Happy 2017

Good Morning World! Happy 2017

I realized I didn’t much blog last year, at all! I did however write a book. I sent it off to several publishers just before mercury went retrograde in December 2016, fingers crossed I’ll be a published author soon.

My year definitely started off with an unusual twist. I usually spend the first day setting up my vision board for the new year. Last year I created a beautiful PowerPoint presentation that I transformed into a screensaver that changed every 15 seconds so I could watch it each morning and run through my affirmations while tapping them into my consciousness via my thymus.

This year I fell ill just as the new year was approaching and I was too sick to dedicate much time and energy to my visions. However, I did attempt to start several times but just couldn’t follow through. On January 2nd, I was taken away by ambulance because my throat closed and I couldn’t breathe. I lay in the hospital for hours, unable to sleep with the constant chatter of nurses, doctors and other sick patients. In my room the constant noise of machines spitting up of reports, beeping when my breathing changed, blood pressure pump starting up every 15 minutes, heart monitor, etc. was not conducive to sleep.

I lay there trying to block out the obtrusive florescent lighting and crazy sounds. I began thinking of my health, I’m a fairly healthy person, heck I’m in the business of keeping people healthy. I hike daily for one to one and a half hours in an old growth forest filled with copious amounts of oxygen. I came to the conclusion I was simply cleansing and purging from the year. 2016 was a challenging year, not only for me but for many of us.

I sold my house, ended a twelve-year relationship and moved to a city where I didn’t know anyone on Vancouver Island. I followed my guidance and ended up here in Nanaimo, BC. In fact, I completed several relationships, some with family that broke my heart, some with friends that also broke my heart and some with students, again heart breaking. As I write, I realize just heart breaking 2016 was for me and I am suddenly overwhelmed by my strength and endurance. Listening to that little voice and following our divine plan is not always easy, but I know something awesome will come of it all.

So, yes, I have lots of cleansing to do. I woke up today feeling alive, spiritually alive for the first time since I moved here in August. I have been loving being in nature every day and in constant gratitude, but something just didn’t click. It was like I lost my mojo. I was still following spiritual practice but not whole heartedly.

I started today by sitting in bed with a awesome dark roast cup of coffee in one hand and my journal in the other. Maggie my little schnoodle lay curled up at the end of the bed, opening an eye and looking at me now and then. I pondered what to do and decided to activate my Merkabah. I decided to take several holograms out into the time space continuum for clearing and healing. I chose a focus (my book getting published) and saw what turned up. The holograms that showed up surprised me; Success, Fame, Acknowledgement, Financial Freedom and Creativity. I brought them to the time space continuum and cleaned them up, next to Cosmic Consciousness and filled with them gold, then off to Source and added to each what they asked for.

Success wanted to be connected to the other holograms, Fame wanted influence to assist the masses, Acknowledgement wanted rewards of sorts, Financial Freedom wanted ability to assist and contribute and Creativity wanted to be inspired by Source to assist the collective consciousness to move forward. I filled them all with what they required and brought them back to my physical body. Then I just sat there just thinking, “Huh”.

Next, I decided to pull a card from my deck, WISDOM OF THE HIDDEN REALMS – by Colette Baron-Reid & Jena Della Grottaglia … to decide what my focus for the month should be. I got the Ice Queen.

8321c43a55241cfcc02d3eb576068460

“Ice Queen  ~  28  ~

ideas preserved, non-action, entitlement

The Ice Queen has come to block your movement for your highest good.  Let your ideas be preserved until later.  You can thaw them out and use them at another time when they will best serve.

The realm of the Ice Queen is the place of nonaction, and now is a perfect time to take a look at how far you’ve come and to ask yourself for a reclarification of your highest goals.

Not all plans can be accomplished at this moment.  In fact, putting them on ice allows for the perfect timing later on.  Don’t be too hasty in trying to reach your goal.  An even better one will present itself if you surrender and spend the winter with the Ice Queen.

Perhaps too, you are trying to do too many things at once.  This is a good occasion to choose only one thing to focus on and let the Ice Queen put the others in the deep freeze until a more appropriate time.  She’ll let you know when it’s time to let them thaw.”

Wow, it suddenly dawned on me. I try to do too much! Like in a big, huge way too much. Take last years’ vision board for instance, it was 33 pages. I must be insane, make no wonder my life went into turmoil! How can one person expect to do or change so many things and have life purr along without consequence? So, I stopped, and chose to focus on what I had just done, my Merkabah activations. I will continue with them throughout January.

I hopped out of bed, thrilled with myself for not adding too much to my plate and began preparing some food. I do tend to eat strange things for breakfast so if this might sound weird. I chose a bunch of spinach and a half of left over chicken breast from yesterday. I just put the spinach in the pan right from the sink after rinsing it so I didn’t need oil. Once it was half cooked I sliced up my chicken placed it on top and added some miso gravy. I chose a smaller plate than normal and instead of putting it all onto the dish, I took two thirds.

As I sat down, I could tell a shift had occurred. I decided to become the observer and watch. I began with a prayer of gratitude than began to eat. I made a conscious choice to put my fork down after each bite. I made eating a meditation, I felt my food. The texture, the taste, the sensation of my body accepting this nutritious meal. I took my time, chewed and finished each mouthful completely before shoveling in the next bite. No distractions, no TV, no music, no reading, just me and my food. In that moment, I made the commitment to eat all my meals like this from now on. No more shoveling food in to fill the hunger between clients or activities, no more eating on the run, no more reading at the dinner table, just me honouring the food and its healing effects on my body.

