THE PLANETARY NEW YEAR AND LION'S GATE JULY/AUGUST 2017


Beloved Family of Light, you have now reached a time in your year of 2017 when great change is at hand.  We would call this the Great Shift of 2017.  Indeed, as we have said earlier, 2017 is the year of Sacred Planet Earth, and the year of New Beginnings.  The incoming Light Codes of the first half of 2017 have laid the seeds for the rising New Earth Consciousness to manifest on Earth.

We call this New Earth consciousness the “Unified Field” of Higher Consciousness.  It is the new and emerging field of Higher and Multi-dimensional consciousness that is coming into existence around the Planet to create the Multi-dimensional grids for the New Earth.  It is held in the Heart, Soul and Light Body of each person who has made the commitment to Higher Consciousness and Multi-dimensional living.  As these shining beings awaken, and come together, their radiant energy signatures and group energy signatures create the structural grids for the New Earth manifestation.
This is why it is so necessary for you to maintain your personal energy signature at a high frequency, and to come together with others who are at a similar frequency of Light and Consciousness, and to contribute to the emerging Unified Field of Higher Consciousness.
This emerging field has now reached the point where it is powerful enough to be the motivation for major shifts on the Earth.  The energies of July will build up to a climactic point in August at the Lion’s Gate and the Lunar and Solar Eclipses in Leo, especially the Total Solar Eclipse on the 21st of August.
This will be a fairly lengthy period of sustained intensity, and Beloved Ones, you will need to focus your intention into maintaining your inner Peace and Power as you pass through this period of challenge and testing as you bridge between the New and the Old in your lives.  Do not despair, do not fall into victim consciousness or anger, but allow yourselves to remain in that place of Trust and Flow.  It is not a time to be active and to try to make the changes.  It is rather a time to go within and surrender to a greater power, while allowing your self to flow into the changes with confidence and trust.
The Full Moon in Capricorn
The first major point of energy acceleration will be the Full Moon on July 9th.  This Full Moon falls in Capricorn, which is being strongly influenced by Pluto, also in Capricorn.  Pluto powers Transformation and, together with the powerful magnetic energies of the Full Moon, will be an agent for bringing up very deep feelings and emotions for transformation and clearing.  Allow these to come to the surface to be released and move away.  Do not hold onto them or feel despair or guilt.  Just simply release them and let them go, very gently.  In the old energy you would work very hard to process such feelings and put much energy into finding out the reasons for such feelings. In this new multi-dimensional energy, it is enough to simply recognize what arises, and let it go with love, knowing that you no longer need to wrestle with such feelings and emotions.  It is enough to let them flow away as you focus on where you are in the present moment and what you desire to create.
Indeed, the Full Moon will be a time when many old patterns will finally be released to make place for the New Earth templates of perception and expression on the Planet.  It will be a time when you will need to fully grasp the concept of Multi-dimensional living, and be able to recognize frequency and vibration, and make the choice to anchor your own personal vibrational frequency or Energy Signature, in the New Earth energies.
You may need to spend time in the lower frequencies of the old energies because of your work or family, but you can see these times as “temporary visits” before you return to the higher frequencies where you are most comfortable.  Many of you may still be in the role of “bridging” between the levels of frequency, in order to assist those who are yet to awaken and cross over to the New Earth frequencies.
Beloved Ones, even if you have to experience the chaos and fear/anger around you at times, remember that you are Warriors of the Heart and Embodied Masters of Light, and that the Love and Radiance in your Heart and Soul will protect you and open pathways of Abundance, Harmony and Joy in your lives as you express the Unified Field of Higher Consciousness.
The Sirius Effect : When Two Suns Rise
 The next major energy acceleration will be the Planetary New Year on the 26th of July.  This date was known, to the Ancient Mayans and the Ancient Egyptians, as the moment when Planet Earth begins a new cycle in her ongoing evolution.
