Emancipation Day

Week 11, June 19th is Emancipation Day; the day black people were finally allowed their freedom from slavery, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was declared by Abraham Lincoln. It is a day of celebration for all of humanity as we come closer and closer to living on equal terms with our fellow human beings.  The very loud cry we hear today screams in no uncertain terms, BLACK LIVES MATTER! It is time for Freedom For All!

 As I mull over these emotional and powerful words they become personal for me as well.  I can’t help think of the years it has taken to free myself from the oppression of my own flawed belief system. Ideas and certainties of unworthiness, that I am less than and I will probably never be as good as anyone I can think of. How long has it taken any one of us to learn about and then make a lasting connection with our Higher Selves who would slowly teach us, bit by bit, who we really are? Remember we can only move as fast as we can allow, accept and believe in ourselves. Only in those times did we begin to really realize and awaken to our value, live from our newly discovered awareness and build upon that truth, to then discover how to hold our center of Light.

Because of our weeks together in conversation and with the expansion that has taken place, we are celebrating with a System For Modern Times and a new Spiritual Code. Laurel and I are developing this as a simple way to measure our thoughts and discussions by, one that will help us stay true to our evolving consciousness and true to ourselves.

The Trinity Of Enlightenment:


We envision a three-dimensional model that is as alive and vibrant as your awareness of it. There are two topics that promise to assist in this process; the first is the powerful Blessing Process. As we bless others we acknowledge diversity, we bring forth a curiosity that wants to know what you are doing and how it is appearing in the world. Blessing offers choice, I get to sift and sort according to my likes and dislikes choosing to be with what makes me feel good. I can always change my mind; I am a nomad at heart. I Am Sovereign. Blessing becomes a skill that allows you and others to be who they are without trying to control anything.

Secondly is the BREATH. The breath is the great equalizer because we all share the same air and co-exist on the same planet. When I saw people wearing tee shirts with the words “I Can’t Breathe” my reaction was “I’m Breathing With You”. (this was the God Force coming through)

There are two parts to Breath, Movement and Prana.

Prana is the life force within the breath, the God force.

Our physical breath is what propels the God Force onward.

Both are necessary for life, inner and outer, two sides of the same coin one supporting and expanding the other.

So my friend, check back soon for another installment

Much Love and many Blessings always,

AlixSandra and Laurel


We began Inner Focus Connect on April 10, 2020. Our purpose was simply to be a voice of comfort and connection as we started to navigate the unchartered waters of a pandemic. Laurel and I had no preconceived idea of where things would go but we understood there was a larger purpose, and so allowed ourselves to be led each week. Blessings, the power of blessings followed and the words, Only God Is In My Lungs set the tone of the weeks to follow. These last few weeks revealed The Trinity of Enlightenment, Non Judgment, Unconditional Love and Equality. And what moments these past three weeks have been with the uprising over the death of George Floyd. It was as if each week was scripted and we were on the front line.

What I know is that each call was life changing and I know each connection took time to integrate, incrementally inching up the awareness scale, becoming more enlightened with every thought. We head into the summer now knowing we are breathing together as never before because, the Breath is the Unifying Thread Connecting Us All.

You can revisit any of the calls by reading the posts on this page or listening to some of the recordings, not all of them made it onto the website.


I’m Breathing With You

This week our topic is EQUALITY and I offer this to you.  

I’m Breathing With You

by AlixSandra Parness   6/9/2020

The heavens opened one day long, long ago and God said, “Go Forth And Multiply.”

And so we did, and like a garden of various colors, sizes, shapes, with fragrance and purpose we inhabited the Earth and then began to discover ourselves.

And all the while God Said,” Have fun; I’m Breathing With You. The human heart is endowed with the capacity to Love, accept and allow, enjoying the brilliance of imagination and endurance in others and themselves.

Somewhere along the way we decided to limit the love, cut off the brilliance, shut down imagination… and in the struggle to regain what we once had, many lost enjoyment of the garden. Still God Said, I’m Breathing With You”. But within the Breath great change was coming about, you could feel it in the air we breathe and the rhythms of the day. And God is still breathing with us.

