Another Reading for Mother Earth, What about plastic?

Tarot Card Reading for Mother Earth, I pulled 3 cards for each question.

On August 14, 2019 I had the opportunity to sit down with Solzana.com and get a Tarot Card reading for Mother Earth. I really appreciate Solzana.com for doing this reading. The first question was, “What is Mother Earth trying to teach us?

The next question I asked was regarding the excessive amount of plastic that is currently filling up the landfills and the fact that other countries are no longer taking the plastic from the USA. There is already so much trash all over the oceans and in the landfills. There is no such place as away. What are we going to do about this plastic situation?

Cards I pulled for question about what to do with all the plastic on planet.

I picked 3 cards again and Mayra of Solzana.com indicated that there are going to be new individuals on earth that are going to be very enlightened and intellectual that are going to find and create new resources that will create resources that can be absorbed be the Mother Earth. These people will develop new products but what we have now we will have to deal with what we already have (there is a solution for this here). We will be victorious and they will be very passionate individuals and everyone will be rejoicing because this is a card of celebration. (PS here is the answer for plastic.)

Judgement is that it is what it is and we will have to deal with what’s already here. We will have to deal with this mess until it is cleaned up. It’s not just the plastic it’s the radiation from prior nuclear meltdowns. We have to live with this because it won’t disappear automatically. But it will come to an end. There will be new ideas but we have to deal with what we already have created. But it will come to an end.

This is something good to focus on. This is our beautiful world. Let’s clean it up because who likes a big mess?

There’s a lot of political things going on with plastic and it has to do with money and people that are greedy might hinder our progress. There are those people and it’s about the money but that’s why it’s going to take time before it can be removed from our products. But it will come to an end. But with the new people it will be more about having a healthy place to live.

Again I really want to thank SolzanaHealing.com for doing this reading. It was a great reading and There is still more questions to be answered. Stay tuned for the next question and answer. I highly recommend Solzana.com. She’s very kind and just makes you feel awesome!! Did you know she’s a Reiki Master too? Don’t be afraid to reach out and say hello. It costs nothing to say hi.

Tarot Reading For Mother Earth

Feel excitement for the reading

Solzana Healing did a reading for Mother Earth.

With everything that has been going on with the planet I felt like it was important to have a reading for Mother Earth to see how best to go about healing her. Recently I had the opportunity meet up with Mayra of Solzana Healing. I asked her if she would be willing to do a tarot reading for Mother Earth and if I could publish the reading here. She agreed right away.

The reading occurred on August 14, 2019 in Northern California. Mayra’s room where she does her readings is very beautiful with crystals and it has a very positive energy to it. The first thing she did was ask me to shuffle the tarot cards with the focus on Mother Earth. I just kept thinking positive loving thoughts towards Mother Earth.

Question 1: What is Mother Earth trying to tell us?

I picked 3 cards and handed them Face down to her. The first card was the 2 of Swords.

Mother Earth is showing that she is in the battle and it’s the battle between man and nature. Mother Earth is in a state of who’s going to win this battle and who is going to dictate my future. The Earth is waiting to see what society and government is going to do. We are fighting amongst each other. Mother Earth is waiting for that battle to end. People will open their eyes to this reality and it will awaken them to know they need to show more love to nature. People are going to awaken in a spiritual sense that this Earth is not just what you see but different dimensions. It will awaken us to be in tuned to Mother Earth because she is more than a material object but a spirit.

Ace of Cups represents the spirituality. It will awaken us to our origination such as the Ancient Maya and Inca’s to the Egyptians to where they were in touch with the balance of nature. To the Egyptians Earth Wind and Fire were all Gods. and they respected Mother Earth and we are going to awaken and things will adjust and decisions will be made based on taking care of Mother Earth because this is our home. You don’t pollute your own home. You take care of it because that’s where you live. Mother Earth will love us back and there will be balance.

The next card was the 2 of swords which means that there is a battle between man and nature and Mother Nature doesn’t know who is going to win. She has no power over what we decide.

