Root Chakra Meditation for Intense Times

I have felt so many emotions since this election, I have been gathering my words and strength before reaching out. I have needed to get clear and move past my personal fears before doing so.

I am the daughter of immigrants.

I am a woman.

I am a woman of color.

I am a woman in love with another woman.

As a child, my mother told me many stories of oppression growing up in Argentina under the rule of the Perón’s. After my parents immigrated to the states, we watched from afar as the “dirty war” in the 70’s “disappeared” thousands of people. It was very painful and scary.

I have created a meditation that helps us energetically understand why people like myself feel concerned about the future of this country. Let’s love and support each other during these intense times.

I am sharing 3 awesome things:

My partner and business advisor, Bri Condon, has created special offerings for Lotus Lantern. Bri has helped me move past many of my personal upper limit problems. She has been providing these services to many of my clients. Their feedback has been tremendous! She’s an incredible coach and offers business consultation, supervision and coaching for parents of adolescents. Click here and scroll down to learn more here.

The amazing artist Roxanne Jackson has started a powerful movement! It’s a Nasty Woman art exhibit. Learn more here.

How to Create an Intentional Blessing

Being a human is hard and sometimes earth can seem like a scary and unwelcoming place. There have been so many instances in my life when I have felt stuck and terrified. I’ve had to hold on and wait for clarity before I could take action.

FYI: I am TERRIBLE at waiting! Having to sit present and still in difficult circumstances, is like having to sit on a hot stove; it is epicly painful.

The thing that saves me: Intentional prayers and blessings!

What is it? A blessing is a moment to root and ground. It’s a communion or conversation between you, your higher-self and the divine. It’s like asking to see the manager when you’ve had a terrible customer service experience. It’s a ritual that gets your internal energy moving again. It’s also a way to withdraw your energy from chaos and re-invest it with a positive charge into a new direction.

When do I do this?

When The Walls Are Closing In: When I am contracted in fear and too scared to expand into my power. I feel stuck on one side of the river and am frantically trying to find the bridge to the other side. wallsareclosingin

Nightmares: When I wake from a nightmare that seems so real I can’t catch my breath.

Dinner time: Showing gratitude and blessing food restores the vital energy of the food. When we do this we are intentioning that anything that could be harmful be released from the food before we take it in; energetically matching our body.

Golden Suns are little prayers: Check out this video (start at the 4:30 mark)

When you call your life-force energy back to yourself, you have the power to make a sweet blessing before you incorporate that energy back. Think of it like a power boost that gives you the momentum you need when you can’t muster any willfulness.

Where can you find blessings? John O’Donohue’s has a wonderful book called: To Bless The Space Between Us. This is a great start. You can also create your own blessings!

Learn how to right now! Do this freestyle writing exercise to create a personal blessing. Just let the information come without judgement onto the paper.

Questions:

What do I give myself permission to release?

If I release these things what freedoms do I gain?

What can I forgive myself for?

What do I intentionally want to bring to myself and into my life?

Then, write in some gratitude for the lessons learned.

IMPORTANT:

Always ask for highest good. You can always ask for exactly what you want. However, at the end of the day; you only want for the highest good for yourself and others. This is the do no harm part.

Who are you calling upon for assistance? Here are a list of some safe healers to call upon.

The Great Mother and the Great Father

God or Divine Source

Your Higher Self

Archangels

Ganesha (remover of obstacles)

Guardians of Light

Benevolent Ancestors

FINALLY, blend all of this yumminess together to create a beautiful personalized mantra, prayer or blessings. You are powerful. The alchemy of blending your own words is a wonderful treat! Don’t be shy, give it a try.

Retreat: Bridge Between Two Worlds

Yippie! I have been dreaming about this for 3 years. Now, I finally get to co-facilitate a retreat at Five Pines Lodge in Sisters, Oregon! Oct 15th and 16th, 2016.

Here is the feeling behind this: I want to teach you stuff, but I also want to help you REST. (I don’t think you should be exhausted from a workshop, you should leave rested and re-inspired.) Our active learning day will be short and sweet from 9am til about 2pm. Lucky you, because Five Pines houses the AMAZING Shibui Spa, Sisters Movie Theater, Three Creeks Brewing and walking trails in the FOREST.

