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.

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.
