New Audio Helps You Relieve Stress and Achieve Goals Faster

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Los Angeles, CA – October 18, 2011 – WarriorSpiritAudio.com (“WSA”) has released a self help audio that does far more than help people relieve stress and achieve deeply desired goals.  Its ultimate purpose is to help people connect with their inner power and strengthen the faith in the power of themselves.  Entitled ‘The Warrior Spirit—How To Use Hidden Mind Powers and Ancient Wisdom To Create Wealth and More’ it helps people feel more optimistic and relaxed.

The Warrior Spirit audio gives step-by-step help to achieve personal goals with greater ease using higher mind states and shamanic wisdom.  If the mind is filled to capacity with non-stop mind chatter, you make it difficult to create the results you want in your life.  Stress prevents you from having insights, creative ideas and confidence that can help you achieve your goals; it weakens your ability to solve issues that trigger anxiety and stress,” says Mary Rivas, founder of WSA.

The audio and companion e-book are ideal for today’s environment where people experience a lot of anxiety over stressful events such as losing their jobs and homes.  Latest statistics indicate that 75% of people experience stress regularly; more than half say they find stress debilitating and want to relieve stress.  Stress is a key contributor to high blood pressure and heart disease.

The Warrior Spirit is different from common self-help books; it empowers people at a deeper level.  It teaches people how to connect with a higher force and increase their personal power to relieve stress and overcome challenges in daily life.

Visit http://warriorspiritaudio.com to watch a video that shares wisdom and reveals how people can tap into their mind powers to relieve stress as well as change their lives for the better.  Also, visitors can download a sample chapter of the audiobook and companion e-book.

August 2011–A Time To Do More Than You Think Is Possible

Monday, August 1st, 2011

The main theme for August is Wake Up and Pay Attention.

This does not mean becoming more hyper-vigilant or controlling but rather becoming more present and taking notice from a place of expanded awareness. Most of us have narrowed our experience of life and ability to respond down to a very narrow band, being asleep or unconscious about the greater part of it. If we didn’t, we would be overwhelmed at what we have put up with and continue putting up with.

In the development of the mind and the mental ability to problem solve, we have traded in the awareness of our instinctual and emotional responses for the illusion of security in trusting that the mind can solve everything. We are quickly seeing that in these accelerated times not only can the mind not keep up, but that it limits our ability to respond in other ways so crucial to our survival at this time. The mind is almost never present. It is almost always either in the past; reviewing, judging, trying to understand, categorizing, filing and organizing; or in the future; planning, worrying, tracking, organizing and trying to get a handle on linear time. Notice that when you are doing a task that requires complete presence, the mind becomes quiet and inactive, taking a back seat.

Animals in the wild and other aspects of nature react to their environment with efficiency in their knowing, timing and action. This does not come from a place of mental planning but rather from being aware and responding to the present circumstances. Nature is very flexible. Because of our attachments, expectations and constant mental micromanaging, we have lost both the ability to be flexible and the ability to be instantly responsive. We have diminished our experience of life, we have fallen asleep, and we forgotten how to trust and be present.

We are still in an emotionally centered year. The emotional center is there to teach us a different way of reacting. The emotional center is not about emoting or being emotional. It is about relying on a different level of intuition that takes in way more information than the intellectual realm of the mind can ever process. We need to remember how to use this center more effectively so that we can trust our non-mental process and begin to give it more credit. The mind is a very useful tool and it is important to use it to set intentions, goals and direction, but we cannot expect the mind to get us there. The mind on its own is not capable of driving enough energy to accomplish anything. It is too limited and yet we have given it this impossible task. No wonder we feel helpless, powerless, fatigued and confused.

It will take time to turn this pattern around and you can start by waking up your senses and paying attention to your surroundings by being more present and aware. If you spend a little bit of time every day in non-mental awareness practicing being present, you will exercise this part of yourself and eventually it will become automatic. This is what is required in order to move into a higher state of consciousness at this time. Anything you can do this month that raises your consciousness is an excellent use of the influences. Any practices that help connect you to spirit and get you out of your mind will also be very helpful.

There will be many lessons and opportunities to see just how effective you can be without your mind trying to control everything. The discipline will be to keep yourself present and out of the past and the future. This is the time to step up to the plate, show up fully and take responsibility for yourself, your actions and your truth. It is time to get out of denial, to open your eyes and all your senses, to truly look at what you have been putting up with and to do something about it. This requires courage and action and you may not always get positive responses from others, as misery loves company. When you decide to take the high road you may need to set some boundaries against certain energies that are no longer compatible. Remember that negative reactions from others are usually projections and it is important not to take things personally especially when you know you are on the right track.

By the same token, if you are having a strong negative reaction to someone or their actions, you may need to look at how you may be projecting on them or how their actions may have threatened your own complacency and denial. See each of them, as a teacher and a mirror, stay neutral, present and awake.