There is a minimum of eight levels of consciousness required for this choice alone.

  • Give gratitude while preparing food
  • Take only 2/3 of what is prepared
  • Make a prayer of thanks to the elementals beings who provided the food (vegetables, fruits or animals)
  • Remove all distractions, TV or reading/writing
  • Take a bite and chew it, feel it and taste it, then finish it (3 things)
  • Take another bite and do the same until complete

Then there was my second epiphany for the morning regarding doing too much. If my only vision for the year was say, health, what would that include? Well there’s the element of food which includes healthy choices, cooking styles, preparation and how to eat healthy. Then there’s activity, fitting in time, which type of activities support your body type, regularity and taking care of your post work out body with stretching and body rolling. Then there’s supplementation, making sure your nutritionally sound and taking the appropriate supplements for your body type based on your food and activities. Then there’s getting out and having fun and being fulfilled, that is critical to our health. What about balance?

My God, making one choice, just to be healthy includes changing our consciousness about literally dozens of things!!! No wonder so many people fail their new year’s resolutions. I’m pretty sure my vision board this year will only have a 3 items on it for 2017. Those alone will morph into dozens of positive modifications … yup, I’m sure glad the Ice Queen showed up this morning.

I’d like to end my first blog of the year with a video for you all, blessings…carol

“The Power” and the Tipping Point

This year when I was making my Christmas Card I realized I haven’t written much at all and figured I better get something on paper; or the computer.

I listened to the audio book “The Power” at the beginning of the year and set an intention to be more positive than fear based or negative and to reach a 55% tipping point of love. I set out by looking for my triggers, the small thought processes that most of us don’t consider and well, it didn’t take long for me to identify a few. If you are looking to reset your feelings and energy level, “The Power” will help you do just that.

8579016

So somehow bitching about some of the challenges we face and focusing on the conspiracies behind high gas prices, the cost of new homes in the Vancouver lower mainland or our plummeting dollar just holds so much negativity it’s not worth going there.

I decided to share some of the solutions I came up with that might help you do some shifting of your own. Listening to the book, reminded me of things that I already know, but it also got me excited about creating shifts and experimenting with the concepts. Those of you who know me, realize I don’t just read something and believe. I am a “prove it” kind of gal. My life is usually has several experiments going on at once. It’s how I learn, prove theories, grow, adapt my work and improve.

The first thing I did was create a vision board that had affirmations and photos that I put on my desktop. The slides change every  seconds which is just long enough for me to say the affirmation and feel what I am creating.

So I began to observe. Trying to remain in a state of love 24/7 is quite challenging in our time. The pace of everyday life is faster and with that comes more triggers. As I observed myself and my thoughts in certain situations, I realized that standing in line-ups generated a ton of negative thoughts. Not bad ones, but negative all the same. The idea of reaching a greater tipping point of love is to be love. I found myself thinking things like:

  • “I always choose the slow line.”
  • “Doesn’t anyone work, why are they all shopping now?”
  • Judging what I consider to be others poor food choices.
  • Focusing on screaming children and wondering how much sugar they were jacked up on.
  • Wondering what took people so long to pack their groceries.
  • …and….and….

So it hit me, yikes this is all so negative and judging, WHAT…I needed a new strategy.

  1. So now when I am forced to stand in line, I do several things. I begin going through my gratitude list, starting with the fact that I have the time and money and privilege to be in a store buying what I need or want.
  2. I smile and begin sending love and blessings to those around me.
  3. I chat to those little screaming tikes and get them laughing, giving the parent a break.
  4. I practice random acts of kindness if possible.
  5. I send grace and blessings to those who appear to be in need.

Turns out my shopping experiences are much more pleasant and I meet some pretty interesting people now.

There are 3 quotes from “The Power” that correspond with what I’m doing and they are:

  • “Life isn’t happening to you; life is responding to you.”
  • “Many people don’t know about the power of good feelings, and so their feelings are reactions or responses to what happens to them. They have put their feelings on automatic pilot, instead of deliberately taking charge of them.”
  • “Every single second is an opportunity to change your life, because in any moment you can change the way you feel.”

One of my other triggers is driving, and I do believe that to be one for many of us, lol. It’s that same thing for me about time, and business. I live in one of the fastest going cities in Canada; last time I read the statistics, Surrey acquires 1800 new residents a month, yes that’s right, a month! And you got it, they are all not as good drivers as me, hahaha. knowing the driving experience can thrust me into a negative spiral is 3/4 of the battle. Now when I get in my can I repeat these words, “I have time, I can enjoy a relaxing experience in my car.” I let people in line, I focus on kindness for new drivers, after all I was one too, I sing, I do my affirmations and I get where I’m going in record time feeling terrific. I’m still not perfect, but I’m at least 70% better.

Let’s see, another area I chose to change was how I felt about paying for things. Instead of focusing on, “I shouldn’t buy this, I don’t really need it, I should save my money, I can’t afford this, blah, blah, blah.”

I choose to say, “I have more than enough money for the things I desire and I make great buying choices.” and “I am grateful that money flows to me from so many places, sources and people.”  And…now it does!

So remember, one of the secrets of having the life you want is by tipping the scale toward love and away from negativity. When anything good happens to you in your day, give thanks. It doesn’t matter how small it is, say thank you.

