GVK and Dr. Stacey Radin get Brave

gvk-final-01The balance between male and female has been out of balance for eons. Women in the United States have come to view one another as competition. Whether it be for a partner, a job, a “look” or sex, it’s all about not letting the other one get it. We have very little solidarity. I can’t believe the way women look at one another, let alone what they say. I have far too often heard women use the term “whore” to describe someone she doesn’t like. And it all starts in middle school.

But, Stacey Radin, PsyD, wants to change all that. She wants girls to own their power. Because girls who own their power become women who are comfortable with their power. And women, who are comfortable with their power, join forces and make powerful positive changes for all of humanity.

When I moved in the middle of 9th grade from NY to MA, I experienced female behavior that I never even knew existed and was grossly unprepared to handle. I walked into a world of girls who were physically violent and emotionally abusive. They were jealous that I was “too pretty” and angry that I might “take their boyfriends”.  They tormented, tortured and abused me for many years.  I can’t say that I found the adult women much help at that time either. They too made judgements about how smart I was (and was not) according to what I looked like. And they were none too eager to protect me from the roving gangs of girls. One female teacher allowed a whole group of girls take me from the middle of my class to get beaten in the hallway right outside the door.

brave girlsIt wasn’t until I met my friend, Dawn, that I came to know a Brave Girl. She and I had just become friends when a girl from one of the many groups of girls who hunted me walked up to me. The girl said “I’m a cousin of a friend of someone who hates you and I’m gonna kill you after school.” My new friend, Dawn, looked hard at that girl and said, “No you’re not.” “Huh?” said the girl to Dawn (no one had ever done that before!) “No you’re NOT because you’ll have to go through me first!” Whoa. Seriously…whoa. That girl walked away and never bothered me again.  Dawn wanted to be my friend and wasn’t afraid of the possible consequences. She made her decisions on her own, with no care of the masses. And to this day, she is one of my soul sisters. Thus began my journey back to trusting, finding friendship and creating solidarity with my fellow females.

And, Dr. Radin wants to move the momentum of that solidarity forward in a profound way. She wants girls to learn how to express their desires, fears, hopes and dreams in a constructive and empowering group dynamic that will make powerful leaders of our future women. She created the program “Unleashed” for this very thing.

After connecting with Dr. Radin, I have found myself daydreaming about what life would have been like for me, had she been around to inspire all those girls and direct their feelings into something positive. I know that I chose this life and that my journey included that horrible time. I also know that my journey included meeting and sharing Ms. Radin’s work so that girls and women, all over the world, will unite to embrace our feminine power…xoK

GVK, Judith Diana Winston & the sacred glyphs

gvk-final-01How could a little symbol change your life? Just ask Judith Diana Winston and she will tell you all about glyphs. Not only is Diana is a prolific author~

Meditative Magic;The Pleiadean Glyphs

The Keeper of the Diary

But she also received important transmissions and brought forth sacred geometry glyphs~ these glyphs hold energy to a particular aspect of consciousness. They are “ancient wisdom and knowing for the upliftment of Mankind and consciousness.” They bring your thought into alignment with the Divine. And we all know that we can’t change our behaviors until we change our thoughts.

When I was in training to be a channel for the LaHo~Chi energy, my teacher, Dan Watson, gave us two glyphs to add into our spiritual toolkit. For me, life is so much easier to flow with when I have tools to assist! I focused on the “Creativity” glyph, because, creativity is not only my livelihood, it is my life. I knew nothing about where this design had come from or what it truly held. However, I trusted that Dan would not steer us wrong. And so, I have worked with and received from the glyph for 8 years now. Whenever I am “blocked” that is to say, get in my own way, I get quiet and meditate on the glyph. I wrote my second solo show while using the assistance of the Creativity glyph.

Meditative Magic is a glyph workbook and you can take the glyph cards out to use easily. I may have started with only one glyph, but, now that I have access to all of them, I am tuning in, turning on and Receiving…xoK

GVK and The Miracle Chase take two

gvk-final-01Rounding out my Miracle Month, I have the blessing to have The Miracle Chase women back for a second time.  This important and beautiful topic needed more time to be heard.