Centuries pass and there are still gardens, but mostly each only grows one variety of flowers. Segregated now, relegated to a certain part of the land the Iris’s look at the roses and long to grow along side them, and then there are the daffodils and the daises, the dandelions and the mustard greens all wondering where they will be welcome. Am I a weed to be pulled and thrown away or do I have value? As a problem in the collective are we committed enough to continue to move forward increasing conscious awareness.

The Breath Remembers and Calls forth a deep desire to be together once again. And so they call upon their friends the bees and the wind and ask them, “ will you help us come together in our big garden again, help us make lots of gardens with pathways and fountains”?

We’re Breathing With You they said and caused the seeds to flow and the pollen to grow new flowers, right over there in the Heart Of Humanity.

The cry is loud… Now Is The Time!  Here I AM and I’m Breathing With You.

Let me enjoy the beautiful color of your skin and feel the softness therein. Allow me the pleasure of listening to your songs as you strum the strings of joy.  Now, feeling the beating of drums, I’m Breathing with You, my heart dances with you. Beautiful Us.

You who have grown to great heights and you who choose to live close to earth, you who fly in the night skies and you who slither on the ground. The power is in the foxglove and the cosmos, the poppy and the cornflower, in the diversity of All That IS…  I am always Breathing With You.

Gone are the shackles that bind us telling us we are not good enough because, The Breath is the Great Equalizer, the one process none of us can live without. We all breathe the same air as God Breaths With Us, no discrimination. The murderer and the murdered, the hater and the lover, fearful and fearless breathing the same air, and still, God Is Breathing With Us.

Who could use a little love today, who needs a call or a visit from out of the blue, who wants to be seen and to know that Someone Is Breathing With Them Too.



TO Everyone who has been tuned in with us, we have so loved these past weeks with you. As we are winding down, looking forward to summer and new experiences, we wanted to use the Trinity of Enlightenment: Nonjudgment, Unconditional Love and Equality to underscore all of the messages that have come as a result of our unified connection.

Last weeks subject was Non-Judgment and amazing experiences as well as new and expanded thoughts were explored. This was the 8th week and a most powerful expression of enlightened living. Now, what comes next? You can’t get to unconditional love if you are judging. So when you find yourself in any kind of judgment, don’t judge yourself for being there, just notice it, perhaps even process the issue and align into a higher subject as soon as you can.

Alisa Pfeifle was integrating the energy of the call when she started to use the term “I Am The Love Of God”. So thank you Alisa for being the channel for our upcoming work this week.  We Are All One and We Are All In This Together, in ways we need to really own.

So this week started with upheaval, and continues with more chaos and anger as agitators across our country are firing up the night sky. People tired of injustice have taken to the streets in calm protest to say, “I won’t take this anymore!”   Black Lives Matter, Let Me Breathe, I Count, My Life Matters.

Even as I write these words I can remember that was me, reaching for my worthiness, looking for acceptance, finding my own way to where I stand today. My compassionate heart bleeds for the pain and suffering that has been America from the very beginning, from native Americans forced to give up their lives and their way of life because others wanted what they had, to immigrants from Ireland, Jews, Latinos, Blacks and others we know nothing about. Will there always be an oppressive energy for us to overcome?? Probably.

Why? Because this is the nature of humanity. What Inner Focus Connect is about is using the power of love inherent within us, to rise above the seeming pain and suffering while realizing you are the breath, you are the love, you are the acceptance you are seeking. If we learn anything from nonjudgment it is the power to Choose and to Bless
Everything. In those words, turning the other cheek now has greater significance.

Let me be very clear about that statement, turning the other cheek does not mean to look away when something is blatantly wrong. Be a ‘whistle blower’, Jesus saw something wrong in the Temple and turned over the tables. Unconditional Love has value, integrity, power and truth within its meaning.