This is preceded by the “Day out of Time” which falls on the 25th of July.  The 25th is a Magical and Sacred “womb space” where transformation from one time cycle to another is birthed.  It is a time to be joyful and creative as you lay the foundations for your New Year cycle at the highest level possible. This creative and festive energy will carry you into the 26th when the Planet and all living beings will begin a new personal cycle of creation and being.
For the Ancient Egyptians, this time was marked by an annual event called the “heliacal rising of Sirius”.  This is the time when Sirius rises in the morning sky right next to the Sun.  It was also the time in the Egyptian calendar when the Nile would rise and flood the lands bringing fertility and abundance to the people.  In addition, Sirius was also known as the Sacred Teacher Star, and when its powerful Light Codes aligned with the Sun they were transmitted to the Earth through the annual Lion’s Gate portal.  The Lion’s Gate portal begins to open on the 26th of July and reaches its climax on the 8th of August as the 8/8.  This is the powerful time of the “Two Suns”, one Golden White (the Sun of Earth) and one Electric Blue (Sirius).  The Diamond Light Codes that carry the patterns and templates for the next spiral of time are transmitted from the Galactic Center and amplified by Sirius as they are integrated into the Earth Planetary Time Cycles.
 The Lion’s Gate  : 8  August 2017
 So, Beloved Ones, you can see that the climactic points of this series of energy alignments and accelerations will be the Lion’s Gate on the 8th of August and the two Eclipses in Leo of August of 2017.
The Lion’s Gate is a powerful portal in Leo that is under the guardianship of the Royal Spirit Lions of Sirius.  These Magnificent Beings of Light, known as the Lions of Yesterday and Tomorrow, hold the Sacred Space for the New Light Codes and Evolutionary Templates to descend to Earth and to activate the grids and Light Bodies of all who are receptive to lifting their evolution to a higher spiral of Consciousness.
It is very necessary to keep your personal consciousness and energy signature at a high level at this time. And to take full advantage of the flow of Divine Light and Blessings in the incoming new Diamond Light Codes.  Do bot allow any events to pull you down into lower levels of consciousness such as anger, fear and anxiety.
This is indeed the time of the Great Shift of 2017, and you need to remember that you are a Light Warrior and an embodied Master of Light.  It is your work to hold these energies in your Energy Signature, so that the new Light Codes may enter and be grounded, through you, for the benefit of Humanity and the Planet.
 The Eclipses of 7th and 21st August
The Lion’s Gate portal closes on the 12th of August.  However, the energy will continue to be intense through the month of August, and will be amplified and augmented by the two Eclipses in Leo.
 On the New Moon in Leo on the 7th of August, the day before the Lion’s Gate, there will be a partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius (Sun in Leo).  This will create the space for further empowerment of the Goddess energy on the Planet. In February of 2017, there was an annular lunar eclipse in Leo (Sun in Aquarius), that initiated this powerful flow of Diamond Energy to the Earth as part of the Rising of the Goddess/Divine Feminine energy on the Earth.
In this year of 2017, you will become more aware of the rising power of the Divine Feminine, as the Right Brain energies of Creativity and Compassion become more clearly active.  There will be increased opportunity for the emerging Unified Field of Higher Consciousness to be expressed through the Divine Feminine energies.
The Total Solar Eclipse on the 21st of August completes the cycle of eclipses for 2017. The Total Solar Eclipse in Leo ensures that the New Planetary Codes, initiated by the Royal Sirian Star Lions, are integrated into the Planetary Grids.
At this time, the cumulative energies of shift and change will have provided the major impetus for significant change on Earth.  As a Fire Energy, the Leonine energy will burn away and transform everything that is not in alignment with the Diamond Light Codes of the New Reality.
From this point forward, the emphasis will be on new ways of living and perception.  The old ways will continue to be challenged by the rising energies of the New Earth. The power of the emerging field of Unified Consciousness will transform and change, making space for the New Reality on Earth.

