Enjoy “Sea Spirits” while reading the post.
For eons women have been conditioned to get what they want and need in life through being the complacent, compassionate mother, daughter, friend, lover. To use their feminine wiles. But now in the new energy we as women are asked to bring in the balanced male energy. To learn to receive which is a feminine energy coupled with setting boundaries and standing up for who we are. We are being asked to make a radical shift from the old feminine to the new balanced masculine and feminine meld.
We have carried as women, the heavy emotions, issues and turmoil that resides in the hearts of humanity. That had its place in the old energy, in fact it was considered a virtue. But now, we are standing up for who we truly are. We are releasing our caretaking roles. It takes tremendous courage to do this, because there’s still a part of us that believes that we need that masculine energy in our life to feel safe and secure. Often that comes in as a partner, boyfriend, father figure etc. And to relinquish that energy from our life feels a little frightening, because then we think we are totally alone in the world. But often when we are in relationship with a male, especially an old energy relationship, we sacrifice ourselves for that sense of security. It becomes too high a price to pay. We are being asked in this new consciousness, to set boundaries, and one way of setting boundaries is to release our role as caretakers. It doesn’t necessarily mean leaving a partner. But it does require us to disconnect from the suffering of humanity. It may look as if we are being very selfish, and we are. But this is a necessary step in our ascension process.
Those around us will often feel abandoned by us, and possibly very angry at us. I have had this happen to me. But, the question of the day is, are you willing to become the free and sovereign being that you are, the being that embodies your spirit right here and right now in your life. Are you willing to show other women that it is okay to be a strong, sovereign, self-loving person, and still have that gentle nature that is also yours.
In my own life, I am getting to the point where I can no longer afford to give away my energies. When I do things that are less than joyful, my body reacts. I may have a minor accident, or an illness. When I am not honoring my feelings and instead compromising myself for someone else’s comfort and joy, I get kicked in the butt. My own body is a reminder to me of what I am doing. It’s a glorious messenger. And I am beginning to listen to it.
We are the courageous ones who are in the forefront of this Ascension movement. We have everything we need to be the sovereign, self loving beings that we are meant to be. We don’t have to strive to be ‘perfect’ to embody spirit right now in our life. We are perfect just the way we are. The only thing we need to do is to do things that are joyful. And sometimes that means saying no. Saying no to others’ requests, and to our own guilt and fears. Allowing the feelings of guilt, fear and anxiety to come through us but not own them. Those feelings that we think we need to hold onto for others are not meant to be within our energies. Often the heaviness, sadness, and guilt are not ours. It’s time to let them go. It’s time to allow ourselves to do the things that make us feel good, just for ourselves. It could be spending more time alone. It could be creating something just for yourself. To spend the holidays alone if you wish to, or to celebrate Christmas in July. Or not at all! You most certainly know what feels good to you. Can you allow yourself that gift? When you do, it reinforces something in you that will change the very cellular structure of your body.
Are you willing to stand tall? Yes, to stand out from the crowd. To stand up and say “Yes, I embrace all of me. Yes, I choose to feel joy. Yes I choose to embrace spirit right here and right now. I am worthy, I am ready. I do not need to lower my vibrations anymore to make life more comfortable for anyone else.” The others in your life you were holding energies for can find their joy, and their divinity. You are then a living example of someone who has found their balanced masculine and feminine, and who radiates joy. In the New Energy, THAT IS THE WAY WE GIVE TO OTHERS. By being the example, the new potential for others to follow.
It is mostly women that are in the forefront of this Ascension movement, because we were more open to the feeling energies. Men are finding it more difficult to open to their feelings. So, we can be the leaders now, and help the men to open up to their divinity as well.
In my life, I am learning to be discerning as to what energies I invite into my life. Including my own aspects and parts of myself that have been wounded. I invite all of them in to my safe space. And the ones that are not ready to come in, I allow them to go out and find their way elsewhere.
I have experienced many pitfalls on the way to ascension, and it seems the biggest one is the belief that as women we are supposed to be carrying the burdens, the emotional trauma, the heartbreak of those around us and those in the world. That is not why we are here in this new energy. We are here to embrace our divinity. We are here to shine our light. We are here to show that it is okay - it is magnificent in fact, to be selfish. Yes it is more than okay, it is essential, to the health of our body of consciousness.
