Igniting Love Through Our 7OM Sacred Wedding Ceremonies

Possibly our favorite part of this whole magical enterprise we are building together under the 7OM umbrella is officiating and co-creating beautiful wedding ceremonies.

As with last week’s gorgeous wedding in November, we sat down with the betrothed (what a fascinating word) and really get to the heart of who they are, and what’s important to them before we start creating together. We include and create rituals inspired by them, and inspired by the inclusion of people that they love and want to be part of the official ceremony. And every single time we find the most perfect balance of the personal and the communal.

I believe this is why so many people in the “audience” at our co-created wedding ceremonies say that it’s their most favorite wedding ever, including sometimes their own (!!) Because every piece of it is created with intention and attention, from the desire to create a visceral and meaningful experience for everyone involved.

Last week’s wedding, on the most magical labyrinth in Ojai, was equal parts transcendent and grounded holiness. The theme was Timeless, the level of Authenticity that radiated from our bride and groom brings a smile to our faces a week later, the mother of the bride was our most favorite bluebird temple member. While the groom’s family came from the Jewish tradition and the bride’s family came from the Christian tradition, we created a ceremony that spoke to all.

And exquisitely, it was the bride's father and brother who built a chupah with their one two hands — a chupah being a wedding canopy that is often used at Jewish weddings. It was the first ceremony I’d personally officiated under a chupah and it was simply sublime. The sacred structure and container made it so clear that this experience was taking place intimately between these two special Souls in a very sacred container, and at the very same time, it was being blessed and witnessed and cheered on by their families and community.

Just like the best marriages.

As we write this, we hear that Australia just voted yes to Same Sex marriages. Chills throughout our whole Beings as we continue as a planet to declare that Love is Love is Love. How perfectly perfect for our November month of Love...

If you have Questions or are curious about our ceremonies you can find more information about our officiated weddings here. And if you identify as LGBTQ and are looking for a love central officiant, we would love to hear from you on this very auspicious and beautiful day!!!

The Untold Story of 222

Sometimes there just aren’t words.

I feel quite tearful even writing this right now.

 

On Saturday, during our journey to Atlantis,

as I’ve mentioned a couple of times,

there were 12 people on the journey in real time,

and it was very clear that that number was precisely the number

that were supposed to take the journey together the first time.

 

While we were in the gorgeous temple of Light,

there were specific light beams that people were invited to go to

and to stand under and to receive specific codes and numbers flowing through…

and while I was sharing these instructions, the number 222 kept flowing through my lips.

 

Over and over again, I said it.

 

And at the time,

I knew there was a reason for it,

but I didn’t know what it was

— this is the beauty of these journeys and indeed this work.

 

I am, in many ways, on the treasure hunt with all of you,

and that’s what makes it so fun. I have crazy access behind the scenes,

and one of the greatest gifts I possess is trusting that what comes through is coming through

for a reason that even my conscious mind may not understand, but I recognize the energy of it.

 

After the journey, I went to get a mani-pedi (of course) and the number 222 kept showing up.

It literally flashed at me from inside one of the utensils and again and again i saw it all day.

 

I’ve been hearing from many of you that you also have been tuning into that specific number.

In addition to there being 12 on the initial journey, there was a very specific formation that took place inside the temple where everyone was invited to stand under a specific light beam and receive their codes. It was very clear that the formation connected in some way to the Kaballastic Tree of Life. But I couldn’t remember if there were 12 or 10 aspects to the Tree of Life, so yesterday, I googled the words Tree Of Life and the Number 12 to see. And guess what came up?

 

I have chills in my feet even sharing this.

Every google find that came up was a specific stanza from the bible,

and guess what number the stanza was?

You guessed it. 

Revelations 22.2

The River of Life
1Then the angel showed me a river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2down the middle of the main street of the city. On either side of the river stood a tree of life, producing twelve kinds of fruit and yielding a fresh crop for each month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3No longer will there be any curse.

It seems that the Tree of Life and the number 12 are part of a very specific and incredibly beautiful stanza that essential closes the whole Bible. My heritage is Jewish and these passages were all completely new to me. And what’s even more remarkable is that it not only seems to be the closing pages of the bible but the very stanza described is pretty much a direct description of the journey we took together. 

If you have done the journey, you will 100% recognize almost every aspect of the Journey it in these words, and not only the scene described, but also the notion of Unity and Forgiveness and how in essence, the divide and the fact that the “curse” as the stanza puts it, is over. I have tears in my eyes as I write this.

The world is shifting quite rapidly, and the veils and thinning and thinning and thinning. Make no mistake about, we journey to these other realms to heal and inspire and to bring back and anchor the frequencies to these lands. We do not jet off too disassociate from this realm, we jet off, so that we can come back clearer, more inspired and aligned and with the Knowing in our Souls that we here in this lifetime to Know Joy and Love and Freedom. What an incredible reminder of the back-end support we have, every moment of every day. Bless you. Bless Me. And bless this Journey we are on together. And of course, if you are resonating with the number 222 and you feel the calling, join us on the journey to Atlantis. It is available at any time. Just like these frequencies of community, connection and divine divine transcendence.

