If you are looking to step up your spiritual game or enhance your energetic vibration in 2017, well you’ve come to the right place! As a Reiki Master Teacher, I’m always looking for ways to cleanse and clear my energy, as well as grow and change spiritually.

1. Learn Reiki (Holy Fire)

Reiki is an excellent way to gain a greater understanding of your own personal “energy”, aura or electromagnetic field and how you interact with the world. For me, it has been an empowering journey. I’m continuing my training by taking a Holy Fire II Reiki ART/Master Class this February!

2. Float

Like anything, you receive what you are open to receiving. Floating can be a transcendent experience if you are in the right state of mind and are open to letting go. My favorite place to float in Philly is Halcyon Floats. I’ve also been thinking about what it would be like to receive energy work from a distance, while floating. If anyone would like to try it out, let me know! Or if you happen to read this and then go book a float, say you heard it here first and mention my name 😉

3. Ayahuasca Ceremony

global_432623975My first time drinking Ayahuasca was a life changing experience. It’s hard to truly put the experience into words, but what I can say is that I believe that it has powerful healing potential. Similar to what I mentioned in the post above, “you get what you give.” Your Ayahuasca experience may depend on the amount of work you put in to prepare before the ceremony, as well as integrate afterwards. It was challenging, difficult, scary, beautiful, life-affirming, death-affirming, humbling and enlightening. This really deserves a whole separate post which I will begin writing soon.

4. Ajna Light

ajna-light_2-300x300

This highly effective tool uses very powerful photonic light stimulation to induce the same rhythmic brainwaves states seen in advanced meditation practitioners.

I tried the Ajna Light when I was at Symbiosis Gathering 2015. During this experience I had very vivid and powerful visions… but my friend using the same machine said she didn’t see anything. This spurred me to want to use my reiki skills to guide people into deeper states with the assistance of this machine. In 2017, I would love to find another Ajna Light and receive a session, and eventually save up to purchase my own light.

5. Juice Cleanse

I have only begun to realize the benefits juice fasting within the past year. The basic idea is that by consuming a diet of healthy liquids, you give your stomach a break from breaking down fibers. With less time spent breaking down fibers, it has more time to cleanse and detoxify. There are many versions of fasting- including consuming only water, air, or liquids. My first juice cleanse was inspired by Alan Pratt and The Monthly 3-Day Cleanse Community on facebook. 14238137_10153691800407676_5156318860688420847_n

“You can do a juice fast, a smoothie diet, go raw/vegan for 3 days, abstain from coffee/dairy/wheat/meat/sugar/etc for 3 days – whatever game works for you!”- AlanPratt.net

I was already on a plant-based diet, and the fact that he made it so open-ended encouraged me to participate. I’m pretty sure I ended up eating maybe a banana and a vegetable in addition to my juice. But that is a huge start to becoming more conscious of what I put into my temple! Starting next Monday, I will be participating in a 7 Day Fruit Fast Challenge, consuming only raw fruit.

6. Create or Purchase Orgone

11150966_660163070756631_6688263177363512902_nI remember the first time I encountered Orgone at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in 2015, from the vendors Orgone Paradise. I held my hand over the objects and could feel the difference in frequency. I bought that first piece and have been in love ever since! I even made a few of my own pieces of orgone last summer, but I wasn’t careful and got some resin in my eye. I was eager to try again so I made a pyramid 2 weeks ago.

 

 

7. Ormus

“Ormus, often referred to as ORME (Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Element or M-state element), is made from water and other substances and is also known as monoatomic gold.”- Be Well Buzz “What is Ormus?”

Basically it’s a magical elixir to help you become a health superstar and alchemist. Ormus is still a bit mysterious to me, but it was one of those things that my intuition or my gut feeling drew me towards.

8. Travel to Oregon Eclipse

Kevin KoChen, one of the founders of Symbiosis Gathering and Oregon Eclipse believes that Music Festivals Can Help Bridge the Donald Trump Era’s Divides. But Oregon Eclipse isn’t your standard music festival. This special gathering is centered around the fact that there will be a total solar eclipse visible from Oregon in August. The event is also a collaboration between many festival organizers and producers from around the world! One of the prominent genres at the festival; Psychedelic Trance, is one of my favorite types of music to listen to these days.

9. White Tantric Yoga

A one day meditation workshop, including plenty of eye-gazing. One of my other goals is to study and explore Tantra in general. I have had one significant tantric love making experience in the past. And a few others as well. But this workshop is not about sex.

