Releasing Old Patterns

Recently I shared on my youtube zeffi devi into the meaning of the energies we are going through.  That same process is still ongoing through the end of June, now via the positions of the planets ( June 12th through June 15th ).  I spoke about a “squeezing” experience – that we are being squeezed and pushed through old patterns, old situations, and beyond things that don’t serve us anymore.  It is important to let those things go.  All of this is to get to our spiritual Self, which is able to move through life with ease and grace.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JRaV_0yMsI&t=32s )

During this time, I feel it is very important to continue supporting each other, through any ways we can – whether it be simply listening to someone, or opening our hearts and really looking at ourselves deeply so we can expand that to others- surrendering and not judging.  Allow others their process.  Note that what they bring in front of you is also a part of yourself.  And we are going to have to make choices out of these experiences.

Take for example a relationship or a situation at a crossroads:  Do you want to stay in it if doesn’t serve you?  Can you take personal responsibility and say to another person, “this is actually about me, this is how I feel, and it is not a judgment or a projection onto you”?  It’s about taking responsibility in our relationships, and taking responsibility for ourselves – if something doesn’t serve us, can we move out of it as fast as we can, or do we prolong it?

We judge everything from our old experiences, which have created patterns and belief systems, and this creates expectations.  It is very important for us to get to know that.

So just remember in the next month, from now until July, that this is what’s getting squeezed out of us- old expectations, old patterns, old paradigm.  We need to surrender those old habits. We’re steel being squeezed between planets.  So whatever the feelings you had then are likely to reoccur for the next month.  After that we should start feeling a little lighter.

I am in Greece right now till mid July . From 20th of May till 30th of May I’m travelling to south of France to connect with the Divine Feminine Mary Magdalene . Stay tune for more information and experience from the Divine Feminine .

DIWALI

The Goddess Lakshmi

WhatsApp Image 2018-11-06 at 6.20.39 PM.jpeg

The next new moon November 6th is upon us , and will mark the celebration for the Goddess Lakshmi.

“Being allowed to participate in this act of adoration showed me that this is the Goddess of us all. She is all women and in her we can find the divinity within ourselves.”

From October 9th to October 19th, the Goddess Durga leads us into the next celebration called “Diwali” which is the Festival of Lights held in India. The Goddess Lakshmi will descend upon the Earth and banish the darkness of poverty, stagnation, anger and laziness. It is believed that she only blesses the houses that are clean and where hard-working people reside. She is also accompanied by her owl on this night especially, to take her into the darker corners of the world to bring in the light.

The Goddess is worshipped to acquire or to preserve wealth of all kinds, bringing us to her eight aspects:

Adi Lakshmi which is her primary manifestation;
Dhanya Lakshmi, for granary wealth;
Dhairya Lakshmi, for wealth in courage;
Gaja Lakshmi, shown with elephants which represent wealth;
Santana Lakshmi, for wealth of continuity;
Viyaja Lakshmi, for wealth of victory;
Vidya Lakshmi, for wealth of knowledge and education;
and Dhana Lakshmi, for monetary wealth.

As you can probably see, this is a very special and powerful time occuring right now! It is important for all of us to “clean house” and be ready for the opportunities that are coming our way, if not already before us. We just need to open ourselves to receiving that which is rightfully ours. Think about what it is you want. Think of Goddess Lakshmi and pray to her for the abundance you seek.

With that, we will close this time with a meditation to help you focus on creating a welcoming atmosphere for the Goddess Lakshmi.

On November 6 th, using the picture of Lakshmi here, which you can print, make a small altar on a red cloth. Put a small cup of purified water, red flowers and light a green candle. Play some music that you like or chants, and visualize the picture of Lakshmi becoming you. Let her come into you, and sit in that form quietly for as long as you can. Twenty minutes would be great. When you finish, drink the water and let the candle burn for as long as you are comfortable with it. Purchasing a green “prayer” candle in a glass container is a safer way to keep the light burning.

Hopefully, this meditation will bring to you the spiritual wealth you desire in all aspects of your life.

