Kristin and Green Diva Meg dream a big dream

I love talking about dreams. And by dreams, I mean the kind you long for, the one that gets you up in the morning ~ the one that makes your soul sing. We all have that thing that we Know that if we could just find a way to make it happen, life would be sweeter. Sometimes we put it away because life seems to hurtle us to another dimension, but, that thing, the thing that you still hold close to your heart, it is still inside you waiting to be born.

My dream was a long time in the making. I had to go through a lot of transmutting before I could find my true Voice and let my True Self shine through. I have had zillions of jobs from every possible venue as I have moved along in my life. My Soul Sister, Jillian, keeps asking me to write a book about the wonderful, insane and life changing experiences I have had (maybe someday, but, I think it would make a better movie!) Each one of them helped me hone my gift of storytelling. When I look back, it was the jobs that gave me the most pain that moved me closer to where I wanted to be because it was a booming example of what I did not want. And as I gathered information on what I did not want, it helped me become clear about what I did want. But, for me, the Dream is more than what I want (because if I had gotten all that I wanted so far, I would have drastically shortchanged myself) but, it is something that personifies who I Am. Which leads me to knowing myself on the Soul level. It leads to the clarity that I Am Divinity made manifest on this Earth here and now, and understanding that leads me to the Dream that supports what makes me special as that Divinity. And it took me a long time to see myself in that realm, and frankly, sometimes I forget and get mired in my human experience. But! That is where my soul friends and my partner in life, Jeff, come in!!! 

So, to all of you Dreamers ~ bring it forth and manifest your deep high vibrational desires to spread joy and love onto this Earth!!

Good Vibrations gets Divine with Janet Conner part 2

GVK continues the conversation about Divine Guidance with Janet Conner because we were all so fired up about what that means to each of us. Janet reminds us that quiet and solitude are the best way to receive Divine Guidance.  It is the easiest way to be that open channel. For her, quiet is in the shower, driving or early morning, just as she is coming up from the delta sleep It was during this time that Janet heard a voice that told her ~ ‘your soul wants 5 things’

to connect with Source, to commit to value, to serve a purpose, to express yourself, your soul wants to create life.

Since that voice spoke to her, Janet has been creating courses to implement these five things into your life, and I will add, to add them with Joy!

We discuss that we, as souls, decide to come here! We decide to incarnate and be this person in this life at this time. Being You is the only thing that you have to do. Being You is a very important piece of the puzzle of life. I think this is a very important realization. So, often we hear or we say, ‘I didn’t ask to come here’, ‘I didn’t ask to be born’. No so my friends, not so.  

We talk about the fact that everyone Creates!!! Janet’s books and seminars and courses are from the original teachings of Buddha (Lotus) and Jesus (Lily), who taught how to create a beautiful and abundant life in the exact same way. I believe that Janet is living her Divine purpose by opening our awareness to a way to consciously create with Divinity.

Above is a picture of Divine Guidance in my life this week that was presented in a way that I would see and receive it ~ I had a very emotionally challenging week with my 12 year old daughter. She is having deep emotions as she moves into this new facet of her growth, and she is still learning how to feel her feelings in a productive way. What that really means is that we had a week of turbulence and tears. By the end of the week, I was exhausted and was feeling very depleted and frankly a bit separate from the Divine. On Sunday, I began to cook a gourmet meal for the family, starting first with slicing an onion. When I got to the center of the onion, above is what I found ~two hearts!!!!!!

I understood. I am lovingly watched over, I am loved and all is in Divine order. No matter what struggles we are faced with, our access to that Divine love is everywhere and it is our birthright to tap in and receive..

GVK & author Janet Conner – divine guidance part 1

Having Janet Conner, author of the lotus and the lily was energizing to say the least!  We had to move it into a second podcast because there was so much more to say! We started with what being Divinely guided to each of us and then threw in a zillion examples of how we experienced that guidance. For Janet, she hears a very clear Voice talking to her in the waking up moments of her morning, or while she is driving. These are times when her mind is at rest and she is not focused the logistics of her day. I believe that Divine guidance comes in a way that we will understand and for each of us it will be different. The most important thing we discussed is that Divine Guidance is available constantly and is available for everyone. Being Divine manifestations of All That Is, it is our birthright to receive guidance from our source of power and light. Being open to that guidance is quite another story though. We talked about how easy it was to see outside the physical realities here on Earth when we were children, but, that over time, we lost our Knowing. My re~awakening was in my early 20’s. After a book dropped in my lap, things began to unfold at a rapid pace. I began to have preminatory dreams and talk with spirits in my sleep. I got my first “Voice” experience when I was in life threatening danger. That Voice told me to run in the opposite direction from where I was heading and it was explosively loud with in my head, so ignoring it was impossible! It wasn’t until I was home that evening that I learned the actual danger I was in. Janet remebers that intuative healer, Caroline Myss, believes that we are guided all the way to what apple we decide to eat!

