Hello High-Healed Priestess (modern-day shamanic high priestess, maybe in heels, maybe barefoot!). I know that you’re ready to tap into that unlimited wealth consciousness, the goddess of abundance. I know it is time for the Divine Feminine to rise within every aspect of you – your relationships, your business, your life and bliss. And I am sure that you want your goddess of abundance energies to come (and to cum!) easily like a 6 or 7-figure orgasm, right?
The key to attracting 6 & 7-figure BLI$$ (or anything you want)
The key to breaking free to 6-figures or to attracting your Twin Flame ISN’T by using a template, following have-tos, having the perfect hair, or even the perfect product…The Law of Attraction provides some help with manifesting too, but without this key thing, you won’t be able to attract what you want.
Sure, it’s cool if you have an awesome thing going on – a great product, body, brain, whatever thing that the world needs/wants. Yes, you DO have to have something that is genuine, of quality, and that benefits the world by being in service. But that’s NOT enough to take you to reach 6 & 7-figure BLI$$ as a High-Healed Priestess…
Nope. It’s something sacred and ancient that is being held in the memory of Gaia. It’s within you. PU$$Y Power, the Divine Feminine sacred essence that resides within the seat of the soul AND body of every woman in her root and sacral chakras, that connects her deeply and ecstatically with Gaia (Mother Earth)and every other Divine Feminine body on this earth. It enables her to connect with other customers/clients who are healing and activating their PU$$Y Power after thousands of years of having it cut off due to a patriarchal paradigm that was part of the collective consciousness’ soul contract. But it’s over now, and the Divine Feminine is rising. It’s time to awaken this sacred ancient diamond that is alive and active in your womb/yoni and rock the PU$$Y Power out of the ball park!
The Isis codes in the PU$$Y Power
There are 2 dollar signs in PU$$Y Power. And this spells Isis. ISIS=Isis=$$. Isis is the Divine Feminine symbol of Ancient Egypt, Sacred Sexuality, and the Divine Mother Goddess is encoded within the double dollar sign $$ = ISIS, as are the two pillars of light representing the two spines of the two Twin Flame Lovers, and the ‘S’ is the kundalini that runs up the spine by activating the PU$$Y Power in the female by her beloved. To learn more about Kundalini from my blog What Is Kundalini Awakening? click HERE.
PU$$Y Power is an untapped market and there is a HUGE need in the marketplace.
Your clients are hungry for the activation that you can give them, and you must activate it within yourself. Connecting to Gaia and activating your PU$$Y Power was how I broke free to 6-figure BLI$$ after being in 4-figure agony for all my 20s!
Right now, the Divine Feminine in every woman needs to be healed, and in every man too. When you heal your PU$$Y Power, you become a mentor for other PU$$ies (women, chalice holders) out there. Your clients will be intuitively and magnetically attracted to you because you will have the codex stored within your womb/yoni and woman that can clear and heal her. It’s all very juicy and exciting!

I’ll share a secret of my soul with you. My number one goal this lifetime is to resurrect the Atlantean water healing temples in order to rise the Divine Feminine and restore the Twin Flame Love frequencies back on planet earth. I know it’s a bit lofty, but I also know that we can do it…
As a High-Healed Priestess (a modern-day high priestess healer who loves high heels), I have often astral traveled to the Stargates and have visited the water healing temples there. I have also been given guided tours of Atlantis by my angels, and remember being an Atlantean High Priestess. Sounds crazy – I know – but feel into the frequencies of my heart and remember the Atlantean healing temples are within you too, and within your divine mind.
Water spirit in Ancient Hebrew ‘mem ohr‘ or memory
Remember. Memory – the word comes from the two words in Ancient Hebrew ‘mem ohr‘ which mean ‘water spirit.’ Memories are simply spirit-consciousness stored in certain ‘bodies,’ such as a computer, a brain, our cells, and even within bodies of water on planet earth. In fact, everything is a memory storage device. Matter itself is a storage vehicle of consciousness. When we reincarnate into bodies, our souls become solidified into a single object for one lifetime, or so is the experience. The precious piece here is that consciousness can be transformed, and so can matter. We can turn anything into a golden vibration, by aligning it with God/dess, the golden vibration of Divinity. Thus is alchemy, the symbolic transformation of a base metal into gold.
The Atlantean healing temples are about alchemy – of healing the body, mind, and spirit through aligning it wish certain sacred or ‘golden’ frequencies. Using crystals, water, botanicals and essential oils, sound, light, and vibrations, the Atlanteans attuned people with specific divinely aligned frequencies.
The question is, which frequencies do we as individuals and communities choose to vibrate at? And who controls or chooses the frequencies within each community and on earth? Each of us has free will, yet as a collective we have to decide which direction we want to go in and grow in. We are all one, all part of Oneness, yet there are different styles, bodies, subcultures, and tribes. That’s why we humans require a variety of different healing temples scattered all across the globe, with the intention of collectively harmonizing in Oneness. I suggest harmonizing at least one pool within each of the bathing temples at the 432 hz frequency, which I will explain a bit more about.
What is the 432 hz frequency all about?
The 432 hz frequency is a specific vibratory frequency that harmonizes all life on earth through the Star of David sacred geometry structure that is present through water and within all life. The Star of David is present within all water molecules, quartz crystals and many silica-based crystals, and in silicon chips. Essentially, water crystals, crystals, and silicon chips are storage devices that hold memory. Again, memory comes from the word mem ohr in Ancient Hebrew, which means ‘water spirit.’ The 432 hz frequency restores the sacred eternal ‘memory’ of the soul. The Star of David is the storage structure for your body and for your spirit. 70 percent of your body is water, which is comprised of many little aligned Stars of Davids dancing together as amorphous liquid lattice of many moving water crystals.
The 432 hz frequency balances out the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine, energies, the upper and lower pyramids representing the Divine Feminine and Masculine respectively, the chalice and blade. If you feel that you suffer from an over dominant male or female side, you may want to bath in water activated with the 432 to heal yourself.
The Star of David is also the structure for astral travel, and you can learn more about this if you study the merkaba or merkabah. The 432 hz repairs the merkabic structure of your soul and returns you to a Twin Flame vibration, it returns you to a Higher Self truth essence. It clears of energies of entities, ‘demons,’ or darkness. The 432 hz frequency is the harmony of Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine Love.
