My Shamanic Burial 21/12/2012

 
As the full moon rises, it shines light on the fullness of my shamanic burial. I feel like I have come full circle in all areas of my life – all is grounded and I am ready to move forward into the unknown.

Twenty years ago I read about a ceremony of death and rebirth call a Shamanic Burial. The participant is buried in a hole they have dug; they are then covered with soil. A small air hole is made around the head and the participant lays here overnight to be at one with the earth.. The article explained the feeling of being reborn and an embrace of the death process. This allows the participant to lose any fear of death, so a full life can be created without fear. I can remember thinking “That would be a cool thing to do”.

In August 2012 an email arrived – as I read it a wave of remembered excitement flowed through me and I knew I would be part of this.

Embrace of the Earth
Mount Warning, Byron Bay Hinterland, NSW
Thursday 20 to Saturday 22 December 2012
 
~ What ‘Embrace of the Earth’ is about ~

 This shamanic burial is a profound way to truly connect with the powerful energy of the Earth. It will also be a celebration of the completion of the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar on the summer solstice, 21 December 2012 and the galactic alignment of our solar system with the milky way. This special event will be held beside the sacred Mount Warning (Wollumbin), where the first morning light touches Australia, and offers a tremendous opportunity to mark the beginning of a new era and your own personal spiritual evolution.

The ‘Embrace of the Earth’ experience has been described as a combination ‘vision quest’ and ‘full body meditation’. Drawing from the Toltec Tradition of Central America, this ceremony is inspired by the intimate connection that the Toltecs have with the land. It is a ceremonial initiation and rite of passage where participants are buried overnight in the earth to receive the powerful healing and loving energies of Mother Earth. You may use this experience to activate deep shifts in consciousness and obtain heightened connection with energies of the earth.

As soon as I committed to doing this something in me shifted, calmness moved through me. When I thought about it too much a feeling of apprehension replaced the calmness.  In those times I would remind myself to breath and that all will be fine. In those beautiful moments when I allow love to enter every part of me, softness descends, all becomes one and my dreams and desires seem possible. All limitations and fear fall away and a clear, bright inevitable path shows itself with certainty. There was so much feeling and knowing in that moment nothing would sway me from this path.

It took 20 years for me to allow this to occur. Over the last 20 years I have been searching, actually I have been searching all my life. I don’t really know what I have been searching for, maybe it has been me. I think it is time to stop searching and start being.

I carefully packed all that I thought I would need for my journey, of course I took much more that I needed which says a lot about my life and the lives of so called civilised humans. We take more than we need. As I entered the plane I felt like I was within the belly of a dragon preparing to slay my own dragon. I know my inner dragon has been guarding buried treasure now is the time for me to dig deep and find my treasures.

From the moment I got off the plane I felt a pressure on me, a feeling of being pushed into the earth. I feel I was already being planted - a reminder that all occurs energetically before it happens physically.

We arrived in the Gold Coast and were greeted by our hosts Alison and Greg who drove us across the border into NSW to their house in Uki at the base of Mt Warning. The burials were to take place upon their property, walking distance from their house.

I met the other participants; there were seven of us in total. That evening we had a lovely vegetarian Mexican feast prepared by our host Greg. The first of my challenges also occurred that evening - the dreaded March fly (AKA Horse Fly). I seemed to be constantly bombarded by one particular fly. That evening I decided I had to become one with the March fly - to shapeshift and be the March fly. As I was still swatting them away on the last day and swatting them away from others I don't think I really succeeded. However, I received a message from the March fly. There is balance in truth - this may sting and bite, but truth is truth nonetheless. I am still integrating this - when I allow whatever to be in my life maybe I will also love March flies - hopefully!

The next morning we arose at 4.15 to prepare for our sunrise walking meditation. Here was my next challenge - walking barefoot to the burial site. It was about a 1/2 kilometre walk that meandered through grass, bush and cowpats. Just when I thought “I can do this”, our main facilitator Michael brought out blindfolds. “You’ve got to be joking,” I screamed to myself, resistance became strong with waves of fear hot on its tail. Quietly we all put on our blindfolds and rested our right hand on the person in front and somehow moved up to the top of the mountain. We removed our blindfolds and greeted the sun. Silence and wonderment replaced the fear and resistance.
 
We then moved to the place where the burials would take place, thankfully the plots were covered with marquees and tarps, so we would be protected from the rain and sun. I was also relieved to see a portaloo about 50 metres from camp.

