You May Think this is Crazy, but . . .

Surreal

We’ve all had surreal or magical experiences at one time or another, what other’s might call “strange” or “crazy”. They may have been something simple like thinking we know a person we’ve never met before. Or it could be something as expansive as a near-death experience. They may have happened in our childhood or anywhere along the way. They may appear in lucid dreams, while walking in the forest, during an accident, emotional trauma, while driving your car, or walking down the street. 

The experience itself is not the utmost importance. How we choose to interact with the experience is what’s important. Whether we ignore it, or realize it as an important part of our soul’s journey. 

Most of the time, we keep the craziest of the crazy experiences to ourselves, for fear of being judged by others. We think there is some protocol for reality by the collective. And to some degree that is true. However, per my experience, humanity’s consciousness is expanding and there are many who are hungry to hear these experiences to validate their own secreted stories to set them free.  

All of these experiences are our Soul’s guideposts along our journey. As such, sharing them with others may validate or inspire them to be more open to acknowledge their own guideposts and create a new reality and lifestyle for themselves.

Indeed, there are some very raw and sacred experiences that we choose to savor and keep to ourselves so as not to sully them. Or, we may wait until just the right moment that spontaneously presents itself to share with a few bosom intimates, as per our inner guidance.  

Most of the things we deem crazy aren’t nearly as crazy as they first appeared once we bring them out into the light of day and share them. The more we share, the more grounded and real these experiences become for us and for those around us. Until one day, the surreal becomes our reality and we no longer fear being judged because we stand in integrity with our Soul’s journey rather than the collective consciousness. And then, the stories begin to flow like honey for the Soul rather than crazy mind chatter.

When you decide to begin sharing your stories, and I hope you do because humanity needs to hear them in order to expand the consciousness, make wise Soul choices with whom and when to share. At first, you may feel like a fledging and share with a select few. Eventually, you will become embolden and sovereign enough to stand in your truth and share, without regard to what others may think or say. 

I have been seeing a lot of friends inching their way toward sharing their treasured experiences. That excites me because it gives us a whole new foundation from which to play together. Reality as we know it is simply an agreement between enough people to call it real. When we give up our need for the approval of others, EVERYTHING becomes real to us. We become like children again, living in total wonderment open to ever-expanding possibilities. 

Per my experience, I have one suggestion to make should you choose to share your stories. This is your story, your experience, and your Soul Wisdom.  It is no less or more important than anyone else’s for each of us has our own unique Soul path and wisdom to share. When you choose to share it, OWN IT. Stand in the truth of it. 

Don’t sully it by beginning with, “You may think this is crazy, but. . .” That only sets the stage for judgment and doubt. Rather, speak it as your truth without concern for what others may think. How they receive it is up to them. But by setting them up for “crazy talk”, that’s exactly what it becomes, fearful crazy-making rather than your truth laced with pearls of wisdom. 

I’ve been seeing some of the most sacred experiences being set up and shared as “crazy talk” and that saddens me. There is nothing crazy about Soul experiences. They are sacred and meant to be honored and shared when called upon. When you respect and honor your self, others will respond appropriately.

So, from my heart to yours, I implore you, become comfortable with embodying your surreal experiences. Claim your own sovereignty and inner knowing. Then, when it feels right, share them as the truth and wisdom of Who You Are

Hello Passion!!!

7b8a07c47d1cdcff5bafbda3f2bbbaab

Last evening I was feeling so lost and bored with my life. I realize letting go of my old human persona is a big part of this. That I have no difficulty with. What I do have difficulty with is the boredom. It’s not so much that I need something to “do”. It’s that I have no passion for life. I can’t say I’m depressed, the human aspect of me would think that. Actually, I have an inner peace and contentment. Nor am I experiencing the drama and difficulties many others are right now. Thus the boredom. However, I know there is more to life than this and I want to participate in a much deeper way. What is this new way? My old passion seems to have disappeared and I want to find my new passion. Thus I did what I usually do when I’m feeling this unsettled. I went to bed with the intention of going very deep, asking, “Where are you Passion? Show yourself to me.”

Ask and it is given. I sensed a new energy flooding my dreamtime last night. It carries a sweet essence of…. softness and gentleness. I can feel its potency, how it permeates all of life. I feel its passionate nature and strong desire to birth things from within itself. Once I became aware of it I began to feel its infinite energy creating of its own accord with new creations mushrooming out simply by my desire to experience the vibrancy and depth of life. I’m feeling this flow of energy as our infinite abundance and our new foundation upon which to build. I spent the rest of the night floating in this new energy, observing it, and participating with it.

Upon awakening in the morning, I realized my passion did show itself to me just as I requested. Funny thing is that I have been asking and it has been here all along, at least in the form of ease and grace. But I have not noticed it because I have been looking for the old form of passion. I have been accustomed to my passion being strong and fiery. A very masculine form of passion. That aspect of passion was necessary for a human to overcome all the programing that holds us back. We had to fight our way out of the old belief systems of the need to work hard and struggle to attain any success.

