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…

 

The Explosion of World, Local, & Personal Events… A Note on How This Ties ALL of Us Together (Literally!)

I’ve been observing everything and everyone around me over the past several weeks and wondering about the increased urgency, the increased number of situations – personally and collectively – that have seemed to have exploded, all over the world.  And yes… it’s that a lot is crumbling away that doesn’t serve us (see my post from this last weekend, Traumatized? Downtrodden? Tired? A Love Note to You on What’s Crumbling Away…). It’s felt like some pin was removed this month that just let those snowballs just roll downhill, faster and faster! However… there’s been something else that until yesterday, I couldn’t quite put my finger on.

And then…

I was wondering why over the past few weeks I’ve started “hearing thoughts” again… when I first had my “Grand Awakening” in 2009, that was the first thing I learned how to control and filter out, and haven’t had that issue since. I’ve noticed when I go to sleep at night, I’m being called on by many to do healing work, to give counsel, etc. And then, this past week, in meditation, suddenly the same thing started happening… this layer of the chatter of others… I’m constantly redirecting back to the higher dimensions. Beyond that, several times over the past few weeks, I’ve been in session with someone, written down notes while we were talking, and when I’d read back some of the notes on the intentions we’d be setting for the energy work… my client would say, “Wow… how did you know that? I didn’t talk about that at all…” a few times I’d reply, “Yes, you did…” and they’d repeat they didn’t… and I would then hear “No, they didn’t… but you HEARD it.” I’d put money down that I heard them say such things out loud… it was THAT clear.

So, how are these two things connected?

Yesterday, after continuously “re-setting” to energetically rise above the level of those who were asking for guidance/help in meditation, I finally asked, “What is GOING ON?” Very clearly, I understood that it’s the “expansion of the telepathic frequency.” Just that one understanding brought clarity on all of this. It felt RIGHT – my entire Being felt “Of COURSE!” – and as the day progressed, more and more started making sense.

As we progress, we’re connecting more and more again, remembering our Oneness… that includes telepathic connection. I’d been shown about a year ago that our “telepathic frequencies” would start to become VERY easy to access again, as a natural part of this shift. I’d understood it… but here we are, IN it!

When I realized this yesterday, I understood that I wasn’t to put up any blockades anymore – because shields and blockages are SEPARATION, and that’s what we’re releasing. So, it was simply to find another way to stay clear, without being distracted or negatively affected by it… finding my peace and clarity without separating myself from that connection, at all levels.

As I’m now adept at working and shifting things on a dime energetically… it’s been an adjustment, but with very little effect to me personally. HOWEVER… for many others…

We’ve shifted enough collectively that these “telepathic frequencies,” or some call it “the telepathic channel,” are being accessed by many who’ve been SO separated and in their ego for so long that there are a lot of unconscious repercussions as we adjust… sort of FORCING the process of Awakening for many! First of all, there are MANY who haven’t yet become conscious of/remembered how to exist predominantly from the heart (as the seat of the soul)… many (a great majority) who still have an egoic identity of living in separation and secrecy and hide (or don’t even know) much of their Truth…many who don’t know the importance of changing the habit of their words (and thus, their thoughts), and to change their connections to coming from the MEANING behind the words vs. the words themselves… and, most importantly, many who don’t yet know/remember how to discern the difference between the voice of the Higher Self and the voice of the ego.

Also, many have yet to remember and honor that we’re all on our individual journeys, without a right or a wrong one…. and judgment prevails from their ego.

So suddenly, many, many more are automatically accessing understanding via these telepathic frequencies, even though they may not realize or acknowledge it at a conscious level. It can be quite subtle, even the whisper of what another might be thinking or a glimpse of what’s going on in another’s mind can set the ego off, without listening to the Higher Self about the situation (and not even knowing/remembering how to do so). And thus… what happens, when you’re not in the practice of any of the above? A lot of partial truths are suddenly (mis)understood, a LOT of knee jerking starts occurring, a lot of egoic reactions, a lot of inflammation and MANY misunderstandings, or paying attention to “the shiny” – the thoughts/words vs. the feelings behind them… and a LOT of explosions and falling away, because so much has been “hidden” in our thoughts for so long, there’s been so much lack of authenticity and once those thoughts come to light in our connection, the situation simply corrects itself, very quickly.

Sound familiar?

