Archive for the ‘Exercises & Tools’ Category

This week and the past few weeks have been profound not only by the amount of information and creative inspirations coming forth from so many people but also for the ways in which those last vestiges of stuff are being freed for the new understandings of time, space and life dimensions to emerge.

Three posts in one week seems excessive when I a first shown the message, yet now it some muddy sense to me. This last part was really the beginning point of all the writing yet had to wait its correct turn. I hope many of you enjoyed the Introduction to Vedic Medical Astrology in yesterday’s posting. Because this is such good information I have created a separate page under Exercises and Tools (right side bar) titled “Vedic Astrology with Laura Barat”. You can easily access the page without having to remember date of the posting. In the future I plan to have other practitioners of varying disciplines share their information.

Unlock the Heart of the Past

Revelations Beyond Measure!

I was on retreat in Mt Shasta this past week and all I can say is I am Blessed! Looking out of the window at the ancient mountain range called The Eddies (and the Crags) which I was told are in the age range of 2 million years old…Fall is truly with us.

This time of year is always one of review for me, what have I done, accomplished, missed out on, lost, loved and planted seeds for the future. It is only while transferring all the important personal and business phone and contact information into the new day timer for the upcoming year do I actually “see” where I have been, what has been done and with whom. Sitting in the quiet it appears I have achieved very little, yet I am amazed at how many miles of I have traveled and to where….nearly 20,000 miles since October last year.

The nights are close to cold, too cold for me to feel like camping again. The days are marked by blue skies, warmed with sun filled golden rays, hundreds of acres of green mountain pines are changing form with pockets of red, orange and gold as the oaks bear witness to the season’s change.

Watching the sun penetrate golden leaves I wonder at the mysterious alchemy taking place to gift us with such beauty. Someone misunderstanding this comment may begin to explain the scientific, chemical and physical metamorphosis through photosynthesis and question my lack of academic knowledge…..but this is not what I am taking about.

I am talking about the pure wonder and mystery surrounding us every moment, no matter where we live or in what conditions. For a minute, just wonder “Why am I here now!”  “How did I get here!”  Where am I going!”

The most read blog entry I have done thus far is about the Lessons from the Lakota Sundance. Every month without fail people find this entry, read it and yet I have never received a direct comment as to why the attraction, what was learned, if anything, and was it appreciated or not!

Is it because of the renewing interest and respect for Native American teachings and wisdom! Or could it be the mystery and fears surrounding a most sacred and powerful expression of personal sacrifice in the Spirit of Thanksgiving! Thus far I do not know, so I continue to wonder!

It has not been until this retreat within the vortex of Shasta’s mountain have I realized how profoundly the creative juices locked within have opened to create and move.

I have done both on a very small monthly $$ amount, supplemented by client consultations from time to time, occasional work producing videos/blogs for clients, work/trades and varieties of gifting in the form of giving and receiving To and By many others. (These I believe are examples of the “New Economic Paradigm)

From the Day Timer of 2010-2011: (follow journeys in the archives)

The last week of October, 2010 I was pushed to leave living in Mt Shasta for good (at least I thought so!) It was a time of hurt and emotional pain on many levels. I landed in Sebastopol, CA (near Santa Rosa) and during the second week  there I ended up “flat on my back and so sick for 5 days”…even death felt like an option! Major detox and emotional/vibrational recalibrations are not nice medicine!

Late November took me to friends on Meditation Mountain in Sonora, where we were trapped by the Thanksgiving week snow storm and then renewed by a trip to Big Sur that foretold the future.

First week of December, a return to Mt Shasta to stomp felts for a week. December 10th  was the beginning of the five thousand miles road trip alone to see my sons in Kansas City, MO and St Petersburg, FL. A trip about clearing the past, revealing and acknowledging pains, fear, joys and loves…..so much…too much….all so worth it!  The journey documented in January blog entries.

