Navigating Expanded Consciousness

930e779b965d1fbcf75f1d4e72b3a764

Although the results of expanding our consciousness are grand and illustrious, this transition is not as easy as one would like it to be. As many of us have been experiencing, these periods of transformation can range from disconcerting to challenging to downright horrid. We often feel like the caterpillar that dissolves into mush before it spreads its beautiful magnificent wings with abilities it never even dreamed possible. 

Our entire solar system, including planet earth, is gravitating to a whole new position in the omniverse, surrounded by accelerated waves of transformation. As a result our consciousness is expanding into a whole new understanding of time and space, as documented by science. Although our Soul is effortlessly flowing with this grandness, our mind is floundering because it doesn’t recognize these new vibrations. In addition, so many of our established beliefs, memories, and habits have been wiped out of our old mindset to make space for the new. Our mind is wandering in this “clear space” looking for something to latch on to, but finding nothing.

It’s as if the train has switched tracks and the mind is searching for the old buildings but finding itself trackless in an expansive ocean. For that is where you are now, in the oceans of pure potentiality, far beyond the mind’s ability to comprehend. But never fear, your first class seat is oh so comfortable. It wraps itself around you. You’re safe and secure in the arms of your Soul. Why not sink back into it, close your eyes and allow your mind to switch tracks. 

That can not happen if you continue searching for the scenery on the old track. Nor will it happen if you allow yourself to get caught in the dramas of mass consciousness as it too moves through these transformations, albeit not by conscious choice. Not only is the old scenery disappearing, but the old systems are no longer being supported by these new vibrations.  There are those who are working hard in attempts to maintain the old which is exacerbating the process and creating even more destruction. Engaging in these attempts to “save humanity” will only make this transition more difficult. It’s like attempting to hang onto your caterpillar legs while birthing new wings. They are not synonymous. It’s best accomplished by allowing these natural transitions to occur of their own accord.

I suggest you close your eyes for a wee bit, take a deep breath, lay your head back, and relax. Realize you have switched tracks and trust the first class ticket your Soul has provided. You are no longer traveling in the baggage compartment. You have everything you need right here within you. Settle in and allow your physical body to acclimate to the vibrational changes, allow your mind to drift. 

When you reopen your eyes, your mind will naturally begin to enjoy the new scenery with exuberant glee, much like stepping off the train at a new destination while on vacation. At first, it may seem like a dream, but soon all of your aspects will be present and awake in this expanded consciousness with your innate joy lapping like gentle waves on the beach. Ride these waves of Joy because the more Joy you experience, the more quickly you’ll adjust to the new landscapes, the more grounded you will feel in these new vibrations. And once you do….new abilities will effortlessly awaken within you to begin creating anew, free of the mind’s old constructs. 

The mind doesn’t know how to navigate these new energies, but your Soul does because it is accepting of all-that-is without any judgment or need to hold onto the old ways of being. It revels in this freedom and the expanded version of you. With every breath you take the mind is inviting and seducing you to do the same.    

As consciousness expands, freedom abounds, and new potentials spontaneously  present themselves. Relax, allow, and savor the transitions for they are part of your eternal expansion. There will always be a new infinite You with a new frontier, for that is how the Soul thrives. Enjoy the adventure!!

Drama, the Food of the Mind

1296x728_7_Common_Behaviors_of_Total_Drama_Queen_and_How_to_Change_Them

Intense drama has become the food of the mind. It feeds upon every disaster, every problem, every dilemma. Without it, the mind feels empty and bereft, in fear of dying. Over the years, the mind has become so inundated with information and drama that stronger addictions of “need” have been established in order to survive. Without it, it fears death.

Just writing that sentence amped up my limbic system!
For those who don’t know, the limbic system is a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain associated with instinct and mood. It controls the basic emotions (fear, pleasure, anger) and drives hunger, sex, dominance, and care of offspring. Once triggered, the entire body goes on alert into its reptilian fight or flight response. The longer the limbic system remains in a state of anxiety, the more prone we are to react from violence and the more susceptible our body is to disease.

