True enlightenment is nothing but the nature of one's own self being fully realized"
~ Dalai Lama

Indeed, you changed my life forever; and I'm thankful for your love and willingness to share your knowledge of endless possibilities.

It has brought me peace and happiness, along with the first glimmers of personal mastery." -Rachel Findlay
"Working with Alisa has been an incredibly transformational process for me personally. Her unconditional love and complete openness have triggered emotions and feelings which I have been holding back for years. She has also provided me the means and tools to confidently embrace these changes and the overcome my fears. Through the process of meditation I have learned how to calm my mind to the point of where I am no longer overwhelmed by self-doubt and the nagging unconscious thoughts which have held me back a great part of my adult life. I honestly feel truly blessed that I made the choice to have undertaken this process and couldn't possibly feel more indebted this truly amazing woman.Thank you from my entire heart and soul Alisa!" -E.A
Intense Energies of June 2011
June is the half way point of this year, leading to the new energies of 2012. The Mayan calendar does not go past that point. It is not that the earth is going to end, it is the time of a new beginning. We as a collective are at choice in what we create as our future that is why the calendar does not continue. June is a power packed month! It is the cutoff point between the old and the new. There are 3 eclipses in a period of 31 days. Hold on, grab your cosmic surfboard and ride the waves. Everything that is not working is falling apart, what has been hidden is now able to be seen, and our actions and our thoughts are manifesting into our reality at an ever increasing speed. These energies are affecting us on the personal and collective levels. Be aware more than ever at what you are focusing on and what you are creating. Remember…what we pay attention to grows. The first solar eclipse was on June 1st, the second lunar eclipse and full moon is on June 15th and the 3rd solar eclipse is on July 1st with the New Moon.
A solar eclipse is when the moon aligns with the sun. As the moon comes between the sun and Earth it interrupts the flow of energies from the sun. This disruption creates a dramatic reboot in our consciousness. It is like a full shutdown, clearing the old and starting the new. It is a new beginning.
A Lunar eclipse is when the moon moves through the shadow of the earth. This marks a completion of a cycle. Shadow is the unconscious mind, bringing into the light that which we have not been able to see. Hidden emotions and the past may come up to be healed and released. The June 15th eclipse is in Sagittarius, which is the quest for the truth and expanding awareness. The truth can no longer be hidden.
The solar eclipse on July 1st is in the sign of Cancer. This brings in a dynamic energy. Shining the grander picture into reality. Releasing the old patterns and thrusting us into a new beginning and paradigm. Let go of your fears and own your power. This is a transformational energy.
2011 is the year of transformation and abundance. It is also the year of four powerful dates, 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, and 11/11/11. If you take the last two digits of the year you were born and add them to the age you will be this year, the results are 111 for most of us on the planet. We are together, in a cycle of Oneness energy. Our unity consciousness is expanding at an increasing rate. It is important that we now keep aligned our thoughts and actions with a determined focus like we have never done before. What we pay attention to grows.
In Doreen Virtue’s book Angel Numbers she defines the numbers 1 and 111. One-“This is a binary number; every number is divisible by one. We are all one, thereby we’re all associated by thought. Watch your thoughts, and focus on your desires rather than your fears.”
111-“An energetic gateway has opened for you, rapidly manifesting your thoughts into reality. Choose your thoughts wisely at this time, ensuring that they match your desires. Don’t put any energy into thinking about your fears at all, lest you manifest them.”
We are human and the gift of being human is feeling. I know at times that does not feel like a gift. But, remember we are in duality. We must have the yen and yang, the up and the down. I go to fear and sadness at times and this month has been a whirlwind of emotions. I see people around me struggling with emotional and physical challenges on a level of despair they have not felt before. Here is a bit of advice to support you during these turbulent times. When you feel yourself going to fear, I invite you to shift to curiosity. Being curious keeps you in a more resourceful state. When we are in fear our upper charkas close down and we do not have full access to our divine innate intelligence. You lightworker, have the ability to break out of the crystalise and step into your authentic power. As you do, you open an energetic gateway for others to see from the light you are shining. One light in a dark stadium will create illumination.
Your meditation practice is of the utmost importance. It will support you in releasing, aligning and shifting to gratitude. Gratitude is the powerful energy that creates more of what you want in your life. Fear and gratitude cannot exist in the body at the same time, it is impossible.
It is time to use all of your gifts. Be the full time lightworker. We are being called to stand up, take action and choose individually as well as collectively the timeline and the paradigm we wish to create.
