Reminders That We Are a Part of Something Beautiful

The challenges we face are now increasing beyond what we have ever known before. They will continue to mount like a great flight of stairs as we walk up the path of Ascension. And as we climb, we can hold songs like this in our hearts, reminders of our Light during the dark moments. We will need the reminders. Reminders that we are a part of something beautiful.

Something Beautiful

By Alexi Murdoch

May the Grace of God be with you always, in your heart
May you know the truth inside you from the start
May you find the strength to know that you are a
part of something beautiful...

And I thought that I saw, a light Shine, I thought that I saw a light shine
Yes, I thought, that I saw, a light Shine; I think I see a light shine, now....

May the Grace of God be with you always, in your heart
May you know the truth inside you from the start
May you find the strength to know that you are a
Part of something beautiful...

May the Grace of God be with you always, in your heart

May you find the strength to know that you are a
Part of something beautiful...

Each Voice Makes a Difference

Late last night I had in mind to write this morning about the myriad challenges the oil volcano raises for us. This morning I sit is stunned grief, outrage, and a sense of helplessness at the unprovoked murder of humanitarian activists flying the white flag by Israeli military forces in international waters.

How can I respond in any meaningful and powerful way? I am many miles from the White House and Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC. I've emailed the Obama administration with all the politeness I can muster, urging our government to condemn this terrorist attack on civilians transporting humanitarian aide. I've called a relative in Washington, DC, one who has for over 20 years protested for the rights of Palestinians, voicing that I am strongly there beside him in voice and spirit whenever he goes to protest outside the Israeli embassy or the White House. I've posted on Facebook in an effort to call attention away from meaningless Farmville activities and other shallow self preoccupations. Called the UN requesting the US ambassador the the UN vote for condemnation and a full inquiry. Emailed my representatives in Congress requesting condemnation of Israel and elimination of all military funding for Israel in the FY 2011 budget.

I ask myself, "Does voicing my outrage and calling for the end of the real "terrorist" assaults on the people of the world by the dark forces matter? Does it make any difference?"

If I'm to stand by what I know as truth in my heart, that our thoughts, our expressions, our actions make all the difference in the universe, then the answer is Yes. Each person speaking up adds to the collective voice of dissent against all the atrocities inflicted by the dark forces. My voice makes a difference. Your voice makes a difference. Collectively we do have the power to change the world. We are supported by all the Light Forces in the Universe. The people united will never be defeated.

El Pueblo Unido

Directing Our Thoughts and Images Forward

I've been watch and listening the past few days. In a space of taking in information, rather than one of expressing. Hence my lack of posting. I trust you understand. Now I have a whole lot to say here....

We need to closely monitor our thoughts and mental images now and in the days ahead. Even within the awakened community, I'm seeing a lot of fear about what's transpiring in the outer world. When I read people writing things on the net like "we're doomed." or "we're all going to end up in detention camps." I say, "Cancel, Cancel, Cancel!" What we think, and say, and write matters. We've been misled to believe we are powerless and that what we do doesn't make much difference. The truth is that we are immensely powerful and that the thoughts we put out go out and become manifest. None are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.

If you aren't sure about whether your thoughts precede what materializes, try to find one single thing you've made without first thinking and picturing it.....See? Everything starts with thought.

What we read and write is just as important. When we repeatedly describe aspects of the dark forces, particularly with anger or fear, we just reinforce their presence. We validate their existence. Is this what you want to be doing? Pretty sure the answer is No. Use the phrase "Cancel, Cancel, Cancel." liberally when necessary.

I'm not suggesting that one pretend they don't exist. Or maybe I am suggesting that in a way. It's a balance really. While it's vitally important to monitor what is happening at the global level, do so with a sense of celebration, not dread. Isn't the demise of the illuminati created systems of enslavement what we've been hoping for?

Another thing I notice is that there is much confusion out there between the challenges created by the Powers That Be further tightening their control in their efforts to establish total police states, and the challenges that come from our dysfunctional systems collapsing. They are two distinctly separate things. I haven't found a single person, whether awake or a total sheeple, who does not agree that our systems no longer (never is probably more accurate) serve our needs. These are the illuminati created systems, created for the purpose of separating us from our inner knowing and our magnificence.

The Illuminati are going down now. The collapse of their plans is taking place with great swiftness. WhoooHeee!!! Finally! About time! If you read the recent Shape of Things to Come web bot report (see sidebar link to Half Past human), you may have noted that within a year, they will have been fully exposed to the masses (this takes place within the next two and a half months), rounded up and tried for their crimes. Given how much they control and how asleep the majority are, this is a lightning fast track we're on. After following the web bot reports for a couple of years, I've found them to be very accurate, particularly in regard to timing.

