Can We Truly Live As Free Spirits – While Financially Depending On Others

3by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
during the last years of running my blog, I often shared with you little stories from my soul chosen hometown San Marcos La Laguna, in Solola, Guatemala. Some of you might remember that San Marcos LL is not only a simple little indigenous town in the magical highlands of Guatemala, but also an energy vortex place of this world, where thousands of traveler are passing thru every year to pick up some of the spiritual powers provided by nature.
People who are coming from every corner of the world, and belong to every income group and social class found around the globe. One of the themes over and over again discussed in workshops and teachings, is the topic of everybody needing to take personal self-responsibility when it comes to our financial needs in life.

Marshall Vian Summers invited us in his book “Living the Way of Knowledge“ to remember, that money is here to serve. You do not want to serve it. Money is a resource to be employed. It is here to serve. You do not want to become its servant. What does money serve for you? How do you use money? Do you preserve money and save it for future use? Do you live according to what you need or are you dominated by what you want?
Perhaps you are working too hard in your work in the world because you are requiring more money than you really need. Perhaps you have to work harder in the world because you need more than you have. You must find what is correct for you. However, to be able to find what is correct, you must know what is correct, and you must have the necessary criteria.”

What that means in essence, is that we profoundly need to check our personal core values when it comes to money, and make sure to act on them in our everyday life. A little while ago, I shared this article: “Spirituality And Money – In Balance And Harmony Between Spirit And Matter”, with further helpful advice.
So to lift the theme to higher vibration, the ones might have to shape up and start making their own income, while the others might have to let go of the idea of money as power and security tool and grow some spiritual balls instead! Each of you will know best for themselves, what direction you might be in imbalance with.

Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed.
Gandhi
2 This is an except from the article “I am just a free spirit who is entirely financially dependent on others”, by Andy Porter

I’m a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of guy. I like to hit the open road, go where the wind takes me, and approach every day as an opportunity to strike out on a new adventure. I live life with the attitude that whatever happens happens, and as long as I’ve got air in my lungs, a spring in my step, and someone else’s money in my bank account, I’m good to go.
I guess you could say I’m just a free-wheeling, happy-go-lucky person who’s completely financially reliant on others.

I do what I want, when I want, and depend 100% on friends, family, and acquaintances for my meals and shelter. I don’t like to make plans, you know? That’s just not in my DNA. I’m the kind of guy who’s always up for a cross-country road trip on someone else’s dime. I’m totally cool with letting go, with not knowing where the day will take me. All I know is that I’ll be imposing on acquaintances for sometimes weeks at a time because they’ll feel too uncomfortable to kick me out, and then I won’t be able to leave when they want me to because the check from my sister hasn’t cleared. And that’s enough for me. I’m cool with that. It means I don’t need to rely on anyone but myself and an entire network of people who would rather support me than engage in an awkward conversation about the direction of my life.

And living as a free spirit is about so much more than what I do day to day; it’s a total philosophy of being. I greet each morning with a curious, enthusiastic outlook that embraces life with open arms, a smile on my face and an email to my Dad, asking him to call Verizon because I got a text from them saying I can’t make outgoing calls until he pays the bill. I don’t let anything hold me back—not fear, or social conventions, or the fact that I’m completely financially dependent on others for literally everything that I do.

Sure it is always scary to take full responsibility for our material safety and financial needs but if we do so, we also feel empowered to make all important and life changing decisions free of gravity.
Big Hug and Blessings!
Edith

Within The New Paradigm – Creating A Healthy Enlightened Sexual Relationship

aa
Dear Friends,
about two weeks ago, I shared with you details about the collective cleansing of the first chakra, that took place for us between the last New Moon and the Cancer Full Moon on Christmas Eve. By now, the first insides and effects have arrived on planet earth and, as it had to be expected, one of the collective desires driving us now, is to develop the new sexual relationship paradigm for the Golden Age of Aquarius. Many people feel the need now, to evaluate the personal expression of their sexuality and other physical desires. Looks like more and more people follow their desire, to be an active part in the creation of the divines plan bigger picture. So I found it pleasing, inspiring and perfectly fitting to the changes we are undergoing now, to share this beautiful piece with you.
Enjoy and give it a try yourself!!

