Stepping into an Opening

IMG_3635

No matter how it appears from the outside, when an opening happens and it feels right, it’s right. If this situation unfolded at a different time, in a different way, under different conditions, it would feel different. The magic in the timing, the unfolding and everything about it is blowing my mind. If someone told me a year ago that this would be happening now, I would not have believed them. So, how do I know it’s right?

I feel it. I trust it.

The Divine is opening a door for tremendous healing, growth, love, appreciation and trust on levels I have not yet experienced and I am forever grateful. It’s happening and I am buckling up! It’s time!

Aho Mitakuye Oyasin!

Re-Birthing Ourselves

IMG_3580

Many of us have gone through the courtship phase of relationship with ourselves. We have gone through the committed relationship phase, the marriage and honeymoon phase, the consummation phase, and we have gone through the pregnancy phase. Now! Now we find ourselves going through active labour with ourselves. With spirit. With life. What do I mean by this?

We are re-birthing ourselves into a higher vibrational place. Into a place where we see ourselves and the world differently than we did before. We are perceiving reality from a higher frequency and we have to adjust our physical bodies and lives to be in alignment with the new reality.

The best way I can think of to illustrate this is to give a personal example.

Years ago, I was unhappy with life. I was unhappy with myself. I was in an unhappy relationship. I would go on two hour runs with a friend, come home, feel some relief, then wonder how I was going to change course. The courtship phase of relationship with myself was realising I was not happy, that I was not fulfilling my life’s purpose and did not know where to begin. It was like dating. You meet someone, go on a few dates and realise, no, this person is not the one, I am going to keep trying. I realised that version of myself was not truly who I was, who I wanted to be with, and I needed to find the me who’s in alignment with Source, the me who is happy and fulfilling my life’s purpose, the real me.

After a run one Monday night, I decided to listen to an interview Oprah had with Eckhart Tolle, an interview that changed the course of my life. I don’t recall details but I remember thinking to myself that this is it. Now or never. I am committing to myself regardless of the difficulties and challenges that will arise. Somehow I will get through. The committed relationship phase of this process was deciding that I am important enough to embark on this sacred journey with myself. I did not know what was to come but I began the process of working on myself, my spiritual path, and taking baby-steps to change my life.

The marriage phase was going through highs and lows, sometimes falling off the wagon but picking myself up, dusting off and starting again. I was in it for better or worse. I was committed. This phase lasted a long time and included many ups and downs. Some of the ups included new friendships and experiences, retreats, finding myself, and enjoying the simple things life had to offer. Some of  the lows included health issues, the ending of relationships and not being fulfilled at work resulting in the decision to quit my job and embark on my Journey of Love.

The moment I took this step, embarking on the journey, the honeymoon phase kicked in. My heart was crying for such an opportunity. When I concurred my fears, listened to my heart and put my trust and faith in God, moments of synchronicity began unfolding like never before. I was happy. I was enjoying life. I felt at peace with myself. I was learning who I really was. The more these moments happened, the more I trusted and the more faith I had. As Jesus said, it only takes faith as small as a mustard seed to move mountains. If what one desires is in alignment with the Divine, nothing will be impossible.

While on my Journey of Love, traveling the United States, the consummation phase happened. This was when the aha moment hit. When, with  crystal clarity, I became aware of my life’s purpose. My life’s purpose took seed in my heart. It happened at a bookstore in Colorado. I picked up Linda Howe’s book, ‘How to Read the Akashic Records. Accessing the Archive of the Soul and Its Journey’. This is a moment I will never forget as I suddenly became aware of my life’s purpose. It deepened my faith in God and my knowingness of the reason I am here.

Pregnancy. Ah, pregnancy. This phase has been about starting my work and doing intuitive and Akashic Record readings for myself and others. Watching myself grow in confidence and ability, watching my gifts blossom and watching myself expand with life and abundance. This process has truly been a miracle. It has been a gift from the Divine. The pregnancy phase has also been about purging. It has been about getting ready for re-birth and this new way of being through vomiting fears, toxic relationships, old ways of coping and past experiences that no longer serve me.

