GVK explores the bs of beliefs with Julie Genovese

Belief Systems, or BS, as our dear friend Julie Genovese, likes to call it and I wholeheartedly agree.  As my spiritual practice deepened, I noticed that I would say things and not know if that was how I truly felt.  So, I started exploring my thoughts, and most of them were about my own self, and discovered that most of those beliefs were placed there by another. 

We come into this world ready and excited for the human adventure.  We are fresh from our Higher Self, All That Is and our Guides.  We are shiny and prepared.  Then life begins to happen and all the things we knew before we came drift away. We get caught up in the drama unfolding.  We experience pain, sorrow, love, joy, disappointment and triumph.  And we be~lie~ve that this is all there is.  We be~lie~ve the stories that people tell us about ourselves and forget that we are Divine.

Well, my friends, it is time to REMEMBER!  Take a look at those dusty and moldy ideas that others put upon you and Know your Divine Self.  Who put them there and when? More often than not, you will find that the be~lie~f is one from a very young and tender age. Throw it all out and start fresh from the viewpoint of Divinity.  From that place, you will come to know your worth.  You will come to understand how sacred your journey is and that no one can have this particular journey besides you.

Doing this type of thinking, living, Being takes practice at first.  Always it takes consciousness.  We must be aware of how we represent our energy in the world because what we put out in the world is the only true thing that we have control over…xoK

GVK rides up the chakra river with Janet Conner

I was so blown away by the information that Janet Conner shared regarding chakras that I was speechless for most of this podcast! I was most moved by her experience with Swan and the 6th chakra.

Janet is the author of The Lotus and the Lily and Writing Down Your Soul.

In Native American lore, Swan, as a duckling, enters the Void and surrenders to Great Spirit’s vision. She trusts what she is shown and is thus transformed into a graceful elegant white bird.

When I entered my teen years I couldn’t have felt more like an ugly duckling if had tried. It wasn’t about what I looked like on the outside however, it was about how I felt on the inside. My parents thought I was weird and couldn’t find a common ground to communicate with me. Teachers found me frustrating. And there were factions of the student population that simply wanted me dead. I believe that was the first time that I entered the Void. I had to Know who I was at a time when knowing who you are is the biggest struggle of your life.

I did not experience the Void as gracefully as Swan did my first time in. I didn’t want to be different. I didn’t want to have strange dreams with spirits talking to me. I didn’t want to know what people were feeling before they did. I didn’t want to grieve the Earths torture. I didn’t want to have Big emotions and Big feelings. I just wanted to be normal. Sigh. Normal, I am not ~ and today I celebrate that. But, the remembering of who I Am took time, healing and love.

I have been shown many things during my excursions in the Void. But the thing that I take to my heart and have instituted into my life is to Trust that I matter. Trust that I am an integral part of this wonderful, heartbreaking, exciting, maddening and empowering adventure called Life. And that all the crazy, painful, strange, exciting experiences I have will be transmuted into healing through my storytelling. when I share my experiences through storytelling, I lead people to a healing. I am here to bridge the gap between human and spirit ~to lead people to remembering their Divinity…

GVK hears the Angels with Emma Kupu Mitchell

Emma Kupu Mitchel was with us today on GVK and what a treat it was!  Emma shines her light by healing with the sound of bowls.  With the vibration of the bowls, she then tunes into the vibration of the Angels and receives messages.

I believe that we can all access the Divine realm and “hear” the Angels, the Ascended Masters and All That Is.  However, it does take learning to perceive in a different way.  It takes moving our focus away from the everyday desires, wishes, needs of our human life and open up to an expanded vision.

Expanding the senses and letting the ego part of our existence takes practice and commitment.  It takes a desire to view the world in a different way, in a Grander way.  And of course, it then means that we will be experiencing ourselves in a more profound way as well.  Knowing that you matter, that you make a difference when you shine your Light on this Earth is the way to the Divine.  It is a simple direct way of opening up to a bigger picture than what lays in front of you.

