“Ascension”? Really? With All of This Mess Around Us (and Within)? Some Thoughts to Consider…

Share

Have you looked around lately – within your own life and/or in those around you and the world in general and asked, “What IS this mess, anyway? How is THIS evolution and progression?!” Have you had hours, days, and/or weeks where you’ve started feeling extremely angry, fearful,  listless, like you want to crawl out of your skin… and yet have no specific cause for it? And what about being weighted down… have you had moments when you’ve felt as if you’re completely filled with lead, like you’re wearing a suit that makes you feel like you’re carrying an extra hundred pounds or so, and all you want to do is sleep, alternating with spurts of energy that you can’t seem to alleviate?

Yep… I gotcha. Been there, done that… and I do this EVERY DAY; I meditate, I clear, I heal… and I help others do the same, so I’m in the “heightened awareness” place most of the time. I do know how to observe the collective consciousness without becoming lost in it – I’ve become quite adept at it – and yet, a few weeks ago, POW! I didn’t know what hit me!

First a Moment About the Earth
The mind says, OK… we’re “supposed to be” evolving… progressing… getting ready for “Earth 2.0,” ascending… whatever you want to call it. Yet, on the surface, it seems we’re more of a mess than ever: extreme polarities in belief systems, politics, and many other areas; shootings in movie theaters, temples, and consulates; and drugs that produce zombie-like behavior, at the top of the list. Individually, many have the lives they worked so hard to create  just crumbling away no matter how hard they fight to preserve it… losing jobs, severing long-standing ties and relationships, succumbing to debt, and releasing much of the “picture” of the life many had thought was their dream. Earth herself has been tumultuous: global extremes in weather, earthquakes rumbling around the world, volcanoes that haven’t been active for decades or more coming back to life, tsunamis, polar ice caps melting away.

So, you might ask, “What’s THAT about?”

Several months back, I was shown the bigger picture related to the evolution of Earth – of Gaia herself – and what that entails, as we stand on the ground, here, right now. As within our bodies, our skin, liver, heart, lungs, and all other organs and cells are a part of us (with their own consciousness as well), we are a part of the whole organism of the Earth. I was shown how throughout this existence, part of the exploration and experience of the lessons of duality and the ego have caused us to bleed, at one time or another, into every land of this world. We’ve had wars, we’ve hurt ourselves, we’ve hurt each other, we’ve hurt the other beings here, as well as played with creating imbalance in the organism as a whole. The result: This “blood” – both literal and metaphorical – has seeped into Earth, as so much seeps into our bodies through the skin and then incorporates into our systems.

Through all of this, she has adjusted as well as she could, realigned herself, so she could continue on. So WE could continue on, in some way, shape, or form…. to do the same thing again and again, over and over. To REALLY learn those lessons!

When our bodies do this – forget the unity, forget that all the cells, all the organs have to work together to function optimally – what happens? Disease; malfunctions and sometimes failure of entire organic systems within us. Cancer. Auto-immune disease. Allergies (“irritations”). Many other chronic conditions. And, as a collective part of the Earth organism, “as above, so below”… why do you think we have an overabundance of these types of diseases within our own bodies today?

When we get an overabundance of toxins within the body, what does our body naturally do to rebalance itself? Detoxify; it tries to push all of the dangerous toxins that have become embedded in the system to the surface… to release them and regain balance.

Guess what Earth’s doing? Except this is the BIGGIE… she’s detoxifying because it’s time to get to the next level of evolution, to complete this existence at this level of density, with these lessons of duality. And as a part of this organism, we’re along for the ride!

So what does that entail? Well… all of that blood, all of that disservice and ego-based separation that has seeped into her “system” is coming to the surface… while all of what we’ve done to disservice our own bodies is doing the same, which can exacerbate the situation. So, yes… a lot of rage, resentment, fear, anxiety, regret, guilt, doubt, sorrow, and pain coming to the surface now… to be healed, dissolved, and released, once and for all.

Needless to say, how that affects us is up to the individual. Can we release all of this productively, or will we allow ourselves to get lost in it?

From another, non-judgmental vantage point, there are many, many souls who have chosen NOT to be here during the peak of this and/or to see it through to completion from “ground zero”; they’ve come, finished the lessons they want to have here, and choose to do the rest elsewhere, outside of this 3D world. So, they are transitioning out; it is a choice they have made, and it doesn’t matter whether they’re home in the shower and fall and hit their head or in public where they get run over by a car or shot. And what this “gunk” coming to the surface does is also provide ample opportunity for groups of souls to go ahead and transition out en masse. Recently, a pretty awakened friend of mine was in a place where she was considering the choice of “walking out”… and she created herself a door where a truck came barreling down the road as she was crossing a busy street and could have easily provided the doorway for her to transition. She told me that she knew in that moment that no matter how it looked… she knew it would be quick and painless; in fact, she knew that her soul would leave her body before the truck ever hit. At that moment… she realized how easy it really can be, and she decided to stay.

I have been guided over the past several months to focus on healing at the collective and mass level… and I am shown, time and time again, how individual challenges and limitations are personal experiences that are directly related to the collective experience. The more we can sit in love and just douse Earth and the collectives and mass consciousness, the easier the transition and adjustments will be.

Now, On to That Leaden, Listless Feeling You Might Be Experiencing…
Since I’ve been guided to do collective clearing/healing after collective clearing/healing, there was a point, about a week-and-a-half ago, when I started thinking, “Were we CRAZY to plan all of this, to do all of this all at once… with so many here right now who haven’t even opened their eyes even a slit toward Awakening? This is nuts… how can we do this?” I could FEEL how many have no idea right now; I could FEEL the work yet to do. All I could think was, “I’m SO DONE with all of this!” (Note: I also actually, for the first time ever, asked for a “door to transition,” and was provided one by my ever-present guide, Archangel Ezekiel, THAT NIGHT… why I chose not to take it is a story for another day… 😉 )

I’ve been staying ever-present, calm, clear, and watching the growing freneticism of many… who are fighting harder and harder to hold on to that which doesn’t serve them, because they believe that’s what they’re supposed to do. I’ve been watching and helping others with their pain, anger, resentment, fear… and as much as I LOVE what I do, there were some days I was starting to get tired.

And then, last weekend… wow, the heaviness set in. I became distracted… I didn’t want to meditate, didn’t want to connect… and as much as I love to work out, I felt like I had lead running through my body! There were a few days when all I wanted to do was sleep (luckily over an uneventful weekend); and yet, I simultaneously felt like I was about to crawl out of my skin, uncomfortable, edgy… I started thinking, “What the heck is all of this about? I KNOW this feeling… but I can’t quite place it, either…”

I’ve had the blessing of having a steady stream of client sessions, so I set that up for myself well (from the Higher Self, along with my guide family, obviously)… because regardless of how I feel, I make sure I do everything I can to ensure that I’m open and clear for the work I do with others. So, I at least continued doing SOME self-work, which was helpful. One day, I didn’t have sessions until later in the afternoon; I had planned to go to the gym in the morning, didn’t make it. Then I thought I would hop on the elliptical at home; never made it. And I was feeling edgier and more impatient than ever. Finally, about midday, I heard, loudly, “GET OUTSIDE.” So I went out into my yard and sat in the grass. I actually started feeling EVEN EDGIER… and felt like I needed to get to a waterfront. So I took my dog, and we went to a nearby lake, to trot the 3 miles around the trail along the perimeter. As we progressed, I just practiced an exercise I suggest to quite a few clients – simply BREATHING into my heart, and expanding my light. Losing all thought… simply focusing on the heart. Expanding the light, connecting with the nature around me. Through this, there was an extraordinary number of dragonflies that were swarming around us the entire time – green, blue, white, brown, you name it, zipping right up to my face and then away, zipping around us, hovering nearby (for those who don’t know the “message of the dragonfly”… dragonflies help to bring in LIGHT).

