Allow the Upgrades

You are exactly where you are supposed to be. The more kind and patient you are with yourself, the more gently you will move across these times. You can feel the pressure of change; do not let it ignite you. Let it wash over you in acceptance.

While it feels like we have been letting go to allow the new so much in the past, it feels cliché to even mention it. But truthfully, it was just child’s play practice for what we must do. Nothing old will be the same again, and our minds can race around in fear trying desperately to figure out what this could possibly mean and even enter into pleading negotiations about what it wants to keep. This only defeats us. We can never figure it out. We need only agree, surrender, allow, admit, trust, release, and so on into the light. The most powerful mantra is: I now release all that no longer serves me and am open to receive all that nourishes, and is in harmonic alignment with, my Soul’s purpose. Out with the old, in with the new. Upgrade complete!

Vibration of Trust

Trust is a complicated emotion. Some people take it for granted, while for others fear may keep them from trusting. Trust begins within you and it travels between your soul and human self. It actually is deeply aligned with the vibration of self love.

As you trust in yourself you have greater confidence and you can relax into the flow of potential.

The Mind’s Reaction

When energies start to pick up momentum as powerfully as they have been, the mind tends to get extra-reactive, because it wants to survive and protect itself from the changes it knows are soon to follow.

The mind resists change, because it sees change as something that’s requiring it to give up what it’s always had.

Change is something the mind can greatly benefit from, and it will be on board with change once we let it know that it doesn’t have to give up anything it doesn’t want to give up.

What we are experiencing right now depends solely on where we choose to place our focus and attention.

When we are focusing on surface energies, we’ll probably find ourselves feeling fearful and stuck.

When we are focusing on what’s happening underneath the surface, that’s when deep and lasting healing begins to take place.

We have the opportunity to see many extremes now, both in our personal lives and on the global stage.

On a personal level, the highs may seem higher than ever one minute, and then all of a sudden we get triggered, and spiral into lows we thought we had overcome long ago.

The same thing is happening on the global stage as well. The thing about this intensity, is that it’s a precursor to the big changes that are unfolding now.

What is being asked of us right now is simply to become a witness, an observer.

When we are able to step out of a reactive space, one where we’ve been triggered by our surroundings and move into being an observer, we begin to see every experience as simply feedback, letting us know what we either do and do not resonate with.

Getting into observer mode immediately lessens the charge of whatever is causing our angst. From this space, when we do encounter extremes in our surroundings, it becomes much easier to remain centered and unbothered by it all.

As observers, we empower ourselves to remain centered through all situations (even challenging ones), so that we can fine-tune our knowing of what we do want to create more of.

August 2018 Energies

June, July and August Energies are entwined in a deepening of connection. Connection is just another word for family. From the Earth Family of June, to the Universal Family of July—we meet in the middle of the Heart Family in August. What a fabulous reunion!

In essence, these months have been about strengthening and clarifying the Merkaba; our spiraling, spinning vehicle essence of Light, shown as two opposite triangles, yet that is the simple geometric version.

These months are shifting us into more alignment with the universal laws of the subtle realm. One of those important universal laws is Time. When you embody your presence, the circular nature of Time becomes whole within you. The strength and wisdom of the past meet the potential of the future in you. Now.

We are being tasked to embody a deeper level of connection. Finding the inner courage to forgive, to take a creative risk, to connect more deeply and allow your unique and sacred Light to Love in a new way.

August brings us a beautiful energetic on 8/11 as the Leo energy eclipses what has been released in July. It has a feeling of celebration to me. Celebration is an interesting one. It is a choice and it is internal. It isn’t always a clear path of celebration, it often marks a point of change, like a wedding or a graduation. While those are moments to be celebrated, they also have a bittersweet letting go that accompanies any new path.

The energy of August is supporting us to connect opposites into a powerful weaving of new potential. You are the catalyst for that new potential, Light-worker. It takes courage to let your sacred Light shine, but you are so worth it!  Roar your beautiful Love into the world, even in your silent gaze! Weave your Light of Love with the past and future in your powerful now.

love, k ❤

Happy Summer Solstice

June 21 solstice is an auspicious half-year marker, a time when you can reflect on where you are in life and connect with spiritual fire for the upcoming months. It is a time, too, of celebrating the change in seasons and acknowledging natural rhythms that connect you to the pulse of the cosmos.

