How to Claim 5D Alchemy

5D delivers.  Once we move past the surprise of getting what we requested in full and complete ways, extraneous thought evaporates. There is nothing to do, no big agenda to follow. Effort goes out of receiving and even out of following-up.

Suddenly, without any warning, at any time or place, with no apparent cause, it can happen.                                                                                                                                                    Ken Wilbur

The Story

Unlike many people, I have not ever wanted to own a home. With nomadic blood, I move a lot, in both short and long-distance moves. I do feel that I have settled in place now, coming full circle to where I began. Buying a home, though, is not on my wish list.

Renting has become an option for many people and the market has changed. Prices have gone up and supply has gone down. I wanted to move this past Spring.

My wish list is precise, and long. I require no smoking, no external lights shining into interior rooms, no carpet, pet friendly, quiet, surrounding beauty and the right price.  Nothing matched my list this Spring, so I  decided to settle in place despite a super long commute with traffic that I allow to aggravate me.

Then, it happened.  As Ken Wilber says “Suddenly, without any warning, at any time or place, with no apparent cause, it can happen.  (From CWI No Boundary, page 433.)

My niece, a realtor, told me about a house for rent that meets my wish list.  And here, I have it, a place to call home. This new home allows me to shift toward fuller living. This new residence allows for greater social engagement and cultural enrichment because the commute is cut in half. I will be free from bombastic, artificial light invading inner space, noise pollution that yanks up my nervous system and a lack of green beauty that does nothing for the heart.

When the offer came, there was no losing center. I took the offer as a direct response to my request, and I took the receiving of it in stride. The plotting and planning of packing, moving, changing addresses seem like an ordinary day’s work; neither an ordeal, nor a cause for overenthusiastic anticipation.  The experience is simply something that is happening that is part of the mix of living in the field of alchemical magic, where wishes are granted and dreams are fulfilled.

Like many people, my past is rich with the joys of getting dream jobs or finding beautiful places to live or taking life-changing trips. There was always a roller coaster associated with these experiences; an up and a down.

Now, in 5D, it seems we take good fortune in stride.  There is nothing to lose center over. The pull of over exuberance or deflation has evaporated. We are in Yes Living now.

It is quite freeing to ask for something and receive it in full, on Spirit or the Universe’s timeline.  When we receive what we requested, the tendency is to keep asking for the next things our hearts desire. Love, and Life, and our own Soul, respond.

Ask – Presence with each changing Moment – Receive – Acknowledge — Ask

As we acclimate to the 5th and Higher Dimensions, we operate at a new cloud level, where the vista is wider, more flowing and connected. We do not have to concern ourselves with the tedium we were used to dealing with in 3D. We live with greater stride, confidence, and surety.

Please share in the comments a recent experience of yours in having a request met, full and complete.

 

 

 

 

The Entire Universe Conspires to Help

Dear Readers,

Both the Lunar Eclipse of the last Full Moon and the recent Solar Eclipse of this New Moon made direct contact with planetary placements in my birth chart.  It has taken me awhile to receive, absorb, assimilate, integrate and reconfigure. Now, I am back to writing this blog.

The eclipse energies brought an imperative for living in the moment.  There is no time to waste in being distracted. The focus is, as Matt Licata says, “What is most true now.”  Honouring what is most true in each moment represents a way of life in this New Time, and it takes practice. 

One awareness that has come up for me as most true is how intuition, or Conscious Awareness, arrives in split second awareness. What follows is a shared experience of “In a Flash Knowing.”

 Our intuition is connected to a vast Source and Resource of informing help.  There is an entire Universe conspiring to participate in even the most mundane aspects of our lives.

For decades, I have been dressing with the Moon.  The Moon changes zodiac signs every two and a half days, and each zodiac sign is associated with a colour. I chose to wear a colour of that day, and this is how I dress with the Moon. 

