More gifts from our angel "down under"...
"I am still 28, Declaration of Joy."
Too often is heart's desire at odds with the brain's understanding. The brain is easily beguiled by surface-level forms, quick to attribute 'truth' to whatever it is told, quicker still to change it's 'mind' as new information comes to light. The heart, meanwhile, knows nothing of this. Cardiac perception drifts along undercurrents, informing us (if we choose to listen) of the most joyful route of all the possible paths through our lives.
I choose to swim below the surface, and move the way joy makes me move, because I trust joy, and the unknown source it arises from.
I choose to swim below the surface, and move the way joy makes me move because I trust joy, and it's origins - I trust that even at times when what feels joyful is seemingly at odds with what 'makes sense,' there is wisdom in what feels joyful. I trust that by swimming below the surface and seeking the undercurrent of joy in everyday life, I am not being 'silly,' or 'foolish.' I trust I am not being lazy, not being a slacker, not being naive or unrealistic. I trust that by swimming below the surface and seeking the undercurrent of joy in everyday life I am, in fact, changing the nature of everyday life.
I choose to swim below the surface, and move the way joy makes me move because I trust joy, it's source, and it's wisdom... I trust the power of joy to transform our world. I trust the process of creation, knowing that all creation begins within, invisible and unseen. I trust that by honoring and aligning my actions with what is joyful, what I am creating is an individual life full of joy... and thus increasing the overall level of joy within our collective global society.
I choose to swim below the surface, and move the way joy makes me move because I trust joy: it's source, it's wisdom, and it's transformational potency. I trust that even when the whispers of joy seem to beckon me onward into a scary place, a place of darkness and pain, that even then joy knows what it is doing. I trust that even when the way joy makes me move does not feel 'good,' this is not because I am not following joy - rather this is because joy, growth, and pain are inextricably interrelated, and indeed often one and the same, inseparable.
I choose to swim below the surface, and move the way joy makes me move because I trust joy: it's source, it's wisdom, it's transformational potency, and it's pain. I trust I trust the dynamic, ever-shifting nature of joy: I trust that even when there is nothing in me that I can recognize as 'joy,' this does not mean that joy is gone. I trust the space it leaves behind as it seems to depart from me, and so I move forward into that space and faithfully investigate the emptiness.
I choose to swim below the surface, and move the way joy makes me move because I trust joy: it's source, it's wisdom, it's transformational potency, it's pain, and it's disappearance. I trust that I am not other than joy, that in trusting joy I am in fact trusting myself. I trust that I know more than I know that I know, and that although some of my consciousness does indeed travel along surface-level truths of material/temporal reality much, much 'more' of what is essentially 'me' is in essence the same as what is essentially 'joy.' I trust that by choosing to trust joy I am choosing to trust myself, and so consciously deciding to be what I already am.
I choose to swim below the surface, and move the way joy makes me move because I trust joy: I trust it's source, it's wisdom, it's transformational potency, it's pain, it's disappearance, and above all I trust it's intimate, familiar sentiency.
There is plenty of polarity to go around. Revolutions all over the globe offer up a world view that is anything but united. We are pushing the limits, testing the restraints, seeing just how far it will hold before it breaks.
Children do this. Place a limit or a rule on the behavior of a child and he’ll immediately almost break it and watch what happens. If there is no reaction she’ll move closer to breaking it, awaiting the repercussions. If they are not decisive enough – the rules are blatantly ignored; to hell with the consequences! What has been forbidden is just too good to ignore, at any cost.
Despite every effort to the contrary, oneness is upon us. We as a species have seen beyond the chains that bind us. We’ve decided that’s where we want to be; indeed we’ve discovered our truth. There will be no stopping this shift until our unity is palpable on every shore and in each heart.
We’ve done this ourselves. There has been One force that enlivened our transformation and that force is love. We have chosen love. As my son said a few days ago, we’ve tried everything else. Nothing else works. It is the truth of our very essence that is our power. We are love.
We are moving very quickly now towards the galactic alignment that we’ve been told will signify the end of duality, a shift in our way of life. Despite predictions and promises, none of us actually knows what it’ll look or feel like, not exactly. Yet there is one thing that can be surmised from even a cursory view at current headlines. We are coming together as never before.
