The Voice of Authenticity

By Natasha Botkin 

Have you heard the whispers in the air, the lull of the moon, the dance of the waves…

One thing is for sure, 2016 will not allow you to hide, procrastinate and ignore.  The energy vibes are calling, whispering, saying your truth and the more that you try to ignore or hide, the stronger the vibes may become.  

It is like 2016 is standing up and saying enough, enough with your shenanghans.  I am here in the now; now follow me.  

The old adage of fake it until you make it, no longer rings true.  The toll of the bell, rings of love, of truth, of light.  

Now, this is not to say, that there will be those, who insist on “their way” with the idea of “free will.”  I am here to gently emphasize that this is a 9 year in numerology, and the karmic energies are here to remind you; good or bad, but karma would like your attention and this will not sulk away, as it would in the past.  

Here are a few ways to show up in an authentic manner, which can calm the storm of the lesson if you allow. 

Ask yourself are you authentically expressing:

  1. A feeling 
  2. An emotion (allowing yourself to feel this emotion)   Do not ignore it, this will tighten its grip- Breathe in and out as the emotion happens.
  3. A thought
  4. Is this a feeling, emotion or thought? 
  5. Where did the feeling, emotion or thought originate from? Pay careful attention to the signs that your emotional body is sending to your etheric body (i.e.  is your chest tight- then breath into your heart center and allow the emotion to flow in and out of you-almost like an ocean wave). 
  6. Is this actually a belief?  What is the illusion that you are trying to convince yourself as your truth?

The old adage of fake it til your make it, is an old adage, pattern and belief; the awakened conscious is no longer tolerant of these shenanghans.  And like an alligator these are bubbling up to the surface.  

                                                          

 “Toil, toil, toil and trouble….” bubble, bubble bubble.

Place those woes in a pink bubble.  Take a deep breath, breath the woe into the pink bubble and gentle blow this away.  As the pink bubble leaves you, you may ask an angel to take it from you and/or request for them to help you pop it.    pink bubble

Awwww, this feels so much lighter, so much better.

May you feel light and love.

Enriching African Violets

By  Natasha Botkin 

African Violet Single

I love to help you naturally clear away negative energy.

To some, the african violet is known to be a fussy plant, and many are nervous to attempt to grow this in their homes.  This may cause one to miss out on their special magical qualities.

How to care for an African Violet: 

  • This plant requires keeping the soil moist to dry.growing-african-violets-L-Jrwnt_
  • To encourage blooming please allow the soil around the roots to dry out before watering.
  • It is more benefical to water from the bottom with room temperature water; as this helps to avoid getting water on the leaves that can cause spotting damage.
  • The flowering plant requires moderate to bright light, some people will have special lighting units just for their african violet.

This may seem like a bunch of work.  The benefits far outweigh the care of the plant.

African Violet Cleansing Benefits: 

This beautiful plant and flower is a mega powerhouse in the form of cleansing one’s space.

Clearing of Neagtive Energies:

They are able to clear away the old, heavy energies that may weigh one down.  Especially an empath.  In any space this sweet beauty will powerfully eliminate those energies. Thus, having this in your home or office will help reduce the negative vibes that may be around.  No one will even be aware, and believe this to just be a beautiful flowering plant.

They are also incredible at transmuting the lower energies into a higher vibration.

Eliminating the Old: 

The presence of an african violet can help release the old, creating an easier transition.  The african violet says, “Please ask me to help you clear away your old nuiances and allow space for the new to take place.”

Bad Dreams and/or Nightmares: 

If you are one to have nightmares or bad dreams, place this near your bedside.  It will help to erase these from you.  Or a child who may have difficulty with sleeping, place this in their rooms and the fear of things that go bump in the night shall lessen.

Archeangel Qualities: 

Not only are the plants and flowers a great way to clear negative energies, this plant/flower also works with Archeangels.

Arachangel Michael who is known as -he who is like God, has a way to create releasing and clearing.  If you request the help of the african violet along with Archeangel Michael’s sword, this is a powerful combination. He will cut away the negative vibes and energies.  After he clears away the negative energies, ask Archeangel Michael, “Dear Archeangel Michael please place a protective divine white light all around me.”  Breath in 3 counts, hold for 3 counts and breath out for 3 counts, and so it is.  The african violet helps to continue to cleanse the area around one.

Archeangel Raphel is an angel of healing-one who heals God’s souls. Requesting his presence along with the afriacn violet can help the healing of a concerned ailment.  He is associated with the color green, and green sparkles are a sign that he is present.

