Distilling our Human Experiences into Soul Wisdom

JosephineWall

As I was falling asleep a few nights ago I recall feeling like I was the LA freeway with a multitude of timelines moving through me, much like all the cramped lanes of traffic with cars jutting from one lane to another. I wasn’t aware of the specifics of these timelines, simply aware that they existed within me. I was sensing the merging of timelines, much as the freeway going through the city eventually merges from the congestion of multiple lanes to only one lane the farther it gets from the city. I knew there was nothing I need do as I slipped into dreamtime.

As I moved through the following days memories of certain periods of my life began resurfacing. This happened often enough that I put aside whatever I was doing and sat down to be fully present with each of these memories as the observer without engaging. Whenever I did this there was a freeze frame, of sorts, and I was able to observe the layers of what I had experienced at that particular time. To my surprise, it was NOT what I thought had happened. What I remembered was only a tiny aspect of the multifaceted event that had taken place.

One of the most important things I’ve learned since my spiritual awakening many years ago is the mind’s propensity to judge and label things before putting them in linear order based on its past experience. Whereas the Soul lives in the present with an expanded nonjudgemental perspective. When I surrender to the Soul, my human self has access to this expanded perspective. Taking it one step further, when I befriend and trust the orchestration of my Soul, the process of living as a Soul in a human body becomes one of ease and grace.

Therefore, as I was experiencing these memories I asked my Soul, “What is the purpose of my remembering so much of my past right now?” I have a very intimate relationship with my Soul and I often get direct answers from my inner voice or via my journaling. Other times these answers surface in dreamtime while free of the constructs of the mind. This time I got the answer in a book I was guided to read.

While reading the book “Act of Consciousness” by Adamus Saint-Germain through Geoffrey & Linda Hoppe, I came upon a passage that clarified things for me. “The divine distills every experience into wisdom.” Taking the liberty to paraphrase it further: The soul wants to experience just for the sake of experiencing. It doesn’t need to validate itself for it is already complete in the knowing that it exists. The soul takes everything the human experiences, distills it into its pure wisdom, drinks that in and falls more deeply in love with itself, again and again and again with every new experience.

It became clear to me that as a conscious multidimensional observer I am currently remembering my past in the same way my Soul experiences life. I am being blessed to experience all of these timelines/stories running through me while simultaneously being distilled into their wisdom. I get to choose if I would like to continue each timeline with my new judgment-free perception, or if its purpose is complete and ready to be dissolved.

Some of these timelines which I thought had been resolved occasionally circled back around into my consciousness. That’s because timelines are not as linear as we think. Just like the cars that jut back and forth between lanes on the freeway, there are aspects of ourselves living in multiple timelines that need to unravel from one before they can be released from another. This is THE lifetime in which we are clearing and distilling ALL timelines as we transcend our human mind to expand into our multidimensional Self Knowing. This is a sacred gift from our Soul that we’re not usually conscious of until after our human death.

However, this is a gift that is ever present and happening behind the scenes for all of us AND we have the ability to access and utilize it while still alive in these human bodies. All it takes is surrendering our human mental perspective to that of the Soul’s. Sounds simple, eh? It is. True spiritually is always simple.

It is only the mind that turns spirituality into arduous tasks such as healing wounds, shadow work, affirmations, incantations, etc, etc. . . for fear of losing its self importance. Although our mind may think it’s in control, it is short lived. Perhaps that’s why it fights so hard for self validation. What the mind does not realize is that it’s being offered a promotion, rather than a death threat. Even most of what we call our spiritual practices are being run by the mind. Therefore, we are awakening and communing with our Soul in altered states of dreamtime, meditation, napping, nature and things such as these, until we break free of the constructs of the mind to consciously realize and embody our Divinity.

