Beyond the Misnomer of “Being Happy vs. Being Right”

RightWrongIn the 5-minute drive on the way home from the gym early this morning, I was listening to a conversation between two radio personalities; it was a man and a woman talking about how important it is to get to the place of “being happy vs. being right” in a relationship. I’ve recently seen a lot of quotes around this on social media, too.

I know it’s well meant – finding a way to get from a place of battling and competition to a place of peace in a relationship – however, from a higher consciousness perspective, such a strategy is only partially productive, and it can often shift our limitations to a completely different and just as self-limiting of an angle instead of liberating us from them, to truly allow ourselves to exist in happiness, both individually and together.

Let’s shift this… just… a… little… bit… by considering a few points that are often overlooked in this context:

  • “Right” and “wrong” are judgments created and held by the ego via separation/duality and the filter of one’s individual journey. Thus, the perception of such is different from individual to individual. When we base any decision on “who’s right” or “who’s wrong,” we’re doing so on a very personal, filtered, judgmental basis. In actuality, it’s comparing apples to oranges!When looking at it from this perspective, it’s exclusionary and limiting to judge someone else’s truth (and thus, their “right” and “wrong”) based on our own! No matter what the relationship, if we’re doing that, we’re holding the other individual to a standard that we hold based on a sum of experiences that they haven’t had (even if you’ve been married for 50 years); we’re also expecting them to make our truth more important than their own! Ultimately, it’s not the job of anyone else to hold the truth of our journey… only their own.We’ve fully saturated ourselves in this separation-based power struggle; in doing so, we’ve decided that we value ourselves based on others following what we personally believe to be “right” and “wrong,” and what “battles” we’ve won… or often, how we’ve managed to assert our truth onto someone else.

    One of the biggest limiting habits we hold in this context is that we often

    a) force our own belief/experience of what is “right” onto someone else, in the effort to make them accept it as their own, or

    b) allow someone else to project and enforce their own belief/experience of what is “right” onto ourselves, essentially giving up that piece of our own truth and journey as not as important or valuable as the other person’s.

    It’s a constant swing of the pendulum in many traditional relationships, in any presentation via this existence of duality. Mine, yours, yours, mine, etc. Change of power, change of situation, change of individual filters… and it swings yet again, often off in a different direction.

  • What “being happy” in a relationship actually means. We often focus so much effort and energy on making another person happy in a relationship that we forget the primary importance of our own happiness. I can’t tell you how many clients I’ve seen who, when I ask what makes them happy, they reply, “Making my ______ (spouse, kids, family, etc.) happy.” (And make no assumptions here; I’ve heard this from men just as often as I’ve heard it from women!)Energetically speaking, putting the importance of someone else’s happiness above our own  energetically says that our own happiness – and thus, our own journey – isn’t as important as someone else’s. This is also most often well-meant, with the belief that this shows how much we care or love them; however, it’s still exclusionary and limiting to at least one person in the party! This might be fine for a few weeks, a few months, a few decades… however, at some point, the pile of self-sacrifice will get so big – even built on what often starts out as small – that it will create a personal crisis, and/or a crisis in the relationship, because the relationship becomes so emotionally imbalanced that something breaks. This manifests in a variety of ways, for one or both parties involved: It can lead to depression, adultery, anger/animosity, heightened self-esteem issues, and on the other end, toddler-like entitlement (at the expense of the other) and overdominance. These are the points at which many of my clients come in to see me; they often have a long, built up resentment of the partner, of themselves, of the relationship, or any/all of the above!

HoldinghandsSo, what would be the higher perspective of this? How would we evolve our relationships beyond this, for a truly enjoyable, high vibrational experience?

  1. Find, know, and continuously cultivate your own happiness, first and foremost. So often, I start with asking someone, “What brings you pure joy – without dependence on another person to give it to you (like a child, spouse, etc.)?” There are a surprising amount of people I’ve encountered who don’t even know the answer to that simple question! I often have to refrain the question to, “If you were all by yourself, and you could do anything you wanted to be happy with the exception of having other people around you, what would you do?”And still, sometimes I get a blank look and, after a pause, the guilty confession: “I don’t know.”When we board an airplane, we have to listen to the safety guidelines at the beginning of the flight. What does the flight attendant say about those oxygen masks, should they fall from the ceiling? “Secure the oxygen mask on yourself first, before helping anyone sitting next to you…” 

    This is a GREAT analogy about finding our own happiness; the kind that comes from within. Another one is that eventually, a well runs dry when it’s not nourished and rejuvenated regularly. How can we give a true outpouring of love to others if we only have a limited amount of love within ourselves?

    Also, as much as it’s important to know what makes you happy… it’s just as important to DO what makes you happy! Do you like sunrises? The ocean? Going for a walk around a lake? Stopping in a flower garden to admire the flowers? Do you have a hobby or anything you like to do that stills the mind and opens the heart? When was the last time you did anything of the sort to immerse yourself in the experience? It’s only important that YOU do it (and completely optional for anyone else to do it with you); expecting a partner to like everything you do is, again, projecting your “truth” onto them. Likewise for them; it’s only important that they take time to do the things that bring them joy, as well… free of expectation that you have to do it with them!

    Of course, part of a relationship is sharing, so experiencing together is great; maybe you both have many commonalities in what brings you joy… and you can of course explore that together, too!

    Overall, remember the sense of self-love (which means honoring your own journey) is the heightened vibration with which to come to a relationship; if we make it a priority to nurture, nourish, and grow our own happiness, we come to a relationship with the vibration of purely enjoying the other person, vs. needing them to fill some gap we believe we have, and vice versa.

