Kindling the Transmogrify of Christmas

0e7d4d67639f8128033ac26fca7849f4f

Something is stirring deep inside me. I can feel the cycle returning to its origins. I’m feeling the arousal of childhood Joy bubbling up within me.

As a child, I lay wide-eyed in bed with my whole body tingling in anticipation for Christmas morning. I had just attended the midnight candlelight service processing down the isle singing my favorite carols with the junior choir, mesmerized by the flutter of candles and the twinkling lights strung with evergreen swags along the balconies. Whenever I need to draw upon a “feel good” memory, this is it! A frozen moment in time that has carried me through many depressing situations.

As I got older Christmas began to loose its sparkle for me. By the time I was an adult it became a frenetic time of the year burdened by gift buying, decorating and obligatory parties all adding to an already busy schedule as a working wife and mother.

In recent years the commercialism has become almost belligerent, intruding upon our lives before we’ve even hung up our Halloween costumes at the end of October. We’re inundated with tv commercials. Shelves are stocked with holiday paraphernalia and stores are jammed with shoppers banging into each other with their overstuffed carts. For many of us it has gotten to the point that we just want to tuck in and totally withdraw from the holiday.

I lived in rural Spain for a few years where Christmas is free of commercialism. There is no gift giving. They celebrate Christmas Eve with huge family dinners eating, drinking and cajoling for hours before they attend midnight mass. Christmas day is spent quietly, perhaps with a neighborhood paseo. The most enjoyable part of this holiday for me was the week before Christmas meandering through the neighborhood markets strung with lights. Spiced cider warmed over blazing fires was shared along with good cheer as we all shopped for the delectable ingredients for our celebratory meals while musicians entertained us with their unique renditions of carols.

When I returned from Spain I could no longer participate in the American blasphemy. Thus I decided to scratch Christmas off my personal calendar. I fulfilled the few obligatories for my immediate family and tossed the rest.

However, as relieved as I was to put all that hubbub behind me, there was something missing. So I replaced Christmas with the pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice, which resonates much more fully with me.

But this year, something is stirring deep inside me. As I was contemplating Christmases past the cycle of memories goes something like this. Perhaps you can relate?

Childhood: tingling with delight and anticipation
Teenager: disappointment with the loss of illusion
Young adult: frenetic overwhelm in keeping up with the Jones’s
Mid adult: disgust with the commercialism
Mature adult: tuning out as much as possible

And now, in my crone years, I can feel the cycle returning to its origins. I’m feeling the arousal of childhood Joy bubbling up within me saying, “Hey what happened to that ‘feel good’ moment of lying in bed tingling with Joy savoring the candlelight and carols.”

That’s when I realized it’s time to transmogrify Christmas!!!

Funny how that word came to me. It’s not a word I’ve ever used before but it’s the perfect word for what I’m feeling. Transmogrify is defined as: transformation, especially in a surprising or magical manner. What I realized is that it’s time to bring the Joy and Magick back into Christmas!

Thus weeks before it was time to buy my Thanksgiving turkey, I gave my child free reign. I trotted on down to our local Ace Hardware store to buy a shopping bag full of faerie lights and candles. (Woe is me who would never think of doing any Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving) I then walked around my resident forest with a pair of clippers gathering boughs of evergreens and pinecones.

Now the fun begins!!! Swathing windowsills and table tops with greens, faerie lights and candles. . . bells on the door knobs…. all instigated by my fae friends while singing my favorite carols with spiced cider bubbling on the stove.

As I’m writing this, surrounded by my self created Christmas magick, I have a smirky childish grin on my face, delighted to have unfrozen that “feel good” moment in time that has aroused the transmogrify of Christmas present. That moment of wide-eyed wonderment with my whole body tingling in anticipation has been woven into my daily life that will carry way beyond Christmas. The funny thing is, all the commercialism that used to bother me is still present, but I no longer notice it because my focus is elsewhere. It’s no longer bah humbug, it’s Joy to the World!

I have transmogrified Christmas and carried it into my everyday life!! Perhaps you would like to do so too, for life is brimming over with Joy awaiting our recognition.. . and our world is calling out for us to share it with others.

