Weird new study-Spotless Mind?

There’s yet another study out there, yep, something better you can do for life altering changes to your -self through drugs without having to do any work on your part, which by the way is impossible.  There might be a possibility to alter the things you want to forget according to what this study professes to say i.e. erase bad memories.

Science or someone is always working on accommodating the public.  Get your attention with drugs, quick fixes, and then what?  A few years later after you’ve been guinea pigged out you find out your worse off than when you started or by then very altered.  Ahhh, but altered how?

Wow, social media marketing has everyone already doing  just that.  How you ask? Texting, Facebook, drugs, booze, sex, money, work, judging each other too mention a few things.  Those tactics are a temporary solution and must be kept up as a steady behavior to have the effective outcome you’re looking for.

That outcome would lead you to not feel yourself (any pain) and then check out what everyone else is doing “wrong” or “better than you.”
Erasing a bad memory is your job; better yet how about integrating a learning about yourself. What if doing that made you feel better or good about you?

You actually have to be a participant in accomplishing this. Deleting or erasing bad memories is like saying well let’s just induce Alzheimer’s  when you’re 20 or 30 or 40…   No, you don’t want to be partially here, or do you?  Ugggh.

If you have sad or “bad” memories then you are challenging yourself to come to terms with them.  Buried in your memories are golden nuggets of goodies.  Ever hear the saying there is a silver lining in every black cloud, or you can make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear?

True, you can focus on a really bad memory as just that, a really bad, sad or awful memory and keep yourself all tripped up in how terrible it is.  If you are feeling guilty, ashamed, embarrassed, betrayed, abandoned, played, tricked, or you know you did something really awful -well now is the time to wrap your arms around it and get to healing yourself.

Really, when you start to realize that if you put in conscious effort to deal with what ever your negative belief or feelings are you are addressing your Karma.  Yes, your Karma, not your fantasy that someone should get a negative payback for what their offense is that you are judging.

Karma is not a payback.  It is something in your life that you created (in another life) that is a current event that you now have an opportunity to heal.  In the event is the learning.  Karma is unresolved or unfinished learning of something you did in other lives.  It didn’t really even initiate here in this lifetime.  Whether you believe this concept or not think about it.

Some really intense non-stop event keeps coming up in your life, you may even be thinking: “I’m a really good/nice person to be having this much sh#* happening” right?  Well, this sh.. is an accumulation from other lives that was left unresolved that you are bringing up in this life to figure it out.

It isn’t going to just go away.  You have to bring your own Self parts back together to make your Self whole.  Complete, you become complete and you complete the learning and the really good news is you don’t have to do that karmic pattern ever again.  You learned it, you earned it.

This is what I do as a energy coach, spiritual energy broker, conscious wake up call guide, and your own personal champion.  What you long to unravel regarding your emotional pain or very confused beliefs about yourself, we go about this together and get to the source no matter which life this happened in.

There are tools for this.  You learn how to use them, you learn which ones you need, you awaken a part of you that was asleep from too much fear. What ever the block we unravel together in your story you will be braver and feel the peace you desire.

There is no Spotless Mind medicine.  You actually want to know what is going on so you can restore all parts of YOURSELF.

Be courageous and brave and present with yourself.  You have all that you need to do this with in yourself.

Much Love and belief in you, Rita

A Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde

I wanted to guide each of you through the next 10 days that are left of the Mercury retrograde. You could have experienced some deep emotional changes and physical changes. When we process things at the emotional level and the etheric level, our bodies are going to feel it for us, it can’t happen any other way. You could have had a psychic or spiritual flu, deep aches and pains, nausea, headaches and wanting to sleep and sleep and sleep some more. You were processing what you learned, changed, and or let go of, in the retrograde.

Remember that what you were processing was the information you wanted to work on, the pre-shadow period, and writing everything down and taking notice of how you were processing it so you could take action.

This was about being on purpose for yourself.

In the two week pre-shadow period, May 4 up to May 19th, you were taking notes during this time, what is up from your past, whom are you thinking about constantly, what new projects are you going to be involved in, and perhaps what are you thinking of consistently?