So be clear in your mind. None of us want to experience the chaos and misery of having our every freedom and/or life taken away through the imposition of a total police state. So open your heart to much gratitude that this is Not going to happen. Now, as you most surely recognize, as our systems collapse, which they all will do with the collapse of our monetary system around which all is structured, there will be a lot of chaos and many challenges. It is also the opportunity of the Ages. It's our opportunity to create a world and way of life that respects, appreciates, and supports all living things. Is it going to be easy? No, not hardly. I can assure you, with some authority, that it will be the most worthwhile endeavor we've ever made. Much work, and so very much to look forward to.

Back to our thoughts and mental images, what we write and read. We all need to become even more self aware about what we are focusing on. Search out and acknowledge, each morning and evening, what you are grateful for. Doing so not only brings into your life more to be grateful for, it also shifts your mental focus onto what is good and beneficial. Make the habit now, if you haven't already done so. Look forward. Start thinking about what a perfect world looks like. What do you want? Create the images in your mind. Create the images in your mind.

I bid you Love & Light!

Marking Mile Stones Amidst Our Bursts of Expansion

One year ago today, my beloved dog, Audrey, passed over. Audrey was a wise old soul who shared much wisdom and compassion throughout her life. She was 11 years, one month, and one day old on the day of her passing, 11 11.

Audrey accompanied me through many transitions, in the physical, the mental and emotional, and the spiritual levels. She opened doors for me, took me to parks I wouldn't have experienced, led me to neighbors and new friends I wouldn't have otherwise met, and wove great hilarity and laughter through my days. I spoke with her constantly. She understood every single word I said, no matter how complex or abstract the topic. She was a hard head who liked to have things her way. In knowing her, I learned that I'm like this too. More than once, she gave me a daily routine to follow which served as a path out of the depths of darkness and grief.

Anniversaries such as this can serve as mile markers for us. In acknowledging this day one year ago, my attention is drawn to how far I've traveled in such a short time. We can use these mile markers to pause, look back on who we were then, check where we are now, and from this comparison, come to appreciate our growth on all levels. It's important for our continued growth and expansion that we assess our progress from time to time. It helps to place ourselves in the present. It helps us remember to pause, especially now when all is transforming with such speed.

Many of my online contacts, as well as in my personal life, are sharing that they too are experiencing this burst of expansion over the past three weeks or so. What I'm experiencing is exciting, energizing, stupefying, and confusing. Internally, there is a spaciousness I've never felt before coupled with a greater level of comprehension. At the same time, my ability to focus and concentrate is diminished by about half. I strive to communicate and feel at a loss to find words that describe what I'm experiencing and my emerging levels of understanding. My sense of time has gone wonky. What feels like 20 minutes turns out to be two hours and vice versa. I'm operating more in the present. This is a good thing. Although it means that what I laid out clearly in my mind while driving somewhere is a tattered mess by the time I get back to my computer to write it out. I'm just not there any more.

It's comforting to know that we are not alone in going through this experience. If we didn't have someone else who could reply, "I know exactly what you mean, It's happening to me now too." we'd really feel lost.

All in all, it's an amazing transition. The Higher Self descending down to reside more fully in the physical body. The process has been going on for some time. Yet this current phase is a huge burst, a major step towards embodying our Whole Selves. As this occurs, it will take time for us to integrate and adjust. And as we integrate more of our whole Self, it will become easier to function in our daily lives. At the moment it feels very awkward to be half Wiser Self and half blithering idiot.

There is an image that I've used for many years that aids my understanding while going through major transitions. It's the image of a lake. After days of bright sunshine and calm steadiness, the lake takes on a cloudiness of small particles and microscopic algae floating throughout the water. Then the storm comes and everything is all churned up, the waves choppy, dark clouds and rain falling, the wind whipping up the currents. In the morning after the storm passes, the sun comes out and the lake is sparkling with pristine, clear waters. Just like the lake, we have to go through the churning up of the storm to reach a new level of clarity. Knowing where we are in this process helps us weather through the turbulence of our major transitions. Knowing we are together in this greatest of transitions. Knowing that we have Light Beings and Guardian Angels there to guide us.

Audrey, Here's to you, my Guardian Angel Dog Spirit. In heart, we travel together still. I too cherish you always. ♥

Learning to Manifest is an Experiential Process

Over the past days since posting the urgent call to prayer from Arvol Looking Horse, and following the issue of coordinating collective thought for positive change on Les Visible's Reflections in a Petri Dish, I've been pondering the activity of Manifesting. At different points I was ready to post something here, then finally realized that it's a much larger topic than can be handled in one post. With this in mind, it seems best to start by sharing some of my journey in learning about manifesting.

