Elaborate Akash

Elaborate

“It is a complete truth that you are absolute perfection in the eyes of the Divine and are loved unconditionally.”- Divine message from Susan Suehr.

Allow me to elaborate;

develop or present (a theory) in detail.
Right now, I am sitting on Drexel’s campus, just observing and reflecting. And feeling grateful for how much I’ve learned, grown and changed since graduating almost three years ago. One of the ways I’ve changed is by learning and growing into this deep truth which Susan shared! If more people knew they were loved unconditionally, imagine what the world would be like!   Sitting here, reflecting back on being the starry eyed college me, I remember comparing myself to others, wanting to fit in, and holding back my true self in fear of what others may think. I have no regrets, and I’m very grateful for where I am today! I’ve grown so much, and the process of blossoming continues!
Especially with the help of the Akashic Records, I am learning more and more to trust…
Trust in my guides, my inner guidance, and my Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones. I am learning to trust in Divine Order, and allow myself to be guided. Is there a Divine Plan? Did my soul create my life’s path before I was born? I choose to believe in Free Will, and what I’ve learned from studying the Akashic Records supports this belief as well. But… that doesn’t mean that my soul used its own “Free Will” to make some choices about my life path before I was born! This idea intrigues me. Dolores Cannon says that  when we are “up there”, in between lives, our souls work with our Masters Teachers and Loved Ones to make choices about how we are going to come back in the next life. Of course karma, choices, or other events from past lives may affect present life circumstances as well.
Sooo… Does this mean our lives are just elaborate stories, pre-written by our soul’s before birth?
 
e·lab·o·rate
adjective
əˈlab(ə)rət/
  1. involving many carefully arranged parts or details; detailed and complicated in design and planning.

Well, the great news is that- I believe- each person has the full potential to create the life of their dreams, no matter their circumstances! An idea I learned from Christie Marie Sheldon is, everyone can achieve their dreams… the soul would not have created those dreams for you if you weren’t meant to live them! In other words, if the soul can dream it, it is possible. In each moment, we have the potential to make a new choice, which could lead our lives into a completely different direction. There are infinite possibilities. But I sort of feel, that there is a path (for each of us) that will bring us higher alignment with our soul’s purpose, if we follow the breadcrumbs of excitement and bliss in each moment. Meaning we could choose to deny our soul’s calling to be a public speaker, and hide away as a hermit, all the while knowing we are denying something. This would be free will at play. (That’s not to say someone’s soul purpose could never be a hermit existence filled with peace and solitude).

But what about… before the beginning of the beginning, before our soul was born? Maybe that’s a whole ‘nother story^

Does destiny exist? Does fate exist? Can destiny and free will co-exist? (Comment below with thoughts!)

Welcome to the ever wandering mind of Victoria. Now you have a taste of what it’s like to be in my brain 24-7. I do believe in the Big Bang, as I mentioned in my last post. Other than that, I am still on a journey of learning, philosophizing and theorizing, and I can’t say I know for sure. But deep down my Infinite Self knows the Truth. And the main Truth which is most important to integrate right now is that we are All Love! Everything is Love and Love is All That Is. There is no such thing as punishment from God. Because there is a piece of God, Divine Spark in each of us.

Grounding back into the present moment… It is vital that we practice self-love (from the heart) and practice compassion (as the new compass) on the path to self-realization and remembering.

P.S. I’m sorry for the pronoun shifts half way through! I hope I didn’t confuse I/you/me/we too much! We are All One anyway right? lol

Quantum Reality

There is a quantum phenomenon which seems to run counter to common sense, or else that tells us that common sense is not really the way the world works. The reality of this phenomenon has been established experimentally, notably by the French team of Alain Aspect, in 1983.

One experiment demonstrating quantum non-locality involves atoms of calcium that are put into an unstable energy state so that they emit a pair of identical photons traveling in opposite directions at the speed of light.

Since they are both moving apart at the speed of light, their velocities add, so they are actually separating at twice the speed of light. Modern technology allows us to track the behavior of these two photons as they move apart.

The behavior seems very strange. As one of the photons passes through a polarizer that changes a property called spin, the spin of the other photon changes also.The first photon appears to send its twin a message describing what happened to it, no matter how far away they are from each other or how fast they are separating.

