I’m happy to say I found my courage hat, and have 2 pictures at Linnaea’s Cafe, San Luis Obispo in the December show: “Hang it All 2017”.
Just kidding..sort of! I don’t really think the whole thing is about me, but it sure worked to get my attention!
Ok, here’s what happened: I have been thinking that it’s ok for me to just be quiet now; I don’t need to be a leader anymore. Just a couple days ago, I told the Universe that if it was important for me to step up again as a leader, I needed a very clear sign. And, guess what, I got it loud and clear! Time to step up in new ways to hold the energy I want to have and to be in the world.
Sorry….I didn’t mean to create so much drama! It’s hard to know what’s up….and I know there is a divine plan.
My inner voice is hollering: “It’s just another portal!!” I am going to use the election of a person who does not match my values as a wake-up call. I pledge to dive deep into my soul and find the ways I can best support all of us in having the life of our dreams. I don’t know yet what that means, but it is unfolding as I write this. In the meantime, I will stay in Love, project Light, be responsible for my own energy and affirm the Oneness of all that is. Today, I will paint these feelings in order to transmute them; I will use the crystal bowls to raise my vibration, and to clear old patterns that I no longer choose to embody. Stay tuned, video/audio recordings/photos might happen….
This morning when I woke up, I found a link to Marianne Williamson’s live feed from sometime during the night. Thank you, Marianne, for being such a wise woman!
Love and Light, Elaina
P.S. Photos are from my Bali adventure
This Bali adventure has surely had its moments. Some very blissful, and some that weren’t quite what we were hoping for. I have been entertained, frustrated and enlightened by seeing all the varied responses when it’s NQR (Not Quite Right: my code phrase for “This is NOT what I signed up for!”) On our third day, we had some traveling to do…Over the mountains to our beach eco-resort, Gaia-Oasis.
At first, one of our drivers/vans didn’t show up, so we re-arranged ourselves into 4 vans instead of 5 and it was cozy to say the least. Think tiny vans, not those giant Mom-mobiles in the US. Then the a/c didn’t work (and the windows didn’t roll down) in one van. They had experienced this on a short ride before and it just wasn’t going to work on a 1/2 day trip. Those riding in that van were so poised…they just let it be known they were due for an upgrade. So, all the vans stopped while we waited for a better Van to arrive.
As we waited, it was hot and humid, and the alley didn’t offer the best views in Ubud. Some people complained. Others headed out for cold beverages. Still others got to know each other. Now we knew why there was a clause that we promised to go with the flow…in the agreement we signed for this trip! The combination of “how it is in Bali” and Mercury being retrograde promised some interesting logistics. I loved watching the people who found the middle ground: those who stated their needs and trusted they would be taken care of. Not victims, not making a scene, just holding the energy of the experience they desire. Thank you for modeling that for me. I hope I can have that much grace under stress!
As the day continued, we traveled over mountain roads, and the Balinese form of driving with lots of motorbikes, trucks, and Vans on very narrow roads, leaving us with the options to surrender and trust or to be uptight and scared. I heard later that some vans sang the whole day, others laughed. It was truly a bonding experience!
It turned out that our travel day was also a holiday in Bali where apparently the entire population traveled to Temples. We saw families of up to 5 on a motorbike, often without helmets. (Sorry, no pictures that I can find so far…) It was a challenge not to project our values onto them. I sidestepped this by imagining I was from another world, learning the customs of Bali! This attitude continues to help me, as I am not used to traveling in third world countries, and there is a lot I’d rather not see here.
So I focus on that which I want to see, and hold the energy template of Bali Bliss inside of me, in order to attract more of what I want. And by the way, it was SO worth it! We had the privilege of receiving of receiving a traditional Balinese blessing from a local priest as the full moon rose behind the temple!!
Here I am with Jody and “our” priest at Pura Besakih, the Mother Temple. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pura_Besakih
What particularly annoying situation can you use to practice your “Law of Attraction” skills today? Please share so we can all be inspired by your creative approach!

A mellow stream/canyon hike….that turned out to be quite an adventure! Hidden Canyon, Guwang, Bali. The pictures say it all!
A nice, serene, sacred canyon? Ha! The water was higher than our driver had ever seen it. But we were so brave!
So grateful for my new water shoes and mywaterproof camera! The best ideas I’ve had lately. See that rope? Where there were no ropes, we had strong local guides. Plenty of adrenaline!
I know that one’s blurry, but you get the idea.
Then, just to complete the Indiana Jones motif, we played with snakes!
Trekking through the rice, sweet potato, sugar cane and chili fields. Talking to the animals at the “mini zoo” in the village of Guwang, keepers of Hidden Canyon. Who knew this was what I would be doing in Bali???
I love Floating Leaf! Once I arrived here on Oct. 2, Day 18 of this Bali adventure, I began to relax. I feel so at home here. I guess the point of traveling is supposed to be getting out of your comfort zone..but there seems to be a lot to be said for finding those places, people, energies that feel “Just Right”. My room is called:
Had to lookup the definition: Saraswati (Sanskrit: सरस्वती, Sarasvatī) is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning. She is a part of the trinity (Tridevi) of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. All the three forms help the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva to create, maintain and regenerate-recycle the Universe respectively.
