When asked to search for a treasure, I did not find one treasure throughout the Sedona Mago Retreat center.
This picture is a visual representation of the treasure taken at the center of the Mago Labyrinth.
I treasure the sacred journey. I treasure the ups and the downs, and upside downs. I treasure the journey into oneself to know thyself, experience, and express a state of joy yet peace. To integrate the wisdom of the journey to grow through the experience, yet also feel the sense of balance in the moment. The moment too shall pass, and it is not for me to remain in such a position for longer than needed. Just as I am in the center of this labyrinth, I too must come out to be where I am Divinely guided to be. I am in Sedona in the moment of the picture, and now I am in Long Beach CA in this moment. Physically I may appear to be in a certain time zone or location, yet consciously beyond a certain time or space. The treasure is to flow with the curves of the journey, to maintain a state of balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It is perfectly ok to fall out of balance, as this also teaches us how that feels.
I treasure trusting in the Mother Earth through the journey of life, whether I am well balanced or if I fall on my face. Life may not always appear balanced, but there are many things we may not be aware of or see from our current perspective. As I am physically upside down in this picture, this shows the treasure of viewing with alternative perspectives integrated with creativity; to learn what needs to be learned, but knowing the wisdom is already within. The Divine teacher within reflected into the environment, relationships with ourselves, other people, and the Mother Earth. I treasure the teachers all around us and being the humble student.
For me, the treasure is not an object to be found, but an awareness, experience, and expression of Being.
Thank you for hosting the beautiful Earth Day event at the Sedona Mago Retreat.
Spur of the moment trip to Sedona for Earth Day! I actually didn't know until the day of! haha =D
We returned from a trip to the Sequoias and Ojai that lasted from Friday - Sunday night. On monday morning I received a text from a friend saying that she was on her way to Sedona and was asking if we wanted to join her there. Hmm.. tired from the few days before, should I go? That was a quick decision! We quickly finished our errands in the morning and left for Sedona by early afternoon.
This was her first time to Sedona, so I wanted to make it fun for her while she was there. Took her to airport mesa and bell rock, teaching her some flow movements, reiki master, and a few other things.
She did not expect to climb this high, as she had huge cuts the size of the grand canyon on her heels and a few other health opportunities to improve. She was processing different emotions and energies throughout the climb and after, but that is ok. All part of the journey =)
She had to leave the next day to take care of a few things and attend a class back in cali.
Stephanie and I stayed an extra night as we hung out at the Sedona Mago Retreat for an Earth Day event!
The healing garden at Mago retreat is very amazing. I love the perfect balance of elements. I wanted to climb the willow tree and jump off, but there were many people surrounding it. haha =P
As you can see, I am having lots of fun with my new little camera. I am no expert, but this makes it fun to capture pictures. I will write a review in the gear section in the near future.
The lunch provided was created from their organic garden. Simply delicious and the picture does not describe the yumminess. Chilled Mango soup, organic salad, enchilada (under that big leaf and cheese), and brown rice. The chef is awesome and will create a meal depending on the needs of the person if necessary, like vegan or gluten free or any allergies.
Afterwards, they gave us a bag and Ichi Lee's book. He is the creator of the retreat center and it talks about his spiritual journey and story about Sedona. We then went to one of the many labyrinths they had at the retreat. During a few of the exercises after the meal, we met an awesome person named Joshua. He passed on some valuable insight. Thanks to him if he is reading this! The exercises included some yoga stretches and healing.
To celebrate towards the night, we hung out with friends Hae Jung and Astara. It was at the yoga studio and healing center. There was an opening ceremony, ecstatic dancing, harp playing, drumming, and more. Overall, an awesome trip like always!
What is your name?
If your name is Michael, do you tell people... Hey I'm Mike! Yes it is casual, but names hold a certain vibration. Michael Jordan doesn't hold the same energy as Mike Jordan.
Archangel Michael, He who is like God! Very powerful name. Here is a great friend, Physical embodiment of Archangel Michael energy. Oh yes, the Archangels get together to create awesomeness with teamwork in the physical as well!
Archangel Michael or Archangel Mike? hmm lol.. Archangel Jophiel? or.. Joe.. Archangel Chamuel? or... Cham
The name chosen for me is Chamuel Bachiller. Named as one of a few living embodiments of Archangel Chamuel. When my brothers, Zadkiel, Jophiel, and I were born. our mother had visions of each of us before being born.
Zadkiel was brought down with a disc like shape of light. When he was physically born, he was slightly violet in color, tuned to the archangel that bears the name. He looked mestizo. As long as I can remember, he likes eating mexican and latino food. Archangel Zadkiel's etheric retreat is over cuba.
The vision of Jophiel was that he emerged out of an egg looking shape in the vision. When he was born he was more yellow and chinese looking. Archangel Jophiel's etheric retreat is in China.
