When I began practicing Week 4 of this cleansing practice that I call Katarsis, I was completely unaware of the revelation I would receive. And, to be honest, a bit surprised. This week we are rebel evolving Spirit. Spirit, as I know it, is the embracing of the Divine Feminine side of myself. Also known as Mother Earth, darkness, and the like. I’m finding more and more that it is my grounding, comfort, and full acceptance of myself.
And that’s just it. Without the embracing of this side of myself, I am left with duality. I am left with loving one side of myself and hating the other. When the honest-to-God truth is, the only thing that is creating this illusion of duality is my very own perception. As I began to break down the walls that I’ve created in myself, I began to see truly see my spirit and feel it. I could palpably feel the door of my soul opening to a more synergistic freedom that I am that I am.
Here follows my disposition written while in the darkness. One can only admit that this self-referential perspective is just as loving, palpable and true as my “other” side. Hence, they can only be seen as one.
“I don’t even live the way I want to live. I don’t even choose the life I want to create. I don’t even allow myself to extend further past than my own self-talk of dreaming, of imagining. I have imprisoned myself in my very own walls that I illusory call “reality.” I have divinized my very own darkness and called it light. I have entrapped my joys and entranced my sorrows, none of which are real, so as to keep me from a true life of joy/suffering that I long for in the very deepest part of my being.
Here I am wanting community, creating it and destroying it. Here I am wanting connection, creating it and destroying it. Here I am wanting light, creating it and destroying it. I am choosing this path. Choosing this creation and destruction and for the life of me I cannot tell you why. I am deeply troubled, for I have found the pearl and my questions only go deeper still.
I thought I would realize I were awake and be comforted. Yet rather it has created complete unrest hitherto in. I’m awake! I’m awake! And I am still asking, still searching. I’m awake! I’m awake! And I have more questions still. The hole, the abyss, my darkness keeps getting deeper. I feel as though I am digging and will be until my ending days.
For it is not in this old way that I will find solutions. It is not in a practice that I will find comfort. It is not in my discovery of wholeness, my treasure within, that I will find myself completed. Alas, I am lost. And in my darkness, I am found.”
Yes, I wrote this in what many would clinically call a depression. I did not feel like lifting a finger. Yet in my darkness, I felt a oneness with myself by embracing it fully. During my dark moment I
• Stepped into my dark feelings
• Embraced my dark feelings
• Comforted my dark feelings
• Applauded my dark feelings
• Accepted my dark feelings
I did not make any attempt to get myself out of my funk. I did not chastise myself for feeling this way or that. I did not make material purchases or stuff the feelings as to numb myself from them. I embraced them with arms opened wide. At first this felt awkward. By the end of my few hour darkness–which has lasted days, if not weeks, in the past–I felt like a whole person still. I did not feel like I needed to get better, work through stuff, use positive self talk, or the like. I just felt whole. I just felt like me.
This is the embracing of Spirit. May you embrace your Spirit self this week. May you embrace all of you.

Happy Birthday to me.
I’m trying to tread lightly. But who am I kidding? I stink at treading lightly. It is just not my style. Nor is the exclusion of others. Which is what this post is all about. Shoot dang. This is what this whole blog is about. Unity.
So here I am over the past month going: How can I explain truth without cutting others out? My Grand Father Sir (GFS) expressed this in his own way and it took me a few weeks to see and hear it. And that’s okay. I’m glad I learned before my writing became: consciousness, consciousness, consciousness, consciousness, consciousness. And everyone got bored or I created those who liked my blog and those who believe I fell off my rocker.
Here’s the down and dirty: I never was on my rocker.
The great follow up is that if there never was a rocker and I have nothing to fall off then there really isn’t any point for fretting. You know who you are, you fret about me. You become concerned with my growth. What I call Rebel Evolve (see the Rebel link for a full on definition so we can be on the same page!!).
What am I talking about here? I’m talkin’ bout tossing out the stuff inside of me that is not aligned with truth. That which is no longer working and replacing it and aligning it with truth. I think what frightens many–by “frighten” I mean to strike with fear or to become fearful–is that the evolving occurs at a faster rate than the one responding from a fear-based place. My husband, bless his heart (especially now that I understand this about him), has reacted to me this way until we had this aha moment* together. Now that he sees me in a clearer, more truthful light he sees the choice of reacting with love or with fear. That’s the place we all want to come to, including myself.
