Authentic Freedom is a protocol and practice developed by Lauri Ann Lumby which supports you in identifying and then healing the fears that have kept you imprisoned by your past wounding and cultural conditioning.

Through recorded lessons, reading, discussion, mindfulness and creativity practices, you will be given the tools to identify, heal and transform the fears that:

There is not enough.
You are insignificant and have nothing of value to offer the world.
You cannot live as our most authentic selves.
You are not loved (or that love has to be earned or can be taken away).
You  are not free to express our truth.
You do not know the truth.
You are alone.

At the end of this course, you will have the tools to support you in the continued liberation from your fears and the conditioning that has placed them there.

Taking Back Our Power to Choose
For the past 5000 years our world has been imprisoned by those who benefit from a people afraid.  For 5000 years, we have been conditioned by institutions that manipulate and control us through fear, guilt and shame.  Religious institutions, governments, corporations, banks, advertising, social media, education, health care, pharmaceutical companies and the insurance industry (to name a few) are all guilty of benefiting from a people afraid.  As has always been true of feudal societies, only a few truly benefit from a culture rooted in fear.  The rest are made to suffer while those who are manipulating us are getting rich at our expense.

When we stop believing in these fears by healing the conditioning that caused these fears in the first place, we are no longer vulnerable to manipulation and are free to choose love instead of fear.  In choosing love, we are able to experience the peace, freedom and union spoken of by the ancients and which has been taught by the highest expression of every spiritual tradition on this planet.

It is time that we say NO MORE by taking back our power to choose by healing our wounds and transcending cultural conditioning.

SCRIPTURE (gasp!) Please note that with great intention I use Judeo-Christian scripture as part of this course.  I do so ON PURPOSE because for many in our culture, scripture has been used against them.  Christianity (especially certain expressions of Christianity) have twisted Jesus’ message of love into one of hatred and fear.  It is my hope that by presenting scripture in a different way – not as a vehicle of manipulation and control – but as a vehicle through which you can find and become empowered in LOVE- we can not only be healed of our societal fears, but also of those which have been heaped upon us by institutional religion.

 

Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, OPM, MATS  supports you in becoming a fully awakened and self-actualized human being by giving you the freedom to choose love in a world conditioned by fear.    Lauri does this through her trademarked protocol – Authentic Freedom which harnesses the knowledge and wisdom of the ancients and applies it in the modern world.  Here you will find fulfillment for the deepest longing of your Soul – to know and to be known.  Lauri is the owner of Authentic Freedom Academy and founder of the Temple of the Magdalene. She lives in Oshkosh, WI. You can learn more about Lauri, her writings, programs and services at Authentic Freedom (dot) Love.

New Online Course – Mastering the Shadow

Mastering the Shadow – transforming your deepest fears and unhealed wounds is a shamanic ritual practice for those who find themselves in the depths of their core spiritual wounds and who are longing to be free of their effects so they might once again be anchored in their original wholeness.  Mastering the Shadow is a practice that is meant to be returned to again and again as the symptoms of your core wound are triggered.  With on-going attention to this practice, you will be “loving yourself back together.”

This training includes instruction in and step by step guidance through the eight stages of the Mastering the Shadow shamanic ritual practice along with a downloadable PDF of the practice for your ongoing use.

Learn more and register HERE.  

From the course introduction:

Mastering the Shadowtransforming your deepest fears and unhealed wounds is a shamanic ritual and practice for those who find themselves in the depths of their core spiritual wounds.  These are the wounds that are specifically related to the core wound of separation but are unique to each individual depending on how they first experienced this wound.

This is a mastery practice because it demands an ongoing, diligent practice of personal accountability.  This is NOT the kind of practice where you can “think” your pain away.  Through this practice you will dive deeply into the core of your pain – being in and with that pain, for the sake of supporting its transformation and release while re-integrating the part of your soul that was lost to the original wounding.

This work is eq1ually not about “letting it go” as separation is implicit in the idea of letting go.  As the Buddhist sages remind, “What you resist will persist.”  If you believe you need to be rid of something by letting it go, you are only creating more separation.  This practice invites you instead to draw the pain intimately close where you will be literally loving yourself back together.

Separation of the Worlds

Good morning sisters and brothers, today is a BIG NEWS day!

After several experiences/events that all came together I believe we are at the “separation of the worlds” that has been heralded for years by the “ascension community.” I may be writing more about this in depth soon, but for now, this is what we need to know:

(This is shared from the membership section of this site.  To learn more and join, click HERE. )

1) The old world is dying and beyond repair. We have come forward with the offering of our gifts and they have been repeatedly refused. We cannot help or save the dying world. This much has become clear. We need to let it die…..even if that means standing back and watching it burn. (sad face)

2) This is heartbreaking and sad, so we must grieve. It is appropriate in the face of a dying world to grieve its death and to grieve all we have offered to help save it, which it refused. It is appropriate to grieve.

3) A time of retreat is also appropriate. We need time away from the dying world to create the space out of which the new world may come forth.

4) We need each other. We need to be support for each other as we grieve and as we support ourselves in making room for the new world that is coming forth out of us. We need each other as a check in, as a source of strength, encouragement and support. We will NOT get that support from the dying world, but only from those who are here to bring forth the new.

