Opening to Abundance

Share

AbundancePossibleMany have constant complaints about lack of ________ – whether it’s money, love, happiness, peace, you name it – and yet, hold beliefs, agreements, and patterns that cause them to continuously live in lack.

Often I’m guided to ask, “Do you allow yourself to receive?” How many times does it happen that one complains that they don’t have this, they don’t have that… and yet, they won’t ask for it, and if someone else offers assistance to gain whatever it is, they won’t accept?

Here’s an easy affirmation for you to help start your day and remind you about ALLOWING; clear your mind and say to yourself (or out loud): “I invite, allow, accept, and embrace continuous, limitless and infinitely expansive benevolent abundance in my existence, in all ways, shapes, and forms with grace, ease, balance, harmony, and joy.” Then, close your eyes and envision yourself in a scene like this… I often see and feel golden, light/love waterfalls just streaming in toward me, flowing through me, being one with me… and sit with that for a few minutes. Lovely!

What Do YOU Consider “Healing”?

Share

When we are based in the mind/ego, we limit ourselves to expectations that we can only conjure in the mind/ego. When we hear the word “healing,” we often have a set of certain expectations in our mind that can ultimately limit us.

Important to ask yourself, does your mind consider healing – physical, mental, emotional, environmental, spiritual – “the alleviation of uncomfortable symptoms” (aka, “put on a Band-Aid”), or actually getting to the core underlying issues and removing them so the “symptoms” will disappear?

Ultimately, from an an energetic point of view, it is my understanding that “healing” is allowing full flow, full connection to the Higher Self/Divine, without limitations that are impeded by resistance – such as fear, anxiety, anger, resentment, regret, guilt, doubt, sorrow, and pain – and thus, allows experience of the higher vibrations of happiness, joy… and bliss.

When we put expectations around what that will look like, based on what the mind pictures… we often limit the result. Do you believe you can only heal so much, so far, because of ___________________ (your age, your weight, your genetics, etc.)? Do you just feel like “healing” would simply encompass removal of chronic pain? If you hold such beliefs, you will limit your ultimate result to that.

It’s the ego that puts a picture around the word… and such a powerful word it is!

Also, because of the physical element of healing, we often have our mind set certain expectations as to what that looks like… particularly with energy healing work. I remember once I had a client with whom I had one session; during the session, she told me she was in a serious funk because she’d lost her job, lost her home, she was living in one room of a friend’s house, and she wanted to just curl up into the fetal position and fade away. We worked on a lot that day energetically! After about a month passed from the session, I was nudged to send her an email to check in and see how she was doing, if she’d noticed any differences, etc. Her response was that she didn’t think our session had done much for her… but since we’d spoken, she’d gotten a new job, a new place to live, and had met some new people she really liked… and she was much, much happier. As it all did happen immediately after our session, I understood that what we’d worked on together had released a lot of what she’s held on to so she could open herself up energetically to what she desired… it was so graceful and easy that she hadn’t even realized it until I explained how it was connected!

I have worked with some who have what we consider “terminal dis-eases”… and though some may have ultimately chosen to transition, it was well worth all of the work to release all of the weights that had caused them to come into that physical state in the first place… because they were actually able to transition in peace, and now they don’t have to carry it forward into their next life, their next experience, as a lesson still to be learned. Is that a failure to the effort? Absolutely not… as long as we don’t attach our mind’s expectations to it. If we think that death itself is considered “failure”… then we limit ourselves.

We have many, many layers of experience… and thus, in the journey to remember our Divinity, the “healing” is to release resistance that we still hold, assimilate the lessons… and remember our light in unconditional love. What that “looks like” in 3D existence is different for everyone and continuously shifts as we do, but ultimately results in happiness, joy, love, and bliss! The key goes back to flow, flow, flow… as the energetic torus as pictured here, if we are in full flow, without resistance, we exist without pain, without difficulties… and can soar into our “next level.”

