God’s Vineyard ~ Initiating Spiritual Growth

By: Jennifer Deisher

Tuscany W flat sm

We all have access to a higher creative, intelligent power and a beautiful spiritual vineyard where we each have our own sovereign plot.  For argument’s sake, we’ll call this loving source of power “God”.  Our power is something we are all seeking, whether we realize it or not.  We begin learning to attract “things” by using The Law of Attraction but it takes a combination of modesty and discipline in order to practice this in a spiritual sense; not a place of ego. We become accustomed to giving our power away to authority and external things until we forget how to have an intimate relationship with God in a natural, organic way.  It is up to us to plant divine seeds in our vineyard; using our free will to ask for tools that allow us to grow and learn.  If we’re not feeling a little “dumbed down” from time to time, we’re not learning anything.  Why allow ourselves to feel embarrassed or stupid for our own naivety?  Compared to something all-knowing and all-encompassing, we are the equivalent of an innocent child.  We can go about educating the child in kindness or belittle it in condemnation for being that which it is, a soul who is willing and eager to learn but still adolescent in the much bigger picture.

We have the individual skills to discover the emotional connection to our power but learning how to use it takes persistence and conscious awareness.  The dichotomy is, we’re supposed to feel powerful but we should maintain a healthy respect for both God and our fears.  If we don’t, we become like the hypocrite who preaches that God is the driving force in their life without building their spiritual house on a solid foundation of spiritual logic, the logos.  We become experts at learning philosophy and giving advice without caring for what’s been given unto us as individuals, the Self.  By identifying with someone else’s interpretation of something that can only be self-defined, we become our own golden calf and sacrificial lamb for thinking we can build a house without emotional, physical and psychological substance.  We have to be willing to change and make adjustments to what we think we know by allowing spirit to move us where we need to be.

Spiritual Bypassing


When the remedy you have offered only increases the disease, then leave him who will not be cured, and tell your story to someone who seeks the truth ~ Rumi

Spiritual bypassing shields us from the fallout of our reality, especially if we’re having a hard time coming to terms with something.  In short, it keeps us disconnected from our true emotional state looking for something outside of ourselves to make us feel better.  On the flip side, it says we’re seeking a spiritual path and it’s much better than some of the alternative coping mechanisms such as substance abuse.  For instance, there’s a great deal of ideas and rhetoric about how to fix the world, even though what’s happening in the world at large may not be effecting our individual reality.  Our spiritual “ego” is very good at telling us we have it all figured out when, in fact, we may be focusing “out there” because there’s something right where we are that we’re trying to avoid.  With spiritual practice we learn how to confront our fear in a healthy manner, understand how we use it to feed imbalanced patterns and begin to quiet our thoughts in order to listen to the answers from withIN.  When we don’t slow down and listen, we tend to find ourselves right back in a “fight or flight” state every time we become emotionally triggered.

Connecting to God is about building a bridge between the physical world and the spiritual world.  Spiritual bypassing happens when we begin to awaken but quickly forget that we live in the physical world where there are many distractions to keep us from tending to The Vineyard.  We use our knowledge and intellect to deflect the intimate connection with God because, in order to do so, we also have to face our own emotional, physical and psychological proclivities.  We can’t heal something with God if we refuse to allow ourselves to be awake and aware to it.  When we go about living only in a spiritual reality, and not drawing upon our experiences in the physical world, we go about denying ourselves the healing that God is offering to each and every one of us.

It’s not about making it right with others, it’s about making it right withIN.  There is a profound spiritual significance to “confession” but confession doesn’t mean getting honest with a priest or a middleman – why would we want to connect with God by proxy?   Participating in spiritual confession means bringing forth an emotionally honest and heartfelt revelation with ourselves in front of God about how we feel.  We give it over to something with greater clarity allowing us to use the experience moving forward as we plant, weed, grow and harvest our vineyard plot of sovereignty.  When we’re shown something we can’t accept, our circumstances continue to repeat themselves until we face it head on.  It’s not always easy to find Truth when, in some cases, we have to question our own sanity right along with it.  As love is patient and kind, we know there is a nurturing power holding space for us until we can confront ourselves into a place of acceptance.  We don’t find our way out of darkness without a little post-traumatic stress sometimes; but God stays with us, gently asking us to have a change of heart so we can find our way home.   We are our own atlas, the atlas that holds the weight of the world on its shoulders or the atlas that is the roadmap to salvation; it’s up to us to choose and choose wisely.