Since relativity theory does not allow for any kind of message that is faster than the speed of light, one can only conclude that there are some means of instantaneous communication between the two photons that were once together in the original calcium atom.
.

EINSTEIN`S SPOOKY DESCRIPTION 
Einstein called this “spooky action at a distance.” It is as though the separation of the particles is an illusion—once particles are paired they will always be paired.

Since all matter in the universe was once gathered together in one place, before the big bang, all matter in the universe continues to be in relation to all other matter.

-James L. Oschman, Ph.D

Extract from Science and The Human Energy Field

The first time I had heard of this experiment was through a video of a lecture given by Gregg Braden. I had already experienced the proof and benefits of Distance Reiki, without understanding how it really worked. Finding out about this experiment gave me a new perspective and insight into how I could explain Distance Reiki to others in a new and exciting way.

If you go to 1 hour and 5 minutes in, Gregg talks about the science experiment mentioned earlier.

What’s so mystical about the Statue of Liberty? How Reiki leads to greater visionary abilities.

I was participating as a vendor of Reiki and Sound healing at the recent Spiritual Awakening Expo in Bordentown, NJ.

I was running a bit late and felt a bit flustered as I was checking in and setting up for the day. But also filled with excitement about what the day would bring, and what types of spiritual people I would meet.

So, recently during my sessions, I am beginning to see images more and more. Some people may call this Clairvoyance.

At the expo, I am about to give a Reiki session to a woman that seems to be around my age. She is beautiful and has brown hair cut to around her neck. She has never had reiki before, but she has been told that it’s something she needs to learn.

So during the session, I will usually close my eyes. And sometimes I will focus my attention on my third eye region. This brings me into a meditative state and allows me to use my intuition to sense what is going on within the client, whether it be mind, body, spirit or a combination (since everything is connected anyway!).

 

So, I will be honest, I am a work in progress, (aren’t we all?), and in my current state, there are still times where I will have the fear of saying something totally out of the ballpark. For example, “I’m seeing an orange cat, do you have any cats?”, and the client replies, “No… I’m not sure”. I also sometimes have the fear or worry, with some pieces of information, that it’s just something I made up in my imagination, (image-machine) or mind. So being able to more clearly determine which messages or pieces of information are coming from my intuition (a true Divine message), or are something from my own consciousness, is something I would like to work on.

But honestly, it’s all ok! Usually, when I say something that I saw, for example, “I was seeing giraffes”. The client may just say ok, hm… It could symbolize something or it could just be something that doesn’t mean much to them.

On the other hand, there are times, where the image or vision is so strong, that I know it is not coming from me. With the client on Saturday at the Expo, I placed my hands on to the top of her head, allowing the gentle Reiki energy to flow through. And a few minutes into the session, I began seeing the image of the Statue of Liberty in my mind’s eye. I thought wow, where did that come from? It’s not like I had been thinking of the Statue of Liberty or visited it recently. This is one of those moments where I had the initial fear, “Should I say something? What if it means nothing and disrupts the flow of the session?”. But as I mentioned, the image was so strong that I just took a shot and told her what I saw at that moment. She laughed… paused…

And replied, “A mystic recently told me that I need to visit the Statue of Liberty.”

AHH!

An amazing message from Spirit, being delivered through the Quantum Field through me. So, I just verified what the other mystic said. But it felt pretty cool! I went on to continue the session, bringing and allowing her to bring more Light into her body and energy field through Reiki. After the session, I asked her how she felt, and she replied that she felt very good and relaxed. She went on to say that the mystic told her that the Statue of Liberty was made of a certain metal that would be beneficial to be around. Interesting! If anyone reading this knows any other mystical secrets about the Statue of Liberty, comment below!

I am so grateful for these mystical experiences. I want to continue growing so that I can become even stronger in my visionary abilities. And to be an open channel for the highest healing energy, surrendering and trusting so that this can flow through me.

What are three ways we can strengthen the third eye?

