Red Flag of Pain

Red-FlagPain has a way of enveloping us into its covert embrace. It’s concealed clutching isn’t visible to others. So we get no sympathy unless we speak about it. And boy do we love to speak about it! Perhaps that’s the only way we think we can make it real.

Oh I hear many of you screaming at me….But it is real!! I feel it. I live with it ever day. It keeps me from doing everything I want to do.

Okay. If that’s your reality, I’ll leave you to it. But you may want to read on and see if you choose to continue living that reality….or not.

Pain is YOU waving a Red Flag.

Pain is your Inner BEing trying to get your attention because you are out of alignment with your authentic Self. Since a simple reminder of discomfort didn’t do it, perhaps debilitating pain will.

That’s how much YOU love you. The bigger, more expanded YOU wants you to live in alignment with who you really are. Not the illusion of yourself that you’ve created to make others happy. Not the mask that you wear to hide your true feelings. Not the character you’ve created to walk on stage with the drama that the world is playing out.

The bigger more expanded YOU knows you’re a Star in your own right. You don’t need to take on bit parts in someone else’s play. Your unique gifts are begging to come out and shine.

So every time you step out of alignment with your Stardom, there’s a bit of discomfort. Just a little reminder, a tap on the shoulder that you’re repeating someone else’s lines rather than speaking your own truth.

And if you choose to grip onto those foreign lines, the tighter you grip, the more energy gets stuck and OUCH!!!! There it is…..the Red Flag of Pain.

Now you have a choice. You can bury the flag. There are lots of ways you can do that. I don’t need to list all the ways. Most of us have tried them. The relief is usually temporary at best. Or… you can say, “Thank you Red Flag. I get it. I appreciate the message.”

Now that you’ve got the message, do you file it away in your “to do” pile for later or do you take action to align with the YOU that’s calling your name?

Pain comes from holding on to that which is not true…
in other words, pain comes from being out of alignment with your true Self.
The solution is simple….take a big breath, drop the pretenses and re~align.

Do you love yourself enough to re-align with the bigger YOU, the omnipotent omnipresent omniscient YOU, the YOU that knows no pain?

What reality do you choose?

Shearing Away the Old Debris



A few days ago I ventured deep into the old growth forest in which I live. There was a grove of sawtooth ferns that were begging my attention. It’s springtime and new fronds were pushing their way through the ground with spritely new growth. But the undergrowth was a tangle of dead brown bracken.

These ferns were immense with fronds almost as tall as I am. Granted, at 5 foot 3 inches, I’m a little imp of a woman. So to me these were huge. I got down on my hands and knees and crawled into the undergrowth my a sheers in hand. Snip snip snip went the sheers as I cut away all the undergrowth gently pulling it away from the base of the plants.

I didn’t simply grab and pull. I was conscious with each snip. But I didn’t stop and ask each frond why it was lying limp on the ground. I didn’t analyze it’s demise. I didn’t ask what was pinching the life force out of it. I simply knew it was no longer living a vital life and it was time to cut it free.

Branch by branch, I snipped and cleared away the debris until all that remained was a proud stand of vital green fronds. A core of lusty new growth curled at its center ready to spring forth with new virility. It’s vibrancy brought a smile to my face, knowing these plants would continue to foster stronger growth now that they were free of the old deteriorated bits.

We are just like that stand of ferns. Overtime, some of our fronds have shriveled and died because the life force has been pinched off. Sometimes, we’ve pinched the life off out of habit. Sometimes life had simply taken a new turn and the old is no longer viable. Other times it’s been intentional because those fronds no longer serve us. The reason doesn’t matter. What matters is that we take the time to shear the dead bits away and carry them off to the recycle bin to foster strong new growth.

The next day I walked out into that section of the forest and noticed how vibrant and lush it was in the sparkle of morning dew. I crouched down to take a seat under the lush grove of ferns and much to my delight I found a new family of faeries had moved in! By shearing away the old, not only were the ferns thriving. But they are also providing a home for a whole new generation of faerie folk.

That’s exactly what we’re doing when we snip away the old lifeless bits…. of our personal stories, health complaints, financial woes, political games, religious dogma, etc, etc. When we shear way the old debris, not only do we free our Joy and Happiness to flourish, we provide space for a whole new generation to prosper and thrive.

Perhaps you may want to get out the snipers and free your Joy of Life!!!

