On Following the Heart this Thanksgiving

About a month ago, my son came to me, eyes searching to connect with mine, and said, "Mom...? I don't really want to eat the Turkey..." My heart swelled with the Empathy I felt in his voice, and finding that one of my own heart strings had been plucked in Resonance to his statement, I empathically returned, "Yeah, Honey... I don't really want to, either..."
Sometime within the past year he had approached me with a similarly softly and sensitively pronounced statement, "Mom...? I don't really want to eat the Cow..."
Each time he has stated such, something within my own heart has echoed his sentiment. Although our energies are oftentimes very different of course, one thing that we seem to share is a deep empathy and respect for Life, the animals in particular. Not to say that we are vegetarians, but meat has quite a rare presence in our home for sure.
This week has been very difficult for me, as I am sensitive to energies in general, but particularly to the energies of the mass consciousness of the society that I was raised and still live in. "Everyone" getting ready, buying frozen or fresh Turkeys, the frenzied thronging of the grocery stores, the busying the streets.
The conflicts arise inside of me, the battle between- the cultural conditioning I received in my upbringing, and the voice of my own Heart, wherein the Wisdom of God and my higher Self lies. We are taught from a very young age in this world that all Self-Guidance and Inspiration that rises from the Heart must be discouraged in favor of logic, Reason, mental process. However, as one Awakens to and begins to pursue a path of Spiritual Knowledge, no matter what religion it would seem, we are then told to be in Silence and listen to the Heart because that is how we connect with our Mother/Father God. In psychological, self help and healing modalities employed for self transformation and tapping our highest human potentials, we are told to listen to the heart as well for therein lies our Truth...
So where does one go, what does one do when the 'whole world' is busying about celebrating a holiday that their Heart and Highest Self is not in Resonance with?
Because I felt so deeply this conflict of not really wanting to go along with this so called "turkey day", I considered a lot the meaning of this holiday called "Thanksgiving", its history, inherent meaning, and why is is purported to be an occasion to celebrate in this country, and the hows and whys of the dissonance I felt with it.
Thanksgiving was initally a three day event in 1621 because the Pilgrims were so thankful for their first harvest and to the Native Americans who taught and helped them to figure out how to grow food here. The Native peoples showed an incredible amount of Selfless Love and Generosity to "uninvited" settlers in their homeland, even after so many of them had been tricked by the English and taken back to Spain to be sold into slavery. This included Squanto, who happened to be "sold" to an Englishman, and who upon being able to return to his homeland found all of his Pawtuxet people had died of Eruopean plague! I am hoping that the Pilgrims, then, were very much aware of the fact that they all could have died of starvation had it not been for the visit of the Wampanog, Samoset, who had gone and enlisted the help of Massasoit of the Wampanoag, the people that Squanto had joined when he found all his people gone.... Yes, intellectually, I understand all of this- and the reasons that the last Thursday in November was declared a national holiday by President Lincoln.
However, during the many, many decades that have passed since this historic day and since this Proclamation, something has been lost, although I can not be certain if it was even there to begin with, as I was not there. I am speaking of the reverence for the Life that has been taken to nourish the lives of all who are partaking in the meal, that is including the vegetable plants who equally share a yearning of Life's self expression.
It feels as of what this holiday is really about for Americans now (yes getting together with family which of course is nice) is "pigging-out" until one's gut "busts", and then sitting on the couch to watch football. Oh, yeah, and having "leftovers" for the next week.
I think of all of the Turkeys, and how much they must have suffered, been kept in pens, unable to move about, being force-fed and "fattened" on grains and other things that are completely foreign to their natural diet in the wild, how they were mercilessly slaughtered, then packed, frozen, shipped to a grocer, and how many thousands will sit unsold in a grocer's freezer, or rot in a refrigerator case. And really, I just don't want to eat that. Niether apparently does my child. As I have tried in this past week to convince myself that I should do this because "it's what we do" on the last Thursday in November, the conflict inside of me only raged harder.
Because we have so much in this country, there is gross excess as a result of taking way more than is needed. We take more than we need, we devestate the land, as a species, and still there are those who are starving. How can this be?
We waste, thoughtlessly, completely disconnected from the Sentient Life whose Life was taken through the portal of physical death, so we can continue to "live". Though, most humans are not really living, not to the Highest Path and Purpose of their Soul, not according to the Divine songs of Truth that resonate within their Hearts, with the Joy of being alive that is our Divine Blueprint and our Birthright.
We are a society, for the most part, of connive-thrive-drive robots, brainwashed by our corporate controlled government to be obediently submissive to what we are told, which is to not think for our self-to follow orders- "do what you have to do"- to work-consume-retire, for a moment, then die. Nearly every Thanksgiving dinner I have been to in my life was celebrated by rote. I have rarely remembered anyone offering to say Grace, or any prayer of thanks for the food, until I, as I grew older, initiated it- and then the participants bowed their heads mostly to "humor" me, not that I sensed one heart open up to really feel it.
Desensitization is a sickness of the world we live in. We move too fast and use the wrong organ to think. I "wanted" to eat Thanksgiving dinner because that's how I was raised, not because that's where my Heart is. My mind says, "You must do this because it is Tradition." My heart says, "I do not need a dead bird on my table, one day a year, to fold my hands in Prayer and Thank my Creator that I am here, to be Thankful to All of the life that has nourished me and kept me alive on this Beautiful planet."
I do acknowledge that all living things must die in order to support the continuance of Life on this planet. It is the way physical life is set up here. But, I choose not to participate in a Tradition for Tradition's sake, especially if the quiet voice inside of me says, "No." I even tried in one last ditch effort to do what I was "supposed" to do on this day, and offered my son, on our grocery trip yesterday, to buy and roast a chicken. He firmly said, "NO!" WE moved on...
So, today, I choose to be Still, to breathe into and BREATHE OUT my social conditioning, and follow the guidance of my Higher Self, the part of me that lives with God, my Essential Self, the Voice of Which resounds in the Center of my chest. I mean, isn't that what we are all here to do...? Really.
From my Highest Heart, and In Service to All Life, I send

