Initiating the Tribe of Joy-Beams

wendy-andrew-art

 

I’m a WayShower, an Ascension Trailblazer, an Expander of Consciousness, call me what you like, it matters not, I’m not into labels. Who I know myself to be is a very ancient soul who came to this planet on “Mission Gaia” eons ago. I remember traversing the omniverse to arrive with a small group on the “eve of form”, spearheading a very gradual process that took many lifetimes to fully descend into the density of the third dimension.

Mission Gaia was dreamed into being to experience the gift of separation to learn about the creation of form and more fully know ourselves as the Divine who thrives on expansion and the flow of creation. During this process, we forgot who we are, which introduced a certain amount of distress, anguish and adversity.

Over the years many joined us along the way. Eventually we became so embroiled in the underworld of forgetfulness we have had to fight our way back to the light. At first we became Warriors of Light, wielding our swords to fight against that which appears to oppress us. Once our remembrance began to return we graduated to LightWorkers, working hard as healers or for causes to safeguard the planet and improve life for all of humanity. Some have branched off to become LightBearers, those who are consciously increasing the Love and Light for others to follow in their wake. Others have been working behind the scenes blazing trails into the unknown to create a new foundation from which to build upon and expand as the old crumbles away.

A few months ago a message from my Inner Being informed me that as of this September Equinox 2016 “Mission Gaia”, which began eons ago, is coming to a close, all contracts successfully complete.

Success!! Success!!! Success!!!!
Mission Gaia complete! What a celebration that inspired!!

Together with our “teams” of starbeings, ascended masters and angelics, we have raised the frequency of the planet to her original vibration, anchored a new crystalline grid, and transformed our physicality into crystalline LightBodies. Gaia has been anchored into her new trajectory on her way back Home to become a teaching planet for the entire omniverse and the honored “Hearth for the Universal Councils of Peace”. What a delightful Hearth that will be to gather around with all of our Star families sipping on our cosmic elixirs.

With the conclusion of Mission Gaia we are now being given new choices. Some will leave with bells on their toes because they are complete. Some will reincarnate to experience the New Earth as new seedlings. Some will hang around to facilitate the current transition with causes that are near and dear to their hearts. Some will step into a whole new playground of creation with their transformed physicality to wield these new energies like children filled with wonderment brandishing the nifty tool belts we’ve acquired over many lifetimes. The choice is a personal one and all choices are equally honored and valued. What does your soul want to experience? The options are infinite because we’ve died to the old and risen from the ashes as the Phoenix gliding into infinite new potentials.

Whoosh… if we knew then, what we know now would we have still signed up for this under-taking. I don’t know about you but my hand still would have been the first that shot up into the air to volunteer.

No doubt about it ascending has been a bit of a bear to endure, but I have to ask, when did ascension become a disease, riddled with symptoms? When did we become victims to the suffering of ascension? Isn’t that the old mentality? Just like everyone else, my old life has been disintegrated, home, marriage, career, friends, etc. I have experienced my share of pain, discomfort, fatigue and bouts of disorientation that have raised the bar on fear and anguish. And yet, there has always been an element of excitement and gratitude at the core because there is a reason we continue to endure.

As we’ve already learned during the dark ages, suffering can become a self-perpetuating cycle. Ascension is not self-perpetuating, it is expansion. In 3d linear time, things happen in a prescribed sequence. Now that we’ve gone beyond 3d, we’re living in a quantum world where everything is happening simultaneously. What that means for us is that alongside our aches and pains, self-love, compassion, peace and joy are equally present for us to draw upon. We get to choose. And the choices are infinite!!!

So. . . here we are Mission Gaia complete, sashaying around in our new LightBodies with new choices presenting themselves. What now?

When I sat down with my Soul team and asked what my new mission would be I was given one word 💕✨💕 JOY!! 💕✨💕

No instructions, no destination, no to do list, no goals. One simple word, JOY! I have already chosen to hang around to play with the unseen beings together with the seen, while maintaining a physical body. This has always been my dream and I’m already living it. Since Gaia has ascended and I’m hanging out with her, does that mean I’m an ascended master? I’ve no idea what an ascended master is supposed to look like or how to act. I’m told that’s exactly as it should be. A master creates in the moment. For me, that means creating with Joy because Joy is the hallmark for the New Earth.

