Heal Yourself , Heal the World, November 2016
Are you surprised by the election results and suffering from confusion, stress, anxiety, anger or fear? Keep reading, there is HOPE in this message.
Upset, upheaval and division are a common theme running through social networks, personal conversations and the news post the United States Election results. Relationships are threatened and even ending over the unexpected Trump win. The nation is witnessing unprecedented protests on both sides. As people rant, rave and blame each other, the hate crimes accumulate with the news media fanning the flames of dissent. One would think armageddon is approaching, and indeed some historians equate this period of history to Hitler or Mussolini’s rise to power. ALL this is deeply unsettling, unnerving and emotionally disruptive as the country figures out what will happen next in a melting pot of chaos.
This last election, after Bernie lost, I found myself oddly apathetic about the outcome, even casually forecasting a Trump victory as the surest way to change a broken and sick culture and political system that birthed two such unqualified and corrupt candidates. I initially said it as a joke, yet I’ve learned a well known secret in the spiritual world. Chaos always precedes change. I’m here to reassure you that not only is what is happening around us normal – it should be expected as the world shifts.
I had originally begun writing this blog last week intending to write about the popular Gandhi quote “Be the change ...” Well, after the election results shocked the world, the chosen topic became even more timely and potent. We’ll get to that in a bit. First lets go over some basics.
My speciality in my energy healing practice IS transformation and change. What I’ve learned through 11 years of extensive study and training in advanced forms of holistic healing, is that everything is energy, connected through the consciousness of it. And getting to the root is the key to deep and lasting transformation.
Consciousness is the building blocks of the physics behind energy. Everything we believe, experienced and know to be true creates our consciousness. Expanding our consciousness with meditation, yoga, breathwork, energy healing and other practices creates awareness of a realty greater than the ‘us’ that we’ve become accustomed to by habit. Until, we literally wake up. As we wake up, we start to recognize that we are this expansive nature, this Divine expression of the greater whole. And AS Nature, everything seeks balance.
Our body aches and pains, mental and psychological stress or breakdown, illness, accidents, sickness, conflict and drama are all the symptoms of a greater root of decay. These symptoms are nature’s (or the Divine’s) way to get our attention to what is OUT of balance or in disharmony. Every experience, is the vibration of dissonance, pointing out to you what is in dis-ease. Our job is to simply stop, and listen. But where n this culture of busyness and daily distraction, do we take the time to know and understand this? We are even programmed to avoid, deny or not see our pain. THIS is our shadow. And our shadow side stands in the way of a calm, open heart. Revealing, facing and embracing our shadow is the key to transformation. Each and every experience points the way to change...if we choose to see it and participate in the process. And, it IS a process.
“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” ~ Cynthia Occelli
As we take the time, make the effort and do the work to awaken, we open to new realities. You may recognize some of the symptoms or the benefits of awakening:
- Learning to flow rather than forcing events to happen.
- Feeling connected to nature and all sentient life.
- Increased ability to be more in the present moment.
- Becoming allergic to drama.and conflict without a healthy resolution.
- A loss of a need to worry, judge, analyze or interpret others action.
- Expectations fall away as we learn the power of setting intentions.
- An increased sense of joy.
- Expectations fall away as we learn the power of setting intentions.
- An increased sense of joy.
The act of significantly shifting awareness from one set of beliefs, to another is called a paradigm shift. As a whole, the entire planet is going through a paradigm shift. It’s transforming old patterns of collective dissonance that are no longer needed anymore. And it is doing it through experience. Each one of us are living our lives based on the level of consciousness that we know to be true. And as a collective, we are stuck in patterns of blame, shame, lack and struggle attracting the experience that reinforces the patterns, until some motivating factors break down the programs. The solution to shifting consciousness is to step outside the patterns with awareness. Typically we are blind to the patterns until something shows us differently.
If we don’t consciously seek change, change seeks us through experience of motivating factors to get our attention, based on the vibrations we attract that seek balance. Everyone is on their own journey of discovering the process of seeking balance through transformation, whether they are aware of it or not.
As mentioned, a crucial part of shifting is recognizing and addressing our shadow side, the deepest parts of ourselves that we are often blind too, deny or do not want to admit. The root of our shadows are the repressed emotions based in patterns of fear. Clearing and transmuting this shadow dissonance resets consciousness back to balance. Negative energy like anger and fear are heavy, contracted and entangled frequencies. Positive energy like love and peace are light, free and spacious resonance. Think of it like a deep cleansing of the palette and paths that hold consciousness in place. I often refer to the work, that I facilitate as ‘dredging a river’ or ‘roto rooter’ type movement as deep swaths of energy is moved quickly to allow for flow. The more I study and learn, the more I find it intriguing, and fascinating, like a pioneer, exploring a whole new world of ever-changing horizons.
In Multi Dimensional Healing personal sessions, we work to clear and get our awareness into the contracted energy of blocks and consciousness that is conditioned in negative patterns held on all planes of reality. (Please see my last blog for a more mechanical description of how energy healing works) Our conditioned consciousness forms the personalities, identities, positions and roles of what we experience as life. We are all impacted and shaped by the circumstances, karma, deeds and events that comprise the environment in which we live. The stories we tell, generate emotion – the vibrational frequencies that reinforce this conditioning.
That is, until a catalyst motivates change. The status quo of our world is about control. What we can and cannot control either creates a safety zone and level of comfort we’ve built a lifestyle around, or knocks us out with some form of stimulus. Discomfort, pain, chaos and tragedy not only motivates change, but it can catapult transformation as what we 'thought' was our world is literally shaken to the core. AND IT IS. Transformational change is a metamorphosis of 'consciousness', the fundamental views of all that we THINK we are. Many people get stuck in cognitive dissonance, revolving doors of thinking and triggered reactions that are literally energetically programmed on a cellular, molecular, karmic, genetic and dimensional levels. The recognition that we are programmed patterns of thought, beliefs, words and behavior, that manifests into action in and of itself is a big awareness. From this, we can find compassion and understand that all people are operating from their own level of consciousness.
