Being Divine in Everyday Experiences and Challenges: Loving into the New Paradigm

My Title for this Blog is:  Loving into the New Paradigm…  which triggers for me the book,  Love in the Time of Cholera !

I am not alone when I assert that we are moving out of the old paradigm of Lack, Struggle and Pain… For centuries we have persisted in this darkness only peaking out of it for brief periods of awareness that a higher vibration can collectively be enjoyed.  We are facing the tipping point of the collective vibration of loving in abundance, ease and joyfulness.  There is enough gravity to the new paradigm for it to tip into full gear within this century and beyond.  And we have work to do to manifest this heaven on earth, as was always intended.

First,   let us be willing to acknowledge what we were born into:

  • lack of love/loving, scarcity thereof;
  • struggle to be loved/stay loving/attract love/hold onto love;
  • pain of fearful moments, memories, disappointment, sacrifice,   until you are willing to confront it and ask:
  • shall I trust love again …
  • I now renounce lack, struggle and pain

Step into:   I am love… You are love   … Let’s love…  Abundance, Ease and Joy!

Have I mentioned Patterns yet?  … Cycles, ways of being that get triggered and leave us in conditioned behaviors we repeat over and over… they are not new to us, in fact, they are so familiar that people know you as them… just ask your siblings.

Patterns trigger old survival mechanisms, behaviors, emotions, around events and memories stored in our Brain’s Amygdala, Hippocampus, Mid-brain … the parts of our brains that house links back to our ancestors’ everyday experiences and challenges and their pressing fears. When we  relinquish the emotions attached in those links, we  alert the links to release the patterns. Then we are free.

Pattern Recognition… there’s power in being aware.  Let me tell you a short story: I’m married to a race car enthusiast and trained race car driver. However, I would become irrationally wary of his maneuvers from time to time after seeing a turquoise car speeding past us on the highway or sitting in a parking lot, I would feel my heart start thumping loudly, my adrenaline on “warning: danger, danger”. I recently observed it as a triggered  Pattern – repetitive fear-based emotions, feelings attached to a memory you may not even recall, showing up by something in the present.

Finally, this event showed up. It’s a beautiful Spring day, 1966 – I am with four friends. My best friend Ev is driving on the Washington, DC Beltway, pressing the gas pedal way past the 75MPH posted speed limit to 90 MPH. We are in her Dad’s Buick convertible, top down, the girls jabbering, music blaring, Ev smoking a cigarette. We are racing back to Maryland University, College Park Campus, to attend our 2 o’clock classes. Ev’s Turquoise/White Buick speeding in and out of traffic, passing car after car, breaking every rule, I am silent … except for my thumping heart rate, adrenaline rushing through me. We arrived safely to our destination, and I never drove with Ev again. The unexpressed terror I experienced in that 25 minute ride was etched in my psyche to play over and over again for years.  A “Pattern”.

Why clear your Patterns?  Why be reactivated every time you see a “turquoise car”?  I want to be free to experience fully the vibration we are dwelling in, the New Paradigm: Loving in Abundance Ease and Joy.

Taking on being my truth, living in a state of Loving and Light: Abundance, Ease and Joy, this I vow. I am aware of this wonderful energy arising, the new paradigm we are becoming present to as members of the Gaia Family, Mother Earth and all her beings. Keeping this vow isn’t easy, is it?

I am doing my best to break the links, the “pings” my old patterns use to drop me back into the lower vibration.  I use EFT, Tapping, with myself and my clients to re-experience emotions of Lack, Struggle and Pain associated therein. Thanks to this awareness I’m a more comfortable passenger with my beloved husband, and I’ve noticed other pings that alert me about false danger I needn’t be experiencing while traveling by car.

So I ask you, fellow traveler, what pinged you today? Your boss, co-worker, husband, wife, partner, daughter, son, a turquoise car? Tell your truth, find your freedom. Keep tapping…




Being Divine in Everyday Experiences & Challenges: DOUBT

Doubt, conflicting feelings and thoughts on something you want. Akin to fear, it is the undoing of love energy.

