STACY VAJTA: “How Do You Know What Is Truly Aligned With You?”

There’s a shift in consciousness happening that’s moving people into their own energetic integrity; living life in alignment with their heart and spirit.

How we live, what we choose to do, the relationships we foster, and even the work we do are all being assessed these days for how aligned they are with our deepest truth; how they support us in moving forward in our own spiritual evolution and what we do right here, in our everyday lives.

The idea of alignment soothes the soul. Yet understanding what is in agreement with us — the right thing to choose — is often a sticking point for people. I see this all the time in my work. People know what they don’t want but have a whole lot of confusion around what is desirable… and even more so, what’s truly aligned.

How do you know what is truly aligned with you?

The other day, someone asked me why I thought a project I had started fell flat. And I shared how I realized I was doing things that lived up to some idea outside of me; a point of reference my dad held that I’d never accomplish what I really wanted to.

I had deferred my own knowledge about myself to his assessment for so long, it had become not only a belief of mine but a deeply woven external reference point that I had to extract myself from to change the belief and start making more aligned choices that did work for me. Although at the time, my initial choice felt aligned because I was so energetically enmeshed in the energy of this point of view. There it is though. When our choices are not aligned, the bottom line is with our own inability — at the time — to recognize, choose, and live our own truth because we are energetically enmeshed in something other.

Energetic Reference Points.

I talk about energetic reference points in my work a lot. They’re those energetic stakes in the sand that we anchor to, that help us assess something or compare things to. These energetic reference points are like signposts, helping us to both understand, and relax into, how we move through the world.

Yet, when we’re working off an energetic reference point that’s external — stemming from outside of us and our truth — we’re actually working off of other people’s ideas, energies, and needs.

Our energetic sensors recognize what’s familiar to that referencing system. We’ll gravitate to what emotionally fits and feels aligned with that. We’ll use that external energy (a.k.a. information) as a source of reference to help us make decisions and understand things. We’ll tie our energy to that and let it influence our choices.

And, in the process, we often forget our own internal point of reference, which helps align us with what we want and need: our true story.

Confusion.

When you get your most confused, it’s because you’re working off of this external energetic reference point. Deep down, you know something is off… but what? You know this energetic signpost so well. You may have even been working off of it your entire life.

Yet this nagging need for alignment is still there. This inner conflict begins to play out between the need to find alignment and the energetic information coming from outside of you, fueling your process. You get lost in how to understand yourself and what you need.

It can be challenging to let go of working off of someone else’s energetic point of view — be that your family, society or someone who impacts you in some way. To do so, you have to let go of what has “externally” helped you establish meaning, and now find your original energetic signpost within yourself. You have to own up to what is you and stand in the power of that. Anchoring back into you.

Shifting back into your own internal energetic referencing, like anything, begins with awareness. You must first recognize that you are using someone else’s energetic universe and ideas to fuel your own decisions.

Next comes reconnecting to your own passions and ideas. You must claim your own truth, despite the fears of falling short in someone’s eyes, disappointing someone, feeling ashamed for choosing you, or any other myriad of healing that needs to happen to transform what has kept you from feeling safe enough to choose you in the first place.

And then, you must do the work of growing into the person you must be, to live your truth through what you do.

This isn’t about cutting cords. It would be really easy to think that perhaps you could just cut an energetic cord to someone (or their ideas) if their energy was connected with you. But that’s way too simple of an idea. Sorry. I really hate to burst the bubble on that concept.

If you are working off of someone else’s energy — their energetic reference point and not your own — it’s because you, for some reason, have not yet had the ability to recognize and claim your own truth. You have unconsciously deferred your energy and your choice to someone, or something, else.

To find alignment, you must first come back to you. You must first know yourself and be able to use that as your gauge for what feels aligned with you. The signs. You’ll know alignment when you feel ease and grace, but more importantly, you’ll recognize alignment when you establish your own internal energetic referencing system that guides you into choices that deeply resonates with your truth.

If you aren’t owning your truth and working off your own energy — and using that as your reference for what is real and right — alignment will allude and confuse you.

