Redefining Darkness

There’s a difference between avoiding or fighting against the so called “darkness” which is perceived as negative vs. walking away from it because the concept of duality no longer resonates with me.

We’ve been taught that darkness is evil or life threatening. Therefore fear steps in and we either avoid it, hide from it, or fight against it. Avoidance is resistance to that which we judge as bad, resistance that is always lingering below the surface. Once we’ve resisted it long enough it builds to the point that it’s in our face, be it political, religious, spiritual, emotional, mental or physical. Our human self is accustomed to going up in arms to protect ourselves by fighting against it. Or, we unconsciously harbor it until our body succumbs to disease and we die a slow painful death.

In truth all energy is neutral. It is only the human with a 3d perception of duality that deems it as dark or light, negative or positive. Light differs from energy in that it ranges from dark to light with many vibrations and variances in-between. New age teachings seem to have confused the two.

As we all know human eyes can not “see” what is in the darkness, therefore we have been taught to fear the unknown. As a child, when our parents turned on the lights during a nightmare the fear usually dissolved. Perhaps this fear is as simple as being conscious vs. unconscious.

The more conscious we become, the more we engage with our soul which does not judge. Therefore we have the opportunity to engage in the world with a more expanded perception, sensing beyond the fear and limitations of light vs. dark. The more often we engage consciously the more we inch away from the constructs of duality.

Making a choice to walk away from what the human perceives as darkness allows us a more expanded consciousness to more fully engage with our soul beyond duality’s judgment of energy. It’s here that we realize all energy is neutral, therefore “I” am the one who deems it as positive or negative. . . or to realize that all energy in service to me.

I’m not one to walk away from that which has been in the dark unconscious to avoid what’s being brought into the light to be seen. What I have walked away from is the need to judge it. There is no battle. There is no negotiation. There is no need for healing. For they are not necessary when I simply go beyond the need to engage. Therefore what had been perceived as negative is now seen as neutral, waiting to be in service to me in new and exciting ways.

My choice to turn my attention away from negativity is because I no longer live in the world of duality. That simple choice transforms what I formerly refereed to as dark or negative. Does that mean I live in a positive world? What it means is that I live in a neutral world knowing all energy is always in service to me, and the darkness and light are the variances of experiences I choose to live. Perhaps a bright sunny day or a dark mystical night. All are equally valued experiences by my soul through my human physical body here on this amazing planet that has so much to enjoy.

Celebrating Contrast !

b3dcd2215c221e789cfb67bdc17859c0Humans really like their lives to be comfortable and convenient. They like things to remain the same. They don’t like change nor having to face conflicting or contrasting situations. And yet, life doesn’t remain the same.

Humanity is currently experiencing the most potent life transformation in history. As I mentioned in my most recent blog “What’s Beyond Duality?”, the planet is transitioning out of 3rd dimensional duality where it has been for eons of time into the multidimensional quantum field.

Once we venture beyond duality, the role of contrast slips into place. Whereas duality only has two choices, black or white, contrast can be likened to a color chart where there are many color choices and many variations of those colors.

The choices are no longer right or wrong, true or false, or even multiple choice. We’re now choosing from an infinite color palate. And since you would not want to live in a totally purple or red world, of course you would enjoy contrast, constantly tweaking the variations of all those glorious colors choices.

Once we realize the difference between the polarity of duality (which boxes us in) and contrast (which opens us to infinite potentials) we welcome contrast, the perception of others and the choices in life. We no longer feel compelled to hold on to what we’ve always known, judging change and contrast as a disruption to our lives. The need to fit into other people’s rules and expectations disappears. No one expects two people to prefer the same color, so why would we expect everyone to agree with the same life choices?

When we adapt to seeing the world through the eyes of contrast we realize it is working for us, not against us. We recognize it as a sacred gift. Any artist will tell you that!  A blank canvas is as exciting as vibrant splashes of color for they are both drawing us toward a more expanded expression of our Self. We begin to revel in the unknown and welcome it as the ability to live a more expanded consciousness in full blown color speaking to us from the whispers of our heart.

Moving out of duality doesn’t need to be a struggle. It can be done in small steps of variation rather than adhering to the concept of taking the leap. There is no need to keep go poking around in the muddle until we get it just right. Contrast allows us to be the artist and create life as we choose it to be, one brush stroke at a time. That’s how contrast works!

The nature of life is constantly expressing and expanding. There is no finished product, you can’t get it wrong and you’ll never get it done because we are eternal beings. Everything in our lives presents itself to expand our consciousness to enjoy more and more of what life has to offer.

We are going beyond the old limitations and it is contrast that is guiding the way. Don’t you think it’s time to embrace the changes in life and celebrate the magnificence of contrast!!!

What’s Beyond Duality ?


Duality has marched right out of our lives in a linear fashion. Like a band marching down the street never to be seen again with strains of music fading into the distance. There are no endings. No more beginnings. It’s like someone has thrown the deck of cards into the air and we’re wondering where they will all land.

It can be disconcerting at times. For our mind really likes linear time. It likes to know what has passed and what’s next in line. It wants to understand how one thing relates to another. But quantum energy, i.e. non-linear energy, doesn’t work that way.

Quantum energy has a different operating system and the mind has no control over it. When faced with the quantum field, the mind just rolls its eyes up into the head and checks out in overwhelm. So… what to do? How do we navigate these swirling energies?

