Making Cake and Thinking Of Bali

I am making a zucchini chocolate cake and packing for Summer Solstice Celebration in New Mexico. But I am really thinking about Bali. Even when I am in the moment, I can also be in Bali. It is a tiny island in the Indonesian chain, but it has more than 10,000 temples. It's a place of devotion and spiritual amplification. I am beyond excited to go there in August and host and teach a retreat in the magical north part of that island.


I have been talking to people who have been there. One woman said it brought her husband and her closer together in a way that she wasn't expecting. Another women I just talked to returned after 6 weeks of traveling there by herself. She said it's the easiest and safest place to go and not have a place to sleep that night. The people are wonderful and they become your friends for life. If you go back, they will remember you and take care of you. And she was so amazed at how easy it was for families with multiple children to travel around. The Balinese love children and are very accommodating. This makes me happy.




Recently I was drifting off to sleep and I dreamt that I was at one of the underwater temples. I was seeing through the eyes of a statue that represented some deity and feeling very at home. I have said it before, I think I was a helper in the creation of the earth - especially the oceans. So I am excited to go back to such a clean and healthy ocean (they have some of the best snorkeling in the world in Bali) and remember just what this planet and all the elements here are capable of as far as beauty and healing and partnership with us in this once in a lifetime retreat. I hope you are coming. There are few spots left. Info and registration is here. If you want to save $100- 250, contact me to find out how: progressiveprophetess at gmail.

I Can Do All Things

Not too long ago I was reading the scriptures hukum style and I opened to Paul's letter to the Phillipians. Chapter 4. Verses 11 and 12. These are the two verses that come right before the sort of well known verse 13: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

They are super interesting. Here they are:

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 

They are cool scriptures in and of themselves. I interpret them as being about the neutral mind. Paul says he knows how to be hungry and how to be full, how to rough it as well as how to take the luxury liner. And he has learned to be content in whatever circumstance.

What is super interesting to me is that verse 13 follows these: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

Most people think of needing Christ to strengthen them through rough times, the times of want. But I see now that Paul is saying that sometimes we need Christ to give us the strength to be okay on the luxury liner as well.  I have experienced this time and again as I have had to expand--because my soul wanted to and I called it in--but my subconscious mind or body did NOT like the changes. It can be a real shock to the nervous system to suddenly have a million dollars land on you when you are used to struggling for hundreds. I know some of you think--try me, I'll take a million dollars, or a bigger house, etc-- but if you look at lotto winners, the statistics about them shows that they struggle. Most of them end up not happier and broke again within a few years. This is because its not always easy to be content with whatever circumstances, especially if you are programmed (by your family, your culture, etc) for struggle.

So I guess I'm writing this to encourage all of you who would like to receive, or who are resisting a great flow and abundance. It requires strength! But you can do it through Christ.

And Christ is ok with you taking care of yourself. Self-care is different than selfishness and is essential for this age when cold-depression and dis-connection from the Self is the most common problem. It kills people. Who otherwise could have made a huge contribution.

So anyway....

I feel that a great flow is coming to those who want to build Zion. Specifically a flow of money. As of right now, that's the economy we live in. It takes money for proper self-care, and then to build Zion. And it is just as easy for God to deliver $10 as $1000000. It's just a bunch of zeros.


Allow. Be content.

Be grateful and teachable.  Let's do all things through Christ.

Sat Nam.

Steadfast



Lots of women are jealous of the men's program I am running and wanting something of that depth for them.  I don't blame them.  I love women, and many have gotten a taste of this kind of thing at my intimate retreats, but I haven't had any sort of advanced mentorship program for as of yet. I have been collaborating with God on what it should look like, and it didn't come until today. So of course, I am blogging about it right now.

It's called STEADFAST. It's an advanced mentorship and women's circle. It's for women (obvi) who feel like I am a teacher or mentor for them and they want more. It's not just about Kundalini Yoga, but all the other things that I bring, not least of which is my love for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the building of Zion right now. It's for powerful women who are spiritual luminaries in their own right (even if you may not call yourself that) who are doing this great work and feel the need for sisterhood, more learning, connection, and support, and steadfastness.

Of course, a background in Kundalini Yoga will be a prerequisite--at least Level 0 or Level 1. Anyone without those trainings but with a solid practice will be considered on a case by case basis.

It will begin at the end of June. The enrollment is limited because it will be intimate. All other details about the program will be shared individually. So if you want to know more, contact me to find out more. You know where to find me. If not, leave a comment. Blessings and Sat Nam.