TANTRIC PATH

_MG_3647.jpg

In all those temples Zeffi was busy everyday by offering her pujas. Several people from all around the world, from different religions, ages and sex, had asked her to do the ceremony and say some prays for their own good or their beloveds. Devoted to her mission and with great discipline, even the most difficult days (the ones she was working on her personal spiritual growth) she was following tireless the procedure. There and when the distance from one place to the other was allowing me to ask her some questions, we were talking about Tantra:

   “Wrongly in western world Tantra is connected with sex” Zeffi said. “It is an approach that misrepresents the real meaning. Our Yoni is not only a sex organ. It is the organ that we give birth to the world. In India, Yoni represents the Universe and truly it is the organ with the most powerful life-forcing energy there is on the planet. Unfortunately, people use it only for sex. Imagine if you could learn how to use that internal fire of you for your own Enlightenment.

In yoga we know that this fire is located at the base of our spine. It is called Kundalini. As knowledge forgotten (or secret for many) for thousands of years, nowadays more and more people learn how to activate it. With deep meditation and secret high tantric techniques, we come closer to that source. It takes many years of practicing and having a teacher here is essential. It is not possible to achieve this knowledge in a “three days course”, by watching a video or by reading a book… Real Tantra takes years of practicing and has nothing to do with sex”. And she continued: “We already talked about the Red color you see everywhere around you. We said that represents the root chakra, the blood of menstruation and the fire that activates the energy inside of us. By wearing Red in Maa-Kamakhya, Priests activate that energy in every aspect of our lives. No matter if you are a priest or a pilgrim, a Hindu or a Christian, a man or a woman, that Red color reminds you of the activation you agreed to participate. And by activating the energy, you become the God and the Goddess inside of you”.

  Finally, Zeffi talked to me about Shiva and his role in all of this. “You asked me yesterday why there is a Shiva temple on a hill that is dedicated to the Goddess and all her aspects. You had this question also the other day when we went to that Shiva temple in the island inside the river Brahmaputra. Well, Shiva loved Sati like anything in the world. By loosing her, he lost his mind (which means he became unbalanced, right?). Shiva almost destroyed what had been building for millions of years before. Alex, wherever there is a Goddess there is always a God to love her and to protect her. If you noticed, that temple in Brahmaputra looks towards the hill. His role is to remind her “I will always be here for you”. Of course female energy is very powerful but it means nothing without her other equal, the male energy. You always need a lingam to activate the fire inside a yoni. The two parts complete the Divine Union and like this they bring balance in the Universe. And just because inside every human being, there are these two parts asking always for balance, this is what we believe in Tantra:

 Bring in balance the man and the woman inside of you and achieve the Enlightenment you search”.

Are you feeling all the power of the recent solar eclipse and new moon ?

Are you feeling all the power of the recent solar eclipse and new moon?  Is it stirring up your passions and creativity?  Helping you set a new course for living your purpose? Eclipses are a portal for exponential growth so you may notice that you feel a deeper connection to your divine feminine wisdom.

With that in mind we wanted to share with you a special gift: our Free E-Book THE 3 KEYS TO IGNITING YOUR DIVINE FEMININE FIRE.

These Keys are designed to help open that deep part of yourself that you didn’t even know was there and unlock your powerful shakti energy so you can discover and live your sacred passions.

Have you ever wondered why you keep repeating the same things over and over again in all parts of your life?  Why is the same energy in your field being repeated? How many times have you found yourself knocking your head against the same problem?

So often we find ourselves living under anxiety and stress and don’t recognize what is causing it because we are disconnected from ourselves. Therefore, it is essential that we learn how this pattern developed and re-align ourselves with our inner knowing so we can be liberated from this cycle.  When we are living in our connected truth we are secure and don’t allow negative emotions to stop us from creating the life we want. Just like our Womb, our female power is liquid and in flow, not in resistance.  

These 3 Keys are designed to help you let go of your stress and anxiety and get your power back.
 

