18-years ago I was introduced to the work of St. Teresa of Avila by a Franciscan Priest while on retreat. He got up to speak about how he had been studying the “Interior Castle” By St. Teresa and how life changing it had been for him. When I got home I immediately ordered her book. Since then I have been a student of the “Interior Castle”. This book and its tools have inspired me and assisted in the spiritual path I have been led on ever since. I believe Theresa was way beyond her time. She was a true mystic.
Studying the Interior Castle brings us on a journey through our own Energy System to our core, our inner fire, our soul. It is a practice, a way to live more consciously. Not live perfectly as we are humans, but to be more aware in our actions. The Soul wants us to live authentically according to our Soul’s purpose and our contract with the Divine. The soul always guides us back to that contract and usually the lives we have built don’t fit with that Divine Plan. It takes deep work and processing to do the work to make our life more aligned to the call of our soul. Once you stir the soul you can never stop the work. It is a commitment and if you stop your soul will remind you. Sometimes in ways you wish it didn’t. Lots of life crisis and dramas are wake up calls that the soul uses to lead us to making changes for our better good. Everything is meant to build up our soul stamina because we need stamina to really and truly step forward into the guidance that our soul’s give us. We need stamina to trust that guidance and fearlessly make changes and leaps of faith. The Grace you receive is well worth it. Anchoring inside to one’s soul is a feeling like nothing else! During difficult times being able to anchor into your interior castle is like a calm within a storm. You are protected in your castle.
In the past 18 years I have taken many classes, learned many healing modalities, read many books. I have learned much but my biggest teacher has been my Soul. She is connected to the Divine and has given me guidance and teachings. My soul never lies to me and teaches me according to my own contract with the Divine. I have learned more from my soul than anything else. I have learned
that to assist others in the world you need to assist yourself. The healing begins first with you and as you heal and peel away layers you become a clearer instrument to hold space for another. I feel this healing process is a lifetime process and commitment. When we stray off the path we are guided back to it. For me personally this work of journeying through the Interior Castle and its mansions has had profound impact on me. More than any other work I have been involved in. I realized that facilitating healing from within the castle for me or others was powerful. I love doing energy healing and spiritual healing. I have worked with many modalities. For me I realized if I was in my castle and facilitated a healing I didn’t have to do much accept to be present and lay my hands on the person. Then I realized as I anchored into my Interior Castle and went through the mansions, I assisted the healee with their energy on the levels of their mansions. I realized it was most important to anchor into my soul through the Interior Castle while doing Energy Healing and it had powerful and profound results. I didn’t have to get caught up in my head and all different modalities. I just had to step out of the mind and move into the Soul.
This is how I decided to offer the Interior Castle Soul Healing Certification Course. This Course will be 7 classes over the course of year of facilitating journeying through the mansions and incorporating teachings and practicing of facilitating energy healing while embracing the energy field of your Interior Castle. I do refer to “The Interior Castle” By St. Teresa of Avila and “Entering the Castle” by Caroline Myss. I think Caroline Myss’s book is a wonderful translation making the original book much easier to assimilate into our modern time. I worked with the original text so when Caroline’s book came out I was quite excited.
"Contain your experience with the divine so that it does not escape you but rather shapes you.
Silence will help you avoid engaging in the games of competition and illusion that regularly seduce us in the outside world.
Silence also helps you avoid distraction. It helps focus the busy mind---the mind that always has to be doing something, thinking something, the mind that always has to be otherwise engaged lest it become introspective and allow the soul's voice to override its own.
The silence I am describing is a silence that you use to contain the grace you receive when you enter the Castle of your soul. This quality of silence allows you to engage in discernment.
You carry this silence within you, even when you are with others. It allows you to hold your center amid the chaos of your life; it keeps you clear so that you do not do or say things you will regret or make decisions out of fear.
