The Tower

Get a home inspection before the Tower shows up!!!

I love how synchronicity shows up at the best times.  So, for the past two days the subject of the Tower Card has come up for me. If you are unfamiliar with the Tarot, it can be a very scary card. The image of lightning hitting a tower and people jumping off can feel like the end of the world. This card, through the years, has taught me to see the blessings in its messages. My response to this card is usually about foundation and re-structuring.  It can shake us to the core and leave us feeling defeated but I always reassure people that this only happens when things need to change.  The structure is cracked and it is through the lightning (en-lighten-ment) that we recognize that things can’t continue going the way they were.

The past two days, I have been revisiting a relationship that is in a state of “tower”, and I have realized that Tower also invites us to look at patterns, the bricks that have built this relationship. After much inner reflection and the help from a little angel (Sherry), I was able to see the patterns that were unconsciously created. My patterns and the patterns of the other party have created this unstable tower.  So what do I do now? I get clear about my pattern and my role in it. I remember all the wonderful things I bring to this relationship and really get to the core, foundation, the root, the bottom, and the heart and ask the tough questions. Can I still be in this relationship?  If the answer is yes, can I be in this relationship and show up in the same way? Maybe, a new boundary may need to be set. The tower reminds us that a new foundation is needed in order to build again. Maybe the relationship has come to an end or the old way of being has come to an end. Either way, I think being honest and clear with myself and what I want moving forward will lead me to the answers that I seek.

Ok, ready for the synchronicity?  I have a home inspection scheduled for today.  No biggie, but because I am going through this Tower experience, I notice the connection of what a home inspection really is. It is the scanning of the home. The inspector looks at the structure, foundation and all the workings of the home to see what things are working properly and what needs repair. He has a meter that searches for leaks and moisture.  He can tell you if the roof needs a few shingles or needs to be completely re-done.

So the lesson for today…. Get your home, body, relationships, situations inspected from time to time. A quick scan of what’s happening before the Tower comes in and shakes, rattles and has you free falling, before the crumbling of something that might have needed a tweak here and there ends or causes worst damage.

Music – The Unifier

A few nights ago, I witnessed the most beautiful thing. I was invited to a church choir concert by a friend. This was no ordinary concert. Four different churches from different faiths were invited to sing, along with the very talented Westminster College Chamber Singers.

As I arrive at the Cottonwood Heights Presbyterian Church these amazing children ages 8 to 14 are playing the most incredible piece on their violins. I later found out they were taught the Suzuki Method, where they learn to play by ear at a very young age.  Each Choir then sings one to two songs, very true to their specific religion but all singing the Universal message of worship and love. My ears were in heaven. The young adults from Westminster College displayed their years of training by singing four songs and showcasing soloists that made you want to fall to your knees and cry. To conclude the concert and with the direction of Bruce Avery, my friend’s dad, all the choirs stood up and sang “The Lord’s Prayer”.  I could hear and feel the roaring sounds from beneath my feet. The power in their voices made me feel like I was in a safe place and nothing could harm me, and if it did, so what, I would die completely content and peacefully. If that wasn’t enough there was one last song where all choirs sang accompanied by the organ and the beautiful children violinists. A gathering like that can restore faith where one has lost it. I was so very blessed to have witnessed it!

With everything going on in this world, hope and faith sneak in at the most opportune time. Music is the one UNIFIER of all faiths and religions. Feeling the power of something greater than your self is truly amazing. Whether you are religious or not, find something that moves you, something that can bring you to tears and then you will know what is truly important in life.

WORD PLAY: Since I love playing with dream and synchronicity, let’s play with the word “unifier”. I thought uniter was a word but didn’t find it in the English dictionary, which led me to unifier. I look at this word and think of “One Fire” which then makes me think of “One Passion”.  What do you think of?

Note: I was so in the moment I didn’t get a chance to record such an amazing concert, so below is a couple of videos I found on youtube of the Westminster College Chamber Singers and Rocky Mountain Strings just to give you an idea. Enjoy!

Is this Love?

“Is this LOVE?” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is our theme for February.  Whether we are talking about loving others or ourselves, we have to look within and see how our heart is doing? Is the heart light and happy? Is it stressed? Is it angry or resentful? Is there a yearning for more? Is it empty? This is a great place to start your search. A lot of people ask me questions regarding their love life. When will I have the love of my life? When will I meet that special someone? What can I do to rekindle my marriage? All these questions can have specific answers but the most common answer is looking within and checking the heart. Are you really ready to meet your partner? Do you still need to heal a past love? What do you need to let go of so you can move forward in love?  These are all things Sherry and I can help you work on. Book your Love Coaching or Love Reading session today. – Love, Glory

I am a Fool

093I love teaching classes and meeting new people. I love witnessing people who are secure and those who strive to be. I love learning about my own inner struggles especially when I am helping other individuals.

