I am writing this in the aftermath of two major hurricanes, ongoing fires, earthquakes and continuing social and political turmoil in the United States and elsewhere. Many of us have been feeling the fear energy wafting through our energetic atmosphere for quite a while, so today I want to dedicate a focus to self-love as a way to navigate through all of this. I hope you have not been directly affected by any of these events, and if you are my thoughts and prayers go out to you that you find your way back to your center soon. For the much larger group of us who have not been directly affected there still remains the question: "Am I going to continue to allow fearful thoughts and feelings into my space or am I going to choose differently?". Here then is our subject for today: self-love.
If I was to ask you to gauge to what percentage you love yourself, what would it be? 10%, 50%, 100%? If it is 100% you would probably not be reading this because your life would be so full of joyful creations that you are manifesting you wouldn't have the interest to find any ideas on how to improve yourself, correct? As someone who knows that he doesn't love himself 100% all of the time, or even some of the time, I feel that I am in good company of a lot of lovely beings sharing life here on Earth, working to become better in some way. It's ok to not love yourself completely, just begin where you are at. If you believe that you love yourself 50%, get into a 100% belief of that and go from there.
Life is moving forward and change is occurring. The 5th dimension is here and we are mostly yet to claim much of it, partly because we are all individually and collectively in the process of releasing what doesn't serve anymore. Since 5th dimensional awareness is all about love (living on vibrant energy), it is a higher vibration than fear. It does require, as I have said, releasing fear as much as we can. It also requires us claiming for ourselves more love, and that begins with the self. Now some may say that it is a bit self-centered to focus on loving oneself, yet it is there from where all springs. Each one of us is our own self contained love factory! While we may think that it comes from seeking outside of ourselves, it is in fact a result of the frequencies that we are broadcasting that our personal reality that magnetizes the corresponding situations and events to each of us.
Coming off of auto-pilot
For most of us, there isn't much time in a day to love ourselves. We sleep 1/3 of the day, work 1/3 of the day and then have to cram in everything else into the remaining 8 hours. Much of what each of us do in any given day is the result of choices likely made years ago. Some of those choices still serve us, and many do not. It is the one's that do not serve us that is where I believe each of us needs to focus on. It is where we can make new choices that will serve us to improve our self love and well being, making ourselves more transparent to the lower vibrations of fear energy that we might be experiencing.
Each one of us is on a journey that is personal to them. There is no "one size fits all" for a human life. On a soul level each one of us plans for certain themes to be present to us and that is different for each person. Each of us has a different thought process on how we interpret life as we are experiencing it, however each of us is potentially an expert in our own selves if we are willing to stop and take the time to honor ourselves and our experiences and then work to choose what will bring us more love. Making the idea of increasing our own self love is almost a radical concept in today's world. We seem to have a society that is mesmerized by fear for the most part and love just happens to be riding along. In fact, it is love that is the basis for our existence at all, and fear is just a very persistent ancient habit that we are working to release bit by bit. And it is happening.
If you are willing to take a look at what feels like love to you in your own life, you will see many things. It might be a relationship with another, a job that pays the bills and gives you financial freedom, it might be a cause that you are passionate about that you devote your time to pursuing. Conversely you might see things that you don't like and don't serve you as well. Anything that takes you out of feeling happy in the present moment is most likely in this category. Look closely at any behavior you have that is making you unconscious in the present moment. It is there that there is another choice to make if you desire. The ego plays many tricks on us to get us to not focus on love in the present moment, it is up to us to build our awareness of what matters most. It is up to each of us to decide what that is and then choose it for ourselves.
To thine own self be true
There is one person you can never escape from in this life, and that is you. To thine own self be true is a statement that each of us can be blessed by if we take it to heart. This is about listening to the quiet voice inside of ourselves, the one that nudges us to try something new, to take a risk, to take action in any of a number of areas. Most of us, most of the time, fail to listen to this voice. We instead listen to the louder voice of ego consciousness, which operates in fear and love, while the inner voice operates only from love. If you are going to be true to anyone, let it be your own inner self. It is the one that will lead you to all sorts of good things if you take the chance to allow yourself to follow its lead.
The choice presently that most of us make is to allow the mental self to take the lead role in our lives. Or it could be the emotional self as well. The idea I am suggesting is to become more integrated with all of your aspects and allow the smartest one to lead. That quiet inner voice is connected to the smartest aspect of ourselves, so why not give it a try. Encourage yourself to trust in your own inner self. Acknowledge it exists. We are not just human, we are also very much spirit. It is just that we often forget because we live in a culture that often puts spirituality in a box. In these times and those to come, we will each need to tap into our many tools and start using them. The days of "sitting on the fence" are rapidly ending and we will all have to make a choice to commit to what we will support, the truth or the illusion.
Let your heart be the guide
Can you tell yourself what is in your heart that you want to experience right now? The heart is the center of each of us in human form and it is a wise and powerful place. It is not just the most important muscle in the body, it is also the heart chakra, the center of the energetic system of the body. Our hearts have a direct line to our souls, and it is time that we start understanding and developing this awareness. We are going to need it and we are going to benefit from it. It is the "new" way. Really, it is the old way that we have forgotten as a human culture and are now readying ourselves to reclaim. When enough of us do this, it will transform our world culture in ways we can barely imagine. Where do we begin? With ourselves of course! And how? With self love.
Self love of the heart can be expressed in many ways. Here I'll outline a couple. First, attend to your body and your physical self. Find ways to move, to play, to sweat, exercise this muscle. Build its strength and stamina so that you will have the "staying power" to feel strong and healthy. Eat good, fresh, organic food. Limit what you eat that comes out of a box, a can, or a restaurant. Strengthening the body means more oxygen to your cells. Our bodies really need this in this period because they are literally in a major process of change in order to operate in the new energies. This isn't spoken about much at present, however you will start hearing more about the evolution of the body in coming years.
Second is to take some time with your own energetic heart by yourself. It doesn't have to be for very long, perhaps a few minutes during a quiet time of your day. Talk to your heart as a wise being that loves you and supports you completely. Put your hands on your chest if that will help. Ask it to talk to you about what it wants to do, to live. The heart is the seat of compassion and passion for each of us. We have got to find ways to trust it more and act on its wisdom. Doing this more will serve as a center of stability in these times of transformation. In addition, if you have a partner, you can also do this practice with them in regards to your relationship. First and foremost, do it with yourself. Each of us has a unique and positive role to play in our own lives and in the communities we inhabit, but we've got to start going beyond the social norms to create a better experience for ourselves and our world.
I don't know about you, but when I see this word I immediately jump to the idea of relationship with another. What I would like you to consider is instead think about yourself when you hear or read that word. How is your relationship with yourself? Can you be happier? Do you want more fulfillment? Of course you do! It is self love that will get us there. I will say this: No one comes to life with the intention of suffering. Sure, there are moments of difficulty that we all face. Most of the unpleasant and negative things we experience we have brought upon ourselves because we were never taught how to love. Begin where you are. If you are saying that you feel scattered and have difficulty focusing, then work on grounding yourself energetically. Get into your own space. Turn off the electronics or keep them to the bare minimum as an experiment for a week. Begin to identify what is you, and what is not you. Then you will have the basis for claiming yourself and your domain. Be the benevolent queen or king of yourself!
