Greenleaf Happenings July 2018 – Transforming Realities

This month has been a transformative doorway in many ways. Miracles, births and letting go.  The process of change is not easy; it’s mixed with moments of fear, melancholy, hope and excitement. All is possible, but we must open our hearts and minds as a new reality continually beacons.

Not Gone, Just Changing

My beloved dog Titania released her physical body during the Capricorn Full Moon, on Thursday June 28th, at 10:30 am. She passed peacefully at home in my arms – just as we had hoped. However, Titania is constantly reminding me that she has just stepped out of her body to take care of some things, but is still very much alive. Titania has made it very clear that she will return next spring with a new puppy body to continue our grand adventure!

The return of an animal is more common than most realize. Some of these animal companions are much more than they appear to be. Many are old souls, masters in disguise who assist and support our life’s journey.

It’s interesting that those who have released their physical body can be perplexed at our attachment to their old suit. In truth, no one ever dies – they just change their form to upgrade and/or move into new experiences.

The need for me to surrender to the forward movement Titania and I are positioning for has been closely monitored by our Guides & Angels. A plan is in place and if I do not move beyond my ego’s needed grieving period, our reunion may go awry.

When you let something or someone go, you allow new growth to take place. The wonderful experiences and the love you shared is never lost and will always exist, enhancing your Divine experience that moves forward with you. However, holding onto the past ties you to an energy you have already outgrown – this causes chaos and the absence of forward movement.

Forming attachments to people or animals is an ego trait or habit that says either “you need me or I need you.” In the Souls truth, there is no need or neediness, there is only love, acceptance, freedom, growth and unity that is your constant Truth.  In other words, there is no need for us to hold onto anything or anyone, because no real separation actually exists. The sense or belief in separation from anyone or anything is a figment of the mind – a formation of the ego.

This is not easy to accept when a loved one passes and releases their body. Yes, the ego self needs to grieve, because there must be a release of emotions. However, after the grief energies have run their course, even during, we can connect with our love ones to feel their love, gratitude and presence.

Constant Change

Everything in the Universe is supporting our ascension into our Souls capacity as we continually move through the changes that must take place. The celestial bodies that dance with us are helping us to rid the ego’s negative residuals that weigh us down. The future we have dreamed of is already ours, it is here, but we haven’t fully connected to it. Our conscious awareness and choice must be constant. Our willingness to surrender what no longer serves us must be diligent.

The unconscious issues that prevent our forward movement are triggered with events such as the eclipse we are currently encountering, along with the harmonious and difficult alignments of our planets that are our dance partners.

When you are doing your work, such as being honest with yourself and taking responsibility of the new choices and releases you must make – these difficult planetary alignments will not affect you as much as someone who refuses to give up their self defeating ways.

We must give up the rigid beliefs we have clung, so that we may experience the Flowing and cleansing nature of our Soul. The more we let go of who we are not, the quicker we recognize who we are meant to be.

New Reality

All that you have asked for and many things you have been gifted are within your grasp. The only thing that prevents your physical connection is your own perceptions and beliefs. You have incredible power, you are a Creator. You are the one who must align yourself with your expanded and brilliant Truth – then, you will find yourself in the Reality fit for Divine Royalty.

In Closing

The times are difficult to say the least. However, with a little tweaking you can change your trajectory and begin to experience your life as the amazing and transformative journey it is meant to be.

My services are always available to you. I utilize many tools, such as shamanic journeys to help shift perceptions and enhance consciousness. The counseling and coaching I provide opens your mind and connects you to what your heart knows is possible. My energetic healing services help to clear the lower frequencies of your past, and unite you with your Divine Soul’s Essence and Truth.

My meditation classes are designed to teach and assist your internal connection into your heart space – the doorway to your Soul and future. My monthly empowerment classes inform your mind and give you valuable new tools to practice what you have learned.

My mission here is to create what is possible and show others how to achieve what is in their heart. I wish for each one of you to experience the dreams your heart is reaching for!

Reiki for Animals

By Linda Epstein 

Reiki is an Energetic Modality that can bring your animal companion to a place of wellness and contentment.

