Holographic DNA upgrade

Imagine that your DNA exists inside your mind’s eye. You can enter inside a room or a brilliant temple of light, if you wish, that contains the hologram of your DNA. You can picture it as a spiral of light, or a beautiful vortex, or even a spiraling staircase. Once you connect to the channel of your DNA, and can feel it pulsing inside you, then you are ready to work. Summon your higher self/Oversoul/God self, and ask for the dormant DNA to be gently reawakened and activated again. There may be layers of protection or gatekeepers that were put in place, but ask for these to be bypassed or removed, by the power of your soul and GOD/SPIRIT THAT I AM. See and feel your dormant DNA strands coming alive again, spinning and spiraling in joy, surrounded by light, straight from the source of all that is. You can then request a protective energy or a guardian being to be placed around your holographic DNA, that prevents any further tampering that does not serve your evolution. Do this as often as you like, to reinforce the activation. The more you do it, the stronger the effect.

Know that inside your DNA are many hidden doors that lead to abilities and channels that were once active, eons ago. These doorways were manipulated and deactivated by someone else. They were shut down to the extend that we forgot about them. HU-mans were meant to be much more than we are now. The divine original blueprint that human race was seeded with, was that of avatar-like beings who were free. The current condition of humanity is a curtailed version; many living unaware of their own potential, asleep, and in a controlled world that is nothing but free. We exist in a time when it has become crucial to our survival to reactivate our ancient, dormant DNA. Your DNA is a vessel and a vehicle of unimaginable riches.

There is a mass global movement happening at this time, sweeping over the planet, attempting to shut down further strands of the new human DNA that have been emerging and re-awakening for quite some time now. Therefore, it is important for us to enter inside our own holographic DNA and reactive it.

Many humans on the planet have chosen to not live up to their fullest potential at this time, and are willingly allowing the manipulation of their DNA. Those few that choose otherwise will be living on the perimeters of society. Their ability to travel and participate in many social activities will be highly limited via traditional means. But new modes of travel will soon emerge and some movement will be restored. There is hope and a new world that is emerging. But we have to co-create it, from within.

Rise up, on the ladder of your own DNA!

May You Recognize…

May you recognize in your life the presence,
power, and light of your soul.

May you realize that you are never alone,
that your soul in its brightness and belonging
connects you intimately with the rhythm of
the universe.

May you have respect for your individuality
and difference.

May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,
that behind the façade of your life,
there is something beautiful and eternal happening.

Yantras as Ancient Instruments for Evolution

Yantras are geometric forms of deities, planets, and principles of spiritual evolution, deriving from the ancient Tantric traditions of India. The earliest Yantras discovered date back at least 11,000 years.

Western dictionary definition for a Yantra is “an auspicious diagram used in meditation to help focus the mind“. The word Yantra roughly translated means ‘a vehicle‘ or ‘an instrument‘.

Yantras were originally created as vehicles for spiritual evolution, and liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth.

While mantras are verbal remedies used for healing and transformation, Yantras can be seen as their visual counterparts. For example, chanting a Lakshmi mantra may be used to attract prosperity into one’s life. A Lakshmi (Sri) Yantra may do the same thing. Yantras only use beneficial symbols that bring healing and help raise spiritual awareness. The shapes within Yantras are symbols that correspond to states of evolved human consciousness.

Tuning in with a Yantra opens the doorway to working with the deity and spiritual principle the Yantra represents. The Yantra then becomes an energetic portal that connects you with the creative forces of the Universe.

How to use Yantras

Sri Yantra painting by by Aleeiah available on Etsy.

Yantras are most powerful when meditated upon consistently for at least 7 days. This imprints the energy pattern of the Yantra into the conscious and subconscious mind. Start by focusing on the central point within the Yantra and allow your eyes to naturally adjust to the shape without removing your gaze from the Yantra. It is recommended to do this meditation for 15-30 minutes daily. You may also wish to chant a mantra corresponding to the Yantra you are working with.

Focusing on a Yantra helps calm the mind which makes it easier to focus your energy toward manifesting your desired outcome, be it healing, prosperity, a new relationship, or deepening your spiritual practice. In advanced stages of meditation with a Yantra it is possible to feel a merging in with the shape, or “becoming the Yantra itself”. The physical image of the Yantra is then no longer necessary, as one can evoke the energy of the Yantra and its powers within.

