Tabula Rasa: cleansing, centering and integrating

ta·bu·la ra·sa
ˈtäbyo͝olə ˈräsə,ˈräzə/
noun
  1. an absence of preconceived ideas or predetermined goals; a clean slate.
    “the team did not have complete freedom and a tabula rasa from which to work”
    • the human mind, especially at birth, viewed as having no innate ideas.

     

Sometimes, in order to stand in our power, we have to wipe the slate clean. We have to start over, and have the courage to let go of what needs releasing.

There is a beautiful dual current that shows up during this time of year. One one side we have the celebration, the joy, the giving and receiving. On the other we have the dying, the darkness, and the emotional struggle that often also arises. This beautiful duality is a powerful teacher. It gives us contrast that creates growth, and it offers us possibility.

Wiping the slate clean takes work. It’s a process. Not everything gets wiped away with ease. The hardest part is starting, making the commitment to show up to whatever process of cleansing works best for you. This is a great time of the year to open, to engage, to begin. What’s holding you back from stepping into your power? What’s creating stagnation in your current experience? What do you need to do in this moment to begin healing?

Cleansing can take many forms. Sometimes we have to start with our physical spaces. De-cluttering our lives of unnecessary “things”, donating them to those in need, examining our attachments are all important. Sometimes it means taking the broom the the floors, putting hands in dishwater, organizing a workspace.

We may feel the call to cleanse the body. Taking a warm bath. Moving the body through dance, yoga, going for a walk–building body heat and sweat. It may mean changing out diets to be more nutritious.

We may feel the need to cleanse the inner temple. Meditating, engaging in energy healing, breathing deeply, and journaling are ways to bring balance and awareness to the inner space.

The missing piece of the puzzle is integration. Once we begin the process of cleansing mind, body, and spirit energy begins to move. How you integrate into life after the cleansing phase is just as important as the process of cleansing. Being at center, is being fully integrated.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be diving deeper into cleansing processes. We’ll also discuss how to integrate after the changes. The path of full integration is not an easy one, but it is necessary.

Take time to feel where you are in your body. Take a moment to bring awareness to your inner and outer spaces. Breathe deeply. Know that you are loved.

Giving Yourself a Reading

One way to connect to your intuition and to develop trust in the information that it is giving you, is to get in the daily habit of giving yourself readings.  There are a wide variety of techniques and processes out there, but the idea is to keep it simple.  I’m going to give you a simple process that I have shared with students and clients of mine over the years.

  1. Write down your questions. I harp on journaling A LOT because it is one of the most powerful spiritual tools in our arsenal of self discovery. One of the reasons so many people have difficulty in doing readings for themselves is that they either aren’t sure of the questions they want to ask, or they aren’t sure they are ready to hear the answers to those questions. Carrying our journals with us gives us a place to write down the questions we may have for our soul.
  2. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable with yourself. Being open to our questions is as important as being open to the answers, and both require us to be vulnerable enough to show up to our process of self inquiry.
  3. Open to your heart. One simple method of tuning in is to bring your awareness to your heart center. You can do this by simply bringing your hands to the heart. Allow yourself to connect to the simple rise and fall of the chest. Feel the beating heart beneath your hand. Let this act of body awareness be a doorway to deeper listening.
  4. Listen for the answers to your question with your entire body. We often get stuck in our head, and we often feel as if answers to our questions will come with some deep flash of insight, or thundering God force words through our ears. Sometimes the answer comes as a subtle fluttering in our bellies, a breath that goes a bit deeper than all the others, or you may see something in your external space that triggers deeper exploration (a photo, a color, a bird, a tree, etc).
  5. Write down anything you are feeling, seeing, sensing, or hearing (internally or externally). All of it is used in determining the answer to the questions you are asking. Don’t over think things, if something is standing out, write it down.
  6. Take a step back from the session. Let the answers and questions gestate a bit. You might come back with more questions based on the answers you receive – GREAT!  This means you are now moving into a soul dialog rather than just a question and answer session.
  7. Sometimes the answer isn’t what you want to hear, but it is always what you need to hear. Be receptive to whatever comes through. One of the most dangerous things we can do it is toss aside an answer just because we don’t like it. I see this often in cases of relationship questions. It’s hard to hear the truth. Sometimes the answer is that it is time to move on, but tossing aside that truth filled answer because it’s not what we want to hear only leads us to more suffering. If we are having trouble with a particular response we have received from our intuition, we can always ask our soul to amply the answer we have received, be open to digging deeper if you feel called to do so:
    1. What do I need to know about my relationship at this time?
      1. Beloved, it is time to move forward into your own light as this relationship has come to the end of its course.
      2. What can I do to make the transition one filled with grace?
      3. What areas of this relationship have caused us to arrive at this point of finality?
      4. What is my true teaching from this relationship with (xyz)?
  8. Have fun with giving yourself a reading. Too often we only use this beautiful connection we have to the soul our soul (the intuition) to ask about the stuff that requires heavy lifting. Ask simple things, ask about manifesting, ask about creating abundance, ask about winning the lottery, ask about expanding your connection to your spiritual path, ask for affirmations of love, ask for any number of things you might desire insight on, but ask!
  9. Take action on what your soul is giving you in the reading. If we are asking to improve our lives, and then we don’t follow through, it is only going to prolong the suffering and delay arriving at that place of liberation.

