A Funny Way to Relaxation

by Natasha Botkin

Triangle HeartRelaxing, has been a foreign concept to me.  There are many books, courses, videos all about relaxing.  Consequently, this has not been an easy part of a journey for me.  I was born with “ants in my pants,” and yet I do not have ADHD.

I hope that you are able to enjoy the comical vlog of my being introduced to relaxing.  Am I a master at relaxing, let’s just say that my teacher may need to re-teach me the art of relaxation.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

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!

Grounding “Earthing” Meditation

by Natasha Botkin

When I began blogging, my oldest son suggested that I move a bit more modern into the vlogging social media world.  So, here I am.  I realize that during this journey, I will have to locate a decent video editing program.  The last one was awesome, that is until I uploaded and found their name throughout my video. One step at a time….

We just went through Winter Solstice where Mother Gaia was gently reminding us to slow down.  I hope that you were able to have a few moments to rest and relax during the holidays.

I know that I was able to walk along a favorite location of mine.  Water is an important element for me, and I just adore the seal who greets me or the one lopsided seagull who dive bombs the other water birds. IMAG0360

The angels have strongly reminded me that with Winter Solstice just passing and the new energies of 2015, grounding/earthing is an important element to incorporate within one’s busy schedule.  This is a way to connect with the energies of Mother Gaia, and she loves to share her energies.

This takes only a few moments out of the day.  Happy grounding/earthing!

Much Love and Light

Winter Solstice Interlude

By Natasha Botkin     Mother Gaia Tree Earth

 

Normally, I am on overdrive, a fast paced personality. Others asking me to rest or take a moment to slow down.  Now, from my typical pace, I have slowed down, and yet I know that others would disagree.  I hear the call of the birds, nature, mother Gaia.

Winter Solstice is approaching and mother Gaia is slowing her pace, by beginning the earth’s turning at a slower rate.  I feel the rev of my internal engine begin to slow its pace.  Ordinarily, I would take a day, a brief moment of rest or as my BeLoved would say zonk out from being on overdrive for too long.

I recall a conversation that we once had, we were newly in love, and on our way home from a magical weekend.  I was nervous with the standstill traffic, would we make it in time to pick up my youngest son, and my BeLoved would be meeting my youngest son for the first time that evening.  Am I ready for this, my mind drifted, when I hear, “I have ADHD.”  I return, snap to the sound of his voice almost spitting out the beverage in my mouth and respond, “Are you kidding me, you are more mellow than I am.”  He smiled one of his, as I would begin to learn, patient smiles and the wisdom that would ensue shined forth, ever gentle, ever patient, teaching me to slow down.

He shares with me his ways of slowing down.  I look at him and say, “I meditate, I practice yoga.”  Again that gentle smile of wisdom as the conversation continues.  With our seperation, I have once again picked up a quick pace. 010

Snap, we are back to this moment in time. The dishwasher konked out and the flat line is not a thrilling moment to one with a busy life.  Yep, God takes drastic measures to grab my attention. The angels smile, she is our “soap opera, let’s pop some popcorn.”

Now I am smiling as I recall that moment in time with my BeLoved. The boys are washing and drying the dishes while I am making salmon chowder.  Something inside is listening, slow down, breath.  The mother in me says slowly breath.  Time to prepare for the winter.

My body is slowing its pace, breathing and feeling mother Gaia guide me.  I lay down to rest, relax. Yes I can go into deep meditation, almost comatose; however my true nature is the engine that revs along at a high rate of speed and then crashes.  I hear the ravens, the seagulls, the blue jays. I can feel mother Gaia guide me to a deep meditation.  Slow down, rest, relax. Prepare for the winter, prepare your body to freely play at a slower pace.  You need this.  Rest, write about it, others need to rest and slow their pace.  I am become one with mother Gaia’s guidance, slowing my pace and enjoying this wonderful wisdom that had been brought forth.  Mother Gaia resting

May you also slow your pace and rest.  Ask mother Gaia to guide you; she will gladly guide you.

Much Love and Light.