Our animal companions are a beautiful gift to us, a gift of unconditional love. We, in return, desire to support their well being for many years of healthy living, by providing a healthy diet, lots of snuggles, and belly rubs. But there will come a time when they need healing care, and Reiki along with Integrative Medicine will provide the healing for illness and injury.

By offering Reiki to our animal companions, we are opening our heart, having compassion and inviting the animals to share that sacred space with us. Reiki is based on the idea that all living beings have life energy flowing through them. When their vital life force is high, your pets are healthy, more relaxed, and less likely to get sick. When the life force is low, they’ll often be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness.

Animals, are naturally receptive to the Reiki energy and tend to gravitate towards it readily. Some pets may initially prefer to experience the energy from a slight distance, rather than having the practitioner’s hands directly on them.

Reiki sessions for pets typically last 15-30 minutes. The frequency of sessions depends entirely on the animal’s receptivity. Some health issues can be resolved in two or three sessions, chronic issues, or long term illnesses, may take ongoing sessions on a recurring basis..

Here are just a few benefits that animals can experience from Reiki sessions:

• Enhances overall well-being. Just like people, even healthy pets can have occasional physical, emotional and mental imbalances that, if left untreated, can manifest as illness. Periodic Reiki treatments can help maintain your pet’s natural state of well-being and balance.

• Strengthens the immune system for cancer therapies. Cancer therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation present stress to an already compromised immune system. Reiki strengthens the immune system to better deal with this additional stress. It helps alleviate or prevent the side effects of conventional cancer treatments and provides pain relief.

• Accelerates healing following surgery or illness. Reiki can alleviate and prevent side effects of conventional medications such as pain killers and antibiotics, anesthesia, and provides pain relief and relaxation to facilitate and enhance the body’s natural healing response.

• Increases trust and bonding between you and your pet. People and pets often mirror each others’ physical and emotional states. Because of the deep bond shared between a pet and his human, animals sometimes take on their person’s problems in an attempt to heal
them. For optimum healing, joint treatments for people and their pets can often be beneficial.

• Can help with behavior issues by promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
 Many behavior issues are caused by stress. Reiki can have a calming effect on the pet.

• Reiki is extremely beneficial for animals with a history of abuse. The gentle touch and the energy can help restore trust in animals who have learned to associate touch with being hurt.

• Reiki is a wonderful way to facilitate the transition for terminally ill animals and their owners. Often, animals will not allow themselves to transition because they intuitively feel that their person is not ready to let them go. Joint Reiki treatments for the pet and his or her person can help both through this difficult time by enhancing the bond and allowing a gentle transition.

Reiki can be given in person or long distance, through the principles of Quantum Physics. Reiki is non-invasive and a wonderful way to show your love to your animal.

Greenleaf Happenings June 2018 – Release & Live

Changes, changes, changes! We are in the middle of the year as we approach the Summer Solstice. This is a pivotal point in our process – walking the edges of our past, present, and opening future.

So much is moving into our realm of possibilities, as we are being purged of everything that needs to be resolved. Whether we like it or not, it is happening. Our internal Divine compass is pointing Home, pushing us through everything we haven’t resolved. All fear and forms of resistance are triggered as our internal vibration heightens and takes us into Creations Flow.

Wonderful things have been prepared for us, but the path for them must be cleared. There is no room for limiting fears. All thoughts, beliefs, and formations in our lives that vibrate lower than our hearts true knowing is being transformed.

At this point, the divine goals you choose before you incarnated are overriding your ego’s will. Many feel very heavy and tired, because we are done with our old reality. The party is over and it’s time to go Home. However, many still are not aligned with Home. Home is the embodiment of the Soul. My book “Re-Entering Eden” describes this as coming Home to the Paradise within. This Paradise is your union with your Soul’s reality, while in body. It is a return to Self.

