next threshold, it’s time to receive our ‘pots of gold’.

How will you spend your 11th day? Working? In prayer or meditation? At an organised gathering? I hope that however you chose to spend your day and evening you will do it in celebration. Celebration of what is over and what is to come. And as I’ve said before, even though what we’ve been through has been tough, very, very tough, many of you would not wish to change one  single aspect of you life since your awakening, whether that be 10 days, 10 months or 10 years ago. Happy 11/11/11.

Stepping into the New

When I woke this morning to the usual dizziness, light-headedness and internal heat, I got to wondering when these ascension symptoms, that we’ve all been enduring, will end. Over the years there have been so many, I couldn’t even begin to list them here. If I had been unaware of ascension and gone to the doctors with my many ailments I could have been diagnosed with anything from bi-polar to hypochondria. I can’t imagine what kinds of medication I’d have been given, if it hadn’t been for the information available on the internet and in books regarding to the ascension and it’s effects on us physically and mentally.

The symptoms have been likened to those women suffer in the peri-menopausal stages and if men hadn’t been suffering with the same, I’m sure that’s what they would have been attributed to. So when the transition is complete and we finally, fully, arrive in our new and permanent spaces, the symptoms will stop. Just like when a woman has passed through the menopause, all her menopausal ailments end.

We have been so lucky to have been privy to what is really happening to us and our world. I have a dear friend who is suffering greatly with the same afflictions as me, but as her mind is still firmly planted in 3D she fears she’s either losing her marbles or having an early menopause. I have tried the gentle nudges and advising her as to what’s really going on, to no avail. She will awaken when she’s ready.

I used to get frustrated with my family and friends  that they would not listen to me or see what is really happening in life. I now understand it was not their path to awaken, they are still having their 3D experiences for their own growth and development and when the time is right it will happen for them. No, one, person was responsible for my awakening, I always had an interest in the esoteric and searched out all the answers for myself. Everything gradually unfolded, step by step, piece by piece and it will be the same for others when they are triggered they will find their own answers, although I would imagine it will happen over weeks and months as opposed to years.

As we step into our new realities I realise what a magical, albeit frustrating, experience it’s been and looking back I wouldn’t change a single experience. And even though there have been some dark, dark times, I feel so fortunate to have been able to participate in this game of ascending life!

A New Beginning, Release of Fear… and the Birds

Happy New ?????

Phew! What a ride… So here we are on the other side of the Mayan calendar, 29th October 2011 and how does it feel for me? Well, this week has been strange… to say the least. Every day has presented a new challenge, energetically, emotionally and physically. One day I could not even peel myself off the sofa to visit the bathroom.  Another day I was consumed with vexed, angst emotions. I’ve felt dizzy most days (still have it now), had headaches and yesterday (28th) everything was an effort and I just felt… well, spaced out… coincidence…? Nah, I don’t believe in coincidences. I was clearly feeling the shift of our transition into the next reality, as I would imagine many others were experiencing also.

So, what does it mean for us now? Where do we go from here? We still seem to be residing in 3D (although I haven’t actually left the house today, there could be a lot of changes out there for me to see, ha!) but just on the cusp. I know many are expecting to see big changes on 11/11/11, and maybe on that day there will be, it could be then that we step into the fourth dimension. I, however, was really hoping for a big sign yesterday or today, Perhaps like a day of darkness or silver feathers falling from above, to let us all know we’ve got through the worst and the only way is up from here. I guess I wanted the big sign, not just for me but for all those who haven’t yet awoken and are still slaves to the system. Even if just to give them hope because, let’s face it, in the old world things are looking very bleak indeed.

One, amazing, thing I have noticed within myself of late is that the fears, I’ve carried most of my life, have been dissipating. I’ve always been a very fearful person (it’s only in recent years I could sleep without a light on and I’m 41), but I can now see many of those irrational fears have lifted. Its funny, now I’m at this stage of  release, I can understand how the fear has served me, in allowing me to grow and develop. In facing my many trepidations, I stepped out of my comfort zone and into the unknown and it was in this place that I felt truly alive and learnt most about myself. I can say from experience, it’s only when we face the darkness within, that we release it. “Without risk there’s no reward.” I have lived it and know it to be true.

I believe we have been given more opportunities to face our fears, in the many challenges that have come our way, so we could finally expel them. This year, everyone, but everyone has experienced turmoil in their lives, such as, losing homes, jobs, money, partners, health et cetera. When it happens to us, when we face any one of these realities of loss and get through the initial shock of it, we find out that it’s ok, we will still survive and in losing something, a space is opened for something bigger and better to come into our lives. As long as we know and really believe these harsh times are temporary and transient, it makes the transitions much smoother. The worst pain comes from the fear and resistance to change rather than the change itself.

