A Story of Healing

A few months ago, a client wrote an amazing article for the Huffington Post. It was about her healing experience with me. I was moved to see how such a skeptic could change her point of view and wanted to … Continue reading

Going Within

In this critical time return to a spiritual way of life, that is the way you will make it through” ~ Chief Arvol Looking Horse

silence

I read this quote by Chief Arvol and thought to myself “yes, this is the way”. The words hit me profoundly. Some people may be feeling the chaos happening on the planet right now. I know I am. Disease, war, drastic weather changes, and extreme financial insecurity is scary and driving people into more fear.

In my last blog, I talked about slaying your dragons. Fear is one of those dragons. So how does one deal with fear especially in these times of enormous turmoil? Where is safe? What is the truth? What is gonna happen to us or the planet in ten, twenty, thirty years from now? Think about it; we all know the shit is hitting the fan!

Going within is the only way we will know peace. Do you know what this means? Pulling your attention from the outside world and paying attention to your inner world. Your soul, spirit, intuition, and integrity. Your place of knowing. This is what was meant by a spiritual way of life.

When people come to me for spiritual advice or healing, the question is always the same. “How do I listen to my intuition”? The truth is we all know how to listen to our intuition, but just get a little sidetracked from our intuitive voice. The ego’s voice is much louder and has hooks to it. The constant programming being fed to us on a daily basis makes the ego very active. It says we need more, more, more! Come on, how ridiculous is this world of consumerism we live in? How far from nature do we need to go?

So what is being said here might seem like a “nice concept” for a few of those spiritual types out there, but we all need to begin to do this. We need to start making time each day for silence and going within. Taking time in nature, yoga, meditating , and walking. Anything that helps you get PRESENT. That means getting out of your constant mind chatter. Let’s all wake up out of our mind-controlled comas and be here now. So, how do we do this? The answer is you must learn to breathe. When we breathe consciously, it pulls our awareness away from the mind’s control. You do not need to be a master yogi to do this. Even if it’s five minutes a day, you are “doing it”. So just begin to DO IT!

Do I sound bossy or like I am on a soap box? If I do, it’s because this works. There is a war going on and it is inside of us. Never mind changing the world out there. Change yourself first, then you will have something to say. It’s time to slay those dragons. Breathe through those fears and stop letting them control you. Take back your focus and stand present in yourself now.

The indigenous people have the wisdom. What they have been telling us for years is very important now. Start your own personal path. Enter the place within yourself. All this takes is the choice to do so.

Slaying your dragons

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear, after that, fear has no power, and fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free. ~ Jim Morrison

shamen chick

As the summer starts to fade, and we begin to move into the fall it is the perfect time to become reacquainted with ourselves. Days become shorter and we start to go inside and prepare our fireplaces with wood as reflection starts to happen quite naturally. I personally love the fall. However it does make me feel sad and melancholy sometimes but in a good way. WIth the change of weather, I was inspired to write a new blog.

I went to the store a couple of days ago to get prepared for a dinner party at my home. I could not help but to notice a woman who was extremely rude. She nearly knocked me over to get a parking space. I later saw her face to face in the market. Her eyes were in a fury and very far away. The body language was cold, angry, and saying “me first”! Not someone present at all. I looked her deep in the eyes, and immediately got goose bumps. There was something else looking at me, and I knew it was not her.

It got me thinking about, how many times have we either experienced someone like this on our path or even been there ourselves? Ever stop to wonder what is the force behind this strange kind of behavior?

When I apprenticed with my teacher over a period of seven years, I began to notice these “things” not only in others but with me as well. What I saw blew my mind. When you actually focus on these fears, angers, strange behaviors/thoughts, and obsessions is that they are alive. It’s like they have a mind or will of their own, and they do. What are they? It was brought to my attention that these “things” were entities. People over the years have asked me “where do these entities come from”? I literally could spend hours explaining, but for now will just touch briefly on the subject.

It is important to start taking inventory so we can be responsible for ourselves. Take a good look at the fears that control and block us from becoming who we could be. A lot of our imbalances, sicknesses, depression, anxieties, addictions, and making bad choices, stem from these energies. Sounds like sci-fi, right? But if you really think about it, why is it so hard to change these things in ourselves? Or why would someone be so rude to practically run you over in their car? Why would anyone choose to be unconscious?

I have mentioned before in previous blogs, how important it is to do the work, to raise our vibration. Ridding ourselves of the dragons that keep pulling us down, dragging us off our paths, and making us into sheep or zombies.