So, you may feel and think, “I can’t see or feel anything else in my future, I have no more desire here, I feel….done.” What you are the experiencing is the end of the old 3D reality. If you are not working toward your connection with your newly opening 5D reality (through Soul embodiment), you will think it is time to die.  In fact, if you refuse to connect to your True Reality, you may very well end your life. We have already witnessed many suicides of late. If these individuals were connecting to their Internal Soul’s Reality, most likely, they would still be here, with joy filling their hearts.

It is not easy to release the past. Everyone is having a hard time moving forward in a variety of ways. However, if you are conscious and working with the transformation happening, you will witness amazing events unlike any other. These transformative times are showing up in everyone’s lives in extraordinary ways.

My Ti

I’d like to share with you an amazing journey my dog Titania has been traveling with me. Titania was a gift from spirit. I was given her name 2 weeks before I realized whose name it would belong to. With no intention of getting a puppy, we came face to face.  I quickly understood that this fearless queenly spirit was Titania.

Over the years, this bright little being helped me to realize and heal many issues within myself. This actually is the true purpose of our beloved animal companions – to mirror what we refuse to see and heal.

Titania helped me reconnect to my joy. She got me to loosen up and have some fun. She did things like, fearlessly running like the wind in the forest, and needled me until I laughed. Oh, and she does smile!

Titania is now 13 years old. However, 3 years ago, I was told she only had a few weeks to live. With holistic care, energetic healing, love and faith, she cheated her earthly demise. However, this month, Titania has been moving closer to transition. As she deteriorates physically, there is a message that is continually whispered into my ear….”anything is possible.” My companion is still teaching me – “be fearless in your expression, stand in your power” and “never believe what your eyes perceive.”

According to our ego’s old reality, it is against the odds that Titania can survive beyond this day. But, Titania still chooses to live. She is still pushing me to change the perception of this physical reality. Titania is challenging me; by handing the scepter of my power toward me – to create a better reality, and never stop believing, because anything is possible.

In & Out

In one way or another, everyone is walking the edge between life and death. There is nowhere to hide. Each of you must face what haunts you – it is the only way forward. It is the only way you can enter a new and fearless reality.

The Summer Solstice is a time of harvest, letting go, and preparing to go within. This energy supports us greatly, as does the entire Universe. Everything is designed to unearth what is hidden, so the door may  open, for your transformation into what can be.

My story depicts the scenario playing out in everyone’s life – it is time to wake up, let go of the limiting past and accept your power; your innate ability to create a wondrous reality – from within.

The Emotional Freedom Technique for Animals

By Linda Epstein

Those of us who have animal companions as part of our family, are always desiring to
find ways to help our pets have a healthy, happy, and fulfilling life while living with us.

The Emotional Freedom Technique, founded by Gary Craig, is used worldwide to help
man and animal to achieve a healthy life. EFT is a simple, but effective method for
creating positive changes for animals who may suffer from phobias. EFT has helped
rescued animals recover from the emotional traumas, they may have suffered prior to
being rescued. Other issues that EFT can help: Behavioral issues, relieving anxiety,
emotional issues, fear and health issues.

EFT is not a replacement for qualified medical care, but it can be an important adjunct
to the animal’s healing protocol. EFT is not invasive and is a simple procedure of
tapping on certain points on the body. The beauty of this modality is, if an animal is not
inclined to be touched, a surrogate can be used and the technique can be accomplished
via distance.

Animals are similar to humans and store emotional information as memories throughout
their bodies. These memories are accumulated throughout their lives and stored in
their, “metaphorical database.” So when an animal has experiences, good or bad,
those experiences, along with the emotions are stored in that database.

For example: a puppy received rough handling at the hands of a male. There is an
imprint of the male and the emotions that the puppy felt when handled by the male. The
next time the puppy may encounter a male, his subconscious begins to go thru the
“database,” to see what stored memories there are, about males.

The puppy is then reminded about the rough handling and begins to feel threatened and
withdraws, barks, or whines as the male continues to approach him. Now, this is a
different male, but right now all the puppy is sensing from the subconscious is, “danger,
danger.”

Physically, what is going on in the puppy’s body is energetic stagnation. When we have
energetic blockages, (negative emotions) it affects the physical body in a negative way.
EFT works to “tap” out those negative emotions and neutralize those negative emotions
that are in the metaphorical database.