The Power of Your Words… and the Words in Your Power

Share

Do you fully pay attention to your words, to the reality you create in them? We are in such a habit of ignoring the power of our creation by the words we use, that even those of us who are very adept at doing so often have “blind spots” created by the ego that we can be challenged in noting (and changing)!

For example… do you say things like, “I’m too old to ____” “I don’t do well with a lot of other people…” “I’m getting old…” (implying you’re getting frail) “I can’t pull off something like that…” “I’m allergic to…” “I’m _______ (diabetic, bipolar, ADD, you name it)”? Often, we simply accept the limitations imparted to us by others (“you’re not ______ enough,” or “you’re too _______”), or we perpetuate cultural norms by accepting them and repeating them, again and again. We accept things that have limited us our entire lives… because we’ve let them limit us before.

We can change EVERYTHING. Yes, EVERYTHING… even what doctors, scientists, belief systems, institutions, and commercials tell us we can’t (an amazing story of an extreme example of this is Anita Moorjani’s book, “Dying To Be Me”). It’s been more of an exercise in duality… creating such disempowerment, telling ourselves – and each other – that others are more powerful, know more than we do, and that the Divine is outside of us, that it couldn’t possibly be within.

Part of our shifting into a new paradigm is recognizing that the Divine is WITHIN us, that we have access to ALL… and that we are CREATORS of our reality. The “return to magic” is very largely remembering the power of our own creation via thoughts and words, via remembering our Divine abilities – and that we can release and change anything – yes, ANYTHING – that limits us, in ANY way! In fact, the key areas in which to start to focus are where you limit yourself by your words and beliefs (see the statements above). That’s what we do in what’s called “energy work” – start with the core underlying issues, the non-physical causes to the physical, whether it’s purely physical, emotional, environmental, spiritual, etc. Eventually, as we release those causes, many issues formerly plaguing us simply disappear entirely.

I’ve seen it, first hand… and I’ve EXPERIENCED it first hand. I’ve seen instantaneous healings… and I’ve experienced them… of all types!

I get it; it can be scary to the ego… because it’s used to projecting blame onto others… that’s the comfort zone! The realization of this is that we’re fully responsible for our entire existence; our entire reality. Once this is accepted, blame disappears… and all we realize we’re doing is looking at the mirror within. The best way to do this? Letting go of the limitations of duality, and thus, judgment… to be able to look at ALL that is within and accept it… embrace it with love… and let go of the manifested limitations.

So, where to start? Take a day and set your intention to notice ALL of your “I AMs” – spoken AND unspoken – and write them down. Do you say, “I can’t do that because I’m ______”? How many times do you say that, along with “I’m not” or “I can’t”? The biggest challenge is in being CONSCIOUS of the thoughts and words, before you can change them!

Once we can notice the limiting patterns… we can CHANGE them! There are many, many ways to do so: simply changing our thought and word patterns (which sounds easy but takes a lot of continued consciousness and patience with ourselves), affirmations, meditation, and – my personal favorite – energy work, among other possibilities.

Here’s a start: Start your day with standing buck naked in front of a mirror, looking yourself straight in the eyes, and saying a simple “I LOVE MYSELF; I AM LIMITLESS.” It may be uncomfortable at first (I always get an uncomfortable shifting from others when I suggest this)… but as you change and shift, you will remember your self love more and more. And then… the other efforts start coming more easily.

And then, one day… PRESTO… things have shifted, in leaps and bounds!

Take it one step at a time… have patience with yourself… and LAUGH! Just commit yourself to the “active journey”… take some baby steps… and the rest will follow!