The Logos

There is a logical interpretation to the message of Christ just as there is great relevance in the polarizing process of em-bodi-ment.  The love of God, in its purest form, is not something we can assimilate in a short amount of time which is why enlightenment is a continuous progression.  Embodiment is the integration of energy and we can feel it as we heal teaching us to recognize it as such.  It goes toward familiarizing us with our own emotional resistance.  With practice walking in grace, love, sovereignty and truth; we begin to objectively create with the energy of God rather than in spite of it. There is a difference between humbly giving ourselves over to a higher power in discipline and intimacy as opposed to giving that power away to the authority of another.  When we don’t establish healthy boundaries we give away our dignity, integrity, self-worth and self-respect; essentially turning over the vineyard plot granted us by divine permission.  If we’re not where we think we’re supposed to be, it’s because we’re not emotionally ready.  We can’t throw the baby out with the bath water because we feel that the word makes us uncomfortable.  In understanding the words, we also understand that they are action words designed to change our way of being and doing, sternly guiding us back on course collectively and individually.  We don’t need a spiritual leader or elected official to connect with God but we do need Mother Earth, the garden and the womb.  It’s a very simplistic and indigenous way to bond using the physical world as a “medium” of communication with the spiritual world.   The Spirit of Earth responds when we court the elements through loving intention, the word of Christ instead of the idealism behind it.

We can go to church every Sunday or study theology our entire lives and still not make an emotional connection with what we’re reading and intellectualizing about.  We are arrogant to think that we can out-smart, misconstrue truth or bypass our emotions with God.  It’s up to us to swallow the medicine whether it be in the form of accountability, humility, discipline, intimacy or learning how to practice the concepts of Grace. How we choose to proceed with our own healing is up to us but God doesn’t show up for us if we don’t ask for our own salvation, especially when we won’t acknowledge where we feel “flawed”.  We know that we’ve (truly) found our own revelations when we have transcended the roles of victim, martyr and/or oppressor of self and others.  Energy flows where focus goes and it’s up to us to learn how to harness our energy from a place of love rather than placing blame for our problems.  For example, if we’re fixated on the “end of the world”, we shouldn’t be surprised when we feel like the world is ending.  If we want to come into unity, we have to recognize where we haven’t been united from withIN– emotionally and otherwise.  We don’t just attract our thoughts, we attract our emotions.  They call it spiritual practice for a reason, we have access to our own emotional space in order to absorb the rational interpretation of a loving presence.  We become more aware of our own emotional, mental and physical hygiene; coming into an organic purity of the heart and soul.  By encouraging an intimately balanced relationship with God, we learn how to have honest relationships with Self and others.  We initiate a greater and more profound change in our lives by living The Golden Rule which leads us to those synchronistic moments that happen when we know Spirit is a moving and active force in our lives.  With em-bodi-ment, the presence comes from withIN; we have a responsibility to realize that we are the physical manifestation of love in action, co-creating in God’s Vineyard.

“Drop your maps and listen to your lostness like a sacred calling into presence.  Here, where the old ways are crumbling and you may be tempted to burn down your own house.  Ask instead for an introduction to that which endures. This place without a foothold is the province of grace.  It is the questing field, most responsive to magic and fluent in myth.  Here, where there is nothing left to lose, sing out of necessity that your ragged heart be heard.  Send out your holy signal and listen for the echo back.” ~ Dreamwork with Toko-pa

The Pruning Tree & The Stone ~ Healing the Hijacked Brain


The hijacking of the fear-based brain is the foundation for many of our rooted beliefs and perceptions.  We have to remember that we are spiritual beings having a human experience so psychology and biology play a compelling part in our behavior and reactions to certain stimulation.  By having an awareness of how the hijacked brain works and learning how to heal and recover these sensitive “fear based” areas we deepen our awareness of our own evolution.

There is an area of the brain known as the Amygdala(e) which can be described as the “kidneys” or emotional filtering center in the brain.  Indeed, part of the healing process is an awareness of how we filter emotion and emotional information.  Our society is inherently based on producing fear, stress, addiction, and trauma via our manufactured systems of energy, governance, healthcare, agriculture, education, religion and finance (just to name a few).  There is also a term used in psychology known as an “Amygdala hijacking” which is described as “emotional responses from people which are immediate and overwhelming, and out of measure with the actual stimulus because it has triggered a much more significant emotional threat”[i].  In this case, I want to talk about what happens when the hijacking becomes a permanent situation and how we can begin to heal from our own worst fears and nightmares.  Much of this has to do with biology and our “fight or flight” reactions but we also need to understand how our environment plays a role in stimulating the fear-based brain.  Once we begin to make peace with our own fear triggers we can begin to clear and purify the damage, or clean the filter of the brain that reacts to this stimulation.  The clogged “fear filter” of the brain can cause biological build-up; which may result in depression, anxiety, addiction, substance abuse, anger, tension, guilt, shame and apathy (just to name a few).

The problem with the cold and heavy emotion of fear is that fear itself also has “consciousness” depending on how we filter it through our psyche and our bodies, including the physical body.  We subconsciously hold onto fear and use it to fuel our addictions, anxiety, depression, and tension in general, especially as we hold tension in our physical (cellular) body.  We have to learn to “objectify” our fears by understanding that fear has its use to warn us of impending danger – such as fire or walking out in front of a moving vehicle.  It’s important to recognize that we’ve learned to live with an elevation of this natural emotion due to outside manipulations.