But because there is an Ace Of Cups it means that it is a positive result and it is a new beginning. It’s going to be nourishing. Mother Earth will repair itself. (Valeria likes this.) This is the hope card.

The Hierophant the things that will help will be to have laws passed so we can manage it. We need to have laws put into place to manage the people. It’s going to be an international effort. There will be a decision made world wide so that we can really clean up Mother Earth.

There will be a great awakening and because we are opening ourselves to being more spiritual there will be more advances in technology. The children that will be born in this enlightened era will be and will come enlightened onto earth and the will be able to come up with new forms of technology that will not harm the earth.

Thanks baby for saving us!!

It’s either the children now or their children will be the enlightened group that will come and create all of the changes that will clean up Mother Earth.It is about enlightenment.

Interview with a Psychic

Chakra-locations

I first met Mayra at a Health and Wellness Fair in the North San Francisco Bay Area.  She gave me the most amazing Tarot Card reading.  The absolute best I’ve ever had.  Let’s just say December is going to be the most amazing month.

She went to San Jose State and majored in marketing.  When I saw her booth set up, it made complete sense because her booth was so inviting. It had some beautiful soft fluffy blankets and some plush cushions.

After she graduated, she did the usual of working very hard to climb the corporate ladder.  But she was finding things very difficult and she decided to quit her job and move back home as she felt very lost.  This was a difficult time when the unthinkable happened. A dear close relative ended up with a life threatening disease and she was actually able to assist her mother who was at Reiki II practitioner at the time.

Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with Mayra a Clairvoyant  who is also a Blue Lotus Reiki Master/Teacher  and Medium who also does Tarot and Card and Oracle readings at https://www.solzana.com.   She is a Clairvoyant who like most healers began with the realization of self healing.  She had gone to a workshop called Meet your Angel at The Mystic Dream in Walnut Creek, CA and she went into a deep meditation and met her Arch Angel Michael.  He showed her that her hands were filled with light and that’s when her journey to Reiki began.

I asked Mayra since she’s a Clairvoyant, how does she get her messages?  She said usually it is not like a picture but it is through her third eye or mind’s eye she is able to have recurring thoughts or visions of different things.  And the thought will repeat in her mind and that’s how she is able to give her reading.  She has the benefit of speaking with the Spirits so she can hear them, she can see them which means that they convey images or colors and then she translates it to what makes sense.

ajna

 

I asked Mayra if she’s ever experienced synchronicity.  She said yes that everything she does is like being guided by the Universe.   When on the wrong path, everything becomes very difficult.  She has to work very hard at whatever it is she is trying to do. Whether it be a job or a relationship.  When you are on the right path everything is facilitated for us.  Things tend to flow smoothly and you have a huge sense that you are on the right path.

She indicated she was coping with illness of a family member and she was reevaluating her life as she felt lost.   While going through this difficult time she read the book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho  It says that things will happen smoothly when you are following your path.  When she read that book she felt extremely lost and didn’t know what to do.  She was trying to force her life into what life expects of you. It’s a story of a guy is traveling the world and he noticed that whenever he’s going against his path or journey it’s harder.  And when he goes into the right direction everything just becomes easier and falls into place.  Mayra learned that family is the most important and that we must value and live each day sit could be your last.

Now she she’s doing her passion, everything is so much easier. For questions you can contact Mayra and she offers services in Tarot and Oracle Card Readings, Reiki, chakra balancing and House/Business blessings and atonement for all levels of Reiki but the most important thing is to find somebody that you are comfortable with.

Mayra advises that if you go to a mystical shop and they have free sessions, go try the free sessions.  See what you feel comfortable with.  Do you feel comfortable with these teachings and this practice.  She welcomes anyone to email her through her website or a phone conversation when she’s available.    There are so many different healing methods and she wants her clients to feel comfortable with her and healing process and their own journey.  You can email here at Solzanahealing@gmail.com.

This was a very informative interview for me and if you want to meet Mayra, she will be facilitating  a Reiki Share event in Vacaville, CA at Bounty Books on September 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM.  Space is limited and you may contact Bounty Books directly for more information.

Is There A Key to Having A Spiritual Awakening?