Now comes active labour. The truth is, I am not yet sure what this phase will bring but it’s sure part of the birthing process. We are in it and it’s only just begun. I have a feeling it’s going to be intense, as labour is. I am prepared. I am ready. I have faith. Breathe, breathe deeply every step of the way. Practice self-care. Rest. Move. Nourish with food and water. Welcome support from others. Connect with self. Connect with Nature. Align with Goddess. Align with Mother.

The dandelion is symbolic of Mother and of the lion, representing courage. If you find yourself in a moment of despair, remember it is temporary. Walk barefoot on the grass. Align with Mother. Align with Mother. Align with Mother. Blow on a dandelion and say a prayer. Know that Goddess is with you always, supporting and guiding you through this re-birthing process.

 

With Love,

Christ Consciousness

img_3448

Many faith traditions have exalted Jesus in various ways from viewing Him as a prophet to believing that He is the Son of God. Many people from various cultures across the globe feel a powerful connection with Jesus. Jesus embodied the Divine the way many of us strive to do daily. The way in which we experience Christ is shifting. What do I mean by this?

Up until now, many have viewed and experienced Christ through the patriarchal, male dominated lens. This has been the case to further the male dominated structure in which we live. The collective perception of Christ in this way has caused a divide between the Divine and the material plane, between the masculine and feminine, between reason and feeling. What needs to happen, and what is happening now, is that a balance is manifesting between these two energies. Both the masculine and the feminine has its place.
What’s happening now is that the feminine is rising and coming into balance with the masculine. As this process unfolds, the way we are aware of Jesus is shifting also. Jesus was a man who embodied both the masculine and the feminine in perfect symmetry. He embodied the Divine and the material, reason and feeling.
As we move into a more feminine way of being, we are moving toward a feeling-based reality; where, in order to reach the Divine, getting in touch with ourselves, with our bodies, and with the way our bodies connect with Gaia, with Mother Earth, would be immensely helpful. This might seem contrary to what one might think. Many have put much effort into concentrating energy upward and out in order to reach spiritual freedom, to reach spiritual awakening.
What is happening now is the realisation that we can reach spiritual awakening through concentrating energy inward and down, connecting with Mother Earth, a process through which we can encounter the Divine and bring Christ Consciousness to the earth in a holistic and balanced way. We can do this by recognising the sacredness of all living beings. We can do this by unconditionally loving each other, even those we perceive to cause us pain and suffering. Loving unconditionally means loving without conditions. We can do this by recognising the beauty and vastness of Mother Earth, that She provides for our needs every second of every day and that She needs to be protected, taken care of and cherished for the Mother that she is. We do this by feeling our way there! After all, we are all One. By recognising this sacredness, we recognise the Divine that is us.
Through this rooting, this grounding, this reality-based awareness, through translating Divine communication onto the material plane and giving words to it, articulating it, we can find spiritual freedom. Through this process we can have a deeper and more powerful connection with God.
With Love,
Chris

Emotional Release Affects Physical Health

img_3407

Recently, I wrote a blog post about nutrition issues I’ve had. To elaborate a little further, I decided to get support and guidance from  a healthcare provider to help me with a couple of these health concerns. During my first appointment, through a variety of testing, the healthcare provider told me that my body was unable to effectively absorb nutrition from food. I left the appointment wondering if the change in diet and recommended supplements would be enough to help. We set up a second appointment for three days later for retesting and to go over recommendations.

That night, I had a conversation with a dear friend that triggered emotional trauma I had been experiencing for lifetimes and most recently, throughout the past couple of years. I went to bed thinking about it and woke up in the middle of the night dreaming about it. I decided to finally face it!

I laid in bed, closed my eyes and put a blank whiteboard in front of my minds’ eye. I asked myself, ‘where do I feel these feelings of pain and loss?’ I felt them in my solar plexus, not my heart. This led me to ponder the idea that these feelings are fear-based as opposed to love-based. I went deeper and asked myself more questions like, ‘why am I struggling to release this?’ I looked at the situation playing out on the whiteboard, feelings and all, facing it and looking at it more, feeling it intensely, all the while asking more questions and waiting to truly feel and know the answers.

