Speaking Your Truth

Slide1

Recently I have been considering the true meaning behind the statement “Speaking your Truth”.   Since I have been working on both healing and removing past karma to ascend, many new thoughts about life, circumstances, experiences and people have been coming to mind. I have seen people telling others they hurt them, and I have done this as well. I have seen people offering their opinions about behaviors, thoughts, etc, when they were never asked. I have seen people play victim, martyr, savior. And, we all have done this in one way or another in this lifetime and others. This to me is our ego, and not really our truth. As I understand it, the soul is our Truth. We need to connect to our own soul by healing the past.

While I have been one to question and deeply think about a lot of things in my life, I find now I’m doing it even more. I have been working on speaking my truth, as it is one of my biggest karmic lessons from many previous lifetimes.  My mind has always been one to look at all angles simultaneously.  I see the interconnectedness of many differing ways of being, different understandings of life and belief systems. I have been fascinated with other beliefs, cultures and ways of life for my entire life, and thus, am always open and accepting of other’s thoughts and opinions. This has sometimes stifled my voice, where I really wasn’t quite sure what my Truth was.  I waited until “the right time”, and missed it. The right time is the moment, otherwise, it tends to pass on by. Other times it has opened my mind to something I hadn’t realized or considered.

So, now I’m doing all of this on a much deeper level, working on understanding where my ego is getting in the way.  I have talked about letting our soul lead us, and to do this, we have a lot of ego situations and old karma to release, transform and heal.  It is a very deep and layered process.  Knowing we all are mirrors to each other, any and all interactions can be profound learning experiences. Being an energy worker for at least 10 years (Reiki Master, Intuitive, etc), while also working in the public at a busy restaurant for the past three years, I have had tons of learning experiences!  When our feelings are hurt, it is our feelings.  I believe, most people do not purposely hurt another’s feelings.  So, is it okay to tell someone “you hurt my feelings”?  Or “You made me angry”? I have read with relationships, we need to state “it hurt my feelings when…” or “it made me angry…”.  This is a different energy.  We are not blaming someone else, we are not playing victim,  We are expressing our emotions.  It is important to note, we are in charge of our own emotions. By saying that someone did something to you, such as “you hurt my feelings”, it is giving your power away. I once read someone say “wow, you are giving me a lot of power”, after another saying “you hurt my feelings”.  Think about that.  What is your Truth here? My truth is that I was giving my power away. My truth is still part of my emotional response, yet emotional response can be linked to ego. My ego was hurt.  Ego is here to allow us to have a personality and carry out the wishes of the soul.  When we give our power away, we are not listening to our soul. We are not taking responsibility for ourselves, our emotions, our thoughts, our opinions, etc. Our soul is a completely different energy once we start connecting to it.  Learning about past lives via Akashic Records, or other means, can allow us to recognize why we are experiencing the lives we chose.  Yes, the lives we chose.  It may seem that someone would not want to choose a certain life, but the soul has a reason to learn that lesson, and to release past karma.  Soul contracts, soul connections and soul lives are all part of our being and why we are here.

In this 3 year time frame, especially at the restaurant (and some family karmic lessons), I have grown quite a bit. Going through different layers of speaking my truth. From a gal who tends to be a huge challenge at work as she is rather pushy, to dealing with difficult customers, a large variety of personalities – both customers and co-workers – and being an energy worker, it has brought up so much to consider before speaking my truth.

I know speaking my truth is not being mean, aggressive or rude. Sometimes, it may feel that way to the other person, but that is something in them they need to address.  But, I do my best to speak with kindness, love and compassion when I need to say something to someone. I do my best to be a bit diplomatic while allowing my emotions to show. For most of my life, I didn’t allow my truth to be spoken. A lot of it has to do with karmic lessons, and those are truths in themselves. The truth of who we used to be in thousands of lifetimes, and what we did, accepting them, learning from them, releasing them and letting them go.  Many lifetimes I was not allowed to speak my truth for fear of incredible punishment, or abandonment or being literally kicked out of my home. Many lifetimes we have experienced as women were times when women were not seen at the same level as a man. Women had no power. When we exercised any type of power, punishment ensued.  You know in your heart, male or female, you have experienced this or know it is still happening in certain parts of our world.  The truth is that women and men are equal in that the characteristics of each need balance within us and this world. We need to find that balance within our own male and female characteristics.  This is part of our truth. At least how I understand it right now.  In other lifetimes, we may have been a male or female slave, who wasn’t allowed to speak.  We may have been a prisoner of some sort.  You may have been the jailer.  You may have owned slaves.  You may have participated in a variety of things, both “good” and “bad”, according to our soul’s and societies understanding of life. All of these lifetimes build up in us, creating karma and energy that we are here to release.  That is one of my current truths:  old karma energy needs to be released.