We are now in a time of coming to understand our humanity in a new way. This is called evolution. It is happening, and it is huge. We are so fortunate to be here at this time. As much as I hear myself and others wish they could escape all of the dramas and stresses, I also know that deep inside I want to be here. And in order to be here in the coming years, I am going to step up my "game" of living well by first loving and nurturing myself first, then taking that person out into the world. I invite you to feel if this sounds good to you too. We are all literally living through a quantum shift in consciousness that is unprecedented in our history. Love yourself through this by paying attention to your desires and wants that come from your heart. It is time to put away the old ways of being, the old tools for coping.
Self love as a way of connecting
Loving yourself means little if you are unable to share your love with the world around you. Relationship means first you attend to yourself, then you go out into the world as a complete being that is in integrity with yourself. You are literally emanating a coherent vibration of energy wherever you go. This will attract to you opportunities for connection. They could be for love, for career, for friendship and more. We are designed to connect to one another because when two are more are gathered, an additional energy is created. While this cannot always be seen, it can be felt. I know of no one who could not benefit by finding a new loving connection of whatever type. Does this sound good to you? Then, give some time to yourself to consider self love as a door to your improved living on this planet. Again, start where you are at. You can make a big positive difference just with those already in your life. Believe you have a passion for more - more love from your relationships, and see what you can change to make it so.
Things are changing
Our bodies are changing, our awareness is growing, our planet is changing. All of this is part of the plan of evolution. We each have a responsibility (ability to respond) to ourselves to love more (self-love). The other option is to give into the fear, which many will do. It will not go well for those who will dig their heels in and so no to the changes. I do not expect myself to be perfect in my process, nor should you. I do however want to continue to strengthen my intention to live from love as much as possible because I know that the world is not ending, it is going into great change, it is going into evolution and so are we. Keep your heart as light as you can as you go through this. Have compassion for those that suffer but do not sacrifice yourself or lower your vibration out of sympathy. This is a planet of free will and free choice and sometimes choices need to be played out even if the consequences are not pleasant. I believe that it is our job to be the light houses and hold firm to an inner knowing that love will triumph in each person's heart when the time is right.
If nothing else, just consider my words and sit with all of this. You will know when it is the right time for you to act in your life. We are each moving into a process of becoming more than we were, and there is no single correct way to do this. Stay centered. Value your inner peace and let no one disturb it. Spread love, not fear. Speak your truth to yourself that you are valuable, you are loved, and you are in the right place and the right time in history. If you are ready, look at that relationship with self and turn up the self love. There is nothing to lose that you need, and everything to gain.

Welcome to another edition of 5D times, and our ongoing journey forward. Today we are going to focus on the planet itself, our beloved Earth and the many changes that are occurring. Many would say things are hurtling out of control at a frightening pace. Some even claim that we've passed the point of no return and are heading for a great extinction event. While challenges will be constant in the coming years, it is not something to go into fear about, rather it is an opportunity to become aware of planetary change as a good thing, a necessary thing and to go with the flow of it rather than go into panic.
As I am writing this it was just announced that the "Larsen C" iceberg finally calved off of its ice shelf and has now become the biggest ice cube on the planet, roughly the same size as the state of Delaware or twice the size of London. Very, very big! The Larsen ice shelf has been splitting off in grand fashion for over 15 years now and this is the 3rd major iceberg to come off in that time. Meanwhile, in Greenland the ice sheet there is melting at a rapid pace, pouring millions of tons of fresh water into the ocean. The North Pole as well is warming and the formation of ice is greatly reduced there. The North Pole has no land mass beneath it, while the South Pole is a continent roughly the 75% of the size of South America. Most of the world's ice is located there in thick sheets several km thick.
So we have much melting occurring and sea levels have risen approximately 2.5 inches (6.3cm) in the last 25 years alone. This is due to both the melting ice plus the thermal expansion of water as the sea temperature has risen slightly as well. You can see from this graph that sea levels have been relatively stable over the last 8000 years or so, but have risen over a 100 meters since the last glacial maximum of the most recent ice age.

There is evidence that sea levels have risen and fallen over many thousands of years, sometimes slowly, sometimes very quickly. Here in Texas one can see evidence of ancient shorelines many miles inland and in other places around the world this is also known. If the pace of warming and melting was to continue unabated then life as we have known it would be radically different in 50-75 years time, and that may come to pass. However, I would like to paint a picture of a different scenario that has also been put forth and offer some new ways of looking at this situation we all face in order to generate some new ideas to consider.
Global warming or global cooling?
As most of us know, there has been fierce debate about global warming over the last 20 years. What many don't know is that there was an equally strong debate about global cooling beginning in the 1920's up through the 1970's. None of those scenarios proposed came to be, so people discredited those scientists and thinkers and then the debate switched to global warming. It's been easy to see why, as we have direct evidence of warming across the planet and increased climate instability (flooding, fires, droughts). In fact, 16 of 17 of our warmest years on record have been since the year 2000!
As you can see from this chart there have been 4 major glacial periods over the last 450,000 years. Currently we are reaching a new peak of temperature as we have been in a "mild" period. It has been much hotter than it is now, and it has been much cooler. The question is "Is human influenced behavior adding to the problem or is it just the Earth herself?" To that I would give 2 answers: first, yes by human activity over the past 200 years of burning coal, oil and natural gas we have indeed added significantly to the global CO2 (carbon dioxide) to the atmosphere. Many postulate that we've created a runaway greenhouse effect and now we are doomed to an ever warming planet. As you can see above, the planet knows what it is doing. We have yet to prove definitively that this increase in this one gas is the trigger for calamity. And many would agree that this is far from truth. Second, I assert that the planet is doing this warming trend primarily on its own, and this would occur whether or not there were human intervention. Surely there weren't many humans on the planet 200 to 300,000 years ago, and yet there were these huge climate cycles. So which way is this going to go? Ever hotter for the next century, or a plunge in temperatures at some point in the near future of the next few decades?
Global climate is very hard to predict because we have limited data and not a full explanation of how weather works. There are so many variables that even our best supercomputers cannot fully model it yet. There are other factors as well, primarily the cycles of the Sun. Currently we are entering a period called the Maunder minimum, which is part of an 11 year cycle of decreased activity of the Sun itself. The radiation from the Sun definitely impacts the ocean currents which cycle hot and cold water around the planet. Again, we really don't understand yet the exact processes of how the Sun operates, we know what we know and perhaps there is still more to know? Cooling periods have spontaneously appeared after a volcanic eruption for example. The year 1816 was what the Europeans called the year without a summer. It is suspected to be caused by the eruption of Mt. Tambora in Indonesia in April 1815. It was felt also in N. America. I personally experienced the summer of 1994 in Michigan as one where the temperature barely reached 70F (20C) all season and it was due to the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines spewing sulfur dioxide into the upper atmosphere and lowering the amount of solar radiation reaching the northern USA that year. Now many will argue that if the sun was the culprit then why is the upper atmosphere cooling while the lower atmosphere gets warmer? Perhaps there are radiations from the sun that we have not yet identified, that intimately interact with all of its planets and we just don't have a way to measure it yet. Now lets take a look at how the oceans work briefly:
Here's a general map of global circulation of water, the main temperature regulator on the planet. These powerful currents of water keep the USA and Europe warm. There have been times when this flow has been disrupted for a period, and that alters the climate of large areas of the planet to get cooler, or hotter depending on the area. Since 2005 there have been reports that this circulation pattern has been weakening in the North Atlantic and thereby there could come a time when this current is disrupted, causing a quick decrease in temperatures, hopefully for only a short period. Keep in mind that I come from a position of knowing that the Earth has it's own consciousness, and that it's intent is to hold a higher vibratory field that will allow greater consciousness to be expressed by it's inhabitants, mainly us. It's intent is not to wipe us out, like so many sci-fi fantasy movies like to depict. I will give 2 reasons why we are so transfixed on disaster scenarios. First, as a human species we have an overly strong focus on fear. We simply don't yet trust that the vibratory field of love is what really runs things, even though we might know this intellectually. We need to feel this in our hearts, in our bellies as we ground this awareness into our beings. Second, many if not all of us hold in our energy fields, cellular memories of great calamities in times gone past, not just Atlantis and Lemuria but all through history there have been times when there was war, famine, pestilence, etc. The most recent major global calamity besides the world wars was the 1918-19 influenza epidemic which killed an estimated 100 million people and in present time we have a hard time remembering consciously these things, however the cells of our bodies always remember.