7 Julia Cameron Quotes to awaken your Inner Artist


“I’d love to do that, but I’m not creative.”

I hear this all the time, and it makes me sad. The idea that each of us is either artistic or not artistic is outdated, inaccurate, and unhealthy.
The capacity to create exists within each of us. We only need to accept it, open ourselves to it, and create.
I recently met an accountant who was writing a novel. A friend of mine, who is studying medicine, writes poetry. I have several friends who are brilliant at math, and also play the guitar, write songs, and paint. A friend of my sisters, an engineer, is also an incredible actor.
My hero, Julia Cameron, also believes that everyone is an artist. In her book The Artist’s Way she guides the reader in accessing and nurturing their inner artist.

These are some of my favorite quotes from The Artist’s Way.

1. “We are far more colorful, far more creative, and far more charismatic than we know.”
We often underestimate or depreciate ourselves. Many of us never begin creating because we believe that we don’t have anything to say, or that we won’t say it well.
Our inner critic tells us that we are boring, untalented, awkward, and not good enough.

But we can counter this by consistently affirming the opposite. Declaring or writing personal, specific, and positive affirmations or mantras such as “I am creative,” “I am interesting,” or “I am good enough” affirm these truths within us. This moves us through self-doubt into confidence.
Through affirmations, I found the self-assurance to speak at open mic events and submit my writings to publications.
2. “Creating does move us on.”
You cannot create and remain stagnant. A day at a time, a creation at a time, you enter art and enter the flow of life. You are able to ride out the rapids of your life, and the quieter waters as well.
Art gives you both a place to rest and a vehicle in which to move forward.
Creating has a magical way of carrying us through struggles and tribulations that we might otherwise have gotten hung-up on or even stuck in.
Whenever I feel stuck or frustrated, I journal, write a poem, or tinker around on my ukulele. Before I know it, inspiration or insight has come quietly to mind. Making art has helped me fight depression, forgive people I thought I’d hate forever, break bad habits, and make big decisions.
3. “With art, we surrender to being more truly ourselves, and those selves are colorful and beautiful.”
When we create, our inner creative force gently clears away that which is not us to reveal our true selves.
Through creating art, we discover our buried desires, forgotten hobbies, repressed dreams, and neglected interests.
When I began writing more often, I noticed my dress style changing, my goals for the future becoming more defined, and my relationships deepening.
4. “By seeking the creator within and embracing our own gift of creativity, we learn to be spiritual in this world, to trust that the universe is good and so are we and so is all of creation.” 
Creativity cultivates this positivity and love within us.
When we actively and consistently engage with creativity, our eyes open to the good in this world—from the simple delight of wildflowers and random acts of kindness, to our own inner goodness.
5. “The artist’s language is a sensual one, a language of felt experience. When we work at our art, we dip into the well of our experience and scoop out images.”
Life is experience, and art is expression of experience.
Each of us, no matter who we are, reads, sees, hears, thinks, feels, and participates in things. This is why every single one of us can express ourselves by drawing from our own inner well.
It does not need to be Picasso or Hemingway or Lennon. It needs only be true to our own unique experience.
6. “When we meet our creativity, we meet ourselves, and that encounter happens in the moment.”
We cannot hear creativity’s ideas or suggestions when our thoughts are in a hundred different places.
To engage with it, we need to engage with the moment—whether we’re cooking, driving, daydreaming, hiking, or doing absolutely nothing at all. As long as we are doing it with the whole of our awareness, we are open to creativity.
7. “Remember that in order to recover as an artist, you must be willing to be a bad artist. Give yourself permission to be a beginner. By being willing to be a bad artist, you have a chance to be an artist, and perhaps, over time, a very good one.”
We often expect ourselves to be perfect at everything we try. I gave up on calligraphy before even giving myself a chance because, after a few failed attempts, I declared myself “bad at it.”
We need to remind ourselves that beginners are, by nature, bad. I was once bad at my job, bad at cooking, and bad at socializing.
But I allowed myself to be bad at these things while continuing to work at improving. In this way, I got good at them. Creativity is no different.
I hope that these quotes have inspired your inner artists, and that you go on to create wonderful things.