The Soul is eternal, free of judgment, without any need of validation. When we surrender to our Soul we know we are always on the right path, our own unique path of Enlightenment. Notice I said, “path OF Enlightenment” not “path TO Enlightenment” for enlightenment is not a destination, it is our infinite growth and expansion. According to the Soul we can’t get it wrong because it’s all human experience being distilled into pure wisdom. We are each experiencing life according to our Soul’s journey. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, for each is on their own Soul journey to be honored just as we honor ours.

The past few mornings I’ve awakened with a sweet smile on my face, feeling the innate pleasure my Soul feels as the first rays of dawn glisten across the forest, listening to the harmonies of birdsong, enjoying the fresh morning breeze across my face while still snuggled under my warm duvet. Soul embodiment allows the Soul to feel and experience as the human, and the human has the gift of the Soul’s distilled wisdom which we call Self Knowing. This might be what some call “Seeing through the eyes of the Soul”. For me, it is living heaven on earth, enjoying physicality with the gift of the totality of my Soul’s wisdom distilled from my human experiences which I now realize are all sacred.

~ Note:
A little over a year ago I wrote an article called Letting Go of “Letting Go” . I now realize that was a precursor for what I am experiencing today. If what you’re reading doesn’t quite resonate with you perhaps reading that article can offer you some groundwork. Everything I write is in the moment. As I grow and expand, so does my awareness. It is not meant to be written in stone, nor bound in a text. It is simply my personal Soul’s journey being shared for those who may resonate with it. We each have our own Soul journey, our own perceptions, and our own distilled wisdom while experiencing life in our own personal ways. May your heart always be open to hear the voice of your Soul.

The Love Affair of the Soul and the Human

Tree Spirits by Liza Paizis

Last year at this time I had one of the most lucid and profound dreams I’ve ever experienced. During this dream, a former lover from many years ago was walking toward me. I could feel an abundance of love coming from him. The closer he got to me the more love I was feeling. At some point I realized this love was not coming from him. He was simply the reflection of my love for my self. As he continued walking toward me this love became so overwhelming fear burst forth from within me. Fear that it would overpower and kill me. I wanted to scream out, “Stop! I can’t take anymore.” But the words would not come. From somewhere beyond this fear I knew I needed to simply allow it to engulf me. The only thing I could do was surrender to this overwhelming, overpowering destructive force of love. Once I released all resistance, I did indeed die.

I melted into a puddle on the floor. He who had appeared as my old lover disappeared. I was naked and alone in an empty abyss. The old me had died. Everything that was not of love had been obliterated and died along with me.

And then little pin points of light began to appear all around me, creating a mandala of sorts. The pattens kept changing, much like a kaleidoscope. Some of these pieces were glowing from within. Others were rather dense and murky, gaining clarity as they were drawn toward me from out of the darkness. I observed with fascination as this process continued, until I realized these were all aspects of me, pieces of me. Many of them had been hidden in the shadows, tossed away by my prior judgements. Others had been locked within walls that were now instantaneously melting from the Love radiating from within me. I watched as all of me, all of my aspects gathered together into wholeness once again dancing in beautiful patterns of radiant color and light. At this point I fell into a very deep sleep and slept for many hours.

When I finally awoke, life looked and felt very different to me. This was not a dream. This was the realization of my Self as the purity of Divine Love and the acceptance of all of Who I Am, as my Soul knows me to be. I could not have orchestrated or thought this into being with my mind, even from within a meditative state. I could only do this from an expanded state of consciousness. Therefore my Soul gifted me with this lucid dream. The gift of knowing that I Am Love and all the aspects of me are loved and honored without any judgement. This knowing that it’s safe for All of me to come home, to share the experiences that life has offered me, all the stories, all the pain, all the joys. Each one a facet of the Love and radiance of Who I Am.

