Passing of the Queen: Realizing our Sovereignty

The death of Queen Elizabeth II has effected me far more than I would have anticipated. I am not British. I have no opinion of the monarchy. What I am experiencing is the passing of a great woman who has surrendered her personal life of nearly 100 years to be in service to the people of her country.

My initial feeling was one of sadness, for her family and the global masses who are in mourning. The following morning, I sensed a void in the collective consciousness where she has held a balance of power with grace for over seven decades, longer than most of our lifetimes, amidst so much chaos within her own family and the world at large.

Indeed, there are those who have an aversion to the monarchy with movements to have the monarchy dissolved for a multitude of reasons. There are those who believe ruling should come from the people, by the people, rather than passed down through a particular bloodline. There are those who are perturbed their taxes are paying to support the excessive lifestyle of the royalty. And there are those who are simply looking for someone else to blame for the woes in their own lives.

The media, in true form, took this opportunity to express the negatives of the queen and the royal family, always anxious to stir up the next morsel of drama for the populous to feed upon. Some of the comments on social media have even claimed she was a dark being. THIS from light workers! At first some of those comments upset me. (Make no mistake, I am not a polyanna with my head in the sand, although I proudly wear a pair of rose colored glasses from time to time.)

Indeed, the duality of dark vs. light was part of my/our journey. But it has served its purpose and it’s time to move beyond after eons of time. THAT is why we have been called to be on the planet at this time!

My response to these comments is this:
Have we, as light workers, not gone beyond the scope of duality’s judgments? Are we still professing and feeding duality’s battles with the dark and light? Do we not realize that we each have the ability to go beyond duality? Do we not realize who we truly are as All-That-Is?

I read a passage on fb this morning by Thomas Skov Olsen that speaks to this with such profound clarity:

“Try to let this cloud over there represent me, and this cloud over here represent you. If that is how we see ourselves, then we appear as separate and alone, floating apart in a vast blue void. But the sky is what contains the clouds. The sky is as our common being, existence in itself, in which appears a patchwork of all the elements and all that which is subject to change. The sky, how ever, does not change, though it be night or day, or whether thunder, sunshine or rainbows display upon it, the sky in itself remains the same, unshaken and uncracked by lightning or quaking clouds.The sky represents our inner being, which is interconnected. We, that is, our togethernesses, our shared aliveness, which is without the biases of “you” and “me”, this form or that form. The sky is one sky, though it contains many horizons, whereupon the sun and the moon dawns and sets. In a similar way, life contains many lives, but is one life nonetheless.”
~ Thomas Skov Olsen ~

After reading this passage I have come to realize, each of us are like the clouds in a sky of ALL THAT IS. We are ALL Sovereign beings and creators of our own Reality. Whatever one is feeling or experiencing is personally theirs, to be honored as their own unique soul path without judgment.

As Sovereign beings, we each have choice:
Which of those clouds do you choose to interact with as a conscious creator with ALL THAT IS. . . . and which of those clouds do you allow to pass by without the need to judge.

Living within our Chosen Apps

Technology has taken the forefront in so many areas of our lives. It’s amazing how much of our lives revolve around the the devices we carry around in our pockets through the apps we’ve downloaded onto these devices. We are able to communicate with others via voice, email and social media, keep appointments via reminders from our calendar, shop online, read books, stream music and videos, manage our finances, navigate with insta maps, play virtual reality games, and so much more! All of this is managed through itybbtty icons of apps!

I am a prolific dreamer, but it’s rare that I dream about technology so this bout of Dreamtime lingered with me into my present day life. . . .

Dreamtime:
“This dream began with me sorting a new harvest of apples into two different boxes. Once the sorting was complete, I met with a longtime friend of mine whom I hadn’t seen in a very long time. We decided to take a walk around the lovely lake in the neighborhood. She spoke with satisfaction about how happy she is with the life she has created for herself.

