Tired Eyes

Some days my eyes feel sunken, like the weight of it all is pulling my eyes through the back of my skull.

Sugar Water Bread

She dreams of escaping on a 2-wheel bicycle. A big girl bike. Perhaps to the place she sees on the television set tuned to one of 3 channels to, “Lassie Come Home.” The rabbit ears on the set adjusted for the best reception. She sits with her legs tucked under her, sitting about a 12 inches away from the tv. The sound turned down low. She is told to sit there and enjoy the show, her baby sister has been put to bed for the night and quiet is a must in the small home. Her hair is brushed neatly and smells of Johnsons baby shampoo. The night gown softly drapes over her knees. The show distracts her from the events of the day. She cranks her head back, totally immersed in the program. The dog, Lassie, is barking at the little boy and jumping up and down with joy. Inside the small rambler is still stifling and sticky.

It was a hot, hot summer day in 1966. One of those days where you could fry an egg on the hood of the red station wagon. Watch it bubble and crinkle around the edges in less than a minute. The preschooler had been outside with her sisters in the blistering sun. The preschooler is the oldest of the three. Her brown hair, lightened by the summer sun, is tied back in a pony tail. Short bangs. She wears a sleeveless dress and white tennies, dirty from being outside every day. One untied because she hasn’t learned to tie her own shoes quiet yet. She’s  5 years old.  Her sister just turned 4 and is dressed in red and navy blue striped shirt with red pants and the same shoes, 2 sizes smaller. Mom says, “Sit down, I have a special treat for you.” The step on the side of the house is hot on her bare legs. She senses the treat isn’t something so special. But she is starving. And hot. Her skin feels hot to the touch and her sisters are both flushed. Mom says, “My mom made this for me when I was little! It’s called sugar water bread.”

Mom hands the little girls each a piece of bread that has been softened with water and sprinkled with sugar. Mom has a remarkable talent for making everything seem fun and exciting. But today was different. No amount of sugar can sweeten the events of the day. Today was the day of the visit to Dr. Hoo.

The family plans to move to a new neighborhood, close to a school where the little girl will start Kindergarten in the fall. And according to regulations, a school check up and vaccinations are needed before starting school. It had to be done. Life is busy. Money is tight. Doctor visits are rare except when vaccinations are necessary or a new baby has arrived.

Mom drives the three girls to the doctor office located in a busy part of town with large, brick homes. She parks the station wagon on the street in front of the home. The doctor has his office in the lower part of this large home. Baby sister is fussy in the heat. She plays with the keys from the car. The preschooler quietly gets out of the car. Having been told, “Be good and do what the doctor says,” several times in the car on the way. Mom, baby sister and little sister walk slowly up the stairs. They enter the screen door, which creaks loudly. Heavy.

They enter the office. It’s hot. Slightly to the left is a receptionist desk. The woman, who has worked for the doctor for only 3 weeks sits behind the desk.  A desk fan oscillating slowly left to right. Left to right. Useless on a 98 degree day. To the right of the desk a heavy wood door stained dark brown. She peers in the darkened room, which seems darker than the waiting room. She smells something that reminds her of the stuff mom uses when the kitchen floor is mopped. Pine disinfectant. But there is an unfamiliar smell – something old and rotten. It reminds her of the time when her dad found a dead mouse under the kitchen sink. Four straight-back chairs set along the wall in a waiting area to the right of the heavy door.

“Hello! We’ve been expecting you.” the reception says with a grin. She wipes the back of her neck with her hand. “I’m ready for rain. Anything to cool off.” Baby sister is fussy. Little sister sees a small box of toys under the table next to the chairs and goes to it. Curious as always. Mom sighs. Relieved the 3-year-old has found something to play with so she can soothe the baby who has refused to nap in the heat for the past few days.

Mom looks at the receptionist with tired eyes. “We have an appointment with the doctor for a school check up and shots.” Her voice is quiet, she hasn’t slept well in the heat and is feeling like she might be coming down with a fever, her throat scratchy. She’s more distracted than usual, having felt a bump in the roof of her mouth this morning while brushing her teeth.

The doctor steps out from inside the exam room. The heavy wooden door creaking loudly. “Oh, you have your hands full, why don’t I take your daughter in while you sit out here with the two little ones? She’ll be fine with me.” Mom hesitates. Looks at her oldest daughter who is looking up at her with pleading eyes that say, “Please don’t leave me.” Mom sighs and then agrees to let her daughter in the exam room alone with the doctor.

30 minutes later, her daughter changed forever. Mom wishes she had gone in the exam room.

