The Spaciousness of No Judgement

Pattern recognition comes in little slips of awareness when light shines upon shadow, revealing habituated responses that no longer serve us. With so much Light filtering into Life now, pattern recognition presents as an ongoing opportunity.

For me, pattern recognition awareness has been about judgement. In the Western world, we are indoctrinated, through commercials and advertising, especially, to look for and choose perfection.  Life is not like that; we are unique, beautiful individuals in our own right, however, often far from the ideal of beauty and perfection.

I have been aware of how opinions pop into my consciousness as I encounter other people, strangers, especially. This is not my, or anyone else’s, True Nature. We have been conditioned and programmed to be competitive and comparing, judging others over things that are none of our business and do not matter. For me, and maybe for you, this habituated response of judgment no longer works.

What is it like to encounter strangers without having an opinion or a judgement pop into consciousness?  What is it like to simply encounter others and have a wide open, not preconceived, not conditioned response? This is the current, life- changing assignment that I have chosen to accept.

In the few times I have been free from conditioned response, the experience is spacious and liberating.  My direct experience is not blocked by a limiting opinion; the unconditioned response does not take precious seconds from my life by having a judgement about what someone is wearing or how their hips look. Instead, my consciousness is free of distraction and clutter, open to downloading my own possibilities.

From focused work on accessing this shift to 5D, it is clear to me that living in the present moment is key. When my automatic response to seeing another human being is an opinion or judgement, I am not in the moment. I am bringing baggage from some programmed pre-conditioning that is neither true to me nor to Life.

Having such conditioned responses is a monumental waste of time and resources. I want the freedom that is reflected in a Montana sky or the view of a Wyoming ranch or a gaze across the Great Lake Superior.  I want open, unrestricted, unfettered, unbounded consciousness.

To have this unconditioned consciousness when encountering others means that I keep my mind free, open and clear.  It means when an opinion pops into consciousness, I give it no air time. I breathe and bring my consciousness back to empty where I can catch messages of inspiration, information and guidance for my own life.

Changing this conditioned patterning is going to take deep and consistent practice. It is going to take constant reminders; it is going to take wiping the slate clean of gossip, of magazine and online ads that suggest perfection, of commercials that lie.

I say yes to this change because having opinions and conditioned responses strangle me and I cannot take it anymore.  There is another way. The 5th, and higher, Dimensions invite this kind of freedom shift. This Now provides the Light to see outdated patterns and our Souls reach for the Light. We always have free will regarding personal choices. Once we hear the clarion bell, “Look at this!” how do we choose, yes, or no?

My choice is yes.  With gratitude for seeing the pervasive pattern of judging, I say yes to a free, truer way to live. How about you? What pattern recognition comes to light for you now, to re-pattern for a happier, healthier, freer you? If a pattern does not automatically come to mind, keep asking! Now is prime time for shifting outdated patterns.

3rd in a Series of Letting Go

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Down the rabbit hole and the only substance involved was raw, unfiltered, multidimensional Life.

For the past two weeks these blog posts have been about Letting Go and that theme continued as a lived experience for me this past week.  Our collective move from life in 3D to life in 5D is uncharted territory. Nothing is the same as it was, we are not quite sure how we got here and we have no clue as to what is next. There are moments that are super challenging and cause us to have to let go of rational understanding. Our hearts are open, and our eyes, yet the shifts are rapid and complete; at times it feels like we are white water rafting in the course of daily life. Whew!

The Move

In response to my personal alignment with this shift to 5D, I have made major life changes. I left employment that I enjoyed, yet was done with, and left family and friends to relocate to be near a big, beautiful, massive body of water in daily life. This move was an affirmative response to a call from Nature to live near Lake Superior, and in a place where I might find more community than I had previously known. I, like so many others, have been aching for community.

I have found community and the sustaining beauty of nature, however, after one year, I do not feel settled.  At times I feel like a ping pong ball in my own life. Here, there, where? This was not how it was “supposed” to be.  I made the move in good faith and with informed choice, yet the settling in experience, at times, feels severe.

This week, my letting go experience was in releasing to full and total surrender. As children in play, we used to call this “crying uncle.” In adult life, it is unconditioned surrender. Feeling through each Now is all that I can do. Multidimensional consciousness is just that; we are living with layers of consciousness like the layers of bands within old trees and layers of sediment from the surface of the Earth to its core. We have to deal with multiple levels simultaneously. This can feel confusing and overwhelming, beyond the capacities of our regular coping. We need a bigger field of coping and surrender, with its release of conditioned responses, helps us find our way within this larger, untraveled territory.

