Healing Charlottesville

    "The healing of our inner and outer relationships, and with it our full manifestation potential to unfold can only happen if both our Masculine and Feminine Spirit are healed within."
  ~ Jona Brandis

     "The blessing of letting go is creating and holding sacred space for healing." 
  ~ Debra L Reble, PhD, Soul-Hearted Partnership

     My husband and I met and fell in love in Charlottesville, Virginia nearly 40 years ago. We were two souls magnetically drawn to each other by our matching wounds.  For me, it was a deep wound of my feminine, the result of childhood sexual abuse. For him, it was a deep wound of his masculine from childhood medical trauma. We both have PTSD. And for all our adult lives we have taken turns holding the space for each other to heal.

     Today I realized that we are not just healing our own divine feminine and divine masculine. What we have carried is far beyond our own pain. What we are holding space for is not just for ourselves, but for the collective wounds of the feminine and masculine.

     How ironic that the beautiful city where we found love was the site of shocking violence and hate: Where a hate-filled man took the life of a peace-filled woman.

     I don't profess to know what it is like to be a man (or a woman) so angry and filled with hate as to join a hate group.  I don't profess to know what is it like to be a person of color, a Jew, a Muslim, a member of the LGBTQ community, or any other minority in the United States who fear for their lives. And because I do not know these things I have been silent and reluctant to have a voice on what is happening in my country, even when clients ask for my opinion.

    This is what I DO know. I know what it is like to be human and to be deeply wounded. And I know what it is like to heal from those wounds.  And so that is what I can offer to heal our inner Charlottesville.

    This is what heals: LOVE
  • Love the part of you that feels outraged, horrified, terrified and in grief
  • Love the part of you that feels hopeless and has lost faith
  • Love the part of you that is wounded
  • Love your feminine and love your masculine
  • Love the part of you that wants to hide
  • Love the part of you that feels hatred toward those who spread hate
    Shine your light. Open your heart. Spread your love. Be a source of peace in this world.

The Power of Intention

   "Every intention sets energy into motion, whether you are conscious of it or not." ~ Gary Zukav,  The Seat of the Soul 

  On my birthday 4 months ago, I wrote about a ritual planting of thousands of marigold seeds harvested from seed pods I had gathered the previous fall. I planted them with a lot of intention, as they represented the seeds of my birthday wishes. Four months later, I have noticed something very interesting...

    In the area where I planted the seeds, the plants have grown full and mature, and are already beginning to produce seeds.



   But the excess plants that I transplanted to other areas of the yard have barely grown in 4 months:


     As I sat in my garden today, my bare feet on the ground in my daily Earthing practice, I puzzled over this difference. The plants all have similar soil conditions. And many have similar sunlight conditions.  Some of the stunted transplants are only a few feet away from the area where I planted the seeds and the marigolds are thriving! What could account for the difference?

The Power of Intention

      When I planted those Marigold seeds 4 months ago, I was in a state of setting intention for my new year. I was chanting my birthday wishes and affirmations. Doing so made my body feel buzzy with energy.  My hands were warm with the flow of energy as I manually mixed the seeds into potting soil, and when I scooped up handfuls of the soil and seed mixture and scattered them throughout the planting area.  My bare feet tingled as I stood on the ground during this process.

     As I did this ritual planting, I was filled with gratitude...  Gratitude for all the blessings in my life and all the blessings I knew would be coming.

     Your birthday is your personal new year's day, and on my birthday I was filled with excitement for my new year. As I scattered the seeds, I visualized my heart's desires and felt the feeling of them coming true, as if it were already so.

     Perhaps the flowers are not only being fed nutrients from the soil and energy from the sun, but also energy that I infused in the ground where I planted the seeds.  Can the expanded state of energy that the power of intention creates really affect the rate of growth of a plant?

     Many years ago I worked with a shaman-priestess.  She worked out of an office in her home, which was located in a row of townhouses.  In front of the townhouses were a row of trees. The tree directly in front of her house was twice the size of any of the other trees, even though they had all been planted at the same time. This was a woman who lived her life with daily intention and guided others to do the same. Each time I came to her home for a session, I noticed the size difference in the trees. The tree seemed to thrive in the positive energy field around that home!

      If the energy of intention can affect the rate of growth of plants that dramatically, imagine what it can do for your life! Energy follows intention, and the state of your energy determines the state of your health, relationships and career. When you set intentions for your highest good, your higher self guides your life. Click HERE for more about how to set intentions.

    Next year I plan on using intention with all my plantings in all areas of my yard. It will be interesting to see how that affects the rate of growth!

Why You Shouldn't Even Try to Fit In

     "It's not only OK to be different, it's awesome and admirable and courageous and heroic. It's your differentness that is your destiny and your happiness, and your differentness is what makes the world more interesting." ~ Bill KleinLife is Short 

     I'm writing this to tell you that... you don't have to fit in.  In fact, you shouldn't even try to fit in.  Because when you try to fit in, you cease to be YOU. You become some version of yourself. You become out-of-sync with your spirit. You create disharmony in your energy systems. And that disharmony affects your health. Because the state of your energy is a direct determinant of your health and happiness.

     You do NOT have to...
  • ... be someone you aren't so people will like you or accept you.  
  • ... pretend to like what other people like.  
  • ... go along with the status quo. 
  • ... avoid rocking the boat.   
  • ...desensitize yourself to live in an insensitive world.
  • ...turn off your intuitive gifts to adapt to a harsh environment.
  • ...grind down your square peg to fit in a round hole!  
  • ... dim your colorful, magnificent self.  
  • ... make yourself small and invisible to avoid being criticized.
Health Consequences

       The bottom line is this - trying to fit in can have a negative effect on your health, and over time this effect can be significant.  I've worked with people who were literally dying because they were living in complete opposition to who they really are. Once they stopped trying to fit in, their health was restored.

     If it is in your highest good, DO the following:
  • Rock the boat!
  • Determine your own value!
  • Be the square peg!
  • Be "big" if that is your true self!
  • Allow yourself to be visible and seen! 
  • Be your vibrant, unique, authentic self!
