Perspective and some Good news ~ Erika Ginnis


Some Good news!!

You know I generally use this blog to express my ideas and maybe some techniques, and I don’t use it as much just to share. However I was messing around on my iPhone tonight and I was totally touched by two different things, one an article and one a video. So of course I had to create a post.  🙂

I know these are all around Facebook and such, and so you may have seen them and that’s all good. But for me they both (for different reasons) really opened my heart and brought tears to my eyes; plus I am all GO Australia…since they are both from Australia.

Here are two examples of teachers to us all, that I want to share; they show up in this way one on purpose, one not, but both due to sheer force of Love.

This first one is a link to an article that talks about a mother who by love and contact and energy (and in my opinion talking to the actual being who is her son) brought him into this life alive; even after the doctors told her he was born dead. This is an incredible thing on so many levels. And it points to me the idea of miracles being “awesome normalities”;  as one of my former teachers would say. It also points out the importance of touch and our organic connection with each other and how profound that truly is…

Here’s the link, complete with pics then and now…

Miracle mum brings premature baby son back to life with two hours of loving cuddles after doctors pronounce him dead


We are living in the age of miracles and how often do we miss them because we are pointed in the opposite direction. I am sharing this because here is someone who, in the face of the worse information a mother would ever want to hear, still moves forward. Rather than crumbling into despair as would be her right; she turns her attention EVEN IN THE FACE OF DEATH, to what she does want. Talks to her son as if he is alive; tells him his name; tells him about his sister…holds him and loves him.

This is pure grace and total Source shinning love. And see what happens!! How much can we use this energy; this complete disregard of the frightening “facts” before us; not fighting them, but simply loving anyway! How can we bring this same principle into our own lives even when the circumstances are not so dire?

This second one is a video, and actually I guess it is a promotional video for a DVD or CD from this person; and while I am not sharing this to promote him specifically, I thought that the message that he shared during this 2 minute or so video was priceless.

I sat there and just cried while watching it…not because I was sad; but because I was so inspired and impressed and happy to see this teacher and what he was teaching his students. The light that he shines is palatable.

Source/God/The Universe shows up in so many ways; in, as, and through all of us; and to see someone who I would normally have preconceived notions about based on his physicality, shine so brightly as himself, as God; this is a gift. This man in this video is so thoroughly in his spiritual center that it shouts out with every fiber of his being.

These are examples (in my opinion) of Conscious Metamorphosis. And I share them here so we can remember that we can each do this; we don’t have to wait for a crisis, or a lifetime with specific things to overcome in order to do it.

Bless bless bless those who have come to us through these kinds of things; and let’s use their example as ways to keep perspective and grace though all of the things life brings to us and around us.

Hope you enjoy them, I thought they were very cool!

Blessings and Aloha ~Erika

“Don’t stop believing; and Bless everything no exceptions” Glee and my spiritual practice. ~ Erika Ginnis

“Don’t stop believing; and Bless everything no exceptions”

I am going to touch on three things in this post; the first one has to do with the TV show Glee. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it (and you don’t need to be for purposes this post, although it will be even more enjoyable for those that are 🙂 ) Glee is a new, very popular, show that revolves around the experiences of a High School Glee club; but it’s really about much much more.

Ok so yes here I am talking about a TV series, and one might say how can this really be spiritual. But I have to say that there are things in this show that touch my heart so deeply; one of which is a song that has become a kind of theme through the show thus far, the chorus of which goes …”Don’t stop believing, hold on to that feeling”. Sound familiar? If not feel free to scroll down to watch the YouTube video I included, and then come back up and start reading again here…

This song shows up in such poignant ways all through the season of Glee, and it speaks to many of us across a wide range of experiences. I invite you to think about what this phrase is saying.


Don’t stop believing.

Believe even in the midst of doubt; believe even though there is no visible evidence. This is the call of spirit, of our deep inner selves. It is the guiding light that shines on the path that we are walking, that shows us the turns to take.

Hold on to that feeling; yes that is the key because from that feeling springs the emotion and from that emotion springs the vibration and from that vibration springs the demonstration of your belief.


I love Glee, I love that we have these amazing individuals falling and returning to center, showing us our own path. Reminding us of times gone by or times to come; but also of what is right in front of us right now.

Every moment is an opportunity to believe, and it’s put to the test during the times when we feel lost or alone on our journey (how perfect that the song is originally by Journey, such a metaphor!). We lose who we are (we think); we think our dreams are lost too, but this is never true! Our dreams are right there waiting for us to turn back toward them and embrace them.

