Emotional Addictions

We all know about physical addictions – whether it be food, alcohol or drugs – and how it can destroy one’s health, well-being and sense of self and esteem

What about the emotions we are addicted to?

The memories we have stored in our minds through positive and negative experiences love it when you hit that “replay” button, especially when the emotions involved are negative. Those are the ones that churn through your mind, over and over again, keeping you hostage to the treadmill of dread, grief, shame, anger, and outrage.

How do you react when that “replay” occurs? Do you get angry all over again, cry, or Image result for image people crying watching moviehang your head in shame? How delicious are those emotions, and how they love to control you! Those feelings are the results of chemical reactions that occur in the body and we become addicted to those uncontrollable feelings, reveling in the release and always craving more.

How we love to beat ourselves up…

How does one change this?

Identify the emotion through the memory that sparked the event: was it because your teacher humiliated you? Your mother gave you a spanking? Your father belittled you? You friends made fun of you?

Become conscious of the triggers that precipitate the emotion. Observe the memory objectively if you are able, then consciously think of a happy or loving moment with that person.  Focus on how it made you feel and allow yourself to smile or laugh. This will bring about a change in your reactions and flood you with more positive thoughts and feelings; it will change your chemistry and help you to heal.

The more you put this into practice, the better you will feel, and you will be more able to cope with setbacks and other challenging events in your life. Coping skills in a challenging world are essential for survival and remember, your memories are an illusion, like a movie or a play in which you can choose to be a participant or an onlooker.

Consider too, what you may have learned from that painful experience and how you have changed as a result.

Practices such as meditation and yoga will assist you to change, but YOU have to do the work, you are in charge. Just YOU. Be conscious of your thoughts and change them when you feel that downward spiral kicking in!

Laugh more! It will change your world!

Find your Path

You do not need a teacher.

You do not need a guru.

You do not need to become attached to doing the “right” thing; not everyone is called to save their brethren.

You do not need to sit in a cave, become a recluse, a vegetarian or give up creature comforts, intimacy or joy.

Follow your instincts, the right books will be there for you when you are ready.

Meditate daily.

Express gratitude and joy.

Be the Love and Light that shines the way for others.

Do not proselytize, for everyone is at his own level of understanding and consciousness.

Becoming psychic is a by-product, not the aim of spiritual practice. There is much more beyond that particular gift.

Each day and each breath is a gift.

You are here to experience, to learn and to grow into the human being you wanted to become.

This is the path that few choose, but you will not be walking it alone.

Resignation Syndrome, Mystery Illness

What happens when there is no hope, no succor from the painful memories of a life that continues to haunt the soul? And worse, when refugees are denied residence permits and the specter of returning to this place of dread and fear dominate the thoughts?

Tragically, this response to hopelessness is the shutting down of the mind and body. It is as if the spirit is withdrawing from life. Refugees from the most violent war zones are placing insurmountable pressure on the stable countries of the developed world. What to do? Give them residency status, or force them to return?

“Resignation Syndrome” is the name given to this condition of withdrawal, and it is not only adults but also children who are beyond reach, beyond help, as they turn inward and no longer want to communicate with their loved ones. Such utter despair destroys the body and the soul and when I tap into their auras I see only a misty gray, there is nothing sadder to me than to see this. This is pure angst, borne from the horrors that children and adults alike have witnessed on a daily basis.

We are in an intense period of upheaval as great changes – good and bad – are disrupting the status quo. While much is being uncovered and brought to the rational light of scrutiny and condemnation, oppression and destruction are on the rise on the world stage.

Hold fast dear ones, to your Light. Let it shine. Do not allow yourselves to become drained by events but maintain neutrality and a loving heart. Be kind to your family, your neighbors, and friends. We start from where we are, with those closest to us, for not all are called to combat the current rise of darkness as visible warriors of Light in Governments and charitable foundations. Do your bit, every day, every time you think a negative thought. Be conscious of the powerful destructive possibilities your very thoughts may have and strive to maintain a non-judgemental attitude at all times.

VENUS ASPECTS THE GALACTIC CENTER, MARS CONJUNCTS ATLANTIS & THEREUS CONJUNCTS CERES — Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD

There are several powerful alignments in the skies right now, involving the parts of our lives that deal with relationships, passion, past-life karma, teachers, paths, philosophies, health, though-processes, early childhood, siblings, nurture, children, joy and sexuality. I wasn´t even planning on writing this article, but a wave of emotion and vulnerability hit me. I got […]

Evolution of the Spirit: Animals, Wild and Domestic

I have hesitated to write this, I have known about this for nearly ten years. It was a message that came to me during a meditation. You are all witnesses to what is happening on our planet, but there is a lot of misguided emotion attached to death.

Death is transition, that is all. Energy does not die. Forms change. Things evolve.

As mankind has evolved, we have become more and more conscious of the role that animals play in our lives. Some empathize deeply with our furry friends, and the special bond of love that exists between man (rather, “conscious” man) and wild animals is a heartwarming thing to see.

The decimation of large beasts such as elephants, rhinoceroses, yes, even giraffe is a troubling and painful thing to witness. Not only climate change is threatening their lives, but also the most dangerous predator on the planet: man, a species not that far removed from the great apes.

This is not a rant against the hunters. This is a message from Spirit about evolution. Yes, you all know that evolution is part of the Divine Plan, that we as humans have evolved to become more and more enlightened – more and more conscious. – more intelligent, raising the vibration of every living thing. Evolution has never stopped, it is continuous, allowing for an upshift into other forms, other ways of Being.