Thankfully, you can get help with a great deal of this. Healers (Shamans, Kahunas, Tuhungas) people with “Real Medicine” to assist in transforming the negative energies. It takes time, but this is a start to beginning an existence of freedom. It is possible. With the awareness as well as surrendering your ego we all can Slay our Dragons.

Shari moves energy. She is invaluable for those who are ready to embark on journeys of personal growth, take responsibility for what is (or is not) happening to them. Or for those who simply need clear energy in order to move forward. Be ready for things to shift!”  L. Anomaiprasert

Summer of Love

Do you remember when you were young, and hours would go by and your parents would have to drag you from whatever you were doing? We were present, free, and alive. I can remember riding my bike for hours without much thought in my mind other than the moment. Now we have grown up (some of us) and we are responsible and have “stuff to do”, big responsibilities that drag our minds into a constant future. But what ever happened to the innocent child? The pure heart, the joy and passion for being alive.

summer of love heart

As we became older we were shown, or told,  what was the expectation for our existence. We became more and more guarded, and had life experiences that showed us how to be. We were wounded and molded through parents, school, church, society, friends, and developed our belief systems. Little by little we shut down and joined the status quo. We learned to lie and most of all lie to ourselves of who and what we were. If you were to fully stop in this moment and ask yourself, are you living “Your Life”, of who you truly are, what would that answer be?

So, I bet you are all thinking, wait a minute! I thought this was going to be a romantic tale. “Summer of Love”, running on the beach half naked late nights with a hot passionate lover. Well, that might be one chapter of the novel. Nor is this about, drug taking dancing in the fields or a rave in some warehouse. But where I’m heading with this is another direction. Sorry, I’ll save the romantic tales for another blog post.

This however, is a love story about you and your life. Beginning now to unwind all those barriers that were created to “protect you” but were they really doing that?

Could you for a moment imagine life without your worry, fear, judgments, and trying to control everything?  Can you perceive even for a second dropping all your “stuff” and just surrendering to the moment? Allowing yourself to enjoy this time in your life right here, right now. With all your so called problems. You see, at the end of the day, it’s about your mind’s perception.  I myself could give you a list of my woes but I choose not to focus on that, it’s not about your life being “perfect”.  It is about conciousness, wouldn’t you rather be in the state of love and joy?

Can you remember the last time you were in the moment? I mean completely present not already thinking what you had to do next. I’m not talking about being a mindless blissed out space cadet. But a person fully connected and grounded in their body. Loving yourself, exactly as you are, fully in this time and space. My personal bible, “The Power of Now”, brings you through in great detail how the mind constantly hooks us into not being present. It describes fully and beautifully, how we are running after a carrot in our thoughts. This never allows us to be here and just drop in to that delicious place called now. That is the place where love resides.

Remember the old radios on our parent’s car? With big chunky, silver knobs to move through the stations.  This is how we can change our present vibration. We need to tune the station and move the knob on that radio to a new channel. It’s called the station of love. Yes, and it’s that simple. Choose the station of love. And fall completely in love with yourself and come alive at this time. Or this could be called by some of the spiritual teachers, an awakening!

So that’s right! I’m declaring it: “Summer of Love”. Take a big risk, and do the biggest act of love. Letting go of your constant mind chatter. And release your incessant negative thinking. Then get ready to enjoy the beauty life has to offer. Why wait until you are perfect to be ok with yourself? And guess what, it ain’t never gonna happen. The time is now, to drop into love. And just surrender to that beautiful place called “Now”.

Your Soul’s Purpose

Soul
1.) The spiritual part of someone that is believed to give life to the body. 

shari3!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Purpose
1.) The reason for which something exists or is done: intention

What is it all about? Life can seem so large and overwhelming. There are so many choices and options. Of course there is all the mental pre programming on how life “should look”. We want to be the best we want to be secure. But what is “Our Soul’s Purpose”?

If you would of sat me down years back and asked me about my purpose, I would of chimed in about how my soul was “meant” to be an actress. How I was here to express myself blah, blah, blah! Now there was some truth to that. My name Shari, in hebrew, means: “to share”. And to communicate is pretty easy for me. But I was lost and coming from a wounded place of needing recognition and acknowledgment. This is however my truth I know several actors that this is truly what they are here to do.

My Soul’s Purpose is to heal and teach others. So how did I finally find my purpose? One, it took several years but that is my story. I have a very strong and sometimes stubborn mind. I did not think in a million years healing people would have been the way to go.