  2. Honor each other’s journey and each other’s truth, without judging what’s “right” and “wrong.” Sounds easy, right? Yet, it can be one of the most limiting dances we play with each other in a relationship! Can we disagree? Absolutely! It’s actually very healthy for both in a relationship to stand in their truth, even when it’s different from each other. When we honor each other as having the perfect journey for our purposes, we come to the table respecting each other and in partnership – equally – while respecting ourselves (which comes from a strong sense of self-love; thus, see number 1, above!). The key is to know our own truth, be confident in it, and still consider and honor the truth of someone else, even if it’s different.That’s when we really begin to listen – and hear – to each other.When we come to the relationship from a conscious perspective of self-love and mutual respect, we’re actually more open to disagreement and seeing things from a higher perspective, to more easily come to a middle ground where each individual still gets to maintain their truth while functioning together to agree upon what’s highest and best in that situation that plays out together.
  3. Shifting the focus of our negative emotions from projecting/blaming another to taking responsibility for our own trigger points and negative emotions. No one makes us feel a certain emotion – regardless of what they do – except for ourselves! So ultimately, it goes back to self-awareness and self-love: If we’re good with ourselves and where we are, the other person can leave the toothpaste cap all they want, they can leave their dirty clothes anywhere, and it will all be just fine!Try this next time you get irritated at someone else: Ask yourself, “Why do I care?” Keep on asking that question (questions to the questions) until you get to a place of full self-responsibility; it often comes down to beliefs around self-worthiness (self-love, or lack of) in some way, shape, or form!

These are some very basic ways we can fundamentally change our relationships, away from the separation-based version to the unity-based version. Instead of considering relationships – all of them – as a battle of some sort, a hierarchy of some sort, what if we came to the table in a place of love, unity, and mutual respect? Then instead of spending so much energy asserting or sacrificing, we allow ourselves and each other to be the best each of us can be in the reflection of our relationship!

If you’re looking for help with any of this, whether for yourself only or in a relationship, contact me for some sessions! I’ve worked with a number of individuals and couples to help them navigate through the relationship matrix in a very different manner than is traditional; away from a place of limitation and lower vibration to a place of joy, collaboration, and higher spiritual consciousness.

The Heart of World Matters

HeartWorldOver the past number of years, I’ve had repeated glimpses into what we’re creating in this world… and glimpses of what’s to come. I haven’t publicly spoken about it much in terms of the literal picture to more than a few others… because visions can be metaphorical, they can be representations, they can be from other timelines, and most of all, they can distract us from looking at what’s right in front of us, in this moment… because it’s this moment that’s what counts, what exists, what presence is all about.

Until recently, those who’ve asked me what I’ve “seen” of the future, and/or if what I see is the same as ____________ [insert any name here] who has published their own visions, have typically gotten a reply from me about THIS moment instead.

From the beginning of what I call my “Grand Awakening,” when being “reminded” of what I ultimately came here to do, I was shown – or rather, helped to remember – what we have planned here at this time… as we finally complete the cycle of peaking in remembrance without crashing from lessons of the ego (which we’ve done a number of times over the eons).

One of the most challenging things for the ego to allow is the remembrance that our entire existence, all that is around us, is our creation. It’s full self-responsibility – lucid dreaming on a Universal scale, that we are the Dreamer as much as the Dreamed. The Divine Consciousness (or any one of a handful of other names) expressed as who we are. More and more, we’re even creating discoveries in our sciences – particularly quantum physics – that show us this in a way that the analytical mind can better accept, including researched proof (over and over) that intention creates our reality, and that love within is THE healer and true, interminable power of all.*

We just forget that in the exploration of separation… especially when we’ve forgotten that we are the Dreamer, with many, many different dreams, simultaneously running within the larger ones (think about the movie “Inception” to the max!).

We are all One, split up into the innumerable facets of this amazing, Universal gemstone. Here, incarnate on Earth, the part of our individual consciousness that resides in the physical body forgets that… that’s been a part of the game, part of this experiment of extreme separation, of creation via separation.

We’re at the verge of the end of yet another cycle; and so, the question many who are consciously aware of it ask is, How do we do it differently this time, to finish this once and for all?

Some have believed that we wouldn’t need some sort of collective catalyst to help wake us up within the dream; my understanding has been that we would… it just depended on the size of the catalytic event or set of events that had to happen. AND – most of all – that to break the cycle, to complete this and move on, what would be different wouldn’t be to avert the catalyst, but simply to act differently through it.

Yes, some have chosen to “wake up” later on in the game, but we put the catalyst in place to ensure that the hangers on would have quite the loud alarm clock… and still have a chance to adjust and align all consciousness within the whole to move forward.

For the past several years, I’ve received the message, again and again, to remain the calm in the storm. I’ve had trial after trial around me, I’ve taught it (or reminded it) to others who’ve been waking up to who we all are.

That message has repeated itself to me again and again. The purpose? If one stays the calm in the storm, remembering that regardless of what we see around us is a dream, and we are all but one Divine Consciousness… then we can stay in a place of clarity, acceptance, and love… knowing that all is perfect, trusting that we know exactly where we’re to be, and when, to optimize what one would call the ultimate soul’s purpose. Ultimate attainment!

