I am writing to you on a Friday morning, surrounded by the peacefulness of a winter wonderland... almost a foot of snow that has accumulated over the past two weeks here in the Midwest. I trust that you are safe and staying healthy as we make our way through the second month of 2021.
Today's message to you is short and sweet... an Invitation that will resonate immediately if it's for you. With a heartbeat that speeds up, or a catch of your breath, or chills on your body. Because it is an energetic invitation... it is a Call from My Soul to Yours... and those direct messages create physical ripples through our Mind-Body-Spirit.
So you will know if this is for you. Or if this is a message to pass on to someone you love because their name or face will quickly come to your mind as a match.
This Invitation is for All Leaders of The New Earth.
What do I mean by The New Earth?
I believe that in this Age of Aquarius, humanity is undergoing a transformation. One where the physical body is understood to be the vessel through which Consciousness / the Soul expresses creativity and love. Our current reality is committed to believing more in the physical - that which we can see, taste, touch, experience with our physical senses. As humanity starts to shift, and it is already well underway, our intuition, our Spirit, our Soul becomes the clear guide for all that we do through our physical expression.
We are changing the story, turning the paradigm to a new lens, a new perspective.
This process of change can feel confusing, and yet there's a deep resonance inside when we hear Truth expressed in this way. Leaders of The New Earth are ahead of the times, ahead of the learning curve... feeling intuitively what is arriving before it manifests.
And so I hold space for these Leaders in a Community I created almost two years ago called Viv's Energy Gym, where we can be fully seen and witnessed in our becoming. We can define leadership in the way that we are each understanding it... and begin experimenting with how to fulfill the Soul's purpose for choosing a life here on Earth at this time of Awakening.
We currently have 18 members in 2 class times in our Gym and my intention is to expand to 100 members - Leaders - in 8 class times by the end of 2021. We meet weekly on Tuesdays at 5:55pm ET and Fridays at noon ET and will add new class times as we fill at 14 per class. Our first Men's only group begins a week from Sunday at 8pm ET and is limited to 8 for this first class to see where this specific energetic journey takes us.
It is an exciting time for me as I hold space for this container to expand!
It is an exciting time for humanity as we continue to feel the ripples of this collective transformation.
And it is an exciting time for you if this invitation resonates and you feel called to claim and step into your leadership in this new and powerful way!
You can read more about Viv's Energy Gym and watch a short video from me to you here. I look forward to welcoming you in if this resonates and continuing to share the beauty of this work with you over the next year!
So much love,
We made it! We are in the final few days of 2020 and here you are, reading this message from me, inviting you to join me in integrating 2020.
For many it feels like slamming the door behind us on this year is the best way to integrate it! Maybe with a few choice swear words?!
And perhaps that is how many will cross the threshold into the new year. It has been a complex, powerful, and intense year, and probably safe to say, one unlike any we have experienced before in our lifetime.
I believe, however, that the time between endings and beginnings of any kind offer us incredible gifts, if we truly pause to be present for them. It's like when we leave one job and take a week off in between, which allows us to pause, breathe, review what was, and daydream about what is arriving.
2020 has been a year filled with lessons. Tough lessons, painful lessons, complicated lessons... all offering transformative wisdom.
So here I am, inviting you to join me and many others, as we pause in meditation together to energetically review the movements this year, individually and collectively within humanity.
As I guide our virtual community (gathered by phone and web) through a one-hour meditation / visualization process, you are offered the opportunity to see this year through a new lens and identify the ways that all of the seemingly random pieces and threads actually fit together with such beautiful precision.
And THAT is what we integrate.
The awareness. The expansion. The understanding at a higher level of what 2020 has offered each one of us.
The virtual gathering is on Wednesday December 30th at noon ET and the exchange is $22 (the number signifying mastery). Details here
These have been powerful experiences for each of the last three years that I have hosted the calls.
This year I am including two new elements to further support our integration process:
I will be playing the album Spores by East Forest in headphones in my left ear as I guide the meditation, which weaves Sound through my throat chakra and out in the vibration of my voice. I invite you to play that same album along with me on another device as you listen the meditation. Sound profoundly supports the healing we will be doing together.
My gifted friend and healer, Andrea Henkels, is providing her virtual acupuncture support for our community's container. She will be supporting the flow of energy as we release that which is complete and integrate that which most serves.
Into 2021 Flow!
Then a few days later, after we celebrate New Year's Eve around the globe, we will gather again on Saturday, January 2nd at 10am ET for one-hour, $22 exchange. Details here
In this new space, with the firm foundation of all we integrated on Wednesday, the possibilities available to us in our visualization are endless! And so we spend an hour with my guidance, tuning into what it is our Soul most desires for our human journey in this new year.