Whether this is due to a criminal banking system, a corrupt government or a natural disaster; we have joined hands, hearts and minds to find solutions. This is unity. It gets stronger every day and is felt in surprising places.
The energy of our light is so very powerful. It’s broken through the cabal-inflicted darkness and flooded the place. There is nothing we can’t do.
This simple decision, to love, is transforming the world. You are, without exception, exquisite. Take a look into your eyes today and say hello to a piece of divinity. You did it! You have hung in there at every impossible moment and met each obstacle. You are here now because of your sheer will and absolute love. In truth, many times it wasn’t that much fun. You stayed anyway. You’re doing a great job.
I’m not sure what precisely you are here to do, yet I can tell you will full confidence what you are here to feel. You are here to experience agape. With every ounce of emotion you have, love yourself. You are one in seven billion and absolutely perfect. God, in putting this whole thing together, needed just one more piece in order to pull it off. That piece is you. You complete the puzzle; it is now a work of art.
This masterpiece that is creation is alive and crawling with artists. Each moment there’s a new stroke, a bold color, or a subtle nuance added. We are the painters and the patrons, the brushes and the paint, the canvas and the pencils, the mind, heart and soul of this work. Our masterpiece evolves as we breathe in and out…love. This world is an emission of our brilliance, a product of our combined agape. Our eyes behold the reflection of One.
There is no other who holds the brush; this work is our very own. We are the One we’ve been waiting for.
It snowed last night. Not much, but enough to send the geese south. There has already been a dozen flocks overhead, headed that way, and it’s barely 7:00 AM. Regardless of the date or celestial happenings, time marches on. This November, for all intents and purposes, looks pretty similar to last November here on earth.
That’s the thing about time, illusory or not, it is not stagnant. This past weekend, walking out of the laundry room, a thought emerged; “Someday is here.” A small idea really, just three words. Yet it put so much in a brand new light.
The eternal optimist, there has always been something better coming. “Someday there will be dishes that match.” “Someday these nails will get a proper manicure.” “Someday there will be a trip to that really beautiful bright blue water where you can see all the fish.” “Someday the Thanksgiving dinner table will look just like a Norman Rockwell painting.” This “someday list” is all stuff.
Einstein said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.” The someday list has not been fulfilled because although the words were there with a tinge of hope, the actions never backed them up.
As we approach December 2012, our authenticity is sticking out everywhere. We can’t help but be who we are, and it’s all okay. Sometimes these nails get painted and the house is typically full for Thanksgiving. The truth is, we are living the life we’ve chosen right along. Only now, with the clarity of awareness, we are seeing what it is we’ve wanted all along. It has little to do with what the media has been telling us we should want. It comes from within.
It is there you’ll find your deepest truth. We may not be exactly who we thought we were, but we are perfect. Acceptance and love is what will gently nudge us towards ascension. Those geese are moving this morning in the direction their internal guidance system pointed them. That’s exactly how it’ll be for us.
Our heart will take over and do the driving. This is the year we all get to “someday”. Whether our dishes or our clothes match is hardly the point. We’ve come now to actualize love. What does love look like in human form?
It’s us, in whatever form we choose. There is no method or product that can prepare you to be who you are. There is only acceptance and allowance. He’s been waiting for as many years as you’ve been breathing and she’s been planning for just as long. You are now and always have been, love.
Just be. Contentment and peace are by-products of loving without exception or condition. The realization last weekend was that everything is and has always been here. Someday is now. Love is what’s been on the table all along. Love is what you bring to every table, every day, regardless of décor. It is here because you are. Welcome to “Someday”! You are the One you’ve been waiting for.
It is self forgiveness that becomes the key element here, a vital ingredient for ascension. For blame and doubt are hallmarks of third density.
Realization of truth and acceptance of the One that you are erases all that is unreal. What is non essential is any idea contained in your mind that you MUST have something. This is not the same as desire, for desire is the fuel of creation.
Consider the things we admire in each other – passion, dedication, drive, determination. All are driven by desire. the process and progress of creation occurs as a direct result of desire. We want something. The value in achieving whatever it is we want is ours to decide. Is it that we must have this thing to be worthy or that we’d like have it as an experience?
