Winter, spring, death and rebirth

We just experienced the week that is celebrated as Easter or as it was defined in the ancient tradition prior to being embraced by Christianity is the raising from the ashes and becoming alive again. This is often considered a miracle that happens only to the people with special abilities such as prophets. We often overlook the fact that nature does it every year and we celebrate it when nature decides to rebirth itself and rise from the dead.

Recently, it is either coming to my awareness or more books are being published about the people who are having NDEs (Near Death Experiences). They also speak about their encounter rebirth after the death. Commonality between them is the understanding and knowledge of their life journey, lessons, and choices they made during NDE. After such an experience these people often become the messenger of light, love, compassion and faith since part of their understanding during the NDE is how fear, resentment, etc. impacts one’s own life, prosperity and joy.

In the spiritualty this experience is recognized as the death of ego. And you see lots of New Age teachers declared a war towards eliminating the ego.

I rebirthed myself many times in many ways as well as assisted my clients through their journey of rising through the ashes. Most of us feel this after any kind of loss at certain level, especially after the loss of a loved one. With the knowledge I gained over the years, I can share with you that the rebirthing experience has nothing to do with the elimination of the ego. Ego is a tool that is necessary in the human psyche in order to understand one’s own boundaries as a soul in this life experience. What really dying is one’s own commitment, connection and agreement to experience one’s life through the fear-full perspective (see my Exorcism, the choice between fear and faith Blog). One realizes such a significant transformation by finding faith in its body-mind, releasing one’s agreements with fear, locating the love and kindness inside of one’s self towards everyone, especially one’s self.

You can understand now why this is called resurrection as you ended up drying out and weeding your own system, fertilizing your own soul to grow love, life, kindness and compassion in it since these seeds cannot grow in fear. Your own soil becomes too acidic for it to grow and starts destroying itself with various illnesses (see Deadly Emotions by Don Colbert).

So then, how one can give a rebirth to oneself? It requires a warrior-like awareness to understand one’s own behavioral patterns, where the fear is sliding in and contaminating the responses. It necessitate significant amount of quality time with one’s self so that one can reestablish new neural pathways to create a new, loving, kind, compassionate responses to whatever it is happening in the experience. And it requires qualities of yin, the feminine principle of nourishment, stillness, love; after all you need a time to gestate prior to the birth.

When one takes up such a journey, meditation; daily restorative, hatha, yin types of yoga practices, gentle diet, being in the nature and any kind of creative activity where one connects to one’s higher-self becomes very helpful. We often see the unsuccessful versions of rebirths around the mid-life when one avoids such intimacy with themselves and define the rebirth as new fashion styles, cars, etc. All is well, all choices are OK, and it is just that what you wish to do with your life…

With that, it is my prayer that you find the courage towards meeting your higher-self and directed by the light when rebirthing becomes your experience…

Who let the Gremlins out!!

In my Buttoned up Blog I presented a perspective about our buttons and what to do about it when they are being pushed…This time I would like to present another perspective, which I am hoping that would be helpful for you and your feelings towards the button pusherJ

I am travelling and going through lots of change, hence lots of emotions are floating around. Therefore my buttons are up and about, having a great timeJ May be even my soul is having a great time, but needless to say, my ego on the other hand is not and wanting to see everything as a threat; and direct the fear, discomfort and anger towards my lovely travel companion, that is my husband. Of course my working trough healing my emotions heavily last couple of years, deep emotional studies I have done to understand their purpose, how they move through us or get stuck in the cell tissue, what energy centers they block and so on are helpful to an extent; along with the book I coincidentally took with me to this tripJ But that does not mean that I go through them every so often and boil through their energies…

Yesterday, when we were exploring another town, many of them were rising up and down like the roller coaster. I was getting into my regular habit of thinking that my husband is the source of this emotional turmoil. At that instant this song came to my head, “Who let the dogs out!”…I looked at my husband, the Gremlin whisperer, I realized that he was the one letting the Gremlins out, but they were my Gremlins! He was so skillfully letting them out the closets…At that moment I was under a huge gratitude wave…It came and washed all over me…It was my soul agreement with him to work my gremlins out. He knew them very well and going to keep letting them free until I know what to do with them…

So today, I wanted to share this with you all lovely and loving beings…It is likely that your loved ones, the ones very close to you are going to be and has been your Gremlin Whisperers…Instead of choosing anger next time they free them out and about, direct your gratitude and grace towards them…Yes, the Gremlins are nuisance and they will be disruptive, disturbing and anything else they are good at…Choose to allow the feelings that are desiring to come up to surface by these Gremlins and allow them to float instead of directing your focus on the Gremlin Whisperer…Take your focus from your Gremlin Whisperers as that would be your escape mechanism from freedom of the self. Gremlins often sit in our Life source, Chi, Shakti whatever you wish to call, and block them coming in and coming out. Allow your Gremlin Whisperer’s to help you free the energy blockages; choose love towards them not rejection…Chose to ride the waves. The emotions are intelligent enough to cease as soon as they are acknowledged and can express themselves. All they trying to do are to get your attention to your blocked areas so that you become light with no restriction…

Here is my prayer for you today: May you find strength to generate love for your Gremlin Whisperers. May you choose to enable and recognize your emotions no matter what they are trying to bring your attention to. May you dance in your own, beautiful light, now and all ways…