I love the word Flow because it articulates being carried by a current of energy. Our Soul is able to see where it is the current is taking us and, when we listen quietly within a sacred energetic container, the Soul is very specific and magnificent in its vision! Often surprising us with what truly is possible...
These two calls are my favorites each year and set the course for such magic! When you complete your exchange here on my website, an order confirmation is emailed to you with a pdf document included that has all the logistics of how to join our virtual space.
During this specific transition, I agree with many astrologers in seeing this time as a shift for Humanity into The Age of Aquarius... a Consciousness shift that moves us towards the Aquarian ideals of community and collaboration, altruism, a sense that we are here for a much higher purpose than simply existing and surviving.
As an Aquarian, I am so excited about all that is arriving for us as a humanity in 2021 and beyond!
If you have not yet listened to my last Gaia's Love Podcast of 2020 (Episode #373), perhaps tune in to feel the vibration I know is awaiting us in the new year.
I wish you the most beautiful transition across the threshold into the New Year!
Meditation has become my quiet sanctity over the past five years, offering me clarity and guidance in every area of my life. Sometimes in that stillness, I flow the clarity through into words, writing in my journal what my Soul most wants me to understand in the moment.
These words from Monday's meditation feel timely for all of us here on Earth, so I share them now with you.
There is no rush. The Collective Shift is already underway, co-creative energy "sped up" the timeline... all Souls in human form are eager for the New, the Good, the Joy!
So we begin earlier, sooner. Moving the timeline up, forward.
By Being Still.
By Pausing Time.
That is the Gift, the Scene Change that we will experience on the other side of the Quarantine.
Time has slowed down. People are becoming more present, more embodied.
In. Their. Bodies.
People will look different to us. We will "see" them now. They will "see" us now.
Soul to Soul. Heart to Heart.
Not Mind to Mind.
But we need this time to be still to allow the Minds to slow down...
To allow the Bodies to adjust to the new flow of time, to heal illness and fear...
And finally... to allow the Soul to be more present in the Human Experience.
And when we Emerge from our Cocoons, our pace of life, activity will be slower, more conscious, more aware, more peaceful and loving.
We will talk more kindly, listen more attentively, and choose more intuitively.
So... here, now... what can you do?
Practice being present, sitting in the quiet of your home, your garden, your local park.
Listen to the Sounds around you, with your eyes closed.
Feel the emotions move through you.
Practice flowing your emotions, your energy down into the ground, releasing them all into Gaia / Earth.
Look up at the sky, allow Sunlight, Moonlight to flow in through the top of your head, your Crown Chakra.
Practice receiving Love as Light through your Crown.
Flow Love through your Body and down into Gaia / Earth.
Breathe more deeply, Exhale out slowly.
Say Thank You for this Moment.
One minute, five minutes, one hour... practice being still every day for as long as you're guided.
Allow your Soul to take up more space in your physical Body and breathe.
Slowly, Moment by Moment, Time Dissolves.
And then, One Day, there arrives a Moment when you emerge.
Out into a New Reality where the World appears different.
And you realize that this New Earth is reflecting You - the new version of You.
Love in the Human form, fully Here Now.
"May the Long Time Sun shine upon You,
All Love surround You,
And the Pure Light within You,
Guide Your Way On
Guide Your Way On..."
~ Kundalini Yoga chant
I am writing to you on a Thursday afternoon here in Cincinnati. It is cold and grey outside, but I come to you warm and filled up from a quiet, reflective morning.
I have been realizing over the last week how much of my time and energy for a while now has been directed towards writing and creating content to be shared through my podcast and books... and not as directed towards my Healing Sessions, which are so powerful.
Yesterday I was interviewed by my friend and comedian, Brendan Fitzgibbons, for his new podcast The Spiritual A**hole. If you have not yet tuned into his podcast, I highly recommend it for the funny and intriguing way he bridges spirituality and comedy - SO GOOD!!
Brendan had me on his show (episode to air in a few weeks) to discuss Energy and the ways in which I guide my clients to allow more flow of Energy in their lives.
(This is us a few years ago with his cousin and my dear friend, Andrea Henkels.)
He shared his story of our coaching journey (and how my definition of "coaching" has shifted in the past five years!) and the impact that my reflections had in helping him step more and more into his Gifts and creating a life that he now loves!
In our conversation, I was reminded again of the long-term power that comes from Loving Accountability... being held to the highest possibilities for ourselves.
Thank you, Brendan, for your beautiful testimonial and love and support of my work!
. . .
In my healing work, I often say to my clients that "what you focus on expands" and "Where you put your attention amplifies that idea or thought or experience."
And so, it feels significant to send you an email to highlight my Healing Sessions at this time of refocusing my direction for 2020.
