It has been a long time since I have reached out! My summer was packed full of traveling, from short getaways to see family, to an international adventure to experience an ancient site. (See pics and info on the Bosnian Pyramids here). One roadtrip included my high school reunion. A highlight of that trip involved visiting my high school in Charleston Il. The tour was complete when we were able to sit in our old Driver's Ed simulators (picture below). Yes, they still had the same ones! 

On the way to the reunion, I was drawn to visit places my ancestors lived. These experiences included looking up old addresses and finding run down homes in place of the well-kept photographic images from 50 or more years ago.  We went to the small towns where my parents were born, but I had never visited. I also made sure to see where my ancestors worshiped, went to school and were ultimately buried.  The trip also included going to Murray State University and finding my mom's yearbook pictures in the historical library, and venturing to Southern Illinois University to get a feel for the turf my dad walked after serving in the Navy during WWII.

I am sure you have heard the saying, “history repeats itself, or at least it rhymes”. There may be a good reason for this. As I have postulated before, we are co-creating our reality through our consciousness, like through a projector, but most of this projection comes from our subconscious. These programs, much like software code, were laid down primarily during the first 7 years of life, through absorbing the energy signature of our family. They were also coded during conception from our ancestors DNA, epigenetically, according to Bruce Lipton, Phd. History is repeating itself because we are re-living the same programs as our ancestors, thus playing a movie, or record album, in our current setting with a similar theme.

Blog: The Giving Tree

A Tale of Codependence?

June 11, 2023

Written By Rebecca Paris

Recently I was reminded of the book, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. This heartwarming children’s book actually is a pretty dynamic portrayal of codependency. Psychology Today describes codependency as follows:

Codependency is a dysfunctional relationship dynamic where one person assumes the role of “the giver,” sacrificing their own needs and well-being for the sake of the other, “the taker.” The bond in question doesn’t have to be romantic; it can occur just as easily between parent and child, friends, and family members. - Psychology Today

The term “codependency” first appeared in substance abuse circles to describe a lopsided relationship that has been consumed and controlled by one person’s addiction. It has expanded into more general terms of unequal relationships.

Are you consistently saying yes to things you want to say no to? Or, are you not even sure how you feel and auto pilot takes over? Well…your body knows. A “no” feels like constriction and may be accompanied by shallow breathing. You will probably feel a vague sense of unease when you are in the situation or just thinking about it.

What is showing up for me right now is the importance of boundaries and self love. This theme has been presenting itself over the last several months in different variations. It seems I am being tested in diplomatically walking the tight rope between honoring self and meeting the needs of others.

More and more, I am seeing life like a metaphor. We play out on this stage, in the material world, experiences our soul needs to return “home” and find wholeness. Just like our bodies are always communicating with us, so are our daily life experiences and interpersonal relationships.

Here is a story that happened to me recently:

I went to our Property Association Office (POA) to pick up some packages. I often leave the car running and just jump out and get the packages. However, this time when I returned, I was shocked to find out that I was locked out of my car… with it running. My purse and phone were also inside.

Blog: Let’s Get Real

Natural vs. Artificial: The Blended Reality

July 29, 2022

Written By Rebecca Paris

Are we currently living in a blended reality, one organic/natural, and the other synthetic/artificial? I assert that we are. When I think of natural vs. artificial, the idea of organic sugar compared artificial sweetener comes to mind. One comes from the earth and the natural order of things, and one is created in a lab, like the robot above. I have recently come to realize that there is a part of us that is organic, connected to prime creator and nature’s intelligence system. This part of us is full of life and is founded upon unconditional love, purity, freedom and creation. There is also a part of us attached to the false matrix and AI.

The short answer to this question could be: not using the right type of love for the situation or thinking that being a martyr is a type of love. 

If you are reading this blog, you have most likely been there…flat out exhausted caring for others before tending to your own needs. This may be caring for children, elderly parents, clients or friends before taking care of yourself. Somehow being a martyr was promoted as a good thing. Unfortunately, all martyrdom does is get you out of the sync with the natural energetic laws of the universe.

