True Happiness Is Waiting Inside You.

The test of a smile is whether your eyes are smiling, too.

The great masters teach that external objects do not bring you true happiness. You feel happy for a short time when you get something or succeed at something, but that happiness fades.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could feel happiness — joy — bliss all the time?

That’s possible when you learn to go within yourself and experience your true nature.

We are each the Divine Self.  Our True Self is not separate from the Divine, and the Divine resides in complete, eternal bliss.

How can you contact your True Self?

By going within.

There are many ways to learn to go within.

For some people, sitting quietly in a natural setting, outside among trees, in a garden, by a stream are all ways of connecting with the outer world.   Then, after observing quietly what is around you, you can very naturally turn within and discover what is the beauty of your inner world.

Some people learn to be focused inwards by practicing yoga or a martial art such as Tai Chi.

Meditation is a great practice to strip away all the noise in your head so you can discover the quiet spot inside.  At the Core of your Being is where your True Self and happiness reside.

Allow yourself to be drawn to The Way that resonates for you.  Spend time being with yourself  quietly and with gentle focus.

Today, the Core of your being is in your Heart Chakra or Heart Center.

When you spend time in your Heart Center, it is easier to get in touch with your inner Bliss.

Once the outer world becomes quiet, the inner world can be heard … seen … felt … experienced.

Your inner world is blissful, peaceful, and filled with delight.

Does it surprise you to learn that happiness is your natural state of being?

Many people take nearly a lifetime of rushing around out in the world before they realize that there is nothing outside themselves that will bring them true happiness.

Why take an entire lifetime seeking outside yourself that which is already inside you?

You can begin today.  All you need do is heed the call of your Heart, the call of your True Self.

So turn off your electronic devices – yes, even your cell phone – and learn to go within. There is where you will find true happiness.

 

Tarot Card: The Pipes Are Calling

Grandfather of Pipes

Elves and Faeries love music.
Those of the woodland realm love music.

In the Healing Earth Tarot, one of the suits is called Pipes.   All the images in this suit are from the realm of elementals.  Generally speaking, elementals include faeries, gnomes, leprechauns, and many others around the earth.

The Pipes suit speak from the Heart Chakra and represent the earth, the woods, herbs, and healing with the colors of forest green and earth brown predominating.  Green is one of the colors associated with the Heart Chakra, and the color green in the Heart Center represents healing as well.

Grandfather of Pipes is an elder from the Faerie realm.  His message is to renew our connection with the Earth, with plants and insects, rivers and streams, as a way of restoring our inner harmony and balance.  He also asks us to pay attention to the wild, magical spots on the Earth – to recognize, honor, and protect them.

If you have a garden, dedicating a portion of it to the faeries will be greatly appreciated by them.  Faeries take care of flowering plants and their energy will bring a lightness and beauty to your garden space.

For me, the Grandfather of Pipes message is a call to remember that spring is nearly here and that it’s time to call in the energies of spring both within myself and for the benefit of Nature.

It’s a reminder that we each participate in everything that happens on this planet – energetically, and with our thoughts and feelings, too.  Did your know that your emotions affect the weather?  Do you pay attention to how you walk upon the earth and the message that your physical step sends into the ground?  If you only walk on concrete and asphalt, how will you feel your connection to the Earth?

Within ourselves, there is an “uncharted wilderness” of feelings and emotions we have shunted aside, pushed down, and long forgotten.  Grandfather of Pipes invites us to go within ourselves – to connect with these places – and to heal all that has been abandoned or rejected and hidden away.  Perhaps it’s time for a personal “spring cleaning” to begin.

Grandfather of Pipes calls us all with his music to listen … to pay attention – not only to his music, but to the song of your own soul.

 

Before You Ascend, Own The Power of Your Words

The Throat Chakra

According to the Old Testament, and this is not an exact quote, God spoke . . .  and all that we know – the universe, galaxies, stars, planets, . . . everything came into existence.  God is said to have said, “Let there be LIGHT” or it’s equivalent in whatever language, if there even was such a thing as language.

According to this story, Sound came before Light.  What is Sound?  It is a type of vibration.  According to the most recent theoretical physics, vibration is the most subtle energy pattern that we can discern.  Hmmm.

Out of Sound came what?  Divine Light.  And what is Divine Light?

Divine Light is an aspect of Divine Love. 

From the Sound expression of Divine Light and Divine Love, specific patterns and forms took shape.  Thus was manifested All That Is.

* * * * *

The old children’s rhyme, “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me” is a false statement.  The power of the words we think and speak is the power of MANIFESTATION. 

When we shout angry words at someone, that is energy we are putting out of our body.  Whoever and whatever is present is being affected by that energy — not just the emotional part, but the words, too.  People who are more psychically aware can actually feel the energy of a space when they walk into it.  If anger has been expressed there, they feel the anger.  If sadness and grief have filled the space, they can feel the sadness and grief.

I once visited a Tibetan temple in upstate Vermont.  I was attending a class inside the room where people came to meditate and pray.  We began the class by becoming silent, becoming grounded, and just sitting quietly.  As I moved into that quiet inner space, I heard a mantra being chanted, not by the people in the room, but coming out of the walls.  It was not the mantra I use to meditate, so I knew it wasn’t coming from within me.  “Om mani padme hum” is the chant I heard resonating from everything in that room.

