The Gift of Authenticity

Posted in AUTHENTICITY on August 3, 2018 by Kashi

Best for me

Human Design teaches authenticity. Most people, when they approach Human Design are genuinely interested in knowing more about how they are designed and how they operate. What they often don’t realize is just how powerfully their mind has taken control of their lives. It is also difficult to see just how conditioned we are.

We approach Human Design with a full mind; a busy mind that is creating havoc in our life with absolutely no clue how to steer our life, our body, our relationships or our activities for work. Our mind takes us far away from being really authentic.

When I look back at my life and the conditioning that was so prevalent and common surrounding me while growing up, I see the influence of religion, education, romance, fashion, makeup, hairstyles, cars, jewelry and even foods.

What has continuously tripped me up in living out my true authenticity has been the conditioning around marriage. Being raised in a Christian home marriage was given paramount importance. My grandmother had sent me to finishing school so that I could be groomed into the “perfect wife”. It was my grandmother’s dream for me.

The fairy tale of romance kept me prisoner to an idea, a cultural standard and a heavy conditioning agent for becoming something so different than what I really am.

The mental tape has played and dominated my mind as I have moved about attempting to navigate my life. Unfortunately, most of my life decisions have been made to accommodate someone’s dream, my parents or my partners.

Even more difficult to navigate has been the influence of the electromagnetics. They will trick one more than they realize. I have watched my mind create an orchestra of mental tapes, belief systems and juicy romantic stories around the electromagnetic connections. I also recall being enchanted by what is different than me. It is all so incredibly seductive to the mind.

It has taken many years to undo the tapes and the conditioning. I feel like it is finally beginning to crumble away at fifty-two years of age, small bits and pieces. It has taken many years to get to me, the core of me.

When I made the decision to find me, be true to me at any cost, I lost my family, I lost most of my friends and I lost everything that I knew and held dear in my life. It was all taken from me. I could no longer live the façade of the conditioning of my youth.

When everything crumbled, I went to live in nature for a period of years. I decided that I had to live me whatever that meant and far away from the influence of others.

I was determined to find me.

Which brings me to authenticity.

The Oxford Dictionary describes “authenticity” as genuine, legitimate, valid, reliable, dependable, trustworthy, credible, accurate, true, veracity, fidelity.

For me, the greatest tool in gaining authenticity has been the years that I have spent sleeping in my own aura. I can see psychically that sleeping alone is paramount to being able to navigate from one’s own core and exude an accurate expression of who one really is.

I can see that when I am sleeping in another person’s aura that I am picking up all of their body symptoms from pain to passion. I am picking up their psychology, mental tapes and spiritual condition. This includes anyone sleeping within a fifty feet radius of my body.

I’m not “me” until I get the full nights sleep alone in my own aura. Anything I do, whether it is applying my Strategy and Authority or just waiting for life to come to me, it is not going to get me to authenticity. I will never get there if I am carrying around someone else’s psychology and aura debris. People will not read my energy correctly either. That makes me lose opportunities that could be correct for me.

I have watched it happen.

The second aspect of authenticity is becoming vulnerable. Learning to have a sense of humor with one’s self, embracing the “good and bad” of who one is, the dark and the light that exist within. This allows for a more relaxed way of being.

Being vulnerable means that one is able to withstand attack, hurt, pain and stand in the core of who one is. It means that one is willing to be true, legitimate, accurate, reliable, choosing to be, no matter what may come.

In this vulnerability also comes weakness and challenges and learning to embrace all of one’s self without judgment and without fear of being who one really is, dark and light, angel and devil.

When understanding comes in how one operates it clears so much confusion about who one is, what one is here for and what one’s life purpose is. All of that can fade into the background when one is radically apply the tools of Human Design. The science is a great instrument to uncover the layers of conditioning and getting to the core of who one really is.

The gift of authenticity is the magic that happens when we become truly, genuinely our self. We are naturally led directly towards the correct people for furthering our life work or life experiences. We naturally connect with those who are supportive of our endeavors. and we will find that we connect in perfect timing as life unfolds.

I am watching it in my own life. I can see that when I really wait, when I quiet my mental tapes and manage my open Centers, push away and really give myself time to see if I really do want something, I am led directly towards those who are correct, compatible and supportive. It is radically different than anything my mind tries to construct or predict. It is always a surprise.