Thus, I am fully committed to “Mission JOY” and the newly initiated “Tribe of JoyBeams”. If you are so inclined, I invite you to join the Tribe and accept Gaia’s invitation to live a life of JOY in whatever way you choose to do so to create anew and do it with JOY. Imagine a whole Tribe of JoyBeamers uplifting the world 💕✨💕

Are you a God or Goddess of Joy?

Joy Faerie

I find it interesting that there are no Goddesses, Gods or Angels of Joy. Over the years I’ve called upon Mother Mary, the goddess of love, to support me in opening my heart. I’ve called upon Quan Yin, the goddess of compassion to facilitate my non-judgement. I’ve called upon Kali-ma, the goddess of destruction to assist me in letting go of the old. I’ve called upon Ganesh to amplify my abundance. And so the list goes on. . .

I’ve spent years doing all the heavy lifting with the support of all these wonderful Goddesses to uplift and enlighten me. So when I wanted to call upon a Goddess of Joy, I could not find one. I scanned all the religions and did not find a single Goddess of Joy. When I googled it there were a few goddesses with Joy piggy backing some other attribute, but there are none that hold that distinction alone.

What does that tell us about humanity?
I guess humanity just isn’t ready to embrace Joy.

My typical posts on facebook are always inspiriting and uplifting. I do that for myself as much as my facebook family. I see it as a way of creating the world around me as I choose to experience it. Inspiriting and Uplifting. A few weeks ago in response to someone asking if I never feel bad, I posted something on facebook about having experienced a couple rocky weeks. People were all over it, liking it and commenting like crazy. Way more so than my uplifting posts.

Today I posted something about bringing JOY to the forefront and very few people responded. When I scanned my fb newsfeed, I realized most are still embroiled in the struggle. I understand that. I’ve been there. And it took a lot of heavy lifting to dig out.

What I’ve learned from my experience is this. There are multiple shovels with which to do the digging. One of them is JOY. Something we’ve overlooked for far too long. So long I think that shovel got buried in the debris.

Joy is a sacred medicine, just as Love is. A smile, a snippet of humor or a shout of celebration for the simplest things can heal as quickly, if not more so, than a pat on the back that says, “I’m sorry for your loss.” Both are equally important. And yet we’ve not not added the Joy shovel to our bag of healing tools. Why is that?

I could go into a whole dissertation of old programing about how we have to suffer our way to heaven. Or how we have to work hard to gain anything in life. How suffering makes us stronger. That’s not the point of what I’m trying to convey. 

I am simply here to remind us that JOY is a Powerful path to embodying our Divinity. I often see God smiling at me with Joy in his/her heart. Is that not a sacred gift? It’s not one I choose to ignore. In fact it’s one I choose to bring to the forefront. Which is why I was searching for a Goddess of Joy to buddy up with.

After all that searching, it was the Fae that drew my attention. That’s where I always find JOY!!! The kinfolk of nature know all about Joy. It’s all they know. Their music and dance, their playfulness, their magick, and their innocent wonderment. There’s a whole realm of Joy that humanity has yet to acknowledge. And they are holding the space for us to step into what we are calling new earth. But is it new, or are we just remembering the Joy of Life?

We have multiple deities for Love, Healing, Peace, Abundance, etc, etc., so….. why do we never hear about the Goddess or God of JOY? Why is no one talking about her or him? Perhaps that’s what’s being asked of us, to be the God/Goddesses of JOY incarnate!

It’s time we bring JOY to the forefront and I’m blazing the trail. . .
I’ve just donned my Crown of Joy
How about you?

Just think about it…
As we each don our Crowns of Joy, for the very first time on planet earth we will have Gods and Goddesses of Joy¸¸.•*¨*☆

Celebrating Mary Magdalyn, Apostle to the Apostles

Yeshua Magdalyn cropped

Today we celebrate the Feast of Mary Magdalyn, Saint Mary Magdalyn, the Apostle’s Apostle, who has finally been honored for her rightful place by Pope Francis: Mary Magdalene – ‘Apostle to the Apostles’ – gets upgraded feast day

The veils of christianity are finally being pulled back to reveal the truth of who she was, not only in her time but in ours as well, as a powerful woman, an educated woman, one equal in spiritual understanding and training to partner with Jesus. For Magdalyn continues to walk with us on our journey encouraging the Divine Feminine within each of us to step forward with open hearts to heal a world that needs our Love and Compassion.