Granted I’m still very new to this, but I thought by sharing my current observations it might stir something that you might also find helpful. Mind you, it is our observations that feed this new mechanism and change is what it eats for breakfast.

These past few months have been an extraordinary time of purging to make room for something new. We didn’t know what the new was, we just realized the old clothes didn’t fit anymore. So we’ve been moving things out as fast as our mental and emotional bodies would allow. And once we’re finally naked, we feel like we we’ve been transported into never-never land, floating in the abyss (where clothing is no longer needed).

The thing is… this is what we’ve come here to do and we’ve been prepared. So the best thing we can do is sit back and allow the show to begin. The first thing I’ve realized is there are no beginnings and endings. The show has always been running, we’ve just not been aware of it. So when I say we’ve been prepared, I mean…we’ve been prepared. While we’ve been in our dreamtime, free of the mental interference, we’ve downloaded a new foundational operating system with new viewing options. But much like a new Windows program, it’s of no use unless we figure out how to use it. And that’s where we’re at right now.

The main difference I’m experiencing is this:
The old program was laden with rules and in order to interact with the program, you had to understand the rules. So the question was: “What is this program capable of and how can I use it”?
The new program has a totally different operating system without the the former stringency. The new question is: “This is what I want to do, now show me how to do it!” With the new program, for every desire there are multiple ways to experience it.

What great news!!! But… can you see your mind’s eyes rolling up into your head in overwhelm again?

That’s okay because when the mind checks out, it gives the new operating system free reign. This new operating system is running with the infinite intelligence of Source. It flows in perfect harmony with our Consciousness. When we’re present, we see all the infinite choices available to us. However, when we’re unconscious all these choices begin banging into each other creating what appears to be chaos.

This is when we need to take a deep breathe, sit back and allow everything to effortlessly come to us without our mind attempting to put it all in logical order.

We’ve reached the point where many are still looking for the old operating system. But it’s gone. The energy is no longer supporting it. We’re living in the quantum field now. All the old systems, religious, governmental, financial, etc. are in flux right now. And they are not even substantial. They are all simply systems, which are easily replaced. Even CEO’s of major corporations are no longer recruiting executives who are adept at keeping things in line. They are recruiting creative people, people who are surfing the spirals.

In linear time once things pass by, they’re gone. But in a spiral, everything that’s yours comes back around, called forth by your vibrational resonance with it. And on the next round, it picks up additional components with a more expanded and delightful expression. If we simply trust enough, and not allow our minds to fiddle with it, we’ll get another chance to play with our yet to be manifested ideas… or allow them to pass by if we’ve lost interest and moved onto something new.

By living in present time without looking for the next thing in line you will realize you’ve stepped out of duality and into the quantum.

What does that mean? It means we’re interacting with life in totally new ways. Instead of living to survive in a world of limitation, we’re creating anew from our passionate desires with infinite potentials.

So what’s beyond duality? A life free of bounds. With each turning of the spiral, evolution is taking place with increased enlightenment.

Affluence for Everyone

What has happened to the American dream? Was it just a dream, as humanity continued to sleep walk? Or is the current unrest a clear sign that the masses are finally awakening? Or, are we creating a new dream worthy of a New Era for all of humanity?

In a world of duality, we’ve carved a huge divide between those who “have” vs. those who “have not”. Poverty runs rampant while waste dwindles away unused. Children are starving while royalty feasts. The homeless are freezing on the streets while executives entertain in their lavish mansions. I could go on with the accusations, but there is no need because we all get the picture loud and clear. It’s particularly present in our own lives when we worry about how to make ends meet, when it stops us from doing what our hearts call us to do, when we shrink our lives smaller rather than expanding into our true essence.

But, throwing barbs at those who “have” only expands the divide. It doesn’t do a damn thing to enhance our lives. In fact, it only escalates judgment, anger and hatred, which shrinks our already encroaching jail, pushing against our hearts like a vice. Victimhood only breeds more viscious victims resulting in violence and death. If it’s freedom and power that we want, we’ve got realize that it comes with responsibility, a responsibility to ourselves and humanity as a whole. And that, my BeLoveds, requires more than bitching about the situation. It requires a personal change in attitude and action.

Let’s begin by defining “Affluence”….an ancient word that originates from Latin: affluent- ‘flowing toward, flowing freely,’ from the French verb affluere, from ad- ‘to’ + fluere ‘to flow.’

So the essence of affluence is “flow”, the flow of our energetic birthright from Souce, which has no limits, no destination, no agenda. There are no limits!!! WE are the ones who limit our affluence by our antiquated beliefs that there is only a limited amount therefore we need to “take” it from someone else, from a higher class of people than ourselves.

What if we realized that there is more than enough for everyone?
What if everyone has the potential to be affluent, to live in the constant flow of Source in whatever means we need in any given moment? What if you are ALREADY affluent and you’ve turned your back on it because you’re judging those who “have”, leaving you in lack as one of the “have nots”?

Can it be that simple? By dropping our antiquated beliefs and judgments about money that we can be flowing with affluence… that there IS Affluence for everyone. Think how marketing would change? Politics? War? Healthcare? The list of potential change is endless and we’re the ones who can change it by aligning with affluence in ourselves and humanity.

Our alignment with the simple Universal Law of Flow has the abilty to bridge the gap between the “haves” and “have nots” to lift all of humanity beyond duality, into a New Era where Affluence is for Everyone. I’m choosing to flow in the Universal River of Affluence, how about you?