When we go against Natural Law, intentionally or otherwise, we create emotional imbalances which are consequences of the individual and collective “fear hijacking”.  We were never meant to (really) live in such “dark” (imbalanced) energy and as it consumes us, it also consumes our planet; our Mother.  We live in an electromagnetic universe and our imbalanced emotions are a huge part of the chaos we see all around us.  In short, it’s our responsibility to clean up our own “energetic” mess!

If we look at the biology of our unresolved “fight or flight” dilemma and call it “consequences” then we can count the emotional clearing as cleaning up our own energetic mess.  It’s a confronting process and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly but we all have this responsibility to ourSelf, each other, and Planet Earth.  It doesn’t matter why we have this fear or whom is responsible, only that we go about cleaning it up for our own well-being, happiness, and the embodiment of our spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical journey.

The Pet Stone

663ecc158795bf300a7005c6ed26946bBeneath the resentment, anger, bargaining, apathy, cynicism and shame is where you will find the stone of fear.  The stone is the piece of us that only knows one thing and it’s a piece of us that is inherent in our biology, the biology that we can’t take with us in our evolution.  The stone of fear comes from what we call “survivor mode” or the “fight or flight” reaction releasing hormones that cause us to feel frozen, panicky, depressed, anxious and overwhelmed (eventually) if they are not released the proper way.  We have created all kinds of rooted patterns based on the presence of the stone of fear.  The stone is hardened and calcified, it hides, it doesn’t play well with others, and would rather not be seen, heard, or noticed – unless it’s enraged that is.  The stone of fear is like the child who was told to “be seen and not heard” and who was taught to stand rigid in “time out” – the child who is always afraid of getting hurt so it stops participating in life, playing it safe so as not to find what its soul is truly looking for.

It doesn’t want to leave or let go so it’s a process of gently nurturing and massaging it until it gives way from a grossly distorted and unyielding object to a childlike innocence and wonder bringing gifts of magical proportions.  Just because we confront our fear of being alone or death or (insert your brand of poison here), doesn’t mean that we’re going to have to walk in that experience!  It only means that we’ve faced the root of the fear at its source instead of band-aiding our traumatic and unreleased, imbalanced experiences.

Our trauma and shadowy experiences tend to hold on for a reason so it’s a profound and healing journey to get to the root of our actions and reactions.  We know that fear holds consciousness in the form of our “ego” or lower mind but Love holds consciousness too.  Love holds Light and connects us to the unified field of consciousness or the consciousness of “God”.  Love transcends time, dimension, space and gravity.  Love shines Light on the stone of fear and it’s our greatest weapon in taming it.

 The Pruning Tree

1424218016_5c9cThe Tree of Life is a universal library of information and connects us to the “unified field of Consciousness”.  Known throughout time, culture, and religion; it’s also been known as The Book of Life, The Akashic Record, The Cosmic Mind, or the Unified Field of Consciousness.  For all intents and purposes, we all have access to our own Tree of Life and its library.  Our bodies are an intricate design of brilliant architecture and nothing is by accident.  When we think of our psyche, experiences and “traumas” as being the very bottom of the proverbial iceberg, we can also begin to imagine that we (and our human body) are the key to reaching these depths (with caution).  What’s chronically hidden beneath the roots of our own tree is a deeply motivating force beneath our experiences, including dis-ease of the mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical “bodies”.  If we can build an understanding of fear in its many faces we can begin to undo the cellular damage caused by our subconscious, biological reactions to fear.  It’s something that we have to look for in order to find but when we do we can begin to change the turbulence in our ocean and at the tip of the iceberg; the “tip of the iceberg” being the personas we embody in the “real world” depending on who we are interacting with and the ocean being our experiences.

We cannot Love ourselves truly if we are in judgment or conflict with Self.  The Universe is a giant mirror so when we find ourselves “at odds” with others, chances are it’s also profoundly reflecting something back that requires our attention for healing.  Our inner voice is always there if we choose to listen but listening is also learning to quiet the blocks created by the unprocessed fear that needs clearing in the first place.  The “catch” is also the chase.  When we (finally) emotionally connect with the stone, there will be a clash of energy and the base emotions of grief until we find a place of fearless Acceptance.  When energy moves, we need a replacement or we tend to go back to our fearful patterns.  The Earth will heal us if we let her and we need an outlet for each of our “bodies”.  A Gratitude practice, meditation, or journal (or a combination thereof) is a great way to begin to appreciate the emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical “bodies”.  We are, in truth, growing our own Garden of Eden from withIN.  Where we find resistance is where we need to nurture ourselves and our perspectives with more loving intention.  However, inside our DNA is all of the genetic knowledge that has accumulated over all of our respective lifetimes, both individually and as a collective.