Now here I am a year later and what a year it has been!!!
All these pesky aspects that have been awakened or released from their walled in prisons have been elbowing their way into my heart to be enveloped in Love. Some of them have been an absolute joy to embrace. Others, I cringe to say, have pulled me into their own darkness before I was able to see clearly by the spark of Love that was always present. The gift of Divine Love is that I have surrendered the fight. My arms are always wide open no matter what presents, or how it presents. Love always knows what to do. Therefore I simply surrender it all to Love and allow it to sort itself out without the need to defend or interfere.

This has been a time for diving deeply into realizing more of my Self and integrating this new expanded awareness. Nothing else matters to me anymore. It’s as if it doesn’t exist. A few days ago I tried reading a story someone wrote about her spiritual journey. In the past this would have been very engaging to me but it now feels very old and boring. That’s how my old stories feel to me as well. I have no interest in them or in the mainstream world that is no longer my reality.

A few days ago I asked myself: What do I want to do now that I have this new awareness? What reality do I choose to create? Today this question feels unimportant to me. It feels like it was coming from my human restlessness. How much of that restlessness is the human’s need to feel worthy of itself? My current perception of Love has quelled that question. Quite frankly I have no desire to “do” anything. I am simply basking in this new realization of who I Am. I don’t know what my life will look like from a human perspective and I feel no hurry to take any action in that direction yet. 

This morning feels very quiet, free of any external noise, free of any thoughts. I’m feeling the deep contentment of “I Exist, I Am, I Am Here.” I’m sensing my human aspects and my Soul embracing this new passion with and for each other. I feel no desire to take any action right now, no desire to “do” anything. Instead, I’m feeling drawn to savor this relationship, to go more deeply into this passion and expand upon it.

While reading the book “Act of Consciousness” by Adamus Saint-Germain through Geoffrey & Linda Hoppe, I came upon a passage that clarified things for me. “The divine distills every experience into wisdom.” Taking the liberty to paraphrase it further: The soul wants to experience just for the sake of experiencing. It doesn’t need to validate itself for it is already complete in the knowing that it exists. The soul takes everything the human experiences, distills it into its pure wisdom, drinks that in and falls more deeply in love with itself, again and again and again with every new experience.

Last year at this time when I had what I call my Enlightenment Dream, I realized “I Am Love.” I thought that was the ultimate sense of loving one’s self. Indeed, that was true at the time and. . . I have continued loving my self more and more and more. This is an ongoing expansion of Love, a love affair between the human and the Soul. This is the true relationship I have always been searching for.

I sometimes think I would like a partner. Then I realize I really don’t want to live with anyone else right now. I thought I did, but that was my old dream of home and family which I’ve already experienced in this lifetime. My ultimate desire is a relationship with my Self. I was thinking how nice it would be to share my experiences with someone or to offer my love through my actions with another.

In many ways I am already doing this. Isn’t that what my daily journaling is? Conversations with my Soul. Conversations with my I Am. Conversations with the different aspects of my Self, the aspects I have created to experience more of who I Am. What I am doing now is embracing all of my self into wholeness once again, consciously distilling all the stories into their wisdom and loving my self again and again and again.

Indeed, the Soul has already done this. But my human self has only recently become aware of this. Through the grace of my Soul, there is nothing that needs to be done, no searching, no processing. Simply allowing these aspects to present themselves, to come out of the human shadows to be loved and accepted, just as the Soul has already done. Like the prodigal’s daughter returning home, this is a sweet experience. It need not be difficult. It need not take any effort. I realize, the more I sit quietly gazing out into nature, allowing the space for this to happen, the more effortless it becomes. Ease and Grace has become my way of being and Love is Who I Am.

After so much struggle in my life, how simple and easy this feels to me now. How satisfying. How fulfilling. How empty I feel of the stories and the human yearnings. And how full I feel of my Self. Enlightened Embodiment. This is what it is. Embodying All of Who I Am, here and now in this physical body. Human and Divine in sweet delicious consciousness.

The Joy of Death

Art by Jan Burgess

While rooting around looking for something in one of my desk drawers, I came across a folder of accumulated notes. I don’t remember what I was looking for. It was the result of the looking that struck my fancy.