We talked at length at how the book the lotus and the lily is a tool to help us get in touch with that Divine Guidance. Janet is offering a worldwide teleseminar about the lotus and the lilly workbook starting on 11/18/2013. For every person who signs up, she will give away one seminar for free. Do you and a friend want to access a tool that will change your life for the better? You can sign up two for one or sign up alone and let Janet “pay it forward” for someone else. I hope you decide to join in ~ I will be there…

GVK & Joanie Eisinger dig deep on healing

It was great to have Joanie back in the studio! This go around, we talked more about healing and took it deeper. We agreed that it all comes down to what we are taught, yes, but, I feel it is more than that. It is about what we understand and what we have forgotten. Which brings up the subject of the ascension. Some time ago, when I was in training for the LaHo~Chi energy that I channel, I had asked my teacher, Dan Watson, (cofounder of the LaHo~Chi Institute) for his opinion on the “ascension” and the theories of the 2012 (aka the end times). He said, “Kristin, we are always ascending. This is just a continuation of that process, as there is no true end to us therefore, there is no end to ascension.” Hmmm, that made sense to me. I feel, however, that this particular section of our ascending to a 5th dimensional state is pretty intense and the shift for humanity feels much more palpable than it was feeling to me in the beginning of my spiritual searching in my 20’s. So! back up for a minute to what we are taught. Well, we are taught what we know at this time in our human evolution. However, it is time to take that quantum leap in evolution and  remembering what we forgot about being Divine Beings. For Joanie, some of her leaping came from studying the works of Frederick Perls and his work with Gestalt Therapy.  This form of therapy moved away from talk therapy into an action that allowed the patient to be in the present instead of reliving the same old experience over and over. And that subject got us back to healing! Because I am always wanting the solution, whether it be to healing our physcial selves, our emotional selves or our spiritual selves.

In remembering our Divinity is to embrace our perfection ~ which means that we have the ability to step out of the vibration of disease and lack into abundance and health.  And it is our perspective of who we are that leads to that shift. We see ourselves in our perfection of the moment ~ here and now and the shifting begins. Joanie called us “God Sparks” and I Love that image! That all of us are bursting forth from All That Is to Create and Be. What we are starting to awaken to is that while we experienced this being on Earth, our bodies began holding energy from events of this life and past lives. This holding pattern of karma is a great cause of our dis~ease.

I feel that this part of the asension process is about releasing the energetic pattern around those events to relcaim our Divinity and Know our perfection, our “God Spark”. When we fully awaken, and Know that Divinity, all things associated with lack (war, poverty, abuse, victim mentality) will fade away and become unneccasary…

GVK & Elizabeth Murphy talk about dreams

Elizabeth Murphy calls herself the “organization whisperer” and I call her a facilitator of dreams. She has helped numerous organizations from health to the arts by bringing their dreams into a reality. And that got us talking about dreams ~ what they mean to us and the messages we have received. Elizabeth and I have all experienced premonitory dreams ~ dreams that give you a slice of the future. Elizabeth had a dream that was a slice of a day from September 11th, the day the Twin Towers fell in New York City. She had this dream for years, until the actual day when it manifested. My premonitory dreams feel Super alive. The colors are more vivid, the sounds more crisp and I feel ultra alert in them. Elizabeth and I have come to listen to our dreams and look to them to guide us through our waking lives. Or as Elizabeth says ‘live in the world behind our eyes’. Elizabeth talks about how the teachings of Caroline Myss the medical intuitive, changed her perspective and helped her embrace what is unseen in our lives. Carolyn asks do we want to have an “au de toilet, cologne or a perfume” life.  And we all agreed that the perfume life is something we all desire and that life will look different for everyone.

Elizabeth had always wanted to write poetry and had the great fortune to meet and talk with poet Seamus Heaney and be inspired by him. We talked about the book One Wild Life by Clare Mulvany and taking the leap into your desired life.

