The Importance of Conscious Choice

The most glaring thing I’ve noticed about the COVID pandemic is our lack of choice. Restrictions such as lockdowns, masks, social distancing, vaccines, etc . . . . No wonder there is so much unrest, so much resistance, so many demonstrations when we feel that the freedoms on our daily lives have been taken away from us.

In a conversation with someone recently about the mandate of wearing masks, it became apparent to me that it’s not about wearing a mask, which in the end will only be temporary. Our ire has been ignited because we feel like we have lost our ability to choose.

I have always been a bit of a rebel. I was a precocious child that did not take kindly to others telling me what to do, or not do. As a triple Aries, I have always blazed my own path. So imposing all these COVID restrictions have caused me to reassess how I approach life.

When masks were first presented as a cautionary, I chose not to wear one because I trust my immune system. But when my local market posted a sign on the door that said: “No mask, No service. If you have a medical condition we are happy to do your shopping for you and deliver your groceries to your home.”, I now had a choice to make: To wear a mask while shopping, or to allow the market to be in service to me by delivering my groceries.

I appreciate that my community market gave me a choice. Many places did not. Because I enjoy shopping for my own groceries, especially fresh produce, I chose to wear a mask to do my shopping. I saw no need to battle with a company that was willing to accommodate us by shopping for us and delivering our groceries. It was this choice that allowed me to reduce any resistance or anger about compulsory dictates. Instead, I realized it was not a hardship to don a mask for the hour I was shopping and enjoy my meals of fresh produce.

There has been a lot of discussion on the internet about humans unconsciously becoming “sheep” by just following the “merry piper of control” during these imposed restrictions. Indeed there has been a lot of this!! Most humans are unconscious. They simply follow whatever their friends or family are doing. They do not stop to consider the options and make conscious choices for what is best for themselves.

This had me thinking about all the rules or laws that we need to abide by in our daily lives. Just as you, there are some that I agree with and some I do not. But to what avail would my resistance result other than keep my own ire activated and thus impair my own health?

I have to ask: How different are our laws than my own boundaries and rules. For instance, because I live in the forest (which can become a bit muddy) I require mu guests to remove their shoes before entering my home, which has light colored carpet. How different is this from being required to stop at a red light to ensure that drivers and passengers are safe from the chaos of everyone barreling into the intersection at once? Each has its purpose.

I have come to realize that it is my own Sovereignty that is at stake here. It is the lack of choice that bothers me, not the rules themselves. In many cases, I can simply walk around them because they really do not matter very much. In other cases, it is in service to humanity that I abide by them. Neither anger, nor resistance serve me. In reality, what I desire is peace. For me, peace is derived via my contemplation, understanding, and making a conscious choice.

IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP! !
The COVID restrictions have brought much to our attention. I see three groups of people. Those who are unconsciously following the rules because they are sleep walking through life. Those who are weighing their options and making choices as sovereign beings. And those who are choosing to resist and demonstrate to make changes for the whole.

Indeed, in some cases, we do need to stand up to defend our democracy and our right of speech. I have no desire to enter into a political discussion here. I am simply pointing out that once we become conscious, we realize we DO have choice.

The choice is whether to enter into life unconsciously or live consciously with each and every choice we face. Once we make a choice, follow it through without resistance. For it is the resistance that robs us of our Peace, which is why we desire the ability to make our own choices.

My question is this:
How much energy does it takes to resist, to push against something, creating more chaos rather than directing that energy toward finding a way to rise above it, to make the space necessary to create anew.

So what is your role?

Once we become conscious, we realize there are many roles to be played. There are those who are on the front lines in positions of power who are able to make changes in governing. There are those who are banding together, demonstrating to have their voices heard. And there are those who are quietly working behind the scenes to create anew. All are important Conscious Choices that are making a difference to create a better world for all of humanity.

Facing the Challenges of Transformation

These days the media is rife with ghastly news and it continues to build more and more upon itself. Their job no longer seems to report the news. Rather to stir up more drama in order to sell their words. It has become so exhaustive I have turned it all off. Glancing at a few headlines per day is all I need to keep myself abreast of what’s happening in the world. By doing so, I get to decide what is important in my life, not the hypnosis of the media.