These are just a few examples of what I changed up, there are more of course; in conclusion, I would have to say that my experiment on tipping the scales more toward love was successful and made an obvious difference in my life.

Recapitulation

Recapitulation is a method of recovering the power and energy that we have lost or given away to people, places, and things. This technique recognizes that we have luminous energy “filaments” or aka cords extending from ourselves to others. These connections or aka cords form when we direct our attention and energy outward toward something or someone else. They are also formed when others place their attention and energy on us. Such connections often involve some mutual intent or agreement between ourselves and others. It is the objective then to recognize and inventory these energy connections, decide which ones to keep or cultivate, and which ones are not in our best interest. We can then manage our energy connections, stop parasitic energy drains and recover stagnant energy, freeing our energy bodies and becoming more fluid and mobile.

Recapitulation is the process of calling back energy we have exhausted from past, thoughts, actions or deeds. This process is a self-directed discipline or technique that enables an us to reclaim and repair damage to our energy bodies. It can include the damage and energy drain that comes from soul loss or soul fragmentation, mental complexities, emotional attachments, addictions, entities in our energy field; living or deceased and psychic attacks. To recapitulate entails recalling the people we have had experiences with, the places we have been, and the emotions, thoughts and feelings associated which each. We begin from present day and travel back down out timeline to our earliest memory.

Recapitulation it is not a cure all, it is a process that heals and extinguishes hot spots in our emotional bodies. The great thing about recapitulation is that it is practiced on your own. Taking responsibly for one’s own healing is, empowering for most of us. Recapitulation can benefit everyone and is based on energy work rather than analysis or talk therapy. I find that this process combines well with other healing modalities such as shamanic soul retrieval, emotional release work, Reiki, etc.

This recapitulation process was initially described in The Eagle’s Gift by Carlos Castaneda and later refined by Victor Sanchez.

The technique below was derived from those described by these authors and new information I channeled, so as with anything new modifications have been made based on my guidance.

The Recapitulation Lists

The first step is to make a list. The list is primarily of the meaningful events of your life. It is intended to direct one to remember and relive past events, to help us recover hidden memories and to help us discern what the significant events of our life really are. A few of the types of events to include in the list includes:

  • Agreements or commitments that you made with yourself, family or friends that you did or did not keep and you still hold a strong memory of them
  • Agreements or commitments that you made with your religion or God
  • Every sexual experience you’ve ever had
  • Events and situations in which you felt shame or embarrassment
  • Items or people you have lost and can’t get over
  • Thoughts, feelings or memories that you hide from others
  • Situations when you sabotaged or betrayed yourself
  • Times or events where you have been cruel to animals, plants or people
  • Negative people that you want out of your life
  • Events the you recall compromising a part of yourself
  • Events that caused you fear
  • Situation or relationships which resulted in emotional pain
  • Times you felt strong emotions such as abandonment, loneliness or rejection
  • Negative situations that you want out of your life
  • Major illnesses that you have suffered and still have emotional ties to
  • Time that make you angry, frustrated and resentful
  • Legal issues you have faced that didn’t go your way

Healthy relationships with friends, family members and others are not something that you need to retrieve energy from or sever the ties with. However, vows, oaths and promises all bind our intent, so from that point on, our actions, feelings and thoughts are consistently directed toward fulfilling or maintaining those commitments regardless of whether or not we remember having made them. As children, we often make vows and become bound to them even though we no longer remember making them. These impulsive pledges of childish devotion and eternal love can cost us our freedom in the present. If you are like me and have that special someone you wanted to be friends forever with, this could be something to recapitulate especially if you decided to become blood brothers or sisters with them. Unless we deliberately retrieve our energy and our original intent and them, that energy can never rise freely to be expressed in the present.

You are not looking to recapitulate trivial details, we all have enough to do without worrying about small insignificant events . You are looking for events and experiences that hold a lot of unresolved energy. Remember that the purpose of living on this plane is to gain experience, make choices, learn from choices and acquire wisdom and understanding. Recapitulation is not supposed to replace or be a substitute for our process, it is meant to be used as a healing process, to correct the effects of injuries to our energetic body.

When you recapitulate you may feel the long stretchy fibers that extend out from your solar plexus. These are the conductors that will allow the energy to return to your being. In order to recapture our strength and unity, we have to recapture this energy that we sent out into the world. You will begin to feel the energy oozing back into your body instantly. Some people can get dizzy or nauseous at times, this soon stabilizes.

Things you should know:

  1. If you receive an insight or memory that is not in the sequence of 5 year cycles, go ahead and recapitulate that memory next, it’s important to follow the energy streams that your receive.
  2. For women, it is extremely important that you start by recapitulating all men you’ve ever had a sexual encounter with. For women, this is where the bulk of our energy is caught. Men leave specific energy lines plugged into the body of a woman. These energy lines are designed to sip our energy. Women feed men energetically through the filaments they leave behind at an etheric level. This is one of the reasons men return again and again to the same woman, to maintain their source of energetic sustenance. This is true even is the sexual experience wasn’t intercourse.