This is an incredibly accelerated time where incredible things are possible. You need to watch for the aggression mode of the year showing up in negative ways both in yourself and in others. Since the mind is being quickly surpassed by the speed of things these days, you also may experience anything from feeling like you are losing your mind, panic attacks, anxiety and amnesia. This is much about the dissolving of linear time and thus the tracking method of the mind. Watch also for bleed-through from the astral plane at inconvenient times, throwing you momentarily off the course of linear thought. You are being called upon to trust all the other senses, to trust your intuition and to learn to process information in a different way. The acceleration of the times makes it possible to accomplish way more than your mind would “think” possible. At the same time, if something is destructing, it will take much less time than “usual” for it to completely destruct. Any process is aggressively accelerated in these times so if something seems stagnant or not moving, all it needs is a spark of intention to set it on course.

May 2011–Influences To Take Advantage Of and To Beware Of

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

This month begins a much larger cycle of bringing all the disconnected parts back into communication with each other. In the name of individuality and based on the model of competition, the right hand has not known what the left hand is doing for a long, long time. The masculine has been disconnected from the feminine, our personalities have been disconnected from our essences, the mind has been disconnected from the heart, systems of the physical body have been disconnected from each other, and we have been living in an uncooperative, separate, lonely, dysfunctional world. There is no communication, everything is secret, and we guard our ideas, hearts, generosity, emotions and energy, measuring them out in small amounts and then only for the highest price. We are just as stingy with receiving as we are with giving, guarding ourselves against the danger of exploitation and the fear of annihilation. What a sorry state we have found ourselves to be in at this juncture of our evolution.

With all that said, we now have a great opportunity to change this pattern around from one of separation to one of cooperation and community. The theme of getting two sides of the same edge to communicate and work together is a huge one. This is just the beginning of a process that will probably take years but is necessary and inevitable as the next step in our evolution on the planet as a species. When was the last time your heart spoke to your little toe or your liver spoke to your pancreas? When was the last time you spoke to your food with gratitude for where it came from? When was the last time you asked for help?

We have been fed an illusion that power comes from being able to stand alone and to not rely on anything or anyone else. To some extent it is true that being self -sufficient is preferable to being overly needy, however this applies more to how you run your energy rather than to what you accomplish in the world. It is a known fact that when you have help and support you can accomplish a great deal more than if you don’t. What would it be like to have all your body parts cooperating with you in accomplishing a physically challenging endeavor? What would it be like to have help and support come easily, naturally and without conditions? And what would it be like to be confident that your intentions will always manifest because you trust 100% that it will be so? It is time to change our approach to life from one of effort and mistrust to one of believing in the cooperation of the universe.

There is a focused energy to the month that will work well with the aggression mode of the year when used in conjunction with your clear intentions. Intentions should be set very specifically and with plenty of flexibility for cooperation and support. Intentions should always be set around how you want to end up feeling and how satisfied you wish to be in your life. So when you are setting an intention for prosperity, instead of a dollar amount, set your goal to be what you intend to feel and what you imagine that amount will give you in terms of satisfaction. That way you give the universe more options for cooperating with you on manifesting your intention. Likewise if you are looking for a relationship, be specific on how you wish to feel in that relationship instead of what you think it ought to look like. The points of reference for the achievement of goals and manifesting are outdated and we are just now in the process of creating new ones. We have not yet experienced what it would be like to live life from a fully supportive and cooperative place where there was never any concern that an intention would not manifest. These are uncharted waters and a very exciting time on the planet where anything is possible provided we keep eliminating our attachment to old ways.

One of the aspects of this month is focus. Focus is important if you want to harness the engine that will drive your intention into being manifest. There can be no distractions and you have to be clear about what you intend. This is not a time to sit around and wait for something to happen. This is not a time to become frozen with fear like a deer in headlights. This is a time to move, to act, to intend, to ask, to pray, to get support and to be cooperative. Cooperation is a two way street. You must be cooperative yourself if you want to have cooperation. Part of this process is simply coming into an awareness of all things being connected. Set the intention to do your part and everything else will fall into place. Consider yourself and all that you have around you that supports you in life. Think of that support system as being a connected community of parts and pieces that need to work together to synthesize your life. From your car to your house to your clothes to your plumbing to the food you eat to your body functions to your friends, work, nature, time, your bank, grocery store etc.; they are all connected and form a cooperative community of sorts that supports your life.

Many of you have the illusion of being separate, alone, disconnected and unsupported and yet you are not. If you begin to focus on how everything is connected then you will begin to experience a greater sense of support, belonging and harmony. You will begin to streamline your intentions and trust the universe to deliver. Your life will become richer and you will feel more active and participatory rather than passive and victimized. So be aggressive about what you want but be a cooperative participant in the setting and manifesting of your intentions. One of the biggest lessons of these times is to learn to communicate and learn to trust. The fear of disillusionment and disappointment has kept most of us from communicating our deepest wishes. We don’t want to be seen as arrogant, foolish and unrealistic so we have kept ourselves small and secret. It is time for that practice to be done with and time to turn our sights towards a more intimate, trusting and cooperative pattern where so much more is possible. Instead of asking why, we should be asking why not.