Hidden in the background of all this hype, I have been finding tidbits of news that excite me. These are not the predominate headlines, but if one looks below the surface, you can find them. The primary headlines that call my attention are the scientific articles.

Did you know?

  • Our entire solar system, which is circling its own central sun, is in a totally different space in the universe than it was 100 years ago. New planets, dwarf planets, astroids, comets, and unnamed spacial bodies are being discovered everyday.
  • We are traveling through a photon belt of light particles that are raising the vibration of the planet and initiating planetary transformations as demonstrated by all the current earth and climate changes. Scientists have also discovered changes in all the other planets in our solar system.
  • As the vibration of the planet is rising, measured by the Schuman Resonance, so is the vibration of the physical body, which is also in the state of transformation, which attributes to the abundance of unusual aches and pains of our bodies.
  • Time is speeding up so fast it is beginning to warp, no longer maintaining the old linear timelines. As a result we are feeling disoriented, with no idea of what time of day it is, loss of chunks of time, or extension of extra long days.
  • As time speeds up, the time/space continuum is changing and we are in the process of making a jump from a duality based reality into the quantum, which only operates in the present moment, void of past or future. It feels like we are walking in oscillating realities, much like dementia, with loss of memory and nothing to hold onto anymore.

This is only a small list of what science is now discovering. These are exciting times of discovery and transformation for humanity and all living beings throughout the cosmos!

There are times my human mind is finding these paramount transformations to be very challenging. Especially since so much is falling away and there is nothing to hold onto anymore. I have to keep reminding myself that I am not my human mind. I am SO much more than a human mind. With each expansion of consciousness I am remembering more of Who I AM each and every day.

There are many gifts being offered during these transformations, if we are willing to slow down and realize them. These periods of time warps and oscillating realities remove us from our old habits and patterns. Thus, creating space to allow the Presence of the Soul to anchor more fully into our physical bodies.

It has always been the job of the Soul to distill all our experiences into our own divine Wisdom. The loss of memory is not actually a loss. What we are losing are the “stories” and emotions created by the human mind. What we are gaining is the Wisdom being distilled by the Soul from all of our experiences. When one speaks of an old Soul, it is one who has gained the Wisdom of many experiences.

This distillation of our human experiences is the natural process that happens during the process of human death as we transition from the physical to the non-physical. In this lifetime, we are being offered the rare gift of being able to fully commune with our Soul’s Wisdom while still in our physical bodies. In order to do so, one must be willing to step away from the media and the collective consciousness, go within one’s self where the Soul resides, and allow these natural and innate transformations to take place without the resistance of the human mind.

Herein lies the challenge. For the human mind has been running its program for eons of time. It knows no other way. The only way to break free of the old programing is to break free of the old time/space continuum where the program is running.

THIS is what we are now experiencing as we are floating through the photon belt, with the rising vibration of the planet and our physical bodies. It can be a natural process if we allow it to be. For it IS happening, whether we are aware of it or not. The only thing keeping it from happening is attempting to hold onto the old, which creates resistance to allowing the new.

Very few humans are even aware of these transformations, and many who are aware are reacting with fear. There is an element of death as we transition from one state of consciousness to another with this ensuing quantum leap. And most humans fear death. Adding the factor that as the vibration of the body increases, this vibration feels foreign to the limbic brain, whose job is to keep us safe. (see this prior article about the limbic brain) The entire neurological system goes into fight or fight mode, causing irritability within ourselves and amongst other people. It requires us to shift our attention from the outside world to our inner world and do what we can to soothe our physicality during these transitions.

The world must go through its own transformation as does each individual person. There is no normalcy to our daily lives anymore. Herein lies the challenge: Not to attempt to return to the old normalcy. But to continually re-mind our selves of the illustrious beings that We truly Are, beings who have simply forgotten that we are the I AM of All-That-Is. We are the creators of the new simply by being Present in the fullness of Who We Are.

It is only through my own perception that I am able to experience peace in the world and that peace resonates from within me. As I savor the the Peace that passeth all understanding I become the Peace of the World. Herein lies my peace during these challenging times. (see this prior article about insuring our peace )

Big hugs to all of you who persist in carrying forth continual expanded consciousness. And an abundance of gratitude for your “Presence” here, for we are the reminders and reflections for each other to carry forth in Love and Joy.