During or after an EFT session, the animals will often go and lay down and rest
peacefully, or, it may take a while for the body to process the information before the
blockage is released.

Learning how to perform EFT, so you can apply it to your animal will help increase the
bond of love and understanding between the two of you, and give you the tools to help
your animal to achieve a life filled with love and harmony.

Greenleaf Happenings May 2018 – Stepping into Your New Truth

Wow! Is it safe to come out yet? Yes, as difficult as the last two months have been, we are going to be able to breathe a little easier. However, there is still much internal work to do as we learn how to align our minds with the new reality seeded within our hearts.

March into April, we moved into a very deep state of transformation. Downloads, uploads, cleansings, rewiring at a very rapid pace. We were changed – the cells of our body were transformed, and our minds were cleared of many old structures. We have been prepared to enter a new vibrational reality.

Even though much of the old energy is gone, remnants will still filter through our physical body through discomfort and colds. Memories can still do a bit of a “replay” as we see them continue to move their way to the transformation process. Our emotions will surface as we see your past in a brand new way.

Many feel like they’ve stepped into the twilight zone as nothing seems the same. That’s because everything is different and the world will begin to reflect this difference as we continue on our exciting journey.

New Paths

With all that has transpired energetically, you are being prompted to choose again. Clarity will help us see what works and what does not. Making choices that free you from decisions you made in the past, clears the way for new paths now available. Don’t worry about what’s next. Just decide what gives you a sense of fulfillment and happiness, and what burdens you. When you become clear, your new path will be seen.

This is a 7 (5 + 2018/11=16/7) universal month, so this tells us that the choices we make must come from within our heart. It’s time to believe in ourselves.

Coaching or Energetic Session Special!

This is a time when we are pushed to come back Home to our Selves. This can be a confusing and challenging time for many, so I’ve been guided to offer a special price for Spiritual Coaching and Energetic Sessions for the month of May. $77.00 for one hour,

May Classes

This Tuesday’s SHIFT class – We are going to talk about how our current energy shifts are supporting us like never before to claim our dreams and destines. Come to class ready to let go of more layers of your unconscious choices and claim your new reality and destiny. We will have a special exercise to help release the limitations of your past, and solidify your chosen reality. As always, we will also have a group blessing for humanity and Mother Earth. If you wish to attend, please sign up!

These SHIFT classes are a space where you are supported in your growth and continue what you’ve learned in past classes. The main focus is always “what are you creating in your new reality?”

Journey Night is another special offering that involves 2 or more shamanic journeys. No experience is needed for these gatherings. Bring your open mind, heart and willingness to experience yourself and your world in a whole new perspective and light. Each month we have a theme we work with. The month of May will ride the waves of the current energies into our enhanced clarity and possible choices available.

The challenge each of our Souls is pushing us toward is to consciously embody our authentic or Souls truth, so that we may become the Masters we are here to be. The basic, heart centered Meditations I’ve been teaching for the past few years, is offered every 4th Tuesday from 7-8 pm, and is followed by a deepening of experience with Soul Fusion, from 8-9 pm.

To assist with finding the missing or forgotten pieces of self, I am teaching Facing Your Fears Thursday, May 24. This class addresses the reasons we lost touch with who we truly are, due to the fears we accepted as our truth.

The Benefits of Shamanic Journeying

Why should you consider Shamanic Journeying? Well, there are many reasons and benefits for anyone willing to take a leap of faith.

The experience of Shamanic Journeying is quite extraordinary as it lifts you out of what you think you know to provide clearer perspectives. This is what happens when you trust and allow the Shamanic drumming of a knowledgeable practitioner to open the door to a reality that is outside of the egoic programs, beliefs and patterns held within the mind and body.

This practice brings you into what is known as “non-ordinary reality.” In actuality, your non-ordinary reality is the realm of your Soul. Your Soul or Authentic Self is not bound by time and the containers your physical or “ordinary reality” create. This means you can get a birds-eye view of your life’s circumstances and the people sharing this life with you. From this objective state, you can see the truth behind your circumstances. You can also see the possibilities that are available.

