Our Era of Gender Fluidity

Uncategorized Feb 17, 2022
Our world is coming into a fertile time when we realize gender is not actually binary. Masculine and feminine are two points on a continuum along which we move throughout our day and our activities. We are more in our Yang side when we're building and implementing, more in our Yin side when being creative and receiving guidance.
 
Gender is so fluid for some that they live the whole continuum, changing their look with their mood.  Others prefer expressing a gender different from how their body appears, perhaps for a lifetime, perhaps for a time.
 
A dear friend chooses to add the other gender to his sense of self, keeping his beard even as s/he identifies more with his/her feminine, enjoying nail polish and soft garments.  Others feel so gender neutral that defining themselves by gender makes no sense.
 
Gender becomes a choice we can make and revise to reflect the qualities of our inner world. What if we cease to have gender be a definition and instead an...

Council of Twelve Guidance for 2022 tumultuous times

Uncategorized Jan 03, 2022

“Greetings and radiant blessings from the Realms of Light.  We greet your heart and encourage it to keep opening, even in the midst of the chaos of these times.  Open-hearted loving is called for now – meeting everyone, no matter what their persuasions, with unconditional love.

What is going to happen here?  So many widely differing “truths” and so much media-induced fear.

From our view beyond reality, we see possibilities of a great awakening, of many evolving to an inner-directness that allows them to find the beat of their own drummer.  Already many have left former employ to pursue their true interests, many businesses started, creative dreams actualized.

What kind of world do you want to live in?  If it has happiness in it, stop all news input now!  What were once investigative reporters have become one-sided opinion makers.  Use the time to watch inspiring, spiritually uplifting podcasts, take workshops to uplevel your...

My Path Of Mysticism

Uncategorized Sep 02, 2021

It was never my goal to become a Mystic.

I began studying religion in college. 

While working in my second church, I realized I could feel no sense of "Spirit" there. 

It felt more like a business than a holy place. 

For years, I had been very active in the Methodist church, as a local, state-wide and regional officer in youth fellowship. Despite this work in the church, I found myself, at 27 years of age, doubting if God even existed. 

Shortly after this time, I began dancing with the Sufis and learning more about their traditions.  

Attending their Universal Worship Services, I loved that scriptures were read from eight different spiritual traditions (the Bible, Quran, Zoroastrian, Hinduism, Buddhism, and others).  In their Zikrs and Dances of Universal Peace, I had profound experiences of "touching the Divine". 

In the 1980's, I sat with Pir Vilayet Khan, head of the Sufi order, and...

Stream Of Guided Wisdom

channeling spirit Mar 23, 2021
Change is afoot. At this cusp of an age, the whole world is changing, basic assumptions are being challenged. What seemed secure no longer does. To stay balanced, sink your roots into that which is unchangeable, the core of your being, the Light at your center.  Collaborating with guidance helps you stay in that center.
 
Guidance comes in many forms and comes every time you ask, though you may not perceive it. It's easy to miss - the "still small voice" can seem like your own mind, though it may feel more calm, peaceful, wise. Guidance may also arrive in a strong hunch, that moment when your intuitive field gets activated, when you have a gut feeling. 
 
You may be guided through a scent, a sound, or a synchronicity of music, words, or images. Wise Prayer:  "Guide my words, my thoughts, my actions."  Once you request, expect an internal sense of what to say, where to go, what to do. When you partner with guidance, you walk in the center of your path...

You Were Made For This

I am sharing the words of the respected Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés today, as she is a powerful voice for trauma-recovery, healing, and living a soul-centered life. This article is especially apt for these times.

I will be bringing a series of live channelings with The Council Of Twelve to further comment on how to navigate these troubled times. You can tune-in through my Facebook page or subscribe to my newsletter to be notified about all of my offerings.

"Stand up and show your soul.
 
In any dark time, there is a tendency to veer toward fainting over how much is wrong or un-mended in the world. Do not focus on that. There is a tendency to fall into being weakened by dwelling on what is outside your reach, by what cannot yet be. Do not focus there. That is spending the wind without raising the sails. We are needed, that is all we can know. And though we meet resistance, we more so will meet great souls who will hail us, love us and guide us, and...

