Formless Creation

5dd1256853b85267751a601f6bc67326

While sitting quietly in the pre-dawn morning, I was observing the subtle rippling energies within and around me. At some point, I noticed the soft iridescent petals of a flower drawing together to form a rose. This rose was not opening from a bud as we are accustomed. The petals were drawing themselves together to form itself from the essence of the unseen. I watched with fascination as the rose came into form, undulated for awhile, and then dissolved back into the primordial source of creation.

The beauty of this moment held my attention with a new appreciation of creation. A huge smile of awareness spread across my face. Every cell within me lit up with this new realization. Creation does not need to follow a linear pattern, from seed to manifestation to death. Free of the time/space continuum, it has the ability to draw to itself that which it desires to experience without the need to maintain form. Creation is alive and constantly thriving whether we see it or not. Life exists whether it is in form, or formless.

I realized how intent humans are on the result rather than the miraculous process of creation. How we only value form despite the fact that most of creation does not have, nor maintain form. It is only the human perspective that holds form in place. The purity of our consciousness does not require form. Indeed we enjoy playing with form, but it is not a requirement of life.

I could share more words with my creative musings, but that will only take us more deeply into the human’s need to mentally understand that which exists beyond understanding. Instead, I leave you with this question:

How much life experience are we missing by only focusing on form and how much more can we allow?

The Game of Duality

monopoly

It is said . . .
“There is no light without shadow.”
“There is no good without bad.”
“Suffering is a natural part of life.”
“You can not know light without darkness.”

Unless. . .
The sun is directly above you. . . where you cast no shadow.
You are experiencing all that life has to offer . . . without the need to judge.
You flow with the natural unfoldment of life. . . instead of trying to control it.
You are radiating light from within you. . . which dispels any darkness.

I have come to realize that duality is a game humans play.
A game we’ve been taught by those who have never realized they’ve been confined within duality. A game with rules perpetrated by religion and government to control the masses. A game most humans have never been courageous enough to break free, to explore beyond the “rules” of duality.

As children, we are born free of the beliefs and bonds of duality. For the first few years of my life I recall living in my own delightful world of magic. Until rule by rule, I was eventually imprisoned by the game of duality and the magic of life disappeared.

But times have changed. By remembering the truth of who I AM, my Inner-Knowing has surfaced once again. And it doesn’t coincide with what I’ve been taught by my parents, teachers, society, religion, or mass consciousness.

Those of us who are awakening from the hypnosis of duality that we’ve been living most of our lives have begun questioning everything. It begins with things that are no longer working for us: health issues from the stress of overwork, depression from living a heart impoverished life, relationship breakups, loss of jobs, homes, and the snuffed out spark of life.

As I look around I realize our newest generation isn’t buying into the old games of duality. They see no need to rebel against it. They are simply creating life from a sea of infinite potentials, free of the old indoctrination and the old bonds of society. Whereas our generation has had to summon the courage to break free, they were never imprisoned to begin with.

Even the new age moment is still caught up in the game of duality, as demonstrated by the quotes streaming through my facebook newsfeed. Quotes like the sentences at the top of this page. Quotes of separation and divisiveness from the Inner-Knowing of our GodSelf.

These are the beliefs that imprison us from living our full potential. Beliefs that hold the magic of life at bay. Beliefs that rob us from manifesting our dreams. Beliefs that are nothing more than the illusion of duality, a game we’ve been playing for far too long.

I hereby offer you the card to “Break out of Prison”, pass by GO, collect your infinite $$$ and dump the Monopoly game board into the trash along with all your long held dualistic beliefs.

High Ho! High Ho!
Magic is enlivened once again and your infinite reality awaits!!!

Holiday Transitions

48358455_10215010101898693_8138052059061551104_n

Although Christmas is meant to be a time of Joy and Celebration, it can also imprison one in long-standing traditions and expectations. It can conjure the grief and pain from Christmas past. And it can embroil you in adding stress to an already stressful life. All at a time when your body is yearning to snuggle into a cocoon during the darkest season of the year.

I have spent many of the past years trying to “deal with” the mass consciousness of Christmas. Moving from America to Spain for a few years naturally removed me from the frenetic traditions of my own country. Once I returned, I discontinued doing the holiday things I no longer enjoy, albeit feeling guilty for not fulfilling what was expected of me by friends and family. For a few years I fully disengaged from Christmas and replaced it with celebrating Solstice by swathing the window sills with greenery and candlelight.

