A PEACEFUL PLACE To Meditate and Heal

A safe place to share, communicate and exchange information.

Here we are approaching Thanksgiving once again. All of the Spiritual Teachers share the same message. Gratitude and Thankfulness are always about our perception. We create our reality by being grateful in each moment for what we do have. I join you in doing that on a daily basis.

 

 

Loved this Quote from Anthony de mello.

 

 "If you are not happy, you have been trained to blame yourself, not your programming, not your cultural and inherited ideas and beliefs....What are these false beliefs that block you from happiness?

 

1. You cannot be happy without the things that you are attached to and that you consider so precious.
2. Happiness is in the future.
3. Happiness will come if you manage to change the situation you are in and the people around you.
4. If all your desires are fulfilled you will be happy.

 

Most people are so brainwashed that they do not even realize how unhappy they are—like the man in a dream who has no idea he is dreaming.... Understand your nightmare for what it is and it will stop; then you will wake up to reality." - 

This is one of the best Oracle Card decks that I know of. Just shared this card with a client and reread it. We do have a tendency to want to run from the parts of us that we consider unacceptable. I love how Denise makes it so clear that all aspects of us need to be Embraced and brought into the Light.

Embracing - Soul Coaching Oracle Cards by Denise Linn

Card Meaning - Embrace all of your life, both the dark and the light. Dance with your shadow, reclaim parts of yourself that you've denied. Embrace your past and what has been hidden or denied.

Your Soul Wants You to Know - The path of wholeness is through acceptance and embracing parts of yourself. Every experience you've had--even the ones that you thought were bad--was important for your spiritual journey. What you deny in yourself can fester and even control your life. Embrace your darkness because you need every aspect of yourself in order to attain wholeness. Don't suppress your anger, or bitterness, or fear to a place where it can grow in the deep recesses of your being. Bring it to the light. Accept and love it all.

Affirmation - "I embrace and love all of my life."
"Forget about trying to fix your relationships or change the ones you are with. Just focus on YOUR OWN vibration. If you think something needs to change, it's you. YOU start living in love, in joy, in peace, in freedom, whatever you are hoping for when the relationship is your idea of "perfect" start living it now and stay there. Don't tell your spouse what you are doing, just start living in this new way. One of two things will happen: Either they will join you in this new place of joy and freedom OR they will disappear from your life. Either way, you're out of conflict." (The Vortex by Abraham-Hicks)
 
Hi Everyone,
As you probably know by now this is the foundation I live by and share. We all finally come to this conclusion when we see that nothing else works. We do it in our timing and it is an organic change that cannot be rushed. I am always delighted when a customer calls and this resonates with them. Am also delighted to share how and why I learned this with you.
 
Thank you for your continued calls and chats. You are appreciated always.
 
Angel Hugs, Iriana
 

We are all confused and have no idea why we are on a planet that is more confusing than we are. It cannot and is not why God created us. That is our job now. To remember who we truly are and why God created us. There are many keys to help us to solve this puzzle. I am happy to share the ones that have worked for me with you.

 

I am lowering my price on my Life Questions listing to $1.99 for the rest of today....I am on AZ time so for me that is about 4 more hours of work.....You can check the price tomorrow too. I may leave it at $1.99 for Thursday. This is a clue -

What is commonly called 'falling in love' is in most cases an intensification of egoic wanting and needing. You become addicted to another person, or rather to your image of that person. It has nothing to do with true love, which contains no wanting whatsoever. - Eckhart Tolle

I was a very impressionable adoloescent and teenager.....when it came to love and romance especially. During the 1940's and 50's when I was growing up, I saw every Romantic Musical movie made. I truly believed that Prince Charming was going to come and sweep me off my feet. I think that most women still  have that same dream embedded in their consciousness even in this technological age.

 The man I married was the total opposite of that. He was not at all romantic or interested in being so. He was a very practical business man and that was his life. We married young and neither of us had any idea who we really were. As I have grown and focused on my Spiritual Journey of Awakening, I now have an understanding of why I did what I did and how it shaped my life.

