Self Care Awareness

Self Care Awareness

Self care awareness is something that we all must culitvate daily. Especially if we are choosing to live a Soul fed life. Taking care of and loving yourself is much beyond pedicures and manicures which many have been taught to believe is real self care. 

Truthfully, self care awareness requires strong boundaries and a willingness to integrate your own personal shadows. This is a practice of not only loving yourself and others but also of trusting yourself. 

When you begin to trust that you know what is best for you then you will begin to see your life truly change because you are being led by your Soul. Do not let others tell you who YOU are. Do not take on other people's baggage and please do not spend your precious life energy trying to convince other's that you are worthy of their time and love.

To be clear, I am not talking about cutting people out of your life or judging others for how they want to live and then saying that these things are just "not in alignment" with you. No I am dicussing radical acceptance here. Acceptance of what you cannot change in life as well as knowing that you have the power to decide what you can and cannot navigate with your current consciousness. 

Which, ultimately, will come down to what you want on a Soul level. You see, your ego will tell you stories so that you can justify your actions. Your Soul will ask you to feel into that story with your heart so that you can move beyond your mind and the constant trap of fear.

Your mind is the great illusionist and fear is its best trick. Your emotions are your compass and it is up to you to decide if you are going to allow yourself to take a journey into the depths of you and see past the narrative of the mind to the shores of connection.

Only you can captain the inner sea of Self. Only you can trust yourself enough to see your true value. 

Enjoy the journey and remember your worth. 

Much love, Akasha

Are you watching my new Youtube series?

Recently we did a powerful practice for the bandhas. 

These are spaces in the body where energy can escape according Tantra. There are three spaces that are often referred to as the main bandhas and when practiced all simultaneously this is known as Maha Band or the Great Seal.

The word Banda translates as gale, or seal but when deeply studied in context we translate it as “coming together”. In this practice we bring the energy together by focusing on each lock and then lastly on the Great Seal. 

 

Enjoy!

Frequency....

Frequency....

Your Energy Level

This is the second part of last weeks blog about feelings. By now you have been observing your feelings and probably have become more aware of the way others around you feel also.

Frequency is all about YOUR energy. It’s what you show up with each and every single day and has a direct effect on every interaction you have in your life. As we begin to understand our feelings then we also begin to change our frequency. ALERT: some people are not going to like it when you change your vibe!

This is where you must practice DISCERNMENT. You have to learn how to spend your energy wisely. I am not saying that you start dropping your friends/colleagues that stress you out like mics 🎤 I am just saying that this may be where you start practicing limited exposure in order to recognize the difference and then ask yourself what brings you bone deep value.

I am saying that your frequency is your responsibility and you can shift it anytime you want. They key is your awareness. By using your feelings as a compass you can raise your frequency and clean up your aura. You remember me mentioning “your vibe attracts your tribe” last week. Let me give you a simple exercise to understand this.

Look at your five closest friends an you will see exactly where you are vibrationally as well as where you desire to be. Those things that you are attracted to, they reflect where you want to be and those things that you do not like often reflect where we are within ourselves yet not aware of those things consciously as we supress our personal feelings and this is why we get triggered by anyone we interact with.

This can feel like tough medicine, so I want to remind you that compassion is key on the healing journey. Compassion doesn’t mean complacency. Compassion means recognition, non-judgment and direction. If you are not sure where you are vibrationally check out this chart below that’s all about feelings and energy. It will give you a great idea of how you are resonating energetically when you have emotions aka feelings!

One of the easiest ways that you can start working with shifting your frequency and healing aspects of your life where you desire change is by listening to Solfeggio Frequencies. Here is a link to a wonderful starting point for you. I have played these for years at night. Efforless healing…how cool is this?! If you have never heard of these then keep reading for sure.

Solfeggio frequencies are part of the six-tone scale believed to have incorporated sacred music, including the beautiful Gregorian Chants. The unique tones and chants are found to impart spiritual blessings when they are played harmoniously. They have been tracked all the way back to John the Baptist! Below you can see how these tones have been used medicinally for decades.

So now that you are beginning to realize that everything is energy and you have the ability to spend your energy wisely (currency of consciousness: more on this next week!) the next step is taking action to facillitate the vibrational shift to the place you desire to exist within. Some ways that you can shift your frequency are:

  1. Gratitude (This is one of the quickest ways to amp up your vibration.)

  2. Love

  3. Meditation

  4. Breathing Practices

  5. Eat high vibe-nutirent rich food

  6. Movement

  7. Reduce or Eliminate Alcohol and sugar

  8. Think Positively

I personally practice all of these and I also love to dance. Getting physical is such and easy way to shift your frequency. Just turn on your favorite song and let it wash through you. However, I believe that breathing and meditation are the FASTEST ways to create a sustainable shift. In just THREE minutes a day you can shift your energy. Here is a link to one of my meditations that will help you feel balanced and collected daily while releasing stress.

While I am off to get my groove on I look forward to seeing you back here soon. If you would like to dance with me, then here is one of my favorite all time jams!

