GVK spreads the Light with Father Tim

Sharing the Light. I did not understand what that meant 20 years ago. I understood about feeling good or feeling bad, but, it never occured to me that how I went about my life actually vibrated out and effected the outcome of that day. And how it effected the outcome of others days.  What I have come to understand about spreading energy is that what kind of energy I send out depends on how consciously I am moving through my day. When I first came upon this concept, I reacted with superiority ~ Conscious? Of course I am conscious! ~ I am awake and breathing and talking! But, truly, that is simply existing. I had no idea that my every thought created the whole universe that surrounded me. That universe included the negative and disparaging thoughts implanted by my blood family and other outside people, that I kept alive and well in my head. And as I let those thoughts run on with abandon, I was creating a universe that mirrored and supported those thoughts. And all the time thinking that the problem was with the world outside of me. As I continued on my spiritual seeking path, I began to experience Lightness of Being and began to truly see the cause and effect of my thinking. I began to experience the beauty of sharing my Light as opposed to throwing around my Darkness. I became awakened to the Light all around me and longed to have that Light be the more powerful aspect of my day.

One of my favorite songs is “Bad” by U2 ~ it sums up to me what it feels to be Conscious. The word surrender moves through the song like a heartbeat as Bono sings:

If I could through myself 
Set your spirit free 
I’d lead your heart away 
See you break, break away 
Into the light 
And to the day 

I’m wide awake 
I’m wide awake 
Wide awake 
I’m not sleeping 
Oh, no, no, no 

For me, sharing Light means kindness to others around me. The “others” could be people/birds/squirrels or Mother Earth. It also means kindness to myself. The rewards of spreading Light far out way the momentary gratification of making others wrong and blame. Hear this, my friends ~ Consciousness takes work. But, soon, like anything we strive for, work becomes play and habit becomes instinct. Are you ready to join me, because I AM wide awake…

GVK is center stage with the Light of Samantha Jones

Staying centered in the Light of the Divine ~ that was always the quandary of my existence. How, when all these bad things have happened or are happening to me do I stay positive or in the Light of the Divine? Sigh. When I began my spiritual quest in earnest, this question nipped at me heels on a regular basis. What I have come to understand is that everything I have experienced takes part in my Soul’s growth. The things that have been most challenging to my human self, have ultimately brought the most beautiful golden nuggets out in my being. The teen years, for many of us, are ripe with confusion and drama. My teen years were not only layered with “normal” teen feelings, but, a constant, unrelenting emotional and physical abuse from other teens. I thought that nothing good could have come from that place. Yet, as I dug into my spiritual & psychic practice, I began to open up to a bigger vision. I started to find that the teen experience had opened my empathic gifts fully. I was able to see a situation from the “underdogs” side of things. I was able to feel what others feel and relate to my environment on a whole new level of communication and awareness. I became passionate for justice and speaking my Truth. As difficult and painful as that time was for me, I believe that it was those exact experiences that brought out gifts that were dormant and needing opening. And as long as I remember to look at experiences from the Divine perspective, I can step into the Light that seems to be evading me. And by looking at a situation from the Divine perspective, I mean to be able to find out how this situation that I am experiencing is serving me in some way. While I admit, this is not an easy task in many circumstances, I have come to rely on this way of living life so that I do not fall into the trap of “poor me”. 

I love talking with Samantha about this because she exudes an air of positive vibration in all that she manifests, not only herself, but, with all the people that she works with. She does not deny that an experience was challenging, but, she definitely looks for a positive bend to it. And she brings laughter and joy to the forefront of the world, which we need in large quantities!

Currently, Samantha is working with the Self Employed Artists Conference, which is held in February in Chicago. She is running her Improv Empowerment Workshop and she is on a few panels. She will also be working one on one with artists there. Follow the embedded link below to learn how you can connect with Samantha in Chicago~

GVK gets our “om” on with Jeannette Howard

 

It was great to have yoga instructor, Jeannette Howard, at the studio!! She brought all kinds of ideas to the forefront of the conversation about staying centered during our crazy busy lives. One of the things we explored the Archangel Metatron’s cube which is sacred geometry. I can meditate on this for long stretches of time and I receive a different message every time. Try it for yourself!