We must learn to live and abide by Natural and Universal Law, as opposed to falling “victim” to the system that hijacked us in the first place.  The system will fail because it wasn’t created according to the Natural Laws of Creation.  But, we are also spiritual beings having a human experience which requires we face the effects of our “energetic mess”.  Everything in this journey is a process.  We have to give ourselves permission to be happy, prosperous, healthy, and whole.  Only by allowing ourselves permission to truly heal will we be able to interact with our own (energetic) “mess” in an objective way.  We all have everything we need withIN ~ all of the Love and all of the Wisdom.  The Earth is Ancient and our DNA is Ancient, filled with the knowledge of the Universe.  There is an answer to every question and a cure for every dis-ease when we connect with The Tree of Life and begin to care for it by learning to care for ourselves in deeper and deeper ways.  Listen to the wisdom and embrace the beautiful gift of being human in all its emotional complexities ~ from stone to rock to water.  We are Evergreen, after all!

Life as an Empath ~ Creative Workshop


Empaths or empathic people are wonderfully unique and much more highly sensitive than most.  Being an empath can be a difficult journey, especially when one is just learning that they have this Gift or haven’t quite figured out how to navigate it.  As empaths, we tend to take other people’s emotions on as our own and if we haven’t gained an understanding of how to really come to terms with the myriad of emotions that bombard our emotional field on a daily basis, it can actually make us physically ill or energetically inefficient.  Empathy can be a great Gift but there are side-effects and empaths need a great deal of Self-Care, without it the Gift can quickly become a “curse”.  Empaths tend to suffer from bouts of depression, chronic fatigue, digestive problems, headaches, substance “abuse” and a general malaise or weariness with Life and their (otherwise Loving) relationships.

As empaths, we tend to shut down the emotional “body” but this takes creative and intelligent energy to deflect the emotional “bullets”.  We’ve also been patterned through society, family, and sometimes even religion to feel guilty, ashamed,or in judgment of our own emotions without an understanding that not all of them come from the “empath”.  Founder of Blueprints for Butterflies, writer of The Moon Hippie Mystic blog, and fellow empath, Jennifer Deisher, has created a life changing 3 week workshop designed to use a Creative outlet in order to assist in embodying the empathy gene in a safe emotional space.  We will gently catch and release the emotions that are unhealthy and tiring using your artistic creativity as a tool.  We all experience “negative” emotions, it’s what we do with them that matters.  Blueprints for Butterflies will teach you to use the emotional “poison” as medicine to Heal oneself and others by extension.  We will keep track of your emotional epiphanies and milestones through Art and journaling all while  turning pain and trauma into Creativity and Emotional Intelligence.  From here, you will learn to safely navigate being an empath and learn to use this Gift as one of benevolence for emotional transcendence of Self and others.  There is a reason we are here and if you’re looking to walk withIN and find your purpose and blueprint as an empath while having tangible art, music, poetry, writings, and videos to show for it, we hope to connect with you today.  To register for the Life as an Empath Creative Workshop please contact us at blueprintsforbutterflies@gmail.com or go to our Contact Us page.  Pricing is as follows:

Pricing for the 3 week workshop is $250.  Please click below for payment or e-mail us at blueprintsforbutterflies@gmail.com to discuss payment options or if you would like us to send you an invoice for the Workshop.

Earth School ~ Finding Our Divinity


Here we are on our beautiful blue/green planet, hurdling toward infinity, united by our Humanity.  As we travel through time and space, whether we realize it or not, we are also seeking our Divinity.  Buried deep inside our Humanity and our DNA we find our Divinity through how we connect and care for one another.  As we flow into our Spiritual journey it causes us to question everything we think we know about Life and urges us to become messengers of Light and Love within the collective of Humanity.  At the same time, we also have to be awake and aware of others, their specific brand of “hardship” and how we go about relating to them from a spiritual perspective.


Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

hierarchy-of-needsThe symbolism of the triangle and all-seeing eye is something we see over and over again in our society.  It’s used in church, state, and finance but what does it really mean?  In terms of psychology, we have a good idea of how to interpret the triangle through Maslow’s hierarchy of needs[i].  From the picture we can get an idea of what the triangle represents when it comes to our most basic human needs and how it also represents our spiritual evolution or ascension.  The bottom of the triangle represents our most basic physiological needs and the top represents our own Self-actualization or Self-Awareness which is equivalent to the “all-seeing eye” at the top of the proverbial pyramid.   A common theme in spiritual circles is that we are spiritual beings having a human experience and that’s the truth but we can’t ever forget that we are also human too.  We have biological and emotional needs that must be met in order for our very survival and until those needs are met we can’t even begin to understand our potential for Self-actualization.  We can get a great idea in times such as meditation or being of service to others but our full potential comes in style as the “new black” through the practice of empathy and Ubuntu.