And all of that time, I thought, “This feels SO FAMILIAR…”

Shortly after that, the discomfort ebbed away, and I felt a LOT better… and able to attend to my sessions throughout the evening.

That night, I went to sleep with the intention of connecting to understand WHAT THE HECK was going on. In the dream, I was at my acupuncturist’s office, and she was talking to me about someone else who was being “pinned” on the table. She was telling me about how the person’s symptoms would flow and ebb… just like she was in labor to deliver a child.

In the middle of the dream, a HUGE light bulb went off for me… THAT’S IT! I remember thinking in the dream. It’s the Earth… she’s in LABOR!

When I woke up, fresh from that dream, I realized immediately that the stages of what I had been going through myself were JUST LIKE being in labor to deliver a child, without the pain (of course, I had forgotten… it HAS been more than 14 years since my last go of it! LOL)!

So… when you look back to the section I wrote before this, about Earth and her detoxification… let’s also add that she’s now at the equivalent stage of being in labor to “birth” a whole new version of herself. The part to be aware of is that since we are a part of this organism of Earth, guess what? We will all have our individual ways of playing that out. We’re all detoxing that which doesn’t serve us, and now we’re TOTALLY “ripping off the Band-Aid” to get to this next level of existence… but HERE’S THE AWESOME NEWS: That means we’re ALMOST THERE!

After considering all of this, you might ask, “Yikes! What does this mean for me? Does that mean that my life is going to implode? Is it all going to fall apart?” That’s a good question… are you willing to let go of that which doesn’t serve you and SEE it as what is Highest and Best… or are you going to try to cling to the familiar (regardless of how miserable it is) and make it a painful transition? Can you take some time out for yourself every day – yes, every single day – to simply get in 15 minutes of clearing the mind and breathing into you heart? Can you take some time every day to send love and healing to the Earth of which we’re a part? Can you go through one day – just ONE DAY to start – without judgment of any kind toward yourself and others? Can you stay completely fluid to what’s going on around you, without giving any energy to resistance? The more we do for ourselves, the more we practice acceptance and fluidity, the more we release that which doesn’t serve us with grace, ease, balance, harmony, and joy… and the more space we create for ourselves to let in what DOES serve us in the Highest and Best way, from the individual to the collective.

And the easier and quicker our “delivery” in to a new, fresh, higher vibration Earth will be.  🙂

 

 

Journey Reflections from the Mountain (Mount Shasta Tales, Part Two)

Share

Twelve days.

That’s how long I’ve been on this personal retreat; first to the Vancouver, BC area… and then to Mount Shasta, CA – one of the key spiritual “energy vortices” of the world. I’ve been getting the calling to come here for the past 2.5 years. I was TOLD last December, under no uncertain terms, that I WOULD be coming here, by June latest.

So here I came… or should I say, to here I’ve returned.

The trip to White Rock/Vancouver, BC was a separate, awesome experience in itself… so foreign, and yet so familiar and comfortable.

But… heading into Mount Shasta, California…

I want to tell you: No matter what you read, or what you think you might feel before you “come to the mountain,”  it IS a different world here, and you can’t understand that until you’re here and can FEEL it. Seriously; at some point on the way in, I KNOW I must’ve moved through a dimensional doorway. After just three or four hours of being here… without a better way to explain it in words, I literally could FEEL every cell in my body spread out… and I could literally feel MORE SPACE in between every cell. Lots more! Which, in essence, allows a “living meditation”… because everything just IS here. What a lesson in BEing!

So much space… between cells, between words, between thoughts. Just SPACE. More than I’ve ever felt before. And thus, time actually feels like it’s slower (I could swear I’ve been here for a month… LOL), because every moment is SO FULL.

The view of Mt. Shasta from the peak of Spring Hill

And the mountain… you literally feel the mountain welcoming you home. “It’s been awhile… welcome back…” And such a preponderance of being embraced with love.

From that feeling, everything moves so much more peacefully in this area. The experiences I’ve had here have been beyond amazing… how many people I’ve met that I feel like I’ve known forever (which, you know, of course I have); how many people I’ve met in passing that I end up HUGGING after our interaction… because it’s like being home. And I can’t even begin to explain how much “unexplainable” stuff in the rest of the world is commonplace here… and almost overlooked because it’s simply expected.

It IS home for me… an ancient, ancient one. The original one. There is far more to explain about THAT statement than I can cover in this one blog post. It’s a place about which I’ve been having visions for the past several years; above ground and below ground. It’s the place where the mythical Telos resides underneath and is superimposed over the mountain, in a higher frequency.

It truly is another world… and the moment I got here, my heart transported me immediately to another time, to the memories I’ve uncovered of being here way, way, way in the past… in the beginning, during Lemuria.

I know I’m typically very forthright about my spiritual experiences (of course, that’s the purpose of this blog, right?)… but for now, I’m holding many of the details close to me. This trip went far, far deeper than I ever could have anticipated, and it’s so intimate that I’m not ready to share the energy or some of the details of it. Yet. But I will say this: In the past 12 days, I have brought up and released some VERY deep muck that I didn’t even know I had. My heart has broken wide open and been healed and mended multiple times in the healing process… so much that for several nights, I had Archangel Ezekiel at my side, prominently residing at the side of my bed as I tossed and turned. One night, I had Ezekiel AND Adama (the head of the Council of 12 of Telos/Lemuria… aka Archangel Daniel – more on that later)  there, as I was being given some huge energetic download that lasted most of the night… and I was paralyzed with the intensity and brightness of it. However, in the morning… I became a new person… to get to the really, really core level to clear out the rest.

There is so much hiking, so many mountains and lakes and waterfalls in the area, that you can be any place in nature with a beautiful view within 10 minutes. And most of them all have their own energy.

Castle Lake

Castle Lake was my first jaunt on my own, shortly after I got to Mount Shasta. I hiked to two spots that were fairly secluded… sat on the water on rocks and had the most phenomenal time with elementals… completely audible and visible in plain sight (even though it took me a little while to tune in and realize what I was seeing/hearing). Such a huge healing there, and such a beautiful (and fun) spot!

I spent an afternoon with a friend at the nearby Stewart Mineral Springs… I don’t need to say anything more about that, beyond simple bliss!