We chose our grave that had been sacredly drawn out with cowpats.  I laid down next to mine and felt at ease as we meditated. Then the digging began, this was to take most of the day as the tomb had to be deep enough to allow me to roll on my side and not have any part of me above ground. I was blessed to be assisted in my digging by all the facilitators and another participants' partner - a reminder that all we need comes to us.  As I was digging my tomb the left side of my body felt like fluid, it seemed to be sinking in to the earth. On the contrary my right side was rigid holding firm on the earth. To me this symbolised my feeling side is fine with this process, the feminine is already sinking and allowing the process, however, my masculine side was panicked - it was trying to figure out why I would be putting myself through this, it was resisting and pushing against the process.

When I finished the digging I made my grave a little more comfortable by lining it with a printed Om sheet and a couple of cushions. We all then went for a refreshing swim in a waterhole and back to the house for a light dinner. After dinner we were told to collect about 10 sticks from a prepared pile and carry them back up the hill to the burial site. I faced many fears and moved through lots of challenges but this one was to prove most difficult. As I clutched my sticks and started to walk I felt like an invisible wall of fear surrounded me, every step was an effort and my breath seemed to leave me as I gasped for air. I was in a panic, a strange voice exploded in my mind, “what the Fuck are you doing, you can’t do this, what were you thinking”. I felt like I was walking to my death and every part of me resisted it, I started to cry and the child in me was close to having a full on hissy fit.

Lovely Alison could see I was struggling and offered to take my sticks, I felt guilty, even though I just wanted to get rid of them. She asked again and I passed them over. She then helped me to centre and find my breath again. We silently walked up the hill and the panic in me started to recede.

We meditated and then one by one we entered our grave. The sticks were placed over me, then a sheet and finally earth was placed upon the sheet. An air hole was propped open with a stick just above my head. All resistance melted away as I heard the earth hit the roof of my grave. I felt safe as the earth embraced me and made me a part of it.

Throughout the night I experienced serenity, profound insights, panic, fear then calmness. This repeated itself many times over the eight hours I was entombed.  It was a strange and beautiful night, filled with many experiences - the sound of drumming, chanting, rain, the critters of the night and even a cow stampede that was dissipated by our wonderful facilitators.

Thoughts, feeling and knowings flowed through my mind and heart. I thought I was free. I thought I was civilised. I thought I was intelligent. It turns out I am none of these things and yet I am all these things. I lived in the embrace of the earth for a night as humans would have in the past. I lived as a human in conjunction with the earth, not upon her, not separate from her but with her. I take this and mix it with all that I and my ancestors have accumulated to move forward into something new, a co- creation of love.

Before this I believed some control was necessary. This played out in my life as self-control, a controlling of my thoughts and ideas, however I realised this was a learnt behaviour from my father as a way to feel safe. But there is nothing to fear so why control? There is nothing to control. There is nothing to fear. All that I need to know comes in each moment, the expansive way of the universe; the collective wisdom is there in each moment. All I need to do is be present, to know it. If I am busy trying to control in order to feel safe, this will distract me from the moment and I will not feel the wisdom. So what do I do? It is ok to be me. All is one and all is ok.

Lying in my grave overnight made me realise one moment leads to the next. There were many times I laid in the earth fear gripped me like a vice, I couldn't breathe, I couldn’t think. What I could do is move my hips, this is all I could really do in this confined space, however, it was something that I could do to make myself feel better. I moved my hips in the form of a figure eight. This seemed to move the energy building up in my base, sacral and solar plexus chakras. So I moved my hips to create something different and the fear would pass. Then I would lie quietly listening to the whispers of my inner life. Here I realised, I don't really know myself at all. I am an observer of me through the eyes of the outside world. Who I think I am is a concept, it is an illusion based on what others tell me.

I did not automatically become one with the earth; she seemed to reach across and accepted me as the earth, as I accepted her as human. I went into the grave to unlearn all that I had learned, to unravel the wisdom from education, to lose control when there really was none to start with - just a state of mind of control. To move past the illusion of what I think I have created. We all flow from the same source; however, we have different agendas in order to experience different ways of creating for the ever evolving spirit of curiosity and becoming more.

Mother Earth embraced my illusions and I regained my life.
 
 
 

Unfortunately all of the photos of my grave disappeared; all I have are a few photos of the surroundings. Maybe this is an experience I am to hold in my heart and feel it and for you maybe it is for you to imagine how your embrace of the earth would be. Namaste, Denise

The Facilitators, Alison, Michael and Greg were supportive, wise and loving. Throughout the whole process I felt nurtured and safe on all levels. This made it easier for me to delve deep and challenge every aspect of myself, for this was my intent. For more info on Embrace of The Earth - Shamanic Burial and Gudhara Holistic Sanctuary.

Awaken

Awaken to a perception of Love.
 
