love v (from Ishtar)

I want you to imagine it is night time, there’s not a cloud in sight apart from a glittering array that is reflected from the night sky.

Walk though a park; hear the little birds nestling in for the evening. Tap into all the little animals as they too take up their beds for the night’s rest. Become aware of the sounds of the awakening ones, the crickets voicing their opinion together with the little frogs, walking through this beautiful park under the night skies ahead of you in the distance is a massive Malachite slab in the shape of a heart. It is huge, cut out of the finest quality of malachite. (Malachite carries the new 8th Dimensional Heart Chakra Vibration)

Now walk towards this slab that shines in the night sky entering where the upper parts of the two lobes meet. Now stand on the slab where the two upper curves of the heart meet, look up and embrace the glittering diamonds of the night sky above you. Embrace the beauty, wonderment and love of this Creation and the array of diamonds it showers within your field of vision as far as the eye can see. Feel the energy of Indigo all around you.

Now become aware that directly ahead of you where the bottom part of the two hearts meets forming a sharp point, there is someone standing.

Now I know this may prove to be difficult for some but try not to project a familiar image into that person, try not to visualize that being facing you across your outstretched heart as someone specific, try not to project that energy as someone you would like to create for yourself. Leave it open and up to the Universe to decide whom this is as I ask you now to make your way very slowly one step at a time towards that being and he/she is making their way in the same manner towards you, take your time please.

As you come to stand facing each other now look only into their eyes, see the love within their eyes reflecting the love within yours. Don’t see anything else, do not try and make out their looks or build, only focus on their penetrating eyes, returning your glance of love.

Now, step closer towards each other until you come to so close facing each other that you can feel the warm of their breath.

Now bending your elbows, place the palms of your hands together facing. So his/her right palm will touch your left and visa versa. So you are facing each other with your palm chakras connecting.

Now lean forward bringing your noses to touch each other. Now lean even further into their energy field with your foreheads touching and as you do so bend your heads down slightly allowing your foreheads to touch at the flat surface of the skin and what happens the moment you do this, your hands becomes much closer, and an amazing embrace of energy becomes alive between you and your soul mate. Your fingers intertwine in a warm embrace as the prints of your divine essence that is marked within the skin of your fingers and palms connect activating true feelings of touch for you both. So you have your finger prints interlocking with your signatures connecting, your 3rd eyes are touching, the bridge of your noses touching as you tilted your heads connecting the 3rd eye areas, I invite you for a moment to feel this energy, feel the exchange of compassion and unconditional love when you share insight and wisdom with another in love.

Feel the essence of true love when you can actually experience the touch of your sacred signatures.

Now, keep your hands interlocked, look up lifting your chins and again look each other in the eye.

Now your partner gently releases their hands from yours and places their hands around your waist as they draw you much closer pulling you deeper into their embrace and as they do so, you now take your hands and embrace their shoulders, run your hands across their chest and touch the flexibility of their shoulder joints and the warmth of their chest with meaning. If your partner is a male then feel the power in his muscles, feel the power in his shoulders. If your partner is a female then feel the power that pulsates through the softness and even tone of her skin. Smell the gentleness of the essence of the fragrance that is her.

Now embrace each other in a much tighter and warm embrace.

Now with your partner still facing you I want you to very slowly and gently run your hands down their chest. Pause, then slowly down across their abdomen, slowly bending down run both your hands along the front of their thighs and further down cupping their carves as you bend down touching their feet and toes. Take your fingers and run them in between each toe as you gently admire their beautiful form.

Now whilst bending down on your haunches turn around with your back facing your partner and slowly straighten your legs standing up and as you do so rub your back and buttocks up against their legs their knees, their thighs, then straighten up so your lower back is tucked in close against their abdomen. Feel your upper back resting against your partner’s chest as they draw you close.