The colours of the zodiac, as I understand them, are listed below. As one Buddhist teacher told me long ago, “Everyone has a piece of the truth.”  If you search online for colours of the zodiac, you will see other associations.  The ones below represent what I have been working with and have come to know, over decades of use.

Aires – Red spectrum, including orange

Taurus – elegance and soft colours, like beige, muted blues

Gemini – gray, black/white, silver

Cancer – blues and browns

Leo – Red, pink, coral

Virgo—gray, black/white, silver

Libra – elegance, blues

Scorpio – black, red, purple, sexy

Sagittarius – skirts for women, turquoise

Capricorn – brown, black

Aquarius – anything goes

Pisces – white, light greens

We know colours transmit vibrational frequencies and wearing a colour associated with the sign the Moon is in helps me feel in alignment with the cosmos.  I love it when I encounter people who are wearing the colour of the Moon for that day and have no clue about the zodiac association.  I am in awe of people who pick up these frequencies, consciously or not and go with them. Kudos, deep respect, fearless!

In the Northern Hemisphere, we are approaching a change of season. The weather has not changed much, yet the mood and orientation have, and   summer clothes no longer carry the day. It is not cold enough for fall clothes. Finding midseason clothes to wear on any given day can be a challenge.

Preparing to dress one recent day when the Moon was in Scorpio, I looked through everything in my closet that would speak to Scorpio Moon, and nothing came up.  I let the choice of clothing go as I did other things in preparation for leaving for the day. Before I even approached my closet to look again, in a split second, the choice of clothes became clear: a black tee and an animal print skirt. This choice came out of the ethers, as I did not consciously notice this selection when I first looked for what to wear.

I was delighted with the choice; the clothes fit the Moon colour of the day, and my intuition directed me. I felt supported and connected with a responsive Universe.

I have written about this before: Living in the Moment requires trust. Worry, stress and fretting lock out trust. One “most true” dynamic is that we have helpers; we are not alone.

Our intuition is connected to a vast Source and Resource of informing help.  There is an entire Universe conspiring to participate in even the most mundane aspects of our lives, such as what to wear.

When we activate the living truth experience of Conscious Awareness (a new descriptor of Intuition) in small matters, we can release more completely into its embrace in the larger matters of life.

Please share in the comments section your experiences of “in a flash knowing,” when Conscious Awareness is your guiding companion.

 

 

Allowing Our Moon’s Magnetics to Pull You toward Stillness

In the early 1980s, I remember feeling bewildered that I had energy during one-half of each month and wanted to do nothing the other half of each month. This confusion was before I had consciousness around the permeable flow of the Moon’s rhythms in nature and within me.

Now that I understand the shifting rhythms, I work with them consciously. I have just had my Personal Dark Moon with its luscious pull to be quiet and still. It is a majical time that filters, warms and nurtures. Dark Moons rest my body, Soul, and Spirit.

Everyone has his or her unique patterning between the Personal and the Collective Lunar Cycles.  My Personal New Moon occurs about one week before the Collective New Moon. With this patterning, I have three days of magnetic pull to stillness and then an energetic uplift with my Personal New Moon. A few days after this, I go down and in again with the Collective Dark Moon, and then a fuller, energetic resurgence with the Collective New Moon. During the last ten days of the Collective Lunar Cycle, for me,  the needle on the energy spectrum trends toward low.

Flowing with this pattern allows my body rest and more rest, with the reflective peace that comes with stillness. These are abundantly rich times, and I resurface in both the Personal and Collective New Moons with new insights, and fresh starts.

The reflection that broke through the surface during this recent Personal Dark Moon relates to the heavy tension that gets stored in my body when I focus on the unexplainable chaos in our world now. In the United States, we have someone in power appearing to break all rules, yet keeps going. We have police shooting people to death, without charges brought against them and we have a former, revered comedian on trial for sexual assault, with legions of women in the background echoing similar assault, and the trial results in a hung jury.  In the world, we have audacious events of mass deaths by unfathomable acts of terror. Who can explain this topsy-turvy world?

