Expanding Awareness: True Potential with Gaetano Vivo

Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 1 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author cheap flights lyrics Gaetano Vivo whose book http://1844house.com/tag/thecolumbiarestaurant/ ‘Messages from the Angels of Transparency: Powerful Words from Gentle Souls’ launches on Amazon on Tuesday March 20, 2012.

http://global-mob.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1510456601.0584890842437744140625 Italian born, Gaetano Vivo is one of Europe’s most experienced and sought-after Reiki Masters, practicing in the UK, the US and Italy.

He is a member of the Complementary Medical Association of Great Britain, the International Council of Holistic Therapies, the International Association of Reiki Professionals and the Noetic Association of America. From a young age he has experienced the ‘calling’ of ‘others’ who wish to pass on teachings and wisdoms in order we may make lighter work of our time here on Earth.

Although, due to being brought up in a strict Catholic community, he was forced to ignore this information, he never forgot what he had received. For decades, Gaetano has been treating clients from all walks of life, regardless of faith or creed, believing that the healing power of love is open to all of us. When not touring he divides time between his homes in England and Italy and takes great delight in his garden.

Gaetano’s new book ‘Messages from the Angels of Transparency: Powerful Words from Gentle Souls’ addresses the questions:
“Could wise and wonderful beings contact us from beyond this world and unveil our true potential?

messages_from_the_angels_of_transparency2-300x300  Would knowing that we really mattered enable us to uncover the truth behind our reason for living?”

This fascinating book offers answers, spiritual practices and comprehensive meditations by teacher, healer and author, Gaetano Vivo, which have the potential to strengthen, heal and transform lives and bring hope and inspiration. It also clarifies the true nature of Reiki as a simple, yet profound tool for accessing and accepting the power of universal energy—what we might call ‘love’ or ‘God’—and touches on our fundamental dilemma: Who are we and why do we exist?

More than 20,000 people have already enjoyed Gaetano’s earlier offerings in both English and Italian. This book offers the reader a chance to digest messages from ‘higher beings’ for greater understanding of our own personal evolution. Anyone seeking to live a happier, better life, and has felt the desire to undertake life with greater confidence and self-worth, will relish this book.


Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Gaetano when I got to ask him some questions on life story, love/forgiveness and raising your awareness.
I hope you enjoy it.


Christine Miller: Gaetano, tell me what inspired the messages in your book, and what happened in your life that prompted you to write the Angels of Transparency?

Gaetano Vivo: A few years ago I was going through a personal crisis.  I was teaching a Reiki III class in Naples and during a meditation a big group of Angels appeared before me. They called themselves the Angels of Transparency. It was a big group and the ones that I could clearly see were a group of children angels that were prompting me to stop, stay still and work on myself. They told me how important it was for me to address some issues with my inner child and that was going to be the most important thing for me to do at that time in my life. During this work with my inner child I learned to cherish, nurture and feed him with great love and through this journey of self-discovery I gathered the inspiration to write “Messages from the Angels of Transparency”.

Christine Miller: How important are Love and Forgiveness in expanding our awareness and creating a more peaceful world for ourselves and for the human race?

Gaetano Vivo: Love is the most important thing we have. Receiving and giving love is the most beautiful thing that an individual can experience in his life. Love is the tool that allows us to expand awareness and create a peaceful world around us. It is so important to reach love for ourselves, like healing the inner child, so that we are able to use the power of love to heal others around us. We have to go through a great journey of forgiveness and self-love. Once we have healed ourselves we can move forward into our next step of healing others.

Christine Miller: What stories and meditations would you like to share about working with the archangels which our readers can use now to raise their awareness?

Gaetano Vivo: There are several stories that I could talk about that happened during the writing of my book. The one that has helped me the most is working with my inner child. Realizing that we have a little angel that lives in our heart it is the most important thing, in my opinion, that can happen to us. Working with the inner child and coming to terms with certain things that have happened to you in the past and healing them there is one of the most important parts of this process. So call upon Archangel Raphael who appears with the Angels of Transparency to help you heal your inner child. Working with him you will see how important it is to cherish, nurture and feed him with this great love that both of you need.

