Listening to What Really Matters

Taking the time to stop and make sure that you’re working toward the things that mean the most to you is the best time — and gift — you can give yourself.

We should really Stop, Pause and Listen to what really matters to us. 

1. Stop, take a breath and LISTEN: What do you hear? Are there voices telling you that you’re not good enough or strong enough to do what you love? Face those voices and see if they’re actually pointing out something you should be giving a shot

2. Run toward what scares you:  Do you often felt paralyzed by all of the “what ifs.” So I let myself really wallow in those feelings and see them for what it was — a failure of actually succeeding at something that mattered. I felt fine failing at things that didn’t mean as much to me, but I wouldn’t be able to be happy with myself if I failed at something that really meant something to me.

3. Ask for help: Whether you know what you want and need help articulating it or need help to figure out what you actually want to be doing, ask someone you trust and love. Chances are, if they spend a lot of time with you, they know what you talk about and what seems to come up over and over. Ask them about that — and listen to what they say. You may have been missing an idea that was right in front of you the whole time. Ask for help and Listen to what others have for you.

Namaste!

Synchronicity

What if the Universe is alive — and is trying to communicate with you through synchronicity and the Law of Karma?

Synchronicity is a term that came into popular use through Swiss psychotherapist Carl Jung.

Synchronicity means exactly this… Being in alignment (in sync) with Divine time.To experience synchronicity is to experience the magic of the Universe. Synchronicity speaks to the magical coincidental moments of Divine alignment…

When you are in harmony with the flow of life, and the guidance of your angels and Higher Self, you’re likely to experience increased synchronicity.

Synchronicity can come in many forms, such as meaningful coincidences, signs and signals pointing you in the right direction, books or teachers aligning, doors and opportunities magically opening up for you, and improbable meetings with just the right people, at just the right time.

For instance, connecting back the dots about what you learned about yourself through your alignment process and recognises repetitive messages or simply taking a view of whatever that was presented to you at the moment..etc…are synchronicity in your life.

How do you experience more synchronicity and serendipity on your path?

Start by looking for, and noticing all the meaningful alignments which have already occurred in your life. Where your attention goes energy flows, and so consciously noticing synchronicity which has already happened in your experience, begins to pave the way for more to occur.

Most Importantly, cultivate Awareness!

I find an interesting method for myself to cultivate deeper awareness in my life. Just need 5 minutes of my time everyday. It is the 5 Minute Journal. I find that by “answering” these questions, i FEEL Deeper into my inner being, to Question or Explore how i can be better and more joyful everyday and to Give myself permission to Say No or stop doing/thinking what do not serve me positively. 

Do try it out and experience the change yourself.

The 5 minute journal
I am grateful for ……
What would make today great ……
Daily affirmation –  I am …….
3 Amazing things that happened today ……
How can i have made today better…..

Finding Flow in our life

Flow is mindfulness in action. It’s being fully present in the here and now and responding to the task at hand with curiosity and engagement and an intention to do it well.

Each of us has the potential to do magnificent things. The problem is, we spend most of our lives trying to control how we act, what we do and what other people think of us.
All those attempts to control keep us from the amazing potential inside. There’s something dangerous and inhibiting about that word: control.

Control comes with related thoughts and emotions like perfectionism, suppression, fear, worry, jealousy, ego and restraint. A life of attempted control is a life bottled up, restrained and held back. You don’t control your magnificent side, you let it flow.

Flow is the opposite of control. Flow is the art of letting things happen. You don’t control your way to achieving flow, it happens when you stop controlling and start encouraging.

Here are some simple ways to create more flow in your day:

1. Have a clear purpose – Know what you truly want

2. Complete something every day – Take Positive Action Daily

3. Stay committed ; Stay Focus on your end goal

4. Search for the wisdom (growth) in each challenge – Never lose the lesson that comes with the experience.

5. Trust the process

Keep in mind this is life that your living, strive for progress not perfection.

As always don’t just take my word for it, experiment on your own. Take a moment to see how you can weave these into your life starting today, and begin to make shift happen.

Mindfulness doesn’t require five days in silence or hours under a banyan tree.

The Fool’s Journey

If you are familiar to using Tarot Cards, you will notice most of the tarot deck has the Fool as the beginning card, the starting of the journey through life. The Fool’s Journey is a metaphor for the journey through our life.

We begin with the Fool (0), a card of beginnings. The Fool stands for each of us as we begin our journey of life. We are a fool because only a simple soul has the innocent faith to undertake such a journey with all its hazards and pain.
At the start of our trip, the Fool is a newborn – fresh, open and spontaneous.

You will see that in the Fool Card, the man has his arms flung wide, and his head held high. He is ready to embrace whatever comes his way, but he is also oblivious to the cliff edge he is about to cross. The Fool is unaware of the hardships he will face as he ventures out to learn the lessons of the world. Isn’t this familiar in our life?

The Fool stands somewhat outside the rest of the major arcana. Zero is an unusual number. It rests in the exact middle of the number system – poised between the positive and negative. At birth, the Fool is set in the middle of his own individual universe. He is strangely empty (as is zero), but imbued with a desire to go forth and learn. This undertaking would seem to be folly, but is it?

It is important that we realize that we are the Fool and the Journey of the Fool is our own adventure through the magical realm of archetypal energies. The Fool an everyman character,is how we begin and how we end, from our childish wobbles and gibberish to our drooling dotage.

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.” – Touchstone in ‘As You Like It’

Namaste!

The Awakening Fool – Who am I?

Who am I?
I am not my name , my body or my reflection.
For my name was bestowed on me by others and my body is of the earth and to the earth returns.
My reflection is just a fleeting mirror image of my vessel.

Allow the world to slumber,
For I accept my world as it is,
Those awaken will move forward,
And those who are not will remain.

Who am I?
I am not my thoughts or my actions
For my thoughts are changing as the seasons and my actions can be disguises to fool others.

Who am I?
I am not my emotions
My emotions swing like a weathercock in the wind.

Feel the bliss rising to the sky,
That will transcend to glowing energy.
For all the world will awaken to a rising dawn,
To a new way of feeling and being.

I am eternal energy, I am love
And a priceless piece of the jigsaw!

Journey of Rebirth

The journey of rebirth is a soul-clenching spiritual shedding of the self, or quite possibly many selves, through the ethereal birth canal of the spirit.

Shedding layers upon layers of self-delusion, and lifetimes of inaccurate or self-deprecating belief systems. Inaccurate views of the true self and the true nature of our lives and ourselves.

I don’t believe the rebirth process ever stops. I believe the birth has many layers and takes on many forms. The world is awakening and people are feeling many different things these past few years, things they have never experienced before. I know this, thanks to the internet, my work, and the powerful and intense energies surrounding us. Ignorance is bliss, but that’s no longer an option.

The rebirthing process makes you want to run and hide, and avoid the inevitable vulnerability of sharing the pain, sharing the loss. Our  life, and everything in it, seems to change every day, every moment, every time I turn around.

“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.” ~ Brené Brown

The rebirth is a painful path, full of ups and downs, loss and love. How could it not be? How could a total and complete shedding of skin, of the comforts and ego-based fears not be excruciating?

The ego was designed to protect, but as it became out of balance, it hindered rebirths through those muddy and suffocating canals. Layers and layers of doubt, insecurity and the like, telling us we can’t be anything other than what the world told us to be; we can’t thrive, be adventurous and follow our joy.