If you have not yet experienced an Individual Healing Session with me, I invite you to consider scheduling an Initial Energy Assessment for first time clients.
In this 44-minute session, I offer my insight into how Energy is flowing through your Mind-Body-Spirit. These are very practical sessions with action steps to help strengthen your Body, soothe your Mind, and allow a greater opening for your Soul to communicate with you.
If you have already had a Healing Session with me before, perhaps now is a powerful time to allow guidance through my Energy reading for the possibilities awaiting you in 2020.
Do not under-estimate the impact that one session can provide in its Activation for your Mind-Body-Spirit.
I hold a clear channel for your Soul to be expressed... and my ability to translate Energy into words and images that resonate is unique and precise.
And also, SUCH FUN!
My sessions are often filled with laughter and joy as your Soul communicates with you through my voice and my translation!
If you have had a session with me before and know the value that I provide, I ask you to please consider sharing my Healing work with your friends and family.
Invite them into another level of their own Healing Journey through forwarding this email and adding your reflections about how you see and know me. Thank you!
As a thank you for your Referral, I am delighted to Gift you with two Here Now with Viv Sunday group Healing Sessions / Meditations.
Simply ask your Loved One to put your name in the Notes when they complete their exchange for a Healing Session (under Offerings on my website's menu) and I will send you the information to join the calls live or access the recordings later (value $22).
Thank you for trusting my work enough to share it with those you love!
My website's online calendar allows sessions to be booked 11 weeks out and so there are many opportunities for you and those you love to connect and allow my support in the journey we are all taking of Loving and Healing.
I am always touched and honored to receive Testimonials for the ways in which I show up in the work that I do. (You can read reflections from some of my past clients here.)
I would be honored to include your Testimonial about the ways in which we have connected and played together, if you feel compelled to share with me.
You can post a Review here on my Facebook page, which I would be delighted to then share on my website. If you are not on Facebook, I am also so happy to receive your reflections via email. Thank you!
. . .
In the human journey, we are offered endless pathways to follow.
Creativity takes so many forms and it is sometimes overwhelming to decide which direction is most resonant.
As I have completed Just White Light and shared the completion of my Soul's role as the Story-Keeper for our Tribe, I have been deeply contemplating which direction to focus on... which pathway offers the most Joy and Light... the most Play and Pleasure.
I know my greatest Gift is my ability to see the Light in others... to reflect each One's own beauty and brilliance and magnificence back to them.
And so I trust that those Souls ready to expand their Light and step more firmly into their Soul's Gifts in this lifetime are finding their way into deeper connections with my Soul here on Gaia.
Thank you for pausing your day to tune into this vibration with me. I send you so much Love today and always,
When I sat down to record the words I wanted to share here, the overall message can be simplified to one word... Home.
Here on Earth we have many definitions of Home.
There is our Home Planet... Gaia. Our Home Country, for me the United States. Our Hometown, Cincinnati. Our physical structure or building we call Home. And then the physical vehicle for our Soul... the Home of our Body.
Depending on the conversation and intention, Home can mean many things.
In my transition from 2019 to 2020, I was able to spend a lot of time in my physical home with my family, watching movies, eating lots of meals together, reading, writing, meditating, playing. Home felt solid and real and so good... especially with those I love here with me!
When my family returned to work and school at the beginning of the new year, I spent one day tuning into and visualizing the possibilities for the virtual home of my website for My Soul Journey.
I reorganized on a vision board the layout of my site's menu and how all of my Offerings and Services weave together in the new energy that is possible here in 2020. What I created visually and energetically I am now in the process of forming and writing physically as I manage my website's makeover.
If you have not visited this space in a while, I invite you to poke around here and explore the healing work that I do and the many forms in which I offer it.
On the second day after my family returned to their routines, I opened up a Flow with my Soul for a much wider and more expansive definition of Home.
The fullest definition of Love, from where we all originated as Souls and to where we all return at the end of Our Soul's Journey.
Home... Source... God... One... All... Universal Consciousness...
Our rudimentary attempts to define Consciousness, the Infinite, could never possibly fully capture what is.
And yet, my Awareness on that first day of recording Stories into my phone was that it was time for my Soul to communicate this broader definition of Home.
For the next two weeks, I sat quietly in my meditative process and flowed through a Collection of Stories. I transcribed and edited the content of these recordings into a book that was published on Friday, January 24th, the New Moon in Aquarius.
It is titled:
Just White Light...
A Collection of Stories from Across the Galaxy to Guide Our Way Home.
It is the Story of My Soul... the Spark of Light that originated from Just White Light... and follows my Path of Learning outside of and including here on Gaia, Earth.