Yantras may also be used to balance the energy of a space, and to bring forth a host of beneficial effects. Vedic astrologers will often prescribe planetary Yantras as remedies for healing difficult planetary aspects in one’s birth chart, and inviting in more balanced and positive energy.

In the Hindu culture, Yantras are worshiped in puja ceremonies, with elaborate offerings of food, incense, mantra, and ritual protocol.

How to choose a Yantra

While Vedic Astrologers will often prescribe Yantras as remedies for appeasing challenging planetary aspects in one’s natal chart, the simplest way for westerners is to choose a Yantra based on intuition. If you feel drawn to a certain Yantra, then work with it. Most likely it is something you need. Secondly, you can choose a Yantra based on what you’re looking to create or bring into your life.

The Great Galactic Turning Point

We are in the midst of a massive evolutionary wave on the planet. There is a planetary alignment taking place in the heavens this year that has not happened in hundreds of years. This event is part of earth’s cyclical ascension program. Because you are here now, you knew this was coming and accepted the challenge to evolve faster than ever before.

If you have been living in a way that is not in alignment with the truth of who you are on a soul level, that is now being corrected. You are being re-tuned. The ego will kick and scream because it’s not a comfortable process. All that is redundant will peel away, and for some this happens almost overnight. We are forced to learn how to find new healthier resources, and live in respect of earth and its blessings. We are learning to restore right relationship with our inner and outer planes on earth. You can best assist this peeling process by going into surrender and witness mode more often. Let whatever goes, go.

Life on earth is a multi-dimensional boarding school. We are in here with all the different grades and classrooms, from kindergarten to realized beings. Naturally, chaos ensues. What is happening on the planet now is an accelerated physical-mental-emotional-energetic purification. This is a natural process of ascension, i.e going up in vibration. It is both fun and terrifying at times. But look beyond the turmoil and panic, and realize it is a temporary shedding process of dense energy. The current events that have been unfolding including this pandemic and economic collapse are the ancient smoke and mirror of politics. It is curiously timed with this galactic awakening call. I won’t go into the details of this age old story here, as my focus is to assist your awakening. If you are already aware you will understand that now is the time to make the best of this party. It is time to become who you really are.

When enough hearts awaken on the planet, a holographic grid is created that helps awaken the rest of humanity. This is why it is of utmost importance to meditate and do practices that help us be heart centered now. Sending your gratitude to the core of earth raises the vibration of the planet. Honor the earth for carrying you, for she is a living, breathing, energetic being. The rays of the sun are extra potent at this time in raising our vibration. Make sure you get at least 30 minutes of sun daily, more is better. This is designed to help your cells adapt to the new level of energy beaming at us. Connect with the earth with your bare skin while you are out and breathe deeply with gratitude. Nothing else is needed. Your body knows what to do. You can assist the process at this time by eating less and drinking more liquids. Eat foods that are not dense or hard to digest, avoid eating meat at this time.

These are high evolutionary times! Your light is needed now more than ever before in our lifetime. No more excuses for hiding or sharing your truth. If you are reading this article take it as a sign: you are being activated to your greater mission. Share your gifts. Your voice matters. Help raise the collective vibration on earth.

If you need support during this difficult time, I am here for readings and one-on-one support calls. My support offerings at this time include Life Purpose Readings, and Oracle card readings. delivered via Skype calls.

Wishing you abundant health and great awakenings!

In Existential/ Relationships

The Heart Contains All

Amidst recent heartbreak and despair, I prayed for some light to come through.. a higher vision, an understanding for why I was still undergoing so much suffering. Several months had passed since a tragic breakup but I felt unable to let go of the lingering pain of loss. It seemed like many lifetimes of suffering had coalesced into one, dismantling my life without a warning.

The answer came through a vivid dream. I was taken inside the heart and saw that nobody had ever left. All was happening simultaneously, beyond time.. like actors gliding through empty air, and the emptiness contained all. The suffering is a tool, although ultimately an illusion, created to help us remember that this play isn’t real. Inside the heart, all was one, and we were each other, throughout many lifetimes, never apart. There was nobody to abandon. No heartbreak and no pain. Only tremendous compassion and understanding that transcended all forms of suffering. The heart was all-knowing. There was nothing to attain, nothing to grasp. We were not two people hurting each other, but one omniscient being experiencing itself through many forms and costumes, like actors in a play.