I used to think that a miracle only meant something dramatic and larger than life.  And believe me; I definitely got them that way for a long time.  I think that my Higher Self knew that in the beginning of my awakening, if it wasn’t big, I would drift away.

Since the time of my awakening, I have a deeper perspective about miracles.  I see them everywhere now.  And as I see them in the more subtle aspects of life, I find them to be more profound.  The more I know of our complete connection with Everything, the more I am wowed by the Earth, her creatures and our life upon it.  Witnessing a butterfly, bee or bird pollinating my garden is a miracle.  The return of the raccoon and the skunk with their broods to the place that I feed them each year is a miracle.  They have been coming now for over 10 years!

I am grateful for the miracle of my friends.  Long ago, I could not look to my family to protect and love me, so, instead I found that my friends would fill that space.  The right people always showed up in the nick of time to help me redirect before I fell into the abyss of darkness.

Now that the Light is my source, I see the every day miracle and the Divine miracle and they are one in the same…xoK

GVK chats with The Miracle Chasers

gvk-final-01Having The Miracle Chase women on GVK felt itself, like a miracle! It was a profound honor to share in their personal miracles stories which lead them on their miracle quest.

So, what is a miracle really?

Definition
a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.
a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences.

And while a definition is all well and good, I prefer life to give me my answers. Miracles have shown up in my life forever, but, it was only when I was awake that I could recognize them as such. Frankly, having a spiritual practice in my life is a miracle.

I was so wild when I was younger. Unpredictable, a bit crazy, and very ungrounded. I always seemed to be flying off somewhere. I couldn’t stay still to save my life and by the time I was in my mid-twenties, my life was in dire need of saving. I was in a soul sucking desk job (my parents wanted me to have a real job and not an acting job), my boyfriend was cheating on me constantly (while telling me how much he loved and needed me) and I was drinking myself into oblivion.

But, my friend Jill gave me the book, Out On A Limb, by Shirley MacLain and life changed. That book opened the door and helped me say goodbye to the job, the boyfriend and that self-destruction. That book was a miracle in my life. It opened the door to a spiritual practice that I deepen every day. It is that practice of getting quiet where I learned to see the miracles all around me. Most of all, it helped me see the miracle of me. That I mattered. I counted. And if I count, then what I bring into this world counts too. And so I began the journey of bringing in Light to dispel the darkness that had become so familiar.

I encourage you to buy The Miracle Chase and share in Joan, Katie and Meb’s journey. Because as we share our stories, we share our connections and as we connect, we experience the miracle of One~ness…xoK

GVK and Sunny Dawn Johnston open to intuition

gvk-final-01Sunny Dawn Johnston knows intuition! She regularly converses with Angels and is quite comfortable with spirit communications. She is practiced in this awareness. But, what about everyone else in the world? Do you think this kind of practice is available to you? Trust me, it is! All you need to do is open up.

Let’s start with the definition

the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning

But, how does that actually work in your everyday life? With signs. A song, a license plate, an animal showing up…the list is endless in regard to how our spirit guides reach out. The communication will be specific to you and how you relate to your world.

I was recently selected to tell a story for a New Jersey story telling event. I always reach out to my Dad in the spirit world and ask him to sit in when I perform. I love his support in that way because he never got to see me tell my stories live. My stories are about healing the heart, healing the past and transmuting the pain and before he died, we transmuted the sorrows of our father daughter relationship. We made a new path for our energy so that we would not have to carry that burden into another lifetime.

Now, as some of you know, the way that my Dad shows up is as a red-tailed Hawk. So! there I am, walking into the building where I will be performing, and right in front of me is a car with a metal hawk spanning the top of the license plate, with the word the Hawk on the plate ~ I knew my dad was there!

So, I am open. Being open means listening. Not with just our ears, but, with our heart. I highly recommend reaching out to Sunny for guidance in how to open yourself to the guidance that is all around you. She can give you active tools ~ Invoking The Archangels ~ and even give you messages from a loved one who is now in the spirit realm. The time is now to expand how you receive…xoK

GVK soothes the inner child with Carolyn Riker

gvk-final-01The words of Carolyn Riker wash over me like a warm ocean wave. What she can do with words makes my soul sing. So! imagine my thrill when she came onto the show so that we could chat about the inner child.