How often do we react from our own fears and stay in the same place out of FEAR rather than love? How often? Is it possible that any time we have a negative reaction to someone else we are over-identifying with that we have fear about ourselves?
And I’ll say it again: when we have a negative reaction to another–a reaction other than LOVE–we are over-identifying with their experience, situation, etc. and it is coming from our fear-based self! So what can you do about it?
• Eat healthy, drink lots of water, keep caffeine intake before two pm, be aware of toxins around you, sleep 7-8 hours, have one or two close friends, be connected to community (a church, a moms group, a yoga studio, group therapy, a walking club, etc. Connect!)…get your basic needs met.
• Take a deep breath (or use your relaxation techniques).
• Listen and let it flow over you…you do not have to fix it!
• Ask them what they want from you: feedback (your experience of them), advice from your perspective, and so on. Key: Just love them!
• Translate it into your language.
Above all else, let go. Love. See and hear from your heart, not your ego. This is not survival, this is living. We all come with baggage, perhaps more than many of us are willing to acknowledge–past lives, truth we have buried, lineage issues, etc. Starting at love will only lead us to love. There really is no harm, no foul in taking this stand point. I’m not really offering anything truly radical. This has been occurring since the beginning. This has been the way of life in the entire Universe and beyond.
Move past language. Love today.
*Aha! Moments…I didn’t get this until I translated it into my language of “revelation” and more recently “quantum leap” or “brain jumping”…what it really encapsulates is a transformation, a change, towards (more) love, happiness, truth. Yeah?

Welcome! If you’re reading this, you are part of the conscious effort to bring about love here at Jenny L’voe, as well as locally and globally. We are beginning Week 2 of our Katarsis cleansing and this couldn’t be more exciting. This week we will be Rebel Evolving our food habits and transfiguring them into awesomeness. If you missed Week 1, no worries. Just go back to last Tuesday’s post Yoga: Movement and Repose.
Before we dive into it, as was stated on the post-Weekly endeavor, Rebel Evolve: Katarsis on veganism is all about cleansing the vital energy (feeling) to connect to the soul to connect to God. So…
You’re probably wondering, “What could I read about the vegan diet that’s new?”
You’ve probably heard about health benefits, weight benefits, scent benefits, and the like. And those are all great on the physical plane. But what about on other plane’s like the mind (mental and emotional)? Or on the spiritual plane (if you believe in that, and I do)?
What benefits have you then?
Well, in this seven week Rebel Evolve series, I promise that this will be the week that you remember. That you remember:
Yes, that is when I woke up.
In our materialist, physical-focused ultra consumed world–although that’s shifting–we are constantly focused on the material. Even in places that speak of consciousness, we are focused on material aspects of consciousness and not everything else that’s out there! Our diet is no different. We are looking at what will make us “look” a certain way and yet throw out emotions, mentality, and spirituality. Okay, the world is beginning to catch on to “mentality.”
So what if we viewed it from the bottom down view (Divine to human) and not human to human? What then?
Well. I’ll tell you. Here’s the good and short of it (make a graph of it if you’re a graphic designer and plaster it all over FB, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. As long as you give jennylvoe credit, I don’t care!):
Omnivore Diet = Dead = Omnivore Human = Dead
Vegetarian = Dead/Live = Vegetarian Human = Dead/Live
Vegan = Life = Vegan Human = Life
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Hear me out. Before you go clicking onto something else, don’t judge me and just listen.
What I mean–and more importantly, what Jesus meant–by “dead” is asleep in every planes other than physical. You just can’t see or hear, unless you have complete and blind faith to do so. That is called belief. It all starts with belief.
The Omnivore Diet is Dead because you mainly eat dead things. With those dead things comes death, or death energy, as well as all of their issues along with it and some cholesterol for you. This diet causes you to not see or hear, which is dead which is sleeping. If you want to wake up progressively, start adding more life-giving foods. Remember: the consciousness of animals are alive, so when they die and you eat them, you are putting dead consciousness into your being.
