Savoring the Experience

Artist ~ Holly Sierra

There’s a lot of hype on facebook about a new wave of energy hitting the planet. Indeed this is true. I’ve been feeling the energies of this Spring Equinox way ahead of time and I’m feeling the tingle of excitement within me.

Be aware! There are SO many distractions that can pull us away from our own INNER KNOWING. This is not a mental experience. Don’t allow your mind to get caught up in what dimension we’re moving into, how many DNA strands you have activated, nor compare where you are against someone else’s post or comment on fb.

The Truth is…. WE ARE INFINITE!!

Dimensional separation DOES NOT exist unless you choose to continue playing the game of duality. Our DNA is programmed to come online according to our own personal Soul Path. So what dimension I’m in, or how many DNA strands are active does not matter to me.

What does matter to me is that I AM aligned with my Inner Being, my Soul Being. That’s where my focus is. And if that aligns with others, that’s Awesome because we are coming together with our Soul families. But I’m not following someone else’s drumbeat just to be part of the group.

This is a FEELING experience!!! We will each be feeling and experiencing it in our own way, each according to our own Soul Path. I’m choosing to relax and savor every step of this experience, without getting caught up in the drama and hype which the spiritual community has once again stirred up.

The transition of this planet is an organic one. Gaia has her own Soul Path, her own Inner Knowing, just as we do. We are all walking a sacred path that will never be walked again. All of the Universe is watching and cheering us on.

Indeed, the path has been a rocky one. It has taken a LOT of work to get to this point. And now BeLoveds, We are Here! The most important thing we can do to rise above the old and support the new with the most ease and grace is to Relax and Enjoy Life!

Isn’t this what we came here to do? Hasn’t this been our mission all along? To live as an Embodied Soul in physicality. And this, my BeLoveds is exactly what my Soul is advising me to do . . . .

RELAX….. and ENJOY LIFE!

Letting go of “Letting go”

07dbbb01795c912e5caddaff4ff7e9908

My facebook newsfeed is rampant with posts advising us to go into the mysterious darkness and “let go” of all those and shadows that have been lurking in our subconscious.

This emphasis on “letting go” has been going on for a long time now, as we’re letting go of the old and opening to the new. Any transition requires this of us, whether it be a transition from one home to another, one relationship to another, one job to another, or one state of consciousness to another. This is happening personally and collectively. Humanity is in the midst of one of the biggest transitions of all time as is demonstrated by the collapse of the old establishment. Thus there is a lot to let go of.

However I feel like we’re caught in a bit of a stutter here… let go… let go… let go… let go…. let go. . . . . .

Based on what I’ve been seeing in my facebook newsfeed there is so much emphasis on digging deeply into the darkness of our emotional wounds and shadow selves that it feels like we were getting stuck in a cycle of forever looking for what’s wrong with us rather than seeing ourselves as Divinely perfect, thus foregoing the Joy of living in the here and now.

I am not suggesting that we don’t let go of things, for that is the natural flow of life in order to grow and expand. It is important to release the emotional baggage which holds us back, but continually focusing on the psychological games of the mind only stagnates our lives. There was a time when the vibration of this planet was thick and dense. It took a lot of work to dive deeply into our unconsciousness to heal our old wounds and confront our shadow selves.

As the vibration of the planet rises, our unconsciousness is naturally rising to the surface without the need to go digging so deeply. Thankfully, this has become a much more organic process. What’s required of us now is to disengage from all the distractions, remain fully conscious, and allow these old energies to move up and out without engaging. I don’t live my life constantly digging into my past looking for things to heal or let go of, as so many spiritual teachings are suggesting. Instead I flow with ease and grace, allowing everything to naturally release in the moment as it makes itself known. In this way energy is in constant creative flow.

Birthing is an inside job. And thus it is for all Master Creators. Our desires arise from within and are nurtured within the mysterious darkness of the womb drawing everything it needs to manifest. The Black Madonna is the sacred womb of all creation, the darkness from which all things are born, simultaneously filled with Love and Light illuminating our hidden desires and releasing that which no longer serves us.