The world we have been told is reality is a manifestation of the energy that dreamt it into existence. It is your and the collectives conscious and unconscious, feelings, views, perceptions, urgings, wants, needs and beliefs expressed into the physical.
 
We then go about observing what we have created, collect the information and try to change or want more of what we observed often being unaware this is our shadow and light being reflected back.
 
Change your perception and you will change your life. All we need is Love, Denise♥

You are a gift

Today pull back the curtain of what you think is real and peek behind the veil. You will see and feel your essence, the expanded you, the truth of you and the love that is there for you.

Look deeply at this reflection that is peering back at you through the veil, give yourself a wink and say "I Love You". This is source creating through you, feel that feeling of love flowing through you activating even deeper truths.

Be dazzled by the brightest of your love and clarity. Be immersed in this stillness and peace, feel the transformative power of unconditional love - sit and wait for my inner instructions and while you are waiting, breath love into the hearts of all and know the greatest gift you can give is to see the divine in everyone right now, then that allows them to be it. You are Divine, Denise♥♥♥

I'm Back

I'm back, being reborn from the womb of Mother Earth and releasing all to GrandFather Fire. My Shamanic Burial experience was extremely physical, profound, expansive and challenging on all levels.

I will post some experiences in the days to come for at this moment I am a little dazed and the fullness of my experience is still finding the words to describe it.

In the meantime to welcome you to the cosmic party here is a message from your higher self "I Love you, I will always love you, however and whatever you choose to be or do - freedom is in you." , Namaste, Denise

December 20, 21 and 22nd 2012

 
I am going bush for a 3 day ceremony for the Solstice. I won't have mobile or internet access so I will post my writing for the next few days. Enjoy!!

December 20th
I am travelling to Byron bay today for 3 days to participate in a Shamanic Burial tomorrow evening. I am blessed to be accompanied by one of my students who has become a wonderful friend. This is the apex of a 20 year spiritual journey and I don’t really know what to expect from myself. I do know it is time to stop searching - I will place all ideas, concepts, beliefs, paths, into the loving arms of Mother Earth and thank her for the opportunity to experience all I have created upon her. I will Surrender to my Divine Will, and allow all to come up for healing or recognition. It is time to let go, to honour all that I have done. Whatever I have created, whatever I have accomplished, I will no longer cling to it.....I let it go.... I move on, in order to create more - accomplish more. Well, this is my intention, somehow lying in a grave, in the dark overnight that I have lovingly dug and prepared, sounds quite wonderful, however, the reality could be something very different – I will let you know what happens next week. 
 
Maybe today you can have your own Gaia meditation.  Be a living expression of the Universal Life force; allow it to flow through you, to inspire, to illuminate the love in all. Today say to yourself, "May I open to that great awareness which is my true nature, and may my actions flow from that awareness." Feel Mother Earth for she is a living Cosmic Being. Walk or run barefoot upon grass and feel the energies of the Earth. Go for walks on the beach and feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. Be still and get in touch with Nature. Talk to the nature spirits and all the members of the Nature Kingdom. We are all connected. We are all One. Give thanks to Lady Gaia for her generosity and Love. Om Shanti Denise

Summer and Winter Solstice 21stDecember
Happy Summer Solstice and Mid Summer blessings – As you experience the longest day of year, celebrate life, bounty, grace, abundance and all that are given to you from the Sun. Here is a time to pause so you can view your life from a distance in order to gain a true perspective. The Solar Rays are at their brightest, illuminating all things, your emotions, your thoughts and your motives. Here you can see all and make any adjustments. Breathe the outer sun into your inner sun and feel all move together - a sacred union with all.  

For our friends in the Northern Hemisphere - Happy Winter Solstice and Yule Blessings -As you experience the longest night of the year be reminded that night is a time of dream, vision and a wonderful journey into the depths of oneself, the darkness of unknown possibility. Celebrate the Sun's return in all its power–breathe in golden light and allow the sun to shine light on all your possibilities, so they can be manifesting into the physical. If you like, light a candle and give thanks for the warmth and light of the sun. Breathe your inner sun out into the outer sun and feel all move together – a sacred union with all.

December 21st
So here we are – the doorway is open. We have been here for a long time and as you make your focus love and not fear you will awaken to this realisation. The truth of you has always been here, waiting for you to align with it. Whatever has been – let it be, for all that matters is what you choose from this moment – so make it count. You are creating from a whole new platform, beyond any perceived limitations. Feel your fullness, feel your divinity. Here no time and no space exist, for all is here and all occurs simultaneously. Our Divine Self is all knowing, it is multi-dimensional and one with Source and so when we are connected we can access things way beyond the limitations of third dimensional time and space. Open your heart, feel the love of all. From this moment no longer will we make fear, instead we will make love in each moment. In love and Light, Denise
 
December 22nd
Close your eyes and imagine you have just arrived on this beautiful planet. You have no pre-conceived ideas or thoughts about what you or others should experience or do. Open your eyes - look through new eyes and see infinite, possibilities and freedom everywhere. You are free.