Recapitulation Instructions:

  1. Create a circle around yourself using crystals or candles to define an energetic boundary for your process. Make yourself comfortable by sitting comfortably in a chair or on a pillow.
  2. Start by making a list of people , places or situations during the past 5 years that you have been giving energy too, or vivid memories and feelings you have about them.
  3. To begin, do and “I AM Presence” connection and the Karmic Board and your guides to assist you in reclaiming yourself.
  4. If you know how to activate your Merkabah, this will amplify the technique, and it can be done regardless of whether or not you are familiar with this tool.
  5. Extend your little and index fingers, then make a circle by touching your thumb to the tips of the remaining fingers. This will act as a signal to attract the attention of life-force and allow it to enter the body through the energy lines in the finger tips. ApanaMudra-hand
  6. Visualize or feel the memory you are about to recapitulate as clearly as possible. Put yourself slightly above the experience. Imagine gathering all your energy from the experience into a ball.
  7. Turn your head to the left, inhale threw your nose as with the thought intention: I CALL MY SPIRIT BACK. The energy ball will flow into you at that instant.
  8. Exhale out your mouth as you turn your head to the right and release any emotions or thoughts associated with the experience, such as anger, rage, guilt. Your thought intention is: I RELEASE YOU WITH LOVE & FORGIVENESS.
  9. Repeat this process until your energy has returned to you fully and it is cleared of all negativity.
  10. When you feel complete, face center, inhaled, hold your breath and make a quick turn of the head left to right with the thought intention: SO BE IT, IT IS DONE. Return to center, exhale, this will break the ties, contracts and agreements completely.
  11. Repeat Numbers 2-6 until your list is complete.
  12. Make a list of the next 5 years and start the process again. Continue until you get to your earliest memories.

During your recapitulation work, other memories or events will surface. Although they may not be in chronological order, go ahead and clear them if they turn up. Sometimes one memory or feeling can have strong aka cords in another timeline or be attached to another event.

I started by doing  five years at a time each week. I got up early to do it first thing in the morning. I found that as I did it other events or circumstances would pop into my head, so I recommend keeping a pen and paper with you to remember them all.

This is a process that takes time and commitment. I promise that if you invest in getting your spirit back  your vitality, life force and creativity will all return to you and your life will be soooo much more rewarding and present.

Enjoy the journey,

Carol

 

To: Vilcabamba With: Love and Gratitude

Wow, I can hardly believe I’ve been home from Ecuador for 22 days and haven’t blogged one thing about my trip. I guess there is so much to say, so many experiences to share and so many energies to describe I really didn’t know where to begin.

And then, just like magic it all came flooding in this evening after coming home from a much needed yoga class.

The Place: Healing Movements Yoga Centre     or on   Facebook

It has proven to be my sweet oasis, a safe and healing place that allows me to nourish my body and being on so many levels.

The owners are loving, kind, nurturing and conscious. They have worked hard to create a sacred space where we join together as a community to learn one of the oldest, most powerful and sacred teachings of all time.

It’s the perfect space for those with extensive knowledge of various healing modalities, meditation and yoga, yet comfortable for newcomers who are ready to enter a path of spirit development and de-stress their lives.

1472781_660413780646841_616151370_n

The Instructor: Patricia.

A breeze of fresh air. I peek up and see that she watches the entire class, paying close attention to their body, breath, life force and movement, all while teaching and holding the energy for each person to receive exactly what they require. Magnificent!

Patricia

As I lay in Shavasana at the end of the class in complete gratitude, in comes “spirit” with a message. “Gift your necklace to Patricia”. The necklace is made with a tagua nut seed and crushed rhodochrosite crystal inside. It has kind of a hipster look, not something I’d normally wear but once I put it on, wow! I’m like, “WHAT…I just wore it for the first time today and I fell in love…You gotta be kidding!”

It is said that the meat of the tagua nuts and it’s seeds have the strength and intelligence of an elephant, thus natives of South America call it vegetable ivory. Because of its sanctity and healing properties, tagua has occupied an important place in every aspect of life.

Indigenous healers use tagua to replenish vitality and cure diseases caused by low energy and a weak immune system. It has a direct bearing on our bone marrow.

Tagua corresponds to the sun and the energy corresponding to the solar plexus, and therefore is especially good for enhancing vitality, boosting the immune system, and cultivating will power and determination…Nice, right!

My mind immediately went through all the back and forth arguing and detachment stuff that comes with surrender, then I finally chose to follow my guidance. Something felt off, like it wasn’t a piece she would wear, so after everyone left, I asked her if she would wear a necklace like this, and much to my delight and confusion she said NO. Delighted that I wouldn’t have to give it up, confused about why my guides were telling me to give her this necklace.

Maya was in the car, hungry and ready to go, so I told Patricia that when I got home, I would dowse to see if there was a crystal in the piece she needed. I made it to bed around 10:00 or so and as I began my evening rituals, in the back of my mind, still wondering what was going on, I was given a very cool message…”It’s not the energy of a crystal Pat needs…It’s Vilcabamba”.

And that my friends is how my instructor Patricia inspired me to finally write this blog, here goes…

It’s hard to explain the magical energy of a little town called Vilcabamba in Ecuador. I will start by saying that I have yearned to go to South America for over 30 years, so finally getting to go was a dream come true.

Ecuador, has a wide-range of scenery. Hills and mountains, huge cities and quaint towns, interesting wildlife, amazing flowers and trees, big bugs and beautiful coastlines with wide sandy beaches. I was so fortunate to have seen so much of the country. Transportation in Ecuador is inexpensive and so convenient. You can sit and enjoy the view while others are at the helm. I will blog about other parts of Ecuador in my next blog, for now let’s talk healing.