Since Shamanic Journeying is not dictated by time, you can retrieve information and understanding from your past, present or future. You can also do a great deal of healing of what was or have a complete shift in your perception that is so profound that it changes your path. A tremendous field of possibilities is available to you – what your choices are and can be.

As you can imagine, this is a tremendous tool, which I utilize often in coaching sessions. Because this kind of experience is so powerful, I decided to provide this opportunity in a group setting each month.

Journey Night

Every 4 weeks on Tuesdays, I open my space for anyone who wishes to learn, be supported and experience these powerful Journeys. Each month, I offer a specific topic or point of focus.

During each Journey Night, you can expect:

  • Discussion & guidance upon a chosen topic
  • Multiple Shamanic Journeys
  • Journaling & Sharing of experiences (If desired)
  • Q & A

The cost is $22.00 per class.

Check Events Calendar for each months time, date and topic.

 

There Are No Victims Here

Things don’t happen to you, they happen for you. This means that everything in your world is helping you realize something about yourself. Your world reflects what is beautiful and special about you, but it also mirrors what is keeping you from realizing how amazing you really are.

Think about it – what do most people focus on? Problems. People have become so attached to what is wrong; they can’t see the amazing possibilities that surround them. This keeps many individuals stuck, asking “why can’t I move forward, why does this keep happening, why, why, why? They fail to realize that what’s wrong can actually help them understand how to make things right.

To come into a state of resolution, the first thing that must change is where one’s focus is being drawn. By acknowledging there is a problem, then taking responsibility by focusing on an inward resolution, the door to possibilities opens. It is through an internal shift in perception that this change takes place.

Because we live in a dualistic reality, there will always be two choices from which we can live. However, even though these realities are opposites; one is a positive, loving experience, and the other is a negative and fear based existence – they ultimately serve one another.

Black & White

The negative or fear based reality is where we gain knowledge, as it also increases our compassion and understanding. The negative reality is also called the ego’s reality. The difficult and traumatic events developed out of the ego’s reality effects multiple levels of our personal life. These levels are where growth and healing are taking place. In order to move forward into our positive, loving reality and remain there consistently, we will always return to the scene of the misalignment, transgression – or injury that began our sojourn. Where the initial incident took place, is where the transformation is also made. We cannot fully experience our loving and empowered reality until we finish resolving what took us from this existence in the first place. It becomes our mission as we move into the final stage of mastery.

However, to gain the courage and clarity needed to transform something negative, we must unite with the loving and positive reality of our Soul’s Truth. We then experience a back and forth process between realities, until the point of compassion is reached – toward self and all involved. Clarity and the heightened vibration of the loving reality within the self transform the barriers, which the unresolved issue created.

The desire for the positive reality in which our heart knows is true begins to beckon.  The journey Home to our greater truth circles around and around what we have been conditioned to deny- and the brilliance we left behind.

Claiming Your Freedom

As we come closer to the point of completion toward our Soul’s chosen journey, an awakening begins deep within the self. We make new choices. The heightened frequency of our choice to follow a positive path also triggers the reasons we are not already living it. In this way, we are forced to resolve our internal blocks that negate our chosen reality.

Like everyone else, we live the majority of our life on autopilot – unconscious of the choices that prevent our forward movement. However, the repressed issues and unconscious behaviors that don’t line up with what we are choosing must surface.

The reason our greatest adversaries are also our greatest teachers is because they trigger unconscious behaviors such as weaknesses, erroneous beliefs that are the product of old wounds that we never healed. When we think less of ourselves, how can we rise into our true brilliance and potential? People who bully or aggravate us are actually doing us a favor – they push us to the point that we forget about our internal wounds long enough to force ourselves off the floor. Surprised by the powerful surge we never knew we had, we then realize how wrong we were – about ourselves. The victim then becomes the grateful victor.

Our outer world will always trigger things we are not aware is blocking our path forward. These triggers are always directed within the self; directing us to the blocks we created.