The Stories I share offer insight into why a Soul exists, how the Soul embodies here in our physical reality, how Light and Color play and dance outside of Earth and here in our bodies through our Energy Chakras.
I offer my Reflections on death and dying... and how to experience Co-Creation and collaboration outside of our human form.
This is a Book of Love... about Love... for Love.
It offers my perspective through the lens of My Soul Journey.
These Stories are being shared Here Now on Gaia because more and more Souls are Awakening.
Waking up to the realization that we are all related.
We are all on this Journey together.
That we are Visitors here on Gaia and we have much to learn from her Energy, her Creation, her Love for Humanity.
It can be uncomfortable and confusing to Awaken.
So Just White Light offers guidance and understanding to soothe the questions of the Mind.
You will know if it resonates (details here) and I look forward to hearing your reflections if and when you join me in this Voyage across the Galaxy.
The Age of Aquarius...
I chose the New Moon in Aquarius as the birth date for Just White Light because the Aquarius energy feels like Home to me. I am an Aquarius Sun and Moon, Gemini Rising, and I was born on a New Moon in Aquarius many years ago.
The night before Just White Light birthed, we gathered for the first New Moon Circle of 2020 (in Aquarius) here in my physical home.
I continue to be amazed and humbled at the courage and vulnerability of those who show up in this community to connect and evolve. We go deep and yet we stay in our own power and strength... and I find this to be remarkable.
As I feel into the possibilities for this new year and new decade, I am certain that Circles such as the ones I host here are going to become sacred spaces where we can touch and Remember the Love of this broader understanding of Home.
Where we are truly SEEN for the unique Soul embodied here on Gaia.
And where we Remember and begin sharing our Soul's Gifts within community.
If you have not yet attended a New Moon Circle and you are close to Cincinnati, I encourage you to pick a date here, put it on your calendar, and come bring your unique Light to a Circle in my home in 2020! Exchange soon as the Circle space is limited to 22 and they are filling early.
If you are interested in hosting a Circle and inviting me to facilitate, this year is a good time to begin expanding our Circles! Send me an email and let's match up a date.
I believe 2020 is already... and will only become even more powerful... a Time of Awakening.
Our home planet of Gaia is changing right in front of our eyes and as residents here, we are being invited to pay attention to her shifts.
I share my Reflections about Gaia 2020 in the Gaia's Love Podcast.
I opened this space back up on the New Moon in Aquarius and will be creating two episodes per week, on Mondays and Fridays. There is a library of past episodes to play with, if you are new to the podcast. These messages are thought-provoking and inspiring and I invite you to join me here.
As Energy moves and individuals Awaken, the confusion and intensity can create an illusion of isolation or feeling separate or left out.
I offer my support individually and in group spaces, if this is where you find yourself at the beginning of 2020:
"Home is where the Heart is."
We often say or hear these words and I love the intention of the phrase. Home = Love.... Love = Home. There are many definitions and all are correct when Love equals Home.
Let's continue defining Home together... Here Now on Gaia in 2020!
Happy December! We are just a few weeks from the end of 2019 and there is much moving and settling as we complete this year and this decade. I have a few Reflections to offer and I trust that if you are reading this, there are nuggets in here for you also!
At the beginning of this year, I tuned in energetically and created a guided meditation for the year ahead, titled "Yes, Please; Thank You; I Love You." In it, I described the collective shift I could feel happening in the year ahead towards full acceptance of ourselves individually and a willingness to receive more than we had ever allowed ourselves to receive in past years.
Moving towards full awareness and then acceptance of who we are as Souls in human bodies is a big intention for one year! And so perhaps you, like me, have been feeling the intensity of this journey.
It is not always easy or fun to see all the ways in which we show up (or do not show up) in this world. And it takes much courage to keep looking within and sifting through to discern the truth. Our own inner truth.
Many call this process Awakening...
You may may have already been on this path for a while or it may have just suddenly begun for you.
Self-acceptance requires awareness first, forgiveness often second, and then Love to flow through fully.
Being able to accept our human-ness AND our immense and beautiful Divinity... that is one of the greatest Gifts of being a Soul-human here on Earth. Knowing that each Choice, each moment, each step led us right into the next and created a path that no-one else has ever walked before.
When we are able to come to this place of self-acceptance, we realize that there are no right or wrong choices, simply Choices that lead to the next Choice. And this moment in which you sit here and now is exactly perfect. It could have been different, it could have been "better," it could have been "worse," and yet... here you are. Now. Fully present.
In a few weeks, the calendar will turn to a new year and a new decade. And with that collective focus on Time, an energetic shift also occurs. A completion of this decade of 2010-2019.
Many will mindlessly flow through this energetic shift without pausing to explore the completion of one phase and the beginning of the next... and that is a Choice to simply keep moving through Time in this way.
