It Doesn’t Matter

butterflies

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

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

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

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

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 When we realize these systems are outdated and let go of our past to live in the present moment, we are free to let bygones be bygones.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

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

New Roles of Compassion

compassion

We have been witnessing one disaster after another, more so in this past year than ever before. Despite all the chaos, I have continually been guided to hold the high road, to shine the light, to remind others of the joy that is equally present.

I don’t tune into the media’s frenzy, engage in political or religious debates, or fight for causes. Nor do I judge those who choose to do so. I simply turn the other cheek, as Yeshua/Jesus says. I turn my face away from that which I have no control over and do what I can do in the presence of my own life and my immediate surroundings. I continue to do what my Soul is guiding me to do. And for each of us that may look very different, for we each have our own unique soul path.

However, with all the current disasters there are moments I question what feels like my lack of compassion. That’s when I remember the conversation I had with Quan Yin years ago with her reflections on compassion:

“Compassion is often misconstrued as sympathy or pity, which draws us more deeply into the stories of victimhood. But true compassion is quite the opposite. Compassion honors the sovereign right for each person to experience life according to their own soul’s journey. When we choose compassion we are free of judgement and there is no such thing as a victim, for both parties are playing a role in their soul’s growth. True compassion is fostered in our acceptance rather than our scrutiny. When we listen with the intent of truly hearing one another, compassion can find a place in our lives, giving birth to the unconditional Love and acceptance of all human beings, especially ourselves. That, my love, is the ultimate freedom that comes with compassion”
“So how does compassion couple with forgiveness?” I ask.
“Forgiveness is the ultimate act of letting go and freeing ourselves from the endless cycles of judgment, blame, shame and guilt. Judgment stems from our expectations and beliefs. It’s our own expectations, not someone one else’s, that set us up for the fall. Forgiveness is not directed toward another. It is a precious gift to one’s self. For-giving is the giving forth of Love. Once we love ourselves, compassion becomes a natural way of life. When we live in unconditional love and compassion, there’s nothing to forgive. You see, it’s all rooted in Love.”
“Well, that’s certainly a new perception. I always thought forgiveness was about someone else, us absolving them for what they did.” I replied.
Quan Yin smiles, “I think you’re confused, dear one. That’s called Love.”

 

Even with that knowing I will occasionally pause and question my soul’s guidance. How can I possibly post something joyful on fb when the rest of humanity is in despair? Where is my compassion? Should I not be feeling the loss others are feeling?

That’s when my Soul popped in with an answer:

“Humanity is moving through its own chaos and turmoil as it transitions into a new world. If you were to emotionally hook into every disaster present on the planet you would soon become lost in the anguish, despair and misery that is prevalent. If you gave away all your energy and resources, then who would be available to forge a new path and light the way for others?

YOU are compassionate by nature. 
There is nothing you need do to prove this to yourself or to others. There is no such thing as a compassion yardstick to measure how compassionate you or anyone else is. If you are not acting in a way that others consider to be compassionate, it’s because there is an old concept of compassion. You have been taught that compassion requires you to give yourself away in order to be compassionate in the eyes of others. You have since learned otherwise.

You have learned that the heart will always act compassionately free of the interference of the mind which is simply ego’s way of making you feel good about the person it thinks you should be. True compassion is innate. It is who you are and you demonstrate it with a humility in ways you do not even realize.

Your true compassion is the expression of your Soul, reacting as your GodSelf, seeing all in divine order. Source does not lower the vibration to match others. Source holds the highest vibration and says. . . come, come join me here in the joy of life.”

 

Therefore, I see myself in a new light of compassion. The same way the soul is compassionate, simple and pure, without lowering my vibration to match those around me. Each has their own way of expressing compassion. My expression is one of shining the light on the path of divinity that is available for all of us, without which we would all be wallowing in despair.

I share this because I can feel the angst of so many who are being pulled into the mire when their soul is asking them to be free of it. This is especially true of the empath who feels “everything”. That doesn’t mean we don’t reach out a helping hand. It means we do it with joy in our hearts because we see something much better for all of humanity. It means we honor the divinity of each person’s unique soul path. It means we are free of the old teachings of what is required to be a “good” person. It means we can hold out our hand just as Source does and say. . . Come, come join me in the Joy of Life.

