No Valor in Suffering

There is no valor in suffering.

God, or Source, has never asked us to learn through fear or pain. God knows not of fear, nor pain, nor suffering. God only knows Love and Compassion. Suffering is a human concept conceived within the antiquated programming of duality and handed down through the ages. Concepts that are in the process of dissipating as we expand our consciousness, if we are open and allow it to be so.

Healing DOES NOT require us to suffer by engaging or immersing ourselves in our old stories or their emotional dramas construed by the human mind. Recycling these stories over and over again only adds to the congestion of suffering. It does not clear it. It does not heal it.

Love is the healer. Pure and simple.

Healing DOES require us to clear old wounds, trauma, and energies that have become stuck in the body, often resulting in dis-ease. When these past wounds and dramas blip into our present awareness, they are simply asking us to “observe” from a more expanded perspective, beyond the stenosis of the human mind. This is how God sees, through the eyes of Love. This is how our Soul sees. Free of drama. Free of suffering. It is only the human mind that assigns suffering to the stories of the past that are surfacing for healing.

Nor are there are any lessons to be learned, lessons that have been wrapped up in the duality of self judgment. However, there is always more Wisdom to be garnered via our Soul as it distills every experience into it’s pure essence.
(see my prior post “Distilling the Old Stories” )

Humanity has been caught in the cycles and re-cycles of suffering. It is up to each of us individually to break free of these cycles. We do that with our Love and Compassion, free of any judgment or expectations.

When old wounds, stories, or emotions surface, simply wrap your Love around them and allow them to dissolve in the purity of Love without the need to engage or rewrite the story, which is mind based, rather than Heart based.

When feeling any discomfort, immediately rise to the highest orientation and view the situation anew. This is not denial, lack of caring, nor putting your head in the sand. This is living from the expanded consciousness of your GodSelf that offers infinite solutions rather than drawing upon the old battle-worn experiences that initially plummeted your energy.

It’s time!
Rise up, Beloveds!
See clearly as your GodSelf sees. Take the path of Ease and Grace. By doing so, we are creating a whole new paradigm for humanity and planet earth.

Climbing the Steps of Ascension

Ascension is much like climbing a flight of stairs. One foot is on the lower step, which is the support for lifting the other foot to the next level. There is a moment when the upper foot hovers in mid-air as the muscles (energy) push it upward to land on the next higher step.

This is what our life journey feels like. One foot in the old, while the other foot is lingering in mid-air on the way to the new. During this time, our consciousness is expanding into what feels like a very wobbly space compared to how we have been living our lives on the lower step.

Once the upper foot feels secure in its new placement, we lift the lower support foot to meet it. The old support system is no longer needed now because we are being supported by the upper foot with a new level of consciousness. With every expansion of consciousness, our Soul distills the Wisdom from each experience, and logs it into our Soul Template. It then unravels and deletes the emotional baggage and stories that have held us in limbo for multiple lifetimes. With our foot securely on the upper step, we can only continue to move forward if we release these extraneous energies, as uncomfortable as they me feel in the moment.

Once both feet are on the same step we are operating from a more expanded view with the clarity of our embodied Soul Wisdom. We are grounded with a new intuitiveness to take care of business. Clean our house, water the garden, go grocery shopping … etc. Because let’s face it, being in limbo can feel kinda spacey, and often inoperative.

Here there is a sense of gratitude for how far we’ve climbed. WE get to decide how long we choose to linger on each step before we raise to the next level of consciousness, because there is always another step awaiting us.

The current vibrations of the planet are amping up. There is less time in-between in which to linger. However, it’s important that you remember you are a Sovereign being with a unique Soul path. There is no herd mentality here with which to keep up with anyone else, nor any spiritual groups. This is your Sovereign Soul path.

As the planetary and cosmic vibrations amp up, the physical body goes through its own transformations. It’s important to honor the body with our own self care. [See my prior post “Monitoring Our Physical Bodies During Transformation” ]

Years ago, I was guided to stop attempting to ground the incoming energies in the old linear way by connecting heaven and earth, nor via the linearity of the chakra system. Energies move in waves and spirals. The energies of the physical body also move in waves. Attempting to direct energy via the human mind only slows down the process or in some cases blocks it completely. Thus, an increase in what is often referred to as ascension symptoms.