Your partner now moves their arms around you, pulls you even closer as they embrace you from behind holding you around the abdomen. Feel your back against their chest. If your partner is a man then feel the power within their pectorals, if your partner is a female feel the softness of her breasts touching you.

Now stretch your arms straight up reaching for the skies stretching them high above your head. With your arms stretched out your partner now very slowly move their hands from your abdomen up across your chest. If you are a male feel her touching your pectorals, if you are a female appreciate his warm embrace as your partner gently moves his hands across your breasts. Your partner’s hands now come to rest at your exposed armpits. In other words he energetically transfers his signature into your auxiliary nodes. The underarm nodes of the lymphatic system dear friends are very potent nodes of clearing. This area takes tremendous strain especially with the constant clearing that occurs within the heart and throat chakras. These nodes are under severe pressure caused by denial and the inability to forgive and the reaction to this action often terminates in malignant conditions such as your cancers.

Now your partner slowly but very surely begins moving their hands up away from this area clearing from your energy field all of the issues that have lead you to believe that you are not love. They clear all of the issues that have always prevented you from stepping into your power as a powerfully loving being. They now clear these issues from the etheric field of the auxiliary as they pull their hands up along your outstretched arms past your wrists, cusp your hands and then very gently draws this energy from your hands clearing you, and releasing it to the angelic workers within the realms of transmutation.

Now it is your turn. Turn around facing your partner. Your partner’s arms are up, outstretched, now place your hands upon your partner’s abdomen and slowly run your hands up across their chest be it their pectorals or bust and come to rest with your palm signature over their auxiliary and look them in the eye. Acknowledge their appreciation as you are about to remove from them all of that which has lead them to believe that they are expected to be something that they are not. All of that which has prevented them from fully embracing you in your totality, all of that which you feel is imbalanced within the relationship with your current partner, all of that which you would like to heal within your current relationship, be that your marriage, relationship or lover it matters not.

Now just before releasing this energy create a small pump action as you cup your palms over their auxiliary and then slowly draw this up and away. Feel the compassion in your hands, touch their skin, smell their fragrance as you facilitate the removal of all of the blockages from this area. Allow this energy clearing to refresh the flow of lymph through the body as it also supports you in creating the healthiest of relationships. Draw it up; out and then gently release this energy into the dimensions of transmutation.

Now both of you lower your arms and simply stand facing each other returning the love within each other’s eyes. You are now going to turn with your backs facing each other.

So with your backs facing each other, lower your arms so that your hands touch holding your fingers on either side, turn your heads to the same side with your cheeks touching and depending on your flexibility almost have your lips touching. I now want you to share with each other what you are looking for in each other. I’ll leave you for a while whilst you whisper magic into each other’s ears.

Now, with all the formalities done as you feel the blood pumping through your veins for a change, turn and face each other again.

Stand so close to each other that your Christ Chakras are touching (sternum above heart). Push your chest into your partner’s breasts or be aware of your breasts as you lean into his tight chest.

Now lower your hands and placing your hands behind each others lower back as you pull closer gently touching each other’s buttocks. The buttocks dear friends are one of the most sensitive and most neglected areas of the body. The sciatica has a vast collection of nerves that feeds the lower limbs, where the other most intricate polar opposite nerve plexus feeds the complexity of the brain. The buttocks carry the stresses and strains of the human body, keeping it up, keeping it taught. The responsibility of keeping you in magnificent posture thus state of physical being is shared by the buttocks and the abdomen. Most people let the abdomen go and with that so do the buttocks. Now turn to the side touching each other as you stand side-by-side.

Now move your hands down so that you each touch one another’s lower back and then move your hands down touching each other over the area of the sciatica thus the upper buttocks.