Conscious Illumination of the Shadow


The time of Illumination is upon us. That which has been unconscious is being illuminated and revealing itself into our consciousness. This is happening for us personally, as well as the collective unconsciousness. It’s showing up in our dreamtime, our daily lives, and the network news. There is no hiding anymore. The blessed shadow self that so many fear is now in our face.

But I ask you, why do you fear the shadow?
Is it not the light that creates the shadow? For without the light there can be no shadow.

When you stand in the warm rays of the sun do you fear the shadow it creates? Do you attempt to run from it? Or can you turn toward it and befriend it? Can you dance with your shadow with playful childlike abandon as it imitates your every move?

The shadow is after all an expression of you, YOU who are the embodiment of God. Is it not time to “see” with new eyes, the eyes of God? Can you see your shadow as one who has silently partnered you for so very long, one who is finally making itself known, asking for your loving embrace?

As your unconditional lover, your shadow has never left your side. And now, it is facing you with open arms. Can you lovingly embrace it, without fear, without judgment? Can you thank it for stepping into full view in order to complete your wholeness, knowing you may not welcome it? Can you do that?

Can you forgive that which never needed to be forgiven, love that which awaits you, and step fully into your Conscious Illumination……

Don’t Allow your ego to Derail You


We are living in extraordinary times!! Never in the history of humanity have we moved through so many different “thought forms” so quickly. Some might call them beliefs, but I can’t quite give them that much credence.

Many of them have been foundational. For example, we once believed the earth was flat and we’d sail right off the other end of it. We also believed that the sun revolved around the earth. We now know differently because they have been scientifically disproven. So overtime, mankind has been able to dispel those thought forms and replace them with new ones.

But what if we had gotten stuck in those beliefs, like we have on a spiritual level with so many other “thought forms” that haven’t been proven, nor dis-proven  scientifically?

The New Age has really expanded our perceptions of what is real and what is not. But it’s still perception. We each live by our own truth. And I can not give that a capital “T” because a capital “Truth” is all inclusive and we are still living in separation.

I am not implying that we need to become exactly the same, but nor can we declare that our truth is the only truth. I say that individually and with broad religious strokes as well. I’m not writing this to debunk religion or your beliefs. I’m writing this to guide you into your heart’s truth and stop allowing someone else to lay down the tracks for your life.

That’s what belief systems do, they lay down tracks and expect you to ride their rails. But jumping the track isn’t always easy. It means venturing out on a path of your own making. And it can be lonely at times. That is if you believe that you ARE alone. That in itself is a belief that encapsulates you.

What if you aren’t alone? What if there are others awaiting you further down the path just around the curve where you can’t yet see? What if they’ve already laid out a Sumptuous Feast to welcome you and celebrate your freedom?

You see, that’s how it works here on planet earth. In order to walk into the New, you’ve got to jump the tracks and break away from the crowd whom you’ve depended upon to meet your every need. You’ve got to become a Sovereign being who is able to generate your own energy and create your own path. And then, as you round the bend, strong in who you know yourself to be, you walk into a whole New family of Sovereign beings of Love awaiting you with a sumptuous feast of welcome.

That moment on the train when you’re deciding whether to jump the rails or not is one of the most difficult decisions you’ll make. You might even make the jump and then change your mind waiting by the track for the next train to come along so you can jump aboard. And that’s okay too, ride the train until you’re totally prepared and ready.

You see, once you make the jump, you’ve left duality behind. There is no right or wrong. There is no hurry because there is no time. And if you don’t feel prepared, there will always be another train chugging along and you can jump aboard and ride further down the rails for a bit. There is no judgment here.

I faced this decision just last night. The day before, I had leaped off the rails and was standing in no man’s land, feeling really great about my decision. And then I read someone’s post on facebook that totally debunked my decision. This post was by someone I respect, so I had to give the post some amount of credence. Mind you, this was their post, not a comment on one of mine, so they had no idea they had effected me in such a way. But it was just enough to make me question my decision.

I did what I always do when I’m caught in indecision. I went into my heart and asked for Divine Wisdom. Then I went to bed. My dreams were restless all night long. But the message in my early morning dream was so clear. I had no doubt. My ego placed that post on facebook so I would question my decision. My ego was trying to derail me from my new, somewhat fragile, decision.

But you know what. I turned my back on those old rails. It’s amazing how one piece of information can unravel all the “stories” you’ve considered to be your truth. Beware of that which you call truth. The only real Truth, with a capital “T”, is Love. When your path is paved with Love, you debunk the illusory stories to create anew.