Notes from my Journal: On the Full Moon 11/10 and the 11.11.11 Ascension Gateway

Text copyright 2011 Rev. Ursula Carrie, sacred_earth@yahoo.com

Welcome to the New Earth, our precious Home in this Galaxy of stars. We Lightworkers have been amplifying the Violet Flame of Transmutation within our beings for many years, many lifetimes, now in preparation for this Glorious Transformation of darkness, fear and separation into the shifted Paradigm of Light, Divine Love and Universal Consciousness. For this shift in Awareness within the Human Mind/Soul to take place, many breakdown of current economic, political and other systemized energies of the Dark Ones have needed to occur- for it is in the dismantling and dissolution of the Old that a new form may have its Birth.

We Starseeds and Awakened Souls have been working as One Body, one Group Avatar of Light, first in the shifting and opening to the awakening within our own Individual Soul Selves and projecting this Heart Light to the many places upon this Earth where Healing was needed to occur. I see the expanse of my current life ‘till now, and know every moment, every synchronicity, every message, every teacher that was brought to cross my path that has prepared and catapulted me to the moment of this 11.11.11 Ascension Gateway. I have been releasing past life misdeeds, enacted out of fear, sorrow, isolation, sadness that culminated into a misuse of my Divine God Power upon this Earth. I have forgiven, deeply, with Divine Perspective, as one who could only be in and react to situations through the old paradigms of a Love Beacon that had been tainted by the Darkness on this Earth… But we have Ascended into Fifth Dimensional Consciousness, knowing that All of Mother/Father God’s plans for this reality were always to be a world of Perfect Divine Love, Divine Light and Divine Truth. It does begin in the Within of Each Soul Being in their Physical Form- the awakening to Truth. Yes I know there are as many kinds of Truth as there are individuated consciousnesses in existence, however I speak here of the Truth of Universal Consciousness, that truly, even though we are separate beings and meant to experience ourselves as such, that in Truth, we all emanate from the same source of creation (as mysterious as that is), and the acknowledgement of such is the key in saving ourselves and our dear Earth from self destruction. The primary question, as I have asked myself being, “What is my Truth?” The answer, which is found in the Heart, may or not resonate with the dominant paradigm of mass consciousness- fear, materialism, consumerism, scarcity, isolation, competition, anger, blame, unbalanced attachments to manipulation and control… Once this Truth is allowed to speak and be heard, I happen to know, requires a tremendous amount of courage to be followed.