This is just a quick primer, something to have a bit of fun with, and my soul is nudging me to do more with the blog, so here it is. I hope that you find the information useful, and if you have questions you can alway contact me at: michael@michaelbrazell.com

Weekend Specials, Radio Show, and Life

rtrbuddhaI hope that everyone is doing well.  Life has been up and down for many (myself included).  Be sure that you are taking time to breath.  Take a few moments each day to be in gratitude for all that life is bringing you–yes, even the struggle.  The struggle that we go through is a teacher, it helps to bring us to our edges, and helps us to initiate change.   Take a moment and just breathe. Place your hands on your heart, and feel the drum of your life beating, moving life force through your very existence.  This is what life is really all about.  Finding a bit of stillness in the chaos.  Don’t get so hung up on the small things.  Allow yourself to have grace, peace and love.  The world will bring its challenges.  Life will be difficult.  Decisions will not be easy… and even in all of this we can find love.  The grass is already green where you are.  Stand in power, stand in love, and let your breath move you.

 

–I’ve just loaded up my website with the reading specials for June!  So head over and check those out.  I am also offering some really great offers for this weekend (5/30-6/1).  If you purchase a 30 or 60 min reading this weekend, you’ll get one free.  You can share the extra reading with a friend, use it for a follow-up, or just keep it for a future “soul check up”.  The sessions are good for 6 months, so you don’t have to book them right away.  This is a great deal since they are combined with the already reduced rates!  Click here to go to my site, or fill out the form below.  If you are currently going through a financial hardship and still want to get a reading, do not hesitate to contact me.  We can always work out an exchange, a payment plan, etc.

The Cleanse: Hitting the Spiritual Reset Button

istock_000013005656xsmallI want to start off this post by saying that the cleanse I am posting here is my journey.  Some of you may like it, others may not.  I only share it because we can all learn from each others trip along the soul highway.   I often find myself called to do a cleanse when I feel it is time to do a reset.  My spirituality is my life, my profession, and my passion.  Having come through a big transition, I feel that I am still carrying some old resistance, habits, and patterns.  Doing deep, and honest self inquiry allows us to go into a cleanse with clear intention.  I am also feeling that things are shifting for me spiritually.  I am starting to work deeper in the intuitive space, communing with my guides, my angels, and higher vibration beings.  When engaging these higher energies, I find it of value to detox and purify the body as much as possible.  It is also important to have a plan of action in place for going into your cleanse.  This helps keep you focused and aligned with your intention.  I am hoping to do a daily video post for this as well, and you can check out my YouTube page here.  If I do the videos I’ll also try to post them here as well.