We are never a victim. The circumstances of our lives were chosen before we arrived – by us. These are challenges that give us the opportunity to reclaim what we learned to deny. Now, the only way to finish our old journey and enter a new and loving one requires us to look in the mirror, release our resistance (fears) and take full responsibility for all that has happened. Then love it, thank it and let it go.

Ultimately, every situation, relationship, choice, mistake is designed to help you heal and grow.  Your life is and has always been up to you. Your awareness and internal strength is what brings you to your ultimate truth – you are powerful beyond measure.

Abundant Blessings,

Carolyn M. Greenleaf

 

Greenleaf Happenings February 2018 – Love in Balance

 

This month, we are being prompted in many ways to let go of old containers, stand in our truth, claim our power and create an amazing new reality. All that prevents our balanced internal relationship with our masculine and feminine is rising to our attention. A new foundation is in process – it is time to build.

We’ve just experienced a rare total Lunar Eclipse that has left ripple effects, touching deep within – moving more misalignments to the surface for transformation. It’s an uncomfortable feeling, but it will soon pass. Surrender, surrender, surrender. The old containers and foundations are crumbling – making it possible to birth our wondrous future.

We will also experience a Solar Eclipse February 15th in freedom loving Aquarius. This will inspire us with brilliant ideas and solutions. However, these new energies would not reach our awareness if not for the clearing of the Lunar Eclipse. Part of all this clearing and rejuvenating is due to a new balance, and equality coming into our reality.

Two Shall Become One

The Feminine aspect of our power is rising in all ways – she will be heard and her power will be known.  The Goddess energy within is moving front and center in our lives. It is time for the balance of the Masculine and Feminine to return into their harmonious states – within all that exists.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, hearts must open to allow all that is Divine within our Masculine and Feminine to repair our disconnections with our deeper truths toward ourselves and others. However, these deep truths have always existed – within.

As we reintegrate our awakening internal truths, the collapse of the old perceptions and their foundations must fall. Our Internal truths are our Souls true reality rising and releasing the restrictive containers of time. The Soul lives in the Now Moment.

The collapse of time can be felt as the past filters through you – not to relive, but to appreciate what was and let it go. The past brought many opportunities to enhance your knowledge and increase your Souls wisdom. All that has transpired was ultimately in service of love, and this deep knowing is also part of the filtering process as the past rises through you.

As the lower vibrations of the past rise up through the higher vibration you now embody – the past is transformed into the wisdom it was meant to provide. When you allow the full release, the love that had always existed even in your darkest of days also rises and replaces what you thought was lost. Love is forever.

Greenleaf Happenings 2018 – A Year of Inspiration & Mastery

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to 2018! Now, we enter phase 2 of the Universes Plan! In 2017, many new things began to move into place in our 10/1 year. Many things were also revealed because they stood in the way of our progress. A great number of people also felt like they were left with a cliff hanger as 2017 came to a close. Now, we find ourselves stepping into the new land we’ve been preparing, asking what’s next. The answer – Mastery!

This year will roll out the choices you made in 2017. Last year, you were presented with several potentials that surfaced throughout the year – almost like a sampling of what is available. Now, as 2018 opens, your choices will move forward and into the grounding stages of your new reality. You are also destined to be the Inspiring Master you truly are.

2018 is an 11 year, which is a Master Number! This energy brings out the true and inspiring leader within all. For those who have done their inner work, it will feel very empowering. However, for those who still believe they are victims in some way and resist the need to heal their internal issues – it will be uncomfortable and challenging.

Magical Reunification

To get a complete picture, let’s look at the energy of the 2, which is the sum of 1+1 (11). The energy of 2 will push you to cooperate with everyone and everything around you, as well as within yourself. You will need to come to the conclusion that there are no true enemies within you or your outer world. All has been a reflection, a play ground in which to learn and grow. Compassion and understanding must be exercised toward self and those who push your buttons. Everyone you think is against you is actually helping you to heal something within yourself. This is what pushes you – into who you have the capacity to be.