Whenever you are working with a theme, the opposite of the theme shows up to illuminate the lessons. So in the case of cooperation what you may experience first is the uncooperative aspect of your life. You may be shown where you are disconnected and where there is effort. You may experience life as being very uncooperative. Should this happen, acknowledge the reminder and get to work changing your attitude. We have a tremendous opportunity right now to connect up the dots, to heal the rift between opposing forces and to get ourselves back on track. When you think of cooperation think of connecting right and left, behind and in front, up and down, inner and outer, the heart and the mind, masculine and feminine, giving and receiving, the body and spirit, all with the intention of getting them to communicate and cooperate.

How Being Single on Valentine’s Helped Me Achieve My Dreams

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Here’s a personal Valentine’s day story that I shared last year.  I am reposting it for this Valentine’s Day since so many enjoyed my story:

* * *

Valentine's dayWith Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I would share a
personal story about my life when I was single for a long
time. I remember that I even dreaded the arrival of
Valentine’s Day. Year after year, it was the same old story.
I would spend Valentine’s by myself, and would, more often
than not, indulge in sad feelings.

At that time, I had no idea how struggling with being single
would one day help me achieve my life’s dreams.

One day, I called a dear friend of mine, who is amazingly
wise, and confided to him that I was really tired of being
single.  The first thing he told me was to not waste time
and to start immediately to pursue my life’s purpose, and
the right man would surely come my way.  He went on to tell
me that once I did as he suggested, my life would positively
change for the better.  “Enjoy your single days joyfully now
while they last” he added.  He advised me to think of this
new approach to life as an “experiment.”

The moment he told me that, it really made an impression on
me. I am not sure why but deep down a little voice told me
that his words of wisdom were right on.  I made a decision
to seriously contemplate what my life’s mission was. And, I
committed to living every day with joy and gratitude for my
life.

Joy Is An Ally That Will Help You Manifest What You Desire

Later I was to discover that joy is a powerful emotion.  It
has a high vibration and will help you manifest what you
deeply desire because its vibratory level is closest to the
level of creation.

I have to tell you that I even made a pact with Spirit,
Universal Intelligence.  I promised that I would deeply
enjoy being single and that when I did find my dream
partner, I would commit to always supporting him in every
way I could to help him live his life’s purpose.  I felt
really good about this “deal” that I made.

The “experiment” went very well.  Friends and family asked me if
something had changed in my life.  One friend even asked me
if I was in love.  My energy had positively increased, and I
did feel in love—in love with life that is.

During that time when I was single, I spent quiet time
focusing on my life’s purpose, on what I wanted to
accomplish before I left this mysterious world. Having time
to myself helped me to discover my new life’s work. I soon
realized that I wanted to stop working for companies, and
that I wanted to create my own business to help people
become successful using ancient wisdom.

My Single Days Were Over When I Increased My Energy &
Followed My Purpose

I became really excited about realizing my life’s purpose,
and I started to focus more and more on my future business.
Long story short, my business goal led me to attend an
Internet marketing conference.  It was there that I finally
met the love of my life that I had so longed for.  My wise
friend had been right.  I had found the right man once I
focused on following my life’s mission.

As I look back, it has become clear to me.  I found my
beloved partner when I was already happy with my life and
focused on achieving my life’s vision-my purpose.  I had
learned the “lessons” that I needed to learn.
Interestingly, my beloved also had made a decision to pursue
his purpose in life, and that is what led him to attend the
very same conference that I attended.

Ancient wisdom teaches that a man not living his vision is
living death. As we focus on a higher purpose, we become
whole and the universe will absolutely support our path
every step of the way. It is a universal law.  We become
empowered and can more easily release those heavy beliefs
that drain our energy. We acquire the power to live a
magical life.

Emotions, such as joy and gratitude, are powerful forces.
They will increase your energy and will help you manifest.
In contrast, heavy emotions, such as fear and worry, drain
personal energy and keep you stuck.  Have you ever
efficiently achieved a goal or solved any problem while
engulfed in emotional trauma?

Now I want to share tips for increasing your energy,
emotionally as well as physically. To create what you deeply
desire, such as finding the love of your life, requires
personal energy.  Change your energy, and change your life.

10 Empowerment Tips To Increase Your Energy and

Change Your Life

1.    Love yourself.  How you feel about yourself will
determine what you attract into your life. Forgive your self
now, accept your self, and become free to create your ideal
life.  If you haven’t attracted the beloved that you desire,
ask yourself if you truly love yourself. It will be
difficult to find the right partner to love you, if you can
not love yourself.

2.    Follow your purpose.  As an Apache shaman, once said “A
man not living his purpose is living death.”  As you follow
your life’s purpose, you become whole and are in an
advantageous position to achieve your personal goals. You
have access to a higher power that formerly was not within
your reach.

3.    When you find yourself feeling low, do empowering things
to increase your energy such as spending time alone in
nature.  Nature has a high vibration and is a powerful ally.