Using the diagonal energy, the Mahan Tantric Yogi Bhajan, connects his subtle body to the subtle bodies of the participants through the course facilitator. This works the same way as a worldwide telephone system that relies on satellites and electromagnetic energy in order to connect two parties. – WhiteTantricYoga.com

10. Practice Breathwork

Breathwork is conscious control of the breath in order to influence mental, emotional and physical states. You may be familiar with Ujjayi or Kapalabhati, Breath of Fire from yoga class- these were my first introductions to breathwork. But what I am talking about here is more of a practice in itself, that can also be done under the guidance of a facilitator.

I previously wrote about my first Breathwork experience with Michelle of Pushing Beauty. I had an emotional, transformative experience which you can read about in this previous post.  But I’m also curious to experience different types of Breathwork, including the well known Holotropic Breathworktaught by Stanislav Grof. He will be teaching a Holotropic Breathworkworkshop at the upcoming Psychedelic Science Conference in Oakland this April- which I am super excited about!

“The process itself uses very simple means: it combines accelerated breathing with evocative music in a special set and setting.” Holotropic.com

What are the Akashic Records? & My Defining Moment

ladynada-207x300
Lady Nada

I was selling singing bowls at The Mind Body Spirit Expo in April 2015, when I experienced my first metaphysical healing. I paid $40 for 1 minute, but it was well worth it. I thought about receiving the healing on my first day there, Saturday, but the healer, Art Gutkin, said, you have to be open to it, if you are skeptical it won’t work. As someone who had never experienced any kind of energy healing before, I was a bit skeptical or even scared. But I told him about the pain I had been experiencing in my back, and right shoulder, and he placed his hand on that spot. I could feel the energy streaming through my body, mind and consciousness. I let out some tears. And I could feel a sense of newness in my life.

Later in that same day, the lady I was working for received an energy healing from Mark Ingenito. After they were finished, he gave me a piece of black tourmaline, and said that I could hold it in my hand and say “Archangel Michael, please protect me from any and all negative energy”.  That was the first time I had heard of Archangel Michael in the modern sense. He also said to me, “You know you have good energy, you should learn reiki!” And that’s where it all started.

I am still eager to learn more about the Akashic Records, but I haven’t found a teacher in the Philadelphia area.

“The Akashic records are a compendium of thoughts, events, and emotions encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the astral plane.”- Wikipedia

I’m also excited to announce that I will be taking the Usui/ Holy Fire II ART/ Reiki Master Teacher Certification at The Prana House in West Chester, PA on February 17th, 18th and 19th. The teacher of the course reached out to me through my website to let me know about the course, and I expressed my interest. Once I started reading more on the Reiki.Org website, I felt the Holy Fire energy coming to me as I was reading. Of course this was just the beginning, but it was a sure sign that I should sign up for the class!

“It is also apparent that the Holy Fire, once ignited in the student, continues to grow in strength and vibration, cleansing more deeply and healing and empowering in ever more powerful ways.”- William Lee Rand

Christie Marie Sheldon & Lady Nada

Christie Marie Sheldon is an amazing intuitive healer that helps people to clear the 24 major abundance blocks! You can find her recordings on YouTube as well as Mindvalley and UnlimitedAbundance.com.

mqdefault

The first time I listened to her recording through Mindvalley a few weeks ago, it really changed the way that I thought about money. I’ve heard the phrase “Money is energy”, but knowing that intellectually doesn’t mean that my subconscious Abundance blocks will be automatically removed; (that’s where energy work comes in). I’m always aiming to change for the better, in the flow of my life. I love that she always starts us out by connecting to the light, 10 feet above our energy fields. During the recordings, she laughs often and it makes me feel at ease.

I also love her phrase; “What would it take for me to … (fill in the blank)”. 

“What would it take for me to get paid for being myself?”

“What would it take for me to get a job that I love, and go to work feeling energized and passionate?”

“What would it take for me to meet my soulmate?”

“What would it take for me to live 100% pain free?”

These are just a few examples I dreamed up after being inspired by Christie’s brilliance. As you may know from my previous article on Babaji, I love connecting with the Ascended Masters. I know that Christie is a glowing ball of light, and she is a very gifted healer. I had heard of an Ascended Master called Lady Nada a few months ago. Recently after my friend Chas of Third Eye Hypnosis suggested I watch to this YouTube video of Christie speaking live, I started to notice the resemblance between Christie and Lady Nada.