This is a reconnection process – to move from the old dualistic reality of separation from self to your own reunification, and authentic truths. Part of your truth is that you are and have always been a whole and wondrous Being of Creation. You are capable of so much more that you have allowed yourself to realize – and yes, it can be scary, because it’s big. You are a Big deal.

What does it mean to step into your Mastery?

Stepping into your Mastery means you must go beyond what you thought your limitations were. It means tuning into what your heart and gut says you can do, instead of what the media, friends, family or society has told you. The outside world has held you back, because they hold themselves back – it’s the way humanity became wired. But now it is time to see things for what they really are – lessons and opportunities to heal and grow. As you do, you are able to lead the way for others, through your bold, inspiring actions.

You have the right to be… you. The only one who can prevent you from reaching your hearts true goals and potential – is you. Claiming your Mastery means taking full responsibility for your life, and in doing so, you realize the power you have – to change, not only yourself, but your world!

Stability in the Cosmos!

For the first couple months of the year, we’ve got forward moving planets! Plus, Saturn just moved into its own comfy home or zodiac sign of Capricorn. Saturn is about grounding our reality with balance and stability – Yes! Yes! Yes!

Take this opportunity to move forward in ways you may not have felt comfortable doing before. The timing is ripe to finally make things happen, to be heard, noticed and make a difference. Dare to inspire the world with your brilliance!

You are not Alone

For those who need assistance or guidance to resolve the internal blocks that thwart forward movement, I am here to help you. When we make big changes that go against the status quo, support is an invaluable tool on our journey. This is why I’ve developed a few options that can fill some needs.

For group settings, I have an offering of classes and gatherings that augment forward movement through reunification with ones internal wisdoms. See class listings below.

For individual or private help, I am able to coach, guide and teach methods that facilities internal reconnection and healing on multiple levels. For more information, email me at: carolyn@greenleafhealin.com or visit my Coaching and Energy Healing pages.

I also provide a variety of readings that help trigger internal connection and provide valuable information. Yearly Reports are especially helpful to foresee some upcoming probabilities in your charts.

These Meditations are designed to help participants reconnect with their Souls Essence, Reality and Divine Truth. This natural alliance and source of knowledge and wisdom is integrated in a step by step process.

Each month, you will move into a deeper relationship and connection with your deepest, forgotten and truest Self. It is time to go beyond what you thought you knew about yourselves, and into the Divine Truth of your true inheritance and identity.

This will increase your capacity to hold the expanded and higher frequency of your Soul, while grounding the experience in your physical body. As this happens, the mind begins to increase its ability to grasp the shifting perceptions.

Offerings of information and experience, along with group sharing, support and encouragement provides an ideal space for growth.

Movie Night! Rescheduled

Finding Joe

Thursday 1/19 @ 7-9 pm in Cary IL

Movie & Discussion, plus popcorn and iced tea! Only $5 per person. You must sign up to attend!

This is an amazing movie I just watched while convalescing my back. Which is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. This movie is about the Hero’s Journey each one of you is on and how you can come full circle while following your bliss and moving through the fears that block you. This mind blowing movie is in perfect timing as we move into a new year and cycle.

“Rooted in deeply personal accounts and timeless stories, FINDING JOE shows how Campbell’s work is relevant and essential in today’s world and how it provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life-or as Campbell would simply state, how to “follow your bliss”.

The film features interviews with visionaries from a variety of fields including Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Tony Hawk, Rashida Jones, Laird Hamilton, Robert Walter, Robin Sharma, Catherine Hardwicke, Sir Ken Robinson, Akiva Goldsman and many more.

While studying myths, and writing on the human experience, Joseph Campbell was a professor at Sarah Lawrence College for 38 years. His seminal work, “A Hero with a Thousand Faces” was published in 1949 and greatly influenced generations of artists and writers, including Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison, Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas, Jerry Garcia and others.”

 

In Closing…

I wish you a year full of wonder and joy as you step into the knowing of yourself and your capacity to mold a reality that your heart rejoices!

Abundant Blessings,

Greenleaf Happenings December 2017 – Hello Love

Hello Everyone!