Earlier this month I read Nick Ortner’s ( newsletter about doubt. Then I looked around me. I saw my beloved husband not feeling himself. He said he felt light-headed and nauseous as he went to sleep Friday night. He remained that way until Sunday mid-day, when I’d had enough of seeing ‘doubt’ and ‘dread’ emanating from his body.

I finally suggested he sit down next to me and have a private session to discover where doubt had displaced his divinity. We tapped the emotions of doubt and dread  and he left the chair restored to his loving, glowing, adventurous self. But it wasn’t to be a one-walked dog, as I found out over these last 10 days.  The symptoms returned… he was experiencing waves of nausea and being light-headed.  Yet one thing had changed… we weren’t afraid of the symptoms and just kept talking them away.  I am so grateful that we trusted trapping, assured our conversations would unconceal his real concerns.

So, my Beloveds, what about “Doubt”… it’s pervasive and invasive and it moves Love and Light right out of view.  Are you doubting yourself, your decisions, your actions…  Use your morning silence to uncover your self-talk; have you been doubting yourself saying:

  • why am I so tired… is Love/Loving available to/from me?
  • I feel so let down, is Light guiding me?
  • do I  long for love and joy in my life — it seems missing?
  • am I being the One I am seeking?
  • Am I doubting myself or being my best Self?

Wake up.  Be aware of who is leading you around… EGO…your critical voice/good girl-boy,  or your Soul, your divine self and it’s purpose.  Which questions are guiding you?

As we settle into the new energies of Abundance, Ease and Joy and release ourselves from Lack, Struggle and Pain, I ask you, “So what patterns of behavior have you noticed displace your being the higher vibration and trigger you back to the old energy paradigm of lack, struggle and pain. Be a detective, find out where mediocrity showed back up? Where did that old familiar habit of self-doubt, frustration, anger sweep over and capture you from being your Soul’s purpose?”

With or without our awareness, at every moment we are choosing consciously or unconsciously, doubt (or another emotion where fear resides) OR abundant, easy, joyful Love and Light … asked another way, so who chose who you were today at that meeting, on that date or phone call with your sibling, parent, lover, friend, co-worker … your ego-personality with its critical voice or good girl/boy act or the Soul ? Remember: be awe-inspiring, your glory, abundance, ease and joy.

  • Today,  I AM Abundance, full of Love and Light!
  • Today,  I AM Ease and loving with everyone!
  • Today,  I AM Joy, Peace, Grace!

Blessings my darlings.  Comments are welcome.


Waking into Despair

I assert that people can not or do not discern their own feelings and emotions from the “crowd’s” feelings and emotions.  And we get caught up in the negative feelings we have absorbed from the environments we frequent.  In my case,  I “feel” the despair or angst or whatever of my “kingdom”.

Are you recognizing the feelings into which you are awakening? Are those feelings yours?

My early morning practice is to sit in meditation on my balcony 18th floors above the Christina and Delaware Rivers. I first sit in awe of Mother Nature. Then I allow myself to fully take in my vista view of the City of Wilmington, of the most south/eastern part of Pennsylvania and south Jersey in the distance across the Delaware River. And of course there are the Sun or Clouds or rain while I enjoying the air on my skin.

As I sat in awe on this glorious morning, I softly sang my love song… the names of God as a prayer I made up as I sang. Then as I quieted my mind and senses, stilling myself, I sat, as One with the Universe, not distracted by the cars, trains, ducks, birds, planes, river traffic all happening at once within my view.

I asked, “Mother, Father, God Creator, Universal Source of All that Is, Elohim, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Guides, Guardians, here for my highest good, what is this nagging in my belly, in my upper chest, this pervasive dread or despair or sadness that is overwhelming me today?”  I listened in silence, breathing steadily and consciously.