Hold this feeling and imagine a point of light radiating from your heart. This light represents your deep intention, the wisdom of your soul, often beyond the comprehension of your conscious mind. Focus on this place and affirm to yourself – “I am guided by the light of my own soul and I am guided by the light of my own intention.” Namaste, Denise♥♥♥

Meditation Class

 
Meditation Gathering - coming together to feel our natural state of being, in a space of allowing all to be as it is. Tonight 7pm, Friday 10 am, $15 – Your Heart is Stronger than you Think.
 
The open heart is open to joy, pain, life and death. To be open means to flow, not to hold yourself rigid in fear and resistance. Your true nature is openness. You do not have to achieve it for you are open. It is the mind that is closed, locked into certain belief systems that arise from your conditioned experience.
 
There are many paths and many truths. The way to find what is right for you is to ask questions with an open heart, gain information with an open heart and then feel what resonates with you. Take the time to still yourself, just be and listen through your heart and you will hear you. At the same time feel into your body; gauge its responses and with time your inner voice will become a rich source of wisdom.

 Become aware and sense your body…..connect deeply with your breathing, imagine you become your breath as it moves into its own natural rhythm. Allow thoughts to float by in your mind, without connecting to them… allowing all to be as it is…….Open your heart and feel into the very being of you. Feel the breath of life - illuminating a new story of you - raise your vibration, be who you are, feel love and joy and see all from a higher perspective.♥ Namaste Denise♥

Expansion

The Mayan Calendar is a measurement of consciousness and it shows us that a shift, a leap forward in consciousness is occurring and will ever expand.

You are an eternal being and your essence is constantly expanding. Are you keeping up with you - if you are resisting, you will be feeling tension, urgings and even pain.

Be still and listen to the whispers of your heart – for these whispers will point you in the direction of your expansion and growth.

Here you can realise all your dreams and desires. You are shifting from an energy of fear "I want stuff to be happy" to love "I am happy, I don't need stuff, however I can create all the stuff I desire for the joy of creating and expanding". All is as it is, Namaste Denise.♥♥♥

Reiki Share

 
Tonight is the last Reiki share evening for 2012 - 7pm $15. Feel the essence of you.♥

In this week of expansion, tonight we honour stillness. We open our hearts to receive the love, wisdom and empowerment of the Universal Life Force in preparation to move into our fullness, into a space of love.

Here no time and no space exists for all is here and all occurs simultaneously. Our Divine Self is all knowing, it is multi-dimensional and one with Source and so when we are connected we can access things way beyond the limitations of third dimensional time and space.

Open your heart, feel the love of all. From this moment no longer will we make fear, instead we will make love in each moment. In love and Light, Denise ♥♥♥

Love is always the Answer

 
Sometimes, when we view circumstances that occur beyond our comprehension, we spend a lot of our time thinking about" how sad, it's not fair or what have we done wrong".
These circumstances are beyond our understanding so instead of using your precious energy to hook into fear - let us be compassionate, sending love and hold a vision of a balanced, healed community.
This is something I say to myself when I feel myself being carried away by my emotions. "I would prefer that the world and all people didn't have to experience any disasters or pain, however this is the way it is at this moment. So instead of wishing something has not occured, I will do all that I can to bring about healing and rebuilding, however that may be." Namaste, Denise

Friday, December 14, 2012

This day

 
I welcome and greet this glorious day.
I allow this day to unfold as I embrace each delicious moment fully.
By being fully immersed in the magic of each moment, I will not be distracted by thoughts of yesterday or tomorrow, for this will water down and even erode my dreams and desires.
Dream on, Denise♥♥

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS December 13 - AEDT 7.42pm, GMT 8.42pm, PST 12.42 am
The New Moon always gives you an opportunity to spiral within. This illuminates the parts of you that are hidden, in order to bring healing, balance and a realisation of Oneness. Sagittarius new moon brings us hope of a different perspective, allowing us to expand. Expansion will occur as we trust the process of life. The wheel of life is constantly moving - Embrace your spiritual warrior, embrace change and allow your fun, playful self to discover the adventure of life. Combine your personal wisdom together with your intuition to create a magical result and feel it flow through your body, mind and soul.