Dead foods include but are not excluded too: beef, chicken, turkey, pork, duck, shrimp, fish, shark, clams, kangaroo, crocodile, et cetera.
Processed foods of every and all sorts are also dead. No matter how organic or delicious it may look, it is still dead if it is processed. Sorry, (she says to herself).
A Vegetarian Diet is a Dead/Live diet because more vegetarians eat a variety of vegetables and fruits. They are putting both dead foods and live foods into their bodies. These may include cheese, yogurt, eggs of all sorts, milk, whey, casein, lactose, and any other product or food (totally different) that is designated vegetarian. Foods that contain cholesterol are not vegetarian, as they contain cholesterol which is only a byproduct of the meat industry.
The Vegan Diet is Life because only living foods are eaten. Preferably one would eat a plant-based vegan diet. This includes a majority diet of vegetables, fruits, and water from nonplastic sources.
If you stayed with me till now, THANK YOU. Let us continue.
Plant-sourced food is live. Like animals, plants have consciousness. When you pick a plant, the consciousness stays with that item until days after. Greens have their life–that which we call vitamins, nutrients, aminos, omegas, etc. Its energy force–for up to three days. Yes. Any green. Fruits and veggies with a tough exterior can last longer. Some up to a week or two, others like root vegetables even longer.
So after reading the above, you can see how a local (preferably your backyard) plant-based diet is the most sustainable diet of all three. Sustainable meaning life giving meaning forever meaning for you meaning for me meaning for us meaning for our spirit meaning for God meaning consciousness. Doesn’t that sum it up nicely?
This weeks challenge is to add as many fruits and veggies to your diet as possible. Local plant-based grown plant-based organic foods are best. They are the most alive. Here’s a few ideas to get you started:
• Add a strawberry/banana smoothy with added flax seeds and hemp or oatmeal with raisins for breakfast
• Add a kale salad with grapes, apples, and soaked almonds with a vegan protein shake for lunch
• Add quinoa with very lightly steamed bell peppers, asparagus, and mushrooms for dinner
That’s a typical day for me. I’m also a huge fan of the Green Grasshopper–a wheat grass/barely shot mixed with light apple juice and a dash of lemon–for a great morning kick or afternoon jolt. If you’re wondering, “How do you get enough of this or that?” then
Mom, please stop reading my blog.
No, seriously. Follow a regimen or weekly vegan menu like that found on Lindsay’s amazing blogsite Happy Herbivore.
Yet here’s the goal:
To wake up. Which is to be fully alive. To be in consciousness. To be fully present. To see and hear. To having the full availability of your feelings (mind) and spirit (heart). Thus the goal is to know in that minute what your being needs in all planes, not just in the physical. And what effects the collective consciousness–all of truth combined–not just YOU right NOW. See what I did there?
If some greens can do that for you, then why not? Message me at jenny lvoe dot com for more assistiance. That’s French for “assistance.”
Yoga: Movement and Repose Jenny Update
Oh my goodness! I had crazy revelation last week opening me up to consciousness about my movement (how important it is to me and how I was slacking until recently), repose (what I could take out of my current diet to improve it: caffeine and sugar), and being present (sometimes we have to feel the emotions of the past for hours or a day or whatnot of funk to bring them from unconsciousness to consciousness and be capable of being more present = more awake = life = light). That’s from adding a few poses in the morning and at night and perhaps a few during the day on the grass, with it sticking between my toes. If you missed week 1, no worries. Add a few veggies and poses and you’ll be golden!

The first tenet of Rebel Evolve: Katarsis is Yoga. What I mean by yoga is rebel evolving your viewpoint on moving your body (exercising) and resting (repose). So let’s look at a handful of lies we’ve been buying into regarding this said movement and repose. What we are looking to do is shift these misconceptions and cleanse them from our system. In doing so, we can live lives that are much closer to truth.
Why “Rebel Evolve”? Well, we are rebelling against our beliefs and evolving them into Truth that is closer to that of reality. When we rebel, we throw out what is not working. When we evolve, we shift our paradigm to benefit us in a greater capacity. It’s a beautiful, on-going process to bask in throughout our lives.
