Words that have Gone Out of Vocabulary

letters
As a writer, one of the biggest changes during my process of “Ascension” has been my vocabulary. The new age community has created a whole new dictionary of words to attempt to describe this very natural and innate process that goes beyond words.

As a community that desires to share this experience, we do need to use words to express ourselves. The interesting thing I’ve noticed is how those words continue to evolve for me as I evolve. While I was recently editing some poetry I wrote a few years ago, I noticed a few particular words that no longer resonate with me.

I realize how conscious I have become of the energy of words. I have to sit with my words and “feel” into them to find resolution. I can not push the “publish” button until I am fully at peace with the energy of each of the words I have written.

As one would expect, the word “God” is one of the words I had to resolve within my self. Because it’s a word that evokes so many different emotions within people, I’ve hesitated to use it. I’ve played with lots of different substitutions, words such as Source, Universe, and….. wow, I can’t even remember all the others because they have slipped out of my vocabulary to the point I can not recall them.

What I finally realized is that the word itself is not as important as the clarity of the consciousness within me. I ask you to re-read that sentence and sit with it for a moment. The word itself is not as important as the clarity of the consciousness within me.

Words are neutral. It’s the energy we project with our words that affect other people. It’s also the energy with which we hear a word that affects us. Most humans are totally unconscious of their constant chatter. Thus all they are projecting is unconscious noise. There are others, like religion, the media or the new age community, who consciously use words to influence people.

Most of my writing is a personal dialogue between my human self and my GodSelf to gain clarity within me. I have finally settled upon a self-created word: GodSelf. Because I know I AM God in human form expressing as my unique Self. By using a self-created word I’m bypassing all the antiquated energies attached to the word God.

As I’ve moved through the process of my Embodied Enlightenment, there are many words that have gone out of my vocabulary because they no longer resonate with me.

Two of those words are pain and suffering. You won’t find me writing about pain or suffering because I don’t resonate with the need to suffer in order to learn, grow, or expand my consciousness. They were useful experiences in awakening me to the truth of who I now know my Self to be. But they are no longer part of my reality. I have discovered much easier ways to learn and there are no badges handed out at the pearly gates for those who suffer the most.

When I used to read posts on facebook about pain and suffering I often felt the energetic seduction pulling my human self into these old emotional dramas. Especially if I was in a void space after having let go of old programing or beliefs. The human likes to fill all that emptiness with drama and emotions in order to feel alive.

Indeed, I have compassion for pain and suffering. But compassion does not require me to join you in your suffering. Otherwise, there would be nothing but suffering in this world. Compassion is our ability to see the passion of love and joy and say, come this is the way home.

Therefore, words like compassion have been redefined. And the words pain and suffering have slipped out of my vocabulary, replaced with words like well-being and thriving.

Other words that have slipped out of my vocabulary are new age words used by specific groups. Indeed they are useful within the group. But I’ve never been a group person. I occasionally play in groups, but I have always followed my own inner compass.

Consequently, I expect my truth and vocabulary to continue to change as I continue to expand my consciousness. But instead of my vocabulary expanding, it has continued to simplify. I don’t need new age words to converse for they too are going out of vocabulary as fast as new ones are coming in. Instead, much like the rest of my life, my vocabulary continues to become more simple, wise, and heart-based. Therein I place my troth.

You May Think this is Crazy, but . . .

Surreal

We’ve all had surreal or magical experiences at one time or another, what other’s might call “strange” or “crazy”. They may have been something simple like thinking we know a person we’ve never met before. Or it could be something as expansive as a near-death experience. They may have happened in our childhood or anywhere along the way. They may appear in lucid dreams, while walking in the forest, during an accident, emotional trauma, while driving your car, or walking down the street. 

The experience itself is not the utmost importance. How we choose to interact with the experience is what’s important. Whether we ignore it, or realize it as an important part of our soul’s journey. 

Most of the time, we keep the craziest of the crazy experiences to ourselves, for fear of being judged by others. We think there is some protocol for reality by the collective. And to some degree that is true. However, per my experience, humanity’s consciousness is expanding and there are many who are hungry to hear these experiences to validate their own secreted stories to set them free.  

All of these experiences are our Soul’s guideposts along our journey. As such, sharing them with others may validate or inspire them to be more open to acknowledge their own guideposts and create a new reality and lifestyle for themselves.

Indeed, there are some very raw and sacred experiences that we choose to savor and keep to ourselves so as not to sully them. Or, we may wait until just the right moment that spontaneously presents itself to share with a few bosom intimates, as per our inner guidance.  

Most of the things we deem crazy aren’t nearly as crazy as they first appeared once we bring them out into the light of day and share them. The more we share, the more grounded and real these experiences become for us and for those around us. Until one day, the surreal becomes our reality and we no longer fear being judged because we stand in integrity with our Soul’s journey rather than the collective consciousness. And then, the stories begin to flow like honey for the Soul rather than crazy mind chatter.

When you decide to begin sharing your stories, and I hope you do because humanity needs to hear them in order to expand the consciousness, make wise Soul choices with whom and when to share. At first, you may feel like a fledging and share with a select few. Eventually, you will become embolden and sovereign enough to stand in your truth and share, without regard to what others may think or say. 

I have been seeing a lot of friends inching their way toward sharing their treasured experiences. That excites me because it gives us a whole new foundation from which to play together. Reality as we know it is simply an agreement between enough people to call it real. When we give up our need for the approval of others, EVERYTHING becomes real to us. We become like children again, living in total wonderment open to ever-expanding possibilities. 

Per my experience, I have one suggestion to make should you choose to share your stories. This is your story, your experience, and your Soul Wisdom.  It is no less or more important than anyone else’s for each of us has our own unique Soul path and wisdom to share. When you choose to share it, OWN IT. Stand in the truth of it. 