Embarking upon a New Flight Path

 

Rainbow clouds

I am a very prolific and lucid dreamer. I say that in regard to the dreams I’ve had ever since childhood. Big dreams, dreams beyond other people’s imaginations, dreams often poo-pooed by others. Because of that I often relegated those dreams to the shadows while living what others call “real life”. But in recent years those dreams have sprung out of the shadows unceasingly vying for my attention once again.

This began nearly 20 years ago with a repetitive dream night after night that would not allow me to avoid it. Once I acknowledged it and brought it into my meditations, the dream began to grow and expand, taking on a life of its own. Since then there are others who have begun talking about a similar dream. That dream is living what many refer to as New Earth.

Living on New Earth requires a lot of changes from the normal human perspective, the one I had bought into as “real life”. Like many of you, I’ve broken away from most of the old belief systems created by mass consciousness. I’m no longer living according to man made laws, rather remembering and living according to Divine Law. On a more personal level, I’ve created a very different life style as well. A lifestyle that aligns with my perception of New Earth, no longer needing to work hard to live a happy and fulfilling life.

In the past few months my dreams have been fine tuned to reveal the deepest most core beliefs that needed to be released in order to step fully into the dream I incarnated with, the dream I intend to fully embody within this lifetime.

I share with you a dream I had a few nights before the solar eclipse. Perhaps there is something here that resonates with you, either consciously or unconsciously.

During this dream: 
I was traveling with two people, one of whom was my father. We each had a duffle bag that was long and narrow, much like a body bag, that we were going to check as baggage. While the others were busy with something else, I opened my duffle and a pair of men’s shoes fell out that one of my former lovers had left behind a long time ago intending to return for them. I was debating what to do with them. I wasn’t able to make a decision, so I set them aside on the floor. I then pulled out a computer device and transferred some data to a smaller devise which I tucked into my belly pack. As I was zipping it closed, my father walked up and asked what I was doing. I told him I felt better having this with me in case the baggage got lost. I realized as I said that, I no longer needed the duffle. I was done with it. I already have everything I need. I then turned and walked toward the flight gate while the other two were busy rearranging all the stuff in their duffles. When I looked down at my ticket, it was nameless and I had no identification. Without looking back, I walked through the gate. That was the last I ever saw of my travel companions, my duffle or my lover’s shoes.

Along with being a prolific dreamer, I’m also a prolific journaler. First thing in the morning, my computer is in my lap with a pot of coffee or tea at my elbow. Dreams are recorded, brought into my meditation, and given a life of their own to speak to me in a more conscious way. These have always been some of my most intimate Soul conversations.

This dream said the following to me:
I am free, no longer a bag of flesh and bones with DNA inherited from my human biological ancestral linage. I Am a multidimensional being with my own Divine DNA, a unique and sovereign Soul being, ready to take flight in new and exciting ways, free of the old matrixes that have been holding me back. 

The men’s shoes were the amalgamation of all the men in my life who were my most sacred teachers. It was important for me to remove them from my body bag. The shoes were not discarded. They were simply waiting for the owner to retrieve what is theirs if they so choose. For although I still hold a special place in my heart for them, I am now a sovereign being, neither male nor female, both male and female. I am the embodiment of Source as my own sovereign Soul Being.

This is the second dream I’ve had within a week about walking away from people into my own realty without any desire to tell them where I’m going or invite them to join me, with the awareness that we each have our own unique Soul path.

As a result, I have become totally honoring of other’s Soul path without the need to understand or change it in any way. I realize how obvious it has become to observe how others shift when they step into my energy field. Sometimes they can’t move away from me quickly enough. Other times they linger without any words and that’s enough. Or they may initiate some kind of conversation and wonder how they got there. Knowing this, I can simply ALLOW the other person to lead the way, without any efforting.

If I resonate with them for my own soul growth or expanded consciousness, I will engage. Otherwise, I do not engage nor attempt to change myself to fit onto their path for the sake of a relationship. I trust that if anyone resonates with my sovereign self or my soul path they will ask, otherwise I do not share my inner wisdom. In some ways you might think this makes for superficial conversations between everyday people. When in reality it makes for genuine conversation and intimate connections between people who are interested in Soul growth rather than human based egoic validation. By doing so, the people we draw into our lives facilitate each other’s expanded consciousness, love and joy.

