Long Post, about NOW. Super long email with much helpful teaching for now... make that cuppa and enjoy!!
YOU - How Are You? I'll say this much; if you're confused, no energy, sad, angry, frustrated, apathetic, relaxed, happy, in love, that's perfectly human. For this is NOT normal, what is happening now: There is nothing normal about this and you know it. We are not living in accordance to natural law; we are not together. We are apart. And no amount of neurolinguistic programming can erase the knowing living intelligence in your gut, in your heart and in your bones.
As much as the fight / flight / freeze stunned part of our psyche will want to pretzel itself into a safe little bubble. Nature is alive and the Nature of Nature is Movement, Flow, Expansion, Celebration, Dance, Song, Community... Our ancestors danced barefoot in ecstasy around the fire on the living soil, in connection, in celebration of their aliveness and in gratitude to Life Itself. In receivership of this life that we get given. If you have a brain, a heartbeat, a pulse, and a living Spirit you will know in your bones that living like a robot, or zombie, can never be fulfilling. There IS NO feeding the hungry ghost of addiction that arises from disconnection from who we are. No amount of attempting to control our Nature works. Nature, our Nature, is alive. And it needs to flow and move, like the rivers in our veins, like the ebb and flow of our breath... I have no desire to snack, ever. I have no desire not be in feeling connection with myself. I absolutely LOVE being in my body and feeling my own soul alive. And being in full present communion with the elements of surrounding nature.
Every astrologer worth their salt in various traditions have said the same thing about now; CRAAAAYYYYYYYZZEEEEEE, unprecedented, like we’ve never seen before, the dark underbelly of everything being brought to the surface; personal, political, social, ecological and economic systems coming up for re-consideration for all of humanity... Sounds about right? The good news, this too will pass, like everything. In about 2 years, or so, say the astrologers?? Seatbelts on. Or rather, breathing, meditation and connection, so you can shed safely. Learn how your own biology, your body, already holds the secrets of this universe, and how to have them inform your living..
The good news? How it turns out, for each of us, in what some call a monumental story of human awakening, should you choose that perspective, IS your choice, we each ARE that powerful on one level; it's quite possibly up to each one of us, now. Life is GIVEN, and when our soul is done, we leave. This is the REAL mystical, spiritual teachings 101. We ARE the ones we've been waiting for. I know, it sounds so cool as a quote on a photo of an indigenous american, but now that we're in the mess ourselves?!?! Yup. This year, so far, world wide, approximately the same amount as most other years have left the planet, in total. It is very sad when our loved ones, regardless of age, leave this plane of existence. And, as we know, it is one thing that's guaranteed for every one of us. The cycles of life, the cycles of Nature; birth, life, death, rebirth... And so the seasons of our lives go. I didn't design the rules of life, but i bow down to them, for i recognize that nature takes her cause for a reason. She has a way of maintaining balance and homeostasis, in ecosystems, and in our human bodies. Its an in-built function. Not man-made. Now that's cool. And oh so smart. So smart, it knows how to create human beings. Think about that. Human beings GROW from a single cell in the womb, into an actual body, into an actual person.. i mean..
I'm now coming to an age where i realize that i don't have forever in this body. In this beautiful faithful amazing intelligent biology that somehow allows 'me' to feel and participate in this what we call LIFE; WWOOHHAAAA!! I absolutely RELISH walking down the street and breathing in the smell of plants, and feeling the air on my skin, feeling the sun on my skin, in wonderment of the light, the sky, the clouds, the trees, the birds, the sea... I go to bed and many nights i have a little lying down dance and wriggle and laugh as my body relaxes and i feel the sheets against my skin, the weight of my body supported by the mattress, the soft warmth.. its really really awesome!! And if you have other humans that you get to SHARE that with, wow, you are immensely blessed and lucky.
Take a breath fellow human. It is safe to breathe. In my world, according to the principles of Nature, it is always safe to breathe. Because no creator of such beauty as life would create such a cruel idea that breathing is not safe. Deep deep breaths. Feels good, yeah? Good for your immune system too, especially Wim Hof breathing. Many swear by it.