Once you use these 3 Keys you will:

Be in the flow of daily life

Able to recognize your fears and release them as they arise

Understand your patterns and be in touch with your inner truth

Live in your feminine power instead of your masculine power

Walk into a room and have people see your unshakable essence

JULY 2018

COMPASSION, IN EVERY MOMENT

Hello everyone!  There has been a lot of intense energy swirling in the collective consciousness these past couple months.  So much is being asked of us during this amazing transitional time.  While a lot of changes are happening, I find it best to completely surrender with the flow of energy, and to come from the place of our hearts.  Our heads oftentimes make big misunderstandings of our situations.  Truly, this is a time for us to understand through compassion, to feel compassion, and to act out of the wisdom that compassion brings.

In my personal life, there were many challenges that I was able to turn into beautiful experiences, through shifting the way I choose to see it.   The challenges were my teachers for the deeper understanding of compassion within myself.   The blessing is to actually live it, everyday.  This month, I was blessed with the privilege of visiting Amma in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

097970-blessed-with-a-hug.jpg

With the company of my two beautiful goddess companions, I stood patiently waiting in line for the moment to be in Amma’s embrace.  It was a special time near the end of the 4 day-long event.  It had already been three days of Amma, the compassionate hugging mother, dressed all in white, giving her ecstatic hugs.  Then on the last day, as myself and my friends waited in line for our moment with her, Amma conducted the Devi Bhava Puja.  She thereby invokes the divine feminine within herself, so that when one is given a blessed embrace from her, they are also being blessed by the divine feminine, as the divine feminine in themselves is also awakened.

The experience felt particularly magical for us, as we were specifically pulled out of the line immediately after the ceremony and brought to the front to be the first to hug Amma.  Even more incredibly, we were directly asked to stay there on the stage after, as devotees continued to pour in for their embraces with Amma.  How does one explain such an experience?  To me, when I was up there hugging her, I felt the compassion that she has for the whole world, inside of myself.  As we stood there for a timeless two hours, we allowed that sweet and sacred energy to wash over us, and I felt we had been called upon to stay in order to hold that energetic space, ecstatic in Amma’s loving presence.  It was blissful, pure, connected, divine, full of the deepest compassion.  You just melt into her energy as she embraces you, because her compassion is so great you find yourself in sweet and total surrender.  You come out of it with a blissful clarity, and deeper understanding of the universal love she is bringing to the world.

To me, it was a miracle, and it calls me to recognize those miracles that are happening everyday, in our everyday lives as well.  These miracles are the teachers, the reminders, to share that love with everyone I come into contact with.  The trip to Santa Fe was unexpected, but so beautiful; with a flow that was incredible and without obstacles.  I was quickly and easily in Amma’s arms, and to me it was a great gift.

img_0732-300x225.jpeg

The other miracle and gift, was that my little dog Chandi was allowed to go into the ceremony and to stay.  She was the only service allowed to come in.

My recommendation for this month is that you really try to figure out how in your life you can come from compassion.  In your heart, explore how can you forgive people that actually hurt you.  Even the closest people in your life, see where you can find the love for them.  And see how you can send them constant love, daily.  Because you can feel their pain, you understand where they are coming from.

I recommend this daily meditation practice, even if it is just five minutes a day:  Put your chosen people in front of you, and send them all the unconditional love you can.  Its a good practice to do daily.  And it helps us follow and lead from our hearts all the time; instead of our minds, instead of our ego.  If you do this practice, there will be small miracles that will show up in your life:  They will make you feel like, “uh huh, I am in my heart, I am in my compassion.”  These little miracles in your daily life are going to be the spark, and the driving force to keep you going in love, and to keep your compassion meditation happening daily.

My experience with Amma, with the whole surprise and ease of getting to see her, as well as the perfect companionship and the fact that Chandi was aloud to be present – These are the kinds of miracles I’m talking about.  And there are miracles in our lives everyday.  So find your miracle daily.  Find your experience daily.

UPCOMING EVENTS…

I will be taking the energy of this beautiful experience with Amma into the future.  My next planned event is in Europe, where I’ll have the pleasure of presenting at the Leading Wellbeing Research Festival in Lake District, UK, from July 16th through the 18th.   For more information, please visit www.lifeworth.com

Then in late August, I return to Sedona to make full preparations for Ancient Healing’s upcoming Woman Arising Conference.  I invite all women to be part of this beautiful conference retreat we are creating.  It will be a great opportunity for us to discover the divine feminine within ourselves.  We are currently developing a dynamic lineup of female presenters, and are asking them to share with us their deepest experiences and insights.  I definitely recommend making the effort to be present with us among the beautiful red rocks of Sedona October 30th – November 1st.