Here we go, the last month of 2017! Wow, so much has shifted in so many ways! I’ve recently been inspired to create some new things to assist forward movement as things really move… But first, lets tune into what’s happening!

November was the Master number 11, which inspired us to find the Master within ourselves who could Light the way, even during the darkest of days. This month, we build upon all that Inspired us….forward. December 2017 (12 + 10 (2017) = 22; the Master Builder. Now, we are working toward grounding our higher ideals into our reality. However, we are also in a time of cycles converging as the old moves through us for release and the new looks for acceptance.

Parallel Realities

There is a mixed bag of sorts. I am referring to what sometimes feels like 2 worlds or realties existing within, as we stand between 2 cycles.

How many of you have been feeling it? Abundance, bliss, joy brought on by high frequencies of love that continue to expand, along with; disappointment, sadness, financial lack….. confusing right?! For clarity, I pulled out some oracle cards. The first message was Cleansing – yes, this is clearly happening! The second message showed: famine and defeated, third; New Beginnings and Children. Seeing something obvious, I put Defeated next to New Beginnings and Famine next to Children, which clearly showed the two extreme polarities in play right now. Our past cycles of lack and dis-empowerment are leaving us in a big and permanent way!

So, it’s important to stay strong in what you are feeling within your heart – your bounty is but a thought away. The energy around this is fantastic, as it is a culmination of the years we had dreamed of a joyful reality.

Astrologically, we can see how the planets are assisting the transformation of our reality. Currently, we are swept up in Mercury’s retrograde of review – but this time it’s monumental as we make a new choice that ends many cycles of the past!  Everything is forced to the surface in unprecedented ways. Every uncomfortable, painful and deceitful situations from the past is moving through and out each one of us. All is coming to Light. This is a time of new decisions and final resolutions. How will you move forward?

Saturn also moves into its natural (home) zodiac sign of Capricorn. This brings a comfortable stability with the reality we are choosing to ground into our physical life. Saturn’s also conjunct the Galactic Center. This brings expansion in every way. As we are in Sagittarius, what is expanded is the truth that has been buried, denied or forgotten. On the physical realm, both truth and lies are unearthing as Jupiter expands the energies of transformation in Scorpio – touching everything we have been taught to fear; death, sex, money and power. This helps us to resolve the past ways and taboos, so we may rise up, healed and ready to move forward into a life that is based upon a higher internal truth.

Disappointments of unrealized goals, guilt that you didn’t do enough, etc. are also surfacing. These are old memories, thoughts and feelings of a past that is completing its journey, by helping you regurgitate what will not work in your new cycle.

As I feel residuals of past difficulties surface within myself, I’m also getting messages from my Guides and Angels of great abundance and happiness that will be experienced in ways, which are unimaginable. I have to be honest; at times it is hard to image everything changing when we’ve waited so long.  However, We are being asked to trust again. Sometimes it feels like being caught between a rock and a hard place – we must be open hearted to receive our bounty of wonderful manifestations, but the ego self feels this is a risky proposition – to be open and vulnerable. This is where trust comes in.

Trust issues resulted from our outer worlds experiences. So, I am suggesting that you trust in your Heart, your Soul, your Team of Guides and Angles and the Divine Source from which you were born.

Exercise

It’s really important to keep your focus on the wonderful surprises and gifts that are in store for you. When you let go of what was, be sure to open yourself to what can now be.

Mantra: “I Believe in the Abundance of Love that is within my Heart, and I gladly accept the wonderful things and experiences that are in tune with this Abundance.”

Amends

Don’t be surprised if people from your past surface and offer to help you. Those who wronged others are feeling a push to amend for their mistakes, so accepting something helpful (with no strings attached) helps them move forward as it also helps you to let go of old hurts and angers. This opens the door for both parties to complete their healing process.

This happened to me and I’m surprised at the internal shift it’s created. By allowing an old and negative connection to do some nice things, resolution and healing is clearing the way in both our lives. Remember, our ability to accept the wonderful life of our dreams is limited by what we allow into our lives now.  It is time to allow resolution and forgiveness – without it, we are trapped in the past.