Returned to Sonora January 14th in the wee hours to rest, regroup and figure out “what’s next!”  Time was spent with more writing and making teaching videos on “Time Collapsing.” When an opportunity to explore a creative project came from a couple of friends in Ashland. I said Yes to the mystery of it and headed to Mt Shasta for a couple of days and the mineral waters before arriving in Ashland, OR mid February. The next six weeks were filled with new people and too many interesting dynamics to mention. While in Ashland I worked on other people’s creative visions and did a third performance of my own hour and a half theater piece “Awakening and Igniting Ecstasy In-Formation…New Twists on Money, Power, Sex and Death. (It wasn’t as good as the first two performances and knocked the wind out of me.)

March marked the world changing event of the Japan Earthquake, as well as my grandson’s birth. New recognition as a Facilitator of Personal Life Alchemy renewed my faith and finances for a short while, and a week trip to Florida to see new little Braydon was possible.

April and May were spent going back and forth between Sonora and Sebastopol once again….even day timer entries are blurred through these months, as though they didn’t really exist.  The end of May took me to Santa Cruz for the week long 1000 Hummingbird Gathering of Indigenous Women.

From there, north to Ashland again to visit and do some work. First week of June was back to Mt Shasta to stomp felts again for four days and then returning to Sonora to prepare for the Summer Solstice Retreat I was facilitating.

The first week of July, Stephanie and I drove to Palm Springs and Joshue Tree to visit her friends….daily heat index 108 degrees! We all moved very slowly!

Back to Sonora for a week. July 17th drove to Selma, OR to participate in the week long Mystic Garden Music Gathering.  The Walking for World Peace Labyrinth was presented for the first time (video diaries are within the blog entries.) July 26th arrived back in Mt Shasta and camped behind Lake Siskiyou to rest before presenting the Labyrinth at the  Best of Mt Shasta Conference.

Rested for a week before returning to Sebastopol to help a friend with his garden, while he attended his mother’s recovery from surgery. What I thought would be a two week stay evolved into two and a half months, staying in my tent sanctuary under a 500 year old oak tree. As normal, this time was blessed by new friends, some work, theater and dance evenings, drumming and kirtan, more amazing experiences in the sharing of the Peace Labyrinth, created a five part audio/video series on Physical and Spiritual Baggage, experienced challenging interactions from time to time and blessed with great learning and growth for all and finally I was chosen by a feral kitten to be surrogate mother for a few weeks, before finding the perfect home for him.

Early September I spent a week near Lassen National Park and Forest helping a friend dig for sacred medicinal roots and herbs in the role of Medicine Woman. Turning talents to create a blog for him along with filming a video, editing and uploading it as his own teaching video.

And then late last week once again the Shasta Mountain and Waters called me to rest, rejuvenate, reunite, review and now revel in the wonder and mystery of What and Where IS Next!

On Thursday night while singing and chanting in the sacred space of my friend’s Kirtan evening, a message rang loud and clear within me…. “you will teach in Europe and UK next year.” I heard it once and then again and then I said YES I will!   The how and with whom, I leave to the great mystery to reveal, soon and clearly I hope!

Following the next day when talking to a young woman about helping me transcribe the latest audio/video series into working guidebook, she made an amazing creative suggestion about the labyrinth, so now yet another project to manifest.…hopefully not alone for I long to experience strong, balanced, creative and successful partnerships from here on out!

Turn up and wait! Right!

As a footnote I will say I am tired of all the moves, uncertainty and to find a safe, welcoming, loving and creative home space would be wonderful. Yet I cannot make a place so if it is not or I am not ready or in alignment with a particular energy.

This is one of the most important lessons gained in these times of Time and Space speeding up and collapsing all at the same time. One moment or day all the pieces and people may be in exact alignment and then, with even a change of decision, actions or desires by one person, it can and will change the entire scenario, which may lead to (in theatrical terms) your character, scene and/or purpose deleted from the play…..you don’t need to turn up for rehearsal… but to now wait and see where and how your character (You) can be a star, in a supporting role, the lover, villain, Samaritan, creator, whatever is part and parcel of the Life and Soul journey for the rest of 2011, 2012 and beyond.

