Working through the Five Stages of Grief.

We are all grieving. Life as we know it is over. We have no idea where we are going. Our old foundation is burning up and we have to go inside for deep connection.

When we know we never die, we look forward to rebirth in all areas of life and death.

Where are you in the stages below? You might be wavering through several at once. It is a process for all of us. One day at a time. As we move through this year into next year, we may be up and down through all the stages.

Be patient, loving, and kind, to you and all. The key is to keep going. Admit where you are and work through it in a healthy way.

1. Shock and Denial.

2. Anger and Bargaining.

3. Depression, Reflection, Loneliness.

4. Reconstruction and Working through Loss.

5. Acceptance and Hope.

Denial is important to work through. Many people are at risk because of denial. Whether you believe it or not, this pandemic is happening.

Anger is victim-hood and righteousness at work. Not productive or easy to sit in. Blaming others does not get us anywhere neither does judgment.

Moving through these is freeing to help us deal with what is important. No one likes any of this, it is unexpected and scary. Holding onto anger reduces our immunity and makes us sick mentally and physically.

Being sequestered sure puts us in stage three, depression, reflection, and loneliness. As much as many of us are literally alone, we are all in this together differently. Finding ways to stay connected is key.

Reconstruction and working through loss is one of the focuses I am suggesting in this newsletter. Look for what you are willing to work towards. Be flexible to move with what is in order to co-create forward movement at each moment.

Acceptance and Hope are also my focus here. It is ten weeks here in New Jersey that we have had the stay at home order. Slowly places are opening up. The parks were a big loss and now gain to keep people like me sane.

Being careful and wise with no rushing is important. Placing our energy in new visioning and doing and being what we can now lift us up and support us now.

Hang in there and be and do the best you can each day. Be sure to find support all along the way. We are not alone, we are all one.

I am here to support your journey. I am visioning and creating new ways of supporting you too. More will be coming very soon.

Always in Love,  Janet StraightArrow

LIVING WITH INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE GRIEF

People talk about grief being love. A line from the movie Moonstruck came back to me when thinking about this subject today. In this movie, Nicolas Cage says to his lover Cher, “Love is not what they tell you it is. Love is here to ruin our lives and break our hearts.”

What we are experiencing now is grief breaking our hearts and ruining what we thought life is. I have grieved often in my life. The death of many close people I loved, divorce, and life as I knew it as I broke through adversity in my life and spiritual journey. Over decades I have experienced the grief of the collective in murders of presidents and leaders, 911, wars, and significant losses in the economy and politics and the way we thought things should be. My heart broke into millions of pieces and revealed a compassionate, loving, healthy, wise limitless loving heart. Breakdown lets our love out.

We are all going through grief in this pandemic where life as we know it will never be the same around the world, and with each one of us. Some people are dying from the virus or just leaving now, and there are no funerals, no weddings, births are with one person nearby, businesses are dissolving, as are paychecks, we are sequestered in our homes away from friends and family and work, and so much more.

Surrendering to life and love and falling apart in grief takes great courage to allow the ego desires to break and the grounded truth to be when the ground is continuing to crack open beneath us. Life is in cycles and not perfect. Life is about change, and challenge, and often fighting to stay alive and keep going.

“We protect our hearts because of the fear that they will break. Yes, they will break. But out of the pieces will be forged a new heart, a strong and fearless heart, a compassionate heart, an invulnerable heart. That is what is required. Nothing less!”~ RAM DASS

BE GENTLE AND KIND AND LOVE YOURSELF AND ALL THROUGH

We stay uplifted and positive as much as we can. Resist becoming lost in fear voices and emotions of victimhood. Remain centered and open to the truth of what is occurring. Have a good cry, take rest as you can. Know that times of high emotion will arise and pass. Nurture yourself and others. Honor you and all, and do the best you can.

