True Freedom

As we enter unfamiliar ground, we get to look at how attached we are to the known. Even things we know are hurting us spiritually can be so comforting to the ego. The ego relies on whatever we know as normal, so it knows what experiences to reproduce, largely subconsciously. The golden handcuffs of money, self-identity as our work or social circle, and a life of convenience, are all part of our ego story, at some level. Even poverty consciousness relies on the concept of money.

I hear people talk about economic recovery like it’s the only option. I even catch myself wondering how I will survive without income. Then I giggle, because the future is so much brighter than the past. To get there with grace and ease, we need to be open to the unknown. I don’t have any details, just a warm feeling about what’s next.

To allow the new, the old must come to an end. As we have been told for a couple of years, the ego structures are no longer supported. Most of us are excited about the ending of human trafficking and corruption, but financial collapse is just too personal to be comfortable. We have been indoctrinated to be the extreme of self-reliance and independence. Now, it is all about Unity Consciousness and personal responsibility. Humans are designed to be tribal. Children naturally want to help. We are returning to our natural state, which means leaving the confines of learned behavior.

If this thought is overwhelming, just think of Star Trek. It’s hard to imagine an unknown, but luckily, we have a bit of a template. On this show, they have a society that doesn’t use money. Everyone is fed, clothed, and doing what they are naturally good at. When someone falls into addiction or irresponsible behavior, they are sent to counseling, not jail. They have fewer ways to check-out mentally, and less need for it. This is closer to the natural state of humans.

So many have been pushing for freedom, without actually considering what that looks like. In the end, this will be a beautiful shift in humanity. This is the dawn of the freedom of human potential. But it won’t look anything like the old paradigm. Reconsider the structures of power hierarchy (government, religion, money), and think what true freedom will do to them. We can’t be free, and be slaves at the same time.

Remember that our true needs have been falsely entangled with money. The Earth provides food, water, and air free of charge. I am well aware that there will be an adjustment period while we distance ourselves from city living and a consumer-based economy, but let’s keep our eye on the new. Wishing things would “just return to normal” will just bring undue stress. The energy structures have changed. We will have a new normal.

On a personal note, I fully understand what I’m asking. At 28, I was a commercial pilot, then I started having balance issues. After 6 months of testing, I was diagnosed with hereditary ataxia, confirmed with gene testing. This degenerative neurological condition cost me my career, and eventually my mobility and my income base. Now, I am in a wheelchair, and living on disability income. I’ve been through all this before, so I can tell you from experience, something better is waiting on the other side of this. I can also tell you it is a complete waste of time and energy to wish for the old. Focus on the new, and keep going.

Also remember the internet is a training ground for telepathy. You have the ability to check on your loved one without social media. Practice this. Close your eyes, focus on the person, and feel whatever you feel. Then you can validate your reaction with an email or text. You and also connect with your Guides, Higher Self, and Human Heart Grid (the new humanity). This is all available to you at any point, no wifi needed.

Human potential is much greater than an economic system. Freedom in the unknown is preferable to the struggle of the past. This will all be worth it. Stay present. Walk in the sun. Sing out loud. We are built for this. We are making history… We are making the shift to true freedom.

Holding Space

As the old systems fall into chaos, the new is emerging. I haven’t written anything in a while, because I feel totally disconnected from the old consciousness. I spend hours at a time just feeling my heart open and fill with Light. I am aware this isn’t the experience most are having right now, and I do occasionally feel a wave of fear from the masses, but I never mistake it as my own. When it happens, I meditate to bring myself back from the edge. Then I sit with my heart again.

From an ego standpoint this seems selfish, or maybe lazy. It isn’t. It’s a deep act of love and service, to the whole of humanity. Light workers are holding the space for the creation of the new… new systems, new templates, new everything. New to us in this life, but in actuality, a return to Grace.

Why so much fear right now? Because the ego doesn’t want to go. Ego death is much harder than physical death because it means venturing into the unknown. That said, many will choose physical death, and that’s okay. Sometimes change is too hard. Some planned to leave before this change. Some have finished their work. This is probably a good time to reexamine your thoughts about death and dying.