4.    When you find yourself feeling low, release what’s
holding you down.  Heavy emotions that drain your energy,
such as fear and worry, are likely to be the first culprits
you need to release.  To the extent that you are held down
by old beliefs, patterns and wounds, you are not free to let
go of the past and create your future.

5.    Make a full commitment to take action to get what you
want in your life. Do whatever it takes to keep your energy
up and be impeccable about your intent.  Read the February
forecas
t to learn more about the power of intent and
realizing your dreams.

6.    Write in a journal how you want your life to be like
today.  Be the script writer for the movie you want to
create. Empower your goals with envisioning and other
success techniques. Learn shamanic empowerment practices
that teach success tools together with wisdom.

7.    Do something for yourself that you’ve never done-
something that you would really enjoy.  When you break one
pattern or a routine, it can help you to dislodge other
patterns that keep you stuck in the past.

8.    Treat yourself to special chocolate with at least 80%
cocoa. Pure raw cocoa lifts the mood and increases energy
due to the abundant presence of phenylethylamine aka PEA
(known as the “love molecule”) and anandamide (called the
“bliss chemical”).

9.    Treat a friend and yourself to something really out of
the ordinary-an energy enhancing food that is “supercharged”
with PEA-the same compound found in chocolate that
stimulates pleasurable effects on mood.  E3Live BrainON
contains approximately 50 times more PEA than chocolate.

10.     Relax about your goal. Every morning give thanks.
Gratitude is a powerful ally in the universe. This force
will not only help you achieve your dreams, it will keep you
from falling into the dark realm of fear and unhappiness.
The moment you feel gratitude, you open your heart and are
on the track of power.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

February 2011–A Powerful Time To Manifest Using Unbending Intention

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

The main theme for February is Commitment.

It is time to get off the fence and really commit to your intentions and goals without the need to know how you will accomplish them. There has been a tendency to get bogged down in the need to know and the process of trying to understand whatever present situation you are in. The mind has entertained itself long enough with the creation of stories to try and get a handle on this understanding. All this processing and storytelling has thrown conditions into the mix and kept true commitment at bay. “I will commit to this if…..”

This is the month where the “ifs” or conditions around your intentions need to be put aside and relegated to a position of less importance. You know on an intuitive level what you truly want and it is only the fear of not getting it that keeps you hesitant to commit. It is the mind that comes up with the reasons that feed the fear and keep you imprisoned in your story. Are you willing to give up your story? Who would you be without your story? This is not an easy opportunity to deal with. It demands trust, courage and intuition. Use the aggression mode of the year wisely to cut through the bullshit of the mind and begin manifesting that which you have fully committed to. Remember that we are also in an emotionally centered time and headed for experiences that don’t necessarily make linear or logical sense.

For more details about the trends for 2011 (link here).

Belief systems are probably the most challenged this month as they create the foundation of our stories. Belief systems are anchored in the past and will continue to affect our future unless they are disconnected. They are instruments of the mind and only geared towards survival. They will continue to feed you false information until you examine them and give another instruction. This is a great time to examine your beliefs and see how absolutely divorced many of them are from what is really going on in the present. It is important to stay out of judgment as you realize how outdated your beliefs are and the enormity of what needs to change.

Everyone has specific beliefs about what will make them happy, healthy, loved, successful, well, tired, sick, sad, strong, stressed, depressed, anxious, relaxed, good, bad, responsible, irresponsible, forgiven, spiritual, productive, unproductive etc.. Take some time to examine each of these categories and ask yourself what your personal and specific belief systems are regarding each one. Sometimes it is easier to write in a stream of consciousness exercise unless you are able to do this with a partner where you simply express the stream of consciousness regarding each belief. This is not about judging anything to be either right or wrong. This is about uncovering what’s there so you can see what has been running the show. Emptying the mind in this way is very powerful and you will get to see where your fears are hidden. Belief systems are very limiting in that they constantly create the reasoning behind why you can or cannot do or be something or someone. There are many examples in history of people who have accomplished extraordinary things because they did not buy into the belief that they could not.

We have talked before about the power of the collective belief system that guides the evolution of all living things on the planet. In order to change the collective belief system, each individual must first change their own. It is the hundredth monkey effect that dictates that when enough individual belief systems have evolved to a less limited function, the whole collective will be free to evolve as well. So all of you out there that wish to be of service to the planet at this time can do so by working on your own belief systems.
Along with beliefs come expectations. Expectations are different from committed intentions as they are usually attached to a specific outcome. They are fed by your beliefs and their success or failure becomes part of your story. A true “don’t know mind” leaves a lot of room for your intentions to manifest in interesting and wonderful ways. When you commit to something one hundred percent, without the need to know how you will get there, the universe will begin to weave it creatively into the physical world.