One way we can analyze our lives is to see it as on ongoing process of gaining conscious awareness of how we create our reality. Thinking back, it was six or seven years ago that I started a focused inquiry into consciously manifesting. At the onset, I felt intuitively that I could bring about what I wanted, I just didn't understand how to do it. There were a couple of situations in my work life that I wanted desperately to unfold in a different manner than they had been doing thus far. First I read books like Wayne Dyer's The power of Intention and a number of Deepak Chopra's books. I studied Feng Shui. It seemed to me that I understood what I was reading, but none of the situations changed at all. I kept working at it. I kept visualizing and visualizing. I got more and more frustrated and discouraged.

Very early one morning I got up to journal. My writing led me to an exploration about manifesting. I started writing down every instance I could remember that what I wanted appeared "like magic". The list got longer and longer. As it grew I confirmed for myself that I really did have the ability to create what I wanted. I did it all the time. So what was hindering the manifestation of what I wanted in my work situation?

The term Like Magic struck me very strongly. Suddenly, I jumped up and went to a piece of artwork my daughter had made for me, and there in the piece was the written message "Remember you are magic." Then came the memory of more than one client telling me what I had done to change their life was magic. In my head I heard the lyrics of a song that played on the radio during a summer when I experienced a very magical transformation, Olivia Newton John singing "Magic". "You've got to believe you are magic, nothing can stand in your way..." OK, one answer to what was tripping me up was not believing I was magic. Believing in our own ability to create is one of the keys to consciously manifesting.

As I looked over the list I noticed another common element in each of the successful situations. I hadn't tried really hard to make what I wanted appear. Actually, I hadn't tried at all. I'd simply said in my mind, "I want ....." or "I need .....", then went about whatever I was doing without thinking about it much. And it showed up, even when it was a total long shot. So another answer as to what was hindering my efforts, was that I was putting way too much effort into the process. I was trying too hard. This is a big problem, especially when what we want to manifest is something we really need at the moment. And we all know about those situations.

What I didn't understand at the time was that I had only just started to scratch the surface of what is required in order to consciously manifest. Everything is a process. The process of learning to consciously manifest takes time. The various elements are revealed to us when we reach the point in our evolution and growth, that we can grasp their significance and utilize them for our highest good.

Finding Resolution of Separation Amid the Leaking Oil

I've read comments from a few people recently noting that they really notice the separation between themselves and others who are not awake. That the shifts in the past week or so really widened the chasm. I have to agree. It's really two different worlds now. It's harder to communicate, harder to remember how to operate in the old world in a way that doesn't draw attention. Don't know about you, but I have to watch myself or I'm inclined to express my perceptions a little too succinctly and draw shocked looks from the anesthetized.

This is what I was pondering two nights ago when I started this post. Today appears a bit different. The oil leaking from the deep wound in the Earth in the Gulf of Mexico opens the heart and most, whatever their state of awareness, feel sorrow and horror from this situation. Everything serves a purpose. The catastrophic oil leak is putting the masses in touch with their reverence for this jewel of the Universe we call home. It calls their attention to the fragility of our ecosystem, fragility caused by our collective acquiescence to a system of abuse for profit. "What have we done?"

In that opening of the heart and ignited feelings of reverence and concern for our planet, the chasm between the awake and the asleep suddenly closes. Here is a point of unity for all but the profit seekers. Perhaps an opportunity for more to awaken from their illusion slumbers. I find myself wondering, Do they, the executives of BP, Halliburton, and Transocean, feel any shame or remorse? Is this situation critical enough for them to denounce the dark force that operates through them? If enough recognize that we each hold responsibility for the system of resource rape, there is great possibility. Acknowledging responsibility for the damage contains within it the recognition of responsibility to end the system. When we see we had a role in creating something we can then see we have not only the responsibility, but also the ability, to change that something.

The energy of accountability has been streaming into Earth and permeating all of our personal circumstances. Look around, you'll see many situations of people having to acknowledge they are accountable for their actions. You can probably see it in your own life if you haven't already noticed it. When we own that we are accountable, we begin to realize our own power as Creators. This is a step towards owning our Free Will.

Another opportunity presented by the oil leak, is the opportunity for people to raise their awareness and understanding about the power they possess in their thoughts, the power of holding an image in their minds and hearts, and ultimately, the exponential power of their collective thoughts. As I observe the goings on here and there, it's becoming more apparent to me that even many of the awakened overlook the power of their thoughts and words. Are we in a situation that can change that?

