Twin Flames – what they are, and what they are not!

Screenshot_20190920-115129.png

By far the best podcast I’ve ever listened to about twin flames. If you would like to find out more about twin flames and get down to earth info that’s grounded in real experience. Listen to this amazing podcast and forget everything you’ve ever read or heard about twin flames so far.

For a long time I’ve avoided the topic of twin flames on my spiritual path because it is probably THE topic that is misused most in the spiritual community. So it was easier to just not go there..

What a twin flame is in my opinion, and what a twin flame is not: 

❌A twin flame union is not an over romanticized perfect relationship in which everything goes perfect and you always agree and never argue  

✔️A twin flame union is the purest form of mirroring Self in an external person which causes every shadow aspect to come up in both parties which causes energetic flare ups/arguments basically with Self outwardly projected into the other person. 

❌A twin flame union is not a relationship that never requires work or communication about things, where things go smoothly. 

✔️A twin flame union is however a bond that requires work every day, constantly where transparent communication is the only option.

❌A twin flame union is not a relationship where you always want to be together and being apart is terrible. 

✔️An average twin flame union is a relationship of magnetism, pushing and pulling where even after union and living together there is pushing and pulling which allows for accelerated mirrored learning to occur at a way faster rate than single souls do on their own, which in turns causes twins to need decent times of space to be alone to integrate the downloads or mirrored Self aspects before uniting again to work on more aspects together.

❌A twin flame union is NOT a way to spiritually bypass finding true inner love. 

✔️A twin flame union will only occur AND only withstand the pressure of the magnetism once finding true SELF love is obtained first.

Despite it being the hardest and most challenging one, it is the purest form of integration of ourselves and our partner possible, you will not be able to bond more closely with any other person than with your true twin flame, because they are the mirror aspect of yourself. Often the pairing is also a very unlikely one and they have very different personalities, because each soul carries opposite aspects of the spectrum to form the whole together. They do often have similar values and main interests. 

Watch or listen to the podcast below to get a really decent view of what a true twin flame union really looks like!

Lion’s gate, conscious motherhood, adversity==>contrast==>growth.

Lion’s gate

We’ve passed most of this year’s Lion’s gate and have one day left tomorrow. As every year it causes a big energetic shift within us, whether we’re aware of it or not. Whether you are up to date on the latest astrological developments and know what is going on cosmically, whether you believe that we are influenced by certain star/planetary alignments or not. Most people go through a certain shift during this time of the year.

We see it on the news, even Gaia herself shifts and purges energy, releasing old energy (tornadoes in Amsterdam?), more emotional violence taking place (shootings, attacks, murders), no one escapes the shift that occurs in energy during this astrological new year basically.

Especially because this year’s Lion’s gate followed a pretty intense Mercury Retrograde, it was very palpable and the contrast was immense. The Lions Gate is basically a star alignment between Gaia and Sirius. It’s called this way because it occurs in the astrological sign of Leo. And each year when these stars line up because of this alignment high frequency vibrations are released that influence our auric fields and energetic bodies. It resonates with certain particles of our system which causes intense and rapid spurts or growth which can be accompanied by growing pains so to speak. Which for us creates more spiritual activation.

So if you’ve been feeling off, experienced very high emotions one moment, very low the next, it’s your system integrating all these frequencies and the best thing to do during this accelerated time of astrological surges is to just flow with what comes. With the feelings and don’t resist, it’s this resistance that creates more tension and just makes life harder. Which brings me to my next topic.

conscious motherhood

These surges and energy shifts are also noticeable on social media. I can tell from just reading the daily posts that appear in some of the spiritual circles I am a member of online. There is one online women’s circle where a woman, conscious mother wrote about how much empathy she felt for mothers who were clearly losing it during this specific time. And if you are a mom.. I know you’re lying if you plan on telling me that in all of your mothering years you have never felt this way. Because I know you have, I have! It’s motherhood and it’s challenging but it’s possible, and even more, it’s growth and it’s strengthening. She felt bad for the moms who were sat on the couch in tears, crying day after day about how hard it was, how they felt like they had lost themselves. And I feel their pain too. I commented on her post because I too see it and have experienced it and that is partly also what got me into the idea of offering an e-book about this topic. What I told her was the following

