Greenleaf Happenings November 2017 ~ Higher Connections

November is a month of many opportunities – to make new connections and mend old ones. These connections pertain to both, self and others, who you are connected. This is a time to look for the inspiration within these connections you have yet to notice. This month also serves as a gateway to a deepening of intent, clarity and possibilities.

Sacred Unity

If we look at the Universal number for this month and year (11+2017/10) we get the sum 21. Typically, you would add the 2 and 1 together to focus on their sum of 3, which I will do. However, there is a revelation within the 21. I believe this pair of numbers to be sacred and significant, as they indicate unity. 2 parts join to become 1. Within this unity, something else is born; resembled within the 3. This is a happy union – the number 3 indicates BEing in the United and Pure Presence of Divine Self and all that has made it possible; including unlimited possibilities with All. Yes, a lot for the mind to take in.

This makes the number 3 an expression of one’s creativity, authenticity and joy. This is an appropriate number to focus upon this month as we celebrate Thanksgiving. A day of gratitude and joining together provides an opportunity for internal and external growth. Take time to embrace what this day of Thanks has to offer both spiritually and physically.

Going Deep

With Jupiter in Scorpio for the next 12 months, we will be forced into the deep abyss of our psyche, where forgotten wounds will be unearthed in an effort to be healed.   This is a good thing! Intense yes, difficult yes, rewarding defiantly! This is preparing us for the dreams looking for expression within our hearts. The next 12 months will help us move into a higher frequency/energy, as we clear the way to experience our expanded future that Jupiter in Sagittarius (October 2018-November 2019) will usher in. Jupiter is returning home, as it is the ruling planet of Sagittarius – the zodiac of higher truth, ideals and freedom to express our dreams.  However, we don’t have to wait until next year to experience the ideals Sagittarius and Jupiter represent. Time is continuing to shift as the timelines of our past present and future converge. We are able to experience the hopes and dreams we believe to be in our future, now. Miracles are upon us.

Big Changes

I’m anticipating some very big changes for many. We are about to enter the 11:11 doorway of new beginnings and elevated frequencies.  This year, it will be 11:11:1 = 5. The 5 indicates changes – evolutionary changes! The 11:11 asks us to consciously claim our Mastery by utilizing and creating the opportunities to do so on the physical plane. We are being asked to step into our Divine Truth as the Magical Beings of Creation we truly are.  The 1 is a number of leadership, moving forward, new beginnings and unity. 11 is a Master number symbolizing consciousness, bearer of Divine Light, inspiration and new vision. The 5 is also Gevurah; the Divine Feminine and the Birther of Creation.

When we look at the significance of this, along with the unifying energy of this month, many will advance into the dreams & desires they have aligned themselves with.   There is great potential here! Prepare yourselves for 11/11 by focusing on the joy of having what your heart has been guiding you towards. If you don’t know what that is, then just focus on gratitude, love, joy. The important thing is to tap into your passion, and heighten your energetic frequency. Then, be conscious of what begins to happen, while remaining in the high vibration you’ve been playing in. The more you are able to remain in the heightened frequency, the greater your gifts will be.

Doorway of Blessings

This is an offering, a blessing you may wish to repeat as often as you wish, to help you embrace the opportunities upon you…

“I choose to align with the loving and abundant frequency of my Soul. I also accept the abundance of gifts ready for me as I step forward into the destiny my heart has beckoned. I am grateful for all that has transpired, all that is and all that can be. So Be It”

  • The Nature of Energy
  • Law of Vibration
  • Law of Correspondence
  • Awareness of the energetic vibrations within the self
  • Changing the frequency of your body & minds vibrational blueprint

For more information, click: SHIFT  All are welcome to join us at anytime! You must sign up to attend at: carolyn@greenleafhealing.com

In Closing…

This month promises to be what you make of it. The responsibility is all yours….to embody joy, gratitude and love, or focus on the pains of the past. The past is done; don’t let it haunt you needlessly. It is time to responsibly resolve the past and let it go. Those who fail to do so are involved in the horrific events we still see today. Yes, humanity is still healing, but we must focus upon rising, not dwelling.

I have a very special Gift in my life. I have a beautiful granddaughter who reminds me of how precious each and every moment really is. Let’s all take time to notice the beauty, love and abundance that surrounds us and stay in the energy of gratitude….Always.

Abundant Blessings,

Carolyn M. Greenleaf

Greenleaf Happenings June 2017 – Coming Together

 

Greetings!

It’s been a very busy spring for me. It’s all good, as wonderful projects are flourishing and opportunities abound! It’s amazing what happens, when we get out of our own way! But when we do, the flood gates begin to open. The more we let go of what was, the reality our Soul has been preparing steps in. I will speak more about this in July during my speech at the upcoming Expo!

Unity

The overall sense that continues to grow more pervasive and paramount in our reality is the need to unite. As we continue to evolve who we are and who we are becoming, we will find that cooperation and joining forces will be vital to our forward movement.

