No Pain, No Gain, No More!

As we move into the New Energy, we are discovering that things don’t work the same way as they did in the old, dualistic energy.  And it can have us feeling frustrated.  But the frustration is actually because we are not used to things being easier. Continue reading “No Pain, No Gain, No More!”

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.

Manifesting in the new energy

Enjoy my song while you read!

Do you remember when you were a little child you would spend hours finger painting or drawing or playing with your toys and imagining various scenarios, maybe you were a fireman, a nurse,  a super-hero, a princess, whatever ….?    Was that not the most delicious experience?  It really didn’t matter whether you became those people or performed those roles in real life.  You were in the moment, you were creating your colorful, adventurous world, with a few simple props.

Those of you reading this will agree that we create our own reality, and that our life is what we make it.  This post is to simply remind you that the real joy is actually in the PROCESS of creating what we want.   As an artist, I can appreciate my creations as finished products, with a life of their own, but for me,  the creation was the most fun:  The paints on the canvas, the visceral quality, textures, colors, smells of the paint… not knowing exactly how it’s going to evolve or turn out.   Creating something from nothing.   taking creative risks, trying new things.    Being in the moment, molding and shaping the sculpture.   Fine tuning it.  Immersing myself in it.

Manifesting what we want in life is the same process.   Whether you are aware of it or not, you’re using your imagination to create most of the time, but on an unconscious level….Worry and anxiety, focusing on worst scenarios, all have a hand in our life experience, and are the muddy paints on our canvas.    And, as we move into the new energy, our manifesting skills are becoming more refined.  Things can come more rapidly, more easily, if we allow them to….now, some people won’t like that because they are invested in the belief that it has to be hard to be worthwhile.  

Like the painter or sculptor, or the child’s role playing, we get to choose how we want to feel.  If we are intent on only the outcome, we’ll probably take actions that are uninspired to get what we want, and that will not work well.   If we focus on the fun of it unfolding, the results will be much more satisfying.  If you want more money, what feeling will having it give you?  A sense of security, more freedom?  Then focus on those feelings, create those feelings in your imagination. And focus on how you enjoy those feelings in your life right now.  There are areas of your life in which you feel free and secure.  And of course through the law of attraction, the physical manifestations of those feelings will be drawn to you.  If you want a new home, what feeling do you get when you put yourself in it’s rooms?  A feeling of expansiveness?  Love?  belonging?   The feelings are what we are wanting anyway, aren’t they?   So, getting to the feelings will get results more quickly.   Another reason to focus more on the feeling of having what we want, is so that the universe can deliver it to us in more ways….it may not be exactly what we expected but it will satisfy us on a deep level.   Say you want a new car.  You focus on the money thinking that if you had more you could buy yourself a new vehicle.   But if you just imagine being more mobile, feeling yourself traveling with ease,  The car may come from an unexpected place.  Maybe you’ll inherit one from a relative.  You’ll win one in a raffle.   In my case, I got my current car because my old unreliable one was damaged by another vehicle (I wasn’t present and no one was hurt), and the insurance money was just enough for my new car.

When an artist is painting, he will often remove areas and start fresh. so it is with our creating in our life.  Sometimes we have blocks to having what we want, old beliefs that are in our way.   We can remove them from our canvas.  For example, a friend of mine was on disability insurance, and she felt discouraged because she could’t seem to have enough energy to do more things in her life like starting her own counseling business.  But upon closer examination, she realized that she was afraid she would lose her disability insurance, her sense of security, if she got better.

Another example is a woman wants to leave an abusive relationship.  She is excited by the possibilities of a new life, but she is also frightened of losing her security base.  So she remains in the relationship.  In my own life, I was wanting more emotional and financial independence.  I was in a difficult relationship that provided me with financial support and a sense of belonging.  But the relationship was eroding my joy…I reached a point where I found myself saying, no matter what it takes, I want to feel good…I want to feel free, independent, and soverign!

Shortly thereafter, he left.   I was initially devastated, feeling  lost and abandoned.  (I had abandoned myself).   But over time, I recognized that the change, as dramatic as it was, was part of the process of receiving what I wanted. Say you want better health, you are feeling sick and want so much to feel good.  Shortly thereafter you may get very ill:  having all kinds of symptoms.  More than likely your body is purging the emotional and physical toxins built up over the years…. remember, illness begins as emotional resistance.  But gradually this will lead to a healthier body.

We all came here to experience the physical realms…to learn how to manifest in physical form.  how to shape and mold physical reality.  We somehow forgot that the fun part was in the creation stage of our masterpieces.   Then enjoying what we created is fun, too.

Until next time go well my friend!