Nestled on the edge of this remote town sits an oasis, Vilcabamba. I found Vilcabamba to have a deeply spiritual and unique international community that thrives in this “Valley of Longevity.” From a spiritual perspective it is the hard to explain but the energy there is different, it’s a feel good kinda place, the kind that makes you want to be more yourself, more present and in tune with source.

In metaphysical terms:

  • The veil is thinner, so if feels as though you are closer to spirit
  • There are orbs everywhere
  • Thought forms manifest especially fast
  • Synchronicity is unstoppable
  • Almost everything is spirit directed
  • The energy field is clean and pristine
  • It touches a specialness deep within you
  • It transcends boundaries of all types
  • It embraces and connects you on many levels
  • It’s like giving yourself the biggest most loving hug ever

After travelling to over 19 countries and living in several of them, I am confident in saying, “there’s magic in the air”, quite literally in Vilcabamba. I have seen a ton of ET activity and multi-dimensional cross over’s, still, nothing like this.

There’s a cosmic force and a new kind of ET activity happening there. One with a Conscious Rising that is unique and brilliant one that changes perspectives and lives very quickly. I met some great new friends; David and Liz (she is Ecuadorian) who live in Vilcabamba. They say “It’s high energy that will swallow you whole, chew you up and spit up out”. So if you’re looking for change, to get closer to the Divine and really work on yourself and many aspects of your being, this is the perfect place to be. The individuals there, truly are “meant to be there” and a very interesting cast and crew I might add.

I have often wondered how little old me could reach more people, share more love, raise more awareness, somehow open a door for the masses to experience gifts they may never discover on their own. Well, the energy of Vilcabamba allowed me to do just that. I met soooo many awesome people, and one in particular who touched my being and inspired an aha moment…Nelson Denman

Remember the unstoppable synchronicity and transcending boundaries of all types I mentioned? It turns out that with a little support from the cosmos, added with a sparkle or two of fairy dust and an open heart, Nelson and I co-created a simple and effective way to raise the consciousness of groups of people. How you ask? Through Reiki; I had the pleasure of initiating Nelson into Reiki.

He is currently writing and composing a folk opera entitled: “The Rights of Nature.” Nelson is an accomplished musician and cellist. He is spiritual, with real heart and creative inspiration running through his being. If you follow the link you can stay up to date with his project.

Nelson’s accomplishments are many, he performs and teaches guitar, bass, violin and cello and has collaborated musically with Paul Winter, Larry Littlebird, Peter Kater, Robert Sequoia, Consuelo Luz, Richard Russell and many others. He plays cello on the CD of the World Premiere of Voyages by Paul Cisze. He has completed 2 CDs of music: Earth Doctor, The Chakra Mode Cycle, and is working on Slack Key Cello.

Now every time Nelson plays to an audience or anyone, that Reiki energy is going out there with his intention, passion and music…Well Done! I was also guided to activate and initiate his three fold flame (Love, Power and Wisdom) so that when others hear his music theirs will also be activated. As Vilcabamba and Nelson magic would have it, Dominique and I were the first to receive and experience the gift of Nelson’s cello and new vibration that day. How enchanting. I so encourage you to hear him play.

Vilcabamba inspires you to touch a specialness deep within yourself in remarkable ways:

  • I had the pleasure and company of two amazing individuals, then I taught them (David and Liz) how to activate their 3 breath Merkabah, now they can really shake things up in town, lol.

  • I learned how much commitment is needed to deliver great photographs from Paul, not many people can snap a great picture of me. Kudos Paul.

  • Most importantly I re-connected with Dominique, a beloved friend who I hadn’t spent real quality time for years., It too was magical in many new and powerful ways. Wow, did we do loads of spiritual work and have tons of fun!

Dominique and I stayed at a place called Rumi Wilco. It was a 15-20 minute walk to the centre of Vilcabamba. Rumi Wilco is an Ecolodge that provides a human habitat within the only remaining semi-natural protected setting in the valley. We stayed in one of the River Cabins which are located in the midst of nature, a healing river and surrounded with 12 trails to explore. The cabin was the perfect size for us, with a well equipped kitchen and the most comfortable beds you can imagine.

Every morning we wake up to the sound of the river and songbirds in the background. We had a gorgeous path through the forest daily, encounters with donkeys and cows, a river filled with quartz crystal, cool stone walls and domes in the middle of the forest and vibrant butterflies… fairly normal stuff for our daily trek to town and back.

Vilcabamba, is remarkably free from most kinds of pollution: electromagnetic, air and water. No planes overhead dropping chemtrails on the population, either. The ground water is amazingly clean because it’s recharged from rainfall on the nearby Podocarpus National Forest, where water flows down into the valley on a regular basis. It creates a unique situation for several types of healing. This leaves the air remarkably clean and energetically perfect for a great night’s sleep. I haven’t slept that well in 12 years…seriously.

Another grand design and wonderful manifestation was the convenience of our friend Paul, staying in town at Le Rendez-Vous. A quaint, beautiful hostal with gardens and mountain views from each adobe style room. After our 20 min trek through the forest with backpacks on in the heat, we were grateful to have access to Paul’s space. We were always welcomed with a warm smile and a glass of water. We had access to his Wi-Fi so we could skype with loved ones and change from our sneakers and damp clothes into our flip flops and sundresses before heading to the main square. Thanks Paul!

Practically every restaurant around Vilcabamba serves fresh, raw fruit juices. Organic food is everywhere. I have to say that the environment energetically supports self development and spiritual awakening, whether you see it coming or not. The people in Vilcabamba are relaxed, welcoming, helpful, considerate and oh ever so interesting.