What is possible for those choosing differently is a Conscious Awareness of this Time Portal.
How do we change old patterns and beliefs?
We become aware of them and we choose differently.
Time is a construct that all on Earth have agreed to as a form of structure and stability for Creation.
As more people Awaken and become aware of these collective agreements about Time and Creation, new agreements are going to be formed.
More will be created at an ever-increasing speed. We are already seeing this shift in the amount of information and content that comes through technology into our hands and ears and eyes.
As more arrives into our daily experience, each of us is put more firmly into the driver's seat of our Choice of how we spend our Time.
We can continue cruising along on default without awareness... and collective beliefs will carry us into the future.
We can become very aware and conscious of EACH Choice we make. EACH moment of how we spend our Time.
And through those Choices, we change our Reality.
Individually first, and then as more and more individuals are focused together... we change collectively.
So, what do we do?
What do you do?
What do I do?
Well, first, and most importantly, we bring our full awareness to completing this year of 2019 and this decade.
How do you do that?
Look at your reality, today, this week, this month:
There are no "right' or "wrong" answers and no need for judgment about what you discover.
There is simply Awareness... which leads to Choice.
So choose to complete by the end of this year what feels necessary to complete in your life. Maybe there are conversations to have or letters to write or quiet time to put deliberately onto your calendar in the midst of all the activity. Only YOU know what is the priority to complete before the calendar changes, so choose to honor the answers you receive to these questions.
And then there will be an Arrival at midnight, December 31st... and 7 billion Souls in human bodies will focus on Time changing, the calendar changing from 2019 to 2020.
As a Time-Keeper for the Gaia Tribe, allow me to describe what I feel when humanity is collectively Greeting 2020.
The first awareness I have is of Light.
More Light flowing into Earth... Gaia... this beautiful home planet that we chose to inhabit in the physical form.
The Light is soft and gentle and all-encompassing, moving in slow waves simultaneously throughout ALL lands and oceans. There is no one central entrance point that humans could focus on to say the Light arrives here. It flows in through the atmosphere, everywhere, all at the same time, continuously arriving.
Why Light, you may ask?
Light is the Original Source of Creation. Light came out of the darkness and Creation began.
It is the Contrast of dark and Light that offers the greatest learning, the greatest advancement for Souls. If we were all in the Light all the time, there would be no contrast to show us the brilliance of our Light!
Humanity has played in this Contrast from the Beginning and it has served us well. We have evolved our species to a place of such strength and wisdom.
And so the next evolution of our species is a Return to the Light. A return to Creation. A stepping out of the darkness and embracing Light.
This cleansing process begins internally... individually... and then moves collectively.
Since we live in a vibration of Free Will and Choice, what this next phase of Awakening looks like will be up to each of us individually.
For some it may feel as if they've been asleep in a dark room and bright, harsh lights just suddenly got flipped on overhead. And so there may be a sense of chaos or confusion or disorientation as each acclimates to more Light.
For those already on their Path of Awakening, this will feel like the warmest of embraces. Like a favorite grandmother opening her arms so that we can crawl right in and be held in the most pure expression of Light and Love.
Because ultimately Light is Love.
The Original Light of Creation is... was... always has been Love.
It is our exploration of Contrast that has had us forget this Truth. And it is a Truth each must come to individually. No-one can tell you that until you FEEL it.
When you allow yourself to be embraced with pure Love, pure Light... it is beyond words.
And yet, in each tiny Choice to become Aware... to be present... to open our Heart and allow the possibility of more Light to enter our energy field... Slowly, slowly our physical bodies and minds are able to adjust... to allow... to evolve.
This Awakening is already happening. It has been happening since 2012. And the first major phase of this evolution completes in 2021.
This next year of physical, earthly time is pivotal for humanity.
Choosing Love instead of Fear in every potential Choice, big or small... each of us choosing Love again and again and again... shifts the collective frequency of humanity.
So what do we do?
What do you do?
What do I do?
Greet January 1, 2020 with an open heart, steady feet planted firmly on this planet, and a clear intention to Choose Love as often as possible.
Begin the New Year with a clear, fresh breath, releasing the old patterns that no longer serve.
Take the answers you discovered (to the questions above) as you completed 2019 and draw yourself an energetic blueprint of who you choose to be in 2020... how you choose to show up in this world.
Feel into your purpose as a Soul in a human body here on Gaia as humanity Awakens and Light guides us forward:
Even if you don't know the whole vision or picture yet, in your meditation time ask for just one next step. And then honor that next step and watch how the next one will appear right after it, guiding you forward.
Perhaps without even knowing how it happens, Your Soul's Journey is now on a new trajectory.
