Don't change: Transform!

Bonjour Friends

The other morning, I was on my way to my daughters school, when a thought suddenly crossed my mind: I realized that I had not received an inspiration for my next blog...(Yet!)

Was it a warning? or a premonition asking me to be ready for what was about to happen? I can't say!
This is, and always be magic!

Nonetheless, the next thing I knew: "My message" was standing right there at the corner of the street that was taking me to my destination.

Written in orange capital letters, on a large billboard:"Don't change.Transform".

It wasn't just some kind of commercial for a phone anymore, it was a sign, a divine inspiration filled with potential that I was excited to explore, and share with you and the world.

In our everyday language, the words "Change" & "Transform" are often used as synonyms.

However, when we look up at their definition in a etymological dictionary, they are fundamentally different.

To change, means to alter. To cause to be different. It's an exchange of something for something else.

To transform, in another hand, means to convert one form of energy to another. Yet, the essence remains the same.

How beautiful! What a profound spiritual teaching in its simplest form!

As spirits having a human experience, the all purpose of this physical world is to give us the chance to transform our nature.

In the spiritual realm, we are the children, the receivers: The Vessel.

Now, in our incarnated form, we get the opportunity to become like our creator, a source of sharing: The Light.

Let's remind ourselves then, that since Creation, "all we need" to complete this journey is "simple". We just have to think about others, like a parent covers the needs of his child before his own.

When I say: "simple"! You know of course that I am joking?!
Come on! It's been 5772 years since Adam & Eve!

Let's face it! "Unconditional love", Caring, Sharing, Restriction, Pro-action... are easier said than done, especially in the mist of those challenges!

Well....My personal experience as an intuitive counselor and as a soul on its spiritual journey, gave me some good clarity about this subject: "When a rocket is thrown at us: It's never about the challenge or even the solution, it's about the transformation that takes place in the space between the two".

In the past month, (Thanks to Scorpio master teacher!), I had a lot of friends calling me in a very disturbed state of mind : "war" with family members, out of control co-workers issues, home intruders... just to name a few.

Each one of those situations found its happy ending, what I reminded each one of them though was:

First: Don't panic, each challenge has a solution!

Second: Remember that: E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G comes from the Light.

Third: Pause and observe your reaction before you act, your opportunity for growth is encapsulate right here!

When we transform our reaction, we affect and change our reality from chaos to fulfillment: There's no more "problems", only Solutions!

Love & Light always, Ilanit.

You've got mail!

Bonjour Friends

The other day, my daughters came back home from Hebrew school singing a tune that I had learned at their age too.
This melodic interpretation of a biblical scripture goes like this: "The Light (Hashem, G-od, the Lord...) is Here, The Light is There, The Light is truly Everywhere!"

Pretty simple lyrics, isn't it?

Think again!

The Bible is well known for being a code, with multi facets and hidden meanings; some verses just like this one can actually take a lifetime to study.

As Rav Ashlag, the first most "revolutionary" kabbalist of the 20th Century said:" For one handbreadth revealed, two others are concealed!"

Bottom line, there is never an end to how much we can learn from this verse and obviously from life... which I thought was the perfect introduction for this new edition of "Intuitive Counseling by Ilanit".

For those who are open minded and willing to learn and transform: he/she will receive divine messages from different places, in various forms.

As the song introduced previously continue in its chorus:" Up, Down and All around, that 's where The Light can be found".

Beautiful! However it does raise some burning questions!

How each one of us with our limited "vision" and "hearing" abilities (let's not get upset here, it's only scientific facts) gets to recognize and understand those divine messages?

Do we get some kind of nudges saying: "You've got mail!" with perhaps an additional translator program?

Well...It's not that simple, yet there is a few rules that can help us here.

Rule #1: Sincerely desiring the answer
Initially, when I started to meet with people, I didn't want to believe what psychologist as well as spiritual workers were saying and then realized it on my own:" It's easier to stay the same than change"'s not due to a lack of messages.

Rule#2: Be ready to let go
What we want is not always what we really need and certainly not always what is the best for us.
The Ego desire can be pretty persistent and can disguise itself very well too!
Should I detail on this one or your own life experiences supplied you with enough explanations already?!

So finally...

Rule #3: Be without preconceptions
We never know, how, when or from whom the messages will come.
This blog for example was named after a movie with the same title: "You've got mail".
In this very light romantic comedy, the leading lady character realized at the end that her "worst challenger" happened to also be her secret most devoted "e.messenger-love-mate"!!!

"The Light is here, the Light is There, The Light is Everywhere! Up, Down and All around that's where It can be found!"

Love & Light Always, Ilanit.
