Being a Catalyst

The Plight of the Sh.t-Disturber

I recently posted an article To See or Not to See – That is the Question, exploring the gift of spiritual sight.  There is one challenge with this gift I neglected to mention:

The ability to see all the way to people’s (and organizations’) truest and most authentic selves and the potential that lay within them for a meaningful, purposeful and fulfilling life.

I see who they are meant to be behind all the masks they show to the world along who they came into this world to be behind all the unhealed wounds and unacknowledged fears that keep them imprisoned in an unfulfilling, unrewarding life.

Along with this ability, is the very real experience that happens when I see someone in this way – they begin to wake up. The very fact that I can see them….really see them, stirs something within them that knows they are not living as their most authentic self, that they are not being who they came into this world to be.  Call it guilt, or shame, or a feeling we don’t yet have a word for – something stirs in them – a kind of discomfort that they somehow recognize came from me, through me or because of me.  Some people are excited to feel this experience of awakening and are glad for being seen so they can begin to acknowledge and unleash their true selves.  Others – not so much.  Not everyone wants to be seen and certainly not everyone wants to do the REALLY HARD work of becoming their true selves.  For the former, I am a welcome source of support.  For the latter, I often become the enemy.

I will wholeheartedly admit that the latter experience has been a source of pain for me. This has been especially true in close relationships as well as in EVERY SINGLE work or academic institution I have been connected with.  I show up and sh.t starts happening.  The lies, the falsehoods, deceptions, misguided motivations, compulsions and attachments all begin to show themselves.  While this is happening, I’m being shown all the resources of support that would benefit their healing and the realization of their truest most authentic self.  I suggest these supports which are either met with blank stares and deaf ears or outright condemnation and rejection.  At this point, the relationship is now in question and I am either forced to leave or I decide to leave on my own.  It is difficult, if not impossible, to remain in a place where our gifts are not welcome.  At this point all I can do is sit and watch as the house of cards they have built for and around themselves comes tumbling down.

The opposite, however, is true of those who are excited and grateful to be seen and who want to pursue a purposeful and fulfilling life reflective of their own unique gifts and passions. These are the people and institutions in whom my gifts find their fulfillment, resulting in a co-creative dynamic of receptivity and openness where they are liberated from the inner wounds and fears which might otherwise keep them from living as their most authentic selves.  It is a beautiful thing to behold and it is because of these people that I continue to do what I do in spite of those who want to hate me for my gifts.  (PS  They don’t really hate me, they hate themselves for refusing their own truth.)

The Rise of the Divine Masculine

The Divine Masculine is a quality that resides within all of us – whether we identify as man, woman or other. In Western “civilization,” the Divine Masculine has been mostly absent as we have lived under the tyrannical reign of the unholy masculine.  The unholy masculine is the corruption of all that was originally intended in the divine masculine and is known by its motivation which is fear, power and control. The unholy masculine takes control and then rules through these motivations, making others subservient to it, creating a hierarchical, patriarchal paradigm which privileges male over female,  competition over cooperation, taking over sharing, war over peace, violence over harmony, etc. etc. etc.  It is the unholy masculine (along with its hideous partner the unholy feminine) that is destroying our world.

Divine Masculine, Holy Masculine, Divine Feminine, Holy Feminine, unholy masculine,

The Divine and Holy Masculine is none of these things and is/was the original way in which human beings were meant to live – in partnership with the other half of our Divine Souls – the Holy Feminine.

The purpose of the Divine Masculine is to defend our Soul. The Soul is the Divine within us which seeks to be known in and through the world.  The Soul is the bearer of our unique giftedness and the unique calling we all have to find meaning and fulfillment in our lives, for our own sake and then in service to the betterment of the world.  The Soul knows who we are and who we are called to be.  But, because we live in a world that does not honor our Soul, the Soul has become vulnerable.  Instead, the world around us (that has been created by the Unholy Masculine) tries to tell us who we are and how to live our lives.  Every time our Soul – our true calling – tries to make itself known, we are criticized, condemned, judged, even rejected because the Soul cannot be put into a box.  Our Soul wants FREEDOM in a world that seeks to imprison us with its fear.

As we begin to listen to the voice of our Soul, a great healing takes place. We begin to see through the lies and manipulations of the unholy masculine (and the unholy feminine).  We also begin to see how we have all indulged in and been controlled by the unholy within and outside of us.  We come to understand the deep woundedness within us that caused the unholy to emerge in the first place and we work toward healing these wounds.  Then, and only then, can the Holy within (that which is our truest nature) begin to emerge.

