The Alchemy of Shining the Light

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Freedom from Mass Consciousness

Joy of Life by Francois Girard

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Engaging the Imaginal Cells

818cfb12ad118ec2cc8cc18b339f4786

Once we withdraw from the constraints of the collective consciousness, dreamtime becomes a new playground for us. By sharing my most recent dreamtime with you, perhaps it will spark a new playground for you as well.

During my dreamtime:
I felt the need to move all the things off the coffee table in front of me to create a clear space. I gathered everything up and carried them out of the room. When I returned, the room was filled with people sitting on folding chairs. There wasn’t a chair for me, so I slipped into the back row and sat on the floor. My friend David was in the last chair and offered me a seat. I shook my head “no” because I was happy to be seated on the floor out of sight. There was a man at the front of the room projecting visuals on the front and side wall. While I was out of the room he had asked the group, “Who sees a dot surrounded by a box on the front wall?” Everyone had raised their hands. He had then asked, “Does anyone see anything on the side wall?” No one had raised their hands. Because this had happened before I entered the room, I wasn’t aware of it. The man then asked me, “What do you see on the front wall?” I said I see a black dot on a white wall. He then asked, “What do you see on the side wall?” I see a huge cell filling with new imaginal cells that continually expand and morph into new cells. And I am able to commune with All-That-IS via these cells allowing me new perceptions of all that surround me. The professor at the front then asked, “Does anyone else sees or feels this?” No one raised their hands. He explained, the main reason I was able to experience this is because I was not in the room when he asked if anyone saw the dot on the front wall. His suggestion locked their brains into seeing an enclosed dot. Whereas I had not been preprogrammed, therefore I was able to see the reality beyond the limitation.

As I came out of this lucid dream, I was aware that I was still in the dream, communing with this expanded cellular activity. My eyes remained closed as I laid in bed playing with this new sensation. When I eventually opened my eyes and crawled out of bed, I realized I am able to commune with All-That-Is within everything around me, just as I was doing with the cell. I’m sensing everything alive, even the table, the walls, the floor. Nothing is solid, unless I believe it to be so because someone had programed me to believe that via the collective consciousness. What fun it is to be living in a world that is this alive, this active, this responsive!

This is not a dream. This is our reality which has been stunted due to the beliefs of the collective consciousness. I recall living in this active reality as a child, until I was told otherwise. Perhaps you do too. And now, as we step out of the collective consciousness of duality and linearity, we are becoming aware of a whole new reality that is being created by our sovereign creativity.

This is not something we can force via the mind. It requires us to withdraw from what we have always thought to be true via the programing of the mind and simply allow the new to reveal itself. You wonder why you have been so sleepy lately, why everything you have always known is falling apart, why you feel empty and alone? This is the result of withdrawing from the collective consciousness. Allow the emptiness and the temporary loneliness to foster the space for your imaginal cells to emerge and create anew.

Do you choose a different life? A different reality? It’s as easy as allowing space for your imaginal cells to respond to your desires.

Evolving beyond the Bifurcation of Earth

Bifurcation

To many the bifurcation of earth may be a new concept. Within the new age community this is one of the new buzz words of the moment. For several years there’s been a lot of talk about a new earth. Some feel that humanity is ascending to new earth as a group, leaving no one behind. There are others who feel that we are in the midst of a bifurcation of earth with two different groups of humanity formulating. One attempting to maintain the old earth. The other choosing a new earth.

At first creating a new earth and allowing those on the old earth to continue as they are sounded exciting to me. I was ready to move forward while allowing others to live as they choose and awaken at their own rate. I was never a fan of evangelizing a new earth to shepherd everyone into one golden moment of ascension. But something’s been niggling in the back of my mind and this whole idea of bifurcation began feeling “off” to me. As is my usual practice, I tossed a few questions into my cauldron of wisdom and allowed it to bubble until clarity ensued.

The clarity finally came to me during this recent dream:
I was packing a small box of crystals and stones, which I considered to be wisdom keepers, for my sister. When she saw what I was doing she shook her head and said, “I don’t want those.” I realized my sister doesn’t have any interest in what I have to offer so I returned the box to its resting place and replied, “Okay that’s fine.” This confirmed that my sister and I are living in very different realities. I do not resonate with her reality, nor she with mine and that’s perfectly okay. Then I was packing a second box of crystals and stones for my daughter. She also shook her head and said, “I don’t want those.” This was another validation of living in different realities. As with my sister, I felt at ease about it. I harbored no judgment, nor any hopes of my daughter and I ever working together spiritually as I had once desired. I recalled having realized this about our relationship a few years ago which made me sad at the time. Now I have no emotional reaction about it at all. I fully bless her soul path as she’s living it and I bless mine. Each of us simply living our reality of choice. Neither one better than another, simply different choices.

Upon awakening in the morning I realized this answered my question about the bifurcation of the earth.  Bifurcation: is defined as: the division of something into two branches or parts: the bifurcation of the profession into social do-gooders and self-serving iconoclasts.

What I realized is that bifurcation is simply another form of polarity. The reason this new earth/old earth model doesn’t resonate with me is that I have gone beyond the concept of duality. There is no either/or for me. Neither my sister nor my daughter are living the same reality as I am. And they are not living in the same reality with each other. Therein lies the question…. who goes to which earth? It looks to me like between the 3 of us there are 3 different realities, 3 different earths. None more right or wrong than the other. It’s simply a matter of choice.

Those of us who are aware of new earth are no longer living in duality, which is one of the constructs of the old earth. By breaking free of the old earth matrix, we are breaking free of duality. We are entering the time of the many, not the time of oneness where everyone is required to agree to the same reality. Nor a separation of those who are considered awake vs those who are not. For who defines or determines who is awake and who is not, for there are many degrees of awakeness.