I have walked away from much in my life, people, homes, jobs, health issues and old beliefs. Now it is time to walk away from my old persona to take flight, much like a butterfly that is no longer a caterpillar. I am aware that not everyone is choosing to walk through this gateway. That’s okay because we each have our own unique Soul journeys, each one of equal import.

For those who choose to walk through this flight gate, it is solo as a sovereign being without any baggage. The sovereign being passes through the eye of the needle naked, alone, in serenity and simplicity, having left everything behind after surrendering it all to their GodSelf.

Once I settle into my seat I notice that although the landscape has changed, nothing was lost, everything gained, as I dream my new life into being perfectly aligned with with All-That-Is in a new playground of joyous creation. As a Sovereign being, with a heart fully open, I glance back at the gateway and bow in gratitude to my human self for the courage to step through.

Although the seats on the transporter are solo, there are many on board. However, we don’t realize that until we’ve already settled into our own sovereign seats before lifting our vision to look around. When we do. . . Voila!! We realize although we are sovereign beings, we are never alone!

Distilling our Human Experiences into Soul Wisdom

JosephineWall

As I was falling asleep a few nights ago I recall feeling like I was the LA freeway with a multitude of timelines moving through me, much like all the cramped lanes of traffic with cars jutting from one lane to another. I wasn’t aware of the specifics of these timelines, simply aware that they existed within me. I was sensing the merging of timelines, much as the freeway going through the city eventually merges from the congestion of multiple lanes to only one lane the farther it gets from the city. I knew there was nothing I need do as I slipped into dreamtime.

As I moved through the following days memories of certain periods of my life began resurfacing. This happened often enough that I put aside whatever I was doing and sat down to be fully present with each of these memories as the observer without engaging. Whenever I did this there was a freeze frame, of sorts, and I was able to observe the layers of what I had experienced at that particular time. To my surprise, it was NOT what I thought had happened. What I remembered was only a tiny aspect of the multifaceted event that had taken place.

One of the most important things I’ve learned since my spiritual awakening many years ago is the mind’s propensity to judge and label things before putting them in linear order based on its past experience. Whereas the Soul lives in the present with an expanded nonjudgemental perspective. When I surrender to the Soul, my human self has access to this expanded perspective. Taking it one step further, when I befriend and trust the orchestration of my Soul, the process of living as a Soul in a human body becomes one of ease and grace.

Therefore, as I was experiencing these memories I asked my Soul, “What is the purpose of my remembering so much of my past right now?” I have a very intimate relationship with my Soul and I often get direct answers from my inner voice or via my journaling. Other times these answers surface in dreamtime while free of the constructs of the mind. This time I got the answer in a book I was guided to read.

While reading the book “Act of Consciousness” by Adamus Saint-Germain through Geoffrey & Linda Hoppe, I came upon a passage that clarified things for me. “The divine distills every experience into wisdom.” Taking the liberty to paraphrase it further: The soul wants to experience just for the sake of experiencing. It doesn’t need to validate itself for it is already complete in the knowing that it exists. The soul takes everything the human experiences, distills it into its pure wisdom, drinks that in and falls more deeply in love with itself, again and again and again with every new experience.

It became clear to me that as a conscious multidimensional observer I am currently remembering my past in the same way my Soul experiences life. I am being blessed to experience all of these timelines/stories running through me while simultaneously being distilled into their wisdom. I get to choose if I would like to continue each timeline with my new judgment-free perception, or if its purpose is complete and ready to be dissolved.

Some of these timelines which I thought had been resolved occasionally circled back around into my consciousness. That’s because timelines are not as linear as we think. Just like the cars that jut back and forth between lanes on the freeway, there are aspects of ourselves living in multiple timelines that need to unravel from one before they can be released from another. This is THE lifetime in which we are clearing and distilling ALL timelines as we transcend our human mind to expand into our multidimensional Self Knowing. This is a sacred gift from our Soul that we’re not usually conscious of until after our human death.

However, this is a gift that is ever present and happening behind the scenes for all of us AND we have the ability to access and utilize it while still alive in these human bodies. All it takes is surrendering our human mental perspective to that of the Soul’s. Sounds simple, eh? It is. True spiritually is always simple.

