As we move toward the end of the current Mercury Retrograde, the last for 2019, it may be helpful to turn your attention to the multi-faceted purpose and wisdom of your throat chakra, the center for speaking and hearing truth.

The following is an excerpt from the throat chakra chapter of my book Chakras Alive! Exploring & Expanding Your Inner Rainbow.

Throat Chakra Speaks

I am a portal of giving and receiving, a place where you imbibe and expel air, food, information, and concepts; a gateway for listening and self-expression; a triad for expression—you utilize what is available to you on many levels, re-create and/or translate it, and send it forth into the Universe through your self-expression. This is under-utilized by many who believe they must parrot what is given them, rather than perform this series of activities.

I am helpful in sorting out which elements you wish to create with and which hold no value for you other than as contrast to what you do value.

You express on many levels all of the time, and I am the place where you refine what you choose to express deliberately.

I am also the portal for truly hearing what is happening around you, what is being expressed by others, throughout and beyond all dimensions.

I assist you to ask questions, make yourself heard, to perform acts of creativity and self-expression, from the most seemingly mundane to the most seemingly grandiose.

I am willing to work with you on any type of project or activity. None is better or less than any other through my lens. It is simply a matter of how fully you choose to allow yourself to express.

I am invaluable to every area and aspect of your life—every form of relationship, activity, decision-making, and belief.

I value your nature as a portal for extraordinary alchemy, and I support a crucial aspect of this—that of listening, i.e., intake of energies, information, nutrients, ideas, ingredients for re-creation; the process of such re-creating for self-expression; and the sharing, the exhale, the outer expression of this thought, feeling, idea, belief, plan, poem, music, art, recipe, revelation.

I support your ongoing expansion through these three interdependent processes, and hence the expansion of your Universe. This is where Creator and Creation are One; where you are truly present as a microcosm of the ultimate macrocosm, the “as above, so below” in action. It is a mighty realm of beingness, and I thank you for the magnificent opportunity it offers me and all!!!!

Goddess Wisdom for November, 2019

Goddess Art, Goddess Wisdom, Goddess Meditation, U.P. metaphysical, U.P. holistic practitioner, U.P. reader, visionary artBuoyancy ~ Freedom ~ Clarity ~ Expansiveness ~ Sweetness of Life

I won’t lie to you, this has not been the predominant note of my start to November. While I am committed to my current projects and choices, things have been bumpy, and at times quite frustrating of late, (I’d like to say Mercury Retrograde doesn’t impact me, but publishing a magazine, Health & Happiness, makes its effect abundantly clear to me), though interspersed with the shine of my spiritual practices and supportive, fun friendship. So I am thrilled to dive into the energy that Flower Deva shares with us.

If you’d like to do so also, here’s some additional support.

Meditation from Flower Deva

Breathe

into the sky.

Breathe

out to the sky.

Breathe

in more blue sky,

curling shoulders forward

‘round sky

curling

Shoulders ‘round back

toward sky.

 

Feel the sky in your lungs.

Feel the sky in your heart.

Feel the sky moving ‘round the world.

Through your breathe you’re doing your part

to weave yourself into its story.

to weave yourself into the world,

to carry its riches into your self,

to bring your riches into its furls.

 

So feel the sky in your belly.

Feel the sky in your throat.

Let its lightness lift you up

to concentrate on its coat

of living breathing color

of live breathing light,

of space so clear that far seems near,

and you can levitate into flight.

 

So breathe into your eyes now.

breathe into your womb.

Let thoughts delight

and dreams take flight

with elemental zoom.

 

Breathe into your ears.

Breathe into your toes.

Let chants of breeze

your heart do seize

to sweep aside all woes.

 

Breathe into your tail bone.

Breathe into your crown

‘til all’s aligned with Heaven’s time

and harmony abounds.

 

Breathe into all doorways

offered by your skin.

Carry their mark into all your parts

and revel in the space therein.

 

Breathe into your bounty.

Breathe into your love.

Breathe into the nectar

that’s created from above.

 

Breathe it into daytime.

Breathe it into night.

Breathe it into thoughts that sing

of joyous home delight.

 

Your wings stretch out forever.

Your wings are made of light

and thoughts that sing ‘til flowers ring

with your freedom gratitude flight.

Soul Work

Heaven on Earth, soul integration, Soul Body Fusion® practitioner, metaphysical Marquette MI, U.P. healer, U.P. holistic practitioner

Living heaven on earth requires bringing more of the heavenly aspect of ourselves here. So soul integration is required.