All that I’ve been guided to teach – connecting to one’s own Higher Self via quieting the chatter of the ego (which was created to explore separation and identity) – as simple as it is (meditate, meditate, meditate) is the answer… because it allows us to remember that we already have full access/remembrance to all of the answers within us!

Staying the quiet in the storm means allowing the stillness to remain within, always. Stillness allows us the conscious remembrance and connection to our Higher Consciousness, the Higher Consciousness of the Universe… and the higher in consciousness, the purer the answer comes in love, which in essence, is Truth.

For the past several weeks, the consistent message about staying the calm in the storm shifted slightly, to BE unconditional love, always… all thoughts, words, and deeds. And the only way to truly do that is to fully accept and embrace that each one of us is equally Divine, equally worthy, and equally a message – expressed as who we are and what we do – as a facet of the whole. Each of us has a very different reminder to bring to all of us, as the mirror back to what’s within, as the Dreamer. 

The more self-exploration, the more resolution, the more acceptance, peace, and love we can explore and employ within ourselves (some would call that healing, but I simply call it remembrance), the more that is reflected back to us from what’s in the world around us.

Hate doesn’t “cure” hate. Violence doesn’t solve anything; it creates more separation. The glorification and romanticism of militaries going off to kill one people in sacrifice for “protection” of another – because of a belief of what’s “right” and what’s “wrong” (including religious beliefs) – only ultimately grows separation and hate through killing; we’ve proven that again and again. I’ve worked with a number of military and ex-military with PTSD from the internal battle they have within themselves, because even though they’ve at some time bought the excuse and propaganda that killing some to “protect” others is right, there’s a part of them that knows they’re still killing others. So, then… why do we continue to perpetuate it? War will never be the answer to love and peace… we’ve repeated THAT lesson again and again! The way to truly shifting to a peaceful way is to remember that beyond these meat jackets we call physical bodies, we are all the same, that we are all of the Divine Consciousness, the Dreamer of the Dream… and even what the ego judges and considers the most despicable individuals are also a part of our Self. Time to embrace that, too.

Time to turn the tables, release the idea of victimhood, and ask ourselves, “If having is an indication of wanting (meaning I have something in my reality because I created it)… then why would I want to create this in my reality?”

THAT’S what’s for us to do differently!

From the higher perspective, we never just have a Game Plan A, B, and C… we actually have far, far more than that; more like down to and beyond Game Plan WWWW, XXXX, YYYY, and ZZZZ….and every step along the way that we ignore the messages, the bigger the reminder gets. It starts within each individual, then ramps up to groups, communities, and eventually the entire collective of Earth, and beyond. I don’t know about you… but I’d prefer the little reminders, myself, vs. what I call the explosions! Thus, the true importance of looking within to change all that is based in separation and resistance – fear, anger, regret, resentment, anxiety, guilt, doubt, sorrow, pain, judgment, shame, frustration – is vital, if we’d prefer to prevent the “big bang.” And, even though things are getting a bit heated on the collective level in the 3D, there’s always the opportunity to shift its volume and impact via what we do when we stop projecting what’s inside onto others, and instead looking in the mirror at ourselves, first and foremost.

So, many ask, “What you’re saying is that those who have died, those who are considered the perpetrators, volunteered to do this, created this themselves… and they are both the same?” Yes. They’re me; and they’re you. They are the pieces – the individuals – who stepped up and said, “Yes! If we get to Plan ______ and we need to start having collective reminders, I will be one who takes part in that play!” To them, we owe a mountain of gratitude and love… for taking on the role they agreed to take on.

The best way to honor them for their role is to turn our focus back in on ourselves; to shift from a place of separation to a place of perceiving the whole, and of coming from a place of love in knowing that, always. Accepting all as the crucial note in the symphony of this experience that they are, including your Self… and knowing for as many options to play out as there are in response via separation, that the one via unity – that of love – is far stronger, has more true impact, and essentially renders violence, hate, and fear useless, recognizing them as the illusion that they are.

Mari is the basic name of the goddess found throughout the Mediterranean region, and Isis-Mari is her Egyptian name. Like Mary of the Christian tradition, she is a vast cosmic sky goddess as well as an earth mother goddess. In the Egyptian tradition, she was associated with a star which was the source of love and light radiating from her heart.

In the Egyptian tradition, she was associated with a star which was the source of love and light radiating from her heart.

In backing up and looking at the much, much larger picture, I actually find it so incredible how we have this message smacking ourselves right in the face. How, you ask? Well… it is the TRUE energy of unification – the Oneness – that is represented by the Universal Divine Mother. It’s that energy within us and of which we exist that reminds us that the true answer is in unity, in looking within and remembering our Oneness and unconditional love. And here on Earth, we are at a point where we have SUCH a literal representation of the reminder of the Divine Mother via the name of the one of the currently prominent terrorist groups – ISIS – when the Ancient Goddess Isis is a representation of the Divine Mother in the form of a reminder (a big, honking mirror to us) of the importance of spiritual development within through the representation of such a lack of that. Could we be more literal???

The world events are just beginning to ramp up, as the alarm clock goes off; I understand this is just the beginning; it will get louder and more intrusive the longer we ignore it… and there’s no snooze button anymore!!! The resounding message: Do it differently; look within instead of projecting without. Remember that if we weren’t a part of this in some way… then it wouldn’t be created. Self responsibility is remembering that as we are the Dreamer as well as the Dreamed… and also that we CAN change the dream, at any time! First and foremost, our biggest priority is finding/remembering self-love, acceptance, and redirecting the ego’s job from that of separation and projection to one of ensuring that all thought, word, and deed support remembering, existing in, creating from, and emanating the Oneness in unconditional love while still maintaining the individuals that we are. Yes, it will take some focus; yes, it will take looking in the mirror at what the ego has formerly perceived as pretty uncomfortable stuff. Ultimately, it’s our quickest path to transcending this experience of such extreme separation, war, and (self-)destruction to take a new path – finally – and see what our new creation can bring in a much higher vibration!