“Everything about Human Design is that the moment that you escape conditioning you escape sameness. And it is the sameness that clouds our mythological potential. It is the uniqueness of operating correctly as ourselves that define our very mythology and fulfill our lives in a state that in Design we call awaken-ness. Simply to be correct as yourself is to be unique and to be one who is fulfilling the potential of their incarnation.”

Striving for Integrity

Posted in AUTHENTICITY, NOT-SELF on August 2, 2018 by Kashi

 

Turned on.3b

I walked into the coffee shop one morning and my friend behind the counter greets me with, “I figured it out Kashi, it’s all about integrity”.

“I agree, I have been noticing it myself”, I respond, delighted to hear that someone was on the same page as me. He is a Reflector too. I am always curious about how they are viewing and experiencing the program.

This quality of integrity that is brewing on a mass level is causing us to become more authentic in our exchanges with no bullshit, no pretense, no lies or manipulation. There are also no control trips, there is no drama and there is no blame or dumping. Our nine-centered being is acutely aware of what is not true, what is not authentic or real and it hears bullshit loud and clear. When the vehicle is tuned and clear, all of that mentioned above becomes like a “clank and bang’. It’s very uncomfortable and unattractive.

If there is a lack of integrity, it ripples out far and wide, leaving an impact on our reality and our future.

Fears often reveal our lack of integrity. It is useful to look at fears that creep up and see where one is slightly out of alignment with truth and integrity.

Fear can take all forms and definitions, depending on chemistry and life experience. But you can take this sense of fear that rises up inside of you and use it to see where the lack of integrity may be, where the misalignment could happen and address it.

It is useful to look at the places where fear resides in the chemistry of the body to gain better understanding of how fear impacts integrity. Here, we look at the Emotional Center, the Spleen and the Ajna.

Whether you are open or defined in these areas, you are easily prone to the fears that come from each of these places, depending on your definition and what is conditioning you in your environment.

When we take each Center into consideration on a general level, it looks like this:

The Emotional Center is a lesson of authenticity and truth. This Center relates to how honest we are with others, how real we express how we feel and how clear we are in what we want, say and do.

The Spleen Center relates to how safe we feel within our own being. We stay in those situations that are unhealthy for us out of fear of being alone, fear for our survival, fear of being inadequate or fear of not being accepted and loved. It takes us out of integrity, terribly.

The Ajna brings a fear when it doesn’t know and so desperately needs to know. The Ajna, open or defined, angst at “what will happen?”, “Why is this happening?”, “Where is that?”, and “What is this?”. If we are busy entertaining so many mental tapes, we will never be in our integrity.

Each of these Centers and their fears boil down to one thing indicating where the lack of integrity may be and what it looks like:

The Emotional Center fear is lack of honesty in how one is feeling

The Spleen Center fear is lack of trust in one’s Self and in life to provide

The Ajna Center fear is lack of being present and trusting life

Are you being truthful in your interaction?

Or are you hiding behind a story?

Are you confident enough in your own life to live it?

Can you be present and enjoy what is here and now?

Can you allow life to come to you?

I like the definition of Integrity in the New Oxford Dictionary:

integrity |inˈtegritē|
noun
1 the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness : he is known to be a man of integrity.
2 the state of being whole and undivided : upholding territorial integrity and national sovereignty.
• the condition of being unified, unimpaired, or sound in construction : the structural integrity of the novel.
• internal consistency or lack of corruption in electronic data : [as adj. ] integrity checking.

This is my favorite part, Number 2: “the state of being whole and undivided”, “the condition of being unified, unimpaired, or sound in construction”. Even more cool is that it is an “internal consistency or lack of corruption in electronic data”.

 

It makes a big difference if we pay attention to how we are truly communicating and sharing. The more we dial it in, closer to how we really feel and think, closer to how our body is speaking to us on a deep level, the greater our integrity.

Stepping into the integrity of our chemistry is a tad bit like stage fright. The mind doesn’t know our true state of integrity and it feels incredibly foreign. Once we have begun practicing being authentic for a period of time, maybe a few days, it no longer intimidates us. It actually feels incredibly good to be so honest.

Try practicing recognizing in your own speech and what your intentions are as you learn to call things by their true names. By observing your own words as you speak and the root of your motivations, you gain a greater sense of discrimination with integrity.

Through this practice, reality is seen as it is and the true Self is known.