At home, the preschooler sits mesmerized by the television show. Mom talks quietly in the kitchen with Dad who has returned home from a long day. The quiet talk turns to murmurs with an occasional accusatory, “Why did you leave her alone with him?” Mom runs out of the kitchen and down the hall. Baby sister is crying, standing up in her crib.

The summer heat has seared the events into the essence of the family. Now and forever running from the truth.

Sacred Geometry Basics and Sacred Name Symbols

Preparing information for a group discussion at Jill Sand Wellness Consultant’s place on February 1st. I feel honored to present information about Sacred Geometry and how I create the Sacred Name Healing Medallions. At the discussion, I will also guide the group through an Illuminated Energy Center meditation.

Here is some very, very basic information about sacred geometry:

The following is an excerpt from http://leeanndz.com/article/sacred-geometry/

There is a ton of information out there to be found. My interpretation here is to simplify and apply it to the journey of love and light each of us is worthy of.

SACRED GEOMETRY is an ancient science and a sacred language. It is a key to understanding the way the universe is designed because it is the most fundamental of all the laws of Nature. This language has the ability to balance and inform. Images, designs, glyphs, and symbols provide us with an avenue to awaken archetypal knowledge. The vibration alone is a powerful tool for the subconscious and super-conscious mind to say aha!

The circle represents eternity, unity, oneness, cyclic law, continuity, creation, center, macrocosm, everlasting life. The Circle is a line beginning at a point and traveling in a curve until it returns to the same point; it has no beginning and no end. The true circle is ever-expanding, representing manifestation. It also represents 360 degrees – whole truth, rather than a partial truth of 180 degrees (the triangle).

The line represents the principle of duality, or the law of opposites.

An equal-arm cross represents fairness, balance, justice and equality. The point of intersection in the equal-arm cross represents the heart of balance in our higher nature and lower nature (spirit and matter).

The hexagram (Six Pointed Star) represents the balance of masculine and feminine energies. It is the higher and lower aspects of self merging, blending, integrating and fusing.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Symbols contain a seed of greater benefit, a doorway to the inner realms, revealing a hidden truth to be discovered in divine right time and order. Symbols abound, in nature, dreams, people, situations, answers to questions suggested by the mere offering of the symbol. The presence of a symbol is a type of guiding light, a beacon of illumination heralding the way to higher learning.

Thank you to LeeAnn Fagan Dzelzkalns for the information above. http://leeanndz.com/article/sacred-geometry/

I have been practicing geometric designs as a graphic designer for over 30 years. After a series of personal traumas, I  began searching for greater meaning and my soul purpose. I discovered energy medicine and now combine graphic arts with healing arts.

Sacred-geometry-seed-of-life

A version of the seed of life was revealed to me in 2014. I combined the Seed of life with an equal-armed cross to create the Aligned with Life symbol. This symbol brings together life with alignment. A heavenly view from above of the top of a magnificent tree. And most importantly, the justice and equality for all to know they are safe and worthy of receiving joy and love.

Sacred-geometry-aligned-with-life-symbol.png

 

Every letter of the English alphabet is found in the Aligned with Life Symbol. Therefore, if every letter is found in one symbol,  we are all connected. One symbol represents all words and all names.

 

Sacred-geometry-alphabet.png

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

In my practice, the intent for the medallions is to help an individual heal. I honor the unique individual by morphing the shape to reflect each individual’s sacred essence and guidance from a divine source for the greatest good. Each Sacred Name Symbol begins with the basic shape but then takes on it’s own unique personality reflecting the soul.

Your given name is sacred. The geometric symbol created from the letters of your name expresses a resonance, unique to the needs of your energetic vibrations. You could say each also carries a specific tune.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

An example here is the name “Jill.” Jill’s energy needs differ from day to day. Divine guidance may be directing  a linear energy for spiritual connection or a more circular design.Sacred-geometry-sacred-name-jill.png

 

Sacred-geometry-sacred-name-jill-symbol

A medallion is made by transferring the symbol to the wooden disc and then color is applied based on a Guidance Card reading. The colors correlate to the energy centers: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and white. Each medallion is infused with the healing sound vibrations of Tibetan Singing bowls. I also encourage adding a drop of your favorite essential oil. The wood welcomes the oil and the fragrance lingers for hours.

••••••••••••••••••••••

Sacred name symbols are also added to the tree of light or the aligned with life symbol. Here you see the Sacred Name Symbols for Jill and Cammy.

A journey to peace. Illumination despite a hostile environment.