 

Need assistance? It’s my life’s dedication to help others help themselves, to remember their Divinity, that we are ALL the psychic/intuitive and the healer… that we “heal” ourselves, that we create our own reality… and to help get past blocks based in traditional beliefs that limit our experience.

Heeding My Own Words on My Journey…Listen, Listen, Listen!

magicalbookSMDoing what I’ve volunteered to do as my life’s work is quite the incredible and magnificent journey! And yet… as magical as it is, as well beyond the day-to-day 3D, I still find I’ve had some very 3D fears, resistance, and experiences with which I’ve limited myself at some very crucial points.

One of my fortes is writing and communication; I find it easy and flowing… and I also know how to consciously incorporate the telepathic meaning/information well beyond the words I use. My calling to “write the books” about all of this – all of what I discuss, teach, experience in relation to helping others to remember the Universe in some ways very differently than we have previously – has been continuously pushing at me via Higher Consciousness for several years; I have far, far more to share than what I’ve even portrayed in many public forums!

However, I’ve procrastinated.

“Too much to do!” I would proclaim, again and again, every time it came through in meditation, or via message through others. Or, “It will be out of date as soon as it’s published!” Or innumerous other excuses! I would put time aside to write… and write something else (like a blog LOL), update my Website, make a few calls… well, you get the idea. I’ve written much of it in drawers full of journals, and… nothing yet has made it to the light of day beyond smatterings and discussion and verbal teaching.

I KNOW better; listening to guidance is what I teach as the CORE!

However, I’ve been putting off guidance, time and again… continuously on this for years. This is so funny, because I look back over it now, and laugh at myself (one the best tools for accepting ourselves).

What I continuously talk about and teach, all the time, is how when we ignore true guidance – that which comes from the Higher Self (vs. the ego) – it always starts with a little nudge – a little message, reminder, whatever you want to call it. The more we ignore those nudged, the little messages… the bigger they get. “Can you hear me now?” The Higher Self asks… and it doesn’t stop turning up the volume until the guidance/knowing is followed.

This is why we eventually manifest crises into our lives; we’ve ignored a nudge and the messages so much (typically because in some way, shape, or form the ego is uncomfortabe because of SOME resistance-based belief that it holds) that the Higher Self, the Universe, the Divine, however you want to term it, FINALLY has to kick you in the butt in a way that you CAN’T. DO. ANYTHING. ELSE.

Again, I know better.

I’ve gotten through gobs and gobs… and my experiences are truly miraculous and magical. I’ve started an amazing practice and modality around this – in accordance to HUGE guidance (see more about Trinity Energy Progression here); it never steers me wrong! All in all, I trust my guidance fully; it’s the waning ego’s moments of control that cause me to not DO something when I’m guided to do it.

And yet… here I am.

A pattern of limitation and blockades has turned up in my reality, regardless of all efforts to circumvent them. What started happening defies an explanation…. EXCEPT that I’ve finally gotten to a level of denial that I’ve been kicked in the butt! My ego… has been kicking and screaming and looking every which way but at the white elephant in the room, until now.

Enough screwing around with this, says the Higher Consciousness. Time to write, and REALLY share this Remembrance!

I had to look long and deeply at myself, and also simultaneously zoom out to the larger picture at the entire pattern. In doing that, I realized that this is ALMOST EXACTLY what happened when my guidance kept pushing me to close down my former business and do this work – my higher calling – in 2010. How could I have been so blind to it? I’m one of the most adept at seeing the messages, putting together the jigsaw puzzle! (Actually, I do already know that answer, and it’s a three-letter word: E-G-O.)

This is SO my heart; why would I deny this? Again, I had to look at whatever was left… because there really wasn’t much! And what was left was… this is the final layer; this is what’s completely inside. This is completely opening in full Truth, full vulnerability, full acceptance of me and my Remembrance. ALL of it! That’s the ONLY WAY for me to write this series of books that I’m to write, with a completely open, completely Divine heart. Put whatever excuse to it I want, this is IT.

Sounds simple, right?

So, last week I surrendered, after a number of fits and frustrations.

Whatever shifted caused me to look at this and say to myself, “WHY have I let this go so long? This is my heart…” And then I realized that the reason I did was BECAUSE this is my heart!

I’ve now blocked time to do it. Three days so far, one hour/day, 3,500 words. And, I have a LOT more time blocked to write this week… and moving forward.

I started four days ago.

I found my writing spot… at a lake near my home, quiet and a very, very nice vibration! For some reason, it all feels effortless there.

As I should have known, as soon as I started writing, I would receive such a show of support in multiple ways from the Universe and my Higher Self (in some very humorous ways, I might add).

Day 1:

The lake is about 2 miles around, and it’s rather cut off right now because there’s some extreme road construction going on right around it, so not a lot of car traffic goes in; I parked in the “far parking lot” (on the opposite side from the clubhouse/center), and made my way in. So, laptop in my backpack, off I went!

I found the PERFECT SPOT, in the shade of a bush at just the right angle at the waterside, with dragonflies dancing around me, about 1 mile from the parking lot.