Mary Magdalyn, who walked hand in hand with Yeshua as an equal partner, teacher and Christed being, was initiated in the temples of Egypt along with Yeshua. She walked the earth as a High Priestess of Isis, the Divine embodiment of Wisdom and practiced the alchemy of Love.

Magdalyn invites us to see with new eyes and hear with new ears. If you have never read the Gospel of Mary, I encourage you to do so. Here you will find the pure teachings of Magdalyn shared by Yeshua during their lifetime together as the Way of Love.  (Gospel of Mary of Magdala Text from the Papyrus Berolinensis)

I encourage you, whether you be male or female, to open your heart to the Magdalyn within you. She who is the living example of grace, beauty, and inner strength. She who has the courage to change the world with her compassion and forgiveness rather than fighting against those around her. She who continues her ministry of Love despite what other may think of her or how they treat her. She who carries enough Peace in her heart to soothe that which distresses us. She who blesses us with Divine Grace.

This has been a remarkable year for humanity as women are stepping into our rightful places, just as Magdalyn did in her time. We are all being invited to wear the Crown of Christ by Yeshua and Magdalyn who planted the seeds for all of humanity to remember the truth of Who We Are as Sovereign beings. Today as we celebrate Magdalyn, She steps forth to celebrate ALL of us as we feast together on Divine Love.

Humanity’s Gift to the Universe

05615826ff64e5719c30c181514e04a52

This morning I awoke in a new time/space reality. I could feel it before I opened my eyes. For a while I lingered here, feeling into it, savoring it, least it disappear once I set my feet on the ground. Everything feels much clearer with a silky quality to it. The rubble of thoughts are held at bay, or have they disappeared altogether. Perhaps some of both. In their place is a sweet contentment.

When I open my eyes the old world feels dense in comparison, not as thick and heavy as the discrepancy between dreamtime and awake time as I used to feel. Simply more dense than where I am now. The tonal qualities I’m hearing are very different than I’m accustomed. It’s not unusual for me to hear tones. However, at the moment it sounds like a retuning, much like when I retune my harp strings, until each note settles into its new vibration.

When I look around the room my eyes, and consciousness, are acting much like a camera. They telephoto in on something, such as a bouquet of flowers and see all the layers and components of it as long as I’m focused on it. I see/feel the vibration/life of each flower, the color, scent, vibrancy, its song, potentials of its growth, how it unfolded (the past/present in the now). I feel the interaction and appreciation of one flower in the bouquet to another. When I withdraw my attention from it, I can tell I’ve changed what I was focused upon simply by my having given it my attention. In this case it was my appreciation and wonderment. As an experiment I changed my feelings to ho-hum and it diminished, still there but not as palpable.

Then I shifted my attention to the nature outside my window. I’m able to observe the tree’s reaction to the first rays of the golden sun. I’m experiencing how the elementals interact, how they find a new balance with each other moment by moment. No wonder I always find myself staring out into nature. Look at what I’ve been comprehending without even know it. I’ve always known nature has much to teach us, but I did not realize the teaching was this subtle. The longer I observe the more my heart is opening. I can feel the effect we (nature and I) have on each other. It is not just my observation that changes the energy, I am also being changed. This is done simply by my conscious observation of it. I can actually feel the vibration changing. This brings tears to my eyes. This feels like our Home vibration with an expanded consciousness/understanding we never had available to us until now.

It’s important to be conscious of where I place my attention or this could become overwhelming. This is taking a unique quality of concentration at the moment to hone this skill. I’m told the more I practice this and the more conscious I am with it, the more quickly this will become my norm. This is a marvelous manifestation refinement simply because we can see it in action and make adjustments in the moment.

I find this interesting because in 3d we originally slowed the vibration down so we could understand how things manifest. Now that we’ve done that, as everything speeds back up we’re able to realize what we’re experiencing with new awareness. When the vibration was slow our consciousness was so slow we were not able to realize it. It was our experience of it in conjunction with our expanded consciousness that has now given us that ability. An ability we could not have had if we had not lived in the density. I have a new appreciation for 3d/density. And I can see how easily we got stuck in it. I also see how the planet/humanity is being effected by the floods of photons we’re experiencing right now as our solar system is traveling through new areas of the universe, without which I don’t think we would have been capable of awakening. It is this Light and the amplification of Love by humans like you and I that has made this possible. How amazing as I sit here watching it AND changing it by my simple awareness of it. I have tears flowing in appreciation with intense waves of gratitude flowing simultaneously between me and the universe. This is Bliss.