It is only the mind that turns spirituality into arduous tasks such as healing wounds, shadow work, affirmations, incantations, etc, etc. . . for fear of losing its self importance. Although our mind may think it’s in control, it is short lived. Perhaps that’s why it fights so hard for self validation. What the mind does not realize is that it’s being offered a promotion, rather than a death threat. Even most of what we call our spiritual practices are being run by the mind. Therefore, we are awakening and communing with our Soul in altered states of dreamtime, meditation, napping, nature and things such as these, until we break free of the constructs of the mind to consciously realize and embody our Divinity.

The Soul is eternal, free of judgment, without any need of validation. When we surrender to our Soul we know we are always on the right path, our own unique path of Enlightenment. Notice I said, “path OF Enlightenment” not “path TO Enlightenment” for enlightenment is not a destination, it is our infinite growth and expansion. According to the Soul we can’t get it wrong because it’s all human experience being distilled into pure wisdom. We are each experiencing life according to our Soul’s journey. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, for each is on their own Soul journey to be honored just as we honor ours.

The past few mornings I’ve awakened with a sweet smile on my face, feeling the innate pleasure my Soul feels as the first rays of dawn glisten across the forest, listening to the harmonies of birdsong, enjoying the fresh morning breeze across my face while still snuggled under my warm duvet. Soul embodiment allows the Soul to feel and experience as the human, and the human has the gift of the Soul’s distilled wisdom which we call Self Knowing. This might be what some call “Seeing through the eyes of the Soul”. For me, it is living heaven on earth, enjoying physicality with the gift of the totality of my Soul’s wisdom distilled from my human experiences which I now realize are all sacred.

~ Note:
A little over a year ago I wrote an article called Letting Go of “Letting Go” . I now realize that was a precursor for what I am experiencing today. If what you’re reading doesn’t quite resonate with you perhaps reading that article can offer you some groundwork. Everything I write is in the moment. As I grow and expand, so does my awareness. It is not meant to be written in stone, nor bound in a text. It is simply my personal Soul’s journey being shared for those who may resonate with it. We each have our own Soul journey, our own perceptions, and our own distilled wisdom while experiencing life in our own personal ways. May your heart always be open to hear the voice of your Soul.

The Love Affair of the Soul and the Human

Tree Spirits by Liza Paizis

Last year at this time I had one of the most lucid and profound dreams I’ve ever experienced. During this dream, a former lover from many years ago was walking toward me. I could feel an abundance of love coming from him. The closer he got to me the more love I was feeling. At some point I realized this love was not coming from him. He was simply the reflection of my love for my self. As he continued walking toward me this love became so overwhelming fear burst forth from within me. Fear that it would overpower and kill me. I wanted to scream out, “Stop! I can’t take anymore.” But the words would not come. From somewhere beyond this fear I knew I needed to simply allow it to engulf me. The only thing I could do was surrender to this overwhelming, overpowering destructive force of love. Once I released all resistance, I did indeed die.

I melted into a puddle on the floor. He who had appeared as my old lover disappeared. I was naked and alone in an empty abyss. The old me had died. Everything that was not of love had been obliterated and died along with me.

And then little pin points of light began to appear all around me, creating a mandala of sorts. The pattens kept changing, much like a kaleidoscope. Some of these pieces were glowing from within. Others were rather dense and murky, gaining clarity as they were drawn toward me from out of the darkness. I observed with fascination as this process continued, until I realized these were all aspects of me, pieces of me. Many of them had been hidden in the shadows, tossed away by my prior judgements. Others had been locked within walls that were now instantaneously melting from the Love radiating from within me. I watched as all of me, all of my aspects gathered together into wholeness once again dancing in beautiful patterns of radiant color and light. At this point I fell into a very deep sleep and slept for many hours.

When I finally awoke, life looked and felt very different to me. This was not a dream. This was the realization of my Self as the purity of Divine Love and the acceptance of all of Who I Am, as my Soul knows me to be. I could not have orchestrated or thought this into being with my mind, even from within a meditative state. I could only do this from an expanded state of consciousness. Therefore my Soul gifted me with this lucid dream. The gift of knowing that I Am Love and all the aspects of me are loved and honored without any judgement. This knowing that it’s safe for All of me to come home, to share the experiences that life has offered me, all the stories, all the pain, all the joys. Each one a facet of the Love and radiance of Who I Am.