As soon as I was outside the heart again, things would appear separate, and thoughts of suffering would emerge. The dimension of duality we live in most of the time, is a game of pain and pleasure, endlessly alternating.. but this is not the ultimate reality. There is a higher dimension, and this is where the heart lives, beyond all pain and pleasure. The experiences we take to be love on this holodeck, are nothing but tiny glimpses into the realm that is actually, love.

Did you know that you can go inside your heart, and it is also the heart of all — one cosmic heart?

Within this unconditional, non dual realm of love, there is no pain, no separation, no coming or going, and no identity. Thus, the heart cannot break. It is empty but contains ALL.

On What Remains..

“You possess only whatever will not be lost in a shipwreck.” Al-Ghazali.

Year after year you fulfill one desire after another, until you come to know that there is no satisfaction in fulfilling endless desires. Nothing in this world is ever enough. Desires fade. How to achieve happiness then if not by fulfilling desires? Is happiness being free of desire?

You have been walking around the labyrinth of God so many times you have forgotten your true name and where you came from. Now it’s a puzzle to find your way back. But there is no end to the labyrinth. It leads back to beginning.

This much I know: anything that comes or goes is not you. It has no form. It is hollow like a seashell. People appear, stay for a while, then move on. Relationships are not you either. We cannot build a foundation on anything that comes or goes. The only true investment is finding out who and what you are. What is your true nature? Who is writing this? Who is reading? The identities, stories, jobs, possessions, achievements, information you accrue, who you were yesterday.. all these things will not remain.

But time is running out you say.. I must have this or that before I leave this plane. Time is another game on earth that has no true identity. Beyond all this is formlessness, timelessness.. a sea of nothingness from where everything arises and falls.

You have come here for a reason.. That reason is to find out what remains.

Shamanism + Quantum Physics

shamanism and quantum physics connection

Many seemingly paranormal experiences in the non-linear world of Shamanism seem to closely correlate with Quantum physics discoveries. Shamans have been told to appear in multiple locations at the same time by using their luminous “double” bodies, materialize objects out of thin air, shape-shift or become invisible, commune with animal and plant kingdom, perform remote healing, along with countless other mind-bending skills.

According to Quantum physics, past and future are not separate, location doesn’t exist, the world only comes into existence once observed, and this thing we call reality is one of many, possibly infinite, parallel dimensions.

Stories of Shamans journeying between dimensions have been recorded for centuries. When a Shaman enters a non-ordinary state of consciousness to retrieve information from the spirit worlds, could it be that he or she is able to glimpse into the many parallel dimensions of existence, theorized by Quantum physicists?

In the teachings of Shaman Don Juan Matus and the Toltecs, people only perceive a limited view of the multi-dimensional reality we live in, according to their readiness, and level of consciousness. In other words, people only see what they are capable of seeing. The definition of a Shaman is someone who has acquired an expanded vista and is able to see beyond the veils of time and space, for the purpose of bringing forth healing and greater balance for the planet. A Shaman’s work is to interpret and utilize the energy of the multi-dimensional Universe, in order to restore wholeness where needed.

Mind The Matter Please

“The world appears to you so overwhelmingly real because you think of it all the time; cease thinking of it and it will dissolve into thin mist.”

– Nisargadatta Maharaj

One of the most groundbreaking findings in Quantum mechanics is that if you split matter into smallest possible pieces (called atoms), particles stop behaving like solid matter. These subatomic particles can then appear either as waves, particles, or a mysterious cloud of “potentiality”, while magically unbound by any particular location. All subatomic particles possess this type of shape-shifting ability.

To make things even more puzzling, when an electron (subatomic particle with a negative electric charge) isn’t being observed, it appears as a wave. The only time it takes a physical form of a particle, is when it is being observed. This theory has been further expanded into views of “quantum probability”, that still eludes many modern day scientists.

If matter is not solid, nor bound by time or location, as Quantum research suggest, the adept skills Shamans use no longer seem impossible.