I believe that the only question to ask is, “Are we vibrating at Divine Love?” And once we tune into Divine Love, the proper frequencies are put in place, and the next steps become cleared. The Law of Attraction shows up and works in our favor. The Secret taught us to wish for something specific – a red bicycle for instance. But the real secret is to simply attune to Divine Love and abundance, and allow the matter to become formed and manifested alchemically into one’s life.
What’s the matter with matter?
There is no time or space. Matter is simply a construction coming from a program or codex of consciousness. It’s simply solidified sound-vibration. The Atlantean healing temples are a memory of consciousness that we store within our collective and individual subconscious. It is not really a place or time, but a timeless spaceless consciousness that can become translated into a temple. Here on earth, we are living in the 3rd Dimension and have chosen to live in a ‘reality’ experienced through matter.
We as humans take on meat-suits and become matter itself in this experience. This matter – our bodies – can get sick, decay, and eventually die. Yet they can also be enlivened, healthy, ecstatic, and temples of bliss. This is the polarity we live in on earth. There is both heaven and hell potential here, and it is up to us to choose. And this is the game we play here on earth, the university of life!
Atlantean temple as a symbol of healing
A temple is like a temple of your mind. A crown. A 7th chakra or Higher Self connection. An Atlantean temple is a space of community where humans live in spiritual harmony with Divinity and with each other. The healing temples of Atlantis symbolize our conscious choice to heal among one another and to share a collective healing experience through divinity. I’ll share my guided tour dream or astral travel experience of visiting the Atlantean healing temples.
I was flying above Atlantis in my astral body.
Suddenly, I became lucid and conscious of the angels surrounding me. It was really exciting to realize that I was free of my human form. My astral body was light and I was being guided by a higher state of consciousness, though I knew my human mind was awake with me. It was thrilling! I had a sense that something special was going to be revealed to me…
It wasn’t my first time visiting Atlantis, but it was my first time being aware of being in Atlantis and having some very special angelic guides sharing their secrets with me. At the time, in ‘real life,’ I was working as a licensed esthetician within the spa industry, because it has always been my dream of opening a spa of some sort. I have always loved spas because they feel like little magical wonderlands of escape, and the bliss, the warm water, the sounds, the light, the softness – it feels like home to me! Some of the most healing and memorable experiences I’ve had in my life have taken place in spas. So, when I was being shown my majestical angels how they did spas in Atlantis, I was definitely paying attention!
We flew above these gorgeous crystalline pools that were constructed within a hillside. The pools were massive and cut out of marble. I remember that there were about 6 pools laid out over 3 different layers. Two different pools on each side of a very long set of stairs that were a bit like the Spanish Steps in Rome, going down the hillside. The pools had 6 separate healing frequencies and were overseen by various healers and high priestesses and priests. I remember asking my angelic guides how they afforded such a luxury, and even wanted to know how much it would cost me! They replied that everything there was free, that they had a different consciousness than we have on earth now. The Atlanteans appreciate the value of Oneness and know that we are all one. That no one should suffer at the expense of another, and that there is an unlimited abundance for us to share.
I agree with these values: oneness and abundance, and feel they will be at the base of the structure of the newly rebuilt Atlantean Healing temples. Community pools will be potent places for healing, transmutation, and also for creating a harmonized vibration of community.
Also, I believe that in each of these 6 Atlantean pools, each pool had a different sound and healing frequency intended into it. Meaning that the Atlantean High Priests and Priestesses had infused the water with different vibrations, some similar to the 432 hz frequency that I infuse into my water before drinking or taking a bath. 432 hz is the frequency that balances the Star of David-like structure within water, harmonizing the shape of the two equilateral triangles (the Divine Femine and Divine Masculine symbols).
I have used water healing in many of my rituals and prayers that have come true. One favorite true story is the time I matchmade my dear friend Rhea by doing a shamanic Twin Flame ritual by a fountain and some fire. Within one hour of this prayer, we met her Twin Flame, David, who was visiting from Sweden, and they’ve been together since, married, and live between Sweden and California. I don’t doubt the power of healing through water. I know that I have been a water temple priestess in Egypt, Greece, Italy, Native America, Atlantis, Lemuria, and the Pleiades. It is part of my nature, to infuse love into water, and to use water to spread love. Amanda, my name, means ‘Beloved.’
Atlantean healing temple resurrection in Bali
In Bali 2009, I was biking around the small majestic town of Ubud, seeking a magical place to host a goddess retreat that would be abundant and beautiful enough for a small group of healers, entrepreneurs, and spiritual women.
I spent hours combing the streets of Ubud only to find many over-priced or poorly feng shued places that didn’t have my heart. I gave up, suddenly parked my bike, and in the heat, founded my legs walking me down a small shaded dirt road off the beaten path. Though I had no clue where I was going, I felt guided to keep going even though I wasn’t sure if I was walking into a dead-end, or perhaps even onto a private road.
“WTF, this is a healing vortex!”
I saw a small sign that said Spring Water. Thirsty and hot, I felt enticed and followed my intuition. I followed the sign down a smaller road and noticed a different energy surrounding me. “WTF, this is a healing vortex!” I thought to myself as I walked through what seemed like an energy tunnel that was taking me back in time. As I walked downhill alongside a river, and something inside of me shifted as if I were traveling back in time. Or into a new grid of existence. My frustration melted and I lost track of time and space.
I think what happened is that I walked into a grid with Atlantean consciousness. When I reached the top of the little hill, another sign that said ‘Spring Water’ appeared next to a big gate. Not sure if it was a private property or not, I took a deep breath, followed my gut, and entered.
“Hello? Can I help you madam?”
I was greeted by a young man by the name of Ketut (like one out of every four people in Bali with the name Ketut which means literally ‘four’). He seemed warm and gentle. Ketut explained that it was the low-season at their wellness retreat, and that I could have a look around. Chills swept through my body… This must be the place I have been looking for!
Ketut showed me around the entire near-empty retreat grounds. It was beautiful, green, and luscious. There were papayas, big and juicy, as well as durian fruit, bananas, and coconuts hanging from the trees. It felt like a Balinese version of the Garden of Eden! Colorful flowers were lovingly planted around the property, as well as many statues of various gods and goddesses and Buddha heads.