All your yoga and meditation and healing work; it was for these times. You heard that saying, right? Maybe liked the meme, or reposted it: we were made for these times!!! Well, this is THE TIME to stand fully, feet planted deeply, in the flame of your truth. Drop anchor, know who you are; eternal creator energy. Your choice. YOUR choice. The first tenet of Yoga is Self-Responsibility. That means YOU and YOU alone are responsible for your life, your actions, your choices. Not to be confused with control. Important difference. Owning that, there is no need for anyone else to be or do anything different than what they are. When you stand in that power. Which, given the current circumstances may feel like quite a task. It is, however doable, and not only that, it is what is always here, the living intelligence of Nature, Life, your Body, that we all Get Given in each moment. There is no need to control this power. Or to fear it. It knows, it fuels our immune system, and guides us in every moment. Our health depends on this living intelligence, that exchanges with other living bodies intelligence, for its ability to adapt and to produce all that immune boosting LOVE. Did you know that according to the Blue Guide, the longest living societies in the world have one thing in common; although healthy unprocessed food from pure soil is one part of it, the main factor is community and close family interactions..
Here is how it works according to Subtle Body Anatomy; you choose where your energy goes. You align your energy with the already present laws of nature that CREATE your body and your physiology.. and access ALL of the living intelligent power that You are, that EACH human are, and can choose.. It is a powerful process of pulling energy out of the body-mind systems and unconscious conditioning that created the patterns, physiology and psychology that are not working, and redirecting, and rewiring that energy into the present moment workings of the system of natural movement of energy that your biology was born with. If you are constantly giving your energy away to belief systems, through thought and feeling, that are not nourishing you, well, that's maybe not such a smart move.. So how do you know? Well, take some time to really become aware what stories your energy are keeping in place, in your reality. For you cannot choose unless you are aware of your choices, right?
Knowing what i know, (and having the ability to 'see' where energy is coming from, in speech, ie from within a person or from a dead, intentionally neuro-linguistically programmed script) i have not had one moments fear about infectious disease for myself, or my parents. Not ONE moment. I'm not saying that to be cool. I know how cool i am myself already. Like Way!! I'm saying it because it is true. And obviously, i'm taking my vitamin D and vitamin C, as i have been for years. Zinc is also supposed to be a good one, but my body doesn't like it as a supplement, so much. I think i get enough from all the irish organic or grass fed beef and raw dairy that i eat most days now, that helped me recover from the whole internal organ failure thing.. It works pretty well. I do remember having the flu for two days in 2014... but that was before i started back on an omnivore diet properly. It really great to finally have a functioning digestion and brain!
It is NOW that your capacity to connect with your Self, with your inner embodied wisdom that grounds and centers you; your capacity to use the body-mind- breath tools, your capacity to choose where you place your energy and attention, and thusly entirely create your experience of reality, your capacity to switch off the adrenal response and go deep within, so you can switch off and get out of the mental emotional loop of fear, or overstimulation, of disconnection and apathy.... all this inner knowing now comes in so very handy.
It is NOW that finding the space, choosing to create the space for creating the space within, for your mind and body, to come out of the fight / flight / freeze response that has us attacking other human beings out of fear, confusion, (repressed) anger and sadness. It is time NOW to say ok, i have this life here, these few more years, in this body, as myself; what am i going to to do with them.
If you tell me you'll be satisfied to be on zoom and netflix for the rest of your life, then please do come back and tell my how your health is in a years time. For i'm seeing many colleagues failing to thrive already. For the simple, kindergarden science reason; It's not Natural!! Going against Nature and how she needs to move, in and through us, is never a good idea. For her intelligence is vastly more intelligent than what the minds of scared and powerhungry little humans can conjure up. Vastly. And i say her because Shakti in yoga in Matter, and Shiva is Consciousness. And so here we dance, in this cycle, this season, as brothers and sisters. And there are always those that try to bully everyone else in the sandbox. And rule. Don't be a bully. It's not nice. And don't take that shit from anyone else!
MORE reflections and teachings pertaining to NOW.