As you feel more connected to the natural dance of life, you become more resourced on all levels such as gaining clarity about expressing your purpose, catalyzing your forward momentum, and having the higher frequency you need to be a potent healing force in the world.

Solstice also coincides with the culmination of Wesak season, allowing you to tap into amplified levels of light and blessings available for several weeks each year. It’s not necessary to know anything about Wesak or the enlightened masters associated with it to be impacted by this beneficial energy. Knowing that these energies exist ahead of solstice, however, is of benefit because when the blessings on your radar, you can intentionally invite them in.

Here are a few suggestions to reflect upon during Summer Solstice ☉

First is a connection with the divine feminine – not related to gender but as the source of creation and creativity. Invite a stronger connection with this essential energy. Ask to be shown through dreams and life happenstance how you can be more honoring of the feminine principle. Invite an understanding of where you are out of balance, where you block your own flow, and where you stop yourself from receiving.

Second is a connection with the gifts you as a soul are alive to express in the world. Ask to understand these from spirit’s perspective. Invite a knowing of how you discount your own gifts, how you hold back, or how you ignore natural rhythms when offering your gifts to others.

Third is a connection with the love that naturally abides within you, always present and available. Ask spirit to reveal examples of how this love is the most potent transformational force you have. Invite a knowing of the ways your love helps others awaken, helps bring comfort, and helps show people the way out of their own darkness.

Solstice Blessings,

K ♡

CONTACT in the DESERT 2018

The sixth annual CONTACT in the DESERT 2018 has exciting new changes this year with a new amazing venue at Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa with a fascinating line-up of speakers. With a highly active night sky and sacred land, it’s no surprise that we attract our ET friends yet again, this year. Saturday late night had desert views of the Milky Way which was spectacular!

Like-minded people have come together from all over the world in this intimate gathering to explore the science of UFO’s and extraterrestrial life, ancient aliens, human origins, crop circles, government disclosure, UFO sightings, interplanetary living, contact experiences, and the need to know.

It has been an experiment with new ways to describe the relationship to our extraterrestrial friends of the past and present without encouraging fear. We’ve studied the symbols and signs of sacred sites, and have met cutting-edge speakers, scientists, and explorers excited to share their knowledge.

This year CONTACT in the DESERT added more forums, a 360 Dome experience, new Monday Intensives, additional experience’s lounge, a special Star Saturday night event, as well as a chance to join in the Night Vision Fieldwork gathering and so much more! This year many have embraced the ever-expanding, vibrant, international community of friends old and new, who have all united with one common goal – the need to know.

Thank you to CONTACT in the DESERT and to the fellow beings participating in this wonderful event.

Ganesh: Cosmic Oracle Card Reading

It’s important at this time to move beyond the limitations of ‘it’s not meant to be’ and focus on ‘if this is for my highest good then the universe will move me there safely’. Ganesh not only brings a clear light to your external situation but also helping you clear up any inner conflicts. When obstacles arise, know that they are just reminders that you care about your path and that you have the ability to change your current situation. Ganesh is here to help and give thanks to him for clearing the way. To increase your connection to #ganesh, you could chant in Sanskrit: ‘Om, Gam, Ganapataye, Namaha!

Work Smarter Not Harder

You know how sometimes you hear something new and all of a sudden, all you notice and hear for the next weeks is different versions of the same message from the most random sources and places? And after a while you finally start to wonder if the universe is trying to whack you in the head with an important message?

Well, that happens to me often and it isn’t always that random. What usually happens, is soon after I identify an area of growth in my life, the universe conspires to make sure I have all the practice in the world to move through it.

Lately, that area of opportunity has been rethinking my views around success and dismissing-for good- the word hustle from my vocabulary.

I am generally not surprised when I identify things I need to work on in my life. Hustling, however, was not at all on my radar as a potential problem.

I am in all honesty not a fan of hustling anymore as it has gotten me no where in life and I have given up on working so hard and have absolutely nothing to show for it. I like to focus on working smarter not harder.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been convinced hard work and fierce determination were not only some of my best qualities, but the secret behind achievement. Coming from a long-line of hard-working, successful women in my family, I believed hustling was in my DNA.

It wasn’t until recently that I started to question what it meant to be a hustler and if -buzz or no buzz- this was something I wanted to continue to identify with. It was actually brought to my attention by a friend. All she said was: we don’t hustle, ever. Period. She is someone I not only trust but I also admire personally and professionally. I admit I was a little surprised and didn’t fully agree or understood what she meant right away. I thought, it’s just a cool word to describe hard work, what’s the big deal? But it got me thinking… What is the real meaning behind it and what did that say about my belief systems?