WE ARE BREAKING THE EGO

The ego is the structure that gives us definition and keeps us safe or scares us thoroughly. How do you have your ego trained? Let go of the negative to embrace a better now to allow a better future. The ego we break is the hard shells of fear, shame, blame, judgment, anger, suffering, victim, jealousy, and betrayal. As we release these, we aim to achieve positive, present, and productive attributes to live. It is a process of being aware and choosing to live there or sort it out and put it in a better place. My spiritual journey has taken me decades to refine and accomplish programming my ego to feel safe and real in higher wisdom, truth, peace, purpose, love, goodness, beauty, health, and oneness.

RETRAINING THE EGO

Staying positive makes our ego our friend and allows it to work in concert with our higher self-soul that knows how to navigate our world in real safety and purpose. Reaching this place will enable us to grieve less and attain more as we keep going forward. The healthy ego knows that change is good and moves us in new directions. We can see this as an opportunity to be creative, curious, intelligent, and whole.

Instead of just surviving, we focus on thriving, and our ego and soul will take us there. We are not victims unless we choose that by releasing responsibility and allowing harmful programs and people to control us mentally, which translates physically.

Denial is an ego defense mechanism that an early stage of grief to release as soon as we can, to help us feel the truth and move forward from here. Denial is so unsafe, especially now, because it keeps us from responding as we need to. It is essential to act and move very quickly as things continue to change moment by moment. Fear has been a way to control humans for many millennia. Media manipulates us, and it is up to us to turn it off and not buy into what takes our power of wisdom and freedom away.

Open to see the truth in each moment in the day to day life, relationships, health, community, and business. The facts help us make decisions on every level. People-pleasing or hoping someone will do things for us or blaming others does not allow wisdom and self-care to be accessed. Yes, we do need one another in these times. Let us all wake up and do our part. Breathe through the shock and fear and find the truth that is directly here.

Sometimes adjusting to a new reality is crazy-making in our head. Our consciousness is continuously adapting to something new, and we cannot hold onto former ways that do not work anymore. We feel dizzy and disoriented and lost and need rest and repair of body and mind. The only thing we can hold onto is inner wisdom and safety in listening to the thoughts and feelings that ground and support us here and now.

We are all breaking open our hearts and minds and in shock, survival, and grief. Nothing like this worldwide experience has happened before. Be kind and gentle and loving to all, especially you. Do the best you can each day without judgment. We are in tenuous circumstances on every level of our being and the earth too.

We have no idea where all of this is going, so it’s a good idea to find healthy ways to cope every day. Negative is always negating life. Losing ourselves in blame, judgment, and adversity will take us out of reality.

We can choose to fall apart and not heal or recover; this is what makes us mentally ill and lost. Keep bringing yourself to higher thinking and decisions.

Discern truth without judgment and move from here. When we bash others, we bash us. Practice positive self-talk, and to access our inner wisdom will best lead us through each day. Grief will break us open, and it takes knowledge and strength to reach for truth and love and kindness in this time of fear. May you find a path that works for you. Nameste.

We are all in this together.

Always in Love,

Janet StraightArrow

Dear Friends, Sending Love and Healing to All.
This is a profound time on the planet and we are being woken up in many ways.

Do your best to get fresh air and Sun, walk, and nurture yourself in all ways.

Our world has been in major flux for years and calls for balance and alignment with our divine creation.

Let go of fear and see what is under it. Each day on this planet is a gift. Look for the wonder and joy in each breath. Having been through tremendous loss and trauma many times, I know how fear can try to take over and keep us separate from what is happening, and from making good choices.

It is important to know fear and how to let it find its correct place of warning, and then make it work for us instead of sidetracking us.

One of the causes of our current situation unfolding is a self-correction on the planet. Astrology has told us that what has been corrupt and destructive to us will be broken down and is going to change.

As powerful humans, it is up to us to stay awake and do our part and know that the change is ultimately good.