As we move closer to a faster vibration we become conscious of the many possibilities available. We are moving from an understanding of the known universe to awareness of the multi-verse and the potential held there. Our perception expands.
In order to keep up we have to release this baggage of self-doubt. If we aren’t sure we can fly, we’ll never take the leap. Questions about the state of our physical bodies or whether or not we did it right or loved enough, weigh us down. They become irrelevant on the path to ascension.
My partner is a deep trance channel. Several years ago he did just that for a group of us, usually four or six at a time. Present during our gatherings were the “greater selves” of whoever was in the room, as well as other entities who were interested in the conversation or were our friends or who just wanted to help us find answers. His perspective at these times was as an observer.
His “higher self” was the voice who spoke through him and answered our questions, speaking for the collective of entities present. He’d often remark on the sharp contrast between what he was seeing, our magnificent greater selves, which to him appeared as huge, beautiful balls of light; and what we were saying, “How come I can’t do this? How come I can’t have this? How come I can’t be this?” It seemed ridiculous to him. Here we were, these incredibly powerful beings – equal in every way to everyone else who was gathered, pretending we weren’t!
We are at the moment now when we can stop pretending. It has been one heck of a costume party, but we no longer need to believe in the suit to enjoy it. We can believe in the truth instead.
The truth is, we are capable of answering our own questions. The power to create the life we’ve dreamed of rests in our own hearts. All negativity stems from ego – that part of us that remains attached to this third dimension and self-limitation. Do not regret the ego. He was necessary to navigate the terrain and you needed her to get to this moment. It is time now to absorb the lessons of ego without believing it is who you are.
You are an infinite particle of love, burning with the light of a thousand suns, here now to illuminate our shifting, morphing reality. You have come to love. There is no one else more capable or suited for the job than you. You are lesser than none. As we morph through the next six weeks, let go of anything that tells you otherwise.
It is time to step into your truth. You are the One you’ve been waiting for.
Welcome to the Love Quest, which this month coincides with “The Day Of Decision”.
This was not planned consciously, yet there are no accidents. It’s time to decide. Agape is a fearless act. Are you up for it?
It demands honesty, bravery and belief. In order to love ourselves we must first be aware of whom it is we are loving. The blindfolds are off, the shields are down; ego does not need protection from agape. What we need is acceptance. The only word is “yes”; it answers every protest.
“Can I love myself knowing all I’ve done?” “Can I love myself even when I’m angry?” “Can I love myself after I screwed up?” “Can I love all of my human faults?” “Can I trust myself?” “Can I fearlessly scrutinize my body and love all my parts?” “Can I let go of self-blame?” “Can I stop all this judgment?” “Really?”
On the face of it, love seems an easy choice. Would I rather be happy and uplifted or frustrated and miserable? Within us, is from where our happiness springs, and the only thing that’ll lift us up permanently. Love is not found “out there” and does not originate anywhere but your own heart. Your loves are reflections of your deepest beliefs about you. Although intellectually the choice is an easy one – our childlike tendency to be thrilled with ourselves has been eroded. Our elders and our society have taught us guilt and judgment and we’ve learned well. This is not truth.
We are on a Quest for truth and it must be taken alone. No one but you knows the depths of your self loathing or the images that you fear. It is time now to see clearly. These ideas have not served you. In this year of Revelation we are beginning to see the manipulation and control that was our life. As facts are uncovered and the plans are exposed, we are empowered. We’ve been lied to by every institution we believed in; religion, government, financial, health and education.
The time now is not for blame or regret. It is time to rebuild; the moment to love has arrived. Unconditional and fearless agape is what will empower us to demand truth and transparency from each other. For we are worth it.
One such as you is a gift to all of mankind. Your arrival was planned and celebrated by all of creation. This moment now is about the realization of your worth; the acceptance of your divinity. We are One. Source energy, God, the Creator or whatever term works for you had a brilliant plan. The success of that plan depends on you. Your part is simply told – you are here to love fearlessly. In doing so, the realization of Oneness is achieved; we will all walk in Paradise.
It is an honor to walk by your side. Our Quest continues for 6 more days, thank you for showing up! We’ve been expecting you. You are the One we’ve been waiting for.