It was SO EASY! (Again, more wondering on the way out as to why it had taken me so long to get to this point!)

Day 2:

On that morning, my intention was to go back to that same spot, because it was SO flowing and SO easy! As I came around the bend, there was a man in that EXACT SPOT (and I hadn’t seen anyone else until that point)… FISHING. Not only fishing, but JUST pulling up a fish as I walked up!

He was in scrubby clothing, sort of scrubby (as was I)… there was something different about him…and he looked me in the eyes, with a sparkle smiled and greeted me as I walked up. I returned the hello… however, in those first moments, I was pouting inside a little, with the thought, “REALLY? In the whole of 2 miles around the lake, this guy picked THIS EXACT SPOT from which to FISH?”

I kept going, trying to be a little bit irritated… but I felt this push to look at… something.

As I found another spot, just around the next bend, I was putting my little pillow on the ground to sit on when I GOT IT…

He was FISHING… and he’d CAUGHT A FISH. RIGHT in the spot from where I started my “official writing.”

One of the sayings I use ALL the time, repeatedly, with my students and clients is that my goal is to “teach one to fish instead of giving them the fish.” Full Divine self-empowerment! If I had a dollar for every time I’ve said it over the past five years… well, I could probably give the 1% a run for it!

SO FUNNY that this was the “support statement” from Higher Consciousness… and just on Day 2!

Day 3: 

SONY DSC

Part 1: When I first sat down, I did a meditation at the water’s edge, in the same place I sat yesterday. The Oneness was effortless; I could feel everything! After awhile, I noticed there was some odd thrumming sound that was unfamiliar to me – not to the left or right (or across the lake), but right in my vicinity. I opened my eyes, and there was a hummingbird, hovering over the water, about 2 feet in front of me and slightly to my left! It was really interested in me! We looked at each other for what seemed like 30 seconds… maybe less… but it was long enough that it was pointed that I notice the oddity of this… and then it flew away, soon to circle around and come back to the jewelweed in bloom around 6 feet from me.

There are SO MANY things about the symbolism of the hummingbird… something that occurred to me about it when we were looking eye to eye is this: Regardless of the flapping of its wings at such a tremendous speed, its head stays pretty centered and still while in flight. Pretty amazing. Staying the center of the storm – its OWN storm! There was far more…

Part 2: After I’d been writing, I packed everything back up in my backpack and was walking one way to leave, when a man who had passed by doubled back from the other direction and called to me. He asked me if I was an author; I smiled and said yes, I was writing a book. He pressed more and I realized he thought I was a published author he’d met in our area; he gave me her name (he said a book she wrote was At the Water’s Edge, which I thought was funny, given that I’d been sitting at the water’s edge when he’d first walked by). We talked for a few minutes, and he said, “I wish you much success and many blessings with the completion of your book…” I thanked him and turned to walk away, laughing to myself… with SO MUCH gratitude for the support… because really, I couldn’t make THAT up any better in my reality!

AND… things have started flowing again in multiple areas, just three short days of DOING this!

Now, I’m motivated. The writing itself is like a deep release that I didn’t realize I needed… it feels easy and freeing! And again, I ask myself… why was it that I put this off for so long? Could part of it be that I didn’t until now believe that something so profound and vulnerable and core to me could feel so good?

I recognize that it’ll come up to shift any grain of sand that’s left along the way that would allow the ego to block me; that’s why I feel like just three short days in, I’m receiving so much support from the aethers. However… the momentum’s started… and that’s all I really need; I’m READY!

 

Words, the Arts, and Our Advancement of Consciousness

© Agsandrew | Dreamstime.comOver the past several years, I’ve watched so many, as they step into their spiritual remembrance and realize they’re ALLOWED to follow their passion, favor expression via some form of the arts – whether painting, sculpturing, music of all kinds, dancing, writing, you name it – and REALLY expand once they allow themselves to do so.

For so long, I’ve observed this, and wondered why, as our remembrance of existing in higher consciousness unfolds, this seems to be important. It’s always felt good… and it’s always felt necessary; yet, according to the “3D standards,” the arts are generally a “nice to have” vs. a “necessary” part of our existence.

However, in my heart, I’ve always felt, “Of course,” even though I hadn’t yet remembered why.

My personally favored “art” – though I love many of them – is writing. I have much to write, it comes easily to me, and I know I consciously convey so much more energetically with the energy and remembrance I infuse in my words, than the words do in themselves.

Recently, I came across an article talking about author Stephen King’s tips on “How to Be a Great Writer.” One of the 22 very good points in this article was, “Understand that writing is a form of telepathy.”

‘All the arts depend upon telepathy to some degree…an important element… is transference. Your job isn’t to write words on the page, but rather to transfer the ideas inside your head into the heads of your readers…

Words are just the medium through which the transfer happens…’

Bingo!

It’s sometimes been a little disheartening to see some struggle with their heart being set on some form of arts, yet their mind (ego) telling them that it’s an “unimportant” pursuit in the bigger scheme of things… as the 3D world (friends, family, culture, you name it) will tell them this is so. I’ve watched them get a good start and then see their effort falter and sometimes regress – or go completely defunct –  as their ego causes them to question their worth, and tells them that they would be better suited to “put that on the back burner” to pursue “world-worthy efforts” instead; this assures the ego of the individual’s value in 3-4D society. I recently saw the lamenting of a fantastic artist I know – who REALLY infuses her intuition and Higher Consciousness/Remembrance into her art – mentioning she’d gone through a tough period of feeling down about herself because she was “just an artist.”