While she was speaking, I had a vision of pockets of her life arranged like apps on an iPad which she tapped into for certain activities of her life. After awhile we found a bench and sat together quietly, each in our own thoughts. During this time my own apps came into view for me. I realized the apps of my life were very different from hers, although they had been much the same during the time we had spent together in years past. In that moment, I knew I was complete with this current life and it was time for me to walk away with complete satisfaction in a life well lived, ready to move onto a new life.

I realized that had been the purpose of sorting through this new harvest of apples. (Eve in the Garden of Eden?) All the apples equally delicious, just two different boxes, with two different purposes. One was my old life, the other is the new. Once we returned from our walk, I gifted my friend with one of the boxes of apples as a departure gift, knowing I would never see her again. I gave her a hug and wished her well, knowing our life together was complete. All was in divine order and I was free to go with my new box of apples.”

As I was awakening in the morning, drifting in that space between dreamtime and being fully awake, I had a vision of my multitude of apps. There were those I’ve deleted and those I am living now. I became aware of how content and complete I am with my current life. . . . and. . . . it is time for me to create a new cluster of multi-dimensional apps for myself. I realized, THIS is what I have been doing in the past few months amidst my dreamtime whenever I’ve been “pulled out” of my current consciousness during my numerous naps. All of this is happening in my dreamtime because my human mind can not conceive of the new life I am creating. Nor does my new reality have any relevance to the life I have been living. Thus, it is time to cultivate a whole new set of apps.

I awoke feeling so at peace, knowing I have already made this shift. My life may not look much different on the outside. But I feel totally different on the inside. Sovereign, free, and at peace. At peace with the life that is complete and at peace with a life that has yet to present its form. THIS transformation is what I have come here to experience and I can not do so as long as I am engaged with my prior life.

There is nothing from my preceding life nor other’s experiences that can give me the satisfaction that living multi-dimensionally as an embodied Lightbody does. And, whenever I choose to experience any of the sensual enjoyment from my past, all I need do is envision myself in that timeline without the cumbersome need to physically move my body through the motions. What a delicious gift!

I also realize if there are any new apps I choose to add in my life, those potentials will effortlessly come to me. There is no need for me to go looking for more, for I have everything I need right here, right now. I simply need to relax and allow my human mind the time it needs to catch up and integrate this transmutation with divine timing.

More importantly, I had visions of clusters of apps representing other people’s life choices, much as I did with my dear friend in my dreamtime. Just as I do not judge what apps others have chosen for their own devices, nor is it my place to judge how they choose to live their lives within their chosen apps. For we are all sovereign beings, each on our own unique soul path, here for the fully embodied experience of life.

Resurrection of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine

My dreamtime has been very prolific over the past few weeks with the same recurrent theme. Although the dreams themselves have differed, the crux of the dreams has been the same.

In each dream, I have been in a relationship with a man who was subtly attempting to control me. It became obvious that we have been playing this “game” since the beginning of the relationship and he expected it to continue as such. However, in each instance, I had awakened to the Divine Feminine within me, no longer willing to continue the role of obedience and subservience. At some point when I was directed to do something that was not in alignment with my Soul, I withdrew and refused.

In the first few dreams, although I was never physically abused, the men became angry and verbally combative when I was no longer willing to comply to their demands. Since there was no middle ground in which to communicate, I eventually walked away from each of these relationships.

Later in this series of dreams, several of the men were willing to listen to my concerns, but unwilling to make any changes in their lives, assuming they could placate me with gifts and sweet talk. Again, I choose to walk away.

Although there wasn’t any physical abusive, there was emotional injury to both parties in all of these instances. Each was simply following society’s patterning without any awareness of a true and equitable relationship between the Divine Male with the Divine Female. Nor, did either of them have the tools to make the necessary changes in their lives to heal the smoldering unseen wounds to create more loving relationships.

In my most recent dream, the man was not only willing to listen to my concerns, but was asking how to be supportive in creating a more loving, open, and equitable partnership.

As I was contemplating this sequence of dreams, I realized they began with the US supreme court’s overturn of Roe vs. Wade, on June 24, 2022, which attempts to remove women’s rights to her own body.