 12.12.12 energies opened a door into a new chapter of your life - are you going to walk through it? Take a breath and step through. Open yourself to excitement, curiosity and adventure, live your life, stop thinking about it and just do it. Embrace all aspects of you, no more pushing away what you think you don't like. Ask your higher self to alert you to anything that is hurting, raw or wounded within you - then love, cuddle and embrace all these parts of you. Would you turn away from a wounded person or animal? For that is what you do when you reject these parts of you - now is the time to be kind, gentle and patient with you.

Imagine a point of golden light with in your heart centre - see it growing into a golden flame. Feel its beautiful warmth sending waves of relaxation through you. This is your light of Awareness, a guiding presence that is always with you. Allow your being to rest in this place. Trust this light knows you, always revealing your truth and essence to you. Namaste, Denise ♥♥♥

Star Visioning - The Lovers

Star Visioning class tonight 7pm - working with the energies of The Lovers and Sacred Union
 
A lover comes into your life to reflect your love, your higher self - the love never comes from that person, it feels that way because they are in love - in a state of being where no fear exists. Breathe love in and breathe love out - make a conscious effort to be a lover of life and you will feel like you are making love in every moment of your life.

We all have a feminine and a masculine side to us. In Jungian psychology, it is termed the anima and animus: the male has an inner feminine, while the female has an inner masculine. Neither is more or less important than the other - they simply offer us different and very necessary parts of our being for our soul to create through. Allow them come together in your heart and feel the oneness of you, the eternal unconditional love that you are. Namaste, Denise ♥♥

Let it Be

Today, celebrate the creative energy of the universe, the earth, and of your own being. Become aware of your creative energy, however it chooses to express itself. What inspires you? what fills your heart with joy? Allow yourself to enter into the stream of creative energy that is constantly flowing within and without. Love is your natural state of being.

Allow all the experiences of your life to be the inspiration that clarifies and propels you forward towards your desires. When you let the past be where it is - in the past, you are free to move forward with complete freedom - all is possible. Namaste, Denise♥♥♥

Life


 
Life is a way for the Universe/you to experience itself. It is a creativity at its most sacred and it is you. Sacred in the way that it is the animator of your soul. Life is your body, it is a manifestation of you…. If you can create your body, there is no end to what you can create…….. Breath in the breathe of life - be present in each moment, you are free to be who you are, feel into the essence of you, the larger part of you …. The divine, the grace, the you that you are……….feel into this eternal, ever expanding wonderment of you and know a knowingness of your truth - Bliss and joy. Namaste, Denise♥

Meditation Classes - Cutting the Ties

Meditation Gathering - coming together to feel our natural state of being, in a space of allowing all to be as it is. Tonight 7pm, Friday 10 am, $15 - Cutting the ties that bind - As we move closer to a new way of being we must free ourselves from all the various layers of false identity and security that hold us back and bound to the past.

Today say to yourself -I participate actively in my transformation. I listen to myself as my feelings tell me when I am ...holding on, when I am being rigid and resistant . I feel the difference when I let go and allow the energy of transformation to carry me forward into freedom.

Be Present

 
Whenever you leave the moment and move into the fear of the future or the regret of the past, you separate yourself from you and your experience of all through love. You will feel sad because you miss yourself and the experience of your higher self blending and expressing through you - illuminating, enlivening your being and making you and your body at ease, happy to just be.

When you are out of alignment you won't see and feel yourself as love but as fear and this will cause suffering. Meanwhile back in your heart, in your centre, in the moment all is as it is, for the truth has always been the truth. The moment exists in every moment awaiting you to be present.

Can you feel the quickening as we move towards the Cosmic Party of 21/12/2012.
Open your heart and allow the love of the Universe to blend with you.
This will illuminate all resistance and out of date beliefs that are holding you in fear.
When we allow the healer within to show up truly anything is possible;
We take responsibility for our own healing,
we claim our unlimited power and ability to live our life by Design and Choice.
We not only change the world…
We begin to create the highest vision ever held for our own lives,
the world around us, and all of humanity.

Namaste, Denise♥♥

Expand

 
Today as with each day, you have the opportunity to be fully present in each moment, in each breathe.

In this moment call back your precious energy that you may have sent out with your thoughts, worries and needs into the past or the future.

With all your energy present, you are fully primed to step forward into a life of growth and expansion where all possibilities exist. Do or think something different - see yourself as a pioneer preparing for a new interpretation of reality.
Om Shanti, Denise♥

Wherever you are physically or emotionally, know this moment, this place where you are at contains the information, the solutions to move you towards your desires. Be present and allow all to be there in your life, then you will see and feel inspired action.