Let’s look at movement. Often we think of movement as what we do to keep our physical bodies healthy. 30 minutes a day, they say. Get that body moving! Yet what if 30-minutes a day you unthinkingly exercised, say lifting weights or walking on your lunch with a friend? Yet during that time you aren’t connecting? Connecting to your soul, to your true self.
So ask yourself the following:
• Why am I exercising?
• What do I think about while exercising?
• What do I believe exercise is all about?
• Who am I exercising for?
These questions, if answered with honesty, can guide you to Truth within you. Perhaps you will discover that you have an innate desire to begin a yoga practice, either in a class setting or at home. Maybe you will realize that during your movement throughout the day you aren’t checking in with yourself. And that’s okay. This post is about going back to that practice…of listening to the Truth inside of you.
I recommend finding one pose on YouTube and doing it each day upon rising and another, more calming pose at night. Yoga is really about connecting to your true self. About listening to the quiet voice within you and connecting to that energy, both your own and that of the collective consciousness. You can do the same pose each day and night or switch it up however you would like.
The Truth that we are going for isn’t in the pose necessarily (although I do believe each pose can hold its own energy and effect you positively to a greater degree at various times throughout your life). It’s the deep listening that comes along with it. This is a 4-minute lifestyle shift that will have a tremendous effect on your health. This simple embracing of movement has the capacity to encourage many healthy shifts in addition–let’s start with action!
As you reframe your views on movement, shift those on rest as well. Sleeping is intentioned to be repose for the trinity–the physical body, mind, and spirit. To reside in that trinity during waking hours, you must give yourself space to have 7-8 hours of as calming sleep at all possible.
• What am I doing to create a sleeping space for myself?
• Do I find my room/bed calming, comfortable, and inviting?
• Am I participating in calming activities right before bed?
• Am I dimming the lights, drinking decaf tea, and easing into it?
• Am I drinking caffeine after two pm?
As a mother of two young children–one of which is teething–I know how important a repose practice is for the wellbeing of my physical body as well as my capacity for an overflow of love the following day. Some nights are better than others, yet I still maintain healthy habits to foster the best possible sleep.
“So, Jenny,” you ask, “What’s the point of all this? Why should I practice the yoga of movement and repose?”
Great question! To love yourself!! That is was and always has been the point. The more you shift your beliefs by asking questions through internal inquiry, the more you will receive the Truth you are looking for! The more you are loving yourself!

P.S. Don’t forget to be grateful for exactly where you’re at!

Rebel Evolve: Katarsis is a seven-week free Online Course. Join me and others as we explore seven weeks of fostering a healthy lifestyle. Beginning tomorrow, we will start by rebel evolving and focusing on Katarsis. By joining me in committing to this practice you are saying “yes” to a lifestyle shift to be in Truth.
Katarsism is the trinity clarification, or “clearing out”, of toxins out of the self and ego to reside in consciousness. In short, cleansing the trinity–body/mind/spirit–to reside in the strength of the soul, which is Truth.
This occurs in 5 purifying steps:
1. Body: Healing of the physical; physical injuries, genetic deficiencies, and dis-ease. See Jesus’ healing of people (blind, deaf, leprosy, dead). Daily practice: Yoga, balancing movement and repose.
2. Strength (Vital Energy): Cleansing of the energy; detoxification of toxins from what you have consumed or breathed/soaked in. Animal products are no longer consumed. This clears out negative vital influence (aka otherness from nature, animals, and other humans). Also, see Jesus casting out demons. Daily practice: Cleanses, Plant-based diet.
3. Mind: The correcting of the mind. This clears out negative mental otherness (aka otherness from other humans, past funk). Daily practice: Prayer, practicing consciousness.
4. Spirit: Katarsis is recognition of the ability to reside in consciousness, or Truth/God/Love. It is acceptance of the authentic self, or soul, as co-creator of your life. Daily practice: meditation, practicing collective consciousness.
5. Soul: Katarsis is bringing yourself to the present moment and residing in the true self, residing in Love.
We will begin this week with committing our day to yoga by simply doing one pose in the morning and one at night. More on that tomorrow. Please join me as we connect to Truth living within us and everyone and everything around us.
The seven weeks are set up to add new habits beginning at the foundation seat of who we are as individuals and collectively to foster, you guessed it, Unity. Together we will move towards Liberated Unity, living a life that incorporates Truth from the trinity within us.