So, for this cleanse and detox I am starting with 10 days.  I am starting with a 3 day master cleanse and then going into 7 days of water only.  Each water day is going to be dedicated to a particular chakra.  I bought 7 jugs of distilled water.  On each of the jugs I am going to draw the sacred symbols associated with each chakra, and will charge the water by chanting/toning the chakra sounds into the water.  I also have some wonderful chakra incense that I’ll be using for my morning meditations.  This cleanse is a bit more intensive than other things I have done in theChakras-in-Lotus past, but I feel that this is what I need to do right now to clear out some stagnation.  I am also structuring my reading time, online time, and yoga practice to support this adventure.  I’ll end the 10 days by doing 3 days of green/raw protein shakes, and I’ll allow my intuition to tell me what comes after that.  I am cutting gluten, sugar, soy, and processed foods out of my diet moving forward.  I have been receiving a lot of clear messages from my guides to start doing this, so I am.

When stepping off the ledge and into something like a cleanse, or detox be sure that you allow yourself time to prepare to go into it, but also be kind and gentle with yourself as you exit the cycle.  The most important part of a cleanse is your journal.  What emotions are coming up?  What body reactions are you having to the cleanse?  Write down your weight at the start, and track it throughout to be sure you are not losing too quickly.  What are your dreams telling you during this time?  I find that a cleanse usually brings up much more than our dependence on certain foods and additives.  Remember also, that cleanses and detoxes do not need to be food centered.  Taking a break from the computer, TV, the bar scene, clubs, or even pulling away from certain people might be a good thing.

For me, this is also a chance to reset parts of my life.  To come back to center, to bring my power home.  I do lots of energy work, self-healing, self-reflection, readings on myself, and this allows me to also be of service to my clients, friends, and soul family.  It also allows me to work more closely with this new and wonderful energy that is coming in.  I’ve had a lot of resistance stepping more deeply onto my path, and this process helps to clear away some of that muck.  I am also going to be working on cleansing and balancing the energies in my physical space.  Lots of work ahead, and lots of great things that I’ll be sharing here in the next few days.

What in you is calling you forward?  What in you needs to be cleansed right now?  Are you able to pause now for a moment, and bring awareness to that area of your being?

You are Loved.  You are Beautiful.  You are Divine.

Channeled Transmission: Stuck in Darkness, Stuck in Light

Dark-and-LightMy guides have been pinging me a lot lately.  I feel that we are on the verge of big change.  They are bringing me new awareness, and my intuition is increasing.  Moving into greater states of trust is where the challenge lies for most of us.  Moving into trusting the deeper calling of the soul can often bring up resistance.  Life is full of challenge, but life is also full of joy and love.  As I watch information come in from a variety of fronts, I am noticing a lot of polarization.  One thing we have to be careful not to get caught in things being too filled with darkness, nor too filled with light.

So, what does that mean exactly.  We can’t be all “doom and gloom”, but we also can’t be completely “love and light”.  The world is a beautiful mixture of each of these principles.  We do not want to get so stuck in positive thinking that we deny the experiences that are unfolding.  We also do not want to get so trapped in impossibility and darkness that we do not enjoy this life experience.

In the coming weeks I will be posting regarding specific events that are taking place, and will take place in the months/years to come.

We are currently being bombarded by  massive amounts of energy.  The solar flares over the year have increased in intensity, and we have faced a lot of difficult astrological alignments.  Imagine for a moment that we as humans are operating at 100 watts of energy.  The new bombardment of energy is causing us to elevate, awaken, and open up.  We are seeing this in the new awareness being actualized in our response to many of the global changes.  People are also becoming more self-aware of their purpose, their path, and who they truly are.  For others, they are not sure how to respond to the changes.  They are becoming confused, feeling disoriented, and anxious.

Overculture is bombarding humanity with much more distraction than ever.  Technology is becoming much more fantastic and in many ways is taking away even the most simple of actions  from everyone.  When distraction reigns overtakes awakening, or replaces it with a false sense of “true” connection movement halts.  True connection is found in simplicity.  True connection is found in the joy shared by human engagement, true connection is found when pen touches page, true connection is found in conversing not texting/emailing, true connection is found when life is shared through interaction with one another.

Technology can serve a purpose, but do not let the built-in distractions keep you away from true connection and purpose.  Wake up to your life fully.  Give attention to those things that are serving your highest good, recognize joy, find gratitude in the small things.

Do not shy away from the struggle, it serves a purpose.  The closer the sandpaper shaves the wood, the more refined the outcome of creation.  What is shaping you in this moment?  Where are you giving your attention?