I love the phrase, “If a door isn’t opening, it’s not your door.” If things aren’t working for you, then there’s something that’s still out of alignment; there’s still some energy that you are using as your own source of assessing what choice to make, that is not your truth. Don’t keep randomly trying new doors. Find the means to do the inner work to assess where you are working off of some external reference point.

Shift back into you; claim you. Then, you — and energetically only you — can begin to choose what is aligned from a place of clarity and energetic integrity.

GABRIEL HEARTMAN: “The Road To Lion’s Gate — The Departure From The Third Dimension”

I feel like I have been in a parallel dimension that past couple of days. Feeling very tired and heavy in my body, not so much in my heart. There has been a feeling that I of moving in a field of density that made it hard to really feel motivated to do much. And that was actually a good thing. It gave me an opporTUNEity to tune into what is moving inside me and the collective as we are moving through this gateway.

I could feel how the 3rd dimension is in progress of a deep and immense purging from our spiritual and physical bodies that reverberate through our emotional bodies. It is like our emotions are the bridge between the two. Our own personal dowsing rod to access the direction of our True North.

As we continue to receive the invite from ‘above’ to move UP, to shift into timelines that most reflect our deepest gifts and authentic hearts, we begin to feel all that we have held as 3D energy inside the cells of our bodies and hidden places in our hearts. To the parts of us still with 3D anchors and emotional woundings, this can feel like a prying apart at times and that can manifest in so many varied ways in our bodies and our emotions.

As a sensitive to this purging and shedding, you may feel the collective response as well that adds to or amplifies your own. It can make you a bit mad at times wondering what the hell is really going on with you! There is a lot filtering through the Metasoul as well, as part of the ascension process is to heal that which remains in the karmic holding tanks of your soul.

The third dimension is in the rearview and if we still have energy there it is going to feel intense and draining at times. This is where going IN and doing the deep dive to feel all those anchors that may be spinning you in circles or giving your physical self some fits. This is an exciting yet intense time! It is not all candy corn and rose petals for many. Yet it doesn’t have to be suffering either.

There is a pathway. It is you consciously entering the domain of your heart and soul to navigate the beings inside you we call parts and aspects. They hold the keys, the answers, and more questions. They are ones that have been protected and the ones who have been doing their damnedest to make sure that you don’t get hurt this life, and yet ironically there is a pain in that as well.

Finding, honoring, and feeling these parts of you are what help to release those anchors and help Love find its way into your heart again. To help the process of Ascension take you to your forgotten 5th-dimensional realms of passion, joy, and creation. There is a field of dreams awaiting you, me, and all of us. It is Now and it is Here….on the inside.

ERIC RAINES: “Energy Update — 7/30/18”

“Once you taste a flicker of the euphoria and the heady passions of fulfilling your deepest excitement, suddenly life has a direction to point in and take meaning. Suddenly there is a path to walk. Suddenly, the unknown is right around the corner.”

~Eric Raines

 

It has been quite some time since I have been guided into an energy update, but this was as clear as a bell and demanded to be sent out.

The world is in a place of absolute flux. We have examples of energies that the world was certain would never change shifting with lightning fluidity, and at the same time, we have examples of energies that the world was certain would never happen growing into an explosion of flux potential.

In this place, as human consciousness begins to stand up to the collective programming, timelines are colliding, dissolving into one another and deleting whole histories of negative programmed timeline.

On the surface level, humanity seems more divided, scattered, fractured and manic than ever, yet we are literally seeing the potentials of what we all wish to see being germinated in this moment.

Now is the time of action.
Now is the time of growth.
Now is the time of awareness.

In this place, of uncertainty and confusion, the inner world can be easily uprooted and pointed in the direction that each of us actually prefers. Many around us are watching as those who step off into the unknown are exploding into activated potential; they wish they could do the same as well, but fear, uncertainty and doubt have iron grips around them.

The difference between them and those who have stepped into the unknown is that they are just a bit more comfortable. They have just enough to be scared of losing it.

Now is the time to begin to refine yourself. Now is the time to begin looking at what you accept as acceptable and refusing to live by those standards. Now is the time to begin looking within and asking, “What do I truly desire? What am I passionate about? What do I want to see in this world? What do I want to build for the next 7 generations?”