Then, my jaw dropped when I was taken to the most beautiful infinity swimming pool. It sat over the edge of a background that was a thousand shades of green. The rice paddies in Bali are just stunning, and this one was more beautiful and secluded than the ones I’d seen. I took in the view for a few moments. Ketut then offered for me to take a few hours to try out the pool for free. At that time, this was a precious gift, for I didn’t have the money to pay for such a high-end hotel retreat, and didn’t want to pay for a swimming pool indulgence (mind you I was still making only 4-figures and was stuck in poverty until 2010 when I had a money breakthrough).
Now was my chance to experience my first Atlantean healing experience.
Ketut then lead me down a long pathway of stairs to the hidden bathing springs, a little bathing pool next to a river. There were three statues spouting out water into the fountain bathing-pool. He explained that the dragon represented the spirit, the pig represented the body, and the lion the mind. He encouraged me to fill up my water bottle and take a drink. The spring was over a few hundred years old and the water was pure and healing. He then left me a small blue towel and a little bar of soap, as this literally was a bathing pool that could be drained out like a bathtub. Ketut walked back up to the reception area and left me to myself.
I soaked in the surroundings and felt myself in the presence of magic.
For some reason, I had the feeling that I wasn’t mean to be wearing the bikini that I’d brought with me. In Bali I always need a bathing suit because there is water water everywhere – ocean, pools, fountains, and little springs because it’s a volcanic island. So I tossed my suit aside, stripped down, prayed that no one would come down and find me, and I slipped my feet into the cool water. The warm tropical air contrasted the chilly water that was just cold enough to make me hesitate about dunking under. But I felt guided to do a full-body baptism, so I made a prayer, laid back, and went under. I opened my eyes to the sky and saw the sun shining above me through the crystalline water.
Out of no where, a gust of emotion swept though me, and ancient waves of sadness burst through me. It was like I was returning home. Like I was going back to my Atlantean roots, and for the first time in a long time I remembered how much I missed it. You can only know ‘separation’ if you know what ‘home’ or ‘self’ means first.
Atlantis represents home, birthing, the womb, the Divine Mother, the Sacred Feminine, tribal harmony, crystalline consciousness, and idealism realized. In many timelines, Atlantis has been a place that has gone out of whack, has been destroyed or manipulated or has carried a dark vibration. Yet that is just an experience. The true Atlantis is a place in our Divine Minds where our spirits and God/dess are one, and where crystal cities, temples, communities rise from an honoring of Oneness.
I dried myself off, put on my bikini, and walked up to the main pool. The view was simply stunning. I put my things down and jumped in. Euphoria swept through my body. I felt the deepest sense of Divine Love, of God’s love enveloping. I think it was the first time in my life I felt this way without being in love with another human being.
I twirled around like a dolphin in the water for an hour or so, spinning and somersaulting in celebration with the Divine Feminine. Visions of taking women to this special place and doing mermaid pool dips delighted me. I imagined a group of Atlantean High Priestesses enjoying the pure waters with me, giggling, sharing, praying, and honoring each other. A sunshine beam of joy exuded from my heart. Then I felt that I was not alone, that there were devic beings – loving spirits who were watching over the land. They were watching me and wanted my attention. Feeling only love and joy, I spoke to them telepathically:
“Who are you?” The sun was setting, and the colors were starting to highlight the sky with pink, lavender, and cobalt, with the silhouettes of black palm trees. I heard them respond,
“We are the caretakers of this land. This is sacred land, an ancient territory that holds an ancient magic. It is pure and protected. There is magic waiting for you here, Amanda, and we have brought you here, guided you to come here with your tribe. We have been waiting for you for a long time, to transmit this magic.”
Then they told me something about how those who had been coming to the land weren’t ready for the
information, and that they were grateful that I was a bright and open spirit. I loved that they had honored me with their communications and had faith that I could bring other high priestesses here.
Yet for the past five years, I felt like I had failed them, these gorgeous devic beings. For it has taken me afull 5 years to be ready. I’m finally brining a group of 7 high priestesses to Bali for a retreat on Valentine’s Day 2014. Before now, I have tried every single year to gather a group of women to come to Bali. But for some reason or another, it simply wasn’t ready, or I wasn’t ready. I did go back to the springs once again in 2009, and I brought a couple with me, a Balinese man and Australian woman. We did a water prayer together.
I went back to Bali for their Twin Flame wedding on 11/11/11. I visited the springs and again felt the water’s healing activation. Yet again, the energies didn’t seem ready, or I didn’t feel ready to bring my goddess pilgrims back to Bali. On October 25, 2011, I had a premonition of a tsunami, earthquake, or flood happening and wondered if I should have come to Bali at all before December 21, 2012. Sure enough, on October 26, there was a 6.0 earthquake in Bali that shook me to the core. Ironically, it transmuted my fear into waves of kundalini bliss and I realized that I had nothing to fear.
I trust the slow birth process of rebirthing and rebuilding the goddess temples here on earth. If it were up to me entirely, I would have resurrected Atlantis always and forever here on earth, and let angels’ light guide the government our planet entirely. But that’s just me, I guess it might not be as exciting and interesting as it is with all this darkness to clear up and integrate into the plot. I’m the kind of being who like movies to be happily ever after from beginning to end, but other people say that would be boring. I just think it would be fine! But so here we are, in duality. I am just so excited to be bringing through a new era of Divine Feminine bliss where we can celebrate each other through Oneness, through our own quirky individuality, and through breaking free from limitations. That’s why I came here. Why did you come and stick around?
Fast forward to 2099…
The Atlantean Water Healing Temples and Goddess Temples were resurrected, and they all lived happily every after forever and ever.
That’s the reality I hope to create before my last breath in this lifetime. What’s the reality you’re excited to create?
Oh, and you’re invited to learn more about the Bali retreat here.

Getting your high-paying soulmate clients to sign up for your high-end coaching programs is just like getting your Twin Flame to sign up for the relationship with you. It comes from divine love and using the Law of Attraction, and it starts by being able to attract and recognize your soul family members. Twin Flame energy is reflected in every aspect of your life, not just through your Beloved. The quicker you harness it, the more Twin Flame Activation you’ll receive in all aspects of your life. Here’s a Twin Flame Hypnosis Meditation to help you attract your Twin Flame and ‘soulmate clients’ so that you can start brining your soul-family members into your energy field:
I just enrolled another beautiful soulmate client today for my new VIP 9-month program, and my heart is pouring with joy! I think I’m in love <3. I love how attracting and enrolling clients is becoming an easy, pleasurable process. And even asking for the $$ wasn’t bad! In the past, it wasn’t so… I used to get knots in my tummy when I had to give free consultations and make sales calls. Yick! I just wanted it to be easy and not have to worry about money. I thought business meant busy-ness-in-pain! My inner perfectionist led me. I was always totally freaked about whether or not they’d like me, and I was desperate to receive the money because I had never had much. When I was making the sale, I felt like an awkward dork waiting for someone to ask me to prom, trying to hint at things or even asking and getting rejected. Thank God it’s not like that anymore, as I have figured out something I call ‘Seductive Selling!’
