Th Knot of I: Separation, the greatest ego trap

In the previous blog post I spoke about how the third eye helps us to awaken to greater spiritual truths.  One of the most important of those truths is that we are all one.

Ok, before you get too far into your eye rolling-- let me show you that you already know this on some level.  All us humans, we live on a single planet.  When China over-fished it's oceans due to irresponsible practices it started to poach fish off Africa (let's just take a wild guess that China hadn't learned its lesson and was still over-fishing but now in Africa).  Guess what, China's problem became Africa's problem, do you really want to say it will stop there? Or, how about that trash island near Alaska that is reportedly now the size of France.  Can you really say that you have no hand in that and that it will not effect you?  We're already finding that plastic is contaminating our sea salt!  

So on a very physical level we're being shown again and again that problems for one country or region never exist in isolation, and if they remain unresolved or undealt with the spread.  Kinda like cancer. Like the earth is our one body and home and we as humans are all allowing cancer to spread like poison through it.  Politics aside, we do not exist in isolation and what we do for better and for worse has an effect on the world around us.

Ok, ok I'll back off of that for a moment.

So this separating that exists in most of our minds is present down to the level of ourselves as individuals. Our ego (positive and negative) helps us to experience life separately.  This is good because we're able to see that we are truly individuals ( I never said that being connected meant we didn't have uniqueness within that interconnection!).  But gone too far, ego convinces us that we are all alone.  This can be extremely harmful not just for the reasons I've already mentioned on a worldwide level, but because it prevents us from asking for help and receiving it.  It makes us feel separate from all that we want and desire and it makes us numb to the suffering of others.

This separating exists on many levels, but has been traced by yogis back to knots in your energy system.  Without knowing about these knots I experienced their power and only later found that yogis have known about them for thousands of years.

Today I want to talk about the Knot of I.  This knot deals much more with the ego self and with separation.  It's found between your navel and your sternum-- go on and feel for yourself, do you have any tummy knots?

My experience with this area becoming un-knotted was profound!  You know how people always say to trust your gut, or ask if you have a knot in your stomach?  I could never feel those things until one day my knot loosened.  It was in that moment I realized I had never felt the knot because IT WAS ALWAYS THERE...

In this video I talk more about the Knot of I, how it links to the ego, separation, intuition and surrender of control or power.

If you have a knot there, fear not!  It can be released through intention, relaxation, meditation and transcending the idea that we are separate.  Relax into your belonging in this world, allow this world to be your home, your community.  Take up your rightly place and be as big as you were intended to be.  Release the need to control others to feel safe, affirm to yourself that you are already safe, and that you deserve to be here.

I hope you enjoy!  As always please feel free to reach out with any questions or to explore any energy healing that may serve you on your journey.

Headaches or Anxiety? connect to your third eye

Are you experiencing third eye opening or clearing out?   The third eye is responsible for inner vision, intuition and perception of spiritual truths.

When your third eye is open you'll connect to greater meaning in your life, seeing beyond the surface of experiences or relationships.  By connecting to the quiet bliss of third eye energy you can also relax and release old limiting thoughts and monkey mind chatter.

Sounds awesome right!  Well, it is!  By connecting to the third eye we can transcend fear and live in a state of greater flow and alignment-- we just trust in life a little more!

Watch my video to learn more about the third eye and how to easily connect to this energy at any moment.

If you're interested in going deeper I offer quite a few healings that all work to open, connect and awaken your whole chakra systems.  Yes please!

What is Healing?

In previous posts I've delved into what energy work is.  Today I want to take a look at another term I use frequently: healing.

 

What does it mean to heal yourself and why would you try anyway?  How can you know if there's something you need to heal?

Firstly, I believe that each one of us is on this planet to heal something.  We are born with the knowledge of how to heal ourselves, although most of us have forgotten, are too afraid or don't believe in ourselves.  In Kabbalah there is the concept of "tikkun," or reclamation.  The teaching states that each on of us is here to help heal the Earth's soul.  Therefore, it is not shameful to need healing, it is natural.  As we heal ourselves we heal the world, and perhaps that is our primary purpose on this planet.

In this video I'll go into more detail discussing how healing works and I'll focus on depression and anxiety as two major areas that need healing in the US today.