Whereas the passion of the Soul is soft and gentle, much more of a feminine nature. It’s been here all along in the background, but I’ve not noticed it. I’ve not tapped into it. Just as the feminine womb is always awaiting a new seed to nurture and give birth, I feel this new essence of infinite passion bubbling in the background, quietly awaiting me to give voice to my desires.

I remember many years ago when someone asked me what my passion is, I thought about it for a few moments and couldn’t come up with only one thing. In my quest to experience the most out of life, I have moved through so many different passions. My answer was. . . “My passion is whatever I’m doing in the moment.” So I guess I’ve known this about passion for a long time but continued to define it the way society does, with all the fire and bling. When my enthusiasm to “do” any of the things normally associated with passion disappeared, life felt flat and boring.

Now that I’ve called upon my innate flow of passion I can feel the strength of it, the potency of it. I realize I birthed so much last night in my dreamtime after I had called upon it. I can not put words to those things quite yet, only that I’m aware of them in my energy field as they begin to take form.

Hello Passion!!! I see you, I feel you. I know you. I’m now living in a more expanded awareness of ease and grace. I feel the depth of life and I’m excited to be interacting with it in a more intimate way. I feel at peace, integrated with the passion of my Soul. . . soft, gentle, here and now.

Embarking upon a New Flight Path

 

Rainbow clouds

I am a very prolific and lucid dreamer. I say that in regard to the dreams I’ve had ever since childhood. Big dreams, dreams beyond other people’s imaginations, dreams often poo-pooed by others. Because of that I often relegated those dreams to the shadows while living what others call “real life”. But in recent years those dreams have sprung out of the shadows unceasingly vying for my attention once again.

This began nearly 20 years ago with a repetitive dream night after night that would not allow me to avoid it. Once I acknowledged it and brought it into my meditations, the dream began to grow and expand, taking on a life of its own. Since then there are others who have begun talking about a similar dream. That dream is living what many refer to as New Earth.

Living on New Earth requires a lot of changes from the normal human perspective, the one I had bought into as “real life”. Like many of you, I’ve broken away from most of the old belief systems created by mass consciousness. I’m no longer living according to man made laws, rather remembering and living according to Divine Law. On a more personal level, I’ve created a very different life style as well. A lifestyle that aligns with my perception of New Earth, no longer needing to work hard to live a happy and fulfilling life.

In the past few months my dreams have been fine tuned to reveal the deepest most core beliefs that needed to be released in order to step fully into the dream I incarnated with, the dream I intend to fully embody within this lifetime.

I share with you a dream I had a few nights before the solar eclipse. Perhaps there is something here that resonates with you, either consciously or unconsciously.

During this dream: 
I was traveling with two people, one of whom was my father. We each had a duffle bag that was long and narrow, much like a body bag, that we were going to check as baggage. While the others were busy with something else, I opened my duffle and a pair of men’s shoes fell out that one of my former lovers had left behind a long time ago intending to return for them. I was debating what to do with them. I wasn’t able to make a decision, so I set them aside on the floor. I then pulled out a computer device and transferred some data to a smaller devise which I tucked into my belly pack. As I was zipping it closed, my father walked up and asked what I was doing. I told him I felt better having this with me in case the baggage got lost. I realized as I said that, I no longer needed the duffle. I was done with it. I already have everything I need. I then turned and walked toward the flight gate while the other two were busy rearranging all the stuff in their duffles. When I looked down at my ticket, it was nameless and I had no identification. Without looking back, I walked through the gate. That was the last I ever saw of my travel companions, my duffle or my lover’s shoes.

Along with being a prolific dreamer, I’m also a prolific journaler. First thing in the morning, my computer is in my lap with a pot of coffee or tea at my elbow. Dreams are recorded, brought into my meditation, and given a life of their own to speak to me in a more conscious way. These have always been some of my most intimate Soul conversations.

This dream said the following to me:
I am free, no longer a bag of flesh and bones with DNA inherited from my human biological ancestral linage. I Am a multidimensional being with my own Divine DNA, a unique and sovereign Soul being, ready to take flight in new and exciting ways, free of the old matrixes that have been holding me back. 

The men’s shoes were the amalgamation of all the men in my life who were my most sacred teachers. It was important for me to remove them from my body bag. The shoes were not discarded. They were simply waiting for the owner to retrieve what is theirs if they so choose. For although I still hold a special place in my heart for them, I am now a sovereign being, neither male nor female, both male and female. I am the embodiment of Source as my own sovereign Soul Being.

This is the second dream I’ve had within a week about walking away from people into my own realty without any desire to tell them where I’m going or invite them to join me, with the awareness that we each have our own unique Soul path.

As a result, I have become totally honoring of other’s Soul path without the need to understand or change it in any way. I realize how obvious it has become to observe how others shift when they step into my energy field. Sometimes they can’t move away from me quickly enough. Other times they linger without any words and that’s enough. Or they may initiate some kind of conversation and wonder how they got there. Knowing this, I can simply ALLOW the other person to lead the way, without any efforting.