This is actually a good time to reexamine your thoughts on most things. Money, religion, governments, any hierarchy or control. We move forward in Unity and Love. This is the opposite of what we had before, and it will be hard for some. Love them anyway. Let them be where they are, and hold space for the new. As we all self-quarantine, we are afforded time for introspection. Align with your heart.

Fear is contagious, but so is Grace. Be the change. Whenever you are tempted to spread fear and drama, ask yourself why. The only mind you can work with is your own. Unity consciousness gives new weight to doing your own inner work. I can feel so many new lights coming on each time I meditate. It’s exciting!

Step back from network news, also. If you want to stay informed, look at data, not opinion. In the US, try the CDC site, or something similar. So far, I haven’t had the push to keep up with the info, just to create the energetic template for the new. Do whatever you are (non-emotionally) drawn to.

Go within, and feel how amazing it is out there, beyond the old matrix. Join me in holding the space.

* Heirloom Furniture *

It’s always amazing to me how normal life events have so many layers, just waiting to be uncovered. I am in the midst of relocating, so packing up my house is a daily chore. I have a lot of full boxes. Some would say to give it all away and start over. I’ve never been a fan of that concept for myself. I don’t have “junk”, but I have an abundance of family antiques and beautiful gifts.

I like to be surrounded by beautiful and old things. Some don’t, and there’s nothing wrong with that. I’ve had plenty of time (while packing) to consider what’s really important to me, to take to my new home. I just really love the idea of hearth and home… the cosy comfort of an old book, read by the fire. It just feels good. Some feel better living in an RV, with only what they can carry in a backpack. Again, no right or wrong, just an opportunity to know myself at a deeper level.

What also strikes me is the unity of all physical reality. Meaning, I cherish my belongings just as I cherish my body. People who have a “disposable” attitude about “stuff” tend to treat their bodies with the same flippancy. Look around you, and see if you can find this theme. Look at yourself, and see how you regard the physical.

I am totally comfortable with the impermanence of it all, belongings and body. All I’m saying is that both can be treasured while we’re here. Even (or maybe especially) the minimalist can appreciate their creature comforts. Respect and honor, without attachment.

Going one step further, YOU are an heirloom. Your birth into this body is the result of countless ancestors. Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to your body. Treat yourself as the beautiful gift you are. You’ll never get another shot at this one specific life, so live it with as much love and joy as you can. We are all stories in the end, passed down to the next generation, like heirloom furniture.

Grid Points

There is much talk about the new Earth Grid, and the human Heart Grid, and all the new alignments with 5D. Some have been physically visiting places (for decades), and planting crystals. Others have been working ethereally. Now it’s time to actually become the physical anchors. How exciting is that?!?

Several years ago, in meditation, I was told I was now a gatekeeper. No job description, no outline, just the title. Learn as I go, I guess. It started with etheric work, and eventually moved into my body. I can feel energies come and go, through my body, to either anchor or clear the collective. Big energies. Before anyone starts reprimanding me for using my body as a conduit, let me just say this wasn’t a choice. At no point did I ever volunteer to process this stuff physically. That said, I’m sure I was built for this. It’s exhausting sometimes, but my self-care is on point. I’m not in harm’s way.

Now, there are several of us being placed (relocated, temporarily or permanently), to become grid points. Living grid points. Wow! The visual I get is the end of ‘The Fifth Element’, when Leelu’s heart opens, and energy from the elements shoots out. I doubt it will be quite that dramatic, but still just as important. If you have recently been relocated, or suddenly have odd travel plans, odds are you are about to ground some energy for the new grid systems. Yay!!! I’m pretty excited about this one!

It isn’t tough. Self-care, and an open heart is all you need. That includes clean food & drink, sleep when tired, meditation, and lots of love & laughter. Care for your body, and keep the vibe high, and the rest will be done by your Higher Self. I haven’t been given specifics on a date, but it feels like more than one, with the first surge happening around the equinox. I definitely feel like I need to be settled at my new home by March 21st. But that may just be my personal directive, and others may be different.