Watch each word that you use, how it impacts and how choosing your words carefully and truthfully, creates a different reality and response. A thoughtful pause before speaking allows for greater truth to be spoken in moments of sharing.

Striving for integrity makes our body feel better. It’s healthier, it’s uplifting, and it eases our journey through life.

God Therapy

Posted in AUTHENTICITY, DECONDITIONING, LIFESTYLE, MELANCHOLY, SELF LOVE on August 1, 2018 by Kashi

Jesus and the children.1

Matthew 18:1-3 (NIV) “At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

“He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them.

And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven…”

The above quote is from a passage where Jesus is teaching his disciples that the way to find the Kingdom of God within is to become like a child. He refers to this “Kingdom of God” many times throughout his teachings insisting that there must be a changing of the nature.

Growing up in a Christian home and school, this Bible verse was quoted often in Sunday school and memorized each year in grade school as we studied the Bible from cover to cover. After high school, I attended a Christian seminary to become a certified family and marriage counselor and a licensed minister. I have been deeply ingrained and conditioned in the Christian teachings.

For many years, I did not have a clue what this passage meant. I sat beneath many teachers, preachers and professors; none of them could truly explain what it truly meant finding the “kingdom of god within”.

There is a common thread throughout many of the ancient teachings that convey our child like innocence is the way to Source or our creator. This place of innocence and wonderment is buried deep inside most of us.

Our child nature may have never had the chance to come out and play, feel safe and just be a child. Life is a challenging journey at times. We lose touch with our Higher Source as we begin to take on the influences of our environment and the belief systems of those around us. Seldom are we given the opportunity to be free like a child on the playground, happily swinging away, flying down the slide, spinning on the merry go round or running from one place to the other.

Do you remember those days?

When there is a crisis, trauma and depression there is also the chance of closing down the vulnerable part of who we are. We grow callous from life’s experience and the state of wonder fades from our being. Through the practice of connecting with this innocent, child-like part of who we are, we enter into a changing of the nature.

Taking time out to be a child again is fabulous for assisting in calming the body and quieting the mind. It is in that calm, innocent, vulnerable space where we connect with Source. Private playtime is what I call, “God Therapy”. It’s that moment when one leaves worry and stress outside the door. Interruptions are not allowed because it’s time to be alone with the tender, innocent part of our self.

Our innocent, playful creative inner child actually leads us away from our nagging mental tapes. It shows us who we really are without the conditioning and influences of others and the expectations that surround us. Our inner child actually doesn’t even like the mental tapes or the expectations that others impose so it will take the mind in a different direction, naturally, easily.

Poetry, paintings, music, sketches, crafts, running, jumping, gardening and writing are a few of the many ways that we can let go and sink into being a child again. Without the judgment and censoring of the mind and with the freedom to create whatever comes up, just like a child, this is where one finds Source, our Kingdom within.

Consider creating your own private play space with an altar that contains those symbols, tools, toys and items that best represent your process of connecting with your inner child.

A kaleidascope is a wonderful way to wake up to the day. Keep one close to the bedkaleidoscope and handy for those moments when you need a reminder.

Coloring books and crayons, an easel with a canvas and a set of paints, fabric pieces for a quilt, a playful army set or a model car or airplane, even a train set are great examples of how you can create a play space just for you.

You may even want to consider playtime clothing. You can make your own celebration dress of your favorite fabrics and colors. You can choose your own costume for playing the different roles and archetypes that you resonate with.

The important thing is to not be critical or judge what you create in your playtime. Give your inner child the freedom to express who it is at the core of its being.

You may even want to give your inner child a name.

Gradually, over time, during this quiet, alone playtime, a synthesis occurs through becoming innocent and free in our connection with Source.

Everybody needs a little bit of “God Therapy” once in awhile.

Free to Be

Posted in AUTHENTICITY on August 1, 2018 by Kashi

LOve that is free

To be loved and as who you are without judgment, criticism, expectations and control is living a life blessed. When we are understood, acknowledged for our talents, appreciated and allowed to be, life feels good.

The most difficult place to be ourselves is in school. Living in the homogenized world of conditioning takes us so far away from our own inner direction and most natural expression. There are so many influences from all directions there is no way one can feel and be true to one’s self, or even hear their inner guide.

