Chaos is the Key to Stability: A Virtual Wisdom Council Call

Chaos is the Key to Stability | Virtual Wisdom Council | Sacred Center Mystery School

Let’s face it, life is chaotic. It’s probably always been this way, but right now, we’re feeling it more than ever.

Chaos is actually an essential part of our life on this planet. We’re churned about by all these forces of change and challenge and pain in order to (re)create human reality.

It’s through this process of being tumbled in chaos that we break down the walls that confine us.

At the Sacred Center we talk about conflict as essential to healing. In that same way, chaos is key to creation.

Join Eleanora for this one-hour conversation and meditation that will help you understand how chaos is part of your own creation.

Surrender Into the Moment: A Virtual Wisdom Council Call

surrender into this moment | A Sacred Center Virtual Wisdom Council call with Eleanora Amendolara | healing, meditation, spirituality

When you ask yourself what you’re doing here and you wonder about the purpose of this great adventure of life, you might look back to the glories and pain of your past. You might look to the future with optimism or with fear.

Ultimately, the present moment is all we have. It’s how we inhabit and use each breath that matters.

How can we anchor into the NOW and discover real and lasting health and happiness?

Join master healer, teacher, and alchemist Eleanora Amendolara for this free teaching and meditation call to discuss how surrendering in to this moment is the the way to illuminate your entire reality.

Virtual Wisdom Council: The Stargates of Peru

The mysteries of the Andes are coming home to you

Eleanora is leading a sacred journey to Peru in May. The adventurers who accompany her are calling this the trip of a lifetime, but you don’t have to ride a horse up to a campsite at 15,000 feet to experience the mystery and the majesty of the mountains.

Join Eleanora on June 1 at 7 PM ET for a free Virtual Wisdom Council call. During this teaching and meditation session you will experience the healing energies of the Andean stargates and learn how to make this transformational energy part of your everyday life.

Virtual Wisdom Council: Embrace the Imperfect Self

Forget “Fix What’s Broken”

It’s easy to look at healing as “help me fix what’s broken.” From my years of experience as a healer and teacher, I can lovingly tell you that this is exactly the wrong way to look at it.

Instead, healing is about awakening to your own wholeness. In sessions and classes, I invite you to open your eyes to see that who you are is already enough.

Love the “Perfectly Imperfect”

At a recent Advanced Class we dove deep into this idea. The theme of this class was “I resonate with my imperfect self.”

There’s an idea out there that personal evolution is about becoming something “more” – more spiritual, more successful, more compassionate. In class, we explored how we perceive that there’s something “bad” about our imperfections that we need to grow out of.

Instead, let’s consider creating a new evolutionary goal. It’s not about more. It’s about coming into yourself. It’s about embracing the whole of yourself – especially the imperfections.

At this month’s Virtual Wisdom Council we’ll create a portal using the Chumpi stones* that will help us heal the relationship with our perfectly imperfect selves.

3 Ways to Connect to Your Center

3 Ways to Connect to Your Sacred Center | Machu Picchu | Peru

There’s no single way to your own Sacred Center. Today, I invite you to wander in three potential paths with me. You’ll find that they intermingle and overlap and circle around on themselves… That’s just as it should be because the way to Spirit is never straight and narrow.

Being Seen.

So often, a theme emerges in a week of private healing sessions. Most recently, the work has centered on gazing into the eyes of the Divine and experiencing what it is to see and be seen without expectation or obligation.

It’s a very personal connection – each person sees the expression of the Sacred that is most  meaningful to them, but it’s always in human or animal form. Right now, expressions of the sacred feminine are coming in most strongly, illuminating and resonating through the body, mind, and spirit.

Daily life – and daily problems – are so often related to the very human need to be seen. These healings elevate being seen to a more profound level. It’s an invitation to gaze into your own Soul without judgment or criticism.  It’s devotion without an agenda or a set of “shoulds.”

When you go deep enough to see the divine nature of your own Self, you know what it is to be connected to the heart of divinity itself.  

Being Inspired.

When you can stay open to your everyday experiences and you keep yourself from shutting down due to fear, exhaustion, or sheer information overload, you can experience unlimited inspiration. When you’re in that place of openness, you are truly alive and connected.

For me, I know that daily meditation and communication with the Guides is what allows me to breathe in Truth – the origin of “inspiration.”

It was in a recent meditation that I was instructed about how this is the year to show up and be seen for all of the greatness that wants to shine through you.