Why I decided to discard all objects with Metatron’s Cube and the “Flower of Life” Symbols

Most of you are probably familiar with Metatron’s Cube and the “Flower of Life”. These symbols are all over yoga studios, new age crystal shops and materials that say that they support ascension… but do they really? Have we really stopped to understand what these symbols represent?

Hope you are enjoying your summer!

I recently purchased a new computer and took the opportunity to clean out old files and organize everything. What a great feeling.  I was able to take a "journey" through the different phases of my life that were captured in these computer files. I reminisced about the volunteer jobs I had after I left my 9 - 5, as well as all of the chapters in my children's lives. I ran across a poem written by my daughter when she was a teenager called, "Surrender to the Tide".

As Raising the Vibe continues to evolve and adapt to our changing world, we have decided to eliminate the General Member category. Since our mission is to expand consciousness, we have been hesitant to make all or even a portion of the content for "members only".  In addition, current members may have noticed that the Paypal auto debit for renewal has been disabled a few months ago as well.   Your money is directed energy, and reoccurring subscriptions sometimes sneak up, so Raising the Vibe wants to make sure that all donations are intentional.

Happy Easter!  As we celebrate ascension today, it is a good time to reflect on releasing the blocks that hold us in the small self, so we can ascend to higher consciousness.  A key to integrating the parts of us (shadow selves) that are circling the lower vibes is being present and attuned to what is showing up in our daily life. When we feel a strong emotional reaction to something, it is a clue that our subconscious wants us to recognize a wounded, fearful part of ourselves to integrate back in so we can become whole. Detachment and surrender are good ways to do this. (Read the rest by clicking title.)

As per usual, what is showing up in my life as a theme is often the subject of my monthly blog. Most of you are familiar with the famous Buddha quote: 

“The root of suffering is attachment”. -Buddha

We are not just attached to people and objects, we are attached to all of these things as this visual shows. We may be attached to our opinion or get stuck in a rut with our routine. One way to help with many of these attachments is to stop identifying with our small self or ego. (Read the rest by clicking title.)

Do you often feel like a victim? Do you feel that life is unfair and that you got the wrong end of the deal? Do you think there is at least one abuser in your life? Or, do you feel you would be much happier and successful if “these” people would stop taking advantage of you? If so, you may be projecting victim consciousness.  (Read the rest by clicking title.)

The Spring Equinox, March 20, is here. This is a time of Fire/Aries energy. As we emerge from the winter, a time of solitude and hibernation, we can decide where we want to put our precious energy and intention. What dreams are you ready to manifest that best represent the new you who is emerging?  What are you going to stand for, and almost more importantly during this great awakening time in our history, what aren't  you going to stand for?  (Read the rest by clicking title.)

As we start a new year, in addition to setting intentions/resolutions for yourself, you may want to contemplate your relationship first to self, and then to others and to Mother Earth/nature. Don’t judge yourself harshly, but honestly assess where you are with patience and gentleness. Awareness is the first step to any improvement in your life. Take some time to pause and reflect on these questions.

..."There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination.

I am often amazed how the synchronicities in the Universe play out. Today was one of those days when I realized that two of my favorite spiritual teachers, Oracle Girl (Jacqueline Hobbs) and Darshana Patel both did talks on how Identities keep you locked in the same night that Robert and I presented a similar subject to Raising the Vibe (see home page for video)...

Why did you start this organization? How has it grown or changed over time? 

RTV started as a non-denominational spiritual book club in February 2018 with about 8 members. Led by Rebecca Becker, the group soon grew to over 20 members and began a closed group Facebook page named Raising the Vibe. Through a network of friends, RTV invited the Atlanta-based author of one of the club’s books to speak at the meeting in January 2019. Thus the “RTV Speaker Series” was born. Soon thereafter, the monthly book club meetings morphed into the “RTV Small Groups,” which are more intimate gatherings with lively discussions. By the spring of 2019, the group leaders felt inspired to go a step further and create a non-profit organization with the goal of developing mindful leaders in our community. RTV’s 501c3 status was finalized in April 2019. On May 6, 2019, was launched. ....