When one discovers the essence of who they are through a system such as Human Design, there is a confidence that comes with knowing who you are. You cant be swayed in a direction that is going to hurt you, sabotage your efforts or bring greater confusion to who you are or where you are going. You can actually relax into being carried by a divine force that comes from your awareness that is continuously growing. But being authentically one’s self is not for the faint at heart or weak in spirit. It requires real dedication to loving and living and really watching, experimenting and surrendering to the unfolding. Its a real commitment.

Most wont understand why you make the decisions that you do when you start living authentically. It seems odd to others when you decide to live your true chemistry. Eventually, people stop trying to change or force you into things that are not correct for you. Sticking by your inner authority and strategy, eventually shows others just how cool it is to be tuned in.

By allowing yourself to fall into your own natural chemistry of what is correct, you become authentic and in a natural state of love. By allowing life to unfold naturally without the minds construct also removes disappointment and the frustration that expectations bring.

Human Design provides one an opportunity to ease and relax into who one is and what one can truly trust.

The only thing that is a %100 accountable for directing movement and decision making is one’s own body chemistry. The only way that one can hear their body chemistry is by being tuned in. The only way that one can get to being tuned into is to love one’s self enough to care to listen.

When one listens, One is free to be.

BRILLIANT DECISION-MAKING

 

First Class, Coach, Baggage

Posted in AUTHENTICITY on August 1, 2018 by Kashi

AIrplane 3

As one journeys down the path of life, they can get a “first class” ride, “coach” ride or “baggage compartment” flight.  All three levels of seating and experiences are there for the choosing.

The nature of life is movement for everyone, which causes people, places and things to change continuously. The most consistent place in the journey through life is the seat that one chooses to ride in. Within that choice are three levels of accommodations and quality of rides.

The seat selection on the journey through life is critical, because ultimately, it dictates the experiences along the way.

If one is riding in “first class”, they end up looking better, feeling better and they get recognized properly as they are surrounded by the right people, the right things and everything for providing a smooth ride in comfort through life.

It’s quite delicious sitting in “first class” level of seating.

Not many people get theFirst Class chance for a “first class” ride.

It takes tremendous discipline and a radically different approach to life to get the absolutely best that life has to offer.

Daily discipline, breaking bad habits and cultivating the correct influences for “first class” is beyond most people ‘s comfort zone or motivation, though.

Fortunately, with the awakening of humanity that is upon us, we are growing in our ability to choose “First Class”. However, most of us are flying a “coach” ride. That is why most airplanes are designed with a secondary class area that holds the most amount of bodies for the journey.

coach class.2

In the “coach” class seat of life, there are lots of trial and error experiences, lessons that bring pain, loss, shock and fear.

So, we live out the “devil” inside of us sometimes and sometimes, we live out the “angel” inside of us.

 

Just like what we see in the I Ching interpretations that come with the Human Design software and bodygraph.

Living in a “coach” seat on the ride through life, we miss some of the perks, special attention and fantastic services that come when one is paying attention, applying discipline and truly committed.

Hopefully, “coach” class is serving good snacks along the way……

.

Baggage Compartment

 

Of course, we can upgrade to “first class” at any time during our flight.

 

But it can be difficult to get out of the  super comfortable chairs that are positioned in front of the television. Many enjoy using it for a place to fall asleep.

That is why movies, soap operas and sitcoms dominate the altar of a home. Everybody loves a juicy romance and the drama that comes with it. It keeps life interesting while riding in “coach”, filled up and asleep.

It’s just so “normal” as life passes by.

This is how we get distracted and lose out on “first class” flights through life.

But that’s okay. Not everyone is designed to wake up in this lifetime.

That would create a traffic jam in heaven.

Environment is Key

Posted in AUTHENTICITY on August 1, 2018 by Kashi

Girl and makeup

From a very early age we are conditioned to focus on an illusory construct of who or what we want to become when we grow up. A lot of our decision-making throughout our formative years center around what others think we should become when we reach the age of an adult.

We are conditioned to believe that if we can determine exactly what it is that we want to become before we are eighteen, then we can continue this journey right into college and gain the education that will position us perfectly in life.

Very, very little consideration, if any, is given for the environment that we would like to be in when we grow up. It is obvious that if we are in the right place with the right people, great things can happen.

It is also obvious that if we are spending time with people who do not recognize us, who do not support our efforts and do not accept us, as we are, that we are in the wrong place with the wrong people. It is not healthy for anybody to endure unkind company that does not resonate.

But selecting, choosing environment is not like the game of choosing what you want to become when you grow up.