This year everything has shifted. When I “feel” into the holiday of Christmas I feel JOY! Since I have shed so many layers of my old self, this is a JOY bubbling from within me. I’m totally free of any obligations and no longer engaging with a false perception of holiday joy created by mass consciousness.

I now take every opportunity to Play with the JOY of life!!! This holiday season has me singing and dancing with holiday music, decorating with lots of candles and twinkle lights, eating decadent foods, and celebrating with “special” friends. Many of these friends are my beloved Fae who live in the forest. Their presence continues to remind us of the Joy and Magick of Life.

This is the difference I’m feeling with the holiday season this year.
I AM FREE!!! And I AM JOY!!

The Magic of Choosing our Point of Consciousness

point of consciousness

What is our reality?
A question that keeps cycling around, both in the spiritual and scientific community. Everyone is attempting to corral reality. That’s what the human mind does. It tries to categorize everything into its antiquated file drawers of physicality. And if that doesn’t work, science creates a “new theory” file and sets up tests to validate it.

The spiritual community is aware reality isn’t what it used to. They too are attempting to expand upon the old reality. So, some channeled entity says, “Hey, let’s add another dimension and define that.” How many more dimensions and chakras have we added in the past few years? And yet, this is still the mind at play, albeit in a more expanded version.   

There is only one way to go beyond the human mind, and that is by “experiencing” life in the present moment. For the mind can only function in timelines of past and future. When you are fully present, you debunk the human mind. It’s no longer “bunking” within you and you are free to be fully awake and aware.  

 Everything is vibration and the human mind has frozen our physical reality into place. When we go beyond the mind by being fully present, only the things that are relevant in the moment via our point of consciousness are present with/for us and that which we do not need in the present moment disappears.

This is what many refer to as miracles or magic. When we shift our point of consciousness, infinite potentials become relevant and available. This is what is referred to as creating our own reality. It’s not about thinking something into reality. It’s about choosing a new point of consciousness where all the potentials are there for our choosing. Potentials beyond anything our mind could possibly imagine!! 

Shifting our point of consciousness is all it takes to change our reality. You can read more about this on my blog Multi-Dimensional Resolution .  The more often we function beyond the human mind, the more insubstantial our old world feels to us. And then, my Beloveds, what we used to call magic becomes our way of being in the world.

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

Button Pushing with Ease and Grace

Art Susan Seddon Boulet

Okay, I’ll say this right up front. This is going to push a few buttons for people. That’s okay, because unless those buttons get pushed, they get stuck in the ON position running on constant repeat. So here goes. If this pushes your button, you can either jump in there and stick it back on repeat with some duct tape, or you can simply allow it to play itself out with ease and grace.

This is something I’ve been experiencing most of my life, especially since I began my spiritual journey. We’ve been indoctrinated into thinking there’s something wrong with us. And then we create an abundance of stories to validate that. Once we spiritually awaken, we go deep diving into our psyches to excavate and heal all these perceived wounds.

I’ve worked as a physical therapist, alternative healer, and spiritual coach. What I’ve discovered is that those who truly choose to heal, do. And those who are still caught up with that button pushed flat out in the ON position, don’t. At some point I had to ask, is there no end to these stories? Do we ever reach a point in which we are “healed”? If so, how do we do that?

I ran across this passage from John O’Donahue this morning and it spoke volumes to me. Perhaps his words may touch a place in your soul that speaks to you as well:

“People in our hungry modern world are always scraping at the clay of their hearts. They have a new thought, a new plan, a new syndrome, that now explains why they are the way they are. They have found an old memory that opens a new wound. They keep on relentlessly, again and again, scraping the clay away from their own hearts. In nature we do not see trees, for instance, getting seriously involved in therapeutic analysis of their root systems or the whole stony world that they had to avoid on their way to the light. Each tree grows in two directions at once, into the darkness and out to the light with as many branches and roots as it needs to embody its wild desires.

Negative introspection damages the soul. It holds many people trapped for years and years, and ironically, it never allows them to change. It is wise to allow the soul to carry on its secret work in the night side of your life. You might not see anything stirring for a long time. You might have only the slightest intimations of the secret growth that is happening within you, but these intimations are sufficient.” ~ John O’Donohue: Excerpt from ANAM CARA~

I have no judgment here for anyone’s particular path, for every soul offers wisdom, and we’ve each chosen to experience things for our own soul’s growth. I’m simply sharing my own personal experience. And perhaps shining a light on a few stuck buttons.