We are growing into our authentic truth, and within that truth is unity, connection, Oneness.  The only support our ego’s reality will receive is from the lower vibrating reality of which it resides. However, as our true essence emerges within each one of us, we sense that things are very different. What’s different you ask? Well, for starters we will feel the support of the Universe or Creation when we think in terms of joining talents, space and/or experience with others. We will also feel an increased surge of warmth that comes from within our heart, when we reach out to others and support them in ways that are not selfish, but feels right. If we give into to these feelings or urges without analyzing them in our mind, we will grow in ways our mind has yet to understand. The more we trust that very real feeling from within, the more we will see it take form in our outer reality.

Yes, you may have heard about the laws of creation/energy for many years, but now, there is a very thin line between understanding the concept and feeling this internal knowing of how creation works.

When we let go of what we think we know, including our judgments and need to be right – the leap forward is smaller than ever. This is because we are already within our evolved reality, but inside a little bubble that contains our old reality. This is where we witness extremes. These experiences include tremendous degrees of love and devastating experiences of an old world ending. The devastation is experienced because we are still holding on to what our mind thinks is normal and what is known.

The terror attacks are reflecting the relentless ego mind where twisted and distorted views and beliefs are surfacing for a reality check, as well as resolution and a release of what is so harmful to self and others.

It is so very important to not let your angry or fearful emotions linger. Instead, focus upon what is behind these feelings and heal them.  If you need assistance, I am available.

Solstice

Tuesday, June 20 at 11:24 pm CDT we cross another threshold along our sojourn. The summer solstice is an additional doorway and opportunity to experience and feel the magic of Nature and Creation surge forth from within. When you allow these sensations to surface, hold onto that power and begin using it by directing it toward your goals. Recommit, visualize the finished result and get excited. Your passion provides tremendous fuel for the formation of your dreams.

As we begin to follow the sun in the shortening of days, we are preparing for the next stage of our journey. Still building, growing and weeding the garden of our dreams it is also important to be in the moment. Whether you are moving into the summer or winter months, it is time to begin slowing down and appreciating what we have already accomplished and our loved ones we hold dear. The reality of our Soul requires balance. This is part of the Mastery we must obtain as our manifestations show up faster and faster.

Maintaining ones balance is achieved when we remember to return to Center. Within my meditation classes, this is a common theme. To visualize this, see yourself sitting in the center of a wagon wheel. You are the hub and the spokes represent the different areas and people in your life. When we ground ourselves within the hub of our wheel of life, we feel a peace and a mastery that begins to take hold. It is important to not let these areas in your life pull you out of your hub and out of this balance. It is equally important to maintain your boundaries with the people in your life. You need time to fill yourself with the essence and music of your Soul, because it allows you to show up fully for others and for yourself.

One of my projects! I am co-sponsoring & creating this exciting event!

This is a public event for those who wish to explore various holistic alternatives towards healing on many levels. There are many paths toward truth, healing and being. This Expo provides an arena for information, exploration, education, coming together and fun.

A Gift from Me to You:

In Closing…

This is an exciting time, if you allow it to be. Moving into our evolved reality is as simple as letting go. When we allow our Soul to step forward, we unite with this greater truth of who we really are. The only way fear can exist is if we let it. By dwelling in what was, we rob ourselves of what IS.

Abundant Blessings,

May 2017 Greenleaf Happenings – Metamorphosis

Hello Everyone!

Oh my, it’s been a rough few weeks. Just as many of you, I have been experiencing, deep states of cleansing triggered by the flu and cold viruses. Assisting us are the planetary bodies that move us into just the right frequencies that will bring to the surface all we are unaware for this stage. Each one of us is experiencing some level of chaos because this 1 year (2+0+1+7 = 10/1) is telling us we are on a new platform. However, we can’t bring an old house into the new. Each time we enter a new cycle, we must raise our vibration on every level of our being in order to match the heightened frequency of our new space.  Sounds serious! It is, but it is also a very special and sacred time.

Why?

This current stage of transformation began 2 years ago, within our 8th year (2015) as we initiated a deeper physical reunification with our Spiritual and Soul selves in profound ways.  The 8 represents a union of two worlds or bodies of energy. Think back to this time – what was happening in your life two years ago? What choices did you make, which areas in your life did you heal or began the process? Who did you meet? Who did you release?

Also, this month represents reunification. When we add 5 (May) to 1 (2017), we get 6. This is Tiferet (6) in ancient Cabala. Tiferet is the unifier. Within the physical self, Tiferet is located within the heart. The heart is the bridge that links our Higher Selves (Spirit/Soul) and our physical selves. This is why the practice of bringing our presence within the Heart Space is so important. From the position of our heart, we are able to align with our authentic or Soul self. This is where we can consciously feel, understand and communicate with this higher aspect of Self and every aspect of Creation.