So dear sisters – allow yourself to shine your light – allow yourself to be selfish!
One thing I discovered being a musician and artist is that a work of art or music can be technically perfect but can lack real ‘soul.’ That the so-called imperfections sometimes are what make the work unique and relatable to other humans.
One of the biggest illusions, the greatest lie going, is that you must strive to ‘Be Spiritual.’ That you have to perfect yourself before you can ascend. That you have to display certain characteristics, heal certain issues, act a certain way, be always loving, forgiving, and patient for example before you can receive your enlightenment. That you must strive for this ideal.
If that is what you embrace, then by law of attraction you will continue to ‘strive’, or search for yourself and your enlightenment. In an earlier post entitled, “Perfectionism in Spirituality” I explained that the Masters of the past were also human, and displayed idiosyncracies, but stories were passed down throughout time that they were perfect, saintly beings. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Once they stopped trying to perfect themselves, and accepted all of their humanness, they became enlightened.
But then our society holds up impossible to attain images of the ‘perfect’ body, the ‘perfect’ lifestyle, and our religions teach us that we are ‘imperfect’ beings who need forgiveness. So it’s no wonder that we carry these concepts over into the spiritual arena. What happens when we beat ourselves up for not being this perfected spiritual being is that we pull in past memories, from this or other lifetimes where we believed we had done something less than ‘good.’ We actually believe that we have to heal or transform the event. But the problem with that is we are not our past. We are spiritual beings having human experiences. Period!
Our soul took the wisdom from the experience, yes. But it is not who we are or who we continue to be unless we choose that. One of the most difficult things to wrap our minds around is that we are perfect exactly as we are.
Instead we push ourselves to become better human beings, better spiritual beings. It’s exhausting. It’s a waste of time. Enlightenment is just a breath away. There are no courses you need to take, no books you need to buy, no rituals you need to practice. That can become a bit of an addiction, a distraction. Because do you notice that there’s always one more cd to buy, one more channelled message to read, one more issue to resolve? Where does it end? When will it be done?
What is actually happening in the process of ascension is we are recalibrating our bodies and minds to a faster vibration in order to embody our spirit, here in this lifetime, on this planet. And as this happens we will be releasing patterns of thinking and being that no longer serve this end. But that being we are beginning to embrace isn’t necessarily one who walks on water, or parts the seas, walks around curing the sick, or sprouts wings and a halo.
It’s not necessarily someone who cares about saving an endangered species or the soul of his fellow-man. It’s actually someone who doesn’t care much about anything in particular.
You will probably lose interest in the ‘new age’ altogether.
You will probably have less and less interest in ‘making things happen’, or fix anything.
You will become more grounded, more peaceful in the full understanding that all is well, and that all your needs will be met easily.
You will walk around in a knowingness that everyone else is just where they need to be, and you’re not trying to prove to them or yourself that you know something they don’t.
As you move out of linear time you will realize that your enlightenment already happened, so there’s no anxiety about it.
One of the hardest things to get over is the concept that ’tis better to give than to receive.’ Because if you are wanting to become enlightened, to remember who you really are, you need to get over that one! Because the foundation of the new energy is about receiving. It’s about receiving the abundant energies available to you in order to create your desires. You can’t give those energies to anyone else, it goes against the laws of the universe. It simply will not work.
In fact, it’s being a bit arrogant. it’s saying that others are weak, that they are incapable of creating for themselves. And even if you tried to give it to them, it simply wouldn’t work.
But you are giving to them by your example, by being a living, breathing example of someone who loves themselves enough to create with the abundant energies available to EVERYONE.
You are also a living, breathing example of someone who accepts themselves, and all their so-called imperfections. Someone who knows that they are a creator god embodied in the human experience.
The process of ascension can take its toll on our bodies. The cycles of massive integration and assimilation of rarefied light often leave many of us exhausted and just not feeling well. It’s imperative for those undergoing the ascension process to take care of their bodies. Often we ignore our emotions, which are telling us that something doesn’t feel right, and we take on situations, relationships and responsibilities we believe no one else can do but ourselves.
But then if we are taking on more than our minds and bodies can handle, there is inevitably a breakdown somewhere. The added stress on our already stressed bodies can take a serious toll. If we paid attention to our feelings, this can be avoided. In other words, sometimes we do not want to participate in something, but we feel pressured to do so. If we ignore our feelings, and ‘press on’… usually our body will ‘take the hit.’ We may get a cold, become even more exhausted, or worse.