For those of us working with the collective consciousness shift to higher dimensions, we understand that these bizarre outer circumstances represent the dismantling of the old order.  We get that. Living through it is another matter, as hardly anyone anticipated the dismantling would be so disgraceful, shocking, offensive, extreme.

The impact on our collective psyche is serious. People who are not aware of the quantum dimensional shift are having a tough time. People who are aware of this quantum shift are also having a tough time. Stress levels tip the balance scales with somber effect.

I have felt this stress as it shows up in clenched muscle tension that stifles life flow. This physical contraction hurts, and as a sovereign being, I must shift this. We all have anchors that bring us to center. One of my main anchors involves synchronizing physical energy levels with Moon flow.

Because I stopped, rested, and listened during my most recent Personal Dark Moon, I heard a plan that come through my inner caretaker.  During the Collective Dark Moon this week, I am taking a news cleanse.  I am not reading news online. I already do not watch the news on TV, and this week, I am giving up the hours I spend every day reading news online.  Our New Moon occurs Friday evening, June 23, 10:32 PM, EDT.  I will discern then whether I want to return to spending precious, potentially creative, moments reading news online.

Before the November election, I stopped listening to NPR news and have not returned to that practice. My system cannot take it.  My system has been on overload with all the online news I consumed,  and in this collective Dark Moon, I release that practice, too. I will have more time for creativity, more time for connecting with others, more time for tending to my inner life, as is optimal during a dark Moon phase.

It is rough out there. We must keep to kindness and supreme self-care. Do you feel the magnetic pull to stillness when it knocks on your psyche? Are you allowing it to help you stop, rest and listen to your inner wisdom? Please share in the comments section. If you would like assistance determining the pattern between your Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles, let me know.

 

Resolving the Pain of Self-Abandonment

Summerfair is a juried art show that occurs the first weekend in June on the banks of the Ohio River, here in Cincinnati. This is an art event I look forward to every year.  The Sun shines high, vibrant colours abound and crowds of people explore the art, curious and happy.

The day I attended Summerfair this year was a perfect weather day, and I was delighted to enjoy the experience with my sister. I find that contemplating the paintings, woodwork, metal work, jewelry, fiber arts, feeds my Soul. After my sister and I bought bold, fun summer wear from one of the vendors, we stopped to eat lunch on a bench in the shade, overlooking the muddy brown Ohio River. The essence of this River has imprinted my Soul since childhood.

After lunch, I checked my phone and found an email message confirming an apartment viewing appointment at 3:30 PM that day. And here is where I lost it. Rather than stop, tune in and discern a choice between seeing that apartment or enjoying the rest of the fair, I lost presence and did not even consider that there was a choice. Sheepishly, I went to look at the apartment.

I only recognized that there was a choice when we arrived at the apartment parking lot and saw how dismal the place was. I did not even go in to view the apartment.

The refrain “Wouda, coulda, shoulda,” played in my mind. The rental price was a giveaway, had I consciously assessed the offering. The price was far enough off to indicate that it was a no, even before I said yes to the appointment. If I had the presence of mind to realize a choice was at stake, I could have declined the appointment and stayed at the fair. Instead, I flowed listlessly, like a log on the River, wasting time and effort. In consequence, I suffered the loss of feeling incomplete with this year’s Summerfair.

Michele Mayama taught a technique where you check in with your’s Soul’s wisdom by asking a question and then feeling through the soles of the feet if there is life related to what is asked, or not. I have used these technique for years and find it to be reliable. A yes answer had a response of upward surging, a no answer is flat and when our Soul or Body  wants no part of what is being asked about, there is a downward pull, like a repulsed response: a definite no.  Had I even stopped to ask if there was life for me in going to view the apartment, the response, I am sure, would have been no.

Instead, I was left with a deflated feeling of loss, discomfort and dissonance. I was upset because I lost presence and did not discern choice about something that held value for me.

