This Summer's Roller Coaster Ride

It has been one wild year so far. I said May was going to be magical and momentous! I think I failed to mention it was also going to be momentously challenging. May was by far the hardest month I have experienced in a long time. While the changes I experienced were very positive, the emotional roller coaster I rode was everything a roller coaster can be: exhilarating, fast, scary, nauseating, and happy to have survived it! This ride took me to the depths of love and opened my heart in ways I never thought possible and the "good" news is - it's not over yet!

We have got some of the most potent ascension energy coming this summer. But before I go into that, let me just set the stage for this dramatic shift we are about to experience.

In the merry month of May, Uranus, the planet of cosmic consciousness, entered the earth sign of Taurus. There has been much written about this dynamic transit. For me, the highest vibration of Uranus in Taurus is bringing Heaven to Earth. It forces us to finally embody all of the higher teachings we have so diligently studied for years, or should I say, lifetimes! As I wrote in Hardwired to Heaven, "A true creator creates with one hand in Earth and the other in Heaven." To live as the gods that we are, we must embody our divinity into every cell of our bodies. This is the ultimate gift of Uranus in Taurus.

There will be five energy gateways this summer: the summer solstice on June 21, a partial solar eclipse in Cancer on July 12, a total lunar eclipse in Aquarius on July 27, the Lion's Gate on 8/8, and another partial solar eclipse in Leo on August 11. First, let me say that it is rare to have three eclipses in row. Generally, we have a lunar and solar eclipse within two weeks of one another. This makes these three eclipses that much more meaningful. Next, there are five major gateways. Five is the number of the human being. Pythagoras viewed the number 5 as the marriage between Heaven and Earth - the Hieros Gamos, the sacred union with the Divine on a personal level, relationship level, and the greater whole of humanity. We are entering the energetic pentagram of divine embodiment.

The summer solstice, the longest day of the year, reminds us that life on Earth is dependent on the sun. We need light and the consciousness it brings in order to thrive on planet Earth. The first eclipse is in the emotional sign of Cancer. Here we prepare our soil by feeding it our emotions until we reach emotional maturity. The total lunar eclipse in Aquarius will help us to tend to our mind and bring it into balance and cleanse our high heart so that we embody the love of humanity. The Lion's Gate brings in new light codes to enable the embodiment of our Divine Sovereignty. The third solar eclipse in Leo requires that we love ourselves fiercely and bring the heart into balance. All of this energetic divine grace helps us to truly balance the mind and heart and embody our Divinity.

During these potent gateways, many of the planets will be retrograde. Jupiter has been retrograde since March 8 and will go direct on July 10, giving us some breathing space. Saturn has been retrograde since April 17 and will move forward on September 6. Pluto went retrograde a few days after Saturn on April 22 and will appear to move again on September 30. Neptune goes retrograde on June 18 until November 24. Mars goes retrograde June 26 until August 27. Mercury goes retrograde July 26 until August 18. And finally, Uranus goes retrograde on August 7 for the remainder of the year until January 6, 2019. Wow, that's a lot of retrograde! Retrograde planets offer an opportunity to go within and sift through our compost pile of the past to rid ourselves of what no longer serves while tending the soil of our greatest treasures. It is not a time to move full steam ahead, rather it is a time to go within - to go into the physical and mine our Divinity. Before we can emerge this fall, we have heart and soul work to do.

Just as a roller coaster ascends to gain potential energy, we, too, will ascend this summer and reach the apex of our ascension when we balance our hearts and minds, master our emotions, experience true self love, and embody our Divine selves. What a ride!

The Magic of 2018

The first quarter of 2018 felt more like 2017: trying, tiring, and tumultuous. It was a time of deep cleaning and preparation for the gifts that we are about to receive. Through this 3D inner metamorphosis to 5D, we can now emerge fresh from our chrysalis. It's time to dry off our wings and learn how to fly in all our splendor.

The rest of 2018 will feel much different. We finally awaken to the grandest version of ourselves and the greatest vision of our work. We have held them lovingly in our hearts, knowing that one day we would step into our divine destiny. That day is here.

As we renew our commitment to our life's mission and slowly create our work step-by-step, we open the cosmic door to our treasure chest. Synchronicity abounds. When we align our heart, mind, body, and spirit with our soul's mission, we create a portal through which divine dispensation flows. The more we do our inner work, the more we attract opportunities to share our outer work with others. This is the true abundance of 5D: exquisite bliss from being of service to the One Heart.

We awaken fully to our our creative power. We realize that, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we too, have had the power all along. But the power that we are wielding now comes from our heart, not our head. The One Heart wrote it into our software that we could only become fully empowered once our heart is fully open.

I recently experienced a plethora of uncanny synchronicity and the most profound heart opening of my life. My heart longed for someone that would know me on a soul level, someone with which I could share my deepest desires and share in my work. I could never have imagined how everything that I had dreamt of could unfold so beautifully and effortlessly before me. Love and magic do come from the most unexpected places and in the most unexpected ways. 