For people of all genders, this journey begins with the rise of the Divine Feminine. We begin to understand our feminine gifts of receiving and allowing, nurturing and supporting.  We become comfortable with our emotions, the ever-shifting sands of the human experience, the light and the darkness that is the human journey.  We get to know death, and loss, challenge and hardship and we learn how to be with it all.  Finally, we do the deep excavating work of Soul Retrieval – diving deep into our own shadows where we have hidden, stuffed, even rejected the parts of our Soul that we (or our society) would not accept….and we bring them forth into the light.  Here, we begin to know who we are, what we need and how we are called to be in the world. Once we get a pretty good handle on this….the Divine Masculine steps in.

The Divine Masculine is the energy within us of provision and protection. The Divine Masculine is the hunter, going out into the world and bringing to us what we need to support the unfolding of our Soul’s purpose.  The Divine Feminine tells the Masculine what is needed, and “he” brings it.  The Divine Masculine is also the gallant knight who stands at the gate to our Soul defending its unfolding.  In this role, the purpose of the Divine Masculine is to set boundaries, to say who and what will be a source of support for our Soul’s mission and purpose and then unapologetically says who or what shall pass through our gate.  (This unapologetic nature is something I have long admired in the men and women that I know who possess this trait!)

As divine expressions of the Love that made us all and seeks to be known in and through us, we deserve nothing less than becoming our true Divine nature – masculine and feminine, and ultimately whole.

Waiting in the Wings

And chomping at the bit….

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. And the time we’ve been waiting for is NOW!

The world as we have known it is on its own journey toward oblivion. That which has been established in fear, power and control, is in the midst of its own collapse.  This system that has proven to be unsustainable is imploding upon itself.

In the midst of this collapse, a new world is already being born. And WE are the ones building it.

This new world is not coming from those who have held the power. It is not coming from anyone or anything that is on the top of a hierarchical ladder.  It is not coming from the Church, government, or any corporation, institution, or entity who has benefitted from a world built on fear, power and control.

The new world is coming out of the masses – the tired, the poor, huddling masses of humanity who have grown tired of war, tired of violence, tired of those systems that are destroying our environment and making it impossible for many to receive their very basic needs for food, clothing, shelter and safety. We are tired.

But out of this deep exhaustion, a collective vision has arisen. The vision of a better world – the world that we know we came here to make real.

We are here. And we are ready.  For the past 20 years (maybe lifetimes), we have been preparing.  We have honed our vision. We have practiced our skills.  We have reached out our hands and our hearts to others who share a similar vision.  And we are right here among you – ready to act as a source of support for those who might fear the death of the old and the time of uncertainty before the new is fully born.

We are here to support those who see a vision for a new world and who are looking for ways to manifest that vision. We are artists, healers, counselors, teachers, advocates and activists. We are praying for the healing of our world and upholding the vision of love that will heal our world.  We are here to support the transformation of our world from one of fear into one of love.  We are not alone and our numbers are large.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for and our time is NOW!

Election 2016: From Division to Oneness

Well, it seems the “powers that be” got what they wanted – a nation that is distracted and divided. It seems no matter how people speak about the outcome of the U.S. presidential election and the transition from one “leader” to another, someone gets pissed off.  On Facebook, for example, I recently mentioned the grief some are feeling over the Obama’s departure, and all hell broke loose.  Then I dared to mention that we are entering into a time of uncertainty and I got hate emails from those who took my comments as an insult against their presidential choice, which was certainly not my intention!

As it turns out, division is a choice. We decide if we are going to hate our fellow Americans simply because of their vote.  We are also the ones who decide if we are offended or insulted by another person who is choosing to share their personal beliefs, perspectives or even their personal experience.  We decide!

lincolnmemorialpixabay

I am choosing NOT to be divided, because, in the immortal words of our sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln, “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” I am also making this choice because division is exactly what the powers that be want.  If we are divided, then we will remain distracted from the evils the “puppet masters” are accomplishing in the world – destroying our environment, putting thousands (millions) of people out of work, depriving people of quality and affordable health care, undermining our educational system, destroying the air that we breathe, the water that we drink and the soil in which we need to grow our crops, raping foreign countries for their cheap labor and oil, while watching those countries destroy their own environments with toxic chemicals, pollution and deforestation.

All of this, they are accomplishing, not for our benefit, but for the sake of their greedy quest for wealth, power and control. We are all suffering because of the actions of the very few (1% of the 1%).  And if they continue on this course, and are able to do so because we are too busy fighting amongst ourselves to see or care about what they are doing, then our entire world will be destroyed.  What they don’t know is that if they destroy the world in their unending quest for power, they will also be destroying themselves (unless they have some space station set up for their escape after they are done destroying this world).