I had obsessive thoughts about what I missed by leaving the fair early.  It was a challenge to let that go.  Four times I asked, through my feet, if there was life for me in going back to the Fair on Sunday, to capture what I missed seeing on Saturday. Every time I received a flat-out NO.

A few days later, a friend shared a Jeff Brown quote and a phrase from that quote resonated like cathedral bells: “The more embedded our methods of self-distraction, the more agitating the truth-aches calling us back to authenticity.” Truth-ache, this was the pain of it; I abandoned myself and had acute truth-ache because of it.

Moving through the loss associated with missing a sizable portion of this year’s fair brought flashes of what it might be like on the deathbed. I can imagine one might say, think or feel, “Oh, no I am not ready to leave, I did not get to see everything or have all the experiences I wanted to have.”

Interestingly, on my Facebook feed that day, someone posted a quote from Rumi: “At the moment of our death we wake up laughing.” This quote lit me up!

I have heard that the Dalia Lama works on his own death a little every day. I am not sure what he does, however, I imagine preparing for ease at death might involve practice with letting go, feeling loss, more letting go and opening to the infinite, unconditioned possibilities of Presence with each moment.

Every truth-ache has a learning where we go beyond the pain and sense the underlying need. For me, in this Summerfair experience, the identified needs are to not abandon myself, to stay present, and to feed my Soul more art.

I am returning to Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way’s practice of  weekly cultural dates with myself. I am checking local listings for art fairs and cultural events. I am slow stopping to consider that each moment holds choice. When I die, I want to be full up and ready, not a moment of this precious life wasted through abandoning Presence, and choice.

Raising Frequencies to Allow for Multidimensional Creating

When I was growing up, my mother and maternal grandmother used to say, “The Lord will provide.”  In the consciousness shift to 5D and beyond, we seem to transcend the concept of a “Lord” to that of an active, co-creating Universe, free of hierarchy, where no one lords over us, for good or not so good.

Mass movements dismantle hierarchy. The Civil Rights Movement in the 60’s started the dissolve of the hierarchy of race, and the Flower Power of the same era started the dissolve of the hierarchy of corporate capitalism. These collective awakenings brought direct experience of personal sovereignty and human equality. We recognized freedoms and our interrelatedness. The 1970s and 80s brought revitalized interest in Native American Spirituality, reminding us all creatures are our relations, animal, plant, mountain, ocean, sky, human; All My Relations.

Fast forward to the Information Age when our entire planet is connected wirelessly and folks at far distances communicate instantaneously. Hierarchy of place, dismantled.

Other mass movements also reflect the dissolution of hierarchy. People take power back from doctors as they research their options, tune into themselves, and decide personal health care choices based on their own sovereignty. As I wrote in last week’s post, no one knows better than us what is the best for us.

While it still seems to be a man’s world, progress is made in gender equality. Men are in the delivery room now, in contrast to their absent role in the birthing process decades ago. That some men change diapers, feed babies and are active parents, is a great equalizer in gender hierarchy. Gender fluidity is another equalizer.

We also see the dissolution of hierarchy between humans and animals. People go out of their way, even risking their lives, to save animals. There is mass outrage when remnants of trophy consciousness are reported.  Animals perform miraculous interventions that save human lives.

Like stepping stones, these mass events that diminish hierarchy and demonstrate equality lead us to direct experience of worthiness, and Divinity.

The embodiment of sovereign power leads us to awareness that we co-create our own reality. We are no longer helpless victims, at the mercy of a hierarchical figure lording over us. We are it.  We are actively linked to the co-creative, materializing forces that craft our lives.

Co-creation does not force mind over matter. The more conscious we are, the more fluid and responsive we are with the co-creative forces, the more our lives reflect materialized desires.

And this is my place of struggle now, in raising frequencies to allow for this level of multidimensional creating. It is one thing to let go of hierarchy; it is another thing to be flapping in the wind without a Mother.

We do not create in a vacuum.  We speak our truth to ourselves consciously; the truth of what we long for and want. In expressing to ourselves, we also express to the Universe. We monitor negative self-talk and choose words with care, as we know what we say manifests.