It's been widely noted that when a person's life, or that of their dearly loved one, is threatened they will pray, regardless of whether they believe in God or not. Truly our lives and the lives of many species are threatened by 2,500,000 gallons of gushing oil pouring into our oceans per day. Is not this enough to cause people all around the globe to focus their thoughts and prayers on finding a solution? The opportunity for learning the power of our collective thought is present. All anyone has to do to take advantage of the opportunity is join in by holding the image of the oil no longer leaking and the ocean floor healing.

The sadness in my heart rises with each gallon of oil gushing up into the oceans.
Our Earth! When in pain, I look to the benefits that can be found in the situation. The more devastating the situation, the larger the benefit I search for. I find there is always a balance of opportunity. It's looking for a balance. That's where the perfection lies. The resolution of duality.

Urgent Call for Prayer from the 19th Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe

Our collective thoughts have immense power, many times greater than we recognize. The more sustained we are in holding our thoughts on a single image, the greater the power. If we hold the Image in our hearts and minds of the wound of the Earth healing, we can change this course of destruction. Please share this urgent call with your circles.

This message comes from Arvol Looking Horse - (19th generation Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe):

A Great Urgency

To All World Religious and Spiritual Leaders

My Relatives,

Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I
ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.

We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.

The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The
catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the
bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that we cannot afford to continue to make.

I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with
the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.

I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers
for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as
Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth.

As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to
assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc¹I Maka).

We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the
winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in
repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.

As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that
what we create can have lasting effects on all life.

So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along
with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, World
Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural
site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our children¹s future and well-being, and the generations to come.

Onipikte (that we shall live),

Chief Arvol Looking Horse

No Two Days the Same, Yet Hope Springs From the Eternal

It's been difficult for me to write lately, when previously I had too much to say and kept a list of future blog posts in the ready. We are shifting so quickly now. No two days are like the next. I'm hearing from numerous others that they are also going through very significant shifts internally. I'll write about mine and in the process perhaps you'll find some clarity for yourself. Maybe I will too. It's sort of like trying to tell someone the plot of a movie when you're still in the middle of watching it for the first time.

Last week I wrote about my awareness that there was some huge energy coming in that initiated an expansion of perception within me. Then I had two days of family visiting and we focused on physical labor taking down the deck. It came at a good time to ground the expansion. Doing physical labor helps us integrate changes in our mental and emotional fields with the physical body. Then I had two days where I didn't know what to say. Nothing came to me. I felt very flat. This morning early on, my mind felt like a computer with too much stored memory on the hard drive leaving too little free space to pull out and look at individual files. I'd not experienced such a definable type of slowness before.

Weird as it may sound, simultaneously throughout this past week, I've felt a growing sense that good things are coming together in the outer world. Despite the continuing efforts of the Illuminati to place us under the New World order. It's become harder for me to worry about the dark forces. My concern keeps gradually lessening. Not just about all their plots to control, but also it's harder for me to feel concern for a couple of situations in my personal life that previously would have caused me great concern. I found myself this morning laughing about my lack of concern. Then wondering am I losing it? Or finding the truth.

This morning some very positive things were reported in George Ure's column (click on Urban Survival in the sidebar). It's worth reading. The Senate actually passed 96 to 0 to audit the Federal (not, it's a private bank) Reserve. Who'd have thought that would get passed, much less by unanimous vote. We'll see if it gets through the House and not vetoed. Still, this is a hopeful shift. Big, big party scheduled for the day wee finally take back our Constitutional authority to issue currency from the Federal Reserve and do away with all the central banks worldwide. George also included an awesome Youtube video of Robert Steele. When a former insider speaks out and very simply lays out the plan to take back control of our government, and does so in a way that even the unawakened can understand, it's a gift. I recommend watching it and passing it on to your contacts, both awake and still in sheeple mode. Robert Steele makes the case that it's easier than we think it is, and after listening to him, he might just be right. I take these as outer confirmations of the sense of hope I'd been experiencing.

Another awareness of the past week, is that all those who are speaking out with their different sensitivities and perspectives, are operating from a higher level of coordination. They speaking out, offering guidance, sharing their perspective, and many have been drawn to them. One is sensitive to the larger energies coming into the planet, another is keenly perceptive to the political operations of the dark forces, another relates the outer events to the spiritual realms, still another channels information from energy beings looking at us from the higher dimensions. They are each unique and each immensely valuable in awakening the consciousness. They offer validation of what we are each experiencing. And these voices come together like a symphony playing the music of the spheres. it's their coordination that I've become keenly aware of recently. The coordinated physical presence of the Light Forces.

