Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Power of Serenity

Serenity powerfully supports your journey.

Serenity is not the absence of distressing feelings, but rather the peace that transcends them. This peace exists within the state of being of enlightenment, awareness and/or awakening.

The Earthly bounds of experience may lead you to believe that life is fearful, tragic and distressing. Though, certainly, things that generate fear can happen; Things that may be deemed as tragic may happen; and things that generate distress certainly happen.


And yet, your experience of these things can be balanced with your awareness and lead you into a peace beyond the human suffering of those without awareness.

This awareness we refer to moves you into a greater energy flow of abundance, harmony, joy, peace and liberty of life that the human mind in and of itself cannot perceive.

This perspective is a place of power. Unlike the human perspective of power, it is not based upon ego. Ego-power relies upon force . . force of will or force of strength or force of influence of disapproval.

Awakened power relies upon Divine Connection. This power empowers others while remaining untouched by outside circumstances.

When you find yourself bothered by external circumstances, restore your connection to The Divine through prayer, noticing the beauty of nature, the comfort of a pet. As you do so, the outside influences diminish in proportion. The more you connect, the less fearful, agitated or distressed you become. You will find action to take if it's needed and be guided to take the next step. If no action is required, you will be led into peace in the moment.

You will be free.

Those outside circumstances might still be there, or they might begin to subside . . . either way, you have a sense of power that is rightfully yours to own.

You thereby return to being the Master of your own Life and transcend suffering into serenity.

We walk with you into this serenity.

Can We Just Turn Off My Intuition – Part III

So, I was in the chiropractor’s office the other day. In walked a fella who announced that he expected to see both chiropractors immediately. He then sat down near me and started talking about something grim that happened years ago in our community. I just said I didn’t want to talk about that. He excused himself to the restroom. In those brief moments, I recognized I was dealing with an energy zombie.

I prayed for strength and safety while checking to see if I was grounded and spiritually connected. Both were good. Whew! (grounding = being aware of the Earth beneath my feet and the conduit of energy flow between me and the bedrock or the core of the Earth. Spiritual Connection = sensing the connection between me and Divine Source, having a sense of Angels or Spirit Guides nearby to assist.)

When he came back, he apologized for talking about that old incident, so I thought for a moment we could just chat about the weather or something neutral.

Nope.

He started in on something else that was grim, negative and totally nothing either of us could do anything about. So, I just said, “Ya know, I’d rather talk about something positive.”

I could see his gears grind to a halt. It’s what I call an “ERK.” The pattern of thought gets disrupted and you can see a person pull back. Sometimes you can see them tilt their head or have a blank stare.

I told him what I thought positivity was and how powerful it can be to bring love and joy into a person’s life. ERK.

He brought up staying at a friend’s house while they were out of town. I said what a blessing that was for both him and the other person. “It was filthy!” he grumped.

Well, it went on from there. No matter what he said, I said something positive in return. At one point, he condemned his friend for not helping him financially. I said, “Hmm, you might be in judgment about that.” ERK.

He condemned this person and that organization – on and on.

They finally took him into another room.

The office staff asked how I was doing and I said I was fine. And I was!

Check in! Are you feeling fine? If not your energy slipped! Re-ground yourself. (Notice the bedrock or the core of the Earth beneath your feet and the energy flow.) Are you spiritually

connected? (Sense out for your Maker, Angels or Guides. Once you sense them, your spiritual connection reactivates.) See? Fun! Way-Cool!

I had picked up immediately on the situation and had armed myself with grounding (to allow the dark energy to flow away from me) and Spiritual connection (to allow clean energy to flow in to my whole being. I even sensed angels drawing near to me.)

Afterwards, I did a breathing technique that really helps to clear and heal this sort of distress. I based this technique on the Quantum Touch Healing technique. It’s a powerful healing methodology you might want to learn about.

Notice the Universe. Space. Notice its vastness. Notice that even though it’s spacious, it’s also full of planets and solar systems and constellations. Full yet spacious. Notice how it feels. Open. Powerful. Peaceful. Moving. Changing. Silent. I also recognize that God (Divine Source) created the Universe out of love and creativity. Not out of duty and obligation, but joy!