All information about everything already exists in the quantum field and that information will respond to the instruction it gets that comes from unwavering commitment. The minute you try and control how something is going to happen you diminish the power behind the intention that is necessary for the quantum field to respond. And if you commit with conditions (I will do it “if”) the quantum field is a bit confused as to what you really want and will end up creating chaos from mixed messages. Sometimes you have to make a choice. Here is a good example of that. If you are involved in legal negotiations for damages for health reasons (accident, environmental pollution etc.), there is an attachment to your continuing to be in poor health as part of the argument. All the energy you are putting into the legal process is reinforcing the fact that your health and well-being are compromised. The quantum field takes that as an instruction from your belief system. You need to continue to be compromised in order to receive compensation. Therefore the other intention of actually getting well is clouded by the need to remain ill.

Regardless of the other players involved, you may have to examine your original motivation and intention and commitment. If your primary intention is to end up completely well then that is what you intend even if it comes to you in a different way than winning a legal battle over compensation. Beware of giving the field mixed messages. Committed intentions that are not compromised are indeed powerful and have the ability to become manifest almost overnight. If your intentions are compromised or clouded with doubt, mixed messages or conditions it will be much more difficult to see results.

We can’t stress enough the power of these times and what they afford to everyone in terms of opportunity if you can commit, stay in present time and get out of your mental trap that needs to know and control the how of things. You don’t need to know how, you just need to know what. In fact there is very little information available with regards to “how” these days. And what is available is outdated and doesn’t work. So be a pioneer of your own life and decide what you want. Then commit to it one hundred percent without the need to know how you will get there. The early explorers did not have a map. They followed their intuition and they followed signs. They paid attention and stayed present. Signs are different than conditions. You can always ask for signs to guide you so you know you are on the right track. Signs appear as support and provide synchronicity and magic. Conditions are what you place on your intentions that keep them from being fully committed.

Let’s talk about the aggression mode of the year as it relates to and will be filtered through the obstacles. This is something many of you will have to deal with perhaps on a daily basis and it may not be pretty. It will be important to stay out of judgment and to practice compassion and neutrality instead of reacting. All the obstacles will become more aggressive. For example someone who has martyrdom can become aggressively blaming and complaining and demanding; those in stubbornness, aggressively obstinate, argumentative and defensive; those in impatience, aggressively intolerant, dismissive and inconsiderate; those in self-destruction, aggressively destructive and self-destructive and belligerent; those in greed, aggressively hungry, hoarding and ungrateful; those in arrogance, aggressively going for attention and trying to make themselves special; and last but not least those in self- deprecation aggressively withdrawing, giving up, rejecting support and acknowledgement. Remember that self-deprecation is also one of the obstacles of the year and will be manifest by everyone in varying degrees. All the obstacles are nasty, do not serve spirit and will derail your good intentions and commitments faster than anything. So beware, try not to react to others and watch your own tendencies.

October 2010–Intensity: Breakthroughs or Breakdowns

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

The main theme for October is intensity.

In this month’s forecast, Lena Stevens, author and co-founder
of an international school and consulting firm dedicated to
the study and application of shamanism and wisdom, reveals
influences and opportunities to take advantage of.

can print at no cost!

Below is an excerpt from the October commentary.

Everything this month is amplified, paving the way for
stronger reactions and increased sensitivity. It’s as if the
100 watt light you are used to operating under just got
turned up to 1000 watts. The resulting light intensity would
take some getting used to. This intensity has been with us
to some degree all summer through various themes and the
veil that has kept us asleep and in the dark has been slowly
coming off. But now that veil is completely coming off
exposing us fully to the intensity.

Some of us will instinctively try to turn away and retreat
even deeper into a dark shell. But there is no escape. As
in childbirth there is now full dilation and a need to stay
focused in order to push through our own birth.

This birth is a birth of higher consciousness bringing with
it many gifts for those who choose to be awake and proactive
instead of staying asleep. There is potential to increase
our understanding of the different planes of existence, the
quantum field, and how the universe works. There is
potential for greatly increasing telepathy, seeing,
channeling, healing and other practices using altered
states.

There is finally an opportunity for beginning the
necessary integration of the higher centers (higher
intellectual, higher emotional, higher moving) with the
intellectual, emotional and moving centers, in order to
achieve greater and more regular access to levels of higher
consciousness. The higher centers are the gateways to higher
consciousness and those of you who have been doing practices
to increase your consciousness will be greatly rewarded this
month. You may experience sudden breakthroughs or
opportunities that were not available before. Take advantage
of what is showing up.

The sun is a barometer for intensity. The sun itself as a
being is going through its own changes and increases in
intensity. Since our evolution is being guided in part by
the sun, we are affected by the changes the sun is going
through. There is an energetic radiation that is designed to
help eliminate the cancers of lower vibration material,
forcing us to look at our attachments to old patterns and
non-serving behaviors. In a way, the parental energies of
the sun (father) and the earth (mother) are holding the
container for our rebirth at this time. As the influences
this year have been more masculine or yang, the solar theme
has been more prominent. In the near future we will shift to
a more feminine set of themes for balance.