I am aware of having to stretch up and out to this new consciousness that is grounded in direct experience of being loved by an animate Universe who cares, listens and responds to requests.

My challenge on this path is releasing the habituated patterning of being a Motherless Child. Yes, I had a mother in this life, and like many, my mother’s formative life experiences led to the motherless child experience.

My awareness now is of letting go of the Lone Wolf persona and letting in Love. A spiritual teacher once said to me, “You need to have an experience of a Mother that you can trust.” She led me to the Earth Mother, and now, I lead myself to the Living, Loving Cosmos Mother.

A Mothered Child no longer hides what she wants, longs for, knows as Truth. An adult mothered child is self-responsible within a Universe that hears, responds and Loves back.  Our Cosmic Mother is multidimensional with access to the timeless realm of All Possibility. Hierarchy is gone; inclusion is here. No one, no part left out. We wake to our Power, our Sovereignty and our living relationship with a co-creating Field.

Our rational minds cannot understand our co-creating Field; our Souls know. When we surrender the lead of our mind to the lead of our Soul and when we combine our Soul Consciousness with the Consciousness of the Universe, how can we not create what is good and holy and remarkably ours to do and be and have?

When we surrender the false concept of hierarchy and claim stand-up alliance with a responsive, creating Universe, how can we not create and Be what it is ours to create and Be?

A mothered child knows that she is loved. She has the freedom to be. We are all Mothered by this Divine Mother, our Earth and the SupraMother beyond Her, the Cosmos. I suspect it takes a while to absorb this Love, to repattern the Motherless Child experiences with Mothered Child experiences.

This is the part we deal with now, in this Frequency Upgrade; this direct experience of being Love and Loved within a Loving Universe. 

(Current political scenes reflect the death throes of hierarchy. It is a mess out there. However, what we feed with our attention, grows. If we choose to be distracted by the external chaos to the determent of our own sovereignty, that is a choice. 

One’s own Heart and Soul is where accountability rests. If you are called from within to be an active part of the Resistance, may you find your way to Yes.  If your role is to listen to the deepest beat of the Earth/Cosmos through silence and bearing witness, may you find your way to that, too. Whatever your role in this current chaos, may you find your way and not abandon yourself in the process.)

Opening to Receive: 5 Tips to Get to Yes

When someone compliments you,  do you accept, wide open, with no questioning? Or, do pre-conditioned responses of resistance come into play? Are you even keel with giving and receiving, or are you always  giving?  Life within a  responsive Universe requires that we live in dynamic equilibrium with both  giving and receiving.

In last week’s post, I wrote how the split between body and mind is lessening and use of intuition is increasing. For these great changes to happen though, we must be open to receive. Issues of false pride and subscribing to hierarchy are no longer functional. In hierarchy’s place is awareness of our own supreme sovereignty. That message, delivered Ages ago, the Kingdom of Heaven is Within” reflects present reality.

As I wrote last week, we are moving toward the direct experience of Oneness. Going through life blocking the reality that we are part of, that we belong, results in tremendous waste and keeps us from receiving what is ours to receive.

If receiving remains a challenge, here are five suggestions to consider for opening to the wild, raw, living current of Life that says Yes.

  1. Consider that being closed to receiving is an adaptive response. Notice how a baby responds to a face reflecting unconditional love: there is joy, delight, openness, receptivity! Practice receiving at that infant pleasure level next time someone praises you.

 

  1. Allowing unconditional love involves trust. If you feel there is no one whom you can trust, go to nature. Beam in the spectacle of night sky, or a vibrant-with-life tree, or a serenading bird or the breathtaking colours of sunrise and sunset. Allow yourself to receive natural beauty as mirror reflection of you.

 

  1. Say Yes when your Soul nudges you to say Yes. You will know when a No is appropriate, however, consciously stretch to Yes when No feels false or habitual. This Amazon page lists books related to saying yes.