At War with Love

08880bd24e994fee2f86e2f47dede7d71.jpg

Many years ago while I was facilitating a meditation circle Archangel Michael came to me and asked our circle to hold Saddam Hussein in Love. I was a bit hesitant to ask my circle to do this, but after a brief discussion we all agreed. It was an interesting experience for all of us since it was the first time we’d ever done anything like this. I could “see” Saddam fading in and out of the middle of our circle. Eventually he disappeared altogether. At the time I thought we had failed in our mission. But Michael assured me that our assistance was effective. 

Several days later Michael called upon me again while I was in personal meditation. He asked me to once again reach out and surround Saddam with Love. Once again Saddam continued to fade in and out as I surrounded him in Love. Michael asked me to do this on a daily basis which I did. After a few days Saddam no longer faded out. I could feel him sitting in the energy of Love, sometimes absorbing it, sometimes at war with it.

One day he turned to face me with tears in his eyes. I was able to see his anguish, how he had been abused as a very young child. He said, “Until you appeared, I have never known love.” From that point on his presence was very strong and he never fought the Love I was being shared. A few weeks later he once again spoke with me, this time I could feel that he was a changed man. As he told me his story, often sobbing between his words, immense healing was happening within this man who has been acting with such incredible cruelty toward humanity. By the end of his story he offered his gratitude for my perseverance in continuing to love him, despite his actions. He told me he was a changed man and intended to do what he could to correct his errors. He also told me that if he did a complete about face with his actions he would be persecuted by his followers and lose any opportunity to make amends. Instead he would need to be working behind the scenes as best he could. He asked me to continue to love him and support his new efforts, which I was very happy to do. The world will never know how he changed his life from that point forward. But I do. Although Saddam has forever been written down in history as a evil terrorist, he was one of my Master Teachers. He taught me how to Love beyond that which we see with our human eyes.

I share this story because there is so much hatred being perpetrated in the world. If humanity is going to survive it has to stop!! WE hold the keys to stop the “War with Love”. For those of us who have known love it makes no sense to be at war with love. But for those who have never been loved or have been persecuted in the name of love it has become a war with love.

We are ALL born as Love Incarnate. Every single one of us. Hatred is something that is taught. Cruelty is something that is taught. Love is our natural way of being and yet we seem to have to fight for it. How screwy is that!!!

The Love I am referring to is not a love we need to conjure up from inside ourselves. It’s not a love that requires deserving. That is human love. I am referring to Divine Love, Love incarnate, the Love we’re born as. If you’d like to learn more about this Love, read my prior post “Crazy Love” .

Right now we are watching Native American tribes in Prayer while being faced down by militia men with weapons. Militia who are being commanded by men who do not know love. Men, who like Saddam, may never have known love. Men who have been taught to use cruelty to demean and overpower other human beings in order to survive.

We are being given an opportunity to BE Love, to teach Love by being the example of Love. Even that may not be enough to penetrate the shields many have placed around themselves. What we can do is Pray Love, Pray Peace. We can do as I did many years ago with Saddam. We can unceasingly surround them in Love until they feel the presence of Love. If a man like Saddam can feel Love then presidents, governors, sheriffs and militia men can as well.

Our Native American tribes are teaching by example. I invite you to step up and join them by putting your own anger and indignation aside for the crimes being perpetrated against humanity. I invite you to find the peace within you, the Peace which passeth understanding. Together we can do this. Together we can eradicate the hatred, hostility and violence in the world. This is our opportunity to radiate our Love and Light to transform the world, one Loving moment at a time. For as the Lakota say. . . Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ. . . we are all related.

We are approaching the time of year when every major religion is preparing to celebrate their holy days of Love and Light. For many this is a time of gift giving. What better gift than to surround those in Love who are in most need of it, be it our family, friends, the militia, the homeless man on the street or our world leaders.

I acknowledge and honor the many who are already doing this. I bow to you in reverence for it is not always an easy thing to do amidst emotional turmoil. As a result of our altruism, I see our Tribe of Love and Light growing every day. Together we are making a profound difference in the world. A world that is weary of fighting this “War against Love”. A world that is learning to lay down weapons of destruction, be they guns or angry words. A world that is ready to pick up paint brushes of Love to create an enlivened vision for a New Earth that thrives on Love.