You have what it takes to be you. Namaste, Denise♥♥♥

You are Love

Love is beyond thoughts, feelings and emotions. It is a state of being, an expression of the all - fully experienced by being in each moment. Don't think about being in the moment, be in each moment. Be the courageous loving being you are. 

One thing I have noticed, that is a big truth to me is - The emergence of love -my true Spiritual Self shows herself in each moment, through any place within me of least resistance. It feels like flood gates opening as my Life Force breaks free of what I have been told I should believe.

This often shows itself in the physical world as tears. I let them flow to wash away the old. Now I can see through new eyes, revealing another truth - "At the heart of all is love." Be you, Om Shanti, Denise♥

Embrace

 
Can you feel the energies of the eclipse moving you forward into a new way - a way that is more aligned with your highest path.

As you move along your path, seeking your truth & manifesting your dreams, you will from time to time come across an obstacle. This will bring up fear - fear is an illusion that holds you back, not than an intuitive message telling you not to do something.

Fear announces you have reached the boundaries of your comfort zone. Celebrate, for you are on the right path as your dreams are always beyond your comfort zone!♥ Namaste, Denise

Meditation Classes - A New Path

Meditation Gathering - coming together to feel our natural state of being, in a space of allowing all to be as it is. Tonight 7pm, Friday 10 am, $15 - A New Path.
 
Feel the energy of the lunar eclipse open a space where all is possible. As you connect to this place your heart and mind open to the knowledge that all is occurring simultaneously, beyond space and time. As you embrace and love all parts of the multidimensional self, you understand, reawaken or heal, going beyond any limitations to create a new path.

 Look to yourself for inspiration – allow the manifestation of others to inspire and move you to your rich source of creativity. Each of you is a spark, a stream of consciousness – expanding, growing, becoming more, allowing life to move through you.
 
Start from where you are, transform and free yourself from all the various layers of false identity and security that hold you back and keep you bound to the past. Say to yourself -I participate actively in my transformation. I listen to myself as my feelings tell me when I am holding on, when I am being rigid and resistant. I feel the difference when I let go and allow the energy of transformation to carry me forward into freedom, onto a new path.
 
♥Take a deep breath, feel yourself ready to step forward onto your path of creative joy. Every great adventure starts with a step….Allow yourself to wander into your higher self into the "wouldn't it be nice" scenario and plant seeds from this heightened intelligence, creativity, courage and compassion into the garden of your mind.♥ Be you, Denise♥

Full Moon in Gemini & Lunar Eclipse

FULL MOON IN GEMINI & LUNAR ECLIPSE, NOVEMBER 29th AUST EDST 1.45am, NOVEMBER 28th GMT 2.45pm, PST 6.45am

 A full moon brings about completion and celebration, lighting our inner world and illuminating our deepest desires. Let’s celebrate the unison of the twin aspects of Gemini. We have the opportunity to allow all parts of us to retain their uniqueness while fully accepting these parts – bringing us to a state of oneness… of peace. Here we can celebrate the diversity of Oneness and its many ways of communication and creation through the magnificence of your physical – we are all connected and all part of the same light and love – so let’s party and enjoy our abundance as we share in love and joy.

 Lunar Eclipses open a void beyond time and space so you can access and feel your eternal being. The Moon... the Goddess... the silvery liquid light. I draw down this cleansing, clearing, healing light... transforming my whole being. Filled now with Grace, Gratitude and Love for my life and all. I can now start to tell a new story........

 Lunar eclipses alter your perceptions and allow you to see things in a new light. These new personal insights or "Aha" moments occur because the way you 'reflect' is altered. When you experience a lunar eclipse, you are experiencing the shadow of the Earth. This may illuminate your shadow side, bringing to the surface unconscious behaviours, habits and emotional reactions. It’s time to let go, let out, let loose the entanglements and walls which you think protect you, for this is what is trapping you in the life you don't want. Whatever you resist will persist, becoming an exhausting power struggle with life.

It is time Rise up, step forward and beyond - Love yourself, come to peace with you, right here and right now, this allows healing to begin and a new adventure begins…..I welcome and greet this day and allow this day to unfold as I embrace each moment fully. By being fully immersed in the gift of each moment, I will not be distracted by thoughts of yesterday or tomorrow that may erode this preciousness. As it is, Denise♥

Let Go to become You

 
Let Go, Let Go, Let Go. We are moving from a illusion of fear into the clarity of Love. Fear divides - Love embraces. This is happening now - 21/12/2012 is just the date we have decided to celebrate this on - The Cosmic Party.

This date adds to 11, the number of remembrance of who you truly are. Step into you, awaken to the truth of you and be free. In your freedom limitations do not exist and you allow everyone on this planet to like or not like you.