Is There A Key to Having A Spiritual Awakening

Cover Photo By Greg Rakozy

There are many paths to a spiritual awakening. Near Death Experiences are in the news and on many book shelves. People are finding other realms with spiritual teachers, drugs, in nature, with music, drumming, dance, or chanting. Others find an experience of their own divinity in extreme sports, life crises, or in the course of losing a loved one. People can find awakening while gardening, parenting, and caring for the less fortunate. People report experiences of spiritual awakening in dreams, meditation, heart full prayer, or simply just being very present in the moment. There seem to be many avenues to a spiritual awakening but they all have one thing in common.

What is common to all spiritual awakening is when we get out of our normal mental world, our awareness finds something greater. At the time we think it is the near death experience, drug, extreme sport, music, nature, or sudden life crises that is the cause of our awakening. But with further exploration we begin to understand it is when our awareness is set free of the routine busy-ness, when we drop the mental baggage we are carrying, we discover another part of ourselves. All the different paths towards a spiritual awakening seem to suggest it is not the activity itself, it is not what we do that counts. It is what is happening within us that is important. The particular path towards spiritual awakening is an impulse to something very deep and integral to our essential self, our higher self, to God inside of us.

Indeed each spiritual awakening has many common details no matter what stimulated the experience. We find a very present love or light which is more real then real. Beyond words, this love or light is not observed, thought about, or imagined but is literal, directly present. In these moments our awareness is the light. We are the love. It is who we really are. There is an ever growing vastness, a border-less experience beyond our mind, beyond our body, seemingly spreading forever. In this expansive realm there is only heart that is mysteriously deep inside our heart. And this heart lives forever. Eternity is very real . The spiritual awakening is an experience of our infinite being. There is literally a home for each of us that we recognize and return to.

Many who have these experiences don’t really want to talk about it. We hide the experience from ourselves and others. Not wanting to receive what is really happening, not wanting to sound different in our judgmental world, many experiences of spiritual awakening sit within people for years yet never go away. A spiritual awakening is too real to put aside, forget, and move on from. It is always a part of us.

No matter how we arrive at the spiritual awakening we feel changed. Our personality, likes and dislikes, our personal story, our material needs, everything is seen differently. There is something more. Our spiritual awakening has given us a glimpse into another realm into another world. Who am I?

This glimpse into something so freeing from life’s challenges, we naturally want to experience more. We want to live in the awakening. We want to be this love, light. We want to return to this incredible peace. But despite our experience being so significant, our old personality, habits, daily story stands between us and being fully awakened. Our personality and all its wishes to be comfortable and in control resumes. We yearn for being home again in the vastness while finding ourselves living with the same old home, with the same old furniture, with the same old dishes and floor needing a good cleaning.

What all the different paths toward an awakening experience have in common is that when our normal mental life is turned off or down, the awareness of the heart of life is dramatically much higher. People who have a Near Death Experience literally have their mental life turned off. Maybe this is why their awakening experience is often so totally vivid, other worldly, and life changing. In all experiences of awakening another part of us comes forward. In the awakening experience life itself is brilliantly present. In this moment we know that life continues beyond the body. There is no thought or feeling to the contrary. In fact when we are in the awakening experience there are no thoughts, no feelings, the experience itself fills our awareness, totally. There is nothing else.

Many people who have experiences of spiritual awakening after coming back into their life story feel as if they are two people. There is the everyday life and there is the spiritual awakening. The two realities feel so far apart, separate. We don’t realize the key to being one person is becoming free of our overly mental world which has resulted in us sacrificing our hearts. Our constant thoughts are a heavy filter standing between us and the light. Our mental life filters the pure love in our heart to little or no love.

We are not two people. There is only one awareness. As we embrace our spiritual awakening, as we absorb life’s beauty, we are the love. We lessen our mental baggage as we practice letting go of what is not important and absorbing our pure heart in meditation and the heart of others in daily life. We do not wait for the greater realms, give up, or just struggle. We can practice drinking the heart of life in all that we do, in all we meet, and most important from within ourselves. Our spiritual awakening continues. The rocks, boulders, obstacles of all kinds move aside as the awakening grows. We are called to absorb our awakening by receiving the pure presence in our heart. We are letting go, enjoying the divinity in our human journey.

