Her apparition smiled back at me from just above the ocean crest, fin moving in rhythm with the undulating waves. Long wavy hair carried by the sweeping wind, glistening golden skin shimmering under Mexican sunbeams. “Yemanja” I sang, “Yemanja.” I continued to place grapes and white rose petals on the offering for her.  The guitar strings harmoniously vibrated as women’s feet danced in circles alongside me.  Their arms lifting to meet the glory of the sky, voices in chorus singing her name, and my heart expanding with each deep ocean air breath.

I first met Yemanja years ago, walking along the California shoreline on a day when I was questioning everything in my life.  With doubt residing on the altar of my heart, she presented in her force, power, and love, inviting an opportunity to move beyond right and wrong, good and bad, and instead to embrace the deeper truth of my heart.

At the time that I first met her, I was having a very human moment… a moment when you stop walking, turn to the ocean, allow the tears to roll down your face, and just let go. With no other foreseeable way forward, I began to pray. And there in the distance (through my gift of sight) appeared this magnificent mermaid looking goddess staring back at me with her radiant vibrancy.  When our eyes met, my heart swelled with a feeling of “all will be well.” Answers rolled in like rhythmic waves crashing on the shore of my soul. It was but a moment, but truly imprinted a compass upon my heart to always move towards my true north.

As the image of her exquisite details began to fade, I did what most modern seers do… I took out my phone and Googled the features of this beautiful sea woman to learn who she was and what she’s about.  Yemanja, also spelled Yemaya or Yemọja, appeared on my search engine as a prominent deity from Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Caribbean religions. She is associated with the ocean, motherhood, fertility, and nurturing. With this confirmation of who I had just had an epiphany with, I paused to welcome her into my conscious field and to offer my permission and consent to be influenced by her gifts.

My sense is that we all have moments that we can look back on and say, “had the sea not parted in that moment,” I wouldn’t be here today. For me, this experience could be categorized with that level of importance and marked a pivotal time of commitment to my life’s path.  After ten years later of walking this path, I met her again on a beach in Mexico  where I was celebrating a friend’s birthday. Her community often celebrates Yemanja, singing her songs, and loving her in co-creative spirit.

Her re-emergence this winter again affirms that I always can trust moving to my true north and is synchronistically aligned with the birth of the Generational Alchemy: Where Magic Meets Manifestation course.  

With every course I teach, I agree to be shaped, changed, and opened by the collective constellation that only a unique cohort of individuals (and their guides) can create. And this course has quite the “pre-field” to it… everything is moving, and everything is rearing its head to be harmoniously aligned with natural flow. We come together to walk each other home and it is often through thresholds and portals of deep transformation that we access the luminosity and possibility of our souls.

The folks that are coming together for this upcoming circle are listening to the deeper pulse of their existence and the consciousness shaping it and have said “YES” to the mystery of their path.  And so have I. 

There are times when our soul and its guides invite us to awaken, move to the edge, and harness the inherited current of our manifesting power to plant and grow the seeds of our dreams. These are moments when unveiling the light of truth is the only choice. If we want to evolve and progress on our path, we must answer the call to expand our capacity to love and be loved. This is where we change the course of our lives and the lives of those we serve and love.

For me, now is the time to embrace my INFINITE, CREATIVE LIFEFORCE and release any form of “doing” that stands between me and the freedom of being, in all its glory.

As we pass this year’s equinox and come into an historic eclipse season, the conditions of your garden matter. The intentions you seeded on the New Year are sprouting this spring to give you a fresh start, free from the burdens and limitations of the past.

As you prepare to begin anew, join an inspiring, pulsing community of pattern breaking souls who are ready to co-create wildly with the multidimensional field.

The Generational Alchemy course weaves systemic constellations, intuitive perception, experiential process, intentional focus, natural laws, and ancestral healing to empower you and your ideas and support you to bring them into manifestation. Generational Alchemy is the key to unlock a new story, filled by the magic, mysticism, and brilliance that is you.

Fear may rise up as you hear the call and lift the veil; it is the remembrance in your bones of times when voices were muffled, freedom stolen or the path trampled. It is the encoded history of prior lifetimes of being burned, hung, tortured, or sacrificed. Fear may arise, but it is not here to be your guide. It is here to remind you that you are not alone. You have done this before. And this is the time to live as the wayshower in the presence of your conditioned ancestors – the ones who learned to agree with the cultural and oppressive norms to survive.

Trusting our intuition, following its guidance, and agreeing to the path it presents carries us towards places and experiences that serve as initiations or pivotal moments that bring us fully to life. The trail we blaze when responding to synchronicities or direct messages from beyond is laced like a starry sky with elemental and other-worldly resources to support and nourish us. I have found that the more I follow the breadcrumbs, the stronger my relationship to myself, my soul, my lineage, and my life.

12 Weekly Gatherings Facilitated by Emily Blefeld (Mondays 1:00-3:30pm Eastern)

All gatherings will include systemic experiential process and teaching on practices for conscious alchemy, systemic healing, natural laws, and manifestation practices.

One Private Alchemical Systemic Family Constellation with Emily Blefeld, LICSW

The deep root of your burdens, blocks, and restraints are often inherited and remain alive in the heart of a family or soul lineage for up to seven generations. The systemic approach illuminates and clears these interferences, allowing your heart to open to nourishment from the strongest resources for life’s flourishing and nectar for pleasure, presence, and purpose.

One Subtle Energetic Alignment session with Sarah Rehfuss Bastian, MS

The Subtle Energetic Alignment™(SEA™) process provides insight into the origin of emotions and experiences in the body, psyche, and ancestral lineage that have not yet found closure that prevent you from being in alignment with your goals and intentions. Recognizing and working with these origin points brings balance and creates a potential shift in perception, biofield, physical body, and family system.

Participants are invited to bring their current challenges, questions, or desires. Together we will identify and release patterns or beliefs that keep you from stepping powerfully into your soul’s evolution and life’s purpose.