It’s sort of the equivalent of having the TV or stereo muted, and then unmuting it and realizing that the sound is BLASTING, and you can’t turn the sound down or off anymore.

This is SO disconcerting to MANY… and they don’t even consciously understand what’s going on! So, a LOT is “blowing up” right now because these frequencies have opened up. The good part: Things will correct themselves quickly… and ultimately it will all become far, far easier, because we’re going to HAVE to live in our Truth.

So, what is there to do about this?

Well… if you don’t meditate in some way, shape, or form, it’s really rather pertinent to do so, immediately. Whatever method or practice works for you… because meditation quiets the chatter of the ego and helps us to start living from a higher consciousness, from the Higher Self. It’s the basis of being able to do all kinds of healing and releasing work… and ultimately, it helps us to remember how to consciously connect in together in the Oneness in love and bliss… and THAT’S our Truth. All the rest… illusion. And the more we live from that perspective of connectedness/Oneness, the less the chatter will affect us, the more we’ll start to FEEL the Truth of situations vs. what the ego wants to judge, and the more we’ll live from the perspective that we’re all a part of each other… and that it’s time for us to LIVE that way. That’s the only way things will ultimately work and be productive. Otherwise… it will just fall away, faster and faster.

And, for those of us who are already doing spiritual/metaphysical healing work… many will complain about this sudden amplification of “the noise”… and the protective (aka separation) instinct is to do what we can to “turn it off”; however, THIS lesson is that it’s time for us to release the “fears of being connected” and INSTEAD adapt to being able to press on without shutting it out (my understanding is that those methods will actually become more and more ineffective), and living from our Truth – walking the walk – once and for all.

If you need assistance with or clarity on any of the above… give me a shout… in the physical OR non-physical, whatever your choice!  🙂

When Surreal Becomes “New Real” (NM Road Trip Revelations II)

Since my return from my road trip early last month, I’ve had many people ask me, “So, what would you say are the two or three biggest takeaways from your road trip and retreat in New Mexico?”

My answer: “Only two or three?!”

Seriously!

Well, in order of magnitude, I would say my post from 5/12/11, Reminiscent of Close Encounters (NM Road Trip Revelations I) covered the top takeaway – it still feels so overwhelmingly huge when I think about how many people I met there from around the world have been having the same experiences, getting the same “messages” as I’ve been getting, especially since 2009… and though we all had such a broad mix of backgrounds – from corporate professionals, engineers, math teachers, and the like across the spectrum to those who have been doing body and energy work for years –  with just as a broad a mix of timelines, it seems that everything is starting to come together… and we’re all getting to the same place.

That actually seeps right into what I would term “Takeaway #2″… and I’m still a bit more hesitant to talk about it; it’s a little more challenging to explain without going into some really far out stuff…

There are whole stories I’ve “seen” and journaled with fervor, including future occurrences and future existences. In fact, these “visions” have been gifted to me with such clarity, such vividness – and such detail, in some respects – that I’ve repeatedly told the few close enough to me with whom I’ve divulged some of these stories that either my subconscious is so brilliantly putting together the most creative, complex, yet beautiful story I’ve known (putting J.K. Rowling to shame), or there has to be some credence behind them and from where they’re coming.

So, even though I felt like I believed what I saw and what I experienced… there were still many holes, and I think there was still a part of me that questioned. I could see a Before and After – some days, some pretty far forward After – and it is some phenomenal stuff. However, what prevented me from sharing much of it was that I didn’t understand the transition and how we could possibly get there in so relatively short a period of time. It was surreal.

When I sat in that 2-day retreat with Kiesha Crowther (aka Little Grandmother), I just listened to what she had to say for 2 days with an open mind. On the second day, she went into the “further out” topics that they tend not to post on videos online. I can’t even explain what happened, except that I guess I must have simply been soaking it all in like a sponge, saving it all to process for the road afterwards. Because that’s what happened, that evening, on the 2-hour ride to my cousin’s house outside of Taos.

I remember how edgy I felt when I left… in a good way. Like I was on the brink of something… but I had no idea that as soon as I started driving, I would almost hear an audible “click, click, click, click, click, click…” of all of those disparate visions I’d been having, as they connected together into a much more complete story.

If I was ever going to spontaneously combust, it would’ve been that evening!