5) The temptation to get drawn back into the dying world WILL BE STRONG. We must do all we can to resist that temptation, remembering we are not here to save a dying world. WHEN we get drawn back in (the louder the dying world becomes the more we will be tempted), we will be reminded that that world is no longer our own and we will know it by how exhausted we will become when we allow ourselves to get drawn in.

6) Self-care is of utmost importance. In fact, it is the most important thing for us to do at this time. If we are to be the energy that holds the world in its death whole birthing the new, we need to be well cared for ourselves. Rest. Retreat. Self-nurturing. AND being in the company of like-minded people.

7) We cannot do this alone. I am beginning to suspect that it is for this very purpose that I was called to create this membership platform. To create a space where we can connect to gain strength and encouragement for what is coming – is already here.

8) Hope. The eternal promise is that death makes way for new life. This is the law of the universe. The even deeper law is that everything that has been came forth out of nothing – the great eternal void. Such will be the case of the new world. We cannot see it. (though glimpses of it are all around us). We might not even be able to dream it. But, we can feel it. It is in our DNA and in every cell of our being. The new world is who we are and why we are here. And there is nothing we need to “Do” to make it happen. It is happening through us. All we need to do is create space for the Being that is required for the emergence of that world.

9) Call. This is why we are here. To be witness to the separation of the world – the world that is dying and the world that is seeking to be born, and the birth of the new world begins with the worlds that we create for ourselves.

Love,
Lauri

It’s Time to Awaken Out of Our Collective Paralysis

From the day that Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, my business took a HUGE hit.  Seemingly overnight, my business went from somewhat sustainable to me having to get a part-time “real” job.  When it would seem as if the opposite should be true – that people would be clamoring to my door in search of support, they have not.  Instead, it seems that those who were looking forward to more of the same in Hilary or Bernie retreated into their respective hidey-holes.  In shock and afraid, instead of coming forward in support of their desire for a new world, they beat a loud retreat.  Screaming from their half-opened door all they hate about Donald Trump and the “conservative regime,” while doing little to bring forth the new world they say they want.

Admittedly, I was initially one of those people.  But after giving myself over to the shock, I went deep within myself for an answer to my quandary – “How and why did this happen?”   The answer came quickly and clearly, and for this I must offer a heart-felt thank you to all those who supported the Republican platform by voting for Trump.  In clear and concise terms, I was told that Donald Trump was elected so that he could fulfill his mission as “Angel of Death” (Cue Prince of Egypt).  Again, I offer a heart-felt thank you for those who have supported Donald Trump because since the moment he took office the veil has been parted, revealing one shadow after another after another of the dying world.  From political corruption to child sex trafficking, to #MeToo, to corporate corruption, to inequalities in taxation, to the system that supports the rich getting richer on the backs of the poor, to corporate enslavement to the racism, sexism, nationalism, prejudice, and pride that seems to run our nation and its capitalistic agenda.

While I personally find Donald Trump to be a despicable human being, I can see beyond the person, the shock and the trauma into the higher purpose of his presidency.  If ever given a chance, I would personally thank him for what he has done to show us the shadow of Western culture.  In short – WE SUCK!  In our relentless pursuit of wealth, power and fame, we are destroying our world.  I could go on and on and one about all the ways this has shown itself to be true, but if you’ve read this far, you know how this has shown itself and this is NOT the point of my post.

The point is that Donald Trump has accomplished his mission.

NOW IT IS TIME FOR US TO AWAKEN OUT OF OUR COLLECTIVE PARALYSIS

…and get to work building the new world!

But first some words of comfort:

Building a new world does not mean anarchy;

Neither does it require revolution – not of a violent kind anyway.

I will add, however, that the extent to which we are uncomfortable or afraid of the new world is proportional to how much we are clinging to what we know and to what we have believed would sustain us.  This is true for conservatives, progressives, and liberals alike.  What is true in the natural world is true for us – In order to bring forth the new, something must to die – and that death is likely to be something we have made familiar and in which we have placed our beliefs (like the caterpillar before died to become the butterfly). Grief is assured as we let go of the old to make way for the new, and I (and many others like me) am here to help support you as you let go of that which no longer serves to help make way for the new.

But back to the original message.  If we say we want change in our world.  If we believe it is time for the old to pass away to make way for the new.  Then it is time for us to WAKE UP out of our paralysis and get to work.  But, here’s the deal:

 

Building the new world has NOTHING to do with what is “out there.”

and

Building the new world is 100% an inside job! 

 

We cannot bring forth the new world that we yearn for in our collective souls without first anchoring that world within ourselves – and that is no easy task.  It requires that we, like our nation/world, pull back the veil of all that we have hidden from ourselves:

  • Our fears.
  • Our wounds.
  • Our past traumas.
  • Our privilege.
  • The true source of our comfort.
  • And everything within and outside of us that separates us from others (conditioning).

 

Then we have to FEEL the reality of this separation.  We must feel and face our fears, our wounds, and our traumas and bring them into the cauldron of transformation that resides within us.  We must be willing to be freed of these fears, etc. and the “benefits” we get from remaining in that fear.  Then we are required to identify all the ways in which we benefit from a culture of separation and “let that shit go.” All of this is easier said than done which is why in the past, very few have been up to that task.  But, if we are serious about wanting a new world and wanting to be part of bringing that forth, unless we do this deep, inner work, WE WILL FAIL.  Period.

But this time we do not need to fail.  We have the tools, the resources and access to the ancient teachings which support us in healing from the wound of separation so that we can once again live in the world as it was meant to be:

Who is with me?