I have not been grounding in the old linear way for quite some years. As a result, most of the ascension symptoms have disappeared for me. Indeed, my body feels these transformations. But they are with such ease and grace now that I am flowing “with” them rather than attempting to direct or control energies. Our bodies KNOW what to do, if we relax and ALLOW it to do its prescribed job.

With every expansion of consciousness, I am reacting very differently to the flow of energy. I no longer see or experience things with the same stability with which I have been familiar. I realize energy is in constant motion. Nothing is static. Our dissatisfaction and suffering is rooted in an attempt to hold everything in place, which is impossible because. . . Life is in constant motion. [ See my post “Energy in Motion” ]

So as we are climbing the infinite steps of ascension, it’s important to remember: Ascension is not a goal. It is a journey, a journey of the heart and Soul. Be grateful for every experience for we shall never come this way again.

Distilling the Old Stories

When my daughter and her husband recently moved, the movers loaded all their earthly possessions onto the truck and disappeared. EVERYTHING was stolen, never to be seen again. My first instinct was. . . WoW! All the baggage of your old life has just disappeared. Of course, that was not what she wanted to hear. Nor is it what I said to her, but it was what I felt from within me.

I recall years ago while I was living in Spain as an ex-pat, my computer was struck by lightening and I lost everything without a back up. My first reaction was panic because not only had I lost all my files and my writing, I had lost all my contact information for friends and family. Little did I realize at the time, my old life had gone up in smoke and I was rising like the phoenix into a whole new life.

Fast forward. . . one of things my daughter was especially sad to lose were all her photos. Thus, I have been sorting through all our family photos, scanning them into my computer to share with her. This initiated a monumental project, one I have been putting off for quite some time (as I’m sure many of you can relate to)

What a walk down memory lane!
During the process, I have come to realize this: I have already lived multiple lifetimes within this lifetime, with many different aspects of myself at the forefront. So many photos with faces peering out at me. For some, I recognize the faces but the names are long gone just like the files on my computer. Mainly because I have moved so often from one place, one aspect of my life, to another in which the players have also changed along with the stage.

The most interesting thing this “life review” provided via my photos is that the old stories with their sticky emotional baggage have dissolved along with the names. There is no sadness tugging at my heart for those I have lost along the way. Nor any thoughts of what could have, would have been. What remains is the distillation of the old stories into the purity of Wisdom and the resulting joy for having had these amazing experiences with so many wonderful people.

THIS is how the Soul distills the wisdom of all our experiences (usually upon our death). It does not judge. It does not harbor any emotions such as shame, blame, guilt, sadness, loss, or anger. There is no such thing as good or bad. The Soul simply distills the wisdom and revels in each experience of our human self. Experiences the Soul would not have had without a physical body along with the Wisdom that gets carried forth throughout the eternity of the Soul. Wisdom we are currently drawing upon from a multitude of lifetimes past.

The words “You can’t take your baggage with you” were echoing in my ears as I moved through this process of distilling each photo over the past few weeks. I now realize. . . It is done! There is nothing pulling at my heart strings to hold me back any more. Having distilling the old stories, there is no more judgement, no more baggage, no more effort, no more heavy lifting required. My life has been simplified, purified, and I can now proceed judgment free with ease and grace.

In past incarnations, this distillation of the old stories did not usually happen until we were on our deathbed. In our current lifetime, we are being offered this sacred gift of Self realization while still in our human bodies. This choice, which is available for each one of us, is living Heaven on Earth.

Monitoring our Physical Bodies during Transformation

Monitoring our physical bodies during these times of transformation is paramount right now. The energies are strong and intense. The world around us is in chaos. Our bodies are feeling all of that.

Indeed, we signed up to be here on the planet during this time. We have already been prepared in so many ways to sustain during these times of unrest. And yet, speaking as one who has been quite proficient at navigating these energies, there are time when they are beyond my ability to do so with ease and grace. Those who know me, know that I am here as a flagship of Ease and Grace. I do NOT buy into any form of suffering. Yes, the physical body may be experiencing discomfort as it integrates these galactic energies because they feel foreign to the dense physicality we have become accustomed. In the past, we have had periods of time to acclimate. But, we have gone beyond time/space living in the NOW, allowing us no reprieve.

Last night my nervous system was vibing off the charts and I felt the need to call in my team to ask to slow things down. There was no judgment. There was no feeling that I was missing out on anything by slowing things down. Energy will always support us wherever we are in our journey. The response I felt was, “Thank you for calling upon us and being PRESENT enough to realize what your unique physical body needs?”