In recent years, we has become so accustomed to drama it has become the norm. When things calm down, the mind immediately goes in search of more drama, more explicit drama, more emotional drama. All to keep itself feeling alive.

The teachings of our spiritual path encourage us to simplify our lives, to remove ourselves from the drama of mainstream, and quiet the mind. We have learned that the answers reside in that still quiet space within us. But finding and maintaining that space requires a lot of changes in our lives. Changes like withdrawing from the mainstream media, less time spent on social media, withdrawing from family dramas, etc., etc.

But as soon as we withdraw and life quiets down, our mind becomes restless with its addiction for drama to feel alive. The mind isn’t comfortable in the temporary void we experience during this transition. There’s a pull to turn on the tv or fire up the the computer and see what’s going on in the world. Even our spiritual self has been tricked into “doing” things to save the world and other people. It pulls at our heart strings, drawing us into things that have no relevance to us. So we’re seduced back into the drama, albeit spiritual drama instead of the old style drama. But drama, none the less.

Withdrawing from drama requires a lot of practice, even more so if you are naturally empathic. It doesn’t happen overnight and there’s no need to beat ourselves up for failing to instantaneously shift into a new way of being. That just adds to the drama. It’s a moment by moment process and it requires self compassion. The first step is realizing the underlying cause. Once we do, we need persistent reminders to shift our perception from drama to peace within a new and different context. . . the context of our Inner Being that thrives in the stillness and silence.

There are many things we can do to shift our consciousness from drama to peace and contentment. One of my favorite it spending time in nature away from all the day to day distractions. I am blessed to live in the forest. Even a few minutes of forest gazing, as I call it, will shift my consciousness and soothe my limbic system. Listening to calming music or reading a book that transports me to another reality will also do the trick. A shower or soak in the tub…. bingo, an instant shift in consciousness. Playing with children will bring a smile to your limbic system. I’m sure you can think of many more to adapt quite easily into your daily routine.

With moment by moment practice, we’re able to reset our limbic system. We can finally relax into knowing we are safe. We are drawn into peace and contentment as the norm, rather than drama and superficial excitement. After awhile, we are no longer entertained by the drama. Instead we are entertained by the new passions that begin bubbling up from within us as creators of our own reality.

Attempting to change and create something new from within the old confines only strengthens the mind and the limbic system. Whereas creating from within the peace that passeth all understanding allows us to create a new reality for ourselves in which to thrive rather than diminish our health and vitality. We’re now creating from our divinity which has a constant flow of supportive energy rather than draining our energy via the imposed dramas of the world.

So, I ask you: 
Where do you choose to place your attention?
The drama of the outer world, or your own innate inner peace.
It really is this simple to initiate your shift in consciousness to one of well-being and creative joy that builds upon itself rather than the “need” for external stimulus. Everything you need is within you. Herein lies the Joy of Life.

Going Beyond Words

170959333f73a98d8774c3206cfed4a0

This is a bit of a test. . . to see if I’ve got the ability to write. Because I haven’t been adept enough to put what I’ve been feeling or experiencing into words for several months now. I don’t ever remember a time in my life in which I haven’t been able to write. It’s always been such an integral part of me that I always have a piece of paper and a pen tucked away in my pocket, purse, or luggage. I’ve been known to write on the edge of a grocery receipt, restaurant napkin, or a bar coaster if nothing else has been available. Because I’ve always needed to write.

So what happens when the words have seemingly disappeared? What happens when I boot up my computer with a blank screen all primed to record last night’s dream, but there are no words? Or I desire to write a poem that has no flow to it anymore? 

This is what happens . . . 

I sit and stare into the forest, allowing my feelings to stream through me without interruption. All the while my mind is searching for words like that dreaded little rainbow ball that spins on my Mac when it’s searching for something without results. 

