Reclaim Your Light

Nearly two years ago, I sat at my desk to watch an intro to Kabbalah video. I didn’t know it at the time, but this message would change my life, catapulting me toward the path of soul transformation. I knew very little about Kabbalah at the time; my life was unrecognizable after the perfect trifecta of disaster exploded in the same month: January 2015. My grandfather died, my fiance and I split up and my sister was diagnosed with brain cancer.

During my sister’s surgery, an earth angel sent me affirmations from the infamous Kabbalah Centre in LA. These words struck a chord in my soul—the one that was slowly resurrecting from a painful death—and began to plant new seeds of hope in my broken heart.

I recently returned to the notes I took during the Kabbalah video to gain some perspective on my soul-awakening journey. I desperately sought purpose in my life during that upheaval of existence; Kaballah made sense out of my darkest pain and flaws. I was always meant to seek complete soul transformation; God knew this all along. I was sent exactly what I needed in order to be uncomfortable enough to live my soul’s purpose.

How to Solve Problems

Problems sculpt us because they force us to grow. Our soul is here to experience expansion (or we wouldn’t be having this human experience).

If our purpose is to evolve into our true selves, then problems are imperative. Which is precisely why we must see problems as opportunities rather than set backs.

Opportunities to gain deeper understanding of ourselves and others, opportunities to practice forgiveness on ourselves and others, opportunities to rise beyond limiting belief systems and old patterns. And in the case of today’s post: opportunities to deepen our spiritually.

What is Happiness Anyway?

My mother once told me, “Kari, you’re never happy. You are always searching for something better or waiting for the greener grass.” In that moment, I felt like I’d been turned upside-down and shaken until my deepest, darkest shortcoming fell out. And that shortcoming was staring me dead in the face.

It was my very search for happiness that prevented me from ever being happy. But let us first examine this word. The Webster definition of happiness is: feeling pleasure or enjoyment because of your life, situation, ect. Dictionary.com says: delighted pleased or glad as over a particular thing.

 

When we take the common denominator of these definitions, they both define happiness as an effect of a situation, life or even something. And when we look at it in these terms, by golly I was rarely happy; my situations were plagued by “things” that made life less than enjoyable causing me to search for something better with a never-ending, grass-is-greener mentality.

Live in Manual Mode

We often go through life on autopilot without ever questioning our motivations. The beauty of life is we have the ability to shift gears into manual mode.

Manual mode is tough; the road is paved with unknown twists and turns and even bridges are missing that must be built.

Some people never turn on this mode because it is very tough to maneuver. With the option of auto, who would want to learn manual?

The Spiritual Riches of Experience

Sometimes the Universe makes it evidently clear where you need to be; in my personal experience, I am always led to the ends of the earth that will bring me closer to my true self (even if those places are a short flight away).

There is a little-known town outside of Los Angeles called Ojai. The existence of this spiritual retreat remained unbeknownst to me until my lovely Airbnb host in Hawaii brought it to my awareness. As we discussed her past life career as a screenwriter, she mentioned a retreat where Hollywood writers would go to clear their mind and reconnect to their spiritual self (thereby giving their writing a major boost of creativity).

See Someone’s Soul

I had the absolute blessing to visit Denver over the weekend, a city that is quickly capturing my heart (along with a certain Denverite).

We visited Core Power Yoga for a session that my body seemed to not be having; the Denver elevation made for little sleep the night before and we had a busy day of sightseeing by way of bicycle. Nonetheless, I went in with an open heart and a determined mind. An hour of child’s pose is better than no yoga at all.

I am home now.
My soul sits pleasantly
Right beside my heart,
Knowing very well
That the love I searched
And searched for
Was actually here
In my own being all along.
My journey in this lifetime
Had to pass from
Student to teacher
And back again
To learn the fates
Hanging in the gates
Of this earthly plane.
Now heaven appears;
God’s will be done
Through divine love.
For I’m just a messenger—
My time here is short
But I have work to do
And love to spread.
Incubation of my heart
Has ceased and what’s
Revealed may only be
Described as Divine.
For I cannot explain
What this mission is for
Except to say it is my soul
Who has come to deliver
What is known in the heavens
And keenly placed on my heart.
Why wait until the gates
Await with blinding white?
Why live with darkness
When you can choose light?
The choice is yours but
I have made up mine.
Heaven is for real
And I’m bringing the
Down the Divine love.

How I Found My Sacred Song

My spiritual awakening has quite literally taken flight the past three weeks. Birds have been interacting with me to the degree that I know something significant is transpiring; somehow they are here to deliver messages, but what?

I struggled as to what the meaning might be, but as I often do, I chose to surrender this to Spirit by asking for the answers to be revealed to me. And then I put it out of my mind and let go.

When I look to the sky
And to the clouds,
All is well.
When I look to the stars
and to the moon,
All is well.
When I look to the
Trees and the birds
And the blooms,
All is well.
All is well when
Nature is upon me,
When the Heavens
Meet the Earth
In every spectacular
Breeze of the wind,
Rustle of the leaves,
Stigma of a rose,
And chirp of a bird.
All is well because
The force behind
The cumulus clouds
And the rainbows
And the butterflies
Is surely the force
Moving inside of me.
And in that space,
Where I feel the whole
World move through me,
I know in fact
All is well.

My Epoch

I was served a very important lesson this week after I was struck by a very nasty and painful bug that rendered me weak and vulnerable.

As I fought many self-defeating thoughts that trickled in as the pain set in deeper, I remained calm and centered with self-guided meditation and detoxifying salt baths. I couldn’t help but think this day of misery served an underlying purpose.

This week marks my departure from my full time job and the beginning of my journey as an intuitive healer and coach. I am certain the anxiety of such a drastic change in my path is part of the culprit for my body’s painful process.