We have a great opportunity before us in the past several months to ask ourselves many questions to clarify what each one of us envisions as their own Life Experience on this Planet? What do we hold as the Sacred Vision for the Plants, for the Trees, for the Birds, the Four-Leggeds and Mammals and Fishes of the seas, for the Beings so small we rarely can see? But we feel them. How in this New Earth, that we are Now creating through these thoughts, do we envision our world? It is said that ‘in the beginning was the Word’, but before the Word was spoken, there was Thought, the most powerful element in creation, Intent. We intend our lives, the circumstances, the chance encounters, synchronicities that bring all of this world into the form that we claim to see before our eyes. And it is called Illusion. Our experience here grows and changes as many others with whom we are co-creating are also intending it. This has been called Morphic Resonance. It is called many other things, the Hundredth Monkey effect, and so much more.

We as a race of Intending beings became enslaved many millennia ago to those known as the dark and we forgot, by conditioning, our Divine power to create. We forget who we were, and what most of us had come here to do. We did not remember the vision of Earth as a Holy place in which we (mostly) 5th Dimensional Beings had to come to create, play and love, to experience ourselves as Creator God-sparks in a 3rd Dimensional playground of physical human form. And although the polarities of darkness/light were necessary in this play, the scales of influence had become severely unbalanced, creating a spiral of destruction, rather than regenerative creation, in this world. For untold thousands of years the knowledge of these inherent abilities in every human being was suppressed, only available to the few who held power over the many through intimidation and fear, and to those who became the Spiritual Masters in Earth’s History who worked very hard to go against the grain and follow the messages of light that they were receiving in their Hearts.

But, now in this Timeline of accelerated gifts of technology, spiritual and transformative information is available to the masses like never before in our human history to help the seeker develop their latent abilities to Know, to Perceive, to Understand. Since the beginning of our physical existence here we had been seeded with the codes in our cellular structure and the information that were to be opened and awakened within those who were ready at this pivotal moment in Earth’s history to ascend their consciousness back Home to the 5th dimensional, Unity Consciousness Awareness. It shall be only this, a Knowing that we are all one in this fabric of life and that every thought and action we perform as individuals resonates on a scale much larger than our limited perception or language can explain. Those who have done, or begun, this Work and risen up through the Assistance of many Ascended Masters, Guides, Archangelic Presences and Teachers, are redirecting this sacred intent back to Mother Earth and to all of her beautiful sentient Lifeforms, to restore the original Divine blueprint of Love and co-creative Abundance, Joy, Connection and Unity amongst diversity. Does not mean that there will never be polarity here, or that there will be no physical deaths in order to give or sustain life, for that is the nature of the experiment here. Nor does any of this mean that earthly Life will be without challenges, as in this Earth School, it is the very presence of challenges that assist each of us in Growing our Soul.

This is what I have so affectionately called the Church of the Sacred Earth, the way I first heard these words whispered to me so long ago. A “church” is (paraphrased from Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary 10th Edition, Ó1999) {“ a building for public worship; a body or organization of religious believers; a congregation”, the roots of which mean 1) “of the lord” from the Greek “kyriakos” or “lord, master” from the Greek “kyrios” 2) “hero, warrior” from the Sanskrit “sura”}. What does this mean? Why is it so named? Because, We are the Movement to this higher realization that we each are the Energies of Divine Light; that each one of us is an Emanation of our creator; that each of is a container, a vessel of Divine Love and Truth; that each of us is a Warrior on the path of our own Soul’s evolution and enlightenment; that in this present timeline and incarnation we have chosen to experience the creation of ourselves in this place of public worship of this experience that we call Earth; and that this World of Sentience is Sacred, period. It is a Blessing to be Here, challenges acknowledged, I am thankful.

