A PEACEFUL PLACE To Meditate and Heal

A safe place to share, communicate and exchange information.

One of my favorite Oracle Decks is "Healing with the Angels" by Doreen Virtue. Have used them for many years and in about 2016 they really started to speak to me on a deeper level.

One of the cards that comes up frequently for customers is "Meditation." There are many forms and definitions of that word. The simplest analogy is "Relaxation." When we meditate our minds relax from our human thoughts, insecurities and self induced stress. This allows Spirit and Divine Guidance to enter. Then we are free from the incessant issues our minds create. We are able to listen to Higher Wisdom in a state of detachment and Peace.

This creates the Freedom we are all seeking, even if we are not aware of it. Find the method of Meditation that works for you. Running, Walking, Yoga, Music, Chanting, being in Nature and focusing on the Oneness, etc..

The Gold at the end of the Rainbow will be yours.

I am a spiritual catalyst from the silent generation

No one has the power to make you unhappy or miserable.
Mainly, we do this by ourselves.
Happiness is our real nature.
Sadness comes mostly through habit
and through identification with the personal self.
We can be happy every moment but mostly, due to habit,
we choose to focus on what makes us unhappy
and so lose or hide our natural joy.
Develop the excellent attitude of gratitude to all of existence.
Overlook petty thoughts, worries and troubles
—the bitter and the sweet.
Instantly, you will begin feeling uplifted in your spirit
and in a short time you will begin seeing life
through brighter, wiser and more loving eyes.
Start today.

~ Mooji

When we argue with what is
As it shows up in our world
A perfect prescription for suffering
We have unfurled
It seems, perhaps,
That if we don't fret and fuss
Then situations themselves
Will get over on us
What we don't see
Is that will always be the case
When what is
Is the reality we just don't want to face.

The Pain Body - Eckhart Tolle
 
It is really great to find short versions of Eckhart's work. They are right to the point and absolutely a step towards healing. ~~~ iriana

“The pain-body wants to survive, just like every other entity in existence, and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it. It can then rise up, take you over, “become you,” and live through you. It needs to get its “food” through you. It will feed on any experience that resonates with its own kind of energy, anything that creates further pain in whatever form: anger, destructiveness, hatred, grief, emotional drama, violence, and even illness. So the pain-body, when it has taken you over, will create a situation in your life that reflects back its own energy frequency for it to feed on. Pain can only feed on pain. Pain cannot feed on joy. It finds it quite indigestible.”

Eckhart Tolle

Was so excited to find a birthday present for my dear brother. He is ten years younger than myself and had a major stroke about a year and a half ago. Not able to walk and is quite limited in movement as well. My sister-in-law has a birthday the day after his. She had a stroke about 15 years ago and can walk, but is impaired in other ways. Their birthdays are a day apart and have been married a very long time. It is always a challenge to find gifts for him.

About 6 months ago or so he changed his diet drastically. I have been sending him healthy snacks and food since he switched his eating choices. That seems to be something he isn't able to do for himself easily and he used to love food, so I attempted to nurture that. Not to long ago I found a food company that ships seafood through HSN and sent some shrimp that seemed to hit the spot. They were blackened and sounded nutritious and tasty. They went over really well. I know he loves crab cakes and the same company had them, but they were not gluten free. I kept going back to them and was so tempted to purchase, but knew gluten was a no-no. Tonight Spirit took me to HSN and I nearly jumped off my chair. They are now Gluten Free, were on special and there were 9 orders left. Don't think I ever ordered anything that quickly in my life.

Love how God works.....A miracle once again. Love spreading the Joy!!!
Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now. ~Eckhart Tolle

I love how Eckhart makes things so clear without using many words. We do have so many conditioned programmed responses in our lives. And one of the main threads for most of us is to focus on the future. Often the present is too uncomfortable and triggers emotions we are afraid of dealing with.

The interesting thing is those emotions are a gift. They are like gold. They give us the opportunity to go within and find out who and what we truly are.

I love analogies that can make something like I just shared more practical. Here is one that could make sense.

If we have a physical symptom that is ongoing or repetitive, we will usually go to either a doctor or a natural practitioner to get it diagnosed, and then deal with treatment choices. That usually makes sense. If something is caught early, most serious diseases do need to be caught early, then there is a cure or a treatment that will save our lives in the more severe cases. Sometimes symptoms lead us to seek help and the cause is discovered as a surprise and we are so grateful that we were led to someone who will help us.

