How do I get through the holidays?

December 20, 2016

As the Holidays are approaching I thought I would respond to a question from a reader who lost her beloved husband and is having a tough time during the holidays. The question was sent to me last week and it said: “How do I get through these Holidays intact? This is the first Christmas without my husband, how to I not fall to pieces?   Dear anonymous, Losing someone you loved is not easy. It is especially not easy during the holidays when the collective world around us appears to be celebrating. You see, when everyone else is buying Christmas gifts and is out and about in the world having a good time, they are all energetically connected to us. Strangers. Friends. Family. All of them. Their excitement is sent to our own nervous system. Their energy is thrown specifically to the heart. You feel this jolt of energy which in turn affects your body’s grounding levels and it puts you in the wrong kind of excited state. This excited state when you are in grief mode shakes your nervous system. Everything in your body then goes against its calm state. Not only are you dealing with the everyday feeling of pain of a broken heart but now you are being influenced by the world’s ungrounded holiday experience. As you know I look at our most difficult questions and explore answers that are not your typical or basic human responses. I do that because the everyday advice we get is not enough anymore. There is knowledge out there that can truly help us in our evolution. Today I am going to ask you to do something you are not expecting in this context. Take your shoes off every time the electric current around you is getting you to this excited state that brings heart palpitations, stress, additional grief and ultimately delays your healing journey. Why take your shoes off? Because the ground is capable of transferring electrons to or receiving electrons from a charged object in order to neutralize that object. We have to neutralize this charge that is un-grounding us. This excess charge takes you to the edge of your grief and pain and makes you feel like you will fall to pieces. You asked how to get through the holidays intact and my answer to that is take your shoes off and get closer to Earth. First and foremost you will have to find a way to literally put your feet on the ground. And I don’t mean the floor on your house. I mean soil. Grass. Sand. All of it. This helps you not only sleep better, have less physical pain of any kind but also reduce stress and alter your mood. If the stars could speak they would tell us that the Earth under our feet is here to help mend our hearts. (click to tweet) We are not meant to block it with our shoes, rubber soles and shielding it from our bodies. Especially during the holidays and while our heart is broken. If you did just one thing during this tough season take off your shoes and feel the earth for at least 30 minutes every day. Do it while you are eating, reading, texting even. I know it’s not the best thing but the priority here is to get our feet on the ground. That’s it. Out there in space there is no pain, no nervous system but here there is a lot of it. A lot of feelings. This is why the stars are out there, and the earth is right here. The earth is here to help us with our feelings. I know right? Of course its also here for our physical existence but we have underestimated the emotional work that earth does for us. My dear anonymous I know that taking your shoes off is not going to answer all the questions but it will make it easier for you to breathe, survive the energetic field that is strong right now and get you to the New Year. And that is all we need right this moment. Have an earthly holiday and I hope you are already taking your shoes off.

Divorce is Not Real in the Quantum World

December 13, 2016

This past week I received a question that I had to ponder on for a while. The question went like this “What if we lose someone but they are still here. As in divorce? What if you still hold the love but they do not? Will that love ever live again? Dear anonymous, I am so sorry about your loss of someone who is still physically alive but not physically together with you. I used to say that divorce is like being in love with a ghost, he/she is alive for everyone else but not for you. Today I want to introduce you to another truth. One that I believe is more real for better or for worse than the one that we are humanly aware of. The answer to ‘will that love ever live again’ is always a yes. Whether it is here in this time and space experience or in another one, the answer is always yes.  And I love the way you asked this question. What if you still hold the love but they do not. Holding love for someone is an experience that is far more complex than we can see. One of the reasons why separations are so impossible and difficult it is because of something called quantum entanglement. The word entanglement in quantum physics refers to particles that can be intimately linked to each other even if separated by space, time and everything you can imagine. Whatever happens to one particle in one location will influence the other. When there is unity and then a separation the particles can never be the same as they once were. They have been forever entangled. They have been forever defined by each other. Even in part. You are still interacting with the person you are separated from via something called spooky action at a distance. Einstein said that particles such as electrons can also become ‘entangled’ no matter how far apart they are! This is why it is so hard to truly ever separate with someone we loved or still love. For you, this connection with him is operating outside of time and space. It is illogical and impractical through our human eyes. But if we look at it from a quantum view we would see this connection that does not break no matter what the physical world looks like. And if you pay attention you will actually start to notice a lot of correlations between the two of you. The entanglement of love will create an invisible interaction even if you or him wish for it to be different. There is nothing anyone can do about it. You are connected and intimately linked to each other even if separated by many lifetimes. Our interactions with one another are internal, energetic and in a subatomic level through a unifying field. (click to tweet) How so? Here is a breakdown of how this happens. The whole universe is made up of one energy source. This energy is a part of everything. Your thoughts, your particles were joined and when they separated they were connected beyond a physical form.   Your nervous system was beating in alignment with his when you were together and still does now. If only we could find a way to see this invisible entanglement we would notice that distance, separation and disconnection does not change the fact that you are connected. Now anonymous, I know that this does not help with the physical feeling of loving someone who is not with you every day. And it doesn’t make the human separation any easier to deal with just because you now know that you are forever entangled with him. But what it does do is give an awareness to the fact that there is never any real separation. There is never a true goodbye. If we can see beyond this physical form or even this one life, then we will see that it has always been ‘until we meet again.’  For now and for this moment know that your love for each other still exists beyond disagreements, beyond human decisions it lives on and on. And if somehow we were able to be happy with knowing this then we would also find the strength and courage to fall in love again with someone else creating a new entanglement across the universe. After all we are here to love more than once or twice. With unlimited entanglement to you.