In the Illumination Process post, I discussed the stages of illumination. Today’s guidance reveals several other factors effecting the stages and what we can do to help the process in a positive way.

Many are born fully illuminated. They are our greatest teachers. But most go through the illumination process in their own way. Each unique and perfect.

Knowing there are options to know peace, acceptance, gratitude, forgiveness, love and joy is a journey worthy of all.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Pre-illumination Stage:

We start with a simple diagram of an energy being. Much like a glow stick in a package. The 7 energy centers aligned, doing their thing to help us go about the business of daily life. A protective shell, also called the ego, surrounds the energy centers of the energy being. Around the shell is the soul space. The new energy centers waiting in the soul space ready for illumination.

External negative forces include anything and anyone with negative energy. External positive forces include anything and anyone with positive energy.

 

Illumination process stage 1 elements

••••••••••••••••••••••

Ignition Stage:

In a simple scenario where life is calm and ideal, an external negative force breaks through the soul space and snaps the protective shell. The heart center reacts by releasing from the protective shell.

Illumination process stage 2. Ignition.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Sensitive Response to Negative Forces:

The above scenario would be ideal. But ,of course, rarely a reality. So, here is an example of what happens when a sensitive energy being comes into the world. There are two different scenarios:

  1. This sensitive being has a regular protective shell  but because of their sensitive nature, they can withstand less negative force
  2. Extremely hostile external environment surrounds the soul space

In both cases, if the heart  releases, it senses the hostile environment and retreats back into the protective shell. The energy being then adds a layer to the protective shell.

Illumination process protective shell thickens. A sensitive being in a hostile environment will add a layer to the protective shell unless changes are made.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Sensitive Response Advanced Stage:

The energy centers within start to dim and shrink with an advanced response to negative forces. There are two different scenarios here as well:

  1. The environment remains hostile
  2. or the energy being interprets the environment as hostile by reviewing negative memories over and over, the shell thickens more.

At this stage the energy being is susceptible to disease, accidents and violence. The negative emotions of anger, denial, remorse, guilt, instability, lack, grief, unworthiness, confusion and others become common. The negative emotions create a state of constant fight or flight. Survival. Creating enough energy within to survive.

If the sensitive being stays in the hostile environment, the shell thickens more and the energy centers shrink and fade.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Internal Decision to Change:

The internal decision to change is prompted by an event that triggers a memory.  This emotional trigger is very, very strong. Strong enough for change to happen from within.

Often times the trigger acts as a recall of the original negative force – such as a childhood memory, ancestral ties, social event or other original source.

The positive outlook and hope for change becomes strong enough to override the adrenaline of the negative emotions. Gratitude.

This decision to change acts to thin the protective shell, attracts positive external forces and the energy centers grow stronger. The heart center enlarges and opens.

A personal example: my son’s enlistment in the military triggered a strong emotional response in me. My hope for his safety was greater than any other adrenaline rush I had survived on. The hope for his safety was directly related to a personal memory. The perfect catalyst for my internal change. My heart opened and I looked for solutions. I found gratitude for the present moment, meditation and Chakra balancing for daily survival. A paradigm shift from within.

An event takes place that triggers an emotional response so strong that it opens the heart center.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Choice — get back on track with illumination or to retreat back into the protective shell:

The energy being makes choices every moment. Move forward or retreat back into the protective shell.

If moving forward, eventually, more and more positive forces surround the soul space. Illuminated beings, positive experiences, guides, angels, earthly angels, teachers, and events. Strong emotions such as love and gratitude override all negative forces

A personal example here is when I was given a “6 months to live” diagnosis. That was over 11 years ago! The love and gratitude I have for my children was stronger than giving up. There must have been self-love as well. I decided to move forward and be with my children instead of leave. I accepted angels, joy, love and peace in my life.

Choice is made to get back on track or regress

••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Attraction Stage:

If the moving forward, the heart center expands and acts as a magnet, drawing in the new energy centers. The protective shell becomes permeable, allowing positive energy to enter and release.

stage 3. Heart releases and draws in the new energy centers

If retreating into the shell, the cycle repeats itself until the choice is made to move forward.

In my life, I experienced a sense of peace for years after my son enlisted and after the diagnosis. But then my son deployed overseas and I regressed into anger and unworthiness. At that time, I made the choice to retreat into a very dark place. It lasted for several years until I recalled the power within to open my heart.  This most recent decision has attracted a series of divine experiences. I will tell you more about my recent journey of illumination in a separate post.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Alignment Stage:

The new energy centers come into alignment and radiate. The protective shell completely dissolves. The soul space hugs the energy centers closer. Each of the new energy centers radiate an energy so strong and positive that the protective shell is permeable.