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to learn various ways to accelerate this. The most basic element, intention, cannot be ignored. Simple yet with the power to move what  may seem like mountains of obstacles. Intention aims you toward your chosen destiny, and keeps you going through any detours or challenges. The method(s) provides the vehicle for moving forward.

One of my favorite soul-integration vehicles is Soul Body Fusion®, brought through by spiritual teacher and channel Jonette Crowley. It invites and supports your soul to take charge of this integration process in whatever way best suits you. Shortly after learning how to facilitate this in 2009, I was blessed to be one of the first group trained to teach this to others, and lately I’ve been sharing SBF nearly every day.

Because the soul is in charge, you cannot predict the fusion’s specific positive outcomes, however, in some cases the results have been quite dramatic and potentially life-saving.  One similarity I’ve noted among those I’ve worked with is finding old issues or triggers no longer affect them, that things feel smoother, and they feel like a long-lost part of themselves has returned.

I know for myself that I feel more aligned and expansive, feel a fuller sense of “me” in my energy field, more hopeful and confident. The more we radiate our actual selves, the more easily we connect with what truly suits us, and currently, I feel the next level of expansion in my external reality preparing to launch.

I’ve also been exploring how Soul Body Fusion® relates to other soul-integration modalities I’ve learned, and different ways of integrating these methods so I can share the best of my discoveries.

Because the soul and body belong together (that’s what birth is, just as death is their separation), Soul Body Fusion® and my related work can be shared with anyone at any time – no permission, scheduling, or being in the same physical space required. This has allowed me to support those going through trauma freely, knowing I’m not interfering because I’m acting as a neutral initiator of a process his or her soul is facilitating. And to amp up my own soul integration, as I naturally benefit simultaneously through resonance.

With All Soul’s Day initiating the start of November, I am making soul integration the focus of my first Wed. of the month healing circle. If you’d like to join us in person or remotely, be sure to contact me ASAP, and/or feel free to schedule your own private session. I also hope to teach Soul Body Fusion® next year, and will keep you posted.

Namaste & all the blessings of your soul-filled life to you,

Roslyn Elena McGrath

 

 

Following the Shifts

energy field healing and readings in MI's Upper Peninsula

The Honey House at Algomah Acres, Greenland, MI

Yesterday was the fifth consecutive Wellness & Spirituality Fair at “The Honey House,” a beautifully re-purposed Catholic Church that is part of the Algomah Acres Meadery in rural Greenland, MI. The vibe there is always uplifting, and most who attend are hungry for all the spiritual and wellness goodies. 

When I arrived to set up the day before, the coordinator who usually has the place open by then had not arrived, due to her own turnaround of events. A fellow vendor who had unknowingly arrived an hour earlier than the scheduled opening, was waiting patiently.

It was a beautiful day, and I was needing both outdoors time and some gentle exercise to support the healing of an injury. The road was perfectly flat with room to walk on the grass alongside it – exactly what I needed- and the companionship of my fellow vendor, someone I’d been at many fairs at over the years but had only brief conversations with, gave me the opportunity to get to know him better.

Said coordinator called me as soon as I let the situation be known in our group PM thread and gave us a way to get in, plus our booth spots. I was able to set up at my favorite location-alongside an old piano and a brilliant stained glass window of Christ, in time to head to my night’s stay on schedule.

Usually, a friend and I traveled together to this fair and shared a motel room nearby, but she’d had an unexpected change of plan. This disappointment led me to reach out to another fellow vendor, a sweet soul sister I’ve only had bits of time with here and there, who lived relatively close (only 50 minutes away compared to my two hours). I arrived to a warm, welcoming space and company, enjoyed dinner together, and got to hear a favorite musician at a great venue I’d never been to before. (If you get the opportunity, I highly recommend The Orpheum, a former movie theatre in Hancock, MI. It’s an intimate but not tight venue with great acoustics, choice of balcony, table sitting, or dancing space, with beer and delicious-smelling pizza available.) 

The musician is the son of a friend who passed too early for many of us, a dear man who was part of the Course In Miracles group I attended over 20 years ago. I felt his presence there quite strongly, and had a bit of dialogue with him. It was quite emotional for me. His son referred to his dad several times throughout the show, and I learned some new things about my friend from this.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show, and briefly was able to tell this talent performer so, as well as mention how I saw his dad smiling and saying proudly, “That’s my son!” Having given no preamble to this, or introduction of myself, I don’t think the recipient was quite prepared for the message, but it just tumbled out of me in that brief moment, so hopefully it was absorbed later in the way it was meant to.