Dear Beloveds, go within, allow your secret desires to become illuminated via the Light of the Black Madonna. Surrender to her fertile womb of creation. Let go of the arduous work of “letting go” and allow it to resolve organically. See what happens when you refocus your attention to the seeds of desire that are sprouting within you rather than the arduous work of continuing to dig into that which has now become compost. Trust the process to allow your boldest dreams and desires to fully manifest with ease and grace.

WE are Master Creators. We are here to birth the new and we can’t do that when all of our focus is on letting go of the past. Isn’t it time to look forward, let go of “letting go”, transcend the old, rise above and finally, finally, finally move beyond it to birth something new!!!

Entering 2016 with a Heart as Light as a Feather

Maat by Lisa Iris

As the year 2015 draws to a close, so many of us are breathing a huge out-breath of relief, looking forward to a new beginning. There’s no doubt about it, it’s been a tough year, a year riddled with violence from so many different subtleties of life. And yet, my heart feels light as a feather. How is that possible?

I have to admit that the violence in Paris shook me to the core. In reality, it was a grand awakening for for me. While others went into fear and anger, my heart exploded with compassion. Yes, I have compassion for the victims and their families, not just those in Paris but for all the violence happening in the world. In addition, my heart’s expansion reached out with passionate love for those who are perpetrating the violence. Those who are in so much pain that they are obsessed with acting out in such violent ways.

When I first read about Paris, I was in such a state of shock that my mind could not comprehend such actions against humanity, therefore my mind disengaged in the overwhelm of it, allowing my heart to take the lead. And for that I shall forever be grateful. These acts of terrorism shook me to the core and at the core of everything is Love.

Paris brought everything to light. All the underlying pain and hatred that’s been brewing under the surface for eons of time. Finally brought into the light. No, it’s not a pretty sight, but it is finally being seen, finally being talked about, personally as well as globally. Yes, there are those who are spewing words rooted in fear. Ugly words are flying in all directions. But there are also those, like myself, who have awakened to more Love and Compassion.

At the end of each year, I always spend some time in silence. It’s not a yearly review like I used to do in my younger years, searching for a new year’s resolution on how to improve my self. Instead it is a time to feel into the current energies. What’s flowing and what’s not… for myself as well as the collective.

This year, my heart is floating light as a feather. Why? Because as chaotic as the energy feels as it’s swirling around me, it’s on it’s way out. No longer stuck. It’s all flowing… up and out. Of course there are those who are still attempting to hang onto the old, but this antiquated energy has been freed and its collective momentum can not be stopped.

So what remains in the center of this swirling vortex of chaotic energy? The perfect vacuum to suck in all the Love and Compassion that’s flowing from the collective of OUR hearts. The Love and Compassion to soothe humanity through the tough times of transition being experienced by those who are currently awakening. There is nothing we need do. We are not here to rescue. We are here to breathe new Love and Life into the collective consciousness and cheer everyone on as they rise from the ashes to discover their own sovereignty. A community of victims will never survive, but a community of sovereign beings can rise to create a new world of Peace and Prosperity.

The new year of 2016 is stirring the passion of my heart because for the first time in a very long time our Light is shinning brightly and Love is flowing freely. I am entering 2016 with my heart as light as a feather. Perhaps you’d like to join me in a few moments of silence, heart to heart, to expand our collective consciousness as the Creators of a New Earth with hearts as light as feathers.

How often are you Inter~fearing?

10291851_10203822411786831_6280580730400421250_nThere are infinite ways in which we interfere with the gracious flow of life. We do it in our personal lives. We do it with our friends and family. We do it with nature. And most often, we do it with our physical bodies.

The Universe only knows benevolence, so life is ALWAYS flowing in hot pursuit to maintain Well~being. Meanwhile, we are constantly throwing everything out of balance with our arrogant beliefs that we know better.

Nature has an innate way of rebalancing itself. Humanity seems to think it can overpower the elements of earth that have created us. But with each action there is a natural reaction to maintain balance that is beyond our control. Rather than learning to live “with” nature as the indigenous people do, we continue to inter~fear in an attempt to create a false sense of security. Meanwhile, the weather has gone berserk, earthquakes are increasing and homes are slipping into the sea in response to our inter~fear~ance. Once we stop wasting our energy attempting to control life, all of our energy will be free to create in new and exciting ways.