 I have sent many of you a list of the most influential teachers on YouTube... Also posted it on my Blog page awhile back. They all have free videos and all share a similar understanding. Eckhart Tolle is one of them.

 My work with each of you is focused on the truths I have integrated along the way....we are not at all clear on who we are until we understand that most of what we learn on this Planet is erroneous. We basically need to forget what we have learned here and fill our minds with what God teaches us in the silence and awakens in our hearts.

 It is my great pleasure to share what I have learned and experienced with you. Thank you all.

 



Do You Yearn For Purpose? Do You Feel Like A Stranger In A Strange Land? Do You Want to Make Changes and Don’t Know How? These are the questions coming up for many in these challenging times.

My journey has taken me through over 40 years of navigating these waters. What I have learned through study and listening to that still small voice, is that first we are to connect with our “authentic self.” Once we know, accept and love that self, we can observe how it operates and reacts to the external world. We cannot change our perceptions and focus if we skip this important step. Many of us try to bypass this experience because it is where all our triggers are. All the emotions and the appearances of human judgments and suffering are activated and felt. Why wouldn’t we want to bypass that, numb ourselves in anyway that comes along, and live in a dream world. As I see it now it would be like a child who wants to be 18 when it is only 12. As we all know that is not uncommon. We need the wisdom that only experiencing what we have created ourselves to be, before we can make another choice. Once we do that, then we can be reborn and know our “True Selves and be One with all that is.

I would be delighted to share the tools and understanding I have gained with You! It can be an exciting adventure!!!
Love how we are given the opportunity to see things differently in each moment. My default reaction still gets triggered and I fuss and fume for a bit. Then I hand it over to God and in a short time Peace returns and I remember that I Am As God Created Me. There is nothing I need to do or say…..the mind’s pictures no longer hold fast and they melt into knowing that Love is always the answer.

We are so blessed to have this community of many who are on the same track. They may take a different train to a different destination, but ultimately we all arrive at the One destination that hold us together. God’s Love. There is nothing else to strive for. I saw a short sentence somewhere that said you know that “when the inside is more important than the outside you are on your way home.” That is what we all have in common and the respect and love we share is because we recognize the beauty in each other. Love you all.

Who Do You Think You Are?

Inside every person, says Osho, are at least three personalities. One is what you really are, about which you know almost nothing. The second is what you think you are. The third is what you want to project to other people that you are.

Why are we so afraid to be who we really are?

“Inside every man there are at least three personalities. One is what he really is, about which he does not know anything. The second is what he thinks he is. The third is what he wants to project to people that he is. Every individual is divided into three levels. The first is the one he is really on, but is unaware of. The second is the one he considers himself on. The third is the one he wants others to believe he is on. In this way every individual is divided over three levels.

“The real man is who you actually are. You think that you are very humble, and you are filled with ego inside. If you think you are very religious, inside you will be full of irreligiousness. If you think you are a man who does a lot of social service, from the inside you will always want everyone to serve you. Are you really the person you understand yourself to be? If you remain stuck at who you think you are, you will never come to know your real inner being.

“Before he can come to know himself, a man has to become naked; he has to drop all his clothes. We not only wear clothes on the outside, we also wear clothes on the inside, in the mind. We are not only afraid to be naked on the outside, we are also very afraid to be naked on the inside. We are very afraid to see ourselves naked, to see what we really are. We should not see what we are, otherwise we will be afraid of ourselves. So we put on many faces and decorate ourselves in many ways; we make many arrangements to avoid seeing our real inner self.”

Osho, Three Steps to Awakening, Talk #3

  ~annie kagan - author of The Afterlife of Billy Fingers

       1. Life on earth isn’t a punishment for your past transgressions. You aren’t acting out some type of I-did-something-wrong-to-you-in-another-life-and-I’m-paying-for-it-now kind of thing. It doesn’t really work like that. That concept of an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth karmic equalizing of the score isn’t the real deal.
.
2. You chose your life circumstances before you were born for soul-type reasons that are almost impossible to understand while you’re on earth. If you understood these reasons, life would lose some of its punch, and that losing of punch is a little bit of what enlightenment is all about.

