Becoming The Light, Realize Your True Enlightened Nature

 Wonderful news about my upcoming book!

Precious One,

Hope you are all doing great! Are you embracing this new session of renewal? After many incredible challenges, at last I would love to share with you the very exciting news that my upcoming major book will be officially launched on August 21, 2018. My wonderful publisher, Greenleaf Publishing Group and I have changed the title for many reasons (of what used to be called Wake Up, Baby!). Now the new title is….               

Becoming The Light, Realize Your True Enlightened Nature

How does it resonate to you? Also here in this newsletter is the launching of the official front book cover. We are very excited to share it with you! I wanted to capture a feeling of spirituality, light, serenity and peace, yet powerful and engaging. What is your first impression?

Now we are on a count down for its official launching with approximately only ten months to go. I feel this new title and official front book cover truly reflect the core essence of the content. Soon you will be able to pre-order it in advance. Is that so exciting? This book has been an intense labor of  love and devotion. It took nine years to create it. By the time it will come out, it will be ten years. In order to write a book such as Becoming The Light, one has to experience it.

In a few weeks I will be revealing an enchanting video entitled, Becoming The Light which I narrate my own words (snippet and droplets of wisdom from my book) and also feature one of my music composition. This musical piece is entitled, Invocation to the Goddess of Compassion. I hope in the near future to sing it  which I have composed the lyrics. So please stay tune!

I would love very much to hear your comment, feedback and sharing. And also please share this blog with all your friends and followers on your social media. Together let’s raise the consciousness. Let’s make it happen for the sake of all living beings. Aum Shanti Shanti Aum….

Sending you a garden of light, divine love, grace and blessings,

From my heart to yours….namaste, Devi (Vivianne Nantel)

 

Becoming The Light

We must always start a journey with the first baby step; often fall many times before rising and flying in the light. Spirituality is not something to teach. We all have it inside. In many ways everyone can be a teacher. We can only awake our divinity. The only true obstacle in life is the mind. When we realize this… we set ourself free! We create our karma with our thoughts, words and actions. Like a music composer, the personal song we compose is either a cacophony or a melody, it depends on us.

Feeling a sense of belonging can become a grand portal to knowing our true being, realizing there is only One. Belonging is vital for reconnecting with the Divine within us. The only boundary between our mastery and our dreams is us. That conditioned and brained-washed personality people do accumulate over the decades can cause the most intense misery and sufferings. Are you experiencing your blissfulness yet? If not, what are you waiting for? A fragrant and beautiful flower is always born from filth ….the same as genuine and true success is born out of adversities.

Deep silence is hearing and feeling with all the particles of our being in the ultimate ecstatic state of oneness. Listening is not just hearing with our ears. Listening is hearing with our heart, our spirit. Every particle of our being must be engaged. Every form has a unique sound, yet this whole creation is chanting a universal song. Have you heard its melody calling, vibrating within you? Don’t wait until your last breath. The time is now! Noble silence is not just near absence of words. It is a profound stillness, a silence from within. No agendas, no thoughts, no judgments or assumptions arose. Loose yourself in an oasis of tranquility, be just a piece of life breathing in and out in the oneness of existence. If you encounter a storm along your journey, like a bamboo in a hurricane, you bend with resiliency, strength, grace and dignity without breaking. As long as there is a split between two entities, we will experience duality, exclusiveness, and hierarchy. There is only ONE. Our most important triumph is to allow our true nature to lead the way. Consciously we must face our inner battle.

Only within the depth of our inner shrine can we know and experience the truth. Vulnerability is essential to experience a dimension of reality beyond the physical realm. One must break free from the gateway of resistance and logic to experience the light. The distinction between ignorance and inner- knowing is just a glimpse of change in our perception, our stillness and ease.

The image you hold of yourself has the power to shape your course of actions and destiny, ultimately determine your happiness, success, and inner well-being. See and realize within the mirror of your being that you are divine. You will begin to transform and awake. Divine power is within all of us. Even power is an illusion. Our ultimate nature is naturally powerful because of its true Divine essence. Every moment we have the inner power to experience our true nature and choose through our actions, words and thoughts. Why lock oneself into a fabricated jail? Smile and breath….. The entire universe belongs to you my dear!Abandon yourself to the boundlessness of existence to tap into the depth of your true nature.

Surrender is not submission. It is the grand empowerment of our own inner-master by dropping the mind and ego with all its resistances and life-accumulations. Complete surrender is the ultimate healer, the magic of living in serenity and blissfulness. Only then you will fly beyond the blue sky. In the state of surrendering, of abandoning oneself, you have already won the victory because a fragrance of equanimity and magnanimity will exude from you like a blossoming garden. Surrendering begets expansion of consciousness.