And choosing the environment is not choosing the geographical location. It’s about being in the right place, surrounded by the people who have the chemistry that resonates with yours. It’s also about timing. Our trajectory has an entire story planned out in front of us. We are destined to meet certain people at certain times in our life as well as gain certain opportunities and learn lessons if we haven’t “gotten” it yet.

It is as though the path we tread has a quality of “fate” to it as our Monopole works to hold our life in a fixed trajectory until it can dissolve and disappear into love. It is not for us to see and know. It is for us to experience, to learn and to grow.

If we are caught in a romantic story or a place of fear, then we stay in that cycle of set experiences that take us through the lessons that will force us to grow. If we are caught in our attachments to people, places or things, then we go through the lessons that assist us in becoming unattached.

If we lose it all, surrender to life and tune in to our inner compass, we suddenly get an adventure that is interesting, stimulating and the correct use of our outer authority and inner definition. That has great healing and transformational effects.

But so many people are missing the point.

Because of the conditioning that we have received, we think that we are suppose to meet “someone” or do certain things in our life to gain a better reality or if we get this job or marry this person, our life is going to change.

But it doesn’t work that way, at all

Each moment is a letting go, and more of letting go. This takes us to the right place when we surrender.

But who wants to be in the “right place” doing what they truly enjoy when they can be “in love”?

If you move according to being in the correct environment, you can no longer be attached to any one person, place or even family. That requires a tremendous amount of surrender that most people are not ready to embrace. It also causes tremendous upheaval in traditional settings, isolating one beyond their comfort zone.

That is why it can be so confusing for so many. Most people think that their trajectory is going to take them to meet the “one” who will complete them. Most people don’t even consider that flowing towards correct environments may be the key to their fulfillment and their well-being.

It’s never what the mind contrives it to be.

BRILLIANT DECISION-MAKING

 

Don’t Be A Cow

Posted in AUTHENTICITY on August 1, 2018 by Kashi

fuller

Fuller’s quote above stirred an immediate reaction in me because I see formal education, “school”, as a powerful conditioning agent that deadens a person to their inner voice and guide, completely.

Every person in this educational system is treated the same, like herds of cattle. We are not treated for our unique way of being such as emotional, splenic, a Projector, Manifestor, Reflector or otherwise, each with their own chemistry design. We are treated as one kind of operating system and grossly misunderstood and unrecognized for our uniqueness.

We all move in our own unique way with our own unique path.

My response to the above quote is “go back BEFORE you were put into school and remember who you are”.

One time, I asked my grandmother and my mother what they remember the most about me as a child.

My grandmother said that what she remembered the most about me as a child was that I always wanted to be the boss and in charge. It’s true; I enjoy being the ‘boss’. With my Personality Sun in 54.5 and the 7.6 in my north node, it is natural.

54.5 “The natural authority and actualizing spirit, that in a position of power can have genuine and fruitful relationships with the less advantaged as long as they are in service and don’t make demands”. And 7.6, north node: “The power to communicate the frameworks of responsibility.”

My mother replied that what she remembered the most about me is that I changed my clothes several times throughout the day. “Every time I saw you, you had a different outfit on”, she responded.

For years I could never understand how that represented doing what I enjoy in life. I remember changing clothes throughout the day trying to get comfortable; the right type of textile and the right design. I was very challenged.

I discovered later in life that the greatest cause of my constant changing of clothes happened because of artificial textiles. I am allergic to nylon, polyester and anything else that is not a natural textile and does not breath with my body chemistry. I feel like I am going to burn up in polyester or nylon or similar synthetics with my four motors and Pita body.

Because of this yearning to be comfortable in clothing and having something fashionable to wear, I accidentally started a fashion line. In an effort to get comfortable, I purchased several yards of natural fabric and started making my own outfits.

Out socially, people would ask me where I purchased the outfit that I was wearing. Suddenly, people began placing orders to purchase and wear my fashion. It was a very pleasant surprise to my accidental profession of fashion design.

I never intended to become a fashion designer nor did I go to school for it. I was just doing what I love, naturally.

And being the “boss” has played out consistently through out my life in my professional experiences. I have often earned positions of authority, quickly.

Child flourishing

Before we are sent to school, we are free, our imagination is rich and our soul is dancing in our playtime.

 

What do you remember enjoying and playing the most as a small child before you were sent to school?

 

What was life like before you knew that it was Monday or Sunday and it didn’t matMeditate child 3ter?