From the beginning of mankind, sex has been the most natural way to discover meditation. The endorphin’s released after orgasm instantly send you into a euphoric state of bliss where the mind is no longer achieving, scheming or controlling to demand that the ego meets its goals. Through this orgasmic release a deep state of relaxation is experienced where you find a true feeling of inner peace. The 3 Sacred Sex Secrets are an invitation to expand your mind and liberate your soul from our society’s sexual suppression. If you have any type of sexual abuse from your past, it may be VERY challenging for you to imagine experiencing Enlightened Sex.
I invite you to keep an open mind, for you are about to combine and transcend two of the most controversial topics in the world, “Enlightenment” and “Sex”. This melting and merging of these seemingly opposite contradictory subjects, will open you to discovering the vast free spirit dwelling inside your being. The moment you remove all judgments around what Enlightened Sex looks like, what you have left is an open mind ready to explore the experience of a state of pure bliss. By freeing your mind right now from any assumptions or judgments that arise, you are inviting a great revolution in consciousness. This transformation is a truly spiritual awakening where you can enter every moment, every breath and any relationship in the most Enlightened Intimate way.460How long has Enlightened Sex been practiced on this planet?
In Khajuraho, India, there were over 200 erotic and exotic temples built from 950 AD to 1150 AD. Today, 25 of these ancient erotic temples are still standing and pose as living proof that sacred sexuality has been practiced for well over a thousand years. Each of the outer temple walls contain many carvings of erotic art, pornographic sexual positions, and masturbation. These sexual statues represent the pornographic play that is designed to uncover the divine goddess and god within us. They show us that sex is an intimate spiritual guide to discover the free loving, fully self-expressed, wildly creative divine being is who we truly are.
The statues were not created to convey hideous messages of disgust within you otherwise they would have not been created on temples. They are here to create a bridge between sexuality and the sacred. They awaken that sexual being inside you who can feel sensuality is one doorway to the divine. It is only through the body that we can experience life and discover the experience of God. Without the body there is no life, and no sensuality to taste, touch and feel what this great unification truly is. These temples are living proof that man has been able to find the experience of God through the sensual organs in the body. They enlighten us to this ancient knowledge that we can use every experience we are given in life to enter the Divine.

The 3 Secrets to Enlightened Sex
If you’re open to exploring the sacred sensual spiritual aspects of your being, you are about to dive into the most dynamic expansive healing experience of your life! Through a process of being vulnerable you can reveal what’s holding you back from being present to your beloved. Here, the subtle bodies soften and together you will create a divine experience for yourself and your lover.gesThe 1st Sacred Sex Secret to Enlightened Lovemaking is to learn how to communicate with radical honesty with your partner. This is about extending yourself beyond what you feel is your “comfort zone”. What you cannot talk about is exactly what you need to talk about. If you cannot open up to your beloved, who can you truly open up to? The practice of reaching out to your beloved from your heart, with vulnerability allows the Divine experience to come flooding in. The walls start crumbling down when you choose in each moment to dive deeper into intimacy, and release the over-protecting habit of defending and upholding the ego.

The 2nd Sacred Sex Secret is to let yourself totally dissolve into your partner. Meaning, surrender to them and the amazingly divine connection already between you. Sitting close to each other and doing long periods of eye gazing and slow, soft gentle touching will melt the apparent boundaries between you. Looking beyond their personality into their soul is by far the greatest way to create a long lasting loving relationship. If you do this on a daily basis you can only expect the most amazing relationship in humanity.

The 3rd Sacred Sex Secret is to create the most safe and loving space within yourself and outside of yourself. As within, so is without. So start with choosing to be emotionally, physically and mentally safe to creatively express yourself in ANY way you choose. Now being fully self expressed, there may be some things that may shock your partner at first. This is to be expected and brought to the surface to be recognized, yet not hooked into. Simply honor each other and never hide anything from each other. Be real, and know that deep down you will experience the greatest love, joy and ecstasy by loving, accepting and appreciating yourself totally as you are.