Return of the Rainbow Tribes

I was guided by White Buffalo Calf Woman to share this today as all of the 12 sacred rays are swirling in our energy fields. May you be blessed by these energies and may her words soothe the heartbreak of the past as we rise into new revelations of Love.

“On the initial days after the birth of this planet, the dazzling sun shone upon it with a multitude of colors streaming from the original twelve sacred rays of the Primal Creator. Each ray carried its own unique vibration, sound, and color. As they danced together, they whirled and twirled glorious ethereal art and music beyond our imagination.

As the energies matured, the elements manifested as fire, water, earth, and air. Nature became the proliferation we’re accustomed to today. Fabulous beings of light walked upon this earth embodying an amalgamation of the twelve sacred rays.

However, according to the divine plan, as the density of the planet increased, human awareness decreased. Some of the higher more refined vibrations were no longer sustainable in this dense environment. So one by one, many of these rays disappeared from human perception, but continued to hold their sacred space for the eventual planetary ascension as we progressed through the natural cosmic cycle. As a result, the planet fell into third-dimensional duality and only four primary rays remain.

As many of the ancient prophecies predicted, the day would come when the rainbow tribes would once again reunite and dance together in a golden age of harmony, creating art and music beyond anything this planet has ever experienced before. However, in order for that to occur, all twelve sacred rays need to be grounded in the earth’s core.

Although all the rays are held within the cellular memory of every being on the planet, one ray is always more prevalent than the others for each of us. Thus, each being responds to life from that dominant ray. Their passion, purpose, and gifts to the world have evolved from this one specific ray. Up until now, only a limited number of rays have been active because the density of our planet could not support the more refined vibrations.

To your dismay, some of the rays you have been carrying have felt dissonant in your life because there has been no resonance for them here on earth. You have never understood the way human beings think and act, for you have a totally different perspective of life. With the grounding of the twelve rays, the hidden complementary rays will act as harmonizers. With this shift in vibration, you will be able to fully relax into your human body and enjoy the depth of life to its fullest.

Today, everything is in the process of changing. The expanded vibration of the planet can now support all these frequencies. By anchoring these vibrations in the core of mother earth, the missing rays become reactivated to open new potentials that will benefit all of mankind.

These harmonizing vibrations transcend the illusions of separation and duality. Thus, we shall walk together in harmony on the sacred path of peace across all cultural boundaries. We will begin to initiate the laying down of weapons, living in harmlessness, in balance with all beings, and working side by side to enhance life.

The rainbow tribes are gathering once again. It is time to birth the new reality that has been written in the prophecies passed down through eons of time. This is the precipice upon which we now stand as the Universe fully opens to us once again.” ~White Buffalo Calf Woman~

Gratitude for the artwork by Amanda Wills

Spiritually Coming of Age

Today’s technology has expanded us to new levels of communication allowing us to connect with others around the world. With the current pandemic we have been unable to gather in person. There has been a sadness for the lack of personal touch. A loss of hugs and ability to look eye to eye. At the same time, it has challenged us to develop and open new avenues for coming together in ways we may not have done in the past.

The ability to create events and gatherings to attend in person have momentarily come to a halt. But with technologies like zoom, youtube, and facebook “live”, we are able to reach out globally beyond our local communities. Social media allows anyone to come online to speak live, in the moment. There is no need for creating programs, pre-planning, or advertising. This is particularly supportive of our spiritual community. Anyone can spontaneously speak from the heart in response to the current events or energies that are effecting all of us. They no longer need to be famous spiritual teachers with established platforms. For are we not all teachers, each in our own unique ways?

Several “live” facebook videos came to my attention in the past few days. With that came a welcome realization for which I am very grateful.

Born as a baby boomer, our counterculture generation has been attributed as the spiritual awakeners with our messages of Love and Peace. According to Carlos Santana, ”The ’60s were a leap in human consciousness. Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, they led a revolution of conscience.” And that legacy continues to permeate society.

Our freedom of expression blasted through society’s boundaries with sex, drugs, and rock ’n roll. We initiated social, economic and political equality with the civil rights movement, women’s empowerment, global travel, and we landed on the moon. Technology was introduced that has become mainstream today, from the first telephones and televisions to present day iPhones.

