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 explores trusting yourself

gvk-final-01Jennifer Urezzio and I explored the topic of trusting one’s self. Trusting the self takes practice. We certainly came into the world trusting ourselves, but, life happens and we start to lose ground.

I’ve got a gabillion experiences around Not trusting myself and all the trouble I got into because of it. The inner voice is the Truth, but, sometimes it just does not make sense. OR, in my case when I was younger, I simply did not care about the consequences and moved forward anyway.

I have definitely explored the dark side of life to see what it held, even though my inner voice or my Self, was screaming NO!! Seriously, sometimes my life played out like a scary movie, sans the monsters. Although, I did meet some humans along the way that could have doubled for monsters. And it was those experiences that left me wondering how I could ever make a sane choice and trust it again.

The key is sane. Most of the time that I was meeting and having uncomfortable experiences, I was wasn’t grounded. I wasn’t caring for myself in a healthy way emotionally or physically. So, when the voice came in to move me in a different direction, I was too fuzzy to truly hear it. Now, on a few occasions, that voice Screamed at me to wake me up, which is how I met my husband, Jeff (hooray Voice!).

Regardless of where you are in your process, Know that your inner self wants your highest good. You are not being “tested” (a term that I despise) by some outside force! You are here to thrive, so take a deep breath. Get a meditation practice underway, and learn to pick up the signals that are all around you to guide you into well being and love. Unless of course, you still want to wander around in the murkiness of uncertainty and fear. Want is the operative word here.

Jennifer has created a language of the soul to help you know who you are at your core which helps you maneuver in this world a lot more easily! Who doesn’t want more ease? I pick up every tool available to me and try it on for a while to see if it helps me be in the world in a more profound way. I have found Jennifer’s tool to a worthwhile investment!

GVK Heals Through Horses

Judy Schneider knows horses. She also knows healing. When the two of these energies combine, you have alchemy.

Judy’s next Weekend Women’s Warrior Retreat is May 29~31

What is it about horses that makes us feel so good? For me, it goes into a deeper layer of existence. It is a connection to my Native American past life. It harks back to a time when people lived in harmony, not only with each other, but, with the Earth. It is flying on the ground, with the wind whipping around me, breathing the deep clean air, perceiving with my sixth senses, as I trust Horse to carry me. It is Power. It is Freedom.

And with that memory quietly beckoning me in my dreams, it is heartache

I would muck out the stalls at the local horse racing barn for hours just for the honor of brushing down the horses at the end of the day. During the uncertain times of my early teens, nothing was stable. My emotions were in turmiol, my heart ached, and my body was becoming something new. The only thing that grounded me were the horses.  It was a comfort to be with these magnificent animals.  I didn’t realize that they were interacting with me on an energetic level. All I knew is that I felt better after being with them.

There are so many ways that pieces of us break off and hide away. So many ways that we forget our Holiness. But, Horse never forgets. Horse lives It’s majesty and reminds us of our Divine heritage.

“…In understanding he power of Horse you may see how to strive a balanced medicine shield…Compassion, caring, teaching, loving and sharing your gifts, talents and abilities are a the gateways to power.”

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