Dinosaurs no longer exist because their time had come to ascend, to transition their energy to a different form. Similarly, the large beasts of the planet are ascending and the hunters who prey on them allow them (in most cases) to pass over quickly. There will be a great drought in the African Savannah…there will be many starving to death. These animals have a contract with man to allow their species to die off. Climate change is part of the Plan, to allow certain life forms to die off and for others to evolve. This will not happen overnight; nothing as dramatic as the extinction of the dinosaurs will occur. It will happen however, since there will be less and less land land and less and less food for them. Water, already a scarce resource in Africa, will lead to vast numbers of animals dying off.

I know that those of you reading this do not want to hear this. I am sorry to bring such sad news.

New life forms that are being discovered each day are of a finer, faster vibration: birds, marine animals and insects. These energies will be able to survive the changes as the planet continues to evolve.

Each person who treats his animals (dogs, cats, birds…whatever pets you have) like a beloved companion is helping to transform the intelligence and vibration of the species, so continue to do the good work.

You are much loved, and we thank you for your service, your love and care.

Namaste

Solfeggio Meditation

Image result for image om symbol I had been feeling very stressed about events at home and abroad and although I am usually able to put aside recurring negative thoughts through practicing mindfulness and merely observing what is happening around me,  I decided to tune into some soothing Solfeggio music which is gentle and healing and I could feel myself calming down immediately, so I fetched my art paraphernalia and this was the result.

“For we are all angels, connected by Indivisible Perfection”

 

 

I loved the brief message that came through and when self-doubt and fear enter your mind, reflect on this: we are indeed angels, incarnated into human form, part of the One Great Energy that pervades Everything That Is.

Solfeggio frequencies can enhance meditation as well as facilitate out-of-body experiences. For more information, see https://attunedvibrations.com/solfeggio/

 

Namaste,

Christine

City of Light

Many years ago, during a meditation, I was taken to the most beautiful city of Light. I was accompanied through a portal that opened up to a magnificent vista of a place that exists in the 5th dimension. I crossed a bridge that spanned a small stream, flanked by trees and flowers. Up ahead, not too far away, was a building that resembled ancient Greek temples; pillars of gleaming marble and a polished floor that was unmarked by footprints or by time.

I was taken to meet what I call the Council of Nine. Wise sages sat behind a large, curved table and invited me to speak. I did, they listened and then I waited as they instructed me on aspects of my physical life that required attention.

Self-healing the negative aspects of self; integrating the fragments of the soul that are scattered throughout the multiverses, concentrating on spreading light wherever I go…those are some of the mandates I was to accomplish.

I have visited this wondrous place many times since that first encounter.

Recently I attended a wonderful workshop held by Randall Monk, who teaches the Quest for Mastery program as channeled by Ronna Herman Vezane. The teachings are inspiring and practical, providing advanced information about the ascension process and how to achieve self-mastery.

To my surprise Randall took us on a guided meditation at the end of the workshop which was a visit to the city of Light. It felt to wonderful so like home to me and as on several other occasions, the Master Jesus was present – a shining, powerful force of love. This is not the Jesus that church-goers are familiar with – it is a force of light and love and power that guards the hearts and minds to those who are open to teachings of a higher order. The cult of personality to which people subscribe has nothing in common with the energy of this master.

After the class was completed, Randall channeled his teacher, Melchizedek with a special message for our class. Suddenly, he began choking up, and said, “I cannot do it, I am not worthy…” His voice became soft, gentle. The Christ spoke through him and for the first time I believed in my own experiences; my own visions…I  had not imagined seeing him – I do so often during Reiki sessions, meditations and other random occasions.

The lesson really is: trust your intuition and your experiences. They are part of your journey. Everyone experiences things a little differently because no one, I repeat, NO ONE can have an identical experience to you. You are your own frequency, soul song, level of vibration. You, each one of you, is unique, having experiences filtered through your own perceptions and level of awareness.

Trust in the process as you unfold and grow, like a lotus opening to the sun.

Namaste,

Christine

Quest for Mastery

I am very pleased to announce that I was recently certified as a Quest for Mastery teacher by Randall Monk. He has taken over from Ronna Herman Vezane who no longer travels. Ronna is known as “Sacred Scribe” and channels the teachings and messages of Archangel Michael. The information is accessible and very easy to follow and apply in one’s daily life. These ancient metaphysical  teachings are an updated version of much that has been written before, by other spiritual teachers, such as Alice Bailey, but is in language that is addressing the needs of students who wish to progress along the path of ascension in the 21st Century, and no longer arcane or obscure.

 

IQFM_Cert_Logo_LowRes have been amazed at how effective the techniques for meditation and breathing are, and how easy it is to attain and remain in an Alpha state. If you are interested in hosting me as a teacher, please message me! I would love to share this knowledge with you as you travel on the path to self discovery and mastery!

Love and Blessings, Christine 

Joy!

One of the most important things you can do as a spiritually aware and awake individual, is to shine your joy, lightening up the world around you.

To maintain the equilibrium within can be difficult when we are surrounded by so much negativity, so always strive to see the best in everyone, for to get dragged into their dramas creates ego conflict: that constant source of mind chatter that can obliterate your inner peace and destroy your serenity.

Forgive.

Smile.

Be the friend you want others to be.

Above all, be kind. As the Dalai Lama says, you can’t love everybody, but you can be kind. And kindness begets kindness.    

Laugh, enjoy life, don’t take everything so seriously and see the best in people, even when they try and bring you down through their own sense of misguided justice. You don’t have to play in the mudpit, you can stand at the edge and laugh!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Namaste,

Christine