What is Tantra All About?
The ancient Sanskrit word “Tantra” has a very simple definition that means, “a direct experience that is without a book”. Tantra is the oldest and most powerful spiritual practice for creating enlightenment in the world today. It is complete in itself, a way of life where you feel spiritually alive and living each moment to its maximum. When a couple is focused on having a deep intimate connection, they are allowing for the direct experience of the other to enter them. It is through this intimacy that a profound healing occurs. The ego releases its habit of imprisoning you and you are truly free. As this sacred intimate connection deepens, it heals the entire individual, and radiates throughout the community. tantra1Energetically speaking, one whole couple in love and deep intimacy can provide a light of wholeness for the entire community to follow. Tantra is the ultimate exploration of the Divine Presence within yourself and the other. It is a release of your mind and ego into the cosmic orgasm that is happening in the Universe. No other experience comes even remotely close in this world to the levels of bliss, connection and peace with another human being. It is important to know that a Tantric experience does not always have to engage in sexual penetration. An orgasmic Tantra experience can be as simple as a long deep heart felt hug, or gazing into your beloved eyes. It is all about merging with the Divine, the oneness that we are all connected to.

I hope this beautiful article brought you some inspiration, maybe a little bit direction but most of all, joyful curiosity for the creation of a brand new paradigm for the sacred sexuality, that is emerging for humanity now!!
Blessings and Love!

Edith

The Joy Of Traveling Alone As A Woman

noby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
already several times I mentioned to you the beautiful little traveler town San Marcos La Laguna in Guatemala, that my heart calls home. Every year hundreds of people pass by who are following the Maya trails, to get a taste of the special magic our hometown has to offer (it is an energy vortex, where the waves of Lake Atitlan and the winds over the Vulcan’s – called Xocomil – unite all elements into high frequencies for change). Many of the traveler are women, who are traveling alone. When I talked to friends about it I realized, that in western cultures women still think traveling alone is manly a dangerous business – because our culture and social environment tells us so.
But, have you ever asked yourself how much a woman can gain from traveling on her own? How many new encounter one has when traveling alone? How many enlightening moments of inner strength and newly developed courage? This are experiences, that can change ones perspective on life profoundly. Indeed by now science has confirmed, that money spend on making new experiences in life – is rarely regretted. Verses money spend on goods, is a very temporary satisfaction and therefore the impact of joy passes quickly.

Here are some things that change, if you decide to travel on your own:
1.) You will meet tons of new people:
It is simple the nature of traveling alone, to meet new people every single day. When traveling alone our travel pattern change. Most people tend to seek out maybe a hostel or guest house instead of a nice up-class hotel, you might choose when traveling with your partner or friends. Being on the road and having to navigate new countries, culture and maybe even a change in language, can be pretty demanding in times – so it is just natural for a human being to look for help from others. Maybe you find yourself exchanging more words with a stranger to ask for street directions, than you might have talked to strangers in years ;-).. and that is a good thing!!
Just think about it, everyone you met outside your core family was once a stranger!! Once you spend a fun night with people from parts of the world that your parents think are dark and dangerous, people who are from the religion – that in your hometown is seen as the enemy, people who blow your mind with their beauty first – and then you hear they have very opposite political few’s…, you will never be able to go back to your old thought pattern and perceptions. Allow yourself to be inspired by other people stories and sharing, and reach out to what unites you as humans,, and your world will be changed forever!!1_hippie-movement-is-alive-and-well2.) You might develop more flexibility for the flow of life:
When traveling alone and meeting new people, we tend to allow ourselves more freedom in taking in advice and directions from others. Not only can that have a beautiful and long-lasting positive effect on how we co-operate in our relationships, it also leads to changes in plans. You might hear from this amazing, magic place that right now vibrates so purely inside of you that you know, this is where you should be next. That will not only shake up the plans and concepts you might have had about the outcome of your trip, but it will also allow you to align yourself with your divine guidance. To be in the right place, at the right time. Cultural demands have long taken it from women who live in cities, to be naturally connected to our body’s abilities of sensing the rhythms and cycles of life. The feeling for when a wave of birth begins and when it naturally ends. When we travel alone we feel ourselves deeper and are more willing to listen to the needs of our body, mind and soul. And that brings more authenticity and clarity for our everyday life.

