Are you living the life you came here to live? Are you giving ALL of yourself to this life? Or are you holding back?
When you put aside all the propaganda, conditioning and marketing that tells you who to be, how to be and how to live your life ...
What is it that is essentially you and that you are truly passionate about??
The corporate driven, capitalist culture of modern America, run by bankers and billionaire's tell me that to be successful I have to buy into their understanding of money, wealth, business and success. I have to look successful in a certain way. I have to "fake it til I make it" with this success attitude. That wealth looks like designer clothing and shoes and living in a huge 3-car garage house and driving a luxury car.
Because it was drilled into me that this is what success and wealth was, I was always, to some degree, striving for this or judging myself for not having created it yet. This was imprisoning my mind, heart and creativity. Believing in this dominant cultural illusion of success was distracting me and depleting me of my vital force.
What is success in my book? What is true wealth for me? I had to look in the mirror and get real with myself. "Stop judging people with lots of money, Maria... you don't even want that lifestyle! Get honest with yourself!"
What do I want??
Until each of us knows the answer to this question, we will not be free. We will be susceptible to propaganda and conditioning from the advertising industry.
I VALUE LIVING CLOSE TO THE EARTH.
I VALUE A SIMPLE HOME THAT MEETS EVERY NEED, YET IS STILL SMALL ENOUGH THAT I CAN TEND IT HEART-FULLY.
I VALUE MAKING MY OWN MEDICINES FROM WILD-CRAFTED HERBS.
I VALUE BEING NATURAL - WITH ARM PIT AND LEG HAIR, AND NO MAKE UP.
I VALUE VEHICLES THAT WORK TOWARDS PETROLEUM REDUCTION AND ELIMINATION.
I VALUE CIRCLES WITHIN CIRCLES OF COMMUNITY.
I VALUE NEIGHBORHOOD COMMUNITY GARDENS.
I VALUE COMMUNITY HEALING CEREMONIES.
I VALUE EVERYONE'S GIFTS BEING RECOGNIZED AND RESOURCED - WITH NO EXCHANGE OF "MONEY".
I VALUE MONEY. I VALUE THIS RESOURCE AS AN ALLY IN CHANGING THE WORLD! I RESPECT MONEY. BUT I DON'T VALUE IT MORE THAN ANY OTHER RESOURCE IN MY LIFE - SUCH AS RELATIONSHIPS, ECO-SYSTEMS, MY CONNECTION TO THE DIVINE...
I CALL ON MONEY AS ONE OF MY SUPPORTERS. I WORK WITH MONEY TO MANIFEST MY VISIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.
I HONOR THE POWER OF MONEY.
AND WHEN I DON'T RECOGNIZE THAT THE TRUE SOURCE OF WEALTH IS INSIDE ME; THAT I AM THE PRIMARY GENERATOR OF ABUNDANCE IN MY LIFE; THEN I TEND TO GIVE MONEY MORE POWER THAN IT SHOULD HAVE, AND MY LIFE CAREENS OFF TRACK...
I love my life. And part of my mission is to come into balance in all aspects of my life. Money has been a hard one for me. A real teacher. And I'll be honest...
In my ideal world, my vision for the future, there is no money. There is no need for it.
Similar to the stories Helena Norberg Hodge shared from her time living in Ladakh before globalization came in. Everyone was born into affluence of needs met - physically, spiritually and socially - with no banking systems... Just people giving generously of their gifts - all needs were met. When one got sick, the community tended to them. When one needed a home, the community built one for them. When one had a desire to learn a trade or craft, a mentor stepped up to teach them. This mirrors the ways of Nature. At the core of this community system is a KNOWING that all is provided for by Mother Earth and Community Love. Ladakh was systematically ravaged by globalization and these earth-based communities eventually dissolved, forcing people into apartment buildings in cities, forced to learn capitalist mindset. With no more initiations for the youth, they strayed away from self-value, and the shadow-ego was born in these beautiful people.