See you tomorrow,
There hasn’t been much to say these last few days. Not for lack of movement, but for an overwhelming need for silence. It’s as if all of my words are being used up on the inside; there are no residuals remaining for this blog.
There has been a shift, and a clearing. What stands in the place of a mind compelled to “do” is a soul content to “be”. The world looks different. On a physical level I sleep deeply, dream intensely and remember little. The mental chatter has all but stopped. There were headaches for the last week or so, but they too have left me. Eating is different somehow; addictions to any particular food are gone right now.
It’s not like the challenges are gone from my life, it’s that they look merely like things to take care of. They are not definitions of anyone; they are scenes in a play.
All around there is evidence of a different way to approach life. I brought my car in for service and received an unexpected Reiki healing, from the shop manager, right there in the showroom…what a gift! Our children initiated some unexpected and unprecedented deep heart conversations...which if you have kids you know is beyond wonderful. Everywhere I look there is healing and renewal.
The news reports won’t be the place to find evidence of this shift. It will be told in our hearts. Mine has opened more than I realized was possible. It came unexpected and was not orchestrated by my mind.
Although you’ll hear and read of progress on financial and government fronts, the real answer will come from deep within you. Everywhere now, folks are rising up. We are answering the call in so many ways. Evidence surrounds us.
It wasn’t long ago we were a people mentally enslaved and seemingly without choice. Our self definition has radically altered. Thanks to thousands of lightworkers and millions of people with hundreds in the headlines – we have found our voice. It is a voice holding every possible range and it speaks just one song – freedom. Unity is not something that will arrive overnight. It has been building and becoming. It is.
We are One. Our realization of that truth is bringing us out of the closet. We help each other without expectation. We join hands in protest and in song. We talk out loud about our “Galactic Families”, about ending the corruption and creating joy; about the importance of love. It is not exactly as we expected; it is so much better.
We are allowing ourselves to seamlessly morph into Oneness. Who else but humans could do it this way? We are experiencing the fullness of our own evolution, individually and collectively. It has all the elements of life we came here for; tension, anticipation, surprise, pain, pleasure, defeat, success and love. We did this. We are doing this right now. We are performing beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. Maybe help hasn’t arrived from the skies because we are doing just fine. Everyone is watching; it’s all good. This is happening. It is happening because we say it is. We know who we are and we are doing what it is we came to do, perfectly. We are awesome! Great job!
We are the One we’ve been waiting for.
Free will is an interesting idea. We can choose. There is no cosmic decider making our decisions for our own good. It comes always to us.
As a child when I heard about free will I thought “How free is it really? When, if you make the wrong choice, this thunderbolt God will strike you down.” I was 8 years old; the beginnings of my questioning.
I am no longer a child, and today I question pretty much everything. We’ve been lied to and it no longer matters if it was deliberate or not, not really. What matters are the choices we make. In this year of 2012 our eyes are being opened. I must admit that mine are like a deer caught in headlights – they are wide open.
As each day and new revelation passes, our choices become informed choices. We are no longer feeling around in the dark, hoping not to anger the lender or God or official we are dealing with. With an idea of what’s really going on, we are claiming our place as sovereign beings of light, living in a reality that’s been controlled and manipulated by those who serve only themselves. The choice to worship, fear, listen to or obey these beings is always ours; free will.
What will you choose? The effects of your choice will play out in your every day. Realize that this choice is not evidenced only with your actions. It is demonstrated with your heart. What we haven’t been told is the truth of our own power. We’ve grown up in a manipulated world, trusting logic over intuition. The wisdom you hold is found in your heart. Its perceptual capabilities exceed those of your brain. If you nourish those, and approach each decision from a heart space rather than a head space, your will is free.
Those that have controlled us have done so with our head. They fed us information to cause fear and obedience, worship and subservience. With your heart engaged, those emotional reactions are negated. There is no fear in love.
Oneness is already understood at a deep visceral level. The ancients got it. When you hear stories of the wisdom keepers and their traditions and methods, you doubt them. That is your head, which has been fed untruths and limitations your entire life.
Listen with your heart. If what you hear is truth, you’ll know what to do. Lies feel heated and uncomfortable and can be frightening. Trust. The answers to all questions are within. Your heart will lead you to information, places and people that stimulate your own knowing.
“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
from Hamlet, by Shakespeare