The metaphysical community speaks
Among well known U.S. based teachers and channels there has been much to say about upcoming Earth challenges. For example, in May 2017, the Group, channeled by Steve Rother, predicted a major ice age within 50 years, probably wiping out most of humanity. They indicated that it wasn't supposed to happen for another 1000 years but events had pushed it forward. If that is the case, we're all in trouble.
I refuse to accept a doomsday scenario is what is in store. For many years I've listened to and contemplated the channels of Kryon via Lee Carroll and found them to be remarkably accurate.(www.kryon.com). At first it took me several years to even accept channeling as a real thing and several more to learn to appreciate how to listen to the information given and interpret it. What this being has recently said continues to support assertions it made nearly a decade ago, that we are heading into a period of a mini ice age that will last several decades. It is always preceded by a warming period. This cycle, Kryon says, is part of a refreshing of the ocean waters to support life. He gave an excellent analogy and anyone who has cared for fish in tanks knows this. Despite all of the filters and water treatments that one can apply, eventually the old water has to be disposed of so that new water to support the fish can be poured back into the tank. This is exactly what is happening with global warming and melting ice. "New water" from the ice is entering the water circulatory system of the planet, providing oxygenation, nutrients and minerals to the water. The alchemy of water is that it moves in great cycles- in the ice, and filtered through the earth in great aquifers, getting purified and restored.
Presently, the first half of this mini-cycle is underway. We've had massive warming for 20+ years and this will probably continue for another 10 more years. Then, after that we will likely see a significant cooling period, akin to the one experienced in Europe in the early 1800's.(Look up mini ice age) There are also well documented short cooling periods of several decades occurring in the early 1600's and around the 14th century as well. The Roanoke colony of Virginia in the late 1580's was abandoned after such a period when it wasn't feasible to farm crops to survive due to the worst 3 year drought in 800 years. This was confirmed by tree ring records. We also have records of droughts cycling several times a century in different parts of North America as well as other areas.
Now in summary Kryon says that indeed we are in this cycle and it will switch from hot to cold. This could mean that it is triggered by volcanic eruptions or a shift of ocean currents as I have previously mentioned. Or it could come in a completely unknown way. I am betting that this is going to occur within the next few decades and it will have implications world-wide. My guess is that there have never been this many humans on the planet when this cycle happens, so it is going to have much greater impacts because the population is so much larger.
Our human bodies are designed to operate well with temperatures of 30-90F (0-32C). We can still function in a reduced manner beyond those temperatures, but beyond a certain limit life becomes unbearable. Similarly, our energy production systems also cannot function well in extreme environments. In times of extreme climate change our electric grid system (used across the world) is subject to failure. There have been many incidences of brown-outs and black-outs in the USA and abroad. The most recent blackout of the Northeast USA and Midwest occurred in 2003 and wasn't even climate related. It resulted in nearly 60 million people losing power on during a warm summer week for up to 3 days. A significant climate shift to either hotter or cooler could disable large portions of electricity generation in affected areas. As I witnessed firsthand in 2003, what we take for granted can be gone in a moment. Thankfully that situation was easy because it was short lived and during the summer, but a disruption like that in the winter would have killed many people.
It is going to be impossible for most to get off of the grid should it fail for a period of time, the question is can people survive in cities for weeks without power if they have not found a way to generate there own? Probably not. So in response here in the USA we have the "Prepper" movement. Thankfully we also have a wide array of ways to generate power without having fuel delivered, such as solar and wind. Here is a graph to show where we are currently in the United States:
If any of the systems that delivered fuel to power generation plants for the electric grid were to be impeded, you could see that there would be little way around replacing lost generating capacity. While renewable energy options are increasing in popularity, we are still mired in a fossil-fuel paradigm. Nuclear isn't an answer either. The average age of our nuclear plants is 36 years and their operating certificates only run for 40 years. This means that extensions will have to be given to maintain that 9% share they account for, and in 20 more years we will have plants that are two decades older. More than likely some of them will have to be decommissioned. Until we find a new way of generating power we will have to continue to evolve the systems we have to be able to function adequately during a major climate shift.
I have shown you a lot of facts to give you an idea of the scope and complexity of climate change and how potentially vulnerable we might be to having disruptions in energy generation. What I am saying is that climate change is going to tax the systems we have in place to generate our power, either if it keeps getting hotter, or we go into a cooling phase. While this won't affect the entirety of people, it is likely to affect hundreds of millions directly and the rest of us indirectly. The shift that the planet is undergoing will not be easy or convenient for many of us. I am issuing this information because there still is plenty of time to consider options for living choices in the upcoming years.
It seems to me that most of us are aware that we are not in harmony with the planet. With what can be seen it's hard to stomach the rate of negative news of what is happening. There are bright spots, the push towards renewable energy that doesn't put more carbon into the atmosphere, the Paris climate accords, people planting millions of trees around the world are a number that come to mind. I feel that people in general want to have a healthy, clean and safe environment for themselves and their children, they just don't know exactly how to get there. The time of facing up to what is unfolding whether we like it or not is now.
What to expect
We will continue to have more pronounced swings in weather that we have been experiencing already. Already this summer here in Austin Texas we have reached our average number of 100F days (13) and we still have two months of summer to go. The hot seasons will generally be hotter for 5-10 more years. The oceans will continue to adjust, there may be more storms that will cause more regular flooding to many coastal cities. At first it will seem to be an irritation, but after a while it will likely intensify in number, so that events that happened only every 100 years may be happening annually. People will have time to adjust and make decisions of how they will approach things.
As things become more apparent, there will be a massive push from society at all levels to come to some new decisions about what is occurring. We will redirect a lot of our energy and efforts to creating solutions on how to adapt to this "new normal". There will be voluntary and involuntary migrations of people to locations less affected by the changes. This will likely look like people moving inland away from flood prone areas, as well as people moving away from areas where the temperatures are too high or too cold. If the mini ice age theory comes to pass, it will still be livable, even with years of relatively mild temperatures, and there will likely be much shorter summer seasons in areas north of 35-40 degrees of latitude. Pay attention, and trust your intuition about what might be right for you. Keep in mind that the scenario I am laying out begins in 10-15 years. If all goes well, we may be at a point of climate re-stabilization in 30-40 years, so this is something that I hope the younger generations will take to heart. We only need to awaken a small percentage of humanity to create a massive positive transition on this planet. We are that powerful. We are not victims of climate change, we are participants in a vast re-ordering of how life will be expressed on this planet in the coming century. It is not the end, it is the beginning of something new and heretofore unknown by us in modern times.
