GVK & Shakti Sunfire tackle fear

gvk-final-01Whether you know her as Laura Blakeman or Shakti Sunfire, her message is the same~you need tools at the ready to deal with fear. On Laura’s incredible website ~ The Rhythm Way ~ you will find yourself exploring practical tools to help you on your path to freedom.

One of Laura’s tools is to connect with nature. I completely identified with her profound statement~

“As soon as I go out into Nature…I remember who I am. I remember that I belong to something much larger than this…”

The key concept for me is something larger than the issue that is bringing up the fear. Now look, I’m not talking about the kind of fear that one experiences during some kind of violence. I’m talking about old fears that have a grip on you and keep you from raising your human experience from the age old fight or flight syndrome.

I can boil down my fears to very specific events in my life that were emotionally and physically traumatic. I received very clear negative messages from this time period in my life. Because of the young age that I experienced this, the groove that the messages created is deep and repetitive.

So, when those fears come up, I must be aware and awake enough to use the tools that I have learned over the years to reroute my thinking. To change my perspective on the issue at hand. Sigh. And for me, it’s all about my thinking. Sometimes, I simply be~lie~ve the lies that I picked up in my teen years. Then I end up spiraling down into the abyss of depression. And that happens because I forget that I have a choice on what to believe.

And I forget that choice because I forget that there is a power greater than myself at work in my life. For me, having a deep spiritual practice brings me peace during the storms of human~ness. AND, sitting on the Earth, with her amazing creatures and creations all around me brings me back into remembering that I am a spiritual being having a human experience faster than any mantra I have ever chanted! xoK

GVK shares Grace with Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati

When Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati shared her story of awakening, it brought tears to my eyes. For her, it was one fell swoop of Divinity opening her eyes to Truth and awakening her heart to Love. And with that swoop, her life changed forever.

I went to sleep in my early teens because I did not remember my Divine Self. I could not find my Light and so I let the darkness fall onto me like a blanket of thorns. I swam in the sea of drugs and alcohol thinking I would be saved from my confusion. I was Asleep.

My awakening has been in bits and pieces

Some of these pieces have been snippets of the profound that Sadhvaji experienced. But, most were tiny rays of Light breaking through and pushing away the shadow of my small self. My Higher Self knows that clarity and understanding are a major component to my Kristin self and so many examples of expansion have been presented build upon.

Slowly, over time and with great Love from the Divine, I have Awakened. There is more Truth for me to unfold into, and I am in a place of wonderment as I journey onward.

Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati is president of the Divine Shakti Foundation, Secretary-General of the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance and Director of the International Yoga Festival. She follows the teachings of the revered H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, the spiritual head and president of Parmarth Niketan and the founder of several non-profit organizations including the Divine Shakti Foundation, Global Interfaith WASH Alliance, Ganga Action Parivar, & India Heritage Research Foundation.

GVK knows the Divine Self with Marsha Mason

marsha-mason-1-sized
Marsha Mason is the perfect example of being who you are, not being what you do! She has had many incarnations in this lifetime so far. She was a highly celebrated actress in Hollywood, then she was the owner of the Abiquiu Farm in New Mexico (where she learned about Biodynamic Farming), and now has the natural skincare product line ~ Resting In The River  Natural Products ~ from her work on that farm.

Marsha’s deep spiritual practice with Swami Muktananda and Gurumayi has brought her to knowing who she is on a Divine level

And that’s the goal isn’t it?  To know oneself through the eyes of the Divine. We desire to but be who we are and let that inform what we do. That was the hardest part for me!  And it was coming into a deep spiritual practice that showed me that above all, I am a spiritual being. There are different aspects of me that go into everything that I do, certainly.  And those things are pieces to the puzzle that is me.  I’ve had over 50 jobs in my life and in every single one of those jobs, I brought a different aspect of myself to the forefront. Even as a parent, I bring only aspects of myself forward.

I can now say that I am at peace with who I am and happy to bring that to what I do. For it is only with the Divine that I am I fully100% who I Am…

Good Vibrations on healing Mother Earth

earth-hands1
Earth Is Calling ~ can you hear Her?? The environmental issues we face causes me great anxiety or agita, as my Italian grandmother used to say. I actively work to focus on the positive things happening around the cleaning up the mess that our ancestors have left in their wake. But, sometimes I get discouraged ~ Really discouraged. Which is why our
conversation with Ellen Gunter was so uplifting!  Ellen’s book

Earth Calling, is a spiritual alarm clock for raising awareness to Earths dire situation right now.

Talking about a solution is so much better for this sensitive soul than focusing on the magnitude of the issues at hand. And shifting our focus is going to be how we will solve, heal and transmute the issues that face us on Earth right now.  Remember that our feelings have an energetic pattern that moves out into the world and we must be conscious of what we send out.