The intention of your desires set out to the Universe starts the motion of movement, and once implanted, can’t be taken back. Just walk your walk, and trust that the Divine will guide, inspire and fulfill — if you believe.

As a healer, I know that you must release to receive, and you must open and heal in order to live a more fulfilling and powerful life. I see through the ashes of despair and the curtain of discovery. I see what’s on the other side for me, I see who I am and why I’m here. To heal, heal myself, help heal others, and send that love and magic to the whole world. No more hiding, no more self-loathing. It’s time for freedom!

Till the next time….

Rebirth is a journey of awakening

Our memory is not only the home of our life story. It holds a key to the essence of who we are.

The wholeness of our souls continually beckons us through disturbing feelings and events to awaken to the unmet potentials within us – as maturing individuals, as a rapidly changing culture and as an evolving human species.

As we search for meaning in our lives and for the means to allay suffering, these core questions – Who am i ? Why am i here? usually come up. The heart of all rebirth work is to awaken consciousness so that you can experience the answers to these questions by remembering how you were created.

Our living on Earth can therefore be described as a training camp to regain personality traits like unconditional love, self honesty, happiness, modesty and humbleness. Family, friends, acquaintances and “coincidental” encounters are our training partners for the souls on their way back to the divine origin.

The essence of our discussion on Rebirth is to recognize the motivation of our souls for reincarnation (rebirth) and to hopefully draw conclusions for the personal life (being the current incarnation).

 

Runanubandha

Runanubandha, which indicates a physical relationship. Whenever you touch someone – either because of blood relationship or sexual relationships, or even if you just hold someone’s hand or exchange clothes – these two bodies will generate runanubandha, a certain commonality.

When someone dies, traditionally, you are seeing how to completely obliterate the runanubandha. The idea of putting the ashes in the ocean is to disperse them as widely as possible so that you do not develop runanubandha with one who has departed.

For you to continue your life, you must properly break this runanubandha. Otherwise, as it happens in modern societies, it will affect your physical and mental structure.

Children up to eight years of age are immune to these things – nature has given them that protection, but adolescents will suffer immensely when we do not take care of the dead properly, because the energies of disembodied beings are always there and the first ones that they go after are adolescents because they are the most vulnerable.

You see in the world today how much upheaval people are going through during adolescence. One of the reasons why adolescence is more of a struggle today than it was in previous generations is that we are not properly taking care of those who have departed and these runanubandhas are all over the place. It is like loose software everywhere, and it always affects adolescent life most. 

Emotions are a different, secondary aspect to life. It is the physical sameness, the runanubandha with the dead that you want to eliminate, because this can cause sickness and mental derangement, among other things. Emotion by itself is not damaging. If you had a beautiful relationship with someone and now the person is no more, it is healthy to cherish the beauty of that relationship rather than suffer. But if the runanubandha is there, it weakens your body and your mental structure in such a way that instead of cherishing all the beautiful things that happened between two people, you are suffering, and not only that – it will lead to a certain derangement of life. To avoid that, we try to destroy the physical memory alone. It is not only that you cannot forget the emotional and psychological memory, you should not forget it either. Someone who meant so much to you – why should you forget them? You must cherish that relationship forever.

Till the next time. Namaste !

Karmic Effect – The Endless Knot

In Buddhist practice, the ‘Eternal Knot’ or “Endless Knot” is a symbol of promise representing the unity between infinite wisdom and compassion- without beginning or end. It is a geometric diagram of right angles which symbolizes the nature of reality where everything is interconnected- a flowing process of interrelated cause & effect- and where everything exists as part of a web of karmic (Connective) action (condition) & consequence.

Our intent, decisions, and the actions we take yield results (consequences) that are all part of an inseparable connective process that manifests in who we are… and who we are becoming. We are all a ‘sum’ of our interdependent actions. Our dispositions to how we respond to our own experiences have long been conditioned. The test of our character is in the skillful application of mindfulness- a present-moment awareness that is relaxed, curious, open, receptive, and kind. It is in the ‘space’ and ‘light’ of mindfulness that we can begin to see more clearly how we have conditioned and shaped our nature of response… and how this streaming ‘connective effect’ of historical response patterns has fused together our character.

With this insight, we may come to realize that our future doesn’t have to remain fixed as a product of our past. We have the FREEDOM and the power of ‘NOW’ to reshape our nature of response and our character by sustaining awareness for how we condition… intent, disposition, and action… TODAY.

Namaste!

Karma Is Connection

Karma can best be understood in the timelessness of life. If we can consider that we actually live in a timeless eternity, then we can begin to understand the relativity of life, and the notion of reincarnation. Many skeptics will disagree, and argue the points against reincarnation because “it can’t be proved”. However the best way to understand life is to validate it and prove it to your self. You don’t have to convince anyone else of anything.

If we are a spiritual soul, then our essence is timeless. The physical body form is simply the vehicle for the expression of our spirit. The conscious mind cannot remember everything that has ever happened throughout time, because the conscious mind is finite. It cannot explore or define infinity. The conscious mind is an excellent practical tool for studying, analyzing and recording data.

However, the timeless remembrance of experiences is stored in the repository of our soul memory and greater spiritual I AM. This is where all experiences are recorded (akashic record). We can only access this realm through meditation, which requires the calming of the five senses, to reach our neutral point of essence. In this space of quietude, it is possible to invoke the higher vibrational field of our soul memory and greater I AM, as a portion of Universal Consciousness.

The only other way is through conscious dream recall, which usually occurs only when it is relevant to a particular phase of our spiritual development.

So in this timeless eternity, we do not measure time with clocks, days, or working weeks. Time is really only a measurement of events, or issues.

In timeless eternity everything progresses through a series of cycles, and tasks. When one cycle or task is completed, then a new one begins, and so forth. So this follows then that our soul essence is also timeless, and that life proceeds through embodiment in the physical world, the laboratory of spirit.

This is the Continuity of Life. The soul chooses to re-embody (reincarnate) into a physical dimension (reality) for further expression, creativity, growth and development. In every new situation it will attract the relevant (Connection) cause and effect patterns that it has set up in the past. This is an ongoing part of our soul development and learning from our own creations. We are co-creators with the Original Creator – God (or whatever we perceive God to be).

A REASON: Everything that happens, is happening for a reason. There is an order to life that extends far beyond one lifetime of existence, or our legal and political laws. The natural law of cause and effect is what maintains order and balance in what may appear to be absolute chaos. This in effect, is natural justice.

Eastern philosophies call this Karma. In the Western world we have a term of; “what goes around, comes around”, which is similar. In any case, this is the Law of the Circle, or Cycles. Karma however, is not about punishment. It is about Cyclical Connection.

Karma is about learning and growth, and understanding through direct life experience, through “meeting Self”. We can be told something verbally which may make sense, but it can be easily forgotten, or not practiced. This can also be the case with mental or academic learning. However, whatever is learned through direct life experience, will be remembered on all levels, physical, emotional, mental, and at the soul level.

We are co-creators with all of life. We can be the masters of our connection – cause and effect. We can face life with confidence if we can understand the purpose of life and the true science of life at all levels. We can be aware of the consequences of choice. We can understand how cause and effect (Cyclical Connection) is part of the evolutionary journey of life.  We can then understand the connection of life- We are ONE.

Namaste!

