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 I 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 while being faced down by 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.

The Healing of Humanity amidst the Chaos

healing

Humanity has had enough!!! We are no longer willing to live in oppression. We are awakening to the greatness of who we are, no longer willing to accept anything less.

We are in epic times. Duality has served its purpose. It’s no longer about what is right and what is wrong, who is right and who is wrong. It’s about how great all of us are, each of us individually and as a collective group of human beings.

The Indigenous people realize this. They have taken a stand at Standing Rock, North Dakota. Although the outpicturing of this is about stopping a pipeline and protecting the water. There is something much grander happening here, something much deeper.

If you only look at the photos streaming through the media, on the surface it appears to be “us” versus “them”. The Natives against the pipeline. What I really see is a return to the greatness of who we are. The Native tribes have gathered in unity. Tribes that at one time were at war with each other. In the past they have been warriors, painted in war paint, protecting their own.

Today they have all come together, once again as warriors, protecting their own. This time what they are protecting is OUR own. That which belongs to all of us, that which we ALL need to survive. . . clean water, clean air, and the fertile earth to grow food.

They are no longer using weapons of destruction. They are using that which has always been at the base of their teachings. They are using Prayer. They are praying for ALL of us. They stand in prayer face to face with soldiers armed with violent weapons. They are praying for Peace.They are praying for the prosperity for all of us. For without the purity of our natural elements we all die.

The Indigenous people all over the world know this. They have preserved these teaching over the centuries, even as we’ve continued to push them off their land. They have come forth to share their teachings for the preservation of the land. More importantly for the preservation of humanity. You see, although the earth will survive no matter what we as humans do. Humanity will not survive if we continue to rape her of the natural elements that our physical bodies need in order to thrive and prosper.

Not only is this a time of awakening. This is a time of healing, for the earth and all of humanity. The indigenous tribes have come together healing their ancestral battles against one another. Healing their anger at the white man who has stripped them of their land and their dignity. And they have invited all of us to join them. In response 500 clergy members prayed along the banks of North Dakota’s Cannonball River with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation in an historic show of interfaith solidarity.  

We have entered the Age of Unity. That does not mean we become one homogenized society. It means we honor the uniqueness in each and every one of us. It means we heal all the ancestral wounds that have kept us from loving one another. It means we celebrate the greatness of humanity, the greatness of who we are. This is true in our personal lives as well as the collective humankind.

We have gone beyond the old world of duality. We will not survive long if we continue judging and pitting “us” against “them”. We can continue to war, fighting battles, protesting what’s wrong in the world, pointing fingers at who done what to who.

Or we can do as Michelle Obama says, “When others go low, we go high.” As the media continues to pit us against one another, the Indigenous people all around the world are rising up in prayer with forgiveness and peace in their hearts. Will you join them?

Are you willing to rise above the drama and chaos and see the truth of who we are? Are you willing to celebrate the Greatness of humanity as brothers and sisters on a planet that offers abundance and prosperity for all of us? This is what is being offered to each and every one of us. This is the healing of humanity that is taking place with the realization that we are all in this together.

This morning I awoke with this song wafting through my consciousness: “This land is my land, this land is your land. . .” May we join in Peace and Prosperity.

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!