I breathe in this Universal Joy and sweep it up my body to about an arm’s length over my head. At this point I focus upon something I love, appreciate, or enjoy. Maybe you love a favorite pet or family member. Or you love a favorite book or vacation perhaps. Maybe you’d like to focus upon how wonderful it feels to get together with friends or how much you enjoy rock climbing (I accidentally typed rock clinging – that’s what I would do! lol) or gardening. Create an image of anything that brings you deep, pleasant feelings and place it over your head.

When the Universal Joy connects with that which we love, it allows us to hope for everyone on this planet to feel the same love and joy or positive feelings that we experience. We then allow this compassionate energy to release by exhaling this compassion to the whole planet by breathing through heart-space. (Okay, so air goes in and out of our lungs and nose, but energy flows wherever you desire it to go. The air will go out your nose, but the energy will flow out your heart-space.)

Breathe in Universal Joy and sweep it up your body to above your head. Allow that to connect with what you love, appreciate or enjoy and exhale compassion through your heart-space.

Breathe in Universal Joy. Pause while you connect with your own deep feelings. Exhale compassion through the heart-space.

Breathe in joy. Connect. Exhale compassion through the heart-space.

Universal Joy. Connect. Compassion for all.

Universal Joy. Connect. Compassion for all.

Do this for a few minutes and you will find yourself uplifted. You are untouchable here. Other’s neediness and distress cannot effect you in this state of being.

It’s not about being perfect. It’s about returning to this state of being when you choose to do so.

Your intuition can remain an active and vital part of your being without causing you distress. It’s really not your intuition that’s causing the distress, it’s our reaction to other’s distress that creates one’s own distress. This breathing technique built upon our intuition helps uplift us out of that sense of distress that isn’t ours anyway!

I’ve shared with you some new tools.

You’ll forget them. We all do. And yet, when you really need them, they will pop back into your memory. Perhaps the next time you feel drained you might sigh heavily. That sigh will remind you to breathe intentionally. You will remember there is a breathing technique to assist you and uplift you. You’ll then remember this process and will be able to help yourself instantly.

Many blessings with this. It’s saved my well-being on more than one occasion!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Balance of the Heart

You are doing well in bringing your heart into balance. Your heart as in feelings in balance with your heart-of-hearts as in your purposefulness. (Personal will combined with Divine Connection) Each heart has it's value and together they bring you the fulfillment you desire.

Once these two aspects of your being are in harmony, then your efforts to reach for the Light and expand your awareness are greatly blessed. Your intuition will expand and guide you into the next right step for your journey.

This balancing technique seems odd at first, but with use, it becomes your regular state of being. You will live from your heart-of-hearts while your emotions alert you and inspire you. This grants the mind a task to perform which it will do with great ease and proficiency.

What WILL you choose for yourself? Do you choose to let your emotions run the show? This leads you away from fulfillment. Emotions alert you to things that feel unsafe or to things that bring you joy. Yet, sometimes trying new things feels unsafe and emotions hold you back from stepping forward. Notice the emotions and see what they try to tell you without falling prey to their demands. When the heart-of-hearts is online with your emotions, this will grant you courage, willingness and peace for the journey.

Your journey leads you into amazing things! We walk with you in this.

Just Make My Intuition Go Away! Part II

Have you found yourself asking for your intuitive self to be removed or disconnected because it’s just too painful? Part of this pain comes from being around people who drain and exhaust your energy. That’s painful!

This world is full of very broken and troubled people who become energy drainers. There’s a lot of regular people out there who are just hurting.

We don’t mind giving energy to someone who is temporarily hurting. However, we are not talking about a matter of giving. This is a matter of energy stealing. Rather than an energy vampire who takes your energy by being unhappy, these are energy Zombies. . . . this type of person eats your energy to the point you cannot think, respond, or even move. And it can happen very quickly. One moment everything seems fine, then the next – you are drained.