The Healing of Humanity amidst the Chaos

healing

Humanity has had enough!!! We are no longer willing to live in oppression. We are awakening to the greatness of who we are, no longer willing to accept anything less.

We are in epic times. Duality has served its purpose. It’s no longer about what is right and what is wrong, who is right and who is wrong. It’s about how great all of us are, each of us individually and as a collective group of human beings.

The Indigenous people realize this. They have taken a stand at Standing Rock, North Dakota. Although the outpicturing of this is about stopping a pipeline and protecting the water. There is something much grander happening here, something much deeper.

If you only look at the photos streaming through the media, on the surface it appears to be “us” versus “them”. The Natives against the pipeline. What I really see is a return to the greatness of who we are. The Native tribes have gathered in unity. Tribes that at one time were at war with each other. In the past they have been warriors, painted in war paint, protecting their own.

Today they have all come together, once again as warriors, protecting their own. This time what they are protecting is OUR own. That which belongs to all of us, that which we ALL need to survive. . . clean water, clean air, and the fertile earth to grow food.

They are no longer using weapons of destruction. They are using that which has always been at the base of their teachings. They are using Prayer. They are praying for ALL of us. They stand in prayer face to face with soldiers armed with violent weapons. They are praying for Peace.They are praying for the prosperity for all of us. For without the purity of our natural elements we all die.

The Indigenous people all over the world know this. They have preserved these teaching over the centuries, even as we’ve continued to push them off their land. They have come forth to share their teachings for the preservation of the land. More importantly for the preservation of humanity. You see, although the earth will survive no matter what we as humans do. Humanity will not survive if we continue to rape her of the natural elements that our physical bodies need in order to thrive and prosper.

Not only is this a time of awakening. This is a time of healing, for the earth and all of humanity. The indigenous tribes have come together healing their ancestral battles against one another. Healing their anger at the white man who has stripped them of their land and their dignity. And they have invited all of us to join them. In response 500 clergy members prayed along the banks of North Dakota’s Cannonball River with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation in an historic show of interfaith solidarity.  

We have entered the Age of Unity. That does not mean we become one homogenized society. It means we honor the uniqueness in each and every one of us. It means we heal all the ancestral wounds that have kept us from loving one another. It means we celebrate the greatness of humanity, the greatness of who we are. This is true in our personal lives as well as the collective humankind.

We have gone beyond the old world of duality. We will not survive long if we continue judging and pitting “us” against “them”. We can continue to war, fighting battles, protesting what’s wrong in the world, pointing fingers at who done what to who.

Or we can do as Michelle Obama says, “When others go low, we go high.” As the media continues to pit us against one another, the Indigenous people all around the world are rising up in prayer with forgiveness and peace in their hearts. Will you join them?

Are you willing to rise above the drama and chaos and see the truth of who we are? Are you willing to celebrate the Greatness of humanity as brothers and sisters on a planet that offers abundance and prosperity for all of us? This is what is being offered to each and every one of us. This is the healing of humanity that is taking place with the realization that we are all in this together.

This morning I awoke with this song wafting through my consciousness: “This land is my land, this land is your land. . .” May we join in Peace and Prosperity.

Transcending the Fear of Truth and Transparency

transparency-blog

After decades of allowing the media to infiltrate and shape our lives according to the aspirations of those in power to manipulate society, humanity is finally rising up and demanding the “truth”. Everyone is up in arms about who done us wrong.

What we fail to realize is that revelation and disclosure effect all of us, not only the bad guys. If they need to come clean, so do we. There is no “they” for we need to accept equal responsibility for sleepwalking through these manipulations and allowing these misdeeds. We need to recognize that we have willingly turned the responsibility for our lives over to others. It’s not until we relinquish our role as victims and take responsibility for our own lives that things will change, on a global and personal level.

This isn’t about exposing the supposed perpetrators and attempting to fix the old, for the old systems are no longer sustainable. This is about creating something brand new. There is a grass roots movement to create our own communities, grow our own food and buy local. All these things will facilitate creating a more sustainable society. But it goes much deeper than that. You can’t create anew without dismantling the old foundations that are no longer serving us. And that begins within each of us individually being in integrity with the truth of our soul selves.