 

  1. Using a mirror, look yourself in the eye and applaud yourself!  This practice, from Spring Forest Qigong,  opens the heart meridian. Do try this and note how it feels!

 

  1. Consider that you may be adept at opening to receive and that the challenge is Opening to Be Received.

 

During eons of life in 3rd Dimension, many of us had to hide. Intuitives, healers, wise women and men, we could not openly show who we are.  We can be who we are now and opening to be received might represent a new chapter in living the truth that we are part of and do belong. Your gifts, talents, wisdom are a crucial part of our collective unfolding into 5D.

If opening to be received is part of your challenge, start small and stay consistent with sharing who you are and what is yours to give. Trust that the opening to fulfillment is yours and receive it. Pay attention to how your sensate body guides and directs you. Open to receive that inner wisdom, and you will find your way to opening to be received.

Blessing wishes for all giving and receiving

 

Hang on to Patience: The Coming Mercury Retrograde Period Feels Like a Doozy!

 

Another Mercury Retrograde period approaches and the one coming feels like a doozy.  As I have written before, Mercury Retrograde occurs three times a year with an approximate three week retrograde period, and a shadow and post retrograde period of varying lengths.  The dates for our next Mercury Retrograde period are:

Shadow period starts March 26, ends April 8

Retrograde period starts April 9, ends May 3

Post Retrograde period stars May 4, ends May 21

In astrology, Mercury governs communication and all things mechanical and technical.  In our current world, that is a lot of territory!

In both direct and reported experiences, these recent glitches suggest that the Mercury retrograde period has already started:

Google shared calendar app that was working, stops working

An institution’s internet connection is sporadic for an entire day, unable to sustain service for longer than a few minutes at a time. Little to no online work can be done.

A doctor’s office confirms an appointment that was not ever made for a condition not experienced.  Wrong patient? Miscommunication of test results? 

These experiences are typical of what happens during Mercury retrograde periods. The snafus cause frustrations with accompanying effects, like increased stress, high blood pressure, sugar cravings, insomnia, anger and depression.

Knowledge is power. When we know that a pattern of celestial play in the sky reflects experiences here on Earth, it helps to take earthly frustrations and stalemates in stride.

If frustrations associated with this Mercury Retrograde period come your way, here are suggestions for coping:

Accept your present moment

Breathe.  Putting right hand in the middle of the chest and left hand two fingers below navel, with pressure as light as a feather, helps calm and center rather quickly.

Once calm, immerse yourself in the experience of No Time.  Concurrent with that is the deep, inner knowing that All is Well.

From this place of direct experience of peace within presence, identify your options and summon your resources.

Release blame, shame, and frustration. Things happen, we are not working alone in this life, we have unseen helpers, always. As human beings, we have only part of the story.  Trust, flow, let go, receive the silver lining when it arrives. 

Quicksilver is liquid Mercury. The silver lining comes when we meet frustrating experiences with grace, patience and humor. Higher vibrational consciousness comes through appreciation of your resourcefulness, willingness to let go of absolutes, and trusting Life.

We might have to wait for it, however, Mercury retrograde does deliver!

 

The Eclipses Are Coming

 

For the many decades that I worked as a professional astrologer, I knew eclipses to be potent portal openings for change and fulfillment. They seem to take us higher. Lunar and Solar eclipses occur at least twice a year and their effects last six months, until the next set of eclipses occur.

In a Lunar Eclipse, Earth passes between Sun and Moon, and Earth’s shadow blocks Moon Light. In a Solar Eclipse, the Moon travels between the Earth and Sun, and the Moon’s shadow blocks the Sun’s Light.

Taking a fresh look at the meaning of eclipses, a recent meditation revealed eclipses as a fusion of Sun, Moon and Earth. In both a Solar and a Lunar eclipse, there is a trinity alignment of exquisitely timed perfection. This exquisite alignment is like an impregnation of Sun/Moon/Earth breathing together.