Saraswati – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
And the synchronicities continue. All over Bali, offering baskets are put out to bring in good vibes, and I’ve been thinking that I’d really like to learn how to are them. Guess what is on the schedule for the afternoon…
. So much fun to create. Thank you Mikaku and Putu (the Cocreators) for bringing suchahigh vibration to this amazing haven! http://Balifloatingleaf.com
Bali Bliss, end of week 1. (On a spiritual journey with Larisa Stow in Bali, in case you missed the 411!) Hours of chanting and kundalini yoga every day. Ancient Temples and the amazing heart energy of Bali. 3 massages in my first week here. So much support for letting go of limiting ideas and stepping more fully into who I am!
And the water. Oh, the water. The ocean is calm and supporting.The Balinese as a culture recognize the sacredness of all that is. The signs say “Holy Waterfall”, “Holy Spring”. Every home has its own temple. The land is womb-like. The people: smiles that melt me, such a loving culture!
I set out to release all the baggage I have accumulated so that I can be ready for the next projects, workshops and books that want to come through me. This morning I brought through a heart song for our group. And sobbed after. Tears of joy; feeling such a pure and direct connection to Spirit.
Cried through half of the plane ride over. On Fall Equinox we did a ceremony of releasing all the “dragons and demons” that hard the cave of all we are meant to manifest and create, at a very old Buddhist Temple. Now I feel raw and open (in a beautiful, blissful way). I wish I had recorded the sound that came through today; but Spirit assures me there is lots more to come!! I am so excited about sharing this new level of sound. And I am gathering courage to share it in a much larger way. Stay tuned with me for how that will manifest!
I feel all the love from everyone following my FB posts, and I am SO appreciative. Your energy feeds me in the moments when it gets hard. I heard myself say this morning that there is no song without an audience. The group here is an amazing container, and the rest of you are the deeper and wider womb that is holding this new manifestation. I love you!
On a practical note: Pictures easier to post on FB, so check there. (Facebook.com\ElainaGeltner). Communication system here is still a bit behind the US. Best way to share your thoughts is on FB; personal notes via email. I will get all messages when I am connected to wifi; when it is available. Texting doesn’t work all that well. You know how I LOVE to communicate…and I am learning to navigate the technology that allows me to do it from across the world!
Tomorrow I head off to Bali with Larisa Stow, my friend Delia and 16 other friends-to-meet. For the last few days, I’ve been getting “bliss bumps”. Kind of like goose bumps, but WAY better! We will be chanting our way through the chakras, in the temples of Bali. I am so honored to be taking this journey…a fulfillment of a long-time dream. Y’know, I don’t relish the traveling part, but the YES for this trip overcame my reticence to spend all that time on a plane. In my quest to transform it all into an evolutionary experience, there have been plenty of opportunities. The packing, the dilemma of what shoes to take, the gathering of all my homeopathic and herbal remedies, getting all the flight info and other paperwork together. Since I said yes last November, the process has been working behind the scenes. Just like I always say: “The workshop begins as soon as you commit”.
The preparation has been amazing. Just in the last week, I have publicly posted our first 3 YouTube Videos (see ’em here), scheduled our first workshop in 2 1/2 years, sent out the book proposal for BreakThru to Your Heart’s Desire (blogs about that), and launched my new website ElainaGeltner.com! All those things have been in the works for a long time, so when one of my mentors told me that the time is right to complete all those projects that have been laying around, I connected with that energy, and the stars lined up.
So now, I’m off to Bali. I’ve had some beautiful downloads about bringing back new activation technology to share with clients, writing about my experiences and chanting with Larisa. This morning I was on the trip’s private Facebook group, and discovered one of the group members is a travel writer. Hmmm….I wonder what the Universe has in mind here?
I promise to blog, or at least post pictures and captions, so stay tuned to my Facebook page, and please see me having the courage to fully surrender to my highest good.
Thanks for all you are and all you do!
I love to work with the HighHeart. It’s an “extra” chakra beyond the 7 chakras that many people discuss. This is where the SoulPath is activated and expressed. Opening and activating this chakra is a key element of the SoulPath Alignment process, calibrating your alignment with your SoulPath, and increasing the amount of energy that flows there. (How and why it might be shut down is a whole other discussion.)
The HighHeart is located between the 4th (Heart) Chakra and the 5th (Throat) Chakra, on the sternum, just below the collarbones. As with other chakras, it’s right at the midline of the body. Some sound healers subscribe to the idea that particular notes (frequencies) correspond to each chakra. From this perspective, F# is your note! So the tones of an F# crystal bowl would do the trick. You can also get your phone to play an F#, play it on a piano or sing it. If you can aim the tone at the chakra (like an F# didgeridoo or cupping your hands and directing the vocal tone), you might find it helpful. You can lay on the floor while someone else plays the bowl on the floor, and you can feel the frequency vibrate your body.
You can also play with color (Teal) and essential oils (try marjoram or tangerine).
Since we are a holistic, interconnected system, it’s my observation that there are LOTS of different frequencies that can affect the High Heart. For example, if someone is ungrounded, directing sounds (perhaps a C) at the root chakra could help. Or if they are afraid to fully express themselves and their gifts, F# or G directed at the throat chakra might just be the key (pun intended!).
I’n curious to see what your experiments reveal. Please comment!
I did it! The rough draft is done. Sorry….it’s not ready to be read yet. I have lots of fine-tuning to do, but the months of gathering information from all the class notes and handouts is complete. I still need to gather great stories that are examples of how the concepts have been used to create BreakThru in real life. Now I am taking a break to focus on a couple other projects and get ready to travel! The book proposal is next…Yay!!