The upper buttocks as I have mentioned contains the nerve plexus that influences the sciatica and lower limbs as well as the buttocks. The sciatic nerve beloved friends often cause severe pain within the buttocks and lower limbs, especially if you are not flexible be that physically or emotionally. It also causes lower back pain due to a blockage within the nerve path or plexus. The sciatic nerve that stems from the buttocks is the most unloved nerve within the human body and by placing your hands upon each other’s sciatica side by side nurturing each other’s most unloved part, I invite you now to very slowly walk off the 8th dimensional heart platform that was created for you. As you do so look down at the magnificent malachite touching your bare feet. Look at your partners toes, feet and then glance up at their body and feel at ease within your own skin.

Now gently step off the heart energy still embracing each other side by side and make your way back into the beautiful night-time gardens with the glittering diamonds stretching across the skies above you.

Become aware of the fact that all the experiences that you create within your lives are what awaken your soul aspect. Understand that the partners you are with are the ones you have chosen to be with and indeed should that no longer fall within your favor; you are the only ones that can change this, but no matter what my friends never allow the gifts of sensation to escape you.

I am Ishtar.

Powerful Women…

Live your life in such a way
that when your feet hit the
floor in the morning
the devil shudders and says,
‘Oh, shit…she’s awake!’

*male friends just replace she’s with he’s!

The Great Unplug

(photo courtesy vlambi)

There is a feeling in the air that things are changing rapidly, that time is speeding-up, that the world as a whole is losing its collective sanity, and that something ominous might be on the horizon.

Things are changing rapidly, time is speeding-up, and as the Light on the planet increases, so does the dark.

(Though Light is exponentially and geometrically more powerful than the dark and so an eventual tipping point will be reached and the Light will consume the dark. Some believe that tipping point has already been reached and that process of transmutation has already begun.)

We are watching the beginning stages of the Great Transformation. Institutions once thought to be rock-solid are starting to crumble: the government, Wall Street, religion.

This is the Aquarian Age, the Age of (Spiritual) Fire, the Age of Michael, the age when all that is hidden will be revealed. The truth is coming forward, the distortions are being exposed.

Am I talking about a coming Armageddon? No. That possibility has long since passed. Though there will be upheaval. There will be change. It can be as challenging, or graceful as we choose.

The central “Dance” (see “The Twelve Dances of the UNiverse”) of the Universe is: That Which We Place Our Attention On We Become Conscious Of. In other words, we will experience the world we are connected to.

The current world around us — for the most part — is fear-based and power-based. Those energies are no longer sustainable and they WILL BE transformed. Enough people on the planet are now spirit-based and have created, in effect, two parallel worlds existing side-by-side: the world as we know it now, and another that is being born as I write this. One is fear-based, the other is love-based.

There is another Dance of the Universe: Free Will Is Absolute. In other words, our choices will always be honored with the natural outcomes of those choices. Stay with fear and we will experience more and more of it. Open to love and we all experience more and more of that. This is also the Dance Of Attraction.

Those who continue to live as they have, will, in all likelihood, experience the ‘Armageddon’ of their nightmares. Those who ‘unplug’ from the current culture of fear and death, will absolutely experience the ‘heaven’ of their dreams.

There is an ancient truth that if you are sitting in the middle of a vast desert and an army of a million soldiers are coming toward you — if you are not in fear — they will walk right past you. They literally will not see you because you are not operating from the same vibratory frequency as they are.

So, how to unplug?

It’s very easy. And very hard.

Every morning and throughout the day make a statement to the Universe that you are no longer a part of the (lower) mass consciousness of the planet, its politics, its culture, its history. That you consciously choose to be a part of the New Earth. (As Yeshua says, ask and you shall receive.)

Call upon your angels and guides to gracefully disconnect you from the lower energies of this planet and connect you to the higher energies.

Call upon Archangel Michael (or whomever you feel connected to) to sever all energy cords connecting you to any person, place, or thing that is holding you back from your highest potential and that you may be holding back from their highest potential.

Release all karmic ties and debts now and forever. How? Just command it: “I now release myself and all my brothers and sisters from all karmic ties and debts. I forgive everyone and ask forgiveness of everyone.” Done.