The next related point is something I have been thinking and writing about lately; as is shown in the season finale of Glee, the concept that you do not have to be the best to be really good, or worthwhile.

During the season Finale they (and I am assuming here that people have seen the show and I am not spoiling it for anyone) do not win the contest they are in, there are many reasons for that but they don’t in fact win. This is surprising especially for a TV show where these kids are the underdogs, I personally wanted them to win, expected them to win! However they don’t and they “didn’t even place” (as one character says) And yet, and yet… they are amazing and they are the epitome of heart and love (IMHO) and growth and evolution of self.

What I wrote previously on this idea of not having to be the BEST…

One thing that I have been struck with on this topic that I have been meditating on since it really hit home; was the idea that you do not have to be the BEST at something (ie perfect) to be good at it; or for it to be worthwhile. I started to wonder how many people are not doing/sharing their gifts and light and ideas because they judge it as “not-as-good-as” and so don’t do it at all?

If I take that to the extreme it means there can only be one who is the “good one” at anything; and even if you are the ONE that is the BEST, there is so much energy going into keeping that place because that itself is so transitory! Plus it’s totally subjective! I am not saying to stop striving to be the best you can be at something, but there is a difference between having that as something you are inspired to do; and letting it stop you from doing all kinds of different things or new things.

This becomes more important as we move into new avenues of expression that may be entirely new for everyone since we are all evolving in so many ways.

All is one, even though we are all a variety of expressions of that One. Each time you let yourself move forward become larger greater, move into new territory, it’s like one of the flowers on the HUGE tree of US opens and blooms; each time a flower bursts open it stimulates more flowers to bloom.

This whole show is about being your self no matter what someone else’s opinion is, it is about following that dream, believing in yourself. I think that is one of the reasons that the show is so powerful; there is such a strong message in it.

This same song in the finale; which echoes both the first episode, and another later episode; epitomizes the longing for a child hood dream (in this case music) and an individual deciding to follow it rather than desert it, which makes it all the more heart opening.

How do we then keep these dreams alive in us? There are many many ways, but one that I am going to mention is something that many people have suggested over the years; and that I had a very personal experience with it recently…

Last weekend I had to get up really early for a commitment on Saturday. I was having a hard time sleeping the night before; I couldn’t fall asleep in my bed so I was out on the couch. I was having one of those nights where I was increasingly aware of what time it was in relation to what time I had to get up. I had been sort of dozing but was awake again and feeling kind of stiff.  It was about 3 in the morning. I got up kind of sore from the position I had been in and was going to try the bed again. I put my arms up and stretched and was right in the middle of this huge sigh.

I was planning on it ending in a frustrated exclamation, I even kind of resigned to how I would feel after that…but oddly enough that wasn’t what happened.

It’s like I had been up in the air, ready to come down in a specific pre-chosen spot and something just shifted positions in me; and rather than landing where I thought I would, I came down somwhere entirely different and utterly unplanned.  What changed? Well in mid-sigh surprisingly I heard something within myself tell me this thought, rather than the one I had planned…

“bless everything; no exceptions”

And all of a sudden that “pre-groan” sigh, turned into a sigh of relief. It was like all at once I was a different person than I had been two seconds before. I smiled instead of groaning as I had been literally planning to do moments before, and I went to bed and slept well. It had truly been a moment of unexpected grace.

I want to note this because it was a good and powerful place to be in and return to. Since that time, all week (of course) I have been getting that message every time I turn around; in books; in spiritual practice on my iPhone; in emails 🙂 and so I know it is absolutely important to me on my path right now. This all on its own was lovely and inspiring but there is more to the story.

That Saturday I went through my day and came home and had time to read a good book and relax. I was in a pretty uplifted place and so that night I slept well with no need to watch the clock. I was still integrating this idea of “bless everything no exceptions”; which was not the most natural of spiritual practices I have encountered, given some of my own mental habits.

However what happened on Sunday was like a time release experience.

Sunday morning I woke up well rested (up early again for the second day of my budgeting commitment) and had this feeling of blessing running entirely through me. I got up and thought about various things and when I found myself slipping (by habit) into complaining in my mind or attitude; the phrase would resurface, and I would start just blessing whatever it was, no matter what I thought of it. This changed my entire morning.

