Valentine’s Day blues?

I thought I’d write this a few days ahead as Valentine’s Day can bring up a lot of emotions for single people. I’ve talked to an increasing number of women who think there’s something wrong with them because they haven’t had a serious relationship in years. Pretty much everyone acknowledges dating culture is toxic, yet women are still so judged for singledom they start to question themselves.

In many cases, their only “problem” is that they have healthy self esteem and healthy boundaries, which are very much at odds with modern dating culture. They are not afraid to ask a guy what he’s looking for, in order to avoid 3 month situationships. They are not interested in being one of multiple women someone is sleeping with, they’ve ditched the cheater, are not giving those who left a second chance, they dumped the guy with the secret girlfriend/ wife and refuse to be their ex’s backup booty call. In short, they have said NO to being exploited.

Who benefits from women having poor boundaries? Toxic men. Casual dating culture is rife with misogyny and double standards. Women are supposed to consider abuse for not being interested in casual sex, strangers sending dick pics or asking for nude photos as normal behaviour from adult males. It would have them believe they are “too fussy” if they are not interested in men 10-25 years older. It tries to label them as pushy, controlling and unreasonable if they have a bar higher than the absolute minimum. Fake female profiles on dating sites and social media are now a multi-million dollar industry, fueling unrealistic male fantasies.

So if you are single, congratulations for believing in your worth and waiting for someone on your level. Everyone deserves someone who adds value and happiness to their lives. The only way to change the broken system is by refusing to play the game. Humans are not replaceable playthings. There are good men out there, looking for a soulmate and a queen to adore. In the meantime, buy the flowers, wear the sexy lingerie, go away for a weekend. While it’s not the same as being in a good relationship, life is too short not to spoil yourself.

State of the Ethers Pt 2/2: Divine Unions

This is one of the most exciting and longed-for aspects of the raise in planetary consciousness. Lots of high vibratory relationships will begin this year.

A spiritually awakened person is an anchor and transmitter for higher energies, and helps raise the collective energy. Each awakened person walking the earth makes it incrementally easier for others to awaken. Divine partnerships have an even greater synergy. They embody and radiate the template of higher energy, spiritual union, healthy sexuality, core level trust, respect and psychic closeness. A welcome and timely antidote to the current toxic dating culture.

More evolved intimate relationships are the cornerstone of a more enlightened society. Hence the dark energies have long opposed this, preventing soulmates from meeting and encouraging dysfunction, addiction and fear. They are the forces behind normalisation of porn culture, and objectifying, violent and degrading sexual attitudes. A lot of that was cleared during the solstice upgrade.

These partners have a high level of similar soul energy, and all manner of interesting synchronicities are common. And often a sense of familiarity, of having met before.

I knew your name
I knew your face
Your love and grace
Past and present now embrace
Worlds collide in inner space

Star Sky ~ Two Steps from Hell

Youtube link with lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsi1ivi03sE

Often there will be a sense of knowing someone new is on the way. You may get songs stuck in your head, images of their environment, intuitive glimpses of their appearance or personality. Once you physically meet, there are always all sorts of parallels in your life path – similar life challenges, loving the same obscure band, having the same favourite stripey socks etc.

A quick note on the term twin flame:

I personally don’t use the term twin flame as it has become very abused in the spiritual community, often being used to romanticise playing rescuer, codependent attachment to avoidant partners, obsession with someone not/no longer interested or justifying getting involved with someone married. A spiritual relationship has integrity and respects boundaries and free will.

It also implies that there is only one true soulmate – but what if that person cheats, becomes abusive or has an addiction? The life choices people make affect relationships just as much as destiny/ soul contracts etc. Spiritual adulthood is taking responsibility, how choices affects others, and drawing healthy boundaries when others are out of alignment. As an awakened person in these times, you need to be in full bloom to be in service. The old paradigm of being dragged down whilst making excuses for someone’s poor behaviour has had its time. Look for someone who has chosen to live at their potential.

Thus those persisting in relationships that no longer serve their highest good will be feeling increasingly conflicted and uncomfortable. Even if they are still emotionally attached, their soul knows it’s not the right person.

