Imaginary Friends & Spirit Guides

 

Hello Mystical Creatures,

My heart sings out to you, and I acknowledge you for making the journey to live here on planet Earth.

Life is magical.

My intention for writing these words is for you to feel a sense of deep relaxation, connection, and love.

As I type this, I am connecting to my spirit guides, and the Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones of the Akashic Records.

I ask you now to envision if you had an imaginary friend, what would they look like?

Even if you don’t see anything right now, you can still feel the presence of the light beings, guardian angels and loved ones surrounding you. I have been inspired by the notion of imaginary friends that we had when we were young, and the connection to spirit guides that we see as adults, and seeing how they are interconnected. If you have any insight or ideas about this, I would love to see your comment below!

When we are young, we know that we are all God’s children and we are connected to Source. If you feel triggered or put off by the word God, I understand. But maybe you still feel that there is something greater than yourself, like a web of energy that connects everything in existence, in the entire Universe together.

If you want to know for yourself, that you are an infinite being, it is very possible. The flexible Akasha is your playground, and there are infinite paths for you to arrive at that realization.

Of course, places like Burning Man and transformational festivals are nests for learning and connecting to the infinite. But the key is to take what we’ve learned and find ways to create sacred space in everyday life.

How can we do this?

Of course, meditation, Kundalini yoga, Ayahuasca ceremonies, playing in nature and finding like minded friends are all great ideas. As they say, your vibe attracts your tribe. Opening your Akashic Records or giving yourself Reiki while floating in a float tank is also a great way to connect with your own Divinity, Higher Self and soul’s purpose on Earth. Halcyon Floats is one of my favorite places to go when I want to feel a sense of Heaven on Earth. If you live in Philadelphia, or truly anywhere, and want to create safe spaces for healing, understanding, conscious community, transformation, I am whispering to you!

Through practice and patience, you can become a Reiki Master and what that means is that you master your own energy. The third level of Reiki (Reiki Master) is also called Shinpiden or “mystery teaching” which has been said to explore the mystery of God’s love.

If you are an empath, introvert, or highly sensitive person, I can relate to you! As a sensitive person, I feel that Reiki is and has been a great path and tool for navigating the waters of life. So if you feel excited, or inspired there are a few steps you can take. You can get personal guidance and healing with me 1 on 1 in a private session at Learn Reiki Philadelphia or the Healing Arts Collective. Or you can begin your Reiki journey by deciding to take a Holy Fire Reiki class with me (message me for more details). Or you can come out to the next Reiki Share at Healing Arts Collective on July 25th, to meet me and get a taste of what Reiki is like. So, with that being said, I thank you for taking the time to read this message and I am sending you love and healing energy right now!

 

Sincerely,

Victoria

Real Life Magic

“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

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.

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

 

 

 

 

Struggle

“When a butterfly is ready to emerge from its chrysalis, it chews a tiny hole in one end and forces its stunning new form through the small orifice.

Within this “struggle” of emergence, liquids from deep inside the butterfly’s body are passed into the capillaries of its wings, then harden, to ensure the strength and capability required for a butterfly to survive and fly.

When denied of this “struggle”, the butterfly dies.

When you are struggling, rest easy in the understanding that you are a warrioress, dedicated to the ripened rewards of a proper initiation.” -excerpt from Miss Ascentia 2010

Before I even left for Burning Man I was already preparing for the “decompression” that I had previously heard about. I planned to stay an extra night in San Francisco before flying home. I stayed one night at the Green Tortoise hostel where I was welcomed by a fellow burner. “Welcome back to the world we don’t want to live in,” she said. I nodded with a begrudging smile to show my empathy, but deep down, I felt excited to be back in the real world. Of course, I had a life transforming experience and I knew I would be counting down the days until my next opportunity to gather in community. But I was also excited to “make my life more like Burning Man”~ inspired by the article “5 Ways to Make Your Life More Like Burning Man“. I must have loved my trip so much that I missed my flight home from the Oakland airport. Luckily the Spirit Airlines agent booked me a free flight for the next day, but I still had to find a place to stay that evening. Looking in my bank account, I felt a bit hopeless, but I also felt very abundant at the same time. Being on the playa, I truly felt the expression “The playa provides”. Being in a healing camp and gifting out 4 hours of healing sessions every day was very fulfilling. Since Black Rock City is a city, I treated my position sort of like a job, (but way more fun!) because there was much more freedom than what is expected in the “default” world. There are still rules in Black Rock City and in my camp, as well as guidelines for healing~ like don’t be naked but you can be topless. And the amount of healing that I was there to support was a great practice for me, and showed me what my real life could look like. Not having to worry too much about time or money made everything flow. I gave out my energy in sessions, and then was ready to receive whatever the playa had to offer. It was nice to not have to worry about money in BRC, but it also transformed my relationship with money in the real world, (which I am always working on improving). I used to feel hesitant or nervous about charging money for my healing sessions. But now I realize that money is just energy. And doing my life’s work will create more abundance in the long run.