I turned my back on the rails and walked down the path as a Sovereign being, around the corner and….. I think you already know what I found there. I ran into the arms of my family of Sovereign beings of Love awaiting me with hugs and a sumptuous feast of welcome.

So my message to you is this: Don’t allow your ego to derail the Sovereign Being you know yourself to be. Make a conscious choice to walk your own path. Your Family of Love awaits you.

Note: If you don’t understand what a Sovereign being is, you may want to read my prior post “A Sovereign Being is Self Generating”.

A Sovereign being is Self-generating


What is a Sovereign being?
A Sovereign being is a Christed being, whole, complete and Self-generating.

This is the form in which we first arrived to the planet. But I don’t need to repeat the old stories. Yes, there are many old stories all with the same plot. Man fell from grace into separation. But I find that difficult to believe, because Grace is still ever-present in our lives. We have simply been taught, yes taught, to separate ourselves from it.

Oh we can divert into the stories of victimhood here. Who did what to whom. And repeat the same old, same old. Or….we can rise above it all and reaffirm the Grace that permeates everything. The Grace that opens our eyes to more of who we think we are.

Humanity is in the process of awakening to the totality of who we are as Christed beings. In the past, we’ve done that by leaving our bodies behind here on the planet and transitioning into more expanded realms.

But things have changed here on planet earth. The vibration of Love has enveloped us and lifted humanity to a higher more expanded frequency. One in which we have the opportunity to become Christed beings in physical bodies walking upon this planet as Heaven on Earth. Some call this the New Earth.

There are a group of us who are well aware of this. We’ve been doing our best to clear the old carbon~based templates and embody the new crystalline templates to fully embody our birthright as Christed beings.

Eons ago, the God Source created man in his/her image. Ah yes, we are God beings, whole, complete and Self-generating, just like God. But we were never replications of God, nor are we children of God….WE are God also.

There are those who speak of Oneness. Oh such confusion this word creates for us. Many think we have fallen from grace and need to earn our way back into Oneness. But in reality we are much more than our origins.

The creation of man is a precious Masterpiece meant to expand and experience infinite potentials. Man is a crystal with a multitude of facets. With each mastery we add another unique facet that sparkles in union with the Light. We all originate from the One, but there is no “going back” to that Oneness. There is an infinite expansion of the Oneness.

Duality has served us well and now it has drawn to a close as we awaken to a more expanded awareness. Through separation we have been given the opportunity to fine-tune and polish each of our facets. Look how brightly you are shining… all the colors…all the musical vibrations you are emitting. Oh how glorious you have become in the amalgamation of your personal Oneness!!! And therein lies your Sovereignty.

A Sovereign being is whole and complete, no longer dependent on anything outside themselves for their Well-being. They generate their own energy, no longer in need of anything to feed upon, no longer in need of another person to complete themselves. No longer buffeted around by external energies, ascension symptoms disappear. No longer in need of super foods or supplements. Eating becomes a joy, a celebration of living rather than the sustenance for the physical body.  A Sovereign being reverses the aging process because there is no  longer any diminishment, only fulfillment as a fully Christed being.

The New Earth is Sovereign based. Fifth dimensional beings do not participate in victim mentality. They are not concerned with saving others because they understand that we’re each on our own journey. The angels never swooped in to save you. They offered guidance when called upon, but they are not your saviors.  They live as Sovereign beings. Use their example to create a new way of being on the planet.

So let’s get down to basics.
How do I become a Self-generating Sovereign being?

You choose Love based living rather than duality based living. Duality based living is a finite limited linear system…energy in, energy out. If there’s not enough incoming energy, the body becomes depleted. Love based living is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent  with an infinite, ever-expanding flow of energy.

The new crystalline templates are already in place. A simple way to make this shift is to sit quietly in meditation, or go for a walk in nature. See your heart as a crystalline challis. Allow your heart to generate a flow of Love that eventually fills the challis until it overflows into your whole body bathing all your minute cells. At first it may feel like a trickle, becoming a lazy stream and then flooding into rivers of Love. The more often you do this, the more quickly your body will shift from utilizing external energy to utilizing your Love energy from within.

Eventually you become so exquisitely full you think you’ll explode with Love. And you do. That, my Beloveds, is the Big Bang!!! The explosion that originally birthed you into being. And now, as a Sovereign being, you are Self-generating, creating a New Earth and capable of birthing Universes.