Rest easy. Live life lightly as you go about your business. The 5th dimension is bringing wholesale change to the planet and to humanity. Trust that you will be in the right places at the right times and you will. Resist the temptation to go into fear or anxiety about change. We all knew at some higher level that being on the planet at this time was going to be very profound. Empower yourself through your own intuition, research and knowing. It is an exciting time to be a creator on the planet right now!
Monday, June 26, 2017
Would you say that your feeling of your life is one of peace? Radiant joy? Bliss? Or is it more like routine? Take a look at your feeling state right now. Are you in want of something or someone to manifest into your life? Or, perhaps you are completely fulfilled? In that case, you can skip this article. But if you are in touch with a need or a want for yourself and you have been frustrated as to why it is not appearing in your life, then I invite you to read on.
We are all master creators
We are all master creators of our individual lives. There is nothing within anyone's life, that wasn't invited there. It's just that most of our choices have become invisible to us because we can often "go unconscious" of them in the present moment. As I like to say, there are no victims here, only conscious or unconscious manifestations. We are each very unique in how we approach life, and what we are drawn towards and that is a good thing as it keeps things interesting, eh?
We live in a system and a culture that has been created from the past. Past energies, past people dominate the bulk of what is seen by us all. However, now that the vibratory rate of the planet has increased into what I term the 5th dimension, we cannot rely on the past as our point of reference as we each go forward. Hence I introduce the wide, wonderful world of the unknown. Now the first reaction most of us have is that the unknown is a place of fear, and is to be avoided. After all, going there might cause us harm? Well, I would say that in reality, reaching for the unknown and claiming it in our own individual way will actually bring forth more for us in a very positive way! The unknown is where abundance lies, where love is, where what we want for our lives exists. To get there though, we are going to have to take some risks. While that may seem fearful, it may be a greater risk to remain only in a known routine or lifestyle that has kept us feeling safe, (or not), or at least somewhat predictable. If we are to be in the state of being master creators then we must be willing to go beyond the known world that we have made for ourselves.
The known world- observations
For many years I have developed a practice and an intent of seeing beyond appearances. I've also been a fan of many others who have gone this path and written or spoken about it, and there are many. The work of Alan Watts and Terrence McKenna as well as the novels of Hank Wesselman and the novels of Carlos Casteneda come to mind. Each worked to uncover the deeper currents that the human condition rides upon, and they have challenged the assumptions of life that we take for granted.
Our culture is built primarily upon commerce. Everyone to one degree or another is involved in the production and consumption of goods and services. Some of these serve us very well, and others not so well. Consumption has given rise to barter which over time has evolved into a monetary system. People work so they can receive money for their efforts, which is exchanged with others for these goods and services. Over time some have become proficient at this and claim anything from a "nest egg" of savings all the way to vast fortunes. And many still live day to day or week to week without any financial safety net. This has been the rise of capitalism which has exploded over the last 200 years. Now capitalism is undergoing change because of the rise of the Internet and traditional ways of doing things are being usurped by many individuals and companies who have found new ways of creating value.
In order to exist in this culture, one has to find a way of creating enough so that they may acquire the needs of humans- food, clothing, shelter and additional funds for non-essential things such as hobbies or passions. Within the vibrations of the currently unfolding paradigm, less is more. That is, less stuff, more love. Love being: living on vibrant energy. To live on vibrant energy one must go beyond the needs of the small self/ego and go within to establish a connection to that higher part of self which knows each of us intimately. It requires going into the unknown to establish a connection and then acting upon it.
Now we are at a period in the history of humanity where large numbers of people have all of their needs met and have a prolific abundance. Since their needs are more than met, this group of people is for the first time in history now able to stand in the present moment and ask themselves "Is this all there is?" Shall I exist to create more material goods- a bigger home, a new vehicle, fine clothes, etc? Or is there something deeper to attain? Well of course, yes there is! And that I would say is one's evolution into greater consciousness of why you are experiencing this life. I make this assertion not from mere belief, instead it comes from a deep knowing inside of myself.
While knowing that greater states of knowledge and greater states of love can be available now to a large portion of humanity, we still live in a global culture of consumption and distraction. Why? It is because many of us fall prey to the small self and forget about the possibility of looking at life from a spiritual perspective on a day to day basis. Those who do are generally lumped into a category of excessive religiousness. To most, commerce seems more reliable- I'll get what I need/want and you others just leave me to this. Religions are not going away anytime soon, however it is the believer's relationships to their respective faiths that has undergone massive change over the last century. People find comfort in religious doctrines and practices because they codify the unknown into a set of known beliefs that can be followed. The issue now is that clashes between belief systems has erupted into much conflict, strife and war as we have seen in this period. Countless people have died for beliefs over the ages, beliefs that aren't even remembered anymore. What I am saying is that we have continued to live in a culture based on a known past that is mostly filled with faulty beliefs that bring pain and suffering. The present and our potential future as a species cannot continue to be built upon a foundation of fear and suffering that has been the hallmark of the past thousand years. In order to move out of this cycle, each of us will have to look not backwards into our known history, either personal or collective, but into ourselves to that unknown portion of our being that is wanting to come forward and be expressed through each of us in unique ways. This is the shift, this is the ascension, and it happens within each one of us.
Each of us holds within ourselves latent talents and abilities outside of those that we know and use regularly. These are aspects that we can activate if and when we here the quiet call within and become curious of it and take action to move into action. You might say that we are "hard-wired" to be creators on this plane. We can re-create the same day a thousand times, or we can operate in unfettered possibility for each day. Some of us love planning things, while others will ride on the emotional surges of new exploration each day. And there are many more in between these to states. Each of us, while always part of the indivisible whole, maintains a distinct expression of body and personality throughout our lifetimes. Yet, at some point we will relinquish it to return to a state beyond the body.
Do you know all you can about the potentials of the body you inhabit? Do you know that it operates dutifully to promote the well-being of your life? It transfers your food into energy to power itself, and it is constantly repairing and healing itself. It is the temple that your energetic body resides in partnership with while you are here. It also contains many more potentials for activation that go far beyond where we have been as a species. It is in the process of considerable change at present, in order to be able to express the greater role that your higher self/divine self wishes to manifest as. The body is one important example of how little we actually know about the self expressing in human form. We just assume that it must be so as it now is, does it?
If there is frustration or discontent present within us, it is the indicator that the unknown is knocking at our door. We can choose to ignore it, and wait until another opportunity shows itself, or we can address its invitation to pay attention. Nothing is as static as it may appear to be, and our consciousness is asking for greater expression in our lives and affairs. We are at the beginnings of releasing that which no longer serves us in order to make room for that which does serve. It is up to each of us to make these choices in our own ways. That is the blessing of being first, an individual and second, having free will. All choices are honored, and all choices will serve you in some way on your journey.
Moving into the unknown doesn't mean that we have to give up all we have, no need to leave the world behind and climb up a mountain to live. It does mean being ready and willing to receive once it comes upon us. The word "Yes" is very important here because you are giving yourself permission to go beyond the known even if the fear of doing this is high. Remember the acronym for fear? Focus the energy to alter the result. Energy is there, now it is just a matter of going beyond the initial feeling and doing it anyway. Most of us have already done this many times in our lives, it is a matter of continuing to do it all of our lives.