I did an Akashic Record reading for myself, explored the initiating circumstance that led to the most recent dynamic. I had a profound breakthrough. I had woken up at 2 am and did not go back to sleep. This process took a while but I was ready and it was time. I was able to release lifetimes of fear, pain, loss and suffering. The entire process of release had been going on for several months and that night, it reached its tipping point. I realised that due to these fears, I was not allowing myself to be nourished on an emotional level, and consequently, on a physical level.

A day or two later I went back for my second appointment. The healthcare provider re-tested me and lo and behold, the issue that was causing my body to not effectively absorb nutrition from food was no longer an issue. The provider said that she has never seen anything like this before. She retested one last time just to make sure, and sure enough, the issue was no longer an issue.

The emotions we hold on to, affect our physical bodies. Often times, seeing a healthcare provider is very important and it’s only part of the holistic solution. It’s important to work on the emotional stuff holding us back in conjunction with the physical part. Sometimes seeing a talk-therapist or energy healer is a good option and sometimes doing an Akashic Record reading might be the right choice, if it resonates. Any modality that gets to the core  emotional issue resulting in the physical condition could be a potential option, as long as the practitioner and modality both resonate with you. Often, if we simply try dealing with the physical manifestation of the issue, it’s dealing with the symptom only, rather than dealing with the cause and the symptom.

Through releasing the toxic emotional stuff I was holding on to, my physical body was able to heal and release the resulting physical manifestation of it.

If you would like to learn more about Akashic Record readings, I offer free 15 minute information sessions. The fee for a session (lasting approximately one hour with 30 minutes for processing) is $125. During this time of Venus retrograde until April 15th, I am offering sessions in exchange for any donation or trade/barter that feels comfortable to you. I am looking forward to hearing your trade/barter ideas 🙂 birthingnewdimensions@gmail.com

Kundalini Awakening

img_3460

Kundalini is primal energy located and stored at the base of the spine. When an individual is ready, Kundalini energy awakens and will coil from the base of the spine up and around the spinal column until it reaches the crown for the purpose of attaining spiritual enlightenment. Many spiritual traditions have practices to awaken Kundalini energy. For some, these practices are not necessary and when ready, the energy will take on a life of its own. Often, people go through a series of very challenging life circumstances during this time.
I have been intrigued by the idea of Kundalini energy for several years, going through phases of learning more and reading about others’ experiences. As I have been on my spiritual path, I have realised that I started going through the Kundalini awakening process seven years ago when I decided to face my deepest, darkest fears and to live a whole and fulfilling life of unconditional love. Most recently, my awareness around this process has come back to light as I have realised a shift and deeper unfolding.
If I had known what was to come seven years ago, I might have been a tad more frightened to jump of the cliff and into the abyss as a lot of these challenging life circumstances happened during this time. At this point, I am eternally grateful I did.
I have recently been connecting with the Archangels every day, several times a day. A few nights ago, the word Seraphim came to me. Prior to this, I did not know that Seraphim are Angels who fly around the throne of God, singing ‘holy, holy, holy’. They are also referred to as the fiery serpents or winged ones, describing fully awakened Kundalini.
Goddess, Gaia, the Archangels and Guardian Angels, Ascended Masters, my guides, totems and loved ones have been with me every step of the way, even when I did not acknowledge them or think they were. As I have grown in strength, I have realised they have been right there with me this entire time. They have been supporting me, guiding me and loving me unconditionally. At this point along my journey, I feel them and know they are present, beyond simply hoping they’re with me.
This is true for everyone. All you have to do is tap in, call on the Angels and ask for guidance. You can ask them to reveal themselves to you so you know the Angels specific to you. If you need support with this, please feel free to contact me as I have the ability to tell you who your Angels and guides are. However, you can do it on your own! What I tell you is likely something you already know 🙂
Have faith if you are in a place deciding to jump off the cliff and into the Abyss. It’s not always a cake-walk but it’s necessary and you are protected, taken care of and unconditionally loved. Trust and Surrender!
In Love,
Chris