I will be posting every Tuesday for guidance, healing, and encouragement throughout the next seven weeks. Specifically a new aspect of Katarsis will be explored. If you would like one-on-one email support and consulting, please donate any amount by clicking the “Donate Now” button and I will respond with a Welcome Letter within 24 to 48-hours. And please feel free to email me with any questions or comments.
Looking forward to rebel evolving with you.

Nothing in this world can define me. By their very definition, I am connected to this language by verbiage to describe myself. Yet I feel altogether disconnected from it.
Mother, daughter, sister, friend, lover, wife. And the hundreds of other descriptors that have filtered through my life, through my belief system.
I am even tempted to remove “Unity Consultant” from my blog and am wishing it was not even on my business cards.
In this moment, I just am. I am. I am simply me. My birth name does not even define me. Is this what it feels like to be a baby? To be a newborn sitting in your mothers arms? Perhaps even a young one still in utero?
You see, inside of me, I had a belief that I must be externally defined. That something outside of me–in this case, language and acts of doing–must define me and fill the space inside my mind. That those doing’s would lead me on some obscure journey towards something. This “something” I have no idea what it may be. I’ve never seen it, never heard it.
Alas, that’s not true. I’ve seen glimpses. I’ve had moments of allowing myself to embrace this “I am”-ness and just reside in it, however uncomfortable. As soon as it skips away, I beat myself up, tear myself down, remind myself of my false beliefs, et cetera et cetera et cetera. I fall into the conditioned ego self again.
I have seen it. I have heard it. I know this feeling, this thought pattern, this physical calmness, this connection. Peace, peace, peace, peace. Love, love, love, love.
Do you know what I did today while fighting against this process with all of my being (my ego would not have it!!)? I realized that I equate all transformative growth to: Pain. I could connect every belief in my entire being back to pain. Every bit of doing, for that matter as well.
“Is it painful? Good. I’ll grow. I love growth,” I’d say to myself.
This concept, belief system, is sprinkled throughout my adult life.
It is so deeply entrenched that I am holding onto it with every last bit of my ego. If I do not have this belief, I really have nothing. How painful/growing the experience will be is my ultimate deciding factor in any decision…the two completely intertwined in my mind so closely that I cannot see/hear the difference.
Although I can honestly say it is the scariest thing to admit, I am freaking out right now that I may very well have just figured out how to bestow freedom upon myself. That is to allow myself to live in a higher state of consciousness. Or for those folks of you out there who prefer more down to earth language: I think I might have just found my key to happiness. And I’m certain you will find the same.
Wishing you love,

How does one remain in a state of higher consciousness? This question has vexed me over the past couple months. It was only when I let go and entered into a state of chosen silence that I began to understand.
When I have transformative moments in consciousness, I remain in a peaceful state of consciousness if I let go of what was learned immediately. If I hold onto it, I slip into an ego state. In my ego state, I become depressed, irritated, fatigued, restless, etc. I discovered this lesson when I received that I should go to graduate school in December. I then gripped the idea in my fist and became severely depressed and tossed by the waves of the sea of life. I became more isolated, stubborn, and dysfunctional in my conditioned patterns and reactions to life.
“What have I done? What did I do?” I could not figure it out on my own accord until seven weeks had passed and a dream came to me.
This dream brought me peace. Three days later, I “rose from the dead”. During the course of the day, I came to realize: a higher state of consciousness is achieved when being and doing are simultaneously let go of and only silence remains. This is the state in which I choose to stay. It is my heaven, my sanctuary on earth.
In a higher state of consciousness, I:
• Act from a place of utter truth, truth in the Self and truth with the collective (Unity)
• Believe in utter truth; no judgments are made from false perceptions of the self or collective
• Think utter truth; thoughts flow more slowly and when necessary, stillness can be arrived at with a thought, meditation/mindfulness is not a struggle
• Expression is utter truth in the present moment; I reflect my truth like a mirror in the moment I am in
This state is slipped into like that of slipping into your favorite outfit. You don’t think about it nor is it really planned. You just be and do, because it is what comes naturally.