Now here I am a year later and what a year it has been!!!
All these pesky aspects that have been awakened or released from their walled in prisons have been elbowing their way into my heart to be enveloped in Love. Some of them have been an absolute joy to embrace. Others, I cringe to say, have pulled me into their own darkness before I was able to see clearly by the spark of Love that was always present. The gift of Divine Love is that I have surrendered the fight. My arms are always wide open no matter what presents, or how it presents. Love always knows what to do. Therefore I simply surrender it all to Love and allow it to sort itself out without the need to defend or interfere.

This has been a time for diving deeply into realizing more of my Self and integrating this new expanded awareness. Nothing else matters to me anymore. It’s as if it doesn’t exist. A few days ago I tried reading a story someone wrote about her spiritual journey. In the past this would have been very engaging to me but it now feels very old and boring. That’s how my old stories feel to me as well. I have no interest in them or in the mainstream world that is no longer my reality.

A few days ago I asked myself: What do I want to do now that I have this new awareness? What reality do I choose to create? Today this question feels unimportant to me. It feels like it was coming from my human restlessness. How much of that restlessness is the human’s need to feel worthy of itself? My current perception of Love has quelled that question. Quite frankly I have no desire to “do” anything. I am simply basking in this new realization of who I Am. I don’t know what my life will look like from a human perspective and I feel no hurry to take any action in that direction yet. 

This morning feels very quiet, free of any external noise, free of any thoughts. I’m feeling the deep contentment of “I Exist, I Am, I Am Here.” I’m sensing my human aspects and my Soul embracing this new passion with and for each other. I feel no desire to take any action right now, no desire to “do” anything. Instead, I’m feeling drawn to savor this relationship, to go more deeply into this passion and expand upon it.

While reading the book “Act of Consciousness” by Adamus Saint-Germain through Geoffrey & Linda Hoppe, I came upon a passage that clarified things for me. “The divine distills every experience into wisdom.” Taking the liberty to paraphrase it further: The soul wants to experience just for the sake of experiencing. It doesn’t need to validate itself for it is already complete in the knowing that it exists. The soul takes everything the human experiences, distills it into its pure wisdom, drinks that in and falls more deeply in love with itself, again and again and again with every new experience.

Last year at this time when I had what I call my Enlightenment Dream, I realized “I Am Love.” I thought that was the ultimate sense of loving one’s self. Indeed, that was true at the time and. . . I have continued loving my self more and more and more. This is an ongoing expansion of Love, a love affair between the human and the Soul. This is the true relationship I have always been searching for.

I sometimes think I would like a partner. Then I realize I really don’t want to live with anyone else right now. I thought I did, but that was my old dream of home and family which I’ve already experienced in this lifetime. My ultimate desire is a relationship with my Self. I was thinking how nice it would be to share my experiences with someone or to offer my love through my actions with another.

In many ways I am already doing this. Isn’t that what my daily journaling is? Conversations with my Soul. Conversations with my I Am. Conversations with the different aspects of my Self, the aspects I have created to experience more of who I Am. What I am doing now is embracing all of my self into wholeness once again, consciously distilling all the stories into their wisdom and loving my self again and again and again.

Indeed, the Soul has already done this. But my human self has only recently become aware of this. Through the grace of my Soul, there is nothing that needs to be done, no searching, no processing. Simply allowing these aspects to present themselves, to come out of the human shadows to be loved and accepted, just as the Soul has already done. Like the prodigal’s daughter returning home, this is a sweet experience. It need not be difficult. It need not take any effort. I realize, the more I sit quietly gazing out into nature, allowing the space for this to happen, the more effortless it becomes. Ease and Grace has become my way of being and Love is Who I Am.

After so much struggle in my life, how simple and easy this feels to me now. How satisfying. How fulfilling. How empty I feel of the stories and the human yearnings. And how full I feel of my Self. Enlightened Embodiment. This is what it is. Embodying All of Who I Am, here and now in this physical body. Human and Divine in sweet delicious consciousness.

The Joy of Death

Art by Jan Burgess

While rooting around looking for something in one of my desk drawers, I came across a folder of accumulated notes. I don’t remember what I was looking for. It was the result of the looking that struck my fancy.

I opened the folder and began shuffling through the bits and pieces of paper. Some were paper clipped together, others were stuck in there haphazardly, without any specific order. The more I read, the more I realized they were notes from my past life.