My dear friend Dadi Janki of the World Spiritual University speaks about increasing your life span through peace, love and meditation. 

She recently celebrated her 96th birthday, and danced on the stage at her party…she is an inspiration to us all. 

I've been lucky enough to spend time on retreat with her, and to have interviewed her several times.

The Goddess Paradigm – beauty, peace and transformation

TARA-10-FULL

Heart-Tree2Knowing you just have to be somewhere

Last weekend I was invited to a workshop which gave me a big calendar challenge, in that I was already booked for other activities, and initially I declined. But the event kept nibbling away in my mind, that little voice got louder and the whisper became a shout – and I knew I just had to go. So I re-arranged and went off to London’s Docklands to the Orassy Kendron at Westferry.
Partially it was the thought of spending time with Romio Shrestha, who is an artist of extraordinary talent. He has a fascinating history of working with people such as HH the Dalai Lama, which is how I discovered Romio’s incredible paintings. In fact, two of his poster-sized books insisted on accompanying me home from my sojourn in Nottingham with the Dalai, and have had pride of place on my sitting room coffee table ever since.

But there was something else…

I couldn’t quite work out what – after all, I could interview Romio another time, and that would be just fine.

The surprise came from the collection of amazing women who were there – people I had met years before, and not seen for ages – where it felt like we had been together only moments beforehand. People I had never met before, but it felt like I’d known them for many years. The camaraderie and community were a huge pleasure to join.

And the sheer joy of a peaceful, calm and inspiring atmosphere which nurtured us all, connections made, spirits re-kindled and the delight of Romio’s powerful yet playful talk and his explanations of the meanings and qualities of the goddesses he depicts in his paintings. In all, it was a refreshing experience that nourished the soul and spirit, and long may the goddesses flourish.

Just think, if I hadn’t followed that intuition, that gut feeling, I might have missed a superb treat and a re-union with some fabulous soul sisters!

When have you followed you instincts and found it has paid off hugely? 
I’d love to know…please leave a comment below. 

About Romio

“In this lifetime, my Monastery will have no walls.”
- Romio Shrestha -

 

 

Romio Bahadur Shrestha was born into a Newar family in Katmandu in Nepal. When he was five years old, two Tibetan Buddhist monks arrived at the door. Romio, they said, was the seventeenth reincarnation of the master Tibetan Thangka painter Arniko and they gave to him a stock of valuable art materials, explaining that he would, one day, form his own school of painting.

An example of one of Romio’s works.

The Taras

This was inspired by the five days I spent with the Dalai Lama in Nottingham in 2008. 

 

 

A Mote of Dust Suspended in a Sunbeam…

 BIGGER PICTURE

I'm prompted, even provoked, today by the horror and human helplessness in the face of what's happening in Japan and the Pacific. In spite of being probably the best prepared country in the world for such events, there's little or nothing that can be done about the repercussions. 

It's easy to get wrapped up in the mundanities of life, fretting about details in the moment. Then something massive comes along and refocuses the attention in a much bigger arena and we realise what minute specks we are.

This photo of the earth as a pale blue dot, taken from Voyager in 1990 from around 6 billion kilometres away shows just what a tiny presence we really have in the universe.

 

FRAGILE HUMAN ENDEAVOURS

We are reminded also how fragile our human endeavours are in the face of natural forces. The empathetic feelings evoked by today's earthquake in Japan, with the Tsunamis relentlessly wiping out careful human constructions and carrying them off in epic tides that resemble a science fiction monster devouring huge objects in black treacly horror points up our physical impermanence.

Someone on TV said that he didn't think the Japan earthquake was connected to the recent New Zealand Christchurch earthquake. What? All that shifting, seething, abrading rock, lava and heat under the ocean, those faultlines along the Pacific Rim that make it the most volatile area for seismic activity on earth – not connected? 

To me, it's all connected, and it's all moving… all the time. 

I love Carl Sagan's account below. A moving experience and very timely. No further words needed from me. 

PALE BLUE DOT

 

Here's the transcript:

Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.