When I hear people say, “what can I do”, “what difference can one person make”, “what does it matter” ~ I am reminded of Mother Teresa, Muhatma Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln.  I also think of Emma Mitchell, who opens her heart to the guidance of Angels by the ringing of a bowl.  And with that opening, she shares that guidance with all of us who have yet to hear in the way that she does.  And that guidance gives us hope, encouragement, comfort and Love.  One person can do Anything!

GVK looks into the future with the 6th chakra

The sixth chakra is a gateway into the future.  The color is a deep indigo blue and the element is light.  This chakra sits in the center of the brow, creating a triangle with the eyes. The sound associated with it is a soft o ~ ooooo. When spinning freely, this chakra opens awareness on a multidimensional level, fully immersing us in the bigger picture vision of life as a Soul.  It is also the gateway to Dreams.

Since I can remember, I have had vivid and profound dreams.  A reoccurring dream of mine that followed me into my college years was a cacophony of voices of all different pitches calling my name over and over and over.  I found it absolutely terrifying as a child, but, came to understand much later that the voices were souls reaching out to me.  I believe that they were reaching out in support, because the “dream” always came through when I was in deep despair and stress. 

The sixth chakra opens us to the future and then to possibility.  If we are sitting in a place of hopelessness, our sixth chakra is out of balance.  I recently read an article about a hard core, long time environmental activist, Paul Kingsnorth, giving up and falling into despair.  Sigh.  I found myself falling with him as I read the article, but, then said “WAIT!  I need a rebalancing of my third eye.”  Because clear vision helps us see beyond what the material world presents, it helps us see things in a Divine light.

Now, on my spiritual journey, I can almost always to see beyond what is presented to me in the physical world.  Being able to open to that kind of Vision helps me continue to do my part in making this world a more conscious and balanced place.  To keep my focus on what I Am doing, not on what I can’t do.  Some time ago, I spoke with an old colleague of mine.  His daughter was turning 10 and mine was just born.  I was remarking how wonderful it was to be a child today because of the awareness around parenting that our parents did not possess.  He freaked out at me exclaiming “Are you kidding?! It’s a horrible time to bring kids into the world. Everything is a mess, we are going to run out of water and the only thing our kids will inherit is pollution!”  Who do you think needed a 6th chakra balancing…

GVK gets charged up with Zach Lichtmann, author of Dynamo

Zach Lichtmann brought a dynamic energy to GVK so it is no surprise that his first novel is called Dynamo. And he brings that dynamic force to living his dream.  Megan and I were totally inspired talking with Zach about how he found his way to becoming a published writer, and a damn good one at that.

I believe that living your dream and your passion is the key to a fulfilling, happy and productive life.  Once I found my passion for telling stories through acting I went at with my full being.  My parents were concerned.  How would I make a living? What if it never worked?  What kind of a job is acting?  They were not happy and wanted me to have a “backup” in case this thing didn’t work out. 

My dreams of “telling a story” through acting never waivered, but, it did go through a metamorphosis.  Having children shifted my passion for the life of a struggling actress.  Long hours and late nights with little pay meant not being with my children and that was not something that felt good in my heart.  I had been a struggling actress for close to 20 years.  I felt that the Universe was telling me something when I was asked to come to a 10 hour rehearsal for a 5 minute role of the sleeping nurse on stage.  That meant 12 hours away from my new born baby.  So, I stepped away from it all.  Had I been super successful, it may have played out differently.  But, I trust the Universe, even if it is showing me something that I don’t think I want. 

Soon after walking away, a play began to write itself in my head.  With the encouragement of my beautiful husband, Jeff, I wrote it down and invited 50 friends/family members to bear witness to my new direction in life.  I told them all before I began that I really didn’t know if this was going to be good and that I would let their reactions be my guide.  I received a standing ovation with not a dry eye in the house.  I had my answer.

And so began a new direction of the same passion.  GVK is yet another path of that same passion.  Who knows where it all leads, but, I will keep living my dream Knowing that All That Is rejoices when a soul shares it’s Light in it’s own unique way…

GVK speaks loud and clear with the 5th chakra

chakra fiveThe fifth chakra ~ The color is sky blue, the element is air ~ and it is my favorite!  And not only because I communicate for a living.  Leading others by spreading a high vibration with my words and thoughts, whether it be with performing or in my home environment is part of my souls purpose here on Earth.  