I say past life because nothing I read pertained to life as I am now living. Most were spiritual notes, affirmations or bits of journaling. There were a few sketchy business plans. And the notes from a teleconference I had taken. This folder held the notes of where I’ve come from, my past life while still living in this physical body.

A huge grin spread across my face with the realization that I am no longer living a life that needs lists, notes, affirmations and business plans. That was my past life. In my current life I am living in the moment. I Am the creator of this life rather than the victim of it. In this life I am no longer a spiritual seeker, for I am aligned with Source. In this life I trust my Inner Guidance without the need to search for opinions from others. In this life I am a Sovereign being making heart choices free of any perceived obligations. In this life I realize energy is in service to me, I am no longer attempting to control it or direct it, I can simply choose it.

I didn’t need to read every piece of paper, for I knew there was nothing of value in this folder anymore. Instead I created a small fire pit with some kindling out in my garden. One by one I fed the bits and pieces from that lifetime into the fire. Once the last spark was gone I covered it with dirt and returned it to the earth. From earth you are born, to earth you return.

I then went back inside and opened my clothes closet. There hung the costumes of a persona that no longer exists. These were all bagged up and carried out to the charity shop. A bathroom drawer with makeup that hasn’t been touched in years all cleared out, thrown into the trash. Last of all I returned to my desk and filled the trash can with old files that belonged to she who has passed on. She who knows who She is without the need for diplomas, certificates, records and validation.

Death can be a sweet thing when we realize it doesn’t really exist. We do not die, we simply transform, evolve and continue to expand our consciousness. How many past lives have I already lived in this one? Too many to count. The difference is that I was never conscious of dying to the old and transforming into the new. This time I Am fully conscious of putting a past life to rest with ease and grace. The best part about this was that none of this was on my “to do” list. I did not angst over clearing out my closet or my desk drawers. When it was time I simply stepped out of one life into another and released the old manifestations thereof. There was no struggle. There was no mourning. It was an act of Joy!

Ascension’s trek up Golgotha

cebarre-poweroflove-left

Each and every foot step of our journey to ascension has brought us closer to the crest of Golgotha where Yeshua was crucified and arose three days later as the resurrected Christ.

Golgotha, translated as “place of the skull”, is where we are being asked to surrender our human mind to that of our Christ Consciousness. This is not a crucifixion as in ancient times. For our mind has an honored place in our enlightenment. However, with ascension the mind is no longer the one in control. Instead it is being called into service to our Christ Consciousness.

This trek up the hill of Golgotha has been a very long journey, carrying the burden of the cross of humanity upon our backs over many lifetimes. Each and every step has required the shedding of another layer of who we thought we were, bringing us ever closer to our enlightenment.

Some of us are now standing on the crest of Golgotha for whom the journey has come to an end. We have arrived. Having laid our heavy burdens down, we stand upon the crown of the skull looking out across the horizon of a new landscape as the Christed Ones.

There are many who have not yet begun the trek up Golgotha, perhaps they never will. And there are those who are still in the process of climbing. Those of us who now stand tall upon the crest of the mountain are the way showers who have forged the footsteps that so many are now stepping into on their personal journey. It is not up to us to pick up their crosses and carry them. For each soul has its own unique purpose here on earth to be honored as sacred.

This is it, Beloveds! 
As we gaze across the horizon we realize the arduous part of our journey has reached its culmination. It’s time to massage our blistered feet and dust off our time worn clothes. We have been transformed. As Christed beings having endured the alchemical process of becoming a LightBody in physical form, we are no longer dependent upon outside resources to survive. As divine humans the eternal Source flows thorough our veins as sovereign beings.

What does this mean for us now?
Our roles have changed. No longer absorbed in the process of ascension, we are free to pursue that which makes our hearts sing as the creators of a New Earth. The innate knowing of who we truly are has been the passion that has continued to carry us through all the tribulations of many lifetimes. This passion to live life fully as Christed beings has finally bubbled to the surface where it awaits our command.

We are as children with a whole new multidimensional playground with which to play and create. Our human mind has been freed of old constructs and there are no limitations to what we can create. New worlds are being birthed via our infinite imagination. And when the others reach the top, in their own divine timing, we will have created a most beautiful place to land with exquisite vistas in all directions with an open hearted invitation to join us.
