Monkey’s Meditation and Mexico ( and a visit from an old friend)!

Updated: October 25, 2016

Monkey’s Meditation and Mexico (and a visit from an old friend)

Dearest wondrous tribe,
I am in Mexico for Dr. Joe Dispenza’s Advanced training sitting here listening to the waves and realizing how fried I am.

I think about the importance of self-care, how I find myself today not knowing what to share in this blog other than my deep gratitude for your eyes meeting my words here on the page.
I don’t take for granted that you come here to read my musings and share in some wisdom and humor.

So if you will allow for this week to be a walking meditation in gratitude. I will invite you to join me wherever you are, no matter the conditions of your life. My internal conditions at the moment are turbulent and in need of settling since I have so many things on the go- Uncharted, getting ready for Oracle School next year, workshops etc etc. but now I have to hand those over to Spirit and be silent and still.

Even if I have a dozen monkeys chattering in my head telling me I am not allowed to rest. I know what will help them settle down. I shall now go find some “head bananas” to feed them sit by the water and re-read one of my favorite books by Deborah Harkness and drift into a story that has nothing to do with anything except to entertain me (and eventually bore them to sleep)

I am an empty well at the moment and am present to be filled.
So off I go to walk and meditate on nothing but gratitude for its own sake before I face plant with my Kindle!

So if your mind has been over run by monkeys what do you do for self care and to lull them to sleep?
After you meditate, what else can you share that works for you?

Ps … just had to share I went for a walk giving myself permission to relax and regroup albeit a bit guilty for not having anything brilliant to share and I was AMAZED by a sign from Spirit that got all my inner monkeys awestruck. Marc was with me and I was beaming with gratitude allowing myself to unwind. And lo and behold one large red dragonfly showed up, buzzed round me and then perched on the seaweed. I kid you not there were NO dragonflies anywhere else the entire morning and the rest of the walk.
I know It showed up to say… “we got this”.
Yup Spirit is everywhere!

I will have lots more to tell you next week!
Love you all!
Colette

      This was just what I needed to hear as i felt the same way and just need to be in silence and let my mind and body rest a while, until new life shows up from nowhere again as it always does.

    OMG! I love your honesty! I love to walk in the park or sit near some water — quietly — but when the weather does not allow, I fall back to my favorite solo activity — a jigsaw puzzle. Something about focusing on finding the right piece allows one part of my brain to focus, while the subconscious part gets still. I may hear myself chatting away in my head, but the puzzle piece hunt somehow becomes the primary activity and the noise quiets down. Hours can go by without a notice.
    I know you will find your peace and I shall send happy yet settling energy your way! Rest up! You are loved and needed!

    Hahahaha. I took your suggestion and went to your FB page and hit Videos. The “featured” video was for April 13, 2015. The cards were EXACTLY the guidance I needed this week to release the old beliefs and stories I have created for myself about lack, magic and my personal power. AWESOME! Thanks for the suggestion. A “NEW” divination tool!

    I go to sleep with Joe Dispenza every night…LOL…I plug him in and off I go to la la land. It has been an interesting couple of weeks. Left my partner of 3.5 years because of a very unhealthy lifestyle that I could not uplift or help him to move out of..so me had to go…New place, new beginnings…Stable, unstable…but it is all good. Good that you are taking care beauty. You work hard in your service to mankind and the self-care is so necessary for you to continue. You are in great hands and energy with Joe. Give him my love and gratitude and always have you surrounded with love and gratitude as well…

    Thank you for permission to DO NOTHING! I am empty present to be filled. My outer world is empty of work (no regular place to go to people to see) and lover/partner (no one to come home to). When I woke up and had no desire to get up I meditated and chose to make it the best “stay in bed” day ever!
    After seeing a Dr for my chest pain I went for a walk and saw a beautiful baby heron… totally uplifted my spirit!

    Dear Colette .. how pleased am I to read that you have allowed yourself to take a break and to simply let the rest of us know it !!! SUPER PLEASED .. Since you teach us all to take excellent care of ourselves, you can lead us best by example .. I am relaxing today before i go to have a few teeth pulled .. by relaxing, i mean tapping and reminding myself that this is wonderful, for my self care .. I am going to this appointment alone, no husband to hold my hand .. in fact i am walking to and from the appointment .. i might run into an oracle too !! thank you for being you xox Lisa

    Oh Colette – PERFECT!!! Your blog post was exactly what I needed to read enroute to a huge week in New York City. Holy Moly – talk about monkey mind. Thank you for the reminder to go find those bananas, take a breath, relax and know Spirit has my back. I’m looking forward to my own self care massage on the 31st when I get back home after what looks like a morning until night whirlwind week of programs and meetings. Be well & enjoy your time with Joe!!!