With that announcement, I initially became very angry. But I also realized it was Love, not anger that would eventually heal this deep wound of separation inflicted upon humanity eons ago and perpetrated by religion. A wound which has finally been brought to light via this government’s attempt at supreme control.

With this awareness, I sat in communion with my Soul asking how to heal this deep wound with Love rather than anger. I now realize these dreams have been the answer to that prayer. Each night in my dreamtime I have been clearing antiquated timelines and programing that have been held in place for eons of time, both personally and collectively, for the resurrection of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine.

After each dream, I awakened to the expanded consciousness of more Love within me and released all that no longer serves me in BEing that Love. Perhaps, the expansion of my Love during these dreams over the past few weeks has effected the players in all of these dreams. Perhaps, there has been an Awakening on the etheric/subconscious level for them personally and collectively as it ripples out into all of humanity.

I have been a “dreamweaver” ever since I was a child. Whenever I don’t know how to approach life from my human perspective, I take my questions into dreamtime in communion with my Soul. It is in this alternate reality, free of any interference from my human mind, that my Soul and I weave new potentials for the highest good, where Love heals all.

It is with deep Love for all of humanity that I share my experience within these dreams and offer this Sacred Gift that has been brought to light as the Resurrection of both the Divine Feminine AND the Divine Masculine. May all of humanity expand in Love and Compassion for each other as we learn new ways of being in relationship with each other in all areas of life. Blessed BE!

Bifurcation: The time of Choice

Busy Busy Dreamtime!
With the proliferation of all of my resent expansive dreams, I have gone beyond trying to interpret or make any sense of them. NOTHING seems to make sense anymore, neither my dreamtime, nor my daily life. Perhaps that’s because life, as we have known it, doesn’t makes any sense to me either.

When I awoke this morning, I felt a deep loss of the world I used to know, both personally and globally. A world that used to bring me joy and satisfaction. But that world has slipped away. Instead, I am seeing all the chaos and disruptions in the world playing out on their individual stages of war, mass killings, withdrawal of human rights, political battles, etc, with people called to action in massive demonstrations. But none of this feels real. It all feels irrelevant to me. Not that I don’t have compassion for those who are experiencing these things. I feel deep compassion. But, I no longer feel part of that world, nor the need to engage and add my energy to it. I no longer belong in the world of chaos.

I have to ask: Is humanity experiencing a collective global healing via all this disruption? Or a bifurcation? And what part am I meant to play in any of this?

The following is the answer I received from my Inner Wisdom according to my personal soul path. Perhaps you may find some relevant words of wisdom here, as well:

In many ways we could say this is a bifurcation as a “point of choice” for every human on the planet at this time. This is an epic year of revelation for humanity. As our light shines more brightly, all that has been hidden in the shadows for eons of time is now being revealed and seen for the very first time, much of it very shocking and overwhelming.

The time has come for each individual to weigh in with their heart and make a choice: whether to continue living within the collective thought matrix as it continues to implode upon itself, or step into the freedom of their own sovereignty.

For many the choice is an easy one, but carrying it out is far more challenging. There are so many entanglements that keep drawing us back into its web: family, friends, careers, health, religion, politics, and group attachments. These are things that have defined who we think ourselves to be. By departing from the collective consciousness, it feels as though all of these people and things become lost to us.
We feel the web dissolving and there is nothing holding life in place anymore. Thus, we feel untethered, floating in a void, in an abyss of the unknown. Now you realize why it is so difficult for humanity to do this!

As uncomfortable and challenging as this is, it is an appropriate phase of transformation. A temporary phase, until we acclimate to this new way of living as sovereign beings, living fully in the present moment, free of the antiquated matrix of old timelines. This is where all our new potentials await. But we can not fully step into the new until we have completely detached from the old.

We each have a choice and we are each on our own personal timeline, even though it will take humanity several years to move through this chaos of disengaging. It will serve you well to remove yourself from all that no longer serves you without comparing yourself to others. What is required is a complete trust in your own soul path. Although this sovereign shift in consciousness requires everyone to do this solo, know that you are never alone. You are more fully present with your Soul and your I AM than you ever have been. Herein lies the wisdom for you to step fully into your new potentials and create anew.