My friend, Deb Augenbaugh, decided to do just that when she started the organization Rainbow Day of Love to assist in feeding the homeless.  My husband, Aaron, and I had the honor of volunteering with her organization one day over the summer.  What we found was quite interesting and very relevant to our awakening and/or spiritual journey.  We came out on a Sunday morning to serve breakfast and as soon as breakfast was finished the group immediately formed another line for the next meal.  We struck up a chat with a few people after breakfast and found so many stories, real people including veterans and college graduates who have had great hardship but are still living to tell their story.  The tragedy of this situation is that their lives in this “homeless” moment are being spent having their most basic physiological needs met at the very bottom of the pyramid.  In other words, they spend the whole day meeting the physiological needs of food, water, and shelter.  On the spiritual side, we speak about the law of attraction and that we create our own reality but this doesn’t speak of empathy if we are seemingly at a level of Self-actualization looking “down”.  To take it a step deeper we can say that it’s even its own form of prejudice which is a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.  In short, we are all creating our own reality based on our level of Awareness and for some people that level of Awareness revolves around staying alive in the first place.  In this reality, there is no room for other forms of safety, love, esteem, or self-actualization yet it’s society’s tendency to chastise them for their situation.  We have to be willing to see where we have learned to reject and rationalize situations that we have been taught to avoid, make us uncomfortable, or we are fearful of.

The Empathy Card


Empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. 

Scientists are beginning to understand that humans are soft wired with the empathy gene[ii].  When we say “soft wired” it means that it’s up to us to exercise and utilize the empathy muscle so we can gain a better understanding of our collective journey.  The Law of Correspondence (Immutable): The second of the seven Universal Laws tells us “As above, so below; as below, so above” ~ Tania Kotsos[iii] which means we have an individual journey and a collective journey and they are interconnected and correspond with one another in “duality”.  But, we can also transcend duality with our empathy both as conscious and sub-conscious awareness.  Our empathy teaches us Acceptance and benevolence which is when we choose to act in Kindness as opposed to judgment or “prejudice” due to a misunderstanding in our perception.

We cannot be Intelligent without our Creativity and this shows when we look at the homeless “experiment” mentioned above.  We have incredibly intelligent, talented, educated, and creative people who are doing the best they can with the reality in which they find themselves.  All of the Gifts they have are being used to find an intelligent and creative way to survive.  And, that’s the “tragedy” because this intelligence and creativity could be an amazing asset to our society!  It also helps to understand that survival is hard-wired into our biology and it’s a most natural response to do what we need to do in order to have our most basic physiological needs met, including our own safety.  There is nothing wrong in that and it’s true that given the proper circumstances we would all act accordingly in order to Live.

The Essence of Ubuntu


In truth, it doesn’t matter how we got here or there, it’s what we do with what we learned from the experience and whether or not we choose to let it define us that matters.  This goes towards any aspect of Life whether it be poverty, mental illness, addiction, and/or lack of education just to name a few.  We can’t begin to uplift our world and our planet if we are unwilling to empathize with and empower the people who are experiencing their own forms of hardship, no matter the circumstance.  When we add Ubuntu into the mix with our pyramid and empathy we see the much bigger picture.  We see “I am because we are” instead of just looking at our reality from our individual perspective.

I came across this quote from Shakespeare the other day which says it perfectly, “Fatigue makes cowards of us all”.  And, when our day revolves around a most basic need for survival we have to also understand the kind of fatigue that comes with it.  From this compassionate place, free from judgment, we can begin to find new ways of “enlightenment” and ways to fulfill, uplift, and inspire one another.  We can hear each other and begin to meet each other’s most basic, fundamental, physiological needs if we emotional grasp the “stupid simple” idea that if just one of us is suffering we aren’t as Well as we could be and should be!  If we look into the empathy mirror with the practice of Ubuntu, we can transcend the “duality” of poverty, illness, and suffering that comes from an incapacitated way of doing things.  When we practice altruism we begin to Heal those pieces of Self that were asking to be seen in said mirror.  There is more than enough Abundance, food, water, energy, and money to go around if we pay it forward in the moments our paths cross a brother or sister who needs something it is in our capacity to Give.

So, next time you cross paths with someone who makes you “uncomfortable” it may be time to see if you can get to know them a little better, see what makes them tick, and ask them what they need instead of assuming.  In other words, homeless people don’t need our advice as to how to get a job.  Instead, they need food and safety as well as someone to invest in letting them know they have a future.  We can let people know that they are seen and alive and important with a simple smile or a polite conversation.  We all have a very significant role in the evolution of our planet and we all play a role in embracing our diversity into ONEness.  We have the capacity to leave a Legacy of Hope and Love behind for our children and our children’s children.  Especially if we stop looking to our government “programs”, which aren’t working, and begin to “take matters into our own hands”.  When we finally reach this state of Christ Consciousness it changes and breaks the pattern of our “reality” as we know it.  We can change the way the entire world looks and thinks with random, simple acts of Kindness.  We can look in the Mirror….

The River – Navigating Your Own Spiritual Route

The River

By Andy Whiteley and Jennifer Deisher

Contributing Writers for Wake Up World

No one can define the river. The only one that can define the other is itself. Life is the river.

The intricate river of consciousness is a stream of oneness that flows around us, through us, and between us. We are all diverse beings, yet through it we are entirely interconnected.