Self-realization is realizing there is no self. The whole of existence is One being breathing. Our teacher is everywhere…in a bee, a cat, a grazing deer, a cow, a blossoming jasmine flower, the waves of the ocean, the raindrop, the ephemeral morning dew, the fruit trees, the sun radiating upon Mother earth. The eternal book of nature has so much to teach us. The more awakened, the more we experience the Oneness of this precious existence and become One with the Supreme Divine Lover, the more universal responsibility we have toward all living beings’ well-being and happiness. It is all the same energy. The more we experience our ultimate nature, the more we become an instrument and expression of beauty and loving compassion. Enlightenment is boundless, like the wind in the blue sky, and the beautiful flower in full bloom. Everyone can enjoy and benefit from its intoxicating fragrance. You need only be receptive and open to feel it.

The essence of wisdom is always timeless, universal and expansive. There is only one truth, one source of creation manifesting in billions of different forms. Have you noticed when you hear the truth, it resonates within the shrine of your being? It is extremely important to hold a beautiful vision for Mother Earth. The power of genuine love and compassion is infinite and unconditional when it flows from a pure heart. Together we can transform our world into a peaceful, loving and harmonious planet regardless of our gender, religious, socio-economic and ethic backgrounds. Giving back to all living beings in whatever way we can begets a wealth of joy and grace in our life. Is your heart overflowing with gratitude and compassion in actions? If not, have you wondered why? It seems religions create division and separation among people. Yet just walking the path of loving compassion is enough to transform anyone.

Until you desperately long to know and seek the truth, it will never be revealed to a believer, only to a seeker. We cannot win with a whip, only with rose petals. Even if we lose in love, there is always victory. A victory won out of selfishness, out of violence, out of greed and ego is a tremendous loss for that individual, humanity and future generations. Together let’s raise the consciousness and unite the world by One spirit, One heart and One breath. Be the light, be love, be compassion– it is our true nature. True healing emerges from expanding consciousness, and it transforms your being. The more your consciousness expands, the more you blossom.

When genuine love is present, it can never go away. It is eternal and boundless. Genuine love is just there like the sun radiating all over the planet, and all living beings. Its rays emanate without discrimination, without asking for anything in return. When we are in a state of Divine love, physical boundaries melt away. We expand and stretch that love to all living beings . . . to infinity. Divine Love is our very nature. Where there is divine love, there is compassion in actions. It needs to be experienced, expressed. We have wings to soar. Fall in love with Divine love and you become free.

Has anyone told you lately how beautiful and precious you are to all living beings? Close your eyes, breathe in and feel…. discover within your inner cave all the splendors of your true divine nature. Eternal bliss is our very essence. Inner beauty is realizing the oneness of existence. That is to be in union, in a state of YOGA! When our heart overflows with gratitude and divine love the whole universe dances with us. Realize…..you are a unique wave in the Divine Ocean of love.

I look very much forward to read your comments. Sending you a garden of divine love, grace and blessings, Devi (Vivianne Nantel)

Sacred Love Relationship

valentines day on the beach

Sacred Love Relationship

There is a prodigious difference between true sacred intimate love and a domesticated love relationship with attachment and bondage. In true profound love, there is no attempt to control or manipulate another individual, no entanglement between the lover and beloved one. It is a sacred relationship dedicated to support each other’s growth on all levels and evolution on the spiritual path. We want only the very best and highest for the beloved. We do not harbor destructive, negative feelings. In true sacred love, we are able to let go, uniting on a very profound spiritual level. This love can transcend to Divine love, a sacred relationship.

In a sacred loving relationship, genuine love stems from a very deep spiritual, mystical and energetic connection. It is one of the most intimate and beautiful connections because the intimacy being created and experienced is far beyond the physical realm. It also touches all aspects of our beings: physical, emotional, mental, psychological, existential, spiritual and energetic levels. This profound love is not based on any conditions. The sacred loving relationship crosses all societal boundaries such as age, religious and spiritual traditions, socio-economic backgrounds and creeds. This profound love is Divine and mystical because it is born from our true state of being and longing for the ultimate truth.

For most couples their intimate love relationship is contractual and focuses more on the physical and on a “take away.” If you do something for me, I will give something back to you…and keep on loving you, always based on conscious or unconscious conditions. It is subtle. Yes, we all have some needs to fulfill in intimate relationship. Yet a sacred loving relationship will naturally and organically attend to these needs, though it is not a requirement. Sacred love relationships lie within the inner power of the dynamic between the lover and the beloved, allowing each to abandon themselves completely in the loving, surrendering spiritual process of their relationship and be transcended in all. The connection is so very powerful, profound, mystical and supreme it is as if their hearts beat as ONE. Their love will pervade no matter what and will overcome all obstacles, from passion to compassion ….from compassion to ultimate passion.

