2013 was the year of Spirituality for me. 2014 is the year of connection, friendship and community.
This is how my last year flowed. Days before the new year in 2012, I mentioned to my mom that I felt called to go on a spiritual retreat. I was craving India, Bali, any place that had a strong spiritual foundation and could provide a unique experience for expansion. January 11-12 of 2013, I was first introduced to Swamiji also known as Paramahansa Nithyananda. Kailen, my boyfriend at the time, and I signed up for a 2-day video 2-way conference to learn more about the chakra bodies from a well known Indian Guru. At first, I was a little arrogant thinking I didn’t need this 2-day discourse as I myself teach the chakras. For those who are unfamiliar with the 7 energy centers known as chakras, scroll to the bottom and I will provide a brief description (*).
Swamiji educated us that as our world continued to shift energetically, as we all are being asked to raise our energetic vibration and move from the 3rd dimension to the 4th and 5th dimensions; our bodies and minds would have to transform as well. This also meant that the chakras were going to be shifting and he was here to provide an updated understanding. The weekend proved to be profound in our personal outlook as well as life in general. At the end of the 2-day workshop, we were then granted a reading from Kalavarava. For those of you who follow my blogs, you will see in previous writing from July my Kalavarava experiences.
Kalavarava is the lord of time in Hindi culture. He can literally ready your akashic files (the files of your soul) and tell you where you have been, who you are, where you will be, ect. He is the lord of time, so there is no time. He can divulge anything as present because in quantum energy, we are now which was yesterday and tomorrow. Confused, but still excited? I hope!
With my incessant need to do something big and impactful while helping others, I asked “what is my life purpose?” Answer form Kalavarava: a life of pleasure. My life purpose is a life of pleasure.
To most, this makes total sense because I am the definition of pleasure! For me, it was a release of self judgment and expectation. In a way, I was somewhat freed by my reading.
In July of 2013 Kailen and I then set off for our 21 day stay at Swamiji’s ashram in Bangalore, India for our own personal Inner Awakening. Followed by a visit to the Maldives and Bali!
It was in his ashram that I was given another reading from Kalavarava- this time he blessed me with healing hands. He told me he would always be working through me and that I will heal anyone I touch. He even requested that I test him. Clearly Kalavarava knows me well. And that was the true beginning of my transformational hands on healing work!
On December 21st, the night of the winter solstice, I then partook in my first Ayahuasca journey. For those unfamiliar with grandmother Ayahuasca, I will write a separate blog on her magic! This too was a short lived journey, yet a very powerful message came through. I was met by my alien self who told me to stop searching for this great human purpose with the expectation to do something big and glamorous. I was reminded that I was brought here for the human experience and my purpose is simply to enjoy. We bantered and played as she was demonstrating that in this lifetime, I can have whatever I want. To just have it. To receive.
2014. I am opening up to receiving great gifts of love, community, celebration, adventure, financial support to fulfill my desires of travel, healthy food, connection, giving back, writing, sailing, friendship, togetherness and begin to find the cultural-tropical-beach community that will be our next home. 2015- we will start a family of our own!
(*) Chakras- There are said to be 7 main energy centers starting at our toes and moving pour crown that hold high levels of special energy. Outside of our physical body are another 6 etheric energy layers that too play a role in our everyday thoughts, energy, feelings, state of being. Each chakra has corresponding sounds, colors, smells, foods, emotions, roles that they play in our life! The 5 senses are used to help stimulate or channel the energy of each chakra. The ultimate goal is to always be in balance, internal harmony with each energy center.
