Alignment: Stepping Stone To Knowing Our Worthiness

Alignment: Stepping Stone To Knowing Our Worthiness

Many of us are doubting our self-worth. Try as we may, we can’t seem to unlock the experience of unconditional worthiness that would be the first step to manifesting self-love, true peace and sense of our authentic self. In addition, since self-love is necessary to manifest in the 3D world (along with the energies of trust, surrender, detachment and gratitude), a lack of self-worth may keep us from manifesting the new job opportunity, the friends or partner that we would like or the abundance of worldly experiences to help us feel joy and contentment.

Sometimes when we focus so much on our perceived lack of worthiness, we create a downward spiral where we beat ourselves up about not feeling worthy and we start to convince ourselves that the unworthiness is justified. It is not. But, as much as I can say to you and myself that the self-worth is unconditional and comes from the wisdom within, many of us aren’t willing to believe it.

The recommendation for today is to spend your meditation time and self care time allowing yourself to come into alignment with your higher self / soul, with the multidimensional self that you are. Allow yourself to commune with and align with yourself from the physical, emotional and mental aspects of who you feel yourself to be in this experience with the aspects you believe to be more spiritual. You really are you, the totality of you, from the physical level to the metaphysical levels of your being, but it just may not feel that way most of the time.

Start to allow yourself to be in the energy of the divine aspects of yourself regardless if this is you in physical body, you in the emotional body, you in the mental body or you in the spiritual bodies. Feel the divinity at every level. Align yourself at every level. When you know yourself as aligned, you will not judge yourself at any particular consensuses level. Your self-worth will start to take hold more and more. Your self-worth and self-confidence will build. Then, according to the Law of Attraction, the things, feelings and experiences you are trying to manifest will start to build as well.

The following is just one idea for helping to allow in the energy of alignment in order to allow in the energy of self-worth.

I first read about the exercise of the Microcosmic Orbit from the Essential Reiki Handbook by Diane Stein. We teach the Microcosmic Orbit in the Eminent Reiki™ classes. Here is a modified version that can be practiced using any resonance or energy.

Microcosmic Orbit – Torso

The Microcosmic Orbit exercise is used to allow or guide energy throughout the entire physical body. In allowing the physical chi / ki to flow, it helps the energy of the other bodies (emotional, mental and spiritual) bodies to flow.

  1. Start the Microcosmic Orbit by feeling or visualizing the energy of alignment to build at the navel.
  2. Then, with your intention, guide the energy down and backward to the base of the spine / root chakra.
  3. At the base of the spine/ root chakra, allow / guide the alignment energy to flow up the spine. As guided, allow the energy to stop and build, healing blocks.
  4. When the alignment energy reaches the back side of the heart chakra, between the shoulder blades, allow the energy to split into two. Guide the alignment energy down the inside of the arms, to the middle of the palms, to the middle finger and up over the hands to the outside of the arms. Allow the alignment energy to build anywhere along the way that feels appropriate.
  5. At the shoulders, allow the energy to flow back into one stream of energy and flow up over the head and down the crown, over the face.
  6. Allow the alignment energy to flow down the front of the body until it reached the naval center again.
  7. Allow this circulation of energy throughout the body as many times as you are guided. You may feel it building and flowing more quickly as blocks are released.
  8. After you guide alignment energy around the microcosmic orbit, you may want to guide self-worth energy and self-love energy around the microcosmic orbit. As guided, chose any other energy to guide around the microcosmic orbit, too.
  9. You may want to allow the energy to integrate when you are done. No special technique is required to feel grounded afterward. Simply allow for full grounding into your body, as necessary.

Try this exercise for three or four days in a row and see if you start to feel more aligned and feel more self-worth. If you like, repeat the practice more than one time a day. Modify as necessary and allow yourself to know and feel fully aligned and fully worthy of your true self.

Good Things Matter

Good Things Matter

Exploring the topic of 4th Dimensional Love: The Gateway to Unconditional Love, the topic for the Standing in the Light® Gathering and Potluck on July 13, has allowed me to muse about some of the resonances that are included in LOVE. One of them is kindness.

To demonstrate the energy of this kindness, I am sharing with you a song by a friend of mine and favorite songwriter. Let me introduce you to Andrew McKnight, a folk singer from the Middleburg area of Virginia. It would take much longer than a blog entry to tell you all the joy that Drew and his crew have created for me and my family. Suffice to say that a chance meeting in a Border’s book store (that no longer exists) on Pearl Street in Boulder, where I first heard Drew playing live, has led to a two decade love affair with Drew and his music and my family. Besides, what happens around a camp fire stays around the camp fire, yes?

Drew wrote the song Good Things Matter to help encourage us to remember that the small things make a difference in other people’s lives and in our own. Here is the second verse, the chorus and the call to kindness in Good Things Matter.