Now when I say this, I don’t mean that Christie is the only manifestation of Lady Nada, or that she’s not her unique self. I just wondered if there could be a connection between the two beings, since they are both powerful symbols of abundance! If you have any theories or ideas about this, please let me know in the comments!

 

Do you see the resemblance? Either way, they are both cool beings to listen to and learn from! Christie sees money as a cool tool that she can use to spread joy and cheer. And she said that a job is a thing that you choose to do, you put your life force into it and it gives back to you.

I have also recently noticed that the stars above the Eagle’s head on the 1 dollar bill resembles the Flower of Life. What do you think?

united_states_one_dollar_bill_reverse

That being said, it’s not the piece of paper that needs to be worshipped, but it’s all of the people, experiences and Earthly material pleasures that money can lead to. What would it take for me to live the life of my dreams?

 

Love & Light,

Victoria

I missed my flight in Oakland…

Tuesday, September 6th~

I missed my flight at the Oakland airport, but luckily I was able to get a ticket for the next day for free. And maybe was Divinely timed & everything is perfect anyway.

I was stopped by some Christians that were preaching on the street. They asked if I needed any prayers. At first I said “No, I’m fine”.I had been listening to them preach from accross the street while waiting at the bus stop. And I was resisting hearing the unavoidable speeches and wishing I could get away so they wouldn’t try to recruit me or something. Then I realized my bus was on the other side of the street… The same side that they were on. I crossed the street and stopped at a to-go restaurant window and bought a coffee and a banana.

After I made my purchase, of course, one girl and one guy from the Christian crew approached me and asked if they could pray with me. I thought to myself, ‘well this is something I do anyway, so why not try it?’ They asked if they could place their hands on me and I said yes. The girl started praying to “the Lord God.” And yes I do believe in God. I also heard them talking about Jesus earlier in their preaching. and I believe in Jesus as an Ascended Master too. After missing the flight earlier that day, I felt a bit out of sorts. So I admitted I could use some divine assistance.

During the prayer, she said things like “Dear God, show this girl how beautiful she is. Clear away any past hurt. Help her live her life purpose.” I could really feel the energy, and my right hand shaking. Nothing she was saying seemed to go against anything I already believe in, or would truly ask for myself. Afterwards I mentioned that I practice reiki, and explained that it is a light touch hands on healing method. The girl had not heard of it, but the boy had! They asked for my phone number but luckily I could escape gracefully by saying that I live in Philadelphia.

With the help of Google Maps, I was able to find a picture of the exact location where this occurred.

The moral of the story is that, even though I no longer feel like Christianity is a religion for me (or any one religion), I realize that that doesn’t mean it should be for no one! As my family still identifies as Christian, I had been feeling confused about where I fit in the picture. At times I even felt guilty for being so directly connected to Spirit. But this instance in Oakland proved that there are some Christians that may be very connected to Spirit as well.

Once I arrived back home to Philadelphia, I attended the I Can Do It Conference put on by Hay House Publishers. I had planned on attending the Teal Swan talk on Sunday, but as I walked past the room for Kyle Gray, I felt very good, high vibrational energy. I felt something pulling me towards that room! (Not out of my control of course). But it was one of those moments where I know I was meant to go with the flow, and change what I had planned in my mind. He spoke of how he used to be a Sunday school teacher. Now he is a Psychic and Medium and Angel Communicator. He also explained that the Angels are the direct messengers of God, and they are available for everyone to communicate with. No matter your race, age, religion, sexuality or lifestyle. He also explained that angels are pure energy. The images we see of angels are human depictions that have been translated into our third dimension. That’s why one image of Archangel Michael may have blonde hair and another may have brown. This also gave me some clarity, as to my own connection with the angels, as it seems so far that I don’t SEE them, but I FEEL their energy. This may change in the future!

Real Life Magic

Monday, September 5th, 2:48AM

“Everything is perfect” is the quote of Burning Man for me this year. I just had an amazing session with White Love. The craziest thing happened…

The story begins with my most recent float tank session at Halcyon Floats a week before I left for Burning Man. During my float, I saw a vision of a face that looked like a great spirit with piercing eyes. I realized that the vision looked similar to images and depictions I have seen of the Ascended Masters. After my float, I decided to do a Google image search for Ascended Masters to see if any of the faces looked familiar. Scrolling through, I looked at the images and also “felt the vibe” as I looked at each image.

This was the image

mahavata_200
Mahavatar Babaji

that seemed the most reminiscent of the vision I saw in the float tank. After further research, I discovered that his name was Babaji.

