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”

Creating Your Reality – Class II 

November 20, 2017

The first step in changing your life is to understand the nature of energy. Everything is energy, manifested by you. Everything within your world is a reflection of the energetic vibrations you hold within yourself – your thoughts, emotions, beliefs, physical condition, memories, karmic lineage are producing your reality.

This class will focus upon:

  • 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

SHIFT

Weekly Thursday evenings 7 – 9 pm, we gather to discuss a variety of issues that surround birthing our best reality into our lives. This is a  supportive and informative group. 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,

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.

The Art of Receiving

317416_10150300828083329_2488747_n

The ability to receive is an innate talent we rarely use to its full potential. Receptivity is the capacity to accept all the wondrous joys and brilliance life has to offer. When we hone this gift, we see and experience our goals and dreams come to life because we open the door to receive them.

However, for most receiving is quite challenging at times, especially on a personal level. This is due to remnants of old beliefs that created feelings of unworthiness or justification, even obligation or fear. These destructive thoughts and uncomfortable sensations are part of the ego’s playground within the world we once knew. For many, surviving the past meant taking measures to protect their vulnerable hopes and hearts. The walls built and the locks put in place served to maintain our sacred treasures; however, they now keep us from enjoying the answers to our prayers. To fully receive requires us to take down our fortress and release our resistance, hidden within our unconscious fears. We must learn to trust again.

To briefly analyze the old quagmire we are talking about is to look at the energetic parents; giving is predominately our masculine energy and receiving is our feminine. There is a direct correlation to the ancient issues of mistrust and abuse our feminine energy endured. Our receptive principle suffered some hard blows during the dark ages of our past. But we now must allow the past to fade away and release all the inherited, residual fears that built up over time. This is how we reclaim our freedom. We each have masculine and feminine principles; we must once again honor the gift of both in order to enjoy the magic waiting for us.

As the year 2012 closed, we have entered a new cycle; one that nourishes and encourages us to reclaim our choice, our joy and every aspect of our hearts dreams. The Universe is holding us in a safe space where we can reacquaint ourselves with our abundant and loving truth – all we need to do is…accept. One of the most powerful keys to accepting is surrender. It is time to surrender all that is no longer our truth. We must let the boulders within the past go to feel the Flow of our receptive heart. Our river of gifts can only enter through the pathways we open.

Exercise:
Take some time to be alone, in a place where you feel safe. Play some music or tune into the sounds of nature – relax. Sit or lie down and allow yourself to melt into the chair, floor or the earth – just let yourself go. Next, form your conscious intention to release all that no longer serves your highest and greatest truths. Release the old boulders that block your receptive flow. See the gray mists of the past lift and leave you. Then, see the Sparkling Light that is left behind. This is your Brilliance – it is time you claim it.

To learn more about exercising your receptive muscles, please join my upcoming class “Opening Your Gifts,” February 25, 2013. For more information please click this link: http://www.greenleafhealing.com/Classes.html

Welcome to a New World!

Welcome to a New World!

Many are wondering what happened since the passing of 12/21/12. We still exist and will always do so, however….we have changed and will continue to change forever more.

We are not standing in the same world we once knew. The shift did happen and continues to reveal all we have been seeking. We are in new territory now, but our eyes are still seeing the remnants of our old world. We are now in a safe space ready to move onto the next steps of our evolutionary process. This space could be likened to Ellis Island; a place where many individuals and families enter a new nation and receive assistance with their transition before they begin their next steps with the choices now available.

We have entered an exciting and accelerated stage of transformation as we morph into our Soul’s identity, replacing the old ego personality we once were. This means we will be limitless and fearless as we become the Knowing Masters of the Universe with the accumulated Wisdom since the moment of our creation; millions or billions of years for many. As this happens, we will witness our world responding and collaborating to the joyous changes we are making.

One of the major changes you will begin to realize is the release of “time.” Structured ways of doing things will give way to our Soul’s innate sense of flowing and living in the “now moment.” As our Soul’s continue to step forward and transform our ego’s limiting ways, we will see, feel and experience our new world and joyous realities. It is happening and it’s glorious!

Everything you have dreamed and asked for is entering your life now. You are the only one who controls the timing of these wonderful wishes that are happening. As you allow yourself to feel the happy dance of your Soul and your inherent tendency to join Creations magical Flow, your gifts will join you.

As your adventure continues to unfold and your hearts expand to feel the happenings of your Soul and the Universe, you will feel your sense of Oneness. You will begin to recognize your connections to everything and everyone you encounter as a familiar sense and warmth that fills your heart and moves through your entire body. This will also ignite rejuvenations not only in your bodies, but in every area of your lives.

It’s important that you take care of your needs. This includes time to get to know the real you that is stepping forward. You will be astonished when you begin to see and know the greater truth of who you are as you view yourself and your life through the eyes of your Soul. You are the Jewels of Creation and each one of you are needed right now so the Universe can Sparkle and Shine with the new insights and wisdom you have cultivated during your time in the past you’ve experienced.

So many new adventures await, as you create the doors that will open them. Your imagination is the gateway that births new possibilities into being. Your joy is what brings life to your dreams and your belief is what manifests the door and new world waiting for your embrace.

Abundant Blessings on your Wondrous Journey’s,

Pressures of…Change

Hold on!

Ok, we can’t run and we cannot hide from it any longer, change is here and it is not letting up. From one day to the next something else is changing or we feel as though we are on an erratic emotional ride.

In a nutshell, we are being transformed….

It is our goal, consciously or not to come into the true version of ourselves as we embody more and more of our Soul. As our Soul continues to move to the forefront in our lives, all that we have repressed is coming up with more force than before and this push will increase. It is time, it is time…get it together is the theme of the Universe.

If you are not with the program, you will feel an internal struggle as the ego façade with its repressed anger and fears try to break free. Let it happen! Your Soul’s frequency and brilliance is transforming your lower vibrating energies, but the mind get’s in the way. When a transformation is happening, you will feel a residual effect within your body as your cells change. Chances are you will also feel old emotional memories as they make for the exit too. Let them go!!! You will experience problems when you grab hold of these past issues and begin to examine them again. If you do this, you could relive or experience that issue again.  That is ego. The ego lives through the patterns formed by the past. Do not allow the ego to stand in the way of this transition that must take place. It is time to get out of the ego’s tidal wave and ride the waves with your Soul.

When you consciously connect to your Soul, you feel relief that turns into joy. Yes, joy. You can win this battle by flipping… inward. The ego’s reality is built upon what it perceives in your outer world. The ego is the Soul’s opposite and a way to experience a duality based reality. But that game is over. The days of living through the fallacy of separation are over; however the ego is scared and feels as though it is dying. Death only exists within the ego’s reality, not your Soul’s. Your Soul is an extension of your greater Spirit and is connected to All That Is. In your Divine Truth, nothing in Creation dies, but it does transform into a greater version through the knowledge gained from previous experiences. Problem is the ego does not understand this. The fact is, energy cannot be destroyed, and the ego is energy, so it cannot be eliminated, but it is in the process of transformation – changing its form. The egos energy is returning to its original form… Light.

Enjoy the Journey~
