My Roots: Hilda Charlton

I've talked to you about Hilda on many occasions. This is the first time I've found some video to share with you.  Hilda was my teacher when I was a teenager.  Even in this little clip, I think you'll see very clearly how strong her influence was on me and how it remains a big part of me to this day.

I hope you enjoy spending a few moments with my teacher, Hilda Charlton.

With Love,
Rebbie

PS – The next YOFA 101 Meditation Workshop has been scheduled.  I'll be telling you more about it very soon.  You can sign up here: Learn How to Meditate

When I was a teenager I used to attend Hilda's Thursday night Satsang. At that time we met at St Luke's Church in New York City's Greenwich Village. That was a profound experience for me, but there is way more to the story of Hilda's role in my life than what took place at those meetings.  (And, for anyone who was there, and I know you folks are out there because you write to me from time to time, you know that the energy of those gatherings was powerful, extra-ordinary, and inspiring enough to last a lifetime.)

There is more though…

I have to back up a bit. 

The reason I knew Hilda was because she was working intensely on healing my sister, Shelli.  In fact, one of my clearest memories of Hilda was when the doorbell would ring and my mother would open the door to our apartment. And there was Hilda, in her sari, and her English accent, and an aura of Love expanding out in every direction, unlike anyone else who ever rang our doorbell. 

And yet, this was a common occurrence.  Hilda was there, ringing our doorbell and entering our apartment like clockwork.

So, I've been reflecting on how huge Hilda's influence has been on me.  Her presence as a healer was such a big part of my formative years, that now, as I sit to do a YOFA jhe Session two times a week, I'm so grateful for my roots with someone who is probably one of the most remarkable healers and spiritual teachers of the 20th Century.

It's hard to describe the specific influence that Hilda still has on these remote inner alignment sessions that I do, but I want to acknowledge her and give her credit for much of my training – even if it was largely by osmosis!

When I do an inner alignment session for the people on the jhe list, I send an email explaining the specifics of the session.  I'm posting the email update that went out to the members today after I did today's jhe session.

Today's YOFA jhe Session Email Update:

I did a YOFA jhe Session for you today.

With today's alignment comes an
intensification of personal empowerment.

This comes not from having power over others
but as a result of an intimate relationship
with the source of all creation.

Abraham (Abraham-Hicks.com) teaches us of the
profound relationship between freedom and
empowerment.  These are different names for
the joyful end of the emotional scale.

With today's inner alignment with your
essence, you gain access to great personal
freedom and empowerment. This happens as a
result of deliberate alignment with the
ever-present, sacred freedom at the portal
where the *now* enters your personal energy
system.  (Find out more about how this works
in the root chakra section of "Rooted in the
Infinite
.")

As a result of today's session I expect you
to experience breakthroughs in any area of
your life where you have been feeling stuck.

You may notice that you are no longer driven
by old self-sabotaging habits, addictions,
or negative tendencies. 

What a relief! 

When those patterns release-even just a little
bit-and Law of Attraction gets hold of your
true brilliance and brings you more of that,
well, let's just say there are fireworks in
your field of attraction and you shine your
true light.  This is the fast track to
success in any venture.

You may notice the results of this session in
funny ways.  You may have an enhanced
feeling of rhythm in your body and you may
find yourself tapping your toe or wanting to
dance.

You may find the faces of the people you meet
to be unusually beautiful – friends, family
and strangers alike.  When you see their
light shining through their human form, their
beauty is remarkable. That is one of the
probable results of this session.

You may have a surge of authentic positive
self-esteem.  This is because as the ego
comes into balance, you can own your
magnificence in a way that does not threaten
others.  In fact, it inspires the expression
of their greatness. Mutual appreciation
springs spontaneously from these
interactions.

I am honored by, and grateful for, the
opportunity to do this session for you.

With Love,
Rebbie

Spiritual Sensitivities

hilda-new-sun200.jpg"Today children being born in the world are ushering in the New Age of God Consciousness.  They are born aware of their intuitional and spiritual nature…

"Many a person with lack of understanding will say, 'Stop your imagination!" or 'Don't lie!" and as a result, the child turns within and hides his or her true nature.  And perhaps the spiritual side of the child never opens again or because of this early scar, opens after they have suffered in the world unnecessarily, due to the hard shell of protection they created for themselves."

I pulled this quote from The New Sun by my teacher of many years ago, Hilda Charlton.

This book was written in 1989, and the children she is talking about are now moving into young adulthood.  So, if you are in your late teens or early twenties, this statement is directly for you.  And it is meant to soothe your spirit and inspire you to not only trust, but embrace your intuitive nature and your role in the evolution of human consciousness.

And if those born about 20 years ago with a deeper and broader intuition are crashing into the hardened belief systems of mass consciousness, what about those of us who may smilingly remember young adulthood but who are now watching our hair turn gray?  What about the sensitive souls who have struggled, maybe all our lives, in a world that seemed strange and unsympathetic to our sensitivities?