 

Alignment stage. The new energy centers align and radiate.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Illuminated Stage

The illuminated stage is a simple state of joy, love, safety, wisdom, connection and peace. Energy beings at this stage of illumination spread light every moment now and forever through their thoughts, actions and existence. This stage of illumination has an exponential effect on all.

Illuminated stage with new chakras activated.

 

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Knowing there are options to recall peace, acceptance, gratitude, forgiveness, love and joy is a journey worthy of all.

I send love and light to all. I am because we are.

Illumination Process

Tree of light with the 6 new chakras

Are you on an illuminated spiritual journey? Do you ever feel a bit confused and alone? I urge you to reach out, to find others going through a similar experience. We are here to help one another.

This past week, I attended a group discussion at the studio of Jill Sand Consulting. Jill shared some very interesting information that helps to explain a lot of what has gone on with me over the past few years. Thank you Jill, for following your guidance. And many thanks to Karen Downing who explains  the Chakra Ascension process in her blog at yoursoulmission.com

During the discussion, we were given a lot of information about Chakra Ascension. I like to call it spiritual illumination. I could feel others were a bit confused at first, with our protective egos popping up, saying, “Hey, where is this information coming from? How can I trust it?” I asked the questions of Jill who explained it very kindly to us.

Like many new concepts, the information flows in front of us through our spiritual guides, our intuition and from earthly guides, mentors and teachers. With my protective ego at ease, my observational/nonjudgmental ego to surfaced.  My soul recognized the information as truth.  I relaxed and the information came through much more clearly.

Like I said, there was A LOT of information. It rattled and tumbled around a bit. I woke up the next day ready to simplify, communicate and share! Woohoo! Cuz that’s what I do. I like to simplify with graphics to help communication. The greatest graphic design dream.

Following is a short meditation to get started. This meditation came about in 2015 around the time of Molly Friedenfeld’s spring retreat after I noticed a lot of people needed to feel safe to move forward. You’ll notice later how there is a direct tie-in with the topic for today.

⁃    Gently trace or tap your nose, cheeks, ears and the back of your head. Up and around your forehead. Your ears. your chin, your jaw.
⁃    Breathe it in the silver blue light. Exhale it out. Pause with your fingers at your 3rd eye.
⁃    Repeat three times, “I AM CONNECTED WITH MY SOUL AND I AM KNOWING.”
⁃    We’re now at the top of your head. Bring both hands up, way up above your head. As far as you can comfortably reach. Feel a violet light filling the space between your hands. Pause. Breathe.
⁃    Visualize a white light with gold flecks extending as far up above your hands as you can imagine. The light takes you places you have never been before. Here you have a divine connection, recall all that your soul knows as truth. Know you are free to release those hidden truths.
⁃    Wiggle your fingers and sprinkle that white light over your body.
⁃    Repeat three times, “I AM PEACEFUL AND I AM TRUTHFUL.”
⁃    With your hands extended up above your head, reach up and then bring them out to either side as if in a bubble. See the white light extending out and protecting you. Bring your hands down toward the earth bring them back together in prayer position at your heart center. Rub them together briskly. Place one on each side of your face and open your eyes.
⁃    Repeat your name 3 times. “I AM ____________________.”
⁃    Welcome to the present moment. Be with this moment and know you are and always have been and always will be illuminated from within.

⁃    Thank you!

Knowing we are safe and connected with the earth is a very important part of the illumination process.

To me, feeling safe has been an important part of my journey. During the spring of 2015, I too found myself needing to know I am safe to move forward. I used LilyTiger Guidance Cards every day or so. And guess what kept coming up? A root chakra card! “I AM SAFE”

Why did I need to feel safe? So much stuff has happened in my life that put me in constant fight or flight mode. A constant adrenaline rush of go – go – go – escape. I had to find a way to feel safe for survival. So, after the root chakra cards popped up I practiced self Reiki, acupressure, attended a wonderful retreat, participated in healing circles, wore a healing medallion and practiced meditation much like the one here in this blog. It worked, I know I am safe. I feel stable and am moving forward in a state of joy and gratitude.

I know I am connected to the earth. It will always be here for me.

The second thing I did this past year that helped me to feel more peaceful was to feel worthy and accepted. To know I am worthy of joy and love and forgiveness. Forgiveness of myself and others. Creating and wearing a sacred name healing medallion daily has helped me reach a state of self acceptance and worthiness. I won’t go over any activity in this blog entry. But I urge you, if you haven’t done it already, to find someone or something that can guide you through an exercise of self acceptance and worthiness. Late last year I experienced a very helpful tapping sequence led by Julie Jacky.