Fusion

It’s important to consciously connect with the Higher aspects of Self so we many release the ego’s fear of what is happening. The fusion of our Greater Truth with our physical selves is a tenacious process. It is part of the Soul embodiment that is required for our new reality.

Challenging, confusing and painful symptoms always accompany the embodiment of a higher Soul aspect. This happens because our elevated aspects vibrate on a higher frequency, which also means the lower frequency of our physical body must rise. The new inhabiting frequency of self begins to clean house.  This transformation is being realized by all. Illnesses such as colds and flu’s are ways the body detox’s or release’s what no longer serves us. This detoxification happens on every level, including our physical, emotional and mental, even etheric bodies.

Our emotions surface as the past is released through us. Love is the only thing that is real, so all that is left within is the love created through the past; even if it was not realized at the time. This should give us a great deal of comfort as we tend to resist letting go of the past because a part of us believes we are leaving behind the special people involved.

When we allow the transformation to take place, this loving reality grows with us and helps us create the elevated reality our heart strives for through the direction of our Soul.

We can also suffer from brain fog as our mental states are being upgraded or rewired to encompass the understanding of our Soul. It is common to forget words or experience confusion as our frame of reference is being dismantled and advanced.  This is temporary.

Meeting your other aspects is also common as thought forms surface that don’t come from your current experience. It’s like there is another person inside you. Remembrances of other lives or timelines can flash through every level of your being. Again this is temporary as a union of Selves and rebalancing is also taking place.

Assistance

Our growth process involves moving beyond our ego’s grasp of reality. This cleansing through detoxification and reunification on multiple levels creates the openings for us to recognize and accept new thoughts that come from the reality we are calling forth.

Every aspect of Creation is helping us. This includes the planetary bodies that align their energies and frequencies to help shake things up and move problematic issues to the surface so they may be seen. We still have a great deal of unresolved or negative beliefs and issues that must surface so they can be healed.

Currently, we have assistance from 4 planets in retro movement: Mercury (until 5/4), Jupiter (until 6/10), Saturn (until 8/26) and Pluto (until 9/29). Mercury represents our mental states – how we are wired or programmed and how we communicate them. Mercury retro brings our ego’s reasoning into question. Jupiter is our expansive nature – where are we focused? Saturn is about structure – are our foundations stable and sound? Pluto says “I will transform all of these things that wreak havoc toward the formation of your future. “

Answer

There are periods of time that are more intense and difficult than others. This is one of those times. It is important to relinquish the emotions surfacing, especially the frustration felt during these trying times. Feel what you feel and if you sense the need, access the intelligence from your feelings, then let them go. Many times you will feel a rush of emotions come over you in waves. Release your resistance and just allow the Flow of your Soul to wash them through. The more you surrender your resistance, the quicker you will feel relief. Sometimes, I will say “thank you, I release you” to the energies surfacing.

When we honor this process, see our lives as precious and our experiences necessary for our unfolding future, we move into the wisdom of our Soul.

To assist you, I am offering you a suggestion to help you rise above the chaos you may find within yourselves.

Firstly; Move into the energy of Tiferet (within your heart). Allow the Embrace of unity, compassion, balance and unconditional love of Tiferet to fill you.

Secondly; Move your focus into your heart and say:

“I chose to embrace this moment and all of the energies moving through me. I accept the dark and the light of it – for it is who I truly am. I am all of it – I am One with every aspect of Creation. I am One with my Divine Truth and my physical experience. I honor all of my experiences for they have allowed me to heal my past, grow my wisdom and understand many things I did not know before. I choose the Oneness of my Being and embrace this sacred transformation taking place within me.”

If you need assistance, my services are available to you.

In Closing…

Keep in mind – the more intense the situation, the sweeter its resolve will be. Remember, we are dealing with opposites here. Everything is a flip side of a coin. Bad is good turned on its head for exploration.  Darkness is just places that have yet to open its doors to the Light within. Do not hold judgment within your body, heart or mind. Instead, go into your heart and call upon the wisdom of your Soul, for that is the only place where you will understand beyond what your mind thinks it knows.

I wish you all, Abundant Blessings of Peace, Love and Prosperity of all you hold dear.

Greenleaf Happenings March 2017 – Breaking Point of Liberation

March? What can I say? We’ve been up, we’ve been down, I’ve even started wearing a frown!

We’ve had an intense beginning this month as the eclipses of February’s far reach slapped us on the hinny while we tip toed into March, as we found we could not hide. Eclipses are always preparing us for something greater as we move deeper into the next stages. March; 3/2017 = 4. The energy of the number 4 is hard work and new foundations! These new foundations must now be deliberate and built upon community, connection and respect for all. However, before a new foundation is laid, the old must be dismantled, removed and transformed.

Everything is being reshaped in a myriad of ways, as we’ve been experiencing a great deal of change that is only intensifying in both joy and pain. The birth process into a new reality and creation is the most arduous process we could ever experience.  Just as we witness the joyous birth of a beautiful child – the labor of deliverance is extremely painful, yet it has within it, joy as its core. Each child born is a union of the opposites and matching components presented within his or her parents. This is what we are experiencing and birthing as individuals during an integration of all that is separate, yet also one.