There’s often a pull to “do” something, but nothing satisfying comes to mind. I have no interest in any of the things that used to make my heart sing. It’s as if my persona and its old program has been wiped clean with nothing remaining. It’s as if I have died and I’m hovering on the other side of the veil awaiting a new lifetime. All the while I can feel a stream of past experiences being distilled into wisdom, a wisdom that’s beyond words. 

And so, I continue to forest gaze while settled into my comfy rocking chair, allowing nature to soothe my mind with the progression of the seasons. I observe as the leaves change color, fluttering to the ground leaving the trunks and branches naked and bare, just as I’m experiencing. 

My sleep has been deeper than usual with little if any memory of dreamtime. That in itself is very unusual for me because I’ve always been a very avid and lucid dreamer. For many years, I’ve gone beyond interpreting dreams, to consciously interacting with them. Over the past few months, the few dreams I have been able to recall have all had the same theme. I’m walking away from groups of people, or bits and pieces of my old life, into an abyss of the unknown.

And then something shifted. . .

A sense of freedom, lightness, and joy began bubbling up from within me. Everything that’s happening around me has become irrelevant. I sense I’m observing it from the other side of the veil, but no longer engaged with it. I’m aware that people are each on their own soul path going about their own business without any relevance to me.  

As disconcerting as this has been, I now realize it’s all part of the divine plan. Being free of words has allowed me to drift away from the collective consciousness, out of linear time into a new quantum reality. Over the past few months, I have come to realize how confining words can be because each word tends to either judge or freeze frame a particular perspective. In the past, I would often journal my way out of difficult situations via discussions with the Wisdom of my Inner Voice. But even that voice went quiet, leaving me fluctuating between my mind’s unrest and the sublime stillness that awaits us beyond the chatter of the mind. 

Within this stillness, I’ve begun experiencing a new sense of communication that’s slowly revealing itself to me. It’s a more comprehensive sense, free of any need or desire for understanding or explanation. 

Nothing that exists in this moment need have any relevance to the next moment as it did in linear time. Instead my current vibration draws all the potentials that await me, irrelevant of what I’ve experienced in the past. And when my vibration changes, which is quite frequent due to my multidimensionality, that which is no longer relevant simply dissolves of its own accord.  

As a result, life has become a constant symphony of new awareness with energy in service to me. Rather than my having to expend my own energy and my own words in which to create. I am simply the vehicle through which energy flows, no longer the manipulator of stored energy, having to weigh it all out in order to preserve enough to survive. No longer in need of words to capture the moment, or discern the meaning of life. Simply allowing the song of my soul to create anew in every moment. 

So, it appears, I have passed the test. Words are flowing once again. Only it feels as though they are flowing from a different source, no longer streaming from the  antiquated program of the human mind. These words are deeper, experiential, and carry the wisdom of my soul. 

Will they continue to flow as they have in these past few moments? 

Perhaps so, or perhaps not. For nothing that exists in this moment need have any relevance to the next moment. This is the freedom, lightness, and pure sublime joy we are beginning to experience as our new way of being. I sense there will be plenty of forest gazing intermingled with symphonies of words that present themselves as a constantly evolving song of my soul.

The Magic of Choosing our Point of Consciousness

point of consciousness

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

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

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

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

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

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

Savoring the Experience

Artist ~ Holly Sierra

There’s a lot of hype on facebook about a new wave of energy hitting the planet. Indeed this is true. I’ve been feeling the energies of this Spring Equinox way ahead of time and I’m feeling the tingle of excitement within me.

Be aware! There are SO many distractions that can pull us away from our own INNER KNOWING. This is not a mental experience. Don’t allow your mind to get caught up in what dimension we’re moving into, how many DNA strands you have activated, nor compare where you are against someone else’s post or comment on fb.

The Truth is…. WE ARE INFINITE!!

Dimensional separation DOES NOT exist unless you choose to continue playing the game of duality. Our DNA is programmed to come online according to our own personal Soul Path. So what dimension I’m in, or how many DNA strands are active does not matter to me.