Transforming Death in Our Experience

Share

During this time of awakening, it’s important for us to reconsider our feelings about “death.” So often – almost daily – I see pleas on Facebook, in email, etc. asking for everyone to pray for and/or send healing energy to someone so they will get better from _____. That (of course) IS perfect and (yes, REALLY) very helpful… however, I also see the same pleas for those who are on their last legs of a terminal illness that they have accepted as part of their path (typically things like “please pray for _____ to get better…”)

OF COURSE, EVERYTHING is curable… we can release EVERYTHING; a GREAT example of this is Anita Moorjani’s story, Dying to Be Me, where, at the verge of death via stage 4B cancer, with her organs literally shutting down while she was in a coma, she “stepped out,” remembered all of this, and instantly released/healed the causes of the cancer… and subsequently woke up completely cancer-free.

HOWEVER… during this time, many are choosing their “door” to transition out of the body as part of their journey.

Often, I’ve seen someone hang around long after they might have had otherwise had their family/friends not continually made them feel as if they had to stay longer. This happens a lot with immediate family… and this causes the one at the doorway to hesitate because they feel like they’re letting their family down, that their family won’t be able to go on without them, that they have to “be strong” and “take one for the team,” etc. The person’s ego gives them the motivation to stay because it validates their worthiness when others tell them as much… even if they are in considerable physical pain and limitation still in the body.

Yes, it’s ok to grieve/mourn, it’s ok to be sad… and it’s also ok – and important to all involved – to let them go.

The biggest resistance we have about death has only to do our own fears and beliefs about it – that we will be “separated” from our loved ones, that we/they will be judged and punished somehow, etc. As I understand it, it’s simply a time for transformation and transition, from the part of our consciousness that’s within the 3D physical to be released from it… like throwing out an old pair of jeans that don’t serve the person anymore. If they’re done with the lessons they aspired to learn in this lifetime, then it’s time for them to go (funny, my hubby and I had this conversation with my daughters one night at the dinner table… my oldest, who’s 17 – and quite the worrier – said, “Well, you talk a lot about how when someone’s done with their lessons in this life, that’s when it will be time for them to go… so, that really means that some freak accident can just happen because it’s “that time”… no matter where the person is…” We assented as that being our understanding; she thought about it and said, “So, it’s really useless to WORRY about it, because when it’s time, it’s time…” Yep, pretty much so…  )

When we start living from the perception/remembrance that we are all One, that this is all illusion anyway, that our loved ones are NEVER actually apart from us – whether they’re in the flesh or not – and the only judgment we receive is that which we hold on ourselves, and that death is simply a transition that is actually an accomplishment in itself… then it becomes far easier to accept and honor this as part of everyone’s individual journey.

In the first decade of 2000, I had an 8-year period where 9+ people in my family and friends passed away… so I’ve definitely experienced that kind of loss first hand! In multiple instances, it was saddening to see the pain, suffering, limitations, and internal battles that were going on in their physical body… of COURSE that was no way I wanted to see someone I loved! So… I verbally told those who were “holding on” in such a way that I loved them, that of course they were loved, and standing in that love, I told them it was OK for them to go, if they so chose (and I encouraged other family members to do the same)…and it was amazing how quickly and easily they passed on afterward (with a “follow-up visit” from them each time, after things had settled LOL… for THEM to express their love and gratitude for the support).

I know that it’s often challenging for the ego to let go – there’s always “an excuse” with which to persuade someone to stay – but when we believe and remember that everyone’s journey is their own, that and we simply honor them for their choices with unconditional love, regardless of the outcome… that really helps to shift the experience for the person and for all involved, from one of conflict and resistance to that of support and love to aid in their transition, if that’s what they choose to do. And, acceptance on all parties involved allows the end of their time here in that body, for this life, to be more enjoyable, graceful, and easy. 

Persevering to the Gold… and Then Getting Past the Void Within (to Get to the Gold)

Share

These past few weeks have had the energy of support to finally… get… to… the… thorn that’s been in our side (even if we were “ignoring” it until now). Many things are/have been coming to a head for many, and depending on our choices (graceful and easy, or not?), it IS finally erupting so that we can LET IT GO.