You do not feel pressured to perform, have a plan, make a statement, move forward, act accordingly, save the planet, love. You just be and do.
A higher state of consciousness for me is basking in a meditative state. I believe this is what is attempting to be achieved by many. To take the expanse that is the collective consciousness, or Unity, and live in it in Unity with the Self–all parts included.
Whenever I dream, my subconscious reminds me that I am these three: the collective consciousness, the Self, and the ego. I am the trinity. Together we embrace love to empower the self and others. To be and do. It is not by faith or good works, but by residing in the state that is higher consciousness.
When I slip into the ego, it feels as if I am “coming down to earth.” I feel veiled and disconnected from myself. I cannot step back and see my situation because it is as if I am engulfed so deeply in my situation that nothing or no one can ever understand. I am isolation itself. I am all the pains of my physical body. I am all of my vital energy, my emotions. I am all of my thoughts, my thoughts and I are intertwined, we are one.
Yet none of this is truth.
When I transcend all of these beliefs, I am the trinity that is my higher state of consciousness. I am neutral to all that is around me yet completely proactive, empathetic, and intuitive to every present moment. Actions are in flow. Beliefs are brought into alignment with truth. Thoughts are taken captive and aligned with truth. Thoughts do not reflect me. I am not thoughts, thoughts are the way in which I communicate with the self and the collective. Expression is in truth. In this state I am truthfully capable of self healing all aspects of the self: physical, vital/emotional, mental, as well as aligning the self with the spirit and soul. Sri Aurobindo called this the perspective of the psychic being.
Whatever you choose to call it, it is the higher state of consciousness where love is the only thing. Truth, peace, bliss, calmness. All are mirrored reflections of this higher state. Nothing else matters but what you believe to be and do in the present moment. May your dreams guide you to a higher state as they have guided me.
With all my love,

When one dreams, DMT (dimethyltryptamine) floods the brain. DMT, the pineal gland hormone, is actually excreted in moments of flooding the brain with insight in higher states of consciousness. How does this correlate to depression?
If you are living in a ego state (emotional, unmet needs state), you are not allowing DMT to flow through your brain, your pineal, throughout the day. Simply, you are not taking care of your human givens in daily practice to allow for DMT to flow naturally during your waking hours.
What occurs when you do not allow DMT, or higher state of consciousness, to flow during the day? That is, what happens when you stop flow? Two main results occur: you enter into a depressed state during waking hours and a flooded DMT state during sleeping hours.
This cycle, which is commonly called “depression”, will occur until you choose to stop it. There are many approaches one can take to do so. Here’s a few ideas to get you started:
-Believe that depression is something you can throw off as easily as you put on. It is NOT you.
-Look at your current diet; add in more plant based foods and remove toxic, processed foods
-Remove chemical based cleaning products
-Drink half of your body weight in ounces of water
-Stop drinking caffeine or any other substances that cause a “high” or dehydrate you
-Meet with a trusted friend, take a walk, have a bath, meditate, etc. That is, reflect back on who you are (You know who you are!)
-Do an activity amidst community
-Reading suggestions: How to Lift Depression…Fast (The Human Givens Approach), Pineal Gland and Your Third Eye: Develop Your Higher Self, Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It…I could go on
The goal of releasing depression would be to put balance back in your daily life (speaking of, do you have a daily routine for self-love?) to allow DMT to flow during the day and allow you to get some much needed sleep at night. If you can achieve this, and begin to get out of the rut that is not being in flow in a higher state of consciousness, you can allow your so-called depression to diminish.
Secondarily, this balancing will allow your pineal to get back to what it is best at (after the production of DMT): the production of serotonin and melatonin, which are in charge of numerous activities but particularly your appetite and sleeping patterns.
Obviously, this list is not inclusive. Nor is it the end all, be all, yet there are numerous modalities of which to employ to help get you out the cycle. The healing energies of RET (rapid eye therapy), EFT (emotional freedom technique, also known as Tapping), NET (neuro-emotional technique), Reiki therapy, acupuncture and acupressure, et cetera and so on have all been known to bring the individual into more alignment with the self, thus bring more balance and lessen the strain that is depression.