1. Nourish the pineal gland

Sugar, Caffeine, Alcohol and Tobacco (S.C.A.T.): A diet free of these will not only flush the system, but it will also bring about your inner energy or “Chi” and allow you to have a more balanced mind/body. The longer you avoid these the better, but it must be for at least two months to help the pineal gland. –The Art of Unity.com

Again, I will admit, I’m not perfect and so I still have sugar and caffeine (occasionally) in my diet. But this is a reminder for me to start now! By eliminating as much sugar and caffeine as possible. I say this because I know I do feel better when I live this lifestyle. I love cacao as a morning drink, which is a great alternative to coffee. Also, I love fruit! So I don’t think that healthy amounts of fruit are bad for the pineal gland. I think he is referring to cane sugar. As for alcohol, I have found in my current lifestyle, it is best for me to avoid. And as for Tobacco, I do believe it can be used as a sacred tool/ ritual, such as rapé, which in my experience actually made me feel more clear. But I’m not sure I would want to do it every day. This is just my preference, but see what works for you!

2. Meditate

Meditation is the world’s most potent and effective third eye opening, awakening, and decalcification tool. –EOCInstitute.org

In the quote above, I’m not sure how meditation directly decalcifies the pineal gland, but I know that it does assist with “third eye opening” and awakening. There is so much research coming out these days on how meditation affects the brain. All of the effects are positive! One of the recent facts that I learned while listening to the Meditation Masterclass from Mindvalley with Vishen Lakhiani and Emily Fletcher was that meditation strengthens the corpus callosum (a broad band of nerve fibers joining the two hemispheres of the brain), therefore strengthening and balancing the two hemispheres of the brain.

3. Learn Reiki! and Practice

Grandma Loves Reiki!

This morning I gave my Grandma a Reiki session. It was beautiful!

29595113_878073075650899_5296623159770270754_n
Did you know that your grandmother carried part of you inside her womb? 
But how? 
Well, a female fetus is born with all the eggs she will ever have in her lifetime. So when your Grandmother was carrying your Mother in her womb, you were a tiny egg in your Mother’s ovaries. The three of you have been connected for a very long time. Women are amazing!- Photo from Australian Breastfeeding Project

I saw this image on Facebook a few days ago, and it really inspired me to connect and send love and healing energy to my Grandma. I didn’t really realize or think about the fact that I (my body at least) was an egg inside of my Mother’s ovaries when she was in my Grandmother’s womb! My grandma is going through a difficult time, which affects my Mom, which then affects me. I would love to go into detail, but I still have a fear “what if someone from my family reads it”, or “what if it’s offensive to write details about my family”. Well, I suppose I will write what I feel most comfortable with from a place of honesty, truth, integrity, and love. Basically, she was in the hospital and is now in the assisted living home. I am wondering if she is nearing death since she is 90 years old. She may live 10 more years, I do not know as of right now, but I wish death (soul leaving the body) was something we could talk about in a more open light. Regardless, I want to help her and support her as much as I possibly can.

Today I feel that the session I gave her was really special. Recently I’ve been using a lot of guided visualization to assist in my sessions. I always ask people to imagine connecting to the light 300 feet above their head. This time, I asked her to imagine my Grandpa (her husband), and imagine him in a state of health and happiness. I asked her to envision him and to say Thank you, I’m Sorry, Please Forgive Me, I Love you, and to see him saying it back to her. This is along the lines of Ho’oponopono, the Hawaiian prayer for forgiveness. Here is a great YouTube video if you would like to try it for yourself! 7 Minute Ho’oponopono. Anyway, I could tell that my grandma felt relief when this process occurred between her and my Grandpa in Spirit. Next, I used this technique with my Grandma, which I’ve been using a lot recently with Reiki clients. This technique feels like Psychoalchemy to me.

The steps are:

  • Think of an issue you would like to have healed.
  • If this issue could be located somewhere in or around your body, where would it be located?
  • Imagine if the issue could have a shape or image depicting it, what would it look like?
  • Then, ask the shape if it has any messages for you?
  • Finally, send lots of love and healing energy to the shape and allow it to be let go of.

This is a great process to use to facilitate Mind-Body healing, and you can use it too! Experiment with a friend, or try it solo. I’ve been using it a lot because it worked for me.

I used it with my Grandma and felt it was a great success. I love Reiki because it is a form of Alternative healing that can complement all other medicines. The other thing I love about it is that I often feel good while giving it. Thank you, Reiki for being such an amazing joy in my life!

