You Are Getting Closer

You are getting closer to your enlightenment, in spite of what you may be experiencing physically and emotionally in your life.  In fact, the more unsettling things become, often it is a sign that you are clearing on even a deeper level.  But to your human self, it may feel like you are just not getting it, or you are doing something wrong.  You may become increasingly disillusioned, wondering if you will ever get past issues of a physical or emotional nature.

Sometimes when I feel that I’ve had enough of the challenges of being human, of going through this amazing yet often overwhelming transformational process, and I consider going to the other side, I get sad. Not because I am afraid of dying. I’ve done it thousands of times, but, I am sad about leaving. I would miss the little pleasures. And at the risk of sounding sentimental, here are some of them.

I would miss that first cup of coffee at the café in the morning. I would miss that warm ocean breeze.  I would miss the cacophony of crickets resounding throughout the night outside my window. I would miss my nightly walks. It’s a sacred time for me as I gaze at the stars. I would miss laughing with friends, the few I have left. I would miss listening to my music, those creations that give me so much pleasure. I would miss the taste of food, and I would even miss a good cry.

It’s the little things that, as angels, would make us nostalgic for being physical again.

But now we want to enjoy those moments more on our own terms, with our soul in our bodies, in good health and with plenty of money in our life. With passion in our heart. But a different kind of passion. Not a passion for a mate or a career necessarily, but a passion for life, for just being here. For feeling that fulfillment from the inside. And then watching it manifest on the outside.

We are becoming more lovingly and healthfully detached from the world news, from the suffering of others, even from the limited thoughts that come from our mind. We are detaching from the distractions, all the emotions that tell us we are not ready, we are not good enough, spiritually evolved enough, still searching, still learning, still needing challenges. From fears that tell us there is something wrong with us, that we need fixing, that we need processing, analyzing, or that we need more lessons.  That we need something from the outside to save us.

But we just need more practice identifying with our spirit self, our soul self, and less identifying with our mind. That’s what takes time, and of course the physical body is the last to catch up, generally, with our consciousness. But leave room too for potential of spontaneous or rapid healing of the physical issues.

In my own life, I have had healings of issues of a physical nature that were considered incurable from a medical standpoint. They were healings, not by doctors, or medicine, or anything outside myself. In fact the conditions just slowly vanished on their own, never to return.

So with so-called incurable or persistent symptoms… Don’t ever give up on your body. Encourage it along in this process. It’s transforming in a major way. Try not to over identify with the illnesses or symptoms. It may take a while, but this too shall pass. And the same holds for the emotional symptoms.

Spontaneous healings are happening more and more, and medicine can’t figure it out. Physicians are not able at this time to understand the ascension process in the human being. They can try to treat symptoms, but sometimes when that doesn’t work, it’s time to own our divinity and allow it to do all the healing necessary. We can even remove the word healing and replace it with the word transforming. Setting free stuck energies. Loving ourselves as we are, so that our soul can come in closer and take care of it for us. Our soul has the capacity to do that.

Our body has the ability to totally rebalance. But it is working with the predominant energies. And if our mind keeps interfering with worry and concern, doubt and fear, the body will accommodate that. That’s OK, it’s a process and you are doing fine. Remember, you have been living in a mental world for so long, where the mind is considered supreme. Where logic and making decisions based on past experience are seen as intelligent and good. The mind was considered God for a long time. Going beyond the mind is relatively new. So give yourself a break. It will take the mind some time to trust in the soul. It’s happening, and interestingly, as we stop responding to all the fears generated from our mind, the mind gets a little panicky. And that is because the mind thinks that it can’t do its job of protecting us. It says, “Whoa, she’s not worrying about that serious condition much anymore? How can I protect her from it then?”  

The closer you get to your enlightenment, the more stuck energies come to the surface to be set free. Often they are ancestral and ancient in nature. Imagine them as small children who are creating havoc because they just want to feel loved, but instead feel lost and abandoned.  You don’t have to figure out how to heal yourself.  You only need to have deep compassion for yourself, for everything you are going through.  You may feel alone, but you are not.  You have so much love surrounding you that if you allowed yourself to feel into it, it would blow your mind.  So continue to love yourself as much as you can, and trust this process.  Continue to allow yourself to remember who you really are.

Ascension and the Healing Crisis

Enjoy Sea Melody, from my album, Simply Divine, while reading the post.

