The Highest Form of Self Care

silence

Many years ago I felt lost, ungrounded, and full of fear. I went to my teacher Papa Joe and asked him for help. He sat me down with a big grin on his face and said “the wind is trying to speak to you”. I was a bit surprised by his response. I tried but couldn’t hear the wind talking to me. He repeated himself, “the wind has a message for you”. Frustrated, I still couldn’t hear a thing. He said “stop trying and just do it”. I took a long deep breath and got myself as present as I possibly could. I started to sense the leaves on the trees and the rustling sound they made. Not thinking about the wind but feeling it and becoming one with it all around me. Then suddenly, as if a doorway opened, I began to hear but the voice was deep within myself. It was so simple.

“Quieting yourself is the problem and silence is the solution,” Papa said, beaming with pride for my discovery.

This experience changed my life forever. From then on I practiced what I had learned from my wise teacher.

I equated this listening with being the highest form of self care. When we are silent we can detach from all the cords that keep us in disharmony. So we can connect to the truth inside us instead of looking outside for answers and validation.

What could be better then being at home with ourselves?

“In a world, a city, a town, where people claim to be ‘a healer’ no one is more true, more studied, more genuine and powerful than this woman. From a sprained ankle to a heartbreak to a child suffering from ADD her hands on healing and intuitive capabilities will blow you away. You walk in one person and leave another, filled with peace, clarity and a real sense of renewal” ~Dina

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”.

Raising your Vibration

Have you ever seen Lord of the Rings? Remember when Frodo puts on the ring and enters another reality, and can see the energy world? Fascinating, isn’t it?  The shamans would describe this as journeying, the Toltecs call it dreaming, the Maori Tahungas call this traveling. This is how it looks for me when I am doing a session on someone.

I mention this, because if you were to be aware of what’s going on in with your energy, perhaps some of your choices would be different. Everything has a cause and effect. If you play in the dirt you will get dirty, if you eat lots of cake or drink too much you might feel ill. The same works with energy.

We are sometimes unconscious of what is happening in the energy world. Perhaps the mind thinks I can’t see it, therefore it doesn’t exist. However the energy world is very real. What we are doing with our mind, body, spirit on a daily basis is very important. What we are sending out and what our minds are thinking. What we are feeding it and how we are treating ourselves and the people around us. What and whom we are allowing to come into our lives and attracting into it. Is it an attitude of honor and respect? Or is it a vibration or frequency of fear and ego?  It is time to start asking these honest questions because we all need to be responsible for our vibration and our energy fields. It is easy to sit and quote the latest guru or poet or post horror pictures of the bullshit going down on the planet. But what’s more important, is for us to take responsibility for ourselves and our own lives. Myself included! When we are too caught up in the “me” we lose sight of the bigger picture and this is where I am going with the topic of “Raising our Vibration”.

The people that I work with have for the most part been working on themselves for some time. Read a few books, gone to a few yoga classes, done some therapy, have some sort of awareness of self help. So why won’t those things you want manifest, why do you have health issues, stress, pain and suffering? Are you going around and around with this? Are you tired yet? It’s time to stop what you’re doing and start to rise above. Getting rid of “story” is the first part. What do I mean by that? The story is all the reasons why you (cannot) move forward, whatever the problem is. We need to rid ourselves of all the negatives. Most of the time we know what to do, but do not want to do the work. The ego wants to stay in control and doesn’t want to change. In order to stop the suffering, as I said, we must rise above and begin a new chapter, a new frequency. It is all about common sense. Stopping the old paradigm, in order to begin the new.

Have you ever done any gardening before? Well whether you have, or not, try and imagine you and your life as a garden. Take a good look at it. Are there weeds? Do you need to water it, feed it fertilizer? Do new plants or seeds need to be put into place? Are certain plants getting too much sun or too little? This is the attitude and awareness you need to put onto yourself and your life. Looking at what needs to be done. If you do this you will begin to increase your vibration. If you start to do these things in your life the attention and awareness will begin to make apparent all what you need to do in order to:

a.) release what’s not working for you and holding you back

b.) put into your life what you need.

Your energy will begin to elevate as a result of this. There are some areas that might not be in your awareness yet. Sometimes we might be blind to the fact that we are holding onto things. We can’t always see ourselves and might need help with this part. A lot of our suffering stems from holding onto the past, especially resentments. Some may be short term or some more deep seated. This is where the true moving of our karma takes place. This takes great strength. Why would I forgive that “so and so”, they did this to me! Why?  Because this is the poison and heaviness that keeps you from opening up. It is locking you in place and not allowing you to move forward. It is that expression of “it’s hurting you more than it’s hurting them”. Also we might not have seen our part. This is also an area of importance. We sometimes think it’s all them . It might be, but it might be you’re not aware yet that you’re affecting others around you as they are affecting you. So all these must be taken into consideration to enlighten oneself.

The point being, we want to feel good. We want to get on with it and do what we are meant to do. We want most importantly to be FREE! This is what true healing is about. Again, we are not doing this because some outside force is watching us. We are doing it for ourselves. Letting go, opening up and Raising our Vibration!

As with the story in the Lord of the Rings, they were deeply challenged every step of the way, to choose the higher road. Just as I have been and continue to be tested! As will you.

“My journey in the wellness field began when I was a child. But in my adult life, 6 years ago, this is when the mind body soul “wellness” path i had been studying as a passion my entire life, pushed me, to make it a career. I was the host of The Healers Way and then founded The Angel Frequency. This path blossomed my abilities but also led me to work with and discover others with amazing talents. One of the top healers that comes to mind for me is Shari Geitzenauer. I love love love her work. She moves energy and you actually feel it. It’s not woo woo, it’s WHOO HOOOO!! I like when I interviewed her (see on my youtube.com/angeliquebianca) and she said “I help people when they are stuck. Like “Draino” for energy, I get you unstuck”. She absolutely unblocks the energy. When I was on her table, I felt like I was in Star Trek when they beam them from the ship and their bodies go into particles. I felt my body go into particles. I never felt anything like it. If you are feeling blocked, or have stuck energy, I highly recommend Shari’s work!”