Epson Salts, Lavender, Rosehips, Hibiscus


Essential Oils: 
Frankincense, Myrrh, Geranium, Rose


One or All Of The Following Crystals: 
Rose Quartz, Blue Lace Agate, Amethyst

________

Light a candle.

I love love love this piece:
It’s a song to the divine mother healing waters
and holy mother of heaven. 


You can either blend the salts and oils and florals together in advance - that’s its own beautiful ceremony — or take them individually and add them to the tub as the waters are running. Add two drops of each essential oil, and one scoop for each salt. Be ceremonial about this. invite in the vibration of reverence. Slow down. Even if you feel anxious at the prospect of slowing down, just do it anyway — the deliciousness doesn’t always come during the experience of ritual, particularly if you’re used to moving very fast. But it will come. And it will nourish you. And it will bring in the magic. 


Add the ingredients.
Luxuriate in the music.
Or feel anxious with the slow pace -
it doesn’t matter :)
Just allow yourself to follow it anyways. 


Then immerse in the sacred waters.
Bless them with your presence.
You can speak something aloud,
but you don’t have to.
Your simple willingness to do this ritual is enough.


Get in the Water. 


Take your crystal.
Put it in your belly button.
Or hold it in your hand.
And allow whatever emotions
want to come forward to come forward. 


You are in sacred space.
You are in Holy space. You are You.


Feel the presence.
Feel the prescience.
And allow and allow and allow.


Bathe for as long as you like. 

Ask questions of the Universe if you like.

Play completely different kinds of music if you like.

Just keep anything electrical away from the water.
That’s a different kind of holy that we don’t need to access today.

Bless the waters.
Bless your Celestial connections.
And allow yourself to marvel at the information
that comes in in your dreams or in the next few days.
You are a priestess of the waters. Not even a doubt about it.

~ And so it is. ~

This Is How She Rises

Indeed, this is how we all rise.

I find it remarkable (and of course also not) that just hours after our posts about reclaiming Friday 13th as the day of the Divine Feminine, that we see the outpouring of the #metoo memos and sharings and posts.

This is quite literally the divine feminine reclaiming itself in action. And I sense now that this is why so many of us were unwittingly recommending water rituals and bathing rituals and desperately running to the sacred waters — I took a salt bath every day last week. I just wanted to be in the water ALL the time.

Why?

Because the sacred waters are where we heal the shame and the guilt and the pain and the violations relating to the sacred sexual chakra. Eons and eons and eons of violations. This lifetime. Past lifetimes. Collective lifetimes. And of course the abuse of this Earth. The actions of one man were the trigger for this last week. But the timing was in no ways accidental. 

And here’s the thing — there is starting to be a conversation online about what actually constitutes abuse? Whether the multitude of outpourings of #metoo sharings somehow water down those who were “actually” attacked or abused vs those who were simply “harassed.”

Ladies and gents, this in itself is insane hierarchical thinking.

It comes from a linear brain. It comes from someone imagining a court and wondering how to prove who is wrong, who is right, who should be punished? None of this matters in the realms of the energetics, because it’s not about punishment, it’s about healing. If you felt violated, you were violated. Simple as that.

And when we do the deep deep work with this stuff, we understand that there are layers and layers and layers to it all - that as much as we may be angry with the “Patriachry” or with those who abused their power, there are also layers of ourselves that are angry with and turning on ourselves. Day after day. without even realizing it.

How did we let this happen?

Where was our Voice?

How did we not scream?

Did we use our bodies as an energetic transaction to procure safety or sustenance?

Did we violate ourselves?

These are just some of the thoughts going through many of our hearts right now and this last one is particularly harmful because it smacks of the “you don’t have a right to feel violated because you collaborated.” But once again, tenderness. You were scared. You were in your own form of protection mode and you did what you could to keep yourself safest as you perceived it at the time. There is no hierarchy - only your own experience to be unpacked and held and loved. 

Be gentle.

Hold space for your own precious heart.

Whatever is coming forward, know that energetically this moment in time is about bringing it all up into the Light. The shame, the fear, the anger, the embarrassment, the retribution.

Whatever it is you are feeling - let it be FELT.

Let it be witnessed.

The secrets that live in our cells and cause us sickness and exhaustion and pain in our current lives stop having an effect on us when we allow them to be witnessed and held in love. 

The lower back pain of the past few weeks. The pains in our hips. All related. All connected. All bringing to Light and ultimately to integration and balance. Lifetimes and Lifetimes of collective imbalance coming to the surface. As a collective and as individuals there is a very clear pattern to the Awakening of this planet and it is this — bring anything old and shadowy and shame-inducing that has been hidden in the dark recesses of our minds and our Society to the Light.