The youthful proponents of counterculture, known as the hippies, disapproved of the modern world so much many dropped out of formal religions and sought refuge from it in communes and mystical religions. Thus, the New Age was born.

We opened the doors and all our spiritual work paved the way for new generations to step in. A few years ago, I and many others of my age reached a point in which we knew we were done! It was time for a change in roles. We had done our part and the world was ready for us to hand our torches off to the new ones.

We have come of age. We have become the elders of the tribe of humanity. We are the grandmothers and grandfathers who continue to hold the vision and the wisdom. Within our maturity we have found inner peace, tranquility, and the freedom to listen quietly without judgement. Speaking when spoken to without the need to profess or pontificate.

Indeed, there are still those who are choosing to be out in the global world. And there are those who are simply here to shine their light and share their love via simple acts of kindness in the midst of turmoil for those who are lost in the darkness. There are many in our generation who have chosen to simplify life and retire to truly enjoy life much like the grandparents who enjoy their grandkids beyond the need to parent them. Each has their own unique soul path and each is needed as part of the whole.

During my spiritual journey, I have journaled most of my experiences and distilled “wisdom”, much of it in the form of poetry. In the past few years, I have stepped into my new role by publishing many of my writings in numerous books. (available on Amazon @ www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard ) What a joy it is to revisit these pearls of wisdom during the publishing process. But I have no desire or passion to step into the spotlight. For I have turned that over to the new ones.

Watching recent “live” videos, I look at the ones who have taken up the torch and revel in how amazing they are! They too have “Come of Age”. We opened the doors and they didn’t hesitate to step in with a different perception of life, free of our old baggage. They are fresh and new. They are wired differently. They are pure of heart.

Our world is in the mist of a major transformation. Duality is struggling to draw to a close. Although many humans are more open, others are more closed . Therein lies the chaos of present day. But these new ones are solid in their “Presence”. Their spiritual messages are no longer about New Age teachings or those from the dusty old tomes of ancient masters. They are adeptly responding to present day life in the midst of transition. And they are doing a stellar job of it!

So I am here to honor each of you. Those who have chosen to pass on the torch. And those who have taken up the torch and stepped out in ways our generation was not prepared to do.

Bravo Beloveds! You bring a whole new level of wisdom to the forefront. I am very grateful to be one of the observers in the peanut gallery right now. Enjoying life, adding my wisdom when called upon, and celebrating all the transformational changes that are taking place in this amazing lifetime for all of humanity. As we ALL Come of Age!

Energy in Motion

For the past several weeks I feel as though I have been living in a fog. Although I’ve experienced numerous blips of this fogginess over the past few years, I’ve never experienced it for such a long span of time. Nothing stimulates my interest and nothing feels very satisfying. It’s been much like the movie “Groundhog Day” where I get up, get dressed, eat a few meals, move through my usual routine, then return to bed. Get up the next day and repeat.

At the same time. . . I’m living an oxymoron where life feels totally unstable. There is flagrant instability with global weather, world events, and systems collapsing all around us. But I am experiencing it even more so within my own life. It feels like I’ve had a full memory wipe out, unable to grasp onto even a tidbit of information to make sense of anything. And surprisingly, I have been functioning just fine. In fact, my life is flowing quite smoothly. Perhaps because I have no memory or expectations within this fog with which to judge anything.

This morning I finally awoke feeling much more clear and present in my body. At first I thought I had been floundering out of my body because everything has felt floaty and wobbly. I now realize I have been acclimating to a new way of being with the realization that nothing in life is static, even though it may appear to be and I have grown accustomed to engaging with energy from this erroneous belief.

In reality: Energy is in constant motion. Life is continually changing. Otherwise we would all be dead and gone.

Instead of attempting to ground with the earth, or into my physical body, I realize my consciousness has expanded into what feels like a very wobbly space compared to how I have been living all of my life. I am reacting very differently to the flow of energy. I no longer see or experience things with the same stability with which I have been familiar. It appears to me that humanity’s dissatisfaction and suffering is all rooted in our attempt to hold everything in place. But, nothing is static. Instead, energy is in constant motion. Life is in constant motion.

I have awoken feeling content, lighter, more at ease. I’m no longer experiencing energy as I have been accustomed and my human self is acclimating to this newness. I no longer need to figure things out. The search is over. I don’t need to know how things work because energy is in service to me in a new and different way in each and every moment. There are no repeats, nothing to fix, no need to get anything right, as I have been attempting to do for most of my life. Instead, I’m living a life of infinite new potentials.

