Re-capping 2012 and looking forward to 2013

Hmmm, where to begin my reflections of 2012…Generally speaking I would venture to say it was a pretty low, key and relaxing year. My New Years resolution is more or less always the same: be a more loving, compassionate person, follow my guidance and create inner peace, find balance and go with the flow. This year I decided that since it was the year of the great shift I would spend less time working on others and more time enjoying life and bringing more balance into my life.

Balance is a funny thing, take the symbolism of the scales, the slightest weight (say a feather) added or removed on either side completely shifts the whole.

Balance

noun

  1. a state of equilibrium or equipoise; equal distribution of weight, amount, etc.
  2. something used to produce equilibrium; counterpoise.
  3. mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc.
  4. a state of bodily equilibrium: He lost his balance and fell down the stairs.
  5. an instrument for determining weight, typically by the equilibrium of a bar with a fulcrum at the center, from each end of which is suspended a scale or pan, one holding an object of known weight, and the other holding the object to be weighed.

As a Libra rising with a Libra moon, balance has become an obsession for me at times. Several years ago I came to a bizarre understanding;  finding balance meant considering and being conscious of imbalance first. I think that tipping the scales in the extreme opposites for so many years had allowed me to finally find the balance point and a state of equilibrium. After all that seeking, finding and integrating I have come to realize that although balance is a much sought after state, it is the highs and lows in life that are the real memory makers.

That being said, I tipped the scales toward relaxation, I spent more time in nature and at the beach, read more, started painting again, meditated more, and connected with others more. I guess you could say it was balanced relaxation, this was clearly reflected in the bottom line of my business when the bookkeeper paid me a visit last month, yikes!

So, the biggest highlights of 2012 was the travel.

  • A trip to Costa Rica in March/April that was relaxing, healing and a wonderful spiritual retreat https://carollefevre.wordpress.com/2012/05/07/personal-healing-retreat
  • A short trip to the sunshine coast, Sechelt allowed me to re-connect with previous clients and students while I had an opportunity to facilitate a Holographic Healing workshop. I stayed with a friend I hadn’t connected with for 5 years, it was so nice to spend some time with her and re-connect. http://www.soulalchemyhealing.com/the-melchizedek-method.html
  • I went to the Island, Parksville to help out a dear friend and her husband. It was an intense visit. I mostly worked, I was able to see 9 clients there and did 4 sessions on her husband Richard who had a seizure last year and has completely lost his memory, I mean everything! He didn’t even remember her. And so yet another walk-in has arrived to the earth plane! I pray for his speedy integration.
  • I went to Edmonton in August and re-united with family I hadn’t seen in over 35 years, re-connected with dear friends and had an absolute blast. My beautiful cousin Juanita is an absolute joy to hang with! I soooo wish we lived closer to each other. I had the pleasure of teaching a mini holographic healing workshop there and we did some feng shui in her home. I was able to lend a hand to Deborah an absolutely amazing woman and dear, dear friend while I was there too. OMG, so many things happened in that week it makes my head spin! Everything from yoga, being rescued by a dreamy firefighter, to Drag Queen charity events…wow! I did some serious scale tipping here.
  • Then there was the 10 day silent retreat in Merritt, BC which has definitely changed my life…forever  https://carollefevre.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/10-days-of-silence
  • Then there was the visit here from my gorgeous sister and wonderful mother. Karen and I laughed so hard in the canoe I thought I would pee my pants. I tried to get out on a sandbar and fell in! Watching Karen made me realize how similar I was at her age and how much my values have changed. I am grateful that she decided to come for a visit even though some of our expectations were not met. In the weeks that followed we texted our frustrations and irritations to one another and when it was all over we managed to get back to LOVE. Mom and I started spray it away and mom lost 33lbs in less than 2 months. I lost 15 even with my slip ups 🙂 All in all it was a great visit.

Let’s see…the other BIG thing that happened in 2012 was that I was registered with vital statistics to legally perform weddings, this was a huge breakthrough for me, and so exciting. https://carollefevre.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/its-official-im-official

It was a privilege to marry these two seniors in our home.