Imagine an electric violet sword, or knife, or scissors cutting away dark threads of energy connecting you to the mass consciousness of the planet.

STOP WATCHING THE NEWS on a daily basis. The news is not only fear-based, it is terror-based, and gossip-based, and power-based. If there is anything you really need to know, the universe will inform you. The universe doesn’t rely on CNN.

Stop reading news stories that speak to fear — any fear — all fear. Those stories, like fear itself, are an illusion. And truthfully, do you really need to know about the murder down the street? That is the affair of those directly involved, not you. You either know you are safe and protected in the universe, or you do not know that. Not yet.

If you do read about something or watch a news story that makes your blood boil — disconnect. Unplug. Remind yourself that is just the drama of the old world, it is not your drama. Not anymore. Become detached. Be the observer, not the participant in fear-based experiences.

Challenge ourselves to let go of guilt and shame and anger and judgment and criticism. Drama.

As trite as it sounds: Think positive thoughts. Focus on all the positive things that are going on in the world. Every day on this planet, for every hundred thousand people (or even a million) stuck in fear and power and the dark, there are at least 5 billion people on this planet getting along peacefully.

Be one of those, and realize that heaven on earth is already here.


Two Cleansings

The Salt Rub

If you’ve had a rough day and are feeling drained, or if you’ve been in difficult traffic, or around draining people, or in a raucous crowd, or slammed by loud music, or had a tough day with the boss, then you’ve probably picked up a lot of negative energy attachments to your energetic body.

One way to clean them off and restore vitality to your energy body is to take a cup of salt (sea salt is best, but table salt is okay; not too coarse) and add some warm water and a little oil (lavender is best, but olive oil is fine, or any of your favorite oils).

As you take a shower, or bath, rub yourself all over with the salt in counter-clockwise motions, focusing on the lower chakras and between the legs and the lower back, and then the joints, but cover the entire body. Then clean the salt and oil off with your regular soap in clockwise motions. Rinse off, and see how much lighter you feel.

As a general rule, you might consider doing this cleaning every few days, or after a night of difficult dreams and erratic sleep as you can build up negative energy attachments over the course of a night’s sleep.

The Violet Shower

Another method of cleansing (I suggest using both) is to take a shower and imagine being surrounded and washed by electric violet light. You can also invoke the Violent Flame and/or the Aquarian Fire (also violet).

Violet light is a sacred cleansing light the INSTANTLY transforms — without any judgment — any and all negative energies and thoughtforms into their polar opposite.

While in the shower of violet light, you might make a present tense statement to the Universe in gratitude for the transmutations that have taken place. I’ll offer the following, but please make up your own as well:

“I am grateful that all my negative energies, negative thoughtforms and negative intent has been transmuted into positive energy, positive thoughtforms and positive intent.

I am grateful that all me fears have been transmuted into faith and trust and unconditional love.

I am grateful that all my illusions have been transmuted into clarity, truth and wisdom.

I am grateful that all my judgments and criticisms of myself — and all others — have been transmuted into non-judgment and non-criticism, compassion and understanding.

I am grateful that all my dis-ease has been transmuted into radiant health.

I am grateful that all my debt, lack, need and want has been transmuted into abundance, prosperity, wealth and success.

I am grateful that all my unbalanced sexual energy has been transmuted into balanced, healed, joyful sexual energy.

I am grateful that all my jealousy and anger has been transmuted into self-confidence and laughter.

I am grateful that all my guilt and shame has been transmuted into self-love.

I am grateful that all my need for approval has been transmuted into self-worth.

I am grateful that my ego, pride, glamour (spiritual ego), self-righteousness and hypocrisy has been transmuted into humility and service.

I am grateful that karmic debts have transmuted into present moment awareness and forgiveness.

I am grateful that all my connections to the lower mass consciousness of this planet have been transmuted into connection to the New Earth, infinite abundance and whole life for all.

I am grateful that all my separation has been transmuted into Oneness.