So, let’s step away from that for a moment, and observe it. My understanding is that our focus now is to progress BEYOND the “traditional” and REPETITIVE rise and fall of the 3-4D; time to allow the management of existence from a fully integrated consciousness, including from our 5th dimensional Self and above (TO NOTE: Yes, we ALL have that; the 1-4D versions of our Self is just a TINY piece of the whole of our consciousness, and yet, our lessons before now have been generally been to allow the separation-driven energies of the 1-4D rule our experience in those planes, while we’ve just gone about our other lessons in higher consciousness). Now, it’s time to bring it altogether, ALL consciousness apparent at ALL levels.

As I often discuss with others, all “things” that exist in the 1-4D have been Divine tools of expression that we’ve created for these kinds of lessons. We’re the Divine expressed as we are for these lessons. The separation-based existence we’ve pursued here is based from there possibly being something OUTSIDE of us – and we often and mostly forget here that all of that which is OUTSIDE of us is created from the Divine WITHIN us… simply tools that remind us how to consciously and purposely access that within ourselves. Eventually, as we remember that… we let go of the tools.

Words, art, music, and movement are some of the MOST POWERFUL tools we’ve created!

They’re based in the heart; in the intuition; and, when allowed to be fully expressed, allow the consciousness of the Higher Self to shine through… helping ALL who have exposure to it to tap into that part of themselves. It’s with these media that we convey so many feelings and understandings – and Remembrance – that are so, so, SO much bigger than the 3D representations in themselves!

As we progress down the path of our Remembrance of Higher Consciousness here in our 1-4D Self, in the 3D world, my understanding is that we’ve cycled so many times – Remembered and “fell,” to start/cycle over again – that we’ve completed these lessons, and it’s time to do things differently. We’ve gotten lost, over and over, in the pursuit of the mind, the pursuit of separation… and now it’s time to Remember the pursuit of the Spirit, the heart, and connectedness while simultaneously completing these lessons in such separation.

Since the practice of the Arts – of all kinds – brings forward, in its full glory, the reflection of the Spirit and Higher, connected Consciousness… then THAT would make it one of the MOST IMPORTANT practices to honor in the 3D world, foregoing all of the “mind-based” pursuits we’ve come to love so much, in the pursuit of separation!

Why? Because the Arts help us to Remember.

The more we allow ourselves to exist in connectedness and Oneness as we pursue our individual journeys here at the consciousness level of this particularly separation-based Universe, the FASTER we will collectively attain our goal of transcending the barriers on which we’ve previously tripped in forgetfulness. The individual connection to this connectedness that comes through via the Arts, the amazing tools in this category that we’ve created as a REMINDER here, actually help to propel our Remembrance light years beyond any separation- and mind-based activity/pursuit that we’ve created here. So yes, I fully agree that the Arts are a form of telepathy from this standpoint; and in that, I now have the answer to those I know, and to those whose paths I continue to cross, when they doubt the “validity of their existence” because as they pursue their spirituality, and their heart opens to and wants to express itself via this set of tools.

It’s one of the MOST important things for us to pursue… in helping ourselves, and in helping others Remember our connectedness. Are you up to the task of its purity? Just allow…

 

Unpacking the Boxes of Our Perception

weareone1In my household, we’ve always been purposeful in bringing up my two children (who are now on the cusp of 19 and 17) in an inclusionary way. We’ve stayed away from describing people via DIFFERENCES, and instead focused on celebrating our SIMILARITIES. We’ve stayed away from focusing on any perception of lack – from ourselves and/or others – and instead have mostly focused on the awesome things about everyone we know.

The other day, my oldest was talking about someone she knows, and started referring to the person via what she perceives is their parents’ income bracket. This was new, and a huge surprise to me, as we have friends from all throughout the spectrum of income, and it’s pretty much never before been a topic of conversation in our household. I asked her why it mattered and how she even knew any of that beyond her own supposition, and she said, “Well, it doesn’t matter… I’ve just observed this…” Without any qualifying reason for it to have been part of discussion. And then I realized, in her young adulthood, though she has a solid foundation from our household, she of course has influence via her access to the rest of the world, via college, work, and friends… and our household is STILL a rarity.

News flash: Our culture – and our experience through this experience of duality – has created an obsession with categories – what I call “boxes” – that limit us or others, that put us in an invisible hierarchy and perceptions of superiority and/or lack based on nothing but the illusions we create! And, BIGGER news flash: It’s time to let that go!

How much money someone makes, what kind of house someone lives in, what kind of car someone drives, what kind of clothes someone wears (and where they shop), what kind of food they eat, combined with hierarchies around gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, political beliefs (by the way, typically based on all of the above), weight, hair and eye color, attractiveness, the list goes on and on… and on. We often categorize and judge someone (ourselves included) based on any or all of the above, and yet we judge it in comparison to our PERSONAL filters of judgment around each of those categories.

Why do we continue to judge ourselves and others in this way? From my perspective and understanding, our physical bodies, our physical circumstances, and everything around us is perfect for the lessons we, as individual souls, would like to complete. We write, produce, direct, and act in the play of our own device, as part of the same of the collective, bigger picture that we collectively write, product, direct, and act in.

In duality, we take pride in the “that” and “not that.” We’ve done boxes in an extraordinary way! However, it’s important to remember that when we’re done with a particular set, we throw the script away, take off the costumes, take off the “meat suits,” or whatever suit our consciousness has currently chosen… we are simply equally awesome parts of the Divine Consciousness. WE’RE ALL THAT! Then we progress to write, produce, direct, and act in yet another play for ANOTHER set of lessons.