Wedding at our home

I took time out to read, and to read something that wasn’t work related. When I say work related I mean anything spiritual. Yep, I read “The fifty shades of grey” series. Entertaining and maybe a little educational…wink, wink!

books

I made it a point to start painting again, and finally managed to bond with acrylic…YES! Here are a couple photos to show you my progress. I decided to create a gallery page on my blog as well. Here is a page with some of my art and the process I went through https://carollefevre.wordpress.com/painting-gallery and here is the blog from when I first started painting: https://carollefevre.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/when-all-hell-breaks-loose-paint

I tried something new this year…a piercing. It was an experience I was going to blog about and chose not to. Why, you ask. Well it’s a little personal and I realized that I would take up an entire blog just venting and raging about an experience that still leaves me frustrated and incomplete. Kelly, the owner should thank Vipassana Meditation, not writing the blog has likely saved West Coast Piercing big money.

The bottom line is that I had a botched piercing done by the manager, who has 5 years experience. After 3 visits I contacted the owner, then after some 18 emails, 2 more visits and a re-piercing I am still not satisfied, not to mention that it has cost me 3 times the average price for this type of piercing. If anyone needs some jewellery, I have lots now…

Hmmmm, what else…I began working on my thesis for my Masters in Metaphysics, not so much writing it but doing lots of research. I am hoping to finish it this year…still undecided about the subject. I am considering paradigm shifts, meditation or something about the programming of the unconscious mind. I’m open to any ideas anyone out there may have.

Oh, I nearly forgot, we finally got our hallway, dining room and living room painted this year. It was a nightmare. The previous owners slapped paint on and got it all over the wooden trim. We spent hours upon hours cleaning it off with mild nail polish remover before we could actually paint. All the wooden trim, windows and vaulted ceilings made the process long and strenuous and it looks beautiful now that it is complete.

Oh, one more thing, I learned how to create my own websites. It is so rewarding being able to go onto my site and change things when I want to. I made three new sites and updated the look of my blog. The sites are:

This encouraged me to register my new company: New Perspectives Ministry

So what lies ahead for 2013? Well I have been thinking about that, quite a bit. This is the first year in 12 that I did not do a collage on January 1st. In fact I have decided to take the four that I have up down. I am in detachment mode I suppose. My visions/goals seem to be the same from year to year:

  • Inner Peace
  • The world a loving place
  • Abundance for all
  • Great Health
  • Happy and Healthy Relationships
  • Comfortable Home
  • Excellent Divine Guidance
  • Personal Growth

I am fortunate that for the most part I have all these things. I guess the difference is wanting vs needing. Do I desire a bigger home, more money and a more loving planet…Hell Yes. Am I grateful for the love, abundance, comfort and peace in my life now…Hell Yes! So my focus remains the same; be a more loving, compassionate person, always follow my guidance, create inner peace, find balance and go with the flow, and above all find equanimity in all things.

My dear friends, clients, fellow bloggers and readers; with all my heart, I wish you more magic and miracles than you could imagine would come your way in order for you all to create the reality you desire in 2013…Happy New Year.

May Blessing Abound in your Life Today and Always,

What is Spiritual Coaching?

Who is a Spiritual Coach?

A spiritual coach is similar to a life coach only for those on a spiritual path or those who would like to become more self-aware. Instead of focusing on external factors of your life, a spiritual coach focuses on the inner workings of your mind, body, and soul. Spiritual coaches assists you in the process of self-discovery and spirituality which in turn can be used to overcome some of life’s greatest challenges. This type of coaching can assist you to break free of  lifetime’s worth of limitations, suffering, pain and help you find real joy and true peace.

Research shows that things such as positive beliefs, comfort and strength gained from religion, meditation and prayer can contribute to healing and a sense of well-being. Improving our spiritual health may not cure an illness, but it may help us feel better, prevent some health problems and help us cope better with illness or death.

Religious and spiritual beliefs are an important part of how many people deal with life’s joys, prosperity and hardships. Faith can provide people with a sense of purpose and clearer guidelines for living and insights into the self.