Truly contemplating these questions will force you to become uncomfortable. Suddenly, what was acceptable for you is not acceptable for you NOW. Once you taste a flicker of the euphoria and the heady passions of fulfilling your deepest excitement, suddenly life has a direction to point in and take meaning. Suddenly there is a path to walk. Suddenly, the unknown is right around the corner.

Here is the secret though. By beginning to truly step into energies of fulfillment, excitement, burning motivation and passion, the universe brings more of which creates those energies in you. The universe is a reflection, it has no choice but to echo back what you are sending out.

The people around you exploding into new heights of energetic activation are not “getting lucky” or “are born for this”….they are ignoring the outside illusion to go directly to what is real. The emotion. The energy. The passion for existing. They are not special, they are merely picking up a mantle and placing it on their shoulders. They are choosing to become MORE.

In this space, limitless growth is available. In this space, you open yourself up to the abundance of the universe. In this space, suddenly having just food, water and shelter is not enough. In this space, a vacuum is formed that pulls magic in. People, places, synchronicities, events, timelines, movements and family become a rich tapestry of fulfillment in a life centered around creating as much joy as possible.

This is truly being in 5D. This is bypassing all the mental programs, and dissolving it with the energies of pure, unconditional love for self, and unconditional love for others.

As we move into the energies post Blood Moon eclipse, think of the situation as if we have just climbed up to the top of the mountain, each step becoming harder, yet the focus of getting to the top is becoming much more heightened. From this elevated point of view, we can see directly the path of which we truly wish to experience. Ponder these questions, feel these energies. Choose your path, and begin to rush down the mountain on brilliant golden wings of joy, love and passion.

“But what if I fall Mama?” “Oh darling….but what if you soar?”

 

From my heart to yours,
Eric

LUKE MILLER: “8 Indications You Are Having A Spiritual Awakening”

eye

I like to think of a spiritual awakening as a dissolution of that which has been planted by outside influence. A spiritual awakening is not the attainment of a thing or something that is learnt, it is more a removal of conditioned behaviour that is not true to us in nature.

Don’t get me wrong, you often reach this level of spiritual awareness through knowledge, guidance and learning, but all this information is doing is leading you back to that which deeply resonates from within.

A spiritual awakening is a journey that many will not understand, it can be scary, confusing, alienating and is not always a positive experience. However it can also be rewarding, connecting and most importantly honest.

A spiritual awakening is different for everyone, for some it is great, for others it is painful. Some people come to the realisation that they have everything they need right where they are and for others, they feel the need to up and leave to travel the world in search of adventure.

As each awakening differs it is hard to give blanket indications that fit everyone, but here are 8 indications that you are experiencing a spiritual awakening.

Thirst For Knowledge/Understanding

I am not talking about ego learning, where we try to consume information just for the sake of knowing, I am talking about trying to find a deep understanding of information that relates to your calling and that which has significance in your life.

Living spiritually can slow you down (although not always), let you connect to that which resonates with you and give you a student mentality. This mindset comes with the acceptance that Rome was not built in a day and if you want to learn, you have to always remain a student.

Realisation Of How Little You Know

This can go hand in hand with a thirst for knowledge, the more you learn the less you realise you know.

Even in achieving mastery in a subject you will never know it all and you should always remain a student in your craft.

For some it may seem a little uncomfortable to not have the answers, especially if you are looked upon as a teacher of some kind. The reality is your students can teach you just as much about your craft as you can teach them.

We all look at problems differently and we all have a unique approach, don’t be afraid to learn something from someone who may be considered an amateur in comparison to you by most.

A prime example of this is our children, we are here to guide them, take them by the hand and lead them in this world, that doesn’t mean you cannot learn a lot about yourself through their wisdom.

Connection To Things You Are Passionate About

Collectively we are disconnected, we go to jobs we dislike, attend social gatherings that we are not interested in and engage in habits that do not serve our best interests. Most of these are conditioned and things we feel like we should be doing.

When you have a spiritual awakening it is a dissolution of the conditioning that has brought you to this point in your life, so to continue to live against your true nature can cause significant discomfort.