    I actually do the same as you do when my head is spinning. I read a book. Or I go in the garden barefoot in the grass. That’s great for grounding and rebalancing my energy system with help from mother Earth.

    Enjoy your time in Mexico.

    I’m reading my first book by Louse Hay. It only took me 74 years to get here, but I’m grateful I’m here. The thing that struck me first was “we should get rid of the word SHOULD”.How true is that.I got my first oracle cards last year. It was your Enchanted Map. I’m enjoying that and your newsletters. Just wanted to thank you.

    Wow,dragonflies are always huge for me when they show up. Besides walking and meditation, I find that cooking relaxes me and lets me focus on what I am doing with my hands instead of what my goblin is chattering about in my mind. Since I became a vegan a few years ago, I am experimenting with all kinds of new ways of cooking and find I can lose myself for a whole afternoon and not feel frazzled. On the contrary, I feel complete!

    Hi Colette,
    Even when I am exhausted lately, if the monkeys are going crazy, I have tried to do another thing you say: chop wood, carry water. I was in a 12 step meeting and somebody shared that when they were upset about something they called their sponsor and said that the sponsor asked “Did you make your bed? Did you do the dishes?” and as soon as she did, she started to feel better. So, I have been letting that guide me a bit and I try to do some of the mundane chores and inevitably I start to feel better.
    Thank you for all that you do. You may never know how much you help me.
    Much love and light!

    Funny since arriving here in cancun this week, I have had the pleasure of having a bat fly about 6 inches from my face, a peliquin come very close, and a red dragonfly greet my shoulder. My hubby kevin had an 7or 8 inch grasshopper go for his ankle. Love being greeted except for the bat. I am loving the air and beach. Blessings

    I love it that you’re so stinkin’ human with all of us! I, too, have to turn off my brain/monkeys when they’re driving me crazy with their chatter. When possible, I take a hot bath with epsom salts and lavender oil, read one of my favorite Nora Roberts novels (don’t judge), and sometimes drift off into another realm until the cool water brings me back. I then usually have a better sense of what is real and what is chatter and can get on with my next step, whatever that is. Self care is a tough one when our focus has been on serving others, but you can’t pour from an empty pitcher, so the self care is a critical part of our awakening. Thank you for sharing your struggles with us, in addition to your successes and triumphs! I’m honored to be a part of your tribe. Thank you for not giving up. (heart)

    Hi sparkling, beautiful Collette❤️

    I too am in Mexico, for the past week, enjoying the ocean and walks on the beach. My 3 frieds and I have been meditating, drawing a new mandala each day, and practicing our Jungian dreamwork. I’ll be flying home to Arkansas on Thursday. Even though I will be sad to leave this paradise, I am looking forward to seeing my husband and doggie, I also have the sense that I will be taking more peace, love, beauty and wisdom home with me, than I came here with.

    Thank you for your sharing and much love,
    Janet❤️

    It sounds so wonderful there. Love the sound of waves.

    Self care? I have slept a max of 3 hours a night since May. I decided to see my friend to see what the heck was going on with me. She did a Reiki session. I am now sleeping and the chatter is gone. I’d much rather do a Spiritual treatment on me than a medical. I feel SO awesome!

    Dear Colette, I have asked myself a couple of times before: OMG, how on earth can Colette manage so many things and have so many projects going on at the same time and be on top of everything … does she ever sleep and relax… And on the other hand I can’t even find the time to follow everything that you do… So I am very happy that you gave yourself permission not to write anything brilliant this time, haha, but you still did…. because many of us can relate to having feelings of guilt when we are just “lazy” doing nothing important, clever, or useful. My No1 way of self-care is definitely having a massage and years years ago when I would have one, I would spent most of my 60 minutes lying on the massage bed thinking if I can afford this/do I deserve it. Now I go for a massage regularly, usually for 90 minutes or more. However I can still hear my goblins from time to time, trying to get my attention, but I know now how to keep them at distance – and the most efficient way for me as well is just to sink deep down in the feelings of being grateful. Gratitude is medicine.