Karma

In Kath’s thoughts, the word Karma is simply a description –  Let’s assume Karma as NOT  “a thing – Deed”, rather it is a Connection – No Good or Bad , just Connection.
Karma is just one of the many descriptions for Connection – Connection or Bond attached to grids of events , people , things..etc..in differing time-space plane. 

Mindsets that you bring into this life with you are also your “karma (Connection)”. If you have a mindset that you are not good enough, the belief will inevitably draw into your life things and people that make you feel inferior or weak.

Positive beliefs create good “karma (Connection)” in your life. Wonderful things then happen. You are responsible for your own mindset, so change your beliefs if they do not serve you in a positive manner.

Your health is your karma (Connection). Before you incarnated you chose your family, your life challenges and your mission. You also chose your body and your genetic predisposition. Your moment by moment choices of thoughts and emotions will affect your vitality and health. This is your karma (Connection).

The balance sheet of your karma (Connection) is known as your *Akashic Records, which is a recorded history of all of your lives and life experiences and lessons. Karma (Connection) is carried forward from lifetime to lifetime. We may not experience the consequences of our actions until a subsequent lifetime. Because of this there is often no obvious and visible correlation between an action and its consequence/s.

The higher our vibration, the more quickly karma (Connections) returns to us. Some are subjected to ‘instant karma (Connection)’. If you feel that you never get away with anything, you may be experiencing instant karma (Connection). This means that whatever you give out comes back to you, instantly. It is a sign that you are becoming more evolved because your karmic (Connection) balance sheet is being kept up to date. Your soul is no longer allowing you to accumulate debt.

*Akashic Records 
The majority of the world’s cultures, faiths and philosophers generally agree that the Akashic Records exist. The Hindus believe in a universal substance call ‘akasha’ – from which the natural elements of water, fire, earth and air were created.

The Akashic Records are perceived to be the collective memories and histories of every thought, physical and emotional vibration, sound, major event, minor incident and all movement in eternity. The Akashic Records are the entire history of everything that ever has been, and everything that ever will be. They could be looked upon as a ‘memory bank’ containing details about everything that happens in the Universe, and information about every spirit and the many lives they have lived.

With Love & Light.

Love & Compassion

“Love and compassion…are the ultimate source of human happiness, and the need for them lies at the very core of our being.” – Dalai Lama

From Prime Creator were birthed polarities from a field of compassion: Yin and Yang; Light and Dark.

The sacred energy of love and compassion, the Great Heart of the World, embraces us all, without condition, unifying all of life, unifying the whole creation within the warm spirit of kindness, appreciation and concern. With good fortune (accumulation of good karma), we may meet people in whom this unfettered love shines strongly, allowing all around to bask in its light. The great saints and bodhisattvas, utterly emptied of themselves, transmit such love and compassion. Whenever we look into another person’s eyes and recognize the sameness, that person and I are the same, not really separate, this is love.

When we hear of or see another person’s misfortune, and we feel the pain of their suffering, and are moved to extend the help that lies within our power, this is compassion. For this we need strength, because suffering lies all around us. The daily news’ litany of catastrophes and evil deeds, large and small, could devastate us, were we awake to the whole of it and lacked the strength to bear it. But awakening through spiritual practice brings its own strength. And the suffering we see is more than balanced by the joy that flows to us along with love, protecting the compassionate from being overwhelmed by the force of suffering.

Universal love lies far beyond its pale imitation in the lower energies, where emotional attachment turns from “love” to hate, jealousy, or despair. Nevertheless, the world is so constructed that it remains within our possibilities to participate in love knowingly. But that can only happen to the degree we empty ourselves of ourselves.

Self-referential motives, self-centeredness, attachment, expectation of something in return, grasping, setting of conditions, partial-heartedness – none of these have any place in love and, in practice, completely block the action of love. Placing ourselves first and at the center forecloses the possibility of love. Yet moments do come even to us, perhaps with our family or our pets or unexpectedly with a stranger, when we are briefly free of egocentric attachment and the true heart of objective love opens within us. In unguarded moments, our natural response to people is friendship, one of the faces of love. To be able to love is a goal lofty and worthy enough to sustain our long journey along the path, drawing us ever forward.

Our common mother, the Earth, also loves, loves each one of us and all life in her biosphere. Like a self-centered and petulant child, we only too rarely return this love. And like a child, we so take for granted the love of our mother Earth, that we do not even recognize it. Yet her love is there for us individually, in nature and in the city, if we can but open to it.

One simple expression of it manifests as the beauty with which nature adorns herself. And there are other more direct expressions we may perceive, including a reservoir of spiritual energies within the Earth that we can draw upon. But as a species, we need to mature and not expect the Earth to continue indefinitely absorbing every insult and injury we pile upon her. We push these limits at the Earth’s, and our own, peril. The Earth gives and gives and gives, perhaps more than she can afford. But because our collective strength now exceeds our collective wisdom, the Earth needs us to find a place in our hearts for her.

By our inner work, by opening to higher energies, by purifying our will and intentions, we help cleanse our collective will, raise our collective level of being, and give back to the Earth and to human society. And we do this for love.

Love manifests in many forms, but always serves to unify. Love’s unmistakable hallmark dissolves our veils of isolation and separation, allowing us to become more fully ourselves within the sweet scent of merging.

Namaste.

Mind is Clarity

Sometimes the biggest questions you can ask yourself—Who am I? What is my purpose? Where can I find fulfilment? What is the mind?—come down to a very simple one: What shall I do today? Its all boils down to two words CLARITY & AWARENESS. 

The world’s wisdom traditions tell us to look inside for the real obstacles that block the way to fulfillment. Outer demands will always fill the time given to them. Pitching into the swirling activity of daily life inevitably makes existence seem stressed and chaotic. What you can do instead is to examine your reality “in here,” which is where clarity can be found. This method is heavily weighted on our mind. Therefore, Kath feels that our Mind is one of the many Clarity Tools we have.

World’s wisdom tradition teaches that the unsettled mind comes about through one thing only: losing sight of who we really are. You can’t be a puppet of outside demands and pressures unless you see yourself as secondary while the world “out there” is primary. After all, how can you eat, put a roof over your head, raise a family, and so on without plunging into the hard realities of daily existence? The answer lies in finding out who you really are—a conscious agent who can choose, at any time, to live from the level of the true self.

Are you living your true self today? Live life with clarity. 

Namaste Om.

 

25th June 2016 Connective Session: Compassion

Compassion is a part of Love – When you have love, you have compassion
For one to have compassion, you must first be completely passionate (love) about your Beingness. ~kg

Compassion

When you are not identified with anything, you will be absolutely virtuous. When you are not identified with anything, only then you are truly capable of compassion. When you are identified, you can only be biased. When you are compassionate you are always virtuous. 
People being sympathetic to certain causes or certain people is not compassion. When you are passionate about everything, when your passion has become all encompassing, then you are compassionate. Compassion is not little pity or sympathy for something. When your passion encompasses everything, you are compassionate.

Compassion is the highest virtue in a way and compassion is not possible if you are identified with this or that. Only when you are able to just look at life as life, only then you can be compassionate. If you look at it as my life or your life – no compassion. When life is just life, there is compassion.

Virtue

Virtue is define as the behaviour of showing high moral standards. Virtue is for all human beings and compassion is always the highest virtue.

Compassion means including everything in your passion. When the whole existence is involved in your passion, you are compassionate.

Namaste Om !