So . . . now we get back to the main topic: Energy Center Illumination.

You see here that the chakras have been, for many of us, a core group of 7 energy wheels. All lined up, each developing throughout our lives. And carrying on as they should. Life has been good for the most part.

But now . . . change is occurring and has occurred. Exciting! Confusing! Mixed emotions.  Everyone is different. There is no right or wrong. There is no hierarchy. It happens differently for everyone.

In the Pre-illumination Stage you see the 7 old chakras lined up and encased in a container.

Are you familiar with glow sticks? The kind you might get for kids at Halloween? Well, the old chakras in the pre-illumination stage are like a glow stick still in the package. In order to light up, an external source snaps the stick with just enough force to release the chemical reaction. And then after that it glows and leads the way!

The illumination process is much like that. In the beginning. We are a fuel cell filled with energy and light. And then something comes along with enough force to ignite us.

That brings us to the 2nd stage. The Ignition Stage. A force strong enough at our heart center needs to happen in order for ignition to take place. One thing or a combination of events. Something with a strong emotional charge. A deep depression or illness or a loved one’s transition.  Something happens that triggers our soul to open our heart and set our heart free. Ultimately it is our decision. We need to move forward and seek out the change.

In my personal experience, it was a combination of events that ignited my heart opening. My son enlisting in the military catapulted me into knowing I needed more than a physical connection. My soul told me something needed to change. That change was the start of my personal illumination process. It has taken me 7 years. I can confidently share with you that I am well on my way to opening up my Ultimate Being Chakra.

I found a key that unlocks the door. Many of you have also. And if you haven’t, you will in your own time.

And when that happens. That ignition. Our heart light energy glows brighter. This is the Attraction Stage. The heart chakra  becomes a magnet and attracts the new chakras. The changes happen over the course of moments, days, weeks, months or years.

Let’s review what just happened.  The glow stick contains the the 7 old chakras. A positive force comes along and snaps the container. The force releases our heart chakra. The heart chakra attracts new chakras like a magnet.

In the Attraction Stage, the heart chakra attracts new chakras that waited for us at a soul level.

A few old chakras fade and go away, some change. The new chakras come into alignment. This is the Alignment Stage which happens over time and is different for everyone. There are stops and starts. One by one, the new chakras align and work together to create a state of illumination.

Here are the new chakras in the Illumination Stage. I’ll explain their roles starting with the Earth Root Chakra at the feet and move to the top of your head for the new Ultimate Being Chakra.

energy-illumination-stages-2016-b-fig-3

•    Earth Root Chakra (red) radiates red light below our feet and into the earth.  Focus on connection with the past and moving forward and connecting us with the earth.
•    Belly Button Chakra (tangerine orange). Focuses on nourishment, group need, energy, creativity and intuition.
•    Hand Chakra (yellow). Focuses on giving and receiving, manifestation, sense of self and gratitude
•    Universal Love Chakra (green) and radiates a green light as far as you can imagine and further. Focuses on unconditional love, peace and compassion
•    Soul Star Chakra (silver blue) radiates  silver blue light as far as you can imagine on all planes and dimensions. The Soul Star Chakra focuses on spiritual truth, connecting with spirit, communication, perception, clarity and telepathy.
•    Ultimate Being Chakra (violet) radiates a white light with gold flecks. Focuses on divine connection, releasing hidden truths and much more.  Let your imagination go with this one! Remote viewing, bi-location, connecting with multiple dimensions of the universe as well as the grid of time and space.

And the super cool thing about all of this is how the energy centers radiate way beyond us!

To help simplify even more, close your eyes and see a butterfly or a dragon fly or a beautiful tree. Anything, you pick. The tail or tip or root system red; the body or trunk orange, yellow and magenta; the lower wings or leaves are green; the upper wings or sky are silver blue and the antennae are a shimmering white with gold flecks.

The illumination process happens in cycles. The process of encapsulated energy cell to breaking free to attracting change to illumination can happen again and again. But as we go along, the stages shorten and become a bit easier to get through. Eventually the illuminated stage lengthens and becomes brighter and brighter.

This explains how and why there are many more teachers of light out there today. They are able to sustain this illumination. Their wings are larger and brighter. They fly further and higher.  Branches are bigger, stronger, longer.

It’s very simple. Visualize a butterfly or dragonfly or a tree.