Let us look at what we were not prepared to look at previously. Let us hold each other in Love and compassion as we share our deepest shames and pains. Let us tell each other "I hear you. I see you. I honor you.” 

This #metoo outpouring is without question a revolutionary act and an evolutionary act. This isn’t about making men bad and women victims — that’s also old patriarchal thinking. It’s about how we are choosing to engage with the experience and what we are currently witnessing for the most part is the creation of a space in which hundreds of thousands of people are being witnessed and held and honored. It’s about starting new conversations. It’s about bringing this stuff into the Light.

And as we do so, we all Rise. We all benefit.

This isn’t a witch-hunt against men. Far from it. And it’s important that we know it inside all our hearts. This is how we rebuild. You cannot just build on the old. You have to pull up the floorboards. You have to see that which has lay festering under the carpet. And then together create a new foundation. This is the invitation we are extending to ourselves right now. And this is how we heal and clear and step forwards.

Together.

What a time to be alive.

What an incredible time to be alive.

Why Friday the 13th is one of the luckiest days of the year

Yesterday was a Friday which usually means I am at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa doing individual Illumination Sessions and Soul Readings. But yesterday I was not at the Spa at all because not one single person had booked an appointment, which at this point is pretty rare. As I marveled at it, the lovely priestess on the front desk, who I was chatting to, mentioned that it’s Friday 13th and everything was a little quieter than normal. Because people are…. superstitious.

And holy mother of Misunderstandings.

It made me chuckle when I heard it.

But it also made my heart a little sad.

Because in many ways it is emblematic of why we are in the midst of the chaos that we are currently witnessing as a country and a planet.

And here is Why:

Friday the 13th is an incredible incredibly magical day for Beauty and for Prosperity and for Luck.

It's a profoundly Lucky Day.

It’s the day of the Goddess. The day of the Divine Feminine Re-Membering itself. It’s a day for Sensuality and Deliciousness and rest. It’s a day that every single one of us should go to the proverbial Spa. It’s a day to release anything old and to sing in and bring in your heart’s delight. Truly.

"What?" You gasp. "A day of Beauty? And Prosperity? And Luck? But Friday 13th is the stuff of horror movies," you say. "It’s a day to stay in the house and double cross your chest, whether or not you are even catholic, to protect yourself against bad luck and ghoulies and ghosts and misfortune."

And we say, aaaah, the patriarchy has trained you well. The religions and the individuals that were scared of magical ladies have trained you well.

There has been so much fear relating to the Ways and the Powers of the Feminine that it was slandered and attacked and made “dangerous.” And yes, it’s dangerous — it’s dangerous to an old way of being. It’s dangerous to the soul numbing, embodiment fearing status quo. It’s dangerous to eons of patriarchal attempts to keep “witches” and "goddesses" and "priestesses" with magical powers at bay.
It’s dangerous to those whose very power rests on the fact that you, male or female, forget your own.

Because once you remember who you are, once you remember the magical and beautiful connections that you have, the game is over. 
Hierarchy is over. False power is over.

Our world and our earth is at a crossroads. Fires are raging. Hurricanes are slamming. The Power is Out in more parts of the country than ever before. We are being asked to go back to basics and to really, truly look inside ourselves and our cultures and our community.

You are being asked to wake up, to wake up to the power that lives inside. And you are being asked to remember that you are supported in doing so. Allow the old superstitions to fall away. Allow the years and lifetimes of witch burning to release from your cells. Allow your true power - the power you have possibly been dimming and hiding, or eating and drinking and numbing into oblivion — allow it to make itself known again.

Allow it to ignite now. Allow it to ignite. Allow your inner divine feminine, the place of magic and miracles and beauty and bounty and deliciousness to be ignited and illuminated and informed anew.

Allow yourself to remember that Friday 13th is in fact a glorious nod to the 13 moons of the lunar calendar. Allow the 13 grandmothers to light and guide your way, and remind you that you are Safe, and that it is safe to be magical in these times. Allow yourself to remember that any superstition, and certainly any superstition in relation to Friday the 13th is a reminder of just how powerful you actually are, and how powerful this day can be.

And if you have ever done a full moon or a new moon ceremony, know that this day is a powerhouse of a culmination of all those ceremonies.

Join me in reclaiming this day as a day of Celebration and Delight. Join me in Remembering the ways of true majesty. Join me in remembering who you are. wherever you are in the world, whether you are male or female, whether your heart hurts or rejoices, do something delicious today. Make a wish. Light a sparkler under the night sky and speak to the stars and the moon and the heavens. Share your dreams. Share your Visions of Prosperity. Share your Visions of Prosperity and Peace for all. Share your heartache. Allow it to be held and received by the loving bossom of this Earth that you may not be able to see, but you can certainly feel through the ethers. Let this be a day that you truly truly remember that you are not alone, that you are held, that you are loved. And that the chaos and the insanity that we are witnessing on this earth at this time is emblematic of the awakening we are witnessing in real time.