Each of us come in with our unique sensitivities and perspectives to share, and everyone's contribution is valuable and vital in our expansion and the Ascension. We tend not to value our own contribution because it is so natural to us. If it's so easy and natural could it really be of value? The answer is, Oh yes! Most Definitely. The fact is we came in well prepared and all of our life experiences have been perfect in that they have further honed our sensitivities and unique talents. Somewhere in the illusions placed upon us through the cultural manipulations of the dark forces, we all got the message that we had to work so incredibly hard to deserve some minute amount of good in our lives (or only in the afterlife). That illusion is falling away now with great speed. How cool is that?!!!

Imagine...Living your life where your "work" is simply being exactly who you are, doing what you love to do! We are almost there, it's drawing nearer. The more we embody this in our day to day lives, the faster it materializes around us. We'll still have a lot of cleaning up to do as the old systems collapse. That's what I was speaking about last week in the post about rolling up our sleeves, lots of clean up work and providing for those who've been displaced in the process. Still, today the phrase that keeps coming to mind is "Hope springs eternal." That's happening now. Hope is springing from the Eternal. A very good corner to have turned. Tomorrow, we'll see what tomorrow brings.

With the Force of Love and Creation!

Quiet, Growing Food & Inspiration

After the intense energy settling in the past few weeks, that sparked a profound widening and expansion within, things have now settled down. At least internally for me. The past couple of days, I been feeling shock still. Others I talk to feel something similar. It's very quiet within and around. Almost like when all the animals on the plains perk up their ears and freeze when they sense danger approaching. That what the past two days have felt like. My inner voices are all stilled and listening. That's why I haven't posted in a few days. Also family visiting for Mother's Day weekend here in the States. In all this quietness, I haven't known what to say. So I'll turn to nature and growing food.

One of the priorities now is the vegetable garden. Last month I started a lot of seedlings using the method provided by Anastasia in the Ringing Cedars series. I was amazed at how fast the seeds germinated. I had a much higher germination rate than the seed packages predicted, especially for Swiss Chard, which has always been a problem. Tomorrow my plan is to transplant the small seedlings into larger containers. Tomorrow is the New Moon. I'll also be planting another round of seedlings. I'm predicting that the vegetables grown so their nutrients are tailored just for me, will taste better than anything I've ever tasted. If they are as good as other vegetables I've grown myself, I'll be more than content.

I moved into my current home late last fall. The previous owners clearly enjoyed and spent great care and effort in the gardens. They did not, however, devote any of their gardening efforts towards growing of vegetables. There are a number of blueberry bushes (with clumps of blueberries now plumping:), but that's the extent of the food production capacity prior to my tenancy on the land. It takes lots and lots of work to get vegetable beds in, particularly when the soil is full of clay and requires lots of amendments. Vegetables are picky about their soil compared to flowering plants.

After scoping out the property during the winter months, and monitoring the sunlight throughout the day, I decided on the perfect spot for the vegetables. It only requires taking down 20' x 32' of decking build around an old above ground pool and disassembling the pool. Everything is very well built here, including the deck. The decking boards are nailed down with galvanized deck nails, the ones with the little ridges all along them so they don't pop up. They're a bear to pull up. The lumber's all in good shape and will be reused in building raised beds and a chicken coop. The outer railing of the deck, which has posts sunk in cement, rises about eight feet off the ground and will remain in place with wire fencing added. This will help protect the vegetables and chickens from deer, raccoons, possums, foxes, etc. At least that's the plan. I've heard a couple of tragic stories about predators getting into neighbor's chicken houses and I want take precautions to prevent loss of life and heartbreak.

We're a third of the way through the demolition process and hope to knock out the rest this weekend, if we work really hard. I'm planning the layout of the raised beds and looking at chicken coop designs today, a good project for a rainy day. I also have to decide on what breeds of chickens to raise. Here's some more breed info to look through. Are they awesome?!! I never realized there were so many factors to consider, egg size and color, temperament, and looks. I'd like a handsome assortment of chickens as well as a steady supply of fresh eggs. Somewhere in all this, I also want to get bunch grapes, and raspberry and blackberry canes planted, put in the herb garden, and later this fall get an orchard established. Then there's some research to do on raising goats. They could help keep the field grasses mowed and provide goat milk for cheese. I've never milked a goat, or even a cow. But I can learn. Gradually I'm moving closer to sustainability. Overall, not bad for being a city girl who spent most of her life in Washington, DC, if I do say so.