3.) You might be re-connected to your soul purpose:
Like I mentioned above, it is helpful to see, that there is a power in “being in the right place – at the right time”, and that is the power that guides us from within – to encounter the next steps of our soul plan. You can not imagine how many stories I heard by now, about how people found connection to the red line in their own life, when they found themselves in a challenging situation while traveling. My own story included! My conscious path of dedication to living a life
guided by my higher-self, started in 1999 when I had quit employment forever and asked myself who I truly am. I was eager for adventure and the wish to learn another language. My decision fell on Mexico, where I learned Spanish (6 years before my inner plan lead me to fulfilling my souls purpose, in the Highlands of Guatemala – a Central American country). While rooming the magical ruins of Palenque, I felt the energy of death present all over the place. I had visions one after the other, from myself in spaces of native and indigenous cultures, I cried through memories of loss and re-birthed myself into the first version – of the person I am today. You see, traveling alone has a lot of the initiating powers of what natives call a “vision quest” – the humans surrender of old ideas and concepts, to a divinely inspired open mind for an ever changing future. ah4.) Which leads us to “overcoming challenging situations” on your own:
There is an immense beauty and strength in being able to co-operate with a partner and live our lives in a shared experience. Especially in this amazing time of change in our collective relationship paradigms, we are eager to be together in oneness. AND the ability to truly “be with someone else” – comes from the ability to truly be with yourself first! It is great to know that your partner has your back – it is even greater to know that “YOU have your back”. Traveling alone might allow you a new level of commitment to “taking good care of yourself”, to truly feel what you need and create strong borders – where you don’t want others to come to close. That are valuable abilities for all of our relationships. And there is nothing more self-empowering than finding yourself in a challenging situation, forced to courageous actions – and overcome your obstacles on your own. This is how Spiritual Warrior are born, so embrace it with all your being ;-)!!!

5. Which leads to realizing abilities and strength, that you always had inside you!
When a woman travels alone, she is reminded of all the small decisions we have to make, so our everyday life runs smoothly. Decisions that normally might be made by the collective of your family, the partner or your friendship circle, now lay wide open in front of you. It is on you and you alone, to make clear choices and than take responsibility for their outcome. That creates a deeper feeling of faith in ourselves and the path we choose to travel. We learn to be better problem solver, when we travel alone. And we might even surprise our-self with one or the other extraordinarily brave, capable and fearless move. When we learn to deeply enjoy our own company and prioritize our own opinion over that of others, an inner freedom settles in that makes space for even more brand new ideas and courageous next steps! The spiral of feeling alive has been set in motion ;-)!wo6.) You may discover that from now on, experience is more important to you than possessions:
Some people think this side effect should come with a warning-sign because indeed, traveling has an addictive character and can make us care much less for material goods. Once you tasted the inspiring air of meeting new people and experiencing things you
never thought of before, you might just have to do it again. These incredible moments are sure to leave an impression inside of you, that whispers to you about more unknown places and unfinished cycles. So the more you travel, spend money on classes you want to take and abilities you want to develop, the more you will prioritize experiences above material goods.
Once you made this powerful realization, there’s no telling how far you might go in developing inner freedom and fearlessness. A woman who realizes how capable she truly is, becomes an example for an independent free spirit in our world. So traveling the world alone can change your life forever, now the question is – do you want that??

I hope you do and one day we meet in the crazy little freak show that San Marcos is, or in any other part of the world!! But where ever you go, I hope traveling will make your life rich of magic and synchronicity and, that it leads you on the path to your true-self! Thank you for making the world a more beautiful place, by being truthful and authentic! 
Blessings and Love!
Edith