At some point in my life, I got so fatigued with attempting to heal myself and others that I just walked away. I gave up my healing practice and stopped coaching others. I decided there must be an easier way. For the divine within me doesn’t know suffering. And that’s how I chose to live, free of suffering, with the natural ease and grace of life.

Over the years, I played a lot of spiritual shenanigans. Some of them worked to some degree but they were nothing more than games of the mind. Yes, I choose to focus on the good in life rather than the bad. You know, the law of attraction and such as that. There are those who think that’s putting your head in the sand and ignoring all the bad stuff. But, I’m not one who is constantly reaching for the artificially rose-colored glasses.

What I finally realized is that noticing the joy and beauty of life is my natural way of BEing. It’s how the Divine experiences life. It’s the truth of Who I Am, and I was simply getting caught up in the collective consciousness.

Thus, I walked away from all of it and simply called in the Divine. My buttons started popping like crazy. Once I became aware of them, I had to surrender a lot of my usual habits and patterns. It hasn’t always been comfortable, because it means I no longer fit into society’s idea of right and wrong. And stepping out of that requires immense courage because most of the people around us prefer that we remain as they’ve always known us to be.

But after awhile, I noticed a new hum in my life. It’s the hum of Well-being. It’s the hum of the Divine. It’s the hum of my natural way of being. All I need do is remain attuned to this hum, my hum, my authentic Self. I’m aware that the void, or the darkness, is the womb where all my potentials and desires are birthed. I don’t hesitate to spend time in my womb of potentials, I relish it. When I do, new dreams and desires flow into my life with ease and grace.

Yes, there are times when a formerly undisclosed button gets pushed. When it does, I say, Bravo! Because it means more of Who I Am is being revealed to me. But I don’t go deep diving beneath that button to see what pain initiated it, or what I need do to heal it or clear it. I simply allow the button to release itself of its own accord, unraveling all the circuitry that’s been connected to it over the years. All I need do is get out of the way and allow it to clear.

Easy Peasy!
And that’s how life is meant to be lived!
More than that, life is meant to be FUN!

Some say I live in the magic of life. I say magic is natural, and it’s the way life is meant to be! For this is the way of the Divine. And this is the lifetime in which we have chosen to realize that we are Divinely Human.

It Doesn’t Matter

butterflies

It doesn’t matter. It just doesn’t matter to me anymore. So many things that used to irk me or call me to action, just don’t matter. More importantly since they don’t matter, they’re no longer present in my life.

When I reflect on this it feels like magic. No need to control my thinking. No affirmations. No mantras. No need to work at it. What no longer matters to me simply disappears.

Are we transcending the Law of Attraction?
With the law of attraction, we’ve been taught that what we place our attention on manifests. On a broader scale it’s said our vibration is what attracts our reality. Although I agree with both of these statements, I haven’t had all that much success working with them to manifest my desires. It seems so often the rightness or wrongness of something goes to battle with each other and negates the whole process, often referred to as creating resistance. And the mind surely has enough of that static to go round and round the gerbil wheel.

Is this the way of the New Energy?
The old linear 3d energy is based on polarity. Either it attracts or it repeals something. Therefore it’s important to line it all up properly to attract that which we want and repel that which we don’t want. First we have to process it to figure it out and understand it. Only then can we line things up properly. 
Whereas. . . quantum energy is neutral, without a positive or negative charge. It doesn’t care. If you give it a wave, it’s totally in service to you. It effortlessly flows to you and responds “in the moment” without any need to prepare or line things up.

Is this the freedom of the new Sovereign Human?
The linearity of 3d has us tied to the past and the future, always working out our future based on our accumulated past. The matrix has us chained to old systems: educational, financial, political, religious, etc. and in order to survive we’ve got to adhere. When we realize these systems are outdated and let go of our past to live in the present moment, we are free to let bygones be bygones. As a result, we break out of our old cocoons to become free Sovereign Humans open to infinite new potentials.

In this new reality it doesn’t matter why the old way is no longer working for me. That’s all just mental chatter anyway. When I realize most of what used to matter, doesn’t really matter. Voila!! Like magic, that which is not wanted disappears. And what remains? Infinite new potentials!!!