If we want to survive as a species, we HAVE to find a way to look beyond the division brought about by this election and toward unification. Unification does not mean you have to change your beliefs or the policies that you stand for.  Unification means we look beyond our (perceived) differences toward the goals we hold in common:

  • Food on our table.
  • A roof over our head.
  • Clothes on our back.
  • The feeling of being safe.
  • A quality education.
  • Affordable and quality healthcare for ourselves and our families.
  • Meaningful work which supports our need for survival.
  • Loving relationships.
  • Community.
  • Clean water to drink, clean air to breathe, healthy food to nourish our bodies and our souls.
  • The opportunity to enjoy our time on this planet and to enjoy the beauty of the world we were given to care for.

world-pixabay

THESE are the issues that really matter. These are the issues that will determine if we live or die or if we are able to survive as a species. And these are the issues we all care about.  Whether  you call yourself Republican, Democrat, Green Party, Libertarian, Socialist, Communist, Bleeding Heart Liberal, Hippie, Black Panther, or anything in between….our foundational needs and desires are the same.  Focusing on THIS, we will move beyond the distractions, beyond the perceived division and toward the unified effort that will deprive the 1% of the 1% of their power and make OUR WORLD the great planet it was meant to be!

If you are interested in setting aside perceived division and entering into a process of building a new world built on oneness, check out our weekly service Monday evenings at 6:30 pm. Please also check out other programs and services of Authentic Freedom Academy – local gatherings and classes, online courses, one-on-one mentoring services, books and more.

2017: The Year of Self-Care

The most loving thing we can do for those we love is to do what is most loving for ourselves. – Judy Miller, CSJ

2017 is the year of self-care. As the world we have known, and upon which we had placed our hopes and dreams for safety and security, crumbles around us, self-care becomes not only important, but critical.  We cannot support those around us if we have not first taken care of ourselves.  Self-care includes the need for food, clothing and shelter, but even more than this, self-care is about the deepest longing of the Soul for meaning and purpose in our lives.  Experiencing a life of meaning and purpose begins with finding the answers to the following questions:

  • Who am I?
  • Where do I find peace, contentment, fulfillment and joy?
  • What are my gifts and how am I called to use them in the world – for my own fulfillment and for the sake of the betterment of the world.

Authentic Freedom Academy supports you in this journey of self-care through:

  • One-on-one mentoring.
  • The Authentic Freedom Weekly inspirational and formative newsletter.
  • Local and online courses.

In particular, the Authentic Freedom Mastery Program provides you will all the resources you need for answering those questions (supporting you in your journey toward self-actualization) while providing tools to help you move through the inner obstacles, fears and unhealed wounds that might otherwise prevent you from embracing and living the life of your dreams.  Click on the image below to learn more and to enjoy the free preview course.

Blessed Are You Who Believed

As a child, I was granted a vision. The vision was the herald of “the end of the world,” along with the promise that this ending was not set in stone, but could be thwarted, or rather, re-directed through the accomplishment of one simple task.  The task, however, proved not to be so simple.  In the dream, this task was symbolized by the command to “gather your friends, dig up Lincoln’s bones (as in former President), and restore them to their rightful place.”

lincolnmemorialpixabay

As I reflect on this dream in light of what we, as an American culture, and as a world, have undergone in the dreadful year of 2016, the dream makes total sense. If we, as a culture, and a world, continue to stray from the nobility, integrity, authenticity, honesty, and righteousness symbolized by our 16th President, we shall certainly manifest our own demise.  For me, the dream becomes especially potent as we approach the passing of the baton from President Barack Obama, (who for me, more than any recent president has represented the Lincoln archetype) to Donald Trump.  To say that this is a volatile time in our history would be an understatement.  In my lifetime, it has never been more critical that we “gather our friends” and “restore Lincoln’s bones” to their rightful place.

But what does THAT mean? This is where the 40+ years since the vision prove to be helpful, especially those since 1993 when the red brick flew through the air and hit be between the eyeballs – waking me up to my mission and purpose in this life. This mission is nothing short of bringing heaven to earth!  (No small goals here!)

What does THAT mean? In short, it is doing what Jesus did – discovering my own Oneness with the Divine and in that Oneness finding my unique gifts and call, and through these gifts and call, finding meaning and purpose in my life.  Then, showing others how to do the same.  Abraham Maslow called this process self-actualization.  Carl Jung called it individuation.  New-agers call it ascension. By whatever name you call it, the process is the same – asking and then finding the answer to the questions:

  • Who am I?
  • Where do I find that place of inner peace, connection and contentment?
  • What are my gifts and how am I being called to use them?