So we will PLAY during the morning and afternoon, then you can design your own rituals of self-care in your plentiful free-time.

Hosting this retreat is a big emotional step for me. I am doing a retreat for YOU, in a place that makes MY heart sing and we get to meditate and do energy work, encircled by magic. Our private classroom overlooks a meadow and creek. We have a big stone fireplace and beauty abounds. I get to feed you lunch and tea! How cool is that? Are you enticed? Are you curious? Want to learn more? THEN CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

PLUS: I get to co-facilitate this retreat with Bri Condon of Alchemy Consulting, Bri brings experiential work and storytelling to this retreat. She has a badass work ethic and the ability to inspire and play hard.

You will grow and heal from the combination of my meditation, energy tools and her action, play and storytelling style. I hope you will join us!

Blessings, Liliana

The New Loyalty

“You have heard that you must ‘let go’ of surging emotions, feelings, and sensations, but they will let go of you when you call off the war. Nothing has gone wrong and no mistake has been made. There is primordial rest in the core of the fire. It is not an error that you have been born as a sensitive human being with a raw, open heart. Send your awareness into the center and watch as the nature of all form reveals as light. You need not fix your vulnerability or cover up your tenderness any longer. For it is through your sensitivity that love will come alive here, and erupt in the four directions.” — Matt Licata

Alethea Dalton High Fidelity Organizing

Alethea Dalton
High Fidelity Organizing

My divorce became final last month! I decided to give myself the gift of a Wholistic Organizer. What the heck is that you ask? That’s a magical woman named Alethea Dalton. She comes to your house and makes it beautiful and functional FAST! This woman is amazing and you need to know more about her. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t need this treatment. In 3 hours she transformed my entire kitchen. I love to cook, but now I LOVE to cook! This chick put everything in the exact right place. I didn’t even know how much I needed this until I was dancing with joy in my kitchen.

Alethea explained to me that I have spent many years being loyal to someone else’s needs
and expectations (my ex) but that now I had the freedom to express a loyalty to myself. Her business, High Fidelity Organizing, blossomed out of the belief in nurturing the highest loyalty to oneself.

From Alethea:

What: One room Make-Over (3 – hour session )

I will always start with what you have available in your home, no need to purchase any new furniture or decor.
No need to prep or change or clean anything.
I will bring my organizing toolkit and you will bring your readiness for change.
Picture the life you love… now let’s create it in the essence of every space.

Cost Options:

Co-Create with Me: $165.00 (You stay and participate in the process of transformation. This is a great choice if you want to have a little more oversight with the process and keep costs down. )

Hand Over the Reins: $225.00 (To busy to stay, gotta get the kids to camp and just want the room to have a treatment? This is the package for you. Keep in mind I will need your presence 15 min before and after the session.)

Email with a description of your needs and I will get back to you within 48 hours.

I Need Room To Shine MY Light

I want to share a story with you about my daughter. Her dad decided to take her to explore the caves near our home.

My daughter was delighted to be given her very own kid-sized lantern. She was absolutely fearless, venturing into the deep dark cave with him trailing behind her.

The strangers that followed behind my daughter and her dad soon began to catch up and light the way ahead of her.

[bctt tweet=”What she loved so dearly, was feeling the power of her light on the dark path.”]

She relished in the impact of the light transforming the dark. My daughter is really shy. The kind of kid that gets mute when anyone other than family speaks to her.

Her dad was in total shock when she began yelling a loud, echoey plea to all the strangers in the cave. It was a firm, “EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME!” and when she had won their startled attention, she declared, “I need room to shine MY light.”

So, this is me giving you permission to ask for room to shine your light.

If she can do it, you can do it.

Where in your life are you feeling oppressed, overwhelmed, closed in? Can you ask for space? Take some time alone? What would help you focus on the light within you?

Shine your light bright,

— Liliana

What To Do When Your Back Is Against The Wall

I love to plan! I love to know what’s coming next.

Shit! Life is not like that. That uncomfortable place between death and rebirth makes me crazy sometimes. I need to move forward, but I don’t understand what’s next. I need to release the anxiety. Releasing it, will open me to the answer and how to trust, trust, trust.

I made this visualization for anyone who is currently feeling this. Check it out and share it! 

It opens me up to call my angels for help, just like in this Star Wars scene when they call C3PO for HELP.