Speaking my truth is letting others know I am a soul working on healing and ascending. Through this process, I may have to voice something uncomfortable to myself or another.  But, when we question why we are stating or voicing something, and understanding the deeper meaning behind it, we are learning, growing and becoming more soul focused.  Soul comes from Spirit. Spirit is Love. Love of self and ALL. It is knowing each person is here for a reason. That reason may be complicated, or it may be simple.  It depends on our understanding, our healing and our level of ascension. It is knowing that anyone’s understanding, healing or ascension level is neither right or wrong, neither good or bad, neither better or worse. It is that person’s current Truth.  Truth is sometimes our opinion, our thoughts and beliefs.  But we need to question those as to whether we truly believe them, and whether they are ego-based.  Ego will judge itself and others, complain, argue the point, criticize and compare itself to others. Soul will allow others to be, and not be affected by other’s behaviors. Soul can show compassion, empathy, kindness and sympathy, yet soul understands there is a bigger picture on why, even if our current understanding does not know why. Again, this is my current understanding. As I continue my healing journey, releasing karma and ascending, I look forward to other, further and deeper understandings of Speaking My Truth, and what it means to be Living My Truth, and being even more Soul led.

Namaste!

Fields of Heather

Slide1

Imagine my surprise when I connected the dots in my life. Our souls choose our life, and give us signs, signals and messages to help our human mind “re-remember” why we are here. From our birth chart to numerology, our names, dreams and synchronicities, we are being guided by our own unique soul to learn, transform and awaken to our true authentic soul path.

I believe we have both destiny and fate, which I wrote about in another blog, however, I believe fate delivers us the message, relationships and situations for our life lessons. Destiny is our power to choose how to act and react to all fate delivers. We have been provided profound messages if we only take the time to listen, discover and understand them.

Take my life for instance. I find being named Heather one of my profound messages, along with my birth chart, my personal numerology, symbols, messages and dreams. The messages have always been there, but it took Divine Order and Timing to get there. From learning yoga to becoming a Reiki Master to more fully understand my psychic gifts so I can work with them to help myself and assist others.

Did you know “heather” is a small flowering plant, which spreads across hilly and rocky plains? It thrives mainly in Scotland, where my father is from, but also other areas in the world.  They are plants with white, pink, magenta & purple flowers. Filling the terrain with beauty, color and life.

The two main colors of the Heather plant are purple and white, and my nana (paternal grandmother) once told me white was more rare in Scotland. I remember at one point in her life, she owned an antique shop with two friends they called “The White Heather”, just for this reason. The flowers, in general, are symbolic of independence and good fortune, with purple heather meaning beauty or admiration of another person and white heather meaning protection and good luck.  To me, the heather plant has always symbolized love as well, as it was so closely related to my nana. And, isn’t admiration a form of love? And, here I am, spreading my life wisdom to others, helping those who wish to help themselves heal and transform to find their true life path.

I do believe we are all “rare”, or unique, while being part of One Universal Divine Light. The general meaning of white in spirituality is pure Divine Light.  We are ALL Divine Light and to connect to this Divine Light in our Divine Core is a very loving feeling, allowing us to connect to each other, weaving our lives, while walking our special soul paths. The general meaning of purple in spirituality refers to the Divine connection through our crown chakra, where the crown chakra has been represented as purple.  I have worked diligently over the years to connect to my crown chakra, and now my Divine core, where I find my intuition guiding me along with symbols, relationships and opportunities, using my unique spiritual gifts in many different ways.