What does this have to do with Lincoln’s bones and the end of the world? It’s simple really and it is the other part of the vision that has been given to me in adulthood:

world-pixabay

A gathering of friends who have and continue to do for themselves what Jesus did (becoming self-actualized), who know what their gifts are, and who are finding fulfillment in the use of these gifts for their own sake, and (as it relates to Lincoln’s bones) for the sake of the betterment of the world. It is through this gathering of friends that:

  • Hospice will be offered for the dying world.
  • Support will be found for those who are grieving the loss of what they have known and for the anxiety they will be feeling in the face of a great unknown.
  • Prayer will be offered for the sake of healing and wholing our world.
  • Resources will be made available for those who are hurting and in need of healing – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical healing.
  • Rituals will be done for the sake of restoring our world to its natural state in love.
  • Peaceful, non-violent activism will take place to help raise awareness to all the places in our world in need of love and then working toward being that love.
  • Education, formation and empowerment will be made available for those who wish to be a part of birthing a better world – ie: heaven on earth.

For nearly 50 years, this vision has been with me and the weight of this call. For the past 23 years, I have worked diligently toward this call.  I have risked much for the sake of this call and have been called insane for believing such a call.  In the face of what is unfolding in our world, I find that I can no longer question, doubt or challenge this call because I know it to be true.  Whatever the cost, and without a safety net, this is what I am here for and what I am called to do. If we do not work on changing our own hearts from fear to love and if we do not work toward supporting others in doing the same, the consequences are nothing short of our own lives and the lives of our planet…and you don’t need to be a prophet to figure this out.  It is right here before our eyes, if we take the time to look.  We can no longer afford to bury our heads in the sand, unless of course, we are happy to see our world end.

Toward this end, I have put out the clarion call and gathered a group of friends to envision a better world and to dream about how we are called to be loving vehicles for change.  If you feel so-called, join us on Monday, January 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm for our next Gathering of the Tribe. Here you will find community, support, inspiration and empowerment. If you are not in the Oshkosh area, join us by intention, or better yet, call together your own group of friends.

As I pondered this call at the juncture between 2016 and 2017, for myself and for those I have gathered, who should come to me but Mother Mary with the following words:

Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.

I offer these words to all of those I know and love who envision a better world, or rather, who KNOW the world they came to live in and are now being called to create!  Thank you for heeding this call and thank you for all you will do to restore our world to the Love it was meant to be.

Amen! Amen!  Hallelujah! and  Amen!  Amen!  So Mote it Be!

When the Devil Comes to Call

 The closer we move toward our Soul’s purpose, the harder the “devil” works against us. I don’t mean the dude in the red tights with horns carrying a pitchfork who is really the Christian appropriation and demonizing of the pagan fertility god.  I mean the “devil” that resides within all of us.  Another name for this devil is the ego or false self.  Or as identified by our Hebrew ancestors – satan, meaning inner adversary, or from the Latin Lucifer, meaning light-bearer.

There is great wisdom in acknowledging this inner adversary as a light-bearer, as it is most often in our darkness where we discover our light. That is, when we have the courage to face the darkness and be present with and in it so that the light can be revealed.  For the devil isn’t here to tempt us, though tempted we will be, the devil is here to help us grow.

Robert E. Place, "Gnostic Tarot of the Saints"
Robert E. Place, “Gnostic Tarot of the Saints”

Growth doesn’t come without challenge or pain. Ask the sunflower or the oak tree what obstacles they had to move through becoming their most fulfilled and fruitful self.  The same is true for us.  When we awaken from our human slumber and realize that the things “out there” are not providing us with fulfillment, peace or joy, we turn our gaze inward.  As we turn that gaze within, we discover all kinds of unhealed wounds from our past, unacknowledged fears, unrealized dreams.  If we are courageous, (or if life leaves us with no other option) we then embark upon the deep soul work of bringing all these areas of inner darkness to the light so that they can be healed and transformed, finding within this transformation the treasure in the darkness.  This is what brings us toward our soul’s purpose and the life of meaning and fulfillment that we all long for and that our Soul intends for us to experience in this human experiment.  It is ultimately the Soul’s longing to be fulfilled that brings us to this task.

The “devil” in this journey is the inner vehicle that brings all of our fears and unhealed wounds to light. It is our job to recognize these fears as they arise and take responsibility for these fears. Most often, these fears arise in us due to outside triggers.  Something or someone shows up in our path reflecting our fears.  Maybe it is the stack of unpaid bills on your desk.  Maybe it is someone seemingly accomplishing something you wish you could do.  Perhaps it shows up in an infringement of boundaries, or in the form of rejection.  However it shows up, we can know an unhealed wound or unacknowledged fear has been triggered by the reaction we experience in our bodies.  Perhaps the hair stands up on the back of your neck, or your belly constricts, or you feel the hot pain of rage boiling up in you.