Kambo Healing Experience

My first Kambo session was amazing. The session I did was located at 8th Chakra Yoga Studio in Santa Ana, California. The ceremony was hosted by KamboHealingMe, and the practitioners Scott and Alex were brilliant at what they did. I felt so loved and cared for. I received all of the help and guidance that I felt like I needed. So you might be wondering, why did Victoria sign up to try a medicine that comes from the back of a frog in the Amazon. One of the answers is that I have always loved frogs and they were one of my favorite animals as a child, So I felt very called to try this medicine. I also love the idea of holistic healing through sacred medicines, and I believe in the tremendous power that they hold.

My intentions for healing which I stated in the ceremony were:

-Speak my truth and be myself.

-Teach Reiki.

-Heal my relationship with money and become debt free.

-Heal my sty.

So here is what the experience felt like. The kambo burns did not really hurt that much. Just a little prick feeling. Then they put the kambo, which is in a liquid form on there to be absorbed into the body. The practitioner said “Find your meditation, Align your chakras, Send love and gratitude to the medicine. Focus on your intention. Think about how it affects the lives of others.” So I did. I really connected to thinking about my Dad. And praying for healing for him. But I know that I can only heal myself, and maybe it can affect him through symbiosis. And being brave. I felt the warmth and heat come all over my body. I felt like I was being lifted. I felt the heat in my ear canals and around my ears. I had the thought “I give my life to God & And I surrender” But I was still having a hard time purging. It’s almost like I thought I would disturb others by doing so, even though everyone else had done it. I felt like I wanted to escape and go to the bathroom to poop it out. I asked one of the facilitators “Am I supposed to throw up?” He said, “95% of people do, Otherwise you poop it out.” One of the facilitators came over to me and said: “Let it out.” He said, “you can make yourself throw up if you need to.” He motioned his hands to his mouth in the way that you would make yourself gag. As I saw him do this I could feel the purge coming and ready to be released. The throw up came out! It was amazing and beautiful. Then I received Sananga. Scott said “It helps to heal any eye issues, Vision, Cataracs, And even a sty. The eyes are the window to your soul. ” So I laid on my back and they put it in my eyes. I squirmed a lot. This part felt a bit even more intense. I scrunched up but Alex and Scott came over and both helped me. I realized when I went out of my mind and stopped thinking so much I could surrender to this medicine. I saw and felt the color purple. My body was also shaking a lot. Especially my legs. But when I stopped resisting I stopped shaking. And eventually, within a few minutes, the intensity passed and I felt the healing and integration and calmness.

After we all came back from being in the medicine, Scott said “You basically just had surgery, so be gentle and notice what you consume; What you watch, listen to and thoughts you have. Challenge yourself to no caffeine, no sugar, no alcohol, no spicy food, no sex, and no drugs for at least 3 days.

The day after my first kambo session I did feel a bit tired and drained. I tried to replenish myself with healthy food and water. Then the day after that I felt extremely energized and healthy. I could feel myself craving only healthy foods and not craving other foods I used to eat like sugar or caffeine. I felt so energized upon waking up that I didn’t need caffeine. This burst of pure energy lasted for a week or so. But I still feel the healing benefits and true change from the experience. They recommend to do 3 sessions within one moon cycle, but I was only able to do one. I hope to do more within the next year. As for my intentions, I feel like it definitely helped to clear out my system so that I could be more in touch with my own intuition and manifesting skills. It works more on the physical level and is less psychoactive, although it was still a very spiritual experience for me. I could definitely feel that it helped to heal my stye. And it definitely empowered me with Reiki, as I went on to give Holy Fire Reiki to someone that was in the ceremony with me, directly afterward!

Thank you, Kambo Spirit. I love you! I highly recommend Kambo to anyone who wishes to purify their energy and body, mind and soul. Check out the KamboHealingMe website here!  If you have any comments, insights or questions, I would love to hear your comments below!

Psychic & Healing Expo Contest Image


2018 is the Year of Abundance for me, and it can be for you too!

I know there can be so much to sift through on the internet these days, so I want to provide real Truth and experience from my heart to yours. I want to catch up and get back into writing from the space of freedom, vulnerability and no holding back that I used to. Even if the right 3 people read this, and feel positively affected or connected, that will be a step in the right direction. Or if 20 people read it, all the better!

