Last time I wrote, I think I mentioned that Maui called me back.
I wasn't super keen on traveling halfway across the world to do whatever it was I was meant to do or experience. But I listened to the call, and went.
I kind of hyped it up in my mind and started expecting some perfect, magical experience.
My trip started out delightfully with a very full and magical day in San Diego with my friends, The Mystic Misfits (they are divine, spiritually aligned dudes whom I super adore- more on them another day). Then I got to Oahu and saw two of my favorite healers and friends before hopping yet another flight to Kahului, Maui. I drove a very fun VW Golf on "The Road to Hana" which is a VERY winding, curvy, nauseating road to drive. I get to my cute little cabin in the middle of the countryside in Hana... and I say "I'm here! Now what?!"
I decided I'd go directly to the place I had seen in my visions... the place I was supposed to go and sit and meditate and "meet the gods". At least that's what my main guide said.
I felt rushed. The park closed at 6PM. Someone had told me I needed to find this particular (and well hidden) cave. I started exploring, went down a couple paths that led to nowhere... and stepped in some shit. Literally. I have started asking myself "Why has this happened for me?" instead of TO me. I couldn't fine a good reason! :-D I cleaned off my shoe and hiked up what is now my favorite bit of land in the middle of the Pacific.
I had to release my expectations.
The next morning- I went back out to where I was "supposed" to be. I couldn't chill out. The water was crashing against the rocks and sounded rather nerve wracking. I sat there in disbelief. "Why the fuck am I here?!?!" I had come all this way...
I looked around and noticed how beautiful everything was. Truly Stunning.
Sitting still wasn't working for me. I got up and began dancing with the wind. I started hearing the whisper of Source showing me ways to move, correlating with the directions and elements. For some reason the directions especially- have always been an undercurrent in my work. Perhaps this was exactly why I was there.
I felt so free on my volcanic rock. Things clicked into place.
I remembered... there is no supposed to be. It still took me an entire additional day to settle in and Just Be, IN IT. In Flow. In the vortex. I finally remembered to release my expectations and my last day was the most soul moving and freeing.
The truth is though, I had let my expectations get in the way of my ability to manifest what I desired.
It's an example of hanging on to something that doesn't exist. I've learned over the years that holding on tightly can ultimately lead to stagnation and the opposite of what is wanted. There is no such thing as a perfectly planned experience! My most glorious and awesome days are the ones where I've allowed myself to just go with the flow, accept what comes my way, let down my guard, let go of my perceived control.
Recently I noticed MANY people are struggling with Actually manifesting what they want. Luckily I was able to connect with my inner guidance system to release myself from expectations.
It takes more than a vision board and a wish held close to your heart. What you need is a multifaceted, energetic shift. I was able to channel three powerful lessons in recent months, that will guide you through what it takes to return to Earth (basically what I did in Maui), release the pain (also what I did in Maui), and receive the abundance (wow, yes... on my last day in Maui- with only minutes to spare- I found the Perfect location for my 2019 retreat and things are clicking easily into place... because that's how abundance flows when you are open to it. MORE on my retreat coming soon).
When I was in Maui, I felt moved to create a magical little snippet for you.
I've been on a soul journey the past few days. I wasn't able to check in with you as I usually do. Perhaps you are wondering what the heck I'm doing all the way across the world from my hometown in upstate NY?
Let Me Start At the Beginning
I visited Maui last year. I was super fortunate to be able to stay with a friend who had just moved to Lahaina. We decided to take a little mini trip out to Hana. I found a cute studio cabin and it just Happened to be open for us to stay a couple nights. I fell in love with the area. I felt so spiritually connected and joyous there.
Fast forward to about a month ago. I had been considering taking the same trip- however due to typical financial concerns, I decided it wasn't the best time. Then, during a meditation shortly after that- I heard my main spirit guide tell me I had to go back. I had resistance around this, and asked why. She said "You're going to meet the gods." I found that to be a bit humorous and unlikely, but I made a bit of deal. I conveyed back to my guide that if the place I stayed at last year had a vacancy for me at any time in February, then I would go.
Well, wouldn't you know that Source energy created exactly what I needed. The Universe truly does conspire FOR us.
I set up my trip only a few weeks before departure. I didn't know what I was going to find during my few days in Hana, but I can tell you I'm truly rejuvenated, mentally cleansed, energetically cleared, and soul soothed. I got to visit my favorite spots, connect deeper with the land and sea, meet some amazing travelers and locals, and find the quiet within myself that I seem to always be seeking. It took me nearly most of the time I was there to calm my mind, body, emotions, soul. I've faced some intense things in recent months, and found my energy to be frenetic, but Hana truly brought me back to Earth.
The Three Main Lessons
Return to Earth
Through physical grounding, I was able to reclaim my body-Earth connectivity and balance. The Earth takes away the pain and brings our cells back into alignment with positivity and a good flow of chi. While a lot of my meditation work is focused on energetic grounding, I'm seeing the massive benefits of immersing one's body with the Earth body. Winter time makes it tough, so I encourage you to at least get outside for five minute. If you can travel somewhere warmer, the value and benefits far surpass the financial cost. Get Grounded!
Release the Pain
During my time in Maui, I specifically worked on letting go of the past. Things I had already worked on but were lingering, and making my heart ache. Things that were old and stagnant. I focused on pain caused by various relationships in work, romantic, and family situations. It was intense, but for me- more like a final letting go. I was able to see how a lot of the grief had already been released. I just needed to wave a firm, energetic goodbye. It is so powerful letting go of the pain. Make space for the new, gorgeous and delightful things you desire!
Receive the Joy
I find myself currently moving into the receiving mode. My affirmations have included "I'm open to receiving" for years... but now I can Feel it. I am IN Body. I'm IN Heart. What I mean by that is, I'm staying connected to how certain experiences past and present impact me. I express myself, I allow myself to experience emotions instead of burying them. I seek out and embrace fun and joy. I believe I am enough and that I deserve all that I desire. Receiving Joy requires a certain level of confidence and faith in one's self. It's time for you to get in that zone too!
I created a little video for you when I was out at one of my favorite beaches (Red Sand Beach). The sound is a little blurred by the ocean waves, but audible enough. I hope you enjoy the imagery and words!!