All our lives, everything we’ve ever done has been for the purpose of feeling love, peace, joy, and contentment. So why not simply BE those things without the need to “do” something to attain them. Because in the end, they are not attainable. They are in fact, Who We Are. And the way they express is changing in each given moment. There is nothing I need do, other than choose.

THIS is the new ME, My Energy, sovereign, free, and clear in every New moment.

Choosing Your Seat in the World Theater

I think we can all agree that we have never seen the world in such chaos! From politics to pandemics and everything in between. The collective emotions range from fear to compassion streaming through our psyche like the whirlwinds of a hurricane. Fear of dying, fear of losing control, fear of survival, fear of getting ill, fear of losing our freedoms. . . Such are the multitude of fears running rampant. Simultaneously, there are moments of quiet and stillness, likened to being in the eye of the storm because we are unable to navigate the world outside of our own abodes due to communities being on lockdown.

With all of this going on around us, we DO have choice, even though we may think we have lost it. We can choose to engage in fear and anger, or we can choose to create our own reality from that quiet still point within each of us.

I share with you this very lucid dream I recently experienced:

I am sitting in the most decadent royal box seat of a theater surrounded by multiple stages. There are numerous plays going on simultaneously upon each of these stages with the most realistic backdrops I have ever seen. What a deal! One ticket and multiple shows! I get to choose which plays to watch. There are times I am drawn into a particular drama, fully engaged with the storyline. There are other times I’m observing several stages simultaneously. There are times I create my own character and walk into the play, remain in the story as long as I choose, and then exit stage right. And there are times I settle into my plush seat with a glass of champagne and simply observe it all.

In the wee hours of the morning, in my semi-awakened state of being, I realized THIS, this is how I am experiencing life now. I am observing the world as a theater with many different stages. I’m aware that each person has chosen their role in their own storyline. Some are playing their parts consciously, others are unconsciously following someone else’s script. No matter how many stages are playing out, I get to be the unbiased observer. I can choose whether or not to engage in any of the ongoing dramas, some of which have been playing out for eons of time. Whereas, others are newly created narratives in search of good reviews. Or, I can choose the joy of skipping through fields of daisies, splashing through puddles, and singing with the wind, unaware of anything other than this precious moment.

No matter what is going on in the World Theater, I get to choose my own seat. Whether it be as an observer in the royal box, one of the seats on the main floor with family and friends, or a character on any one of the numerous stages. One ticket to planet Earth, many choices! As such, I get to create my own reality within each and every moment.

The Alchemy of Shining the Light

I read something the other day that has been pulling on my heart stings for several days. At the time I read it, I knew it wasn’t my job to attempt to “fix” it, so I blessed it and moved on. But it just kept nagging at me. So, I sat down quietly and felt into the situation from a more expanded consciousness.

What I observed was a “collective consciousness”. This situation was not a one time event, which I already knew. What I did not realize is that there is a collective consciousness surrounding the context of this scenario which allows this atrocity to appear normal to those who are acting it out. This isn’t only true for the scenario I was observing. It is true for many other scenarios that humans are experiencing on the planet right now, be it political, religious, weather, social, or personal.

Over the years, events that were initiated thousands of years ago have held an energy that has continued to build and expand. There is a collective consciousness that forms, grows, and often solidifies as well. Since we, as humans, do not think in terms of “consciousness”, it’s all hidden below the surface. After years of acting them out, they become normalized, and people no longer question them. Some of these are of a very positive nature. Many are not.

The situation that was nagging at me is one of a destructive nature. The more I observed this “collective consciousness”, the more I understood the root of it. Please understand I was simply observing. I was not taking on this energy. I was not interfering with this energy. I was simply observing. The more I observed, the more clear it became there wasn’t any action I could safely take. But, there was something I could do. I could shine my Light.

And that is exactly what I did. I went into meditation and focused on this particular “collective consciousness” to Shine my Light. I simply sat with this for about 15 minutes and observed. The longer I was present, the less dense it became. Again, I repeat, I did not engage with the energy. I did not interfere, I did not set any intentions, nor did I say any mantras. I simply allowed my Light to shine into this “collective consciousness”. Later that day, I was drawn to repeat the process. This time I noticed the “collective consciousness” was far less dense. It had significantly lightened.

