Tribal ReUnion Session – November’s Harvest


Vespers Labyrinth

Originally uploaded by kamphora 

Entry Point: We are 100% healthy on all levels, communicate with ease, trust in the flow of life and believe in our deservability for an abundance of love, connection, friendship, happiness, cash money and sustainability. We have courage and faith to love and be loved deeply. Spirit please, for the best and highest good of all concerned. * The entry point is similar to setting an intention or saying a creative prayer. A ReUnion Process Session illuminates potential unconscious roadblocks in manifesting this intention and utilizes a variety of tools (including applied kinesiology) to assist in the clearing of a path for love and grace to flow. This tribal, or group session was facilitated remotely using my body as a surrogate representing members of the community whom resonate at a mutual frequency. The book, The ReUnion Process by Peter Scupham, INRI is referenced throughout the session notes below.

As the session begins, we are are asked to be aware of the love of our ancestors.

A karmic contract that opens one to betrayal, falseness, conflict or distress has been creating a mistrust within and difficulty in fully expressing unconditional love towards another. A negative emotion associated with ending something or with creating anew is transformed as we receive the Sacred Attribute of Love as Awakening – turning to the power of the sacred, the well of hope. The previously conflicted inner, re-aligns with its Mission of Love (to be Loved unconditionally, to Love unconditionally and to witness unconditional Love between others) as it understand and accepts another Sacred Attribute, Love as Creating – growing what one envisions into existence, life as a process rather than a state. (These Sacred Attributes may be meditated upon by allowing oneself to receive a personal meaning and feeling for the attribute, then radiating it out into the universe.)

The following steps have been facilitated on behalf of the group to initiate the release of these aforementioned forces and the trance of suffocating bitterness/joyless tension/withdrawal/jealousy/inadequacy/anxiety about the future created by these forces: Visualization of this force and trance as a black streak a few inches below the feet that appears to be alive. This streak was pulsed with a forgiving white light, until only light was left, thereby breaking out into a ‘peak spiritual experience’ of understanding that wide open love is our ultimate freedom. Additionally, a dark lump in the vortex of this planet, over the south pole was pulsed with a forgiving white light, until only light was left restoring the earth’s aura of beauty, abundance, lightness and Grace.

We encounter these traumas and dramas in our lives as an opportunity to heal, thereby prompting us towards accomplishing our Mission of total and unconditional love. As the session closes, we are again reminded to be aware be aware of the love of our ancestors. Processing time will complete by December 4th. Love and light to us all!

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great.”
~ Mark Twain

Seduction Through Sensation

There’s no denying it, being a human isn’t always fun. We have this incredible dichotomy in this existence, and in our very beings. We’re primal and ferocious with an amazing capacity to express and experience love and compassion. Millions of intangible thoughts happening within a wondrous vessel. A vessel capable of experiencing multiple sensations at once.

Until my Nia practice began, I was completely unaware of how much time I spent in thought – writing virtual to do lists, questioning past decisions, reliving conversations and stressing about tomorrow. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still in my head quite a bit, but there is more awareness of when I am and how it feels in my body. For a long time I had this odd relationship with my body – like it was my little slave to punish as I saw fit, never really thinking about how my body was responding to the thoughts running around in my head or how much of the present I was missing.

In movement, there is a harmonization of the body and mind. A real opportunity to kick aside all thoughts, worries and stresses and really notice and feel the sensation of what it is to be in your body. To really be in wonderful and in awe of our bodies and senses.

Today’s work involved a lot of “doing” as well as worrying. Worrying about the unknown. Finally, I forced my mind to listen to my aching body that sat hunched over a computer all day and step away from this hamster wheel by practicing Nia. The dancing, moving, flowing, vocalizing, striking, kicking, all of these things helped release the build-up of pressure of the day. But, it wasn’t until I stepped outside into the dusky evening that I felt the angst completely melt. Through my amazing body and senses, I was able to to shift into pure wonder and appreciation of the moment. My evening stroll with RakSi, the wonder dog, began by an envelopment of warmth and moisture, bird music permeating the air, light reflecting upon massive puddles. On I walked, up the hill, sensing the strength in my legs, the softness of the leather leash in my hand. Ah yes, this is what it is to be present, I remember now. What a gift this life is. A “now”, bursting with green and  amazing little bugs illuminating unexpected spaces. On and on, images, sounds, textures. Then one of my favorite senses was indulged. My nose shamelessly burrowed, drinking deeply from the pure ecstasy of a gardenia. As I began to head back home, and my mind started doing it’s “thang”, when a breeze brought me back one more time to the here and now with a beautiful embrace of coolness, filled with the glorious scent of fresh lavender. Quite seduced, I stroked the compact and fuzzy buds bringing fingers to nose and inhaling to my pinky toes. Yes this is now. This is what it is to be fully alive and enjoy the moment. Thank you. Thank you for this. Thank you for the reminder that there are still opportunities for bliss even in the times of fear and suffering.

As you find yourself a slave to your thoughts, caught up in “getting somewhere”, I invite you to take just a moment to notice how this feels in your body. When you are ready for a shift in your thoughts and emotions, consider indulging your senses in a new way. There is great wisdom in the saying, take time to stop and smell the roses. This summer allow your senses to be utterly and shamelessly seduced. Consider that you always have a lover, whether there’s one lying in your bed or not. Gardenias, dragonflies, lightning bugs, peonies, birds, trees they are my lovers. They remind me that I am beautiful just by simply being.