“It is important that we, as moms demand from themselves that we thrive as a mom, as a woman and as a human being. Because that is the only way our kids can really see the joy of life, by us setting the example. Sure it’s hard.. I have a 5 year old now who was colicky, highly sensitive and immediately overstimulated as a baby, when too many people were near her, a super light sleeper.. you get it, and it is easy to feel like you’re becoming a victim to this and I insist that I find ways to love life and be the best mom I can be at the same time. Energy does so much! If you live in a relaxed energy and just flow with what comes and stand in your creative power as a woman and do what you love while still trying to be a good mom (I have to admit I needed to work on this so much and it took me about 3 years to kind of master this) then your kid will see it and will want to follow your example. She is a handful.. but these kids chose us to be their physical guardians and vessels for them to enter the planet in this time of ascension. We can do this AND be the best versions of ourselves! I can relate, I feel like that too, and I acknowledge those feelings when they come up, feeling like it is too much, too hard, too intense, but I immediately check myself, and go ok.. I am not truly aligning with that on the grander scale, I am feeling like this in the moment, I can change it now, and choose a different feeling and experience for myself.”

There ARE ways to still be a good mom and still make time for yourself

There ARE ways to insist on self-development and still be a good mom

There ARE ways to connect with spirit and your God-essence and still be a good mom

  • accept help
  • include your kids in your activities
  • model conscious behavior
  • spend more time outside
  • organisation is key

Right now as I am developing a growing baby bump again and plagued by the occasional exhaustion. I am working on illustrations for an awesome kid’s book written by a friend of mine, active kindergartner at home for the summer, regular day job and attempting to offer other creative things and little by little jotting down paragraphs for this little e-book. If I can do it then other moms can do it too. So moms, let this Lion’s gate be the powerful surge of energy that you need to truly even become more radiant and stand in your creative power and let go of what’s holding you back!

Gratitude is the key in using the Law Of Attraction!

PicsArt_04-27-10.59.07

I apparently started this post a month and a half ago! Life has been hectic… I saved it as a draft and never finished it.

But the picture says it all: gratitude and knowing that you already have it.

If you think it, it is in your vortex,
if it is in your vortex, the universe has it in store for you,
if the universe has it in store for you, you only have but to remove your own limits and take what is in your vortex by aligning with source,
aligning with source will allow you to align with what is inside your vortex,
and aligning with what is in your vortex means getting what you want. 

In my case it was a bicycle. It might not seem like a big deal, but to me it was. Because it was just another example of how focusing on abundance and gratitude and de-focusing on lack and the absence of something actually caused the item that I wanted to manifest to appear in my reality. It had always been right there, in my vortex. I just had to remove the limits and the “lack of” thought pattern and once I did that the bike just popped up out of nowhere almost!

I’d been wanting to buy an electric bike for a while now. But a good one is rather expensive. I even went to the bank for a loan, they turned me down which caused me to focus on the “lack of”…for a second! I caught myself and realized that by doing that I was no longer in alignment and was focusing on what I didn’t have.. which would only bring more of what I didn’t have. I had started to resent my old bike. And realized I had to start living in gratitude again. I completely let go of the new bike idea and just focused on gratitude, each time I would ride the bike I would offer it gratitude, I would think of things that I liked about the bike, things that it did really well for me, things that I had enjoyed about the bike. I made a habit out of this. And each time I rode the bike I would do this… until after a while I forgot about the whole lack-feeling of not having a new and better bike. And I was just..content, it was ok, sure it wasn’t my dream bike but it was ok, I liked it, I started liking my new habit of being nice to my bike. And within a week of starting this new habit. I was on facebook, just absentmindedly scrolling, and this ad popped up for an e-bike. I clicked on it.. and ended up on facebook marketplace and saw a bike there that was completely within my price range, used, but in very good condition, and I ended up buying it, being perfectly able to afford it, without needing a loan from the bank. And it does the job perfectly! So the trick is to attract things to you but to not focus too much on it either.. it’s in that perfect balance of attracting it in gratitude and aligning with joy in the now that you can attract something better.

And that’s how I ended up attracting my new bike!

Nobody explains the concept of using gratitude to manifest what you want better than Abraham/Esther Hicks:

How manifestation cycles link into the wheel of the year: Imbolc and the phase before the last phase of manifestation: materialization

For those who are new to the wheel of the year and pagan holidays. Aka earth-holidays or basically days of specific meaning in the cycle of a year based on the seasons and specific astrological events. The days are usually based on the northern hemisphere so for those of you living below the equator, you celebrate those days the other way around.