Even though this is a 1 year, which represents a new cycle – it also represents the Oneness of which we are. It is also what our new cycle and reality is based upon. For this to happen – all that is separate, within and without must unite.

Polarity Integration

Some of you have heard about polarity integration. But many have not – so with this in mind, or not…from dark to light, up to down, forward then back, frustration to joy, fear to love….back and forth we go. This way, no that way, don’t forget me, love me too, peek-a-boo. Now you see me, oops, now you don’t. Can’t you find me or your way about? There I am, as are you, could it be… I am you?

This evolving reality we have been experiencing for the last 12,000+ years is based upon duality. To create a dualistic reality, there had to be opposites…polar opposites. In fact, the poles which this planet rotates upon represent our earthly energetic core in more ways than one. For instance, the pole of this earth maintains this planets polarity and unity. Each polar extreme is frozen (*symbolic of stillness with many treasures held within) and shares the same qualities in as many ways they are also different, yet forever linked – united through the core of this planet. We are also united within the core of one another as well as our expanded truth while we also hold varying degrees of perception, knowledge and wisdom.

When the poles of this earth change, you can bet we are changing too. The changes we are now experiencing is a reintegration or reunion of all that we thought was separated during our dualistic experience. The expanded *knowledge which we also separated from, as it was hidden from sight and mind is also erupting to the surface.  This is why there is a lot of movement and attention at our South Pole. Much was hidden in this region by highly evolved Beings before humanity fell into the darkness of separation and duality. The South Pole represents our base chakra – our physical reality and tribal/primal or original truths, which have been awakening.

As what was once separated, now reuniting; we are feeling, sensing, seeing many perceptions as if they are someone else’s, yet it is us who is having the experience. This uniting of separated (dualistic) energies however confusing is a fusion of sorts, yet it is not imprisonment. Each Soul who chose to experience this changing reality understood what had to take place – there was, nor ever have been force. The seemingly forceful experiences are due to karmic resolutions and healing.

New Season of Change

As everything is revealed during polarity integration, we also enter earth’s threshold to seasonal change. This month we move into the energy of birth with the Spring Equinox or its opposite Autumn Equinox, depending on where you live. Keep in mind, we are One with the Earth we call home – we reflect and are intimately connected to the changes within nature, earth, as well as ourselves. Since the seasons are opposite, according to where we live along the earth’s poles we also experience the same shift in cycles more intently as we integrate what we believe to be separate within ourselves. Within the point of separation, we also experience a union as the birth of new realizations and foundations. In addition we also release old beliefs and creations that no longer fit who we have become.

In Closing…

Our evolution is within the acceptance of all of who we are, as individuals and as the whole of humanity, earth and the universe.  When we experience the sparks of confrontation, it would benefit us greatly, to step into the stillness within, for expanded understanding of what is really happening. After all, we always have been and will forever be . . .One.

As I feel the time is right, I will continue to reveal more information regarding our polar connection and the advanced Beings associated with these regions and this part of our awakening process.

Greenleaf Happenings February 2017 – Birth Canal

Oh My! Is this really happening? Again? When will it end?!

Many of you may be asking these questions as uncomfortable feelings and situations have been surfacing for the past few weeks. We have been moving through a massive purging – one that effected me to the point of not being able to connect well enough to write. Hence this late newsletter and absence of my Inspirational quotes. After all, I am also having a human experience, walking through these changes with you, as all Teachers do.

When one cycle ends and another begins there is always an overlapping that forces us to release what no longer serves us as we also taste the sweetness of our new home. In a way, we are in a birth canal, experiencing the labor pains that are squeezing and pushing us from all sides.

He Said – She Said What?!#

As usual, major events are designed to trigger these responses and produce upheaval within the deepest recess of our psyche. This time, it was the election. The anger and a whole slew of other emotions and deep ancient memories woke up. The divisive nature of the US election reflected the moments where the roots of separation formed as a whole (from our state of Oneness) and as individuals. With it came tentacles of fear that created self doubts, confusion and anger.

This has created an excavation within every cell of our physical body as the densest of our yesteryears are rooted out and the Light of our Soul fills the empty cavities. Into the bone we go so we may transform our physical body to match our new reality of higher frequency and being.

As with all cleansings, one level affects all the rest. The changes on our physical level begin a chain reaction into our etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of self and vise versa. What happens to one aspect of us, affects all.

As we are at the threshold of a grand experience opening for us, we also have to move through this anger, fear, pain and memories that kept us from our greater truth so we may now move into the New Cycle now open to us.