How to attract a divine partnership

Ahh, the million dollar question. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard of people in the spiritual community bemoaning they can’t find a partner on a similar level and path. The good news is, as individual and the collective energy level raises, the easier it gets. The big boost to the masculine energy mentioned in the first half of this update will ripple outwards and have a big effect in terms – as partners themselves, and as teachers, writers, artists and wayshowers walking the talk. Others are going to see it and be inspired.

Strive to be at your best – body, mind and spirit. Inner work and healing any unhealthy emotional patterns is paramount. Otherwise you may sabotage it if you do meet a person like this. Commitment phobia, drama/pain addiction or unworthiness can cause people to push away the very thing they have yearned for. Have a conscious think about the right sort of person for you – on a soul not an ego level.

The basics of self care, meditation, staying grounded and energy hygiene apply. Think of being a lighthouse in a storm, a shining soul beaming through the darkness. You will get hints and signs, guidance to follow. This doesn’t need to be forced (indeed I’ve seen people so obsessed with an unhealthy partner that they perceive every tiny thing as a sign). Ask for guidance then wait, don’t be fixed on it coming in a certain form. The universe has a marvellous sense of humour when it comes to bringing a soulmate into your awareness.

Your ancestors and guides will be having a giggle over this…

Prepare to be sassed in lots of little ways. Enjoy the ride. Good things are on the horizon for many over the next few months.

State of the Ethers Pt 1/2: If this is the Age of Aquarius, why do I feel so crap?

After such a hyped build up and a massive day, many are now feeling post solstice blues…

I’ve been part of many worldwide meditations but this was a whole new level. In the few minutes leading up to the exact time of the Cobra meditation – timed to the Saturn Jupiter conjunct, the feeling as thousands world wide tuned in to the group meditation was amazing. Congratulations ground crew: we easily surpassed the critical mass of beings required to shift up a level. Over the next few weeks to months things will percolate into the physical.

Welcome to the Age of Aquarius. Kudos to whoever made this masterpiece.

The upgrade requires some acclimatisation time for the physical body, and brings up residues. Fears and dysfunctional habits must be cleared to allow the new energies to flow. This can feel like a huge emotional drop after the heightened state of the solstice. Christmas and New Year is also an emotionally challenging time for many – looking back over a difficult year, and toxic family politics. There is also opposition from the dark to try and counteract this vibrational upgrade – hence the new wave of lockdowns, bird flu and negativity all over the mainstream news. They know they’ve lost but they keep trying to draw things out.

More meme excellence by Regina Cornelio

Lightworkers, witches, starseeds whatever you call yourself: batter up, you’re on! This is the time we’ve been waiting for. More and more mainstream folks are awakening and their minds opening. The disclosures over the next few months will throw the rest of the unawakened into the deep end and they will be looking for guidance and answers. Whether it’s having conversations one on one, teaching, healing, blogging, creating art…the time is now and YOU are ready to hold that space. There will be no need to force your perspective down people’s throats, as people become ready they will ask, or synchronistically come across your work. It’s OK to have doubts, or moments of imposter syndrome. There is strong intention in these writings – if you are reading this, you are ready. Trust the universe that brought you to these words.

A few key things will finally kick off in 2021:

As we clear the dross, more intuitive and “supernatural” abilities will start coming online. We will also be having more and more conscious interaction with the elemental realm. Faerie tales shall be revealed as glimmers of history. Humans will have to learn energy boundaries and customs for interaction with beings in different forms. The concept of multiple dimensions, timelines, and how false teachings have shaped society will be shocking for many.

In the next few months we will see a HUGE swathe of men stepping up in terms of spirituality. No more dabbling or lurking in the shadows. They will be coming out of the spiritual closet and openly living their path and their truth. This coincides with a much broader, more integrated concept of masculinity in the mainstream. Men are emerging from the shadows of toxic patriarchy as much as women are.

Divine Unions – lots of new high vibratory relationships. The dark energies have long opposed this, preventing people from meeting and encouraging dysfunction, addiction and fear. A lot of that was cleared during the solstice upgrade. The downside is those persisting in relationships that no longer serve their highest good will be feeling increasingly conflicted and uncomfortable. There is so much regarding divine partnerships that it became an entire blog post of its own and will be posted tomorrow as the second half of this update.

Focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. Right now, superficially things may look chaotic, but many things will be revealed to the mainstream this year. There has been massive behind-the-scenes progress. Your mindspace, consciously or subconsciously, has a huge effect on the collective scale. When an awakened person embodies the energy of joy and love, you generate enough energy to counter balance dozens in fear. Take time out to do things you love each day, and to envision the future you wish to see.