2020 is off to a great start. We can’t even imagine what lies before us in this new decade. We were built for this. This is why we answered the call to incarnate on Earth at this precious time. We are so very loved and supported. We got this!

Gentle Remembrance

The energies are not at all gentle. The emotional chaos being stirred up is downright brutal. After having a really turbulent 24 hours, I finally took a nice hot bath to clear my head. I always get the best downloads in the bath. Water and self-care. Golden.

What I got was the usual “new energy in, old energy out” spiel, along with some helpful context. Keep focused on who you want to be when you grow up, and move towards that. Move your thoughts, words, and deeds in the direction you want to arrive. Sounds obvious, but when you are battling the internal fray, it’s nice to have a reminder.

I have been dealing with feelings of fear, overwhelm, and lack, none of which are common for me. The fact that these aren’t my normal leads me to the conclusion that this isn’t all mine. We all assist in clearing the collective, as well as bloodlines, so remember not to take it as personally as it feels. Feel it, and release it.

No choice is wrong, and no one is judging you. It is simply about who you want to become. Do I want to squirrel away every penny, or do I want to spread the wealth, and trust that more money will come? Do I want to play it safe, or do I want to live to the fullest? Again, there is no wrong answer, but very different paths, leading to very different destinations.

So, your invisible team considers this a gentle remembrance. Feel it all, then choose one, and release the other. Remember who you came here to be. One road will feel peaceful and expansive. The other road will feel oppressive and isolating. Your body will make it clear which path serves you. And if you don’t get a clear answer right away, just sit with the question until the answer comes. All in Divine timing.

Self-care is instrumental. Your body is shedding old DNA, and needs your support with this shift. Clean diet, clean environment, lots of love and praise. Everything will happen more smoothly if your internal dialog is loving and encouraging. Know that you’re doing a great job, both mentally and physically.

On that note, if your relaxation is chemically dependent (drugs or alcohol), now is the time to learn a new coping skill. Learn to use your breath to regulate your heartbeat. Develop a relationship with your body. Lately, I’ve been doing breath work utilizing a big in-breath, and a very slow exhale, repeat for at least three minutes. For instant energy, try the breath of fire from Kundalini yoga. Find what works for you, and practice. If you get stranded on an island it’s always good to know how to work with the body, without a substance. Also, this frees you from the consumerism associated with mild anxiety or depression. Take your power back.

Who do you want to be when you grow up? If you are experiencing anything else, it’s just here to say goodbye. Feel it, thank it, release it, and choose the other path. Be gentle with yourself and others, as we all remember who we are. We are all just stories in the end, make yours a good one. May your remembrance be gentle.

Love & Service

January 2020 has been a bit crazy. We were shifted onto our proper ascension timelines, and we have been processing the backlog of “stuff” that can’t come with us on this new trajectory. There used to be multiple timeline options, but now it’s down to two: ego-based and soul-based. Since the ego structure is no longer being supported, that line will dwindle out, as people either wake up, or die off. I know that may sound harsh or scary, but that’s how change always happens. It’s not apocalyptic, it’s just normal in a moral existence.

Our primary job at this point is to embody this new energy. Instead of the old measurement of “doing”, we now focus on “being”. Walk your talk, and recenter often. Whenever I feel a bit scrambled or confused by the intensity, it is most helpful to concentrate on love and service. That’s really what the higher timeline is about. In your meditative practice, ask, “How can I be of greatest service? What path leads me to love?”

Love and service are the natural expression of the soul. Living from that place is embodiment. Remember that you can’t pour from an empty glass. You need to love and serve yourself so much that your cup runneth over, and spills into the world around you. Martyrdom is not service. Codependency is not love. You can only know others as deeply as you know yourself. You can only love and serve the world as deeply as you love and serve yourself. Everything is holographic, and all change comes from within.

On the lines of holographic reality, and unity consciousness, remember that every part of the physical world is all one thing. If you can’t manage to exercise today, maybe do some light cleaning. If you are knee deep in shadow work, maybe clean out a closet. Maintain both your body and your environment. Do something everyday to improve the physical world. Cleaning up the global environment starts with your personal environment (body & home). Everything in a physical world requires maintenance… bodies, homes, cars, relationships… everything decays without attention and effort. Love and service.