I have mastered getting my clients ‘turned on’ and begging for more. It’s magnetic instead of involving me chasing down clients energetically. Instead of me leaning towards them and bending over backwards, they are honoring my High Priestessesness. They love investing with me because it’s the best way to pamper themselves and honor the Goddess Within :). Seductive Selling is about getting your clients to know, see, feel, and vibe in your value. You get them juicy and excited about the potential for change that you can bring into their lives. It comes from a place of you being just a few steps ahead of them, of bringing this into your own life first, and by helping them traverse the gap. I also love teaching my own clients how to attract their ‘Soulmate Clients’ by getting clear on their soul-purposes, creating an ‘Aphrodisiac Marketing‘ strategy, tuning into their ‘Erotic Brand Equity’ and turning it into Holy MatriMoney! How? Through ‘Secuctive Selling,’ you get your future client excited by the power of your work and your soul-family connection. It’s almost the same as Twin Flame or soulmate love, or is in a sense a certain form of it.
Free client consultations are like speed dating.
During the free consultation, also known as a free strategy session or discovery session, your clients will be in a vibration of Divine Yes, and selling becomes like an easy seduction of someone who is meant to fall in love with you. These sessions are like 30-minutes or so speed dates to see if it’s a soulmate match. The more highly refined your marketing is with your soul-purpose message, the better potential clients you’ll attract to your strategy sessions. It’s all great practice for the Twin Flame, and it’s such a pleasurable way of doing BLI$$ness 🙂
The bottom line:
To harness Twin Flame Love, we have to tune into our soul purposes and learn how to attract our soul family. This takes finding our inner soul light. We must know on a soular and cellular level what our desires are, what our soul-purpose is, and become ecstatic about our lives. You must bubble up with emotion of how you’re going to change people’s lives and impact the world before it happens.
Your desire to spread your own ecstasy will blast your Law of Attraction skills through the roof. This goes for the TF and for your 6-figure BLI$$ness…Lots of love and Light,
Dr. Amanda Noelle, the Twin Flame Matchmaker, helps align women with their Twin Flame, their soul purpose, and their 6-figure BLI$$ so that they can heal the world and be in service to the Goddess.
nce upon a time there was a magical little girl who was tricked by an evil toad into believing that she wasn’t Divinely perfect. He told her that there was something innately wrong with her, and that no one could ever truly love her, least of all her One True Love. Even though the evil toad’s words hurt the little girl to the core, she swallowed her tears and persevered through life, knowing that someday she would heal and find her True Love. The girl grew up to be a beautiful-hearted woman, a gifted healer, and a lover of all things Divine. Though she faced many trials and travails, the dream of attracting her one true Twin Flame motivated her through her healing evolution. She kept her Light shining bright, mended the hurt Inner Child, and realized that it was all a lie — Silly toad! In fact, one day she realized that she was actually a true High Priestess and that she was ready for her Priest.
The Twin Flame Love frequencies are here, and woman, that girl is YOU!!!
All of us grew up believing in fairytales.
Whether it was Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, or Anastasia, these tales helped us live in fantasy to escape from our own pain and abandonment as children. Yet they have stuck with us in our adulthood, and these tales are only distorted reflections of our hopes and dreams. In order to realize the true fairytale, we must deprogram the distortion and clarify our realest version of Happily Ever After. In this blog, I help you do just that if you so wish!
Deprogramming Cinderella Syndrome
Someday My Prince Will Come…Sure, that’s true, but not if you sit back on your laurels in your silly watchtower being trapped by your evil stepmother or queen (the false feminine, as opposed to the Divine Feminine upholding Divine Truth). Someday was a great idea, until someday came along and brought us lots of pain and heartache when we tried to squeeze a Happily Ever After out of the wrong mate, potential partner, or crush obsession. Ouch. Heartbroken and disappointed a few times over, yet that’s what it takes to learn the lesson. That no matter how hard we try, no man, person, place, or thing can heal us until we are willing to do the “dirty work” within ourselves. It is Lightwork actually, even when it seemed dirty and painful at the time, the results are so bright little Cinderella birdies will wanna flutter all around.
Through fairytales, we learned the main distorted message: a damsel in distress can be saved from all evil, entrapment, and from being neglected and abandoned, simply by attracting a handsome prince! In a nutshell, fairytales, though romantic and love-inspiring, teach a distorted message and false promises that can create a lot of heartache and relationship disfunction. Or even divorce… That is not so romantic! To inspire True Love, we must re-write fairytales in a way that empowers us–girls and women–especially the Inner Child. Ultimately, our fairytales must emphasize the harmonization of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine within. The balance between independence and inter-dependence will triumph over disfunctional co-dependence forevermore.
Healing Cinderella Syndrome
Yes loves, it is time to transition out of Cinderella Syndrome, from Damsel in Distress into Twin Flame Love! These relationships will truly be Awakened ones, and hold full potential for true Happily Ever After. In truth, we Cinderellas out there have to “save” ourselves first. Being self-saved Power Priestesses makes us very eligible and attractive to the right sexy-souled partner. That way he or she doesn’t have to take care of us like a wounded daughter or little girl. Further, no one else, I repeate no one, can actually save us when we are up our damsel high towers when we are too stubborn to save ourselves first. To save ourselves, all it takes is a conscioussness. “I save myself consciousness” instantly dissolves “Save me consciousness”–you will attract an entirely different species of mate. So go do it and enjoy!
Again, to access Twin Flame Love, or any type of love, we must first realize it within ourselves. This can seem like no easy feat, especially when we have grown up in a world where our Inner Child was scarred, scared, and felt separated from the Sacred. However, that was then and this is now; the healed and whole Inner Child can now align with the Inner High Priestess to attract her Divine Partner. This is the new paradigm of 2012.