I am excited and positive about what’s to come. I just hope I’m not missing much of the journey by focusing on the destination (remember as a child saying, ‘Are we nearly there yet?) because there’s so much for us to experience and learn en route. I know whatever happens in our futures’ it will be awesome, it is awesome. Our reality is just our perception of it…

Update

After posting this earlier I went out for a walk with my dog and it was whilst walking that I realised I did indeed get a sign to mark the beginning of a new era and that sign came in the form of a bird, or should I say birds. For you to understand the meaning of this I will have to go back a few months to an experience I had in early summer: One evening I woke in the middle of the night to see the silhouette of a bird’s head over my husband’s head. It was white and misty and the beak was huge, making it impossible to be anything but a bird. Yes, I thought it was strange and couldn’t understand the meaning behind it, I was just stuck with the big question, why? To my delight that question would be answered the very next day.

Whilst sitting in the garden, the next day,  reading, I was distracted and drawn to all the birds fluttering around and playing in my garden. I was captivated by them and amazed at their synchronistic movements, fluttering into flight and changing direction at exactly the same moment or playfully ducking and diving from bush to bush. It was whilst engrossed by their beauty and movement that I remembered the misty bird head covering my husband’s and I suddenly wondered whether birds could be playing a paramount part in this shift. So I said to myself, ‘If the birds are playing a part there will be something about it in this book’. I continued to read (I had just started reading Karen Bishop’s latest book about the end of times, the shift and rebirth), when a couple of pages in, Karen wrote about a bird that had nested in her garden and how it had played a huge part in her transformation. I can’t remember her exact words but it went on to say that birds play a huge part in the shift… and that was all the confirmation I needed.

You maybe wondering where this is leading, well, as I said earlier in the post, I really wanted to see a sign to confirm the end of the old world and the birth of our new beginning and, even though I didn’t see it at the time, I got it twice today. I woke this morning to a loud fluttering. As I came round I realised there was a bird in my bedroom, trying to get out of the blinds. How did it get in? was one question on my mind and why? In all my life I don’t think I’ve ever come across a bird trapped in my home. I quietly let it out and went about my day. Later on it happened again, but this time the bird was trapped under the roof outside, at the back of the house. My husband called me to tell me he could hear a bird fluttering its wings. He climbed out on the extension, where the noise was coming from, only to see a bird’s head sticking out of a loose panel. He pulled it down and the bird flew out and over to a tree where it perched itself and stared back at us. I momentarily glanced away and when I looked back it had disappeared.

So, there was my sign, the birds being trapped and then freed and I wasn’t just given the sign once, I was given it twice as confirmation that we have stepped over the threshold into the New World… Hurray!

Too Long

I’ve not been here for a while. It’s been 3 months since my last post. And why’s that…? Can’t say I’ve got a reason, other than the highs and lows of life getting in the way.

Things have been changing so rapidly of late. When I just glimpsed back over my posts and info I’ve put on this blog, it all seems so dated (especially to the type of person who may have been drawn to this kind of information), and it’s only been 3 months… Phew! I’m not sure what I will do with the old pages. Maybe I’ll put them in one file, titled ‘The Old World’. But one thing I know is: I will be doing some rearranging on here. Putting on new information for a new way of living.

So, there it is: a very short post for me today. I’ll be back soon to do some updating.

Ciao for now.

It’s True! The Truth will Set you Free as an Empath!

Finding the truth of who you really are as an Empath is one of the hardest things you will face whilst on this path of awakening.

If you are struggling with the current shift happening in the world, or with being an Empath, I guarantee, one of the reasons is you are not facing your personal truth.

The person you see in the mirror is an accumulation of many fear-based emotions, untruths, rejections and painful events, built up from your personal history.

Ever heard the saying, ‘We’re not really upset about what we think we’re upset about?’ It means we’re not facing the true cause of our pain.

Finding your truth is not an overnight process. It can take years. At least it took me years and I’m still uncovering new stuff all the time.

It was part of my journey to go the long way round, perhaps, so I could share the information here.

So how did I make the discovery? That the truth really will set you free…? Through journaling.

When I was at my lowest ebb (part of my resistance to the a changing world and my Empath ways) I did not want to talk to anyone about what I was feeling inside. I believed it would make me appear weak and vulnerable. I felt frustrated that I was not in control of my emotions (When I discovered I was an Empath they made more sense) and, as I was not prepared to talk to anyone about it, I had to find a way to offload. I did this by journaling.

I came across journaling, quite by chance during a quest to improve my writing skills. In her book, Writing down the Bones, Natalie Goldberg explained: to hone one’s writing ability one should write every day. The idea was just to put pen to paper and see what came out. This is exactly what I did… Continue reading