What is best for you is always best for everyone. I am talking love here, not money or some other ego measurement. If it brings you a sense of joy, love, or comfort, it’s the right direction for all concerned. If it makes sense mentally, but you feel uneasy or anxious, then get out of your ego mind. Recenter on love and service, and the proper path will show itself. Getting there in the practical world may take some courage, because change is always a challenge, but your proper path is supported. Soul-based living is supported. Our invisible team is hard at work for us, we just need to start moving in that direction.

As was mentioned in the 2020 energy forecast, intuition is becoming more physical for all of us. Listen to the wisdom of your body. If a situation, person, food, or anything makes you feel drained every time you engage with them, then just stop doing it. Your body is sending you a clear message… listen! We can avoid all kinds of illness if we listen to our bodies, then take action before we get sick. These physical cues are getting stronger. Please listen. At first, it may take some concentration to be totally aware of physical sensations, but it gets easier with practice.

The other thing that keeps coming through is this: never underestimate the power of your personal narrative. Are you a human being having spiritual experiences? Then that is exactly how much power you have allowed yourself. Are you a spiritual being having a human experience? Then that is exactly how much power you have allowed yourself. Are you a creator god/goddess wrapped in a human suit? Then that is exactly how much power you have allowed yourself. Likewise, if your self-talk is abusive and negative, you have seriously limited your own personal power. Self-mastery is mental-mastery. Mind your mind.

We are loved and supported in ways we can’t even imagine. We are shifting realities just by being here. We were built for this. Your love & service are greatly appreciated!

Sacred Rebellion

Before you start this article, take a few deep breaths. Now take a few more. Return to your body. Return to the now. Nothing is all that bad, when you keep returning to yourself. Remember this. Maybe it’s a good time to reread ‘The Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle.

The old world is dying, and the new is just beginning. Both death and birth can be scary and dramatic… or you can learn techniques to ease the inevitable. For birth, Lamaze breathing just gives a point to focus on. The baby is coming out either way. That’s where we are on the world stage. Wild fires, and assassinations, and war, oh my. I’m not saying don’t care or stay uninformed, I’m just saying don’t join the circus. Stay above the fray. This is where you’re needed.

At this point in history, it’s important not to repeat old stories, old triggers, both personal and collective. Don’t fall into the same patterns of fear and division. We’ve seen that movie before. Rebel. Joy is rebellion. Love is rebellion. Laughter is definitely a sacred rebellion. Staying present and relaxed is the only way to steer this ship to calmer waters. The nice part is that it takes very few focused minds to hold this new trajectory. If you fall into the fray, just climb out, and refocus. We can hold this space.

Climbing out may be easier if you mix things up. Change your routine, change your patterns, change your mind. Please don’t incorporate the current atmosphere into your personal narrative. We are all feeling it, and it will pass. Making it part of your story just brings attachment, and a deeper experience of the chaos.

There have been times this past week (eclipse window) when I have felt great, only to be side-swiped by a wave of fear. I am aware of my own energy enough to know it wasn’t mine, but it still knocked me down a few notches. The trick is to get back up quickly – don’t stay there. The longer you wallow, the more tempting it is to make it personal. We all get knocked down, that’s just a given. Recognizing it, and getting back up is mastery.

Try to keep it light. Keep returning to your body. Stay present. Fear is simply an imagined future, not a current experience. Take breathing breaks. You aren’t alone. We were built for this. This is the sacred rebellion.