28th May 2016 Connective Session: The Flow III

Allowing Flow to return to your life

I believe that i’m co creating my experience with an energy that is part of me, that surrounds me and that is bigger than me. I like to most frequently refer to it as the Universe, but also it’s God or my higher self (inner guide). It’s my trust in a source of something to have faith in, and often that is just you having a trust in your inner self, your energy and personal power.

Now, when we are blocked in some way, it’s usually because we are IN OUR OWN WAY! I resonate with this idea a lot, sometimes I swear I can see myself looming in front of me.

I feel connected to my own feelings and totally trust the Universe has my back but can still struggle often to completely relinquish control.

SURRENDER

This is the word that you need, this is the word to replace control. This is the word that is infinitely better than ‘let go’.

I can tell you that ‘I Surrender’ is the most powerful mantra and thought process I have ever used. It is part of my daily practice. I have found an instant shift in many of my thought processes. 

Therefore, to allow flow to return to your life, we need to surrender ourselves. When I say ‘I surrender’ my intent is that I am surrendering my anxieties, ego thoughts, obsessions, problems up on a plate, I am surrendering TO allow things to move forward naturally and as they should. I am trusting that there is a flow to my life and that by surrendering my control over things I am making way for positive change and opportunities. I am stepping back into my present moment and not trying to force things into my life.

Surrendering frees me from the negative patterns that my ego mind creates.

Today, start the “I Surrender” Mantra.

Namaste Om.

14th May 2016 Connective Session: The Flow II

The state of flow, or being “in the zone”, is a state of peak performance. The key to being in the state Flow is Manoeuvre. The attitude to manoeuvre with ease is flexibility and allowing.

The flow state has been described by the world’s greatest thinkers as the most productive and creative state of mind in which to work. In addition, positive psychologists–most notably Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D.–argue that achieving the flow state on a regular basis is a key component of happiness. That is, by learning how to enter the state of flow you can increase your productivity, be more creative, be more flexible and be happier, all at the same time.

How Does It Feel to Be in the Flow?

These seven points summarize how some people responded that they felt when in the flow state:

  1. You’re completely involved in what you’re doing: you’re completely focused and concentrated.
  2. There’s a sense of ecstasy–of being outside of everyday reality.
  3. There’s a great inner clarity: you know what needs to be done and you get immediate feedback on how well you’re doing.
  4. You know that the activity is doable, that you have the necessary skills to complete the task successfully.
  5. You lose your sense of self and all of your worries and concerns drift away.
  6. You lose track of time and you’re completely focused on the present moment.
  7. There’s an intrinsic motivation—whatever produces flow becomes it’s own reward.

Did you notice similarities on what Katherine is doing in the gathering? Flow is a basic “ingredient” required to facilitate a soulvana “feast”.

Interestingly enough, the idea of flow came into being as result of research on happiness. Researchers began asking themselves: “What makes us happy?” and “When are we most happy”? As a result of this research psychologists realized that being able to enter the flow state–which is a very enjoyable experience–is a key component of happiness.

Conclusion

The ability to get into flow makes personal peak performances possible. It is a great experience and I would love to hear your own ways of getting in the flow or what you experienced being in the Zone.

Till the next time.

23rd April 2016 Connective Session: The Flow

While I truly believe that the choices we make and even the thoughts we think all matter greatly and affect the outcome of our existence, I also believe there is also another force at work and our role is actually more of a co-creator in our own lives. We all have unique gifts to offer the world, and certain passions that lie inside of us wanting to get out. This is our soul’s work. Our calling. It’s what makes us feel totally alive. The universe wants and needs us to do this work. In our daily lives, we’re constantly given signs to try to lead us to our higher self, enabling us to leave a positive impact on the world.

Going with The Flow

Going with the flow isn’t about being passive or lazy. It’s not about just letting things happen “to you”. It’s not aimless wandering. It’s a co-creative act.

“The flow” is the ocean of cosmic intelligence. It’s the substance that carries the whole shebang. The flow is life energy itself.  Going with the flow is responding to cues from the universe.When you go with the flow, you’re surfing Life force. It’s about wakeful trust and total collaboration with what’s showing up for you.

You can certainly worry less about the right move or wrong move. You’re not nuts, or submissive or lazy if you, like, go free form.

You’re a Flow Artist. Or a Ninja of Flow — take your pick. With keen senses, skilled daring, and the heart of a warrior. You’re daring to catch a wave of truth, again, and again, and again.

Go with it. Go with The Flow.

Namaste!

27th Feb 2016 Connective Session: Dramas

When you are not honoring the present moment by allowing it to be, you are creating drama.” ~Eckhart Tolle

Our topic in this gathering is Life Dramas. All gatherers sit in the session with some form of dramas (could have ended or in process) such as work drama, office drama, attachment drama..etc 

Drama seems to be constantly surrounding us. But who creates all these life dramas? The answer is YOU!

How can we avoid unnecessary drama in our lives? In three words, stop creating it. Sound too simplistic? Read on.

More often than not, we create our own drama during peaceful, calm stages in life.

Why?

Boredom. Addiction to excitement. Restlessness. Letting the EGO control our lives.

It’s almost as if we strive for peace and happiness, yet when we’re living it, it’s not enough. Our egos can just be so accustomed to the inflation received during periods of drama — proving that we’re right, controlling people or situations, feeling justified in playing the victim to get attention. This happens when we’ve unleashed the ego to operate under direct influence of external events, rather than directing it via the world within, better known as our higher selves.

The best way to become aware of an “ego drama in the making” is to recognize and acknowledge it.

How can we avoid Life Dramas?

I’m sure you know the exact way to fix everyone’s problems. The reality is you have no idea what you’re talking about, and even if you do, nobody’s interested unless they’re directly asking you. Keep your advice to yourself, and you’ll avoid a lot of unnecessary drama.

  • Mind Your Beeswax and Know Your Limits

Avoid the drama by minding your own business. People have a tendency to over-commit themselves. When you have too many commitments, you can’t focus everything you should on all of them. Things fall by the wayside, and you become a flake, no matter how hard you try. If you keep falling short of peoples’ expectations, they’ll all end up “against” you, and you’ll find yourself surrounded by drama.

  • Focus On Yourself

If you’re focused on getting ahead in your goals, you won’t even notice the drama. You’ll be so zoned in on your own future all the side-drama just fades into the background.

  • Learn To Say No

People will ask you a lot of questions. Don’t get involved. It’s that simple. And if someone you don’t want to talk to texts you with drama, don’t respond. They’ll get bored with it sooner or later.

  • Stop Gossiping and Smile

Gossip is a two-way street. It’s all well and good to tell everyone about how someone else gossips, but that makes you a gossip. The listener is a gossip, too. You don’t get to project your downfalls on others to absolve yourself from responsibility.

When you smile, you become the center of the room. You end up in the driver’s seat. If people come to you with drama, you can steer the conversation elsewhere. They’ll follow you because you seem more confident. If they don’t, you can confidently ignore them and walk away. No more drama.

  • Meditate

Life will always have drama – it’s unavoidable. Instead of letting it get to you, meditate. You’ll never find that fairy tale “happily ever after” life where everything is easy. The richest and poorest, youngest and oldest, biggest and smallest of us, have problems. The grass on both sides of the fence needs constant watering, weeding and mowing.

Without self-made dramas, life floats to the tune of the universe, and it’s this tune that miracles and magic are made of.

Namaste!

13th Feb 2016 Connective Session: Perspectives

With the Live Connective musical notes played by Katherine, we started checking out what lies ahead of us in the next 15 days with the help of our tarot cards through our healing music meditation

We all have our own personal path in life.

