Humanity is on the Line!

March 2, 2021

“But man is a part of nature, and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself.”

Rachel Carson


The earth has a way of restoring itself and bringing about balance naturally if we do not interfere with the inherent nature of her design. I believe this is also true when it comes to our bodies immune system. Unfortunately, man and his ego have separated from spirit and have created an unbalance that needs to be restored to achieve harmony with the world, each other, and ourselves. We must look within rather than outside of ourselves for the answers to all life’s questions. All true power comes from our souls, and this power has been lying dormant within us ready to be awakened whenever we are ready to listen. Our intuition speaks to us in quite whispers, always guiding us in the direction of our spirits. All health and wellbeing comes from a wholesome balanced life. How we create this balance in a world that seems to be spinning faster and faster out of control is a personal journey we need to take. It seems the mass consciousness has lost their way. 
Right now, we are at a major crossroads of humanity. We are about to change our genome that makes us human. We are making some major global health decisions that will forever change our relation to the virome. The virome is literally the language of life on earth. We would have never adapted to any life without it.
There are only a few times in history that a cataclysmic event radically changed the paradigm on earth. Around 2,000 thousand years ago, Pythagoras discovered that the earth was not flat but a sphere. It revolutionized the way we live. Around 1,200 years later the telescope showed us that we are not the center of the universe which again disrupted the dogma of the day. The consciousness of the masses did not want to believe this, and it took years before it was accepted as truth. Now we are on the cutting edge of another paradigm shift that is so radical and changing the core of who we thought we were. We had thought that the human cell was the determining factor of what makes us human. We have discovered that it is the virome that makes up human life.
We are at war against one virus, as we breath in more viruses every second than there are stars in the galaxy. Our innate immune system is designed to adapt to them and naturally upgrade our bodies to stay healthy. We live in a sea of microbiome. They live in us, on us and are all around us. Viruses are the very essence of life on this planet. Without them we die. Yet, the narrative is that we are at war with this one virus that we need to eradicate, destroy, and kill. Don’t shot the messenger. The virus is here to update our biology. Health can only be achieved and preserved by an appropriate way of life. This is not a war that needs to be won. This is not the only story.
We are made up of more bacteria, fungi, and viruses than anything else. This is so disruptive, that most are not willing to let go of the old model to embrace this new science. Humanity is in its 11 hour. We are just a pixel in the fabric of the biology on earth. We must learn to live symbiotically with nature, or we will self-destruct. We are a part of nature and not separate. We need the diversification to sustain the balance of the ecosystem.
This virus is not the enemy. Until we stop destroying the viruses, fungi, parasites, bacteria and other organisms, life on earth will become inhabitable. Opening our minds to understanding our relationship with them will update humanity to a healthier and sustainable earth. Which do you choose?

The Wisdom of Women

February 3, 2021

“The connection between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic, and the most potentially transforming force on the planet.”

Adrienne Rich

It is common knowledge in most indigenous cultures that the fully realized woman is the unshakable foundation upon which civilization must be built. The grandmothers are the ultimate power brokers in tribal society because they alone know what it means to bring life into the world- the ultimate test of spiritual and physical fortitude.

In modern culture we must find our way back and honor these customs and traditions to survive and thrive in the new world.
Women, we are becoming more spirited, more powerful, and more awakened. We are evolving, changing, transforming, and disrupting the models that have suppressed, oppressed, and depressed us from becoming all we can be.  Feminine energy can be very much misunderstood. For years, women have been portrayed as being jealous of other women sabotaging one another.  These ailing systems are beginning to reveal what we can accomplish when we work and play together.

The traditional face of a woman was conformity. We needed to seek approval, acceptance, and security. “I am who you say I am.” Some women grew up believing this was true. In some cultures, this is the norm. They still live in the shackles of their oppressors. When we educate and give young girls and women a sense of purpose, they then have an opportunity to find their voice and say, “I’m not who you say I am.” We begin to push back, gain some freedom and independence. Creativity emerges, truth, self-esteem and self-expression show its face. However, this is still insecurity. Although we are gaining confidence to find our voice and speak up, there is an energy of resentment and struggle. We can get caught in a vicious cycle of being right, competition to get ahead and burn ourselves out. We want to play in a man’s world being a woman. It does not work. We wind up burning out, trying to do it all. When we truly become empowered women, we access the energy to be who “I say I AM”. This is the Goddess energy. The divine feminine energy. This is when we can lift each other up. Madeline Albright always says, “There is a special place in hell for women who do not help each other.” But the reverse is true and more uplifting: there is a special place in heaven for women who shine the light and share it with others. Image how bright the future could be when we shine the light for each other. It will be heaven on earth!