Food production in the Valley of Longevity is so easy and abundant that it’s almost hard to believe. In mere weeks, you can grow a huge garden full of vegetables from the rich topsoil. In a few months, you can grow papayas, figs, babacos and berries. And…believe it or not, in a few years, you could have your own orchard of oranges, macadamia nuts, jungle almonds, noni fruit, avocados and much more if you wanted to. This is one of the reasons that Dominique is thinking of selling her beautiful home in Salinas, to buy a farm in Vilcabamba. We were lucky enough to experience some great fresh fruits and veggies while staying with Elizabeth (Liz) and David, they have amazing gardens, fruit trees and animals. I know it is a lot of work, and Liz certainly loves it and puts her heart and soul into it daily.

Dominique and I did most of our own cooking. We did our big shop in Loja 4 minutes from town before we arrived. It was hilarious watching 7 bags of groceries and two suitcases being packed in a wheel barrel through the bush to get to our cabin. The Sunday markets, both in Vilcabamba and Malecatos are amazing, check out the photos from Paul below.

The essence of Palo-Santo loomed everywhere, in shops and from venders in the square. Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal.  In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”.

It is an uplifting scent that raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and allows for a deeper connection to Source.  It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity (sniffing it now as I write, lol) and brings good fortune to those who are open to its Magic.  It is burned in ceremonies by Shamans and Medicine people for its energetically cleansing and healing properties similar to Sage. I am so grateful that I brought some home with me, the smell is a reminder of the energy and essence of Vilcabamba.

Wow, writing this blog and emailing my new friends, makes me want to move there…No wonder Pat’s spirit wants to connect with the vigour and power of Vilcabamba…who wouldn’t?

I’m glad to have so many reminders that hold this sacred energy with me. I asked the river for a rock, it surprised me with two. I asked Mother Earth for some clay and she gave me a wonderful stone buried within the clay. I asked for cleansing I received Palo-Santo. I asked for strength and vitality and I received a beautiful tagua nut seed necklace. All these gifts hold the energy and magic of the “Valley of Longevity” within them and reminders of the heart connections I made that will forever remain in my soul.

Respecting Traditions while Embracing the Future

What is tradition? It is a belief, ritual or behavior passed down within a culture or civilization with symbolic meaning that connects with our origins in the past.

Traditions often persist and evolve for thousands of years. They lay the foundations and structures of how we live, express and experience this reality. One theory of social science is that tradition is often contrasted with innovation of entire societies. This contrast in thinking can be confusing. We are currently experiencing the expansion  of social change, one where societies progress from being traditional to being more current or progressive.

Unifying traditional  beliefs, objects or customs implemented or believed in the past, with enlightened and accelerated views and information in the present assist us to change paradigms,  breaking the bonds that confine us.

The problem for many is that while they are attempting to create new paradigms they have become somewhat flippant of past traditions. Some individuals are saying that the Master of the past are set in their ways, that the information is out dated.

As a teacher and spiritual coach I believe in setting up strong basic structures and foundations to build on. For instance, A basic structure such as the 7 major energy centers in the chakra system, will always remain a foundation. The traditional colours and the new energies they bring, will change and new ones will open.  The Blue Ray will always carry the energy of The Will of God, although the expression of that Ray and how it activates us may change.  Archetypes will always be created by the mass consciousness, however those archetypes will change and evolve into new ones as we begin to change our paradigms.  DNA will always be contained in the human form, although it’s components, form and expression will evolve to match our consciousness.

I believe that there are many of us who strive to change our current paradigms and be the “Oneness and Love” that the spiritual realm offers us. In order for us to change our paradigms and those of society we must first begin to change the neuro pathways in our brains that dictate behaviour and emotional response. Anyone who channels knows  the fasted way to change those pathways in not by creating  new ones, because creating a totally new neuro pathway can take years. However re-routing the old neuro pathway patterns, creates new realities. This is the reason we see paradigm shifts taking so long on a mass consciousness level.

If we respect and honour tradition, while embracing newness we begin to re-route our pathways. After all the foundations of our bodies and energy systems have supported us for eons. I like to think of it as doing a renovation. We often keep the foundation and upgrade or build onto it with innovative technologies and/or modern decor.

For those out there saying, “the Masters are set in their ways and the information is old”, I say, “interesting, that’s not my experience.” The information and teachings I receive from the Masters has changed and evolved considerably over the years. It was Kwan Yin and her disciple Beishu who provided me with the information and techniques to chakra colours over 14 years ago which I called The Beishu Method ™. Then St. Germain who taught me how to do paradigm shifts and create the new technology in Magic Max XL. It is St. Germain and another Master (who will remain nameless for now) who is teaching me a new technique that moves the double helix DNA encoding to a triple helix and instils new neuro pathways by re-routing the old ones through evolving archetypal patterns…cutting age stuff and new information needed for our conscious evolution!

The Masters continue assist us to adapt and evolve to new energies, they have after all made their ascension and as such have an advanced perspective which is not egocentric. In other words, “been here, done that.” Lived on the earth plane and acquired complete knowledge, skill, techniques and disciplines that benefited them in the ascension process. Are they the only ways? No, they are simply foundations of truth that can be built upon.

