GVK looks to the June stars with John Wessels, Master Astrologer

We have been looking for answers in the stars for as long as we have been able to look up. Luckily for us, we have astrologers and astronomers to help us understand the messages that are there! In this podcast, John Wessels, Master Astrologer will give us dates to pay attention to and what we can expect during these times for the month of June.

When my son, Landon, was a baby, I went to a Master Astrologer for a reading.  At the time, Jeff, Landon and I were living in a small town outside of Boston, MA.  She told me many things and all of it rang true, accept this one piece. She told me that we would be moving at the end of October because Jeff was getting a new job. I told her that she was mistaken. After all, we had moved back to Boston from Brooklyn, NY, only two years ago so that Jeff could stay with the firm he had been telecommuting for.  He had been with this firm for 12 years, loved his job and had no intention of leaving.  Besides it was September and I couldn’t see how anything that big would happen that fast. The astrologer smiled and said, “Well, your chart says otherwise”.

A week later Jeff came home from work with what he said was “interesting news”.  A firm in NJ had reached out to him for an interview ~ could he come immediately? My jaw dropped.  I said “Well, I guess we are moving to NJ.”  Jeff laughed and said, no, no.  But, funnily enough, he had seen the ad for that job in the Wall Street Journal a month before and while it looked really interesting, he wasn’t in need of a job and so he recycled the paper and went about his day. But, now,  his interest was piqued and he wanted to go for the sake of going.  Well he had 3 interviews within two weeks, was offered and accepted the job before the end of October! We sold our house in one day and Jeff went on ahead of me while I finished up a play that I was performing in.

I was a believer before that day, but, that experience brought the planets, moon and stars into my orbit like never before…

GVK tones and balances the full seven chakras

Ok GVKers! here it is ~ the 7 chakras. I promise you that toning all seven chakras regularly will improve your life on every level. Your connection to the Divine will deepen, your psychic abilities will expand and your sense of well being will broaden. Keep this podcast in your tool kit for balancing and shifting the energy in your life to a more positive and Knowing place.

 

Let’s recap ~
1st chakra color: red            element: earth ~     to have
2nd chakra color:orange     element: water ~    to feel
3rd chakra color: yellow     element: fire ~         to act
4th chakra color: green       element: air ~          to love
5th chakra color: sky blue  element: sound ~    to speak
6th chakra color: indigo     element: light ~       to see
7th chakra color: violet       element: thought ~ to know

When we are balanced, we can receive, with clarity, the Divine messages that surround us. Accessing our Divine Selves brings us into a place of Knowing and Knowing pushes out the fear. I hear so many conversations centered in fear and negativity ~ global warming, poverty, animal abuse, Earth abuse. Sigh. Believe me, I get it! I live on this Earth and I am well aware of the challenges we are facing as a human race. But, lets be honest, if I focus on that, then I seriously would not even get out of bed in the morning. I must remain focused on my Divine Self to institute positive change.

My kids will tell you that my favorite saying, and I Live by this, is ~ if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Period. It is truly that simple. Stay balanced and create positive change. Pick up the garbage you see on the ground, plant a tree, stop using pesticides on your lawn and garden, volunteer in your town, smile at people, learn something about a different culture (especially one that scares you). How to effect positive change is endless. Balance, tap in and vibrate it out to be the beacon of Light you came here to be…

GVK gets an Indie Spiritualist experience with Chris Grosso


indiespiritualist-150x150Chris Grosso promotes his book as a “no bullshit exploration of spirituality”, and his honesty is hard core, which, frankly, we love at GVK. But, what he brought to our conversation this week, was a gentle mindfulness. Like Megan and I, Chris has been down the rabbit hole and experienced the darkness. And then, by the Grace of All That Is, he found his way into the Light. We talked about some of those “ah ha” moments that reawaked our Higher Self.

That “ah ha” conversation reminded me of a song by Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens ) ~

The Wind

To me, this songs sums up my experience with Awakening. I did swim upon the devils lake. In fact, there was a time when I thought that was my only choice. Divine inspiration or intervention weren’t for people like me. I had goals and dreams and ideas, but, I never seemed to quite get it right. I always seemed to make that one bad decision, trust that one wrong person, make that

It’s not like I was born with those feelings. My Mom always talked about how all of us (my sister and brothers) came out with our personalities in tact. She said that I was always happy, optimistic and excitedly looked at everything like a new adventure. But when my teens hit, I got hit by a storm of negativity that took hold of me. The brutal experiences of my teens left me with the feeling that I was all alone and that life was meant to be endured. Sigh. It was a dark and lonely time for me.

And then came my shift in perspective. An understanding that if I really had been alone, I would have most likely been killed by those negative forces. I retraced those dark times, as I plunged into my spiritual quest, and saw where I was guided, loved and held in Divine Light. Thus was and is my journey of seeing, of hearing and of Knowing. It is, as Chris Grosso so beautifully put it,  “the spirit continuing to awaken”…

GVK opens to the Divine with the 7th chakra

The seventh chakra is your connection to the Divine.  This chakra is a deep violet leading into white. It’s element is Thought.  But, funnily enough, you can’t think this chakra into opening.  The way into this magical and Divine world is by Being. This chakra, being the door to the Divine, does not become imbalanced.  It will either be open, partially open or closed.

When I was a teen and into my early 20’s, I did not believe in anything like a Higher Power.  Life seemed to kick me over and over and if there were such things as Angels and Guides, I certainly did not think that they were with me.  I thought that if there were such things, they were for the super religious people.  I felt very much on my own in terms of how to get through life.  My crown chakra was however not closed. I recieved information from the Divine all the time, but, did not realize what it was. But due to the fear that I was living in, my crown chakra was only partially open.

However, when I moved from my parents home, I began to experience things that could not be explained away. Premonitory dreams, people talking very clearly to me in my dreams, hunches that were always right and a very loud clear voice of guidance.  I then began to explore the psychic world which lead me on a spiritual journey. That journey lead to the healing and opening of my heart, which in turn,  fully opened my crown chakra.

As the heart opens, so does our awareness of the Divine. The Divine is Always with us. My experience is that when I reach out to the Divine, even just a tiny bit, Divinity runs to me full force with more love than I can possibly fathom…

GVK hears the Angels with Emma Kupu Mitchell

Emma Kupu Mitchel was with us today on GVK and what a treat it was!  Emma shines her light by healing with the sound of bowls.  With the vibration of the bowls, she then tunes into the vibration of the Angels and receives messages.

I believe that we can all access the Divine realm and “hear” the Angels, the Ascended Masters and All That Is.  However, it does take learning to perceive in a different way.  It takes moving our focus away from the everyday desires, wishes, needs of our human life and open up to an expanded vision.

Expanding the senses and letting the ego part of our existence takes practice and commitment.  It takes a desire to view the world in a different way, in a Grander way.  And of course, it then means that we will be experiencing ourselves in a more profound way as well.  Knowing that you matter, that you make a difference when you shine your Light on this Earth is the way to the Divine.  It is a simple direct way of opening up to a bigger picture than what lays in front of you.

When I hear people say, “what can I do”, “what difference can one person make”, “what does it matter” ~ I am reminded of Mother Teresa, Muhatma Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln.  I also think of Emma Mitchell, who opens her heart to the guidance of Angels by the ringing of a bowl.  And with that opening, she shares that guidance with all of us who have yet to hear in the way that she does.  And that guidance gives us hope, encouragement, comfort and Love.  One person can do Anything!