When two individuals, who are sincere seekers on the spiritual path, form and embark on a sacred loving relationship, detachment can be one its most precious qualities. In detachment there is total abandonment and surrender of self, interdependence, and devotion toward one another. There is no grasping, jealousy, lust, insecurity, or envy ..….only a grand sense of freedom to express the most beautiful and precious passionate and blissful expression of deep expanded love by embracing the beloved as well as all living beings and life. Detachment does not remove or create a distance or separation between the loving couple. To the contrary, detachment allows a greater depth of freedom, trust, intimacy, expansion of consciousness, inclusiveness, awareness, acceptance, interdependence, growth, evolution and intensity between them. There is nothing greater than a sacred loving relationship when one is longing to be in a loving intimate relationship.…another powerful gateway to the Divine, to the Creator…. to liberation. A sacred loving relationship is all about self-actualization, self-realization and liberation for the sake of well-being and happiness for all living beings.

Please share your thoughts and feelings…..Very much looking forward to read your comments.

Codependency versus interdependency in love relationship

Codependency versus interdependency in love relationship

When we talk about love, it is inevitable the subject of codependency and interdependency arise. This relatively new term, codependency, was coined a few decades ago. Since this topic is vast and I am not a professional psychologist, I will share only what seems pertinent for the sake of awareness.
The learned compulsive behavior called codependency is one of the gravest malaises of our century. Codependency makes it harder for people to unleash their true nature, causing great suffering and pain. It has surely been around forever, but we were unable to identify it.
When I was a young girl, I thought humankind failed to look inward for their spiritual power. I wondered why most progress was manifested outward in the world in such areas as spacecraft, computers and automobiles. I used to imagine how it would be to discover the power within, these ancient frontiers of exploration to other dimensions. I did not know how, but finding the pathway fascinated me.
Through research and observation, I discovered there are many definitions of codependency, but all of them come down to one thing…an addictive relationship that develops from learned behaviors and conditioned responses, causing the individual to hold dysfunctional boundaries. The idea of codependency was first used to explain responses from those who lived with an alcohol or drug abuser. However, over time this notion expanded to embrace all unhealthy, dysfunctional relationships. Today it includes anyone who has learned and acquired maladaptive behaviors to survive great emotional pain. These circumstances can arise from being subjected, within the family or social group, to drug dependency, chronic mental or physical illness, physical and emotional abuse, divorce, suicide, sexual abuse and rape, violence or toxic environment. It is the byproduct of the conditioned response to survive traumatic stress.
Codependency is also widely used to describe people with similar patterns in their romantic or other personal relationships. Today codependency describes a dysfunctional pattern of behaving, coping, surviving, and problem solving which develops when the family or society of origin has used rigid and unhealthy rules and actions to influence behavior.
According to the country’s oldest and largest nonprofit organization addressing aspects of mental health and mental illness, Mental Health America says, “Codependency is a learned behavior that can be passed down from one generation to another. It is an emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. It is also known as “relationship addiction” because people with codependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. The disorder was first identified about ten years ago as the result of years of studying interpersonal relationships in families of alcoholics. Codependent behavior is learned by watching and imitating other family members who display this type of behavior.”
This emotional and behavioral condition can affect anyone, a parent, friend, sibling, lover, spouse, or child who has been emotionally or physically abused and neglected during childhood and adolescence. Codependency can be hard to detect, especially in oneself. Some relationships can stir codependency in an individual if one is not completely healed from the ghosts of the past.
Being codependent does not mean individuals don’t love one another. Contrarily, they may love each other deeply, but don’t know how to behave and interact in a healthy way. One or both of the individual may unconsciously sabotage the relationship so it becomes complex, draining, and painful as the participants watch it deteriorate before their eyes. Codependence leads you to deal in unhealthy ways with others, become too dependent at all levels, obsess and live through your significant others.
A person who suffers from codependency tends to become involved in toxic and painful relationships, enabling the individual to reenact their learned role and familiar dysfunctional behaviors in the new relationship. A codependent person may assume an overly passive or excessively care-taking manner, which also affects the relationship negatively. In many cases, codependency can lead to ending the relationship, to divorce, to severe depression and even suicide. It does not have to be that way. Both individuals can heal, grow, and blossom together.

I look very much forward to hearing your comments and sharing. Please share this post with all your friends on social media. This short article is part 1 of a series of two blogs. Next week I will post the second part focusing more on the spiritual aspect.