As promised here is the meaning of Turkey totem ~ Turkey was the medicine of saints and mystics. Turkey transcends the self and acts on the behalf of others. Doing unto others and feeding the People is the message that Turkey brings forth. If Turkey shows up for you, then you are receiving a gift ~ whatever it is, it will not be insignificant. Maybe a rainbow is going to show up in your day or you will win a trip to an exotic island! Be on the look out and say Thank You when it appears.

We also talked about Labyrinths and the calming, centering effect one can receive walking through. I have had profound experiences in my labyrinth walks. Always I get the feeling of being lovingly watched over and once I heard a voice tell me to keep dreaming big and that I was being cheered on by the Angels! That came at a time when I was wondering about writing another solo show. The encouragement I heard was instrumental in the writing of   

You CAN get there from here…

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 & 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.

Kristin talks with psychic Corbie Mitleid / story by Kristin “My Dad, the Hawk”

Corbie Mitleid really fired up the conversation as we talked about how she came to talk with the people who have transitioned, got messages to loved ones for them and helped them release their energy from the Earth plane. She works closely with Robert Schwartz author of Your Souls Plan and Your Souls Gift. Corbie calls herself the “practical pyschic” as she brings grounded and clear care to all her clients, in every demension. And while she made me laugh and smile she is very serious about how her gift helps people of all walks of life through many situations.

Talking with Corbie reminded me of how my Dad, James Ace, (who transitioned almost 10 years ago) connects with me from the other side as the Hawk to support and help me in my life now and I want to share it with you~

Kristin talks with healer Joanie Eisinger

Joanie Eisinger, healer and author of Davids Guidance, and I laughed and talked about our journey of becoming the healers that we are today. Joanie experienced many physical challanges that brought her awakening. Louise Hay, Barbara Brennan and Wayne Dyer are some of the people we talk about as being guides when the “normal” way of healing and being in the world no longer resonated for us. Joanie broadened her spiritual views beyond her traditional Jewish upbringing to become the amazing channel, and healer that she is today!

the Dahlia

 

gvk-final-01The Dahlia is a story of hope. It is an experience that reminded me that all is in Divine order, I am lovingly guided and that even when I think things look barren, a world of growth is bursting forth. Being “in the hallway” or in the Void, as the Native Americans call it, can make us feel alone and lost, but! that could not be farther from the truth. For from the Void, Great Spirit emerged. It is from the Void that all creation was gestated and birthed. It is the place where imagination is free. It is where Swan entered an “ugly duckling” and emerged a magnificant beauty. And so, when things feel stuck or quiet, remember that you are in the midst of a great creation and it will birth itself when everything is aligned for your new adventure…pinkdahlia-600x288

Janet Conner author of lotus and the lily

Janet Conner and I talked about her divinely inspired book, the lotus and the lily. She shared with us how it came into being and how it not only changed her life, but, changed the lives of her readers ~ including me! I have been on a spiritual quest for most of my life, always seeking ways to move into a greater sense of who I AM and why I am here. This book  was not only a breath of fresh air, but, a solid guide on how to move forward, upward and beyond. No matter where you are in your life this book will elevate you, inspire you and help you become to best you that you can be. Janet is funny and inspiring and down to earth as she shares her journey with me. I am in enormous gratitude for the gifts she brings to the world and for the time she gave in our conversation!

Julie Genovese author of Nothing Short of Joy (podcast)

Julie Genovese, author of Nothing Short of Joy and I talked about NOT being a victim and truly loving who we came in to be. We marveled at how a cheerleader (me) and someone born with dwarfism (Julie) can still both be bullied and in my case, brutally. We explored how our shared experiences lead to her writing and my performing pieces that have a universal theme for our audiences.The themes of moving through the challenge, rising above the pain and pushing out the fear to create a beautiful life.  

Julie’s book is delightful and inspiring as she shares her struggles as a little person and how she came to Love the body she is in. She looked to Wayne Dyer and Ester Hicks (Abraham Hicks) for inspiration and guidance. Read this book!!!! and bring Julie’s energy (which is nothing short of joy!) into your life~