For more information and to register, please visit www.ancienthealing.org/schedule/events

If you register by August 30th it’s only $195 after that it goes to $245

If you feel open to receive this beautiful Woman Arising gift we are creating, please send an email to zeffi@ancienthealing.org.  I also invite you to share this newsletter with any other women, whom you feel might be interested in discovering the divine feminine within themselves.  I would really appreciate that.  We are forming a spectacular group of women attending.

MAKING WAY FOR THE NEW - JUNE 2016

Hello Everyone,

First of all, I want to start with a big thank you. Thank you to all the sponsors and all of the amazing support I’ve received since February. Many of you, and other angels in my life, have stepped up into key roles to support Ancient Healing, and this has allowed me to focus on continuing this year’s goals. Because of your support, we are full on in the creation of Woman Arising, and for me, especially dear to my heart, I have been more able to share my work with the world for the purpose of helping others. I have been very busy and inspired- I had the opportunity to present at Shakti Fest, to make a beautiful commercial for Woman Arising, create an Ancient Healing Youtube channel, work on my book revisions, and to continue giving ample energy to my work as a healer.

zeffi-shakti-fest-pic.jpg

This picture is from ShaktiFest, an amazing experience where I met a lot of people and made great connections. I hope to participate again next year, and I am inspired to keep presenting at these kinds of events. The audience received it beautifully. One person even told me it was one of her favorite presentations, and I also overheard people talking with each other saying it was an incredible experience. My work was welcomed and appreciated by the participants, and this is my fuel to continue. I am very grateful for the opportunity and the feedback.

GLOBAL WELLNESS DAY

Ancient Healing and Woman Arising are sponsoring a booth for female entrepreneurs at Global Wellness Day, June 11th, 10 am – 3 pm at The Collective, a new community space in the Village of Oak Creek where we will also be hosting Woman Arising. The booth will feature several female entrepreneurs, and is included as a mid-year Woman Arising event. I hope you can join us for a wonderful time together at this celebration and wellness awareness event.
It will actually fit well with what’s going on energetically and astrologically in the world now…

RELEASING OLD PATTERNS

Recently I shared some insight into the meaning of the eclipses we went through. That same process is still ongoing through the end of June, now via the positions of the planets. I spoke about a “squeezing” experience – that we are being squeezed and pushed through old patterns, old situations, and beyond things that don’t serve us anymore. It is important to let those things go. All of this is to get to our spiritual Self, which is able to move through life with ease and grace.

During this time, I feel it is very important to continue supporting each other, through any ways we can – whether it be simply listening to someone, or opening our hearts and really looking at ourselves deeply so we can expand that to others- surrendering and not judging. Allow others their process. Note that what they bring in front of you is also a part of yourself. And we are going to have to make choices out of these experiences.

Take for example a relationship or a situation at a crossroads: Do you want to stay in it if doesn’t serve you? Can you take personal responsibility and say to another person, “this is actually about me, this is how I feel, and it is not a judgment or a projection onto you”? It’s about taking responsibility in our relationships, and taking responsibility for ourselves – if something doesn’t serve us, can we move out of it as fast as we can, or do we prolong it?

We judge everything from our old experiences, which have created patterns and belief systems, and this creates expectations. It is very important for us to get to know that.
So just remember in the next month, from now until July, that this is what’s getting squeezed out of us- old expectations, old patterns, old paradigm. We need to surrender those old habits. This is a “9” year – a year of completions so so we can have new beginnings. We’re no longer being squeezed between the eclipses, but being squeezed between planets. So whatever the feelings you had then are likely to reoccur for the next month. After that we should start feeling a little lighter.

I am happy to help you through this process, and am available for sessions in person or via the phone. For those of you in Sedona, I will be here until mid June. Then I travel to Greece until early September, where I will be available for in-person sessions, or sessions via phone. I am also happy to announce I will be giving a Shakti workshop for women in Florence, Italy June 17th – 21st.
Please contact zeffi@ancienthealing.org to sign up.