Reading the Ringing Cedars series (also available on Amazon) deepens my understanding and connection to the natural world around me. And so much more. I've been meaning to write about these books. If only everyone would read them the world would change immediately. It's the true story from and about Anastasia, a young woman who presently lives alone in the Siberian Forest. She is a role model of what expanded consciousness is. I've read all kinds of spiritual books but nothing comes close to this on showing us the abilities we have as our birthright. Nor do any other books help uncover our memories of how life used to be before the Illuminati imposed itself on everything. They paint a vivid picture of how we can live in harmony with each other and all living things, show us the remarkable intelligence available through the universal mind, and provide guidance on how to raise our children without the limitations we've been trying to overcome since they were imposed upon us. I never imagined that a series of books could keep my interest and attention beyond perhaps the third volume, but these I'll read and probably reread. Reading these books will fill you with joy and inspiration that doesn't fade. Something we need by the truck load in these dark days.

Anything that supports us in visualizing our world without the existence or operation of the Illuminati/Bilderberg/PTB is a really good thing. So is visualizing them falling on their own swords and self-destructing on their own. There is power in our thoughts and the images we create in our mind, especially when coupled with the joy we feel when our vision manifests. United, our power is exponentially greater.

Keep heart & Godspeed

Time to Roll Up Our Sleeves, Revealing Who We Really Are

Back in August 2008, when I sensed the Fall was imminent, I had thought it would continue with great momentum from the October crash. Instead, we've been sitting here in a sort of holding position wondering when it would finally happen. Some family and friends who I had warned back then, have taken this lull as proof that I'm just a kook living in a fantasy world. But then, the perception is mutual.

It's now eighteen months later and I interpret this lull as a gift. We were given more time to prepare, in the physical, as well as mentally and emotionally. Many of us relocated to where we need to be now. Having more time allowed us to expand our sensitivities and recognize our embodiment of the Divine.

My whole being tells me that School time just ended. It ended this week. The real deal is here. We came here to work on ground level in this great transition. The work bell is ringing. We are about to be so incredibly busy. So get a good night's sleep, eat well, and take some deep breathes.

Many in the New Age movement operate with their own delusion, even though they believe they are awake. They may be aware of the reality that the Illuminati have been controlling the masses with F.E.A.R., False Evidence Appearing Real, yet anyone who believes they are going to be protected from any discomfort and challenges because Ascension is coming, better open their eyes. No one is going to live blissfully out on the herb farm, waiting to celebrate the Aliens when they land, and otherwise no be inconvenienced.

The new age really is approaching. However, we first have to deal with the collapse of all the old systems, much suffering and loss, great challenges, and cleaning up. Ushering the new age is roll up your sleeves and walk your talk time. It's our opportunity to test our embodiment of the Qualities of the Divine - courage, strength, faith, compassion, forgiveness, and inspiration, to name a few.

Time to roll up our sleeves and reveal ourselves for what we are, Gods acting as the Hands of God.

Oil Leaks and Swelling Tides

We are experiencing another shift in the energy. The past two days I've felt a heaviness, somewhat foreboding. It's been draining and leaves me deeply tired. On one level I'm picking up the growing sense of desperation within the population as they become more aware that things are not the way they've always been and our systems are now so unstable. My empathic reading of people all feeling an uncertainty they haven't prepared themselves to experience.

On another level, I'm also aware that great sadness and loss now swells in my heart for the damage to our fragile balance of nature caused by the oil leaks in the Gulf of Mexico. Grieving at the soul level for the loss of marine life, destruction of the genius that is our ecosystem, and a growing sense of foreboding about the magnitude of the damage to these Earth systems that support life.

These oil leaks are a wake up call message from the Universe and Earth. "Don't you see what destruction you are wreaking on this gem of the Universe with your abuse of oil? Well we'll show you in speed action events what you have allowed to occur."

The leaks also serve to further expose to the masses the dark forces behind Big Oil. Illuminati being further exposed and falling on their swords as they experience that the can of worms they opened in their greed is larger than they can handle. The population backlash is steadily growing. Events like these oil leaks fuel (pun intended by the Divine) the rising tide of global revolution. Gasoline to the fire, so to speak.

What we came here to take part in is finally unfolding everywhere we look. The speed of unfolding accelerates so quickly now that it can not be overlooked. Everything speeds up as we approach our entry into no time. This is where we'll learn that we have nothing but our Divine Spirits and discover that our Divine Spirits are really all we ever needed to begin with.

Send Love & Light out where ever you go. Speak out and claim your Free Will to choose life lived in Balance, Harmony and Peace with all other living beings. Stay centered in the eye of the storm. I bid you all courage and expression of your true hearts.