So It Is. So It Is. So It Is.”

The Absentee Landlord

(photo courtesy s-t-r-a-n-g-e)

Everything in the universe is conscious at varying levels. Everything is a manifestation of Divine Mind. As Yeshua says, even the chair we’re sitting on has consciousness running through it.

In metaphysics it is believed that the evolution of consciousness in the world of matter begins with the mineral kingdom, which as contradictory as it may seem, is consciousness learning to move for the first time. Though we can’t see it, in fact all minerals are ever-growing and changing. Like the child that must first learn to crawl before it can walk, consciousness must learn the rudiments of movement through the seemingly immobile stone.

It is then believed that the next evolution is that of first emotion, and occurs within the plant kingdom.

The next is consciousness experiencing the first sparks of intelligence within the insect kingdom, though the seemingly pre-programmed intelligence of a species as one mind.

Then the wild animal kingdom and the experience and expression of group consciousness within a ‘family,’ or heard, or pack.

Then onto the domestic animal kingdom where individual consciousness begins to grow; your pet as your companion.

Then the mammalian kingdom of the whales and dolphins — and the human kingdom — as the expression of higher intelligence and compassion and ultimately, the spiritual.

There is an ancient metaphysical statement of profound truth: “As above, so below. As within, so without.” It means that there is no such thing as size or distance (see quantum physics and “non-locality”). It means that the earth is made up of the same stuff as the universe; the universe is made up of the same stuff as the earth.

That our bodies are not separate from the kingdoms of the earth, but that our bodies are made up of these very same kingdoms. That our organs directly relate to the stars and planets of our solar system. That our solar system directly relates to the galaxy and the universe as a whole, and that they all are duplicated within the smallest sub-atomic particle.

To understand the human body, study the universe.

To understand the universe, study the human body.

The point in question? That our human body is not just alive but also conscious. That the entirety of the universe is within it. That our organs, tissues, fluids, etc. possess all of the various levels of evolutionary consciousness. That quite simply, the heart ‘knows’ it is a heart, the liver a liver, the tooth a tooth, the cell a cell. And they ‘know’ their purpose and they perform their tasks magnificently.

I think of our bodies as made up of “magnificent children.” They are ‘savants’ at their jobs, but don’t completely understand the ‘world’ around them or the energies that effect them. They don’t ‘understand’ stress or anger or hate or fear. They only ‘know’ to do their best to process these attacking energies within their individual abilities. But they can only do so much, and once overwhelmed, they begin to collapse and dis-ease takes over. Even death.

For the most part we have been “absentee landlords” in the dwelling called our bodies.

So, how about a different approach to the body? How about considering it as an equal partner in our health, which wants nothing more than to do its job successfully, resulting in a full, happy life, and assuring its own conscious evolution.

Consider beginning a personal relationship with the conscious universe within us. As silly as it may sound, consider introducing ourselves to our bodies (you’ll be surprised by the response you get). Consider talking to each and every body element and asking them questions about the state of our health — and guess what? You’ll get answers.

And here’s a really silly idea which is surprisingly powerful. Consider giving names to various body parts; ask them what they’d like to be called (again, prepare to be surprised). We don’t have to name every tooth or cell, but just a few organs here and there to integrate our consciousness into our body. To become, in effect, a team with a shared goal.

How about this: Tell each and every organ and system that you love them. And feel your body light-up with gratitude.

Like everything else in the universe — including the rocks and ants and tulips — the body wants to be loved and appreciated. It wants to evolve, just as we do.

It needs us.

And we need it.

two wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a
battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two
“wolves” inside us all.

One is Fear. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret,
greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Love. It is joy, peace, hope, serenity, humility,
kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

“Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

I am now open to a flow of spiritual energy in which I perceive the most worthy course of action for this day. My service, being selfless, opens new doors of supply, making available all of the tools required so that my work will be beautiful, energetic, and influential to the highest degree.