You could look at the Trinity Of Enlightenment as a constellation of stars with each of the ideals sparkling forth and each of us asking, How Can I Get Myself Closer?  How Can I Love More?

Realize this! There is no normal, normal is static and not where we live in each moment. We live in the NOW with ever changing thought and ever changing action and the world is teaching us this lesson through Covid and Chaos as well as the all important peaceful demonstrations.

We had a space shuttle take off after a decade long wait, what is your space ride like? What are the unconscious beliefs that still need to be understood and overcome?  Do I hold myself accountable for what others are doing?

Unconditional Love is a tough taskmaster because it asks of us to hold steady within God’s Love… As The Breath Of God.

Our Inner Focus purpose is being realized, to leave a lasting pattern of understandings and awareness’s that will help stabilize and expand a deeper understanding of the greater picture before us; to realize the momentous time we are living in, and to be able to see humanity in all of its Glory. The future is being created in these moments. To be able to share our deepest feelings and creative thoughts together is truly a gift, Thank You For Being a Part of These Amazing Times With Us.

Much Love Always
Laurel and AlixSandra

Trinity Of Enlightenment


We have so loved these past weeks with you, as we begin to wind down our weekly discussions, we are all looking forward to summer and our new emerging experiences. To complete this time together we will to use the Trinity of Enlightenment: Nonjudgment, Unconditional Love and Equality to underscore all of the messages that have come as a result of our unified connection.

Our first subject is Non-Judgment

We ask you to really look at the judgments you may still be holding onto, and where they are held in your body. As you name one, allow the opposite Life Affirming idea to rise up and show you its beauty. Now will you recognize the inspiration that will come swiftly? Using that inspiration, feel into it; what will it take to accept the new thought and allow yourself to not be drawn into the past, and instead live in the present?

Our purpose is to leave a lasting pattern of thoughts that will help stabilize and expand a deeper understanding of the greater picture before us; to realize the momentous time we are living in, and to be able to see humanity in all of its Glory. The future is being created in these moments. To be able to share our deepest feelings and creative thoughts together is truly a gift.

Thank You For Being a Part of These Amazing Times With Us.
Much Love Always
Laurel and AlixSandra

Behind The Mask

by: AlixSandra Parness

Do I recognize you behind your mask,
Do I recognize the sparkle in your eyes
Do I hear your voice saying hi?
A momentary pause as we both light up and laugh at the crazy new world we find ourselves in.
Keeping our required distance we feign a hug and talk about how it will change someday.
I leave with my groceries but the feelings stay close, grounded in the memory of precious times we shared together.

I Bless the Eternalness of Life.
I Bless the Power of Smiles that can lift and shift my day,
Smiles hidden behind the mask, but still finding their way upward into those sparkling eyes of joyful recognition.
I think I shall be more conscious of the power of smiling in the days to come, grounding my love of life, and cherishing the hidden smiles that I know are ready to burst into laughter.
Oh what fun we’ll have thinking back on these days.

In The Face Of Change

“The Old Order is being challenged on every front. Who decides what will take its place? The decision makers will be the ones who care enough to take a stand, who have the resiliency to stay the course, who have the bravery, courage, determination and skills to birth bold new solutions” Jean Houston

This week we are going to look at the many faces of change as some doors open and others stay closed.

Where are you as you are trying to figure out your next steps? Calling forth your internal wisdom, looking outside for leadership, probably all of those things, plus.

After so many weeks of this pandemic affecting our world in a myriad of ways, we are looking at restlessness as well as those reveling in the joy of family and rest. As we talked about this subject the vision of the Yin Yang became prevalent, the light in natural flow with the darkness, the seeds of each growing. And taking on new meaning.

The questions that we will be talking about and want your input on is: Where Is The Love and Where Is The Anger?
Where are You? The New Normal??