Then the three weeks of the full retrograde started on May19th. This is where you then got to dig into the information that came up and keep an overview of it. And then you got to take action, on what you are going to change, let go of, heal, and do differently. Especially speaking up for yourself and being in your truth.

The integration, Post Shadow time, June 11th until June 27th is when you will begin your integration with the information you were working on and being present with yourself so you could make changes. If there are any “loose ends” you get to clean up, pull together and finish any unfinished business you might have not gotten to in the 21 days of the full Retrograde.

Mercury is about communication, but this retrograde is about our personal awareness and changing and upgrading our personal communication styles. If, in the past, we’ve had trouble using our truth, our fifth chakra, our throat and the back of the throat, which is our responsibility to ourselves to use our truth, we could have experienced some uncomfortable symptoms.
Symptoms that indicate you might need to be working on clarity,or because you are working on it and it is uncomfortable, could show up as stuffy noses, congestion, muscle soreness, third eye congestion (sinuses) ,dizzy or being light- headed.

Headaches or migraines can be common outcomes. You are being upgraded and your brain and soul connection can feel very overwhelming during this period. If there is an overload and you resist change or suppress change, this might translate into headaches/migraines.

When it is ignored and compressed, and we aren’t revealing our own truth, these symptoms can be an indication that we might want to use our truth/self-awareness more. During these three weeks you get to practice your own revelations to yourself where you might want to use your communication. You may not have been using it very well or at all. This can be a fun exploration and doesn’t need to be frightening. And if you are putting into practice what you learned about yourself in pre-shadow, you will have a greater perspective of your life.

As we go into the integration period, you will feel the power of the retrograde. It could feel like there is more pressure than usual. Along with this retrograde, Codes were changed and upgraded in the planet, which could have felt like increased pressure, which also affects our etheric, physical and emotional bodies.

The pre-shadow period helped to put things together and bring things forward, the actual retrograde let you move into action and do something with what you noticed, and integration serves as a review to finish up anything you may have missed.

This was the time to make a commitment to yourself. Someone or something from the past may have come up over and over again, needing to be addressed and taken care of, with the opportunity to change your style of communication and stepping into your Truth to speak.

You can drag your heels, and not do the things you noticed, but it will still be there to be worked on even though you didn’t address it. Whatever the issue, there will be another time and you will have an opportunity to work on what you didn’t work on during this retrograde.

It is not as if you escaped it. You may get your learning in another way even though you didn’t bring these issues to a head for yourself during this time. There is always more time to learn.

Things may have been shown to you, becoming clearer each time you tried to communicate with someone and it didn’t go very well. There will be another opportunity to use your new found Self, your truth and voice and the responsibility to take care of yourSelf first.

Now, about the full Moon. The full moon is supportive and loving and helpful, and has to do with our consciousness. It is magnetic and female. Unlike the last few weeks, which was more electric energy downloaded and configured into the planet, through the sun which is male, electric and linear.

This full moon is about personal freedom. Imagine teaming up and integrating your ability to communicate your truth and your personal freedom (less self-criticism). You may have been frightened or not sure how to communicate your truth, and this retrograde was helping you to learn and process just that. This theme of personal freedom with this full moon really started in December of last year on many levels, we’ve really had a half year to process how we could get to our personal freedom.

If you’ve been acting in your personal freedom, it could mean loving yourself and not having to earn the love, or comparing yourself to others, or leaving a relationship without guilt, ending a friendship, leaving a job, or changing the way you eat. It can come in a variety of packages to present to you what you would want to use or work on for your own personal freedom.

To get the most out of the energy of this full moon, just simply connect with the full moon. Go outside and stand outdoors. It doesn’t matter if you can see the light, you can still connect with the moon’s energy. If you can see it and you can sit, you can connect by meditating. Get into your vertical tube, get into your first chakra, connect to mother earth, go into each chakra and then into your crown. Let yourself connect through your crown. Go all the way up as if you’re in an elevator and connect to the moon.