In answer to the call for change, we are all being stripped down naked. Everything hidden is surfacing seeking sacred release. Our unconsciousness is being revealed and denials exposed. This is a time of disclosure and transparency. As a result we’re feeling emotionally vulnerable, like the underbelly of the crab that’s been exposed. We fear rejection by those we love, which seduces us to return to the familiar to maintain our illusory comfortable hiding places.

But we cannot shout for change without being prepared to step out of our comfort zone, without coming out of the sleep induced cave where all the shadows dwell. We need to get brutally honest to feel all the anger, shame, blame, frustration, disappointment, heartache and pain that’s yearning for the loving warmth, compassion and light of the sun. Once we take those first steps into the sun’s delight, the shadows disappear revealing the truth that they were never real to begin with. These shadows were only a construct of the mind in an effort to protect us. As a result they have walled us off from the most basic energy of life. . . Love.

Anything without a substantial foundation based in Love is peeling away like surface paint that gave it a fancy patina. That which no longer serves has lost its ability to sustain. We are dying to the old. Death of the old can be painful if one hangs on with a fingernail grip. Resistance holds no advantage for death will have its way with you as the winds of change dismantle and blow away all that has died of its own accord, unencumbered by your unsubstantial efforting.

If instead, one looks deeper you will find a foundation that has always been sustainable, a foundation that will never falter. Striped of the antiquated acquired layers, what remains is your purest divine essence as the expression of your GodSelf that is always transitioning, always birthing anew.

Once you transcend your fear of transparency, you are seen for who you truly are with all your perfectly acceptable foibles. Bare it all, be vulnerable, be courageously honest. When you become clear and authentic with your self there is nothing to fear. You become free of the emotional cage that held you captive. You are free . . . free to live . . . free to create . . . free to love . . . Free to BE . . . FREE forevermore.

Now that you are free, how do you create a new world?
Having transcended the fear of truth and transparency, you are free to express all that is within your heart, and the collective will reflect that. Your deepest desires and intentions will be impressed upon the universe to become reality. By expressing the magnificent beautiful naked YOU radiating your new found joy, a New Earth founded in trust and transparency will be birthed anew for all of humanity.

Dynamic Duo of Kali Ma and Quan Yin

1aafcf37d7662bcd092f4a5be212bd729

“We are walking through the sludge of anger and darkness AND we are walking in love and light. Both are serving a sacred purpose.” This is the message conveyed to me via two of my favorite Goddesses Kali Ma and Quan Yin.

I know, most of you probably run the other way when Kali Ma shows up surrounded by her circle of fire with eyes blazing. At the very least you wrinkle your nose and whine, “Do we really have to?” But anyone who has worked with Kali knows that won’t cut it with Her. She always shows up when our world needs to be tipped on it’s side, or burned to the ground depending on how bad things are or how long they’ve been going on.

I know this from my own experience. In my early days I was not so prone to listen to my inner guidance. At first it was whispered, then it was spoken out loud from somewhere within me. Signs and synchronicities would show up from the most unlikely places. If I still wasn’t responding, my life would go haywire and things started to go wrong. Still not getting with the program my Soul had written for me before I incarnated….. okay, how about this!!!! That’s when Kali Ma’s lightning strikes!

Indeed, Kali struck my computer with lightening and blew it to bits while I was living in Spain. When I asked why, she said we were done with the old life, there was nothing there of interest anymore. Including my email list and phone numbers? She told me those who were meant to find me would find me. Ta-da…living in a foreign country, new computer, new life, new friends. I only had to experience that once to realize, when change is in the air it doesn’t serve anyone to continue breathing the stale old stuff rather than savoring the fresh breath of new beginnings.

So, when Kali recently showed up in my living room I jumped! And then a broad smile of appreciation spread across my face when Quan Yin appeared right beside her. Kali Ma the great destroyer hand in hand with Quan Yin the goddess of grace and compassion. The perfect duo for our present times!