We were not taught to do this with our emotional and spiritual needs. They were supposed to be hush hush and not talked about or dealt with. Not many generations back, there was total shame and secrecy involved if someone had an emotional breakdown of any kind. This is the total opposite of what was socially acceptable about physical illness and disease. We were and still are encouraged to go to Medical professionals and take medications for every ache and pain.

That makes living in the present with an emotional upset way too painful to live with in the moment. Our programming is skewed and although many of us have shifted our beliefs and priorities, we are still in the minority.  Much of humanity still lives in  and for the future and miss the gift of healing entirely. Ahhh being human is so much fun.

Love & Blessings
 

I have no idea how to say what needs to be said. So will just begin writing and see what shows up. Some of you already know what the focal point of my work is, and grasp how important it is to be in the moment and listen to guidance. Talking to you is a gift and I feel blessed by each of you.

There are many who do not yet understand why we are on the planet and your calls and needs are not to be denied. I do appreciate you and have your best interest at heart. That is why I continue to share emails about Waking Up, Being Aware, Seeing The Bigger Picture, Listening to Inner Guidance, keeping your connection to God as your Focus. Some of you get frustrated with me and I certainly understand why. And at the same time I have to continue to follow my guidance and share the energy that is up for us all at this time.

Sure we all want love in our lives, financial security, family life in balance, emotional stability, good health, etc. The human self has been taught that this makes for a successful life and personal gratification. As we evolve and progress on our paths we find out that is not really why we are in bodies. God created us and sent us here to remember that and to express the truth of he/she in our every moment.

Definitely not an easy thing to do, but oh so fulfilling. When we are in alignment with that all the external issues fall into place. Even if they don't look like "we" want them to, we know there is a higher plan for our presence here on earth, and we feel that quickening in our soul's.

From the deepest place within me I ask you to consider this, do some research on your own, and find out the TRUTH. Don't accept the status quo and focus your attention on the external daily challenges. Yes we do need to deal with them. But when we are in touch with our Higher Vibration, we know they are just a part of our experience and not the deeper purpose of our beings.

Any questions about this are more than welcome.

In Deep Gratitude,

iriana
Healing for most of us is a process. One thing that our ego minds do is set up expectations such as "I am going to be healed." If we don't see that take place, we begin to doubt God and lose Faith.

The healing process can take eons, and is different for each individual experience. There is no such thing "as going to be."  We are healed and perfect. Mind's programs got stuck for most of us, and just as a computer chip is flawed, so is our thinking. Then we believe that we are off base and not as God created us. 

 A very common message we receive from Ego Mind is that "When I am going to be......and we fill in the blank. " That is living in the future or projecting. There is only NOW. If we choose to clear the cobwebs it does give us the option to make better choices and create more freedom in our lives. That is the way most of us begin allowing God to heal our thinking. We find tools and/or teachers who speak truth to us and embrace that until it feels organic and becomes a part of us.

We want to focus on staying present in the moment and grateful for any experience that comes our way. No expectations or projections are needed. In this moment I Am. If I am at peace with that, that is all that is required.

From Lisa Natoli - Co-Founder & Spiritual Director, Teachers of God Foundation

When you have a pain or problem, do you get quiet? Do you wait in silence long enough to receive an answer?

I have asked these questions to many people over the years and usual response I get is “the blank stare” followed by a “no”.

“Getting quiet” (and expecting to hear an answer) is not most people’s first go-to action when they are encountering difficulties.

Most people search frantically for a way to solve their problems, talking to others, getting advice, and wondering and worrying about what to do.

The place where the question and problem are located is NOT where the answer and solution is. You will never find it there. You need to be transported from one state of mind to another state of mind, which is where the answer is.

Perhaps right now in this very moment you are in conflict about some area of your life and you have no idea what to do about about it.

If so, this week’s video and blog is for you.

I share about the holy instant and the quiet answer – which are ideas from A Course in Miracles, from Chapter 27 in the Text.

In the video, I show a visual illustration I did about how to leave the place of conflict and enter into peace.

Click here to watch the video now.

And then I'd love to hear from you...

After watching today’s video, do you feel confident that you really can solve all your problems in an instant?

You can leave a comment over on the blog.

Enjoy the quietness!

With love,

Happy New Year Everyone!