Though I got to sleep somewhat later that night than I’d hoped, I dozed deeply and well. Thankfully, because I was blessed to provide readings for each in a family of five-a glowing mom and her five precious daughters, right off the bat, and shared readings and energy work nearly continuously the rest of the day, yet at a perfect pace, with many meaningful encounters to treasure in the company of dear fellow healers and vendors, all doing their thing. My soul was nourished in every way.

And I was even able to neatly hand-alter the dates listed for my monthly in-person and remote energy healing circles on the pretty pieces of paper sharing my upcoming events that I’d so carefully created. A monthly Great Mother channeling I’m committed to attending remotely had changed its regular date to the one I’d chosen for my circle, so “Enfolding Light” will now be held the FIRST Wed. of the month rather than the second.

May we all ride the waves to receive the unexpected gifts of this Mercury Retrograde!

 

 

 

Are We Really Meant to Have Heaven on Earth?

spiritual teachings, heaven and earth, channeling of Mary Magdalene,

Q. If Earth is different from what we conceive of as “Heaven”—our spirit leaves our body, we go to this place, well, most of us I guess—where it’s loving and we feel peace and we feel, Earth is for physical manifestation, of all that is. It seems, a lot of people think that there are two different things. “Well, why should you have Heaven where Earth is, when Earth is supposed to be different form.” There’s that “supposed to be” again. But do you know what I’m talking about? Why bring Heaven to Earth when we can just go to Heaven and have Heaven in Heaven?

A. Because it will not be identical to Heaven, because you will still have a physical experience, although it will be relatively ethereal to how you experienced Earth previously. So it is like, it is an integration of expansion. It expands Heaven, because Heaven shall operate more fully here, without the illusion of the separation between. And it is expansion for Earth, because Earth can embrace the fullness of the multiplicity of the less tangible, some would say, but more subtle, some would say, fewer and fewer, as we move into this evolution. That it (Earth) can kind of be known for what it truly is—a paradise in which what is defined as the physical senses can be included, can operate, that you can know yourself, still, as individuated, as you also know yourselves as One.

Have you had this experience, where there is this kind of knowing in how a group functions together? It could be as simple as bringing out trays of coffee, or repairing something, or painting a room, or moving furniture. You know what this is like. The one through whom we speak has referred to it in her earlier days as “the pod” feeling, being part of the pod. This will be more common, more available, more known, more expected, even anticipated, more fully appreciated, and more widespread. It will be, eventually, become the dominant sort of experience in that, again, you know you are separate, and you are having that kind of just “clicking in” experience of functioning as one, or knowing that even though you cannot see it, that you are functioning as one.

Creative Wisdom Card for October 2019

Creative Wisdom Card, guidance card, visionary art

Within each of us lie the answers we seek.

I invite you to take some time to contemplate the image here.

What stands out to you about it?

What else do you notice?

Continue to look at it. What else do you notice?

What relevance might what you’ve noticed have to your current life situation?

How else might it relate?

Are there other ways it might also be relevant for you?

Here are additional ideas that may be of value for you to reflect on also.

QUESTIONS TO EXPLORE

Have you observed the workings of nature, their perfect unfoldment of balance and growth?

Are you aware of such patterns at work in your own life?  Have you recognized the perfection with which the Universe mirrors back to you your own perceptions of Life?

THE IMAGE SPEAKS

I am one with my surroundings,

a witness to their beauty, reflecting my own. 

I penetrate understandings with the simplicity of my love as it ripples and flows through the world around me.  My gaze clarifies the gifts that await myself and all others.

SUGGESTIONS FOR GROWTH

All intricacies arise from core truth.  Allow yourself

to recognize emerging patterns of loss and discovery as part of the Love which unites all Creation.

From this vantage point you may absorb the Higher Truth behind the changing façade of temporal life.

As you move through your month, what does your heart tell you about this peak transitional time?

Though you and we collectively may be moving through challenging times (see my previous post on Persephone), we can “take heart,” to help us move through them more Grace-fully and effectively.

Through the heart, we can connect with all parts of ourselves, as well as with one another and the Universe. It knows more than our minds, and is more than our blood regulator and emotional reservoir. It lives Truth. 

When we tap into the heart, we find ourselves, one another, and all of Nature. 

When I brought through the information in Chakras Alive! Exploring and Expanding Your Inner Rainbow, my awareness of Heart’s centrality grew. 

Here’s an excerpt from what I received when I asked for better understanding of the heart chakra’s role:

I am the place where energies merge to support your Highest function. I am the balance, the fulcrum point, for your true nature to experience the blend of Heaven and Earth. I am the animating experience of Life, that which makes it valuable throughout and beyond all time and space. I am the vortex for re-creation of old habits, thoughts and beliefs, the potential dross of experience, into high achievements – the glory of true self-love, courage, forgiveness, release, Conditionless Love acknowledged and honored throughout Infinity.