When you do a quick google search, hustle is defined as

1. Force (someone) to move hurriedly or unceremoniously in a specified direction.

2. Obtain by forceful action or persuasion.

Although this has never been how I chose to move through the world, it was very hard for me to imagine being able to achieve or be successful without a sense of urgency and a little bit of force -except I preferred to call it determination. I thought you can’t have one without the other: unless you win the lottery, success needs -at least to some extent- hustle.

As soon as I started to question this idea, I began to notice that all the hustlers I knew, regardless of their success, were also exhausted. Not only that, they were leading lives what were out of sync with the type of life I wanted to build for myself. And I didn’t have to go far to find the trail of negative effects of forceful hurry. I had too, on many occasions, paid the price and had been so burnt-out and unhappy, I had zero energy to do any of the things that filled me up. None of the success and achievement in the world was worth the feeling of not being able to participate in my own life.

That is precisely why I had decided to become an entrepreneur in the first place. I knew I wanted happiness, balance, and I definitely also wanted success. The problem was, as far as I could remember, all of my successes had involved a lot of effort and hard work. Now that I was launching the exciting adventure of entrepreneurship, did I really believe it was possible to succeed without hustle, and without burn-out?

As I started to pay attention, I began to wonder. How many more examples were out there, besides my friend, of success without hustle? What were they doing differently and how could I incorporate that into my life?

The second I became ready, I began to witness men and women I admire succeeding and achieving and making a point of doing it without hustle.

I’m happy to report I found plenty of individuals out there achieving without burnout and living happy, successful lives. These kickass humans not only didn’t glorify hustle, but they seemed to have mastered the art of effort without struggle. As a curious student, I began to take note and model the messages and behaviors I wanted in my life. In that process, I realized a few important things.

First and foremost, dismissing hustle doesn’t mean embracing laziness. Successful non-hustlers don’t promote short-cuts, slacking or procrastination. Quite the opposite, they promote working smart and maximizing our talent, time and energy -effort- without overwhelm -struggle.

Second, most of the individuals who no longer hustle, have been on the other side of the spectrum. They have grown tired of compromising sanity and well-being as a condition to succeed. They are now convinced burnout and unhappiness can be common costs of success, but they don’t have to be.

Third, non-hustlers move through all areas of their lives with a playful attitude. They don’t believe busyness and exhaustion should be worn as badges of honour. Nor that pain is the noblest path towards success. Instead, they believe in effort with lightness, trust and joy.

This brings me to my next discovery. If we talk about trust, we need to talk about letting go. Successful non-hustlers know letting go is not only applicable to spiritual and emotional matters, it is practiced in every area of their lives. For the longest time, I’ve lived by the mantra: focus on the effort, let go of the outcome. When it came to entrepreneurship, however, I wasn’t too keen on letting go and hustling seemed like the safer choice. I didn’t realize that was in total contradiction of my belief systems and more importantly, it wouldn’t work.

Ultimately, we all have the freedom to choose how we want to live our lives and run our businesses. I have made the decision I want to be successful and I want to be happy, and the best way for me to do that is to be like a smooth rock.

I heard a man recently talk about striving to be like a rock in the river. In his hand he had two rocks, one that was perfectly shaped and smooth. The other was rough and full of pointy edges. In the river, water gently moves around the smooth rock and continues to flow with ease. The hard rock, however, is in a constant fight with the river. The sharp edges catch the water constantly, interrupting its flow. Both rock and river struggle.

In life -entrepreneurs or not- we can learn to be like either rock. We will always be responsible for the effort we put into what we want out of life. If we choose to be smooth, however, we can do it with a lot less struggle. And, I am now convinced, that doesn’t need to be mutually exclusive from success. Hustle implies force, like the sharp rock, draining a lot more energy than necessary. Energy that could be best spent innovating, creating, producing, engaging in meaningful partnerships, moving forward.

All of that said, perhaps the most powerful reason of all to avoid hustle is because we want to live happier lives. And aren’t happy people what make businesses thrive?
As a young entrepreneur, I not only strive to be the best boss for myself, I also want to be the best employer. That, I believe, will require a lot of smoothness and achievement with plenty of grace and joy. That leaves zero room for hustle. And that, from now on, is the only way I wish to succeed.