Engage in a ceremony tonight. Particularly a bathing ritual if you can. If you know me well, you know that anything done with intention is a Ceremony. Cook a meal. Light a fire. Run a bath. Or even sit down and watch your favorite tv show with a glass of wine, but toast to the day of Magic as you do so.

Let this be a day that you can Believe in Possibility. That is the greatest freedom imaginable and that is how we collectively and individually shift this paradigm and this Earth. That is truly how you "Fuck the Patriarchy." which is not the kind of comment I would normally share, but it has its own magic to it. Choose to fuck the Patriarchy, not with anger and disdain nor separation, but with Deliciousness and Delight and a Remembrance of something so much Vaster and so much more Beautiful.

Let this be a day that Lights us up. Let it be a day that we Rejoice in. Let it be a day that we know in the deepest part of our Hearts that an appointment with an Oracle and a Magic-Maker who has access behind the Veils is something we look forward to all year.

No more hiding. No more Fear. No more superstitions.

And then let’s plan to make the next Friday 13th, which happens to fall in April 2018, a day of profound beauty and deliciousness. I’ll see you at the proverbial Spa. And for some of you, my friends, I’ll see you at the actual Spa. Book your appointments now. Cos they will sell out way in advance. And so it magically is. 

Aho.

We Will Rebuild Anew - This Is Why We Came

If you are human right now, it feels in many ways like the apocalypse is here.

Right here. Right Now. Every day.

So much pain and terror. Mother Nature. Las Vegas.

A collective PTSD for many the likes we have never known.

Energetically, vibrationally, cosmically, there's a method to the overall madness. It’s not that these events are being orchestrated by the Universe; it’s that a major major major vibrational shift is occurring on this planet. There is a tangible awakening, a newness, and a literal Rebirth. Many are going through profound ego deaths and ultimate Rebirths as we speak.

I spoke in the Temple of Illumination last week about the labor process. If you knew nothing of child brith and you just walked into a room during labor you would be aghast at the pain and the torture and the turmoil a mother is going through. And then the baby arrives.

We are the baby.

This planet, this country has been so profoundly out of balance for so long, the wounded masculine is being called back into alignment. And holy mother, do we have a lot of work to do. Collectively and individually.

We need to start by holding and loving our men. Changing the dialogue. Encouraging tenderness. Feelings. Feminine qualities to be embraced. It’s essential. There is no ignoring at this point.

But in many ways that’s the bigger picture. On the ground, what to do when we are watching the news or on Facebook and feeling overwhelmed.

1) Take a Breath.

2) Get off Facebook. Switch off the television. If you are not directly effected by specific events, work out ways or a way that you would like to tangibly support those effected and take an action step or even two. Then step away from the coverage.

Notice whether you are glued to reports of the victims — and ask yourself why you are pouring over the stories and the details. It is heartbreaking. There is no question about it. But we need to be really clear about the integrity of our own motivation — for the most part, as the news networks share stories of those who passed, we are in essence slowing down at a car crash to see what was occurring. There is an element of voyeurism to our collective interest, and we need to own it and also understand that vibrationally to immerse in the stories and the pain and the suffering creates continued and ongoing suffering in our own lives.

We need to be clear headed right now. We need to address the issues at hand. We need to be compassionate. Oh so compassionate.

We need to understand that Loneliness in its myriad of forms is responsible for so much of the suffering we are witnessing. On both ends of the equation.

We need to create deeper, more connected communities.

We need to be kinder.

We need to be kinder with ourselves.

We don’t throw out spiritual teachings in the times of disharmony and panic. We anchor them even more deeply.

Kindness. Stillness. Breath.

These are crucial right now.

Take action. No-one is suggesting you don’t take action. But ground yourself first.

Small Things You can Do:

Step away from the news. Step away from Facebook. Take a moment to honor the Souls of those who have passed in a way that is meaningful to you. But know that immersing in the pain and the stories doesn't necessarily help anyone.

Take a shower. Scrub with some salt. Get some essential oils and have a healthy sniff. Smelling Salts worked for Aunt Sally for a reason.

Allow yourself to cry.

Allow yourself to feel your feelings.

Many times, when there is a collective rage, you are not just feeling the fear and sadness of the event, you are having memories or wounds in your own psyches that have remained unprocessed triggered. Allow yourself to feel the pain and the sadness. Allow the emotion to come through and be experienced and even witnessed by another. Cry it out. Scream it out. Let your rage express itself — safely — but let it be expressed.

One of the most crucial ways that this planet is awakening vibrationally is through the feeling of previously disowned feelings. As a society, we have made a day-to-day specialty out of abandoning our own Souls and our own feelings and filling the voices with distraction, addiction and shopping. The onslaught of event after tumultuous event means that there is no denial possible any longer. Your feelings, your grief, your sadness — old or new — must be felt. This is how we transmute. This is how we heal. This is how we create the New.