We have collectively asked for this
If you reading this, then you are an equal partner with the rest of us in welcoming the unknown to this level of reality. Each of us has chosen to be here during momentous times of change. No one can deny this from what we have seen and experienced over even the last 10 years. And it will continue because we are here to assist and participate in a world that is moving up in vibration, moving up in expression. We have wanted this because we are tired of the old games of war and separation and fear that have sought to ensnare us indefinitely. We are far more than that, aren't we?
There is no doubt that we are living in trying times. Maintaining balance in the midst of all of this change is paramount for each of us. This is why I stress the importance of simplifying one's life as much as possible, releasing what doesn't serve you moving into greater states of love. We are each the source of our love, and we are also at choice in defining what feels like love to us and what does not and making decisions about that. Being human is not a static state, there is always change occurring and not all of it is conscious to us right now, yet more is available to become conscious to us if we take the risk to choose it and take responsibility for holding it in our lives. This is growth, this is conscious change.
Going back to my statement that we are all master creators I want to make you aware of how true this is and how far we have been led astray from this fact. And I want to point out how the present times are so very ripe for up shifting one's paradigm into something much better-more peace, more love, true prosperity. The world we have experienced all of our lives is a construct based on what has come before. The institutions, the roads, the governments, the religions- all of this was created in an old energy that for the most part does not apply going forward. Yes, there are elements of each of these I just mentioned that do serve us, if they promote love and well being of those that they serve. If they do not, then they no longer are in congruence of the world that is emerging.
This world, what we see around us, has been constructed from a 3rd dimensional paradigm meaning that it was created in a time where there was always a strong interplay between fear and love. You might say "I cannot see that things have changed at all, we still live in this don't we?". And in a sense you would be correct- we do see these things still. However, quietly being birthed all around us is the beginnings of a new world, a new way of being that has been sitting within each of our hearts, waiting to be born into view. It is rarely reported, because the structures of our media are mostly still under the thumb of old energies designed to keep us fearful, to keep us checked and afraid of the unknown potential we all possess. For if that became known by enough people, life as we've known it would immediately being to release itself from its own self-made prison.
As we are each now taking back our own power of choice, which we unwittingly have given away to these structures that we created over many hundreds and thousands of years, we are saying "I know who I am in truth". "I am a sovereign being" becomes our clarion call. There is never a right of one sovereign being to violate the free will of another. Let's look at an example of how this is manifesting. In the USA there has been the issue of those in power to say "We are leaving the Paris climate accords"- a joint statement by almost every nation on Earth acknowledging that measures must be taken to come into balance with the planet we all share. Now, leaders in business and some state governments have replied "We are going to abide by these measures in defiance of our elected national leaders". This is a clear example of people operating from choice based on their beliefs, and perhaps their knowing, and saying to those who hold the positions of authority: " We will not abide by your choices because it is not our truth." Regardless of your stance on this issue, it is clear to me that there are the beginnings of people as individuals and groups that are going to be challenging the status quo. Expect a lot more of this as each successive generation of people being born on this planet are more and more attuned, pre-wired you might say, to operating in a higher frequency reality. They won't take the status quo at face value like most of us have had to do, they will instead follow the call of their hearts because they will remember where they came from. Those who are in positions of power now for the most part were born in an energetic frequency which no longer serves. Fight as they may, through attrition they will yield to a new story - as yet unknown, but about to become known as it births itself through each of us. There is a plan, there is certainty that this is occurring and it WILL happen. This is no false promise, in other words, the game of being human has shifted to a higher octave and as we recognize it and incorporate it into our lives we each will be blessed by our own actions.
The questioning of self-worth
Are we really ready to live in a world that has peace as its basis? Are we really worthy to live in joy ourselves? What is joy? J.O.Y. = Journeying onward yielding to what you truly want. Do you want mayhem, strife, suffering, war, disharmony? I think not! Isn't it your nature to want love, harmonious relations, beauty, creativity, prosperity? Can you accept that someone does not have to lose for you to win? If so, then you are well on your way. For as far back as we can know, within our families and our shared history we have been told the stories of lack, limitation, suffering, the few ruling over the many. THAT IS PAST. It no longer serves us individually or collectively to keep re-creating these things. We are each having to release the stories of limitation, in order to begin to believe that we are worthy of claiming for ourselves our true inheritance. What is that? It is the claiming of the true self into being through each of ourselves, and it is the announcing of the Kingdom made manifest on this plane. Release the notion that it will be dropped down from heaven upon us at the appointed time! It in fact is born thru us bit by bit, as we lay claim to it. If you can imagine that 95% of who you and I truly are is unknown to you at this moment, would you venture to believe that you are a magnificent being of great love and great power? Take a moment now to get quiet and say hello to that self and invite it to be made known to you here and now. No matter what trying circumstance you may find yourself in, know that you are a living breathing piece of All that Is and you are dearly loved, now let yourself in on the secret!
This is why less is more. If you are so busy with your self-created responsibilities are duties to maintain a large material life, you may not have the time to consider these things for yourself. If your worth is held in your possessions, your status, your title, know that one day you will have to give up all of these things, then who will you be? Think of that being you are- naked to the truth of itself, and give credence to the possibility that that is the true self. There is nothing inherently wrong with the things of this world, it is in the spirit of how you hold them and express them which determines how you serve. It is your choice.
Suggestions for beginning to claim the unknown into your life
First, know for certain that the unknown wants you to know it, so it can bless you with many gifts. Know that you and I have a whole host of unconscious traps that will say "Don't do it". This is just the small self/ego trying to keep you in a box, don't fall for it! This isn't an "all or nothing" proposition. We will be cultivating at first a portion of our awareness, a portion of our day to this. As we become more proficient we will begin to trust our own power, our own sovereignty and it will grow. We are planting seeds and nurturing delicate shoots of awareness here.
1) You really know what's best for you, so start by saying this: "I know what's best for me and I take action to claim it and bring it into my life."
2) Take a few minutes sometime in your day to get quiet and listen within. The voice of spirit within us is very quiet at first, almost a whisper. You have to tune down your normal waking awareness in order to hear it. At first it may be stillness, then images, then a word. At times it will come to you while you're in the shower, driving or doing a task that doesn't require a lot of concentration. As you here what comes, consider it and then take action upon it.
3) Become aware of what a servant you are to your own routines. Brush your teeth with the opposite hand. Take a different route to work and notice what you see. Skip your normal mealtime and go for a walk in a park instead. Any of these are ways to challenge the routines you have and bring into question if they are serving you well or not. You are in charge of what you allow to be present to you. Remember, you are a sovereign being.
4) Notice when you are in anger or fear. At these times, take a breath before you react. Ask yourself "How is this feeling serving me?" It's calling us to attention. Do you wish to be right, or do you wish to be happy? You can't have it both ways. Being right serves the small self, who is always trying to justify its existence, its small world as being the most important. Being happy honors the higher self/divine self that we are working to claim more fully into our daily lives. Make your choice, you are the one that gets to live with it!