When you feel yourself connect to the fluid light energy, you’ll know you are connected to that consciousness. Let the energy move through you and cleanse any old binds and ties to your past as far back as you know where you’ve been inhibited with your own personal freedom. Write down or record your experience so you can go over it. Use these findings through the end of the retrograde integration phase June 27th.

This is a great day for owning your power, building your Self worth, and feeling really confident. Don’t make any excuses for who you are. Don’t get overtaken by the guilt or confusion of who you think you should be or where you think you should be at this point in your life.

The energy of the moon is fluid love that goes through your body. Connect with your own fluids, including your blood and water to connect with the moon. Upgrading our way of communicating our personal truth, along with the full moon’s theme of personal freedom are the finishing touches for this Mercury retrograde.

Love and trust, Rita

Mercury Retrograde – Rewind and Reset

May 2015 retrograde is here again.  This will be our second one for 2015.  We’re in the Pre-Shadow period right now, which started May 4, and will last until the 18/19th. Then, Mercury Retrograde goes full on the 18/19th of May.  This lasts for three full weeks. Then into a post-shadow integration period for all that you will have learned and have become aware of about yourself.  This integration period will be from  June 11 until June 27.

Just a reminder of what a planetary Retrograde means and what it assists us all in doing at this time.  We all get to go over past/old ground and look at situations and behaviors that are in need of attention. It is like a reset or rewind button for us.  You, and all of us, get to go over parts of our life where you may have missed your learning.

You now have an opportunity to actually “do over,” what you may have left out in many situations and with present awareness, try it again. The pre-shadow period is extremely beneficial; it is the prepratory work for the three weeks prior to when the real work begins. The pre-shadow period is for you to become aware of themes in your life.

Group or individual opportunities can appear where you missed taking care of situations in the past, like personal relationships, business or otherwise. Take note of who might pop up in your life when you least expect them or if someone pops up from the past.

Who are you thinking of constantly and why?  And what significant dealings are coming up each day: money, health, confrontation, family, being uncomfortable about your obligations, to name a few examples.  Write these down, and when you enter into the full Retrograde look over your notes and see/feel what you want to work on.

When this Retrograde does move into full swing, it will be about how you use your decision/choosing for your own personal growth.  You will focus more on what your own feelings are about choosing than what you think you are SUPPOSED to be doing in life.  This is a healing time to focus in pre-shadow and the full Retrograde on your own clarity.

This clarity is what gives you more authenticity and your Truth.  Clarity and Truth will give you authenticity.  You can choose from your Heart or Soul alignment rather than your linear, reasoning, logical self.  Your intuitive action will be your own personal growth.  These are steps that move you up the ladder of Self- awareness and realization that you have your own Free-Will-Power, your own free choice.

Listen to your heart, feel your intuition, pay attention to what you are feeling that leads you to certain growth at this time.  Retrogrades are very powerful and healing.  You don’t have to see this as a challenge or confrontation of your ego (but know your ego will kick and scream), but a time of review to heal that which you missed in the past.

You may start having some physical reactions, even now in the pre-shadow time; Headaches, feeling tired, sleepy, achy, or no appetite or very hungry.  Honor these physical signals and do the best you can to accommodate yourself.

DRINK more water, if you stay hydrated you are helping your mind, body, spirit in a way that you might not think you really need.  Water, like breath, is a combination package that our body desires.  Pay attention to these simple acts of support for your spirit and biological body.

I’ll send more information as we get closer to the Retrograde.  Stay awake and pay attention to the prerequisites to the real deal.

Keep growing, Rita

Taking Action

actionTake Action! You know, that can mean so many things, taking action.  Just getting up in the morning is taking action.  I mean,  you could actually just stay in bed and not do the things you said you’d do.

And you could just stay stuck in what ever emotional pain you are in and choose a distraction for the moment to keep your mind off the pain.  That actually is taking action, isn’t it?

When you pick a topic about your self then set a day or week that you are going to put a plan in place to do something about it, that is taking action. Then the day comes, and you have some pretty big expectations about yourself as to how you are going to dive into this topic of yours about yourself. You might even think that you are so ready you will be able to carry this out forever.