I used to work as a professional astrologer and pieces of that work continue through my current work with Natural Time and Intuition and Time as a Felt Experience, with Body as Timer.  I let go of working more fully with astrology because it seems to me that we are, collectively, working with a much bigger canvas now than our solar system. It seems to me that we are working with systems way beyond what is known. By systems, I mean galactic and supergalactic spirals of cosmic community. We have been invited to this grand new arena, yet we do not know the territory. We learn as we go.

As a way of dealing with multidimensional living, I do, occasionally, look at my own chart and have awareness of major transits as they occur in real time.  One of the major transits that I have going on now, personally, has traditionally been associated with depression. It is a reformative energy on the emotional life, this I know. This transit has had one layer of the multilayer effect of multidimensional life now and that contributing effect takes me to rock bottom where the only viable option is to walk in the forest of surrender.

Angst, yes, momentarily, however, also a gift. This most recent experience of surrender has helped me release me from willfulness, force and effort. Ah, yes. If only. In my current state, I have had to let go of thinking that I have answers for major life choices, like living here, there, where? In my current state of accepted surrender, my recourse is to keep moving through each moment with the inner inquiry of “What’s next.” Where is the energy for me in this moment? What calls my attention for focus? Where do I feel alignment? Each choice has to be consciously considered and long-term planning is not operational.

Choice-making

In everyone’s life there are myriad choices regarding what can bring happiness, what can bring joy, what can bring money, what can bring fulfillment, what can bring connection. In my personal life, with this collective, unprecedented shift of dimensional consciousness, I pay attention to what has my awareness, I offer daily prayer for dissolution of the veil between conscious and unconscious and I ask and listen regarding what has life for me and what does not have life for me.

I ask for help, from my Soul, from the New Field, from Life, to breathe through the rocks and hard places, breath through the angst, breath through the FEAR, breath through not knowing. With all that breathing, I notice that I am still standing. It is not easy, yet there are moments of relief, release, wonder and informed direction.

It helps to pay attention to the things that matter to me.  For instance, there was a communal invitation this week was to participate in a labyrinth walk, part of World Labyrinth Day. I have walked labyrinths before and while this spiritual practice has not been a personal path for me, I did want to participate in this local event.

Art work by Aureal Williams

Our group was blessed by a facilitator who knows labyrinth walking. He suggested that we start our walk with an intentional prayer and work with the 3 Rs, Release as we go in; Receive as we are at the Center; Return (to wholeness) on the walk out. Being in active surrender mode now, the release part was comforting. In the center of the labyrinth that we walked, there is a bench. As I reached the center, I sat on the bench, deeply kissed by the sun, and I asked to receive. Information came pouring through the sunrays and up through the encircled Earth and through the silent care of community. It was magnificent.  Answers did come, pieces of the big puzzle of a personal life, sustaining filaments threading to next moments.

Our lives are unfolding in sometimes angst-filled ways, not unlike earlier times in everyone’s life. Yet now, the path is uncharted and long term planning seems defunct. We are doing this new life piece by piece, choice by choice. It hurts if we try to get too far ahead of ourselves because then we are taken away from the moment, where the information is. I was driven to the ground of surrender and I did surrender. It seems that this is the beginning of a new world, not the end. With each surrender, and based on my own inner sensate volition, my own, sharply honed inner truth discerning of “Yes, this does have life for me or no, thank you, I pass,” I align with this greater canvas of uncharted territory, this bigger picture that is dancing us into our new life.

Like so many others, I thought this process would be over by now, that we would have reached the land of Nirvana and life would be easy, breezy and effortless. I have been on this path since the Harmonic Convergence of August, 1987 and the “payoff” always seems just around the corner. As I experienced in the labyrinth walk, the corners keep turning.

How about you and your life challenges now? Is surrender part of the currency of your life, too? Do share your surrender story in the comments below.

Superior Self-Care

The 5th Dimension does not support a linear experience of time. This means that plotting and planning, one step in front of the other, one piece of the puzzle in alignment with the next, are not viable options right now. The 5D experience is neither rational, nor logical, yet things come together in amazing and synchronous ways. With 5D, we consciously choose, based on authentic needs and desires specific to each moment. This means that we need to get out of our head and feel our way through life. Does this work for me now? What do I need and want now? What is my choice now? Questions like these help us discern our way within the holographic experience of 5D living.

One experience that cannot be delayed in life in 5D is superior self-care. For optimal functioning, best results, we have to take full and authentic care of ourselves. This means that we pay attention to what we are feeling, needing and wanting. Patterns of low self-esteem and feelings of undeserving get in the way of superior self-care. There is no room in 5D living for low self-esteem or feelings of not being good enough.