Keep it Simple

January 19, 2021

Lately, I’ve been in a contemplative state of mind. I am lost for Words to express what I feel about the state of my country and the world. So, I’m giving myself the time and space to reflect. I have been in an observational and reflective mind-set. I am taking extra good care of my emotional, physical, mental and spiritual self.When I came across these words, they resonated with how I want to live my life. So very simple, yet so profound. I hope you too can find comfort in them.

Charlie Chaplin lived 88 years
He left us 4 statements:

(1) Nothing is forever in this world, not even our problems.

(2) I love walking in the rain because no one can see my tears.

(3) The most lost day in life is the day we don’t laugh.

(4) Six best doctors in the world:

1. The sun

2. Rest

3. Exercise

4. Diet

5. Self-respect

6. Friends

Stick to them at all stages of your life and enjoy a healthy life. If you see the moon, you will see the beauty of God. If you see the sun, you will see the power of God. If you see a mirror, you will see God’s best creation. So believe it. We are all tourists, God is our travel agent who has already identified our routes, bookings and destinations… trust Him and enjoy life. Life is just a journey…Therefore, live today! Tomorrow may never be. 

With Much Love & Gratitude,

Monica


The Great Awakening

December 31, 2020

We all have gone through some major changes since the beginning of 2020. So many adjustments, changes, revaluations, and patience were required to navigate through these uncertain times. As you reflect, what have you discovered about yourself that you weren’t aware of before? Did you take the time to learn any thing new? If not, now is the perfect time to go on a deep dive to applying, understanding and studying the principles of life that will surely wake you, shake you and take you on the ride of your life for 2021!

There is something mysterious and magical that happens when you finally are ready to free your mind, heart, and spirit. When you say YES to you and begin believing in yourself.

Here are seven questions to ask yourself this New Year, that I received from one of my mentors.

1-What do you hope for this coming year that is different from other years?

2-How do you want to improve your life this year?

3-What do you want to contribute to your community to make it a better place?

4-How do you want to be different by the end of the year?

5-Whose life do you want to improve and how will you do that?

6-What changes are unfolding in your life that you need to cooperate with and what does that mean?

7-In what ways or ways do you want to deepen your spiritual life?

Take some time to contemplate your answers and hold them near and dear to your heart to raise your vibration.

And most of all, remember to play, dance and sing every day!

Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year!


Look Up Into the Sky

December 21, 2020

Season’s Greetings,

Before we usher in a New Year, there are some mystical and magical events occurring on our planet. The winter solstice in the northern hemisphere which is on December 21, 2020 will bring two planets so close that they look like one. This has not happened for over 800 years. Of all the years this can occur it is happening now! Coincidence or synchronized cosmic order? The sky is asking us to look up into the heavens and evoke the light that this being offered as a gift.

Here is something I wrote a few years back which has more meaning to me now as I embrace the changes that are happening in the world. You might find it a bit woo-woo, but I Am woo-woo.

As my physical body moves with the energy of the lunar body, I feel closer to the sun than ever before.

This day in time and space is reflecting to me where I have journeyed and how I can manifest my future to align with my highest intentions.

As another earth year has travelled around the infinite vastness of our universe, enlightened souls are on the front line riding the wave of expansion. We are here to awaken the ones who are still fast asleep to their true essence.

The winter solstice is a time of high vibration. It is an opening to the portal of source energy.  It is a spiral stairway of evolution birthing a new divine destiny.

This vortex is open for anyone who chooses to connect with pure consciousness. Once inside this field you become one with all that is and all that ever was. You release the past to create a new you and a new earth. One of love, peace, and joy.

Now is the time to manifest a miracle on our earth. Light workers around the planet are collectively uniting with the beings of ascended source energy to co-create a glorious and magnificent new earth.

Humanity is experiencing a renaissance of divine love.   Breath in this truth and feel the presence of these beautiful patterns of love emerging within your soul.

The sacred feminine energy is guiding all of us to open our hearts to inspire higher.

As I shift my consciousness and align with source energy tonight, I ask all the entities of my highest self to assist me to fulfill my sacred contract that I agreed to before I choose to have this human experience.

A blessed and joyful Holiday to all.


You’ve Got to Feel to Heal

December 2, 2020

All great changes are proceeded by chaos.