We are not victims to pain. Pain serves a purpose. It’s our physical body saying, “Look here. I need you to be present. I need your attention.”

Pain is the response to a physical impairment to guide us to respond in the appropriate manner. It can also flag a discrepancy between our accustomed state of well-being and the transformative energies of the present moment. But, we are not at the mercy of any energy or situation. We are the creators of these energies, which is in service to us.

Where did we learn that, as humans, we must endure pain?
Where did we learn that suffering is a way to heaven?

Fuck that!
Yes using the “F**” word is typically out of my vocabulary. But that’s the burst of energy that exploded as I wrote these questions. We have been royally duped, my BeLoveds. Because Heaven is here and now, beyond suffering, beyond human pain. WE get to choose!!

I am not willing to fry my neurological system simply to endure these escalating energies. I trust that “I” get to choose. I get to choose being present with what my physical body needs in this moment. And that does not exclude me from anything. It certainly does not exclude me from transforming. It simply allows me to do it at my own pace because energy is in service to us. We are not in service to anything external to ourselves.

There needs to a harmony with our presence and all that is flowing through us. Transition may, most probably does, include some amount of discomfort as we are releasing the old to make room for the new. But I have a threshold where I say, “No More! No more pain, no more discomfort.” Once I voice that as my choice, I am often amazed at how quickly things change. It was only my old pattern of ‘suffering through’ that held me in discomfort.

So last night when I asked to slow things down, my Point of Consciousness was immediately shifted from the human level of understanding to a more expanded Point of Consciousness that does not experience pain or discomfort. I became one with All-That-Is, free of pain, free of suffering.

WE, as a collective, are co-creating this experience of transformation. And each of us have a choice per how much we are willing to endure. The choice is always yours: pain and suffering. . . or ease and grace?

The Importance of Conscious Choice

The most glaring thing I’ve noticed about the COVID pandemic is our lack of choice. Restrictions such as lockdowns, masks, social distancing, vaccines, etc . . . . No wonder there is so much unrest, so much resistance, so many demonstrations when we feel that the freedoms on our daily lives have been taken away from us.

In a conversation with someone recently about the mandate of wearing masks, it became apparent to me that it’s not about wearing a mask, which in the end will only be temporary. Our ire has been ignited because we feel like we have lost our ability to choose.

I have always been a bit of a rebel. I was a precocious child that did not take kindly to others telling me what to do, or not do. As a triple Aries, I have always blazed my own path. So imposing all these COVID restrictions have caused me to reassess how I approach life.

When masks were first presented as a cautionary, I chose not to wear one because I trust my immune system. But when my local market posted a sign on the door that said: “No mask, No service. If you have a medical condition we are happy to do your shopping for you and deliver your groceries to your home.”, I now had a choice to make: To wear a mask while shopping, or to allow the market to be in service to me by delivering my groceries.

I appreciate that my community market gave me a choice. Many places did not. Because I enjoy shopping for my own groceries, especially fresh produce, I chose to wear a mask to do my shopping. I saw no need to battle with a company that was willing to accommodate us by shopping for us and delivering our groceries. It was this choice that allowed me to reduce any resistance or anger about compulsory dictates. Instead, I realized it was not a hardship to don a mask for the hour I was shopping and enjoy my meals of fresh produce.

There has been a lot of discussion on the internet about humans unconsciously becoming “sheep” by just following the “merry piper of control” during these imposed restrictions. Indeed there has been a lot of this!! Most humans are unconscious. They simply follow whatever their friends or family are doing. They do not stop to consider the options and make conscious choices for what is best for themselves.

This had me thinking about all the rules or laws that we need to abide by in our daily lives. Just as you, there are some that I agree with and some I do not. But to what avail would my resistance result other than keep my own ire activated and thus impair my own health?

I have to ask: How different are our laws than my own boundaries and rules. For instance, because I live in the forest (which can become a bit muddy) I require mu guests to remove their shoes before entering my home, which has light colored carpet. How different is this from being required to stop at a red light to ensure that drivers and passengers are safe from the chaos of everyone barreling into the intersection at once? Each has its purpose.

I have come to realize that it is my own Sovereignty that is at stake here. It is the lack of choice that bothers me, not the rules themselves. In many cases, I can simply walk around them because they really do not matter very much. In other cases, it is in service to humanity that I abide by them. Neither anger, nor resistance serve me. In reality, what I desire is peace. For me, peace is derived via my contemplation, understanding, and making a conscious choice.

IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP! !
The COVID restrictions have brought much to our attention. I see three groups of people. Those who are unconsciously following the rules because they are sleep walking through life. Those who are weighing their options and making choices as sovereign beings. And those who are choosing to resist and demonstrate to make changes for the whole.

Indeed, in some cases, we do need to stand up to defend our democracy and our right of speech. I have no desire to enter into a political discussion here. I am simply pointing out that once we become conscious, we realize we DO have choice.

The choice is whether to enter into life unconsciously or live consciously with each and every choice we face. Once we make a choice, follow it through without resistance. For it is the resistance that robs us of our Peace, which is why we desire the ability to make our own choices.

My question is this:
How much energy does it takes to resist, to push against something, creating more chaos rather than directing that energy toward finding a way to rise above it, to make the space necessary to create anew.

So what is your role?

Once we become conscious, we realize there are many roles to be played. There are those who are on the front lines in positions of power who are able to make changes in governing. There are those who are banding together, demonstrating to have their voices heard. And there are those who are quietly working behind the scenes to create anew. All are important Conscious Choices that are making a difference to create a better world for all of humanity.

Facing the Challenges of Transformation

These days the media is rife with ghastly news and it continues to build more and more upon itself. Their job no longer seems to report the news. Rather to stir up more drama in order to sell their words. It has become so exhaustive I have turned it all off. Glancing at a few headlines per day is all I need to keep myself abreast of what’s happening in the world. By doing so, I get to decide what is important in my life, not the hypnosis of the media.

Hidden in the background of all this hype, I have been finding tidbits of news that excite me. These are not the predominate headlines, but if one looks below the surface, you can find them. The primary headlines that call my attention are the scientific articles.

Did you know?

  • Our entire solar system, which is circling its own central sun, is in a totally different space in the universe than it was 100 years ago. New planets, dwarf planets, astroids, comets, and unnamed spacial bodies are being discovered everyday.
  • We are traveling through a photon belt of light particles that are raising the vibration of the planet and initiating planetary transformations as demonstrated by all the current earth and climate changes. Scientists have also discovered changes in all the other planets in our solar system.
  • As the vibration of the planet is rising, measured by the Schuman Resonance, so is the vibration of the physical body, which is also in the state of transformation, which attributes to the abundance of unusual aches and pains of our bodies.
  • Time is speeding up so fast it is beginning to warp, no longer maintaining the old linear timelines. As a result we are feeling disoriented, with no idea of what time of day it is, loss of chunks of time, or extension of extra long days.
  • As time speeds up, the time/space continuum is changing and we are in the process of making a jump from a duality based reality into the quantum, which only operates in the present moment, void of past or future. It feels like we are walking in oscillating realities, much like dementia, with loss of memory and nothing to hold onto anymore.

This is only a small list of what science is now discovering. These are exciting times of discovery and transformation for humanity and all living beings throughout the cosmos!

There are times my human mind is finding these paramount transformations to be very challenging. Especially since so much is falling away and there is nothing to hold onto anymore. I have to keep reminding myself that I am not my human mind. I am SO much more than a human mind. With each expansion of consciousness I am remembering more of Who I AM each and every day.

There are many gifts being offered during these transformations, if we are willing to slow down and realize them. These periods of time warps and oscillating realities remove us from our old habits and patterns. Thus, creating space to allow the Presence of the Soul to anchor more fully into our physical bodies.

It has always been the job of the Soul to distill all our experiences into our own divine Wisdom. The loss of memory is not actually a loss. What we are losing are the “stories” and emotions created by the human mind. What we are gaining is the Wisdom being distilled by the Soul from all of our experiences. When one speaks of an old Soul, it is one who has gained the Wisdom of many experiences.

This distillation of our human experiences is the natural process that happens during the process of human death as we transition from the physical to the non-physical. In this lifetime, we are being offered the rare gift of being able to fully commune with our Soul’s Wisdom while still in our physical bodies. In order to do so, one must be willing to step away from the media and the collective consciousness, go within one’s self where the Soul resides, and allow these natural and innate transformations to take place without the resistance of the human mind.

Herein lies the challenge. For the human mind has been running its program for eons of time. It knows no other way. The only way to break free of the old programing is to break free of the old time/space continuum where the program is running.