The Earth is a living self-healing being. When noting all of the earth changes, natural disasters, and weather, the earth is saying enough is enough and cleansing itself.

Self-sustaining humanity and planet calls for responsibility, healing, and balance in all areas.

The disrespect of humans, nature, Universal-Spiritual Laws, and more, have manifested suffering and disease in this material world.

There are clear Universal-natural laws that surpass man-made laws that are in control and affect us all. We have had too much tolerance for what destroys us all, and taken too much for granted that it will be alright anyway. It is time for us to wake up and show up now more than ever.

We all have a part in the whole. Each one of us has a purpose for being here. What is our part, is an important question to focus on. How can each one of us help?

We each hold enough light and brilliance to light up a huge city. Let’s shine together and help heal the world.

Healing. As humans we are self-healing beings, we can purify and heal ourselves. Focus on perfect health and self-care. Healing and wholeness all begin with our intent.

We each have choice, and wisdom inside to guide us. It is time to listen to the voice of reason, instead of the silly lies that keep us in illusion and suffering.

Humans give too much power to fear and it disables and distracts us. This is how we are controlled by the media, government, religion, and many things. Notice where you are stuck in lack and terror and even little things that make you feel a victim and stop that now.

Believe nothing you hear and little of what you see. It is all a play, and we are the players, and the played. It is up to us to discern and choose every day.

Let go of panic and extend your vision and thoughts out beyond these two weeks. See the big picture and stay aware of illusions, and lies, and also look for new possibilities. See the world with wonder and make choices that support the good of us, and all.

The world as we know it will continue to change. It is up to us to choose what reality we want to live in. Be courageous and trust the best of us, and note when the worst is playing us.

Be here now. Embrace this precious life, instead of fearing death. This human experience has much to offer us. Let’s live it full out and well and love one another through this most transformational time.

We are not alone, we are all one. Join in a positive wise community in person, phone, and on-line. There are many in spirit that support us as well. Most importantly trust your inner wisdom-higher self. It will keep you safe when you listen.

Peace can be found inside at any time.

Meditate, pray, surrender to the best that can be. We are always love and loved. Be practical, loving, and sincere. Continually reach for higher wisdom, and release fear.

Stay well the best you can. Prayers for all.

The Astrology of these times speaks of the breakdown of what does not support us and the planet. The years 2020-2022 have been predicted to be a time of monumental change on the planet. May we listen and learn and do our part to help create the best outcome.

Life does not just happen to us. We are co-creators in every way.

We are in a major healing phase on this planet. Embrace what is and find your place and voice in a positive way. There are many possibilities that can be very positive after a messy breakdown. When we each participate and support in healthy ways it will help and make a difference for the world and all of us.

Stay Strong.

Blessings and Love, Janet StraightArrow

March 9 Newsletter Thriving through Change

March 1, Newsletter 2020 Wisdom New Classes-Retreats Circles

We are moving through a time of intense transformation, change, and fear. Please use wisdom and self-care in all you be and do. Maintaining quality of life and health has always been the focus for me to share and live. We are being tested by the roller coast energy of now. It’s best to ground ourselves in all we know to be true and reach for the best outcome for all.

“Our best medicine now and always is to focus on health. Abundant sleep, drink lots of water, be positive in our life, eat whole healthy foods, exercise and move, and support our immune system.” Be The Medicine

This week I was remembering the story of another time of intense fear when I was regularly traveling by airplane to study with Masters in different parts of the world.

People would say to me, “Aren’t you afraid to fly now?” I would answer, “No, I trust my inner knowing of my safety. If it would not be safe, my inner wisdom would speak, and I would not fly on that plane.” No Fear – Trust.

I am not afraid to leap and test boundaries as long as my inner calm and peace is in place. Trusting our inner truth meter is a powerful practice to develop. My spiritual journey for fifty-two years has been to discern truth and clear fear from my being. When we know the truth and do not empower fear, our inner wisdom easily discerns truth or lies.

