The Gift of Emotional Freedom

10665712_870784699607919_8332427627165846221_n

The events of this past week have all of us pondering deep questions about ourselves, society and the collective consciousness concerning sexual abuse. The blow up surrounding Harvey Weinstein set a whole chain of events in motion. There are many perspectives I could delve into from my personal one, to the feminine or masculine collective, to that of society in general. The only one I can honestly address is the question that popped up for me personally.

Why was I not drawn to join the “#Me Too” movement on fb/twitter?

I too had stories to tell, just as so many other women have. Notice I said “had” because none of those stories are active or vital for me anymore. That doesn’t make them any less real or excuse anyone’s behavior. It simply means I have done a lot of inner healing and my old stories no longer impact me so I chose to let them go a long time ago.

Because I was not pinged by these stories, i.e., emotionally upset, I could have shared my story from that aspect. From a spiritual or psychological aspect of how I no longer carry this anger, how I’ve healed this wound within me. Perhaps that would inspire or help other women to heal within themselves and honor themselves with self love and appreciation.

I am humbled by the outpouring of men who are embarrassed and apologizing for men in general. I could have written about my gratitude for their supportive words and actions.

But I was not drawn to actively engage, nor repelled into silence. Although I have immense compassion for the men and women who have been sharing their stories and those who are still not comfortable enough to speak the words, I have been watching it unfold as a neutral observer, emotionally unaffected by it. So again I ask, “Why is that?” This morning I awoke with a very clear answer to my question.

I am not drawn to engage in this public movement because I am not emotionally affected by it. Coming from a pure heart, I do not see victims and perpetrators. I see human beings playing out their stories. Stories that have been stored in the human mind matrix for eons of time.

Notice the similarity of these two words: Stories…. stored.
Stories are our own perceptions of events that have emotionally impacted us. There are many things we’ve experienced in life that did not get stored in our mind matrix. We experienced them in the moment and they simply passed on through. For instance, do you remember anything eventful about your last drive to the grocery store ? Unless something emotional happened it was basically a non-event , no story. It’s only our emotional experiences that are stored in the human mind matrix. They can be happy, sad, anger, grief, shame, or any number of emotions that stored these stories in our mind matrix. In addition, these emotions are also stored in our physical bodies, stimulating a chemical reaction interpreted as pain. I can attest to this as a physical therapist. How often I have worked with patients whose trauma/stories were released once the emotional pain was released from the physical body.

I have come to realize that emotions are the link between the unconscious and the conscious mind. When an emotion is pinged by a present event, the mind matrix acts very similar to AI (artificial intelligence) and pulls up all the unconscious stories that relate to that emotion.

At this point we have a choice. We can play out the old stories by pointing fingers at others to substantiate ourselves and continually add to the emotional clusterfuck. This what we have become accustomed to doing until the mind matrix goes into overdrive and we become emotionally overwhelmed either throwing us into depression/unconsciousness, acting out in a violent way, or eventually bursting us free by saying “Enough!”.

Once we’ve screamed “Enough!”, we think we need to dig into all our fears and shadow stuff, poke around and process all the details. But what if we could simply remove all dissonant vibrations from our energy field without going through the mind matrix? Why not release it emotionally without getting caught in the quagmires of the mind? What does that mean? It means I don’t need to know the details, what it is, where it came from, who did what to whom, or how to overcome it. Source doesn’t care about those things, why do we? Isn’t it time we learn to trust our Self enough to drop the protective walls constructed by our mind to see ourselves as whole and perfect, just as Source does?

When we are conscious with our emotions rather than the stories, we’re able to accept responsibly (= ability to respond) for our prior actions, without blame to ourselves or any others, in the same way Source sees us. Remembering we did the best we could in each situation, there is no need for blame. This dissolves the charge of the emotion and the story dissolves along with it. Each time we do this, more of the mind matrix unravels. As simple as this sounds, and it is simple, it does require vigilance so as not to retreat into our old patterns. The more often we do this, the more unconscious stories dissolve from the mind matrix until there are no longer any errant stories to draw upon.

This allows us to live in the moment, free of unconscious stories, free of the human mind matrix, free of the collective consciousness. We are now free to draw upon the wisdom of Divine Intelligence, instead of AI (artificial intelligence).

I realize this is why I was not drawn to engage in the “Me Too” movement. This is an aspect of my life in which I have freed my self of the emotional ping. And yes, I could get up on a soapbox and campaign with other women and men. Silence is not the answer for it only empowers the unconscious. Indeed it is important to shine the spotlight on this part of the human mind matrix by bringing it into the consciousness so these emotions/stories can be healed. It’s important to bear witness. But it does not feel empowering for me to re-engage in a story that is no longer mine. It feels more empowering and uplifting to hold this sacred space where suffering and abuse can be transformed by sharing my awareness as an avenue of healing that can be useful not only for these atrocities but for all emotional trauma.