Your miracle will appear soon if it hasn't already. Be patient this year for you are building a firm foundation that will last a lifetime. Saturn in Capricorn requires it. Pay attention to your intuition and follow every bit of guidance. Create like the God that you are. Love even more than you thought possible for this is the key that opens the magical door to your heart's desires.

Taking the Wheel

Wiped clean. Fresh start. Blank slate. Pure potential. Uncharted territory.

Can you relate to any of these phrases? We are in a new time and a new place - a place where humanity has never visited before. A new day and a new dawn is breaking. Everything is different and more importantly, everything works differently.

Welcome to human 2.0. Not only has our operating system been changed, but the machine itself, our body, has changed. The Adam Kadmon (the perfect body that merges with God) is awakening in many of us, allowing our full potential as co-creators with God to emerge. We are now conscious "real-time" creators of our life. Ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall open for you - not twelve years from now, not twelve weeks from now but maybe twelve days from now or less! As I wrote in my first book, In the Key of Life: An Activational Journey to the Soul, "If we truly believe we can create our reality, then synchronicity happens immediately. The perceived time lapse between the thought and its manifestation is decreasing now. This time lapse facilitated your slumber and allowed for the illusion of powerlessness to pervade your minds until now. This is what it means to awaken."

Have you noticed that you are manifesting more quickly now? Pay attention to your thoughts and emotions. Notice what emotions are coming up, old patterns that are surfacing to be cleared, and what manifests because of them. Recently, I was clearing an old pattern and I manifested a series of physical symptoms from the flu, to a bout of dizziness that kept me in bed for a day, a very painful rib that went out of alignment, and a fall all within a month! I'm not saying that your clearing or thoughts will manifest in this way. We all process our inner work differently. The point is things will show up rapidly and repeatedly until we shift our thoughts and emotions. I also had the experience of thinking of something I would like and then someone gives it to me without asking!

We can no longer live by default and let the Universe choose for us. The quick pick is no longer available for life's lottery. We have to pick our numbers. It's time to move from passive disempowered complacency to actively co-creating the life we envision.

Taking the wheel of creation can be a bit intimidating. In 2004, I performed a death and rebirth ceremony for myself. After the ceremony, I remember feeling similar to how I feel now. I wrote about it in In the Key of Life: "I asked for freedom and now that it is here, I find myself without a clear focus and my energy scattered. I would call myself back, but I don't know whom I am calling. I know I do not choose to call back the person I was. Is this what it feels like to be God? To know that I am like an Etch A Sketch wiped clean and waiting for the next creation to appear is daunting. I am the sea of pure potentiality.I felt it in my body, so much power. I want to run away and yet I know I must step into my power. It takes incredible courage to walk into it and say, 'I am God incarnate. I am the divine in form. Now I create.' Now I manifest, not from old unconscious thought patterns, but from each breath of my being and each word I utter...."

To successfully maneuver this energy, keep focused on your goal. Each day, revisit, revise, and refine what you choose to create and take at least one tangible step towards its manifestation. Show the Universe that you are in the driver seat of your dreams and watch what the Universe steers your way. 

Happy Creating!

2018 - Time to Land!

As we reflect on all the blessings, sorrows, pain, and joy that 2017 brought us, it's hard not to take a sigh of relief that it's almost over. The world has seen historical natural disasters, societal tensions and riots, changes in governments and their leaders, the degradation of our natural resources, and the threat of nuclear war in just twelve short months. I, for one, am happy to bid 2017 good-bye.

Saturn is a planet that likes to hold your feet to the fire to be sure that the grandest version of yourself is manifest in the world. It moves into Capricorn next week. Capricorn is an Earth sign and Saturn wants us to make our dreams a physical reality. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 literally unearthing what we individually and collectively have kept hidden. Uranus, the planet of sudden change, will move into Taurus (another Earth sign) in May of 2018. Our physical reality is about to change but Taurus will slow the pace a bit. Baby steps and going with the flow work best with this energy. What does all of this mean?

With so many slow planets in Earth signs, it's clear that it's time to ground our dreams and physically carry out our life's work - the reason we came to Earth at this crucial time. Saturn in Capricorn is here to help and Uranus in Taurus is here to insure that we build our new life slowly and steadily. These planets and their placements remind us that we are Earthlings in addition to spiritual beings.

Now is a good time to prepare your soil so that you can lay down roots in 2018. Meditate on what your heart beckons you to do. Give thanks for all of the lessons and blessings that you received in 2017. Do a ceremony to release the past five years of limbo land for it is finally time to land! 

May you manifest your heart's deepest desires and ground your life's work in 2018. 

Thank you for all of your support and Happy Holidays!