5) Be curious. The other day I was watching a show about what it means to live well once you are in your 90's. It featured Carl Reiner, a great comedian and writer for the past 60+ years. He is curious about what he can create, and is still writing every day, being active physically and has lots of close and dear friend connections. All are recipes for wanting to stick around on the planet. Always think in terms of what you can bring in that's new for you. Imagine having a new friend who becomes very dear to you. If you can imagine it, then the possibility exists that you can manifest it. Value real interactions with people, not just the shadow of connection that exists in the electronic world. So much more can be communicated through the tone of a voice, the energy in the eyes, the presence of another than can be given in a 140 characters tweet or a Snapchat or a Facebook post. Go live with your life, don't be pre-recorded!
6) Be like Lot. Remember the old testament story of Lot and his wife fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah before it was going to be destroyed? The angels came to him and told him and his wife to flee before it's destruction and to not look back. He did and was saved. She couldn't help but gawk at it and was turned into a pillar of salt. Here's my take on it: We're in a period of transition and some things we've known such as institutions and ways of being are going to fall away because they can't continue in their current form. Resist the temptation to gawk at this process, lest your vibration be lowered into anger, righteousness, contempt, disgust or whatever. Have your intent to keep your energy clear and high as much as possible. If you do this you'll literally become invisible to any negative effects of this drama that is playing out. You'll be in the right place to avoid any negative events without even having to think of it, because you're trusting your higher self to guide you. This is a good step towards claiming yourself in a higher way, the fear will be dramatically lessened and you'll be here when the proverbial dust settles.
7) Imagine. Take an hour of your free time and instead of doing something mindless, ask yourself if you've done enough imagining lately. Do this with yourself, or with your partner. Create some new ideas about what you can do to get out of your routine. While there's plenty that is new to someone under the age of 40, once beyond that time we've got to put more effort into stretching ourselves. Imagining has taken me all over the world, and provided me with the means to as well, no go fund me account needed for me! We only at present receive a fraction of the wealth of love, knowledge and experiences that are set aside for each of us. We have to imagine it if we are to receive it. Do this with loving expectation and you will get results!
These are just some ideas to get you started. There is more, much much more that will come. I haven't even touched on tools and techniques for bringing more of your multi-dimensional awareness online. There's so much- enhanced intuition, psychic abilities such as precognition and reading into the energies around you, activating the higher chakras in the head to gain clearer reception of what is coming and more. Some of you are already doing this, keep working to expand your abilities and be available to speak about them if someone earnestly asks you. Most aren't even aware that these things exist or are possible, they are unknown to them. You are on the leading edge, be in the grace of it all as it continues to unfold. Dare to be who you truly are, a being of great love and power. Keep stretching and keep happy. All is well and you are doing fantastic.
Until next time,
Monday, May 8, 2017
Welcome back to another edition on our shared journey into the emergence of the new paradigm on our beloved planet Earth. Before we begin, let's take a few deep, cleansing breaths together. Got that? Great! Now let's proceed.
I have posted a picture of the planet at the top of this post to show the entire world, to illustrate that we are all in this together. What is occurring is not an issue for any one segment of the planet, it is for all. It is a time of great change, and these changes are leading to a transformation to the next steps of evolution of human consciousness on this planet. It cannot be denied, it cannot be stopped, it is affecting us all each in very personal ways. It is about the rising frequencies of energy that have been bathing us for some years now, and will continue for many more years until the transition is complete. I term it "stepping into 5th dimensional consciousness", and it is a process, not an on/off switch. While it appears we in many ways are stepping back, there is only one direction, and that is forward.
The energies now move forward
We recently completed the latest Mercury retrograde period, as well as Venus retrograde. Both are now proceeding forward. This will begin lightening the energies of the last month considerably. We are however still in a Saturn retrograde until the end of the year, and that is the planet of "hard work, hard lessons", so expect that anything that isn't Truth or is not in the vibrations of Love will be subject to not holding together in coherence for much longer. Why? Simply, the escalation in frequencies doesn't support old ways of doing things, doesn't support low vibration creations based in fear.
Second, it is likely that within the next week or two another unseen, unmeasurable wave of energies will once again bathe the planet. This will add to the increase in activity by people as they feel the need to create and move with this flow that is arriving. Change is constant in these times. What is happening is that the base energies of the planet are now totally open to creation in many new ways, but only within the higher vibrations of the 5th dimension. That which has been created in the past cannot be created again. This is a key point, despite what we may be witnessing in our lives that looks like reversal, it is unsustainable because it does not align to the energetic frequencies that now exist. Expect anything created like this to be dispatched to the waste can of history within a few years at most. I say these things because I know that a lot of events that have unfolded in the last year across the planet look like a wholesale rejection of moving forward. We are now supported to move into greater states of knowledge and greater states of love, something I hope you agree is needed and desired by the vast majority.
Time and space are being affected
I am now going to talk about time and space in a different way, one that has everything to do with the evolution of humans on this planet. We are all subject to time and to space in one way or another. It is part of the experience of being embodied, however we are in actuality multi-dimensional beings who have agreed to have an experience of life within a body. This body is constantly changing, and it is now adapting to living on a planet that is carrying a higher frequency of energy than ever before in known history. And it will go higher still in coming years. Each successive generation of humans will become more suited to this new way of being, while those of older years will have a more challenging time remaining flexible enough to adapt, though it is still possible.
Reality as it truly is, is beyond the reasoning mind. We have made ourselves captive to this one aspect of ourselves for literally thousands of years, and now it is coming to an end and that is a good thing. It is as absurd as thinking that we can run our lives based only on computer programs alone. How dull that would be!
There are two factors that are now merging into harmony with one another with respect to time and space: The Lemurian energies and the Atlantean energies. The next phase of humanity is going to be the merging and blossoming of these two streams of energy into our next version of humanity. What I speak of will come to pass over many generations, and we are now building the foundations for what will come, that is why this moment in time is so important, and you are so important just because you are here. The Lemurian energy focuses on time. (T.I.M.E.) is the temporal integration of mankind and energy. The question that Lemurian energies ask is "For how long shall this be?, What will be the impact of time?". The Atlantean energy focuses on space. (S.P.A.C.E.) Strength, power and actions creating energy. Thus the pull of this part of humanity is towards what will go in the space that is created. Here in this present moment that is what is happening across the planet. This does not mean that there are only people in one camp or another, while that may be the case for some, in my understanding we are mostly a blend of these streams of energy. If for example, you are asking yourself about what next you are going to create in your life and are struggling with it, then you are struggling with that Atlantean aspect of yourself.
There are degrees of both of these energies: from "out of control", to "old way", to "new way", to "enlightened". We are each working in our own ways towards evolution, and evolution begins with consciousness and then is followed into physical reality. It really is a time of great opportunity to accept who you are in the present moment, no matter how you judge yourself, and then say to yourself "I want more". More what? More love, more knowledge. It is that simply stated, it is the details that often frustrate us! Some say that the Earth is a not a school, it is a place of experiencing. I would not disagree with that, however learning occurs nonetheless AND evolution is the core premise of being human.
Trump the old Atlantean
Here for the first time ever in print, I am "outing" our President Trump as an "old Atlantean". Here we see a man who is obsessed with being seen. His whole life is about being the one who decides what will fill the spaces- a very Atlantean tendency! He has filled the city of New York and beyond with his buildings, he has filled the tabloids with stories about him, as well as TV, and now he is the President because he truly believed that he alone knows what to do. And he will continue in this way because he is almost completely focused on space, and not the effects over time. In my opinion his unbalanced actions and creations will lead the USA and much of the world into a period of great change. It most certainly will not be pleasant, however on some level it is needed. As tempting as it is, do not blame him. It really does not matter who is President or who sits in the seats of power across the world, change is coming and the status quo that has existed for generations is on the verge of major upheaval. The old energies of Atlantis and Lemuria are coming into present awareness to be released because they no longer serve. It is time to move into the "new" or "enlightened" arenas, and leave behind what has been.