Given the early start of my day I found myself driving into Hilo before many people were up (since it was a Sunday). I spent the whole drive in, blessing everything; it was like I had a long wide cloak/wave coming out from my shoulders and fanning out behind me. I was at the leading edge of the cloak/wave and I imagined just blessing everyone as they were sleeping. I was loving all these people who hadn’t started their day yet; who were still in bed or just getting up. I imagined their mornings and breakfasts and afternoon get-togethers and I blessed and blessed and blessed. It was effortless and felt so very good. I kept that feeling all through the day; every time I would feel that I was falling into worry or anything else I would move right back into blessing. It changed my entire experience.

I didn’t try to change the things I saw even if they weren’t the way I wanted them to be,  I just “blessed everything, no exceptions”; if I saw a place in my life with a hole instead of the something I wanted in it, I blessed it.  If I noticed anything at all, any person place or thing no matter what they were doing, I blessed them, I covered them with this cloak of blessing. It was so cool.

I share this story because I think we can use this for our own dreams and visions; every time we might get tempted to judge ourselves harshly (which can be so so so easy to do, at least for me sometimes) we can instead choose to “Bless everything; no exceptions”. This will entirely change our energy and therefore our experience.

We can take the example from the kids in Glee… Don’t stop believing hold on to that feeling! and Bless everything no exceptions, and see what kind of beauty we can create.

Blessings and Aloha,

Erika Ginnis

(ps this video is from mid season, not the finale, but it was a nice version of the song so I am including it here. There are as you might guess, a bagillion Youtube videos of this song in its various forms from Glee… so take your pick and enjoy!)

Telekinesis, Awakening, and Updating your energy ~ Erika Ginnis

How’s your telekinesis these days?

(Disclaimer.. this is one of my very “wooo wooo” intensive posts…just saying)

Telekinesis (TK) energy is that energy you use to move objects without touching them physically. It is also the energy you use to blow out light bulbs unintentionally and make street lights go out when you pass by them :).

Traditionally this energy would flow though the same channels as your healing energy would flow. I will go into more detail about those channels later on in the post; but for now just know that it would normally flow down your arms and out your hands and normally TK would be set at a much lower level than the healing energy would be.

Grounding is especially important to use with this energy; which is why you are much more likely to blow out a light bulb turning the light switch on right after you get up in the morning (or whatever part of the day/evening that might be) when your energy is still zinging along and you haven’t found your body enough to really ground it yet (i.e. still half asleep).

There is some interesting things coming up about TK and in looking at the energy again I started to think back and realize that there have been some changes recently around all of this; especially during sleep/dream time.


I have been aware of seeing some symbols related to this; they were white circles with a black line around the outside, and inside on the white background there were all kind of black lines looking like wire bent at right angles and squished together, it reminded me of something like a cross section of some kind of tubing. There is also a kind of overlay of purple energy on all of this.

The reason I mention this here, is that these symbols seem to be relating to some past lives many folks have from working with TK energy in Atlantis. (There is a lot of past life information over the years about the “technology” of using sound vibration for doing all kinds of things, like moving objects and shifting energy.)

The symbols are often found in the hands and the 6th and 3rd chakras. Now we have symbols of all kinds of things since it is one of the ways we store and communicate energy as spirit, but the interesting thing that came up with all of this is that normally we will update our symbols and use then as we need them, but these symbols were kind of staying in “past time”.

What I saw is that we get tempted to keep these (and other symbols) in their “past” form because of the validation it brings us; it shows us that we have had past experiences on this planet, and that we really have known how to move energy with energy. What happens though is that the symbols themselves can get in the way of what we are trying to do (like access that energy in a form that works in present time).

TK is an interesting thing; it’s so real and “see-able”. Telekinesis can seem like the best thing that can offer some kind of “hard” evidence. So you ask for it, want to keep it in order to find way to “prove” to yourself that this stuff (all the woo woo spiritual stuff) is real; which is understandable.

The deal is you still really have to work on the beliefs first, not because you have to have them for the evidence to appear (although it certainly helps) but because if you don’t clear or change the beliefs that say this stuff isn’t real, then as soon as you have it, regardless of what it is…walking on fire, bending a spoon, fixing something without touching it, you will have the validation for only about 5 minutes before you automatically start rationalizing it away, and it ceases to be proof and you start the whole process all over again. We are so funny!

If we allow these symbols (which are just packets of information we have stored) to unpack themselves and come into present time (meaning the version that will work for our energy today), we can use this wisdom in ways that will work, not only millennia ago, but in our lives here and now.

I mentioned “downloads” in an earlier post, mostly in relation to getting information when we connect to people or places. I am also seeing that happen when people are out of their bodies sleeping. This means we can actually wake up in a higher vibration than when we went to bed. Whee haw!!