Goodbye 2019

Every year I reflect on the lessons I’ve learned. I highly recommend this practice, both as a way of honoring the year, and reviewing personal growth. This feels like more than my usual yearly note. We are wrapping up a decade of growth. What an amazing ride it’s been! There were some deep wounds in this decade, but from here, they seem distant and totally necessary. 2019 was magical for me. Here are a few of my most powerful lessons…

I learn a lot by observation, but it’s more painful than making my own mistakes. More awareness, less adrenaline. Not my favorite.
It’s the compassionate thing to simply let people make their own mistakes, without trying to break the fall.
This level of compassion is tough for me.
Stopping the flow of my life hurts, even when it’s on purpose. I do better when I don’t refuse the flow.
Unexpectedly finding new soul family members makes the journey worth it.
Soul family only shows up when I’m living at a soul level. Consistently.
I feel like I’ve exceeded my own expectations in this life. It’s all frosting from here.
Compromising myself for the comfort of others is no longer an option.
Codependency can be healed with awareness.
I am not stronger than narcissistic abuse. Removing toxic people from my life is essential for awareness and healing.
I love that my life is so different, even in the not-so-fun ways.
I love that I can feel my DNA changing, even when others think I’m crazy.
Those who consider me crazy aren’t my people.
I love that meditating now changes the smell of my skin.
I am really rooting for the awakening of the Devine Masculine. It’s exciting!
Even when things don’t go as planned, I’m really proud of myself for jumping in with both feet. All in. Not many people do that.
Giving your word is making a commitment. Commitment is very important to me.
Forgiveness and trust are two different things. Forgiveness comes with time. Once broken, trust never grows back the same way. Trust is very important to me.
Someone can only love me as deeply as they love themselves. I should read that again.
I love being single.
Staying open to the possibility of partnership is important for my path.
My personal definition of a successful romantic relationship is when you are still friends after it ends.
Fear is always lying. Always.
Friendship is always more important than money. Always.
It’s hard for me to see people at an ego level. I really need to watch their actions, not their light. Light is embodied through action.
If I am confused by someone’s behavior, all I need to do is look at their partner and friends. Their circle doesn’t lie. They fit for a reason.
Many of my inner circle live far from me. I hope that changes.
Let people be right where they are, without judgement, but keep moving.
For the first time, I’m glad I incarnated early. Helping to lay the groundwork for this shift  has been an honor and a privilege.
The fabric of this ego personality is unraveling rapidly. Embodiment is weird.
I’m not sure I have an inner child. I’m not sure that’s a bad thing.
I carry the archetypes of Truth and Faith. Truth is easy, Faith has been elusive. Until now.
I’m so excited for the future!

If you missed it, check out the energy forecast for 2020 ~ First Steps. This next year promises to be a bright one. Always leave room for unexpected happiness! Blessings on your sacred journey!

2020 ~ First Steps

A new decade is upon us, as the adventure continues! For those who have been doing some kind of inner work, 2020 looks to be very bright. For those actively avoiding their inner work, the coming year will include a lot of abrupt endings, to put you back on your path. For those who have never even heard of inner work, waking up will be abrupt and confusing. Be kind to all, especially yourself, as we each take our own first steps into the future.

2020 marks the year when we (collectively) begin to shift from individual ego lives, to the larger picture, or hive mentality. Before anyone gets worried about losing their individuality… Look around you at the world stage. The current paradigm was built on, and for, the personal ego. Power struggles are an an ego-based dynamic. We are now beginning to see the value in unity and community, with shared responsibility and support. We will still be individuals, but the focus changes to bringing our individual gifts to the outer world, instead of hoarding them for our separate lives.

For some, sharing personal gifts may seem intimidating. My best advice? Get over yourself. Heal whatever wounds are blocking your expression. The world needs you. It doesn’t matter if your gift is teaching yoga or making lampshades, just let your creativity flow into the world. Someone is waiting for exactly what you have to offer. We are all a step for someone else’s growth. This life is not our’s alone – we belong to each other. This sharing doesn’t have to be your “day job”, but it needs to happen. Scale is irrelevant.

Another big change in 2020 is body-based intuition. Many of us have relied on mental intuition (seeing timelines), or just powering through to reach a goal. That’s no longer the case. Moving from ego to collective also requires moving from forcing to feeling. Not emotional feeling, but pure body reaction. Does thinking about something make you tired? Not angry or sad, but tired. Emotions are generally wrapped up in stories, but the body has its own intelligence. Listen to your body!!! It will guide you.