Albert Einstein reminds us; “You cannot solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it,” What he means is that we have to shift out of the very mindset, circumstances and lifestyle that created the conditioning FIRST in order to find any kind of resolution. Because the very conditions and conditioning themselves, created it. That is, until circumstances instigate or initiate a need, recognition or call for change.
So getting back to Gandhi’s quote which is often misquoted as saying: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” What this enlightened Guru and master agent of change really said has much more, depth, impact and meaning.
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Gandhi is saying that we are a microcosm of the macrocosm! If we master our dimensional nature, we become an agent of personal change that IS global in nature. From experience, I’ve found our inner transformation; spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically -- impacts everything. We see our friends and family shift as our vibrations change, either by leaving your orbit or learning to adapt to yours. This is just one of the many symptoms of transformational change.
The evolutionary work that we do to shift our own beliefs, calm our frantic mind, eat better, serve others, forgive and find harmony and peace will not only manifest our own destiny, but the destiny of our homes, communities, cities, states, country’s and the very planet itself.
When we work to evolve, we begin to realize that we are so much more than this flesh and bone existence, so much more than this one life experience. We begin to recognize our transcendent capability; that we indeed are connected to all things and all beings. We come to know and understand that there is a greater field of existence running in, around and through us all and we cannot help but care and find the Grace move through our challenges with love as our guide.
So now, do you see how the election is a Divine part of the play of transformation? It is a motivator to bring awareness to the negative patterns of the separation consciousness that are deeply ingrained in a society completely ‘sick’ and out of balance with nature and Wholeness. It is illuminating what is out of balance so we can address it. And it is an opportunity for individual self exploration leading to self realization – to know ourselves through the process of transforming the dark into light through every experience.

The mission of Multi Dimensional Healing is to help awaken an expanded nature, to create a shift in consciousness, one person, one place, one group at a time—to help us recognize that we are all a part of an interconnected whole, inspired to act to help humanity and our mother planet thrive. I call this Earthwork. Every Multi Dimensional group healing or workshop creates what’s called ‘harmonic resonance’; a large field of energy that exponentially multiplies and harnesses the group energy and radiates it through participants and out into the world through the web lines that interconnect everything. Our intention is always in the highest and best interest to evolve, heal, transform and awaken us to our Whole Self, our expanded nature.These healings are transformational in nature, please bring a mat, blanket, pillow and water for your comfort.

The Multidimensional Reality of Transformation, October, 2016
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” - Rumi
If you're reading this, then perhaps you already know what it takes to spiritually change.
Transformation is a metamorphosis.
To use a common metaphor, think of the caterpillar that enters the cocoon to emerge as a butterfly; virtually no part of the caterpillar is left during the metamorphosis process. This thick, crawling creature with stocky legs liquifies to emerge as a delicate, thin and beautiful flying machine. In the same way we as humans seek to break down and free ourselves from the blocks to our Divine development. We learn to move away from control and into a path of surrender, shifting the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual patterns that keep us stuck in the hamster wheel of illusion. The rules of what we know to be the game of life change to adopt new attitudes and an expanding awareness deepening into something greater and bigger. Some call this process awakening, enlightenment or Self realization.
Whatever you call it, it is a process of evolving and transition that is much more deep and complex than the mind can imagine.
As an energy healer, I've experienced moving through my own transformational process as the best teacher. I found, we often think we are finished with a certain pattern, only to have it crop up again, and again and again. Why?
From what I've learned in 11 years of training as a Vortex Healer is that we are much more than we think we are. We are much more than chakras, meridian pathways, energy bodies, auras and chi… We are an integral part of a vast, dynamic and complex energetic system that exists everywhere that we do – in multiple realities. Through training with Ric Weinman, a master at mapping energy, i've learned that our energy system is interconnected and interwoven with conditioning that reflects the 'story' of who we think we are. This conditioning is based on our core or original separateness from the Whole; our ego.
When we meditate and tap into expanded states, we can bring our awareness deeply into our conditioned areas of separation consciousness and transform or awaken them. But when we think we have shifted key or crucial issues, perhaps we have shifted only what we see, the tip of the iceberg. In my experience, there is so much more to move.
VortexHealing® teaches us that our deeply conditioned consciousness of negative patterns, habits, positions and identifications are held in four main areas of focus that are hard to reach.
* Incarnational, the karmic experience of our past life history
* Ancestral history carried in our DNA by the lineage of our genetics.
* Present life experience, the events and circumstances reflected in this life
* Divine or higher dimensional blueprints
Working with VortexHealing®, we work with a Divine Intelligence that knows exactly where to go and what to do to clear our conditioning. Vortex carries the expression of magical transformation enabling it to transform our deepest conditioning on emotional, physical, karmic , genetic and spiritual levels. The result is not just powerfully transformational, but this kind of clearing is an awakening to the true nature of consciousness itself.
Its this deep connection with Divine presence that makes Multi Dimensional Healing so unique. For it bridges both the energy and the consciousness of pure Source intelligence to guide and optimize movement. Remember, our core conditioning is based on separateness, so it is critical to not only clear the blocks and patterns, but to transform them back into freedom and wholeness.
That is why I say that every Multi Dimensional Healing, whether personal, in a group or workshop, is an awakening. We set our intention and the energy of Source follows our guidance to the highest and best outcome, often with amazing results. But hey, I am not in charge. :-)