You are invited to pray/meditate with us, as one group avatar, now and in the coming year, as we collectively lay down a path of Light that those who will choose to come into Being on this New Earth can experience and follow. Many of our young children have already arrived with the intent to carry on what we have begun, bringing enlightenment to the next level of soul evolution on this planet. We are all assisting this Beautiful and Precious Mother Gaia to resurrect and restore Her original Blueprint of Sacred Heart Love and Joyful co-Creation. It seems like a monumental task, I know. But in the Now, present moment, each moment of Deep Breathing, we remember to focus on our Hearts, to be Still and Know our very own I AM presence on Earth. I mean, I know where this is all headed as much as anyone else does, and what do we really “know”? For the Time being, what I do Know is that I must stay in my Heart center, with my feet planted in the Earth, and with the other half of me in Spirit, doing my best to make the most of this Beautiful Gift of Life that I have been given here on this Planet. That I may leave behind for my child, for the generations to come, a World of Love and Beauty and co-operation and high creativity, so that he and all the others may also come to know themselves through their experiences on this planet as the Eternal creative bits of blessed God-stuff that they so Gloriously Are, Here and Forevermore.

In the Highest Good of All Beings throughout the Universes,
I Remain in Service, and in Faith,

A Personal Note on Healing and Planetary Service

Text copyright 2011 Rev. Ursula Carrie, sacred_earth@yahoo.com

When I had finished my training as a Soul Realignment/Property Realignment Practitioner, I went through a long period of self inquiry as to how I was going to “put myself out there” as a practitioner of this Akashic Record soul level method of healing. One of my questions being, “What are to be my fees be for this service?” In our course materials and coachings by the teacher of this modality, it is suggested that our fees be a reflection of our self esteem, our self worth in short. I had some trouble with this.

For the past year I sat with this, have been working with myself, with my higher self, in relation to past deeds in my most recent past life here. I am sure that most healers on the planet today can relate to past life memories of being ostracized, perhaps tortured and killed by the communities that they served. The world at those times were not ready for the simple “feats” of healing and seeming magic that those who were tuned in to a higher wisdom could offer to those humans who were ill, and suffering, like the midwives who were tortured and imprisoned for lessening a woman’s pain in childbirth; like the healers who helped through what we now in this age call “Reiki” or faith healing and the like. Some were victimized by this, and some attempted to turn this feeling of powerlessness into the abuse of power. As my inner knowing of my past was confirmed for me by the very intuitive Soul Realignment practitioner who conducted my own realignment that set me off onto this path, I was one of the ones who, through my own fears, isolation, sadness and rejection by my community, even though folks did not hesitate to surreptitiously seek me out when they wanted what I had to offer (and never being a victim in any of my existences), had evolved at that time into an abuser of my own God power. This is one of the things I had to sought to work out in this lifetime.

Many healers can relate to this, the hiding of one’s self, the reluctance to “put oneself out there” because of this issue if abuse of power that is so prevalent in this world today, in our governments and political and economic systems, false gurus and spiritual teachers, power plays in the simplest of relationships amongst family members. And, although a Healthy Ego is vital to knowing our Self as the Individuated Consciousness that each one of us is, it is that other sort of Ego that leads to destruction. It is part of the imbalance of our world that many of us seek to rectify through Right Action in our relationship with our own selves, and with the world.

Recently, I had joined in with my sisters and brothers of the Children of the Sun Foundation (www.childrenofthesun.org) for the seven weeks of beautifully articulated meditations and journeys that lead up to what was called the 11.11.11 Ascension Gateway. I had been working with a process of Remembrance, Self-Love, Self-Forgiveness and Release for many years already. It wasn’t until the week that was leading up to my participation in the Rite of Passage #6, the Rite of Selfless Service, that something very deep finally opened up for me, in my Heart of hearts. I felt Compassion for myself for the very first time in this life. I felt Love. I felt deep Forgiveness. I, at a psychic and soul level, made an intent and sincere decision to stop punishing myself for my past, for all and any transgressions I may have made in all lives past and in this one, for any abuses of Divine God power. Meaning, that I decided that it was Time to lovingly release all of the punishment I was holding towards myself, for abusing the Gifts I had that had been meant to Serve humanity, selflessly, with Love and in Humility. This was no easy task, as it is often said, “the most difficult one to forgive is one’s own self”. Wow.