That said, I will also admit there have been many times I have stood at the precipice, even this week, and said, “oh sh*t.”, as I leaped. We never know where we are going until we get there. We may think we should know ahead of time and be in control of every step. This does not work and creates even more hesitation, worry, and fear.

Fear is often at the gate of new beginnings, changes, and opportunities. Slow down, pay attention, quiet your mind, open your heart, and then choose to leap. Free will allows us to redirect, course correct, or choose again along the way.

When we choose for our best there is often an inner peace underneath any fear. As we choose and allow the flow, the fear will go. Fly dear ones and land on your feet.

Always in Love,

Janet StraightArrow

Live in the Positive Present

Focus on Where you Want to Be
Dear Friends,
Our minds are wild and woolly and will take us wherever we allow them to lead us. To be focused and mindful of where we are thinking and speaking is the first place to focus on.Our mind is a major part of creating our reality. For us to take it by the hand and lead it where we want to go is key. Cleaning out the inner complainer, judge, blamer, and jury is the first step. They are visitors that cost us dearly and take up space where our heart and higher mind have a better voice and program to lead us on.

To change our inner and outer gears to a higher truth and reality is a daily practice worth engaging in.

I have had a severely challenged and traumatic life and I developed skills to release, heal, and deal with what is occurring all along in grace and love.

What I have realized was that I kept remembering higher wisdom and love through it all. I was less focused on what others expected and honored what felt correct for me.

This gave me a challenge from the beginning with other children. I would not make fun or hurt others. I did not understand and even became the one made fun of. I left groups instead of caving to groupthink.

I did not follow leaders who were not positive or correct according to my inner compass. Parents, teachers, religious figures, neighbors, friends were respected until they harmed or controlled or forced what I knew was incorrect for others or me.

As a result, I was quiet and shy as this was not easy. Fitting in and following others and people-pleasing often felt wrong so I was very careful who to be myself with.

This is something people who are reawakening to their true self-deal with today. “Who can I speak and be with when I see higher truth and they do not?”

There are more people every day who feel and know these things and you will find your tribe easily. Sometimes we take a break from others to stop and listen to the wisdom within. When the soul leads, we find matching people and energy.

It’s all good. Take a pause or two or three and listen to the inner wise one within. Clear out negative thoughts by not giving them time or energy. Do not participate in negative conversations as they take us down that rabbit hole and we get off track and get lost.

I have realized that we as a culture follow fear instead of positive focus and love, and this is what is most important to notice, stop, and redirect. Instead of revering fear and believing it, see what is being avoided in the positive realm of existence.

When seeing all the harm in the world, do not get caught in the negativity. When we have sides, it’s all illusion and ugly and all are compromised.

Believe nothing in the media. This is an alternate reality. We are being manipulated to be powerless in our inner strength, intelligence, and love.

The best we can do is speak and live in the positive present and deal with negative situations with wisdom and grace and take action to do and be our part every day.

Practice being your best self each day. It takes courage to break from the crowd and be in a higher reality. When we do we are free.

By the way, this is infinitely more fun and can be very productive. I sold Real Estate this way in a market of up to twenty-five percent loss in home values and helped many people sell and buy with great results.

Instead of following the old ways of doing things and negative fears I worked with all professionals and clients with positive focus and creative thinking to gain the best that could be. With care and respect for all, I used intelligence, truth, and wisdom to create the best outcome possible.

Our highest intelligence rises and leads when we release any resistance or fear, and stay in the place of desiring the best results for all. Truth, compassion, and mindfulness work in business, relationships, health, and all of life.

Stay focused on being positive, present, and productive, and see where it takes you each day. This is a powerful practice and a great life.

Enjoy the Journey.
Always in Love,

Dear Friends,
Happy New Moon in Aquarius-Chinese New Year!
New Moons each month offer us an opportunity to begin the month with new clarity and focus. Aquarius is a freedom-loving sign so this month we will focus there.