    Dragonflies are souls or spirits in animal form. When I made the monthly lecture on New Moon with Crystal Allies Oracle Cards, they told me this week was about Prayer and Spirits Voices. But Prayer (Fulgurite Ally) was the Gift, Spirit Voices (Wind Element Ally) was the Challenge. Fulgurite said if we ask for we will answered, but as you well know, Spirit has his Own Agenda. And has His Voices, and we must take time to listen for them. If we don’t make silence in our lives, Spirit speaks with us the same, but we cannot hear. I have plenty of time to make silence, because I decided to take. I know your life is very busy and mine actually not, excluding my Facebook page. And by the way, I ordered your cards via Amazon. The first deck, Wisdom of Avalon, arrived two days after the others in same order (there were Flowers, Butterflies an Goddesses in them). The second deck, Wisdom of Hiddem Realms, is missing, and deadline has already last from two days. I love your decks and continue using daily via your website, but I think this is a message for you, besides for me. Blessings of Light from Italy.

        Thank you my dear… The deck is still missing (and “Healing with Angels” deck, whose deadline was a day after, too), but I continue using the app on website, and the answers are so amazing. Yesterday in Maya Tzolk’in was Crystal Monkey Day 🙂 and in the evening I explained my two page lectures (I used Wisdom of Hidden Realm at first, and then, because the answer didn’t seemingly match the question, The Enchanted Map) to a client, and suddenly both of them made sense. Sometimes a message is not for us, but for someone else. Angels and guides have a huge sense of humor, and monkeys too 😉 Blessings of Light and much love from Italy <3

    Hi Colette,I know what you mean about the monkey chatter. I had lived so long in “that state” of mind. With a daily practice of meditation, daily readings and journaling, I have come to appreciate and crave the need for inner peace/sense of calm. As we all know life gets in the way and we will experience the chatter and the racing mind. BUT I have found I can now tell when things just don’t feel right in my world. The energy is fragmented and scattered. It does not feel good, if I slip back into the old patterns of coping. Let’s just say these coping tools were not always healthy for me.I will not accept it any longer, as I know what feeling peaceful is like. To change our world around us, we must first change ourselves. Your work and Dr. Joe’s are the missing part of the puzzle for me, as I feel I have a plan to follow. Even if that plan is ‘Un-Charted” I have had way too many synchronicites to ignore any longer the potential that awaits me ( and all of us) if we are willing to approach our experience here on earth,in a new way. Your passion and excitement is contagious,and I applaud your honesty in showing all of us that even our teacher, has to re-calibrate and take time for one self. Here’s to C0-CREATING Sister!

    When the monkeys howl and scream deep within my head I start singing…yeah strange but true. I can not carry a tune in a bucket but my joyful noise out does their’s after awhile.

    I was awestruck by this reading–it hit home and helped me over one of my worst days since losing my husband—when you mentioned meditating to get back to myself I understood so well what it meant—I do need to take time alone to regroup and find my way and you have made that possible with the reading and the oracle cards. Please keep up the great work–you can’t imagine how many people you give new hope to…Thank you so much for all that I receive from your readings .

    Yesterday I felt so in tuned with my HP (Higher Power), and had a situation at work that was very difficult. I took a deep breath, and asked for help. I remained very calm, and things worked out – Thank You HP.
    Today I read your blog, and watched your video. WOW amazing.

    Monkey see, monkey dooooo! Once they start chattering, I run for a paint brush or paper and scissors or a box of my toys—that’s what I call my chatchke—–and work on changing the seasonal decor. Then, if that doesn’t work, I put my feet up and watch Vana White with Pat Sajack and slide right over to Alex Trebec. Then, when my head is clear enough to read, I pick up the book that the neighborhood book club has selected and promptly fall asleep after a page or two! ????????????
    Seriously, I do watch the Wheel & Jeopardy, but mostly I enter the silence. Before I know it, it has become a mindful meditation and I basque in the glow of Gratitude as I feel Spirits’ hand on my soul. A smile widens across my cheeks and AHA—I’m the observer.

    Thank you so much Colette for sharing. I have been feeling “gank” as Mama would say also. I feel you are always brilliant as you are real and raw. I am meditating, praying and praying some more. I believe I need to throw some down right fun in the mix. Whatever that may be. A lot of stuff going on this week. Mostly good stuff too. It’s just a lot all at once. I am grateful where I am today to before. Someone handed me a drink Sunday night before I realized what it was. I handed it back after holding it longer than I needed too.
    Again, thank you for your honesty. It helps me look at myself and really see what I need to see. What next best thing am I doing?