Before  reviewing the past year, if I had been asked what had I done and achieved during that time, much would have been left out because I don’t remember how it all just evolved and happened. Would all of this have been possible several years ago….I don’t think so……We are already in the movement and flow of Time, Space and Dimensions Shifting….the illusion is real!

 It has been a busy week since our last meeting and these last few days I have been on the road visiting.

Last Sunday the “Walking for World Peace Labyrinth” was at the Sebastopol Farmer’s Market and I had the wonderful experience of meeting and sharing it with with some people. In fact 6 children, 5 – 9 years old, asked to walk and learn all about the paths and colors. In innocence they know so much!

Here is Part 2 Audio of Storing the Past….Clearing the Future plus additional perspectives on Abundance, Money and Possession Exercises.

There is a lot to digest so take your time, return to it often, download and listen to the audio and then perhaps apply some of the ideas to your life.

If you do, I would love to hear your experience!

Enjoy the journey this week!

The Alchemy of Abundance

Abundance is all around us every day. It is expressed in millions of different forms and most profoundly in nature. The sayings Like attracts like!  Money makes money! Why are they true? Because the energy of the attraction of LIKE or MAKING MONEY has been set as “already having it” verses “not having it and then wanting it!”

A good everyday example of this energy flow is the pay-day cycle, no matter whether weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, the ratios are the same. Pay-day can be recognized as the “sigh of relief” that resonates through the life energy fields and it plays out like this:

Pay-day plus one or two days are usually days of spending with a more light-hearted attitude of letting go of the funds. These times are often marked by surprise gifts, invites to lunch or dinner, a more receptive attitude to giving and receiving in general.

Yet, as the days move further away from payday the hold on, hold back energetic message grows in strength. To the point those three to four days before the next payday the energetic vice grip is well in place – “there isn’t enough money to make it”! And so there probably will not be enough! Thus providing a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Why is this so? Because the energetic flow of abundance $$s was stopped by the attitude and actions played out as each day progressed, thus fulfilling the FEAR OF LACK! This is where abundance and prosperity are linked. (Be discerning about what is truth and hype!)

While at the same time there is probably a marked increase in the abundance of fear, anxiety, anger, weight gain, substance abuse and violence because those energy channels were wide open to accept the idea of not enough of one ($$) and plenty of the other (negative behavior).

The Universe works in a very simple way, in a cycle of continual flow – in and out, round and round, giving and receiving, birth, growth, completion, death, rebirth. That is the exact cycle of all nature, and this should be our own cycle of understanding abundance and life.

Are we taught to live in this way?   No!

Why not? Simply put, because power, control and greed would have less of a foothold in the daily workings of the planet’s populations if there were more conscious awareness.

Can greed, power and control ever disappear? Yes, if the human race totally changed their ways. Is this likely? No! Perhaps because these attributes are a necessary mirror not only for each individual but also for companies, governments and whole countries, to know what they will accept or reject for themselves and others in everyday life.

What is Prosperity

According the to dictionary, Prosperity is the condition of being prosperous, to be fortunate, successful, thrive.

Prosperous: is to cause success, make fortunate, having, flourishing.

If you notice, it is a state and action rolled into one.

Thus the Alchemy of Abundance is about transmuting the abundance of perceived challenges and lack to the Cause of fortunate, flourishing, prosperous success.

Prosperity Exercises:

If you are serious about changing your life or at least the perspective of life here are some exercises that will, it nothing else, get your attention!


Begin in one room and go through every draw, cupboard, shelf, box, everything – SEE HOW MUCH YOU REALLY ALREADY HAVE!

Now divide a large page into columns titled:

  • Keep / Away / Duplicates / Use / Not Use / $Value / Energy Value / what is Mine or Others
  • What will you keep?      Make note of the $ value, keep the tab going.
  • What will you give or throw away?  Make a note of the $ value, keep adding.
  • How many duplicate items do you have?
  • How much has it ever been used!
  • Will you continue to use it?
  • Why are you holding on to it? Is it your energy or is someone else demanding you keep it?
  • How much energy is it costing you to hold on?
  • How much is it costing you to move?