Step into the new paradigm, the adventure continues............ Be embraced, Denise

Crafting

Each day is another opportunity to perfect my craft - I don't really know what to call my craft, so I call it my truth.  My craft moves through everything I do - my work with clients, my classes, my writing and every experience encountered on a daily basis.

Each day I write what comes to me. I feel all exists as a mirror to help me unveil my truth. What I write here is pretty much how it comes, so please forgive any spelling or punctuation mistakes.

This is what I do and it has taken me a very, very long time to allow myself to say this. I share my work as a way to assist all to find their truth, for us all to feel empowered by our creative nature - whether you agree or disagree with me doesn't matter.

Today be inspired to move towards your truth whatever that may be and let us all feel empowered by who we truly are. Thank you all for your inspiration. Namaste, Denise♥♥♥

The Goddess of the Lotus

As the mysterious moon rises, so does the Goddess of the lotus.
She is the embodiment of unconditional love and the flower of life.
As she moves toward you, feel loving waves of liquid, healing blue light flow over and within you.
You look into each others eyes and she smiles, awakening your goddess within.  
Tears of happiness filled with the dew of compassion, shine like radiant stars from her eyes as she feels you remember your true origins.
Become an embodiment of the flower of life and allow the essence of your dreams to give birth to all possibilities.
In Love and Light, Denise♥♥♥

Love is everywhere

 
Most people look for the sacred in the unusual, the spiritual or supernatural experiences. As you awaken to your truth, the divine, mystical mysteries will be found everywhere - found in the ordinary, the mundane and the natural aspects of life - softly whispering to you….." At the heart of everything is love. Be who you are, for love flows through you - it is you. Allow your eternal, infinite, inner being to create a life of wonderment, expansion and joy." Om Shanti, Denise♥♥♥

You are Multi - dimensional

We are multi-dimensional beings and all things happen in this moment, so it seems possible we can be at any place at any time, the problem is allowing our mind to truly believe this. Once we break free of the confines of our beliefs anything is possible – Faith is a knowing, a feeling, the evidence you can’t see, don’t swap faith for the evidence you think you can see. ♥

You are already enlightened

Today, I willingly allow forgiveness of myself, others, situations and places that are holding me back from who I know I am. I breathe love and life into my dreams and visions, allowing myself to see and feel with love, compassion and understanding. My clear insight and knowing is reflected in my outer sight and knowing.

I Love to sit under a tree and feel the loving embrace of its infinite wisdom. I feel the presence of spirit all around me, above and below. As I become one with this meditation, the mists of illusion part and I behold my path. 

Find and feel what you love to do, what connects you to your higher self and you will feel divine wisdom and love. Take the time to feel into you and what makes you feel calm, loving and peaceful and you will be enlightened as Buddha was. Om Shanti, Denise♥

Birth

In the after glow of the eclipse energy - welcome to a new beginning. Within every breath and every moment is the opportunity to start a fresh.

Feel a rebirth within your heart, breathe in the energy of life and breathe out the energy of life. Connect to the eternal cycle of creativity as your breath gives life to life. Draw down the illuminating, love energy of the Sun and the creative, love energy of the Moon and feel them merge within your heart.

Allow this sacred marriage to reveal the wonderment and wholeness of you, as your dreams and desires are birthed. Life has a way of living, time to enjoy and surrender to this intelligence - let go, allow, flow and watch your life spring into being. Allow the change, Denise♥

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO & SOLAR ECLIPSE

 
NEW MOON IN SCORPIO & SOLAR ECLIPSE - NOVEMBER 14th AUST ESDT 9.07am - NOVEMBER 13th GMT 10.07pm, PST 2.07pm. In Sydney Partial eclipse begins 14 Nov at 7:07 AM The Moon touches the Sun's edge. Maximum Eclipse at 8:03 AM and ends at 9.04am...
- to check out times for other parts of Australia go click here.

The New Moon always gives you an opportunity to spiral within. This illuminates the parts of you that are hidden, in order to bring healing and balance. Scorpio encourages us to delve deeper into our innermost fears, darkness and beauty observing and feeling all theses aspects of you and embrace them with love and unity.

Dive in, be brave and new horizons will open up. As you embrace duality deep healing will embrace all creation where you will feel peace and acceptance of yourself – out of the ashes the phoenix will rise.

Embrace all with love and feel your consciousness expanding - expand into who you are, adaptable, creative, full of ideas and dreams. The more you dive into you, the more you will expand and your life will expand accordingly.

It doesn't matter whether you see the eclipse or not for you will most certainty feel it, where ever you are upon our beautiful blue and green planet. As the sun is blocked by the moon, a black velvety, matrix of no space or time will give you the opportunity to expand into a whole new way of being.
 