You are walking your Soul's highest blueprint.
Take deep breaths as you move through this process of completing 2019 and greeting 2020... pace yourself. Allow the joy of this exploration to guide you!
This is a Portal of Time that is precious and magnificent... not to be wasted if you are aware of it.
I am going through this process myself, feeling the magnitude of this past decade in my own life. All of the endings and beginnings that have happened along the way.
My Soul holds me accountable to my highest blueprint through the work that I do...
By showing up each day for the Gaia's Love Podcast and receiving such clarity and wisdom in my own messages to me... which I then share with you!
I have built beautiful communities around me in the form of our weekly Tuesday Energy Gym conversations, virtual Quietly Listening healings, and our monthly New Moon Circles. These new and old friends reflect back to me consistently how I am choosing Love over fear in my life, and I am held accountable to show up, keeping my heart open. I have deep gratitude for these spaces and these friends!
And I am showing up for myself and my communities on December 30th by connecting to Source and guiding a virtual healing / meditation Completing 2019... and then again tuning in on January 3rd in Greeting 2020. I invite you to join me in these sacred spaces and allow the collective energy of Love to increase in strength as we tune in together.
May all Beings be at Peace as we move through this Transition of Consciousness.
So much love,
Vivienne Gerard – Teacher / Scribe / Healer / Guide / Lover of Souls and Humanity

November has arrived and we are less than eight weeks from this amazing year of 2019 completing... this decade of 2010-2019 completing... and a threshold taking us right into 2020!
A decade... WOW...
When I think back to who I was ten years ago, my reality was so different than how it is today. I was separated from my first husband and moving through the legalities of a divorce, working full-time in an intense marketing position at an international firm, and trying to do my best to parent my children through this difficult transition in our lives. I was stressed and confused, emotionally riding the waves of grief at such a significant ending and joy for new independence unfolding.
Time was the dictator of my world, running my schedule to the minute, with many hours spent in my mind, in the car commuting, repeating tasks and managing projects at work that I was not energetically invested in. I was constantly running out of time, late to almost everything in my life, and feeling overwhelmed by navigating it all!
The decade since has been a powerful and humbling time of learning for me.
I have studied, read, practiced, and mastered an awareness of who I am and how I choose to experience time in my life.
Meditation and energy healing have been powerful teachers, as I have found pathways to hear my Soul guiding the highest possibilities for this lifetime.
So I sit here, at the beginning of November, at the end of this decade, very aware of the threshold arriving into 2020.
Realizing my desire to be consciously aware of how I spend my time as we move through the rest of this year.
Not having my calendar dictate my mood and activities as it did ten years ago... instead being very intentional about who I choose to spend my time with and how present I am for those treasured moments.
How do I do that?
Well, for me, it starts with an Intention Grid!!
You may not have the time to watch my video (although I'd suggest giving it a try, you might really enjoy the peaceful feeling of watching me play with energy!), so I'll share a few highlights of what I discovered as I worked my Grid, trusting that there might be a nugget of wisdom here for you, too.
1. Self care first! Sleep, eat well, exercise, and meditate anchored the base and top of my Grid, setting the foundation for everything that would flow next.
2. Family and Friends next, right at the Center of my Grid. Those Soul-humans I chose to walk this journey of life with are not always the ones with whom I spend most of my hours each week. (Sound familiar?!)
My greatest Loves are my husband and my (now grown-up!) children. As we wrap up this year, I am consciously choosing to first be more present with them. Finding more moments together, which can be challenging because their lives and mine are full and busy. And so I continue to weave in and out of their schedules, finding the places where we each and all overlap. Those moments always fill me up, as Love sits so firmly in our conversations and stories.
3. And then flowing my Work into my Grid, discerning how to best honor my own creative desires and love for the healing work I offer, while also balancing my desire to play more with my family and friends. Making this Intention Grid helped me see visually and energetically how it can all come together with ease and joy!
Here are a few of the last 2019 available Treasures that I placed for us on my Grid:
Time is a precious gift and it is up to us to honor it as ours to intentionally invest or spend in the ways that matter most to each of us.
It was so much fun to tune into these last two months through the lens of an Intention Grid and then share it here with you! I trust it inspires you to also be intentional with your time as we wrap up this decade.
I wish you a beautiful pathway through the end of 2019!
So much love,
Vivienne Gerard – Teacher / Scribe / Healer / Guide / Lover of Souls and Humanity
Clearing Past Patterns to Co-Create an Empowered NOW
Join me on My Soul Journey on I-Tunes, SoundCloud, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.
We are beginning a new month, a new season here in the Midwest, and a new cycle of energy shifting on our planet.