    You are amazeballs! My sign from Spirit – I have a close friend who I call Angel who is going through a bit of turmoil whether or not we can still be friends now that he is married. As a mark of respect and love I am staying away so as not to cause any harm. He appeared to me in a dream as the version of himself when we met with HUGE wings. I felt so comforted, loved and peaceful. He wrapped his wings around me. I took it to mean we will be okay. When the time is right we will find our way back to being friends. Letting go and letting Spirit help co create.

    I resonate with what you wrote SO MUCH. Feeling burnt out myself. Your first two sentences were authentic and came from love. When I get stressed out to the max, like I can’t take anymore and I”m frazzled, water helps. Get in a hot bath of epsom salts to cure physical ailments and it will also help you on a metaphysical level. You should come out of the bath feeling refreshed. Then yes a good book and for me a long walk in nature does it. A reconnection with Gaia helps to calm my nerves. Also, rely on good friends for their counsel and support. Love you so much and what you do. If you have too many irons in the fire, either later you will have the energy from Spirit to take care of all of them, or the less important ones may drop off your calendar for a bit, to reappear later. Much love and support!!! Patty

    This WAS a very valuable share! Reminding of us of the immense value there is in BEING not just in doing.
    Time, space and place for it all…..
    Wellbeing is my life, health, fitness, living well, and being well have been my calling.

    My message to you is, ‘me too.’
    I sit here with a migraine I received to my unwillingness to let go and allow for my healing to take FULL force, not just twinkles. Well, I have had a massage perfectly scheduled (from 6 weeks ago) to 30 minutes from now. Off I go. Thank you for reminding me to fly and receive ALL of this and whatever is to come in GRATITUDE!!!!

    I think my first comment got zapped? In any case, thanks so much for the letter even though you were feeling fried. Your comments “I think about the importance of self-care, how I find myself today not knowing what to share in this blog other than my deep gratitude for your eyes meeting my words here on the page.” really hit home. What I do to detox other than meditate and read books is to take several baths using Epsom salts. Get a gentle (not deep tissue) massage and more epsom bath salts tub time. It helps draw toxins of all kinds out, not just the obvious. Then what really connects me to Gaia and helps center me is a lot of long walks in nature. Just observing, not hiking or straining in any way. Gentle walks with Gaia. 🙂 Be well!

    Amazing and solid. As Always. This time you really tuned in cards I really needed, from my point of view. Thank you very much. And even bigger ovations comes along, Dame Colette, this time for correcting the diagnosis I have strubbled with for more than 20 years ago. Back then it was a bunch of shabby people who had the nerve to called them selves doctors, and they all concluded with Narcolepsy.
    Nevertheless, after many wweks and more sessions with descent Energy and Spirit forecast, I can now be absolutely sure they did wrong. You settled the score by telling us all that Spiritual Narcolepsy in actually what we suffer from. (not that boring medical usual one) Aaah. What a relief. Thank you!! 🙂

    Ahhhh… being present to be filled… that’s the key! Enjoy being in the “only moment that matters” as you leave behind all that your monkeys are using to entice you out of that space. What a wonderful opportunity to be with Dr. Dispenza. You recommended his book to me… You Are The Placebo… so I’m juggling The Map, Uncharted and You Are the Placebo… and although it feels crowded by all the Truths that are surrounding me, it’s exactly where I need to be and the air is Divinely exhilarating. Enjoyed hearing about your day!

    Hi Colette
    I understand “fried”. I know that you have the wisdom to engage in self care, as you guide us all. I once had someone tell me “you don’t burn out unless you were on fire” which made me laugh, and when you wrote “friend” I had an image: you are brimming with inspiration, love, guidance and deep desire to serve. A light as bright as yours needs time to recharge from Spirit, and you do that. That too, is an act of service. You take care of you so you can sustain the bright light of the service to which you are called. I wish you deep, renewing rest (in OH-so-beautiful Mexico of my heart) and I thank you always for your authentic sharing. You being you, exactly as you are, is all that is ever needed. Truth always hits the mark. Much love to you and to all of us.

    My dear Colette: one of the ways I restore myself is to spend time with my grandchildren. They are such magical beings. Crazy & fun. There imagination fuels mine and there curiosity is endless. I call them my angels but they are also my guides because they know what I have long since forgotten that we are perfect just the way we are and that the world is a magical place. When they put there little hand in mine I am transported to the land of fairies and unicorns and spirit.
    Rest well sweet thing.