I will leave you with one of my favorite all time quotes : “ We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are SOULS dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our SOULS play their music.” -Albert Einstein

See you back here next week where we will dive into facillitating mindset for transformational growth. 🌷

Stay Illuminated!

Moving beyond programming...

Moving beyond programming...
I taught Yoga Nidra today and was reminded of the fire that it takes to live in this space place and time. In the script there was this moment of the golden egg within the burning flame. This visual represents the higher self and the lower self. The fire is the lower self, the golden egg is the higher self.

Many of us, due to programming, trauma, etc are only aware of the lower self or focused on the fire of what we can create/manifest.

When you realize that the golden egg is not a reward for the results of your actions but instead is your TRUE nature then you will start to realize that the way you send and spend the energy of the flame of the lower self is 100% up to you.

Your “reward” if you like this language, as many do, is that you realize that you can create from your HIGHER BEING state ALL the time without losing energy aka fire.

The only way out of pain, is to go inward and understand it.
The only way to create the bridge to the higher self and move beyond the temporal flame of the ego is to get still and meditate. To simply take the time to observe, ask and allow it to be revealed….

You are so much more than the flame of this one existence.

Since it’s Sunday I will quote an ascended master many of us are aware of:

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Happy Sunday…may you be illuminated and lit up today and everyday.
May you stay curious and may you ask with an open heart so that you can
Receive all that you desire here, there and everywhere.
Much love, Akasha Continue reading

Feelings....

Feelings....
You see, feelings can FEEL messy sometimes. Why? They feel messy because they are SO big (energetically powerful) and we are not really taught how to express them nor do we sometimes feel safe expressing our feelings. Now fast forward to the reality that you are an adult and well you may have spent most your life not communicating with a very HUGE part of YOU. Continue reading

Thoughts on how to truly live on Earth...

Thoughts on how to truly live on Earth...

A friend of mine recently shared this on Facebook and I thought that I must share it here. Enjoy the read as well as the contemplation this may lead you to practice.

When Einstein gave lectures at U.S. universities, the recurring question that students asked him most was:
- Do you believe in God?
And he always answered:
- I believe in the God of Spinoza.
Baruch de Spinoza was a Dutch philosopher considered one of the great rationalists of 17th century philosophy, along with Descartes.
(Spinoza) : God would say:
"Stop praying.
What I want you to do is go out into the world and enjoy your life. I want you to sing, have fun and enjoy everything I've made for you.
Stop going into those dark, cold temples that you built yourself and saying they are my house. My house is in the mountains, in the woods, rivers, lakes, beaches. That's where I live and there I express my love for you.
Stop blaming me for your miserable life; I never told you there was anything wrong with you or that you were a sinner, or that your sexuality was a bad thing. Sex is a gift I have given you and with which you can express your love, your ecstasy, your joy. So don't blame me for everything they made you believe.
Stop reading alleged sacred scriptures that have nothing to do with me. If you can't read me in a sunrise, in a landscape, in the look of your friends, in your son's eyes... ➤ you will find me in no book!
Stop asking me "will you tell me how to do my job?" Stop being so scared of me. I do not judge you or criticize you, nor get angry, or bothered. I am pure love.
Stop asking for forgiveness, there's nothing to forgive. If I made you... I filled you with passions, limitations, pleasures, feelings, needs, inconsistencies... free will. How can I blame you if you respond to something I put in you? How can I punish you for being the way you are, if I'm the one who made you? Do you think I could create a place to burn all my children who behave badly for the rest of eternity? What kind of god would do that?
Respect your peers and don't do what you don't want for yourself. All I ask is that you pay attention in your life, that alertness is your guide.
My beloved, this life is not a test, not a step on the way, not a rehearsal, nor a prelude to paradise. This life is the only thing here and now and it is all you need.
I have set you absolutely free, no prizes or punishments, no sins or virtues, no one carries a marker, no one keeps a record.
You are absolutely free to create in your life. Heaven or hell.
➤ I can't tell you if there's anything after this life but I can give you a tip. Live as if there is not. As if this is your only chance to enjoy, to love, to exist.
So, if there's nothing after, then you will have enjoyed the opportunity I gave you. And if there is, rest assured that I won't ask if you behaved right or wrong, I'll ask. Did you like it? Did you have fun? What did you enjoy the most? What did you learn?...
Stop believing in me; believing is assuming, guessing, imagining. I don't want you to believe in me, I want you to believe in you. I want you to feel me in you when you kiss your beloved, when you tuck in your little girl, when you caress your dog, when you bathe in the sea.
Stop praising me, what kind of egomaniac God do you think I am?
I'm bored being praised. I'm tired of being thanked. Feeling grateful? Prove it by taking care of yourself, your health, your relationships, the world. Express your joy! That's the way to praise me.
Stop complicating things and repeating as a parakeet what you've been taught about me.
What do you need more miracles for? So many explanations?
The only thing for sure is that you are here, that you are alive, that this world is full of wonders."
- Spinoza
