The Joy Factor

Today as I was opening my mailbox at the apartment complex mail center, I noticed that the mailman looked preoccupied, stressed.  He was not in a good mood.   He seemed overworked.  I have seen him that way many times.

I walked away from the mailboxes wanting him to think I too was uncomfortable in some way.  I didn’t want to appear too happy. Continue reading “The Joy Factor”

Salvation Anyone?

Most of the world’s religions believe that god is separate from man and believe in good and evil, and in suffering.  Some refer to it as Karma.  Most teach the importance of striving for spiritual ‘purity,’ of releasing all ‘sensual’ desires, and of transcending their human-ness.

Some religions subscribe to the belief that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save us from our ‘sins.’ That we are born sinners, and only if we embrace Jesus as our messiah will we be able to have eternal life, and go to heaven when we leave this mortal coil. That we must worship an external god, and follow a lot of dogma to prove worthiness, or the consequences could be dire. Continue reading “Salvation Anyone?”

Letting Go Of Victimhood

Art by Maria Chambers

Every one of us going through the ascension process has felt like a victim at many points in our lives, and on some level still carry the victim energy to one degree or another.  Whether it’s feeling the victim of a health issue, heredity, a relationship, an emotion, of the aging process, of the government, or of life in general.

Are You The Master Or The Student?


A while back – actually lifetimes ago, you took a vow to yourself that you would make this the lifetime for your enlightenment.  You didn’t quite know what you were getting yourself into.  But you did know that the old way of experiencing life, without your soul present, was incredibly boring.  Even with drama to make you feel alive, it wasn’t cutting it.

To come here and to forget who you are, what bravery!  To stumble around trying to be just another human.  To go through very difficult childhoods, where you hid your Christ Consciousness because it didn’t feel safe to express it.  So you gradually lost the connection to your first love – your very soul!  To try so hard to fit in, but you knew you were different from the other children.

To have the confidence before you incarnated to know that you would remember who you are.  Very few angels had the guts to do that.

To put our minds and emotions and bodies through hell, and in the process think there is something wrong with us.  Things seemingly disintegrating, our health, finances, relationships, and our minds.  Feeling so alone, no one in our immediate family or community to talk to because they are not going through or have gone through this awakening.  Mostly they are at the very beginning stages of this transformational process.

But here you are.  You said you would do whatever it takes to remember who you are beyond your human personality and body.  And now, as you are awakening, you realize that things are coming up to be transformed, things seem to be leaving your life, but you really lose nothing.  You still have your mind, although you no longer rely on it for your awakening or for your manifestations.  You still have your body, and you realize that the seeming illness and fatigue are temporary because it is releasing the cells that can’t embody spirit, and is in the process of creating new cells.  The physical body is the last to catch up so you realize you need a little more trust and patience.  You realize that as you begin to love yourself more, your soul is more able to come in closer.  You recognize that this brings up resistance from your mind and that resistance can show up as more illness or emotional turmoil.

You begin to accept those parts of you that haven’t felt loved and you begin to embrace them with unconditional love.  You realize that things may seem to get worse because there is a process taking place, so you don’t allow your mind to engage you in more fear.

You begin to pay less and less attention to those fears and you choose to feel good.  You understand that the master chooses how they want to feel, and you understand that manifesting your dreams comes from feeling joy, not fear or lack.  But you also realize that the master allows all feelings.  But he doesn’t allow the feelings he doesn’t enjoy to control him.


There is no judgement in that question.  But the answer will determine how you experience your awakening from this point forward.  And that is not to say that you won’t flip back and forth at least until you build your trust.  Jesus had days that he got lost in the emotions and energies of those around him.  And he got distracted by his own doubts, at least until he accepted himself and loved himself just as he was.

If you decide you have had enough of asking how do I become enlightened, why are these things happening to me, and you begin asking questions like, dear soul, what would you like to do today, then you are the Master.  When you decide you are not a victim of any emotion, or any person, any family DNA, any disease, or any financial institution, then you are the master.  If you can let go of needing to take care of anyone emotionally, of having to save the world, then you are the master.  If you realize that you do not need to process or analyze things, try to figure things out, then you are the master.

If you are still searching, then you are the student.  If you are still trying and struggling then you are still the student.  If you believe you need to suffer or compromise for anything, you are not yet the master.  If you believe it must be complicated, you are still the student.  If you believe you must be the master in every moment, you are wrong!  But the master realizes that they have the choice in any moment about how they want to feel.  You are here to awaken yourself, and you have so many beautiful energies right here to serve you.  The master says clearly and with feeling, “I am healthy.”  Then she doesn’t think about it and knows it will manifest.  The same with finances.  The master states with confidence and self-worth, “I am wealthy!” And doesn’t try to figure it out from her mind.  The master knows that passion for life, living from her soul, is what brings her dreams into form.  He has left the inner battle behind and is now into feeling joy and sensuality.

The master knows that true freedom is the freedom to choose how she wants to feel.  That a joyful life is a life lived from the inside out.

The master knows that she is still living here in a very dense environment.  And even though she chooses to feel joy, she also knows that life here still has its challenges. But she also knows that in any moment she gets to choose how she wants to feel, and is no longer in response to life but lets life serve her.  She knows that life wants to serve her and that everything is possible.