So, why would one write all of this down, then share this very personal process of Becoming with “the world”, so to speak? Well, I feel that it is in the sharing of experiences with our human family that we are fulfilling our Sacred Roles as Mirror to one another. It was this way when I read some of Lynn V. Andrews’ books years ago, reading of her experiences and training with the Medicine Women, for example. In reading her words and following her experiences as they unfolded, I felt that I had a mirror to my own experiences along my own Shamanic Path that was accelerating.

We really can no longer cling to the ways of isolation, of clutching our spiritual experiences to ourselves, thus leaving ourselves in a place where we always feel alone in what is blossoming within. This old way will not serve the building of the community of enlightened beings that we are destined to become, if the planet, at least humanity, is to survive Earth’s Changes. There are far too many who are going through the same and similar processes, feeling as if they are the only ones that these very mystical and beautiful things are happening to. The Modern Visionary, Barbara Marx Hubbard, speaks of this- of the Isolation that is part of the cultural identity of Americans in particular. The culture I grew up in. The part of my Cultural Inheritance I am more than willing to let go of, promptly. And how is this done? By breaking out, reaching out, taking a leap of courage- and speaking about it. I am so appreciative of the ones who had the courage to do so before me, who wrote their books and shared their stories. Thank you.

So, I came around to this question again, “How do I set my fees for work as a Soul Realignment/Property Realignment practitioner?”

The first consideration I had was this: I am a single parent and the sole provider of food, clothing, shelter and education to the Beautiful being of Light that asked to be Present on this Planet through me. This is a Big consideration.

The second consideration was the acknowledgement that: In a practical sense, on another very practical physical world level, we are living in Times when folks don’t have as much to go around, in the money sense. And a lot of people who really want and need this healing at their soul’s level will often be making a choice of either paying the electric bill, or having Healing work done. And in order for them to gain the perspective that, “The bill money is flowing and is coming. All is well.”, they must first be assisted in releasing the Blocks and Restrictions on their Soul’s record that are hindering their growth to this end.

The third consideration was: Understanding what “money” is. Money is a form of Energy. Someone gives of their physical/psychic, etc. energy and time, and if the recipient is not also giving of the same in exchange, then green paper is given in a corresponding numerical amount, depending on how much effort/time was given to them.

The fourth consideration was: How much are other soul realignment practitioners, that I have seen, charging for their services?

The last, and most earnest, for me was this: I have, and have always had, a deep gnawing in my gut to be of service to others. My nickname as a child was, “Nurse Urs”, because whenever anyone exhibited signs of being ill, I would rush to them with a cool cloth to put on their head! My mother tells me a story of when she had me in beauty pageants as a wee one, and I spent almost the whole time as I waited to go up on stage (which I was so excited about and couldn’t wait), comforting the little girl ahead of me in line who was crying and terrified…

I want and need to serve, that’s what I am Here for, for All of the Life that needs me, whilst being able to care for my child and my family.

So then this process leads me to the notion that, one must wonder, “What happens in a Soul Realignment reading/healing?” I mean, it is a fairly new modality to emerge into the world, certainly not as familiar as things such as Reiki (which does not even scratch the surface! I know, I have trained as a Reiki healer, too!).

What Do I Learn/What Happens in a Soul Realignment Session?

The Realignment?Clearing process of Blocks and Restrictions on one’s Soul Record, for me, usually involves 4-6 Hours of Intuitive Investigative work on my part. This work is done before the Client Consultation via telephone, which is an additional 1 Hour, as well as an Mp3 recording of the call in which I present the findings to the client.