Don’t sully it by beginning with, “You may think this is crazy, but. . .” That only sets the stage for judgment and doubt. Rather, speak it as your truth without concern for what others may think. How they receive it is up to them. But by setting them up for “crazy talk”, that’s exactly what it becomes, fearful crazy-making rather than your truth laced with pearls of wisdom. 

I’ve been seeing some of the most sacred experiences being set up and shared as “crazy talk” and that saddens me. There is nothing crazy about Soul experiences. They are sacred and meant to be honored and shared when called upon. When you respect and honor your self, others will respond appropriately.

So, from my heart to yours, I implore you, become comfortable with embodying your surreal experiences. Claim your own sovereignty and inner knowing. Then, when it feels right, share them as the truth and wisdom of Who You Are

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.

Turning of the Cosmic Wheel

Cosmic Wheel

As I was sitting quietly with the energies of the full moon and the current planetary dance in the cosmos, my head kept unconsciously tipping to the side. It took a few moments for me to realize I was being shown a new perspective. The vision that was being presented was a turning of the cosmic wheel with the energies spiraling in a more gentle, yet quickened pattern.

As many are aware, we have been experiencing the speeding up of time. Things are happening much more quickly. We think something and bam! It shows up! Thoughts, emotions, and experiences. . . coming and going, manifesting and dissolving with the blink of an eye. For some, this is exciting because we feel like we’ve been preparing for this for many lifetimes and we’ve been on a stationary treadmill going nowhere for a long time. For others this is very confusing and problematic because they’re attached to doing things in a certain way, holding on for dear life. And things are just not working the way they used to.

With the wheel having moved past the old cog, we have moved beyond much of the human mind’s conglomerate that has held things in place. We have moved beyond the clutches of the cabal, organizations, and systems that have attempted to control humanity for a very long time. Everything has been brought into the light, in plain view, allowing us to make new conscious choices. The only thing still holding them in place is our repeatedly telling the same old stories. When we cease telling these stories (ie complaining) the stories die, so does the old reality. This is true of the collective as well as our own personal lives.

It feels as if the mind is now reacting in a totally different way in response to our alignment with a new spoke radiating from the center of the wheel. It is our Divinity that is at the center of this wheel and we’re tapping into it as Sovereign beings with a new vista of infinite potentials radiating from Source. This release from the old cog frees us from the need to fight for survival, allowing for an ease and gentleness that we’ve not experienced before.

Now that the wheel has turned, the only thing holding us captive to our old ways of being would be continuing to reiterate the old stories and maintain our old habits. Therefore, I find this to be a perfect time for me to simply life, shift my routine to be more present in the moment, and flow with Source. What wonderful timing this is, for the seasons are also in the midst of changing. The shift to longer or shorter days, depending on which hemisphere we’re living, makes this transition even easier for us if we take advantage of flowing with nature’s innate guidance.

Oh how intelligent the universe is and how often we try to override this Divine Intelligence with our own need to control things. Perhaps this is one of those habits we can allow to dissolve with the turning of the wheel beyond the old outmoded cog.

I’m sitting here sipping a warm chai on a chilly morning with a huge smile on my face, excited about this new expanded consciousness with its infinite potentials. You gotta love how the physical human body speaks to us in universal code language if we’re present enough to comprehend it. All it took to catch my attention with this “Turning of the Cosmic Wheel” was a little head tipping and a wink from the Cosmos.

What’s Beyond our Anxiety?

93a0c77e2cc181d9b35c9546fcffe68b

With so many storms buffeting the planet, our personal lives and even our inner sanctuary, I have noticed several times recently that I am feeling quite fine, then a wave of anxiety flares with no particular rationale.

In the past I have typically felt into this energy attempting to discern what it is that has knocked me off my center onto my keister. That just sends my mind into the gerbil wheel looking for ways to fix a problem that leads to another problem that leads to yet another problem. Round and round we go…never really losing that extra weight on my keister.

If something has come up for clearing, instead of opting for the gerbil wheel I’ve learned to surrender it to my Soul allowing it to distill the wisdom as I’ve mentioned in a prior post “Distilling our Human Experiences into Soul Wisdom”. 

Quite often I merely shift my attention to something more pleasant. Generally that works just fine. In which case it was only a momentary distraction. And if there is a real problem, no doubt it will circle back around with an even better solution because I’m in a more receptive mode.

Most recently I’ve learned to pause, take a deep breath, and go BEYOND the feeling, or as some might say, through it. I don’t attempt to embrace, interpret, or change the feeling. I simply go beyond it. What I often find is empty space. In which case this anxiety was never mine and I’m free to ignore it.

What I have been sensing lately when I go BEYOND the feeling is a totally new energy that I’ve not experienced before. With all these solar flares and our planet having moved into the photon belt it’s no surprise that we’re experiencing new energies. The anxiety I feel in these instances is my human self reacting to the unknown with no frame of reference on how to proceed. So it gets caught in a spin of fear and anxiety. But when I go beyond these feelings they simply dissolve.

In reality, these new energies are expanding our consciousness. There is nothing to fear because these energies are streaming in as a gift directly from Source through the portal of our sun. Meanwhile, the photon belt is rich with photons of crystalline light that are activating our dormant DNA. So what feels alien to my human self is actually me awakening to more of Who I Am.

Therefore, what I experience when I go BEYOND the aforementioned feeling of anxiety is a sense of excitement and childlike wonderment in a new energetic playground of expanded consciousness. No more gerbil cages for me! Not-uh!!!  Not when I have a whole new multidimensional playground all aglow to explore and experience!!!

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.