7 Steps to Manifesting Meditation

As the Great American Eclipse draws near, I wanted to share a powerful meditation with you to do on the day of the eclipse to take full advantage of this once in a lifetime energy. These seven steps are from my book, Hardwired to Heaven: Download Your Divinity Through Your Heart and Create Your Deepest Desires. The book describes in detail the science and spirituality behind using your heart's electromagnetic field to create. This eclipse is opening the portal in our hearts, our sacred coordinates, to the power of the Universe - love.

All About the Heart

I asked myself this morning how I would define success in life. My definition came without hesitation: How well do I follow my heart? Then I reviewed my life to see how successful I have been.

Even as a child, I always wanted to do something with my life that would help people. My natural love of science and my innate curiosity with the heart led me to pursue a career as a cardiologist. I worked as an electrocardiograph technician in college. One day I overheard a bunch of interns in the hallway talking about the patients in not so nice terms. In that moment, I decided that was not the career I wanted. My career is about the heart and I found no heart in anything they had said that day. Even though it was an "isolated incident," it is still blazoned in my memory. Because of that experience and the loss of both of my parents shortly after, what I thought was my heart's desire was about to change.

I went from job to job for a while not knowing where my heart was taking me. I taught high school biology for a time, then I entered the Army Reserve and became a medical laboratory technician, and then began a career as an industrial hygienist for OSHA. This showed me that the only thing that will really change "the working conditions" of America is a change in consciousness, not a change in laws. I left and began a career as an alternative health practitioner. I became a massage therapist, Reiki Master Teacher, and Integrative Energy Therapy Practitioner and taught massage and Reiki. My interest in spirituality blossomed and it became my passion.

Even in love, I followed my heart instead of the norm. I had been attracted to women and thought that I would find my partner in the military. My heart led me to her within two years of enlisting. I thought what my heart wanted at the time was the "American Dream" but my heart wanted more. After 14 years, I left my partner and the home that we had built together for what I thought was another relationship when it was just the Universe's way of helping me to leave. Within a year, I left everything and everyone I loved to move to Sedona and follow my heart's passion.

I immersed myself in the metaphysical and learned and cleared much. I wrote my first book, In the Key of Life: An Activational Journey to the Soul and did much of the research for my second book, Hardwired to Heaven: Download Your Divinity Through Your Heart and Create Your Deepest Desires while in Sedona

I traveled across the U.S. ten times. My last trip to the Pacific Northwest was the most magical because I truly followed my heart. What I felt, I created. I manifested a beautiful house in Gold Beach on the Oregon Coast where I wrote the chapter on Blood and Water for Hardwired to Heaven while overlooking the Pacific Ocean each day. The trip took me back to Sedona to see that this time of intense learning and traveling was coming to an end. I returned to New York and lived with my sister. My days of traveling and searching had depleted much of my resources.

I've spent the last six years reliving and clearing old patterns. Who hasn't?! Hardwired to Heaven and my third book, Into the Heart of Love: Decoding Love's Hidden Power, were published during this time. Everything I did to get Hardwired to Heaven out there seemed to evaporate. I was judged by my family for not getting a "real job." I entered the dark night of the soul and at one point wanted to end it all, thinking that I was a failure and there was no reason to stay if I was not able to do my work.  

I looked back on my life today and saw that even when it was not "normal" to leave a good paying career, to have a same sex partner, to leave home without knowing where I would live or how I would support myself, to write books that many people did not yet understand, and through the enormous intensity of this ascension roller-coaster, I still and always, followed my heart. How could I not? An astrologer told me that I came to heal the heart and now I see that my life has always been all about the heart. 

What we gather materially in this life does not matter to the soul. What matters is how well we follow our hearts in service of the One Heart.

"Your soul's treasure chest is buried within the sacred coordinate in your heart. There you will find the riches of the Universe." ~ Hardwired to Heaven.

Love's Door

Well, what a spring it has been! Some days feel like we are on a runaway train and others feel like the train can't get out of the station. The energy has been erratic, sporadic, and super-fast and has taken a toll on every level of our being.

According to the astrology for 2017, things are supposed to get better for us after this weekend. Some astrologers liken this energy to a portal or doorway to a new life and a new way of living our lives.With the north node in Leo and the south node in Aquarius, I feel it is all about going into our hearts, living our hearts' desires, and letting love lead the way. It's time to express ourselves in a new way that is uniquely ours and true to the reason the One Heart brought us here in the first place.

Love's doorway to the soul is now opening. As this doorway to the divine opens in each of our hearts, it connects us to the Source of love itself. This sacred coordination of love and light ignites the passion within our hearts, which provides the fuel needed to propel us into this new life. 

Love is creative energy - the primal spark from which the Universe was formed. At this pivotal time, we have all the resources we need to create our hearts' desires and live the life we came here to live - all because we are awakening to the truth and power of love.

As I wrote in my new book, Into the Heart of Love: Decoding Love's Hidden Power: "When we finally realize that love is more than an emotion, understand the real reason why the heart is associated with love, and learn how to tap into the infinite power of love through the heart, we will change the world."

This week, take some time to go within your heart and open love's door. See what gifts love has in store for you.

Available now through Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.
