There was plenty of laughter and joy surrounding this lovely couple on their wedding day. Josh and Lisa were married at Emily's Ten Oaks Ranch, on a chilly, but beautiful day surrounded by an intimate group of loved ones.
Music brought them together, and it will be music that sees them through this new phase of their lives as husband and wife. Meagan and Bryan made their dream come true of being married outside, in this beautiful venue, The Hub at Cedar Creek, in Cedarburg, WI, surrounded by their loved ones. Congratulations, you two song birds! 10/6/18 ~ Sarah Harrison, Wedding Officiant for Koru Ceremony

I have spent time going within during this time of transition of seasons and haven’t posted much... on purpose. With every passing day comes change. With every passing day comes opportunity to heal and grow towards the light. As the seasons change to darkness, I retreat within to find the light.
My meditation practice has shifted to more stretching and strength training with Yoga, but still supported with my Qigong/Tai Chi for energy flow.
This morning, I sat in stillness and listened to a guided meditation from Insight Timer. I share my journal entry with you as inspiration to find your light within.
Spent the Meditation in my base Chakras. Felt first and second opening. Felt stagnation, anxiety in my third. Filled my self with love and light and imagined the dark surrounding my Self Chakra breaking off, melting away. After the meditation I still feel a tightness in my stomach, but I am holding optimism of knowing and with knowing comes choice and with choice of love comes healing.
Blessings to all of you.
For myself, I am a teacher of self awareness of the ego. For others, I am a preschool teacher and a teacher of Tai Chi and so, I offer an excerpt from Samael Aun Woer’s Books, Fundamentals of Gnostic Education, p. 5, “ Fear is one of the barriers of intelligence. Students with fear do not dare to disagree, and blindly accept as articles of faith whatever different authors state. It is useless for teachers to talk about audacity if they are fearful. Teachers must be free of fear. Teachers who fear criticism, who are afraid of what people might say, etc., cannot be truly intelligent. The true objective of education must be to put an end to fear and to awaken the consciousness. What is the purpose of passing examinations if we continue being afraid and unconscious?”
Sat in Meditation, still, body supported. Asked my higher self to go to the ruler of karma, Anubis, in the molecular world/astral plane, ask for help in negotiating my karma, to pay my trespasses/debts with my acts of kindness. Told my body that I would leaving for a time and practiced leaving my body...”I am flying to the corner of my living room, I am flying to the corner of my dinning room, I can see my body sitting in the chair. I am flying above my house, I see the garden, I fly around the big maple tree, I fly above the rain clouds and see the stars, I fly towards the brightest star in the Ursa Major (Big Dipper) constellation, I enter their atmosphere and fly around the sky asking for friends of light and love. I fly home to my body.
9 Phases Qigong, holding last form (Dissolve) in physical stillness while sending my higher self on an out-of-body flight around the room, then outside around my neighborhood.
Deepak Chopra says:
"According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous?
Are you in the miraculous? Is this the time of your life to make the choice to live in the synchronization of your nirvana? Recall and share if you wish of some of your experiences of synchronicity that has occurred in your life.