Our careers, our relationships, our spiritual path , our goals, our friendships , our material needs… Each decision we make is unique to ourselves.

But if there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s that no matter how different our paths may be, we’re all ultimately aiming for the same thing…

To experience more happiness and bliss.

But what elements of our lives contribute most to our happiness?

In 1960, Jung was interviewed by journalist Gordon Young, who asked, “What do you consider to be more or less basic factors making for happiness in the human mind?”
Jung answered:
“1. Good physical and mental health.
2. Good personal and intimate relationships, such as those of marriage, the family, and friendships.
3. The faculty for perceiving beauty in art and nature.
4. Reasonable standards of living and satisfactory work.
5. A philosophic or religious point of view capable of coping successfully with the vicissitudes of life.”
I find that the more mindful I am about happiness, the happier I become. Take the five factors Jung outlined above. By deliberately seeking to strengthen those elements of my life, I make myself happier.

In the second part of our soul nourishment, we were offered a meditative “meal”. This meditative meal is prepared by an Old Friend. Who is this Old Friend? Well, some of us called this old friend “ My Soul , A more matured and wiser ME” , An old man and even the previous life soul….” all these names are merely “Names”… Names are not important, what’s important are the essence of these “names” – these “Forms.” 

After this meditative meal, Katherine hopes that all of you gained a new perspective of yourself.
Most of us struggle with seeing things from a different perspective. And many of us have to really work to view ourselves in a new light or give ourselves positive feedback. Kath hopes that by sharing this meditative “meal”, it will make it easier for you to pat yourself on the back and widen your horizons. It certainly has for me.

Namaste! Till our next gathering.

*************************************************************

Who we are and What we do?

Our twice monthly Soul Nourishment Gatherings are categorised into four parts:

  1. The Awakening Series
  2. The Re-Alignment / Re-Imprinting Series
  3. The Power Booster Series
  4. The Integration Series

Katherine is committed to the transformation and evolution of human consciousness. This consciousness transformation arises through the integration of ancestral wisdom, which mirrors the evolutionary teaching of life itself. This is done in a supportive environment where people can voluntarily immerse in a guided process of self-realization.

The tools, practices and rites of passage that are cultivated within the sacred container of such a process allow each individual to resolve their cultural conditioning and uncover their unique existential qualities, talents and skills. From this realization, new ways are uncovered of harmoniously channeling and cultivating these gifts within a social community setting.

Being supported in the actualization journey of one’s true self while simultaneously supporting others reflects the symbiotic quality of Nature, which we are all a part of. This is a core value of Katcova. Being a conscious, responsible, open-hearted human being in a human body is the key to the blossoming of life on our planet.

 

10th Jan 2016 Connective Session: Emotion Peeling Process

2016 is going to be an important year of healing for our planet. Let’s all step into the role of a healer and start healing ourselves first. When we feel bliss, our mama earth will too be healed in some level, for we are part of this integrated system together.

Would you like to know your shadow side? Would you like to know how to integrate and cherish unwanted aspects of yourself? Would you like to follow your bliss?

In our gathering, we dived deep into our psyche, find our shadow side and Katherine gave practical advise on how to integrate it and heal ourselves to feel whole again. We used the tarot cards to find our blockages and Katherine advise us to follow our bliss in life.

We have experienced shifts of frequencies thereby shifting our thoughts and energy patterns through our session. Katherine worked to remove deep core emotional blockages in everyone through the support from our Universe. Kath is humbled and honoured of this gift.

Emotional healing is never linear but is likened to peeling an onion.

In the healing process, Katherine guided on what the tarot card is showing us. From the most basic level, we worked deep into our psyche to find our shadow side and what are our blockages and then worked on each consciousness level. This is a process Katherine termed as “Emotion Peeling” Process. Every layers of peeling is similar to “emotion surgery and applying of medication on your emotional wounds”. Kath guarantees that everyone can be healed and will recover back with Love , Joy and Peace. The only catch is We Must Allow the healing to take place.

We started the session with “THE DISSOLVING SHADOWS MEDITATION”

“Why would you want to do this”
Because the Shadow Feminine represents all those parts of ourselves that we hide away because we don’t feel good enough, shameful, ugly etc. But she is persistent and she doesn’t like being suppressed, so she will show up in your life as the Saboteur, the Crazy Maker or the Drama Queen.
When we meet with the Shadow Feminine she provides us with an opportunity to dig beneath the surface, find our beauty, our strengths and our gifts; and in doing so we set ourselves free from being afraid of our shadow.
Meeting and embracing the Shadow Feminine is one gorgeous stepping in reclaiming and owning our Personal Power!

The shadow’s only purpose is to define who and what you are by being what you are not. That is its only purpose. Once that purpose has been fulfilled and you feel your soul again then the shadow can and must dissolve.

You must now live your True Self. The perfect Soul.

Shadows are not you. They are not who you are.
You are Light, You are Peace , Love, Joy, Goodness and this Soul. You are true and honest Light of God, This is what you are in your everyday life. You must honestly be true to yourSelf. Never sublimate, hide from or deny these shadows again always. Look at them honestly and dissolve them immediately.

Trust that all of you have a meaningful and nourishing time together with Kath again.

Namaste! Om !

With Love & Hugs.

19th Dec 2015 Connective Session: Shadow Attributes

Its great to catch up with all of you again after 3.5months break.

We had the chance to discuss on the subject ” Shadow Attributes” or what the common folks called “Inner Darkness”.

Facing and embracing your inner darkness has nothing to do with becoming evil. It is also not an impossible task that will overwhelm and destroy you. It’s looking at all you, and only you can embrace all of you. One of the biggest problems many of us face come from running from our inner darkness. Some people go to great lengths to do all kinds of good deeds to try to erase, counterbalance, or avoid their darkness, but wherever you go, there it is. When unconfronted, the darkness thrives. It exists precisely because we don’t look at it. That is the nature of the dark. It is the absence of the light. Just start to turn and look at it, and already it is evaporating.

In psychology, the dark side of human nature is often described as the alter ego, the id, or the lower self. The great Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung called it the “shadow.” By shadow, he meant the negative side of the personality, the sum total of all those unpleasant qualities that we would prefer to hide.

Kath leveraged on Ghetto Tarot (a photographic interpretation deck) to guide us to interpreting our shadows. We then went on to understanding our shadows and how to dissolve these shadows through the guidance of the tarot.

By knowing our shadows, we created awareness of it. Then we should acknowledged and faced it courageously.

5 Tips For Facing Your Shadows

  1. Get an outside perspective. Many people are so mired in their beliefs that they have no perspective about themselves or how they influence other people. This is good time to ask for outside perspectives from friends and family. You will also have to learn how to listen to criticism, which is always a worthwhile spiritual practice.
  2. Journal. Now, that you have some more perspective, it’s time to sit down and consider what people are telling you about how you act and how you treat others. Why do you act that way? Why do you treat others the way you do? These are some starter questions to get you going.
  3. Be vulnerable. There’s no comfortable way to be uncomfortable, and a lot of those painful feelings are going to make you feel intensely vulnerable. Lean into this discomfort and see what you find.
  4. Keep breathing. Especially when some old pain and trauma starts surfacing, it’s easy to let the ego-self convince us that we’re being overwhelmed and can’t handle it. Keep breathing. Focus even more on your breathing the more intense the emotion coming up. Emotions are always in motion, so they will pass, possibly making space for a new self discovery.
  5. Find help. If you really are struggling, this is why spiritual healers, therapists, psychologist, psychiatrists, and spiritual teachers exist. Asking for help can be a really important step in facing things that feel too frightening to look at on your own.