What about the Lemurians?
Besides holding the intent for the temporal integration of humankind and energies, the Lemurian side of our human equation also holds many gifts and a rich history in our DNA of an age long past. It is not important to know the exact history of this epoch, other than it was. Lemuria's theme is "Love is all" and those who value love and its varied forms of expression are going to be emerging to show us new ways of being in coming years. Lemurian energy is about expression, flow and grace. It is tied closely with one's heart and if you are hearing more loudly the call of your heart, know that it is this aspect of you which is seeking attention and expression.
The present moment is crucial
Connecting with our higher vibrational aspects is all about being in the present moment, breathing, feeling and thinking. Now, more than ever, the present moment is more available to people to create within. As we continue to move forward, there will be alterations in our perceptions of time that will occur to assist us to integrate into a higher way of expressing. Many are already experiencing this, however the mass consciousness and media aren't generally aware of it. What people are aware of is a feeling of continual "speeding up" of time and greater difficulty in being able to do everything that is needed to be done.
It is important to take time for yourself to take a look at your life and make priorities for what you truly want to do/have/experience for yourself, versus what is occurring. Often we make ourselves "go unconscious" in the present moment through routines and distractions. Our culture is one of distraction, with hundreds of entertainment programs, dozens of social media outlets, etc that beckon us. Since the advent of smart phones you can go nearly anywhere in the world and see people staring at their phones in public. Some of it is helpful and convenient, however the vast majority of this time is spent on distraction, and results in going unconscious in the present moment. This is the opposite of what is needed right now: to pay attention to your own self at a deeper level.
Change is on the horizon
While it appears that life is continuing on as it always has, we sit on the cusp of changes and events that will cause us to reconsider our lives. The Earth, Gaia as I like to call her, is a partner in all of this. Gaia is in pause, waiting for us as a collective of humanity to come to a choice on how we wish to proceed. Once that point is established, then events will begin to unfold to honor that choice. Gaia has already claimed the energies of the 5th dimension, now it is up to each of us to align for ourselves as to what will be our choices going forward. All choices are honored, and this is not about some sort of judgment day. It is about transformation, it is about evolution of consciousness in form. We are each in our own way working to advance what it means to be human, and then get to live in that expansion with great joy. I have written previously that these changes are not based on our known past. They are coming from what I would term a quantum field of potentials. It is about claiming our own potential within ourselves and then expressing it into our lives, and feeling that power of our personal connection to the creator within. It is not about being rescued by a Rapture, or enlightened aliens coming to save us or anything "outside" of ourselves. It is about getting our priorities aligned to Truth in its most profoundly pure form.
Things to consider going forward
1) Simplify, simplify. Less is more in the higher vibrations. Less "stuff", more love. More love of self, more love for others. Journey lightly whenever possible.
2) Everything you are experiencing, you created through your allowing. Yes, you are that powerful. Whether it is abundance or lack, you created it. This can be not only in material things, also it is relationships, health and anything else. If it doesn't feel good, or is not serving you, why are you continuing to keep it around? Being honest with oneself is a great act of love!
3) Stop worrying about ascension! This is just the ego trying to get a grasp of something it cannot. You are here, on a planet that has moved to a higher frequency. You are doing what you need to by just living and breathing here and now. Focus on what really matters to you in your daily life: acting on your passions will guide you to the perfect circumstances for you in each moment. No one will do this exactly the same. Be harmless in your pursuit of your truth.
4) No one knows the truth of your heart but you, unless you are living it. We are overdue for a big backlash from conformity on this planet, and that is a good thing. It will create many more opportunities for future generations. Listen to your heart and start acting on its urges for you. We have all been using our minds to run things far too long, and listening to the ego's story as if it was all there is. Remember yourself as a timeless spiritual being who agreed to come into a body. Honor the body as best you can keeping in mind that a lifetime is not so long.
5) Life is a do-it-yourself project. Yes, we all have assistance in many forms, but it is still up to you and your personal choices how it will unfold. This applies for adults of any age. Sometimes some healing is required before we can change. Seek what you need most and trust that it will come to you. We live in a benevolent Universe, the illusion is that it is not. There is no separation of any of us from Source/G-d/Heaven/whatever you prefer to call it.
To come to a conclusion with this today is to let you know that all is well, forward momentum will bring many new things to us, and by trusting ourselves and accessing and claiming our own inner power we will be able to adjust and "keep up" with the changes that are occurring. Live by your own truth of that wise inner being always with you and things will become easier. Practice being a bit more conscious for 10 minutes a day and you will find you have planted seeds for yourself that will yield more than you need, in all ways.
I thank my own guides and teachers for their assistance as always with what I write, and I hope that you find something here that will benefit you. May you have much happiness and love on your journey until we connect again.

There is no doubt that we are living in times of great transition. Everything is changing, socially, politically, in the environmentally and energetically. In order to maintain our sense of stability during these times we are going to have to go deeper within ourselves to get the support and assistance we will be needing. Let me illustrate. I received the title to this article while brushing my teeth. Why is that important? It was in that moment I relaxed my thinking mind and then the idea appeared in my mind without me consciously trying. It's that type of connection that we all possess and can and do use. It is that intuitive sense that we can cultivate in order to assist ourselves to answer some of the big questions we may have for ourselves: "What is my purpose?" and "Why am I here?" I am going to offer you some of my thoughts and insights with the hope that they will assist you in moving your life forward in a way that pleases you. I believe that the more happy and engaged people we have on this planet, the better life will be for us all, wouldn't you agree?
There is no one alive who did not agree to come into a body and exist here, in this time and space. Apparently a lot of beings have thought this to be a good idea, given that the population of the planet has doubled to over 7 billion persons in the last 50 years. No one is forced to come to Earth, as there are many places and ways for a soul to develop. While these aren't usually in our awareness while we are here, they nonetheless do exist. For the purpose of this discussion we will focus on the fact that we are here, in a body, existing in early 21st century planet Earth.
One of the first things I heard from a non-physical guide was that we come to the planet for "learning and fun". I also believe that in the process of learning and fun we are also moving further on our paths of evolution. Evolution of what? Evolution of our awareness of who and what we really are. No there's no doubt that we learn things while we go through life. We learn to not touch a hot stove, or not drive recklessly for example. We become more aware of what is truth and what is a lie by experiencing the energies and consequences of both. Some of our learning is enjoyable, and some of it is quite painful, yet it all serves us. We each grow and develop a way of being that suits our individual expression and mission for ourselves. We make mistakes, that is unavoidable. We also experience successes. The life of being human is a rich tapestry of experiences because we have a complex interaction of distinct physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves all involved in our lives. These aspects are also interacting with our Higher Self/Divine Self aspect which is coming more to the forefront of all of our lives as the vibratory rate on Earth continues to climb. This vibratory increase is ushering in an enhanced awareness of higher consciousness- higher purpose, and higher expression of our spirit while in form. Just as people a thousand years ago didn't act the way that we do now, of course in a thousand years hence humans will be acting from an even greater expression than we do today. The opportunity of life is to experience moving ourselves into greater states of knowledge and greater states of love.