Anyone who does not understand energy may ask: What good does this do? Shinning the Light?

Shining the Light acts just like turning on the light in a dark closet. All of a sudden you, and everyone else will see what’s been hidden in the nooks and crannies. In this case, that includes the general population as well as the perpetrators, who as a result will be seeing and experiencing from a different perspective. Once something is seen, it can no longer be unseen.

THIS is what is happening on our planet right now! The Light is exposing all that has been unseen. And what a messy chaos that creates as people rise up in arms attempting to fix antiquated patterns that have been accepted as normal. When in fact, they are not normal for the loving caring humans that we are at our core.

From the scientific perspective of energy: The lighter something becomes, the easier it is to dissolve and return to neutral. THIS is the Alchemy of Light. This is true for any situation, belief, or any “collective consciousness”.

We all have those things that pull at our heart strings. Whether it be personal, or global. If we take a step back, we can follow the threads to a few core root causes. And from those roots have grown a “collective consciousness”. There are many who have taken to the streets to protest. There are those who are taking direct action. There are those who are fighting the good fight. And I say, Bravo to all of you!

I would now like to introduce another way to heal ourselves and the planet. That is by utilizing the “Alchemy of Shining the Light”. It takes a lot of effort to continue picking at the small things that need fixing and there seems to be a never ending stream of them. However, by simply Shining Your Light, whether it be in meditation or by walking down the street, you are enlightening the “mass consciousness”. And if you are called to a particular cause, I suggest you expand your consciousness to envision that particular “collective consciousness” and simply shine your Light. Not with any particular intention, because then you are interfering with the innate energetic process. Rather with the simplicity of utilizing the Alchemy of Light. By doing so, not only are you lessening the density of the “collective consciousness”, you become the Lighthouse, exposing the perils and creating an enlightened path of grace to safe harbor for those in need, each on their own unique soul journey.

If you are having trouble being a neutral observer, I suggest you read my prior post “New Roles of Compassion” which will assist you in doing so. You can find that post here: https://sharonlynshepard.wordpress.com/2017/08/31/new-roles-of-compassion/

So, my Beloveds. Those of you who are disgusted with the current state of the world. Those of you who are worn out trying to save the world. Those of you who have had to withdraw from the chaos. I invite you to consciously engage in the Alchemy of Shining the Light. Not only will you become lighter and more joyful, but the world around you will lighten up as well. And to all of you who are already doing so, I bow in honor of you with a song in my heart.

Join me on the Adventure of Awakening

64a46ab17e61bef21f9c3fbbab5290a8 copy

“It is the best of times and the worst of times.” Because humanity is rooted in duality, these words from Charles Dickens continue to recycle and ring true. I believe this time in history is even more challenging than Charles Dickens experienced. Why? Because time has been speeding up. Instead of our process being spread across hundreds of years, it’s all coming to the surface simultaneously in the here and now.

As for the best of times, there are far more humans who are awakened, enlightened, and conscious than ever before. As for the worst of times, the majority of humanity is suffering and more challenged than ever as they attempt to hang onto and defend their old programing, rather than open to what is very quickly evolving.

When I scan my facebook newsfeed, I see this split in humanity very clearly. Even those who call themselves Lightworkers are struggling and seduced into the fray, especially those who are newly awakened.

I have very deep compassion for all of humanity during these times of turmoil. As someone who has already gone through the Awakening process I ask myself, “What can I do to help? How can I best assist without jumping into the frying pan? For as Albert Einstein said, “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”

As I was pondering the current state of humanity, I recall how difficult it was for me to step away from the programing and status quo I had been living all my life. For me it required a drastic step in 1999, when I left everything and everyone behind to move to Spain from the US. Moving to a foreign country, culture, and language (which I did not speak), without knowing anyone forced me to depend upon my own sovereign self and open to new potentials, unlike those to which I had grown accustomed. Although the Journey of Awakening was challenging, I will always be grateful for all the support I received along the way.