Kali Ma is known as the Hindu goddess of transformation, death and rebirth. But it is the death of the ego and the illusory self-centered view of reality that lays on the death bed. She is the goddess of liberation from all our attachments to the old illusions of life. She is simultaneously the annihilator and the creatrix of manifestation who assists in maintaining the balance of Universal order. She will push you beyond your comfort zone to find the innate power of your full potential, abiding by your Soul’s instructions to make space for your embodiment of the eternal I AM.

In the words of Kali:
“Life is in eternal expansion. Life changes and so must you. I walk before you in the wake of change. Pay attention, heed the warnings, see the signs, listen to your internal wisdom. These stirrings offer you the opportunity to flow with the natural cycles of the universe in grace, rather than allowing them to catch you by surprise amidst the chaos and pain that result from your attempts to overpower them. When you heed my call, by stepping away from the old and welcoming the new, you dispel the discordant energies and invite harmony to prevail in your world.”

Quan Yin is the Buddhist goddess of mercy and compassion, the ultimate bodhisattva in service to humanity to bring an end to suffering when we need her the most. She sits upon the lotus that has pushed its way up from the depth of the mud, the mucky mud we are now experiencing in these times of transition. She reminds us that we too can rise above the mud. Her grace allows these transitions to happen with more ease. Her compassion opens our hearts to more love, allowing us to hear and embrace the divine wisdom that resides within us.

In the words of Quan Yin:
“I am Quan Yin, the Goddess of compassion, she who opens your heart to embrace that which you think is beyond your capacity to love. Compassion is often misconstrued as sympathy or pity, which draws us more deeply into the stories of victimhood. But true compassion is quite the opposite. Compassion honors the sovereign right for each person to experience life according to their own soul’s journey. When we choose compassion we are free of judgement and there is no such thing as a victim, for both parties are playing a role in their soul’s growth. When we listen with the intent of truly hearing one another, compassion can find a place in our lives, giving birth to the unconditional love and acceptance of all human beings. That is the ultimate freedom that comes with compassion.”
So why have the Dynamic Duo showed up now?

Humanity is currently on a path of destroying ourselves unless the planet is tipped on its side, or burnt to the core. The stories we’ve been living have been repeated over and over and over again for eons of time. Kali Ma says, “NO MORE!” We are ready to move beyond the old stories. The computer that has stored them has gone up in smoke, dispelling all the illusions and the old identities we’ve held so dear. We now stand naked to face a new reality.

In steps Quan Yin. . . with her infinite love and compassion to bring an end to suffering for all those who are caught between the fray of endings and beginnings, those who have not awakened to the truth of who they are, and those who need a guiding light into their heart space where that truth resides. She offers us the sweet scent of the lotus that has courageously pushed its way up through the mud, reminding us that we are all preparing to blossom in our magnificence. During which she is offering an abundance of love and compassion to see us through.

As always, the Universe has scripted this with spectacular finesse. The dynamic duo, Kali Ma and Quan Yin are here in service to each and every one of us, fully supporting us while cheering us onward to live life spontaneously and courageously with love and compassion at our core.

All aboard!!! First Class Seats on the Emotional Roller Coaster

704254-002

We’ve just experienced of one of the most intense months ever!!! Not just two but three eclipses during a mercury retrograde with numerous planetary alignments that are telling us… Life as we’ve known it is in the midst of change!

I was thinking about how emotionally unstable eclipses are for most people because most humans do not know how to deal with their emotions. We’ve had math classes, science classes, history classes and the like. But we’ve never had emotion classes. Duh… why not? We all have emotions and we’ve never been taught how to navigate them. 

Emotions are simply densified “feelings”, originally meant to serve as our intuitive navigation system aligned with our GodSelf to keep us from becoming stuck in the mires of duality. Side by side with the reptilian brain which served us well as cave men with it’s fight or flight response, but we’re not living in caves anymore. Over time these two separate emotional systems have blended together into a lethal cauldron of spell casting false illusions.

But our Divine Nature has reared her head and says, “Enough!! No more!!! No more illusions. It’s time to see the Truth.”

Thus we’ve been set up, big time!! Our current planetary injection of reality is intensifying our human emotions, projecting them bigger than life, so there is no way to ignore or escape them anymore. We’ve got to recognize and deal with them least we implode, personally and globally. The illusions are being stripped away and WE are what remains.