 

So, I love to share my own healing journey and what I’ve discovered in the world of metaphysical, magical, new age spirituality, and alternative, holistic medicine. To me, it is all related and all a part of my own integrated journey. I met a man that I was very attracted to, and I did love him. After he said he just wanted to be friends, I felt very upset and “heartbroken”. But I soon realized this was an opportunity for major healing! An opportunity to become more whole and love me more. I actually felt some physical pain in my neck and shoulders from this instance, which he was actually able to pick up on because he is empathic too. Luckily, he was willing to help me to let go and release this pain and these thoughts of him from my energy field, by helping me to transmute it with the violet flame. At the time it felt hard, but looking back, I am really grateful for him being an amazing soul. It’s not like I didn’t still think of him after that, but I was definitely able to let go of the immediate pain & suffering.

I have also been grateful for the rise of Ecstatic Dance here in Philly. It is a great opportunity for healing through conscious dance practice. I will admit, I had a few fears the first time I went, and even the second. The space provided is intended to be and truly feels judgment free. But still, thoughts crept in about how will I move my body and what will people think of me. Anyway, it is an ongoing practice and I’m so grateful for it!

I was also very blessed to attend the Ancient Voices retreat in Hawaii in February with Aya Iwasaki and Ayla Nereo. We spent so many days “leaning into our edges” and doing things that may scare us but feel good immediately after, like singing our name into a circle of 40+ people! My intention for opening up my voice and singing is to use it for healing. The retreat definitely helped me with that intention! Just Wednesday night, I used a tuning fork and toned the chakra sounds with a client. I will write more about this soon! But for now, I am very grateful for the boost and experience I have had from this retreat!

Gratitude!

Today, I am grateful for SO many things. To make it easier, I have written a list of 10 things I’m grateful for:

1. The amazing spiritual teachers that have taught me and helped me along my journey to come to where I am today. Including 📿🌈Dante Singh 🌈📿.

2. The town I was born in, Media, PA which is “America’s First Fair Trade Town”.🙏

3. The exhilarating spiritual expos that I have attended, especially the Mind, Body Spirit Expo in 2015 where I had my first 🔮Akashic Energy Healing Experience.🎆

4. Burning Man! I went to BM in 2016, and it was a place where I felt like I could truly be myself. 👅👽😇🐸🌬I even had a mystical experience with the Ascended Master Babaji.🙏

WhatsApp Image 2017-11-12 at 12.03.07 AM

5.💸These two teachers, Jillian Anderson and Christie Marie Sheldon, which teach courses on connecting spirituality with creating a life of prosperity and abundance!💸I highly recommend the course Permission to Prosper (which is catered towards Goddesses), and Unlimited Abundance which is for all beings!💸
6. Kombucha! It’s seriously one of my favorite drinks, and I feel that it uplifts me each time I drink it❕

IMG_6782
From 10/1 to 12/31, GT’s Kombucha is asking the community to help sow seeds of gratitude by sharing a photo of the Living in Gratitude bottle on social media with #LivingInGratitude and tagging @GTsKombucha. For each post, they are committed to providing 10 meals to those in need – up to 500,000 meals.

7. My family… Sometimes I feel like the Black Sheep of the family. Sometimes I wonder, why can’t all of my family members be spiritual healers? And sometimes I wish they were more like-minded to me. But, when I zoom out and look from a higher perspective, I appreciate the love and care they give me, as well as the contrast & opportunity to expand into my TRUE SELF that they give to me. The opportunity to express myself to those that may have a different viewpoint. I am on my own path and I trust that!

 
8. 💸🤑💸Money! Yes, I use the word money because I’m consistently creating my Love Love relationship with money and currency!⚡(and Bitcoin in the future). If you’re curious about Bitcoin and other digital currencies, you can join Coinbase, the world’s most popular way to buy and sell bitcoin, ethereum, and litecoin, using my invitation link here.⚡

 
9. 🌎🌍🌏I’m grateful that I have had the chance to travel to Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. I’m grateful that one day I may be able to travel to Antarctica and Australia. 🌏🌍🌎

 
10. I’m grateful for live music (especially electronic & healing music), and the power it has to bring people together for a shared experience. 🍯❤💛💚💙💜🎶 Some of my current favorites are Deya Dova, Lum, and Source Vibrations. 👁

 

New Moon in Leo; Radical Self-Expression

Hello & Happy New Moon in Leo Everyone!