Metatron is not an archeangel, but a human known in the form of a prophet and for his Merkaba cube.  This can help in the clearing of lower energies, and when utilizing Metatron’s gifts one may see pink and green lights.

Associated Chakras: 

The Third Eye and Crown chakras are associated with the african violet.  This dazzling plant can help get rid of any negative, old, heavy energies that are not allowing one to utilize these chakras.

If you feel that these chakras are blocked, sit near an african violet and ask the flowering or non-flowering beauty to help you remove that which is blocking.

Pets: 

Please be aware that sometimes cats like to nibble on this plant, and this is not good as ingesting the leaves is posinous.

 

May you enjoy the incredible grace that this flowering plant bestows upon us in a most natural manner. 

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings

Ways to Attract Positive Energy Into One’s Home

by Natasha Botkin 

Positive energy flow hand

In my last blog, I spoke of ways to clear energies.  You have cleared the energies.  Now what?

  • One of the biggest ways to increase positive energy in one’s home is accepting and loving one’s self.  This not only raises the vibrational energies of your body, mind and soul, but also of your surrounding.  After all, we are energy beings having a human experience and we are what we live.
  • Be-eee Happy.  If you are living with or have lower negative vibrational energies.  This will be sent to your living environment as well.  It is like a never-ending vortex of negative energies.
  • Laugh and laugh often.  Laughter is a way to immediately raise vibrational energies into a positive state of being.
  • Provide greenery.  I do not mean, faux plants.  Bring forth living plants.  This will raise the energies and also clear the air on a routine basis.  A win-win for all.
  • Fresh flowers.  I have a bubble tea shop that I enjoy.  They get so excited when I stop by with my flowers from the farmer’s market.  Recently, I brought them flowers and the space immediately felt more energetic and their energies went through the roof with happiness.
  • Candles are a wonderful way to decrease negative energies while increasing positive energies at the same time.  The aroma of a candle is a bonus.  Many people also enjoy using Himalayan Salt Candle holders or lights.  This both clears and add energies.
  • Space is important.  Make sure that you have enough open space for you to move around.  It just may be time to declutter.  Clutter takes up space and creates a negative vibe.  One may wish to enjoy Feng Shui to help understand the free flow of a space.
  • Color is a great way to increase energy, ambiance and such.  Even if you enjoy a crisp white wall, a beautiful pink throw pillow can jazz up your sofa while increasing a positive flow of energy.
  • Open those blinds, window coverings.  Let the light in.  This will bring forth a warming moment and help you to feel sunny all over.
  • If you are able open up the windows and doors.  Mother gaia provides the most magical way to naturally clear away negative energies and allow the transference of fresh air, movement and positive energies.
  • Crystals are a natural way to clear and cleanse energy as well as increase vibrational energy.  Just be sure to clear your crystal with a dry sea salt bath, a water sea salt bath or the full moon.  (Please check and make sure that you have crystals that can handle a sea salt water bath, not all can and may disintegrate).
  • Spray your residence with a natural essential oil spray.  positive energy positive results
  • An old tradition is to place bowls of sea salt around the home; once you have left this out for the day, toss the used sea salt crystals in the garbage (Be sure to immediately take out the garbage, because one does not wish to undo what one just cleared).
  • Enjoy music.  Music does soothe the soul and will help raise the vibrations.  Now this is a peaceful, calm music; some music even if you love it, does not add positive energy.
  • Depending on the time of year, a fire in a fireplace or woodstove.  This helps to clear out the negatives, warm the home and bring forth new energies.
  • A water feature can also clear the air at the same time as adding positive energies.

I hope that you enjoy these ideas.  Happy raising the vibrational energy of your residence!

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Dance of the Soul

By Natasha Botkin 

Colorful music notes

Something that I enjoy is popping my ear buds in my ears, select my tunes and dance away.  Or turn up the tunes as I drive along, still dancing away.  Yep, I get those looks, ah but who cares.  Music has always been an important part of my soul.  If I did not have music, this esoteric body would be quite unhappy.

My children know to watch out when they see me dancing through the house.  A favorite spot is the kitchen, dancing away while preparing a meal, cleaning up or washing dishes.   In my house, it is not me who says “Turn that music down,” but rather usually my youngest.  Mr. Serious, “Why did I get the mom who sings all the time, dances and I have to ask her to turn down her music?”  Yes, he is a hypocritical comedian.  Because he can be just as loud, if not louder.

Dancing is a way for a happy soul to pour forth love and exuding joy. Dancing helps to remove negative vibes, energies and such that you may have encompassed along your path.

