I see the world, not as it is, but as I am,
And I am in spiritual unity with God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of God.

Your heart will lead you to liberation. 

Life after Death: Working in bardo

Often, it happens when I am in a state of reflection. Not meditation necessarily, but a subdued mental state of reflection or rest. Sometimes this astral communication takes place amidst all that may be going on in my environment.

Recently, I heard “lidocaine”. I’ve learned to pause when I begin to interpret this type of information. I began to research lidocaine. I then perceived from first person communication “I died from chewing lidocaine”.

Not all souls use a direct form of communication. In one incidence a girl impressed a feeling upon me. It was so intense that I had to stop what I was doing and lay down. I didn’t initially discern that I was feeling another persons agony until she touched my shoulder from spirit and told me her name. Point being, souls have various forms of communication when disembodied just as we choose different forms of contact while living.

Recently, my experience was different. I’m honest in saying that, I initially told the soul, you can’t hang around here. You can’t attach yourself to me. That sounds cold and ignorant, but… it was my genuine reaction. I took time to sit with the entire experience. I continued my day.

A few hours later I was driving and perceived “Mom and Dad are fighting again”. Immediately I knew it was child consciousness of the soul from the morning. I reflected upon my initial reaction that morning and suddenly a knowing came over my entire being. The knowing was that I’m not doing anything. I’m a sounding board in a sense. I’m present and accessible in the plane of existence where his soul is experiencing his journey.

The soul came to reflect what he needed to experience to move through levels of bardo. If you aren’t familiar, our bardo is comprised of stages of existence between lifetimes. We co-create and experience bardo as we exist and process awareness while out of body. The knowing of bardo certainly exists prior to bon po and tibetan Buddhism, but that is the origin I’m currently familiar with.

Pioneers in human consciousness who work with these levels during life while in or out of body also use the term bardo. Those who facilitate past life work utilize the term to describe the stages in between lives.

I’ve worked with various souls as they travel through their bardo. Some are very clear in transmitting what their journey is like and ask me questions about what they perceive. Souls may be clear that it is their time to up level into pure light. I’ve experienced that.

This particular soul met me as an embodied guide in his bardo. He helped me in sitting with my denial of the work I’m embodied to do. I feel this resistance is always rooted in our focus on free will. This resistance is similar to resisting our own interpersonal work. Honest reflection will allow us to see our aligned intention.

Often we have created devices of protection from processing our wounds. We tend to focus on this human space as being our own to do with what we please. When the higher self is aligned with this work and these processes- there really isn’t a personality level choice about it. I’ve often observed this conflict regarding inner personal development work.

The soul I speak of here communicated a piece of child consciousness to me. He utilized my embodied awareness to connect the lidocaine use with his childhood trauma in absorbing his parents in conflict. He reflected off of my sounding board how his child consciousness was related to the practice of chewing lidocaine, which ultimately took his life. The root cause of patterns of behavior often remain unconscious while we are living. 

I facilitate a process to connect pieces of child consciousness to adult patterns in order to eventually release that child consciousness that is frozen in time when the wound was experienced. Quite often we fail to connect our adult manifestations, our patterns of behavior with the child experiencing a perceived trauma. Often the adult manifestations don’t initially appear to connect with the frozen childhood consciousness.

The soul received what he needed and was not heard from again. The soul served me in advancing my realization of rejecting my work, my self. As if my time is my own not to serve with! I was able to sit with myself in attempting to deny him. When the child consciousness was expressed, I received a full body direct knowing that I need not do anything but reflect. I had no choice in my presence. I was aligned to be a human embodied guide for this soul.  These abilities are embodied.

Channeling Guided Visualization

Channeling is a source of healing for all vessels receiving the energy being channeled. 

I’m thriving with the guided visualization technique taught by Rachel Eva of Integrative Wellness Academy.  I learned the general structure of this technique as I completed her course work and received my certification as an Integrative Wellness and Life Coach.

My first experience utilizing guided visualization began with the intention of meeting the child consciousness in my client.  I wanted to reach the young child in the prime realization of the original wound as experienced in this life.  My intention was to meet the child, embrace, and unify the child consciousness into my client in preparation for energy healing. 

As I opened the space for the guided visualization, I was pleasantly surprised at the power of the technique.  My client went into a state of being that could be described as provoked and immediate deep sleep.  I’m referring to the state of consciousness that is induced when the vessel comes into contact with frequencies of energy that the body can not sustain in the personality level of consciousness.  One marker of witnessing this sate is involuntary eye movement in client. 

My client remained in this state of consciousness that could be described as a sleep state as I channeled.  The energy passed through my body in waves and was directed to fill her vessel.  As my client shifted states of consciousness a series of images began to be relayed to my mind screen vision.  I remained verbally relaying the visualization I experienced, which my client does not consciously recall.  I received a series of visions that represented the work we were engaged in that day.

What I intended to achieve via visualization:

  • Integrate aspects of child consciousness
  • Move into the wound as experienced by the child consciousness
  • Invite the chid to connect with the current wound as experienced in adult life

What I experienced:

  • Symbolic series of visualizations relating to my clients personal work
  • Channeled information and frequencies of energy to support client and my self
  • A trance state in client that allowed the channeled transmission to integrate

This guided visualization is adapting per scenario.  I may prep my client with breath work and move into a guided visualization moving energy through the clients body.  This clears levels of the energy field allowing energy blocked in meridians to connect with the consciousness held where the energy is blocked. I surrender to my intuition and follow the transmission of information that I am channeling to my client. 

I’m fascinated in experiencing energetic frequencies in my body along with the visions that may contain direct experience or symbolism relating to my client. Symbolism proves to serve as a language of the human subconscious. Like any language, our definitions may vary. Still, in descriptive experience this shared symbolic language may set the scene for new platforms of the psyche to emerge. This translates to new patterns of behavior.

My container utilizing integrative coaching methods continues to expand. 

I’m witnessing the healing that occurs in opening my vessel to channel energy through visualization.  All Praise Due.