On a soul level you are aware of this. And yet your human aspect has not embodied the true knowing of it as yet. Allow yourself to feel the emptiness as a gift, as the freedom from the perils of the old world. Recall your prior experiences of transitioning from nothingness into form during your initial incarnation and creation of this planet. We are now completing that cycle by returning from substance to nothingness in order to create a new reality in the quantum field, instead of creating via structure and thought via duality.

Take time for a sojourn with your GodSelf. Withdraw from your external world for a period of time, a few hours, days, or even a few weeks. Continue to shift your point of consciousness away from the complications which used to give your human ego sustenance. Make a commitment to your SELF to go deeper via your own Soul expression, be it writing, artwork, music, immersion in nature or simply being in the silence with your own Soul. Herein you will find the true substance of life.

Rest assured, all is well. If you have read this far, it’s because you have already chosen. You are exactly where you need to be. You have reached a point in which there is nothing you need do other than the simple actions required for the comfort of your physical body or anything that expands your joy. Energy is in service to you and everything is being provided that you will ever need. Take pleasure in the simplicity of daily life. Relax and allow your energy to serve you. Simply flow one day at a time, one moment at a time, until you have fully anchored into the new.

There are echos of this message from many others who are on a similar path. So even though you are stepping into your sovereignty, you are not alone. And your presence as a wayshower is important for those who are now awakening simply via your Presence. Although it feels like it has been a long time coming, things are moving very quickly now. Allow the flow to carry you. Be at peace and continue to allow your Soul to lead the way, knowing all is well.

Proud to be a Crone

Today is my 71st birthday. My reflection in the mirror this morning is a bit of a shock. On one hand, I feel the youth of a 50 yr old, so that reflection can’t possibly be me. On the other hand, a 71 year old woman should not look this good first thing in the morning without having combed her hair, sans any make up. I’m not a beauty by society’s standards, but I have always taken good care of my body because I plan on being here for a good long time. And when it’s time to leave the planet, I plan on exiting with the ease and grace of a healthy body.

After my my morning walk through the faerie garden with my cup of tea, I settled in to visit facebook which is teaming with birthday wishes from all my friends. As I’m scanning through my newsfeed, I can’t help but wonder if I am the only one who appears to be getting older? Is humanity regenerating so fast everyone on fb appears to be in their 20s? Or has society demonized aging with such fear that everyone has become obsessed with youthenizing via simulated photo apps? Have we lost our authenticity and delight in ALL we’ve become, including our natural outer appearance, no matter our age?

I am proud to call myself a Crone, with every experience it has taken me to get here. Every softening and facial line has a story to tell. Like all of you, I’ve lived through a LOT of stories, some good, some not so good. And yet they have all been woven into the amazing woman I have become.

The photo I’ve posted here is authentically me at 71 yrs old, crowned with silver strands and my share of laugh lines, totally natural, sans filters. I had to chuckle as the Fae swooped through the photo and made their appearance. After all these years, I’ve become comfortable in my own skin, despite society’s attempts to devalue our personal uniqueness when it comes to beauty. I am healthy and full of vitality, free of the need for any of big pharma’s chemical potions.

There are times I ask myself, how is this possible at such an age? The wisdom of my Inner Being always answers: Because you are aligned with your Divine Self in constant flow with your sovereign self generating energy, energy that’s available to everyone.

Thus, if you aren’t comfortable with the reflection you see in your mirror. Instead of trying to augment your outer appearance, I invite you to close your eyes and go within. Herein you will see your True Beauty, the beauty that proliferates with age rather than diminishes. The beauty that radiates outward and touches everyone. Today, I celebrate being the Crone!!

Raising the Vibrational Energetic Coherence for all Humanity

Last night, as I was falling asleep I experienced a major energetic leap in consciousness. It exploded from my heart so powerfully that I burst out in tears. When I tapped into this energy, I realized the massive group of people who have come together in unity this past week under the banner of the “Truckers Convoy for Freedom” have collectively raised the vibrational energetic coherence for all of humanity!!!