GVK with Eric Ruhalter author of Phrazzlers

Laughter was the medicine of the day when I talked with Eric Ruhalter, the author of the book Phrazzlers. This is a book of words that Eric made up to describe the crazy things kids do, from the parent perspective, like~ “peehearsal” ~ one of the frequent accidents that occur before potty training is successfully completed.

We laughed a great deal during this conversation! Mine and Eric’s children are in the teen years. But, oh, the book brought us back!! And while it made us laugh, we also talked about the loneliness of parenting. Eric’s discovery that the book made parents feel less alone was awesome. It was a gift that he was not expecting.

Sticks and stones can break my bones, but, words will never hurt me ~ I believe that adage is grossly incorrect. In my teen years, I was deeply hurt by words thrown at me and about me. Words carry energy and that energy spirals around and since energy does not die, what happens to the negative things we say in haste or judgement or pain? I think it swirls around out there until it is transmuted and shifted. Eric’s book is a great way to transmute some of that negativity and add joy to the world. It is a way to tip the balance in favor of positive energy. Those early years of parenting were very lonely and very stressful. Everything is always happening for the first time, because each child is different! I feel that we have lost something valuable with how our society parents today. We tuck the primary care giver away (in my case, most of us were women) in their homes, with “playdates” here and there to break up the monotony and confusion of parenting. Here I was a hard core career woman, avidly pursuing my acting career when I had my first child. All the books and seminars could never have possibly prepared me for how my life changed when Landon was born! It was so much of a world spinner that I wrote a solo show about it called

Baby, Oh Baby 

that explored the surprises of new parenthood! More on that another day. Until then, check out Eric’s youtube promo video for the book called~

GVK & Julie Genovese – shifting perspectives

I am so happy to have Julie Genovese, author of Nothing Short of Joy back on GVK!

Julie has a great phrase called ~ going to the “Spiritual Pub”. Meaning that we go to a place in the spirit realm to pick different things that would be interesting or growth experiences for the soul. For her it was dwarfism. She thought that would be a great adventure as she was looking at her choices up at the “pub”. Yet, when she got here, she forgot that she thought it would be great and got mired up in “being different” and then explored the feelings of that for a time. Of course, then comes the shift in perspective! Looking at a situation from our Higher Self experience can shed light on our choices and bring more peace.

I love the spiritual teachings of Pemma Chodron which help us see life in a different light and therefore give up the illusion of separate~ness. I feel that we have contracts with people to help us along our path to enlightenment here. Those people seem like the least likely to be our “helpers”, but, their interactions in our lives bring about the most profound awakenings. There have been so many times that I have wondered “why would I pick this!” so, believe me, it is not always easy to see the Higher view on these things!! Meditation and prayer help me tremendously. And I am blessed to have friends and a fabulous husband who help me stay balanced. They give me a safe place to bounce ideas and feeling off of. And it is always wonderful to meet someone like Julie and fold her into my circle…

GVK & Louisa Oakley Green, author of Loitering at the Gate to Eternity

For Louisa Oakley Green, author of Loitering at the Gate to Eternity, the process of coming to believe that there is more to life than meets the eye was a slooooooow process. Married to a psychic who comes from a long line of seers, she ultimately witnessed so many psychic happenings that she could no longer deny life beyond the physical self. In her book, she interviews  psychics from all walks of life.This not only validates what she Knows to be Truth, but, it opens up the door for the skeptical, the non believer, and the even the secret psychic who walk among us. She may feel that she is the bystander of the family, but, I believe that writers tap into the spiritual realm and become a channel for what comes forth and therefore is not as much of a bystander as she thinks she is!!

For me, as soon as I read Out on a Limb by Shirley MacLaine my life changed. My soul sister Jillian and I would talk for hours about Ms. MacLaine’s experiences. The book awakened my dormant psychic and I will be forever grateful. I began to understand the feelings, hunches, dreams and visions that I had always carried with me. I began to study about the psychic experience and open my soul to my latent gift. I stopped thinking that I was weird! And I also stopped being afraid. I had psychic experiences as a child but because I did not understand them, I became afraid and shut most of it down. But, seriously, it seeped into everything I did anyway! During this time of psychic awakening, I had a dream that my boyfriend at the time was going to cheat on me. He called me to say that he was going to the library for the day and I said “no you’re not. you are going to meet Marisa at the train and go to lunch with her.”  He was stunned! He felt pretty uneasy after that and eventually we went our separate ways. Which was great because, Jeff, my husband and the love of my life, was only a few years away from me at that time. In fact a psychic told me about Jeff! He said that my soul-mate was was younger than me, worked in the business world and that that he was going to love me for me. Even though I thought he was wrong about the business part (I always thought I’d marry someone in the arts ~haha!), I knew he was right about the soul mate, because I could feel him close by energetically. Sure enough, Jeff is younger than me and in the business world.