The balance of our physical bodies is constantly obstructed with the latest trendy diets, super foods, supplements, and medications. Don’t get me wrong I’m fully on board for eating healthy to support my Well~BEing. But I’ve learned to trust my body, rather than fear it. I don’t fear that it will get ill. I don’t fear that it will get fat. Nor do I fear that it will grow old and decrepit. Yes, my body will age, but my body has no desire to suffer. My body lives in grace because I love my body, respond to its simple requests and I trust my body’s intelligence to do what it knows best without my inter~fear~ance.

We even disrupt the perfection of our innate Spiritual essence with the latest new age gizmos, rituals, prescribed practices and human machinations. There is no doubt we are in the times of high transition. We are being flooded with super charged flows of energy. But we put these processes in place “before” we incarnated. What makes us think we need to tinker with the flow of our Divine Intelligence?

These transitional energies can feel intense at times, but suffering is optional and only arises from our personal resistance. Instead of inter~fearing with the process and stirring up resistance (i.e. lack of trust), why not soothe the body in gentle ways to remain fully open and receiving. Deep breathing opens those cranky spaces that aren’t used to energy flowing through them. Quieting the mind with a few minutes of simple meditation will free those rebellious thoughts to fly on unattended. Or a quick cat nap is often all it takes to disengage the old patterns and foster a gentle expansion of consciousness with ease and grace.

Life is sweet and its expansive flow is our creative playground. Once we realize that, we’ll be able to find a new sense of balance with all that is and put fear to rest. Then we’ll never feel the need to inter~fear again.

5D in Action

Image

Like many of us, I’ve been asking, “What does 5D look like?”
So I sat down and visioned into it. Here are a few of the clues that excite me.

From our current perspective, 5D is often illusive. That’s because it’s fluid, non-linear, and non-permanent.

In the world we live in, things are solid. We’re accustomed to having to work hard to create things that are permanent and always there when we return to them. Life requires effort, builds upon itself, but degenerates slowly over time. Everything is logical, labeled and in its appropriate box, including our persona. We feel the need to explain everything. We manipulate energy and attempt to do the same with life.

Imagine a world where you are a Master Creator…. a world created via thought without effort or manipulation. Imagine a world where your well-being is an organic state of being. Imagine a world where your creation is unique and perfectly suited to you. Imagine a world that’s present as long as it serves you and then dissolves of its own accord when you remove your focus from it. Imagine a world that flows with ease and grace, free of manipulation, with an infinite abundance that you can tap into whenever you choose.

That world is present, here and now!
A new relationship with your mind is what’s required to fully engage. Your mind is accustomed to running the show based on past experiences, both personal and the collective consciousness. I suggest you invite your mind to co-create with you, in service to You, rather then the mind as the master. With a little (or big) shift from the antiquated beliefs of the collective consciousness, to the sovereignty of your inner knowing, creation becomes a whole new revelation.

If this feels like too big of a leap for you, here are a few steps you can take in that direction:

What if you celebrate your uniqueness rather than attempting to fit in? Poof! 5D in action.

What if you give up the need to know and trust in the intelligence of life? Poof! 5D in action.

What if you begin to “listen”, really listen, and respond in the moment, rather than react from the past to manipulate your future? Poof! 5D in action.

What if you stop efforting and enjoy life as it presents itself? Poof! 5D in action.

What if you remove the things from your current environment that no longer serve? Poof! 5D in action.

What if you honor that your body knows well-being as it’s innate state of being? Poof! 5D in action.

You get my drift. You can take the leap. Or you can take small steps away from the old constraints into the expansiveness of a whole new paradigm. One way is no better than the other. That’s another aspect of 5D… whatever you choose, it’s ALL Good!!!

5D is no longer illusive… it’s not your future… it’s here and now. It’s all about choice. Perhaps you’d like to join me. I am 5D in action.

Everything is in transition… including Holidays

Image
Today is Thanksgiving in the United States and the first thing I want to give thanks for is my courage to disengage from all holiday expectations with the freedom to celebrate in a way that brings me Joy and Happiness.