I now understand that if I do nothing more that stare out into the forest with nothing more than appreciation for what is, no matter what that might be, I am changing the world, changing the universe. God created us in his/her image to know itself. Yes indeedy !!!

This is the Self realization we’ve all been seeking, that psychology nor science will never attain through the mind. It is the purity of nature and our ability to be fully human that holds all the cards in this game called Life. It is our willingness to go deep and expand simultaneously that expands consciousness.

We are the Master Creators of this Universe! And we’re doing it in all humbleness from our heart’s desire to become more, experience more and know more of ourselves in each present moment, just as God created us as him/her self. Manipulation and control has no place in the New Earth. They were 3d concepts we utilized as learning tools which we can now put to rest.

We have graduated to a new way of BEing with Life. We are creating anew. Our expanded consciousness is creating from the heart with the pulse of Love. We have far exceeded our expectations when we first set out on this journey eons ago. Look how far we’ve come! And look where we stand now as Master Creators embarking upon a New Age of infinite Well-Being, prepared to thrive in ways we never thought possible, ready to create beyond our wildest dreams.

No wonder humanity is being held in rapture by beings from all over the Universe!! Don’t take your humanity for granted it is the most Divine Gift ever created. YOU are that Gift!

Crazy Love

relationship published

Humans have been struggling with this thing we call love for eons of time, with broken hearts littering the very ground we walk upon. Some people simply walk away without looking back continuing a heartless life. Others stop, pick them up and attempt yet again to heal it before jumping back into the love arena because it’s so addictive. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it. So what’s a girl supposed to do?

Well this girl set out on a mission to dissect this thing we call love to get to the crux of this merry-go-round that continues to run out of steam as the music slows to an agonizing stop. I tried on a multitude of different love hats. There’s the religious hat, parental hat, the sibling hat, the friend hat and the most addictive one of all, the romantic hat. What did I discover after all that exploration? 

I realized that each of those hats were designed by someone other than me and none of them fit me. They all came with scripts and programs written by our parents, religion, friends, neighbors and the media. Each time I donned one of those hats I reacted from the wounded place within me adding to the script until it became so convoluted it was too heavy laden to wear anymore. I experienced all forms of crazy love, the kind of love that requires you to love me before I can love you. After your heart’s been broken once, twice, three times. . . who wants to risk it all again.

I do!!! I do!!!! Crazy me!

Thus I took all those hats and tossed them out. Where did that leave me?

It left me with a bare naked head. There was nothing to hold all those crazy words rattling around in my head anymore. I was fully exposed without any protection. Ha!! That my friends held the answer I’d been looking for.

Once you have the courage to stand naked without any protection, it allows your heart to fully open and the walls come tumbling down. You see, it’s constantly scaling those walls that inflicts all the scraps and bruises upon your heart. And we’ve been scaling the walls of the heart for eons of time. We’ve been scaling our own walls from the inside out trying to escape the pain. . . and we’ve been attempting to scale other people’s walls to enter their heart space. No wonder we’re so beat up, afraid to go the full distance to dive into the depth of of love. Not so afraid that we will no longer dabble in love. We’re just too afraid to make a commitment to love.    

When I finally decided that I wanted to love and be loved more than anything else, I made a total commitment to love. I surrendered to love. Yup that’s what it took, an absolute surrender.     

What I finally discovered is Divine Love. I invite you to pause here, take a deep breath and breathe it in with me. . . pure Divine Love. That felt so good, let’s do it again, and again. That my beloveds is the very air we breath all the time. We’ve just forgotten to let it in.

So what is Divine Love?

Divine Love is what some might call unconditional. But even that word creates a stumbling block because we’ve only ever known conditional love. Divine Love is what your GodSelf feels for you. Much like the first time you lay eyes on your precious child. In that moment you are experiencing Divine Love. A Love that is pure and untainted.

Divine Love doesn’t have expectations, hold grudges, attempt to fix or control other people. Divine Love is judgment free because your GodSelf understands that EVERYTHING is happening in your life to open your heart more fully to more Love. And it’s an ongoing process, continually learning, experiencing and expressing more Love. How awesome is that!!! Who doesn’t want more Love!

So, how do you get there?