Take Action ONLY when Divinely Inspired

img_3463

This seems like a pretty bold statement. For me, it has been the difference between miracles happening and slugging along. Take action ONLY when Divinely inspired!
I often feel a strong healthy desire to get my long list of things done for Birthing New Dimensions and in other areas of my life. It seems natural to feel this desire as it is how progress is made. I’ve noticed though, that when I need to complete a task or implement an idea, the moment I feel Divinely inspired to do it, it is effortless and I produce my best work. I feel productive. I feel alive. I feel motivated.
This could be the time difference of a couple of hours or a couple of days; who knows. All I know is that when inspiration comes from the Divine, it flows and it’s perfect.
Two examples of this happened today. I wanted to write a blog post, something I have been enjoying more and more. When I quit my job as a full-time grant writer, the last thing I wanted to do was write, so the fact that I feel inspired to write again is pretty cool. I was out and about, working on my computer and spending the day doing administrative work. I thought that since writing fits in with my activities for the day, there’s no better time to knock out the blog. Well, the ideas were not coming. I sat down and thought about this and that. I really wanted to get the blog done but it just was not the right time. So, I took a deep breath and came home. I stopped to walk barefoot on the grass, to enjoy the magic of my environment, to enjoy a cup of Honeybush Rooiboss tea (a treat from home), and to listen to the birds sing. All of a sudden, it came to me. I was Divinely inspired to blog about this very thing. So, here I am. If it does not feel like right timing, wait until you are inspired! Your work will be of Goddess and it will shine.
The second example has to do with food and nutrition. Recently, I have been struggling with my diet and some health issues. I have seen a couple of health practitioners and I just kept getting more and more overwhelmed. What I need to do is trust my body and my intuition. I need to create space to listen to my body and ask the right questions. Will this food nourish my body at this time? Is this something that will feed my body and my soul and provide me with the right nutrients? While I was at the grocery this afternoon, I decided to take the time to pick up food items I was considering and ask these questions. I waited until I felt an answer and then made a decision. Although this was an unusually long grocery trip, I was Divinely inspired to buy the foods I chose and I look forward to preparing and eating them. I plan to do this every time I go grocery shopping and every time I put food into my body-temple. My body already feels stronger and the overwhelmed feelings are gone. Take the time and you need to take care of yourself and trust the Divine. Trust Divine inspiration. You’re worth it. AHO!
In Love,
Chris

Transcending Negative Messaging 

img_3389

A theme that has come up lately is working through and overcoming negative messaging from childhood. Often, our well-meaning parents and others tell us that we can’t do something or shouldn’t do something because we will not make enough money, because we are not smart enough or good enough etc. The reason our loved ones tell us these things is fear based due to their own misalignment with Source and they project these fears and concerns onto us. It has nothing to do with us!

As children, we tend to internalise what our loved ones tell us as a means to cope with these fear based remarks. It’s a useful coping mechanism and it serves us well as children when we are dependant on our parents and other adults for survival. What happens when we grow into adulthood, when former means of coping no longer serves us?

By this time, pipes have been laid. We have been functioning under the old framework our whole lives and it’s what we have become accustomed to. Then, we begin to feel like something is wrong. We still hear these messages but something about it does not resonate. We become aware that there is a disconnect between what others have been telling us and that which we know to be true about ourselves. Awareness kicks in! Often, this awareness starts out as simply an uneasy feeling but not knowing why. The more we explore these feelings, we realise that the messages we have been hearing are not true. We  begin knowing our truth.

It’s often an unbelievable realisation and takes time to process. It’s an aha moment that often results in feelings of loss and betrayal. If this is true for you, it is important to allow yourself time to mourn, to feel the grief and pain and to come into the knowingness of who you really are. By allowing these emotions to surface, it’s easier to come to a place of acceptance and eventually appreciation.

The extent to which we feel the contrasting experience of who we really are (old negative messaging) is the degree to which we can have genuine appreciate of its opposite (the new knowing). All of these life experiences are a gift. It is how expansion happens.

In Love,

Chris