As we wrap up the third quarter of this powerful year of 2019, we open to the potential of the last three months of the year for aligning fully with the new mantra that I offered on January 1st. The Ho'oponopono Prayer for healing traditionally offers "I'm sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you, I love you." In the meditation I made in January, I felt that we are being guided into a new vibration with a chant of "Yes please, Thank You, I love you."
This year has challenged us to look directly at the ways in which we have needed to forgive ourselves, forgive others, and forgive humanity for the stories, choices, and patterns that have led us here to this moment.
I believe we are each offered, in every moment, the choice to allow more Love ("Yes, please") into our own journey of our Body - Mind - Spirit, which then radiates out into everything around us... our health, our finances, our relationships, our work, our community.
I have been moving through this energetic shift myself in so many ways and arrive here at the beginning of October in a field of New Beginnings.
I share much of my journey in daily nuggets in the Gaia's Love Podcast, which holds me accountable to speaking my truth and staying in integrity with the way in which I show up in this world. What I continue to find is that I am met in that space by the Love of Source and Gaia... and the energetic sound vibration that goes with each episode is pure.
So here in this written form of communication with you, I am excited to share the new evolutions and creations that have flowed from this journey I have been taking all year!
Like all of us, I am in a constant state of evolution and since my work is My Soul Journey, the offerings that I share reflect that constant unfolding of my Soul in human form.
If you are reading these words, there was something that guided you to this vibration that I am sending out into the world. There is some match energetically in what I offer here, and perhaps, what you are ready to receive. Like attracts like and I see that in my work all the time.
So I invite you to be curious and open as you read the words and feel into the vibration of these New Beginnings in My Soul Journey!
My greatest commodity (as is the same for each one of us) is my Presence... my full, undivided, focused Presence in the moment with you.
If you have spent any time with me, you know the power of the way that I listen.
I hear with my ears... my heart... and my Infinite Soul that sees the patterns and the weaving of ALL we each have ever been.
What I have come to realize in my professional journey is that much can be accomplished in a very short, focused amount of time when we are each fully present. And so the way that I facilitate Individual Healing Sessions has shifted.
Just one one-hour session where we are both fully present and open to all the possibilities of what your Soul wants you to see and understand as clearly as possible in the moment... can shift the trajectory of your path.
Not simply because of the vision I articulate for you... but because of your choice to be open to hearing that vision... and then taking the inspired next steps to begin moving in that direction.
So, while I call my individual sessions Healing Sessions, they are Activations at a Soul level of what is ready to open next in your own Soul-human adventure.
You will know if / when it is time to allow that next expansion for yourself and I trust in the Divine Guidance that always brings the two of us together.
So if your head is nodding yes and your heart is beating a little faster while your Mind is saying "Oh no, we can't possibly be ready" or "That investment feels a little scary," trust that the Activation is already beginning and claim a time for yourself through booking a session here. (My online calendar is updated through the end of 2019 with my available times, don't wait!)
There is so much love in the way that I show up fully present... it is a safe space even in the power of all that is arriving next for you.
I am a firm believer in empowering myself and all of those around me to step into greater Truth and alignment with our Mind-Body-Spirit. I do this through teaching tools and providing resources in whatever ways feel timely and supportive for your individual expansion.
What some call meditation, I also call energy clearings.
One of my Gifts is to guide the movement of Energy through our Mind-Body-Spirit, connecting us to the Energy Field of our planet and reminding each of us of our individual connections to Source / God.
Wherever you are in your own Soul Journey, these loving spaces that I hold offer you support for your Individual Mastery:
Here Now with Viv is a one-hour energy clearing on Sunday mornings at 10am ET that is best when joined live in the present moment as you hear my voice guide the group through the clearing process. It is also recorded for you to access at any time. There is a library of these one-hour energy healings available for you at any time to support your path. (These four calls per month are included in the Energy Gym, described below... Bonus!!)
Creative Play with Viv and Alicia ...My friend and singer-songwriter, Alicia Mathewson, and I just recently opened up this space in Patreon where we share how we tap into the joy of creation, allowing it to flow through us ever more powerfully in our work. For a small monthly exchange, you receive exclusive videos from each of us individually and then both of us together as we reflect on the flow of Energy. Playtime!!
Quietly Listening with Viv and Andrea... My friend and healer, Andrea Henkels, and I are now combining our gifts of meditation, space-holding, and virtual acupuncture into a beautiful and gentle healing experience twice a month on Wednesday nights at 9pm ET. From your very own bed at home, you can flow into a healing cocoon of love that guides you right into a sweet night's rest for your Mind-Body-Spirit... bliss! Join us!
