This is part 2 of a multipart blog series. Click here to read part 1.
We’ve been in the flow lately… undeniably so. It has been remarkable and filled with insights and as I was cleaning houses (old and new), I found something! Not a total body cleanse, although important and part of the story, rather something more profound; perhaps a miracle, I have to say the experience has altered me somehow. Or… maybe I was just primed to see something (from my last total body cleanse…), again, to be reminded just how this journey called life works. I marvel at it, truly… and yet, it seems to be a continuous struggle to maintain this view… or did. Let me explain.
20 or so days ago, Heather and I spontaneously discussed the perfect place to live; a place we could expand our lives and grow, something we could share with family & friends, a place we could grow our business and share with our tribe. We listed all the things we would want, right down to the neighborhood; we were very specific. Today, I am sitting in the back office of that home writing this blog!
Everyone can relate, I am certain, to the experience of moving… Yet, we both handled it in stride! I admit, there were a few times that it got challenging, yet I was able to literally turn 180 degrees from the thoughts, words or actions that were noticeably blocking the energy of expansion. Somehow, I was able to maintain a peaceful clarity throughout what certainly looked like chaos from the outside, eventually the perceived chaos diminished and now I gaze upon a completely new experience! So, how did I do it?
I didn’t! It was the Flow… We are in it. All of us, all the time. Prana, Chi, Energy, Universal Energy, God, the Great Mystery… on and on the traditions describe something like “a fabric of reality”, something that keeps it all together, connects all creation, and so on… (So I am gonna leave that part alone and know that if you are reading this, we are close enough or on the same sheet. )
I have been shown over & over again, on this near 20 year journey into understanding myself and allowing consciousness to expand through me, that indeed there is something working on our behalf… in the ethers, I like to say. Now, I am thinking, just straight up what I am calling ethers is actually it! But truthfully, I have NO CLUE!
My teacher says, “we are happy… that is our nature.” And all the times I looked at him and thought, “hmmmm…. no shit, there must be something to this”, I am now realizing… yup! there is.
These past several days have shown me yet again that we are indeed part of something much grander than I could ever figure out. I received empirical data to support my conclusions and directly experienced something palpable and profound. The only way to describe it is to say this.
There is a place I found… only I don’t have to go anywhere, although it feels like I leave it sometimes, where I feel safe, secure and nurtured and HAPPY, yes, happy. and I don’t mean ‘happy to have passed the test!’ or ‘happy to see you!’ or ‘my children make me happy’ or ‘happy its friday’, no I am talking about a deep sense of joy or bliss. ultimately, these words do it no justice. but i know the feeling. and when I feel that way, things work out… the Energy wants to expand, Consciousness is evolving and it is doing it through us. Aware or not, it is happening. When I tune into that feeling…
I am that feeling. I have come to that conclusion now and that it is up to me to support this human being in experiencing its birthright. Bliss, ananda… all the sages, saints, mystics and masters have pointed humanity to this fact. Ok… mind blown. again, as I said. I am a yogi, that is what is ironic… one might think, I got it… but the chatter in my mind has had its way with me, too! (and likely will again, albeit each time is less and less intense!)
Lets do a little 2+2…
All the saints, sages, masters, mystics…, the Wayne Dyers and Eckhart Tolle’s, the Beatles and other celebs… Jim Carrey, for goodness sake! google it. Jim Carrey Awakening… bam! My teachers… ALL SAYING THE SAME THING.
Now, again… me.
Does that mean what I think it means! yup… AVAILABLE TO ALL… They do call it the Infinite… that means everywhere… you, me, them… over there, here, yesterday, tomorrow… it is here, now. Always.
Cleaning my homes last week (1 old & 1 new) I found something… It was here all the time, silently waiting for me to return; to notice. (yes, i have been here before… maybe you have, too!) I found a temple, a true hOMe that I carry in my heart… a place I can never leave, nor ever go; I have always been here; safe, nurtured, supported and cared for. And so have you.
Total Body Cleanse
It is up to each of us to gain the clarity; consciousness is evolving through us all. Are you stuck? This is where the total body cleanse comes in. Of all the practices I have turned to over the years to gain and maintain my clarity, one sticks out to be the very best and quite honestly a rapid way to achieve clarity and gain insights when you are feeling out of sorts. A total body cleanse has been my goto over the years to feel lighter in body… mind & spirit. I firmly believe that our food system in the US is a contributing factor to systemic issues of low energy, physical & mental illness, along with a host of other issues plaguing our society. Cleaning up your diet for 10 days, is not only a great way to begin to entertain some discipline your life, but the healthy, happy vitality that results from the 10-day Transformation of a total body cleanse will bring some zing back into your life and a sure cure to feeling stuck over or after the holidays. There are many out there so do your research; many are not pure, organic, non-gmo, sustainably harvested, etc… but that may not matter to you. If it does, click here to learn more about the products I use daily.
There are many practices available to facilitate the expansion of consciousness within you… We aim to share what has worked for us: Yoga, Meditation, Energy Medicine, along with dietary support in the form of supplements and organic, non-gmo, minimally processed foods. Please comment below what has worked for you…