The words you choose to speak and the words you allow to flow out of your mouth without giving them a second thought all create your reality.  Every sound you utter is a vibrational pattern.  We know that certain trained opera singers can literally break a glass with their voice.  That is only a very tiny example of the power of sound to vibrationally disorganize and destroy.  But sound also has the power to create.

SPEAK ONLY WORDS OF LOVE

I used to pray that I would speak only words of love. 

What does this prayer mean?  What would I do with the other feelings I was experiencing?  How would I transform my speech so that only Love poured forth – naturally, automatically, and in every moment?

Truthfully, I am still working on it.  But here is what I have come to understand.

If you want to speak only words of Love, your Heart Centers and your Throat Centers must be open, cleared of all lower vibrational patterns, spinning correctly, balanced, integrated, and aligned within themselves.  Then and only then can be they fully in alignment with each other.  Then, when the flow of energy between your heart and your throat centers is fully aligned, you can choose to speak only words of Love.

Imagine – a world where only LOVE is spoken.

Can you imagine what your life and the lives of everyone else would be like if you and everyone else spoke lovingly? 

What would it feel like?

How would it affect the choices you make?

How would it affect your relationships?

How would it change your perceptions of reality?

Getting Started

If you are already working on Living From Your Heart, then you are already doing the clearing work that will strengthen and align your Heart Center.

Now, focus on your Throat Center.  Identify what needs to be cleared by breathing into your Throat Center and noticing blockages of any kind.  You probably have some, as most people do.  Many of us have been living a life where we speak less than our own personal Truth, and that, in itself, creates blockages.  When we hold back expressing our energy, our energy becomes jammed up.

So if you want to being speaking Only Words of Love, you will have to also begin to speak words of Truth – YOUR Truth.  That doesn’t mean attacking or blaming others.   It does mean being able to say what is true for you WITHOUT accusing others.

Another way to work on your throat chakra is to gently bring DIVINE LOVE from your Heart Center into your Throat Center.  Allow the Love to surround anything and everything that is creating a blockage for the purpose of dissolving it.

Clearing the Throat Chakra – or any chakra – is not a five minute process.  If you are interested in clearing out your chakra system, and healing and aligning it, find a healer that knows how to support this process and can teach you how to work with it on your own as well.

Namaste,

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest.  It is the center of Divine Love in our 4-body system (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels, as they are called.)  The Heart Center is our place of healing.  WIthin it dwells our highest aspect that came into our physical form at the moment of birth.  This aspect has been called many things in different cultures, but I will call it the Divine Spark.

The transformative energy center.

The transformative energy center.

The Divine Spark resides inside a multidimensional MERKABA within the Heart Center.  When seen with the inner eye, the Divine Spark is a pure flame of white light.  It is our individual soul extension and is continuously connected to higher aspects of our Self that live outside the physical form. 

When drawn two-dimensionally, the Divine Spark is shown to exist within a 6-pointed star.  While some call this the Star of David, it is actually a two-dimensional representation of a MERKABA VEHICLE.  (There is also a MERKABA surrounding our auric fields, but that is another discussion.) 

The merkaba or star-tetrahedron.

The merkaba or star-tetrahedron.

The MERKABA is a sacred geometric form that begins to spin when we reach a certain point in our awakening process.  When it is spinning, is increases our personal power in many ways.

There are many other powerful tools of transformation in the heart.  These may be called the Heart emotions, but they vibrate at much higher frequencies than the emotions of the first 3 chakras.  The tools of the heart include:  Love without conditions, Hope, Compassion, Empathy, Forgiveness, Non-Judgment, Generosity, Joy, Peace, Gratitude, Enthusiasm, Detachment, and Communion with Oneness. 

In the Hindu tradition, the Heart Center is drawn with 12 petals of a lotus flower.  Each petal represents a smaller vortex spinning inside the larger vortex of the chakra. 

According to the ancient yogis, when the kundalini, (the divine energy which rests at the base of the spine until we receive spiritual awakening) rises to the heart chakra, we are able to transform our lower vibrational energies into higher frequencies.  The direct result of this transformation is to free ourselves from limitating emotions, limiting beliefs, and limiting thought patterns.  We become expansive, filled with creativity, love, light, and joy.

The Ascension process taking place on the Earth today is, in fact, awakening humanity by literally causing all of our cells, our DNA, and our 4-body system even to the atomic level, to vibrate faster.  This causes denser, lower frequency patterns to be brought to the surface of our awareness.  Things in our lives that made us uncomfortable can no longer be ignored because they are “in our faces.”  We may experience all kinds of symptoms at all levels, and Western medicine is not able to help us.  If we resist looking at and working through the patterns that are now intesified by the energies, we cause ourselves more pain and some even are choosing to leave the Earth plane rather than do the work to transform these energies.

The place to work consciously on whatever is arising for you is in the Heart Center.  There is not only the Divine Toolbox there, but also the Divine Self, who is ready to love, support, and encourage you, as well as to directly provide healing for this process.

Go into your Heart Center today and ask for assistance.  You will never be denied.