This is a beautiful time of challenge and change.  The dark comes with the light, find personal balance in each.

You are Loved.  You are Beautiful.  You are Divine.

Channeled Transmission: 5/17/2013 2:43pm

New energy is being birthed at this time.  Many of you are feeling the effects of this new energy.  Your sun is emitting new waves of energy, stronger than many of you might be aware of.  You are all an experiencing influx of this new energy, and many of you that are not aware of it will feel scattered, unsure, and might not have the ability to process it.   Some of you are waking up to new realities, others are choosing to fight the awakening.  You get bound to your distractions and your technology gives you the illusion of connection, and it holds you in manufactured safety.  In the coming years you will see your technology grow beyond anything that imagination can deem possible, but do not be fooled by its offer of connection.  Many of you in this time are awakening to your reality, your true selves are merging with possibility, you seek tangibility, and your human bodies thirst for connection.  This is one of the beautiful things about you as humans, is the connection you share to one another.  Many of you take this connection for granted, you turn away your glances from one another, you do not stop to offer words of joy… we sometimes wonder what you will all do when your technology no longer needs you.  We bring a warning, but we do not want to cause unnecessary fear… YOU are here to birth a new age, to re connect to the spark that is your life, to open to the divine within each other.  Your beauty and your power is in your connection, your community, your power to see one another.  Your technology serves a purpose, but should not be all that you strive for owning, less in the end it owns you.

Do not loose that connection.  The power of touch, the tangibility and the fragility of life, and the essence of all that you are.

 

You are loved beyond all measure… and for now we leave you in light.

 

 

Is it Possible to be Too Awake?

This past weekend I had an awakening of sorts.   I immersed myself in documentaries, blogs, podcasts, and deep reading. There are moments when information hits you, and it stops you in your tracks.   These are moments where reality as you know it ceases to exist and then you have to shift your thoughts, actions, and senses to accept the new reality that is unfolding.  One reality is fractured and then we begin to align to the new reality.  For many of us that do spiritual work, we have had these experiences.   When we are first time mediums, and we have that first experience of ectoplasm or physical interaction with the spiritual world that we can no longer go back to what was before.

I could feel the world around me shifting, and my perception of reality over the weekend has changed.  I could feel myself in the process of awakening, and was aware of everything that was happening in that space.  When we start tuning in to the forces that are working beyond the veil, when we see the interconnectedness of cosmic/local/global events, the words that are heard even when they are not said.   We start moving through the web of illusions and into truth, reality, and a different kind of connection.

I’ll be sharing a lot of the information that I am being shown by my higher self, guides, and what I am learning through an expansion of my research soon. I am doing more to capture my experience, journaling, recording, and documenting so that I can deepen the process of being able to reflect .

There were moments when the expansion grabbed me so intensely that I had to lay on my yoga mat and ground… Then a thought came in– Is it possible to be too awake?

We live in a society that teaches “Ignorance is Bliss”.  Many of us would rather not see than see, but once the veil is pulled back we can not un-see what is seen.  When we start opening our eyes we can try to deny what we are perceiving but once the illusion is shattered all past, present and future events begin to restructure around the new perception.  An example is Santa.  Once we learn that this was actually our parents placing Santa’s name on gifts it takes away all the past “santa presents” and it no longer allows us to see Santa presents in the future as the same.

Society is shifting and changing rapidly.  We can choose to focus on memes of cats, birds, and positive statements or we can choose to engage some of the deeper darker stuff.  Understanding where the pain is allows us to direct healing towards it.

We can do this in a structured way.  Choose to start waking up.  Pick an area of your life that you want to bring attention and awareness towards.  Food is one place to start.  We start looking at how our food affects us.  How are your purchasing choices impacting the world, where do your foods come from, etc and go down the rabbit hole.  Awareness opens us to new realities, but if along the way we find an area that needs healing and energy we can give it.  If we are looking at food and know that local farmers are being kicked out by big Agribusiness we can send light, protection, and healing to those that need it in that space.

We are no longer in a place where we can be complacent in our spirituality.  Spirituality needs to be the place we move from and not the space we just sit in to escape.