What does matter to me is that I AM aligned with my Inner Being, my Soul Being. That’s where my focus is. And if that aligns with others, that’s Awesome because we are coming together with our Soul families. But I’m not following someone else’s drumbeat just to be part of the group.

This is a FEELING experience!!! We will each be feeling and experiencing it in our own way, each according to our own Soul Path. I’m choosing to relax and savor every step of this experience, without getting caught up in the drama and hype which the spiritual community has once again stirred up.

The transition of this planet is an organic one. Gaia has her own Soul Path, her own Inner Knowing, just as we do. We are all walking a sacred path that will never be walked again. All of the Universe is watching and cheering us on.

Indeed, the path has been a rocky one. It has taken a LOT of work to get to this point. And now BeLoveds, We are Here! The most important thing we can do to rise above the old and support the new with the most ease and grace is to Relax and Enjoy Life!

Isn’t this what we came here to do? Hasn’t this been our mission all along? To live as an Embodied Soul in physicality. And this, my BeLoveds is exactly what my Soul is advising me to do . . . .

RELAX….. and ENJOY LIFE!

Transcending History

Art by Holly Sierra

Humanity is awakening from its slumber with the desire for change, the passion for transformation and the fire of alchemy. We’ve all been releasing the past and collapsing timelines like crazy over this past year. It feels like the ballon of all that humanity has been holding onto from the past is simply being deflated because the current energies will no longer support it.

For thousands of years, we have allowed those outside of us to dictate what is truth. The truth and mis-truths are now beginning to surface. For eons of time, “His-story” has been written in our textbooks and declared as truth. Whereas “Her-story” has been hidden and disregarded. She’s been walking behind the veils, hidden in mystery. But today’s world calls for a re-balancing that requires the revelations of truth with the unification and full participation of both the masculine and the feminine.

Humanity has come to the point in which we are asking: What is the Truth?
I venture to say, the truth doesn’t reside in the “story”, his-tory, her-story, or the media’s story for they are only stories. I dare say we’ve all had experiences where our families or friends gather, many stories are shared and years later the same event will have sprung into many different versions of the same “story”, depending on the storyteller. None are right nor wrong. They are simply different perceptions based on how each of us are experiencing life, just as we are all different aspects of the same Infinite Source. Therefore the stories will differ according to the storyteller.

The ancient ones told wonderful stories. We are all entertained and drawn in by a good story. So they often spoke in parables. What better way to hold our attention long enough to open our hearts to allow more Love to flow into our being.

These stories, these parables, are not sacred Truth to be interpreted as the law of the land with concrete rules of judgment and persecution. Those are the laws of man. These poignant stories were meant to introduce us to the laws of the Universe. These parables, when heard with an open heart, can stimulate the human mind to expand our consciousness to see and hear with the Divine Mind of which we are all a part. When we let go of the “story”, with an open heart and mind, the essence of the Infinite Source has a place to enter our awareness and our consciousness expands.

It is important that we know the truth. But since we are in constant growth and expansion, the truth is also in constant expansion. Do not judge or regret what has been obscured, for nothing is ever lost. By opening to that which is now being revealed and transcending the old with love and compassion, we can allow it to simply dissolve of its own accord. We need not place blame upon those who have written or decreed otherwise. Nor do we do not need to initiate new wars to bring it to justice. That is simply a waste of our precious time and energy. Instead, why not release that which no longer serves and create anew.

All the Wisdom and Truth we will ever need lies within us. Seek and ye shall find. Be still and awaken to the truth. As such, we each stand in the sovereign truth of our own Divinity.

Have the courage to be all that you are and to always live a life inspired by Love.
No one of us is more or less important than another. Together, we can walk with the purity of heart as exemplars and allow others to recognize that within them self.

This can all be done with ease and grace, free of the drama of duality’s highs and lows when we’re flowing in harmony with Source and surrendered to our heart’s desires. I’m feeling huge gratitude for all the revelations of truth. And I’m reveling in the freedom of transcending our antiquated history.

Transformation of Anger

f944d22c4346561c472a828bb12ce152

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.