My soul brother Raymond, a former homeless client of mine when I was getting my psychotherapy hours, is back on the streets. I worked with him to get SSI, to get housing, to get into doctors appointments, to stay sober. He did everything he could to get his life together and everything was working for him. Then, last year things started falling apart. Yesterday I talked to him on the phone.
"Where are you staying?"
"Ahh... I'm outside..."
"No! Where are you sleeping?"
"Behind the Verizon in Santa Rosa...uh.. I don't mean to be rude, but I gotta go. There's a nice looking man coming out of the store and I'm gonna ask him for five dolla'. You know.. I gotta eat."
"OK, Love you Ray!"
I can't tell you how disappointed I am in the system.
That Ray, because he's on SSI, because he has no teeth, because he's illiterate - he has been turned down over and over again at low-income housing units.
His circle of friends are brainstorming to get him shelter... but here's what I want:
I WANT A PIECE OF LAND WITH A FARM AND COTTAGES AND A COMMUNAL HOUSE FOR THE HOMELESS!
Where they can grow their own food and get off drugs and alcohol and be tended to; psychologically and physically.
(This should be government funded. But I don't live in a country, currently, that values people lives. Human beings are expendable. Human hearts are value-less to the current shadow capitalist America.)
I AM AN ACTIVIST FOR THE RETURN OF THE WEB MIND! THE RETURN OF INDIGENOUS MIND! THE MOVING FORWARD INTO A NEW EARTH WHERE WE TAKE ALL THE TRAUMA OF THE PAST AND WEAVE IT INTO HEROINE STORIES TO INSPIRE US.
May we have the courage to be REAL!!
May we have the courage to loosen our grip on illusion and to live in the DREAM Of the DIVINE - not just our selfish little empire dreams, but the true dream where everyone and all of Nature is taken care of!
Thank you Great Mother and Divine Father, Holy ONE.
Some of you here today are about to get a lightening bolt that is going to catalyze you onto a whole new life path.
When the Great Mother comes in, as she is right now, She shows me what’s happening with everyone in the room. I feel and see the energetic leaks, limiting beliefs and patterns, the blocks… And I see destiny, your power, your Universal essence, and the reason you incarnated into this life.
I don’t try to do this.
Actually my connection to The Great Mother and my Higher Self happens through releasing the “trying”.
I have been a medium and a channel my whole life.
At age 22 I was initiated in South Dakota as a Sacred Pipe Carrier and recognized by my Lakota family as carrying power.
At age 39 I was initiated as a Priest of Yemoja (the great mother) in the Yoruba tradition from Africa. This was my first experience of full body mediumship.
I have worked with Indigenous medicine people from 15 different countries, since I was 19 years old. And that’s not counting receiving training from my dreams and my Grandparents up until that age.
I came from a very chaotic family life – with severe domestic abuse. I lived most of my life with post traumatic stress disorder. Yet, here I stand before you today, completely free of trauma.
I married my beautiful King, my compliment in every way, two years ago. We are about to move to Hawaii to found a Healing Center that was given to me in a vision when I was visiting John of God in Brazil. I founded a school called Sacred Future that trains students in stepping into Sacred Leadership, their Medicine Path.
It’s amazing to see where I came from and then to see my life today.
For me – all this had to be. It is my destiny to assist humanity in this time of Great Birthing. There are waves of people of all ages waking up into vaster levels of consciousness on the planet. This is happening for a reason! We are being called to service.
Though most of my life was very strange and sometimes very scary, today, because of these experiences I am able to help many many people who are opening to their powers.
I help people awaken to their power through deepening inner-trust and surrender to their own Higher Self. Becoming sovereign beings and with our Soul’s navigating fully our life paths.
There are levels of surrender. Not just one big surrender and your free of fear and suffering forever.
There are levels of surrender and at each level, a layer of the body-mind-emotions heals and comes into balance. Once this layer is integrated, there is another, deeper opportunity to surrender.