There is a distinction between one's purpose and one's goal that I want to introduce you to. It was recently brought to my attention and it merits consideration because it is felt by us all. Over the last decade or two there has been an increasing feeling by many to "find their purpose". This is a call that many are hearing that is coming from their soul energy via the strengthening connection we are claiming to our higher selves. We are beginning to listen and this is a good thing. Many are seeing and experiencing that the paradigm of life that has been presented up to this point is no longer working for them. The rate of change that is occurring is creating many stresses upon people and nations to find new ways of creating, and the planet supports those that are in the higher vibration of present times. One's purpose, in essence, is the activation of one's specific gifts and intents from the "soul-side" of existence into manifestation in our human lives. It is bringing more of the energy of who we truly are, into action in our bodies and in present time. This seems straight forward and simple, correct? Well then, why is it so difficult for most of us, most of the time? It is because of the present human condition, which brings in the concept of "goals".
One's goal and purpose do not automatically correspond in a life. I suppose that is part of the reason why we experience many lifetimes. We may study an issue through different perspectives of many different lifetimes because that is most helpful to us. This is a question not easily answered from this side of the veil as we have all agreed to experience life and put the "blinders on" from our remembrance of our true state so that we can immerse ourselves in "being human". One's goal or goals in life may often be at odds with our purpose, because the goal comes from the human side of our existence and is shaped by what we experience as we go through our lives. My belief is that pursuing our life purpose will lead to more enrichment and fulfillment than if we decide to only meet our human goals, however this means we are each going to have to take some risks.
In general we pursue our goals in order to feel powerful, accepted, admired and loved because of what we have accomplished or what we possess. Such things could be a career of perceived high status and/or income, an attractive partner , a beautiful place to live, etc. Culture says that these things will lead to acceptance and fulfillment. Yet, there are many who have achieved some or all of these and are still unhappy and even miserable. (Some are quite happy too.) I believe that it depends on the intent and the maturity of the person who created it. We have created a world where millions are racing towards these ideals and completely pushing aside their inner calling because it does not speak to them as loudly as what they see before them. The curious thing right now is we are at a point where change is going to occur on a global scale because the entire paradigm has shifted to a new level of possibility, one not fettered by past history. Although it is difficult to see, it is beginning to show itself if you look beyond the tired old dramas still seeking your attention.
One's purpose, I believe, is about bringing forth one's innate gifts and sharing them in the world in order to create something new, something better, and something more aligned to what is, rather than what has been. Everyone has gifts to share, there are those who are great leaders, teachers, technicians, engineers, artists, healers to name a few. Some are living their purpose by creating loving families for children of high vibration to be born into and nurtured. Some work with the Earth herself to protect and promote harmony with the natural world. Purpose to me is what makes your heart sing and gets you excited to meet each day. There is a prosperity that comes from living purpose that cannot be easily measured in terms of money, yet it is often more valuable because it cannot be bought.
Your purpose is tied to partnership
Partnership or relationship is key to any purpose. There are fundamental things we take for granted in our reality that have been created for this to even exist in this way at all. First, time and space are provided. The experience of linear time is only part of this dimension of life while we are here. You have been provided a body. You have been gifted with memory. These are just a few things that most everyone takes for granted yet are not universal in scope. For example, good luck fulfilling your purpose living on Jupiter, it just won't work! We are very much part of the Earth environment, not apart from it. So firstly, your relationship is to this planet.
Second, your partnership is with other beings on the planet- family, friends, business associates, romantic partners, etc. This is where much learning comes from as we attract or repel those by the way we are holding our vibration. Doesn't it feel very good when we are around those we are aligned with? Doesn't it feel less so when we interact with those who do not agree with or may even oppose us because of the way we express our truth? It is through interaction with others that our purpose is fulfilled. Being human implies that there are going to be connections made between people and energy shared.
Thirdly, your partnership with the Creator within you is most vital. Creation can be as simple as performing an action such as making a sandwich, all the way up to performing seeming miracles! Yes, we all possess that range of creation, yet we rarely test its limits. Now with the increased vibratory rate on the planet it is only a matter of a short while until people will engage the possibilities and create things in partnership with their creator that would not have been conceived of even a few years ago. The future will not be based upon the past. Expect the unexpected and be excited! It is our strong and active connection to our own creator energy that we are able to achieve our purpose. Bringing our inner creator online means we are to some degree connecting to our passion.
Purpose is connected to passion
There is no doubt that one's purpose is always connected to feeling good. If you want to make more room for passion to enter your life, make an inventory of the things that aren't giving you a good feeling state and start to reduce or eliminate them from your life. By doing this you will create space for yourself because you have freed energy that you were pouring into these things, people or situations. Then you will feel a gap or a void, as you now have extra time and energy. This is the point of change and choice. This is where you take the risk to choose something new, over repeating old patterns. Take some time to imagine the happy results of your new actions. This is time well spent. Some say we spend more time planning our next vacation than planning on where we are going to choose with our lives- something we live every day. We all have a tendency to want things to be safely predictable, however these are not the times we are living in, is it?
Passion is first felt by you, then is expressed in the world as you choose. It is a great demonstration of self love to indulge yourself in connecting to the things that make you feel alive. It is about us creating for ourselves an acute consciousness of the present moment, and truly living within it. Passion is always about being present. It does not exist in the past or the future. You may be passionate about a future event, yet you are always feel it in the present moment.
The next step is to explore increasing the energy you put into things you know and like, and also beginning to explore new things that are unknown to you now that you may be curious of. In a manner of speaking you are cultivating your thoughts and actions and consciously refining what brings you the best feeling state. Question your habits. Are they serving you or are they just a way of keeping you safe from feeling the cues and signals from your body or emotions that it is time to do something else? Become a master gardener of your own state of being. The journey and how we hold ourselves while we are here is as important as the destination. Acknowledging yourself daily, then hourly, then in every moment is a great practice that opens up greater love and greater knowledge, all experienced in the present.
Evolution is happening now
By being here we are all participating in evolution. This happens regardless of whether we want it or agree to it or not. Your agreement is your physical presence on the planet right now, in the energies of 5D. Everyone is moving forward because they choose to remain on the planet. There are many who are choosing to leave. Humans have a wide latitude about how long they will stay. Much of this happens unconsciously but it does hinge upon how well people are harmonizing with the increases in frequency of energy now here. As I have written many times before, the 5th dimension is about a frequency of vibrant energy that is all about love, not fear. The more we align ourselves to love, the easier it gets. Be mindful of any lower energies of fear that you allow into your awareness and know that you can choose differently. All you need to do is start listening to yourself and bit by bit you will be able to align yourself with the well-being that is your birthright.
I'll leave you with this quote from a favorite book of mine called "Living with Joy" by Sanaya Roman. Take some time to ponder it as you consider a new view of what your purpose might be.
"Everything you have right now in your life, you created from the past. Everything you have from here on out can be created at this moment, and it can be created differently. You do not need to know specifically what you will do today or the next day. You can start by BELIEVING that you do have a purpose, a concrete purpose, and you can begin by asking it to unfold for you."
We're not all here for the same purpose, life is a very individualized journey. We are all here experiencing our lives as we stand in amazing changes. Take that next step knowing you are doing it for you, and by loving you more you will also make this world better than it was. You are the gift. Please unwrap yourself and celebrate!
Until next time, be well