Reclaiming

Last night, I decided to take a shamanic journey to ascertain some answers to the overload of negative emotions I was experiencing.   In this journey, I came face to face with a large hooded serpent that was similar to my size.  There was no fear, rather an acceptance of what was and what will always be. I then swallowed the entire serpent – a reunion of what was once separated. The serpent is an ancient teacher of great wisdom. However, when we created this dualistic/ego based reality, our Divine Truths became distorted as the experience of separation took place. Everything we fear now becomes our salvation. When we stop running and realize – we are one. The separated sense of self is our own doing, as we believed the ego’s view of the dualistic world we also created.

As we are moving through this immense healing stage, it is helpful to remember – we are One. Everything, everyone we have an issue with, we must awaken and heal these divisions. It is helpful to repeat this phrase “I am you, you are me.” Saying this has helped me move past my own egos judgment or need to condemn.

We have been coming full circle for many years, through karmic cleansings, tremendous purging of the past, recalibrating as we move deeper into our Awakening. The Universe has communicated through various forms, channels and teachers what was happening. Now, there is no more time to run and hide from the internal healing that must take place. Everything has been churned up so that we can see it, feel it and realize “I must resolve and heal this now.” We cannot take the low vibrating thoughts, beliefs and wounds of the past into the enhanced and brilliant reality we’ve been moving toward.

The old Souls who have been healing not only their own family (Soul & physical) lineages, are also healing multiple levels of humanities past, nature’s wounds and the residuals that permeate our planet. It is a bombardment of emotions, thoughts, memories and physical pain as the cells of our physical body and earth’s body releases everything holding us down. All ego densities have to go. For this, we must stop running, ignoring or suppressing all this “stuff” that’s surfacing. This chaos is the dismantling of everything that has held us to the old reality.

Eclipses of Salvation!

We are about to experience some divine and astrological assistance.   February 10, 2017 at 4:34 -8:53 pm CDT we will experience a very powerful and beneficial Lunar Eclipse in Leo’s Full Moon.

The alignment of planets during this Eclipse forms a Pentagram within a Rectangle. This will assist our internal cleansings on every level of our being as we enter this gateway and stand in the Fires of Leo’s domain. Courage will be rewarded as we release our resistance toward healing our internal divisions and transform what no longer serves us.

It is important to keep our eyes on the prize during this time. Our dreams are waiting for us, but we have to be willing to let go – completely so we may fall apart only to be reassembled like a new, upgraded version of who we are ready to be.

For more information about the Lunar Eclipse, you may wish to read: Lunar Eclipse 10 February 2017 Practical Magic by Jamie Partridge

We also have a New Moon Solar eclipse in Pisces on February 26, 2017. Pisces is the 12th house of the zodiac of Unity and Christ Consciousness. This energy moves us into a higher enlightened state of being and perception. What a wonderful way to begin our new line up of eclipses as we also step into a physical reality that will increasingly resemble the reflection of our Heart & Soul.

Classes

Change Series – 2 Responsibility of Change

 

There is a great deal to learn from the experience of duality, as expressed in my book Re-Entering Eden. Within a dualistic reality, we have the opportunity to experience much diversity, leading to tremendous internal and external growth. However, humanity has experienced the negative side of this dualistic opportunity for far too long. Our history has developed a very divisive reality in many cases. This divisiveness often blossoms into corruption in all its forms.

The height of these negative experiences is reflected in events such as the recent Presidential election in the US and all contested elections and battles for power around the world. As these events happen, we are then left to wonder – what happened to create such a bitter atmosphere or a sense of complete powerless toward affecting your outer reality?

Nevertheless, if we look at what this divisiveness created, we can utilize the wisdom it also offers. It is this wisdom that we must now develop, so we can create positive solutions. Divisiveness is ultimately designed to inspire positive change and unity.

Focus Forward

The only way for positive changes to take place, is by focusing on the form its transformation will make. We must keep our eyes on the prize. We must get our crayons out and create a whole new picture or blueprint of how this change will look and act. Then, we must focus on it and believe in its fruition.

“Where your attention goes, energy Flows.”

We’ve all heard this phrase. It means we are creative Beings who are forming our reality, in every moment.  Everything is energy – our thoughts, emotions, beliefs and our actions. This tells us – when we focus and complain about the crummy leadership in our lives without creating positive solutions, we recreate them again and again – as we play the victim. Blaming others does not solve problems. The only way for positive change to happen, is by taking full responsibility for the changes we can make today.

Changing Leadership

As I mentioned in the last video, the Orcas Wisdom says we must heal and unite our own internal dualistic nature, if we wish to live in a peaceful and unified world…

Let’s take a look at the political scene, which is in a great deal of turmoil. This turmoil is telling us…everything is in a state of change. This turmoil represents the chaos that precedes new form. We now have the opportunity through this chaos to transform the integrity of “Leadership” into its most virtuous intent.

