Dare To Ask

Dare to ask

As many of you know spirituality or the experience of spirituality or your spiritual journey doesn’t have to end when you become a mother. I am working on a book titled “spiritual mothering” so I would know.
Spirituality changes, transforms.. when you become a mother. You gain a different perspective on your spiritual journey, on creating and on source and the energetic connection of your soul and those around you to, source.

Many moms almost gloat and brag about their martyr role. I know I sure have my moments when I get caught up in it but I never identify with it. I am a mom, but I am many things and mom is just one of them. If I were to identify with 1 word it would be creator. I am a creator of many things, portraits, a solid bond between myself and my children, pancakes and cookies, nice cups of tea, good conversations, books, ..  That’s a trap we simply have to rise above, identifying with the “martyr” role of motherhood, the “#momlife”. Especially during these challenging corona times where we’re all quarantined and where we often have no alone time when we are at home with the kids.

That’s when the title of this article came to me from source: “Dare To Ask”. I like it so much that I’m even considering adding another chapter to my book titled just that. And I have had my table of contents determined for months now. But “Dare To Ask” is something that many moms just refuse to do, out of pride, out of stubbornness, out of habit. But daring to ask for help is the ultimate act of self-love as a mother. It’s of the utmost importance to invest in yourself emotionally as much as you invest in others. As a mother, and as a person in general.

I’ve written an entire chapter in my book about it, I’m still working on it. There are lots of creative ways to find time alone with yourself and with spirit. To be present in the moment and grounded and calm. And if there is one thing that mothers are good at it’s being creative, we created small humans after all. So be creative. If possible find moments alone. And if that’s not possible, there are many creative ways to find moments of peace while being surrounded by other people.

When you wake up and you are lucky enough to have a partner at home with you, dare to ask for help. Dare to take a moment to sit in the grass and drink a coffee or a cup of tea. Dare to ask for alone time to recharge because not only are you hitting the reset button on yourself instead of overloading, you’re also teaching your children that time on their own is an essential part of life.

Being present in pandemic times.

As a collective we are going through unprecedented times. Times that we have not yet seen before in our modern day society. Times where we are being forced (by law even) to slow down or even stop completely. For some people this causes a feeling of panic in their chest, for others relief, and for others a feeling of confusion. What is this unknown and how do we deal with it? We’re being asked to really trust in this unknown future. But dropping in, and stopping the rat race is what we are all being asked to do right now, by source. Your source within you. The one that many of you lost touch with when placed here on this earth. Where do you come from? Who are you? Many of us would not be able to answer that question when asked. But they would be able to answer a bunch of trivial questions about trivial things. But the essential question “who are you” is one that many do not know the answer to. The answer is simple. You are love, you are source energy. Who are you? You are so and so and you are x years old. No.. who ARE you.. Has anyone ever really asked you that question? They have not.

I Am that I Am.

Moses asks what he is to say to the Israelites when they ask which God has sent him to them, and source replies, “I am that I am, ‘I am’ has sent me to you.” During these pandemic times more and more people are discovering that they are the I Am, that they just..are.. Being asked to slow down is a beautiful thing. A necessary phase that we all have to experience sometimes. An intuitive phase that many people often resist. 93838234_3976804045664905_6057127807010471936_nThey will deny themselves that they ARE the I Am presence. The presence and energy that is within every moment as long as you are present enough. They will numb themselves with so much stuff, so much multitasking, so many things to do and places to go and people to see, that they don’t see themselves.

In what aspects of life have you found that you have slowed down and how have you actually gained more from doing less?

why I said no to my dream job + surrendering to source and trusting the unknown

Once upon a time I was an art student and I studied art for 4 years. Art is what pulled me through adolescence and it was my way of dealing with the world. I graduated with a high school diploma in visual arts and the logical next step was to further art studies, I decided to study art history in college but gave up after a year and dove into my other passion, children, and I eventually ended up becoming an early childhood educator, working with kids in 3 different countries in schools and in a private setting. I’ve always has a soft spot for alternative school systems and Montessori type education. After lots of ups and downs and moving and traveling between Europe and the U.S. I ended up in Belgium again where I first started. I sent my own child to a school that was once on my list of dream schools to teach at, if I was ever gonna teach again it was gonna be there I told myself.

I had already stopped teaching years ago, life’s synchronicities started throwing arts & crafts at me again and I somehow rolled back into creating art. Fueled by the kundalini awakening I had experienced a few years ago, I now call myself an “intuitive artist”, I create spiritually inspired art, channeled art, I draw and paint energetic messengers so to speak, and am a channel for clients for their supporting energies to come through and deliver a message. And I create fiber-art infused with energetic frequencies. So when I caught wind of the news that my daughter’s school was looking for a new teacher for next year, initially I was super excited and saw this as my opportunity to work with children again.

This was several months ago and as the months passed… I kept on surrendering to source and trusting it, I have found myself offering more art, drawing more, creating more, channeling more, assisting people in their search for alignment with source, and finding myself utterly exstatic with the results of where this path is leading me, getting incredible feedback, feeling like for the first time I am really serving in the way I was supposed to. So in the back of my head I was wondering.. if I go down the road of teaching again.. is it in alignment with where I am supposed to go? And the intuitive answer was a clear “no”.

I’m going to work with children again. But in a different setting. Teaching and becoming a teacher has offered me the perfect foundation for a project that I am soon to introduce. I am still passionate about child education. But I can not not be truthful to who I am. Soon I will be offering a webinar geared towards moms (or dads) who want to raise their children in a spiritually awakened way. How to combine spirituality and develop oneself while being a good parent? How to teach your children about being in alignment with source and true to themselves and how to set an example and work on being an aligned parent and raise your children in such a way that they will become the new-earth citizens that our Gaia needs? That is something I will be talking about more in the future so stay tuned. That in combination with my art, is for now the path that source is putting me on. So even though I had to say no to what once was my absolute dream job, working in my dream school, as a teacher. I knew intuitively that it would make way for something even better for me personally. And after all, as lightworkers we are here to serve, and we have to trust the path and fully surrender to know that we will be led exactly to where we need to be.

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.

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!