Of everything, know this: You are not alone. We have all been at the lowest of lows, whether it be brought on by a situation, chemical imbalance, sleep deprivation, or the thousands of reasons in between. Whatever you do, move towards community. Towards someone you love. Towards unity.
In doing so, you will be moving towards your human given needs being met. By having these needs met, even if it’s as simple as food, water, sleep, and love, you can move towards wholeness and unity with yourself. When you feel unity with yourself, you are being in flow. Flow is peace, bliss, and joy. Flow is that DMT state that we call consciousness. Consciousness is the goal because it is truth and it is, by far, the most beautiful state of being to be in. It is a daily practice, a daily resonance.
I of all people know that depression comes swiftly and can be a daily (and especially, nightly) struggle. You and I are in this together. Even though some may feel sanctimoniously high above it, we are all capable of suicide. It is a simple slip of the thoughts, letting them speed past you. If you are having struggles, please seek truth in any way you see fit. Therapists, counselors, chiropractors, psychologists, homeopaths…there are so many options out there. If you are suicidal, please know that your life is extremely important in this pinnacle moment in time. Make one phone call, reach out to one person, there is hope.
This post is dedicated to my dear friend who lost her brother last week. You know who you are. He will be missed.
With all my love,
Please share if this post touched or helped you in any way. Thank you!

Growing up in a Christian family, I was raised around the concept of sin. My behaviors were categorized as either holy or evil, good or bad. The world was a battleground of angels and demons. Black and white. Right and wrong. Sick and well. Catholics and Christians. Democrats and Republicans. Homeschoolers and public schoolers. Church-goers and non-church-goers. Hanukah and Christmas. Rich and poor. Eastern ways and western civilization.
As you will note after the first few, my head was filled with dichotomies. For every one thing, there had to be its opposite, I concluded. You have to be one thing and no others. You cannot mix. There is no integration of any part of life, truth, spirituality, growth, hope, character, etc. This is what my shame-based, fear-based upbringing had me to believe whether it was verbalized or not.
And late one evening after working this dichotomized life commandment out a month or so earlier, I gained revelatory insight in the concept that we call “generational sin.”
Generational is simply carried, or handed down. Parents pass down both their good and their bad qualities. Why? Because they are one. There is purpose behind both. It is evolutionary in reasoning. The Torah clearly states that generational “sin” is passed 7 generations until it is broken. This clearly implies that the “sin” cycle is approximately a hundred years, more or less. This affirms that evolution evolves more quickly every hundred years or so.
Sin in this context is conditioning, or other-than-self ego nonchoices by the individual. Rather than making a conscious choice, the person collapses on the same pattern of no thinking (reacting, not responding) instead of the Open Self or Psychic Being/Conscious response.
A theory of conditioning vs. evolving goes like this: There are two children, one boy and one girl. The boy is born first and the girl is born second. The boy is raised to believe that he cannot think, feel, or act like he wants to, he must behave in the “right” way. That is, that his true self (the open self at birth) is wrong. The daughter is born and is treated with a little more leniency. She grows up to believe there might be a “right” way, but she still doesn’t care, etc.
As he grows up, he views the world as unchanging. Evolution is only on the surface, not deep within. It’s too hard for him to view life differently than how he has been conditioned to believe. The daughter however loves change. Transcendent changes make sense, fundamental creative flows freely, life is good after much transformative inner work. This is not a new story. These are not new lines. In fact, it’s the same old story that passes down sin and truth generation after generation.
Because their mom is the second born evolver. And their dad is a first born nonchanger. Their mom’s mom is a second born evolver and her dad is a no changer. Their dads mom is a second born changer and his dad is a first born nonchanger. This extends back for even generations until evolution occurs. The daughter above has two children. Prior to having children, she works through her painful past experiences and gains transformational insight.
As she raises her children, she allows both of them to think their own thoughts, feel their own feelings, and express themselves how they see fit. She does not attempt to control their “doing” or chosen discipline in life. She even goes so far as to help support their soul, spirit, and psychic being by raising them in a neutral truth conscious environment.
That is how we will stop generational sin, also known as generational conditioning. This is the seventh generation. Let’s give the eighth a new beginning, as 8 promises in numerology. New life, new hope, new truth. In Love. Let it continue for seven generations thereafter to begin anew. Let us create Generational Life.