The first of February, Imbolc [Old Irish i mbolg meaning in the belly, a time when sheep began to lactate and their udders filled and the grass began to grow] is the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It’s also called the beginning of spring. And let that be exactly why it makes such a great metaphor for manifestation and law of attraction work.

xxpict2706_watermark

Because when you look outside where I live, there is still frost everywhere. On the grass, on the streets, on cars.. Yet something new is beginning underneath the surface and it is definite, nature doesn’t doubt itself. Nature just follows the flow of the universe and delivers. There is no doubt, not one year, that the spring equinox wouldn’t be filled with blossoms and warmer weather and budding flowers. Even though now it’s still invisible to the eye. It is already there. Already “in the vortex” as Abraham-Hicks would say, of Gaia. Therefor it can not not happen. Just like how we will plant a seed in our manifestation process and then we have to sit with it for a while and water it, feed it nourishing energy, confidence and underneath the surface the materialization will follow.

So tomorrow as a symbolic way to celebrate Imbolc maybe remind yourself of the seeds you planted. Send positive intentions and energy towards them, have you been watering them? And giving them nourishment? Send love to your energetic seeds so they may soon materialize!

How will you celebrate tomorrow?

ceremony and ritual as manifestation tools

Many pagan cultures use rituals and ceremony to manifest their desires. They have full moon rituals, rites of passage, solstice ceremonies and eclipse rituals.. Much like divination tools are helpful for enhancing psychic abilities, they are not necessary to have a direct line with spirit, but definitely helpful. The same goes for rituals and ceremonies.

Everything is energy, energy becomes emotions, emotions become thoughts, thoughts become things. Everything is about the intention that’s behind it.

This recent full wolf moon, which was a supermoon and lunar eclipse had very potent astrological energy behind it. Full moon energy is something comparable to energy being kicked up a notch. Whatever is playing out in your life, it will be magnified and it will be in your face.

PicsArt_06-17-12.19.00

Family dynamics, karmic patterns, fears, they will show up and be in your face. Eclipse energy in general is a great energy to shed old layers. I remember the solar eclipse from 2017, it was the beginning of the peeling of an entire old layer that started to happen for me. Lunar eclipses are more subtle, but not less powerful. It’s a great time to set intentions and repeat manifestations while setting the intention using this energy. The thing is, it can look any way you want it to look. No one ceremony or ritual is “the right one”. It’s all about what personally feels right to you.

When I was growing up I was very much into paganism and ancient practices and I would study them and read about them to “get it right”. I dove into Wicca for a while when I was a teenager, but after learning about the Law Of Attraction and manifestation I soon realized that all that was, was a materialization of applying the Law Of Attraction. You just make it visible, tangible, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be exactly like it’s described in the book of shadows, or whatever book you follow. Make your own book, make your own rituals. They can be as simple as pulling a card from an oracle deck you have laying around on a full moon and just closing your eyes and thinking about it. It can be burning sage and just focusing on cleansing whatever needs to be cleansed, it can be burning affirmations written down on paper and using the fire energy to work with the lunar energy to help manifest your desires. It can be nothing at all.. it can be you sitting in meditation on your couch focusing and visualizing.

It’s truly all about intention. And being consistent. You will gain much more out of life if you listen to affirmations daily while walking your dog or doing the dishes, than doing some elaborate ceremony once or twice a year with chanting and burning sage and drumming and an hour long deep trance meditation, and having no other spiritual practice at all for the rest of the year. Of course you can do both, but you get the point. Sometimes less is more.

I did a quick 15 minute meditation guided by Jemese Lachel who is a spiritual mentor & psychic healer. She’s very down to earth and her simple yet impactful meditations are a great example of how you can just do what feels right for you, in meditation and ceremony. We often also draw inspiration from soul-memory. Your soul remembers practices and rituals from past lives that work well with your own personal energy. Some people have a great response to burning palo santo, while others such as myself have a very strong response energetically to burning sage. I know people who have no reaction or feelings at all to burning either. But they have their own things that work for them, that their soul remembers and responds to, such as working with specific crystals or deities. Find what works for you and use it!

Happy full wolf moon/eclipse day! The energies are around for about 3 days so set the intention, and do what feels right for you!