THIS is what we are now experiencing as we are floating through the photon belt, with the rising vibration of the planet and our physical bodies. It can be a natural process if we allow it to be. For it IS happening, whether we are aware of it or not. The only thing keeping it from happening is attempting to hold onto the old, which creates resistance to allowing the new.

Very few humans are even aware of these transformations, and many who are aware are reacting with fear. There is an element of death as we transition from one state of consciousness to another with this ensuing quantum leap. And most humans fear death. Adding the factor that as the vibration of the body increases, this vibration feels foreign to the limbic brain, whose job is to keep us safe. (see this prior article about the limbic brain) The entire neurological system goes into fight or fight mode, causing irritability within ourselves and amongst other people. It requires us to shift our attention from the outside world to our inner world and do what we can to soothe our physicality during these transitions.

The world must go through its own transformation as does each individual person. There is no normalcy to our daily lives anymore. Herein lies the challenge: Not to attempt to return to the old normalcy. But to continually re-mind our selves of the illustrious beings that We truly Are, beings who have simply forgotten that we are the I AM of All-That-Is. We are the creators of the new simply by being Present in the fullness of Who We Are.

It is only through my own perception that I am able to experience peace in the world and that peace resonates from within me. As I savor the the Peace that passeth all understanding I become the Peace of the World. Herein lies my peace during these challenging times. (see this prior article about insuring our peace )

Big hugs to all of you who persist in carrying forth continual expanded consciousness. And an abundance of gratitude for your “Presence” here, for we are the reminders and reflections for each other to carry forth in Love and Joy.

How We Create Our Own Reality

It’s been a HOT week here in the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures have been soaring into the triple digits, 30 degrees above normal. Most of us don’t have Air-Conditioning because it’s not necessary in this temperate climate. I recall the days we used to joke that summer never began until after the 4th of July. This year summer has sprung with a vengeance, way hotter and way sooner than we have become accustomed. When I went to my closest in search of some cooler clothing, I realized I only have two summer dresses. Two! That should be a clue as to how often I have a call to wear such apparel.

As the media was continually broadcasting “Extreme temperatures for the NW”, and everyone on fb was posting high temperature screen shots while talking about how hot they are, my body immediately reacted by overheating even before the outdoor temperatures reached their zenith. I jumped into action totally focused on attempting to control everything I could do to cool down.

And then this quote from Abraham Hicks popped up with perfect timing:

“We are all Vibrational Beings. You’re like a receiving mechanism that when you set your tuner to the station, you’re going to hear what’s playing. Whatever you are focused upon is the way you set your tuner, and when you focus there for as little as 17 seconds, you activate that vibration within you. Once you activate a vibration within you, Law of Attraction begins responding to that vibration, and you’re off and running — whether it’s something wanted or unwanted.” ~Abraham Hicks~

This is what I call my “Point of Consciousness” and I was particularly reminded of it this week. I realized the more I read about the heat, the more overheated I became. At some point, it became apparent that I simply needed to shift my focus from being hot to something else.

Once I turned off fb and the news broadcasts (re-read that word “broad-cast, is that like casting a spell?) and made a few simple physical adjustments, I distracted myself by choosing a few good books to read.

Voila’!! Once I shifted my Point of Consciousness from panic about the weather, being overheated, and attempting to control my environment . . . to my simple well-being, I became much more comfortable and heat tolerant. My grumpiness dissolved and life resumed its well balanced rhythm once again, irrelevant of the weather.

This is true of everything in our lives. Be it the weather, body’s aches and pains, chaos of the world around us, or other people’s attitudes. Energy naturally seeks resolution, unless we are mucking about with it by trying to fix or control it, which only creates resistance to the natural flow of life. Energy goes where attention flows. By shifting my Point of Consciousness, I am creating that which I do want rather than what I do not want.

The outdoor temperatures have cooled down somewhat with the sweet scent of jasmine wafting in from my balcony. This morning I was able to quietly reflect on my reactions and the result of how I experienced the past few days.

I was once again reminded: THIS is how we create our own reality, victims to nothing!!! Not the weather, the government, social systems, media, relationships, nor other people. WE are sovereign beings, the CREATORS OF OUR OWN REALITY via our own Point of Consciousness.

Return of the Rainbow Tribes

I was guided by White Buffalo Calf Woman to share this today as all of the 12 sacred rays are swirling in our energy fields. May you be blessed by these energies and may her words soothe the heartbreak of the past as we rise into new revelations of Love.