Choose to open your eyes, engage your space, and wake up.  Is it possible to be too awake?  There is only one way to find out…

Birthing the New Era & Messages for 2013

We all survived 2012.   The new era is upon us.   There are many that are happy that 2012 did not bring with it certain doom, but for many 2012 did bring much upheaval.  Some are still sorting through the pieces.  Some are finally taking a breath and giving thanks that it is over.

 

 

 The end is only just the beginning.

EarthMother-birth-Goddess-fochtman-KubbyI really hate to be that guy that comes in and bursts the bubble, but we need to be real about what this new age is bringing us.   We are not just going to hop into a beautiful new experience of love and light.  There will be light, but there is also darkness.  We are still in the womb.  The birthing process is beginning.   Rarely do children just pop out of the womb.  The birthing process is difficult.  It can take a long time.  There is blood.  Screaming.  Breathing.  Tearing.  Stress… and it all leads up to the most beautiful of all creations.

We should look at 2012 as our labor phase.  The weather, the earth, the elements are all still cleansing us. I think we have forgotten who is really in charge and mother Gaia is reminding us that it is by her will that we are allowed to be present in the delivery room.  I agree that we will meet lots of love in the process, but we have to also remember that we have to stay strong in our processes.

We just recently had our New Years eve psychic fair at the shop.  The readings at this psychic fair give me a gauge for what the year will hold for many of us.  January and February are going to be months of reprieve from the chaotic energy of 2012.  Things are going to feel “easy”.  It will be easier to move energy, things will feel lighter, and we may feel this sense of spiritual euphoria.  The lesson here is:  DO NOT BECOME COMPLACENT.  We are being given a chance to rest, to get our bearings, and to decided what we truly want from this experience.   What are you birthing in this coming year?   What are you hoping to create?  Do not abandon your spiritual processes, do not become lazy with your yoga, meditation, studying, connecting and prayer work.   This is the trap when things feel overly aligned.   Then when the energy picks up again in March/April you’ll be behind the ball instead of in the flow.

Up your protection.  Start a daily protection ritual.  This can be simply adding prayer work to your day, smudging, incensing, or whatever you feel amplifies your auric space.

This is the year of Embodied Spirituality.  The 4th and 5th dimensional energies are merging with the 3rd dimensional space (the dense space we call home).  Manifesting will happen faster than ever, but we must do it from the lower soul.  Trying to jump up and out of the body will make you feel disconnected.   A lot of new age spirituality has been about getting us “out of the body”.  Do not forget that no matter how high you soar in the astral realms, the physical body is where life is lived from.  All that you see in those realms can be beautiful, but what is it serving you here.  What are you creating.  Do not use ascension to escape.  Ascend into your experience by dropping down into your wild animal soul.  Connect to your body, your sex, your primal nature.  Our bodies hold the memories of all that we are, have been and will become.  Do not forget her in the process of trying to align.  When we forget to include the lower self we are only getting a portion of the information that we need in order to use discernment.  We will only be manifesting through the egoic space and not through the space of full alignment.

We are preparing for the new age.  We are driving forward in our experience, and creating waves of love, light, darkness, and connection.  Where are you being called?   What do you need in this time of transition?

Be safe, keep working, and do not forget….

You are Loved.  You are Beautiful.  You are Divine!

Seance: How to Safely Reach Through the Veil

Halloween tends to be a time that brings an allure to what lies just out of the normal scope of reason.  The veil between worlds is said to be at its thinnest, and for many the desire to reach through is enhanced.

A seance is one method that people use to collectively reach through to connect to those on “the other side”.  There are a variety of books that give process and detail the “how-to” for spirit connect, but I am going to share my personal process for connecting and doing it safely.

Anytime we open up to spirit we want to enter this space through protection.  Spiritual protection can simply be reciting a prayer before starting, smudging the space and self, or creating boundaries with stone (onyx, black tourmaline, or hematite).  Entering in through protection allows us remove fear from the process, it allows us to engage the connection through a place of love and openness.  If you are doing this in a group setting it is important to be sure that everyone is engaging in the protection for the event.  Creating a group dynamic of protection keeps the intent set for love and a positive connection on all sides of the veil.