As we ride the river, it brings us endless opportunities to change course, to shift our energetic focus. We come to crossing after crossing, decision after decision. But the collective current can be overwhelming, so we often plot the course that others have take, follow someone else’s map, or sail the route most familiar, forgetting or foregoing the truth that we are all navigators, living only to experience the limitless river, our own way.

Going with the flow

Despite our diversity, as we grow we are taught to suspend our individuality, to be “an adult”, to join the uniformed collective and give up on the unique “silly dreams” of our childhood. We learn to celebrate those who do and to castigate those who don’t. We learn very early that expressing our deepest drives, and taking our deepest dives, will differentiate us from the social group – the first step towards ostracism, or “not fitting in”.

The way to navigate the river, we’re taught, is to go with the collective flow. Don’t rock the boat. Keep your eyes on the boat ahead. Row to the beat of the drum. Some of us feel like giving up paddling altogether. As we ride the waves of the planetary shift, it can certainly seem the easier option.

But, just as the river is undefined until it defines itself, we are undefined until we define ourselves. Our river is infinite. Our potential is endless. Our only limitation is the idea of limitation; an idea we reinforce in each other from birth.

Thankfully, self-limiting ideas can be deconstructed, when you’re ready to get your feet wet. How? Take a deep breath and grab a paddle!

It’s up to each of us to choose our own direction, right now, from this point, according to our own inner compass. We’re on the water anyway… Would you rather choose a destination or just follow the boat ahead? We may navigate unknown, even uncharted obstacles, but that is an inevitable part of exploring the river. Sailing our own spiritual route, we see a clearer view of what’s around us. Unobstructed by expectation and limitation, we navigate from our intuition, exploring our own unique connection to the limitless potential of the current.

That’s when we discover our own ‘special something’…. and when that happens, anything can manifest. What, is up to you.

Which wolf wins?

One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?’

The old man simply replied, ‘The one you feed’.

Creating the dream

In the reality we see today, we have two clear paths to choose from: to act from kindness, embrace diversity, and honor real knowledge, wisdom and peace… Or to continue giving our energy to a centralized culture of induced polarity and misinformation, which breeds greed, ego and apathy.

So which wolf will you feed?

Many will think this “childish dream” of creating a truly benevolent commUnity is just that; a dream – a fantasy, not a plan, and certainly not a plan already in action. But we challenge them to think about this in a different way.

At this point in humanity’s history it seems that there are many who are desperately hanging on to an antiquated social belief system, many aspects of which they don’t even realize exist or affect them. Like the river of consciousness, our social programming goes very, very deep; it is attached to our sense of value and our sense of self. It colors our view of the entire river, as it started the day we were born. And despite the efforts of the Powers That Were to perpetuate the ‘norm’, to keep us paddling in circles, those inherited beliefs have failed us both individually and collectively.

It was inevitable. In the end, all lies break down.

Our society is built on a toxic foundation. Led by deceit, we honor the values of competition and consumption, separation and (perceived) safety. When you’re in it, entranced by it, it can be difficult to see it. But you can feel it. You can’t put your finger on it but something doesn’t feel right. Everyone’s smiling but something’s up. You’re just not sure what. And anyone who speaks up is treated as a lunatic.

That’s the trap.

As a result, here we are as a society, living out the true definition of insanity; doing the same things over and over each day, and expecting a different outcome tomorrow. We’re paddling around in circles, hoping for a better “reality”, but ignoring to the turns the river is offering.

We don’t know about you but we choose a different reality. Today. And it starts with just one new turn.

Our most limiting beliefs and values were created for us in childhood, and we are comfortable with the patterns of behavior (however negative) that they drive from deep within us. After all, they are all we know. It is by questioning the beliefs we were taught by others (who were also taught by others), consciously shedding those beliefs that don’t serve us as individuals, and realizing that we have choices, that we find the ability to tune into our heart – our relationship with our true self – and learn from within what route is best for us, individually and authentically.

Only then, when we realize our true nature – warts, farts and all – can we nurture what is unique about our self, and ultimately contribute our gift to the betterment of the whole. Until then, we’re just following the flow of someone else’s current, bobbing around in the wash.

As we begin to explore a path that truly resonates for us, we break down our own sense of limitation – that hopeless sense of failing without ever trying – and remember that anything we can conceive is possible. We find alignment with our own unique vibration, and finally stop expecting (and then accepting) ‘less’ for our self, and for those around us.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” ~ Henry Ford

My boat, my reality

If you can’t conceive of what we’re describing, that’s okay. This is my boat, and this is my reality. You may prefer a different route to travel. Your boat, your reality. You may also find yourself lost, and that’s okay too. But please, until you find your inner compass, paddle quietly to the shore and try not to obstruct passing vessels.