This is the time to use your voice. Be heard. Be seen. Be inspired as you inspire those around you.

Being Healed.

“Your Center” isn’t a physical space. It’s a point in infinity from which you live your life, but you could never chart it on a map.  In order to reach that intangible state of consciousness, however, you need to be strongly anchored in your physical body.

When you look into your own Divine Expression and you open your eyes to the inspiration that dances around you at every moment, you can step into the most authentic expression of who you are – stronger, more able to grow and emerge into your own greatness.  

As is the way with multidimensional healing, you heal all facets of your being when you heal one facet. And you must look to the needs of all aspects of who you are in order to address a specific problem.

I want to let you know about three exciting ways to use the Sacred Center’s work to access your own center. There’s a great deal happening right now, but that is just how we want 2016 to begin…

How a Group Meditation Awakens a Personal Healing

Let there be light! Chumpi Illumination | amethyst crystal | Sacred Center Warwick, NY

There are certain things that are simply true when it comes to healing and other spiritual work. One of the most accessible Truths: when you gather to meditate and do the work together, the power is amplified.

In group meditation and healing, you can enter into deeper states of consciousness and experience a greater spiritual connection because you join with others who are focusing their attention in a similar way.

How Group Meditation and Healing Works in a Sacred Center Circle

Each time the Virtual Wisdom Council comes together (or any of the in-person Sacred Center classes, for that matter), profound and lasting healing takes place. Each person on the call, no matter where they are in the western hemisphere, benefits in a tangible, individual way.

Of course, when teacher, healer, and visionary Eleanora Amendolara leads a meditation, she’s not just holding space for participants to take off on private inner journeys. Instead, she opens each session with a teaching that highlights a theme that’s rippling through her community and through the greater world. Then, she channels that energy into a Chumpi Illumination healing that each person can experience at home.

The result? Each person present, whether they’re with us live or listening to the recording later, benefits at a personal level. And, this healing flows from the small group to the greater whole. After all, everything you do for yourself ultimately affects everyone around you.

What does a Chumpi Illumination Meditation look like?

Eleanora holds her free Virtual Wisdom Council calls every six to eight weeks and welcomes her clients and students as well as people who are new to working with the Chumpi stones.

In December 2015, the focus was on how we can apply indigenous wisdom to our hectic daily lives – particularly during the (mostly) joyful chaos of the holidays.

As Eleanora described it, the peoples of Peru don’t walk on the earth, they let the earth hold them. They live without any sense of separation. The mountains, the stars, the waters are an extension of who they are.

Of course, that kind of connection isn’t a natural part of being for us in the West. But, when you learn about the Andean wisdom that informs so much of Eleanora’s Mystery School teachings, the goal isn’t to appropriate another culture or to pretend that you can move through life with all the attitudes of a Peruvian mountain dweller.

Instead, Eleanora opens a window on the views of the Q’ero, the Quechua, and other mountain people to show us how we might see the “typical” parts of our own lives in a new way – through interrelation rather than ego.

How the Chumpi Stones Help Reframe Your Challenges

“To heal someone is to facilitate their awakening | Sacred Center | Eleanora AmendolaraAnd so, grounded by the Peruvian people’s connection with the earth and supported by this new perspective, Eleanora described how the Chumpis that would help us embody this wisdom. (For more about how the Chumpis work in Chumpi Illumination, click here.)

Using muscle testing – an integral part of Chumpi Illumination – Eleanora determined the collective needs of this group. There were three parts for everyone to experience and work through:

  1. Change shoulds
  2. Discover you have choices
  3. Let yourself be the light

These themes were broad, but they had clear resonance for everyone in the circle. And, as a result of the healing that Eleanora transmitted through the healing, the group released great waves of sadness.

The message for everyone:

We are diamonds in the rough and we are called to shine brighter and brighter.

Shine your Light strongly. Be carried by the light in the darkness.

Even if you were not with us on December 10, you can still receive all the benefits of this healing. Access the recording for this call and all previous Virtual Wisdom Councils. You’ll also be invited to future free events. We’d love to have you with us, strengthening our collective intention and deepening the shared healing.

Virtual Wisdom Council: Practical Wisdom from the Andean Indigenous Peoples

Indigenous women of Peru | Sacred Center Peru Journey

I have to fight the traffic to get to the mall.
How am I going to cook a festive holiday meal and honor everyone’s food allergies and dietary restrictions?
In this rush to celebrate the holidays, there’s no time for us to remember what all this celebrating is for.