Remember the words, “I am that I am”?  You can call it your God-Self, Creator-Self, Divine-Self or I Am Presence whatever you choose, the concept and foundation is still the same it is only the words and or view of that aspect of self that has changed. It seems to me that, old concepts are simply being re-labeling and presented in a new way, then passed on as “current” while discrediting our foundations and traditions.

In my humble opinion, if we want to receive information from those who have come before us, and laboured to assist humanity in not only finding by simply choosing enlightenment, disssing them is not the best approach. By showing honour and respect to the Masters and the fundamentals they have strived to initiate, we open ourselves to becoming vessels on new knowledge, information  and up dated tools that assist our evolution in a broader way than our egos can see.

As one of my precious clients said to me this morning, you wouldn’t re-invent the wheel would you? So my question to you is, has the wheel been re-invented or simply modernized and remodeled to be more efficient for the changing times?

 

Respectfully Yours,

Rev. Carol Lefevre

Should you trust your Health Care Provider?

Greetings,

OMG, have I got a tale for you…

Some of you might remember the issues I had with my Hep C Specialist, from my previous blog: Can our Medical Professionals just do their jobs please!

To re-cap quickly…I have gone through a staggering amount of unnecessary and uncomfortable situations during the past several months of treatment. He has made countless errors and as a result I simply cannot trust him with my health, Hep C treatment or my life!

As you all know, my viral load came back Zero in only 8 weeks of therapy…I Believe….and I Am Healthy, Strong and Transformed! (Sept 23rd). The doctor and pharmaceutical company would have you believe it was the medication that did the healing,  I am here to tell you that I worked harder on healing myself because of my lack of trust and faith in my specialist. I was Divinely guided as to how to proceed with the correct dosages for me and would release the virus the fastest. I used a combination of several tools, techniques and disciplines as well as herbs, vitamins and minerals.

You see, I am not a typical patient… I have spent over 22 years exploring, studying, certifying and facilitating several alternative-healing modalities, spiritual techniques and philosophies.  Through my training and strong connection to spirit I have come to understand the unique interconnection that we all have to everything.  I hold a B. Msc. in Metaphysical Science, Certification as a specialized Applied Kinesiologist, Certification as a Reiki Master & Teacher in two methods, Certification in Feng Shui, I founded the Beishu Method™ a unique form of healing taught to me by my spiritual guides and I facilitate programs and workshops. I have assisted thousands with their health and spiritual development…for God sakes, I am clairvoyance,  clairaudience and clairsentience, it is pretty hard to pull the wool over these eyes.

That being said, I, unlike my specialist, checked my blood work diligently so I could monitor the results of what my spiritual guides were having me do. I had to call Dr. Karim several times to address concerns I had about specific results. Please notice what I wrote:  I had to call him several times it wasn’t the other way around…him calling me with concern!

Then I noticed the error of all errors, he had ordered Hep B viral loads to be done…I am a Hep C patient, I may not be a doctor but I do know that is a different virus.

But wait, there’s more…

When I called to office to find out if he realized he had been checking the viral loads for the wrong virus twice now, his response was, “Am I bad.”  WHAT, are you joking me. What if I was a regular patient who didn’t even know I could check my results through ehealth.ca? What if I did but didn’t have a clue what to look for? What if I didn’t know my blood work was considered CRITCAL and I needed to be monitored closely? Was my health at risk with this man at the helm?

But wait, there’s more…

When I went to the lab for the correct test, they faxed the wrong blood work again and the lab had to call the office for the correct info!

But wait, there’s more…

At one point, I was soooo sick, I told Dr. Karim I couldn’t possibly work and it was causing financial difficulties, I was going to discontinue the medication. He told me he didn’t have my viral count back yet (this was of course due to the lab checking me for the wrong virus)…I could see by looking at the ehealth website that the results were in. He said he would assist me to apply for disability so I wouldn’t have to worry.

On some tests, the specialist has to call the lab and I couldn’t see the results for the viral load, is for the specialist only. It was a Friday, he told me it would be another week and I needed to go pick up my medication in case the virus was still active. So I went and picked up the meds, costing $13,700.00…then a miracle happened, he called me on a Saturday, a Saturday?… and voila, suddenly he had the results, no virus detectable! So was it that he simply didn’t call the lab until after I talked with him and then called me Saturday with the good news?

My intuition told me that doctors are making money – LOTS of money for prescribing drugs. Personally I think the practice of drug kickbacks to doctors is a big reason for the ever increasing prices of drugs and the huge problem of drug affordability. The practice of drug kickbacks is unethical and a danger to our health and the health of your loved ones, particularly if they are in the hospital and vulnerable to exploitation. My question is, “Do you the reader think this was a coincidence?” It very well could be, but my trust with him was broken after so many issues.

So…I thank you, if it wasn’t for your lack of due diligence and knowledge, I may still be ill. Because If I would have trusted him, I likely would have followed his every instruction instead of my spiritual guides. For all I know I might still be having Hep B tests done!

But wait, there’s more…

Last Friday, I had to surrender to going to Social Assistance, I have not worked for 3 months because the medication made me so ill.  I decided to follow up with what Dr. Karim suggested. I applied on line, someone called me, did a brief telephone interview and gave me a list of what I needed to bring in. One of the items was a note from the Doctor. I called and told them what I needed, a simple note confirming I was receiving treatment, when I was diagnosed and how much longer the treatment would be. I was told that he was busy and I wouldn’t be able to get it until the following week. I asked if I made the note and emailed it, could he just read and sign it so I could get the paperwork in? The receptionist told me that was a good idea, so I did and Dr. Karim wouldn’t sign it!