Life Activation and Full Spirit Activation are two really powerful energy healing modalities that help catalyze our own healing process and bring us to new levels of awareness.  Please reach out if they are of interest to you!

Manifesting Soul Love

More than 6 months ago I started a journey to meet my life partner (you can join my facebook group, Manifesting Soul Love here)

There were highs and lows, and then a period of quiet.  I felt like my inspiration for the group was gone.  My partner still hadn't shown and what was I doing anyway?

After coming down with a severe cough for 3 weeks, I found that a whole new understanding of what manifesting my soul mate means for me as a woman came to light.  Catalyzed by powerful conversations with spiritual guide, Jordan Bain, I began to gain greater clarity over not only my own desires but what it means to be a woman.

Manifestation follows the pattern of creation that utilizes sexual energy polarized as masculine and feminine to create.

I am a woman. I run more feminine energy as a natural and aligned state.

For many years I have operated from the frame-work that being a woman isn't enough, that I have to produce like a man to be "successful." I've run my energy trying to be a man, not letting people help me or assist me and trying to do it all.

For a variety of reasons, societal and personal, I felt like it wasn't safe to "rely" on a man, and at worst it was darn right shameful, as if I couldn't provide for myself so I needed a man.

We don't exist in isolation, we rely on each other. In fearing co-dependency, abandonment and disappointment I worked relentlessly, over taxing my system for fear of not surviving.

When we work cooperatively with others true abundance is possible-- we are able to utilize each others strengths and natural talents to create harmony. Creating a new human life, a baby, takes a man and a woman.

Unwittingly, I saw the masculine energy -- the parent that provides, as the more important role. I undermined motherhood, the role of the feminine in nourishing and loving life.

Recently I was asked, "Is being a mother not enough?" How could it not be enough!? And yet when I really asked myself this question-- really asked myself honestly I discovered that in fact, I didn't believe that motherhood was enough. I needed to be independent, provide for myself, be creative and strong and on top of it all a mother.

What is possible if I stand in my femininity and allow the world to provide for me?

What is possible if I allow myself to receive?

What is possible if I accept that motherhood, giving birth to a new child is not only enough, it is perhaps one of the greatest blessings to give this planet, and one of the most important roles.

What can I manifest if I allow myself to stand in my feminine power and flow with my hearts desires, allowing myself to be cared for, nourished, protected and cherished?

This starts first with myself, and then is echoed in the world around me.

Maybe this is the female revolution.

It is mine.

Are You a People Pleaser and Struggle to Speak Your Truth? break the pattern today!

Many of us were not raised in environments that supported our truth.  Quite the opposite, many of us were punished or otherwise silenced as children.

For many, a system in which we prioritize other peoples truths, emotional well being and perspective was created. We learned to undermine our own beliefs and emotions and began to give our power away.

We mistakenly think that we can "keep the peace" by bottling up our truth... except that then we just feel resentful, angry and crappy all the time.

Watch this video for more insight and some quick tips on how to break the cycle!

Life activation is a really amazing 1-1 session that helps us find our truth if it's too buried for us to see anymore!

 

much love, xoxo

How can I stop choosing self destructive thoughts and behavior FAST?

Baby, I feel you.

That shit hurts.

Guess what, you don't need to live with it one second longer.  You can choose to let it go.  You can choose freedom.  You may need a little more awareness though to TRULY let go and better understand what keeps you choosing the bad over and over again.

 

THANK GOODNESS THERE'S A LIFE HACK OUT THERE.  Can I get an AMEN?  Thank you King Salomon, you certainly have lived up to your reputation as wise.  For more info on Initiation check out http://arianabain.com/empowerthyself/.  

Happy healing loved ones!

New Quiz-- Are you more masculine or feminine energy?

We are each made up of a unique blend of masculine and feminine energy.

Regardless of our sex, each of us has yin and yang-- two forces that dance in divine union within us.

Imbalanced masculine and feminine energy can show up as pushing too hard, burnout, depression or repression.

Knowing ourselves and having more clarity about who we are helps us know when we're in a rut and what action will truly help up get out and get moving!

 Find out what you're operating as right now and get some insights into where your true balance lies.