What if you could see more, taste more, smell more, feel
more sensations, be more emotionally empathetic, experience
stronger telepathic communication, and feel generally
enhanced in your awareness of everything? What if every
moment of your day unpacked itself into a whole experience?
This is what is available to you should you choose to be
awake. Waking up requires a 100% commitment and turning your
back on everything that is not of spirit. It requires a
willingness to embrace the intensity of the moment
regardless of what it is bringing or feels like at the time.
Staying awake takes focus, responsibility, acceptance and
neutrality.

What is necessary to move into intensity in a positive way
is the elimination of any imprinting based on past
experiences or learned behavior that has “intensity” meaning
something negative, harmful, hard to deal with, painful,
victimizing, hurtful or devastating. This is a tall order
but if you set your intention to begin the process and if
you catch yourself when reacting fearfully or negatively to
an intense situation, you can shift your perceptions and
stay present, focused and neutral. If you can begin by not
judging anything intense as good or bad but simply and
neutrally intense, that is a start. Remember that in this
illusionary game of life, we are entering the place of
higher stakes, a time of initiation into a higher
consciousness, if we choose to play.

On the other hand, if fear has you by the throat, you could
experience an intensity that drives you even further into
negative states of depression, anxiety, pain, anger and
resentment. If you find yourself martyred and complaining,
you will feel your victimization with increased intensity.
Everything is enhanced and magnified. So if you are angry,
you will be hugely angry; if you are worried, those worries
will seem overwhelming; if you are dissatisfied or find
fault with something, that fault will seem magnified and out
of proportion. This pertains also to finding fault with or
judging the self. So if you are in a funk, the funk will be
intense. However if you are in gratitude and appreciation
and trusting in spirit, you may very well find access to
those higher centers and be astonished at how well your life
unfolds. What if the intensity were channeled into joy,
love, connectivity, creativity, satisfaction and well-
being? The choice is always yours so choose well.

Since this month supports completions you may wish to review
your responsibilities and see if they still hold true.
Eliminate anything you don’t want magnified or intensified
and let spirit do the rest. You make the rules, so as long
as they are in alignment with spirit, it is time to put them
up on the board.

This month is marked by high drama. Intensity always brings
out the drama in events, relationships and experiences. You
are likely to see high drama unfolding around you as others
process various forms of intensity. Have compassion rather
than judgment and be neutral in your involvement. The more
reactive you are to drama, the more you feed it. Focus
rather on the positive aspects of opening the senses and
living a fuller daily life. Drama usually means a reaction
out of proportion. Don’t go there. Don’t play. Save your
energy. Remember that drama is an energy leak and this month
it is highly important to track your energy leaks and
eliminate those you can. You want to be able to channel your
energy into positive thoughts, feelings, intentions and
actions. So stay away from drama whenever you can.

There is great wisdom available to all of us at this time
should we choose to act our age. It is tough to shake off
the cultural and planetary imprint of greed, competition,
unworthiness and struggle. But it is time to transition from
that paradigm to something a bit user-friendlier. Since this
is a time of transition there is support for completions,
new choices and putting old tired ways behind us. What have
you created over and over and over again that does not serve
you? Be done with it. Give it over to the WEST and to
spirit; mourn its death and move on.

Most of us have been trapped in the prison of our own
limitations and the illusion that we have no choice.
We rely on our mind’s definition of time and space, what
is possible and what isn’t. Now we are being challenged to
set the security of the illusion aside and trust something
we have not yet experienced. How do you know everything will
be OK? You don’t “know” but you can imagine, intend, trust and
surrender. In a way you have no choice. Evolution only goes
in one direction.

Always beware of how and where you focus energy during intense
times. Every thought, word and action has its repercussions, so
take responsibility for your attitude and what you put out
there. Stay away from conflict and always come from love and
compassion. If you keep the practice of perceiving everyone
as spirit, you are much closer to those higher centers and
the gifts they offer.

Being present and paying attention with your eyes and ears
open will keep you from getting sideswiped by something
unpredictable. We are still in the influence of sudden
unpredictable events and if you are not paying attention
they can throw you off balance. To be proactive with the
intensity of the times always turn around so you are facing
what is coming. Never turn your back to the ocean as a
sleeper wave can come and take you out to sea. Never turn
your back on a challenge, responsibility or opportunity
especially if you wish to have some say in the outcome.
Being present is being awake. Start tracking your habits of
going to sleep. Are you on autopilot when you are driving a
familiar route? Are you on automatic when you are walking a
familiar path? Do you go to sleep when you are in familiar
physical surroundings? The mind tends to rob one of being
present by grabbing the attention with its worries and
constant planning. Try staying present for periods of time
during the day so you are attentive and focused only on the
task you are doing. Notice every detail of your
surroundings, and engage all of your senses. Whether you are
cooking, shopping, walking, driving, relaxing, cleaning,
working or playing, spend some time every day being present
in a way that you encourage and channel the intensity into a
higher centered experience. Put into a daily practice some
form of focus on opening the senses and heightening your
awareness. You will be rewarded.

