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

Share

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…

“Listen: There’s a hell of a good universe next door…let’s go!” ~e. e. cummings

I have quite a connection with nature, and find it SO healing; in fact, recently, I’ve found that nature most often feels “more real” than the 3D world (what I now internally call “the old Earth”). Repeatedly, I’ve been guided to send people to commune with trees to help ease the gunk coming up in the healing/clearing process; I’ve had very powerful experiences in doing so myself… actually, MOUNTAINS and OCEANS and everything HUGE!

Yesterday morning, I felt quite the intense pull to get outside; I was being called. I typically take my dog with me on walks, but was guided to leave her behind. I didn’t even put on sneakers; my Nike flip-flips (with tread on the bottom) felt sufficient enough, because I didn’t even want to stop to tie my shoes!

It felt amazing to just get outside and connect/merge with the trees, the plants, flowers, animals, and nature… I was guided to take the path in the nearby neighborhood which crossed me through the elemental wooded area that I love so much but haven’t crossed through for MONTHS. Funny enough, as I was walking on the road through it, my attention was brought to an opening in the woods, which looks like a doorway in the thick brush on the edge. It was beckoning to me (shorts, tank top, flip flops and all), and it was simply outside my reality to pass it by. So I entered.

An aside: There’s a lot of interesting interaction I’ve had with faie beings in this particular wooded area over the past several years… including a tremendously powerful and yet kind presence named Lodis (as I’ve seen and heard the name in my head) who is what the faie consider the deity of the doorways between the worlds. Lodis’ presence has transcended this wooded area for awhile. I remember the first time I sensed Lodis, about two years ago; I felt such a huge presence as I was running through that day that I just HAD to come to a dead stop there, in the middle of the road with my dog, to close my eyes and “see” who it was who was so huge that they were hovering over the trees, at the same time encapsulating all of them. There it was; and though I didn’t have conscious remembrance of this entity in the moment, I knew the FEELING of it (I don’t say he or she because it was both), and automatically briefly bowed my head in respect and opened my heart even further in greeting. I received the same in return, heard the name, and understood in moments that it was overlooking the development of “the doorways” between dimensions/worlds within that woods.

I’ve been patiently awaiting those “doorways” being “complete”… and I’ve asked almost every time I’ve been through there over the past few years if they’re done yet!

Anyway, as is my habit – and since I haven’t been that way for months – I connected in automatically with the woods as I approached, and asked about the doorways. As I’d seen the physical doorway at the edge of the woods to enter (one that has appeared to me in the past, but not for at least a year), I heard, “Why, yes, they are…” and I thought, “Well, THIS might be an adventure!” LOL!

And so I entered.

I shrugged and simply thought, OK… guide me. On the ground, I sensed a clear path in (even though there are no walking paths in there). So I followed it. I looked around, being aware of the possibility of poison ivy/poison oak (being in shorts and flip flips and all)… and yet, the path I was guided to take was free and clear of such plants, and I knew I would be OK.

The path I’d followed stopped at this huge, aged pine tree. This was the tree for me to connect through, I understood. And so I did.

Immediately, the colors brightened and sharpened tremendously, and I saw everything around me SO CLEARLY… in a completely different fashion, with my eyes closed. And yet… what I saw with my eyes closed felt far more real than with my eyes open!

I realized that I could FEEL the colors… which startled me a little. I was wondering upon that (which, of course, comes from the ego)… what does it MEAN to feel the colors in what I’m seeing?

I’ve had some really different perceptions of the world lately, and the little ego voice in my mind was totally baffled. So I thought, “OK… well… if I’m REALLY perceiving this… show me some way in the 3D (“old Earth”) reality…”

Until that point, I hadn’t even realized I was standing in complete stillness; complete silence. The only reason I realized this is because almost instantaneously from when I had that thought, something came crashing through the woods, seemingly out of nowhere. It was CLOSE, and moving fast. Staying in my melded state, I calmly opened my eyes, to see three deer – two young stags and a doe – chasing each other. Two continued the chase, but one stag stopped dead, no more than 20 feet from me, looked right in my eyes, and connected with me. I lost time and space, and felt a greeting from the heart… and then like I could hear some thoughts coming through from another level of consciousness; something along the lines of “Yes, it is known you are here.” That connection lasted for about 5 seconds; I closed my eyes to “see” the stag in my mind, saw him in more of a much different form, and he then bounded away to continue the play with his mates.

I continued the expansion of my merging (by way of Trinity Energy Progression) and gave gratitude for this place, for this energetic sharing… and just observed the feeling of the colors around me… the feeling of everything around me.

When I felt that was done, I opened my eyes. There was a tree I’d found on one of my few other jaunts into these woods, and I hadn’t been able to spot on my way in… it’s one of those trees that had fallen across the small creek running through the woods when it was younger and had re-rooted and grown up toward the sky, so the trunk part from when it had fallen runs on its side along the Earth, and then it makes a sharp turn upward. It’s a great place to sit in the thick of this beauty and meditate! As soon as I refocused my attention on finding it, I realized it was only about 50 feet from where I was already standing. That was my next stop! I made my way over and found a seat with gratitude on this lovely being.

I sat there for a short while with my eyes open, visually exploring what was around me; I realized that, though in the thick of the woods, I could see through to the road, probably no more than several hundred feet away. As I was considering this (that I was ultimately still on the outskirts of this wooded area), I noticed a man walking by with his dog on that road, while I sat there, completely unnoticed in the woods. I realized that not only did I FEEL like I was in a completely different world, even being so relatively close, but that I actually was in a different world.

After a few minutes, I again closed my eyes, expanded my consciousness in there even more, and reveled in the peace and beauty, while I was guided to do some pending healing work.

It wasn’t too long until my attention was pulled to the energy of some powerful entity in the woods with whom I was unfamiliar. I could suddenly feel its presence as plain as day… there was no missing it; as I was merged in with the energy of the woods and all within, it was just as much a part of me as a separate presence. As I honed in on the identity of this presence, I was taken aback… what I saw, in my mind’s eye, was the equivalent of a magnificent Sasquatch-sized being covered in leaves, with this vibrant consciousness of all that surrounded me. The Green Man! This was a first for me… I’d known OF the Green Man mythology, but had never encountered or really known much about him!

He was there to greet me; to welcome me into the doorway. He showed me a number of things of which I presently only have vague recollection … including paths ahead, changes ahead, for me and the world. But, most of all… he let me know that I am welcome, that I am connected to that doorway, and that when I am ready to actually walk through it, vs. just sit “at the edge“… it is there, he/they is/are there, ready and waiting.

We communicated telepathically for some period of time outside of 3D Earth’s time and space… and then I realized it felt like I should get back. I opened my heart in gratitude, thanked him, thanked all around me… and opened my eyes. I breathed in the beautiful, sweet smell of nature, stood up, and found a path back to the physical doorway that had been open to me in the 3D, physical world. The Green Man stayed with me, stayed connected to me as I departed; I felt him watching me from his version of the woods, in a pleasant parting wish… and I felt a wisp of his presence follow me all the way back home, as if he were noting that path.

As I walked off, I heard him send me the thought, “Until next time… soon…”

Can’t wait!