On the last night of Burning Man, after the temple burn, I asked one of my camp mates, White Love, if I could receive one of his healing sessions. As it was the last night of Burning Man, I was feeling a bit lonely. It is funny because leading up to Burning Man, I was all about this “Self-Marriage” that I was planning to have at Burning Man. But it turned out that once I got there, I didn’t really feel guided to do it as a serious ceremony. (Maybe next year).

Regardless, I still explored the concept of what Self Love means to me, and what the energy of Love really feels like. At Burning Man I felt like I was really able to be myself and connect with humans on a deeper level, without the societal norms and mental programs that hold us back in the regular world. And because of that experience, I did transform into a more whole version of myself. I know the concept that “I am already perfect, complete and whole”. But it’s not really what we are taught to believe. I desire to live in community with others, and in a space of interconnectedness and interdependence, and to let go of co-dependence. It was also a great place to practice and experiment with my own personal desires and boundaries.

I rode on the back of White Love’s bicycle on the way back home from the Temple Burn. We made a brief stop at a saloon, and there was an air of peace, compassion and even connected solitude throughout the playa. The saloon had an amazing fire ceiling, which you can see in this video I recorded:

Inside of the van was a large gong and a few other small instruments at the foot of the bed. The session consisted of me lying down on the bed in a resting position with my eyes closed while I listened to a Quantum Light Breath recording by Richard Bock. White Love was just going to be there to guide the session with sound and he also said a few phrases and encouraged me to join in, like saying “Yessss” with a drawn out sssss. And lots of breathing in and out. I laughed and I cried and saw many different visions. I saw a native american man and woman. I saw different colors and shapes, and I also felt the presence of Babaji. I could hear specific phrases and statements from the recording that helped me to release certain blockages or “thought forms” that may have been holding me back, in relation to certain chakras. Specifically my solar plexus, heart and throat. (Well really all of the chakras). But as I felt I was mentally preparing to enter back into the real world, this session helped me to reconfigure and recalibrate my energetic body. I laughed and I cried multiple times during the session. When I “came back” from the session and opened my eyes, I saw White Love, but I thought he was Babaji. I knew he was White Love but at the same time he was Babaji. He was sitting with wide eyes and a straight spine, resembling some of the image depictions I had seen of Babaji online.

Babaji in space 😉

I didn’t say anything, as I wasn’t sure if White Love had ever even heard of Babaji. As I awoke, I started to recap my session and give thanks for the amazing healing that i felt. I feel that White Love, was merely a guide, and he guided me in the self healing process (while listening to the recording). Yet I couldn’t have done it without him. After about 10 minutes of discussion, I looked to my right and saw a photo of Babaji. It is very hard to put into words, the mystery and synchronicity that I felt. I was actually a bit frightened, just because I had never experienced anything as extreme as that before (in regards to connections with other dimensions and ascended masters). It was very real.

When I told White Love, “when I awoke, I actually thought you were Babaji”, he replied “I am”. I smiled and felt very glad. I interpreted this statement to mean that he was Babaji, but he was also White Love. Maybe he was even channeling Babaji. Who knows. But all I know is that I am very grateful for this unique experience. When we started talking about Babaji, White Love said, did you know that they say that Babaji has the perfect balance of masculine and feminine aspects in his face. I had not known that, and thought it was an interesting fact. It also related to my interest in uniting and balancing the divine feminine and masculine aspects within myself.

I have told this story to so many people, but it took me a while to finally finish this blog post. I feel very grateful for my life, and the experiences I had at Burning Man.

Sending you positive, loving energy, right through this screen!

Love,

Victoria

 

 

 

 

Sa Ra Key: My experience

14517575_10209057349904911_5759882651369596788_n
Wearing the Sa Ra Key

When I wear my Sa Ra Key, I feel more protected from EMFs and also just negative energy in general. When I worked at a call center, I had to be around a lot of computers and on days when I didn’t wear my key, I could feel the EMFs drowning me.

For me it is a talisman, I feel more synchronistic and in sync with the Universe. It also heightens my awareness and energy levels.

 
I also wear it whenever I am doing reiki or energy work. It helps me to create a positive bubble of energy so that I don’t pick up anything unwanted from clients. I also like the fact that the Sa Ra Key is connected to people who wear one all around the world.

My Healing Journey

I am very grateful to Eileen for the energy healing session that I received yesterday. While I do feel that this is a very private and intimate experience that occurred, I am also excited and eager to share what I can about my experience. I feel that she has helped me greatly and I highly recommend her!