I opened the folder and began shuffling through the bits and pieces of paper. Some were paper clipped together, others were stuck in there haphazardly, without any specific order. The more I read, the more I realized they were notes from my past life.

I say past life because nothing I read pertained to life as I am now living. Most were spiritual notes, affirmations or bits of journaling. There were a few sketchy business plans. And the notes from a teleconference I had taken. This folder held the notes of where I’ve come from, my past life while still living in this physical body.

A huge grin spread across my face with the realization that I am no longer living a life that needs lists, notes, affirmations and business plans. That was my past life. In my current life I am living in the moment. I Am the creator of this life rather than the victim of it. In this life I am no longer a spiritual seeker, for I am aligned with Source. In this life I trust my Inner Guidance without the need to search for opinions from others. In this life I am a Sovereign being making heart choices free of any perceived obligations. In this life I realize energy is in service to me, I am no longer attempting to control it or direct it, I can simply choose it.

I didn’t need to read every piece of paper, for I knew there was nothing of value in this folder anymore. Instead I created a small fire pit with some kindling out in my garden. One by one I fed the bits and pieces from that lifetime into the fire. Once the last spark was gone I covered it with dirt and returned it to the earth. From earth you are born, to earth you return.

I then went back inside and opened my clothes closet. There hung the costumes of a persona that no longer exists. These were all bagged up and carried out to the charity shop. A bathroom drawer with makeup that hasn’t been touched in years all cleared out, thrown into the trash. Last of all I returned to my desk and filled the trash can with old files that belonged to she who has passed on. She who knows who She is without the need for diplomas, certificates, records and validation.

Death can be a sweet thing when we realize it doesn’t really exist. We do not die, we simply transform, evolve and continue to expand our consciousness. How many past lives have I already lived in this one? Too many to count. The difference is that I was never conscious of dying to the old and transforming into the new. This time I Am fully conscious of putting a past life to rest with ease and grace. The best part about this was that none of this was on my “to do” list. I did not angst over clearing out my closet or my desk drawers. When it was time I simply stepped out of one life into another and released the old manifestations thereof. There was no struggle. There was no mourning. It was an act of Joy!

Ascension’s trek up Golgotha

cebarre-poweroflove-left

Each and every foot step of our journey to ascension has brought us closer to the crest of Golgotha where Yeshua was crucified and arose three days later as the resurrected Christ.

Golgotha, translated as “place of the skull”, is where we are being asked to surrender our human mind to that of our Christ Consciousness. This is not a crucifixion as in ancient times. For our mind has an honored place in our enlightenment. However, with ascension the mind is no longer the one in control. Instead it is being called into service to our Christ Consciousness.

This trek up the hill of Golgotha has been a very long journey, carrying the burden of the cross of humanity upon our backs over many lifetimes. Each and every step has required the shedding of another layer of who we thought we were, bringing us ever closer to our enlightenment.

Some of us are now standing on the crest of Golgotha for whom the journey has come to an end. We have arrived. Having laid our heavy burdens down, we stand upon the crown of the skull looking out across the horizon of a new landscape as the Christed Ones.

There are many who have not yet begun the trek up Golgotha, perhaps they never will. And there are those who are still in the process of climbing. Those of us who now stand tall upon the crest of the mountain are the way showers who have forged the footsteps that so many are now stepping into on their personal journey. It is not up to us to pick up their crosses and carry them. For each soul has its own unique purpose here on earth to be honored as sacred.

This is it, Beloveds! 
As we gaze across the horizon we realize the arduous part of our journey has reached its culmination. It’s time to massage our blistered feet and dust off our time worn clothes. We have been transformed. As Christed beings having endured the alchemical process of becoming a LightBody in physical form, we are no longer dependent upon outside resources to survive. As divine humans the eternal Source flows thorough our veins as sovereign beings.