My name is Victoria and I am excited to continue my journey here on Mother Earth.
I am from Media, PA, and I have also lived in Philadelphia, PA. I also love to travel and one of my favorite places to travel to is California. I hope to move to the SF Bay Area within the next year as there are two Sound Healing schools I am interested in. ( CIIS Sound, Voice, and Music Healing Certificate Program & Globe Institute – Sound and Consciousness Program)

I am an Usui/ Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher & Sound Healer and I practice at two locations in Philadelphia. Reiki By Victoria is my facebook page. I also am practicing my skills for doing Readings and Healing in the Akashic Records. I was grateful to give a presentation called How To Raise Your Vibration with Reiki and Sound at a festival called Gratitude Migration last weekend.

I am also very interested in Sacred Plant Medicines, and the potential for using Psychedelic Medicines in Psychotherapy. I attended the Psychedelic Science Conference hosted by MAPS in Oakland in April.

I have always been inspired to help the world and aim for world peace. My hometown, Media, PA is “America’s First Fair Trade Town”, so in high school, I was a part of the town’s Fair Trade Committee and also worked to make my high school meet the requirements to become a Fair Trade High School. I went to Drexel University to study Music Industry, and when I was a senior, I received my first Akashic healing and began to learn Reiki. I started to realize that in order to heal the world we must first heal ourselves.
But of course, I am still interested in being a conscious consumer and possibly joining these two aspects of my work together. I am interested in B Corporations and becoming an Impact Investor. I currently use the apps Acorns and Stash to Invest.
I am also currently searching for a new job to help support me as I continue to grow my own healing practice. All within the new paradigm of ease, pleasure, and flow.

My goals are to change/heal and improve my relationship with money. I am very inspired by Jillian Anderson because I also used to and maybe do still have a few inner conflicts about having money and being spiritual. I want to be financially abundant and stable so that I can live independently. My vision for myself is to become a well-known and well-respected expert in the field of Sound Healing. I will be creating recordings and videos and live therapeutic sound healing performances.

Thank you for being alive on the planet with me!

Sincerely,
Victoria Kae Powell

 

Why are we here?

When I was younger, I remember asking questions like, “If God exists, why do bad things happen on the planet?” And this is something that I still inquire about, although I do have an updated understanding and viewpoint based on my experiences since that time. Whatever name you want to call it, I have heard many accounts of this “place” that people go during Near Death Experiences.

A near-death experience (NDE) refers to personal experiences associated with impending death, encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light.- AnitaMoorjani.com

If Heaven and Angels and all of these higher dimensional realms exist, then why don’t we just stay in Heaven, or this place that people go to during their NDE’s. I’m not sure “Heaven” is the right word, because of the human conceptions attached to it. But there is this place that has been talked about and I’m sure that you have felt the sense that something exists beyond this space-time continuum.

A recent episode of the Duncan Trussell Family Hour podcast features Dr. Raymond Moody; philosopher, psychologist, physician, and author, most widely known for his books about life after death and near-death experiences, a term that he coined in 1975.

As they were discussing the various cases of Near Death Experiences, some of the cases involved people describing being given the choice whether to stay in this heavenly experience or come back to their life on Earth. And most of them chose to come back.

So why would they choose that? Why are we really here when we could be floating in eternal heavenly bliss?

In the process of thinking through these questions, Dr. Raymond Moody brought up a quote; “God made man because he loves stories”- Elie Wiesel. In my version of the quote, it would probably be “God made humans because God/Source loves stories.” And if you think about it, what is your life but your story?

Then Duncan replied, “I love the idea, ok well God loves stories…and that’s beautiful… but then you’re like, ok God well how about you don’t get me to write the story about being in Auschwitz… how about you get me to write the story about being a wealthy prince with harem who becomes Buddha or something.” Coming back to this question of Why God why? Why do bad things happen to seemingly good people all of the time?

(At around 58 minutes) Raymond asked Duncan; “Let’s assume that tomorrow you went to the doctor and they diagnosed you with some terrible illness, not a fatal illness but some terrible infection that required for you to be isolated on a desert island all by yourself for 10 years. And they could take you out there in a cargo plane with all of the food and water and medicine you were going to need for 10 years. And there was room on the cargo plane for a DVD player and 2,000 DVDs. Now, let me ask you, would you choose all comedies??”