Awakening Divine Love within ourselves requires us to first observe and undo the love-limits that have scarred us and blocked us from receiving external love just like the deep moat of water and thorny brambles surrounding a castle preventing Mr. Right from traipsing in. I’ve included an easy meditation below called “Healing Your Inner Child Fairytale Meditation” that is designed to quickly clear out subconscious blocks that limit love.
The Truth about Happily Ever After
True Happily Ever After does not mean being lazy, easy, or loving without compromise. Relationships takework, just like a magical garden takes energy for it to grow. Like a relationship, you must water and plant and weed. You must decide which new fruits and plants you want to harvest; there are a lot of decisions and actions to take. You must remain commited, excited, and focused on the joy of the prizes that arrive daily. You must be able to cut your losses of the tomatoes that rot on the vine. Further, in the Garden of Love, you may prick yourself on the rose bush on occassion; even when her blossoms are so lovely it still hurts! We are all human, and we must learn from eartlhy lessons.
Healing Your Inner Child Fairytale Meditation:
Sit in a safe space and get into a grounded meditation mode. Relax, sit back, and enjoy the ride. Candles, incense, chakras spinned, and three ohms if you so please!
Imagine yourself as the most spiffy and fantastical fairy-magic castle in your own fairytale. The castle is YOU, and it also represents the home, hearth, womb, shelter, mother, Feminine, Divine Mother, etc. See a giant moat around it, and a scratchy overgrowth of thorny brambles that block out the love of your Divine Partner.
Then, see a thick, heavy drawbridge that attaches to a mighty golden Divine Door to your own Divine Heart of this castle of you. Ahhh… Now acknowledge that the brambles have served you for these many years to protect you from perceived dangers. But also know that you no longer need them, for they were keeping both good and evil out, and blocking you from fully receiving as a High Priestess. Ask your guides to come into the scene now and allow the drawbridge to come down, allowing the door to your Divine Heart to gently open. Then feel the guides’ wisdom and protection watching over you and the door so that your castle is safe, protected, yet welcome to the right Beloved and loved ones who need to pass over the moat. Know now that there is no reason to attract thieves or Twin Flame counterfeits who attempt to steal hearts for you are protected, you are loved, you are love, and you are the Sacred Goddess Temple of De-Light.
There will always be joy, there will always be pain, surrender, and loss in creation, growth, and magic sometimes, in the Divine Garden on Earth, and through the Twin Flame Unions here. But on the whole, Happily Ever After can be had, as long as we align with
God/Goddess and Divine Love that begins within. I bless you and praise you for being the brave little girl who is awakening fully to her Divine Feminine light as we speak!

Mild, medium, or HOT? Sometimes salsa just isn’t salsa without the spice–just like your soulmate isn’t attractive without the hot physical package! We are human and have a taste for beautiful things. We have evolved from looks oriented creatures: birds, then goats, then gorillas. These animals appreciate beauty and so do we.
Like ducks who choose the pretty mallard feathers, or the she-goats who select the winning mountain goat for his large horns, or the lucky gorilla gal who gets the coveted silverback, we humans can go gaga for good looking guys or gals. In this post, I will talk about how to bag a babe that you actually find attractive–on both physical and spiritual levels! Have I attracted your attention yet?
Attractiveness doesn’t have to be generic
Despite the fact that the soul doesn’t care about physical form, our humanness does. It needs physical beauty and attraction (however you define that) for a healthy soulmate/Twin Flame relationship. Without the spice and attraction, you got yourself a best friend and nothing more. Nothing wrong with a best friend, but don’t kid yourself.
You are probably saying, “Amanda, isn’t it superficial to say that attractive people are better than less attractive people on a soul level?” And I’m saying No, it’s not. Because attractiveness is spiritual. And its not the Hollywood kinda pretty or hot I am talking about, as attractiveness does not have to be generic. True beauty is all in the eye of the beholder. In fact, true attractiveness is simply a spiritual vibration based on high levels of sacred geometry.
The beholder interprets the geometry however he or she “likes” beauty. True spiritual beauty emanates from our physical form and it resonates with the beloved onlooker–on an eyes, ears, nose, and especially an energetic level. This is the alchemy of seeing your Twin Flame’s true beauty–beauty can only be seen by those who understand the secrets of sacred beauty.
Alchemical attractiveness lesson one: Beauty is unique.
Everyone’s attractiveness taste buds are unique, just as everyone looks unique. So there’s someone for you – there’s someone for everyone! A perfect mach on all the levels, beauty included. Throw it out NOW, the old paradigm of everyone wants Brad Pitt. That’s so boring! Stop trying to look act and be the same as the same old boring plastic model. Be you beautiful one. And stop lusting after generic plastic beauty that lacks substance.
Remember those those generically hot guys or bombshell gals that everyone wanted to date or be in high school (and sometimes they manage to stay ladies men or it girls for many years)? Where are they now? Most likely they either abused or ran away from or hopefully came to terms with the superficiality of their so-called physical perfection that got them in the door (or nether-region). A lot of the Hollywood hot people are actually suffocated or suffering with their beauty because no one can see the real them.
Yes beautiful: true beauty is on a much deeper level. We are all here by Divine Design; we are created by our creator with a perfect divine plan. We are gifted with the perfect package. We are all incredibly attractive to our Twin Flame, and vice versa. We are even granted a certain number of soulmates who find us stunning and make us feel our own attractiveness. Sometimes it can be annoying when you’re not attracted back to these people (a soulmate whose lesson/gift is to uplift your beauty confidence)! When I was in Italy I got a ton of cat calls and suitors who complimented me to the point where I stopped doing my own beauty affirmations because being told that I was hot all day long by these stallioni burned the message into my subconscious. Ironically, though their compliments helped me get into “I’m hot” instead of “I’m not” thinking, I only ended up being attracted to three men during my 3-year love affair with Italy. More ironically was that none of these men hit on me until later in our dating. Still, I will always be grateful for coming of age in Italy and hope that more American and Anglo men can learn the art of flattery and compliments from their Latin counterparts.
Ultimately, it’s about having both mutual physical attraction and mutual soul attraction for the right soulmate. Guess where it starts? It starts within…
Use the Law of Attraction!