2747173

I have had chronic back pain for many years, I can remember having it since high school. I remember telling my grandma about it and she said, “Oh it’s probably from those flips you did in Cheerleading”. Although I didn’t remember a specific incident in any of the sports that I participated in, I thought she could be right. And as I started to learn about the Mind-Body connection, I grew more curious of where this pain could really be coming from. I knew that it faded in and out at times, and when I was on vacation or relaxing, and easing my stress, the pain was less strong. So I mostly thought it was caused by general “stress“. But I still knew I had to change something about my mind and my energetic vibration.

I have tried many healers and holistic healing methods to deal with this pain. The first time that experienced metaphysical healing was an Akashic Record healing in April of 2015. I told him about my pain and he placed his hand on my right shoulder to facilitate the healing. It was an unbelievably magical experience, as I had never felt anything like it before. It’s hard to put into words but basically it felt like Source energy flowing through my right arm and body. So after that, I definitely felt a significant change in my vibration, but eventually the back pain continued.

During the session yesterday, we talked a bit first about what is going on in my life and where I want to be. I told her that I am excited about my path as an Energy Healer and I can’t wait until I have enough clients and workshops to make a living full time doing this work. Of course, she was very realistic with me and told me that it is a slow process and I shouldn’t quit my job just yet. As a veteran of the Music Industry, she understood my struggle and reassured me “you can bring your reiki with you no matter where you go, or what you are doing.” While the past year after graduating from college has been rough, I realize now that I am discovering and building my own path and career. These are experiences that I need to have, in order to heal myself and understand the healing of others as well.

“In my Intuitive Energy Work sessions, I utilize channeled Intuitive information and energetic healing methods including Integrated Energy Therapy®, Usui and Lightarian Reiki, Intuitive Readings, Metatronia Therapy®, the Akashic RecordsColor TherapyAuric Clearing, and Cord Cutting I work with clients to clear away any lower vibrational elements attached to the energy fields which cause distress, raise the body and soul’s energetic vibration, and help work through and release emotional and physical issues to transform into your most joyous, successful and inspired self.” -Eileen of Intuitive Energy Work

I am not saying that the other healers and healing methods I have tried did not work. They all have helped me along my healing process (which is ever-expanding). There will always be new things to work on and heal within myself. But I am just ecstatic about the connection that I made with this particular healer. The funny part is, I found her by googling “Energy Healer Music Industry”, as I was looking for someone that might be intertwined in those two worlds and understand me as well. At first I felt a little bit shy to open up to someone I had never met over the phone, but within a minute I felt very comfortable as I felt like I was talking to a loving human and friend. Eventually we got to the energy healing and I lied down on my bed with my eyes closed. She explained some of what she was doing as we went along, which was interesting to me and useful for me to know.