One morning I climbed Spring Hill with a friend… a beautiful hike with yet more spectacular views of Mt. Shasta and surrounding mountains (including Black Butte and the Eddy Mountains).

And other moments at Lake Siskiyou, so quiet and contemplative…

I got lost on the bottom half of Mount Shasta, with my housemate here, A’shaya… and had a great time doing it (see my post, Getting Lost to Find Our Way, Mount Shasta Tales Part One)

What was truly amazing was my access to Panther Meadows, the most sacred site on Mount Shasta, near the peak. When I was talking about the dates for my trip plans, a friend I made who lives here in Mount Shasta kept on telling me that it’s unfortunate that I wouldn’t get there, because they NEVER open the road to Panther Meadows (closest to the top of the mountain) before July 1st. I just told her I was following guidance, because I had gotten very specific dates on when to come… and if it wasn’t meant to be, so be it. On Friday (June 15th), my housemate here told me she’d heard that Panther Meadows had been opened… and then I heard it again when I was shopping in one of the downtown shops by a local shopkeeper. Surprise all around… so… I was able to go after all.

Panther Meadow on Mt. Shasta... it might not look like much, but the photo can't capture the FEEL of this incredibly sacred space near the top of the mountain.

I’ve been up there three times in a two-day period, regardless of the snow up there. The first time was so profound and intense and personal that I choose not to share it… quite yet. Let’s just say I was “shown” where I would go the night before in my dreams… when we arrived there, I immediately recognized it… and I was instantaneously overwhelmed by the number of Beings present at the Meadows as I entered… it was jam-packed… because I realized that I knew all of them. My original soul family, there waiting… and at that overwhelming moment when I remembered all of them, the energy/presence of all of them, my heart just opened up with joy and love at being there, seeing them again, as though I’d never forgotten. What happened after that… well, let’s just say that Adama and St. Germain were there to help me clear out the REST of the muck that was under the layer that had been cleared out, in one fail swoop. It was so beautiful, so freeing, and so absolutely sacred… that I sat on my knees in the mud in the midst of the snow and sobbed. First from pain and sadness of so much realization… and then, as that all flowed out, from joy and the overwhelming love from all of it.

It was just beyond words.

The second time I went back was simply a solitary contemplation… more space… and the feeling of support from all around me, with some messages that were important to process.

The third time… I was shown another spot further up the springs on the Meadows – again in my dreams – and when I found the spot, I stood there and was saturated with the most brilliant light I’ve experienced. I felt so big, with so much space… that I still feel like I’m glowing.

And then I was done with Panther Meadows… so I departed with such huge gratitude and love for the acknowledgement and healing I had received.

Orbs and violet light at Ascension Rock... how incredible!

This evening – my last evening here – I had been reminded from another “new-old friend” I’d made here about Ascension Rock, up on the mountain. For some reason, I felt the pull to go back up, and this time find this spot. On the way, I was guided to stop in several other locations… and then I reached it. I sat in meditation, half aware, half somewhere far away… and I suddenly heard clearly, “Look up… look at where the sun shines through the trees…” I did and immediately saw the violet light and the orbs… and surprisingly, though my phone camera hadn’t done much to capture any of that for the rest of this trip, I actually got some amazingly cool pictures with it there.

Again, I felt so surrounded, nurtured, and loved.

Beyond the spots, I have met a number of people I “already know”… and it’s amazing how quickly we connect. And, even more amazing is the string of people I’ve met who talk to me, give me the piece I’m to get from them… and then they forward me on to who has the next “piece” – “Oh, you HAVE to meet _________…. here’s their contact information, tell them I sent you…” And so on. If I stopped to think about it… it would make my head spin. But it’s really just how an entirely conscious environment allows manifestation to play out, so effortlessly!

So, I’ve packed my things to go home tomorrow, and am sitting here this evening, just soaking in every last moment at the house where I’ve rented a room, great energy in itself right on the lower part of the mountain. I’m so thankful for this, for my journey, for my path… and for the fun and incredible moments that are more and more common as I go along.

Part of my quest here was to determine whether it was a suitable place to hold some classes for the Trinity Energy I teach… well, it was never really a question… it was simply SEEING and FEELING how it would fit here. And, finding out how perfectly the Trinity Energy ties in to what others are understanding and experiencing in the same but different ways. Perfectly.

I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to try out Victoria Lee’s Trinity Table (even though I’ve tried the one in North Carolina before)… we’d had such a long and lovely conversation (someone else I’ve just met that I’ve known forever)… but as she said, “Well, next time… because you’ll be back…”

Absolutely. I’ll be back. Conscious memory is in my blood now… and it won’t be long.  🙂

 

 

Getting Lost to Find Our Way… Mount Shasta Tales (Part One)

Share

While visiting in this awesome area of Mount Shasta, California – one of the major spiritual “energy vortices” in the world – there is SO MUCH nature time to have here that I’ve been out to different places for hikes and meditation spots around town since I arrived. Today, it was time for the first experience ON this huge, imposing, and yet nurturing mountain of the core point of the ancient land of Lemuria, over the mythical underworld of Telos.

The house in which I’m renting a room is right on the bottom portion of the mountain. In fact, from the room I’m renting, there’s a sliding door right next to the bed, onto a balcony that looks right up to the peak. I go to sleep every night looking out into the darkness, feeling the pulse of the mountain… as well as MUCH else!

I have a housemate, A’shaya, who is also renting a room here,  in her last week after being here for 6 weeks (7 by the time she leaves).  She’s done a lot of hiking from the house (there’s a foot path into the thick of things here on the mountain just a block from here) with a former renter… so I mistakenly assumed she’d known all of the path markers.

That probably wasn’t a good assumption on my part… on a mountain that climbs to 14,400 feet above sea level (starting at about 4,000 feet) , with a circumference of about 70 miles.

We were chatting away… I’ve discovered that conversations during hikes with anyone you meet here in Mount Shasta are also quite different than those you’d most likely experience on most other mountains. A’shaya’s a massage therapist turned astrologer… and there was a lot chit chatting about this kind of chart, that kind of chart… what she’s experienced since she’s been here, where she’s going, and the spiritual/metaphysical experiences and practices I have and have had, as well.

So, we made it to the top of the trail we had aspired to climb… and took some time just laying on some beautiful layered rocks, enjoying the sunny, 80-degree, dry weather. Such peace and quietude; so much of nature! We had realized that it seemed we had a swarm of butterflies around us the entire time up the trail; their visits and frolicking continued around us while we sunned ourselves. Plus lizards, beautiful flowers in bloom around us… just pure beauty and quietude.

And just… space.

Typically, when I’m on a hike and find a spot like that, I really like to be still, listen, and FEEL… without chattering or much interchange (in fact, I often prefer to go alone); however, on Mount Shasta, with A’shaya happily chattering away, I found I could STILL enjoy the moment and the stillness while simultaneously engaging in the conversation without feeling like I was being interrupted. Again… so different than the “regular world”!

Once we’d gotten our fill of the spot we’d chosen, we started back. Yet, the paths seemed completely different; neither one of us could remember which way we’d come, through many forks and winding turns. We THOUGHT many of the choices looked familiar… for awhile. Then it seemed like the landscape had changed completely.