How the month shows up:

YOU PERSONALLY

This is a month of personal transformation, healing,
completion and breakthrough. Using the intensity proactively
and wisely will produce certain results. Whatever needs to
be healed in your life will come up intensely. You may be
highly emotional one minute, quick to anger the next, and
then suddenly feel such a heart opening and gratitude that
you don’t know how to hold it all. What may come up for
healing are any issues around the masculine or feminine
wounds you may still have. This month is supportive in
beginning the process of healing these two energies. It is a
planetary theme. You may also feel you need to take some
time for yourself this month. Quiet, silence, meditation,
contemplation are necessary for aligning yourself with the
positive aspects of the month. Don’t get lazy. Get present.

All the areas of your life are affected by intensity; your
health and physical body, your emotional life, all your
relationships, your perceptions, your work and pretty much
everything you do. You may have choices to make and
challenges to face. Always ask for help. If you are a
control freak that always needs to know and always tries to
second guess what will happen in the future and is always
thinking, processing, planning and worrying, you may be
intensely frustrated and intensely crazed. Shut the mind off
and “put it all down”. The same goes with your attachments.
Don’t be disappointed when plans change or something does
not go as you thought it should. Be grateful ahead of time
for whatever opportunity this change has provided.

For some of you this month will be incredibly inspiring,
higher centered and feel like the big reward for all of your
hard work and discipline and practices. For others it may be
excruciatingly intense, overwhelming and difficult. If you
are feeling the negative aspects of this intensity, begin by
eliminating drama, energy leaks, mental judgments,
attachments, worries and fear. Stop complaining, take
responsibility, become neutral and practice gratitude.

RELATIONSHIPS

There is lots of healing possible in all relationships. As
we are in a larger theme of healing the masculine and
feminine, whatever needs to be healed between these two
aspects will come up for you personally as well as globally.
This is a long-range issue and a theme we will be working
with for some time. However, due to the intensity of the
month and the support for bringing to the surface what needs
to be healed, be prepared for your own wounds to surface.
Beware of reacting in negative ways to any intensity in your
relationships. Emotions may be high and irrational, and
reactions dramatic. Remember to take responsibility for what
you may be feeling as it is your own issue. Stay away from
blame. Practice compassion for yourself and others and
always come from love. There is much healing that can happen
this month if you allow it. Don’t let stubbornness and a
need to be right get in the way. Get help if you need it.
On the other hand, this is a spectacular time to strengthen
and deepen real essence connections with others. Since
everything is enhanced through the higher centers you have
an opportunity to move into an experience of deeper
connectivity, recognize agreements and go straight to the
essence of a person, bypassing the shield of their
personality. You also have the opportunity to heighten your
telepathic communication with others and to perceive the
truth. The experience of oneness is what older souls crave
and it is certainly possible to experience this month.

THE ENVIRONMENT

The environment will continue to surprise us. Just when we
think we have a trend predicted, it will change. More and
more we are learning that it is our collective belief system
that influences what happens in the environment. If enough
people believe something strongly, it is likely to occur, as
we are a highly creative species. The best strategy is to
keep a “don’t know mind” and a great deal of neutrality
regarding weather patterns, earth phenomena, and the
environment in general. Focusing on the negative aspects of
who did what and when to damage the environment does not
help. What helps is feeding the environment with
appreciation through heightened sensitivity and gratitude
for the incredible planet we live in. And as usual we will
remind you to be flexible in your plans and neutrally
accepting of what comes. Disappointment only occurs when
there is expectation. So instead of expectation with some
attachment to the outcome, have a strong intention to have a
spectacular experience however the environment supports it.

Because of the high intensity of solar energy this month, we
could see some solar flare activity and some irregularity in
the tides. High solar energy needs to be balanced with water
so be around water this month if you can. If not, then work
with water as an element of the feminine and a support to
your emotions. Baths, hot springs, water features, ponds and
fountains are all alternatives to actually being in and
around larger bodies of water.

HEALTH AND THE PHYSICAL BODY

Kidneys and adrenals are stressed this month as well as the
liver and spleen, especially if you tend towards anxiety or
worry. Trying to hold on to your mental controls is hard on
the physical system. Think fluidity, neutrality and calm
acceptance. Find ways to practice relaxation in the midst of
turmoil and intensity. The physical body is going through
changes. As the vibration on the planet increases in
intensity, the body becomes more sensitive to its
surroundings but also more receptive to energies and
treatments that can put it back into balance. This is a good
time to redefine what healing means and to dispel the myths
about how long something takes. Part of the outdated belief
system and paradigm has us on a time schedule of
development, aging, healing and recovery.

As the body becomes more aligned with the higher centers,
its ability to function at a higher level of consciousness
will also increase. What we call miracles will become standard
procedure as we learn to work with the quantum field and to
navigate outside of the limitations of time and space.
Remember that it is what you believe to be true that
ultimately runs the show. So practice suspending some of
your judgments and reactions regarding the physical body.
Stop blaming it for not working and start appreciating it as
the servant it is to your essence. It is only being and
doing what you have required of it for your own karmic
lessons.