People who say it can’t be done should not interrupt those who are doing it. ~ George Bernard Shaw

The fact is, people, places, things, and circumstances are only as important as the energy we give them. Even science is coming to understand that our universe is as responsive to us as we are responsive to it; that DNA can be re-programmed by words and frequencies; that the world literally changes at a quantum level under the watchful eye consciousness; that we areinterdimensional beings with the power of suggestion, intention and belief at our disposal. So, as science and spirituality collide, understanding that our consciousness helps to shape the ‘physical’ 3D world around us, the laws of physics and consciousness should be seen as complementary.

So let’s apply this principle. Let’s toss stones of intention and love into the collective waters, and change the vibration of the whole river.

Of course, in a community of individuals, we each have choices. Though the river is interconnected, what you do in the comfort of your own boat is up to you. But it is worth remembering, if you keep veering left, you’ll just keep going around in circles.

Are you ready to admit humanity is lost and try a new route? To create that “dream” reality?

As rewarding as it is, it takes great courage of the heart to embark deep within oneself. It can be very confronting. We may feel pain, or regret, or that we were “wrong” in the way we once perceived our respective reality. But we must remember that our perspective is never “wrong”. Constantly altered by experience, our perspective is a unique and mutable manifestation of consciousness itself. It is consciousness. Without experience and change, there would be no challenge, no growth – no reality. This fact of our reality becomes more apparent as we move into new levels of consciousness, and more comfortable as we learn to separate our Being from our ego.

So, as we go through this self discovery and raise ourselves to a higher vibration, it helps to remember that we are not who we once were. We are an ever-changing part of something more vast and complex than we can possibly comprehend. As we delve into the depths of the river, we must show ourselves compassion and release the emotions of those “regrettable” experiences that brought us here, and release the frequency of those unresolved feelings from our being. And we must show others the same compassion, regardless of ‘where’ they are on their journey. We’re all on this river together.

Honoring life

Let’s honor those things in others that are common among us, and which make us human.

Let’s honor everyone we meet, and see and hear them with an open heart and an open mind.

Honor life and love, whether you are saying goodbye or saying hello. Honor the heart, whether it is lost in sorrow or shining bright.

Honor the elderly, for riding that river that brought you here.

Honor your parents and your children, sisters and brothers, partners and friends, who share the journey with you.

Honor and celebrate the people who make a real difference, everyday.

Honor the art of humanity where you see it, whether it is a masterpiece or a hopscotch board drawn in chalk. Honor the music that stirs your soul and makes your body move. Honor the ideas and ideals that inspire you to act, and the writing that touches your heart and makes you smile.

Honor the experiences that knocked you on your ass, and the opportunities that helped change your life. Honor the uniqueness of your experience, and of others. And honor the fact that you made it here.

Honor the Earth as the giver of life. Honor your body as a portal to this existence. Honor your sexuality as a sacred part of your humanity. Honor your mind, and question everything you “know”. Honor your intuition as it lets you know where to find joy in your life, and where to find resistance and growth. Honor your weaknesses, as they ultimately become our assets.

Honor your limitless imagination… and let’s see what an amazing commUnity we can create together.

Honor your sacred, unexplainable self.

Honor life.

In a limitless world, our only limitation is the idea of limitation.

Let’s explore the river.

Basketweaving 101~ Weaving Happiness into our Vibration


Happiness is a factor of Life and one well worth striving for.  It’s a necessary component for us to completely embark on a spiritual path.  Our heart, soul, and spirit don’t live in the energy of “not good enough”, or where there isn’t enough time, or in our negative energy.  Let’s face it, some of us have had our fair share of addiction, trauma, and tragedy.  Those who have experienced some of the more “hard core” issues, or are currently working through them, may find that sometimes we have to work a little harder to find our Joy.

Many of us have experienced the fallout of what we sometimes call “the matrix”.  I prefer to think of it as limited patterns of controlling behavior which constricts our true power as creators because we think we have a limited amount of choices.  What we forget sometimes is that we actually have to learn or re-learn how to be Happy.  Many people are experiencing spiritual awakening or are in a deep emotional process of acceptance and release, or both.  The key is realizing that it doesn’t all just happen overnight.  We (typically) don’t just wake up to a massive pot of gold at the end of a rainbow one sunny morning, especially if we’ve had trauma, abuse, or addiction in our past.  Basically, happiness is a more natural state of being.  But, when we learn “misery” and limitation in its place, it also makes sense that we may have to learn how to be happy again.  To go even further, we may have to learn how to be happy for the very first time…ever!