In our future sessions, we will continue to listen deeply to our souls so that we start setting goals in total alignment with what our SOUL is craving for.

We will continue to discuss topics that will nourished our limited time on earth. Am sure all of you will emerged everyday as more innovative and successful CREATOR of your life.

Namaste.

With Love & Hugs.

06th Sept 2015 Connective Session: Self-Awakening

Thanks for your time with Kath on the 06th Sept 2015 . I am humbled. Thanks Universe and all angels for supporting our learning.

Kath shared so many stuffs. However, the highlights are:

1) Awakening Series – Auto Correction Mechanism 1: “You can have anything you want as long as you don’t need it.”

Need is a fear based energy and anything that comes from need is actually rooted in a sense of lack within you. You cannot—with true satisfaction—manifest what you love when you are in need, or therefore, in the lack of the very thing you desire. When you remember that, you’ll allow things to come to you rather than chase things.

Important minor detail: when you are in need of something, or driving a desire out of fear, it’s not that it won’t manifest because it will, but you will still feel a sense of lack or need, or insecurity of now losing what’s been manifested. You would have experienced this somewhat like when you set out on a goal and you complete it and think to yourself, “is that it?”
The problem: Needing something that you would otherwise love out of fear or lack.

The solution: Rather than focusing on what you desire when you feel a need for something, focus on all the things you do have in your life right now, feel abundant in that, and give space to your desire until the need drops away.

Sometimes you have to be patient, but when the need melts away by focusing on what you already have, you will realize you’re more abundant than you thought, and you can re-connect with what you originally desired out of a pure love rather than need.

2) Awakening Series – Auto Correction Mechanism 2: “You want something in life, ask for it — but from within your heart first.”

It’s not as important to ask another for what you desire as it is to connect with the feeling of love that you have for something. If you are in your heart, then you’re in an open energy, which is the energy of receiving. It’s when you’re open that you attract more possibilities in your life.

And actually, you don’t really “attract” more possibilities! You merely realize that those possibilities have always and will always be there, when you’re open because openness is love and love is infinite.

The problem: Asking for something that you may, or may not, deserve will get you results ONLY sometimes.

The solution: “Don’t look for why you don’t have, look for why you deserve to have.”
If you can focus on the feeling of why you love something with your whole heart, you will feel as though you already have it. When you are one with something, it’s yours. First feel it in your heart, then be patient as you realize you deserve it the more you connect with the feeling of love for it.
NOTE: You don’t need to believe in yourself, or become a deserving person; the way you deserve something is by loving it completely.

The truth is that it’s impossible for you not to have what you truly love. Love is an infinite energy; and it’s your natural state of being.

The next part of our gathering, Kath also shared her thoughts on some questions on spirituality and the so many “Whys.” queried from the participants.

Pondering Questions:

  • What is the purpose of spiritual enlightnment?
  • What is the purpose of leaving the Source and going back to the Source?
  • What happens after we attain enlightenment?

Well, Katherine does not have any “right” answers or a matter of fact, there isn’t any right answers but more of what’s connected to individual souls, nonetheless, she shared her thoughts and ideas.

For Katherine, she choose to live life SIMPLY. Just Breath and that’s IT. Life as IT IS. I am IT. IT is IT. IT is I AM. I AM is I AM. PERIOD.
 
Unknown
Orange Squeeze Experience

Finally, we ended with our ORANGE SQUEEZE and Juice FEAST.
When you squeeze an orange, you get orange juice because that’s what inside. When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes anything other than love, it’s because that’s what you’ve allowed to be inside. Once you take away all those negative things you don’t want in your life and replace then with love, you’ll find yourself living a highly functioning life.

For the next 3 months, Katherine will be out for explorative travels.

We shall meet again on December 2015.

Namaste!

29th August 2015 Connective Session: Self-Alignments

Part 1: Our Alignment Tool – Mantra

In the last connective gathering, Kath shared one of a Alignment Tool: Mantra

Mantra in Sanskrit means tool or instrument of the mind. Mantra are short repeated words or sayings that can be used as a form of relaxation or meditation. They can be simple sounds like “Om” or can be longer sayings, such as: “I breathe in. I breathe out.”

Practicing Mantra can calm one’s mind. We encouraged all to create your own mantra and chant at least 07 times or 108 times if you have the time.

Kath also shared the one-word Mantra – “Shima”

Shima” is a Hopi word meaning “love”. Hopi is a tribe of Native American people. This mantra is about loving everyone in this world.

Part 2: Vibrational Range

When you visualise to overcome something that is wrong, your thoughts are diluted with the “lackful” side of the equation. In time, your physical condition will acquiesce to your dominant thoughts. There is a vibrational frequency range of our thoughts. 
 
Everything about your life is coming to you in response to the focus of your thoughts.
As you imagine and visualize and verbalize your new story, in time you will believe the new story, and when that happens, the evidence will flow swiftly into your experience. 
 
The Law of Attraction is responding to your thought, not to your current reality. When you change the thought, your reality must follow suit. If things are going well for you, then focusing upon what is happening now will cause the well-being to continue, but if there are things happening now that are not pleasing, you must find a way of taking your attention away from those unwanted things.
 
You have the ability to quickly change your patterns of thought, your vibrational range varies and eventually… your life experience.
 
Every subject could be seen as 2 subjects – “what is wanted” and the “lack of what is wanted.” 
Each subject Has a Varied Vibrational Range. So merely focusing upon the subject, or idea, of money is but the beginning of necessary focusing, molding of the vibrational energy, required to bring money to your experience. You need to aware where are you at the vibrational range by understanding your emotions and how you feel. You get what you feel about when you think about!
What is actually happening in your experience relative to the subject of money always matches the essence of your vibrational offering. Observing what is manifesting, or happening to you, can give you accurate reading of where you are on the vibrational scale BEFORE things manifest.

Try this Exercise

Take 15 minutes daily, thinking of pleasant scenarios regarding your body, with the sole intent of enjoying your body and appreciating its strength and stamina and flexibility and beauty. When you visualize for the joy of visualizing rather than with the intention of correcting some deficiency, your thoughts are more pure and, therefore, more powerful. 

We shall meet again next gathering.

Namaste!

26th July 2015 Connective Session: Triggers and Vortex

In our latest gathering, we shared about our Triggers.

We’re surrounded by all types of triggers. You see a favourite snacks and your saliva ticks; the sight of a stapler invokes all the stresses of work; looking at that one book always gives you ideas. These triggers prime a response in your brain for all types of habits. Giving your environment an overhaul—with your triggers in mind—can make you more productive, happier, conscious expansion and goal oriented.

Identifying your triggers is key.

Take a moment to notice any strong negative emotion you’re experiencing. If you’re not feeling anything negative now, congratulate yourself, and then think about the last time you were upset. Whether your unpleasant feelings are present or past, don’t judge or resist them. Send your memory backward in time to find the moment when you switched from “okay” to “not okay.” Did you begin feeling bad at breakfast this morning? While going to bed last night?

You won’t even think to identify your trigger until after it’s pulled. But with continued attention, you’ll start recognizing triggers sooner, and one day, even as you’re firing off shouts or tears, part of you will be saying, “Oops, there I go again.” You’ll then have a choice: Continue to blast, or put the safety on your psyche.