ECLIPSE TRANSFORMATION & FEELING EMOTION - MARCH 2016

Hello Everyone,

Between the solar eclipse with the new moon on the 8th of March, to today’s lunar eclipse (March 23rd), we are still working with very strong energies.  The truth is that we’re being squeezed, from the positive and the negative side.  It’s very important for our inner light to shine, first for ourselves, and then for others.  And also to go deep into uncovering our shadow self.

You have probably been feeling these cosmic effects, and I want to remind you that it is an important time to bring your light to the world- also to bring the light of awareness to your own darkness.  When our darkness isn’t looked at, it can create shadow energies around us.  This is a time to purify that, and to understand that both exist within you- the light and the dark.  The reason we are being squeezed between the eclipses is to illuminate every part of ourselves so our true selves can shine.

What happened in Brussels yesterday- the bombing – there is a lot of anger and negativity hidden in those people, and the way they’ve chosen for this moment to express it is by hurting others.  There is another way, for each of us.  And that way is to always be our true self in the moment that we feel it.  We have to look at our own darkness, and shine the light of truth into it.

In order to move forward now, it is important to feel your emotional states, even if you feel some discomfort with them.  When you really feel that discomfort, you are actually raising your vibration.  It rises out of the recognition of the discomfort.

The feeling of being squeezed between these two eclipses is because we are  actually expanding – expanding to the next level of our initiation.  I read somewhere, and I don’t remember where, but we are spiritual beings having a human experience.  And this is really up in your face this year.  There is no escaping it.

If you hide your feelings from yourself and others, and you pretend to be all love and light in order to put on a show for others, and even to put on a show for yourself, this can cause you to become spiritually rigid.  Dry.  And actually out of balance.  We may say everything is all about compassion and love, and we wear white and we’re vegetarian, and supposedly living in our hearts.  But for most of us that means that we are hiding our shadow.  Suppressing our shadow.   

For years and years we can hide it, even from ourselves.  But it is best to be aware of it and express it in a healthy way, in the moment that you are feeling it. Really feeling it, in and of itself, is a form of expression, and being in that presence is actually being the true you.  It is right to allow the emotion to be.  Otherwise the shadow continues to grow, and eventually can create chaos in your life and the lives of those around you.

When you allow yourself to feel the emotions, then you let them go faster, you release them.  If you don’t allow yourself to feel, and to even express sometimes if it is needed, then that can become repressed energy, can become resentment, and can eventually cause catastrophe.  Just think of how much energy you use holding things in and repressing.  It’s a drain- it can make you physically sick.  

Even to be too much in the light- too spiritually rigid, too many cleanses – can cause you to be out of balance.  Can even make you physically ill.

So the point of this time is to be in balance.  And its much the same as being in your truth that I’ve spoken to you about before.  

108-chakras-60-1024x633.jpg

 

This picture is called the Holy 108.  I chose it to represent the “squeezing” energy we  are in between the two eclipses- solar and lunar.

We are being pressed between the sun and the moon, between the extremes of dry spirituality and intense negativity.  All of this pressure is teaching us to find the balance- the balance that arises out of awareness of your true self- out of being aware of both sides of yourself- the negative and the positive – the sun and the moon.  This is a time that is helping us to raise our vibration, to expand to the next level.  

If you walk the middle path with both of them balanced and give equal awareness to each, that is the middle path.  From there you can expand- whole, complete, divine.

This month, and actually the next 6 months is a big manifestation time.  If you are in balance, and you think positive, you will manifest positive.  If you are out of balance, and your shadow has grown big, and then you think negatively, this is a sure way to create negative manifestations, especially with the energies that are coming in the next 6 months.

Honor the pressure that has been happening inside you between these eclipses.  Balance yourself.  Then focus on the balanced self.

Remember, you are a spiritual being, being in the physical body, and having all of the feelings that come with it.  So those two also need to be in balance- your spirit and your body.

I am available to help in this process if you should wish it.

Always,

Zeffi