So, how do we do this? It’s time to ask ourselves this question while we stand in the center of our internal chaos: If our outer world is a reflection of our inner world, then what within the self is divisive and corrupt? We must ask ourselves: “Am I being responsible for the direction I am taking in my life, or am I allowing others to direct my choices? Am I blaming others for these choices? Am I taking choice away from myself or others? What am I not willing to see or admit to myself? Where have I refused to take the responsibility of leadership toward my own life choices? When have I used others to do the things that I am responsible for? Am I fighting against myself and my own nature? Am I leading or living my life to the best of my ability?”

We must then ask ourselves, “What type of leadership do I really want?” The next question should be, “Am I practicing these qualities?”  If not, your next question is; “what must I change?”

Everyone is the leader of their own personal lives, through the choices made and actions taken or not. Therefore, we must take full responsibility for the changes we must make as we lead our lives, and then expect the same from those who we place in these powerful positions of leadership in our cities, states and nation. We are responsible for both ourselves and those we choose to govern us.

If we desire Leaders who are:

  • Completely transparent and honest about their professional career and dealings.
  • Have the courage to stand in the face of opposition and corruption to then bring about positive change.
  • Act in the interest of the group in which they govern.
  • Considers all matters with fairness and wisdom.
  • Puts the needs of whom they govern above their own personal desires.

We must also hold up the mirror and ask ourselves these questions:

Am I being honest with myself? Am I being honest with others? Am I standing up for my rights? Am I using fairness and wisdom in all my dealings? Am I holding myself accountable for all the decisions I’ve made, plus those I’ve ignored? Am I tending to the needs of myself and those who depend upon me? Am I being compassionate towards myself and others? Am I listening and paying attention to my internal needs? Am I proactive about the changes I must make within myself?

Each one of you must answer these questions if you truly wish to live in a world, a nation, a state, a city, a neighborhood, a family, a life that is at peace and expresses the true abundance that is available for all.

Positive change requires us to pay attention to what is really in our heart, for the heart is the gateway to the wisdom of our Soul. This is a truth that will set us back on course to the wonderful life that is within our grasp.

Greenleaf Happenings January 2017 ~ A New Canvas

canvas-outdoor

Hello Everyone!

Well, we made it through a nine year cycle of intense transformation. Now, we stand at the edge of something brand new. It is time to step onto our new canvas.

All indications point towards creating and experiencing countless new opportunities in every imaginable and wonderful way. Many are also feeling a surge of new ideas that can revamp what no longer works in our world or our lives.

2017

If we add together the numbers of the year 2017, the sum is 10. In numerology, the number 10 represents the beginning of a new cycle that will last for 9 years. Some clues as to the opportunities or experiences this new cycle will provide is within the numbers 2017.

We have been working with the energy of the 2 for quite some time. The 2 represents many things, however the greatest focus is upon our relationship within our own divisions. Do we relate to one another, ourselves and our world in harmonious and cooperative ways, or not? Wherever healing needs to take place in what we believe to be our divisions is triggered in our lives. It is a process of lifting the veil to reveal that there never has been any true division at all. The 0 is moving into the abyss, contemplating the change that must happen within. The 1 is the unity that is at the base and core of our very existence. We are connected and what we think, say or do effects all. The 7 represents the victory we earn by going within, facing our internal divisions and wounds, and then healing them. This is an internal journey that is done alone. Guidance and assistance is always available, but each individual is responsible for their own internal healing. This is done within the deepest parts of self and the union with our greatness – the God/Goddess within. This is where we unite with our Souls Wisdom through the pathway of our heart.

Essentially, this new cycle is about claiming our true wisdom. This wisdom then becomes the brush that creates a new view, utilizing the vibrant colors of choice, differences, cooperation and new ideas shared by all.

Change – Blog & Video Series

evgeny-terentev-birth-of-new-lives

I am beginning a Blog and Video Series where I’ll share some ideas and options to help us move toward the changes we are seeking in our world.  This series will simply be called “Change.” As we are moving into this new cycle of opportunity, it is now time to recreate our world into our deepest desires. As I have taught and written, we are now in a new age, one where we poised to step into our true brilliance.

This is a time where it is of great importance to align our heart with our mind. This we do by drawing forth the wisdom of our Soul that is at the center of our heart, and then impress this knowledge and desires to our mind in a way that honors all.

blog-video-1-dualityBlog 1 – Embracing Duality

We have entered a new era where our differences must be celebrated. Many elements of our past had distorted the true meaning of our differences. Our own ego began to judge these different qualities, beliefs and appearances as right or wrong, worthy or not. This must change if we are to experience a peaceful, happy and abundant world.

Change – Video/Blog 1 ~ Embracing Duality

Change ~ Transforming our World from the Inside Out

As we enter a new cycle in 2017, I have been inspired to begin a blog & video series that will focus upon positive change. As many in the spiritual and metaphysical world know, the only way for true and lasting change to take place is by change what is wrong inside us. Many of you may have heard the term: “our outer world is a reflection of our inner world.” This is the deepest, most profound, yet the scariest truth that will set us free. The only reason it is scary is because there is a misinformed part of us who is afraid of the power we truly hold.