Be gentle with yourself.

Choose one act of community and kindness today.

It’s ok to feel despair. It’s also ok to feel Joy.

This World is breaking open. The structures are breaking down.

We will rebuild anew. This is why we came.

What's Your Number?!

This life and this Journey is in many ways a treasure hunt.

There are puzzle pieces and clues that will guide your way again and again and again. And when you see them, they will bring you a sense of calm, a Remembering, a Knowing deep in your Heart that you are on the right path. These signs are particularly important when you are in the midst of surrendering, when you are scared and anxious that you might be going nuts and simply shirking responsibilities etc. These signs are sent from the wider You to the human You to show you that all is well and that you are on track. These numbers are different for everyone and you will notice yours repeating again and again in your life.  

We spoke about this with the The Balanced Blonde on The Balanced Blonde Podcast . For Jordan that number is 201 and for me me and for my family, that number is 4711. It is beyond remarkable how it shows up for us. It was the name of my grandmas favorite perfume, it was our family phone number growing up, my old shamanic teacher had the 4 digits in a different order as the last four digits of her phone number. The Sound Healer who connected me to the solfeggio sound healing frequencies that now run through me also had the same last 4 digits in phone number. When I moved to Ojai, on the day I moved into my new home, I went to the local Ralph's to buy something and joined their membership program. I actually don't think I've been back since but guess what the last 4 digits of the 13 digit membership card number was? 4711, baby. In the last 3 days, I have made 3 separate purchases for the finding maker pop up this weekend. $11.47 and $110.47 and then the third purchase included the check out dude accidentally swiping another product at Michaels when he was moving a bag and guess what the total came to? $147.17.


Immediately after the podcast recording with Jordan, I went to IKEA and purchased a toilet brush. True story. Guess what 2 numbers were on the side of the brush? 4711 and 201. You truly cannot make this stuff up. It is beyond logic. But when you watch it and notice it for long enough, you will be reminded again and again that you are not alone, that you have a tangible team of magic makers through the ethers working with you and sending you little signs.

✨What's the repeating number that helps you remember the magic? ✨

We wanna hear!!!

✨And happy 10-4-17!✨

A day that brings me great Joy for obvious reasons.

September's New Moon Energy Report: Money Money Money

7OM SEPTEMBER NEW MOON ENERGY REPORT

Money Money Money
Last week we shared a prescient energy report relating to money and boundaries — 3rd chakra stuff — it’s still super super relevant, and we wanted to give you a sneak peek and entice you to come join us in the Temple. It’s pretty beautiful over there!! 

________________________________________________

T H E R E  I S  A  P O W E R F U L  T H I R D  
C H A K R A  A C T I V A T I O N  R I G H T  N O W

....which is pretty hilarious because it rolls straight off the back of the Second Chakra upgrade we experienced just weeks ago. And energy isn't linear, so it's not a done deal that this is what would come next. But clearly we are working our way through the chakras because the third chakra activation that is happening is being felt far and wide. 

How is this manifesting and what does it relate to?

Your belly. 

Money. 

Boundaries. 

Dominion over your Life. 

Your sense of Empowerment and ownership over your life.

Where are you laying roots? Real, tangible roots?

And where are you being pushed off balance by other peoples' needs and requests?

Right now, all these arenas that fall under the auspices of the third chakra are being addressed and cleared and nudged into the Light.

It might be uncomfortable -- viscerally so. You might have had digestive issues, tummy pangs, sludginess. But equally, you have felt a sense of body freedom - a lightness in your limbs and your joints as this stuff works it way out. 

You might have felt compelled to dance and move your body while driving in the car to the radio like never before. You might be oscillating between a sense of complete freedom and subsequence fear. You might be noticing the spaciousness that is coming into your body and then you might be making choices to sabotage it a little -- you might be eating more carbs than normal etc etc. There is no judgment here. Eat carbs up the wazoo. But just allow yourself to see whether there's a part of you that is scared of the shifts that are taking place. 

They are exquisite. And they also ask for a level of courage - this is the domain of the third chakra after all. 

You are being asked to own your Power fully. Actually, you are not necessarily being asked to own your Power fully, you are simply starting to. You are unwilling to put up with boundary malleability / permeability that you may have looked over in the past. You are starting to feel the Roar of the internal No, where previously you would have said Yes and then complained.

There is no more space for complaining nor of victimhood.

You are pulling up your bootstraps and taking responsibility for your life and this is a beautiful beautiful thing. 

You are also being asked to fully understand your worth in this world - it's not that your worth is attached to money or to the money that you are bringing in, but there is a healthy correlation between our confidence in our own abilities and talents and our bank balances. If our bank balances are out of whack, it is a gentle invitation to step in more fully to the knowing that you are amazing and that your efforts and creations and talents are worthy of being financially rewarded.