Some information that I think may be helpful in regards to this ~
I noticed with downloads that there is a kind of default setting for the speed at which the energy comes into the body through the 7th chakra. I never paid much attention to this before! I think the default used to work a lot better than it has been lately with all the increased activity (meaning it may be out of present time). Without updating it, some days the default speed can be too much all at once and hard to keep up with; and when you aren’t caught up your energy can feel kind of haywire.

If you don’t address this your body can start to back up on energy and get kind of short-ed out (which can show up as feeling pain especially in the joints, or having excess energy flowing out into the world of electronics etc.). This is also increased by all the astrology with Uranus and Saturn being at odds with one another (Uranus having a lot too do with electrical energy and lighting and erratic sudden changes) and the oh-so-soon Mercury Retrograde.

I got this image of a pinball machine; meaning everyone is going through what they are all going through in their awakening process (doesn’t mean a bad thing just a movement thing) and when they are all together then people are bouncing off one another like balls in a pinball machine and activating “lighting up” all these things in each other just by their proximity. So this makes grounding and letting things be smooth, even more important.

The good news is you can bring this into present time; and you can also manually/intentionally set the download speed to a variable rate. It’s similar to how you would work with your computer actually; even easier in fact.

To adjust this simply make an agreement with yourself (best done during meditation of some kind) that you will download information at a rate that is comfortable for you; whether you are in or out of your body (in other words, sleeping or awake).

In addition to setting that intention to have a comfortable download rate for new updated information; I would also suggest making a point to update your energy system each time you get up in the morning. Spend a couple minutes to clear out your energy body especially the joints and the places where your astral body connects. Since things are moving pretty quickly these days, these shifts are happening way more often than they used to, which means that if you are normally used to updating your grounding, bringing things into present time every few months, that is just not going to keep you up to speed with your changes these days.


Telekinesis and Healing channels

I was taught years ago that TK and healing energy ran through the same channels in the energy system; and that at some point you would have to make a choice about which one you wanted to focus on because they were kind of mutually exclusive.

I am not talking about the little TK stuff but for someone like Yuri Geller (the person that my teacher used as an example) would have had to make a decision somewhere along the line that he was going to use those channels more specifically for TK than healing. I am not saying that this is true or not, just that it was what I was taught.

Now what was interesting is that I was getting some new information about all of this during reading/meditation; what I got was…that as things are evolving and the energy is getting quicker, that the TK energy is not really running through channels in the same way it used to (such as in Atlantis); it is shifting and evolving and running through channels of thought/consciousness which aren’t in any specific place in the energy system.


I am reminded of a scene in The Matrix

“Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.”
“What truth?”
“There is no spoon.”
“There is no spoon?”
“Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself”


That is such a powerful statement. If all is One, then all reality is also One thing, and so yes it is only ourselves that bend! It all happens in consciousness.

So in relation to this energy moving via thought, it means many things, but one of them is that it didn’t look to me like you had to make that same choice you used to have to make. Part of this is because with the increase of vibration in general, we have changed our relationship to TK; sound vs thought as the medium through which it is moving; and as such we don’t access it in the same way as we used to at all.

This frees up our healing channels to be used for just that, and not have to sacrifice our TK ability (if we choose to use it) in order to do healing.

One last thing that came up in regards to updating information. If you work with guides (an entirely different subject I realize but stay with me on this) remember that guides evolve just like we do; since we are in fact, all spirit. So if there are guides that you are working with it is also a good thing to update your relationship with them (bring it in present time) now and again to allow for that evolution process to have space for both of you. Otherwise you are interacting with an older version of the guide and they are interacting with an older version of you. Kind of like going back to visit relatives and they still see you as a young child or a teenager and we all know how much fun that is!!

Ok that’s all for now…see you on the next wave.

Aloha and Blessings,
Erika

Awesome talk by Elizabeth Gilbert on the creative process

I love this woman. I also really adore what she is talking about, on a lot of levels. This video is on creativity and creative process and re-framing how we look at it.

I totally relate to so much of it. I especially liked her story about that poet feeling a poem coming to her across the field, and racing to get paper to write it down.

Many things I have written come to me all in one piece; and my poems (which I will at some point compile into a book) have more often than not, started with a line in my mind which lets me know that they are ready to come through me.

I had to make an agreement years ago with my “muse” that what was wanting to come through would wait until I had the time to actually put it into print. I let it exist as a symbol above my head (7th Chakra area) I can see it/feel it there; and when I am ready and have the focused time I allow it to download so-to-speak.