That this happens at least four times a year and with predictive regularity, and has been happening for thousands of years, is astounding to rational mind. This ritual patterning speaks of great portals of becoming for human beings.

I encourage you to take a  journey with your Self, your Soul, the Sun, Earth and Moon and ask in your own words, what is the meaning of eclipses, for you.  

This week’s Lunar Eclipse occurs on Friday, February 10, at 7:34 PM Eastern time on the axis of Leo Moon and Aquarius Sun. The Solar Eclipse occurs on Sunday, February 26 at 9:59 AM, with a Pisces Sun, Pisces Moon.

The celestial region where these eclipses occur speaks of the union of a stellar human taking center stage in her life, and, from there, finding expressive harmony as a humanitarian being. From this fusion of experience comes the awakening of the direct, visceral Knowing of Oneness.

Something popped up in the collective experience recently and it speaks to a belly-laugh interpretation of the celestial story of the February 2017 eclipses: individuals, in this case, countries, take center stage while coming together as a cohesive, collective whole. Creatives, writers, performers, producers, of late-night talk shows of countries from around the world, have joined together in creating and sharing parodies of their respective countries’ response to the recent United States inauguration speech of “America First.” 

From a Fifth-Dimension perspective, we have long ago crossed the Field into Global Consciousness, so one country being first is of a by-gone era; this positioning is no longer sustainable. We are on this Earth, together, as One. The global late night talk show parodies can be seen on this page.  Over the next six months, as the energies of the February eclipses radiate out, and more countries of our Earth Family activate their flag and present their own parody, it will be interesting to see a world united in resistance, through the strength expression of soft humour.

Resistance united as Global People Coming Together, is one expression of the 2017 Eclipse series.  There will be other collective and personal expressions unfolding within this 2017 eclipse series, as well. Make wishes, listen closely to the Heart, ride the wave of finding your center stage and claiming it, then sharing yourself in the Collective Field. This sharing can be as big or as quiet as your Soul directs, specifically for you. It is of value though, to listen, and ask for assist of your Soul if you feel called to go outside your comfort zone. From the place of claiming your stage, then expressing yourself, comes the direct, visceral, the know it in your blood and bones experience that We are One.

This is one facet of what is on offer in the February 2017 eclipse season. Please share your experiences in the comments section, or email me in the months ahead as eclipse energies of this sacred trinity, Sun/Moon/Earth play out their dance of fusion, opening us to higher frequencies of Love and Oneness.

What do you do when your only viable recourse is to stop thinking?

winter-20248-winter

The other day I was forced out of thinking. I have written before about being too tired to think, however, on this recent day, external pressures mounted and my only viable recourse was to stop thinking.

Cessation of thought sinks us into present moment. As I prepared to embrace the day, I was aware of no thought and of centering through the Central Channel, that core column within that pulls up from the Earth, through the center of the body, out through the crown and into the infinite sky.  I was aware of being surrounded by a protective energy field, as if I was inside a shield of protection, a Merkabah.

I was acutely aware of being companioned by Present Moment on my right and Intuition on my left, sustained through my core and surrounded by the 10 directions, above, below, all around and within. I was ready, willing and free to breathe the unknown.

meditation-1384758_1280-merkerba-like

We have repeatedly heard the words, “We are Not Alone, We are One, We are Part of, We Belong.” Living this knowing is the New Now and thought restricts direct experience of this harmonic wholeness. Thought takes us out of present moment and into past or future. Past and future do not pulsate with Life, Now does.

In 5th Dimension consciousness, we weave through life as aware, resourced beings with spontaneous access to information. We meet each fresh moment and know what to do by breathing in the Now.

We are well-served to support ourselves in the New Now with practices of quiet, silence, meditation, reflection, journaling and creating. The action of creating builds the experience of confidence in not knowing. How many times have you created something and were surprised and astonished at what came into form? We’ve got this!

We are also well served by proper nutrition, adequate sleep, time in Nature, declining to overwork, and intimate and community relationships with humans and animals whom we love and trust.