An important pioneer and one of the founding fathers of Quantum physics, Danish physicist Niels Bohr, who received a Nobel Prize in 1922, stated that if subatomic particles only exist when observed, they cannot be classified as independent objects, nor separate from the observer.

Dreaming The World Into Being..

Alberto Villoldo writes in his book Courageous Dreaming: How Shamans Dream the World Into Being”:

“Physicists understand that in the quantum world of the universe’s smallest elemental parts, nothing is “real” until it is observed. But quantum events do not occur in the laboratory only. They also happen inside our brain, on this page, and everywhere around us. When you observe any part of this dream, the great matrix of energy, you can change reality and alter the entire dream.”

Quantum physics research suggests that consciousness is affecting matter, as we observe it. This concept closely correlates with ancient shamanic teachings, and particularly, the use of ritual practice in shamanism. When a shaman performs a ritual, it is for the purpose of interacting with the elements of creation; communing with helpful spirits, bringing forth transformation, and eliciting positive outcomes for the future.

Both Shamans and Quantum physicists know that everything we do, say, or think, is altering the fabric of reality. When we truly understand the implications of “dreaming the world into being”, we have the potential to become responsible conscious creators, or dreamers.

In the Shamanic cosmology, shared by many indigenous cultures around the planet, we are all co-creators of a collective dream-experience we call “reality”. Shaman elders teach that if we dream our world into being with loving kindness, for the benefit of all, we are creating heaven on earth, but when we dream from a place of fear, jealousy, or envy, we increase suffering in the world. This view is also shared by a sect of Tibetan Buddhism that teaches conscious dreaming as a tool for awakening, also known as Tibetan dream yoga.

Return to Wholeness

“Ultimate Unity throughout the cosmos envelops and surrounds all dimensions, measurements, laws, and tendencies. It fulfills and completes all potentials that unfold in joy throughout the Universe.”

– Quran, verse 112.

Einstein’s theory of relativity proposed that time and space are not separate, but part of a unified whole he referred to as time-space continuum. David Bohm, one of the most important figures in Quantum research, further expanded Einstein’s vision by saying that everything in the Universe is part of a continuum – everything is One.

In the world view of Quantum physics, all matter is interconnected in an unseen web of mysterious, collective intelligence. When looking even further down the rabbit hole, there appears to be a deeper order behind our level of existence that gives birth to the whole Quantum soup we experience as reality. Physicist David Bohm referred to this level as “the implicate order”.

Similarly, Shamans of the Andes and Amazon believe that we are all connected in an infinite fabric of creation. If we believe that we are separate from everything and everyone else, we only create conflict and suffering. It is only when we become aware of the underlying interconnectedness that we can begin to truly access our dreaming power, and participate in raising the consciousness of the collective dream.

Meaning of Master Number 22

Master numbers (11, 22, 33, 44, etc.) are double digits that are more charged and powerful than single digits. They point towards higher learning and spiritual mastery. More general information about master numbers can be found HERE.

22 is the number of the master architect, as well as peace and balance. It calls for building your dreams through unconditional service to others. 22 is considered to be the most influential number, and one with the most potential for achievement in the world. It is a number oriented towards both material and spiritual fulfillment.

22 is the ancient numerical value for a circle and therefore signifies completion; the zero point, the beginning and the end. Something significant will come to fruition under the vibration of 22. It could be a great series of art, a musical symphony, a new system of learning, etc. Success and attainment of the seemingly impossible becomes a reality with the master number 22. Great wealth can accrue under the vibration of 22 as well, especially when material resources are harnessed with spiritual insight. Working for selfish motives or personal gain will not work under the vibration of 22, as this number is a teacher of the moral principle of service to others.

Ouroboros

People with this master number in their charts are dream builders and spiritual architects who have incarnated to not only master something in their own lives, but to leave a legacy behind to benefit the masses. This kind of task can be daunting at times, and when 22 seems overbearing, the vibration can be experienced as its root number 4 – a much easier and more practical energy. The goal of number 4 relates to building in the material world, service, and success through hard work and persistence, whereas 22 wants to be a worldwide influence through lofty ideals and dreams built with co-operation and assistance from others. People with number 22 as one of their core numbers are philanthropists who aim to build a better world for all. Intuition, diplomacy, patience, balance, and compassion must be highly developed before 22 can realize and live up to its fullest potential. Ultimately, the master number 22 leads to awakening of the Divine love within.