This type of coaching leads client’s to deep personal transformation. Coaches help their clients improve certain areas of their life, such as determining their spiritual path, how to proceed on their spiritual journey, and how to shrug off the negative events that seem to occur daily.  Spiritual coaches often facilitate a process that teaches you to how to live from a higher level of conscious awareness, how to deal with your feelings, needs, desires, dreams and goals and then manifest them.

The Concept

The concept that we create our own reality is more widespread than ever before. In our parent’s generation and before, this concept was known only to a few. Those few were mainly mystics and shamans. Now discoveries and experiments in quantum physics prove the truth of this concept. Mystics, shamans and some quantum physicists know that we create our reality by our thoughts, beliefs and perceptions.

We are actually more powerful than we can even imagine. For most of us, though, our experience tells us something entirely different. We feel that we are at the mercy of an outward reality, the victims of circumstances beyond our control. We work harder and harder, thinking that if only we have more money, more time, the right pill, the right family, more love, or a better job that we will finally be whole and happy. We try to change and control the circumstances and people around us in order to feel empowered.

As a Minister and Metaphysical Practitioner, Carol understands about trying to change and control things outside of ourselves such as power. When the energy of the soul is recognized, acknowledged, and valued, it begins to infuse the life of the personality. When the personality comes fully to serve the energy of its soul it is authentic empowerment. This is the goal of the evolutionary process in which we are involved and the reason for our being.

Carol chose the name Soul Alchemy Healing because it describes how this process from external power to authentic power happens. The true transmutation that comes from aligning the personality with the energy of our soul can only be done by a journey from unconsciousness to consciousness. This process of miraculous change happens by taking a journey inside.

Awareness

The spiritual tools, techniques, exercises and disciplines taught through the spiritual coaching techniques at Soul Alchemy Healing are pathways to our inner world. This journey within enables students and clients to become aware of how they see and experience their lives, getting them in touch with their underlying and unconscious beliefs, perceptions and thoughts. Without this awareness we are at the mercy of a reality created by our unconscious beliefs.

Awareness is only the first step in the alchemical process. The Talmud says, “We don’t see things as they are, but as we are.” If we believe ourselves, and therefore our souls, to be unlovable, unworthy, and powerless, then we will experience ourselves to be these things. The Truth is that each soul is a unique expression of the Divine, a spark from the flame that is the Creator. Awareness shows us what our beliefs are and how those beliefs have actually created our reality. By becoming aware, we can then change our beliefs.

Changes

Changing what we say we believe is not enough because supporting our old beliefs are habitual thought, perceptual and energetic patterns. These habitual patterns have to be changed also in order for lasting transformation to occur. Working with these habitual patterns requires us to develop and maintain a spiritual practice. The tools, techniques and exercises taught through Soul Alchemy can be used by clients and students to develop their own unique spiritual practice, which can bring every aspect of their lives into alignment with their divine essence. This is authentic empowerment.

2012 Energy

As you may know 2012 will be an intense year for spiritual growth, one where there is an immense amount of light on the planet. This could be the start of a new journey for many of you that will move you effectively into one of the most astonishing astronomical events that will mark the end of our age.

I have put a very special offer together for those of you who would like to do a series of very in-depth and powerful work on yourselves. It will include working on every chakra including any  issues/gifts that come with delving into each, how to effectively function on each of the 7 Rays, initiations from Masters of the Rays, becoming more intuitive, meditations, breathing and becoming more energy than matter and creating the new paradigm you desire! This will set up in two hour coaching sessions per month, a $2,700.00 value that I am offering to you for only $780.00 if you sign up and pay for it before the end of 2011. These sessions can be done via telephone, skype or in person.

Check out my website: http://www.soulalchemyhealing.com to learn more about me and to see some of the services I offer.

For those of you who would like to charge it you can go through paypal on my website, although I will add an additional $33.00 for this service to cover my costs. If you’d like to go through paypal send me and email and I will explain how you can do it.

Blessings for a New Year of Love and Growth

May you be blessed with miraculous and unforeseen abundance at every turn.