If I resonate with them for my own soul growth or expanded consciousness, I will engage. Otherwise, I do not engage nor attempt to change myself to fit onto their path for the sake of a relationship. I trust that if anyone resonates with my sovereign self or my soul path they will ask, otherwise I do not share my inner wisdom. In some ways you might think this makes for superficial conversations between everyday people. When in reality it makes for genuine conversation and intimate connections between people who are interested in Soul growth rather than human based egoic validation. By doing so, the people we draw into our lives facilitate each other’s expanded consciousness, love and joy.

I have walked away from much in my life, people, homes, jobs, health issues and old beliefs. Now it is time to walk away from my old persona to take flight, much like a butterfly that is no longer a caterpillar. I am aware that not everyone is choosing to walk through this gateway. That’s okay because we each have our own unique Soul journeys, each one of equal import.

For those who choose to walk through this flight gate, it is solo as a sovereign being without any baggage. The sovereign being passes through the eye of the needle naked, alone, in serenity and simplicity, having left everything behind after surrendering it all to their GodSelf.

Once I settle into my seat I notice that although the landscape has changed, nothing was lost, everything gained, as I dream my new life into being perfectly aligned with with All-That-Is in a new playground of joyous creation. As a Sovereign being, with a heart fully open, I glance back at the gateway and bow in gratitude to my human self for the courage to step through.

Although the seats on the transporter are solo, there are many on board. However, we don’t realize that until we’ve already settled into our own sovereign seats before lifting our vision to look around. When we do. . . Voila!! We realize although we are sovereign beings, we are never alone!

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.

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.

Releasing the old “Collective Consciousness”

ascension

 

What a restless night of tossing and turning! I was caught up in a never ending dreamtime that was abnormally “sticky”. Whereas I’m usually quite adept at rewriting my dreams while in the midst of them, it took me 3 cycles through this dream to eventually break free of it.

In the first cycle of the dream, I was experiencing my shoulders curling forward, my neck was sore, and I was unable to stand up straight anymore from the burden I was carrying. I had taken on way more responsibilities than I was able to handle. I realized none of this was mine and I was able to return all the responsibilities to those who have been placing it upon my shoulders throughout my life. Once I did this I was able to stand up strong and straight again.

In the second cycle, I realized I not only allowed this overburdening of responsibilities, it gave me an egoic spiritual boost by thinking that I’m on a mission to awaken others and save the planet. Ha! Tricky tricky ego! Time for me to realize each person is exactly where they need to be on their own soul path, each playing their unique role for a much bigger picture than my ego is able to ascertain.

In the third cycle, while I was overwhelmed with all this unstuck energy churning through my body I heard Gaia say to me, “Here, allow me to handle this for you, my dear one.” In that instant my root chakra opened up and gravity emptied me of what was never mine to begin with, clearing my womb to birth anew.

Later that morning as I was remembering the dream I realized, Gaia does not need saving!!! She’s not the old earth. She has already vibrationally ascended and no longer locked into a 3d reality which she held in place in service to us as a learning environment. Gaia only asks for our respect and trust in her as we’re given the opportunity to ascend along with her and awaken to ALL of Who We Are.

What many are referring to as old earth is actually the “old collective consciousness” playing itself out. There is no old earth, only stale old consciousness that will continue recycling through its 3d duality until the very last human decides to release it. In the meantime, everyone who is choosing to break free and clear of the old collective consciousness is ascending along with Gaia and expanding into our multidimensionality.

As a child I was fully aware of my multidimensionality. Like many of us, when we entered school, it was no longer acceptable to play with our “unseen” friends. So we stepped fully into the collective consciousness and blocked everything else out. At some point our soul says. . . beloved human, it’s time to wake up and remember all of who you are, because this is what we’ve come here to do in this lifetime.

At first our “unseen” world and all of our old friends begin to fade back into our awareness just beyond a self-placed veil. We know it’s there, present in dreamtime or obscure visions, where we’re able to interact with it beyond the constructs and limitations of the mind. Eventually we connect with our Inner Being and the collective consciousness no longer takes precedence in our lives. For awhile, we’re living a dualistic life attempting to find a balance between the two. At some point we learn to fully trust our Inner Being and it’s as if the two flip. What used to be dreamtime is attracted into our present energy field by our Inner Being and becomes our reality, no longer veiled from us. And the collective consciousness, that was our reality is seen as if through a veil. We know it’s there, but it no longer has an impact upon us and we’re no longer engaging with it unless we choose to do so.

All of this is an organic process that’s been woven into our DNA before we incarnated. As the vibration of the planet increases, new codons of DNA are activated and our consciousness expands. We naturally awaken to our multidimensionality and more of who we are. Each of us is experiencing this expansion in our own unique way with divine timing based on our soul’s passion and desire to know more of itself. It’s not something we can force, nor is it something we can block anymore. Either one of these attempts will only create unnecessary pain and tribulation in our lives. By simply releasing the old collective consciousness and allowing this innate process, it has the potential of unfolding with ease and grace along with Gaia.

Gaia’s advise to me has always been . . .
“Ride my waves of consciousness and keep your life pure and simple.”

Surf’s up BeLoveds, Consciousness is expanding, and the Sun is brightly shining!!!