Truth is, these people are so empty that they become a hollow shell that cannot feed on enough energy to get full. They always want more. They are intuitively drawn to caring hearts because those are the easiest to feed upon. We are less guarded - rightfully so, because living all guarded up is not what we came here to do. Actually, being all guarded up causes us to miss initial cues of their energy being amiss.

Unfortunately, they are really good at disguise. Like a chameleon, they disguise themselves and sweet people and just need a bit of a helping hand. Once you bite the hook, they reel YOU in. Once reeled in, they feed upon your kindness, good nature, and loving heart. You really don’t want to cut out your loving heart, you just want to be safe from this drain.

So, how to recognize and protect yourself in the future? Notice that their brand of helplessness or neediness has a sharp edge to it. It's not just a matter of doing a kindness for them. You can sense the difference if you look for it. You will feel a sense of needing to back up or feeling uncomfortable in a subtle way. You intuition will really help you avoid difficulty if you let it.

The moment you first notice an energy drain, while you can still think, look away - they eat (consume) your energy through your eyes. How do they do that? They have huge expectations of how you should be or how you should act or what you should do for them. When you don’t measure up to this unnatural expectation, they view you/see you with disdain and judgment. That judgment is felt by your caring heart. That judgment then allows them to absorb energy from you. It may feel like it’s coming out of your guts or your heart-space.

As soon as you notice an energy drain, back up so they cannot get within arm’s length as they are capable of sucking energy right out of your aura. If they are too close to you physically, they suck it right out of your heart space, your solar plexus or your whole energy field. Know, too, that their voice and their criticism/victim-speak sucks the energy right out of your heart, body, and energy field even over the phone!

Get away. Get some physical distance. If you have to be around this type of person very long, your awareness and intuition will be your saving grace! You will want to perceive this energy drain before it happens or just as it begins . . . not after you are already depleted.

If you cannot notice it right away, as soon as you recognize this form of energy thief, look away, back away, disengage - excuse yourself to the bathroom and then don't get back to them. They may get mad at you, but far rather they get upset than you get drained. They are only upset because you evaded the trap and now they have to entrap someone else to feed. Once they know they cannot feed on you, they don’t waste any energy in your direction. But use caution! If they think you’ve weakened, they will attempt to reattach!

What's really sad is that they don't even know what they are doing and they feel that everyone else is “so mean” to them and they cannot understand why. If you hear any one start to tell you how mean other people are to them, go on full alert! (Danger, Will Robinson! Use caution or you could become Lost In Space!)

You may think to yourself, well, I cannot be mean to anyone!

Keeping yourself save is not being mean! “Mean” is their judgment of clear energy boundaries – Their judgment of you being mean not the truth. Truth is . . . Letting them feed on YOU is mean, because then they don’t go to Source for their energy . . . by giving them YOUR energy, you are starving them of REAL, SUSTAINABLE energy! You are cheating them out of what really feeds them!

Stand your ground with a clear conscience.

What is also sad is not only do they feed on other's energy, they also download (dump) their dark energy into the one they are feeding upon - much like a mosquito. Receiving that poison will feel itchy and miserable long after the event has happened.

So, how to get clear?

Your awareness of the situation and getting away is your first response.

The second response is put them in pink light or pink bubble. This disrupts their energy barbs from getting to you. They cannot feed without hooking in first. If they've already hooked in, when you walk away, shudder (shake it off) and sweep yourself off with your hands - especially the heart-space. Once you are clear of their attempt to attach, you can release any dark energy they may have downloaded onto/into you. If you can put your hands on a tree or on a wall, this will ground out that dark energy.

The pink bubble connects them with God, who is truly the Source of all they truly need. You can add a prayer to connect the pink bubble to God and envision the pink bubble open at the top connected to Divine Source.

Lastly, here is a way-cool technique for reclaiming your energy and getting clear.

Notice your heart-space. Notice there is a door there. Don’t see it in your imagination? Create one. (See?! Your intuition and imagination are saving graces!) Open the door and notice a thread of light emanating out from your heart-space out away from you. Don’t see it? Imagine it. Once you see that thread of light, say, "All that I Am that I may have given away or had taken away, return to me now!"