Number 2

The number 2 on its own stands for relationships and balance. It is a feminine number of the peacemaker and indicates evolution primarily through relationship work. It also represents duality; male and female, the sun and moon, pain and pleasure. The goal of number 2 is to achieve harmony through relationship, and find peace through perfecting the art of balance. You can also find the master number 22 to be an amplification of the properties of 2.

Are you seeing a lot of 22?

It is time to master your reality! 22 can be a call to engineer your highest vision into reality. Because 22 totals to a 4, which represents the earth, the four corners of a building, and the 4 dimensions, it points towards material manifestation of some kind, and building of your dreams. Seeing a lot of 22 can also be a reminder from the universe to work on partnership and relationship matters.

Within 22 underlie the vibrations of numbers 4 (2+2=4) and 11 (22 /:  2 = 11). 22 is a higher octave of the number 11 – the number of the master intuitive. 4 acts as the grounding force behind these two master numbers, helping to anchor in and bring these two higher spiritual vibrations down to earth, and into reality.

Your Name Matters

“Nomen est omen” (Latin for name is an omen.)

Every letter, every word, and every name has a vibration, and we decode vibration via numbers. Every time you sign your name, or say your name, you leave a trace of your vibration. The name you were given at birth is especially revealing. Some call it the destiny number.  My favorite interpretation of destiny is: 75% karma and 25% free will. What this means in the context of your name, is that you are not entirely locked in to the vibration of your birth name. Many change their name or use nicknames. This in turn affects your energetic blueprint, and will certainly affect your life.

What if the current name you chose to use is a difficult vibration? It may mean you that have to work twice as hard to achieve your goals, make money, and be successful in what you do. Yes, you can sometimes overwrite challenging vibrations with your other numbers and free will, but it is hard work. Kind of like a fish swimming upstream all its life. Let’s say for example that your birth name totals to a master number, such as 22. This is a very powerful vibration that has the potential to not only accrue wealth, but affect masses of people. If you shorten your name and use a nickname instead, that vibrates to a less powerful frequency such as 4, you are diminishing your impact in the world, and creating unnecessary obstacles.

As a numerologist, one of my favorite amusements is to look at names of big companies, or famous people and calculate their numbers. Nearly every major company name that has had worldwide impact, has a potent number. Similarly, majority of world leaders have a name which vibrates to a power number.

Let’s decode some big names for fun!

Dalai Lama = 9

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela = 9

Edgar Cayce = 9

9 is the number of: the humanitarian, wisdom, unconditional love, service, the healer, and teacher. It is also the number of completing a karmic cycle – very fitting for these souls.

Barack Hussein Obama = 1

John Winston Lennon = 1

Sudhamani Idamannel (Hugging saint Amma’s birth name) = 1

Maruti Shivrampant Kambli (Nisargadatta Maharaj’s birth name) = 1

1 is the number of: leadership, legacy, success, innovation, front-runner, and the pioneer. This number is destined for fame and making a big mark in the world.

Many spiritual leaders, famous musicians, and politicians have names that total to a 1 or 9. Both numbers vibrate to worldwide success, massive influence, and leaving a legacy.

How about some big company names?

Microsoft = 1

Pepsi = 11

Mercedes Benz = 11

11 is a master number which can present some challenge but nevertheless attracts attention, leadership, and fame. All master numbers accentuate the base number vibration. As you can see from previous examples, 1 is a highly successful leadership vibration on its own. And 11 is 1 on steroids.

Changing your name is a more complex matter than simply choosing a number that is generally fortunate and powerful. It all depends what you are here to do, what you lessons are, and what your other numbers are. For example, if you choose a new name with a number that has nothing to do with your purpose, you are adding in a new vibration that may not serve your journey.

When I do a Numerology Reading, I look at all the different numbers in your chart, besides the total vibration of your name. There are many other numbers to consider, even the ones that are absent, called “karmic lesson numbers”. I then look at patterns and what all these numbers are doing together in your chart. If you are considering changing your name, and want to know how it will affect your life and the type of experiences you will draw in as a result, consider a Numerology Blueprint Reading. I am happy to decode your name and analyze any potential name change you are considering.