The Law of Attraction states that “like attracts like.” Therefore, if you want to attract someone that you find attractive, you must first find yourself attractive. Hopefully you like what you see in the mirror! It’s no easy feat in this culture, where we limit the ideas of beauty. Especially for women, right!? I myself suffered from Barbie complex (and I still catch myself in moments sometimes) where I thought unless I looked like the perfect skinny toned perky Californian blondie, I couldn’t be loved or beautiful. It sucks when you live in fear of cellulite, water retention, wrinkles, pimples, and all the other stuff that comes with being woman/human! That’s not pretty. True beauty is confidence. Self-acceptance. Joy. Trust. Good posture. Open-heartedness. A smile is beautiful. In a nutshell, when you are radiant, glowing yourself, your own true Divine frequency out to the Universe, that is beautiful. Then you are a real bite of bait for the right soulmate.
Fall in love with yourself
That’s it. That’s what it takes–become a narcissist! Kidding. That’s so not the right word…Self-adoring, that’s a better fit! You don’t have to be self-absorbed in a selfish or narcissistic way to love yourself. True self-love is the kind where you are so in love with yourself that you see God/Goddess in yourself. Then, you see that God/Goddess and you are one. You feel the oneness of your soul with all souls, with divinity. You look in the mirror and see love and light that comes from your being a child of God/Goddess. And that you are not separate from God/Goddess. This becomes very exciting! Then you realize that all beings are little fractions of God, or more like microcosms of the macrocosm through which you can explore Oneness.
There are many potential soulmates out there for you to test out
Some are zany, insane, sexy, scary, goofy, interesting, boring, annoying, beautiful, and highly unattractive reflections of God/Goddess. Your job: to love everything and everyone in an unconditionally loving and compassionate way while discerning what is best for you as a human. It is not wrong to be attracted to certain types and not others. It is not wrong if you grew up around a certain type of person and feel comfortable marrying only that type of person. Never date (in the long term, one date is OK!) or marry someone you’re not attracted to. I do suggest trying to date outside of your race, class, spirituality, social group etc., so that you can understand Oneness through diversity. You will learn a lot as you seek out your Twin Flame. Moreover, it is possible that your Twin Flame is not a part of your inner circle/race etc. Many Twin Flames have reported to be living in different parts of the globe yet attract each other through divine guidance (plus online connecting or crossing during travels). They seem to often know that despite the differences of culture/race etc., there is an instant feeling Twin Flame recognition that is quite strong.
Your soul knows what you need, and your human self will be guided and follow the path perfectly to the perfect mate. It’s OK to kiss a few frogs on the journey too, but do keep in mind that you must be happy, blissful, satisfied! It all starts with gratitude for where you’re at, which is what I discussed in my article Harnessing Gratitude to Harness your Twin Flame!
Fall in love with the mirror to attract an attractive partner
Self-Love & Beauty Mirror Ritual:
Look in the mirror and repeat the following prayer/affirmation:
“I am beautiful. I love the soul that I see appearing in the mirror. The soul in the mirror loves me back. She (or he) is me. I love the home–the temple body of my soul. My body, skin, face, hair and every nuance of me is perfect. By Divine Design, I am pure and perfect love. I love myself. I am attractive. I am sexy. I am beauty. I am joy coming into human incarnation. My lashes are luscious. My skin is soft. Every corner, curve, wrinkle and nerve of me is placed perfectly so that I can attract the right person/people into my life. My body serves me for my highest purpose and I love her. My body is pretty sexy! My curves are gorgeous. My imperfections are totally perfect. I love the things I complain about, and I complain about them less and less. I love me, for all of me! Thank God/dess for the body I have, and the soul mates with which I share my body are damn lucky!”
In my YouTube video, What the Heck Is a Twin Flame? I define a Twin Flame as the other half of your soul incarnate. It’s living breathing you in the carnage (physical human form) of another. Same soul, different meat-suit.
According to Greek mythology, we were all once attached to our Twin Flame. If we had a male or female other half attached directly to us. But our powers were too strong, we became so godlike that Zeus got jealous and
had humans sliced in half. ‘Til this day, we’re still suffering looking for our Divine Match, according to this metaphorical (I think!?) legend. In another blog article, What Is a Twin Flame? Twin Flame Q & A by A Twin Flame Expert, I talked about the difference between a Twin Flame Love and a soulmate love.
A soulmate in essence is a soul who comes in to teach you a lesson (and vice versa) and it can be romantic or not. If a Twin Flame being the other half of your soul can be a very exciting concept for those of us new to waking up, or those of us who have been awake but not yet totally aligned in relationship. Twin Flame seeking then becomes a very beautiful path of self-discovery then.
Not many people have known about our ability to attract a Twin Flame up until recently.
Many spiritual schools taught that a Twin Flame is something not worth seeking or of importance; some schools teach that it’s outright impossible for most. But it’s 2016, and the matrix energetics are realigning. New perspectives are allowing us to seek the answers within, and often times the answers say “I don’t choose to believe that,” and it is so. We are what we think. Beliefs shift reality. Once indoctrinated to believe we simply couldn’t have what we wanted, now we can indoctrinate ourselves with whatever we choose.
In 2012, we became our own doctors. Our own teachers, masters, gurus, shrinks, and lovers. That doesn’t mean that we can’t get external guidance and motivation along the way and that all external mentors are ineffective. Contrarily, teachers are simply mirrors of ourselves showing us what we believe or deep down know inside of us. When we have false teachings show up, it’s ourselves giving ourselves a test with a trick question on it. Do you (a) Write it off that you can’t have your Twin Flame because someone told you or it hasn’t happened, (b) Believe in Twin Flames but choose that it’s not likely for you, (c) Stay openminded and open-hearted to the idea as you deeply seek deep self-soul love, or (d) Decide that you definitely have to have a Twin Flame or else (you’ll die perhaps!?)? The best answer I suggest is (c). Why not give love a try, with the parachute on your back being the deepest sense of self-love and self care?
