Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
Mathew 13: 31-32
The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A man takes a mustard seed and sows it in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it grows up, it is the biggest of all plants. It becomes a tree, so that birds come and make their nests in its branches.
The seed of Brassica nigra (black mustard) is the size of a grain of sand and grows to 8 feet tall. It is one of the more dramatic examples of nature’s expansion, but any seed is small in comparison with the potential it holds for growth. With the proper mixture of nurturing elements, any seed expands exponentially beyond all recognition of its humble beginnings.
The energy of faith grows like this because it comes from so much more than just your conscious belief. Divine Faith is your state of being when you are aligned with your unlimited potential as an aspect of God/Goddess/ All That Is. When you fully know that as the truth of who you are, then the creative power of the entire universe is flowing with you and you can move mountains.
When we are in fear and doubt, we have become small and believe ourselves to be separate, disconnected and helpless. How can one puny human have any real power? But when we are in our knowingness of our full divinity, we know ourselves as everyone and everything; we know ourselves as Source. How can Source be anything but unlimited?
The seed knows its path and purpose from its genetic coding and it simply grows, pushing up through the soil without knowing what lies beyond the surface. Your faith is your path and purpose, even when you don’t see it manifested yet. Having faith in yourself is knowing that you are God/Goddess/All That Is and nothing is impossible.

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.

This month I was inspired by the accompanying image from Pixabay.com 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.
This blog is a revised version of a 2015 post.
Have you ever experienced a situation where the plans you carefully laid out just didn’t go as planned and the times when you just decided to wing it went far better than you imagined? I call that the difference between creating from the mental body and being in the Divine Flow and Joy of your Soul consciousness.
Several years ago, I planted some sunflower seeds outside my south facing window. I thought they would be a nice sunbreak as well as a bright spot of color. I waited and waited, but nothing came up. After a while, I assumed the squirrels who reside in the nearby trees probably had a little feast and that was the end of it. Late summer, I noticed some green stalks triumphantly pushing their way up right in the location where I had planted the sunflowers. “Eureka!” I thought. Maybe they were just slow starters.
However, as I watched them grow and mature, I realized that these were the funniest looking sunflowers I had ever seen. Instead of being wide, flat and round at the top, they were oblong. Hhhmmmm. I kept watering and they kept growing until I finally recognized their shape. I had corn stalks! I looked up and realized what had happened. Above that same window, I also keep a bird feeder hanging and some of the corn seeds in the bird mix had managed to land on the ground and take root. Just by following the joy of watching the birds outside my window, I had unwittingly created a whole new garden!
I started thinking about my other gardening adventures, and I realized that some of my healthiest, most productive plants are ones that I took home spur-of-the-moment “just to see how they would do.” Meanwhile, some of the areas that were more carefully plotted out according to which plants should do better in what amount of sun, haven’t done nearly as well. I was reminded of the saying to follow our bliss. When the heart is truly open, the Divine speaks to us most clearly and those seemingly inconsequential inspirations are often the Soul leading us to some new creation we never imagined.
As I expand the metaphor to my other “gardens”, other creations in my life, I see the lesson for me in truly trusting those thoughtless little moments of joy. With less thought and more heart, I look forward to many more surprise gardens in my life.

We all know that Divine Sovereignty comes from within. I was reminded by this when I watched the 2018 movie, Mary Queen of Scots, staring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie last week. I am not sure what I thought my reaction would be to the movie, but the mirror was ultimately about my own sovereignty.
The movie is an adaptation of historical events surrounding the 16th century monarchs of Scotland, Mary Stuart, and England, Wales and Ireland, Elizabeth the First.
No matter how accurate the movie might be to historical facts, it definitely showed the divisions in these countries between Catholics and Protestants – could a Catholic queen reign when the tide of worshipers was swinging toward a protestant majority? It raised questions whether a woman could rule a country as an individual monarch and whether she would still be able to rule independently if she married or would her husband have equal powers of sovereignty. If the husband became an equal sovereign, would the queen’s power be usurped? And, finally, is an angry mob really the ruler of a country?
It finally struck me that all the machinations of these historical facts were to gain or maintain a temporary version of power, a temporary version of sovereignty. If your power and sovereignty are determined by happenstance of birth and can be taken away by a majority vote or by death that is a temporary form of power and sovereignty.
Who do we believe gives us our power or our sovereignty? If the answer is anything other than our own inner self, our God-Self, ourselves as Source, then we need to clear that other belief. If someone or something (government, family, money, etc.) gives us power and sovereignty, what do we do when that is taken away from us, when there is a coup, when the “other faction” wins? Our inner strength, resources, wisdom and love is where our power and sovereignty reside. Recognize the truth of this and allow yourself to fill with and integrate with the highest levels of power and sovereignty of your true self. Having third dimensional prestige and riches don’t define your true power and sovereignty. Only knowing yourself as Source does that.
MAY YOU KNOW YOURSELF AS SOURCE.

I am someone who usually has four different books that I am reading at any given time. I can’t seem to finish one before I see another one that feels like it is perfect for the mood I am in!
My latest library book that is perfect for my mood is 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari. Although I believe the whole book will be interesting, the first sentence from his introduction made me realize why I was guided to read it. He writes, “In a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power.” Wow, love it. When I shared this statement with my husband, he added that he thought clarity is rare. With all the different ways to receive information these days, with the veracity of that information not always known, I believe both of these men are correct.
I hope that we will make it our goal for this week, this year, this century to work on our own clarity.
Let’s look at this a little more closely.
We should set our intention and desire that the clarity of the information we take in as well as the clarity of the communication we have with each other is as precise as possible. We can help ourselves by being open to listening to more than just the sound bites on TV, the internet and even in the coffee shops we frequent. Are we getting information from only one media outlet or only from one particular side or one particular politician? Or do we read different points of view, magazines (yes, I used the word magazine!!), newspapers as well as our twitter feed to see what information is out there? You may say, but Lori, this deluge of information is what Harari is talking about. Probably. We need to take those different views and through conversation with our own wisdom, our own inner guidance, ask to have the information synthesized to the truth from the perspective our soul / our god-self.
In the Standing in the Light® Channeling class, we teach that the quality of the answers we receive from our inner guidance is based on the quality of the questions that we ask. Clarity and specificity of the questions is key to receiving the most relevant and highest plan answers. This clarity, this power, of our communication and conversation with our inner guidance is even more important than the clarity of the news sites we read or to which we listen.
Information from outside of ourselves can be manipulated or spun or might only be part of the story. But, when we are in clear communication with our inner guidance, we are no one’s fool. We are powerful. We are wise.
We teach in our classes that checking with our inner wisdom about the accuracy or wholeness of a news story or other information is not a luxury but is essential for our own evolution. If our lower self ego believes an idea or a thought because that is what we have always believed, well, we may not be taking action from the most accurate information. If we listen to our inner wisdom, we may even hear that we have false beliefs that need to change in order to move forward with a higher version of our plan. We only come to that realization with clarity and the willingness to change to a new truth.
Clarity is power. Clarity is wisdom. Clarity will help us see the truth. Clarity will set us free. Embrace clarity. Embrace freedom.