However when I was with my teacher Papa Joe, mentioned in a previous blog post, things began to take a different course. He sat me down and said I was not being honest. He went for the kill in a couple of seconds. From that point forward it was all about waking up from the “Ego’s Hold”. Whenever he spoke to me it was multi-dimensional. One or two words would stop you in your tracks. As if a large bell rang and it vibrated and chimed through all time and space. Time would stand still to the point of almost psychedelia. The wind would begin to speak, colors were vivid, everything felt as if it had quotation marks around them. Guess they were moments of being “awake and remembering my soul’s code” as he would put it!

It seemed so simple to the people around me. “You are so gifted why don’t you just be a healer?” I was always working on my friends in my spare time. But I intellectualized it all that just seemed to simple for me. Simple yes, but very difficult to actually let go and flow with it I did not trust yet. I still thought I was in control.

So many people are off track because their ego won’t let them stay still long enough to face themselves to de-code their own destiny. Especially when they get close to opening that door! Something cleverly distracts them again to flying off in another direction.

Before I go on I feel it’s important to mention this:

If you are searching for your path, purpose, or destiny you can become vunerable. The tendency is go and ask Madame Zora or the psychic of the month your question of “what’s my purpose?” This can get a bit tricky. One is how do you know how clean this psychic is? My experience with this is plenty. I used to be the first to give my power away and start spinning to get my answer. So this isn’t me standing on my soap box preaching. But it takes years to know who’s who in the spirit world. There are so many tricksters. You must have a teacher to keep you clean and in your integrity. All I’m saying is that if you open that door always ask your healer or psychic who their teacher is to ensure they are that they are safe.

So back to my original message:

Discipline is one of the hardest lesson of them all. But very important in pulling in your energy from all those “things” that need your attention: Work, children, friends, family, school and general day to day issues. The phone alone can pull you into a portal. Instagram, texting, facebook, email (old school) so distracting. But where you hold your attention is where the energy is and there you are. You must give yourself silence to focus, be still and listen. The answer is there inside you. Let it open and speak to you and create the space to receive the information. All you need to do is to stop and ask with an open heart “What is my Soul’s Purpose?”. If you ask with sincerity it will begin to set in motion all you need to know about your purpose and why you are here on this planet at this time.

I will be having my second workshop for all the information go to my Group Sessions page!

“Some experiences cannot be explained. But they are transformational nonetheless. Shari has a gift. Her energy work is healing. Her authenticity is glorious. Her lightness of spirit engaging. Highly recommend taking your troubled soul to her and seeing what happens. You won’t regret it.”

Cellular Memory

Hello again, any of you LA people feel that earthquake this morning? My first response was “oh no how big is this one gonna be?” I was amazed to feel how intense the impact was, I guess mother earth is pretty angry……. Changing the subject I was visiting a friend this week, when I came across this tiny bird.

Shari

It was caught by my friend’s cat Sweetie. It was shaking and in shock. I picked it up and gave it some energy and it stayed in my hand, tired and exhausted from the attack. It looked up at me with full trust, knowing everything was going to be ok. Animals and children are very receptive to healing energy.

This brings me to my topic this week of cellular memory. Just like the bird, when people first come to me for their session they are scared, lost, in pain and confused. Their mind may not recognize what is wrong, why they are up all night, unable to sleep, anxious, fearful or depressed. When people are uncomfortable, most have a tendency to busy themselves. Their minds get overly active and start to create what I call “Story”.

In order to get to the root of the problem one must be still and go into the eye of the storm. This takes focus, courage and patience, and is why people come to have a session. I help hold that intense, strong, sacred space, where the person can locate the main cause to the upset, the cellular memory. When we locate it the information is unlocked and the energy block is then recognized.

As I mentioned in my previous post the energy may be from traumas created at different time periods in one’s life, birthing imprints, or entities (negative energies).

All the client knows when they first arrive is that they are uncomfortable, but once the awareness is brought into focus the held energy or cellular memory can be transformed and healed.

I think back to the injured bird, after some time with me it gathered some strength and flew off. Humans have the same capability to release themselves from the turmoil, to feel lighter, to heal. The trauma is lifted, released, or sent back to that other lifetime. And person returns to daily life, happier, freer and with more positive energy.

Like that bird flying away. We have a “choice” to heal through grace and fly again.

“Shari is a gift.  When I met her I had been in pain for a year in my lower back. It got so bad that I couldn’t even walk. When I met Shari, I was forever changed! She found the block I was holding wrapped around my lower spine. One session and I never had back pain again.I have continued to see Shari over the past 5 years whenever I feel out of balance.  She has helped my husband, all 3 of my children and my animal friends too.  I have sent everyone I know to her as well, and she has helped each person just as she has helped me. Shari’s work is beyond explaining in a few words.  I guarantee that anyone that goes to see her will not be disappointed and instead changed forever.”