Low self-esteem, feelings of being unworthy are imprints of past conditioning and they are not based on the truth of us; rather they are based on adaptations that we had to make in 3D living. 5D supports another experience of living that knows Self as worthy, good enough and deserving of superior self-care.

A practice of superior self-care is vital to functioning in 5D.Thinking about the future clogs present fulfillment and thinking about the past blocks present momentum. We know this, yet how do we live present moment awareness when we have to function in jobs and families and social commitments that still seem to be operating in the duality, the good/bad consciousness of 3D?

Conscious breathing within each moment is one of the best ways to stay in the moment. Awareness of our sensate experience within each moment also supports presence. What am I feeling, what are the energies around me now, are they supportive and resonant or not? How do your keep your energy full and fluid enough to keep that question current?

Our bodies, according to many people who write about the 5th Dimension, are becoming more light filled and less dense. Our dreams are even changing. What we eat, how we sleep, how we tend to legitimate emotional needs of quiet and silence, of connection with others who are resonant with our energies, how we stay sparked and alive with interest and curiosity, how we move our bodies, how we engage with nature are all components of superior self-care and the challenge is to meet all of these needs thoroughly and with love.

Ignoring hunger, ignoring the discomfort of a craving, ignoring constant audio stimulation that blocks sweet silence, resisting periods of doing nothing by staying busy, overworking, over- or under-engaging in social connection, inertia of body movement are all detriments to superior self-care. This is not about being perfect; it is about being authentic and listening to your heart, soul and body through each moment, each day.

Sometimes, one is required to stay engaged with others when a little alone time or silence is what one needs, such as in the case of parenting. Or being on deadline with an important work project. Or having to overwork to pay the rent. The demand to meet these commitments is real. Conscious breathing helps. So does learning relaxation techniques and using them, in the moment. Looking out the window at the sky can help. Smiling helps. Self-talk can help; saying something like, “I have to do this now and I do this with as much grace and ease as I can muster and I know that everything changes. One day, my circumstances will be different.”

I have heard it said that the 6th Dimension is the realm of majic. If we can be present with our selves in 5D living, through conscious presence of how we are feeling in each moment, through feelings of worthiness and positive self-regard that automatically result in superior self-care, through an experience of Body as Timer, time as fluid and internal rather than mechanical and external, through the release of duality and hierarchy, we open to multidimensional living. We engage with the living Field of energy that surrounds us, inside and out, and we create majic, without concern of past or future. We release the pressure valve and sense and feel into the moment. From there we can be informed of better, truer choices that help us find our way, with humour and joy, through the demand commitments of our life. There is only this moment and this moment is alive with information and release of pressure. Breathe, Be, Sense, Feel Now.

Honouring the transition to 5D living, I moved to Duluth,

Minnesota,to be near the great Nature Being, Lake Superior.

She is different every day. 

A glimpse of her expression on December 14, 2015…

 

Suddenly

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

 

Am I ready?  Like everyone else, longings I hold in my heart are with me always.

I want to live in Duluth, near Lake Superior, in another state from mine.  I want a life fulfilled, time for walks on the shore of the Lake, time to work art, time to write and do intuitive work with clients. As Ken Wilber says, I know that these fulfillments can happen in any moment and without warning. Am I ready to receive them?  Or am I stuck in past adaptations that keep me from receiving them?

 

Right now, we are in an age-turning time.  We not only had the new century, we also had a new age, the turning of a Great Year of 26,000 years.  Everything is changing.  There is less hierarchy and more equality.  You might argue this point, however, consider how grassroots movements have changed everything from healthcare to politics to technology to relationships over the past 40 years or so.

 

We live in new ways now and one of the most significant changes is that we use our body, our senses, our intuition for knowing.  We feel things through rather than think things through.  In the former paradigm, mind was paramount, and with that, duality and hierarchy.

 

In this new time, there are no rules and the guidebook is our internal connection with nature. Blockage comes when we continue to respond to life’s choices from conditioned adaptations of closed thinking,  blocked feeling,  false knowing — ignoring.  The kind of  “willful blindness” that is in the media news now.

 

Being present means leaving these adaptations behind. Its hard work because over  two thousand years, restrictive adaptations have become ingrained. It takes courage to be present, free of former conditioning.  It takes courage to own what we feel, want, desire. It takes courage to be okay with that and know that we would not want it if it didn’t belong to us — magnetism attracts  so what magnetizes us, what interests us, does have an organic, connecting source within us.

 

Everyone has his or her own starting point for being present, for leaving the past behind.  I want to be ready for that Suddenly fulfillment.  I want to grasp it, grab it, say Yes to it. Use it and go on to the next desiring, wanting, needing.

 

What do you long for, and how are you open to suddenly receiving what you want?