You will feel the energy that is truly yours return to you down this thread. It might take a few minutes. Once you’ve received all you can receive for now, this thread of light will stop beaming out of you.

While that door is still open, you can release any downloaded energy. (The door should remain open. If not, re-open it for thus releasing step.) Then say, "All that is not mine be removed fully and completely." You will feel that dark yukky energy (betrayal, anger, frustration, confusion, fear, to name a few) being released or pouring out of you. For me, it’s like a big glob of gunk that spills out onto the ground where it is absorbed deep into the earth. (It feels like my heart-space vomits this dark goo. Sorry for the yukky visual.)

When that release has finished processing, that heart-door will close and vanish. You will feel a lot less drained and more like yourself. Probably more so than in a long time as we allow others to drain us more often than we realize.

There is more to this healing process, but this is the quick version and it works really well!!! I’ve been known to do this process every morning and every night.

Caring for someone doesn’t drain us. Acting out of love doesn’t drain us energetically. Yes, we might be physically tired, yet that unspeakable energy drain doesn’t happen when we act through a loving heart. Our intuition and our imagination work hand in hand to protect us and to help us clear. Now you can interact with your world on a higher level of vibration and feel safer doing so.

There is one final part to this series I hope to share with you next time . . .

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Point of Center

As you awaken to the unfolding of your journey today and each day, we encourage you to come from a place of center.

Each day you may have a list of things you wish to accomplish. This is good. And yet, the greatest accomplishments come from a point of center. Point of center is the place where mind and heart and spirit meet, join, and create.

You can decide to do a thing, yet without your heart being in it and your spirit willing, nothing will happen. So, too if you want something to happen yet don't have a plan, nothing happens then either.

How do you find this place of center? In one word, relax.

The state of relaxation or ease allows all of you to come on-line energetically and function together.

How do you find this sense of ease? In two words, let go.

Can you observe the sunset without having to make it different? That's letting go. Can you notice the breath in your lungs and not need to change it? That is being at ease. This at ease state of being is not being unconscious or oblivious! Rather it is an awakened state of awareness without pressure, expectation or urgency. Moving into this state of awareness with ease brings you into center and all aspects of your creative self come on-line.

It is from this place of center that we inspire you, guide you and cause things to happen in your benefit more easily.

Allow us to assist you!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Power

You are more powerful than you know.

You perceive your power as the ability to influence others. We perceive power as the ability to influence yourself in a good way. This is the power of choice and the power of love combined.

You can choose to do good or to do ill. You can feel the need to make yourself heard. You can experience the need to be right. You may take action towards these goals. None of these are true power.

The power we consider as power is the ability to influence one's self beyond habituated patterns and beyond other's opinions. Choosing to take action out of love and compassion rather than self will and glory.

This is not to say that we expect you to give up all of your own goals and become self-sacrificing. Not at all! The motivation of love allows one to set the self-serving goals aside as needed. Being kind to one's self and nurturing one's self is necessary to move into a state of true power.

Yet, the power of which we speak allows others to be kind to themselves and nurturing of themselves without taking any offence or need to change them.

This power is limitless and enduring. This power comes from the place of choice instead of the place of reaction. This power comes from the place of wonderment ("I wonder what my next step might be") and allowing Divine Source to reveal that next step.

Within the place of power, there is tremendous peace. You do not feel peace? Then take a new look at your power and your power source.

Breathe in a new perspective as if you ALREADY were all powerful . . . then move forward with that feeling/awareness.

We have more to say on this, but for now, just allow yourself time to ponder and notice how you derive your power and how you utilize this power. There is much to be gained in this search.

We walk with you in this discovery.

Just Make My Intuition Go Away! Part I

The biggest reason people want to cut off their Intuition and Spiritual Awareness has to do with spiritual overload. We sense and feel everything around us. It feels like it’s just toooo much!

When I first awakened to my Intuitive self, I could hardly go in to a restaurant. I would pass the first table and feel everything each person at that table was feeling. I would feel their sadness, anger, joy, frustration, loneliness, grief, and worries to name a few. Then I would move past the second table while still feeling overwhelmed from the first table. God help me if we were seated in the back of a large restaurant!!