Conscious Reality


I’m excited that humanity is awaking to a more expanded conscious reality. We are all experiencing more of who we are and the totality of life. At first, some of our new awareness and abilities don’t seem to make sense. Nor do we trust them. And yet, our soul continues to whisper in our ear and our heart yearns for more.

I’ve experienced so many shifts and changes in my life. It feels like my whole world has transformed into something unexplainable. Instead of life being a repetitive cycle of more of the same with just a little bit more. It has blossomed into infinite potentials and exciting newness.

I welcome these new experiences with open arms. No matter how unusual they may appear, I don’t attempt to explain them because that constricts me to my analytical mind which weighs everything against past experience. Much of what we’re awakening to is beyond our prior experience, beyond the mind.

That’s why living in the moment of NOW is the only way to surpass our old patterns of living. Some days I don’t know what time it is, what day it is, even what year it is. How perfect is that!!! It means I’m living in the moment of now where I’m aligned with Divine Intelligence and everything flows without restriction to our mind’s perceived time and space.

In order to expand my consciousness, I’ve given up the need to understand everything. I simply open more fully and flow with what’s presented no matter how strange it may appear…… and eventually it all makes sense in a more compatible way than my mind could ever understand, nor conjure. The more I relax into it, the more comfortable I become in this new ever-expanding reality. And the more conscious I become of who I AM.

I often find that when I expand into a new level of consciousness, others around me don’t “get” what I’m talking about. Sometimes I even become invisible to them. A common response when most people experience this is to step back into the old comfort zone, to remain “seen” and accepted by others. For some, that may be a temporary answer, but numbing down will only dampen your heart. :(

In reality it is YOU that’s calling for your attention. All the parts of you that you’ve never “seen” before are coming online. Gifts beyond your imagination are bestowed upon you. You’ve been asking for abundance. THIS is your abundance!

It will probably not look the way you expect it to look, otherwise you would already be living it. At first it may seem like a faerie tale. Perhaps it is the faeries who are whispering in your ear? Perhaps it’s your soul? Perhaps you know not what it is or how it appeared. Does it really matter?

Conscious reality is ever-expanding. It’s in the palm of your hand.
Do you really want to turn your back on it?

Sun Flares ~ Humanity’s Gift from the Universe


Whoosh… the planet is being bombarded by intense sun flares again. Just the thought of it has tingles running through my body.

If you ask my mind what those tingles are, it would say, “Oh no, more disruption!!” If you ask my cells, they would say, “Bravo, more upgrades!!!” If you ask my spirit, it would say, “Ah yes, expanded consciousness.”

Of course it’s all of that and more.

The news media has everyone in a tither. The sun is, or has, reversed its poles. Run for cover!!! Expect earth changes…volcanoes, earthquakes, geomagnetic storms. Some are even yelling armageddon.

The new agers are already complaining of more impending ascension symptoms… headaches, body aches, lack of sleep, too much sleep, agitation, etc, etc,

But while others are tithering in fear and focused on impending discomfort, my cells are singing a new song. My cells are integrating new harmonies, activating new DNA, creating new pathways to improved health and vitality. My Spirit is expanding its consciousness, absorbing new wisdom and reveling in new potentials. I AM humming with deLight.

So what are sun flares?
Are they a fluke of nature, part of an ongoing cycle, or impeding doom?

What if sun flares are a sacred gift from the Universe
. . . . . rather than something to be feared?
What if sun flares are projecting photons of Light filled with new information
. . . . . rather than simply disrupting our current waves of technology?
What if sun flares are sparks of energy activating our dormant DNA
. . . . . rather than simply irritating our physicality?
What if sun flares are rebalancing Earth’s energy
. . . . . in response to man’s neglect?
What if it’s possible to experience sun flares with Joy and Gratitude
. . . . . rather than bracing ourselves for their arrival?

As I’m writing this, the Universe is responding to my plethora of questions by bathing me in its magnificent glory. The sky is alight with the most effervescent shades of pink that I have ever seen as the sun bursts over the horizon breathing vibrant life~giving energy into my physical body. Pink… the color of Love. Pink… the color of Grace. Sun flares are bathing us in Love and Grace.

Indeed, sun flares are the Universe Loving us in the way it knows best…. by bathing us in Sacred enLightenment.