Is There a Difference Between the Spirit and the Soul?


Fear not those who can kill your body,
Fear those who can destroy your very soul!

Thomas Moore had some great things to say about the difference between the human soul and the human spirit in his interview with Oprah. He spoke about the movement of the spirit and the attachment of the soul. This is a great way of distinguishing the difference between our experience of soul and spirit. Why would we want to do that you might ask? My reason for wanting to do it is so that I have more control of my responses to life.
Attachment, while giving me security, can also be painful. Movement gives me the experience of freedom. When I am aware of my inner attachment and movement then I can work out how to move from being attached to feeling free. Although, the feeling of attachment, as Thomas says, gives us a sense of where we belong, of our family, friends, and colleagues, but at the same time, we must admit that strong attachment can bring pain.
Not that pain is a bad thing, it certainly has its place in making us stronger, but being aware of the patterns of attachment and freedom mean that we are more self-aware. I know that if I become too attached to an idea that doesn’t work, or a person I have outgrown, then I have to go through a stressful separation. I have experienced relief from this stress through the movement of my spirit. This usually arises when I see the possibility of a new idea, a new friend, or a new opportunity.
In many of my blogs and books I talk about the ancient Greek language used to write the New Testament. I have discovered the importance of identifying the specific words for spirit — pneuma, soul — psuche, and body — soma or bios, which can be translated wrongly. We are so aware of our body and the way it is in touch with the outside world that there is a tendency to think that we are only physical beings. The translation of sacred texts comes into question when the word body is used instead of soul or spirit. The translators may not have been aware of the difference it makes to speak of the soul or the spirit.
This takes on more meaning if we consider that our spirit and soul use our body, bios, our biology, as a means of expression. Compare this to a motor vehicle: The driver is the spirit, the engine equates to the soul, all working through the body of the vehicle. We know that a vehicle isn’t of much use without an engine and a driver.
This leaves us asking how we can be more aware of our soul and spirit. The best place to start is to think about how we connect to the outside world. The outside world enters into us through our senses. All that we see, hear, and feel enters into our soul and there we make sense of what is outside us. If the impulse is familiar, we quickly work out what it is, but if we see or hear something for the first time, it can take some time to figure out what it is.
A good illustration of this is a story about Charles Darwin’s voyage to South America. They anchored the ship, the Beagle, and went ashore. It was a large ship, larger than the natives had ever experienced before. A sailor asked a native what he thought about his ship and the native replied through the interpreter, “What ship? All I see is a large bird out on the water.”
I often think about this story to help me become aware of the activity of my soul; I see something, then I think about it, giving it personal meaning, and then I can act on what I saw, or decide to not to do anything. This is what happens in my soul. As Thomas Moore says, we do this with attachment. We all have certain feelings and thoughts about things, and we have particular patterns of behavior. This comes up in relationships with our friends and family. “Oh, dad won’t like that.” Or, “What will mum think of that?” “My husband/wife/friend won’t be happy when I tell them about that.”
If we can overcome our initial reaction to situations, detaching from our habitual responses, then the movement of our spirit assists us to be more accepting of another person’s behaviour. The movement of our spirit opens us to the future. The spirit moves in our soul, making it more mobile and pliable. Through our spirit, we can change, releasing ourselves from past patterns that hold us back. Those who allow this movement of the spirit within their soul are usually more content with life, more inspiring, accepting change and changing themselves to meet the future.

“Commit to a Personal Process”



You are now stridently moving forward as you have moved into the depth of your heart to know who you are. Some of you are beginning to look at the talents and gifts you have discovered, and beginning to stridently move forward into the unknown. You are now being met with and entertaining new energies. And as you stridently move forward leaving much of the old behind you are beginning to shift and change in the physical and your physical body is doing the same.