Once I even felt the wind blow through me on the way into the restaurant and felt a sharp wave of overwhelming feelings . . . nearly knocked me to my feet! I was so unsuspecting!

My husband, Phil, was understanding, but horrified and helpless as he watched me go from happy and joyful to heavy and overwhelmed. He strongly encouraged me to do something about that because it was breaking his heart.

So, over the years, I’ve found several solutions that really work. I’ll share some really powerful ones with you. I share them with you because living closed down is really not an option. All those walls and barriers we attempt to put up don’t really work. They just take whole lot of energy to sustain them. There are easier ways to be free of that energetic overwhelming experience while remaining intuitively and spiritually open.

Closing down or shutting down or removing the intuition is like removing your eyes. You need your eyes to see! You need your intuition to “see” your world energetically. Your intuition is your early warning system (you can sense something amiss before it appears) and your life support system (your life-force energy flows through the intuition).

Here is the first practice that I did when I was just newly awakened. It really helped tune me in and eased the trauma of being overwhelmed incredibly fast. Before you go into a restaurant or a place filled with people, ask Divine Source to “As a practice, please reveal to me a word or blessing for one person in this place.” Your guides/angels/Divine Source will then direct your attention to one person. All else will fade. All else will fade!!! You will not receive any other information!

You will be gifted a word a thought, an impression, or a kind blessing for that one person. You do not have any responsibility to give that word or blessing to the person! This is just your practice mode! Thank your guides/angels/Divine Source for this information and just be “at rest” where you are. Clutter starts to pour in? Immediately ask your guides/angels/Divine Source, “Please allow me to be at rest.” Then focus upon the menu or who you are with or if you are by yourself, bring a book. Do not allow yourself to be distracted from “at rest.”

You have choice and power over your intuition. It does not have power over you! Know this! Practice this! Take charge of this gift!

If you get into a car, you guide the car to where you are going . . . it is a mode of transportation only. It doesn’t take you where you don’t want to go.

Your intuition is a mode of awareness to get you where you really want to be – A Divinely connected blessing to this world. You are a better blessing when coming from a place of “at rest” than a place of overloaded. From that place of “at rest” you can receive more and

deeper information for one person. This is a huge practice that really helps you move beyond overload and into all the aspects of clear-seeing, clear-hearing, clear-communication, and clear-sensing.

Also, it’s coming to my attention that you may enter a restaurant, movie theatre or shopping center and “hear” whispering or conversations just out of ear-shot. You are hearing other people’s guides and angels as they are either communicating with one another or sending guidance to their person. This is really none of your business. However, this experience lets you know that you are tuning in to the frequency of guides and angels and can communicate with them . . . your guides and angels and other people’s guides and angels. How cool is that!?!

You can use the SAME practice of requesting a word or blessing to let the guides and angels know that you can hear them. Again, ask, “As a practice, please reveal to me a word or blessing for one person in this place.” They will either give you a word or blessing, or they may move out of ear-shot. Either way, you are not so overwhelmed with that energetic noise. Again, you are not responsible for giving the word or blessing to anyone! This is just practice so you can receive and then move into “at rest” mode. Like an engine on idle, it’s on, but not going anywhere. Your awareness is ready, willing, and able to get you where you want to go WHEN YOU DECIDE you want to take the journey.

Obviously, there are many other techniques that I could share with you, but this – by far – is the most valuable. This not only eases up the energetic/intuitive clutter that overwhelms, but it also prepares you for MORE! And if you are ready for MORE, I can help you with that, too. MORE to come on that!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Healing with the Living Light of Love

When you turn a light on in a dark room, the darkness vanishes.

So, too, when you turn the True Light on in your life, darkness vanishes.

There may still be darkness in the corners of a room where boxes or furniture may obscure the light. So, too fears and worries, shame and regret can obscure the Light of Love from your life.

