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.

God and Goddess ~ Stepping into New Roles

af3b20_e7b8a2dc80ec499bb8a9eaa6d5a4d30b.jpg_srz_400_300_75_22_0.50_1.20_0.00_jpg_srzWith this September Equinox, sandwiched between two eclipses, the God and Goddess are stepping into New Roles.

The first eclipse, a solar eclipse, is in the sign of Virgo which is the sacred domain of the Goddess. There has been much talk about the return of the Goddess recently. How she has been wounded, trampled upon and disempowered. How we need to dig deeply into the shadows to heal her wounds. But the wounds that are spoken of are human wounds that have been taken on in the name of the goddess. They are not wounds of the Goddess. For the Goddess is pure Love and Compassion. The Goddess does not suffer. She does not bear wounds. It is only the perception of humanity that attempts to fling them upon her.

During this initial eclipse the Moon Goddess kisses the face of the Sun God in a blessing of healing for all of humanity. For those who feel old wounds arising, the Goddess asks that you turn them over to Her for healing rather than taking it upon yourselves to do so, for your mind is not capable of forgiveness. It is the heart of the Goddess that forgives and She always stands ready to heal with her infinite love and compassion to open our hearts. Only then can humanity move forward in its sacred quest to reinitiate balance in our lives, individually and for the whole of the planet.

With the approaching Equinox, the Solar King and the Moon Goddess are joining their energies in the sacred marriage of Hieros Gamos. In ancient times each kingdom was ruled by this sacred marriage for the good of the people. The king was the leader and protector of the people, and the queen the goddess in alliance with the earth who ensured the fertility and abundance of the land and the people.

Since then, the quest for power has usurped the balance of earth. We no longer have a king as the protector of the people and a queen who honors the fertility of the earth. We have turned our backs upon the blessings of earth, driven to survive through personal toil and suffering.

With this Equinox the God and Goddess are stepping into new roles, offering us the opportunity to initiate balance and sovereignty once again. We are being called to honor the Sacred masculine and Sacred Feminine within each of us, and with each other. We are being called to honor our Mother Earth in a renewed relationship with all the Elementals in sisterhood and brotherhood with all sentient beings, thus opening the infinite flow of abundance without the need to gain power over one another to survive.

With the second eclipse, the earth is being embraced as the Holy Child between the the Sun God in Libra holding the balance and the Moon Goddess in Aries, giving birth to a new race of enlightened beings equal in stature to one another.

In addition, our solar system has entered a stream of gamma rays flooding us with the benevolence of the Universe. We are being bathed by an abundance of crystalline light from the cosmos as Blessings of Grace for all sentient beings. It is through this Christed Light that Divine Love is being restored within the hearts of each of us. These gamma rays are increasing the vibration of the planet to activate our dormant DNA, expand our consciousness, and awaken us to All-That-Is.

Alas!! As children of the New Earth, new playgrounds await. Our passions abound and our joyous manifestations are imbued with divine wisdom. ‘Tis a majestic earth that gives so selflessly. It is with love and gratitude that I honor her. And I bow to the royal God and Goddess within each of us for stepping into our new roles in unity with Source.

The “Father of Love” has Returned

“Wait until your father comes home!” How many times did I hear that phrase while I was growing up until I began to cower when my father walked through the door, rather than run into his arms with love and excitement. Growing up with a precocious sister and a younger brother, it seemed like I was always in trouble. So I could usually conjure up some reason to fear my father coming home. So I eventually learned how to “be a good girl” to please my father, and everyone else, just to find peace in the household.

Religion taught me that God, the Father would be standing at the pearly gates with his check list to see if I measured up to gain access to heaven. The alternative to that scared the bejesus out of me. So I was always on the lookout for ways to rack up those heavenly points. Catchy phrase we use isn’t it…. Scare the “Be Jesus” out of us. That’s exactly what it did! By fearing our Father we lost our ability to love unconditionally to Be the Christos.

Marriage did a number on me too! The man is the head of the household, the provider. And…. if you wanted to be provided for, you had to follow the rules, his rules. That phrase, “Wait until your father gets home” kept ringing in the hallows of my mind. Only now it wasn’t my father I was trying to please, it was my husband. By now I was feeling quite rebellious. So I thought, I’ll show them! I can be just as masculine, then I’ll be worthy! Poor marriage 😦  I don’t think it ever had a chance. I was already pre-programed in the archaic patriarchal paradigm.

But  I’m here to tell you, the times are achangin’ because the “Father of Love” has returned! The old patriarchal paradigm of power and control  is being swept away. As the antiquated veils of illusion dissolve we are seeing the truth of Love. The old doctrines that have been handed down from generation to generation are dissolving before our very eyes, through the eyes of Love.

I’m not throwing blame at anyone here. That’s not what Love does. I am simply opening to a new way of living…. in love with the masculine rather than fearing the masculine, within me, as well as the men in my life. No longer trying to please “the Father” for fear of rejection, but to Love the Father as I know the Father loves me.

I shall take the liberty of adding to the words of Yeshua/Jesus, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind” …… as the Father doth Love YOU.

What freedom that instills within me! The only thing asked of me is to LOVE. Without the need to please anyone else, I am at liberty to love and please myself. That’s where Love blossoms…. within me, to be shared with everyone in my life free of constraints, whether masculine or feminine. Love has no gender and love flows freely.

I experienced an interesting observation as I was writing this. I felt sick in my solar plexus and the burn gradually moved up to my throat. It became so restrictive that I was choking. How many times in the past have I stopped at this point afraid to speak my truth. I almost quit writing, but gathered the courage to continue moving through it. All of a sudden a burst of light filled my being with the essence of Love and freed my heart of it’s old restrictions. Ah the sweetness of Love… the freedom of Love.

The “Father of Love” has returned and knows no bounds. Ah, but he was never gone, it is I who am returning. . . returning to Love with my heart open wide. I now stand serene as the Mother of Love in divine union with my male consort the Father of Love, in perfect consummate harmony. Together our Love continues to expand. Together we are creating a new paradigm where the pearly gates stand wide open for everyone to enter.