The funny or not so funny thing is- these moments of awakening are often dismissed as some kind of crisis. Someone who enters their mid-forties and all of a sudden wants to get into music or start traveling the world could be categorised as “having a mid-life crisis”.

Often family will get together and try to return you on the straight and narrow and give you some Prozac to help you to be “normal” again. I call bullshit, if you feel like getting a tattoo, shaving your head and attending festivals in the Caribbean, go for it, you only get one life so don’t live it trying to please the world.

Pain, Inner Turmoil & Overwhelm

I said in the intro that a spiritual awakening it is not always an all-round positive experience and this is an example-

If you go from one lifestyle to another it’s like learning to walk again. Sometimes it can be embarrassing living differently to the way you are accustomed to, sometimes it can be confusing because you don’t know which direction you are moving in and sometimes you can doubt yourself.

The best thing you can do is keep riding the waves, trust the process and know that what you are doing it true to you.

Inner Peace & Balance

On the other hand you can experience massive amounts of peace, tranquillity and balance. When all the dots connect and you learn to live in flow with that which matters to you, it can feel like you are flying through life, without a care.

Synchronicity- (the more you follow the more good things start to happen)

If you keep getting strange and synchronistic messages like 11:11, 22:22 or in my case 33 you are getting a nudge telling you to keep going.  Synchronicity in abundance is a great sign you are on the right track. The thing about synchronicity is it is always there, it is when you actively follow it that you really start to see the magic.

If you are trying to find information and it falls in your lap, you need to communicate with someone and they randomly call or the perfect person at the perfect time shows up follow it! It can be a little weird to start with, but the more you follow, the more good things will start to happen.

Better Communication

You may just find the ability to shut up and listen, we all like to share what we have with the world, but you can never learn while you are talking.

It is okay to listen, it is okay to spend an entire evening absorbing what other people have to offer, it is okay to observe. It is also okay to have input when it is necessary. Finding that balance can be tricky, but when you open up spiritually it opens up your senses and you get a much better vibe of where you are with people.

Heightened Intuition

Logic has its place, but so does intuition and when you find yourself deeply connected you will find a heightened sense of intuition.

It can be hard to base decisions on how you feel, especially when you are used to weighing things up logically, but take the plunge, trust your gut and go with your intuitive feel. You may get things wrong, there may even be some consequences for your mistakes, but you will always be able to draw some positive out of every experience.

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it, if you are going to do one thing today just make sure you live your life with true purpose and be brave enough to take risks and move forward, much love, Luke!

LJ VANIER: “11 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently”

PresenceofGaia_Josephine Wall_jpegHow many times have kicked yourself for not following your inner voice, your inner ear or just trusting your gut? How many times have you said to yourself “I knew I shouldn’t have done that!!”… and how many times have you paid for it later? If you’re anything like me, you could say a lot.And then there are those people who just seem to have it all figured out, well at least, for the most part. They seem to have that extra sense. They’re tuned in and locked on and life seems to flow more naturally for them.

7e49529664b7248c68e296a63bc36a85-e1466106361976-636x381Yes, they can be aggravating for those of us who don’t always see the world quite so clearly.

Or for those of us who know the path, but just can’t seem to put one foot in front of the other and follow it with what appears to be blind faith. Many of us are still so accustomed to more logical and rational (right brain) thinking that we block out our own intuitive knowing of what we should do, making the more safe play in many of life’s circumstances.

There is one major difference that separates highly intuitive people with everyone else, and the difference is trust. Highly intuitive people know how to trust themselves.

They have an internal knowing that they don’t need to muddy and meddle with things in life. In fact, they understand that the more they interfere, the more they become a hindrance in the natural unfolding of life’s journey. It’s the way of no way so to speak, and through it, we find that life will always align itself with the experiences we need to find fulfillment.

11. Their Partners

A highly intuitive person chooses their partner not by looks, physique, material possessions or any other ego driven persona. An intuitive person looks deeper. Equipped with a built-in radar that pierces beyond to find what rests in their potential mates heart.