The Deeper Secrets To Manifesting Wealth and Health

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

People who experience extraordinary accomplishments in life
positively use the power of their minds.  Some achieve
success by being fully aware of this inner power while others
do so unconsciously.

Dr. Maxwell Maltz,famous reconstructive and cosmetic facial
surgeon, international lecturer and author of best-selling
self-help books, consciously used his inner mind not only to
achieve huge personal successes but also to help thousands
of patients.  He coined the phrase “Theatre of the Mind” to
represent a place you can mentally go to in order to strengthen
your self-image and heal emotional and psychological wounds.

Napolean Hill, famous author of Think and Grow Rich, advised
people to seek guidance from helpers in one’s mental laboratory to
help achieve financial goals.

The list of famous, and not so famous people, who have
discovered their inner power and achieved huge successes in
their lives goes on and on.

The name doesn’t matter.  Call it Theatre of the Mind,
Mental Lab, Sub-conscious Mind or Theta Mind.  It’s the know-how of

July 2010– A Time of Crisis and Opportunities

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

In this month’s forecast, Lena and Jose Stevens,Ph.D,
founders of an international school and consulting firm
dedicated to the study and application of shamanism and
wisdom, reveal influences and opportunities to take
advantage of.

Click here to access the full monthly commentary (for free).

Below is an excerpt from the July Forecast:

The main theme for July is CRISIS-OPPORTUNITY. This may seem
like a complete paradox however the influences of the times
are creating an intensity that will bring about crises that
present opportunities for major, sudden and complete change.
“CRISIS” is defined as a “decisive or crucial moment”.
“OPPORTUNITY” is defined as “a chance for advancement”, (in
this case a chance to advance to a higher level of
consciousness).

More than ever it is crucial to learn to rely on the
constant inner securities of opportunity in the midst of any
crisis, as it is just around the bend especially in these
times. In fact, opportunity almost requires a crisis to
precede it, in order to break the old patterns apart, as
completely as is necessary for permanent change.  Whether
from the inside or from the outside, crisis will present an
opportunity for transformation of some kind. Just remember
that a crisis need not be feared as a negative or bad thing.
If you see crisis as an energy that carries with it an
intensity to move, or transform in a big way, you will be
less fearful and anxious about it.

This month is loaded with opportunity. What is required is
to put the ego fears aside and to move forward when
opportunity presents itself. The opportunity in a situation
may not always be clear at first especially when the focus
is on the crisis.  Ask spirit to show you the real
opportunity behind the crisis and then be present and
conscious so you can recognize it when it shows up. The real
opportunity will be the transformation that will unfold in
many ways in your life.

This month is loaded with pitfalls as well. There will be a
great deal of chaos and confusion as your mind tells you one
thing and your spirit and heart another. They may fight with
each other, personality vs. essence. Give essence the floor
as it will win in the long run anyway. Watch blaming others
or blaming your circumstances and creating a story out of it
that continues to be fed. This is the do or die time frame
and the forces that are pushing this opportunity for
evolution of consciousness are ruthless and relentless. The
faster and more completely you can get with the program of
not letting the false personality have any say in how things
unfold, the easier the transition will be. This is not an
option. The decision was made a long time ago collectively
that this would be the time and here it is, like it or not.

In the midst of chaos, unraveling and confusion, the
discipline of focus is helpful. Focus counteracts chaos and
helps to organize energy. Even if the focus is not related
to the areas of chaos, but rather connected to spiritual
practices, cleaning the house or getting things on your list
crossed off, it will still help you to manage the chaos
psychologically and help you to ground yourself and feel
less scattered. Watch also for mood swings and fatigue mixed
with high levels of energy and enthusiasm that could lead to
either depression and lack of motivation and meaning, or
impulsive manic behavior. There is a bit of insanity
connected to these times that will require all of your self-
discipline to counteract.

This is a perfect opportunity to transform what you need to
transform. Sit with the choices that come up for you in a
crisis and be spontaneous but not irrational or impulsive;
take calculated risks and see change as a positive
opportunity at every turn.

Remind yourself daily that if you are at the receiving end
of someone’s reactionary behavior; anger, projection, blame,
praise, envy, demand etc., that this is not about you but
rather all about them and their process. At the same time,
if you find yourself in reaction to another, look inside
yourself and identify how this may be all about you and not
at all about them.

Just know that many buttons are being pushed in a big way
this month and reactions will go from being higher centered,
loving and open hearted to downright angry, nasty and
aggressively judgmental. Remember that this is the false
personality talking and has nothing to do with essence. If
things get too intense, take yourself out for some alone
time in nature and above all, try and be with people who are
on the same page as you. If you find yourself in a
reactionary state, do not judge or self deprecate, but
rather set strong boundaries around how much time you give
the false personality for its little tantrum. The learning
is about how quickly you can move out of these experiences
rather than eliminating them completely. We are only human
after all.
