India 2017

Spring Awakenings Our time in India is coming to an end.  We both feel invigorated and cleansed from our extended time with Amma,  She illuminates and eliminates many of our tendencies that no longer serve us, while bringing out more of our light at the same time. We had an incredibly full four months here at the Ashram.  We participated in the Christmas play once again which took much or our attention in the month of December.  The production was the Prodigal Son parable.  We danced and enjoyed acting and freely expressing ourselves. We shared our Heart Opening workshop on New Years Eve here at the ashram.  It was so thrilling to work on people from all over the world sharing the language of the heart. Amritapuri (the ashram) is feeling more like home every visit.  Living in a large community where activities and purpose are shared feels so rewarding.The structure supports our spiritual practices and healing,  It feels like community living is a very balanced way to live  We were fortunate to go on three Indian tours with Amma as she visited her children all over India. We are becoming accustomed to the large crowds, cues (long lines), heat and austerities (uncomfortable situations).  We are definitely learning how little one really needs. I do bring my feather pillow wherever I go as some things are just a necessity. I am actually starting to like sharing a room with other women with just a mat as my own personal space. The camaraderie and group living feels comforting at times. It is interesting rooming with women of different ages and nationalities. Chi is finding shared space with the men beneficial for growth also.  While traveling we get to experience both the Indian city and country settings which are quite contrasting. The villagers are so pure and innocent. I feel we are both becoming more world citizens with friends as family all over the world. The work on ourselves here has not been easy, but the results are palpable. Feeling blessed to have the healing tools to move through things quickly.  We are ready to share the gifts we have received with all of you. We will be going to Singapore next week offering sessions there on April 5th and 6th.  If you have any friends that live there, we have a few openings left just message us. We will be headed to Australia after Singapore.  My son Michael will be meeting us in Melbourne and my other son, Parker will catch up with us  late April on the Gold Coast. We will also be doing two Awakening your Heart workshops in Brisbane and The Sunshine Coast.  We are offering the workshop in Brisbane on the 19th with private personal sessions on the 20th.  The class will be held on 30th of April on the Sunshine Coast. We are headed back to the United States early May. We are offering Readings or Healing Sessions in Portland at Ayurveda Plus Rejuvenation Center, 3609 SW Corbett Ave May 16-18th.

mediumship

Mediumship provides Messages and Healings for Loved Ones on both sides of the Veil! Recently we had the grace of offering a few group mediumship nights. One in Portland and one in Minneapolis, Mn.  A few highlights from these events were a father came through Shuba to share with his daughter how proud of her he was. While he was alive he had a hard time expressing himself and showing love. He was so relieved to be able to tell her this, both of their hearts were lightened.  A grandmother who had only met her granddaughter once when she was ten years old came through and apologized for her unkind words and told her granddaughter kind things this time. Unfinished feelings freed up for both. In another reading a mother was also able to reconnect with her son who had died in a car accident when he was 23. He was able to cry and release his pain of making a choice that was irresponsible releasing some of his guilt! He was relieved to talk to to his mom and she was happy to hear from him.  Others in the group got some past life memories awakened while others received messages and healings.  If this sounds like something you or your friends would be interested in, please contact us to schedule a group mediumship gathering. We are grateful for all of it! Blessings to all of you! May your lives be filled with Grace on your Journey of...

Surrendering to the Divine

Sometimes This soul (Shuba) is surrendered to the divine and is misunderstood by others. It is hard to explain my gift and commitment to Self Surrender..I sat with questions about this …and the following is the reply I received and am sharing . I heard… Can you ever truly be free when you need to be understood or not judged? No… You need freedom to be God’s Instrument.  Whether people understand or accept you.  True Freedom lies in absolute surrender to the Divine.  It can not be explained or understood by those who are residing in their egos.  Some may have an understanding, but not a belief from their own experience … so hard to comprehend. Quit trying to get others to understand you. If you do not need approval or understanding your ability to surrender will increase and the dissolving process will quicken.  No need for anyone outside you to understand the process and trust God explicitly- will lead you to peace and harmony and Bliss.  Your path is unique to you and others have their paths.  Follow yours, do not worry about theirs or their reactions..Do you trust me? Yes I am always with you..I won’t let you falter. I need your help Amma. Does it matter if anyone else loves you or does not love you? No Do you love God? Amma? Yes Amma loves you unconditionally and will help you chop out-change all of your prior conditioning. Freedom will come…Continue to Heal and go after what is important- Your Connection to the Divine..all else is business, mind splatter. Trust..I am Guiding you and love you so...