Is it Possible for you to Shut Up?

What I learned at a Silent Stay Retreat

Recently I went to Silent Stay Retreat Center. It was very beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. It’s in the hills of Solano County in Pleasant Valley. Once you get here they encourage silence and it was quite refreshing to not feel pressured to talk to the other participants. I found it quite interesting that all of the participants were women except for one of the facilitators.  You do a couple of meditations per day in a group but the rest of the time you can do whatever you like. They recommend you leave your phone in the car so that you can really unplug. I did notice I wasn’t the only person who didn’t abide by this recommendation.  My excuse was because I needed to be available in case of an emergency with my family.  Needless to say it made me aware that I have a real addiction with my phone.

One of the things we discussed is that with all of the busyness of life, we become so work oriented that we don’t know how to get our balance. The silence is what helps us to get our balance again. It helps your soul to come home and give itself a rest. It’s a beautiful concept.

yin yang

There is a concept of Yin and Yang.  Yang being work, education, doing, achieving, making money, pursuing.  Yin is about being, accepting, allowing, receiving, silence, inner being and soul work. It’s about getting in touch with that little kid inside of you and realizing what your inner child needs. Maybe it needs to play for a bit or get some rest. It also could need to get rid of stuff that is holding you back. Such as holding on to too much stuff.  It’s difficult to listen to your needs without silence.  Your inner child gets drowned out with all of the other noises and sounds.

The thing that was nice about having silence at the retreat, is that I didn’t have to feel that pressure to speak to talk to others. They have notes of paper around so you can communicate with someone if you need to.  It is perfectly fine to be in the same room and not feel responsible to talk to them. That felt very freeing and made me realize how such a simple thing as silence can have a real benefit to our lives.

Western culture is very much goal oriented, analytical, results driven and forces one to “go, go,go.” When really what our soul needs is just some time to sit back under a tree, and enjoy the cool breeze and enjoy the moment. What would happen if we gave ourselves a bit of time?

There was silence but the birds weren’t silent.  In the quiet of the hills, I could hear the beautiful songs of the birds.  There were many wind chimes and other wild life.  Hearing all of the wonderful nature sounds was very peaceful.  There was a beautiful family of turkeys.  The baby turkeys with their mom and dad.  I took the worst picture humanly possible.

Of course I was reading an Awesome book when I was there that just completely enhanced the experience.  I took the book by Michelle Paisley Reed, called Manifesting Miracles and for the first time I was actually able to meet my soul.  It was such an amazing experience.  My soul is just so happy.  I mead ridiculously happy.  Kind of reminded me of my puppy when she gets so excited.   I was surprised because there are times when I am feeling stressed, sad and feel rushed.  When I saw my soul was happy, it just made me feel happy and want to spend more time with my happy little soul.  I feel so blessed that I was able to have this experience.

I’ve meditated for years but I’ve never really been silent for days on end and I no longer fear silence.  I wonder what would happen if we would all take the time to just shut up for a couple of days.  And of course my ego wants to judge people and tell them, “You really need to shut up.”  But not only is that not nice, but that’s their choice and we all have choices now don’t we?

Difficulty Slowing Down

geranium-wave-water-rings-55813.jpegAre you stressed out and need to calm down?  But then once you get yourself to that time and space that you should be able to relax, then your mind just won’t shut off.  And if it goes on, unchecked and if you have a poor diet, you will most likely experience anxiety and it could turn into a disorder.

But if you don’t have anxiety yet and want to prevent it, then relaxation can be very beneficial.  Especially if you have any kind of injury, then you need to just rest and recover.  But no we want to keep going.  We don’t want to slow down because then that will somehow mean that we gave up.  As I am writing this, I am describing how difficult it is for me to slow down.

tired office worker

You see after working 26 years in a career that was high stress, it takes a while to slow down.  And even as a trained yoga instructor, who should allegedly know better, I still have difficulty slowing down and so I can only imagine for most people it can be very difficult.  Some people are really good at relaxing.  They can fall asleep fast and sleep until they are well rested which is a gift. ( I hope you recognize that gift, if this is you.)