Do you have to be the best, most eloquent dancer?  No way!  Just turn on your genre of music and allow the soul to flow old-lady-wheel-chair-ballerinathrough the vibes.  There is no right or wrong way.  Now that does not mean, those who are professional trained should be disregarded.  Because, I do have dance training from years ago.  Instead this is for a non-trained dancer afraid of what they may look like.  The old adage, “dance as if no one is watching,” is truth. Enjoy yourself!  Your soul will thank you!

Recently, a song has played over and over on my playlist.  Me enjoying the tunes.  Then one day out of no where, up pops a beautiful dancer in this YouTube video.  May you enjoy this treat.

Much love and light!

Magical Blessings, Natasha

Peaceful Ascension

By Natasha Botkin 

Recently as I drove down the road watching commuters battling out for a space in the line of traffic, I sat back and thought why?  Why does one cram themselves into a line that does not go much further than one car length.  This brought me back to a conversation with my spiritual teacher.  Steer the course, do not ver to the left or right.  A song plays over the speakers, the lyrics of a change, a battle, of peace….

Which brought me back to a moment, a moment of an exchange with a wise woman.  A stranger really to me, all of my life, I have people stop and tell me their life stories.  My children often asking why would a stranger tell me that?  I have just accepted that people come to me to tell their stories.  Sometimes, they need a wise voice of innate wisdom to shine forward without judgement, without conviction, a person to listen, to help them release this.  Satinglass spiral

This lady looked at me and said, “Wow an ascended one, I’ve never met one in person before and you look nothing like I would think an ascended one should look like.”  I remember looking at her and wondering, but not saying anything, as I knew she had a story that she would share; and what a beautiful story it was.  It wasn’t the story; it was what she said, this was years ago; “ascended, ascension; isn’t for  the faint of heart and it will take much energy, love and light dear one, be prepared as it will come and you will easily glide up the spiral.” 

At the time, I was preparing for a major divorce and custody battle.  Little did I know that was much easier than ascension.  My spiritual teacher will gently guide me, and yet the human psyche at first wanted the ego to rage, bark and scream.  Almost like a two-year old not being allowed to have a cookie before dinner.  Yet, this is going to happen, go with grace and it will come with ease.  Some has been filled full of ease, and some would be easier to deal with a two-year old having a tantrum.

Come back to peace, love and light.  In steps the next wise woman, I am walking in the store and ran right into her.  She remarks, “Darlin, get your head out of the clouds.”  I look her, smile and say,“Ha clouds, that too easy, try galactic travel or what dimension did I float off to, traversing the mundane of today’s humanistic mess.”  She smiled and replies, “Ascension is not easy, especially in the modern ways.  You do not look like one, so many may not even realize. It’s not the appearance; it’s the light, the love that matters.” 

I am a special education, so I am a pro at what is called “wait time.”  Well, I am a pro with others, “wait time,”  me well in truth, I am not usually a slow learner, and  yet, may need an accelerated IEP to slow my horses, so to speak. (As my spiritual teacher often says, “Dear the Aries in you.”)   I look at her and wait, she smiles a big grin and says, “Dear one, you are doing much better than you give yourself credit for; however patience is necessary. The biggest patience that you need is your own transformation to ascension. you are almost across that bridge to a major level up, be patient.  Years ago, you were told that you do not look like an ascended one, in truth, you’re a more modern version. Your spiritual mentor has recently given you knowledge of the changes that will come.”  Then she smiles and says, “Be Kind, Rewind,” and instance is gone, I look around the aisle and do not see her.

Slowly, I approach the checkout; barely able to speak to anyone, and yet like moths to the light people dance around me.  I pay for my items and sit in my vehicle.  No thoughts, nothing, just sit and allow the wisdom that was also downloaded settle and absorb into my light.

The latest wise woman, was the same week as recent the crystal light activation January 2015, the full moon and just after the winter solstice.  It has taken me a bit to settle into the next step.  One moment, I am walking in the divine feminine goddess of innate wisdom that heralds the divine wisdom of love and light; and the next I am submerged in a hot bath trying to release the negative energies that seems to want to invade my aura.

And in truth, I do not wear flowy robes, probably never will. I am more of a mover. singer, dancer with the heart of a youth filled full of love and light. Hence the comment “Be Kind, Rewind.” Go back to my heart, my joy, my peaceful grace.  One thing that has come about with the crystal light activation is peace, harmony and joy.  We need much more of it.  If ya feel like dancing, dance; if you feel like singing, sing.  Life is to be lived and enjoyed with a beauty that is deep within us all.