May the heavens pour down upon you more joy, love, laughter and more money than you could ever have dreamed would come your way.

May the sun shine its golden light of prosperity through every aspect of your business and your being each and every day.

May you be willing, simply willing, to allow the Universe to shower you
with wonder and magic.

May your victories be more abundant then all the grains of sands, on all the beaches and oceans in the entire world.

May the Arch-Angels wrap you in their shining wings of gentle love, bliss, happiness and protection.

May the fairies deliver to you their pot of gold at the end of their majestic rainbows.

May your eyes shine with the glorious truth of who you really are and may that truth uplift others in your presence to their own inner knowing.

May you taste the deliciousness of every precious bite of life as your
life unfolds moment by moment with amazing grace, heartfelt love and bountiful blessings.

As this day ends, may you be filled with enduring peace and profound gratitude for the successes in your life.

May the last thing you think at the end of each day be Thank You as you rest your head and drift off to sleep!

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

Proverbs are popularly defined as short expressions of popular wisdom. Most of us have heard some of those old expressions, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink” and “God helps those who help themselves” or “You make your bed, so you must lie in it” and “Actions speak louder than words”. These all come to mind in my state of unrest and inability to help a friend I have recently re-connected with.

Have you ever been in a position where you tried to guide someone and no matter what guidance or advice you gave, they just wouldn’t move forward? It is as if they can’t even be present enough to hear the message you are delivering. If you are a parent of a spouse you have likely had this experience several dozen times. Those of us who are healers  often get caught between two realities and it can be a very uncomfortable place to live.

There have been so many times when I have been guided to say, “If you don’t follow through with this clearing work you will be forced by universal law to deal with it, and it won’t be a gentle experience.” I don’t want to freak people out and make them feel as though they don’t have choice so I lighten it a bit where possible by telling them a story of the collapse of my world when I didn’t pay attention. Then I might paraphrase it to something like, “There are some very challenging situations coming up for you, a clearing would really serve you best to assist in the process, and sooner than later is advised.” Or, “Please consider doing a clearing for your child, I feel they may do something self-destructive soon.”

As frustrating as it can be at times, I learned a very important lesson from my teacher Hanna Kroeger. She said that if you just meet someone, a new acquaintance, you may share your advice, insight or information with them once, if they are family or a loved one you can mention it three times, after that say nothing. They won’t follow through or even hear you and you spend all your energy falling on deaf ears. It can be so very hard for me to stand back and watch someone I care about “go down the garden path.”

It seems that some things must be experienced, no matter how difficult it may be for the rest of us to watch while sitting on the sidelines. Sometimes I want to take people buy the shoulders and shake them until they get it! I keep thinking it must feel this way for parents who are trying to assist their children to make the best choices for their futures.

This is where it all gets sticky and interesting…everyone has a Divine Plan, lessons they chose to learn through experiences, they may have even per-destined some; the worst thing is often we are not privileged to know what that plan is. Tough for us nosy types! Perhaps if we did know it would in some way upset the balance of the outcome. It is torture for those of us who only want love, and good things for those we care about in our lives. It can be an even bigger challenge if we need to release a friendship or relationship if the person doesn’t come around. In my life I have had to do this on several occasions. The strange thing is that once I released them, they shifted…which begs the question; “Was I part of the Divine plan to assist them in moving forward?” Perhaps I was, just not in the way I believed it should be.

When it comes to guidance we all need to practice patience and love to the tenth degree. Sometimes simply holding the energy for the other to move forward is all it takes, sometimes a gentle kick in the ass is more appropriate, and other times saying nothing is the best choice.

All I know is that for me, it sucks when I can see what’s coming and try to guide someone and they DON”T FOLLOW THROUGH! It is painful to watch when suddenly someone’s world is in turmoil and crashing down around them. Part of me wants to hold them and love them and the ego part of me wants to say “I told you so!”

So what do I do after many, many years of this practice? I suck it up and realize that it’s their process and they have to do what they have to do. Hmmm…what do you say to great advice that wasn’t followed and then pain and heart break proceed? A simple shrug of the shoulders, a loving embrace and, all I can say is, “Well we knew a session was needed” Fingers crossed they come and do some healing/clearing work before all hell breaks loose again.