3. Everything changes. When you die, you realize how much. You also realize there are immortal things, things you take with you, and they change too. The Eastern concept of Maya, or illusion, what does that really mean? It means temporary.


4. Life is great, even the hard parts. And we all do things that we call mistakes. But so-called mistakes are ok. They’re just part of the earth deal.


5. You’re meant to engage in all kinds of things on earth, things that may not make sense from a human point of view. So, take a moment before you judge yourself or your fellow man too harshly. Being completely non-judgmental while you’re alive is very advanced, though. You’d have to be a Buddha to be that advanced.


 6. There isn’t only one right way for things to turn out. Some endings are happier, some not so happy, but it’s not just the happiness percentage that matters. It’s the music of it.



7. Society teaches limitation. No matter what you’ve been taught, everything you ever need is already inside you. And who you really are is far beyond your comprehension. That’s why living squeezed into the human experience can be painful at times.


8. At the center of everything is an energy, an immaterial material called LOVE. Wow, and how good it feels, this LOVE. You can’t imagine it. You really can’t. There is noway for you to experience the full power of LOVE while you’re on this plane. .


9. Death isn’t as serious as you think it is. It’s actually very enjoyable. Couldn’t be better really. And saying goodbye to the people you love isn’t as serious as it seems either, because you will meet again.


Have recently been told by Spirit to go back to the beginning when I first started to Channel for my friends. It was when I felt the most connected to God and to myself. They also told me that I was a Mystic and I was told that in that time frame too. That was back in the late 1980's.

A mystic is born; being a mystic means having a certain temperament, a certain outlook on life. It is for this reason that many are confused by the word mystic, because mysticism cannot be explained in plain words. To a mystic, impulse has divine significance. In every impulse a mystic sees the divine direction.

Love those confirmations from Spirit. This puts the pieces of my life into perspective.
Explains perfectly the direction my work has been going in the last 10 years. I just forgot that is how it all began. Really didn't know myself well then and was certainly not ready to own it.

Feel grateful and blessed.

Namaste, Iriana

"All your thoughts belong to the past. Everything you do is a reaction based on past experience. Even when you think of the future, the thoughts of your future projection come from the thoughts, memories and experiences of the past. All mental activity comes from stirring up thoughts of the past. The present moment is free from thought, but when thought arises, you are no longer in the present, you are in the past. The thoughtless present moment is peace. It is only the thoughts of the past that make you miserable."

~ H.W.L. Poonja, "Papaji" (20th century Indian Advaita mystic)

When I was talking with a customer last night, I said something I always say. And then the backup came from Spirit,  and of course made so much sense....Nothing new but that clarity was a gift. 

"We all need some kind of teaching or teacher to fall back on in these crazy times."
When Jesus brought his message through, the world was crazy too. But....and a big BUT, there was no technology. Now we have to deal with all the crazy energy on the planet, with the addition of all the Technology. It doesn't just affect our minds, it creates wear and tear on our electrical systems, nervous systems, physical bodies, emotions, and eventually our mental stability.

Staying focused on God and Spirit is a full time job without all of that interference. Support is NEEDED for each and everyone of us in a Physical Body. What we choose for support is totally up to us, as long as we choose something.

If you haven't sought what inspires and stabilizes you, or if you are seeking and haven't found what speaks to you, do the research. That is what the plus side of the internet does provide. We can find what we need.....YouTube has many wonderful teachers on it.  Their videos are free. I am attaching the list I often send to clients.

If you do follow a specific religion or path, that is available too. Christian Bookstores are full of wonderful tools, as are Metaphysical Bookstores,  with writings and teachings for many other paths. No one will be left out if they just do a bit of research.  Most Ashrams and Churches and Synagogues have shops that provide what is needed for their particular beliefs. Unity Churches have a large selection of materials from all religions and beliefs. Everything is out there. Find your niche and take a walk on the path of peace and harmony. We all benefit from it, and you deserve it.