You are in the process of releasing your past.  the ancient patterns that have created emotional and physical dis-ease. In this natural process, you may temporarily feel a little lost.  You may be asking, who then do I become?

You become more yourself, more of yourself.

And as you release these energies, you do so by honoring yourself, and by honoring your ancestors (and, when you think about it, you are your own ancestors, you may be your great-grandmother or great-grandfather)…and you set them all free.

Meanwhile you may be feeling all kinds of stuff…sadness, loneliness, anger, confusion, and you may be experiencing illness in your physical body.  These are all ascension symptoms…they are just coming up to be released.  They, for the most part, are ancient.  You need not try to figure any of them out with your mind.  Do what you need to make yourself comfortable.  Feel the feelings.  For the most part they are not yours.  Some have been buried for so long that they have become petrified in your body.  But not to worry, they are not permanent residents…remember your body is the last to come on board with your evolving consciousness, so don’t let your mind distract you from that truth with its fear and worry.  It takes as long as it takes.

But, having said that, it’s o.k. to go to a doctor or practitioner if you can’t seem to quiet the fears.  There is no right or wrong.  Do what gives you the most peace…eventually you will come to realize, if you haven’t already, that your body is purging old patterns and old systems, even sometimes in the form of a disease or two…and it is doing this in response to the download of rarified light and love coming onto the Planet and into your body, and this process is going to go so much more smoothly if you accept it, and keep your mind’s fears and concerns in the background, not the foreground of your day-to-day life.

Sometimes things seem to get worse.  There is something called the Herxheimer Reaction.*  It’s what happens in the body after it is given a substance to eliminate the bacterial toxins.  The body gets worse, the symptoms worsen, before there is a healing, because the toxins take longer to release.  It can also be called a healing crisis.  That is what is happening in our bodies, and even in our minds and emotions.  The symptoms feel worse for a while.  The body is responding to the growing intensity of light, and is working overtime to purge the energies that can’t sustain themselves in that light.  If we keep this in mind, we will not need to overreact and create drama.  Because, right now, our creative abilities are very potent in this new energy.  What we focus on, whether it is something we enjoy or something we fear, will manifest, and quickly.  So it’s important to, yes, feel all the feelings as they present themselves.  Yes, express them all safely, from tears to pounding a pillow, or yelling or whatever you are feeling.  And in that acceptance of them, they do transmute.  Just don’t over identify with them.  Remember they are not you.  They are from your distant past.

They are an accumulation of ancient toxins that are being purged.  Even if you think the feeling is a reaction from something that happened an hour ago, something to do with your spouse, or your friend, or your kids.  Yes, some of those feelings are because you are tired and you are impatient and want this ascension thing to be done already.  Who doesn’t?  No one wants to be uncomfortable.  But, interestingly, one of the toxins that are being released now, is the addiction to being uncomfortable.  The victim energy that is pervasive in our world.  But don’t worry about the rest of the world.  They are going at their own pace.  But you, dear new energy pioneer, are going at warp speed, even if you do not recognize it.  You are doing in this one lifetime what would take several lifetimes to do.

You are beginning to feel the love growing in you, from your divinity, and for your human self.  And your human self has been a neglected child of yours.  Those people in your life that appear before you who seem so needy of your attention and affections are merely a reflection of your own inner child who has been starving for your love and attention.  Some of you succumbed to illness and disease just to get a modicum of attention.  Or to have a reason to retreat into your own space for a while.  It felt like there were no other options.  You didn’t want to appear to be ‘selfish’…putting your needs first over others in your life…but that game is coming to an end.  You can’t afford to play in that sandbox anymore.  You certainly can’t afford to play the game of appearing to others with a sunny, nurturing, compliant disposition when at times you are feeling quite the opposite, or you just want to be by yourself, enjoying your own company.

And as you fill yourself up first, you will appear quite sunny, quite content with life and in love with yourself. You may then want to share that joy with others, but not from a place of putting on a happy face to make others more comfortable.  In fact, you may make some quite uncomfortable.  You won’t be doing the knee-jerk response of dimming your light.  You will be shining the light from your soul, through your eyes, and it will show just by the way you walk into a room.  Not everyone can handle that kind of radiance.

*The Herxheimer Reaction is an immune system reaction to the toxins (endotoxins) that are released when large amounts of pathogens are being killed off, and the body does not eliminate the toxins quickly enough.