Part 2/2: Divine partnerships will be posted tomorrow

State of the Ethers: Anchor & Transmute

We are at end game times. The time for awakening people is over. At this point our job is not to awaken, but to be a lighthouse in the storm, and anchor in the highest possible energy. As Goenkaji, father of Vipassana would say: Remain Equanimous.

It would be easier if people learned the unpleasant truths in increments, so that their rational minds and emotions could adjust gradually. However, the societal conditioning is so pervasive that anything out of the mainstream is immediately attacked as conspiracy theory. They attack both the message and messenger. People are unlikely to open their minds at this point, so avoid getting mired in conflict. They will hear of it in the forthcoming tidal waves of disclosure. Their emotional reaction upon learning what has transpired may well spill into civil violence. It is our job to remain centred and stabilise the energy field to make the awakening and transition as smooth as possible.

Teachers in the ego trap of playing guru to adoring minions will soon be exposed. Some very high profile people with vast social media followings have fallen into this, and it makes them easily co-opted by evil energies. This is important, as once the proverbial hits the fan people are going to need to know who is the real deal and capable of holding space, and who has simply been plagiarising others’ work. (This is the reason I stopped writing the updates some years ago).

Disconnecting from the conflicts and holding the line is the theme for most lightworkers. You will be far more effective on the etheric planes presently, and there is much cleansing and transmuting to be done. One very well known one is the Violet Flame. This flame transmutes anything out of alignment, and can be used on situations, cities, people and animals. It has an immobilising effect on anyone attacking you, as their fuel of anger, hate etc suddenly gets transmuted.

Stun them with violet glory. Spock knew where it was at. To the anonymous sci-fi geek who made this meme: humanity thanks you

It will not harm them, and used repeatedly will transmute layers of fear, anger or survival ego based energy. Side note: when Violet Flaming cities, don’t forget to send it underground too, a LOT of transmuting and clearing is required under the surface. For those of you aligned with dragon energy, you may find a few dragon helpers so delighted by the good work being done they will join in.

Don’t forget to violet flame yourself. Add it to your daily shower. My phone currently has a violet flame wallpaper.

We are at the time of vernal and autumnal equinox, a time of balancing. Is your giving and receiving balanced? The theme of anything out of integrity falling apart continues. A good time to clear physical clutter. Acknowledge and thank your house and its spirit for providing safety and shelter, ask if any repairs are required.

Energetic housekeeping may be in order too. Keep chipping away at the long overdue to-do list, or go back and properly repair anything that has been quickly patched up – relationships, websites, finances and vehicles. Keep checking in, get your life running on the best path of integrity, this will mean there are less ego hooks to get you sucked into conflict and off course. Discernment is vital right now.

We have got this. We have all been waiting for this and we are ready. Stay the course. Until next time, remain awesome.

State of the Ethers Sept 10 2020

 

The rollercoaster that is this year keeps delivering. The two main competing timelines of 5D Ascension/ Awakening vs 3D Dystopia/ Armageddon continue to play out. How you feel emotionally at a given moment is a good barometer of which one you are on, regardless of circumstance. Many people vacillate between the two, giving a sense of time speeding up and odd deja vu moments.

There is progress under the surface. Metaphorically and literally. Take a peek at https://www.volcanodiscovery.com/earthquakes/lists.html
Look at earthquakes in various regions, especially in regards to depth and distribution. Even more interesting, some countries’ seismograph sites are blocking certain region’s results

The birthing is a long labour, we’re all a bit over it, but things are shifting. Choose to believe in it, then you can feel it, tap into it and thus ground it ASAP to physical reality for everyone. One person’s awakening sparks another’s. The recurring image I have is of the lighting of the beacon fires in the Lord of The Rings: Return of the King.

What is put out, via intention or physical action, is now coming back quickly. Good if you are trying to create something positive, not so much if you’re being shifty. In the last few days I have witnessed the Universe deal a couple of karmic wake up calls in record time. This is not punishment, simply faster energetic account keeping. It’s training wheels for 5D, where manifestation is almost instantaneous. In 5D we must be conscious with our energy, acting with integrity.