GVK & Kate Braemer – kids in need

 

Kate Braemer is the camp director at the Garrett Williamson Foundation for the under-served children in the Philadelphia area. She and I talked about working with these children by expanding their world experiences. For some of these children their only meal of the day will be at camp. Because of this, Kate has been making big changes in the menu and teaching the children about health and nutrition. She switched from white bread to whole wheat. She has the kitchen making soup and tomato sauces from scratch. She and the campers not only care for the onsite garden, but they eat from it too! Kate is instituting these changes, which will echo into the children’s communities. This raises awareness about health and lower potential instances of obesity. The children are part of a community service program which helps them connect with their environment in a positive way. They participate by picking up garbage they find on the Earth.

Supporting our children is the most important way to institute positive change in our world. And by our, I mean all children. They are the new world leaders and I believe they hold the answers to the issues that trouble us today. Before talking with Kate I was reminiscing about when my son was young and how easy it was for him to march to his own drummer. My experiences with my children showed me that by supporting them with acceptance and love was only the tip of the iceberg. Good nutrition, Earth consciousness, and social awareness play a big role in allowing them to become the leaders they were born to be. When we instituted a recycling program at our elementary school, the children not only picked up the rhythm instantly, but then were instrumental in keeping the teachers up with the program! This year, in parts of the northeast, we experienced the 17 year cicada. The teachers read stories about the cicada and talked at length to the children about their incredible journey. On the playground, there were hundreds of cicadas flying and crawling. Children in grades K-5 would carry these cicadas all over their arms and shoulders, bringing them to the safety of trees. The care and gentleness was inspiring. The children understood the delicate rare cycle of these creatures and honored them. If they can understand and love something so different from themselves, then loving another human who is a different color or religion is an absolute reality. And that is going to be our answer. Co~existence with those we share the Earth with, including our own species.  

The Garrett Williamson Foundation takes donations of every sort for these children in need. Do you have toys that your children have outgrown? Clothing? Furniture? Please reach out to them ~

GVK and Samantha Jones- being true to ones self

I had the utmost privilege to work with Samantha Jones ~ www.therealsamanthajones.com ~ when she directed my last solo show 

You CAN get there from here… 

So to chat with her on my podcast was nothing less than exhilarating! This woman does it all ~ she directs, acts, coaches improv, and writes her own solo shows. And there is no better person to talk with about celebrating who you are, than Samantha. She helps people find the hilarious in the mundane and recognize the Divine in their own stories. I went to her with a fully formed script and a few performances under my belt, but I knew something was missing. Samantha saw that the missing piece of puzzle was me! She said to me “I watched 20 minutes of your (videotaped) performance and you were like a lion in a cage. Back and forth, back and forth on stage, ready to explode. I knew just how to help you!” She fully embraced my power and helped me own it.  The fully dynamic and lightning energy me. My performance and message became all that I had dreamed it could be!

I believe that we come into this world excited to be Who We Are, and then events occur that either make us forget or make us not want to be exactly who we came to be. For me, it was both. The brutality of my teen life shifted me into someone who had to survive, and not being me seemed the safest way to do just that. Sigh. Looking back, I realize that even when I was trying not to be me, pieces came bursting out, like singing at the top of my lungs to my favorite song everywhere I went. When I left the suffocation of the small town I lived in, I began searching, seeking, and questioning the things I had been told about who I was. I explored the psychic & spiritual world and found a place that I belonged. Those people weren’t overwhelmed by my passion, confused by my psychic gifts, or blown away by my visions.Then the world became a different, accepting, and more loving place to be.  

There is no more powerful way to raise the vibration of our world than to fully honor who we came here to be. I know that being our authentic self is the best way to honor the Divine. There is only one you on this planet. This is the only time you will be this You so dive in and celebrate! 

Listen to the podcast and embrace the power of You.