 

This place of innocence is where magical serendipity sits that brings sweet
surprises and deep satisfaction that comes from a life that is lived being YOU.

 

Don’t be a cow.

Love yourself and be free.

Choice or No Choice

Posted in AUTHENTICITY on August 1, 2018 by Kashi

Do we really, choose what happens to us?

When a person embarks on the path of Human Design, one of the first things that they are told is that Human Design is about learning correct decision-making. Yet, we often hear the comment repeated, “No choice” in many social circles of Human Design enthusiasts.

It would seem, that if Human Design is about decision-making and that there truly is “no choice”, then most people are probably feeling slightly confused, aching to know more and desperately searching for the right answer that will solve the mystery to having “no choice”. It can be a fabulous marketing angle, as well, promoting the right decision when there really, is no choice, or is there?

This mystery of “no choice” and yet the hope that is inspired to make a better decision is a bizarre perspective on the reality of things. What is Ra Uru Hu, the founder of Human Design trying to convey in this mysterious play that he has fabulously orchestrated into a teaching?

Let’s take a closer look.

For eons, the bulk of humanity has been left in the dark concerning astrology. Religion has taken precedence as those who taught the mysteries of astrology were tortured, murdered or wiped out and often, made an example of what could happen if one became curious enough to search and study. There are books written, collected from the 13th and 14th centuries that depict such gruesome events, such as, The Malleus Maleficarum of Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger, or Compendium Maleficarum: The Montague Summers Edition by Francesco Maria Guazzo. In these books, one can begin to observe how astrology has become a forbidden knowledge as the “witches” of that time-period were wiped off the planet.

What did those witches know and understand that the church worked so desperately to eradicate from the hands of common people? The understanding, the work and the dedication in a time-period when there was no distraction from television or cars to mobilize our busyness, must have brought out the magnificent and brilliant. Thank heavens the wisdom was preserved through ancient cultures, such as Hindu, which fabulously hid the most precious accountings of the human potential. Many of the secrets have been woven into tales with significant messages that only few could understand or grasp, such as in the Bhagavad Gita. The ancient Indian Hindu culture has also provided a consistent body of adept scholars of the cosmos through the ancient science of Ayurveda, a fully comprehensive, astrological lifestyle science.

One of the most astonishing things about astrology is that it can show you, accurately, where you have been in life and why. Astrology can also show you the potential of where you can go, good or bad. It’s mind blowing to study a person’s entire life and read what has been painted by the stars, while grasping what has happened and what could be ahead. It is also a very empowering process as it removes confusion, doubt and worry. Suddenly, when one understands who they are, what talents they have and how it could potentially work best in the world, one can slow down and relax into their natural rhythm and be truly content.

But one must know how to choose wisely, if one is to get the best experiences.

This is the important part: the experiences ahead are determined by our choices. Thank heavens our life experience is about growing and not necessarily about achieving. With an array probabilities, we get a chance to choose a better direction, if we are not happy with where we are at. But the choices that we have are limited to a scope of choices within our life path, which is the tricky part.

Every life path has a few roads to choose from. For instance, one can choose to be in a relationship and work through the issues of relating and the complications of a combined aura.
If this road is chosen, one can expect daily events wrapped around how one’s lover is feeling, or making one miserable or how one could not live without the other. There are many romance stories that get played on the repeat button of life. This person will continue to repeat the path and repeat the decisions as they look for love in all the wrong places.

And then there is the path that speaks of an independent mind that is focused on its own needs and wants. This guy is very, very busy manifesting and making things happen yet, this person may experience losses, forced into working at jobs they don’t like and often placed in a complicated environment with the wrong people. Most likely, it’s because they are hoping that they will benefit from those surrounding them, in some way. So, the decisions that are made, are contrived out of a desire to get something.

And then there are those who are living their life quietly, mundanely and are happy with living simply. Their decisions are simple and innocent and there is not a lot of drive behind their direction in life. Their choice is often, a hope that nothing changes too much. It’s quiet and lovely in that spot but very little growth occurs during the span of life.

There are also those who are doing the best that they can, making mistakes sometimes and making good choices too. They are learning a lot along the way. This group is hoping to mature gracefully, do the best they can and leave a positive imprint in some way.