At some point, I started laughing and said, “Well… maybe we simply walked through a dimensional doorway, which is why it all looks different…” She laughed and agreed with me. Then we considered whether we’d really want to find our way back through… because it DID feel different. MORE space…  So, we decided to call on our friends, the elementals, to help guide us back to the house where we’re staying.

Right after we did that, we turned a corner, and there were two beautiful deer (shephards of the fairy realm) consorting in the wood… they jumped and bounded off in the opposite direction. So we followed…

The butterflies were still all around us… and yet, slightly ahead of us. We continued on their path.

Not to say we didn’t continue on in different twists and turns… we’d reinforce our request a few times (A’shaya had made the mistake of just asking for them to “lead us home”… I told her that was sort of a misleading request, since many would probably consider us home right there, on the mountain!)… and every time, a new path would light the way. And, as the trees are large on the mountain, there were times when we’d lose sight of the peak in the trees… and had to literally guess which was was down (because many of the paths led up).

Throughout this, we found we bonded. Neither of us ever got nervous, panicked, or upset about our predicament. In fact, the longer and further we went, the more fun we had with it. Yes, we got hot; yes, once our water ran out, we got thirsty (but I was VERY glad to have gotten a “nudge” in the grocery store last night to pick up a few protein bars for the hike, because THEY came in handy!)… but we just looked at it as a grand adventure, and pondered what we could learn from the experience. And we laughed… A LOT. We stopped saying that we might’ve taken “a wrong turn”… and just agreed that the many paths, regardless of which ones we chose, would eventually get us where we were going.

Our "Walking Staves of Light"

We picked out some great walking sticks, which we deemed our “Walking Staves of Light.” Though A’shaya was hesitant about using one in the beginning, she really bonded with hers when we started cutting through the hedge going downhill on beds upon beds of pine needles; they proved very useful.

At some point, we decided we must’ve been warriors in some indigenous tribe together in another life. It was then that we renamed ourselves the Warrior Goddesses of the Light… which of course worked well with our walking staff terminology! We even considered whether we should find some mud with which to paint stripes on our faces.

And, the butterflies led us on, staying around us… like we were in some sort of fairy tale.

Our variety of path choices became an exploration; a discovery of noticing when we could tell if a path that seemingly ascended actually turned into a descent; when we could start “reading” the mountain… and then we actually decided to start FEELING it, FEELING our way out.

After awhile I was really getting thirsty; I told A’shaya that it would be really, really nice if we could find a stream from which to drink… and then we could walk around for as long as we wanted without worrying about finding our way out. At some point, we started getting our bearings, and found the old railroad tracks that circle the mountain; since we had crossed the tracks in the beginning, we decided to just follow them until we saw a familiar spot. That never happened; what happened was that I finally spotted a paved road. So, we took a steep path down and came out into a park. We asked a few men who were walking across the manicured field where we were… we discovered we were a few miles from the house… one of the men looked at me and asked if we needed water, because there was a fountain from the springs right at the edge of our field. OK… so not a running stream… but the same meaning… and it was just as awesome (and absolutely refreshing)! What a perfect place to emerge from our play world!

After we explained that we’d sort of lost our way on the mountain, the passersby asked us if we needed a ride back to our house. We looked at each other, immediately understood without any words, and shook our heads, but thanked them for the offer. After they moved on, we agreed that we would see this adventure on foot, on our own, through the end… after all, we ARE the Warrior Goddesses of the Light!  🙂

And so, we made it back… in 5.5 hours instead of the planned 2… exhausted and dirty… but we’d never lost our sense of adventure and enjoyment of the journey, regardless of which path we took. We found humor and fun and playfulness in every turn… and we learned about each other; we learned about and celebrated our differences as well as our similarities, and we found that without any panic or sense of worry, that even though the path was longer than we had THOUGHT (even though my Higher Self obviously had it all under control… after all, I was at least prepared with those protein bars!)… we were given everything we asked for along the way.

We realized the amazing and wonderful messages that had come through for us on the journey… and how the real, all-encompassing message really was that it’s ALL about the journey itself.

After her 7-week period of solitude in Mount Shasta, A’shaya is moving to Florida in a week… and is seriously considering sending off her walking staff to Florida ahead of her, and then getting it sanded with just that engraved on it: “It’s ALL about the journey.” Because it really is.

How awesome is THAT?!

 

 

 

 

Steps to Remembering the Spiritual/Intuitive Black Belt in ALL of Us…

Share

I remember, years ago, when I first started in Tae Kwon Do, I was a “no belt”… not even a white belt. I would look at the black belts and think, “Wow… what a long, long way to go. Can I do that? Really? Will I be able to break a cinder block with my bare hands… and all of those other things required?” And actually, I had moments of thinking, “Can I do really do that… ME?”

Once I stopped (or rather, my ego stopped) obsessing about that “long-off” goal – even though there were black belts present through the process to be a physical reminder of that goal – when I focused on what was at hand, one belt at a time – there were 10 belts in between no belt and black belt – I did eventually BECOME a black belt; actually, I went beyond that and later attained a 2nd degree black belt! And, because I had worked tirelessly through the basics, one step at a time, by the time I got there – to that first black belt test – it was second nature to me, because I had a strong command of the basics. Not only that… but I had a lot of FUN doing it!

Often, it’s no less overwhelming when starting out on the path to actively developing our spirituality and remembering how to tap in to our Divinity – or, in common terms, learning to regularly and accurately access our Higher Self, intuition, psychic ability – whatever you want to call it.

Now, I will say that I was sort of “thrown in” to doing this work… initially, it wasn’t something I consciously (knew that I) chose at the time. I fell open like a book when I had what I call my Grand Awakening… and had NO IDEA what was going on… besides wondering if I was going schizophrenic LOL! Though I had accumulated the uncovering of one natural Divine ability after another over my life before that time, I’d always looked at them as the equivalent of “parlor tricks”… fun and cool… but just something I could do, nothing more, nothing less. (For a more detailed account, see In the Rabbit Hole We Go.)

Since I’m a problem solver – I love puzzles – when the Grand Awakening occurred, of course I was voracious in finding out what was going on… and once I did, then concentrated on how to focus and funnel the menagerie of abilities I had naturally uncovered! However, I never stopped to think about it… never really thought about whether I could really “do it,” how long it would take… what it would take, and what that would mean. Essentially, I had set it up for myself to be so distracted that I circumvented having those same feelings I’d had when looking at the black belts at the onset of practicing Tae Kwon Do.

However, don’t get me wrong… I DEFINITELY know that feeling!

Often, when I work with clients and students on developing their innate intuitive abilities in one form or another (or many), I get the “deer in the headlights” look when we first start talking about developing their skills… especially when I get a specific message about a particular innate strength of the person, communicate it to them…and that person has no idea about the strength that lies within them. It’s largely because the ego starts projecting immediately – “I can’t do that!” “What if I can’t do that?” “Who… ME? Who am I to be able to do that?”

So, I tell them… STOP.