Have We Met Before?

December 6, 2016

One of the questions I received this last week from a reader was... “Dear Stars, will I see the people I lost again?” Dear Anonymous, I feel your deep longing for the people you lost. I know you need some rest or at least reassurance that somehow, somewhere there is this possibility of being with them again. I am choosing the word being, instead of seeing, or meeting them again because it’s the being with them that you miss. The feelings you had when you sat by their side, when you kissed them or danced with them. This longing is heavy and so overbearing that it stops you from living life again. But today, I want you to imagine that you will experience being with the people you lost once again. How do I know this? Here is how. Consciousness is the last frontier and first frontier. It is quite possible that we might not have all the answers to the questions, because we are meant to experience the truth and not be told the truth. Why do we need to wait for a scientist, or a priest or a historian to give us the answers? The journey to the truth might not be a collective journey at first but an individual one. When many arrive to the truth, the rest will follow. Imagine this for me. There are these particles called electrons and protons, which only occur when someone observes them. Which means that if we don’t see them, they are not there. This leads us into one direction, that this physical world you see around you, the chairs, the floor, the house you are living in, the trees and everything you see may be created from consciousness. The seeing of them gives birth to them. Who is seeing? Your consciousness. What is consciousness? It is that knowing behind your eyes. So, if that knowing behind your eyes has created all of this and it does not require this physical engine that pumps blood every day, then it’s an independent experience outside of us. And it can find its way to another living body, universe and experience when this body is no longer able. There is also a lot of human truth around the fact that we can’t prove that consciousness survives. There is actually a lot of strong evidence to prove that it doesn’t. We have not evolved enough to have the evidence for this yet. So, this cycle of finding the proof begins and there is no end in sight. And there won’t be for a really long time. Maybe never. But here’s what I want you to focus on. We are not meant to be told from a governing body whether our consciousness survives. We are meant to find the truth through experience. Through the familiar feeling of having been here before. Of having this feeling of knowing someone who you just met for the first time. Where do you think this feeling comes from? And why don’t we trust it? Why don’t we trust our own journey and wait to be told how to feel through someone else’s? The next time you meet someone for the first time and you have that familiar feeling, grab their hand and hold their gaze for a little longer. Ask them, have we met before? You are going to be surprised with the answers. And after a while you won’t be surprised anymore. Even though you don’t remember them... the feeling of being together is never forgotten. (Click to Tweet!) If only millions of people did just that. Wow. When you lose someone it hurts so much because you have lost them before in many lifetimes prior to this one. And the good news is that it’s very likely that you will be with them again, love them and lose them again. The timeless gift of our consciousness is to be with the people we love many times, in many embraces around many suns and in many lifetimes. Loss is part of love, and love is part of loss. Consciousness brings these together so it feels like it was our first time and our last time all at once. Consciousness is the feeling of knowing everything and knowing nothing. The seeing of the universe and the blindness of the whole.  Dear Anonymous, you have asked this question in many lifetimes before, and you will ask it again until the knowing inside of you becomes so strong that you won’t have to ask anymore. You will just know. That is when science, physics and even spirituality won’t have to work so hard to prove it. The quiet knowing will have done its job.

The Sky Is Alive

November 28, 2016

I wasn’t always so curious about the stars. As a matter of fact, I only cared about them when they were in a science fiction movie. But everything changed when in 2006 my very young husband passed away. I was left heartbroken. The fact that he was here one moment and gone the next was an impossibility in my mind. My mind could not accept this as a reality I had to live in. Since then, I looked at the sky asking questions and trying to get as many answers as possible. It was as if a portal opened wide and pulled me in. I wanted to know why am I still here? What is my purpose? Where will I go when I die? What are these bright objects up in the sky? What is synchronicity? Dark Matter. Energy. Gravity. Time Travel. Parallel Universes. The list kept getting longer and longer. The further in I went the more questions I had. As you can imagine I went on a journey unlike any other. And, as of today, I am taking you all with me. In the process of looking for him, I stumbled upon so many truths and I honestly want to scream them from the rooftops. For example, I don’t understand why most of us don’t know that we are made of stardust. You see long, long ago...stars started exploding and dying. Dying while sending out the most beautiful colorful light. If you could see them you would know that the sky above us is simply...alive. Can you imagine that your whole sky is full of stars that are being born and are dying so they can give birth to you and me?  When I learned this, I started looking at the sky in a whole other way. In these explosions, elements were created and our stardust atoms in our bodies were formed. Boom. Just like that. Stars are the reason we are here. We can literally trace the atoms in our bodies all the way to the stars. And, yes, we are connected to all the atoms in the universe. Simply put we are made of stardust. And stardust is made of us. Why isn’t this the first thing we learn at school?  Why don’t we have this as a reminder on our phone screens? Imagine starting your day knowing that you are a part of the stars above you. And this is not an exaggeration. The mass in our body is 93% stardust. How are we not told this when we start to understand language? I don’t know about you but my life got better when I found out some of these facts. They gave my life purpose and meaning. When I look at the stars at night I see myself there. And everyone I ever loved. And have I found him there? Even better I found him everywhere.  For this week I am going to ask you to walk outside for 5 minutes every night just before you go and tuck yourself in. Look up and feel the deep connection you have with those sparklers up there. Feel it and bring it inside your house with you. Take the stars to bed. And sleep among them. After all, you are one of them. (Click to Tweet!)