After you engage in opening up to your protective work, you’ll want to set up sacred space and set and intent for the connection.  A lot of people assume that seances are solely used for contacting those that have crossed over.  You can open up to the energy of guides, angels, guardians, or your higher self.  Set the intention for the event.  Set the desire to open up to those external energies and then allow that intention to drive the event’s energy forward.  If there are loved ones that you wish to connect to set the intention to allow their energy to come through.  One way to do this is to have an object of theirs, a photograph, or their name on a piece of paper.  Focus tools allow you to deepen the connection of the experience and to call their energy in directly.  You can sit in a circle, or just create a relaxed environment that everyone feels comfortable in.

Once you begin the session, trust is the next stage you have to enter.  We have to trust that when we engage the process, that we are allowing this flow of information, energy and love to occur between our dimension and theirs.  Some people use spirit boards, automatic writing, pendulums, tarot cards, or just opening up your natural senses to the space.

A lot of people assume that they will get profound messages, but you have to be open to sounds, smells, sensations as well as anything vocal that might occur during the session.  Be sure to keep notes of what you are feeling, thinking, seeing.  Sometimes the message is in the process of opening up, inviting in our loved ones, and sharing in the energy of the moment.

We often forget about those connections until holidays  or other events connected to the passing.  They are with us when we need them, just a heart beat away.

To close the session, thank those that have stepped through.  Thank the energy, the divine, and sit in the energy of the experience.

Also remember you don’t have to wait until Oct 31st to connect, and you don’t need a medium to reach through.  We all have the power of connection, and everyday is sacred.

Love and Light

Pagan Blog Project 2012: “C”– Channeling

Channeling is a fun and sometimes misunderstood aspect of spiritual connection. Channeling is something that we all do. It is moving energy through us for purpose of utilizing divine connection. There are different forms and levels of channeling, and for this post I am going to focus on what I can direct and indirect channeling. Direct channeling is where you step aside and allow spirit or “entity” to speak directly through you. This style of channeling takes a lot of practice and you have to be fully connected through a place of trust with your guides, guardians and angels. This form is also called trance channeling. Edgar Cayce who channeled his higher self, Jane Roberts of the Seth series and more recently Ester Hicks are some of the more famous channelists that have used trance/direct channeling. Some of you might be thinking “No way am I letting something take over my body to speak through me!”, and that is a totally understandable reaction. I personally have done direct channeling and it does take a lot of work to get settled into being in that high vibration place. We have to use caution when stepping into this energy.  We want to be sure we are grounded in deep protective work.  Any time we are opening ourselves up and handing over control, you want to be sure that your natural system of protection is in place.  This can be affirmations, prayers, or any method your tradition offers for shielding and protecting from low vibration energies.  Direct channeling is not only letting entity move through you.  When we engage in energy healing we are also channeling the energy through us and into the treatment.  We facilitate the connection to the energy and allow it to move through us.  The difference in healing is that we are usually more present during the experience than in letting entity move through you fully.  Here are some examples of channelists at work:

Jane Roberts and Seth:

Ester Hicks and Abraham:

Most often times when the channelist is “in entity” their voices might change, they may take on different characteristics, and their physical appearance might change.  These are just a few examples.  There are a lot of great books, and groups that focus on channeling.  One of my favorites is “Opening to Channel” by Sanaya Roman this was one of the first books that really helped to connect me into this sacred space of connection.

Indirect channeling is more of a telepathic connection.  We allow a connection to our guides, angels, guardians, and even earth-bound spirits.  This is typically the style of connection you will see many mediums use to relay information.  There is more barrier between the person relaying the information and the energy delivering the information.  This is also typically what happens in a reading.  Whether it be tarot cards, guides, or intuition when we are relaying the information we are channeling that aspect in and connecting to a higher dimension of the energy.  This is the most common form of connection, but not many call this “channeling” but in essence this is what indirect relay of information is.  We are opening ourselves to inspiration, insight, and intuition.

Channeling in its many forms is a fun way to connect into divine space. Explore and look into channeling.  I have always found a channelists connection and how they came into contact with their guides fascinating.  Explore the ones I listed above and enjoy your own process of connection.