Inner Focus Connect is a Community of Shared Values, shifting mass consciousness as each one incrementally steps onto a new platform of understanding. Change is a powerful tool; in this instance it is an earthquake of feelings and points of view meant to ‘shake up’ belief systems and the certainties we all hold dear. These conversations are changing our ability to recognize adaptability, self-reliance and ingenuity as we skillfully pave our own path knowing,
“We Are Really All In This Together!”.

The Power Of Knowing

This week our topic is POWER,               

Power of Choice and the right use of will; Power of alignment and self-respect, Power of Practice, looking forward and holding that place in you that is ‘teacher’.

Remember the Spirit Gate Cards, well we were guided to use the deck and see what would come forth. First the Master Card POWER, then Wolf Spirit Gate opened to Well-Being. We both knew guidance was inspiring us as AlixSandra had just posted Power! A Sign Of The Times on her facebook page.

When you know who you are, aligned in conscious awareness, you follow the feeling tone of words and ideas that “come” to you. As we are completely aligned in this process and with you, our Higher Selves are working in concert as never before. Both of us are delighted and surprised at where the road is taking us.

We know who we are and just as important we know who you are. Our tribe ebbs and flows but for the most part is aligned in intent and purpose. So, as we continue with these conversations for a while, join us in the practice of:

“I Know Who I Am, I am aligned with purpose and intent guided by my Higher Self. I reach for good feelings and laughter, appreciation and hope, I know well-being is Power.”

Breath Of God Self-Healing

I Am The Breath Of God and Only God Is In My Lungs.
I Am The Breath Of God And Only God Breathes through me. 
My Cells and Organs Breathe Gods Love and Generosity. 
The Breath Of God Balances and Harmonizes my Brain,

I Think Clearly and Move with Inspiration and Purpose.

I Am The Breath Of God And I See Only God Through My Eyes,
My mind is lifted and expanded from what I think I see and believe to a Broader Perspective: I KNOW
 “Goodness and Mercy shall follow me all the Days Of My Life”; Everything Will Work Out; Well-Being Surrounds and Protects Us Forevermore. “I Am The Essence Of Pure Goodness and My Goodness Has Nothing to Do With My Actions or the actions of anyone else”.

I can relax and feel the Presence of God flowing through me. As I live and breathe these words, I am lifted and others are lifted as well.

Your Compassionate Heart

My thoughts this Sunday morning are with those of you who can’t stay home, the people who must venture out especially the healthcare workers. After so many weeks of tending to unending pain and suffering, and the trauma of this experience, of which most of us have no idea about, has to be taking its toll. So, I’m speaking to you, you on the front lines, you in the operating rooms, you sitting there next to a dying person, you trying to answer questions that seem impossible.

When you’re feeling really helpless, and perhaps even void of anything, consider why you’re feeling those feelings. It is because you don’t believe you can control what’s happening out there, and no you can’t control what others are going through but you can hear this. One way you can relieve the tension within you is to bring in light and really hear the resounding


It’s your compassionate heart that shows up every day even if you are grieving the situation. It is your focus that helps those sick and dying to feel comforted in their world! The difficulty arises when the lines become blurred between their world and yours, you want to change their circumstances, perhaps look for someone to blame even God for all of this. Unfortunately, this disempowering road will only lead to a block wall and make you feel worse. 

Hard though it may be to hear the truth, remember your compassionate heart, remember you create your own reality and they create theirs no matter what it looks like.
You are always at choice.
Take a moment and really breathe deeply and probably you only have moments for this, it is now more important than ever to feel and deepen the connection between you and the God of your being, your Higher Self. This is the time to practice blessing your situation and blessing all of your friends and co-workers. See those in your care through those eyes, feel the unconditional love at play. Practice the connection you have within you and
You are being seen and noticed by many in this world and beyond; being appreciated, being thanked, people giving money, food, anything to help. Keep remembering and knowing you’re not alone. Ride the Synergy of That Love beyond this pandemic and into the world of your making, YOU, making a difference because of your compassionate heart.

Practice: After writing this and then having conversation with a colleague working on the front lines, spirit offered this practice:
“I Am The Breath Of God and Only God Is In My Lungs”
