I have asked a wonderful friend of mine to write a guest post today, because what she has to offer is so in sync with all that I feel about vibrational health and healing.
Alexa Thorvalson, Evolutionary Astrologist
She and I totally see eye-to-eye on how physical symptoms and disease are a messenger of a deeper truth… looking at physical illness as a gift, a signal from our bodies that point us in the direction of growth, of change… of an inner need that will strengthen us as we listen.
Ultimately, health is about restoring a positive energy flow to our bodies, our souls.
No one understands this better then my friend Aleka. Aleka takes this understanding and goes one step further with it… looking at our karmic energy and what we come into this lifetime to accomplish and heal. Sometimes, this energy takes the form of a disease vibration, and Aleka can provide valuable insight into the big *why* — why is this happening? Why me? Why now?
This is a two part series, so I’m going to let Aleka take it from here… in this first post, she introduces herself and what she does. Next Wednesday, head back here to see her post on how karma directly influences our health.
Even better, Aleka is giving away one free reading to a lucky reader, a $70 value. It doesn’t matter where in the world you live, Aleka can do sessions in her office or over the phone, so please enter! To enter the drawing for the free reading, just leave a comment at the end of this post. To double your chances, come back and leave a comment after next Wednesdays post as well. Good luck, she can change your life! xoxo
Sometimes you find your calling but most times I think it finds you. Often it’s the very thing that frightens us, that one thing that we â€œcould never doâ€, that we must. My journey has been that I have always wanted things to make sense in a logical, linear way. All the while, I felt pulled to what was abstract, strange, dare I say even magical? Sure, as a kid I got the message I was a bit weird as I overheard the murmurs. Things like â€œnot sure if she knows fact from fictionâ€and she “just talks way to much”. Well meaning teachers wrote â€œshe has a very vivid imaginationâ€ and “has a hard time keeping her hands to herself” and left it at that. I had a burning desire to touch others, to help others, to comfort, and support those I knew to be in pain in a way I couldn’t articulate or openly express but felt in my very core. I figured out it was easier to agree than question and was more accepted to “figure out” than “feel”. So I tried to ignore my intuitive side. I tried hard. I shelved the part that saw light dancing around people or animals and tried to ignore what I knew all along to be truth.
Long path made shorter …and here I find myself pulled back onto this path I tried so hard to ignore. If I were being honest I would say even as I tried to push it away the whispers were always in the wind, but my fear, my lack of faith, my utter mistrust of myself distracted me. So often we deny that little voice. Those soft nudges of synchronicities. We reason out, ignore, or medicate the painful lessons, dis’ eases, and maladies that are there to teach us, to motivate us, and to remind ourselves we are still very much alive. We fear the truth about ourselves. We fear what would happen if we were indeed whole.
Our Greatest Fear
it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
So now people ask me what I do and I find myself at a loss for words. I guess in broad terms I help people understand themselves in deeper way. What that looks like in form is that I am a nutritional counselor/ massage therapist/ evolutionary astrologer. A bit of a rationalist turned reluctant mystic to be honest. I practice a new type of astrology. One that seems to shadow a evolution in our collective conscious thought. This new astrology has different names like evolutionary astrology, counseling astrology, and psychological astrology. Basically, It is just one tool I use to define your journey of empowering your soul to manifest in ways that feed your creativity, your life force, your truest path. It can bring a vocabulary, an articulation, a coherence to what is difficult to define with our logical mind within ourselves. It can help us to acknowledge our behaviors, choices, patterns, fears, illnesses in a way that we can take responsibility for being co-creators of our life circumstances.
This is a bit about me and my journey and what I do. It is my goal to bring some understanding and urgency about how important it is to our very health, and our vitality to be in alignment on a path of sacred creativity. Why it is so critical to let our soul sing and what happens when we get off track. How our soul speaks to us through our bodies or life circumstances to keep us on a journey of empowerment. No matter how hard we may try to ignore it.