Myself included; there have been some things “in my face” and a part of my experience for so long (throughout most of this life, and I understand many others, as well) that I can’t believe it took so long to SEE it, and then finally release it… TOTAL “DUH moments”! And then, once the main one was released… WOW… other “big things” just started coming up and flowing, flowing, flowing out. The result: It’s been HUGELY productive and cleansing! It’s been such a huge release and shift that I found I temporarily felt a huge, empty hole in place of those energies, because they’ve been a part of me for so long (even though they didn’t serve me, except to learn the lesson). I focused my efforts on releasing the feeling of the hole, and now, in its place has grown blessed peace, love, and AHHHHHH….

During this period, I’ve seen SO MANY symptoms of this, within myself, with clients, students, friends, family… and also institutions, belief systems, collective consciousness, you name it! The result is that for many, it feels like the world (the personal world, the world itself) is crashing down around them. Paradigms are shifting… so much is falling away in more ways than could previously be imagined!

What’s important to realize is that when our world feels that way, the lynchpin is actually our Self. Sometimes it’s most challenging for us to see in ourselves the deepest pieces of what may be holding us back… because the ego says, “Unh-unh… this is WHO WE ARE… who would we be if we let this go?” And so… the ego takes on the job of BUILDING the identity around it, and it creates a zillion excuses to SAFEGUARD it. It becomes very adept at hiding this as a limitation, and when a situation comes up that you KNOW limits you in some way, the ego justifies it (often like a martyr), and says, “Oh, that’s just who I am…” and similar ideas. It will vehemently maintain the BEing in the limiting state, because it’s afraid of becoming nothing otherwise. And… sometimes we allow the ego to sabotage us by keeping us JUST SHORT of reaching our goal… because reaching the goal is actually the biggest fear. There will be a LOT of “almost” situations, to keep us going (and, of course, the identity can stay in the mode of “working toward the goal,” which feels far safer).

I see this in very 3D ways… and I see this in very spiritual ways. I’ve seen some very adept and advanced healers/metaphysicians suddenly have a crash of sorts – physical, emotional, spiritual, and/or environmental – which feels like it came out of nowhere… and suddenly, all of their practices stop working in the fashion they’d worked before; they experience one major blockage after another… and it seems that the more they try things to remedy the situation and keep moving – regardless of what it is – the worse things seem to get. Nothing makes sense in terms of the results of their efforts… and it keeps on holding them back until they retreat from their previous efforts and sometimes give up for a bit (retreats), or find a strategic way to get BACK to the “comfort zone” (which sometimes seems different, but it’s simply the same thing disguised differently). This is from the ego sensing major danger (“Danger, danger, Will Robinson!”) because the person was actually getting REALLY CLOSE to the point of releasing a MAJOR limitation that’s been holding them back, something they’ve had well ingrained and incorporated into their identity… and the ego pulls out all the stops to hang on to the old identity for dear life (since my understanding is that it’s the ego’s primary job to create an identity separate from “the whole”).

When that happens… I’m telling you now: Know that YOU’RE ALMOST THERE. Know that obviously, there’s something in the vicinity of where you were when everything came crashing down that REALLY posed the release of this. That’s key!

So, we’re at the point in this Shift when it’s SO important that when we get to the “edge of the cliff” – even if we can’t see what’s beyond – that instead of staying at the edge indefinitely (or turning back), we TRUST and take a leap. We’ve come this far… might as well go all the way!

I know, I know, I make it sound so easy, right? I know it takes a lot of continuous effort; however, right now, this energy is so pervasive that the Higher Self isn’t giving us a whole lot of leeway… either we look at it ourselves or we manifest situations that will become so confining in some way, shape, or form that we finally have no choice but to be completely paralyzed, check out, or bust out of it, once and for all!

WOW… I promise you, the feeling of such deeply ingrained energies/limitations is EXHILARATING!

And then… the next part is really, really important to navigate in a very conscious way; after the release of such ingrained energies (habits and identity), the next typical reaction is a feeling of being lost, feeling sad, lonely… sort of like being in a void.