When we are willing to consciously acknowledge and respond to raw emotion with love and grace, rather than the stories that have been stored, we empower ourselves to dissolve the old human matrix that has held us captive for eons of time. In this way we’re no longer engaged in AI. Instead, we’re engaged with the heart, which is the cauldron of Divine wisdom and creativity. We’re able to let go of what has been and embrace the new from which we can create a world that is more loving and gracious to live in relationship with all of humanity.

New Roles of Compassion

compassion

We have been witnessing one disaster after another, more so in this past year than ever before. Despite all the chaos, I have continually been guided to hold the high road, to shine the light, to remind others of the joy that is equally present.

I don’t tune into the media’s frenzy, engage in political or religious debates, or fight for causes. Nor do I judge those who choose to do so. I simply turn the other cheek, as Yeshua/Jesus says. I turn my face away from that which I have no control over and do what I can do in the presence of my own life and my immediate surroundings. I continue to do what my Soul is guiding me to do. And for each of us that may look very different, for we each have our own unique soul path.

However, with all the current disasters there are moments I question what feels like my lack of compassion. That’s when I remember the conversation I had with Quan Yin years ago with her reflections on compassion:

“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. True compassion is fostered in our acceptance rather than our scrutiny. 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, especially ourselves. That, my love, is the ultimate freedom that comes with compassion”
“So how does compassion couple with forgiveness?” I ask.
“Forgiveness is the ultimate act of letting go and freeing ourselves from the endless cycles of judgment, blame, shame and guilt. Judgment stems from our expectations and beliefs. It’s our own expectations, not someone one else’s, that set us up for the fall. Forgiveness is not directed toward another. It is a precious gift to one’s self. For-giving is the giving forth of Love. Once we love ourselves, compassion becomes a natural way of life. When we live in unconditional love and compassion, there’s nothing to forgive. You see, it’s all rooted in Love.”
“Well, that’s certainly a new perception. I always thought forgiveness was about someone else, us absolving them for what they did.” I replied.
Quan Yin smiles, “I think you’re confused, dear one. That’s called Love.”

 

Even with that knowing I will occasionally pause and question my soul’s guidance. How can I possibly post something joyful on fb when the rest of humanity is in despair? Where is my compassion? Should I not be feeling the loss others are feeling?

That’s when my Soul popped in with an answer:

“Humanity is moving through its own chaos and turmoil as it transitions into a new world. If you were to emotionally hook into every disaster present on the planet you would soon become lost in the anguish, despair and misery that is prevalent. If you gave away all your energy and resources, then who would be available to forge a new path and light the way for others?

YOU are compassionate by nature. 
There is nothing you need do to prove this to yourself or to others. There is no such thing as a compassion yardstick to measure how compassionate you or anyone else is. If you are not acting in a way that others consider to be compassionate, it’s because there is an old concept of compassion. You have been taught that compassion requires you to give yourself away in order to be compassionate in the eyes of others. You have since learned otherwise.

You have learned that the heart will always act compassionately free of the interference of the mind which is simply ego’s way of making you feel good about the person it thinks you should be. True compassion is innate. It is who you are and you demonstrate it with a humility in ways you do not even realize.

Your true compassion is the expression of your Soul, reacting as your GodSelf, seeing all in divine order. Source does not lower the vibration to match others. Source holds the highest vibration and says. . . come, come join me here in the joy of life.”

 

Therefore, I see myself in a new light of compassion. The same way the soul is compassionate, simple and pure, without lowering my vibration to match those around me. Each has their own way of expressing compassion. My expression is one of shining the light on the path of divinity that is available for all of us, without which we would all be wallowing in despair.

I share this because I can feel the angst of so many who are being pulled into the mire when their soul is asking them to be free of it. This is especially true of the empath who feels “everything”. That doesn’t mean we don’t reach out a helping hand. It means we do it with joy in our hearts because we see something much better for all of humanity. It means we honor the divinity of each person’s unique soul path. It means we are free of the old teachings of what is required to be a “good” person. It means we can hold out our hand just as Source does and say. . . Come, come join me in the Joy of Life.

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.

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 that 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 at Standing Rock North Dakota protecting our waterways while being faced down by DAPL 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.

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!

Celebrating Mary Magdalyn, Apostle to the Apostles

Yeshua Magdalyn cropped

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

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

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

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

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

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