Deepak Chopra

There is no denying that the world is in crisis. I feel that everyone is feeling the effects that have shifted how we are living our lives.

What are you yearning for? What is it that you feel is missing? What do you believe has been taken away from your life? How can we change? How has our social systems kept us from reaching our full potential? The paradigms that have been controlling every aspect of how we live our lives are crumbling before our eyes. We are being stripped down to the very core of our being, to reexamine what we truly value. It is like being an addict hitting rock bottom. I believe collectively that is what we are going through. Until we face and feel our pain, hurt, fears, insecurities, guilt, and shame, we will continue to suffer and create the delusion of stability. What might you be addicted to? A position, power, fam, money, food, material objects, sex, drugs, alcohol, work, a relationship, your phone, TV, gambling, shopping, stinken thinking or what is referred to as the ism’s. How can we give the world our best when we have become numb to ourselves? In the book The Paradigm Conspiracy the authors write “ The call to name addiction as addictions, pain as pain, system craziness as system craziness, and the control paradigm as soul-violating is according to wisdom teachings, the wake-up call from our souls.”

The First Step is admitting we are in pain.

The Second Step is waking up to your souls calling and

The Third Step is reclaiming your innate creative powers.

Through this process we withdraw our commitment to a paradigm that is not working and start evolving a new one. The word conspire comes from conspirare, which means to “breath together”.  A cultural paradigm begins with each person stepping out of the old and breathing something new.

You are more than just your physical body. You are a part of the collective whole. To paraphrase Claude Levi-Strauss, we are the universe coming together in a unique way so that transforming experiences can happen. If we don’t live our souls, what could have happened doesn’t.

A poem from Rumi:

This is how a human being can change:

There’s a worm addicted to eating grape leaves.

Suddenly, he wakes up,

Call it Grace, whatever, something wakes him, and he’s no longer a worm

He’s the entire vineyard,

And the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks, a growing wisdom and joy,

That doesn’t need to devour.”


Aspire Higher

November 3, 2020

Aspire to be a giver. To give more love. Give hope. Give strength. Give positivity.

I am a first generation American. Both my parents were Holocaust survivors. They came to this country with little money, very few possessions and no family, but with many aspirations. They did not speak the language, they had no work or resources, however they had hopes for a better life.

This is my moms’ hand. She will 91 in a few days. This is the hand of a woman who was in forced labor as a child, who saw bombs dropping from the sky every day for years. Who didn’t know if she would ever see her family again or find shelter, warmth from the cold winters, have food on her plate or have the luxuries that we so easily take for granted.

My father had to witness seeing his father off on a cattle car, never to be seen or heard of ever again. Fortunately, he was able to get off to London England on the Kinder Transport. He was put into a labor camp to work as a young boy. He was alone without any whereabouts of his mother and had no siblings. It was dark times. They both saw horrible things that were etched into their psyche. Despite all the evil they endured, they had hope, aspirations, strength, and love in their hearts. This is what humanity is about.

We are here to create, to get inspired, to expand our consciousness, to be in awe of the wonders of nature and seek ways to cooperate with one another. We are all connected. The more we truly grasp this realization the more we can start to open our hearts so we can play and work together. WE are living in the greatest evolution in human history. We are witnessing the birth of a new world. As with any birthing process comes labor pains. If we want our freedom, there is a price to pay. Just like a seedling breaking through the top layer of the hard soil, you too must find your inner strength to reach higher, to aspire to seek the light!

What do you want to create? What are your aspirations? What is your vision for a better tomorrow?  There is a new world and a new humanity struggling to be born. We are Awakening to ourselves.

Enjoy this beautiful version of Hallelujah!


Come Over to the Wild Side

October 15, 2020

“Hard Times Requires Furious Dancing”

Alice Walker

Some people have decided to buckle up for safety because life has become bumpy. The ride has been quite wild the last eight or more months. So much uncertainty. So much unpredictability. I can certainly understand people wanting to hold tight, protect and keep safe from a world that seems to be so out of control. That is not what my gut is telling me. My intuition is calling me to let lose and let my wild side out. To dance furiously and unleash my passion. Sometimes I want to scream out loud, to laugh wildly, to love passionately and play childishly.

My body longs for movement. My soul cries out for freedom. My spirit is searching for peace. All around me I see people wanting to hold on to security. To look for the familiar. But we must dance furiously until we create a new pattern. A new dance. Let go……..