In Subtle Body Anatomy we meet here, now on the planet, several aspects of the Root Chakra; physical survival (fight/ flight/ freeze response) our connection (or lack thereof) to the earth and nature, food, shelter, clan, and the lesson to learn is that All is One. Which also means that One is All. In the teachings we are each responsible for our own connection to Self, to find wholeness within our inner universe. Just like in Nature, each flower needs to be its own unique expression, contributing with its exact alignment to its inner nature to a richer, more diverse, and therefore resilient whole.
When survival becomes a worry for any animal, including the human animal body, a physiological event that effectively disconnects us from feeling our body takes place; the body produces lots of chemicals to prepare us for fight or flight or freeze. We are now in a state of stress. If the survival concern continues over a long period of time, our entire system begins to burn out and break down.
So whenever I find myself in any kind of pickle, I like to, if I can, take the time to really examine what is going on on the inside; I always use a very powerful teaching from one of my mentors to arrive at the crux of everything, to allow for and honor the process I’m going through with compassion for myself and any emotions that need to move through my experience and body. This allows me to meet and transmute old consciousness, beliefs, corresponding emotions and behaviours, and become grounded and centered in my own body, to know myself, to be at peace with who I am and to honor that. This, in turn, allows me the perspective that 1: everyone else is probably also going through stuff 2: I don’t need anyone else to change how they behave or think or believe or act, in order for me to choose what i choose and 3: my main responsibility is to stay connected to and honor the place in myself that allows my body and mind to work optimally, keeping myself healthy, able to breathe fully and freely and 4: I don’t need to change what I believe or choose in order for anybody else to be happy, in fact this will most decidedly make me sick.
Here is an amazing teaching; the less time i spend wanting others to change, the better i'll feel. In terms of spirit there IS literally nothing outside of you that can affect you in any way, unless you give it your attention, in other words, give your ENERGY to it, or them. Our body and mind responds to the thoughts we have. If you think a thought many times, YOU literally begin to make it true, and your body responds by functioning how it needs to survive the picture of reality that YOU YOURSELF IS GIVING IT / YOURSELF. When we’re in highly strung survival mode, which for a whole number reasons according to Natural Law, most humans are now, and even if not, will become by way of limbic resonance, we loose connection with our ability to feel ourself, and consequently, we loose connection with our CAPACITY to create or affect a different EXPERIENCE of ourself and our reality.
You know..... you, me, everyone else walking around; we are not our beliefs; we do not need to all have the same beliefs about things. When we respect and honor our SELF, and know who we are and where we stand, there is no need to fear, or attack anybody else or their beliefs. I’m seeing adult humans behave like hurt little children in kindergarden, throwing rocks, shame, belittlement, ridicule and even hate at each other… this is not the way forward sisters and brothers. If we want a peaceful world we need to find a way to reconcile the war and hatred and fear that lives in ourself, first. As within, so without..
It's not always fun or fluffy or jolly, it's not an instant click the button gratification.. but it is possible to meet ourselves on a deeper level of intimacy with ourselves, and others; growing up means taking responsibility for our own wounds, so we can find reconciliation, integrity, honesty, clarity, respect and honor for ourself. Only from here can we truly respect and honor each persons choices and beliefs. So we can be in our bodies without fear and meet each other as humans, and treat each other with dignity. And not live in fear.
When we respect and honor ourself, when we are in our own truth, at peace in ourself in our own body, we don’t need to push others down so that they see our point of view. We can simply stand and walk and choose THAT which is true for us. Own it. Truth never belittles or shames or projects or asks any other part of nature, as it is occurring in other human beings, to be different that how it is. And it doesn’t need to change itself for others, as it is just truth. We need to be able to know who we are so we can honor and respect the life that is alive and lives throughout and within each of us.
If we want to create a world based on love, respect, and honoring of Nature, as it is Nature that feeds, waters, shelters and clothes us; instead of one based on fear, control, violence, domination, shaming and a few vastly profiteering on human and natural resources and energy by taking more than is needed and not sharing the fruits equally, we need to look at a few things, within ourselves.