“No”

“Would you choose some tragedies too?”

“Sure, yes”

“When you were watching the tragedy on that desert island would you be crying?”

“Yea, probably!”

“There you go”

I just wanted to put this out there as it’s been an anecdote that has inspired me to be more accepting and understanding of my current life situation and story. There is no doubt that everyone living this human experience will go through times of joy and times of pain. And I realized that my response to the hypothetical situation of being on a desert island and choosing to bring not only comedy DVDs but also tragedies would probably be the same as Duncan’s. In my daily life, I tend to focus on the positive and avoid anything negative because I know that what I think about and surround myself with, will affect my vibration and consciousness and will ultimately be co-created in my reality. But I also know that I have pain and what’s better than ignoring it is finding ways to express it. Movies and music are great ways to be moved to let out my tears and emotions. After I cry, I often feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.

So this has really gotten me to look at my own story subjectively, and realize that the ups and downs are all a part of the oscillation of Source or God’s or even my Higher Self’s plan for my life. Because I also believe (although it’s hard to believe it some days), that I chose to come here and possibly even chose my family that I was born into. But the good news is that we are constantly presented with opportunities to make choices. From the minute we wake up in the morning to the second we go to sleep at night, we can choose to meditate or sing or go hug a tree, or if we are stuck in an office or a prison or a subway car, we can choose our thoughts and our vibrations. And even after we go to sleep, we could choose to explore the world of Lucid Dreaming, which I am becoming increasingly more interested in.

SO, my suggestion to you is to take a deep breath and go drink some Mugwort tea (which has been said to be good for lucid dreaming) and watch this video of Hang Massive playing the Hang:

Unlimited Abundance Success Story

So I have been tuning into the Unlimited Abundance program with Christie Marie Sheldon.

There are 24 common abundance blocks that Christie helps people to release or “delete, uncreate, and ‘destory’ across all time, space dimension and reality.” She has inspired me immensely from the first time I heard her voice. So I decided to purchase the Unlimited Abundance program and listening and re-listening to all of the recordings of the live group sessions. I can’t say I’ve hit my ultimate goal of where I want to be financially yet, but this program has definitely helped me to shift my mindset, which is setting the foundation for my future abundance. And I have already begun to see some of the fruits…

So the story goes:

I am working at Coda for a private Superbowl Party.

I remember having the thought, or visualization of someone handing me a 100 dollar bill as a tip- at one of my jobs. Maybe even this event specifically.

A man coming to get his jacket comes up and asks me “do you have change for a $100?”

I counted what I had in the tip jar and it was $55. He gave me the $100 and said keep the rest! So it wasn’t a $100 tip technically, but the thought/vision still came true in a way. So, $45 is a great tip for one coat! Then after that, I started racking in the $5s. Which was better than the usual $1 tips I get.


To give you a taste of what I have been learning, some of the key points that Christie explains are:

Money is a neutral tool that can be used in different ways, and for different things in life. It is not good or bad, but it depends on what you do with it!

Having a plan is a good idea– to get you moving in the right direction– but not to be stuck or dead-set on the outcome. I recently bought The Inner Guide Planner for 2017 and it’s been helping me to gain clarity!

One of the modules “Clearing Indecision” also helped me greatly. It seems that for most of my life- Parents, Pre-School, Elementary school, High School Teachers, College Professors, bosses- have been authorities that I would look up to, try to please, and follow the rules and get good grades. But in reality, there is no right or wrong, and I am continuously learning to follow my intuition and inner guide.

Another thing she said was “There are wealthy and poor people in every profession- there are wealthy plumbers and poor plumbers, there are wealthy musicians and poor musicians.” One thing that many people ingrained into me was that “you can’t make money as a musician” which is just a negative detrimental belief. It is one thing to want fame at the level of Lady Gaga, but it is another thing to have a healthy, abundant life, affording food and a nice place to live and be a performing artist or musician.

I would often question whether I was making the right decisions. Feeling stuck. She also says that Source or God loves you unconditionally. There are no mistakes!