“On the initial days after the birth of this planet, the dazzling sun shone upon it with a multitude of colors streaming from the original twelve sacred rays of the Primal Creator. Each ray carried its own unique vibration, sound, and color. As they danced together, they whirled and twirled glorious ethereal art and music beyond our imagination.

As the energies matured, the elements manifested as fire, water, earth, and air. Nature became the proliferation we’re accustomed to today. Fabulous beings of light walked upon this earth embodying an amalgamation of the twelve sacred rays.

However, according to the divine plan, as the density of the planet increased, human awareness decreased. Some of the higher more refined vibrations were no longer sustainable in this dense environment. So one by one, many of these rays disappeared from human perception, but continued to hold their sacred space for the eventual planetary ascension as we progressed through the natural cosmic cycle. As a result, the planet fell into third-dimensional duality and only four primary rays remain.

As many of the ancient prophecies predicted, the day would come when the rainbow tribes would once again reunite and dance together in a golden age of harmony, creating art and music beyond anything this planet has ever experienced before. However, in order for that to occur, all twelve sacred rays need to be grounded in the earth’s core.

Although all the rays are held within the cellular memory of every being on the planet, one ray is always more prevalent than the others for each of us. Thus, each being responds to life from that dominant ray. Their passion, purpose, and gifts to the world have evolved from this one specific ray. Up until now, only a limited number of rays have been active because the density of our planet could not support the more refined vibrations.

To your dismay, some of the rays you have been carrying have felt dissonant in your life because there has been no resonance for them here on earth. You have never understood the way human beings think and act, for you have a totally different perspective of life. With the grounding of the twelve rays, the hidden complementary rays will act as harmonizers. With this shift in vibration, you will be able to fully relax into your human body and enjoy the depth of life to its fullest.

Today, everything is in the process of changing. The expanded vibration of the planet can now support all these frequencies. By anchoring these vibrations in the core of mother earth, the missing rays become reactivated to open new potentials that will benefit all of mankind.

These harmonizing vibrations transcend the illusions of separation and duality. Thus, we shall walk together in harmony on the sacred path of peace across all cultural boundaries. We will begin to initiate the laying down of weapons, living in harmlessness, in balance with all beings, and working side by side to enhance life.

The rainbow tribes are gathering once again. It is time to birth the new reality that has been written in the prophecies passed down through eons of time. This is the precipice upon which we now stand as the Universe fully opens to us once again.” ~White Buffalo Calf Woman~

Spiritually Coming of Age

Today’s technology has expanded us to new levels of communication allowing us to connect with others around the world. With the current pandemic we have been unable to gather in person. There has been a sadness for the lack of personal touch. A loss of hugs and ability to look eye to eye. At the same time, it has challenged us to develop and open new avenues for coming together in ways we may not have done in the past.

The ability to create events and gatherings to attend in person have momentarily come to a halt. But with technologies like zoom, youtube, and facebook “live”, we are able to reach out globally beyond our local communities. Social media allows anyone to come online to speak live, in the moment. There is no need for creating programs, pre-planning, or advertising. This is particularly supportive of our spiritual community. Anyone can spontaneously speak from the heart in response to the current events or energies that are effecting all of us. They no longer need to be famous spiritual teachers with established platforms. For are we not all teachers, each in our own unique ways?

Several “live” facebook videos came to my attention in the past few days. With that came a welcome realization for which I am very grateful.

Born as a baby boomer, our counterculture generation has been attributed as the spiritual awakeners with our messages of Love and Peace. According to Carlos Santana, ”The ’60s were a leap in human consciousness. Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, they led a revolution of conscience.” And that legacy continues to permeate society.

Our freedom of expression blasted through society’s boundaries with sex, drugs, and rock ’n roll. We initiated social, economic and political equality with the civil rights movement, women’s empowerment, global travel, and we landed on the moon. Technology was introduced that has become mainstream today, from the first telephones and televisions to present day iPhones.

The youthful proponents of counterculture, known as the hippies, disapproved of the modern world so much many dropped out of formal religions and sought refuge from it in communes and mystical religions. Thus, the New Age was born.

We opened the doors and all our spiritual work paved the way for new generations to step in. A few years ago, I and many others of my age reached a point in which we knew we were done! It was time for a change in roles. We had done our part and the world was ready for us to hand our torches off to the new ones.