To bring Light more fully into your being, look at those places that obscure the Light. Look at them with Love. Not as a way to beat yourself up or inflict more shame or regret, but rather noticing the lesson learned while releasing the pain.

Don't see the lesson? Perhaps the lesson was not yours to learn. Perhaps you were the teacher. Sometimes the pain is darkest when we bring hard lessons for others to receive. It may even feel as if the punishment is yours. Perhaps not. If you cannot find the lesson to be learned, bathe the situation in Light and Love. In confidence release the pain and suffering knowing that if there truly is a lesson, it will appear after the pain has been relinquished.

Please release the need to suffer about it. Do you feel as if suffering makes the pain worth it? No. Pain and suffering are optional. Your experience is no less significant viewed from a place of wholeness and grace than viewed within the walls of suffering.

As the Living Light of Love washes over old wounds, they release naturally in and of themselves. They are not constructed of light. Light washes the suffering away, if you allow the Light to reach these obscured places.

Once released, energy opens up for you. Renewed energy that had been used to hold the darkness in place. Rejoice in this!

We rejoice with you!

Campaign to Refrain from Disdain

Phil and I noticed the other day that we had somehow developed a tone of disdain with each other. I hadn’t been feeling well and he’d been really feeling the pressure of deadlines at work. Whatever the cause, we didn’t like it and we made a pact to refrain from disdain.

Distain is that nasty sharp tone of voice that cuts deeply. The words may be harmless in and of themselves. “What?” is an appropriate way to seek additional clarification. However, that same “What?” spoken with a silent “you worthless piece of scum” energy projected in the query harms both the one speaking and the one hearing.

It’s like a paper cut. Not very deep, yet it hurts like heck and it continues to hurt for days afterward. If experienced again, slices deeper and stings like crazy. People don’t die from a paper cut, but the sting reminds one that they are no longer ‘safe” with that person. When we speak with that tone of disdain, we sow the seeds of fear and mistrust. We are, in actuality, asking the other person to mistrust us!

Why do we speak in that tone of disdain? It’s a learned response to frustration. It’s meant as a simple nudge to push someone to please us. We want a certain thing a certain way, and we want it right now. Maybe stressors elsewhere make us feel impatient with the ones we love. Maybe we just get full of ourselves. Maybe we just are functioning barely within our limits. The outcome remains the same. Pain and mistrust ensues.

Energetically, here’s what happens. That tone of disdain cuts right through the energy field surrounding a person and slices directly into their heart-space. This slice is quick and sharp, so it doesn’t feel—well, terrible—just a slight “urk” feeling. Pulled up short. This opens the energy field and the heart-space. Positive energy leaks out while the disdain edges in. The disdain is like poison. Without realizing it, the receiver responds in distain as well. Both people leak positive energy while both people “fester” with this disdain poison all the while sending it back and forth.

We feel unsafe and teach/reinforce that unsafe feeling. The really sad thing is that we speak this way to ourselves!!!

So, how do we refrain from disdain? Notice it when it happens. Recognize it is not about you! Release the disdain, and heal yourself immediately with inner words of truth and kindness. (Like, I love, honor and respect myself. I appreciate all that I do in the time and way I do it.)

In time, if another person has spoken with disdain towards us, we can speak calmly to the other person. Perhaps we can let them know (lovingly as we can) that the way they said a thing kinda hurt. They may or may not get it. They may or may not be able to change. Their words of disdain are evidence of their own pain of frustration. Notice and let it go.

When we notice that we’ve spoken in a disdainful way, we apologize immediately! Even to ourselves! We restate what we intended to say in a clear, non-emotionally charged tone of voice. EVEN IF WE FEEL THEY (we) DESERVE our disdain, they don’t. No one deserves disdain. It’s that disdain poison talking. Stop listening to that voice.

We get to speak our truth clearly with a neutral voice. This heals us and offers healing to the one listening. Speak to the heart. The heart hears and feels what is being said and how it is spoken. Let’s let our words heal.

I wonder if we could start a campaign to refrain from disdain this year? Could we speak clear truth? I wonder what a difference this could make in our world? Let’s give that clear voice a try!