Message for Winter Solstice

“The forest responds equal to your call”

(Niin metsä vastaa kuin sinne huudetaan)

old Finnish proverb.

As a child I would often wander off deep into the woods by myself. Especially after it had snowed, and everything was pure stillness, bathed in brilliant white light. I had a habit of getting lost, and I remember many times when I went so deep into the woods that I lost all sense of time and place. I didn’t even remember who I was. My grandmother later explained it was because I had crossed ley lines, where the energy of the earth converged in such a way that it created a magnetic vortex of a sorts. Because we are electromagnetic beings, the vortex intercepted my magnetic field, resulting in loss of time, space, and memory. In an old Finnish dialect, she called it “to be hidden by the forest”. The way she really thought of it, was that a magical spell in the forest takes you over and you disappear.

It became a game to find these vortex spots.. terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. Inside the spell of the forest I had no fear, no worries, no self.. It was as if I was pure white snow, or the sky, or the forest itself.. I was everything and nothing.

The first few times it happened, I recognized that I had a choice to let the nothingness take over, or to resist and panic. I quickly learned that the easier way was the way of no resistance. I remember one time dropping on my knees in deep snow and praying for the way home after being heavily “vortexed”. It was close to dusk, and the night falls quickly in the deep north. A sense of desperation would take over. The only thing I could do was to trust and connect with this light deep within me that guides. I understood somehow that halfway trusting it would not cut it, I would have to completely surrender my will to higher will, and to the light within. I don’t recall how I got back home, but I always did.

This winter solstice, I wanna remind you to TRUST more. Trust the LIGHT within you that has brought you here. Trust that this light will take you back HOME. When you trust, the Divine responds, and opens new pathways of unimaginable beauty and guidance before you.

Overcoming Obstacles on the Road to Purpose

Ever seen this sign before? I bet you have. If you’ve been sincerely seeking your purpose, you’ve come across that feeling that all odds are against you, and there is no way in hell of getting to your destination – at least not in just one single lifetime. The truth is that realizing your purpose is a long and winding road. If knowing the route was easy, and there were no obstacles or crazy road signs like these along the way, I would not be working as a Life Purpose Investigator.

FOLLOW THE SIGNS OR TURN AROUND?

You are reading the signs correctly, but are not getting to your destination because there are karmic roadblocks; wounds and lessons causing delays on the road. You chose to work on certain core wounds before you entered this lifetime. These wounds contain the primary lesson(s) you are to master before you can fully realize your life’s purpose. In other words: your purpose is hidden in your wound. When you sincerely seek to live your purpose, you will encounter obstacles that point you towards addressing wounds that are there to be healed, before you can get on with your mission. The good news is that you have lots of time to arrive, an entire lifetime in fact. And when you do not arrive, you get to try again, in another way, another time, another life.

IDENTIFYING YOUR KARMIC ROADBLOCKS

Let’s say you are a medicine woman who has been studying with many great healers for years. You know that your mission involves having your own healing practice and being in your power as a sovereign creator-healer-woman. You finally open your own clinic and nobody shows up. Perhaps you still hold resistance about stepping into your power? Maybe a fear of being seen and recognized is still lingering there? Part of you wants to be seen while the other part wants to hide. A contradictory signal is sent out to the universe. Your business may ebb and flow, money doesn’t quite arrive, you start to doubt your mission and go back to your day job. This is a typical scenario on the path to purpose. The core wound for many healers and lightworkers is lack of self love and self worth (aka the wounded healer), that manifests in many disguises. When this wound is healed, then the roadblocks seem to magically dissolve, traffic is cleared, unicorns appear, and the Universe suddenly opens for you.

The Rough Formula For FINDING Your Life’s Purpose is:

Identify Your Wounds + Address Them  Do The Work  Persist  Try Again  Keep Going  Heal

⊧ Enter Your Purpose!