In my practice, I see a full spectrum of income, beliefs, race, gender, lifestyles, backgrounds, you name it… I have friends across the spectrum, as well. Yet, none of that matters to me, in the least – if anything, it makes my experience all the more colorful with such a variety! What DOES matter to me the MOST is, are they unhappy or happy in their current experience? That’s all that’s my concern; underneath everything else, beyond all of the boxes, all I see is an incredible, Divine being that is also a reflection of me in some way, from some time. When I see everyone that way, how can I help but just sit in a space of love for everyone else?

My goal, in helping others, is to help them remember their happiness, how to live in bliss… whatever picture that paints for THEM. When we do that, our Divine Truth and ultimate soul’s purpose naturally comes through, regardless of what the 3D looks like to others! AND… ultimately, EVERYONE can achieve their own happiness, once they realize they’re allowed to in whatever picture THEY desire.

When we do that, we begin seeing our similarities, and honoring the color that our different journeys create. We enjoy ourselves and each other more fully, and reach out, heart to heart, in a much higher vibration, in pure connection. We share, rather than hoard; we love, rather than fear; we identify, rather than isolate.

I remember seeing somewhere one of the first astronauts who said that from outer space, the Earth is simply that… Earth. No political boundaries, no separation… just a beautiful planet, as part of this amazing solar system. Time for us to remember each other in the same way, in full acceptance as part of the magnificent, Divine Oneness that we are.

 

What About These Earthquakes and Volcanoes?

volcanic-ring-of-fireI find this article really interesting… I’ve been watching this for the past 5 years, and so fascinating how things are playing out… 40 Volcanoes Are Erupting Right Now, and 34 of Them Are Along the Ring of Fire

First of all, before any of my comments, I want to preface with THERE IS NOTHING TO BE FEARFUL about. This is just observation… and we ARE in the midst of great change and shifting at ALL levels – yes, even our planet. The shifting itself and what manifests isn’t “wrong”; how we deal with it energetically is key – if we act with fear, then what we fear will manifest. If we continue to focus on raising our vibration and helping that of the planet’s, this will be as graceful and easy as possible… and regardless of what appears to be happening in the 3D, it will all flow.. if we let it.

Shortly after I first began REALLY “seeing” (in 2009), and my lines of connection really opened up to my/the Higher Consciousness, Archangel Ezekiel (Archangel of Transformation and Death) – one of my closest buds along this part of the journey, who’s been there from day one – “reminded me” what was to come. He was showing me in context to helping to “nudge” me (aka “the etheric 12×12 upside the head” LOL) into action, to “get it together” and get to a place of doing what I’m doing today, and FAST… because it was important for a number of us who had signed up to do so to “be in place” as this all started to accelerate. When I asked what “this” meant, he showed me… many visions of stuff like this picture, and told me, “There is a dramatic shift already started… and it will be fast, intense, and only as smooth as every individual decides to allow… on the physical plane, there will be many earthquakes and fires…”

Earthquakes and fires.

I remember asking how long this total transformation would take in this timeline; he told me that a majority of it would be over the next 10 years… and then continue on to be complete within 100 (which, by the way, is a VERY short time in terms of the “old” physical 3D plane).
I remember that was about a week before the Haiti earthquake in 2010; that seemed to really, really get the ball rolling.

All of this came back to me as I read this article… and it’s pretty cool how things have really, REALLY accelerated in the past several years, and how many of the visions/precognitive remembrances I’ve had have come to pass… although there are a number that are still “out there.” Is it bad? Absolutely not! However, it’s more important than EVER BEFORE to get in touch with inner guidance, with connection to your HIgher Self/Higher Consciousness… because my understanding is that the further we go, the more it’s important to depend on what’s WITHIN, vs. what the physical eyes see around us. Important to integrate all levels of consciousness (including the ego) for optimal experience. Shifting our experience this way with absolute grace and ease… and fun!

Yes, the Earth is shifting, too… and thus, she’s only doing what SHE needs to do. We perceive it as “bad” when we live in the path of that… but that’s our individual choice of experience, and simple the intertwined lesson plans that can be shifted for the more graceful, easy, and fun, too! We can simply honor her shifting – as part of the physical organism here – and focus on raising our own individual vibration as high as possible to help support the collective, the oversouls, the organism.

If you tend to use a lot of tools in your intuitive work, I will tell you that what I’ve seen consistently is the Tower card in the tarot deck… which is symbolic of the crumbling of that doesn’t serve us (the tower falling down around us). Many have fear of this, yet it’s truly cleansing and liberating… and it’s AWESOME… as long as we LET GO of that which doesn’t serve us!

So, if nothing has prompted you before… maybe this will… it’s time to LOOK WITHIN. Time to find peace within ourselves, to remember that the Divine Consciousness is just as fully INSIDE of us as outside of us… and to remember that WE are the Light; WE are the ones who volunteered to be here through this very unique, very powerful time… to be a part of the party through this experience!

This is really the core of what I do… I help others clear the way and then remember that all of the Divine Ability is within… and we are ALL psychics, healers… and we are ALL the Divine, expressed as who we are for the very individual, PERFECT purpose we have!

I also did a half-hour Living the Shift episode based on this on May 19, 2015; watch it now!