It doesn't have to be a struggle anymore. This is the message of this time. This is the upgrade that is literally happening in your own Belly as we speak.

Start noticing how money is speaking to you this week.
Notice the coins showing up in funny places. Declare yourself a money magnet. And watch as it wants to pour into your realms. 

Don't second guess it.

Just allow it, with a shot of curiosity, to make itself known to you. 

It will. 

In hilarious ways. 

As with all these energetic upgrades and reports, I have experienced and witnessed it first hand this past week and it is a veritable trip.

Trust it.

You are ready.

Allow tonight's New Moon to harness and harvest new thought patterns. 

Allow this upcoming Autumn Equinox to reprogram you. Allow Abundance to flow through your veins. 

Allow our upcoming guided Journey in the Temple on Saturday to help with this reprogramming. 

And know that it is Time. 

You came here to have fun.

And in order to live your birthright, your 3rd chakra, your confidence, your sense of self, and the way that abundance flows through all need to be tended to and in alignment. 

This is the upgrade that we are experiencing right now.

Know your Worth.

Say No.

Stand firm.

With quiet and calm confidence. 

Watch previously tumultuous energetic ties calm. 
Watch Respect flow through the ethers
In your direction.

It all starts with You.

Respect Yourself. 

You are profoundly Worthy. 

And profoundly Loved.

Over the weekend Nicola led our Temple of Illumination members in our monthly shamanic Guided Journey. This month the theme was Newness.

If we had to sum up it up in two words, it would be Fun & Frolicks! We took a gorgeous jaunt to the fairy forest. But make no mistake about it — It might have been super fun and light-hearted but deep and very powerful shifts relating to the third chakra and finances and healthy boundaries were made.
The fairies are nifty like that. 

Our Guided Journey for Newness is currently available in the Temple of Illumination.
 
Are you ready to join us yet?

Yes. Excellent. 

See you in the Temple.

You're Not Crazy, You're Celestial Podcast Interview With The Balanced Blonde
7om_instagram.jpg

 

If you are super energetically sensitive, the last four to five days might have included one of the most uncomfortable nights/ days/ moments you've experienced in a long time.

It is unfathomably intense.

You might literally be able to feel your system being rewired in real time.

You might notice that everything looks / feels a little different -- even your own he, (I wrote home but we'll leave he for now) even the vista that you look at and drive down every day.

It's all shifting. Or rather your eyes and your spacial awareness is shifting.

You might be burping up the wazoo. You might feel a foginess like no other. You might be experiencing an energetic vomiting from your heart space or your wombspace or your belly. You might feel grief that you simply cannot place. You might be wishing that you weren't even here at all.

It's pretty excruciating. Breath. Take a few moments outside in the cool air. Feel your feet on the ground. Meditate. Cry. Take a shower. Know that you are not alone. And that you are not crazy.

These energetic shifts and upgrades are very real. And uncomfortable as they are in real time, they are also why you came.

You are creating the New Human. And once again, this is not a metaphor.



And just to be clear. It’s not horrendous for everyone. And it doesn't need to be uncomfortable. There are some right now who are flying from the rooftops in joy. But for many, the incoming solar flares on Friday created a profound profound energetic cleansing and upgrade.

It was felt in real time by the many rather than just the few. And it's important to know that you’re not crazy. You are experiencing tangible upgrades to your system in real time. This stuff isn’t going away.

And knowing that you’re not alone is one of the most important ways to take the edge of the experiences and allow the magic to unfold. Because make no mistake about it - this is all for your ultimate joy and deliciousness. No question. It’s just a process.

Join us in the Temple of Illumination every Wednesday, where Nicola holds space and shares more about this celestial awakening in real time. And to help reset or bring comfort today, pop over and have a listen to today’s podcast on The Balanced Blonde where Nicola discusses what is happening in more detail and looks at all things magical, being connected and living a beautifully guided celestial life. Because one hundred thousand percent You’re Not Crazy. You’re Celestial.

7OM September Illumination Report: A Second Chakra Activation, Hurricane Harvey, Book Club + Elixir of the Month

And what a month it has been.
The eclipse, Hurricane Harvey, lifetimes of old stuff being cleared and brought to the surface as we speak. As we enter September, know in your hearts that these shifts and awakenings are very real. The psychic abilities that are opening up more deeply, the intuition, the visceral feelings in your heart space and your feet are all part of it.

The word of the month is Integration. 

You are doing amazingly.

And we have a lot of magic to share this month. The weekly Q&As in the Temple of Illumination are fast becoming a beautiful place to land and receive information on all that is unfolding. If you are not yet a member, please feel free to join us.

As ever.
Scroll down.
Have a peruse.
Know that you are loved.
Very deeply. 

See you in the Temple.