What does this mean for us now?
Our roles have changed. No longer absorbed in the process of ascension, we are free to pursue that which makes our hearts sing as the creators of a New Earth. The innate knowing of who we truly are has been the passion that has continued to carry us through all the tribulations of many lifetimes. This passion to live life fully as Christed beings has finally bubbled to the surface where it awaits our command.

We are as children with a whole new multidimensional playground with which to play and create. Our human mind has been freed of old constructs and there are no limitations to what we can create. New worlds are being birthed via our infinite imagination. And when the others reach the top, in their own divine timing, we will have created a most beautiful place to land with exquisite vistas in all directions with an open hearted invitation to join us.

Multi-dimensional Resolution

multi

Years ago my daughter and I were deciding where to meet for breakfast. After offering several choices, she said, “Mom, people don’t like to have so many choices. It confuses them. They like to choose between A or B. That’s enough.” At the time, I thought, “Oh how strange. Why not have lots of choices?”

Looking back on it I realize I’ve always been a multidimensional being, experiencing multiple choices rather than living within the limited constructs of duality’s either/or. I’ve never perceived life choices as right or wrong. I’ve always branched out to consider…. if this isn’t working for me, how about trying something different? From my perspective, there are always more choices.

Somewhere along the line, I realized she’s right. Too many choices often confuse people. The human mind will instantaneously engage each choice in a separate gerbil wheel without the ability to connect them or settle upon one in particular, thus creating a three ring circus within themselves without resolution. Humans are accustomed to living concrete lives with one right answer, one right belief or one right approach. Everything else is considered wrong. But I have to ask, “Right for who?” What’s right for you may not be right for me. That’s when my mind jumps to choice C, perhaps a compromise or something completely out of the box.

Although I have been living multidimensionally to a large degree, I have also been living linearly. I usually consider the multiple choices and put them in a linear sequence. Although that has been working well for me most of my life, something has changed. We are no longer living in the energies of a 3d linear duality. Planet earth has moved into a new space in the universe where the foundational energies have expanded into a quantum field of reality. Linear time/space is no longer being supported in the way it had been.

What’s Different?
Instead of stacking things in a linear sequence, I realize I am the center of my energy field with infinite potentials floating around me. Once I make a choice, all the resonating potentials and supportive energies gravitate toward that particular choice like a magnet. Voila! All is in divine order and I simply need to be present in the here and now to step into it.

Unless . . .
the mind short-circuits it by attempting to make sense of it all. The human mind, with probability as the operative, has never been programed to function efficiently in a quantum field of infinite possibilities rather than a predetermined probability.

When I first became conscious of living in the quantum field, my mind was so confused I lost my ability to make any choices. I was no longer logged into the rational mind, nor was I proficient at “allowing” and “trusting” the gravity of my own innate knowing. Therefore I muddled both processes which left me in no man’s land. During this period of time I have never felt so lost in the drift of life and yet life continued to carry me forward of its own accord.

Finally . . .
by practicing a newly minted perception, I’m able to catch myself and withdraw whenever something’s not working. That brief pause is enough to break my mind free of the old programing, giving it ample space for my innate gravity to draw what it needs to me. Sometimes a pause with a deep breath is enough. Other times I need to divert my attention to something that feeds my soul, like a little sky gazing or a walk in nature, before I return to the original project having given it ample space to reorganize itself. There’s a reason we call this being “spacey”, because our mind goes blank, making space for more of who we are to be present. When I sit gazing into nature, it often feels like there’s another being inside me enjoying the sensuality of living on this planet. This is my multidimensional creator being, present with me in the here and now.

Our whole world is a changin’. . .
The frequency of our planet has expanded to include new bandwidths. We are becoming multi-dimensional humans, no longer living as solo instruments. We’re being introduced to a whole orchestra of percussion, woodwinds, strings, and horns. We are becoming the conductors of infinite choices. At times we may feel unprepared for this shift in consciousness,confused by so many choices or feeling like victims without any choices at all. And yet, at the very core of each of us, there is an innate harmony that brings it all to resolution if we allow it to find it’s own way rather than force our human mental agendas upon it. There is new music in the omniverse and we are the expressions of it.

