Here is a little meditation you can do today to open up your awareness and connect to the moon:
A Journey of Transformation — As seen in Radiance Magazine July/Aug 2017
I was in no way prepared for the awakening that was about to occur…
It was the summer of 2007. My mother passed away the year before and her death devastated me. I was in fear around finances and had yet to land a job in the field I was working so hard towards.
The last thing I felt I should be doing was running off to Peru on a spiritual journey.
But I had such a profound healing experience with the amazing Shaman from Chile, Marcella Lobos, that when she suggested I go with the Four Winds Society, I tuned in and listened.
When we landed in Cusco, the music that came on the plane was my mother’s favorite song by the artist Enya and I knew then that I had her blessing.
The moment I stepped upon the land I could feel a peaceful vibration. The air was clean and crisp, the people smiling and friendly. I felt as though I had gone back in time, and in a way I had.
We all got on a big bus and headed to the Sacred Valley. As we passed the snowcapped mountains (called the Apus) I could feel their energy and strength in every fiber of my being. We learned about the medicine men and women of the Andes, the Q’ero. I heard the word Ayni for the first time and the idea of reciprocity as a Universal law. I understood being open to give and receive is at the core of their teachings.
Although I had not yet fully claimed my role as Shaman I could feel the call begin to rise and was honored to be answering.
When I came home from that trip to Peru my life unfolded in unimaginable ways. Insecurities that had once plagued me began to disappear. I was finally connecting to my spirit guides and trusting my intuition like never before.
Two years later, I was guided by spirit to open my home as the Orange County Healing Center. I began leading groups to the sacred sites of Peru and England. On New Year’s Eve 2009, I lead a group to Peru to anchor in the masculine and feminine energies. While the Peruvians were dancing in the streets we headed up to the Temple of the Moon in the pouring rain to install medicine rites under the stars. It was magical and I feel honored to have been there.
Dear Tribe! Can you feel the stillness in the air? The quiet after the storm? There is a new energy on earth and those of you who are “hidden healers” are awakening. Stay true to your beliefs and tune into your intuition. If you make a mistake see it as a life lesson instead of beating yourself up. Being kind to oneself is the only way to grow.
Listen to this song I learned in Ibiza, Spain while in a sweat lodge and watch the video I made in Italy…..feel the ancient energy all around you and learn how to trust your inner knowing.
A great way to shift your consciousness when your mind is running and you can’t get out of your head, is just repeat the word ‘LOVE‘ over and over until you no longer hear the mind chatter. Breathe and repeat until the mind is clear. This works well when the mind is overwhelmed with thought, causing you anxiety. I like to ask myself, “Does this thought serve me?” If it doesn’t serve you, it’s wasting your energy — and that’s energy that could be used to create something beautiful! Today, listen to your mind and see how you can shift.