Throughout our last gathering, Kath mentioned many times about being in alignment with our vibrational vortex.

So what’s is Vortex?

The vortex is alike to alignment to Source energy. (Or whatever you call Universe, God, All That Is, etc.)

Being in the vortex means you’re at one with who you really are, you’re feeling fab, and in vibrational alignment to your desires. It’s represented by feelings like enthusiasm, inspiration, passion, joy, and appreciation.

Being out of the vortex means you’re energetically kinked, not letting in the good stuff you’ve been calling in. It often feels frustrated, hopeless, fearful, or angry.

Being in the vortex means you’re experiencing the kind of alignment that fosters magic and miracles. It’s where you get inspired answers to your questions. It’s where things come together beautifully. It’s where you feel on top of the world!

You can tell whether you’re in or out of the vortex based on how you feel. When you feel good, you’re in. When you feel crappy, you’re not in.

The vortex is also where you want to take action from. That “aligned” state is a great time to make the phone calls, place the orders, sign the agreements, say “I do,” create the business plan, etc.

Because if you do anything outside the vortex, it’s not likely to pay off in ways you’d prefer.

So getting in is pretty important for having a life of ease and flow like deliberate creators know it can be.

Are you in your vortex today?

Passionately Sharing,

Katherine Goh

Lessons learnt when i pay my last respect to Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Since one of my watsapp friend told my husband and me now that paying our last respect to Mr Lee Kuan Yew is operating 24hrs in the parliament, we decided perhaps should go and pay our last respect to our First Prime Minister. Flooded with media that Mr Lee was our founding father, i feel a more appropriate and sensitive way to address Mr Lee Kuan Yew, he was one of our founding fathers instead. I read that there are other founding fathers of our nation as well besides Mr Lee. See the shot shown below. The so-called “Big 5” ministers of Singapore’s founding Cabinet members in 1959.

IMG_7790

We left home about 1.45am on 26th mar 2015, thinking should had lesser crowds as its in the wee hours. But No !
Arrive boat quay around 2am. While searching for the queue start point, we met a nice couple asking us if we are going to Parliament House and should join the queue at Hong Lim park. This is my first contact of “One consciousness” in this urban city for such a long time.

I was amazed and proud of the orderly queueing manner of Singaporeans. Not much people “cut queue” except for a very very small minority throughout the 2.5hrs queuing.

Bottled drinks and strawberry buns were given out along the queue-route.

The queue no longer was as reported like yesterday afternoon that needed to queue for 6-8hrs.I think we were lucky. It’s was a breezy night. I took the opportunity to re-look at our financial hub in this night. It was a peaceful night. So much has changed in this part of Singapore where I used to work there some 17 years ago.

My husband commented we were actually walking down the path of LKY.

The route: Hong Lim Park- OCBC Centre- Singapore Land Tower- Bank Of China- Fullerton Hotel- Cavenach Bridge – Victoria concert hall – Singapore River – Civilisation Museum-Parliament House.

Photo below: Half-Mast at Fullerton Hotel

Normally, I would not have the chance to walk along this route. This time I took the opportunity to stop by, reflect,read some of the statues’ descriptions and even saw Deng Xiao Ping Figurine at Singapore River. I feel that although I am a Singaporean, I have not understand deep enough of my nation. Somehow, I took Singapore and Mr Lee for granted. At this moment, I am deep with gratitude for all that he had done for Singapore, both right or wrong.

When we were nearer to the last stop, there are condolences cards and pens available for those of us who wants to write our condolences messages. We wrote ours briefly.

Photo: The last stop outside parliament house

IMG_7788

We were then directed to the area for inspection; checks on our bags. (Tips: As there will be security checks, it is also advisable not to carry too many items, to cut down waiting time and ensure a smooth flow of the queue.)

Photo: Half-Mast at The Parliament House

FullSizeRender_1

Honestly, all came a little fast. Before I knew it, I am already inside Parliament House and the photo of Mr Lee was not far.

There were bodyguards and ushers around and one officer kept on saying: “move forward… Move Forward…” As I walked, I bowed 3 times… But it was just too fast to process any thoughts… My thoughts only started to conjure when I am out of the entrance door. And there I saw queue waiting to enter the Parliament House for their turn.  The snake-like queue do not seemed to stop forming since 25th March 2015 and may just be like this till the 29th March 2015.

Although, I felt it was just too fast for me to pay my last respect to Mr Lee but based on mathematical calculations, this has to be the way. Imagine 4 millions people going to pay their last respect within 4 days? Say 1 million people per day, that will be 41,666 people an hour and 1736 people in a minute..that is an enormous figures.

So what are the lessons i learned ?

1) The Unity of ONE Singaporeans; One Nation. I feel it in the air…in the gestures of Singaporeans.

2) A world-class civilised Singaporeans. Look at our orderly peaceful queue. Period!

3)An efficient Singapore. Look at how fast rest stops were setup along the routes, complimentary drinks and buns were given..

4) A continuous learning and willingness to change for the better attitude. Always fine-tuning to better systems. Look at the decisions to operate 24hrs public transport system or the 24hrs opening of the Parliament House for public to pay their last respect to Mr Lee and a separate lane for those on wheelchairs, who are pregnant, with special needs, and families with young children and elders .

Honestly, there were decisions of Mr Lee that I do not agree, such as his autocratic leadership, too much control over his people and nation medias alike or his imprisonment over his opponents without trial, etc. But no doubts, the results of Singapore today shows what was the best for Singapore at his time. And he did what was necessary for the best of our Singapore at that time. Who am I to say he was right or wrong? He understands Singapore deeper and wider than I did. Period.

Mr Lee will lives in the hearts of all Singaporean. He will continue to be our learning mentor through the wisdom he left for us. He left us with systems – systems of values of meritocracy, multi-racialism and non-corruptibility and SIngaporean should built the foundations laid by our pioneers.

Now, my concern as like many younger generations Singaporeans are: What will be the future of our nation? How can we do our part to continue building a better Singapore? Providing Singaporeans and our future generations a better sustainable lives?

As I am writing this, I don’t know. All I know is if Singaporeans are United, Strong, Determined, Never Give Up Attitude, Flexible and always look out for better ways to improve ourselves (not being complacent), WE, Singaporeans will Stand Tall and live the Spirit of Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

31st Jan 2015 Connective Session: Stop Trying to learn

Good Day Angels of Light,

It was awesome to gather with all of you again last saturday.

We have invested our time to connect and appreciate the following concept: Stop Trying to learn

Life is not a school. We are here not to learn but to Create. The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek, therefore, not to find out Who You Are, seek to determine Who You Want to Be.

Life (as you call it) is an opportunity for you to know experientially what you already know conceptually. You need learn nothing to do this. You need merely remember what you already know, and act on it.

Your job on Earth, therefore, is not to learn (because you already know), but to remember Who You Are. And to remember who everyone else is.

Our life has nothing to do with self-discovery. And we have nothing to learn. Stop looking all over the place for “the answers” – whatever they are – and start looking for the questions – the inquiries which are most important in our life- and give them answers.

Passionately Sharing,

Katherine Goh

 

25th Jan 2015 Connective Session: Mediation and The Money Game

Good day Beings of the flow…

Meditation helps us to quieten our mind. Allow us a space to relax and surrender with ease. Everyone should commit to at least once in a day to meditate even if it’s just for 1 min. Let’s make it our passion together to reach inwards to ourselves.