    I enjoyed reading this! It’s so true. We are driven by our passion to make a difference in the world and be in service but we do need to take time fill ourselves up too! This made me realize how important it is to add self care to the numerous to do list also and just be with our SELF. Spirit is ever present in the moment, we just need to join spirit in the moment and all else will be taken care of. Wow I can go on with this post as it brings up so much for me. Thank you Colette!

    Colette,

    You always voice my thoughts, yet you know not what mine are. Spirit and Synchronicty! I too have been overwhelmed and drained. My monkey mind stillness go to right now is Uncharted. Thank you!

    I just shared with my family about a “moment” that I had. Overwhelmed and broken as I sat to gather myself a visit- out of nowhere, my friend- a giant Blue Dragonfly. He flitted up on my right, circled back around me, came up on my left and hovered directly in front of me. His message was loud and clear -“we got this, your ok! Spirit has your back! A world of relief spread over me, instantly energized, I knew I could confidently carry on. No longer feeling broken as I was reminded that I am definitely not alone! Blessings to all!

    Some weeks are full. Others….are life, like Seinfeld “we’ll make a show about nothing” describes what I feel has been my past week. I keep thinking I’m wise and mature enough to be off the yo-yo and the roller coaster and then find myself there again. I started off so strong and am trying to get that back as I feel it’s who I really am. But so much in life has beaten it out of me. I know, we’ve all got the sob story right? It’s just I keep making lackluster decisions every so often that affect a major part of my life. I think I’m making a good decision at the time, or…sort of. Like I kind of know better but also think I’ve my best interests at heart and not lying to myself at all. I don’t think I’m lying to myself at least. The problem is I really just don’t know where I belong in life anymore and so I don’t always make the best decisions even though I think I am. I don’t know. I thought I would know more of what I wanted at 44 years of age or where to place myself in life. Can people come in as an accident?

    I keep a little poem entitled, “Breathe”, with me: “once upon a time, there was a very busy girl with a tired yet hopeful soul. then, one day her soul asked her to stop…and just breathe. and so she did, and the girl and her soul lived happily ever after. the end” ~ Maggie lindley. I read that then, walk if possible, while doing heart focused breathing and thinking of all the things I’m grateful for. If the monkeys are still chatting, I will add in repeating over & over “Love You, Thank You”, still while heart centered breathing and sometimes some EFT tapping. If there are still some yappy ones about, I thank my Angels for helping to calm the remaining ones down, then I take my ear buds out and listen to music, a podcast, Hay House radio, or an audiobook.

    Friday week ago (28 Oct) I had to say good bye to my beloved fur baby of 15 years, so plenty of Monkeys to deal with. It is hard to be sad when we had so many great times together and the decision was easier as to put my little man through an amputation at the shoulder of his front leg and possible brain injury after being hit by an unknown vehicle made the decision somewhat easier. Not so easy dealing with the pain of my ego of the loss of separation and not having him around. Having faith is the easy part knowing that life is a cycle and I was blessed to enjoy 15 wonderful years of his company. Dealing with the what if goblins and monkeys another challenge but eased by purchasing a Black Star Diopside pendent – the calmness is awesome and a wonderful piece of Selenite and Obsidian all in his honour. So yes life goes on and as I slowly enter back – in knowing that this will be just a change towards Spirits Great Plan for me and the change that is coming is tough but doable. Also knowing that the pain of sadness is again in the cycle so when happiness will reign it will be even more brighter than before.

    Your last two readings are yet again so timely and on the mark – thank you Colette they are appreciated. My boy will live on in spirit and be yet another wonderful guide protecting me from above – I am very blessed and lucky and thank you Merlin for coming into my life 15 years ago, my apologies for me not slowing down over the last few months and dedicating more time to you as I knew I should – all my love as always and big spirit hugs – I will love your and your Sister for eternity!

        Thank you – but he will be much happier now – and in time like you and yours we can all play together in the sun once again. Now is a time to review the life lessons for me of pride and ego, grief and regret. And I think maybe a little progress has been made with that stinky regret and grief monkey so all will be well again soon enough – this we know and this we understand. Thank you Colette you are awsome and keep all of us grounded – we are so lucky that you so willingly share – that in itself is worth more than words can ever express – so BIG ARM THANK YOU HUG to you – THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