But our culture doesn’t really support the concept of slowing down.  I mean we have to do well in school.  This is so we can get a job to support ourselves and maybe our families assuming that men and women will still be able to produce children in the future with the current state of health in the US.

Our culture supports working and also there is just too much to be done.  Especially if you are a parent.  You must carve out some time for you.

So the concept of slowing down and just focusing on relaxing is an unusual concept which I am allowing myself this time.  I am noticing that it is super important to just stretch and relax a lot.  Also to recognize something that’s causing stress.  Maybe it’s a horrible song on the radio and it’s causing you jaw tension, change that shit with the quickness.val_edited-9208

Also there has to be the concept of good enough.  At some point, your workout has to be good enough.  Hey you hit all the major groups and stretched, you’re good.  There is no need to run 10 miles and do 100 push ups.  If you are not training for an event then allow yourself healing.  And many of us need to heal.  The body recovers when it rests.  When you sleep and eat healthy and relax.

Again meditation just has to be a part of it.  I know it’s the big M word that nobody wants to do but it works.  Or call on your higher power and ask for help.  Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael are super powerful and they will help you but you must remember to ask.  Of course you can always call on Jesus, Buddha or whatever concept your higher power represents, just call on it.  Relax, pray or meditate.  Then after that things seem much more manageable.  Don’t forget how Jesus went to the desert for 3 days to fast and pray.  (Is that correct? My biblical stories aren’t very good. My point is that Jesus meditated and I know some Christians that have resistance to meditation.  But if Jesus did it, then what’s the problem?)val_edited-9220

You can choose to see the stress and drama but then release it as soon as possible.  You can minimize the stress by how you choose to look at it.  Again turn it around to gratitude as soon as you can.  If you are feeling weak in your legs, immediately think, “Thank you for my legs, that I can walk.”  And if you really want to be a warrior, say, “Thank you for my strong legs.”  Speak that of what you want to happen.

You are stronger than you know but you have to learn to connect to your higher power.  Otherwise it can be difficult if you try to rely on yourself and do everything.  You’re good but everyone needs help!!

Fast Track through Dr.Wayne Dyer’s The Power of INTENTION

Have you ever read a book and it’s called something like How to have The Best Sex of your Life?  And you really want to find out, How to have the best sex of your life.  And the author is just talking about the history of sex and ethics and religion and mores.  And you want to just get to the part about the sex.  But no you have to weed through all of that stuff until way back on page 250, they start to get down to the nitty gritty.

Well I read Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book, called The Power of INTENTION.  Now I will say that it was a very good book and I do recommend reading it in its entirety.  But if you want to read this blog instead, I will give you the highlights of how you can go about living a really abundant life and hopefully cut through a bunch of bull shit.

Now some of these concepts may be a little bit advanced, and that’s fine.  But it’s kind of like something to shoot for.  It’s like when you read the Olympic Athlete’s training schedule and then you say, Oh that’s how they are in such good shape.  So it’s kind of a way of taking your spiritual blood pressure and heart rate.  Just a little assessment about where you are and maybe where you might choose to be.

Step 1:  See the world as an abundant, providing, friendly place.  When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.  When you see the world as an abundant and friendly, your intentions are genuine possibilities.  They will in fact, become a certainty, because your world will be experienced from the higher frequencies.  In this first step, you’re receptive to a world that provides rather than restricts.  You’ll see a world that wants you to be successful and abundant, rather than one that conspires against you.

Step 2:  Affirm: I attract success and abundance into my life because that is who I am.  This puts you into vibratory harmony with your Source.  Your goal is to eliminate any distance between what you desire and that from which you pull it into your life.  Abundance and success aren’t out there waiting to show up for you.  You are already it and the Source can only provide you with what it is and consequently what you are already.