Thank you.

If you have connected to me for any length of time, you know I don't answer What, Why, How and When questions. Everytime we ask those questions we are automatically focusing on our human/ego selves.....The same when we ask about another being"s thoughts, feelings or actions.

 When we open ourselves to any of the Higher Teachings, we learn that it is never about anything other than Self, and our growth in knowing who that Self is. It takes us all a different amount of time to first learn this, and then to know and integrate as it becomes a part of our foundation.

 I had the honor of doing a reading for my daughter the other day....she is in a new relationship and the Angel Cards showed that she was focusing on herself and  learning and growing more into who she is from the relationship....she is almost 52, been married twice. First to a Pathlogical liar who was abusive when she was 19....and then to a man who she brought up 3 crazy teenagers with. She stayed with him because of their combined family and then her first grandchild....she got progressively more shut down and her life force was waning. Finally they separated and later divorced.

 The new man in her life turned up....he is actually someone she dated before her second marriage. She went on Tinder and he was the first man to contact her. She spoke to 19 others and not a one interested her. I could tell that this connection was a good one, and when I did the reading yesterday and saw the Angels she picked, I was amazed. So much growth and Empowerment has taken place within her....it was truly a blessing to see that.

 When we focus on ourselves and don't need anyone to validate us, God will bring us what we need on all levels. Trusting that is a challenge and eventually a blessing when we are ready to meet it. We know intuitively when it is that time and then the work begins.

 My work is focused on sharing the tools that will point you in the direction you are being led to by Spirit.

 Thank you for sharing moments with me. You are a blessing and a gift.

 


From Nouk Sanchez  -  "If I am triggered by something, it's not me personally who is triggered. It is the filter I have chosen to look through, which is generating wrong-minded fearfulness. Only fear can seem to be personal. If I am triggered I am choosing to see with the ego's thought system. I view the event through the ego's lens of guilt and fear. The event itself is always neutral. No matter how shocking, unfair or cruel it may appear, the event always remains perfectly neutral in Truth.


In God's Truth, suffering, cruelty or unfairness is impossible. Therefore it is always my interpretation of the event that either reinforces my guilt (Because I have identified with the ego's interpretation) or frees me from it (because I have chosen Truth instead). If I perceive suffering then I do not perceive with God."

Was told by Spirit to share this with you.....A lovely customer who has called often, included these two sentences in the Keen feedback she left for me this morning.

"You were on my mind yesterday and I stated I would love to have Iriana's attitude towards life and other people. She doesn't let anyone or anything bother her. That is what makes her amazing especially the fact she speaks her mind no matter how the situation goes."

Well if only it was that simple. The ego dies daily and that makes it an ongoing process. She was correct about my attitude....it is no longer controlled by the ego's reactions and I do work at that consistently. I know many would agree that is the hardest work our human selves have ever done. When something or someone bothers me, I call that being triggered.....It comes and it goes. Right now I am in the thick of it. My granddaughter had her second child and she is on overload. Since I live near by and she needs help, I am in the midst of dealing with her and my daughter. They live in the same house and so I do see and exchange energy with them often. I live about 5 minutes away, thank you God. Our lifestyles and focus are very different and I do get triggered.

That is when I have to go within, get quiet and still and allow God to show me what I need to learn, let go of, and when I do need to speak up. It is a balancing act, and unbeknownst to the lovely woman who wrote the feedback, I am from the "Silent Generation." We were taught that we were to be seen and not heard. Because this is my family who I love dearly, it is a great testing ground, and currently takes place often.

My point in sharing this with all of you is that we are here to do this....We chose to be in bodies and have the opportunity to break old patterns right here and now. Not easy for anyone and it does take practice, intention and commitment.

Thank you all for your patience and calls.....We are all learning together.