It goes back to changing our perception from the glass is half empty to the fact that the glass is ALWAYS full (see Seeing the Glass COMPLETELY Full, and Taking From It What You Will); we just have to remember that it is!

How different do you think it would be for those starting martial arts if they were told at the onset, “You already ARE a black belt… coming here and doing this is simply going to help you get back in to practice to remember that…and each belt level is another level of remembrance that you’ve uncovered…” Sounds a lot easier than trying to reach for something outside of you, doesn’t it?

It’s the same thing in terms of our intuitive, “magical,” Divine abilities… we’re ALL Divine, we ALL have ALL of those abilities (I promise), regardless of where you are right now… it’s simply a matter of getting back in to practice to remember how to access them. So, we break it down, and generally work on fluency in one ability or set of abilities at a time… and all we need to do is start with gaining command of the MOST basic, yet MOST important ones – such as simply quieting the chatter of the ego and remembering that fluid connection with the Higher Self to know whether what presents itself to you is for your Highest/Best, and whether it’s Truth for you.
Back in Tae Kwon Do, there were others who started around the time I did that became black belts more quickly than I did… and some did it more slowly. But you know what? We all got there in the end; how long it took and what we did to get there individually didn’t really matter. Again, it’s the same in terms of our spiritual/intuitive development: Some of us just take a blind flying leap off the cliff (sort of like I did)… some stop to look and test the air and then parachute down… and many decide to take the train down to the bottom (or simply walk) instead of leaping. That’s OK; everyone’s at their own pace… this is one thing that is definitely NOT a competition, and there is no one RIGHT or WRONG way or time frame in which to do it! It’s individual to each and every one of us. We’ll ALL get there, eventually… every single one of us.

So, yes, though we should have an idea where we’re going and what our goals are in doing this work on ourselves, the key is to stop looking at (and comparing ourselves to) everyone else, note who’s present and who can assist us, and just simply BEGIN the journey…. do the work (or play, as I call it), at our own pace. Practicing – or, remembering – mastery of the very basics, one step at a time, also helps to remind us how to experience the joy and excitement of being present completely in the now, where we are as individuals today, as we allow every single beautiful petal of ourselves to open up, into the magnificent, brilliant, menagerie of the Divine that we all are!

Close Encounters… of the Pilot Mountain Kind…

Share

Over the past few years, I’ve written a few blog posts on visits to Pilot Mountain, NC (see Take One from Pilot Mountain… and Awakening Energy Center from 10/10 and also Take Two: SHOOTING Through the Door to an Expanded Reality on Pilot Mountain! from 11/10)… and I’ve had multiple other awesome experiences there that never made it as a blog post but are posted elsewhere on the site; particularly about receiving initialization to entrainment to the Trinity Energy I now use and teach (see Trinity Energy Progression and Healing for the whole story).

Suddenly, I’ve noticed a handful of people I know who have suddenly “just needed” to go to Pilot Mountain for a day (it’s a 2-hour drive from where I live)… one person I know just felt the pull one morning and went, on a VERY COLD winter day… I’ve had others ask me multiple times if I would go with them over the past month, and my initial reaction has been, “Um… no… it IS February, you know, sorta cold… let’s just plan for April or so…”

I should’ve known THAT would’ve come back to bite me in the butt!

About a week ago, I was in meditation, and heard, very distinctly, that I needed to go… ALONE (I’ve always had others with me before). I asked when… and understood it to be ASAP. Initially, I laughed, thinking about the recount of the client who went on that very cold day, and asked, “REALLY?” Yes… immediate and absolute, no questions asked. Later that day, I looked at the 7-day forecast for North Carolina, and saw that it would be spiking in temperature on Thursday (yesterday); I understood immediately that it was the day I was to go. So, I rescheduled my appointments/sessions, and cleared that day.

Several days before that came about, I’d been in a very active sleep state (common for me these days), and I knew I was doing some kind of energy work, talking with Guides, etc… when suddenly, I was half awake, and in my mind, saw an angel, very distinct, standing next to my bed. The angel leaned over and whispered loudly in my ear – as loudly as if a person here would have done – “OPEN YOUR EYES!” So, I did… lay there for a moment, adjusting my sight to the darkness, waiting to see something… and when I didn’t, I looked over at the clock… it was 3:33. I’m well aware of the multiple-number phenomena (Doreen Virtue has quite a bit on that, even if you Google it online), and how often non-3D Beings communicate with us here on the 3D via double, triple, and quadruple numbers… but I waited, and when I didn’t hear anything, thought, “Seriously? You WOKE ME UP to look at the clock at 3:33?” Then I rolled over and went back to sleep.

Within 24 hours, I was noticing double and triple digits almost EVERYWHERE… when I was working on something related to the Trinity Energy, I would see 3’s… needing some angelic support, 4’s… and a mix of 1’s, 2’s, and others. It quickly became really obvious that this was another way for me to receive guidance, sort of like the path was being shown to me. I had some rather amazing experiences “in the waking world” of synchronicity and just an amazing accuracy of details that would come in around that.  So, I realized that the “Open your eyes” message had to do with SEEING what was being SHOWN to me here… outside of meditation/connecting in or sleep.

So, fast forward to yesterday, and my trek to Pilot Mountain…

Every time I looked at the clock or something with numbers from when I woke up, there were doubles and triples in EVERYTHING. It was REALLY prominent… nothing I could just write off. In fact, I found myself laughing… because I felt completely accompanied! I could almost feel my “travel companions,” egging me on… “Let’s go! Let’s go!” I was gathering some hiking food, looked up at the clock… 9:33. Checked email; my main email account had 1122 messages (cumulatively)… I got on the road, and almost EVERY TIME I noticed the number on a license plate, there was a double or triple digit… I’d look over at a billboard on the side of the road; a phone number or some other number on the sign would have a triple digit. Seriously; by the time I was halfway there, I was laughing out loud in the car, feeling like I was being prompted again and again… playfully, like I could almost hear laughing. I would say, “OK, already! I’m going as fast as I can!”

Though it was due to be in the 70s, all morning and when I left, it had been dark gray, and it actually looked like it was going to rain. I never let if phase me. It stayed that way the entire trip… until I was about 15 minutes away. Then, the sky just parted, and the sun came out… and, just as I came around the curve where I could see Pilot Mountain approaching in the distance, there was one lone cloud left, and it made one of those odd shapes around Big Pinnacle on the mountain… which distinctly reminded me of many pictures I’ve seen of Mount Shasta, CA (a MAJOR energetic power center); I thought, “How odd…” and thought of stopping to take a picture… but I was being prodded on… so, this post has a picture that I created in PhotoShop, so you get the idea…

Anyway, got to the top parking lot, and noticed the temperature: 55 degrees. I pulled into a spot; it was 12:22. Seriously! I hesitated a moment at the temperature, though… I’d just worn jeans and a tank top with a thin button down open as cover. Hardly something for ’50s… but I just trusted I would be fine.