Books and Courses... Over the past few years, I have written several books and created on-line self-study courses that can guide you through moments of transition and deeper Activations at your own pace. Combining videos, audios, and written tools, these are powerful resources simply waiting for your time and presence. The Soul Filters resource library, the Loving Our Selves package, and the 8-week Awakening the Guides in-depth program are amazing next steps for anyone ready to expand. And the One Day series of books offers step-by-step guidance through the expansion of Consciousness and the building of community here on our planet. Dive in... there is much for you to explore!
What often feels best after any individual Activation or expansion is to be supported by loving communities, both physically in our local hometowns and virtually with global gatherings.
When we see others whom we respect and trust walking similar paths to ours, struggling with similar fears and resistance as ours, and yet still showing up in truth and integrity as we do... the journey is less daunting.
The community reflections inspire us to continue following our life's purpose and bringing our Gifts forward.
I have spent my life studying and understanding community, learning the ways in which it works best and the ways in which it can be destructive.
The more I come into alignment with gratitude and appreciation for the Gifts of community, the more ideas for new ways to play in community flow through me. Whether you are here in Cincinnati or anywhere around the world, I offer lots of ways for you to get to know other beautiful, like-minded Souls.
Soul Shine Tribe on Facebook... Wherever you live in the world, you can join our "Tribe of Seekers committed to expanding who we are in this world. Using meditation and mindfulness as a practice, we spread awareness, love, compassion, eagerness and the joy of Life within ourselves and to those around us. We see Life as an adventure, meant to be enjoyed fully and shared in its depth and richness. Bring your highest and best self to this community and soar with us! xoxo"
Lunch and Love with Viv... If you are local, I am now hosting two Lunch Tables each week in neighborhoods around town. I come to your area and we gather at different restaurants and get to know people who live and work close to us. How do we do that? We show up, which means we claim an hour at lunch once or twice a month and help build these communities together! You can check out the dates and locations here.
Embodied Love... I am bringing my community-building gifts to local yoga studios and healing centers in a one-hour class I call Embodied Love. We sit in Circle and I guide our group through an Energy / Chakra clearing, guided meditation, chanting, or breathwork experience... releasing stuck energy and filling back up with Source Energy, while also teaching tools that you can then apply on your own in between classes. Just like with any workshop or yoga class, community is built as you show up in the space and get to know others who have a similar interest. If you want to propose this class to your own local studio, let's spread the word as I'm just beginning this process! The first class is going to be on Wednesday, October 30th from 7-8pm at my home to open up the energy flow. Details here!
New Moon Circles are offered each month and this community continues to grow and expand in the most amazing and surprising ways! If you have not yet joined us, I invite you to come to one of our last two Circles for 2019... Thursday October 24th and Friday, November 22nd. Or if you want focused support setting intentions at the beginning of the lunar cycles, this is the only time when I offer 20-minute phone sessions during the month... powerful and quick Activations. Details here!
Viv's Energy Gym... And then one of my favorite spaces for community is in our virtual Gym! Each Tuesday night we gather via video and phone to share what is happening in our journeys, holding each other accountable for continued, sustainable growth in our personal and professional lives. The bonds that are forming here are through laughter, shared stories, releasing of fears, and encouragement, cheer-leading as we all expand. It is a powerful and FUN community that is unlike anything else you may have experienced in a virtual container, so I encourage you to check out the details here. If you don't like it after the first month, you can step back out... but I'm pretty sure that won't be the case!!
Gaia's Love Festivals... My greatest vision remains bridging the healing of Gaia / Humanity / Source through these global Celebrations! The first one, held two months ago, was a powerful activation for so many, building a community that I am honored to continue getting to know in deeper ways. The videos are finally being uploaded this week to my website (after waiting patiently on my desk for weeks now!) for you to access. You can learn more here.
Plans are opening for the second Festival which will be held in Denmark in April 2020! If you have not yet read One Day: Gaia's Gifts, I encourage you to order your copy and allow my vision to inspire you... and perhaps also inspire collaborations that guide all of us towards this returning to One-ness.
Yes, there is a lot of creative energy flowing in my world, and it is only going to continue!
The title for my next book popped out in this past Sunday's Here Now with Viv call... and there is much work to be done in the journey towards Optimal Health of Mind-Body-Spirit for humanity that I know I am involved in co-creating.
And so Time is my friend... my ally... as I continue to master efficiency and allow Source Energy to support my path. My capacity to be fully present for longer periods and with more individuals at once is expanding... so good!
Thank you for being on this journey with me and for sharing your lives and your stories with me in the amazing ways that so many of you do. I am so grateful for the love that continues to move and expand through my life and I look forward to playing with you in one or many of these ways throughout the rest of this year and into 2020.
Sending you love in all of your new beginnings also,
Vivienne Gerard – Teacher / Scribe / Healer / Guide / Lover of Souls and Humanity