It is obscene that so few have so much and so many have so little. We shouldn’t be content in our artificial comfort that requires half of the world population to live in poverty, that requires the pollution of the earth. It’s time to humble up, as Caroline Myss says, stop blaming each other for the fact that things are not right in our interior, and get real. It's time to be more brave and more kind to ourselves than ever and feel who we really are, and heal, so we can get off the loop of fear and begin to truly connect to our humanity and the innate living healing intelligence of our Nature, our Body. Because of habit, comfort, addictions, distractions, numbing down, fast pace of modern life.... many are unconsciously giving lifecreating energy to systems of trade that perpetrate slavery, poverty, and the abuse of human and planetary resources. It's time to look in the mirror, love on yourself like never before, and see the power you have to be a noble human being, openly living in the exchange and empowerment of the luminescence of our human spirit.
The ancient wisdom held by the yogi shamans, transmitted from the Star People and Mother Earth and Father Sun, that creates this human experience in physical form and functionality and living creation, is what i work with. It is a simple aligning of mind-body with the Principles of Nature, that allows energy to move unobstructedly, without interference through our Soul in physical form, our Body. When energy isn't moving through all the centers (chakras; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual energies) in all the sheaths (koshas) in their natural, health sustaining, balancing, vitalizing directions (vayus) through the right channels (nadis & meridians) and to all the organs, then we eventually get sick in one of the corresponding areas. Because life creating energy is no longer reaching that part of the system, and so it then cannot rejuvenate itself. Needless to say, anything that causes stress or disruption to any of the systems create illness; toxins or anything that tampers with the body's natural functioning and dna is simply not helpful. Because WE ARE NOT BORN BROKEN. HOW we are created is a perfect naturally designed system. Just let that be so.
Did you know that the best way to regenerate a forest is to leave it alone, for many years? That makes so much sense!! For the simple reason that Nature ALREADY knows how to do things perfectly. It is the tampering with Nature, and our connection to it and to our own bodies, that are MAKING us sick. So many people are sick. So many kids are sick. Our society was sick BEFORE now. As the forests teach us, it is IMPOSSIBLE to solve a problem with thinking and methods that created the problem in the first place. It can only create more disconnection. That is simple logic. More technology, more chemicals, more limited science, more mono cropping, taking and fixing and doing and tampering with bodies and nature, trying to fix it all from a level of mind and manmade stuff, is not going to change anything. For the simple reason that there was nothing wrong with it in the first place, before 'civilization'. None of the 'modern' illnesses existed, before Man began imposing his ideas of control, efficiency and profit. It really is kinder garden science to see that if a method is not working, it would be smart to stop using that method.
Believe it or not, the same intelligence that keeps the planets in orbit and the earth at the exact distance from the sun so that LIFE can exist here, probably knew how to create a body that functions in relationship to an unpoisoned earth, and organic, natural foods, in a culture and society that honors, acknowledges and celebrates this connection. The indigenous people of Australia lived in harmony with nature, using telepathic or ESP capacities that baffle modern people, and they managed to live on one continent, for anywhere between 30 to 80 000 years, without f'cking it up. They had perfect perfect healthy bodies and teeth (see Weston Prices book) before 'civilized' men arrived and decimated an entire people with their, one must conclude, fallible logic of domination. It is impossible not to be acutely aware of that this mindset of colonization of land and people, and global trade has not done any favours to human health, body or mind, or to the ecosystems and health of our planet.
With that my friends i leave you for now - reply to connect in whatever way you feel.
I'm working with people one to one, and also families / teams / companies to redress and align balance and working harmony throughout organized systems. These sessions are proving priceless to resolve entangled dynamics that have arisen now and that won't resolve. These sessions allows all parties to see the underlying truth and to allow nature, breath, and natural intelligence to move again throughout the system.
Use contact form for all inquiries and bookings. I very much look forward to being with you in the remembrance and emergence of your human capacity, and the alignment of the workings of your physiology with those. I have full faith in the intelligence that brought you into being to making itself known to you in ways you've never even imagined before.
TOGETHER WE RISE
THANK YOU FOR READING and FOR BEING and for HONORING your Nature.
I wish you great remembrance of your essence, your Spirit, in going forward
that we may indeed prevail in our own true image, essence and actualization
for all of Humanity and Nature at this time
ALL MY LOVE, Veronica