If that happens, do not be hard on yourself. This is a learning process. See the gift in your body’s symptoms. It’s guidance. You are being guided to perhaps slow down, or even to let go of something or someone who is not serving your highest interests. Or maybe it’s time to allow others to step in and take over a situation for you or at least assist you with it.
See your body as a wise friend who is trying to tell you something that they know is in your best interest. We have a way of denying and fooling ourselves about situations in our life. But the body will never go into denial, for it is a corporeal expression of our innermost feelings and beliefs. Thankfully, we really can’t put anything past it.
Please honor your body, for it is the vehicle that you took on to be here at this amazing time in the history of the planet. Please be kind to it, even as far as seeing its beauty. This is no time to be judging it as not attractive enough, too overweight, etc. Your body is your spirit in flesh. Yes, in time the new body will come online as we integrate our light body, but meanwhile see the beauty of your body now.
You may be weary as the ascension process continues, but know there is an end in sight.
It takes courage to be in the forefront of the transformation process. It also takes courage to be able to set boundaries and care give yourself rather than others. It may seem selfish, but in actuality it is going to gift everyone in your life, everyone on the planet, with light and an opening for them to also ascend when they are ready.
When you are tired, rest. When you are hungry, eat. When you want to walk outdoors, and connect with nature, do so. When you want to be alone, make arrangements to do so. Otherwise you will find the ascension process to be tremendously debilitating.
At some point you will have to decide between what others think of you and your own well-being. There has been tremendous pressure to be giving, to be the care-givers, especially women, but men are not exempt from the influence. The are taught to power through and ‘be a man’ and ignore their feelings. But in the awakening, you begin to let go of that hypnosis. It gets easier, but sometimes your best friend, your body, will need to remind you.
So, until you can more easily listen to and trust your feelings, let your body be your guide
What thought makes you feel more ‘normal?’ or more like you will be accepted? That you created something (A new car, money, a healing, more joy and peace, etc) easily, without much effort or no effort, or that you worked really hard to create it?
That is an important distinction, because it’s the difference between the old and new consciousness. In the old energy, it was considered noble to have worked hard for an accomplishment. Having something come easily was viewed as suspect, as ‘good luck’ or just strange. How many times did you hear someone say, “he doesn’t deserve that (windfall, car, job, etc. ). He just sits around and does nothing, he’s just a lazy bum!” Or, “she gets everything just handed to her.”
Deservability. Somewhere along the line we became hypnotized into believing that we had to work for what we wanted, that things don’t come easily, that if they do, there is something wrong, there will be a price to pay, and that there’s “no free lunch.” So, as we awaken to our true selves, to our divinity, and as we remember that we are creator gods pretending to be human, we may have some initial conflict. We may slow down or stop our creations because, since they come more easily we feel undeserving, or we fear that we stand out from the crowd just a little too much.
We may be putting off our prosperity for that reason. What if we appear to be too different. We’ve been killed in other lifetimes for being different. So we may still carry that fear around. As we look around us we see people working hard, one, two, sometimes three jobs just to survive. Over the years I would often ask a friend, if they won a million dollars, what would they do, and every one of them said they would first share it with friends and family. One even said he would travel the country giving it away to the needy ones.
While this on the surface may sound noble, it betrays a belief that they are not worthy of enjoying the money. It’s why most people end up broke after winning millions of dollars. They simply can’t justify having their dreams come true. Of course in some cases they discover that money does not buy happiness, but that’s another story.
A friend of mine, a veteran, said he feels guilty receiving more money from the government for his service to his country because maybe he will be taking it away from those who “deserve it more”. The belief that there is not enough to go around, the belief in lack is so strong. But it is inaccurate. Simply put, EVERYONE HAS ACCESS TO THE SAME ENERGIES. Everyone has the ability to create what they want and need, and if they are not in the vibration of receiving it, you can hand them one million dollars, and they will lose it in short order.
In the past (this or past lives) we may have misused power or money, so we vowed never to do that again. Our beliefs around receiving are coming up to be released. We are coming to understand that we are worthy, simply because we exist. We are beginning to understand that it’s o.k. to just allow the good stuff to roll. And in the new energy, it’s all about allowing, it’s the feminine energy of receiving.