Your inner child is a very active and vibrant part of your everyday life. And if you are not in touch with that inner child, that child will be running show and you won’t even know. Ever have an emotion well up that is so powerful that you can’t breathe? Yup, that’s your inner child needing to be heard. There is a saying “if it’s hysterical, then it is historical” ~ meaning that the issue that has brought you to your knees it is from your past.

The inner child ~ profound, unveiled, un~inhibited, free and shining ~ that’s how we come onto this earth. The child inside all of us has things to say; whether it’s joy and rainbows or sorrow from a pain that they did not understand. The first time I connected with my inner child, she reminded me that I that I love to lay on the grass and watch the clouds go by so,I brought that practice back into my life.

It is vastly important to begin the dialogue with that inner child because whether you know it or not that inner child drives your decisions, your feelings and your reactions. Unless you and that child are working together as a team and that child knows that it is loved and honored, you will find yourself reacting to things as if you were that child!

After my conversation with Carolyn, my husband called to discuss the school situation that we handled for my daughter just the day before. There’s still a great deal of emotion surrounding it and how she is experiencing her teen life. I stepped out of the car walked up to the door, and there, in my garden, were four goldfinches! My guardian angel shows up as the goldfinch. And because I am in communion with my inner child, she is always helping me to take pause and look around. And when I do, I see the wonder that only a child can see. I see that gift of reassurance from Mother Nature…xoK

Carolyn’s Poem
Nothing could take her from her daydreams
I saw her today.
We sat in a distant memory.
Quietly I watch her contemplate the universe; she held it in her eyes.
The cotton dress appeared sunny and her hair firmly tied until she could set it free.
She might have been about three. The apple of youth had fallen too soon from her favorite tree.
She sat closely with the stars and felt the earth move through her feet.
Nothing could take her from her daydreams.
Each blink we had was in rhythm; I felt her breath remove a pane of glass from my heart.
And in the softest voice I could find in my mind I told her how much I loved her.
She whispered back with eyelashes laced in morning dew, I love you too. I’m glad we made it this far.

GVK & Jenn Grosso explore the sacred of everyday

gvksacredTalking with Jenn Grosso, I am filled with hope and renewal. Jenn writes about the perils of the living, on her website and I can identify. Sometimes I am so overwhelmed with the how things appear out in the world, I feel like I can’t get off my couch!

I am horrified by the war on our Mother Earth, on our sacred animals and on our Divine humanity. Even without tuning into the news, I am fully aware of the suffering that is present now. I feel it. Sometimes it feels like it will swallow me whole. I can’t breathe! I fall into the illusion that as one person, I can not possibly affect change.

But then I remember. I remember that we are all Divine and all is in Divine order. I promise you that this is Truth.

Every right action filled with Love will vibrate out a thousand times bigger than it’s original intent.

Every piece of garbage I pick up, cleans our Mother. Every animal I help, saves the endangered. Every act of patience I give my children, heals the abused. Every act of compassion for my fellow beings mitigates the atrocities acted upon us all.

You have a choice. Become powerful with your choice. Change your world by experiencing the sacred in your every movement. Thich Nhat Hanh writes Peace is Every Step. Ram Dass tells us “The thinking mind is what is busy. You have to stay in your heart. You have to be in your heart. Be in your heart. The rest is up here in your head where you are doing, doing, doing.”

By being in your heart, you will find the sacred in the every day

Jenn’s Prayer:

may every step I take today,

be an offering of love

may my unfolding heart

continue to open further

 to let the whole world fit inside 

let it all be done with love

To read more of Jenn’s work, please also visit her on Be You Media Group. Please write your own affirming prayer to take you through your day. Share your Choice with me, share it with my listeners, share it with world…xoK

GVK connects the chakras to soul vows

highSoul-Vows-194x300It is so easy to feel the essence of the Divine when talking with Janet Conner ~ author of Writing Down Your Soul, The Lotus and The Lily, & Soul Vows. She walks her talk or lives what she writes about. And now she is focusing on vows. Soul Vows to be exact.