We don’t talk about this point beyond huge clearings much… but many don’t know how to get beyond that point; they don’t even know the words to describe what they feel. We think, WOW… I’m so glad I got rid of that/attained that/healed that… and then the ego scrambles and freaks out, saying, “NOW WHAT? WHO ARE WE NOW? WHAT DO WE DO?” If one doesn’t know what to do to move forward, sometimes they will slip backwards again and they will find a way to exhibit a different behavior that creates the same energy as what they just released… because that’s the “comfort zone” of the ego (it’s a “known evil,” and therefore, comfortable).

It’s SO perfect (of course) that these energies abound while the Winter Olympics in our 3D reality… because think about it: Many singularly train for the Olympics; for many, it’s been their entire life until now. So, say you win the gold medal, which was your ultimate goal, and you’re done with the Olympics now… what do you do next? Now what? Many go through a period of this “hole,” once the fanfare dies down… not knowing who they are anymore and where “to go” next. (And, by the way, that’s the period through which many fall into undesirable habits and “get into trouble”… because they don’t know how to “fill the hole” and simply find other ways to get the adrenaline of attainment going again.)

So…as we continue releasing such BIG stuff… there will be temporary periods of feeling a void… feeling lost… feeling like, “Good grief… this feels worse than I did before…” Sometimes, this provides feelings of isolation, loneliness, sadness (and tears), and/or fears of failure (because of releasing those energies in your life – which often sever relationships or situations that would perpetuate that “old energy”). This often exists in the gap of releasing those energies/behaviors from the identity and then expanding into our pure, undiluted, Divine self in that “space.”

First of all, recognize that this feeling of “the void” is simply the belief that you’ve lost an important part of you; and instead know that you’ve actually released a limiting part of you that will allow you to take another leap toward the full, Divine you and ultimate purpose that you came here to attain!

Well, there is meditation, of clearing the mind, focusing on the heart and the Divine light that you shine, and simply expand it out, out, out… (I have some basic guided meditations to do this available here on this Website). In doing so, you can set the intention/affirmation of releasing the “old identity,” and if you like, get conscious understanding of how this serves you in the highest and best way. If you’re a spiritual practitioner, focus your healing intentions on releasing the beliefs that you’re “less than” because of what you’re released, in any way, shape, or form. Whenever you’re feeling the heaviness, focus on expanding the light from your heart, brighter and brighter (and remember that the rest is all illusion).

If you feel like you need outside assistance in getting through this, you can talk to a practitioner of your choosing (I’d be glad to work with you... and there are many, many other spiritual mentors/advisors/healing facilitators available today who can help you – go by your inner guidance as to who will be best for you and your situation!). Do you have a spiritual discussion peer group, a place where you can talk about these feelings and the processing without judgment? This is a great forum to talk about it, and share your processing if you feel like you need outside support (for in person… if you’re in the central NC area, I moderate an open spiritual discussion group in three different Triangle locations monthly; see the Meetup; I’ve also built an interactive online spiritual community on Facebook; you can join here). Find a new hobby, do a hobby you enjoy more… remember how to ENJOY to space you’ve created, simply stay in the moment, and know/trust that now you’ve left space for something phenomenal to come in, in a way that DOES serve you in the highest and best way!

Right here, right now… if you would like a clearing that will provide assistance to allow you to resolve, dissolve, release, and clear the core underlying issues that would cause the feeling of a “void” after releasing prominent limitations in your life, remove the energy of that feeling of that void, and know how to allow your Self to positively and productively fill in the space left by the clearing in the highest and best way with the most grace and ease, just close your eyes, be open to receive, and say, “Yes – filling the void.”

Once we get through this… just know, we ALL get the gold!

Are You Here and Now? Do You Know How to BE?

This winter in North Carolina, we’ve actually  had a “real winter”… for here, anyway.

In the southern United States, since we typically have something like 1-4 days per winter when we might actually have some snow or ice, we don’t have the budget in our town systems to do any extensive plowing or road maintenance when we do get the white/icy stuff. Plus, our roads really don’t get cold enough for it to stick for more than a few days. So… a few inches of snow does slow things down to a crawl very easily.