And, once people on this planet recognize their ability to create easily what they are wanting and needing to make their stay here more enjoyable, it will level the playing field. No one will feel jealous of someone else’s stuff, there won’t be battles and power struggles, there won’t be feeding off each other’s energies, because people will recognize that they are sovereign.
And when the question comes up, if someone asks why do you want more money, health, passion, etc, the answer will simply be, “Because I can.”
Everybody’s got one – a story, that is. What’s yours? Is it a story of barely enough? Always sick? Too much drama? Never enough time, money, health, Love? You want change desperately, but when your life begins to change, you desperately cling to your story.
Maybe you want a better life, but you don’t feel you have earned it yet. That’s quite a story. So you allow just so much good stuff in, and then you stop it. And then when the stuff you want isn’t coming you blame it on your inability to create. But you ARE creating. You are creating a life in which you don’t get what you want because you think you haven’t earned it yet.
We want change. But we want to hang onto our stories…they keep us warm at night. Maybe we want to be the embodied masters in this lifetime, but we think we haven’t earned that yet. We haven’t become holy enough, perfect enough, humble enough. We are afraid to let go of the old identity, even if the identity was painful. It’s who we are. Who will we be if we relinquish the old story? Will we become so full of self-love that we become arrogant? Who will we lose from our life? Dare we own our true creator abilities?
The good news is we are remembering who we are. We have access to the abilities of the avatar. But we still see ourselves as the puny little human too much of the time. The silly human who doesn’t know what they are doing, so we wait and see, we wait to create because we aren’t ready yet. When will we be ready? What will it take to feel our god-selves? How many times can we tell ourselves to be patient?
We can continue feeding ourselves the little feel good catch phrases and not take full responsibility for our enlightenment…or we can choose to create what we desire using the amazing and free energies available to us right now.
As was once eloquently said, “Seize the day!” Take a chance. Allow the bountiful energies available to serve you. Don’t hold back! If it doesn’t work out exactly the way you wanted or expected, don’t sweat it. It’s not like you get only one shot at it. Stay open. Don’t get overly defined about what you want, but stay with the feeling, the essence of what you want. Don’t over think it, but don’t bury your dreams either. Let them out to air. Breath yourself into them.
We are comfortable with our stories until we begin awakening. Then they begin to feel like a heavy wet blanket upon us. They become more and more uncomfortable, yet we are fearful of relinquishing them. What if our life changes so much that we can’t handle it? what if we don’t recognize ourselves anymore? Yes, there will be fear. But no great change can come without it.
If you are reading this, you are releasing your stories, at least the ones that are not working for you anymore. They are coming up to be transformed. Dare to cast off the big, heavy wet blanket and walk into your dreams!
You have been creating many wonderful things in your life, things you probably take for granted. So you don’t give them too much thought or concern. But the bigger dreams, the things or situations that seem more out of reach, you think about more, worry about more and are probably a subject of some frustration.
When we want something that feels out of our reach, there’s usually fears. We are afraid we don’t deserve it, we didn’t ‘earn’ it, we’re not worthy of it, it’s not practical, what if we get it then lose it? What if having it makes us stand out too much from the crowd? How will having it change our life? Will we have to make sacrifices to keep it? Maybe our higher self doesn’t want us to have it, and a myriad of other reasons.
It’s no wonder we keep so many wonderful things at a distance from ourselves. It’s just too painful to even think about them. But, the dreams don’t just go away, I have discovered. They lay there, just under the surface, building energy, because it’s all about energy. Resistance builds around the dreams. And that resistance is wanting to express somehow. It often expresses itself in a bodily imbalance: Fatigue, illness, or worse.
When we are resisting our desires and dreams. It clogs us up energetically. There are so many fears surrounding our desires. What most people do is shove the dream away, and just live with the resistance. It’s why there are so many heart attacks and heart issues. There’s conflicting emotions. I’m discovering that when I desire something, and on a heart level it feels right, (and I am referring to something just for myself, not involving any other person) and when there are fears around that desire, it’s an opportunity to move through those fears. In fact, that’s what’s happening to so many of us right now that are going through the awakening process.
We are facing fears and old patterns in order to clear them. The trick is to not over analyze them, going back in time to find out where it came from. It’s more a process of feeling the fear, without judgement. Walking through it with our soul self, that part of us that has gleaned the wisdom from the experience that created the fear in the first place. Because it has, and it knows that we are worthy of anything we desire.