Over the past week, I have been observing the Truckers Convoy for Freedom. As an independent observer, what I have seen is a group of people coming together in unity from all walks of life, all ages, and all races in a peaceful demonstration free of any violence to Celebrate Life after having been deprived of it for the past two years.

As a result of this convoy of committed truckers, people began rallying across the whole of Canada with a common cause, which is now spreading around the entire world. Humans want their freedom and sovereignty.

Over this past week, what I have been feeling is a flourishing of pure JOY. Joy for the Awakening of Humanity as I listen to all the stories of hope from those who have felt oppressed, some of whom were considering suicide, and are finally feeling the freedom to live their lives once again. JOY for those who have been experiencing what many of us have experienced as the dark night of the soul and are now Awakening to more of Who They Are. I am feeling JOY as I observe how humanity is coming together in community to assist one another sharing food and resources no matter their race or background. I am feeling JOY for those who are dancing in the streets allowing their Light to shine.

It is via this JOY expressing through humanity as they’re tossing off the imposed shackles that has raised the vibrational energetic coherence for ALL of humanity. And once raised to this level, there is no going back.

For those who are not familiar with the studies of HeartMath Coherence I invite you to research this cutting edge Heart-Brain science @ www.heartmath.com. Our leaders have been talking about the science of the vaccines and mandates. But they have not taken into account the science of the Heart-Brain connection, which is what is healing humanity in ways beyond the medical procedures and mandates that have been exercised over the past 2 years.

I say Bravo to all who have had the courage to brake free of these antiquated demands of living and are choosing to Live Freely from the Heart. I say Bravo to all the organizers, the truckers, everyone who has shown up on foot, and those who continue to rally on social media to keep the vibe raised! I say Bravo to those who have come together in community, opening their homes, donating money, serving food, tanking up the trucks, shoveling snow, cleaning up trash, playing music in the streets, and handing out heart stickers.

Thank you Truckers and thank you Canadians!
This could not be happening without this peaceful group of people coming together in unity and opening their hearts. From my observation, the dragon is unearthing all the dross that has been hidden and needs to be seen as the media shines its light upon you. Amidst all the roadblocks, chaos, and messiness that constitutes change, what I am observing is humanity’s Great Awakening and it’s spreading around the entire world. Together, we have raised the vibrational energetic coherence for all Humanity.

Climbing the Steps of Ascension

Ascension is much like climbing a flight of stairs. One foot is on the lower step, which is the support for lifting the other foot to the next level. There is a moment when the upper foot hovers in mid-air as the muscles (energy) push it upward to land on the next higher step.

This is what our life journey feels like. One foot in the old, while the other foot is lingering in mid-air on the way to the new. During this time, our consciousness is expanding into what feels like a very wobbly space compared to how we have been living our lives on the lower step.

Once the upper foot feels secure in its new placement, we lift the lower support foot to meet it. The old support system is no longer needed now because we are being supported by the upper foot with a new level of consciousness. With every expansion of consciousness, our Soul distills the Wisdom from each experience, and logs it into our Soul Template. It then unravels and deletes the emotional baggage and stories that have held us in limbo for multiple lifetimes. With our foot securely on the upper step, we can only continue to move forward if we release these extraneous energies, as uncomfortable as they me feel in the moment.

Once both feet are on the same step we are operating from a more expanded view with the clarity of our embodied Soul Wisdom. We are grounded with a new intuitiveness to take care of business. Clean our house, water the garden, go grocery shopping … etc. Because let’s face it, being in limbo can feel kinda spacey, and often inoperative.

Here there is a sense of gratitude for how far we’ve climbed. WE get to decide how long we choose to linger on each step before we raise to the next level of consciousness, because there is always another step awaiting us.

The current vibrations of the planet are amping up. There is less time in-between in which to linger. However, it’s important that you remember you are a Sovereign being with a unique Soul path. There is no herd mentality here with which to keep up with anyone else, nor any spiritual groups. This is your Sovereign Soul path.