With this series, I will attempt to shed some light upon the places within that have been in the dark for far too long. . .

Duality

orcas

We have entered a new era where our differences must be celebrated. Many elements of our past had distorted the true meaning of our differences. Our own ego began to judge these different qualities, beliefs and appearances as right or wrong, worthy or not. This must change if we are to experience a peaceful, happy and abundant world.

It is time to celebrate and honor our differences. We must come together and begin to learn from one another. This is a time to rise and inspire the world through our presence; our innermost, precious truth. It is time to claim our magic, by living life deeply, without fear of judgment. We must slow down to embrace each moment, for that is where change is possible.

How?

Everything in our world is a teacher. Our outer world is full of symbolism that can provide us with a great deal of knowledge and wisdom. About 15 years ago, one of these teachers or symbols got my attention. It was the Orca. These creatures have always captured my attention with their beauty and song. One day, I finally decided to pay attention to the Orca who seemed to keep showing up in my life, through my shamanic journeys and appearance in various pictures I began to see.

Orca Wisdom

orcas1

If you look at the orca, the most obvious thing about them is their colors; black and white. When I began to honor this creature as a Teacher, their wisdom began to open within me.  The Orca is a powerful symbol of duality. It is known as a powerful and ferocious killer whale, yet also for its graceful beauty, and if you are in tune with their Spiritual Essence; these Teachers are powerful healers who hold a great deal wisdom.

For now, I will share a simple truth. The Orca is a reflection of both our dualistic nature and our ability to unite our internal differences, which in turn unites our external differences.

Firstly, when we stop running away from what we think is wrong about ourselves, to notice it is only a ghost we created from our past in which we are running from. Secondly, we must take responsibility by reexamining what we began to fear within, and heal those experiences. Thirdly, we mustn’t judge our experiences or ourselves as good or bad. We must see them as situations that forced us to reclaim our power by stepping our innermost truth. All of this is designed to enhance our wisdom and evolve into who we have the capacity to be.

When we begin to unite our own dualistic nature – we become whole.  Through a nonjudgmental and healing practice through loving all of who we are, we transform old wounds and unite from the inside out.

When we stop fearing what is within us, we stop fearing our outer world. When we heal our internal divisions, new realizations and solutions surface in our mind through our glad heart. We also begin to address ourselves and outer world with understanding, compassion and inspiration. We also begin to see every person, thing and situation in our lives just as fascinating as we find ourselves to be. This in turn sets the stage for true communication and cooperative solutions or new creations.

Join Me

In invite you to join me as we continue this ride of change through realizing deeper truths and finding wise solutions to the condition of our lives and world.

We stand poised to create a world of great abundance, joy and growth for all. However, we must first accept this challenge – to notice what part we play in our own misfortunes and take responsibility for the changes and healing that must take place within. It’s time to get Real.

P.S. To understand the dualistic nature within ourselves, please refer to my book: Re-Entering Eden; Reclaiming our Wholeness & Divine Truth

Sacred Solstice

solstice-2016
The Winter Solstice represents the deep shift of our Soul, as we step through the Darkness and into a new cycle of Light. After 6 months of descending into the darkest night, a new cycle of ascending light of day is born…within us and our world.

During the sacred moments of Solstice, is an opportunity to face what you have run away from. It is the parts of self I am speaking about. Those parts of self you were taught to dislike and feel shame for are ready to be healed. Fear of these parts of self does not serve you – it harms you and keeps you in a continuing cycle of darkness and ignorance of what is real and precious.
When we are brave enough to face what frightens us, we transform the past as we also blossom and grow from within. Facing what we fear, frees us. In addition, reclaiming the parts of self who became lost within those fears unites us and makes us whole again. There has never been one part of who we truly are, we should have felt shame for.

One of the shameful biggies is front and center during the Solstice…

The Solstice is the changing of Natures Cycles and Seasons. This season reminds us of our own creative and magical power we have always held within. This is because; we will always find a merging of the Divine Masculine and Feminine or God and Goddess within the center of each cycle that is ending and beginning. This reflects the coming together of our masculine and feminine elements within us. This is a sacred, beautiful and sensual time of primal or pure Creation.

Throughout the ages, we have been taught to fear our own sexuality and the sensual feelings or energy that accompanies every creative thought we have. The bonfires that celebrate winter solstice remind us and reflect the fire of creations power – to change and create. The sexual union of pairs represents the reunion of our separated parts of self. These unions are meant to be honored as a sacred passage of rite – to respect the creative nature within all. These unions between pairs do not necessarily need to be between a male and female, because all have both within; masculine (God) and feminine (Goddess). This is a time to honor both of these equally powerful and important elements within Creation as well as within ourselves.

When we accept and honor the creative power within the union of our own masculine and feminine elements, we create amazing things!