The fear may have originated in childhood, maybe from an encounter or someone passing on their limiting beliefs to us. The event may have been traumatic, or it may have been a series of influences that became a pattern in us, a deeply embedded one. But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just a role we played in order to learn. It was just an experience. So in order to release it, it’s necessary to feel the feelings, and to bring in the understanding from our soul self. In this way we neutralize the fears and clear them from our DNA.
Then we can more easily create our heart’s desires. Interestingly, it’s not that hard to create. There’s an abundance of energy just waiting for us to use for that very purpose. It’s just sitting there waiting for us to activate it. The difficult part is our belief that it IS difficult. That there has to be some kind of struggle involved. But when we have the courage to face the feelings that come up around our desires, without blame or judgement, feel them with the help of our higher self, then they can be neutralized or put another way, alchemized. Then the process of creating become one of joy. Allowing the good stuff to roll. Because each time we do this, we release more resistance and the process gets easier. And, actually, it’s not so much the end result, but it’s the joy of the journey. It’s purifying our DNA and our cells and our emotions so that we can embody our spirit.
I am in the process of buying a new car. As I sit here sipping my coffee, looking over at my 2000 Saturn SL, I feel a tenderness for the heap of metal in front of me.
I have been through so much with you, dear car of mine. All the miles I’ve traveled in you, all the stuff I’ve cluttered you up with: my shoes, clothes, journals, and bags of sundry items. All the hamburgers I’ve eaten while sitting in you in the parking lot of McDonalds! Even sleeping in you occasionally during the day when I was far from home and tired. Dear car, I will miss you. We’ve been through so much together. So many emotions. So many experiences. Funny, I never used to feel this way about giving up a car. Maybe I’m getting sentimental in my old age. Dear Car of mine you could never really be replaced. You will always have a place in my heart.
As I sit here looking at my auto, I recognize something about it. Yes it’s a bit worn down… needs new tires, could use a good thorough cleaning and some body work, a bit old in car-years, but it’s engine is solid.
A bit like myself. I’m a bit run down… kind of worn out… some ‘dents and bruises’….yes, this ascension is hard on the body… even harder on the mind and the emotions… gone through a lot, but still going strong.
Dear friend, If you’re still here, you are stronger than you may realize, for this is no easy process, this enlightenment. You may be a little tired, hell, a lot tired, and worn down. You may sometimes feel a little old, vulnerable, and maybe discouraged…but know that you are solid, you are strong. You are a NEW ENERGY PIONEER.
You are transcending the physical body, although it may not feel that way. But your body is being ‘reworked’ right down to the DNA. Everything about you is being reworked to embody your spirit. It may feel as if you are falling apart but rest assured these are just symptoms of mutation. It’s easy to convince yourself that you are sick or even dying, but know that there is no truly easy way to get through enlightenment. However, it can be easier, if you don’t try to resist it. Resisting it means trying to heal yourself, or trying to figure out all your issues, using your mind.
I found that as I focused less on the ‘issues’ or the physical symptoms or relationship issues, the easier everything became. It’s all about releasing the resistance to our enlightenment. It’s why I want you to remember that YOU ARE STRONG. You wouldn’t have taken this journey if you weren’t. Yes, it’s more intense than any of us expected, but the fact that you are still here, and reading this means you have weathered the worst of it.
You’re permitted to cry, to get mad. And you are also entitled to feel good in spite of what’s going on around you in the world, and in your circle of friends or your family. One thing we are releasing as lightworkers is the notion that we have to suffer along with everyone else. Actually, we are now becoming the examples of the NEW SPIRITUAL PERSON: someone who can have it all: a human being who has embodied spirit, while enjoying life here on this planet. Someone who can walk the planet any way they choose. If they choose prosperity, health, and passion, then they just allow the energies to serve them. So relax, you are being guided, by you, to be the embodied master.
So, dear car of mine, I will be moving on, I will buy myself a new car. It will be shiny, and clean, and efficient. it will have a much more sophisticated engine, and more ease in navigating the roads. It will be much more fuel-efficient. It will be fun to drive. But you dear car will always remain a part of me.
author’s note: It would be beneficial to drink as much pure water as you can. It helps to balance the body through the purifying process.