We have come of age. We have become the elders of the tribe of humanity. We are the grandmothers and grandfathers who continue to hold the vision and the wisdom. Within our maturity we have found inner peace, tranquility, and the freedom to listen quietly without judgement. Speaking when spoken to without the need to profess or pontificate.

Indeed, there are still those who are choosing to be out in the global world. And there are those who are simply here to shine their light and share their love via simple acts of kindness in the midst of turmoil for those who are lost in the darkness. There are many in our generation who have chosen to simplify life and retire to truly enjoy life much like the grandparents who enjoy their grandkids beyond the need to parent them. Each has their own unique soul path and each is needed as part of the whole.

During my spiritual journey, I have journaled most of my experiences and distilled “wisdom”, much of it in the form of poetry. In the past few years, I have stepped into my new role by publishing many of my writings in numerous books. (available on Amazon @ www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard ) What a joy it is to revisit these pearls of wisdom during the publishing process. But I have no desire or passion to step into the spotlight. For I have turned that over to the new ones.

Watching recent “live” videos, I look at the ones who have taken up the torch and revel in how amazing they are! They too have “Come of Age”. We opened the doors and they didn’t hesitate to step in with a different perception of life, free of our old baggage. They are fresh and new. They are wired differently. They are pure of heart.

Our world is in the mist of a major transformation. Duality is struggling to draw to a close. Although many humans are more open, others are more closed . Therein lies the chaos of present day. But these new ones are solid in their “Presence”. Their spiritual messages are no longer about New Age teachings or those from the dusty old tomes of ancient masters. They are adeptly responding to present day life in the midst of transition. And they are doing a stellar job of it!

So I am here to honor each of you. Those who have chosen to pass on the torch. And those who have taken up the torch and stepped out in ways our generation was not prepared to do.

Bravo Beloveds! You bring a whole new level of wisdom to the forefront. I am very grateful to be one of the observers in the peanut gallery right now. Enjoying life, adding my wisdom when called upon, and celebrating all the transformational changes that are taking place in this amazing lifetime for all of humanity. As we ALL Come of Age!

Energy in Motion

For the past several weeks I feel as though I have been living in a fog. Although I’ve experienced numerous blips of this fogginess over the past few years, I’ve never experienced it for such a long span of time. Nothing stimulates my interest and nothing feels very satisfying. It’s been much like the movie “Groundhog Day” where I get up, get dressed, eat a few meals, move through my usual routine, then return to bed. Get up the next day and repeat.

At the same time. . . I’m living an oxymoron where life feels totally unstable. There is flagrant instability with global weather, world events, and systems collapsing all around us. But I am experiencing it even more so within my own life. It feels like I’ve had a full memory wipe out, unable to grasp onto even a tidbit of information to make sense of anything. And surprisingly, I have been functioning just fine. In fact, my life is flowing quite smoothly. Perhaps because I have no memory or expectations within this fog with which to judge anything.

This morning I finally awoke feeling much more clear and present in my body. At first I thought I had been floundering out of my body because everything has felt floaty and wobbly. I now realize I have been acclimating to a new way of being with the realization that nothing in life is static, even though it may appear to be and I have grown accustomed to engaging with energy from this erroneous belief.

In reality: Energy is in constant motion. Life is continually changing. Otherwise we would all be dead and gone.

Instead of attempting to ground with the earth, or into my physical body, I realize my consciousness has expanded into what feels like a very wobbly space compared to how I have been living all of my life. I am reacting very differently to the flow of energy. I no longer see or experience things with the same stability with which I have been familiar. It appears to me that humanity’s dissatisfaction and suffering is all rooted in our attempt to hold everything in place. But, nothing is static. Instead, energy is in constant motion. Life is in constant motion.

I have awoken feeling content, lighter, more at ease. I’m no longer experiencing energy as I have been accustomed and my human self is acclimating to this newness. I no longer need to figure things out. The search is over. I don’t need to know how things work because energy is in service to me in a new and different way in each and every moment. There are no repeats, nothing to fix, no need to get anything right, as I have been attempting to do for most of my life. Instead, I’m living a life of infinite new potentials.

All our lives, everything we’ve ever done has been for the purpose of feeling love, peace, joy, and contentment. So why not simply BE those things without the need to “do” something to attain them. Because in the end, they are not attainable. They are in fact, Who We Are. And the way they express is changing in each given moment. There is nothing I need do, other than choose.

THIS is the new ME, My Energy, sovereign, free, and clear in every New moment.