It took me a long time to find my way to a Soul Purpose that felt good to live in. And communicating a Higher Truth feels comfortable for me.  That communication is as much about what I send out as what I send in to myself. My teen years where hellish and I received messages on a regular basis of how I wasn’t good enough.  Like anything that is played over and over again, a groove became imprinted in my psyche that put me in a loop of that feeling.  Moving myself out seemed a task that couldn’t be accomplished and then my spiritual journey went into full force and I found my way.

And I believe that because I found my way, it was my Soul Purpose to help others find theirs.  I once told my Mom that the things that have happened to me, have happened for a reason ~ and that reason was to lead others out of the darkness.

The fifth chakra leads us out of the darkness with voice, sound, intention and purpose.  How are you putting forth your energy?  Do you give yourself loving thoughts and messages?  Remember, what you put into yourself is what you echo out into the world.  The more that we give ourselves love and tolerance, justice and peace, the more that vibration will spread outward and before you know it, we will be living As Above, So Below…

GVK goes with the flow with Samantha Jones

Here we are with Samantha Jones talking about allowing life to flow and the challenges that we encounter as we strive for that state of being. I believe that all things are connected and that every aspect of our lives is important as it carries us to the next level on our path to enlightenment. I make decisions at a time and place with the knowledge and information I have gathered thus far. I have not always used the wisdom that I have inherently, but, that again becomes part of the experience I am in at the moment. I know that every person I have encountered has in some way influenced how I move forward. Not all of those interactions have been pleasant. In fact, for a very long time, they were devastating. Yet they afforded me a wealth of information, not only about the people and situations around me, but, also about myself. Staying positive and Trusting come from the Knowing that we are in the hands of the Divine. That we can not make a bad choice. We are simply choosing and the bad/good labels come from without us. I think we can sit in the dark and experience that to give us a greater contrast to the Light. And why not? It certainly makes life interesting!! My earlier years were not easy, but, boy, they were interesting! My life is still interesting, but, I find more grounded ways to experience it. Most importantly is to know that everything that I have experienced has lead me to where I am today and I would not change one piece of it because then I might not be able to join in vibration with all of you!

GVK divinely conversing with Caroline Fairless part 2

It is always fun to be so involved in our conversation that we want to continue into the following week! Continuing on the path of how the Divine shows up, Caroline Fairless, brings us to learning from the Earth on how to “be” in a Divine way. We touched on how in the winter things seem to be “dead” but, in fact things are merely sleeping, resting, gestating and going within to become ready for the explosion of Spring.  Quiet time of winter gives us permission to be spend more time on the things we do not easily find time for in the warmer weather. And what does that have to do with the Divine? Well, in the past, I had trouble sitting in the stillness of the winter. I would often find myself feeling “blue” and restless. On one very, very quiet winter I was thinking that maybe my Higher Self and All That Is had forgotten about me. I moped around for a few months and then just gave in to the quiet. I meditated in the quiet, and at that time could not “hear” the Divine’s call. I continued my intense (always!!) conversations with All That Is. Still, I heard nothing. Sigh. Then on a whim, I bought some pussywillow branches. I threw them in water, also on a whim, because they are no longer living so they don’t need water. Then I put them in a corner. I walked by them for a month truly appreciating their soft beauty until one day I noticed what looked like white mold in the water around the branches. I thought ‘oh no! I’ve left them in the water too long’. So I pulled them out of the water and to my astonishment, saw that the white surrounding the branches were hundreds of roots!! A friend was visiting that day and she said to me, “Kristin, God is talking to you.” Yes, I said, I know. And I did. It was a powerful affirmation that All That Is, is ALWAYS with me, even if I think that I can not hear it. I ended up putting those pussywillow branches in a pot and she grew all summer, then in the fall, I placed her in my garden where she has grown into a young, strong beautiful tree. Any time I think that the Divine has forgotten about me, I go outside and look at that lovely tree and my heart fills with gratitude…

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…

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~