Then the challenge starts.  You find how much effort it really takes to want to change this situation you are in that is not making you feel very good.  This challenge you started needs some big energy to sustain your intentions, right?

So now you put more plans into place and more action that you need to take to make this really feel like you’re going to get somewhere with this idea.

You could feel like you’re spinning your wheels now because you are gathering input from others, collecting more information about your situation, and it might seem that the more action steps you take, the further you get from feeling like your efforts are moving you into any relief.

Action + effort = acknowledgement

Here are some helpful tools to keep you focused on your outcome:

1) Be patient.  Be observant of yourself.  If you plan one thing for the day, then you will be able to take notice of it. If what you plan to change happens, you have to be present to notice it.

2. Choose to be present so you can resonate with the sign that is delivered.  You set up an action to take, now you best give yourself the space to notice it when it happens, acknowledge it.  It doesn’t have to be monumental, huge, or run you over.  This sign that you have delivered to yourself can be subtle and small, but you have to be present to put it all together.

3. Ask what the learning is.  If you are present with yourself, you can stop and experience the learning and you can be aware of the outcome for your actions that you planned to do differently.

4. Next and most importantly, be grateful.  Now that you have the sign delivered you can be so grateful for the insight and go use it.  Write it down.  Keep a log of signs, messages and aha moments so you can weave them together to show you the big picture.  This is where your learning will most likely reveal to you what and how to continue your desire to change.

Let the Essence of your action become you.   Don’t become the action.

What this New Moon, February 18th means for you…

New Moon. What does this mean for you,  and really that is all that anything is about.  What does it mean for you, how does this pertain to your day to day living?  What do you do with the information?

Let’s go into this enough so that you can find it applicable, interesting and doable.

This New Moon today around 3:47 PST is really going to energetically push everyone on the planet into more awareness about endings and new beginnings.

Also, entire Karmic patterns that you may not be aware of will be pushed to the surface for you to become very aware of how you are now going to handle old patterns.  Considering all the new energy on the planet having to keep dealing with old emotional, physical, and mental patterns may feel overwhelming.

But this New Moon is bringing everyone the possibility to use that part of your self that doesn’t know what to do with the unknown.  That part of you where you just simply have to use trust to let yourself become more aware of what is and isn’t working in your life.

This new energy is going to help/assist you if you let your self seek out the parts of you that you have ignored or didn’t want to take conscious responsibility for up to this point.

Nothing is going to go away on its own.  You and you alone can stand in your own light now and make a personal commitment to yourself that you are curious to know the hidden parts of yourself that keeps you back.

You may be noticing that two things are happening at the same time.  You may be feeling a “gap.” This gap is more like two worlds are at work now.  Then you might feel which one do you live in or how do you live in one and let go of the other?

This is how you know how far you have developed your Self-Responsibility for healing you and then, in turn, this is  your contribution to all of the collective consciousness that will be affected.  When you do work on your Self you do work for the greater group and the actual planet.

This New Moon is ushering in support for you to go into your own Unconscious part of you whether you like it or not.  You live in duality inside yourself and this is the time to do some conscious work in the parts of you that you don’t like, that means the physical and emotional pain.

Go into these feelings and simply allow your Self to be the conscious voice. Let this loving part of you step up to the podium and guide you when your wounded self becomes more intolerant of your life not being better than it is at this moment.

I’m talking about the everyday events that you can be aware of: relationships, health, money, friends, community, career, thin enough, smart enough, good looking enough, are just a few ways to get in touch with your life.

You alone will be your own witness if you are having problems in any of these areas based on whether you are unhappy in any of these areas and staying in them because of an old belief?  If you are, how do you desire your Self to find another way to do it differently,  and if you can’t change something right at this time, then how can you be more compassionate with your Self while you move through this challenge.

This leap of faith is your own power to birth something you haven’t thought you could do before or have put on hold.  You can go in a new direction in your life, create a new business, bring the artist out that you have been longing to show,  just start  no matter what road you take to do something new and different for your self/ Self.  JUMP!