Every month I share a different piece to the puzzle of healing and living our life in wholeness, holiness, and unlimited being.

Be The Medicine is about a laser focus on being who we are and being the answer and learning the questions that take us there.

This year’s Astrology has been extreme to help us let go of illusions to awaken the truth. Clearing the illusions of the collective and us and what we want to believe, and seeing the truth underneath is key.

Zero tolerance for the lies allows no compromise, and we can be clear, open, empowered, and free. This is important in the macro and microcosm of our lives. Do we want to be free? Are we ready to live healthy, happy, and fully, and take responsibility?

Waking up to truth gives us plenty to be and do to help us and all in this time of planetary challenges more than ever. What good is being spiritual if we are not living our truth and higher selves in everyday life?

A half-truth is even more dangerous than a lie. A lie, you can detect at some stage, but half a truth is sure to mislead you for long.” Anurag Shourie

We live in a half and half-world. I saw as a child how truth and lies were intermingled and I wondered why adults did not realize how crazy it seemed to be negating the beautiful truth and wisdom of life. It is no wonder as children we are confused and rebellious. The world as it is makes no sense. The highest truth is logical and makes sense and there is precious little of it evident. As I like to say, it all gets lost in the sauce.

To awaken our spirit and soul allows us to regain our intelligence and live a life in confidence. It is not possible to be confident in a half and half-world, which is why many people are lost.

The spiritual journey of awakening is first to see the fear-based lies and release them from our lives. This means we may not fit into a box of family, religion, and culture, which are full of beliefs to keep us controlled and compromised.

As we break the egg of the ego, we allow full expression of the soul. This makes it a journey worth taking which ends in grace, peace, and love. Our nature is goodness, peace, happiness, health, love, beauty, light, oneness and truth. These have been the guideposts of my journey. Finding out how to fulfill these in my body and life has been a grand adventure.

The truth does set us free when we fully understand Universal truth, not man-made truth attached to fear. Even the delightful pat quotes and sayings do not take us there until we release ego, attachments, limiting beliefs, and experience the truth of love.

I remember a quote from Carl Jung that says that our greatest challenge is in how we believe our own lies. The ego protects us in ways we accept as truth to keep us from seeing what is off or not correct. Until we are free of lies we continue to compromise us and all.

As we work on our advanced spiritual journey we realize that the most important way of walking this walk is to surrender ego protection and decide to face the lies inside to set us free.

It is only when we see where we are wrong that we can make corrections. No judgment, blame, reasons, or excuses will take us there. In loving compassion we know we are all in this together in our own way and this allows us to face everything and relax.

My purpose as StraightArrow is to cut through the lies and illusions to manifest truth and love and assist all I work with to discover this too. I see what you cannot and lovingly awaken you to the freedom that is always here for you. It is a precious journey to honor you as we liberate the ego.

We are taught against ourselves as powerful, loving humans from birth. There is a good amount of half and half in our world to keep us on edge and off the mark. I love to have people experience who they are and how to be more firmly in their true self in sessions and classes. The goal is to empower themselves to be authentic, confident, and purposeful in everyday life.

We have fun, and our sessions and classes are full of laughter as we do not blame or judge us and honor ourselves and our journey as humans completely. Our true self is magnificent and wise. As we drop the ego disguise, we find us as a diamond shining bright.

The keys to enlightenment, health, relationships, career, and more are built on truth and love. When we learn how to realign with what is true we find success and happiness.

If you want to be the change in the world, you can be the medicine in your life, family, and community. One person at a time helps many.