METATRON111111111

She called in various Angels including Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel and she said that Archangel Gabriel will stay with me for a few weeks. She asked, “Do you have back pain in your middle back?” I did not mention anything about this pain, so I knew she could really intuitively feel it. I replied that “Yes it’s usually my upper right shoulder,” but I knew she was still sensing the same thing. She said “What happened when you were 14?” and I burst into tears. I had not cried this freely for as long as I can remember. I think the fact that it was a distance session also helped me to let out these emotions and tears. I didn’t even know what had happened when I was 14… I just was crying. She said “When did you have your first boyfriend?” I told her that that wasn’t until I was a junior in high school so I would have been older than 14. This conversation in the midst of the energy healing really helped me to pinpoint and gain clarity of my own healing process. I thought for a moment along the lines of my first sexual experiences with men and something came to mind. I was at a Slightly Stoopid concert in 2008 with two of my best friends. We had been to high school dance where the common dance was “grinding”. We also liked to talk to random people at concerts. It was a Slightly Stoopid concert so of course there were plenty of people drunk and under the influence of other drugs. I remember dancing with a man (maybe in his early 20s?). I remember seeing my friend kissing the guy she was dancing with. For some reason that wasn’t happening for me. I remember looking back at his face and not really having the desire to kiss him, as I had never kissed a guy before and didn’t know if I would be good at it or how to do it. As I write this, I am remembering what occurred. He was a white guy with short brown buzzed hair. He was tightly grabbing my hips as was common in the method of grinding. I feel like I enjoyed being close to another human but I was also unsure of him. I saw other girls with boyfriends in high school, but me and my friends didn’t really have boyfriends yet. He was putting his hands inside the edges of my shorts. Eventually he got to the inside of my sacred vagina. I think he was drunk, and I may have been a little bit buzzed myself. I am not sure of whether I wanted this to happen or not, but he definitely did not ask for permission or have my consent. Consent was not something I really knew about at the time. I basically thought, “I didn’t say no or tell him to stop, so he must have been in the right.” But thinking back now, at that age, I wasn’t even at the age of consent! As I repeat this story, I think maybe I rationalized the experience afterwards to tell myself it was better than it really was. I am even catching myself rationalizing the experience in a way that doesn’t acknowledge my pain and hides my true feelings as a woman. I told myself that it wasn’t a big deal, he just fingered me.  I know that I had my own issues and I probably chose this to happen to me. And the man was probably not trying to harm me at the time, or maybe part of his soul was missing and he didn’t care if he hurt me. (But I like to believe in the good in people). And these thoughts and beliefs may have been part of my rationalization and hiding my own sadness. Anyway, as the healing occurred, I thought of this incident and kept crying even more. Eileen said that a negative entity had attached to me at that time. She said “yes this was a traumatic experience for you”. I realize that there is much more to the incident than the physical act of a man a barely knew fingering me. It involves my own state of consciousness and being and vulnerability at the time, and how I reacted to the whole situation before, during and afterwards in that period of my life. But until yesterday, it had not hit me that that period of my life and that incident had so much to do with my chronic pain. And now I wonder about this negative entity. Where did it come from? Was it from that man? Or was it from somewhere else in the metaphysical dimensions that latched onto me in that state of vulnerability?  And how was Eileen able to clear that entity away from me so effectively? And today that ghost of that pain that I felt for so long is still healing. But this was the most clearing that I had ever felt. I know that I feel great and this feels like a breakthrough for me.

I am confident in myself as a Reiki Healer, and my current level of development of my gifts. The clients that come to me are ready for the healing that I can help them with. As I continue to grow and learn as a healer, I would love to be able to help people as deeply and effectively as Eileen helped me!

Love & Light

Upcoming Events~Awaken Fair

Awaken Fair Website

Hello friends,

Sometimes I wonder if I’m making the right decisions. Even down to the smallest things, like where I should spend my time this afternoon, or who to be around so that my vibration can be lifted.

Well, worrying about the decisions doesn’t help. If I make a mistake, it’s a lesson learned and I keep moving. I am really excited that I made the intuitive decision to start working with a holistic and intuitive business coach; Angela Artemis of Powered by Intuition! We had our first meeting on Thursday and that’s when I decided it was really time to make a change. I thought “I could wait and save up more money before I start the program, or I could start now and increase my income along the way”. I really feel that this work will help and empower me in the long run and in a sustainable way. The program is 3 months long. Right now I have 1 dedicated client and a few other clients here and there. I am writing this down so that I can come back and check up on it in 3 months and see where I stand! I can envision myself having the perfect amount of loving and generous clients, that are healed by my energy. And I will make a joyful and plentiful living doing what I love.

I plan to teach my first Reiki Level 1 class in Philadelphia by that time as well. If you’re in the Philadelphia area and interested in learning Reiki with me, send me a message! Also, I am excited that I will be taking part in the Awaken Fair once again on July 31st in NYC. I will be doing reiki and sound healing. You can find the details on the Awaken Fair here. They even put a link to my website! I will admit that last time, I did the fair in January, I only had one client! But I met so many amazing people, and I have much more confidence and experience under my belt this time around, so I’m looking forward to filling my day with clients, potential collaborators and new friends!

Tip-Toe of Faith

leap of faith

When I was at the MUM Expo on Sunday, I spoke to an elderly man with grey hair at one of the many booths providing Past Life Readings. He was there supporting his wife who was doing the readings. I told him about my interest in past life regression, and I asked, “Is there any healing involved or is it just information?” He replied that it was just information, but it could be very useful and helpful to me. A few minutes into our conversation, I noticed that he only had one hand- his other arm stopped around his elbow. I did the socially polite thing and tried not to stare. But during his schpiel, he brought up the subject of his limb. He said, “I was born like this. When I was younger I used to get angry and think ‘Why me?’ But with the help of past life readings, it is more clear that this happened for a reason, for me to learn.” Seemingly unrelated, he asked, “Have you ever seen Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade?” No, I had not seen it. But he told me about the story with the invisible bridge. He articulated the story, with a slight narrative arc, explaining that Indiana Jones had seen a clue that he would have to take a leap of faith at some point. Then Indiana Jones got to the edge of the clif and had discovered the invisible bridge. He then gathered dirt and sticks to cover that bridge so that he could see where he was stepping, in order to get where he was going.