This, my friends, is what we’ve always called magic or miracles. When in reality, this is the organic way of life throughout the omniverse. We’ve just gotten a little side tracked along our limited path of humanness. As we realign with the core of our divinity, infinite new creative potentials continually appear. The more our consciousness expands the more multi-dimensional resolution, magic and miracles will abound!!!

Retracting the Veils of Avalon

avalon-boat

Our entire solar system has moved into a new mystical space in the omniverse. I call it mystical because the old logical patterns of life are no longer sustainable and the new way of being often feels unreal or mystical to us. And yet, this new way of being is our innate way of being.

Because the old world structures are breaking down with such rapidity humanity has become caught in the chaos as they attempt to hold onto the old way of being. It has has become increasingly difficult for those of us who are empathetic and sensitive to energies to live in this world. As a result many of us have withdrawn from the mainstream into our inner sanctum to live a life that’s more aligned with who we know ourselves to be.

For many spiritual people our inner sanctum can be likened to Avalon, our personal place of mysticism, protected from the outer world. The more time we spend here, the more mystical it becomes and the more disjointed the mainstream feels to us.

These are some of the things I’m experiencing in my Inner Isle of Avalon:

~ As the gateway between worlds, it allows me to consciously choose from a multitude of potentials with divine timing rather than linear progression.

~ Time is no longer linear, it responds to my present way of being. If I feel crunched for time because I’m in my logical mind attempting to reconcile the past with the future, time speeds up. If I’m in the present moment, time becomes irrelevant.

~ Dreamtime has become very lucid and interactive, blending into my everyday life.

~ Logic has its place but it’s no longer running the show. The magick and wisdom of Merlin is guiding my every moment as long as I’m not distracted and I allow it to be so.

~ Avalon is the stronghold of the Elementals and the Fae… teaching me how to live, flow and create “with” nature. Joy and playfulness is prevalent here because life was never meant to be hard. Life is meant to be lived in beauty, song and dance.

~ In this sanctuary of the feminine, as the guardian of the sacred grail of pure love compassion and forgiveness, the alchemy of Love is ever present.

~ As the birthplace of the Knights of the Roundtable, established to govern “with” the people, Avalon holds the blueprint for right governance based on principles of mutual respect, equal representation and the blending of magical and sacred values with the secular in a happy, harmonious and productive marriage of heaven and earth.

avalon-mists~ In Celtic lore, Avalon is the entrance to the Underworld where hidden realities become visible. The Sword of Excalibur cuts through to the eternal Truth, thus we are remembering our ancient Knowing embodied within our cells and the crystalline core of Gaia. We all have the opportunity to withdraw the Sword of Excalibur and cut through the mists of amnesia. All it takes is a pure heart.

Our inner Sanctuary of Avalon is the embodiment of the Vesica Pisces, with Avalon acting as the integration of the two overlapping circles of heaven and earth. By having a foot in both worlds, we have been co-creating new realities in conjunction with Gaia with the natural flow of the Laws of the Universe. When we venture out into the mainstream world our expanded energy field effects everything and everyone who comes in contact with us. In this way we are awakening humanity to a new way of life.

On the days when we’re feeling disconnected from reality, walking around in what feels like a fog, it’s because we’ve stepped out of the old matrix and have yet to acclimate to living full time in the new realities we’re creating. During these times the veils of Avalon are disengaging us from old patterning. It’s important to remain grounded in our inner sanctum and surrender to the infinite wisdom that is directing our every action.

At the moment the veils of Avalon are in service to us as we are co-creating a new reality for all of humanity to step into when they are ready to awaken. Know that we are approaching the time when the veils of Avalon will be permanently retracted and the revelations of a New Earth will be revealed to all. Until then trust and savor this sacred process for we will never come this way again. Engage in the magic that presents itself, for you are the Merlin of your own reality.