Magical Blessings of love and light!

Crystal Light Activation

by Natasha  Botkin 

Crystal Light Elder

January 3,2015, there was a crystal light activation that entered Earth’s atmosphere.  Those who can see, hear, feel at first wondered what had happened.  We just celebrated the new year, preparing for the full moon and what is happening.  My ascension and sensitivity went to an extreme.  I felt like I had been literally punched, my face, my jaw, my skull ached; the masculine seeping, weeping as it leaving me.

Here comes the full moon, the intensity settled, yet I could feel something brewing just underneath.  My vibrational manner changed.  I cried at a drop of a hat, worst of all unable to shield my empath ways, taking on and absorbing so many negative energies.  Others around me who are also sensitive were also affected, many of these individuals crying, unsure as to why.   The most difficult moments, how do I explain this unknown, especially when the unknown are children?

I felt my heart space expand and grow even more.  People would say,”Did you know that your crystal is glowing” or they would look away not wanting to admit to what they just witnessed.  My heart had the most tremendously, wonderful energy pulsing through.  The harmonics grew, those who have ascended are growing, opening, preparing for the next wave.  This is just the beginning to a new wave, a new way, more heart, more grace, more love, more light, more peace.  Crystal light heart

If you are one of those who are effected, please seek solace from those who can and will support you.  This is absolutely beautiful, and necessary; yet it can leave one overwhelmed. Enjoy something that brings you joy.

Much love and light to you!

Pinkslip Meanness

 

By Natasha Botkin 

Recently, I have found myself in the middle of multiple mean girl (women) episodes. As one would clear, another one would step in. My reaction is what in the heck?  God, I need help with this one, please help.   My BeLoved would always say, “You do not have a mean bone in your body” as he would scoop me into his arms and whisper “shhh my sweet girl.” There I would stay in his loving arms as if a bubble would encase us and the world would just melt away, as I would say, “Why are people so mean…”

With his unexpected departure to parts unknown, I have not held that ability and muster this on my own.  Some days are more successful than others.  There are days where I stare blank eyed in shock; how could one be so mean.  I return to a memory that my BeLoved would voice to me, “My Love, the world is mean and dark, sweet girl stay in your happy place.” 

10633973_1029599967066068_6866250558668165889_oTry as I might, it has come round circle and even though I am not allowing these mean ladies to harm or hurt me, I cannot take away that they refuse to stop their poor behaviors.  In human form , I have a background in human behaviors and the essence of psychology 101 is out word projection.  They are projecting onto me, what is truly trapped in them; this has nothing to do with me.  The falsehood that they believe is that they are guiding me, my higher self is patient and yet Amel stepped up and has said enough, no more.  “These ladies need truth and you tried, you cannot help someone who does not wish to hear or see what you present. You need peace; allow yourself joy and love.” 

raven keyAfter a tenacious windstorm, I found myself outside looking at the damage.  I look up and WOW!  There are approximately 100+ ravens on the roof of the house, garage, telephone wires and in a neighbor’s tree.  They are all speaking at once.  I cannot hear a word they say.  A text comes through,”Haven’t you paid every time.” A female bluejay flies into the chattering ravens and rests near me, I sit down and wait.  She says,” Sweet girl.”  I feel the wolf medicine inside me stir, the ravens are excited.  The next text is a from a dear friend; there is an image and under the image is “what is on my tile…”  I glance and know; it’s my BeLoved, he is in human form with a wolf pelt.  He knew that I would receive his message this way as the ravens are so excited to feel his wolf medicine and in their exctiement; it is difficult to hear the message. WolfRavenI smile and text back that it is my BeLoved, and what are you doing today? I had planned on attending another event, the warning was to not go.  As soon as I texted what are you doing today, wanna go to a fun destination.  The ravens grew quiet, the bluejay sat and flapped her wings.  My friend texted back that she’d love to go.  Most of the ravens flew away, the bluejay stayed, and I hear “sweet girl.”

I allow the tears to flow, and say, “why do others have to be so mean? What lesson am I to learn?”  Amel steps in, “This is not for you, the lesson was to walk away and just be. If they have issues, it is their falsehood that they are projecting onto you, it’s far easier to blame another than accept what is true.  Natasha, you are truth and not everyone can handle that; it’s not you, it’s them.”   The female bluejay opens her wings and I allow her love to surround me; a love that I knew was from a distance; my BeLoved had been near, female bluejayII“my sweet girl….” 

In essence and one of my favorite sayings, “Treat others the way that you wish to be treated.”.

Much Love and Light

Magical Blessings