Quite often you will hear a highly intuitive person say that they chose their partner above all else because he/she “has a good heart”.

10. Their Careers

shutterstock_203246677A highly intuitive person will not choose one career over another because of a larger salary.

When faced with career decisions, they will choose the place of work where they feel the most connected to those around them.

They seek vibrational alignment and mutual understanding with their coworkers.

They want to work and create with those that bring them happiness and fulfilment.

9. Their Passions

Highly intuitive people almost always have a passion or a calling. They can’t help but be creative as their intuition breeds creativity, building upon each other. Creativity is always beckoning for an outlet and the more in tune we are, the more we are need of one!

8. Where They Live

Highly intuitive people require solitude and lots of it in order to rebalance and recharge.

Alike to empaths, highly intuitive people are aware of the energy around them at all times and are very observant. In tight living quarters, they are able to feel the energy of others and will quite often scope out their surroundings before signing any kind of long-term deal. Intuitives prefer living along side bodies of water, or wide open green spaces and when they can’t get their fill of the forest, they will bring nature to them, literally.

7. Their Friends

shutterstock_12314449Intuitives know themselves very well and by this wisdom attained they understand others on a deeper level than most. Intuitives will keep their circles small but are known to be very likeable and approachable to others.

Highly intuitive people are often drawn to friendships that will encourage their own personal growth and seek those who can match their level emotionally by mirroring themselves in order to illuminate the hidden aspects of their shadow.

Highly intuitive people will have learned hard lessons in friendships and will have lost many along the journey, all the while knowing that each served as a stepping stone in their soul progression. Intuitives aren’t afraid of these relationships and are thankful for the lessons they bring.

6. Their Body

I eat what I want…. when I want!

Intuitives are known to be ‘snackers’ and they listen to what their body needs in order to function at an optimal level. They know that great energy flow begins with taking care of your body first and intuitives know how to listen.

5. Their Goals

“My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but better than I used to be” -Wayne Dyer

shutterstock_199696376Highly intuitive people are not usually highly competitive or in constant competition with others.

They tend to measure their success by looking back to see what they have learnedand how far they have come.

4. What They Value

“More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren’t so busy denying them” -Harold J Smith.

Above all else highly intuitive people value honesty. They understand that every single person on this entire earth is here to learn and evolve and they appreciate those who can own up to their own faults. They highly value wisdom attained and understand that wisdom can come from hard lessons.

3. Their Activities

shutterstock_335742965

A highly intuitive person will naturally engage in activities that will balance their energy.

They will be automatically be drawn to what they feel is ‘out of sync’ and will seek to rebalance themselves as soon as possible.

This will typically occur without a conscious thought process as they find themselves sporadically participating in outdoor activity, a yoga class, gardening, clay moulding, painting, reading, writing, meditating, or simply listening to music.

2. Synchronicities

From an outsiders perspective, a highly intuitive person can be viewed as someone who is quick to draw conclusions or someone that is always looking for meaning even in the smallest of synchronicity. But to the perceptive one, a highly intuitive person understands that life is created by our own imaginations. Our thoughts create our reality, and our energy attracts our experience.

A highly intuitive person will quite often notice these meaningful coincidences through rapid thought manifestation and signs from the universe by way of symbolism.

1. Their Dreams

A highly intuitive person understands that dreams are the gateway to understanding themselves better. As it is only by knowing ourselves that we can truly become the masters of our reality.

dreamThrough our dream state we explore our own emotional depths, we work out problems to every-day life situations, and we connect to a higher level of consciousness where we gain insight on our own soul called journey, life purpose and collective evolution.

Highly intuitive people may regularly look to dream interpretation in order to decipher symbolism and may even keep a dream journal.

So how intuitive are you?

You may have noticed by this list, that the purpose of this article is to illustrate that we are all highly intuitive, but only if we choose to be. We all have an inner voice, and we can choose to listen to it or choose to ignore it. Each time you ignore it however, life becomes a little more difficult. The path becomes a little more steep and little less clear.

So choose to listen. Choose to trust yourself and choose to always follow your heart. May your journey always be guided.

by LJ Vanier, Team Spirit!