Allow yourself to embrace the uncertainty with faith and courage. Take a trip of your mind and explore all the places that have kept you imprisoned in your own beliefs. The secret things that you keep tucked away. Even you think you can fool yourself. Loss yourself to yourself. That is where you will find yourself. The hippies of yesterday had it right. Make love not war. My hippy heart wants to move forward with creating and exploring new possibilities with the wisdom of the ancient ancestors of the past. Let’s dance wildly and furiously. Let’s get into a frenzy to rearrange, derange, and interchange the addictive patterns that have our culture crippled and trapped in conformity. The way out is the way in.


Get Ready to Rumble

October 6, 2020

It’s time for us to join the line of the madmen, all chained together.

Time to be totally free and estranged….

To set fire to structures and run out in the street.

Time to ferment. How else can we leave the world-vat and go to the lip?

We must die to become true human beings.

Rumi

America has lost another great icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg aka the notorious RBG!

Ruth Bader Ginsburg devoted her life to justice, values, ethics, morality, truth, and honor. She fought tirelessly for positive change and to create a system that is fair for all people. She chose her words wisely, knowing that what you say, how you say it, and when you say it can shift the outcome of a debate. RBG was a small woman that played in a big man’s world and conquered it. She was fearless. She was determined. She was courageous. She was compassionate and intelligent. How she governed her life and her work gave young girls and women a roadmap to follow. Her legacy will live on as an example of what anyone could accomplish if they led with their heart and use their minds for the ultimate good.

Our world is changing ever so rapidly and what is needed more than ever is the understanding that we are all connected. Whether you are running a corporation, a business, or a household, without treating each other with respect and valuing others, growth and success will never long endure. Money has two (2) purposes, to make you more comfortable and to serve others. If there is any other motive for its attainment, such as power or fame, then corruption will slowly infiltrate the mind and eventually destroy morals and values.

The world is waking up to a new paradigm. Women and men who stand up for each other, who are willing to fight for justice and equal rights for all. RBG was such a woman. She never raised her voice. She spoke with a steady, composed, and calm voice to make herself be heard. She was a force to be reckoned with. No wealth or position will long endure without truth and justice. Wisdom comes with experience. Experience comes from applied knowledge, and applied knowledge comes from study. From the words of the notorious RBG, “Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” RIP


The Seventh Generation

September 15, 2020

 

Iroquois Confederacy Constitution – The Tree of Peace The Seventh Generation takes its name from the Great Law of the Haudenosaunee, the founding document of the Iroquois Confederacy, the oldest living participatory democracy on Earth. It is based on an ancient Iroquois philosophy that:

“In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”

The Constitution of the Iroquois Nation (The Great Binding Law) explains “seventh generation” philosophy as follows: “The thickness of your skin shall be seven spans — which is to say that you shall be proof against anger, offensive actions and criticism. Your heart shall be filled with peace and good will and your mind filled with a yearning for the welfare of the people of the Confederacy. With endless patience you shall carry out your duty and your firmness shall be tempered with tenderness for your people. Neither anger nor fury shall find lodgement in your mind and all your words and actions shall be marked with calm deliberation. In all of your deliberations in the Confederate Council, in your efforts at law making, in all your official acts, self interest shall be cast into oblivion. Cast not over your shoulder behind you the warnings of the nephews and nieces should they chide you for any error or wrong you may do, but return to the way of the Great Law which is just and right. Look and listen for the welfare of the whole people and have always in view not only the present but also the coming generations, even those whose faces are yet beneath the surface of the ground — the unborn of the future Nation.” 

This philosophy is not unique to just the Iroquois nation. Many Native American nations, tribes and other indigenous people around the world have and still live by this philosophy

Today, The Seventh Generation Principle usually applies to decisions about the energy we use, water and natural resources, and ensuring those decisions are sustainable for seven generations in the future.

We should apply the Seventh Generation Principle to relationships – so that every decision we make results in sustainable relationships that last at least seven generations into the future.

In particular relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples should be forged with the Seventh Generation Principle in mind, so that future relationships will be positive for many generations to come.

 

The Great Peacemaker used a white pine, called the Tree of Peace, to symbolize the peace established by the Iroquoian Confederacy. The branches of the Tree of Peace represented protection. A far seeing eagle sat upon the top of the tree to symbolize a warning system if the tribes were in danger. Beneath the roots of the Tree of Peace a weapon was buried which symbolized that there would be no fighting between the Iroquois tribes.