Eclipses are the celebration of big changes – They magnify all we are yet to embrace and love about ourselves and all. Feel the eclipse as a gateway - connecting you to your evolution of consciousness and step into the new paradigm of love as you transform the old beliefs still holding you back. Open yourself to excitement..., curiosity and adventure, live your life, stop thinking about it and just do it.
Namaste, Denise♥

Star Visioning

Star Visioning class tonight 7pm - working with the energies of The Hierophant and the Inner Teacher.

 Those who seek guidance learn that they must also look within for answers. Focus on your convictions and examine your values and belief systems. Say to yourself "I thank all of my beliefs and ideas for they have brought me to where I am now - it is now time to let go of all that no longer serves me in order for me to create more that is aligned with me now."
 
 If you are not sure what you need to let go, listen and feel into yourself over the next few days and the answers will come. Namaste, Denise♥

Remembrance Day

 
Today is a day of remembrance, gratitude and deep thanks for all that have experienced duality and war for us, so we can know peace.
 
In the past we have thought “if there is peace out there - there will be peace within us”, however what you perceive to be reality is a reflection of your thoughts and beliefs. It is time to find the peace within, the remembrance of our true self, our radiant light and inspiration to all.
 
As Ghandi said “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Walk through the gateway of 11:11 feel yourself being embraced with love as you transform and heal duality into oneness. We are one, Denise♥

The Shift

 
Can you feel the shift - Allow the old to fall away as you let go of who you think you are so you can be with the illuminating energies of the upcoming eclipse and new moon.

 Within you reside great treasures - vast reserves of strength, courage, wisdom, compassion and love. Open your heart and acknowledge your treasures that live within, for this calls forth infinite treasures from out there.
 
You have so much worth, listen to the whispers from your heart, for it is time to create the life your soul has been nudging you toward. Let your truth be unveiled. Namaste, Denise♥

Love

As you read this you are being enveloped in love, the breathe of life - the very stuff that brings balance to all things, the Universal life force. This is your natural state of being, open your heart and let it in. 

Unconditional love encircles your fears, anxieties, hurts and expectations, transforming all into love - into balance. The illusion of unbalanced thinking melts away - you now become love, gratitude and grace - seeing and feeling the perfection of all.

Love is a state of being, not an emotion to make you feel good when you think something is missing, for when you become love you will see and feel that nothing is missing. As it is, Denise♥

Sydney MBS

I am at the Sydney Mind Body Spirit festival today steeped in the inspiring images and work of my Teachers,  Martine and Toni  Salerno at The Blue Angel Stand - F51. Come and say hello - I'm always ready for a chat and would love to see you.
I have chosen a card from Toni's deck of oracle cards GAIA ORACLE - here is our message for the day. 

Sacred Journey 

Life Cycles, Family, Transformation 

Life is a physical journey through time and space, yet it is also a spiritual journey that transcends both time and space. Physically we are born of the earth and to the earth we shall return. Yet spiritually we are never born and we never die, we never come and we never leave. This card reminds you that we are each so much more than our physical realities. In fact, from our soul’s perspective, this current life is just one page in a never-ending book which is the eternal story of life. We are all characters in a play and we have each chosen different roles. Your family is a central part of this journey; each member plays their respective roles, each member your co-star and partner. Each play is designed for maximum dramatic effect otherwise it would all get very boring. In effect, we are all actors and we are each required to play our roles well. It is through our human drama we expand our understanding of love. The different roles we play and the people we encounter help us grow. Through drama we come to understand just how sacred life is. Thank your soul for the journey. 

Affirmation

The role I play in this life is transient
I am in essence a being of light
My family members are some of my greatest teachers
All human drama helps me expand my awareness of love
My soul is not confined by time and space

Meditation Class - 11.11

Meditation Gathering - coming together to inquire into our true nature, in a space of allowing all to be as it is. Tonight 7pm and Friday at 10am, $15 - The theme for meditation classes this week is Remembrance.

This is the remembrance of who you truly are, moving you to a deeper feeling and understanding of all. It is the conscious effort of reflecting on and listening to your internal feelings and thoughts that connect us to the heart of the universe.

As your remembrance expands, your consciousness, your view of the world and your place in it, leads you to the truth of you, the world and the Universe.Namaste, Denise♥♥♥

Today, you may like to say to yourself. “I am in the process of unfolding,fulfilling, positive change. I breathe in the fullness and richness of Life, The Universe. I observe with joy, as life abundantly supports and supplies me with more good than I can imagine. I now express health, happiness, prosperity and peace of mind.”