The darker energies are desperate to pull things back down, trying to keep people in chaotic fear and anger states (aka easily manipulated and a tasty morsel to feed off). Cue yet more massive wildfires to distract y’all. This may be a good time to take a break from social media or certain individuals in your life. Nervy knots of uncertainty are being projected as fireballs of overreaction towards others. Do your best to be positive, forgive yourself for sometimes backsliding into fear.

Same advice as always, just at a higher priority – rest, revive, ground, energetically shield, eat well, get some sunlight. Be gentle with yourself and others. Once you break through the current stressors, you will find new gifts available during meditations and visualisations, and psychadelic dreams. These, like the instant karma, are glimmers of the new energy that we are moving towards, and that we can pull towards us.

What is Sacred sexuality?

Many Westerners are being drawn to a more holistic approach to life in general, and their personal lives are no exceptions. People often have a sense that there is something more, a higher purpose or meaning, that they yearn for, even if they can’t articulate exactly what it is. I personally believe Sacred Sexuality offers the answers many are seeking.
It is the art of bringing the profound spiritual experience and immense physical pleasure into one’s sexual life, and ultimately into all aspects of life. Sex is for most people the most common and easily accessed experience of the divine, and with practise this energy can be harnessed and used constructively.
Like any extraordinary experience, it sets off irrevocable changes…in our outlook on life, and how we feel about ourselves. In the same sense that the true yogic path is far more than just stretching, the traditional teachings of sacred sex were an inclusive spiritual outlook on life, embracing sexuality, the body and the everyday physical experience as a pathway to spiritual evolution. Many indigenous cultures have their own forms of sacred sexuality eg. paganism, Tantra, Taoist teachings. The recurring underlying themes are the synergistic creative force of merging polarised energies and accessing higher consciousness.
It is about recognising the divine in everything, and experiencing and embodying this divinity. Sexuality becomes a dance of physical and spiritual love, of energy and higher consciousness.
Physically the nervous system has to accustom to higher levels of pleasure without overload, resistance or dissociation. Emotionally speaking, this is also true. Hitting ecstatic states involves a deep level of surrender. It is about the experiencing yourself without any labels: paradoxically at the most primal and powerful, yet most vulnerable and open. To share this with another is beautiful, transforming and *VERY* humbling. So even though it’s a positive experience, it can be a bit confronting. People find their early transcendental sexual experiences can unexpectedly throw their relationship dynamics. Interestingly, the people who often have the hardest time are often those who have been quite promiscuous, who on the surface may seem very sexually liberated, but in fact avoid intimacy. This sudden emotional and energetic openness can feel like loss of identity, control or freedom, and it is very easy to project this onto the partner.
Like any spiritual path, facing, accepting and releasing the ego’s needs, wounds and resistances are an inherent part of the journey. Deep emotional healing will take place. You can only get so far if you don’t want to deal with this.
The rewards are immense. Feeling happier with yourself and life. Increased healing, health, energy, vitality, radiance and joy. A whole new level of emotional connection with people (not just sexual partners) becomes possible. Oh yes, and the amazing sex…these are the experiences that leave you energised, tingling and sensitised for days afterwards.

Toxic partners: breaking the bonds

I wanted to follow up the previous article on toxic partners with some ways to clear and cut from these people. This is also a great way to start the new year with a clean slate – and even helps with long gone partners. It is one of the biggest favours we can do for ourselves, emotionally, spiritually and sexually.

Many times over, I have witnessed people blossom and grow as they move on from a toxic relationship. The energy previously caught up in trying to keep the relationship running morphs into an explosion of fun and creativity. A sudden acceleration or change in career, hobbies, haircuts and travel are common. People who have been stressed-out shells of themselves start to glow again.

1. The tricky part: working on yourself

In order to really move on, we need to own and heal whatever in us is grabbing onto this person. Otherwise we will simply recreate the dynamic with someone else.

For example, if someone doesn’t think they are worthy of love, they will get uncomfortable with a healthy loving connection. This can manifest as feeling bored, trapped etc and they will often subconsciously sabotage the relationship. These people are thus often attracted to those who are emotionally unavailable, already in relationships or even toxic.

The subconscious favours familiar patterns, even if they are unpleasant. So a little deep soul searching is required here.