E N E R G Y  R E P O R T

I tread lightly when it comes to events on the ground because they are very real and a lot of people are suffering right now. And it's also my job to spot patterns and share about the bigger picture. Remember how the name of the woman who died in Charlottesville was Heather Hayer, and I spoke of the connection between her initials HH {8-8} to the Lion's Gate portal that opened an influx of awakening energy on 8-8? And once again, we just had another HH {8-8} scenario with Hurricane Harvey rocking this Earth as we continue to integrate the energies of the 8-8 lions gate portal.

Everything we're witnessing on the ground is part of this Awakening and when you open your eyes more deeply to the seeming Serendipities, the patterns start to emerge and emerge. There are many levels on which this is being experienced and teachings are coming forwards, but in terms of Hurricane Harvey, the most prescient in the context of the Awakening of this planet is firstly the washing away of attachment to things; seeing entire neighborhoods of affluent homes completely submerged under water is one of the greatest reminders that we cannot take any of our stuff with us when we die. As a society, we have shown more respect for "things" than we have for our Earth, we have forgotten the ways of Ritual & Reverence and we have transferred our attention to "stuff."

We can spend our entire lives working to amass things and houses that can literally be taken out in a moment's notice. As we move into this new time, any old attachments are literally being ripped away for many and we are being invited to birth anew. With crisis and with loss often comes a super human strength and courage and it's just the strength and courage that we need as we navigate this newness.

The other thing coming through so clearly from this experience is the sense of community, the sense of the walls around our hearts being broken down, and the way we are stepping forward and stepping for each other. The tears that we shed as we see the animals being rescued from waters are very beautiful tears. Numbed hearts are opening. And even if you are not on the ground in Houston, you are being effected by these very Sacred Waters. They are cleansing us. Even though to many it feels like they are punishing us, this isn't the deeper picture. 

 If you're looking for a charity to support on the ground, we are loving Citizens Assisting Citizens. Our good pal Dr. Ashley Maltz is working with them and speaks very highly of them. We are donating $7 from this weeks featured Guided Journey for Sacred Sexuality to them, so if you have been wanting to experience it, this is the perfect time.

Know also, that this week, there was a major second chakra activation. It happened on Sunday night and many many people felt it in different ways. Alchemically, if you have done the Celestial Journey with me, you know that we clear the second chakra with the element of water, so this is particularly fitting. Be super gentle with yourself this week, and if you are a Temple member, have a watch of this week’s Wednesday Wisdom — there is a particular exercise with our boobs (men and women) that we did that was incredibly healing and nourishing and anchoring of this very sacred, very beautiful energy.

And finally, if you are going through it right now, if you are grief stricken, if you have experienced the rug being pulled from underneath you, allow yourself to feel the feelings, and be as gentle with yourself as you can. Crisis brings a surrendering, internal and external, that allows us to break open. And this, in many ways, is what is occurring right now.

Currently this ZOOM Book Club meeting is free for Temple of Illumination members. We invite non-members to join us for our Book Club as well for $22.

We are also loving this new addition to the Temple.

Starting last month Nicola has been dedicating every Wednesday morning at 11am to answer Temple members questions via Facebook Live in the private Temple of Illumination Facebook group. And it has been amazing!! If there is something that you have been thinking "I wish I could just get on the phone with Nicola or have a private session with Nicola" 

— however vulnerable it is — 

...this is the perfect opportunity. 

This week's question was from a mother in the Temple who had been having difficulties with her six year old son. Her question was powerful, and we feel Nicola's answer about the new kids on the blocks who are energetic systems busters could help many more parents out there so we are sharing it publicly with everyone on the main 7OM Alchemy page. View Nicola's answer   and insights by clicking HERE.

A lot has been happening since the Lion's Gate Portal opened on 8-8. Be so gentle with yourselves right now and remember the systems busters are doing their jobs so very very perfectly. All of them. Yourself included.

Come join us in the Temple every Wednesday morning to have Nicola answer your questions and get guidance. If you're not a member in the 7OM Temple of Illumination

It's the Elixir of New Beginnings.

And it works with the second chakra, the sacred sexual chakra, and ignites the frequency of New Beginnings beautifully.

How do the elixirs work? 

Alchemically, they work in very specific ways. If you are energetically tuned or sensitive, you will feel them creating a sense of spaciousness and yesness. But all you have to do is spray them around your Being and your Body and luxuriate in the smell and the feeling of freshness. We do the rest.

The Eclipse Is Over - What Now?
 
2.png
 

As many of you know, there was a huge build up to Monday’s Eclipse. A sense of expectation for some, a sense of anticipation and excitement for many, and also a little bit of fear - some people felt the deliciousness of being complete, but for others the notion of completion brought up a lot of stuff. Some felt they hadn't yet found completion, others felt they weren’t ready to do so. As I mentioned in the Chalk Board magazine piece, our egos like comfort and we tend to like things to stay the same, because as far as the energetics go, we managed to stay alive through everything we have experienced so far, therefore, our egos tell us, so long as we don’t change anything, we’re gonna be safe as houses.  