Always in Love,
Janet StraightArrow website 973-647-2500 Email

Under the light of the Full Moon- Blog-Expanded Class-workshop-retreat schedule

“I first met Janet 5 years ago, on a 1 to 1 coaching/spiritual sessions. She reawakened my spiritual journey that I had put aside and went deeper with her many healing workshops she offers. She has a special gift in teaching and is a natural healer/intuitive. I have learned many tools to use in my everyday life for increased health and well being. I also completed a 5-month reiki master class with Janet. She is very thorough when teaching and is so present and holds the energy of the class that we have no choice but to go deeper into our journey and come out more awakened. I would recommend Janet to anyone interested in going deeper in their spiritual growth or needs guidance with their health/relationships or is looking for a healing session.”Paola Zingaro You are a gem Paola and very talented at all you share. Thank you. Janet StraightArrow

“The channeling and automatic writing class with Janet StraightArrow was truly transformative. I felt myself open up tremendously as I immediately was able to channel beautiful messages from my heart. Throughout the class, I was able to break through barriers and limitations that were blocking me in my writing and my life. Each participant that day was able to recognize more clearly what personally holds us back from not only putting pen to paper but also from experiencing more of our potential. Janet provided us with advice, techniques, and practices we can use every day to become more open and receive divine guidance along the way. Answers I have been seeking are now pouring out of me, and I can write more freely than I ever have before, while feeling more connected and clear as well.

Janets gifts as a Shaman offers you a profound opportunity for a transformative ceremonial experience. Gentle, loving, and focused, we gather in community, purifying ourselves with a chant, and set powerful intentions that support us and all.

“We just finished a Mitote weekend retreat. We were in an amazing space, but the truth is it would not matter where we were. Janet brings the safe container, and then we build upon it. By safe container, I mean a safe place to explore your true self, cut out the illusion and discover who we are. We were able to experience the love within and integrate it so that we can bring it back out into the world more whole and strong and resolved to be our true selves and abide in our true nature.”

Space will be limited to 12, so sign up by 1/3. Join us Saturday 6 pm to Sunday at 9 am .-details below. Still room sign-up today.

*No prior training required. If you know someone who would enjoy this please pass it on.

A Mitote is a high energy and focused Toltec Shamanic ceremony from the Don Miguel Ruiz Lineage, purifying us and raising our vibration to awaken our higher wisdom and truth. A perfect preparation with messages and visions for the new year, and the next stage of our life.

We experience the purification of our body, mind, and spirit. We chant the Gayatri Mantra, which is a high vibration mantra, chanted throughout the midnight ceremony by a smaller group rotating in the center. We chant and dream under the stars in the atrium allowing the raising of your energy, visions, and inner movement.

Janet StraightArrow found her calling as a Shaman in 1992 and trained with a Nagual Toltec Shaman in this ceremony. StraightArrow has led many of these in various retreat locations in 5 states over 18 years. It is a favorite among her students to attend again and again.

SCHEDULE This entire evening till morning is a continual ceremony. We gather in the early evening Saturday for a beautiful circle and opening ceremony. We share light, healthy food, and relax in preparation for the evening.

Rest, relax, journal, and socialize with other participants after the circle and meal, as we prepare for the evening Mitote. Bring your pillow, a bedroll, with cushioning for your dream-sleep time. After the ceremony, there will be several locations for more privacy to sleep before our sunrise ceremony and breakfast. You will be energized and rested. Sunday is a good day to relax and process what came up for you during the evening.

This overnight ceremony is in a private location; the address will is given upon sign-up. $325 to save your space. www.PayPal.me/JanetStraightArrow or checks to Janet StraightArrow, 48 Frederick Place, Morristown, NJ 07960

From Janet. This profound high vibration Shamanic work is my soul’s calling to offer. It does take a lot of energy and preparation before, during, and after to offer this. I am honored to hold the space and support your journey. Janet StraightArrow

A life-changing experience that is well-timed for us to step into 2020.

Our next Mitote is part of our Vision Quest July 31-August 2 in the Catskill Mountains at a private retreat house. See details on this website. If your group is ready for this ceremony contact Janet. She travels for groups or will host at her or other locations.