You are now leaving behind the conditioning, what you have learned and your beliefs that reside in your mental body, your mind. And as you have moved through the two processes we have given you, “Who are you?” and “Why you are Here” you have just begun to understand them in your mind. When this happens and you understand it there, you will then shift from your mind and into your heart so you can understand it and embody it there. Knowing who you are in your mind is the first part of the process, after that you then move to the knowingness of it in your heart to embed it there and is the second part. As you move into the knowingness, understanding it in your heart, it will then shift into the physical body. When this happens you will move into areas of the physical body where memories are stored that relate to aspects of your wounding and held old paradigms, habits, patterns and rituals in place.As you have set the intention to shift from old habits, patterns and rituals and into the new, you are now beginning to do so. Some of you in various areas of your life are seeing these old habits, patterns and rituals for what they are and beginning to shift them. You then begin to form a new way of being. We now focus on “Who You Are” at this time because you are just beginning to know who you are and in that process.




Here is an explanation of how the information comes to you and what happens when it does. When it comes to you it first moves into the mental body. As you understand it in your mind it then moves to your heart. You then, move into your heart to understand who you are there, and do so by taking ownership of you. You can see this now in your life by looking at that one person whom you have affected in your life and why We gave you that exercise.




See how you have affected others and stand in that power to know who you are. As you embody this you then own it. And now that you know it in the depth of your heart the next step is shifting and releasing the old memories from your physical body. This is where you are now.You are now beginning to tap into old memories in your physical body so they can be released and essentially be gone and no longer exist. You then can move into your heart and simply be who you are. As you understand who you are in your mind and then know it in your heart you move from there to being it. But before you can fully “be it” you must release the old memories in your physical body and many of you are now moving through this. Encountering the old and being challenged by it relating to who you are. This is where stating your needs and setting your boundaries come into play.




As you move through this process flu-like symptoms will surface and you will feel in parts of your body resistance and pain. You will be releasing an inordinate amount of energy from parts of your body and feel as if you are having “hot flashes” or “cold sweats”.This is all because you are moving into the old memories and releasing them. With this you just might move into “blind spots” and forget where you are in the moment and quite possibly react outside of you. This is where many of you are at this time so it is most important that you utilize your tools and in every moment and ask, where am I? Where am I in this moment now that it feels as if my physical body is “discombobulated” or for some of you disintegrating? This in many ways is what is happening.




You are moving into old memories in areas of the physical body and specific memories and downloads in the DNA are coming to the fore. In congruence with this, feelings that you have for so long resisted and avoided are also coming to the fore. These feelings are far more deeper than you have ever known and now not so sure what is happening because as you have moved to the core of your heart. Some of you are moving through old aspects of your defense pattern where for example you will indulge the feelings and or will sink into them. Many of you see yourself doing this and are now conscious of it. This is the difference and the growth and where you are.




You know what you are doing and in some cases you are reaching out asking for guidance and support. You know full well that where you are is where you should be. You are at a release point.




We have asked you this. Is your intention to move to higher levels of resonance and vibration within you? And move on the pathway in the unknown to reach “the intersection”? The intersection is where you will reach when you have moved through the process and will connect with the soul fragment’s divine plan. Is this your intention? If it is, be ready to move into the depth of the core wound so you can fully release the memory in the physical body then take next step. That step is where the nervous system will entrain to “the new”. And this is where the depth of fear of the unknown will surface. After you release the memories from the physical body all there will be is unknown because you have released what is known or what you knew which this is the memory. Once the memories are released you are in the unknown. The nervous system then will begin to entrain to the new and this is where the depth of fear of that unknown will surface. Many of you will describe it as feeling out of control however you will be out of control because you are never in control of anything.