But wait, there’s more…

I sent this email:

Dr. Karim,

You are the one who encouraged me to follow through with disability, now they have finally called me back and I have to bring all my documents in. I have had to run around all day to get these together with my bucket so I don’t I don’t vomit in the car. If I don’t turn them in today I will need to wait another week – week and a half just for a second phone interview, I haven’t even seen anyone yet. 

It will take at least 2 months for me to get a cheque, I have enough money for 1 month…you are forcing me to go off the medication so I will feel well enough to work in a month when I have detoxed from the meds. I have no choice, I have no money and this is what Social Services needs to even give me an appointment. They will have a complete booklet for you to fill out when and if I get approved.

My injection day is today and I want you to know I have no intention of picking up my prescription or staying on this medication because without financial assistance, I cannot continue, I am tapped out!

Rev. Carol Lefevre B.Msc.

What were the results of my email you ask?…well, it is now Friday, one week later and I have still not heard from my specialist. Could it be that he isn’t aware of the risks of stopping these meds quickly? Could it be that he doesn’t care? Or perhaps he has read my blog…your guess is as good as mine.

Below is the Hippocratic Oath…see if there are any infringements for yourself…talk about stepping into the Karmic hotpot.

Restatement of the Oath of Hippocrates

I swear in the presence of the Almighty and before my family, my teachers, and my peers that according to my ability and judgement, I will keep the Oath and Stipulation:

To reckon all who have taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents and in the same spirit and dedication to impart a knowledge of the art of medicine to others. I will continue with diligence to keep abreast of advances in medicine. I will treat without exception all who seek my ministrations, so long as the treatment of others is not compromised thereby, and I will seek the counsel of particularly skilled physicians where indicated for the benefit of my patient.

I will follow that method of treatment which according to my ability and judgement I consider for the benefit of my patient and abstain from whatever is harmful or mischievous. I will neither prescribe nor administer a lethal dose of medicine to my patient even if asked, nor counsel any such thing, nor perform act or omission with direct intent deliberately to end a human life. I will maintain the utmost respect for every human life from fertilization to natural death and reject abortion that deliberately takes a unique human life.

With purity, holiness and beneficence I will pass my life and practice my art. Except for the prudent correction of an imminent danger, I will neither treat any patient nor carry out any research on any human being without the valid informed consent of the subject or the appropriate legal protector thereof, understanding that research must have as its purpose the furtherance of the health of that individual. Into whatever patient setting I enter, I will go for the benefit of the sick and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief or corruption and further from the seduction of any patient.

Whatever in connection with my professional practice or not in connection with it I may see or hear in the lives of my patients which ought not to be spoken abroad I will not divulge, reckoning that all such should be kept secret.

While I continue to keep this Oath unviolated may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of the art and science of medicine with the blessing of the Almighty and respected by my peers and society, but should I trespass and violate this Oath, may the reverse be my lot.

In Closing…

The bottom line is please become an active participant in your own health and healing process, never rely solely on our so called professionals and if in double get a second opinion.

Blessings of Health, Wealth and Happiness,

Rev. Carol Lefevre

I started doing some investigation and found the articles below.

Doctors Make Me Sick

by Jane Gaffin

While zero-tolerance policies clog court dockets and jam jails with non-violent weekend recreational drug users, it’s the dangerous drug-pushing criminals who should be behind bars, namely doctors who take patients off healthy nutrients and hook them on harmful prescription drugs.

The practice is detrimental to patients and financially beneficial to the quacks. Doctors receive 50 to 80 per cent kickbacks from the giant pharmaceutical companies for prescribing specific pills, especially experimental ones.

New drugs are not tested thoroughly before the government approves their release into the marketplace. Then doctors receive extra residuals for monitoring the reactions of the human guinea pigs and sending results to the drug companies in the spirit of research. Twenty years later, the patient is diagnosed with cancer or some other chronic disease.

Often the prescriptions are government-paid. Just as often the useless financial burden falls to the patient who doesn’t qualify for prescriptions under health care programs.

No problem. Plead poverty and the doctor’s office will submit a form to health care personnel. Then the doctor can load up the patient at government expense. The patient doesn’t have to worry about payment and the doctors get rewarded with kickbacks.

It’s a neat, tidy, slick fraud.

This is an exert from an article…Thursday, April 8, 2010

Minister Matthews wouldn’t “…call them kickbacks…but there are people who would.”

“Allowances” given Ontario to pharmacists by generic drug companies are to be eliminated said the province’s health minister Deb Matthews on Wednesday.

The idea is that the annual $750 million “subsidy” is to be used to pay for services to patients but even the pharmacists concede that 70% of the money is treated as rebates to fund operations and hike profits. Ms Matthews suggests ending the practice could reduce the cost of generics by half. To compensate, the minister suggested that the government will increase dispensing fees by $1 — to a total of $150 million to offset the reduction.

Donnie Edwards, a pharmacist in Ridgeway, Ontario thinks not:

“When you take $3 out and put $1 back in… I don’t think so. These dollars were used for professional services that pharmacists do everyday, in every town in this provinces”

Research based pharmaceutical companies support the change. Russell Williams, president of Rx&D, the companies’ association, said: “As partners in the health care system, we want to work with the government and health care providers to ensure that patients have access to the most appropriate treatment… through timely access to innovative medicines and vaccines… .”