I listened, “DESPAIR, my beloved, the feeling of deep sadness that love is scarce, beholding and tenuous at best for most of those in ‘your kingdom’: they surround you, they are across the bridges, rivers, land, moving on the highways stretching before you; all those within in those cars, trains, boats, homes, apartments and buildings where thousands and thousands are doing their thing. They live in doubt and despair.”

I sit in silence, tears flowing down my cheeks, and I heard the lamenting of DESPAIR coming from ‘my kingdom’. I sobbed. I heard the Mother remind me, “It is your Kingdom, so raise your vibration into high gear and radiate Affluence/Abundance, Ease/Simplicity and Joy/Peace.   Be divine for all who are just beginning to learn this new energy of Love and Light. Your tenacious diligence is being demanded of You, to practice sacred devotions —breathing consciously and taking mindful moments– to be present to life’s offerings.  Live passionately, live from wisdom rather than mediocrity and lack, struggle and pain. Be vigilant. It takes time and reminders to release old patterns of lack, struggle and pain because love and light are missing for so many. Awaken everyone, my beloved, and know that you are the One.”

I exclaimed, “I am the One? What do you mean, Mother?”

“Yes, all conscious beings are the One and together as One, we will shift this planet’s energy to affluence/abundance, ease/simplicity and joy/peace; to be Love and be the Light.”

I sat quietly and pondered my kingdom’s energetic needs and my role for today. How will it get expressed today? Tomorrow … I live in that question each day.

I remind you to remember to take the time to breathe consciously! Prana breath or circular breathing… choose what ignites your inner strength… you’ll know. Remember to take time for silence at least 5 minutes and more each day!  It’s the gift you give yourself, I promise.

Today, tomorrow, remember to sit in SILENT MEDITATION so the voice of the inner Godhead [I call mine Shekinah, what do you call your in-dwelling God: Kuan Yin, Durga, Kali, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Jesus, Allah, Mohammad, God, Adonyae, Elohim], can be heard. It’s whispering to you, are you hearing her/him —“follow your intuition and live your Soul’s purpose —   bring your Light where there is darkness and your Love where love is missing.”

Have a blessed day my darlings… let me know what you are learning about your patterns that distract your Soul’s work, and what you are seeing in your conversations with God…

I love you dearly, JMA (jewish mama)


Being Divine in our Everyday Experiences and Challenges

Beloved, I was asked by one of my clients to guide a group of her women friends in a conversation for being divine.  It is such a joy for me. Each woman brings her own take on manifesting herself as Goddess — as her Soul’s purpose — igniting her curiosity and allowing it to take shape.

I’ve invited us to explore who we are. I said, “We aren’t who I thought we were: a body/mind. We are a Soul, an eternal energy, lent to a Human Body and its Mind for a lifetime of the human experience. The Soul is pure Love, here to expand the human experience.”

Together we tease out what it means to co-mingle the human beings’ aspects of “being-doing-having” and the Soul’s purpose to bring light where there is darkness — to bring love where love isn’t. Each of us is choosing different avenues to maneuver our divine Universal Being, our Soul/Goddess, in our everyday experiences and challenges.

“Who is the Goddess?” asked Laura M this week. What a great question and one of many I have dwelt in since 1969 when my friend Marilyn C called to say her husband, pilot Roy, had been killed when his helicopter carrying wounded soldiers was shot down in Vietnam. We were only 22 !   I cried, whaled really…knowing my own husband was in harm’s way,  Who am I? What is my life for? Could this be all there is?

Is That All There Is, sung by Peggy Lee, 1969

Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that’s all there is my friends
Then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
Who or what was the inner voice that captured my heart and was beckoning me from time to time. When stillness prevailed and my mind stood quiet, I heard Her. The Goddess was awakening and my connection to Spirit was forming shape.

Now 45 years later, I listen for the voice within me …God, Spirit, Allah, Jesus, Shekinah… whomever She is called, whispering her love for me, ushering in new ideas and readying me for new opportunities. Pure love enveloping me and inviting me to play full out in bringing love and light, abundance, ease and joy into life… into this world too long suffering in lack, struggle and pain.

… more to come.