Have not shared a Miracle Story in quite some time.

Going to keep this one short I hope. God brought me a gift. A house to move to directly across from the one I l was living in and had to move out of. Owners wanted to sell. The day after the gift came literally to my door, another "possibility" came up. I got myself into a couple of insane months until I heard God say "ENOUGH." Shook me out of my stupor and I took action. And guess what, that brought me full circle right back to where God wanted me to be in the first place.......the house directly across the street.

Have no idea why I created such a drama. It did push fear buttons galore. Obviously that needed to happen. Apparently taking that house would have made life to simple and that must be against my religion. Lesson learned once again.

Love to all.

From last New Year's Eve to Now - May all blessings Be

This has been a fascinating year! We all have seen and been and done. Now, what did we learn? - If we have taken away from our experiences that we, ourselves, are the cause of all our joy, and yes, all of our suffering, then this was a Grand year indeed! May we see with real gratitude, that everyone, and everything, has shown up to do just this - Wake Us Up! - Give thanks! For it All - All of the time - and it will be guaranteed - this New Year will be nothing but blessing - upon blessing - upon blessing! I love you All - Janine Jansma

This card comes up consistently for customers. It came up for someone yesterday and got me to thinking.....why do we continue to give our Power away? How about making a committment to ourselves that we will begin 2018 by paying attention to the ways we can connect with our Higher Power and not continue on the Path of limited thinking and feeling Powerless.

 

POWER - Soul Coaching Oracle Cards by Denise Linn

Card Meaning - Express your strength with Grace and take back your Power. Its safe to own your gifts. Accept that within you is a place of divine strength and inner ability.

Your soul wants you to know  - This card appears when you are ready to stand in your power. If you've lost or given away your authority to someone or something else, it is now time to reclaim it. If you're holding on to limiting beliefs--or if you're afraid of being shunned, judged, or ostracized--it's time to let go of these limitations. Release any fear of misusing your Power. True strength doesn't dominate or manipulate. It's a gift from the Creator that dwells within you. You have the spiritual power that's born of sacred love, wisdom, and grace. That ability can heal others and bring light into the darkness.

Affirmation - "I am a radiant, glorious, powerful being!"

Give it some thought and let me know how you view your own patterns and what you would like to change. Would love to hear from you.


We can celebrate Empowerment in 2018!


Give yourself the gift of seeing who your true self really is. Best Christmas gift ever.

Hope your Christmas is filled with Peace, Joy and Love. Thankful for each and every one of you, Iriana

― Eckhart Tolle


“Life isn't as serious as themind makes it out to be.”
― Eckhart Tolle


“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.”
― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.”
― Eckhart Tolle

“Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the "love" of ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs.”
― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

This time of the year does often brings up unresolved family issues. I have found the teachings of A Course In Miracles to be the most helpful teaching regarding family issues. I have been applying the principles learned from it to my life for a number of years. The sooner I do that, the sooner there is transformation. 

My connections with all my family members has been healed and I am ever grateful. You can substitute any word that resonates for you instead of Holy Spirit. For me it is always God, but that makes absolutely no difference. It is just the handing over process that is needed.


Here is a quote from the Course
"You can place any relationship under the care of the Holy Spirit and be sure it will not result in pain, if you offer Him your willingness to have it serve no purpose but His."
~ A Course In Miracles ~

Many clients are resonating with Eckhart's work. Personally I listened to "Practicing The Power of Now" daily for about 6 months years ago and it was life changing. He has a number of videos on YouTube.

Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night.

 
 Eckhart Tolle quotes
 
“The past has no power over the present moment.”
― Eckhart Tolle

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
― Eckhart Tolle

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”
― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”
― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

“Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”
― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

This Week's Present Moment Reminder from Eckhart

"To awaken means to awaken out of the self-talk in the head because the self-talk is a form of hypnosis - self hypnosis." Eckhart Tolle

The more that I focus on who I really am, the gifts and talents that God has shared with me, the love that is in my heart, the less this self talk has any impact on me. It really does change your life and Eckhart is an amazing teacher.

We really do learn from our experiences and if we remember that suffering ends. The gifts that teachers like Eckhart share with us are everywhere. Videos, articles, books, audios, and many are free.

Feel free to let me know you need suggestions or have questions regarding breaking free from old patterns.

The holiday season is upon us full force. What a crazy ride. Enjoy yours.