How do I know if my partner is my Twin Flame? First, ask yourself, do you even really want a Twin Flame? Here is what is required of being in a Twin Flame relationship:
- Deep soul evolution, being on an Ascension path
- Self-awareness at all times, on all levels
- Being conscious from a Higher Self perspective
- Being grounded in the earth plane and facing your insecurities
- Going through a Dark Night of the Soul, if needed, to get to the Higher Self aspect
- Healing your root chakra and learning to make friends with money, survival, and wealth consciousness
- Being willing to surrender everything you currently “know” as love
- Being willing to leave a bad marriage or even a pretty decent one that is not your Twin Flame relationship
- To learn and know the difference between karmic soulmate love and Twin Flame Love vibrations
- Letting go of the way things look
- Being willing to fall in love with someone who might not fit into the box of traditional relationships
- Being open to your Twin Flame being on another side of the globe or of a different culture
- Tons of clearing, healing cleaning, de-cluttering of your aura, home, finances, and all aspects of your life so they align with the truth
- Finally, and most importantly: deep unconditional self-soul love and gratitude
Darn! That’s a long list, I know you’re saying. It is. Yet think about all the soul growth you’ve already done in your life and even over the past few years. That’s a long list too.
Even if you have just a few things on the list above, you’re already getting Twin Flame set if you so desire. Now back to the question, how do you know if you’re in a Twin Flame relationship? Simply study yourself and how you are showing up in your current relationship.
Twin Flame Examination Starts at the Self.
First focus on YOU, and not the relationship (an external Twin Flame Mirror of you)…
Staring at you allows you to empower yourself and go to the source of the Twin Flame relationship, since you’re the only one you’ll be with 24-hours a day for the rest of your life! And you are the one who decides if someone is your Twin Flame. I have been told by several men that they were likely my Twin Flame and with pressure and persuasion behind it for not so Light reasons…it seems “Hey baby, I think you’re my Twin Flame” could be the latest New Age pickup line!
When we don’t start at ourselves, we often end up in situations of abandonment and needing to heal a broken heart by a false Twin Flame
Here are the questions to ask yourself as you evaluate your current relationship to see if you are with your Divine Beloved:
- Do I deeply know myself?
- Do I love what I see when I look in the mirror?
- Do I spend lots of time doing things I love?
- Do I have a rock solid relationship with rocks, nature, trees, water, earth, fire and even fairies?
- Do I give myself full credit for being as powerful as I am?
- Do I criticize or hate myself in any way and let myself get away with it?
- Can I financially support myself and do so blissfully or do I have a job I hate that gives me migraines?
- Do I have a relationship to my sensuality and understand my sacred sexuality?
- Have I let go of all of my past relationships fully?
- Does my heart feel so open wide that I love all things?
- Do I have a huge dose of unconditional self-love?
- Do I have a huge doses of unconditional love for every being on the planet?
True Twin Flame Litmus Testing to Be Released Next Fall!
Joking:) So you wanna take a litmus test to know if your guy/gal is the Twin Flame for you?! Pee into this panel and I’ll send it off to the lab and tell ya:) Kidding! While they haven’t come out with a Twin Flame fool proof test, you can try this one to get some good ideas:
- Have I “come out of the closet” as a healer, indigo, crystal child, rainbow, etc, or do I hide myself and my talents to “play it safe” in front of my partner?
- T or F? In a way, I know I could leave this person, because we are so entirely at one that on some level it doesn’t matter if we’re together or apart. I have faced my fears of disappointing him or her and my own fears of abandonment.
- Am I staying with this person for the sake of the children, appearances, or out of insecurity?
- Do I find this person attractive on most all levels?
- Has your partner ever abused you verbally, physically, or psychically?
- Is your relationship of service to the planet in a way that serves people outside of the relationship/family? (This can count even if it’s through deep love energetically releasing to the world).
- Is there one single thing that doesn’t fit that keeps eating away at you or the relationship that you can’t let go for over more than a year? Sorry, I hate to break it to you, but this sounds like a deal-breaker…
- Have you not unlocked some really old childhood fears and behaviors and family programs that are inhibiting your current relationship to a great degree? (this is not a total sign s/he isn’t the one, but it’s a good sign that as you heal, your energy will greatly shift making you more TF eligible).
- Does your partner fully love you and support you and accept you?
- Does your partner reject your ideas frequently, or not understand who you are on the deepest level?
- Do you and your partner not know a lot about each others Higher Self energies?
- Would you give your life for this person? If so, that’s not a good sign! You have to always put yourself first:) That was a trick question BTW!
Truly the best way to know if someone is your Twin Flame is to know yourself. Don’t forget that you are your greatest resource at all moments, and you are the Godchild/Goddesschild of the One. Feel free to check out my video How Do I Know if Someone is My Twin Flame?

Origin of the Twin Flame Love Theory
In my recent article post, How Do I know if my Partner is my Twin Flame?, I talk about the many signs that your partner is your Twin Flame or symptoms that they’re not. I also mention that the concept of Twin Flames is not a new one, and that in his Symposium, Plato speaks of the ancient concept that Twin Flames are literally the other half of the human soul that has incarnated into a form of another, and the reason why we all have the desire to meet our soulmate (most of us do anyway). Here’s an interesting and at least entertaining read about soulmate love from our favorite Greek philosopher. Click here for my video: What is a Twin Flame? to get a better understanding of the Twin Flame theory:
Aristophanes’s Speech from Plato’s Symposium
Translated by Benjamin Jowett from Collected Works of Plato, 4th Edition, Oxford U. Press, 1953 (189c-189d) p 520 to (193d-193e) p 525
Aristophanes professed to open another vein of discourse; he had a mind to praise Love in another way, unlike that of either Pausanias or Eryximachus. Mankind, he said, judging by their neglect of him, have never, as I think, at all understood the power of Love. For if they had understood him they would surely have built noble temples and altars, and offered solemn sacrifices in his honour; but this is not done, and most certainly ought to be done: since of all the gods he is the best friend of men, the helper and the healer of the ills which are the great impediment to the happiness of the race. I will try to describe his power to you, and you shall teach the rest of the world what I am teaching you.
In the first place, let me treat of the nature of man and what has happened to it. The original human nature was not like the present, but different. The sexes were not two as they are now, but originally three in number; there was man, woman, and the union of the two, of which the name survives but nothing else. Once it was a distinct kind, with a bodily shape and a name of its own, constituted by the union of the male and the female: but now only the word ‘androgynous’ is preserved, and that as a term of reproach.
In the second place, the primeval man was round, his back and sides forming a circle; and he had four hands and the same number of feet, one head with two faces, looking opposite ways, set on a round neck and precisely alike; also four ears, two privy members, and the remainder to correspond. He could walk upright as men now do, backwards or forwards as he pleased, and he could also roll over and over at a great pace, turning on his four hands and four feet, eight in all, like tumblers going over and over with their legs in the air; this was when he wanted to run fast.