Reclaiming the Matriarch

Finally, we are coming to honor and appreciate the Crone, the font of wisdom a woman becomes after a life well-lived and lessons well learned.  I believe though, we are missing an important stage of life in our usual paradigm, the stage of Matriarch.  That gives us four stages: Maiden, Matron, Matriarch, and Crone.

Matriarch is the woman who has raised her children and completed her obligations as an active parent, or one who has devoted her 30s and 40s to establishing her career and who reaches mid-life ready to step into her power.  One therapist calls this the “Dangerous Woman” because she is likely to set aside all that stands in the way of her post-menopausal zest for life, and put herself first.  She may leave off caretaking others as she carves out a place for what she wants.

Women in their 50s and 60s, even 70s who validate their right to be important, for their needs to matter, and their work to be meaningful may leave the nest they’ve...

You deserve more of yourself​!

You deserve more of yourself! I’m impressed with how much we can transmute in our physical body and life, simply by bringing in our Light Body and living from our multi dimensional self. So simple, though it takes years of devotion to self love, meditation, conscious movement, and shifting our thoughts to arrive at this as our default. When it does, even for some days out of the week, life feels brighter.

A dear friend last summer had the courage to point out how often I would complain, seemingly justifiable complaints, but taking up too much real estate in my head and our precious time together. Really hard to hear!  Didn’t fit my picture of myself!  Became one of the greatest gifts a friend could give me!

For a while, I had little to say if I couldn’t find something to complain about and could see how it was a bonding technique where I grew up. Then, I realized not letting myself complain gave me more of “now”, more quietness in my mind,...

Spiral Through Chakras Meditation

chakra healing meditation May 10, 2020

Come live in your heart.  This is a meditation to take up residence in your heart and your core.  You’ll be invited to bring your consciousness into each chakra, which are the energy centers in the center of your body.  Each chakra connects the subtle bodies to the physical and are found at the crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, navel, and perineum.

The Meditation:  Take a deep breath and allow yourself to center.  Then imagine seeing your body like a lighthouse with you at the Light at the top.  Imagine taking the spiral stairs down and around the center, the core of your body.  As you imagine stepping on each stone step, bring your consciousness down with you which signals to your sub-conscious you are creating a new ground of being.

Move slowly, allowing yourself to make two to 3 spirals around your central core between each chakra.  Pause at each chakra until “you” are fully there, as if each is a landing in...

My Long Journey to Wholeness

Reading about other’s journeys from mental illness to mental health brought to mind my journey from depression that became chronic and verged on suicidal in the late 70’s, though now I know it was massive repression taught to us descendants of Nebraska homesteaders.  What a shock when my marriage failed, for I’d excelled in all the courses about homemaking and was a good wife by farm standards, though I had no emotional life and knew nothing about how to live with an alcoholic who had psychotic breaks.

My hard-working stock would say: just move on, put it behind you and keep going, a fine recipe for repression.  I plunged myself into my work of helping open new community residential alternatives for the mentally challenged.  As long as I was achieving, I knew I was ok.

I was haunted, however, in my personal life by the shadow of multiple molestations from my toddler days to puberty (totally out of my awareness for another 15 years).  My first...

Dissolving the Effects of Abuse

For many of us wounded sexually as children, intimacy and sexuality are a struggle between trying to consistently feel our sexual feelings or give up caring about relationships.  Incest and centuries of repressing the feminine and truncating the masculine (in us all) make intimacy difficult for many, often hard work, and sometimes frought with triggers.  I feel healing such pervasive effects requires we come to live in our deeper feminine, the true nature that lies beneath the wounds.  At our core we must be whole and I want us to find our way back to that wholeness and original innocence.

I love doing therapy with the heroic people who’ve not only survived incest and childhood horrors, but manage to have a life while freeing themselves of being ruled by the past.  My guides have joined me in committing to find faster, kinder ways for survivors to heal than reliving memories and being victim to the pain again and again.  I studied soul retrieval as...