Right now, it’s the second week in the past three that we’ve had snow/ice accumulate on the ground. Yes, our schools are closed; yes, many are having a challenge getting to and fro because of the limited road clearing service. However, in listening to conversations, in watching the postings across the Internet… what is often prominent is what boils down to a) addiction to drama and discontent, and b) lack of presence that in so many ways pervades our society.

Here’s the lesson…

Listen to conversations… even those in which you’re engaged. How many times do you and others say things like, “This is a mess…” “I can’t wait until beach weather…” “How many days until spring?” “I really can’t wait to get back to work; I’m getting a little stir crazy being stuck in the house with my _______ (kids, spouse, etc.)…” And… if you pay attention, long term… at other times, how often do you hear, “It’s too hot; I can’t wait until it cools down…” “I’m really looking forward to getting some time away from the office…” “I’d love to be able to just stay home today…””I really just want to spend some time with my ______ (kids, spouse, etc.)…”

In all of the complaining… in all of the wishing to be someplace, somewhere else… when does the individual ALLOW themselves to enjoy everything that’s offered right here, right now?

The pictures featured on this post was taken by my 15-year-old this morning; she and her 17-year-old sister hurried to get up and dressed to go out and play in the snow… and to take pictures of the rare winter wonderland we have, which will only last here for a few days. The pictures she took were sublime, saturated with beauty, stillness… and presence.

Just… right… now.

In our society, we fill up our time with largely meaningless chatter and complaints that really have little truth to feel like we’re “one of the group.” How many times have you complained about your spouse, your kids, your house, your ______… when it’s really a vast over exaggeration so you don’t stand out from the crowd? How much time do you spend complaining about wanting something other than what’s right in front of you… whether it’s to be someplace else, to have something else, or to do something else?

Part of the process of awakening and enlightenment is to release living in duality and the perception of lack… in anything. It’s also letting go of the coulda, shoulda, wouldas, stopping the chatter of the ego and its role in duality, and simply accepting that the only reality is NOW… right this moment. The more we live in the moment… the more we find the beauty, the serenity, and the perfection of what the Universe/our Higher Self brings to us… no matter WHAT that looks like. Also, as the energies have shifted and are continuing to shift, the power of our thoughts and words become more and more powerful. Complain about something? That creates more of a situation of lack via thoughts and words. Instead, it’s time to change things around… start with gratitude.

Start with a journal – a notebook of any type will suffice. Every morning, take ten minutes (or less) and write down three things that you have gratitude for. EVERYONE can do this… it’s a matter of changing the way we see things. You can be grateful for getting up in the morning; for a beautiful, sunny day; for the unconditional love given to you by your pet; for having a car… it doesn’t have to be big. Do you think that three things are too many? Start with one per day. EVERY day. Before you know it, you’ll be LOOKING at the moment – the right here, right now – to recognize the gratitude you have for everything in it. I promise you… it works!

Eventually, when you get there. you’ll automatically see the positive in every moment; more and more, you’ll appreciate that which you have NOW… vs. what you “lack.”

So, in this week… I’ve found gratitude in the beauty of the snow… the ice on the trees… the quiet muffling of sound  when the snow was coming down… the fact that we kept our power on… that we had firewood for fires in the fireplace… and that my husband, children, and I spent some time together, without the hustle and bustle of the world taking us in different directions… and that my two children – my oldest being a senior in high school, my youngest a sophomore – still enjoy “playing” in the snow (albeit briefly), and in spending time together with my husband and me. Look at that: That was a list of SEVEN things to have gratitude for… with barely a thought. there are many, many more in EVERY moment!

So, for you… look around you! There is ALWAYS some beauty present… even in what we perceive to be the ugliest of situations. Expand your heart in gratitude and love… and you’ll be surprised at the different existence you begin to perceive!

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…