The vision of me before being born was that I was brought down with a host of swirling angels. When I was born, I was more pink, tuned to the pink ray of Archangel Chamuel.
When I was being baptized, the lady that baptized me laughed and said to the congregation, "he has the same look of the actual Archangel Chamuel."
I did not always tell people that my name was Chamuel. At school, teachers could not pronounce my first or last name. "is Cha-MoOoL BacheLor present in the room?"
Seriously... People appeared to have a hard time pronouncing my name. Other kids called my Chamu, like Shamu. I started to tell people, "just call me Cham"
What did I just do? I removed one of the most powerful aspects of the name out. EL (meaning God). It became an interesting experience. Yes, I was able to relate more to those around me, but it felt like a part of me was missing. Perhaps this was part of the experience I needed to become more immersed to better understand the people around me. Accepting something a little less than we are capable of, just to relate better with others.
It was not until high school, where I had an awesome teacher whom was also the basketball coach ask me, how do I correctly pronounce your name. I said "just call me cham". His response was "DAMMIT if your name is CHAMUEL, I am going to call you by your name! Not butcher it and half ass it!" That was a nice little wake up call and perspective. I don't have to be something less than I am, just to be accepted by others. I needed to accept me for being me.
Well, in college, I repeated the same thing.. Call me Cham.. and that is how people knew me as. "That is Cham, he is a chill quiet guy." It was not until my father passed away from this realm, that I had another wake up call. People were coming to me for guidance, and I needed to step into who I really am; The Divinity expressing through this vehicle. No longer just a Cham to relate with the masses, but also Chamuel, One who accepts the responsibility of an Archangel incarnate.
I have had some people call me a fallen angel working with satan and lucifer. By all means, if that is what they would like to believe, power to them to believe that story. But, is it possible there are Angelic streams of energy that willingly embodied here to assist others? Is it possible that Lucifer, the lightbringer morning star, also did the same, but with a different mission? A mission to appear of darkness, as a wake up call to those to balance the energy within themselves. God is like, I give a lesson to this person, but they are not listening to their intuition or guardians.. Hmm, Lucifer, I have a special mission for you, they aren't listening to our wake up call, can you go get their attention? hahah. Perhaps he is the unconventional angel to appear as the darkness that is truly balance with the light? Who can really know for sure. Like I said before, everything is just a nice story we can choose to believe or not. In the accepting of the Belief System, it can either limit us, if fear based BS. Or it can empower us with Joy and Love, yet peace.
Hmmm.. What about Bachiller? What is up with that? I did a little research on my ancestors. Supposedly originates from France, with a group of ministers and paladins. Not just meaning a bachelor in a certain subject or a single man. What was this group protecting? A few of them eventually traveled to Spain and England. So I'm feeling part of my ancestors went from France, to Spain, to Philippines, to the United States of America. There is a group of them that also went to New England in the 1600's. A group of philosophers that were interested in a Free people that were Free thinkers. Rev. Stephen Bachiler founded Hampton in New Hampshire. It was said in records he was a fighter for freedom and zealous for human rights. This was drawing some connections to questions I asked before. I asked for a sign if I am somehow related to some specific lineage. Lo and behold, I found information regarding a Magdalene College, Oxford and a Mary Magdalene in the picture. hahah. The story goes deeper, but that is enough information to get one reflecting. Here is a picture regarding this supposed ancestor.
What is your name? What are your reasons for choosing certain nicknames? How do the different names make you feel? Really tune in and feel the awareness of sensations when you say each name out loud several times. All it takes is One degree to make a difference from 32f frozen water to 33f liquid water. The same concept with names, all it takes is one letter in a name to make a difference. Numerology and all those can be saved for a different post.
Is it ok to choose to be called Cham? Of course it is, there are lessons I learned from it. How about being called Chamuel? Yes to that too. That is why I use both tactically. Hence, Life in a Cham.
I hope you are able to tune into the subtle vibrations of The Wisdom of a Name. Leave a comment and tell us about your name! =)
Happy April 15th! A day of Prosperity and Abundance!
When you think of money... How does it make you feel? Do you feel great? Do you have so much money that you can invest in others and help them launch their dreams? Or Do you feel stuck, needing more money to pay those bills?
Are you focused on surviving... or thriving?
If we ask ourselves better questions, we get better answers. If we understand the system a little better, we can make more efficient plans and choices. There are many details about changes that need to happen with our current financial system such as fractional reserve banking, truths about the irs and income tax, birth certificates and social security, and the true value of the dollar. Those that would like to travel down the rabbit hole, there is a wealth of information waiting to be revealed
The dollar is a tool and stream of energy to assist in the creation of something, or it's destruction. Today, many people may be focused on all their money going to taxes and bills. What does that mean, and what feeling is conveyed? A feeling of lack, stress, chaos. We never really own money. The moment we attempt to hold onto it and set a claim, we are really affirming that we fear we may not have enough. What is enough money? Everyone has as goal of how much they think they need. The wealthy understand they don't own the money. The wise understand; this too shall pass.