This is one of the first times I have heard anyone else talk about some of these things, which is so very cool.

I also like the idea of applauding who we are as creative individuals (all of us) for showing up and doing the work regardless of whether it is our “crowning achievement” or not. yes yes yes.

When you have 20 minutes I highly recommend listening to this. It is very uplifting.
Blessings to you
Aloha ~Erika

Cardinal Grand Cross weekend in review

So this has been a really intense weekend energetically has it not? How has it been for you?

I know that I have heard of people feeling like they are barely staying afloat; feeling like they are drowning. I have heard of people spending a lot of time in meditation. I have heard of insights being gained and realities shifting. I am guessing there are those who are blessedly just bopping along not even noticing that the house is up in the middle of a cyclone, and a lady just passed by the window and it seems as if any time now we will find ourselves well passed the boundaries of Kansas, firmly planted in OZ (and I don’t know about you but I am not even going to go look under the house for those ruby slippers). 🙂

This was according to some the opening of the Lion’s gate. I read that the Lion’s gate is a yearly cycle, although this specific one has to do with ascension and moving into the higher levels of light. I may post more on that later. The other big thing though was the Cardinal Grand cross with everybody and his brother in the mix (planet wise) really stirring up the pot. I think these are parts of the same thing of course, with each accelerating the other.

Here is an except from something that was emailed to me by a friend. The Astrologer is named Susan Miller and can be found at the Astrology Zone. These are excepts from a longer article; but it was interesting and important information on the astrology, so I though I would share some of this here as well.


“Truths will be illuminated, secrets will be exposed, and any injustices will be corrected. Under this type of configuration, we cannot deny, ignore, or hide from certain realities, but that’s good, for only then can we be energized to make things better. The cardinal cross – like eclipses – often pushes us to either end of the spectrum. That means you may find events to be either very difficult or very thrilling. Either way you will know where you stand and you will be able to plan with a greater sense of certainty.”

“This month’s cardinal cross will include Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and the transiting moon in Cancer. That’s eight heavenly bodies! The only ones not involved will be the Sun, Neptune, and Mercury. That is a large degree of participation!

“Technically, in order to have a true cardinal cross, you need to have four squares and two oppositions. You would see a perfect square box with an X in the middle. That’s a grand cross. When the group of planets involved are all cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn) you have a grand cardinal cross.
This month’s grand cardinal cross is extraordinary because it will have not four squares but ten, and not two oppositions but seven. Wow, as you see, this is a very intense cardinal cross. Looking ahead 500 years, I could not find another cardinal cross involving so many planets.

“Another remarkable feature of this cardinal cross is that each planet will be within five degrees of each another, and many will be in even tighter configuration, within a degree or so! Cardinal signs are VERY energetic and when they are found in very early degrees of zero to 1.5 degrees, like many of these planets will be, they epitomize the very life force. This is very powerful!
Furthermore – another point that astounded me – is that Mars will be at a very sensitive degree on August 6 and 7, unlocking the message of the June 26 lunar eclipse, or bringing more news to a situation that arose at that time.

“Squares are known to present obstacles, but they also help you move forward and even turn a corner. They are a necessary part of life, for they uproot us from our complacency and shake us into awareness. You may experience a big breakthrough or the final ending of a long and debilitating circumstance.

“Two particularly important planets to watch will be Saturn and Uranus, still standing approximately 180 degrees apart. Even though they had their last opposition on July 21, they are still very close. Saturn rules all that is traditional and conservative, and Uranus represents all that is new and revolutionary. As you see, these two planets are very different.

“These two began confronting each other on November 4, 2008. Since then, they have been engaging in combat, separating and retreating, engaging and now finally separating. They have not have had direct confrontation since 1965-1967, a time when society moved out of the roles and mood of the 1950’s into a much more modern time. In the USA the changes focused on the changing role of women and African Americans in our society. Often when we are participating in big change we are too busy to notice how massive things are shifting, but in hindsight it becomes clear.

“Certainly Saturn and Uranus have been keeping up the pressure to force us to decide what is valuable and to be preserved, and what is new and revolutionary and should be embraced to replace all that is outworn. As creatures of habit we tend to cling to what we know rather than try something new.”

“So in the coming week, if anything is weak and ready to break, it will. It will be obvious that the center will not hold – something has to change. Actually, that’s the good news, for extreme planetary energies like the one we are about to experience will soon display any defective parts in a relationship, project, certain investment deal, or other endeavor or part of life. Those outworn or faulty elements will either spin off quickly and be discarded, or demand fixing or advice very soon. If you were deprived of reward on any level, it may come to you now.