The first part of the reading consists of the Soul Profile, which includes:
· Your Soul’s Group of Origination
· Your Archangelic Realm(s)/Energy Centers of Training
· The Spiritual Order(s) you participate in
· How many Guides are on your Spirit Guide team (if any negative guides are present, they will be cleared by the Realignment process)
· And more…

The second part of the reading consists of the Blocks and Restrictions present on your Soul’s Record (which, by the time of the phone consultation will have been cleared, instigated by my prayer request, and conducted by the Akashic Records Guides, and your Own team of Guides, teachers and Angels)
· Vows and obligations
· Curses, pacts, bindings, spells
· Contracts
· Attaching, stalking and or possessing negative entities
· Golden Web chakra tears
· Emotional and/or mental body Programs
· And more…

In essence, what I am doing is putting on the hat of spiritual detective. Through an extensive, intuitive questioning process of my Akashic Records Guides, I am unearthing the Soul’s story, as written in their Akashic Record. There is plenty of information available on the internet, or books at your local library that can help you know what the Akashic Record is.

PLEASE NOTE: The listed examples of Blocks and Restrictions are just that, EXAMPLES. Not every Soul’s Record is the same. That would be impossible, and certainly not the point of Individuality. Also, the blocks and restrictions may have been acquired by the client either in their present lifetime, or in past lifetimes. What I seek, as a practitioner, is not only to discover the block or restriction itself, but the choices made by my client, through their Free Will Choice, that created the situations, habits, emotional and/or mental patterns that led to the creation of the block/restriction in the first place. It sounds like a big pill to swallow but once the person understands and Knows it in their very being that the situations have been created by Free Will Choice, the inevitable results I have seen so far, is that they feel so much more empowered to choose differently in the future. And they can do so without the burdens of past unconscious choices weighing them down. There will always be challenges, that is the very Nature of Human/Physical life, but we have the power, much more than we realize, to choose and recreate our Life Story in the Present.

Donations/Fees: As an act of Planetary Service, to make this much needed healing available to a broader range of Humans seeking Enlightenment and Freedom, this is what I wish to be my offering. {Bear in mind that most Soul Realignment Practitioners, to my understanding, charge anywhere from $150-$195 for a basic soul Realignment, and my fee had been set at a lower $144, in correspondence with the Sacred Numbers of the Ascended 144 Crystalline Grid of the New earth, and the 144 points of intersection on our Golden Web.}

The new Sliding Scale Donation/Fees are as follows:
· Soul Realignment Consultation (adults 18 & over) - $108 - $144
· Soul Realignment for our Children (children 17 & younger, but no younger than 8 weeks of age)- $72 - $108

AND- Don’t forget The Property Realignment!

There are so many Earthbound Spirits, Ghosts, and Poltergeists roaming over the Planet who simply can’t, or don’t want to, move on into the Light. Also, portalways to other realms that were opened and never closed, and Negative and positive Entities that can become attached to our Living Spaces and properties, and so often these unseen influences can really muck up the Vibes of our Home, causing things to occur, or discomforts that we just can’t explain- no matter how many times we move the furniture around, paint, etc. There are other things I research and clear in a Property Realignment Reading/Clearing.

A Property Reading and Realignment calls upon Our very Mother Earth, the Elemental Beings and other Helpers in Spirit with a special prayer request, and with the Assistance of the Akashic Records Guides, to clear the Akashic record of the Home and Property. Yes, the Earth, and all locations upon Her, has an Akashic Record, too! I consider the Property Realignment a VERY IMPORTANT service in the Raising of Earth’s Vibration- through them, We are clearing the Earth herself of destructive negativity!
· Property Realignment/Healing- Sliding Scale- $50 - $72

* NOTES on Donations/Payments: All of the Pay Pal payment buttons on my blog reflect the top portion of the Sliding scale. If you are going to send a donation/payment that is less, please send me an e-mail at sacred_earth@yahoo.com, stating your intentions and your order information as listed in the requirements on the “Readings/Order Info” page of my blog, and I will tell you how to send the payment through your PayPal account. Checks and US money orders are also accepted.

Divine Guidance and Blessings on Your Path.
I look forward to Hearing from You.