The Dark energies also represent the dark womb of the feminine within each one of us. We house and nurture our ideas within our own feminine qualities (womb), so they may be born, strong, and healthy. Spring then represents the birthing of what we have cared for during the winter months. However, when we are conscious of the miracles that are happening within and around us, we stand in the center of pure joy, in all its elements and grow through all of joys stages of becoming.

I challenge each one of you – to see the darkness of night as the mystery that holds all of your potential joy within. When you do, the ascending light in your world will bless the growing creations waiting to come forth from out of the dark and transform the shadows within.

Abundant Blessings on this Joyous Holiday Season!

Greenleaf Happenings November 2016 – Inspired Reality

forest-fantasy-butterflies-women-copy

Hello Everyone!

I hope you’re ready for some changes. With the New Moon and Sun in transformational Scorpio, we are poised to step into what our Soul has been preparing us for. We are moving into a new cycle; one in which has been hidden from our sight, yet known within our heart. The Light is breaking through, revealing what is about to dawn.

The Process

Because of the upheaval in September and internal shifting in October, all were upgraded energetically as the physical body released much more of its dense past. When this happens, the cells of the body begin to vibrate higher as the light of the Soul increases its presence within the self. This aligns us with a greater reality, moving us closer and closer to the goal of fully conscious 5th dimension. The 5th dimension is the reality of Christ Consciousness. In this 5th dimension, we experience Soul embodiment; a physical existence as a fully awakened Being of Creation. We are accomplishing the united experience of two worlds; spirit and physical or heaven and earth.

In October, we came closer to our future realities by glimpsing or feeling them. However, always with this higher vibration, more light shines on what is blocking us. More triggers popped up for many to help bring to light another deep layer of repressed feelings and experiences in need of healing and release. Every time we witness corruption, betrayal or abuse, always remember that it is designed to wake up the parts of us that lost the way and fell victim. However, there are no true victims or villains; they are roles we played so we could grow and evolve.

We are still experiencing the back and forth of 3D thinking, 4D battles of right and wrong, then feeling the bliss of 5D. The back and forth is part of the process. After each mass release of the past, we move through stages of integration as our mental, emotional and physical bodies adjust to the new frequency and existence available for new growth and experience.  This is a confusing time, but does subside as a new sense of normalcy is experienced. These ongoing stages are all part of the transformational process, preparing us for our new reality, which requires Self Mastery.

Master of Inspiration

This universal month is 11 (11 + 2016) the Master of Inspiration. The wisdom within each one of us is moving us to step forward and to become the inspiration we have yearned for. As we realize our own inspiring spark, more sparks ignite. This master number also vibrates to 2, indicating that the Inspiration awakening within is connected to all others. Our relationship to Creation, our world, each other will be felt as the deep unity of our Souls truth is known.

Many have felt the shifting taking place as our internal world solidifies and unites our physical and spiritual realities. Experiences and feelings of disconnecting from what was, then feeling our life move through the truth within our hearts to reveal the teachings, wisdom and love that was growing and now blossoms; moving us into a new and abundant reality. Timelines have shifted greatly and will continue to do so as we consciously move into our Souls reality of no time.

Scorpio moves us deep within the self as we see the fears within our suppressed layers of history along our inward sojourn; we now see them for what they are – lessons that lead to growth. Our bravery is rewarded with the wisdom waiting even deeper within as we enter further into the gateway of our Soul.

And so, we have come a long way and are at our journeys end, about to enter a reality that our hearts have guided us toward as our Soul prepares our arrival.

Dusk to Dawn

We have worked towards cleaning up and finishing up many things. Now, our focus must turn towards the future.

Many are feeling the expression of their Soul burst forth with excitement, bliss and understandings that the mind can only hope to comprehend. One of these understandings is the flowing and magical nature of which we truly are. A power surge like no other that propels us hand in hand with the loving truth and unity that is the fabric of our truth.

In our Souls reality, focusing on the new possibilities also completes the past. As our focus towards our new realities strengthens, much of the past is resolved. When our karmic clearings and healings are done, we must remember to shift our focus. On a conscious level, we must choose something better. When we stop feeding our old reality, a natural transformation happens. Solutions simply appear for the projects, relationships and all that are moving into our expanding future. What is left dissipates and is either transformed or moves into another person’s reality who is in need of its lessons.

When we keep trying to fix things, we continue the wounded ego’s reality, by believing in its existence. In our Soul’s truth, there is nothing that needs healing. When we claim the reality of our Soul, we see that we created an illusion of something that is not real. However, we have created these illusions in order to learn. The focus needs to be on the self – what parts/aspects of self are still participating in the ego’s 3 & 4 D reality of pain, lack, judgment, anger, fear, etc. As we heal these ego aspects of self, they transform and becomes part of our wisdom, but we must release the reality of the ego’s birth.

As we connect to the 5D reality or Christ Consciousness, the veil of our own ignorance falls. We begin to understand that what we fight only persists and lives on. We begin to know what our Soul would do, because we become our Soul once more. It is time to focus on the Realities our Soul is offering.