Add the totals of each list – make sure you are sitting down because you will be shocked to see just HOW ABUNDANT you really have been and are!

+NOW SURRENDER AND LET GO!

The next step is a very important exercise to increasing your personal, family, and business abundance. It is to “LET GO OF” what is finished, what is no longer required, what is broken, out-dated, old, and of no value to your physical, mental and emotional well-being, especially if there is a BIG energetic hold to it, whether monetary or sentimental.

Just like the half-full/half-empty glass of water – there has to be space to receive and accept more.

A very relevant example is the significance of bamboo in Chinese painting and feng-shui. First bamboo is known as a symbol of prosperity and abundance. The reasons are because of its natural growth pattern. Bamboo has long, straight green stalks with obvious growth sections. The fabric makeup of bamboo is very strong yet pliable, hollow inside, and once planted it will continue to grow and multiply to the point that it is incredibly difficult to get rid of.

The external attributes of the bamboo speak for themselves, yet it is the hollowness of the bamboo that I find to hold the most truth and revelation. This is how a young Chinese artist explained the

“The color green is for growth from Mother Nature; the stalk is about straight direction, strength, moving step by step; although strong it is flexible enough to go with the flow of the wind when necessary; it can be molded and shaped into furniture, it multiplies and increases itself; it is hollow to allow a clear channel of life or God energy to come through its center, the Void, and rejuvenate from the inside. If the channel becomes blocked there is obviously no room to accept new and rejuvenating life energy.”

In other words:  if your life both internally and externally is filled to the brim with old and outdated stuff, there is absolutely no room for anything new to even attempt to come into your life.

To really understand this concept of treasures verses junk – help a friend pack up and move their belongings. Because you are detached from the possessions it is easier to see and feel how and where the wasted and blocked energy patterns come from in your friend’s life.

By referring back to the questions earlier as well as answering The Alchemy of Abundance questions you will be able to see rather clearly where and why your own life energy may be blocked.

The Three-Step Process –

  • Acknowledge the “blockage”
  • Throw it out or Let it go!
  • And BREATHE

What is A-bun-dance?

Fun with words – I love the way this looks –

A little, round ball of dough ($$) dancing!

Abundance is a mass, a supply or collection of something or anything – abundance is not just about money and $$$. The magic of abundance is to understand ‘what it is’ in order to have more of ‘what it is not’.

That doesn’t make sense in the everyday world, or at least this is what has been taught.

Being more than money, abundance is a mass of anything; weight, anger, hate, power, junk, fears, doubts, you name it… so it is to pay attention to and ask for the appropriate abundance to manifest.

For instance if you say an abundance prayer, or any prayer for that matter, a safe way to end a prayer or request is to qualify the outcome as “whatever will be in the highest and greatest good of self and all concerned!”

For instance, it may not be in your highest good to win the lottery, for until you learn how to appreciate the value of money and how to manage it in life, the lottery win would add to the life challenge and not be as valuable and as energized as its potential.

Here is a money example: Dollar notes ($$) designating various numerical values are ‘just pieces of paper’. The worth is in the energetic value associated with the numerical value.

Simply put, the more zeros (00) at the end of the number, the more value. And guess what, in numerology, zeros represent the direct interplay with ‘Spirit’, in other words ‘Higher Guidance. Therefore, every dollar has a Spiritual Value connected to it!

The flip-side: The abundance of the not-so-good things in our lives is about what is being held onto, to the detriment of the process of living. It can be possessions, people (both alive and those who have passed through the veils), money, beliefs, power, control, emotions, mental turmoil, and the list goes on. It is the energetic form that determines the mass of abundance, and when that is understood, much can become clear.

Doing the Life Illuminations exercises are a way to become aware of what is IN and what needs to be OUT of YOUR Life to make     A-Bun-Dance! SMILE!

Please feel free to share your thoughts and concerns on today’s topic!

Until next time……