The  Peoples Climate March, over 400,000 people deep, was a positive march to let our government know that we desire change around the environmental practices on our Mother Earth. 400,000! In other words, you are not alone.  There is an awakening taking place and you are part of it.

You do not have to be environmental activist Tim DeChristohper to make a difference.

My dear soul sister, Jillian Kelly, owns the Asheville Bee Charmer to help the bees. This is her way of supporting Mother Earth and raising awareness around the chemical warfare that our Earth is under. Start small, but do start now. Your effort, your vibration, your intentions help awaken the slumbering masses who do not believe that we must act now.

 Can you Imagine people working together for the greater good of our Mother Earth and our own humanity like John Lennon did? I can…

GVK pollinates Light and Love with Noelle Meade~Izzi

Noelle Izzi’s quest is to bring awareness to her beautifully coined expression ~”spiritual pollination“.  Megan and I were excited by the term and it’s implication for raising the vibration of our life experiences and more profoundly, our Earth.  Spiritual pollination  is about what energy we put out into the world. By putting positive energy, thought and action out,  we create a world of Divine balance ~ the same kind of balance that we see, and experience in Nature. 

Noelle had a beautiful experience with a hummingbird that changed her perspective and turned her world around.  The hummingbird was brought in by the Divine to pollinate a message of Joy.  The Native Americans believe that the hummingbird feathers open the heart.  Without an open heart, we can not experience the beauty and bliss of life.  Hummingbird is a bird of true Joy.  This bird is the only one who can fly up, down and in each direction, It can also seem as though it is literally hanging still in the air. Hummingbird, though teeny tiny, is a powerful pollinator.  Because of it’s free spirit, it can not live in captivity.

We talked briefly about Dr. Masaru Emoto ~ the world renown scientist, who proved that words, written or spoken, will change how water crystals form.  Beautiful music and words spoken to water or even written on a glass of water creates beautiful crystal formations in the water that can be witnessed after it isfrozen.  Negative words spoken into or taped onto the glass of water created deformed and imbalanced crystals.  

Follow the link below to get more information and be astounded by what vibrations a word will create in water.  Then take that a step further to understand the impact that you have every day with EVERY word you speak and think…

GVK with Jane Petrov and her film short What Future

Jane Petrov and I talked at length about her 12 minute short film What Future. There is time travel, recycling, earth consciousness and saving our future Earth! Besides hitting the film circuit in September, Jane’s desire is for the film to enter our schools curriculum to help educate children. What Future is “The Christmas Carol of sustainability,” which means that things are bleak, but, we can turn it around. Jane’s life purpose is to bring together creative talent and tell a story to create change and she does so powerfully with this film.

Living a conscious life is my favorite topic. There are many paths to consciousness and one of them is mindful behavior toward our Earth. Recycling and composting are the easiest ways to help keep our Earth healthy. It is easy to point fingers at our past generations on what was wrong, yet to fully shift the vibration toward awareness in our environment we must instead do things in a different manner. The ways of the past no longer serve our future. The company, Seventh Generation’s viewpoint is how we behave today will effect the next seven generations. That means that we need to be aware of what we put not only into our bodies, but into our sustenance, which is our Mother Earth.
I love that Jane and her production company, SkyTown Entertainment, want to shift the vibration of what could be a desolate hell on Earth, to an abundant healthy Earth for generations to come. So Keep your eyes open, keep checking the films progress on the What Future facebook page ~
and support Jane’s efforts for a healthy Earth by recycling, eating organic, living a more mindful life and spreading Love in your everyday life.

GVK and Diane Jackson animal communicator

Diane Jackson, animal communicator, talked at length with me about what that means and how she learned to pick up an animals thought. She works with all types of animals by tuning in to their frequecy and letting her ego step out of the way to serve as a conduit for the message. She has helped me with many an issue over the years, including a message from one of my familiars who transitioned. I know that her communications are true because things have been said to me that only someone in my immediate family would know and who is more immediate than your animal! Diane is also a healer who incorporates many modalities into her practice, and yes, she can use her healing for your pets.

If you want to know what is on your pets mind, or are having an issue that needs attending to ~ call Diane!!! 919.632.8719

GVK & Carolle Huber of Grow It Green Morristown

gvk-final-01Carolle Huber of Grow It Green Morristown and I talked about her inspiring story of how three women had an idea on how to bring Earth awareness to her town by creating a community garden and an urban teaching farm. I truly celebrate these women who moved forward with their vision, even though they were told it would never be. They created a community garden which will now be a permanent fixture, changing the landscape of a developement project for that site. They started small with the Urban Farm in Morristown and generated so much excitement from the schools about their educational programs that they have been given much more land to grow with! What would the world look like if we followed Carolle and her friends passion to move forward with a dream against what may looks like the odds. I believe that we can create paradise and this story is a model for that desire…