Another topic that I have been exploring in my life lately is that of “Satan” or “The Devil”. In New Age, spiritual, energy worker lingo, many people talk about “entities”. So I wondered if these were somehow connected to the “Devil” I had heard about growing up. When I was younger, I hated haunted houses and hayrides, and I wouldn’t go near the Halloween mask aisle in stores. This may be because I was taught as a Christian to be afraid of the Devil and a place called “Hell”. I was attracted to the book Positive Magic by Marion Weinstein because I wanted to move forward in my exploration of fearlessness in this life, as well as in other dimensions. I’ve always had a feeling that everything is ultimately good and pure at the Source. And since I’ve begun this healing journey, I understand that Love is truly greater than fear. But this book helped give me some intellectual stimulation to support these newfound beliefs.

 

“Satan is a Western Piscean Age phenomenon. In earlier pagan times including Greek, Roman and Egyptian, the gods were neither all good nor all bad. They were glorified human and/or animalistic personalities with special powers and recognizable failings. Osiris, the main pagan god of the underworld, was both admirable and vulnerable, the underworld over which he presided was not a bad, judgemental place, in fact, before the Piscean Age there was no “hell” and no “purgatory”.

And since there was no one good external God, there was no one bad external Anti-God.

Really examining all of these old, maybe unconscious beliefs and thought-forms which formed in my childhood is a beneficial thing! So back to the topic of entities and spirit attachments. I do believe that these things exist, although I’m still learning exactly what they really are and how to better work to clear them. Sometimes I feel that they can even just be lower emotions and thought forms that need to be released. Or maybe more that I have yet to learn. Here is one useful article from Reiki.org:  Understanding and Releasing Spirit Attachments

Alexis Petrin has also been a part of this recent burst of inspiration in the direction of living my dreams and abundance in the present moment.

All Those “Shoulds”.
All of those “shoulds” 
   vanished
when I finally heard
    the sound
 of my own 
VOICE

-Alexis Petrin,  TheMessyMasterpiece.com

When I arrived at the Supernova Soiree; Sacred Voice Activation edition, there was a piece of paper that said “I WANT-” at the top. She told us to write down whatever we wanted, no matter if we thought it sounded impossible or if we had no idea how it could possibly come true. She explained that the only thing stopping these things from popping into your reality is that you haven’t yet claimed them yet. Once you claim it, it’s yours.

The first thing on my list was “To move to California.” This is something that I’ve wanted to do for years! Back in middle school, obsessed with skaters and people in bands, knowing that California was ‘the place to be’, shopping at Hollister, watching the Hills and Laguna Beach, I dreamed of living in sunny California where you could ski and go to the beach in the same month.

Now, I want to go there for many new and different reasons overall, but the long-held desire is still there. The hub of “transformational” & conscious music festivals like Lucidity, Symbiosis, Oregon Eclipse, Burning Man. My dream school for my Master’s Degree- California Institute of Integral Studies. The MAPS headquarters. Esalen. Joshua Tree and Mount Shasta. Many eco-villages. I am not even dead set on living in the state of California, but I know I feel called to move out west one day, to be in closer proximity to these things that spark my “breadcrumb trail of excitement” as Bentinho Massaro would say.

 

I came across this video Abundance & Relationship to Money: From Hippie to Happy – Bentinho Massaro which features the magical Dante. (Who, by the way, is hosting an upcoming Cacao Spirit Channeling Immersion in Philadelphia) And I can really relate to some of the things he went through with money. I especially loved the explanation of “hippies” being on the high horse because they are better than the rest of society, but down in the dirt because they are above money and other regular necessities. I really feel that I want to make a difference in the world, and sometimes that I am ‘different’ from most people, and feel like an outsider at times. I know that I truly want to live an abundant life of eating fruit and healthy raw vegan food every day, but sometimes I have these beliefs that creep in saying that I will be taking food away from others if I get to have all of the fruit I want-Since I don’t even live in an area where fruit is grown. I sometimes feel like, why do I deserve abundance when people are starving? Can anyone relate to this? Or have any advice to convince me that there is true abundance available to all people on Earth? (If so, Comment below!)

But I also feel the great beauty of all of life. And I know that the more I can tap into the frequency of abundance myself, the more joy, love, and abundance I can spread to others I meet along my journey.

Thank you and I hope to see you soon!

Love & Light,

Victoria