Looking back on it, I realize I am now in a position to support others by sharing my personal story which holds the grace, compassion, and guidance to soothe and support the journey for others. I offer an invitation to join me on this adventure of awakening to the realizations of Love that continue to carry me through life from an ever evolving level of expanded consciousness; from a new level of thinking, as Einstein refers to it.

Although I have experienced every step of this journey of awakening, if you’ve heard the call, it’s also your journey. Indeed, how we experience this journey will differ, for each of our soul paths are unique. But perhaps my experiences will stir something deep within you and support you to follow that yearning. Are you willing to dive into the depth of your heart with me to discover the juicy passion and divinity of your authentic Self? If so, jump into the passenger seat of my little red convertible as together we traverse the breathtaking vistas of Spain and southern France to discover the mystery of Love, our true Authentic Self, and the reality of miracles that will continue to evolve.

I feel as though the year 2020 is inviting us to embark on a new adventure of awakening with an unprecedented expansion of consciousness. This time: no airplane, no baggage. Instead, it is my “point of consciousness” that is evolving with an abundance of new potentials revealing themselves to me in every new moment.
I will always be grateful for all the guidance and support I have received along the way. And, I am even more grateful that I now trust my own Inner Wisdom that continues to spur me forward. That, my Beloveds in my wish for you!

Therefore, I invite you to join me on this adventure of awakening by reading my memoir, “Revelations of Love” which is available in paperback and ebook HERE. I promise you, your newly awakened revelations will continue long after you close the last pages of the book.

Freedom from Mass Consciousness

Joy of Life by Francois Girard

What a diet of information, mis-information, advice, and confusion we are being fed these days. Accusations and judgments are lashing out at us like laser swords. Every moment is a battle for the mind trying to find balance in a world of crazy making constantly being stirred up by the media.

Read that sentence again. And then feel into your own energy. If it’s like mine, it’s zinging as if I’ve inhaled a whole pot of caffeinated coffee. That coffee you needed to pull you out of the numbness of the mind when it finally shuts down in overwhelm.

Those seem to be the two extremes of the autonomic nervous system these days: overwhelm or shutdown. Not much in-between. Not much rational intelligent functioning, nor peace of mind.

I don’t own a tv, nor read the newspapers, and my time spent on social media is limited, so I’m not getting the high dosage that most of humanity is being fed. I don’t have my head in the sand. I am aware of what’s going on in our crazy world. But, I do admit to wearing rose colored glasses because I prefer to see the world in full color rather than the extremes of black or white, right or wrong, good or bad. Instead, I refer to my own inner wisdom and use my own discernment rather than being fed by the mainstream media.

But even I get caught up in this frenzy from time to time. Last evening, I read a very benign post on facebook written by a friend who was reporting an eye witness report of what was happening at a protest in Portland. This person observed several groups of well behaved, mask wearing, social distancing people such as doctors, nurses, teachers, first responders, grocery clerks, mothers with children, and such, all walking peacefully through the streets carrying signs in the designated area. Until, late in the evening when a very small group of derelicts purposefully stirred up violence (which I have no need to describe) waging war with the police patrol. THAT brief moment of violence is what the media reported. There was no word about the peaceful protest earlier in the day. Just the violence!

This morning I awoke from a fitful night of violent dreams. I don’t dream about violence, so this was very abnormal for me. I then recalled the fb post that instigated that. Although it was a well-intentioned post (and I do not fault the person who posted), just reading about the violence sucked me into an emotional reaction. I fell asleep wondering what kind of human beings we are fostering on this planet whose only purpose is to inflict violence upon all the rest of us. That’s all it took to get sucked into the demented clusterfuck of the mass consciousness and the source of my violent dreams.

Once I realized this, I was able to take a few deep breaths and break free of the collective energetic field of mass consciousness. I was able to shift my sovereign “Point of Consciousness” per my own choice. No longer embroiled in this energy, I am free to engage the purity of my own wisdom rather than what is being force fed to us. No longer embroiled in this energy, I am free to engage my compassion rather than my judgement. No longer embroiled in this energy, I am free to create from new potentials rather than wallow in the brokenness of an old world.

Seeing oneself as a victim to a virus, government, media, or anyone else locks oneself in a state of resistance, blocking our infinite free flowing Source energy rather than allowing new potentials to present themselves.