Feeling the welcoming energy of the mountain telling me, “Welcome home,” off I trod towards Big Pinnacle, where I love to climb up on the rocks, whichever way the mountain “shows me the steps”… no preconception in mind; hey, at the very least, I figured I’d get some AWESOME meditation and journaling time on the rocks! Something interested I’d noted: In the past, when I even got near the mountain, my back would “light up,” “go electric” – basically, a zap of energy to alert me to that power source. This time, I hadn’t felt that… however, I’d felt wide open from when I’d awakened that morning. Even as I approached Big Pinnacle, I was feeling pretty “normal”… but I knew there was something… slightly… different about that “normal” feeling.

When I first got to the base of Big Pinnacle, I looked up… it has quite the beautiful rock face, with many faces in the rocks. I was taken aback for a moment; I’d just been there a little more than 3 months ago – on 11-11-11 – and as I stood gazing on the Big Pinncle today, it seemed that there were many, many more faces in view. I noted that and pressed on… waiting for the guidance as to where to stop.

As I walked on, I suddenly started getting BARRAGED… with the presence of multiple Beings. It was so much that it was almost a buzz in my head… and I realized somewhere in there that instead of getting “the buzz,” as I call it, I somehow “changed my reality” there. Does that make sense? It was like I was in a dimensional doorway, and my body just adjusted. So, though I didn’t feel any different than “normal,” I started hearing a LOT… “Welcome back…” “This way…” “We KNOW you can hear us…” “Look over here…” etc. Typically in a state park, I would have thought they were elementals (and I have a blog to write about THAT from about a week ago… first things first)… however, I immediately KNEW that they were Star Beings.

Which, looking back now, makes sense about that weird cloud around the Big Pinnacle, doesn’t it? Many say Star Being ships or whatever cause those weird clouds… but it feels right.

What was interesting was that it wasn’t just ONE kind of Star Being… there were MANY different kinds there… almost an overwhelming many! “Testing the doorway”… something like that. So full of love; so full of happiness that we are finally to be united in THIS consciousness, and able to work together for the Higher Good!

So, I found the first “stopping place” I was guided to stop at… and I climbed all the way up and just sat there. I felt comfortable and at home. Some of the rocks were wet – so obviously it had rained – but it didn’t phase me in the least; every place I was guided to stop was dry (of course, right?). I sat there, on the first rock cropping at which I stopped, and just waited. I sort of marveled at how “normal” I felt… without the extra buzzing… yet I knew it was DIFFERENT. I knew something had changed. So I just waited; and then I heard, “Remember how to physically SEE and HEAR Beings – with your physical eyes and ears – who are focused at dimension higher than the 3rd…” I was like, OK… yes, like DUH… why haven’t I thought of THAT before? I realized I had some fears to clear out related to that, so I did that first, and then I did what was suggested to me… ran through a clearing to remember how to do that without impeding my ability to see and hear at the 3D level simultaneously, and everything else related. When I was done with that, I was told to move on. So I did.

I found the next area at which I was supposed to stop… this was funny, too. I had climbed off the path onto a mini path to the rocks to climb, and I suddenly heard, “SIT DOWN!” And so, I just did, right there, just as I saw a park ranger, walking around the bend on the path. I hadn’t even looked at where I was sitting; I simply had been a little bit startled by that loud kind of command, so I just did it. I landed on a nice pile of pine straw that was warmed by the sun and dry. And apparently, that spot was just perfectly situated so the park ranger was able to just walk by and not see me at all… and I think there was something additional to that… like I wasn’t quite ALL dense, or something like that… but he literally walked right in front of me, about 5 feet away, and though he’d been looking up on the rocks, he never even looked in my direction, never noticed my presence. I was hidden in plain sight.

I was like, “Hmm… interesting…” and wondered why that would matter (and just as quickly remembered all of the signs up there that say NO CLIMBING ON THE ROCKS…). So, I waited until he was gone, and then I continued up.

I got to the ledge where I was supposed to stop next, and THAT’S where I spent a good portion of time; it was there I was guided to simply just BE a part of the mountain, to meditate in Trinity Energy and meld with the mountain, and other meditative exercises. I don’t know how long I was there – probably way longer than the physical time record of it! THAT was absolutely wonderful; even though I was sitting right around the corner to the sun, in the shade, I felt warm and embraced and nurtured… at one point, though, I was deep in meditation, and a stiff, cold breeze whipped up, encircled me, and seemed to go right through me – however, it felt REALLY cleansing, and really good! After that, I just started journaling. And journaling… much of it was a conversation with the Star Beings. Somehow, I understood that it was important for me to have “the signature” of Pilot Mountain energy as the energy that awakened me. I remember that much… and I puzzled over it a little bit, tried to get irritated about it a little bit, but it seemed right, even though I couldn’t figure out WHY it was important.

From my journal:

I hear there are many Star Beings here… they were delighted with me all the way, playing the games with the numbers… all the more delighted that I NOTICED.

I have done the clearings, and have told them to show themselves to me.

I keep on seeing flashes of silver that are liquid in the air, barely there then gone. There was a moment, coming to this spot, when I saw an interesting combination of the sun’s rays… and it looked like the rays had hit the edge of something almost directly in front of me, for a moment making the outline of a shape… and then it was gone. I’ve seen it just off of this ledge a few times, too. So cool!

I also feel like they’re telling/showing me that they’re superimposed on the mountain… the rocks… the trees… the wildlife. As I just wrote that, a raven flew by, close enough to startle me, and it made an interesting sound as it was passing me, as if it were speaking to me.

When I was sitting here with my eyes closed, and I was HEARING them speak to me, I opened my eyes and suddenly saw 3 ladybugs (of course 3!)… just 3. I closed my eyes and opened them again… and the ladybugs were in very different placement, like I had recreated the scene… or they moved so I would NOTICE that they’d moved.

I’m hearing “It won’t be long…” For what? “Before the changes…”

…Somehow, it was important to anchor my heart with the mountain… I heard so all know at which power point I was awakened. ??? Don’t know why that matters. I’m NOT big on “tagging,” but it does feel important somehow…

 THIS was a funny comment… and a funnier “answer” I received…

 Sometimes I wonder… if all of this is just in my head. The response I get to that, loudly, is “If it were only in your head, you wouldn’t be here…. You know it isn’t.”  ??? Somehow that makes sense, but it isn’t quite logical, is it? And as soon as I think and then write that, I hear that quote between Harry (Potter) and Dumbledore: Harry: “Professor Dumbledore… how do I know that this isn’t all just in my head?” Dumbledore: “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry… but why on Earth should that mean that it is not real?”

It was a wonderful day… so beautiful, so peaceful… and besides everything else, being able to watch vultures, hawks, and ravens play in the current by their mountaintop nests, at eye level, far above the surrounding world was a wonderful respite!