I feel that the original idea of the bifurcation of earth was a stepping stone away from the confines of an old earth that has been cycling and recycling for eons of time. The old earth/new earth model initiated  “Releasing the old Collective Consciousness”  as mentioned in my prior blog, and inspired new potentials for all of us.

There are far more realities than the “old earth” and the “new earth”. Our evolution is happening so fast that as soon as we all agree on a new concept, there are multiple new potentials already presenting themselves. Attempting to fit everyone into a prescribed new earth reality very quickly becomes nothing more than an expanded old earth.

Thus, I feel we have already evolved beyond the limitations of the bifurcation of the old earth or the new earth. We each create our own reality. And each reality may change from one day to the next, from one moment to the next. Humanity has the opportunity to create as many new earths as there are conscious creators.

As humanity is awakening, we’re moving beyond the old collective consciousness, each person doing so in their own way with their own divine timing. I recognize that not everyone is ready for a huge leap and we each have a role to play. Thus I honor each person’s choice, including my own soul’s passion and desire to expand beyond this current reality. No longer held back by the belief that we are all One, with one agenda, and one new earth. Rather than attempting to restrain everyone into only one, we are the many, constantly expanding our consciousness. We each have the freedom to evolve and live in whatever way we choose. As we do so, old timelines are collapsing and consciousness is reforming accordingly for each of us.

We are all Master Creators! As Sovereign beings, we each have the ability to create our own reality according to our soul’s desires, free of all limitations. Do not allow your self to be influenced by the perception of others based on a yearning to be part of the group. Create your own new earth. Breath your divine consciousness into it. Live your own reality. And watch as those of us who resonate with each other naturally find each other’s playgrounds, living in harmony with each other rather than attempting to fit into someone else’s reality. And thus, we have the opportunity to live All That Is.

Releasing the old “Collective Consciousness”

ascension

 

What a restless night of tossing and turning! I was caught up in a never ending dreamtime that was abnormally “sticky”. Whereas I’m usually quite adept at rewriting my dreams while in the midst of them, it took me 3 cycles through this dream to eventually break free of it.

In the first cycle of the dream, I was experiencing my shoulders curling forward, my neck was sore, and I was unable to stand up straight anymore from the burden I was carrying. I had taken on way more responsibilities than I was able to handle. I realized none of this was mine and I was able to return all the responsibilities to those who have been placing it upon my shoulders throughout my life. Once I did this I was able to stand up strong and straight again.

In the second cycle, I realized I not only allowed this overburdening of responsibilities, it gave me an egoic spiritual boost by thinking that I’m on a mission to awaken others and save the planet. Ha! Tricky tricky ego! Time for me to realize each person is exactly where they need to be on their own soul path, each playing their unique role for a much bigger picture than my ego is able to ascertain.

In the third cycle, while I was overwhelmed with all this unstuck energy churning through my body I heard Gaia say to me, “Here, allow me to handle this for you, my dear one.” In that instant my root chakra opened up and gravity emptied me of what was never mine to begin with, clearing my womb to birth anew.

Later that morning as I was remembering the dream I realized, Gaia does not need saving!!! She’s not the old earth. She has already vibrationally ascended and no longer locked into a 3d reality which she held in place in service to us as a learning environment. Gaia only asks for our respect and trust in her as we’re given the opportunity to ascend along with her and awaken to ALL of Who We Are.

What many are referring to as old earth is actually the “old collective consciousness” playing itself out. There is no old earth, only stale old consciousness that will continue recycling through its 3d duality until the very last human decides to release it. In the meantime, everyone who is choosing to break free and clear of the old collective consciousness is ascending along with Gaia and expanding into our multidimensionality.

As a child I was fully aware of my multidimensionality. Like many of us, when we entered school, it was no longer acceptable to play with our “unseen” friends. So we stepped fully into the collective consciousness and blocked everything else out. At some point our soul says. . . beloved human, it’s time to wake up and remember all of who you are, because this is what we’ve come here to do in this lifetime.

At first our “unseen” world and all of our old friends begin to fade back into our awareness just beyond a self-placed veil. We know it’s there, present in dreamtime or obscure visions, where we’re able to interact with it beyond the constructs and limitations of the mind. Eventually we connect with our Inner Being and the collective consciousness no longer takes precedence in our lives. For awhile, we’re living a dualistic life attempting to find a balance between the two. At some point we learn to fully trust our Inner Being and it’s as if the two flip. What used to be dreamtime is attracted into our present energy field by our Inner Being and becomes our reality, no longer veiled from us. And the collective consciousness, that was our reality is seen as if through a veil. We know it’s there, but it no longer has an impact upon us and we’re no longer engaging with it unless we choose to do so.

All of this is an organic process that’s been woven into our DNA before we incarnated. As the vibration of the planet increases, new codons of DNA are activated and our consciousness expands. We naturally awaken to our multidimensionality and more of who we are. Each of us is experiencing this expansion in our own unique way with divine timing based on our soul’s passion and desire to know more of itself. It’s not something we can force, nor is it something we can block anymore. Either one of these attempts will only create unnecessary pain and tribulation in our lives. By simply releasing the old collective consciousness and allowing this innate process, it has the potential of unfolding with ease and grace along with Gaia.

Gaia’s advise to me has always been . . .
“Ride my waves of consciousness and keep your life pure and simple.”

Surf’s up BeLoveds, Consciousness is expanding, and the Sun is brightly shining!!!