So, I invite you to take a break from the media, take a few deep breaths, and disengage from the mass consciousness. It will require making some life changes and shifting your focus to a more conscious and enlightened reality. Indeed, it will take practice to continually shift your “point of consciousness” and claim your freedom from the collective.

With enough practice, freeing ourselves from the mass consciousness, our autonomic nervous systems will readjust and find a new balance free of fear based manipulation. And we will become the Master Creators of a new collective consciousness where peace, love, harmony, and joy become the natural way of life.

Navigating Multi-dimensionality

Josephine Wall

Learning how to navigate multi-dimensionality is becoming the new adventure as we are awakening to more of our selves than mere flesh and bones controlled by the human mind.

A few weeks ago as I was walking out the lane to the mailbox, I experienced what I called “Enchantment” because I felt like I has walked into an enchanted world with all my senses ultra expanded. The magenta rhododendron flowers were emitting a neon light, with a luscious scent, and I could hear their song of blossoming. Humming birds and bees were fluttering in front of me leading the way like pied pipers. The air was aglitter with faerie dust. I could sense the roots of the ancient cedar trees sinking their roots deep into the ground in search of more moisture. Everything smelled of fresh fecund earthiness. My feet were effortlessly gliding along, not quite touching the ground. And yet, I was fully grounded in my physical body.

I remained in this state of consciousness for several days, allowing but not attempting to maintain it. The more I engaged in 3d activities, the more it faded, but I always felt it on the periphery of my awareness. Since then, it has been fading in and out. With each embodied experience it feels more real.

It feels much like the Mists of Avalon only reversed. In the Mists of Avalon, we lived in 3d and had to pull back the veils with our magic to enter this expanded reality. At that time the planet was dropping into more density. Now, the cycle has reversed and we are naturally re-awakening to this expanded reality as our natural way of BEing.

How I have been experiencing this

When I am relaxed, with no agendas, I am naturally living “Enchantment”. When I disengage from the chatter of the mind, my senses are super engaged. Colors are brighter, birdsong sweeter, food more sensually delicious, feelings more blissful, joy is in a constant dance with whatever I am doing.

The challenge is navigating the 3d when in this state. This morning I disassembled my coffee press pot to clean it and stared at it for 5 minutes trying to remember how to reassemble it (something I have done numerous times). That was a bit disconcerting until I began laughing at myself. In a flash it was all back together and I was sipping my brew, while still in “Enchantment”. Thus I have realized laughter is the bridge between these worlds.

I have been learning how to do “enchanted” laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, vacuuming, and even toilet cleaning. How? By releasing all judgement about such chores and singing my way through them. I remember as a kid, mom used to wax the hardwood floors and it was our job to buff them. She gave each of us a rag and turned on some music. We turned that floor into a skating rink, buffing while we skated and danced to the music. That’s how housecleaning has become to me, an enchanted way to dance away the dust.

What I have learned thus far

We are naturally multi-dimensional beings. As the vibration of the plant continues to rise, so does the vibration of the human, and our expanded awareness. Once we allow ourselves to relax, our consciousness naturally expands.

We all have choice. We can choose our “Point of Consciousness”. Up until now, most humans are locked into one dimension because of their constant busyness within it to maintain it. As humanity becomes aware of a more expanded consciousness, it is up to each human to choose how they wish to navigate this expanded reality. Some will close down in fear. Others will open up and allow All-That-Is to reveal itself.

There is no right or wrong. There is no rush to the finish line. Because this new reality is free of judgement and free of time. It is a personal sacred choice, for each of us are on our own unique soul path. There are no lessons, books, or teachings. It happens naturally by simplifying life, relaxing the overly cluttered mind enough to make space, and then allowing the experience of expansion to become our new reality one moment at a time. I would venture to say the easiest way to tap into this awareness may be to tap into our childhood memories of magic and wonderment.

The more humans that begin living this new reality, the easier it becomes for the collective humanity to visualize a new way of being, free of the old mind matrix. Eventually, we will all become “enchanted” into this new way of being because we are tired of the old power games that have been playing out on the planet for eons. Multi-dimensionality will effortlessly become our new reality simply by choice.

And so Beloveds, once again, I have navigated my multi-dimensionality with savvy, able to write these words while “Enchanted”. I am assured that all of us will be doing so with new finesse if we so desire. What a magnificent enchanting world I foresee!!!