By loving your self, your scraped and wounded self, moment by moment, just like you would a precious child that’s calling out for your love. You see, it’s not the other person that’s hurting you. You are hurting yourself every time you judge yourself or another because your heart aches every time you do. It’s not in your place to change another person for each is on their own journey and that needs to be honored. It’s your job to love your self. And when you do, Divine Love will begin to trickle through the cracks in your heart to erode the walls from the inside out, until one day the dam will break and Love will flow freely. Once that happens there is no turning back because your soul will not allow it.

Now that you know what it is and you’re learning to fully breathe again, it’s time to practice Divine Love in your daily life. Love is ever flowing. You can ignore it for awhile but before long it will envelop you. It will flow through your veins like an elixir and you won’t want to ignore it anymore. Meanwhile some of the old programs and habits are floating around like debris in a murky pond. If you continue surrendering to Love, grace will effortlessly heal and dissolve them for you without having to dissect or process them.

Here’s where it gets tricky. Not everyone is living in the flow of Divine Love and there are still arrows flying around out there in the world. What to do? Dodge them as best you can without engaging. The only reason you recognize them is because they are triggering something inside of you that has not yet been fully loved by you. Something that’s based on old stories that aren’t even yours.  It’s what some call pushing our buttons. When a button is pushed, it’s our button, not anyone else’s. It can only be inactivated by taking responsibility for loving our selves, rather than reacting to the personal pain someone else is hurling at us. When we can see their pain for what it is, their lack of love, then our love and compassion can flow more freely than ever before.

Once we’ve experienced Divine Love, we’re no longer insecure about love because we’re not dependent upon anyone else for love. We realize we’ve got more than enough Love for all of us, effortlessly sharing it with everyone because it becomes who we are, not what we do.

So I’m back on the merry-go-round again. This time it’s the carousel of Divine Love where the music never stops. Each act of Love that I experience adds more harmony to the orchestration. The stallion I’m riding goes up and down, up and down. It never stops. I continue loving fully completely openly and freely. And that my friends is the end of crazy love. Instead I am crazy in Love, Divine Love.

Whispers of the Soul

10479070_961716127181442_4509827346812910880_n

Before I open my eyes in the morn,
my Soul whispers. . .
breathe with me Beloved
savor this moment
where you and I
are intimate partners.

Do not allow your mind
to pull you away from me
with its illusive grip
of insignificant distractions.

Savor this moment
and the next
and the next
stringing them together
like a strand of elegant pearls.

Take me into your day
allowing the dance between us
to continue and expand
with each and every breath.

Savor the moment
savor the conscious breath of life
savor the music of your heart
saver each and every step
as we dance our way
through the day
hand in hand
with the Divine flow of Life.

Letting go of “Letting go”

07dbbb01795c912e5caddaff4ff7e9908

Today is the Scorpio Full Moon and my facebook newsfeed is rampant with posts advising us to go into the mysterious darkness of Scorpio and “let go” of all those shadows that have been lurking in our subconscious.

This emphasis on “letting go” has been going on for some time as we’re letting go of the old and opening to the new. Any transition requires this of us, whether it be a transition from one home to another, one relationship to another, one job to another, or one state of consciousness to another. This is happening personally and collectively. Humanity is in the midst of one of the biggest transitions of all time as is demonstrated by the collapse of the old establishment. Thus there is a lot to let go of.

However I feel like we’re caught in a bit of a stutter here… let go… let go… let go… let go…. let go. . . . . .

What I’m feeling with this Full Moon is the need to let go of “letting go”, and finally, finally, finally move on.

WE are Master Creators. We are here to birth the new and we can’t do that when all of our focus is on the past, on letting go. It’s time to look forward and birth something new!!!

The Scorpio full moon is the moon of the Black Madonna the sacred womb of all creation filled with Love and Light illuminating our hidden desires. See what happens when you refocus your attention to the seeds of desire that are sprouting within you rather than continuing to dig into that which has now become compost.

Birthing is an inside job. And thus it is for all Master Creators. Our desires arise from within and are nurtured from within the mysterious darkness of the womb drawing everything it needs to manifest.

Master Creators, go within, allow your secret dreams and desires to become illuminated via the Light of the Black Madonna full moon. Surrender to her fertile womb of creation. Let go of the “letting go” knowing you have done your clearing work and trust the process to allow your boldest desires to fully manifest with ease and grace.