This is the process and where you are at this time. You can now begin to utilize your tools through the exercises We have given you in the “Who Are You?” series.

Channeled Message - Restoring Your Natural Conversation with the Creator...

Are Fallen Angels in Congress?


By Dr. Helen D. Wix, Spiritual Networks
Last week, Mika Brzezinski on “Morning Joe” used the D-word – dictatorship. She used dictatorship in connection with President Donald J. Trump, and where he seems to be trying to take this country. I am not surprised.
When I was homeless (and thank God I’m not homeless anymore!), I learned that the homeless industrial complex is nothing more than an extension of the prison industrial complex which is an extension of the former slavery system. As I began to speak out about what I saw and experienced while homeless, I was appalled at the indifference of people. I believe that we are all one and what happens to one of us happens to all of us. Now ALL of us are in danger of losing our freedom.
The only way we are going to get out of this mess we have all created is to wake up and realize that this is a spiritual problem. Spiritual problems can only be solved with spiritual solutions. Trying to use physical solutions for spiritual problems is like taking a gun and trying to shoot a ghost. It will never work!
It is time for us to understand what is truly going on here! Origen of Alexandria was a theologian of the Greek Church in the early sixth century. He believed something so outlandish that certain teachings of his were banned. “Origen is also quoted as believing that these spirits who fell were those ‘in whom the divine love had grown cold’ and states that these could have been ‘hidden in gross bodies such as ours, and have been called men. In that statement, Origen evinces the belief that certain men are actually the embodiment of wicked angels.” (from pp. 365, 368 of Fallen Angels and the Origins of Evil: Why Church Fathers Suppressed the Book of Enoch and Its Startling Revelations by Elizabeth Clare Prophet)
Do you remember Q on “Star Trek: The Next Generation”? There was an episode where Q lost his supernatural powers and became a mere mortal. That is what happened to the fallen angels of the Bible. They became men (or women). But not just any men! Men of power and prestige! Men whose “divine love” has “grown cold”!
Why am I bringing this up? What if some of the men and women in Congress, corporations, churches, education, Hollywood and every other industry that affects our lives were these fallen angels? Would it not make sense? It would explain why they are trying to destroy us and the planet, and take away our freedoms! They are cruel and heartless! Just look at the latest healthcare bills! They could care less about us!
These fallen angels in human bodies are now being exposed in the time of the harvest of the wheat and tares (Matthew 13:24-30) Open your eyes! See the truth! Are we just sitting ducks? Hardly! We are more powerful than we believe! These fallen angels in human form on this planet want us to believe that we are helpless. But we have the power of our voice and mind.
So, what can you and I do to break free from their corrupt influence, take back our planet and create a peaceful, loving world that works for everyone? Use the power of your voice to invoke the Violet Flame. As I said before, this is a spiritual problem which needs a spiritual solution and the Violet Flame is one of those spiritual solutions!
What is the Violet Flame? It is “the seventh ray aspect of the Holy Spirit and sacred fire that transmutes the cause, effect, record, and memory of negative karma. “This gift to humanity is also called the flame of transmutation, freedom and forgiveness,” says the website ascension-research.org.
By using the Violet Flame every day, you and I have the power to transmute the negative karma that we personally have created as well as the planetary karma that these fallen angels have also helped us create. Only then will we be able to create Heaven on Earth.
Violet Flame Decree
Please repeat these words daily:
“In the name of my Mighty
I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self,
I AM a being of violet fire!
I AM the purity God desires!
My heart is alive with violet fire!
My heart is the purity God desires!
My family is enfolded in violet fire!
My family is the purity God desires!
Earth is a planet of violet fire!
Earth is the purity God desires!
(p. 323 from Fallen Angels Among Us: What You Need to Know by Elizabeth Clare Prophet)
Watch this video to see how freedom is under attack for other Americans. If it happens to one of us, it’s happening to all of us. Get your Kleenex ready! http://tinyurl.com/y89kbzaj