I suppose that the man was implying I should take a leap of faith and choose to get a past life reading from this lady. I’m sure she was great, but my feeling or intuition was not telling me to choose her as my treat for the day. I wanted to be free and wander, and get to the next free lecture which was about transmutation. In the end though, I still got to hear this gem of a story from the older man. And of course being obsessed with the metaphysical, I automatically loved the way it could be thought of as a metaphor for life.

Today I heard the news that I was not accepted for the job position I interviewed for yesterday. Of course I felt a hit of despair and helplessness and confusion. I was all set and being-redirected-not-rejectedeager that I would leave my part time job and get a new one in the holistic field (which I still may, but I’m not feeling as rushed). Once I heard the news, I thought to myself; “this just means that it wasn’t meant to be, and better opportunities are awaiting to be co-created by me and the Universe.”

But I have been thinking about the notion of taking footsteps of faith. In the back of my mind, keeping that tip-toe of faith going steadily. Sneaking past those self-doubts and fears. On the continuous path of growth and expansion. I don’t have to drop everything and immediately quit my job and expect the invisible bridge to be that wide. I can take it slow and discover the bridge at my own pace. As I mentioned yesterday, the Flexible Akashic by Mary Faith has really given me a new boost of inspiration and unblocked any blockages that were in my energy body. I could definitely feel the difference in my throat chakra, and I am using my voice as an instrument for healing. I also went to Kundalini yoga at the Healing Arts Collective last night with Marilyn. I knew I wanted to keep that energy from Sunday flowing, to keep that high vibration. I could feel my hands tingling. At one point, I almost felt like I was having an orgasm! I think it may have been kundalini rising. I was also able to view visualizations at my third eye. I really feel like these things give me a natural high, and they are very healthy as well! One interesting thing that Marilyn mentioned was that we hold generational memories in our spine. So that’s why we do so much spinal flexing and stretching in kundalini! We ended the class with the meditation Ang Sang Wahe Guru. I always love singing in class. This time, I wanted to practice freeing my complete voice and singing from the heart, so I mentally brought myself back to the way I felt the day before, driving home from the MUM Expo. I pretended I was in that car alone, not giving a poop what anyone else thought in the other cars driving by or in the class surrounding me. Anyway, I say thank you to the experience of being declined for the position, because it sparked me to really envision and start planning what I do want. Thank you! ❤

“The one that opened the door…”

I love my life. I love my voice. I love the trees. I love my body. My body is the gateway to my soul. Yes, I am a spiritual being having a human experience, but my body is sacred.

I went to the MUM (Metaphysical Universal Ministries) Expo yesterday in Allentown, PA.

I had a wonderful time floating from place to space and back to Earth. It is funny how much I used to think that the world outside of me was separate from myself, and also therefore could control or limit me from anything being possible.

Themes of the Day:

  1. “Your imagination is reality in Heaven”- David Young
  2. “By taking care of yourself, you can take care of everything else in the cosmos.”-Rachel Ginther
  3. “Whereby You, in remembering the Love, Create a thread of vibration, Which is the DNA, and shifts the physical bodies into the newer possibilities.”-Mary Faith Rhoads

Sa Ra Key

Many people, including Chas of Third Eye Hypnosis, commented on my Sa Ra Key necklace, which can be found here. I felt so lucky to be surrounded by people who understand me, and better yet praise and empower me. The more and more I surround myself with people that are interested in raising their vibration, the more I can grow and expand my vibration as well! Chas and I traded brief energy work on each other, I showed him my Otto tuning fork with the Amethyst foot, and tuning forks and he gave me some Reconnective Healing. I had been curious about Reconnective Healing and I finally got to feel it! I told him that initially, the cost of their programs pushed me away, but he told me that I could still buy the book and feel the energy on my own. I loved the way that he shared energy and information with me so freely. I eventually told him, “Maybe we were supposed to have met.” He said, “That’s the way it goes, right?”.

