The End of Shame?

In the wake of last weekend’s workshop CRYSTAL SOUND, SILENCE, and COMMUNICATION, which I had co-facilitated with Laura Madsen (next date: July 8 & 9), I am reminded of two core components from Tom Kenyon’s HATHOR workshop in Seattle last November: BUILDING THE NEW WORLD… requires the clearing of the prenatal matrix, and the washing away of the levels of shame and guilt from our collective consciousness. The Hathors state that AWARENESS, CHOICE, and VIBRATION are the three keys to changing destiny, and in our workshop, Laura and I used the “Map of Consciousness” (from POWER VS FORCE) by David R. Hawkins, MD as a framework to generate awareness around the way we communicate with ourselves, with others, and with Life. Upon further reflection, and I have worked with this framework extensively for over a decade, it became even more clear that as we STOP SHAMING AND BLAMING, HUMILIATING and COMPLANING, we begin to ERASE THE FOUNDATION for all stress, strife, struggle, and suffering. Suggested practice: Louise Hay is a high proponent of mirror work. So am I. My suggestion is to combine the Hawaiian HO’OPONOPONO method for intra and interpersonal conflict resolution with mirror work: Face yourself in the mirror and state: “I am sorry for the habit of shaming, humiliating, blaming, and complaining. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you!” We might be incorporating this practice at a Chakra Sound Bath in the near future. Stay tuned… Carpe diem!...

Learn Let Love – 3 Steps to Transforming the Conflicted Self

Conflict appears to be a natural by-product of human interactions. Some people say they thrive on conflict, others say they will do anything to avoid it. Who is right, which is the better way? One thing is for sure: Perpetual conflict does not create sustainable peace and prosperity. In fact the opposite is true: Perennial power struggles will eventually deplete hope, health, wealth, and happiness. A case in point is the USA, a nation that has been engaged in conflict or war somewhere on this planet for over a century. While there are times when conflict and war can stimulate renewal and prosperity, a continuum of such conditions will ultimately become unsustainable for even the richest societies and cause chaos and a final collapse. And so it is with our individual lives. What I have witnessed with thousands of life coaching clients is that over time the perennially conflicted mind turns bitter and hard. The consequences include an erosion of wealth: People lose their health, wealth, goodwill, and their most precious relationships. Where have these people gone wrong? I believe the root cause is very foundational. The definition of conflict includes “…a struggle for power.” Therefore, people who are in conflict with one another are struggling for something that they believe is short in supply, limited, or scarce. What this means is that they are not aware of the limitless power that they can access internally, so they search for it externally. Unfortunately, this strategy is doomed to fail because our source of life is internal and not external. Yes, we have to receive our air, water, food, and...