There are many spiritual people that I know, dealing with financial challenges. These challenges are opportunities for growth and mastery for the aspects of ourselves that need balancing. One can focus on positive thinking and say, " The infinite abundance of the universe flows through me. I am grateful for all the financial blessings." This may feel great, but does it pay the bills? With the visualizations and affirmations, it creates a blueprint. A blueprint just sits there. It takes action to make it happen. Many opportunities may reveal themselves, and it becomes our responsibility to go for it. It won't necessarily happen how we want it to happen or expect it to happen. Open the realm of possibilities. Money does not just come from a normal job or the lottery or gambling. It can come from all directions. Become an investor in yourself and others. Open the doorway to not just money, but Prosperity.
Prosperity reflects the balance in all aspects of our lives. Our physical health, emotional relationships with ourselves and others, our financial situation, our sense of fulfillment and purpose, our continued growth and contribution back to society.
It does not matter if someone has $10 million dollars... If their relationship with their significant other is collapsing because of not enough time spent together, suddenly all the money in world no longer means anything (in that moment). If someone has all the money, has a beautiful family, but does not have the health to enjoy life; that becomes the focus for improvement. The theme is Balance.
I used to offer my services for free and just ask for a love offering. I believed it should be widely available for all. I would travel far distances, and spend long hours helping people. Yes, this was a very fulfilling, for one aspect of life. The challenge was that I spent more resources than I was generating to be sustainable. This aspect of my life needed balancing. Many people did not donate enough to this mobile ministry to pay for the gas to arrive at the location, and let alone drive back. This became an opportunity for growth and awareness. Some people think, it is spiritual, so It should be free. Yes it is free, but isn't everything spiritual in a sense? Many people I helped for free did not see the value in themselves and in the services offered. Another awareness of growth was that I needed to value myself and my time spent. Time is something that can not exactly be bought, thus must be spent wisely. For those that felt value, they gave a donation, and they were more likely to put into action what they learned.
There are those that do not have finances at the moment. I am perfectly fine with trading services or other ways not dealing with money. But to those that say.. "That is too expensive, I can't do that" they have literally just limited themselves and placed a ceiling above their head. Ask a better question. "How can I make this happen?" This opens the flow of creativity to make things possible.
How can we let more prosperity flow in our lives? Through the ABC's. Taking Action, maintaining Balance, and utilizing Creativity. We decide wisely where to put our time, effort, and energy. What do I invest in? I invest in self development and improvement. I invest in skills and tools to utilize those skills efficaciously. Occasionally I invest in a few of these. I trade in a few of those green pieces of cotton/linen dollars and exchange it for silver and gold.
I invest in books to see perspectives of people in other fields. I have read these books. These are a few of the books that have assisted me in being more aware in finances, but more importantly viewing things with a different perspective.
I invest in health, quality food, community, and giving back to help others develop a creative perspective in life. I also invest in a global index, in the US, Europe, and Asia. Money can be a touchy issue for many people. Instead of money, lets focus on abundance.
What is abundance?
A bun dance.
At this time, I want each of you to stand up, shake your buns, and dance. Enjoy the other aspects of your life that are doing well. Celebrate that health. Celebrate the relationships. Celebrate for just being. We shouldn't take everything so seriously with all these financial opportunities that arise. Complaining and worrying won't get us anywhere. Might as well make the best of it and enjoy the ride. Wisdom, dancing, and a dose of laughter are sure to help us move along.
Prosperity and abundance are like gardens within us and around us. What seeds do you water in the garden of your mind? Are you letting the weeds grow out of control, strangling the plants that are edible and produce nutritious fruits and seeds? Visualizing that the garden is perfect with all the weeds is one choice. Another choice is to be proactive and make the necessary steps and action for change. Once we are back into balance within ourselves, we naturally thrive. This becomes reflected into the garden of life around us, through the people we interact with and how we respond to different situations. One seed is all it takes to create an abundant forest.
If there is anything to take out of this article, it is to create a plan, develop the relationships with ourselves and others, invest our time and energy wisely, add some movement and fun, and take action. The quickest way to achieve our dreams are to assist others in achieving their dreams.
Happy Birthday Alexander Leon the Great!
This baby is amazing. He has overcome life threatening obstacles one after another, just to become stronger than ever before. The doctors said his chances of survival were very low. We say, not on our watch. This baby truly exemplifies strength, persistence, and success in being the impossible made possible. Blessings to this great spirit and all newly incarnating during this great time.
To Rochelle and Luis, keep up the awesome parenting. Both of you are doing great. You are both of great value guiding this child. Rochelle, continue the exercises and healing every day! haha =)