“Cardinal energy is not patient, so when the news its, it will demand you attend to it quickly with a sense of urgency. We all will have no choice but to act under such strong gale force winds, but let’s not forget that forceful, difficult aspects illuminate and clarify situations like none other. The universe will now take a strong hand in things to show us what we could not see for ourselves. Yet, as I have been saying, if you are with the wrong boss, the wrong sweetheart, the wrong investor, or in the wrong living situation (you name it – there are many possibilities), the cardinal cross may suddenly end that situation and help you get into a new one quickly. “


I know for myself I had bouts of internal tension at varying intervals. I have also had big shafts of light shining right through me into my world. I chose the path of coming home Friday night and doing some really chewy (the technical term :)) meditation and Theta healing on myself. I figure if this much stuff is up I might as well put it to good use and start some big ‘ol clearing. I meditate daily anyway as part of a spiritual practice that has been going on for 30 years now, but there are times when the call, or opportunity, of meditation feels like it has a capitol “M”. This was one of those weekends.

I mostly focused on looking at what my beliefs really are, and how are they effecting me today. Plus starting up an even more in depth conversation with the Universe about whether or not I am truly supported and please give me some signs of land thank-you-very-much. I got some of those signs, to my joy and relief; and so I am doing daily work to be right here right now and not jump into the potential future of what might or might not be (lions and tigers and bears oh my!).

I had a good “out-loud” conversation with God tonight, and it was strangely comforting. I normally do this quietly, but tonight out-loud seemed to be the way to go. I realized that there are levels of honesty and if I found it interesting that there can still be this desire to “look good” to God even where only my cats and I are physically present. I love that I can laugh at myself, it’s a way I grow. I can be truthful in the middle of being really silly, which is how it felt tonight saying all the things out-loud that had been running around in my brain, even if I “know” I am not supposed to be thinking/saying/pondering them. I am a teacher and I know better right? Well Thank the powers that be we all change and grow all the time.

I have decided once again though, that if we do indeed create our reality based on our beliefs, then that means that we really do get to do that very thing. Therefore in my reality I get to have a God(dess) that hears me and loves me and totally understands me and answers me no matter how I am feeling when I start the conversation.

This may seem like an odd thing to say but I find our ability to create new rules when the old ones go out the window, is pretty impressive. Such as the rule that I find popping up sometimes which says God only hears you and answers when your consciousness is up high enough and you are positive enough. Which is oddly reminiscent of replacing the idea of being “sinful” with being “negative”, but having it essential fill the same role. LOL. OK in some ways they are similar in that sin=missing the mark (it is a term that originally came from archery having to do with missing the mark, or coming up short) and being “negative” is simply another way to miss the mark of where we want to be; so that I suppose that is reasonable.

However I am going to keep the idea of the God/Universe who loves us and listens and responds even in our “broken times”; otherwise I am keeping myself from my source at the very times I most need to remember that connection. How often do we cut ourselves off at the times we need it most, waiting to be in a better place before we ask? It’s like cleaning the house before the house cleaner comes over, what’s the point? If God/the Universe is All and is everywhere present, then wouldn’t that mean it is right where we each are all the time; even in the times when we are twirling around in the winds of change?

I was reminded tonight (during my conversation) that things can only happen in the now they are happening in. Which means that I can ask all day for something to happen in the future (and I do believe it does get created energetically in the moment we put our attention on it) but it will take coming into that place in time that I now see as future for that darn thing to actually manifest! Which is to say that it is counterproductive to ask for something to happen next Monday and worry all week because it hasn’t happened yet; when indeed it’s something that can only actually happen on Monday!! Funny funny humans!

So once again I am brought to present time and to appreciating what I have in-this-moment, and when I hear that voice that says but… but… I go back to appreciating what I have in-this-moment (rinse and repeat); because often what I have in this moment is quite good; it’s the fear that something will be lost, or not gained l-a-t-e-r that often throws us all off kilter. The paradox is, the times I have been right in the middle of some kind of experience that I might want to label “yuck” (so technical I know) I am totally OK in the midst of it…and I have made it through.

I am finding so much juice in all of this, I have been listening more intently, really tuning into that guidance, not taking things for granted. This is a very good thing.

So how has your weekend been? Any insights gained?

(oh and by the way Mercury is going retrograde in a couple weeks…but I am thinking walk in the park after all this…waddya say?) 🙂

Aloha and Blessings,
Erika