Three tools that are helpful along the way:

1. Knowing your purpose.

2. Dropping ideas about how you will get there.

3. Keeping an open mind.

In 99% of cases, the way to your purpose is not crystal clear, and the path never unfolds quite as you expect it to. Be willing to consider that what you thought was the way, is not the way. The law of free-will, your choices, pace of evolution, an unpredictable nebula at the center of the Galaxy, will surely all affect the journey. But it is not a hopeless or unguided road. There are celestial miracles, serendipity, soulmates, spirit guides, owls, teachers, and old friends, along this path to greet you.

To simplify things, the common purpose we all share is:

LOVE + HEAL + EVOLVE = ASCEND.

But there is work along the way there. My job is to help you recognize and remember your karmic roadblocks, that you chose to take on before you came here, so you can heal, and then fulfill your life’s mission. P.S If you believe in signs, this is one.

master number 33 meaning

33 is the number of “teacher of teachers”. This is a number that calls for service to humanity. It is a highly dedicated vibration, and people who carry this master number have chosen a life of service. This means sacrificing personal goals and ideals for the greater good.

Medicine Owl Turns 10!

The Humble Story of How Medicine Owl Began…

Yes, this website has been online for a decade!

Ten years ago I was living in central Mexico in a small mountain town with one suitcase of clothing and an old laptop. Fresh out of a divorce with nothing to hang on to, and in the middle of a potent existential crisis. My old identity was fading and I had no material possessions left as evidence of my previous life. The bank account was empty and I didn’t speak enough Spanish to save my life. For the third time in my life, I was single and homeless in a foreign country, with no friends or family to turn to. Everything I knew was gone. But deep down I felt that I was getting close to something real, and I had a tremendous amount of faith that carried me forward.

Because my heart was opened by faith I was able to summon what I needed quite rapidly. Although I had no money to rent an apartment, or even a single room, soon I was offered a temporary living space in an empty house by a kind fellow traveler on the spiritual path. Mil Gracias Pedro! In this sanctuary I began reconstructing my life, one small step at a time. By serendipity, the nearly empty house had amazing spiritual literature which I eagerly devoured. I also began to meditate. I remember eating nothing but potatoes for weeks but feeling grateful. The house was remote and getting to town and back by foot took hours, which limited my outings. I ended up spending several weeks at a time without seeing anyone or leaving the sanctuary. This allowed for my silence to deepen so I could more easily connect with my higher self for guidance.

I had no clue how to continue living or where to go next, so I prayed. One night before going to bed I prayed from a place of sincere desperation to be shown what my purpose is. That night my old friend, the Owl appeared. In dream-time, the Owl told me to start a website called The Medicine Owl and begin to share what I had learned through experience. When I woke up the next morning I thought the idea seemed utterly ridiculous and actually got up laughing. This was my purpose?! It was not the grandeur message I was expecting. But the command lingered loud and clear for days. I had nothing left and nothing to lose by going with it. So I opened my laptop and made a website for myself, something I knew how to do back then, coming from a decade of web design- a career which I had left behind.

My first few articles were about grounding, meditation, and the subconscious mind. I was searching for my writing voice. Staying anonymous for years allowed me to focus on letting the message come through. I experimented with channeled writing, also known as automatic writing, something I still use today. Most of all, I wanted to hear what the Owl had to say and what this Owl business was all about. Several years passed and I would occasionally write something and then disappear. I had no clue how to use the information that was streaming through. I already knew my mission was to teach and guide others. But how to survive in the material realm while doing this? I can’t say I’ve fully figured that out yet. 😂

Purpose is a trickster. We often wear many different hats, go through various careers, all the while training to become who we really are. It is not a straightforward path, and only time will tell. A lifelong puzzle is usually involved. As we mature and heal more of our stuff, we allow the purpose to naturally unfold. But it may not be quite what you expect! Here is a valuable pointer on purpose: find out what stays. When your life is stripped bare with no life preserver, no false identity, or material security, what remains?

So the story of Medicine Owl began in these humble settings. From my ruins a purpose emerged. It has not been an easy journey for this Owl. But I will not give up because I wholeheartedly believe that living a life of purpose is the only cure for the great existential heartache. I was born knowing this. I have no idea how my mission as the voice of Medicine Owl will present itself tomorrow or next week, but I am continuously willing to show up for the work, and that must mean something. Thank you for reading and being along for the ride!

A decade now on this colorful journey! In humble gratitude I bow for the medicine of the Owl.