Free will still matters, and it’s important to keep moving. At the same time, as soon as we try to move in the wrong direction (away from our highest path), things will just crumble. When things fall apart, just know there is something better for you. It’s cosmic redirection, that’s all. If you continue to ignore the small signs, the body will suffer. If you are suddenly gaining weight or getting sick, stop and sit with your body. Ask it what it needs to feel supported. Let your body lead, instead of dragging it along for the ride. Your body strives for health. All we have to do is listen.

This is a year of fluid focus. The old paradigm had us set a goal, and then use determination to get it. Now, the goal is more of a state of being, and how it happens may change. Let go of the “how”. For example, if you want more peace in your life, focus on that feeling and just let the circumstances show up. Let the world move around you. The free will (focus) part of that is daily connection with that feeling. No outer circumstances, just the feeling in your body. Meditate daily, in whatever way works for you, and connect to peace. You are programming your DNA with receptors for a certain vibe, and it will magnetically attract situations that match. Just try it. Everyday.

For the first embodiers – you know who you are – contemplate physical life beyond the ego. Ego death is a big deal, but if it is entered with awareness, it isn’t as traumatic (so I’m told). It’s a whole new level of service to willfully evolve in this way. Commitment to the mission takes on new meaning. It isn’t a choice you have to make right now, but it’s a good point to contemplate. So much of the human experience is based on the ego. For now. We are all evolving beyond it, some very soon.

Be gentle with yourself, with others, and mostly with your body. Support others with their process, while maintaining your own boundaries. Be sure you fill your own cup before giving to others, or asking from others. Responsibility and support, as we take these first steps together.

Growing Up

Since the 1960’s growing up has been equated with selling out. This is a real tragedy, because the opposite is true. They say great power requires great responsibility, but the important part is seeing the other side… Great responsibility leads to great power. Maturity isn’t selling out, it’s stepping up. You can’t direct your life until you step into the role of adult. As an adult, you set your own course.

The idea of staying a kid is presented as life being easy and carefree. How is that true? As a child, you are forced to conform to your parents beliefs – religion, schooling, gender expectations… do what you’re told, and don’t rock the boat. As an adult, you get to exercise your free will by choosing your own beliefs and your own unique path. The world is your oyster, if you step into your own power, and take responsibility for your own life. True adults are always much happier than eternal children. Acting from free will choice is just more comfortable than being the victim of circumstance. Less whining involved, also.

Along with the misconception that being an eternal child is desirable, most people never had true adult role models. Many were raised by eternal children, and have no real reference to what true maturity actually looks like. If I’m honest, this part breaks my heart. I was raised by very aware and introspective people, and not many had that foundation. Never underestimate the benefits of a good childhood, nor the scars of a bad one.

Blame and tantrums were passed off as adult relationships. Oppression and victimization were the common workplace experiences. Having a family just added stress, not joy. Life was made out to be very hard. This is the mentality of the eternal child. Always dreaming of an easy existence, that never really existed. In my personal experience, this broken world described my time at school. I couldn’t wait to grow up, so I could design my own destiny. But I had strong, mature, adult role models to pattern after.

This is when you get to be really honest with yourself. Did your parents actually act like adults? Did you just assume they were demonstrating adult behavior, just because they were your parents? Can you look back on your childhood, and see what you may have labeled as adult behavior, that really wasn’t? Would you feel differently about your life if you reframed your idea of growing up? Are you happy continuing with your current definition? Ponder these questions, and see what else comes up.

Some think that maturity is simply doing what you need to do, instead of what you want to do. I look at it differently. Maturity is being fully responsible for your own expression (creation). Maturity is keeping all your thoughts and desires in your head, and only speaking or acting after you’ve thought through the consequences. Basically, using your brain as a filter. This changes your every interaction, thus creating a new reality. The next level is redirecting your thoughts, so your inner dialog is really what you want it to be. This is real adult-ing.

The Universe is about to expect a level of maturity most have never even contemplated. Now is the time to reframe and redesign your thoughts on growing up. We are about to leave the eternal children to their victim mentality, and move through personal power to the mature level of absolute accountability. Thinking about your personal power, and why it might be lacking, is the best way to prepare for this shift. Be gentle with yourself… how you got here wasn’t your fault, but it is definitely your responsibility to change it. That’s what growing up is really about.