Integration of the Holidays (Part 1) – Quite the Winter Solstice Experience…

I’ve been working on several posts regarding the shifting of our perspectives at Christ-mas-time, away from specific belief systems to that of a simple, heartfelt celebration of Divine Consciousness (a remembering of the REAL use of the word “Christ” – well before Jesus – and how it applies to EVERYONE, across the board), unity, and unconditional love. However… as much as I have to say, I’ve found that I’ve been slow to write, slow to share.

And so, I guess I was given the motivation this morning… because here I am!

I woke up to a balmy, beautiful morning… in the 50’s when I woke up. That’s the beauty of North Carolina; we typically have spurts of weather in the 60’s and 70’s around Christmastime… and I’m completely OK with that! Anyway, I woke up in a very good mood… very cheery and celebratory, without any particular reason. In deciding that maybe, for the first time in years, I may actually do some holiday baking today – and enlist my teenage daughters to help – I felt inspired to take my dog out for the several-mile walk on which I haven’t taken her for months.

This walk is through a beautiful wooded area that I’ve experienced teeming with fae for several years now (for an experience in which I encountered who is called the Green Man in this fairy portal, see my post Knowing the NEW Door is Always Open…). I should’ve known what to expect today!

However… I’d completely forgotten that today is the Winter Solstice… quite the celebration day in many realms connected to Gaia/Earth.

My dog and I trotted happily on… whenever we do this jaunt, I use it as a walking meditation, and immediately meld in consciousness (see Trinity Energy Progression for more information on the process) with all that’s around me – elements, elementals, animals, plants/trees, etc. – in love, healing, and expansion. What a beautiful morning! How expansive everything felt! I enjoyed the holiday decorations on many of the houses I passed… and even more, I enjoyed the smell of celebration in the air… my heart opened wide.

On the second leg of the jaunt, as we rounded the corner to my favorite wooded area, I felt the pull to enter. I looked up at the brush, and there was the doorway into the wooded area that shows up to beckon me. So, we entered. We walked around… I walked along a creek that was fuller than I’ve seen it in awhile, and was surprised to see a number of fish swimming in this little creek. Of course… magical!

I finally made my way to the sideways tree upon which I love to sit and meditate when I’m called to do so in there. As soon as I sat down and closed my eyes… there was the magic. My dog began to whine a little bit… I knew she could see/feel everything, as well. But, for what at the 3D level of consciousness looked completely calm, peaceful, and somewhat winter-barren… as soon as I closed my eyes, all I could see was sparkly, brilliant decorations in vivid colors… and celebration, celebration, celebration of the elemental realm! It was at that moment, when I pondered on that (for my mind was wondering, “But it’s not Christmas…”)… that I remembered it was the Winter Solstice… the original celebration! That, combined with what we’ve so amazingly created serendipitously as not just holiday celebrations, but also us collectively walking through the doorway into the “next phase” of this evolutionary – “ascension” – process, was OF COURSE cause for great celebration! I saw so much adornment in red and green… and a rich, royal BLUE… and was reminded how our Christmas celebration is really far more connected to this ancient celebration of the solstice than anything else.

I saw the Green Man, adorned in a ceremonial costume of royal blue and white… and I laughed to myself, because gee… energetically, he felt a LOT like that of the figure we celebrate traveling throughout the world on Christmas Eve…

I bowed my head in respect, and he did the same to me.

As I sat there, observing in and feeling such joy… I was suddenly shown the portals I’ve been connecting via the “new Earth light grid” of late – Kauai, Mt. Shasta, Pilot Mountain, the Angel Tree in SC, the Mary portal in Grosse Ile, MI (my… I just realized I haven’t written about that one at all!), the portals in France and Europe, etc. – and, as I was simultaneously in ALL of those places, I understood. It was time to connect THIS portal to those, which also connected multiple dimensions within itself. So, that’s what I did. Amazing and beautiful experience!

When all was done, I took a deep breath, and… came back to this reality. I stood up, and closed my eyes for a moment more… and received a bow of gratitude from the Green Man and all of those in his realm that were present. I bowed in gratitude in return…and went on my way.

About a half mile up the road, my mind kicked in… and SLIGHTLY questioned that experience (which was unusual in itself). Just a wildly creative imagination? Perhaps.

As I came up the hill, around the corner before my last turn to go to my street, I heard the cry of a hawk. I looked to the sky to see the bird attached to the call. At first, I didn’t see anything in scanning the trees… and then, to pull my attention to it, a hawk left the branch of a tree right on the corner to fly to a neighboring tree. What was amazing: There had been THREE hawks sitting on that same branch together! As I was taking this in – I’d never actually seen THREE hawks together in the wild – another hawk took flight and flew to a nearby tree. Now, all three were watching me from three different places. The one left on the branch of the original tree was the most intent on me… and it was only about 15 feet away from me as I turned the corner. Yet, it didn’t fly away. So, I extended my heart out to it, with well wishes and love. I knew the exact moment this registered with the bird… because it was quite startled to receive such a conscious greeting from a person… and pooped from the branch. I laughed as it looked more curiously at me… and turned the corner. I was quite a bit past it when I felt the equivalent of a return greeting to me… and telepathic communication. “You are a Gatekeeper… and quite surprising…” (I pondered on that a bit, wondering what THAT meant, but realized it was simply a thought being projected). I then received the equivalent of well wishes from the bird; as I turned to look at it one more time, it took off from the branch.

Why would I ever, ever doubt? So much magic… so much excitement… so much to celebrate, for ALL of us!

More on the perspective of Christmas, coming…