But as we actually know on a deeper level, change is pretty much the only constant and there is no true sense of safety that the ego can hold onto. With change comes profound profound opportunity, but it can also fill us with fear.

Let me be one of the Voices on the ground to tell you that energetically things are shifting so deeply, energies are quite literally working with our physical and spiritual beings, that resistance to the shifts is actually more painful ultimately than allowing ourselves to flow with them. Be gentle with yourself and know that you are truly doing this perfectly for your own timing and your own Journey. We feel many different things at different moments. The important part is that we allow ourselves to feel them. 

What are these shifts and what did the Eclipse do?

One of the most important things for us to receive from this Eclipse is the understanding that it wasn’t a one day wonder of an event. It was the opening of an energetic portal and the energetic landscape within which we all live is continuing to shift and change. Some of you may have felt the energy flowing in in real time on Monday. I witnessed it first hand, and as many others are reporting, it was significantly more beautiful than many of us anticipated. It’s lovely to see and read about similar energetic experiences from people you don’t know because it clarifies and confirms our own experiences. For me, and for many others, there was an energetic feeling of shift just before the peak of the eclipse, a sense of nausea came through, and then a very very profound lightness. Like many others, I started to cry when I saw the moon and the sun coming together - tears of deep joy. And again, not something that I expected at all, but something that felt incredibly celebratory.

And I could tangibly feel for myself and those in my group at the time, that there was an actual energy flowing into our heart space — close your eyes and you actually might be able to tune into it right now. It starts at the middle of our chests and radiates upward to our throats. There is a literal heat and a warmth, a golden nectar — similar to those funny old commercials for cough syrups that would literally show the golden nectar working on your throat and your upper chest. Allow that sensation to flow through now, for that is was is actually happening.

What is this sensation in my heart space? What’s the warmth I’m tuning into? 

Space is being made in your hearts and in your throat. And this is precisely why for many there has been an accompanying sense of grief or exhaustion these past few days. On Monday we tasted the elation of this energy in real time - it was literally Love and Light flowing in from the ethers. Not as metaphor, but as tangible reality. Many in the US came together and awoke from a walking slumber. People spoke to strangers, communed with strangers and felt a sense of togetherness. For me personally, being on the fields at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, having people quietly find their way to join our group, seeing them lay down on the grass without a word and receiving and receiving and receiving was one of the most beautiful moments I have witnessed in ceremony in a long time. It was potent and powerful and without a need for words. Everyone was welcome. And everyone continues to be welcome. 

That’s great, but what is this sensation in my throat and my heart?

Yes, back to the nectar streaming into our throats and our hearts — it might feel very gentle and celebratory. Its a deeper sense of embodiment and awakening that is happening in your energetic cells. It might feel Light and it also might feel a little overwhelming. If there is a sense of grief or lethargy in the aftermath, know that the energy is working you. Know that any places in which you “suffered” in silence are now coming up for review. Any places in which you were not able to receive love in the form that it was offered is now up for review. Any places in which you didn’t speak your truth - to others or to yourself - is now up for review. It’s not always comfortable. In fact, it’s usually profoundly uncomfortable. But you signed up for a life of tangible beauty and magic, and there is a process of unpicking that happens on the Journey to Sublime Self. 

What should I do now?

Allow this Journey to continue — your Soul is very much onboard with it. And just be super gentle with yourself these next few weeks. Mercury is in retrograde, which isn’t just about technology; it’s about reviewing the past and bring resolution to the present. This is all happening at the same time. For a very beautiful and serendipitous reason — because you are ready to step forwards more truthfully, more authentically and more powerfully. 

I need more support and more information right now - it feels exciting and true but also a little daunting and scary. 

Yes, it’s a lot. But it’s all for your benefit. I spoke in more detail about all of this in our weekly Temple Of Illumination Wednesday Q&A yesterday. These transmissions are normally only accessible by those in our group, but this week, with the enormity of the energy flowing in, we are sharing it with you here. Please enjoy. And please feel free to join us in the group for next week’s private transmission and if you have a question, this would be a beautiful time to ask it.

Congratulations, guys. This is truly an incredible time to be alive. Allow the energies to continue to flow in and watch, just watch as the magic and the miracles unfold around you. 

 

JOIN US NEXT TIME IN THE TEMPLE.

Becoming a Temple member will grant you access to the Temple of Illumination private Facebook group. Within the Temple Nicola leads a Live Monthly Guided Meditation Journey every month via Facebook Live, and also shares monthly writing prompts. Nicola also shares energy reports, a  weekly Wednesday Wisdom Live at 11am where she answers Temple members question in a Facebook Live, insights, magic and many more delicious serendipities that occur in life.