It’s time to find a new way to connect to what matters this holiday season.

In the month of December, almost everyone in America – and probably everyone with a “western” mindset – feels overwhelmed and more than a little disconnected.

When you get caught between “too much” and “not enough,” it can feel almost impossible to tune into what’s really important to you.

On Thursday, December 10 at 7 PM ET Eleanora is hosting a special Virtual Wisdom Council Call.

This collective time of peace and joy is something we all can revel in. It’s a time of great celebration of the light that shines even as the days grow darker. How do we shift our rhythms and rituals to mirror the joyful, authentic energy of the season?

This teaching and meditation session will give you a chance to step away from everything the holidays are “supposed” to be about. You’ll enter a space where you can tune into your own human experience in a very different way.

Learn from the ways of the Indigenous People and apply the teachings to the life you’re living right now

During this free Virtual Wisdom call, Eleanora will describe how the indigenous peoples of the Andes – including the legendary Q’ero community –  move through life without being driven by ego.

You’ll learn about their relationship with the earth and the meaning they find in the stars.

Most importantly, you’ll learn how you can make certain aspects of the Andean Indigenous approach to living and giving your own.

Not because you want to appropriate another culture. Not because you’re pretending that you can move through Western life with all the attitudes of a Peruvian mountain dweller. Not because their ways are “better” than yours.

| Cusco Peru | Sacred Center Healing |Chumpi Illumination | Eleanora AmendolaraLearn how to weave these ancient teachings into contemporary life in order to strengthen your connection to the here and now. Discover how you can enter the dance between the mountains, stars, rivers and plants – and realize how that takes all the stress out of holiday shopping!

React or Respond: Which approach creates your reality?

React or Respond: Which approach creates your reality?

You feel as if you have lost your ability to choose your own way…

It’s no wonder. Between the media bombardment and constant impressions from the outside world, the mind is paralyzed by the all the information and choices offered out there.  

We’re barraged with advice on how to eat, parent, meditate, detox, exercise. Everywhere you look, there’s advice on how to live.

So much of this advice is well meaning and can actually help you when you mindfully apply it to your own experiences, but how do you integrate these ideas and still hold on to who you are and what you need?

Create Your Own Song

If I had one wish for you, it would be that you can use all of the tools and concepts out there to write your own song.

It’s easier said than done, I know, but it begins with how you receive the input that comes your way. It begins when you understand the difference between emotions and feelings.

Let me put that another way: I want you to be able to recognize when you’re reacting and when you’re responding to a situation.

Emotions and feelings, reactions and responses — there’s a big difference between them

 

Emotions and reactivity go hand-in-hand. Both are historical. When you’re reacting with emotion, you’re influenced by what you remember from the past instead of what is actually happening in the present moment.

When you’re trapped in an emotional response, fear and old programming heavily influence how you behave.

Feelings and responses, on the other hand, are both transitory. Feelings can pass through you like water – they don’t leave a mark.

When you respond to a situation, you are fully in the experience itself. Your old stories and memories won’t derail you in the present moment.

How can you learn to respond rather than react?

 

This advice is almost seems to simple to follow – but then, most of the deepest wisdom is like that.

In order to train yourself to respond rather than react you simply need to slow it down.

The difference between a reaction and a response is found in two deep breaths.

While you fill your lungs and press the virtual pause button, you are making a conscious choice about how to be in the situation. You are determining how to respond rather than succumbing to an unconscious reaction.

Enough words: experience it!

 

In this post, it sounds like I am recommending that you become more mindful. That’s exactly what I’m doing – but I don’t want you to depend on your mind to make it all happen.

An over-reliance on the mind is exactly what keeps us from simply feeling things and moving on. After all, all the memories and stories that keep you trapped in reactivity live inside your head. Trying to think your way out of that trap isn’t going to work.

Instead, as a healer who seeks to integrate the vibrations of individual human cells with the resonance of the highest spiritual frequencies, I want you to create your own song using every tool in your physical, mental, and spiritual toolbox.

In a recent Virtual Wisdom Council teaching, we explored all of these ideas and then we entered a shared meditative space to tap into the power of the body, mind, and spirit. The goal was to really experience what it means to shift out of reactivity and into healthy, grounded responsiveness.

I invite you to listen to the recording and discover how you can embody this wisdom.

When you’ve registered to hear the Transcending Reactivity call, you’ll also get access to past and future Virtual Wisdom Council events (for free!).