After reading a variety of facebook posts, it became apparent that holidays have a way of trapping us into repetitive, often undesirable, scenarios. We continue traditions that no longer serve us simply because….well….because it’s how it’s always been done. Sometimes there’s a comfort in that, to resurrect the sweet memories of the past. Other times it’s a reenactment of unhealthy behaviors.

Holidays are meant to be a time of celebration. We all celebrate in different ways, culturally, religiously,  ancestrally, familially, and personally. There is no one way to celebrate. So why do we get caught in the same old repetitive ways?

Oft times, it’s a matter of guilt. We’re intent on trying to please other people or afraid if we choose differently, we will hurt the other members of our group. Did it ever occur to you that others may feel the same way? Perhaps no one has the courage to suggest something different. Perhaps that person could be you.

For many years, I loved cooking Thanksgiving dinner and inviting everyone who didn’t have family in the area to join in. One year, I was overwhelmed with other things in my life and being the hostess extraordinaire felt like a responsibility, rather than an act of love. That was the first year I stepped away from tradition and created one of my own, which was much more simplified.

After living in foreign countries where the holidays didn’t alway jive with the ones I’d grown up with and continued to perpetrate, I began to see holidays from a whole new perspective. There were specific things I loved about certain holidays, things that really rang my bells. And there were things I was happy to leave behind.

As a result, I have boiled down those old traditions to their true essence and fine tuned how “I” want to celebrate them…or not. In some instances I totally eliminated holidays. And I don’t hesitate to change a date. If the people I want to spend time with are unavailable on the scheduled holiday. I move the holiday to a more convenient day and time. Who chose these random dates anyway?

I’m not a big proponent of present day Christmas. But I love celebrating the Winter Solstice. So I took all my favorite things from Christmas and created a grand Solstice celebration that feeds my soul. As a result, it’s become my favorite holiday, free of any expectations.

It’s time to realize that everything and everyone is in transition… including the holidays. If you’re waiting for someone to give you permission to transform your holidays into something more satisfying and celebratory… consider it done. I give you permission to do whatever rings your bells and makes your heart whoop! And now I suggest YOU give yourself permission to be your authentic self. By doing so, you give everyone else permission to become their authentic self. That, my friends, is the best gift you can ever give.

Our Legs of Divinity


Wow!!! What a journey of transition we’ve been on! Now here we are being carried forward on our final legs. And I mean that literally.

Our first awareness of this journey was a SPIRITUAL Awakening. Something in our hearts began tugging at us. The old ways of religion no longer felt fulfilling to us. Our Souls felt confined and limited. We knew there was something more. So we we began to search. Perhaps other religions, gurus, books, workshops, spiritual groups….

Then our MENTAL bodies kicked in with it’s incessant chatter, “…..but it’s always been this way, you can’t change things…. blah, blah, blah.” So we initiated meditation to clear our minds of the chatter and the old beliefs that were never ours. Replacing them with mantras, affirmations, vision boards……

By now we’d gone deeply enough that the cauldron was stirred and the dregs of EMOTION were rising to the top. All of humanity across across the world began to revolt with waves of fear, anger, victimhood, suppression, grief, sadness…..

This final leg of the journey requires us to take action. It’s time to honor and become the care-takers of our amazing PHYSICAL BODY. It’s never been about leaving the body to float out into the cosmos. Anyone can do that. We do it all the time in our dream state. We came here to Consciously emBODY our Spirit, as God in physical form, in total well-BEing.

God is pure Love. Anything that is not of Divine Love needs to be transcended. The only thing holding us back are the antiquated belief programs of our human mind. Once we totally plug into the Universal mind, we become BODIES of LIGHT walking around in these extraordinary physical bodies with arms and legs to enjoy a multi-dimensional, multi-sensual planet that we created eons ago.

THIS is the New Earth that we’ve been talking about for so long. It’s no longer a dream. We see it on the horizon, we’re experiencing blips of it. But it requires taking action in a wHoly integrated physical BODY of CONSCIOUSNESS in order to become a full time resident.

BRAVO to us, my BeLoveds. Our dream has been made manifest and we are walking toward it fearlessly on our Legs of Divinity!!!