I hadn’t taken my cell phone with me on the walk/hike… and was coming back down to Earth when I returned to my car. As I pulled off of the mountain and onto the highway I looked at the clock.. 2:22… by the clock, I was there EXACTLY 2 hours… though it felt MUCH longer! (Oh, and of course, the temperature? 66 degrees…)

Here’s what was really, really interesting on the way home…

I’m used to seeing tree auras, and it’s most prominent to me when I’m driving on the highway, probably because the trees line the road, and their auras simply meld and make these continuous “bubbles” in the air along the highway. I wasn’t even thinking about anything… I was still just enjoying the awesome weather, opened all the windows and just felt GOOD. Well, about 15 minutes after I left, I noticed… something. Movement in the air, where I would typically see the auras (however, they typically aren’t moving). So I looked up, and I realized that I saw this interesting movement throughout the entire sky… it was circular, and sort of shimmering, almost like I was SEEING a VIBRATION. I didn’t have to really do anything with my eyes – you know, like with the Magic Eye pictures, where you have to really relax the eyes to see the 3D picture –  it was easy for me to see with my “normal” vision. I wondered if it had to do with the clearing I did at the mountain…

It feels like it was some part of the “veil” (for lack of a better word) between the overlays of the dimensions that are coming together! I suddenly knew why so many are seeing “scenes” and “pictures” in the clouds, so clearly… because that’s the easiest place for us to SEE through the doorway! When I was on open road (no cars too close to me in case I drifted a little LOL), I looked at the movement thing (whatever it is), into the clouds, and I knew I could… just… about… see… through… it… so interesting!

I’m just amazed at how this journey continues to morph and develop… and the understandings I’ve “remembered” over the past several years are actually starting to happen, here in the physical world! When I was on the mountain yesterday, I suddenly remembered, seemingly out of the blue, how when babies are born, it takes their eyes around three months to focus in  on anything more than a few inches in front of their faces. And somehow that’s connected; will it take around three months for my “sight” and “hearing” to fully adjust? Who knows?

What I DO know: Three months takes me to the end of May… and it’s June when I’m being guided to take my trip to visit Mount Shasta… so very, very interesting…and the journey continues…  🙂

Seeing the Glass COMPLETELY Full, and Taking From It What You Will…

Share

Twice in the past month, when doing an “energetic share” (where a practitioner and I will swap a session with each other), I’ve had two different spiritual practitioners tell me they’ve seen lightning bolts coming out of my hands. In one session, the practitioner saw me flying a Pegasus and then actually BECOME the one flying… and I was shooting firebolts at the masses, to help them heal in a very powerful way. I was told, at first, many looked scared, because it was so unusual, so “out-of-the-ordinary,” and so powerful… but then as they realized it was HELPING them, they embraced it. For the second session, the other practitioner told me he saw me pulling energy like lightning through my body, and out of my hands, and it was very powerful and very healing.

How cool is THAT?

Not too long ago, I was gifted with remembrance of a beautiful, powerful progression and healing energy to bring forward to as many as possible (see more about Trinity Energy). How much more powerful can you get than tapping into energy of the Divine Mother, Divine Father, and Divine Child – the Christ Consciousness – that’s within all of us?

So, some might ask, “What makes YOU so special? Why would YOU get that energy to share?”

And my answer is, “I am the Divine; why WOULDN’T I get that energy to share?”

OF COURSE I can do that… OF COURSE I can BE that… OF COURSE I deserve that…

The point is, we ALL can.

Throughout this existence, we’ve done such an awesome job convincing ourselves that we’re not “special”… we’ve disempowered ourselves to believe that power comes from outside of us, that the Divine is outside of us, that OTHERS are far more gifted than us, far more special, that there can only be “a few” special ones… and that it’s only a very, very, very special someone who can do certain “magical” things. So, we’ve pretty much decided that the glass is half empty as a human, and that being human is being “merely human”… and we’ve created the word “imperfect” in reflection of that. Look around you: Even supposedly inspirational quotes say, “I embrace my imperfections…” or “I accept that I’m ONLY human…” and other similar wording.  So, though that fills the glass a little more – with the positive intention – it still comes up a bit short.

It’s time for us to remember that we are all part of the Oneness; and in being part of the Oneness – whatever you call it, the Divine, God, Spirit, Creator, Universal Life Force, or about a dozen other names – we are all a part of the Divine.

Here’s how I understand it, in an extremely abbreviated Cliff Notes (or Wiki) version:

The Divine – Divine, Unconditional Love – is all-encompassing, eternal, and everlasting. And, just as part of BEING, we decided we wanted to EXPERIENCE. And so, we created the illusion of separating from the Divine. In doing that, we set up the concept of the individual soul – simply a partitioned part of the Divine – to pretend that we’re NOT the Divine (although there is no real possibility of NOT being the Divine, because we just ARE).  We set up the concept of splitting up even further – into “more parts within a soul” – forming soul families – and we decided what we wanted to experience, created the Laws to rule the concept of experience and how to experience (including, among a bazillion others, the concept of the Law of Duality and the Laws of Time), and then each “partition” – each soul, regardless of what  – decided on which experiences it wanted in this existence. In doing so, we created the “packages” and forms that we would take to be able to have certain experiences… then we created a whole bunch of different ways to pretend to break apart even further – into gender, into Twins – and even more ways to package ourselves differently to have the experiences we created.

It’s absolutely the most complex, multi-dimensional, holographic game of chess EVER! Only, we all “win”… we all get all the experiences we choose!

So, in setting out on our paths to experience, to create this existence, to create this dimension, this world, and our “Universe,” we – as whatever individuals and whatever parts of individuals and parts of soul families we’re pretending to be – decided all of the “packages” we’d have to create for ourselves to have all of those experiences. This brings about the concept of multiple lifetimes… being packaged EXACTLY the way we desire so we could have EXACTLY the experiences and lessons we desire to have. If we were packaged one way, in one situation, ever, how much would we ever really learn, as Divine Beings? Very little.

And, once we’re all done with our experiences, we start to remember who we are, we remember that we’ve never left, that we’ve ALWAYS been the Divine… that we are ALWAYS all-powerful and all-love, and we come back together in consciousness, each level in itself and then all of us together as One, to compare notes, to understand the experiences… and to create a NEW existence with NEW experiences (except, oh, yeah, there really IS no time, so we’re actually sort of doing ALL of it, ever, simultaneously, from the perspective of the Divine that we are).

Pretty big, hunh?

Don’t spend too much time (LOL) thinking too much about the details here… the point to considering this is simply to maybe provide a slightly different perspective on the way we look at things. Simply put: We are ALWAYS the Divine… we have never left, we have never separated… we’ve done this perfectly, as the Divine does. EXACTLY in the bazillion ways we planned. We’re starting to flex our muscles again, to wake up and realize, “Oh, YEAH… I AM all of this; I have it ALL inside of me, all the time… and it’s all mine to be accessed!”

And when you start to see things that way, you realize… well, the glass isn’t HALF full; it’s actually BRIMMING OVER THE TOP full, all the time, always… and we CHOOSE to be who we are, what we are, to do what we do, to experience and learn lessons the way we do, to SEE things through the filter of the experiences and lessons we’ve chosen… and then, as we resolve and finalize all of that, we can remember all that we’ve forgotten… and that every single one of us – EVERY SINGLE ONE – is just another part of ourselves.