Tear-streaked boy behind the playground fence, teams picked, game in full swing
his braces hold him back from what his glasses show, he is not good at this thing,
but the bigger boy who plays the game with natural skill and grace,
says “here’s my bat, take my place”
he knows the final score is more than runs across the plate
by the pinch hitter’s smiling face


Good things matter, long after they’re done
good things matter, each and every one
good things matter, no matter how small
good things matter to us all


Linger for the old one’s words, let a child know she’s been heard
ask a wallflower to dance, give mistakes a second chance
smile at strangers on the street, share the table where you eat
leave the extra change behind, fight fear, be colorblind
a kind word to chase the grey, when things are hard find a way,
it all comes back someday

Margret Mead, the anthropologist, said: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”. If Margret had formed music and lyrics to her thoughts, I bet it would sound like this song. Thank you, Drew, for your inspiration.

Good things matter, long after they’re done
good things matter, each and every one
good things matter, no matter how small
good things matter to us all

Tolerance and Acceptance

Tolerance and Acceptance

(Note: For those who were not able to join us for a recent Energy Transmission, please enjoy this transcript of the energy of The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance.)

Welcome to everyone!

We are gathered to expand our understanding and energy with The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance.

When Kris Duffy channeled the Mastery Groups, she would sometimes start with describing what the energy is and sometimes she would start with describing what the energy isn’t! Tonight, we are being guided to start with what The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance is not!

The third dimensional version of tolerance and acceptance is sometimes viewed or feels like wariness. We are told what we should be willing to tolerate and what to accept. Sometimes the energy feels like we are being asked to tolerate and accept begrudgingly or against our will. Sometimes, it feels like there is the energy of “in your face” or that our concerns and what we believe to be true is wrong; that we are wrong.

Many people are only tolerant and accepting of other people who tolerate and accept what they tolerate and accept. It is similar to the situation where someone judges another for not being less judgmental. “I wouldn’t judge you if you were more nonjudgmental like me!”

Ultimately, if feels like those who are trying to ensure that everyone is tolerant and accepting of each other in the 3D world are trying to control the outcome of the situation vs. truly hoping that everyone will be tolerant and accepting of each other, tolerant and accepting of where they are in their evolution and where they are in their understanding of divine truth.

For tonight, The Christ knows that ultimately we have to experience the energy of The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance and that is why we will have an energy transmission to help download these higher frequencies. Having said that, The Christ would like to offer these concepts to help us understand the higher version of tolerance and acceptance.

The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance will feel peaceful and comfortable. When you are feeling it, you will not feel ashamed nor guilty that you might be judgmental of yourself and others. You will feel divinely allowed and detached from other people’s actions. Others get to be who they are; you get to be who you are. You will be able to stand in your power without making other people wrong. You will have the wisdom that even in our differences, love is within all of us, even when the love may not be easily seen in the outer world. Knowing yourself as peace, power, wisdom and love will be the foundation to know yourself as The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance.


In order to experience the energy of The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance, consider this exercise. Allow yourself to get centered and quiet. Take slow cleansing breaths. If you enjoy soft music or chanting, allow yourself to listen or chant along to help get you in a meditative state. Focus on the image that accompanies this blog entry, the lovely image of diverse animals cuddling with each other modeling the unconditional acceptance of each other. Set the intention to know and understand The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance. Try to allow this energy to flow within you for 15 minutes or longer. Consider doing this exercise every day for a week to really allow the energy to integrate. Be at peace and in the grace of The Christ Consciousness version of Tolerance and Acceptance.


12 Chakra Initiation and Merkaba Activation

12 Chakra Initiation and Merkaba Activation

We are offering a 12 Chakra Initiation and Merkaba Activation ceremony in Fort Collins or via phone on Saturday, June 22 at 1 PM Mountain Standard Time.

There is no better way to define the merkaba than the meaning of its three components – MER-KA-BA. These are the three Egyptian words from which this term comes: MER meaning a special field of Light, KA meaning human spirit, and BA meaning body, the physical form.

In our language, the merkaba is Source’s Light, embodied on Earth in human form…the unique expression of Source that you are residing in your physical form and connected to all things.

Activation of the merkaba requires opening chakras above the head. Many people are familiar with the 7 major chakras in the physical body but we also have chakras above our heads. Moving through the 7th chakra to the 8th chakra and beyond is referred to in the eastern traditions as breaking through the 1000 petal lotus.

Activation of the merkaba requires chakras 8-12 above the head to be opened and activated. The 12 Chakra Initiation opens and activates those chakras and the Merkaba Activation connects your original 12 strands of DNA to those chakras once they are all opened. This gives you permanent access to that energy and greatly expands your energy field.

The initation and activation ceremony is $144.

Piercing the Veil

Piercing the Veil

This month I was inspired by the accompanying image from to pen this poem. I hope you enjoy!

Piercing the Veil

I am here to balance the female and the male.
I am one with the powerful sun and the friendly gale.
I stand resilient without the need to wallow nor to rail.
I embrace compassion and wisdom to see beyond the veil.
Come with me as we journey; our experiences will not fail.