Now the sexes were three, and such as I have described them; because the sun, moon, and earth are three; and the man was originally the child of the sun, the woman of the earth, and the man-woman of the moon, which is made up of sun and earth, and they were all round and moved round and round because they resembled their parents. Terrible was their might and strength, and the thoughts of their hearts were great, and they made an attack upon the gods; of them is told the tale of Otys and Ephialtes who, as Homer says, attempted to scale heaven, and would have laid hands upon the gods.
Doubt reigned in the celestial councils. Should they kill them and annihilate the race with thunderbolts, as they had done the giants, then there would be an end of the sacrifices and worship which men offered to them; but, on the other hand, the gods could not suffer their insolence to be unrestrained. At last, after a good deal of reflection, Zeus discovered a way.
He said: ‘Methinks I have a plan which will enfeeble their strength and so extinguish their turbulence; men shall continue to exist, but I will cut them in two and then they will be diminished in strength and increased in numbers; this will have the advantage of making them more profitable to us. They shall walk upright on two legs, and if they continue insolent and will not be quiet, I will split them again and they shall hop about on a single leg.’
He spoke and cut men in two, like a sorb-apple which is halved for pickling, or as you might divide an egg with a hair; and as he cut them one after another, he bade Apollo give the face and the half of the neck a turn in order that man might contemplate the section of himself: he would thus learn a lesson of humility. Apollo was also bidden to heal their wounds and compose their forms. So he gave a turn to the face and pulled the skin from the sides all over that which in our language is called the belly, like the purses which draw tight, and he made one mouth at the centre, which he fastened in a knot (the same which is called the navel); he also moulded the breast and took out most of the wrinkles, much as a shoemaker might smooth leather upon a last; he left a few, however, in the region of the belly and navel, as a memorial of the primeval state.
After the division the two parts of man, each desiring his other half, came together, and throwing their arms about one another, entwined in mutual embraces, longing to grow into one, they began to die from hunger and self-neglect, because they did not like to do anything apart; and when one of the halves died and the other survived, the survivor sought another mate, man or woman as we call them,–being the sections of entire men or women,–and clung to that.
Thus they were being destroyed, when Zeus in pity invented a new plan: he turned the parts of generation round to the front, for this had not been always their position, and they sowed the seed no longer as hitherto like grasshoppers in the ground, but in one another; and after the transposition the male generated in the female in order that by the mutual embraces of man and woman they might breed, and the race might continue; or if man came to man they might be satisfied, and rest, and go their ways to the business of life. So ancient is the desire of one another which is implanted in us, reuniting our original nature, seeking to make one of two, and to heal the state of man.
Each of us when separated, having one side only, like a flat fish, is but the tally-half of a man, and he is always looking for his other half. Men who are a section of that double nature which was once called androgynous are lovers of women; adulterers are generally of this breed, and also adulterous women who lust after men. The women who are a section of the woman do not care for men, but have female attachments; the female companions are of this sort. But they who are a section of the male follow the male, and while they are young, being slices of the original man, they have affection for men and embrace them, and these are the best of boys and youths, because they have the most manly nature.
Some indeed assert that they are shameless, but this is not true; for they do not act thus from any want of shame, but because they are valiant and manly, and have a manly countenance, and they embrace that which is like them. And these when they grow up become our statesmen, and these only, which is a great proof of the truth of what I am saying. When they reach manhood they are lovers of youth, and are not naturally inclined to marry or beget children,–if at all, they do so only in obedience to custom; but they are satisfied if they may be allowed to live with one another unwedded;
Is Leo showing us a clue here of Plato’s Twin Flame concept?
And such a nature is prone to love and ready to return love, always embracing that which is akin to him. And when one of them meets with his other half, the actual half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy, and one will not be out of the other’s sight, as I may say, even for a moment: these are the people who pass their whole lives together, and yet they could not explain what they desire of one another. For the intense yearning which each of them has towards the other does not appear to be the desire of lover’s intercourse, but of something else which the soul of either evidently desires and cannot tell, and of which she has only a dark and doubtful presentiment.
Suppose Hephaestus, with his instruments, to come to the pair who are lying side by side and to say to them, ‘What do you mortals want of one another?’
They would be unable to explain. And suppose further, that when he saw their perplexity he said: ‘Do you desire to be wholly one; always day and night in one another’s company? for if this is what you desire, I am ready to melt and fuse you together, so that being two you shall become one, and while you live live a common life as if you were a single man, and after your death in the world below still be one departed soul, instead of two–I ask whether this is what you lovingly desire and whether you are satisfied to attain this?’–
There is not a man of them who when he heard the proposal would deny or would not acknowledge that this meeting and melting into one another, this becoming one instead of two, was the very expression of his ancient need.
And the reason is that human nature was originally one and we were a whole, and the desire and pursuit of the whole is called love. There was a time, I say, when we were one, but now because of the wickedness of mankind God has dispersed us, as the Arcadians were dispersed into villages by the Lacedaemonians. And if we are not obedient to the gods, there is a danger that we shall be split up again and go about in basso-relievo, like the profile figures showing only one half the nose which are sculptured on monuments, and that we shall be like tallies.
Wherefore let us exhort all men to piety in all things, that we may avoid evil and obtain the good, taking Love for our leader and commander.
Let no one oppose him–he is the enemy of the gods who opposes him. For if we are friends of God and at peace with him we shall find our own true loves, which rarely happens in this world at present. I am serious, and therefore I must beg Eryximachus not to make fun or to find any allusion in what I am saying to Pausanias and Agathon, who, as I suspect, are both of the manly nature, and belong to the class which I have been describing. But my words have a wider application–they include men and women everywhere; and I believe that if our loves were perfectly accomplished, and each one returning to his primeval nature had his original true love, then our race would be happy. And if this would be best of all, the best in the next degree must in present circumstances be the nearest approach to such a union; and that will be the attainment of a congenial love.
Wherefore, if we would praise him who has given to us the benefit, we must praise the god Love, who is our greatest benefactor, both leading us in this life back to our own nature, and giving us high hopes for the future, for he promises that if we are pious, he will restore us to our original state, and heal us and make us happy and blessed.
This, Eryximachus, is my discourse of love, which, although different to yours, I must beg you to leave unassailed by the shafts of your ridicule, in order that each may have his turn; each, or rather either, for Agathon and Socrates are the only ones left.