The Unfolding Process of What It Means to Seek the Wisdom Within

Tomorrow evening I'm teaching a class at the Atlanta Self Discovery Center titled Intro to Alchemy, about accessing the wisdom within. It's been quite an amazing and interesting process over these weeks as I've thought about what accessing the wisdom within means, so I decided I would share some of it. The idea to teach about the wisdom within came to me about six weeks ago. I had become really cognizant of how often people use the phrase "going within". I see it all over the place, in books, websites, on Facebook, hear people talking about it. It's one of the core teachings in all the spiritual and religious texts.

Yet I found myself asking do most people really know what going within or seeking the wisdom within means? If they're finding the wisdom within, then why is it not reflected in the way people behave in their lives? The population of this planet is still on the path of destruction. If all this wisdom is being accessed, they why don't we see things changing dramatically for the better?

My initial design for the class was focused on how we can really gain wisdom from our experiences. As I've said before (and will undoubtedly say again), we come here incarnate on the material plane on Earth to experience and learn. We come here to learn from our experiences. And there is such wealth of wisdom in our experiences that few people ever harvest as they go along. Doesn't it make sense to distill the lessons and wisdom while we're still here so that we can apply it as we progress through our life?

One of the most magical aspects of the way our lives unfold is that at any given point, we are prepared. Our experiences build upon one another so that for any challenge we currently face, the answers we need were already given to us through our previous experiences. The sad thing is that culturally, we are never taught how to examine our experiences and extract the learning.
I was first presented with this concept many years ago. Looking back, I believe I sort of understood this. As I've continued through in life, I've found over and over again that this is true. We are always prepared, whether we realize it or not. Much easier to face the uncertainty of the unknown future when you know that you have everything you'll need, isn't it?

The entire universe is present in our Self. We are each a micro level reflection of the Macro level Universe. So if we know and understand our self, then we come to know and understand All That Is. Do you ever run out of things to discover about your self? Aren't we each fathomless? I know I am. There is always more to discover and understand. That is what is meant by As Above, So Below.

That was my concept, to focus this class on how we can really learn from our experiences and how to dig out the real gems of wisdom. Then by coincidence, or should I say without conscious intent, I wondered on to some information about the Universal Mind, also called the Matrix, or the Collective Consciousness. The Universal Mind contains everything - past, present, and future, all information, ideas, solutions. When we are incarnate in the material world, we also exist simultaneously on the level of the Universal Mind. For the most part we are not conscious of this existence. We become conscious of information from the Universal Mind through dreams, intuition, "psychic' awareness. When we pass out of our bodies at "death" then wee exist only on the level of the Universal Mind. When we talk about expanding consciousness, my understanding at present is that we are opening up so that we become conscious of the Universal Mind and can access any information we want, while residing in our bodies. Two weeks from now, my understanding may shift completely.

The last few days I find myself aware of Divine Knowing. That the wisdom within is revealed and present in our actions, when we keep our awareness present in the moment. I wrote about this yesterday. This takes us right back to our experiences and the wisdom woven throughout. Doesn't it? Or is this another way that wisdom is revealed to us. Or both. I'm not certain at the moment.

So here I am this evening doing last preparations for teaching this class tomorrow. And I have to say that the more I've come to understand in the past six weeks or so, the more I'm aware that I know so little. And what I do feel I have some understanding of is all interrelated. Everything is, so it's extremely easy to go wandering off on tangents that are just as interesting. Which is not really what I want to do when teaching tomorrow.

Thankfully, I know that the class will hold it's own energy, a collective of all who attend. I will check in with where everyone is in their understanding about what it means to access their own wisdom within, then move from there at a pace they are comfortable with. I remind myself we are all Masters. I will remind the participants of this at the start. Really, this class is just another experiential opportunity for us to come together and assist one another as allies in discovering our wisdom within. Hopefully, me included. I'll trust the process.

With Love,

Acquired Knowledge is Not Divine Knowing

Acquired knowledge is not the same thing as Divine Knowing. Many confuse the two. Most actually. You can see it all around you. People who mistakenly believe that study and memorization of facts from various spiritual teachings gives them Divine Knowing. They study sacred geometry, Tarot, the Mayan Calendar, etc. as if this acquired knowledge with unlock the door to the Light. This is not to say that the teachings are without value. Far from it. Such teaching are highly valuable when used as tools to elicit understanding of who we are as expressions of the Divine Creator.

What matters is how we live in each moment and how we interact with all the other expressions of the Creator that surround us. Divine knowing appears only through our actions and interactions with Self and Other. Not through the recitation of spiritual text. One can reach enlightenment without ever opening a book. Divine wisdom is offered to us continually in our experiences of living a life.