Praying by Kesha
Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you've done
I can thank you for how strong I have become
'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is I wish you farewell
I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying
I'm proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
'Cause I can make it on my own
And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known
I've been thrown out, I've been burned
When I'm finished, they won't even know your name
You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is I wish you farewell
I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying
Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night
Someday, maybe you'll see the light
Oh, sometime, in life, you're gonna get what you give
But some things, only God can forgive
I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying

The Sirius StarGate: July 3-7 |Intuitive Astrology

IN LOVE WE TRUST



HONOR AND VALUE YOU

Building trust in yourself requires that you honor and value you. So we ask you:

      . How do you feel about you?

      . What do you honor and value about you?

      . What is it about your gifts and talents that have meaning and value?

      . What do you do to love you, to give support to your highest good?

      . What are you giving to you so you can be you?

      . What keeps you looking outside of you for validation and gratification?

Many of you are still looking outside of yourselves for confirmation that who you are and what you are doing are acceptable and worthwhile.

MIRROR EXERCISE

PART ONE

The mirror exercise reveals deeper aspects of who you are. As you look at your reflection, thoughts and feelings may surface revealing how you have been conditioned.

Close your eyes. Imagine walking down a pathway into your heart and resting comfortably in you. 

When you get to this place, breathe deeply three times as follows: 

Hold the breath for five seconds.

Release the breath through the throat and mouth with the strong sound of ahhhhh.

After the third time, become fully present, open your eyes, and do the following mirror exercise:

PART TWO

The mirror exercise is best done in the nude. Do this exercise several times during the next week.

1. Stand naked in front of a mirror. Look directly into your eyes for five seconds. Then spend several seconds scanning your body from head to toe. Repeat the breathing exercise.

      Looking in your eyes, ask:

      . Who am I?

      . What am I feeling at this moment?

      . What is it about me that I love?

      . What is it about me that I am still shaming and judging?

      . Can I accept my feelings and have compassion for myself?

      . Am I ready to live my life for me?

2. At the end of this exercise, write down what you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror naked.

      Many of you may react to this exercise with fear.

      Many of you may respond with shame and judgment.

      Others of you may enjoy looking at yourselves.

      Be with the feelings that come up.

3. Each day after you do this exercise, write down what you shame and judge about yourself and how you feel about it. Make a separate list.

      Ask: 

      . Who is judging and shaming me?

      . Who is not seeing my divine essence?

      . Can I accept where I am and where I shame and judge myself?

4. Negative thoughts that shame and judge you are products of your conditioning, what you have been taught. Consider your answers to the above questions. Then ask:

      . Whose voices are these?

      . What did they teach me?

      . Do these teachings resonate for me now?

      . Can I accept with compassion where I am in this moment?

      . How has my conditioning influenced the relationship I am having with my self?

      . How has my relationship with my self influenced my relationships with others?

It is important to use the mirror exercise whenever you shame or judge yourself. It will help you move away from the influences of negative conditioning and will be the jumping-off point for moving toward the life you say you want.

PART THREE

The mirror exercise helps you move to new depths of intimacy within so that you can begin to receive love from yourself.

A good place to begin receiving love from yourself is to begin giving love to your inner wounded child.

. Close your eyes, move into your heart, and imagine your inner wounded child.

. When the child comes to you, look in the child’s eyes for a few moments and be with your feelings.

. Ask your inner child, “What do you need in this moment?”

. After the child answers, ask yourself, “Do I love this child enough to give the child what it needs in this moment?

This is your opportunity to begin healing your inner child by giving you the love your inner child needs.

. Begin to give and receive love from you.

At your next group sharing, share your experience with the mirror exercise, what you learned, and how the experience made you feel.We are leading you to trust that:

. You, fully exposed, are good enough just the way you are.
    
. The answers to what you need are inside you. Begin giving to yourself what you need.