But I am a Fool and sometimes I like to fool people. Not intentionally of course. I’ve realized that there are times when I claim to love myself, my body and that I am grateful for this or that and all of it is true, but there is a small judgmental voice that says, “You need to lose weight”, “You need to be a better mom”, “You need to help more, and do more, and be more”.

What is that? I have healed this, why is it showing up again? I have let that go. I have claimed this and embraced that. So what’s the problem?

It dawned on me as I was sitting in my photography class on Tuesday night. My teacher said the most profound thing. He said, “If you are not learning or growing (I added the “growing”) you are dying”. Aha, yes, I agree with this. So, there will always be more work to do on ourselves, but if we stop healing or letting go or claiming, we will die.  This process at this point in my life should be fun with a little hint of dread, but still enjoyable knowing that I am improving and living. I am alive, I am walking and breathing! There are things that I have healed from my past, but there are layers that I am still peeling back and that’s ok, because I heal a little more each time I acknowledge it.

I know this works, because despite that little judgmental voice that appears here and there, I really do live an amazing life. When I look back to 5 years ago, I can see the change in myself for the better and isn’t that what life is about, becoming better versions of ourselves?

So now when that little voice starts taunting me, I take a few moments to question what’s underneath it.  Then I love it, thank it, heal it and release it. If it is really bothering me, it may need a bit more attention and this is when I will create a ritual for it. After a ritual I can really feel a huge shift and I can quickly move on to daily living.

The most important thing for us to remember is that we are human. We need to be gentle with ourselves and know we are always striving to be —–fill in the blank.  That voice is there to judge us but instead of looking at it as judgment, look at it as a nudge, as inspiration to heal, to let go, to change, to be better or to accept what is.  There is no right answer, but whatever you do, don’t keep repeating it over and over again until you believe it….because in reality that voice is there to help,  guide and get us moving instead of making its point. In the end we have the power to work with it to create a new positive voice.  I, myself, am a work in progress with sprinkles of love, peace and truth! How about you?

Questions to ponder….. When you look back at your life, are you happier now? Are you in a better place? If not, why not? When your little voice talks, what does it say? Do you believe it? How can you listen and give it a seat at the table? Can you acknowledge it? Will you work with it to make a change? Will you heal it?

Living the Dream, Living the Archetype

RE-Posting this article by popular request.
We are back from this year’s IASD Conference. We had a wonderful time. Met great people, attended insightful workshops, classes and presentations. The art show was amazing and experiential. My (Glory’s) favorite part of the week was attending the Dream Ball. We had to dress like one of our dream characters.
Well this year, Sherry, Tzivia and I, had a shared theme that started back in February. The Mother archetype decided to show up in dreams, synchronicities and our retreat. She really wanted to be acknowledged and honored and we did. Sherry, around the same time was working on the Empress card for her tarot deck, Mystic Illumination.
So we decided to once again invite The Mother to our dream ball. I attended as Mother Earth or Gaia. Sherry transformed herself into Lady of Guadalupe, and Tzivia embodied that last part of the poem below as “ME” a synchronicity that hopefully she will write about and share with us soon. Below is the poem that was shared at the Dream Ball written by Sherry Puricelli. I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a lovely, moving, and creative experience. Thank you ladies for sharing your gifts and thank you to the Great Mother.

Mother
 
Mother of cycles,
you are eternal Home to me;
sisters, aunts, mothers, grandmothers,
you’re there for me, always – no matter how far away I fly;
Mother Mary, Mother Earth, Mother of Galaxies,
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me…
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Mother.
 
When I can’t keep up,
or cannot make the climb, you are the charger of my soul;
when I fall,
You bleed, and reveal your scar so I can learn self-healing;
when I lay broken,
you show me flowers that broke open too,
erupting into gardens of inner beauty;
Whenever I call,
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me..
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Gaia.
 
When my heart is heavy,
you carry my sorrows and you become my rock;
When I’m missing you,
I hear your lullaby in the mourning doves’ cry.
when I am lost,
your evening star twinkles my inspiration trail.
When I lack faith,
you are my monument, my altar, my prayer,
so I can rediscover my own temple.
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me..
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Mary.
 
 
Mother of cycles,
you are eternal Home to me;
In the theatre of our mutual dream,
I have buried your key;
We’re dancing rainbows
in timeless time,
spaceless space,
and deathless death;
You’ve been with me always,
since before my first lullaby,
and after my last step.
 
I am Mother in my dreams,
continually cycling back ..
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Me.