Janet is offering a 20% discount for her new Soul Vows tele-course. It begins on April 14th at 8pm est. Listen to the podcast for the code word to receive your discount. I look forward to connecting with you there!

What exactly is a vow? Well, I looked it up ~ it means an oath, a pledge, a promise, a bond, a commitment, a covenant. What could be more powerful than a covenant with oneself? I’m not just talking about some words but a covenant . Something sacred, something holy, something that reflects the Divine within ourselves. Lest we forget, and sometimes it sure seems like we have, Janet is here to remind us of our holiness.

Receive a full chakra rebalancing here ~ full chakra toning

We have spent eons cloaked in the darkness. And because of that, we be~lie~ve that we are unholy, unclean, unworthy. Nothing could be further from the Truth. We are sparks of Divinity meant to shine our unique Light onto the world in a positive way. But, we can not shine what we do not know. And that is where Soul Vows come in. It is a tool to accessing the Divine within the self and thus knowing the Higher Self. When you connect that with the chakras, then you have a powerful tool that raises the veil, unlocks the door and initiates your freedom from the dark. You are free from the lie that you are unworthy. It shines the Truth all around you. It shows you your inner Self, your holy Worth, your Divinity. Are you ready? Me too…

GVK explores how animals add to our lives

gvkanimalI loved talking with Uma Valerie Carruthers! Why? Because she is all about how important animals are in our lives. I can’t imagine life without animals. And I don’t just mean domesticated animals, I mean all animals! I love sitting with nature and just listening to the birds, watching the insects scurry, build & burrow,  becoming friends with the squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, skunks or who ever happens to be hanging out in my energy field. Animals are part of the very fiber of my being and utterly important to my existence.

As we awaken, as we become more conscious in our spiritual nature, as we live as spiritual beings as opposed to human beings, we begin to understand that we are connected to everything.  Everything communicates with us as we do with them. The animal world shows up to bring us love, to mirror things we need to transmute and to move us into an elevated vibration. They teach us compassion,  forgiveness and unconditional love~they open our heart chakras.

When I was living in Boston, one of my coworkers came into work crying. I went to comfort her and find out what was wrong. She said that on her way to work she saw a group of people gathered around a large cube of compacted garbage. From inside that cube, were the cries of a cat who had somehow been in the garbage when it was picked up and was then compacted with it, but was still alive. All the people gathered were frantically taking turns ripping the garbage away to get to the cat. The police had been called and they were on their way to help. My coworker had been helping, but, could not stay because she was already late for work. I assured her that people would stay until that cat was free. She went out to the spot at her lunch break ~ the people were gone, the was cat gone and there was a large whole in the garbage cube.

Every person who helped that cat had a heart opening. That cat affected a positive change of love in each and every person who helped it to it’s freedom. Some people opened up to more compassion and love, some people were able to be freed from something that bound them, and some people left with a sense that they matter in this world. Lives were changed. All of them. With the help of one little cat…

GVK explores those reoccurring life experiences

Molly McCord, author, astrologer and modern consciousness teacher reminded me that

we came here to experience all of it

gvk-final-01

Sometimes, when I get wrapped up in one of my human experiences, I forget that! Then I start thinking ~ I didn’t sign up for this, but, I know that I did. When an experience/theme keeps repeating itself, it is to remind us that this is a piece to the puzzle of our soul that we want to get clear about, so that we can move on to another level of enlightenment.

Speaking of enlightenment, my soul sister, Jillian, asked me once “Do you think we were ever outlaws in another life?” and I said absolutely! because~

our souls go through iterations of being~ness until we reach enlightenment

I think my intense dislike for authority came in with me so that I could learn how to make change in a positive way. The biggest part of me desires to create powerful positive change in a productive way, yet, there is this small part that wants complete anarchy! I’ve struggled with it all of my life.

Molly tells us that we also bring in themes to help us deal with the more challenging experiences. I believe that. We come in with gifts that help move us along with ease. So, even though I struggle with being an anarchist, the theme of helping others awaken with the tool of communication comes in to assist me on my souls journey. I believe that it is designed for us to triumph. We simply need to focus on what our strengths are, understand our challenges and move forward with a desire to awaken…xoK