As the planetary and cosmic vibrations amp up, the physical body goes through its own transformations. It’s important to honor the body with our own self care. [See my prior post “Monitoring Our Physical Bodies During Transformation” ]

Years ago, I was guided to stop attempting to ground the incoming energies in the old linear way by connecting heaven and earth, nor via the linearity of the chakra system. Energies move in waves and spirals. The energies of the physical body also move in waves. Attempting to direct energy via the human mind only slows down the process or in some cases blocks it completely. Thus, an increase in what is often referred to as ascension symptoms.

I have not been grounding in the old linear way for quite some years. As a result, most of the ascension symptoms have disappeared for me. Indeed, my body feels these transformations. But they are with such ease and grace now that I am flowing “with” them rather than attempting to direct or control energies. Our bodies KNOW what to do, if we relax and ALLOW it to do its prescribed job.

With every expansion of consciousness, 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. I realize energy is in constant motion. Nothing is static. Our dissatisfaction and suffering is rooted in an attempt to hold everything in place, which is impossible because. . . Life is in constant motion. [ See my post “Energy in Motion” ]

So as we are climbing the infinite steps of ascension, it’s important to remember: Ascension is not a goal. It is a journey, a journey of the heart and Soul. Be grateful for every experience for we shall never come this way again.

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.

How We Create Our Own Reality

It’s been a HOT week here in the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures have been soaring into the triple digits, 30 degrees above normal. Most of us don’t have Air-Conditioning because it’s not necessary in this temperate climate. I recall the days we used to joke that summer never began until after the 4th of July. This year summer has sprung with a vengeance, way hotter and way sooner than we have become accustomed. When I went to my closest in search of some cooler clothing, I realized I only have two summer dresses. Two! That should be a clue as to how often I have a call to wear such apparel.

As the media was continually broadcasting “Extreme temperatures for the NW”, and everyone on fb was posting high temperature screen shots while talking about how hot they are, my body immediately reacted by overheating even before the outdoor temperatures reached their zenith. I jumped into action totally focused on attempting to control everything I could do to cool down.

And then this quote from Abraham Hicks popped up with perfect timing:

“We are all Vibrational Beings. You’re like a receiving mechanism that when you set your tuner to the station, you’re going to hear what’s playing. Whatever you are focused upon is the way you set your tuner, and when you focus there for as little as 17 seconds, you activate that vibration within you. Once you activate a vibration within you, Law of Attraction begins responding to that vibration, and you’re off and running — whether it’s something wanted or unwanted.” ~Abraham Hicks~

This is what I call my “Point of Consciousness” and I was particularly reminded of it this week. I realized the more I read about the heat, the more overheated I became. At some point, it became apparent that I simply needed to shift my focus from being hot to something else.

Once I turned off fb and the news broadcasts (re-read that word “broad-cast, is that like casting a spell?) and made a few simple physical adjustments, I distracted myself by choosing a few good books to read.

Voila’!! Once I shifted my Point of Consciousness from panic about the weather, being overheated, and attempting to control my environment . . . to my simple well-being, I became much more comfortable and heat tolerant. My grumpiness dissolved and life resumed its well balanced rhythm once again, irrelevant of the weather.

This is true of everything in our lives. Be it the weather, body’s aches and pains, chaos of the world around us, or other people’s attitudes. Energy naturally seeks resolution, unless we are mucking about with it by trying to fix or control it, which only creates resistance to the natural flow of life. Energy goes where attention flows. By shifting my Point of Consciousness, I am creating that which I do want rather than what I do not want.

The outdoor temperatures have cooled down somewhat with the sweet scent of jasmine wafting in from my balcony. This morning I was able to quietly reflect on my reactions and the result of how I experienced the past few days.

I was once again reminded: THIS is how we create our own reality, victims to nothing!!! Not the weather, the government, social systems, media, relationships, nor other people. WE are sovereign beings, the CREATORS OF OUR OWN REALITY via our own Point of Consciousness.

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.
