Chasing Life

I first want to start by apologizing…for some reason word press was not working and every time I thought I was just sending out the “Sedona Experience” I was sending it out to all outlets.  My blog is hollysloveolution.wordpress.com  I don’t know how I was putting the @ symbol in there.

So now that I am getting somewhat grounded back into life, I realize how going away, leaving the space your live your “daily” life is so awakening. You get to experience a new environment, meet new people, and become more conscious. This is really how we should consciously live our lives everyday, but we get attached. We get attached to the way we like things, our coffee, our exercise regimen, and we begin to live almost in a slight trance. It is actually quite fascinating.

While I was in Sedona, I learned a lot about hypnosis and the conscious/subconscious mind. Something as simple as a presenter videoing themselves in front of a library of books to empower the suggestion of intelligence, power, and respect. Once you are aware you start to see these suggestions everywhere, they are soo subtle, but powerful.

Hollywood also helps us out with all kinds of suggestions in life. Matter of fact, watching t.v. is considered a light trance which is why marketing efforts are so high and specific to their audience.  I love to settle at night with bad tv, although some shows have just gotten crazy. I think it is important to dumb down a bit, but how dumb it the question.

Recently, Hollywood has produced a few movies that are brilliant suggestions. The first “The Lego Movie”. It is an amazing movie written to awaken its watchers. It is about “Lord Business” (The government) hypnotizing the entire population. I don’t want to share too much because I believe that it is worth the watch whether you have kids or not. The suggestions of awakening are quite amazing and my heart was full as Sawyer shared what he thought the movie was about.

This quote sums it up!

“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.”
― John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

On the complete opposite side, there is a new series called “Chasing Life” I thought it to be an interesting title as I am sure we have all felt like we are chasing life at one point or another. However, when I watched the first episode I was just dizzy. It is about a young girl who accidentally finds out she has Leukemia. She decides that she is not going to tell anyone because no one can handle this and her life has just gotten on track with work and love. I felt my belly sink as I thought how ridiculous a scenario to be. The fact that they make an illness just seem like a bad day. The suggestion that we should just accept the word “cancer” like brushing our teeth. This was so unrealistic I couldn’t even get past the first 10 minutes.

As I have shared before the definition of the word cancer:

1 a malignant and invasive growth or tumor, especially one originating in epithelium, tending to recur after excision and to metastasize to other sites or any disease characterized by such growths.
2.
any evil condition or thing that spreads destructively; blight.

I am pretty confident when I got the phone call on Oct. 06, 2011 I was not going to act as though I didn’t have time in my life, but I certainly was not going to let it define me. My journey was a gift from God to awaken to the truths around me. A journey that took me back to my soul to learn some amazing lessons. Life will give us these gifts, the greatest is to “wake up”. This doesn’t mean you are further ahead, more enlightened it just means you are connected to the simple fact that we are one with God and each other.

 

Many blessings,

Sedona Story

 

 

Sitting in Sedona, Arizona is like sitting in a painting, it really is surreal to think that God created such a beautiful place that is so open to all the ideas of the world. Walking through the streets of Sedona is so warm and welcoming, as if the people have known you for years. As I am touring this intimate town, I have met many of the locals that have shared similar stories of the beauty this town offers. One of the many reasons tourists come to Sedona is for the energy vortexes. One gentleman told me that it is believed that Sedona has the longest latitudinal and longitudinal lay lines in the world, making the magnetism so strong that it effects all living things on many levels. This is where many tourists come to experience this strong scientific evidence and in turn maybe it creates a spiritual renewal, a sacred space of healing.

This same gentleman also shared with me a local vortex that is called the Buddhist Steeple to the locals or Amitabha Stupa to many. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, but as I climbed the red dusty walkway that wound through the dessert forrest it was powerful. As I walked into the opening there stood a huge, beautiful temple that was a simple peace park. All visitors will read the journey and many leave an offering to their God. The journey is to walk around the temple three times asking God for an answered prayer or wish. It also shares the history of why the park is so healing. The main reason is that when people come to this sacred space they show respect and honor. Almost as if we undress from our costumes and immediately know that we are all the same no matter what your religious beliefs. The energy was so healing and as I walked my journey I asked God for a sacred sign. Immediately, I felt such a presence (first picture is an orb, an angel) and then felt such empowerment that was met with sadness. I don’t know if I can explain that further, but the message was simple. We set expectations for people in our lives, for ourselves. Many of us have such strong beliefs that we shut off our hearts when someone else has an opposing belief about life or our relationship. This is similar to sending ourselves into a maze only knowing there is one way out, the ego is just trying to keep us separate from “our God”. Often times this judgement creates a sense of anger or dismissal that is not really a part of who we are in our truth, our soul. It is when we release the expectation of others and surrender excepting responsibility for even placing a limiting expectation of another soul that we heal. When we realize the body is simply a costume and under it our soul. We are all here for one thing and that is to learn and love. It seems simple, yet it is not. The mind wants to send us into the maze, chasing our tail, until we find that freedom. I realized that I have held a lot of expectations on others and this has always led to suffering. It is when I have excepted and met people where they are that I have found love. Embracing that there may be a different perspective. It has not always meant that the person will stay a part of my life, but when I have been truly operating out of the love of my soul I have realized this simple realization. Looking to the past to remember that this left me feeling the truth of the power that we hold with our soul.

When I left I felt so grateful for this reminder. It is such a challenge, but so empowering. As I walked down the path back toward the road that started this auspicious journey, I was so grateful to have been led to this message. Right as I was taking my last step off the red dirt, I looked back and saw a cactus plant that had almost completely returned to the dirt, except for this one small part. To me this was a perfect reflection of the lesson. It only takes one small part of your soul to remember that we are one with God and we are one with each other.