In 2012, a special energy  will be provided to allow the healing of old wounds. It is a ray of Forgiveness gifted to humanity so we can move forward. Our job is to receive the healing by accepting forgiveness for our past errors. We must allow Love to permeate the old structures we have built around us. So for all of us who experience bringing a horse to water and it not drinking, let it go, do what you can and forgive yourself for not doing more; because very simply put, you couldn’t have.

Stay willing to provide guidance and when it is not accepted or followed up on, become a committed spiritual warrior and focus on your own divine process, this will in turn support those around you. Remember, “God helps those who help themselves.”

Blessings of much Love and Light,

Rev. Carol Lefevre

Mind Chatter

How do you quiet your racing mind so that you can think clearly, or simply have a night of peace, without any negative thinking at all?

In my work as a medical intuitive, I encounter a large number of people who suffer horribly the never ending chatter in their minds keeps them awake when they’d rather sleep, makes them worry about matters that, objectively, don’t warrant so much worry, and can really make their life miserable.

From time to time we all have those voices in our heads that just won’t stop talking. What occurs in the mind is that a lot of competing thoughts are pulling in different directions. Sometimes the mind will play a conversation that we had earlier, over and over again, exploring different outcomes. “If I would have said this__________ then _____________ would have happened.” Then what happens is we get pulled in so many different directions that we end up feeling totally stuck. The outcome is that we don’t have a clear path of which way to go or the focus to take our next step.

The concept that we create our own reality is more widespread than ever before. In our parent’s generation and before, this concept was known only to a few. Those few were mainly mystics and shamans. Now discoveries and experiments in quantum physics prove the truth of this concept. Mystics, shamans and some quantum physicists know that we create our reality by our thoughts, beliefs and perceptions. Creating our own realities start with a single thought. It is for this reason that I am compelled to give you some tips to assist you to do just that.

Since thought is the first step in the manifestation process, it is important to watch and control our thoughts whenever possible. Here a few ways to over-ride the mental body system:

  1. Watch your thoughts: Relax and gently close your eyes. For about 1 minute, easily watch thoughts flowing through your mind. Just watch them, listen to them and observe them, and let them go. If you notice that you are straining, imagine you are putting them into the recycle bin on your computer.
  2. Count your thoughts: Count your thoughts. Begin by gently closing your eyes. Relax and notice the thoughts moving through your mind. Then easily, effortlessly begin to count each thought that comes into your awareness. For example, if you notice the sound of a bird singing outside, count that as thought #1. If you notice a sensation in your body, count that as #2. If you have a thought like, “oh that was a bird singing should I count that?” Count that as #3. And so on, count as many thoughts as you notice.
  3. Do an I Am Presence Connection: http://www.soulalchemyhealing.com/techniques.html
  4. Re-program your thoughts: Choose an affirmation or statement that you can say over and over again in your mind to cancel out the thoughts. An example might be; I am grateful to be calm and peaceful or I am happy and grateful for financial freedom.
  5. Take some White Chestnut (flower essence) by Bach: http://www.bachflower.com/38_Essences.htm#WhiteChestnut
  • “For those who cannot prevent thoughts, ideas, arguments which they do not desire from entering their minds. Usually at such times when the interest of the moment is not strong enough to keep the mind full. Thoughts which worry and still remain, or if for a time thrown out, will return. They seem to circle round and round and cause mental torture. The presence of such unpleasant thoughts drives out peace and interferes with being able to think only of the work or pleasure of the day.” – Dr. Edward Bach

6. Breathe into your thoughts: Bring your awareness to your breathing and follow                         the  in and out breath for a few cycles. Continue focusing on the breath.

  • Breathe in and say,  “peace and stillness” in your mind
  • Breathe out and say,  “goodbye” in your mind

And above all; always remember that wherever you are is perfect. You are in the perfect position to get there from here, it all starts with what you think!

Wishing you all Peace of Mind,

Carol Lefevre