How did you deal with your spiritual perceptions when you were a child growing up in whatever decade you found yourself here? Did you have mentors?  Did you feel isolated?

The sensitivities of the children can humble us as adults.  These young fresh beings have access to something that we may have lost touch with long ago.

Let's love and welcome the spiritual perception in our children.  Let's revive and nourish it in ourselves.

I invite you to be the sensitive, beautiful, spiritual harbinger of the New Age that you most certainly are if you have read this far.

Happy HolyDays.

With Love,
Rebbie

Hilda and the Message in the Code

hilda.jpg

Thank you!

After reading the comments and emails I received on my last post,  I see that Hilda’s presence is still strong and her message still strikes a chord.

So, here is another story I thought you might enjoy.

I was a teenager when I first met Hilda in 1971.

Fast forward to 2006. I got an idea for a book while in meditation preparing for a workshop.  The idea was to create a book of Hilda stories collected from the people who were her students.

The only problem was that I was no longer in touch with any of those people.

So I decided to set up a webpage for people to come to and leave their stories.  In the process of setting up the page, I inserted a code to reduce spam.

I'm sure you've seen this many times. The code displays a sequence of funny looking letters that you have to type into a form to determine that you are a real person being added to the list. 

I hesitated to place this code on the page because, since the code words are randomly chosen, many of the words that typically show up for the visitor to type are negative, unwanted, and do not match the vibration I wanted for the website.  And since I am so sensitive to the vibration of words I tripped over this a bit.

In the end, I decided it was more important to have the code than not to, so I inserted it.

To my amazement, the first code word that came up was “tabla.” 

I blinked my eyes.  “Tabla?”

I had never seen a word like this come up as a code word before.  I checked my dictionary to see if “tabla” was also the name of something mundane like an airplane part or a decongestant spray. 

Nope.

All it said was “A small hand drum from India.” 

Okay, Hilda.  I see.   You are behind this idea, aren’t you? 

I worked some more and got a couple of mundane code words popping up as I tested the page.  I went back into doubt.  “Oh that was just a coincidence.  Maybe I shouldn’t bother with this project.  After all, … blah blah blah ….(all my little-self excuses)."

The next code word that showed on my screen was “swami.”

“Swami!” 

I have never seen a word like that show up in the computer program before!  Ok Hilda!  I see!

The very next word was “anoint.”  I thought I’d better see what the dictionary definition of anoint was.  “To choose by or as if by divine intervention.”

Okay, Okay, I get it.  Move forward with the project.

Well, I set up the page and got distracted by other things for a few weeks.  It sat quietly without a visitor. 

Since no one was finding the page, I sat down to compose a letter asking people for their Hilda stories.  When I went to the page to check it, I had completely forgotten about this code word episode.  As the page opened, there was the code word.  Oh yeah!  Let's see what it is this time. “Intone.”  Hmmm  Just to be sure, I looked it up.  “To recite in a chanting voice.”

About a week later it came to my attention that the idea for this project occurred to me within days of what would have been Hilda's 100th Birthday.  

Well, I never did collect the stories for the book so, if you were a student of Hilda’s, feel free to leave your story as a comment on this post.  Who knows?  Maybe the book is still composing itself in the ethers.

And, if nothing else, this story of spirit-permeating-technology can certainly assure you that no matter how we evolve, and no matter what type of tools we may use, the message of spirit can still come through in ways that will knock your socks off.

With Love and Appreciation,
Rebbie

Meeting Hilda on the Street

hilda-new-sun200.jpgNYC used to be my home. 

I lived in the city during intense parts of my life and a big segment of my spirit stays there.  But now, I rarely go.

Well, on Friday, I got on the train, rolled into Penn Station, and started walking down 7th Avenue.  The energy of the city greeted me like an old friend and I began an affirmation that went something like this: “God is helping me in every moment of every day.”  

After about half a block of that affirmation, maybe even less, I turned my head, and there, on a table of used books, was a familiar image of my teacher from so many years ago, Hilda Charlton.

In all my years of wandering the city, I have never seen one of her books out for sale.  It can be hard to find them in a bookstore, no less out on display on a busy street.  I knew this was related to my affirmation, and $5 later that book was in my bag and a big smile was on my face.

The book is called “The New Sun” and you can get it at http://HildaCharlton.com if it doesn’t just manifest in front of you.

Once you get the book, you can flip to page 45 and read the poem to a “Smiling Stranger.” Hilda says:

“How few in this hurly-burly of modern life pause to see God’s loving creation and His perfect image of beauty in the passerby…Greet all with a happy smile of inspiration and say to yourself, “Everybody, I love you.’”

Would you like me to highlight more of Hilda’s messages here?

 Let me know by leaving a comment below.  

I think this book appearing on my physical path through the sea of passersby on 7th Avenue was a nudge in the direction of sharing more Hilda with you.  

Let me know if you’re interested.

Everybody, I love you,
Rebbie