We stand here naked and stripped to the bone. There’s no where to hide. Not a comfortable place for most humans to be. But wait, we still have our bodies, we still have our bones. We haven’t been cast out, or dissolved into nothingness. We’re simply being unraveled and unwrapped to discover the core essence that resides in our bones, the foundational structure that is still standing tall.       

The Three Mislabeled Emotions

Emotions are what stimulate the endocrine hormonal system which influences nearly all cells, organs and functions of the human body. Do you really want your out of control emotions such as anger, fear, grief, sadness, and loneliness to be the controlling mechanism for your entire cellular structure? Because that’s what’s happening! No wonder there is so much disease and a dwindling of life force as we age.

Love, Peace and Joy are the backbones of your GodSelf that stand alone as the core essence of Who You Are. They are life-giving, omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient.   

Love
Love is the most misconstrued feeling of all. Humans have been struggling with this thing we call love for eons of time. On many levels love is experienced as an emotion, but true Love has its roots in the divinity of your Soul. Whereas the English language has only one word for love, the Greek language, along with many other languages, have multiple words for love. Eros for sexual passion, philia for friendship, ludus for playful love, agape for love of everyone, pragma for longstanding love, philautia for love of the self. The true essence of Love that’s  embedded in your bones is Divine Love as I’ve already spoken of in my blog “Crazy Love”. 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 Love is Who We Are, not what we do.

Peace

Finding peace can be a challenge when our lives have been turned upside down through painful circumstances, or when the media is constantly throwing barbs at us. But attaining peace does not need to be a struggle. Divine Peace is a gift of grace. Yeshua/Jesus spoke of the “peace that passeth understanding”. This divine peace doesn’t have any requirements. It doesn’t attempt to elude chaos, empty the mind of its chatter, or delete our worry. It’s a divine safety net that will always catch you if you fall, bringing comfort to your weary body, mind and spirit. You can’t buy this peace, you can’t summon it. You can only surrender to the Peace that is already Who You Are.   

Joy

Our benevolent universe only knows Joy. Joy is the infinite momentum that flows from Source continually feeding the natural flow of life. It doesn’t adhere to struggle and hardship. And yet, the human often refrains from Joy because we think we are unworthy. Our Divinity says otherwise. Joy is not doled out in payment for our good deeds. Joy is the marrow in our bones that produces the blood cells that flow through our bodies as life itself. Our core essence is Joy. Without Joy, we die.    

The Perks of the First Class Seats

All three of these.. . . Love, Peace and Joy emanate from the grace of the Divine. They are the comfortable first class seats on the emotional roller coaster. They are our inner refuge. No matter how many emotional ups and downs you experience, they are always present to carrying you through. They are steadfast. They do not falter. They do not have ups and downs as you hurdle through your adventurous journey of life. They will cheer you on as you experience the thrills. They will embrace you when loneliness or sadness seeps in. They will guide and support you for the most advantageous outcome. Most importantly they will always reflect the True You, rather than the illusive emotions that waft in and out of your mind like storm clouds.

These first class seats are the foundational “Seat of the Soul” requiring you to live naked, raw and fully alive in an ever expanding multidimensional universe. In these seats, you are life itself, feeling more than ever, not less…. from the deepest despair to the most ecstatic joy.

As multidimensional beings emotions are no longer duality based. You’re able to experience simultaneous emotions, rather than either-or, right-wrong, good-bad. For instance feeling sad because something has come to an end while simultaneously feeling joyous for the freedom it allows you. There is no war between them, no guilt, no angst. Once we expand our consciousness we’re able to utilize our emotions as they were originally meant to be as our intuitive navigation system aligned with our GodSelf to keep us from becoming stuck in the mires of duality.

The roller coaster of life continues it’s spirals and loops through the omniverse. It doesn’t care which seat you choose. You can sit in the front or the back. You can choose a first class seat or be satisfied with whatever seat happens to be available. Only you can decide what kind of ride you desire.

First class seats of Love Peace and Joy on the emotional roller coaster are now available. The only price to be paid is your willingness to make a choice. Buckle up!!! We’re in for quite a ride!

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 💕✨💕