Moontime Dreaming

new-moon

In ancient times it was the custom during the new moon for women to step away from their duties as wife and mother to gather together in sacred circle. It was a time of nurturance for the women who were in daily service to their families and their community. More importantly the dark of the moon is a powerful dream time.

Woman is the Creatrix, she who dreams creation into being. It is the innate nature of women to connect with the moon. Even her bodily cycles flow with the moon, shedding the old lining of the womb with every new moon in preparation for the seeding of new birth, new dreams. 

Therefore women would gather together in sacred circle, dream together and share their dreams. As each women brings her own unique gifts to the circle, all of their dreams were woven together to offer wisdom and guidance to the tribe to continue growing and thriving during the upcoming month.

From the most ancient of times, women were honored for this role in the community. It was the men who put these dreams into action, building and providing for the community. But without the dreams their actions would become disjointed and unproductive, rather than flowing with the organic energies and cycles of nature. Together, the dreamers and the builders were able to create anew and thrive.

We have strayed so far away from the nature of these traditions. It is the rare individual that even bothers to gaze up at the moon, let alone commune with her energies. With the advent of birth control women’s cycles are no longer in synch with the moon. Lives have become so busy women no longer gather together. There is no sharing of dreams, personal or otherwise. Our communities are built and governed through the logic of the mind. Dreams have been relegated to hold little if any importance.

eclipse

In a few days the planet will be experiencing a solar eclipse, which is when the moon passes in front of the sun creating a shadow upon the sun. I’ve always called this the kissing of the sun and the moon, a sweet joining of the masculine and feminine. This particular eclipse takes place in the astrological sign of Pisces, which is the last sign of the zodiac, the alpha omega point. The point between the death of the old year and the birthing of a new year when the sun passes into Aries a fire sign of action. Pisces is a water sign, a feminine sign, the most potent time of the year for dreaming as we draw the old year to a close in preparation for birthing a whole new dream for the upcoming year.

I am always pulled by the new moon to set time aside, free of the rest of the world, to commune with her, to meditate with her, to dream with her. With this particular new moon not only am I pulled to do so, I feel compelled to do so!!!

This past year has been one of chaos and disruption for humanity. It is through my meditation and dreamtime that I have learned how to create my own reality free of these disruptions. My dreams have become the guiding force in my life, the flow of ease and grace that so many are seeking.

2016 was a year of completion, a 9 year in numerology. 2017 began a whole new cycle. Although many consider January as the beginning of the new year, our current gregorian calendar has thrown us out of sync with nature. In reality, the new year begins when the sun moves from Pisces into Aries with the March Equinox. Therefore this new moon is the last of the 9 year cycle before we initiate a new 9 year cycle.

What that means for us is that we get to birth a whole new dream for the next 9 year cycle. You get to birth a whole new dream for yourself with your own unique gifts and carry that out into your community. You get to create anew.

Whether you are male or female, you dream. You may not remember your dreams or they may not make sense to you because you’ve not paid them any attention. Perhaps its time to look upward. Perhaps its time to set aside the world that’s asunder for a few moments as you commune with the moon. Ask her to enter your dreamtime with her wisdom and guidance so freely given. She is here to birth a new world through your dreams. That is her role. Perhaps you’d like to call her forth as your co-creative partner.

This is a very potent new moon for you personally and for all of humanity. Take a few moments to look up, away from your daily distractions. As the sun kisses the moon during this solar eclipse there is a sweet co-creation taking place to birth anew. Allow your dreams to come into reality with the feminine energies of the moon activated by the masculine energies of the sun.

There are very few tribal women sitting in Moon Time ceremony anymore. However, the moon is unceasingly delivering your dreams to you awaiting your attention. Dream on BeLoveds, new worlds await.