Diving Knowing in action is the ability to set aside what you are doing and give your full attention to a child who wants to tell you something.

Diving knowing is present in the moments you fill with awe and wonder at the mystery and magnificence of a seedling emerging from the combination of dark soil, water and light of the Sun.

Divine knowing permeates our beings when we say we are sorry from a true heart when we err, and when we forgive others who make no apology to us for their error.

Divine Knowing appears when we feel someone's smile at the very center of our heart.

We, and here I definitely include myself, make it all so complex. Yet there is a simplicity in understanding the Divine. A simplicity that defies expression in words. A simplicity that only finds expression through the heart in action.

This is what seems true to me at this moment. Then it will wisp away. I'm aware that I really know nothing and I'll continue on my path, seeking to understand what is greater than my comprehension. On occasion I look down and realize I'm walking with ruby slippers on my feet. Don't you?

Thoughts on Being Clairsentient & Expanding

I posted a comment yesterday promising to write about being clairsentient (also known as empath, or feeler). Feeling a bit guilty that it's taken me so long, yet everything happens when it's supposed to. Here goes...

I've been clairsentient as far back in this life as I can remember. Although I had no idea until about six years ago. I had assumed that I was just like most everyone else in regard what senses I had, see, hear, taste, smell, feel. When it was pointed out to me in a reading, a whole lot about my life made much more sense. I've not read much about this ability to intuit others' feelings, so I'm only about to share insights from my own experience.

Part of the reason I never clued in to the fact that I was reading others' feelings more readily than others could, was that it feels so natural as I experience it. It's also a very present experience. It happens in real time, rather than past or future. I'd always envied people who are clairvoyant or clairaudient. Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear voices or see visions that gave me answers for what to do in the future. Least that's what played in my mind from time to time, even after I recognized my own intuitive ability. I told a friend not so long ago, "I want to be clairaudient when I grow up." As if somehow having a voice of wisdom speaking in my head, this guidance would solve all my indecision when it arose. It would make me feel safe and confident. Today, I'm content with how I am. Having found this contentment, my intuitive perceptions for voice and images are expanding. I believe they are for all of us now as we awaken.

While many of the intuitives I've met have shared that they had great confusion and doubt about their sanity when they started to hear or see in expanded ways, they at least knew that this was an additional ability. How many people are there out there who have the empathic ability to feel the emotions of another person as if they were there own, and don't realize it? I don't know the answer, but I suspect there are quite a few. I run into them from time to time. We probably all do. And as we quickly progress now in our expansion, we are all becoming clairsentient.

Before I knew I was an empath, having this ability without the knowledge of it caused some problems for me. As a small child, I picked up on conflicts in my family, without actually hearing or witnessing disagreements, I picked up the feelings. I had constant ear infections, my body saying it didn't like what it was hearing. I started personal growth work and exploration of self in my twenties, which was very young at that time. I had to. I felt too much and with such intensity. But wasn't that perfect that it drove me to explore my self, my relationships, and my feelings.

One of the biggest challenges I had to work on was boundaries. Understanding what is my stuff to deal with and what belongs to another. It was all mushed together for me at first. Took a lot of work to get clear about. I see now that my empathic awareness contributed. I'd feel strong emotions and just figured the emotions were my own. Or I could get way over involved in someone else's life because I was feeling what they felt. I just morphed right into their being, in a way. Later, once I got really clear about boundaries, this became an asset in my work with people because I could so easily understand what they were experiencing and feeling, and validate their feelings.

One of the nicest aspects about being clairsentient is that it's super easy to clarify whether what you feel is your own feelings or the feelings of others. All you have to do is remind yourself that you're an empath. Immediately when you remind yourself, you'll know. It just become suddenly clear. This is me, that belongs to them. Oh, am I grateful it's that easy. Can't imagine the mess if it was any more complicated than a simple reminder.

These are some really important things to do if you are clairsentient. It will save your sanity and the sanity of the other people in your life:

1) Discover who you are. If we don't know our Self, how are we going to communication who we are to someone else?

2) Do the work to identify and sort out your own feelings. Keep working to resolve your feelings about issues and events from your past. This does not mean rehashing each and every past situation that bothers us. If we identify the important learning from an experience, it becomes worthwhile, even though it might have been extremely unpleasant.

3) Get clear about boundaries between yourself and others. By this I mean identify what are the issues, feeling, thoughts, activities that are yours. These are the only ones you have any power to change, control, resolve. This helps immensely in relationships too.

4) Ask the Universe to given you everything you need to do Items 1 - 3.

It really matter what your intuitive abilities are, these are important for everyone. We have to get our Self clear in order for the Self to expand.

Love & Light to all.