Another interesting aspect of our lives is our birth chart, which can provide a road map for us, letting us know many things. (I have a wonderful Astrologer to recommend if you are interested, to find your personal road map.) I’m a Capricorn sun, which is significant to me, especially when you consider my first name.  Capricorn is symbolized by the mountain goat. The mountain goat lives in rocky, hilly, mountainous areas, essentially being built for climbing on very challenging terrain, maintaining balance on the often uneven surfaces. The mountain goat is symbolic of being able to withstand the rocky times with ease, balance and harmony. While all situations aren’t always “easy”, they do provide situations to return to harmony with balance and ease.  And, a friend of mine told me once to ask for situations to be “easy and effortless”, just as the mountain goat traverses it’s home, and similar ground on which the heather plant thrives! In traditional astrology, this mountain goat has a fish tail.  The fish tail symbolizes water to me, and being able to flow with the ebbs and wanes of the tides.  In other words, being able to navigate the ups & downs and ebbs & flows of the energies of life, determining what we are here to teach and what we are here to learn so we can gain wisdom for transformation, healing and enlightenment to vibrate at a higher frequency each and every time. The energy of the name Heather and the energy of Capricorn has brought me quite a lot of assistance on my life’s journey, working towards ease and effortlessness, flowing with life and moving into higher planes of existence.

It is not only Capricorn, but other areas of my birth chart which have provided assistance to understanding my life, the challenges I face, and the way I need to navigate them. I am a Leo rising. Leo is about courage, strength, leadership, authenticity and being in the spotlight…the “Spot-LIGHT”!  Leo is about shining your authentic self to the world, which I have worked on for most of my life, and have only started really touting loudly my authentic metaphysical self within the past 5-7 years. I have awakened and embraced my unique, “rare” self, just as you can!

I have worked with totems and animal symbology as well, and about 10-12 years ago, someone gave me a small stuffed owl. She said it was because she admired my wisdom.  The owl has a lot of symbology around it, including wisdom. The owl also symbolizes seeing at great heights, like intuition. It symbolizes being able to see in the dark, or being able to see the dark side, meaning being able to see through people’s false pretenses or lies, or in the way of a energy worker, being able to see and assist clients to see and determine root issues of any ailments or issues they are dealing with, or I am dealing with. The owl recently came to me in a dream.  It was a small baby owl that kept flying towards me to get my attention.  Owl was reminding me of my mission, while what I need to work with to transform, as the surrounding dream gave me the message I needed with the owl. And, looking back, that gift of the stuffed owl was significant, as that was the beginning of me starting to reveal my authentic self, and the wisdom I have gained and already knew through my past lives and connection to the Divine and my intuition.  I have worked with my totems, medicine and messenger animals, and continue to do so, as my life continues to progress. These messages are available to you, if you are open to them, and willing to work with them.

Numerology is another important factor in my life. I am a life path 7.  The basic meaning of 7 is gaining knowledge and wisdom! A 7 is a thinker, and I do love to think. A 7 is also analytical, as is Capricorn, but also intuitive.  Imagine my surprise when I connected these messages while looking back on my life. I was always very intuitive, I just didn’t know it, as I believed my thoughts were, well, just “thoughts”.  My strongest psychic gift has been “clear knowing” or claircognizance. I have developed and worked with the others types, however, this is my strongest one. Life path 7’s also have a natural inclination towards spirituality.  This can mean different things to different people, but to me it is working to gain wisdom of all aspects of the metaphysical worlds, understanding the intricacies and interwoven facets of Life. A life path 7 can be insecure (as a child I was when others didn’t “believe” my “thoughts”), a loner or aloof. These are presumed characteristics.  To me, these mean I am okay being alone, (however I also enjoy time with close friends and family), and my aloofness is more about non-attachment to drama and issues that are not mine.  I still care deeply, but I have learned not to attach to others problems, as accepting others problems as our own is not compassion, it is drama, and creates havoc in our lives.

Everything I have learned along with my psychic gifts is how I help others awaken and “Become Soulfully Empowered™”. Thus, this is how I choose to spread the energy of my authentic soul, like fields of heather, which is my own personal Fields of Heather.

I would love to hear your thoughts and any questions you may have.  I would love to assist you in uncovering and discovering your unique gifts, and re-remembering and understanding your soul purpose. Please contact me for to schedule a session or a free 15 minute consultation.

With love & light,

Namaste!

Heather

This new moon partial solar eclipse is the only lunar event this month, as February has no full moons.  This is also the bookend to the Super Blue Full Moon Total Eclipse on January 31st.

This one is all about love, relationships and communication!

The energies in the Universe are part of our lessons, and provide us clues to what we need to work on in our lives to learn, heal & transform.  They awaken something within us at the right time bringing our attention to it for consideration, transformation and enlightenment, especially eclipses! (And we have three more this year in June, July & August.) That is why astrological events are so important to follow and learn about.  Click on the link below to learn all about this one!

I am now offering a 15 minute FREE exploratory phone call so we can chat about how I can help you both navigate the energies and learn how to “Become Soulfully Empowered™”!