Toxic people tend to be energy vampires and feed off attention, competition and conflict. It reduces a partnership to its lowest possible form, a tit-for-tat power play. These relationships activate our wounds, confirm pessimistic beliefs and have an emotionally addictive quality. The key word is drama. If someone has a pattern of on/ off relationships, says they find nice guys/ girls boring, call conflict passion or they are into make up sex, this is a pretty good indication this sort of dynamic is playing out.

2. The ritual of release:

Do this in front of an open fire or candle.

Write a letter to this person. Write out all your grudges, all the ways you feel you have been wronged. There will likely be anger, and possibly some tears. Be real, get everything off your chest. You may not be ready to forgive them, and that is fine, it may take several clearings. Burn the letter.

Now focus inwards, and find where in your body those emotions are. Visualise them if you can – colour, texture, sensation, memories. Use your power of visualisation to pull them out of your body, even use you hands if it feels right. They are often thick and sticky. An icky sensation, stomach gurgles or burps are quite common when people are clearing this energy. Pull those energy strings or blobs out and cast them into the flame to be transmuted. Continue until you are done. Deep cleansing breaths really help too.

Then visualise the remaining bonds between yourself and this person. It may be one thick cord, or many tiny ones. Gently visualise cutting this cord in whichever way feels right – gently nibbling with scissors, or one fell light saber swoop. See the two ends returning to yourself and the other person, and send a mental message of release and completion. Feel the end being absorbed into you, and your energy boundary sealing over.

Now write a letter to yourself. Write out any ways in which you let this person step on your boundaries, how you let this situation get out of hand.

  • Is there a pattern in common with other people in your life or previous partners?
  • If you met another person like this, what would you do differently?
  • Are there any red flags you would recognise in future?

3. Follow up with any physical action required

People are often resistant to taking these measures because they are so effective.

  • Return possessions
  • Delete messages
  • Delete or block them from your social media so your curiosity won’t get the better of you
  • Reclaim yourself and your space. Perhaps rearrange the furniture, wash the bedding so you can’t smell them on the pillow.
  • If there is something you enjoy that you haven’t gotten around to doing for awhile, this is the perfect time.

For a really toxic entangled relationship, it may take a few rounds of this clearing, and that is fine. It is common to feel some grief and regret over how much time was wasted. Don’t beat yourself up.

4. Reappearances from the ex

Cutting cords to an ex is a profound piece of energy work, and it is uncanny how often that person will pick upon the shift and contact you, so be prepared.

Be wary of people like this trying to reconcile. Toxic people don’t like to feel they have “lost” so they may put on 100% charm, just to suck you back in so they can be the one to discard you. Or they may just want some drama and a fight. If you don’t feed them with an emotional reaction, they might escalate the situation to see if they can trigger you, but if you hold steady they will look for easier prey.

Over the long term toxic exes tend to resurface periodically. If they find themselves bored or horny they go through their contact list, to see who snaps the bait. Don’t be surprised if you get a message out of the blue months  or even years later.

This can be very jolting emotionally, so it may be better just to block them from all forms of access to you.

Embodiment: Strength and delicacy

An embodied woman is both delicate and strong. In reclaiming our feminine energy, the challenge is to balance the two, for to be open energetically and emotionally is to also be  vulnerable.

Strong women have traditionally been beaten down, figuratively and literally. They are a threat to societies where there is an uneven power balance between the genders. Our growth is often an uncomfortable process for others. Our minds may get sucked into the hype, but our gut will always tell us when we have betrayed our own truth, or allowed others to do so. It can take a while to learn to hear the voice of intuition, as the ego mind, full of needing to please others, feel right or follow the familiar, may well put up a struggle.

You will be tested. As we reclaim, we redefine our boundaries, which dries up the supply for those who are used to taking our time, attention, sympathy or love without return. Expect them to act out and to project labels..selfish, uptight, controlling etc. So the balance here is to gently but firmly define our boundaries, to ourselves and others, without putting up walls and shutting down.

Living an empowered life is also sensual.

It may not look like others idea of what is the right path, but find the clothes, lifestyle, music and friends that inspire your growth in healthy ways.

Feed your creativity, your sexual hunger, your sensual celebration.

Celebrate yourself: your curves, your waxing and waning cycles, your female intuition, your connection to nature.

Once you make the decision to find beauty and serenity, you see little opportunities to create everywhere.

Shakti calls – are you ready?

