Life is the real Spiritual Teacher

I can read as many spiritual texts as I want, and attend as many classes and seminars as I can, but nothing beats the lessons learned from living life and expanding my consciousness.

“The play of opposites produces beauty

The difficult times and the difficult challenges and the difficult people; they are not all to be frowned at and to be frustrated with. They do not specifically exist to cause you to not be happy and free.

More often than not, the things that you find really enchanting and creative and that touch you in a deep place, you’ll find that those things came to exist by way of the difficulties caused by frustrations and challenges.

When it is daytime we do the things that daytime calls for. We make use of the daylight to the best of our ability and sometimes we take the time to do nothing but to sit back and relax in the warmth and beauty of the sunlight.

When the nighttime comes, we use that time for rest and also for recreation. Sometimes we sit outside and enjoy the breeze and we look up at the sky where we see the stars twinkling, and we see the moon being true to itself as it is in that moment. Sometimes it is a half moon or a crescent, and sometimes it is a full moon; the look of which leaves us in awe.

Even when you can’t help but to frown at life, let all of the frowns and frustrations be at the surface of your being, because the things that cause frowns and frustration exist only at the surface level. Deep down at the bottom line of life, there is always beauty. And it is with that beauty that you should stay connected to because that beauty is not separate from who you truly are.” – Babajide Faseyi 

 

I wanted to write this post as a thank you to my friend Babajide F.

He is a conscious man in Philadelphia working as a bike courier, but he is also an amazing writer and author. He is very generous as he “writes his heart out” and posts inspirational, truthful and spiritual insights on facebook every day. Sometimes I wonder, “why isn’t he famous yet?” But during our phone conversation today, he told me that there is no need to rush our life’s journey. He even explained that as humans, we are a part of nature as well, and he used the analogy, “there is no way that a caterpillar can turn into a butterfly in one minute, or that a 3 foot tree can turn into an 8 foot tree in an hour.”

I told him that I often see quotes online that say something along the lines of :

Or even worse:every-day-like-its-your-last

I told him that these quotes often make me feel stressed or rushed, or questioning why I haven’t gotten to where I envision myself to be. Where I know I can be in my dream world, and why that isn’t translating into reality as quickly as I may like it to. His response was very comforting. He said, there is no “day”, there is only right now. And that may sound like it could make me even more rushed, or to want accomplish everything right now! But I know that he meant that I don’t have to stress or worry about the future or the past, what I have and haven’t yet accomplished in the real world, because I am me (a spiritual being having a human experience). tumblr_mldobbiyuq1sn04vzo1_1280

I found this quote as I was searching for the other quotes. It is interesting to philosophize about this quote from the perspective that Babajide brought to me. Buddha was not saying to rush & live every day like it’s your last! But maybe something more along the lines of just be present in every moment, and be here now. Open your eyes and look out the window and see the beautiful trees, air and sunlight. And give yourself a big hug and say “I love and accept myself.”

I wanted to share a brief story of an unfortunate event that happened in my life recently (or fortunate depending on how you look at challenges). So, I have a Tinder profile, as many millennials in this day and age do. I listed my website and the fact that I am a Reiki Master. I received an inquiry for a Reiki session on my website and found out that he discovered me through Tinder. I was excited to book my first session at the Healing Arts Collective. Long story short, he said he “didn’t feel anything” after the session was over. He asked “what was that supposed to do?”. On his intake form he had written “No Goals” for what he would like to get out of the session. Afterwards he did mention that he wished we had connected more, or that I could explain a bit more about Reiki since it was his first session. Of course I knew that the Reiki was flowing through me during the session, but he may not have been open to receiving the healing energy.

I told Babajide of this story, and he comforted me once again by saying; “Everything happens in the spiritual realm before it happens in the physical realm”. He said that even though this man may not have immediately felt any physical effects, he still may have felt healing in the spiritual realms, or you may have changed his life. Even though this man may have only wanted to meet me for some sort of date, the Reiki session still occurred.

It was definitely a learning experience. I should also remember to “practice without expecting”, as a few of my teachers have said. This means to give a reiki session without planning or hoping for a certain outcome. I still usually hope that the receiver feels good afterwards, and have a positive intention for the greatest healing good. But, I still can not let myself get upset or offended if someone does not “feel anything”. Babajide also said that it is ok to explain or translate things to those who may be at a different level of consciousness. He said that in his writings, he sometimes has to write so that the general public can understand it, even though the message is coming from a very highly conscious level. In the future, I hope that I can be more communicative and be able to explain reiki to clients and people all over the world.

 

Sincerely,

VKP

My Youngevity Journey

On my recent trip to California, I was fortunate enough to meet my friend Amaya for an energy healing session. I had a great time exploring the sands and boardwalk of Venice Beach; I even found a drum circle on the beach that I was able to join!

As I was spending time with Amaya, he shared his “magical orange beverage” with me. One day we were getting ready to go out to a conscious dance event, and it was very late by the time we were leaving. We needed energy, so we just made a large Tangy Tangerine to go with us in the car!

So, the reason that this beverage tastes and makes you feel “magical” is because it includes the 90 essential nutrients that humans should be getting every day. It is hard to describe the way I feel after a week of taking it every day, because that would be like trying to describe an orgasm to someone that has never had one! I just feel younger, and more energetic.

I will admit that I was skeptical at first because I had joined a Network Marketing company in that past, but I ended up going into credit card debt because you had to buy the products before you could sell them. With Youngevity, it was just a $25 fee to sign up, and then you get to be a distributor for as long as your heart desires. Also, I wouldn’t typically look for supplements as I thought that I should be eating more organic foods straight from the Earth, but the fact is, most of our soil today doesn’t contain the nutrients and minerals that we need. I was taking daily vitamins, but I also discovered that most supplements on the market are only 8-12% absorbable by the human body (they are less bioavailable). Youngevity minerals come from a special mine of plant compost called humic shale in Utah. Youngevity supplements have bioavailability scores of 90-98%! You can find more information about this mine by clicking here.

I know that supplements can be expensive, but these are definitely worth it if you want to change your life for the better. But luckily, Amaya was able to help me pick out a custom package for my own health. It is quite embarrassing to admit, but I have always had problems going “#2” since I was a child. I would often clog toilets of neighbors and even public places. I have been taking the Ultimate Enzymes and Ultimate Flora FX every day and it has helped me tremendously. I feel like I am able to digest food like I always should have been able to. I have also started a membership at Bikram Yoga Philadelphia and have been going almost every day. With Youngevity, I feel great emotionally and I have more energy to exercise as well.

So thank you Amaya for introducing me to Youngevity, and Dr. Joel Wallach for your years of study and bringing Youngevity to us!

To find out how you can order Youngevity products from me, become a distributor, or ask me anything else, feel free to write me a comment or go to my Youngevity site!