Here’s what was so huge, so absolutely tremendous: That all of that discussion – the more “woo-woo” stuff she had talked about – perfectly filled in all of the blanks to connect the dots between the pieces and parts that I had already seen from my perspective.

Deep down, I think there was a piece of me that started jumping up and down and yelling, “OMG! OMG! I’m REALLY sane [OK, mostly… LOL]… or there are many others that are part of my psychosis! It all makes sense!”

Soooo… now I know what you’re going to ask: “Exactly WHAT is it we’re talking about here?”

Well, you know, THAT will take a lot of typing… so I’ll just give you something to give you an idea of what I mean without having to provide all the details:

When, at 40, I realized that much of my emotional upheaval when I was a child – and subsequently, the purpose of me purposely shutting out emotional connection (the other extreme) came from overtly empathic causes – I started working to unbind all of that which I had bound for all of those years, and I finally accepted connection with others as part of my reality.

When I was in my early 20s, and started getting periodic prophetic dreams… once I started understanding when I’d had one of those dreams and I began to understand and decipher them, I stopped calling them surreal and just accepted them as part of my reality.

When I was in my early 30s, and started having “visits” from those who had passed over… once I started understanding when that was happening (or had happened in a dream), I stopped calling the experiences surreal and just accepted them as part of my reality.

When I started having visits with the expanded Universe of Beings, including spirits, ascended masters, angels, archangels, and other Beings… I learned the Highest and Best way to commune with them, allowed them to help me to “remember,” then watched as short-term events I was “shown” come to pass…. and I stopped calling the experiences surreal and accepted all of that as part of my reality.

When I started working with herbs and plants and felt their rhythm and how they assimilate so easily with us, then found I could connect in easily with all the creatures in the natural world… and that in their own way, they would provide messages to me, always at the right time and place… I stopped considering that surreal and accepted it as part of my reality.

When I was a child – pretty early on, maybe about 5 or 6 – I remember being sent to Bible study class when my father took my sister and me to church, and I remember thinking to myself – but never saying out loud, for fear of some retribution (after all, I was a mere child) – and being ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE that in actuality, Jesus had come to show everyone that we ALL could do what he did, and that we could do ALL of it… including the facilitation of healing with our hands. At 40, that memory came back to me when I learned my first energy healing modality – Reiki – and felt that awesome, golden, powerful energy flow through my body and out through my hands… and I knew the recipient felt it too, I realized that it felt completely natural… hands-on healing facilitation. And I stopped considering that surreal and accepted all of that as part of my reality.

I could also tell you about many instances of instant manifestation that keep occurring more and more… and now that they occur more and more, I no longer consider the experiences as surreal, but accept them as part of my reality.

So what do I mean by this, and how is it relevant to the topic?

Well, if you break down the word surreal – specifically as 2 parts, it literally means to be above or beyond real. When does that happen? When new experiences enter our consciousness – things we have never experienced before, that are completely new. However, once they become commonplace, our perspectives shift (shift happens! LOL), and they become our reality.

I now expect that I am always able to automatically connect heart-to-heart with others; that I can almost immediately see projected timelines or the cause of an issue; I expect to feel the Universal energy connecting through me when utilizing various healing modalities; I am confident that I can help others facilitate healing – all healing – within themselves with simply the direction of energy and love; I love communing and communicating with nature and Light Beings of all kinds, across the board – the more varied, the better – to better understand what my eyes don’t always see… so it has all become an expected part of my reality.

Taking all of those phenomenal pieces into consideration, I’ll tell you that what I’ve “seen” – all that connected together for me via my trip to New Mexico – right now, in this moment, still seems surreal to me (so you know it’s a BIT out of the ordinary!). There are some huge, exciting changes to our existence that are starting to happen right now, and even more yet that are coming our way in the very near future. Much that has been hidden will soon become uncovered; much that has previously caused trepidation and fear will soon be understood, and then joyously accepted.

How do I know? Well… I’m considering the track record thus far, and would say the odds are pretty solid. I’d also say that once I sat and sponged in all of the “missing links” that were as surreal to me as the information I had received myself… well, that was the validation I needed.

What fun!

But you want details, you say? What fun is THAT? Dig deep down; do the work yourself… and you’ll realize that you know, too. Because this is for all of us; more and more things that have been surreal are now becoming more and more commonplace… and will soon be the new real, period.  🙂