Can you relate?
So I’m going to surrender right now – and let the Great Mother speak to you and throw her lightening bolts...
Many of you have preconceived ideas about why you came here this weekend. I want to tell you that you were brought here. There is a key waiting here for you and perhaps you’ve already received it. This is the key to your elevation into the next level of your awakening.
There are some of you here, who are still resisting change and transformation, and you are reluctant to give up parts of your life, unhealthy relationships or negative behaviors. You still believe that you are not worthy of the ecstatic bliss of Divine Union with your Higher Soul Self.
I am here to tell you – That you are all worthy and there has never been a better and more vital time to open to your divinity!
I am here to tell you – That there is nothing you can do that is wrong. You are loved through and through and through and always surrounded by loving guides.
I am here to tell you that you are free and designed in all ways to be a co-creator with the Great Creator Source!
This is a very powerful time on the planet. As you face the very real experience of climate change, and the death throws of the Power-Over, Profit over People paradigm, your consciousness is being brought to the brink of transformation. You are taking a quantum leap.
Now more than ever, it is vitally important that you listen to the guidance of your Higher wisdom and act on it. You are all here to fulfill a destiny and a mission that you put into play before conception.
Now is the time to putting aside all distractions and lower self-serving behaviors and put the Highest Path of your life as your number one priority.
Yes! Much will change that isn’t already aligned with Truth, when you do this!
As you release what doesn’t serve you, you will land in more security and ease in your life.
Simply by prioritizing self-love and your higher calling
Your life will almost immediately have more pleasure, wealth, joy, ease, health, love and grace as your Higher Self commands, as it is aligned with you fulfilling your sacred mission here.
For we were born to create and live in paradise on Earth! But our abilities have laid dormant for thousands of years, until now.
Each in her or his own way, your power is coming online. Perhaps you’re having medicine dreams, ancestors visiting you, synchronicities, and strange invitations to spiritual rituals and ceremonies.
Now is the time to trust the guidance of your Higher Self and be willing to receive the gifts of the Mystery.
The Great Mother is the keeper of the Mysteries and she is Rising on the planet right now! All that was oppressed is unleashed onto the Earth now – All the power of SHE. Sexual Creative Power, the Powers in Nature, the Powers of the Multi-dimensional Shaman.
It is TIME to prioritize developing a clear and strong channel with your Higher Self.
How will you know it’s your Higher Self’s guidance and not your ego? They feel very different! The ego comes from small and narrow desires, immediate gratifications and fear. The Higher Self comes from the vast consciousness, a desire for all to be uplifted, Love, peace and bliss.
How do you work with the anxiety that will arise from the ego that is being taken out of the driver’s seat?
Trust me! These are questions I have been working with for 10 years and today I live 100% in surrender. I have many many tools and practices that have worked for me and my students and clients to continue to align completely with Higher Self.
First most important thing:
Open a channel in your being to connect with your Higher Self and keep that channel clear through daily practice of self-love.
Second most important thing: Make it the most important thing in your life to Trust Your Higher Self and Soul’s navigation of your life path.
Third most important thing: Take action on whatever your Higher Self tells you to do. No matter what. You are building a muscle of surrender and trust. The more you trust, the more the Universe will bring you miracles! The more your life will be a vehicle for blessing in people’s lives. The more pleasure and joy you’ll have in your life.
I know that every day is sacred. I know that my work is to help people open to their power and align with Universal Truth and Love! I know that together we are changing the world and creating a Sacred Future for future generations on this planet!
My students and clients experience transformations immediately in their lives when they start working with me. I can’t take credit for that. For those who work with me, I am a mirror. If they are struck by the truth vibration in my words, it’s because this truth was already known to them, and it’s waking up.
I want you to know that it’s not as illusive as you think.
We are at choice!
You can be free and fulfilled right now.
You can choose that.
If you are willing to trust.