Jumping to the present moment (the day after the Expo), I am sitting in my office at the call center. It is important to have patience and remember that things may take longer in the physical realm than in the spiritual realm. But opening my crown chakra and third eye and having an Akashic record healing allows me to feel and “see” that life is beautiful and sacred, and that there are good and magical things coming to me on my path. It also allows me to create this life for myself. As I went outside to purchase a falafel sandwich from the Gyro cart, I looked in to the man’s eyes and thought about his soul. I smiled but didn’t say too much. I am very grateful that he was able to make that sandwich for me for only $4! I sat and watched the people walking down the street, and noticed the expressions on their faces. Most of them were serious, listening to headphones or talking. I thought about the resistance and fear that I face from family and friends about this new life path I am on. But I can have compassion because there was a time when I was afraid or skeptical about reiki. Once I felt it, I knew it was powerful for me, but it works with subtle energy or chi that is omnipresent, and can feel good as long as you allow it to flow. I thought back to the time when I gave the reiki session to the man with “No Goals” that “didn’t feel anything”. An idea popped into my head to use simple hypnosis techniques to guide people into a reiki session. I’m sure many people do this already! But I would love to find my own way to do this.

During David Young’s sound session, he guided us into a visualization by starting with visualizing familiar objects like cards. He said, “Visualize the King of Spades, now the Queen of Hearts, now the Jack of Diamonds, now the King of Clubs…” And he explained that “the imagination is reality in Heaven” or basically the gateway to the Divine. He explained that when we are born, we are still very connected to Source and Heaven. That’s why many children have “imaginary friends”. But eventually the parents and teachers say do not talk about that, or to be quiet and pay attention in school! Imagine if it was normal and not frowned upon to day dream in school, and kids had the freedom to create and bring dreams to reality. Of course it is still an important skill to be able to pay attention when necessary, but if only we could allow more time for the imagination to flourish. During my sound journey yesterday, I was able to have visualizations, as well as
thoughts from my regular mind. I reminisced on the dym101times when my friends and I would give puppet shows in my back yard. I remember practicing for the shows, creating the characters and story lines in my head. And I even remembered having imaginary friends. I started crying at the realization that I they may have been real beings from a different dimension. And that I can learn to connect with guides in my life today. I also noticed a theme in my own healing process. I know that tears are healing, but sometimes I hold back my tears in fear that it is negative or sad, or that I look too vulnerable or it will bring other people down. So this time I simply put my scarf over my head to allow for some extra privacy. Anyway, I highly recommend David Young’s music, and the way he guided us into the journey was very humble and genuine. You can find David Young’s relaxing music here!

At the end of the day, after attending the lecture with Rachel Ginther of Garden of One, I realized that it would be a good thing to spend money on myself. As a healer, I needed to fill up my cup so that I can serve others. She spoke about a brilliant Fire Ritual for Transgenerational Healing as well as another one for Transmutation and Co-Creation. I haven’t done them yet, but I do plan to. Here is a simple one:

Make one handwritten copy of the bolded Invocation below. Write what you want to release. Complete the ritual with the rest of the bolded text. Sign and date your paper. Read Aloud and Burn!

In the Name of I Am that I Am, I release this to the Universe to be transmuted by the Violet Flame and it is no longer mine.

{Write what you want to release}

Let this be Transmuted Now! Almighty I Am! Almighty I Am! Almighty I Am!

While there may be certain contracts or life paths that we are on, or have chosen before entering this world, there is always the power of choice. The power to transform and expand. I find Akashic healers to be of great help with this. I saw a booth with a didgeridoo on the table, and the sign read;

Remembering that we each are SPIRIT Manifest as Physical, Remembering that we each have agreed to participate here in UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, Remembering the ONENESS that we each are. 

I saw that one of the didgeridoo’s was priced at only $35, and I came closer and asked how

much it would be for a healing session. She said that it was pay what you wish. I exclaimed “Are you serious?!” Once I decided it was time to treat myself, the Universe was there to support me. I asked how the session would go and laid on my back, covering my eyes once again with my favorite scarf. I did not have as many visualizations as I did during the David Young journey. My mind was still in regular mode. But I could definitely feel the energy shifts happening in my body. She described that she would be shaking up the rug of my life, breaking threads that may have once been useful but were no longer needed and making way for newer and more important threads to go stronger. After the session, I played the didge and she was so happy to see someone play it! She said I was the first person all weekend that was able to play it! She also encourage me to try the beautiful glass didgeridoo with painted designs. I was hesitant to try it because I could only imagine what the price would be, but she handed it to me. I played and I felt that I was translating the vibrations of my soul freely. I want to feel like this all of the time! Of course as Dante at the Sacred Cacao Ceremony mentioned, there may be highs and lows, but if you think back to your highs 5 years ago, they are probably equivalent to your modern lows. This is all a part of the process of expansion.

Love & Light,

Victoria