Step 3: Stay in an attitude of allowing.  Resistance is disharmony between your desire for abundance and your beliefs about your ability or unworthiness.  Allowing means a perfect alignment.  An attitude of allowing means that you ignore efforts by others to dissuade you.  It also means that you don’t rely on your previous ego-oriented beliefs about abundance being a part of or not a part of your life.  In an attitude of allowing, all resistance in the form of thoughts of negativity or doubts are replaced with simply knowing that you and your Source are one and the same.  Picture the abundance you desire freely flowing directly to you.  Refuse to do anything or have any thought that compromised your alignment with Source.

Step 4:Use your present moments to activate thoughts that are in harmony with the seven faces of intention.  The key phrase here is present moments.  Notice right now, in this moment, if you’re thinking that it’s hopeless at this stage of your life to change the thoughts that comprise your belief system.  Do you defeat yourself with thoughts of having had such a long life practicing affirmations of scarcity and creating resistance to your success and abundance that you don’t have enough time left to counterbalance the thoughts that compromise your past belief system?

Make the choice to let go of that lifetime of beliefs, and begin activating thoughts right now that allow you to feel good.  Say I want to feel good whenever anyone tries to convince you that your desires are futile.  Say I want to feel good when you’re tempted to return to low-energy thoughts of disharmony with intention.  Eventually your present moments will activate thoughts that make you feel good and this is an indicator that you’re reconnecting to intention.  Wanting to feel good is synonymous with wanting to feel God.  Remember, “God is good, and all that God created was good.”

Step 5: Initiate actions that support your feelings of abundance and success.  Here, the key word is actions.  I’ve been calling this acting as if or thinking from the end and acting that way.  Put your body into a gear that pushed you toward abundance and feeling successful.  Act on those passionate emotions as if the abundance and success you seek is already here.  Speak to strangers with passion in your voice.  Answer the telephone in an inspired way.  Do a job interview from the place of confidence and joy.  Read the books that mysteriously show up and pay close attention to conversations that seem to indicate you’re being called to something new.

Step 6: Remember that your prosperity and success will benefit others, and that no one lacks abundance because you’ve opted for it. Once again, the supply is unlimited.  The more you partake of the universal generosity, the more you’ll have to share with others.  In writing this book, wonderful abundance has flowed into my life in many ways.  But even more significantly book editors and graphic designers, the truck drivers who deliver the book, the auto workers who build the trucks, the farmers who feed the auto workers, the bookstore clerks… all receive abundance because I’ve followed my bliss and have written this book.

Step7: Monitor your emotions ad a guidance system for your connection to the universal mind of intention.  Strong emotions such as passion and bliss are indications that you’re connected to Spirit, or inspired, if you will. When you’re inspired, you activate dormant forces, and the abundance you seek in any form comes streaming into your life.  When you’re experiencing low-energy emotions of rage, anger, hatred, anxiety, despair and the like, that’s a blue that while your desires may be strong, they’ve completely out of sync with the field of intention.  Remind yourself in these moments that you want to feel good and see if you activate a thought that supports your feeling good.

Step 8: Become as generous to the world with your abundance as the field of intention is to you. Don’t stop the flow of abundant energy by hoarding or owning what you receive.  Keep it moving.  Use your prosperity in the service of others, and for causes greater than your ego.  The more you practice detachment the more you’ll stay in vibratory harmony with the all giving Source of everything.

Step 9: Devote the necessary time to meditate on the Spirit within as the source of your success and abundance.  There’s not substitute for the practice of meditation.  This is particularly relevant with abundance.  You must have an understanding that your consciousness of the presence is your supply.  By repeating the sound that is in the name of God as a mantra, you’re using a technique for manifesting as ancient as recorded history.  I am particularly drawn to the form of meditation I’ve mentioned previously, called Japa.  I know it works.

Step 10: Develop an attitude of gratitude for all that manifests in your life.  Be thankful and filled with awe and appreciation, even if what you desire hasn’t arrived yet.  Even the darkest days of your life are to be looked on with gratitude.  Everything coming from Source is on purpose.  Be thankful while empowering your reconnection to that from which you and everything else originated.

Well there you have it.  Wish you all the abundance and love in your life now and forever.

Love,

Val