If every single one of us is a part of ourselves, and we’re all a part of the Divine – well, we’re all Divine. It’s not that none of us are special… it’s that ALL of us are special, ALL of us are perfect… because we’re “doing” this existence exactly in the way we’ve chosen, as our part of the consciousness of the Divine. But, also, the more we remember our Divinity is within, the more we can realize that we all can do ALL of it… and better yet, we can access and use it in our very unique, exquisitely beautiful ways.

And then, the realization comes that we’re ALL perfect… just the way we are. Right now, this second. We’re taking the paths we planned to take, in the way we’ve planned to take them. All of a bazillion… or so. How incredible is THAT?

You might say, “If I’m perfect, then what motivation do I have to improve myself, to change, or to change directions/paths?”

Because we built ourselves to be that way, too! That’s a huge part of the ego’s role…  to keep us moving in one way or another through our lessons; plus, it’s a huge part of the “Laws” that we’ve created as part of this “game.” Don’t get me wrong: If you want to just be, you can just be… and, if your soul is completely done with its lessons in this existence, that might be all you need to do. If not, you’ll just be back around again in another package, in a different way. Your Higher Self is all about that!

So, the next time you say, “I’m only human…” or “I’m imperfect…” just remember that you’re only seeing the glass half empty because it’s been your CHOICE in the lessons you’re learning to see it that way. But that’s really the illusion… and if you brought that glass to your lips and took a drink of the Universe… you’d absolutely realize that the glass is completely full. Not only that, but you can change what kind of liquid is in there, as well as its color, its taste… well, you get what I mean.

Now…you can just repeat after me:

I AM PERFECT AS I AM.
I AM A PART OF THE DIVINE.
I AM THE DIVINE.
I AM.

In lak’ech ala k’in.  🙂

 

On Humor… Connecting In… and Punch-Buggies

Share

I love the punch-buggy game.

In all reality, I’d completely forgotten about it, until one of my kids picked it up from one of their friends… and it’s been a family-wide “battle to the death” in my family ever since!

So, for those who are un-enlightened on this game, here’s a simple explanation: While in the car, whenever you see a VW Beetle on the road – driving, parked, in a parking lot, etc. – you get to (playfully) punch someone else in the car, while simultaneously yelling, “(The color) punch-buggy… CAN’T PUNCH BACK!” Because, of course… you don’t want to get a punch back from anyone else in the car! We’ve also added some odd nuances… 2 punches for a convertible, 2 punches for a “classic model”… and I’ve actually added in the rule that car dealerships aren’t allowed (so there aren’t 20 punches going around when passing a VW dealership! LOL).

Such an odd game that’s been around for YEARS… but yet, no matter what’s going on in my family – whether someone’s irritated at someone else, or simply in a cranky mood – a simple “punch buggy” passing by sends it all to the wayside, and before you know it, we’re all smiling and/or laughing.

I love humor – jokes, laughter, light-heartedness, playing – and that’s carried over into working in the spiritual world. From the beginning, I’ve communicated with my guides as they are my sisters, brothers, best friends – which they are – and in turn, they’ve communicated in the same manner with me. In fact, it was made clear to me early on in my active spiritual quest that in actuality, humor and playfulness actually opens up the channels even wider… because it provides additional means to receive messages and understandings from “the expanded Universe.”

Humor and playfulness also relaxes us. In its pure form, it comes from love… and if love is the only true Absolute in the Universe (which I’ve been made to understand/remember), then OF COURSE it fits into expanding our connectedness and spirituality! Now, I won’t go into the whole line of “humor” that’s been displayed by my guides and higher self in terms of puns and duplicitous meanings – it’ll be some other time that I’ll tell you more about a 3-week sudden infestation of tiny ants in my house that ended abruptly right after a visit from one of the archangels, who said to me, “About those ants… feeling a bit ‘antsy’ lately?” followed by a burst of laughter that was simply pure love…. and the absolutely amazing and witty banter that I’ve had on occasion with Jeshua and Ezekiel and others (and for those who don’t think that Jeshua would be witty and funny… think again, he’s got THE BEST sense of humor! LOL)… and how much I love, love, LOVE it when I’m talking out loud with a friend, and a witty or snarky comment is made, and I suddenly hear this thunderous laughter by one or more of my (or the other person’s) Guide family. It’s during THOSE moments when I sometimes feel like my heart is going to burst from the love that comes through from that. It’s such a HUGE feeling… there’s no real word for it, but to say it’s MAGNIFICENT and AMAZING is barely touching on the feeling of it.

Now, though my norm is a very laid-back, light, and fun approach to all of this, what I do as part of my “job” is connect with many others and work with them through their blocks, ailments, and other limiting thoughts, words, and actions. And because I care so much about those with whom I’m working, because I’ve come into the habit of connecting with them heart-to-heart, sometimes there are moments – most often, when I’m alone and “in between” activities – that I reach out to seek what it is we haven’t touched upon, what it is that we’ve “missed,” when I’m working with someone (or myself) to get past a particularly stubborn piece that doesn’t want to be released. And, sometimes those are the moments that provide concern and a little stress.

Well, back to my punch-buggies. It was funny; for several weeks, I was consciously noticing that though I might see 1 or 2 punch-buggies while someone was in the car with me, it was during the times when I was alone with my thoughts in the car that I’d suddenly see 3 or 4 in a row. I even commented to my husband about it in jest… asking if I could just make a list and get everyone later on, because it just wasn’t fair! LOL Then, one day, I was driving alone along an open stretch of road, focusing intently on some issues related to a client and a few friends, when I briefly snapped out of my distraction because I saw a bright orange punch-buggy, sitting at the corner of an intersecting road. And I swear, I heard some laughing. It was then, I thought, “Really? It’s the lot of YOU playing punch buggy with me?” I laughed out loud, and then thought, “Well, then… if that IS the case, then… hmm… OK, when I come around this next bend, there will be another one…” A few seconds later, when I got to that bend, wouldn’t you know that there was a black punch-buggy, right there, coming the other way? I laughed again, and thought, “OK, one mo’ time… at the next intersection…” Do you have to wonder at this point? Of course there was one sitting at the light at the next intersection!

At first, I was wondering how the heck playing a form of punch-buggy with my Guides made any sense whatsoever… and I immediately heard, “Lighten up! We’re here with you, you’ve got it covered… no worries!” It was then that I realized that I saved much of that kind of intense “thinking” for driving alone in the car… and it was my Guides’/Higher Self’s playful way of pulling me away from bringing myself down, getting sad or sometimes frustrated, unnerved, or doubtful…

So now, when when I’m driving alone in the car and get lost in thought, and suddenly a bright-colored punch-buggy suddenly pops into view (and really, they don’t typically let it ride with just one punch-buggy; typically I’ll suddenly see several in a span of a few minutes when this happens), I GET IT – I let it go, let it flow, and get back “in the game.”

Because the BEST part of all of this is really knowing how much support and how much love we ALL have in every moment of every day… and that the more we lighten up, the more fun we can have with our journey… and the more we can see things without bringing ourselves and our vibrations down.

So, take note the next time a pattern of “strange humor” pops up in your life… and use that as a nudge to remember, allow it to flow, allow it to be joyful, fun, and adventurous… and you’ll be helped to keep it there, all the way!