This is where decision-making is quintessential, when it becomes the manifestation of growth and maturity. Through one simple decision, one can lose out on a stroke of financial luck with a great opportunity, or one can gracefully step up to the next level of their life path and receive great abundance. It truly depends on the decisions that are being made in the moment and in how one chooses to speak, act, behave or present themselves.

It is that simple.

A closer look at life cycles reveals the chances, the stage of maturation, the process and the real probabilities that are written in a person’s destiny. There are layers upon layers of activity taking place all at once and dependent upon who is operating the body system: the emotions, the ego or the forces of something higher. It can be a combination of those components too, causing one of the two to suffer while the other blunders. Ahhh, the life of duality in the program on this planet, earth.

I guess it’s not that simple.

With the maturation process that takes place through the major life cycles, there is also the maturation of the chakra centers in the etheric body that occurs over lifetimes. The current state or condition of a chakra speaks volumes to a clairvoyant regarding one’s mental and physical health. It also demonstrates the level of awareness or point of consciousness of a human to a realized, aware being.

In addition, not all chakras are open. Only certain chakras are open in conjunction to a person’s level of evolution. Most of humanity has the Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus open and many do not have the Heart chakra open nor any of the centers above the Heart Center. I have experienced only a handful of people in my life who truly have the Heart Chakra open and active. Ancient teachings reveal the opening of chakras correlating to time-periods of civilizations.

This again, brings us to the profundity of “choice vs. no choice”. It is our state of evolution that determines the quality of experiences that we engage in. If we are in our ego, we get the lessons that tame our powerful, strong nature, as we get slapped and sent to the corner. If we are obsessed or needy, we get the losses, the hurts, the pains and the rejection. If we have taken advantage, loss loyalty or hid to mislead or caused confusion, then we get tortured, destroyed or fooled. On the contrary, when we dish out love and kindness, we often receive the same in kind. Life is filled with an array of experiences for all kinds of human lessons to grow, intended to teach morality and higher principles with every turn.

Ultimately, it gets down to the simple act of how one responds to life in each moment. The chakras (centers), the maturation level of the being, performs the talking and makes the decisions. A person is going to spiral up or one will spiral down, always in conjunction with what one is ready for and how they are behaving and responding to life and how they are being influenced in their environment.

Ultimately, the choice is yours, but not really.

Thank heavens for astrology!

After the Crisis

Posted in AUTHENTICITY on August 1, 2018 by Kashi

When big changes come into our life, a crisis is happening or so it seems. Activations and transits occur that cause big shifts in our life, planetary impressions cause us to behave in certain ways and changes come into our life stimulating fear, insecurity, rejection and bigstock_Sad_Lonely_Solitary_Depresed_Y_5356281feelings of aloneness. When these transits come into our life trajectory or into the program field, we get a test or a lesson that provides an opportunity to spiral up or stay stuck in a cycle of learning.

This is the nature of the Channel of Initiation, 25/51 and the Channel 35/36. They are the lesson bringers. Yet, they are very different.

The 25/51 carries the characteristic of initiation through shock in order to transform. The 35/36 carries crisis as a long, slow, dramatic process through the experiential way.

Some people have these gates or channels activated in their chemistry and they feel the effects of a transit occurring more than others. Depending on how one is defined on a more subtle level determines the experiences and lessons in relation to shock, change or initiation and how and when it occurs in their life trajectory.

bigstock_Sad_Man_324562This “shock and crisis” experience is an intimate part of our evolutionary process as a human. It is there to break old habits and traditions; transform the nature of one’s being and crack open any crystallization that is keeping one from evolving through movement and change. And it is providing a doorway, an opportunity for initiation and advancement to spiral up and out of a series of lessons.

Moments of crisis are a complete surprise. There is no time to prepare for them. That is why it can be such a shock to the system. A shocking act is so different than what one is bigstock_Sadness_2802529thinking and feeling in the moment. It can be very painful. Those moments of crisis often go against what is dear to our heart, what brings joy in life, what we feel we need or so it seems.

If we don’t survive these shocking moments, we dive into darkness and deep depression. We stay stuck in the same series of lessons until we are jolted out of our lethargy or atrophy. We create more hardship for our life and lose vigilance with creativity, and beauty by ignoring the opportunities to move beyond the shock or pain.

There is a plan that is designed to evolve all parts of the being on different levels through painful and shocking experiences that lead us into joyful new understandings and perceptions.

The shock, the crisis of change is the catalyst for leading us into a wider, expanded way of viewing existence and a deeper, wider heart opening.