Whatever that inner reaction might be….DO NOT ACT. Instead, recognize it for what it is – the devil, Lucifer – showing up to reveal to you your unhealed fears.

Then….NAME the fear for what it is – fear of lack, fear of your own insignificance, fear of powerlessness, fear of not being loved, fear of not being able to express your truth, fear of not knowing your truth, fear of being alone. NAME the demon, and it no longer has power over you.

LOVE that fear. Sit in the discomfort of the fear.  Hold it in love.  In being with it and holding it, the fear gets what it has always needed, to be acknowledged and loved.  And then the fear is transformed and we are now free of that face of our fear.

THANK the fear. Thank Lucifer, the devil, satan, the ego, the false-self, whatever you want to call it, for helping you to grow and helping you to take one step closer to the life you came here to enjoy – one of contentment, joy, fulfillment and love.

Confessions of a Catholic Witch

I have always known I was a witch. For 364 days a year, however, I simply pretended I was not.   Only on Halloween as I donned my black robe, black pointy boots and a black did I feel completely at home.  For the remaining days of the year, I felt like a fake….sort of….for if there is one place where a witch is at home (until she is found out that is), it is in the Catholic Church.

lauricurtsie2

Nowhere else, among all of the western religions, is magic as prevalent as it is within Catholicism. Where else can a man utter the phrase “hocus pocus” (hoc est corpus meum) and turn the simple elements of bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ, or through the imposition of hands release a person from “the devil’s” grip?

The smells, the bells, the little altars everywhere, the haunting strains of Latin chant, the saints to whom I could pray to remedy any struggle or ill, and the votive candles that I lit to solidify my intentions bring my dreams to fruition – all spoke to the witch inside of me who knew the world was magic and that magic could be brought forth in the world. Magic in its truest sense – the Divine working through us in support of the love within that is seeking its place in the world.

The Goddess knew what she was doing when I was born into a devout Catholic family – one that had been Catholic for many generations. She knew what she was doing when she planted me within the single western religion that honors the worship of both a male and a female God. (While Jesus’ mother, Mary, is not officially recognized as a goddess by the Catholic Church, people sure treat her as if she were.  Wouldn’t one have to be a goddess to be the “Mother of God?”)  She knew what she was doing when she placed me within the only western tradition that recognizes the use of amulets (saint medals, scapulars and rosaries), magical potions (holy water and anointing oils), incense and salt for keeping evil at bay.

darkgoddessaltar-jpg

Being a Catholic witch has not been easy, however, which is why I have hid my truth for all these fifty-one years. While I was drawn to everything that speaks magic within the Catholic Church, in being a witch, I also saw through the lies, the deception, and the subtle ways in which the Church manipulated people through fear.  At a very early age, I became aware of the hypocrisy within the Church and was not afraid to call it out.  As an adult, I have maintained this practice and there is a big file in our local Catholic diocese with my name on it to prove it.  Apparently the Church is not interested in those who see through the mask of piety and the illusion of holiness.

It was ultimately this hypocrisy that caused me to leave the Church I once adored – all because I dared to study and practice Reiki. It is apparently ok for a priest to practice laying on of hands in support of a person’s desire for healing, but Goddess-forbid a lay person, OR WORSE, a woman should do the same.  By a Church that claims it is not doing magic in turning bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ, or in healing the sick through the imposition of hands, it was of witchcraft and sorcery I was accused and then condemned for doing “the work of the devil.”  Me thinkest they protesteth too much!

Because I no longer feel welcome in the local Church which has effectively burned me at the stake, I have chosen for the past eight years to fast from the Eucharist. This does not mean, however, that I ever stopped being Catholic – more importantly, a Catholic witch.  I heal the sick through the imposition of hands.  I ordain women and men into their own giftedness (magic) and send them forth into the world where their magic can be shared.  I baptize people into the love that they are and confirm them into being that love in the world.  I hear people’s confessions – and absolve them of their “sin” by helping them to heal the deeper inner fears that cause their addictive and non-loving behaviors.  I sit with people in the pain of grief and prepare them for their death.  I preside over weddings and funerals.  I provide spiritual nourishment through the Eucharist that is within each and every one of us when we allow ourselves to BE the Body and Blood of Christ.

For living out my call in this way, you could call me priest, or priestess, but as it was in the most ancient traditions, and in response to the accusations against me, I prefer to be called a witch.