The sensual energy, creativity and emotional connection are all aspects of the Kundalini Shakti, or Shakti, the divine feminine spiritual force. Far more than a mere sexual force, it is the luscious, juicy path of inspiration, discovery, happiness, health and spiritual well-being. It’s your life mojo! It is a forgiving, generous and strong energy and drives us to grow into our potential.
Many women today are disconnected to their Shakti energy – unhappy, unfulfilled, creatively blocked.
They struggle with an energetically toxic world and internalise this as toxic thinking – the need to compete, compare, look perfect, have the perfect life and partner – all external validation to prove they are “good enough”.
The truth is we are all more than good enough.
Even as we are works-in-progress, we are more than good enough.
We just need to reconnect. We need to listen to ourselves, not the “shoulds”. Follow what calls you, question and challenge your fears.
Ah, there’s the fine print: more than good enough demands the best of you, and nothing less. It requires improvement and spiritual growth – there is no place or complacency or victimhood.
We have all seen that woman who has that magnetic something, even if she isn’t what media would tell us is gorgeous.
We have met people that have crafted amazing lives, in big and small ways.
People that have overcome horrendous tragedy or illness and left an amazing legacy. They have all had to push through their fears.
No, some people won’t like it. Those who haven’t stepped into their own power are threatened. There will be snide comments and judgments. Leave them to the mirror of their insecurities.
Be brave enough to celebrate your body, your sexuality, the physical experience. Be brave enough to feel smart, strong beautiful, in all your flaws. Be brave enough to give yourself permission to dream and grow. Find your internal compass, so you are not windswept by a world that tries to tell you you need to by x,y and z to be a success.
This is the gift of Kundalini Shakti. She calls..are you ready

Healing our relationship with sex is part of evolving consciousness

Healing emotionally and attaining spiritual adulthood requires that we heal unhealthy sexual beliefs. It allows sex to take a natural, positive part of life – as something both divine and everyday. In fact, in the tantric view everything in life, even the most ordinary, is viewed as inherently divine.

It is well worth taking the time to examine your beliefs about sexuality, relationships, gender roles, what you define as good and bad. Even in people with fairly liberal backgrounds, some of these internal programs may be still holding you back, albeit subtly.

Humans are innately and naturally sexual. As a primal impulse, for procreation, as a yearning for intimacy and to experience a sense of divinity, the sexual drive is present. One cannot be at peace whilst wrestling with guilt or shame about an aspect of one’s own essence. This tends to manifest internally as avoidance/shutdown or obsessive/ addictive behaviours, or alternating between both.

An inner conflict with sexuality will also manifest outwardly. It is no coincidence that the most perpetually conflict ridden societies are repressive. They are more judgmental and controlling of their people’s private lives, and highly suspicious of differing beliefs or lifestyles.

When these belief systems (personal, familial, cultural or religious) are extreme, transgression of the rules is perceived as a betrayal of the entire tribe. The control may be subtle – guilt, shaming and manipulation, using labels such as dirty, impure, bad, unholy, not respectable. In extreme cases, the infringement must be punished and made an example of. Some of these punishments are barbaric and far worse than the original perceived wrongdoing.

Sex and religion got mixed together early in the story of humanity – and we’ve paid a heavy price for it – children are told mere sexual thoughts or masturbation can be enough to invoke the wrath of deities and result in eternal damnation or misfortune.

We have seen this through all times and cultures – from rules of acceptable courtship, sexual conduct, removal or maintenance of body hair, clothing, forced marriage, genital mutilation, homophobia, so called honor killings, blaming victims of rape, slut shaming, stoning of unmarried couples. Historically, females have fared worse, and feminine sexuality was (and is) much more policed.

If someone is truly awakening in their sexuality, they are increasing self awareness and are working through their wounds. It is an emotional and spiritual journey, and truly is a game changer. They are starting to shift beyond the illusion of ego, and of the roles the unawakened world requires people to play. Sex then becomes another aspect of a healthy, positive existence, not as an ego support mechanism in the form of conquest, competition, escape/ distraction, obsession or self validation.

This requires taking responsibility for their actions and beliefs, and a recognition of when others are projecting or attempting to manipulate. They are comfortable with their own boundaries, and respect others. They are centred and powerful, and not triggered by different belief systems. As part of this awakening process many people find they are no longer attracted to toxic relationships. They may distance themselves from an unhealthy or restrictive family dynamic or religion.
