We just finished wrapping up a virtual retreat entitled "Healing with Your Angels". It was a heart felt weekend filled with learning, experiencing, sharing and mostly receiving what our angels have to offer us in the form of support and healing. We worked with four specific Archangels; Uriel, Gabriel, Jophiel and Raphael. Each Archangel carries a distinct colored ray that brings us healing for very specific areas of the body called "energy centres" or also known as "chakras".
The fourth center we explored was all matters of the heart. Our heart centres encompass our arms, hands, mid back, lungs, and heart. Knowing what Archangel Raphael area of expertise was, we were all tasked to list our personal issues where Raphael could assist us. We then proceeded to ask the Archangel through an intentional prayer followed by an activation meditation. It's such a beautiful way to connect with our angels and always sends me goosebumps all over my body.
Every soul-sister had their own individual areas of their lives that they required assistance with. The secret key to receiving help from the Archangels (spirit guides, power animals, angels) is to ASK for help. Once the question has been asked, we then need to get out of the way and TRUST that the angels will assist in accordance to the divine will. I too asked for help, and I share with you the message I received from Archangel Raphael.
My request was relevant to what humanity is experiencing at this time. I asked for Archangel Raphael to assist the healing of the collective who are dealing with the fear around their lungs with our current virus. I received a profound message one that left me in tears. The messages goes like this:
"Dear child, the lungs are the tree of life. As above, so below. Even though you see the lungs as vertical in your bodies, if you flip them around to horizontal you will recognize the tree of life with the branches on top and the roots on the bottom. The macro and the micro.
You cover yourselves under masks. But the very thing you need is breath! You have covered the earth (mother earth, gaia, pachamama) with your pollution and have cut down her lungs (trees). This action is destroying your lungs and the earths. Your experience is Gaia's experience. You get caught up so much in what is happening to YOU, to your FAMILY, to your COMMUNITY, but most never take it an further into the macrocosm. What is the bigger picture? How is this mirroring your collective experience? What you have done to yourselves, humanity, you have done to our great mother, the earth. You as a collective have put a mask on her."
Gaia now has this pollution over her face (the mask). Mother earth can not breathe. We have cut down her lungs (the trees). We have done this to ourselves. So as the macro, so is the micro. We need to look further than ourselves, always...right? Life always mirrors what we do to the earth, we do to ourselves.
In this retreat we were working on healing our hearts. It starts here. It's an inner journey, and inside work. When we heal this aspect of ourselves, we make better choices that have an huge impact on our earth. And just as the earth is our macrocosm, the earth is the microcosm to the whole universe. So our inner journeys, play a role in the infinite existence of all creation.
So be it now.
What exactly happened to 2019? Where did it all go? Honestly, I don't know where it all went. Do you? 2019 was the year of endings, the year of many deaths, and I'm okay with that. Because after a death, if we follow the cycle of life, it means that something will be born. Birth follows death, it's one of our natural laws.
We closed down Calder House in 2019, and although I'm still cleaning up some business loose ends on that, it is done. We've taken back the house as our personal space and let me tell you there is evidence. We no longer are the cleaning fanatics we once were. You can definitely catch a cat fuzz ball here and there.
Purnima and I took a beautiful group to India in January of 2019. Social media constantly reminds me where I was last year. To be honest it seems like a decade ago. I have some beautiful memories to fill my heart.
We lost my mom in May of 2019. If I was to be honest with you, the divine blessed us with her passing. My mom suffered from dementia for several years, and we had truly lost her some time ago. Her soul rests now with my dad. She comes to visit me once in a blue moon in spirit.
She's just checking in.
We lost Grant's mom in June of 2019. Yes barely a month apart. I think those two were in cahoots with each other. LOL! Alice lived a very long life. She transitioned at the age of 93. Incredible long life. She was ready to go, she was tired of fighting the fight. And we gently released her so she could rest eternally. Interestingly, Alice passed exactly on the same day as her husband (Norm), but he passed 24 years prior.
In August of 2019 we lost our best furry friend, Luna (Alaskan Malamute). There isn't a day that we don't think of her. We surely miss our daily walks. She played an big part in keeping us in shape.
We ended the year with some holiday plans that were derailed at the last minute. What a crazy year!
But what I haven't shared is the amazing things that came about in the midsts of the chaos.
We birthed a ceremonial women's sweat lodge on our property and held a half a dozen sweats. Oh if the walls of the lodge could speak.
We made some amazing, deep community relationships. Creating a unique and special bond that I will forever be grateful for.
I walked along the healing journeys of many who came to see me for some assistance. I always feel so honored when they choose me to help.
The year ended with the gift of time to sit, reflect, rest, and take an inward journey. I felt like I was in the chrysalis stage of a pupa.
Stay tuned for what is to come!
So excited to birth some new projects.