I am the place where Earthly Life begins and ends; the place that monitors and reflects spiritual achievement, the only achievement that is eternal.

My experiences reverberate throughout all your earthly lifetimes and all forms of your existence. I am here to help you experience LOVE, the building block and uniting force of All-That-Is.

I am your closest connection to reality; the cornerstone of all that has worth. I have no limits, and I help you re-member your spiritual nature.

I serve your Highest Good by connecting you with the Heavenly Light, reinforcing your ability to know your connection with All-That-Is, and to shine!

I am thrilled to play this role in your life and support all your Life-liness!

I empower you to BE all of your High nature NOW and impart the wisdom of the Highest realms to support you in this.

I unleash energies that harmonize you with the Universe and Earthly Life simultaneously. I allow you to understand Life and all of its creations at deep, deep levels. I undergird all of your actions and choices with the capacity to hold more Light.

I am both Universal and personal. I accept all, connect all, and support all throughout your system, life, and beyond.

I am a catalyst for recognizing the human and Universal energy field. I am the portal for true connection and Oneness bliss. I am the home port of all Earthly existence. I am the support for your recognition of the Divine within and without.

I am your Love come home to roost, to receive, to extend to all others at one and the same time, because I live the law of “giving and receiving are one.”

I am your center energetically, emotionally, and spiritually; the giver and receiver of Love. I process unpleasant emotions as well, and the knowledge of your Heart Wisdom.
I provoke continual amazement from the centers for off-world planning, as they contemplate your spiritual exploits and achievements.

I know no limits, no boundaries, to the Love that All ultimately is, and I am rescued by your willingness to be guided by my wealth of knowing.

I am lavishly supportive of Life.

Goddess Heart Rising for October 2019

Goddess art, visionary art, holistic wellness, Persephone, goddess archetype

Tenacity, Journey through the Underworld, Regeneration.  Image & text copyright Roslyn McGrath.

No wonder I’ve drawn Persephone from my Goddess Heart Rising Cards for October! The weather has become decidedly autumnal here, and our political trek through the Underworld is undeniably in process.

In these times, our inner work becomes particularly crucial. Persephone reminds us that everything has its season, and that with tenacity and inner reflection, we can make the most of that and come out the other side into regeneration.

I invite you to look within. What patterns do you desire to shift in yourself? If this focus is distracted by your passionate resistance to some form of turmoil in the world, what values is this showing you hold dear, and how can you more fully embody these values in your thoughts, words, and deeds?

I’ll be posting more related to Persephone throughout the month of October. And if you’d like me to support you in your inner trek and re-patterning through a remote or in-person 1:1 Body-Mind-Soul session, please know that I would be honored to do so, and  feel welcome to contact me.

Namaste & many blessings,

Roslyn Elena McGrath

Spiritual Travels & Support

spiritual healing in MI's Upper Peninsula, U.P. holistic practitioner, holistic wellness business, spiritual travel, Roslyn Elena McGrath's spiritual travels

Ten years ago today, I landed in Lima, Peru for the start of a solo journey through four Peru locations over three weeks.

I hadn’t intended to go solo, but none of the friends I talked to about going with me were able to follow through, and my calling to go was not to be ignored.

The trip was more challenging in many ways than I’d anticipated, but the high points made it well worth it, particularly at Machu Pichu. And I came back with what I called my “inner ox” fully activated –  showing me  I can handle more risk than I typically take on, along with other spiritual gifts from my experience. (Plus, I  learned why people choose to travel with tour groups! )

Today is also two weeks since I returned from a Soul Recognition Retreat, at which I  experienced tangible heart and soul connection and support from  a large group as part of a very powerful clearing and accelerated integration of my soul-the other side of the coin to my Peru experience.

spiritual retreat, Soul Recognition

It’s too soon for me to be able to put too many words around this new experience as yet, or to point to exactly how it’s reshaping my world, but I know that it is, and that I’m the stronger for it, and better able to serve those I work with due in part to the loving Grace of all the support provided there. And how perfect that I am already scheduled to share “Harvesting Your Inner Riches” near the Fall Equinox!

Many thanks, love, and blessings to all the members of Soul Support Systems, SSS founder Flo Aeveia Magdalena, and all the facilitators, facilitators-in-training, and participants who attended.

I look forward to witnessing all of our continued blossoming, and its impact in the world.

Namaste & many blessings,

Roslyn Elena McGrath