Our fears, traumas, abuse, and addictions leave us feeling pretty crappy – it’s true.  It’s not necessarily something we embrace in the spiritual community of “love and light” but it doesn’t make the emotion any less real.  Sometimes the crappy feeling takes over our mind and body to such an extent that it takes great heart and soul effort to overcome them in an emotionally healthy way.  We all have (what we’ll call) “baskets” that we use for our emotions but this can also be detrimental to our recovery if we have one basket in which we place all of our emotions.  For example, if someone has an addiction which has had a very negative effect on their life, they may have an emotional basket labeled “addiction”.  Even when the person has freed themselves from their addiction they continue to carry around the addiction basket.  The anonymous programming of organizations like AA encourage people to carry this addiction basket around with them every day and it then becomes a foundation for all of the emotional baggage in life.  That means that whenever something feels off or wrong in life we can always put it in the “addiction” basket even though “what’s wrong” may have nothing to do with the addiction.  One day we wake up and find that we have chronically created a scapegoat for all that is wrong in our world and we’ve managed to fit it into one (very limited) “basket”.  The basket could be an abusive parent, an untrustworthy relationship, a deep seated fear, or even a financial “issue”.  From there, we tend to take everything we view as being “wrong” and put it into our trauma basket thereby giving our power away to our perception of this one issue as we continue to let it control our lives via our “negative” (uncomfortable) emotions.

d0d04af17343092ca6a5e4a9d15a4ac5Once we have created a basket for our negative experiences, it becomes a habitual pattern to continue to pile more negative experiences into our trauma basket.  What we sometimes fail to understand is that when we are constantly in a place of re-living our negative experiences we are also, however inadvertently, creating more negative experiences.  From here, it gets a little more difficult to find acceptance until we lay down our basket or weave a new one.  It helps to recognize that happiness is actually a learned behavior.  If we’ve been taught in some way to be miserable we can also learn how to be happy instead.  First of all, the fears, traumas, addiction, abandonment, etc. will still be there for a “minute” – regardless of whether or not we choose to focus on it.  It’s a part of our life experience so it never fully “leaves” us but our perception of it, the emotions around it, and whether or not we chose to let it define us can change, will change… if we allow it.  When we’re in the process of Healing from our afflictions, we are really coming to a place of learning to validate and appreciate those feelings which sees us not able to run away from them.  We actually have to allow ourselves to grieve in a healthy way but the emotions may cause us to have looping thoughts that revolve around our basket of misery.  This is when neuroplasticity or changing our mental focus plays a great role in overcoming traumatic experiences in order to Heal.  In these situations we have to learn to focus on our mental focus and find a way to weave happy, loving, blissful experiences into our basket at the same time.  Sometimes we find ourselves having to reach for these Happy experiences because we may not have very many of them or we forgot how it feels to be in a peaceful emotional place.  However, if we focus on happy experiences (past, present, or future) it takes us away from the tunnel vision of solely focusing on the trauma.

When we re-live our negative, addictive, traumatic experiences over and over again we have a harder time “snapping out of it” so to speak.  That’s not to say the issues aren’t real but we also have to focus on more positive experiences first before we begin to see them manifest into our physical reality.  At the same time, when we’re so deeply focused on the trauma we may not see any positivity in our lives even though it may be there in force.  What that ultimately comes down to is what we choose to focus on, our perspective, and whether we’re placing emphasis on a loving, positive, happy perspective or we place our spotlight on the fear, anxiety, and tragedy of the trauma.  This is the part we have to “work” at because our patterned emotions also want to remain, almost like its own “parasitic” energy.  It (truly) takes work to re-train our mental focus, especially when we are uncomfortable in our mind, body, and spirit.  This is where neuroplasticity comes in or “focus on our mental focus”.

60526c9a725effaf3c418ed87a24fc30In my article, Quantum Mechanics of the Soul, I wrote about behavioral patterns and how our awareness of our own patterns changes how we interact with them.  This means that just by being aware of our trauma basket we can begin to change how it affects us.   Therefore, our conscious awareness of the “problem” shows the Universe our intention of Healing from said “problem” which is the first step in the process, recognition.  From here we can begin to consciously interact with the emotions which is when we can shake them out and put them back again in a more positive way.  We’ve also determined that some of us have to “work” a little harder to find those happy, lighter, more loving emotions.  And, that’s okay – actually VERY normal when we are in “distress”!  A great way focus on our mental focus is an exercise I call “Emotional Imagination”.  We’re quite used to hearing that “thoughts create things” and that’s true….to an extent.  The real key to creating with the Law of Attraction is using our Emotional Imagination.  This is when we’re planning our Happiness in the form of a dream vacation, a purposeful job, a prosperous future, a loving relationship, our kid’s gifted accomplishments, a healthy support system, good weather, the perfect friendship, making a mind/body connection, and on and on we go.  As we Emotionally Imagine these memories it’s like a wave of Happiness washing up on our beach of “misery”.  Emotional Imagination is emotionally focusing on how we want to Feel instead of focusing on the “crappy” feeling, but it’s also really Allowing ourselves the opportunity to Feel Good.  The wave loosens the little, irritating grains of sand (what I call “ninja demons”) and it’s up to us to re-integrate these grains of sand on our beach as we let go of the “shock and awe” around our negative experience and embrace our Happiness in its wake. We’re creating the most beautiful sea glass, loosening and smoothing our sharp, jagged traumas until we are no longer giving them our energy….AT ALL!  And, we get to go to the most Amazing places while we weave a new basket into a new reality and a new (trauma-free) Life.