We then invested our time to share about the thought: Rest and Relax. The True surrender. Through the cycles of meeting with basic Space – as the element in which All Exists- we learn not only to dare to surrender- and die into this Space, but to relax and embrace fully the rest in the Blackness of non-existence and the Peace which is it. To truly awaken, the passion of Life needs to turn towards the silence of Space.

The third part of our time we discussed – “In fact, you have this root thought about just about everything. There’s not enough money, there’s not enough time, there’s not enough love, there’s not enough food, water, compassion in the world….. whatever there is that’s good, there’s just not enough.”

This race consciousness of “not-enough-ness” creates and recreates the world as you see it. It is time now to adopt a New Thought about all this.

We should re-programmed our mind to reach out to 

Concept 1: There’s enough

Concept 2: Turn around your life by turning around your values.

Till our next meetup.

Passionately Sharing,

Katherine Goh

10th Jan 2015 Connective Session: Our true relationship with God

Good evening enlightened Beings

Grateful for your time with me last sat.

We dedicated a portion of our time to discuss about our health-Your Health is your creation. We unconsciously creates our health.

The second part of our time we discussed and shared about our true relationship with God. We are the body of God. Our relationship with GOD should be based on Love and not Fear. Remember to follow up the exercise in the sheets I have given to u.

The third part of our dialogue, Kat shared about the concept: All of us are Gods. It is too huge a thinking? No. Absolutely Not! For we are part of God, We are God.

Last class, we find God together. That is always the best way to find God. TOGETHER. We shall never find God apart. I mean that two ways. I mean we shall never find God so long as we are part. For the first step in finding that we are not apart from God is finding that we are not apart from each other, and until we know and realise that of us are ONE, we cannot know and realise that we and God are One.

God is not apart from us, ever, and we only THINK we are apart from God.

Kat is grateful for the learning journey together and will treasure these moments.

Namaste! Till our next class…

20th Dec 2014 Connective Session: 3 steps to Raising Our Consciousness

What is higher consciousness?

Most people, when asked what Consciousness is, will reply that it is the state of being awake. That is most certainly true, for that it is. But when people reply with this answer, they are almost always talking about the state of being physically awake. This is not the kind of Consciousness we’re talking about here. For one could be physically awake and still be largely or totally unconscious in their overall awareness.

Therefore, we feel that the most connective definition is “Consciousness is the ability of a being to recognize patterns and meaning with respect to events taking place, both within oneself and in the external realm in which the self exists and operates.”

This ability is the fundamental driving force of all Creation. It could be said that all of Creation itself IS Consciousness in various forms and states of awareness. Consciousness is required for matter to exist. Consciousness creates the observable effects we perceive in our world. Everything that exists in the seemingly “external” domain first exists as a construct in Consciousness before becoming manifested through form.

Consciousness, or the lack thereof, is the agency responsible for the conditions in which we find ourselves, in all times and all places.

The recap of our last session….

In our last connection, some of you tap into your higher consciousness through meditation and others through oracle ritual. Both methods are alike to gateways, opening the door to tap into your higher consciousness. Meditation or oracle rituals are just some ways to “lighten” yourself  so that you can tap into or raise your consciousness. It is often portrayed as some sort of super-human accomplishment that will grant us spiritual super powers… but it is simply about becoming freer within ourselves. The freer we feel within – not “because” of this or that – the LIGHTER we are. Becoming enlightened is simply about lightening up. We can now forget about becoming something more “special.” Raising our consciousness is simply the process of lightening up our load of baggage so we can move freely and fluidly as the light beings that we already are!

Here are 3 tips and insights that have personally helped me lighten up my own load and shift my consciousness

1. Be You in Every Moment  

Simple? Yep.. IT IS SIMPLE! Replace pretense with your presence. You don’t have to wait until you feel “good,” “perfect,” “enlightened” or wait for something to happen for you to relax into your own being. You don’t need to look at anothers journey and compare, judge or doubt yourself either. This type of thinking just tricks you out of the perfection of you in this moment anyways. No matter what you are feeling or what the situation is, just be you and let the rest unfold.

2. Love Freely

Many of us have adopted the belief that love can hurt, or that conditions need to be met before we can allow love to flow. If we truly want to lighten up, we need to let the doors of our hearts open even if this means releasing built up pain from the past. This will not only release our old perceptions of conditional love, but will also give us the opportunity to experience the freedom of unconditional love for others and most importantly ourselves.The truth is, love always flows effortlessly between all beings regardless of external appearances and roles. We ARE Love, and we are one! When we let go of the fear of feeling and allow energy to flow in and out of the heart, we will realize it is not love that hurts. Unconditional love is our natural state; what is “hurting” are the protections and conditions we build around it.

3. Let Go of the Fear of Feeling

Discovering who we are is no different than opening the door of a house – the house being a metaphor for our human mind. It’s a great step, we’re letting some light in! But does it mean we have visited it thoroughly? Does it necessarily mean we have experienced each room, opened every closet, and even spent some time in the “scary” basement? Perhaps we have quickly peaked in each room, but have we taken the time to explore them fully, meditate in them, open the windows to let some light in, and perhaps do a little clean up? Are we okay with leaving the doors open for us and others to see?The light of our awareness isn’t limited to entering what is comfortable and acceptable to the mind. It is here to illuminate all rooms – even those dusty closets with all of the old, emotionally charged baggage we have been reluctant to explore. What has laid dormant within each room is often ignored. But now, the winds of change are blowing all doors open and many of us are feeling and re-experiencing many emotions that we have once protected ourselves from feeling again. The only thing that blocks us from seeing the blessing in letting the wind blow us open is the fear of feeling. When we choose to not be controlled and defined by this fear anymore, we naturally keep all of our doors open knowing that it cannot break who we are, but only identities with old patterns that were limiting our inner-freedom and peace anyways.

“The intent of this journey isn’t to ‘feel good,’ but rather to feel whats actually unfolding within us right now. In other words, our intent isn’t to feel better, but to get better at feeling.

Our authentic state of presence is joyful, harmonious, peaceful and loving. However, to awaken to our presence initially requires journeying through the current condition of the emotional body.” – Michael Brown, The Presence Process

07th Dec 2014 Connective Session: My life as a trailer

Last session we invested our time to watch a short film, “my life as a trailer”. Personally i love this short film. How about you? Imagine your life story as a movie trailer. That’s Julia assignment in the film. As she struggled to define who she really is, she begins to see the bigger picture. And I hoped the 15min film can set you thinking of the question:”who am I?”.

No one told us what we were. No one told us we should go. No one told us that it would be easy. Someone once said that we are our dreams. If we don’t dream we are no longer alive. We’ll fight for our dreams, we’ll pursue our passions, because we believe that the meaning of life is not following anyone else’s path. The meaning is in forging our own paths towards what we love. And despite the difficulties, every fall teaches us how to carry on.

Reflective questions: 

1) What life choices have you made trying to please someone else?
2) How would you like your life movie to end?

At the end of our life adventure, what are we after? Might it be life? What is the ultimate objective of all experiences?Of all adventure? Of life? Is it achieving goals or moving towards them? Is it reaching the horizon or discovering the landscapes we cross to get there? Is life crossing the finish line or the emotions and feelings inside ourselves? We are people forged from dreams, emotions and feelings.

Real life is what we carry inside us and only in silence can we truly explore ourselves.