We are especially well-served by movement, exercise or walks in nature and, particularly, ancient movement practices that have thousands of years’ experience working with energy flow – practices like qi gong, tai chi, yoga, sacred dance.

We have the chance, now, to replace thinking through and processing every encounter, every day, every obstacle, with a repertoire of self-care options that source us intuitively. These self-care options are called practices, because as we do them every day, we gain depth experience in inner wisdom. Inner wisdom is our main go-to in this time of not-knowing. Inner wisdom is the solid gold of self-love.

These practices of supreme self-care – movement, creativity, nature, nutrition, sleep, intimacy and community – build resilience that radiates through us and opens access to multidimensional consciousness. Life opens to us as we open to Life. This is 5D living, Now.

For me, after letting go of thought, the sensate awareness was Intuition on the left, Core centered, Present Moment on the right.  What is your experience? Please share in the comments section, below.

Non Linear Living, Now!

brush-1317902_1280-colourful-wave-particle

The irony brings on a belly laugh.

One year ago, I wrote a blog post about no longer using reminder lists. I had been in the process of not making lists for three years  by the time I wrote that post. Now, one year later, a stubborn mindset wants to revisit the issue. Habits die hard and the mind continues to think it knows best.

In this season of shift, multiple streams call for attention. The imperative to choose is forceful and the mind gets scared that it cannot keep up, or choose well. Within this heart pounding experience, I considered returning to making lists.

Ah, the pain of it.  Feeling frantic and not resourceful, the mind tries to revert to old ways. Whether to make a list or not might read trivial and inconsequential; however, my direct experience of this choice point is that it is crucial.

Making a list harms me because it takes me out of the wave particle flow of life and back into linear confinement of self within time and space. It is challenging to be in the new 5D, multidimensional experience. We have been living in the 3rd Dimensional Consciousness for thousands of years and the old ways of how we got by are deeply ingrained in thoughts, experiences and programmed responses.

This new way is open and there are no teachers or guides or safety nets other than our own deep, true inner knowing.  3D consciousness might not know what is going on, however, our multidimensional consciousness, informed through sensate experiences within a living, informing Field, does know and offers guidance and direction out of fear and into Light.

I came very close to writing a list before my consciousness floated in with awareness that making a list is a linear way and, right now, that does not represent optimal functioning in this new multidimensional consciousness.

In this new way, all is possible, in any moment. Making a list inhibits all possibility, because we limit our focus to the way our minds outlined. I am talking about all lists, from grocery lists to work to-do lists to life goal lists.

Yes, we still identify and name what we want, however, we do not limit it. “This or something better” is a helpful phrase to add on to anything we have identified that we want.  That phrase keeps it open to all possibility and honours the mechanics of us working with a knowing, loving Living Field of co-creation.

What is the worst that can happen if you forget to buy something from the grocery store because you did not use a list?  Maybe another trip back to the store at another time and who knows the connection that can happen when you make that second trip?

People with symptoms of memory loss do need to employ lists. We use all that we can to help ourselves.  Yet, others, who rely on lists, out of habit in contrast to need, might be surprised by the freedom that comes from not using lists.

To live free of lists requires trust in one’s self. It requires trust in a living Universe, or Spirit, or Field, whatever the name. It requires trust in one’s self within this living Field.

And that is the difference, in this new time we are aware that we are connected, vitally to our own Knowing, to our informing Cosmos, and to the morphic Field of living intelligence and all that is animate – humans, animals, plants, flowers, trees, crystals, rocks, stones, stars, rainbows, clouds, waters, fire, earth, winds.

All that has life has intelligence and communicates through this pulsing living Field in which we anchor ourselves.  The upright, steadfast anchoring of past has become a swirling, open, fluid, colourful anchoring filled with surprise, support and fulfillment.

Living a linear life will not get us the fulfillment our hearts and souls want. The past is gone. We are free-floating within all possibility now and making a list restricts the full capacity of listening, feeling, choosing within each fresh moment.
